The former estate of Michael Jackson, Neverland Ranch, is being prepared for sale according to this article.
 
Thomas Barrack Jr. of Colony Capital LLC discusses the estate.
 
“We’ve really just been custodians of an irreplaceable estate and are proud to say we’ve restored it to the original elegance Michael first envisioned,” Barrack said. “We are now considering putting it up for sale.”
 
They also interviewed a broker associate, Thomas LePley, to get an idea of value on the property. “I’d say it’s worth $35 million to $50 million, depending on what they do with it. Barrack has cleaned it up and returned it to perfect condition. It had been neglected.”

Scary moments for a passenger traveling down a highway in Massachusetts.

The photo above shows an ax that flew out of the back of a truck traveling on Rte. 95 in Topsfield, Massachusetts. The State police posted the photo to their Facebook page with this caption below.

"These motorists, whom we are not identifying, endured a very frightening moment shortly before 11 a.m. today as they were driving on Route 95 southbound in Topsfield. A landscaper driving a dump truck in front of them had failed to properly secure an axe, which flew off the truck and struck the windshield of the car behind it. Thankfully, the axe only went halfway through the windshield. The passenger who is partially seen in the photo was shaken up (who wouldn't be?) but not injured."

They also reminded motorists to secure all belongings safely.

The Fashion Meets Music Festival has removed headliner R. Kelly after public backlash from fans, artists, and sponsors.
 
The festival, which takes place at Nationwide Arena in Columbus, released a statement on the matter. “We wanted to make sure we heard the Columbus listeners... to make a statement and support the city we live in,” said spokeswoman Melissa Dickson.
 
The decision came after Columbus-based band Saintseneca removed themselves from the lineup. “We feel his selection as a performer ignores his very serious allegations of sexual violence and assault,” the band released in an online statement.
 
Other acts at the festival include Michelle Williams, O.A.R., and Cold War Kids. There will be no replacement for Kelly’s spot at the festival.

At a show last week in Chicago, a fan began to heckle Lauryn Hill for starting 50 minutes late. According to the article, the first song was “terrible” and the fan flipped off Hill.
 
She then addressed the fan by saying "When I get up on this stage, don't be disrespectful. You can go. Seriously. You can go... I would prefer that. You're not gonna mess [this] up for the rest of these people. You can get your money and go.”
 
The fan was then removed by security. Check out a video of the incident below and read more here.

Farrah Franklin, former member of Destiny’s Child, was arrested for disorderly conduct early Sunday morning. She was released later that day after posting $280 for bail.
 
Franklin, who along with Michelle Williams, replaced members LaTavia Roberson and LeToya Luckett in 2000. Franklin was let go from the group just five months later. “We have to say that Farrah was not kicked out of Destiny’s Child,” Beyonce said in an interview with MTV, “she actually did not show up for three major promotional events.”
 
This was not her first run in with the law. In April 2011 she was arrested for disorderly conduct in California.
