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.
Will Smith has begun the promo run for his up-coming sci-fi epic “After Earth” but he can’t jump ahead to the future just yet. In a conversation with EW the megastar answered once and for all why he turned down the titular role in last year’s slavery themed revenge western, “Django: Unchained.” Jamie Foxx was eventually given the role of the freed slave turned bounty hunter, but it was originally offered to Smith. The “Men In Black” star admits that he felt the story was “brilliant” but that it was “Just not for me.” But why? “Django wasn’t the lead, so it was like, I need to be the lead. The other character was the lead,” he confessed, referring to Christopher Waltz Dr. King . Smith added that he wanted Django to have more control over his fate. “I was like, ‘No, Quentin, I need to kill the bad guy!” Can you blame him? After this many years in Hollywood Will Smith has earned the right not to play second fiddle to anyone. Ever since it was revealed that Smith turned down “The Matrix” to do “Wild Wild West” every script he’s passed on has come under scrutiny. But we’re pretty sure that he took one look at who ultimately took down the slave master and realized that Django wasn’t quite what it was purported to be.
Rappers, careful what you boast and brag about. Future’sfirst baby mama is taking the struggle falsetto king back to court over child support payments. She wants more cash. In early January, Future came to terms with Jessica Smith over child support payments. A DNA test proved Future, born Nayvadius Wilburn Cash, was the father of a 10-year-old son. Citing a monthly income of $16,516, Future agreed he would pay $1,662 a month in child support. However, Smith alleges that shortly thereafter the “Same Damn Time” rapper claimed to carry 25 large on his person at all times, reports TMZ. Note: This not that safest things to do in the hood, just saying. Smith felts that she was duped, and immediately filed paperwork to get their child support terms updated. Smith claims Future makes $50K a month, which if the math stays the same would mean about $5,000 in child support payments.
A couple of points to be made here. Rappers lie about their net worth all the time. But Future is making bank considering he is a hot commodity in the game and even has penning hits songs for Rihanna to his credit. Also worth noting, it seems like Future didn’t know about his son until Smith came out the woodwork and sued him last year. Where was she when he was broke? But hey, all the money will be going to the child, right? Just saying. Future’s new album, Future Hendrix, is due out later this year.
Pamela Smith, the woman who accused NBA legend Michael Jordan of fathering her son had her day in court today. Smith was due to go before Judge Bensonetta Tipton Lane at 2 p.m. today. Smith’s attorney, Randy Kessler, is confident that Judge Tipton Lane won’t dimiss the case.
According to Rollingout Magazine
Kessler said in a statement to press, “We are honored to have been asked to represent Ms. Smith who has been unable to resolve this matter herself. The vicious statements made in Mr. Jordan’s legal documents will be responded to in her own forthcoming pleadings, but at this time Ms. Smith wants to be clear. Her former husband Mr. Reynolds has not been involved in her child’s life since the divorce in 2005, has never paid support for the child and has shown no interest in the child. The claims by Respondent’s counsel that ‘It is troubling that Smith now inflicts measurable harm upon her son while seeking to deprive her son’s father Reynolds, of the rights and privileges of joint legal custody’ are completely unfounded and meant only to disparage her. Our client feels that Mr. Jordan had numerous opportunities to resolve this matter by having a simple conversation with her. If he claims he is not the father, a simple $300 saliva test could likely resolve the issue instead of further court or public involvement.”
Jordan and Smith were involved in a relationship in 1995 – while he was married to his first wife Juanita.
