More protests came for Kathryn Bigelow's "Zero Dark Thirty (2012)" even after she insisted that people had "misinterpreted" the movie. The latest who pointed out its inaccuracy in an open letter is acting CIA director Michael Morell.

"I would not normally comment on a Hollywood film, but I think it important to put Zero Dark Thirty, which deals with one of the most significant achievements in our history, into some context," Morell began. The film graphically depicts CIA officers repeatedly torturing detainees and then credits these detainees with providing critical lead information on the courier that led to the Osama Bin Laden.

Alloco, the CEO of AllGood Entertainment, revealed in January that he and his son were kidnapped by hired "hencemen" working for a local "concert impresario" named Henrique "Riquhino" Miguel who sponsored the New Year's Eve gig. And when Nas and supporting act Jemiah Jai failed to show up, Miguel wanted his money back.

Stagehand's $5 Million Lawsuit Against NKOTBSB Dismissed

December 22, 2012 17:41:47 GMT


New Kids On The Block and Backstreet Boys are freed from a $5 million lawsuit after a judge ruled that the bands are not held responsible for the injury that stagehand William Wesley Styron suffered. The judge said NKOTBSB "owed no duty to plaintiff that was breached when he was injured" and then dismissed the case.

Back in July this year, Styron sued the bands, who embarked on a joint tour last year, after he fell 13 feet through a hole in the stage before a concert in Memphis, Tennessee. Saying the hole was unmarked and blaming it on negligence, the man claimed he suffered a brain injury and also fractured his skull in the tumble.
