Floyd Mayweather suing ex-girlfriend, claims she stole money

  Floyd Mayweather suing ex-girlfriend, claims she stole money Floyd Mayweather Jr. has been engaged in a legal war with his ex-girlfriend Shantel Jackson for years, and the latest shot is being fired by the undefeated boxer. According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Mayweather has filed a lawsuit against Jackson alleging that the actress stole an undisclosed amount of money from him while the two were dating. Mayweather claims Jackson took cash from around his house without permission and gained access to his credit card accounts to go on shopping sprees. The lawsuit claims Jackson even had the items she bought shipped a secret location so Mayweather would not know about the purchases.

CLEVELAND (AP) — The Cleveland Browns fired top executive Sashi Brown , but are keeping coach Hue Jackson for another season despite a 1-27 record. Haslam also announced Jackson will remain as coach for next season.

Coach Hue Jackson is keeping his — for now. Winless with four weeks left in another dismal season, the Cleveland Browns fired Brown on Thursday, jettisoning their top football executive who was unable to improve the franchise enough to satisfy owners Dee and Jimmy Haslam.

A man tries to mimic a TV stunt -- and sets off a massive fire that damages town

  A man tries to mimic a TV stunt -- and sets off a massive fire that damages town The fire damaged 32 buildings, displaced at least 18 people and forced the city to declare a state of emergency. And it all began, officials say, because a man wanted to imitate a stunt he'd seen on TV. The fire broke out Thursday in a neighborhood in Cohoes, New York. The man was trying to bend metal with fire in a barrel, said Cohoes Fire Department Chief Joseph Fahd. He was trying to create a sword -- something he'd seen done in the TV show, "Forged in Fire." The reality show pits bladesmiths against each other as they compete to recreate historical weapons. But it was very windy that day.

Winless Browns fire top executive Sashi Brown , but coach Hue Jackson will be back in 2018 despite 1-27 record. A person familiar with the decisions says the Cleveland Browns have fired Sashi Brown , the club’s vice president of football operations.

Coach Hue Jackson is keeping his — for now. Winless with four weeks left in another dismal season, the Cleveland Browns fired Brown on Thursday, jettisoning their top football executive who was unable to improve the volatile franchise enough to satisfy owners Dee and Jimmy Haslam.

CLEVELAND (AP) -- One win in two seasons cost Sashi Brown his job with the Browns. Coach Hue Jackson is keeping his -- for now.

Winless with four weeks left in another dismal season, the Cleveland Browns fired Brown on Thursday, jettisoning their top football executive who was unable to improve the franchise enough to satisfy owners Dee and Jimmy Haslam.

Jackson, though, is safe and will return for the 2018 season despite a 1-27 record.

"We have great appreciation and gratitude for Sashi's commitment and leadership to our organization but believe transitioning to someone with strong experience and success in drafting and building consistently winning football teams is critical to the future of the Cleveland Browns," Jimmy Haslam said in a statement. "Today we informed Sashi that we were going in a new direction. The 2018 draft and offseason is pivotal for our franchise, we need to ensure that we maximize our opportunity for success; with our picks, free agency and building our roster.

Winless Browns fire top executive Sashi Brown , but coach Hue Jackson will be back in 2018 despite 1-27 record. A person familiar with the decisions says the Cleveland Browns have fired Sashi Brown , the club’s vice president of football operations.

Brown was named the team's top executive by the Haslams during an overhaul following the 2015 season. His firing is not unexpected since the Browns are 0-12 for the second straight season with Brown in charge. He gutted Cleveland's roster, electing not to re-sign some of the team's own free agents in favor of signing younger players and acquiring future draft picks.

However, the team's decision to pass up on drafting quarterbacks Carson Wentz and Deshaun Watson in the past two drafts may have hastened Brown's demise and Cleveland has shown little sign of improvement since Brown took over. Brown had no experience in evaluating players as he served as the team's general counsel before handling the salary cap and contracts.

ESPN was first to report Brown's dismissal.

Brown and Jackson appeared to be at odds over several roster decisions and Haslam figured his best course of action was to end the relationship rather than attempting to repair it.
