The Celtics launched an investigation in July after the woman complained that he made "unwanted comments" toward her and he was harassing her.

Speculation ran rampant as amateur sleuths on Twitter scoured the Celtics' website and LinkedIn pages in search of the unidentified female staffer.

After photos of Allison Feaster, VP of Player Development, went viral on Thursday, ESPN writer Marc J. Spears shut down the speculation in a tweet.

Finally, Celtics president Brad Stevens had enough. He called the speculation "rampant bullish-t"

"We have a lot of talented women in our organization and I thought yesterday was really hard on them," he said in a press conference on Friday. "Nobody can control Twitter speculation and rampant bulls–t. But, I do think that we as an organization have a responsibility to make sure we're there to support them now, because a lot of people were dragged unfairly into that."

He added that he thought it was important to address the rampant and incorrect speculation on Twitter.

Stevens was head coach of the Celtics before being promoted to president of basketball operations.

Johnny Depp is off the market and dating his married attorney, Joelle Rich, according to published reports.

Rich was one of the attorneys representing Depp during his 2020 libel trial in the United Kingdom.

Rich, who lives in London, represented Depp in his defamation lawsuit against The Sun for calling him a "wife-beater" in a news article.

He lost the case in November 2020, but he kept in contact with Rich, who is married with 2 kids, according to Us Weekly.

A source tells Us Weekly, Johnny and Joelle's chemistry "is off the charts" and that "it's serious between them. They are the real deal."

However, a source tells PEOPLE Depp and Rich "are dating but it's not serious."

Rich did not represent Depp in his defamation lawsuit against Amber Heard, which he won earlier this year.

Us Weekly's source said Rich was married when she first met Depp but she and her estranged husband are in the process of divorcing.

Boston Celtics head coach Ime Udoka is considering resigning amid reports that he faces a year-long suspension for cheating with a married woman.

Udoka faces disciplinary action for engaging in an intimate "improper" relationship with a married female staffer.

He was reportedly warned multiple times to end his workplace romance.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski broke the news Wednesday night, around 10:30 p.m., in a vague tweet.

About an hour before Woj tweeted his scoop, a burner account mentioned that Udoka would never be fired for "sleeping around."

The insider suggested that Udoka was carrying on with multiple women, not just one female staffer.

The tweet, posted at 9:14 p.m. EST, read: "if there's one person who will never get fired for sleeping around, it's ime udoka."

Udoka, 45, is in a longterm relationship with fiancée Nia Long, 51.

The rookie coach led the Celtics to a 51-31 record and the team's first NBA Finals since 2010.

Celtics assistant coach Joe Mazzulla will replace Udoka when training camp begins on Tuesday, Sept. 27.

Jesse Williams and his ex-wife Aryn Drake-Lee are back in court.

According to Radar Online, Jesse filed for an emergency hearing after Aryn refused to agree to let their kids visit him in New York.

The couple settled their bitter divorce back in 2019 when Jesse was pulling down millions as the star of ABC series Grey's Anatomy.

A judge eventually lowered Jesse's child support from $40,000 a month to just $7,000 a month for the couple's two children.

SL, Terma / BACKGRID

Jesse is in New York City starring in the Broadway play Take Me Out. The second run of the play begins in October.

Jesse says their two children, 8-year-old Sadie and 7-year-old Maceo, visited him multiple days a month during the play's first run.

He says Aryn is playing hard ball and said no after he requested the same visiting schedule for the next couple of months.

The actor told the judge he doesn't want to "miss a precious moment" with his minor kids.

Jesse said his girlfriend Ciarra Pardo is willing to travel with the kids from California to New York at a moment's notice.

But Aryn responded that the kids are too young to travel overnight on red-eye flights and miss days in school.

"I am not in agreement with a 7yr and 8yr old being asked to fly overnight red-eye flights on a regular basis, missing at least 2 days of school per month," she said. "This was a temporary solution given for a temporary situation the first time. This is now a request that covers 8 out of the 12 months of 2022."

Radar Online obtained text messages exchanged between the two parties from late April/ early May.

In one text, Aryn complained that Jesse left the kids with a nanny who didn't answer her FaceTime calls. She also accused Jesse of giving her the wrong number.

BACKGRID

"It is a rollercoaster of confusion, inconsistency, and disruption. And they shouldn't have to endure it. Noting that your nanny has never answered a Facetime call of mine. Though I could have the wrong number again, since you gave me the wrong number previously."

Aryn also told her ex that she "will not tolerate any more of your threats nor any more of your pressure while you fake being the victim."

"I am being harassed and bullied. I am a single mom with no family in town doing my very best to care for myself and our children while rebuilding after being hit with an abrupt 84% reduction in my child support."

SL, Terma / BACKGRID

Aryn claims she is forced to downgrade and borrow money from friends to make ends meet.

"I do not have extra money nor time to continue in this way with you, the attorneys, and everything that goes along with it. I am reorganizing and borrowing against my assets to make sure I maintain enough cash flow while I rebuild."

She also slammed Jesse for hiding his substantial assets in multiple bank accounts.

"The audacity that you have, playing victim about your last minute plane tickets, that you could have bought weeks ago btw, is insane, As per 3 of the 13 bank accounts that you turned over, you have millions of dollars in the bank, And this is without consultation on the other 10 bank accounts you didn't turn over. The way you're engaging with me is financially and emotionally abusive. And it's enough already."

August Alsina claims he was sucker punched by troubled rapper Tory Lanez at a nightclub over the weekend.

According to Instagram blogger Fee of Got City Tea, the two hip-hop artists already had beef because Tory commented on August's past affair with married actress Jada Pinkett Smith.

August seemed to confirm the rumors when he posted an image of his bloody lip on Instagram. He called Tory a "4'11 sized leprechaun".

He captioned the image:

"As I'm exiting the building after the show last night, a 4'11 sized leprechaun ran down on me w/ 8 oversized security ni--as, who I greeted each individually upon their walk up as they tried to press me. Whole time, I'm one deep, No security [sic]."

He added:

"Tory continues to ask w/ a broken ego why I didn't dap him up, I go on to tell him.. I was a fan of him and didn't understand him speaking on my business publicly In the past, because I don't know him or ever met him until last night. So when he spoke it caught me off guard because of his past actions, i assumed he didn't like me, that's all [sic]."

He continued: "There was never a 'fight'! Simply an Assault. Dude has no real friends, an is on a crash out mission [sic]."

When his followers said the first image was heavily Photoshopped, August posted a follow-up image of his alleged injury. He called the assault "a toupee'd sneak attack".

For his part, Tory denied touching August.

"Nothing happened," he told Instagram blogger DJ Akademiks on Sunday. "I don't even know what this kid is talking about."

Tory is already out on bond for shooting rapper Megan Thee Stallion in both feet.

In court papers, Erica said her marriage was "irretrievably broken," with "no hope for reconciliation."

She did not return the $500,000 that Safaree reportedly paid for her rings.

The "Love & Hip Hop" stars sold their $1.2 million marital pad near Atlanta in June, according to TMZ.

Nicki Minaj is furious over allegations that she's addicted to cocaine. The 39-year-old rapper threatened to sue Twitter users for claiming she's an addict.

If you're among those making false allegations about Nicki, you'd be wise to lawyer up.

According to Snitch, it all started when Nicki shared a video while promoting the new remix for her single "Super Freaky Girl." The remix features 5 up-and-coming female rappers, including JT, BIA, and Chicago gangbanger Katie Got Bandz.

Nicki simultaneously dissed bold name rap queens who weren't asked to be on the remix.

"It's giving coke," one fan tweeted. The hashtag #itsgivingcoke quickly began trending, setting Nicki off on a 48-hour non-stop Twitter tirade.

Fans of rap icon Lil Kim and reality star Garcelle Beauvais — both of whom were disrespected by Nicki — also dropped gems in the hashtag thread. Nicki was livid!

The Barbie rapper collected the most offensive tweets and contacted her attorney about filing defamation lawsuits against her followers.

Megan Thee Stallion checked Nicki Minaj stans after they claimed she was the "female rapper" who told Nicki to get an abortion.

Megan, 27, performed at the Rock in Rio Festival in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil over the weekend.

Nicki, 39, claims another female rapper with whom she'd collaborated on a track offered her an alcohol beverage, and when she declined — because she thought she was pregnant — the female rapper told her she could "go to the clinic."

Nicki didn't name the offender — and that's why Nicki's stans assumed the female rapper was Megan, who collaborated with Nicki on the single "Hot Girl Summer" back in 2019.

Nicki gave birth to her son, known only as Papa Bear, on September 30, 2020.

One Nicki Stan wrote: "Nicki Minaj is accusing you of encouraging abortion & child endangerment w/ alcohol. This isn't something to stay quiet on."

Megan responded: "LIE."

Nicki's other stans noted that Megan was guilty - since no one mentioned her name.

"No names were mentioned but u were first to respond?" argued a Nicki fan.

"So this person didn't mention me?" Megan wrote. "This person ... as in the person who pressed the @ button," Megan clarified. "y'all not this crazy."

"If someone @ you you can respond right or that don’t apply for every user on twitter? If someone directly @ my name ...why do they be confused when I reply lol."

Someone else mentioned that Lil Kim tagged her in her tweets all week.

Remember the days when celebrities didn't waste time going back and forth with people who weren't in their tax bracket?

Okafor is not to be confused with politician Nnamdi Okafor, the Anambra State House of Assembly majority leader, who died suddenly last month.

According to his LinkedIn page, Dawson's new man is a "Trusted philanthropic strategist and consultant" for a company in Los Angeles, California.

His job duties focuses on supporting high net worth individuals and celebrity clientele.

Megan accused Tory of shooting her in both feet after they left a party at Kylie Jenner's Calabasas mansion on July 15, 2020.

Tory was arrested on gun charges following a vehicle search that same night. He is currently out on bond and awaiting trial.

On October 8, 2020, L.A. County prosecutors charged Lanez with shooting Megan. A judge issued a protection order against Lanez and ordered him to stay at least 100 yards away from her.

A rumor is sweeping the blogs that Rihanna offered to pay ASAP Relli millions of dollars to make A$AP Rocky's assault charges go away.

PapCulture / BACKGRID

Relli told police Rocky (pictured) pointed a semi-automatic handgun at him and fired the gun in his direction in Hollywood last November. But he missed his target.

Rocky appeared in a Los Angeles courtroom last week where he pleaded not guilty to two counts of assault with a firearm.

On Monday, Aug. 15, the Los Angeles district attorney charged Rocky with felony assault with a firearm.

PapCulture / BACKGRID

Now there are reports that Rihanna is trying to save her baby daddy from going to prison by paying off Relli.

But even if Relli dropped the charges (in exchange for cash), the prosecutor can still try A$AP Rocky in court if there are other witnesses to the crime.

Paying off the accuser only works in the movies.

And if word gets to the prosecutor that Relli accepted a payoff in exchange for his silence, Relli could face charges himself.

Don't believe everything you read on the Internet.

Businessman Martell Holt is a single father of five who has multiple women fighting over him, including RHOA cast member Shereé Whitfield.

Martell, 40, is a real estate tycoon who owns his own wine brand. He is best known for his appearance on the Love & Marriage: Huntsville reality series on the OWN network.

Martell was born on January 4, 1982, making him a Capricorn. He is a native of Huntsville, Alabama, and earned a Bachelor of Science in Education degree from Alabama A&M University in 2008.

He taught at Sparkman Middle School for two years before leaving to focus on his business empire.

Martell shares four children - son Martell II, and daughters Maliah, Mariah, and Malani, with his ex-wife Melody Holt.

He also fathered a toddler son, Knox, a.k.a. Maverick, during an extramarital affair with entrepreneur Arionne Curry.

Martell is an excellent father to his five children, who are featured prominently on his Instagram page.

Rumors swirled when Shereé Whitfield claimed she is dating Holt and has introduced him to her friends and family as her man. She even claimed they are moving in together.
 

 
But Martell's mistress and baby mama, Arionne, insists Shereé is only using Martell for a storyline on RHOA.

She posted an email exchange on social media, calling Martell a "narcissist" and a "liar" and she hopes his three daughters don't grow up to run into a man like their father.

"F*** you Martell Holt you made me like this. It took 2 seasons of you discussing me every episode to make her famous and she left you to even say something. I was s0000000 dumb! I hope your 3 daughters never run into a man like you! And loyal to you, you been using me! My heart hurts for you and you still don’t get it! You could’ve moved on and kept it real but you lied about it! Stop placing blame on me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

In another email, the 31-year-old boutique owner blasts her ex for dating "an old b****," presumably she's referring to 52-year-old Shereé, who is divorced from ex-NFL player Bob Whitfield.

In an interview with disgraced vlogger Tasha K, Arionne said Martell has a way with women that melts her heart.

I'll agree that Martell isn't your typical Morning Wood. As you can see, he carries a lot of baggage and female drama with him.

Still, he is a good catch if you're the adventurous type who doesn't mind the drama and extra baggage.
