Johnnie Cochran is dead. Marcia Clark writes murder mysteries. Judge Lance Ito is retired. Kato Kaelin tweets a lot. And F. Lee Bailey, the famed criminal defense attorney, is flat broke. On Thursday, O.J. Simpson - the NFL icon who brought them together more than two decades ago - was granted parole from his prison sentence for a Nevada robbery conviction, asserting during a highly anticipated hearing that “I’m not a guy who has lived a criminal life.” But of all the characters who played a role in Simpson’s unforgettable acquittal for the murder of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, no one’s life has changed as dramatically as Bailey’s. By changed, we mean cratered. Bailey joined Simpson’s
It seems like it was just yesterday that every gossip blog headline and Keeping Up With the Kardashians episode revolved around Kylie Jenner and Tyga's relationship. But in a new interview, Tyga notes they have been broken up for seven months at this point and he's not looking to get back together anytime soon. Speaking with Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club, Tyga said he and Kylie broke up because, like most exes, they were in different places in life and had different priorities. "I have love for her but I'm not in love no more," he said. "When you're with anybody that first year, it's magic and then after that, you start realizing a bunch of shit." A lot of their differences had to do with
Julianne Hough and her new husband have been sharing honeymoon photos this week, and her latest pic leaves little to the imagination. But hey, the birthday girl can celebrate however she wants, right? The dancer and one-time country singer’s butt has her followers chattering on Thursday (July 20), Hough’s 29th birthday. She’s also topless, but the photo was taken on a private beach, and we can only assume that’s her husband’s arm so … own it, girl! You only honeymoon once. Hough married hockey player Brooks Laich on July 8, and since then the pair have been at Fregate Island, a small private island that Google says is in the Indian Ocean. That’s pretty far from home, meaning no paparazzi to worry
If O.J. Simpson gets out of prison, he'll have far more financial resources awaiting him than most ex-convicts. Simpson goes before a parole hearing Thursday that could lead to his release from prison this fall. Beyond any money he can make from selling autographs or other memorabilia, Simpson, who is 70, will probably have significant retirement income. The NFL won't say how much he'll get from his NFL pension, and it's hard to estimate without knowing some key details, such as when he decided to start collecting benefits. But according to the NFL benefits formula, he could receive as much as $100,680 a year if he waited until age 65 to start drawing his pension. Ex-players have the option of
Police in late June found widespread drug-use and men engaged in homosexual activity during the bust at the home owned by the Vatican's Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, according to Il Fatto Quotidiano, an Italian newspaper that first reported the incident. Among its duties, the congregation guides the Church's response to clerical sexual abuse cases. Authorities reportedly arrested the secretary of Cardinal Francesco Coccopalmerio, who was an occupant of the apartment, but official charges in connection with the incident have not been reported. Coccopalmerio, who serves as president of the Vatican's Pontifical Council for Legislative Texts and leads interpretations of the laws of
The lack of votes in the Senate for the Republican health care bill is an opportunity for a "clean repeal" of Obamacare and thus a "victory" for conservatives, Sen. Rand Paul told "Good Morning America" today. What I'm calling the victory is that we will get to vote on a clean repeal," the Kentucky Republican said in an interview with ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos. My wife and I spend hours on the phone trying to get the insurance companies to pay for anything.
The University of Central Florida student whose viral “graded” breakup letter to his ex-girlfriend got him suspended for two semesters was cleared of all charges Thursday. Nick Lutz, 21, posted pictures of his ex-girlfriend’s apology letter - complete with grammar and content editing and a D- final grade - on Twitter, where it quickly earned 121,000 retweets.
