Even though Ariana Grande herself already sees the importance of going back to Manchester to play a benefit concert just a few weeks after the terror attack at her previous show, she's not a fool — and neither, it seems, are the police in Boca Raton, Florida.

That's where the singer's mom lives, and her house — which is in a gated community — has gone above and beyond on extra security recently, with around-the-clock guards stationed outside of it.

Such a horrifying story is coming to light this morning out of Mississippi.

Cory Godbolt was taken into custody by authorities from multiple agencies in Lincoln County, Mississippi, after police say he shot and killed eight people — including a Lincoln County sheriff's deputy — earlier this morning in the small towns of Brookhaven and Bogue Chitto.

Authorities are tight-lipped on the details of this fast-moving case, but we do know that eight people in total are dead at what sounds to be a particularly awful domestic incident gone horribly wrong.

In a strange twist, reporters actually spoke to Godbolt on the scene as he was being taken into custody (pictured above), and he not only admitted to the killings, he also said he was looking to cause pain and wanted to die himself afterwards.

He said, about the sheriff's deputy not being one of his intended targets:

Late Friday night, a report came out that Jared KushnerDonald Trump's son-in-law and closest White House adviser — had at least three undisclosed contacts with a Russian ambassador during and after the 2016 Presidential campaign.

Minutes before, another even more damning report had landed, too: Kushner had approached Russian envoy Sergey Kislyak about creating a top-secret back-channel for communications at the Russian consulate in New York City.

The back-channel would have allowed The Donald and his then-transition team to communicate with Vladimir Putin without being monitored by U.S. national intelligence officials.

As the feds close in, and the special counsel appointed to investigate Trump's Russia ties continues to widen their probe in addition to the work the FBI is doing, it's now becoming painfully clear: Jared Kushner is fucked.

And his defense for all this?!

Oh, wait ’til you hear his defense!

It's this, from Kushner's lawyer Jamie Gorelick alleging his client had no memory of any contacts of phone calls he made with the Russians in the last year:

Can't say we're shocked.

As you know, Mel B and Stephen Belafonte are in the midst of the messiest of splits – and now, more information has come out suggesting the 42-year-old producer is trying to get every penny he can out of the situation!

According to TMZ, Belafonte recently filed legal docs claiming to be so dead ass broke that he's having to stay on friends' couches since he got kicked out of the family home.

A specific number for spousal support isn't listed in the documents, but Stephen said he's having a hard time adjusting to not having a full bank account:

"We lived a very comfortable, upper-class lifestyle … money was never an obstacle."

Poor thing.

He goes on to mention his $60K credit card debt while bringing up some of Mel's earnings (which is an estimated $220-250K per month), including $1.587 million from America's Got Talent in 2015, $300K a year from Jenny Craig, and $400K from other projects.

Boy, bye.
