CHAIM: Great.
His name is Mauricio Costello Jackson.

There is a 400-page trial transcript

hair off of your motherfuckin' neck.
And to make matters worse,
while he was in trial
more shit came up.
He got hit with a slew of other charges.

LEIA: Honestly, I just think it's
really fucked up that we're
all just sitting around
watching Jocelyn get assaulted.
And no one is saying anything.
Like, Destiny isn't saying anything.
I don't know where Chaim is.
Like, they're all letting
this psychopath exploit her
beca Sorry, but he is.
Just so that they can make money?
Like all of these people
say that it's their job
to take care of her,
but they don't really care.
Okay. I know his methods
could seem odd to outsiders,
but it's his process.
And it works.
Yeah I think that it's great,
but I don't think that it's, like
I don't think it's worth it.
You know, Tedros always says
there's two types of people:
the ones that support you and
the ones that are obstacles.
- So, am I one of the obstacles?
- Are you?
Honestly, Izaak, I'm just
really scared for her right now.
He's doing mind control
on her or something
- Mind control?
- Yeah! He's, like,
using her in front of other people
like she's not even a human being.
Well, she's not a human being.
She's a star.

alter the course of their life.

time we've ever done this. Have we?

at the end of the other day,
that was all we needed
to convince everyone.
So we just need to have you
record the vocals, and it's all yours.
You will have access to every division
and every person in every
division of our company.
That means we oversee your record,
we pair you with the top
producers in the industry,

the major streaming platforms,
bumps in the algorithm, a full
team of legal support at your back,
merchandise: your face on t-shirts,
marketing campaigns,

I'm good. I'm good. You know, I, um
I think it's no secret
that I lost my mom, uh,
fairly recently, and, uh,
you know, grief comes in, in waves.
And, uh, you definitely
caught me in the middle of a,
a big one. And I, I, I kind of
wish I had handled that day, um,
a little better. But, uh, you know,
I'm just doing the
best that I, that I can.

concerning when somebody that you
love is in a state

for your dead mother during
the music video shoot.

Stand straight.
Does anybody know the
meaning of the word
It's not a child and its mother.
No that's "domus,"
the root of the word "domestic."
The root of the word
"family" is "famulus."

"Famulus" means "servant."
It is our duty to serve our family.
Why don't you sing anymore?
I, um I tore my vocal
cords couple years ago.
Yeah, Jocelyn told me that.
Huh, interesting.
But I was walking by your
room and I heard you sing
and you sound great.
So, you're either fully healed
or you're lying. (CHUCKLES)
What else did Jocelyn tell you?
That her mom outed
you when you were 13
and it crippled you.
Then you left the show.
And then you quit singing
because you had a "vocal injury."
Despite all that, you still
moved in with her and her mom.
Yeah, I-I didn't know that it
was Julianne until much later.
TEDROS: Why don't you sing anymore?
You should really use the
gift that God gave you.
You ask Jocelyn how
she feels about that?
What does Jocelyn have to do with it?

- TEDROS: Woo! Let's go! Woo!
- MIKE: Yeah!
TEDROS: That was so fuckin' beautiful.
Are you hearing this shit?
You told me. You told me hits.
That's what you and Chaim said, "hits."
No, I-I like it. I very,
very much so like it.
Music's killer.
Vocally, if we keep her vocals
kinda like, you know what I mean?
Sing-songy in the middle to
You think the vocals should
be grittier at that place.
You 'Kay, It needs to
be like the (GRUNTS)
Yeah, I, I, I see what you mean.
You like It's good though, right?
1,000%. That's the only note I have
for the whole fuckin' entire song.
- Oh.
- DESTINY: Just more grit.
- More grit. Oh, more grit.
- Vocally.
(WHISPERING) You need to get some rest.
You've just been doing,
like, a lot of blow.
No, no, I didn't do any blow.
Baby, I just I feel like you
need to get a little bit of sleep.
- You're starting to be like
- I slept.
All I'm saying is
show the world a little
bit more of what you got.
- I-I like the song the way it is.
- DESTINY: Okay.
But it's just
It's been a long, it's been
a long night. (CHUCKLES)

IZAAK: Look at you.
You're filthy.

So, how much do you know
about, like, his past?
'Cause how long have you guys ?
We, you know, we're still
getting to know each other and stuff.
- Right.
- Yeah.
I can't help but continue
to notice his, his tats.
Oh, yeah. I mean, he's been to prison
- like a couple times.
- Okay, so, you know, you know
- they're prison tats?
- Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
And he told you he went to prison?
Yeah, but he's, like,
really sensitive about it.
He doesn't really like talking
about it with a lotta people.

He had this really fucking
crazy, like, ex-girlfriend.
- Okay.
- And they used to fight a lot.
They had this, like, really
tumultuous relationship.
And there was this one time where
I guess, they were, like, fighting,
and I guess he choked her.
- Who choked who?
- Well, I don't think he choked
They were, like, getting
in a fight, you know
- He choked her?
- He held, ya know
He just was tryna, like,
fend her off, I think.
And she punched him in the face
and I guess he hit her back, ya know?
But like self-defense kinda thing.
The girl kinda made it seem
like he had punched her first.
I mean, at some point,
though, he did hit her, right?
But he was just trying
to, like, defend himself.
And then this girl
came out and was like,
"He hit me," and everything,
and, like, made it this whole thing
like he had abused her, ya know?
- Mm-hmm.
- And then
And then?
IZAAK: You know, Tedros was
talking about your voice.
He said it's stronger than ever.
I'm gonna let you go 'cause
Tedros believes in you, but
you need to do something for him.

There was just this,
like, group of girls
that he was working
with as, like, artists.
Like, they were musicians.
- A work situation?
- Yeah.
And they were trying to,
like, extort him for money.
- Mm-hmm.
- And so, they kinda, like, all got together
and they went to the cops,
and they told the cops
that he was, like, their pimp.
And then he went to prison
for, like, six years.
- Wake up. (CLEARS THROAT)
I got a great fuckin' idea.
You wanna sell tickets, right?
You gotta go public.
(GRUNTS) With what?
My earliest memory when
I was three years old
was of my mother beating
me with a hairbrush.
(SNIFFLES) And for 22 years,
she physically and emotionally
abused me every day.
And I know that there's a lot
of headlines out there about me,
and it feels kind of chaotic
and like I'm unraveling
or something, but, um
(VOICE BREAKING) since it's
just you and me talking,
I just wanna extend
my deepest gratitude
to all of you for allowing me to
process what's been the most
difficult time in my whole life.

And I also wanna make a promise
to you, to all of you,
that I'm not gonna let
the trauma of my past
affect the person that I
wanna be moving forward.
So, to all of you who have
already bought tickets
I just wanna say thank you
so much for being so patient.
And, I promise you, there
is a new Jocelyn coming.
- Yeah, Joss.
TEDROS: Party time. Let's go!



There's a lotta tequila in
this, so so brace yourself.
TEDROS: Don't waste the
tequila. You gotta drink it up.

What are you doing? It's a party.
Yeah, I know. The, the wood
is teak, so I was just, uh
- TEDROS: The wood is what?
- It's teak.
So, I just was cleaning it
up, so that it doesn't stain.
TEDROS: (SNIFFS) Are you, are you
- Y-You're fuckin' with me, right?
- LEIA: What?
TEDROS: What's the fucking problem?
There's not a problem. I'm just
TEDROS: You're ruining
the whole fucking night
and you're still a fucking bitch
- for no fuckin' reason!
- I'm just It's a party all the time.
- TEDROS: You know, you know
- I'm just tryna keep it together.
You know what? You're absolutely right.
I just wanna show you something.
Oh, my God. Stop!
Stop! Fucking stop!

embarrassed her in front of everyone.
- The fuck

You She doesn't fucking like
you. Why would she like you?
- TEDROS: Jocelyn.
- HEAD: It's alright. It's alright.
TEDROS: Jocelyn, get back here.
JOCELYN (CHUCKLING): What did you take?
- Molly!
- You took molly?
- Yeah.
Are you feeling good?

Feels like it's been two days.
Ooh. Dyanne's here.
- How are you?
- DYANNE: What are you doing here?
- Huh?
- What are you doing here?
- DYANNE: You texted me
- What do you mean? (CHUCKLES)
I just hope she's not mad at you.
Why would she be mad at me?
CHLOE: 'Cause of you and Tedros.
Why would she be mad
about me and Tedros?
'Cause I know she really likes him.
When Tedros told Dyanne
to bring you to the club,
uh, she didn't think he
would have sex with you.
- TEDROS: What's up, baby?
- DYANNE: You texted me an hour ago saying
TEDROS: Yeah. No, yeah, I was
I just came from there. (VOICE FADES)
DYANNE: Hi, Joss.
- Hi.
- Hey!
- Hey.
- I missed you.
I missed you, too. (SNIFFLES)
- You okay?
- Yeah.
- So, I feel like I have to tell you something.
- What's that?
So when you left the other day,
Nikki asked me to step in
and perform "World Class Sinner."
And I just signed with Magistrate,
and she wants me to
have "World Class Sinner"
as my first single.
Oh, wow.
But I didn't say yes.
I said I would ask you first.
I know it was your song.
that Congratulations.
That's crazy, um.
I mean, that's a huge opportunity

By the way, have you met
the Kung Fu Master here?
I don't need to. Come on.
ROB: So, what did I do
to deserve a text back?
You were on my mind.
I feel like I never should've left.
Well, I would've
resented you for staying.
It was too good of an opportunity.
ROB: It's a superhero movie.
My face is visible for literally
five percent of the film.
The rest of the time,
I'm wearing a mask.
They could've cast anybody in that part.
I've seen that latex suit.
- I recognize that ass.
That's so embarrassing.
If I had to do it all
over again, I think that
- Ouch!
- You still would've gone.
And if you hadn't, I-I
would've forced you.
Why didn't you tell me any of this shit?
(SOFTLY) Tell you what?
I don't know, about your mom.
The fact that she'd been
abusing you all these years.
Well, if I'd known you
were gonna come over and
talk about my mom, I probably
wouldn't have texted you.
That actually kind of hurts my feelings.
you're killing me.
You've been ignoring me for a month.
You changed your phone number,
and every time I try to call Leia,
- she says she can't get ahold of you.
- I can't hear a word you're saying, Rob.
Did you say that you care about me
or that you love me? I-I didn't hear.
I said, put some clothes
on, you fucking lunatic.
You're no fun.
