As you may be aware, The Birth of a Nation director and star Nate Parker recently faced a bit of heat from the press when he had to address rape charges from 17 years ago. To make matters worse, it just came to light that the woman who accused Parker of sexual assault committed suicide a few years back!
Nate and his Penn State college roommate, Jean Celestin, were both accused of raping a fellow student and in 2001 the director was tried but acquitted after it was revealed that he had a consensual sexual relationship with the woman before the night of the incident in question. As for Mr. Parker's buddy, he was sentenced to six months in prison, but appealed the decision and was ultimately let off the hook.
Just recently, the victim's brother came forward and spoke about his thoughts on the trial and how it affected his sister and lead to her death.
Well now the actor and director has broken his silence after apparently learning for the first time that his accuser had killed herself. In an honest Facebook note, he penned:
NBC's publicists must be clocking in some SERIOUS overtime!
In fact, several fans have since taken to Twitter to share screenshots of the seemingly homophobic and racist posts (below).
The legal drama is coming to an end.
As we reported earlier this month, Kesha dropped her sexual assault lawsuit against producer Dr. Luke in California. The two have been involved in a bitter legal battle that has damaged both of their careers.
On Friday, the We R Who We R singer also dropped her abuse allegations in her New York case as well.
In court, she told the judge that she is no longer relying on abuse claims in order get out of her contract with Luke's label, Kemosabe Records.
For the past couple of months, the Los Angeles musician has tried to appeal an April ruling where the court rejected all of her claims against the music maker.
Aside from the lawsuit, Kesha wants to get her music career on track, and has already sent 28 songs to her label.
We are eagerly awaiting her comeback.
This is an incredible show of good sportsmanship.
On Tuesday, two ladies took a tumble at the 2016 Olympics, during the first round of the women's 5000 meters run. US athlete Abbey D'Agostino accidentally clipped New Zealand's Nikki Hamblin from behind, and she fell to the ground.
On her way down, Miz Hamblin also caused Abbey to come crashing to the track.
While the American got back on her feet almost immediately, the 28-year-old stayed down, seemingly hurt and upset. But instead of leaving the New Zealand runner behind, the 24-year-old helped her rival up.
The UK-born Olympian later described the moving moment, saying:
"When I went down I was like 'Why am I on the ground' and suddenly there was this hand on my shoulder."
The Massachusetts native had said to her:
"Come on, get up. We have to finish this race."
However, Abbey was visibly injured after the tumble, limping as she ran alongside her competitor. It wasn't long before Miz D'Agostino had to completely stop, which is when her knee buckled underneath her.
This time, Nikki helped her rival back up, offering support until her fellow runner could move on her own.
Ch-ch-check out the inspirational moment (below)!
Back off, Beliebers!
Right before he said goodbye to Insta, the Sorry singer was criticized by ex-girlfriends Hailey Baldwin AND Selena Gomez when he threatened to make his page private over the weekend. (Selena later said her comment was "selfish and pointless.")
On Tuesday, Miz Richie was spotted at a Starbucks in El Lay with a MASSIVE bodyguard.
Did Justin recommend she beef up her security? Or was it her dad Lionel Richie?! Who knows.
Either way, you're NOT going to mess with Sofia!
