In the wake of the Ray Rice scandal, the Carolina Panthers made the decision to bench their 6-foot-4, 275 pound defensive end, Greg Hardy.

On Sunday, Hardy was deactivated just before the team’s game against the Detroit Lions because of  his recent domestic violence conviction. The team confirmed the news on Twitter, writing that it was coach Ron Rivera’s “decision to deactivate Hardy and that it was in the best interest for the team.”

“We have to go through a very difficult process and he has to go through one, as do other people, as well,” Rivera said. “This is a very serious situation and set of circumstances. We are going to work things out, and, hopefully, we get it right.”

Back in May, Hardy allegedly chocked his then girlfriend, dragged her by her hair and threatened to end her life.  The NFL player was convicted in July of assault on a female and communicating threats. He was sentenced in July to 18 months of probation and a 60-day suspended sentence. Greg has appealed the guilty sentence.

Apparently, the pop diva is hoping Hov and his team can put her back on top now that she parted ways with former manager Stella Bulochnikov earlier this month.

Sources tell HipHollywood Carey is cleaning house, and has also fired her publicist, assistant and attorney Darrell Miller.

But one person who hasn’t gotten the boot is her back-up dancer boyfriend Bryan Tanaka. Rumors were swirling that she hired Tanaka to take over her day-to-day management, but he’s actually her creative director.

Carey just released her holiday movie Mariah Carey’s All I Want For Christmas Is You, and is slated to bring her Christmas concerts back to the Beacon Theater in NYC this month. She hasn’t however dropped a new album in almost four years.

Fingers crossed this new partnership with Roc Nation brings about new music, and a Mariah / Jay Z collaboration. The two did make magic back in 1999 with their #1 single “Heartbreaker.”
