Sh*t just hit the fan!

Earlier this week, Ryan Lochte claimed that he and three of his teammates — Gunnar Bentz, Jack Conger, and Jimmy Feigen — were robbed at gunpoint by thieves pretending to be cops.

However, the Brazilian government totally called BS, and wanted to question the athlete about his claims.

While Lochte and Feigen returned to the US before they can be interrogated, Conger (pictured left) and Bentz (right) weren't so lucky.

On Wednesday, the Team USA swimmers were yanked off a flight as they tried to leave the country.

As of now, the United States Olympic Committee is still trying to figure out why the two athletes were detained.

As we reported, there is a theory that Ryan lied about the mugging so he could get out of an argument with girlfriend Kayla Rae Reid!

Forget about swimming! The real drama is happening OUTSIDE of the pool!

U.S. Women's Soccer Team May Boycott The Summer Olympics If No 'Real Progress Has Been Made' In Gender Pay Equality!

When it comes to fighting for equal pay, the U.S. women's soccer team isn't playing around!

Last month, five players from the Women's National Team filed a wage-discrimination complaint against U.S. Soccer because they are paid less than half as much as players on the men's team!

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:

Mark Wahlberg & The Rock Are Being Sued For Stealing The Idea Of Ballers!

Will the creator of Ballers please stand up?!

Recently, Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, and HBO are being sued for allegedly stealing the idea of the cable series!

Related: Mark Wahlberg & His Wife Pucker Up!

According to legal docs, writers Everette Silas and Sherri Littleton claim they had the idea for the sports comedy way back in 2007.

The two say they were about to cut a deal with Wahlberg, Johnson, and their manager in 2009 until they asked for "Created By" credits.

Silas and Littleton believe there are way too many similarities between the two projects. Both are about the lives of football players on and off the field, both are set in Miami, and both center around African American athletes.

Furthermore, they claim the title Ballers was taken from one of their episode titles.

The plaintiffs are seeking unspecified damages.

According to a rep from HBO:

"We are confident the case has no merit."

The show has been renewed for a second season.

Diddy's Son Allegedly Humiliated By UCLA Coach For Sitting Courtside At NBA All-Star Game

Filed under: Icky Icky PooDiddyBen StillerBasketballViolenceNBA

no title

As we reported on Monday, Diddy allegedly got into a physical altercation with UCLA coach Sal Alosi and was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon, one count of making terrorist threats, and one count of battery.

According to sources, the impetus for this fight is all due to how the strength and conditioning trainer was treating the rapper's son, Justin Combs.

[ Related: Diddy's Son Thanks His Dad For Sticking Up For Him! ]

Insiders say the Division 1 instructor has been humiliating the mogul's child for three years resulting in psychological damage.

A notable incident occurred on February 15, 2105, when the performer and his son sat courtside at the NBA All-Star game, in which the defensive back had to miss training to attend.

Alosi allegedly saw the (above) photo of Combs and humiliated him by putting the picture in the locker room.

He furthered taunted him by telling the other athletes something to the effect of:

"While you guys are training, this guy is sitting courtside with his dad."

In their tumultuous three years, the coach also made jabs about Justin's wealth and connections, and believes he is only playing for the Bruins due to nepotism.

Alosi has yet to respond to these allegations.
