Drake self-isolates after a night out with Kevin Durant. 50 Cent wants to see rival Rick Ross in court. Social distancing is difficult when you run into your ex – just ask model Alessandra Ambrosio!
Here’s a closer look at some of today’s stories:
Drake self-isolates after partying with Kevin Durant before coronavirus diagnosis
Drake is self-isolating at his mansion in Toronto after partying with Nets star Kevin Durant just days before Durant was diagnosed with coronavirus, Page Six is told.
The pals hung out at West Hollywood hotspot Nice Guy eight days ago, with Drake posting a photo of their night out.
The Nets were in LA to play the Lakers. Durant, who’s recovering from a torn Achilles tendon, did not play — although he did made the trip out West.
Drake posted video from his home basketball court, saying: “My life for the next however long.”
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau this week announced he was closing the country’s borders to foreigners apart from US citizens — and on Wednesday, President Trump said the US and Canada are working together on an agreement to suspend non-essential travel between the two countries while sparing trade.
So it looks like Drake will be at home for quite a while.
A total of four Nets players have tested positive for coronavirus, the team said in a statement, with only one currently showing symptoms.
“All four players are presently isolated and under the care of team physicians,” the team said.
“The organization is currently notifying anyone who has had known contact with the players, including recent opponents, and is working closely with state and local health authorities on reporting. All players and members of the Nets travel party are being asked to remain isolated, closely monitor their health and maintain constant communication with team medical staff. The health of our players and staff is of the highest priority to the organization and the team is doing everything within its power to ensure that those affected receive the best care possible.”
50 Cent may have finally snared Rick Ross in sex tape fallout case
50 Cent could finally get rival rapper Rick Ross to appear in the seemingly endless lawsuit that Fiddy’s been waging against his old law firm Reed Smith.
As part of the $32 million civil case in Atlanta, Fiddy’s alleged that his former law firm failed to secure evidence and testimony from Ross regarding the posting of a sex tape featuring Ross’ former girlfriend Lastonia Leviston.
Leviston successfully sued 50 Cent for allegedly posting the tape. She famously won a $7 million judgment after claiming she was caused “intentional emotional stress.” But 50 Cent claims that Ross posted the tape first. His current lawyers say they’ve been trying to subpoena Ross since last year, and they claim that Ross has managed to avoid process servers in the case — who’ve tried to serve him at his home, at a Boston hotel, and at a show. On March 11, a judge ordered Ross to accept the subpoena and to be deposed on March 25.
Fiddy’s lawyer, Imran H. Ansari, told Page Six, in a statement, of the latest twist: “Rick Ross has been trying to duck this deposition since last year, and having not shown up for a hearing before a federal judge in Georgia last week, we are pleased with the judge’s decision to put an end to his evasiveness by making him accept a subpoena from my client and testify.”
Ross’ rep did not immediately get back to us. Then again, it remains to be seen amid the coronavirus scare if the deposition takes place in person or via video.
The firm Reed Smith has denied all the allegations.
