Cuba Gooding Jr. has pleaded guilty to one count of forcible touching three years after he was accused of violating three different women at NYC nightclubs in 2018 and 2019.

Jerry Maguire star Cuba Gooding Jr., 54, pleaded guilty to one count of forcible touching in a criminal case on April 13, nearly three years after he was accused of violating three different women at various NYC nightspots in 2018 and 2019, according to Variety. The single guilty plea comes after Cuba’s 2019 arrest in the case that went through several delays, as his lawyers fought to get the charges reduced or dropped altogether. The case had previously been scheduled to go to trial at least twice, but a surge in COVID-19 cases in April 2020 caused most court cases to get delayed.

Cuba was arrested in June 2019, after a 29-year-old woman claimed he squeezed her breast without her consent at Magic Hour Rooftop Bar & Lounge near Times Square. Then, just a few months later, he was charged in two more cases as more women came forward, accusing him of abuse. One charge alleged he pinched a woman’s butt after making a sexually suggestive remark to her at TAO Downtown, and another claimed he forcibly touched a woman inappropriately at the LAVO New York nightclub — both incidents allegedly occurred in 2018.

Cuba pleaded guilty to the LAVO nightclub allegation. Page Six claims the actor took this plea deal so he could stay out of jail and keep working. A source further told the outlet that he’ll have to apologize to two women he was accused of groping. HollywoodLife has reached out to Cuba’s rep and lawyer for a statement.

Prior to this guilty plea, Cuba had pleaded not guilty to six misdemeanor counts and denied all allegations of wrongdoing. The actor’s lawyers tried arguing that “overzealous prosecutors, caught up in the fervor of the #MeToo movement” tried to turn “commonplace gestures” or misunderstandings into crimes, according to WKBN 27. However, the judge in the case ruled that if there ended up being a trial, prosecutors could have called two additional women to testify about their own allegations, in which they claimed Cuba also violated them. Those claims did not end up resulting in criminal charges, but they were among 19 other accusers who prosecutors were working to call as witnesses, according to The New York Times.

Aside from this criminal case, Cuba is facing another lawsuit from August 2020, in which he was accused of raping a woman in NYC in 2013. He’s currently fighting that allegation.

Cuba, who won the Oscar for supporting actor in 1996 after co-starring in Jerry Maguire with Tom Cruise, has also starred in Boyz n the Hood, Men of Honor, Pearl Harbor and more. He also played O.J. Simpson in The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story in 2016.

Chris Brown’s had a very high-profile love life. From his relationship with Rihanna, to welcoming children with three different women, take a look back at the singer’s romantic history.

Since catapulting into the spotlight at such a young age, Chris Brown‘s personal life has been front and center. The young R&B singer’s love life has really taken center stage. From scrutiny over his relationship with Rihanna to welcoming three children all from different relationships, Chris’s personal life has become a topic of conversation amongst his devoted fans. Now, we’re taking a look back at the women he dated.

Rihanna

Chris Brown & Rihanna backstage at the 2005 Z-100 Jingle Ball held at Madison Square Garden in New York City on December 17, 2005 [AP].Between 2007 and 2009, Chris was in a high-profile relationship with Rihanna. The two singer’s started out merely as friends in the mid-2000s before their platonic relationship blossomed into a romance. The couple’s romantic partnership was further scrutinized in February 2009, when Chris physically assaulted Rihanna following an argument that escalated into a physical altercation.

By June 2009, Chris pleaded guilty to a felony assault months after images of Rihanna’s beaten face surfaed. He was ordered to serve community labor, five years probation and submit to domestic violence counseling. Four years after the assault, Rihanna and Chris got back together in early 2013. By May 2013, however, the two went their separate ways.

Both Chris and Rihanna have spoken in detail about their relationship in the past, a romance that has become a pivotal point in Rihanna’s personal life and practically redefined Chris’s career trajectory. Rihanna, notably, opened up to Oprah Winfrey about their romance in 2012. “We love each other and we probably always will. That’s not anything that we’re going to try to change. That’s not something you can shut off if you’ve ever been in love,” she shared on the mogul’s Next Chapter series on OWN.

“I truly love him,” she concluded. “The main thing for me is that he is at peace. I’m not at peace if he’s a little unhappy or he’s still lonely. I care. It actually matters that he finds that peace.”

Karrueche Tran 

Chris Brown and Karrueche Tran at Jhene Aiko’s Private EP Release Party hosted by Hennessy V.S, on November 14, 2013 in Los Angeles [AP].During his initial breakup with Rihanna, Chris began dating model Karrueche Tran in 2011. By October 2012, however, the two went their separate ways. After Chris’s rekindled relationship with Rihanna didn’t work out, he reunited with Karrueche. But the couple’s relationship became more and more troubled.

As the pair seemingly tried to rebuild their romance, circumstances became far more worrisome. Karrueche and Chris eventually split after news of Chris’s child with Nia Guzman became public in 2015. Even more startling, Karrueche alleged that Chris was threatening her with violence. She subsequently was granted a five-year restraining order from Chris in 2017.

Years after their split, Karrueche shared EXCLUSIVELY with HollywoodLife that her life was back on track. “It is amazing to think where I was four years ago to where I am now and it pushes me to want to do more and become better and the long term goal for me is acting and getting on the big screen,” she shared with HL in May 2019. “I feel like I am the rose that grew from concrete, it’s that little bud that starts and keeps growing and growing and you learn that the world is your oyster and you can continue to grow with staying focused and hard work!”

Nia Guzman

Nia Guzman and Chris Brown share their daughter, Royalty, who was born in May 2014 [AP].One of Chris’s least publicized relationships was with Nia Guzman. The two weren’t exactly together for very long, but during their time together they welcomed a daughter, seven-year-old Royalty Brown. Royalty was born in May 2014, but news of Chris’s firstborn didn’t become public until the singer learned that he was the father in 2015, when the singer had reunited with Karrueche.

Over the years, Chris and Nia’s co-parenting has been difficult. In 2018, the two had an intense legal squabble over child support for their little girl. But in the years since, the parents have seemingly reached an agreement. “Chris gets along great with Nia because they decided a long time ago to make things work for the sake of Royalty,” a source shared EXCLUSIVELY with HollywoodLife in March 2020. For the young father, Royalty is “the most important girl in his life and he is willing to do whatever it takes to show her how much her parents love her and that she sees how well they get along.”

Agnez Mo

Chris Brown and Agnez Mo were linked between 2017 and 2018 [SplashNews].Between 2017 and 2018, Chris was rumored to be linked to Agnez Mo. The two initially got cozy in September 2017. After they first met, flirty messages exchanged between the two piqued fans interest. By November 2017, Chris and Agnez really riled-up fans when photos of the pair snuggling in the recording studio went public. The last sighting of the two came in January 2018, when they were spotted on a cute date at Disneyland. The romance apparently didn’t last long, and the two singers subsequently went their separate ways.

Ammika Harris

Chris Brown and Ammika Harris seen in Paris in January 2019 [BACKGRID].Chris’s had a talked-about romance with Ammika Harris. Rumors about the two being an item swirled throughout 2019. But by late November of that year, fans knew that the one-time couple were definitely serious at one point during their romance. The two welcomed their sonAeko, on November 20 of that year.

Since bringing their little boy into the world, Ammika and Chris’s lives have been completely upended by the COVID-19 pandemic, which hit just months after little Aeko’s birth. Ammika went back to Europe to continue her modeling work, bringing Aeko with her. Chris, however, remained in the United States. Fortunately he was able to reunite with Ammika and Aeko in London before the family went on a vacation to Tulum, Mexico, in November 2020.

As for where Chris and Ammika currently stand, a source shared EXCLUSIVELY with HL that the two are just figuring their status out. “Chris and Ammika haven’t put an official label on where things stand with them right now because they’re still trying to figure out what their next move is,” the source shared. “They know the love is there and they’ll always be in each other’s lives, obviously, but there are so many variables at this point and everything is still up in the air.”

Diamond Brown

Chris was first linked to Diamond Brown in June 2019, when he “liked” one of the young model’s IG posts while Ammika was pregnant with his son. Diamond had also attended the “Forever” singer’s 30th birthday party in May 2019. Diamond revealed she was pregnant in September 2021, and fans quickly surmised that Chris was the baby’s father. In the comments section of Diamond’s Nov. 24 Instagram post, one follower said, “baby breezy is almost here.” A different fan wrote, “Young CB coming soon,” while a third person tagged Chris and congratulated him in the comment section, sharing a baby bottle and teddy bear emoji.

Diamond gave birth to a daughter, Lovely Brown, in January 2022. It wasn’t until April 2022, when Lovely was three months old, that Chris confirmed he was indeed the father of Diamond’s child. The superstar singer posted a photo of his baby girl to his Instagram Story and wrote several heart emojis. It marked the first time Chris publicly acknowledged the baby.

Ahead of her new memoir, ‘Chaos Theory,’ Leah McSweeney stopped in to chat with HL about the ‘RHONY’ shows coming to Bravo and if she’s returning to our screens.

On March 23, the future of The Real Housewives of New York City was revealed when Andy Cohen shared with Variety that producers decided to split the franchise into two shows: one reboot of the series with a brand new cast and one focusing on former stars. After fans spun into a flurry, wondering who might be asked back for the “legacy” series and who may lead the reboot, we at HollywoodLife wanted to touch on those details with Season 12 & 13 cast member Leah McSweeney.

While promoting her new book, Chaos Theory, which chronicles the magical “chaos” of her life growing up in the NYC club scene to starting her own business to joining RHONY, Leah spoke EXCLUSIVELY with HL on our Pay Attention Puh-Lease! podcast about her time on the show and what may come next.

HL: How did you learn the news about the show and what was your first reaction to it? 

Leah: You know I knew about the news right before it came out, I think they kind of did that with all of us. I was kind of like, ‘What?’ and then I was like, ‘Okay…’ I was like, ‘What is that?’ I was confused. I don’t know, I just didn’t have many feelings about it. I’m kind of like, okay, I think it’s a good idea and I’m interested to see what that looks like.

HL: I feel like you could almost star on either one if they decide to reboot with either you or Eboni [Williams] or both and some of your genuine friends or you could be on the legacy show. Have you been approached about either? 

Leah: I mean I of course can’t divulge anything like that. Which show do you think I should be on?

HL: I feel like either or! But I like that you brought this downtown [vibe]. I really like being able to see that side of New York. I think you represent this different kind of shift I think a lot of viewers would really like to see. 

Leah: Maybe.

HL: There was such a positive strong reaction when you came on last season. You were a huge fan favorite. I would love you to see continue with it so you could keep the lineage going in a way, so it’s still rebooted but you’re still there. However we can get you back we’ll take it! 

Leah: Yeah [laughs].

HL: Who do you think should be a part of the legacy cast? 

Leah: Well Dorinda [Medley]‘s gotta come back! I think Sonja Morgan, Luann de Lesseps, Ramona Singer, and then I want Dorinda to come because I wanna see her bite Ramona’s head off! I think Jill Zarin you have to bring back because … I feel so bad for her, it’s like she wants to be back so badly. It’s like please let this woman back on the show again! And also it’s like, let’s see what she’s made of. There’s Kelly Bensimon [too].

HL: I would like to see Bethenny [Frankel] back. 

Leah: You know what that didn’t even come into my mind because I think it’s such a non-[thing] that I didn’t even think about it.

HL: Do you keep in touch with any of the RHONY women? 

Leah: Dorinda, Tinsley, LuAnn.

HL: Considering Tinsley, you guys had a good friendship on the show and obviously her and Scott broke up. Has she moved back to New York City, do you know if she’d be into coming back to one of the shows? 

Leah: I don’t know, I can’t speak for her. [Laughs] You’re not gonna get too much out of me that I can’t say!

Justin Timberlake has more to say to Britney Spears, following his public apology after the release of ‘Framing Britney Spears’ in February — when he took to Instagram to say that he was “deeply sorry” for the way he handled their messy split in 2002.

Justin Timberlake, 40, has been radio silent since his ex, Britney Spears, 39, was freed from the conservatorship that she was locked in for 13 years and he is apparently ready to break that silence — but not on Twitter, or on Instagram, like he did in the past. “Justin loves to see that Britney is now living the life that she wanted for so long. He loves seeing her embrace all the good that will come from her being out of this conservatorship. Justin would love to talk to Britney if Britney wanted to talk to him,” a source close to the “Sexy Back” singer told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY, adding, “But he also does not want to get in the way of the life she is seeking.”

On June 23, 2021, Britney spoke out about her former conservatorship for the first time in an explosive 23-minute testimony, in which she asked Los Angeles court Judge Brenda Penny to end her conservatorship, stating that it was “abusive” and that her father Jamie Spears, 69, should be sent to “jail” for his part in it. Following the testimony, Justin — who dated Britney for several years until they split in 2002 — took to Twitter to give his thoughts, saying, “After what we saw today, we should all be supporting Britney at this time. Regardless of our past, good and bad, and no matter how long ago it was… what’s happening to her is just not right. No woman should ever be restricted from making decisions about her own body. Jess and I send our love, and our absolute support to Britney during this time. We hope the courts, and her family make this right and let her live however she wants to live.”

But this was not the first time that Justin gave his thoughts on his ex and their relationship. In February 2021, the documentary Framing Britney Spears was released, which shed light on the entire situation and exposed her father and his associates for their alleged wrongdoings. The documentary also took a swing at Justin for leaking that “Britney wasn’t a virgin” after their messy breakup in 2002. In an Instagram post, Justin wrote, “I’ve seen the messages, tags, comments, and concerns and I want to respond. I am deeply sorry for the times in my life where my actions contributed to the problem, where I spoke out of turn, or did not speak up for what was right. I specifically want to apologize to Britney Spears and Janet Jackson both individually, because I care for and respect these women and I know I failed.”

“Justin is very secure that Britney has heard his apology and he hopes that she knows that if she needed him in any way, he would gladly help out in any way that he could. Justin hasn’t reached out to her personally, yet,” the source said. “But again, he is not at all discouraged not to. It is just important for Justin is that he comes across as genuine because this is his true intentions. If Britney needs any type of talk, he is glad to do it and he is even more prone to do it behind closed doors,” the insider told HollywoodLife. “Justin wants whatever needs to be said and done kept private. He has her back from a far right now but that could easily change if and when Britney needs anything more.”

HollywoodLife reached out to a rep for Justin for comment, but we have not heard back yet.

Kim Kardashian’s whirlwind romance with Pete Davidson is heating up — and it’s not just because the two spent his birthday in balmy Palm Springs!

Kim Kardashian, 41, and Pete Davidson, 28, were spotted flaunting some serious PDA this week while in Palm Springs, California, where the two celebrated Pete’s 28th birthday at Kris Jenner‘s desert home. And as speculation continues to grow as to what is really going on, a source told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY what the true status of their relationship is. “They are not super serious like, ‘you are my girlfriend’ and ‘you are my boyfriend,’ but because they have really strong feelings for each other, they are not looking to date anyone else right now,” the source revealed.

On Pete’s birthday, Nov. 16,  the world held its breath, waiting to see Kim pop up in New York City — where they were spotted on two romantic dinner dates together the week before. The following day, on Nov. 17, Flavor Flave, 62, broke the internet by sharing a photo on his Instagram, posing with the two, as well as momager Kris, 66. In the caption, Flavor wrote, “celebrating my adopted son Pete Davidson’s birthday wit the legendz @kimkardashian and @krisjenner 🥳🎂🎊👑⏰ Pete,,, I never took a clock off my neck to give to someone and you will be the last person I do this for,,, it lookz real good on you,,,, happy birthday,,,,”

According to the source, “Palm Springs was exactly what they needed to know how much they are really into each other. Neither of them want to be with anyone else right now, but that does not mean that they are completely exclusive and locked into a monogamous relationship,” the source said, adding, “They know that they like each other and that they click on a physical and emotional level.” After photos surfaced the following day of Pete and Kim holding hands in a Palm Springs parking lot, HollywoodLife learned that they were not there for very long.

“They were in Palm Springs for just over 24 hours. He is back in New York City right now and she is back in Los Angeles,” the source said. Although it is anyone’s guess where they will be seen together next, it is clear that they aren’t putting the breaks on anything just yet. “Kim really needs laughter in her life right now and has incredibly strong feelings for Pete. She needs to have some fun. Things have been heavy in her life with the divorce and everything. She wants something very different than what she had with Kanye,” a source told HollywoodLife on Nov. 18. “Kim is taking things one day at a time. She’s having a blast with Pete and plans on continuing to see him.”

Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid have fallen in love and started a family right before fans’ eyes. Now, we’re taking a look back at their romance from the very beginning.

Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik have somehow managed to have a longtime, flourishing relationship despite so much scrutiny. The couple has weathered breakups and rumors, early pregnancy reports, and, more recently family drama with her mother Yolanda Hadid. Look back at the couple’s lengthy romantic history, including their breakups and makeups.

Dating Rumors Swirl

Model Gigi Hadid and singer Zayn Malik are seen on March 26, 2016 in New York City [SplashNews].Zayn and Gigi’s romance all started when rumors began to swirl in November 2015 shortly after the model broke things off with Joe Jonas. They were first seen leaving in a car together after Justin Bieber‘s American Music Awards after party and their smiles to each other hinted at a developing relationship. A few days later, Zayn sparked even more rumors when he posted a photo of himself wearing what looked like Gigi’s glasses on his Instagram. By the end of the month, they pretty much confirmed their new romance when they were seen adorably holding hands while leaving The Nice Guy restaurant in L.A.

Going Steady

Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid at the ‘Manus x Machina: Fashion In An Age Of Technology’ Costume Institute Gala at Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 2, 2016 in New York City [AP].The couple seemed absolutely smitten with each other throughout late 2015 and 2016. Between social media posts and sightings out and about, the two kept their relationship fairly low-key, but were never shy about showing fans how much they adored one another. One of their most memorable outings was at the May 2016 Met Gala. The pair shared a few tender moments on the arrival carpet, and looked so in love.

Wading Through Breakup Rumors

Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik look in love as they stroll around New York hand in hand. The couple were seen leaving their Manhattan apartment just days after Gigi celebrated turning 22 in April 2017 [MEGA].Despite proving time and again how much they adored one another, Zayn and Gigi still had to wade through their share of breakup rumors. Fortunately, the couple continued to share sweet social media posts from trips together, Halloween, and more. 2017 was a memorable year for the couple, who proved that they were going strong and absolutely silenced haters.

The Breakup

Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik seen wearing matching all black as they heading out to celebrate the singer’s 25th birthday in New York City [MEGA].Despite what appeared to be a flourishing romance, Zayn and Gigi were unable to maintain their relationship. In March 2018, Zayn took to Twitter to let his fans know that the couple had called it quits. “Gigi and I had an incredibly meaningful, loving and fun relationship and I have a huge amount of respect and adoration for Gigi as a woman and friend,” Zayn’s post on Twitter read. “She has such an incredible soul. I’m grateful to all of our fans for respecting this difficult decision and our privacy at this time. We wish this new could have come from us first. We love you all.”

Together Again

The two appeared to post images of one another on social media, but never really confirmed their romance. In fact, in June of that year, Gigi shared a PDA photo of the couple on her Instagram Stories without addressing the status of their relationship.

More Breakup Rumors & Rekindling

Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik surprise the world with their reconciliation for his birthday as they step out to IL Buco with Bella Hadid and Dua Lipa. They were all smiles during the outing. feb 11, 2020 [BACKGRID].Although all signs pointed to Gigi and Zayn being back together, the relationship was still called into question in January 2019. This time around, fans really thought that the couple was done for good. But as months went by, there were still signs that Zayn was still in love with Gigi. By this point, Gigi was beginning a relationship with Bachelorette alum Tyler Cameron. But after Tyler and Gigi officially called it quits, the door opened once again for Gigi and Zayn to reconnect.

By the autumn and winter of 2019, it looked like Gigi and Zayn were back together…again. The couple never outrightly confirmed their romance. By January 2020, there were more signs that the two were dating once again when they were spotted around New York City and even seen wrapping their arms around one another. On Valentine’s Day 2020, Gigi finally confirmed that the two were indeed back on. With the two going steady, the couple’s biggest announcement was yet to come.

Gigi Announces She’s Pregnant

After reports and fan speculation circulated following Gigi’s 25th birthday that the young model was expecting her first child, she finally confirmed the news! “Obviously, we wished we could have announced it on our own terms, but we’re very excited and happy and grateful for everyone’s well-wishes and support,” Gigi shared during her appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. “It’s a nice silver lining to be able to be home and be together and really experience it day by day.”

From that moment on, Gigi and Zayn essentially hid themselves from photographers. The couple rarely posted on social media, and it wasn’t until after Gigi gave birth that she shared images from different points in her pregnancy. Although, there were a few snapshots that fans simply fawned over, including one with her younger sister Bella Hadid. At this point, the couple also moved into an apartment in New York City, their first family home!

Near the end of September, Gigi and Zayn officially embarked on a brand new chapter! The couple welcomed their precious baby girl and they were absolutely ecstatic to share the news with their legions of fans and supporters. Of course, the couple disclosed that they had actually welcomed their daughter just about a week before their announcement, and enjoyed some privacy before sharing the news. Since then, the newly-minted parents have made a concerted effort to maintain their daughter’s privacy and not expose her to the world.

Going Strong Into 2021

If welcoming their daughter in the fall of 2020 opened up a new chapter for the two, then 2021 was an official fresh start for the longtime couple. Zayn and Gigi quietly celebrated the singer’s birthday in January, and have shown no signs of calling it quits anytime soon. Fans are so happy to see Gigi and Zayn going strong, and we cannot wait to see their romance continue to flourish!

Zayn Denies ‘Striking’ Gigi’s Mother Yolanda

On Oct. 28, it was reported that Zayn allegedly ‘struck’ Gigi’s mother, Yolanda Hadid, per TMZ. The singer, however, released a statement denying the claim.

“I adamantly deny striking Yolanda Hadid and for the sake of my daughter I decline to give any further details and I hope that Yolanda will reconsider her false allegations and move towards healing these family issues in private,” he said in a statement to the news outlet.

He also issued a statement on social media. “As you all know I am a private person and I very much want to create a safe and private space for my daughter to grow up in. A place where private family matters aren’t thrown on the world stage for all to poke and pick apart,” the former One Direction singer penned. “In an effort to protect that space for her I agreed to not contest claims arising from an argument with a family member of my partner’s who entered our home while my partner was away several weeks ago.”

“This was and still should be a private matter but it seems for now there is divisiveness and despite my efforts to restore us to a peaceful family environment that will allow for me to co-parent my daughter in a manner in which she deserves, this has been ‘leaked’ to the press,” he added. “I am hopeful though for healing for all involved with the harsh words shared and more importantly I remain vigilant to protect Khai and give her the privacy she deserves.”

Sad news for ‘Real Housewives of Orange County’ alum Vicki Gunvalson, as a new report claims she and longtime partner Steve Lodge have broken up.

Former Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson, 59, and fiancé Steve Lodge have ended their two-year engagement, according to a new report by E! News. “Steve ended things with Vicki,” a source told the news outlet.

Apparently, Vicki first broke up with Steve in June before they tried reconciling — but as this new report claims, they soon figured out that they’re better off apart. “Steve and Vicki had been living separately for much of the pandemic. Steve had been living like he was a single man in Puerto Vallarta, while Vicki was in the U.S.,” the source explained. HollywoodLife reached out to Vicki and Steve’s reps for comment, but we didn’t receive immediate responses.

Vicki met Steve at a Boys & Girls Club charity event that was filmed for RHOC, before she left the series in January 2020, following 14 seasons on the show. Steve proposed to Vicki in April 2019, and they planned to get married.

And even though Vicki’s love tank is no longer full, the mother of two recently wrapped filming on Peacock’s upcoming Real Housewives all stars special, so she has a lot going for her right now.

Prior to Steve, and following her divorce from Donn, Vicki dated businessman Brooks Ayers. Their controversial four-year relationship, as well as a possible cancer scam that was concocted by them, was well documented on RHOC.

Taylor Swift took some time to address ‘a very pressing issue,’ following her longtime fans’ requests to know where the singer’s beloved cat, Meredith, has been! See her video.  

Mystery solved! Taylor Swift‘s beloved cat, Meredith, made a triumphant return to the singer’s social media in a brand new video — well, sort of. Fans of the folklore songstress, 31, have always been expert detectives and decoders when it comes to spotting Easter Eggs in her songs, music videos, and social media. But even the most eagle-eyed Swiftie couldn’t figure out why Meredith hadn’t been in any social media posts from the star. So, naturally, Taylor intervened and explained what was going on with Meredith in her April 16 video post to Instagram.

“We’ve been hearing some rumors on the internet, recently…I mean, they’re not about you, Benj, but they’re about your sister,” Taylor began her video, while holding her catBenjamin Button. Taylor then shared a slew of messages she’d seen from fans asking “girl, where is Meredith?” One fan even wrote a statement that read, “I’m getting worried for Meredith, we haven’t seen her in a while.”

Then Taylor shared text to her video, which read, “The truth is, Meredith just HATES having her picture taken.” What followed was a series of snapshots the “Lover” singer captured that featured Meredith in compromising positions — clearly, she was not ready for the paw-parazzi. After the series of photos ended, Taylor returned with a final word to her fans.

Mendel purse, and ankle boots, and her kitten, Meredith, head out for the day in Tribeca in New York City on March 29, 2014 [SplashNews].“So, yea. There it is, there you have it. That’s the explanation. She’s just a really private little cat,” Taylor said. “She likes her business kept to herself; she doesn’t like a camera shoved in her face and who can blame her. So, there’s your update on Meredith,” Taylor said, before footage of Meredith scurrying away from the camera appeared. “So do you have any comment on the recent allegations that you’re a missing cat?” Taylor’s voice could be heard saying.

Along with the video, Taylor also captioned the clip, and thanked her many fans for getting her album Fearless (Taylor’s Version) back to the top of the charts! “WELL WELL WELL you all really went out and left my greatest expectations in shambles this week,” she began the caption. “Word on the street is you made Fearless (my version) the biggest country album first week of the last 6 years and the top release of 2021 so far. Honestly??? How?? Did I get this lucky???? I wanted to say thank you to you so today I will be addressing a very pressing issue,” she said, teasing the video. Fans are surely happy to know that sweet little Meredith is doing a-ok! Now, back to listening to “Mr. Perfectly Fine.”

Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi was seen seemingly filming with former co-star Angelina Pivarnick, as the two ladies dined out in New Jersey. See the photo of the women out together!

It looks like there might be a surprise in store for fans of Jersey Shore! Former MTV star Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi was spotted out with Angelina Pivarnick on March 1 at Lucco Cucina + Bar in Florham Park, New Jersey, according to a new photo obtained by TMZ. In the image, Nicole and Angelina can be seen having a chat with one another while cameras were rolling, leading many to believe that Nicole might be returning to the show more than a year after she officially left the reality TV series!

Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi seen out with Angelina Pivarnick [TMZ].It’s not known whether Nicole will be a series regular, or simply make guest appearances in the show. Nicole, known to many a millennial as ‘Snooki,’ announced in December 2019 that she’d made the decision to leave Jersey Shore. “I think when I was, like, actually forcing myself to be in a situation that I wasn’t happy in. Like, I was forcing myself to be happy, and I’m like, ‘That’s not me. I’m not genuinely happy.’ That’s when I’m like, ‘I’m out,’” Nicole shared during an interview on The Mel Robbins Show

There was a lot of care and thought that went into Nicole’s decision, though, especially her focus on her family — husband Jionni LaValle and their three children, Lorenzo, 8, Giovanna, 6, and Angelo, 1. “I just can’t do it anymore. Literally, leaving my kids to film it is really hard on me,” she continued. “I try and quit every single day. I just hate being away from the kids.”

Pictured: Pauly D DelVecchio, Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi, Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino, Jenni JWoww Farley, Vinny Guadagnino,Deena Nicole Cortese, Angelina Pivarnick[MEGA].It’s also worth noting how interesting it is that Nicole is out with Angelina. The two notoriously had some intense clashes, some of which may have stemmed from rumors that circulated about Angelina making out with JWoww‘s [Jenni Farley’s] boyfriend in Las Vegas. After Angelina’s wedding, circumstances didn’t seem to improve between the two. Perhaps the reality TV stars are ready to bury the hatchet? Only time will tell.

Nicole rose to fame on the hit MTV reality series when it debuted on the network in 2009. Long after the original show end in the early 2010s, Nicole reunited with her cast member in 2018 for the series Jersey Shore: Family Vacation. She abruptly left just before the final batch of episodes for the third season were about to premiere in early 2020.

Celebrity Breakups In 2021: The Biggest Splits

Celebrity Breakups In 2021: The Biggest Splits

News Writer

2021 has hardly begun and already a number of celebs are calling it quits on their relationships. Take a look at the stars who broke up in 2021, from Kim Kardashian and Kanye West to so many more.

We’ve barely finished the month of February, and already a number of celebs are entering the new year with a different relationship status: single. That’s right, despite high hopes and seemingly strong bonds, a number of celebrity couples have decided to call it quits this year. Let’s take a look at the list of celebs who have called their romances off.

Kim Kardashian & Kanye West

[Photo credit: AP]The Kimye era officially ended on February 19, 2021, when Kim Kardashian filed for divorce from Kanye West. HollywoodLife confirmed the news with multiple sources, though TMZ was first to report the news. The outlet reported that the couple’s divorce is very “amicable” and that there is a prenup involved. Kim and Kanye reportedly negotiated a joint custody situation with their four kids: daughters North, 7, and Chicago, 3, and sons Saint, 5, and Psalm, 1. Kim filed for divorce just three months shy of the couple’s 7th wedding anniversary on May 24.

Clare Crawley & Dale Moss

Clare Crawley became engaged to Dale Moss on the 16th season of ‘The Bachelorette.’ They went their separate ways in mid-January 2021 [ABC].This former Bachelor Nation favorite didn’t have to clarify much after she accepted a proposal on her season of The Bachelorette. Clare Crawley was clearly head over heals in love with her choice, Dale Moss, by the conclusion of her portion of The Bachelorette season 16. After the shocking mid-season finale, Clare accepted Dale’s proposal and the two went Instagram official, appearing so loved-up all over their social media accounts.

Sadly, Dale confirmed the breakup after only mere months together. “I wanted to share with you all that Clare and I have decided to go our separate ways,” Dale wrote in a January 19 Instagram post. “We appreciate the love and support we’ve received from so many people, but this is the healthiest decision for both of us at this time. We strongly believe in leading with love and always remaining true to oneself — something our families have taught and instilled in us throughout our lives. We only hope the best things for one another.”

Clare finally broke her silence just two days later, admitting how shocked she was that the two did not last. “I was made aware of a ‘mutual’ statement at the same time you all were, so I’ve needed some time to really digest this,” Clare wrote on Instagram on January 21, referring to the supposed joint statement that Dale had made on his and Clare’s behalf.

“Speaking for myself, my intentions with this relationship have always been very clear, so the truth is, I am crushed,” she continued. “This was not what Ie expected or hoped for and I am still trying to process this. 2020 was one hell of a year, with COVID, balancing a new public relationship, all while slowly losing my mother. It hasn’t been ideal circumstances, but that is life right? I have been looking forward to the light at the end of the tunnel. Our relationship was not perfect, but I can say that I was genuinely invested with all of my heart. I may not have all the answers, but I do know this — I will continue to show up, stand by my word and be committed to love.”

Ben Affleck & Ana de Armas

Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas were together for 10 months before ending their romance in January 2021 [MEGA].Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas were one of the hottest couples of quarantine. The two got together on the set of their film Deep Water and went public with their romance in 2020. They were often spotted out and about in Ben’s Los Angeles neighborhood, taking their pups for a walk or enjoying Dunkin’ Donuts coffee. Their public displays of affection made their January split all the more shocking.

“This is something that is mutual and was completely amicable,” a source told People on January 18. “They are at different points in their lives. There is deep love and respect there. Ben continues to want to work on himself. They are both happy with where they are in their lives.”

Throughout their romance, Ben and Ana appeared to be as steady as ever. Although they were relatively private about their romance, they never hesitated to show fans that they were going steady by taking walks and running errands together over the course of the quarantine period in Los Angeles. The Knives Out actress even met and spent time with Ben’s three childrenViolet, 15, Seraphina, 12, and Samuel, 8 — whom he shares with ex-wife Jennifer Garner. But when it came to consider their future, it simply appeared that the two were, indeed, in different places in their lives.

Zoe Kravitz & Karl Glusman

Zoë Kravitz and Karl Glusman were married for 18 months before the actress filed for divorce [AP].Zoë Kravitz and Karl Glusman seemed poised for an exciting 2021. Zoë is the latest actress to take on the iconic role of Catwoman in the upcoming The Batman, while Karl was lining up new, exciting roles after his success in Greyhound and Hulu’s Devs. Sadly, the pair began 2021 with the revelation that they were ending their marriage after only 18 months.

Zoë filed for divorce from Karl late in December 2020, but the news didn’t become public until early January 2021. A representative for Zoë confirmed the news. Karl and Zoë wed in a beautiful ceremony in Paris on June 29, 2019 after years of dating. Neither has publicly addressed the split. Zoë has, however, alluded to the end of her marriage by bidding adieu to 2020 in an Instagram post on December 31. The actress shared a selfie snap with the caption “bye 2020. you f**kin’ weirdo.”

Margaret Qualley & Shia LaBeouf

Shia LaBeouf and Margaret Qualley ended their relationship in early January 2021 [MEGA].Following their collaboration on the 2020 short Love Me Like You Hate Me, Margaret Qualley and Shia LaBeouf began dating. It’s unclear how serious their relationship was, but the two were often spotted making out and taking walks together, especially during the end of 2020. The two decided to call it quits at the beginning of 2021.

“They broke up on Saturday. They’re just in different places in their lives,” a source shared with People at the time. The breakup also came as Shia’s former partner, singer FKA Twigs, filed a lawsuit against Shia for alleged sexual battery, assault, and infliction of emotional distress.

Shia responded to the allegations in an email to The New York Times, writing, “I’m not in any position to tell anyone how my behavior made them feel. I have no excuses for my alcoholism or aggression, only rationalizations. I have been abusive to myself and everyone around me for years. I have a history of hurting the people closest to me. I’m ashamed of that history and am sorry to those I hurt. There is nothing else I can really say.”

Kim Kardashian & Kanye West

Reports circulated on January 5 that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were heading for a divorce after six years of marriage [AP].This potential split sent everyone through a loop. Reports surfaced on January 5 that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were potentially heading for divorce after roughly six years of marriage and four kids. “He knows that she’s done. She has had enough, and she told him that she wants some space to figure out her future,” a source shared with People. “He’s okay. He’s sad, but okay. He knows the inevitable will happen, and he knows that it’s coming soon.”

Circumstances in the Kardashian-West household appeared to hit some major speed bumps during 2020. Kanye’s presidential bid seemingly put a wedge between the couple, and his Twitter tirades didn’t appear to help matters either. But as the months went by, the couple appeared to work on their marriage, and Kanye even gifted Kim a special message from her father for her tropical getaway on her 40th birthday.

Kim and Kanye have practically ruled the Hollywood couple scene for nearly a decade. The two were friendly and hung out in similar social groups before finally getting together in April 2012. Not long after they took their relationship to the next level, Kim and Kanye found out that they were going to be first-time parents. The couple welcomed daughter North in June 2013, and the two had three more children — son Saint, 5, daughter Chicago, 3, and son Psalm, 1.

Kim and Kanye’s relationship might have been front and center for a number of media outlets, but on Keeping Up With The Kardashians it was very rare for Kanye to make an appearance. Instead, the show chronicled the various trips and fashion shows the pair would take over the years, even a number of Sunday Service performances when Kanye pivoted from rapping to Christian artist.

As of right now, however, fans are still speculating the current status of the couple’s marriage. Kim has been spotted out and about without her wedding band on, but it’s nothing new for the fashion mogul. Instead, Kim is putting in the work, and doing what they can for the sake of the couple’s four young children.

“Kim’s been doing everything possible to save her marriage, they’ve been having trouble, as everyone knows, but she just hasn’t wanted to give up,” a source EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife. “They’ve been doing counseling, but they’ve really been spending very little time together. They pretty much just come together for the kids now.”

“It’s been very hard on Kim trying to hold it all together, because more than anything she never wanted her kids to have to go through a divorce,” the source continued. “She still doesn’t want that, it’s very hard for her to accept. But, if she does in fact go ahead and file for divorce the one thing she won’t do is put her kids in the middle.”

Chris Noth’s Mr. Big Won’t Be Returning For ‘Sex & The City’ Revival Series — Report

Chris Noth is reportedly not reprising his role as Carrie Bradshaw’s love interest, Mr. Big, in the ‘Sex and the City’ reboot. Another major love interest also won’t be returning, a new report claims.

Pour a cosmo out for Mr. Big. Chris Noth is allegedly not reprising his infamous role on the Sex and the City revival coming to HBO Max, titled And Just Like That, which Page Six reported on Feb. 18. And Chris, 66, is not the only major love interest who may be skipping out on the reboot, according to this report.

Sarah Jessica Parker as Carrie Bradshaw and Chris Noth as Mr. Big. [Everett Collection]David Eigenberg, who played Miranda Hobbes’ long-running love interest Steve Brady on SATC, was also reported to not be reprising his role. However, the 56-year-old actor’s rep had a conflicting story, telling Page Six that David is still “in negotiations to appear in the series.”

Meanwhile, there has been no word from Mr. Big’s actor on whether or not this report is true. HollywoodLife has reached out to his rep and Sarah Jessica Parker‘s for comment. SJP has not yet confirmed this report, either, after teasing Mr. Big’s possible return in January. After Sarah, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis confirmed that the show is happening via Instagram announcements, a fan asked if Mr. Big will also be “back” for the grand reunion. “Wait and see… x,” Sarah wrote at the time.

Fans know that Sarah’s character, Carrie Bradshaw, was obsessed with Mr. Big from episode one (which premiered in 1998). Despite the many ups and downs that ensued throughout Carrie and Mr. Big’s off-again, on-again romance, the characters ended up tying the knot in the first Sex and the City film that came out in 2008. While they struggled with marital problems in the film’s sequel that arrived in theaters in 2010, they still managed to stay together (so, no divorce).

Chris Noth at the film premiere of White Girl in New York City in Aug. 2016. [Everett Collection]The third film never ended up getting made, in which it was rumored that Chris’s character was killed off. In a 2018 episode of his Origins podcast, James Andrew Miller claimed that Mr. Big dies “of a heart attack in the shower, relatively early on in the film,” thus “making the remainder of the movie more about how Carrie recovers from Big’s death than about the relationship between the four women” in the SATC 3 script. 

Here’s where it gets confusing: Chris denied this rumor and said the death claim “was all a lie” in an interview with Page Six at the British Independent Film Awards in London in Dec. 2018. If this latest report is true, Chris is joining Kim Cattrall — who played one of Carrie’s BFFs, Samantha Jones — as one of the original cast members not returning for the revival.

Suri Cruise looked like the style queen of NYC in a pastel blue puffer jacket and black flared pants, both very trendy Gen Z pieces.

Suri Cruise is reminding us that it’s not 2006 anymore. Katie Holme‘s daughter is growing up, because she proved that she’s already got a great eye for style at just 14 years old as the teen went on a coffee run in New York City on Feb. 4. Suri wore two pieces that are very “in” for her outing: a baby blue puffer jacket, and a pair of black flared yoga pants very similar to the ones that became all the craze after YouTuber Emma Chamberlain took a liking to them.

The blue snow coat also color coordinated with Suri’s spotted blue face mask. It was a cute yet functional outfit; COVID-safe and safe from the cold, since a blizzard swept Suri’s stomping grounds on Feb. 2. The blue puffer jacket also appeared to be the same coat that the student wore for a different outing in NYC on Jan. 25 (instead of the sneakers pictured above, though, the fashionista wore Ugg boots — which have also been experiencing a renaissance in Gen Z fashion).

Suri’s recent outing also serves as a reminder of how much she really is her mom’s doppelgänger! They’ve both inherited the same brunette hair and impeccable sense of style, which is only more apparent when they’re pictured together. The iconic mother-daughter duo were photographed more often before the temperatures took a plunge in the Big Apple, like the time they were spotted taking a stroll in similar boho-chic summer dresses in Aug. 2020.

Suri and Katie’s shared love of clothes is apparent; the mother-daughter tag team were also pictured on a cute shopping date in NYC in Nov. 2020. Now that Suri’s getting older, though, Katie is also giving her teenager more freedom. Before winter arrived, Suri was pictured having a study date with her friends. The flared jeans style also made an appearance when Suri did a remote school study session with her pals that day in Oct. 2020.

This means Katie has also been able to enjoy more one-on-one dates! The Batman Begins star has been dating restaurateur Emilio Vitolo Jr., 33, since Sept. 2020, and they’ve been spotted all over NYC throughout their honeymoon phase. Emilio even gave Suri’s mom a sweet birthday shout-out when she turned 42 years old this past December.

Gigi Hadid, Sophie Turner, and more doting star moms are often seen taking healthy walks with their precious bundles of joy in strollers. We’re taking a look back at some of our favorites right here.

It’s common knowledge that one of the best ways to get in exercise while also spending time with your baby is going for walks with a stroller, and many celeb moms do it! Gigi Hadid, Sophie Turner, and more doting mamas have been photographed going for relaxing strolls with their tots in various locations and it’s always an adorable sight to see! From outings in winter while bundled up to keep warm, to summer outings while taking in the sunlight, there’s never a bad time to go for a walk with a baby!

Gigi has been out and about with her Zayn Malik‘s baby girl since giving birth in the fall, and looking super chic while doing it. The Maybelline model rocked an $1,100 Louis Vuitton shearling hat as she pushed her baby stroller in New York City on Sunday, Jan. 10. She paired the hat with a camel jacket made out of a corduroy material, along with a similar pair of low-heeled boots. The mother-daughter duo were in the trendy Soho district as they passed by Aritzia’s Super World pop-up store.

New mom Gigi made headlines when she was spotted taking her baby daughter out for a stroll in New York City for the first time. The model was wearing a black newsboy-style hat, a long black coat and black boots during the outing as she pushed her newborn, whom she shares with Zayn Malik, in a black and white stroller.

Sophie, who welcomed her baby girl Willa with Joe Jonas in July 2020, has also appeared to be adapting to motherhood well. She’s been seen taking her daughter for strolls around Los Angeles on numerous occasions since her birth, including one on Nov. 13, 2020. The new parent donned a black pinstripe blazer over a dark gray top and black pants during the outing and her hubby Joe joined her in a white jacket with colorful designs over a white top and jeans.

Lea Michele is another new mom that loves going for walks and the arrival of her son Ever, whom she shares with husband Zandy Reich, hasn’t stopped her.

Teresa Giudice is closing 2020 with the “best” thing to happen to her from this dismal year. In a new post the Real Housewives of New Jersey star, 48, shared to Instagram on December 22, Teresa went Instagram official with her new beauLuis “Louie” Ruelas.

A post shared by TERESA GIUDICE ® (@teresagiudice)

The reality TV star looked absolutely elegant in a sparkling black dress that featured a plunging neckline. Her raven black hair cascaded past her shoulders, and Teresa looked exceptionally regal as she posed with her man, 46. Luis wrapped his arm around Teresa’s waist for the photo op, while she gently rested her hand near his. “The BEST thing that came out of 2020,” Teresa captioned the post, adding a cute little red heart emoji.

Fans flooded the comment section of Teresa’s post with warm messages and a lot of love! But the Bravo star has seemingly been getting a lot of affection from her new man in recent weeks. Roughly one week ago, the twosome was spotted out and about in New York City. They flaunted some PDA after dining out at 230 Fifth Rooftop Bar and couldn’t have looked more smitten! But Teresa is still taking things slow with her new man.

Teresa Giudice arrives to ABC ‘Strahan, Sara and Keke’ show in New York City on February 5, 2020 [Mega].Since going public with Luis in early November — two months after finalizing her divorce from Joe Giudice — Teresa has been adamant about taking her time during this new chapter in her life. “I’m taking things slow and we’ll see where it goes from there,” she shared during her November 22 appearance on Watch What Happens Live. But it’s not just her love life that Teresa has been focusing on.

The mother-of-four has also been spending a lot of time with her and Joe’s daughters —  Gia, 19, Gabriella, 16, Milania, 14, and Audriana, 11. The five ladies celebrated Thanksgiving together at the end of November, and Teresa couldn’t help but gush about how proud and “thankful” she was for them. “Thankful for my daughters [SIC] strength to stand tall in this world,” she captioned a photo on Instagram. With 2021 less than two weeks away, we cannot wait to see Teresa continue to embrace this new phase of her life!

After weeks of feuding with another contestant, Bennett Jordan will be part of the dreaded two-on-one date on the Dec. 1 episode of ‘The Bachelorette.’

Noah Erb has rubbed a lot of fellow contestants the wrong way on season 16 of The Bachelorette. More than anyone else, though, Bennett Jordan hasn’t been afraid of calling out the 25-year-old.

Learn more about former NYC mayor Rudy Giuliani, who fell for an embarrassing prank revealed in Sacha Baron Cohen’s ‘Borat’ sequel.

For once, Rudy Giuliani is in the news for something other than defending Donald Trump. It’s not exactly good news for him, though. The president’s personal lawyer was duped by Sacha Baron Cohen with an elaborate prank for Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, and the embarrassing incident is going to take some time to live down. In the meantime, here’s what else you should know about the former New York City mayor, 76:

1. He was caught with his pants (almost) down by Borat. Giuliani fell victim to Baron Cohen’s scheme while unknowingly filming the Borat sequel. During his brief cameo, Giuliani is talking to a woman (Maria Bakalova, 24) who he believes his a reporter for a fictional conservative news program. The “reporter” invites him up to her hotel room for drinks, where he is caught in a compromising position, reclining on a bed with his hand down his pants for several seconds. Borat bursts into the room and reveals that the journalist is actually his “teenage” daughter. Giuliani leaves the hotel, and actually filed a police report after the incident. He didn’t know at the time that it was Baron Cohen.

2. He was the mayor of New York City during 9/11. Giuliani served two terms in office as the Mayor of New York City, from 1994 to 2001. September 11, 2001, was actually the same day of the mayoral primaries; Giuliani would soon be out of office. His handling of 9/11 and the aftermath of the terrorist attack led him to be dubbed “America’s Mayor” and he even received an honorary knighthood from Queen Elizabeth II. Polls taken six weeks after 9/11 showed a 79% approval rating among NYC voters, as opposed to 26% one year prior. He was named TIME Person of the Year in 2001, as well.

3. He’s President Trump’s personal lawyer. Giuliani backed Trump in the 2016 presidential election, and went on to become one of his informal advisors once elected. He joined the president’s legal team in 2018 amidst Robert Mueller‘s Russia probe, and has become an outspoken surrogate for Trump on TV. He’s garnered criticism for some of his controversial statements

4. He ran for president in 2008. Giuliani once had dreams of the White House himself. The former mayor, who ran unsuccessfully for New York Senate in 2000, vied for the presidency in 2008. While at one point the frontrunner for the Republican ticket, he was beaten in the primaries by the late Arizona Senator John McCain. Illinois Senator Barack Obama, of course, would go on to win the election.

5. He claimed his innocence after the Borat sting. Giuliani claimed that nothing untoward was happening during his appearance in Borat Subsequent Moviefilm. The ex-mayor said in an October 21 radio interview, “I had to take off the electronic equipment. And when the electronic equipment came off, some of it was in the back and my shirt came a little out, although my clothes were entirely on. I leaned back, and I tucked my shirt in, and at that point, at that point, they have this picture they take which looks doctored, but in any event, I’m tucking my shirt in. I assure you that’s all I was doing.”

Meghan McCain Gets Called Out By Her Neighbor After Saying Her NYC Neighborhood Was Looted

Meghan McCain Gets Called Out By Her Neighbor After Saying Her NYC Neighborhood Was Looted

After Meghan McCain claimed that her NYC neighborhood looked like a ‘war zone’ after looting, a resident of her building said it was untouched. ‘The View’ panelist then admitted she was staying somewhere else.

There’s nothing wrong with wanting to shelter in place somewhere other than New York City following the vandalism and looting by some outside factions after peaceful George Floyd racial justice protests. But in Meghan McCain‘s case, it appears she wanted to seem like she was hunkered down in Manhattan, while actually staying someplace else. She claimed that her neighborhood looked like a “war zone,” until a resident of her own building publicly called out The View co-host, saying that their area appeared “just fine” outside.

1. I am six months pregnant – a gossip organization is about to run a story of where me and my family are currently. I sent a tweet yesterday based on the news I saw happening in midtown we all have been watching all over different media platforms…

— Meghan McCain (@MeghanMcCain) June 3, 2020

Meghan, we live in the same building, and I just walked outside. It’s fine. https://t.co/ZvwNrjL6P7

— Kristen Bartlett (@kristencheeks) June 2, 2020

Meghan is The View‘s conservative voice and she used her Twitter message about destruction to blast New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio and Governor Andrew Cuomo — both Democrats — over their handling of the civil unrest in the NYC area. On June 2 she tweeted, “My neighborhood in Manhattan is eviscerated and looks like a war zone. DeBlasio and Cuomo are an utter disgrace. This is not America. Our leaders have abandoned us and continue to let great American cities burn to the ground and be destroyed. I never could have fathomed this.”

However, her neighbor Kristen Bartlett pointed out that she saw none of the destruction Meghan described. Kristen — who is the co-head writer on TBS’ Full Frontal with Samantha Bee — retweeted Meghan’s message about the chaos and devastation and wrote, “Meghan, we live in the same building, and I just walked outside. It’s fine.”

After Kristen’s tweet that she and Meghan seemed to not be living in the same place via their completely opposing observations of what their neighborhood looked like, pregnant Meghan, 35, admitted she might be somewhere else. In a June 3 tweet, she said her previous Twitter message about her neighborhood was based on things she saw either on TV or social media.

“I am six months pregnant – a gossip organization is about to run a story of where me and my family are currently. I sent a tweet yesterday based on the news I saw happening in midtown we all have been watching all over different media platforms,” she wrote. She then followed it up with a second tweet saying, “I support the peaceful protests, their movement but am absolutely heartbroken about the destruction in the city I have loved since I moved to when I was 18. It is important to have your voice heard and I hope everyone stays safe and healthy.”

Evan Peters issued a public apology after he ‘unknowingly’ retweeted a video condoning violence against protestors on June 2. Read his full statement.

Evan Peters is apologizing for what he says was an accidental retweet on June 2, also known as “Blackout Tuesday.” — An initiative that calls for a social media blackout amid protests calling for justice in the death of George Floyd, 46. The American Horror Story actor, 33, retweeted a video of a news broadcast that showed police chasing and tackling a looter during protests in California.

“I don’t condone the guy watching the news at all in the video which I have deleted,” Evan tweeted after he began trending on Twitter. “I unknowingly retweeted it. I’m deeply upset it got on my newsfeed. I sincerely apologize if anyone was offended. I support black lives matter wholeheartedly.”

I don’t condone the guy watching the news at all in the video which I have deleted. I unknowingly retweeted it. I’m deeply upset it got on my newsfeed. I sincerely apologize if anyone was offended. I support black lives matter wholeheartedly.

— Evan Peters (@Evan_Peters) June 2, 2020

The initial tweet shared by the actor included the video mentioned above, as well as the caption: “I can watch these piece of sh—t looters get tackled all day!!” The Twitter user who authored the tweet (@RimHammer), caught wind of the backlash and claimed his/her words were “twisted” by internet critics. The account later tweeted, “@Evan_Peters was supporting the taking down of looters.”

After he deleted the retweet, Evan participated in Blackout Tuesday on Instagram. He posted a caption-less photo of a black square in solidarity with the initiative against racism and police brutality.

Peters was recently romantically linked to singer Halsey, who has been protesting in Los Angeles and even provided medical attention to protestors shot by rubber bullets. Their relationship seemed to fizzle out.

Mary-Kate Olsen Files For Divorce From Pierre Olivier Sarkozy, Seeks Emergency Order — Report

It’s over for Mary-Kate Olsen and her husband Pierre Olivier Sarkozy! The fashion designer signed a petition for divorce on April 17, and is asking for an emergency court order to finalize the split.

Mary-Kate Olsen, 33, is seeking a divorce from her husband of nearly five years, Pierre Olivier Sarkozy, 50. The former Full House star has requested an emergency court order after signing a divorce petition on April 17, TMZ reports. Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing guidelines, the New York courts are not currently processing divorce filings, with the exception of emergencies — which is what Mary-Kate has now requested. The billionaire has a prenuptial agreement in place with Pierre, who is the brother of former French President Nicolas Sarkozy, and has also asked that it be enforced.

The couple have been residing in New York City, however, it seems like living arrangements are currently up in the air: Mary-Kate’s legal team reportedly received an email from Pierre with a May 18 deadline to move out of their apartment, TMZ also says. The Row designer has asked for an extension until May 30 due to the pandemic, and she is also claiming that the French investment banker is both trying to force her out of the home and ended the apartment lease without her knowing. Legally, by filing a divorce petition, Mary-Kate automatically stops her soon-to-be ex from getting rid of or disposing of her belongings in any capacity.

Mary-Kate and Pierre tied-the-knot in the Big Apple on Nov. 27, 2015 in an intimate 50-person ceremony at a private residence. The couple originally became engaged in Feb. 2014 after two years of dating, raising eyebrows at the time due to their 17 year age difference. Olivier was previously married to Charlotte Bernard, with whom he shares children, Julien, 18 and Margo, 16, while this was the first marriage for Mary-Kate. Mary-Kate and Pierre have no children together. HollywoodLife has reached out to Mary-Kate’s rep for a statement, but has not received a response as of publishing time.

The actress-turned-fashion designer, and her twin sister Ashley Olsen, 33, have kept a notoriously low profile over the past few years. The sisters did, however, step out for Anna Wintour‘s Met Gala last spring, which they’ve attended ever year in 2013. The Elizabeth & James designers twinned in black leather outfits for the events’ “Camp” theme, with Mary-Kate serving some serious looks on the red carpet.

Anderson Cooper made his first public appearance since welcoming his precious baby boy, Wyatt, on April 27! The CNN anchor made sure to take protective measures for his outing in New York City.

Anderson Cooper, 52, is not taking any risks as a father! The CNN anchor protected himself against viruses with a black face mask while stepping out in New York City on May 1. It was the broadcast journalist’s first public outing since welcoming his baby boy and very first child via surrogate, Wyatt, on April 27. The face mask matched the rest of Anderson’s no-nonsense outfit, which featured a plain black T-shirt, navy pants and sensible white sneakers (he carried his glasses in one hand). The task at hand was picking up a new garbage can; Anderson had made a trip to ACE hardware.

Anderson broke the “joyful” news of his newborn on Instagram and his CNN show, AC360, on April 30, three days after the baby’s birth! The television personality revealed that Wyatt was named after his father, who sadly passed away when Anderson was only 10 years old. “I hope I can be as good a dad as he was,” Anderson wrote in an emotional Instagram post. Meanwhile, Wyatt’s middle name — Morgan — comes from his mom’s family! “I know my mom and dad liked the name morgan because I recently found a list they made 52 years ago when they were trying to think of names for me,” Anderson further shared. He that his baby is “sweet,” “soft” and most importantly, “healthy.” 
Sadly, both of Anderson’s parents couldn’t meet Wyatt (Anderson’s mom, Gloria Vanderbilt, passed away at 95 years old in June of 2019). “I do wish my mom and dad and my brother, Carter, were alive to meet Wyatt, but I like to believe they can see him,” Anderson wrote in his baby announcement. However, Anderson could celebrate the fact that he is a dad, something he didn’t think was possible before.

“As a gay kid, I never thought it would be possible to have a child, and I’m grateful for all those who have paved the way, and for the doctors and nurses and everyone involved in my son’s birth,” Anderson wrote in his Instagram message. On his CNN show, he also gushed over his surrogate: “Most of all, I am eternally grateful to a remarkable surrogate who carried Wyatt, watched over him lovingly, tenderly, and gave birth to him.”
Anderson’s baby came as a complete surprise, since the journalist had remained completely mum on his plans to become a father! As you can see, the baby is in good hands, since Anderson is taking the pandemic seriously. He even slammed Las Vegas’ mayor, Carolyn Goodman, for her statement about eventually reopening casinos!

News Writer & Reporter

Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid are reportedly getting ready to welcome their first child together and we’re reminiscing about the parents-to-be by looking back at some of the best moments in their relationship.

Gigi Hadid, 25, and longtime on-again, off-again boyfriend Zayn Malik, 27, are going to be parents, according to TMZ! The model is apparently 20 weeks along and has been quarantining with the singer ever since the stay-at-home orders have been put into place for most U.S. states due to the coronavirus pandemic. Although the couple hasn’t yet confirmed the baby news themselves, they did recently celebrate Gigi’s 25th birthday together on Apr. 23 along with her sister Bella Hadid, 23. The blonde beauty took to Instagram to share a video clip from the special day that showed her posing and hugging Zayn and Bella while smiling and holding a 2 and 5 balloon.

Before the exciting pregnancy news, Gigi and Zayn broke our hearts on March 13, 2018 when they officially confirmed a break up on social media but a month later in Apr. 2018, they were spotted kissing in New York City. They lasted throughout the year but broke up again before 2019 and by Feb 2020 they were officially back on and seemed happier than ever.

After almost five years of on and off dating, these two have had some pretty memorable romantic moments together so we’ve decided to take a look back at how their relationship unfolded and capture our favorite pics of the gorgeous former couple. From adorable poses on Instagram to cuddly public outings, they’ve always known how to get our attention and make us swoon with delight.

Zayn and Gigi’s romance all started when rumors began to swirl in Nov. 2015 shortly after the model broke things off with Joe Jonas. They were first seen leaving in a car together after Justin Bieber‘s American Music Awards after party and their smiles to each other hinted at something developing. A few days later, Zayn sparked up even more rumors when he posted a photo of himself wearing what looked like Gigi’s glasses on his Instagram. By the end of the month, they pretty much confirmed their new romance when they were seen adorably holding hands while leaving The Nice Guy restaurant in L.A.

Zayn then took to Instagram in Dec. 2015 to post his first photo with Gigi, which showed her sweetly holding his face close to hers. Gigi was soon seen wearing a “Z” necklace that proved she was proud to declare her love for her new boyfriend and if that wasn’t enough, she was also spotted at a Paris airport while holding her phone, which had a background photo of Zayn on it. Zayn then debuted the music video for his hit solo song, “Pillow Talk” and it featured a very sexy Gigi getting mighty close to him.

In Feb. 2016, Zayn posted another Instagram photo of him and his lady love. This time it showed an affectionate Zayn kissing a smiling Gigi. A couple of months later, the hot couple appeared in their first photo shoot together for the cover of Vogue Magazine’s May 2016 issue. Who could forget their next appearance together at the 2016 Met Gala? They posed on the red carpet looking amazing and very much in love. Although rumors about the couple breaking up started to hit the internet a month later in June, Gigi confirmed they were doing just fine by continuing to wear her “Z” necklace and posting a funny photo of two jars of Nutella labeled “Gigi” and “Zayn.”

In July 2016, Gigi definitely squashed all split rumors by posting a kissing photo with Zayn on her Instagram and a few months later in Sept. Zayn posts an incredible photo of Gigi on his Instagram to wish her good luck for her Gigi X Tommy capsule fashion show in New York. The two lovebirds were then seen out and about a couple days later with mutual friend Taylor Swift before jetting out to London together and posing for sweet photos at Fashion Week.

In Oct. 2016, Zayn posts another cuddly Instagram photo in which he’s smoking while with Gigi and another later in Jan. 2017 of them posing for a close up while Gigi played with his hair. Gigi let everyone know they were celebrating their second Valentine’s Day together by being cute once again in a photo on her Instagram and on Apr. 23, 2017, Zayn wished Gigi a Happy Birthday by calling her his everything. They posed in their second Vogue Magazine photo shoot together for the Aug. 2017 issue and a month later in Sept., a shirtless Zayn was seen hugging Gigi in a post her mom, Yolanda Hadid, posted to her Instagram.

On Halloween 2017, Gigi showed off her black cat costume on Instagram while getting close to Zayn in his Spiderman costume and finally, in Nov. 2017, Gigi shared a sweet video of them kissing to celebrate their two year anniversary.

We can’t wait to see how these two develop as a mother and father in the next months and we wish both of them happiness in the future!

Sam Hunt – Breaking Up Was Easy in the 90’s Lyrics

Play this song

[Intro]
Yeah, man, oh man, oh man

[Verse 1]
Bartender looked at me like
“Pony up, man, we’re closin’ down”
I paid the tab, and I turned around
Got on that phone on the way home
And ended up down the rabbit hole again
It’s funny how you haven’t changed a bit
But you’re twice as pretty
Glad you finally got to see New York City
And I know it’s not a race
But it looks like you’re gettin’ over me
Faster than I’m gettin’ over you
But hey, what you gon’ do?

[Chorus]
I’m sick of sittin’ at the house, dyin’ on my phone
Wishin’ I was somewhere I can be alone
Try to let you go, somethin’ always reminds me
I bet breakin’ up was easy in the ’90s
I’m tired of gettin’ drunk, tired of bein’ free
Tired of seein’ pictures I don’t wanna see
Girl, you’re everywhere, everywhere but behind me
I bet breakin’ up was easy in the ’90s

[Verse 2]
Back then, I could’ve convinced myself
That maybe you called when I was out
But you didn’t know what to say, so you didn’t leave a message
And that you’re probably at home right now, sound asleep
‘Cause goin’ out isn’t really your thing
And I wouldn’t have a clue what you been up to lately
Or who you been up to it with
But when I don’t miss your calls, I miss you callin’
And I go ’round and ’round again

[Chorus]
I’m sick of sittin’ at the house, dyin’ on my phone
Wishin’ I was somewhere I can be alone
Try to let you go, somethin’ always reminds me
I bet breakin’ up was easy in the ’90s
I’m tired of gettin’ drunk, tired of bein’ free
Tired of seein’ pictures I don’t wanna see
Girl, you’re everywhere, everywhere but behind me
I bet breakin’ up was easy in the ’90s

[Bridge]
Modern love, it’s the modern hearts breakin’
I’m just a product of my generation, and I
‘Bout had enough, watchin’ you gettin’ on with your life

[Chorus]
Baby, I’m sick of sittin’ at the house, dyin’ on my phone
Wishin’ I was somewhere I can be alone
I try to let you go, somethin’ always reminds me
(I bet breakin’ up was easy in the ’90s)
I’m tired of gettin’ drunk, tired of bein’ free
Tired of seein’ pictures I don’t wanna see
Girl, you’re everywhere, everywhere but behind me
I bet breakin’ up was easy in the ’90s

[Outro]
Hearts breakin’
I’m a product of my
Oh, a product of my generation, oh, and I
My baby, my baby

Mandy Moore – Fifteen Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Young girl, up early
Wasn’t old enough to drive
Took a trip from Seminole County
With her mother by her side
Next up, New York City
World was falling at her feet
She thought she was making music
But she was only filling seats

[Chorus 1]
No regrets, with a few exceptions
Every wrong turn, was the right direction
Still a part of me
Still a part of me

[Verse 2]
Glowsticks, pink cotton candy
A touch of glitter on her lips
On parade for the radio station
So they’ll play her biggest hits
Missed prom, missed graduation
No college end of Fall
On the road with a boyband, singing
For the people in the mall

[Chorus 2]
No regrets, with a few exceptions
Learning to love all the imperfections
That are still a part of me
Still a part of me
Still a part of me
Still a part of me

[Instrumental Break]

[Bridge]
Somewhere between the demo
And the lonely public eye
So real, real famous
Without even knowing why

[Chorus 3]
No regrets, with a few exceptions
Every wrong turn was the right direction
Learning to love all the imperfections
That are still a part of me
Still a part of me
Still a part of me
Still a part of me

Tall Tall Trees – The Wind, She Whispers Lyrics

There is truth and there are stories
From the day when she was born
Like the hearts that beat before me
I will try
I will try
I will try

She was born near New York City
Where the lights can burn your eyes
It’s no wonder why it’s so pretty
Where the stars fall from the sky

Like the wind, she whispers sweetly
In my ear she sings in rhyme
Though the words I can’t remember
I will try
I will try
I will try

In the morning she’s an angel
After noon, she stands a child
By the evening time she’s singing
All through the night she dreams so wild

Like the wind, she whispers sweetly
In my ear she sings in rhyme
Though the words I can’t remember
I will try
I will try
I will try

Just to be there when the sun goes down
Not to freak out when the darkness rolls around
Doesn’t anybody see what I see?
Might be impossible to heal this body

No one tells me when I’m dreaming anymore
I’m drifting endless on a sea without a shore
Oh, my love, shine shine shine
And maybe I might finally find her tonight
I will try
I will try
I will try
I will try
I will try
I will try
I will try
I will try
I will try
I will try, try
I will try, try
I will try, try

100 thousand cash, I can show you what it feels like
Birkin bag, I can show you what it feels like
200 on the dash, I can show you what it feels like
That’s a real ass ’cause I know what it feels like
Weeks in Dubai, I can show you what it feels like
Thousand dollar meals, I can show you what it feels like
Trapping on the grind, I can show you what it feels like
Tell you that I’m on and that’s what it feels like

[Verse 1: Tish Hyman]
I’m from New York City so you know you better come, right
Tourin’ overseas, no sleep ’til sunrise
If that was your girl, then she wasn’t last night
Don’t be mad at me, nigga, that’s your life
Said she love my jewels, wanna know what it feel like
You got too many rules and she lookin’ for the free life
Drop top Rolls, she tryna catch a breeze like
She know I got the gold, she tryna catch a breeze like

[Chorus: Tish Hyman]
100 thousand cash, I can show you what it feels like
Birkin bag, I can show you what it feels like
200 on the dash, I can show you what it feels like
That’s a real ass ’cause I know what it feels like
Weeks in Dubai, I can show you what it feels like
Thousand dollar meals, I can show you what it feels like
Trapping on the grind, I can show you what it feels like
Tell you that I’m on and that’s what it feels like

[Verse 2: Ty Dolla $ign]
She know what it feels like
She know Dolla lay the pipe (aw yeah)
Baby got a past (so what?)
She got miles on that ass
Shawty been in mansions
Shawty been in foreigns
I just follow shawty
She told me you’re borin’
Hotel, hotel suite (hotel, hotel, hotel)
I’ma do the Louis supreme
Shoppin’ ’til we fall out (fall out)
We just f**k after we fall out, ooh yeah

[Chorus: Tish Hyman]
100 thousand cash, I can show you what it feels like
Birkin bag, I can show you what it feels like
200 on the dash, I can show you what it feels like
That’s a real ass ’cause I know what it feels like
Weeks in Dubai, I can show you what it feels like
Thousand dollar meals, I can show you what it feels like
Trapping on the grind, I can show you what it feels like
Tell you that I’m on and that’s what it feels like

[Verse 3: DeJ Loaf]
Chanel bags, Givenchy
The back of the woods, watch you lean on me
Your nigga be purp’ed out

Bust down, twin Rollies
Bust ya down, try to rob me

Have you ever flown on a jet?
Baby, let me take you there
Pick a place, we go there
Eeny meeny minie moe
We spend it all ’cause there’s plenty more

[Chorus: Tish Hyman]
100 thousand cash, I can show you what it feels like
Birkin bag, I can show you what it feels like
200 on the dash, I can show you what it feels like
That’s a real ass ’cause I know what it feels like
Weeks in Dubai, I can show you what it feels like
Thousand dollar meals, I can show you what it feels like
Trapping on the grind, I can show you what it feels like
Tell you that I’m on and that’s what it feels like

Jonathan Ayaz – Oceans Lyrics

This life is crazy
Moving different places
New York City or west coast before the Fall
Only got some time
To make this mine
Let’s make this moment last, f**k it up til the last glass

Oh, we’re all just wanderers
Oh, taking it turn by turn
Oh, gonna let the record burn
Oh, oh

Just let the waves crash down
We’re gonna make the most of right now
Won’t be taken by the oceans
Won’t be taken by the oceans
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah

So many doubt us
Crazy’s what they call us
Cuz we refuse to say anything will get in our way
Try to take my style
Catch up it’ll take a while
I’m in a different lane, making them go insane

Oh, we’re all just wanderers
Oh, taking it turn by turn
Oh, gonna let the record burn
Oh, oh

Just let the waves crash down
We’re gonna make the most of right now
Won’t be taken by the oceans
Won’t be taken by the oceans
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Oh, we’re all just wanderers
Oh, taking it turn by turn
Oh, gonna let the record burn
Oh, oh

Just let the waves crash down
We’re gonna make the most of right now
Won’t be taken by the oceans
Won’t be taken by the oceans
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Pete Molinari – New York City Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I’m alive in New York City
I’m alive in New York City
New York City is keeping me alive

Ain’t no need to strive in New York City
No need to strive in New York City
Ah, New York City is keeping me alive

[Chorus]
Well it’s not so bad
Ah, but then it’s really not that good
Where I go I see all the people sad
They wouldn’t help even if they could

[Verse 2]
I’m alive in New York City
Your spirit dies in New York City
Ah, New York City is keeping me alive

[Chorus]
Well if I just had
Another chance to do some good
Where I go I see all the people sad
I help you, I help you if I could

[Verse 3]
I’m alive in New York City
I’m alive in New York City
New York City is keeping me alive

I’m alive in New York City
Your brains get fried in New York City
Ah, New York City is keeping me alive
Ah, New York City is keeping me alive

Chelsea Cutler – Crazier Things Lyrics

[Snippet]

[Verse 1]
I’ve been trying not to think about it, I can’t help it
I know you don’t wanna hear from me, but I am selfish
And it kills me inside that you can drink on Friday nights
And not even pick up the phone
Yeah, it amazes me that you move on so easily
From someone that you once called home

I wish you had enough discipline for the both of us
Just because I don’t know how to turn off the way I feel
I know you always fell out love so damn easily
But honestly, I don’t think you ever had something real

[Pre-Chorus]
Until you met me, drinks in New York City
f**k, you looked so pretty
Think I fell in love before I even knew your birthday
Kissed you on our first date
Somehow I knew someday
This would hurt ’cause I could never let you go

[Chorus]
Oh, I’ll spend my whole life
Hoping your heart is free, heart is free
Oh, I’ll spend my whole life
Hoping your heart is free, heart is free
Oh I’ll spend my whole life
This ain’t part of me, part of me
‘Cause you had all of me honestly

[Verse 2]

[Pre-Chorus]
Until you met me, drinks in New York City
f**k, you looked so pretty
Think I fell in love before I even knew your birthday
Kissed you on our first date
Somehow I knew someday
This would hurt ’cause I could never let you go

[Chorus]
Oh, I’ll spend my whole life
Hoping your heart is free, heart is free
Oh, I’ll spend my whole life
Hoping your heart is free, heart is free
Oh I’ll spend my whole life
This ain’t part of me, part of me
‘Cause you had all of me honestly
