Jason Derulo didn’t want to marry Jordin Sparks

Jason Derulo and Jordin Sparks recently ended their three-year relationship and no one really understood why. They seemed to really be happy together and worked well… but all good things must come to an end, I suppose. Especially since Jordin really wanted to get married and Jason was feeling pressured and did NOT want to walk down the aisle.

From ABC News:

“Though I think it is a private matter and intended to keep my break-up Jordin personal, due to bogus and irresponsible lies being reported by insensitive media outlets it became necessary for me to comment,” Derulo told ABC News. “I spent three great years with Jordin and she is one of the most amazing people that I have ever met. But as in all relationships there are ups and downs and at this time we have decided to amicably part. Infidelity, cheating or deceit played no part in our relationship or our break-up, and I hope that people respect our privacy as we move forward with our lives.”

From People:

Derulo denied any infidelity or ego problems, but he did admit to host Ryan Seacrest that time apart because of their busy schedules created stress in the relationship.

“It may have weighed on her more than it weighed on me,” Derulo told Seacrest. “She was in [a] frustrated space a lot.”

Though he says expectations and “pressures of marriage” were a point of contention for him, Derulo has no plans on avoiding performing songs like his hit single “Marry Me.”

“I think it’ll be tough to perform a lot of different songs,” said the singer. “But maybe it’ll be special in a different way because that was a huge time in my life.”

Ah, well. At least it seems to actually be amicable with them and they were able to end things maturely (at least so far).

Walmart blames Tracy Morgan for his accident

tracy morgan

Earlier this year, Tracy Morgan was seriously injured in a crash with a Walmart truck, as the driver of said truck had been working too much overtime and was too exhausted behind the wheel. Tracy was in critical condition for a while and has since mostly recovered, but he wants to sue Walmart for the accident and they’re not having it. You see, they say it’s Tracy’s own fault because he wasn’t wearing a seatbelt. Uh… what?

From People:

Morgan – along with his assistant Jeffrey Millea, his wife Krista Millea, and comedian Ardie Fuqua – filed a complaint in the U.S. District Court in New Jersey against the retail giant in July. The lawsuit states that Walmart had its driver working under “unreasonable” conditions – it claims the driver had been awake for over 24 hours and that he fell asleep at the wheel, which caused the collision.

“As a result of Walmart’s gross, reckless, willful, wanton, and intentional conduct, it should be appropriately punished with the imposition of punitive damages,” stated the complaint.

Walmart filed a response to Morgan’s lawsuit on Monday, denying culpability for the accident.

According to legal documents obtained by PEOPLE, the company states that Morgan’s complaint “fails to set forth any facts which are sufficient to support a direct and/or vicarious claim of negligence as to Walmart.” It also states that “the damages about which plaintiffs complain were not proximately caused by any authorized actions by Walmart and/or its employees, agents, servants or representatives.”

Furthermore, it alleges that any injuries that were sustained during the crash “were caused, in whole or in part, by plaintiffs’ failure to properly wear an appropriate available seatbelt restraint device.”

Uh, look – no doubt his injuries were worse because he wasn’t wearing a seatbelt, and EVERYONE should wear a seatbelt when they get in a car. Seriously, fastening my seatbelt is the first thing I do, because seatbelts can and do save lives. However, to say that most of it was Tracy’s fault because he wasn’t wearing a seatbelt? Fuck Walmart, man. Maybe if they weren’t shitty employers who force their workers to nearly kill themselves for minimum wage and barely any benefits, there would be fewer accidents, and, you know, less miserable people in the world.

Also, uh, are they seriously trying to say that Tracy would have had NO injuries (and that the passenger who died wouldn’t have) if they’d all been wearing seatbelts? That they miraculously would have walked away completely unharm despite being slammed into by one of YOUR drivers who fell asleep at the wheel? What kinda world do we live in?

Chris Brown shoves a woman (again)

chris brown

I’m begrudgingly going to give Chris Brown a tiny, miniscule bit of slack on this story. Very, very begrudgingly. You see, Chris shoved a woman pretty hard to move her out of the way after she tried to kiss him. The woman was an overzealous fan who was totally in the wrong and violated his personal space, sure – I get that. However, given Chris’s history with violence and, you know, beating women, you’d have thought he could have let his security handle it – because he did indeed have security around.

From TMZ:

Chris performed at Limelight Houston over the weekend, and while he and Karreuche Tran were walking through the crowd … a woman stepped in front of him and reached out … apparently trying to kiss him. CB gave her a pretty hard shove with his right forearm to move her out of the way.

 

It doesn’t look like the fan was hurt. Obviously, not a smart move for someone with Chris’ track record to mix it up with fans — especially women — even when they start it.

Yep.

I mean, again, this woman was out of line and you should never violate someone else’s space, man or woman… but really, Chris? You take heavies with you EXACTLY for this reason – to remove any issues so that YOU DO NOT GET INVOLVED. Of course, he’ll say this was just an automatic reaction, which kinda proves everyone’s point about him…

P.S. what do you think of the pic of Chris as Guy Fieri? Like, what the hell?
