Jason Derulo’s Crew Booted From Southwest Flight
Jason Derulo was traveling from Reno, Nevada, to Los Angeles when one of his team members was refused preferred boarding “His team requested an escort and were denied, they believed the were being treated unfairly, when they voiced their concerns to the airline they were told they could not fly, but proceeded on the plane anyway. At that point the Southwest agent called the authorities and removed them.” Jason himself was still permitted on the flight, but opted not to fly with the airline after the disagreement. A spokesperson for Southwest Airlines told People Magazine that the group was removed because they refused to follow boarding procedures. “According to our employees, the group refused to follow boarding procedures, initial reports indicate that several customers complained about the group’s behavior. Our crew, responsible for the Safety and comfort of all customers on board, attempted to diffuse the situation; ultimately, local authorities were called and the decision was made to deny boarding to the group. The group sought alternate transportation and their tickets were refunded.” Derulo spoke out about the situation on his Instagram, sharing a video on Saturday night. Get more here.

Morgan Freeman’s Granddaughter was Stabbed and Killed By Her Boyfriend
Morgan Freeman’s 33-year-old granddaughter was fatally stabbed yesterday morning in New York City. E’Dena Hines was found lying in the street outside her home, suffering from multiple stab wounds. A 30-year-old was arrested for the murder and, according to the “New York Daily News”, it was her boyfriend. The killer was screaming things that sounded like an exorcism attempt. One of the witnesses heard, quote, “Get out devils! I cast you out Devils in the name of Jesus Christ! I cast you out!” A lot of people are referring to E’Dena as Morgan’s step-granddaughter, because she’s the granddaughter of his first wife. But Morgan adopted her mother, Deena, so even though they weren’t related by blood it’s still a huge emotional loss for him. He released a statement saying, quote, “The world will never know her artistry and talent, and how much she had to offer . . . Her star will continue to shine bright in our hearts, thoughts and prayers. May she rest in peace.” He also made a Facebook post to thank everyone for their love and support. Get more here.
