“Transformers” director Michael Bay attacked on set:
“Transformers 4: Age of Distinction”, starring Mark Wahlberg, is currently being filmed in Hong Kong. The saying goes that “everything is about location, location, location.”
Some parts of the movie have also been filmed in Arizona, Utah, Texas, Michigan, Illinois and Washington.
But, if some of the reports are true, Director Michael Bay got more than he bargained for when he decided to film next to a shop owned by two brothers. The brothers demanded money from Bay, who declined. Bay and three police officers were battered by the men, who were arrested for blackmail and assault.
Could it be that the shop owners believed that they should be compensated for infringement of space being utilized by Bay and the filming crew?
(Note: Other reports have that there were three attackers and that the initial assailant was under the influence of narcotics substances.)
Florida’s Franklin Correctional Institution erroneously released two murderers, requesting public’s assistance to get them back behind bars:
Florida’s Franklin Correctional Institution (FCI) erroneously released two murderers, requesting public’s assistance to get them back behind bars.
The two prisoners were released by FCI but are technically being categorized as “escapees”. Not much is being said about the error to release them outside of the fact that there were fraudulent modifications made to court orders.
Be on the look out for Charles Walker, age 34, (who should be serving 15 years for murder) and Joseph Jenkins, also age 34, (who should be serving 50 years for murder and armed robbery). These individuals committed these crimes separately and were released separately. Both, however, were previous residents of the Orange County Florida area and are believed, by authorities, to have returned.

Mother dies of breast cancer one day after marrying off all three of her daughters:
The special day was planned for Oct. 26, 2013 to marry off her three daughters…yes three brides… but the date had to be bumped up to be sure that she would be around to attend. On Oct. 13, 2013 sisters Jodie, Sarah and Kaylee Swales were escorted down the aisle by their father, Otis Swales, while their mother, Becky Swales on-looked from the front pew. It was a bittersweet day, but the next day reassured them all that they had done the right thing. On Oct. 14, 2013 Becky Swale passed away of breast cancer.
The sisters, who reside in Georgia, plan to have their wedding reception on the original date of Oct. 26, 2013, in Ohio.
Producer Timbaland’s wife, Monique Mosley, files for divorce :
Monique Mosley is seeking divorce from producer Timbaland.
The couple has a five year old daughter together and Mosley has a 10-year-old daughter that Timbaland has been raising as his own. Mosley is seeking child support for both children.
Mosley is also asking for "rehabilitative alimony", also knows as money to establish herself post-relationship, and “permanent alimony”, money to maintain herself in the stead that she has been accustomed to living while with Timbaland for the last 10 years (married for five), off of his estimated $80 million worth.
Do you think that Timbaland should be required to pay for Mosley to get herself together sans Timbaland? What are your thoughts on child support for the older child?
With so much talk going on about what Mosley wants, does anybody think it strange that nobody has any information on why she is requesting a divorce?
