Those kids from Netflix’s smash series “Stranger Things” just got paid. The pay raise couldn’t have come at a better time for the kid stars, who are now teenagers. The show doesn’t have too many seasons left to film the kids while they still look like kids. Teenagers grow fast and start to look more like adults, and less like lovable kids pretty quickly. When that wears off, so will the nostalgia of the show…..in most cases. Different Strokes, Facts Of Life, The Cosby Show, Blossom… the list goes on and on. Anyway, the Stranger Things kids just got a huge pay raise.
Deadline Hollywood (@ deadline) reports, the child and adult stars of the series will now all make 6-figures per episode. The three boy child actors (Finn Wolfhard, Gaten Matarazzo, and Caleb Mclaughlin) are all set to earn more than $150,000 per episode. Millie Bobby Brown (Seven), is set to make even more than the boys. I mean, she does deserve it right? Seven is a big part of the reason everyone took to the series in the way that they did. The two main adults on the show (Winona Rider and David Harbour) are set to make over $200,000 per episode for season 3. The pay raise is a huge pay leap for the child stars. They each made around $30,000 per episode in the first two seasons.

R&B singer Trey Songz turned himself in to the Los Angeles Police Department Monday morning to face charges of alleged felony domestic violence charges. Songz turned himself in, with his attorney Shawn Holley in tow early on Monday morning.
TMZ (@tmz) reports, the charge stems from an incident involving a woman Songz was out with in LA last month during NBA All-Star weekend. Songz was booked at 6am and released shortly after 8am after he posted a $50,000 bond.
Songz is accused of beating Andrea Buera at a party in the Hollywood Hills where she claims he was upset because she was talking to another man. Buera says Songz beat her so badly, she suffered a concussion and had to go to a hospital for treatment. She claims several people at the party witnessed the alleged “beating.” Songz said that he was being lied on and the woman was out for “personal gain.”

Seaside City, California
In news that should come as no surprise to anyone, a teacher with a gun inside of a school, injured a student. The teacher was actually teaching a public safety class when the incident took place.
CNN (@cnn) reports, Seaside City’s Mayor pro tem and reserve officer with the Sandy City Police Department, Dennis Alexander, was teaching a lesson at a Seaside High School in Seaside when he pointed his gun toward the ceiling and accidentally fired it, said Abdul Pridgen, the city’s police chief. A 17-year old student was injured by a bullet fragment or by debris that fell from the ceiling, Pridgen said.
Alexander has been placed on administrative leave from his teaching job according to a spokesperson with the Monterey Peninsula Unified School District.
“I think a lot of questions on parents’ minds are, why a teacher would be pointing a loaded firearm at the ceiling in front of students. Clearly, in this incident, protocols were not followed.” Superintendent PK Diffenbaugh told KSBW News. It’s still unclear why the teacher was displaying the firearm in the first place. This one incident goes into the category of a bigger National debate. Should teachers be armed with guns in school?
