Does this mean Glory Johnson and Brittney Griner can FINALLY move on?

On Thursday, a judge in Arizona denied WNBA star Glory spousal support from her wife of 28 days, Brittney. And it was just earlier this week, a judge shut down Britt's request that the May marriage be annulled due to Glory's alleged cheating with an ex-boyfriend.

Well, you lose some and you win some, right?!

Talk about being shot down!

On Saturday, basketball star Matt Barnes was caught gushing about Rihanna claiming that he and the B*tch Better Have My Money singer were in the "crush" stage of their relationship.

He stated:

"Rihanna is my friend right now, so we'll see where it goes. It just passed the crush stage a little bit."

Which would make sense since as he is still technically married to Gloria Govan.

However, it appears that RiRi is 100% confused by these romantic rumors linking her with the Memphis Grizzlies player.

On Sunday, the starlet took to Instagram to shut down any notion that she and Matt were an item or that they even actually knew each other.

She posted:

The campaign and scholarship — the requirements of which haven't been fully finalized yet — will likely be something like this: for every student in Akron, Ohio to finish LeBron's I Promise campaign in high school (and there are nearly 2,300 of them!), the basketball star will cover their college tuition at UA!

The first eligible group is this year's class, currently in seventh grade, which will graduate high school in 2021 and be sent off en masse to college by King James himself!

LeBron spoke about the scholarships, telling reporters:

After the Aussie nailed her performance, the NBA-er jumped around to Maroon 5's Sugar even though Iggy pointed out his "choreography didn't go according to plan" before calling him a "flip-flopper" in basketball — LOLz!

The couple then got down to business as the Pretty Girl's singer grinded her way through Freak Me by Silk and Swaggy P responded by doing his best rendition of Here I Go Again by Whitesnake — though it looked like he may not have remembered all the words.

Ch-ch-check out the AH-Mazing performances (below) and let us know who you think won the battle!

This situation is all kinds of wrong!

A teenager in Kentucky allegedly had his yearbook photo removed for one reason: he's gay.
