Miley Cyrus did such a bad job at a recent Make a wish Moment for a 7 year old cancer patient. She did such a bad job, they are now asking Justin Bieber to come to  the rescue of a 7-year-old cancer patient whose Make-A-Wish wish was ruined by Miley Cyrus..

According to RadarOnline.com, the twerking queen accidentally damaged Miley Hodge’s Make-A-Wish wish when she paid more attention to a new studio than the sick child during their visit.

“The family went to Los Angeles and were put off for nearly a week before they met [Cyrus]. They finally met at the recording studio and from what I understand, Cyrus was more interested in what she was doing in the studio than paying attention to the little girl,” a family friend told the site. When approached for comment, Miley’s dad Bert insisted the family was “grateful for the chance to meet Cyrus in person.”

Even though the little girl met the singer, her family wants to give their daughter to get what she’s wanted all along and that’s the opportunity to meet Bieber. Miley suffers from Stage IV Osteosarcoma, an aggressive form of bone cancer. Doctors told her family last December that she had just four-to-six months to live.

So far Beliebers are doing all they can on Twitter to get Bieber to meet the ailing girl. Tweeting #JustinMeetMiley and recently #Pray4Miley, her family, along with the organization Believe4Children, are hoping to get her wish granted. Celebrities like Diddy, Tara Reid, Kelly Osbourne and Bieber’s pal Milk Tyson have helped get Justin’s attention about meeting the girl too.

A Conyers man has been arrested after he allegedly choked his daughter’s kitten in retaliation for her striking him while he was arguing with her mother.

According to the victim, she and her husband, Timothy Lytle, began arguing when it turned to a physical altercation. At one point, as she approached the door, he threw her outside, which caused her to fall and injure her knees, the incident report states. Lytle also reportedly grabbed her and banged her head against the wall.

During the fight, the couple’s 8-year-old daughter got between them and she hit Lytle in the head with a cast on her arm, the Sheriff’s Office reported. According to the application for an arrest warrant, Lytle then hurt the family pet by “physically choking his daughter’s kitten by its neck in front of her after she hit him in the head with her cast trying to protect her mother.”

Witnesses at the scene indicated that both Lytle and the victim were involved in the physical altercation, but further investigation revealed that Lytle was the primary aggressor, said RCSO Investigator Michael Camp.

Lytle, 37, was arrested Sunday and charged with aggravated battery, cruelty to children, criminal trespass and cruelty to animals.

Rihanna receives justice for photo release of battered face

Rihanna-Smile-2013

Rolling Out Reports: Former Los Angeles police officer Rebecca Reyes took a picture of an evidence photo and the image ended up on celebrity website TMZ. Reyes continues to deny that she sent it to the site, according to the New York Daily News.

Superior Court Judge Luis A. Lavin issued a ruling agreeing with the decisions of a disciplinary panel and Police Chief Charlie Beck to fire Reyes in 2012. After reviewing the record, Lavin also concluded that evidence supports that Reyes, “participated in the release of the photography showing Ms. Fenty’s injuries to TMZ.”

The judge said he agreed that Reyes should no longer be a police officer.

“At a minimum, the public is entitled to protection from unprofessional employees whose conduct places people at risk of injury and the government at risk of incurring liability,” Lavin wrote in his ruling.

Reyes’ attorney, Ira Salzman, accepted the ruling without argument during a brief hearing Thursday.

Reyes had been an officer for 10 years before she was fired. In the hours after the Rihanna attack, Reyes was assigned to a team planning to arrest Brown but was pulled off the assignment. She saw an evidence photo of Rihanna’s injuries at her precinct and snapped a photo to share with others, including a former girlfriend who records show called TMZ.

The ex-girlfriend, also a Los Angeles police officer, told investigators she called the celebrity news site only to verify details of the attack that Reyes shared with her.

Salzman said Reyes’ ex-girlfriend, Blanca Lopez, remains on the force and that the person who leaked the photo “has never been found and never will be.”

Chris Brown Arrested After Failing to Stay in Rehab

Chris-Brown-court-date-2

According to reports, Chris Brown was picked up by the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department earlier today after he was kicked out of anger management rehab for the second time.  It’s unclear of what exactly he did but it did not involve violence or drugs this time around.  It has been said that he had an inappropriate relationship with a female employee at the facility earlier this month (which could be the reason for his breakup with his ex girl friend Karrueche) however, that is not why he was thrown out today.

From LA Times:

The singer was taken to the inmate reception center in downtown Los Angeles, where he was being booked into jail, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Capt. Mike Parker said.

He was arrested in Malibu without incident, Parker said. No details were immediately available about what led to his arrest.

Brown is on probation for his 2009 conviction in the assault.

In November, the singer was ordered to a 90-day live-in anger-management treatment program, where he would have to complete three eight-hour days of community service each week and undergo periodic drug tests.

Prosecutors in February asked a judge to take Brown into custody for failing to live up to a probation requirement that he “obey all laws.”

Kenyan Woman Reveals How She Infected 324 Men With HIV

HIV-girl

A scorned woman living in Kenya admitted that she deliberately infected over 300 men with the HIV virus as revenge for a man having unprotected sex with her and giving her the virus that leads to AIDS.

The female student at Kabarak University in Nakuru allegedly contacted Kenyan Scandals on Facebook with an ominous message in which she said, “I see you people exposing scandals. I also have a big one to tell; just don’t expose my name,” according to the Kenyan Daily Post.

The student told the Kenyan Daily Post that she’s only 19 and said that she was a virgin until she went clubbing with some seniors at the university. When she woke up, she realized that one of the guys had sex with her while she was inebriated from excessive drinking.

“Sep 22nd 2013 is a day I”ll never forget,” the girl wrote on Facebook. “We went clubbing in town and got drunk with some senior students then went back hostels for party round 2.”

She then explained that when she woke up, the morning after, she realized a boy called Javan had sex with her while she was passed out drunk.

“I only asked if he used a condom and he said ‘yes.’ However, when taking a bath I noticed sperm down there, I wanted to commit suicide, I feared getting pregnant and HIV.”

When she discovered she was HIV positive, the girl confronted Javan who insited he was clean.

“I was so depressed and took alcohol to die. I even bought poison, the pain was just unbearable. How was I gone face the world? I let my parents down, I gave up on the world and just wanted to end my life. My future had been ruined. Somehow, someone had to pay,” the girl said in her confessional, according to the newspaper.

The girl agreed to deliver her confessional to the newspaper only if they agreed to protect her identity.

After undergoing private therapy, the girl said something within her had snapped. “I accepted my fate and promised to make all men I come across suffer,” she said.

“I know I’m attractive and men both married and unmarried chase me left, right and centre. “I buried the good girl in me and became the bad girl, my goal was to infect as many as possible,” she explained.

The student claims that she keeps a list of the men that she infected and will release it when she’s on her death bed. “I know I have nothing left to do on earth but to wait for my death but before I do, (many) men will get it,” she said.

The girl has confessed to infecting 324 men, 156 of which are students at the Kabarak University where she studies. The rest are married men, lecturers, lawyers, celebrities and politicians. She said her goal is to infect 2000 men in the East African nation, the Kenyan Daily Post reported.

“Not a day passes without me having sex, mostly 4 people per day,” she continued in her confessional.

“Nothing will stop me from accomplishing my mission by continuing to sleep around, you never know but maybe you have slept with me or your husband, boyfriend, brother, father or any has slept with me.

“Your day is coming, you men destroyed my life and I will make you and your people pay for it,” the girl concluded.

The Kenyan Daily News promised to keep her name private. However, the newspaper did post photos of her from her Facebook page.

Wife leaves groom behind to go on Honeymoon

honeymoon

What would you do? 

A groom flying from Atlanta to Costa Rica forced his Delta Air Lines flight to divert to the Cayman Islands after he got into a “drunken argument” with his new wife en route to their honeymoon, Reuters reports.

The incident was bad enough that the flight’s crew opted to divert and make an emergency landing on Grand Cayman Island on Sunday.

The man was escorted from the flight and taken into custody by Cayman Islands police, but the bride remained on the aircraft and ultimately continued on with her trip to the Costa Rican capital of San Jose.

Royal Cayman Islands Chief Inspector Raymond Christian would not identify the couple’s identity to Reuters, but did acknowledge that the man who was taken into custody is a U.S. citizen.

Reuters says the man was being held Monday in the Cayman Islands on a charge of drunk and disorderly conduct. Christian indicated he could face additional charges.

Delta spokeswoman Lindsay McDuff confirmed the incident to Reuters, saying the crew operating Delta Flight 901 decided to divert to Grand Cayman because of a “disruptive customer.”

“The flight landed without incident and the customer was met by local authorities,” McDuff adds to Reuters.

Atlanta Middle School Principal Resigns Amid Drug Sex Scandal

AY-WITH-PRINCIPAL-GRIFFIN

A middle school principal in Atlanta, Ga., has resigned after allegations surfaced that he had sex with a teacher inside of the school building, dated a student’s parent, and never punished a custodian who sold marijuana to students.

The Atlanta Constitution Reports: An Atlanta middle school principal had an in-school affair with a teacher and failed to look into rumors that a custodian was selling marijuana to sixth graders, according to the results of an internal school system investigation.

Kelvin Griffin, who resigned as principal of Young Middle School in west Atlanta on Friday, said Thursday the allegations are false.

“I never had an inappropriate relationship with a teacher and I never condoned anybody selling drugs to my students in my school, and I was never aware that was taking place,” he said in a phone interview.

The Feb. 21 investigative report, obtained by The AtlantaJournal-Constitution through an open records request, concludes that Griffin violated policies prohibiting romantic relationships with subordinates, and that he didn’t maintain a drug-free school environment.

Young Middle School Scandal

The report also found that Griffin had an inappropriate romantic relationship with a parent who was volunteering at the school, and that he allowed a non-certified teacher to administer a teacher effectiveness survey to students.

Griffin and the teacher locked themselves in her office and didn’t answer the door when an assistant principal knocked, according to the report. Security video footage showed the teacher checking to make sure the hallway was clear before waving Griffin to come out.

The custodian was arrested last year for possession of marijuana on campus after a school resource officer saw paraphernalia in the custodian’s car, the report said.

Griffin said he’s talking with attorneys to find out what his options are.

“All of it is rumors and innuendos, all of it,” he said. “Disgruntled employees started rumors that got out of hand.”

The report said Griffin told investigators he acknowledged he should have looked into rumors that the custodian was selling drugs.

He jumped up and down on the stage after nervously thanking those who made it possible Sunday night.

McQueen dedicated the award to all former slaves and the thousands who are still enslaved around the world today. And he took the opportunity to thank his mom, who stood up and waved in the audience.

Everyone deserves not just to survive, but to live. This is the most important legacy of Solomon Northup. I dedicate this award to all the people who have endured slavery, and the 21 million people who still suffer slavery today.
