NBA baller Nick Young and his girl Iggy Azalea went on a dinner date in Beverly Hills last night. Find out where they went and why Ray Allen is pissed with the way police are handling an investigation after his home was invaded while his wife and children were slepping inside….
L.A. Lakers player Nick “Swaggy P” Young and his rapper girlfriend Iggy Azalea were hungry so they decided to make it a date night. The couple made their way to Mr. Chow in Beverly Hills for some good eats.
As you may or may not know, Nick is currently involved in a sexual assault lawsuit. An unidentified woman made claims that she had non-consensual sex with the NBA player after he bought her several drinks at a bar in West Hollywood back in 2011 (while he was playing for the Washington Wizards). The suit alleges she was taken to Nick's apartment after partying with him at the bar and he had sex with her without her permission.
The woman originally filed the lawsuit against the NBA baller and the Crown Bar but has since filed an amended complaint, dropping three of the seven allegations.
In her original lawsuit, the unidentified woman accused Nick of battery, sexual battery, assault, sexual assault, false imprisonment, intentional infliction of emotional distress and negligence in her new lawsuit. In July, Nick’s lawyer, Steve Cochran, requested three of those charges be dismissed: assault, sexual assault and false imprisonment. The woman’s lawyer did not oppose.
According to Nick’s attorney,
“Mr. Young met with police, provided information without invoking his right to remain silent and gave a genetic sample for DNA testing,” Cochran’s statement read. “The DNA analyzed by police does not match Mr. Young. Proven innocent, Mr. Young was neither arrested nor charged with any crime, based on (the) plaintiff’s story.”
Guess we'll see how this will pan out with time. When will they learn?
And another baller involved in a case....
Last week, eight teenagers (ages 18-19) broke into former Miami Heat star Ray Allen's Coral Gables home while his wife and children were home alone sleeping. The teens had the audacity to roam their entire house, which resulted in his wife, Shannon, being frighteningly awakened to a group of men standing in her bedroom with flashlights!
The free agent and his wife were furious with the way the police were handling the investigation. At first, the Coral Gables Police Department decided NOT to press charges against the teens and simply characterized the incident as a silly prank. Was it because these were rich white kids? Cause we all know what would have happened had it been kids from another race…but that’s for another post.
According to Coral Gables police spokeswoman Kelly Denham, the authorities decided not to press burglary charges because there was no forced entry, no intent (nont sure how they came to that conclusion other than them assuming because they "live in the wealthy neighborhood" they couldn't possibly steal things) and nothing was taken. I n Florida, long as you don’t force yourself in someone’s house and don’t take anything…you won’t be punished if you still enter without permission? Ok.
Allen’s family released a statement detailing the events of that night saying,
“We want to correct the erroneous information being reported about the crime committed in our home this week. On Thursday morning at 2:30 a.m., my wife Shannon was awakened by loud voices in our bedroom where she had been sleeping with our four young children.
“She heard male voices loudly discussing our personal property and sat up in a state of alarm to find at least five people inside our bedroom with large flashlights. She was immediately fearful for the safety of her own life, but more importantly the lives of our young children. When she screamed at them, the intruders quickly fled the scene and laughter was heard as they made their way out of our bedroom, down the stairs and out of our house.
“As these individuals were fleeing our house, Shannon immediately called security and the police for help. Shannon and I believe that a number of the public statements made through media outlets have mischaracterized certain important facts and what we believe to be the seriousness of this potentially devastating invasion upon our lives, home and family,” Allen said.
It wasn't until Ray and his wife spoke out about the lack of the police department doing anything were charges decided to be brought up. Now the eight teens are facing misdemeanor trespassing charges. The Allens also have decided to press criminal charges. They made a visit to the state attorney’s office yesterday and have provided statements regarding the incident.
Had Shannon busted a cap in one of them, best believe she would be facing some type of criminal charges right now....
Jennifer Hudson's half-brother Stephen Angelo Simpson was arrested yesterday for repeatedly stabbing the boyfriend of his estranged wife. More inside....
There's more trouble in Jennifer Hudson's extended family. The Oscar-winner's half brother Stephen Angelo Simpson (through her father Samuel Simpson) was arrested in Michigan yesterday after he burst into the apartment of his estranged wife and repeatedly stabbed her current boyfriend in the face.
According to Van Buren County's local CBS affiliate WWMT, neighbor Torrey Hunt, said that the couple ran to his home for help around 3 a.m.
"He said someone knocked on the door, he thought he was knocking on the door for somebody, and he started getting stabbed up. I open the door and see blood everywhere. He was stabbed in his chin and his chest, he had puncture wounds in his chest and his arms and stuff." Once taken to the hospital, he received dozens of stitches and was released.
Detective Adam DeBoer went on to tell WWMT that during Stephen's attack on her boyfriend, the wife "locked herself in the bathroom until he left." He added, "It appears to be an ongoing feud over a woman."
Jen's brother has a very sketchy past and a string of domestic violence arrests. At the time of the stabbing, he was on probation and had been jailed for assaulting his estranged wife on Super Bowl Sunday back in February. For now, he is in custody in Paw Paw, Michigan, and expected to be charged with attempted murder and first degree home invasion.
Unfortunately, the arrest of Stephen is just the latest in a string of tragic events to hit the family. In 2012, Jennifer took the stand to testify in the murder trial of William Balfour, the estranged husband of Jen's sister Julia, who was convicted of murdering her mother Darnell Donerson, brother Jason Hudson and nephew Julian King.
Neither Julia nor Jen, who's been traveling around the county to promote her upcoming cd "JHUD", have spoken publicly about the arrest.
In case you missed it....
Jennifer appeared on the TODAY show yesterday where she debuted her latest single "Dangerous" from her forthcoming "JHud" disc (Sept. 23rd).

The OMG Girlz are ready to drop the kiddie image and is now ready for a new, sexier look and sound. The group has dropped “Girlz” from their stage name and are now just OMG.
As they transform into their adult selves, as evidenced by their more revealing looks, Miss Beauty, Miss Star (Zonnique/Tiny’s daughter) and Miss Baby Doll (who are all over the age of 18 now) have some brand new “grown” music for their fans.
The girl group recorded a remake of Jagged Edge’s hit, “Girl It’s Over.” Their rendition is titled “Boy It’s Over,” which was written by JE’s lead singers Brandon and Brian Casey and produced by newcomer J. Reid. This will be the lead track from the ladies' forthcoming album, The Transformation.
They are also working closely with JE on other music projects. Nice.
