US athlete Tyson Gay tests positive for banned substances

US sprinter and the world’s second fastest man, Tyson Gay, has tested positive for banned substances and has pulled out of next month’s World Championships in Moscow.

Gay, 30, said he was notified by the US Anti-Doping Agency on Friday that his ‘A’ sample from an out-of-competition test in May had returned a positive.

Gay didn’t reveal the substance in a phone conversation from Amsterdam on Sunday but said:

“I don’t have a sabotage story. I don’t have any lies. I don’t have anything to say to make this seem like it was a mistake or it was on USADA’s hands, someone playing games. I don’t have any of those stories. I basically put my trust in someone and I was let down.”

CORY MONTEITH FOUND DEAD IN HOTEL ROOM

Cory Monteith, who played the adorable Finn Hudson on ‘Glee,’ was found dead on Saturday (July 13) in his hotel room in Vancouver, Canada at the age of 31.

According to sources, Monteith was found unresponsive and alone by staffers at the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel. The cause of death is unknown at this time, but the police have already ruled out foul play. Monteith was in his room the night before, hanging out with some friends before they all went out, but he had come back early Saturday morning alone.

The ‘Glee’ star voluntarily entered rehab back in April to address previous struggles with substance abuse. In a 2011 interview, he told Parade Magazine he began using drugs when he was just 13 and even sought treatment when he was 19 after his mother and close friends orchestrated an intervention.

“I don’t want kids to think it’s okay to drop out of school and get high, and they’ll be famous actors, too,” he stated in 2011. “But for those people who might give up: Get real about what you want and go after it.”

Monteith was dating ‘Glee’ co-star Lea Michele offscreen, who was always by his side, even during his rehab stint. When he was admitted, she told PEOPLE, “I love and support Cory and will stand by him through this. I am grateful and proud he made this decision.” She has not responded yet to the news.

The last we heard of Monteith, he had finished his rehab stint on April 26. He was also working on several films (All the Wrong Reasons’ and ‘McCanick’), which may have been in post-production.

20th Century Fox Television and Fox Broadcasting company released a joint statement that reads:

“We are deeply saddened by this tragic news. Cory was an exceptional talent and an even more exceptional person. He was a true joy to work with and we will all miss him tremendously. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and loved ones.”

So far there has been an outpour of tweets about the late actor, from co-star Dot-Marie Jones and peers like The Wanted, Nick Jonas, Rihanna, Demi Lovato, and Taylor Swift, among others.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Cory Monteith and his family. May his soul rest in peace…AMEN

Kanye West’s Yeezus album makes the history books

Kanye West’s new album Yeezus made history this week but not in a good way…at least not in a way Kanye would have liked!

The album holds the crown for the fourth biggest drop in second week sales for a #1 debut album since Sound Scan started keeping track in 1991.

Kanye released the new album with no pre-sales, no singles and no videos. And even though it debuted at No.1 with 327,000 in sales, it quickly slipped to No.3 the following week, falling by 80%.

Peter (P-Square) finally gets his own N300 million champagne from Amosu

Almost a month after Don Jazzy got the first bottle of the N300million Goûtdediamants champagne from luxury millionaire designer, Alexander Amosu; Peter Okoye of the duo P-Square has finally gotten his.

Amosu publicly made the promise to gift Peter Okoye one bottle on Twitter but funny enough Don Jazzy got one first, even though no public promises were made. At least we now know where his loyalty lies.

Alexander Amosu entered the records book for creating the world’s most expensive champagne called Taste of Diamonds, valued at 1.2million pounds.

Gov. Rotimi Amaechi’s Heart Of Gold….Rescues Ojb With $100,000

We can authoritatively inform that governor of Rivers States; Rotimi Amaechi has donated the sum of $100,000 over N15.5m to rescue the ailing music producer, OJB Jezreel. The move was made by Jazzman Olofin, who was said to have visited Mr. Femi Davies, a top journalist and online publisher to complain about the way the people around are treating the issue of the prolific producer/singer.

Miffed by the report given, Femi Davies, we were told, intensified effort to liaise with another top journalist, Mr. Wale Olaleye, This Day Political Editor and he was said to have asked Mr. Davies to come forth with a formal letter of request to be forwarded to Governor Amaechi. As soon as the letter got to the embattled governor, we gathered that he signed it and ordered the state to pay as soon as possible.

Though, there seem to be some rancor between the people in charge of the ‘Support OJB Team’ as some people are already deliberating on how to have their share of the money as soon as it arrives since Governor Amaechi has coughed out the whole money needed for the kidney transplant and there were previous donations close to N10m before now.

This is really amazing, despite the situation of things between him and some political elements in PDP, governor Amaechi surprised all and sundry as he made this whopping donation. What a man with a heart of gold!

We hope the government of the good-hearted man, Mr. Amaechi would speedily attend to this cause before it’s too late like what happened in Edo State recently when a civil servant who needed just N150,000 had to lose his life because the money was not speedily disbursed as authorized by the governor.

50 Cent Charged With Domestic Abuse and Could Face Up to Five Years in jail

Rapper 50 Cent has been charged with domestic violence after he allegedly kicked the mother of his son and destroyed property in her condo last month.

According to TMZ:

50 is accused of causing $7,100 in damage during the June 23 incident, which took place inside the victim’s condo in Toluca Lake, Ca. According to officials, LAPD officers were called to the scene … and the woman told cops she had gotten into an altercation with 50 and locked herself in the bedroom.

50 — real name Curtis Jackson — allegedly got so mad, he kicked down the door and kicked her, resulting in an injury. Officials say the 37-year-old rapper is also accused of breaking chandeliers, furniture, a TV and a lamp — and allegedly ransacked the bedroom closet — during his rampage.

Officials say 50 left the scene before cops arrived. Now he’s being hit with five charges – one count misdemeanor domestic violence and four counts of misdemeanor vandalism and if convicted on all counts, he could face up to five years in jail and $46,000 in fines. Damn homie! He’s due in court to be arraigned on July 22, so we’ll keep you updated.
