Former NFL wide receiver Chad Johnson and Basketball Wives reality television star Evelyn Lozada are over, but it seems like most people aren’t ready to move on from the controversy that caused the couple to call it quits. Chad Johnson has pleaded no contest to a domestic violence charge involving his then-wife, Evelyn Lozada. Johnson was sentenced to a year’s probation and a counseling course under a plea deal with prosecutors. Johnson also must pay Lozada unspecified restitution.

Chad Johnson is no stranger to domestic violence. The former NFL star was found guilty of battering a woman in 2000, 12 years before he allegedly struck again. According to court records, Johnson was arrested for misdemeanor domestic battery in L.A. on February 7, 2000, just before he began playing football for Oregon State University. Sources close to the case say the victim was his girlfriend at the time, and she told police the football star had slapped her in the face after he accused her of cheating on him. According to court records, Johnson 22 years old at the time pled no contest, and the court found him guilty of domestic battery. Johnson was sentenced to 3 years probation and ordered to serve 45 days in L.A. County Jail. But Johnson struck a deal with the court which allowed him to avoid jail as long as he completed 30 days of graffiti removal work with CalTrans. Johnson was also required to complete a 12 month batterer’s counseling program and ordered to stay 100 yards away from the victim.

Even with Chad’s past legal problems many people still speculate that it was more to the story than an argument over a box of condoms enraging Chad to the point of head butting his star wife. Because of Evelyn’s horrible behavior on Basketball Wives, many began to question Evelyn’s innocence in the whole matter. Some even went as far as saying that Evelyn ruined Chad’s life.

Not too long after being arrested for assaulting Evelyn, Chad seemed to lose everything. He first lost his job as a wide receiver for the Miami Dolphins, then coconut water brand Zico tells ESPN.com that their endorsement deal with Johnson was over, he and Evelyn lost their show that was scheduled to debut on VH1 this Fall, and then he abruptly lost Evelyn and the undisclosed settle he had to pay to her. Totaling Chad Johnson has lost millions due to the assault.

So, what’s next for Chad Johnson? There might be interest once injuries start racking up, but Chad could possibly be looking at a suspension once a team did sign him, so that might hinder a team from agreeing to a contract with him. Especially when receivers like Terrell Owen and Plaxico Burress are sitting on their couches waiting for the same phone call. Chad would be an awesome sports commentator. He’s funny, well spoken, and very knowledge of the game of football. But name a network that would hire Chad just months after pleading no contest on assault charges.
I am not a fan of a man hitting a woman, but I am a fan of Chad Johnson. So, I am cheering for Chad to make a comeback, but it is probably safe to say his future in the NFL is non-existent for a while.•

Lizzo Trying to Manifest Banging Drake After New Song Name-Drop

Published

on

Lizzo says she name-dropped Drake in her new song to turn the tables on an age-old trope of rappers doing the same for women — but it seems she’s actually trying to bang the dude.

During an interview with Zane Lowe, the singer mentioned Drake on her new song with Cardi B, “Rumors,” because she felt it’d be fun to give society a taste of its own medicine — and in this context, that means flipping the script on rappers/male musicians name-dropping fine women in their tunes.

If you didn’t hear the bar yet, it goes … “Last year, I thought I would losе it // Readin’ s*** on the internet // My smoothie cleanse and my diet // No, I ain’t f*** Drake yet (Ha).”

The Drake thing seems to have come out of left field … but Lizzo explained further in the ZL sit-down, jokingly saying she hasn’t quite been able to manifest some bedroom boom with Toronto’s Certified Lover Boy — even though it sounds like she’d love to take a dip.

All kidding aside, Lizzo says she included the line as a way to turn what rappers have often done in music — namely, name-dropping ladies/would-be sexual exploits — upside down on its head. It’s true … fellas have done that for a long time in the genre .

As far as their real-life relationship … Lizzo says she kinda knows Drake, and that he’s super cool.

Still, it seems she does, in fact, want some of what he’s got — at least based on her Twitter activity shortly after this interview aired. She tweeted right at Champagne Papi for the whole world to see, writing … “Hey big head @Drake.” Classic “wyd” vibes for modern dating.

Aubrey hasn’t publicly responded yet … but wouldn’t that be something if he did??? Unfortunately for her, he seems to have his hands full with
Johanna Leia and other things these days.

Boxer Gervonta Davis Involved in Minor Plane Crash, Documents Aftermath

Published

on

Gervonta Davis just, miraculously, walked away from a plane crash relatively unscathed — and it sounds like what’s hurting him the most in the aftermath are his feet … and his caboose.

The professional boxer went live Saturday to document a terrifying encounter he says he and his crew had just gone through after boarding a private jet … which apparently failed to properly take off and crash landed back down to the airport grounds it was trying to leave.

Thankfully, it doesn’t appear the aircraft got very far up before coming back down to Earth — because Gervonta and other passengers seemed more or less okay … with their health and bodies intact.

That’s not to say Gervonta wasn’t feeling some hurt afterwards — on his live feed, he noted that his booty was aching like no other … this while he wrapped his feet in gauze. He’s pretty jovial about the whole thing, which is great to see, but this could’ve easily been way worse.

Gervonta also was able to get some shots of the downed plane, and it sure looks like something went wrong internally. There were also fire engines that showed up on the scene to evaluate the damage and tend to anyone’s injuries. Again, though, most everyone seems to be fine … which is absolutely incredible, because it appears there were even children aboard, based on a photo Gervonta posted shortly before getting on his flight. His video doesn’t capture any kids, though.

It’s unclear what exactly caused the malfunction — but you can hear Gervonta and his friends speculate on what happened … seems like there might’ve been some overheating of some sort. They also appear to be discussing some of the flight maneuvers the pilot(s) were using in the air … and the group seems to think that may have attributed to it going down.

Stay tuned while we here at Prestige try to get a hold of Gervonta’s team for more answers.

Drake Takes Shot at Kanye in New Verse, Calls Him ‘Burnt Out’

Published

on

Drake is stirring the pot again on his rap beef with Kanye West — taking a new shot at the guy in a song he just dropped with Trippie Redd … and it might be the ultimate insult.

The rapper is featured on TR’s new track, “Betrayal,” and at one point in Drizzy’s verse, he brings up Mr. West by name … acknowledging that they are, indeed, still apparently beefing — while also going so far as to call Kanye “burnt out” … and noting it’s irrelevant to him.

Here’s how the Kanye bar goes … “All these fools I’m beefin’ that I barely know // Forty-five, forty-four (Burned out), let it go // Ye ain’t changin’ s*** for me, it’s set in stone.” He adds … “Rollin’ stones, heavy stones (PinkGrillz) // Precious stone, let me make my presence known.”

The “Ye” reference could possibly be interpreted as “they” or “you” — but based on Drake touching Kanye’s exact age (44) … it seems clear he meant the former with some clever word play. The folks over at Genius heard it too … they wrote out the lyric as “Ye.”

Now, for some analysis — as to why Drake is randomly bringing up Kanye again after years have passed since they beefed, with Pusha T in the mix, is anyone’s guess at this point.

However, some people have a theory on these old foes — there’s been speculation of late that Kanye is, perhaps, trying to set up his “Donda” release so that it lines up with Drake’s “Certified Lover Boy” album … which he’s on record as saying would be out by the end of summer at the latest. That’s just a few weeks away … and neither project has dropped.

There’s no evidence to prove it one way or another … but the fact that Kanye continues to delay the release date — with seemingly no end in sight — is curious in this context. That, coupled with the fact that Drake’s going after him anew, is even more eyebrow-raising.

In any case, we’re always here for some new beef. And, if it means more music from these two in the process … we’ll take it and then some. Ball’s in your court, Ye (we think).
