Former “Basketball Wives LA” star Brittish Williams, a single mother of one and known for her rocky relationship with basketball player Lorenzo Gordon, has been shockingly indicted on federal fraud charges in St. Louis according to STL Today.

Reportedly, the ex-reality star was indicted by a federal grand jury on September 22, 2021 on five felony charges of misuse of a Social Security number, four charges of bank fraud, three charges of making false statements to the IRS, three charges of wire fraud, and three charges of aggravated identity theft.

Brittish was reportedly arrested Thursday and pleaded not guilty to those charges in U.S. District Court in St. Louis the same day, court records obtained by STL Today show.

Prosecutors detailed all FIVE of Williams’ alleged offenses in documents, alleging she used false Social Security numbers in 2017 to obtain loans, lines of credit, and other funds from financial institutions. They claim in 2018 and 2019, Williams deposited four checks ranging in value between $4,500 and $5,800 into accounts that she controlled and withdrew the money before the checks bounced or banks realized they were fraudulent, prosecutors said. The owners of the checks were unaware of the deposits, prosecutors said.

She also allegedly falsely claimed dependents on her 2017-2019 tax returns, using false names and Social Security numbers, prosecutors said.

Brittish appeared on BBWLA in 2014 as well as “Marriage Bootcamp” in 2016 to work out her whirlwind relationship with Lorenzo, but unfortunately, they called it quits. She’s said to be returning to ‘Basketball Wives’ for their new season.

On Instagram, she portrays herself as an entrepreneur with multiple streams of income but has unfortunately racked up complaints with the Better Business Bureau in regards to her online boutique, Love of Labels. STL Today reports that the business earned her an F-rating with the consumer watchdog.

 

She also promotees GossipGirlXO, an online clothing and shoe page on Shopify, and recently teased a $750 webinar on breaking into the trucking business.

 

In regards to the fraud allegations, Williams’ lawyer, Jason Korner, said his client “has been targeted because of her celebrity, and I expect that to be clear once the evidence is produced.”

Tristan Thompson is expecting a baby with a Texas personal trainer, DailyMail.com reports.

The NBA star already has son Prince, 4, with ex-girlfriend and Instagram model Jordan Craig, and daughter True Thompson with ex-girlfriend and IG model Khloe Kardashian, 37.

DailyMail.com posted exclusive photos of heavily pregnant Maralee Nichols, 31, of Houston, Texas, who filed a paternity suit against Thompson.

Nichols is due to give birth to their son on December 3, according to the Mail.

In his response to the suit, the 30-year-old Sacramento Kings star insisted he and Nichols had sexual intercourse only twice in Texas, and he is demanding the case be moved to Texas instead of California.

According to Thompson, the baby was conceived in a Houston hotel room, and the case should be heard in the state, where judges are more conservative.

Thompson readily acknowledges he had sex with Nichols after they attended his 30th birthday bash in Houston in March.

He said she drove him to the event in her Maserati sportscar before returning to his hotel where she had “a special birthday surprise” for him — meaning sex.

Thompson claims that night was the only time he was intimate with Nichols. In court papers he suggested she entrapped him.

“When we got to my hotel room, we immediately had sexual intercourse. Petitioner [Nichols] initiated our sexual contact and never objected to our having sexual intercourse. She was very awake and conscious and did not exhibit any signs that she was other than a willing participant in our sexual activities.

“We did not drink at my hotel room and Petitioner was not drunk. After we had sexual intercourse, Petitioner specifically asked me if she could spend the night because it was my ‘special birthday’ as she called it.

“I told her I had to get up early in the morning but she said it would not be an issue for her. After we had sexual intercourse, we went to bed.”

He confessed they had sex again before the sun came up.

At the time, the Canadian basketball star was still dating ex-girlfriend Khloe, who believed he had changed his ways.

Adam Schulman & Anne Hathaway

Anne Hathaway & husband Adam Schulman looked simply stunning on Thursday as they stepped out for a date night at Soho House in New York City.

Anne Hathaway, 39, and her handsome hubby, Adam Schulman, 40, stepped out in NYC on Thursday evening, walking into Soho House in the Meatpacking District for a date night. The couple, who just celebrated their ninth wedding anniversary in September, held hands as they walked into the establishment, both looking stylish for the occasion at the members-only club.

While Adam wore a navy pea coat, black chinos, and black sneakers, Anne opted for a black turtleneck mini dress over sheer black tights, pairing the look with knee-high black leather boots, a black, quilted bag, and a herringbone-pattern gray mid-length coat. The pair, who share sons Jack, 1, and Jonathan, 5, seemed to have gotten a babysitter for their stylish night out, as Adam wore a face mask for the occasion while Anne went mask-free as she walked from the black SUV to the swanky locale.

The night out in NYC marks another this past week for the couple, who were also rumored to have taken their children to The Nutcracker ballet with pals Bradley Cooper, 46, Irina Shayk, 35, and their daughter, Lea, 4.

Anne and Adam seemed to be enjoying mom & dad’s night out, as both have remained busy this year after their second child was born right before the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic began. The pair were also spotted back in March out to dinner in Santa Monica, California, that time with their two adorable sons in tow.

Anne has also maintained a full schedule despite production complications from the pandemic, next starring in the seven-episode series Solos. And, in 2022, Anne will join Chance the Rapper and Bo Burnham in the Sesame Street film and has three other projects in production — Bum’s RushArmageddon Time, and The Lifeboat. In addition to those projects, the Oscar-winning actress has even more films in production, showing how much the pandemic can’t slow her down!
