Alleged Charleston Church Shooter Dylann Roof Has Pleaded Not Guilty To All Charges

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooLegal MattersSad SadViolence

Dylann Roof has pleaded not guilty.

The accused gunman in last month's tragic shooting in Charleston, South Carolina has pleaded not guilty to all federal charges.

According to authorities, Dylann Roof had confessed to shooting and killing nine people at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church on June 18.

The alleged murderer's lawyer admitted that the 21-year-old actually wanted to plead guilty to all 33 federal charges. However, the attorney said he couldn't allow his client to do so.

The counsel explained that he couldn't advise Dylann since the government is still deciding whether or not it will seek the death penalty for his accused crimes.

We hope that whatever the government decides, justice is served on behalf of all the victims and their families. Our hearts go out to everyone affected by this terrible tragedy.

| Filed under: ZportzR.I.P.Sad SadWrestling

Roddy died of cardiac arrest in his home.

So sad.

Rowdy Roddy Piper has passed away at 61 years old. The WWE star died of a heart attack in his Hollywood home on Thursday night.

In the '80s, the wrestling legend was one of the biggest names in the sport. The athlete's rep is very upset at his passing, saying:

"Rod was a good friend as well as a client and one of the most generous, sincere and authentic people I have ever known. This is a true loss to us all."

Nine years ago, Roddy — whose real name is Roderick George Toombs — was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma. But last year he said his cancer was in remission.

The Canadian had been pretty active on Twitter this week. On Thursday, he wrote about how he was supposed to appear on The Inappropriate Earl Podcast Friday afternoon.

The wrestler leaves behind his wife and four kids.

Our hearts go out to Roddy's loved ones during this difficult time.

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

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

| Filed under: Legal MattersCourtney LoveSad SadFrances Bean Cobain

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?

Nick Gordon Desperate To Attend Bobbi Kristina's Funeral — Begs Bobby Brown For His Permission

| Filed under: R.I.P.Love LineBobby BrownSad SadBobbi Kristina

Nick Gordon desperately wants to attend Bobbi Kristina's funeral.

While the logistics of Bobbi Kristina's funeral on Saturday have yet to be fully figured out, one thing for sure is that Nick Gordon was NOT invited.

Ever since BK was found unresponsive in a bathtub, most members on both sides of her family have believed he played a part in her tragic death.

And despite currently being a person of interest in the investigation behind the passing of his former flame, Nick is still trying to secure his seat at the funeral.

The 25-year-old is reportedly begging Bobby Brown and Pat Houston to let him attend, emailing the family for their approval, writing:

"I loved Krissi with all my heart and I am destroyed that she is gone and I need to say goodbye."

It seems with the date quickly approaching, he's really grasping. He also continued:

"I'm begging you both to please put your differences aside and allow me this chance… Krissi loved me very much and she would want me there."

Nick was also banned from visiting Bobbi in the hospital, so we can only imagine how much he'd want to see her one last time.

And we doubt the irony will be lost on Bobby considering a similar situation occurred following Whitney Houston's death.

Though we can't imagine how the family might react if he were to show up on Saturday.

Do U think Bobby and Pat should invite him? SOUND OFF in the comments section (below)!
