A Rutgers student committed suicide last week after his roommate uploaded a sex tape of him making out with another male.
According to WPIX, the freshman jumped off the George Washington bridge on Thursday, Sept. 23, after his roommate uploaded the sex tape to the Internet.
Fellow freshmen students Dharun Ravi, 18, of Plainsboro and Molly Wei, 18, of Princeton have been charged with invasion of privacy for allegedly placing a camera in 18-year-old Tyler Clementi’s room.
Ravi and Wei were charged with two counts each of invasion of privacy for using a camera to view and transmit a live image of the teen during the sexual encounter on Sept. 19.
Ravi was additionally charged with two more counts of invasion of privacy for trying to use the hidden camera to view the same student during another sexual encounter just three days later on Sept. 21.
Days before the suicide, Ravi tweeted: “Roommate asked for the room till midnight. I went into Molly’s room and turned on my webcam. I saw him making out with a dude. Yay.”
Ravi was released on $25,000 bail. He has since deleted his Twitter page. If convicted, both students face up to 5 years in prison.
According to Middlesex County Prosecutor Bruce Kaplan, it is a fourth-degree crime to collect or view images depicting nudity or sexual content of an individual without that person’s consent. The crime becomes a third-degree offense if the images are transmitted or distributed. [link]
“The university takes these matters seriously and has policies to deal with student behavior,” said spokeswoman Sandra Lanman. “Under federal law, the university cannot comment on specifics.” [link]
Here’s the cast of the next chapter in VH1’s seminal reality TV series featuring current, future or former wives, and/ or baby mamas of professional athletes (mostly the black and gullible athletes). The series is titled Football Wives.
:yawn: I’m already bored just looking at these chicks. Is one of them a tranny?
Here’s what ICE over at Icedotcom had to say about the new cast:
Now if your an avid IDC reader then you know that I love women, love sports and loved Vh1’s Basketball Wives (hey Evelyn). So it is without further ado I bring to you the cast of VH1’s Football Wives starring my baby Pilar Sanders. Now generally I wouldn’t give a rats ass bout this show but like my crush on Evelyn turned me into a yenta on Sunday nights and an eventual fan of Basketball Wives, my longstanding crush on the M!LF that is Pilar Sanders, wife of legendary two-sport athlete Deion Sanders and star of her & Deion’s Prime Time Love reality show will most likely have Football Wives on my list of guilty pleasure television courtesy of VH1. The only other notable NFL spouse joining Pilar will be Melani Ismail, wife of former Panthers/Raiders/Cowboys & Notre Dame legend Rocket Ismail. Everybody else is either married or gettin dug out with no ring by a guard or punter on the Cowboys or some UFL player meaning a n!gga could care less. VH1’s Basketball Wives airs Oct. 12th at 10:30PM EST. – ICE
If the pictures of a bloated Mariah Carey falling onstage in Singapore didn’t give us a reason to worry for her health, maybe these pictures will. Mariah is shown in a wheelchair being transported out of her hotel to a waiting car in Singapore.
As I told you earlier this week, industry insiders are whispering about the extent of singer Mariah Carey’s mystery illness. Some say Mariah’s medical problem could threaten her career. We know she isn’t pregnant, so we can only speculate as to what her medical problem could be.
According to US magazine, Mariah’s rep Cindi Berger claims Mariah twisted her ankle when she slipped and fell about 2 feet to the stage in Singapore. How did she twist her ankle so severely in that little bitty fall that she required a wheelchair?
Anyway, here’s what Cindi said:
“Mariah twisted her ankle in Singapore and should have packed more sensible shoes, but she doesn’t have any,” her rep, Cindi Berger, tells UsMagazine.com. “I’m sending her a pair of flats today.”

Rapper Young Jeezy celebrated his 33rd birthday at Butter in NYC last night, and the Hip Hop glitteratti turned out in force. Jeezy’s mixtape The Last Laugh officially dropped today. So far it’s getting mixed reviews. But the project that everyone is anticipating — Jeezy’s 4th studio album, TM 103, still has no official release date.
You know Jay Z isn’t going to miss an opportunity to get his picture taken — the attention whore that he is.
The fourth (and oldest) Bishop Eddie Long accuser has broken his silence about the alleged sexual abuse he suffered at the hands of “predator” Bishop Eddie Long.
Fox 5‘s Dale Russell flew to Colorado to speak with Jamal Parris. He met up with the former LongFellows Academy student outside a grocery store.
“You look at our eyes,” Jamal Parris said. “You hear the pain in our voice. We have no reason to lie to this man.”
“I loved him,” Parris said. “I’m always going to have love for the things that he taught me. But how he left us hurt worse than anything I ever felt in my life.”
“You finally have a father that you’ve always wanted for and always dreamed of,” Parris said. “He would just walk away from you if you don’t give him what he wants. So you end up turning into something you never thought you would be, which is now a slave to a man that you love.” Source
Jamal Parris — who is 23 — was 20-years-old when he alleges that the bishop lavished him with gifts, cash, trips and cars in return for sex. He goes on to say the bishop used him and then dumped him. Really? That’s called LIFE. People get dumped every day. You’re a grown man. Deal with it!
I hope B.J. Bernstein can come up with a better “victim” than these four. I am getting tired of these weak men who made conscious decisions to sleep with a middle aged man.
it’s become painfully clear that Benstein has no evidence other than the stories of those men — none of whom are credible. I can’t believe Fox 5 wasted plane fare on this story.
Shouts to Angela Watts (AWMedia Group), Donna Newman and Elle German for the links!
Pop star Rihanna (and her red wig) was seen leaving popular NY eatery Da Silvanos yesterday. RiRi seems to be miserable without her bestie Melissa Ford around. We also haven’t seem much of her boyfriend Matt. But that’s probably because it’s baseball season.
Afterward, Rihanna and Melody Thornton attended Drake’s after party at Greenhouse in NYC. Melody is telling friends she and Kanye are “just friends.” Can you blame her for wanting to set the record straight?
Rapper Drake performed a live concert at Radio City Music Hall in NYC last night.
Rappers Fabolous and J. Cole also attended Drake’s after party last night (though not together).

Hey Sandra I wanted to leave a comment but couldn’t cause I am not registered.
Anyway I watched the clip on your blog and I realized from the other comments that I am the only one thinking this is not beyonce at ALL. This lookalike is clearly trying to hide her face from the camera and the others around just don’t seem excited enough. Is it just me?
Please have a look at the clip again. And would she really go to visit her mom on law with her hair looking like that? I just wonder
Update II, 9:20 pm ET:
According to loyal reader MUNCHOSGIRL — who is quite diligent about disputing rumors concerning Beyonce — Jay Z’s nephew @RelCarter confirms that it is indeed his auntie Beyonce tossing her wig in the above video.
