Woman Announced at Depp-Heard trial that Johnny Fathered Her Baby

On Monday, the Johnny Depp – Amber Heard courtroom was interrupted when a woman in the gallery stood up with a baby in her arms and announced that Depp was the father. It was during a break, so cameras were off, but Angenette Levy from the Law & Crime channel described what happened.
The woman later said she came up with the idea with her husband and the pair ‘thought it was a joke, and thought it would be funny.’

Kate Moss Expected to Testify for Johnny Depp in Trial

Kate Moss is expected to be called to the stand this week in Johnny Depp’s defamation trial against Amber Heard. The British fashion icon will reportedly testify via video link on Wednesday in the Fairfax, Virginia, courtroom. Depp’s lawyers were spotted fist-pumping a few weeks back when Heard suddenly brought up Moss during her testimony. Legal experts explained at the time that Heard mentioning Moss on the stand could give her ex-husband’s team the chance to dispel a rumor that he pushed the supermodel down a flight of stairs when the two dated in the 1990s. “That’s one mistake that [Heard] made, was bringing up Kate Moss, which potentially opened the door to [Depp’s team] bringing [Moss] on as an impeachment witness” — and Moss “saying ‘This never happened,’” said California entertainment lawyer Mitra Ahouraian. A source close to Depp told The Post: “Amber mentioned an ex of Johnny’s that clearly she felt was not supportive of him, which couldn’t be further from the truth.”

Katy Perry clears up Rumors of a Move to Kentucky

After rumors swirled that she had moved to Kentucky, Katy Perry cleared up the story.“You can’t believe everything you hear or read. You’ve got to hear it from the source, and the source is telling you no,” the pop star told Extra after the finale. “But I did spend a lot of time there because Orlando [Bloom] just wrapped filming a movie there for two months, so I was there for a month and change and I loved it. It was so beautiful to see the heart of America…Also just to be ‘Mom’ every day, all day — I love that.”                                   
Katy said she wants to return to her singer/songwriter and Nashville roots.

62% Pretend They Can’t Cook So They Don’t Have To Help

Six in 10 millennials (62%) have pretended not to know how to cook to avoid having to help. A new survey of 3,000 U.S. adults, which also found that more than half (55%) said they are often reluctant to grill. Most find ready-made meal kits to be more convenient (49%), or simply think others are better at grilling (48%). The survey also found that millennials were the most likely to grow up watching their parent or guardian cook food on a grill (69%). Nearly four-fifths (78%) also believe the student has surpassed the teacher — meaning that they believe they’ve developed better skills than that parent themselves. Regardless of generation, the average respondent takes over grilling duties from their parents at age 16, with 58% saying they’ve taught their parent how to cook certain foods on the grill. A whopping 75% of millennials have taught older generations to grill certain foods. And it’s never too early to grill. Fifty-three percent of millennials said they’ve grilled their breakfast, compared to only 24% of boomers.

Crews Remove last Functioning pay phone in new York city

Officials held a ceremony Monday as the last public pay phone stall was removed in New York City, marking what they called “the end of the pay phone era.” It may have been the last public pay phone in the city, but there are still privately-owned pay phones and four permanent, full-length “Superman” phone booths. The city began removing the pay phones in 2015 as they became obsolete and replacing them with public Wi-Fi hotspots. Since then, the city has removed thousands of pay phones across all five boroughs. In 2014, there were more than 6,000 active public pay telephones on city sidewalks. They were originally slated to be removed by 2020, but the process took longer than expected. City officials said on the website that the public pay phones, which provided free access to 911 and 311 non-emergency city services, were still used for regular calls and long-distance calls, but their usage had gone way down.

Joe Burrow says that Louisiana police tried arresting LSU players for Smoking Cigars

“We were gonna smoke all the cigars in the locker room. And we started smoking them and the cops come in because I guess you’re not allowed to smoke inside or whatever,” Burrow said on the Full Send podcast. “They started trying to arrest people in the locker room after we won the national title. We’re like, ‘What’s going? C’mon.’ This was in Louisiana. We played in New Orleans for the national title. They were trying to arrest us.”
