The Skateboarder Who Dr. Phil Hit With His Car Is Now Getting Pretty Aggressive — Lawsuit Time??

Look out, Dr. Phil! The skateboarder that the TV doc apparently hit with his car on Friday morning is now taking to Instagram with a far more serious — and aggressive — story than what was originally reported after the incident occurred in the Universal City area of El Lay. Related: Dr. Phil Sits Down With Sinead [...] Look out, Dr. Phil! The skateboarder that the TV doc apparently hit with his car on Friday morning is now taking to Instagram with a far more serious -- and aggressive -- story than what was originally reported after the incident occurred in the Universal City area of El Lay. Related: Dr. Phil Sits Down With Sinead O'Connor Terrence Bembury has taken to his IG account to show some pics of the aftermath of the accident in the hospital, and in the captions he's providing more information about Dr. Phil's role in the whole ordeal. Take this one, that he posted yesterday evening (below): The caption there in full reads (below): "Dr. Phil just hit me with his car this morning. I filled a police report.. And injury.. Waiting for the dew process.. And will contact TM Z" Bembury needs some help with spelling -- and he also tagged the pic with hashtags #gymrat and #gainz -- but, OK... And the second pic, too (below): With the caption (below): "Thank Dr. Phil.. It felt amazing getting hit by your Mercedes.. Now I'm going on two days of missing work.. SmH. I meet with my Lawyer Monday.. This is a 100% winnable vase since Dr PHIL ran a stop sign and was in the wrong lane of traffic" That caption includes tags #swole, #pump, and #fitfam. Gotta tag everything you can on the 'Gram!!!!! Regardless of the goofy captions and tags, Bembury is going to have a serious case against Dr. Phil here, especially if it bears out that the TV doc wasn't supposed to be driving where he was, and Bembury was hit while in the crosswalk. We'll see if anything ever comes of it, but based on those captions, it sure sounds like Bembury is serious about meeting with his lawyer and finding a financial resolution to this issue. In a comment on one of his IG posts, he also wrote this (below) responding to another user who asked for more details on what happened: "yesterday morning, Dr. Phil ran a stop sign and was in the wrong exiting lane while I was crossing in the cross walk, then shook my hand and took off, he never got out the car, checked too see if I was injured, didn't even ask for my name, cops told me he needed to stay until cops came and that he should of called himself, and the fact a shuttle driver stopped for me and he passed the driver and I even shouted and stuck my ✋ out, him being oblivious to all this means he either was on his phone or just straight hit me knowing my obvious presence and didn't care, either way he broke traffic laws which resulted in him hitting me" Uh-oh! Might be time to pay up to settle up, Dr. Phil... [Image via Instagram.].....»»

Michael Fassbender Domestic Violence Allegations From "Afraid" Ex-Girlfriend Resurface!

Care to explain, Michael Fassbender? On Friday, the actor's domestic abuse allegations have resurfaced after DailyMail.com published March 2010 Los Angeles court papers where ex-girlfriend Sunawin Andrews sought a protective order against the X-Men star.

On Friday, the actor's domestic abuse allegations have resurfaced after DailyMail.com published March 2010 Los Angeles court papers where ex-girlfriend Sunawin Andrews sought a protective order against the X-Men star. According to the documents, the model details two incidents in 2009 where he allegedly got physical. Related: Michael & Alicia Had Instant "Chemistry" When They First Met In November 2009, the now-40-year-old allegedly drunkenly dragged Andrews with a car because her ex-boyfriend said hello to them at dinner. She recalls: "Michael was driving my car dangerously fast and screaming at me. I begged him to stop the car in fear of an accident or for my children who were home asleep... As we got closer to my house I put my car in stop. Got out walked around the car to pull key from ignition. Michael drove of[f] dragging me along from the car... He stopped after he realized I could not walk and got out of car. He picked me up and put me in car as my friends pulled up behind us. They stayed the night to help calm things." The mother says the incident left her with vaginal bleeding, a twisted left ankle, blown out left knee cap, bursted ovarian cyst, and a hospital bill totaling $24K. In July 2009, Fassbender allegedly threw Andrews "over a chair" after she woke him up. The alleged incident -- which she says left her with a broken nose -- happened after the thespian received an award, presumably at a film and music festival in Ischia, Italy. Andrews filed for a protective order against Fassbender on March 12, 2010, asking that he stay at least 100 yards away from her and her family. She reveals in the petition: "I am still recovering from my injuries and am afraid for my safety." Although the court granted Andrews a temporary protective order, she ultimately withdrew her request on April 6, 2010, one day before a scheduled hearing. She currently lives in Los Angeles and works with an animal protection organization. As we reported, Fassbender married actress Alicia Vikander in October 2017. [Image via Sean Thorton/WENN.].....»»

Venus Williams Blames Pretty Much Everyone Else In New Court Documents From Her Wrongful Death Lawsuit!

Venus Williams is refusing to go down for the fatal car crash she was involved in.

While footage from the scene has since cleared Miz Williams' name in the criminal investigation, [...] Venus Williams is refusing to go down for the fatal car crash she was involved in. As we previously reported, the top ranked athlete was involved in a nasty car accident last month where a man died because of the incident. While footage from the scene has since cleared Miz Williams' name in the criminal investigation, it appears as though the estate of Jerome Barson is still suing the tennis champ for allegedly causing the fatal collision. Related: Venus Loses Wimbledon Title Amid Car Crash Drama Unsurprisingly, Venus is currently fighting the wrongful death suit as she has since accused at least one of the victims of not wearing a seat belt at the time of the wreck. In new court documents filed by Williams' team, the A-lister didn't specify whether the deceased or his widow was the one not buckled in. Regardless, the filing claims the injuries from the crash could've been greatly reduced if the passengers in the other car had been wearing seat belts. Speaking of the said injuries, the 37-year-old also stated in the docs that Barson's wife's wounds were in no way bad enough for the woman to seek damages in a lawsuit under Florida law. We're not sure how Linda Barson feels about this accusation as it's said she walked away with a cracked sternum and a shattered right arm. Oh, and let's not forget about the broken wrist, hand, and fingers Linda received as a result of the collision. The legal paperwork also took shots at the Barson's vehicle. Apparently, Venus' legal counsel is alleging that the couple didn't adequately maintain and repair their vehicle which, in result, made it a safety hazard. The California native continued to place blame elsewhere as she defended that plenty of other cars caused the hectic traffic situation so she shouldn't be held solely responsible! Looks like Venus has quite the defense team on her side!! [Image via WENN.].....»»

In an in-depth interview with Deadline, the 54-year-old director admits that he is “guilty” for putting Uma in the car “but not the way that people are saying I am guilty of it.” “It’s the biggest regret of my life, getting her to do that stunt,” Quentin explained. Quentin went on to explain that he did not force Uma to drive the car and he truly believed it to be safe. “None of us ever considered it a stunt. It was just driving. None of us looked at it as a stunt. Maybe we should have, but we didn’t. I’m sure when it was brought up to me, that I rolled my eyes and was irritated. But I’m sure I wasn’t in a rage and I wasn’t livid. I didn’t go barging into Uma’s trailer, screaming at her to get into the car,” Quentin said. He added, “I told her it would be safe. And it wasn’t. I was wrong. I didn’t force her into the car. She got into it because she trusted me. And she believed me.” Quentin noted that while they are still unsure why the accident occurred, it may have been in part due to a last minute change in the cars direction on the path. “It was heartbreaking. Beyond one of the biggest regrets of my career, it is one of the biggest regrets of my life,” Quentin said. Read all that Quentin had to say on Deadline.com......»»

A Colorado Springs family has spent the past several weeks trying to get a mystery woman to stop taking shits in their neighborhood for no apparent reason. Related: Girl Gets Stuck In Window Trying To Retrieve Her Own Poop! Cathy Budde says her kids first spotted "The Mad Pooper" seven weeks ago, unapologetically popping a squat right outside their house. Speaking to KKTV, she recalled: "They are like, 'There's a lady taking a poop!' So I come outside, and I'm like ... 'are you serious?' ... 'Are you really taking a poop right here in front of my kids!?' She's like, 'Yeah, sorry!'" Hey, when you gotta go, you gotta go! Only The Mad Pooper didn't stop going. Like some kind of a trained animal, the woman would jog by the Budde house at least once a week and leave behind human waste, and Cathy can't help but laugh at the situation: "Two other times we've caught her -- caught her yesterday -- she changed up her time a little bit because she knew I was watching." Hmm... so, The Mad Pooper can adapt her bowel moments to avoid getting caught. Fascinating… Related: Puppies Might Be Giving People Diarrhea! Seeing no other option, the Budde family got the Colorado Springs Police Department involved in the messy case -- and authorities are equally as bewildered. Sgt. Johnathan Sharketti said: "It's abnormal, it's not something I've seen in my career. For someone to repeatedly do such a thing ... it's uncharted territory for me." Officers have asked the family to take photos of the jogger, who they say could be facing charges of indecent exposure and public defecation, in hopes of identifying her. Stumped as to why the woman keeps fertilizing their lawn, the Budde family admits they've tried everything they can think of to get her to stop. Cathy added: "I put a sign on the wall that's like 'please, I'm begging you, please stop.' ... She ran by it like 15 times yesterday, and she still pooped… There's plenty of public restrooms less than a block away from where she's targeting. This is intentional." Hopefully police identify The Mad Pooper so we can find out the motive. [Image via Universal Pictures.].....»»

The Academy Award nominations are out, and unless your thing is having a fifteen-dollar beer at an indie theater surrounded by twenty-year-olds decked in ironic aviator glasses and head-to-toe ironic Carhartt, the list of noms might look like a random collection of words that when deciphered spell out “The worst thing ever.” I don’t know what Ebbing, Missouri is, and I don’t want to. While #OscarsSoWhite is yesteryear’s moral conundrum in the industry and this year it all about #OscarsSoRapey, the Academy members aren’t about to have a plain yogurt repeat of 2015 and 2016, when all the major nominees were white. Most notably this year the popcorn flick Get Out is nominated under four categories – Best Actor for Daniel Kaluuya, Best Director and Best Original Screenplay for Jordan Peele, and Best Picture. By the laws of logic any movie with Allison Williams shouldn’t be nominated for anything ever or seen by anybody ever or even get made in the first place. so that alone means that something’s fishy. I saw Get Out in the theater and, as a Chicagoan who has friends with horrible ideas as to what constitutes as fun, actually attended the recording of NPR’s Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me during which Jordan Peele called in and talked about Get Out. I took a bunch of drugs beforehand so don’t cry for me too much. But do a little. Because it was horrible.     My point is that I’m in deep enough to say that while Get Out was a fun watch, it was more a mid-tier Black Mirror concept (white people fetishizing black people to the extreme of inhabiting their bodies through surgery) then a movie intended to live on in Oscars infamy, and I can’t help but think even Peele himself feels this way deep down. Get Out was released in February – one of the classic dump months for flicks – and again, he cast Williams. Allison Williams. I mean, come the hell on. It’d be more compelling if someone just dragged Brunette Barbie around set Robot Chicken-style. Academy members are wiping the sweat from their brows knowing that they were able to eke in a movie about black issues, instead of creating an actual Oscar contender. Get Out’s headline-grabbing surprise nominations assuage #OscarsSoWhite guilt, but at the end of the day it’s a red herring, allowing people to celebrate walking ultra white paint chip Greta Gerwig while feeling that they hit inclusivity out of the damn park. If it wasn’t for the release of Get Out, the Oscars would have worked their way all the way down to The Carmichael Show if they had to. I wish I worked in Hollywood. Preaching about environmentalism while chartering private jets? Condemning an alleged sexual assailant post reaping the benefits of working with one? Celebrating racial inclusivity on a technicality rather than fostering the creation of actual Oscar-worthy inclusive movies? The morality Fast Pass reserved for the rich and famous. Here are the nominated movies that I hope you didn’t have to suffer through: Best Picture Call Me By Your Name Darkest Hour Dunkirk Get Out Lady Bird Phantom Thread The Post The Shape Of Water Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri   Best Actress Sally Hawkins, The Shape of Water Frances McDormand, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri Margot Robbie, I, Tonya Saoirse Ronan, Lady Bird Meryl Streep, The Post   Best Actor Timothée Chalamet, Call Me By Your Name Daniel Day-Lewis, Phantom Thread Daniel Kaluuya, Get Out Gary Oldman, Darkest Hour Denzel Washington, Roman J.

Brett Ratner allegedly masturbated in a car as he sat next to a horrified model after flying her to Los Angeles for a shoot in 2008. Related: Ellen Page Brings Forward Serious Accusations Against Brett Ratner The model, who did not want to be named publicly in a new and damning report that came out today, said that the Rush Hour director had been sitting next to her in a chauffeur-driven car along with two assistants when Ratner allegedly just whipped it out and started masturbating in front of her. What the FUCK?! The model said of the incident: "I put my hands over my eyes and said, ‘Stop. That's disgusting.' But he wouldn't stop. As he is finishing, his assistant in the front seat hands him tissues. I was really uncomfortable. I never worked with him again, and I never got into a car with him again." Ugh!!!!! The model never went to the cops, assuming there was no crime there and figuring things would be best left alone -- but she made it a point never to ever work with Ratner again, in light of what happened.

It was initially reported that the 20-year-old actor worked a 16-hour day before getting into the car for a 45 minute drive to his hotel. The accident spurred calls from cast and crew to change conditions on set and allow for them to receive car services when working late hours. WBTV says that there is already a policy in place for cast and crew to be provided with “a taxi, a driver or a hotel room upon request.” They also noted that KJ worked 14.2 hours following a 2.5 hour workday the day before. “The safety of the cast and crew on all of our productions is of paramount importance to the Studio. Productions adhere to the Screen Actors Guild–mandated turnaround time of 12 hours from wrap time to next day call time for cast members,” WBTV said in the statement. “In accordance with industry standard policy, if any cast or crew member feels tired or unsafe at any time after working, the Studio will provide a taxi, a driver or a hotel room upon request. This is communicated to all cast and crew, both in writing and verbally, at the beginning of production and is reiterated continuously throughout the duration of production.” Click inside to read the rest of WBTV’s statement regarding KJ Apa… “First and foremost, we are extremely grateful that KJ Apa was uninjured during his recent accident. Secondarily, we want to specifically address the characterization that conditions on the set of Riverdale are of concern,” the statement continued. “We have a large cast of series regulars, and our actors do not work every day. On the day of the accident, KJ worked 14.2 hours. The previous day he worked 2.5 hours, and the day before that he worked 7.7 hours. KJ has repeatedly been informed about making production aware if he is tired or feels unsafe, and if so, either a ride or hotel room will be provided for him. The accident occurred last Thursday. Additionally, it is untrue that KJ was taken to the hospital. He was treated by first responders on the scene and released by them. We also sent a doctor to his home later that same day for a follow-up to confirm his well-being.”.....»»

No Joke — Uber Announces Plans To Launch Flying Cars By 2020!!

Uber is ready to take to the sky! According to Wired, the ride sharing app is eager to launch UberAIR as a way for consumers to combat exhaustive traffic.

According to Wired, the ride sharing app is eager to launch UberAIR as a way for consumers to combat exhaustive traffic. The company went public with its "flying cars" idea a little over a year ago and, since then, they've become more dedicated to the idea. Related: Celebs React To The New 280 Twitter Characters! So what is UberAIR and what does it entail?? In short, customers would be picked up on the roof of a tall building and would then step into a helicopter hybrid to be whisked away over the standstill of cars. Or, at least, that's the dream. However, this dream may come into fruition sooner than later as Uber has made deals to run some kind of "air" service in both Dallas and Dubai. Not to mention, the company also announced this week that they want to launch flying cars in Los Angeles by 2020. Oh, and they'd like a real commercial service to be up an running a handful years after the '20 launch. Whoa. Be sure to ch-ch-check out the company's announcement video for yourself (below). On the revolutionary idea, Uber chief product officer Jeff Holden, noted in a statement: "UberAIR will be performing far more flights over cities on a daily basis than has ever been done before... Doing this safely and efficiently is going to require a foundational change in airspace management technologies." Of course, there are plenty of kinks to work out as the company didn't specify how they'd prescreen customers, navigate the city's already busy airspace, etc. Although, it's said Uber is currently collaborating with NASA to develop a Unmanned Traffic System for Unmanned Aerial Systems. So, it seems, air taxis may REALLY be coming to El Lay or a city near you sometime soon. Color us impressed!.....»»
