Now from the “news I’d rather ignore” department.
It appears Thunder forward James Harden has bagged a celeb girlfriend, or something to that effect. Who knows what the right term is these days?
Anyway, according to mediatakeout.com, Harden and rapper Trina are dating “and it’s serious.”
According to very “in-the-know” sources, James has been COURTING Trina since this summer. He’s bought her GIFTS, flown cross country to be near her . . . and wined and dined the beautiful Trina. And now Trina’s HEAD-OVER-HEELS in love with James.”
I realize a good majority of Thunder heads probably have no idea who Trina is. And I’ll let you decide how much you want to know. You can read up on her by visiting her Wikipedia page. In a nutshell, she’s a 33-year-old rapper and model from Miami who’s been in the music industry since 1998. She’s produced hits such as “Nann…,” “Pull Over,” “Shut up,” “Here we go” and “Don’t trip.” Here’s a picture of Trina on somebody’s red carpet.
In the past, Trina has dated rapper Lil Wayne and NBA forward Kenyon Martin. She also has been linked to former Oklahoma State receiver and current Dallas Cowboys standout Dez Bryant, although both denied they were dating.
Harden has exchanged several messages with Trina on Twitter, with the two playfully bantering about marrying one another. The “twlirting” can be seen in the above mediatakeout.com link. Harden also has watched Trina perform, standing at the back of the stage as the rapper does her thing.
Why does any of this matter? In all honesty, it doesn’t. But don’t be surprised, if there is anything to the reported relationship between the two, if Trina is spotted at a Thunder game or two this season. Only a few “non-local” celebrities have attended Thunder home games since the franchise relocated here. Trina would join Xzibit and Cee Lo Green as rappers who have taken in a game in OKC.
