XXXTentacion: Four Suspects Indicted for Murder

It’s hard to believe that it’s been more than a month since XXXTentacion was shot dead in Miami.

Earlier this month, police found one of XXXTentacion’s killers. Though police do not yet have all of the suspects in custody, prosecutors are moving forward.

They have already issued indictments. Let’s take a look at the details.

One of the alleged shooters was Michael Boatright, who was arrested earlier this month.

Trayvon Newsome is believed by police to have been the toher trigger man. Newsome is currently wanted by police.

Two other suspects are Dedrick Williams, who is in custody, and Robert Allen, for whom police are still searching.

TMZ reports that all four suspects in XXXTentacion’s murder were indicted by a grand jury 

On top of the obvious murder charge, all four men are also charged with armed robbery using a firearm.

XXXTentacion 4 Alleged Killer Indicted

According tot he Associated Press, Dedrick Williams was spotted on surveillance cameras and identified.

Though fearful of being labeled a snitch in prison for speaking to police, he did tell investigators that he did not know in advance that XXXTentacion would be robbed.

It was apparently Boatright and Newsome who carried out the actual robbery, or so investigators have been told.

Of course, felony murder rules mean that co-conspirators in crimes that result in murder are all indicted for murder, regardless of which individual did the killing.

XXXTentacion had been looking at motorcycles just before he was shot to death in an apparent armed robbery.

The rapper was only 20 years old, and had some very passionate young fans.

He also apparently acted as something of a mentor to younger people in the business.

14-year-old Danielle Bregoli, who launched her record-breaking music career after insulting Dr. Phil on television, felt a very close bond to XXXTentacion.

Their last conversation, just days before his death, was an argument in which she told him that she never wanted to speak with him again.

Danielle will always regret her final words to him, she says.

XXXTentacion was also infamous for an alleged beating of a gay man, and for being accused of horribly abusing his girlfriend Geneva Ayala to the point that she had to have reconstructive surgery on her face due to damage to her skull.

The shocking descriptions of what is said to have done to her during their relationship amount to torture.

Unfortunately, because of this, his ex is reviled by some of his more ardent fans.

Though his abused girlfriend just wants him to rest in peace, some fans objected to her presence at a vigil for him, and kicked her out.

Afterwards, they burned what she had left in his memory.

XXXTentacion continues to be mourned by many of his fans. Some of them are so young that this he is the first celebrity musician whom they’ve lost.

Some say that a video made shortly before the rapper’s passing predicted his own death.

In fact, some sources even say that XXXTentacion talked about wanting to die young like some of the great rappers of the ’90s.

Hopefully, the people who were in his life will get a sense of closure once his murder trial draws to a close.

For now, it is just beginning.


The Voice Recap: Which Four Contestants Got Eliminated?

Eight became four on the latest episode of The Voice as the NBC juggernaut whittled down the contestants to make way for next week’s grand finale. 

But were the right people sent home? It’s not like the coaches have final say on who makes it to the finale. There are a variety of metrics that come into play, and one of them is iTunes sales. 

As always, there was a lot of beating around the bush before we got to the final results. Kane Brown showed up as a guest act and performed a surprisingly solid song, “Heaven.”

The true showstopper, however, was Blake Shelton who performed “I Lived It.”

There’s no denying that Blake is a great performer. When he’s up on the stage, it’s like all of the other country crooners aspire to be just like him. He’s a tough act to follow. 

When we got to the actual result, Spensha Baker, Brynn Cartelli, and Kyla Jake were granted a place in the finale, but Rayshun LaMarr and Jackie Foster were immediately sent packing. 

The middle three consisted of Pryor Baird, Kaleb Lee, and Britton Buchanan, who had to sing for one last chance to return to the stage on Monday night. 

Let’s break down the three performances. 

Pryor Baird (Team Blake) – “Soulshine”

Pryor continued doing what he does best: Oozing confidence and proving that he’s a force to be reckoned with. His rendition of this Allman Brothers classic was solid if a little unspectacular. 

Kaleb Lee (Team Kelly) – “Simple Man”

Kaleb continued to be a bit all over the place. His performances have never been anything to write home about and his latest one seems like something he could be sent home over. 

Britton Buchanan (Team Alicia) – “Dancing On My Own”

Okay, so here’s the thing: The moment it emerged there was a sing-off, and Pryor was involved, I thought Pryor had it in the bag, but Britton came, he conquered and left me wanting a whole lot more of those wonderful vocals. 

When it got down to it, Britton was saved, and Pryor and Kaleb were sent packing. Like, it’s great Britton got the chance, but I can’t help shake the feeling one of the other three should have gone home. 

Poor Pryor. 

What do you think of these results?

Who do you want to win?

The Bachelorette Spoilers: Becca Kufrin Final Four REVEALED!

Filming for Becca Kufrin’s journey slash season is still underway, but The Bachelorette spoilers reveal who makes her elusive final four.

Whose hometowns will the brunette beauty visit?

In one month’s time, Kufrin will take the reins of the popular reality franchise and begin handing our roses in her quest for love.

If you know anything about the ABC show, then you’re well aware that The Bachelorette spoilers leak like a sieve all spring. Every year.

Ever since Becca was named The Bachelorette – the night after she was eliminated from The Bachelor – speculation has run wild.

And, to the surprise of no one, Reality Steve (a.k.a. the Magic Eight Ball of The Bachelorette spoilers) has been on top of this like …

… well, like Arie on Lauren B. Yeah. Too soon. Sorry.

Anyway, as the promotional photo above says, let’s do the damn thing! As of this report, Becca has already narrowed down the competition.

Big time. Only four lucky fellas remain in the hunt.

Obviously, the content you are about to read contains Bachelorette spoilers, so proceed at your own risk, if that didn’t go without saying.

According to Steve, who previously revealed Becca Kufrin’s final six, she followed her predecessor’s lead in the episode before hometowns.

With six men left, she embarked on three one-on-one dates and one three-on-one group date, handing out roses at the end of each.

The final four who received them?!

1. Jason Tartick. A 29-year-old who currently lives in Seattle, Jason is a native of Buffalo, New York, which is where his date will be filmed.

According to Steve the soothsayer, Jason will take Becca to – where else – the Anchor Bar, home of the ORIGINAL buffalo wings.

Romantic as s–t.

Beyond that, they’ll presumably engage in such activities as turning up the thermostat, complaining about football, and eating.

Hey, there’s nothing wrong with slathering various deep-fried meats with hot sauce and cheese as a local pastime. Don’t hate.

2. Blake Horstmann. Currently living in big city Denver, the 28-year-old Blake will take the beautiful Minnesotan to his Colorado hometown. 

A sales rep for Coors, he has a degree in marketing and communications, and already made quite a debut by showing up with a horse.

He’s horsing around, but only literally.

3. Garrett Yrigoyen. The town of Manteca, Calif., where his parents live, will be the site of Garrett’s hometown date with Becca.

Mr. Yrigoyen previously played baseball for the University of Nevada, and currently works as a surgical technology consultant.

Either he or a man with his name in the same city was engaged in 2015, so there’s that. Keep your eye on this guy next month.

It’s unclear if there will be outdoor activities, or whether the above image is just the obligatory Tinder profile fish pic staple.

4. Colton Underwood. Perhaps the most interesting and controversial of Becca’s final four, Underwood is a 26-year-old NFL free agent.

Originally from Aurora, Colo., his hometown date will be filmed in the Rocky Mountain State, not too far from Blake’s. Awkward.

Colton, who is reportedly the subject of some drama this season, previous dated Olympic gold medalist gymnast Aly Raisman.

There’s also talk of Underwood trying to holler at Tia Booth from Arie’s season of The Bachelor on Instagram, so there’s that.

Players …

Take a look at the rest of the guys vying for her above and see what you think. There are some interesting characters for sure.

Spoilers aside, do you think Becca picked a good final four? Will she make it to the altar? What epic twists await this season?

All we can do is stay tuned.


Tom Cruise: I Haven’t Seen Suri in FOUR YEARS!

Tom Cruise doesn’t garner many headlines for his movie work these days, but his personal life?

Well, that’s a different story entirely…

As his box-office success declines, Tom’s private life seems to only get more and more bizarre.

At the center of the public’s continued fascination with Tom is his faith in Scientology and his relationship (or lack thereof) with his youngest daughter. 

Suri Cruise is 11 years old these days, and there are reports that she hasn’t seen her dad in over four years.

According to In Touch the last time the father and daughter were spotted together was in September of 2013.

Since then, the tabloid alleges, Tom and Suri have communicated only by phone.

And there have been long periods of time during which they had no communication at all.

There was a talk of a reunion in June of last year, when it was revealed that Tom and Suri would both be in LA for several weeks, and were even scheduled to be in the same neighborhood on Father’s Day.

Sadly, they never came face-to-face.

“Tom could have easily made the trip to see Suri. It only takes about 30 minutes without traffic,” a source said at the time.

“It would’ve only added a few hours to his busy schedule.”

The problem, it seems, is that Tom feels he must choose between his faith and his family.

Those who know him best say Cruise is devoted to Scientology above all else.

It seems Scientologist authorities have declared Katie a “suppressive person,” meaning that Tom is to avoid contact with her at all costs, lest she undermine his religious convictions.

The decree was made shortly after Cruise and Holmes decided to divorce, allegedly because she was growing increasingly uncomfortable with his beliefs.

Sadly, Tom’s relationship with his daughter has become collateral damage, as he’s cut ties with the girl in order to more effectively 

“Suri hasn’t been labeled a ‘supressive person,’ but Katie has,” an insider tells In Touch.

“And her closeness to her daughter likely makes seeing both off-limits to Tom.”

If there’s any silver lining to be found in this messy situation, it’s that Tom hasn’t been a part of Suri’s life in so long that the girl is no pained by his absence:

“Suri has stopped missing him,” says the source.

“Katie doesn’t want to bring up his name and have Suri start missing him all over again.”

Yes, ironically, it seems Cruise’s former family has declared the actor a suppressive person.

“Katie is more adamant than ever about not talking about him, publicly or privately,” says the source.

“With Tom missing from Suri’s life for so long, Katie believes her daughter only has distant memories of him,” the insider adds.

“At this point, Katie doesn’t want to bring up his name and have Suri start longing to see Tom all over again. It would be too painful for both of them.”

Sadly, the decision to completely cut Tom out of her daughter’s life is one that Katie likely won’t regret.
