Ezekiel Elliott Gives Advice To Kareem Hunt & Reuben Foster

Breaking News

Kareem Hunt and Reuben Foster, listen up … Ezekiel Elliott is handing down advice on how to get through the lengthy suspensions you’re about to face.

“Just focus on your day-to-day life, making sure you’re winning the next day,” Elliott told reporters Wednesday.

“Because when you start looking down the road, you kind of get bogged down.”

Of course, Elliott has already walked a mile in Hunt and Foster’s shoes … having been accused of domestic violence and getting slapped with a subsequent suspension.

In Zeke’s case … the Cowboys superstar — who was never arrested or charged — was popped for 6 games and often spoke about how difficult it was to get through the month-and-a-half absence.

So, his message for Hunt and Foster this week was simple … “Focus on day to day, doing better day to day, and things are going to work themselves out.”

Easier said than done … Hunt is still a free agent — and while Foster’s on the Redskins’ roster … they haven’t guaranteed he’ll ever play for them.

Britney Spears Gives Father Cash Bonus For Keeping Her Off Drugs

These days, Britney Spears has attained full-blown icon status and been granted admission into the pantheon of pop gods alongside Madonna and Michael Jackson.

But it wasn’t all that long ago that it looked as though Spears was headed for the kind of tragic flameout that’s all too common among stars who hit the big time while still in their teens.

Britney’s 2007 meltdown is the stuff of legend, and enough time has gone by that it’s easy to laugh at the shaved head and the umbrella-wielding attack on the paparazzi.

But the fact remains that all that erratic behavior was fueled by very real pain and mental illness — and serious indulgence in a wide array of substances.

These days, Spears is a sober and responsible mother and a consummate entertainer, still capable of wowing diehard fans on a nightly basis with her acclaimed Las Vegas residency.

It’s wonderful that she’s been able to move on from her harrowing past, but those who helped her through that difficult time are eager to ensure that she never forgets it.

And it seems there are two reasons that they want her to remain forever mindful — so that she doesn’t go down that road again, and so that she remains grateful to the ones who helped bring her back from the brink.

According to a new report published today by Radar Online, several members of Team Britney appeared in a Las Vegas courtroom today where a judge determined they were owed large sums of money by Spears’ estate in exchange for their services to the singer.

As you may recall, Britney was placed under a conservatorship in order to protect her from herself following her breakdown.

Since it seems to be working out for her, the arrangement has remained in place for over a decade.

And today, Britney’s father, Jamie Spears, and a “co-conservator” named Andrew Wallet were compensated to the tune of $ 426,000 for their roles in keeping Brit on the straight and narrow.

According to documents obtained by Radar, Jamie and Andrew argued that they provided “stability and leadership” to Britney and helped keep “literally hundreds of people in check.”

Now, bringing stability and keeping people in check are pretty vague boasts, but Jamie and Andrew’s lawyers went on to provide some specifics:

“By way of example, and not by way of limitation, at the planning stages of the Circus Tour, the Declarant instructed entertainment counsel to spread the risk of the Conservatee failing to fulfill her duties on tour because of some third party providing illegal substances,” they claimed.

“The financial stakes were high, and failure was not an option.”

That’s legalese for “Jamie and Andrew kept Britney off drugs so that she could continue making a whole lot of money.”

Andrew argues that he righted the ship of Britney’s career multiple times, including at the start of her Vegas residency, when she was apparently quite vulnerable:

“At the beginning of the conservatorship, the estate was nearly out of fund and cash equivalents,” Wallet said in the affidavit.

“The estate and person of the conservative were in total chaos with tremendous liabilities. The problems were of epic proportions over a period of years.

“Extraordinary skills have been employed by all in order to achieve the results enjoyed at the present time. Petitioner has had many months at a time where all of his professional time was spent in services rendered exclusively to the conservative.”

Again, it’s a lot of legal mumbo-jumbo, but there’s much to be learned here.

For example, like every recovering addict, Britney is never out of the woods and relies heavily on the support of those around her.

Also, being one of the supportive people around her is apparently quite a lucrative endeavor.


Kate Upton Gives Birth to First Child!

The woman who many consider to be the world’s most perfect looking human just gave birth to an absolute perfect baby.

Indeed, congratulations are in order for Kate Upton:

The supermodel just gave birth to her very first child!

The 26-year old shared the blessed news on Saturday evening, alerting Instagram followers to the name and the gender of her and husband Justin Verlander’s precious offspring.

We’ll let Upton take it from here…

“Genevieve Upton Verlander. 11.7.18,” Kate simply wrote, confirming that the newborn came into official existence this past Wednesday.

She included with this message a gorgeous black-and-white snapshot of little Genevieve…

… and here it is!

Well done, Kate and Justin.

Verlander, who works as one of the best starting pitchers in all of Major League Baseball, posted a photo of the couple holding their little one’s hand.

He wrote as a caption:

“Welcome to the world Genevieve Upton Verlander. You stole my [heart] the first second I met you!!! 11.7.2018.”

Verlander also penned a sweet message to Upton after the couple confirmed her pregnancy in July.

“You’re going to be the most amazing Mom!! I can’t wait to start this new journey with you!” he gushed on Instagram at the time, adding:

“You’re the most thoughtful, loving, caring, and strong woman I’ve ever met! I’m so proud that our little one is going to be raised in this world by a woman like you! I love you so much.”

Upton and Verlander got married the knot in Tuscany, Italy, in November of 2017, mere days after the pitcher and the Houston Astros won the 2017 World Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

During the baseball season that recently concluded, Verlander credited Upton for turning both his career and his life around.

Speaking to Bleacher Report about his outlook after going through multiple injuries, Verlander said the following a few months ago:

“Who knows if I’m even here if it wasn’t for her?

“I really thought it was the end. … She was instrumental in me not … like, jumping off a bridge.”

Wow, huh?

And now she’s also been also rather instrumental in Verlander becoming a dad.

We send these two our very best wishes.
