Tampa Bay, you remember the reality TV show "Tiny and Toya" right? Well, Lil Wayne's ex-wife Toya Wright was arrested in College Park, GA on Tuesday, and according to TMZ, details surrounding the situation are unclear. She was reportedly pulled over and police noticed that she had a warrant out for her arrest, which was rumored to have came about after she failed to show up for court. Another unclear piece of information stems from why she was in court to begin with.
Toya has yet to speak out on the situation after being released on $290 bond, but it's clear from her mugshot that she's none too happy about getting locked up. Check out the photo above!

Tampa Bay, no surprise to me but; TMZ Sports has obtained official documents which detail the current stresses Manny Pacquiao is facing regarding his dealings or lack-thereof, with the IRS. He is being accused of failing to pay Uncle Sam a total of $18,313,668.79 between the years of 2006 to 2010. Below is a yearly list of what Manny owes according to the documents:
2006 — $1,160,324.30
2007 — $2,035,992.50
2008 — $2,862,437.11
2009 — $8,022,915.87
2010 — $4,231,999.01
On top of his U.S. tax stress, Manny is currently facing a $50 million tax battle from his homeland of the Philippines as their government claims that he owes them that monstrous amount from 2008 and 2009. Things have gotten so bad for Manny out there that the Philippines has frozen his bank accounts he had open in the country, and also placed a lien on his expensive properties.
Hopefully he can get those numbers straightened out without having to suffer punishment beyond paying money, which could include 3 meals a day inside of a jail cell.
NFL legend Jim Brown was the featured guest on The Arsenio Hall Show recently, and during his visit Brown spoke on one of the NBA greats, Kobe Bryant. When asked about his thoughts on Kobe, one of the first things Brown said was "He threw Shaq under the bus. And he is somewhat confused about culture, because he was brought up in another country so he doesn't quite fit what's happening in America."
He continued by acknowledging Kobe's superior basketball abilities, however he referred back to a summit many years ago which brought many of the top Black athletes together to speak with Muhammad Ali about his position against the armed forces, and Jim explained that he wouldn't invite Kobe if there was a summit occurring presently.
"In the days when we had a summit and called the top Black athletes together to talk to Muhammad Ali about his status with the armed forces, there were some athletes we didn't call. If I had to call that summit all over there'd be some athletes I wouldn't call. Kobe would be one of them."

Tampa Bay, I am happy to report that Jay Z and Dame Dash had a friendly reunion earlier this year and proved that they're still on good terms as they hung backstage at Jay's recent show in Los Angeles. Dame posted a photo on his Instagram page, hanging out with his daughter Ava and Jay backstage, which he captioned "@ava_dash and I had a ball yesterday...haven't seen this dude perform in years."
Earlier this year, Jay spoke to Angie Martinez about still having love for Dame, despite their past, "The thing we built , you can't take that away so no matter what, the love is still there. Because what we've done will forever be stamped in history... We created something that's gonna go down forever. So I can only have love for Dame. I just don't know where we are in our life–We're not the same two men at that time when we gelled in that way. I haven't seen him in a while. I have ultimate confidence in him that he'll find his way 'cause he's an amazing and smart guy.... He's a hustler and he's highly intelligent, so I always root for him and always believe that he'll find his way out of it. But I can't control what happens life."
