Blake Griffin’s Ex Is Suing Him for Palimony, Blames His Interest in Kendall Jenner

Brynn Cameron, the mother of Blake Griffin's kids, has filed a lawsuit against the Pistons star that claims he left her and their children for Kendall Jenner. According to TMZ, the lawsuit says Griffin stepped out on his fiancee after “cruelly embarrassing his family with his public fawning over Kendall Jenner.”

The former couple, who had dated on and off for eight years, have both a son and daughter together. They were also engaged (hence the fiancee line above) but that wedding was broken off this past summer after Griffin became taken with Jenner. According to Cameron, that break-up came a week before their wedding, and was the result of her refusing to sign a prenuptial agreement that she says she didn't sign because it violated a pact they made in 2013.

As TMZ notes, the lawsuit also invokes Griffin's recent trade to Detroit to talk about what it's like to have your trust violated (I think). “Griffin himself, however, knows very well what breaching promises is all about,” it says. “After all, Griffin had no problem trading Brynn Cameron, his former fiancee, and the mother of his two children, for reality television star Kendall Jenner.”

The lawsuit, which was filed on Wednesday, says that Griffin repeatedly told Cameron he'd support her while telling her to quit her jobs in sports marketing and interior design. The suit also includes a pair of love letters from Griffin that you can read here if you wish.

Finally, the litigation also talks about how Cameron helped counsel Griffin through a feud with ex-teammate Chris Paul as the two apparently battled for the Clippers' locker room. As it's written in the actual lawsuit “[Cameron] strengthened Griffin's bond with his teammates and allowed the organization to see a different side of his personality rather than the hard-partying man-child Griffin had been prior to their cohabitation.”

Cameron goes on to say that Griffin's decision to date Jenner left her and their kids in poor financial shape, saying, “While Griffin is continuing to earn millions from his NBA and endorsement deals, Cameron and their children are homeless and cash-strapped. In Griffin's absence, Cameron's brother has had to provide Cameron and the children with financial support.”

The legal proceeding doesn't ask for a specific amount, but TMZ says it's definitely seven-plus figures.

Joe Jackson Says Quincy Jones ‘Knows Better’ Than to Accuse Michael Jackson of Stealing Music

In case you somehow missed last week's juicy Vulture interview with Quincy Jones, the famous producer made some pretty wild allegations. According to Jones,  he once dated Ivanka Trump, who apparently has “the most beautiful legs” but “the wrong father,” Richard Pryor and Marlon Brando had sex once (which Pryor's widow confirmed), and Michael Jackson “stole a lot of stuff.” Specifically, Jones said Michael stole “Billie Jean” and “Don’t Stop ’Til You Get Enough.” 

TMZ started to ask Joe Jackson on Saturday at the restaurant Toscanova in Calabasas, CA if his son did, in fact, steal the hook of “Billie Jean” from Donna Summer's song “State of Independence.” Joe immediately chimed in and said, “I raised Michael, he's my son. Quincy Jones, he knows better. I don't want to talk about it.” When asked if he thinks Michael wrote “Billie Jean,” he said, “Yes, correct.”

Jones had a seemingly tight relationship with Michael as a co-producer for the late musician's best-selling albums. The producer did not hold back on his MJ gossip during this interview: he also addressed Michael's famous plastic surgery. “[Jackson] has a problem with his looks because his father told him he was ugly and abused him,” Jones said. “What do you expect?” The 84-year-old also addressed the state of music today, which, unsurprising given the tone of the interview, he is not at all impressed with. Pop music is “just loops, beats, rhymes, and hooks,” rap music is “the same phrase over and over and over again, and U2 sucks now, too. And this was just the PG-13 version of the interview.

Travis Scott’s Case for Inciting a Riot Gets Dismissed

As a new father, Travis Scott’s list of things to worry about is only going to get longer. Between baby duties and preparing to drop his upcoming album AstroWorld, Travis is able to put one worry to rest, because according to TMZ his case for inciting a riot has been dismissed.

Travis struck a plea deal, according to a clerk at the Rogers District Court in Arkansas. The rapper pled guilty to disorderly conduct. Meanwhile, the more grave charges of inciting a riot and endangering the welfare of a minor were thrown out. Travis was arrested at one of his concerts back in May, after he allegedly encouraged people to rush the stage. A cop and a security guard, among others, were injured. 

Travis pled not guilty to the charges in May after they were originally filed, but now with this guilty plea and a few payments for fines, Travis’ case is closed. Now he can continue to pour all of his attention into his daughter, his baby mama Kylie Jenner, and his new music.

Rumors circulated for months that Kylie and Travis were having a baby, but it wasn’t until yesterday that the couple officially announced that their daughter was born on Feb. 1. Kylie also shared a pregnancy video montage that shows Travis looking like the most smitten daddy-to-be. “I'm sorry for keeping you in the dark through all the assumptions,” Kylie wrote in an announcement post on Sunday. “I understand you are used to me bringing you along on all my journeys. My pregnancy was something I chose not to do in front of the world. I knew for myself I needed to prepare for this role of a lifetime in the most positive, stress free and healthy way I know how.”

Cardi B Will Never Perform at the Super Bowl Unless the NFL Re-Hires Colin Kaepernick

Conor McGregor Wants a Rematch With Floyd Mayweather

MMA fighter Conor McGregor hinted that though he might want a career in Irish politics, he definitely wants a rematch with his favorite arch-nemesis Floyd Mayweather after losing to him last year, according to TMZ. When McGregor was asked about a fight against fellow martial artist Khabib Nurmagomedov, he switched the conversation to Floyd saying he saying he “needs to fight again.”  The two have had a highly publicized feud even before finally getting in the ring last August. With Floyd hinting at an MMA debut, a rematch might be more than possible.

McGregor's political aspiration is still up in the air. Earlier this week, he posted a cryptic Instagram caption criticizing Ireland's government, pondering over his home state's budget, and implied he may have the solutions. When asked about his commitment to the idea of running for political office in Ireland by TMZ, he seemed to be in much more of a joking mood. “Maybe,” he said, “Who knows?! I know they're shakin' in their boots anyway!”

Conor's original post caption talked about financial awareness, before honing in on government spending. “I find that I am becoming more and more interested in where much of the money in my home state has gone and where it actually goes when it comes in,” it reads. “I see many things I do not like and I see many things that I feel can be easily amended under correct instruction. We shall see.”

McGregor straight-up said, “Fuck the Mayweathers,” in another post.

 

Fuck the Mayweathers.

Lonzo Ball Has Already Scheduled His First Rap Concert in Lithuania

This summer Lonzo Ball will be traveling to Lithuania to perform his first ever rap concert. Going to an Eastern European country for your debut rap concert would seem to be a bizarre move, until you consider that his two brothers are currently playing professional basketball over there. (Actually it still seems kind of odd, but whatever.)

Lonzo's announcement came as his dad, LaVar, was giving out the award for Hip-Hop Act of the Year at the M.A.M.A. Awards (which TMZ describes as being like the “Lithuanian Grammys”). He then introduced his oldest son via a prerecorded video:

For those who are either unaware or in need of a reminder, Lonzo has performed and recorded a number of songs (under the name “Zo”), including “Super Saiyan”:

…”Melo Ball 1″…:

…and, of course, “BBB”:

Jemele Hill Leaving SportsCenter for New Position at ESPN (UPDATE)

UPDATED 4:45 p.m. ET: Hill took to her Twitter to clarify why she's leaving the show in an effort to clear up false rumors that may be spreading around the internet about the switch. She said she voluntarily left the show to get back to “reporting, writing, and commentary.” She also said that, in addition to working for The Undefeated, she'll still be contributing to a “myriad of ESPN shows.”

See original story below.

ESPN's Jemele Hill is changing lanes. After being caught in the middle of an extremely public controversy last fall, Hill has requested to be reassigned from the SC6 edition of SportsCenterSports Illustrated reports. But she looks to at least be staying in the family: Hill's next home will be with The Undefeated, ESPN's offshoot site that covers sports, race, and culture.

But back to that controversy. Take a walk down memory lane with me, as we recall the moment that Hill was thrust into the spotlight. Last September, Hill was having a Twitter conversation with some particularly dim-witted characters about the state of our country. During said conversation, Trump came up and Hill pulled out the yopper.

As you can see, the tweets are still up, meaning Hill was ready with the smoke and more than happy to let it settle. Unfortunately, someone of her status can't exactly call the president a white supremacist and get away with it. ESPN reportedly looked into replacing Hill shortly after, and a White House spokeswoman called for Hill to be fired

Hill was being watched closely from there on out and was suspended for a second violation of social media guidelines for telling her followers how to hypothetically go about protesting the NFL. Trump responded to the suspension, calling Hill out.

After serving her time, Hill told TMZ she deserved the suspension. “I violated the policy,” she said. “Going forward, we'll be in a good, healthy place. It'll be fine. The only thing I apologize for is I put ESPN in a bad spot. I'll never take back what I said. “

Hopefully, this reassignment will give Hill a fresh start with the company.

Fans Keep Reminding Rihanna That She Owes Joel Embiid a Date Now That He’s an All-Star

Philadelphia 76ers​ forward Joel Embiid has been trying to take Rihanna on a date since he entered the league back in 2014. After publicly announcing that he was moving on from a crush on Kim Kardashian to Rihanna, he first started tweeting at her in July 2014—half-jokingly asking the singer on dinner dates.

Rihanna quickly followed him back on Twitter and Embiid said she was considering his offer, but it never materialized into anything. A month later, Embiid shared a cryptic tweet saying that a “famous girl” turned him down and told him, “Come back when you're [an] All Star.”

TMZ later confirmed that the “famous girl” was in fact Rihanna. Embiid wasn't able to make good on his side of the bargain and become an All-Star after getting injured, however. That changed this week when Embiid was named a starter on the Eastern Conference's All-Star team.

Now, fans are flooding Rihanna with messages, making sure she follows through on her end of the deal. Right now, all of her recent posts on Instagram are full of “@joelembiid” tags and comments like, “He's an All-Star now give him a call.”

Joel did have some words about the whole situation, seemingly switching the tables and turning Rihanna down.

Rihanna has yet to publicly respond to any of this, but people on Twitter aren't having a hard time imagining what each of their thoughts are.

Over three years after first shooting his shot, it looks like this might finally work out in Embiid's favor.

Kim and Kanye Reportedly Turning Down Offers as High as $5 Million for Baby Pics

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West welcomed the arrival of their third child, a baby girl, via surrogate on Monday, Jan. 15. According to TMZ, the couple has been fielding absurd offers to supply photos of the newborn months before the birth, but they have continually refused.

Various outlets were offering more than a million dollars, and even $2-5 million, for the photos. In the past, Kim and Kanye waited until North and Saint were two months old before posting their first photos online.

TMZ also reports that Kim was in the hospital room during the delivery, and was the first person to have skin-to-skin contact with the baby. Kanye was in the delivery room as well, but remained behind a curtain as to give the surrogate some privacy during birth. He held the baby after she was born.

Kim made the announcement on her website shortly after the baby's arrival. “Kanye and I are happy to announce the arrival of our healthy, beautiful baby girl,” she wrote. “We are incredibly grateful to our surrogate who made our dreams come true with the greatest gift one could give and to our wonderful doctors and nurses for their special care. North and Saint are especially thrilled to welcome their baby sister.​”

A source told People that Kanye is a “hands-on” dad. “Kanye says that his children have saved his life,” the insider further explained. “This one in particular came along after a very dark time. He’s so in love with his kids.” The couple endured a difficult 2016: Kim was robbed in Paris and Kanye was hospitalized for a nervous breakdown. But it seems that with the arrival of the new baby, the two are bouncing back.

Simone Biles Comes Forward With Allegations Against Olympic Doctor Larry Nassar

Olympic gymnast Simone Biles has come forward with her own allegations against former Team USA gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar. According to TMZ, the 20-year-old issued a statement stating “I too am one of the many survivors that was sexually abused by Larry Nassar.”

Biles supported her fellow gymnasts McKayla Maroney, Aly Raisman, and Gabby Douglas when they came forward with their own allegations last year. In total, Nassar is alleged to have abused over 120 young girls while he worked as medical professional, according to CNN. Nassar’s sentencing hearing begins this week, after he pled guilty to seven counts of sexual misconduct back in November. Accusations against Nassar go back as far as 1998, but were put under a new spotlight thanks to the #MeToo movement.

The gold medalist's statement comes out before several days of victim's testimonies during Nassar's hearing. “Please believe me when I was say it was a lot harder to first speak those words out loud than it is now to put them on paper,” Biles shared in her statement. “There are many reasons that I have been reluctant to share my story, but I know it's not my fault.”

Nassar has already been sentenced to 60 years on child pornography charges.

“This behavior is completely unacceptable, disgusting, and abusive, especially coming from someone whom I was TOLD to trust,” Biles wrote. “As I continue to work through the pain, I kindly ask everyone to respect my privacy. This is a process, and one that I need more time to work through.”
