    LOS ANGELES — Prosecutors have charged a man in connection with the theft of O.J. Simpson’s 1968 Heisman Trophy from a display case at the University of Southern California more than 20 years ago.

    Lewis Eugene Starks Jr., 56, of Apple Valley, Calif., is scheduled to be arraigned later Wednesday on one count of receiving stolen property, according to the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office.

    Starks was arrested Monday after a lengthy investigation. The trophy has been recovered.

    Prosecutors accused Starks of trying to sell the trophy late last year, even though it was known to be stolen.

    Well how many of them are there? I recalled it being purchased and destroyed. I thought how stupid. You can’t erase history. It is what it is. It happened.

  • Enoughsaid2020

    She is so beautiful!

  • Dr.Rue

    Yep I love her, and she is amazing in concert. I’ve seen most of her group perform. I’m pretty sure Jidenna is gay.

  • Glenda Nichole

    Yes! I get why Tyrese is stalking her! ?

  • Bonny

    Love the t shirt and D. Nice fine than a mug. Damn

  • hottlanta

    Are you talking about the boy in the fishnet shirt and bra on. How would you like to go and see him in the ladies rest room.

  • Bootcampgirl

    I don’t think so, this been gone 20+years…

  • jussaying

    Pretty sure it is.. when she first came out years ago and was still playing small venues, she used to wear the faux hawk thing and because she jumps around like a monkey crack howler, it would frequently come out of the twist and frizz up from the sweat from root to tip.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    That is not Nate Wonder.

  • EasyBreezy

    Morning all! This may be corny, but it drives me nuts. Why do grown men insist on putting their feet on the seat of a couch? Is it cool or something? It’s counter to my upbringing, it suggests a lack of care or concern and it’s juvenile. Again, is this the new cool? Be gentle….. thanks.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I don’t think so, hun.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Tyrese is stalking her because she is a leader of men. She’s a little tiny thing but she has a strong personality, and most people are followers who want to be led.

    I almost joined her cult until she told me I couldn’t bring my camera. Thats what snapped the spell.

  • Sexy CJ

    Lol @ no cameras allowed…..you are so right about “followers who want to be led”…..

  • A real one

    Fawk yo couch!!..(Rick James/Dave Chapelle)….I just had to when I read your comment…:)

  • Michelle

    She is a beautiful woman.
