It seems now that Gabrielle Union and Dwyane are headed back to Cleveland, Union is deadset on making the most of her time there. So, it only makes sense that these two have partnered up. Now that both “Survivor’s Remorse” and “Being Mary Jane” have ended, it seems like a great time.
According to Variety, LeBron James and Gabrielle Union are partnering to produce a comedy for ABC called “White Dave.” The series is set to follow a Black teenager who has grown up in an all-White suburb. But that changes when his mother remarries. The story is based on the life of David E. Talbert who will write and executive produce the series.
“White Dave” is one of many projects that James is working on. He is also developing a game show for NBC called “The Wall,” a comedy set in a sneaker store with HBO and is also working on a movie about the life of Madam C.J. Walker, starring Octavia Spencer.
Frank Ocean victorious over father in $14.5 million defamation suit
Frank Ocean’s father has lost the defamation suit he filed against his son for calling him a bigot.
In a 2016 Tumblr post, Frank had accused his father, Calvin Cooksey, of calling a transgender waitress “a f****t” when he was a child.
Cooksey sued Ocean claiming the post cost him “future financial opportunities” and more.
A judge heard arguments in L.A. Tuesday and ruled in favor of Frank, saying Cooksey failed to prove his son had defamed him at all. Cooksey was seeking $14.5 million in damages.
Frank’s attorney tells TMZ, “It was a sad case, but we are glad that it ended in Frank’s favor and that it is over.”
