Lil Wayne Happy LeBron James Finally Acknowledged Him at Miami Heat Game

A few weeks ago we passed along word that rapper Lil’ Wayne was unhappy LeBron James and Dwyane Wade hadn’t acknowledged him at Miami Heat games. Weezy is such a dedicated fan that one of his first moves after being released from prison was to watch a Heat-Hornets game, but he was hurt the stars didn’t so much as throw a glance in his direction.

Well after complaining to Rolling Stone in an interview, Lil’ Wayne finally got his wish.

LeBron James apparently gave Weezy a head nod during the Heat-Pacers game on Tuesday night. Asked after the game if their beef was squashed, LeBron played coy saying “I don’t know. That’s a question you gotta ask him. We just, for all the fans that come watch us play… we just try to do our job and win ball games.”

Dwyane Wade was apparently surprised to hear that LeBron had acknowledged the rapper, asking LeBron “you did?” when he heard about the incident after the game. As for Lil Wayne’, he told NBC Miami he was satisfied with the nod.

And just like that, the world’s dumbest controversy came to an end.

Picture: Gilbert Arenas Served Court Papers at Halftime, Laura Govan Lying

Gilbert Arenas‘ on-again, off-again relationship with ex-fiance Laura Govan thankfully is finally over. The two have fought many times (including allegations she cheated with Shaq!) in the past yet they’ve still had several children together and even planned to get married. Now the relationship has come to an end, and Govan is playing dirty.

Govan hired a powerful LA-based attorney who “accidentally” filed court documents in with other paperwork so that it would be available publicly, and the documents miraculously ended up in the hands of the Washington Post. There have been numerous accusations coming from Govan intended to ruin Arenas’ character and make her look like a sympathetic figure.

She claims she was “abandoned” by Arenas and is not receiving any financial support from him. He says that’s b.s., explaining that she’s receiving $20,000 a month but wants more. He also added that the vengeful woman killed his pet sharks.

Anyway, continuing with her low, dirty methods, Govan had Arenas served with court papers at halftime of the Magic-Heat game Thursday night. Check out this picture via Mike Prada from SBN and Brian Packey on twitter:

Gil might not be the greatest person or family man as we’re coming to learn, but Govan is equally as bad and starting to look much worse. At times like this you can only feel badly for the children.

Tennis Player Jelena Jankovic at Center of Sperm Bank Controversy

Jelena Jankovic is the women’s tennis player many of you know from this peep show she put on mid-match. I have a feeling after this story you all are going to remember her for something else.

On The Go Tennis shared with us the story of Jankovic’s recent controversy. A Swiss sperm bank apparently had these pictures of Jankovic on postcards to use as an advertisement. The caption says “make a donation here.”

Jankovic says the postcards were printed without her knowledge and consent, and apparently the company that printed them has pulled the cards. Hey, just as long as they’re only using the pictures to lure customers in and not to help the sperm-generating process, I think we’ll all be fine.

Joe Smith Burned by Girlfriend for Cheating, Wife Yolanda Smith Leaves Him

Former number one overall pick Joe Smith is 35 and in his 16th season in the NBA. The veteran forward may not see much playing time these days, but he’s still big-time off of it. Or, at least he was.

Smith, like many athletes, was hooking up with a girl who was not his wife. Smith was with some actress/model wannabe named Deanna Marie, treating her to games and hanging out with her at clubs. But Deanna got ticked when she apparently found out Smith was hooking up with another girl. Shocking, right?

Upset she wasn’t the only girl on the side, Deanna decided to get back at Joe by posting pictures of herself and Joe hanging out together, knowing the pictures would spread and hurt his home life. She was right.

So Lil Wayne Is Sad LeBron James and Dwyane Wade Don’t Give Him Attention

Back in November when Chris Johnson err Lil Wayne busted out of prison, one of his first stops was a Heat-Hornets game in his hometown of New Orleans. Watching the star-studded Miami Heat has become a habit for the rapper, but not all has gone as planned for the man. Imagine spending thousands of dollars on tickets to sit front row to watch your fave NBA players ball, and they (gasp!) don’t even give you so much as a nod by the court? That’s how it is for Lil Wayne, it’s not going to fly for Weezy. He lamented the lack of attention to Rolling Stone in an interview, as I learned through Baller Status:

When Wayne sat court-side at a recent Miami Heat/New Orleans Hornets game he was upset that Lebron James and Dwyane Wade never came over to talk to him. “Them n****s never speak to a n****,” he says. “They don’t chuck me the deuce or nothing. ****a spent all that money on them ****ing tickets … Come holla at me. We sit right by them little *itch-*ss *****s. At least come ask me why I’m not rooting for you.”

And for the first time in his life, he found out what it’s like to be one of the rest of us. Sorry Weezy, can’t feel badly for you this time. Did you ever consider that this might be the reason why?

Darryl Talley Upset with Lack of Respect from Vince Young

Darryl Talley is a two-time Pro Bowl linebacker who played 14 seasons in the NFL. He was a second-round pick by the Bills out of West Virginia and was a core member of their early-90s team that went to four straight Super Bowls. He is the franchise’s all-time leading tackler, and a member of the College Football Hall of Fame. One would figure such a resume would result in respect from a fellow football player, but that’s not how Talley perceived his meeting with quarterback Vince Young.

Talley, who lives in Orlando, must have been in Miami when he ran into Young. Here’s what the former linebacker tweeted Saturday evening “Just ran into Vince Young. Had no idea who I am. Not ok.” Talley then added, “Hey young fellas. Know ur football history. It’s called respect. Also will make u a better ball player.”

Apparently Talley wasn’t only upset with the lack of respect shown to him by Young, but the lack of appreciation in a business sense. “Be respectful of those who came before you & demanded changes so u could colect the check ur getting” he later wrote on his twitter account. Word must have gotten back to Vince Young that Talley felt slighted by the former Titan, so Vince contact Talley to say he knew who he was. Apparently that upset Darryl even more because if Vince knew who he was, he should have acted more appropriately.

I wasn’t around for the meeting and I obviously don’t know what went down, but either way VY comes across looking badly. If he knew who Talley was and didn’t show much respect, that’s poor form, and it’s even worse if he didn’t even know who Talley was. Like I said, I don’t know what went on, but this fits pretty consistently with the character issues Young has that have been called into question.

Dustin Johnson Denies He is Dating Natalie Gulbis, Says ‘I’m a Single Guy’

Call this the Dustin Johnson/Natalie Gulbis update part three. Last weekend Gulbis was following Johnson around for the Tournament of Champions at Kapalua and according to Golf.com, confirmed she and Dustin were dating. Here was the exact excerpt from the story: “Following Johnson’s 73, Gulbis confirmed they were dating but said with a laugh, ‘I’ll let Dustin handle our PR.’ Reached Saturday evening, he declined comment.”

In our story, we noted how Johnson pulled out of this week’s Sony Open to handle some things at home. The New York Post later said he was going home to settle matters with Amanda Caulder, his college girlfriend. We wondered if Gulbis’ announcement had killed Dustin’s game, and it appeared as if that was the case.

Well Johnson is tired of people talking about his business publicly, and he addressed the media to set things straight.
