Celebrity Gossip Heard All Over The Web

Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Joe and Teresa Giudice Sentenced to Jail for Fraud

It’s official…both Joe and Teresa Giudice are headed to prison. The Real Housewives of New Jersey stars have both been sentenced to jail for bankruptcy, bank, and mortgage fraud charges!

The couple did plead guilty to the charges, and were apologetic for their actions. However, Judge Esther Salas laid down the law, giving them both jail time. The U.S. District Court Judge ruled that Joe would serve 41 months (a little over three years) in prison, have two years of supervised probation, and have to pay $414,588 in restitution while Teresa was given 15 months behind bars. Because she has the lesser time, Teresa will serve her sentence first, and is required to surrender to authorities on January 5, 2015. That way, either Joe or Teresa will be around to take care of their four children. However, it is possible that Joe will be deported back to his home country Italy.

According to Deadline, Joe and Teresa will appear on a special Watch What Happens Live: One-on-One with Teresa and Joe with Andy Cohen on Bravo on October 6 at 9 PM to discuss their sentencing.

I can’t say I feel bad for them that much. You do the crime, you have to do the time. However, I feel bad for their kids having to see their parents go through all this, knowing that they will both be going to prison. Hopefully, Joe and Teresa have both learned from this, and will come out stronger and smarter people.

Chris Brown To Be In Jail For At Least 30 Days!

chris-brown-boxing-pose

Chris Brown is in jail after being kicked out of rehab, but get this, he will have to STAY IN JAIL until April 23rd! Brown had court today in a bid to win release, but this time he was shut down!

For all of you not in the loop, Breezy was arrested on Friday after he got kicked out of rehab. The judge had ordered Brown to stay in rehab while he decided Brown had violated his probation in the Rihanna case. After he got kicked out of rehab, Brown was immediately arrested.

In court today, TMZ reports that “the judge said Chris had an “inability to stay out of trouble.” Hizzoner was especially concerned at a statement Chris made at the rehab joint, “I am good at using guns and knives.”

So Chris will sit in jail until April 23rd! A probation violation hearing will take place on April 23rd and if he is convicted he is in deep doo doo.

Possibility? Four years of jail!!!!

So many are wanting to know why he was kicked out of rehab. Well, apparently there were three reasons.

1. He violated a rule made specifically for him…stay at least TWO feet away from every woman in the facility.

2. Initially refusing a random drug test. He eventually did take the test and it came back clean.

3. He talked smack about rehab during a group therapy session.

BOOM!

So as of the moment, Chris Brown is sitting behind bars!

I wonder what Rihanna thinks…

Chief Keef: Jailed AGAIN!

And we thought DMX was the one to beat for multiple jail entrances. It looks like he’s about to meet his match in young rapper Chief Keef. The teenage rapper has allegedly ailed tree drug tests and so is being transferred to a rehab center to get over his marijuana addiction.

Good luck with that!

Keef doesn’t seem to be too fazed about it, boasting on his Twitter:

“Judge Putting me Back in jail See y’all later.”

As recently as last month he spent 20 days in jail after failing a drug test, but only served 11 days because of overcrowding. At the rate he’s going, it won’t be long before he’s in there for a full month.
An entire month, folx!

American justice at work!

Orlando Brown Sentenced to 180 Days Behind Bars

Orlando Brown, best known for his role as Eddie on Disney’s That’s So Raven, is locked up! Two weeks into a 180-day sentence, Orlando was sentenced to jail time after failing to show proof that he completed court-ordered alcohol education classes after he was arrested in 2011 for a DUI.

Even though he technically has 6 months, it’s expected that he will be released early on Sept. 19, since LA County jails are so overcrowded! Lucky him!

This isn’t Orlando’s first run-in with the law. He was arrested back in 2007 for drug possession in Texas. Cops pulled him over for driving at night without headlights, and then found nine grams of weed in his side door when the car was searched!

These child stars need to get their lives together! Yeah we’re all human and mistakes, but something so dumb as drunk driving? Come on Eddie! He’s getting out on a technicality, but hopefully he doesn’t do something stupid again. If so, he’ll definitely be in there a lot longer!

Dolce & Gabbana Get Jail Time!

Fashion hit the prison walls?! Legendary designers Domenico Dolce  and Stefano Gabbana have officially each been sentenced to a year and eight months behind bars after being found guilty of tax evasion!

Dolce and Gabbana were first accused of evading Italy taxes back in 2004, which they’ve strongly denied.  The fashion label’s sale of its signature and D&G lines to Luxembourg-based holding company Gado Srl raised a red flag. The designers’ lawyer, Massimo Dinoia, called for the pair to be acquitted of the charges – while prosecutor Gaetano Ruta believed that Dolce, Gabbana and company board member Cristiana Ruella should be sent to prison for two-and-a-half years.  He added that their accountant, Luciano Patelli, should be incarcerated for three years.

It’s been rumored that Dolce and Gabbana will fight to appeal the decision.

Keeping a close eye on this case…definitely a tough hit to the fashion industry!

Chad Ochocinco Released From Jail

Chad-Johnson-to-Be-Released-From-Jail-Early-Terrell-Owns-Visits

 

 

 

 

             

 

 Chad Ochocinco got off real lucky! His infamous butt slap was seen by a Florida judge as being disrespectful to the courtroom, and landed him in the slammer for 30 days…or so we all thought. However, it seems like the judge had a change of heart, agreeing to release him today. According to reports. Chad went before the judge this morning in handcuffs and was scolded for his bad behavior, before she allowed him to walk free.  She still extended his probation by another month, but he’s walking free.

Over the weekend, Chad’s friend Terrell Owens visited him in jail and  tweeted about the experience. He posted:

Just visited the homie @ochocinco. He’s in good spirits, he needs a haircut already tho. Lol. He sends his best regards to everyone.

That was the 1st time ever visiting someone in jail and hopefully the last. That’s not a place anyone wants to be regardless of how many days. I really didn’t know what to expect but to see the homie locked up is a very humbling experience to talk to him via vid conference. [Johnson] let me know that’s not where anyone wants to be. I know he’s only in the county jail but to someone that has never been locked up … Jail is Jail!”

Well here’s hoping that Ochocinco gets himself together, and that’s his first and last stint behind bars. And that he leaves the butt slaps for the field…whenever he actually gets back on one.

Lindsay Lohan Rejects Plea Deal, Which Makes Total Sense to Lindsay Lohan

lindsay-lohan-all-hollywood-event-02_0

In what you might call a ballsy, perplexing, or just plain crazy move, Lindsay Lohan is apparently refusing a plea deal that would send her to jail or rehab. Why? Because she’s Lindsay freaking Lohan, that’s why.

Remember when LiLo smashed into that pesky cement truck last summer? No? I know, it’s hard to keep up. Yes? Well, despite plenty of witnesses that point to her being behind the wheel (including the passenger of the car), a source says LiLo is “confident she will be acquitted.”

According to a RadarOnline.com exclusive, prosecutors are demanding that any plea deal will consist of either rehab or jail time, but her attorney, Mark Heller, is banking on a plea deal that won’t include jail time or any compulsory rehab treatment. Because LiLo is totally opposed to rehab because, seriously everyone, she has absolutely no problem with drugs or alcohol, duh!

It’s important to note that if LiLo were sentenced to jail she’d likely serve about 11 days due to overcrowding.

Anyway, her latest criminal trial is set to start Monday, March 18th. And even if she’s acquitted it’s still not over, because she could still go to jail for up to 245 days for violating probation on the necklace theft case.

 

 

Lindsay Lohan Could Go To Jail, FORREAL!!!

It seems as if Lindsay Lohan could go to jail. I know, I know. I’m like the got damn kid that cried wolf. But, seriously!!! She could go to jail for lying to police over a car crash earlier this year.

TMZ is reporting:

The actress is alleged to have lied about not being behind the wheel of her Porsche in a car crash at Pacific Coast Highway in June.

However, several witnesses have stated that Lohan was driving the car, which hit the back of an 18-wheeler truck, reports TMZ.

Police sources have said that the case will be filed as a misdemeanor charge by the Santa Monica City Attorney later this week.

With Lohan currently on probation over a jewelry theft in 2011, the charge could trigger a probation violation, leading to possible jail time.

The key word is “possible”. How many times have we heard the words Lindsay Lohan and jail time in the same sentence and nothing ever happened but a got damn slap on the freckled wrist?! And we know damn well, Freckles has no money to pay the peeps of the law off.

Unfortunately Lilo’s lawyer Shawn Holley is going to have to try to get Linds out of another caper.

If you recall, that accident that went down in June had police officers immediately on the scene and our beloved Lindsay told the cops that she was NOT driving the Porsche, which as far as we know was not the case at all. And we all know that Lindsay would NEVER lie. Eye roll.

The Big question is, WILL she go to jail?

I’ll run around my town in nothing but a pair of Depends if she does.

John Travolta’s car thief gets 14 years in jail!

John Travolta’s vintage Mercedes-Benz was chopped by some guy who is into chopping and no, I’m not talking about the hi-yah kind of chopping, peeps. Perhaps this guy did do a little wax on-wax off Mr. Miagi kind of shiznit before he went through with his actual “chops”, but we do not know for sure.

So here’s the deal…chopping is basically taking a vehicle and chopping it apart for parts and usually vehicles that are chopped are the rare and more valuable ones. Disassembling the whole damn thing and then taking the valuable pieces from it and selling them is what this guy Michael T. Green is into doing. But not anymore. The guy has been convicted and sentenced to FOURTEEN years behind bars.

Green is not a celebrity, nor a person of great influence, so of course he gets some hardcore time in the state of California.

Back in September, the Grease actor had parked his 1970 Mercedes-Benz 280 SL convertible near a Jaguar dealership in Santa Monica only to discover it missing upon his return. The police did arrest two men, D.L. Rayford, Jr. and Michael T. Green, in connection with the case and just last week Green was sentenced. Green not only chopped vehicles but he owned and operated a California chop shop where stolen vehicles are disassembled and the parts are sold.

According to the Los Angeles Times,

Green confessed to stealing more than 30 classic cars since 2010. Green’s accomplice, Rayford, Jr., pleaded no contest to grand theft auto in January of this year and he was sentenced to serve 16-months behind bars. He was also ordered to pay Travolta $50,000 in restitution.

Ouch.

Freckles thinks her next court appearance will be easy peasy

Lemon freakin’ squeezy.

We just had a little rant yesterday about Lindsay Lohan and her being fired from her community service gig at the Downtown Women’s Center. And I also expressed my big desire to throw Freckles back in the slammer, but apparently SHE is damn confident that nothing is going to happen to her.

Find out what she told a friend about her upcoming probation hearing below.

Jail isn’t supposed to be fun, Pete.

Believe it or not, Pete Doherty aka Doperty is out of prison. While I’m used to hearing about his law breaking antics, I’m quite surprised to hear that not only that he is out of jail but that his time out from behind bars has been a “rotten few months”. Don’t get me wrong, he’s happy to be out but it hasn’t been easy adjusting to life outside.

After being jailed for six months for drug possession, Pete is out and has been performing gigs every now and then but
