Good ol' Fire Croutch performed during the halftime show of the 2006 Brut Sun Bowl at Sun Bowl Stadium in El Paso, Texas on December 29, 2006.
Michael Jordan and his wife, Juanita, divorced Friday after 17 years of marriage. "Michael and Juanita Jordan mutually and amicably decided to end their 17 year marriage," the couple said in a statement issued through their lawyers. "A judgment for dissolution of their marriage was entered today. There will be no further statements."
Michael Jordan's lawyer, Frederick J. Sperling, declined comment.
But in court documents filed Friday with the Lake County Circuit Court, the couple said "irreconcilable differences have caused an irretrievable breakdown of the marriage." The couple said attempts to reconcile their marriage had failed and future ones "would be impractical and not in the best interests of the family."
Juanita Jordan previously filed for divorce in January 2002, but withdrew her petition a month later when the couple announced they were attempting a reconciliation.
The couple met at a Chicago restaurant during his second season with the Bulls and were married Sept. 2, 1989, in Las Vegas. They have three children: Jeffrey, 18, Marcus, 16, and Jasmine, 14.
Michael Jordan, 43, lives in Chicago; Juanita Jordan, 47, lives in Highland Park, Ill.
The Jordans, who have lived separately since February, will share custody of their children, according to court documents. (source)

Singer James Brown, the self-proclaimed "Godfather of Soul," who billed himself as the hardest working man in show business, died on Monday at age 73, his manager said.
Brown died at 1:45 a.m. (0645 GMT) at Emory Crawford Long Hospital in Atlanta after being admitted there on Saturday for treatment of severe pneumonia, his manager, Frank Copsidas, said. Charles Bobbit, Brown's longtime friend and personal manager, was at his side, he said.
The singer, also known as "Mr. Dynamite," is credited with bringing the word "funk" into mainstream musical vernacular and influencing a new generation of black music. (continue)

R&B artists have a fondness for wearing fur but rapper and sometime designer P. Diddy is under fire for allegedly misleading style setters into thinking a jacket from his winter collection is animal friendly, when in fact it isn't.
The item in question, being sold at Macys, is advertised as having an "imitation rabbit fur collar" and is "nylon/faux fur/goose down".
The reality, apparently, is that the coat is made out of genuine fur.
The Humane Society Of The United States (HSUS) purchased the item believing it to follow their ethics regarding animals as fashion, only to find that the fur in question once belonged to a raccoon.
The society is now doing DNA testing on the fur to establish whether it is from a raccoon dog, a Chinese breed to dog whose coat resembles that of a raccoon.
If it is made certain that the design does involve an animal, Macys has agreed to take the offending item off its shelves. (source)
