Boyfriend Of Woman Left In Burning Car By Friend Believes Suspect Lied About Dating Her To Gain Sympathy

Karan Dhillon says he was never fond of Saeed Ahmad, the man who left his girlfriend Harleen Grewal to die in a burning car Friday (Oct. 13). 

More details have come to light about the woman who was left to die in a fiery crash by her presumed boyfriend.

On Monday (Oct.16) ABC7  spoke to Karan Dhillon, the actual boyfriend of Harleen Grewal, the 25-year-old Queens native who lost her life in a car accident in New York early Friday morning (Oct. 13). Police reported the crash happened on the Gowanus Expressway, an intersection connecting New York and New Jersey.

Grewal was in the passenger seat as suspect Saeed Ahmad crashed into the middle of the highway. Video witness footage showed the 23-year-old leaving the scene by hopping into an available cab. After he was picked up by police at a local hospital, Ahmad told them Grewal was his date, which Dhillon says isn't true.

"People probably think she was cheating on me or this and that, no there's nothing like that going on," Dhillon said while acknowledging Grewal as the "love of his life." He said his girlfriend had a sunny and friendly disposition about herself. He admitted to meeting Ahmad a few times and knew he was apart of her social circle.

"She would be positive to everyone, sometimes for no reason at all," Dhillon said. "Like this guy, I don't know if she trusted him, you know? You know she trusted someone to drop her home, or whatever the case was."

Dhillon beleives Ahmad lied to police, unaware that they saw the footage and hoped they would be sympathetic towards him."If I was in his position and someone told me to say that, or maybe it popped up in my head to get more sympathy, maybe I would do that too," he said. Dhillon says he's not upset with Ahmad, since he doesn't want to assume the worst.

"When I first saw it, I said, man, this guy has no heart, guy has no soul," he added. "Guy had no heart. But then I put myself in his situation, and I would scared out of my life. Twenty-three or 24-year-old young man, who just saw his best friend or friend just die over there. Maybe he tried to help her, maybe he didn't. You know, no one knows the real story."

Ahmad's brother told the New York Post, he did try to save the young woman, but was unable to. "He tried to get her out. That's how his hands and his legs and his neck got burned," Waheed Ahmad said. "He couldn't get her out. The fire got too crazy. It just burned so quick."

Ahmad has been charged with manslaughter, criminally negligent homicide, leaving the scene of an accident, aggravated unlicensed operator and speeding. It's unknown if he will be charged for lying to police. Police are unaware if Ahmed was under the influence at the time of the crash.

Cardi B Comments On Government Shutdown: "Our Country Is In A Hellhole"

Cardi B wanted to give her two cents on the now-25 day partial government shutdown. The Grammy-nominated rapper got political on her Instagram page, stating that she believes our country is in a "Hellhole" and she feels terribly for those affected.

"It’s been a little bit over three weeks. Trump is now ordering, as in summoning, federal government workers to go back to work without getting paid," she said. Cardi continued by telling people not to drag former President Barack Obama's partial government shutdown into the conversation, as his shutdown was for a better reason than Trump's dream border wall.

"Now, I don't want to hear any of y'all motherf**kas talkin' 'bout, 'Oh, but Obama shut down the government for 17 days,' Yeah, b***h! For healthcare!" she continued. "So your grandma could check her blood pressure and you b****es could go check y'all p***y at the gynecologist with no motherf**kin' problem. This sh*t is really f**kin' serious, bro. This sh*t is crazy. Like, our country is in a hellhole right now. All for a f**kin' wall."

The Invasion of Privacy MC continues by stating that she is "scared" and feels badly for those who aren't able to be compensated for their work.

"Now, I now a lot of y’all don’t care…  b***h I’m scared," she concludes. "This is crazy, and I really feel bad for these people that gotta go to f**kin' work without getting f**kin' paid."

James Mason, R. Kelly’s former manager who is being accused of sending terrorizing, threatening text messages to the father of one of Kelly’s accusers, is reportedly surrendering to Georgia authorities.

According to The Blast, Mason will surrender in Henry County, Ga. on Wednesday (Jan. 16) after a judge issued a warrant for his arrest, citing “terroristic threats and acts.” A police report obtained by the site states that Mason told Timothy Savage, the father of Kelly’s alleged cult member Jocelyn Savage, that he was going to “f**king kill” him when he saw him, and that he was going to harm him and his family.

A second manager for Kelly, Don Russell, is also reportedly under investigation for allegedly harassing and threatening the Savage family for participating in the six-part docu-series, Surviving R. Kelly. 

Mr. Savage was reportedly texted by Mr. Russell, who said it would “be best for him and his family if the documentary [Surviving R. Kelly] does not air." During a phone call that was put on speaker, Russell reportedly threatened to reveal information about Mr. Savage if he did not pull out of the doc.

Kelly is under investigation in both Georgia and Illinois, which is reportedly a direct response to the allegations made in the Lifetime docu-series.

Porn Site Condemns Users After Searches For R. Kelly's Sex Tape Increase

Searches for the infamous sex tape recorded by R. Kelly and featuring a minor has seen an uptick, and a porn site is condemning its users from trying to find it, because child pornography is illegal.

According to The Blast, porn site xHamster reportedly said that searches for the term ‘R. Kelly’ are up 388 percent since the beginning of January. Of course, this coincides with the release of the six-part Lifetime docu-series, Surviving R. Kelly, which chronicles over 20 years of indecent and immoral behavior towards teenage girls and women.

The site noted that they do not have the infamous tape that involves the controversial musician having sex with and urinating on an underage girl, nor will they ever carry it and other videos like it on their site.

“The R. Kelly tape is not on xHamster, nor would we ever allow it to be,” representatives for the site told The Blast. “Regardless of the news or sensation, a tape featuring underaged is both illegal and immoral.” xHamster also says they will be “disabling searches and putting up messages alerting any searches that the content is not acceptable.”

One of the messages on the site says “Please consider that in searching for and viewing such content, you may be re-victimizing a minor who could not consent.”
