For the first time in nearly 30 years, OJ Simpson is a COMPLETELY free man. In 1994, OJ was accused of murdering his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ron Goldman. Even though he was found not guilty in his murder trial, a civil suit found him liable for their deaths, and he was supposed to pay the families $33.5M. In 2007, OJ lead a group of armed men into a Vegas hotel room to steal back memorabilia OJ said had been stolen from him. He was released from prison in 2017 after serving 9 years of his 33-year sentence. OJ’s parole was set to expire in February, but for whatever reason, the Las Vegas parole board decided to end it earlier this month. OJ’s attorney says he is now “a completely free man.”

Flavor Flav was driving from Vegas to LA when a huge boulder fell on his car! A winter storm caused a giant rock about 6’ in diameter to roll down a cliffside and smash into the right side of Flavor Flav’s Audi, destroying the front end and shattering the windshield. His manager told E! News, “He is very fortunate to be alive and realizes it was an extremely close call.”

SPOILER ALERT!!!! Season 21 of “The Voice” is in the books. The Top 3 were Paris Winningham and Wendy Moten — both part of Team Blake— going up against Team Kelly’s Girl Named Tom. Girl Named Tom is a trio of siblings — Caleb, Joshua and Bekah. Bekah explained that when she was a baby, her brothers called her “Thomas,” and that’s how they came up with the name. During the show, we found out that Girl Named Tom made “The Voice” history. Not only were they the first trio to make the finale, they were also the first act in the show’s history to have 4 songs in the iTunes Top 10 at the same time. And then, history was made one more time when Girl Named Tom came the first trio to ever win “The Voice.”

Continuing on the “spoilers” theme, “Spider-Man” fans are doing whatever they can to avoid knowing what happens in “No Way Home.” The movie comes out Friday, but a lot of people are seeing it early at special screenings. Sony Pictures has posted a PSA to Twitter and YouTube with “Spider-Man” cast members basically begging people, “DON’T BE THAT PERSON.” But it doesn’t matter. Trolls don’t care if Tom Holland and Zendaya are asking you nicely not to ruin it for everybody. Trolls are flooding social media with spoilers using #SpiderManNoWayHome. And that’s why #DeletingTwitter is trending now.

Ben Affleck did himself zero favors when he went on Howard Stern and basically blamed Jennifer Garner for him alcoholism. In fact, Ben said he would probably still be drinking if he was married to Jennifer because he felt “trapped” in the marriage. He said, “I was like ‘I can’t leave ’cause of my kids, but I’m not happy, what do I do?’ What I did was drink a bottle of scotch and fall asleep on the couch, which turned out not to be the solution.” Ben is now being slammed by everyone on social media — and me! — for blaming Jennifer. After he left, Jennifer was the one who picked Ben up and took him for one last run to Jack in the Box before she checked him into rehab. She’s a SAINT! And people are coming for Ben on Twitter. In addition to a lot of name-calling, one person tweeted, “You blame your ex wife for drinking? You were a drunk before you married her!” Another posted, “Even if that’s the case about unhappiness in your marriage why would you drag your ex through the mud publicly and seemingly blame that situation for your own self destructive choices.”
