Dani Mathers is bringing in the big guns.

As we're sure you've heard, the Playboy Playmate posted a photo of a naked woman in a LA Fitness locker room to Snapchat with a mean spirited caption making fun of the woman's body, and now the LAPD is launching a criminal investigation for the "illegal distribution" of the photo!

TMZ reports the 29-year-old has hired Tom Mesereau to represent her — the same celebrity lawyer who is responsible for not only the acquittal of Michael Jackson and the murder acquittal of Robert Blake.

NBA Pulls All-Star Game From North Carolina Over Anti-LGBT Legislation!

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayZportzLegal MattersPolitikBasketballNBAViral: NewsTransgenderLGBT

Way to go, NBA!

The NBA has had enough of North Carolina's anti-LGBT bullsh*t!

On Thursday, the Association announced that it will NOT be hosting the 2017 All-Star Game at Charlotte's Time Warner Cable Arena because of the state's controversial bathroom bill.

This comes less than a week after NC's lawmakers had a chance to change up HB2 — which notably forces transgender individuals to use the bathrooms associated with their biological sex, rather than the gender with which they identify — but instead left the law intact.

And now, Commissioner Adam Silver has had enough.

In a new statement, the NBA explained that they can't wait any longer for the awful legislation to change, saying:

"The NBA has decided to relocate the 2017 All-Star Game from Charlotte with the hope of rescheduling for 2019. Since March, when North Carolina enacted HB2 and the issue of legal protections for the LGBT community in Charlotte became prominent, the NBA and the Charlotte Hornets have been working diligently to foster constructive dialogue and try to effect positive change. We have been guided in these discussions by the long-standing core values of our league. These include not only diversity, inclusion, fairness and respect for others but also the willingness to listen and consider opposing points of view."

The basketball league also explained that the discriminatory bill does not uphold the NBA's values:

Justin Bieber

There's no doubt Justin Bieber loves to show off hanging out with exotic animals on Instagram — a hobby that has landed him in some pretty hot water!

You may recall back in April when the singer posed alongside a chained Bengal tiger at his father's engagement party (above), and then again in a picture posted a month later with a lion cub — and these are just two of the times in Toronto alone.

Well turns out the 22-year-old received a formal complaint from Toronto Animal Services back at the beginning of June stating that both of these instances violated a municipal code that bans the "keeping" of wild animals such as lions, tigers, and bears cougars in the city.
