Photo that allegedly shows Taylor Swift's assault leaked online

A photo that was sealed by a judge as part of evidence in a lawsuit against a former Denver radio DJ who Taylor Swift says assaulted her has leaked online.
Swift had asked the judge to seal the evidence due to its scandalous nature, saying the tabloids would have a field day should it be allowed to become public.

In the photo published by TMZ, Swift stands between David Mueller and another woman at a 2013 meet-and-greet. Swift has her arms around Mueller and the woman. The then-DJ appears to have his right hand behind her lower back, possibly on her butt.

The singer alleged Mueller grabbed her butt while posing for a photo.

"Right as the moment came for us to pose for the photo, he took his hand and put it up my dress and grabbed onto my a** cheek and no matter how much I scooted over it was still there," Swift said in her deposition. "It was completely intentional, I've never been so sure of anything in my life."

In the photo, Swift is leaning in closely …

Oscar Pistorius moves to prison 'better adapted' for disability

Jailed South African athlete Oscar Pistorius has been moved to another prison at his request. Pistorius asked to move to the nearby Atteridgeville Correctional Centre, South Africa's department of correctional service said.
The centre, just outside Pretoria, is better adapted for disabled offenders.

The former Paralympian, known as the Blade Runner, is serving a six-year prison sentence for the murder of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in 2013.
The double amputee had been serving his time in Kgosi Mampuru II prison, a large facility in Pretoria which houses about 7,000 inmates.
In comparison, Atteridgeville is far smaller, and houses offenders serving up to six years and has rehabilitation and development programmes for inmates. 
"The transfer was in line with his special needs," department spokesman Singabakho Nxumalo told the AFP news agency.
"The new prison caters for people with special needs, it has been revamped to include facilities like bath tubs."

First woman to fly China's J-10 fighter killed in crash

The first woman to fly China's J-10 fighter plane was killed in a crash during an aerobatics training exercise, state-run media reported Monday.
Yu Xu, 30, a member of the Chinese air force's "August 1st" aerobatic display team, ejected from her aircraft during a training exercise in the northern province of Hebei at the weekend, the China Daily newspaper said.

She hit the wing of another jet and was killed, it said, although her male co-pilot ejected safely and survived.

"As one of only four female pilots in the country capable of flying domestically made fighter jets, her death comes as a tremendous loss to the Chinese air force," the Global Times newspaper said.

Yu, from Chongzhou in the southwestern province of Sichuan, joined the People's Liberation Army (PLA) Air Force in 2005, reports said.

She graduated from training four years later, one of the first 16 Chinese women pilots qualified to fly fighter jets, the China Daily said, and in July 20…

Kim Kardashian’s Doctors Fear a Third Pregnancy Would Result in Severe Complications

Kim Kardashian West has babies on the brain, but carrying a third child may not be in the cards for the reality star.
On Sunday’s episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kim revealed that she’s ready to expand her family, but her previous pregnancy complications are making her consider using a surrogate.

During the episode, Kim decided to go talk to her doctor with Kris Jenner about the possible health risks that she would face if she were to have a third child.

“You never know if you might have the same type of problem that could be more serious this time,” Dr.

Crane warned her. “You’re always taking a little bit of a chance. There are situations where retained placenta could be life or death.”
“You could bleed to death,” Kris added.

Kim then opted to get a second opinion from fertility specialist. Dr. Wong. He suggested that she really consider using a surrogate, due to the high risks a third pregnancy would create.
“Using a surrogate is not an unreasonable option,” he told K…

'Dubai comes to Ghana';Mahama to 'open' plush interchange

President John Mahama is set to commission an ultra-modern Kwame Nkrumah interchange in Accra which is sure to change the landscape of one of the most busiest business centers in Ghana.
The Interchange, a cool 74 million Euros project is a revolutionary piece of infrastructural architecture that has transformed Circle as it is popularly called, into a three-tier interchange set to dissolve the area of heavy traffic.
Brazillian company Gueiroz Galvao Construction was awarded the contract to construct which began in October 2013 with an expected completion date of September 2016.

The Kwame Nkrumah Circle is part of what is known as the Ring Road. It was constructed during the first post-independence government of the Convention People's Party in the 60's. But by 1990s, using the road became a stress-inducing exercise dreaded by motorists.
Now exit Kwame Nkrumah Circle with an 84,000 holding capacity, enter the Kwame Nkrumah Interchange which experts say can hold twice the…

President-elect Donald Trump will take $1 a year as his presidential salary
Trump made the revelation on Sunday nights "60 Minutes," telling Lesley Stahl that he didn't even know what the presidential salary is.

"I think I have to by law take $1, so I'll take $1 a year. But it's a -- I don't even know what it is. Do you know what the salary is?"

Stahl informed him that it's "$400,000 you're giving up."

"No, I'm not going to take the salary. I'm not taking it," he responded.

Trump again said he will release his tax returns "at the appropriate time." He refused to do so during the campaign because he is under routine audit by the IRS.
"Nobody cares," he told "60 Minutes."

"The only one who cares is, you know, you and a few people that asked that question. Obviously, the public didn't care because I won the election very easily. So they don't care. I never thought they did ca…

Pamela Anderson Visits WikiLeaks Founder Julian Assange Again, Bearing More Treats

Pamela Anderson made another visit to the controversial mastermind behind WikiLeaks with goodies in hand.
The 49-year-old model and actress was photographed making a trip to see Julian Assange, the WikiLeaks editor-in-chief, at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London on Sunday. Just like her visit nearly a month ago, Anderson had plenty of treats in tow.
Dressed in a yellow knit dress that hit below the knee and a camel coat slung over her shoulders, Anderson carried a tray full of snacks.

During her previous visit, Anderson called herself a supporter of Assange and joked of providing him with the meal. “He said I tortured him with bringing him vegan food,” the longtime vegan said.
“Pamela has visited Julian a number of times,” Anderson’s publicist told PEOPLE in a statement. “She likes to make him smile — she is a dear supporter of his. She is concerned for his well being, and believes he’s committed no crime and has been treated unkind, and unfairly.”
Assange has claimed political asy…

Trump hedges on some campaign promises on "60 Minutes"

Donald Trump is only days into being the country’s president-elect, and the questions are already piling up for him. In his first extensive post-election interview with “60 Minutes,” Trump answered questions about his policy priorities as president, including which areas might ultimately look a bit different than what he said on the campaign trail. “It’s enormous,” he told correspondent Lesley Stahl with “60 Minutes.” “I’ve done a lotta big things, I’ve never done anything like this. It is -- it is so big, it is so -- it’s so enormous, it’s so amazing.”
Asked whether it took his breath away late last Tuesday night when he realized he would be the 45th president, Trump replied: “A little bit.”

“And I think -- I realized that this is a whole different life for me now,” he added.  
As Trump adjusts to his post-election reality, there are  issues on which his post-election stances don’t quite match his campaign-trail rhetoric -- several of which he addressed with “60 Minutes.” Spea…

After 56 Years in the Industry and Over 200 Films, Jackie Chan ‘Finally’ Gets His Oscar

After his decades-long career in the film industry, Jackie Chan finally got his hands on an Oscar. 
Chan, 62, was awarded an honorary Oscar at the Eighth Annual Governors Awards at the Hollywood and Highland Center in Los Angeles on Saturday night. Tom Hanks, Michelle Yeoh and Chris Tucker presented Chan with the award in the final presentation of the evening.

“As you know the Governors Awards are a chance for the Academy to recognize unique achievements across an artist’s whole body of work, because Jackie Chan, the man that puts the ‘Chan’ in ‘Chan-Tastic,’ because he has worked mostly in martial arts films and action comedies, two genres that have been, for some reason, shall we say, historically underrepresented at the Oscars, a fact that will change if I have any pull on the board of Governors,” Hanks said, garnering laughs from the crowd.

He went on to discuss Chan’s “enormous creativity” before finishing with, “Great acting coms in many different forms, but if you are a…
