Ben Roethlisberger Settles Rape Lawsuit

Ben Roethlisberger has settled the lawsuit filed against him by a woman named Andrea McNulty. As a lot of you know, Andrea filed the lawsuit back in 2009 after claiming Ben raped her while he was in town for a golf tournament back in 2008. It is unclear if Andrea was paid in the settlement, but it is probably safe to assume she was. If you’re not familiar with the story, allegedly Ben lured McNulty into his Harrah’s penthouse suite and forced her to have sex. She claimed that Harrah’s employees covered up the whole thing to protect Ben Roethlisberger. McNulty’s story probably has some truth to it, considering Ben was accused of similar actions just one year later. A woman came forward in Georgia claiming Ben sexually assaulted her after a long night of drinking. However, it should be noted that no charges were filed for that incident. Hopefully Ben can somehow manage to make it through 2012 without sexually assaulting someone. Maybe that was his New Year’s resolution? “Try not to rape someone in 2012…oh and buy a puppy.” It’s a proven fact rapists love puppies…puppies and ski masks.  

Heidi and Spencer – FINALLY Divorcing

Oh… so this isn’t some transparent act to get attention? Well these two had US going, that’s for sure. Fifteen months after saying “I do,” reality TV stars Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt are headed for divorce. Heidi was the one who filed for divorce Friday in Santa Monica, Calif., citing irreconcilable differences.

Representatives for Montag and Pratt did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Montag began dating the 26-year-old Pratt while filming MTV’s reality show The Hills. The couple’s April 2009 wedding was featured on the show. Seeing that their entire relationship revolved around an idiotic excuse for a reality show – did they not see this coming?

Court documents show the two were legally married May 25, 2009, and separated on their one-year anniversary. The media-hungry pair published a book together last year: “How to Be Famous: Our Guide to Looking the Part, Playing the Press, and Becoming a Tabloid Fixture.”

Montag filed for a legal separation on June 8, which some dismissed as a publicity stunt (like us) since they were still seen together and seemed to be trying to play up their “depression.”

In the divorce filing, she asked the court to deny spousal support to Flesh Beard.
