lindt cafe hostage situation 460494622

It's finally over.

In case you haven't heard, an undisclosed number of people were taken hostage in Sydney, Australia's Lindt Chocolat Cafe on Monday morning around 9:45 a.m.

Six hours into the siege, five hostages managed to escape. Hours later, the New South Wales police announced the end of the siege at 02:44 a.m. on Tuesday after tactical units stormed the building.

Sources have been reporting several injuries and possible deaths. Police have identified the gunman as Man Haron Monis, a 50-year-old Muslim cleric who was granted political asylum in Australia after fleeing his country in 1996.

Monis was reportedly shot and killed at the scene; others may also be dead but this has not yet been confirmed. Several have been injured.

Officials are saying Monis acted alone, and was not part of a larger terrorist plot.

Updates to follow.

Alanis Morissette Being Sued By Nanny! Says She Was Held Against Her Will!

alanis morissette and husband being sued by nanny claims she was held against her will

And she thought her home birth was painful!!!

Alanis Morissette and her husband Mario Treadway are being sued by their former nanny who says she was forced to work in harsh conditions!

Bianca Cambeiro, who was employed by the couple from August 2011 to March 2013, is citing one particular night where she worked a 12 hour shift looking after baby Ever.

According to the lawsuit, she was not allowed to leave the room or even take a break to eat unless Alanis or Mario was in the room or the daytime nanny showed up, and is essentially saying she was held hostage.

Bianca is also saying she missed out on more than $30,000 in overtime payments, but she's suing for a whopping $100,000 saying she also suffered from emotional distress!

The singer has yet to speak out about the lawsuit, but c'mon Alanis. You Oughta Know it's NOT okay to hold someone against their will!!

Paul says he's anxious to put LiLo in his rear-view mirror, yet he had no trouble slamming the gurl with more shade than a solar eclipse this week while he was promoting The Canyons at the Venice Film Festival.

Christopher Dorner Took His Own Life? Fugitive Ex-Cop's Cause Of Death Revealed!

Filed under: Legal MattersSad Sad

christopher dorner suicide

Sadly, it appears that this needless spree of violence ended just as many of them tend to: with the assailant, having been backed into a corner by authorities, turning his weapon onto himself.

The country watched in despair and horror as Ex-LAPD officer Christopher Dorner went on a weeks-long rampage across three counties in California that ultimately resulted in the deaths of four individuals, two hostages trapped in a cabin on Big Bear Lake, and a shoot-out that erupted into flames.

While San Bernardino County Sheriff John McMahon relayed to the press earlier this week that the vengeance-fueled murderer was, in fact, the body pulled from the blaze, there has been mountains of speculation as to whether or not it was this, or shots fired from authorities, that took his life, and now, we know that it was most likely neither.
