Zion Williamson Blown Out Nike Shoe Is Missing … The $250,000 Mystery!!!
3/31/2019 1:00 AM PDT
No one seems to know the location of Zion Williamson‘s infamous blown-out Nike sneaker — not Zion, not Duke, not even Nike … and it’s a huge problem considering it’s worth around $250,000!!!
Of course, Zion exploded his left PG 2.5 PE sneaker during the Feb. 20 game against North Carolina — injuring his knee in the process. Thankfully, he’s better now.
So, when we spotted Zion and his Duke teammates in Washington, D.C. the other day, we asked the 18-year-old straight up … who’s got the shoe?
Zion smiled and told us, “Uh, ask coach about ’em.”
So, we did! We hit up the Duke athletic dept., and a rep told us they have no idea where the shoes ended up.
Next call was to Nike — maybe they have the shoe, right?
A Nike rep told us, “I don’t have any information [on the location of the shoe].”
WHY HAS THIS BECOME SUCH A MYSTERY?!!
Our next call was to Ken Goldin from Goldin Auctions — one of the leading sellers of sports memorabilia in the world. He just sold some of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar‘s prized mementos for almost $3 MILLION!
Ken told us the shoes are INSANELY collectible — and could fetch more than $250,000 on the open market!!
In fact, Ken believes the blown out shoe plus the matching intact sneaker are “the most famous pair of sneakers in the world, period. End of story.”
Which brings us back to the original question … WHERE ARE THE SHOES?!

Kelsey Turner Arrested In Connection To California Doctor’s Murder
According to a NY Daily News report, The FBI has arrested a model featured in “Playboy Italia” and “Maxim” in connection with the murder of a California doctor, recently found dead in the trunk of a car. Kelsey Turner is accused of killing the 71-year-old psychiatrist and was taken into custody in Stockton on March 21, the LAVPD announced in a press release Thursday night. She is currently awaiting extradition back to Clark County to face a murder charge.
Officers with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department earlier this month discovered Dr. Thomas Burchard bludgeoned to death inside an abandoned vehicle, parked at the Lake Mead National Recreational Area, just outside Las Vegas. The Clark County Sheriff’s Coroner said he died from blunt force trauma to the head and ruled his death a homicide.
So far, it’s been unclear how investigators connected Turner with the murder, but her mother told KSBW that her 25-year-old daughter had been friendly with the Burchard for years. He allegedly also paid for a rental home in Salinas, where Turner lived with her mother and children for “about a year,” according to a neighbor.
Yikes Turner is slated to appear in San Joaquin County court on April 8.
As you probably already know, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have a fourth little one on the way, and they’re busy at work getting ready for his arrival.
An insider told Us Weekly, “Kim and Kanye have begun work on the nursery. North fully understands what’s going on and is so into it.” And it’s not only the couple’s oldest daughter, who’s excited for her younger sibling, but “Kim is in a great place,” as well, the source also tells Us.
But when it comes to actually choosing a name for baby number 4, things aren’t going as smoothly. KimYe has always been known for their unique baby names, so they probably aren’t referencing any baby books for inspiration. “Kim and Kanye are not close to naming the new baby,” the insider added. “They won’t know until the week before and probably only day of. It’s quite the process.”
It was first revealed back in January that the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star and her husband are expecting their fourth child together via surrogate. The baby boy is said to be due “in very early May.” The KKW Beauty mogul confirmed that she was expanding her family’s newest addition while on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen with her sisters Kourtney Kardashian and Khloé Kardashian.
Kim admits that the news got out there because of her loose lips while drinking during the holidays. “It’s out there,” she admitted. “I got drunk at our Christmas Eve party, and I told some people. I can’t remember who I told, because I never get drunk.”
The KUWTK star was honest about the fact that she was initially nervous about adding a fourth child into her already big family, but revealed she’s more at ease while on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon back in February. “I was kind of stressing that my house is so full, but I heard that parents of four are the most enlightened and calm of all parents,” she said at the time.
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian tied the knot in 2013, one year after welcoming their first child, North. She became an older sister in 2015 when Saint arrived, followed by Chicago in January 2018.
Coupled Up: Problem And Daphne Wayans
Sorry, we’re a bit late on this cougar-coupledom news, but we LOVE a good May-December celebrity romance. West coast rapper Problem, 33, is seriously dating Daphne Wayans, 47, the ex-wife of Keenan Ivory-Wayans.
And by “serious”, Problem says he’s ready to pop the question to Daphne SOON!
Daphne and Keen were married from 2001 – 2005 and have five children together.
Problem wrote out the timeline of his Daphne romance, he says it began when he was just 5-years-old! Apparently, he was even upset with Daphne for going to prom with a “dickhead” at the time. Problem’s account of his love for Daphne then reads like a crush, but now they’ve been making it REAL for the past two years since they’ve been dating!
Are you feeling these two together?
Hit the flip to read his account of how they’re romance became reality.
Here’s how Problem says he KNEW they’d end up together.
See, I called this one when I was 5 years old moonwalking in her living room, “That’s gonna be my girl”. I used to tell her she was going be my wife every weekend for atleast 12 years lol. Tried to stop her from going to prom one year because I knew dude was a dickhead and didn’t deserve her time..yeah I was 9 but I always been smart.
To fast forward the story, we both got out in the world and lived extraordinary lives but separately. Thats cool and all…but..THAT WASNT THE PLAN. So God and Mr Polk called Paw Paw up and put the play together the way it was originally supposed to be (it’s a way longer, cooler story but it’s Valentine’s Day and I gotta get back to that) Happy Valentines Day to my original valentine @daphnewayans. I WAS ALWAYS MEANT TO LOVE YOU AND VICE VERSA (we bout to have to change that IG name in a minute ) 50million.

Nicki Minaj Sues For $40,000 Unpaid Bill
A stylist named Cristina Acevedo is suing Nicki Minaj for $43,200 in unpaid fees. Acevedo says instead of Nicki responding to her invoice with a deposit, she responded with “girl, goodbye!”
In lawsuit documents obtained by The Blast, the stylist was allegedly hired for Minaj in 2017 at the rate of $1,500 per day. Nicki allegedly hired the stylist to outfit her for nearly a month while she toured across the country. Acevedo claimed she tirelessly worked over 10 hours per day for the rapper over the course of 24 days while traveling around the United States.
At the end of the trip, however, Minaj refused to “pay even one penny” for the work. After nagging for her money, Acevedo claims she eventually received an email from Minaj that read, “No one is paying you 36 thousand dollars,” adding, “Send an email with some sense or don’t send any others. This isn’t your get rich quick scheme.” Minaj allegedly added a “girl, goodbye” at the end. Yikes!
Acevedo claims she’s now owed $43,200. Acevedo included Minaj and her companies in the lawsuit, including Pink Friday Productions and Pink Personality, Inc.
So far Nicki has NOT responded.
Osundairo Brothers Fit Biz is Boomin’ … After Jussie Case
3/30/2019 1:00 AM PDT
The Jussie Smollett saga might be over for the Osundairo brothers — but they’re just getting started on their fitness business … which is apparently skyrocketing.
Sources close to Abel and Ola tell TMZ … the brothers’ training regiment is a hot commodity in the wake of the Jussie scandal, which ended with the actor getting off scot-free this week. We’re told hundreds of people have been hitting them up for training and diet plans.
Ironic, really, considering that’s exactly what they were doing for Jussie before things went awry.
Business must actually be doing pretty well considering they’re now advertising a new “Team Abel” fitness package on their social media pages. The basic purchase will run ya $30 for a workout plan — does NOT include personal training. The premium plan will cost folks just $20 more … and it gets you a lot, including a diet program, strength training, power training, shred training and a 4-week meal plan.
No word on whether personal training costs $3,500 …
Getting on-board could be worth your while — in case you haven’t noticed, these dudes are completely shredded (and athletic). So, obviously, they know a thing or two when it comes to fitness.
The bigger — and unanswered — question more people probably care about at this point, though, is whether they’ll break their silence on how the Jussie case shook out in Chi-town.
We’re told they will speak on it in the near future … but no word on an exact date yet, or if there’s a price tag attached.
Stay tuned …
