Fans give three cheers for Swift

Celebrity Taylor Swift has millions of fans, but it’s safe to say David Mueller is not one of them.

This past week, Swift has been defending allegations in a Denver courtroom that the former DJ touched her inappropriately at a meet-and-greet event in 2013. After the photo shoot that evening, Swift reportedly complained to security personnel and family that Mueller, who posed for the picture with Swift and his girlfriend Shannon Melcher, intentionally reached under her skirt and grabbed her rear end. At the time of the incident Swift was 23 and Mueller was 51. Taylor Swift’s team told Mueller’s employer, KYGO, about the misconduct, which resulted in his termination two days later. Read more

Head games

Former NFL football players who have suffered from neurological damage and head injuries foresee an approaching resolution to the six-year-long legal battle against the NFL.

In 2015, after extensive negotiations, a federal judge removed the limit of $765 million to leave room for a potentially higher payout. The family members of those whom have since passed away as a result of chronic head damage may also benefit from this lawsuit. Read more

Implants show that looks can kill

The US Food and Drug Commission regulates products based on safety and health caution.  Various recalled products may include food, cosmetics, automotive devices, among others. One of the more recent concerns documented by the FDA is the effect textured implants have on women. Those whom have had to undergo breast cancer treatment and elected to receive reconstructive surgery, for implants with a textured surface, have suffered from prolonged complications. A life-threatening effect is anaplastic large-cell lymphoma, which is a rare form of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. While the FDA recognized a correlation between the textured implants and lymphoma in 2011, the implants were not recalled. Read more

Talk about a Tidal wave

Kanye West is always in the tabloid and music headlines, but a recent lawsuit is truly making him Famous. Citing “deceptive conduct”, a class action lawsuit was filed against the Chicago rapper over his latest album release. “The Life of Pablo” was exclusively released on music streaming service Tidal in early 2016. Since then, Kanye has remixed and reworked some of the album’s tracks and re-released them; however the Tidal version is still the original “incomplete” version. Later on, the album was released across all music services (iTunes, Google Play, Spotify, etc). The class action lawsuit claims that West duped fans by selling the idea that the album would only be available via Tidal. Read More
