Charles Bronson claims he would not have bitten prison chief's nose off because he's 'a vegetarian and all'

Charles Bronson insisted in court November 14 he would not have bitten off the nose of a prison governor during an alleged attack saying: "I'm a vegetarian and all". The prisoner, who is currently defending himself in a trial at the Leeds Crown Court, U.K., made the comment while he was cross-examining Mark Docherty, a governor at Her Majesty's Prison (HMP) Wakefield who accused Bronson of attempting serious harm on January 25 this year. 
The jurors in court heard the 65-year-old inmate, who denied the charge of attempting to cause grievous bodily harm with intent, had pinned the governor to the ground in the prison before a welfare meeting and allegedly told him: "I will bite you f***ing nose off and I will gouge your eyes out."

The Daily Mail reported Bronson assured everyone in the court: "I can assure you I have never bitten anyone's nose off in my life. Plus, I'm a vegetarian and all." Bronson demonstrated to the court how fast he could throw blows by punching his own hands in the dock. He is a serving prisoner at HMP Frankland in County Durham and said: "In three seconds, I could hit a man ten times in the face."

Addressing Docherty, Bronson then said: "If I had used both hands, I would have hit you 20 times in the face. Do you accept that?" When the governor then denied that, Bronson spoke of how, because of the speed at which the prison staff caught hold of him and moved him away, he was only on top of Docherty for three seconds and did not throw a single blow. He said: "But why did I not throw a punch? Because I wasn't going to punch you. I wasn't going to hurt you."
The court then heard Docherty suffered from a swollen neck, scratches on his face, and whiplash after the alleged attack. Bronson said outright he was struggling to contain his laughter at the thought the governor suffered from whiplash. He said: "I don't think that in a month of Sundays you had whiplash. I think you're trying to pull the wool over people's eyes. Is that true?" The governor indicated to the court that this wasn't true.

The jurors were told, before Bronson married actress Paula Williamson at the prison in November last year, he was told he and his new wife would be given just 22 wedding photographs, all of which were taken by prison staff, and no guests would be allowed to take pictures inside. Docherty said the prison staff, however, decided not to give the pictures to Williamson after they heard a member of the "paparazzi" was among the wedding guests.
Bronson asked the prison governor: "How do you feel about humiliating my wife? How do you feel about the fact that my wife was the only bride in Britain on that day not to have a wedding photograph? How would you feel if that was your wife or husband? I don't know what happens in your personal life, you may have a wife or a husband."

Questioning the governor on whether not handing over the pictures to his wife was possibly the motivation behind his alleged attack, Bronson asked: "Is it possible that all I was going to do was get you in a bear hug, a gentle one, and just whisper in your ear 'where are my wife's wedding photos?'." 
Carl Fitch, the prosecutor, said once the inmate was restrained, Bronson told officers he wanted to attack Docherty since November last year after he "disrespected my wife". Fitch said: "The prison would never allow these photographs to be taken outside the prison, as they feared that Ms. Williamson would give them to the media if they did."

"The Crown says that it is for that reason, among others, that [he] had a grudge against Mr. Docherty, who he held responsible for the withholding of these photographs." As the prosecutor was taking a big sip of water in the morning session, Bronson, who has served 40 years behind bars, was reportedly heard saying: "I hope that's not gin". The trial continues and will conclude at the end of this week.

Teenagers are boiling sanitary pads and drinking the resulting liquid in latest unhygienic way to get high

Children in Indonesia have found a strange way to get high by taking to boiling sanitary products in water and drinking the fluid in order to get a kick. Many children are reportedly taking to this bizarre way to try and get a buzz. 

Several police forces in Indonesia have reported numerous cases of this bizarre practice. The children all face a chance of catching something given how unhygienic the whole process is. It has been reported that once they boil sanitary products such as used tampons and sanitary pads and drink the liquid, the users gets high and feels like they are flying. People have also reported that the mixture can cause hallucinations.

According to a representative from the National Narcotics Agency, Senior Commander Suprinarto shared that the presence of chlorine in the mixture is what causes the high and gives the user the reported effects. He shared with Straits News, "The used pads they took from the trash were put in boiling water. After it cooled down, they drank it together". The whole process is neither against the law nor illegal.
However, many teenagers have been arrested for using the strange practice though it is not known whether they were ever charged. Indonesia has very strict laws and a zero tolerance policy towards drugs.

An Indonesian advocate for safe drinking, Jimy Ginting, shared that this is not a new phenomenon and claims that teenagers around Indonesia have also been arrested for very similar charges. As reported by the Jakarta Post, he said, "I don't know who started it all, but I knew it started around two years ago. There is no law against it so far. There is no law against these kids using a mixture of mosquito repellent and cold syrup to get drunk."

Rock star Billy Idol became a U.S. citizen on Wednesday in Los Angeles, holding the American flag as he took the Naturalization Oath of Allegiance.

Billy Idol became a U.S. citizen on Wednesday in Los Angeles, holding the American flag as he took the Naturalization Oath of Allegiance.

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services tweeted out a collage of images of the 62-year-old rock star in the ceremony.
“It’s a nice day for a naturalization ceremony,” the USCIS wrote in a punny tweet. “Congratulations on Billy Idol on becoming a #newUScitizen today in Los Angeles, CA.”
The “(It’s a Nice Day for a) White Wedding” singer was born William Michael Albert in the U.K.
Idol moved to New York in 1981 to launch a solo career, after co-founding the punk rock group Generation X in the U.K., according to Daily Mail.
Palms Casino Resort and Live Nation announced Idol is returning for his second residency at the Pearl Concert Theater. The 62-year-old, known for such hits as “Rebel Yell,” ″Dancing with Myself” and “Mony Mony,” will be joined by his longtime guitarist Steve Stevens for the 10-show run in 2019.

WikiLeaks' Assange ‘has been charged,’ inadvertent court filing shows: reports

Julian Assange, the WikiLeaks founder, "has been charged," according to an unrelated court filing that inadvertently mentioned his name, reports said.

The New York Times reported that the filing was first spotted late Thursday. The reports did not indicate what charges Assange will face.
The Washington Post, citing people familiar with the matter, reported that the disclosure about Assange being charged is true, but it was unintentional.
Fox News emailed the Department of Justice early Friday for comment and did not immediately get a response.
A spokesman from the U.S. attorney’s office in the Eastern District of Virginia told the Post that the court filing "was made in error. That was not the intended name for this filing."
The filing in which Assange is named is part of an unrelated case involving a 29-year-old man accused of enticing a 15-year-old girl, Reuters reported.
Assange faces a variety of potential charges, including the Espionage Act, the Wall Street Journal reported earlier.
Assange has been seeking asylum in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London since 2012 when British courts ordered him extradited to Sweden to face questioning in a sexual assault case. That matter has since been dropped, but WikiLeaks supporters have claimed that Assange fears being extradited to the United States if he leaves the embassy.
The Times reported Thursday that the filing was first brought to light by Seamus Hughes, a terrorism expert from George Washington University, who posted the highlighted item on Twitter.
It read, “Another procedure short of sealing will not adequately protect the needs of law enforcement at this time because, due to the sophistication of the defendant and the publicity surrounding the case, no other procedure is likely to keep confidential the fact that Assange has been charged.”
Prosecutors wanted to keep quiet on the charges in order to avoid an attempt by Assange to evade arrest, according to Reuters.
The Post reported that the disclosure came in a filing from Assistant U.S. Attorney Kellen S. Dwyer. He is reportedly also assigned to the Assange case.
In a series of tweets on Thursday, WikiLeaks called it an “apparent cut-and-paste error” and that the website, which shares confidential government documents, “has never been contacted by anyone from his [Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s] office.”
Barry Pollack, a lawyer who represents Assange, told the Journal that he hadn’t been made aware of any developments and condemned the notion of prosecuting him.
“We have heard nothing from authorities suggesting that a criminal case against Mr. Assange is imminent,” Pollack said. “Prosecuting someone for publishing truthful information would set a terrible and dangerous precedent.”
The filing comes as Mueller is reportedly looking into Roger Stone, an informal advisor to then-presidential candidate Donald Trump, and whether Stone had an inside track and prior knowledge of WikiLeaks plans to release the hacked emails from the Democratic National Convention and then-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in 2016, according to a New York Times report.
NBC News on Wednesday revealed text messages obtained from Stone that he claims vindicates him and his friend, radio host Randy Credico.
Credico denied having any insight into Assange’s plans, telling NBC "there's absolutely nothing there that I had any knowledge of anything that Assange was going to do because I didn't."

Kim Kardashian accused of photoshopping picture of daughter North to shrink her waist

'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star Kim Kardashian is being accused of photoshopping the body of her five-year-old daughter North in a candid family photograph. However, sources close to Kim are insisting that she would never photoshop her child's appearance. The 38-year-old reality TV star has been accused of darkening her skin, shrinking of her waist, and various other picture edits. People are calling Kim out for allegedly photoshopping her daughter North by lightening her skin tone and also making her waist thinner. An Instagram account '@fakegirlsf***ya' was the first to catch the edits which were made on a recent picture that Kim had shared along with her two children. 

As reported by DailyMail, a source close to Kim shared that the controversial picture had been reposted to Kim's account directly from a fan site and she had not made any sort of edits on the picture. "Kim sometimes reposts images from her fan sites. This was one of those times. The paparazzi photo was altered via the fan site," the source shared. 
The source added that the mother of three would never change or alter the appearance of her daughter and said, "She would never photoshop North to alter her weight". In the questionable photograph, the beauty mogul can be seen crouching with one of her arms around Saint as she holds on to North's hand with the other. The picture was clicked when the family was vacationing in Bali earlier this month. 

The photograph has very obviously been edited and altered via a filter used to make the background look less green and also the children's clothes to appear less neon. The change in tone also made it seem like the skin color of the children had been altered. People have slammed Kim for altering her child's skin tone as it seems to appear lighter than usual though this change could be a result of the kind of filter that was used on the picture. In the original picture, it also looks like North's stomach is sticking out a bit more as she is standing next to her mother but in the edited picture, it looks like North's stomach had been thinned and smoothed. 
It is unclear what Kim intended with this picture as commenters chose sides. Most people were in agreement that the skin lightening was a result of the dulling of colors. One person commented saying, "She lowered the saturation. That's about it". When it came to North's stomach being edited, people who believed the edits were in absolute shock and took to expressing their sentiments. 

"Kids who are chubby are the cutest. No need to edit...gosh Kim...What's wrong with you!" one woman wrote. While another added, "Can't believe she photoshopped her daughter's stomach". Some people called Kim out for prioritizing her vanity instead of posting a picture of her children looking good. A fan commented, "She only even posted the picture because of how she looks in it. Saint isn't even looking and North doesn't look happy." 

'Cash me ousside' girl allegedly threw a drink at Iggy Azalea during Cardi B's party

If you're a fan of celebrity drama, and beef between mediocre rappers, welcome to your dream story.  In one corner, Bhad Bhabie, the 15-year-old who got famous for appearing on Dr. Phil and saying "Cash me ousside." In the other corner, Iggy Azalea, the 28-year-old Aussie with a fake American accent who got famous from the 2014 bop Fancy. The setting? The Fashion Nova X Cardi B launch party, and sorry, the charming and talented shoe-throwing Cardi B was not involved. Let's get ready to rumble!

Get comfortable, because it's a long story. At the party, Bhad Bhabie allegedly threw her drink at Iggy Azalea. Okay, scratch that, it's a pretty short story. On Instagram, Iggy posted a video, laughing about her wet hair. "What kind of Jerry Springer, what kind of whose-baby-is-this, Dr.-Phil-ass shit?" she mused. The caption on screen read, "So the Dr. Phil girl is really upset about me apparently and thought I’d fight a child. Anyway! The fashion nova party is LIT!"

Well, good for Iggy for having a sense of humor about the shenanigans. After all, Bhad Bhabie, real name Danielle Bregoli, is only 15 years old. If you're an adult, getting mad at a teenager isn't a good look, unless you want to be turned into a meme, like when Joe Budden yelled at Lil' Yachty on the Complex's online talk show Everyday Struggle. (They got into a heated argument over whether Lil' Yachty was indeed "happy all the time," as he boldly claimed. Welcome to hip-hop in 2018.)
In a follow-up tweet, Iggy, real name Amethyst Kelly, confirmed her chill attitude. "Imagine me scrambling around on the floor in a dirty night club trying to hit a teenage girl," she scoffed. "Girl. NO. I’m grown and will simply have you REMOVED and continue enjoying myself. 🙄 #YouNotSpecial Anything else from her mouth is ignored - it’s too preschool for me."

Iggy explained herself further on IG Stories, as reported by Entertainment Tonight:
"I literally was standing there taking pictures wide open no security. Felt water thrown on my wig. Turned around and saw all these people scuffling and screaming - I thought there was a fight in that section. I was confused as fuck about what was going on. Then I stood there and was like “Nah I’m not leaving from right here until she is removed” The security escorted her out.  And she logged on to the gram from the parking lot I guess to claim her clout for what I don’t know. I stayed and enjoyed the night."
Bad Baby - I mean, Bhad Bhabie - responded by releasing a clever, venomous diss track. Just kidding. She also responded on IG Stories. Apparently, this is how the new generation of rappers does beef. In a since-deleted post, Bhad Bhabie wrote, "Don’t talk shit on the internet Iggy u a bitch just mad at 15 year old outsold your ass." Then she posted two sassy messages, mocking Iggy for not dropping an album in four years, and warning her not to be two-faced.

Will Iggy and Bhabie release savage diss tracks, like Eminem and Machine Gun Kelly? Or will they sit down, and hash out their differences, like J. Cole and Lil' Pump? Will Cardi B throw shoes at them both? Stay tuned!
