Entertainment Events in Oklahoma
It seems to be a mild weekend in terms of entertainment for Oklahoma City’s Paycom Center and Tulsa’s BOK Center.
In Oklahoma City, country singer Kenny Chesney will perform at the Paycom Center on April 1 with the Oklahoma City Thunder playing the Phoenix Suns the following day.
Paycom will not host any events following Sunday’s game, as the Thunder have two away games before returning home to play Memphis on April 9. Additionally, no other musicians or entertainment were scheduled for the next seven days.
Similarly, Tulsa’s BOK Center is only hosting two events. On April 1, the Turnpike Troubadours will return for a second show following their March 30 performance. Then, Tulsa Oilers Hockey will play next week between April 7 and April 9.
Jonathan Majors Arrested for Assault
On March 25, actor Jonathan Majors (Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, Creed III) was arrested on misdemeanor charges after a reported domestic dispute with his girlfriend.
The actor, 33, was arrested in New York and charged with strangulation, assault and harassment.
The story was first broken by TMZ on Saturday, who reported Majors’ texts from other women angered his girlfriend. This led to a confrontation ultimately involving the police. The officers observed “minor injuries” on her head and immediately arrested the actor.
Majors was released later in the night with no bond due to a restraining order and was arraigned on Sunday. He is set to appear in court on May 8.
Majors’ career looked to be on the rise, especially with his appearances in the new Ant Man and Creed installments. Many fans remain unsure of his career’s future given the U.S. Army announced advertisements featuring Majors would be pulled.
Gwyneth Paltrow Wins Court Case
A Utah jury sided with actress Gwyneth Paltrow on Thursday, deciding she was not at fault for a 2016 ski accident.
In a lawsuit filed by retired optometrist Terry Sanderson, Paltrow was accused of reckless skiing which allegedly caused him to suffer four broken ribs, a concussion and lasting brain damage.
After deliberations, which began earlier this afternoon, the jury concluded Sanderson, not Paltrow, was at fault.
Paltrow released a statement after the verdict was announced.
“I am pleased with the outcome and I appreciate all the hard work of Judge Holmberg and the jury,” Paltrow said. “[I] thank them for their thoughtfulness in handling this case.
