Nick Gordon In Trouble Again — Bobbi Kristina"s Former BF Arrested For Domestic Violence…

Not the kind of news you want to see pop up again… and again… and again… But here we go one more time: Nick Gordon, the former boyfriend of the late Bobbi Kristina who has already been found "legally responsible" for her death several years ago, was arrested over the weekend for domestic violence.

But here we go one more time: Nick Gordon, the former boyfriend of the late Bobbi Kristina who has already been found "legally responsible" for her death several years ago, was arrested over the weekend for domestic violence. Related: Nick Was Reportedly Sober... And Working... Gordon, now 29 and pictured above (this weekend's mugshot in the inset), was booked in jail on Saturday and eventually charged with battery by the Seminole County Sheriff's Department. He was given a bond of $500, along with a due date to appear in court on April 6. Beyond that, authorities have been pretty tight-lipped about what led to this apparent domestic violence situation. The altercation itself allegedly involves alcohol, and Gordon's current girlfriend of just over a year, Laura Leal. Leal ended up refusing to press charges or sign any domestic violence paperwork against Gordon, however. It's still a high-profile moment, though, for a man who has now been charged repeatedly with domestic violence even years after the fact that he was found to be legally responsible for Bobbi Kristina's death.

David Copperfield Accused Of Assaulting & Drugging 17-Year-Old Model In 1988

David Copperfield is the latest celebrity to be accused of sexual misconduct. According to a report published on Wednesday, Brittney Lewis — a former model — tells TheWrap she was drugged and sexually assaulted by the magician back in 1988.

According to a report published on Wednesday, Brittney Lewis -- a former model -- tells TheWrap she was drugged and sexually assaulted by the magician back in 1988. She was 17 years old at the time of the alleged incident. The two met in September of that year when Lewis was competing in Elite Model Management's "Look of the Year" modeling contest, where the performer was a judge. Related: David Copperfield's Rooftop Pool Floods Midtown Apartment When Lewis returned home to Utah, Copperfield invited her to one of his shows in California. Because she was a minor, he asked permission from her grandmother, Patricia Burton, and assured her that Brittney would be accompanied at all times and would be staying in a separate hotel room. Burton remembers: "He said, 'Don't worry, I'll take care of her'... I believed him. He was very charming." After his show, the two went to a bar where Lewis says she saw him pour something into her glass. She recalls: "I asked, ‘What are you doing?' and he said, 'Oh, I'm just sharing."' After taking a few sips of her drink, Lewis says she blacked out but slightly remembers being carried into a cab, and him inside her hotel room where he wore a black robe with shoulder pads. Brittney then remembers him being on top of her, and kissing her with bad breath. "I remember my clothes being taken off... He was kissing my face and then I remember him starting to go down on my body with his face, and then, as soon as he started going down, I just completely blacked out." When she woke up the next morning, she remembers feeling sick and nauseous. Allegedly, Copperfield entered her room and told her: "He wanted to me know that nothing happened because I was underage... He said: 'I didn't enter you.'" Although there "was no fluid," Lewis believes he could have potentially "had a condom." Lewis ended up leaving the trip early, but before jetting out of California, she says Copperfield made her write a letter saying she was okay. A few months later, Lewis says she was contacted by Copperfield's assistant about going to his show in Utah, but she declined and said she never wanted to see him ever again. Although Lewis says she filed a report with the FBI in 2007, a spokeswoman for the organization declined to comment. Despite coming forward with her story, Brittney does not plan on pursuing a criminal or civil suit against the now-61-year-old. On Tuesday, TheWrap contacted Copperfield and his representatives but have yet to receive a response. On Wednesday, hours before the report was published, Copperfield posted the following message on social media giving support to the #MeToo movement, but also revealing what it is like to be "falsely accused." A post shared by David Copperfield (@d_copperfield) on Jan 24, 2018 at 2:56pm PST In 2007, Lacey Carroll accused Copperfield of sexually assaulting her at his house in the Bahamas, but charges were never filed. The accuser was later arrested and charged for making false sexual assault accusations against another man in Washington state. In his letter, Copperfield urges everyone to not "rush to judgement" and to "consider everything carefully." [Image via Judy Eddy/WENN.].....»»

As we previously reported, the late Bobbi Kristina's former flame was arrested on domestic violence charges for his alleged actions toward girlfriend Laura Leal. Although Gordon's lady refused to press charges or sign any domestic violence paperwork against Nick, her loved ones are sincerely worried that she'll end up like Bobby Brown's deceased daughter. Related: Rihanna Shames Snapchat For Joking About Domestic Violence In case you forgot, Bobbi Kristina suffered abuse at the hands of Gordon, thus he was found legally responsible for the music industry scion's death. Not to mention, in addition to Nick's dark past involving Whitney Houston's daughter, Leal's family has already helped Laura through one abuse scandal involving Gordon. As you likely recall, Nick has been arrested for abusing Laura once before. Nonetheless, sources close to the situation have told TMZ that, Laura wants to stay with Nick. The victim recently penned a letter to the judge begging for the authorities to drop the case against her boyfriend. In the missive, she noted that she struggles from severe anger issues due to her newly diagnosed bipolar disorder. Clearly exasperated by Laura's loyalty to the troubled man, one insider noted: "She wants this bastard to kill her." To make matters worse, it's believed that Leal has cut off contact with her family. This is a sad update, as last year, Laura turned to her family following Nick's beating. Hopefully, Nick and Laura's relationship doesn't escalate to a violent place... again. [Image via WENN.].....»»

The 67-year-old performer revealed that the hearing loss began two and a half months ago and he is having trouble hearing music. “Two and a half months ago, just before a show in Dallas, I lost most of my hearing. Although I can still hear a little, one on one, and on the phone, I can’t hear music well enough to sing. I can’t hear music well enough to sing. The lower frequencies distort violently making it impossible to find pitch,” Huey said in his statement. Lewis revealed that he has visited several experts while trying to find an answer and doctors believe he has Meniere’s disease and can’t perform again until he improves. “Therefore the only prudent thing to do is cancel all future shows,” Lewis wrote. “Needless to say, I feel horrible about this and wish to sincerely apologize to all the fans who’ve already bought tickets and were planning to come see us. I’m going to concentrate on getting better, and hope that one day soon I’ll be able to perform again.” We wish him a speedy recovery! Huey Lewis and The News cancel all 2018 performances.

As you may recall, in his statement responding to the New York Times exposé, the Hollywood exec touted his $5 million donation to USC as if that would make everything OK. Related: Harvey Blames His Brother Bob For Leaking Damaging Information He said at the time: "One year ago, I began organizing a $5 million foundation to give scholarships to women directors at USC. While this might seem coincidental, it has been in the works for a year. It will be named after my mom and I won't disappoint her." But in response to the explosive allegations, the University announced on Tuesday that it would not accept the filmmaker's contribution. A school spokesperson explained: "The USC School of Cinematic Arts will not proceed with Mr. Weinstein's pledge to fund a $5M endowment for women filmmakers." BAFTA followed suit on Wednesday by suspending the 65-year-old's membership "effective immediately." The academy denounced the defamed producer's behavior in a statement, saying: "In light of recent very serious allegations, BAFTA has informed Harvey Weinstein that his membership has been suspended, effective immediately. Whilst BAFTA has previously been a beneficiary of Mr Weinstein's support for its charitable work, it considers the reported alleged behaviour completely unacceptable and incompatible with BAFTA's values. This has led to Mr Weinstein's suspension, and it will be followed by a formal process as laid out in BAFTA's constitution. We hope this announcement sends a clear message that such behaviour has absolutely no place in our industry. BAFTA will continue to work with the film, games and television industries to improve access to rewarding and fulfilling careers in safe, professional working environments." Respect.
