Rumors

On Tuesday (Nov. 20), authorities responded to the scene of a house fire in Colts Neck, New Jersey. Upon arrival, they discovered 50-year-old Keith Caneiro with a gunshot wound in the back of his head. Inside, his 45-year-old wife Jennifer and two young children, 11-year-old Jesse and 8-year-old Sophia, lay dead among the flames with stab wounds.The came just hours after Caneiro’s brother, Paul, 51, was dealing with his own house burning down 12 miles away. A neighbor of Paul’s told NJ.com that he was visibly upset hours after the fire at his home was extinguished.“He said, ‘it must’ve been a gas leak.’ He has tears in his eyes. [His wife] Susan was devastated,” the neighbor said. “He said, ‘I’m in complete shock. I can’t believe this is happening to me.”Paul’s reaction would be understandable save for the fact that on Wednesday, Paul was .According to a criminal complaint, Paul set fire to his own house “by using gasoline and igniting the gasoline causing the residence to catch fire while his wife and two daughters were inside.” Paul Caneiro pictured with his family on the left: (L-R) Daughter Katelyn, 26, wife Susan, daughter Marissa. Paul’s mugshot is on the right.Monmouth County Prosecutor Christopher Gramiccioni said at a : “The case has transcended into a multiple homicide investigation in addition to the arson matter. And to date, our investigation has revealed that unfortunately, sadly, each of these individuals were the victims of homicidal violence at some point prior to when the fire was set.”Police are treating the case as an arson and believe the two fires are connected, but it is unclear if Paul is responsible for also burning down his brother’s $1.5 million New Jersey mansion.“it’s important to emphasize that we have no reason to believe that anyone in the community is in any danger at this time,” Gramiccioni said.He continued to mention that, “both of those homes are owned by family members…I’m sure you have questions as to if they are related, and that remains to be seen. But it is an angle that we’re continuing to pursue.”“Just let us do our investigation,” he concluded.The two brothers were business partners at their consulting firm, Square One, as well as a pest control company they ran together. is a post from:

Pusha T performed in Toronto Tuesday night (Nov. 13) at the Danforth Music hall for his “Daytona” tour. While there, he was attacked by concertgoers he later accused of being hired by Drake to sabotage his concert.During Pusha’s set, a group of troublemakers started throwing beer at him while he performed, covering the stage in frothy fluids. In footage captured by audience members and shared on social media, Pusha’s team can be seen fighting off stage rushers, forcing them to retreat.From the looks of it, it seems like the stage rushers were trying to get to Pusha, who was quickly taken backstage amid the commotion.The guys who threw beer at Pusha T got messed up REAL QUICK (via )— Complex (@Complex) GOONS TRY TO ATTACK ??. Everyone tag !!!!!! — True North Views (@TrueNorthViews) Wellllll a brawl broke out at the Pusha T concert, show ended after 40 minutes — Richie Assaly (@rdassaly) , some fans say that after security removed the wannabe assaulters from the stage, Pusha T came back to the stage and fired shots at Drake by performing “I Don’t Like” and “The Story of Adidon.” Pusha then accused the Toronto native of hiring people to cause a scene at his show.Pusha T has a message for Drake in Toronto after Drake’s goons try to jump Pusha T on stage ? — True North Views (@TrueNorthViews) Some eyewitnesses claim that police were eventually called and the event was reportedly shut down just 40 minutes after it started.Back in September, leading us all to believe that their longtime beef was squashed.

Sean “Diddy” Combs has a HUGE family—a total of six children, including Kim Porter’s oldest son Quincy, who isn’t biologically his, but he helped raise him as if he were his own.Diddy has a strong bond with all three of the women who are his children’s mothers—the late Kim Porter, Misa Hylton-Brim and Sarah Chapman—and not only that, but the women also have strong bonds with each other.RELATED: Fans have admired and respected the co-parenting relationship Diddy has with the women of his life, and after the sudden passing of Kim Porter, all of the social media tributes from everyone further proves just how close they all are as a blended family.On Sunday (Nov. 18), Misa Hylton-Brim, the mother of Diddy’s first-born son Justin Combs, took to Instagram to pen a touching message to the woman who she raised her children with for the past two decades. In her IG gallery, she included three photos of Kim, including one with her and all of their children.Misa not only thanked Kim for being a second mother to her Justin, but for also accepting her younger children (who are not Diddy’s) as well. She also shared her reaction to Porter’s death, describing it as one of the “most shocking and painful experiences” she’s ever been through and a “devastating loss” to the family.Alongside a beautiful black and white photo of Porter, Hylton-Brim wrote: “For the last 20 years we have raised our children together, my mind cannot begin to wrap around the fact that you are not going to be here. Thank you for being a 2nd mother to Justin and for loving Niko and Madison just the same. This is one of the most shocking and painful experiences that I have ever been through. A devastating loss to our family.”Misa went on to describe a recent conversation the two shared about the kids and “how proud we were of them all.”She said: “We spoke about their futures and how we could come together to support them in business. That was a very special conversation. But you were cool like that, and that is what I will miss the most. Our inside jokes and the fact that we shared an unspoken understanding around what it was like to raise our children in this life.”Misa also vowed to be a pillar of support for all four of Kim’s children, saying that she’ll continue to love them as though they were her own. “I promise to love and protect Quincy, Chris, D’lila and Jessie. I will always be here for them,” she wrote. “Rest in Power Beautiful Queen #familyForever.”Justin also wrote a beautiful message to the woman he considered his “second mom.” The 24-year-old recalled how they had recently spent time together as a family, noting how quickly life can change.Justin also thanked Kim for accepting him as his own, adding that he would “forever cherish all the special moments and talks” they had together. Read his message in full below:“This can’t be real I keep waking up hoping this is all a bad dream.. I just don’t understand. The other day we were all together dancing & celebrating! My second mother, thank you for loving & accepting me as one of your own I will forever cherish all the special moments and talks we had together please stay close with us and let us hear your voice to guide us. @quincy @kingcombs Jessie & D’lilah I got yall forever!”Justin’s sister (and Misa’s daughter) Madison also took to Instagram to share a heartfelt to her “Aunt Kim,” thanking her for opening her home to hear and treating her and her brothers like “one of [her] own.” She also thanked her for giving her her “best friends” (Christian, Quincy, D’Lila and Jessie) and for “embodying love, beautify and grace.” You can read Madison’s message in its entirety below:“I think shock and saddened are the only words that come to mind in this moment when looking to describe how we all feel. Wow.. Aunt Kim, thank you for opening not only your home but your heart to Justin, Niko and I.. Thank you for treating us like one of your own, thank you for always reminding me that I looked, acted and sounded ‘JUST like Misa’.. and most importantly thank you for giving me my best friends.. my siblings & for making me a big sister of not one but two beautiful, smart and loving girls. We all miss you and love you and still really cannot believe that you are gone. Thank you for embodying love, light, beauty and grace.. wow.. Rest In Peace Aunt Kim… my heart is so heavy.”Diddy honored the mother of his children with a private memorial service at his mansion in Bel-Air. The service was attended by close family and friends, including French Montana, Pharrell and Mary J. Blige., the house was filled with photos of Porter and the family, and a candlelit walkway lined the entrance as guests arrived. is a post from:

Kim Porter’s family has finally broken their silence on her sudden and untimely death.Sean “Diddy” Combs, who fathered three children with Porter, addressed her tragic death for the first time with a touching video and message on social media.The video shows him and Kim doing a maternity photo shoot with Essence magazine in December 2006 when Kim was pregnant with their twin daughters D’Lilah Star and Jessie James.The hip-hop mogul captioned the video with a somber message that read: “For the last three days I’ve been trying to wake up out of this nightmare. But I haven’t. I don’t know what I’m going to do without you baby. I miss you so much.”Diddy continued: “Today I’m going to pay tribute to you, I’m going to try and find the words to explain our unexplainable relationship. We were more than best friends, we were more than soulmates. WE WERE SOME OTHER SH*T!! And I miss you so much. Super Black Love”Kim and Diddy dated off and on for 13 years before breaking up for good in 2007, however, they remained close friends for the sake of their three children together—Christian Combs (born in 1998) and twin daughters D’Lilah Star and Jessie James (2006). Diddy also took in Kim’s oldest son, Quincy Brown (from her relationship with Al B. Sure), as his own son at a young age.Quincy also posted a message on Instagram about his late mother, saying: “I am broken…& the only thing that makes sense right now is that you were way too good for this silly world we live in. I love you so much MOMMY. Please give Mee-Maw the biggest hug and kiss for me.”Quincy’s biological father, Kim’s first baby daddy, also paid tribute to Kim on Instagram by sharing a throwback photo and a short message: a broken heart emoji and the hashtag “#ForeverMyLady.”Kim was found dead at her home Thursday (Nov. 15) from complications stemming from either pneumonia or the flu. While officials told the media they don’t suspect foul play, the Los Angeles Coroner has called for an “additional investigation” into Porter’s death at age 47. is a post from:

Sean “Diddy” Combs is heartbroken over the , his ex-girlfriend and mother their four children, .“Diddy is devastated and shocked,” a source told the magazine. “He and Kim were still very close friends and co-parents even though their romantic relationship didn’t work.”RELATED: Though Diddy and Kim Porter haven’t been together romantically in over a decade, the two of them remained close friends and co-parented four children together.“They were still a family,” the source added.RELATED: A separate source that Diddy is “inconsolable” and Kim’s untimely passing has “turned his life upside down.” The source continued, saying of Porter: “She was someone who motivated others to be a better version of themselves. She was a ray of sunshine.”Porter, a former model and actress, was found dead in her home on Thursday. She was just 47 years old.According to TMZ, Kim went to bed early Wednesday night because she wasn’t feeling well, and when family members went to her house to wake her up Thursday, she was unresponsive. Police were called to her house around noon and she was pronounced dead at the scene.Though her official cause of death is still undetermined, according to an shared by TMZ, the call came in as a cardiac arrest. While it’s still unclear what ultimately caused Porter’s death, a source told the gossip site that she had been suffering flu-like symptoms, possibly pneumonia, for the past several weeks.At the time of her death, she was being treated with Saline and vitamins, law enforcement sources said. Authorities are also reportedly looking at a recent trip she took to Africa to find out whether she contracted a disease while abroad. A coroner will conduct an autopsy and perform toxicology tests in the coming days.Kim and Diddy began dating in 1994, and in 1998, the couple welcomed their first child together—son Christian Casey Combs. IN 2006, Porter gave birth to twin girls, D’Lila Star and Jessie James Combs.Porter was also mother to a 27-year-old son, Quincy Brown, from her previously relationship with 90’s singer Al B. Sure, and Quincy was also considered Diddy’s son. There are rumors that Diddy even adopted Quincy at some point, though he kept his biological father’s last name.Porter and Combs dated off and on for 13 years before finally calling it quits in 2007, the year after she gave birth to their twin daughters, after he confessed to her that he had fathered another child—his daughter Chance Combs—with another woman while Porter was pregnant. Chance was born five months before the twins.Despite Combs’ infidelity, he and Porter were able to fix their relationship and remained close friends and co-parents for the sake of their children.Us Weekly’s source said: “Kim and Diddy didn’t always see eye-to-eye on things, but their love for their children and the deep respect they had for each other trumped any issue they had. They were on very good terms in recent years. She was a ‘ride or die’ and very loyal to Diddy.”A TMZ report also between Combs and Porter:Sources close to Diddy say he never stopped interacting with Kim, despite breaking up way back in 2007. We’re told their connection went beyond the fact they were co-parenting 3 kids … they genuinely had love and affection for each other.They celebrated holidays as a family, vacationed together and just hung out … and there was never an extended period where they were at odds with each other.Perhaps the most telling example of their ongoing union … they never had a formal custody agreement. They accommodated each other’s schedules when it came to the kids — and it always worked.Diddy also has a son, 24-year-old Justin Combs, with his high school sweetheart, Misa Hylton-Brim, and Us Weekly’s source said Porter treated both Justin and Chance like her own.“Kim treated all of Diddy’s children like her own — not just the ones they shared — which makes the situation even more devastating,” the insider said. “Diddy values family over everything in his life. He sees his children as an extension of himself. [They are] his proudest achievement, and he has deep connections to them individually.”Combs previously told People of his exes (including Porter): “I’ve been truly blessed to have some great, incredible relationships that have afforded me these children by these very strong, intelligent, beautiful black women. The mothers of my children [are] my best friends. My hat goes off to them”Porter told Essence in a separate interview of her relationship with Combs: “You know how when two people go their separate ways, most of the time there’s animosity? It’s not like that with us. Sean and I have this bond, this friendship…”She continued: “I’m the person he can tell his inner-most thoughts to and he’s that person for me. He still calls me everyday and we talk. There’s no ill feeling or ‘I can’t stand you, I hate you, don’t call.’ There’s none of that. We have children together so that’s just not an option. We’re committed to our children even if we couldn’t commit to each other.” is a post from:

Carmelo Anthony’s brief stint with the Houston Rockets is officially over, the team confirmed Thursday (Nov. 15).Anthony, a 10-time All-Star forward, will part ways with the team after only playing 10 of 13 regular season games.“After much internal discussion, the Rockets will be parting ways with Carmelo Anthony and we are working toward a resolution,” Rockets general manager Daryl Morey said in a statement. “Carmelo had a tremendous approach during his time with the Rockets and accepted every role head coach Mike D’Antoni gave him. The fit we envisioned when Carmelo chose to sign with the Rockets has not materialized, therefore we thought it was best to move on as any other outcome would have been unfair to him.”The news was first reported by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski:Carmelo Anthony’s brief stop with the Houston Rockets is over, league sources tell ESPN. Anthony will part ways with team, although there are no immediate plans to place 10-time All-Star on waivers. Team announcement is expected before Rockets play Golden State tonight.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) Anthony, 34, will remain on the Rockets roster for now, but will not rejoin the team, sources said. “Anthony’s wisest course of action could be exercising patience and allowing changes in league rosters – through trades, injuries, team needs — to create more playing options for him,” Wojnarowski reported.According to ESPN, the Rockets have no plans to immediately waive Anthony and will continue to allow his reps to survey the marketplace for a new team, which has been an ongoing process in recent days.Because he signed as a free agent with the Rockets this summer, Anthony isn’t eligible to be traded until after the December 15th trade restriction, so any potential deal with a new team would be at least a month (or more) away.:Anthony, 34, left the team last Friday, after the Rockets decided that his role would be minimized and no longer considered him as a part of their plans. D’Antoni has assigned much of Anthony’s playing time to rookie Gary Clark. Anthony had been hopeful to continue with the Rockets, with whom he signed over the summer for the chance to compete for a title.D’Antoni and Morey have both emphasized that Anthony has fulfilled every obligation and responsibility asked of him since joining the team.“In the summer, we tried to hit a home run. It didn’t work out,” D’Antoni said Thursday. “He tried everything he could. He was great while he was here. It just didn’t work out for whatever reason. I just thank him for his professionalism. It was good, he tried everything we could to make it work. It just didn’t work out.”Anthony came off the bench in eight of his 10 games with the Rockets after starting every game of his career until this season.Asked what was different about Anthony’s role than was initially envisioned, D’Antoni said: “We just had to see how things worked out. It wasn’t conducive to his game.“He was trying to make the necessary sacrifices, and it wasn’t fair to him as a Hall of Fame player to play in a role that wasn’t good for him,” the coach said. “… We did it, we tried it, both parties wanted it to happen, and it didn’t happen. Now we’re moving on.” is a post from:

Sean Combs is the person whom I look up to and appreciate as a father. He is the one who [helped] mold me into the person I am today and [I] will always try to live up to his expectations. He has always been supportive of me and I will forever love and respect him.“As far as my biological father goes, the ‘spitting image’ is all I have taken from him.

When I was younger, I didn’t take it as serious because it was just something that was a part of my life. I didn’t know how great it was to have a clothing line like this. But now, to look back on it and to see all the campaigns I used to do and the history that I was a part of… it’s super dope.”In addition to his modeling career, Combs has also released music via his famous father’s record label, Bad Boy Records.

At the conclusion of the 2018-2019 NBA season, Kevin Durant is expected to opt out of his contract next summer and become a free agent.Earlier this week, he got into a pretty bad verbal altercation with teammate Draymond Green during and after Monday night’s (Nov. 12) overtime loss to the L.A. Clippers. Now, at least one of Durant’s teammates are saying that he probably won’t be coming back next season.We’re sure you’re already aware of went down, but in case you’re not or need a refresher, here’s a quick recap:Draymond Green fudged up the final possession of regulation against the Clippers Monday night by choosing not to pass Durant the ball, instead trying to do it all himself and fumbling the ball away, causing the Warriors to not get a shot off, which could have put them up at least 2-3 points over the Clippers and they would have won the game (instead of going into OT).Before OT, Kevin and Draymond yelled at each other, with their fellow teammates trying to act as mediators. After the game, which ended in a 121-116 loss (their second defeat in the last three games), Green’s teammates loudly confronted him for his decision-making on the final play of regulation in what was described as one of the most intense exchanges of the Golden State Era.At one point, Green also reportedly called Durant a “bitch” and is said to have challenged him about his impending free agency, saying that Durant was making the season about himself with how he’s handled the situation.Now, with that said, you may be asking yourself, where does that leave the Warriors? Apparently, they aren’t in a good space, as one anonymous teammate :“With what was said, there is already no way Durant is coming back. The only hope is that they can say this summer, ‘See, KD. We’ve got your back. We protected you from Draymond.'”Which explains why the in last night’s game against home game the Hawks, instead of simply fining him. The Warriors wanted Draymond to be punished publicly, not just internally, to show KD they have his back.For what it’s worth, this is far from the first time Kevin Durant and Draymond Green have had on-court issues. Green in a January 2017 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies, and the two got into another back-and-forth a month later in a Green was also in Game 7 against the Rockets—even though the turnover was his fault.Durant has said before that he doesn’t get mad with Green when he acts like this, so the latest exchange likely won’t lead to any long-standing chemistry issues with the (currently) best team in the league for two straight seasons.Hopefully, everyone on the team is at least professional enough to put all of this aside so that they can bring home their fourth championship trophy in the past five seasons (their third straight).The real challenge at this point, though, would be for Steve Kerr and everyone else to remain focused and keep their eyes on the prize—the coveted Larry O’Brien trophy—and not all the distractions. So, if they’re smart (which, they are, despite their internal beefs) they will keep downplaying what happened, like Coach Kerr:"Nobody ever talks about Kevin's free agency."– Coach Kerr on if KD's upcoming free agency has affected the locker room. — Warriors on NBCS (@NBCSWarriors) is a post from:

El Chapo’s long-awaited trial kicked off Tuesday (Nov. 13) in federal district court in New York, but it was briefly delayed due to an “anxious and upset” juror who brought a doctor’s note to court in an effort to help get her removed from the case.The woman, identified only as juror No. 1, came to court with a doctor’s note saying she couldn’t serve on the trial, which could last up to three to four months, the judge said.“I got a handwritten letter which details medical issues that have been brought about by her selection,” Brooklyn federal Judge Brian Cogan told lawyers. “This person has been anxious and upset since selection … If I were to ask further questions, it will result in a breakdown and crying.”Juror No. 1 reportedly burst into tears last Wednesday (Nov. 7) after finding out she was among the seven women and five men selected as jurors in the trial for Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman—the notorious leader of the dangerous Sinaloa drug cartel.At the time, Judge Cogan refused to let her off, saying he didn’t see any “real hardship there.” He added, “My concern is that if one gets off with a few tears, we’re going to have a trail of tears.”Well, thanks to juror No. 1’s well-timed doctor’s note, she was dismissed from the case. Instead of replacing her with one of the six alternates, lawyers on both sides agreed to select a fresh juror, which they did Tuesday morning.Coincidentally (or not), a second juror later complained that he would lose out on income if he continued to serve, even though he’s unemployed. Like juror No. 1, the man was eventually dismissed from the case as well. Several others have expressed fear about serving on the jury.For what it’s worth, El Chapo has (including jurors) from the federal trial, his lawyer said earlier this year.61-year-old Guzman, dressed in a blue suit and tie, reportedly waved to his beauty queen wife, Emma Aispuro, who smiled back in the heavily secured courtroom. He shook hands with each of his attorneys and also gave a slight wave to the judge before taking his seat.In opening statements before jurors, Assistant U.S. Attorney Adam Fels described Guzman as a man who went from small-town drug dealer to a kingpin capable of turning $10 million cocaine deals.Fels accused Guzman of having an army of hundreds of men with assault rifles in Mexico and alleged that Guzman himself had a monogrammed diamond-encrusted handgun and a gold-plated rifle. “Guzman himself pulled the trigger and ordered the disposal of bodies,” Fels said. “Money. Drugs. Murder. … That is what this case is about.”Guzman’s defense attorney Jeffrey Lichtman said Guzman spent significant time behind bars in Mexican prisons, and the flow of drugs into the United States never slowed down. “Yet, he’s blamed for being the leader. The truth is, he was the leader of nothing,” Lichtman said.Guzman’s multiple escapes from Mexican prisons further fueled the myth that he was a dangerous drug cartel boss, Lichtman said. “A conviction of Guzman is the biggest prize the prosecution could have dreamed of,” he told the jurors. “They claim he is the biggest drug dealer in the world. It’s false.”Guzman, who has been held in solitary confinement since his extradition to the United States early last year, has pleaded not guilty to charges that he collected a multi-billion-dollar fortune smuggling tons of cocaine and other drugs in a vast supply chain that reached well north of the Mexican-United States border.If convicted, El Chapo could spend the rest of his life in prison.Sources: , , is a post from:

After a winning week in college football, the Top 10 CFP (College Football Playoff) Rankings remained unchanged in Tuesday’s release of the third list. This is the first time in the history of the rankings that has happened.Alabama (10-0), Clemson (10-0), Notre Dame (10-0) and Michigan (9-1) kept their spots in the top four, with Georgia (9-1) and Oklahoma (9-1) keeping their positions on the list as well at No. 5 and No. 6, respectively. Alabama is the #1 team in the country for the 15th time in 28 rankings, and they, along with Clemson (#2) and Notre Dame (#3), remain undefeated.“These are complete teams,” committee chair Rob Mullens said when asked about the gap between Alabama and Clemson. “We spent a lot of time talking about it. They are both top-10 offenses, top-10 defenses, but at this point, everyone has Alabama one, Clemson two.”LSU (#7), Washington State (#8), West Virginia (#9) and Ohio State (#10) stayed the course as well, rounding out the top 10.:There was shuffle beyond the top 10, with some losses dropping a few teams and knocking out others altogether.But first, those that gained. Undefeated UCF climbed up one spot to No. 11, as did Syracuse to No. 13. Penn State climbed six spots, up to No. 14, after a 22-10 win over Wisconsin.UCF’s No. 11 ranking is the highest for a Group of Five team in the CFP’s history.“You can’t avoid the fact that strength of schedule is an issue when compared to the other teams,” Mullens said of UCF.Iowa State also climbed six spots to No. 16 after its fifth straight win. Texas is No. 15 this week, up three spots.But Washington was the biggest climber, coming in at No. 18 — up from No. 25 last week.Some teams dropped after performances last week: Kentucky slipped from No. 11 to No. 17 after falling to unranked Tennessee, and Florida slipped two spots to No. 15 after a close win against South Carolina. Boston College is No. 20, three spots down from last week, following a 27-7 home loss to Clemson. Another SEC team slipped five spots: Mississippi State, down to No. 21 from No. 16 after a 24-0 shutout loss to the Crimson Tide on Saturday.Utah is back in the rankings at No. 19 while Northwestern made its CFP debut this season as No. 22.Michigan State, NC State, Fresno State and Auburn fell out of the rankings altogether.There was movement among Group of Five teams this week, with Boise State debuting at No. 25 after defeating Fresno State. The Mountain West conference also has representative Utah State at No. 23. And Cincinnati came in at No. 24 this week.At this point, you’re probably wondering what the College Football Playoffs schedule could potentially look like.While nothing has been confirmed—as there are still two weeks left in the season and even though the top 6 teams are VERY good, college football is extremely unpredictable—here’s what the bracket would look like today ():And, unless something changes, this will be the schedule:Saturday, December 29thNoon ET: Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl: No. 12 Syracuse vs. No. 9 West Virginia (Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta)4 p.m. ET: College Football Playoff semifinal at the Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic: No. 4 Michigan vs. No. 1 Alabama (AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas)8 p.m. ET: College Football Playoff semifinal at the Capital One Orange Bowl: No. 3 Notre Dame vs. No. 2 Clemson (Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida)Tuesday, January 1st1 p.m. ET: PlayStation Fiesta Bowl: No. 11 UCF vs. No. 7 LSU (State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona)5 p.m. ET: Rose Bowl Game Presented by Northwestern Mutual: No. 8 Washington State vs. No. 10 Ohio State (Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California)8:45 p.m. ET: Allstate Sugar Bowl: No. 6 Oklahoma vs. No. 5 Georgia (Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans)The 2019 College Football Playoff National Championship game will be held on Monday, January 7th at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California.Potential CFP Championship game match-ups include: Alabama vs. Clemson, Alabama vs. Notre Dame, Michigan vs. Clemson or Michigan vs. Notre Dame.Who do you think will be playing in the National Championship? is a post from:

While performing at the Camp Flog Gnaw music festival in Los Angeles Sunday night (Nov. 11), Jaden Smith made a rather interesting announcement.Speaking to the crowd, Jaden said that Tyler the Creator is his “boyfriend.”“I just wanna say Tyler the Creator is the best friend in the world and I love him so f***ing much,” Smith said into the microphone. “And I wanna tell you guys something. I wanna tell you … Tyler doesn’t wanna say, but Tyler’s my motherf***ing boyfriend! And he’s been my motherf***ing boyfriend my whole f***ing life!”Smith added, “Tyler the Creator is my f***ing boyfriend! It’s true!” He concluded: “Tyler the Creator is my f***ing boyfriend. OK? You take anything away from this f***ing show, that’s what you need to take away.”Fans managed to capture Jaden’s speech on film, and in one video, the camera pants to Tyler, who wagged his finder, looked at the crowd and shook his head “no” while laughing.Following the performance, Jaden wrote on Twitter: “Yup @tylerthecreator I Told Everyone You Can’t Deny It Now.”Yup I Told Everyone You Can’t Deny It Now.— Jaden Smith (@officialjaden) After seeing Jaden’s message, Tyler replied: “hahaha you a crazy n***a man.”While Tyler’s reaction seems to suggest Smith was joking, it isn’t clear whether Smith was up to his usual crazy antics or genuinely announcing a romantic relationship.Neither Smith nor Tyler have explicitly labeled their own sexualities, with Smith being known for embracing gender-fluid fashion and Tyler calling himself gay and alluding to “coming out of the closet” on Twitter on multiple occasions.I TRIED TO COME OUT THE DAMN CLOSET LIKE FOUR DAYS AGO AND NO ONE CARED HAHAHHAHAHA— Tyler, The Creator (@tylerthecreator) NOT POSSIBLE, WE'RE BOTH GAY — Tyler, The Creator (@tylerthecreator) CANT SLEEP; IN EUROPE ; BEEN DRAWING STUFF — Tyler, The Creator (@tylerthecreator) Tyler seemed to have confirmed his queerness on his 2017 album “Flower Boy.”On “I Ain’t Got Time!” he rapped: “Next line will have ’em like ‘whoa’ / I’ve been kissing white boys since 2004.” And the whole second verse of “” addresses him basically hiding in the closet. is a post from:

UPDATE (08:47 A.M. ET): False alarm! A malfunctioning water heater that makes a sound similar to gunfire caused active shooter reports at a North Carolina High School Friday morning (Nov. 9).:Commissioner George Brown said a piece of equipment at the school that has been malfunctioning in recent days and it sounds like gunfire when it makes noise. This has been going on for several days and is being investigated as a source. Regardless, officials are taking the situation very seriously to ensure everyone’s safety.Pender County Emergency Director Tom Collins said he also believed a malfunctioning water heater caused a gunfire noise and that the sheriff’s office is expected to hold a news conference soon.“I was sure it was not gunfire over an hour ago,” said Commissioner David Williams, who is also the assistant coach for the varsity football team. “I also coach football there. Lately (during practice), we’ve been hearing a piece of mechanical equipment go ‘bam bam bam.’ It made us the first time we heard it turn around.”Williams said he has heard the sound personally and can understand how someone might hear it and make a report. He thinks it could be a remnant problem from Hurricane Florence, explaining the sound is up high, near the roof line and faces the back of the building.“Obviously I was worried,” Williams said. “My son goes to school there. My daughter just graduated.”Williams believes the law enforcement response was 100 percent correct. There are a lot of kids on campus in the morning for practice.“They did exactly the right thing. Law Enforcement did what they’re supposed to do,” Williams said. “There’s no such thing as an over response.”This is good news, as this would have been the second mass shooting in the United States within 48 hours. Hopefully, they get that water heater fixed ASAP though!ORIGINAL STORY BELOW:Police in Pender County, North Carolina responded to reports of an active shooter at Topsail High School Friday morning (Nov. 9).According to Captain James Rowell with the Pender County Sheriff’s Office, it is still an active shooter scene.

A gunman opened fire on multiple people at a country music bar in Thousand Oaks, California, injuring at least 11 people, including a sheriff’s deputy, and killing several others.Police said “at least 200 people” were inside the venue, which was hosting a “college country night” gathering for students.Ventura County Sheriff’s Sergeant Eric Buschow told reporters on the scene there were “multiple fatalities.” Captain Garo Kuredjian said he could not comment on the status of the victims, however, the number of victims was expected to rise.Among the victims was a Ventura County deputy sheriff, a doorman, a cashier and college students. The lifeless body of a suspected male victim was outside the bar.Captain Kuredjian said the shooter is believed to be dead inside the bar after being fatally shot by deputies who arrived at the scene after gunfire erupted.Kuredjian said there was no immediate threat to the public and homicide investigators are at the scene investigating.The gunman—reportedly dressed in all-black, wearing a trenchcoat, glasses, a baseball cap and a mask covering the bottom part of his face—opened fire at around 11:20 p.m. (2:20 a.m. ET Thursday).One officer was injured when he arrived at the scene with colleagues and “attempted to neutralize the threat,” Capt.

I just started hearing these big pops. Pop, pop, pop. There was probably three or four and I hit the ground. I look up and the security guard was dead. Well, I don’t want to say he was dead, but he was shot. He was down, and the [shooter] had a handgun. He threw in smoke grenades all over the place and he kept firing. I saw him point to the back of the cash register…and he just kept firing. I ran out the front door.”KABC-TV interview with eyewitness whose stepson was inside Borderline bar.KABC live coverage: — Matthew Keys (@MatthewKeysLive) Hedge’s stepfather, Tim, told the news station, “He fired the first shot. I knew it was live. I knew it was real. My son thought it was a joke so I pulled him down and got some cover. I looked up and he was moving to the right. He shot the front doorman, who was just a young man. Then he shot the cashier, just a young girl. Then he started moving to the right. He wasn’t looking at us. Then he went into the office, where all the cash and stuff is. He didn’t say anything at all. He just started shooting.”“I thought it was a joke when the shots started firing. I know people there. I hope everybody’s OK. I don’t know how I didn’t get shot,” John Hedge told KABC.Another witness said: “This maniac came in. Threw in smoke to confuse people and opened fire on the dance floor. He’s taken many young lives.”According to news reports, people were hiding from the shooter in bathrooms and attic spaces in the bar, while others who managed to escape the venue ran to nearby gas stations for medical help.

There are a few people we can’t get a hold of, but in these situations people usually turn off their phones to be safe so I’m not gonna get too worried. A lot of my friends survived Route 91. If they survived that they’ll survive this.”Captain Kuredjian said it’s been a while since shots were fired in the city. He said the area is safe and shootings are a very unusual occurrence.
