Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez can’t seem to catch a break during what’s supposed to be one of the happiest times of their relationship.
Weeks after rumors of A-Rod’s alleged infidelity were dismissed, a new accuser has come forward, pointing a finger at the former MLB star for sexting and propositioning her for a threesome while he was with Lopez.
British Playboy model Zoe Gregory revealed to The Sun that her cyber fling with A-Rod — which consisted of them texting and exchanging pictures and videos of a sexual nature — began back in December and ended six weeks before he proposed to J.Lo with a massive emerald-cut diamond ring in the Bahamas.
“J-Lo is amazing and she doesn’t deserve this. While getting ready to marry her, he was asking me for sex videos, demanding we hook up and asking me to make arrangements with other girls. If he is doing this right up until the point he is proposing to her it is just not fair,” Gregory told British tabloid.
A day after Rodriguez and Lopez’s engagement became public knowledge, fellow former New York Yankee Jose Canseco claimed that A-Rod cheated on Jennifer with his ex-wife Jessica. The accusation was immediately squashed by Jessica herself, who says she’s friendly with J-Rod as a couple.

And, for what it’s worth, we don’t think J.Lo is even giving these allegations a second thought. According to Us Weekly, the singer isn’t worried. “She has heard the cheating rumors in the past and has never let it bother her,” a source told the publication. “She trusts [Alex] and his love. They are inseparable and together almost all of the time.”
Well, there you have it, folks. You can’t break true love.
Eventually, when nature called during a visit to a pal’s house, he was thrust into a situation which laid out some cruel, hard truths.
He added: “Fast forward to 22. It’s been a day or two between poops and I’m over at my friend’s house. I excuse myself and lay a gigantic turd. I look down and see that it’s a sideways one, so I crack the door and call out for my friend. He arrives and I ask him for his poop knife.”
“’My what?’ the friend asks – understandably perplexed – and presumably aghast.
“’Your poop knife,’ I says. ‘I need to use it. Please.’”
“Wtf is a poop knife?” the friend asked quite horrified.
“I explain what it is I want and why I want it.
“He starts giggling. Then laughing.”
“Then lots of people start laughing. It turns out the music stopped and everyone heard my pleas through the door. It also turned out that none of them had poop knives, it was just my f****d up family with their f****d up bowels. FML.”
The revelations did not end there,reports Kidspot.
When the man regaled his wife with the tale, she realised what the utility knife hanging in their closet might be used for.
He said: “It turns out that she did not know what a poop knife was and had been using the old rusty knife hanging in the utility closet as a basic utility knife. Thankfully she didn’t cook with it, but used it to open Amazon boxes.
AC MILAN AND INTER MILAN will leave the San Siro and are bound for a new £512million stadium.
Discussions have been held over whether the 80,000-seater ground would be overhauled.
Seven-time European champions Milan have been keen on moving to pastures new and Inter are now on board, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.
Plans for a new home must be put to the Municipality of Milan by the end of the month, and those proposals could be submitted as early as next week, with a move-in date in 2023 pencilled in.
The local authority are said to have already approved the proposition of a new 60,000 ground – which is understood to be modelled on the Metlife Stadium which hosts NFL teams the New York Giants and New York Jets.
When English clubs went to the San Siro – and won!
April 19, 1961: Inter Milan 1-2 BIRMINGHAM – Inter-City Fairs Cup
November 11, 2003: Inter Milan 1-5 Arsenal – Champions League
March 11, 2008: Inter Milan 0-1 Liverpool – Champions League
April 3, 2008: AC Milan 0-2 ARSENAL – Champions League
February 16, 2010: AC Milan 2-3 MANCHESTER UNITED – Champions League
February 15, 2011: AC Milan 0-1 TOTTENHAM – Champions League
Inter are set to give the move the green light.
I Nerazzurri chief-executive Alessandro Antonello said: "We’ve been working on this project with Milan and we believe that a stadium we both own would be crucial for the our growth.
"Inter and Milan have been working on the San Siro project for several months now. We still have work to do, but the time is ripe.
"Soon we’ll inform the city council of what choice the two clubs have made. The city of Milan needs a stadium on par with those of the biggest cities in Europe."
The new build will be located just meters from the San Siro and will include a 5,000-seater venue for music events and a shopping complex.
Both clubs will jointly finance the investment with a naming rights sponsor set to be sought, which could lead to £21million-per-year in additional revenue.
The Italian pair have shared the ground since 1947 when Inter moved in, with Milan having played there since 1926.
Princess Diana was possibly the most beloved member of the royal family ever to grace a magazine cover. The beautiful royal was known for her grace, style, and habit of engaging on a real level with everyone that crossed her path.
While the public’s love and admiration for Princess Diana never wavered, her contentious relationship with many other members of the royal family was legendary. This difficult relationship was strained even more following her divorce from Prince Charles.
Princess Diana often butted heads with other royals
From the very beginning, Princess Diana didn’t fit in with the rest of the royal family. Although she was from the distinguished Spencer family, she still felt as though the glamorous, rigid palace life was quite foreign to her. Although there’s little doubt that she loved Prince Charles, some reports indicate that she didn’t want to marry him, especially after she found out about his longtime relationship with Camilla Parker Bowles. Still, as a young woman of 19, Diana Spencer went through with the much-publicized wedding and became forever known as Princess Diana.
While Prince Charles and Princess Diana went on to have two adorable boys that they both clearly loved, they continued to experience problems within their marriage. Prince Charles refused to end his relationship with Camilla Parker Bowles, which caused Princess Diana great emotional distress. It wasn’t just the marriage that was suffering – the entire royal family wasn’t pleased with the way that Princess Diana communicated with the public and the press. Reportedly, her more casual attitude when it came to public engagements didn’t sit well with the queen, as did her habit of often hugging people. The royal family traditionally kept their distance from the public and didn’t make it a practice to touch commoners.
Over the years, tensions escalated. Prince Charles and Princess Diana eventually decided to legally separate, but to still stay married in name only for the sake of their children. However, when Princess Diana gave a television interview where she openly spoke about Prince Charles’ affair with Bowles, the pot boiled over, and Queen Elizabeth demanded that they divorce.
Did Prince Charles want her title stripped away?
Divorce was not common in the royal family at all, and the news made headlines around the world. While the tabloids raged and published a steady stream of stories detailing Prince Charles’ affair, and the strength of the royal family’s feelings against Princess Diana, the palace was also in an uproar. The divorce proceedings between Prince Charles and Princess Diana turned bitter when he insisted that she lose all rights to use her title.
This was big news for several reasons – apparently, Queen Elizabeth didn’t mind Prince Charles’ former wife keeping the title of Her Royal Highness, The Princess of Wales. However, Prince Charles was dead set against Princess Diana keeping the title. Stripping away her title meant that Princess Diana would have to curtsy to any member of the royal family that she encountered in public, including her sons, as well as giving up any future claim to the throne. Reportedly, Princess Diana was humiliated by this but didn’t seem to have much choice in the matter. Following their divorce, she would officially become known as Diana, Princess of Wales.
Sadly, Princess Diana passed away less than a year following the finalization of their divorce. While she didn’t get the chance to watch her sons grow up and start their own families, both of her sons keep her memory alive in the way that they interact with the public and their fans, and the dedication that they share for making the world a better place.
Never heard of JoJo Siwa? You may need more youth in your life.
Ask most card-carrying members of Generation Z about JoJo, she of the ever-present bow bow (she has more than 1,000 of her trademark accessories, even sleeping with one at night), and they’ll tick off her accomplishments: nine singles, including the platinum hit, “Boomerang,” a YouTube channel that boasts more than 9 million subscribers, an exclusive licensing deal with Nickelodeon and enough branded merchandise with retailers such as Claire’s, Walmart, Target, Payless and Amazon to place her net worth close to $12 million.
Not to mention her new role as Kim Kardashian‘s bestie. When the 15-year-old Nebraska native discovered the reality doyenne’s 5-year-old daughter North West was a fan, she sent over a caseload of bows and other branded products, sparking a dialogue that’s led to them filming a video for Siwa’s popular YouTube channel tomorrow, set to be unveiled this coming weekend. And if Siwa has her way it’ll be the start of a long relationship with the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star.
“You don’t understand, me and Kim, we probably text, like, five times a day,” she told E! News before picking up her Favorite Social Music Star trophy at Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards Sunday. “Kim is so sweet, so nice, so normal, so down-to-earth.” After Siwa agreed to FaceTime with North, “She was like, ‘Thank you so much. I know people ask you for things all the time,'” the YouTube personality shared. “I was like, you’re just so sweet and so normal. It was crazy. They’re just, they’re awesome people.”
When Kim Kardashian is thanking you for taking time out of your busy schedule, well, you’ve definitely made it.
But Siwa insists she’s nowhere near her peak. She’s determined to expand her lines even further, eager to brand a trampoline (“Jumping on my face would be really fun,” she told Kidscreen last summer) and ink a deal with Kraft Mac & Cheese “because I want to eat my face. I want them to be JoJo shaped.” Beyond that, she told the site, “I’ve done a Nickelodeon movie [last February’s Blurt], but I want to do a big-screen movie. And a full album.”

“The dances were hard, by the way,” she shared in her 2017 book, JoJo’s Guide to the Sweet Life. “We had only two days to learn each one—and only two hours with the choreographer each day.”
She ultimately placed fifth, but emerged a big winner, her impressive moves (“I am pretty good in rehearsal and then, like, fabulous on stage,” she declared on the show) and overall state of being extra earning her a guest spot on Miller’s flagship show Dance Moms. She was only supposed to stick around one week, but, as Jessalyn has said, “It’s not her fault she’s a star.”
Seven days turned into two seasons and by the time mother and daughter exited stage left—purportedly annoyed that Siwa was being asked to perform a ballet number—the tiny diva was primed for stardom.
“One of the biggest things that I ever learned from Dance Moms was either to sink or swim,” she shared with Ripa. “Not, like, physically actually in a swimming pool. But to really just be able to survive and to want it.”
Last night!😍 Not only did I get to see the LEGENDARY Elton John perform, but the Rocket Man himself invited me into his dressing room after the show to hang out with him! I talked to Elton and his husband for literally over 30 minutes, it was incredible!👏🏼 I have never been so inspired by talking to someone! Thank you for being a inspiration for me and MILLIONS of others. Elton, you are incredible.💙

As a Dance Moms cast member, she shared in JoJo’s Guide to the Sweet Life, most of her week was consumed with rehearsals at the studios in both Pittsburgh and L.A. “We filmed Tuesday through Saturday and each day had a specific purpose,” she wrote. “Tuesday was interview day. Each interview took about two hours. Wednesday was Pyramid. Thursdays we had rehearsal and Friday we had rehearsal in the morning, then traveled to wherever our competition was that weekend. Then Saturday, of course, was competition day!”
With some 40 hours of her week back, she suddenly had time to devote to her other ventures—the YouTube channel she launched in 2015 to share house tours, hair tutorials, dance lessons and her dream of turning her signature bow-adorned side pony into an accessories line.
“My manager literally just called Claire’s and was like, ‘I need to speak with corporate,’ and wiggled her way in,” Siwa recalled to AdAge of how the 2016 release came to pass. “Then she got hold of this girl and asked her the next time she was in California to let us know and she was like, ‘Well, actually, I am flying out tomorrow.’ But then she said her schedule is full so maybe we could do it the next time. And my manager was like, ‘Actually, we’ll just meet you in the lobby of your hotel, where are you staying?'”

The accessories brand, beloved by middle school-aged girls the world over, agreed to do a test run in 100 stores, eventually upping it to placement in all 3,500 locations. “They took a really, really big chance on me,” admitted Siwa. “And I am so grateful for them because without them it wouldn’t be what it is today.”
Their gamble paid off. And as the star’s devoted Siwanators scooped up her brightly-colored bows—a November Viacom article pegged her sales at 35 million worldwide—Nickelodeon took notice, signing her to an exclusive multi-platform licensing deal that has her performing at network events such as the Kids’ Choice Awards and SlimeFest, producing her own docu-special about her life, JoJo Siwa: My World, starring in an animated series, The JoJo and BowBow Show Show with her dog and hosting two seasons of Lip Sync Battle Shorties with Nick Cannon.
Now she’s balancing work with the network with her burgeoning career as a pop star. She released her debut “Boomerang” in May 2016, following it up with 2017’s “Kid in a Candy Store” and “I Can Make U Dance” and 2018’s “High Top Shoes” and “D.R.E.A.M.”

“I think what happens with those YouTubers is not that they think they’re big enough that they need to stop. I think what happens is they grow and get a TV show, and that takes up a lot of time and so does YouTube,” she noted.
“YouTube is a full-time job because you’re filming all day, editing all night, creating thumbnails, keeping content fun and exciting. So it’s not necessarily that YouTubers want to stop doing it, it’s that there’s literally no time. I’ve been in that place before, but I’ve had to keep doing it because I love YouTube. It’s my passion and I want to do it forever, so I always make sure I upload. Even today, I got back to my room at midnight last night and I would have had to edit, and that would have taken until 2 a.m. and I had a 9 a.m. call time, so instead I did a livestream today.”
And don’t forget about her merchandise, which fills an entire room in her glitter- and rainbow-filled L.A. mansion with clothing, dolls, party plates, Lava Putty Glitt-a-Goo, nail polish and LUNCH KITZ lining the walls. Her bedroom is a shrine to her bedding line and in the kitchen, Jo Jo-themed decals cover the white cupboards above her nacho machine and life-size posters hang next to her beloved claw game machine.

From the Payless sequined high tops to the JoJo action figure doll sold at Walmart (which spent several weeks this summer at the number one spot in sales, topping both Barbie and My Little Pony) to her Target clothing, any Siwa-themed items are hard to keep on the shelves. “A normal collection typically stays on the floor for six to eight weeks,” noted Leah Kellenberger, Viacom’s vice president of retail development for Target. “Many styles sold out in the first couple weeks. It completely exceeded expectations.”
Asked to riff on her appeal, the teenager is admittedly a bit at a loss, telling Kidscreen, “I was thinking about this last night: ‘Why me? Why am I so big?’ It’s so crazy. Maybe it’s that I’m relatable, I’m a kid. I think that has to be what it is.”
And if that’s the case, she’s feeling confident in her longevity. “My audience is going to grow with me. As I turn 16, my fans are going to turn 12, etc. So I don’t think that I’ll age out of them. I think that we can all grow up together. I think we can be friends for life.”
PIERS Morgan has declared 'nuclear war' on Holly Willoughby after she mocked him in upcoming scenes for the new series of Celebrity Juice.
Richard Arnold, 49, gave viewers an exclusive preview of the show set to air on Thursday, which shows Holly, 38, and new presenter Paddy McGuiness, 45, 'wrecking' the set of Piers Morgan's Life Stories.
"Smash up Piers Morgan's Life Stories set," Keith Lemon orders.
The mischievous team captains were then seen running about the notorious set spraying silly string, throwing toilet roll on the floor and slashing the pillows.
In the clip, Paddy can be heard saying: "F*** you Morgan," while Holly says, "Get this stuffing out!"
However, while the rest of the Good Morning Britain presenters were in hysterics Piers, 53, looked less than impressed as he sat with his arms folded.
"Two words, McGuiness, Willoughby- dead meat," he said.
He continued: "Oh don't worry, revenge is a dish best tasted cold. Chillingly cold."
"Are you going to go and silly string Holly's chair," Susanna joked.
But Piers quipped that the pair had declared 'nuclear war'.
He said: "I like people declaring nuclear war and trashing my studio, really I do.
"I'm just the kind of person to take that lying down, not react, not respond.
"You've just sentenced yourself, the pair of you to a lifetime of hell and I will be coming for you shortly.
Susanna chimed in: "And do you know what, that's quite chilling because when Piers Morgan says that he kind of means it."
Piers joked: "I have a mantra-never forgive and never forget."
However, his co-presenters were quick to remind him of his recent reconciliation with Ariana Grande over a couple of drinks.
"I'm a sucker for billionaire popstars," Piers said laughing.
He added: "I've got to say about Ariana Grande, my best friend, she's got very good taste in wine. Who would've thought a 25-year-old pop superstar like her would actually have ordered a really good, expensive bottle of red wine."
Last month it was revealed that Piers and Ariana had ended their feud following an unlikely encounter in Los Angeles.
The pair had a public Twitter spat in November following comments Piers made about Little Mix, with the Good Morning Britain host accusing them of "using sex to sell records."
The pop superstar schooled the TV host with a discussion about women's rights when they bumped into each other at a Los Angeles steak restaurant.
Writing in his Mail on Sunday column, Piers explained how dinner with his manager took an unexpected turn when Ariana and her 8-strong entourage turned up to celebrate her record-breaking chart success.
Their discussion on feminism and political correctness soon had Piers discussing how US radio stations banned Christmas tune Baby It's Cold Outside, due to fears that the song's lyrics referenced sexual assault.
Ariana was left in floods of tears because she had recorded a cover version of the song with ex-boyfriend Mac Miller who tragically passed away last year.
Piers noted how "tears were flowing down her cheeks" as he played the song to Ariana.
The heartbroken dad of a teenage girl found lifeless by a river bank has pleaded for help in finding her iPhone .
Johnny Bamford is desperate to for answers about Pearl Bamford's sudden death.
The 19-year-old, described as a "wonderful daughter and friend", was rushed to hospital in Truro, Cornwall, after she was discovered lifeless but medics were unable to save her.
Now her grief-stricken dad believes her mobile phone, feared to have been taken from her backpack at the scene, will provide vital clues to what happened to her.
He said: "I want to square the circle. Did she contact someone on WhatsApp or did she talk to someone? There are also some poignant photographs that she’d taken with her boyfriend, who’s incredibly devastated."
Pearl's wallet was also taken on March 15 but was later returned to Devon and Cornwall Police .
But the white iPhone 5 remains missing.
And Mr Bamford, from Bude, Cornwall, added: "My plea is that, if someone did take it [her iPhone from her rucksack outside Tesco, it’s got no real value and I’m happy to give them a new one just to have it back so that we can process our grief, no questions asked.
"It may give me some answers, it may give me nothing.
"It’s really just a plea from a dad who’s lost his daughter and needs to know what happened in the last hours. It would help me."
Police continue to investigate the death but do not believe it to be suspicious.
Speaking last week, Pearl's devastated family said: "Pearl was a beautiful unique creative young woman with a great future ahead of her.
"She shone brightly and her light will be sorely missed. Her family and friends are mourning the tragic and untimely loss of their wonderful cherished daughter and friend."
A spokesman for Devon and Cornwall Police said: "We are aware that some items belonging to Pearl have yet to have been located and we continue to review CCTV."
