Adam Levine Debuts Rose Tattoo On His Face In New Photo Snapped By Behati Prinsloo

The Maroon 5 vocalist’s wife shared a photo of his brand new ink, as the two relaxed and enjoyed some tequila.

New tattoo alert! Adam Levine seems to have hopped on the face tattoo trend and gotten a rose inked on his face. His wife, Behati Prinsloo, shared a photo of the 42-year-old Maroon 5 singer sitting in the back of a car with the new ink on full display on Tuesday November 30. The singer and model seemed like they were having a nice night out and drinking some Calirosa tequila.

Behati, 33, tagged her husband of seven years and Calirosa in her Instagram story. The former Voice coach was wearing a worn green sweater, and a pair of torn up jeans, as they sat in the car, and he held the bottle of tequila. The new rose tattoo is pretty simple, showing just a black design in the shape of the flower. In later stories, Behati reposted videos from Calirosa that showed the couple taking shots of the tequila.

The new face tattoo is far from Adam’s first. The “Girls Like You” singer is covered in tattoos on his chest, arms and neck. Some of his most well-known tats include having “California” tattooed over his stomach. He also already has a few other floral tattoos, like another delicate flower on his neck.

Adam was kept pretty busy this year with Maroon 5’s touring schedule, and he’ll hit the road with his band again at the end of the year for two Las Vegas shows on December 30 and 31. While the band undoubtedly gave fans plenty of unforgettable concerts on their “MMXXI” tour, there were a few hiccups along the way. He laughed as he had a first in the 20 years of Maroon 5’s career and forgot the words to their hit song “She Will Be Loved.” He didn’t seem to mind, as he joked to the audience about it. “It’s funny because I didn’t even need to admit it because you guys came with me on the journey,” he said. Unfortunately not every moment was as silly, Adam also looked pretty angry, when a fan ran onstage and gave him a hug in the middle of one show. Gotta respect those boundaries!

UPDATE: Lauren Smith-Fields’ Death Ruled An ‘Accident’, Family Challenges Coroner As Police Finally Open Criminal Investigation

UPDATE: Lauren Smith-Fields’ Death Ruled An ‘Accident’, Family Challenges Coroner As Police Finally Open Criminal Investigation

The family of Lauren Smith-Fields—the Black woman who died mysteriously after a date with an older white man, 37-year-old Matthew LaFountain—has finally gotten answers as to the cause of Smith-Field’s death, but it doesn’t change the way they were allegedly treated by the Bridgeport Police Department while they were mourning the loss of their immediate family member and desperately seeking answers.

It also doesn’t mean they’re fully confident in the coroner’s ruling.

According to NBC Connecticut, the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner has determined that Smith-Fields died of “acute intoxication due to the combined effects of fentanyl, promethazine, hydroxyzine, and alcohol,” and her death has officially been ruled an accident.

Now, people who don’t know what it’s like to be treated by law enforcement like their lives don’t matter will think this revelation should cancel any notion of misconduct on the part of the police investigators, but the lawyer for Lauren Smith-Fields’ relatives believes that more exhaustive investigation is needed.

Morevoer, he’s still urging authorities to take a closer look at the last man to see her alive.

“This looks further like a manslaughter,” the family’s lawyer, Darnell Crosland who previously announced that the family would be filing a lawsuit told WTNH.

“It looks more like a murder, and if the police don’t start acting fast, we’re going to have a real big problem on our hands.”

Attorney Crosland is not wrong and it looks like police are finally listening.

NBC reports that Bridgeport, Connecticut police have opened a criminal investigation into Lauren Smith-Fields’ death as result of the medical examiner’s report. The investigation will be led by the Police Narcotics and Vice Division and they will be assisted by the Drug Enforcement Administration, authorities confirmed in a statement.

“The Bridgeport Police Department continues to treat the untimely death of Lauren Smith-Fields as an active investigation as we are now refocusing our attention and efforts to the factors that lead to her untimely death.  We have engaged several partners to assist with this portion of the investigation.  Once again, we offer our sincerest condolences to the friends and family of Lauren Smith-Fields and ask that anyone with information to please contact 203 576-TIPS,” Police Chief Rebeca Garcia said in the statement.“

Additionally, attorney Darnell Crosland told NBC that the family is still awaiting the results of an independent autopsy and that the medical examiner’s findings don’t cure the police department’s “lack of process,” but make it worse.

If the police had “better investigated the scene and the man Smith-Fields was with”, he said, the family would have more answers, he told the news organization.

Earlier this month, NBC published the full letter Lauren Smith-Fields’ family sent city leaders that seems like it was completely ignored until now.

Here’s part of that letter:

On Monday December 13th my family began to call and text our beloved Daughter, Sister, Niece, and Friend Lauren Smith-Fields continuously with no prevail. With Lauren being such the family oriented young woman that she was we knew this was completely out of character for her not to respond. Around approximately 8:00pm, Lauren’s Mother Shantell and Brother Lakeem decided to go to Laurens home at 33 Plymouth Street. Upon their arrival they were met with a note on the door stating “If you’re looking for Lauren call this number”. Completely confused and frightened Lauren’s Mother and Brother contacted Laurens landlord Hector. Hector then informed them that “Something bad happened” and that Lauren was indeed deceased. Hector then proceeded to give them a card with Detective Cronin’s phone number on it. Lauren’s brother Lakeem then called Dt. Cronin. 

When Dt. Cronin spoke with Lauren’s brother Lakeem, he told him that Lauren was indeed expired and her body had been removed from the scene. He told Mr. Jetter that Lauren met a man later identified as Mr. Matthew Lafountain on a dating website called Bumble for the first time. He explained that Mr. LaFountain came to visit Lauren and she seemed to be feeling ill. He went further into detail and told Mr. Jetter that Mr. Lafountain stated Lauren went to meet Mr. Jetter at 9:30pm and stayed outside for a few minutes, came back, and began to vomit uncontrollably. Dt. Cronin then told Lauren’s brother that Mr. Lafountain also stated that he carried her into her bed, and laid with her checking on her twice, once at 3:00am and the next at 6:30am when he noticed she was bleeding out of her nose and mouth. Lakeem then asked Dt. Cronin “Are you investigating this?” He responded to Lakeem and said “I don’t think there is anything to investigate, he seems like a really great guy. I was here when the medical examiner investigated and there are no signs of foul play and they were both fully dressed”. Dt. Cronin then stated that he would be willing to come to the scene at 33 Plymouth Street and speak with them and they agreed. They continued to wait in front of the home upset, grieving, and confused for 45 minutes to be unmet with Dt. Cronin or anyone from the Bridgeport Police Department.  Mr. Jetter and Ms. Fields then left the scene of the incident and gave Dt. Cronin’s phone number to Lauren’s father Everett Smith. Mr. Smith then called Dt. Cronin to clarify then information given earlier to Lauren’s brother Lakeem. When Mr. Smith called Dt. Cronin he was met with a response that said “I already talked to your ex wife, and you can talk to her”. Mr. Smith then stated that he had his own questions that he wanted to ask Dt. Cronin that were not previously asked. Dt. Cronin then said it was late, he was off work, and could not continue to communicate. Upset and feeling like they were not being heard, Mr. Jetter called Dt. Cronin again for Dt. Cronin to answer and say “Why do you keep calling me, I told you everything I know” and continued to hang up in his face. 

No one deserves that kind of treatment, and Black people know this treatment all too well.

Rachel Lindsay Reveals The Secrets To Her Successful Marriage: We’re ‘Not Performative’

Published

‘The Bachelorette’ alum gushed about her amazing relationship with her husband Bryan Abasolo during an interview on ‘The View.’

Rachel Lindsay, 36, and Bryan Abasolo, 41, couldn’t be more in love! The former Bachelorette opened up to why she thinks that her marriage from season 13 of the hit reality series has lasted for over two years on an interview with The View on Tuesday January 25. She credited her and Bryan focusing on themselves and their love for one another rather than the public eye with why she’s been happily married since the show ended.

Naturally, putting the relationship first has proven to be a major part of why Rachel and Bryan have stayed happily married. “I think the fact that Bryan and I are not performative in our relationship. We don’t try to be who Bachelor Nation wants us to be. We don’t try to do certain things for social media. We’re just ourselves,” she explained.

Rachel continued and said that backlash to her choosing Bryan on the show, only drove them closer together, because they tuned out so much from The Bachelorette fans and got to really connect with one another. “We immediately removed ourselves away from the spotlight, went back to our reality. I went back to work at the law firm. Bryan moved to Dallas for me, and we just surrounded ourselves with people we know, we love, and we trust, and that built a strong foundation in our relationship from the very beginning,” the Miss Me With That author said.

Since the audience was “against” Rachel’s pick, and the pair had an “us against the world” feeling, they got to really explore the key parts of building a relationship and falling in love. “We just really took the time to get to know each other, to encourage one another, to support each other, to love each other, and make sacrifices. We’ve moved all across the country to support one another’s careers, and I think having that foundation at the beginning is really key,” she told The View.

Before her segment finished, Rachel said she “loved” Brian rather than was “infatuated” with him on the show, which is what she said was part of what set her relationship apart from some other Bachelor contestants, whose relationships may not have lasted. “We connected on another level, and because he makes sense to me in my real life. I think a lot of time people go on the show, and they pick the person that they fantasize about, or the person they would never be able to get in real life,” she said, before making a joke about some of the guys who are featured on The Bachelor. “A lot of the men do that.”

Last July, New Orleans ‘ Pelicans center Jaxson Hayes was arrested after police were alerted by his girlfriend’s cousin that Jaxson was acting erratically. When police arrived to check on things at the residence, Jaxson refused to let police in the house and acted in a manner consistent with the description in the call placed to police.

After refusing to let police check on the safety of his girlfriend, a tussle ensued and Jaxson pushed an officer and ended up being tased at the scene. While Jaxson was being taken into custody, he claimed he couldn’t breathe which, launched the use of force investigation within the LAPD. Now, almost 6 months later, the LAPD is bringing charges against Jaxson for that night, according to TMZ.

Jaxson is being charged with 12 misdemeanor charges including domestic violence and using violence against a police officer, inflicting corporal injury, destroying property, use of force, resisting a police officer, and a few other charges.

There is no word yet how the NBA will handle the situation, but after 6 months with nothing having happened we doubt they will address the situation.

The Los Angeles Police Protective League, which represents thousands of LAPD officers, is pushing for the NBA to address the situation and not let Jaxson’s alleged abuse of an officer be ignored.
