Chad Johnson’s Time Behind Bars May Be Reduced



After being ordered to spend 30 days behind bars, Chad Johnson’s lawyer is asking a Broward County judge to reduce his client’s sentence.

HipHollywood spoke with Adam Swickle who told us that a hearing will take place on his client’s behalf Monday morning. “I will be asking the judge to modify the time served, and to terminate any [additional] requirements,” Swickle told us.

During Johnson’s probation violation hearing earlier this week, the former NFL star slapped Swickle’s behind when the judge revealed that he would not have to serve jail time for a probation violation. The judge took offense to the butt slap and changed her tune, sentencing the former Dancing with the Stars contestant to a month in the slammer.

Johnson will remain in custody until Monday’s hearing. When asked how his client was currently doing behind bars, Swickle declined comment.

Dwyane Wade On New Heartfelt Documentary: It’s A Story “I Never Got A Chance To Tell As A Kid”



It’s been an epic week for Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union.

It first started with one of the biggest trades of the year with Wade returning back to Miami to finish the rest of the season with the Heat. “I was happy,” Wade told us on Thursday night about the trade.

He added, “The journey of the NBA took me to Chicago, it took me to Cleveland, but it also brought me back to Miami; a place from a basketball sense birthed me.”

Days following the big NBA announcement, the lovebirds then celebrated the release of Dwyane’s documentary, Shot in the Dark, which the NBA champion produced alongside Chance the Rapper.

The film follows the Orr Academy High School basketball team on Chicago’s Westside. Throughout the documentary, cameras capture the journey of individual athletes trying to make it to the NBA despite growing up in the violent streets of Chicago.

During the screening, Wade also opened up to HipHollywood about why the project was near and dear to his heart. “It’s home,” the Chicago native said. “I jumped on board right away because it’s a story being told that I never got a chance to tell as a kid. To be able to shed some positive light on a tough, dark situation for us was big.”

Union added, “I’m so proud. Coming up on Hoop Dreams … It explores so many other topics that are critical to kids in Chicago.”

As for whether or not D-Wade picked up some advice from his TV star boo, not quite. When asked what tips Union gave Wade ahead of the project, the actress told us, “None. You have to learn. Humility and school of hard knocks. Things are not going to go your way and you have to learn through experience just like the rest of us.”

Check out the documentary on February 24 on Fox Sports.
