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!

At least we have a name.
Cristina Blesa is the girlfriend of Memphis Gizzlies star, Marc Gasol. There is virtually no information in English on Cristina Blesa online, though we did come across a site in what I think was German which may have had more information on her.
The two have been photographed together at various events; most notably at a Grizzlies charity event. They were also seen taking a vacation in the Mediterranean where they were spotted relaxing on and swimming off a luxury yacht. The same paparazzi that captured them lounging also saw them kayaking in the same area for whatever that's worth.
Like we said, there's not much out there, other than confirmation that Marc Gasol is off the market. It's questionable whether the far more normal looking Gasol brother landed the hotter girl in comparison to Pau's girlfriend Silvia Castro. I suppose two rings will elevate your dating status, right?
