Well now, this definitely makes me feel like the world is a safer place!
Just months after having been arrested at the 2011 Juno Awards held in Toronto, Giovanni Palumbo, the lonely stalker who sent Shania Twain love letters and flowers, has been released from prison.
Palumbo was released on Tuesday and given three years of probation. According to the Toronto Star, during the testimony Polumbo looked “ pale, gaunt, disheveled and was unshaven.”
“He hung his head and even took to lying on the bench in the prisoner’s box, curling up in a fetal position,” described journalist Curtis Rush. “Even when freed at the end of the day, there was no joy on his face.”
Since the beginning of this debacle a few years ago, Polumbo has been ordered to not come within half a kilometer of the country singer, and had his license to practice medicine revoked. He also lost contact with his family over the years.
It’s a wonder what will happen to Polumbo next. Whatever it is, we definitely hope it’s away from Shania. Who knows what compelled him to do all of this. We know Shania is very talented, but his creepy actions might have pushed it just a bit too far. We wish the best for both of them.

The rapper’s lawyer, Steve Sadow, told MTV News that T.I. will be finished his sentence by September 29 assuming everything goes to plan.
“[T.I.] went through a disciplinary hearing held before the ‘Center Disciplinary Committee’ (composed of Community Corrections-halfway house-staff) who recommended that he be returned to the halfway house,” Sadow confirmed in an emailed statement.
“We have good reason to believe that this favorable result was reached because of the pro-active and assertive approach taken to protect T.I.’s rights by providing [Federal Bureau of Prisons] officials and the media with reliable and accurate information that T.I. did not intend to violate his transfer furlough or any other [Federal Bureau Prisons] rules en route from the prison facility in Arkansas to the halfway house in Atlanta,” Sadow told TMZ. “T.I. will be released from the custody of the [Federal Bureau Prisons] on September 29th, and then will be supervised by the U.S. Probation Office for a period of one year.”
Good for T.I. and this whole story is pretty ridiculous.
T.I. is a free man. The rapper was released from prison and is being transported to a community living facility or home confinement reports TMZ.
T.I. spent 11 months in jail after a drug possession arrest. Consequently his probation was revoked from a gun conviction in 2009.
Rapper T.I., otherwise known as Clifford Harris Jr., is projected to be released from federal prison on Sept. 29 after serving an 11-month sentence, reports Billboard.
The Federal Bureau of Prisons website states that T.I. will leave the Arkansas Federal Correctional Institution a little over one year after he was arrested in Los Angeles on suspicion of drug possession last September. The rapper was previously on probation after serving a 10-month stint in the Arkansas prison on federal weapons charges.
Being behind the bars didn’t stop him, though. T.I.’s seventh studio album ‘No Mercy’ was released while the rapper was incarcerated last December, and has since moved 502,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
On the day of the album release, T.I. issued a thank you letter to his fans: ”It doesn’t matter how long it’ll be before the next time you see me. What matters is that I’ll be a better man before that time comes,” he wrote. “The longer I sit, the smarter I get.”
And there you have it. Hopefully he doesn’t make the same mistakes once he’s released. But I’m not very hopeful.
Popeater is reporting that Lindsay’s parents, Dina and Michael Lohan, are incredibly proud of their daughter and firmly believe that she has taken huge steps toward getting fully healthy once more.
“She’s just a different person,” Dina explained in an interview with Matt Lauer. “Shes been in a couple facilities, but this one, to me, has really changed her.”
In a separate interview with the Early Show, Michael echoed Dina’s sentiments. “She has taken the right steps and put the right people back into her life,” he gushed.
Lindsay’s parents have had a history of public feuding, especially over what is best for Lindsay, so it’s nice to see them agree about something for once!
Lohan is expected to stay in LA to work on her clothing line rather than return to her Long Island home. She has no upcoming film projects after dropping out of what was supposed to be her comeback vehicle, a Linda Lovelace biopic titled “Inferno”, due to her time in jail and rehab.
Keep up the good work, Lindsay! You can get better! We believe in you!
But what do you think? Do you think she is doomed or will she make it this time?
