Stormy Daniels Sues Columbus PD Vice Officers Over 2018 Strip Club Arrest

Breaking News

Stormy Daniels is taking some of the police officers who arrested her at a strip club last year to court — claiming they only went after her for speaking out against President Trump.

The former porn star just filed suit against several members of the Columbus Division of Police who serve in the vice unit, in which she alleges the only reason these cops falsely arrested her last summer at Sirens is quite simple … allegiance to Trump.

In the docs — obtained by TMZ — Stormy claims that the officers listed entered into a conspiracy with each other upon learning that she’d be making an appearance in the area, and decided to go undercover with the sole intention of retaliation and ruining her rep.

Stormy had recently spoken out about her alleged affair with Trump on “60 Minutes,” and she believes the actions of these officers were in direct response to that. 

She claims the cops violated her civil rights by falsely arresting and imprisoning her, and now … she’s asking a judge to award her damages for it. 

Stormy might have a case … as the Columbus PD police chief acknowledged her arrest was a mistake, which eventually triggered a federal corruption probe into the matter. 

‘Pretty Little Liars’ Star Shay Mitchell Reveals She Miscarried in 2018

“Pretty Little Liars” star Shay Mitchell rung in the new year with some tragic news for her followers … she miscarried in 2018.

The actress was going over her year in review on her Instagram story, and toward the end she revealed the miscarriage by posting a photo of a sonogram with an emoji of a broken heart and a caption right before that read, “Lastly, although it was an amazing year, it didn’t come without some hardships.”

She then put up a lengthy message about the facade that is social media which read, in part, “We all have to deal with various struggles and challenges in life. And sometimes it’s easier to only showcase the good times on social media, which is what leads many people to criticize it for its lack of authenticity.”

She continued … “Having so many people follow me on Instagram and read my posts is both incredibly humbling and hugely uplifting. The support and affection that so many of you show me lifts me up during even my darkest days, one of which happened last year after I miscarried and lost the child of my hopes and dreams.” 

Shay did not disclose who the father was, but she’s recently been linked to Matte Babel, a TV host and reporter. He hasn’t commented on any miscarriage himself. 

Demi Lovato Reflects on 2018 … ‘I Will Never Take Another Day In Life for Granted’

Demi Lovato is thankful she survived 2018 — after an overdose nearly killed the singer — saying she’ll never take another day for granted again.

Lovato is taking time to reflect on the year that was, saying, “So grateful for the lessons I’ve learned this year. I will never take another day in life for granted, even the bad ones. Thankful for my fans, friends, family and everyone who supported me throughout this year. God bless.”

While she doesn’t mention it specifically, Lovato is clearly referring to the almost fatal overdose she had back in July. Lovato had finished a night out with friends and returned to her Hollywood Hills home where she free-based what we’re told was likely oxy laced with fentanyl.

Lovato’s friend and security guard found her and performed life saving measures. She was hospitalized in Los Angeles for several weeks before going to rehab for several months.

The singer returned to Los Angeles in November and appears happy and healthy … even celebrating Christmas with her family last week.

Pete Davidson Chats Up Poolside Hottie to End 2018 … Rockin’ a New Fade Too

EXCLUSIVE

Pete Davidson is ending the year on a good note — he’s got a new haircut … and, possibly, a new girl by his side.

The ‘SNL’ star was hanging out in Miami Saturday with a mystery girl at the Mandarin Oriental hotel, where eyewitnesses tell us they were chatting over lunch. Hard to tell who this chick is, but one thing’s for sure … Pete seems to be happy in her company.

It’s been a rough year for Pete, so it’s great to see he’s enjoying himself to round out 2018 … and going wherever the hell his heart desires. 

You’ll recall … he was just in Cleveland last weekend watching Machine Gun Kelly‘s concert, and had the best seat in the house. He was covered up then, so we couldn’t make out his new ‘do. Now that we’re seeing it in all its glory, we gotta say … he looks fresh.

As for whether this was another date for Pete — he recently went out to dinner with a previous mystery girl — or just chillin’ with a friend … we simply don’t know.

There aren’t any giveaways here to tell us this was romantic, but if it was … good choice, PD. 

Barack Obama These Are a Few of My Favorite 2018 Things

Barack Obama had a busy year — especially when it comes to entertaining himself — because he’s got a looooong list of his favorite songs, movies and books.

The former Prez just shared 3 year-end lists of his 2018 faves, including 23 songs that feature tracks by J. Cole, Janelle Monae, Cardi B and 2 from Jay-Z — “Wow Freestyle” feat. Kendrick Lamar and “Apes**t” … which obviously features Beyonce.

Noticeably absent from his tracklist — Kanye West.

Barack also shares his top 15 movies of the year — which ranges from blockbuster hits like “Black Panther” to critical darlings like “Eighth Grade” and early Oscar buzz films like “If Beale Street Could Talk.” He also lists the Mr. Rogers documentary, “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?”

But, the standout on his trio of favorite lists is in his book roundup, for which he breaks his alphabetical format to list his wife Michelle‘s book, “Becoming,” numero uno … and includes the note, “obviously my favorite!”

Another notable book includes Nelson Mandela‘s “Long Walk to Freedom” … but there are so many more, including several he says appeared on earlier lists.

Seriously, how does the guy find the time?

And, with all year-end lists, we have to ask … who did Obama snub?

Miss Africa 2018 Winner Miss Congo’s on Fire … No Seriously, Help!!!

And, the winner of Miss Africa 2018 is … whoever saved her from major scalp injuries!!!

Miss Congo, Dorcas Kasinde, won the African beauty pageant hosted by the Cross River State Government Friday, but immediately after she was crowned … her hair went up in flames.

It appears the people onstage waving around celebratory sparklers to honor Miss Congo were responsible for setting her hair ablaze, but it seems like they noticed right away … and hopefully the fire did her no harm.

Kasinde reportedly beat out Nigeria’s Chiamaka Nnaemeka and Zambia’s Gladys Kayumba to take home the crown, and was awarded with $ 35k and a sport utility vehicle.

No word on the extent of her injuries.
