Leaving Neverland Accusers Given Green Light to Sue MJ's Estate
James Safechuck and Wade Robson, the two men featured in the documentary Leaving Neverland, were given the go-ahead to sue Michael Jackson's estate for sexual abuse.

But a new law took effect on January 1, 2020, which allows sexual abuse victims to sue until they're 40. Therefore, it was ruled that the two men can go to trial with their claims that Michael Jackson molested them as children. (via TMZ)

Danielle Bregoli, posted a screenshot showing a very sketchy Instagram notification from 30-year old Broner, which reads, "Text me crazy girl."

While driving a passenger home from the Mercedes Benz stadium, she opened up to him about some of the obstacles she has faced, like being forced to drop out of high school at the age of 16 to raise her first child. She also had to drop out of college because of an “unpaid balance” of $700 at Georgia State University.
