Musician Charles Neville of The Neville Brothers dead at 79

Musician Charles Neville, the brother of Aaron Neville and a member of the R&B funk group The Neville Brothers, has died. He was 79 years old.

Aaron Neville confirmed the news to WWL Thursday. The 79-year-old was sick for some time, the station reported. He died at his Massachusetts home.

The New Orleans Advocate reported that the second-oldest of the four Neville brothers had pancreatic cancer. The saxophonist was part of many hits for the band, including 1989’s “Yellow Moon” and the Grammy Award-winning “Healing Chant” from that same year, according to The Times-Picayune.

Neville posted a lengthy tribute to his big brother on Facebook, saying that he was “in the heavenly band” next to jazz, blues and rock ‘n’ roll greats such as Charlie Parker, Fats Domino and Dizzy Gillespie.

“My dear brother Charlie the horn man, just want you to know that if I would’ve had the choice of picking my brothers, I would definitely choose you,” he wrote in the post. “You were a great brother. You’ll always be in my heart and soul, like a tattoo. You helped to mold me into who I am today and I’ll always be thankful. I’ll always see your special infectious smile on the stage next to me, it would always give me a smile. I’m happy that we had a long hang together, the ups and downs. It took who we were and where we came from to make us who we are.”

“You take your well deserved rest with God in Heaven and play with the heavenly band. I know that you’re whole again. Jesus will wrap you in His loving arms and take away all the hurt of the world. We all love you very much. But I know that Jesus loved you best.”

In addition to Aaron Neville, Charlie Neville is survived by his daughter Charmaine, sons Talyn and Khalif; sister Athelgra Neville Gabriel, and brothers Art and Cyril.

Video shows 2014 police shooting that killed ‘Cops’ crew member

The judge in a wrongful death lawsuit against Omaha police officers who fatally shot two men in 2014 -- including a member of a “Cops” camera crew shadowing them -- has released footage that shows what happened inside a Wendy’s restaurant being robbed that night. 

Officers fired more than 30 rounds in the fast food restaurant that they responded to on Aug. 26, 2014, on a robbery call. When the gunfire ended less than 20 seconds later, Bryce Dion, 38, sat slumped over and dying against the window in the Wendy’s vestibule, surrounded by his equipment. 

Also killed in the gunfire was 32-year-old Cortez Washington, who police officials said was robbing the restaurant while armed with a pellet gun. The officers fired at Washington as he fired his gun, which they believed to be real. 

NBC News reported that Washington’s Airsoft pistol fired plastic pellets.

The video footage was obtained Tuesday by the Omaha World-Herald following a hearing in the wrongful death suit, which was filed by Dion’s brother, Travis Dion. 

“It’s probably the best piece of evidence to show the conduct of everyone involved,” said attorney Christian Williams, who is representing Travis Dion. “It’s very chilling, and it shows a very unnecessary situation that led to the death of a filmmaker.”

Bryce Dion was a sound mixer for “Cops,” which was filming officers working in Omaha. The World-Herald reported that he and cameraman Michael Lee were riding along with two officers, Brooks Riley and Jason Wilhelm, when the officers responded to the robbery call at Wendy’s.

The footage released Tuesday, which was filmed by Lee, begins with the crew in the back of the officers’ patrol car. They follow Riley and Wilhelm into the parking lot and both enter the Wendy’s behind Riley and a detective, Darren Cunningham, who had requested backup for the robbery in progress, NBC News reported. Wilhelm is seen running around to the other side of the restaurant, where he entered from a separate door. 

The recording shows Washington behind the counter as Riley and Cunningham approach the doorway leading to the work area. One of the officers appears to yell, “Gun!” before the shooting begins.  

See the entire recording obtained by the World-Herald, and shared by KMTV 3 in Omaha, below. Warning: The video contains images that may be too graphic for some viewers. 

Riley and Cunningham can be seen moving out of the doorway and falling back against the wall as they fire their weapons. Washington, who has been struck by the gunfire, runs out from behind the counter and past the officers.

The officers continue firing as Washington flees the restaurant through the door where police officials said Dion became trapped in the vestibule by the gunfire. 

Lee’s camera footage shows that he ducked behind a table in the lobby during the shooting. When the gunfire ends, he runs to where Dion had slumped down, his right arm moving weakly. 

“Bryce, are you all right? Bryce, are you all right?” a panicked-sounding Lee asks. 

Lee steps outside through a bullet-damaged door to the parking lot, where additional officers who responded to the robbery call are heard screaming for Washington to show them his hands. 

Lee returns to the vestibule. 

“Bryce! Stay with me, man. Stay with me,” he cries. 

Dion, who was wearing a bulletproof vest, was struck by one round from an officer’s gun. The bullet pierced his body under his left armpit, where there was a gap in the vest. 

He died a short time later at University of Nebraska Medical Center, NBC News reported

Washington, a parolee who had an extensive criminal history that included a previous robbery in Missouri, also died at the hospital of multiple gunshot wounds, the World-Herald reported. Toxicology reports later showed that Washington had a high level of PCP in his system when he died. 

Omaha Police Chief Todd Schmaderer, who the World-Herald said had invited “Cops” to Omaha to help build public trust in the department, cleared the officers of any wrongdoing after a review of the shooting. 

“Three individuals inside of Wendy’s witnessed Mr. Washington holding a handgun, and discharge the handgun directly at Detective Cunningham and Officer Riley,” Schmaderer said in 2014, according to NBC News. “The witnesses described hearing the suspect’s handgun being fired and seeing the slide recoil with the shots.”

A grand jury also found that the officers’ actions were justified. 

Trevor Dion’s lawsuit argues that the department was negligent in allowing the TV crew to ride along with officers, stating that they were “not ready, willing or able to provide adequate instruction, oversight, supervision or protection,” the newspaper reported in 2016, when the lawsuit was filed

The suit also argues that the amount of deadly force used by the officers was excessive and that they misdirected their gunfire toward Dion, who was an unarmed bystander and therefore not a threat. 

The video was played in open court Tuesday as evidence in a motion filed by the city of Omaha, which sought to have the lawsuit dismissed, the World-Herald reported. The city has sought to bar the release of the footage. 

Dion had been with “Cops” for seven years at the time of his death, according to the Paramount Network. He had recently been promoted to sound supervisor. 

“Bryce had a passion for life and his work, and was always the first one to help anyone in need. He will best be remembered for a smile that never faded,” Morgan and John Langley, the father and son executive producers of “Cops,” said in 2014. “All of us who knew him or worked with him on ‘Cops,’ as well as the many friends he made working on documentaries and other shows, mourn his passing.” 

Dion was the first crew member killed in “Cops” long history. 

The show honored his memory in September 2014 with an hour-long episode featuring some of his work.

What a catch! Florida fisherman reels in giant 121-pound catfish

Florida fisherman Joel Singletary reeled in the granddaddy of all catfish.

>> Read more trending news 

Singletary caught the 121-pounder April 11 on the Choctawhatchee River, which flows into the sunshine state from Alabama. 

The white-bellied fish, which weighs more than 1.7 times the current record of 69.5 pounds for a catfish caught in Florida, put up quite a fight as Singletary was reeling it in, according to officials with Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

When the fisherman felt the giant fish nibbling on his trotline, he suspected he was in for a battle.

“I was shocked. I didn’t think I could get him in the boat,” he told the NWF Daily News. “The adrenaline took over.”

Since it was caught on a trotline, the catch does not qualify as a state record, but remains an impressive feat nonetheless, FWC officials wrote on the agency’s Facebook page. 

Originally found in the Escambia and Yellow rivers in northwest Florida, blue catfish are now found in the Apalachicola and Suwannee rivers, too. The fish prefers larger rivers with clearer, swifter currents.

Singletarry told the NWF Daily News that after he caught the cat, he had to concoct a system of pulleys to yank it out of the boat. 

Once out, he strung it up and filleted it. 

Some went to his neighbors, some to a weekly fish fry and the rest was planned for a weekend party.

As for missing his chance in the record book, Singletary isn’t too concerned and told NWF Daily he’ll be back out on the waters and not soon enough.

“Oh yeah, I was very impressed,” he told the NWF Daily. “It won’t be a record ... but that’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience holding that in your hands.”

Kelis says marriage with Nas had ‘a lot of physical and mental abuse’

Singer Kelis and Nas divorced nearly 10 years ago, but Kelis has revealed new information about her marriage to the rapper that has stunned many. 

In an interview with Hollywood Unlocked posted Thursday, the singer opened up about her marriage to the rapper, alleging that there was infidelity and physical and mental abuse. The two met in 2002, married in 2005 and divorced in 2010.

Kelis, whose birth name is Kelis Rogers, said there were intense highs and lows throughout their relationship and admitted they “were drinking a lot” and “getting high a lot.”

“It was never normal,” she said, adding that she was 22 when she met Nas, whose birth name is Nasir Jones. “There’s no balance. There’s no normalcy.”

“I was really naive. I was madly in love, and so I took a lot that I shouldn’t have taken and that I generally -- it’s not my character at all,” she said.

“I didn’t file for divorce because he cheated. He had been cheating for two years, and I knew it. It was because on top of all the other stuff -- then you’re gonna cheat?”

>> Read more trending news 

Kelis said she decided to file for divorce in 2009, when she was seven months pregnant with her son Knight. She said she couldn’t bring a baby into her toxic relationship.

“It was dark. It was really dark. There was a lot of drinking. There was a lot of, just, mental and physical abuse,” she said. “I probably would’ve stayed longer if I had not been pregnant.”

“Did he hit me? Mhm. Did I hit him back? Mhm,” she said when asked more about it. “It was because he would black out. He would drink too much, he drank way too much, he will never admit it… There are times that we would party and I would drink with him, but then he would keep drinking. And so a lot of the stuff, he may not remember.”

Kelis said she kept the abuse private because she worried how it would affect her public image.

“I remember so clearly when the pictures came out with that whole thing that happened with (Rihanna) and Chris Brown and ... I had bruises all over my body at that time.

“I wasn’t ready to walk (away),” she said. Adding that she stayed with Nas for years after that incident.

Of her decision to ultimately say something about the abuse, Kelis said, “Seeing (Rihanna) the way she looked and then looking at myself… I felt embarrassed.”

She added that she takes ownership for her own wrongs in the relationship.

“I wasn’t perfect,” she said. “I never painted myself as an angel.”

Kelis also discussed her custody battle with Nas. She alluded that the emcee was in and out of their 8-year-old son’s life. 

“A parent isn’t about showing up when you feel like it. You can’t not show up for months and then show up and try to make up your own (visitation) schedule,” she said. 

Kelis said her life now is good. She’s since moved on and is married to real estate agent Mike Mora. They have a 2-year-old son named Shepherd.

The full interview of Kelis with Hollywood Unlocked can be watched on YouTube.

Guests use Bluetooth technology at Disney hotel to enter rooms

Opening your hotel room door with your cell phone? Disney has started to roll out the new technology for guests to skip the front desk and go directly to their room, speeding up the start of vacations.

Disney gave WFTV anchor Jamie Holmes an exclusive look at how guests will be able to use their cellphones to get into their hotel rooms.

The theme park rolled out the technology at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge.

Over the years, the My Disney Experience app has been an expanding feature of how guests navigate the parks and hotels.

Previous story: Your smartphone could unlock Disney hotel rooms

Guests can use it to check ride wait times and even clean up park photos.

But guests can also use it to plan their hotel stay, skip the check-in desk, and go straight to their rooms.

"If you choose to, you can actually bypass the front desk area, if that's important to you, and start your vacation earlier," Michael Trum, with Disney digital guest experience, said.

Here’s how it works: Guests take their cellphones and hold it up to their hotel room door, and that’s when a little Disney magic happens.

>> Read more trending news 

"They're Bluetooth-enabled. Your phone, most smart phones. We've upgraded our locks to be Bluetooth enabled as well. So, they pair together, via security obviously," Trum said.

The technology can be used as a companion to the Magic Bands, which are required to get into the parks.

Long gone are metal hotel room keys, and for the most part, even plastic key cards are gone.

But, since most guests these days aren't far from their phones, the Bluetooth technology gives them a choice.

Many people wonder whether the new technology is safe.

Cellphone passcodes are notoriously hard to crack and Disney stands by the system.

“We obviously designed this with security in mind. We can't go into details on Disney security policies, but our guests should absolutely feel safe using this as an entry point into their rooms," Trum said.

Disney is not the first to use the Bluetooth technology. Hilton and Marriot hotels have been using it for several years.

The FBI said it has never had a case of hackers using phones to enter a hotel room in the U.S.

Disney will expand the service to other hotels over the next several months.

Medieval grave included coffin birth, early neurosurgery

Researchers have made a rare discovery - a medieval woman who died while pregnant who also had  early form of neurosurgery, as well as,  a coffin birth.

A young woman, who experts believe was between the ages of 25 and 35 years old, had a surgery called trepanation and they think it was done only a week before she died sometime in the seventh or eighth century. Trepanation is when a hole is drilled into the skull of a living person. If it was not drilled, the hole was scrapped in the skull. Either way, the hole would be used to treat pain due to trauma or neurological disease, the BBC reported.

>> Read more trending news 

Skulls with trepanation holes have been found all over the world, the BBC reported.

The woman was 38 weeks pregnant when she died, CNN reported.

Researchers found the bones of a fetus along with the woman’s remains in the brick coffin.

They say the baby was a coffin birth or a rare occurrence when the gases that build up during decomposition expel the baby.

Researchers say to find both the coffin birth and the trepanation, especially trepanation during the European early middle ages, in one person’s remains is extremely rare, CNN reported

The study concerning the woman’s remains, which were discovered in 2010, was recently published in the journal for World Neurology.

Doctors don’t know why she had the brain procedure, but speculate that she may have had pre-eclampsia or eclampsia, and that it was used to relieve pressure she had in her head. Bone healing around the hole in her skull shows that she lived about a week after she had the procedure, CNN reported.

The woman, doctors said, was in good health, but she may have had an illness that wouldn’t be reflected in her skeleton. They also are not sure if the baby would have been able to be born alive, but it was late in the pregnancy, as the baby was about 38 weeks, CNN reported.

Singer Janelle Monae identifies as queer, pansexual in Rolling Stone interview

In an interview with Rolling Stone published Thursday, Grammy-nominated singer Janelle Monae addressed her sexuality, a subject that’s long been speculated under the limelight.

>> Read more trending news 

Monae spoke to the magazine about being in relationships with men and women and said that while she initially identified as bisexual, after learning about pansexuality, she realized she identifies with it as well.

“Being a queer black woman in America -- someone who has been in relationships with both men and women -- I consider myself to be a free (expletives),” she said. 

“Later I read about pansexuality and was like, ‘Oh, these are things that I identify with too.’ I’m open to learning more about who I am.”

Compared with being bisexual, which means someone is attracted to more than one gender, being pansexual “means being attracted to all gender identities, or attracted to people regardless of gender,” according to LGBTQ organization GLAAD.

Related: What is the difference between transgender and transsexual?

Other celebrities that have spoken out about being pansexual include Miley Cyrus, Laci Green, Angel Haze and Jazz Jennings.

“I want young girls, young boys, nonbinary, gay, straight, queer people who are having a hard time dealing with their sexuality, dealing with feeling ostracized or bullied for just being their unique selves, to know that I see you,” she told Rolling Stone.

Monae also spoke about her long-awaited third solo album “Dirty Computer,” saying,  “A lot of this album is a reaction to the sting of what it means to hear people in my family say, ‘All gay people are going to hell.’” The singer now says she serves “the God of Love.”

“Through my experiences, I hope people are seen and heard,” she said. “I may make some mistakes. I may have to learn on the go, but I’m open to this journey.”

“Dirty Computer” will be released Friday.

DJ Avicii’s family issues second statement: ‘He wanted to find peace’

The family of Swedish dance musician Avicii has issued a second statement after his death.

Variety reported that the statement on the artist, who was found dead in Muscatat, Oman, at age 28 April 20, seems to imply that Avicii died by suicide.

“A rep did not immediately reply to Variety’s request for clarification,” Variety reported. “However the statement’s original wording in Swedish makes the implication more overt, one Swedish-speaking source says.”

>> Read more trending news 

The statement is the second issued by the family in three days. The first statement was issued Monday. Avicii’s real name was Tim Bergling.

“Our beloved Tim was a seeker, a fragile artistic soul searching for answers to existential questions,” the statement said. “An over-achieving perfectionist who traveled and worked hard at a pace that led to extreme stress. When he stopped touring, he wanted to find a balance in life to be happy and be able to do what he loved most -- music.

“He really struggled with thoughts about Meaning, Life, Happiness. He could not go on any longer. He wanted to find peace. Tim was not made for the business machine he found himself in; he was a sensitive guy who loved his fans but shunned the spotlight. Tim, you will forever be loved and sadly missed. The person you were and your music will keep your memory alive. We love you.”

Trump confirms Cohen represented him in 'crazy Stormy Daniels deal'

President Donald Trump on Thursday said attorney Michael Cohen represented him “with this crazy Stormy Daniels deal” weeks after he told reporters that he had no knowledge of a $130,000 payment paid to the adult film star by Cohen.

>> Read more trending news

During a phone interview on “Fox & Friends,” Trump said Cohen did “a percentage of my overall legal work -- a tiny, tiny fraction.”

“Michael would represent me … on some things,” Trump said. “He represents me — like with this crazy Stormy Daniels deal, he represented me.”

Daniels’ attorney, Michael Avenatti, called the admission “another gift from the heavens in this case” in an interview on MSNBC.

“It’s a hugely damaging admission by the president because according to what he said on Air Force One a few weeks ago, he didn’t know anything about the agreement, he didn’t know anything about the payment, Michael Cohen went off and did this on a lark and Mr. Trump knew nothing about it,” Avenatti said. “He tripped himself up.”

Cohen negotiated a $130,000 payment to Daniels in October 2016 in exchange for her signing a nondisclosure agreement barring her from talking about an alleged sexual encounter she had with Trump in 2006, The Wall Street Journal reported in January.

Trump told reporters on Air Force One earlier this month that he was unaware of the payment or where the money had come from.

Avenatti told CNN Thursday that Trump’s most recent comments would only bolster his efforts to force Trump and Cohen to testify under oath about their knowledge of the payment to Daniels.

>> Related: Trump says he didn't know about Stormy Daniels payment

“It’s going to add considerable momentum to our efforts to depose the president and put him under oath, because now we have two contrary statements in less than a month,” Avenatti said.

Daniels, who was born Stephanie Clifford, is suing to break the nondisclosure agreement, claiming the document is invalid because it was never signed by Trump.

Cohen filed notice Wednesday that he would not answer questions in the Daniels case, exercising his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination.

Boston city officials vote to change Yawkey Way back to Jersey Street

The City of Boston has voted to change the name of Yawkey Way.

After multiple delays, the commission voted unanimously Thursday to change the name of Yawkey Way back to its original Jersey Street.

The Red Sox organization initially petitioned the city to change the name of the street outside the ballpark from Yawkey Way back to the previous name of Jersey Street weeks ago. 

The late Tom Yawkey, former team owner, has been called racist by some, in part over the long delayed racial integration of the ball club.

Defenders of the Yawkey name believe the name change would harm the reputation of the philanthropic Yawkey Foundation.

Yawkey Foundation issued a statement shortly after the vote.

The City of Boston Public Improvement Commission has the final say over street names.

About a month ago, the commission took about two hours of heated opinions from both sides, tabling the issue for two weeks.

Two weeks ago, the Red Sox organization sent a letter standing by its petition, but asking for a delay in the vote so the public would have more time to weigh in.

Just last week, team president Sam Kennedy told sports radio station WEEI the Sox still want the street name changed.

But according to a report from The Verge, the apparent unfollowing spree isn’t related to the tweets - it’s just a technical issue.

“We can confirm that Kanye’s follower count is currently at approximately 27M followers,” a spokesperson for Twitter told The Verge Wednesday. “Any fluctuation that people might be seeing is an inconsistency and should be resolved soon.”

It appears the inconsistency has been resolved. As of Thursday morning, West’s follower count is at 27.9 million.
