CAROLINA PANTHERS OWNER PUTTING TEAM UP FOR SALE … Amid NFL Investigation

TMZ reports: Carolina Panthers owner Jerry Richardson says he’s putting the team up for sale at the end of the season … the same day the NFL said it’s investigating him.

1215-jerry-richardson-getty-3.jpgRichardson released a statement Sunday saying he was planning to sell the Panthers franchise to new ownership, but wouldn’t start the process ’til the very last game.

The Panthers launched an investigation into their owner this week for alleged misconduct in the workplace, including reported cash settlements for at least 4 employees.

According to Sports Illustrated, the misconduct centered around alleged sexual harassment and the use of a racial slur. The NFL also announced Sunday that it was taking over the Panthers’ original probe … which appears to have forced Richardson’s hand.

Gotta say … this reminds us a lot of when TMZ Sports revealed racist comments made by former Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling … who sold the team after news of his scandal broke.

As for Richardson, he and some investors paid the NFL a reported $206 million in 1993 to create the Panthers as an expansion team. It’s probably worth a lot more than that now.

 

We gotta text the homie Cam Newton and get the scoop!..He’ll let us know the real.

His wife Donna Guillaume told CNN he had battled prostate cancer in recent years.

“He kinda went the way everyone wishes they could, surrounded by love and in his sleep,” Guillaume said.
She added that her husband really loved making music, entertaining and making people laugh. He treasured his role as Rafiki in Disney’s 1994 animated film “The Lion King,” she said.
Guillaume starred as the level-headed butler Benson DuBois on the sitcom “Benson” from 1979 – 1986. He won the Emmy for outstanding lead actor in a comedy for his performance in the role in 1985. Dozens of TV roles followed, including turns on “A Different World” and “Sports Night.”
Guillaume is survived by four children, all of whom had spent time visiting with their father in his final weeks, Donna Guillaume said.
“He was a good father and a good husband. He was a great, great person,” she said.
RIP to TV legend who opened the door for so many actors of color!

O.J. Simpson released from Nevada prison after nine years for robbery

Daily News- O.J. Simpson is out of prison — and an attorney for the family of Ronald Goldman is now looking to collect.

California lawyer David Cook told CNN that he’s ready to resume the Goldmans’ efforts to collect their cut of a wrongful death civil judgment against Simpson now worth just under $70 million.

“The good news for me is he’s getting out. The bad news for him is I’m in good health. I’m good to go,” Cook said.

He added he was ready for “round two” with Simpson, 70, following the fallen NFL great’s release from Lovelock Correctional Center in Nevada around midnight local time.

Lovelock staff told Simpson the same thing they say during every farewell to a prisoner, “Don’t come back.”

“I don’t intend to,” he replied, according to DOC spokeswoman Brooke Keast.

Simpson was acquitted in 1995 of murder charges in the slayings of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Goldman, who was her friend.

He was found civilly liable for the slayings in 1997 and ordered to pay the victims’ families $33.5 million — a sum that has more than doubled with interest.

Simpson served nine years behind bars — most of them at Lovelock in the northern Nevada — after robbing two memorabilia dealers at a Las Vegas casino hotel in 2007.

The disgraced running back signed his release papers and walked out to a waiting driver in a dark parking lot of the facility still wearing standard prison garb: blue jeans, a denim jacket and white tennis shoes.

Keast is heard saying, “Here you go, come out,” to Simpson in a brief clip on the Department of Correction’s Facebook page.

You got the juice now OJ!.Keep your butt out of trouble!
