The Internet couldn't get enough of Jay Z bonding with his oldest daughter at court side. At one point, she looked embarrassed and pushed his arm away as he leaned over to kiss her cheek. "Not my hair," she told him.

The 10-year-old is at that awkward stage, transitioning from tomboy to womanhood.

She wore a black biker jacket with black sweatpants and throwback Air Jordan sneakers. She accessorized with what looked like one of her mom, Beyonce's custom curly wigs, lip gloss and gold hoop earrings.

The Internet couldn't get enough of the cuteness!

"When you just casually tell THE Jay-Z to chillllllll with all that PDA. Blue been hilarious," one Twitter user wrote.

Dell, 57, responded with a scandalous court filing of his own, accusing his estranged wife of "acts of illicit sexual misconduct" with Steve Johnson, a 6-ft-6 former NFL tight end who was roommates with Dell in college.

After filing for divorce, Sonya left Dell for good and moved in with Johnson last year.

Apparently, Dell found solace in the arms of Johnson's ex-wife.

Both couples attended Game 4 in Boston, and they may attend Game 5 of the NBA Finals in Oakland, California on Monday night.

The Warriors and Celtics are even at 2 games apiece in the series.

The viral images led to more speculation that the couple's eldest son, Steph, 34, and his wife, Ayesha, 33, have an open marriage.

Rumors ran rampant in December, after popular Instagram gossip blogger Deuxmoi received a strong tip that Steph and Ayesha had an open marriage.

"Have it on good authority that this well known NBA couple aren't as faithful in love as their social media and image make them out to be! They both have side hookups and flings but keep it very private to keep up the perfect family image they show to the world. I was shocked to learn, they've been together for so long."

A furious Ayesha checked a follower who commented on the rumor.

"But yet you still want an open relationship," the follower wrote. "If I were him you woulda been sent to the streets already [sic]."

"Don't believe everything you read," Ayesha replied curtly. "Do you know how ridiculous that is? Don't disrespect my marriage like that. Please and thank you."

Steph and Ayesha Curry renewed their vows in September after 10 years of marriage.

"It's everything I've always dreamed of but didn't know could be possible in this way. A moment I will never forget," Ayesha wrote on Instagram. "I love you @stephencurry30."

They share three children, daughters Riley, 9, and Ryan, 6, and a son named Canon, 3.

Rachel Nichols has reportedly lost her coveted NBA Finals hosting gig amid ongoing racial drama at ESPN.

Nichols will not be at courtside when the Phoenix Suns face the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 1 of the Finals tonight in Phoenix.

The NBA Finals sideline gig will go to ESPN reporter Malika Andrews (pictured). Andrews checks all of the diversity boxes.

"We believe this is best decision for all concerned in order to keep the focus on the NBA Finals. Rachel will continue to host "The Jump," ESPN said in a statement on Monday.

Nichols has hosted ESPN's daily basketball show "The Jump" since 2016.

The drama ensued when Nichols was caught on a hot mic complaining about Black reporter Maria Taylor getting the 2020 NBA Finals gig.

Nichols, who is white, sought advice from Adam Mendelsohn in a secretly recorded phone call at a hotel near the NBA Bubble in Orlando in July 2020.

She accused her bosses of giving Maria Taylor the 2020 NBA Finals gig because of the color of her skin and ESPNS's "crappy" history of "diversity."

Unbeknownst to Nichols, a video camera in her hotel room was still on and recording her phone call with Mendelsohn. The recording, which was live-streamed to a server at ESPN's headquarters, soon made the rounds at ESPN.

Nichols is pictured interviewing actor Michael B. Jordan at the Staples Center on December 25, 2019 in Los Angeles.

She struggled to keep her emotions in check on "The Jump" on Monday, as she apologized profusely to Taylor and ESPN's viewers.

"So, the first thing they teach you in journalism school is don't be the story. And I don’t plan to break that rule today or distract from a fantastic Finals," Nichols said.

"But I also don't want to let this moment pass without saying how much I respect, how much I value our colleagues here at ESPN. How deeply, deeply sorry I am for disappointing those I hurt, particularly Maria Taylor, and how grateful I am to be part of this outstanding team."

Stephen Jackson deleted a video saying "F**k ESPN" and blamed the network for creating the racist drama between its top female anchors, Rachel Nichols and Maria Taylor.

A leaked phone call between Nichols and Adam Mendelsohn, an adviser to LeBron James, sparked outrage on social media.

Nichols forgot a video camera was still recording in her hotel room when she complained to Mendelsohn about ESPN giving Taylor the 2020 NBA Finals hosting gig.

Nichols suggested that ESPN favored Taylor because of the color of Taylor's skin and ESPN's "crappy" history on diversity.

"I just want them to go somewhere else — it's in my contract, by the way; this job is in my contract in writing," Nichols told Mendelsohn.

Jackson, a retired NBA star, defended Nichols on social media after speaking with her by phone.

He initially posted a video saying "F**k ESPN" and called himself "Team Maria."
 

Jackson deleted the video and shared another video in which he defended Nichols. He said ESPN gave Taylor a "sympathy job" due to the protests surrounding the death of George Floyd.

"We all ramble and we say things when we're frustrated, and Rachel did deserve that job, it's just plain and simple, I've talked to Rachel and I know a lot of things she was saying out of frustrations because ESPN put her in a bad position and they even put Maria in a bad position by trying to give Maria a sympathy job, they were trying to make themselves look good because of the Black lives Matter and the George Floyd stuff was going on. So ESPN tried to make themselves look good by taking the job from Rachel that she had already had - that they already told her she had... ESPN is behind all this. It's all they fault... ESPN, y'all some suckers!"

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]."
