Botham Jean’s Brother Brandt Jean Wins Award For Embracing Amber Guyger During Her Murder Sentencing

Published

on


Although a few months have passed since the initial incident, many are still discussing Botham Jean’s brother, Brandt Jean, openly embracing his brother’s killer Amber Guyger just after she was sentenced 10 years in prison. Fast forward to the present, and now Brandt has been honored with a special award for his actions by a local Texas police group.

The verdict in the Botham Jean case was painful and shocking for a number of reasons, specifically for the short amount of time that Amber Guyger received for his death—and also the outpouring of love that she received from both the judge in the case and Jean’s 18-year-old brother Brandt. As reported by @CNN, The Institute for Law Enforcement Administration awarded Brandt with its 2019 Ethical Courage Award at a recent ceremony in Plano, Texas.

During the award presentation, Brandt addressed the intense backlash and criticism he received for supporting Guyger:

“I never intended for the statement I made to the person that murdered my brother to receive such international recognition. To be honest, I struggled with it for a long time, as I struggled with accepting this award from this agency.”

Brandt also mentioned his late brother while acknowledging the racial discrimination of the police force:

“My brother was well aware of the danger posed to young black men due to the misconceptions about color that seem particularly pronounced among the law enforcement community. I want you all to know I am not a threat, that young black males are not inherently dangerous or criminal. I insist that you encourage diverse leadership that can model inclusion and restraint. Most importantly, I ask that you remember my brother — my example of ethical leadership, a young black male that was perceived as a threat by one of your own. I want you to remember him. I want you to ask yourself what are you doing to ensure that there will be no other families like mine, no other little brothers that have to model ethical leadership in forgiveness of a cop whose lack of training and discipline caused them to carelessly take a life of another.”

In January, Brandt Jean is set to begin his college education at Harding University in Searcy, Arkansas—the same exact school where his brother Botham received his degree back in 2016.

Dr. Terry Dubrow Reveals Which Kardashian Backside Is Requested Most – Hollywood Life

Published

The Kardashian backside is legendary and ‘Botched’ star Dr. Terry Dubrow reveals which one sister his patients ask to look like the most.

Dr. Terry Dubrow, 61, knows a thing or two about plastic surgery as he is legendary for remedying plastic surgeries gone horribly wrong alongside his good friend Dr. Paul Nassif, 57, on television. With a successful practice in OC also under his belt, he reveals the one thing patients won’t stop asking him for — And it involves a fellow E! network star’s behind. “Well, I mean, they- I mean Kim,” Terry says of the number one surgery request he receives. “Buttocks for sure. She has kind of created a new kind of buttock aesthetic, and they ask you for the Kim kind of look.”

Although everyone is asking for the Kim Kardashian-West, 39, derriere special, Terry says there seems to be a fascination amongst his patients with the entire famous family. “I think whatever the Kardashians do, whether Kylie doing lip filler or the way the Kardashians look, moves the needle plastic surgery wise,” Terry revealed. “They sort of are the cosmetic or aesthetic Marilyn Monroe’s of our era, where everybody sort of wants to look like that. You know what I mean? So whatever they’re looking like, whatever they’re emphasizing in either their clothing or their makeup, or whatever they’re doing, becomes the new cosmetic aesthetics that patients now come to plastic surgeon’s office, asking for.”

While Terry admits to never operating on Kim, he completely understands why everyone wants to be just like her. And from the sounds of it, he suspects everything is all natural when it comes to the stunning and perfectly proportional mom of four. “I have no idea if Kim’s done anything,” Terry says. “I don’t even think so. I have no idea. But I’m just saying, Kim, the way she dresses, emphasizes her assets.”

Tana Mongeau Addresses Her Rumored Romance With Noah Cyrus

New couple alert?! Not so fast…

Earlier this month, YouTube personality Tana Mongeau fueled dating rumors with Noah Cyrus—yes, Miley Cyrus‘ younger sister. In a video, the blonde beauty referred to the 19-year-old singer as her “girlfriend.”

And while that certainly created plenty of buzz, the internet star is clearing the air after sparking dating rumors with the “July” songstress.

“To be real, I think that I might have started the girlfriend stuff with some YouTube title,” Mongeau explained in an interview with Entertainment Tonight at the 2019 YouTube Streamy Awards in Los Angeles, Calif. on Friday.

“I just love being around Noah. There’s something about her, even before I knew her, that has always inspired me,” the 21-year-old star shared. “She’s so real, she’s so raw. The way she turns her emotions into art and cares about mental health and was born into this life, but turns it into something beautiful, is so inspiring to me. And I love to kick it with her.”

“There is no tea. Like, that is the tea on that,” she continued, seemingly confirming that they were, in fact, not dating. “I literally just like to spend time with her and care about her. Everything else just kind of makes it a mess.”

Aside from the recent video Tana uploaded on YouTube, which fueled dating rumors, both she and Noah have a long history together.

Back in November, the internet personality addressed her friendship with the 19-year-old singer, while also discussing her open marriage to fellow YouTube star, Jake Paul, whom she wed in late July.

When Tana was asked what was going on between her and Noah, she simply responded, “I don’t know.”

Moreover, nearly eight months ago, the YouTube star sparked feud rumors with the “Good Cry” singer, after claiming that Noah “hates” her because of her friendship with Lil Xan (who was the singer’s ex).

Soon after, the “July” singer set the record straight and reached out to Tana.

“lol this is hilarious i deff dont hate you and for sure turned the opposite direction of you no shoulder check,” Noah tweeted in May. “lets hangout and talk about how bitchy girls are to other girls @tanamongeau dm me.”

Despite their interesting relationship, it looks like the two superstars are simply gal pals!
