The calendar may have turned to a long holiday weekend, but the drama continues.

The flying tomato is about to get squashed…
However, that may be over now because his own drummer is currently suing him for sexual harassment!
Lena Zawaideh formed the band Bad Things with Shaun back in 2008, but has now filed a lawsuit against the two-time Olympic gold medalist for $42,000 in back payments.
However, the real uphill legal battle for Shaun is that she's also suing for punitive damages for "inappropriate and sexually harassing and suggestive comments" both in-person and over text!
Apparently, Shaun has a history of using his fame to steamroll his band mates — he even forced them to "tour" with him when he was training for the 2014 Olympics to suit his own travel needs — and altogether stopped paying Lena her $3,750 per month stipend once he felt she reached her worth!
Ugh! If these accusations are true, that's a half-pipe too far for us!

Monday night's episode of The Voice was a night of debuts!
The song isn't an original as Smith sang One Republic's I Lived, however, the season nine winner did rock the hell out of it!
We guess it really pays to win a singing show on the network that airs the Olympic games! LOLz!
Ch-ch-check out Jordan's INCREDIBLE performance of I Lived (below) and let us know what you're looking forward to the most in the games this summer!
HOLD THE PHONES!
According to a source, the Olympian will be posing in "nothing but an American flag and her Olympic medal." Oh snap!
Apparently, this cover shoot is meant to honor the 40th anniversary of Miz Jenner's decathlon world record at the 1976 Olympic Summer Games in Montreal. Wow!
Not to mention, this photo shoot will be the first time Caitlyn poses with her medal since transitioning. The more you know!
The source added:
Well after getting his mind right, the gold medal athlete decided to turn things around and announce that he would be coming out of retirement and competing in the 2016 Olympics in Rio this year!
Of course, many fans are still curious about Phelps' troubles, so the studly swimmer sat down with Matt Lauer on TODAY to get completely candid about his problems.
Not only did the Olympian admit he was in a "downward spiral" but he went on to dish there was even a point when he "didn't want to see another day." Thankfully, the aquatic athlete now has a new outlook on life and is looking forward to retiring the way he wants to retire!
Ch-ch-check out Michael's interview with Matt (below) and let us know your thoughts on the athlete's return to glory!
When it comes to fighting for equal pay, the U.S. women's soccer team isn't playing around!
On behalf of the entire women's team, co-captain Becky Sauerbrunn, Hope Solo, Alex Morgan, Carli Lloyd, and Megan Rapinoe filed paperwork in hopes of achieving wage equality.
And it looks like the athletes are sticking to their guns. If nothing changes in the federation, the team might use their most powerful bargaining tool in protest of wage discrimination — and not show up to August's Olympics!
In an interview with ESPNW, Sauerbrunn revealed a boycott would "still be on the table" if no progress was made by July, explaining:
The U.S. National Women's Team may have won the World Cup, but now they have their sights set on an even bigger goal — pay equality!
Five athletes from the Women's World Cup championship team have filed a federal labor complaint against U.S. Soccer on behalf of the entire Women's National Team.
According to reports, Hope Solo, Alex Morgan, Carli Lloyd, Becky Sauerbrunn, and Megan Rapinoe filed paperwork claiming that they are paid less than half as much as the men's team players — yet generate TENS OF MILLIONS more in revenue!
The team's attorney Jeffrey Kessler said that the women of U.S. Soccer earn
