Rising country music star killed in UTV accident after weekend performance

According to the Norfolk Daily News, Ueker, who went by the name Abby Nicole professionally, was a passenger in a utility transport vehicle when she was injured in an accident early Sunday morning. She was taken to a medical facility in Hebron, Nebraska and passed away at 5:30 a.m.

No further details were available about the accident as the investigation continues.

Ueker’s drummer, Char Barnhill, shared a heartbroken message to his friend, following her death.

Barnhill wrote, “I drove home today and wanted you in my passenger seat. Feet on the dash. Wrapped up in your blanket. Singing our favorite songs. You weren’t there, but I still felt you.”

Ueker had embraced a second chance to share her music with the world after being diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2014. The tumor was located in the left part of the brain that controls speech and memory, but following surgery, she was able to continue her college education in Nebraska and pursue her musical career.

The singer recorded her first EP recently in Nashville and released her debut single, “Cool,” this spring.

She spent time in Music Row where she immersed herself in the city’s rich songwriting community.

Fired Fox News executive proclaims innocence in lawsuit

A Fox News Channel executive fired because of a sexual-harassment case has proclaimed his innocence in a lawsuit, saying he was tricked into signing an agreement to keep quiet about the case.

The network announced earlier this year it was paying $2.5 million to settle an assault claim by former contributor Tamara Holder. But fired executive Francisco Cortes says he had a consensual relationship with Holder.

Cortes says in a lawsuit filed Tuesday he couldn't defend himself at the time of the settlement because he had signed an agreement he believed compelled all sides not to talk. He says he was made a scapegoat in Fox's effort to seem responsive to assault claims.

Cortes is seeking more than $36 million from Fox parent Twenty-First Century Fox.

Fox calls the lawsuit's allegations frivolous and without merit.

President (bleep): TV sitcom bars use of Trump's name

President Donald Trump's name is off limits on the upcoming season of Comedy Central's "Broad City."

Series creators Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson said Tuesday that Trump's name will be bleeped each time it's used in an episode — a move typically reserved for expletives.

Glazer told TV critics that talking constantly about Trump and his administration have made the sound of his name, as she put it, "so gross."

She said she and Jacobson decided Trump has enough air time and they didn't want to share theirs with him.

Glazer and Jacobson star in "Broad City," which returns for its fourth season in September on Comedy Central. The series is about the freewheeling lives of two New York City women.
