Australian rapper Iggy Azalea is reportedly dating LA Lakers star Nick Young. The couple was spotted enjoying the evening at LA nightclub, L.A. Live on Tuesday. Lakers players are very popular with the ladies thanks to the godlike status bestowed upon them as members of the NBA’s premier team.
Azalea, 23, is best known for her mixtape singles “Work” and “Bounce”. Her debut studio album The New Classic, is set for release in 2014 on Island Def Jam Records.
Prize fighter Floyd Mayweather, Jr. attended a pre-Halloween party thrown by socialite Daphne Joy, left, at the Supperclub in Los Angeles on Tuesday. Rapper 50 Cent took a plea deal in a much-publicized domestic violence case involving Daphne. He was sentenced to 3 years’ probation with 30 days’ community service. 50 Cent was charged with kicking and punching the mother-of-one and damaging property. The reason for the violence was never fully explained, but insiders whisper that Fiddy became enraged when he found out he was not the father of Daphne’s child. 50 reportedly paid generous child support and rent for a luxury condo for Daphne and her kid. Also in attendance at the party was rapper Jim Jones.
The LA Clippers have announced they will not re-sign free agent Lamar Odom to a new contract, amid rumors of drug addictions and a cheating scandal. That’s probably exactly what Odom wanted.
According to Lakers Nation blog, Odom, 33, is still holding on to the hope that his former team, the Los Angeles Lakers, will sign him to a new contract.
Odom’s life has been an emotional roller coaster ever since he was dropped by the Lakers. Odom also played briefly for the Dallas Mavericks who cut him loose after a few games in 2012. The 6′-10″ NBA forward has been living in a hotel as rumors swirl that he cheated on Khloe Kardashian with at least 2 groupies.
LeBron James celebrated his 28th birthday on December 30, and NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal gave his former teammate a late birthday gift: a hickey on his neck!
The video is all over the Internet. But I won’t post it here due to the ignorance of the video uploader.
The Miami Heat cruised to a 99-90 win over the hapless LA Lakers behind LeBron’s 39 points and 8 rebounds in last night’s game at the Staples Center in LA. The win wrapped up the Heat’s six-game road trip on Dwayne Wade’s birthday. He turned 31 Thursday.
On January 16, LeBron became the youngest NBA player to reach 20,000 points in his career in a win over the Golden State Warriors.

It was hard to ignore singer Rihanna shamelessly draping herself all over her former lover Chris Brown during the NY Knicks vs LA Lakers game at the Staples Center Tuesday. Rihanna, who was holidaying in her native Barbados with friends and family, jetted to Brown’s side on Christmas day — despite rumors that Brown hooked back up with his long-suffering girlfriend, Karrueche Tran.
It doesn’t matter how many photos Rihanna takes with Brown, everyone can see how desperate, needy and clingy she is. She knows that Brown is using her to revive his failing career but she doesn’t care, because Brown provides the vital source of Narcissistic Supply that she craves.
It’s clear that the L.A. Times wanted exactly the type of response these pics elicited from the public or they wouldn’t have gone to the trouble of Photoshopping Kobe’s pictures beyond recognition.
The stylist, one James Valeri, gamely took the heat for the insulting, unflattering photos of Kobe. But in reality, these images are not the stylist’s fault. Whoever Photoshopped the pics are to blame, not the stylist.
When a loyal reader emailed the pics to me, I initially thought it was a prank. Kobe can’t be happy with the way these pictures turned out. I doubt he will sit for another photo shoot any time soon.
Here’s what Valeri had to say about the concept and the wardrobe choices:
On the project’s concept
The concept was about shooting everything in white. That was Ruven’s idea [photographer Ruven Afanador]. But I wanted to do something more modern and less conventional and less cliched. … It’s a more modern silhouette. It’s not like, ‘Let’s just put Kobe in a pair of pants and a shirt or in a suit.’ The clothing is all layered.
On the negative reactions
The scarf picture and the hat picture were more to create an iconic image. When you do a portrait, you do think of the styling in how they’re going to be different and how they’re going to stand out. In 10 years time, or five years time, there has to be something particular or strange or different that will stand out. That image will stay in your mind. That’s how it’s going to become iconic. … A lot of people aren’t used to that, so when iconic pictures come out, they’re disturbing, insulting, fascinating, it has a strong feeling attached to it, good or bad.

Thanks to a loyal reader for sending this link to pics of Orlando Magic star Dwight “Superman” Howard’s gorgeous baby mama, Royce Reed, and their son, Braylon.
How happy are we to see that Royce is not LSLH? How often does that happen in the NBA? Praise HIM!!
Question: who is Dwight dating now?
Who’s that? Why, it’s none other than Royce Reed, former girlfriend of Magic star Dwight Howard. And the little bundle of joy in her arms? That’s Royce & Dwight’s 1-year-old son, Braylon Joshua Robert Howard.
If you recall, little Braylon was the subject of a little controversy involving Dwight. Here was the older Howard, a superstar role model & very devout Christian, spreading the word of God ‘n’ such – and he goes out and impregnates a team dancer, who ends up having Dwight’s baby out of wedlock.
But Royce is back, and ready to show Dwight what he’s been missing out on.
MORE pics after the break!
