This is probably a good idea.

Even though a parole board recommendation came down to let Manson Family member Leslie Van Houten free after decades in prison, California Governor Jerry Brown has flatly denied the request, citing her unbelievable cruelty so many years ago.

Beyoncé Denies Stealing Filmmaker's Idea For Lemonade!

Proof is in the pudding lemonade!

As we reported in June, indie filmmaker Matthew Fulks filed a lawsuit against Beyoncé, claiming she totally ripped off his 2014 short film Palinoia to make her popular visual album Lemonade.

In his lawsuit, Fulks says several visual elements from Lemonade were stolen from his film, including images of "graffiti and persons with heads down," "red persons with eyes obscured," "parking garage," "black and white eyes," "the grass scene," and "side-lit ominous figures."

Well Queen B is calling BS!

According to legal docs, the Crazy In Love singer says both projects have completely different narratives.

While Lemonade tells the story of "an African-American woman who progresses through stages of suspicion, denial, anger and, ultimately, reconciliation in her relationship," Palinoia is about a "white man who is distressed in the wake of a failed relationship."

Lemonade is sweet, but it could also be VERY sour!

American Pie Singer Don McLean Pleads Guilty To Assaulting His Wife

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooLegal MattersBusted!Violence

Details here!

Don McLean is owning up to his atrocious actions.

On Thursday, the American Pie singer pleaded guilty to domestic violence against his now-estranged wife, Patrisha. The musician was arrested back in January, after he got violent during altercation at their home.

At the time, the singer's former flame described the scary attack, saying her husband grabbed her head and "squeezed as though my head were in a vice."

So awful.

But, after all that, the artist won't face any jail time. Instead, Don's lawyer explains he'll be slapped with a $3,000 fine as long as he behaves himself for a year.

In March, the Maine resident's wife filed for divorce after 30 years of marriage, citing "adultery, cruel and abusive treatment, and irreconcilable differences."

Do U think justice has been served, Perezcious readers?

Philando Castile & The Cop Who Shot Him Had Met Before!

| Filed under: Legal MattersR.I.P.Sad SadViolenceViral: News

Another wrinkle of the Philando Castile tragedy has been revealed…

As you'll remember from early this month, Castile was shot and killed by St. Anthony, Minnesota police officer Jeronimo Yanez during a traffic stop when the officer thought the 32-year-old cafeteria supervisor was going for a gun rather than his wallet.

And even as the national outrage generated from that unspeakable tragedy has begun to die to down, we just learned another notable detail about the shooting: Castile and Yanez had crossed paths before.

The city of St. Anthony released Castile's driving record late Thursday night, revealing that on November 23, 2011, Yanez was one of the officers listed as booking Castile into jail after he was pulled over in Falcon Heights, Minnesota, for driving with a broken tail light.

During the stop, Officer Yanez and his colleagues found Castile had been driving on a revoked license, and they arrested him.

It is unclear what role the officer played in that arrest, considering there were multiple officers listed on the report, but he clearly had dealt in some way with Castile less than five years before shooting him during a traffic stop this month.

Just a coincidence? A chilling footnote in an already tragic case? We may never know…

Wow, we're so disgusted by Young Buck's recent behavior.

On Thursday, the rapper was arrested for threatening to light his ex-girlfriend's house on FIRE. According to TMZ, the celeb even went as far to show up at her house so he could scare her further by kicking down her door.

Luckily for the ex, Buck didn't physically harm her or her property, and he ultimately left without incident.

Following the scary ordeal, police arrested the 35-year-old and held him in custody for few hours. The father was then released on $5K bond.

To make matters worse, Y.B. is already in trouble with the law for using fake urine to pass a drug test in addition to illegal firearm possession. Since the Nashville native is already on federal probation, this latest incident could cost him his freedom.

We'll keep you updated as this case progresses.
