Lyin Lochte

RYAN LOCHTE has been CLEARED of all charges related to his drunken hijinks at the Olympics in Rio last year.

He was accused of filing a false report after he claimed he and three other swimmers got robbed at gunpoint while they were out celebrating.  They actually got detained by security guards after vandalizing a gas station bathroom. 

But a court ruled that lying in an interview with NBC did NOT constitute filing a false report.  The prosecutor could still appeal.  But if not, he's off the hook.


Aaron Carter Gets Arrested for DUI, Just After Saying He’d Never Get A DUI

AARON CARTER was arrested for DUI after being pulled over at 9:00 P.M. in Georgia on Saturday. 

Technically, he was arrested for SUSPICION of DUI, because he refused a breathalyzer and drug testing.  He was hit with three misdemeanors:  DUI, possession of less than one ounce of marijuana, and possession of "drug related objects." 

This is Aaron's first DUI arrest, and the timing of it is terrible for Aaron.  Just FIVE DAYS before the arrest, Aaron was talking to the paparazzi about Shia LaBeouf's drunken arrest, and he boasted, quote, "You won't catch ME getting any DUIs.  I don't have any DUIs."

Ed Sheeran Had A Cameo In The Season 7 Premiere Of Game Of Thrones

There have been rumors floating around that Ed Sheeran was going to make a cameo in the 7th season of “Game of Thrones” – and it turns out, the rumor was true.

 It happened last night.  Ed played a traveling singer who ran into Arya (played by Maisie Williams) while riding through a forest. 

She listened to him sing for a while before telling him she thought it was a pretty song and that she’d never heard it before.  Ed responded by telling her it was a new song, and the two went their separate ways.

Meanwhile, the premiere was so popular that it crashed HBO's website.  Viewing numbers should be released by tomorrow.
