Recently, it was revealed that T-ARA’s Bo-ram have been hospitalised in Japan for acute gastritis.
According to a report on T-araworld, on 6 June, Core Contents Media revealed that the singer was not able to attend the group activities on 5 June due to acute gastritis. T-ARA has just successfully completed their Thai concert and they will be flying to Japan next to carry out the rest of their scheduled activities there.
The label’s representative stated, “We took her to the hospital immediately and take an examination. She is now hospitalised and receiving treatment.”
The rep added, “She must’ve been nervous because there were more overseas activities lined up after their Thai concert. She must’ve had problems with something she ate while in Thailand, and combined with the stress she was under, it laid undue stress on her system.”
They also stated that T-ARA’s Japanese agency has taken Bo-ram out of all their line-ups for 6 June. However, a few hours later, the agency stated, “Bo-ram will not be attending the scheduled activities with the other members until 11 June or until her situation gets better. There are still no solid results on her hospital test but we will keep a close eye on her health.”

According to OMG! On a flight from Los Angeles to New York, the married actor sat next to a model named Melissa Stetten. The two struck up a conversation, but it wasn’t exactly private. Stetten, apparently amused by what she believed to be Presley’s attempts to hit on her, blogged about the encounter on Twitter.
Sample tweets include: “Brian is now talking about how he is an artist and believes everything happens for a re-son, like how we’re brought together on this flight.” Another sample: “Brian asked what I do for a living. I said model. He said ‘Oh I love meeting other arists like myself.'”
Maybe he was flirting, maybe not. Presley responded to Stetten’s tweets by saying he was just trying to be nice. On Facebook he wrote, “I love that I took a red eye flight to NY, had a 10 minute friendly conversation with the person sitting next to me, had some food, and went to sleep! I learned today this person has been tweeting about me drinking beer in the airplane bathroom, and trying to commit adultery with her on the airplane. Really absurd and quite funny.”
Worth noting — Stetten alleges Presley was under the influence of alcohol on the plane. However, Presley contends he is sober. On Facebook, he wrote, “None of what this person said happened is true… I guess in today’s age you have to be careful who you say hello too. Sobriety, God, & My Family are the most important things in my life!”
The “he said, she tweeted” incident has been picked up by several blogs, including Gawker and People magazine. True or not, the controversy has had a positive effect on Stetten’s Twitter following. She’s now up to more than 25,000 followers.
According to CNN, Rev. Creflo Dollar gives his Wednesday night service at World Changers Church International, in College Park, Ga., in 2007. Creflo was arrested for allegedly choking his daughter.
The 15-year-old daughter of megachurch pastor Creflo Dollar told authorities her father choked and punched her, and hit her with his shoe during an argument over whether she could go to a party, according to a police report.
Dollar’s 19-year-old daughter corroborated most of her sister’s story, but Dollar disputed it, telling a sheriff’s deputy he was trying to restrain her when she became disrespectful. When she began to hit back, he wrestled her to the floor and spanked her, according to the police report.
Megachurch pastor Creflo Dollar is seen in his booking photo after his arrest for allegedly choking his daughter.
Dollar is one of the most prominent African-American preachers based around Atlanta. His World Changers Church International has 30,000 members in the Atlanta area, and the ministry has satellite churches across the U.S.
Dollar faces misdemeanor charges of simple battery and cruelty to children. He has been released from jail and his lawyer said he was expected to preach Sunday.
Dollar said in a statement Friday he loved his children and would never hurt them.
Around 1 a.m. Friday, his 15-year-old daughter called 911. She told a Fayette County sheriff’s deputy that she and her father argued when he said she couldn’t go to a party Saturday night, according to the report.
She went into the kitchen with her older sister. When her father asked why she was crying, she told him, “I do not want to talk right now,” the report said.
Her father charged at her, put his hands around her throat, began to punch her and started hitting her with his shoe, she told the deputy. The deputy noted a scratch on her neck.
Dollar told the deputy he wouldn’t let his daughter go to the party because of poor grades.
The deputy also interviewed Dollar’s 19-year-old daughter, who said her father grabbed the younger girl’s shoulders and slapped her in the face and choked her for about five seconds. She said her sister tried to break free, but did not fight back. When her father threw the 15-year-old on the floor, the older girl ran to get her mother.
The deputy also spoke to Dollar’s wife, Taffi, who said she did not see the fight.
After interviewing Dollar and the two girls, the deputy asked for written statements. The older daughter initially wrote a statement that contradicted what she had told the deputy and was more in line with what Dollar said.
When the deputy confronted her about the discrepancies, she told him it was because her parents were with her. Later, when separated from her parents, she wrote what she initially told him.
The 50-year-old Dollar leads the Creflo Dollar Ministries and is the pastor for World Changers Church International in the Atlanta suburb of College Park.
He and his wife, a co-pastor at the church, have five children, according to the church’s website.
