U.S. Women's Soccer Team Files Complaint, Want Equal Pay to Male Soccer Players

Five members of the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team – Carli Lloyd, Alex Morgan, Megan Rapinoe, Becky Sauerbrunn and Hope Solo – want equal pay to the male players and have filed a federal labor complaint against U.S. Soccer with their rights and demands.

The five players represent the team as a whole and filed the papers on Thursday (March 31), the New York Times reports. The women allege they are paid 40% of what male players are making.

“I think the timing is right,” Carli said on the Today show. “I think that we’ve proven our worth over the years. Just coming off of a World Cup win, the pay disparity between the men and women is just too large. And we want to continue to fight.”

“We believe now the time is right because we believe it’s a responsibility for women’s sports, specifically women’s soccer, to really do whatever it takes for equal pay and equal rights and to be treated with respect,” Hope added.

U.S. Soccer responded on the Today show, stating, “We’re disappointed about this action. We’ve been a world leader in women’s soccer and are proud of the commitment we’ve made to building the women’s game in the United States over the past 30 years.”

Hope Solo Responds to Former 'DWTS' Partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Throws Major Shade

Soccer player Hope Solo is seemingly throwing some shade at her former Dancing with the Stars partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

The 35-year-old dancer was partnered with Hope, 34, in the 2011 season of the dance competition show, and recently called her a “sh–ty person” in an interview.

Hope retorted by tweeting a photo of DWTS judges Carrie Ann Inaba, Bruno Tonioli, and judge Len Goodman holding up “1″ scores on their panel. Shade! See the photo below.

Maksim and Hope came in fourth place on the show.

Maksim Chmerkovskiy Slams Hope Solo, Calls Her 'Sh--ty'

Maksim Chmerkovskiy has nothing nice to say about his former Dancing With the Stars partner Hope Solo, who he was partnered with during season 13 in September 2011.

The duo came in fourth place, but they did not get along throughout the season and Hope accused Maksim of slapping her in the face during a rehearsal.

When asked to play a game of “F–k, Marry, Kill” during an interview on the “Allegedly with Theo Von & Matthew Cole Weiss” podcast, Maksim was given his former dance partners as options.

“I would probably marry… somebody like, Misty May-Treanor was awesome. And she’s an amazing chick,” he said. “And I would definitely kill Hope Solo.”

“She’s just a sh–ty person,” Maksim added. “People can be bad or good or whatever. You can have a sh–ty life growing up. You can have a tough upbringing. You can have history. You can have whatever. But if you are just a bad person, you know what I mean? There’s no excuse for that.”

Soccer Star Hope Solo Maintains Her Innocence in Domestic Violence Case, Discusses Nude Photo Hack

Olympic soccer star Hope Solo has taken to her Facebook account to discuss her nude photo hack, as well as her ongoing domestic violence case.

The 33-year-old two-time Olympic gold medalist, who was arrested after allegedly hitting her sister and nephew earlier this summer, wrote, “It is extremely sad and unfortunate that the rights of so many women were violated by the unauthorized release of private photographs. This act goes beyond the bounds of human decency and, as such, I stand united with all the women affected and am exploring every option to protect my privacy.”

Hope continued, “In addition, while I understand that the public desires more information regarding the allegations against me, I continue to maintain my innocence against these charges. And, once all the facts come to light and the legal process is concluded, I am confident that I will be fully exonerated.”
