Gossip

Cody Bellinger cozy with Giancarlo Stanton’s ex-girlfriend Chase Carter

Cody Bellinger

Chase Carter is going from one MVP to another.

Carter appears to be getting cozy with Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Cody Bellinger. A photo of the two appeared on social media that showed them holding hands.

Swipe Sports points out that Bellinger is also now following some people on Instagram who are close to Carter, which is a good sign they are getting close.

Carter, who is an SI swimsuit model, previously dated Giancarlo Stanton. In fact, the two made an official appearance in March 2019. They were said to have been dating since 2018, and Carter even took in Yankees playoff game last fall. Now she appears to have moved on to Bellinger.

Bellinger was the 2019 NL MVP. Stanton was the 2017 NL MVP. If things don’t work out with Bellinger, we have an idea of whom Carter could pursue next.

Emmitt Smith, wife Pat getting divorce after 20 years

Emmitt Smith and his wife Pat have been together since the Hall of Famer was embarrassing defenders as a member of the Dallas Cowboys, but the two have decided to separate.

Pat, whose maiden name is Southall, issued a joint statement on social media over the weekend announcing that she and Emmitt are separating. She indicated the split is an amicable one.

“We are publicly sharing that after much contemplation and prayer, we have decided to separate,” the statement read. “We will continue to move forward with love and compassion for one another, as co-parents and friends. We will work together in the best interests of our children, our family, community and businesses. As we take this journey toward the next chapter in our lives, we ask for privacy at this time.”

Smith and Southall, who is a former Miss Virginia USA beauty queen, got married in 2000. They have three children together. Southall is Smith’s second wife, as she was also married to Martin Lawrence from 1995 to 1997 and has a daughter with the actor.

EJ Smith, Emmitt’s and Pat’s son, is a top running back like his father and committed to Stanford last year. Emmitt shared an awesome message at the time EJ made the decision.

Dak Prescott, girlfriend Natalie Buffett appear to go public with relationship

Dak Prescott may not have landed the long-term deal he was hoping for this offseason, but things appear to be going just fine for the Dallas Cowboys quarterback.

While Prescott has largely kept his personal life under wraps, it has been rumored for months now that he is dating a model named Natalie Buffett. It appears we now have confirmation of that — at least as far as the Instagram detectives are concerned.

Prescott celebrated his 27th birthday on Wednesday, and Buffett shared a photo of the two on Instagram and wished Dak a happy birthday. Prescott then replied, “My girl!!! Thank you.” A screenshot of the post was captured by EgotasticSports.com.

When Prescott was criticized for hosting a social gathering at his house amid the coronavirus pandemic back in April, there was a report that he was having a dinner party for a friend named Natalie. That was likely Buffett.

Prescott has been rumored to have a number of different girlfriends since he was a star at Mississippi State, but we can only remember him publicly acknowledging one of the relationships.

The Cowboys did not sign Prescott to a long-term deal prior to the deadline for franchise tagged players earlier this month. The quarterback will now play out the 2020 season on a one-year, $31 million deal, though the two sides may have been extremely close to an agreement when the deadline passed.

Aaron Rodgers linked to actress Shailene Woodley after Danica Patrick split

Aaron Rodgers

Aaron Rodgers and Danica Patrick are no longer dating after two years together, and there are already rumors that the Green Bay Packers quarterback has moved on to a new flame. Those rumors, however, appear to lack real substance.

Fans noticed last week that Patrick had unfollowed Rodgers on Instagram, and the race car driver later confirmed that the couple has split. Gossip site Terez Owens claims Rodgers was spotted getting cozy last weekend in Lake Tahoe with actress Shailene Woodley. Rodgers was in Tahoe taking part in the American Century Championship celebrity golf tournament.

According to Terez Owens, which got the information from an anonymous tipster, Patrick is the one who introduced Rodgers to Woodley and Danica is “devastated by Aaron’s betrayal.”

Of course, there is no actual evidence that links Rodgers to Woodley. Kelly Wynne of Newsweek reached out to Woodley and her representatives and did not receive a response.

Rodgers tries to keep his personal life to himself, but he certainly has an affinity for high-profile relationships. He was with actress Olivia Munn for a long time before he started dating Patrick, and some of the former NFL MVP’s family drama may have contributed to his breakup with Munn. We don’t know if Rodgers actually became involved with Woodley, but it would not exactly be a shock.

Kristin Cavallari reportedly felt Jay Cutler was ‘lazy’ and ‘unmotivated’

Jay Cutler

Jay Cutler and his wife Kristin Cavallari announced recently that they have decided to get a divorce, and it sounds like things between the two began to sour when Cutler chose football over broadcasting nearly three years ago.

Cavallari felt that Cutler had become “lazy” and “unmotivated” since his final season in the NFL back in 2017, according to a report from Page Six. One source indicated to the gossip outlet that Cavallari was bothered by Cutler leaving a job with FOX Sports to play for the Miami Dolphins.

“She was growing increasingly impatient with him. He was supposed to take this big job at FOX Sports and have a life after football that would get him up off the couch and do something,” the source said. “Instead, he backed out — this is [three] years ago — and joined the Dolphins. That didn’t pan out well, and he was left with no TV gig until she got the show for them.”

The source also said Cavallari “views herself as very polished and put together, and [Cutler as] this lazy, unmotivated guy.”

Cavallari indicated on social media years ago that she was unhappy about Cutler’s decision to continue his football career rather than become a broadcaster. There seems to still be interest in the former quarterback as an analyst from major networks, though it’s unclear if he will pursue opportunities this year.

Cutler was probably underrated as a quarterback throughout much of his NFL career, and he did make more than $120 million. It’s probably hard to become passionate about something after you make that much money playing, though Cavallari thinking Cutler was “lazy” fits in perfectly with the Smokin’ Jay Cutler image.

Jay Cutler, Kristin Cavallari reportedly in money fight amid divorce

Jay Cutler

Jay Cutler and wife Kristin Cavallari are getting a divorce, and things are starting to get ugly as they sort through things.

According to TMZ Sports, Cavallari had a legal filing on Wednesday in which she accused Cutler of refusing to leave their home and blocking her from getting funds to buy her own place.

The report states that Cavallari went looking for a home last fall but called it off when they decided to give the marriage a last chance. Unfortunately things did not work out with their marriage, and now she says Cutler will not give her the money for a new home. The two have three children together and are also trying to work on a custody agreement.

Cutler and Cavallari have been married for seven years and were together for for 10 years. They had some relationship problems early on when they called off their engagement, but they sorted out matters and got married. Unfortunately they are now getting a divorce and going through the ugly fighting that is all too common with these proceedings.

Cutler and Cavallari both issued the same statement via their respective Instagram accounts, which said that they have “nothing but love and respect for one another and are deeply grateful for the years shared, memories made, and the children we are so proud of.” The announcement indicates that the split is an amicable one.

Here’s Cutler’s post:

And here’s Cavallari’s:

Cutler and Cavallari began dating in 2010 and got engaged in 2011. They had relationship issues early on and called off their engagement at one point, but they got married in June of 2013 when Cutler was with the Chicago Bears. They have two sons and a daughter together.

Cutler has made frequent appearances on Cavallari’s reality TV series “Very Cavallari,” and the two became popular among fans for having a sense of humor about their relationship. It remains to be seen if any of the problems the couple was having will be featured on the show in the future.
