Apparently, a LOT has happened since this picture was taken in 2012!

*Wow, LeBron James and David Beckham BFF’s. Who knew?

But they are, and James’ growing interest in soccer is one of the reasons why.

As previously reported, the Miami Heat star and four-time NBA MVP’s interest in soccer has grown considerably in recent years. He even signed with Fenway Sports Management and made the acquisition of a small piece of Liverpool FC, one of the world’s most famous soccer teams, a part of that deal.

Who says there can’t be double-dippin’ in sports…They lied!

Now LeBron has his eye on possibly bringing an MLS team to Miami. He and his BFF (Beckham) are in preliminary talks now.

The AP first reported last month that Beckham decided to start an MLS expansion team in Miami. Several matters, however, must be taken care of first, including getting league approval. Beckham scouted some Miami locations last week.

ashanti*And now in Ashanti news (imagine radio announcer voice here)…

The singer has tweeted that though she is suffering from bronchitis at the moment, that has not put a damper on the pending release of a Christmas record.

Her tweet says, “Still grinding…finishing up Tweeks on the Xmas EP…still got bronchitis.” The music will likely coincide with the release of her new Lifetime holiday film, “Christmas in the City,” which premiers December 7 at 8pm.
