Gunman shoots ex-wife 4 times on day of court appearance for child custody battle, deputies say
HARRIS COUNTY, Texas (KTRK) — A man accused of shooting his ex-wife four times Monday morning, the day they were scheduled to appear in court for a child custody hearing, has been arrested.

Harris County sheriff’s deputies were called to a home on Memorial Crossing Drive near Memorial Falls Drive in response to a shooting/home invasion around 3:30 a.m. Monday.

A preliminary investigation revealed that a Andrea Wright’s ex-husband cut off all power to her home, broke into the back window and shot her four times.

Aaron B. Wright was located and arrested later Monday morning and booked into the Harris County Jail, according to Sheriff Ed Gonzalez. He’s charged with aggravated assault.

Andrea is in stable condition, Gonzalez said.

According to Harris County Deputy Investigator John Mook, the couple has been divorced for about a year.

Their four children between the ages of 5 and 12 were home, sleeping in their beds during the shooting, according to Mook. They were all uninjured.

Investigators say Aaron may have anticipated losing custody of the kids when the pair was scheduled to appear in court Monday for a child custody hearing.

Aaron reportedly used the power box on the side of the home, which was unlocked at the time of the shooting, to cut off the power.

When asked if the ex-husband had made threats before, Mook said he had a history with Andrea’s new boyfriend.

“I do understand that he has threatened the new boyfriend multiple times,” Mook said. “I’m sure this was a contentious divorce as well. We’re looking into all of that.”

Surveillance video shows a second suspect with Aaron at the scene. Deputies believe the second suspect is his new girlfriend.

It is unclear if she was also arrested when Aaron was taken into custody Monday.

The pair reportedly drove to the home in Aaron’s work truck, parked down the street and approached on foot. They both fled the scene on foot, according to Mook.

The four children are safe with their grandmother, according to investigators.

A GoFundMe account has been set up to help the family with expenses.

“I was shocked. I tried to maintain a good relationship with him and I thought we had an understanding. Now I am confused what made him do it.

“I thought we were going to die. He smashed the window which sent glass everywhere and made it even harder to escape and put out the fire.

“We covered the 170,000 baht (£3,900) repair bill by ourselves. We also lost the watermelons we were supposed to deliver which cost us another 50,000 baht (£1,150).”

She added that they reported the incident to the police, who later arrested Niwat and made him take part in a re-enactment of the attack in Nakhon Si Thammarat province.

He reportedly confessed to setting his ex-lover’s car alight be cause he was devastated over the split and said that she owed him money.

Niwat told local media he was not hiding from the police and was waiting for them to arrest him.

He said: “My heart was still broken. I told her not to come to Nakhon Si Thammarat until I get better.

“She took everything from me and now she’s giving it to the other person.

“I have not been hiding from the police. They just didn’t arrest me.

“I’m ready to be imprisoned but she has to pay me what she owes me so we can be fair.’

Police Captain Rakkiat Chotsak said that officers are still working on the case.

He said: “We interviewed and interrogated all witnesses and the evidence was already collected.

“We initially invited the man who was allegedly on the video for questioning but he did not show up.

“An arrest warrant was issued and we found him and he confessed to starting the fire.

“We’re not gathering his testimony and interviewing all the witnesses to know the full situation before he can be charged.”

DMX Mourned By Ex-Wife Tashera Simmons With Touching Tribute: ‘Everything We Went Through Was Necessary’

Tashera Simmons posted a poignant tribute to her late ex-husband DMX on her 50th birthday, remembering the good times with her ‘best friend.’

DMX[1]‘s ex-wife, Tashera Simmons[2], paid tribute to her “best friend” and “mentor” on Instagram one day after the rapper tragically passed away[3] at the age of 50. What should have been a happy celebration — her own 50th birthday — became a day of mourning for Tashera, who shares four kids with the late “Party Up” artist. She honored DMX with a beautiful montage of old family photos and a heartfelt message.

“Happy 50th birthday to me,” Tashera wrote in the caption, using the crying and broken heart emoji. Her poignant video was about the triumphs and hardships she’s faced in the first 50 years of her life, which now includes the death of DMX[4]. Now, I also celebrate my ex-husband, my best friend, my spiritual partner, my mentor,” Tashera says in the video over photos of their 1999 wedding and more sweet moments.

“I also thank god for his life, and his peace, and his journey, and his life lessons that [were] passed on, and will live on for generations,” she added. In her caption, Tashera wrote that she was “crying” and experiencing a “rollercoaster of emotions” on her birthday. “I couldn’t bring myself to just celebrate and close the last 50yrs of my life with out celebrating the life of one of the most important person in the world to me, my ex-husband,” she wrote.

“I am so grateful to God and Honored from the bottom of my heart, for the opportunity while on this journey called life to join hands in marriage with a true disciple and Angel of God to do life with when we did,” she continued. “Everything we went through was necessary. It made me the women I am today.” Tashera and DMX (real name Earl Simmons) divorced in 2004 and are the parents of four kids[5] together: Xavier, 28, Tacoma, 21, Sean, 18, and Praise Mary Ella, 15.

He also adopted Bertorelli’s daughter Joely, an actress and film producer.

‘Between life and death’: Ex-wife of former Arsenal & Russia star Andrey Arshavin ‘fighting for life after Covid diagnosis’

‘Between life and death’: Ex-wife of former Arsenal & Russia star Andrey Arshavin ‘fighting for life after Covid diagnosis’

Andriy Arshavin’s ex-wife, model-turned-Instagram-influencer Alisa Arshavin, 38, is reported to be gravely ill in a St. Petersburg hospital after catching Covid-19 while in a coma in intensive care due to a separate illness.

Arshavin, who has also worked as a journalist and has a child with the former Russian playmaker, has been in intensive care for the past eight days and was described by her mother Natalia Sarycheva as being “between life and death“.

She had been diagnosed with acute pancreatitis and peritonitis, prompting doctors to place her into an induced coma during which she was reported to have contracted Covid-19.

Her mother has said that she has suffered from “40 percent lung damage“, adding that Arshavin “has Covid-19 and pneumonia with a complication“.

Arshavin’s health problems come amid a bitter dispute between her and the 75-times capped Russian international. Andrey Arshavin’s mother, Tatyana, has taken court action to attempt to evict her and her three children from the family home of her marriage to Andrey. 

She had taken legal moves to prevent action which she says would leave her and the four-year old daughter she has with the former Russian Footballer of the Year “homeless”, but missed a scheduled court date due to her poor health.

Arshavin is also understood to be battling a potentially life-threatening disease which she says has “mutilated” her nose as a result of a serious degenerative autoimmune problem.

Several of Arshavin’s Instagram posts this year showed her covering her nose and she was forced to deny accusations that she had undergone a ‘botched’ nose job.

I’m not sick because of unsuccessful plastic surgery,” she told her fans earlier this year.

I have a serious disease of the autoimmune system. Two surgeries have helped to save my life. As a result, my beautiful face was mutilated by the disease.”

The condition is a particularly ravaging one as it can lead to damage inside the jaw, nose, cheekbone and lips.

Andrey Arshavin scored 31 times in 144 appearances during his spell in the English Premier League with Arsenal before seeing out his playing career in his homeland with spells with Zenit St. Petersburg – his second stint with the current Russian Premier League champions – and Kuban Krasnodar.

He retired from professional football after three seasons with Kairat in the Kazakhstan Premier League, and currently serves as an adviser on youth football matters to Zenit.

Johnny Depp ex-wife Amber Heard ‘fired from Aquaman 2 after failing physical exam'

Johnny Depp ex-wife Amber Heard ‘fired from Aquaman 2 after failing physical exam'
Last year Heard appeared in court to testify against Depp who had filed a lawsuit against a British newspaper. The publication suggested the 57-year-old actor was a “wife-beater”, claims he disputed. The former couple revealed details about their relationship throughout the trial including allegations Heard chopped off a portion of Depp’s finger during an argument. Heard has now reportedly been dropped from Aquaman 2 following a “physical test”.
According to Yahoo! Heard’s firing does not have anything to do with her public court battle against Depp.

The report says Heard “gained a little weight before the commencement of the shoot and the makers are not keen on continuing to work with her”.

Australian website Sausage Roll said: “Amber Heard did not pass her physical examination.

“She’s put on some pounds and is in terrible shape. There is a clause in her contract which says she is required to be in good form ahead of shooting and she violated that.”

Heard played Mera in the 2018 blockbuster Aquaman, the love interest of the titular character, Arthur Curry (played by Momoa).

If Heard has been fired from her role as Mera, she would join Depp in losing jobs since their public high court battle.

Shortly after the trial ended Depp announced his Fantastic Beasts exit on his Instagram account, writing: “In light of recent events, I would like to make the following short statement. Firstly I’d like to thank everybody who has gifted me with their support and loyalty. I have been humbled and moved by your many messages of love and concern, particularly over the last few days.

“Secondly, I wish to let you know that I have been asked to resign by Warner Bros. from my role as Grindelwald in Fantastic Beasts and I have respected that and agreed to that request.

“Finally I wish to say this, The surreal judgement of the court in the UK will not change my fight to tell the truth and I confirm that I plan to appeal. My resolve remains strong and I intend to prove that the allegations against me are false.

Depp continued: “My life and career will not be defined by this moment in time. Thank you for reading. Sincerely, Johnny Depp.”

Depp has also been reportedly dropped from Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean, following claims Margot Robbie was replacing him.

Robbie later confirmed she has joined the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean reboot.

Depp’s fate in the series has not been confirmed.
