New biography about David Bowie reveals details of his wild life

An upcoming biography of David Bowie reveals new details about the singer’s life, including some strange propositions, NME reported.

>> Read more trending news

“David Bowie: A Life” will be released Sept. 12. Written by Dylan Jones, the biography is described as “intimate a portrait as may ever be drawn” about Bowie, who died Jan. 11, 2016, after an 18-month battle with cancer.

In the book, groupie Josette Caruso describes the time Bowie was offered a “warm, deady body” to have sex with while on tour in Philadelphia in September 1972, NME reported.

According to the Daily Mail, Caruso told how Bowie’s bodyguard answered the door and then called for the singer, looking “white as a sheet.”

“He obviously looked like such a freak that some sick people thought he might be into necrophilia,” Caruso said.

“Who on earth do they think I am? Why would they think I’d be interested in something like that?” Bowie reportedly said.

Other details from the book, according to the Daily Mail:

  • Bowie’s sex addiction drove him to sleep with 13-year-old groupies, engage in orgies and declare he was bisexual.

  • Because of his brother's schizophrenia, he did not like LSD but developed a cocaine habit.

  • Born David Jones, he changed his last name to Bowie -- like the Bowie Knife -- after British media nicknamed Mick Jagger, 'Jagger Dagger' 

The book also gives a detailed insight into the singer’s life from his childhood in Brixton, through his wild and successful music career, to his relatively calm last few years with wife Iman, NME reported.by

“David Bowie was his very own creation, his very own work of art,” Dylan Jones writes.“This was the boy from postwar Brixton with his sights set on the world.”

On average, Swift has put out a new album every two years since her debut in 2006. Her last album, however -- “1989” -- was released in October 2014.

Swift has more than 102 million followers on Instagram, but that site also has been wiped clean, Billboard reported. Her official website is blacked out.

On Monday, a jury ruled in favor of Swift in her countersuit against former radio host David Mueller for alleged assault and battery.

Hunt, 54, and Carnahan, 56, had been dating since 2001 and share a 13-year-old daughter together. Carnahan has a 20-year-old son from a previous relationship.

Another source confirmed the news to PEOPLE, indicating that the former couple have broken up before in the past and “have had trouble getting along for several years.”

“Friends were shocked. Helen and Matthew always appeared to be super in love,” another insider told In Touch. “Their married friends would joke that they were jealous of their relationship.”

Report: LeBron James ‘100 percent’ leaving Cavaliers in 2018

The idea of LeBron James departing Cleveland again is slowly resembling a possible reality.

>> Read more trending news

NBA reporter Chris Sheridan, who said James was returning to the Cavaliers two days before the announcement, reports James will wear a new uniform for the 2018-19 NBA season.

Kevin O’Connor and Bill Simmons of The Ringer first reported James’ interest in joining the Los Angeles Lakers next summer as a free agent. Speculation has taken off since.

James referred to Los Angeles as “home” in a recent tweet, further tossing fuel on the fire. James’ business is based in Burbank.

The consensus best player in the NBA isn’t a stranger to using social media as a medium to convey his feelings. The firing of general manager David Griffin and Kyrie Irving trade request have made the Cavaliers organization look in disarray, correctly or not.

Owner Dan Gilbert and James have reportedly not seen eye-to-eye. Since Gilbert’s letter criticizing James for joining the Heat in 2010, despite James’ return, there’s been a lack of trust between the two, reportedly.

James delivered his promised title to Ohio, but perhaps that gives him an avenue to close out his career elsewhere. But there’s another NBA season to be played, and a lot can change in a year.

Arnold Schwarzenegger donates $100,000 to ‘anti-hate organization’ after Charlottesville violence

Arnold Schwarzenegger is putting his money where his mouth is after seeing coverage of the violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, Saturday.

In a statement posted on a note on his Facebook page Sunday, the former governor of California said he had been “horrified by the images of Nazis and white supremacists marching in Charlottesville and I was heartbroken that a domestic terrorist took an innocent life. My thoughts and prayers are with the families of Heather Heyer, Lt. Cullen, and Trooper-Pilot Bates.” He announced he would be donating $100,000 to an “anti-hate organization.”

>> Read more trending news

Heather Heyer was killed after police said James Alex Fields Jr. drove into a crowd of counterprotesters at the rally.

Lt. H. Jay Cullen and Trooper-Pilot Burke M.M. Bates were killed in a helicopter crash Saturday while assisting with the incident in Charlottesville. The crash, which is under investigations, happened in a wooded area near a home. The two were the only fatalities.

“While these so-called ‘white nationalists’ are lucky to live in a country that defends their right to voice their awful, incorrect, hateful opinions, the rest of us must use our voices and resources to condemn hate and teach tolerance at every opportunity,” Schwarzenegger’s statement said.

“My message to them is simple: you will not win. Our voices are louder and stronger. There is no white America - there is only the United States of America. You were not born with these hateful views - you can change, grow, and evolve, and I suggest you start immediately.”

Schwarzenegger then said he would donate $100,000 to the Simon Wiesenthal Center, a Los Angeles non profit organzation 

“I’m sending $100,000 to an anti-hate organization I've worked with for decades - the Simon Wiesenthal Center, named after the great Nazi hunter who I was lucky to call a friend.”

According to its website, the Simon Wiesenthal Center “confronts anti-Semitism, hate and terrorism, promotes human rights and dignity, stands with Israel, defends the safety of Jews worldwide, and teaches the lessons of the Holocaust for future generations.”

In a statement Monday, the Wiesenthal Center called on President Donald Trump to “specifically condemn the extreme alt-right and white nationalists who sow seeds of hate, distrust and violence. They and all other extremists, left or right, have no place in the mainstream of our nation.”

That same day, Trump denounced white supremacists, Nazis and KKK members in a prepared statement. It was two days after the violence in Charlottesville. 

On Wednesday, he backtracked, returning to his initial statement Saturday in which he said “many sides” were to blame for the violence. 

“I think there's blame on both sides. And I have no doubt about it,” he said at a news conference Wednesday

That initial response drew criticism from Democrats and Republicans.

According to Variety, he may have broken his ankle in two places and hurt his hip. He is scheduled to see a doctor this week.

Video of the stunt showed Cruise in a harness while jumpiing in between two buildings. He appeared to fall short of the second building and slammed into it. He could be seen limping toward crew members and collapsing, before walking back toward the first, taller building and being pulled back by the safety team.

Cruise is well known for doing most of his own stunts. In 2015, he clung to the wing of a moving plane while filming “Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation.”

BET founder’s daughter suspended from equestrian competition after Walmart gaffe

A man’s mistake at a Florida Walmart has resulted in a one-year suspension from an equestrian competition for Paige Johnson, the daughter of billionaire BET co-founder Robert L. Johnson.

>> Read more trending news

Johnson will miss the 2018 Winter Equestrian Festival in Wellington because of a failed drug test for her horse. A talented rider, Johnson became the first black American to win a major grand prix in 2015.

Johnson’s horse, Luke Skywalker 46, tested positive for Pramoxine in January at the Winter Equestrian Festival. The International Federation for Equestrian Sports (FEI) announced the positive test result for the banned substance in April and Johnson was suspended indefinitely until a final verdict, which was this month.

READ: Johnson first black American to win major grand prix

Sergio Molinero, Johnson’s long-time groom -- the word used to describe a person employed to take care of horses -- went to the store to grab an antibiotic cream to treat small cuts on the horse but accidentally grabbed the one that contained the banned substance, according to an FEI report.

Johnson’s competition includes Jessica Springsteen, the daughter of singer Bruce Springsteen; Georgina Bloomberg, whose father is former New York major Michael R. Bloomberg; Bill Gates’ daughter Jennifer; Destry Spielberg, the daughter of director Steven Spielberg; and Eve Jobs, daughter of the late Steve Jobs.

Molinero said he has been Johnson’s groom for the past 15 years and has been working with the horse since they bought it in 2015.

“I was buying the same triple antibiotic we always buy, which is OK under the anti-doping rules,” he said in the report. “I now realize after Paige was able to find my receipt for the purchase that I made a mistake and pulled the wrong tube off the shelf because it looked so much like the one we always use.”

Pramoxine is an anesthetic that is designed to relieve pain and itching and is on the FEI’s banned substances list.

READ: The stunning Jessica Springsteen attends a Wellington fundraiser

Veterinarian John Nolan told the FEI that Johnson is very careful about the treatment of her horses. He said Johnson is “the most careful and ethical rider with whom he had ever worked,” the report said.

Johnson, 31, must also pay a fine of 2,000 Swiss Francs and an additional 3,000 Swiss Francs to cover legal costs. A Swiss Franc is worth just a bit more than one American dollar.

Her suspension will be up in April 2018.

Johnson has been a competitive equestrian rider since she was a child, competing all over the world.

Serena Williams: ‘I don’t really think I’m a baby person’

Getting pregnant used to be one of Serena Williams’ biggest fears, but she surprised herself when the time came.

“Once I found out, something happened that surprised me. I became really calm,” she told Vogue of finding out she was pregnant while training for the Australian Open. “I thought, ‘You have to win, but you’re allowed to lose, because you have something to look forward to.'”

Now, the tennis star has childbirth and motherhood to conquer next.

“I’m nervous about childbirth,” she told Vogue. “I’m not a spring chicken. The one thing I really want is an epidural, which I know a lot of people are against, but I’ve had surgeries galore, and I don’t need to experience any more pain if I can avoid it. But the biggest thing is that I don’t really think I’m a baby person. Not yet. That’s something I have to work on. I’m so used to me-me-me, taking care of my health, my body, my career. I always ask, ‘Am I going to be good enough?'”

While Williams may be second-guessing herself, she has a close-knit group of friends who are always there to support her. One, actress and girlfriend to Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, thinks her friend will be the “best” mom.

“She will be an amazing mom -- the very best, because she is so attuned to balancing strength and sensitivity,” Markle said, according to Vogue. “Plus, given that she is pretty epic at karaoke, I think she’ll put her signature Serena spin on singing lullabies for the baby. I can’t wait for that!”

Williams announced that she was expecting her first child with fiance Alexis Ohanian in April after the couple got engaged in December. She’s due next month and has decided to wait until the baby’s birth to find out the sex of the child, but Williams and Ohanian feel confident it’s a girl.

“I was playing in 100-degree weather, and that baby never gave me any trouble,” Williams said of competing in the Australian Open while pregnant. “Ride or die. Women are tough that way.”

Taylor Swift wins case against DJ in groping suit

A jury has sided with singer Taylor Swift in her lawsuit against radio DJ David Mueller.

The Associated Press reported on Monday that Mueller was ordered by Judge William J. Martinez to pay Swift a symbolic $1.

>> Read more trending news

The news comes after Martinez threw out Mueller’s counter suit against Swift in which he claimed he was falsely accused and that she got him fired. That suit was thrown out Friday.

Swift’s suit came from a 2013 incident in which Swift said Mueller groped her during a photo op at a meet-and-greet before one of her concerts.

The jury of six women and two men deliberated for a few hours, USA Today reported.

“I want to thank Judge William J. Martinez and the jury for their careful consideration, my attorneys Doug Baldridge, Danielle Foley, Jay Schaudies and Katie Wright for fighting for me and anyone who feels silenced by a sexual assault, and especially anyone who offered their support throughout this four-year ordeal and two-year long trial process,” Swift said in a statement issued by her publicist, Tree Paine.

“I acknowledge the privilege that I benefit from in life, in society and in my ability to shoulder the enormous cost of defending myself in a trial like this. My hope is to help those whose voices should also be heard. Therefore, I will be making donations in the near future to multiple organizations that help sexual assault victims defend themselves.”

The jury also found Swift’s mother, Andrea Swift, and the singer’s radio handler, Frank Bell  were not responsible for Mueller’s firing and had the right to contact Mueller’s supervisors about the incident.
