Tiger Woods & Lindsey Vonn Are Officially Over — But What Caused Their Breakup!?

Say it ‘aint so!

While we haven’t seen Lindsey Vonn and Tiger Woods out and about together much recently, we’re really saddened to report that the pair is officially broken up!

After three years of dating, the skier and golfer decided to call it quits on Sunday due to spending so much time apart.

Lindsey addressed the breakup directly on her Facebook page, saying:

“After nearly three years together, Tiger and I have mutually decided to end our relationship. I will always cherish the memories that we’ve created together. Unfortunately, we both lead incredibly hectic lives that force us to spend a majority of our time apart. I will always admire and respect Tiger. He and his beautiful family will always hold a special place in my heart.”

That just breaks our hearts!

We’re glad the split was mutual, and we wish them both the best, but that just stinks.

We wonder if this means they’re both going to try to date a non-famous person next??

Suspect In Queens Police Shooting Arraigned

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — The man accused of shooting an NYPD officer in the head Saturday was arraigned Sunday, but did not enter a plea.

Demetrius Blackwell, 35, was ordered to be held without bail. He is charged with two counts of attempted murder, assault and weapons offenses, WCBS 880’s Jim Smith reported.

Officer Brian Moore, 25, was recovering from surgery Sunday. He is in critical but stable condition at Jamaica Hospital, CBS2’s Ilana Gold reported.

Sources told 1010 WINS Moore is in a medically induced coma. Doctors told CBS2 it could take them a few days to determine the extent of his injuries.

A couple hundred of Moore’s colleagues in blue packed the courtroom Sunday, with cops pouring out into the hallway, WCBS 880’s Jim Smith reported.

Patrick Lynch, president of the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association, said they are going to be there for every court appearance to make sure that justice is served.

According to investigators, Moore was behind the wheel of his unmarked patrol car with his partner, Erik Jansen, around 6:15 p.m. Saturday in Queens Village. Both were wearing plain clothes and spotted Blackwell walking and adjusting something in his waistband, police said.

“Officer Moore positioned the vehicle behind the suspect and inquired about the suspect’s actions,” NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton said. “The male immediately removed a firearm from his waistband and turned in the direction of the officers and deliberately fired several times into the vehicle.”

A bullet hit Moore in the head. The officers did not get out of their car or open fire.

Moore was immediately rushed into surgery at Jamaica Hospital.

“This is a painful day for all New Yorkers. It is a painful day for all members of the NYPD,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said Saturday.

Police swarmed the area of 212th and 104th streets minutes after Blackwell allegedly opened fire and ran off.

Neighbors were startled after hearing the gunshots and nervous watching police look for the suspect.

“I heard the shots, but it was just crazy out there,” one man said. “I seen too many cop cars out here, so I just left the scene. I was right up the block.”

Detectives tracked down Blackwell about 90 minutes after the shooting at a home near the scene, but still haven’t found the weapon.

Blackwell’s court-appointed lawyer said after the arraignment that his client was arrested at a house near the shooting site without a warrant and that “the arrest may be illegal.”

A police spokesman did not immediately return a call requesting comment about the warrant.

Blackwell has nine previous arrests on his record, including charges of attempted murder, robbery, weapons possession and assault on two officers, authorities said.

If convicted, Blackwell faces 25 years to life in prison. He is due back in court Friday.

“Last night’s shooting once again reminds us of the dangers that our police officers face each day as they carry out their sworn duty to protect and serve our communities,” Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said in a news release Sunday.

One neighbor told 1010 WINS’ Derricke Dennis she recognized Blackwell from his picture.

“I have seen the gentleman in the neighborhood before, so you just never know,” the woman said. “You just never know who’s going to do what.”

“Why would somebody need to shoot somebody like that, with no remorse?” another neighbor told CBS2. “It’s not going to help nobody, man.”

Moore is the fifth NYPD officer shot since December. Officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu died Dec. 20 after a gunman shot them as they sat in their patrol car in Brooklyn.

On Jan. 5, plainclothes officers and Andrew Dossi and Aliro Pellerano were shot responding to a grocery store robbery in the Bronx. Both of those officers survived.

Draymond Green Celebrates Made 3-Pointer on Grizzlies Bench

During Sunday’s Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinals between the Memphis Grizzlies and Golden State Warriors, Warriors forward Draymond Green found himself doing something that he probably never thought he’d do on a basketball court.

rc="//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js">

Twerking.

Green knocked down a three-pointer from the corner early in the third quarter to give his team a 14-point lead. After making the shot, Green found himself right up on the Grizzlies bench. So he decided to celebrate his made field goal by shaking his rear right in front of Vince Carter’s face.

Next time, it might be better to just stick to breaking out the “three-goggles.”

Are You Tired Of Keeping Up With The Kardashians? KardBlock Is About To Make It So You Don’t Have To!

Kris Jenner is not going to like this.

If you’re not the biggest fan of keeping up with The Kardashians, then today is your lucky day!

That’s because one pop culture defector is making a browser extension that will block any and all Kim Kardashian-related news.

James Shamsi was tired of having to wade through Kendall, Kylie, and the rest of the family to get to other news, so he invented KardBlock to fix the problem.

His website clearly states his opinion on the royal fam, saying:

We don’t care about how Kanye & Kim didn’t care when Amy Schumer ‘fell over’. We don’t care about who the Kardashians are or aren’t sleeping with. We don’t care that Kim dyed her hair blonde. We don’t care about the Kardashians.

Very matter of fact.

And while James is eager to block out the Kardashians from his life, he does support one member of the family — Bruce Jenner!

While KardBlock will stop any mention of the Kardashians, Bruce and his transition will not be messed with.

In fact, the company supports his transgender identity and don’t want to hinder trans* awareness.

Will U be installing KardBlock??
