Here’s her horrific ordeal from of our friends at ChicksOnTheRight:
“I was asleep and awoke to what seemed like a nightmare,” Lauren told Inside Edition in an interview set to air Monday. Her boyfriend was “kneeling” above her, she recounted, “stuffing some sort of cloths in my mouth, duct-taping my entire head.”

SANTA ANA, CA. (THECOUNT) — Grant William Robicheaux, a well-known surgeon in Orange County, and his girlfriend, Cerissa Laura Riley, are accused of anesthetizing and assaulting at least two women. Police say there may be many more victims identified as more evidence is examined.
The Orange County District Attorney’s Office announced Tuesday that there may be “hundreds of alleged victims,” of a Newport Beach surgeon and a woman believed to be his girlfriend.
Officials held a news conference in Santa Ana, announcing charges against 38-year-old Robicheaux and 31-year-old Riley, accused them of teaming up to prey on women by meeting them at bars, drugging them – or coercing with copious amounts of alcohol – and then bringing them back to the man’s apartment to assault or rape them.
Other charges include oral copulation by anesthesia or controlled substance, assault with intent to commit an offense and possession of a controlled substance for sale.
Rackauckas said there is video of the despicable acts on one of the two victims who have come forward. Prosecutors believe that based on the videos and pictures found on the pair’s phones, there may be upwards of 1,000 other victims.
Rackauckas added that Robicheaux and Riley are two “clean-cut, good-looking people” who used their looks and charm to “prey” on their victims.
The two alleged victims came forward with encounters they had with the pair in 2016. In April of 2016, Jane Doe 1 was met by the two at a restaurant in Newport Beach and invited to a party. Once intoxicated, the 32-year-old woman was allegedly taken to Robicheaux’s apartment, where she was allegedly drugged and raped. She contacted Newport Beach police the next day and tested positive for multiple drugs, Rackauckas said. Continue reading
LOS ANGELES. CA. (THECOUNT) — Kanye West is moving to Chicago, but will also maintain residency in California, TMZ is reporting.
West made the announcement Monday at a Windy City event with Chance the Rapper, saying, “I gotta let y’all know that I’m moving back to Chicago and I’m never leaving again.”
Sources close to Kanye say he and Kim have already found a home in Chi-Town and that’s where we know he wants to establish his permanent residence, but they are keeping all of their properties in L.A. Tmz says, West will move his Yeezy offices from Calabasas to Chicago.
In addition to the house they just built, they have multiple properties in L.A., including 300 acres that Kanye is developing, and that project is still a go.
The move has nothing to do with West fleeing Los Angeles, where he lives with Kim Kardashian West and their 3 kids, reports say.
It’s a little confusing, but we’re told Kanye views it this way … that he will have a home base in Chicago, but apparently he believes he can have more than one home base.
You’ll recall … Kanye launched Donda’s House — named after his mom — in Chicago in 2013. It’s a place for artists to develop their skills and collab with others, reports TMZ
