Britney Spears Fell for David with Golf

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Dating,

Britney Spears and David LucadoBritney Spears fell for her new boyfriend when he taught her how to play golf.

The "Piece of Me" hitmaker - who split from her fiance Jason Trawick in January - is currently dating David "Lucky" Lucado after being set up by her father Jamie Spears and the pair instantly clicked as he gave her a personal lesson in the putting sport.

"They first met when Lucky gave her a golf lesson. They totally hit it off which I'm not surprised by, everyone loves him. He got her number and asked her on a date and the rest is history. He treats her like any other person and is really special. As corny as it sounds he really cares and is such a good person," David's friend Caroline Harrison told Star magazine.

While Britney is smitten with her new man, her father, who is co-conservator of her affairs, initially had him undergo a background check and sign a non-disclosure contract as a matter of precaution. "Before David started spending time with Brit, he had to undergo a background check, and sign a confidentiality agreement, all arranged by Papa Spears. David had absolutely no problem with it, and completely understood why it was being done," a source said.

Ford Focus ST

Europe always seems to get the best of breed when it comes to cars. Regardless of the make or model, Europe takes delivery of vehicles we can only dream of over here in America. Here in the States we’re often left with slightly bland, dumbed down, and unappealing vehicle selection. Even Ford, an American company, offers vehicles in Europe that we can’t get here at home like the Ford Falcon and Focus RS, which we’ll zone in more later in the article.

Europeans have a knack for the ultimate driving experience, and one thing we noticed during a visit over the Atlantic during the summer was their love of hatchbacks. No, we're not talking about some hokey-puck cheap car that you'd find a teenager racing around town in. These vehicles are actually pretty awesome. We've put together our list of five hot hatches to look out for and consider if and when you’re in the market. Read on!

Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren

Nearly six months after his public apology to his wife, Tiger Woods’ marriage to Elin Nordegren is officially over.

Both parties appeared briefly in a Florida courtroom today to finalize their agreement.

The divorce came nearly 9 months after Tiger Woods hit both a tree and a hydrant outside of the family home in Florida. That incident lead to a string of reports about the golf star’s infidelities.

No financial details about the split have been made public, but the two will reportedly “share custody” of their two children - daughter Sam, 3, and son Charlie, 19 months – according to a statement on Woods’ website.

Yankees World SeriesWhat does April mean to the sporting world? Well, there’s the Final Four on the NCAA March Madness tournament.

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Sports, Videos,


Operation “Repair Tiger’s Image” just entered its next phase.

Nearly a month after addressing the public for the very first time, granted his first one-on-one interviews. Tonight, both ESPN’s Tom Rinaldi and the Golf Channel’s Kelly Tilghman aired their exclusive chats with the embattled golfer.

During both interviews, Woods, who intends to make his comeback during next month’s Masters golf tournament, made references to his 45-day stint in rehab. Although he declined to specify what he was receiving treatment for, he did say that he was forced to take a “brutal” look at himself. Asked why he never sought help earlier, Woods stated: “Well, I didn’t know I was that bad. I didn’t know that I was that bad.” (Uh, how many women do you have to sleep with before it’s considered “bad”?)

In addition to the video above, you can watch the Golf Channel’s interview with Woods here and/or read ESPN’s full transcript after the jump.
