Taylor Swift: Crazed Man Robs Bank in Effort to Impress Her

Posted: 12 Apr 2018 11:06 AM PDT

It's been about a month since Taylor Swift released her latest music video, but plenty of fans are still hooked on her music and still love her. Some love her too much.

One Connecticut man was determined to impress Taylor that he allegedly robbed a bank so that he could use the cash to win her over.

His mad shceme to propose to her did not work, and police took him into custody.

Bruce Rowley Mugshot

We're not saying that there's any one right way to do a proposal, but ... it does help your odds of getting a "yes" if the other person knows who you are.

But that didn't deter Bruce Rowley of Derby, Connecticut from trying to propose to Taylor Swift.

The proposal that police say that he had concocted -- which we suppose was also to be his meet cute with Taylor -- involved him driving 60 miles to her Rhode Island home and throwing fistfulls of money over her fence.

Rowley got the money, which authorities say totaled roughly $1,600, after having robbed a bank.

Specifically, Rowley is accused of robbing a Webser bank in Ansonia.

Taylor Swift is Delicate

Ansonia Police spokesman Lt. Patrick Lynch explains Rowley's bizarre motive and how is alleged crime connects to Taylor Swift.

"It seemed he wanted to propose to her."

But alas, what would surely have otherwise been a perfect marriage proposal ran across a little hitch.

"But she wasn't home when he went there. He said he threw some of the money over a fence to impress her."

As it turns out, he explained it all to police after they pursued his car into Connecticut for the alleged bank robbery.

"We didn't know about Taylor Swift until our officers picked him up from state police to drive him back to Ansonia. He began to talk all about it in the cruiser."

When a suspect begins to talk about their crime and motive without any provocation, it's generally known as an "excited utterance," which is considered admissible in court.

Rowley is charged with second-degree robbery and fourth-degree larceny.

There are a number of funny elements to this story, but overall, it's scary.

We're talking about a stalker. There are, in general, two forms of stalking. One takes the form of a lover or an ex or acquaintance who harasses a person. This particularly manifests as an abuser tracking down his victim because he cannot allow himself to lose control.

The other type is where someone has imagined an elaborate relationship with someone, often a celebrity, so vividly that they imagine that the celebrity feels the same way about them.

They may interpret tweets or offhanded statements in interviews as coded messages for them. It may have all gotten started with what they perceived to be eye contact during a concert.

Remember when President Reagan was shot? Whatever one may feel about him and his political legacy, that was a scary event.

The man who fired the shot was not in his right mind -- he believed that he was trying to impress Jodie Foster.

We're just lucky that Rowley's delusion did not lead him to shoot anyone.

Taylor Swift, Look What You Made Me Do

This mad scheme to propose to her was doomed from the start by so many things.

Taylor Swift, of course, is already happily in a relationship with Joe Alwyn.

We cannot imagine that Taylor, whose net worth is reportedly somewhere in the ballpark of $300 million, is going to be lured by anyone with any amount of money.

(Because she's a romantic at heart)

But we can't imagine her even blinking at $1,600 that seems to be raining down over her fence like dead leaves tossed by a petty neighbor.

Also, not for nothing, folks, but Taylor is famous for owning many, many homes. We have no idea what led Rowley to believe that he'd find her in Rhode Island.

We don't imagine that Rowley's going to get the Kanye treatment in one of Taylor's new songs.

Sure, she sings about major life events -- romances, breakups, feuds, downfalls. But you don't sing about stalkers.

It feeds into their delusions, and might encourage other stalkers to take similar actions. Or worse actions.

Hopefully, Rowley is undergoing a psychological evaluation and will be able to receive the help that he clearly needs.

Kate Middleton: Proof That She's Giving Birth VERY Soon!

Posted: 12 Apr 2018 10:53 AM PDT

Back in September, the world learned that Kate Middleton is pregnant with her third child.

As is always the case with this sort of thing, speculation about Kate's due date began within minutes of the announcement.

Kate Middleton, Very Pregnant

And as usual, Kate made no effort to mislead the public, but she also quite understandably feels that she should be allowed to keep certain details of her private life to herself.

So as the big day approaches, we still don't know exactly when Kate's third baby is scheduled to enter the world.

But if you thought the Royals' desire for secrecy would stop the British tabloid press from prying, you don't know the British tabloid press!

There have been several inaccurate predictions regarding Kate's delivery already, but now, the UK media is certain they've got it right.

And to be fair, there's actual evidence to support their claims this time:

Kate Middleton with a Smile

We already know from Kate's birth plan that she's planning to give birth at the Lindo Wing at St Mary's Hospital in London.

The Telegraph reports that earlier this week, hospital staff began preparing for the duchess' arrival.

In other words, it's a bad time to experience a medical emergency in London.

Crowd barriers have been erected to keep screaming hordes of fans and reporters at bay, and parking rules have been changed so that Kate and her army of attendants will not be left looking for spots.

Sources familiar with the facilities say the Lindo Wing is more like a luxury hotel than a hospital.

Kate Middleton is Very Pregnant

24-hour room service is available, and meals are freshly prepared by a gourmet chef.

Yes, the newest member of the royal family will enjoy the finest things beginning with his or her very first moments on Earth.

Kate hasn't been spotted in public in over a week, and it's believed she's resting up at Kensington Palace in preparation for the birth.

These are heady times for the UK's most famous family, as Kate is set to give birth just weeks before Prince Harry marries Meghan Markle.

Sure it's nice being born into royalty, but soon the little prince or princess will have an aunt who was on Suits!

We don't need to tell you which is cooler.

Khloe Kardashian: Best Friend Calls Out Tristan Thompson on Cheating!

Posted: 12 Apr 2018 10:36 AM PDT

So hey, how about all that Khloe Kardashian news, huh?

Honestly, one day you're so excited for a celebrity you don't know to start the family she's been dreaming about for years, and the next ...

Khloe Kardashian at 8 Months

It's been tough. It's been really tough.

First, TMZ posted a video of Tristan Thompson, the father of Khloe's daughter and her supposed soulmate, hooking up with a couple of ladies in a club in Washington D.C. back in October.

At the time, Khlow was three months pregnant.

The site then shared another video of Tristan getting fresh with another woman in a Manhattan club -- this one was reportedly filmed just last weekend.

A quick check of Cleveland Cavaliers travel schedule shows you that he was definitely in those cities when the damning footage was filmed.

So, you know, not cool, Tristan.

Kradling Khloe

Sources close to the couple have claimed that Khloe's confronted him about the whole thing, but he refuses to admit that he did anything wrong.

"He wants Khloe or her family to show him evidence that he was unfaithful this past weekend," the insider said. "Until she provides this to him, he is going to claim he is innocent."

Which is fine, he can claim anything he wants, but when multiple reputable media outlets are reporting that you've been cheating, and when they feel confident enough to post video of said cheating ...

The jig is pretty much up.

Poor, poor Khloe seemed to hear the news the same time the rest of us did, and it seems that it was stressful enough to send her into labor.

Khloe Kardashian Goes Bumpin

Yep, in the middle of all of this, she gave birth to her baby girl this morning!

It's a lot to take in, right?

But one of Khloe's best friends, Khadijah Haqq, has managed to sum things up pretty nicely.

Over on Instagram, Khadjiah shared a simple quote that read "The best thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother."

She didn't tag anyone, but like, did she honestly have to, did she?

Khadijah post

It's not exactly a mystery who she's referring to with this, and her followers are certainly picking up what she's putting down.

"Tristan is a pig," one person commented.

Another wrote that Khloe "deserves to be happy after the hell she went through with Lamar ... No one deserves!!"

Several people said that they were so upset for Khloe to be dealing with all of this during such a special time, and one pointed out that "The mother doesn't need his love, but definitely deserves his respect."

In an interesting little twist, there were actully lots and lots of Khadijah's followers who felt the need to point out that Tristan also stepped out on Jordan Craig when she was pregnant with their son.


"You should've posted this last year when he left his First baby mama for her," one of those people told Khadijah. "What goes around comes around."

Another said that "Khloe should have thought about that before sleeping with a man with a baby on the way. The way you get them is how you lose them."

Lots and lots of good points here, right?

But at the end of the day, Khloe is now the mother of a darling little baby girl, and she's got some tough choices to make about how to go forward with Tristan.

It's a good thing she at least has the support of her friends.

Meghan Markle: Shamed by Sister Over Wedding Snub

Posted: 12 Apr 2018 10:30 AM PDT

Anyone who has ever planned a wedding knows how stressful the invitation game can be.

Do you invite co-workers? Former co-workers? Friends of friends of friends of your parents?

It can turn into quite a mess... and that goes for nearly any bride, let alone the bride who will soon take part in the most famous wedding of the decade.

Meghan Markle in Happy Shock

As reported a few weeks ago, invitations to the Royal Wedding have gone out.

They've been received by friends, by loved ones of Prince William and Meghan Markle and by nearly every high of state not named Donald Trump.

But a few people are noticeably absent from the list of impending attendees:

Members of Markle's own family!

As we've detailed on many prior occasions, Markle is not especially close to some of her relatives, most specifically her half-sister, Samantha Grant.

The siblings are not close in age and were not raised in the same household, yet Grant has taken many opportunities to slam Markle over the last several months...

... and now she is doing so again.

Meghan Markle Says Hello

Depending on which reports you believe, around 600 people will attend Markle and William's wedding on May 19, while the reception afterward may include an audience of over 2,000 individuals.

But it doesn't sound as though Grant is included on either of these lists.

And she wants the world to know about it.

"At issue is not a matter of closeness as more than 1000 complete strangers are invited. Family is family," Grant tweeted on Wednesday, adding:

"I have an uncle I have only seen once but I would never say he is not family because we are not close. Humanitarians move forward with love and kindness especially to Family."

This is quite the rich dig, many would say.

Markle, after all, it nearly as well known for her humanitarian and charitable efforts as she is for her role on USA Network drama Suits.

s, markle

Grant then followed up her diss with another Tweet that reads:

"Smoke and mirrors cannot hide the elephant in the room. Out of respect, tradition, and humanitarianism, the #Markles should be invited if 2000 complete strangers are invited.

"Our uncle who got her the internship, brother, me, best friend of 30 years Nikki Priddy, nephews. Fact."

Perhaps Samantha should have considered this snub last year when she said of her half-sister:

"Hollywood has changed her. I think her ambition is to become a princess…The truth would kill her relationship with Prince Harry."

s, m2

To Markle's credit, she has never engaged Grant in any kind of back-and-forth.

We certainly can't imagine her responding to these sorts of taunts.

Especially not when she has to concern herself these days instead with talk that Prince William has been cheating on her.

We strongly doubt that claim, which you can read more about via the link directly above.

But let's just say this:

We actually believe it's more likely that Williams stepped out on Markle than Meghan ever extends a wedding invitation to Samantha Grant.

Tristan Thompson Says He Didn't Cheat on Khloe Kardashian; Here's Proof That He's Lying

Posted: 12 Apr 2018 10:36 AM PDT

As you've likely heard by now, Tristan Thompson was caught cheating on a 9-months-pregnant Khloe Kardashian this week.

Some details are still unclear, but everyone agrees that the thing for Tristan to do now is admit he was wrong, devote himself to changing his ways, and maybe even check into rehab.

Unfortunately, one person who doesn't see the value in that agenda is Tristan himself.

Shockingly, Tristan still claims he did not cheat on Khloe.

We're guessing she's not buying it, considering there's an ever-growing mountain of evidence indicating that Tristan has in fact been sleeping around.

Check out the full case against disgraced the Cleveland Cavs foward below...

1. An Ugly Pattern

Tristan thompson
Tristan doesn't have the greatest track record when it comes to fidelity. In fact, he left his pregnant girlfriend, Jordan Craig, in order to hook up with Khloe. But sources say he went to great lengths to convince the Kardashians he'd changed his ways. We now know it was all BS...

2. Horrendous Timing

Yesterday, several reliable media outlets, including TMZ and People magazine, reported that Tristan cheated on Khloe at least twice in the past six months. The news came as Khloe was preparing to welcome a child with Thompson. Now that the couple's baby girl has enetered the world, the stakes couldn't be higher.

3. The Proof

And how do we know Tristan has been unfaithful? Well, the outlets that made the original claims came bearing receipts, and it's getting harder and harder for Thompson to play innocent.

4. The First Incident

The first evidence of Tristan's infidelity is from back in October of 2017. Khloe would have been about three months pregnant at the time.

5. The Hookah Hookup

Video from the night in question shows Tristan getting intimate with two different women at a hookah lounge. One of the women puts her hand on Thompson's crotch. He later places his face on the other one's breasts.

6. And That's Not All...

Tristan and khloe
We're sure that probably would have been enough to prompt Khloe to kick her baby daddy to the curb. However, it wasn't long before news of a second, more recent incident emerged...

Khloe Kardashian Welcomes Baby Girl!!!

Posted: 12 Apr 2018 10:15 AM PDT

On Wednesday, the news that Khloe Kardashian was in labor was almost drowned out by reports about Tristan Thompson's cheating.

Now, despite all of the chaos and the cheating drama, there is finally some good news ...

Khloe celebrated the arrival of her baby girl!!! 

TMZ reported a short while ago that the 33-year-old Khloe Kardashian gave birth to her first child early Thursday morning.

At approximately 4:00 this morning, in a hospital just outside of Cleveland, Ohio, Khloe delivered her first child with NBA star Thompson.

If you're hoping to know the baby name - and names from the Kardashians are always interesting - you may have to wait.

In a curious twist, the celebrity news site reports that Khloe has not yet decided upon a name for her baby girl.

Khloe Kardashian on E!

Given the circumstances, it's understandable that she's feeling less than certain - or has other things on her mind.

This happy news comes only two days after news broke that Tristan Thompson was caught cheating on Khloe.

Maybe you heard about that?!

On Tuesday evening, The Daily Mail revealed that Tristan had been filmed appearing to kiss a woman at a bar.

At the time, it was already known that Khloe might give birth at any day; Kardashian has yet to comment on it.

Khloe Kardashian in Lots of Lingerie

Shortly thereafter, TMZ released a video that appears to show Tristan getting physical with a pair of women in a hookah lounge, back in October.

The video looks quite incriminating, to say the least, and at that time, Khloe would have been three months pregnant with his child.

Then, The Shade Room came out with a video that allegedly shows Tristan with the woman from the bar, no longer in the bar.

It appeared that the two were headed for a more private location for a potential hookup, although we cannot confirm that.

Reportedly, Tristan Thompson denies cheating on Khloe.


That denial didn't stop him from getting booed by his own fans last night, though he's likely concerned with other things as well.

Thompson might be freaked out about getting busted, or maybe he doesn't care if his adventuring penis causes problems at all.

Khloe wouldn't be the first baby mama he left, after all; Thompson dumped a pregnant Jordan Craig for Kardashian last year.

But surely he has to care when it's impacting him in his professional life. Like we said, Tristan reportedly denies the whole thing.

And a report even claim that Khloe bought his denials

Khloe Kardashian with the Smooch

We'll see if that lasts.

In the face of mounting evidence, many suspect that Khloe couldn't dismiss the images and videos that the entire world has seen.

She's not dumb, folks.

TMZ does not mention whether or not Tristan Thompson was present for his daughter's birth, or how/if Khloe has reacted to the scandal.

It was previously reported that Kris Jenner hopped onto a plane and flew out to Cleveland so that she could be by her daughter's side.

She was there to witness the birth of her grandchild, and one imagines that she would be a comforting and reassuring presence.

Khloe at 29 Weeks

In the face of the grief, outrage, embarrassment, and betrayal that Khloe must feel, having her mom there must've been a huge relief.

Kim and Kourtney were reportedly packing their bags to fly out at a moment's notice to support their sister and meet their niece, as well.

In the meantime, Kylie kept posting butt pics.

We kid ... but she did post butt pics. Anyway, we don't know what name Khloe Kardashian will choose for her precious baby girl.

At this point, given how murky their relationship has become, one wonders if Tristan Thompson will get any input on that matter.

In fact, some fans speculate that perhaps Khloe had decided upon a name with Tristan, and is now reconsidering it in light of this week.

Regardless, congratulations to Khloe on the birth of her daughter! We only wish that Khloe's other circumstances were not so complicated.

Donald Trump May Have a Love Child Out There

Posted: 12 Apr 2018 08:32 AM PDT

According to a bombshell new report, Tiffany Trump may no longer be her father's most ignored child.

Indeed, Ronan Farrow writes in The New Yorker that Donald Trump has been accused of having an affair back in the 1980s with a Trump Organization employee...

... that resulted in the creation of a baby!

Donald Trump in a Foul Mood

Trump, of course, has been in the news of late for allegedly sleeping with at least two women (Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal) while married to Melania Trump.

The Commander-in-Chief sleeping around is not exactly news at this point.

But The New Yorker and Associated Press allege something very different.

On Thursday morning, both outlets wrote about Dino Sajudin, a doorman at Trump Tower in the 1980s who approached a reporter with American Media, Inc. in 2015, about five months before Trump announced his Presidential run.

Among other publications, American Media, Inc. owns The National Enquirer.

Sajudin told American Media that he heard through the grapevine (via multiple high-level Trump employees) that Trump impregnated an unnamed woman many years ago.

To be clear, Sajudin did NOT say he had first-hand knowledge of this scandal.

Our Actual President

However, Sajudin was paid $500 by The National Enquirer to sit down for a polygraph, which insiders say he passed.

He was then paid an additional $29,500 by the tabloid, for a total of $30,000.

In exchange for this sum of money, Sajudin was reportedly prohibited from telling his love child story to any other publication.

The Enquirer, in turn, decided NOT to publish Sajudin's account, which is a practice that has become known as "catch and kill."

In this kind of scenario, an organization "catches" an alleged misdeed and then pays off the source behind it in order to "kill" the story before it reaches the public.

McDougal has claimed she was the victim of a similar scenario.

Catching and killing a story is not illegal.

There's nothing inherently sinister about a newspaper paying for information and then choosing not to publish it, especially if its own investigation determines this information was false.

Donald Trump: Down in Various Dumps

And this is what National Enquirer Dylan Howard now claims, telling Radar Online that it never ran Sajudin's account because it simply deemed it to be untrue.

Says Howard:

"When we realized we would be unable to publish, and other media outlets approached the source about his tale, we released Sajudin from the exclusivity clause that had accompanied his $30,000 payment, freeing him to tell his story to whomever he wanted."

(For the record, no proof of this release exists at the moment.)

Farrow, however, writes in The New Yorker that he has met the woman who supposedly fathered Trump's child, along with the now-adult child himself.

Neither of their identities have been released to the public.

Truth be sadly told, many voters likely would not even care even if this story did prove to be true.

Donald Trump Isn't Worried

It would mean Trump cheated on then-wife Ivana in the 1980s... but we already know he cheated on her!

He eventually married Marla Maples, one of his mistresses at that time.

It would also mean Trump fathered a kid out of wedlock and has kept that a secret for decades.

But the larger issue at play here is whether or not American Media has made it an ongoing practice to catch sordid Donald Trump allegations and then kill them before they see the light of day.

The President and a major publishing company working together to keep the former's unethical doings quiet would be quite the scandal...

... right?


Who the heck even knows these days.

Kylie Jenner Posts Butt Pics While Khloe Kardashian Deals With Cheating Drama

Posted: 12 Apr 2018 08:14 AM PDT

Right now, most of the Kardashian family has put a halt to their perpetual posting on social media. Why? Because Khloe Kardashian is in labor.

Oh, and she's embroiled in a scandal because her baby daddy Tristan Thompson was caught cheating on her.

But unlike her sisters, Kylie Jenner keeps posting pics like nothing's happening. What gives?

Kylie Jenner Promotes Kylie Cosmetics Post-Baby

Kylie and Khloe have always been close, right?

Both of them found themselves being the subject of terrible jokes based upon their appearances years ago, in the early days of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

And both of them underwent radical body transformations that not only changed their looks and self esteems but revolutionized their brands.

These days, Khloe is known for her fitness obsession.

And Kylie is known for her epic curves and serious booty.

Kylie Jenner, Post-Baby Butt

Kylie Jenner succinctly captioned this epic booty pic, shared on Wednesday, writing:

"Hump day."


The next photo was taken in the same place but at a different angle.

This time, she's advertising all of her curves ... even though she is thoroughly covered from head to toe.

And speaking of "advertising," she's also showcasing Kylie Cosmetics, as she reveals in her captions:

"Wearing DOLCE matte lip today just in case you were wondering."

Kylie Jenner Flaunts Her Post-Baby Curves

Kylie looks great, but that's not the issue.

Kourtney and Kim have both taken their endless barrage of bikini pics to a grinding halt.

Khloe is in labor with her first child.

Unlike most of the family, Khloe has been living out in Cleveland. That's not a choice that many would make, but that's where Tristan Thompson lives.

And Khloe thought that the two of them would be spending their lives together.

TMZ reports that Kris Jenner is already in Cleveland to be with Khloe while she goes through labor and gives birth. Kris is also likely there to console Khloe in the face of this horrible cheating scandal.

Kim and Kourtney are reportedly ready to fly out at a moment's notice. For the birth of their niece, but also for the 

Stormi Webster Asleep in Her Stroller

But ... why isn't Kylie focusing on Khloe?

One explanation may be that Kylie just can't up and fly out to Cleveland, even if Khloe is giving birth right this minute.

Because Kylie has her own baby, Stormi Webster. Kim has a husband -- and Chicago is her third child. Kylie is a first-time mom, and can't like the idea of flying out without her baby.

(Khloe of course cannot fly at this stage of pregnancy, assuming that she hasn't already given birth)

So maybe Kylie figures that, if she can't be there for Khloe in person and doesn't have any bags to pack, she might as well keep promoting her brand on social media.

There's a more worrisome possible explanation, however.

Perhaps Kylie believes Khloe's baby daddy when he claims that he never cheated on Khloe.

If so, she must figure that she shouldn't stop posting to Instagram because of "fake news" about Khloe.

Summer Goals

Let's hope not, but we should remember that Kylie has displayed some worrisome naivete in recent years.

Honestly, you can see vapor trails in the sky under that booty pic, which reminds us that it was just a couple of years ago that Kylie would post "chemtrails" conspiracy theory material on social media.

So ... yes, Kylie might be gullible enough to doubt multiple videos from multiple sources that appear to show Tristan Thompson cheating on a very pregnant Khloe Kardashian.

But we sure hope not. Kris, at least, should talk this out with her daughters.

And maybe Kylie had scheduled those posts but, if so, she might want to pausa the rollout of more posts for a day or two or she might come across looking insensitive to her sister's plight.

But we're sure that she cares about Khloe more than she cares about posting pics.
