Bee Gee’s Shocking News

by Fox News Bee Gees singer Barry Gibb reveals childhood abuse attempt: ‘I’ve never said this before’ Musician Barry Gibb arrives at the 57th annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles, California February 8, 2015.  (Reuters) Bee Gees singer Barry Gibb has revealed for the first time a man attempted to sexually abuse him when he was a child. The 70-year-old British artist told the Radio Times he had doubts over the years about telling his story. “I’ve never said this before, Jesus Christ, should I be saying it now?” said Gibb, as reported by The Guardian. “But there was a moment in time when a man tried to molest me when I was about 4-years-old. He didn’t touch me, but other things happened, and happened to other kids.” Related: wheel-in-big-trouble Gibb added the man was ultimately arrested. “Four years old and a policeman on your bed at 4 in the morning, interviewing you,” he described. “If that doesn’t teach you about life, nothing does. But it’s vivid for me still. I’ve never told anybody.” When asked if the incident took place at home, Gibb replied, “Those details would be unpalatable.” Related: cosby-trial-judge-denies-request-for-a-mistrial–bill-cosbys-sexual-assault-trial-explained Gibb will take to the Pyramid Stage in Glastonbury’s “legends” slot on Sunday as the only surviving member of the 1970s pop group.

One of History’s greatest Crossover Fights Set for August 26th

One of History’s greatest Crossover Fights Set for August 26th

LAS VEGAS, NV After all of the speculation, questions, and doubts, the Connor McGregor vs. Floyd “Money” Mayweather fight is officially set. The UFC champion and the undefeated boxing champion are set to fight on August 26th. The desire to see this fight has been highly anticipated all year. Someone even created a Punch-Out style animation to mockingly simulate the fight. McGregor has been trying to lure someone into the ring. He’s talked smack about Brock Lesnar, pro wrestling, every fighter he’s ever fought, Mayweather, and even Jesus. This arrogant, O’Doul’s pint-sized leprechaun said that he could beat Jesus in the octagon. Does McGregor really think he stands a prayer against the one who knocked down an entire Roman army by merely uttering the words “I am he?” Yeah, good luck with that. But in God’s mercy, He lovingly sent the boxer who loves to hug and do prom slow dances in the middle of the ring, in His stead. Related: nhl-offseason-mayhem Which leads us to the question: who will prevail, the Irish river dancing fool or the slow prom dancing fool? Related: kaepernick-compares-cops-to-fugitive-slave-patrols McGregor’s last UFC fight was his victory against Eddie Alvarez, for the lightweight title, via TKO. This fight was historic because McGregor went up a weight class to gain this title. However, another equally historic fight was his KO victory against Jose Aldo for the featherweight title because Aldo went undefeated since 2006 and has had the WEC/UFC belt since 2009. Mcgregor has only suffered three losses in his career. So as arrogant as he has been, he’s been able to back up the smack...
BREAKING NEWS Mistrial Declared in Bill Cosby Sexual Assault Case After Jury in Deadlock

BREAKING NEWS Mistrial Declared in Bill Cosby Sexual Assault Case After Jury in Deadlock

by Fox News Bill Cosby trial: Judge declares mistrial in sexual assault case after jury deadlock Mistrial declared in Bill Cosby sexual assault trial Bill Cosby’s trial on sexual assault charges ended in a mistrial Saturday after jurors failed to break a deadlock after more than 52 hours of deliberations over six days. Cosby showed no immediate reaction. After the mistrial was declared, he stood up and seemed to be distressed as he spoke to his spokesman. He then sat back down. He left the courthouse without speaking to reporters. The jury confirmed to Judge Steven O’Neill that they could not reach a unanimous decision on whether “The Cosby Show” star drugged and molested Temple University employee Andrea Constand at his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004. Prosecutors said they would retry Cosby. The 79-year-old star was accused of three counts of felony aggravated indecent assault. He faced up to five to 10 years in prison, if convicted. Related: pyongyang-torture—warmbiers-injuries-renew-focus-on-infamous-camps During the six-day trial, the jury heard Constand describe a 2004 sexual encounter with Cosby at his Philadelphia home. Constand testified on June 6th that she shot down the actor’s casual advances twice before she found herself paralyzed and unable to fight him off the night she took pills that he convinced her were safe herbal supplements. “In my head, I was trying to get my hands to move or my legs to move, but I was frozen,” Constand, a former employee of the basketball program at Temple University, Cosby’s alma mater, said during their courtroom confrontation. “I wasn’t able to fight in any way. I wanted it to stop.”...

Cosby trial: Judge denies request for a mistrial – Bill Cosby’s sexual assault trial explained

by Fox News The judge at Bill Cosby’s sexual assault trial is bristling at repeated defense requests for a mistrial as the jury asks to rehear yet more testimony on its fifth day of deliberations. Judge Steven O’Neill said Friday that he’ll let jurors work as long as they want as they try resolving a deadlock that threatened to end the case without a verdict. After a lunch break, jurors are expected to rehear testimony from accuser Andrea Constand and her mother about phone calls with Cosby. O’Neill criticized the Cosby team for what he says is a “misperception that there’s a time limit” on how long deliberations can last. Cosby lawyer Brian McMonagle argued the court was “being asked to review the entire trial” with the jury’s repeated requests to rehear testimony. Earlier Friday, Cosby thanked his fans and supporters.

Bill Cosby’s future is in the hands of the jury as defense, prosecution rest their cases

by Fox News Bill Cosby’s lawyer called accuser Andrea Constand “a liar” during his nearly two-hour long closing argument in the comedian’s sexual assault trial Monday. The prosecution countered that claim in a two-hour-plus closing argument of his own that followed. Now, it’s up to the jury. They are set to begin deliberating tonight. The star could spend the rest of his life behind bars if convicted. Cosby’s attorney Brian McMonagle argued that Constand and Cosby had a year-long consensual relationship. He admitted Cosby failed his wife Camille by having an extramarital affair, but said his client is being prosecuted now because of a media firestorm after excerpts from his lurid deposition became public. McMonagle pointed at Cosby’s wife of 53 years several times during his closing statements to emphasize his points. This is the first time Camille Cosby joined her husband in court since the start of his sexual assault trial last week. Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele then addressed the jury, calling the sexual assault trial a “very straightforward case.” “He assaulted her. Drugging somebody and putting them in position is not romantic, it’s criminal,” Steele told the court. Cosby’s defense team called just one witness on Monday and then promptly rested its case. Cosby’s team called up the detective who led the 2005 investigation into allegations Cosby drugged and violated Andrea Constand at his suburban Philadelphia home.
