Where Is Ryan Grantham Now? His Lawyer Reveals Their Plan
After being given a life sentence for the murder of his mother, Ryan Grantham’s attorney outlined how Grantham feels about his future.
Ryan Grantham is currently behind bars. Following his plea of murdering his mother, Barbara Waite, 64, in 2020, the former Riverdale actor was recently given a life sentence in jail in Canada with the chance of parole in 14 years.
The Diary of a Wimpy Kid actor shot his mother in the back of her head on March 31, 2020, as she practiced the piano. The incident occurred in the family’s house in Squamish, British Columbia.
He revealed to the police that his original plan was to assassinate Justin Trudeau, the prime minister of Canada. But he later altered his mind and chose to carry out a mass shooting, probably at Simon Fraser University, which he had previously attended.

Grantham’s lawyer, Chris Johnson of Vancouver legal firm Johnson Doyle Nelson & Anderson, claimed that instead of carrying out either plan, he turned himself into the police on April 1, 2020. He went to the Vancouver police and told an officer, “I killed my mother.”
As per the lawyer, the Supernatural actor also had reasoned that killing his mother was necessary so that she wouldn’t have to face the consequences of his planned crimes.
What is next for Ryan Grantham? His lawyer reveals their plan
Grantham was sentenced on Wednesday, September 21, 2022, after pleading guilty to second-degree murder earlier this year.
His lead attorney Johnson exclusively disclosed to E! News that although the case is “finished now that the penalty has been set,” there remains a request they want to make.

In a September 27 statement, Johnson said, “The lawyers plan to send a request to the director of prisons asking them to consider sending Ryan to a medium security facility instead of a max security facility.”
According to Johnson, if the actor is compelled to do his time in a high-security facility, he could be brutalized or worse. According to TMZ, Johnson is concerned that if his client is detained in a maximum security facility, he would be “physically, psychologically, and sexually intimidated.”
Talia Armstrong, a junior defense attorney on Grantham’s team, told E! News that Grantham is feeling relieved now that he has received his sentence, even though it is still uncertain which institution he will be assigned to.
Grantham also received a lifetime handgun ban in addition to his sentence on September 20. According to a statement from BC Prosecution Services acquired by E! News on September 22, both the life sentence and the limitation on possessing firearms are required in British Columbia for second-degree murder.
Armstrong also explained that he had accepted whatever penalty the court judged fit this whole time. She said that although he naturally appreciated being able to petition for parole after 14 years, he was willing to accept the maximum of 25 years before doing so.
Armstrong said, “He’s doing a lot of writing, he’s reading a lot and he just wants to move past this dark time in his life and into something more positive,” and also noted that after his sentence, Grantham “just wants to move on” from the crime he committed.

Lindsey Simon Gurk Opens up about Her Experience with Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder
Lindsey Simon Gurk struggled a lot with PMDD.
Lindsey Simon Gurk recently became vulnerable about her Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder, also known as PMDD, on Instagram.
She shared two videos with a lengthy caption, revealing her struggles with PMDD and how difficult time she had with the disorder her entire life. But fortunately, she was now okay and had not been experiencing the pain for over six months.
Here is everything she shared about her situation.
Lindsey Simon Gurk on Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder
In her first video, uploaded on March 21, 2023, on Instagram, Gurk stressfully shared how she had been struggling with PMDD for a very long time.
She initially shared her experience in September 2022 to help others who were going through the same as her. In the video, she explained how she tried everything she could to fix it.
Unfortunately, none of them were working. One such day when she was in deep pain, she cried in her bathroom, feeling worthless.
She was feeling suicidal and started imagining her husband’s and children’s life without her. Gurk has been with her husband, Mike, for over a decade, and the couple has two kids.
After feeling suicidal, for the first time in her life, the influencer went down on her knees and prayed to God. She begged to end her pain and asked him to use her.
She knew her pain would last forever, and the only solution she had was to pray to God. Surprisingly, after that incident, she did not experience PMDD.
At the time of her uploading the video, she was free from PMDD for six months. Years of pain were gone, and she did not even experience premenstrual syndrome.
In her second video, Gurk explained gleefully how a massive burden had been lifted from her shoulders. She felt that she did not deserve the blessing but was very grateful to be pain-free after so long.

She claimed that getting rid of PMDD was a miracle to her, and was happy that she could lead a normal life. In the captions of the video, she shared how uncomfortable it was to share the thoughts she had.
Regardless, she believed it was important for her to be vulnerable. She wrote, “But I feel it’s necessary to be completely open and vulnerable so that you all can better understand just how dark things got.”
Gurk’s life was a living hell because of PMDD. Her entire life and schedule revolved around the disorder.
She explained, “I actually rearranged my schedule around PMDD. No extended family dinners, girls’ nights, trips, or catch-up phone calls during that time of the month. Again, I didn’t want to bring anyone down.”
Thankfully, her husband was there to see how horrible it was for her and be there to support his wife.
Gurk admitted that PMDD suddenly disappearing might sound fake, but it was not. She was being honest and shared her truth with her fans and followers on Instagram.
She wrote, “Also, I know not everyone shares my beliefs, so thank you for allowing me to share this.” At last, she urged her followers to ask God with an open mind what they wanted, and their wishes might be granted.
“Ask questions. Don’t blindly believe… SEEK the answers with an open heart and quizzical mind. You WILL find Him. And you’ll realize He’s been there with you all along… just waiting,” she ended her statement.
What is premenstrual dysphoric disorder?
PMDD is a medical condition that affects some women during their menstrual cycle. It is a severe form of premenstrual syndrome (PMS) that causes physical and emotional symptoms.
These symptoms start to appear a week or two before menstruation and disappear after the onset of the menstrual cycle. PMDD is characterized by various symptoms, including mood swings, irritability, difficulty concentrating, anxiety, depression, and fatigue.
Some women may also experience physical symptoms such as bloating, breast tenderness, headaches, and joint pain. The symptoms can be severe enough to disrupt the woman’s daily life and relationships.
PMDD is believed to be caused by a combination of hormonal and chemical imbalances in the brain. The female hormones estrogen and progesterone play a crucial role in regulating menstrual cycles and affect the brain’s neurotransmitters, such as serotonin and dopamine.
These neurotransmitters are responsible for regulating mood, appetite, and sleep. When the levels of these hormones fluctuate during the menstrual cycle, it can cause PMDD symptoms.
PMDD affects approximately 5-8% of women who are of reproductive age. It is more common in women who have a history of depression, anxiety, or other mental health conditions.
Women with a family history of PMDD or mood disorders are also at a higher risk of developing PMDD. Diagnosis of PMDD can be challenging, as its symptoms are similar to other medical conditions, such as depression, anxiety, and thyroid disorders.
However, doctors can diagnose PMDD by evaluating the woman’s symptoms over several menstrual cycles and ruling out other medical conditions that may cause similar symptoms.
Treatment for PMDD varies depending on the severity of the symptoms. Mild symptoms can be managed through lifestyle changes such as regular exercise, a healthy diet, and stress management techniques.
Women with more severe symptoms may require medication such as antidepressants or hormonal birth control pills to regulate their hormone levels. In severe cases, women may require surgical removal of their ovaries to eliminate the hormonal fluctuations that cause PMDD.
PMDD can significantly impact a woman’s quality of life and relationships. Women who experience these symptoms should speak to their doctor for diagnosis and treatment. With proper treatment, women with PMDD can manage their symptoms and improve their overall well-being.

Miley Cyrus to Drop New Album ‘Endless Summer Vacation’ Volume 2
Brandi Cyrus remarked, “My favorite song is actually not on here…”
Miley Cyrus has already made an impressive start to 2023, with her latest album, Endless Summer Vacation, debuting at the top of the charts.
However, the pop superstar is not content to sit back, as she is rumored to release Endless Summer Vacation Volume 2 in the coming months.
The move is reminiscent of similar surprise album drops by Taylor Swift and Beyonce and is expected to generate plenty of hype and buzz among fans.
When asked about the album last week, Miley’s sister Brandi Cyrus remarked, “My favorite song is actually not on here, it will be coming out later.” This sparked rumors regarding her plans for Endless Summer Vacation Vol 2.
A source added Miley had written so many “amazing songs” for her latest album that it was evident a standard record would not do it justice.
The source also claimed, initially, the plan was to release the album as Endless Summer Vacation Volume 1, but then the idea of a surprise drop was deemed more appropriate.
The new album will feature even more autobiographical songs about her personal life, including a remix of her recent hit ‘Flowers.’

The surprise album will also focus on Miley’s tumultuous love life, including her failed marriage to Liam Hemsworth and her current relationship with Maxx Morando.
Fans got a hint of what to expect when the 30-year-old singer released some of her most savage lyrics to date on ‘Muddy Feet’ in collab with SIA, where she appeared to confirm rumors that Hemsworth cheated on her.
The upcoming release is expected to be just as personal and revealing as the first volume of Endless Summer Vacation, which quickly became one of Miley’s most acclaimed albums.
With the surprise release of the second volume, the artist is sure to maintain her position as one of the biggest names in pop music.
Miley Cyrus’ ‘Endless Summer Vacation’ debuts at No. 3
Miley has once again proven her enduring popularity with fans, as her latest album, Endless Summer Vacation, debuted at an impressive No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart.
The album has earned a total of 119,00 equivalent album units in its first week, including 61,000 in streaming equivalent album units, marking Miley’s biggest streaming week in history.

The 13-track project also earned 55,000 in album sales. This latest feat adds to Miley’s impressive track record, as it is her 14th US top-10 album and her biggest week by units.
The album’s success can be attributed to its mix of upbeat pop anthems, introspective ballads, and catchy hooks, which showcase her versatility as an artist.
The album’s lead single, ‘Flowers,’ which was released in January, has also been a major factor in the album’s success.
The song spent a total of seven weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, making it the biggest hit of Miley’s career.
With Endless Summer Vacation, the singer has once again demonstrated her ability to reinvent herself and remain relevant in an ever-changing music industry.
