Chandler Jones, Arthur Jones and Jon Jones' parents Arthur and Camille Jones are dealing with the drama that goes along with having all three sons be successful professional athletes. Man, I already was surprised by the McCourty twins both becoming NFL professionals, but now we're actually talking about three brothers becoming pros. Chandler, who plays for the Patriots, and Jon, who is a professional UFC fighter, have another brother named Arthur Jones who is a defensive end for the Colts (you know, that team the Patriots hammered into the ground in the AFC Championship game this year). So let's talk about the problem that popped up recently between Jon and his parents.
Basically, Jon Jones tested positive for cocaine and was made to go into rehab by the UFC and fined 25 grand, but then his mom Camille Jones said that he left rehab after only one day. This is where the controversy, if you want to call it that, started. The UFC President Dana White said that was "not necessarily the case," and then he threw out some vague wording about how "the truth will come out." I don't really know what he was saying, but when Jon Jones was interviewed, he denied that he'd left rehab in one day. So now I'm wondering if there's tension between Jon and his mom Camille, and I think there's probably not. I'm sure they're just concerned that he's a addicted to coke or something.
As for Chandler Jones, Jon was concerned that he might have disappointed him and Arthur. One of Jon's brothers apparently told him "they see it a lot in the NFL. It is not as public." I'm not sure what he was referring to, but I think he just meant the use of cocaine as a party drug. Dana White said it was not an option to pull Jon Jones from any fights because he'd get sued and lose.
Dana White's wife Anne White has been married to Dana since 1996, and she's very happy he moved out of South Boston. Having formerly been a boxing trainer in Southie, Dana was bullied by the Irish mob there and told that he owed them a few thousand dollars. He knew he wouldn't pay them, so he packed his bags and moved to Las Vegas. That's where his life turned into a surreal dream of celebrity, marriage, money, and mixed martial arts.
Anne White herself definitely stays out of the spotlight, otherwise she'd be in so many party shots with her husband. Dana's wife Anne spends much of her time with friends and tending to their two sons and daughter. Dana's mother actually wrote a book about Dana which characterized him as a greedy and corrupted person who had been changed rapidly by the huge inflow of money that he ran into. Similar claims have been made about him by the likes of Ken Shamrock, who has called him the "bald devil."
Whatever the case is, Dana White and his wife Anne White are now swimming in cash. There was a minor beef coming from the mouth of Dana (but also Anne by association) between them and Justin Timberlake. It happened when Dana and Anne were backstage at the MTV Music Awards hanging out with some music and movie stars, and Dana's kids wanted to say hello to Justin Timberlake, and Dana claims Timberlake was acting like "such a complete jackoff." He also said he "couldn't have been a bigger dick." Man, This guy Dana White has got to be pretty powerful to be able to just call somebody like Timberlake out, though I think when someone is a jerk to your kids, you'd call them out no matter who they are. Of course, we have no idea if Timberlake was a jerk to Dana White and his wife Anne's kids-- as Justin never told his side of the story.
Has coming home early to surprise a girlfriend or wife ever worked out well? When it happened for War Machine's girlfriend Christy Mack, it turned out to be a life changing event.
According to multiple reports, MMA fighter War Machine cant home early Friday to surprise his porn star girlfriend Christy Mack. Following his surprise return home, Mack was beaten so severely that she was admitted to and remains in a local Las Vegas hospital. While exact details, and parties involved are unknown, War Machine is currently wanted by Las Vegas PD for engaging in a three person altercation, but his whereabouts are unknown.
War Machine broke his silence by hitting Twitter Saturday night:
@ChristyMack I love you and hope you're okay. I came him(sp) early to surprise you and help you set up for your convention. I can't believe what I found and can't believe what happened.
All I wanted was to surprise you and help and do something nice...now this.
I'm so heart broken...in all ways. I will always love you.
To be clear, War Machine has not been charged, and full details are not currently available. The above tweets have since been deleted, and were the first since Friday morning when saying "I can't believe this, I must be cursed," (whether in regards to the incident or not is unclear).
TMZ has reported that Mack was beaten so severely that her ability to speak is impaired, and that she is in "very bad shape." War Machine was released from the Bellator roster Friday evening, with a statement as follows:
Bellator President Scott Coker tells TMZ Sports ... "We have a zero tolerance policy here at Bellator when it relates to any form of domestic violence, and after learning of this latest incident involving (Jon Koppenhaver) War Machine, Bellator is releasing him from his promotional contract with the organization.
We're not trying to make light of the situation, but as we've seen time and time again, MMA Fighters and Porn Stars are nothing if not the picture of mental health and stability. This couple fully embodies that spirit by getting massive tattoos of one another within two weeks of first dating.
