Why Usain Bolt Dumped Girlfriend

Usain Bolt ended his six-month relationship with a Slovakian fashion designer in order to focus on the upcoming Summer Olympics.

News reports suggest Bolt’s breakup with Lubica Slovak, 28, was because of his desire to repeat his double-gold/world-record Olympic performance in London. The Jamaican swept the sprint events in 2008 and set the world marks in each race. A source close to Bolt told The Sun, “He will have plenty of time for relationships. At the moment he’s concentrating on his running career and doesn’t want anything to distract from that.”

Slovak emigrated to Canada as a teenager and later moved to Jamaica after she took a vacation there. She was introduced to Bolt by reggae singer Tami Chynn, a mutual friend.

The sprinting star was criticized in his native Jamaica when a picture of him kissing Slovak, who is white, appeared in a local newspaper. A cartoon accompanied the photo, in which Bolt was seen running past a black woman with “local” written on her shirt and into the arms of a “Slovakian fashion designer.”

The island’s second-largest newspaper published letters to the editor criticizing Bolt’s choice in women. Countless Internet comments angrily reacted to the Bolt-Slovak relationship.

‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turltes’ Remake Has Major Story Changes

Michael Bay seems to be at it again: This time the creator of mega-blockbusters is planning to produce a new, live-action version of “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.” But, if he has his way, he may need to change the name to “Not So Mutant” Alien Turtles. Definitely less catchy.

The “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” director told a crowd recently at the Nickelodeon Upfront New York event that instead of the series fans have loved about a mutant strain of turtles from earth who are obsessed with pizza and turn into two-footed creatures thanks to some transmutant goo, Bay’s reptiles will simply be an alien race.

For those a little fuzzy on these “loveable” creatures: First, it was a cartoon. Then it became a live-action film franchise in the 1990s. The original story revolves around four mutant two-footed turtles who are trained by a rat on the art of being ninjas, and are named after Renaissance artists. The four fight crime from their home base in the sewers of New York City.

Illuminati tweeted, “Michael Bay is re-making Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. If Michael Bay destroys this classic, he will surely be sacrificed for his mistakes.”

The blog /Film agreed, arguing, “If you’re going to make a movie about mutant turtles, that’s what they should be, right?” Bay will produce the movie. Jonathan Liebesman (“Wrath of the Titans”) will direct.

Fans can be on the lookout for the new, probably explosion-filled, action-packed alien version of “TMNT” that is scheduled to open December 25, 2013.
