Rick Ross just learned a hard lesson about rape and money … you embrace one, you lose the other … because he was just DUMPED by Reebok.

As TMZ previously reported … Ross has taken a ton of heat for his song, U.O.E.N.O … in which he happily sings, “Put Molly [Ecstasy] all in the champagne.  She ain’t even know it.  I took her home and I enjoy that.  She ain’t even know it.”  Translation — date rape.

Reebok tells TMZ … “Reebok holds our partners to a high standard, and we expect them to live up to the values of our brand.  Unfortunately, Rick Ross has failed to do so.”

Reebok goes on:  “While we do not believe that Rick Ross condones sexual assault, we are very disappointed he has yet to display an understanding of the seriousness of this issue or an appropriate level of remorse.”

(Sports) Gilbert Arenas: Deal To Play In China ‘Falling Apart’ —Guess Why?!?!

Last week it was reported that Gilbert Arenas was close to signing a contract to play basketball in China.  Apparently, that deal isn’t so close and it may be falling apart.

According to a report from Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, the deal appears to be “falling apart.”

Arenas and Guangdong reached a verbal agreement, but have now hit an impasse over completing a signed contract. The snags may ultimately keep Arenas from joining Guangdong for the upcoming CBA season, sources said.

Guangdong and Arenas have had disagreements over a payment schedule, and the organization has started to have increasing questions over Arenas’ fitness to make an impact in the league.

 

Damn, questions over his fitness?  smh.
