A date went horribly wrong for a lady who claimed the man she went out with stole her car and went with another woman on a date in Memphis, Tennessee. 
The lady named Faith Pugh told Police that the incident occurred on Saturday when she went to meet Kelton Griffin for romantic dinner. She said they decided to use her car since Griffin didn't drive.

According to her, while they were driving Griffin asked her to stop by at a gas station and help him buy a cigar. But when she got out, she said he had already sped off in her car.
An hour later, Pugh says a friend sent her a text saying Griffin had just asked her out.
The friend told Pugh where they were and she showed up to a drive-in theater with police, where they found the pair in her car.
According to abc7news.com, Griffin was arrested on the spot.

Cristiano Ronaldo 'Accepts' 2-year Suspended Prison Sentence To End Tax Scandal

Cristiano Ronaldo 'Accepts' 2-year Suspended Prison Sentence To End Tax Scandal
Cristiano Ronaldo
 
Cristiano Ronaldo has paid the Spanish tax man £12.1million and accepted a two-year suspended prison sentence., Dailymail UK reports.
 
It appears the 33-year-old Juventus forward is wasting no time clearing debts and cutting all ties with Madrid and Spain following his transfer from Real to Juve. There are also suggestions he plans to pull his business interests out of the capital.
 
Spanish radio station, Cadena Cope reported that Ronaldo has deposited the £12.1m and will also pay a further £4.7m in fines and costs. He will never have to serve the prison sentence because first offences for administrative crimes involving terms of two years or less are not custodial in Spain.
 
One of the primary reasons for leaving Spain has always been his anger at tax authorities for taking him to court for fiscal fraud and just one week after his departure to Italy he has wiped his debt with the treasury.
 
The player is also understood to have put his £4.8m Madrid mansion in the exclusive ‘La Finca’ neighbourhood on the market and is seriously contemplating closing all his business interests in the Spanish capital.
 
It is a dramatic cutting of ties that could include abandoning a hotel project in the city’s emblematic avenue ‘Gran Via’.
 
Ronaldo, in a joint venture with Portuguese company Pestana, had gained a building license earlier this year to convert one of Gran Via’s historic buildings into a 160-room luxury hotel with roof-top bar but Portuguese media now say that project could be shelved.
 
Ronaldo has always protested his innocence against claims he wilfully deceived the Spanish treasury by not declaring image-rights earnings between 2011 and 2014.
 
He was furious at being treated like a criminal despite the fact he voluntarily made attempts to put his tax affairs in order in 2014 by making an extra payment of £5m.
 
He felt the prosecution’s accusation was a result of a difference of interpretation of Spain’s complicated tax laws on image rights and should not have resulted in criminal proceedings.
 
He was determined to leave Spain last summer but ended up staying because Real Madrid refused to lower his €1bn (£890m) release clause.
 
With the prospect of a new contract he then settled on staying in Spain and paying his tax debt, with the help of a new signing bonus, but when Madrid’s contract offer arrived in January it did not meet his expectations.
 
This summer they were willing to bring his release clause down and with Juventus paying Real Madrid £100m he was able to leave. He will earn significantly more in Italy, not least because the tax situation will be far more favourable in Italy.

Grammy award winning R&B singer, Toni Braxton has taken to her Instagram to share before and after photos of her engagement to rapper and co-founder of Cash Money Records, Birdman.

The two who first met back in 2002, officially appeared as a couple on the red carpet at the 2016 BET Awards.
When asked if his relationship with Toni Braxton was official on the Wendy Williams show, the rapper responded- “T, that’s my girl, my friend, my family… that’s my love, my soldier, my life… She’s my life. I love her to death.”

The pair first teased their fans about their engagement back in February during a trailer of reality TV show, ‘Braxton Family Values‘ where Toni happily told her sisters ‘I have an announcement to make… I’m engaged!’
Although there are not a lot of details about the wedding yet, the R&B crooner has been quoted as saying: ”This is my second wedding and I’m over 40 – It’s like Carrie Bradshaw, the last bride over 40 – so I want something that’s elegant and a little sexy. I’ve already done the beautiful bell dress at my first wedding,” she says of the planned black, white and red affair.
”This time, I want something that’s more vintage – ’20s and 30s like Great Gatsby-themed.”

Time magazine unveils provocative new cover featuring a manipulated image of President Donald Trump morphing into Russian President Vladimir Putin
Time magazine on Thursday unveiled a provocative new cover featuring a manipulated image of U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin morphed into one person.

The cover "is meant to represent this particular moment in US foreign policy, following the pair’s recent meeting in Helsinki, Finland," Time said.

The July issue's cover comes after the two leaders' controversial summit in Helsinki, Finland, earlier this week.

Putin and Trump held a joint press conference after a one-on-one meeting on Monday, during which Trump disagreed with U.S. intelligence officials' conclusion that Russia meddled in the 2016 presidential election.

Trump's statements and his refusal to confront Putin about election interference led to a backlash from Americans.

'You can be certain that I'll give my all.'
Speaking on the world record deal, Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp expressed his delight,  telling the club website: 'At one point in the last few weeks it came up, the opportunity to sign one of the world's best goalkeepers - then it's not a long thought, to be honest, it's only that you need to have a little talk with the owners! They were quite excited, so we did it.
'I think it's something we have to do. He has nothing to do with the price, we have nothing to do with the price, it's the market, that's how it is and we will not think a lot about it.Brazil
'It shows the value of goalkeepers, of course, in this moment. It will happen a lot in the next few weeks I guess and that's it, so we are really happy to have him here now.
'His English is surprisingly good and he is a real personality. He has meanwhile a lot of experience in the last few years, in Europe and in Rome, he's played there on an outstandingly high level and he did the same at the World Cup.
'It was for Brazil not too lucky, that's how it is, but then he played a really good World Cup. So it's just a good moment.'Brazil
