Brynn’s Digging for Matt Leinart’s Gold

First we had the news drop in earlier in the week that Matt Leinart was a deadbeat dad — if you can believe his former girlfriend and baby’s mother, Brynn Cameron. But then again, after hearing what this chick reportedly wants, she just might be out to make him look bad. Because this report is just insane. From the always reliable TMZ:

TMZ has learned that the NFL pretty boy is locked in a raging legal fight with his ex-girlfriend, Brynn Cameron, over the couple’s 9-month-old son Cole. According to sources close to the case, Brynn wants Matt to hand over more than $30,000 per month! That’s a ton of jack for a 21-year-old living with her parents! According to sources close to the case, Leinart’s pissed — having already bought her a car, as well as voluntarily giving her around six grand a month.

Sources tell TMZ that the former USC star already “comes back to L.A. once a week, every week, to see the baby,” but he wants a schedule where he can see the kid in Arizona as well. Unlike most pro athlete dads who have kids out of wedlock, we’re told Matt is an engaged father who wants to be in his son’s life.

Hey, I’ll be first to say that Leinart screwed up big time by letting one slip past the goalie, but $30,000/month is just highway robbery. Think about it. 30 grand a month? That’s 360,000 bucks a year just to be some kids mom. And she was in college eating top ramen and dorm food when they were dating; the argument that she grew accustomed to a lifestyle would be a joke. Like my buddy Andy says, if this chick is trying to make a comeback to the basketball courts, collegiate athletics shouldn’t allow it based on the type of income she’ll be pulling. This could be absolute robbery.

Are You Excited About Serena Williams Posing Nude?

Serena Williams decided to bare all in a 2007 edition of Jane Magazine. Standing with her self-proclaimed “bootylicious” backside turned towards the camera, Serena is posing with nothing but a flower covering her behind, and some silver pumps on her feet.

I’ve heard this met with conflicting opinion. Some people feel Serena is the sexiest being on Earth (see this for proof). They say she’s pretty, athletic, curvy, and toned. Others feel she is way too bulky, muscular to the point of having a man’s body.

You know, I could see the argument from both sides. I think Serena definitely has a cultural flavor to her — especially if you like her “massive” booty.

Uh-oh! Did an NBA Ref Bet on Games?

Jimmy the GreekThis is deep doodoo for the NBA — really bad news. Apparently the ref in question got himself into the trouble by wagering on games with the wrong people to begin with. From the New York Post:

THE FBI is investigating an NBA referee who allegedly was betting on basketball games – including ones he was officiating during the past two seasons – as part of an organized-crime probe in the Big Apple, The Post has learned.

The sources indicated the referee apparently had a gambling problem, slipped into debt and fell prey to mob thugs.

“That’s how he got himself into this predicament” by wagering with mob-connected bookies, one source said.

Now that is some messed up stuff if I’ve ever seen anything. You know, wouldn’t be the first time people had suspicions that games were fixed and that the refs had something to do with it. This would give us second thoughts every single time we saw a questionable foul called towards the end of a game. This is incredible. This is insane. This will positively blow the lid off of sports.

Check Out Nick Lachey’s Oh Face

There was all kinds of buzz going around recently saying that Nick Lachey and Vanessa Manillo had a sex tape coming out. Both were in fear that such a tape would emerge — obviously they learned nothing from the career successes of Paris and Kardashian. So not that this has anything to really do with sports, aside from the fact that Lachey has commentated on a few ESPN sporting events — college football I think — but I still will present the pictures. Why? Because they’re freaking hilarious.

Look at him working it, homeboy had his Oh Face on. Courtesy Just Jared.

Venus Williams Is Hank Kuehne’s Sugar Momma

Venus Williams and Hank Kuehne

UPDATE: Rumors say Venus Williams and Hank Kuehne might be engaged!

Something tells me that I’ve seen this news somewhere before, but now that she’s at Wimbledon (and advancing to the 4th round), the pics are all over. Bossip tells me that Venus is going with this Hank Kuehne character who pocketed just over 10k on the Nationwide Tour as a golfer (and $2.6 mil on the PGA Tour as Curt in the comments points out). Now he has the pleasure (?) of traveling first class around the world and nailing Venus Williams at night. Yikes. He’s also reportedly divorced, carrying some baggage. So where and how did these two get together? There are some questions that just may never go answered. This might be one of them.

Kobe Bryant’s Alleged Ex-Bodyguard Patrick Graber, Tell-All Book About the Rape

Upset over what he says was a frame job by Kobe’s legal team to serve as a media diversion during Bryant’s trial, alleged former bodyguard Patrick Graber is striking back. He is releasing a book called Dead Women Tell No Tales: the truth about the Kobe Bryant Rape Case. Judging by the online book, Graber does not hold back one bit. Here are some of the notable aspects of what the book touches on.

Graber says Bryant had several other mistresses and that Kobe wanted to put the hit on the witness:

Graber and Bryant meet in July 2003 in Kobe’s luxury apartment in Westwood where the player is being entertained by two of his mistresses. Bryant proposes to his bodyguard to eliminate the witness in the Colorado rape case.

Graber says Kobe was a player with the ladies:

The bodyguard observes firsthand the superstar’s bizarre infidelities with several women at the same time.

Graber says Kobe fit right in with the NBA image:

Exposure of Bryant’s true character away from the basketball court and how he fits into the disturbing NBA culture where social norms seem to be inexistent and violence against women commonplace.

Graber says he was framed:

Graber and Bryant’s head of security meet. Kobe changes his plan and Revilla orchestrates Graber’s entrapment and arrest to divert the media attention away from the Colorado rape case thus improving Bryant’s damaged public image.

There is also a testimonial on the about page from a man named Jondell R. Montgomery of Long Beach, brace yourself:

The account of Kobe participating in orgies and the description of the surroundings is accurate. A attended a few of those parties myself…

Wow, does Graber sure have an axe to grind here. The truth behind the contents of the book are debatable. But as is the case with most things, there has to be some correctness to it. And from the descriptions by Graber, Kobe seems just as like the crook he was made out to be in Colorado. The question then becomes whether or not people will take this book seriously. If so, how much will this damage Kobe’s reputation which seems to have been patched up? Secondly, does he stand to lose fans and endorsement dollars because of the book? Only time will tell. But giving my opinion, I’ve always though Kobe was a punk, and everything that is coming out in this book supports that sentiment.

Thanks to Young, Black, and Fabulous for bringing the book to my attention.

A-Rod, Busted at a Strip Club!

So much for that squeaky clean image. Let’s get right down to the details — the dirty ones. The New York Post has some photos of Alex Rodriguez hitting the city with a rather well-endowed blonde.

The cozy duo dined with two pals at a pricey steakhouse late Sunday night, then headed to a glitzy strip club before making their way to his hotel, where the pair ducked into an elevator and headed upstairs just after midnight.

Cynthia Rodriguez – A-Rod’s wife and mother of their 2 1/2-year-old daughter, Natasha – was nowhere to be seen during the slugger’s big night out on the town, which occurred the evening before the last-place Bronx Bombers’ pathetic 7-2 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays.

And it came as Rodriguez took a room at Toronto’s Four Seasons hotel – down the street from the Park Hyatt, where most, if not all of his Yankee teammates and coaches are staying during a three-game stint that ends tonight.

So let’s see shall we. The Yanks suck, they’re tied for last with the Devil Rays, they can’t buy a complete game, and everyone’s wondering who’s going to get axed first: the GM or the manager. Yet A-Rod’s made time in his night to possibly drop some dolla bills inside a stripper’s G-string. Maybe he’s just trying to loosen up the atmosphere. Dare I say this is the ultimate iceberg that sinks the Titanic? And will A-Rod go Kobe and bring Jeter down with him? A-Rod’s going to have a tough time explaining this one.
