Sean Penn’s Haiti Charity Paid $126,000 to Fly Him First Class

SEAN PENN travels a lot in the name of his Haitian Relief Organization charity.

And being Sean Penn, he’s not going to fly anything less than FIRST CLASS, right? So where does that money come from?

According to the HRO’s 2013 tax return, the charity itself paid $126,000 for travel in a single year, including Sean’s first-class flights. The charity says it flew Sean first class because of, quote, “his celebrity status and for consideration of his safety.”

According to tax returns from the last several years, Sean works 10 hours a week as the CEO of his charity, and is NOT paid.


The Rams Are Returning to L.A., and the Chargers Could Join Them

Yesterday, Los Angeles had zero NFL teams, and today, they have one, and maybe TWO.

The NFL owners voted 30-2 to allow the St. Louis Rams to move back to L.A. next season. Not only that, but the San Diego Chargers have the option to join them.

The Chargers haven’t decided what they’re doing yet, but if they pass on the move to L.A., then the Oakland Raiders would be invited to take their place. The city is building a $2 billion stadium complex for the teams to share, but it isn’t going to be ready until 2019.

So in the meantime, the Rams and maybe the Chargers will be at a temporary facility . . . probably the Los Angeles Coliseum, where USC plays.


David Bowie Had Liver Cancer

DAVID BOWIE’s people haven’t said what kind of cancer he had.

However, a close friend of his says it was LIVER cancer. Belgian theater director Ivo van Hove worked with Bowie on his stage musical “Lazarus”. He found out about it in November of 2014, when it was still in its early stages, but even then, it was very serious.

Still, Bowie continued writing, even on his DEATH BED. Van Hove says, quote, “I saw a man fighting. He fought like a lion and kept working like a lion through it all. I had incredible respect for that.”

It should also be known that DAVID BOWIE was a great provider. He left them about $197 MILLION.

A Fugitive Sends the Police a Selfie Because He Hates His Mugshot

45-year-old Donald Pugh of Lima, Ohio has a warrant out for failure to appear in court, and he’s a suspect in an arson case.

The cops wanted help tracking him down, so they put his mugshot on Facebook last week. Well, Donald saw it, and he HATED it. So he sent the cops a SELFIE, and told them, quote, “Here is a better photo, that one is terrible.”

A police spokesman said, quote, “He’s drawing more attention to himself, which is going to make it easier for us to locate him, because the more attention this [Facebook] post garners, the more tips are going to come in.”

For now though, Donald’s plan HASN’T backfired, because the cops are still trying to track him down.

Stupid Criminals!!!

I really feel like these guys weren’t putting their hearts into this robbery.

35-year-old Juan Bixby and 27-year-old Julian Lopez pulled up next to a guy who was fixing his bike in Loxahatchee, Florida last week, pulled a GUN, and demanded his money.

So he told them he didn’t have any money, but if they came back tomorrow, he’d give some to them. Well the two crooks actually TOOK the deal, and drove off.

The guy immediately called 911 and gave a description of their car. Cops pulled them over less than 15 minutes later, and arrested them for attempted robbery with a weapon.

Stupid Criminals!!! Here are their mugshots:



A Woman Attacks Her Fiancé Because He Once Gave the Same Ring to an Ex

A guy named Bengt Nyquist in Vero Beach, Florida recently proposed to his 43-year-old girlfriend Inga.

And Inga was going through some of Bengt’s old photos on Friday when she saw one of him and his ex-girlfriend. And she noticed the woman was wearing the same engagement ring SHE was wearing.

Yeah, it turns out Bengt took back the ring after things ended with his ex, and REGIFTED it to Inga when they got engaged.

As you might of guessed, she flipped out. She grabbed a metal piece of their bed, threw it at his face, and chased him around their place trying to punch him.

She was arrested for misdemeanor battery. There’s no word if their engagement is still on or if Bengt is going to get to give that ring to lucky woman number three.

He says, quote, “I feel like marriage isn’t for everyone. A friend of mine put it the funniest way. He said, ‘If you heard that there was a 50/50 chance of living or dying when you jump out of a plane, you probably wouldn’t go skydiving.’ There’s like a 50/50 chance of a marriage working. If it didn’t work out for you the first time, and you still survived it, you probably shouldn’t do it again.”

David Bowie Has Died

This was completely unexpected.

DAVID BOWIE died yesterday at the age of 69. He’d had cancer for a while, but kept it pretty much a secret. They didn’t say what kind. The official statement said. “David Bowie died peacefully today surrounded by his family after a courageous 18 month battle with cancer.”

His real name was David Jones, but he changed it so he wouldn’t be confused with DAVY JONES of THE MONKEES. He married the model IMAN in 1992, and they were still together. They had a daughter, and Bowie had a son from a previous marriage.

Miley Cyrus Is Changing For Liam Hemsworth

Miley Cyrus’ reunion with Liam Hemsworth has inspired her to change her wild-girl ways.

A source revealed to Radar Online that Miley has been doing everything that she can to change her image to fit into what Liam wants her to be.

Despite her efforts, no one thinks that this relationship is going to last, because you can never change who you are to fit what someone else wants you to be.

Many people around her think that this is a recipe for disaster.


Native Americans Want CBS to Not Say “Redskins” if Washington Makes the Super Bowl

The Native American group Oneida Nation sent a letter to CBS, asking that they not say “Redskins” in the extremely unlikely event that Washington makes it to the Super Bowl.

It says, quote, “That name is a dictionary-defined racial slur. We’re hopeful that CBS will honor its own venerable legacy by doing what it can to make sure the program is respectful and civil, and is not used as a platform to promote bigotry.”

It also points out that CBS sportscaster James Brown has already said the team should change its name and CBS’ Greg Gumbel and Phil Simms do not use it during their broadcasts.

This probably won’t be an issue. Of all playoff teams, only the Houston Texans have longer odds of making the Super Bowl.


Beyoncé Has Been Added to the Super Bowl Halftime Show

If COLDPLAY feels a little too, “Ehh” to headline the Super Bowl halftime show, well, things just got a bit more interesting, or fun, or entertaining.

BEYONCÉ has officially been added to the halftime lineup. It’s unclear how much time she’ll get, but you’d have to think she’d at least join them for “Hymn on the Weekend” and “A Head Full of Dreams”, since she actually appears on those songs.

“Entertainment Tonight” reports that BRUNO MARS is expected to join too, and there may be ANOTHER guest. Bruno was the headliner in 2014, and Beyoncé had the reins the year before that.

Not dynamite. Dozens of hot dogs! It’s unknown who left the bags of hot dogs at the post office.

A 73-Year-Old Is Auctioning Off His Winning Lottery Ticket . . . You’ll Get Paid Until He Dies

Forget the Powerball tonight. Winning the lottery is boring. THIS is interesting.

73-year-old Donald Magett of Kalamazoo, Michigan won a “Cash For Life” prize on a scratch-off Lottery ticket several years ago. It pays him $1,000 per month until he dies. But now, he needs more money and the slow pace isn’t cutting it. So he’s AUCTIONING OFF his winning lottery ticket.

The only catch is, it’s only going to keep paying out until he DIES. He’s 73. So you’d have to balance out how long you think he’ll be around, with how much you’re willing to spend.

The opening price for the auction is $30,000, so right there, you’d need him to be alive for at least three years just to break even after taxes. On the bright side, Donald says he’s in good health.

The auction starts at 8:00 A.M. Eastern tomorrow on the website RepoCast.com, if you’re interested.


A Drunk Driver Ate Chicken Wings While She Led Cops on a Chase

This happened last month, but the info just came out now. And since I’m hungry right now, so this story resonated with me.

57-year-old Judith Knight was at a sports bar in Brunswick Hills, Ohio a few weeks ago, watching the Cleveland Browns and naturally, that drove her to drink. It didn’t stop her from trying to drive home though.

She hit a car and kept on going, so the driver called 911. A cop tried to pull Judith over, but she wouldn’t stop. They wound up in a low-speed chase through some neighborhoods until she was foiled by a cul-de-sac. That’s when the cop saw a, quote, “brownish substance” around her mouth. At first he thought it might be dried blood, but no.

It turns out it was BARBECUE SAUCE because Judith had gotten some chicken wings to-go from the bar, and was eating them during the chase.

Stupid Criminals!!!!

And since we’re on the food theme, the cop’s name was Charles Chalupa. Who wants to go to a combination KFC/Taco Bell RIGHT NOW?
