Kevin James Loibl Identified as Christina Grimmie Murderer

Friday night, a gunman took the life of Christina Grimmie, a 22-year-old singer and finalist of The Voice season 6.

The shooting took place just after a concert in Orlando, Fla., where Grimmie opened for the band Before You Exit. 

Police have now identified the man as Kevin James Loibl, a 27-year-old resident of St. Petersburg, Fla.

Officials believe Loibl traveled two hours to Orlando specifically with the intention of killing Grimmie.

He was armed with two handguns and a hunting knife, according to authorities.

Grimmie was signing autographs during a meet-and-greet after the show when Loibl approached and shot her.

Grimmie’s brother Marcus tackled the gunman, who then shot and killed himself.

However, suicide may not have been part of Loibl’s original plan.

Police say Loibl had made plans to return to St. Petersburg after the show, suggesting he thought he might get away with murder.

The singer was rushed to the hospital following the attack and later died of gunshot wounds.

A motive is still unknown, but in a press conference Saturday morning, police said Loibl appeared to be a “deranged fan.”

They say they are searching his phone and computer and hope to uncover more details shortly.

A number of stars and supporters have spoken out against the senseless violence against what was once a promising young singer:

Amina Blue: 11 Hot Photos of Tyga’s New Lady!

It’s been roughly one month since we learned that Kylie Jenner and Tyga broke up.

Since then, it didn’t take long for both parties to be linked romantically to other new boos.

Just days after we learned of the breakup, Kylie was reportedly seen kissing rapper Ty Dolla Sign at a club, but shortly thereafter was seen on numerous occasions with another rapper, PartyNextDoor.

In a few short weeks, Kylie and PartyNextDoor have already gotten serious, and she’s even allowed him to post her pics on Snapchat and Instagram.

By contrast, Tyga was spotted at a concert with Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star Karlie Redd and has also been linked to British model Demi Rose.

While we haven’t heard much about Tyga and either of these women of late, the rapper just posted a new sultry pic of a new lady to Instagram.

Her name is Amina Blue, and she’s – prepare yourself for a shocker – a model.

But this isn’t just any model, it turns out. She’s a Yeezy model – that’s right, Blue is a fashion muse for Kylie’s brother-in-law, Kanye West.

Would it hurt these people to date outside their inner circle? Sheesh.

Anyway, Tyga was on a Jamaican vacay when he shared a pic of Blue looking camera-ready in a plunging silk blouse and bikini bottoms.

Is he trying to make Kylie jealous? Or are things actually serious enough between these two to be Instagram official?

Whatever the case, let’s get to know this mystery lady.

1. Tyga shared this pic of Amina Blue to Instagram

Amina is a model for Kanye West’s fashion line. There are a lot of models out there, and Tyga had to pick one connected to Kylie’s family?

4. Who does she remind you of?

Chris Brown SUPER Stoned, Stopped By Cops in Amsterdam!

Chris Brown SUPER Stoned, Stopped By Cops in Amsterdam!

Chris Brown partying and getting high in Amsterdam is not a shock.

It’s legal to smoke marijuana there, so Breezy partaking in the local culture really isn’t even a big deal.

It is not legal, however, to drive while under the influence – or to drive a motorcycle without a license plate.

But after a coffee house smokeout session, Brown hopped on a dirt bike and drove around the city, only to be stopped by local police, which was caught on video by TMZ.

The weed must’ve really chilled out Brown, who we all know has displayed violent tendencies in the past, because he was cool as a cucumber throughout the entire ordeal.

His friend tried to explain that Brown was “one of the most famous rappers,” but the cops there had no idea who he was – which might’ve actually worked in his favor considering his past brush-ups with the law.

The officer told Brown and his entourage that they’d be slapped with a fine and couldn’t drive any further, and Brown was surprisingly calm.

“That’s fine,” he told them. “We’ll get the van to come get us.”

And in a move that made us wonder if this was the real Chris Brown or some sort of imposter, he even thanked the cop for a job well done.

“Thank you for doing your job, sir, appreciate it,” he said without a lick of sarcasm, and even invited the officer to attend his show the following night.

“They’re nicer than LAPD. I’ve been on pavement,” he told his friends.

When the authorities told him he’d have to go down to the station to pay a fine for driving without plates, he was good with that, too. 

“No problem, sir,” he said, then later complimented the man’s jacket.

Looks like a high Chris Brown is a very, very nice Chris Brown.

Later, the rapper posted videos from the station to his Instagram account, calling the police “cool as shit.”

TMZ also caught videos of Chris smoking a joint just before getting on the bikes, and of a local woman complaining about his driving as he just sits there grinning from ear to ear.

Perhaps his charm got him out of the higher (no pun intended, but it works) crime of driving under the influence.

Either way, it’s quite the contrast to last week’s TMZ vid in which we saw an angry Brown stomping on a man’s head during a concert.

Something seems fishy, though. These Amsterdam videos are eerily clear and shot quite close up. Were they somehow staged?

It’s hard to know, but we’re fairly certain they incited a couple eye rolls from Brown’s baby mama Nia Guzman, who has been warring with her ex over social media and recently slammed him as an “Instagram dad.”

All we know is if we ever have a run-in with Breezy, we hope he’s high when it occurs.

Game of Thrones Season 6 Episode 8 Photos: Tyrion Looks Troubled

We’re officially in the homestretch for Game of Thrones Season 6, and if even one of the fan theories about the upcoming episodes is accurate, we should be in for quite the finale.

Folks are predicting the deaths of hated villains, and unexpected returns for characters long thought dead. (Why not? We already had one of those on last week’s episode!)

Clearly, anything goes in this post-book world we’re living in, so we’ll limit our speculation to Sunday’s episode, “No One.”

Tyrion will return after a two week hiatus, and he’ll look vaguely troubled about something. Call us psychic!

Watch Game of Thrones online to get caught up in time for the beginning of what’s sure to be thrilling end.

1. Troubled Tyrion

Tyrion looks less than thrilled in this photo. And he’s one of the characters who’s actually managed to improve his situation this season!

2. Jaime in a Jam

Looks like a bad week for the Lannisters. Jaime seems vaguely pissed too. Of course, he has to deal with the Freys and Brynden Tully, so we can’t really blame him.

3. Cersei and The Mountain

Cersei and the mountain
Cersei has the undead Mountain as her protector. So she has reason to smile – just don’t expect her to do so.

4. Tommen on the Iron Throne

Looks like we’re in for lots of Lannister angst this week. Sure, Tommen’s on the Iron Throne, but heavy is the head that wears the crown, as they say.

5. It’s Lancel Lannister!

Its lancel lannister
Did we mention that this appears to be a Lannister-heavy episode? Sure, he’s “Brother Lancel” these days, but deep down, he’s still a Lannister.

6. Another Red Priestess!

They’re everywhere these days! This one doesn’t have a name yet, but she’s played by actress Melanie Liburd.

Christina Grimmie: Mourned, Remembered as “Angel, Beloved Friend”

The music world is recovering from a stunning tragedy this morning.

On Friday night, The Voice alumna Christina Grimmie was killed in Orlando when a man approached her after a concert and simply opened fire.

Grimmie was 22 years old.

According to multiple outlets, Grimmie had just finished a show with pop rock band Before You Exit at the Plaza Live when she and the band’s members lined up for an autograph session.

Soon afterward, a gunman with two weapons walked up and shot Grimmie.

The artist’s brother quickly tackled the shooter, who turned a gun on himself and committed suicide.

He is being hailed as a hero for saving other lives, but he could not save his sister:

Grimmie was taken to a local hospital and died of her injuries early Saturday morning.

In response to the tragedy, the official The Voice Twitter account sent the following message about the 2014 contestant:

There are no words. We lost a beautiful soul with an amazing voice. Our hearts go out to the friends, fans and family of @TheRealGrimmie.

Grimmie was signed to Island Records and was working on an album at the time of her death.

“Christina was such a loving, caring, beautiful person with the biggest heart. She was an absolutely incredible musician and an even better friend.”

The group referred to Grimmie as an “angel, sister and a beloved friend” and added:

“We are so saddened by her passing and are completely heartbroken. Words fail to describe how much Christina means to all of us.”

“She was always a constant beam of light and energy into the hearts of everyone around her.

“Her care-free spirit and her laughter constantly lit up every room she entered and she always had this glisten in her eyes which was evident in her faith.

“While we know there is no sort of feeling that can replace the joy Christina brought into our lives, we know she is glistening from up in Heaven and shining down on all of us.”

In conclusion, the band Tweeted:

“Please join us in keeping Christina’s family as we know Jesus said, ‘In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.’

“She and her talent will be missed by us all.”

We send our heartfelt condolences to Christina’s family members, friends and loved ones.

Brandi Glanville to Yolanda Foster: You Need to Get Some D—, Girl!

Brandi Glanville to Yolanda Foster: You Need to Get Some D—, Girl!

Yolanda Foster filed for divorce from husband David Foster in January, and her former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills co-star Brandi Glanville thinks it’s time to get her groove back.

In a new interview with People, Glanville shared a piece of advice she has for Foster.

“I said, ‘Girl, you need to get out there and get some d!'” Glanville told the magazine.

Girl has a point. But Foster wasn’t so into the idea.

“And she was like, ‘No!’ So I said, ‘You can’t say that! I’m serious, it might make you feel better!'” she insisted. 

“And she laughs at me. But she knows my intentions are good, I just say crazy sh*t,” said Glanville.

At the moment, Glanville says, Foster is instead focused on overcoming her ongoing battle with Lyme Disease.

“She’s not interested in men right now,” Glanville explained.

“She’s interested in her mental health and that whole thing.”

Yeah. That “whole thing” can really get in the way of scoring some d.

Glanville said she’ll be happy to serve as Foster’s wing woman once she’s ready, which would be a great show to watch.

Meanwhile, Glanville is promoting her own reality show on VH1, Famously Single.

Back in November, rumors swirled that Glanville was hooking up with Calum Best, her Famously Single co-star, but nothing seemed to come of it.

Lately, folks have speculated that she’s involved with another co-star, Dean Sheremet.

Glanville and Sheremet star together in another reality show (how many does she have?), My Kitchen Rules, but they are linked more famously for being cheated on respectively by Eddie Cibrian and LeAnn Rimes, who are now married.

Wherever you’re getting it, Brandi, just be sure to use protection.

Kourtney Kardashian: Sleeping With Corey Gamble Behind Kris Jenner’s Back???

Kourtney Kardashian: Sleeping With Corey Gamble Behind Kris Jenner’s Back???

Truthfully, this isn’t the most insane accusation we’ve ever heard.

Yes, we’ll admit that Kourtney Kardashian appears to be super-friendly with her mother’s 35-year-old boyfriend, Corey Gamble.

At first, we assumed it was because she’s bedding his boss, Justin Bieber.

However, a source told the National Enquirer that Kris Jenner thinks something romantic is happening between her boy toy and her oldest child, 37.

“Kris has had her own suspicions about Corey and Kourtney for a long time,” a source claims.

“She doesn’t like the way they look at each other!”

On a recent episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kourtney Facetimed Gamble while she and Khloe were getting ready to go out in Los Angeles.

Gamble told the girls to meet him and his friends at celebrity hangout The Nice Guy, and Kourtney was game.

Kourtney explained in her interview that she gets along with Corey very well and loves having him as part of the family.

“But Kris suspects something else could be going on,” the source says.

“She had a security agency put hidden cameras in Kourtney’s bedroom and hired a private investigator to have Corey followed.

“Corey tries to keep Kris happy and satisfied … but he also finds Kourtney extremely attractive,” the source added.

“But Kourtney is too smart to get caught by Kris!”

Kris cheated on her first husband, Robert Kardashian with animator Todd Waterman, who is nine years her junior. 

Kourtney was devastated by her parents divorce, and (we hope) is too sharp to carry on an affair with her mother’s boyfriend (even if he is two years her junior).

On the May 15th episode of Kardashians, even Kim thought Kourtney and Corey’s relationship was a little strange.

“Him and Kourtney, they go out at night together, they hang out during the day, they go on hikes,” Kim told the cameras. “They are always together.

“I think I need to talk to Kourtney just to call her out on it.”

To be fair, Kourtney did explain to Kim that she sees Corey as part of the family, since he didn’t have as large a crew as the Kardashians growing up.

After Kim spoke to Corey, she started to see why he and Kourtney were so chummy.

“[The conversation] made it all come together and makes sense to me why he loves spending time with Kourtney and the kids,” Kim told the cameras.

This is all getting to be way too cozy.  It would, however, do wonders for the ratings.

Kailyn Lowry: Past Relationships With Women Revealed!

Kailyn Lowry: Past Relationships With Women Revealed!

Whatever happened to kissing other girls without the whole damn world knowing?

Kailyn Lowry’s sexuality is now the topic of conversation among Teen Mom 2 fans, after she posted (then later deleted) a Snapchat of herself kissing longtime friend, Becky Hayter (a very apt last name).

In 2012, Star Magazine attempted to uncover Lowry’s romantic past, which involved what can categorically be described as lesbian relationships.

It started back in middle school.

“Kail was with a girl named Shelby for about two years,” a source told the tabloid at the time.

“Jo [Rivera] knew about Kail’s relationship with that girl. He thought it was a phase.”

Rivera and Lowry have a six-year-old son, Isaac.  The demise of their relationship was first capture on 16 & Pregnant, and then on the hugely successful spin-off, Teen Mom 2.

While Lowry was still with Rivera, she hooked up with her fried, Gigi Hanna.

“Kail cheated on Jo with Gigi [Hanna], but he knew and didn’t care,” the source said. 

“They were both seeing guys, [but] would make out and Gigi would sleep in her bed sometimes. … Kail thinks they’ll both end up with a guy, but they’ll always be best friends.” 

Hanna more or less confirmed this to Star.

“We became close again and promised to never leave each other; we moved in together,” Hanna said.

“We know our boundaries.”

Lowry’s four-year marriage to Javi Marroquin resulted in a son, 2-year-old Lincoln.  She and Marroquin announced their divorce last month.

This past weekend, Lowry joined Hayter and other friends for a gay pride event in Asbury Park, New Jersey.

A week before this, Hayter posted a photo with Lowry, and used the caption, “Forbidden fruit” with an upside down smiley face.

Lowry has not yet commented on the speculation, probably because she was enjoying herself with friends and assumed it was cool to hang at an event that encourages the freedom to be oneself.
