Former Neck Deep Member Lloyd Roberts “Sickened” By Accusations, Working With Police To Clear His Name

A teenaged Twitter user accused guitarist Lloyd Roberts of engaging in inappropriate communications with her, which forced Roberts to step down from Neck Deep. Her accusations have not been substantiated. In a statement to the Daily Post, Roberts said he was working with police and lawyers to recuperate his reputation:

Last weekend there were some very serious allegations made against myself and other band members of Neck Deep. I was horrified and sickened by these accusations. I have now instructed lawyers and contacted the police, in order to clear my name and to be proactive in confronting these allegations. I took the immediate decision to take a break from the band, which was a gut-wrenching decision as we have all worked so hard to get where we have and I do not want to let any of our fans down. I hope our fans understand.

Read a statement from the band dated August 23 here

this is going to be a long post
HATE:
 People that act like they are sorry, but are actually only sorry that they have been outed. This nasty piece of work pictured above is unfortunately still the mayor of San Diego. His name is Bob Filner and he looks like what a cross between a mole and a human male would look like.

He has been sexually harassing a lot of women. The victims have been coming forward for about 5 weeks now and it is currently at 16 accusers.

What the women had to say:

Irene McCormack Jackson was the first victim to go public, claiming Filner often asked her to have sex with him, would hold her in the now-infamous “Filner Headlock” and once told her she would do a better job if she worked without panties.

If you want to be grossed out even more by this man, I dare you to click on the “Filner Headlock” link.

[Peggy Shannon], a great-grandmother claims San Diego Mayor Bob Filner kissed her on her lips, repeatedly asked her out and called her “his girl” while she worked at City Hall.

This isn’t everything that he said to Mrs. Shannon.

On Monday, Donna Frye, a former member of the City Council who once worked for Mr. Filner, held a news conference with two lawyers to outline charges she said she had heard from women, including workers and constituents.

“The mayor’s pattern of behavior has become clear to me,” she said. “It begins with checking a woman’s availability through asking her about a spouse or a boyfriend, then isolating the women somewhere off where they can talk. He then requests dinner, a later meeting, making unwanted sexual comments or physically imposing himself upon her.”

There has been a lot going on, but here are the general dates. If there are other important ones let me know!

July 11 - As a result of the flurry of accusations his office releases this apology video.
but then… he decides to take back that apology….
July 16 - Filner says he doesn’t think he is guilty of sexual harrassment
July 22 - Filner releases a statement saying he doesn’t believe the claims are valid and will be relying on due process of law.
July 26 - At this point (I believe) 7 women have accused him. He announces that he will be going into behavior therapy, for only TWO WEEKS, which would be starting on August 5 and he was dead set on returning to office on August 19.
*At this point a normal person would have resigned…
August 9/10 - He is already out of therapy. (His Chief of Staff and attorneys had conflicting dates regarding the end date) Completing it one week early. He couldn’t even stay and humor people for those two weeks. Then he took the second week off as personal time.

Since his return, almost everyone has been telling him to resign…

The outrage is overwhelming.

Roughly 81 percent of city residents want him to resign, according to a poll conducted by CNN affiliate KGTV. Another affilaite, KFMB, reported local radio hosts hired skywriters to spell out “Surrender Bob” over areas of the city last week.

Armed with clipboards and pens, volunteers hit the streets of San Diego over the weekend to begin collecting signatures for a recall effort. They need more than 101,000 signatures by September 26.

“We’re going to be everywhere. We’re going to be at sporting events. We’re going to be at street fairs, arts shows – you name it, we will be out there,” Dave McCulloch, an organizer, told KFMB on Sunday.

Apparently, there is also news that he didn’t pay his city credit card which had a bill of $11,000 on it. This dude just makes me tired…

Back to the accusations:
So, I have been trying to find what sort of evidence other than their own stories the women have, but I haven’t really found anything other than mentions that they have evidence. If anyone has a link to another news article or video that says what this evidence is or contains, please let me know! Though Filner sounds like a d-bag, he deserves the due process of law that he so ardently desires.

A pissed off San Diego Mayor announced today that he has had enough of the weather already. Kevin Faulconer told members of the press, “I don’t know how they did it, but those climate change hooligans have gone and turned San Diego into Atlanta and by golly I want it turned back, pronto!”

Taylor Swift Fan Manages To Get On Stage With The Singer Before Being Taken Off By Four Security Guards

Just under a month after one over-enthusiastic fan gave Taylor Swift a fright by grabbing her ankle during one of her ‘1989′ gigs, another fan has actually managed to get up on stage with the singer.

Before being dragged off by four security guards, that is.

Look, we know everyone wants a piece of Swifty these days, but this is most definitely not cool, not funny, and not really fair on the 25-year-old.

CAN A GIRL NOT PERFORM A KILLER SET FOR HER FANS WITHOUT BEING INTERRUPTED? JEEZ.

T-Swiz was performing ‘Style’ when the crazy fan decided they wanted to be her next special guest, but despite noticing the kerfuffle that was going on behind her, she carried on like a true professional.

Obviously.

Law enforcement sources have told TMZ, who have footage of the incident, that the 26-year-old ‘snuck into’ Tay’s gig at San Diego’s Petco Park, having evaded security guards trying to chuck him out several times.

The fan reportedly ‘charged’ onto the stage, but four security guards ‘immediately pounced on him’ and eventually took him away.

He allegedly put up one heck of a fight though, with one guard even breaking a rib in the process of taking him away.

TMZ reports that he was ‘booked for felony and misdemeanor battery, and obstruction’. His bail is apparently set at $35K.

Last month, when Swifty’s tour hit Canada’s Rexall Place, she suffered another fan fright, when one enthusiastic crowd-goer decided to grab her ankle while she was belting out the epic ‘Bad Blood’.

Not cool, mate.

Instagram user @allenavw posted a video of the fan practically lunging at Taylor, writing: “Some crazy town grabbed at Swifty Swift tonight! Jeez buddy, keep your hands to yourself.

“Glad security was on him right away and of course Taylor carried on like a pro! @taylorswift #taylorswift #1989 #1989worldtour #yeg.”

Yikes.

We’ve said it once, and we’ll say it again. Going to a gig is not the same as going to Madame Tussauds. LEAVE POPSTARS/ROCKSTARS/MUSICIANS ALONE, YEAH?
