While taking in the Thai nightlife during a break from her concert tour, Rihanna posed for a pic with an animal called a “Slow Loris.” Trouble is, it’s endangered.

In what is an all too common, and very illegal practice, two men on the island of Phuket were charging people to have their photo taken with the endangered animal. After hundreds of thousands of people ‘liked’ the photo on instagram, Thai authorities were in an understandable state of ‘dislike.’ They set up a sting – and the peddlers, one 20 and one 16 years old had two of the protected animals in their possession.

Rihanna Slow LorisRihanna’s caption for the instagram photo? “Look who was talkin dirty to me! #Thailand #nightlife” 

I’m guessing the two guys arrested – not so much the Slow Loris – were speaking some choice dirty words of their own as they were  hauled away!

According to the LA Times, (via the Guardian) “The large-eyed, long-trunked mammal is closely related to lemurs and lorisoids and is commonly found in South and Southeast Asia. It is a protected species in Thailand but is often used by poachers in tourists’ photo ops.”

The two young culprits face a possession of protected animals charge, which reportedly carries a four-year prison sentence and $1,300 fine.

Authorities have been trying to crack down on vendors exploiting wildlife in popular tourist. Rihanna’s photo brought attention to the problem without her even knowing it.

Oddly enough, Rihanna also posted photos of an illegal live from a sex show a Phuket red-light district. That apparently did not lead to any arrests.

Former Law And Order Actress Representing Herself In Court? Diane Neal Claims Her Attorneys In Abuse Case Dropped Her, Leaving Her To Fend For Herself

Published

on

In an emotional, now deleted instagram post, actress Diane Neal claims her attorneys have dropped her – leaving the actress who once played assistant district attorney Casey Nowak to try her hand at being an attorney in real life.

Neal has been embroiled in a vicious legal battle that has spanned more than two years. It began when Neal filed a lawsuit alleging her ex, magician JB Benn, was a “manipulative and maniacal fraudster,” who had “defrauded her of millions” and “violently inflicted emotional distress,” according to The Daily Beast. She claims Benn subjected her to “a campaign of isolation, terror and (physical and sexual) assault, and destroyed her reputation.” She also claims he once cut her dogs throat. In turn, Benn has a lawsuit against Neal, claiming she owes him money for property they shared, and that she frequently threatened him. Part of his case: a damning recording in which the female voice, which he claims is Neal, threatens him and his dog. Listen to that tape HERE. It’s intense.

The truth is, the story is so full of battling accusations that it’s probably best to read the FULL list chronicled in this Oxygen article.

But today, in an emotional instagram post which she later deleted, (but copies have which have been retained and posted) a dramatic turn. Neal claims her attorneys have dropped her with no warning.

She speaks directly to her camera phone, saying, “So this is my version of hell. And there he is walking right past me right there” she says, referencing a man whose face cannot be seen. “So, I have been put in a situation by my own attorneys who decided to drop me as a client yesterday afternoon with absolutely no warning, wherein I have to represent myself in court. Because this is what happens to victims of abuse. My attorney yesterday accused me of having an inappropriate relation with (unintelligible**), which is not at all even remotely, a thousand times not true. Has done all kinds of things and … saying it was my fault for being abused. So wish me luck. It’s terrifying, but I am doing this for every woman who can’t do it for themselves. I stand for all of us.”

**please note that the words here were difficult to make out. We have our interpretations but don’t want to speculate without confirmation.

It’s unclear what the nature of the current court hearing is intended to cover today.
