Follow Up of the Day: False alarm: Love’s still dead.
“While we have enjoyed seven very loving, loyal and happy years of marriage, after much soul-searching we have decided to separate,” Klum said in a statement.
The supermodel’s statement went on to say that the two continue to love each other, but have grown apart. “This is an amicable process and protecting the well-being of our children remains our top priority, especially during this time of transition.”
The couple met in 2003 and got married in Mexico in 2005. They share three biological children, and have been raising Klum’s daughter from a previous relationship, Leni.
Follow Up of the Day: William Adams, the Aransas County family law judge who earned the ire of many after footage of him beating his then-16-year-old daughter Hillary surfaced, will not face charges for his actions as the five-year statute of limitations has since expired.
Hillary Adams uploaded the 8-minute video to YouTube last week, and then encouraged it to go viral by posting it to Reddit.
The horrific beating was apparently a punishment for illegally downloading music and video games online. She turned the camera on sensing that something serious was about to happen.
Rockport Police Chief Tim Jayroe said yesterday that a child abuse charge would have been likely had the evidence been made available two years ago. Hillary said her father regularly beat her, and she waited this long to post the video out of concern for retribution.
In a three-page statement released yesterday [pdf], Judge Adams claimed his daughter’s decision to expose the incident at this particular moment was directly linked to a recent conversation they had in which he threatened to cut off financial support and take away her Mercedes “if she was going to simply ‘drop out,’ and strive to achieve no more in life than to work part time at a video game store.”
According to the statement, Hillary then warned her father that, if he did that, he would “live to regret it.”
An investigation by the state’s judicial conduct commission is still ongoing, and Judge Adams could still face federal charges. He is up for re-election in three years.
You know what, even if his threat to cut her off financially and take away her vehicle, which I assume is how she gets to the aforementioned job, was the last straw, that does nothing to change the horrifying content of that video. The judge is trying to deflect attention from his own overwhelming guilt by assassinating the character of his daughter, making her out to be ungrateful and spoiled, as though that does anything to soften the fact that he was beating her fucking senseless.
Follow Up of the Day: Hey, remember Cry Baby Lane — that long-lost made-for-TV horror movie that was supposedly so scary that Nickelodeon banned it from re-airing and later refused to acknowledge its existence?
Well, a recent Reddit thread about the film revealed that at least one bootleg copy of Cry Baby Lane yet survived, and today it was uploaded to YouTube in full.
The movie’s director, Peter Lauer, told The Daily he personally felt it was best to leave it buried and forgotten, “with people wanting it and never seeing it and being disappointed by it.”
Clearly he’s just trying to avoid lawsuits from the relatives of viewers who will be frightened to death.
