Kim, Khloe, Kylie, and North West in Car Accident



Thankfully everyone is okay.




According to a report released by TMZ, Kim Kardashian, her daughter North West, Khloe Kardashian, and Kylie Jenner were involved in a car accident today in Montana.
From TMZ:
We're told the girls were driving in Bozeman, MT Saturday morning when a semi-truck drove by their car and kicked up a ton of snow, hitting their windshield and apparently blinding Khloe.
Apparently Khloe couldn't see and began swerving, right into a patch of black ice. The car then spun out of control, crossing oncoming traffic and ending up in a ditch.
Thankfully, everyone is OK, and Kim just posted this photo to Twitter:
Thank you God for watching over us and keeping us safe

Demis Roussos dies aged 68

Greek singer Demis Roussos, who sold more than 60 million albums worldwide, has died aged 68 the Hygeia Hospital in Athens has confirmed to the BBC.

He was best known for his solo hits in the 1970s and 80s, including Forever and Ever, Goodbye and Quand je t'aime. 

He was also a member of progressive rock group Aphrodite's Child.
Roussos went on to enjoy a successful solo career, topping the charts in several countries with Forever And Ever in 1973, before doing the same in the UK in 1976.

Demis RoussosRoussos was photographed surrounded by awards for the UK sales of his albums, including gold discs for Happy To Be and My Only Fascination
Other solo hits include My Friend the Wind, My Reason, Someday Somewhere and Happy To Be On An Island In The Sun.

Roussos' fondness for kaftans saw him dubbed "the Kaftan King" and he often wore them for his performances on shows such as Top of the Pops.

He was also famous for his vocal adaptation of the score from the 1981 film Chariots of Fire, which had been composed by Vangelis.

In 1978 he decided to keep a lower profile and moved to Malibu Beach in the US.

Plane hijack

On 14 June, 1985, Roussos boarded TWA Flight 847 from Athens to Rome - and found himself at the mercy of the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah, who hijacked the plane.

The men, who had smuggled a pistol and grenades through airport security, held the passengers at gunpoint.

The militant group demanded the release of 17 members of Hezbollah and the Iraqi Islamic Daawa Party, who had been detained in Kuwait for attacks that killed six people in 1983.

Roussos spent his 39th birthday in captivity, before being released in Beirut on 18 June - but most of the remaining 153 passengers spent 17 days on the plane.

Speaking to the Reuters news agency at the time, the singer said he had been "treated quite well".
"They gave me a birthday cake and they gave me a guitar, to sing," he said. "They have been very polite and very nice with us."

Return to music

Over the years, his quote became misinterpreted and distorted. Some papers said he had serenaded the hijackers. Others claimed he had pledged allegiance to Hezbollah.

Roussos, who rarely spoke about the incident, admitted he was riled by the exaggerations in an interview with Australia's Daily Telegraph in 2006.

"It is not every day that a pop superstar gets involved with terrorism as a victim, so the press takes advantage of that to say things they think are funny.

''I would like to see the journalist [who first reported the claim] in front of gunpoint like I was. Believe me, if he was there he would be so scared he wouldn't care about writing such stupidities like that.''

The experience changed his life and afterwards he decided the best way he could help others and promote understanding in the world was by returning to music.

He released his album The Story of Demis Roussos not long after.

Ex-Boyfriend of Britney Spears Killed by Taliban Insurgents





The ex-boyfriend of Britney Spears  has been killed by the Taliban in Afghanistan. John Sundahl was working as a pilot flying officials around the country and was shot down while flying a helicopter from Kabul, British newspaper The Mirror reports.
Sundahl dated Spears in 2007, after the pair met at an AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) meeting. John's brother Karl said, "It's heartbreaking — he went there to try to repair the country. He was trying to help people, he would often say that the country was in chaos."
"This is just awful. My family are heartbroken, my parents are elderly so this is very tough for them, and all of us... We know Britney's upset too. John was still good friends with Britney, he talked to her regularly", Karl continued.

Woman Was on the Phone with Her Fiancé When She Was Shot and Killed




Tanya Nikitina, 34, was murdered by her former mother-in-law in 2010, just weeks before her wedding to Rod Hernandez. Hernandez finally opened up about that terrible day, most shockingly revealing that he was on the phone with her when she was shot [via Daily Mail].
Mary Nance Hanson killed Nikitina after she divorced Hanson's son, Dale Jankowski. Hanson didn't want Nikitina to get custody of her and Jankowski's two young children, so Hanson gunned Nikitina down in the school parking lot where Nikitina taught.
Hernandez said he happened to be on the phone with Nikitina when she was killed. "She was telling me how much she loved me when suddenly I heard her scream and there was a loud bang. I could still hear her engine revving and the radio playing. I thought she'd had an accident. The school was only a short drive away, so I jumped in my car. I stayed on the phone the whole way there, screaming her name trying to wake her up," he says.
Hanson will do life in prison, but knowing that isn't enough for Hernandez. "No amount of time in prison is going to bring Tanya back. Hearing my fiancĂ©e's tragic end on the phone still haunts me. I still can't believe she's gone," he said.
