Peru's Ex-President Attempts Suicide Before Arrest

Peru's Ex-President Attempts Suicide Before Arrest




Peru's former President Alan García has shot himself as police came to arrest him. Casimiro Ulloa hospital in the capital, Lima, said he was in surgery where he was being treated for "a bullet wound to his head".

Mr García is accused of taking bribes from Brazilian construction company Odebrecht - claims he has repeatedly denied.

Officers had been sent to arrest him in connection with the allegations.

Interior Minister Carlos Morán told reporters that when police arrived, Mr Garcia asked to make a phone call and went into a room and closed the door.

Minutes later, a shot rang out, Mr Morán said.

Police forced the door open and found Mr Garcia sitting on a chair with a bullet wound to his head.

Health minister Zulema Tomás said Mr García's condition was "very serious and critical", and that he had to be resuscitated after suffering three cardiac arrests.

"Let's pray to God to give him strength," the former president's lawyer Erasmo Reyna reportedly told journalists at the hospital.

Mr García served as president from 1985 to 1990 and again from 2006 to 2011.

R Kelly Could Be Jailed Over Child Support Again

R Kelly Could Be Jailed Over Child Support Again



R Kelly could soon be thrown back into jail after reportedly failing to pay child support to his ex-wife.

The R&B singer, who is facing a string of sexual assault charges, which he denies, was jailed in March after failing to cough up his monthly payments to ex Andrea Kelly.

She shares three children with her ex, Joann, 21, Jay, 19, and Robert Jr, 17. At the time, it was said that he had racked up a delinquency of $161,633.

Now, TMZ reports that he's missed his last two months of child support payments. He is required to pay $20,833 a month to his ex.

After being jailed in March, not long after he was arrested on sexual abuse charges, Kelly was released after he cleared his debt.

His missed payments were actually covered by someone else.

After getting out, Kelly went to court and asked a judge to lower his $20k a month payments, claiming he could no longer afford them.

The judge agreed to hear Kelly's arguments, but that won't happen until May 8.

French Priest Known For Helping In Attacks Is An Hero Again For Saving Holy Relic In Notre Dame Fire

French Priest Known For Helping In Attacks Is An Hero Again For Saving Holy Relic In Notre Dame Fire





A French priest who helped the wounded in the Bataclan terror attack on Paris and who survived an ambush in Afghanistan also emerged as a hero of the Notre Dame fire today.

Jean-Marc Fournier, chaplain of the Paris Fire Brigade, rushed straight for the relics housed in the cathedral to rescue the Blessed Sacrament and the Crown of Thorns relics from the blazing building on Monday night.

It was feared that both religious artefacts would be lost as flames engulfed the medieval building, but Father Fournier made sure they were taken to safety.

Four years ago he also comforted the wounded after the worst terrorist attack on Paris this century when 89 people were massacred at the Eagles of Death Metal concert in 2015.

During his time as an army chaplain, Father Fournier, survived an ambush in which 10 soldiers were killed.


Rappers Demand Fox News Presenter Is Fired For Mocking Nipsey Hussle

Rappers Demand Fox News Presenter Is Fired For Mocking Nipsey Hussle

Rappers Demand Fox News Presenter Is Fired For Mocking Nipsey Hussle




Calls have mounted from rappers demanding Fox News fire host Laura Ingraham for her insensitive coverage of Nipsey Hussle’s funeral.

On Friday, just after Hussle’s funeral, Ingraham joked about a 2016 song by artist YG called “FDT,” or “Fuck Donald Trump,” in which Hussle was featured.

Ingraham misleadingly stated that Hussle had released the song, making no reference to YG before airing part of the music video in which Hussle is nowhere to be seen.

“That’s a very creative refrain, very catchy,” she remarked, asking if the line was “related to the lowest unemployment ever, basically, for African Americans.”

Ingraham and network contributor Raymond Arroyo then laughed over Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan calling Hussle “Nipsey Russell” in a eulogy, seemingly by mistake. Hussle’s name was a play on the late comedian Russell’s name.

R&B singer Tank was among the first to speak out on Instagram, pushing for the host’s removal.

“Disrespecting the deceased is not news,” he wrote. “It’s just disrespect!”

The Game joined in just hours later with a post of his own, claiming that if the network doesn’t take action, it “will lose millions of viewers one person at a time until it drastically effects your ratings, views etc.”

“We are NO LONGER laying quiet while you continuously disrespect our brother, culture African Americans as a whole,” he added. “I will use my platform & call on my peers to do the same.”

T.I. reposted The Game’s video shortly after, rebuking Ingraham’s segment as “disgusting.”

Their messages of opposition were also echoed by Snoop Dogg, who commented on The Game’s post with a supportive, “I’m in.”

An online petition for the firing has also circulated, garnering more than 17,000 signatures.

Fox News is yet to comment.


R. Kelly Has -$13 In His Bank Account After $150k Was Seized When His Ex-Landlord Sued

R. Kelly Has -$13 In His Bank Account After $150k Was Seized When His Ex-Landlord Sued




R. Kelly is reportedly broke after $150,000 was seized from multiple bank accounts after his former Chicago landlord filed a lawsuit accusing him of owning back rent.

The R&B singer has hit rock bottom and currently has -$13 in one of his bank accounts, according to court documents obtained by The Blast.

Wintrust Bank, where Kelly holds an account, informed his former landlord that Kelly's balance with them is in the negatives.

Though that bank account has been drained, Kelly is said to have two other bank accounts with Bank of America.

One of those accounts held $44,595.58 and the other had $110,056.64.

However, all of that money was seized by the landlord, who filed a lawsuit accusing Kelly of owing back rent.

Kelly has $625 left between the two Bank of America accounts, according to The Blast.  

The landlord was awarded $173,000 from the suit and subpoenas were sent to Sony Music, the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) and multiple banks. 

According to The Blast, Kelly is not owed any money by the ASCAP, which collects money for artists.

Meghan Markle Won't Be Able To Keep All The Gifts She's Sent For Royal Baby

Meghan Markle Won't Be Able To Keep All The Gifts She's Sent For Royal Baby



When you have a baby, you are often showered with presents from friends and family members to mark the occassion.

From stuffed animals to tiny pieces of clothing, you can expect to receive a whole range of things.

This will be the case for Meghan Markle, 37, and Prince Harry, 34, very soon, after their first child is born.

However unlike most new parents, they won't be able to enjoy and keep all of the things they have been given for the baby - instead they will have to pack many of the gifts up and return them.

This is because there are many royal rules they have to follow around gifts, including ones given to them to celebrate birthdays, Christmas, weddings and anniversaries.

The Royal Family's guidelines state: "The fundamental principle governing the acceptance of gifts by Members of The Royal Family is that no gifts, including hospitality or services, should be accepted which would, or might appear to, place the Member of The Royal Family under any obligation to the donor.

"In this regard, before accepting any gift, careful consideration should always be given, wherever practicable, to the donor, the reason for and occasion of the gift and the nature of the gift itself. Equally, before declining the offer of a gift, careful consideration should be given to any offence that might be caused by such an action."

LA Council To Rename Crenshaw & Slauson Intersection "Nipsey Hussle Square"

LA Council To Rename Crenshaw & Slauson Intersection "Nipsey Hussle Square"

LA Council To Rename Crenshaw & Slauson Intersection "Nipsey Hussle Square"




The Los Angeles City Council is expected to change the name of a South L.A. intersection on Friday to honor late rapper Nipsey Hussle. Councilman Marqueece Harris-Dawson said he will officially submit a motion on Friday to rename the intersection of Crenshaw Boulevard and Slauson Avenue to "Nipsey Hussle Square."

Nipsey Hussle, whose real name is Ermias Asghedom, had a song called "Crenshaw and Slauson (True Story)". A nearly 12-minute documentary-style music video for the song features real people from the Crenshaw neighborhood, where Nipsey Hussle grew up. His store, Marathon Clothing, is also located at this intersection.

The Grammy-nominated rapper was shot, along with two other people, while standing outside of his store.

Fans advocated for the intersection's name change and started a Change.org petition to urge the city council to submit the motion. "Please call or email Councilman Harris-Dawson to let him know you support this effort," wrote the petition's creator, Najee Ali, who said he personally knew Nipsey Hussle. "He wasn't just a rapper. He was a community icon," Ali said.

The petition has nearly reached its goal of 500,000 signatures, and clearly got the councilman's attention.

After Harris-Dawson tweeted his plans to propose the name change, L.A. City Council President Herb Wesson tweeted his approval. "[Nipsy Hussle] created a legacy that will last long after his life on earth. Thanks to the leadership of [Harris-Dawson], Angelenos will remember the impact he made on so many whenever they drive through the intersection of Crenshaw and Slauson," Wesson wrote.

Nipsey Hussle was a local activist who impacted the community and had plans to work with the police department to discuss ways of fighting gang violence. After his death on March 31, the Crenshaw community created memorials for the 33-year-old father across the ci

A Delta Woman identified has Amanda has taking to the streets in Delta State to beg. A Lady who knows her story, shares it thus;

''This morning at Summit junction by Rainoil Petrol Station In Asaba, Delta State, this woman with triplets (newly born) is seen begging for survival and food to feed these triplets. It is pathetic to hear her story. It is not her fault to go into a relationship which she prayed to lead to marriage but alas the man decided to abscond on hearing of the pregnancy and expecting triplets.

Amanda (the lady's name) could have decided to abort these babies but God had other plans and so she put to bed three children (2 boys and a girl).

Amanda could not afford to feed these Children and had resorted to begging on the roadside. These triplets are not more than three months old so one will cry and feel pained at the situation.

My dear friends, my joy would be to see someone come to her aid. These triplets needs better care, needs shelter and who knows they may become the Best triplets to ever emerge from Nigeria.

Amanda is like one of us with good future. Will she suffer setback because of these triplets given to her by God? Please friends and family, reach out to Amanda, let save these kids. Amanda has a Nokia torchlight phone and can be reached on 0810 699 7306.

Please let's spread this post to help save the lives of these triplets.
God bless you all''

Diddy Apologized To My Man After His Comment On My Snap- JLO

Diddy Apologized To My Man After His Comment On My Snap- JLO




She was caught in a rather awkward situation a few months ago, after her ex-boyfriend Diddy complimented a sexy snap she posted onto Instagram.

But now Jennifer Lopez has revealed Diddy apologized to her fiance Alex Rodriguez shortly after commenting on the racy snap.

'Just so you guys know, he wrote Alex after that. He was like "I didn't mean anything by it. I have nothing but respect for you guys. I'm so happy for you guys,"' the singer, 49, said during a Thursday appearance on The Breakfast Club.

The hilarious drama all started back in January, after JLo flaunted her toned abs on Instagram.

Diddy left a flattering comment onto the photo, writing 'OMG' along with a heart eyes emoticon.

Meanwhile, Alex made sure to mark his territory with his own complimentary message.

'Lucky me,' he commented, along with a heart, baseball, and check emoticon.

Jennifer said she and Diddy were both just 'kids' when they dated back in 1999 to 2001.  

'We were boyfriend and girlfriend when we were little,' she explained. 'That was so long ago. It was a different type of relationship... we were kids.'

Now, Jennifer is engaged to Alex after the former baseball pro proposed during their romantic getaway to the Bahamas last month.


Harry & Meghan Will Not Announce The Birth Of Their Baby Until Much Later On - Kensington Palace

Harry & Meghan Will Not Announce The Birth Of Their Baby Until Much Later On - Kensington Palace




The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will only announce the birth of their baby once they have 'had an opportunity to celebrate privately as a new family', Kensington Palace revealed today.

Meghan is expected to have a midwife-led home birth at Frogmore Cottage in Windsor, the new home she shares with Prince Harry on the Berkshire estate.

She wants to follow in the footsteps of the Queen, who was born at the Mayfair home of her grandparents and gave birth to all four of her children at either Buckingham Palace or Clarence House.

A Kensington Palace spokesman said: 'The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very grateful for the goodwill they have received from people throughout the United Kingdom and around the world as they prepare to welcome their baby.

'Their Royal Highnesses have taken a personal decision to keep the plans around the arrival of their baby private.

'The Duke and Duchess look forward to sharing the exciting news with everyone once they have had an opportunity to celebrate privately as a new family.'

Sources stressed earlier this week that Harry and Meghan, who are expecting their first child within weeks, have not ruled out a hospital delivery because a woman having a baby over the age of 35 is at an increased risk of premature birth or the need for an epidural or caesarean.

But a friend in America said the duchess – who still practices yoga daily and has 'sailed' through her pregnancy – is in extremely good health and sees no reason why she could not enjoy a safe delivery in the privacy of the cottage.


Julian Assange Arrest: Pamela Anderson Blasts US, UK & Ecuador

Julian Assange Arrest: Pamela Anderson Blasts US, UK & Ecuador




Former "Baywatch" star Pamela Anderson lashed out at the United Kingdom, Ecuador, and President Trump after WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was arrested Thursday at the Ecuadorian embassy in London where he has lived in asylum for nearly seven years.

"I am in shock.. I couldn’t hear clearly what he said? He looks very bad. How could you Equador ? (Because he exposed you). How could you UK. ? Of course - you are America’s bitch and you need a diversion from your idiotic Brexit bullshit," the 51-year-old Canadian-American actress said in a tweet.

"And the USA ? This toxic coward of a President," she said in another. "He needs to rally his base? - You are selfish and cruel. You have taken the entire world backwards. You are devils and liars and thieves. And you will ROTT."

 "And WE WILL RISE," Anderson added. She also shared a link to a WikiLeaks defense fund.

Assange, 47, took refuge in the embassy in 2012 to avoid extradition to Sweden, where he was wanted for questioning in a sexual assault investigation. That case has since been dropped but WikiLeaks feared Assange could be extradited to the U.S.

The WikiLeaks founder, already notorious for leaking of U.S. diplomatic cables in 2010, subsequently played a key role in Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential elections by released emails stolen from Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta, and other Democratic officials. The U.S. intelligence community concluded in a 2017 assessment that WikiLeaks was used by Russia intelligence to release information as part of an effort to elect Trump. WikiLeaks denies this assertion.
