Monica famously claimed that Shannon — best known for his time with the Lakers — performed better on the court after he had sex with her … especially when he played for the Phoenix Suns.

Jussie Smollett Charges DROPPED

Prosecutors have dropped ALL charges against Jussie Smollett with that his record will being wiped clean.

Jussie has agreed forfeit his $10,000 bond.

“After reviewing all of the facts and circumstances of the case, including Mr. Smollett’s volunteer service in the community and agreement to forfeit his bond to the City of Chicago, we believe this outcome is a just disposition and appropriate resolution to this case,” the Cook County State’s Attorney’s office stated in an email.

Sources say Superintendent Eddie Johnson is “furious” and that he received no notification about the charges being dropped.

Jussie’s attorney released a statement.

“Today, all criminal charges against Jussie Smollett were dropped and his record has been wiped clean of the filing of this tragic complaint against him. Jussie was attacked by two people he was unable to identify on January 29th. He was a victim who was vilified and made to appear as a perpetrator as a result of false and inappropriate remarks made to the public causing an inappropriate rush to judgement,” spokeswoman Anne Kavanaugh stated in an email.

“Jussie and many others were hurt by these unfair and unwarranted actions. This entire situation is a reminder that there should never be an attempt to prove a case in the court of public opinion. That is wrong. It is a reminder that a victim, in this case Jussie, deserves dignity and respect. Dismissal of charges against the victim in this case was the only just result.

“Jussie is relieved to have this situation behind him and is very much looking forward to getting back to focusing on his family, friends and career.”

Ummm Stay tuned…

Charlamagne Tha God On Old Mentor Wendy Williams ‘The Real Rehab She Needs Is From Kevin’

Wendy Williams’ is currently residing in a sober house, her husband Kevin’s mistress reportedly just gave birth last week, and now Wendy’s former friend amd coworker Charlamagne tha God is letting us in on why their friendship ended.

Charlamagne told Page Six “The real rehab she needs is from Kevin Hunter.”

via Page Six:

Famed New York “Breakfast Club” host Charlamagne Tha God — who was a mentee of Williams and a former pal of her husband — tells Page Six that his friendship with Hunter and Williams, who married in 1997, blew up over Sharina.

Charlamagne got his big break as Williams’ radio sidekick. The DJ and TV star — who began working with Williams on a radio show on 107.5 WBLS around 2006 — told us that he and Hudson (with whom he was not romantically involved) were longtime pals in their hometown of Columbia, South Carolina, and he had introduced Hunter to the woman at a party around that time.

When Charlamagne moved to New York for work with Williams, Hudson came too and they both moved into a condo — rent-free — owned by Williams and Hunter in Fort Lee, New Jersey.

It is believed at the time Hunter was paying for Hudson to go to school in the city to get a massage license, but Charlamagne believes Hunter was either hoping to start or had started an affair with her at the time.

Charlamagne claims that Hunter was unusually possessive over Hudson and furious with him for introducing her to other men. “Mind you, Kevin was married to Wendy at the time,” he said.“The reason Kevin Hunter and I fell out, and the reason why I don’t communicate with Wendy anymore is because of Sharina,” Charlamagne told us, describing an incident in 2009. “Kevin got upset because he thought Sharina liked one of my homeboys and he thought that I was hooking Sharina up [with other men].”

As Charlamagne and Williams continued to work together on their radio show, Hunter — Williams’ manager and a producer of her show — became more difficult, he claims. When she landed her syndicated daytime talk show in 2008, Charlamagne filmed street skits and interviews for Williams.

But he claims Hunter became even more controlling, and started to push him out. Hunter eventually fired Charlamagne, telling him never to contact Williams again, allegedly saying, “You are dead to us.”

After that incident, Charlamagne said, “Kevin has literally gone out of his way to try to stop my livelihood, to cut my head off and stop me from other jobs. He has done it a couple of times. Kevin has definitely got a couple of cease and desist letters from my attorney.”

He added that Williams — whom friends have described as being totally under the control of her husband, who manages all of her affairs — hasn’t spoken to him since, and even denied knowing who he was during an interview with Elvis Duran.

Ike Turner is that you!?.
