    Best news I heard all day! Let's see if daddy's millions and high priced lawyers gets her out of this one, but I don't know how tough they are in S Africa and how susceptible they are to bribes..She is such a "waste of space" on this planet and she should watch her pot use, she can't afford to lose anymore brain cells..

    Looks like daddy is going to have to shell out mad bank to keep her out of prison. Drug possession and trafficking is a very serious crime overseas.
