Puerto Rico Tribune: Jada Pinkett Speak On Will Smith Divorce Rumors, Chris Rock Oscar Slap

Spread the news

The content originally appeared on: Urban Islandz

Jada Pinkett Smith says she and Will Smith are moving forward together amid weeks of divorce rumors. The actress also addressed the infamous Oscar slap while calling for Will and Chris Rock reconcile.

Weeks after the shocking event, Jada Pinkett-Smith has finally broken her silence on the Oscars moment where her husband Will Smith smacked Chris Rock after he joked about her bald head. The joke was a sensitive moment for both Pinkett-Smith and her husband as she suffers from Alopecia which is why she is bald.

The moment was seen by thousands of people worldwide as they watched the illustrious show live. Will Smith had apologized to Chris Rock, but this is the first time Jada is addressing the incident on their Facebook family show called the Red Table Talk.

The show’s current episode focused on Alopecia. Pinkett-Smith even has a guest who details her very emotional story about her young daughter committing suicide after experiencing Alopecia as a pre-teen.

According to Jada, thousands of people reached out to her in sympathy after the incident.

“This is a really important ‘Red Table Talk‘ on Alopecia. Considering what I’ve been through with my own health and what happened at the Oscars, thousands have reached out to me with their stories,” she began.

“I’m using this moment to give our alopecia family an opportunity to talk about what it’s like to have this condition and to inform people about what alopecia actually is,” she added.

For the first time, she also directly addressed the slap Will Smith dealt Chris Rock after he told the unscripted joke that offended the Smiths.

“Now about Oscar night, my deepest hope is that these two intelligent, capable men have an opportunity to heal, talk this out and reconcile,” she said.

“The state of the world today, we need them both. And we all actually need one another more than ever. Until then, Will and I are continuing to do what we have done for the last 28 years, and that keeps figuring out this thing called life together,” she added.

Will has faced major backlash for his actions, including having his first Oscars for the biopic King Richard stripped away and being banned from the event for a decade, his movies being stalled or reportedly canceled. He has generally fallen out of favor with many people, especially in the black community, who viewed his actions towards another black man as humiliating and emasculating.

In the latest episode, Jada Pinkett-Smith, along with her mother, Adrienne Banfield-Norris, and daughter, Willow Smith, delved into her anxiety caused by Alopecia. Pinkett-Smith has never been shy about her struggle with the hair loss phenomenon and would often update her fans about the reasons she has been tying up her hair or just deciding to big chop everything and keep a low buzz look. However, she spoke about having her hair highlighted before thousands of people across the world.

As the three discussed the night’s events, Pinkett-Smith hinted at the hurtful joke by Chris Rock as she pointed out feeling “shame” due to her losing her luscious locks over the past couple of years.

“One of the reasons I thought this show was really important is because I had so much outreach from people who suffer from alopecia, have children who suffer from alopecia, and they don’t talk about it because there’s so much shame around it,” she said.

“There’s so many people walking around who have Alopecia and that we don’t even know. I felt like it was so important to allow the alopecia community, our brothers and sisters, to tell their story. I think that people don’t understand what Alopecia is and they don’t understand the effects of it,” she added.

In the meantime, Chris Rock has not addressed the event in detail, only previously saying he would when the time was right. In recent weeks he has also joked about it as he spoke at Dave Chappelle’s stand-up session earlier this month and joked about a man who tried to attack Chappelle thinking he was Will Smith.

Rock also recently briefly touched on the topic during a stand-up set at the Royal Albert Hall in London.

“I’m okay, if anybody was wondering,” he said. “Got most of my hearing back…. Don’t expect me to talk about the bulls—. I’ll talk about it at some point… on Netflix,” he said.

Puerto Rico Tribune: US lifts Cuba flight restrictions imposed under Trump

Spread the news

The content originally appeared on: CNN

The administration of President Joe Biden on Wednesday revoked a series of restrictions on flights to Cuba imposed by his predecessor, including ending a prohibition on US airline flights to Cuban airports other than Havana.

The US Transportation Department (USDOT) issued the order at the request of Secretary of State Antony Blinken, who said the action was “in support of the Cuban people, and in the foreign policy interests of the United States.”
The White House last month had signaled the planned move as part of a broader revision of policy toward Cuba. The flight restrictions have been lifted effective immediately.
The Trump administration had issued a series of aviation restrictions in 2019 and 2020 in a bid to increase US economic pressure on the Cuban government. read more
They included barring U.S. carriers from flying to eight international airports in Cuba outside of Havana including those in Camaguey, Cayo Coco, Cayo Largo, Cienfuegos, Manzanillo, Matanzas and Santiago de Cuba.

Under President Donald Trump, USDOT imposed a cap on charter flights to Cuba at 3,600 per year and later suspended private charter flights to Cuba. The department also barred charter to flights to any Cuban airports except Havana.
Then Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Cuba “uses tourism and travel funds to finance its abuses and interference in Venezuela. Dictators cannot be allowed to benefit from U.S. travel.”
USDOT under Trump did allow authorized public charters to and from Havana and other authorized charter flights “for emergency medical purposes, search and rescue, and other travel deemed to be in the interest of the United States.”
With US airlines facing full flights and some facing employee shortages it is not clear how many new flights to Cuba might be added.
As a result of the order, USDOT dismissed as moot pending applications for emergency exemptions and for the allocation of Havana public charter flights.

Puerto Rico Tribune: Police Investigating Master P’s Daughter’s Death, Suspect Drug OD

Spread the news

The content originally appeared on: Urban Islandz

The family of Master P was thrown into mourning a couple of days ago when his 29-year-old daughter Tytyana Miller suddenly passed away.

The Los Angeles Police Department is continuing its investigation into the cause of her death, and now there are reports from TMZ that the initial evidence supports a fatal overdose. The theory is supported by the fact that police found drug paraphernalia at the scene. Even though they found the utensils used for drugs, they said they did not find any drugs on the scene.

In the meantime, an autopsy has already been completed. However, toxicology results usually take about three weeks to come back in. It may not come as a shock to Master P, who shared the tragic news with his followers on Instagram and acknowledged that his daughter had been battling drug addiction and mental illness.

In the initial post, he said, “Our family is dealing with an overwhelming grief for the loss of my daughter Tytyana. We respectfully request some privacy so that our family can grieve. We appreciate all of the prayers love and support. Mental illness & substance abuse is a real issue that we can’t be afraid to talk about. With God, we will get through this. #MyAngel.”

Before her untimely death, Tytyana Miller opened up about her battles. She previously shared her addiction struggles in a 2016 episode of WETV’s Growing Up Hip Hop. Both her father and brother, Romeo Miller, can be seen trying to encourage her to get the help she needs.

She also shared how much their support and love for her meant. She also gave her reasons for not wanting rehab before her father interjected, pleading with her to get professional help.

“I think we should get some professional help just to make sure you stay on track. Let’s not say you don’t want to go to rehab. I think you should at least try because I don’t want you to go back to this,” he said at the time.

The tough lesson hasn’t been lost on the veteran No Limit rapper, as he has already stated that he will dedicate part of his life to helping others who are also battling addiction.

Master P also declared that he would turn to his faith system and trust that God would carry him through this harrowing experience. The “I Miss My Homies” rapper also acknowledged that many families are dealing with losing their loved ones due to mental illness and substance abuse.

Because of this, he intends to invest his time, resources, and passion toward helping other families affected by these types of issues.

“Our healing process will not end in grief, we will celebrate my daughter’s life. Tytyana was inspiring, uplifting, artistic and a loving person who deeply cared for others,” he added.

Romeo Miller also shared a heartfelt tribute on Instagram when his sister died.

“We appreciate all of the prayers, love, and support, and although this is sad times, I’m forever grateful for the memories I did have with my amazing sister. Love on your loved ones, life is short. The silver lining, I know she’s in a way better place and finally at peace and free,” Romeo Mill said.

Master P, whose real name is Percy Robert Miller, has nine children.

In a new statement shared on his Instagram, Master P thanked everyone who offered him support and prayers.

“I would like to thank everyone for all of the love, prayers and support,” the hip hop mogul wrote. “The only way that we are going to heal and grow from this is with the truth. It has been a long and painful journey for our family, my daughter has been battling with this since 2015. Mental illness and substance abuse is a real issue and we hope to turn this tragedy into a testimony. As a father, I have always established parameters to protect my children. Unfortunately, when they become adults, they have the legal right to choose who to have relationships with whether healthy or unhealthy.”

Puerto Rico Tribune: Federales acusan a 13 personas de posesión y distribución de opioides en Ponce

Spread the news

The content originally appeared on: Radio Isla TV

El 24 de mayo de 2022, un gran jurado federal en el Distrito de Puerto Rico emitió el miércoles, una acusación contra siete mujeres y seis hombres del municipio de Ponce por supuesta conspiración para poseer con la intención de distribuir sustancias controladas, y una doctora en medicina, acusada Julia Torres Ortiz, por fraude a la atención médica, anunció el fiscal federal W. Stephen Muldrow.

“Simplemente no se puede tolerar la prescripción y distribución de opioides sin tener en cuenta las consecuencias potencialmente letales”, dijo Muldrow en declaraciones escritas.

“Seguiremos trabajando con nuestros socios encargados de hacer cumplir la ley para responsabilizar a los delincuentes que planean beneficiarse de la prescripción de medicamentos médicamente innecesarios”, añadió.

“El objetivo de la DEA es claro, la DEA hará todo lo posible para hacer que nuestras comunidades sean más seguras y saludables, y para revertir las tendencias devastadoras de violencia y sobredosis relacionadas con las drogas que plagan nuestras comunidades”, dijo Renita Foster, agente especial a cargo de la DEA, División del Caribe. “No descansaremos hasta erradicar la narcoviolencia”,a bundó.

La acusación formal alega que desde enero de 2017 y hasta abril de 2021, los acusados ​​conspiraron a sabiendas e intencionalmente para poseer con la intención de distribuir oxicodona (comúnmente conocida como Percocet) y alprozolam (comúnmente conocido como Xanax). El acusado Romualdo Matos Rodríguez distribuyó los narcóticos desde su residencia en Ponce y otros lugares cercanos, todo para obtener ganancias y ganancias financieras significativas.

Los cómplices compraban pastillas en las farmacias y se las devolvían al acusado Romualdo Matos-Rodríguez para que las distribuyera en su casa y en otros lugares cercanos.

Los acusados ​​son: Leximara Santiago-Martínez; Edna Caridad Cruz Vélez; Solmarie Gautier-Díaz; Ramón Costa Pérez; David Santos-Soto; José Manuel Santos-Bodón, alias “Manuel”; Gloria Elena Mercado Millán; José Alberto Ortiz-Flores, alias “Berto”; Jessenia Díaz-Torres; Edgardo Iván García-Santiago, alias “Meru”; Naomi Rosario-López; y Regina Santiago-Martínez, alias “Gina”.

El acusado Romualdo Matos-Rodríguez enfrenta una acusación de decomiso de su propiedad, una residencia ubicada en Urbanización Villa Dos Ríos, Calle Yagüez, en Ponce.

La acusada Julia Torres-Ortiz enfrenta dos cargos de fraude de atención médica por recetar medicamentos, que luego fueron pagados por Triple-S Advantage, un plan de seguro médico, utilizando su certificado de registro, licencia médica y licencia de sustancias controladas vencidos de la DEA. La acusada Torres-Ortiz tenía un Identificador de proveedor nacional (NPI), que Triple-S Advantage utilizó para transmitir el pago de los medicamentos recetados por ella, a pesar de carecer de autoridad legal para hacerlo.

Triple-S Advantage es un plan Medicare Advantage (MA). Los planes MA pagan las reclamaciones presentadas por los proveedores por los servicios prestados a los beneficiarios de Medicare. El NPI es un estándar de la Ley de Portabilidad y Responsabilidad del Seguro Médico (HIPAA). Es un número único emitido por los Centros de Servicios de Medicare y Medicaid para identificar a un proveedor de atención médica individual específico, incluido un médico específico, como el acusado Torres-Ortiz.

El Fiscal Federal Adjunto (AUSA) y Jefe Adjunto de la Unidad de Recuperación de Activos y Lavado de Dinero Myriam Fernández-González, y AUSA Manuel Muñiz-Lorenzi están a cargo de la acusación del caso. Si son condenados por el cargo de conspiración, los acusados ​​enfrentan una sentencia de hasta 20 años de prisión. Si es declarada culpable de fraude de atención médica, Julia Torres-Ortiz enfrenta hasta 10 años de prisión.

Una acusación es simplemente una acusación y se presume que todos los acusados ​​son inocentes hasta que se pruebe su culpabilidad más allá de toda duda razonable en un tribunal de justicia.
