Gambling and Some Interesting Celebrity Breaks

Gambling is something which is considered a luxury sport. It is a pastime and an occasion for many people to network and grow. Many people have had great fortune through gambling and have become celebrities from rags. However, there have been many other stories which have made rags out of celebrities, too. It’s interesting to know how addicted our role models could be to gamble that they end up earning for gambling, sacrifice, family/relationships for gambling and what-not. So, let’s not waste time and talk about some interesting celebrity stories, which you might not have known. 1. Tiger Woods Well who does not like Tiger Woods and when did Tiger need introductions anyway? But the habit of gambling by Tiger might be unexplored. As per our sources, Tiger was introduced to gambling by Michael Jordan and Charles Barkley. Gambling became an addiction soon when he started hanging out with Michael and Charles a little too much. It is rumored that Tiger has a whopping $1 million limit in most reputable casinos in Vegas. Well, now you know where Tiger’s whopping brand endorsements and high golf contract prices are ending up. Also, Tiger does not believe in playing for smaller amounts and usually takes part in high stakes games of at least $25,000. Tiger highly appreciated his kind of table set up in casinos. The Mansion at MGM Grand Las Vegas is his favorite gambling destination. He has always loved a table for himself that was surrounded by party girls. Gambling and tables surrounded by party girls were one of the prime reasons that cost Tiger a divorce from his wife. Considering the expense of divorce which cost about $750 million and a relationship, gambling was a costly choice made by the famous golfer. 2. Michael Phelps Michael Phelps is one of the greatest swimmers the world has ever known. He is a famous Olympian who has won 28 Olympic medals for his country and has brought so much glory to his country and himself. This is the highest number of Olympic medals any individual has won, which is what has brought the swimmer a peaceful retirement life in his early thirties. He is retired now and is just 32 years of age but has achieved remarkable heights which certainly will define him for a lifetime. But, one lesser known fact or habit of Michael was gambling. He had a habit of not accepting defeat and a ‘try until you win’ attitude, which earned him a lot of success at Olympics. However, this isn’t the case with gambling. If you lose, you continue to lose heavily, and it is all about luck and fortune as the results are not directly proportional to the attempts or efforts. It took loads of time for Michael to understand this and sources say that he was into gambling so much that it sometimes happened for eight straight hours. This problem persisted with Michael during 2012. He was also caught for drinking and driving near a casino in Maryland, where he was probably stressed after a straight eight hours of continuous gambling. His life had become very stressed as he wasn’t used to losing and was desperate to win no matter what it had cost. This kept pushing him to despair. Somehow with the help of his friends and close ones, he came out of the gambling habit and now is leaving a peaceful and comfortable life. 3. Tobey Maguire Tobey the on-screen Spider-Man is as cool and smart in the real life as he is in his movies. He took some tips from a poker player Daniel Negreanu and turned out to make a fortune of $10 million. As per his close friends, tips from Daniel who is a professional poker player helped him make over $10 million. He also participated in a World Series of Poker tournament, which was the time when he encountered Daniel who probably changed his fortune. But, Tobey’s gambling habits got him to a legal hurdle. He, with some of the other influential celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio and Ben Affleck, were found to be participating in underground poker games, which are considered illegal due to the unaccounted money at stake. In the year, 2011 Tobey faced a lawsuit for organizing an illegal ring of underground poker. He didn’t take a financial loss due to gambling but a lawsuit against the Spider-Man certainly harmed his popularity. But, compared to other celebrities on the list, Tobey certainly gained a lot more than he lost due to gambling! 4. Allen Iverson Allen Iverson is a very famous professional basketball champion. The basketball player has retired now but played 14 seasons in NBA tournaments. Gambling had brought him loads of trouble for which Allen who was nicknamed as ‘The Answer’ had no answers. His case was probably the reverse of Tobey. Allen managed to lose over $200 million through gambling. Yes, you read it right — $200 million — only through gambling. This famous basketball player had received several heights in his career and received contracts of a lifetime from Reebok. However, due to gambling, he had lost a great deal of his money and was in severe debt and literally had to beg his teammates to pay off such a debt. Also, during the end of his career, he lost the lifetime contract from Reebok as his gambling debts and other negative news reports started surfacing. Allen’s wife filed for divorce and a statement by Allen read that he does not even have money to buy a cheeseburger and hence, he cannot afford any alimony. Casinos in Atlantic City and Detroit had banned Allen due to his inability to pay off his debts. This is a true story of a hero to zero only because of gambling! 5. Ben Affleck We had Ben Affleck’s name popping up with Spider-Man Tobey. The ‘Batman’ actor who will be seen in more ‘Justice League’ movies has had his share of gambling issues. His gambling venture... Gambling is something which is considered a luxury sport. It is a pastime and an occasion for many people to network and grow.

Casinos in Atlantic City and Detroit had banned Allen due to his inability to pay off his debts. This is a true story of a hero to zero only because of gambling! 5. Ben Affleck We had Ben Affleck’s name popping up with Spider-Man Tobey. The ‘Batman’ actor who will be seen in more ‘Justice League’ movies has had his share of gambling issues. His gambling venture wasn’t so beneficial as the super hit 2013 movie ‘Runner, Runner’ and is rumored to have been to a rehab center to come outside or quit the habit of gambling. His interest towards gambling is natural as he won the CA State Poker Championship in 2004. He is also fond of the game blackjack. We are not sure of the financials, but Ben was exposed to quite some mental pressure due to gambling. 6. Ray Romano Ray is an actor, stand-up comedian, and is known for the popular TV show, ‘Everybody Loves Raymond.’ He has also received an Emmy award for his role in the hit TV show. He has given his voice for Manny in the ‘Ice Age’ movies. The 60-year-old actor was one of the first actors who began receiving huge paychecks for TV shows. In 2009, he went on to produce a show called ‘Men of a Certain Age.’ The show had a character named ‘Joe’ who was a gambling addict and he tried his best to stay away from it as much as possible. It was a surprise to note that the character of Joe was based on Ray himself, which was something the actor later admitted. Ray still participates in several poker events, but he now knows about his limited skill sets and hopefully is only doing so for fun or as a leisure activity. He isn’t going to casinos now and prefers online poker and similar gambling in smaller amounts. As revealed in the TV series based on Ray himself, he used to seek help from different people anonymously when the gambling debt took over his financial peace. 7. Joe Francis Joe Francis the ever so controversial film producer named for many controversies and publicities. The businessman had been accused by several actresses for casting couch and inappropriate behavior. He is best known for the ‘Girls Gone Wild’ series. Wynn Hotels and others have filed a legal suit against him for unpaid gambling debts. Allegedly or surprisingly, the debt of over $2 million Wynn was given a discount of about 30 percent. 8. John McCain John is a sort of political celebrity in the United States as a senior senator in the state of Arizona. At over 80 years of age, John was a Republican candidate in the 2008 elections against Barack Obama. However, from sources and close friends, it was learned that John had at a time in his life been very addicted to gambling. A stretch of eight hours of gambling and ten hours of poker all are in shame where John had stretched for over 14-16 hours on the table. The extent to which he was attached to gambling was worrying and it certainly affected his choices during his senior senator regime. 9. Charlie Sheen Charlie Sheen has given us many entrepreneurs or trading goals by his role in the very famous movie ‘Wall Street.’ With a bucket of hit films and tremendous fan following, Charlie is one of the most controversial actors that the industry has ever known. He has recently surfaced for non-payment of taxes. He owes over $5 million in taxes which is a huge problem, especially for such a celebrity. He is also known for various other controversies that include drugs, alcohol, women, etc. Now coming to his gambling updates, he is known to be a huge gambling addict as revealed by his former spouse during his divorce case. Charlie was in contact with a bookie even while transporting his wife to the hospital while she was pregnant before the birth of his daughter. Clearly, gambling had gained the highest priority in his life over the welcoming of his own daughter and this certainly weakened his personal family ties. Also, the report exposed that Charlie in his peak lost over $200,000 every week — all thanks to gambling. This surfaced in 2006 and about eight years later, Charlie told his fans and the media that he has overcome gambling and doesn’t do it anymore. But controversies still follow him with tax evasion and non-payment and we hope he loses all of his bad habits soon. 10. Charles Barkley Another basketball player who has lost huge in gambling is Charles Barkley. After retirement, Charlies is working as an analyst in the NBA tournament. The 55-year-old also had been struggling due to gambling. Charles confessed to having lost about $30 million because of his gambling addiction. He also took counseling and then a break for two years from gambling but is a very difficult addiction, he is back to gambling now. Now he admits to gambling in casinos but in a much more controlled, monitored, and restricted manner. You never know, you might have new news story surfacing about a new gambling debt from Charles, as gambling is a galloping enterprise and you are always playing with trouble. Let’s Learn from Celebrities and Let’s Go Gambling Big celebrities have been in huge gambling troubles and it is certainly worthy to learn from their experiences and be as distant as possible from gambling activities. We have seen many stories and there are very few people who have made a fortune from gambling. Most importantly, we must make sure it never becomes a habit and addiction. Addiction to any activity can be very harmful and these celebrities have already experienced these issues. If people at such heights are not spared by a gambling addiction, it is very difficult for us to remain sheltered. So, to end the celebrity gambling league, gambling occasionally isn’t bad, but making it a source of income, or a habit or addiction should be avoided. [Photo Credit: Pixabay].....»»

Sry, Tyrese! Vin Diesel Sides With Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson In The Latest Fast & Furious Drama That Includes The Rock"s Response!

What's one thing stronger than family? Franchise growth opportunities! And it looks that Vin Diesel is putting business before blood in the latest chapter of… "the Fast and the Furious cast's online beefs." For the past few weeks, Tyrese Gibson has been begging Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson NOT to go forward with a solo Hobbs spinoff movie [...] What's one thing stronger than family? Franchise growth opportunities! And it looks that Vin Diesel is putting business before blood in the latest chapter of... "the Fast and the Furious cast's online beefs." For the past few weeks, Tyrese Gibson has been begging Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson NOT to go forward with a solo Hobbs spinoff movie as it would push back the release of Fast & Furious 9 -- and, more importantly, Gibson's paycheck. After The Rock officially signed on for the spinoff with Jason Statham -- effectively postponing Fast 9 from April 19, 2019 to an April 10, 2020 release -- Gibson attacked his costar on Instagram for what he claimed was hijacking the franchise while kicking the #FastFam to the curb. Related: Michelle Rodriguez Threatens To Quit Fast & Furious Over Treatment Of Female Characters! Of course, it didn't take long for other members of the crew to chime in on the beef. But the response of one cast member in particular has caught us by surprise! Diesel addressed the dispute on Instagram over the weekend and made it clear he was siding with The Rock, despite their well documented PR stunt social media quarrel last year. Captioning a snap of himself and Johnson from Fast 5, the 50-year-old defended the Hobbs spinoff, noting it was the perfect way to hold fans over while Universal does some much needed maintenance on the rest of the Fast franchise. Not only that, Vin totally took credit for bringing Johnson on board in the first place! (Look away, Tyrese!): Brotherhood... and all it's complexities. This scene was filmed in Puerto Rico, I can remember it like it was yesterday. Such a beautiful island, the people were so warm and welcoming. I turned 43 that summer... and my son Vincent was born. A woman named Jan Kelly responded to a question I had asked on Facebook, 'who they would like to see me work with?' She said would love to see me work with Dwayne... I listened to her request and he became Hobbs. I know there has been a lot of speculation as to why the Fast 9 release date was pushed... but it would be unfair to say it is anyone's fault. As we plot the course to expand the Fast & Furious universe, one must be mindful to take stock of the roads we took to get here. The pillars of authenticity, family and most importantly, our loyal fan’s perspective has been instrumental in procuring success. However, like any vehicle that has run around the globe 8 times, the franchise is in need of maintenance. My good friend and the godfather of Universal, Ron Meyer has granted me the time to do just that. We have some very exciting news to share soon... stay tuned. Yours truly, Dom #FamilyAlwaysA post shared by Vin Diesel (@vindiesel) on Oct 6, 2017 at 8:15pm PDT On Monday, The Rock also addressed the controversy head on in -- what else? -- an Instagram caption, explaining that the Hobbs movie would "create greater opportunities for not only my fellow FF cast mates, but for other amazing actors as well who want to be a part of something new and cool." The WWE star promised to use his spinoff platform for the good of the fans by creating "new characters that fans will ultimately love to have fun with in multiple chapters and platforms." He shared: Daddy’s gotta go back to work ~ Hobbs. Pumped to expand and build out the FAST & FURIOUS universe in a cool, exciting way with our @sevenbucksprod, writer/producer Chris Morgan, producer Hiram Garcia and lead producer and my bigger twin, Neil Moritz. Thank you UNIVERSAL STUDIOS for being tremendous partners who see the big picture and for coming to us years ago with this spinoff idea. Huge shout to my brother, Jason Statham for the trust and wanting to create and deliver something fresh and bad ass for the fans. I have a tremendous amount of respect for this franchise that I’ve enjoyed droppin’ blood and sweat in over the years and my vision is to create greater opportunities for not only my fellow FF cast mates, but for other amazing actors as well who want to be a part of something new and cool. I want to use my spinoff platform to create new characters that fans will ultimately love to have fun with in multiple chapters and platforms. Film, TV, Digital, Virtual Reality etc.. the more opportunities we can create the better for the fans. Smart business. Let’s have some FUN and to quote, Hobbs the boss, if you don’t like it, we’re happy to beat that ass like a Cherokee drum. #HOBBS #SevenBucksProds #NewOpportunities #CandyAssesNeedNotApply JULY 2019A post shared by therock (@therock) on Oct 9, 2017 at 9:41am PDT Well, looks like Tyrese has no choice but to get on board now.

If you didn’t know, over the summer, the 37-year-old comedian was awarded millions of dollars after winning a defamation lawsuit. Now, she’s firing back at the publications that are “whining” and “trying to get it reduced.” ‘They’re whining about the amount they’re going to have to pay me and trying to get it reduced, which is really gross considering that I’m giving the money to charity,” Rebel said on Seven Network’s Sunday Night program (via Daily Mail.) Articles published in 2015 defamed Rebel by trying to make it seem like she was lying about her age and other details about her life. “It was so, so satisfying that the jury voted with me. It was such an overwhelming, comprehensive victory that it was just amazing. I’ve proved very publicly that what I was saying was the truth and that they wrote a bunch of lies, and that I was maliciously defamed,” she said. “So it was very, very satisfying to win.” Rebel was awarded $650,000 in general damages and $3,917,472 in special damages......»»

Emma Thompson Slams "Predator" Harvey Weinstein, Says We"re Dealing With A "Crisis Of Extreme Masculinity"

"Open your eyes, and open your mouths and say something." That was queen Emma Thompson's message to men and women in a new interview on BBC Newsnight that aired on Thursday following bombshell reports outing Hollywood big wig Harvey Weinstein as a serial sexual assaulter. Topple the patriarchy, Em! We're right there with you! Related: Was TIME Magazine [...] "Open your eyes, and open your mouths and say something." That was queen Emma Thompson's message to men and women in a new interview on BBC Newsnight that aired on Thursday following bombshell reports outing Hollywood big wig Harvey Weinstein as a serial sexual assaulter. Topple the patriarchy, Em! We're right there with you! Related: Was TIME Magazine Wrong To Put Harvey On Their New Cover?? The Oscar winner slammed the filmmaker's gross behavior -- and emphasized that he's definitely not the only male exec in the industry abusing his position of power. The 58-year-old explained: "I didn't know about these things, but they don't surprise me at all, and they're endemic to the system. What I find sort of extraordinary is that this man is at the top of a very particular iceberg, you know he's — I don't think you can describe him as a ‘sex addict,' he's a predator. But what he's, as it were, at the top of the ladder of is a system of harassment, and belittling, and bullying, and interference, and what my mother would have referred to in the old days as ‘pestering.' ‘Is he pestering you?' That's the word we used to use in the olden days, if you recall. This has been part of our world, women's world, since time immemorial. So what we need to start talking about is the crisis in masculinity, the crisis of extreme masculinity, which is this sort of behavior, and the fact that it is not only OK, but it also is represented by the most powerful man in the world at the moment." When asked if she thinks there are other men like Harvey out there, Emma replied "of course, many," without hesitation: "Maybe not to that degree. Do they have to all be as bad as him to make it count? Does it only count if you really have done it to loads and loads and loads of woman? Or does it count if you do it to one woman once? I think the latter." She even added her own experience with harassment as she "spent my twenties trying to get old men's tongues out of my mouth." Ugh!! Sad, but unfortunately the reality for so many women. Watch her insightful interview (below)!

Kermit The Frog Actor Says He Had "No Advance Warning" Before Being Fired By Disney! See His Salty Interview!

Steve Whitmire thought he was giving good creative notes… but that's none of his business anymore. The longtime voice of Kermit the Frog opened up about being fired by Disney in an appearance on Today, responding to the claims that he had been "difficult" and "demanding" during his time on The Muppets. Related: BBC Comments On Doctor [...] Steve Whitmire thought he was giving good creative notes... but that's none of his business anymore. The longtime voice of Kermit the Frog opened up about being fired by Disney in an appearance on Today, responding to the claims that he had been "difficult" and "demanding" during his time on The Muppets. Related: BBC Comments On Doctor Who's First Woman Time Lord! The puppeteer, who provided the voice of Kermit for the past 27 years, was completely blindsided when he learned the company was terminating his contract over "unacceptable business conduct," explaining: "I was stunned. It seemed like it was five minutes of silence. I'm sure it wasn't that long. I just immediately tried to get answers. I had no advance warning on that." The studio begs to differ. In a statement on Monday, The Muppets Studio claimed executives had "raised concerns" about Steve's behavior "over a period of many years and he consistently failed to address the feedback." But the 58-year-old, who began working with The Muppets in the late ‘70s, still claims he was caught off guard, continuing: "Nothing had ever been framed to me as a career breaking problem. In fact, we had been talking prior to that for two years about me becoming sort of a creative producer with them, working alongside the two executives who I spoke to where I would have been really a part of the day to day decision making on The Muppets." Those pulling the strings -- aka The Henson Family -- saw things differently. Jim Henson's son and daughter have both voiced their frustrations with Whitmire, saying he "blackballed" younger performers and would "send emails and letters attacking everyone." Related: Ann Coulter In A Non-Stop Twitter Beef With Delta Airlines! Whitmire did admit he has given executives a lot of feedback, but doesn't think passion makes him the bad guy. He explained in his NBC interview: "I offered notes. I don't think that makes someone difficult. It was totally an idea of trying to do what was best for the Muppets in terms of receiving material and ideas and concepts that were well out of the bounds of the character." As for Lisa Henson's claims the puppeteer thinks he IS Kermit the frog, Whitmire responded: "In my mind, my mentoring with Jim tells me that the minute the Muppets are reduced to being roles that are auditioned for and cast, it takes all of the individuality out of them. Their longevity is completely based on their consistency, and that is just super important, otherwise it's not Kermit or any of the Muppets at all and that's what I tried to push for and be outspoken about." Can't say he didn't give it his all! Watch Whitmire's salty exit interview (below) to hear how Disney tried to silence him! [Image via NBC.].....»»

Lena Dunham’s Ex-girlfriend’s Life “Reduced To Dumb Hetero Normative Gossip”

Corrections and clarifications: In the article “Lena Dunham Single” we mistakingly identified Jack Antonoff as a man. He is in fact a strong powerful woman. Thanks for your understanding.

Corrections and clarifications: In the article “Lena Dunham Single” we mistakingly identified Jack Antonoff as a man. He is in fact a strong powerful woman. Thanks for your understanding. So, yeah, Lena Dunham can now hunker down with her best and closest friends Ben & Jerry while crying over the five-hour-long BBC Pride & Prejudice, because her Mr. Darcy has officially peaced out, leaving her as a single decomposing trash heap of anger and hypocrisy. Except it’s more like her Miss Darcy, because her ex Jack Antonoff – who I have somehow been blessed enough to not know anything about, except that he has excellent taste in manatees – has proudly come out as a bitch in the form of a borderline unreadable statement that would make Lenny Letter contributors want men to have penises again. Antonoff dated Dunham for a staggering five years, and during the last leg of that pride-swallowing journey, contributed to the singer Lorde’s album Melodrama. Tabloids being tabloids are alleging that Antonoff and Lorde formed a romantic relationship in the studio, and Antonoff being a woman, tweeted this response: Normally i would never address rumors but i resent having the most important friendships and working relationships in my life reduced to dumb hetero normative gossip. those relationships are deeply important and sacred. with that said, im not seeing anyone. lol. I mean. My balls just fell off. “Dumb hetero normative gossip? “Deeply important and sacred?” “lol?” Jesus. First off, it’s heartbreaking to hear that in 2018 straight people are still being marginalized. Heterosexuality. What a burden. I see that Antonoff and Dunham found common ground in being victims. Secondly, someone’s having a heavy flow day. Rite ladies?

The post comes days after Tyrese Gibson slammed The Rock for allegedly being the reason for Fast & Furious 9 getting postponed. “Pumped to expand and build out the FAST & FURIOUS universe in a cool, exciting way with our @sevenbucksprod, writer/producer Chris Morgan, producer Hiram Garcia and lead producer and my bigger twin, Neil Moritz,” Dwayne wrote. “Thank you UNIVERSAL STUDIOS for being tremendous partners who see the big picture and for coming to us years ago with this spinoff idea. Huge shout to my brother, Jason Statham for the trust and wanting to create and deliver something fresh and bad ass for the fans.” “I have a tremendous amount of respect for this franchise that I’ve enjoyed droppin’ blood and sweat in over the years and my vision is to create greater opportunities for not only my fellow FF cast mates, but for other amazing actors as well who want to be a part of something new and cool,” he added. “I want to use my spinoff platform to create new characters that fans will ultimately love to have fun with in multiple chapters and platforms. Film, TV, Digital, Virtual Reality etc.. the more opportunities we can create the better for the fans. Smart business.” “Let’s have some FUN and to quote, Hobbs the boss, if you don’t like it, we’re happy to beat that ass like a Cherokee drum,” he concluded. He also added in hashtag format, “Candy asses need not apply.” A post shared by therock (@therock) on Oct 9, 2017 at 9:41am PDT.....»»

On Monday, Donald Trump addressed the nation regarding our country's military strategy in Afghanistan and South Asia, but mainly focused on the former. Related: Donald & Melania Trump Looked At The Total Solar Eclipse Without Glasses Speaking at Fort Myer in Arlington, Virginia, the businessman said his original instinct was to pull out of the 16-year war, but after studying the Middle Eastern country and having meetings, he came to the conclusion that we cannot make a "hasty withdraw." He came to this decision based on three points: the immense security threats from Afghanistan and Pakistan, the "predictable and unacceptable" consequences of a rapid exit (which would create a "vacuum" that terrorists would fill), and the need to endure an outcome worthy of the sacrifices our country has made. Additionally, the U.S. strategy will shift from one based on time to one based on conditions -- where we will never announce our plans to attack. Trump will also integrate all instruments of American power (economic, diplomatic, etc.), change our approach when it comes to dealing with Pakistan (who he says are housing terrorists), team up with India for economic assistance and development, and expand authority and lift restrictions to our armed forces when it comes to targeting terrorists. In his words: "We will fight to win." To see the clip, ch-ch-check it out (below): Video #1 by videosuploaded5566 [Image via Becher/WENN.].....»»
