BEN ZOBRIST ACCUSES PASTOR OF AFFAIR WITH HIS WIFE
Ex-MLB star Ben Zobrist is taking a swing at his pastor Byron Yawn. The two-time World Series champion has filed a lawsuit in Nashville, Tennessee accusing Yawn of having an affair with his wife of 15 years Julianna Zobrist.
Byron was the couple’s trusted “spiritual mentor” during their pre-marital counseling in 2005, and marriage counseling in 2013. Yawn started speaking to Julianna “daily” in 2018, and by 2019 they allegedly started meeting for sex and continued until 2020.
Zobrist is seeking a total of $6-million in compensatory and punitive damages, claiming Yawn “exploited” the counseling he was providing the couple to continue an affair with Julianna – for example, by encouraging Zobrist to “give his wife some space.” Plus, Yawn was acting as Executive Director of Zobrist’s Patriot Forward Charity organization, which Zobrist claims Yawn also used as an “excuse” to meet with Julianna.

COURT DOCS SHOW BRITNEY SPEARS HAS BEEN FIGHTING FOR YEARS TO END CONSERVATORSHIP
Britney Spears is scheduled to speak at her conservatorship hearing later today, and a new report reveals just how much she's hated being under her father Jamie's control.
A report in the "The New York Times" reveals that previously sealed documents in Brit's conservator case show that Brit has wanted the conservatorship to end for a very long time. According to an investigator in 2016 Brit said she “sick of being taken advantage of” and felt she was “the one working and earning her money but everyone around her is on her payroll.”
Brit told the court her dad Jamie was "obsessed" with controling her and she wanted him out. The investigator reported, "She articulated she feels the conservatorship has become an oppressive and controlling tool against her."
