Kobe Bryant Sued by Prostitute Selina Miller for Not Marrying Her. Seriously.

Every once in a while we come across lawsuits so outrageous we have to post them for the pure entertainment value. It’s not that we think that this is legitimate, or that we really care if it is. If Kobe is guilty of not giving a prostitute a ring as promised it matters little to us. But if she’s going to sue him over it, then we’re going to have a laugh.

Prostitute Selina Miller filed a lawsuit against Kobe Bryant last week saying he breached a marriage proposal to her, according to OC Weekly via Deadspin. From her suit:

“He likes playing games with women more than people know,” said Miller. “I’m upset because he promised me a ring [during one visit], and then some other people influenced him, and I didn’t get it. He thinks he can stop by my house any time he wants to. There are other women, too. One of them got a ring.”

If Kobe has visited her it hardly matters to me. That’s none of my business and I really don’t care. But how funny is it that someone is suing him for allegedly backing out on a promise to get her a ring? Who knows if that’s true, but who sues over something like that? You figure someone would have something better to do, but I guess business must be so bad for Miller that this is her way of trying to get money. We’ve come across many frivolous lawsuits, but this may top them all. Pathetic.

Tony Parker’s New Girlfriend is French Beauty Queen Barbara Morel

The French press says Spurs point guard Tony Parker has a new girlfriend, and it’s beauty queen Barbara Morel. The first reports about Parker’s new girl emerged three weeks ago, but I didn’t see it until Spurs Nation reported it (via IamaGM.com).

According to their information, Morel is a 20-year-old girl who won Miss Nationale in France. She is also a trade and commerce student in Saint-Lambesc, Bouches du Rhône. The youth of Morel should be a nice change from Parker’s previous wife, Eva Longoria.

If you recall, Parker and ex-wife Eva Longoria divorced in November. Eva was suspicious about Tony’s relationship with Brent Barry’s ex, and Tony was suspicious of Eva and Lance Armstrong.

Given that Tony’s play seemed to improve after he broke up with Longoria, we can only imagine what sort of wonders Morel can work on his game. Check out some pics of Morel to see what we mean.

Frank Lampard’s ex Elen Rivas Has Crush on Rafael Nadal

Elen Rivas is a Spanish model and the former fiance of Chelsea midfielder, Frank Lampard. The couple has two children together but they split in 2008, and Frank is now engaged to Christine Bleakley. Don’t worry about Elen though, she’s been messing with Peter Andre but actually has her sights set on someone else: tennis player Rafael Nadal.

Rivas recently divulged her crush on the Spanish tennis star, telling The Daily Star “There is only one man I have a crush on and that is Rafa Nadal. He is a fiery Spanish man with huge muscles. I’m going to Wimbledon to see him play and maybe I’ll get to meet him. He’s only 25 though, probably too young for me.”

Rivas is 36 years old, so the 11 year disparity may be too great. Additionally, Nadal is said to be dating Xisca Perello who is 23 years old, but if he ever grew curious, you could figure Rivas would be high on his list.

Shaq Allegedly Linked to Gang Members Kidnap of Robert Ross over Sex Tape

Shaq is in the middle of possibly his worst scandal yet, one that alleges he had seven gang members kidnap another man, beat him up, and take an incriminating sex tape from him. If I had known about this story two weeks ago, it easily would have made Shaq’s Top 10 worst moments, but it did not come out until now. Here are the details of the allegations according to TMZ:

According to the police report, the 7 gang members met up with [Robert] Ross at a convenience store — Pink Dot — on the Sunset Strip. The men allegedly surrounded Ross’ Rolls Royce Phantom with guns drawn, jumped into Ross’ car and ordered him to drive to [gang member Ladell] Rowles’ house in South Central L.A.

Once there, Rowles allegedly pistol whipped Ross and demanded that he turn over the sex tape. Ross said he would get the tape and bring it back to them. The 7 men then allegedly took Ross’ Rolex, diamond chain and earrings, along with $15,000 in cash — then let Ross go.

The seven men have been arrested and are being held in jail on charges of robbery and kidnapping. Now if you’re wondering about a motive, TMZ explains it. Apparently Shaq and Ross were supposed to have a deal where Ross would get a finders fee for bringing artists to Shaq’s musical label. Ross apparently delivered some talent but never got the fee he was promised. Ross supposedly threatened Shaq with a security tape that showed him having sex with different women (while Shaq was married to Shaunie O’Neal prior to their divorce). There supposedly was even more bad blood because Shaunie and Robert Ross may have had a relationship after she and Shaq separated.

Like I’ve said, though Shaq comes across as a fun-loving big guy, he has an ugly side most people don’t realize.

Rashard Lewis Denies Absurd Rumor He Slept with LeBron James’ Girlfriend

An absurd rumor was started by a gossip website Thursday and it spread across the internet. The rumor, which had extremely shaky details, said that Wizards forward Rashard Lewis had slept with LeBron James’ girlfriend, Savannah Brinson, and that’s the reason LeBron had been playing poorly in the Finals. The report surfaced the day after Stephen A. Smith said LeBron was going through personal issues that affected his play in Game 4 of the Finals, leading people to connect the two stories. I said they were separate, unrelated issues, but it didn’t matter to the folks hungry to jump on any possible anti-LeBron news. The result was Rashard Lewis going on a radio station in Houston to quash the rumor:

People can deny a story and still have it turn out to be true, but this felt differently. Two items convince me what Rashard says is true: he’s never met Savannah, and he says he talked to LeBron’s circle about the rumor. That was enough to convince me. Now the only other question I have is why Rashard Lewis says the NBA is a tight sorority. Bro, I know you skipped college and went straight to the NBA, but you gotta know better than that. That’s turrible.

Meanwhile, we have yet to hear a denial from Delonte West.

Kim Kardashian-Bret Lockett Cheating Story Just Buzz for New Season of Show

One of the hottest stories Wednesday was the report from In Touch Weekly that Kim Kardashian was caught cheating on fiance Kris Humphries. This is the exact sort of “bombshell” intended to make teenyboppers and housemoms gasp incredulously while running to the supermarket to pick up their copy of the fake news. In reality, the extent of Kim’s sins depends on your definition of cheating, because the report says she had phone sex and flirted with New England Patriots safety Bret Lockett over text message. Not only is it not the sort of cheating they would like you to believe, it also seems to be all-too-perfectly timed.

The newest season of Keeping up with the Kardashians premieres on Sunday. The engagement to Kris Humphries is a nice new story line for the show, but is it juicy? It’s a change, but I’m not so sure it’s titillating. Not only that, it’s also two weeks old, which might as well be 10 years ago in our ever-changing digital age. The Kardashians needed something big — something huge — an “oh my god” controversy to make everyone tune in Sunday to see what’s going on with the family. They needed just the type of story In Touch published.

When you think about it, is texting someone else that bad? I would consider it wrong, but if it’s old news, it probably already was addressed by the couple. Do you really think Wednesday was the first time Humphries heard about Bret Lockett? Of course not — we’re not that stupid.

The magazines and the entertainers work hand-in-hand; they need each other in order to survive. The celebrities crave the attention and relevance that comes with being on the cover of a magazine. The magazines and websites are dying for exclusive stories that will generate traffic and sales. As long as they get an inside scoop (like Kimmie cheating), what do they care if they’re being used to generate buzz for the show?

You really think they weren’t in on this story together?

Steve Nash was shown by the ABC cameras in attendance for Game 2 of the NBA Finals between the Heat and Mavericks Thursday. Nash was spotted along with a young woman believed to be his girlfriend, Brittany Richardson. Check it out:

Nash apparently was bombarded by text messages after ABC showed him on TV, to which he responded on twitter “How can I watch the game when I just got a thousand texts for being on tv?! Been there before people… #kindofabigdeal”

As for Richardson, well Nash and his wife divorced in November — the day after their third child was born. It’s been rumored that he and Richardson have been dating since then, and the two recently took a trip to Negril.
