In LGBT news, WNBA players Brittney Griner, right, and Glory Johnson are tying the knot — together.
The ladies announced their engagement on their social media accounts Friday. Brittney posted an image of herself getting down on one knee and presenting a diamond ring to Glory.
Every day is Father’s Day for rapper/actor Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, who has 2 daughters. On Saturday night, Luda and his eldest daughter Karma Bridges attended the WNBA Atlanta Dream’s “Dads & Daughters Night” at Philips Arena in Atlanta. Celebrity guests — which included DTP Records founder Chaka Zulu and VH1 reality star Chanita Foster — were on hand to watch the Dream crush the Chicago Sky by a final score of 97-59.
Sorry ladies, WNBA star and former Baylor U. standout Brittney Griner is off the market.
Griner, 23, posted romantic vacation photos of herself and her girlfriend in China on social media this week. The 6′ 8″ center who currently plays for the Phoenix Mercury, racked up dozens of awards and accolades as a high school and college hoop star. She also dunked the basketball several times during her collegiate career. Griner, who wears a size 17 men’s shoe, came out publicly as a lesbian in an interview with SI.com last year. Her announcement surprised no one.
R&B Diva Keyshia Cole was spotted leaving Bootsy Bellows in Hollywood, California on Tuesday. The 32-year-old singer was carrying a bouquet of roses. There are rumors that Keyshia is dating local party promoter Mr. Ruggs. People forget that Keyshia is still married to her husband, NBA star Daniel “Booby” Gibson, with whom she has a son. Keyshia is a good woman who would never violate her marital vows. And besides that, Mr. Ruggs has a reputation for being an international playboy. Keyshia doesn’t strike me as the desperate type who thinks she can change a known playa. How do these rumors get started?

Michael Jordan’s daughter Jasmine Jordan is a practicing lesbian. Jordan outed herself on Instagram earlier this week with a series of photos of herself cuddling up to her girlfriend, former Syracuse guard Carmen Tyson-Thomas. The body language in the photos says everything we need to know.
In a very telling post on Instagram, Jasmine wrote: “That little closet is holding me back”.
A WNBA player who came out against same-sex marriage yesterday was attacked and dragged on Twitter for her beliefs.
Sophia Young, 29, who plays for the San Antonio Silver Stars, tweeted a photo of herself holding up a placard that read “Vote No” outside the San Antonio City Hall, where hundreds of people prayed against a proposed LGBT anti-discrimination bill. The devout Christian mistook the anti-discrimination legislation for a bill legalizing same-sex marriage.
Instead of gently correcting her, Twitter users came for her throat with the same hatred and vitriol that they despise.
One Twitter user, @ChristopherFTL, tweeted “Bitch, are you really that dumb? Your mama must’ve been hitting the crack pipe while pregnant with your ugly ass.”
Does Beyonce know about this bish? While Beyonce is busy touring and earning money to support her daughter, her husband, aging rapper Jay Z is busy entertaining a youngster who could be his daughter. Jay Z partied with WNBA player Skylar Diggins at his 40/40 Sports Club in NYC on Thursday, May 30. As you know, Jay Z gifted Skylar with a $35K Mercedes Benz last week. This is exactly how Jay Z wooed a young Beyonce. Rumor has it that Jay Z likes them young.
