BOBBY BROWN ARRESTED
Bobby Brown was just arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence in Los Angeles. Brown was pulled over in Cali around 12:20 pm PST for allegedly driving while talking on his cell phone. The singer is currently sitting in jail waiting to be bailed out.
The details surrounding the arrest are still sketchy as it’s still unclear what substance police speculate Brown was under the influence of while behind the wheel.
This has to be a trying time considering his ex-wife died a month ago and he left her funeral early due to the fact he couldn’t find proper seating for himself and his extended family.
KHLOE KARDASHIAN LEAVES PETA
KHLOE KARDASHIAN is quitting PETA after the flour-bomb attack on her sister KIM. PETA is denying any connection to the animal activist who dumped flour on Kim, but they like what she did. And they’ve offered to pay her legal expenses. That’s not cool with Khloe. It turns out that the flour-bomber is the SISTER of the PETA exec she worked with on her “I’d Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur” campaign. She says, quote, “I’ve been a vocal supporter of PETA for a long time but I have also been very vocal about anti-bullying, so this was a huge disappointment for me. “As you all know, I don’t condone violence and bullying and what happened last Thursday was just that.” Khloe would also like you to know that while she doesn’t wear fur, she’s not going to tell Kim what to do. She says, quote, “[I’m not] going to force my views on anyone else, ESPECIALLY by violating them.”
