Entertainment News

Game of Thrones leaks continue during the final season, with the HBO hit series having season 8, episode 4 leaking online hours before it was scheduled to air. The good news, however, is that the full episode did not surface. Instead, it was simply a 30-second clip, according to Deadline.com.

Los Angeles Lakers star Lonzo Ball parted ways with longtime family friend and business partner Alan Foster after it was determined that Foster was using access to Lonzo’s finances for his own personal gain. Lonzo parted ways with the Big Baller Brand co-founder, who was a close friend of his father. As it turned out, Foster has a criminal past and Ball suspects the family confidant of using Ball’s money to enrich himself. Foster had access to Ball’s finances and was unable to account for $1.5 million in missing funds.
