On Friday, Pearl Moen (above) was sentenced to 15 years in prison after pleading guilty to attacking a young woman she lived a few blocks away from, then — most disturbingly — writing about the thrill of murder in her diary.

According to the Travis County district attorney's office, the 19-year-old Texas teen never posted bail and never left the Travis County Jail since she was arrested on February 28, 2015.

The victim, who survived the November 14 2014 attack in Hyde Park, told the American-Statesman that her right lung collapsed and she lost a dangerous amount of blood.

She and a friend were relaxing outside on a blanket the morning of the attack. When the friend went back to his apartment, the victim took a moment to relax and close her eyes — when Moen, then 17, allegedly attacked her with a knife, smiling as she stabbed the park goer 21 times.

The DA's office said that the Moen had "a history of drug use and psychological issues" but "no criminal record."

The creepiest part of this horrible story is what detectives believe to be Moen's diary entry after the stabbing, which says:

You Win This Round, Kardashians — Blac Chyna Seems To Be Giving Up On Being One Of Them

She's still Blac Chyna!

Is it possible Blac Chyna and the Kardashians are done with their trademark drama??

It was previously reported Blac Chyna filed to trademark Angela Renée Kardashian only for Kim Kardashian West, Khloé Kardashian, and Kourtney Kardashian's teams to try to block it via their own legal documents.

But then it seemed like all was well as it was also said the whole thing was just a misunderstanding between Chyna and fiancé Rob Kardashian's sisters.

Sure.

Now DailyMail.com has learned the 28-year-old never filed an answer to the Patent and Trademark Office in response to the famous clan! According to their report, she had until January 20 to respond, but since she didn't it's likely a judgement will be entered favoring the Kardashians.

It's interesting because it seemed Kris Jenner and co. were calling off their lawyers… so was that not the case??

Or did Chyna actually just give up the fight?

| Filed under: Legal MattersAlanis MorissetteBusted!Business BlitzControversy

Alanis Morissette

With business managers like these, who needs enemies?!

We told you last year that Alanis Morissette's was SCREWED out of millions of dollars when she discovered her former business manager Jonathan Schwartz stole close to $5 million from her estate — and now he's admitting to the whole thing!

On Wednesday, the sketchy businessman submitted court papers saying he embezzled over $6.5 million from his clients — including $4.8 million just from the Ironic singer. Wowza!

You may remember Jonathan initially claimed he used the dough to finance a pot farm business at Ms. Morissette's request — but the creative's reps vehemently deny this wild assertion.

Under Schwartz's plea agreement, he will probably only face four to six of the maximum penalty of 23 years in federal prison once he pleads guilty.

He's due in U.S. District Court on February 1.
