Odell Beckham Jr. has been having a rough season with the Cleveland Browns as the team sits at a record 2-6 and can’t seem to string any solid wins together. Despite this, OBJ has been succeeding f the court thanks to his Nike deal and now, his relationship with model Lauren Wood. The two have been spotted together in the past but it wasn’t known if they were just casually dating or engaging in some other type courtship. Based on Wood’s Instagram post from yesterday, it seems as though the two have ficially reached couple status.
Wood celebrated OBJ’s birthday by posting a few pictures with him while also fering up a heartfelt caption that led to a reply his own. It’s clear the two seem incredibly happy together.
“Happy birthday @obj ! Your soul is pure gold,” Beckham Jr said. “U know I can write lot about you, but I rather keep passing these love letters 😜 Ceasar home ❤️ PS this blurry will always be my fave pic us bc wtf is going on lol yumiii af.”
With the Browns flunking out on the football, at least we know OBJ has something to keep him occupied with away from the field. Wood has been at some his Browns game and we can’t imagine they’re very fun to sit through. Either way, congrats to the happy couple.
Michael Vick is one the most iconic quarterbacks to ever play the game thanks to his unique blend running and passing the football. Due to legal reasons that are well-publicized at this point, Vick lost touch with his career and when he came back to the NFL, he wasn’t able to reclaim his status as one the best in the league. Despite this, Vick still knows a ton about the game and when it comes to the topic quarterbacks, he is exceptionally knowledgeable.
During a recent appearance on FS1’s Speak For Yourself, Vick spoke about the struggles Bears QB Mitch Trubisky who has been awful this season. As Vick explains, the team should think about changing the fensive playbook because it’s obvious that Trubisky doesn’t feel comfortable out there.
“I think the worst thing for Mitch right now is to be benched,” Vick said. “He’s in his third year, and he’s an investment. For some quarterbacks it takes time. But I’ll say this, it’s Matt Nagy’s decision, and Matt Nagy is responsible for Mitch Trubisky. He’s responsible for making sure that this guy can go out and play better than what he played (vs. Eagles).”
Whether Trubisky is able to regain his confidence remains to be seen although it will certainly be one the biggest storylines as the season rolls on. The team is at 3-5 and their chances making the playfs continue to get slimmer.
With Game Thrones showrunners David Benif and D.B. Weiss out the plans for any upcoming Star Wars content, Rian Johnson was recently asked whether his future with Lucasfilm was certain or not. According to Uproxx, the question came at Deadline‘s ninth annual Contenders event.
“We’re still engaged with Lucasfilm and we’ll wait and see,” Johnson told the crowd. He didn’t update fans any further on his Star Wars film(s). “No updates on it at this moment, but yeah.”
Johnson also commented on his upcoming film, Knives Out, a soon-to-be-released murder mystery.
“Anyone who’s on Twitter these days, God bless you because it’s rough waters out there, but there’s also wonderful stuff about it,” Johnson said. “That’s why we’re all still on it, I guess. That’s one the things Knives Out] engages with, the current state online culture. Whether you made a Star Wars movie or you have a cooking show, whatever you’re doing on there, someone’s going to be screaming at you about it probably. Let’s put it on a screen in a way we can all maybe have a laugh about it.”
“What we try and do is place it in modern-day,” Johnson continued. “That for me meant not just skinning it with cell phones, modern cars and music. That meant actually plugging it into 2019. We do character types who are slight caricatures the type Agatha Christie used to do but with people who for better or worse you could only meet in 2019.”
Cynthia Erivo is the British actress who portrays Harriet Tubman in the upcoming biopic on the heroic abolitionist’s life that hits theaters November 1st. The 32-year-old has already received some hate for her role in the film since people questioned why an American actress wasn’t cast to play Harriet and now she’s responded to other hate she received from her past tweets.
In 2013, Cynthia sent out tweets that made it seem as though she was mocking Black Americans adding more fuel to people’s belief that an actress who has no controversy on such a topic should have been cast for the starring role in Harriet.
“As for the tweets, taken out context without giving me the room to tell you what it meant–and it wasn’t mocking anyone really,” Cynthia told Shadow And Act. “It wasn’t for that purpose at all. It was to celebrate a song I had wrote when I was 16.”
“I would never…I’ve never spoken negatively about people because I don’t want that, I don’t want that energy from me to others,” she added. “I don’t believe that serves us at all, I don’t believe it serves a purpose other than bringing negativity into my life and your life and I just don’t want that.”
Not many can boast about receiving a gift from Jay-Z; it’s like landing blessings from the Godfather himself. During a segment with GQ, DJ Khaled showcased his elaborate jewelry collection, which likely outweighs the cost an entire city block. While there’s plenty to behold, one the nicest pieces happens to be an iconic Roc-A-Fella chain, a gift personally bestowed by the Jigga Man himself.

“Jay-Z gave me this,” explains Khaled, showing f his prized possession. “It’s a Roc-A-Fella piece with a Cuban. I’m being honest, this was personally his. It wasn’t like I’ma give you a chain and the Roc piece. No, no, no. This is his. His, f his neck. This is very special to me. I’m honored and grateful to have this gift. I remember the day I got it, it was a special day. It’s beautiful. Shout out to Jay-Z.” He also showcases another gift from the homie Drake, in celebration the Asahd’s birth. “Two Keys,” says Khaled, highlighting the beautiful piece. “I didn’t expect no gift from no one, and I got a gift from Drake!”
Khaled also highlights his iconic “I call her chandelier!” Patek, a piece his fans know all-too-well. “Baguettes in the face. Bezel, wrist. This the anniversary edition. Big face. What we did was, we put baguettes all in it and it turned into a chandelier.” Khaled reveals that the initial price tag was listed as one million, but he used his maxed-out speech bar to whittle it down. “Now it’s a chandelier. If you ever need lighting, if I’m doing a show or something, I be needing lighting. Shine bright like a diamond.”
Melody Ehsani is in an interesting Los Angeles-based designer who is now getting the look a lifetime thanks to this brand new collaboration with Jordan Brand for their all-new “Fearless Ones” pack. If you’re not familiar with the collection in question, it’s essentially a huge pack Air Jordan 1s that come in multiple colorways and silhouettes. For instance, the Jordan 1 being created by Ehsani is an Air Jordan 1 Mid.
This is perhaps the most colorful sneaker in the entire pack as it has mismatching shoes. Based on the ficial images below, there really aren’t many similarities between the left and right shoes except for the white midsole and blue icy outsole. Interestingly enough, there is a watch face on the bottom the laces which creates an unheard aesthetic. Meanwhile, “If you knew what you had was rare, you would never waste it” is written across the midsole.
If you’re looking to cop this fascinating new Air Jordan 1 Mid, you can do so on Friday, November 15th for $130 USD, according to Sole Collector. Let us know in the comments what you think about these.

For starters, it finally happened: this week we got Jesus Is King. Kicking f the playlist is, what might be, an early contender for best track f the project. “Follow God” sees Kanye revisiting “Father Stretch My Hands.” He uses a repeated theme his father telling him his actions aren’t “Christ-like,” making for some the best songwriting on the project.
Fans were also treated to a new project from Guapdad 4000 earlier this week. On “Izayah,” Guapdad 4000 teams up with Maxo Kream, Denzel Curry, and Key! to put together a fire song over Kenny Beats’s production. The “I was stealin’ all the motherfuckin’ money out that bank” hook is unforgettable.
Moving on, there’s “DHL” from Frank Ocean, which no one could have missed this week, songs from Megan Thee Stallion, Dave East and more. Check out the rest the FIRE EMOJI playlist below.

Footage has surfaced online Steve Stoute’s United Masters company showing Kanye, Kim Kardashian and Steve shopping for a new Jesus Piece chain.

Kanye goes on to say Nas once told him you always need to buy a chain when a new album comes out.
“Nas told me you gotta get a new chain every album come out,” Kanye says in the clip to the jeweler. Its unclear if ‘Ye walked out with a new chain and if so, how much he dropped for it, but it appears the purchase is imminent, especially if it’s a Jesus piece.

It’s Halloween season! During this time year, children can’t wait for trick-or-treating, while parents take pride in pumpkin picking with their families. Carving out pumpkins and taking pictures with their children is what makes this season so fun, besides the haunted houses and creative costumes course. One the many parents taking the opportunity to bond with the family is Erika Hart. Kevin Hart’s wife was recently spotted at a pumpkin patch with her child, Kenzo, but Kevin was apparently nowhere to found.
Considering what Kevin Hart has gone through this past year, including the court battle with ex-business partners, a tape leak, and an almost fatal car accident, it’s understandable that Kevin needs to take his time out the spotlight. He’s still recovering from his car accident, which had caused 3 spinal fractures and back surgery. That didn’t stop the comedian from getting back to work. He’s working on the new Jumanji movie, but he’s not fully recovered just yet. Although he’s not feeling 100%, he’s definitely giving 100% to make this new movie a success. He may have missed out on pumpkin picking with his kid, but that didn’t stop Kenzo from smiling, laughing and having a blast with his mother. He really takes after his father, always finding the positive light in every situation.
It’s also clear that Kevin will take his time to recover, as his wife takes control their parental duties for the time being.
Disney has openly expressed their pro-LGBTQ agenda. Just this past Wednesday, Disney executives confirmed that there’s a gay couple in their animated kids’ show, Star Wars Resistance, and they’re “proud that.” Of course, these decisions have been met with backlash from more conservative folk.
Masika Kalysha has just made clear where she stands in this debate. Kalysha reposted a message on Instagram that reads, “It’s not about homouality or heterouality. Stop promoting SEXUALITY to our children PERIOD. Let kids be kids.” Love & Hip Hop Hollywood star also shared a lengthy caption expanding on why she agrees with this statement:
“This is for the fools that thinks it’s “progressive” when Disney has a gay couple kissing next to Nemo… NO #KB ain’t watching Adam and Eve in ual situations the hell u think I’m supposed to let her watch Adam and Steve lip lockin for. It’s not progressive it’s SUGGESTIVE and I suggest you let a child be a child.”
The Shade Room reposted Kalysha’s post and many celebrities chimed in in the comments to express their agreement. Among this faction was T.I., Lisa Leslie, Asia’h Epperson, Ben Baller and Phaedra Parks. On the other hand, Milan Christopher provided an argument for why their view is skewed. Uuuum Saweetie all the fairytales under the sun always had intimate scenes beloved. Sleepy beauty, lil mermaid, Cinderella, Snow White etc. Now that it’s a rainbow emoji] scene or two it’s a problem? Let me call you & cuzz you out! Gul bye! Lmfaooo,” he commented.
Gucci Mane has been making his rounds to various publications this week to promote his new album Wobtober II, which dropped on Friday. One his visits was to ESPN’s Jalen & Jacoby, where he spent most his time talking about sports. During which, he even revealed that he lost over 6 figures to Drake over the Bucks x Raptors series. If you didn’t know Gucci is a big Bucks & Greek Freak fan, but it appears Drizzy got the better end him when they faced the Raptors in the playfs.
“Yeah, I lost a bunch money. I loss over six figures and I lost my damn shirt. Cause we bet the jersey too so I lost the shirt too though,” Gucci said. When Jalen Rose said he knew six figures to them wouldn’t be just $100,000, Gucci shock his head yea and said “thats light,” reassuring he probably lost much more than that.
Gucci wasn’t too worried though as he said “we’ll get him back this season,” and he’s probably right. With the removal Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green, the Raptors are surely not the same team as last year, where as the Bucks will once again be rather dominant.
LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers coasted to a 33-point victory in their penultimate pre-season game at the Staples Center on Wednesday night, as they throttled the Golden State Warriors from wire to wire.
LeBron led the way with a team-high 18 points to go along with 11 assists and four rebounds in his 25 minutes action, which included a jaw-dropping no-look pass. The four-time MVP’s court vision was on full display as he drove to the basket in the third quarter and flicked a pass behind his head, with his left head, to a wide open Danny Green in the corner.
Check out all angles the ridiculous no-look dime in the video embedded below.
Anthony Daivs, who suffered a sprained right thumb during the team’s second pre-season game, returned to the lineup last night and chipped in eight points, eight assists and 10 rebounds in the 126-93 win.
After the game, LeBron praised Davis’ ability to do it all on the floor.
“He has seen multiple defenders for seven straight years in New Orleans. He is able to read the defense. He can create for himself any time,” said James (H/T ESPN). “There are not many guys in our league that can affect the game the way AD does. He can score, rebound and pass. He just does it at a high level.”
The Lakers will wrap up their pre-season slate on Friday night in San Francisco. They’ll kickf the 2019-20 season on October 22 as they take on the Los Angeles Clippers.

Jeremy has since fired back at the claims, denying the reports claiming he has pro that he’s sober since agreeing to random drug tests. The 48-year-old actor says his ex-wife is the crazy one who’s trying to get money from their divorce and is trying to ruin his career. Sonni is accused bragging to her friends about bagging “an Avenger” and joked that she should introduce her friends to other Avenger cast members so they can do the same.
“The well-being his daughter Ava has always been and continues to be the primary focus for Jeremy,” the actor’s representative told TMZ. “This is a matter for the court to decide.
