Love & Basketball: Superstar Candace Parker Agrees To Pay Husband Shelden Williams In Their Divorce

Published

Love and Basketball ...

Former Duke men’s basketball star Shelden Williams will reportedly receive a $400,000 alimony check from his wife, WNBA superstar Candace Parker.

TMZ Sports reported Tuesday that Parker would make a one-time alimony payment to Williams, the No. 5 pick in the 2006 NBA draft. Williams played six seasons in the NBA and earned more than $12 million. But Parker – who has been doing studio work for TNT during NBA and NCAA tournament games – is one of the biggest stars in WNBA history. She is a two-time league MVP.

According to a study of WNBA salaries done by Summit Hoops, Parker made $115,000 last season from the Los Angeles Sparks, but published reports have placed Parker well over $1 million annually by playing overseas. That doesn’t include her TV salary and endorsement deals.

Williams played in the NBA from 2006-12 for Atlanta, Boston, Denver, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, Sacramento and Toronto. He had career averages of 4.5 points and 4.3 rebounds.

According to the TMZ report, Parker will not pay any more money to Williams, whom she married in 2008. The two have an 8-year-old daughter and they have agreed on joint legal and physical custody. The couple will also profit from the sale of their former home in Encino, Calif., which recently sold for $3.75 million.

According to New York Times On Thursday, federal prosecutors in Brooklyn accused Mr. Kelly of bribing an Illinois government employee in 1994 in order to obtain a fake ID for Aaliyah, according to the indictment and a person familiar with the matter.

The fake ID was to be used to obtain a marriage license that listed her age as 18, the person familiar said.

The new allegation expands on an existing racketeering indictment filed in New York against Mr. Kelly that accuses him of sexually exploiting underage girls and coercing them into illegal sexual activity. This year, Mr. Kelly has been criminally charged in several jurisdictions over sex abuse of minors.

Billy Dee Williams Comes Out As Gender Fluid At 82

Published

With the new #StarWars movie on the way (I know y’all see those baby Yoda memes everywhere), fans are looking forward to surprises and recently, they received one about one of the film’s stars off-screen. In an interview with Esquire, actor Billy Dee Williams, most known for playing the beloved Star Wars character Lando Calrissian, revealed his gender fluidity at the age of 82.

Billy, who also starred in “Lady Sings the Blues” and “Batman,” described his legacy as a “colorful character who doesn’t take himself or herself too seriously.

“I never tried to be anything except myself,” Billy told Esquire. “And you see I say ‘himself’ and ‘herself,’ because I also see myself as feminine as well as masculine…I’m a very soft person. I’m not afraid to show that side of myself.”

It also appears Billy saw his Lando character in that same light. In his interview with Billy, Esquire’s Matt Miller pointed out how Donald Glover, who played a young Calrissian in last year’s “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” described the character as pansexual. 

“Yeah, he’s coming on to everybody,” Glover said of Calrissian during an interview last year with SiriusXM after “Solo” writers confirmed the character’s pansexuality, according to the Huffington Post.
