Walter Palmer became the world's most despised dentist after he paid to kill Africa's beloved lion Cecil earlier this month.

Now, the professional hunter who accompanied the dentist on the July 1 hunt is speaking out, and he says that "the hunt went wrong from the beginning!"

On Wednesday, Theo Bronkhorst gave a detailed account of the hunt to officials. The Bulawayo native is forbidden from continuing his hunting business which he's run since 1992, and is devastated by the outrage directed at him for Cecil's death.

Though, Bronkhorst's account of the hunt makes it sound like there was a lot of confusion surrounding Dr. Palmer's trip. He explained:

"When Dr Palmer arrived in Bulawayo, his luggage was missing and I was dashing around looking for it. So we were late getting ready to go. And we were never meant to hunt on the land where this lion was shot. At the last minute I had to divert from a concession [hunting area] about eight miles away."

Bronkhorst explained that, on the night of July 1, he was accompanied by

EXCLUSIVE! Vanderpump Rules Stars React To Jax's Shoplifting Arrest!

| Filed under: TV NewsExclusives!Legal MattersReality TVLisa Vanderpump

Jax Taylor and Lisa Vanderpump

Shoplifting is no joke, but one of Jax Taylor's castmates laughed after discovering he had been arrested for allegedly stealing a pair of sunglasses!

The Vanderpump Rules cast was in Hawaii a couple weeks ago when the hunky SUR bartender was caught on tape walking out of a boutique with a pair of shades he didn't pay for. He was stopped by police and jailed.

We caught up with Jax at the launch of costar Katie Maloney's Pucker & Pout blog Thursday night. While he didn't talk about the incident, his costars revealed to us EXCLUSIVELY how they reacted when they learned of his arrest.

Lisa Vanderpump — who is an executive producer on the reality TV show AND Jax's boss at SUR — was obviously unhappy. She admitted that he's had been disciplined:

"Absolutely. We're dealing with it. I am happy to say I see some type of remorse [from Jax]. People make mistakes and he definitely made a big one."

Peter Madrigal — a manager at SUR — came to his friend's defense:

"I know he's innocent because he wanted to buy them. But he clearly forgot. He's innocent."

Scheana Shay actually found the incident humorous:

Courtney Love & Frances Bean Cobain Desperately Want Kurt Cobain's Suicide Photos To Remain Sealed From The Public

We can't imagine the insane amount of stress Courtney Love and Frances Bean Cobain are under right now!

In recent weeks, Courtney and Frances have pleaded with a judge to not releases photos of Kurt Cobain's 1994 suicide to the public, a move they claim would cause them "indescribable pain".

Since Cobain's suicide, only two photos have been released from the scene — a picture of a box containing drug paraphernalia and another of the singer's cash, cigarette pack, and wallet containing his identification.

The only reason why a judge is considering unsealing the devastating photos is due to a lawsuit from Richard Lee, who runs a Seattle public access TV show. Richard believes that the release of the images will prove that Kurt was murdered, a popular conspiracy theory held by many Nirvana fans.

Frances disagrees with Lee's assessment, saying:

"I have had to cope with many personal issues because of my father's death. Coping with even the possibility that those photographs could be made public is very difficult. Further sensationalizing it through the release of the these pictures would cause us indescribable pain."

Aw, we really feel for the 22-year-old! Considering the recent documentary about her dad, Kurt Cobain: A Montage of Heck, was difficult for the artist, we bet this new development is just as trying.

So, do YOU think the photos should be released?

OITNB's Taryn Manning Is Suing A Filmmaker For Dropping Her From A Movie She Was Supposed To Star In! Deets Here!

It looks like Taryn Manning is lawyering up!

The Orange is the New Black star is about to endure a legal battle with a filmmaker who dropped her from a movie that has been in development for about eight years!

According to reports, the 36-year-old has filed a lawsuit against Cline Mayo, who has been trying to get her movie Droppers made since 2007!

[ Related: OITNB's Ruby Rose Is Twinning AGAIN With Justin Bieber! ]

Manning was supposed to star in the film, and has worked to fund the trailer and create the "look, feel and scenario" of the project!

Despite all that, the actress has been fired and cut from the film, so we get why litigious action was called for. Though, Manning's lawsuit is actually preemptive, as she claims Mayo is about to sue her as well!

Yikes!

We're not sure what exactly went down between the two, but we have a feeling this legal battle isn't gonna be pretty!

Katy Perry Might Not Be Able To Buy That Convent Right Now — But She Could Rent It! Deets HERE!

| Filed under: Legal MattersKaty PerryFor Reals EstateGIFsGotta Have Faith

Can Katy Perry still kind of keep the convent?

An LA judge may have made a ruling in the Katy Perry convent drama, but the fight is far from over!

On Thursday, Judge James C. Chalfant declared that the nuns of the Immaculate Heart of Mary made an invalid sale when they allowed developer Dana Hollister to purchase a Los Feliz convent.

The singer had also been vying for the holy building, and was the archbishop's preferred buyer. However, a group of nuns went ahead and sold the property to Dana, who offered $15.5 million, as opposed to KP's offer of $14.5 million.

Since Miz Hollister had already registered a deed for the convent, the archbishop had to press pause on the pop princess' purchase.

Now, the whole ordeal is involved in so much litigation that the judge says it could take months, or even years, to finally settle the case. He told the archbishop's lawyers:

"You're not selling to Katy Perry anytime soon."

However, the 30-year-old's lawyers pressed to kick Dana out of the building so Katy can rent it while everything is being sorted out.

But, the judge decided to present an option that would allow both Dana AND Miz Perry to duke it out to determine who would rent the property for the time being, saying:

"We'll have a battle of potential lessees."

Even though he said the sale was invalid, Mr. Chalfant has set up an additional hearing for September 15 to determine whether or not Dana will be able to keep the convent.

What do U think of all this Holy drama, Perezcious readers?
