Brad Pitt Is Allegedly Being Investigated For Child Abuse

Things are getting uglier for Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Their divorce proceedings were announced earlier this week, and naturally, the rumor mill started swirling.

TMZ reported early on Thursday that Pitt is being investigated over allegations of child abuse, saying he got drunk on their private jet the week before and became verbally abusive and physical with the kids on board. A witness told them that even when the plane landed, Pitt was yelling on the tarmac and attempted to leave in a jet fuel truck. They’re also saying that someone at the scene anonymously reported Pitt to the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services.

However, it might just be a rumor (even though riding off in a fuel truck certainly sounds like something a drunk entitled actor would do in a fit). The Daily Mail is reporting that they spoke

Heather Mack, Tommy Schaefer: ‘Snapped Killer Couples’–Spoiled Rich Girl Killed Wealthy Mommy During Bali Vacation

Heather Mack’s story is returning to television. Heather Mack is the spoiled rich girl who killed her mommy while visiting Bali, Indonesia, along with her troubled boyfriend. Tonight, Oxygen Network will recount her terrifying story in an episode of Snapped: Killer Couples. Authorities would agree that Heather Mack and her lover, Tommy Schaefer, fit that description perfectly after killing her rich socialite mother Sheila Von Wiese Mack and packing her dead body in a suitcase. It’s a tale so bizarre and so gruesome that it’s difficult to believe these baby-faced killers could do such a thing.

In 2014, Sheila Von Wiese Mack was desperate to repair her relationship with her 19-year-old daughter, Heather Mack. The mother and daughter were close, but they had a troubled and difficult relationship that would often turn violent. In fact, it became so violent that Sheila Von Wiese Mack’s friends tried to warn her to

Bushwig, Brooklyn’s Biggest Drag Festival, Is Changing The Definition of Drag

What is drag, anyway? We’ve all seen queens strutting their stuff at gay bars or comically feminine cross-dressers in the theater, but as the artform expands and explodes, how do we even define this type of expression? While drag has gained new levels of accessibility with television shows like RuPaul’s Drag Race and social media platforms like Instagram, the performers at this weekend’s Bushwig festival in Brooklyn, New York are challenging the mainstream idea of what a drag queen even is.

Organized by beloved Brooklynite Horrorchata, Bushwig has expanded from a small gathering of underground queer artists into a full two-day festival with over 100 performers. What started in a small backyard venue slowly grew over half a decade. This year, the Wigstock-inspired festival took over The Knockdown Center, a sprawling warehouse art space just on the outskirts of Bushwick, Brooklyn. For the first time, the festival featured a food

Giselle Esteban: ‘Snapped’ Spotlights Ex-Friend Who Lured, Killed California Nurse, Michelle Le

Giselle Esteban, the woman who killed her best friend, Michelle Le, five years ago, will have her story spotlighted for the second time this year on Snapped on the Oxygen Network. This past March, the Inquisitr brought you Giselle Esteban’s story when it aired on Investigation Discovery’s See No Evil. Michelle Le was a missing nursing student who disappeared but was later found murdered. Giselle Esteban is currently serving time for the murder.

Oxygen’s Snapped will recount how Michelle Le, a nursing student at Kaiser Permanente Medical Center, vanished into thin air in May 2011. The young nursing student, who was in class shortly before she disappeared, told her professor that she needed to go out to her car to retrieve some medication. The car was parked inside the hospital’s parking garage. Her worried professor decided to look for her when Michelle Le failed to return.

Classmates and the professor
