Nashville, Tennessee – Morgan Wallen, a country music singer, has been detained after allegedly throwing a chair from the rooftop of a recently opened six-story club in downtown Nashville.

Metro Nashville Police stated that Wallen, 30, was booked into jail early Monday on three felony counts of reckless endangerment and one misdemeanor count of disorderly conduct.

A chair was hurled from the rooftop of Chief’s Bar and landed on Broadway near two police officers, prompting the accusations.

According to the arrest affidavit, the chair landed about 3 feet (1 meter) from cops, who spoke with witnesses and watched security footage. Witnesses informed police that they saw Wallen take up a chair, throw it over the roof, and laugh about it.

Worrick Robinson, Wallen’s attorney, confirmed the singer’s arrest late Sunday and claimed she was completely cooperating with police. He was freed from detention and had a court appointment planned for May 3.

Wallen is one of the most well-known figures in the country at present. His third studio album, 2023’s “One Thing at a Time,” was the best-selling album in the United States last year. It spent 16 weeks at the top of the Billboard 200 in 2023, which means he was at No. 1 for 30% of the year, more than any other album since Adele’s “21” dominated over ten years earlier. It had numerous top ten Billboard Hot 100 successes, including “Last Night,” “You Proof,” “Thinkin’ Bout Me,” “Thought You Should Know,” and “Don’t Think Jesus.”

After a video surfaced of him uttering a racial slur, the country artist was suspended indefinitely by his label, and his songs were removed from radio stations and streaming services in 2021. As a result, he was disqualified or limited from various award events and did not earn any Grammy nominations for his best-selling “Dangerous: The Double Album.”

He was arrested in 2020 for public intoxication and disorderly conduct after being booted out of Kid Rock’s downtown Nashville bar.

Wallen claimed on social media that he and several friends were “horse-playing” after a few pub stops.

“We didn’t mean any harm, and we want to say sorry to any bar staff or anyone that was affected,” Wallen wrote on Facebook. “I want to thank the local authorities for being so professional and doing their jobs with class. Love you all.”

IndyCar Moves To Fox Sports In 2025 After 16 Seasons With NBC. Fox Now Has Daytona 500 And Indy 500

The Indianapolis 500 and NASCAR’s Daytona 500 are two of the largest races in the world, and Fox Sports announced on Thursday that it has bought the rights to broadcast IndyCar beginning in 2025.

Fox Sports has already telecast the first half of the NASCAR schedule. In November, NASCAR revealed a seven-year media rights agreement that included streaming components and two new partners as the 38-race schedule is dispersed over several networks and platforms.

While the specifics of the Fox Sports and IndyCar agreement were kept under wraps, Fox guaranteed network coverage for all 17 races and the two days of Indy 500 qualifying. That assurance lasts the duration of the IndyCar contract.

IndyCar Moves To Fox Sports In 2025 After 16 Seasons With NBC. Fox Now Has Daytona 500 And Indy 500

IndyCar said NBC Sports could not provide the same number of national broadcast opportunities.

“This offers the most competitive and entertaining motorsport on the planet unmatched growth opportunity and unparalleled exposure,” said IndyCar CEO Mark Miles. “Fox Sports is a fully committed partner, ready to promote IndyCar extensively across all of its platforms while delivering millions of fans nationwide engaging and technically innovative coverage.”

Since 2009, NBC has owned the rights to IndyCar; the most recent three-year agreement was said to be for $20 million a season. However, NBC Sports has transferred all of its practice and qualifying session broadcast to its Peacock app, and cable has carried many IndyCar races. The crown jewel race at Long Beach was shifted by NBC to USA Network earlier this season, and it attracted little over 300,000 viewers; when it was broadcast on NBC again in 2023, it drew 1.026 million.

NBC stated, “We are very proud of our contributions to the growth of IndyCar over the past 16 seasons, generating record viewership, unprecedented promotion, and best-in-class production.” “We appreciate the cooperation of the owners, teams, and drivers and look forward to introducing the remainder of the 2024 season to the ardent and devoted IndyCar fans.”

The whole IndyCar season was not licensed to NBC Sports until 2019. It had divided up the programming with ABC before that. The NBC Sports IndyCar season 2023 was the most watched since 2011 and the most streamed season ever.

Compared to the previous year, IndyCar’s viewership on NBC platforms is stable this season; the Indy 500 attracted 5.344 million viewers, up from 4.927 million in 2023.

Fox Deportes will provide Spanish-language coverage of all races, which is also available on Fox and the Fox Sports app. Fox also committed to covering both Indy 500 qualifying days. Every practice and qualifying round will be broadcast on cable on FS1 or FS2.

It’s an IndyCar record for 19 events aired on television. IndyCar will be the only national premier motorsports series with exclusive major broadcast network coverage for every race. For instance, Fox has announced that five of the 14 NASCAR events will air on the network in 2025, with the remaining races on cable.

Fox Sports CEO and executive producer Eric Shanks promoted the Indy 500 as a network addition. He said that on Wednesday, he had a conversation with NASCAR chairman Jim France to discuss Fox’s new alliance with IndyCar, a competitor.

“Adding the legendary Indianapolis 500… to the Fox Sports roster fits perfectly within our model of teaming with sports’ largest events and best-in-class brands,” Shanks stated. “It gives us great pleasure to serve as the new broadcast home for ‘The Greatest Spectacle in Racing,’ an event that is very meaningful to everyone at Fox Sports.”

Other than Milwaukee not being a doubleheader and the All-Star race at the Thermal Club in California becoming a points race, the 2025 IndyCar schedule is essentially the same. The season ends in Nashville, Tennessee, on August 31. It starts in St. Petersburg, Florida, on March 2.

Long a fixture on the IndyCar calendar, Texas Motor Speedway will not be used in 2025 for the second year running.

LOS ANGELES – Billy Ray Cyrus has filed for divorce from singer Firerose after seven months of marriage.

On May 22, the 62-year-old country performer initiated the legal process by filing for divorce from his 36-year-old wife, Johanna Rose Hodges, in a Tennessee court. The divorce is being sought on the grounds of irreconcilable differences and ‘inappropriate marital conduct.’ Cyrus is also seeking a marriage annulment, citing Hodges’ alleged deception as the reason. The lawsuit, however, does not elaborate on the nature of the alleged fraud, but does state that each party should be allowed to retain their individual possessions.

Cyrus and Hodges’ representatives have yet to respond to calls for comment. TMZ initially reported the filing on Tuesday.

After marrying in October 2023, the artists lived in Tennessee and released numerous songs together during their partnership.

In an April Instagram post honoring their six-month anniversary, Hodges wrote, “Life isn’t always easy… but it sure helps when your husband is also your best friend.” “Thank you, Lord.”

Neither Hodges nor Cyrus have addressed the divorce on their social media profiles.

Cyrus has been married twice, most famously to Tish Cyrus, with whom he has five children, including artist and actor Miley Cyrus. They divorced in 2022 after nearly three decades together. They had attempted divorce twice throughout their relationship, but it was put off in 2010 and 2013.

The 2022 divorce sparked a well-publicised schism in the Cyrus family. Miley remarked “I don’t think I’ve forgotten anyone” following a long list of thank-yous and shoutouts to her family, which included her mother, who was in attendance, but excluded her father and onetime “Hannah Montana” co-star.

American Investor Martin Shkreli Accused Of Copying And Sharing One-Of-A-Kind Wu-Tang Clan Album

NEW YORK — Martin Shkreli, an American investor, is facing a new lawsuit for allegedly storing and sharing recordings from a unique Wu-Tang Clan album that he was forced to sell after being convicted of securities fraud in 2017.

PleasrDAO, a cryptocurrency collective, filed the case on Monday after paying Shkreli $4.75 million for the only known copy of the album. The record, “Once Upon a Time is Shaolin,” has remained unreleased to the public, serving as a rare contemporary art piece since it was auctioned off by the renowned hip-hop group in 2015.

PleasrDAO accused Shkreli of violating their agreement by retaining digital copies of the album and circulating them extensively among his social media followers in a lawsuit filed in federal court in Brooklyn, New York.

They allude to his recent social media posts boasting of distributing the digital recordings to “thousands of people.” According to the lawsuit, Shkreli played bits of the album during a livestream he hosted on X over the weekend, referring to it as a “Wu tang official listening party.”

Shkreli has not responded to a request for comment.

The lawsuit is the latest twist in a unique record created in protest of music’s devaluation in the streaming era but purchased at auction by Shkreli, a man infamous for inflating the price of a life-saving prescription and his “Pharma Bro” reputation.

Following his conviction on securities fraud charges, Shkreli was compelled to sell the CD, which came in a hand-crafted silver and nickel casing and included a 174-page leather-bound book.

PleasrDAO stated that it purchased both the physical copy of the record and its digital rights in two transactions, in 2021 and 2024. They stated that Shkreli had erased all traces of the album’s files.

“Any dissemination of the Album’s music to the general public greatly diminishes and/or destroys the Album’s value, and significantly damages PleasrDAO’s reputation and ability to commercially exploit the Album,” the complaint claims.
