Published

Dwayne Johnson spoke out via social media about “choice” on Sunday after his mother and cousin were hit by a drunk driver.

My mom & cousin @linafanene were struck head on by a drunk driver this week – they lived. First reaction is to find the person who did this and do unrelenting harm to them. But then you realize the most important thing is my family lived thru this and we can hug each other that much tighter these days. Hug your own family tighter today and be grateful you can tell them you love them. #BearHugsAndGratitude #100PercentPreventable #ChoicesMaters,” he wrote, including an image of the car wreck.

Johnson’s uncle tells TMZ that the women were driving home from a fundraiser their family runs every year when they were struck. (They were driving the Escalade the Rock bought his mother for Christmas 2012.) Both were rushed to a nearby hospital where they were treated for injuries.  The Rock’s mother, Ata was reportedly hospitalized for three nights.

The Rock’s cousin, Lina posted a snapshot on Instagram of the actor visiting her in the hospital.

“We are just a bunch of goof balls,” she wrote.”

The Nerve! Rae Carruth’s Shocking Request Over Son He Tried To Kill Has Twitter Up In Arms

Published

on

Rae Carruth has Twitter up in arms over his asinine request to gain custody of his 18-year-old son he tried to kill. Let’s first refresh your memory.

The former Carolina Panthers wide receiver was sentenced to 18 to 24 years behind bars in North Carolina for conspiracy to murder his pregnant girlfriend, Cherica Adams.

In 2001, Carruth was found guilty of hiring Van Brett Watkins and Michael Kennedy to murder Adams two years prior. Watkins shot Adams multiple times and Kennedy was responsible for the getaway car.

Cherica, who was seven months pregnant, died one month after the shooting and her son survived. Unfortunately, due to complications, Chancellor Lee Adams was born prematurely and has sense battled cerebral palsy.

Now, almost 20 years following the egregious murder, Carruth is not only begging for forgiveness from the mother of Cherica, but he is also requesting full custody of Chancellor.

The former athlete wrote a 15-page letter to Saundra Adams apologizing for the murder of her daughter and accepted responsibility for planning out the attacks.

“I should be raising my son. His mother should be raising her son,” Carruth said during an interview with WBTV. “Ms. Adams should not be doing this and I want that responsibility back.”

He explained, “I feel like he might not ever have his mother in his life but he could still have me and I could still make a difference and I don’t think that’s anyone’s responsibility when I’m still here.”

In response to the lengthy letter, Adams told The Observer earlier this week that while she has forgiven Rae, she will not give up custody of her grandson, whom she has raised. “I’ve forgiven Rae already, but to have any type of relationship with him, there does have to be some repentance,” Adams said. “And I think this opens the door. But I can say definitively he’s not ever going to have custody of Chancellor.”

She added, “Chancellor will be raised either by me or, after I’m gone, by someone else who loves him and who knows him. He will never be raised by a stranger — someone he doesn’t know and who tried to kill him.”

Standing behind Saundra decision to sustain custody is folks on social media, who are disgusted by Rae’s request.

Rae is set to be released from Sampson Correctional Institution in Clinton, North Carolina, on October 22.
