Have You Ever Seen Dolly Parton’s Hubby Of 53 Years?

WILLIAMSON COUNTY, TN. (THECOUNT) — Dolly Parton has been married to the same man since 1966, but have you ever actually seen her better half?

Carl Dean, 77, who married the country superstar after bumping into her outside a Nashville laundromat – 55 years ago – Is now known for being a “recluse,” who has barely stepped outside the couple’s Brentwood, Tennessee home over the last 4 decades.

The last known time the elusive Dean had been photographed was way back in 1977. The same year Elvis died.

Dolly, who has a net worth of $600 million dollars, has often talked in high regard of her relationship with Dean, although according to reports, the couple lives in different building on the Brentwood compound.

In February, Dean was captured in public for the first time 4 decades while exiting the family estate.

A source, close to the married couple, told the Daily Mail about Carl Dean’s reclusive habits.

“He barely leaves the house and doesn’t really interact with people unless he absolutely has to. The total opposite of Dolly. Carl is still extremely reclusive, and in any given week, he will only leave the house a handful of times.”

Although the couple has been married for five decades, it has been reported that they live separately from each other on the massive Brentwood property. A source claimed that “Carl lives in a different building on the couple’s property in Brentwood, Tennessee.”

The couple first met back in 1964 outside of a Nashville laundromat. Two years later, the pair tied the knot at a family affair in Ringgold, Georgia. Only Dolly’s mom attended as well as the pastor’s wife to act as a witness, reports AWM.

Dolly has admitted that Dean has only seen her perform live once. That was when she appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres show in 2011.

Nevertheless, Dolly vows that Carl Dean has “always been my biggest fan behind the scenes” because “he’s always supporting me as long as I don’t try to drag him in on it.” But she added, “but he’s at home.”

‘Good Samaritan’ Who Happened On Lady Gaga Dogs ‘Tied To Pole’ $500K Richer

HOLLYWOOD, CA. (THECOUNT) — Singer Lady Gaga was offering a $500,000 reward for the safe return of her beloved bulldogs, who were stolen in an armed robbery where the employee walking the pups was shot Wednesday night. We are now learning, an unidentified woman found the dogs tied to a pole and contacted Gaga’s people.

The woman recognized the K9s from the widespread media attention on the theft. According to reports, the woman saw the email address posted on social media by the Gaga camp and informed them that she had located the dogs. She was then advised to take them to a nearby police station, which she did.

The dogs showed no signs of injuries.

Gaga, 34, who is currently in Italy, offered $500,000 for the return of her dogs, “no questions asked.” TMZ reports that Gaga plans to make good on the hefty reward.

Gaga’s dogs were targeted by thieves Wednesday night who shot her dog walker and stole a pair her French Bulldogs.

The dog walker had three of Gaga’s Bulldogs out in Hollywood just before 10 PM when one gunman — and possibly more — came upon him. We don’t know what was said, but the dog walker was shot and the gunman made off with 2 of the dogs, , according to TMZ.

There are reports there were only 2 Bulldogs being walked with one taken and one escaped that was later found, but our law enforcement sources tell us 3 dogs were being walked and 2 were taken by the gunman. We’re told the 3rd dog had run away but was later recovered.

Gaga’s, whose real name is, Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, has been in Rome working on a new movie. Her bodyguard was seen picking up the recovered bulldog. Sources close to Gaga tell us she’s extremely upset and is offering a half-a-million dollars to anyone who has her 2 dogs.

Law enforcement does not know if the target was Lady Gaga’s dogs specifically. French Bulldogs are in demand and expensive, so our sources say it’s possible the gunman did not know the dogs were owned by Lady Gaga.

The dog walker was taken to the hospital. He is expected to make a full recovery.

The gunman is still on the loose.

BMW Driver Attempts ‘Pit Maneuver’ On Tesla – Tesla Autopilot Responds ‘I Don’t Think So Sucka’ [Video]

Law enforcement be advised.. If you ever engage in a pursuit of a Tesla, forget trying a standard pit maneuver to end the drama.

During a recent road rage incident involving a BMW SUV and a Tesla 3, the Tesla proved that the BMW driver’s attempt to conduct its own version of the pursuit-ending procedure, was nothing short of useless.

Tesla’s Autopilot may be one of the most robust driver-assist systems on the market today, but the software is, at its core, a safety feature. This is something that CEO Elon Musk has highlighted in the past, and this is also something that was recently proven by a Model 3 driver who encountered a rather aggressive BMW SUV on the highway, reports Teslarati.

Tesla owner @jrange33 had Autopilot engaged in his Model 3 when he encountered what appears to be a 2012 BMW X5 that was driving extremely fast. While the Model 3 was already traveling at high speed and overtaking other vehicles in the middle lane, the BMW SUV traveled much faster–and then, something extremely dangerous happened.

The BMW SUV driver performed what appeared to be a pit maneuver attempt, which would have ran the Model 3 right into the concrete median barrier. Fortunately, Autopilot reacted just in time, avoiding the BMW and the median barrier at the same time. Thanks to Autopilot, the Model 3 was back in its lane practically at the same time as the BMW.

While some Tesla critics may attempt to justify the SUV driver’s aggressive behavior by arguing that the electric sedan was driving too slow in the fast lane, it should be noted that the Model 3 was already traveling fast enough to overtake other vehicles. It should also be noted that aggressive behaviors against other cars, particularly those that seem intent to cause a crash, are never justifiable.

During Elon Musk’s interview with automotive teardown expert Sandy Munro, he noted that Autopilot must be so safe in the future that even those who deliberately attempt to crash a Tesla would be unsuccessful. So far, Autopilot is already protecting drivers on the road, even if its features are still actively in development. With more improvements coming in the way of the Full Self-Driving beta and the deployment of the Dojo computer, Tesla’s Autopilot may very well become one of the best safety features on the road, bar none.

Former NFL Player Goes Missing In Jacksonville ‘Not Like Him’ Says Worried Mother

DUVAL COUNTY, FL. (THECOUNT) — Louis Nix, a third-round pick of the Texans in 2014 who also spent time with the Giants, Washington, and Jaguars, has gone missing in Florida.

Nix’s mother explained in a recent video that she has heard nothing from her son in several days adding she believes Nix is in danger.

“Last communication of anyone seeing him was Tuesday,” Nix’s mother said. “Can’t call him because voicemail is full and people he talks to daily have not heard from him. Not like him.”

Nix, a three-year starter at Notre Dame, was shot in December while putting air in the tires of his car. The bullet, Nix explained at the time, ricocheted off his sternum and entered his lung. He had surgery to remove it. His mother told Becker that, since then, Nix has not liked to go out. In a video posted at the time of the shooting, Nix said he didn’t want to die.

Nix’s mother said she does not believe, however, that the latest development is related to the shooting, according to BlackSportsOnline.

If you have any information about Nix’s whereabouts, contact the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office at (904) 630-0500.
