Tony Allen's wife Desiree Allen had to be happy after his $20 million contract got inked back in 2013. Having been ranked one of the best perimeter defenders for years and being selected to the All-Defensive team (in my mind a serious achievement) made him worthy of the deal. So now Miss Desiree is living it up in Memphis after tying the knot with Tony in June of 2013.

I've seen a video of Tony Allen's wife Desiree Allen dancing with him at their wedding, and she was doing the Spanish-style shoulder shake move. Well, that's not the technical dancing term for it, but it reminded me of the tango. In short, the couple was having a good old time and enjoying their wedding. His little boy recently appeared on some Twitter videos, and Desiree always looks very happy with him. She appears to have a cool braided hairstyle in one photo where she's playing with their son. So starting a family with Desiree and settling down in Memphis with a big contract appears to really be working out.

Tony Allen's wife Desiree Allen must get a kick out of all the videos Tony's been posting of him and his son. I'm not sure exactly when Desiree had the baby, but you can tell Tony is enjoying being a Dad now. The couple have also taken part in the FIT Valentine's Mother's Day Out last February. FIT is Families In Transition and is a program designed to combat domestic violence. The NFL might want to start a program like that. Anyway, they had the program at the Westin Hotel in downtown Memphis, and everybody that took part were greeted by Tony and Desiree. Desiree even said a few words about being indirectly affected by domestic violence, and Tony hung out with the kids there. Always nice to see couples helping the community.

James Johnson's wife Callie Johnson was allegedly hit during a domestic dispute Saturday morning, which ultimately led to the Grizzlies forward arrest and charges filed.

The two began arguing after leaving Beale Street in Memphis around 2am. Johnson was arrested and booked into County Jail shortly after 4:00am Saturday morning, and charged with domestic assault after allegedly hitting and choking his wife. Johnson initially left after the argument, but returned home to find police interviewing his wife. Callie told police that both had been drinking, and in a police affidavit, accused Johnson of punching a hole in a bathroom door, where she was hiding.

James and Callie Johnson were married in July, 2012 and have one daughter together. If these accusations turn out to be true, it's another in a long line of domestic assaults throughout professional sports. It's a sad and alarming trend that shows no signs of slowing down.

The Grizzlies only official statement thus far was to say they were gathering information and had no further statements. Johnson was in court Monday where he pled not guilty.

In this day and age of information access and immediate news, no matter the sourcing or lack thereof, we see plenty of rumors about professional athletes (and holy hell, if we weren't terrified of the lawsuits, we would LOVE to let you guys read our inbox after last week's story about Aaron Hernandez). Sometimes the story are insane and unbelievable. And then there are rumors and stories that, albeit unsubstantiated, we look at, and think, "yeah,... that sounds about right."

A perfect example of that involves personal favorite Z-Bo and Zach Randolph's girlfriend Faune. Zach Randolph has been dating Faune for years and reports are indicating that Faune Drake is expecting a child in the coming months (this will be Zach's third child having previously fathered children MacKenley and MaZiya). Here's where things get interesting. According to rumors as seen on TerezOwens.com and MediaTakeOut.com, Zach may also be expecting a fourth child. No Faune isn't carrying twins, the rumor indicates that Zach Randolph's girlfriend #2 named Unique (or mistress, or sidepiece - it's not entirely clear) is expecting Zach's child as well. Both sides indicate that Unique is currently rocking a diamond and freely letting people know that she's carrying Z-Bo's baby and the two will be married soon.

The truth is not entirely clear, and we're certainly not holding our breath for Randolph's representation to press release a congratulatory memo on the birth of Zach's third and fourth child - but it's a published rumor gaining steam. We'll see if there's anything more made of it in the weeks and months to come, but for now, Congratulations, Zach!
