‘Lady In The Lake’ Apple+ Series Forced To Halt Production After Extortion Threats From Baltimore Locals

UPDATED with Endeavor Content’s statement: An Apple TV+ series filming in Baltimore stopped production Friday after several people threatened the producers and tried to extort money from them, Baltimore police said.

A spokesperson for the Baltimore Police Department said the crew was filming around 4 PM in the downtown area when the producers were approached by several people. The group claimed if they didn’t stop filming they would come back and shoot someone, police said.

However, they said no violence would occur if they were paid an unspecified amount. Producers decided to halt filming and seek a new location. Local news outlet The Baltimore Banner reported that drug dealers attempted to extort $50,000 from the production, which producers declined to pay.

“Friday afternoon, on the Baltimore set of our production Lady in the Lake, prior to the arrival of the cast and crew, per their call time, a driver on our production crew was confronted by two men, one of whom brandished a gun directed at our driver, and then they fled the location. We are working with the Baltimore Police Department as the investigation is ongoing,” the studio behind the series, Endeavor Content, said in a statement late Sunday. “The safety and security of our crew, cast and all who work across our productions is our highest priority, and we are thankful no one was injured. Production will resume with increased security measures going forward.”

“It has been a privilege filming ‘Lady in the Lake’ in Baltimore, working with its vibrant community across many areas,” the statement continued. “Our thanks and appreciation to the City of Baltimore, Mayor Brandon M. Scott, the Baltimore Film Office, Maryland Film Office and the Baltimore Police Department for their incredible support as we continue production in the great City of Baltimore and surrounding communities.”

The Apple+ series stars Natalie Portman and has been filming in Baltimore for the past several months.

The series is based on a book by former Baltimore Sun reporter and author Laura Lippman, and also stars Baltimore native Moses Ingram, who recently appeared in the Obi-Wan Kenobi series.

Lady in the Lake takes place in 1960s Baltimore, where an unsolved murder pushes a housewife and mother to reinvent herself as an investigative journalist. That sets her on a collision course with a hard-working woman juggling motherhood, many jobs, and a passionate commitment to advancing Baltimore’s Black progressive agenda,” according to a production description.

Suspect in fatal shooting of Migos rapper Takeoff arrested on murder charge

#Suspect #fatal #shooting #Migos #rapper #Takeoff #arrested #murder #charge

A 33-year-old man was arrested on a murder charge in the shooting of rapper Takeoff, who police on Friday said was an “innocent bystander” when he was struck by gunfire outside a Houston bowling alley.

Patrick Xavier Clark was taken into custody peacefully Thursday night, Houston Police Chief Troy Finner said. Clark’s arrest came one day after another man was charged in connection with the Nov. 1 shooting, which authorities said followed a dispute over a dice game and wounded two other people.

Clark was being held in jail Friday awaiting a bond hearing. Court records do not list an attorney who could speak for him, but indicate he was arrested as he was preparing to leave the country for Mexico.

Born Kirsnick Khari Ball, Takeoff was the youngest member of Migos, the Grammy-nominated rap trio from suburban Atlanta that also featured his uncle Quavo and cousin Offset.

The 28-year-old musician was shot outside the downtown bowling alley at around 2:30 a.m., when police said a dispute erupted as more than 30 people were leaving a private party there. Police previously said another man and a woman suffered non-life-threatening gunshot injuries and that at least two people opened fired.

Police Sgt. Michael Burrow said during a Friday news conference that the gunfire followed a disagreement over a “lucrative” game of dice, but that Takeoff was not involved and was “an innocent bystander.” Finner said police do not know whether Clark was invited to the party or if he knew Takeoff.

Every person on the scene left without talking to police, Burrow said. Some of those people have since been located by the authorities, who have also worked to piece together events with ballistics, video and audio recordings, according to Burrow. He said investigators are still trying to track down witnesses.

“We will be looking to find you,” he said. “It will be easier if you come find us.”

On Wednesday, authorities announced the arrest of Cameron Joshua in connection to the shooting. Joshua was charged with illegally having a gun at the time Takeoff was shot, but prosecutors said the 22-year-old is not believed to have fired the weapon. Christopher Downey, Joshua’s attorney, told reporters that he has not seen anything to suggest that his client was involved in Takeoff’s killing.

Burrow said that investigators believe it was Clark’s gunfire that killed the rapper.

Prosecutors on Friday asked a court to set Clark’s bond at $1 million, arguing he is a flight risk. After Takeoff’s shooting, Clark applied for an expedited passport by submitting the itinerary for an “imminent” flight to Mexico, according to court records. They say he was arrested the day he received the passport and was in possession of a “large amount” of cash.

Fans and other performers, including Drake and Justin Bieber, celebrated Takeoff’s musical legacy in a memorial service last month in Atlanta.

Migos’ record label, Quality Control, mourned Takeoff’s death in a statement posted on Instagram that attributed it to “senseless violence.”

Migos first broke through with the massive hit “Versace” in 2013. They had four Top 10 hits on the Billboard Hot 100, though Takeoff was not on their multi-week No. 1 hit “Bad and Boujee,” featuring Lil Uzi Vert. They put out a trilogy of albums called “Culture,” “Culture II” and “Culture III,” with the first two hitting No. 1 on the Billboard 200 album chart.

Takeoff and Quavo released a joint album “Only Built for Infinity Links” just weeks before his death.

‘Proud’! Jana Kramer Says She’s ‘Started to Love’ Herself for 1st Time ‘Ever’

#Proud #Jana #Kramer #Shes #Started #Love #1st #Time

Wising up! Jana Kramer took to social media to celebrate her birthday — and share what she’s learned after 39 trips around the sun. 

“For the first time probably ever I’ve started to love who I am. What I am, and who I continue to become,” Kramer, 39, wrote via Instagram on Friday, December 2. “38 was a year of an immense amount of growth and healing through some very hard things.” 

The One Tree Hill alum revealed that as she turns another year older, it feels “really good” to be “proud” of herself after searching for “validation” from others for so long. “I have found it from within and that’s the greatest birthday gift I could receive,” she explained. 

Sharing that she “had therapy the other day,” the Michigan native said that she “started to cry” after opening up to her therapist. 

“She asked me what the tears were. I couldn’t answer because I started to cry more and she said, ‘It’s because you’re proud of yourself isn’t it.’ And I shook my head yes and cried even harder but not out of sadness. HAPPY TEARS… cause I never thought I would be here,” she gushed. 

The “Whine Down” podcast host concluded her tribute to self-love by thanking her fans for “all the lessons” and “making me dig in,” noting how “excited” she was to “continue to grow, learn, heal and connect with others” on this “journey with all of you.” 

Kramer has undoubtedly had a few difficult years. The country crooner split from Ian Schinelli in April after six months of dating. In July 2021, she finalized her divorce from ex-husband Mike Caussin, with whom she shares daughter Jolie, 6, and son Jace, 4. 

The pair were known for being transparent about their relationship ups and downs, including when the former NFL player, 35, revealed he was in treatment for sex addiction.

“I acknowledge that certain actions and behaviors have caused issues in my marriage and I am deeply sorry for the pain I have caused Jana,” he said in a statement in September 2016. “I have and will continue to take the steps needed to change who I am as a person in order to be a better husband and father.”

After reconciling and renewing their vows in 2017, the pair got candid about his “relapses” through their podcast and in their 2020 book, The Good Fight, before calling it quits for good. At the time of their split, a source exclusively told Us Weekly that the “Whiskey” singer would continue to be open with her fans through her divorce. 

“Time will heal her wounds, and when she’s ready, she’s going to open up more about the marriage ending,” the insider shared. “She doesn’t hide her emotions … She’s really leaned on the support of her fans. She’ll get DMs and comments from people saying they’ve gone through similar situations and that really helps her.”

During a Red Table Talk appearance in October, Kramer told host Jada Pinkett Smith that Caussin had cheated on her with “more” than 13 women. “I know we’re both in better situations. But I think about this year … my kids won’t wake up at my house on Christmas day. That one’s gonna hurt,” she said while holding back tears. 

Despite their struggles, the former couple reunited earlier this week to celebrate Jace’s 4th birthday. 

“Happy almost 4th birthday my little spidey,” the actress captioned a sweet snap via her Instagram Stories of the exes crouched down with their toddler, who was dressed as Spider-Man.
