Yesterday, we reported that Sacramento Kings head coach Luke Walton has been accused sexual assault in a new lawsuit from Kelli Tennant who is a former host on Spectrum SportsNet LA. Tennant says that Walton had made sexual advances on her in a hotel room and that there were times where she was scared what he might do. In a press conference on Tuesday, Tennant spoke about her experience with Walton and that she delayed her allegations because she was scared what might happen.
“When someone assaults you and you think you’re going to be raped, coming forward is a scary thing,” Tennant said according to ESPN. “And I have spent years now dealing with this, trying to forget about it, hoping that I could push it to the side and bury it and hoping that time would heal. And that was not the case. And I feel like over this time, I was able to muster up the courage and have enough conversations with my attorney Garo Mardirossian] where I felt comfortable to talk about this.”
Tennant then went on to give an in-depth explanation her alleged interaction with Walton.
“I thought he was going to rape me. I was finally able to get up after what felt like forever. And I immediately jumped up to leave the room, and he came around and grabbed me from behind and again held my arms down so I could not move. And started kissing my neck again. I kept begging him to please let go and to please stop. And he continued to laugh in my ear. He finally let me go, and I got out the room,” Tennant explained.
Stay tuned for updates on this case.

Despite trailing for most the series, the Oklahoma City Thunder were talking a lot smack to the Portland Trail Blazers. The Trail Blazers were a better team for most the series and a lot that had to do with the play their point guard Damian Lillard. In game 5, with the game tied at 115 with just seconds left, Lillard hit a 37-foot dagger to win the game 118-115 and end the series in just five games. It was a result no one saw coming, with Lillard’s shot becoming an iconic moment in NBA history.
After the game, the Thunder had to answer for their disappointing end to the season. One those players was Paul George, who was the player guarding Lillard on the last shot. Instead taking the blame for not playing aggressive defense, George chose to say that Lillard’s shot wasn’t even that good.
“Yeah, that’s a bad shot,” George said according to Sports Illustrated. “I don’t care what anyone says. That’s a bad shot. But he made it. That story will be told that it was bad shot and you have to live with it.”

In game 5, Lillard showcased even more heroics as he dropped 50 points and scored an iconic last-second three-point shot to knock f the Thunder once and for all.
Lillard shot the ball from 37-feet and explained after the game that he was comfortable with taking a shot from that far away.
“I didn’t want to put it into the referee hands,” Lillard said according to ESPN. “Where if there was contact or maybe they get away with contact or I end up having to take a tougher shot because there was contact and they don’t want to decide the game. So I was standing there looking at the rim and I was like this is a comfortable range.”
Lillard had been making deep shots all series long and even waved goodbye to the Thunder when the shot went in. The shot proved to be redemption for last year’s playfs when the Trail Blazers were eliminated in four-straight
As Soulja Boy sits in a jail cell awaiting his April 30 court date, his home in Agoura Hills, California was recently burglarized. The thieves allegedly stole jewelry, cash, personal items, and an iPhone, totaling approximately $500K worth cash and items. Now that Soulja has been presented with the facts in his case, he believes that it was an inside job.
TMZ reports that the rapper and his team have gone over the security footage from his home and after viewing it, Draco thinks that someone he knows set him up. It’s apparent from the tapes that the thieves went straight to his safe and broke in at the exact time when no one would be at the house. On the day the robbery, Soulja’s team left the house for a few hours and the suspects snuck in through a door that was damaged by the police raid in February just 30 minutes before everyone was to return. It only took them five minutes in total to break in, make their way to the safe, grab the goods, and run out.
Soulja’s home isn’t easily accessed, either, as TMZ also says that it’s difficult to find unless someone has been at the location before. It’s hidden f in a secluded location and one would have to know where it is—and who resides there—in order for it to be a target. To make matters worse, the robbers reportedly logged into to Soulja’s Instagram account from his phone and went on Live to boast about the robbery.

Josh Lewenberg, a Raptors NBA beat reporter, tweeted that Drake had one question as he left the arena. “Drake to the media on his way out the building. ‘You want me to talk about the curse or you guys good?'”

The former NBA star is said to be the third person that has interviewed for the Laker’s coach position. Philadelphia 76ers assistant coach Monty Williams and former Cleveland Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue both completed their interviews last week. There are a few more possibilities that have yet to sit down with Laker’s executives, including Miami Heat assistant coach Juwan Howard.
Things are shaking up for the Lakers following both Magic Johnson and Luke Walton’s departures, although the former is said to be still working with the team in a different capacity. Who do you think the team should bring as a coach to lead them to victory?
Look, for those that have had one too many, you know what it’s like when you feel like a boss f the sauce. Who knows how many drunk-girl-DMs Drake has sitting in Instagram messages, but Lizzo isn’t afraid to admit that at one point, she slid her way into the OVO rapper’s inbox. The rapper-singer visited Busy Tonight and talked about the sending—and unsending—Drake a message.

Lizzo was asked who she would like to collaborate with and she emphatically answered “Adele, b*tch!” Busy Phillips asked her if she’s DM’d Adele to ask her to hop on a record, and Lizzo admitted that she has DM’d, but it wasn’t Adele. “I used to slide into DMs,” she said. When pressed for more information, Lizzo admitted, “I slid into Drake’s DMs, but it was bold. I was drunk and I was just like, ‘Let’s just see if this motherf—er can sing,'” she said as she mocked being drunk. “And I sent him a DM…this was a while ago. And then I unsent it, and then he followed me after that…but he likes my songs.”
She’s obviously not ashamed it, probably because it was on a work flow and not…well…you know. Meanwhile, the rapper is currently on her sold out “Cuz I Love You Tour” after releasing her major label debut the same name last week.
