PERSISTENCE PAYS OFF! :)
According to Mediatakeout.com there is a new TOP CELEBRITY couple . .. NBA All Star KEVIN DURANT . .. and R&B singer LeToya Luckett (formerly of Destiny’s Child).
According to insiders Kevin has been TRYING FOR MONTHS to get with LeToya – but to no avail. As LeToya had been exploring the possibility of getting back together with her ex, professional baseball player MATT KEMP. But in the end, KD’s persistence paid off. After MONTHS of wearing her down – LeToya EVENTUALLY agreed to go out on a date. Then one date led to two . . . . and now they’re OFFICIALLY a couple!! And we’re told that the two are “very happy together”. Kevin is 23 years old . . . Letoya is 31.
Yesterday news came out that Dallas Cowboys receiver DEZ BRYANT was arrested on some kind of “family violence charge.” And now we know what happened. Allegedly.
Dez is accused of hitting his mother Angela in the face with a baseball hat. Not a BAT . . . a HAT. He also allegedly pulled her hair and grabbed her by the shirt so hard that he ripped her bra. Angela called police to her house in DeSoto, Texas on Saturday, saying she and Dez got into an argument and she asked him to leave. That’s when things got physical. Angela told the 911 operator, quote, “My son has assaulted me. He’s here now. He won’t go home. I keep telling him to go, he won’t go.”
She added, quote, “I can’t let him keep doing me like this. I’m tired. I’m gonna put an end to it today.” Angela complained of pain in her wrists, hands, arms and chest, and police observed bruising on her upper arm.
Amy Winehouse fans could see the late singer come back to life in hologram form after her family gave its blessing to a technological reincarnation. Slain rapper Tupac Shakur came back from the grave to ‘perform’ at the Coachella music festival in California earlier this year.
Other tragic stars’ relatives, including the family of Michael Jackson and George Harrison, have ruled out bringing their loved ones back to the stage – but Mitch Winehouse is open to a hologram concert by his daughter. He is quoted as saying “The most important thing to Amy was the music and I’m sure a lot of people would like to hear her sing again. ”It depends on what Amy’s fans want as a way to keep her memory alive. If it’s a book, an album or a hologram, then so be it.”
However, he insists he would not want to see the footage: “I can’t watch Amy on TV or listen to her songs, it’s really difficult.”
