Charges Against Jussie Smollett Have Been Dropped

A new viral sensation… Justin Bieber is defending his wife… J-Lo & A-Rod update… Wendy Williams started drinking again… and All criminal charges against Jussie Smollett have been dropped

The other day, a conservative writer named Denise McAllister tweeted, “Can someone explain to me the purpose of The View? It seems to me to be a roundtable of delusional mental midgets ricocheting ignorance and lack of emotional regulation.” One of those “delusional mental midgets” Meghan McCain tweeted back, “You were at my wedding Denise….” And thus, another viral sensation is born! It’s already being used for tons of memes as the ultimate response to someone who does you wrong.

Justin Bieber is defending his wife from one troll who basically represents ALL the trolls who go after Hailey on social media. This person created an account just to hate on Hailey. @jaileyisajoke commented on a photo Justin took of his wife, “You are NOT in love with Hailey! You only married her to get back at Selena…Plus Hailey sleeps with men like @shawnmendes for fame and she’s racist.” Justin took a screenshot of that comment, posted it on his IG stories and told his fans, “Stop sending hailey and I these messeges (sic) if you love me screenshot this and repost everywhere.” He told @jaileyisajoke, “ur immature the fact that you have an account dedicated to dissing my wife and I is absolutely absurd why would I dedicated my whole life to someone in marriage to get back and my ex…Anyone who believes this is mean spirited or 10 years old or younger because a logical person doesn’t talk or think this way u should be ashamed of yourself really…” Justin went on to say, “I absolutely loved and love Selena she will always hold a place in my heart, but I am head over heals (sic) In love with my wife and she is the absolutely the BEST THING that has ever happened to me period.” Moving forward, Justin said he will ignore all the hateful messages he receives.

Just a couple months before he proposed to Jennifer Lopez, a former Playboy Playmate turned porn star named Zoe Gregory called out Alex Rodriguez for sexting her. Zoe said it started the day after Christmas and lasted for about a month before he just stopped communicating. Zoe feels like Jennifer has the right to know what’s up and that if JLo wants proof, she is happy to provide it. But it looks like Jennifer ain’t interested in any of that! The day after Zoe made these shocking claims, Alex visited Jennifer on the set of her new movie “Hustlers,” and they were acting like a couple very much in love.

On her way into work Monday, Wendy Williams was photographed without her wedding ring, but she slipped it back on before she had to do her talk show. But after work that day, the Daily Mail reported that Wendy went back to the sober house, checked herself out, went straight to a bar and started drinking. Reportedly, she couldn’t handle the news that her husband Kevin’s mistress had delivered their daughter. Somehow, word got back to the studio and some of Wendy’s staff found her drunk at a bar. She was taken to the hospital and given a bag of fluids to help her sober up. One source said Wendy was in really bad shape and people were amazed that she actually made it in to the studio to do her show on Tuesday. Another source told the Daily Mail that Wendy is finally considering divorcing Kevin. The source said she knew about the mistress but didn’t think there would ever be a baby. The source said, “She didn’t think Kevin would go this far.”

All criminal charges against Jussie Smollett have been dropped and the evidence against him has been sealed by a judge. However, the FBI and the US Postal Service are still investigating whether or not Jussie sent himself a threatening letter to the “Empire” set, so he could still face federal charges. While many people say the criminal charges being dropped prove Jussie is innocent of staging a hate crime against himself, that’s not the case. Basically, the State’s Attorney’s Office said that because Jussie doesn’t have a criminal record…because he forfeited his $10K bond…and because he did 18 hours of community service work at Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow Push Coalition, which included stuffing envelopes, working in the bookstore and giving them advice on their Saturday broadcast…they decided to drop the charges. But the prosecutor said he still believes Jussie is guilty. So does Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel. He condemned the State’s Attorney’s office, saying this decision “sends a clear message that if you’re a position of influence and power you’ll get treated one way, other people will get treated another way. There is no accountability, then, in the system.” Police superintendent Eddie Johnson said, “Do I think justice was served? No….I’ve heard that they wanted their day in court with TV cameras so America could know the truth. But no, they chose to hide behind secrecy and broker a deal to circumvent the judicial system.”
