USC football: Stafon Johnson weight-room accident


USC tailback Stafon Johnson did indeed suffer a throat injury while weightlifting this morning, according to the school’s Web site, which reported that Johnson is undergoing surgery this afternoon.

According to the site, Johnson was bench-pressing with a spotter when the bar slipped out of his hand and landed on his throat.

“It was an unfortunate accident, and Stafon is getting great care right now,” USC coach Pete Carroll said. “We don’t have a lot of information at this point and we’ll keep everyone updated, but our thoughts and prayers are with Stafon.”

Said strength and conditioning coach Chris Carlisle: “I’ve seen players have the bar slip and fall onto their chest, but never in my 25 years of coaching have I heard of someone dropping a bar on their throat. We’re fortunate he was being spotted.”

Johnson, a senior from Dorsey High in Compton, is USC’s second-leading rusher with 157 yards. He leads the team with five touchdowns.

Al Sharpton & LisaRaye a couple?


Yeah you read that right! And trust me…we’re more shocked than you are. has learned that Al Sharpton has been getting it in for the last few months with none other than LisaRaye.

Here’s what we know: A few weeks ago our source (a MAJOR publicist in the industry who shall remain nameless) told us that Al and LisaRaye–both barely divorced–are indeed together now. When we asked the obligatory “WTF?! Why?” The answer is because Lisa knows she’s not getting onto any of these “society and political” events without a man who could bring her along. She’s also starved for attention from the media–surprise surprise–so Al is her “In” into that world. And Al–well he’s just happy to say he can have a chick that looks like LisaRaye on his arm and whose perm looks better than his. The two have been confusingly spotted at a few events together like Michael Jackson’s memorial services…


I didn’t believe it at first, but at the Congressional Black Caucus events this weekend in DC–Mr. Sharpton was indeed coupled up with LisaRaye as he brought her as his date to every event. In the above pic, they were boo’d up at a Gala afterparty at Toscana West. And below, we spotted them at the Gala together with friends. We mean holding hands, boo’d up, everything. Shocker…we know. But you heard here FIRST….

Usher’s Girl Grace FIRED From Def Jam?!

Things just got real with Usher’s budding relationship with Def Jam exec Grace Miguel. Our extremely reliable source who works at Def Jam tells us that L.A. Reid forced Grace to resign last week. And yes, it was mainly-if not all– because of the bad press they’ve been getting after her relationship with Usher was made public. Womp womp.

Oh, but it gets better. Said source confirmed for us that Usher not only cheated on soon to be ex-wife Tameka with Grace, who is 12 years his senior…but Grace was indeed married at the time as well. She filed for divorce conveniently around the same time Usher did. Tameka was also married and “filing for divorce” around the same time she and Usher got together. Now that’s karma for that ass. But for who exactly? It’s actually seeming like Déjà Vu…
