Dr. Luke's Rep Says The Music Producer & Sony 'Are Not Cutting Ties' — Well Then, What IS Going On??

dr luke not ousted from sony

Dr. Luke (born Lukasz Gottwald) hasn't been fully ousted from Sony after all.

As we previously reported, the music company supposedly dropped the producer as CEO of Kemosabe Records — a record label Gottwald established with Sony back in 2011.

While many believed this demotion meant the industry vet would no longer have a working relationship with the media conglomerate, his rep has since defended that the 43-year-old is still professionally connected to Sony.

Dr. Luke's spokesperson told The Los Angeles Times:

"This is wrong, they are not cutting ties."

Well, well. We wonder what Kesha will have to say about this?? In case you forgot, the pop starlet has been trapped in a legal battle with the hitmaker since 2014 after she accused him of abuse.

We guess we'll just have to wait and see if Sony tries to clarify this incredibly confusing situation.

United Airlines & Dr. David Dao Have Reached An 'Amicable Settlement'!

| Filed under: Legal MattersTravelControversy

no title

It looks like things have finally leveled off between United Airlines and Dr. David Dao.

According to the 69-year-old's lawyers, Dao and the airline have reached an "amicable settlement" weeks after video of the medical professional being brutally dragged off an overbooked flight went viral.

The incident sparked worldwide outrage — and a procession of airline PR nightmares — leading the injured Dao to file a massive lawsuit against the company with the help of Chicago's top attorneys.

But United has seemingly circumvented the stormy skies of court and landed on a settlement with the wounded traveler — which was reached the same day the airline announced "positive changes to improve the customer experience."

The amount will remain confidential, but we have a feeling Dr. Dao cashed in on quite the first-class pay day. Hopefully, it makes up for being treated like an uncooperative snack cart.

Read the full statement from Dao's lawyers (below)!

Horrible 'DaddyOFive' Parents Apologize After Being Accused Of Abusing Their Children For YouTube Fame!

"We've made some terrible parenting decisions."

Um, YOU THINK?

The parents behind the disturbing DaddyOFive YouTube account are apologizing after facing a ton of (warranted) child abuse accusations online!

In case you're unfamiliar, the Maryland couple gained followers after making videos featuring what they call "pranks" on their five children — which usually have one son in particular on the receiving end of verbal and physical abuse from his siblings and parents. Mind you, this was all captured and shared in now-deleted videos!

The latest vid to cause outrage was entitled "Invisible Ink Prank (Epic Freakout)" and showed the parents each screaming profanities at their son for making a mess — something they did in order to set him up. The boy has an extremely hard-to-watch breakdown, during which he becomes red in the face and cries uncontrollably trying to defend himself.

Other videos show the son being wrestled, kicked in the groin, shoved into a bookcase resulting in a bleeding nose, abandoned in a mall, and even scared by a fake burglar in an incident where the father pulled out a real gun.

In much of the content, the child is constantly begging for the filmed pranks to stop and asking to be left alone.

What. The. Actual. Fuck???

Two elementary school teachers in Opelousas, Louisiana have been arrested for allegedly bullying a young girl and encouraging their students to fight one another.

According to KATC, Ann Marie Shelvin (above, left) has been accused of threatening to fail students who did not fight one of their classmates, and telling the bullied student to "go and kill yourself."

After the 44-year-old teacher was removed from Washington Elementary School, Tracy Gallow (above, right) — the replacement teacher — continued to intimidate the student for ousting Shelvin.

The mother of the 11-year-old victim first told deputies Shelvin was bullying her child back in February, and was told to file a complaint with the St. Landry School Board. She returned to officials earlier this month to say the bullying had continued.

Sheriff Bobby Guidroz says police found students were being forced by Shelvin to start an altercation with the victim. One student claimed if she did not fight with the 11-year-old, Shelvin would refuse to help her with her classwork — just like she refused to help the victim.

The Sheriff explained of the forced classroom fight club:

Caitlyn Jenner isn't spilling tea; she's throwing pots!

The reality star spoke to Andy Cohen at a Sirius XM Town Hall interview on Wednesday, and once again she was not afraid to say exactly how she felt about everything — including her certainty about the O.J. Simpson case. She explained:

"I knew he did it. There was three people at the crime scene. DNA evidence, three people at the crime scene. Pick a murderer. How hard is that?"

But Cait wasn't just giving her own opinion this time.

She also claims Kris Jenner knew he was guilty too! She said:

"Kris was on my side."

That's not the only thing sure to piss off the Kardashian fam.

The former Olympian went on to talk once again about her friendship with Robert Kardashian, who she now says was ALSO guilty — that is, he felt enormously guilty about getting a murderer off! She recounted:

The Situation Has Been Sober For 18 Months! Get The Deets On The Jersey Shore Star's Gym, Tan, Struggle!

Congrats to The Situation!

In a new interview with People, Mike Sorrentino opens up about his difficulties with drugs and with the law. In case you hadn't heard, the Jersey Shore star was indicted this month on evading taxes for nearly $9 million of income.

Considering how his last tax troubs hurt his recovery process, there was reason to worry.

The reality star was actually sober for nearly two years after going to rehab in 2012. But after being charged with tax evasion for the first time in 2014, he needed a way to cope.

Now, he didn't turn to drugs immediately. Obviously tanning and laundry aren't that good for relieving stress, but the gym was. Until he worked out so hard he cracked his ribs.

It was the painkillers prescribed by a doctor that sent him back down the path of relapse. He laments:
