Chanel Iman defended her new man, Davon Godchaux, after the NFL linebacker wore a flowing black pleated skirt during Paris Fashion Week.

In a since-deleted post, Chanel, 31, checked a fan for suggesting Davon, 27, was pandering to the LGBT+ community by wearing a skirt.

The Victoria's Secret Angel began dating the 6-ft-3, 311-pound New England defensive tackle after filing for divorce from NY Giants star Sterling Shepard.

Fans were heartbroken when Iman and Shepard broke up.

Iman and Shepard share two daughters, Cali Clay, 3, and 2-year-old Cassie Snow. Davon has a 6-year-old son from a previous relationship, Davon Godchaux II.

NFL 1st round draft pick Jeff Gladney and his girlfriend, Mercedes Palacios, were killed in a fiery car crash in Dallas early Monday morning.

The Arizona Cardinals cornerback was driving a white Mercedes G-Wagon with his girlfriend in the passenger seat.

Police say Gladney's car clipped the rear bumper of another vehicle and he lost control around 2:30 a.m. Monday. The SUV flipped and came to rest under the Woodall Rodgers overpass near Routh Street, according to the Star-Telegram.

Gladney and Palacios, both 25, were trapped in the overturned G-Wagon. They died in the burning wreckage.

Friends of Palacios say she posted on her social media account while she and Gladney partied in the hours before the crash.

The Cardinals released a statement saying, "We are devastated to learn of Jeff Gladney's passing. Our hearts go out to his family, friends and all who are mourning this tremendous loss."

Gladney started his career as a first round draft pick with the Minnesota Vikings. He was waived after an ex-girlfriend accused him of abusing her. He was later found innocent of the charges and was signed by the Cardinals.

Gladney leaves behind a toddler son from a previous relationship. In an Instagram post last July, he wrote: "My first born, you the one."

In another post featuring a video of his son next to a money counting machine, he wrote:

"Happy 1st birthday to the lil guy who came in and changed my life. From the first time i laid eyes on you I've been in love.

Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Henry Ruggs III has been charged with vehicular homicide and driving under the influence (DUI).

Las Vegas police responded to a report of an accident involving two vehicles at approximately 3:39 a.m. on November 2.

Responding officers observed a Chevrolet Corvette and a Toyota Rav4 that was on fire. The fire department put out the blaze and discovered a deceased victim inside the Toyota.

A preliminary investigation determined that the front of the Corvette collided into the back of the Toyota at a high rate of speed.

Ruggs, 22, the driver of the Corvette, remained at the scene and appeared to be intoxicated. He and a female passenger were transported to UMC Hospital and treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

Ruggs was charged with DUI resulting in death after a fatal car accident, police say. The victim's name is being withheld pending notification of next of kin.

According to Twitter, Ruggs was gifted the wrapped Corvette last year.

In Nevada, the sentence for DUI causing bodily harm or death is a maximum of 20 years in prison if convicted.

Ruggs' attorneys, David Chesnoff and Richard Schonfeld, told the Associated Press that the crash is still under investigation and asked "everyone to reserve judgment until all the facts are gathered."

The Raiders selected Ruggs 12th overall in the 2020 draft out of Alabama. He caught 24 passes for 469 yards and two touchdowns this season.

Clay Travis says sports media is "struggling" with the Deshaun Watson case because "It doesn't fit easy identity politics criteria."

The 25-year-old Houston Texans quarterback faces sex assault allegations from multiple massage therapists who say he solicited them for sex on social media.

The OutKick founder says there's a good reason why the media isn't all over the Watson case.

"One reason that this story is receiving almost no sports media attention is because it doesn't fit easy identity politics criteria," Clay said during his radio show OutKick the Coverage on Monday.

"Because you have women who are mostly powerless, and mostly minorities that are usually considered to be victims in cases like these. But then the person who potentially took advantage of them is black in Deshaun Watson, who is typically considered to be a victim in sports media circles too."

Travis continued:

"So what happens when two victim-laden ideologies collide? Your typically woke sports media doesn't know how to cover it because they're going to alienate one side of the equation, in the victimization pyramid, if they pick a side."

Travis compared Watson's case to former NFL quarterback Peyton Manning, who was accused of a mooning incident at the University of Tennessee -- 20 years after the fact.

"Think about the way that Peyton Manning's alleged mooning was covered by ESPN when it became a big story in wake of the Carolina Panthers losing to the Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl a few years ago. Cam Newton didn't shake hands. He stormed out of his press conference. And a result, that imbecile Shaun King, social media woke warrior, decided to go back into Peyton Manning's history and draw up 20-year-old allegations from when he was in college."

At least 14 women have come forward with allegations of sexual misconduct against Watson.

Five more women have accused the Texans star of misconduct since the first lawsuit was filed in Harris County District Court last week.

The women said the incidents occurred in January and March of this year and around July and August of last year.

The lawsuits accuse Watson of being a sexual predator who victimized women by pretending to seek massage therapy sessions.

"Watson is in the sex trade. He needs to be stopped," according to the lawsuit from the alleged Aug. 2 incident.

Watson vigorously denied any sort of misconduct. He explained that he contacted massage therapists via DMs on Instagram.com because his usual masseuse contacts were on lockdown due to the Covid.

In text messages obtained by an attorney for the plaintiffs, Watson apologized for asking a masseuse if she's "comfortable with the glute area."

It isn't every day that high school football players get invited to attend superstar NFL MVP and Heisman winner's Cam Newton's football camp.

Instead of appreciating the opportunity, one high school football player went viral for heckling the New England Patriots quarterback on Sunday.

Jseth Owens told Newton he was "about to be poor" since he's a free agent.

Newton shot back, "I'm rich!" The two went back and forth until Newton asked if the boy had a father.

"Where's your daddy at? Let me talk to your dad. Where's your dad?"

After the video went viral, several professional athletes took to social media to criticize Owens for trash talking one of NFL's greats.

Atlanta Hawks star Trae Young wrote: "Probably should ask him how to be a MVP in the league you probably wanna play in first."

"Man I wish I had NFL players at my 7 on 7. Let alone a player as elite as Cam Newton," tweeted Green Packers wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling. "Reality check, You got a guy who has reached every mile stone that we dreamed of as kids. You supposed to be picking his brain, being a sponge. Not a annoying fly that caused no damage to him."

L.A. Sparks WNBA player Chiney Ogwumike wrote: "kids. kids. kids. please put some respect on his name... Heisman winner & NFL MVP.. This is a CAM NEWTON appreciation tweet. (and btw... "I'm rich" is a flex like no other.)"

And Philadelphia Eagles player Darius Slay wrote: "It blows my mind cause im sure that kid wants to be a Heisman trophy winner or a draft pick an Cam did both!!"

Owens later apologized to Newton, his coaches and his parents for his embarrassing behavior.

A TikTok video posted by an NFL wife is going viral due to its submissive content -- considered a controversial topic in the Black community.

Chanen Raygoza, wife of New Orleans Saints wide receiver Juwan Johnson, shared a video that shows a routine day in the life of an NFL wife.

She rises at 6 a.m. very morning to make breakfast for her man. She pours sugar and syrup on his eggs because he has a sweet tooth. Then she gets busy making the bed, cleaning the shower and picking his clothes up off the floor. She also stops by the salon for eyelashes extensions "so I look pleasing to him."

Naturally, the comments section is in shambles. American women are highly critical of submissive a wife who knows her lane.

One Instagram user wrote: "these are jokes right. I keep seeing tiktoks about these white women being slaves to these black men lol."

Another IG user wrote: "she sounds like an indentured servant but no nothing is wrong with taking care of your husband and home but."

And a third wrote: "This is slavery."

Kim Zolciak says NFL players are swarming into daughter Brielle Biermann's DMs on social media. Speaking on the "HollywoodLife Podcast," Kim said her daughter's inbox is always full. Most of the messages are from horny NFL players.

Kim seems proud of the fact that NFL players might think of her 23-year-old daughter as an easy woman who gives up the goodies without hesitation.

"A lot of athletes DM Brielle," said Zolciak, 42. She noted her husband, former Atlanta Falcons defensive end Kroy Biermann, is all too aware of what the athletes want.

"Kroy's a rare athlete, you know, he definitely verbalizes what men want," she continued. "We all know, obviously, kind of what they want, but there's those few far in-between guys that definitely want a relationship and a connection."

She added: "Kroy's worked with them, and he has a lot of great friends that are athletes as well, I mean, I think everybody's different. We find it funny like, oh, this NFL player is DM-ing Brielle, and Kroy's like, 'Oh, God.'"

Brielle previously dated With Sox pitcher Michal Kopech, 24. They broke up in March 2018.

NFL wide receiver Josh Bellamy is among 57 people charged with Covid-19 relief fraud after FBI officials say he misused PPP funds to buy Gucci and other high end luxury goods.

The Paycheck Protection Program is part of the $2 trillion Cares Act, which provided $349 billion in PPP loans to struggling small businesses amid the coronavirus pandemic via the Small Business Association (SBA).

The FBI says Bellamy participated in a scheme to fleece the federal government out of $24 million in Paycheck Protection funds.

Bellamy, 31, was cut by the NY Jets 2 days ago. It isn't clear if his termination is linked to his arrest.

Prosecutors say Bellamy and his associates applied for $24 million in PPP funds for their businesses. They received $17.4 million - but neither Bellamy nor his associates used the money for their businesses.

Instead, Bellamy spent $95,000 on custom jewelry, $5,381 at Gucci and $2,014 at Dior. He also dropped more than $62,000 during a recent trip to the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, TMZ reported.

Authorities say Bellamy recruited others to apply for giant loans using false information -- then took kickbacks from each borrower.

Bellamy owns Drip Entertainment - an events promotion company - that hasn't been active since 2019.

Bank records show Bellamy withdrew large amounts of cash - around $302,000 between May and July 2020.

If convicted on all charges, Bellamy faces decades in prison.

George's death comes after his twin brother Josh committed suicide last Christmas. George and Josh played football for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. They also excelled at track & field.

Josh was reportedly depressed after their mother died from complications of Crohn's disease. She was also diagnosed with Schizophrenia.

In an open letter written in October and published by The Unsealed, George opened up about his struggles grieving the loss of his mother and his twin brother.

Titled "How I Turned My Losses Into Lessons", George wrote that his brother felt guilty over their mom's death.

George said he was hospitalized on a mental ward for self-harm after his brother died.

"That's the moment I felt like I lost everything. That's the moment I can't describe," he wrote. "I never want you to feel his pain or my pain."

George said his 2-year-old daughter motivated him and gave him the will to live.

"I knew I had to find a way to keep going and be a role model for her," he wrote. "Without my daughter, I don't know where I would be right now. She gave me that second wind of motivation."
