The contentious social media celebrity Andrew Tate was detained in Romania on suspicion of organized crime, human trafficking, and rape.

An official says that a Romanian court has upheld Andrew Tate’s 30-day detention on charges of organized crime, human trafficking, and rape. Tate is a controversial figure on social media who calls himself a misogynist.

According to Ramona Bolla, a spokeswoman for Romania’s anti-organized crime organization DIICOT, the court in Bucharest rejected Tate’s appeal against a judge’s earlier order to extend his incarceration from one day to 30 days.

Two Women Arrested Along Side Tate

Andrew, 36, a British-American citizen with 4.5 million Twitter followers, was arrested for 24 hours on December 29 with his brother Tristan. Two Romanian women were also apprehended.

On December 30, the Bucharest Court of Appeal turned down all four appeals against a judge’s decision to grant prosecutors’ request to keep the person in jail longer. A document detailing the judge’s earlier ruling noted that “the risk of them escaping investigations cannot be overlooked” and that they could “leave Romania and settle in countries that do not allow extradition.”

Andrew and the other three defendants were handcuffed and brought away from the Bucharest court in the afternoon, hours before the court ruled against them.

They have denied guilt through their lawyers, and the 30-day detention order has been contested.

Posts With Cryptic Meanings

After losing his appeal, Tate tweeted something cryptic: “When Allah stated, ‘I test only those I love.'” I treated the suffering as an honor – Abu Hurayrah.” It was one of several unclear posts on his account after his detention.

Tate is said to be a former professional kickboxer who has been living in Romania since 2017. In the past, he wasn’t allowed to use many popular social media sites to post hateful things about women. He insulted teenage climate campaigner Greta Thunberg on Twitter the week before his arrest.

In the trafficking case, DIICOT said it had found six victims who had been sexually exploited and subjected to “acts of physical violence and mental coercion” by the alleged criminal group members.

The agency says that the accused persecutors tricked the victims into doing pornographic things to make money for them. The victims were threatened, kept under surveillance, and subjected to other control measures.

Beyoncé has announced a 43-city world tour supporting her critically acclaimed Renaissance album, which will include five UK dates.

The concerts will begin in Sweden on May 10 before moving to Cardiff’s Principality Stadium a week later.

Additional UK dates will be held in Edinburgh on May 20, Sunderland on May 23, and London’s Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on May 29 and 30.

Ticket sales for her first solo tour since 2016 are expected to be extremely high.

Pre-sales for the singer’s UK shows will begin on Thursday at 10:00 a.m. GMT, followed by a general sale on Tuesday.

Beyonce Fans Brace For Ticket Master Sales

Before ticket pre-sales begin on Monday in North America, fans are asked to register for Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan process, which the company claims will filter out touts.

Those who have registered will be put through a “lottery-style process” if demand exceeds the number of available tickets.

Politicians in the United States, who are already investigating Ticketmaster for the botched sale of Taylor Swift’s Eras tour, will be watching how the systems handle Beyoncé’s concerts.

Beyoncé performed her first headlining concert in four years last week at the opening of a luxury hotel in Dubai, but she did not perform any new material.

She was reportedly paid $24 million (£19.4 million) for the one-time performance, but she was criticized for doing it in a country where homosexuality and gender reassignment are illegal.

Beyonce Wrote The Album During The Pandemic

Critics said that this went against the message of her most recent album, which celebrates black and queer dance culture.

During the pandemic, Beyoncé wanted the album to be “a place to dream and find escape.” She filled her songs with samples and references to club music, from Nile Rodgers’ Studio 54 disco grooves and Grace Jones’ imperious soul to less well-known movements like bounce and dancehall.

Exclaim magazine called it “the sound of a once-in-a-generation superstar at the top of her game,” and the Guardian called it “a breath-taking, maximalist tour de force.”

Beyoncé has avoided making music videos for the album, so the Renaissance tour will be the first opportunity for fans to see her visual interpretations of songs like Break My Soul, Alien Superstar, and Cuff It.

Nominated For Nine Awards

The former Destiny’s Child member could reveal more details at the Grammys this weekend, where she is nominated for nine awards, including album of the year.

In October, the singer hinted at a world tour when she raffled off tickets to a show at the fifth annual Wearable Art Gala.

Images from the auction revealed that the “unique” prize, valued at $20,000 (£16,200), included:

  • First-class plane tickets.
  • A three-night hotel stay.
  • Two concert tickets.
  • A guided backstage tour led by Beyoncé’s mother.

Ozzy Osbourne Cancels 2023 European Tour Because Of Injury

Published

Ozzy Osbourne, a big name in hard rock, has canceled his shows in the UK and continental Europe in 2023.

Osbourne said early Wednesday morning that he would not be touring because of damage to his spine from a car accident four years ago.

“Your patience truly humbles me in holding onto your tickets all this time, but in all good conscience, I have now come to the realization that I am not physically capable of doing my upcoming European/UK tour dates, as I know I couldn’t deal with the travel required,” Osbourne said.

The 74-year-old Grammy winner and former Black Sabbath vocalist said, “my singing voice is fine,” but he was still physically weak after three operations, stem cell treatments, physical therapy, and Hybrid Assistive Limb treatment, to help improve movement and balance.

He thanked his family, his fans, the people in his band and crew, and his fellow metal pioneers Judas Priest.

Osbourne Already Had Cancelled Dates

“I never imagined that my touring days would end this way,” Ozzy said. “Right now, my team is thinking of places I could perform without having to go from city to city and country to country.”

According to the statement, ticket refunds will be available at the point of purchase.

Osbourne had already canceled 2019 tour dates in Europe and North America because of health problems, including a “bad fall” he said hurt vertebrae in his neck.

After leaving Black Sabbath, the singer found solo success before announcing in 2020 that he had Parkinson’s disease, a nervous system disorder that affects movement.

In 2006, Ozzy and the other three Black Sabbath members were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Osbourne and his family, which included his wife, Sharon, and two of his three children, starred in their reality show, “The Osbournes.”

‘Dr. Phil’ Talk Show To End Daytime TV run After 21 Years

Published

NEW YORK – “Dr. Phil” McGraw, the daytime television psychologist, says he plans to end his talk show after 21 years in the coming months, but viewers haven’t seen the last of him.

“Dr. Phil” was the most famous spinoff of Oprah Winfrey’s show, which used to be the most popular show on daytime TV. The Texan’s show started in September 2002. Before that, he was a regular guest on Winfrey’s show.

“With this show, we’ve helped thousands of guests and millions of viewers deal with issues ranging from addiction and marriage to mental health and raising children,” McGraw said in a statement. “This has been an incredible chapter in my life and career, but as I transition from daytime to nighttime, there is so much more I want to do.”

The traditional broadcast television season concludes in the spring; no date was given for Phil’s final show.

More Projects Coming Soon For Dr. Phil

McGraw, 72, said he wants to focus on prime-time programming and has an unnamed project planned for early next year.

Meanwhile, while new “Dr. Phil” episodes will not be produced, the show will remain on the air. CBS Media Ventures, which distributes his show, has said that for future seasons, it will offer stations a package of reruns with some new content to wrap around them.

That is the path taken by “Judge Judy,” which aired its final original show in June 2021 but remains popular in reruns.

“We intend to be in the ‘Dr. Phil’s business with the library for many years to come and welcome future opportunities to collaborate,” said Steve LoCascio, president of CBS Media Ventures.
