Bachelor no more?
Word on the street is Prince Harry has a girlfriend, and we’re not sure whether we’re happy or sad about this news. According to the Sunday Express, Harry is dating actress Meghan Markle. Breaking away from his usual type of leggy blondes, Markle is best known for Suits, which films in Toronto, and those Reitmans commercials. So she’s basically Canadian.
“He’s happier than he’s been for many years,” a source told the British newspaper. And while they’re reportedly taking things slow, Harry is said to be “besotted” with Meghan.
“They are taking each week as it comes and just enjoying each other’s company but it’s fair to say that they love seeing each other and there’s a definite chemistry between them,” said the insider. “Harry has been desperate to keep the relationship quiet because he doesn’t want to scare Meghan off. He knows things will change when their romance is public knowledge but he also knows he can’t keep it a secret for long.”
The source added: “It’s too early to say if the relationship will lead to anything long-term but who knows? At the moment they are just taking it a step at a time and seeing how things develop.”
They reportedly met in May while Harry was in Toronto promoting next year’s Invictus Games. And it may be a coincidence but Markle posted several pics on Instagram from her trips to London over the summer.
The Palace never comments on private matters so we’ll just have to continue to speculate. She has been seen wearing beaded bracelets very similar to ones Harry has worn, leading many to believe that’s irrefutable evidence that they’re a gift from the royal. Hmmmm.
Princess Meghan kind of has a nice ring to it, no?
Mariah wants $50 million … for NOT marrying James Packer?
If you thought Mariah’s split with James Packer was going to be a quiet, amicable thing, with the billionaire going back to his billions (isn’t that what billionaires do?) and Mimi trying on feather boas and ordering minions to do her bidding, think again.
The couple was engaged, though never married. But that’s not stopping Mariah from demanding $50 million from her ex. So says TMZ, whose sources say that Mimi believes James owes her because she uprooted her life for him when she moved from New York to L.A., as well as making various financial promises to her. But the kicker is that while they were on vacation on a yacht in Greece, he did something so awful to Mariah’s assistant that “traumatized Mariah so much she had to cancel the South American leg of her tour.”
Ok, but $50 million though?
Bob Dylan is finally speaking out about his Nobel Prize, NBD
It’s been two weeks since Dylan became the first musician to win the Nobel Prize in Literature and he’s finally addressing the honour.
“It’s hard to believe,” he tells the Telegraph, adding that when he first found out, it felt “amazing, incredible. Whoever dreams about something like that?”
When asked if he would attend the ceremony, Dylan said, “Absolutely. If it’s at all possible.”
Yep, that’s about right.
Calvin Harris not-so-subtly shades Taylor Swift
Last month, Harris revealed that his song “My Way” is about a grocery store, and definitely doesn’t have anything at all to do with his relationship with Taylor Swift.
But then the video was released on Friday. And Calvin might want to rethink his public statement because it screams volumes of Swifty shade.
There’s the polka dot dress …
… the protagonist on the horse …
… and, well, THIS:
Brad and Angelina sold their New Orleans home
They’ve had it since the mid-point of their relationship but since that’s over, guess this had to be too. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s home in New Orleans’ French Quarter, which they purchased after Hurricane Katrina, is no longer theirs.
The five-bedroom, three-bath house, which they bought in 2007 for $3.5 million, just sold for $4.9 million, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Guess it’s really over. Excuse us, we’ll be crying over here.
