Beyonce and Jay-Z: Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin’s Marriage Counselors

Posted by Adam

Gwyneth PaltrowGWYNETH Paltrow and Chris Martin turned to their superstar friends Beyonce and Jay-Z when their marriage first started to hit the skids.

Chris and Gwyneth announced their split on March 25 in a statement posted to her website goop, called “Conscious Uncoupling.” The couple raise two kids together.

But despite their split, the couple did everything they could to make the marriage work — including reaching out to Jay and Bey.

“Chris and Gwyneth often struggled with having their marriage dragged into the media spotlight,” a source said.

“Despite trying their best to avoid media scrutiny — remember they were rarely photographed together during their marriage — they were always aware the tabloids were interested in their relationship.

“No one can quite understand this like Jay-Z and Beyonce, who also try their best to keep their private lives private. It was one of the many things the two couple bonded over.

“Whenever they hit bumps in the road, Chris and Gwyneth would always seek solace in Jay and Bey. It was a great help at first, but things eventually broke down so much between Chris and Gwyneth that no one could really do anything.”

Back in 2010, Showbiz Spy reported that Gwyneth had been texting Beyonce for advice on how to move forward with Chris.

“Gwyneth and Beyonce have become really close,” blabbed one loose-lipped source. “They met through their husbands — who are great friends and hit it off immediately.

“A couple of months back Beyonce sent Gwyneth a text just asking how she was and Gwyneth replied saying she was stressed out and not doing great.

“Gwyneth trusts Bey and thinks she knows what she’s talking about because she and Jay-Z make their relationship work, despite their super-busy careers.

“Ironically, Beyonce originally took advice from Gwyneth in how to keep her relationship private and out of the public eye, so in a way she’s returning the favor by lending an ear to her now.”

In 2012, the two families reportedly went on vacation together.

Young scores 26 as Wizards halt eight-game skid

WASHINGTON (AP) — John Wall took a jet-setter’s trip to Lexington, Ky., and brought home some of that UK winning magic.
Nick Young got all flashy with a pair of highlight dunks, and JaVale McGee got the better of his head-to-head with Andrew

Washington Wizards
were finally winners again Wednesday night, snapping an eight-game skid with a 100-85 victory over the
Milwaukee Bucks

Wall had 15 points, six assists and seven rebounds one night after returning to his old school to watch Kentucky beat Tennessee.
Wall left Washington after Tuesday’s practice, sat courtside, got a standing ovation, spoke to the Wildcats in the locker
room, flew back home and tucked himself in at his usual wee-hours time.

“Seeing them play hard and seeing them win might have brought some excitement for me today,” Wall said. “I usually go to bed
about 2 or 3 (a.m.). I know some people were probably concerned and saying I might be tired or I shouldn’t have went to the
game, but I think I got back at a reasonable time. That’s the time I usually go to sleep. I took me a nap today. That’s the
thing I usually do.”

Young scored 26 points, McGee had 16 points and 17 rebounds, and Cartier Martin hit a career-high five 3-pointers and finished
with 15 points. The Wizards took the lead 5 minutes into the game and never lost it, leading by double digits for nearly the
entire second half.

The win kept Washington with a winning record at home (14-12), a welcome contrast to the team’s 0-25 mark on the road. The
Wizards have one more game in the homestand before they put their dubious streak on the line in a much-anticipated – at least
from a painful-to-watch standpoint – visit to last-place Cleveland on Sunday.

“We really need these wins,” McGee said, “so we can go on the road and get some wins, too.”

Young had a flying one-handed baseline dunk in the first half and scored 11 points in the 16-4 run that gave the Wizards a
20-point lead early in the third quarter. Among the highlights: Young picked off a pass, tossed the ball to Wall, then received
an alley-opp pass back from the rookie to finish off the fast break with another one-handed jam.

So which was his favorite?

“I’m going to say the flying one-hand,” Young said. “I haven’t done one of the those in a while.”

Brandon Jennings scored 20 points to lead the Bucks, who have lost five of six and fell 2 1/2 games behind the eighth and
final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. Milwaukee was hoping to build some momentum after a home win over Toronto on
Tuesday, but, as coach Scott Skiles said before the game: “We haven’t done a good enough job this year of beating teams around
or below our own record.”

“We needed this win tonight. It’s important for us to beat these teams that we’re capable of beating,” said Corey Maggette,
who scored 10 points. “We took a step back.”

McGee had his first double-double since Jan. 24, pulling down more rebounds than in his last four games combined (12) and
getting in the last word against Bogut. Bogut scored eight of Milwaukee’s first 10 points, but didn’t score again until 2
1/2 minutes to play in the game.

The Bucks were also outrebounded 51-39 and made only 5 of 12 free throws.

“They pretty much dominated us all over the floor,” Skiles said. “They outrebounded us. They went 10 for 16 from three. We
couldn’t get to the line. When we did, we couldn’t make our free throws. We tried to hang in there, but we just couldn’t.”

The Bucks are finally getting healthy after a season filled with injuries, but it’s going to take a while before everyone’s
back to form.

“I’m still struggling with my outside shot – no legs, a little bit – but just trying to get to the basket to do what I can,”
said Jennings, who was only 1 for 6 from 3-point range in his seventh game back from a broken foot.

Meanwhile, the Wizards were having fun, despite being undermanned in the frontcourt. Even guard Kirk Hinrich had a rare highlight
block, rejecting John Salmons’ drive into the seats. Hinrich has only seven blocks on the season.

The Wizards dressed only 10 players, and all the missing notables were forwards: Al Thornton (dislocated right middle finger),
Yi Jianlian (sprained left ankle) and Josh Howard (sore left knee). In addition Rashard Lewis played with stiffness in his
right knee and scored only three points in 29 minutes.

Several Washington played credited the win to a feisty attitude recently at practice.

“It’s been very competitive, a lot of guys getting into arguments, really just competing,” McGee said.

So who wins the arguments?

“Whoever’s right.”

Notes: Milwaukee F Chris Douglas-Roberts was suffering from an illness and did not play until the final 1:10. … Bucks F-C
Larry Sanders sat out with back spasms.

Students remember Seagraves senior Alex Brown

By Ann Wyatt Little  – bio | email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) –  Two South Plains communities are mourning the loss of Seagraves High School Senior Alex Brown. She left her home in Wellman for school Tuesday morning but never arrived.

DPS troopers say Brown was traveling on Old Seagraves Road sometime between 9 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. Old Seagraves Road runs parallel to Highway 62/82, and is hidden from the Highway.

When Alex’s mom, a teacher at the high school, learned her daughter was not in class for second period she left to retrace her daughter’s drive to school. That’s when she found her truck and called 911 just before 10 a.m. DPS says the truck skidded for 300 feet and flipped. The accident is still under investigation. It is unclear whether fog or speed played a role.

AeroCare took Brown to University Medical Center where she died. Troopers say the teen was not wearing a seatbelt.

Monday morning’s accident shocked the town of 2,300 and those who knew Alex Brown. You’ve probably seen her whether you know it or not if you’ve been to a Seagraves Eagles game. Brown was the Seagraves Eagle student mascot.

Students and teachers are remembering her spirit and smile. “It happened so quickly, so suddenly and unexpectedly,” said Seagraves High School Principal Joel Haragan. He had to tell his students Alex Brown was in a better place. There was not a dry eye in the school gym.

“Everyone wants to know why this happened,” said Haragan to his students. He was trying to make sense of the senseless. He told his students that they had to come together and unite, and that’s what they did.

“I say we get down there hold hands and pray,” said Freshman Alexander Medina. Following his lead, students left their seats for the gym floor.

Hand by hand, 150 students stood on the same floor Brown could be found running up and down. They prayed for her and her family. “The good Lord is going to get us through this,” said Haragan.

 Some began to sing the lyrics to Amazing Grace. Haragan said Alex wasn’t bashful about talking about her walk with the Lord at all. “She lived her life in such a way that she was looked up to by kids and teachers,” added Haragan.

The 17-year-old sang soprano and was involved in FFA. She played on the basketball team and the straight A student was working to become valedictorian of her class. 

Her friends left the gym Tuesday with heavy hearts. “I think she would want more of a celebration than sad tears,” said Haragan. Through the ears her classmates wasted no time in honoring Alex.

Principal Haragan says there will be a hole and that Alex will always be an Eagle. “I know she’s seen the light and she doesn’t want to come back,” said Haragan.

Principal Haragan reminded his students to drive safely and buckle up. Students decided they will dedicate the year book to Alex. They will all be wearing button pins with her picture on it to school.

Counselors will be on hand for those students who need them.
