With all the crazy airport security in the last decade-plus, plus all the supposed measures in place to keep unaccompanied minors safe while traveling, you'd think parents could feel safe putting their kids on a plane to visit some loved ones.
Maybe not. One dad in Ohio likely won't be sending his 7-year-old daughter on a plane by herself again anytime soon. Kiante Butler, 37, recently put her on a flight from Cincinnati to Houston, but Delta Airlines accidentally released her to the wrong person. Not just any person either -- someone who recently got out of prison after serving time for kidnapping the girl!
Earlier this summer, former besties Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato turned frenemies when Demi inexplicably unfollowed Selena on Twitter, and the posted (and deleted) a nasty vague message that may, or may not have been aimed at ex-BFF.
If there's one thing we Americans love, it's our service men and women who make the sacrifice to serve our country. So when we hear about a member of our troops being mistreated for showing their military pride, we get just a wee bit defensive. Like this story of an Iraqi war veteran who was denied entrance to a theme park for his "offensive" shirt supporting his fellow Marines.
Mario Alejandro was recently turned away from New Jersey's Six Flags Great Adventure for wearing a shirt decorated witha star-spangeled M-16, and the catchphrase, "Keep Calm and Return Fire." That was apparently enough to keep him from enjoying his day at the amusement park with his family.
Celeb couples always seem on the brink of divorce, amirite? I mean look at power couple Jay Z and Beyonce -- who would've ever thought those two might be calling it quits?
Another seemingly happy couple got hit with the divorce rumors, when the National Inquirer reported that Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka were headed to splitsville. According to Harris, who was eager to debunk the gossip, the couple couldn't be happier, and he's "grateful" for his partner of 10 years and their 3-year-old twins.
Is Jenelle Evans getting officially engaged soon? The Teen Mom 2 star has made no secret of her undying love for her boyfriend Nathan Griffith, and by all accounts, he does seem like a pretty decent dude.
Jenelle has hinted around in the past about eventually marrying Nathan, and the two even just had a baby together (shout out to Kaiser!), but so far they have remained unbetrothed. That all could be changing though, if the picture Jenelle put on Instagram of engagement rings on Friday is any indication.
