Soccer Superstar Lionel Messi Sentenced To 21 Months In Prison For Fraud — But He'll Probably Never See A Jail Cell!

Filed under: ZportzLegal MattersSoccerControversy

Well this seems pretty foul…

Lionel Messi is pretty much God's gift to soccer (sorry — football), but that doesn't mean he's the best at everything else in his life — like his finances.

In fact, the 29-year-old superstar was just sentenced to 21 months in prison for three counts of tax fraud early Wednesday morning!

We guess it's a good thing Leo decided to retire so young… because according to Spanish courts, the former Barcelona forward was accused of hiding more than $11 MILLION between 2007 and 2009!

However, along with his father Jorge Horacio Messi, Lionel is expected to serve out his sentence under probation as opposed to any actual jail time due to Spain's leniency on first-time offenders/the most famous man in the country.

Score one for Leo!

With that said, $11M is a ton of money, so maybe they'll try to make an example out of the Argentinian athlete after all??

Yeah… probably not.

Abby Lee Miller Says She Might Not Be In Some Episodes Of Dance Moms' New Season! Find Out WHY!

Filed under: Legal MattersReality TV

What even IS Dance Moms without Abby Lee Miller?!

It looks like the new season of Dance Moms might be missing its star… at least for a few episodes!

Abby Lee Miller recently revealed in a newsletter that there's a good chance we won't see her in a portion of the popular program!

For those of you wondering why the controversial dance instructor wouldn't appear on her own show, the 49-year-old explained that she doesn't get along with a member of the production staff, writing:

"If I've gone missing from a few Episodes in Season 6, don't believe anything anybody says. No doubt, I am fighting with a Producer."

Yikes!

Now, we know what you're thinking. Abby is known for being hot-blooded, angering easily, and overreacting, so that has to be what's happening in this new feud, right?

Bryan Singer's Sexual Abuse Accuser Has Been Sentenced To Two Years In Prison For Fraud!

Filed under: Legal Matters

Legal karma?!

As we reported last year, Michael Egan — the man who famously accused director Bryan Singer of sexual abuse when he was a teenager — was charged with securities fraud after he fooled at least 14 individuals to give him money for fake investments.

Allegedly, the 33-year-old used the dough — a reported $300,000 — to fund his lavish lifestyle.

Well on Tuesday, a judge has sentenced Egan to two years in prison.

As we wrote, Michael's claims against the X-Men director, as well as two other Hollywood executives, were dismissed.

The convicted criminal's former attorney — Jeffrey Herman — even issued formal apologies to the three wrongfully accused men.

Herman said:

"I deeply regret the pain, suffering and damage the lawsuits and publicity have caused you, and your family, friends and colleagues."

We just hope justice is brought down on anyone who breaks the law!

Fox News' So-Called 'Terrorism Expert' Was Just Indicted On Charges That He Lied About His Entire CIA & Military History!

no title

Well this is super embarrassing for FOX News!

A man named Wayne Simmons, calling himself a "terrorism expert" and "former CIA operative," has appeared consistently on the national news network for the past 13 years as an analyst on segments surrounding war, foreign relations, intelligence, and national defense.

Simmons, who says he has 27 years of expertise behind him as an "outside paramilitary special operations officer," has discussed on the cable giant hundreds of different topics, among them what he views as President Barack Obama's soft stance on anti-terrorism activities, and how waterboarding apparently isn't torture.

And because Simmons has nearly three decades of Central Intelligence Agency experience under his belt, his views are pretty well-respected in the political realm, especially by right-wing politicians and pundits.

Well… that all changed on Thursday afternoon, when Simmons was indicted by a federal grand jury and then arrested by police for allegedly
