Far removed from his position as the co-host of BET’s formerly popular ‘106 & Park’, AJ Calloway has gone on to become a host for Extra. Now, the syndicated TV newsmagazine has suspended AJ from his role as host following sexual assault allegations.

In 2018, Sil Lai Abrams stepped forward to name AJ Calloway as her abuser. The author and domestic violence activist alleges Calloway assaulted her following an evening of getting drinks. Providing documents and text messages to The Hollywood Reporter to affirm her intentions, Abrams insists the two were only discussing potential career opportunities.

“Do You See What You Do To Me?”

Over a period of weeks, Calloway became increasingly forward with Abrams. Even though he was married, he attempted to turn their work conversations to sex. One fateful evening in December of 2006, Calloway and Abrams met for drinks. After they left the venue, he exposed himself to Abrams while driving her home. He attempted to force her to perform oral sex. Unable to pressure her into the act, he grabbed her hand and used her to masturbate himself. Later that night, Calloway called to apologize, but Abrams had been convinced to file a police report by friends

No More Drama

Abrams published a book detailing the encounter in 2007, but she felt compelled to use pseudonyms. Calling him ‘Ray’, Abrams described Calloway as her assailant. At the time of the reveal in 2018, Warner Bros stood by their host, but now with the news of additional accusers, the entertainment monolith has suspended Calloway’s employment.

In response to the sexual misconduct allegations mounting against him, AJ’s attorney has provided a comment maintaining his innocence. Calloway’s attorney, Lisa E. Davis, says he “maintains that these unsubstantiated allegations are patently false. He vehemently denies that he ever assaulted anyone and looks forward to clearing his name.”

Warner Bros. Television released a statement to The Hollywood Reporter on their behalf.

“Upon becoming aware of allegations of sexual misconduct against AJ Calloway, we began an internal review to determine whether there has been any misconduct by Mr. Calloway on Extra and whether any employee has been victim of such misconduct. To date, we have found nothing to suggest that Mr. Calloway has ever engaged in workplace misconduct. In light of additional allegations brought to our attention, we are expanding our ongoing inquiries, and Mr. Calloway has been suspended pending further review. We take such allegations very seriously and are committed to doing everything we can to ensure a safe and inclusive workplace for all of our employees.”

Prince William Meghan Markle Catherine Middleton Prince Harry

After months of using Meghan Markle as the perfect scapegoat for tension between the royals, reports of Prince William’s infidelity have surfaced. According to multiple news outlets, the expected king has allegedly cheated with Catherine Middleton’s best friend, Rose Hanbury.

Surely his father’s son, Prince William has brought shame upon the royal family for repeating the lecherous mistake of an extramarital affair. But his indiscretions carry a twist. Instead of carrying the shame as Prince Charles did, William shifted blame onto Meghan, concocting the many negative stories that plagued media outlets himself. With this knowledge, it is now apparent why there is such distance between the sons of Princess Diana.

The marriage of Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge has allegedly been on the rocks for quite some time. But things have recently come to a head in recent months as the couple dissolved their friendship with Rose Hanbury and her husband, David Rocksavage — aka the Marquess and Marchioness of Cholmondeley. pronounced “Chumley”.

When rumors of an affair between William and Rose began circulating, Catherine immediately confronted him as the tryst took place during her third pregnancy. To quell the oncoming storm , Prince William contacted his lawyer, urging him to suppress any information that could hit U.K outlets and threatening offensive publications with legal action. In addition, media outlets that cover the royals’ goings-on began to heavily deride Meghan Markle, fueling rumors she was difficult or causing Kate’s disappointment. While news of his affair has been spreading for several weeks, it’s validity remained questioned until April 24th. Catherine Middleton returned to London last night with only her 3 children and the royal family is refusing to comment on the matter.

Bun B

When Bernard “Bun B” Freeman said “I got 20/10 vision and my trigger finger steady,” DeMonte Jackson was not listening! The iconic Houston rapper shot the armed intruder who entered his home Tuesday night.

According to the police report, DeMonte Jackson’s attempted robbery began when he approached Bun B’s southwest Houston home and rang the doorbell. Anticipating a delivery from Amazon, Bun B’s wife, Queenie, opened the door without looking to see who was on the other side and found herself staring down the barrel of a gun. Wearing a ski mask and pointing the weapon at Queenie, Jackson forced entry into the home while shouting demands.

Hearing the disturbance, Bun B quickly armed himself and made his way downstairs. Upon seeing the intruder holding his wife hostage, Bun B tried negotiating with Jackson. Fearful for her safety, he told the intruder to take their vehicle from the garage. With Queenie out of harm’s way, Bun B led Jackson to the car, where he confronted him. Exchanging gunfire in the garage, Bun B shot the intruder in the shoulder. However, Jackson escaped. Running away from the property, he laid low before seeking care at a hospital where he would later be apprehended.

DeMonte Jackson was charged with one count of burglary and two counts of aggravated robbery. Neither Queenie or Bun B sustained physical injuries.
