Today's Blind Item!

"Which superstar athlete is several months behind on the mortgage payments on his house? It isn't because he isn't making money or because he is forgetful. It's because he is scared. Every penny he scores right now is going toward paying off some outrageous gambling debts he racked up over the past couple of years. It seems that the consequence of someone hurting him or his family is more pressing than the thought of losing his house." [BlindGossip]

Oh dear. PLEASE don't let this be my sweet Charles Barkley. The sad fact is, though, that he's had gambling issues in the past. Sigh.

Wow...can you imagine the kind of $$$ MJ would have to be crapping away if it IS him? He's LOADED. All that Nike, Gatorade, etc. money...

Sir Charles had a big problem with a casino earlier this year and doesn't make the money MJ has. I have a bad feeling it's Charles. :(
