Conor McGregor, the notorious Irish MMA fighter, recently attended the boxing match between Anthony Joshua and Robert Helenius. However, his night out was not without controversy.
McGregor arrived at the venue accompanied by his own entourage of Forged Irish Stout ring girls. Among the group of women was boxer and OnlyF*ns star Ebanie Bridges, who was dressed in similar attire to the ring girls. This sparked speculation and criticism from fans, as McGregor’s long-time fiancee Dee Devlin was pregnant with their fourth child at the time.
According to a report by The Sun, McGregor was later seen at various locations in London, including the Novikov restaurant in Mayfair, the Reign nightclub in Picadilly, and The Berkeley Hotel. Several women were seen following him, with at least three different women spotted exiting McGregor’s bus at the hotel.
One of the women identified was actress and estate agent Jacqueline Pirkle, who reportedly had interactions with McGregor that his security team tried to keep private. Former Love Island star Luca Bish was also present in the group.
In a recent episode of the Joe Rogan Experience, comedian Tim Dillon discussed the ongoing controversy surrounding American rapper and musician Lizzo. Lizzo is currently facing allegations of sexual harassment, racism, and body-shaming from her former backup dancers.
Dillon suggested that the dancers may have been offended due to the physical demands of their performances, particularly because they were overweight. Rogan chimed in, sharing his opinion on the matter. He highlighted the challenges faced by individuals who are not accustomed to intense physical activity and how it can impact their bodies.
Rogan’s perspective adds to the ongoing discussion surrounding Lizzo and the allegations against her. It sheds light on the potential physical strain that performers may experience and the importance of considering their well-being.
