Ticket Scammer Escapes Prison

I thought this was interesting.  Hannah Rebecca Valentine, 19, recently scammed 100 people out of fake concert tickets, gone to prison and now she’s escaped.  She was found guilty of 53 fraudulent offenses by forging tickets to various shows such as Post Malone and several festivals.

Free A$AP Rocky

Looks like A$AP Rocky won’t be getting out of Swedish Jail as quickly as he would like.  While over in Swedan, a guy had gone up to A$AP and accused him of breaking his headphones.  After some words were exchanged, they began to fight.  A$AP was thrown in jail and now can’t get out for at least 2 weeks.  He was denied counsel and now waits to be released.  There is a petition to sign to get him out over here

Universal Music Group is being sued by the estates of Tom Petty, Tupac, Soundgarden, Steve Earle and Hole.  Back in 2008 there was a huge fire that destroyed an estimated 500,000 master recordings by artists ranging from Nirvana to Billie Holiday.  They were held in a facility that UMG had rented from NBC and value the losses from the fire at $150 million.

According to the lawsuit its looking for:

“50% of any settlement proceeds and insurance payments received by UMG for the loss of the Master Recordings, and 50% of any remaining loss of value not compensated by such settlement proceeds and insurance payments.”
