McKayla Maroney: Leaked nude photo is fake

McKayla Maroney

McKayla Maroney responded to the alleged nude photos of her that were leaked online Sunday and called them fake.

Here’s what Maroney tweeted Monday morning about the photos:

Three total alleged photos of the Olympic gymnast made it online from what we could tell. The alleged topless one appeared to be a fake/Photoshop job like she says. The two other photos — one of which is pretty revealing but not nude — appeared to be real.

Still, with nobody able to really prove or disprove the authenticity of the pictures, might as well just claim they are fake.

So far that makes Maroney and Victoria Justice saying their photos were not real, while Jennifer Lawrence and Mary Elizabeth Winstead say theirs are real. It honestly look like the alleged “nude” photos of Maroney and Justice were fakes, while the revealing/semi-clothed/non-nude photos of them are real.

Floyd Mayweather’s baby mamas Melissia Brim and Josie Harris fight (Video)

On Sunday we told you about Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s baby mamas getting into a fight with one another over Instagram. Now we can present video the two of them going at it during a boxing event at The Palms in Las Vegas Saturday night.

[Previously: Read about the Instagram fight between Mayweather's baby mamas]

Floyd MayweatherBoxing Scene shared this video Sunday and said it was of Mayweather in a “minor confrontation” with a woman at The Palms during a boxing card put on by Mayweather’s “The Money Team.” We’re pretty confident Boxing Scene has the story wrong, because the video appears to show Floyd’s baby mama Melissia Brim yelling at someone behind Floyd (who looks like the other baby mama — Josie Harris) before being escorted out by security.

The woman getting kicked out is definitely Brim — she shared photos on Instagram Saturday of herself wearing the exact same clothes:

Brim appears to be yelling at a woman in sunglasses seated close to Floyd. The woman in sunglasses looks a lot like Harris. It seems like Floyd was actually trying to play peacemaker between them. The confrontation between the women also explains the Instagram drama, too.

Mayweather keeps both his baby mamas involved in his life because he maintains relationships with all of his children. He’s also been known to maintain sexual relationships with the baby mamas.

Floyd has three children with Harris and one with Brim. He would be wise to keep the two baby mamas apart in the future, though he’s never been known to maintain a conventional structure to his personal life.

Kate Upton and Justin Verlander nude photos leaked

Kate Upton Justin Verlander

Alleged nude photos of Kate Upton and boyfriend Justin Verlander were leaked online Sunday as part of a massive celebrity photo leak.

The alleged nude photos show the Detroit Tigers ace and supermodel girlfriend naked in a bathroom standing side-by-side in profile with the mirror. Upton, who has twice appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit edition, is seen holding up a cell phone which she used to snap the pictures. Verlander’s bare bottom is visible in both photos, while Upton’s is visible in one and covered by Verlander’s hands in the other.

Upton and Verlander first met while shooting a commercial for MLB 2K12 in 2012 and began dating soon thereafter. The two refused to confirm their relationship in 2012, and it seems like they broke up at some point later in the year or in early 2013. But the two got back together and began making numerous public appearances together at the beginning of the year. Upton has also gone to watch many of Verlander’s games this season.

Neither Upton nor Verlander have addressed the nude photos. Upton did not tweet at all on Sunday, while Verlander has not tweeted since last week. Upton stated in a recent interview that she would not get naked because of the negative backlash from blogs and social media.

Numerous celebrities have been victims of the massive leak, with some confirming the authenticity of the photos and others saying they are fake.

According to BuzzFeed, the photos appear to have originated on a 4chan forum where they were posted by an anonymous user. The user claimed to have obtained the photos through an iCloud leak and was offering to sell them for bitcoins. A master list posted by the anonymous user indicated they had photos and/or videos of around 60 celebrities.

The most prominent target of the leak was Oscar Award-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence, who had several nude photos hit the web. Her representatives confirmed the authenticity of the photos and threatened to prosecute anyone who posted or spread the photos.

Other celebrities allegedly victimized by the leak include Kirsten Dunst, Teresa Palmer, Becca Tobin, Jessica Brown Findlay, Krysten Ritter, Lea Michele, Ariana Grande, Brie Larson, Ali Michael, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Victoria Justice. Athletes McKayla Maroney and Hope Solo were also alleged victims of the leak.

Justice claimed the pictures of her were fake:

Winstead confirmed the authenticity of the photos while lashing out at the hacker and those who viewed her photos:

Ronda Rousey to fight Cat Zingano or Bethe Correia next?

Ronda Rousey

UFC boss Dana White is still angling for Ronda Rousey to face Gina Carano next, but another candidate has entered the mix for a shot at the champion.

Bethe Correia beat Rousey’s buddy Shayna Baszler convincingly at UFC 177 on Saturday night in Sacramento and called out Rousey in her post-fight interview.

“I want to have a shot at Ronda at some point,” Correia said through an interpreter after the fight, according to the LA Times.

Rousey was fired up after hearing that Correia wants a piece of her. She immediately texted White.

“As soon as [Correia] started talking, Ronda texted me and said, ‘I want that fight. I want it before somebody else beats her,’ ” White said. “I said, ‘Calm down lady.’ ”

[Also see: Rousey wanted by WWE?]

Correia is now 9-0 (3-0 in the UFC) and is on the short list of candidates to fight Rousey. White is still hoping to sign Carano to the organization and have her fight Rousey next. He spoke with the media about his attempts to sign the fighter-turned-actress.

“It’s still complicated … but we’re so close. There’s like a couple of minor issues and then we’ll be done,” said White.

When asked if Carano would be signed by the end of the year, White answered confidently, saying, “Oh yeah.”

[Related: Rousey says Carano is worst style matchup for her]

If the UFC isn’t able to sign Carano, White says Cat Zingano would be next for Rousey. Zingano beat Miesha Tate in April, 2013 to earn a shot at Rousey. However, Zingano hurt her knee and needed surgery, so Tate replaced her and lost to Rousey for the second time. Zingano (8-0) is still looking for her first shot at Rousey.

But White says Correia is in the mix, especially after what she did on Saturday.

“I don’t think Bethe moves up because of the rivalry; I think Bethe moves up because of what she did tonight,” White said via MMA Junkie. “That was crazy. The punches she hit (Baszler) with, I haven’t seen anything like that since (Phil) Baroni (versus) (Dave) Menne. She looked good tonight. That’s what’s going to get her a fight with Rousey.”

Below are some video highlights from Correia’s win:

McKayla Maroney, Hope Solo pictures leaked

McKayla Maroney not impressed

Nude photos of a number of celebrities were leaked onto the web Sunday causing a mass hysteria for obvious reasons. The nude pictures of Jennifer Lawrence and Victoria Justice captured mostly everyone’s attention — no surprise.

The Lawrence nude selfies look like ones she took using her phone. Same deal with Justice, though she at least was smart enough to cover up in the pics (and she denied on Twitter that the pics were real). Lawrence confirmed the photos were of her and her attorneys are acting aggressively.

Kirsten Dunst, Teresa Palmer, Becca Tobin, Jessica Brown Findlay, Kristen Ritter and Mary Elizabeth Winstead were other actresses/models who had photos leaked.

Two notable athletes were also part of the group: Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney and soccer goalie Hope Solo.

Alleged nude photos of Justin Verlander and girlfriend Kate Upton also were leaked.

Maroney later tweeted that the photos of her were fake:

Rajon Rondo reportedly told Celtics he wants to be traded

Rajon RondoRajon Rondo has been mentioned in trade rumors for the past few years, and it looks like that is for good reason: he wants out of Boston.

ESPN Boston reporter Jackie MacMullan, who is a regular panelist on ESPN talk show “Around the Horn,” said in a behind-the-scenes conversation recorded by the show last week that Rondo has told the Celtics he wants out.

The problem, as MacMullan says, is that the Celtics would not be able to get good value for him in return. She mentions the Kings as a possible trade partner, but says Rondo told Sacramento he would never re-sign with them. They also mention the Knicks, but New York doesn’t have much to offer.

Rondo is set to earn $12.9 million next season and will be a free agent after that. In an interview with The Boston Globe back in July, Rondo indicated he was looking forward to exploring free agency.

“It just depends,” Rondo said about his free agency plans. “I don’t know if I’m going to do 10 teams. I may do a lot. I don’t know. It’s kind of like college all over again, with recruiting, only times 50 because they have a ton of money to throw at the guys and they don’t have any restrictions on what they can do. No [NCAA] rules.

It might just make sense for the Celtics to trade him rather than lose him in free agency.

Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union wedding photos

Dwyane Wade Gabrielle Union family

Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union got married on Saturday night in Miami in front of many fellow celebrities. The wedding took place at Chateau Artisan castle in Miami, a day after the rehearsal dinner was held at Prime 112 steakhouse.

You may recall all the fuss about privacy at the wedding ahead of time.

Guests were forced to sign confidentiality agreements saying they would not take photos at the wedding or anything else of the like. In fact, guests were not allowed to bring their cell phones to the event. But that doesn’t mean we didn’t get some tastes of how things were; many guests shared pre-wedding pictures on social media.

Here are Chris Bosh and wife Adrienne:
