A popular Brazilian actor has died after drowning in a river where he had shot scenes for his hit soap opera.

Domingos Montagner went for a swim on Thursday afternoon in the São Francisco River in a small town called Caninde in the northeastern Brazilian state of Sergipe — but during his outing, he was carried away by a strong current.

This is all according to actress Camila Pitanga, who was apparently with the 54-year-old when the incident occurred. Luckily, she was able to swim to a rock and cling to it, eventually pulling herself out of the water before getting help for Montagner.

Things are not going swimmingly for him right now…

Ryan Lochte may have won a gold medal at the 2016 Summer Olympics, but he really captured the world's attention when he claimed that he and three of his teammates were robbed at gunpoint in Rio de Janeiro.

However, after local authorities confirmed that there actually was no mugging… Ryan finally apologized for his inappropriate behavior on Friday morning (though still didn't technically take responsibility for falsifying a police report).

His privilege may be keeping him from seeing the severity of his actions right now, but we have a feeling that losing MILLIONS in endorsements may just drive the point home!

no title

Go for the fool's gold??

While the 2016 Summer Olympics haven't been as much of a trainwreck as viewers were predicting they'd be, Rio de Janeiro was still the center for a number of scandals over the past two weeks.

Most notably, however, has to have been Ryan Lochte's alleged mugging that took place Saturday night!

Olympic Swimming Star Ryan Lochte Was Held Up At Gunpoint In Rio Last Night!

no title

UPDATE, 2:33 p.m. ET: We are learning more about Lochte's close call during the hold-up, and the details are scary!

According to TMZ, Lochte was in a cab with three other swimmers when men dressed as police ordered everybody out and down to the ground. (That's something we've seen before at these Olympics.)

The other swimmers complied, but at first Lochte refused, since he hadn't done anything wrong.

That's when, according to the report, one of the robbers put a gun to Lochte's head (!) and cocked it (!!), and asked for the swimmer's wallet.


Lochte obliged, of course, and it appears that the swimmers involved were unharmed. Crazy…

Also, on a more humorous note, there's this (below):


This story is scary — or just plain weird.

Ryan Lochte was apparently held up at gunpoint early Sunday morning in Rio De Janeiro, according to the Olympic star's own mother.
