Celebrity Gossip Heard All Over The Web

His Airness Ties The Knot Again!

Michael Jordan finally married his longtime girlfriend over the weekend and everyone that’s anyone was in attendance. The NBA legend made Yvette Prieto, a model, his legal other half in front of tons of witnesses in Pam Beach, Florida.

Michael-Joedan-and-his-wife-Yvette-PrietoAmong those in attendance which numbered approximately 500? Spike Lee, Patrick Ewing (formerly of the New York Knicks), and another sports great, tennis star Tiger Woods. Tiger did not bring his girlfriend of the moment, Lindsey Vonn, even though she was invited. I guess they didn’t want to be anywhere near a marriage ceremony together. This is the second marriage for Michael Jordan and the first for Yvette. Congratulations to the couple and let’s hope this one lasts forever!

Mike Tyson is the Prostitute Hunter

Mike Tyson, the prostitute hunter? You don’t say. We know Mike is a tad on the cray cray side. He likes to eat ears for gawd’s sake. Well on the Today show this morning, we found out that the boxing legend is doing a one-man Broadway show called Undisputed Truth. Mike and his play’s director Spike Lee sat down to talk about his troubled past of drug abuse and his jail terms and women.

Tyson explained, “I [finally] threw up the white flag. There [were] too many prison cells. Too many jails. Too many lawyers. Too many lawsuits. Too many bankruptcies. Too many women. Too many venereal diseases. Too many everything. I want to live a different life… I was a prostitute hunter.”

So what will this Broadway play do for Tyson’s image? Lee told Ann Curry, “[He will show] the same courage he displayed in the ring. I think it will take just as much courage to go on stage, when you bare your soul to the audience. It’s captivating.”

Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth had a limited run in Las Vegas earlier this year.

As long as there is no ear gnawing, I think I would possibly check this one out.

Spike Lee Reaches Settlement With Elderly Couple

Spike Lee has agreed to dish out some dough to that elderly couple in Florida whose address he published on the internet in connection with the death of Trayvon Martin.

Sure he apologized, but he thought that wasn’t quite going to cut it.

Cripes after Lee tweeted their address of the home of Elaine and David McClaine, they had to flee their home after their address was published because peeps were going cray. Their son is also named George Zimmerman, but not THE George Zimmerman.

The couple’s attorney, Matt Morgan, has now revealed that Lee has offered them compensation. Morgan says, “At this point in time, we have come to an agreement with Spike Lee and his attorneys, and at this point, the matter is fully resolved. Spike has agreed to compensate the McClains for their loss and for the disruption into their lives. He’s taken full responsibility.”

AND Lee even phoned the couple and Elaine McClain was happy for the apology. “He was really kind. And when he called us, you could just tell he really felt bad about it. And it was just a slip, and I just know that he really, really has been concerned.”

I’m sure the big fat check wasn’t so bad either.

Spike Lee Tweets Address of Wrong George Zimmerman!

We’re all pissed off at the whole Trayvon Martin situation, but Spike Lee went a little bit too far in getting attention. Instead of doing a little extra research, Lee put an elderly couple in danger by Tweeting THEIR address instead of George Zimmerman’s. Well we sure as hell know at least TWO people who won’t be standing in line to watch a Spike Lee film.

Sure Spike has apologized to the Florida couple who says they were forced to leave their home when a Twitter posting that Lee helped spread listed THEIR address as that of the man who shot Trayvon Martin!

Sure Elaine and David McClain have a son named William George Zimmerman who lived with them in the mid-1990’s but he is NO RELATION to the 28-year-old George Zimmerman who shot Martin on February 26th.

Lee tweeted late Wednesday, “I Deeply Apologize To The McClain Family For Retweeting Their Address. It Was A Mistake. Please Leave The McClain’s In Peace.”

Got dammit, Spike! That’s pretty damn ballsy! I’m thinking he’s going to need to do more than an apology for these 70-year-olds. Cripes, they probably had a got damn heart attack in the process of being stalked.
