Girl Records Kanye Dancing While Shopping at Jacob the Jeweler (Video)

Kanye Dance Jacob

Looks like the reports of Kanye being $50+ million in debt are false because today we see this footage of a happy Kanye dancing while buying some new ice.

I guess ‘TLOP’ did better numbers than he expected.

The reason that the dance strikes me as weird is because Kanye is the only one vibing out in the store. He has a history of liking his music a lot more than other people, so maybe he was just overly into the tunes.


Nets Joe Johnson Being Sued For $260k In Unpaid Jewelry

Brooklyn Nets guard Joe Johnson has been sued, accused of being a thief, and he’s having none of it.

TMZ is reporting that Johnson is fighting back against charges that he is a jewelry thief after being accused of not paying for more than $125,000 in jewelry from an Atlanta diamond dealer.

Aydin & Company reportedly filed suit against Johnson earlier this month claiming that in 2010 Johnson signed a purchase agreement for more than $125,000 worth of jewels.

The items in question are a diamond beaded bracelet, a white gold bezel set rosary, black diamond stud earrings, and a white gold watch with diamonds.

The lawsuit insist that Johnson took the jewelry, but never paid for it.

Aydin’s is suing for the jewels, legal fees, and interest on the diamonds.

A source close to Joe Johnson claims the suit is bogus, claiming that “the owner of the store asked Johnson to wear the items on loan and allowed him to return them when he was done.”

 But when Johnson tried to give the items back, we’re told the jeweler refused and slapped him with the bill instead.

John has twice tried to return the items to no avail.



Former Duke Player Lance Thomas Under NCAA Investigation Over $100k Jewelry Debt

There could be possible trouble brewing in krzyzewskiville involving the NCAA and possible sanctions.

The Raleigh News And Observer is reporting that former Duke University basketball player Lance Thomas is being sued by a New York jewelry firm that caters to professional athletes.

Reports state that Thomas purchased five pieces of jewelry valued at close to $98,000 in the middle of his senior season at Duke.  Documents involved with the suit claim Thomas made an initial $30,000 down payment and received credit from the company for the remaining $67,000, which remains unpaid.

Thomas was the starting power forward on that 2009-10 Duke national championship team that defeated Butler by the slimmest of margins.

A spokesman from Duke and Thomas current agent stated they had no knowledge of the situation.

“We have been made aware of a lawsuit filed by a jeweler against former men’s basketball player Lance Thomas and we are currently looking into the matter,” said Jon Jackson, the school’s associate athletic director for media relations.

This lawsuit could have direct ramification on Duke University, it’s basketball program, and that 2009 national championship team.

NCAA bylaws and rules prohibit college athletes who are declared amateurs from receiving extra benefits that aren’t available to regular students as well.   The spokesperson for the NCAA stated that the “proof in the stated violation would be if a regular student or someone similar would be able to attain the same benefit or treatment.”

The company in question in the suit, Rafaello & Co, made a similar suit against Dez Bryant 2010 for $250,000 in unpaid jewelry debt.

In my opinion the basis for whether Duke will be in hot water with the NCAA will be determined by how Thomas was able to make such a large down payment.

I don’t know to many college seniors who can afford to drop $30k on anything at one time.

As usual stay tuned and we will keep you updated.
