ANTM contestent Bello Sanchez says he was raped in Paris and police refused to investigate


You might remember Bello Sanchez from the last Tyra hosted cycle of America's Next Top Model. If you don't I can't say that I blame you, the show was on its last breath at that point (as we all know Tyra then quit and the show was moved to VH1 where it was given ~Rita~ as a new host) but for a bit of a refresher he was a contestant in the final boys vs girls cycle who didn't really stand out in either direction and his biggest claim to fame was pretending that his eye color was natural.

Sanchez is now back in the news after posting the above video where he states that he was raped in a bathroom stall at Le Rogue nightclub back on January 30th. He claims that the police basically shrugged off the attack and did nothing to investigate it.

"Paris is so easy to find someone," he said. "All the buildings are the same color. There's not really a lot of places you can hide at."

He continued by saying the police never questioned the security guards. They also did not perform a rape kit on him until 72 hours after the fact and only after intervention from an advocacy group.

"I do think that if I was a little blonde white girl in Paris saying that that happened to me, I think things would have been different yeah," he continued. "I think that would have completely been different. I think my skin tone, my gender, my sexuality, how I look, I think all those things have something to do with why I was not given the proper respect."

Don Cheadle accuses FAUXTUS of extraordinary 'racist, misogynistic' golf course slur







- Don Cheadle's hate for FAUXTUS is well documented. In a series of tweets last night, he revealed some pretty disgusting things FAUXTUS has said before he took office.

- Don isn't revealing the name of the man who had this encounter with FAUXTUS as his daughter is a celebrity. He didn't mention any of this while FAUXTUS was campaigning because he didn't think it would make a difference. Don then goes on to say that many know that this is his true nature. This story coming out would've changed little.

- This incident took place in Doral, FL during a mixed professional and amateur golf contest.

Adele is married!



The British singer had people speculating when she referred to partner Simon Konecki as her "husband" during her Grammy speech.

She confirmed the news during a concert in Australia:

"I was trying to remember how it was I felt at the beginning of the relationship that inspired that record because as bad as a break up can be, as bitter and horrible and messy as it can be, that feeling when you first fall for someone is the best feeling on earth, and I am addicted to that feeling.

Obviously I can’t go through with those feelings because I’m married now. I’ve found my next person”


Konecki and Adele reportedly met and began dating in mid to late 2011. She announced she was pregnant with their child in June 2012 and gave birth to son Angelo in October 2012.

LOL @ Alia! Maybe she nursed hopes that he'd adopt her? I'm not a big fan of surrogacy but congrats to Karan. He has wanted this for a long time and I'm sure he will be a good parent. This is pretty huge for a celeb who is semi-out to become a parent...

US Soccer has a new policy - players must stand for the national anthem




- After Megan Rapinoe refused to stand for the national anthem, to show her support for Colin Kaepernick and to bring attention to racial inequality, US Soccer released numerous statements and women's head coach flopass Ellis made stupid comments about how they believe the anthem is for troops or whatever.
- US Soccer, being the Trump lovers they are, introduced a new policy - players must stand for the anthem.
- They don't specify what the punishment would be if you don't stand.
- The players were made aware of the new rule on Saturday.

Of the new policy, should-be-fired-coach Ellis said:
“I’ve always felt that that should be what we do, honor the country, have the pride of putting on the national team jersey, I think that should be the expectation. That’s our workplace out there and I think we should represent ourselves and our country, so I’m pleased with that.”
