Making It Rain On Those French Hoes

Posted by Bossip Staff

Cullen Jones and the US Olympic Swim Team won the Gold yesterday in the 4×100 Freestyle relay:

Swimmer Cullen Jones is still reeling from winning Olympic gold in a relay that is already being called one of the most exciting races in sports history. And now he is just starting to digest the longer-reaching impact his victory could have on a sport that is lacking in diversity.

“I was told, ‘You could change the face of swimming by getting more African-Americans into swimming,’ ” Jones, 24, said. “At first I was like, ‘Really, me?’ I never got into it thinking I could do something like that, you never do. I just liked to swim.” Continue »

Trina and Kenyon Martin Involved in Car Accident

Posted by Bossip Staff

Here are some pics of Trina and her boo Kenyon Martin’s car wreck in Belize this weekend. Hopefully, they were not hurt, but two children were injured in the crash.

Update: A release statement has been made regarding the accident:

“Trina was in a small fender bender in Belize, yesterday on her way from the airport to a charity basketball event this weekend,” Trina’s publicist Krystle Coleman [said]. “She is currently fine, and ‘extremely thankful’ that no one was hurt in the small car accident. She is looking forward to the rest of her weekend on vacation and thankful for everyone’s safety.”

The driver of the minivan, George Abraham, suffered minor injuries but his 12 and nine year- old-sons sustained injuries more severe. In an interview after the accident with Belize’s Local 7 News, Abraham accused Trina and Martin’s driver of being in the wrong. “I was on my right hand side and this vehicle overtake on this side,” Abraham said. “That guy was in the wrong in that vehicle. I was on my correct hand. ‘Ahh my shoulder.’”

Other witnesses said the police motorcade was so large, that oncoming traffic was forced to swerve to the sides on a narrow stretch of the road. “Bringing in such a huge figure within the NBA, we thought that it would just add some level of our thoughts and what it meant having them coming into our country and we wanted to show them with humbleness what it is that it means to us as Belizeans and also – everybody’s been expecting them,” organizer Diane Finnegan told Local 7 News.

Police are investigating the accident, as well as if the motorcade for Trina and Kenyon Martin was officially sanctioned.

When The Checks Stop Coming In

Posted by Bossip Staff

The Vickster has requested a delay in his bankruptcy hearing:

The suspended NFL star, appearing by teleconference in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Newport News on Thursday, said he needs more time to file lists of creditors. The 28-year-old also asked to appoint adviser David Talbot as the manager responsible for handling Vick’s affairs while the former Atlanta Falcon serves his time in prison. Court records show that Talbot has received payment so far in the form of a Mercedes-Benz given to him by Vick six weeks ago. A ruling on Vick’s motions is expected July 28.

Desperate times call for desperate measures. Poor thang.

Menace To Society

Posted by Bossip Staff

Believe it or not, that Neanderthal Quinton “Rampage” Jackson got arrested again last night:

Sources say last night an Irvine police car was waved down by people near the place Rampage was staying who said he was acting weird. This, of course, following the insane chase the day before in which the UFC fighter hit several cars in his monster truck and was arrested at gunpoint.

We’re told Irvine cops saw Rampage, deemed him a danger to himself and others, and took him to a hospital for observation. Cops won’t officially confirm if it’s a psychiatric hold.

After the sh*t he pulled the other day, this dude should never have been released from the jump. SMH.

Road Rage Rampage

Posted by Bossip Staff

Former UFC Champ Quinton “Rampage” Jackson snapped while behind the wheel yesterday:

The just-defeated UFC champ was busted yesterday afternoon for alleged felony hit and run. Rampage was on the 55 Freeway in the O.C., hit two cars and got off the freeway.

Rampage then began driving on the center divider. According to the police report, Jackson then drove on the sidewalk, “causing pedestrians to flee for their lives.” He started driving the wrong way on a crowded street, colliding with yet another car in an intersection. As he continued on, running several red lights, his tire disintegrated and he began driving on the rim.

Rampage eventually got to the exclusive Balboa Peninsula in Newport Beach, where he again drove on the sidewalk, “causing pedestrians to flee in terror.”

Eventually, his car came to a stop and he was taken into custody at gunpoint. Cops took him to the Orange County Jail, but they determined he was “medically unfit” to be booked. Cops won’t say if he was high. He’s since been treated and released on $25,000 bail.

This cat was released on bail after endangering all those folks? His crazy ass needs to marinate behind bars for a minute, and have his driving privileges revoked in the process.
