Suge Knight is pouring fuel all over a legendary conspiracy theory by speaking out from jail to explain why he believes there’s a good chance Tupac Shakur is alive.

The notorious Death Row Records CEO spoke to Ice-T and Soledad O’Brien — on the phone from the L.A. County jail — when he dropped the bombshell. Suge told them something about Pac’s hospital stay after the 1996 shooting just doesn’t add up for him.

TMZ got this exclusive clip from the special, “Who Shot Biggie & Tupac?” … where Ice and Soledad lead an investigation into the unsolved murders and uncover new accounts of the shootings from people who were there. It airs Sunday, September 24 on Fox.

Orange County deputy accused of stealing items from crime scene

A deputy with the Orange County Sheriff’s Office is accused of grand theft after stealing items from a crime scene, including cash, and possibly using stolen credit cards in another county, investigators said Tuesday.

The Sheriff’s Office learned of the allegations against Joseph Suheil Haddad on Sunday, which is when the alleged theft took place.

The situation started when Haddad responded to a reported burglary on Heming Way in Orange County. The victim in the case, Sammy Shehata, called officials to report what had happened. While at the residence, deputies found marijuana, THC gummies, cannabis seeds and Hashish,  the Sheriff’s Office said.

A second deputy came to the address on Heming Way to handle the drug case, which led to Shehata’s arrest on multiple drug possession charges, officials said.

When Shehata asked to gather his belongings, he noted some missing items and complained to the Sheriff’s Office regarding the alleged theft of a wallet, credit cards and $1,750 in cash.

This prompted the Professional Standards Section, which is affiliated with the Sheriff’s Office, to launch an investigation into the missing items.

Officials said they secured evidence and found probable cause against Haddad for the theft of a wallet, cash and credit cards.

The investigative team then contacted the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office regarding the illegal use of the credit cards in several separate incidents in that jurisdiction, authorities said.

This resulted in a joint investigative effort by both agencies. Osceola County investigators will handle the alleged crimes and charges that involve their region.

Officials in Osceola County served Haddad with a search warrant on Tuesday, arrested him and booked him at the county jail.

Haddad, who has been with the Orange County Sheriff’s Office since April 2016, was immediately relieved of duty without pay and his law enforcement authority was revoked.

“The facts in this case are troubling to me.The Orange County Sheriff’s Office is not a place for a liar or thief to work. I am committed to ensuring that such individuals are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law and that they will be fired,” Sheriff Jerry Demings said.

He will remain in this status as the court proceedings move forward and until the Professional Standards investigation is finished.

In March, the department received a complaint that Haddad battered his romantic partner, according to the Sheriff’s Office. Haddad was exonerated on that charge in July.

The department said there is another open investigation involving Haddad, but details on that complaint were not available.

Haddad met department standards in his most recent performance evaluation, which was received in July.

A supervisor listed his best strength as his commitment to teamwork and learning from his mistakes. His organizational skills and his ability to meet deadlines need to be improved, according to the evaluation.

Haddad was hired at the Orange County Sheriff’s Office in May 2016. He was previously assigned to East Orange County patrol duties.

Laurence Fishburne, Gina Torres announce separation after Torres photographed with another man

Another one of Hollywood’s longest relationships has come to an end.

People reported that actors Laurence Fishburne and Gina Torres have separated. The news has been confirmed by Torres after Page Six published photos of Torres kissing another man Tuesday.

“With heavy hearts, Laurence and I quietly separated and began the dissolution of our marriage in the early fall of last year,” Torres said in a statement Wednesday. “There are no bad guys here. Only a love story with a different ending than either one of us had expected.

“Happily, however, our family remains intact and we will continue to raise our daughter together with love and joy and awe. As well as raise each other up with respect and love and the continued understanding that we’re in this together, if not side by side.”

Torres, 48, and Fishburne, 58, were married for 14 years and were married in 2002. They are parents to one daughter, Delilah Fishburne.

In 2003, the two appeared in together in “The Matrix Reloaded” and again in the TV series “Hannibal,” which ran from 2013 – 2015.

Photos of Torres with another man were taken last week while the two were at lunch in Los Angeles, according to Page Six. The gossip site also said the man is an entrepreneur and solar energy investor.

E! News reported that the two had not been seen together at a public event since December 2015 and neither had been seen wearing wedding rings in recent months.

Teen returns lost wallet with $1,500 stuffed inside and it was all caught on camera

A big hug for a California teenager who found a wallet with $1,500 inside and returned it to its rightful owner.

That’s what Melissa Vang did when 18-year-old Tyler Opdyke showed up at her door to make sure she had found the lost wallet. He had hidden it under her doormat when no one answered his knock.

This is how it happened. Opdyke was handing out fliers for his uncle’s pesticide business, according to KOVR, when he stumbled upon the wallet bulging with cash.

Vang’s husband had dropped it as he was leaving the home

“I just really thought about what I would want someone to do if I were to drop my wallet,” Opdyke told KOVR. “And then I thought about the house. I thought about the family who lived there.”

When he rang the doorbell to return the wallet, no one answered, because Vang was afraid to go to the door, but surveillance video captured Opdyke holding up the wallet.

So he hid the wallet under the doormat and returned later to make sure the family had found it. This time Vang and her two daughters answered the door. They hugged Opdyke and thanked him for his honesty and integrity in returning the lost money.

Serena Williams shares open letter to her mother since giving birth to Alexis Olympia

In an open letter posted on Reddit Tuesday, the tennis icon reflects on the role her own mother, Oracene Price, played in protecting her as she grew up in the public eye as she prepares to do the same for her own daughter.

Williams welcomed daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. with fiance, Reddit founder Alexis Ohanian,Sept. 1.

Alexis Olympia made her debut on her mother’s Instagram story and in a YouTube video posted by Ohanian Sept. 12.

“You are one of the strongest women I know. I was looking at my daughter (OMG, yes, I have a daughter ) and she has my arms and legs! My exact same strong, muscular, powerful, sensational arms and body,” Williams wrote. “I don’t know how I would react if she has to go through what I’ve gone through since I was a 15 year old and even to this day.”

“I’m not sure how you did not go off on every single reporter, person, announcer and quite frankly, hater, who was too ignorant to understand the power of a black woman.”

Williams expressed gratitude to her mother for helping her show the range of beauty women with different shapes and sizes have.

“I am proud we were able to show them what some women look like. We don’t all look the same. We are curvy, strong, muscular, tall, small, just to name a few, and all the same: we are women and proud!

“You are so classy, I only wish I could take your lead.”

Williams thanks Price for being her role model and hopes to do the same for her daughter.

“Thank you for being the role model I needed to endure all the hardships that I now regard as a challenges–ones that I enjoy. I hope to teach my baby Alexis Olympia the same, and have the same fortitude you have had.”

Heartbroken dad shares viral message after ‘horrific’ bullying of special-needs son

A heartbroken dad is speaking out against bullying after his 7-year-old son with special needs told him what was going on at school.

Dan Bezzant of Idaho posted a now-viral plea on Facebook asking parents to educate their children. His son, Jackson, 7, was born with Treacher Collins syndrome. The condition affects the development of his bones and facial tissue. It has also left him deaf and has affected his eyesight, Inside Edition reports.

He said kids at his son’s school bully him relentlessly because he’s different.

“My heart is in pieces right now … my soul feels like it’s ripping from my chest,” Bezzant wrote on Facebook. “This beautiful young man my son Jackson has to endure a constant barrage of derogatory comments and ignorance like I’ve never witnessed.”

Bezzant told Inside Edition he sat in his car and cried after his son told him about what other kids did to him at school.

“He is called ugly and freak and monster on a daily basis by his peers at school. He talks about suicide…he’s not quite 8! He says he has no friends and everyone hates him. Kids throw rocks at him and push him shouting these horrific words,” Bezzant wrote.

He asked parents to  teach their kids about children with special needs.

Bezzant wrote, “Talk to them about compassion and love for our fellow man. … [Jackson has] endured horrific surgery and has several more in the coming years.”

Bezzant’s post went viral and has been shared more than 51,000 times. He hopes attitudes change toward people who look different.

“This shouldn’t be happening … to anyone,” wrote Bezzant.

Deputies: Couple cuts, steals $5K in powerlines from Florida neighborhood

A man and a woman were arrested Saturday on charges of stealing powerlines in a Florida neighborhood, according to the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office. According to an arrest report, the pair, identified as Charles Mahoy, 41, and Andrea Foster, 45, were in residents’ yards cutting down powerlines, and neighbors said they repeatedly asked the couple to leave. The report said that when a deputy asked Mahoy about the situation, he replied that he was “just cutting up some of the powerline that was laying on the ground.” Neighbors told deputies that Mahoy and Foster were loading the cut powerlines into a white truck, which authorities said they found parked near the homes. Mahoy told deputies that the truck was his, authorities said. Spools of powerline wire were loaded in the bed of the truck, deputies said. The report stated that Mahoy was “intentionally depriving the owner of the wire (Duke Energy) to their usage of the property in order to appropriate the property to his own use,” and that the “theft was facilitated by conditions created from Hurricane Irma.” Mahoy said his house was damaged in the hurricane and he was cutting the wire because he needed money, and that he didn’t think it was stealing because the lines were on the ground, the report said. The wire that was in the truck was valued at about $5,000, deputies said. The arrest report said deputies found what looked like methamphetamine and marijuana inside the truck. The drugs were located inside a Play-Doh container in the center-front storage compartment of the vehicle, deputies said. A deputy also found a glass smoking pipe and a small amount of loose marijuana inside a purse in the vehicle, according to the report. The pair also face drug and felony trespassing charges. Mahoy had been out on bail on other trespassing charges when the arrest happened, authorities said. Deputies said they are requesting that Mahoy’s bond be revoked and that he be placed on a no-bond status. Authorities said that if released, they will formally request Mahoy be fitted with a GPS monitoring system due to his habitual and repeat violations of theft and burglaries.

Kevin Hart Apologizes to His Wife and Kids in Emotional Video After Alleged Extortion: ‘I’m Not Perfect’

Kevin Hart is apologizing to his wife and kids after an unidentified person allegedly tried to extort him for a sexually suggestive video.

Hart — who is expecting a child with wife Eniko Parrish — posted an emotional apology video on his Instagram on Saturday night, apologizing for his “mistakes” and claiming that there was someone who was trying to make “financial gain” off of his past misbehavior.

“I’m at a place in my life where I feel like I have a target on my back,” Hart, 38, said. “And because of that I should make smart decisions. And recently, I didn’t. You know, I’m not perfect. I’m not going to sit up here and say that I am or claim to be in any way shape or form. And I made a bad error in judgement and I put myself in a bad environment where only bad things can happen and they did. And in doing that I know that I’m going to hurt the people closest to me, who’ve I talked to and apologized to, that would be my wife and my kids.

“And I just, you know, it’s a s—-y moment. It’s a s—-y moment when you know you’re wrong and there’s no excuses for your wrong behavior,” Hart continued. “At the end of the day man, I just simply have got to do better. But I’m also not going to allow a person to have financial gain off of my mistakes and in this particular situation that was what was attempted. I said I’d rather fess up to my mistakes.”

The Central Intelligence actor captioned the video with a message about doing “better” for his pregnant wife and his kids from a previous relationship, Hendrix and Haven Hart.

According to TMZ, a woman allegedly demanded money from Hart after the pair engaged in a “sexually suggestive” video. According to the outlet it is not a sex tape.

“Someone tried to set Kevin up in a failed extortion attempt,” a rep for Hart told PEOPLE in a statement. “As law enforcement is involved, we cannot comment further as it could affect the investigation.”


Tyrese Gibson calls out his ex-wife after she accuses him of abusing their daughter

Tyrese Gibson let out an angry rant on Instagram on Wednesday after his ex-wife was granted a temporary restraining order against him, People magazine reports.

“After 9 years of working extremely hard to co-parent our child, I am disappointed to learn that the mother of my daughter has made gross and false accusations against my character in a shameful attempt to ruin our co-parenting efforts,” he told PEOPLE in a statement.

“There is nothing I love more in this world than my daughter and I would never do anything to harm her well-being or happiness. Co-parenting is tough and it’s unfortunate when your partner tries to sabotage the situation with hurtful lies and irrational behavior,” he added.

On Wednesday, Gibson, 38, shared photos on Instagram saying he just wanted to co-parent his daughter, adding that his ex, Norma Mitchell Gibson, was “being bitter, resentful” and mean-spirited.

“All I wanna do is co/parent nothing else…… Please…. Stick and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt…… I’ve only prayed that your heart heals and we live our lives separately and peacefully on behalf of our daughter……,” he wrote on Instagram. “There’s someone out here for everybody – Norma I know you can see this, I’m sorry I got re-married, I’m sorry we didn’t work out I’m sorry you haven’t been able to find another man since we separated…… Sometimes you get married and have kids and things just don’t work out, but I have NEVER wished harm on you.”

He continued with, “I was hoping by now you got over what we used to be… Being bitter, resentful and just felt out mean will has never been good for our daughter …. But I see the attacks just won’t stop so I believe this too will pass and God and the courts will reveal the truth.”

The couple were married from 2007 to 2009, and share 10-year-old daughter, Shayla.

In court documents obtained by PEOPLE, physical and legal custody of Shayla was temporarily granted to Norma, while ordering the  Fast & Furious actor to stay 100 yards away from both of them, including Norma’s home, pending a hearing scheduled for Oct. 2.

The actor was not granted visitation rights before the hearing date.

In court documents, Norma accused Tyrese of of abusing their daughter on Aug. 19, alleging the actor “ pushed our daughter to the ground, pinned her face down, put his knees on her back, grabbed her hands with one arm and beat her with the other.”

Norma alleges her ex hit Shayla “between 12 and 16 times,” leading the child to allegedly later tell her mother that she couldn’t sit down due to pain and saying, “Mum, Dad beat me so hard that it hurts when I sit down.”

In her declaration, Norma claims Tyrese was diagnosed with Bipolar disorder as well as manic behavior by three psychotherapists — which she said he denied. She also expressed she was “deeply concerned” about the actor taking their daughter to Dubai, where he has allegedly threatened to travel in the past — and stating the he did not return their daughter’s passport to her when she requested.

She also claimed the  actor withheld contact between her and Shayla while their daughter stayed with him.

Apart from alleging that he abused their daughter, Norma also wrote in her declaration that he was prone to “beat on the people he is in conflict with” and that he had hit her “a number of times in the past including when I was pregnant with our daughter.”

The actor remarried to Samantha Lee Gibson on Valentine’s Day in a secret ceremony.


Protesters took to the streets of downtown St. Louis on Friday after a judge found former police officer Jason Stockley not guilty of first degree murder in the 2011 shooting death of black motorist Anthony Lamar Smith, CNN reported.

At least 23 people were arrested by St. Louis police as protesters and activists gathered outside the courthouse and marched through the downtown area.

After the verdict, protesters and activists gathered outside the courthouse and marched through the city’s downtown for hours. Some could be seen locking arms and praying together, while others held signs, chanting, “No justice, no peace.”

About 1,000 protesters surrounded the home of St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported. The protesters broke at least two windows and threw red paint at mayor’s brick house before police in riot gear moved in to break it up.

Four police officers were assaulted, with one treated for a hand injury, CNN reported.

Video footage showed officers using tear gas to disperse the crowds after police said the protests were considered an unlawful assembly.

After Irma: Sixty-four Florida nursing homes still without power

The number of nursing homes in Florida still without power stood at 64 midday Thursday — down from about 400 that lost power due to Hurricane Irma, according to the  Florida Health Care Association.

The plight of residents in nursing homes and other residential health care facilities turned dire on Wednesday, when heat reportedly contributed to the death of eight residents in a Broward County nursing home without power.

Under state and federal regulations, nursing homes are not required to have generators but must have an “alternate source of energy to maintain temperatures to protect resident health and safety. …”

The association, a trade group that represents 80 percent of the state’s long-term care providers, has been urging providers without power to contact the association for assistance .


‘Spider-Man’ helps clean up Hurricane Irma debris

In case you were wondering, Spider-Man forgoes his web-slinging ways and sticks to a chainsaw when cleaning hurricane debris.

Photographs, shared to Facebook by Bradenton-resident Cheryl Hanbury, shows a man dressed in a Spider-Man costume helping to clean up hurricane debris.

The costume-clad man climbed atop a large downed tree and used a chainsaw to clear the tree from a roadway. “Spider-Man” even took time out of his clean up efforts to pose for a pair of photos atop the tree.

Since being posted on Facebook on Monday, the post has garnered more than 400 reactions and 850 shares.

Hurricane Irma aftermath: Beware disaster relief donation scams, official says

In the wake of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma,  Attorney General Chris Carr is warning consumers to be on the lookout for scams.

“Seeing or hearing about the devastation caused by a natural disaster evokes our sympathies and our desire to help those affected,” Carr’s office wrote in a news release Monday night. “Unfortunately, scammers realize this and do not hesitate to take advantage of people’s heightened emotions. They may pose as reputable charities soliciting donations and target consumers through unsolicited emails, telemarketing calls or by knocking on their doors. They often create legitimate-looking websites that have similar names as actual charities, sometimes even using the actual logo of a reputable relief organization.”

Below is a list of recommendations to make sure you are donating to a legitimate charity:

  • Don’t respond to unsolicited emails and avoid clicking on any links they contain. Only open attachments from senders you know and trust.
  • Don’t give out money over the phone unless you have initiated the call and are confident that the charity is legitimate.
  • You can research a charity by going to or
  • Look up the actual website of the charity you want to donate to rather than trusting a link from an email or pop-up ad.
  • Note that legitimate charities’ websites typically end in .org, not .com.
  • Be cautious of crowdfunding sites. Since some of them do little to vet people who post for assistance after a disaster, be extra diligent about donating this way. The Better Business Bureau warns that some individuals posting for donations may not have any official connection to a charitable organization or could be using names and photos of victims without their families’ permission.

Home Repair Fraud

Following a weather-related emergency, scammers often show up offering to help with tree removal and home repair work.

The attorney general’s office advises consumers to do business with local firms that are well-established and whose references can be checked.

“Do not give individuals money upfront based upon the promise that they will be back to do the work,” the office said.

Below are more suggestions for things to do before you hire someone to do home repairs:

  • Ask friends, neighbors and co-workers for referrals.
  • Check with the Better Business Bureau ( to see if there are any complaints against the business.
  • Make sure that general contractors, electricians, plumbers and heating and air conditioning contractors are licensed. You can verify this on the Secretary of State’s website: Note that certain specialty occupations such as roofers, painters, drywall contractors and repair handymen are not required to be licensed by the state.
  • Get written bids from several contractors. Be skeptical if the bid is too low. Cheaper is not necessarily better. Ask for references and check them out.
  • Always insist on a written contract for work to be performed, with all guarantees, warranties and promises in writing.
  • Ask to see proof of insurance — personal liability, workers’ compensation and property damage.
  • Never pay for the entire project before the work begins. A small payment may be due upfront, but don’t pay in full until the project has been completed to your satisfaction.
  • Paying with a credit card instead of cash will give you more protections against fraud.


Scammers may also try to steal your money by posing as a representative from an insurance company,

The Federal Emergency Management Agency, Small Business Association or a law enforcement agency.

Don’t give out personal or financial information to someone you don’t know.

Remember that the services offered by FEMA and SBA are free, so if a “representative” asks you for payment, it’s a scam.
