As a result, in 2023, Carter filed a counter-application against all three women for defamation and told BBC News through his legal team that the women were “spreading falsehoods” with this new documentary.

“These are exactly the same outrageous claims that led us to sue this gang of conspirators,” the statement said.

“Those cases are now working their way through the legal system, and based on both the initial court rulings and the overwhelming evidence, we believe we will prevail and hold them accountable for spreading these falsehoods.”

Carter’s younger brother, singer and chat rhymer Aaron Carter’s support for the alleged victims is also discussed in the documentary.

RNews previously reported that Aaron was found dead in a bathtub in his home in California in the USA last year. As an adult, he struggled with various problems, including addiction, money problems and family disputes, which often ended up in the media.

This series is not currently available on a streaming service in South Africa.

New looper for Moana 2

Parents of toddlers need to prick up their ears – and prepare their wallets – because a second installment of the beloved Disney animated film Moana will hit the silver screen on November 27.

Moana tells the story of an island princess who must venture into unknown waters to save her family and island and has become one of Disney lovers’ favorite movies since the movie’s launch in 2016.

The second movie’s teaser was sent out into the world this week and shows that new waters and adventures lie ahead for the princess.

The first Moana-film earned more than $680 million (about R12.9 billion) at the box office at the time and has been watched more than a billion hours on the streaming service Disney+ to date.

RNews reported earlier that a “real” version with actors of this movie is also currently in the pipeline.

Scottish homeless make way for Swifties

Homeless people have been sent out of the Scottish capital Edinburgh to make way for Taylor Swift fans, aka Swifties, ahead of the pop star’s upcoming Eras Tour performances.

The welfare organization Shelter Scotland told several British media houses that scores of homeless people dependent on their help were sent out of the city by taxi to towns and cities such as Aberdeen, Glasgow and Newcastle.

They will reportedly be placed in temporary housing to prevent a shortage of accommodation in Edinburgh during Swift’s concerts, which take place on June 7, 8 and 9 at Murrayfield Stadium.

However, the charity told the BBC it was “a blatant injustice” for the homeless to be “in direct competition” with tourists.

RNews recently reported that Swift by Forbes-magazine as one of the world’s richest people and that she also made history as the first musician to reach this milestone solely on the basis of her music, rather than advertising agreements.

Additionally, her Eras Tour has been named one of the most profitable tours of all time and has since grossed over $1 billion.
