FBI Catches Woman Trying To Extort Duggar Family!!

duggar family extortion

We can't believe someone would do this to such a wholesome family!!

Teresa Hunt has been arrested and faces federal extortion charges after being caught in an FBI sting.

Teresa wants Discovery Communications to pay her $10,000 or cancel the Duggar show. In exchange, she would NOT release "shocking" photos of Amy Duggar — a first cousin of the family.

Discovery contacted the FBI who sent an agent to act as a Discovery rep. When he phoned Teresa, she apparently said she already had offers of $3,000 for the pics. She emailed them over and demanded $10,000 to shut her up.

Well… needless to say, they got her!

Former American Apparel Employees Sue Dov Charney AGAIN

dov-charney-sued-again-for-defamation.jpg

Another day, another lawsuit for Dov Charney.

Three former American Apparel employees, who are suing the CEO for sexual harassment, filed another lawsuit alleging defamation against Charney and company photographer Kyung Chung.

The lawsuit filed on Tuesday said Irene Morales, Alyssa Ferguson and Tesa Lubans-Dehaven suffered "emotional distress, invasion of privacy and impersonation online" after three fake blogs were created in their names.

The NSFW sites (which are still live) feature nude photos of the accusers, emails and text messages allegedly sent to Dov as well as admissions of extortion.

We viewed the sites a while ago and couldn't help but notice some of the emails look really shady and/or fake.

All three are seeking damages.

Beyonce Allegedly Ruined Christmas For 70 People

Filed under: Legal MattersBeyonceSad Sad

Beyonce Ruins Christmas

Why, Beyonce, Whyyyyy??

Beyonce is being accused of causing 70 people to lose their jobs the week before Christmas!

So there was supposed to be this video game coming out that starred Beyonce called Starpower: Beyonce, and the makers of the game claim they had a deal in place in 2010 to create it.

And then Beyonce supposedly wanted more money:

According to the docs, things went awry during a "crucial moment in the project's development" when Beyonce made "an extortionate demand" for more money — even though the two sides already had a deal in place.

Gate Five claims her move "drove 70 people into unemployment, the week before Christmas" … and notes that one of the project's backers described her conduct as "morally reprehensible."

That does sound a little not cool, B!

Now the company wants the $6.7 million they put into the development, and more than $100 million they projected to make in profits if the game had been completed.

That's a pretty hefty lawsuit, and if they win, Beyonce sure will regret wanting more money! Wow!

Though, we'd like to hear her side of the story first!

B, let us know!
