Lori is definitely living her best life these days, as she and boyfriend Michael B. Jordan, 34, are enjoying love in the limelight since going public with their relationship in Jan. 2021. The model daughter of Steve Harvey, 65, shared her tips for relationship success with POPSUGAR for their Jan/Feb cover story, published Jan. 25. “Always communicate. Overcommunicate, even, so you are always on the same page,” Lori said. “Also, be friends first. You know how sometimes you fight with your siblings and, of course, you love them, but you’re like, ‘I don’t even like you right now’? It’s important to always be friends whether you like the person.”

As for strengthening their relationship, this meant for her beau to learn more about her passion for skincare. Lori  — who launched her founder of SKN By Lori Harvey brand in late 2021 — said, “Mike doesn’t know a ton about skincare — everything he’s learned, he learned when we got together. He used to just wash his face with a warm rag and walk out the door, and it would make me cringe.”

She did, however, say that it was better to have he and others’ opinions on the matter. “Before I launched, my anxiety was through the roof,” Lori said. “I questioned every little thing, like, ‘Is my packaging OK? Should I have redone this, should I redo this? Is this the right time, should we push the launch date back?’”

Tristan Thompson is apologizing to Khloe Kardashian after revealing that his paternity test results show he IS the father of Maralee Nichols’ baby.

Tristan Thompson just confirmed that Maralee Nicholsnewborn baby boy is his son. He took to his Instagram Story on Jan. 3 to reveal that “paternity test results reveal” he “fathered a child with Maralee Nichols“. In his lengthy message, he wrote, “I take full responsibility for my actions. Now that paternity has been established, I look forward to amicably raising our son. I sincerely apologize to everyone I’ve hurt or disappointed throughout this ordeal both publicly and privately.”

Aside from Maralee, Tristan’s on-again/off-again girlfriend Khloé Kardashian may be the one most affected by the NBA player’s latest scandal, which is why he immediately followed his Monday evening message with a direct apology to The Kardashians star. “Khloé, you don’t deserve this,” he wrote in a second post. “You don’t deserve the heartache and humiliation I have caused you. You don’t deserve the way I have treated you over the years. My actions certainly have not lined up with the way I view you. I have the utmost respect and love for you. Regardless of what you may think. Again, I am so incredibly sorry.”

Khloe, who Tristan shares 3-year-old daughter True Thompson with, has yet to respond to Tristan’s heartbreaking message, but HollywoodLife reached out to her rep for a comment, and we did not receive an immediate response.

Tristan’s reveal comes one month after Daily Mail exposed his months-long affair with Maralee Nichols. In court documents filed in the Superior State of California, County of Los Angeles, and obtained by Daily Mail, Tristan confirmed he had sex with Maralee in March 2021, while he was celebrating his 30th birthday. However, he also stated that he didn’t think he was the father of the baby that she birthed in early December.

While Tristan waited for paternity test results, he and Maralee battled it out in court. She sued Tristan for child support, and claimed he tried to pay her $75,000 to keep quiet about the baby. He then asked a judge last month for an emergency gag order to get Maralee to stop talking about the paternity case, and now, here we are.

According to Maralee’s timeline, it seems she and Tristan conceived their newborn son just after he reunited with Khloe last spring. However, Tristan and Khloe split up again in the summer. They’ve since supported each other since the breakup and are co-parenting their daughter together.

This is Tristan’s third known child. He also shares 4-year-old son Prince with ex Jordan Craig.

Michael and Lori recently celebrated their one-year anniversary in November, after making their relationship Instagram official last January. And this past April, Michael told PEOPLE why he’s been so open about his love life and sharing their romance on social media. “I’m still private, and I want to protect that, but it just felt like it was a moment of just wanting to put it out there and move on. I am extremely happy,” he said.

He continued, “I think when you get older, you feel more comfortable about the [public nature] of the business that we’re in. So for me, it was a moment to, I guess, take ownership of that and then get back to work.”

And this past December, Michael appeared on The View and admitted he has “fallen in love”. While Michael didn’t mention his girlfriend’s name, he said his relationship has helped him take on sexier movie roles. “One of the things that helps me choose roles or which ones I stay away from is how much I feel like I have to give to the role. Certain life experiences I never had. So I didn’t feel like I could pull from a personal place. I could not make it connect to me,” he said. “Now that I am in a place where I have fallen in love. I know what that’s like.”

Katharine McPhee has been married to music executive David Foster since 2019. Find out everything she’s said about their relationship here.

Katharine McPhee and David Foster have been happily married since June 2019. David, 72, is Katharine’s second husband, and Katharine, 37, is his fifth wife. The American Idol alum and the record executive seem incredibly in love, and it seems like David’s family, including his daughters also adore his wife. Find out everything you need to know about Katharine and David’s relationship here!

How did Katharine meet David?

It’s not clear exactly how long David and Katharine have known each other, but it’s not surprising that they’ve crossed paths, since they’re both in the music industry! In fact, when Katharine had her first wedding to Nick Cokas in 2008, David helped her during a musical tribute to her then-husband. Photos of the wedding revealed that David played piano as Katharine performed Natalie Cole’s “Unforgettable,” via People.

After Katharine filed for divorce in 2014, she dated Elyes Gabel until 2016. Katharine and David were first spotted looking cozy together in May 2017, and the pair got engaged in 2018. A year after their June 2019 wedding, Katharine wrote a sweet anniversary post for the producer in June 2020. “A year ago today I married the love of my life. Thank you for always loving me and inspiring me in all aspects of my life,” she wrote at the time. “I love you. Here’s to the future!”

Katharine McPhee — Pics Of The Singer




They have one son together

Katharine gave birth to her first son Rennie David in February 2021. Shortly after he was born, the singer shared her excitement for the newborn. “I love being a mommy!” she wrote in a March Instagram Story. The Smash star had revealed Rennie’s name during a March interview with The Today Show, after Hoda Kotb asked for the name. After spilling the beans on her son’s name, Katharine joked that her husband was angry at her for saying his name during a radio interview. “I think he’s just like, ‘It’s the only thing we have to keep private.’ And I’m like, ‘I’m sorry, she asked me the question!” she explained. “We don’t want to be that pretentious over the name, but just, it’s the only kind of thing you can hold onto that feels private, you know, that you can kind of keep.”

Before Rennie, David had five daughters from past relationships: Alison Jones, 51, Amy, 48, Sara, 40, Erin, 39, and Jordan, 35. Alison had been given up for adoption when she was first born. He had Amy with singer B.J. Cook, and his three other daughters were from his marriage to Rebecca Dyer. 

David has gushed over his wife

It’s clear that David is absolutely in love with his wife. He’s made plenty of Instagram posts celebrating Katharine’s beauty. Katharine shared a screenshot of one of their text exchanges to her Instagram Story back in September 2021, and David couldn’t help but let his wife know how beautiful he thought she was. He called her a “Hot mom” and told her that she “look[ed] amazing” after she sent him a video of her in her underwear.

Katharine and David also spoke to HollywoodLife about how they were able to bond with each other during their time on The Masked Singer in a December 8 interview. “We spent a lot of time together, which we’re used to doing, but it was quality time. It was fun,” David said. Katharine also shared that it was a joy to get work together. “It’s creative time. It was fun to go home as well in David’s studio and have him work obsessively as he has always done on the arrangements because that’s just what he does,” she said.

David’s family has defended Katharine from critics

David’s daughters have also clearly taken a liking to their step-mom. After critics shamed the singer for posting a photo where she looked fabulous nearly a year after Rennie’s birth, Sara and Erin left supportive comments for Katharine on a post where she refused to apologize for celebrating her good looks. “If you had of had cellulite and stretch marks in the photo and the caption was exactly the same we would all be celebrating his post. But you don’t and that’s not allowed to be celebrated,” Sara wrote in a comment, before mentioning that other people use other methods to slim down postpartum. “You have been working your a** off in the gym.”

David’s other daughter Erin also said that everyone should be accepting of her step-mom, and she mentioned that you shouldn’t shame anyone after giving birth no matter what. “You can’t shame someone for feeling cute after a baby whether she’s sharing stretch marks or a six pack. Let her live,” she wrote.

It’s not surprising that the daughters have stood up for their step-mom. Erin even joked about Katharine’s beauty being the only problem that they have with their dad’s wife in a June 2020 interview with People. “Our biggest issue with [Katharine] is how hot she is,” she said. “Her body is insane. When she comes over for family Sundays, I’m like, ‘Do not get in a bikini.’ My husband’s always like, ‘Kat, get in the pool!’ And I’m like, ‘Simon…’”

Katharine’s first husband was Nick Cokas

Before she tied the knot with David, Katharine was married to Nick Cokas. The pair wed in 2008, but they split up in 2014, and their divorce was finalized in 2016. The pair’s relationship ended after Katharine was photographed kissing her Smash director Michael Morris in October 2013. As the divorce was filed for, Katharine released a statement, via E! News. “After six years of marriage, and having been separated for the past year, Katharine McPhee has filed for a dissolution of marriage from Nick Cokas. The two have an amicable relationship and will remain friends. They ask that people respect their privacy during this time,” the statement read.

Cardi B and Offset disagree about how to dress their three-month-old son in a hilarious new video.

Cardi B, 29, and Offset, 30, were shopping for clothes for their baby boy earlier this week at Target and had some hilarious disagreements about what to buy for the three-month-old! In an Instagram story taken by Cardi,  the “WAP” rapper’s first proposition was a small grey tweed fedora hat. Offset unfortunately didn’t agree with the sartorial choice, joking, “Oh hell nah! I’m not putting that s—t on my son, man … Got my boy looking like Ne-Yo!” The Migos rapper was referring to the R&B star who famously sported many hats when his career first popped off in the late 2000s.

Cardi then offered another option: a slightly formal outfit consisting of bright red pants, printed suspenders, and a blue button-down. “Ain’t this cute?” Cardi asked her hubby. “Hell the f—k no!” Offset declared, noting that the preppy style looked like something Carlton Banks from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air would wear.

The two chart-topping rappers welcomed their son on Sept. 4, 2021. “We are so overjoyed to finally meet our son. He is already loved so much by family and friends and we can’t wait to introduce him to his other siblings,” Cardi and Offset said in a statement via email to HollywoodLife. Offset also posted a sweet candid photo cuddling the baby boy. “Chapter 5,” he wrote in his caption on Instagram.

Tristan Thompson tried to convince his ex-fling Maralee Nichols that she was better off taking a $75,000 payment from him than fighting for child support since he plans to retire in 2022.

In a text allegedly sent by Tristan Thompson to his ex-fling, Maralee Nichols, which was obtained by HollywoodLife in a legal filing, Khloe Kardashian‘s ex urged the personal trainer to take the $75,000 he was offering in exchange for dropping her paternity lawsuit against him.

“You know how I feel. My feelings haven’t changed at all. Wont be involved at all. Btw if you think having this baby is gonna make you some money. It’s completely wrong,” the message read. Tristan also allegedly claimed that he plans on retiring from basketball in 2022, as the text continued, “You are aware that I’m retiring after this season. So in terms of support it will be whatever is required monthly for someone who’s unemployed. It’s texas so it will be only a couple hundred dollars. So you better off taking this 75k I’m offering cause you won’t get nothing near that with having a kid with a father who’s unemployed.”

Maralee’s attorney argued in the filing that Tristan filed his complain in Texas to “save” money on child support, but Maralee resides in California, and her child, who she claims is Tristan’s, was born on Dec. 3 in the Golden State. Therefore, her attorney claimed that Texas law would have no jurisdiction on the chid support ruling, according to the court filing.

Tristan, who already shared 3-year-old daughter True Thompson with Khloe, and 4-year-old son Prince with ex Jordan Craig, allegedly finished his message by telling Maralee that all she would have “is a baby with a father who has zero involvement with the child and a few hundred dollars of child support a month.”

In July, Tristan requested that Maralee take a paternity test, but it’s not yet clear if one has been taken since genetic testing can only be done once a baby is born.

Tristan Thompson’s reps and lawyers haven’t responded to our many requests for comment.

Michael B. Jordan revealed why he has no reservations about sharing his romance with Lori Harvey with the world.

True love! Michael B. Jordan, 34, knows he’s found “The One” with girlfriend of one-year Lori Harvey, 24. The Creed actor revealed how his relationship experience made him ready to finally star in a romantic comedy in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter out Dec. 1. “There are roles that I passed on that I knew I didn’t have enough life experience to play. I was like, ‘What can I pull from?’ But I finally found what love was,” he said. Talking about love in the public eye, Michael continued, “When I was younger, I don’t know if I could have handled the onslaught of opinions and being picked apart, and also being conscious of what the other person’s going to go through. It takes a special person to deal with that.”

While wary of going public, Michael said he felt his connection with Lori was “real enough” to share with the world. He explained, “There’s a premeditated planning of staying out of the way [of the public eye] that sometimes kills spontaneity and intimacy. I wanted to take that away and give this the best chance it had, in this weird world that we live in, to be somewhat normal. Long story short, I think it’s just the timing of everything. It was the right time for me. Yeah. I’m happy.”

Michael and Lori commemorated one year of dating on Nov. 16. The actor posted some cute snaps of the pair on Instagram and wrote, “Happy Anniversary. It’s been a year, crazy!!” The couple was first linked in Nov. of 2020 after Michael spent Thanksgiving with the SKN skincare founder in her hometown of Atlanta, Georgia.

Lana Nelson is the first born child of Willie and his first wife Martha Matthews, whom he was married to from 1952 until 1962. She was born in 1953 and has stepped into the spotlight once in a while. She appeared in Willie’s 1986 film Red Headed Stranger and also worked in the flick’s costume department as a costume designer. She is also credited as a producer for the upcoming documentary Lovey: King of the Roadies, which she and her dad appear in.

When she’s not working on projects with Willie, she’s appearing in his pics on social media. She can be seen smiling while promoting one of her dad’s products in the pic above.

Susie Nelson

Susie Nelson is the second daughter of Willie and Martha. She was born in 1956 and made headlines when she wrote a book based on her life as one of the most popular singers in history’s daughter. Heart Worn Memories: A Daughter’s Personal Biography of Willie Nelson was published in 1987.

Susie also worked with Willie when she was the co-host of Susie’s Gospel Hour on his Sirius XM channel Willie’s Roadhouse in 2012 and she likes to sing.

Billy Nelson

Willie “Billy” Nelson Jr. was the third child of Willie and Martha. He was born in 1958 but sadly passed away in 1991. Although a coroner ruled the death a suicide, the cause was later questioned and it was noted that he had reportedly undergone treatment for alcohol abuse a month before his passing.

Billy recorded a gospel song with Willie called “My Body’s Just a Suitcase for My Soul,” which can be heard in the video above, before his death and Willie released it in on a gospel album called Peace in the Valley in 1994. “I’ve never experienced anything so devastating in my life,” Willie told PEOPLE about his son’s death.

Micah is Willie and Annie’s youngest son. He was born in 1990 and is also a musician.

Renee Nelson

Renee is a daughter Willie found out about in 2012 but her age has never been publicly revealed. Her mother is reportedly his friend Mary Haney. “I have an old, dear friend, Mary Haney, who I’d lost touch with but recently met again after decades.

“It also turns out Renee has a daughter, Noelle, who has a daughter, ­Jordan, who I am happy to now call my great-granddaughter,” he added. “My newly discovered family sure took some time to surface.”

Jennifer Turpin will share her story of abuse during her time with now-incarcerated parents David and Louise. Here are five things to know about her.

In 2018, David and wife Louise Turpin became household names after one of their 13 children escaped their family home — described as a “house of horrors” — in Perris, California. Daughter Jordan, then 17, crawled through a window and called 911 on her parents, exposing a life of horrific abuse and maltreatment. In a home covered with filth, mold, and garbage, the police found beaten and starved children, some of which were shackled onto beds.

In 2019, David and Louise pleaded guilty to 14 felony counts, including child cruelty and torture and false imprisonment. They were sentenced to 25 years to life in prison, still remaining behind bars today. Now, sisters Jordan, 21, and Jennifer, 31, will recount their story in their first interview since their harrowing escape in a 20/20 exclusive, Escape From a House of Horror, with Diane Sawyer on Nov. 19.

Jennifer, who was 29 when police arrested her parents, is the oldest of the Turpin brood. While she’s largely kept to herself these last few years, she’ll break her silence along sister Jordan in the 20/20 exclusive. Below, five things to know about the eldest Turpin sibling.

During a court hearing in Riverside in April 2019, Jennifer was the first to read a statement against her parents. Despite the horrors she endured, the statement was full of hope, with the eldest Turpin child declaring that she’ll be taking her life back. “My parents took my whole life from me, but now I’m taking my life back,” she said, eliciting tears from her parents. “I saw my dad change my mom. They almost changed me.” Jennifer added, “I’m a fighter, and I’m strong. I’m shooting through life like a rocket.”

Jennifer armed sister Jordan with advice to plot their escape

In a preview for the upcoming 20/20 special, Jordan said she was emboldened to strategize an escape plan after two of her younger sisters had been chained to their beds for about four months. “I was so scared that one of us was actually going to die,” she said. “She was like, ‘We need to get out of here,’” Jennifer added. “So I gave her all the advice I knew, all the advice I could.” The plan was two years in the making, sped up by their mother’s announcement that they would soon move to Oklahoma. Jennifer told Diane, “The very next day we were moving. It was literally now or never.”

In the same preview, Jennifer revealed that she once managed to run away from her parents — but returned after one night because she was worried about the rest of her siblings. She recounted hitching a ride into town, where she tried to find a job and an apartment. Her minimal education made it difficult to fill out a job application, Jennifer said, adding that she ultimately returned to her family. She said of that dark time, “I was on the brink of suicide. I wanted to just end it all. All of my pain, everything.”

Jennifer’s first act of freedom involved dance 

Following the arrest of her parents, Jennifer and her siblings were taken to a hospital. They received food, medical treatment, and clean clothing — basic life necessities that they had been deprived of for so long. Jennifer told Diane that as she looked around that hospital room that day, the realization of her freedom culminated in an unlikely form of action: dance. “Music was playing, I got up,” Jennifer recalled. “I made sure there was a little bit of a floor cleared out and I danced.”

Jennifer is an aspiring author who also writes music

Amidst her freedom, Jennifer told Diane that she wanted to be a published author. The eldest Turpin is currently working at a local restaurant, writing Christian pop music that she hopes to share soon on the side. Above all, though, Jennifer is reveling in the little things that most people take for granted, like taking a leisurely walk outside. “I’m so thankful just to walk, [to] take an hour-long walk with my music,” she said. “These little things I think are things that people take for granted.”

Michael B. Jordan is preparing to step back into the ring as Adonis Creed. The actor hit the gym to prep for the third installment of ‘Creed.’

Michael B. Jordan’s preparations for Creed 3 are already underway. Celebrity trainer Corey Calliet shared a video of the actor, 34, during an intense workout session on Instagram on Tuesday, Nov. 9. Michael could be seen working on his arms and upper body strength in the clip.

A post shared by Corey Calliet (@mrcalliet)

“Director by day building a body at night!” the celebrity trainer captioned the post. “In order to achieve the great reward a certain amount of consistency must be attained…”

The star is getting into shape for Creed 3, the upcoming third installment of the Rocky spin-off franchise popularized by Sylvester Stallone. Not only will he reprise his role as Adonis “Donnie” Creed and serve as producer, but Michael will also make his directorial debut. The first two installments were directed by Ryan Coogler and Steven Caple Jr., respectively. The actor said directing has been an “aspiration” for him in a statement issued to various outlets in April.

“Directing has always been an aspiration, but the timing had to be right,” he said. “Creed III is that moment — a time in my life where I’ve grown more sure of who I am, holding agency in my own story, maturing personally, growing professionally, and learning from the Greats like Ryan Coogler, most recently Denzel Washington, and other top tier directors I respect. All of which sets the table for this moment.”

Michael added, “This franchise and in particular the themes of Creed III are deeply personal to me. I look forward to sharing the next chapter of Adonis Creed’s story with the awesome responsibility of being its director and namesake.” Tessa Thompson and Phylicia Rashad will reprise their roles as Adonis’ wife Bianca and his adoptive mother Mary Anne, respectively. Notably absent this time around will be Rocky himself, Sylvester.

Michael told IGN in April that Sylvester’s “essence” and “spirit” will forever remain a part of the franchise. “I think that Sly let it be known that he wasn’t coming back for this one but I think, you know, his essence and his spirit… there’s always going to be a little bit of Rocky within Adonis,” he said. “But this is a Creed franchise, and we really want to build this story and this world around him moving forward.”

He continued, “So, it’s always respect and always a shit-ton of love for what he’s built, but we really want to push and navigate Adonis forward and the family that he created. Hopefully you guys will love what I’m thinking, what we’re cooking up. I think it’s going to be something special.” Creed 3 is scheduled for a Nov. 23, 2022 theatrical release date.

It’s official. Paul Rudd was just named ‘PEOPLE’s ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ for the year 2021, and we have no complaints.

Paul Rudd is PEOPLE’s “Sexiest Man Alive”! The 52-year-old actor earned the coveted 2021 title along with a smoldering cover, which was revealed on the Nov. 9 episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. SEE THE COVER PHOTO HERE. 

And while we fully support him as this year’s pick (why wouldn’t we?! Just look at the photo below), the actor is having a hard time accepting the title. “I do have an awareness, enough to know that when people hear that I’d be picked for this, they would say, ‘What?’” the actor told PEOPLE in this week’s cover story. “This is not false humility. There are so many people that should get this before me.”

But fans have fallen in love with Paul, who will soon star in the new Apple TV+ series The Shrink Next Door as well as the upcoming film Ghostbusters: Afterlife, over the years, so we have a feeling they’ll be overjoyed by this decision. And he should learn to accept it.

But Paul, who has risen to superstardom over the past several years, says he’s the happiest at home with his wife of 18 years, Julie, 53, and their kids Jack, 17, and Darby, 12. “When I think about myself, I think of myself as a husband and a father, like I’m that,” he said. “I just hang out with my family when I’m not working. That’s what I kind of like the most.”

So how did his wife react to the news? Paul said, “She was stupefied. But you know she was very sweet about it. After some giggling and shock, she said ‘Oh, they got it right.’ And that was very sweet. She was probably not telling the truth, but what’s she going to say?”

And now that he’s officially “sexy”, Paul said he expects his life to change a bit. “I’m hoping now that I’ll finally be invited to some of those sexy dinners with Clooney and Pitt and B. Jordan. And I figure I’ll be on a lot more yachts. I’m excited to expand my yachting life. And I’ll probably try to get better at brooding in really soft light. I like to ponder. I think this is going to help me become more inward and mysterious. And I’m looking forward to that,” he joked.

Last year’s Sexiest Man Alive was actor Michael B. Jordan, 34. Mel Gibson was the first-ever to receive the title back in 1985, and several A-Listers like Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Johnny Depp, and Richard Gere have been named PEOPLE‘s SMA twice.

Saweetie was seen recently snapping pics with Adele at a Lakers game and we now know why as she talks new music and more in this EXCLUSIVE interview!

Rapper and queen of the nail art, Saweetie, 28, was recently seen kicking off the Lakers’ NBA season next to none other than Adele, 33! While we were all hoping the sighting means the two were chatting about a future collaboration, something the rapper herself said she’d be into, we found out the meaning behind the photo moment. “That would be really cool, but I just got this new hobby,” Saweetie told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY while attending Audacy’s 8th annual “We Can Survive” benefit concert in Los Angeles on Oct. 23

“I’m now a cameraman. It’s really cool taking people’s pictures. I love being behind the camera, so I was actually taking a picture of her,” she added.

The hip hop artist first emerged on Instagram rapping in 2017, but hit it real big in the summer of 2020 after going viral on YouTube with her hit “My Type.” The cousin of actress Gabrielle Union, 48, has made her own name for herself. Launching songs such as “Best Friend” with Doja Cat, 26, “Tap In,” and “Fast (Motion” have earned her several award nominations and trophies.

Although photography is a hobby for Saweetie, she’s been helping out the Lakers’ owners for awhile now and has no plans of stopping! “I’m really cool with Linda and Jeanie Buss and Jordan,” Saweetie said. “They manage and run the Laker Organization, so sometimes I go to the Laker game and I take cool pictures for them. I’m a Tumblr girl! So I’ve always loved taking pictures, editing pictures, making people look cool.”

Don’t expect the camera to take away from Saweetie’s other creative outlet anytime soon, as she promises new music is on the horizon. “I’m working on Icy season!” Saweetie revealed. “I have some cool collaborations but it’ll come out before Pretty Bitch Season, so everybody should get ready for Icy season.”

There’s also one thing that Saweetie makes sure to do every single day to keep her head right, no matter what she has going on that day, whether it’s performing or taking photos of other celebrities. “I make sure I meditate because it makes me sane,” Saweetie said. “Whether it’s 20 minutes or 2 hours, but I meditate through lighting candles, drinking tea. Tea is where I get my super powers from. I love throat coat and I mix it in with ginger tea with lots and lots of honey.”

Lori Harvey slayed all day — or all night, rather — in a plaid suit with a modern twist for a night out in Southern California.

Lori Harvey put a new spin on an old classic. The 24-year old influencer wore a stunning plaid suit with a matching bikini top while treating herself to a seafood date night in Beverly Hills on Tuesday, October 12. The model looked amazing in the neutral toned outfit paired with see-through heels and a loose fitting up-do to seal off the sophisticated piece with a casual finish. The interesting outfit featured various cut-outs throughout the garment and looked positively amazing on the young model.

Lori, who ate solo dinner at Crustacean in the 90210, may have been without her boyfriend 34-year old Michael B. Jordan but she looked happier than ever spending some quality time alone. The two have been dating since 2020 but didn’t go public with their relationship until January 2021. The Emmy-nominated actor may be 10 years her senior but their relationship has been blessed by Lori’s famous dad, Steve Harvey. “I don’t speak publicly about this type of stuff, but I’m happy for my daughter right now. I really am,” the comedian, 64, confessed. “It’s the first time I’ve been happy for her [in a relationship]. And it’s the first time she’s been happy. He’s just a good guy. If he wasn’t, get him out of here, ’cause I have ways,” the Family Feud host continued. “But I can’t say nothing bad, man. He’s just got a great family, man. He’s a spiritual guy.”

Jennifer Lopez stuns in new behind-the-scenes photos from her fall campaign with Coach, rocking autumnal hues and a cozy fit.

Just call her J.Glow. Jennifer Lopez glows in behind-the-scenes snapshots from her Coach campaign. The singer, 52, shared photos from the shoot on Instagram on October 1, which featured her in a cozy autumnal fit: a brown Coach tracksuit paired with a fuzzy caramel sleeveless coat, hoop earrings, and, of course, a handbag from the luxury design house.

J.Lo is not the only famous face Coach has tapped for its fall campaign. Megan Thee Stallion, Michael B. Jordan, and Jeremy Lin also star, modeling cozy fits for the luxury brand. For Jennifer’s photoshoot, Coach released a coinciding segment on Friday that featured the star interviewing herself(s). Jennifer interviews J.Lo (and likewise) for the delightful piece.

“She’s had a lot of interviews in her life, but she’s never been interviewed by this person before,” Coach captioned the Instagram clip (seen below). The “duo” grilled each other on a series of topics, including Jennifer’s favorite song she has ever recorded and, of course, her infamous bling cups.

“First question: tell me you’re from the Bronx without telling me you’re from the Bronx,” Jennifer asked J.Lo, in which she responded by giving the finger with both hands. She also inquired about how many bling cups she actually had, to which J.Lo responded, “You don’t wanna know.” During the interview, Jennifer also revealed that she had a new album on the way, slated for a Valentine’s Day 2022 debut.

“I’ve just recorded a new album that is a new sound for me,” she said. A Valentine’s Day album debut certainly sounds romantic. On the topic of romance, the singer and her boyfriend Ben Affleck appear to be going strong after reconciling in May following their 2004 split. A source previously told HollywoodLife that the relationship is “much different this time around.”

“It’s already much different this time around and they both seem very happy,” the source said. “They’re both giving this relationship another very solid try and they’ve both made it clear they’re not taking any BS and taking this seriously.” In September, Bennifer 2.0 made their red carpet debut at the Venice Film Festival for the premiere of The Last Duel, which Ben stars in with pal Matt Damon, Jodie Comer, and Adam Driver.

Cardi B has opened up about how she’s doing emotionally, less than one month after giving birth to her second child, a baby boy.

Cardi B has admitted she’s been crying “for no reason” just a few weeks after welcoming a a baby boy with rapper Offset. She gave birth to her second child on September 4, and revealed she was still feeling the postpartum blues. “Can’t wait till these weird postpartum hormones completely leave my body,’ she tweeted on September 30. “I be crying for no reason.”

The “WAP” hitmaker also has a daughter named Kulture, 3, and is a step-mom to Offset’s children Kalea, 6, Kody, 6, and Jordan, 11. She opened up about the bond between her mini-me daughter and her step-siblings in an interview with Vogue in 2020. “When I was pregnant with Kulture, a lot of people [were] like, ‘Oh, he has three kids already; why would you have a kid with somebody that has three kids?’” she told the outlet.

“And it’s like, how is that such a bad thing? My dad has eight kids, and we all get along, and it feels better, fuller. And with Offset, I feel like his kids just bring a pop of fun to life when they’re in his house. I actually love it. It brings out a different side of him that I like to see, and I love to see my baby interacting with her siblings.” Back in 2018 when she gave birth to baby Kulture, Cardi opened up about her postpartum experience.

“Like, I[‘ve] been emotional all f**king day for no reason,” the “Rumors” singer wrote on Instagram at the time. “Let me tell you something. No matter how many books you read or advice I get, ya’ll never be read for mommy mode.” She later told Harper’s Bazaar, “When I gave birth, the doctor told me about postpartum, and I was like, ‘Well, I’m doing good right now, I don’t think that’s going to happen’ but out of nowhere, the world was heavy on my shoulders.” We can’t wait for Cardi to share more about her adorable baby boy — including his name!

Only the best for daddy’s little girl. In a recent interview, ‘Family Feud’ host Steve Harvey admits that he ‘approves’ of daughter Lori’s romance with Michael B. Jordan.

Lori Harvey, 24, has her stepdad’s approval! Her and Michael B. Jordan‘s romance is as strong as ever, especially now that her stepdad, Steve Harvey, 64 approves of the relationship. The famed comedian recently spoke to PEOPLE about his feelings on the actor dating his stepdaughter in an interview on September 20.

“I don’t speak publicly about this type of stuff, but I’m happy for my daughter right now. I really am,” the comedian, 64, confessed. “It’s the first time I’ve been happy for her [in a relationship]. And it’s the first time she’s been happy. He’s just a good guy. If he wasn’t, get him out of here, ’cause I have ways,” the Family Feud host continued. “But I can’t say nothing bad, man.

But, “he’s not the sexiest man alive to me, at all,” Steve joked, while referencing the title Michael was given in 2020. “I haven’t seen it. I haven’t seen anything sexy yet.” All jokes aside, Steve just wants the best for his daughter, as anyone would. “But I’m a father. I don’t give a damn if you [are] cute,” he continued. “I just want somebody to treat my princess the way I treat her.”

As of now, the lovebirds have been an item for almost a year now and show no signs of slowing down.

During her appearance on The Real season 8 premiere on Monday Sept. 20, she confirmed that the pairing is truly a romance for the ages! “We just really balance each other,” Lori told co-hosts Loni LoveAdrienne Bailon HoughtonJeannie Mai Jenkins, and Garcelle Beauvais. “I really do believe in the statement when they say, ‘when you know you know.’ And I think that really applies to our situation and we just have a really good time together,” she added.

It seems as if she is not the only one that is head over heels. In an interview with People in April, Michael spoke about why he decided to be public about his relationship with Lori, after keeping his personal life private for years. “I’m still private, and I want to protect that, but it just felt like it was a moment of just wanting to put it out there and move on,” he said. “I’m extremely happy.”

She accessorized with a small Hermès Kelly clutch bag in black with gold hardware in her left hand, hanging onto her iPhone with the right. Steve Harvey‘s stepdaughter kept her glam on point too, going with her usual brown-toned and bronzed makeup. Her skin looked illuminated under the camera flashes, which also caught a glimpse at her sleek cat liner, golden eye shadow, and ultra-glossy dark nude lip gloss. She opted to keep her hair in a high curled ponytail, allowing her drop silver chain-link earrings to dazzle.

Lori has been hitting some major career milestones as of late, which included some appearances at New York Fashion Week. The model slayed in a long brown gown with gunmetal chain details as she attended Revolve’s party with Dundas on Sept. 11, as well as the Revolve Gallery party where she cozied up to Adrienne Bailon and Megan Fox!

“KK first day,” the rapper captioned the post. For her first day, Kulture looked stylish in a white turtleneck and olive green coat and skirt set. The pièce de résistance? Her adorable Disney princess rolling backpack with Cinderella, Tiana, Belle, Aurora, and Jasmine.

Kulture’s big day comes after she became a big sister last week. Cardi, 28, gave birth to her second child, a baby boy, on September 4. Cardi shared the happy news on Instagram with a photo of her with her son and Offset on a hospital bed, covered in a Louis Vuitton blanket. “We are so overjoyed to finally meet our son,” the couple said in a statement issued to HollywoodLife. “He is already loved so much by family and friends and we can’t wait to introduce him to his other siblings.”

The baby boy is the second child for the couple, who wed in 2017, and the fifth overall for Offset. Earlier this week, the rapper shared a photo of himself holding his newborn as his wife rested from a nearby hospital bed. He captioned the post, “Chapter 5,” referencing his fifth child. He’s also dad to Kalea, 6, Kody, 6, and Jordan, 11, from previous relationships.

The “WAP” rapper appeared on stage for a performance with a surprise baby bump in tow while rocking a mesh catsuit covered in crystals all over, except her stomach. The Grammy winner announced her first pregnancy with Kulture in a similar fashion, emerging on stage as musical guest on Saturday Night Live in 2018 with a surprise bump.

Cardi B, 28, has given birth to a baby boy with Offset! She took to Instagram to share the happy news, simply caption the photo with “9/4/21.” Cardi and Offset looked so in love with their new bundle of joy in the rapper’s hospital bed, which included a luxe Louis Vuitton logo blanket.

“We are so overjoyed to finally meet our son. He is already loved so much by family and friends and we can’t wait to introduce him to his other siblings,” Cardi and Offset said in a statement via email to HollywoodLife. Offset also posted a sweet candid photo cuddling the baby boy. “Chapter 5,” he wrote in his caption.

The couple, who secretly wed in September 2017, also share daughter Kulture Kiari Cephus, 2, together. Cardi announced the news of her second pregnancy in the most marvelous way: on stage at the BET Awards on June 27, making her way onto the stage to perform her song “Type Sh*t” in a mesh catsuit that showed off her surprise baby bump. Post-performance, the rapper followed up with a series of elegant maternity shoots on Instagram.

In one, Kulture rubs her mom’s belly and wears a matching white flowy dress and head wrap as the rapper. In the caption, Cardi mused about the bond the two will inevitably form. “I just know these two will love each other soo much and argue soo much since they’re 3 years apart…just like me and Henny 😩,” she wrote, referencing her sister Hennessy Carolina. “But one thing for sure is they’ll have each other’s back like no one else ever will 🙏🏽🙏🏽.”

Hopefully, baby no. 2 proved to be a lot less painful. During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live in October 2018, the always candid rapper said her daughter Kulture “broke her vagina” during childbirth. “Why nobody tells you about those things? Nobody told me they were gonna stitch my vagina,” the rapper said. “People would just be like, ‘Oh, you know, when you give birth, it’s gonna hurt,’ but nobody tells you [about the] vagina.”

Along with Kulture and her newborn son (who’s name has yet to be confirmed), Cardi is also stepmom to Offset’s children Kalea, 6, Kody, 6, and Jordan, 11, whom he shares with previous partners. While on the Ellen DeGeneres Show in June, he revealed what a great stepparent the “Bodak Yellow” rapper is to his children. “My other kids who ain’t hers, [she] gives them love the same way, he said. “It’s a beautiful thing.”

Michael’s latest workout video comes less than a week after he made headlines for showing off his muscles in the trailer for his new military drama, A Journal For Jordan. The video included clips of him getting flirty with on-screen love interest Chanté Adams and him going shirtless while in a bedroom. The results of his disciplined fitness routine are clearly shown in the new flick and his acting abilities are greater than ever.

In addition to social media posts and movies, Michael sometimes shows off his fit body and charming good looks in ads. He wowed in a Coach ad alongside Jennifer Lopez just three weeks ago. In one of the campaign pics, he was standing outside while smiling and surrounded by others engaged in all sorts of activities. He wore various Coach clothing items, including a brown leather oversized aviator jacket with shearling lining, brown knit pants, black leather combat boots, and held the navy leather Hitch Backpack With Varsity Stripe.

After appearing in the campaign, Michael released a statement about how much he appreciated the concept of the pics. “The idea of being amongst friends means being around people you’re comfortable with,” he said. “People you can be yourself with, grow with, be creative with. It’s about being in an environment that makes you comfortable, where you can be authentic and thrive.”

The outing comes just one day after Katharine and David made headlines for taking their son out for another outing in Montecito, CA. They enjoyed lunch at a different place and were photographed sitting down and sharing a memorable moment with the baby boy. David was holding him and smiling while the former American Idol star looked over with her own big smile.

Katharine and David welcomed Rennie in Feb. after getting married in 2019. Although his birth made her a first-time mom, David already has five other children, including Jordan, 34, Erin, 38, and Sara, 40, who he had with ex-wife Rebecca Dyer, and Allison, 51, and Amy, 48, who he had during other previous partners.

Shortly after Rennie’s arrival, Katharine confirmed his gender on an episode of Tammin Sursok‘s Women On Top podcast. “Now that I am having a boy, there are different things I need to worry about to teach him versus the things I would be thinking about with a girl,” the new mom explained. “But it’s kind of refreshing because I feel like I don’t need to think about those societal ‘this is the way you look.’ I think men have different issues and different things to worry about.”

Not long after the arrival of baby Rennie, Katharine confirmed she and David welcomed a baby boy on an episode of Tammin Sursok‘s Women On Top podcast. “Now that I am having a boy, there are different things I need to worry about to teach him versus the things I would be thinking about with a girl,” Katharine said. “But it’s kind of refreshing because I feel like I don’t need to think about those societal ‘this is the way you look.’ I think men have different issues and different things to worry about.”

Katharine and her composer husband reside in Montecito, meaning they have some very famous neighbors: Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, who also recently welcomed their second child Lilibet Diana in June. Katharine recently told HollywoodLife exclusively that playdates with Lilibet and her older brother Archie Harrison, 2, are most definitely in the future. “We have limited play dates due to being cautious with all that is happening right now,” the actress told HL last month. “But playdates are a must in the future.”

Amari Bailey‘s name is in the headlines after his mom Johanna Leia went on a romantic dinner date at Dodgers Stadium with Drake. The model, 40, and the rapper, 34, sparked romance rumors on July 8 after he set up a sweet date night for the pair. Helicopter photos captured the duo enjoying dinner and drinks at a table on the baseball field. Johanna is also a mom to 17-year-old Amari, and seven-year-old daughter Savvy, whom she shares with former Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Aaron Bailey. Find out more about Amari!

Amari is a shooting guard and helped USA Basketball win a gold medal at the 2019 FIBA Americas U16 Championship, per his bio.

She also posted a video while at dinner with Michael on July 3, showing the Black Panther actor’s hand gently caressing her leg underneath the table.

“I’m still private, and I want to protect that, but it just felt like it was a moment of just wanting to put it out there and move on,” he told People. “I am extremely happy. I think when you get older, you feel more comfortable about the [public nature pf the business that we’re in,” he added. “So, for me, it was a moment to, I guess, take ownership of that and then get back to work.”

Michael also revealed he was taking “time” before having kids. During an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, he discussed a name tradition in his family, and his plans for his future children. “I am breaking that circle right there,” he said as the audience laughed. “It’s too much. The pressure I had to live up to my dad’s name and I’m not gonna put that on my kid … I’m gonna give him his own identity. He’s gotta walk in his own shoes.”

Kulture is so not having it in mom Cardi B’s hilarious new video.

This is a no pouting zone. Cardi B shared a new video on Instagram on July 1 that showed daughter Kulture, 2, sullen in an extravagant blue tutu. The “WAP” rapper, 28, responded accordingly: with laughter — and little Kulture was so not amused. Donned in a Cinderella-blue tutu and the cutest double pigtail buns, Kulture did her best to ignore her cackling mom, but eventually responded with an annoyed face.

Cardi captioned the post, “Type of my mom I am 🤣😂ion care if you mad gurrllll.” Talk about tough love.

The video comes after the rapper revealed that she and partner Offset are expecting baby no. 2 while at the BET Awards on June 27. Cardi emerged on stage for a performance of “Type Sh*t” with a surprise baby bump in tow. The rapper hasn’t shared much information about her due date or how far along she is, but on June 30, she shared a sweet video of baby no. 2 moving inside of her stomach on Instagram. In the video, Cardi’s bare stomach is exposed — and the movement inside is apparent, looking like a stomach grumble. The rapper responded with an “Oh my god!”

Prior to that, Cardi also shared a series of ethereal maternity shoots on Instagram. In one photo with Kulture, Cardi reflected on the type of big sister she would be. “I just know these two will love each other soo much and argue soo much since they’re 3 years apart…just like me and Henny,” she wrote, referencing her sister Hennessy Carolina. “But one thing for sure is they’ll have each other’s back like no one else ever will.”

Along with Kulture and baby no. 2, Cardi is also stepmom to Offset’s children Kalea, 6, Kody, 6, and Jordan, 11, from previous relationships.

Days after he and husband Adair Curtis welcomed a baby boy, OWN airs Jason’s comments about why he delayed fatherhood.

Fans of Styling Hollywood will know that one of the main themes of Season 1 of the Netflix series is Jason Bolden and his husband Adair Curtis butting heads on when they should start a family. Now, in the May 28 episode of Black Love, the 39-year-old celebrity stylist reveals why he was putting fatherhood on the backburner. And his comments will air four days after the couple’s little boy Arrow was born via a surrogate.

“We always knew that we wanted to be parents,” Jason says in the EXCLUSIVE preview clip obtained by HollywoodLife. “We always knew that that was going to be part of the picture that we decided to paint. It just got really tricky when it came to timing because there was a point in time where…Adair’s business is really busy and then there’s the moments when mine aren’t. And then just the past two years both of our businesses at the exact same time are soaring.”

Business is booming for Jason who is one of actress Gabrielle Union’s BFFs. His list of clients is impressively glitzy and long. He works with Michael B. Jordan and the actor’s girlfriend Lori Harvey, Grown-ish star Yara Shahidi, Storm Reid, Janet Mock, Taraji P. Henson and Alicia Keys, to name but a few.

At the same, his interior design husband Adair’s celeb clientele includes Gabrielle Union and her husband Dwyane Wade, and actress Sanaa Lathan. The couple united their talents in the form of their company JSN Studio. But while 40-year-old Adair was eager to start a family despite juggling their careers, Jason admits he was more hesitant.

“Adair is very much kind of like, ‘It’s fine. It’s fine.’ I’m the one on the other hand just kind of thinking, trying to be the ultimate parent. I want to make sure that I’m available, my child sees me, my child feels me, my child hears me,” Jason says in the clip. “But I was so concerned because I’m all over the planet and that became a really, really tough conversation to have all the time. And Adair got to the point where he was just like, ‘Well, look. I mean you said we’re going to do this and now’s the time.’

Auntie Gab and Uncle D on duty!!!! SO excited to welcome lil Arrow Fox into the village!! https://t.co/f0r457NzLc

— Gabrielle Union (@itsgabrielleu) May 26, 2021

“We’re lucky to be in a situation where we’re doing a surrogate situation so we have the opportunity to kind of time things. I was using that to my advantage. I was like, ‘Oh, I can just wait. Oh, wait. Hold on. Just joking. Not going to the doctor this week. Put something on my calendar.’ So I had the opportunity to do all that and then when Adair got hip to the game, he was like ‘Oh, I see what you doing.’”

When Adair and Jason announced on May 25 in mutual Instagram posts that they had finally entered the world of parenthood, Gabrielle Union was one of the first to celebrate the news. “Auntie Gab and Uncle D on duty!!!!” she tweeted. “SO excited to welcome lil Arrow Fox into the village!!”

‘Black Love’ airs on OWN on Fridays at 10pm/9pm Central. (Courtesy of OWN)

As fans of the Wades know, they used a surrogate to carry their 2-year-old daughter Kaavia. Jason and Adair frequently appear in social media posts playing with the little girl who inspired her parents’ new children’s book, Shady Baby. Black Love airs on OWN on Fridays at 10pm/9pm Central.

Michael B. Jordan and his girlfriend, Lori Harvey put on a loved-up display when they were spotted leaving Drake‘s Billboard Music Awards after party. The “God’s Plan” rapper, who was named artist of the decade at the May 23 ceremony, threw a star-studded bash after the awards show, and the actor, 33, and model, 24, were among the A-listers in attendance.

The brunette beauty, who is the step daughter of Steve Harvey, opted for an eclectic look including a black and white patterned crop top and animal print pants. She also carried a green handbag and styled her dark tresses in loose waves. Their PDA came just days after Michael hung out with Drake at a basketball game between the Los Angeles Lakers and Golden State Warriors.

The two stars sat beside each other during the May 19 clash, and fans couldn’t get enough. “I speak for everyone when I say. Drake and Michael B Jordan hanging out together should be illegal,” one person wrote on social media, while another said “good thing drake & michael b. jordan get along bc one husband just isn’t enough for me … Seeing Drake and Michael B celebrating after Bron hit the 3.”

The Canadian rapper, born Aubrey Graham, surprised fans when he brought his son Adonis with him to the 2021 Billboard Music Awards, and even brought the three-year-old on stage to help him accept his honor. “I want to dedicate this award to my friends, I want to dedicate this award to my longtime collaborators,” Drake began. “I want to dedicate this award to all my peers, all your decisions, and the music you make really does have me tossing and turning at night trying to figure out what I should do next.

Michael B. Jordan is showing off his buff body in new photos from St. Bart’s, where he previously vacationed with GF Lori Harvey.

Michael B. Jordan is back in St. Bart’s, but unlike his Jan. 2021 yachting getaway there with girlfriend Lori Harvey, 24, this time it was all about business. But what a gorgeous workplace setting the Black Panther star had, as he was doing a photoshoot for Men’s Health on the Caribbean island. In an Apr. 16 Instagram photo, he showed why the magazine would want to do a piece on him, as the 34-year-old shared a snapshot of himself shirtless and looking so sexy while emerging from a pool.

Michael used the shot to thank Airbnb for comping his lux accommodations in St. Bart’s. His hillside villa overlooked the turquoise water in the distance, as well as other homes in the bay. The Creed star wore a pair of light blue trunks as he grabbed the metal railings on the pool ladder. Michael’s ripped abs, perfect pecs and bulging biceps were on display in the shirtless photo, as the mustachioed star gave a steely look off camera.

Michael included two videos that followed, with one showing a gorgeous 180 view from the pool at sunset. He swung his camera across the mountains and the small bay his home was situated in with the open sea beyond it. In another video, he showed what his morning breakfast view looked like as he at a plate of scrambled eggs and a glass of orange juice. The gorgeous pool was right in front of his floor to ceiling dining room window, with the bay and swaying palm fronds beyond it.

“Thanks @airbnb for comping the crib in St. Barths for my Men’s Health Shoot. The host took care of me & the crew & made the trip one to remember,” the 2020 Sexiest Man Alive wrote in the caption. But his celebrity friends and fans were giving him thanks for the shirtless pool photo. Michael’s girlfriend of nearly six months Lori left a series of smiling emojis with hearts for eyes. His Black Panther co-star Lupita Nyong’o gushed, “Yes please!” in the comments. Actor Jamie Foxx called the post and the accommodations, “King S#%t. Well deserved.”

Michael B. Jordan’s girlfriend Lori Harvey showed her appreciation for his shirtless IG photo.

Michael was last in St. Bart’s in Jan. 2021, while on vacation with Lori, her mom Marjorie and her step dad, Family Feud host Steve Harvey. He has the 64-year-old comedian’s stamp of approval, as Michael was at Lori’s family’s 24th birthday festivities for her on Jan. 13 at a Utah ski resort, then the couple and her parents headed to St. Barts to get out of the snow and into the tropical sunshine. The couple packed on plenty of PDA while aboard the yacht, and from Lori’s flirty message in the comments of his new post, things are still going strong for the insanely good looking couple.
