I really need Katina Powell to chill out

As a big fan of Katina Powell’s work, I must say I’m a little disappointed in her behavior lately. She is such a great author — Breaking Cardinal Rules is a masterpiece — but it’s tough to stand in her corner when she finds herself in trouble so often.

The latest allegations against Powell are pretty bad. Really bad, actually.

According to WDRB, she is under investigation for a violent robbery of a Louisville dentist:

Thomas Tyre, who has previously disclosed a relationship with Powell, claims in a Louisville Metro Police investigative report that Powell and her brother, Ernest Powell, entered his home Saturday night and Katina Powell demanded money.

Ernest Powell is accused of pulling out a knife and cutting Tyre inside his mouth. The two men struggled and Tyre suffered knife wounds on his hands, according to the report.

Tyre, 55, said Katina Powell told Ernest “not to hurt him that bad during the assault,” according to the police narrative. [WDRB]

Tyre isn’t a new character in the Katina Powell story. He’s the man she allegedly stole blank checks from and then cashed at a liquor store in a case that is still pending. He’s not so clean, either. WDRB notes he is facing three counts of unlawfully prescribing or administering controlled substances to his patients, and was arrested last month.

If I’m going to continue to back Powell, I need her to reel it in a little bit because this is killing her brand as an author. It’s also killing the value of my Katina Powell memorabilia collection.

      Why is it that because it’s alrwady been reported elsewhere they’re not allowed to talk about it? This is where I come for my info, haven’t heard about it until now, probably wouldn’t have if they didn’t post this… it’s not a race to report first, it’s a site about UK sports which yes, also involves UL

    I actually agree with medic on this one. Everybody in the BBN knew Kat Powell was trash from day one. Regardless of whether or not she helped bring down the Cards basketball program, she is terrible human being. And it’s articles like this that make me question the morals of the writers.

      Funny that all you dudes question the morality of KSR writers re: Katina Powell, but I never see you call anyone out over posts of hot co-eds with comment sections full of creeps ranking the girls on how hot they are and in which order a guy would bang them…



    • cats646

      I agree Powell is trash. She’s a hooker for crying out loud. But the way Combatmedic words things and throws a fit about stuff makes me want to punch his face.

    • Jdub, I agree with you.

    • I will add one caveat though: if someone (male or female) dresses provocatively, they can’t choose who will ogle them. That said, they don’t post those pics as much as they used to.

    • Just one more reply: none of that justifies the behavior Jdub pointed out.

    Hahahaha @ combatmedic_98… you do realize that drew is a finding father of this site right? This is their site, they can do whatever they want on here, and if you don’t like it then that’s your problem… their are other Kentucky sports media outlets but yet you continue to LIVE on KSR!!! I’m sure the entire BBN would love if you stopped all your negative comments and acting like you own a stake in this site.

      Understand it’s just my opinion as is theirs…don’t get so wound up. Don’t care who founded it, but I agreed to the user terms and know that my voice is heard as is everyone on here. Don’t chime in as well chief…scroll on!

    Don’t click! Lots of other sites out there where you won’t find this stuff. You obviously see the goons working with baby face Jones. Mostly the crap stories come from the Luke maye look alike. Louisville is our rival so it’s at their expense but I do think kids read ksr and if that’s a part of your audience then you should definitely avoid topics or at least report it in a manner that the news does since everything on ksr is stolen from somewhere else anyway. The lou isn’t trash just the typical cards fans
    And certain areas. It’s not lex for sure or others parts hell not even the same type of people but not complete trash!!!

    You don’t have to be a fan of Katina Powell just because of her ties with the Louisville scandal.

    She’s a bad person who does bad things, Louisville also did bad things. They’re not mutually exclusive. It’s not that difficult.

    Goodness, some uptight people on here today. The reason this is the best sports website in the country is because of articles like this. It makes no sense why someone would take that much time out of their day to write a complaint about an article on a website they don’t own and don’t have to visit. Great work Drew, keep it up!

    I don’t think anyone in their right mind would argue that Katina is anything more than a disgusting individual. But to tell Drew how to run his own blog is beyond stupid. Read it or don’t, nobody cares. And for sure nobody cares enough to read through the rambling, incoherent rants of some keyboard warrior who thinks his opinion is worth more than anyone else’s.
