Harvey Weinstein Is Finally Facing Life in Prison.
The disgraced film producer was indicted on three additional felony sex charges on Monday. According to Variety, the indictment states that Weinstein is accused of forcibly performing oral sex on a woman in 2006. He was already facing three other sex crime charges involving two other women.
“Weinstein was indicted on one count of criminal sexual act in the first degree, and two counts of predatory sexual assault,” Variety adds. “The latter charges are used to prosecute perpetrators of multiple felony sexual assaults. They are Class A-II felonies, the most serious charges that Weinstein faces, and they carry a potential sentence of 10 years to life in prison.”
Joe Jackson Has Been Laid to Rest.
Janet Jackson, her son Eissa and more were all in attendance at Joe Jackson’s private funeral on Monday. Joe, who died battling pancreatic cancer on Wednesday (June 27), was memorialized at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, California—the same cemetery that Michael Jackson was buried in, the Associated Press reports.
Shortly after Joe’s death, the Jackson family released the following statement, shared by PEOPLE:
“We want to thank you all for the support you have shown us as we grieve for the patriarch of our family. We mourn the loss of our father and celebrate the life of a man who sacrificed so much to give us the life and success we have today. Thank you for respecting our privacy during this time.”
YOU May Have Enjoyed Drake’s “Don’t Matter To Me,” But MJ’s Nephew Didn’t.
Michael Jackson’s nephew, Austin Brown, is not at all here for Drake sampling his uncle’s unreleased music.
“I’m not okay with it,” the son of Rebbie Jackson recently told TMZ. And while he acknowledges respect for Drake, he just doesn’t feel he had a right to touch the legend’s unreleased material.
He continued, “I just feel like, if he didn’t finish it, than you shouldn’t use it. I respect the artist but I just don’t feel like it’s OK to use someone’s vocals… and change them.”
