15-Year-Old Boy Dies in His Sleep After ‘Surfing’ on Roof of an Uber — Leading to Driver’s Arrest

A New York Uber driver is accused of manslaughter after three teenage passengers who’d been drinking allegedly paid him to let them climb onto the roof of his moving car — and then one of them fell off and died, PEOPLE confirms.

The driver, 24-year-old Danyal Cheema, of Huntington Station, was charged Monday with second-degree manslaughter in the death of 15-year-old Ryan Mullen, of Cold Spring Harbor.

Cheema is being held in lieu of $ 200,000 bond following his arrest on Sunday. It was unclear if he’d entered a plea. His attorney, Christopher Renfroe, did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

In the incident shortly after midnight on Sept. 23, Cheema was behind the wheel of his 2010 Toyota Highlander as an Uber driver when he picked up the three teen boys in Huntington, after they had been drinking, according to the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office.

On the way to their destination, the boys allegedly offered Cheema $ 70 cash — and gave him $ 40 — if he’d let them climb onto the car’s roof at an intersection so they could “car surf” as the vehicle took off, the investigation revealed.

Mullen and a second teen then remained on the roof as Cheema drove along Cove Road, with the third boy recording them in a Snapchat video.

Mullen’s subsequent fall led to head trauma “which resulted in his death,” according to the prosecutor’s office. Although Cheema brought all three boys to their destination at a home in Huntington, Mullen “succumbed to his injuries in his sleep later that day,” the prosecutor’s office said.

“This was an incredibly bad decision by the defendant and a bad decision by the boys involved,” District Attorney Timothy Sini said in a news release. “But at the end of the day, this defendant is an adult who was contracted to safely bring those boys home and he failed to do that.”

“We have a culture right now where the mindset is, ‘How can we outdo each other?’ Particularly among young people on social media, and we often see the tragic consequences of that,” Sini said. “A lot of young people think they are invincible and that’s something we need to keep drilling in their heads that this could happen to anyone when you engage in this kind of conduct.”

He added: “In this day and age, we often encourage people to use ride sharing services because it’s a safe alternative to drinking and driving. These boys were doing that; they were drinking that night and they made the right decision to contract with a car service.”

“Unfortunately the defendant made a reckless decision and engaged in reckless conduct that caused the death of a young boy, and he will be held accountable for that,” Sini said.

In his obituary, Ryan was remembered as a “loving son” and “fierce friend.”

He “lived life so large and his time here was short,” his family wrote. “God had other plans.”

Cheema faces five to 15 years in prison if convicted of the manslaughter charge. He is due back in court on Friday.

A Deadly Trap? After Journalist Reportedly Killed in Consulate, Shocked Friends Vow to Fight for Justice

As increasingly horrific reports continue to emerge about the fate of dissident Saudi Arabian journalist Jamal Khashoggi, shocked friends of the missing Washington Post columnist are vowing to push for justice on his behalf.

“We’re fighting like hell,” Karen Attiah, Khashoggi’s editor at the Post, tells PEOPLE. “Like absolute hell.”

The 60-year old Khashoggi, a Saudi native who had been living in self-imposed exile in Virginia, vanished on Oct. 2 after walking into the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

He reportedly went there to obtain divorce papers so that he could marry his Turkish fiancée, Hatice Cengiz. But Turkish authorities believe that instead of being handed the promised papers, Khashoggi was lured there to be tortured, killed and even dismembered inside the consulate by a hit squad flown in from Riyadh, the Saudi capital.

A well-known journalist in his home country, Khashoggi — a one-time insider with the ruling House of Saud — had grown increasingly critical of the policies imposed by the country’s 33-year-old de facto ruler, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, also known as MBS.

Khashoggi fell afoul of Saudi authorities, American intelligence sources tell PEOPLE. He fled to Virginia in 2017.

“He knew he was in danger,” says David Ignatius, Khashoggi’s friend and Post colleague. “He felt he should not go back to Saudi Arabia.”

• For more on the life and sudden disappearance of writer Jamal Khashoggi, subscribe now to PEOPLE or pick up this week’s issue, on newsstands Friday.

In the United States, Khashoggi soon took up a column for the Post, where he continued to criticize bin Salman.

He was aware that his work was being translated and read overseas, colleagues say, and that his views provoked ire in some royal quarters. “He was often scared,” Ignatius says. “He was worried.”

Attiah says Khashoggi was “excited” and “proud” to have the platform of the Post.

“Still,” she tells PEOPLE, “it was painful for him to have to write about the repression in his country. He said Saudi Arabia was always harsh, but never like this.”

An impending marriage was enough to send the usually wary Khashoggi — whom friends describe as “lonely” — inside Saudi territory abroad, to the consulate in Istanbul.

What happened after he entered the building more than two weeks ago is still the subject of official dispute, though Turkish authorities, quoted anonymously in various news articles, have described a grisly end orchestrated by the Saudi government, apparently in retribution for Khashoggi’s open criticism.

Saudi authorities, meanwhile, previously denied any wrongdoing and said that Khashoggi had left the consulate that day unharmed.

It remains unclear if the crown prince had any direct knowledge of what happened to him, though some sources have reportedly said it would be unlikely he would have been unaware given his position.

Under international scrutiny and amid further damning news reports, sources told CNN and other outlets this week that Saudi Arabia was possibly preparing to concede that he had been killed in an interrogation or planned abduction gone wrong.

• Want to keep up with the latest crime coverage? Click here to get breaking crime news, ongoing trial coverage and details of intriguing unsolved cases in the True Crime Newsletter.

The case has cast a harsh light on the U.S.’s years-long, if controversial, support of Saudi Arabia. Various politicians, including those in the Trump administration, have sounded their concern. (Khashoggi was a legal U.S. resident.)

While officials scramble to address what has become an international crisis, the missing man’s friends and colleagues agonize over his fate — and vow to find answers.

“I hope that this story turns out to have a better outcome, but with this much time and no answers, it seems increasingly unlikely that he is alive,” Attiah says. “I hope I’m wrong.”

Says Ignatius: “I’m hoping and praying, but more and more it’s looking like he was killed and in a horrible way.”

Khashoggi’s Post colleagues remember a tall man who was amiable and engaging, with a “sweet moon face” and a “gentle” spirit.

On his values, though, he could be stubborn.

“He had an inability compromise,” Ignatius says. “He believed in telling the truth. Some people don’t know how to compromise. He was one of them.”

In the wake of his vanishing and reported death, Attiah says, she is re-reading Khashoggi’s columns that she herself edited.

“He put himself in the feelings of other prisoners sitting in cells,” she says. “Now that we’re all imagining what was going through Jamal’s mind, I wonder: Did he overestimate how safe he was?”

Attiah keeps going back to the day Khashoggi walked into the consulate and her first inkling that something wasn’t right.

“That morning I was brushing my teeth and I thought, ‘I haven’t talked to Jamal in a while,’ ” she recalls.

She senses now that she will never talk to Khashoggi again.

“The truth is Jamal is not here,” Attiah tells PEOPLE. “The truth is he went into the embassy and never came out.”

It’s a devastating reality — and a motivating one. The Post has published excerpts from some of Khashoggi’s columns on a tribute page to the missing writer.

“If anything, this has energized me to continue this mission,” Attiah says. “Whoever did this, they can’t kill a mission.”

Mom Suffers Severe Bruises After Protecting Baby from Hail Storm: ‘I Covered Her with My Body’

An Australia mom was covered in black and blue bruises this week after she and her young daughter became trapped in a hail storm and she had no choice but to shield the baby with her body, reports say.

Fiona Simpson, 23, told The Project that she wasn’t aware of the weather forecast in Queensland before she decided to take her grandmother and 4-month-old daughter, Clara, to a coffee shop on Thursday. When severe rain started picking up, Simpson pulled over to the side of the road, she wrote in a Facebook post. That’s when it started to hail.

“The back window, where Clara was, the whole back window just blew out … glass went everywhere through the car,” the told The Project. “So I took off my seatbelt, climbed through the back and just laid on top of her.”

The hail pelted Simpson’s back, leaving her with bruising to her back, arms and her face. She shared photos of her damaged skin in the Facebook post, writing, “I covered my infant with my body to stop her from getting badly injured.”

“I know I’ll be sore tomorrow,” she added in the post. “I’m just so relived that my daughter and grandmother are alright.”

She added that she’s learned her lesson and will never drive in a hail storm again. In a follow-up post, Simpson wrote that she and Clara were home safe Thursday night. Her grandmother is recovering at a hospital.

“At the end of the day, all that matters is that we’re alive,” she told the Australian Broadcasting Corp. “A car can be replaced and bruises can heal, and we’re just all safe right now.”

Simpson told The Project that Clara only suffered a few bumps and bruises. After the incident, she took the baby to the hospital where Clara was “happy and smiling and giggling and playing.”

“She’ll be alright. She hasn’t even really noticed, to be honest,” Simpson said of her daughter. “We’ll all be fine. We’re tough.”

Kay Jewelers Launches Investigation Into Service Policies After Customer Accuses Company of Stealing Diamonds

Kay Jewelers is launching an internal investigation into diamond servicing practices after an Illinois woman accused the jewelry store of stealing her diamond engagement ring when she took it in to get serviced. 

Requitta Darshae East slammed the jewelry chain in a lengthy Facebook post that has since gone viral with over 1,500 shares, claiming that Kay Jewelers tried to give her the wrong ring and failed to track down her actual one. Since her post, hundreds of other Kay shoppers shared their own similar stories in the comments on Facebook. This isn’t the first time the retailer has faced these allegations: A 2016 Buzzfeed exposé also uncovered a similar case of a woman whose $ 4,299.99 diamond was swapped with a different stone when she brought it in for a repair.

Now, Kay Jewelers’s parent company Signet Jewelers — which also owns Zales, Jared the Galleria of Jewelry, H.Samuel, Piercing Pagoda and more — is working to rectify the situation by launching an internal investigation and working with Darshae East directly to resolve the situation and address her specific concerns.

In an exclusive statement to PEOPLE, a representative for Signet Jewelers said: “We’ve been working diligently on the customer complaint you reported on to understand the underlying concerns. I’m pleased to share that we reached a resolution that has satisfied the customer and we continue to work to resolve other concerns that were posted in connection with her post.”

In an effort to understand the concerns, Signet has launched an internal investigation: “Our goal is to treat all customer concerns with a high level of integrity, seriousness, and care. Once we become aware of a customer complaint, we run it to ground until a resolution has been reached. We are continuously re-evaluating our policies and practices to ensure we are providing the highest levels of service at all points of the repair journey. Like all customer complaints, we have launched an investigation into this particular matter and remain in close contact with the customer in question as we work toward a resolution.” 

As for what the internal investigation entails, a representative said: “The internal investigation retraces every touchpoint of the customer’s jewelry journey. The customer’s jewelry stays within our jewelry Design and Service Centers or, is shipped to the manufacturer that created the item. We have 241 Design & Service Centers internally, with 2,000+ employees are skilled artisans held to our exact standards.”

Representatives from the company also detailed the servicing process, writing in the statement: “Our policies and procedures ensure that Signet has the right skilled people to do the right skilled work to treat each of our customer’s pieces with care and professionalism.” 

Signet also noted that work is completed at multiple touchpoints: “Virtually all of our work is shipped to and cared for by Signet’s jewelry artisans at our 241 Design and Service Centers, and two Signet manufacturing centers. A small percentage of work is completed by expert Signet-approved manufacturers and specialists. All packages containing customer jewelry are closely tracked and monitored throughout the process by a third-party as part of our chain of custody process.” 

There are also three phases of servicing, they say, (1) take-in to log the details of the piece, (2) inspection upon completion to confirm repairs have been done, and (3) delivery to make sure it satisfies the customer. At that point, the company says it “performs a side-by-side comparison of the original photo to the repair image under a Digital Gemscope, obtains a customer signature expressing 100% satisfaction with the quality of the repair work, and provides a six month guarantee on the repair workmanship.”  

The company noted that employees who handle jewelry are required to participate in ongoing training, which begins with multiple training systems within the first 180 days of employment.

“To ensure that our entire repair team intimately understands our process and policies, the majority of our leadership has been promoted from within the Company. Every one of our Design and Repair Service center managers and leaders have deep experience as jewelers, each with a high level of training and relevant accreditations,” representatives for Kay Jewelers said.

Darshae East described her experience in detail on Facebook.

“Where do I begin…?? There are so many layers to this,” Darshae East began her post. “July 2nd, 2018 – I take my wedding ring (both the engagement ring and band) to Kay Jewelers In River Oaks Mall to have it serviced. My ring is white gold, which needs to be dipped in rhodium to keep it from yellowing. Anyway, I take it in, the employee is supposed to check the diamonds before sending it out to have it dipped. Oddly enough, the diamond checkers aren’t working. She looks at the ring under a microscope and says that the diamonds look fine. Sends the ring out and says that the repair will take about 2 weeks to complete.”

“I receive a call from an employee at the store about 2 weeks later. My ring is back, but apparently I have two chipped diamonds in my center stone that need to be replaced. (Isn’t that what was supposed to be checked before the ring was sent out in the first place??” FYI: There are NO chipped diamonds indicated on the receipt I received on July 2nd.) She asks if its ok to go ahead and send the ring to corporate for repairs. Of course it is. So she sends it back. She tells me that it will take about 8-10 weeks for repair.”

She continued, “Fast forward 8-10 weeks… I receive a call on a Friday from Kays, “Hello Mrs. East, your repair is back in the store.” I get to the store only to find that the ring that was returned is NOT MINE. I explain to the employee (who happens to be the store manager) that the ring is not mine and proceed to show her pictures. She looks at both rings and agrees that the ring is not mine. She tells me that she will call corporate on Monday to figure out what happened.”

After going back and forth to the mall store multiple times to pick up her ring, at the final visit, the employees tried to give her a ring that looked like her own, but in fact, was not hers.

“Are you ready for this?? I make my way to the store only to find that the ring is…. (you guessed it) NOT MINE,” she wrote. “Not only is the ring not mine, but it is the exact same ring that I went to pickup the first time, only now its engraved…!!”

Darshae East alleged that not only had her engagement ring been taken, but her mother’s LeVian diamond ring had been too.

“To top this all off, the day I dropped off my ring, July 2nd, 2018, I also dropped off my mom’s $ 4,000 chocolate Levian diamond ring. We haven’t received that ring back either,” she wrote.

According to Darshae East, instead of returning her original ring, a representative from the jeweler called and offered her the cost of the ring, plus an additional $ 650, which she called “absolutely not enough.”

She added, “In my opinion, there is a way to rectify any and every situation. Kay Jewelers has failed miserably to do so. This is NOT OKAY. And they keep insisting that the rings were NOT stolen!! SO where are they!?!?!!?! What really happened?!?!?!”

2-Month-Old Nearly Loses Toes After Strand of Mom’s Hair Cuts Off His Circulation for Hours

A 10-week-old boy is recovering after nearly losing four of his toes when a strand of his mother’s hair became tangled on his foot, cutting off the baby’s circulation for at least 12 hours, his mother says.

“It was a horrible experience,” Alex Upton, 26, said of the ordeal that landed her infant son, Ezra, in the hospital last month.

Upton, of Paignton, England, said she was awakened by Ezra’s cries, and became confused when the baby wouldn’t drink any milk. Then, Upton said, she noticed that four toes on Ezra’s foot were red and swollen.

The concerned mom of two looked closer and saw that a single strand of her long, brown hair had become wrapped around his toes, and was cutting off the baby’s blood circulation.

“It must have been on there for 12 to 14 hours because I only noticed it in the morning,” Upton said. “I pulled at it and realized how tightly it’d wrapped around his toes. It’d tangled around three or four of them. I felt awful.”

Upton tried for more than 15 minutes to remove the tangled hair, noting that she used a pair of tweezers to ultimately cut the strand away. She took the boy to a local hospital where a doctor gave her antibacterial cream for Ezra’s damaged toes.

Upton said she feared that Ezra’s toes would have been removed had she not found the hair in time.

“I’m normally really safety conscious with the kids, but I had never expected this to happen to us,” she said, noting that Ezra is back to his “normal” self.

“My advice to any parents would be when you’re changing or putting on socks, or even getting them out of the bath, check thoroughly and make sure you turn clothing inside out first to remove any stray hair.”

A hair tourniquet can occur when babies even just a strand of hair ends up in places like a diaper, or sock without a parent noticing, according to Today. The strand can wrap around a baby’s toe, finger, or umbilical stump so tight that it can cut through the skin and cut off blood circulation.

“Hair easily gets stuck in things when they’ve been in the washing machine too, so it’s important to check,” Upton said.

Grandma Breaks Into Happy Tears After Meeting Her New Dog for the First Time

Pooches have a powerful sway over one’s emotions, as Shirley Lann knows.

The 84-year-old grandmother lost her beloved dog of 14 years one month ago, reports NBC4i.com. The dog’s death was especially hard on her since Lann shared the canine with her late husband.

To Lann’s family it was obvious there was a hole in the woman’s life without a furry friend, so her loved ones decided to help her out.

After searching a local shelter, they found the perfect pup — a Lhasa Apso named Sammy.

The family surprised Lann with the new addition at a medical rehabilitation center, where Lann was staying to recover from some recent health problems.

Her grandson, Matthew McVey, captured the first meeting on camera and posted the video to Twitter.

“My grandma lost her dog that she’s had for the past 14 years about a month ago (she was extremely close with her since it was my late grandfather’s dog too) and hasn’t been the same since she passed. Today my mom surprised her with Sammy,” McVey posted along with the clip.

In the video, Lann breaks into happy tears the moment Sammy steps into the room. Soon the fluffy pup is in her arms and Lann hugs Sammy lovingly to her chest.

McVey told Inside Edition the pair, who became fast friends, will be living together once Lann finish her recovery and moves back home.

Geoffrey Owens Calls Tyler Perry’s Job Offer ‘Generous’ After He’s Forced to Quit Trader Joe’s

Geoffrey Owens is feeling the love.

The former Cosby Show actor expressed his gratitude for the amount of support he’s received after the world learned he was working at a Trader Joe’s grocery store between acting gigs.

“It’s been surreal,” he said on Good Morning America. “It’s been nonstop contact and emails, phone calls, texts and interviews. It’s actually bizarre — a lot of fun though.”

Last week, the Daily Mail and Fox News published photos — snapped by a shopper — of Owens bagging groceries at a Trader Joe’s in New Jersey.

Owens, who worked at the grocery store for 15 months, first took the job because he wanted “flexibility” in order to stay in the entertainment business; he’s since quit over all the attention.

Following the photos going viral, filmmaker Tyler Perry offered Owens, 57, a job on an OWN drama.

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

“#GeoffreyOwens I’m about to start shootings OWN’s number one drama next week! Come join us!!!” Perry tweeted.

“I have so much respect for people who hustle between gigs,” he continued. “The measure of a true artist.”

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Owens said he was touched by the offer.

“It’s certainly very generous of him,” said Ownes. “To even just put that out there is very encouraging.”

And while Owens, who played Elvin Tibideaux on The Cosby Show from 1985-92, said he was “really devastated” at first after the photos came out, he has now seen the humor in the situation.

“I never would have imagined this in my wildest dreams,” he said. “What’s a way to get publicity? Take a job at Trader Joe’s!”

Rory McIlroy storms off the course after a 66

NORTON — It’s not often a golfer shoots 66 and storms off the course in a huff, declining all media requests. Yet that’s how Rory McIlroy handled his infuriating conclusion to an otherwise spotless day. Through 15 holes, the star from Northern Ireland was 6 under par, knocking on the door of the tournament lead. Things soured with his tee shot on the par-3 16th, which ricocheted off some rocks below the green and bounded into the water. McIlroy was miffed, mouthing “wow” in the direction of his caddie. “Yeah, [I] hit it good,” he remarked, placing the blame on his club selection. His troubles continued to cascade on the 17th green.

Nevada Mom Who Reported 3-Year-Old Son Missing Is Arrested After Boy’s Body is Found in Park

One day after a Las Vegas mom reported her 3-year-old son missing from a park, police have arrested the mom and the child’s father after finding the boy’s dead body, PEOPLE confirms.

Authorities called off the search for Daniel Theriot after they discovered his body Monday in a remote area near Lake Mead National Recreation Area, Las Vegas Metro Police Homicide Lt. Ray Spencer told reporters at a Monday press conference.

Neither the 20-year-old mother nor the child’s 40-year-old father, whom authorities identified as the woman’s boyfriend, were immediately named. But both could face potential murder charges as well as child abuse charges after authorities located the victim’s 2-year-old sibling and gave the sibling to Child Protective Services, Spencer said.

Police earlier reported that the blond, blue-eyed Daniel was last seen about 8:45 a.m. Sunday, according to social media posts from the department seeking the public’s help.

The mother said she’d been in Sunset Park with her son and was using her phone when the boy wandered off. But when no other witnesses could corroborate seeing the woman and her son together at the park, police dug deeper into her story, Spencer said.

He declined to reveal anything about how police discovered the body or how the child died, but did say “there was nothing accidental about it.”

He also said that authorities believe Daniel may have been dead at least 12 hours before he was reported missing.

He said the parents have a criminal history but had not previously been investigated by child welfare workers.

“Having children is stressful,” he said. “Having toddlers is stressful. Having babies is stressful.”

“If you find yourself in a situation where you cannot care for your child, you can take your child to a fire station, you can take your child to a hospital, but this is absolutely — this is hard to deal with,” he said.

It could not be determined if they’d obtained an attorney.

In her next Story installment, McHugh — who gave birth to son William “Billy” Christopher almost four months ago, on April 10 — posted a screenshot of a direct message from a user who wrote, “You’re a Mother now. Gross, tattoo and all.”

The mother of one didn’t miss a beat in her reply, writing back, “Not as gross as trolling” with a waving-hand emoji.

McHugh has retained a sense of humor about her body since she and Stamos, 54, announced they were adding to their family. (The couple tied the knot in February and honeymooned at one of their favorite places: Walt Disney World.)

Eight days before baby Billy’s arrival, his mama shared a video of her baby bump on Instagram that featured a very special guest: R2-D2.

“Oh, hey R2!” McHugh, dressed in an R2-D2 print dress, said to the astromech droid before it responded with its signature beeping sounds. Quipped the model and actress as she cradled her bump, “No, I did not swallow BB-8!”

Demi Lovato Breaks Silence After Overdose and Hospitalization: ‘I Will Keep Fighting’

Demi Lovato has broken her silence for the first time following her overdose on July 24.

“I have always been transparent about my journey with addiction. What I’ve learned is that this illness is not something that disappears or fades with time. It is something I must continue to overcome and have not done yet,” she wrote on Sunday in a message shared on her Instagram account.

“I want to thank God for keeping me alive and well,” she added, before praising her fans for standing by her through this difficult time.

“To my fans, I am forever grateful for all of your love and support throughout this past week and beyond. Your positive thoughts and prayers have helped me navigate through this difficult time,” she remarked.

Lovato’s note came one day after sources told PEOPLE that the 25-year-old “Sorry, Not Sorry” singer has agreed to enter a drug treatment center following her release from the hospital, where she has been for the past 12 days.

“Demi is well enough to leave the hospital this weekend. She has agreed to rehab and will go straight to an in-patient facility,” a source explained. “She wants to be sober. She wants to get help. She understands that it will take a lot of work and commitment to stay healthy, but this is what she wants.”

RELATED: Demi Lovato Has Agreed to Enter Rehab: ‘She Understands the Severity of Her Overdose’ Says Source

In her note, Lovato also went on to “thank my family, my team, and the staff at Cedars-Sinai who have been by my side this entire time.”

“Without them I wouldn’t be here writing this letter to all of you,” she explained.

“I now need time to heal and focus on my sobriety and road to recovery. The love you have all shown me will never be forgotten and I look forward to the day where I can say I came out on the other side,” she added.

“I will keep fighting,” she continued, adding a heart emoji.

Lovato was rushed to the hospital on the morning of July 24 following the incident at her Hollywood Hills home. Her publicist released a statement that evening confirming Lovato “is awake and with her family who want to express thanks to everyone for the love, prayers and support.”

RELATED VIDEO: Demi Lovato’s Six Years of Sobriety Was a ‘Fight Every Single Day’: Source

“Her whole family and Wilmer are just there to support her through recovery,” a source told PEOPLE last week, describing the singer’s support system as she continued her recovery process.

“Wilmer has spent hours at the hospital with Demi every day,” a second source added. “He seems very concerned about her.”

A source previously told PEOPLE the 38-year-old actor, who dated the singer for six years before their split in June 2016, rushed to Lovato’s side on July 25. He was also seen visiting Lovato again on July 26, when a photo of him at the hospital emerged.

RELATED: Demi Lovato Is ‘Getting Better’ as Ex Wilmer Valderrama Spends ‘Hours’ with Her Every Day: Sources

Lovato has long battled addiction, mental illness and disordered eating.

The Disney Channel alum entered treatment in 2010, where she received professional assistance for bipolar disorder, bulimia, self-harm and addiction. Lovato relapsed after she left the treatment center, then entered a sober living facility for a year.

But even after treatment, insiders say she still struggled with her private pain. “Demi was never really clean and sober from all of her demons,” a Lovato source previously told PEOPLE. “She has been fighting depression and anxiety for quite some time — and is still in such a dark place. She was sober for a while, but not completely sober for six years.”

In March, Lovato revealed she celebrated six years of sobriety, but three months later, in June, she released a new song, “Sober,” in which she suggested that she had relapsed.

Luann de Lesseps Will Leave Rehab After 3 Weeks for Cabaret Dates Before Outpatient Treatment

Luann de Lessepsstay in rehab won’t be affecting her upcoming Countess and Friends cabaret dates.

The Real Housewives of New York City star announced on Saturday that she would be returning from the alcohol treatment facility after three weeks to take the stage for her acclaimed show next month.

“Thank you so much for all of your support,” de Lesseps, 53, wrote on Instagram, captioning a video of the cabaret. “I wanted you to know I’m doing great and I hope you’ll come and see me. … Looking forward to being back on stage!!!”

De Lesseps is scheduled to take the stage at The Paramount in Long Island, New York, on Aug. 4 and then again at the Music Box Theater at The Borgata in Atlantic City, New Jersey, on Aug. 24.

After her cabaret, “she will continue her out-patient treatment” before returning to film the next season of the Bravo series, a source close to the star tells PEOPLE.

Says the insider: “Luann feels a lot better. Bravo has been so supportive.”

PEOPLE broke the news exclusively on July 16 that she had returned to rehab for a second time, with costar Bethenny Frankel calling the decision “brave and honest.”

In turn, she missed the taping of the RHONY season 10 reunion.

“This weekend, Luann was surrounded by her girlfriends and decided — with their support — that in light of recent circumstances, it is the healthiest choice for her not to attend Tuesday’s reunion taping so that she can continue in her healing process,” said Frankel, whom de Lesseps authorized to speak on her behalf. “Luann is now surrounded by a core group of people who truly have her best interests at heart and who are working to make sure she gets the help she needs.”

Added the network in a statement: “Bravo supports Luann’s decision to focus on her health. She is part of the Bravo family and we continue to stand by her as she copes with this challenging situation. At this time, we hope everyone will respect her privacy.”

It’s been a tough year for de Lesseps.

The Countess was arrested in the early morning hours of Dec. 24 and released on her own recognizance that same day after allegedly attacking a police officer in Palm Beach, Florida. She recently struck a plea deal in the case, and will avoid jail time.

After her arrest, de Lesseps — who had gotten married to ex-husband Tom D’Agostino in Palm Beach on the previous New Year’s Eve before their divorce seven months later — released a statement, saying, “This was my first time in Palm Beach since my wedding, and being here brought up long-buried emotions. I want to offer my sincere apologies to anyone I might have offended with my behavior. I am committed to a transformative and hopeful 2018.”

RELATED VIDEO: Luann de Lesseps Says Her Arrest Cost Her Friends and Boyfriends

Prior to her return to rehab, news broke that her first husband, Alexandre de Lesseps, her daughter, Victoria de Lesseps, and son, Noel de Lessepsfiled a lawsuit against her over an $ 8 million house sale. According to court documents obtained by The Blast, she breached a stipulation of settlement in her divorce by failing to create a trust “for the benefit of her two children.”

The source close to mother of two said that lawsuit was a driving factor in her heading to rehab. 

“Due to the trauma of being sued by her kids and ex husband, Luann decided to set the reset button and check herself into rehab,” the insider said. “She read about it in the press which was devastating and after that, needed to work on herself and digest everything and be self-reflective.”

“The lawyers are speaking on both sides and Luann is hoping for a speedy resolution because she loves her children very much,” the source added.

The Real Housewives of New York City airs Wednesdays (9 p.m. ET) on Bravo.

David Spade Reveals He Stopped Talking to His Absentee Father After Becoming a Dad Himself

Becoming a parent changed David Spade‘s life — and his own family dynamics.

In his newly released audiobook, A Polaroid Guy in a Snapchat World, the actor and comedian opens up about how his relationship with his father Wayne, who goes by the nickname Sam, changed after he welcomed his own child, daughter Harper, with former Playboy Playmate Jillian Grace in 2008.

“This one’s going to be a little tricky — this is a chapter about my dad, and the way that it fits into this audiobook is I’m a dad now,” he says. “And the difference — and why it caused some complications with my own dad — is because he was sort of a ne’er-do-well, which is putting it mildly. I think f—up is more on the nose.”

Spade, 54, describes his father as “cool and funny,” but also “a bit of a skirt-chaser, times a thousand million,” and “a bit of boozy Suzy.” When he was 4 and his brothers Bryan and Andy Spade were 8 and 6, respectively, Spade says his father suddenly vanished from their family home in Michigan.

Growing up, Spade says he saw his father about two or three times a year.

“We’d be sitting at the doors with our bags because he would call us and say he wanted to see us,” says the actor. “What I didn’t realize back then was that it was a control thing. We never had his phone number. He would call us when he felt like it.”

Nevertheless, the actor says the duo maintained a relationship and even moved in together in Arizona at one point. But years later, when Spade became a father himself, everything changed.

“I have a daughter now, and she came out of a situation with a girl I was dating and it was not planned,” Spade says. “And I get angry, because my brothers and I were planned. Now, I’m so happy that I have a daughter and she’s the best thing in my life, but I couldn’t picture my daughter being sick and calling me and me not answering.”

“Or just calling her without any way for her to call me,” he explains. “That would be too much, it would be too rough. So when I had her, I got this new tidal wave of resentment towards my dad because of his irresponsible behavior and manipulative mean streak. So I stopped talking to him.”

“I know it sounds crazy, but I just thought, ‘Holy s—. You really played your cards the way you did when we were kids,’ ” Spade continues. “I mean, I like to have fun too, but it can’t be 24/7 and literally nothing else. The only thing my dad really did was give me an excuse to be nuts. I can always cry and go, ‘It’s my dad’s fault. He left me when I was 4! Now I’m crazy.’ ”

Though he has not divulged any recent details of his co-parenting relationship with Grace, Spade posts photos and videos of Harper on Instagram and sometimes shares sweet anecdotes about her while appearing on talk shows. In 2015, he joked about navigating the ropes of parenthood while appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

“I’m new at this — how long ’til I can school her in tic-tac-toe?” he said. “Because I am really good at it, but I’m faking it so she can win. But now I’m getting frustrated because she thinks I’m dumb. She laughs so hard when she wins and then I think, ‘Well, I could beat you.’ I want to say that, but I don’t.”

“I think when she turns 6, I’m really going to turn it on,” Spade quipped. “I’ll start really winning a lot. I’m going to sweep every category.”

17-Year Old Az. Girl Goes Missing After She Was Heard Screaming — and Boyfriend, 24, Is Suspect

Authorities are searching for a 17-year-old Arizona girl who was last heard from when her brother heard her screaming last Friday afternoon, according to a news release from Phoenix police.

The brother of Rosa Garcia-Acosta then spotted a grayish white SUV-type vehicle driving away from their family’s house, according to the release.

Four days later, authorities continue to believe that Garcia-Acosta, whom they describe as an “endangered juvenile,” was abducted and may be headed to Mexico in the company of 24-year-old Luis Fernando Morales, according to a police news release.

“The suspect is her boyfriend,” Phoenix police spokesman Sgt. Armando Carbajal tells PEOPLE.

“There is a history of controlling behavior on the part of Luis,” police said in a statement.

Morales, at 6-foot-4-inches and 265 pounds, stands almost a foot taller than Garcia-Acosta and is twice as heavy. Authorities say the teen girl is 5-feet-5-inches tall, weighs 130 lbs. and has brown hair and brown eyes.

She was last seen at the family’s residence near 75th Avenue and Camelback Road in Phoenix.

Former NBA Player Tyler Honeycutt Found Dead After Shootout with Police: Reports

Former NBA and UCLA basketball player Tyler Honeycutt was found dead on the scene Friday in Southern California after a shootout with police, members of his family tell ABC-7. He was 27.

According to Los Angeles Police Department, officers “assigned to Van Nuys Division responded to a radio call of a Man with a Gun in the area of Riverside Drive & Tyrone Avenue” at around 5 p.m. ET.

After arriving at the scene, an officer-involved shooting occurred as “they made contact” and were “communicating” with “the suspect, a male in his 20’s.”

“The suspect fired a shot out of the residence and officers returned fire,” the LAPD said.

Neither the LAPD nor the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner Coroner would verify to PEOPLE that Honeycutt was the deceased suspect. The late athlete’s family, however, made the confirmation to ABC-7.

That network also reports that the shootout continued for several hours, during which the suspect barricaded himself in the residence.

The LAPD went on to announce that while no officers were injured, after the SWAT team entered the home, they found the man unresponsive and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

“Investigations from our Force Investigation Division are at scene conducting a thorough investigation and we will provide more details as they become available,” the LAPD added.

Honeycutt was drafted into the NBA in 2011 by the Sacramento Kings.

After two seasons he was traded in February to the Houston Rockets, before being released from the team the following month.

He went on to play overseas, most recently for the Russian team Khimki.

Grieving Dad’s Words of Love After Son Was ‘Lured’ Into Woods in Rape and Murder: ‘I Will Always Honor Him’

In the wake of what authorities described as his 16-year-old son’s brutal rape and murder at the hands of a longtime friend, Washington dad Benjamin Eastman Jr.’s repeated message has been one of “love and togetherness.”

“I want thank the community and friends for all they have done for my family,” Eastman, who goes by “B.J.,” posted Thursday on Facebook, adding that words could not “explain the love feel right now.”

“There’s no way could ever get through this without it,” he wrote. “I would like everyone to remember my son how they want to but most of all how he has made our community and other communities far and wide stop and forget about judgment and hate.”

“Our community is full of love and togetherness right now,” he concluded his post. “My son made the world a better place. He continues to do so and I will always honor him for that. I ask that we all focus on that.”

Prosecutors say it’s too early in the case to discuss a possible motive in the beating death of Benjamin “Ben” Eastman III a week after his birthday — but the details released so far have attracted international attention.

Meanwhile, his community in southwestern Washington has drawn closer together in the shadow of such a vicious crime.

“When you have a county as close-knit and tight as Lewis and a town like Randle, which is even smaller, a tragic incident like this is going to impact everybody,” Lewis County Prosecuting Attorney Jonathan Meyer tells PEOPLE.

RELATED: Slain Boy’s Father Sat Front Row in Court to Face Accused Murderers — ‘I Wanted Them to Look at Me’

Charging documents previously obtained by PEOPLE show how, according to investigators, Ben was tricked into going in the woods sometime after texting early on June 24 with another 16-year-old boy, Benito Marquez, a friend and classmate who had known Ben for years.

Marquez and his older brother, 21-year-old Jonathon Adamson, “lured” Ben “under the guise of a camping trip,” prosecutors said in a probable cause affidavit.

There the pair allegedly carried out an assault they had planned together: striking Ben for some “20 to 45 minutes” and kicking him more than 100 times. During the attack, Ben was sexually assaulted with a stick, according to the affidavit.

Adamson and Marquez beat him in the head with a large rock, just to make sure he was dead, authorities believe.

Finally, they allegedly buried his body on the property of a relative where it was discovered three days later, after Ben was reported missing by his father. His shallow grave was marked with a homemade cross of sticks.

• Want to keep up with the latest crime coverage? Click here to get breaking crime news, ongoing trial coverage and details of intriguing unsolved cases in the True Crime Newsletter.

Marquez, who had seemingly posted on Facebook asking for help finding Ben before his body was discovered, was an early subject of the investigation, according to authorities. But he and Adamson then allegedly fled the county, traveling some 200 miles east, before being found by the state patrol on June 29, the probable cause affidavit states.

They were each interviewed by police and subsequently charged with first-degree rape and murder as well as tampering with physical evidence and unlawful disposal of remains, the affidavit states.

Detention records confirm they remain in custody in Lewis County in lieu of $ 10 million bond.

They have not entered pleas and an attorney representing them declined to comment to PEOPLE. They are scheduled to return to court on Thursday.

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

While B.J., Ben’s dad, has spoken out about the suspects and sat front row in court at their first hearing, on Monday, he has largely kept the focus on his boy.

“I want everyone to remember the love we feel for each other,” he posted on Facebook Friday, following a vigil for Ben. “My son will live in our hearts.”

He also offered this: “Remember to smile or say hi to a stranger.”

Speaking to local TV station KOMO earlier this week, B.J. said, “It’s easy to get caught up in the negative aspect of this, but I remember my son and his smile.”

“There is evil people out there,” B.J. said then. “I don’t know what makes them tick. I don’t want to know. I’m loved and my son was loved and that’s all I’m about.”

Prosecutor Meyer tells PEOPLE Ben’s death — the violence and intimacy of it — is “hard to put into words.”

“Ben was a nice kid from a good family,” he says.

Others who knew the teen have also paid tribute to his love of the outdoors and sports, especially the Miami Dolphins, and his loyalty and light spirt.

“You’d be in a bad mood and he’d just walk in — you’d just be mad as mad as you could be and he’d just crack a smile and make you giggle just over anything, always,” Ben’s brother Derek Dunaway told KOMO.

“He really liked to stand up for his friends,” Principal Chris Schumaker told the Daily Chronicle after a vigil Tuesday night at Ben’s school, where he was a rising junior.

“A lot of the time, his friends would get in trouble because of his shenanigans and somehow he was able to kind of sidestep getting caught. So then towards the end he would kind of say, ‘Mr. Schumaker, it was kind of me, I deserve the detention,’ ” the principal recalled. “And I would say, ‘No, you know they did the crime, they get the time.’ He tried really hard to plea-deal consequences his friends earned. But in the end, I would just say ‘Ben, go back to class it’s okay. They’ll get through it, you’ll get through it. There’s always tomorrow.’ ”

After signing Kentavious Caldwell-Pope to a one-year, $ 12 million deal (a sensible move), the Lakers continued by signing Lance Stephenson, one of James' biggest rivals, to a one-year, $ 4.5 million contract. They then added center JaVale McGee to a one-year, minimum deal. On Monday, the Lakers renounced their rights to free agent big man Julius Randle, a young, talented player with big potential, to sign 32-year-old point guard Rajon Rondo to a one-year, $ 9 million deal.

Sarah Hyland Excited to Get Back to the Gym After Hospitalization: ‘Strong > Skinny’

Sarah Hyland is ready to get her strength back after dealing with a health scare that landed her in the hospital.

The Modern Family star, 27, was hospitalized on June 18 for an unknown health issue, but one week later, she shared that she was cleared to get back in the gym.

“Workout before work,” Hyland wrote on her Instagram Story, telling the camera, “I’m normally shaky, but I’m even shakier from working out.”

Hyland posted in another slide that she plans to build up her muscles.

“Finally have clearance to workout,” she wrote. “Abs here I come. It’s been a while. Strong > skinny.”

Hyland revealed on Friday, for National Selfie Day, that she was forced to leave work on Monday for her hospital visit.

“Sometimes a selfie is more than just a good angle and feelin cute. This time for #nationalselfieday I’ve decided to share my truth. As painful as it is,” she wrote, alongside a picture of herself.

“So here is my face that was torn from work against my will. But I’m very grateful it was. Health should always come first,” she said, with the hashtag, “#stayhealthymyfriends.”

The actress, who was in the middle of shooting the upcoming film The Wedding Year, was able to return home on Saturday, a source told PEOPLE.

Hyland has a history of health issues, including kidney dysplasia, which required a kidney transplant in 2012. Her condition also affects her body composition, and in May 2017 she addressed the frequent skinny-shaming she hears from people on social media.

” ‘Eat a burger,’ ‘your head is bigger than your body and that’s disgusting,’ ” she quoted on Twitter. “And you’re right! … No one’s head should be bigger than their body but considering I’ve basically been on bed rest for the past few months, I’ve lost a lot of muscle mass. My circumstances have put me in a place where I’m not in control of what my body looks like. So I strive to be as healthy as possible, as everyone should.”

“I have been told that I can’t work out. Which, for me, is very upsetting,” she said. “I love to be STRONG. (I’ll be using that word a lot) Strength is everything. Being strong has gotten me where I am. Both mentally and physically. I am not a fan of ‘being skinny.’ ”

Florida Woman’s Arm Found Inside Alligator After She Disappeared While Walking Dogs

The body of a Florida woman who went missing on Friday morning while walking her dogs has been found, and police suspect a 12-foot, 6-inch gator captured nearby is responsible for her death.

On Saturday, the law enforcement division of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission announced that search teams had recovered the body of Shizuka Matsuki from the Silver Lakes Rotary Nature Park lake in Davie — not far from the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.

“We would like to extend our heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Shizuka Matsuki,” the organization tweeted. “We will be conducting a thorough investigation into this incident.”

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Matsuki, 47, had last been seen at the lake near the Ft. Lauderdale lake walking her two dogs, a witness told Davie Police Detective Viviana Gallinal, CBS News reported. A short time later, she was gone, though her dogs were found still on leeches and barking towards the water.

Trappers pulled an alligator from the lake hours later, NBC News reported. FWC officials then cut the reptile open and found a human arm inside, believed to be Matsuki’s.

“After an initial necropsy, evidence was found that indicates that the victim of this incident was bitten by the alligator that was captured earlier today,” FWC spokesman Robert Klepper said, according to WSVN.

One of Matsuki’s dogs also “got bit by the gator,” Davie Police Major Dale Engle told the Sun Sentinel.

Her husband was out of town at the time of the attack, the paper reported.

A neighbor told the Miami Herald that he had warned his wife not to walk near the nature park. “He had warned her not to take the dogs over to that place because they had seen gators before and it isn’t safe,” neighbor Peter Limia, 37, said. “She was just your ordinary soccer mom. It’s a tragedy.”

The dogs, which are pit bulls, are currently with Broward County Animal Care, reported the Herald.

REALTED VIDEO: Alligator Captured on Video in Same Location Where Boy Was Snatched by Alligator at Disney Hotel

According to the FWC, 401 unprovoked alligator bite incidents have occurred in Florida from 1948 to 2017. Of those, 24 of them were fatal.

The most recent was in 2016, when 2-year-old Lane Graves was dragged into a lake by an alligator and killed while playing on the water’s edge during a family vacation at a Walt Disney World hotel in Orlando.
