High school basketball star Tayshana Murphy was 18 when she was gunned down inside her apartment building in a case that shocked even the most hardened New Yorker. Murphy was one of the nation’s top girls high school basketball prospects when she was shot and killed on Sept. 11, 2011 in the Grant Harlem housing projects.
Edit: Two men, Tyshawn Brockington, 23, and Robert Cartagena were convicted of killing Murphy last year.
Michael Jordan is having a hard time dealing with the fact that his only daughter, Jasmine Jordan, might be a lesbian.
According to The National Enquirer, Jordan asked Earvin “Magic” Johnson for advice after Jasmine revealed what side of the closet door she stood on in a series of posts on Instagram.com.
Magic reportedly advised Jordan to “just love her and to let her know that she owes it to herself to be 100 percent genuine and to live her life to the fullest.”
Both sports legends have children who are homosexual. Magic’s cross dressing son, EJ Johnson, came screaming out of the closet earlier this year.
Jordan is reportedly impressed with Magic’s handling of the personal crisis that hit his family when EJ hit the streets wearing spandex and boa feathers.
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”.
I admit I didn’t know who Skylar Diggins was until rapper Lil Wayne started lusting after her on his Twitter page last year.
Instead of being totally grossed out by a gremlin lusting after her, Diggins was actually flattered by the attention.
Anyway, I had no idea how loyal (and rude) Diggins’ fans were (I didn’t even know she had fans). One irate fan was so incensed by yesterday’s post on Skylar bragging about her gift from Jay Z that she emailed me a nasty letter.
The letter tickled me because the fan assumes that I give a rat’s a** that Diggins has a new Mercedes Benz. My 2004 Jetta may not be sitting on dubs, but it’s paid for.
Read the email after the break.
To a businessman like Jay Z, gifting a Mercedes Benz to one of his employees is simply a tax write off. But to a star-struck groupie who just graduated from college, a Mercedes Benz is a pretty big deal.
Jay Z surprised former Notre Dame women’s basketball star Skylar Diggins with a Mercedes Benz C class automobile. Prices for a C class Mercedes start at $35,000.
