Rapper 50 Cent, real name Curtis Jackson, was ordered to pay $2 million more to a woman who sued him after her sex tape was leaked. On July 15, a New York jury determined that Jackson was guilty of illegally posting a video of Lastonia Leviston and her boyfriend having sex and ruled that he should give Leviston $5 million. The hip-hop mogul filed for bankruptcy three days after that, claiming that he doesn’t own all of the materialistic things we may see. He claimed that he was only worth $4.4 million, even though according to Forbes, he’s worth $155 million. His bankruptcy plea didn’t cut it. The jury placed an additional $2 million verdict against Jackson and now he owes Leviston a total of $7 million. “Justice and vindication. I think that’s what was done today,” she said. “I hope he learned a lesson. I hope he grows up.” Read more.
Rick Perry Wants to Allow Guns in Movie Theaters
The movie theater shooting that occurred in Louisiana last week took the entire nation by surprise, and Former Texas Governor Rick Perry believes that he has a solution for preventing an incident like that from happening again. Gov. Perry claims that the shooting could’ve been prevented if guns were allowed in the movie theater. “These concepts of gun-free zones are a bad idea. I think that you allow the citizens of this country — who have been appropriately trained, appropriately backgrounded, know how to handle and use firearms — to carry them,” he said in a recent interview. “I believe that, with all my heart, that if you have the citizens who are well trained, and particularly in these places that are considered to be gun-free zones, that we can stop that type of activity, or stop it before there’s as many people that are impacted as what we saw in Lafayette.” Read more.

President Obama Cracks Joke About Birth Certificate
One of the things that President Barack Obama is known for is his sense of humor. During his recent visit to Kenya, he made a joke about his birth certificate; something that Republicans have been trying to throw in his face for years. “Some of my critics back home might be suggesting I’m here to look for my birth certificate,” he said. “That’s not the case.” Four years ago, President Obama made his birth certificate public to put an end to the rumors that he wasn’t a U.S. citizen, which would have made him ineligible to be president.
