Beyonce Mystery Biter is Sanaa Lathan, According to Tiffany Haddish Sources

Image
Multiple sources tell TMZ, Tiffany Haddish has told multiple people the culprit is Sanaa.

One source said it was not an aggressive bite ... it was playful and noninvasive, but still caught Beyonce off guard.

Sanaa tweeted a faint denial, saying "Y'all are funny. Under no circumstances did I bite Beyonce and if I did it would've have been a love bite."

The incident in question went down in December, at an after-party for Jay-Z's 4:44 concert at The Forum.

The story goes ... Sanaa was talking to Jay in a way that made Bey uncomfortable. Beyonce went over to Sanaa who brushed off any insinuation of inappropriate conduct and then gave her a jokey bite.

Suspects in Dino Melaye gun case escape from police custody


Police in Lokoja said on Wednesday that the two suspects that named Sen. Dino Melaye as the supplier of guns to them had escaped from custody. The Commissioner of Police in the state, Mr Ali Janga, disclosed this at a press conference in Lokoja. Janga said that the two suspects, Kabiru Seidu alias Osama and Nuhu Salisu alias Small, escaped at about 3:21 a.m. at the A Police Division in Lokoja where they were being kept in lawful custody.

According to him, four other suspects escaped along with Seidu and Salisu, bringing the total number of fleeing suspects to six. He said both Seidu and Salisu escaped on Wednesday when they were supposed to be arraigned before a Lokoja Federal High Court alongside Melaye and Mr Mohammed Audu who was also named by the suspects as their sponsor.

The commissioner identified Aliyu Isa , Adams Suleiman, Emmanuel Audu and Musa Mohammed as four other suspects that escaped from custody.

Howard's Record-Setting Night Leads Charlotte to 3⃣rd Straight W

Image
Dwight Howard continued to etch his name in the Charlotte record books, scoring 18 points and bringing down a game-best 23 rebounds in the Hornets 102-98 victory over the Mavericks on Saturday in Dallas.

Howard set the franchise’s all-time, single-season rebounding mark, passing Larry Johnson’s 899 boards as Charlotte picked up its third-straight win. Kemba Walker scored a game-high 24 points and came up big for the Hornets on both ends of the court in the fourth quarter to help secure the win.

Warriors Lose Curry for At Least 3⃣ weeks

Image
The Golden State Warriors have a significant crack in their championship foundation. Yet, they do not believe that foundation has shattered.

Warriors guard Stephen Curry will miss the final 10 regular-season games and possibly the opening of the playoffs, the team announced Saturday after an MRI confirmed a Grade 2 MCL sprain in his left knee. Curry was injured in Friday’s night victory over Atlanta when teammate JaVale McGee tumbled into him.

The Warriors ruled Curry out for at least three weeks, which marks the same day the NBA playoffs start (April 14). The Warriors will have clarity on Curry’s postseason availability when they reevaluate him then, but he could return as early as in the first round.

“You also keep it in perspective,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said before the results were available. “It could be a lot worse.”

Rockets Sail Past Pelicans, Set Franchise Record with 59th Win

Image
James Harden is certain the Houston Rockets won’t let up in their last nine regular-season games despite holding a 4 1/2 game lead over Golden State for the top seed in the Western Conference.
“The edge is going to be there no matter what,” he said. “We haven’t done anything. We don’t have time to relax.”
Harden scored 27 points in three quarters and the Rockets routed the New Orleans Pelicans 114-91 on Saturday night for their eighth straight victory.
The NBA-leading Rockets improved to 59-14 to overtake the 1993-94 championship team for the most wins in franchise history.
“It was just another win,” Eric Gordon said. “We have high expectations for one another.”
Houston never trailed and already had a huge lead to start the fourth before scoring seven straight points early in the period to make it 92-63 with 10 minutes remaining. Clint Capela had four points and a steal to lead Houston in that stretch. Capela finished with 18 points, 16 rebounds, three steals and tied a career high w…

Juventus could be without half of their starters for Real Madrid first leg

Image
Massimiliano Allegri's preparation for the Champions League quarter-final against Real Madrid has not exactly gone to plan, with several of his players suffering injury issues.

Already the Italian coach knew that he wouldn't be able to count on Medhi Benatia or Miralem Pjanic, as both players were booked against Tottenham and must now complete a yellow card accumulation suspension.

Then there was the news that Alex Sandro had picked up an injury on Brazil duty, one which saw him fly home and which is expected to rule him out of the first leg against Los Blancos.

Giorgio Chiellini similarly had to leave the Italy camp early due to a thigh injury, although he does still have a chance of making it.

The Turin based club even stated that his injury is "not serious", but Allegri doesn't yet know for certain if the defender will be available.

As if that wasn't troubling enough, Sami Khedira then went down holding his knee in Germany's 1-1 draw with Spain.

'Incredibly intelligent' Ibrahimovic will become a billionaire - Raiola

Image
Zlatan Ibrahimovic's off-the-field investments and "incredible" intelligence will make him a billionaire, according to his agent Mino Raiola.

The Sweden international has enjoyed a glittering career to date, winning league titles in the Netherlands, Italy, Spain and France, while he also won the Europa League and the EFL Cup at Manchester United.

Raiola boasts an array of stars in his client list, including Mario Balotelli, Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku.

But the Italian super-agent, who earned a staggering €27 million from Pogba's £89m (€105m) transfer to Old Trafford from Juventus, insists that Ibrahimovic has the business nous to outstrip their wealth.

"Zlatan’s the cleverest of them all – and the richest," Raiola, who speaks with Ibrahimovic four times a day, told Dutch magazine Quote .

"He has it within himself to be worth £1bn. He’s incredibly intelligent and active in the market. I only have to tell him something once.

Tuchel has held Arsenal talks' - Bayern legend Matthaus confirms Gunners reports

Image
Thomas Tuchel has held talks over replacing Arsene Wenger as Arsenal manager, Bayern Munich legend Lothar Matthaus has confirmed.

Reports in Germany have claimed former Borussia Dortmund boss Tuchel has rejected an offer from Bayern to succeed Jupp Heynckes at the end of the season.

It is claimed the 44-year-old expects to become the new Arsenal manager, although Paris Saint-Germain are also said to be interested in him as a replacement for Unai Emery.

Germany and Bayern great Matthaus thinks Tuchel would be the right choice for Bayern but claims he has already been "in touch" with the Gunners.

"You know, I'm a journalist too, we have to make headlines every day," he told Omnisport following a match between Liverpool and Bayern legends at Anfield on Saturday.

"I think Thomas Tuchel can be the favourite, [the] ex-coach from Borussia Dortmund, but I know he's in touch with Arsenal and nobody knows what happens behind the doors."

Under-fire Mourinho attacks 'brainless' Manchester United critics

Image
Jose Mourinho believes "people with a brain" should be able to see that Manchester United's recent issues are a result of being in "transition".

Although United have only failed to win four of their last 15 games across all competitions, performances have fallen well short of expectations.

The most striking failure in recent months was the 2-1 defeat at home to Sevilla in the Champions League round of 16 , a defeat which eliminated United from Europe's elite competition.

"I understand the frustration, I understand the sadness of being knocked out in the Champions League, but I don't understand anything more than that," Mourinho told CNN .

"In the history of football all around the world, not just in England, you had the biggest clubs with the moments of transition, you have the biggest clubs with moments of continuous and permanent victories and these are phases in the club.

"And I think really at this moment looking to us in the Pr…

Bale becomes Wales' record goalscorer with hat-trick against China

Image
Gareth Bale has replaced Ian Rush as Wales' record goalscorer thanks to a superb hat-trick against China.

Taking to the field from kick-off in Ryan Giggs' first game as boss of the national team, Bale made an swift impact at Nanning's Guangxi Sports Center Stadium by crafting an excellent second-minute solo goal.

Some generous defending from the hosts midway through the first half of the China Cup match allowed the Real Madrid man to pull level with Liverpool great Rush on 28 goals in Wales colours.

A brace from Burnley striker Sam Vokes either side of a stylish finish from Hull City's on-loan Liverpool youngster Harry Wilson piled further misery on China and Bale slotted home to make it 6-0 - claiming the matchball and usurping Rush at the top of his country's all-time standings.

Bale's treble is his first for Wales and, according to Opta, he is the first player to net three in one game since Robbie Earnshaw did at home against Scotland in 2004.

🇳🇬FG Blasts PDP For Doubting Abduction, Release Of Dapchi Schoolgirls

The Federal Government has taken a swipe at the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), following the release of the Dapchi schoolgirls abducted by Boko Haram terrorists. Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, faulted the party’s reaction to the girls’ release on Thursday in a statement by his media aide, Segun Adeyemi.

The abducted girls regained freedom on Wednesday, more than four weeks after the insurgents invaded the Government Girls Science and Technical College, Dapchi, in Yobe State. Of the 110 girls snatched by Boko Haram on February 19, the government said 104 were returned by the terrorists with six unaccounted for. In its reaction, the PDP accused the Federal Government and the All Progressives Congress (APC) of ‘scripting’ the abduction of the schoolgirls.

The party had also called on the United Nations and the International Criminal Court (ICC) to investigate the incident, which it said was a scripted drama by the APC in the bid to seek re-election in 2019. Mr Mohamm…

OFFICIAL💥: Zlatan Ibrahimovic Leaves Man Utd

Image
Zlatan Ibrahimovic has left Manchester United after the club agreed to terminate his contract early.

Ibrahimovic, 36, scored 29 goals in 53 appearances for the Red Devils but has played only seven times since damaging cruciate ligaments in April.

The former Sweden striker's contract was due to expire in the summer.

He is yet to announce his plans but there has been intense speculation recently that he will join Major League Soccer outfit LA Galaxy.

It has been suggested he could come out of international retirement for this summer's World Cup.

"Everyone at the club would like to thank Zlatan for his contribution to the team since his arrival and wishes him well for the future," United said in a statement.


Jim Carrey Savages ‘Madman’ Donald Trump In New Controversial Artwork

Image
Jim Carrey, 56, is at it again! Just two days after he debuted his painting of President Donald Trump, 71, dressed as a witch, he’s back with another unflattering piece of work. This time, the Bruce Almighty actor shared a piece depicting Trump’s attorney Joe diGenova as a troll doll hanging from the rear-view mirror of a car driven by POTUS. “Lawyer and lucky charm Joe diGenovia hopes to put Dirty Donald’s troubles in the rearview mirror. But the objects in the mirror are closer than they appear,” he tweeted with the pic. And by objects in the mirror, Jim is clearly referring to The St. Basil’s Cathedral in Moscow and the Russian Federation’s flag reflected in the painting. Pretty shady, right?

Queen Latifah’s Mom Dies After Struggling With Heart Condition

Image
Our hearts go out to Queen Latifah, 48, as she is mourning the loss of her mother Rita Owens. After battling a chronic heart condition for many years, Rita died on Wednesday. “It is with a heavy heart that I share the news my mother, Rita Owens, passed away today. Anyone that has ever met her knows what a bright light while she was on this earth. She was gentle, but strong, sweet, but sassy, worldly but pragmatic, a woman of great faith and certainly the love of my life,” Queen said in a statement.

Just a few days before her death, Latifah shared an Instagram video asking people to pray for her mother’s recovery. “Words can’t express on the gratitude that I feel for the love and well wishes from friends and family and all of you out there who just got love for the Queen! But, just know in the words of my brother Tupac, You are appreciated! Also please continue to send prayers up to my mom’s speedy recover! GOD CAN!!!”

Oprah Winfrey advises Messi how to win World Cup

Image
American television personality and film star Oprah Winfrey has offered advice to Lionel Messi on how he can win the World Cup with Argentina.

Messi is widely considered one of the greatest players of all time, but his detractors often point to the fact he has never won international football's biggest trophy in order to rule out his eligibility as the best ever.

Argentina's best finish during the Messi era came four years ago when they knocked out Belgium and the Netherlands en route to the final, only to come undone by Germany after extra time in Rio de Janeiro.

The 64-year-old urged the Barcelona superstar to find his inner strength to achieve his biggest feat to date, telling Pronto: "Messi this message is for you, and it's something you already have to know in advance.

"You have to go deep, deep inside of you to find all the strength you have inside. Messi, be a warrior."

Winfrey's co-star in new film A Wrinkle in Time, Reese Witherspoon, also admi…

Selena Gome Seemingly Responds to Bikini Photos👙 Showing Her Surgery Scars

Image
Selena Gomez is responding to the recent photos showing her kidney transplant scars in the most amazing way.

The 25-year-old singer and actress, who is currently enjoying some down time in Australia with friends, took to her Instagram to share a video spending time with her pals.

In addition to the joyful video, Selena included a caption, commenting on the notion of beauty in today’s society.

“The beauty myth – an obsession with physical perfection that traps modern woman in an endless cycle of hopelessness, self consciousness, and self-hatred as she tries to fulfill society’s impossible definition of flawless beauty,” Selena wrote.

She added, “I chose to take care of myself because I want to, not to prove anything to anyone. Wind in her sails.”

Mayweather: I could get Cristiano to play for Newcastle

Image
Floyd Mayweather claimed he would be ready to invest in Newcastle United under the right project and that he could bring his friend Cristiano Ronaldo.

Newcastle are looking for a buyer and Mayweather said he liked the city.

"I love Newcastle, these boys like to celebrate as hard as in any city in the world, I got to know some of the players last year and they are good guys," he explained.

"I am always looking at new business opportunities and I love all sports but I invest with my head and not my heart.

"Invest with the heart is the fastest way to lose money but if someone puts together a business plan then my people can look at it and tell me if I can make money, then I would invest. Maybe football is not my game but I have connections everywhere.

"Cristiano is a friend of mine for a long time and he could even finish his career in Newcastle."

Pogba: I'd love to play with Neymar

Image
Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba would love to play with Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar.

The Brazil international hailed Pogba in an interview with La Liga's website in 2016, during his time at Barcelona and the Frenchman's spell at Juventus, claiming he would fit in well at Camp Nou.

Pogba, who has struggled to find his best form at United under Jose Mourinho this season, says he recalls Neymar's kind words, and has reciprocated, perhaps sowing the seeds for a future move.

"I remember [what he said]. I really like him, too," Pogba told Argentine TV channel TyC Sports . "He is truly the definition of joy on the pitch. He also has this.

"I know that in Brazil, football is everything. It's life. Everyone plays football in Brazil. When I see him play on the pitch and enjoying himself, with his technique, his agility ... I love to watch him play.

"It's a different style. He has his own style.

Ronaldo slams 'fake news' amid latest tax case claims

Image
Cristiano Ronaldo has hit out at the spreading of "fake news" in an apparent reference to the latest claims surrounding his tax fraud case.

The 33-year-old was accused last year of evading €14.7 million in taxes relating to his image rights between 2011 and 2014.

According to reports in Spain on Monday, Ronaldo's legal team made a settlement offer of €3.8m, plus admission of wrongdoing, which was rejected by the country's tax authorities.

The Portugal international appeared in court last year to respond to the allegations, insisting "I always pay what I have to pay; I do things the right way and I will continue to do so". His representatives, Gestifute, have also persistently denied any wrongdoing.

The Real Madrid star took to Instagram on Monday to hit back at those who would try to "spoil" his spectacular return to form in 2018.

"Don't try to spoil the beautiful moment I'm living through with fake news," he wrote in Portuguese…

‘Game of Thrones’: Is Ned Stark being resurrected for the final season

Image
Sean Bean’s character Ned Stark was killed off in the first season of “Game of Thrones.” The beheading of the Stark family patriarch, who doubled as the show’s moral compass, was the first big twist for the HBO fantasy series.

Six seasons later, Ned’s presence is still missed. With the eighth and final season set for 2019, rumors have been flying that Ned will be resurrected.

Remember the Hound? And Viserion the dragon? And of course there was Jon Snow, brought back to life through some Red Lady voodoo.

But Ned literally lost his head. Is there such a thing as re-capitation in the wild and whack-y world of Westeros?

Bean, while promoting his new series “The Oath” on the Crackle streaming network, addressed the comeback rumors and cleared up other “GoT” business, in an interview with the Huffington Post.

On Ned’s return, Bean said HBO has not been in contact with him.

“No, they’ve never said that,” Bean said. “And yeah, I’ve heard rumors, but not from very good sources that I might be…

Mourinho Warns Real Madrid Off De Gea

Image
Jose Mourinho has warned Real Madrid they will be wasting their time if they attempt to lure David de Gea away from Manchester United this summer.

De Gea has just 18 months to run on the four-year contract he signed in September 2015 following the collapse of a move to Real due to paperwork not being submitted before the transfer window in Spain closed.

But Mourinho wants to keep the Spanish No 1 at Old Trafford and is confident he can do so.

"I see him here - I don't know what the intentions are of Real Madrid but they should think about another player," Mourinho said.

De Gea will be in action for United on Tuesday when they host Sevilla in the second leg of their last-16 tie in the Champions League.

‘Fantastic Beasts: Crimes Of Grindelwald’Trailer Reveals 1st Look At Jude Law As Dumbledore

Image
The first trailer for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald gives Harry Potter fans their first look at the continuing adventures of Newt Scamander, decades before the Boy Who Lived was even thought of.

Faves from the first film - Newt, Tina, Queen, and even Jacob - have all returned, as well as Johnny Depp, who shocked fans in the final moments of the last film as he was revealed to be Grindelwald himself!

But the big reason to tune in for the first tailer is to see Jude Law's debut as a much younger, more tortured Albus Dumbledore than you've ever seen before.

We also see he'll finally come face to face with Leta Lestange, played by Zoe Kravitz, an old flame who seems to have taken up with his more revered brother.

We know that Ezra Miller is also back as Credence, though how he pulled that off after his violent confrontation at the end of FB1, we'll have to wait and see.

HBO Bosses on Rising Costs, Brutal Negotiations and 'Game of Thrones' Future

Image
Details remain scarce about the hotly anticipated spinoffs (HBO prefers the term “successor shows”) that will follow Game of Thrones when the epic fantasy series ends its run next year.

But HBO executives have made one thing clear: they aren't playing it safe.

Speaking at a panel titled "The Best of HBO" at the INTV conference in Israel on Tuesday, Francesca Orsi, HBO senior vp of drama, said the network has budgeted the Game of Thrones spinoffs near the level of the original series, and above the budget GoT had in its first few seasons. “$50 million (per season) would never fly for what we are trying to do. We are going big,” Orsi said.

Given the phenomenal success of GoT, Orsi said “it feels like corporate malfeasance to not continue it,” noting the network is planning “three, four, five spinoffs” of the original series.

Orsi also promised that the final season of GoT will not disappoint. A table read of the last few episodes with the show's cast, she said, “was a…

'God's Own Country' Is a queer film like no other

Image
A year after Moonlight took home best picture at the Oscars, groundbreaking films like the Daniela Vega-starring A Fantastic Woman and Luca Guadagnino's Call Me by Your Name both won major awards.

Few American viewers have heard of God's Own Country, but the film, which received a BAFTA nomination for British film of the year and currently has an impressive 99% Rotten Tomatoes score, has been making waves abroad. It is now available in the U.S. for VOD streaming. Tracking the relationship between a Yorkshire farm worker named Johnny who drowns his sorrows in alcohol and a Romanian migrant, Gheorghe, who comes to work on the farm, God's Own Country skewers everything from masculinity to anti-immigrant ideology. It also has something that few queer films do — a happy ending.

Queer cinema has a storied history of tragic outcomes, a trope so common that it is difficult to watch a Call Me By Your Name or a God’s Own Country without at least partly anticipating a character deat…

Kawhi Leonard Injury Update: Spurs Star to Meet with Gregg Popovich

Image
Spurs coach Gregg Popovich on Monday said he'll speak to the star forward Tuesday and evaluate his potential comeback to the court.

"I'll see Kawhi tomorrow and we'll see how he's feeling and see how ready he is and see how ready I think he is, and we will go from there," Popovich said, via My San Antonio.

While there is no firm date for Leonard's return, unidentified sources indicate he could play Tuesday against the Magic or Thursday against the Pelicans.

Leonard, 26, has played in just nine games this season while dealing with quad injuries and has been sidelined since Jan. 13. He was averaging 16.2 points per game.

The Spurs (37-30) have been on a downward spiral, dropping 11 of their past 14 games. The team fell to 10th in the Western Conference following Monday's loss to the Rockets.

Barcelona complete €40m move for Arthur

Barcelona have completed the €40 million signing of Gremio midfielder Arthur, according to credible reports.

Though the 21-year-old will not officially join up with his new team-mates until 2019, a deal between the two clubs has now been agreed.

Barca will pay €30m up front for the star of Gremio's Copa Libertadores triumph of 2017, with another €10m potentially due in add-ons.

Arthur was photographed wearing the Catalan club's jersey in a meeting with Barca sporting director Robert Fernandez back in December, with the player long linked with a move to Camp Nou.

And earlier on Wednesday Gremio president Romildo Bolzan confirmed that the deal would be done imminently.

"The topic is on its way to being finished," Bolzan told reporters. "The documents are not signed yet, but the transfer is reaching the final phase.

Mkhitaryan: It's a pleasure to play alongside Ozil

Henrikh Mkhitaryan has revealed that he loves to play alongside Arsenal team-mate Mesut Ozil and believes that the two can continue to combine to great effect for the Gunners.

The Gunners duo were instrumental in the north Londoners 2-0 win against AC Milan at San Siro on Thursday, with Ozil recording two stunning assists to guide an improved Arsenal to a first leg victory.

Mkhitaryan provided three assists on his debut against Everton but has struggled to influence an under performing Arsenal side in recent week before netting the opening goal in Milan as Arsenal silenced the 70,000 home fans.

"Yes, everyone is asking about that [playing in the same team as Ozil], but why not?" Mkhitaryan told Vivaro News.

"This is not the first time that two No.10s play together. It's just a pleasure to play alongside such a player l…

Box-Office Preview: 'Wrinkle in Time Races Against the Clock to Beat 'Black Panther

Ava DuVernay is the first African-American woman to direct a $100 million Hollywood movie; look for 'Black Panther' to bound past $1 billion globally by the end of the weekend.

It remains to be seen whether A Wrinkle in Time - based on Madeleine L'Engle's beloved book - can beat Black Panther at the North American box office this weekend in what's shaping up to be a Disney versus Disney showdown.

Tracking suggests the family-friendly movie, which hopes to appeal in particular to tweens and teenagers, will open in the $35 million-$40 million range, a relatively muted start for a marquee Disney title.

DuVernay and Disney have been lauded for the film's diverse cast, which stars Storm Reid as the story's 13-year-old heroine alongside Oprah Winfrey, Levi Miller, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Chris Pine.

Three additional movies open nationwide this…

Curry🤕 Injury Update: Warriors Star🌟 Won't Be Out💪 for Long


Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry is not expected to miss too many games after suffering an ankle injury on Thursday (Friday AEDT). Curry twisted his right ankle early in the first quarter during Golden State's 110-107 home victory over the San Antonio Spurs.

According to ESPN's Chris Haynes, Curry is "day-to-day" and will travel with the team during the two-game road trip to the Portland Trail Blazers (Friday) and Minnesota Timberwolves (Sunday). The report added that Curry re-injured the same ankle he tweaked in Atlanta nearly a week back. Curry didn't miss any action from the previous injury due to the three-day gap before the game against the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday.

Haynes added in the report that the Warriors medical staff was not worried about the extent of Curry's injury after evaluating the two-time MVP in the locker room. "After a thorough ev…

Sleepless Wenger reveals support from Sir Alex Ferguson

Image
Arsene Wenger has struggled to sleep and received support from old rival Alex Ferguson during Arsenal's recent form slump.

The Gunners halted a four-game losing streak with an impressive 2-0 Europa League last-16 win at AC Milan on Thursday, but that result might do little to improve an atmosphere verging on toxic around the Emirates Stadium.

Back-to-back 3-0 defeats against Manchester City – the first of which came in the EFL Cup final – and a sapping reverse at Brighton and Hove Albion arguably left Wenger's tenure at its lowest ebb.

"Every manager will tell you when he doesn't get results that the first thing affected is the mood, the lack of sleep [because of] that desire to find solutions," he said.

"Overall, it is part of the job. When you are a young manager you dream that you want to win every football game. But it is not about that. It is about surviving through disappointments and finding solutions. That is interesting as well and can make you a b…
