Athletes have birthday weekends, not birthdays, and LeSean McCoy is keeping that trend alive. After buying himself a Rolls-Royce, last night he celebrated his birthday, or the Royce, or just his general greatness, at Vision Bar with special guest Nelly. Tonight, a white party on the Battleship New Jersey, and that’ll be after a celebrity basketball game at Neumann College (has a less cool sentence ever been written?) that advertises attendance by DeSean Jaccson, Michael Vick, Victor Cruz, Dion Waiters, Bobby Valentino, Bernard Hopkins and Allen Iverson.* Me thinks that getting even 40% of those people out to Neumann College on a summer Saturday has about as much of a chance of happening as DeSean displaying a modicum of humility.
McCoy’s multiple celebrations supposedly benefit ALS through his Shades of Greatness Foundation, which, at least in 2012, donated $71k to families in need in Harrisburg. That’s in stark contrast to Jaccpot’s charity, which, according to its most recently available tax filing, has never made any charitable contribution but spent $27k advertising and promoting events that only raised $16k.
There are more pictures of McCoy’s party with Nelly. Where dey at? Where dey at? They’re after the jump.
Silver had argued that the gun in the photo was a prop and that Mill’s cellphone did work, at times.
Mill, who received glowing praise from his etiquette teacher, Gail Madison, during court hearings last September and this February, meekly asked [Judge] Brinkley not to send him to jail because he had to earn money to provide for his son and other family members. She suggested that the judge instead suspend his ability to travel out of town – which Brinkley did for a month in 2012 as punishment for probation violations.
Going to jail, the rapper said, “will damage everything I got going on in my life, everything I’ve worked for in the last six years.”
But Assistant District Attorney Noel Ann DeSantis – whom Mill called a “racist” on Twitter – said jail is where he belongs. She asked the judge to impose his original five-to-10-year sentence.
“I think the judge made clear in her analysis that she gave the defendant every opportunity to do well and the defendant continued to thumb his nose at this court,” DeSantis told reporters. “He did not really take seriously that his probation was a gift and was really for him to be able to have his career.”
Brinkley told Mill she believed he had the talent to be as successful as rap star Jay Z, but lamented he had let down her and his fans.
Let’s pump those breaks, Brinkster.
