Simone Biles Is Most Decorated Female Gymnast Ever

Simone Biles is likely better at gymnastic than you are at tying your shoes. She’s just that good.

Henceforth, the balance beam queen shall be known as “Simone Biles, The Most Decorated Female Gymnast Of All Time”. It’s like A Tribe Called Quest, you say the whole thing.

According to CNN, Biles captured the GOAT title after winning her 21st championship in Stuttgart, Germany on Tuesday.

Of the 21 championship medals that the 22-year-old holds, 15 of them are gold which is also a record for World Championship medals.

Simone’s record could increase significantly after this weekend. Today she is competing in the Women’s All-Around Final and will take center stage for vault, uneven bars, balance beam and floor exercise.

We hope she wins them all! Congratulations!

Straaaaait Scandal: IRS Hits Newlywed Safaree With $35K Tax Lien, Alleges He Didn’t Pay Taxes For Years!! (Exclusive)

Reality Star & Sex Toy Entrepreneur Accused Of Owing Uncle Sam Five Figures

He is a newly married man who is expecting his first child with wife reality star Erica Mena.

But all of the changes in his personal life may have helped Safaree Samuels neglect his finances.

That’s because the IRS has just slapped the “Love & Hip Hop: New York” reality star with a tax lien to the tune of more than $35,000, alleging that the groom hasn’t paid his taxes in years.

According to the federal tax lien, which was filed last month and obtained by BOSSIP, Safaree owes a total of $35,166 for his income from 2012, 2017 and 2018. Specifically, the IRS contends Safaree owes $9,572 for income from 2012 – when he was still with Nicki Minaj – along with $13,699 for 2017 and $11,893 for 2018, when his income apparently mushroomed from his “Love & Hip Hop: New York” checks, a slew of personal appearances and a sex toy line.

The IRS doesn’t mess around when it comes to collecting from alleged tax dodgers and has seized assets and even jailed celebs like Lauryn Hill and Wesley Snipes over their tax debts.

Safaree had not officially responded to the lien as of Oct. 9.

Cops Kill People: Ex-Georgia Cop Acquitted Of Manslaughter After Killing Unarmed Black Man Tony Green

Ex-Cop Acquitted Of Killing Unarmed Black Man Following Traffic Stop

If Amber Guyger‘s murder conviction gave you a false sense that things are changing in the criminal justice system then allow us to burst your bubble.

It’s business as usual when it comes to cops being held accountable for killing unarmed Black people. According to WABE, a jury acquitted former Georgia cop Zechariah Presley, of voluntary manslaughter and involuntary manslaughter after he killed Tony Green. We reported on the 2018 shooting that took place after Green fled the scene of a traffic stop and was subsequently shot in the back several times.

Presley was, however, inexplicably convicted of “violating his oath of office” and is facing one to five years in prison. He was ordered to jail until sentencing on October 18.

Here’s what Pastor Mack De’Von Knight, Tony Green’s church leader, had to say about the unacceptable sentence:

“He admitted that he killed Tony Green in cold blood,” Knight said. “To me, it’s hunting season for the young black man and we’re being gunned down in the streets and there’s no repercussions, there’s no consequences for these officers.”

The prosecutor made the issue plain and simple during his closing argument:

“He made a fatal mistake and it was a mistake that cost a man his life,” prosecutor Rocky Bridges said of Presley in his closing argument. “You don’t have to like Tony Green. … He ran from the police, not a good decision. But he was not armed. He did not turn on officer Presley. He did not deserve to die.”

Period.

Evelyn Lozada’s Basketball Wives Antics

For better or worse, this has been the season of Evelyn Lozada. She has been the straw that stirs the drink on Basketball Wives and has been since the season premier a few weeks ago. Since then, she’s brought out lie detector tests, slapped the dust off of her unmentionables, and falling into the bushes.

In the last couple of weeks, she has had a feud with OG that has intensified to nuclear levels. Just last week, OG and Evelyn had it out over OchoCinco hopping in the former’s DMs. Then Evelyn filed a whole a$$ restraining order against her rival.

Which brings us to the Reunion. In the show, OG had to be sent off to another stage because Evelyn felt “threatened.” Oh. Word? Twitter was FURIOUS about this and called Evelyn out for what they consider hypocrisy.

Peep the RUTHLESS dragging.

Here’s What Happened When T.I. Called Iggy Azalea His “Biggest Blunder” And She Tried To Clap Back

2014 American Music Awards - Roaming Show

Source: Kevin Mazur/AMA2014 / Getty

T.I. And Iggy Feud Again

It was all good a couple of years ago. Remember when T.I. was out on his press run as Iggy Azalea’s hype man, co-signing her and gassing her up as she topped chart after chart? Well, T.I. has had a change of heart apparently. Now, he, as only he eloquently can say, considers the whole situation his “biggest blunder.” Peep the quote here:

Iggy Azalea, who apparently gets every bit of news that comes her way, was quick to clap back with a now-deleted tweet that said “Imagine thinking I was his biggest blunder lmaoooooooo Tip. Sweetie. We have a whole list for you.”

Welp. She does have a point, though. She did make T.I. a boatload of money, where it was problematic or not. T.I. also has a point because of the backlash he received from introducing the world to such an apparent culture vulture. Which side are you on?

Peep the tweets to see the sides people are taking.
