Jesse Williams’ Wife Says He Has Violent Temper, Wants Sole Custody

The custody battle between actor Jesse Williams and his soon to be ex-wife is getting very ugly. In court documents, Aryn Drake-Lee says Williams has anger issues, among other descriptors, and wants sole custody of their children. 

Reports TMZ:

Aryn Drake-Lee has unloaded on the “Grey’s Anatomy” star, demanding sole custody for a variety of reasons. She says the children are being emotionally compromised because Jesse has exposed them to at least one intimate partner and possibly more. She wants the judge to order him to keep girlfriends away from the kids until he dates them for 6 months.

Aryn goes on, claiming Jesse has a violent temper and cites a road rage incident last month with his next-door neighbor. She says after an argument the neighbor flipped off Jesse, and he then “aggressively pursued him in his car” with their 2 kids inside. She says Jesse threatened to kill him.

She’s also pissed off that Jesse posts pics of their kids on social media and says he’s doing it as a “buffer for the negative talk about him in the media.”

Keep in mind that this is all in court documents, so it’s not like Drake-Lee went public with the sole cause of smearing Williams.

However, since the docs are public record, all the tea will be exposed.

Meanwhile, despite claiming she had nothing to do with the dissolution of his marriage, it seems like Williams is dating Minka Kelly.

Fultz names Lonzo as toughest opponent in college, wants BBB gear

Game recognize game.

Markelle Fultz named Lonzo Ball as the toughest opponent he lined up against in college, and clamored for some Big Baller Brand T-shirts during a recent talk show streamed on Twitch.

“In college? Lonzo Ball,” Fultz said. “I’m tryna get some Big Baller Brand T-shirts. Gotta hit him up before we leave.”

Fultz and Ball, the top two picks in this summer's draft, played against each other just once in their lone collegiate seasons. Ball scored 22 points, grabbed six rebounds, recorded five assists, and poached four steals in UCLA's 41-point win over Washington. Fultz had 25 points, six rebounds, five assists, and three steals of his own but his team was roundly humbled.

As for the request for BBB apparel? Fultz is signed to Nike, so the company can't be thrilled with Fultz's endorsement.

Jenelle Evans: My Son is Being Violent Because He Wants to Live with Me!

After years and years of watching Teen Mom 2, we all know quite a bit about Jenelle Evans, don't we?

For instance, we know that she's one of those people who tend to create their own version of events, reality be damned.

You can see several examples of this in her new book — remember how she claimed that her mother tricked her into giving up custody of her oldest son, Jace, even though she was the best mom ever?

Meanwhile, we all remember seeing how it really played out in early seasons of the show, and we definitely remember her willingly signing over custody to the long-suffering Barbara Evans.

Still, Jenelle insists on trying to paint herself in a positive light, even if she doesn't deserve it.

And if you still don't know what we're talking about, then just check out this truly bizarre deleted scene from this week's episode of Teen Mom 2.

As you may remember from the episode, Jace has been acting out recently — so much that he threw a toy at Barbara and bruised her face.

Jenelle and Babs talked about getting him into therapy, which seems like a good idea. The poor kid has been through a lot in his eight years.

But in this clip, Teen Mom's hottest mess reveals some additional details about the situation.

Things start off with Jenelle and her fiancé, David Eason, having a little chat in a restaurant while baby Ensley sleeps soundly in her car seat.

They talk about taking some photos with all the kids this weekend, and she mentions that she's excited for Jace to meet Ensley for the first time.

Then she tells him that "He freaked out a school and he threw something at my mom, and like busted her nose."

"And she, like, doesn't understand why he's freaking out, and she calls me and says 'Oh, he's being bad' and everything."

"And then I'm like 'Well, I got my hands tied, what do you want me to do? I'm not there to discipline him and you don't let me have him, so …'"

She says that Barbara has been telling Jace's teachers that she doesn't know why he's "freaking out," and that "I feel bad for him because it's like no one knows the truth and they're believing my mom."

If you're wondering what the hell she's talking about, you're not alone.

But hang on, she gets to her point real quick …

"I know the truth," she tells David. "I know why he's freaking out. He's freaking out because he wants to live here. And that's why he's being bad."

… Really, Jenelle? That's why Jace is acting out and being violent, because he wants to live with you?

She says that she hopes Jace isn't mad at her because he still doesn't live with her, and that "I want Jace to come live with me so bad, he doesn't even know the truth."

What truth?!

The clip ends with Jenelle telling David that she's "trying everything in my power" to get Jace back.

It's just so bizarre that she thinks that her son is behaving the way he is because he wants to live with her … like is that really the scenario that makes the most sense?

Maybe he's reacting to the years and years of seeing Jenelle scream and yell at Barbara — maybe she's never shown her respect, and he's learning that.

Or maybe he's starting to realize how unstable his childhood has been, especially since his mother just had another baby when she still doesn't have custody of him.

There are a lot of reasons why poor Jace could be acting out, but a desperation to live with Jenelle doesn't seem super likely.

Watch the odd scene below:

SVG wants Drummond to dominate defensive end like DeAndre Jordan

Stan Van Gundy is hoping for big things from Andre Drummond next season.

After watching his starting center struggle in 2016-17, the Pistons' head coach wants Drummond to channel his inner-DeAndre Jordan and focus his energy on defense during the upcoming campaign.

"The step, to me, for Andre is to do a little bit of what DeAndre Jordan does and dominate the game at the defensive end of the floor," Van Gundy told Keith Langlois of NBA.com. "Become that All-Defense type of guy. Because he’s already a historically great rebounder and to add to that becoming a great defender and build his game from there and everything to be built around the basket – his pick and rolls, going to the rim, running the floor, all of that."

Van Gundy believes that Drummond’s recent weight loss could help him significantly next season, giving him the endurance needed to dominate for longer stretches.

“He’s worked hard this summer to get himself in better shape and be able to play with more energy for longer periods of time,” Van Gundy said. “I think that’s the biggest step he could take this summer beyond any skill thing.”

The 23-year-old averaged 13.6 points, 13.8 rebounds, 1.5 steals, and 1.1 blocks on 53 percent shooting for the Pistons this past season.

Former Cavs GM explains why Irving wants to be traded

Former Cleveland Cavaliers general manager David Griffin worked closely with and had the trust of Kyrie Irving before he was let go, so there are few who could better explain the apparent rift between the point guard and organization.

Griffin appeared on ESPN's "The Jump" on Monday to provide perspective on why Irving wants to be traded away from the Cavaliers.

"This is a guy who handled the situation exactly like he was supposed to," Griffin said. "He went to Dan Gilbert privately, told him he would be happier somewhere elsewhere.

“The absolute worst thing this guy could have done was pretend to be all-in, and sink the ship from within. Most guys don’t have the courage to do what he did. That’s not youth and ignorance. That’s a little bit more courage than what people gave him credit for.”

Irving played an instrumental role in helping Cleveland attain its first championship in five decades, but overwhelming success doesn't necessarily mean Irving was happy.

Griffin signed Irving to a five-year deal in 2014 to be the featured player for the Cavaliers, only to be usurped soon after by James' homecoming.

"This is a guy who recruited LeBron (James), (Gordon) Hayward, and a host of free agents when he decided to sign and stay in Cleveland," Griffin said. "And all of a sudden, LeBron came back.

“So he was sold a totally different situation than he’s actually in, and he worked very well in, he won a championship in. I see this as him looking for a fit for himself now to take the next step of his career.”

Griffin explains Irving simply wants a chance to test his own abilities, a chance he was denied in 2014. That opportunity simply wasn't available if he continued to share the court with James.

"This is a guy who wants to know how good he can be," Griffin said. "LeBron casts a very large shadow over an organization and most of it is really, really positive. You know you're expected to win a championship.

"But what it doesn't always allow is for a player like Kyrie to test his boundaries and see how good he can really be, and, 'Can I actually be the front man for a team like that?'"

Griffin added: "He just wanted to put himself in a position, I think, where to find out exactly what he has as a 25-year-old entering his prime."

Report: Cutler wants play for Dolphins, sides have discussed deal

Momentum for a Jay Cutler return continues to pick up in a hurry.

Just hours after it was reported Friday that the Dolphins have already reached out to the veteran quarterback, a source told Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post that Cutler indeed wants to resume his NFL career and reunite with Miami head coach Adam Gase.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport adds that the Dolphins have discussed a potential deal with representatives for Cutler, who is the top choice for any addition made under center.

The connection between player and team began to take shape when the Dolphins lost Ryan Tannehill to a potentially significant knee injury in Thursday’s training camp practice.

Cutler announced his retirement from football in May, repeatedly stating over the following weeks that he was content to move on to broadcasting without looking back.

The Dolphins may present the perfect situation for Cutler’s quick return to the field, though, since he’s familiar with Gase’s offensive system and would be joining a team with its sights set on another playoff berth.

In Gase’s lone season as offensive coordinator with the Chicago Bears, Cutler played at what may have been the most efficient level of his career. Despite his No. 1 receiver being forced in and out of the lineup due to injury, the Vanderbilt product connected on 64.4 percent of passes for 3,659 yards, 21 touchdowns, and 11 interceptions.

Eckersley opens broadcast saying last few weeks were ‘brutal,’ wants to move on

NESN broadcaster and Hall of Famer Dennis Eckersley returned to the booth at Fenway Park on Thursday and acknowledged that the last few weeks have been difficult.

"I don't want to bebop around it, it's brutal really," Eckersley said of the events following a highly publicized confrontation with Boston Red Sox starter David Price. "It's a very unfortunate set of circumstances, but I think everybody wants to move on. I'm the guy who wants to move on. I want to say the fans have been great. The support that they've given me is incredible. But lets move on, the Red Sox are trying to win."

Price confronted Eckersley during a team flight in mid-June for being too critical of his Red Sox teammates while serving on the broadcast.

The left-hander added that Eckersley needs to show his face around the clubhouse more. While it seems no conversation has taken place since, Price acknowledged he would chat with Eckersley when the two meet face to face.

Porzingis calls New York ‘home,’ wants Melo to stay

Kristaps Porzingis and Carmelo Anthony were both on the trading block not too long ago, but now only the latter's departure seems likely.

If it were up to Porzingis, though, Anthony would stick with him on the New York Knicks. The two are close as a result of Anthony taking the 7-foot Latvian under his wing after New York drafted him fourth overall in 2015.

"He's an All-Star, an incredible player, and I've learned so much from him," Porzingis told NBA.com's Shaun Powell during the league's tour of Johannesburg.

"There's still so much for me to learn from him. I would love to have him around and keep playing alongside him. But it is what it is. It's a business. If it ends, well … I don't know, it's out of my hands. I'm really thankful for these couple of years I've been with him, just seeing how he works during the summer. It proves he wants to win and he wants to be great. I'm sure he'll make the right decision for himself."

There was no shortage of extracurriculars in Gotham last season, whether it was the public feud between Anthony and team president Phil Jackson, Derrick Rose going MIA, or Charles Oakley's removal from MSG and subsequent arrest. Between that and the losing – the Knicks missed the playoffs for the fourth year in a row – few could blame Porzingis for skipping his team exit meeting.

But that drew the ire of Jackson, who then considered trading Porzingis, but ultimately parted ways with the organization himself. Even with the Zen Master gone, Anthony reportedly wants out. His contract has one guaranteed year remaining and a no-trade clause he'd reportedly waive to join the Houston Rockets.

Porzingis, meanwhile, appears intent on staying put in New York despite the rough start to his pro career.

“So far it’s been tough in New York, but my journey is only beginning and I hope to stay there my whole career, so as a city we can have some fun and win some games and do something big,” Porzingis said.

“For me, it’s now home.”

The 22-year-old indicated a few months ago that he wants to stay with the Knicks as long as they can build a contender. He told Powell he’s still hopeful about that.

“I can envision (a championship someday) and see it,” he said. “But we’re still a long way from there. As we get better, if we can all see that goal at the end and work towards it, anything can happen.”

Porzingis put up 18.1 points, 7.2 rebounds, two blocks, and 1.5 assists per game in 2016-17 for the Knickerbockers.

Houston Nutt wants more than an apology from Ole Miss

At first, all Houston Nutt wanted from his former employer was an apology, but now that list of demands may have grown to include something further.

Ole Miss has yet to satisfy Nutt's demand for a public apology for alleged false information spread about him in January 2016, and Nutt's attorney, Thomas Mars, told Pat Forde of Yahoo Sports that his client will now be seeking further compensation.

Mars also told Antonio Morales of The Clarion Ledger that the amount of compensation that would satisfy his client would have to be on par with the evidence their case has brought to light in the matter.

“It’s difficult to answer that question without knowing when that might happen, if ever, and what other significant evidence we’ll develop in the meantime,” Mars said. “Just in the past few weeks, for instance, we unexpectedly uncovered some very relevant and helpful evidence that we weren’t even looking for at the time.

“That information, and any other new evidence we find, would factor into our calculations of what we’d consider reasonable compensation for Coach Nutt.”

Part of the evidence that Mars alludes to in his comments is the phone call that was unearthed on former head coach Hugh Freeze’s cell phone that ultimately led to his resignation.

Alice Clark, vice chancellor of university relations at Ole Miss, adamantly professed the school's innocence in the matter, saying Ole Miss has no reason to apologize to Nutt.

“Generally, in legal proceedings, the University of Mississippi allows its formal court filings to speak on its behalf,” Clark said. “But to be clear, this case has no merit, and there is no reason to apologize. Further, it is clear Mr. Nutt’s suit seeks far more than an apology.”
