Rumors are swirling that there's more than basketball going on between players inside the NBA's "bubble" facility at Disney World in Orlando, Florida.

The bubble facility was built Disney World to house NBA teams amid the fading coronavirus pandemic. NBA players were cooped up together inside the bubble for two months before their wives and significant others were allowed in to be with them.

Now there are rumors that some of the players choose not to wait for their wives and girlfriends for a little satisfaction at night.

Social isolation among men in the NBA bubble is not much different from social isolation experienced by male inmates in prisons and jails.

There is a high degree of tendency towards consensual sex among men in periods of isolation away from women.

A study on male homosexuality in prison suggests that a majority of the men don't consider themselves to be homosexual.

According to a recent paper on the subject, "various environmental, biological, psychological, and sociological factors influence sexuality in society, and these factors are further complicated by the experience of [isolation]."

Kim Kardashian is using her considerable political connections to help free incarcerated rapper C-Murder, real name Corey Miller.

After new evidence allegedly came to light, the reality TV star and lawyer-in-training Kim, 39, has turned her attention to freeing the 49-year-old who is best known as the love of singer Monica's life.

According to insiders, Monica reached out to Kim via private message on Twitter and pleaded with her to help free her man.

C-Murder is pictured in 2006 with a former girlfriend in his native New Orleans.

The former rapper, brother of rap mogul Master P, was convicted in 2009 of the shooting of 16-year-old fan Steve Thomas at a nightclub. He maintained his innocence but was found guilty and sentenced to life in prison.

Miller was released from prison on house arrest in 2003 after Judge Martha Sassone granted a new trial based on the claim that prosecutors withheld key information.

But Judge Sassone lost her 2008 bid for re-election to Judge Ellen Kovach, who reviewed a prosecutor’s request to send Miller back to jail.

In 2009, while still on house arrest, Miller was convicted of second-degree murder and sentence to life in prison.

Two witnesses have since recanted their testimony, saying their witness statements were coerced by investigators.

"The jury convicted Corey 10-2 and he was sentenced to life in prison. If his trial was today, the jury would have had to be unanimous for him to be convicted," Kim tweeted on Sunday.

"Since his trial, witnesses have recanted, new evidence of his potential innocence has come to light, and there are claims of jurors being pressured into voting to convict," Kim tweeted. "True justice for the young man requires that the person who actually killed him be held responsible and that Corey Miller be returned home to his kids."

She added that she's teaming up with Monica, who previously dated Miller, in a bid to prove his innocence.

"Corey deserves to come home to his girls and be the father they need, be the artist & leader he's always been as well as spread hope to those who have also experienced this," Monica said in a post on her Instagram page.

Monica, 39, has a history of failed relationships with emotionally unavailable men. She shares a daughter with ex-NBA star Shannon Brown (pictured) and 2 sons with rap producer Rocko Da Don.

Kim has actively advocated for criminal justice reform in the U.S. She successfully lobbied President Donald Trump to pardon grandmother Alice Marie Johnson, who was serving a life sentence without parole for a non-violent drug offense.

A Maryland man who was released from a Virginia prison during a coronavirus outbreak was arrested for killing his rape victim.

Ibrahim Bouaichi, who was previously jailed on rape charges, was arrested for murder in the death of Karla Dominguez, of Alexandria, Va.

Bouaichi, 33, was released from jail in April due to an outbreak of the coronavirus, police say. He is currently in a hospital in grave condition from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Bouaichi was initially arrested in Virginia in October 2019 on charges of rape, sodomy, strangulation, abduction and burglary. Dominguez testified against Bouaichi at a preliminary hearing last December.

Bouaichi was held without bond until he was released from jail in April. His rape trial, which was scheduled for March 30, was postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Bouaichi's lawyers said in their motion for bond that "social distancing and proper disinfecting measures are impossible while incarcerated."

His attorneys also worried that visiting their client in jail would expose themselves to "contaminated air and surfaces."

Prosecutors objected to his release from jail, but the judge overruled their objections and released Bouaichi on $25,000 bond, with stipulations that he only leave his Maryland home for meetings with "lawyers or pretrial services officials."

Bouaichi broke the terms of his pre-trial release when he was spotted at a Wendy's drive-thru in his hometown of Greenbelt, Md., according to the Washington Post.

He resisted arrest and rammed a cop car with his vehicle, the Post reported. He was hit with additional charges of assault with a deadly weapon and traffic violations.

He was released from jail on May 11, as authorities were unaware of his rape case in Virginia.

Police say Bouaichi returned to Alexandria, Va. on July 29 and fatally shot Dominguez outside her apartment.

After police appealed to the public for help locating Bouaichi, he was spotted on Wednesday, Aug. 5, and led federal marshals and Alexandria police on a high-speed chase. The chase ended when Bouaichi crashed, authorities said.

Bouaichi shot himself as police approached his car to arrest him.

The judge who released Bouaichi from jail in April retired from the bench in June.

Patrick Jones served nearly half of a 30-year term for a non-violent drug conviction. He wrote a heartbreaking letter to a judge pleading with him to let him out so he could spend time with his wayward 16-year-old son.

Jones was sentenced to serve his time at the Federal Correctional Institute in Oakdale, Louisiana when his son was a baby.

Jones begged for a second chance to prove to the teenager and to society that he was more than just a number. "It is just a number to be forgotten in time," Jones wrote in a letter dated October 15.

The 49-year-old described himself as a "very good person. Caring, hardworking, free and clean of drugs and a lot smarter now, with a balanced outlook on life."

Just two days before Jones died of a reported coronavirus-related illness, Attorney General William Barr wrote a letter to the Federal Bureau of Prisons' Director Michael Carvajal instructing him to transfer non-violent, at-risk inmates to home confinement.

Prison reform activists say Jones's plea was ignored because he is Black.

Similar requests for compassionate release were made by other Black inmates and detainees, including singer R. Kelly and rapper YNW Melly, who claims he is dying from coronavirus in a Florida jail where he is awaiting trial on double murder charges.

Both Kelly and Melly's requests were denied.

On Monday, the American Civil Liberties Union filed a class-action lawsuit on behalf of Jones and other non-violent inmates who died in prison during the coronavirus outbreak.

"There is no time to spare," says the lawsuit.

Tyler Perry's family members are mourning the death of his nephew, who hanged himself in his prison cell on Tuesday night.

The family is demanding answers after the actor and director's nephew, Gavin Porter, committed suicide at a prison facility near St. Helena Parish in Louisiana.

Prison officials insist the 26-year-old inmate hanged himself in his cell, according to TMZ, but Perry's sister, who is the dead man's mom, isn't convinced he took his own life.

Sources tell TMZ Porter was placed in solitary confinement after fighting with another inmate over the weekend.

Gavin was arrested for shooting and killing his biological father in 2016. He pleaded no contest to manslaughter and was sentenced to 20 years.

Perry has yet to comment on the family tragedy.

Illinois Dept. of Corrections

A male inmate who claimed to be a female was accused of rape after he transferred to a women's prison and sexually assaulted a bio female inmate.

Janiah Monroe, who was born Andre Patterson and is listed as Andre Patterson by the Illinois Dept. of Corrections, was convicted of killing two people in 2005.

Patterson was charged as an adult and transferred from a juvenile facility to the Cook County Jail, where he promptly strangled his cellmate.

Prison records shows he is serving time for 11 felonies, including second degree murder, attempted murder, aggravated battery, three counts of aggravated battery against a police officer, 2 counts of aggravated arson, and more.

Despite his history of violence, the 30-year-old was transferred to Logan Correctional Center from a men's prison on the orders of U.S. District Court Judge Nancy Rosenstengel -- an Obama appointee, who ordered the Department of Corrections to give transgender inmates hormones and stop making housing assignments based on genitals or physical appearance.

Shortly after his arrival at the women's prison in Lincoln, a Jane Doe filed a complaint, alleging that Patterson raped her and that she was wrongly punished when she complained.

The female inmate said Patterson was housed in her cell, where he "easily overpowered" her and sexually assaulted her in June 2019.

Other women at the facility filed complaints against Patterson under the Prison Rape Elimination Act. He also threatened staff and inmates.

Patterson reportedly stopped taking female hormones after the transfer to the women's prison.

Corrections officers decided to transfer Patterson back to a men's prison in June. But the governor's office reportedly stepped in and overruled the transfer back to the men's prison in Pontiac.

The governor's office didn't respond to an email from Illinois Times asking for comment.

The female inmate has since filed a lawsuit against the Illinois Department of Corrections.

Patterson is being housed in segregation at the female prison for his own safety. He is scheduled for parole in 2051.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced a new policy that will house male transgender criminals in jails that align with the gender they claim to be. That means violent male criminals will now be housed with vulnerable women in NYC jails.

All a male criminal has to say be be housed with women is he has a “female gender identity.”
