Boyfriend Of Reporter Shot On Live TV Gives Her Taylor Swift Tickets To A Child Abuse Survivor She Interviewed

So sad and inspiring.

This is so heartbreaking and touching at the same time.

In August, WDBJ7 reporter Alison Parker and photographer Adam Ward were tragically gunned down on live television, allegedly by a disgruntled former employee.

Following this devastating loss, the 24-year-old's boyfriend, station anchor Chris Hurst, still had a pair of tickets to Taylor Swift's Wednesday night 1989 Tour stop in Greensboro, North Carolina.

He had gotten the blonde beauty for their six-month anniversary. He remembered she was often mistaken for the pop princess when they were out together, saying:

"She got stopped often when out shopping from people saying she looked like Taylor; she had that red lip, classic thing that I loved."

After Alison's death, Chris admitted he wasn't sure if he should see the show alone, or invite one of her loved ones. But then he remembered a very special someone his lovely lady had met through work.

The late journalist had bonded with a young child neglect victim she interviewed for a station special called Childhood Lost. She called the girl Hope, instead of her real name, in order to protect her identity.

Chris decided to give the tickets to the survivor and her adoptive mother. On Thursday, he revealed that the two had a wonderful time at the concert, explaining:

"Behind the scenes, the wonderful people at K92 radio and Republic Records, Swift's label, worked for weeks to secure a meet and greet with her for Hope and her mother! I was texting with Hope's new mother throughout the night and she said the concert was awe-inspiring, just like Alison was."

He even took to Twitter to share a sweet snap of Hope and Taylor together. Take a look (below):

no title

This is quite the macabre story.

The 28-year-old momma was apparently sick of the boys calling her "the meanest mommy," so she decided to literally force them to watch Joan Crawford's film representation of a mean mommy in the unsettling flick.

According to court docs, though, Lucas is adamant it wasn't her who duct taped her kids and forced them to watch what she termed "Hollywood's perfect representation of a mean mother."

Rather, Lucas argues, it was her boyfriend Glenn Oliver who ended up strapping down the little kids.

Teen Mom In A LOT Of Trouble For Gary Shirley Attack

Filed under: Icky Icky PooTV NewsMTVOops!Legal MattersReality TV

teen mom may face felony charges after attacking gary shirley

Punching your fiance in front of your baby ON CAMERA was probably not a smart move, Amber!

Teen Mom Amber Portwood is in a lot of trouble for attacking her fiance, Gary Shirley, in front of her baby, because in Indiana, domestic violence in front of a child under 14 years of age can be a felony.

According to police in Anderson, Indiana, Amber may face felony charges in her case. Not only that, but Amber is also going to be investigated by the Department of Child Services (DCS).

DCS will interview people including friends, neighbors, and other witnesses, and they have the right to do so according to the following Indiana state law:

“Failure to report child abuse/neglect is a crime … Indiana law requires any person who has reason to believe that a child is a victim of abuse or neglect to make an immediate oral report to DCS or to law enforcement.”

Indiana's DCS is currently in the assessment phase of their investigation, but they'll be requesting interviews with everybody who knows Amber and Gary soon.

Sounds like a serious mess that Teen Mom's gotten herself into!

What do U think of Teen Mom's situation? Do U think she deserves felony charges?
