Brittney Griner has begun her trial on drug charges in Russia after being detained in the country for four months.

Wearing handcuffs and a Jimi Hendrix T-shirt, the WNBA star appeared in Khimki City Court near Moscow on June 30 for the first official hearing. There, a prosecutor laid out her charges of smuggling narcotic drugs, in the form of less than a gram of cannabis oil, into Russia, CNN reported, quoting a reporter for Russian state news agency TASS.

Brittney did not enter a plea. If convicted, she faces up to 10 years in prison. The next hearing is now set for July 7.

As for how she is feeling? “She’s worried, naturally,” one of Brittney’s attorneys Maria Blagovolina, one of Griner’s attorneys, said when asked about her client’s mood, per NBC News.

Brittney, who plays for the WNBA’s Phoenix Mercury and for a Russian basketball team during the league’s off-season, was arrested in February at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport for allegedly possessing vape cartridges containing cannabis oil.

There are almost too many Princess Diana fashion moments to count but in honor of Princess Diana’s birthday, let’s reminisce  some of her best looks. Her wedding gown was nothing short of epic. Of course, there’s that infamous “revenge dress” following her split from Prince Charles. Even the outfits she wore after giving birth to her sons Prince William and Prince Harry became instantly iconic. Even her casual attire made an impact.

Many people remember the Virgin Atlantic sweatshirt she wore in the 1990s when she was en route her gym for a workout. And that’s because she wore that same sweatshirt many times. Sure, she liked it, but it was actually much more strategic than that. She intentionally repeated the outfit in an attempt to decrease the value of paparazzi shots. 

During a 2018 episode of Yahoo’s The Royal Box, Princess Diana’s trainer Jenni Rivett recalled, “I remember one of her strategies was that she was going to wear the same Virgin sweatshirt every single session.” Of course, the world was still just as interested in Diana, but her plan was rather clever. And, ironically enough, her attempt to quell the attention she received actually resulted in yet another legendary look.

Who would have ever thought that a Virgin Atlantic sweatshirt would become so fashionable? But, then again, that was (and still is) the influence of Princess Diana. Even if you’re not avoiding the paparazzi, you can sport a very similar sweatshirt as the late royal.

S Club 7 ‘s Rachel Stevens has announced she is splitting from her husband of 13 years, Alex Bourne. The Dancing on Ice host said it had been a “difficult decision”.

In a statement posted on Instagram, Rachel wrote: “I just wanted to share with you all that after time and consideration the difficult decision has been made for Alexander and I to separate. 

“While we are no longer partners in marriage, we will remain partners in parenthood to our beautiful girls and continue with love and respect for each other. 

“I feel so incredibly grateful for the life we built together, and will now continue to be focused on moving forward, united as a family.”

The pair originally tied the knot back in 2009, after meeting when Rachel was just 12 years old. 

They dated as teenagers before drifting apart for a few years, but then rekindled their flame later in life.

Their glamorous Mayfair wedding, hosted in London hotel Claridges, was covered by HELLO! magazine, with blushing bride Rachel looking a vision in white.

The ceremony featured ice sculptures, orchids, grand pianos and a ballroom adorned with silk.

Rachel walked down the aisle to her own S Club 7 hit ‘I’ve Never Had A Dream Come True’ – even though none of her bandmates were invited.

During an interview on Loose Women, Rachel revealed: “We were boyfriend and girlfriend when we were 12.

“We were boyfriend and girlfriend on and off during our teens until I got into the band, and he went off and did his stuff.

“Then we bumped into each other randomly in our late twenties, and at that point, I’d sworn off men, but it was really lovely to see him.

“But I was going off to LA at the time, so no, but then we reconnected. We obviously had all of that history and now, the rest is history.”

The former couple share daughters Amelie, 11, and Minnie, seven.

Rachel rose to fame in the 1990s when she starred in the chart-topping band S Club 7 with Paul Cattermole, Jo O’Meara, Bradley McIntosh, Hannah Spearritt, Jon Lee and Tina Barrett.

But she confirmed she no longer counts her ex-bandmates as friends, revealing: “I haven’t seen any of them for so long, so no, I don’t think any of them will be there,” she said at the time.

“It’s not because I don’t want them, but because we’re not really in touch anymore. Our paths have gone in different directions.”

bookmark_borderJena Frumes Claims Ex Jason Derulo Cheated on Her

Jenna Frumes is taking aim at her ex Jason Derulo.

Just a month after the duo—who share son Jason King, 13 months—fueled reconciliation rumors again, Jenna shot down any rumblings about their relationship—or lack thereof. She started off by sharing a screenshot of an Instagram user’s comment, which read, “You’re not married which means your child is a bastard and you’re playing the w—e role – Ya’ll got morals mixed up.”

Then she defended herself while firing off a slew of accusations against Derulo. “I wouldn’t call myself a w—e,” she wrote June 30. “It’s unfortunate my situation didn’t work out because we once did aspire to be married but maybe it’s best to be single than to be in a relationship & constantly be disrespected & cheated on and lied to. Or is it better to stay & be quiet so people like you…approve?”

E! News has reached out to Derulo for comment and has not heard back.
