At the Tokyo Olympics this week, Jamaican runner Elaine Thompson-Herah broke Florence Griffith Joyner’s Olympic record in the women’s 100 meters, which has been unbeatable for the past 33 years. She pointed at the scoreboard even before crossing the line in 10.61 seconds on Saturday, July 31 to defend her title and lead a Jamaican sweep of the gold, silver, and bronze medals.
Her time was just .01 second fast than Griffith Joyner, who set the old record of 10.62 at the 1988 Seoul Olympics. Thompson-Herah beat her top rival, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, by .13 seconds. Shericka Jackson rounded out the top three, winning bronze in 10.76.
While Thompson-Herah wasn’t sure she would be able to break 10.7 as she approached the finish, “I knew that I won,” she said after the race.
“The pointing, I don’t know what it means. To show that I was clear,” she said.
She also took to Twitter following her big win, sending out an inspiring message about never giving up on your dreams.
“Just a lil girl from BANANA GROUND who liked to run,” she wrote. “Believe In your dreams work hard and have faith in God…ETH.”
This marks the first Jamaican sweep of the medals since the women did the same at the 2008 Beijing Games, though their feat was somewhat overshadowed by the record-setting performance of Usain Bolt that same week.
Now, Fraser-Pryce and Thompson-Herah are headed for a possible rematch in the 200, where Thompson-Herah is also the defending champion.
Show her the money!
Retired NBA champion Lamar Odom’s most expensive fight isn’t his celebrity boxing match, it’s the legal battle he recently lost against ex Liza Morales According to. TMZ Sports, Odom was ordered to pay more than $380,000 after a judge ruled that he has not paid anything in support payments since June of 2020, which Morales argued was in violation of their 2015 settlement agreement. Odom also refused to make any court appearances for the matter, but repeatedly plead his case in heated social media posts and exchanges with Morales. In his now-deleted statements about “deadbeat” accusations, Odom maintained that he still supports his children, but shouldn’t owe his ex-girlfriend now that those children are grown.
However, in the state of New York where Morales lives with Destiny, 23, and Lamar Jr., 19, child support is enforced until the age of 21. Court documents indicate the $380,549 Odom is ordered to pay includes $161,305 for college tuition and expenses, $91,220 in delinquent child support, Morales’ legal expenses, and $88,117 in missed rent for the Manhattan apartment she shares with the children. Page Six also reports that a judge ordered Odom to fund $1 million worth of life insurance with Morales as the beneficiary or she “may enter a judgment against Lamar Odom for an additional $1,000,000.”
A judge blasted Odom last month for missed child support payments and leaving his family to face eviction despite the windfall from his boxing match against Aaron Carter. Lamar knows the court will be watching his pockets closely for his next celebrity boxing match. In October he’s getting in the ring with someone his own size, former heavyweight boxing champion Riddick Bowe.
42 Dugg is once again a trending topic on Twitter, but this time, it isn’t for misleading lyrics or criminal acts. Instead, it’s for a video gone viral and let us warn you now–it’s pretty awkward to watch.
The Detroit rapper, was simply doing his fatherly duties by celebrating his son’s third birthday on Instagram. He posted a picture of his little man, along with a video however, this video sent social media into a frenzy. It showed Dugg hugging and kissing his son but the kiss used more tongue than what the average parent would use. A lot of followers found the loving gesture over the top and exaggerated. So much to the point that users claimed Child Protective Services should be alerted.
It didn’t take long for the video to go viral along with memes and allegations. Soon enough, Dugg took to his Instagram Story with what social media is now calling a homophobic rant. “Suck my d*ck you gay biotches,” he wrote.
Yikes! He seems pretty pissed.
“Ain’t nobody going for that gay ass hoe ass Sh*t y’all on, y’all quit to get on some GAY B*TCH ASS SH*T BUT WHEN AS N*GGA JUMP DOWN ON ONE YOU HOE N*GGAS AND CALL SOMEBODY OUT WE HOMOPHOBIC,” he added. “DONT NOBODY GIVE AH F*CK ABOUT THAT SH*T YALL DONT NONE US WE ENTERTAINERS THATS IT.”
“WE NOT HERE TO coach you on life if I say I’m not with that gay sh*t that’s where y’all should leave it quit tryna shove that sh*t down N*ggas throats, ah gay n*gga ah be on national tv tonguing another HOE ASS N*GGA, but that’s ok though y’all or no other motherf*ckas on earth ain’t finna make me like SH*T ION LIKE.”
The situation does suck because we stan for a good father, son relationship and love to see black fathers doing their thing. However, the video was a bit difficult to watch. Of course black Twitter got jokes for days and we’ve collected some of the best below.
Did you think the kiss was inappropriate? Let us know your thoughts below.
Rick Ross is known for his impressive car collection, which numbers over a hundred, including Lamborghinis, seven Chevy Bel-Airs, and even a custom Porsche 911. However, Rozay may be inaptly titled the Maybach Music CEO because he is not allowed to drive any one of them.
“Who own a hundred cars and don’t have a driver’s license,” Ross asked on his Instagram Story. “More importantly, I’m filling out every day for my driver’s license, and they ask me, ‘Are you an organ donor?’” He then poked some fun at himself. “I said, ‘Damn, if something was to happen to me and saw how good my heart was.’ Don’t let me die just to take my good heart.”
It may be hard to believe the 45-year-old rapper doesn’t have his license yet, especially for someone who has amassed so much property and that many cars. However, just because Rozay isn’t driving the vehicles himself doesn’t mean he is not making boss moves with them. In fact, the cars have been a great investment for him.
“Somebody just paid me $20,000 to put five cars in front of something just to take some pictures for two hours,” Ross said during his visit to the I Am Athlete podcast ate last year. “If I’m moving with it, I’m going to try my best to get the most out of it. Why not?”

The best gymnast to ever grace the mat has chosen her mental health once again.
Last week it was reported that Simone Biles would back out of Tuesday’s Olympic team final after her first vault, and she later then opted out of Thursday’s all-around final to get her mind right. Now, she’s dropped out of another– Sunday’s individual finals in the vault and uneven bars.
“Today, after further consultation with medical staff, Simone Biles has decided to withdraw from the event finals for vault and the uneven bars,” USAG said in a statement. “She will continue to be evaluated daily to determine whether to compete in the finals for floor exercise and balance beam.”
American teammate MyKayla Skinner will replace Biles, but the USA will still have the ability to stand atop the podium since she had the fourth-highest score in vault during qualifications. The only reason she wasn’t listed to compete prior to Biles dropping out is because she was a victim of the International Gymnastics Federation’s two-per-country rule.
Biles revealed that she was still struggling on Friday when she posted (then deleted) Instagram stories of her spinning on the bars but unable to keep her balance and landing awkwardly on the mat. Gymnasts often refer to the issue as “twisties,” simply meaning they get lost in the air, which makes sticking a move much harder and very dangerous.
“I don’t think you realize how dangerous this is on hard/competitive surface,” she wrote in a caption.
While fans wish they could see Biles make history, Twitter is still supporting her mental health journey before she rejoins the competition.
