Boston Celtics player Jabari Bird appears to have his hands occupied with more than a basketball if new allegations ring true. The 24-year-old guard allegedly strangled his girlfriend 12 times and is now facing charges from Boston prosecutors.

TMZ Sports reports:

24-year-old Bird appeared in court in Boston on Thursday where prosecutors laid out the case against him … and the allegations are horrifying. WBZ-TV’s Beth Germano got a photo of Bird in court.

Officials say the alleged victim claims Bird terrorized her for 4 hours at his Brighton apartment — where she tried to get away from the NBA player by hiding under her bed and locking herself in her bathroom.

During the alleged altercation, the woman claims Bird strangled her at least 12 times.

She claims she tried to escape, but Bird grabbed her by the ankles and dragged her away from the door.

Officials say Bird appeared to be having “seizure-like” symptoms during the end of the attack — and that’s how she was able to leave.

The alleged assault took place on Sept. 7. Bird has since issued a statement saying he will step away from the team to not cause a distraction and address the pending legal matter.

Young Thug Released From Jail, Out On $100K Bail For Drug Case

Young Thug has been released from jail but it will take some further finessing to get his full freedom back. Thugger still faces some serious charges for one of several arrests.

On September 11 the man known as “Sex” turned himself into DeKalb County police in Georgia. Local authorities issued a warrant for the rapper stating he was wanted on eight felonies. These crimes range from possession and intent to distribute amphetamine, Alprazolam (Xanax), codeine and carrying an unregistered firearm.

The charges stem from a September 2017 arrest where Jefferey was pulled over for illegally tinted windows. During a search cops found a couple ounces of marijuana, a buffet of the aforementioned drugs and about $50,000 in cash.

Bossip reports that Thugger appeared in court yesterday (September 13) and it seems his legal team is worth every penny of their retainer. Prosecutors advocated that he stay behind bars until his trial concludes but the judge granted him bail of $100,000 which he posted later that day.

His legal problems do not end there, though. On August 17 the “Stoner” rapper was arrested at his own listening event for his latest project Slime Language. Apparently, his driver crashed into a police vehicle prompting a search of their car. According to the police documents several weapons were uncovered.

Young Thug faces heavy time if convicted on all counts.

Just a few months ago Wale signed a shiny new deal with Warner Bros. Records. While he’s been dropping treats for his fans here and there ever since, today (Sept. 14) the “DMV” rapper drops an EP to hold his fans down till a full-length studio LP makes its way to the public.

Taking to IG earlier to preview the tracklisting, the Free Lunch EP comes in at 5 cuts deep with Wale going solo on three tracks and Eric Billinger and J. Cole hopping on the remaining two (remember when Wale and J. Cole were taking shots at each other? Glad they’re cool again). No word yet on when we can expect his first full length LP on Warner Bros. but as long as he keeps giving his fans something to munch on while they wait for him to finish cooking it up, they can’t be too mad. Can they?

Check out Free Lunch below and let us know your thoughts on Wale’s latest project.

#JustDoIt: Nike Stock Hits All-Time High Despite MAGA White Rage

Nike Shares Hit All Time High

Despite an initial dip, Nike is winning now after revealing the new Just Do It ad campaign featuring Colin Kaepernick.

Looks like those MAGA idiots burning their Nike sneakers and cutting the Swoosh off their socks and other clothing items is not having the effect they hope it would on the sportswear brand. After the orange menace, Donald Trump asked what was Nike thinking? And then proclaiming the iconic sportswear brand “is getting absolutely killed with anger and boycotts,” Nike’s shares have hit an all-time high closing at $83.47 on Thursday.

Early data from Edison Trends shows Nike’s sales are tracking well above last year despite the white rage that was on full display upon the Kaepernick led ad campaign. After scanning 200 receipts from online retailers, Edison discovered Nike sales were 22 percent higher on the Tuesday following the day after the ad was first revealed to the world eclipsing the numbers on the same day back in 2017.

Wednesday sales were 42 percent higher and Thursday 23 percent higher remaining well above the figures from 2017 through the end of the week. Edison does point out that these trends are incomplete and that they only offer a glimpse of those who purchased Nike goods to support the campaign following its release. So it doesn’t reflect those who plan to boycott the company over time.

That still won’t stop us from basking in the salty white tears from those upset at this news at the moment. So to all of those out there buying Nike products to make a hater mad, continue to Just Do It for the culture.

Twitter Destroys Sly Fox News Station’s Attempt To Slander Murder Victim #BothamJean

Amber Guyger Mugshot

Fox News was definitely chomping at the bit to change the narrative of the story involving the shooting death of Black man Botham Jean at the hands of Dallas officer Amber Guyger. After the struggle news network published a smear article mentioning marijuana was found at Jean’s home, Twitter has been slandering Fox News with relentless fury.

For those who missed the story, Guyger entered the home of Jean mistakenly last week and fatally shot him. After posting $300,000 this past Sunday, Guyger is now facing manslaughter charges as the investigation rolls on. Rumors that the two knew each other outside of being neighbors have been shut down, but that hasn’t stopped the likes of Fox News saying that Jean wasn’t compliant during the encounter and mentioning the fact he had weed inside HIS apartment.

Twitter is doing an excellent job of showing Fox News just how ham-fisted and racist it is by mentioning the fact without pointing out that Guyger was in the wrong. Check out the reactions below.

DreamDoll Claims Nicki Minaj Tried to Have her Kicked Out of Radio Station

Nicki Minaj’s list of enemies now includes DreamDoll according to a recent interview the “Everything Nice” rapper did with Thisis50, published on Monday. The Bronx native alleges that Nicki tried to kick her out of Power 105.1’s radio station in New York.

The Bronx rapper explained that she was promoting her latest mixtape, Life in Plastic 2, when the “Barbie Dreams” rapper pulled up with a large group. Dreamy says she was enjoying walnut shrimp and chicken satay from the Flatiron District’s Jue Lan Club, so she entered the back room to continue eating in peace.

“When old girl came in there, there was some things that got back to me saying that we was told to get out the room,” DreamDoll said. “There was a call received saying that DreamDoll, that you know the reason why, [Power 105.1’s DJ] Self, you know the reason why, old girl don’t fuck with you. And the name that came out their mouth was DreamDoll and they said it three times.”

Dream says she never even met Nicki at the time, but speculates that the bad blood comes from her connection to Lil Kim, who was feature on LIP2 and has a long-standing feud with Minaj.

Additionally, Nicki recently dissed DJ Self, who owns Gwinnin Entertainment which is the label Dream is signed to. Either way, DreamDoll says she doesn’t have a problem with the Queen rapper. After all, they now have the same stylist and both be slaying to the Gods.

‘Fan’ Sucker Punched Tekashi 6ix9ine at Russian Show

Things almost got ugly for Tekashi 6ix9ine during one of his performances in Russia after he fan snuck on stage and sucker punched him.

The blow apparently was no match for the “GUMMO” rapper who stood to his feet and began retaliating against the attacker with his security guards. After 69 got a couple hits in, his security team dragged the man to the side and began pulverizing him.

After the incident surfaced online, Tekashi went on Instagram live to tell his side of the story and recalled a similar situation that happened to the late XXXTentacion. “The kid tried to run on stage,” 6ix9ine says. “You remember the video when a nigga ran on stage while X was performing and tried to knock him out? Well, the nigga tried to do some bozo shit like that and he got packed out.”

Considering his pending sexual misconduct case, Tekashi 6ix9ine took the time out to justify his self defense. “I don’t want people thinking we’re just out here beating people up. The kid tried to play stupid.”
