Taylor Swift Stalker Gets 10-Years Probation
A guy accused of stalking Taylor Swift has escaped jail time but he won’t exactly be completely free.
Frank Andrew Hoover was originally arrested in 2016 for violating a protective order. Taylor had taken out the protective order after he sent threatening emails to her father, with one saying he was going to “end” her whole family.
After pleasing guilty of violating the protective order Hoover was sentenced to ten years probation, and will tracked by GPS for at least the first year. He will also undergo psychological testing, be subject to substance abuse classes and drug testing, surrender all fire arms and must stay at least a mile away from the singer and her family. If he violates any of the conditions he will be headed to jail.
LeBron James Joins Justin Timberlake On Stage
Justin Timberlake brought out a pretty big special guest at his show in Cleveland this weekend. The singer’s “Man of the Woods” tour hit the Quicken Loans Arena, where he was joined by LeBron James and some of his Cleveland Cavaliers' teammates for a toast.
"A MOMENT. Had no idea @kingjames was jumping on stage tonight," J.T. shared alongside a video on Instagram. "Thanks for celebrating with us, Cleveland...cheers!"
LeBron later added, “My brother @justintimberlake showed up and showed out last night at the Q! One of the greatest to ever do it in my lifetime and still going strong! Don’t stop bro. Until next time my G!”
The visit may have been LeBron’s way of returning the favor to Justin, who was in attendance Friday night when the Cavaliers New Orleans Pelicans 107-102.
Ed Sheeran Denies He Stole Song For Tim McGraw & Faith Hill Track
Ed Sheeran is fighting back against accusations that he stole a song and turned into a track for Tim McGraw and Faith Hill.
Australian songwriters Sean Carey and Beau Golden filed a lawsuit in January claiming the Tim and Faith tune, “The Rest Of Our Life,” which Ed co-wrote, represents "blatant copying" of their 2014 song "When I Found You.” But now Ed is fighting back.
Ed’s lawyers just filed docs in the case, insisting the songs aren’t similar, and arguing that he didn’t ask for permission from Carey and Golden because the Tim and Faith tune is an "originally and independently created musical composition."
Ed is asking a judge to dismiss the case.
