If you were looking forward to your summer Bachelor fix, you can forget about it. Warner Bros. stopped production of Bachelor in Paradise after allegations of sexual misconduct on the set. During the filming of this season, a female constant who was reportedly too intoxicated for consent was involved in sexual activity with DeMario Jackson. A producer claims the production crew allegedly allowed the activity to continue. Warner Bros. is working to investigate the allegations. Bachelor in Paradise sends rejected contestants from The Bachelor and The Bachelorette to a tropical location. Alcohol consumption and hooking up are encouraged on the show.
Aretha Franklin to documentarians: Show some respect
1. Aretha Franklin just wants some R.E.S.P.E.C.T. So much so, that the Queen of Soul has taken to federal court to block screenings of Amazing Grace, a documentary about Franklin's 1972 Los Angeles gospel concert, at film festivals across the country. A judge ruled in Franklin's favor just hours before the film was set to premiere at the Telluride Film Festival.
2. Opponents of Franklin aren't even sure that the singer has a case. A recently released contact from 1968 shows Franklin signing away the rights to any concert footage. Franklin sued the film's producer, Alan Elliot, in 2011 for using footage of the concert without written permission.
3. So, is The Queen of Soul just being dramatic? Or is Amazing Grace unlawful?
