WEEKEND WRAP-UP! The IRS Wants Faith Evans! Who’s Headed Back To Jail? + MORE!
Hey loves! The weekend is almost over and while your favorite celebs were pretty quiet this week (it was a boxing weekend, after all), I managed to pull a few tidbits for you. Check it out!!
‘Money Team’ Does It Again
In case you fell asleep last night, Floyd Mayweather and his “Money Team” crew did it again last night as he defeated Miguel Cotto in a unanimous decision. This win is great but all people really want to know is when will he fight Manny Pacquiao. I guess it’ll be awhile before we hear anything because last night’s fight will be Floyd’s last for a few months; he’s set to start serving a three month jail sentence for domestic abuse in a few weeks.
Stop Running From Uncle Sam
Add Faith Evans to the list of celebrities Uncle Sam has tracked down. According to eurweb.com, Faith owes the government over $60,000 for failure to pay taxes in California from 2008 through 2010. What is up with these celebrities?! I’m sure they have accountants but for goodness sakes, make sure they’re handling your business efficiently. If FayeFaye doesn’t pay up, they’ll be coming after all her worldly possessions.
Iverson Not Giving Up
His dream to still play professional basketball, that is. Allen recently played in a CBA legends charity basketball game against a Chinese team and is hoping he’ll find a team to play on to continue his career. Allen is 37 years old and who knows what shape he’s in but he’s one of those people who doesn’t know what to d without something he’s known all his life. Plus, he needs to be able to afford these legal fees for this battle with estranged wife, Tawanna. You can read the full story here.
Mystikal heading back to Jail
So I guess six years locked up wasn’t enough for Mystikal. After doing time for sexual battery and extortion, Mr. Shake It Fast is heading back to jail for three months after he was arrested in February for domestic abuse. He performed his final show at the Jazz Festival in New Orleans last Thursday and added, “…Fellas if you and your girl get into it, walk away. Me? I’m gonna run.” That sounds smart. Billboard has the full article.
Amanda Bynes Needs A Driver
During the weekend wrap-up, you might find a quick story on someone you might not normally see or know about. This time, that person is actress Amanda Bynes. If you follow celebrity gossip at all, you know this young actress has been having a lot of problems with driving and being under the influence. well, it happened again. According to PEOPLE, this time Amanda sideswiped a truck…and kept on going. The driver of the truck called the police and since there was an LAPD helicopter already in the area, it – along with six police cars – were able to track her down. Police say they damage was so minor that there’s a possibility she didn’t even know she hit anyone. They let her go without charging her with anything. Someone get that baby a bus pass!
Is Roscoe’s This Good?
In WTF news of the day, Milwaukee Bucks’ Guard Brandon Jennings recently went out and got “Roscoes” tattooed on his arm along with a picture of a chicken right under the name. *slow blink* I mean…I just don’t know what to say. I’ve got nothing…and you?
