CARDI B had her son back in September, but has yet to reveal his name. Well, she took to Twitter on Sunday and hinted she might reveal it with a FACE TATTOO. She said, quote, “Random but . . . I’m 1% close to tatting my son’s name on my face . . . I really, really wanna do it!” Cardi’s preferred location is on her jaw. But people were quick to call her out on a Tweet from July where she said, quote, “Everyday I’m thankful at the fact that ain’t get this face tatt I wanted when I was 16.” Maybe she’s inspired by OFFSET? Because he has a tattoo on his jawline for their 4-year-old daughter Kulture. Cardi also has yet to add Kulture to her collection of tattoos.
NEVE CAMPBELL’s son Raynor isn’t even four years old, and he already knows he’s adopted. She says it’s better than the strategy of, quote, “keep it from them and throw it at them when they’re 21, so their entire reality falls apart.” “The guidance I had was, even before they could understand the language, to talk about their birth mother, their story, and tell them who they are . . .”Because of that, it’s no surprise for Raynor in any sense whatsoever . . . He was in Cynthia’s tummy, she made him . . . He feels this relationship to her and I think it’s really important, ’cause they’re gonna need that.” Neve had asked the birth mother for photos or a letter to share with Raynor. The woman actually made an album with photos of herself, things about her life, and things she likes so Neve can look through it with him. In addition to Raynor, she and her husband actor JJ Feild also have a 9-year-old son named Caspian.

Only “selected” spectators will be allowed to attend the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The announcement came after Beijing reported its first case of the omicron variant on Saturday. Only residents of China who have the required “COVID-19 countermeasures” will be allowed to attend the Winter Games. They will be required to “strictly comply with COVID-19 prevention and control requirements before, during and after watching the Games.” China already announced that fans from outside the country would not be allowed to attend any events. The Olympics will begin on Feb. 4 and will take place in a “closed loop” to keep athletes, coaches and other essential personnel away from the general public. Athletes will also have to be tested every day and wear masks, in addition to other health and safety measures.
Mike Tyson has denied a report about ongoing negotiations between him and Jake Paul regarding an exhibition fight in Las Vegas. Tyson expressed surprise on social media about the story: “This is news to me. I saw Jake – and he never mentioned it to me.” According to a reporter…Tyson and Paul had brokered a verbal agreement on the general details but that the specifics still need to be hammered out. Tyson addressed a potential encounter with Paul during an appearance on a podcast and said knocking out the YouTuber would be “so f–king easy.” However, he’d feel conflicted because of his families closeness with Paul. Tyson said: ((AUDIO 1)) This would represent a different challenge for Paul, who has yet to cross paths with an opponent who boasts a lengthy boxing resume. Askren and Woodley are experienced MMA fighters, but their boxing inexperience was laid bare in their losses to the 25-year-old. As to what type of fighter Tyson DOES fight….he had this to say…((AUDIO))
A historic robe worn by Muhammad Ali could sell for over $500,000 at auction. The robe was worn by Ali, the greatest boxer in history, ahead of his memorable 1965 win over Sonny Liston. Ali had won his first heavyweight title a year earlier with a win over Liston, but he truly proved his ability in the rematch with a first-round knockout over the former champ. Ali standing over Liston has become one of the most iconic images in sports history. The match was also the first time the boxer fought under the name Muhammad Ali after changing it from Cassius Clay. It makes this robe, featuring the name in red letters over a white background, the first time he publicly displayed his chosen name ahead of a boxing match.
The main draw of the 2022 Australian Open kicked off Monday with players trying to take advantage of a wide-open field. Nine-time men’s singles champion Novak Djokovic will not compete in this year’s event after his Australian visa was canceled over his vaccination status. The women’s draw will be without seven-time champion Serena Williams, who withdrew in December following the advice of her medical team. Some highlights from yesterday include Rafael Nadal, Madison Keys, and Naomi Osaka all getting wins. Coco Gauff was unfortunately upset. The women’s #1 seed Ashleigh Barty was dominate in her win.
Speaking of Djokovic…..already banned from competing at the 2022 Australian Open, Djokovic may wind up being forced out of the French Open as well if he chooses to not vaccinate himself against COVID-19. France passed a law, which parliament approved Sunday, requiring proof of vaccination to enter public spaces, and the country’s health ministry said there will be no exceptions granted. “The rule is simple.” the ministry said. “This will apply to everyone who is a spectator or a professional sportsperson. And this until further notice.”
