‘Empire’ Star Bryshere Gray Arrested on Traffic-Related Charge in Chicago
Empire” star Bryshere Gray was arrested on a traffic-related charge in Chicago, a representative for the Chicago Police Department told TheWrap Monday.

Gray — who plays Hakeem, the younger brother of Jussie Smollett’s character, Jamal, on the Fox hip-hop drama — was pulled over by police last Thursday for a “registration issue” in which his license plate didn’t match the Rolls-Royce he was driving, the spokesperson told TheWrap.

According to the representative, the actor was not in possession of a driver’s license — though he told officers he does have one, but it was not on him at the time — and did not have insurance on the vehicle.

Gray was arrested on one misdemeanor registration charge and received two traffic citations, one for an uninsured motor vehicle and the other for failing to have a driver’s license.

Gloria Vanderbilt Dies at 95
Gloria Vanderbilt, a famous model and socialite who was often a subject of fascination in the worlds of fashion and media, has died at 95, according to a report on CNN, where her son, anchor Anderson Cooper, has worked for several years.

From a young age, Vanderbilt led a tumultuous life, one marked by a heated custody battle over her and her inheritance when she was young, and filled with marriages and business ventures as she grew older. “She lived her entire life in the public eye,” Cooper said in a video obituary that aired on CNN Monday.

Vanderbilt was the only daughter of railroad magnate Reginald Vanderbilt and his second wife. As such, she and a half-sister, Cathleen Vanderbilt, each stood to inherit a share in a trust after the executive died when Gloria was just eighteen months old. Her paternal aunt would eventually win custody over the girl and her share in the trust. The trial around who would take control of young Vanderbilt’s life and finances was a tabloid sensation at the time.
