Brandon Jennings and girlfriend Tae Heckard broke up

Looks like the relationship between Brandon Jennings and Tae Heckard is over.

We told you back in May that Jennings and Heckard were together and even engaged. What was interesting about the boyfriend-girlfriend relationship is that Heckard was previously in a domestic partnership with another woman. After that woman, there were rumors that she got with rapper Nelly, who seems to be getting with everyone these days.

Jennings tweeted Friday about his relationship with Heckard and confirmed the engagement was off.

He also said Heckard tried to play him.

Did Heckard cheat on him? He’s making it sound like it by saying unless you’re married, the girl can still get with everyone else. There were some rumors that Heckard hooked up with Nelly when he was in town, which wouldn’t be the first time he was accused of breaking up an athlete’s relationship.

It could also explain this tweet:

Ashanti is Nelly’s ex. Maybe Jennings wants revenge.

Brandon Jennings tried to pass Nick Young a pill in the club

Brandon Jennings seems to be enjoying the offseason a little more than his boy Nick Young. Over the weekend, the two NBA players were partying together at a club and standing around the DJ booth. At one point, Jennings was caught on camera offering Swaggy P some sort of white pill.

The Smoking Section noted that the video was originally posted by rapper The Game but later deleted. I guess any beef The Game and Jennings had last year has been smoothed over?

As for what the pill was, we’re unsure. It could have been anything, but some have speculated that it was molly, which is a popular party drug that is similar to ecstasy. The way Young turned it down certainly makes it seem like the pill was more than aspirin.


Brandon Jennings’ girlfriend Lashontae Heckard switched teams

Brandon Jennings is together with a new girlfriend named Lashontae Heckard, and the two are rumored to be engaged. But TMZ says there is one obstacle blocking the two from getting married: a domestic partnership Heckard already is part of.

According to TMZ, Heckard and a woman named Monique Blanton got partnered in 2008. Lashontae even took Blanton’s name. The two separated in 2011, but Heckard needs to get the legal paperwork settled before she can marry Jennings.

You probably figure we’d credit Jennings with the assist for leading Tae to switch teams, but that might actually be due to Nelly. Yes, the same Nelly who is now with Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s ex-girlfriend Shantel Jackson and who was mentioned in the Greg Hardy issues. Between all the women he’s managing, how does he even have time to make new songs?

Brandon Jennings denies dating Chris Brown’s ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran

Brandon Jennings and Karrueche Tran both went on Twitter Wednesday to deny the rumor that the two are dating.

The rumor was first posted by Media Take Out Wednesday. The gossip outlet said that Jennings and Tran have been dating for the past few months.

Here’s what they reported:

The pair met up at LA hotspot GREENHOUSE a few months ago, and have been texting each other – and seeing each other on the low. Now mind you – all this happened while Chris was in REHAB.

We’re told that Chris has SUSPECTED Karrueche was creeping for months now, but had no solid proof.

Brown has been in rehab the past three months and will be there another two months, according to a judge’s order. But despite Brown not being around, Jennings not only says he is not dating Karrueche Tran, he says doesn’t even know her.

Tran also addressed the rumor on Wednesday by calling it “bs” and saying she’s “not dating anyone.”

Tran and Brown met when she was a stylist working on a gig involving Brown. They dated for a few years before their split. Jennings has been working through his first season with the Detroit Pistons after four with the Milwaukee Bucks. He has been the subject of many other dating rumors that probably had little substance to them.

Brandon Jennings, Pistons players found out about Mo Cheeks being fired on Twitter

Maurice-CheeksMaurice Cheeks was not even given a full season to prove himself as a head coach in Detroit, as the Pistons fired him 50 games into the season on Sunday. The team is currently 21-29, but the move was surprising given the fact that Cheeks was hired just eight months ago. Cheeks’ dismissal even came as a surprise to some players, who clearly had no idea he was on the hot seat.

After Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports broke the news, Brandon Jennings took to Twitter to showcase his confusion.

Even veteran forward Charlie Villanueva seemed like he had no idea Cheeks was about to be canned.

The higher-ups don’t always consult players when making a coaching change, but there is usually some sort of indication that a head coach’s days are numbered. Despite Detroit’s record, that obviously wasn’t the case with Cheeks.

Caron Butler seems irritated with Brandon Jennings showboating at end of game (Video)

Caron-Butler-Brandon-JenningsBrandon Jennings faced his former team, the Milwaukee Bucks, for the first time on Monday night as a member of the Detroit Pistons. He played well, registering a double-double that included 15 points and 13 assists. The Pistons won by a final score of 113-94, and Jennings happened to be the player with the ball who got to dribble out the clock at the end of the game.

Caron Butler did not appreciate the way Jennings went about it. Jennings dribbled the ball between his legs and around his back as the crowd cheered, and Butler briskly walked over to him and appeared to say something. He also kept staring at Jennings as the teams left the floor.

Jennings may not have been trying to show up the Bucks, but we wouldn’t be surprised if he was. This is the same guy who called out his former coach and was vocal about being benched. He wasn’t exactly happy in Milwaukee. That’s why I’m sure Jennings was happy to get the best of the Bucks for one night.

Andre Drummond throws down alley-oop from Brandon Jennings off backboard (Video)

Andre Drummond alley-oopAndre Drummond and Brandon Jennings made the highlight reel with a sick alley-oop on Sunday night during the second quarter of Detroit Pistons’ game against the Los Angeles Lakers.

Drummond got a steal on the defensive end and gave up the ball to Jennings. Jennings went hard to the rim in transition, and he decided to throw a pass off the backboard to Drummond, who slammed it down with two hands. It was beautiful.
