Tracy Morgan Car Accident UPDATE: Kevin Roper was driving the Walmart truck that caused Tracy Morgan's crash. He was charged with one count of vehicular homicide and several counts of assault by auto. Kevin plead not guilty and was freed on a $50,000 bond because of a clean driving record.
** UPDATE **
Tracy Morgan is suing Wal-Mart for negligence. One of their drivers, Kevin Roper, plowed into his limo and injured him and several others. Comedian James McNair was killed.
Tracy's suit reads: “Wal-Mart was careless and negligent in the ownership and operation of its motor vehicle, which caused Mr. Morgan to suffer severe personal injuries. As a direct and proximate result of said collision, Mr. Morgan was caused to sustain severe painful bodily injuries, including but not limited to multiple fractures which required multiple surgeries, extensive medical treatment and will require significant physical rehabilitation. Wal-Mart knew, or should have known” that Roper was “awake for more than 24 consecutive hours” before the collision.
Tracy is now recovering at home.
** UPDATE #2 **
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Walmart claims Morgan’s injuries “were caused, in whole or in part, by plaintiffs’ failure to properly wear an appropriate available seatbelt restraint device. By failing to exercise ordinary care in making use of available seatbelts, upon information and belief, plaintiffs acted unreasonably and in disregard of plaintiffs' own best interests."
** UPDATE #3 **
Tracy says: "I can’t believe Walmart is blaming me for an accident that they caused. My friends and I were doing nothing wrong. I want to thank my fans for sticking with me during this difficult time. I love you all. I’m fighting hard every day to get back."

** UPDATE **
A source tells Hollywoodlife.com: “Not only is Amanda in denial over the severity of her ongoing problems, but so is her family. It’s not a shock that she was picked up by the cops … again. It was only a matter of time. There’s this shame attached to mental illness, so unfortunately it’s not treated and it only gets worse. If Amanda was a diabetic, wouldn’t she be given the proper treatment? Of course she would.''
Perez Hilton claims Amanda was on Adderall.
A source tells People: "It's very obvious that she is not 100 percent well. She is still obsessed with her body and spends more time in front of the mirror than she actually works out. She doesn't like when people look at her and has even confronted a few other members."

Jelena isn't going anywhere... ... unless you count this exotic vacation. Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez are SO back on these days that they decided to travel to the Caribbean island of St. Martin together this past weekend... And, of course, they took plenty of Instagram selfies-just none together. That is, except for the tweeted and deleted snap we found -- after a lot of digging – of them exploring the island. Are they trying to trick us??. Because it's not working. LOLz. They're doing a pretty terrible job of hiding their rekindled romance. So, they might as well give up the charade. (Perez Hilton)
