The Brooklyn Nets has suspended all-star guard Kyrie Irving from playing or practicing with the team.

General manager Sean Marks announced on Tuesday that Irving “will not play or practice” with the team unless or until he is vaccinated.

“Given the evolving nature of the situation and after thorough deliberation, we have decided Kyrie Irving will not play or practice with the team until he is eligible to be a full participant,” Marks said in a statement Tuesday morning.

“Kyrie has made a personal choice, and we respect his individual right to choose. Currently the choice restricts his ability to be a full-time member of the team, and we will not permit any member of our team to participate with part-time availability.”

New York City mayor Bill de Blasio announced strict Covid-19 vaccine mandates for all state buildings, restaurants and gyms.

However, authorities declared the Nets practice facility to be a “private office building” and thus exempt from the mandate.

Irving was willing to forfeit $16 million — nearly half of his annual $34 million salary because he is ineligible to play in 43 home games.

On Sunday, Nets coach Steve Nash said Irving’s status was unclear.

“I think we recognize that he’s not playing home games. We’re going to have to play without him this year. So it just depends on when, where and how much.”

The NBA previously stated all players who refused the Covid-19 mRNA vaccine would forfeit their paychecks for every game they missed.

Irving stood to lose $381,000 for every game he missed.

90 Day Fiance’s Brittany Banks Shows Off 22 Lbs Weight Loss

VIDEO: 90 Day Fiance's Brittany Banks Shows Off 22 Lbs Weight Loss, Shares Diet and Workout Routine After Stunning Transformation

90 Day Fiance’s Brittany Banks is single and ready to mingle. But we have a feeling she won’t be single for long as her recent body transformation has her looking hot, hot, hot.

Brittany reveals the final number on the scale after her dramatic transformation, is 130 lbs, which means her final weight loss is 70 pounds!

Brittany showed off her brand new body in an Instagram post of her sporting a flashy new bikini. The caption revealed hints at how she achieved her weight loss success.

Brittany revealed that she had added walking to her fitness routine and made some “focused tweaks” to her diet regimen.

She went on to say that if she ever wanted to go back up in weight and be a little curvier, she would just add proteins and carbs back into her diet.

Thanks for the tips, Brittany!

While Brittany’s health has never been better, her love life has taken some serious hits over the past few years.

During 90 Day Fiance, Brittany had flown to Jordan to be with her ex-boyfriend Yazan Abu Harira but almost as soon as she stepped off the plane, the two began having problems and fans wondered if their relationship would make it.

Yazan came from a strict Muslim background and felt Brittany should mold to fit that lifestyle, starting with her clothes. Yazan had asked Brittany to dress more conservatively and she did not take it well. But her reaction to that paled in comparison to the one at Yazan’s request that Brittany converts to Islam within three days of her arrival. Ultimately Brittany felt the rules and regulations of Yazan’s lifestyle were too controlling for her taste.

Brittany’s bombshell that she was still legally married to her ex,  did not help matters between the tense couple and his family. Finally, the couple decided to part ways after months of a tumultuous relationship and Brittany flew back to the United States.

Brittany appeared on the 90 Day Fiance spin-off  90 Day: The Single Life and dated two men on that series, but ultimately neither panned out and Brittany remained single.

So now Brittany is focusing fully on her health and new fitness-toned body. But knowing Brittany, a new love interest can’t be far behind.

Brooke Shields, 56, Rocks A Strapless Red Swimsuit As She Goes For A Dip On Thanksgiving — Photos

Brooke Shields braved a cold plunge pool on Thanksgiving, but looked amazing while doing it!

Brooke Shields, 56, looked absolutely amazing in a strapless red swimsuit on Thanksgiving! The actress donned the one piece on Thursday, Nov. 25 as she bravely stepped into a cold plunge pool, which are believed to reduce muscle pain and inflammation by instantly numbing the nerves surrounding joints. She appropriately set the video to Bill Withers “Lovely Day” — although, we aren’t sure that cold water was that lovely!

“New Thanksgiving tradition,” The Blue Lagoon star quipped in her caption, including a turkey and snowflake emoji. While the weather looked sunny, it was more like a spring day in Los Angeles with temperatures falling around 70 degrees. Brooke hilariously reacted to the cold water as she dipped a toe in, opting to keep her long brunette locks up in a bun to avoid getting wet. She slowly backed into the water, rigidly putting her arms in before fully lowering her body and shoulders.

Several of her famous pals got a kick out of the pic, including Christie Brinkley, 67. “Body-ody-ody‼️” the super model commented with three fire emojis, seemingly referencing “Body” by Megan Thee Stallion. Ali Wentworth quipped, “You’re supposed to cook the Turkey not yourself…” while Sophia Bush reacted, “Cold plunge!? LOVE.” Canadian television host Kuljeet Kaila hilariously added, “In Cali? That’s like Canadian summer weather.”

It’s no surprise to see Brooke looking so good: the actress recently opened up about feeling more “confident” as she hit her mid-50s. “I feel stronger, I feel sexier, I feel less burdened by: ‘Oh, what do they think of me?’” she said in an interview to Irish Times while promoting her new Netflix movie A Castle For Christmas.

“I’m not encumbered in the same way that I spent a great deal of my youth in. I still care about people, but I don’t put myself in this position to feel ‘less than’. And all of a sudden, I was like: ‘Why am I not represented?’ Why am I told: ‘You’re over because you’re not in your 20s’? I’m 56 and I feel more empowered now than I ever did,’” she added.

Officials in Lubbock, Texas have not charged a married man who fatally shot his mistress’ ex-husband during a child custody dispute.

Chad Read’s widow Jennifer Read released cell phone footage of the verbal altercation that led to Read’s fatal shooting.

In the video, 54-year-old father Chad Read is seen arguing with his ex-wife Christina Read’s new boyfriend Kyle Carruth.

Carruth is heard telling Read to “get off my property.”

Read was there to pick up a son he had with ex-wife Christina Read.

At one point, Carruth went inside the house to retrieve a rifle while Read continued arguing with Christina Read outside.

“Where’s my son at? I’ll go get him. I’m supposed to have him at 3:15,” Chad Read is heard telling Christina Read. “And you’re playing games telling me that I can pick him up at six? I’ve already got the cops on the way to your mom’s house… Because that’s probably where he is.”

Then, Carruth emerged from the house with the rifle and the two men briefly argued on the front porch.

Carruth fired a warning shot at Read’s feet before firing two shots into Read’s chest, killing him.

According to Jennifer Read, Carruth was angry that Read threatened to expose his extramarital affair to his wife, Judge Ann-Marie Carruth whose jurisdiction is the 72nd District Court in Crosby and Lubbock counties.

Through her attorney, Jennifer Read released a statement along with her cell phone footage.

In an affidavit, Jennifer Read accused Christina Read and Kyle Carruth of engaging “in a conspiracy” to murder Chad Read to silence him.

In a Facebook post, Jennifer Read wrote:

“Please share. Make this go viral. Does this look like a man in fear of his life or the life of others? Look at that smile. He is a cold blooded murderer.”
