HurtBae Returns With Ex-Boyfriend To Air Out The Rest Of Their Dirty Laundry

Things instantly heat up (in a bad way) when the exes reunite on camera one year after their viral meltdown. 

One year ago, online site Hey Iris dropped a video that instantly went viral. The video followed a cringe-worthy conversation between a couple as they attempted to sort through their issues and see where the relationship had fallen apart. By the end of the video, many fans had painted the guy as a villain and dubbed the girl "HurtBae." But now, one year after they became Internet sensations, the two have returned to Hey Iris' studio to revisit their "broken" relationship and air out more of their personal business.

The 7-minute video is just as awkward and forced as the previous, but still so intriguing that you have to watch. HurtBae, whose real name is Kourtney, sits across from her ex, Leonard in the same format as before as they revisit their past mistakes.  According to the two, life after the video has been great. Kourtney made advances in her career and Leonard has been "drinking more water, exfoliating." "I like to learn my lessons the hard way," he said.

While the video helped them professionally, both agreed that it painted them in a negative light. "I think they took away that I was a damsel in distress and he was a villain, and it wasn't that cut and dry. We both are human, and we both make mistakes," Kourtney stated. Leonard also chimed in: "People feel like they know the whole story of our relationship from watching a 5-minute video, which is just absurd and kind of makes me seem like  bad person, which I'm not."

The conversation then took a turn for the worst once the two delved into the heart of their relationship. According to Leonard, Kourtney was hanging on for no reason. "You still wanted to be with me after I didn't want to be with you," he said. "Did I? What are you talking about," she questioned.

And it didn't stop there. After Leonard declared that the couple were never exclusive, he also suggested that his decision to do the video with her was simply for publicity. "We did this to get exposure as entertainers," he confessed. "It was obviously a set up for me because I was the one who was going to be painted as a cheater... We were never together." Kourtney then stormed off the set.

At the video's conclusion, the two were able to come together and mutually wipe their hands clean of each other. But it's safe to say, these two probably need to cease all forms of communication going forward, even if it is for exposure. Check out the full video on Hey Iris below.

Illinois Man Awarded $1.25 Million After Cops Tackled Him For Stealing His Own Car

A former Northwestern University doctoral student was awarded $1.25 million after police tackled the then 25-year old assuming he was trying to steal a car that was actually his own.

The Associated Press reports Evanston City Manager Wally Bobkiewicz confirmed the settlement amount had been reached Wednesday. (Jan. 23) Crosby was an engineering major in 2015 when the incident occurred.

Crosby’s attorney Timothy Touhy said his client was attempting to repair something with his car when a white woman watching called local police to report what she thought was a robbery.

The unidentified woman then followed Crosby in his car as he left his apartment and headed to a science building on Northwestern's campus, giving police his location.

Crosby reportedly exited his vehicle with his hands up but was immediately tackled by law enforcement when he didn't obey orders to get on the ground. Cops later determined Crosby was the owner of the vehicle but charged him with resisting arrest.

A spokesman for the Evanston police said the use of force was justified at the time because officers assumed a theft was in progress. Crosby was the victim of knee strikes and open-handed strikes.

A judge threw out the charges.

“It’s his hope that as a result of this case, that all of us begin a discussion on implicit bias and begin to recognize it and begin to discuss it between yourselves and your friends,” said Steven Yonover, who represented Crosby in the case.

10 Year Old Commits Suicide After Being Bullied For Colostomy Bag

A 10-year-old Kentucky boy committed suicide after being bullied incessantly by classmates, who reportedly picked on for using a colostomy bag.

Seven Bridges' mother found him dead in the closet on Saturday (Jan. 19). Tami Charles was reportedly out grocery shopping, and the boy's father Donnie was at a church choir practice. Charles called Seven, her only child, a miracle baby, as she was told that she wouldn't be able to have children.

"Seven had a tough start. He was born with a condition that required a colostomy bag. Even after several surgeries, he would still have problems with leaks. Charles said it became a reason for kids to make fun of him," reports WHAS11 in Kentucky. According to Charles, her son underwent 26 surgeries from the time he was born.

"WHAS11 talked to Charles and Seven in September after an alleged bullying incident on his bus ride home from Kerrick Elementary School," the site continues. This is unfortunately not the first time bullying has severely affected Seven and his family. "He said he was called the N-word by a student. His friend told him to beat-up that student, and when Seven refused, he said the bus buddy started choking him." This incident was detailed on Tami's Facebook page.

Seven, who was planning on going to another school to start sixth grade, was told by his mother than the bullying would end when he changed schools.

“The balls that were dropped,” Tami said of the flawed system that couldn't protect bullying victims at the school. “It wasn't that [Jefferson County Public Schools] didn't have these tools, they just weren't at our school. It wasn't that they didn't have these tools to help the victims of bullying, they just weren't there, they weren't used."

Due to the manner of the boy's death, insurance will not cover the costs of his funeral. If you'd like to help the family, please click here.
