Why So Many Recordings?
It is duly noted that this case has seen a lot of recordings being presented at the court. The recordings have been very violent, disrespectful, and abusive from both sides. The recordings have appeared as evidence in the trial. The recordings have been used to show the fight between the two who have been abusive. The recordings have been the part of the wedding that was not going well.
Why The Case Is Everywhere?
The case has garnered so much attention and is everywhere because it is being telecasted live; secondly, it has several celebrities as witnesses. The trial, for many, has become like a TV reality drama that is giving a daily dose of entertainment; as this is not the case that needs this much attention; several issues need the utmost attention of the people and need to be discussed if we take its popularity due to the celeb title then it is to be noted that even celeb scandals tend to die off quickly as people start getting bored with it after a certain point of time.
