Paulina Gretzky opens up about not being married to Dustin Johnson

Dustin Johnson Paulina Gretzky

PGA superstar Dustin Johnson and his girlfriend Paulina Gretzky have been engaged for more than seven years now, but they still have not announced any plans for a wedding. Apparently, the two are still in no rush to tie the knot.

Gretzky spoke about her engagement to Johnson this week in an appearance on the “Netchicks” podcast, which is co-hosted by her sister-in-law Sara Gretzky. She confirmed that she and Dustin are not married but are “so in love” and are focused more on their two sons, who are 5 and 3.

“I don’t know if people know if me and Dustin are really married or not. We’re not. We’re so in love,” Gretzky said, as transcribed by William Pugh of The Sun. “I feel like everyone is like, ‘What is it? Is he not wanting to or she not wanting to?’ It’s so stupid.

“Being just with kids and being happy, I don’t want anything from Dustin other than I love him.”

Gretzky, who is the daughter of NHL legend Wayne Gretzky, was by Johnson’s side when he won the Masters back in November. She even wore her own green jacket, which led to this great tweet going viral.

Dustin and Paulina appeared to have some rocky times a few years ago as cheating rumors swirled, but that has not kept them apart. They simply aren’t in a rush to get married, and it’s fair to wonder if they ever will.

Charles Barkley jokes about Malik Beasley dating Larsa Pippen

Malik Beasley

Charles Barkley definitely keeps up on his NBA dating gossip.

Malik Beasley is averaging 19.2 points per game this season for the Minnesota Timberwolves. He had 15 points in the team’s 108-97 loss to the Atlanta Hawks on Monday, which earned him a spot on TNT’s graphic for the game.

Barkley said that Beasley was having a “hell of a year.”

That was a reference to Beasley being photographed with Larsa Pippen, who is estranged from husband Scottie. The photos of Beasley together with Pippen angered Beasley’s wife, who filed for divorce.

Not only did Beasley’s big year include being out with Larsa, but emails showed he was in a relationship with a third woman.

So, yes, Beasley is having a big statistical season both on and off the court.

Larsa Pippen defends herself against Malik Beasley accusations

Larsa Pippen

Larsa Pippen defended herself against accusations she has faced regarding a relationship with Minnesota Timberwolves guard Malik Beasley.

Photos of Beasley and Pippen holding hands were published in late November. Beasley’s wife got upset over the photos and has filed for divorce.

Pippen initially tried to downplay the photos, and now she’s defending herself.

Pippen said on Twitter that Beasley was already separated before she met him.

She also said that she is going through a divorce and that she doesn’t date a lot of guys.

While Pippen may not have done anything wrong in her mind, especially based on what Beasley has told her, the reaction from Montana Yao suggests she was not happy with things.

Lamar Odom says ex girlfriend Sabrina Parr has hijacked his social media accounts

Lamar Odom

Lamar Odom and his ex-girlfriend Sabrina Parr have seemingly had an on-and-off relationship for several months now, but they are clearly not on good terms at the moment.

Odom said in an Instagram post on Wednesday that he is “working hard to build my new brand and a new team.” He says that has been difficult because his social media accounts are being “held hostage” by his ex, which presumably refers to Parr.

“Unfortunately my social media platforms are being held hostage by my ex and we are working hard to recover my passwords for IG and Twitter — if any of y’all know someone who can get it reset for me hit my brand managers DM ASAP @savvygirlconsulting,” Odom wrote.

Odom made the post from his Instagram account, so he must have access to it. It’s unclear if he’s saying Parr also has access or the ability to hack his account.

Parr wrote in an Instagram post last month that she had made the difficult decision to end her relationship with Odom. What was more troubling was that she said Odom “desperately needs” help.

Roughly a week later, Parr shared photos and videos on social media that indicated she and Lamar had gone on a romantic getaway to celebrate the anniversary of their engagement.

Parr used to be an ESPN contributor, but she was fired a few years back for some comments she made about two NFL players. Her relationship with Odom has been a rocky one, to say the least.

LeBron James, wife lash out over Bronny James-Larsa Pippen story

Larsa Pippen

Larsa Pippen has been involved in plenty of drama within the NBA community in recent months, but LeBron James and his wife Savannah want their son to be left out of it.

A story from Black Sports Online over the weekend called attention to Bronny James, LeBron and Savannah’s 16-year-old son, liking one of Pippen’s photos on Instagram. The story has since been edited or removed, but it did not sit well with any of the parties who were mentioned. Savannah unloaded on her Instagram story.

“With everything going on in the world right now, this is the s— y’all talking about,” she wrote. “At the end of the day y’all are talking about a minor. I don’t care what type of ‘celebrity’ y’all think he is, he’s a child and the bulls— needs to stop. Y’all got the right one.”

LeBron then re-posted what his wife wrote and added some of his own commentary.

“Uh-oh y’all f—ed with the wrong one now! Good luck. It won’t be cute!” LeBron wrote.

Bronny and Pippen also shot back. Pippen threatened to “sue the f— out of” BSO in a tweet and accused the site of publishing “disgusting lies.” Bronny called the story “childish.”

Pippen, the ex-wife of Hall of Famer Scottie Pippen, was at the center of some NBA drama recently when she was spotted holding hands with Minnesota Timberwolves star Malik Beasley. Beasley is married, but his wife has filed for divorce. More allegations have since surfaced that Beasley was involved with a third woman, and a leaked email chain seemed to confirm that.

Bronny James plays at Sierra Canyon High School in California. He’s considered one of the top recruiting prospects for the Class of 2023.

Shaq denies shooting his shot with Megan Thee Stallion on Instagram

Shaquille O'Neal

Shaq denied shooting his shot with Megan Thee Stallion via Instagram Live.

Shaq wrote a comment on the rapper’s Instagram Live session in which he said “watching that booty” earlier this month.

Many interpreted that as Shaq hitting on the rapper. Even Shaq’s son, Shareef, agreed with his dad.

Shareef posted a copy of Shaq’s comments on TikTok and added “I feel you pops.”

But, no, Shaq says he wasn’t hitting on her.

“This is what happened America … I was in [the IG Live session]. Somebody said, ‘What are you doing in there?’ And, I typed what I typed. I wasn’t trying to hit on her,” Shaq told TMZ.

So there you have it. It was just one innocent comment and just Shaq telling people what he was doing. Nothing more than that.

If you believe Shaq, wait until you read what his ex-wife said about why he got divorced.

Malik Beasley’s wife Montana Yao files for divorce

Malik Beasley

Malik Beasley has found himself in the middle of a major scandal after photos surfaced showing him holding hands with Larsa Pippen, and the Minnesota Timberwolves star’s wife has now filed for divorce.

TMZ reports that Beasley’s wife, Montana Yao, filed for divorce this week. Yao filed the paperwork in Minnesota. She has been married to Beasley since March.

Yao released a lengthy statement on Instagram Wednesday addressing the drama involving her husband. She thanked her fans for their support and said the past week has been “pretty rough.” Yao also mentioned that there has been “no private or public addressing of the situation nor any type of apology.”

Beasley and Yao have one child together. After TMZ published photos that showed Beasley and Larsa Pippen — Scottie Pippen’s ex-wife — holding hands, more allegations surfaced that Beasley was involved with a third woman. You can see the leaked email that led to those new allegations here.

Beasley, 24, was traded to the Timberwolves from the Denver Nuggets back in February. He started 14 games for Minnesota and averaged 20.7 points and 5.1 rebounds per game.

Malik Beasley leaked email shows he was involved with third woman before Larsa Pippen

Malik Beasley

Malik Beasley’s wife filed for divorce recently after the Minnesota Timberwolves star was photographed holding hands with Scottie Pippen’s ex-wife Larsa. While that may have been the primary reason for the filing, it would appear Larsa was was not the only woman with whom Beasley was romantically involved.

After TMZ published photos that showed Beasley and Pippen holding hands, The Shade Room learned that Beasley has also been involved with a third woman. Some screenshots of direct messages between Beasley and the woman, whose name appears to be Alina, showed Beasley frantically trying to contact her and telling her he is “crazy for you.”

There was also an email from October in which Beasley explained what he was looking for in his relationship with the third woman. He mentioned how he has a son and will always respect the mother of his child. However, he made it clear that he wanted to remain involved with the woman romantically.

“I wanna know your needs … I wanna talk late with you, I want you to watch me play … etc,” Beasley allegedly wrote. “If you let me I can take care of you monthly if you know what I mean. What I want is to smoke with you, be inside you, laugh with you, get crazy with you, I wanna send you flowers, I want to help your daughter. If you need another phone to talk to me I’ll do that. Just whatever has to be done.”

You can see the alleged DMs and email below:

Just when you think the situation could not get any wilder, it seems to take a new turn. There was also a rumor that Beasley’s wife was involved with an NFL player, though the player denied that.

Pippen has fired back at critics on social media and insists people are making false assumptions and accusations. While we still don’t know exactly what was going on, it seems pretty obvious that Beasley was not being faithful to his wife.

Larsa Pippen hits back at critics in wake of Malik Beasley drama

Larsa Pippen

Larsa Pippen has yet to directly address the photos that surfaced showing her holding hands with Malik Beasley, but she continues to post cryptic messages about the situation on social media.

Pippen, the ex-wife of Chicago Bulls legend Scottie Pippen, appeared to address the drama multiple times on Instagram over the weekend. Her latest post on Sunday was a message about “dealing with heartache.”

Pippen also appeared to hit back at her critics on her Instagram story on Saturday.

“Don’t judge me until you know me. Don’t underestimate me unless you challenge me. And don’t talk about me until you’ve talked to me,” she wrote, according to Jessica Bennett of Page Six.

Photos of Pippen and Beasley holding hands were published earlier this week, and the Minnesota Timberwolves star’s wife has since filed for divorce. Pippen has tried to downplay the photos like nothing is going on.

As if the situation isn’t already heated enough, another rumor has surfaced that Beasley’s wife cheated on him with an NFL player.

Su’a Cravens denies rumor he cheated with Malik Beasley’s wife Montana Yao

Sua Cravens

Su’a Cravens defended himself against a rumor that he cheated with Malik Beasley’s wife, Montana Yao.

Cravens, who played college football at USC and later for Washington and Denver in the NFL, got into a fight with Malik in 2019. Beasley attacked Cravens in the lobby of an apartment building in Colorado in August 2019. Cravens claims he declined to press charges against Beasley even though law enforcement determined the NBA player was the aggressor in their fight.

There was some speculation that the fight was over Yao cheating on Beasley with Cravens, but the former NFL player denied that.

“There was no cheating,” Cravens told TMZ Sports. “Montana and I hung out years prior to her and Malik even starting to date.”

Beasley and Yao met in 2018 and got married in March. Their marriage is in peril though. Yao reportedly filed for divorce after seeing photos of Beasley with Larsa Pippen.

Beasley, 24, is entering his fifth season in the NBA and just signed a $60 million contract extension with the Timberwolves. Pippen recently offered her response to the cheating rumors.
