He was quoted in Rolling Out back in April stating the following:“I’m very excited. Very excited about the baby. It’s our first one and couldn’t have come at a better time. It couldn’t have come with a better person. Someone I really love and care about. It’s great. It really worked out perfectly.” Source
PageSix is reporting that John Legend was caught smooching a girl at NYC club Acme…and it wasn’t his fiancée Chrissy Teigen.
A source said he was partying with male friends who struck up a conversation with “two pretty girls in their late 20s, one blond and one brunette” at the next table. After “chatting all night,” the witness said the blonde got up to go to the bathroom after 1 a.m., and “John followed her.”
John was then seen pulling the woman into a bathroom with him. “He was walking in, and just grabbed her arm and brought her with him,” said the witness. Another witness later. Source
One of Kroy’s ex’s, Elizabeth Seward, came forward to out him for cheating on her with Kim Zolciak.
“It was crazy,” she told In Touch. Elizabeth says she had been dating Kroy since January and was blindsided when she saw the pictures of Kim and Kroy together at the star’s former co-star Cynthia Bailey’s wedding.
“How could you have not told me? I left a week ago,” Elizabeth’s text reads, “I trusted you,” she writes in the text.
“I don’t know what you want me to say. I f—ed up. I’m sorry,” Kroy’s response back reads.
But a source close to Kim insists, “It wasn’t betrayal. It was just the normal thing that happens when someone is dating and finally falls for someone. The other people get left behind, and sometimes they get hurt.” Source
Tennis rising star, Sloan Stephens, beat her mentor, Serena Williams last January in the Australian Open and she says Serena has abandoned her.
She says in ESPN magazine, “She’s not said one word to me, not spoken to me, not said hi, not looked my way, not been in the same room with me since I played her in Australia. And that should tell everyone something, how she went from saying all these nice things about me to unfollowing me on Twitter.
“Like, seriously! People should know. They think she’s so friendly and she’s so this and she’s so that — no, that’s not reality! You don’t unfollow someone on Twitter, delete them off of BlackBerry Messenger. I mean, what for? Why?” Source
Uhhhh, who thought Serena was friendly? Not I…not you…not anyone.
Former NFL player, Terrell Owens, has unsuccessfully over the past few years tried to return to football with no success. So he’s trying his hand at another sport, bowling.
He played this week at the United States Bowling Congress Open Championships and got scores of 185, 129 and 161 in three games.
He said, “The first game went pretty well. I’m still new to this, so when I saw some of the guys switching balls, I felt I should switch, too. I probably should have stayed with the same ball. I ended up going back to the first ball I used and made some other minor adjustments with my feet and eyes.” Source
Good for him, but my mother-in-law, whose knees are shot to holy hell, can score that in her sleep. But good luck with that T.O. I won’t sh!t on a man who’s just trying to get them checks. (OK…maybe just a little)
An auction house is suing Kobe Bryant for trying to stop his mother Pam from selling his high school memorabilia.
Pam Bryant made a deal with Goldin Auctions to sell a bunch of Kobe’s stuff including a 2000 All Star game signed ball, game and practice jerseys from his days at Lower Merion High School, a Lakers jacket and shorts, trophies, his varsity high school letters and lots of other stuff.
The auction house bought the memoribela from Pam with a $450,000 advance. Pamela told them Kobe gave her all the items 5 years ago.
But Kobe claims it’s his stuff and he’s trying to block the auction.
So Goldin Auctions has gone to court, naming Kobe as the defendant and asking a judge to declare Pamela the owner of the goods. Source
Jason Collins of the Boston Celtics is the first professional male athlete to come out as gay. He tells us his story in his own words in the May 6th issue of Sports Illustrated where he says, “I’m a 34-year-old NBA center. I’m black. And I’m gay.”
Read the full story below:
I’m a 34-year-old NBA center. I’m black. And I’m gay.
I didn’t set out to be the first openly gay athlete playing in a major American team sport. But since I am, I’m happy to start the conversation. I wish I wasn’t the kid in the classroom raising his hand and saying, “I’m different.” If I had my way, someone else would have already done this. Nobody has, which is why I’m raising my hand.
My journey of self-discovery and self-acknowledgement began in my hometown of Los Angeles and has taken me through two state high school championships, the NCAA Final Four and the Elite Eight, and nine playoffs in 12 NBA seasons.
I’ve played for six pro teams and have appeared in two NBA Finals. Ever heard of a parlor game called Three Degrees of Jason Collins? If you’re in the league, and I haven’t been your teammate, I surely have been one of your teammates’ teammates. Or one of your teammates’ teammates’ teammates.
Now I’m a free agent, literally and figuratively. I’ve reached that enviable state in life in which I can do pretty much what I want. And what I want is to continue to play basketball. I still love the game, and I still have something to offer. My coaches and teammates recognize that. At the same time, I want to be genuine and authentic and truthful.
Why am I coming out now? Well, I started thinking about this in 2011 during the NBA player lockout. I’m a creature of routine. When the regular season ends I immediately dedicate myself to getting game ready for the opener of the next campaign in the fall. But the lockout wreaked havoc on my habits and forced me to confront who I really am and what I really want. With the season delayed, I trained and worked out. But I lacked the distraction that basketball had always provided.
The first relative I came out to was my aunt Teri, a superior court judge in San Francisco. Her reaction surprised me. “I’ve known you were gay for years,” she said. From that moment on I was comfortable in my own skin. In her presence I ignored my censor button for the first time. She gave me support. The relief I felt was a sweet release. Imagine you’re in the oven, baking. Some of us know and accept our sexuality right away and some need more time to cook. I should know — I baked for 33 years.
When I was younger I dated women. I even got engaged. I thought I had to live a certain way. I thought I needed to marry a woman and raise kids with her. I kept telling myself the sky was red, but I always knew it was blue.
I realized I needed to go public when Joe Kennedy, my old roommate at Stanford and now a Massachusetts congressman, told me he had just marched in Boston’s 2012 Gay Pride Parade. I’m seldom jealous of others, but hearing what Joe had done filled me with envy. I was proud of him for participating but angry that as a closeted gay man I couldn’t even cheer my straight friend on as a spectator. If I’d been questioned, I would have concocted half truths. What a shame to have to lie at a celebration of pride. I want to do the right thing and not hide anymore. I want to march for tolerance, acceptance and understanding. I want to take a stand and say, “Me, too.”
Imagine you’re in the oven, baking. Some of us know and accept our sexuality right away and some need more time to cook. I should know – I baked for 33 years.
The recent Boston Marathon bombing reinforced the notion that I shouldn’t wait for the circumstances of my coming out to be perfect. Things can change in an instant, so why not live truthfully? When I told Joe a few weeks ago that I was gay, he was grateful that I trusted him. He asked me to join him in 2013. We’ll be marching on June 8.
No one wants to live in fear. I’ve always been scared of saying the wrong thing. I don’t sleep well. I never have. But each time I tell another person, I feel stronger and sleep a little more soundly. It takes an enormous amount of energy to guard such a big secret. I’ve endured years of misery and gone to enormous lengths to live a lie. I was certain that my world would fall apart if anyone knew. And yet when I acknowledged my sexuality I felt whole for the first time. I still had the same sense of humor, I still had the same mannerisms and my friends still had my back.
Believe it or not, my family has had bigger shocks. Strange as it seems today, my parents expected only one child in 1978. Me. When I came out (for the first time) the doctors congratulated my mother on her healthy, seven-pound, one-ounce baby boy. “Wait!” said a nurse. “Here comes another one!” The other one, who arrived eight minutes later and three ounces heavier, was Jarron. He’s followed me ever since, to Stanford and to the NBA, and as the ever-so-slightly older brother I’ve looked out for him.
I had a happy childhood in the suburbs of L.A. My parents instilled in us an appreciation of history, art and, most important, Motown. Jarron and I weren’t allowed to listen to rap until we were 12. After our birthday I dashed to Target and bought DJ Quik’s album Quik Is the Name. I memorized every line. It was around this time that I began noticing subtle differences between Jarron and me. Our twinness was no longer synchronized. I couldn’t identify with his attraction to girls.
I feel blessed that I recognized my own attractions. Though I resisted my impulses through high school, I knew that when I was ready I had someone to turn to: my uncle Mark in New York. I knew we could talk without judgment, and we did last summer. Uncle Mark is gay. He and his partner have been in a stable relationship forever. For a confused young boy, I can think of no better role model of love and compassion.
I didn’t come out to my brother until last summer. His reaction to my breakfast revelation was radically different from Aunt Teri’s. He was downright astounded. He never suspected. So much for twin telepathy. But by dinner that night, he was full of brotherly love. For the first time in our lives, he wanted to step in and protect me.
On getting back together with Kordell, Porsha says, “You know, I really don’t have the space in my mind to consider that right now. I’m in the middle of a divorce, so reconciliation is not at the top of my list. So, that’s not something I’m thinking about.”
Porsha says she still hasn’t committed to returning just yet:
“You know, it’s a possibility. You know, this last season for me was bittersweet. I gained some great girlfriends and some oner situations just fell apart for me. So it’s something I’m considering, I just haven’t really decided just yet.” Source
Kobe Bryant tore his Achilles tendon during the Lakers agaim against the Golden State Warriors.
“Bryant elected to have surgery to repair the torn left Achilles tendon,” the team said. “The successful surgery was performed by Dr. Neal ElAttrache and Dr. Stephen Lombardo of the Kerlan Jobe Orthopaedic Group. Recovery time is expected to be a minimum of six to nine months.”
Kobe posted on Twitter:
“This is such BS! All the training and sacrifice just flew out the window with one step that I’ve done millions of times! The frustration is unbearable. The anger is rage. Why the hell did this happen ?!? Makes no damn sense. Now I’m supposed to come back from this and be the same player Or better at 35?!? How in the world am I supposed to do that??
“I have NO CLUE. Do I have the consistent will to overcome this thing? Maybe I should break out the rocking chair and reminisce on the career that was. Maybe this is how my book ends. Maybe Father Time has defeated me.”
This is the 16th season in the league for the 34-year-old Kobe. Source
Tax records reportedly show that Lamar’s charity, Cathy’s Kids, hasn’t given any money to cancer-related causes since it was created in 2004.
According to ESPN, in the case of Odom, 33, eight years of tax records revealed that his charity, Cathy’s Kids – named in honor his late mother who died of stomach cancer – has not given any money to cancer-related causes since its creation in 2004, despite raising an estimated a whopping $2.2 million.
In addition, the investigation says it found the charity primarily existed to finance two elite youth basketball travel teams. Of the $2.2 million raised by the charity, ESPN reports that at least 60 percent — $1.3 million — went to those AAU teams.
Shockingly, the charity paid only one executive — Jerry DeGregorio, Odom’s high school coach and best man in his wedding to Kardashian, says the report. DeGregorio — now an assistant coach with the Golden State Warriors — was secretary of Cathy’s Kids from 2004 through 2011, for which he was paid a median annual salary of about $72,000, while the charity operated at a loss since its creation.
ESPN reports that its 2011 tax returns show Cathy’s Kids is $256,000 in debt, mostly due to a loan Odom made to the charity, according to his business manager Lester Knispel, who is also the charity’s treasurer.
When approached in a locker room by “Outside the Lines,” Odom responded to the charity’s spending habits by saying, “It’s my money.”
And the image below shows part of Khloe’s involvement raising funds for the controversial charity. Khloe and Lamar set up an eBay account together, selling items from their “personal collection” to benefit the charity, according to their own description.
ESPN notes in its story that if a charity spends money — including paying someone a salary as in the case of DeGregorio — on activities not consistent with its stated mission, that could be a violation of tax law that could draw the ire of the IRS or a state attorney general’s office. If fraud was found, prosecutors could file charges.
Kordell Stewart filed for divorce from wife Porsha and asked that there be no spousal support or division of assets. Well according to TMZ, Porsha filed a counter suit claiming she should be compensated because she didn’t work while they were married and she helped take care of Kordell’s son from a previous relationship. She’s requesting spousal support, the house and legal fees. Source
She may not fight for the marriage, but she sure as hell is gonna fight for that money.
Michael Jordan has reportedly made his fiancée, Yvette Prieto, sing a prenup that is actually a pretty sweet deal for both of them.
If they divorce she’ll walk away with $1 million for each year of marriage, and if the divorce happens after 10 years, she will get $5 million for year they stayed together.
When he split form ex, Juanita Vanoy, she walked away with custody of their three children, their Chicago home and $168 million. In order for Yvette to get that kinda money, they’ll have to divorce after 41 years. Source
Since she didn’t help him build his empire she doesn’t need the kinda dough that Juanita raked in. I’m sure Juanita put in the work and put up with enough foolishness to earn every red cent.
Kim Zolciak’s husband, NFL player Kroy Bierman, wants to adopt her two daughters from a previous relationship.

Recently Chad went in on Ev for no real reason at all. Then her daughter Shaniece read his ass. Well Evelyn isn’t taking this whole thing lightly. She’s issued a cease and desist letter ordering him to shut his face. She claims the things he said about her, namely that she slept her way into a book deal with Cash money, are false. She wants him to stop lying about her or she’ll get a restraining order against him. Source
Deion Sanders originally won full custody of his two sons, Shilo & Shedeur, with estranged wife Pilar. Pilar was given custody of the couple’s daughter, Shelomi. However, Deion obtained a court order granting him full custody of Shelomi.
Pilar’s rep, Kali Bowyer, said, “Unbelievable. He gets a judge to sign off on an order to take her daughter. Whose payroll is this judge on? Certainly not the taxpayers’.” Source
I’m scared of what Pilar is going to do. She seems type crazy and extra unstable these days.
Sidebar, why did they do that to those children? Those names are not even necessary.
Michael Jordan is off the hook in that paternity case. Pamela Smith, the mother of the 16-old boy she’d claimed MJ fathered, dropped the case.
Pamela and her lawyer Randy Kessler had this to say today:
“Ex-Girlfriend of Michael Jordan, Ms. Pamela Smith authorized a dismissal of the current suit against Mr. Jordan. She began this case without an attorney, did her best to file what she believed to be a legally appropriate case. She then hired our firm. Our firm reviewed the legal posture of the case, the history of the case, the filed pleadings and the relevant law. Ms. Smith has relied on our advice, has carefully considered the pro’s and cons of continuing the case and has determined that dismissal at this time, without prejudice, is what is in her son’s best interests.” Source
I’m sure we will never hear from Pam again. She’s probably signed a gag order and will be hiding out in her brand new house til the end of her days. Cus I smell a pay off like a mutha.
The LA Lakers should probably just quit now. They’re not having the best season to start with. And now that Kobe is hurt it’s only going to get worse. Kobe sprained his ankle during Wednesday’s game against the Atlanta Hawks, a game that the Lakers lost.
After the game, Kobe said refs should protect shooters better.
He said, “As defensive players, you can contest shots, but you can’t walk underneath players. That’s dangerous for the shooter.”
Since Kobe has already started trying to get better, He tweeted: “Compression. Ice. Django. Zero Dark Thirty. This is Forty and 1 hour of sleep. #countonwill #countonhaters. On to the next.”

The National Enquirer is reporting that O.J. Simipson was attacked in jail by a group of skinheads. But it was one of “The Girls”, a group of homosexuals he’s buds with, that protected him.
A source said, “The guards sounded the sirens from the prison towers and rushed in with tear gas guns and other firepower. At first, O.J. was watching all this from a distance and didn’t even notice that two inmates were approaching him.
“Then, one of ‘The Girls’ spotted a flash of metal. It was sunlight reflecting from the blade of a knife wielded by a bald white power prison inmate rushing at O.J.
“At the same time, another one of ‘The Girls’ saw an attacker coming from the other side.
“The two white power prisoners charged toward O.J. They lunged at him and slashed at his face, coming close to cutting him. Luckily, they were blocked by his girly-man buddies. They may act like chicks but, believe me, they’re darn tough.”
O.J. ran for the safety of his cell, crying, “I don’t want to die.”
The source added, “O.J. is taking a big risk because he doesn’t want to be in his cell for hours at a time and isolated from everyone else. Almost every day he sits around in the yard and holds court. ‘The Girls’ and other starstruck pals call him ‘The Godfather,’ and they are willing to protect him with their lives.” Source
This is the best story I’ve ever heard and I need this to be turned into a TV One movie.
The ENQUIRER is reporting that Elin Nordegren and Tiger Woods are getting back together at the request of their children. This news comes as the couple was recently photographed together for the first time since their split.
A source said, “Tiger and Elin have been secretly discussing getting back together for several weeks.
“The final straw came when Sam begged Elin, ‘Please, Mommy, marry Daddy again! I want him home with us all the time!’
“It touched Elin’s heart. Since then, she’s spent the night at Tiger’s house several times, but they’re taking it slow.
“Elin wants to ease back into the relationship before she walks down the aisle with Tiger again.” Source
If they do get back together, I wonder if she’ll have to give back that $100 million she got in the divorce.

Dwyane Wade’s ex, Siovaughn Wade, has filed documetns saying that Dwayne is abusive to their children because he has deprived them of their asthma medicine.
The docs claim Dwyane“has never obtained any asthma inhalers or asthma nebulizer machines for the children since [Dwyane] was awarded children in his custody on March 11, 2011.”
“[Dwyane] recklessly failed to provide the five and ten-year-old children with any medication for a life-threatening illness.”
She also claims Dwyane’s been screwing her out of parenting time … “continuously and willfully making every effort to alienate the children from [her].”
She wants Dwyane prosecuted for visitation abuse. Source
Siovaughn needs better people. (She prolly needs some meds or at the very least therapy as well.) I don’t want to write her off as being crazy. I think she loves her kids and wants the best for them. But there’s some kind of emotional or chemical imbalance driving her actions as well. Her antics have landed her in jail, had her kids taken from her and make TWELVE lawyers throw up the deuces at her.
So she needs to get a lawyer with a thick skin, a high priced PR person, some Haldol and a chair to promptly sit down in. Please and thank you.
Oprah Winfrey’s interview with Lance Armstrong is all people have been talking about today. Lance finally admitted to using performance enhancing drugs while competing in the Tour Du France. He said that he used EPO, testosterone, human growth hormone and other banned substances during his career.
He pretty much said it wasn’t his fault. “I didn’t invent the culture, but I didn’t try to stop the culture, and that’s my mistake, and that’s what I have to be sorry for, and that’s what something and the sport is now paying the price because of that,” he added. “So I am sorry for that. I don’t think — I didn’t have access to anything else that nobody else did.
He said, “I had this exercise because I kept hearing I’m a drug cheat. I’m a cheat. I’m a cheater. And I went in and just looked up the definition of cheat. . . . And the definition of cheat is to gain an advantage on a rival or foe that they don’t have. I didn’t view it that way. I viewed it as a level playing field.”
USADA chief executive officer Travis Tygart said, “Tonight, Lance Armstrong finally acknowledged that his cycling career was built on a powerful combination of doping and deceit. His admission that he doped throughout his career is a small step in the right direction. But if he is sincere in his desire to correct his past mistakes, he will testify under oath about the full extent of his doping activities.”
Lance’s LIVESTRONG Foundation released a statement saying:
“We at the LIVESTRONG Foundation are disappointed by the news that Lance Armstrong misled people during and after his cycling career, including us.” Source
It’s a little anticlimactic, no? Plus he doesn’t seem to have any remorse. So I feel very meh about this. What are your thoughts?

He needs to go to jail for all this lyin he’s been doing all these years. Lance, just cus you’ve only got one nut doesn’t make it OK.

Pilar Sanders has lost temporary custody of her two sons to estranged husband, Deion Sanders. She will retain custody of their daughter but Deion’s child support payments to her have been reduced from $10,5000 to $5,500 a month.
Her publicist, Kali Bowyer, said, “Pilar has become a victim of Deion’s celebrity status, which has swayed the courts and blinded justice . . . It has become evident at this point that there is an absolute prejudice against Pilar, and this has become a completely one-sided court circus.” Pilar herself said, “I am sad that Deion has been able to keep my boys away from me since Oct. 26 — no Halloween, no Thanksgiving — and now he is threatening to keep them away from me for Christmas. . . .

Alison Mathis, Chris Bosh’s first baby mama, took him to court and tried to have a judge declare Chris’s legal state of residence Florida instead of Texas. If a judge agreed to this, Chris would be forced to increase his child support payment from $2,600/month to $30,000/month.
However, the judge didn’t rule in her favor and the original ruling stands.
Alison had at one point filed for food stamps claiming she was destitute. Source
Yes, he can afford to give more, and I’m not sure exactly why he isn’t, that’s between them. But $2,600/month is enough to take care of two people (her and the child) and she wouldn’t even have to work. She just has to be careful with her dollars like the rest of us. I think this is more about money. I think she’s pissed the new chick got wifed up and her and her seed are living it up whilst living in mansions and eating at the finest restaurants. Meanwhile, Alison is renting and the fanciest place she’s been lately is Cheesecake Factory.
Jovan Belcher of the Kansas City Chiefs was involved in a murder-suicide this morning. He shot his girlfriend, Kassandra Perkins, at their home before going to Arrowhead Stadium and fatally shooting himself in front of General Manager Scott Pioli, Coach Romeo Crennel and other team personnel.

Lindsay Lohan was arrested early this morning following an incident where she allegedly punched a woman in the face at Club Avenue in NYC.
The woman, Tiffany Mitchell, is a psychic and had a premonition about Lindsay. So she approached her to offer her a free reading. Lindsay allegedly called the woman a “gypsy.” Tiffany started insulting Lindsay saying “Liz and Dick sucked.” And at some point Lindsay allegedly punched TIff in the face.
By the time the cops go tthere, Lindsay had left. But they were able to track down the car she was in and arrest her. Source
This whole thing is stupid. If the chick was such a great psychic she shoulda ducked.
Jerramy Stevens was arrested yesterday for violating he probation from a 2010 marijuana possession charge.
Jerramy was arrested just two weeks ago for allegedly assaulting his wife, soccer player, Hope Solo. Those charges were dropped and the couple of two months got married the next day.
Responding to the talk of Jerramy’s most recent arrest, Hope took to Twitter and wrote, “I feel bad for all the ignorance in the world. People are so quick to judge. The media spins stories in such dramatic fashion. I will Continue to show love, and never make judgments. I am blessed w True Love & the beautiful game of soccer. I wish everybody the same happiness.” Source
Folks feel sorry for her. They shouldn’t. Bish gotta be off to not only be with a dude like this but to be so ride or die for him. On the bright side of things, if he’s in jail, he can’t lump up any more women. We know how much he likes doing that.
Ex-NFL star, Warren Sapp, has been going through a bunch of financial issues, having to file for bankruptcy. And because of this he’s asking that the $2,500 monthly child support payments he make be lowered.
His baby mama, Angela Sanders says she’s “frustrated” by Sapp’s request because she was fine sticking to the $2,500 a month while he was making buckets of money, so it’s unfair for him to lower it now.
Warren is also trying to modify child-support payments for his 4 other baby mamas.
Royce Reed and Dwight Howard are still embroiled in a pretty nasty custody battle. And now that Royce has been axed from ‘Basketball Wives’ she’s having trouble paying her legal fees. So she’s asking that Dwight pay her bills.
Royce filed documents asking a judge to make Dwight cover her legal bills to ensure a fair case, since he’s the one who filed for sole custody of their son. She says that since he makes over $1.3 million a month, he can afford to hire high profile lawyers while she’ll get buried in bills and be forced to drop out of the procedings.
She’s already racked up a $44,113.50 bill and is expected to tack on another $60,000 plus if she wants to continue with the case. Source
I know it sucks and it’s not fair…but do you think he should have to pay her legal bills?

Former NFL player, Jerramy Stevens was arrested for assault after getting into an argument with soccer player girlfriend, Hope Solo.
Jerramy and Hope were fighting over where to live once they got married. Cops were called to the home and when Hope was found to have a small amount of blood on her elbow, Jerramy was arrested.
Hope, however, wasn’t very cooperative, and Jerramy wasn’t charged due to lack of evidence. Source
So I looked up Jerramy on Wiki (that ish is my Gospel) and found that Jerramy likes to get in fights, get wasted and generally act a GD fool. I also found out that he and his fiancé Hope started dating in August…OF THIS YEAR! This whole thing is dumb.
Charles Tillman, of the Chicago Bears, and his wife Jackie are about to welcome their fourth child.
He tweeted, “God, family, football. Baby is coming Monday. Don’t worry, I’ll be there Sunday.
“This game is important to me, but after what we went through with my middle child Tiana, to me football is second … It’ll always be second or third in my life. That was a great lesson learned, to teach me that family — when I’m done playing football — my family will always be there for me.” Source
Congrats to them! And I know some folks are pissed he’d miss a game to see his child born, but um, let’s get over ourselves people. Your child’s life or a game of football. And if he didn’t want to be there we’d be calling him a deadbeat. I can’t.
The NBA suspended Matt Barnes after he pled no contest to interfering with the duties of an officer.
Back in July he was arrested for driving on a suspended license and resisting arrest. The suspended license charge was dropped when he proved he had a valid license. But the NBA has decided to suspend him for his first game against the Grizzlies for the other charge. He’ll be back to work on Friday when the Clippers face the Lakers. Source
Do you think the suspension was necessary or is the NBA making an example of Matt?
Evelyn Lozada is apparently cool with Chad now. Well, she’s cool enough to not want the no-contact order to continue. Word is that she plans to let the no-contact order against him expire because she just wants to “move on.” Source

Sheree Whitfield of ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ fame, recently won a big settlement in her child support cse against ex-husband, Bob Whitfiled.
Bob admitted to missing 38 monthly payments of $2,142, which totals over $81K.
A judge awarded her $75K in back child support.
Bob has to hand over the $75k before Nov. 11, or face the consequences in court. He’s also agreed to pay $1K a month for a year before going back to the original agreement of $2,142/month. Source
I’m happy for Sheree. Maybe now she can get back her Bentley and finally complete Chateau Sheree. Oh wait, I mean, maybe now she can buy her son some sneakers that aren’t on the sale table at the sneaker store.
Stephon Marbury allegedly had an affair with his private chef, Thurayyah Mitchell, then offered her almost $1 million to keep her mouth shut.
She worked for him for less than a year when he fired her. She claimed she was the victim of sexual harassment and even though he felt the relationship was consensual he still offered her $900K to keep quiet. He stopped paying her around the $600K mark and the case went into arbitration.
“It is uncontroverted that during Ms. Mitchell’s employment, she had a sexual relationship with Stephon Marbury which she described as occurring on approximately five occasions,” the arbitrator found.
She was awarded $330,000.
The filing became public yesterday, after her lawyers asked a judge to enforce the award.
During the arbitration proceedings, Stephon said that the money was to “buy Ms. Mitchell’s silence” because “a revelation of Mr. Marbury’s extramarital affair would embarrass him with his wife and children.” Source

Chad has managed to avoid jail time as part of a plea deal for pleading no contest to misdemeanor domestic battery. He was sentenced to probation, anger management classes and must avoid all contact with ex-wife, Eveylin Lozada.
“She did not wish to proceed with the prosecution and certainly did not wish that Mr. Johnson be incarcerated as a result of this incident,” prosecutor Sarahnell Murphy said. Source
Do you think he’ll be able to leave her alone after his much publicized plea for reconciliation?
Chad will not be facing jail time for head butting his wife. As part of a plea deal, he’ll be placed under probation and have to go to anger management. He also agreed to a no-contact order that would prevent him from having any contact with Evelyn. Source
Chad told Showtime’s Inside the NFL, “I’m taking classes, anger management classes. I’m trying to find out how can I channel my anger when I’m in situations to where I would pop off. How can I defuse those situations?
“Where do I go from here, now that I think about it? I gotta work on Chad. Chad has to work on Chad. Chad has to go deep down inside and figure out where he went wrong. At what point did you lose focus on what’s most important, especially the game of football?” Source
Yea, Chad has tow work on Chad. Chad has to work period. He got four kids and if he doesn’t watch it he’ll end up like his buddy T.O.

Unless they told the film’s creators that certain things were off limits then they can’t really get mad. I mean, if it walks like a duck…
Never before heard claims of abuse from Jean Strahan by Michael Strahan are now being revealed. Apparently in their 2005 divorce case Jean painted him as a real monster. During a court hearing she said that he beat her repeatedly when they were together. She said that he’s broken her nose, given her black eyes, and beat her so bad that her kidneys were damaged to the point she was peeing blood.
She said the beatings happened only while they were dating and stopped after they got married.
The judge hearing the complaint dismissed the claims against Strahan made by his then-wife. Source
I’d heard he was a cheat, gay and an overall creep. I never heard about him being a woman beater. What do you guys thing? Does the ‘lovable’ co-host of Live! With Kelly and Michael, seem capable of what he’s being accused of?
Lindsay was trying to park her Porsche this morning near the Dream Hotell when she allegedly hit some guy in the knee with her car. One of her passengers got out and checked the car for damage then Lindsay and her entourage went into the hotel. While she was inside someone called the cops who were waiting for her when she left the hotel at 2:30am. They promptly arrested her for leaving the scene of an accident.
As Lindsay was taken into custody she screamed, “Call my dad! Call my dad!”
She was booked and released with a desk appearance ticket.
The victim was hospitalized but didn’t have any visible injuries at the scene.
This could affect her probation if there’s probable cause to believe she committed a crime.
Lindsay is telling friends she had no idea she hit anybody and it wasn’t until she came out and got arrested that she knew anything was going on.
She also says that no one got out of her car to check for damages because the hit and run didn’t happen. Source
She could be telling the truth. But she’s such an easy target that she might end up paying for something she didn’t do. Some would consider it karma since she didn’t get punished for a lot of stuff she’s done in the past. We’ll just have to wait and see.

Dwyane Wade’s ex-wife Siohvaughn opened up in an interview and she has a lot to share. In the past few years she’s been dealing with the aftermath of her split with Dwyane and has been arrested, belived to be crazy and gone through 12 lawyers.
She even alleges that she was abused by Dwyane while she was pregnant.
She says, “I was pregnant with Zion. Shortly before being hospitalized I was in Florida and I woke up in the middle of the night because I was sick, obviously with the pregnancy. I noticed that Mr. Wade wasn’t in the house. I was calling him and calling him because it was probably like, two or three o’ clock in the morning and we went to bed together which means he must have gotten up out of the bed and just left in the middle of the night without telling me. I was looking for him. I looked around the house. I was calling his phone he didn’t answer. He finally got back several hours later, it was well into the next day and I was very upset. I was asking where was he and why he [would] just leave without saying anything.
“His response was at first to be verbally abusive. He was cursing, he was calling me names, he was telling me to shut the ‘f’ up.[...]He picked me up and held me over his head literally in midair and threw me down in our bathroom. We had an ottoman in the bathroom and he slammed me down so hard that when my back hit the ottoman it broke into four pieces and my back and head hit the concrete, the marble floor, excuse me, in the bathroom. After that I got up and immediately went — there’s a cordless phone in the bathroom, I immediately went to that phone and I was crying, I was hysterical, I went to go call the police. At that point more hell broke lose because I suppose he was in fear of being exposed because I certainly was going to call the police. I picked up the cordless phone, he snatched it out of my hand and he threw the cordless phone against my body so hard that the phone literally broke into pieces.
