The New England Patriots cut Aaron Hernandez on Wednesday, following his arrest at his home in suburban Boston. The tight end has been the subject of an investigation into the murder of Hernandez’s friend Odin Lloyd, whose body was discovered near Hernandez’s home last week.
Hernandez has reportedly destroyed his cellphone, his home’s video surveillance system and had professional cleaners scrub his house on the day that Lloyd’s body was found. Police have done extensive searches of his property and even sent scuba divers into a pond nearby.
In a statement, the Patriots said, “A young man was murdered last week and we extend our sympathies to the family and friends who mourn his loss. Words cannot express the disappointment we feel knowing that one of our players was arrested as a result of this investigation. We realize that law enforcement investigations into this matter are ongoing. We support their efforts and respect the process. At this time, we believe this transaction is simply the right thing to do.”

The channel said in a statement they “will not new Paula Deen’s contract when it expires at the end of this month.” Deen bailed on the Today show Friday and put up a now-removed apology on YouTube that said, “I want to learn and grow from this. Inappropriate and hurtful language is totally, totally unacceptable.”
Sharon Stone has been named by French police as a suspect in a heist that netted more than $1.4 million in jewels at the Cannes Film Festival. The goods were snatched from a hotel room and French police say the fact that Stone hasn’t made a movie in over ten years tipped them off to the fact that she shouldn’t have been anywhere near the scene.
A spokesperson for the Nice police said, “Sharon Stone’s last starring role in a major theatrical release was in 2006′s Basic Instinct 2, which should have gone to straight-to-DVD anyway. So what possible business does Sharon Stone have attending the 2013 Cannes Film Festival other than to steal expensive jewels? No one, including Ms. Stone, has been able to give us a good answer.”
Amanda Bynes has been firing off a series of tweets saying that a New York City police officer sexually harassed her and wrongfully arrested her in the recent much-publicized bust. Bynes was arrested last week on marijuana charges and for allegedly throwing a bong out a window. Amanda says she has plans to sue the New York City Police Department and her family.
On Sunday, Bynes tweeted, “My lawyer and I are taking this mistake extremely seriously! You cannot illegally enter my apartment then take me to mental hospital without any grounds. I have never been so offended in my life. They found nothing criminal on me or around me, one cop then sexually assaulted me, so I’m suing for all of the above! I’ll be happy when I get money compensation from the cop who assaulted me and NYPD for wrongfully arresting me and having me put into a mental hospital and jail overnight! I don’t want to keep talking about it.”
