A civil lawsuit was filed in Arizona federal court yesterday accusing Sting of sexually assaulting a minor more than 40 years ago. “Jane Doe” claims that on May 14, 1979, she met the Police at a record store meet-and-greet before their concert that night in Tempe. She claims she told Sting she was 15, but he invited her to a house party after the concert. He would’ve been 27 at the time. At the party, the woman claims Sting began kissing and fondling her, and she reminded him that she was 15 and a virgin. But then he took her to his hotel room, which is where she claims the assault took place. Afterward, she claims Sting put her in a cab and sent her home, and she never heard from him again. But over the next year, she told her closest friends and some family members about it, and then shared her story with several therapists over the years. She’s asking for a trial by jury and requesting $75K in damages. Through his attorney, Sting “categorically denies” these claims. The statement said, “Sting, who has not been served with a complaint, does not know who this person is. The first any of us heard about these allegations — from 1979 — was when we saw a press release issued by a law firm yesterday. ..Should this case proceed, we intend to vigorously defend it. Sting welcomes a thorough and open inquiry into this matter.”
Last week, there were rumors that Florida Georgia Line were breaking up over political differences. On a podcast yesterday, Tyler Hubbard admitted that he unfollowed Brian Kelley because of his pro Trump Instagram posts, but they aren’t breaking up over it. Tyler said, “Somebody sent me an article two days ago that me and BK were breaking up and I thought, ‘Well, that’s that’s news to me.’ But no… I unfollowed BK for a few days while we were through this political, you know, in the middle of this election and everything going on. And I even called him and told him, I said, ‘Hey buddy, I love you. And I love you a lot more in real life than on your stories right now. So I’m just going to, so that’s why I’m unfollowing you. Nothing personal. I still love you. You’re still my brother.’ I just didn’t want to see it every time I opened Instagram. And so it wasn’t a big deal.”
Lori Loughlin began her 2 months in federal prison a couple weeks ago, and yesterday, her husband Mossimo turned himself in to begin his 5-month sentence in the college admissions bribery scandal. But before he went to prison, Mossimo gave himself a tough-guy prison makeover, complete with bald head and long grey beard. I have to admit, he did look kinda scary…
Charli D’Amelio is the most followed person on TikTok with 98.5M followers. But she lost over a million followers after a dinner party gone wrong. Charli, her sister Dixie and their parents invited James Charles to dinner and posted it online. Fans didn’t like it that Charli wasn’t happy with just 98.5M followers and was shooting for 100M. But what made them really mad was the way Charli and Dixie acted toward their personal chef, who’d just served them a dinner of seafood paella. Charli asked if she could have dino nuggets instead and Dixie literally threw up when she found out there were snails in the paella. Later, Dixie posted a video explaining that the snail thing was a setup to get her to react that way, but Charli was in tears saying she’d been receiving messages encouraging her to kill herself. James Charles tweeted his support, saying, “100M followers in one year & y’all expect her to know how to be a perfect role model? death threats because she’s a picky eater & made a joke about a milestone? 30+ year olds dragging someone half their age?” And the chef who made the paella said the whole snail thing has been overblown and he’s not upset with the girls so why should anyone else be?
Charli D’Amelio took to her IG Live to address negativity and backlash over a misunderstanding regarding her family’s chef.

Political commentator Hugh Hewitt asked Matthew McConaughey if he would ever consider running for governor of Texas, and Matthew didn’t say no! He said, “I don’t know. I mean, that wouldn’t be up to me. It would be up to the people more than it would me.” Matthew said, “Look, politics seems to be a broken business to me right now. And when politics redefines its purpose, I could be a hell of a lot more interested.” Matthew said that US citizens are divided and “don’t trust each other,” adding that he wants to “re-bind our social contracts with each other as Americans. Matthew later told Stephen Colbert that while he has no plans to run for any office right now, that could change with time.
