Is Rihanna to blame for J.R. Smith‘s struggles during the Knicks/Pacers playoff series? Some Knicks fans out there think so. Rih-Rih and J.R. were spotted partying together after a Knicks win in Game 2 of the series last week and he hasn’t been the same since. So one Knicks fan in particular who goes by the name @peruvian_gawd took it upon himself to call Rihanna out for it on Instagram today. And, according to a screen grab that he posted to his own Instagram page a little while ago, Rihanna responded by going in on the Knicks and J.R.
J.R. Smith needs to pay his bills. The Knicks guard has been ordered to pay $48,000 for a pair of Black Jesus pieces and other jewelry. It’s not a bill collector telling Smith to pay up, it’s a judge.
Don’t mess with Black Jesus … or YOU WILL PAY … just ask Knicks stud J.R. Smith, whose A$$ just lost a $48,000 lawsuit involving a diamond necklace that features an Afro-American rendition of the messiah. A jewelry company called Lemmerman’s sued Smith, claiming he ordered a bunch of bling back in 2010 — including a diamond chain, two Black Jesus pendants and some earrings — totaling $25,500 … but never paid. We’re told one Jesus pendant and chain cost roughly $15,000 alone. Lemmerman’s sued for $48,101 — which includes the jewelry bill plus interest and attorney’s fees — but Smith never responded to the suit … so a judge ruled in Lemmerman’s favor. Smith has now been ordered to pay the $48,000 asap … or else. Calls to Smith’s people weren’t returned.
Expect the NBA to make sure J.R. Smith put his Twitter game on chill sooner than later. A direct message exchange the New York Knicks shooting guard had with a potential
paramour jump off leaked and from the looks of it he clearly wastes no time when trying to bed a fan. ”You trying to get the pipe?,” asked Smith after a few inconsequential exchanges with the girl. Hey, she did use a couple of smiley faces (just saying). Deadspin reports that the girl who shared the DM conversation she had with Smith, is in high school. This isn’t the first time Smith’s antics have drawn fire. He infamously posted a booty shot of Joe Budden’s ex-girlfriend and current Love & Hip Hop New York cast member Tahiry Jose on Twitter. The cost of that post, besides Tahiry ending their relationshp, was a cool $25,000 fine from the NBA. But hey, who is to say Smith isn’t starting a line of tobacco pipes? Well, he actually responded in kind to all the social media slander by posting a photo of tobacco pipes to his Instagram with the hashtag #YouTryingToGetThePipe.
