ALEC BALDWIN NAMED IN SECOND “RUST” LAWSUIT
LOS ANGELES (AP) – A second lawsuit has been filed in connection with the fatal shooting on the set of the movie “Rust” last month. And this one says Alec Baldwin, who fired the shot, should be held accountable for the death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins. This suit, filed by the movie’s script supervisor, says Baldwin was reckless when he fired the prop gun he had in his hands – because the scene he was rehearsing didn’t call for him to pull the trigger. Mamie Mitchell’s suit claims there was no reason for Baldwin to fire the weapon. Her attorney, Gloria Allred, says Baldwin “chose to play Russian roulette when he fired” the gun without checking it – or having it checked in his presence. The suit seeks both compensatory and punitive damages.

 

QUENTIN TARANTINO FIGHTS AGAINST SUIT OVER “PULP FICTION” NFTs
LOS ANGELES (AP) – Quentin Tarantino says he has every right to create and sell a series of NFT’s based on his movie “Pulp Fiction.” The director of the popular movie and its studio Miramax are clashing over Tarantino’s announcement about making non-fungible tokens based on his 1994 movie, like copies of handwritten script pages. Miramax says Tarantino has no right to do that. An attorney who reps Tarantino says, “Miramax is wrong – plain and simple.”

 

RAPPER YOUNG DOLPH SHOT TO DEATH IN MEMPHIS
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) – A return to a local cookie shop proved to be a fatal move for rapper Young Dolph. He was shot to death yesterday inside Makeda’s Cookies near Memphis International Airport. A local newspaper quotes his cousin as saying as the rapper was in the store, “somebody just rolled up on him and took his life.” Police say they have no information about a suspect. And Memphis mayor Jim Strickland says Dolph’s shooting is “another reminder of the pain that violent crime brings with it.” During his career, Dolph worked with artists like Megan Thee Stallion, T.I., Gucci Mane, 2 Chainz and others.

 

MAN SENTENCED IN EFFORT SO SILENCE WITNESS IN R. KELLY SEX TRAFFICKING CASE
NEW YORK (AP) – An associate of R. Kelly has found himself in the same situation as the R&B star: in prison. A federal court in Brooklyn has sentenced Michael Williams to eight years for setting fire to a car last year. Authorities say the burning was an attempt to scare a witness off from testifying against R. Kelly. The incident occurred as Kelly’s federal case in New York City was pending. He was convicted in September.
