Tom Brady, Gisele Bundchen, Stephen Curry, Larry David, And More Have Been Named In A Class Action Lawsuit Against Defunct Crypto Trader FTX
Looks like Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen have more to worry about than just their celebrity divorce, as the former couple has been named in a class action lawsuit against the now-defunct cryptocurrency exchange, FTX, along with other celebrity investors and promoters, like Larry David, Stephen Curry, and the Golden State Warriors, Shaquille O’Neal, and Naomi Osaka. Oh, no, not Naomi! But wait–where’s Matt Damon‘s name on this list?! He’s shilled crypto too! Round ’em all up!
23-year-old tennis player Naomi Osaka is a tennis legend-in-the-making (I believe that beating the GOAT Serena Williams is pretty much your FastPass to the front of the line). She was previously scheduled to compete in the 2021 French Open, which began this week and will run until June 13th.

The Milwaukee Bucks were supposed to play the Orlando Magic in the NBA playoffs last night, but the game did not go on, because the Bucks decided to strike against systematic racism and police brutality, like the police killing of Breonna Taylor and the shooting of Jacob Blake, a Black man who has been left partially paralyzed after Officer Rusten Sheskey shot him seven times as he walked to his car in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

After the Bucks’ announcement, the NBA announced that all three playoff games would not go down last night and would be postponed. That led to the WNBA, a handful of Major League Baseball teams, some Major League Soccer teams, and tennis star Naomi Osaka all using their voices and fame to bring attention to police brutality. Kenny Smith of TNT’s Inside The NBA also walked out in solidarity. Meanwhile, side-eyes were thrown at the NHL for going on with their games. But they did put up an “End Racism” graphic on a screen during a game in Toronto and the announcer called for their community to stand up for social justice.
Tennis deity and proud catsuit wearer Serena Williams lost the US Open women’s singles final to Naomi Osaka yesterday, but the real drama occurred when chair umpire Carlos Ramos penalized Serena for cheating during the match. Ramos claimed Williams was receiving coaching. Things escalated rather quickly from there. Serena eventually labeled Caros a “thief,” and called out sexism in tennis. She also ended up owing 17K in fines. It got very real at Arthur Ashe Stadium yesterday. Continue reading
