Arizona Cardinals’ Jeff Gladney Dead at 25
Arizona Cardinals cornerback Jeff Gladney has died at the age of 25. In a statement, his team called his passing a “tremendous loss.”
The sports world is in mourning.
Arizona Cardinals cornerback Jeff Gladney has died at the age of 25, the football team shared in a statement on May 30. “We are devastate to learn of Jeff Gladney’s passing,” they said. “Our hearts go out to his family, friends and all who are mourning this tremendous loss.”
The NFL also confirmed Gladney’s death, writing on Twitter that the organization “mourns the tragic loss” and “extend our deepest condolences to his family and loved ones.”
The statements did not share how Gladney died, though his agent Brian Overstreet told ESPN that the athlete was killed in a car accident on May 30.
Gladney’s passing comes two months after he had signed with the Cardinals. The football star previously played for the Minnesota Vikings, but was released from the team in August after he was indicted on an assault charge stemming from an alleged domestic violence incident in April 2021.
He was found not guilty by a jury in March, per the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
Gladney was initially drafted by the Vikings as a first-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. Prior to his NFL career, he played for Texas Christian University as a student athlete.
In the wake of his passing, the Vikings said in a statement, “We are saddened by the tragic death of former Viking Jeff Gladney. Our hearts go out to his family and friends, as well as the Arizona Cardinals organization and Jeff’s current and former teammates and coaches who are mourning his life lost much too soon.”
Gladney’s Cardinals teammate, J.J. Watt, mourned the loss on social media. “Just tragic,” he tweeted. “Rest In Peace Jeff.”
Meanwhile, Gladney’s former TCU teammate Jalen Reagor, who now plays for the Philadelphia Eagles, wrote on Twitter, “Lost my Brother, my best friend, my right hand man… ain’t too much more I can take man damn! R.I.P Jeff Gladney, brother watch over me please.”
Pregnant Sharna Burgess Responds to “Insane” Claims That She’s Living Apart From Brian Austin Green
Sharna Burgess set the record straight about her living situation with boyfriend Brian Austin Green after fans questioned why she was buying a new house. Read on for her response.
These rumors aren’t jiving with Sharna Burgess.
The Dancing With the Stars pro, who is expecting a baby boy with boyfriend Brian Austin Green, cleared the air about her relationship with the Beverly Hills, 90210 alum after revealing that she’s on the market for a new home. In a video posted to her Instagram Stories on May 29, Sharna said many fans have been “wildly asking me why Brian and I aren’t living together” amid her house-hunting journey.
“So insane,” she said of the claims. “I sold my house because I made amazing money on it because the market is so incredible. And I’m buying a house because my mom is moving over here and I’m buying somewhere for her to live.”
Sharing that the actor has also been accompanying her to look at properties, the 36-year-old ballroom dancer added, “First of all, is it not obvious that Brian and I live together? And what is so scary about buying a house that you don’t live in? I don’t get it.”
Sharna and Brian, 48, first sparked dating rumors in December 2020, when they were photographed kissing during a Hawaiian getaway. A month later, Brian confirmed their romance, calling Sharna “super sweet and caring, passionate, fun to be around.”
The pair announced Sharna’s pregnancy in February, posing in maternity photos on a beach in Hawaii. Sharna later revealed the sex of their baby on the way with a snapshot of her budding bump, writing on Instagram, “And suddenly my world would never be the same. Forever greater, forever expanded and deeper. Forever abundant and unconditional. Baby Boy July 4th (ish) 2022.”
This will be Sharna’s first child, while Brian shares kids Noah, 9, Bodhi, 8, and Journey, 5, with Megan Fox and 20-year-old son Kassius with Vanessa Marcil.
Amid the pregnancy, Brian has been recovering from ulcerative colitis—a chronic inflammatory bowel disease that creates inflammation and ulcers in the inner lining of the large intestine—and leaning on Sharna for support. In an interview with Good Morning America earlier this month, the couple shared that Brian lost about 20 pounds in the ordeal, which at one point had left him bedridden.
“I am super thankful to have someone like her in my life,” he said of Sharna. “But I’m back now I’m feeling good. It was a terrible experience I’m glad it’s over.”
Margaret Qualley and Jack Antonoff Are Engaged After Nearly a Year Together
Almost a year since first sparking romance rumors together, a source confirms to E! News that Margaret Qualley and Jack Antonoff are engaged.
Wedding bells are in the future for Margaret Qualley and Jack Antonoff.
The Maid star and the Bleachers musician are engaged, a source confirms to E! News. The engagement news comes days after Margaret, 27, was spotted wearing a diamond sparkler on her wedding ring finger while promoting her new movie, Stars At Noon, at the Cannes Film Festival in France.
On May 25, Margaret joined co-star Joe Alwyn at the premiere of their film in a black Chanel gown. While posing for photos on the red carpet, she kept her left hand tucked within the ruffles of her dress, though onlookers caught a brief glimpse of the ring as Margaret made her way inside the Palais des Festivals convention center.
A day later, the actress—who is the daughter of Andie MacDowell and Paul Qualley—had on the same ring during a panel discussion for the romantic thriller, which tied with Close for the Grand Prix prize at the festival. For the occasion, Margaret was once again clad head-to-toe in black, sporting silver earrings and a delicate belt that matched the bauble on her left hand.
Margaret and Jack, 38, first sparked romance rumors in August 2021, when they were seen kissing while grabbing ice cream in New York City. The two went public with their romance this March, attending their first public event as a couple at the 2022 Critics’ Choice Awards.
She later shared photos from the outing on Instagram, writing in the caption alongside red heart emoji, “Date night.”
The duo then stepped out at the AFI Awards luncheon in Los Angeles a few days later.
In the following month, Margaret was by Jack’s side at the 2022 Grammy Awards, where he was recognized as non-classical producer of the year for his work on Taylor Swift’s “Gold Rush,” Lorde’s Solar Power, Lana Del Rey’s Chemtrails Over the Country Club, St. Vincent’s Daddy’s Home and Clairo’s Sling, as well as his own band’s third studio album Take the Sadness Out of Saturday Night.
