The Le'Nalors News of The Week - Dwight Howard Admits To Kissing Man, Denies Orchestrating Forced Threesome

Dwight Howard is asking a court to dismiss the lawsuit of a man who claims that the former NBA star sexually assaulted him and attempted to rope the individual into an unsanctioned sexual act. Stephen Harper, the man who filed the lawsuit, says he met Dwight Howard via social media over two years ago.

Radar Online obtained the court records connected to the lawsuit in which Stephen Harper says that he met Dwight Howard and began having online conversations back in May of 2021. After reaching out on Instagram via a direct message, the pair exchanged phone texts with Howard reportedly stating that he was into a number of sexual acts and asked Harper to send him photos.

Howard responded in the case admitting to exchanging texts with Harper for a brief period in the summer of 2021, which included nude photos and videos. Howard also added that Harper came to his home on July 19, 2021, and entered his bedroom. Both of them disrobed and engaged in “consensual kissing.”

At this point, Harper claims that Howard invited another man to the bedroom reportedly dressed as a woman going by the name Kitty. Harper says that Howard attempted to get the pair to engage in a threesome, something Harper did not agree to. Kitty began to perform a sexual act on Howard with Harper expressing he wasn’t comfortable with the setup.

Harper then claims that Howard began touching his thigh and feeling him through his underwear, allegedly saying he “was going to do whatever” to Harper and shot down any resistance.

From Radar Online:

“Defendant stood up (towering over Mr. Harper), grabbed Mr. Harper by the thighs, forcibly removed Mr. Harper’s underwear, held Mr. Harper down, and performed nonconsensual oral sex on Mr. Harper,” the suit read. “Mr. Harper was in fear of imminent bodily harm when he was pinned down and forced to remain in place while Defendant continued to sexually assault him.”

While Howard admitted that Kitty was in the room, he claimed that all three were aware that a threesome would be taking place.

Dwight Howard is facing charges of assault, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress and false imprisonment in the lawsuit.

The Le'Nalors News of The Week - NBA Under DOJ Investigation For Supposed Anticompetitive Behavior Against Ice Cube’s Big3 League

 Just hours before the 2023-2024 NBA season tips off, we have some breaking news that is quite surprising. It has nothing to do with any of the players. Instead, it is about the NBA as an organization and its brand image. According to multiple reports, including TMZ Sports, the league has been under an ongoing investigation by the United States Department of Justice. The reason is that Ice Cube's Big3 league feels there are anticompetitive behaviors in practice from its longstanding counterpart.

The Big3's aura comes from former NBA players going against each other. It has been in place since 2017 and it is a great league in general. However, they feel the NBA has been working to essentially slowly eliminate them in numerous ways. Namely, they are allegedly "preventing sponsors and other potential partners from doing business."

In fact, Big3 claims that players have shown interest in playing in it, but they have been denied access. The same goes for referees and owners. They apparently cannot have any sort of hand in helping them out. Owners are in question and if the DOJ finds any evidence, hefty fines could come down. NBA spokesman Mike Bass was says they have been supportive of the Big3. All of this began back in the first of the year and it could extend into 2024 as well.

The Le'Nalors News of The Week - Keanu Reeves received bass guitar lessons from Flea

Keanu Reeves once received a bass guitar lesson from Red Hot Chili Peppers' Flea.

The 59-year-old actor - who plays bass in the grunge band Dogstar - revealed he asked the musician for advice when they met on a movie set.

Speaking on Fender's YouTube channel, Keanu said: "I remember one time I was doing a film, and Flea was in it, or I was in a film with Flea. And I remember there was a house, and there [were] amps and instruments and stuff like that.

"And I was like, ‘Hey, Flea, can you give me a lesson?’ And he was like, ‘Sure, man!’ And he [did a complex bass solo]. And I was like, ‘Alright, so?’ And he was like, ‘Just feel it, man. Just play.’ And I was like, ‘Yeah.’”

Keanu and Flea both appeared in the 1981 movie 'My Own Private Idaho', directed by Gus Van Sant.

Speaking about how he became a bassist, Keanu said, “I think I’m a wild animal playing with a piece of wood. I didn’t learn a lot of songs. I didn’t listen to a song and try and figure it out. Kids: I regret that. If you’re picking up an instrument, it’s cool to figure out what people have done before, but I wasn’t doing that. So I would just play. So I had no theory.

"I was asked what was my first bass. I’ve been trying to remember, but I think it was like 1986. I went to the Hollywood Guitar Center with the daydream of getting a bass guitar.”

“I ended up… I don’t recall, but there was a guy there who was selling a bass. He was with a friend. Not at the store, it was like a parking lot sale. I had, like, a bass drug deal.”


The Le'Nalors News of The Week - Dame Dash “Broke” But “Proud,” Roc-A-Fella Co-Founder Says


Figures like Benzino and Dame Dash were at the top of their game decades ago, but as time has passed, so have the ways of the music industry. Now, the landscape looks completely different, and the men responsible for running The Source and Roc-a-Fellahave unfortunately fallen on hard financial times. Both have been open about their struggles in the past, with Dash recently speaking his truth on an episode of The CEO Show. During his interview, the 52-year-old confirmed that he's been watching his bank account balance dwindle for years, despite all that he previously accomplished as an executive and entrepreneur.

"I’ve had to start [a] new company from scratch, without any money to start it with," the guest told host Dr. Taje Moreno. "I had to do it [by] rubbing two sticks together. So I can’t pay out three or four hundred thousand a year in child support, ‘cause I ain’t making that. But I’m not ashamed of that because I have things to show for it, but it hasn’t profited yet," he confidently continued.

In addition to that, the New Yorker clarified that the ownership stake in his ex-wife Rachel Roy's fashion line was taken into consideration when the payments were determined. She presently controls that equity, which Dash believes should supplement Roy for the missing child support. "You can’t be mad at me and make me feel bad if the money that I had to give the kids, you got, and you still expecting me to pay that while I’m investing and losing money for years," the father of three vented.

The Le'Nalors News of The Week - Angela Simmons Ordered To Pay $48K In Back Rent And Other Housing Costs

Angela Simmons 'Growing Up Hip Hop' Star Poses In New Photos
Angela Simmons has been ordered to pay her former landlord $48,000 in back rent, bills, and other housing costs. The massive fee stems from an apartment in New Jersey that Simmons rented in October 2019. About a year later, her landlord began submitting complaints about insufficient payments from the reality star and fashion designer. Simmons did not respond to the charges, leading to a judge handing down a default ruling of $48,000.

Furthermore, TMZ noted that following the ruling, there has been a significant increase in the amount of promotional for her cake business on her social media. Simmons' representatives are yet to release a statement about the ruling and it's unclear what will happen if Simmons fails to pay up.
