It’s the mid week hump people and there are some juicy stories to tell. Jared Fogle admits to child pornography, Mike Epps confuses Twitter with Ashley Madison and Jason Derulo is still talking to anywho who’ll listen about his Southwest Airlines experience. We reported on this days ago, but he’s keeping it buzzing in the media.
Jared Fogle to Plead Guilty to Child Porn Charges
This right here… there are no words. How the hell… why the hell Jared Fogle? Why the hell?
About a month ago, former Subway spokesperson Jared Fogle’s home and foundation was raided amid allegations that he was involved in some kind of child porn situation. Well, he is now expected to plead guilty to possession of child porn charges.
There are two counts against him; one for distributing and receiving child porn and a second for traveling across state lines to pay for sex with two minors. The charges together are punishable by a sum of up to 50 years in prison. He is set to accept a plea deal in which his lawyers agree to ask for no less than five years.
The details of this ordeal are truly sickening. Documents alleged that the leader of his charitable foundation, Russel Taylor, RECORDED and DISTRIBUTED child porn and shared it with Fogle. The ex-Subway spokesperson “knew that the minors depicted in these images or videos were under the age of 18 years, including minors as young as approximately 13-14 years.” The documents even detail that he approved of what was going on and that he paid for sex with a 17 year old in November of 2012 at the Plaza Hotel in NYC (as well as another time at a Ritz-Carlton with a different 17 year old).
As a result of all of this, his wife, Katie Fogle, is filing for divorce.
“I am in the process of seeking a dissolution of the marriage. My focus is exclusively on the well-being of my children. Neither I nor my family will have any further comment on the matter.”
According to his petition to plead guilty—which the prosecution accepted Wednesday—Fogle faces between 60 to 240 months in prison for possessing and sharing the child porn, and up to 360 months for having sex with the girls. But the sentence is likely to be a good bit longer than the minimum.
“It isn’t going to be five years,” US Attorney Josh Minkler told reporters, later adding, in response to a question about whether Fogle might flee, “I don’t think he’s going anywhere… I don’t think Jared can flee very far without being recognized.”
This is truly a sad situation.
Here’s the full list of crimes that Jared Fogle is being charged with.
Men of today think they are so slick. Don’t they know women check up on them, even when they don’t see us doing so? It seems like Mike Epps has learned that the hard way.
Apparently, he was caught, by his wife Mechelle Epps, flirting with a woman over the weekend on Twitter. Now the way it went down, in some people’s eye’s, may not constitute “cheating” but it does beg the question, why did he tell this woman he was openly conversing with on the social media platform to “DM me?”
His wife got involved in their “conversation” posting an eyeball emoji and tagging her husband and the woman. And speaking of the woman, she is obviously way too into herself, telling the comedian the reason she got off of Instagram when he asked if “are you on IG” is because she “Wasn’t getting the likes I deserve.” Sometimes, there are just no words to describe the entitlement people have.
As of today, Mike has blocked the woman and issued an apology, blaming the situation on his nephew whom he says uses his Twitter account to DM girls. That is so laughable because you are a pretty big star Mike Epps, why would you let your relatives use your social media?
It still seems suspicious if you ask me, but if it is the case, it’s in his best interests to limit who has access to his shit.
Singer Jason Derulo was kicked off a Southwest Flight over the weekend, and he is still running to the media talking about it three days later! He obviously is upset about the altercation that got him and his crew booted from the flight, but he is even more upset at the fact that people in the media (and social media I’m sure) are saying his arrogance and cockiness lead to the situation.
“If that’s not the humblest shit in the world to fly Southwest, I don’t know what is…It’s a bullshit ass airline. How you going to call me arrogant and I’m flying Southwest in the same sentence? It’s an oxymoron. ”
Granted he does have a point. I mean come on, why are you even flying Southwest Jason? According to his account of what happened, he says that it all started when they refused to provide him with an escort through security to the gate in Reno, NV, which is a norm for celebrities to prevent a scene.
He says he tried to explain this to the desk agent but they kept dismissing him. They had some words, which lead to a confrontation between his people and the airline folks. According to a statement issued by Southwest, they didn’t let them board because Derulo and his people didn’t follow boarding procedures.
From what I can gather, it seems like the airline was being petty. I mean he is a celebrity so I don’t quite understand why they didn’t provide him the security. With that, the thing that has people saying that Jason is arrogant is probably his statement,
“I’m going to buy a jet so I don’t have all these problems.”
Those cost a pretty hefty penny and I guess people feel like if you can afford to get one, the question remains, why were you flying Southwest in the first place Jason?
