Delonte West says there’s nothing to worry about after a video of him panhandling in the streets went viral last week. He insists he’s doing okay and actively looking for a job. In February, TMZ broke the news that the former NBA guard who has publicly battled mental health and addiction issues was back on the right track.

He was reportedly training to make the Big Three basketball league. But then last week, when a fan saw him panhandling and looking disheveled in the streets of Virginia, it caught many folks off guard. West says he has children and is in between jobs but, as a man, has to do what he has to do for my children.

Nick Cannon’s baby mama, Bre Tiesi jokingly clarified her relationship with the actor as “not a cult.” She was being cagey on The Know For Sure podcast last week when they were interviewing her. She said her needs are met by Canon and they are not practicing polygamy.

And convicted sex offender Bill Cosby, reportedly cheered in glee when he heard he only had to pay one of his alleged victims $500,000 as a part of a civil lawsuit when he was found liable for assaulting the then-16-year-old at the Playboy mansion in 1975. While a Los Angeles County jury delivered the verdict awarding the now-64-year-old Judy Huth this substantial sum, the judgment actually put to bed one of the last remaining legal claims against the embattled standup comic.

Cosby was jailed in 2018 for a separate sexual assault charge that was overturned by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court last year, which is why he is out of jail. At one point, he was accused by approximately 60 women of rape, drug-facilitated sexual assault, sexual battery, child sexual abuse, and sexual misconduct.

Al Roker and Deborah Roberts were full of pride as they celebrated their son Nick’s high school graduation. Nick is a 19-year-old. He’s a special needs student, but he graduated from Aaron School. It’s a private special education school in New York City. Both the Today weatherman and the ABC News senior correspondent paid tribute to this milestone achievement on Instagram.
