Officials in Lubbock, Texas have not charged a married man who fatally shot his mistress’ ex-husband during a child custody dispute.

Chad Read’s widow Jennifer Read released cell phone footage of the verbal altercation that led to Read’s fatal shooting.

In the video, 54-year-old father Chad Read is seen arguing with his ex-wife Christina Read’s new boyfriend Kyle Carruth.

Carruth is heard telling Read to “get off my property.”

Read was there to pick up a son he had with ex-wife Christina Read.

At one point, Carruth went inside the house to retrieve a rifle while Read continued arguing with Christina Read outside.

“Where’s my son at? I’ll go get him. I’m supposed to have him at 3:15,” Chad Read is heard telling Christina Read. “And you’re playing games telling me that I can pick him up at six? I’ve already got the cops on the way to your mom’s house… Because that’s probably where he is.”

Then, Carruth emerged from the house with the rifle and the two men briefly argued on the front porch.

Carruth fired a warning shot at Read’s feet before firing two shots into Read’s chest, killing him.

According to Jennifer Read, Carruth was angry that Read threatened to expose his extramarital affair to his wife, Judge Ann-Marie Carruth whose jurisdiction is the 72nd District Court in Crosby and Lubbock counties.

Through her attorney, Jennifer Read released a statement along with her cell phone footage.

In an affidavit, Jennifer Read accused Christina Read and Kyle Carruth of engaging “in a conspiracy” to murder Chad Read to silence him.

In a Facebook post, Jennifer Read wrote:

“Please share. Make this go viral. Does this look like a man in fear of his life or the life of others? Look at that smile. He is a cold blooded murderer.”

Janet Jackson’s Husband: Meet The Men The Pop Icon Has Married Over The Years

Published

Janet Jackson & Wissam Al Mana

As Janet Jackson’s life takes center stage in a new documentary, learn about the men who have been married to the iconic superstar.

Janet Jackson, 55, is opening up like never before in her new Lifetime and A&E documentary. Janet, which premieres Friday (Jan. 28), features the iconic singer, actress, and dancer getting candid about her professional and personal life. One of the topics Janet discusses is her marriages. She’s been married three times, and all three relationships failed to last long-term. As the world learns more about Janet Jackson, here’s what to know about the three men who have called the multi-talented superstar their wife.

James DeBarge

Janet’s first marriage was to James DeBarge, 58. James, an R&B/soul singer who was a member of the singing family group DeBarge, married Janet in 1984, when he was 21 and she was just 18. The couple dated for two years prior to marrying. At the time, Janet had just released her second solo album Dream Street, which followed her self titled debut in 1982. The marriage was considered an act of rebellion by a teenage Janet against her controlling father, the late Joe Jackson. The relationship was annulled in 1985 due to his alleged drug addiction.

Rumors have persisted over the years that the pair had a secret child together, which James discussed on the series Growing Up Hip-Hop back in 2016. “I’m tired of the secrecy,” he said to his daughter on a clip from the show. “I’m tired of the truth not coming forward, and people being a coward when it comes to it. And I thought it was wise for me to speak out now because it needs to be addressed.” Janet also talked about those rumors in the Janet documentary. “Back in the day they were saying that I had a child and I kept it secret. I could never keep a child away from James,” she said, according to People. “How could I keep a child from their father? I could never do that, that’s not right.”

René Elizondo

Janet’s second marriage was to Mexican dancer and songwriter René Elizondo, 59. They met while René, who is also a music video director, was working on a film. Janet and René got engaged on a beach and tied the knot on March 31, 1991, six years after her split from James. “I needed to just be free of being with somebody that did drugs and all of that,” she said in the doc, per People. “I needed a lift. René was funny, just always had fun together. He was very, very charming.”

Janet and René’s marriage was kept a secret from the public until the pair sadly split in 2000. René reportedly sued Janet for between $10 and $25 million after the divorce, but the exes eventually reached a settlement. She further reflected on her second ill-fated marriage in the documentary. “We were out on the beach, it was raining like crazy, and that’s when he asked me to marry him,” she recalled of René’s proposal. “James never proposed to me. He never gave me a ring or anything like that, so it was different. I wanted it to be it. But I thought that every time.”

Wissam Al Mana

Wissam Al Mana, 47, is the third person to marry Janet. The Qatari billionaire CEO dated the “Rhythm Nation” songstress for several years, before they got married in 2012. Janet kept this relationship pretty private, and didn’t even publicly reveal the marriage until 2013. She said in an interview, “The rumors regarding an extravagant wedding are simply not true. Last year we were married in a quiet, private, and beautiful ceremony.” Fans were shocked once again when they realized that Janet and Wissam welcomed their son Eissa together in January 2017. But just three months later, the couple called it quits, and Janet announced the news herself in a rare video she posted to Instagram.

“I just want to keep it real for you guys for a second – yes I separated from my husband,” Janet said in the clip. She went on to talk about how they’re figuring out details of their divorce in court and added, “The rest is in God’s hands.”

Janet and Wissam still have not finalized their divorce. The exes are continuing to co-parent their son, who recently turned 5. “You’re growing up so fast. Such an intelligent beautiful boy,” Janet wrote on Instagram in her birthday tribute to Eissa. “Wishing you a life full of magical moments. You’re Mama’s Luv.”

Dorinda Medley Blasts Brandi Glanville for Calling Home “Dead Stone Manor” as Brandi Fires Back

Dorinda Medley Blasts Brandi Glanville For Calling Her Home “Dead Stone Manor,” Before Brandi Tells Her to "Settle Down"

On the second season of Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip, several ‘fan favorites’ stayed at Dorinda Medley’s infamous Bluestone Manor. The house was the site of many Real Housewives of New York fights.

During the trip (which hasn’t yet aired), Brandi Glanville became friends with Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge. Andy Cohen recently promised, however, that season 2 will be more dramatic than the first, which was set in Turks and Caicos.

On Brandi’s podcast, Brandi Glanville Unfiltered, she spoke with Vicki about their experience at Dorinda’s house. In certain clips of the conversation (which Brandi released on social media), the star said: “I called it ‘Dead Stone Manor.’ All we did was talk about death . . . There’s like three ex-husbands who were dead.”

Dorinda didn’t appreciate Brandi’s comments, and she responded on Instagram. “Loss is a terrible terrible experience,” said the RHONY alum. “I guess they find it funny.”

She also tagged “@officialtaylorarmstrong” (whose ex-husband committed suicide), and “@mrsjillzarin” (whose husband recently died of cancer).

Brandi clapped back with her own response: “Settle down Dorinda. These are two different clips from the interview. No one is laughing at anyones loss.”

One fan commented on the argument, saying, “When it comes to Dorinda, Brandi needs to CLIP!!!”

The comment referred to a restaurant argument on RHONY, when Dorinda repeatedly screamed at Sonja Morgan, telling her to “clip.”

Over four years later, fans are still confused by Dorinda’s commandment.

‘Ladies Who List’ Exclusive: Tiffani Is Having A Grand Opening Party… But Guess Who Is NOT Welcome?

‘Ladies Who List’ Exclusive: Tiffani Is Having A Grand Opening Party… But Guess Who Is NOT Welcome?

It’s Friday and the weekend is here, which means a brand spanking new episode of ‘Ladies Who List!’

Source: Courtesy OWN / Oprah Winfrey Network

We’ve got an exclusive sneak preview clip of tonight’s episode of ‘Ladies Who List’ for your viewing pleasure. In the clip, Tiffani and Tiana meet up to discuss Tiff’s new office and the grand opening party she’s planning. To Tiana’s surprise, Tiffani reveals she’s invited Robin after recently meeting with her to get to know her better — BUT it does turn out there is one person in their circle who won’t be welcome at the party. It turns out competing closing attorney Cristyl isn’t on the guest list — but Tiffani claims the lack of an invite has less to do with business and is more about just keeping things positive at the party, although she says she wasn’t really feeling the way Cristyl treated Robin at the last event.

Check out the clip below:

What do you think? Is Tiffani creating a bigger problem by excluding Cristyl from her event, rather than just pulling her aside to discuss the issue? What would you do if you were Tiffani?

Here’s what else to expect from the episode:

Tiffani holds a grand reopening of her law firm, only to find that Cristyl has been trying to steal one very important client — Kira! Meanwhile, Robin confronts a longtime client about why he gave his promised listing to another broker.

“Ladies Who List: Atlanta” airs Fridays at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on OWN.
