Rihanna Wants A$AP Rocky To Be Her ‘Final Boyfriend’: Their Romance Is ‘Amazing Right Now’

Rihanna and A$AP Rocky are ‘very happy together’ and have ‘so much in common’, according to sources who spoke EXCLUSIVELY to HL.

It looks like things between Rihanna, 32, and her boyfriend A$AP Rocky, 32, are going great. The singer and rapper, who turned their longtime friendship into romance last year, celebrated Christmas together in her home base of Barbados before recently attending a dinner date in New York City, and it turns out their romance works due to a number of factors, including their compatibility and number of mutual friends.

Rihanna and Rocky are so good. Their vacation together couldn’t have been better,” a source EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife. “The level of attention their relationship gets is intense, so they’ve been trying to play it pretty low key, but they’re still very happy together.”

Before their recent dinner, RiRi and Rocky attended YAMS Day, which was started by Rocky in honor of his late friend A$AP YAMS, who died at the age of 26 back in 2015. “Rihanna was with him this week on YAMS Day. That was Rocky’s best friend, but Rihanna knew him too,” the source explained. “She’s very much a part of Rocky’s inner circle. His friends are her friends, and her friends are his friends. It’s just one of the reasons this is such a great fit.”

Rihanna, who can be seen in a recent Fenty Beauty promo video below, is also serious when it comes to dating and wants Rocky to be her “final boyfriend”. “Rihanna falls in love fast with who she dates as she really wants her current boyfriend to be her final boyfriend,” a second insider EXCLUSIVELY told us. “She only has vibes for who she is dating and no one can ever break that but the person she is dating and as of right now her relationship with A$AP is solid.”
“Rihanna has dealt with it all from good to great to bad relationships they way things are strolling along is looking very special,” the insider further explained. “The fact that they have the same job per se and many similar friends has made things really work out because they have so much in common. Ri is really all about ASAP, things are just amazing right now. She is in very bright spirits.”

Olivia Wilde reveals she’s back filming with boyfriend Harry Styles on their movie

Olivia Wilde has revealed that she is back filming her new movie Don’t Worry Darling, which stars her new boyfriend Harry Styles, amid the coronavirus pandemic.

However, it appears that the 36-year-old actress has been forced to limit the amount of replies to the post, after she was furiously trolled by fans of the former One Direction star, 26, who claimed she should be ‘ashamed’ after going public with their romance. 

‘And we back,’ Wilde captioned an onset photo of her cameraman Matthew Libatique, which was liked by her famous pals including Jennifer Garner – though it also showed she has now disabled comments on her posts and restricted comments to only those that follow her.

Jason Sudeikis, 45, – with whom she she shares two children Otis, six, and Daisy, four – is said to have been ‘blindsided’ by the new romance, after they ended their engagement, following a seven year union which ended late last year.  

But the actress was also met with criticism from Harry Styles fans, when she was flooded with angry messages earlier this year after an innocuous post New Year meme of rock band Ramones.

Some of the One Direction star’s followers claimed the mother-of-two ‘stole’ him from them and slammed their decision to advance from colleagues to lovers, while others defended their romance and branded the hate ’embarrassing’.

Screen star Olivia’s post read: ‘2020, 24 hours to go’ – a funny spin on Ramones’ 1978 hit track I Wanna Be Sedated.

Despite the filmmakers’ efforts to inject humour into the start of the year, a few social media users took the opportunity to lash out at her for dating singer Harry.

One cruelly questioned the professionalism of Olivia’s psychological horror movie, which sees her new beau step into the leading role of Jack, who hides a dark secret from his wife Alice (Florence Pugh).

Debut: Harry and Olivia made their debut as Hollywood's hottest new power at his agent's nuptials in Montecito, California earlier this year

He took over Shia LaBeouf’s role as Florence’s love interest in September last year, and it is his first screen role since the 2017 movie Dunkirk.

They said: ‘dating a Co star and an employee isnt very professional from you …the movie should be called Harry and olivia’. (sic)

Others agreed: ‘So… Harry Styles got the part because he sleeps with the director? LOL.

‘And now we know how he got the part in the film… Did you slept with harry and you gave him the part? and you split with your husband bcoz you want to date harry?’ (sic)

Another troll ridiculed Harry’s past relationships, as well as the New Yorker’s nine-year romance with Sudeikis.

Light-hearted: The filmmaker took to Instagram earlier this month with a funny New Year meme of rock band Ramones

They said: ‘I know Harry have a thing for older women not a mummy with 2 babies… YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF WHAT YOU’RE DOING… DATING A BOY WHO’S WORKUNG FOR YOU!’ (sic)

However, a legion of the songwriter’s loyal fanbase urged the naysayers to stop writing negative comments on Olivia’s page, especially after Harry recently released the music video to his track Treat People with Kindness (TPWK).

Treat People with Kindness is a slogan the media personality first used to promote love and acceptance during his debut concert tour in 2017.

Fans penned: ‘clearly some of you in the comments have forgotten to TREAT PEOPLE WITH KINDNESS!!!! On behalf of the SANE Harry stans, I’m sorry and this is embarrassing.

Harry and Olivia made their debut as Hollywood’s hottest new power at his agent’s nuptials in Montecito, California earlier this year. 

Their appearance marks the thespian’s first public relationship since her split from actor fiancé Jason, 45, in early 2020.

The happy photos came amid claims James Corden helped keep close friend Harry and Olivia’s ‘romance a secret’ after allowing the artist to stay in his home while filming Don’t Worry Darling in Palm Springs, California. 

A source told Page Six: ‘This relationship between Harry and Olivia is very new. Olivia has been directing Harry in the movie in Palm Springs, and there were literally 10 people on the set, because they were strictly adhering to COVID rules. 

‘Harry had been staying at James Corden’s house near Palm Springs during filming, and so they were able to be alone and keep their relationship very secret. 

‘So everyone was really surprised — and rather delighted — when Harry brought Olivia as his date to the wedding, and introduced her as his girlfriend.’ 

The source added that Harry doesn’t give a ‘f**k* about the 10-year age gap and was ‘openly holding hands and kissing Olivia’. Olivia, Harry and James’ representatives were contacted for comment.

Media such as Telemundo and CBS reported that the police in Pembroke Pines, in the Miami area, had alerted of what happened at the national level and thus Sánchez and Martínez could be located on Monday when they were driving on a highway in Alexandria (Virginia).

The young woman was taken to a hospital with minor injuries, but, according to a relative told Telemundo 51, she is physically fine. Sánchez remains in detention.

According to the police, Martínez and his parents were returning home on Sunday night when they encountered Sánchez, who, armed with a pistol, forced them to get into the family car to go to ATMs in search of money.

At one point along the way, in Palm Bech County, he abandoned his parents and continued his journey with the young woman, against her will, according to police.

According to police sources, Martínez and Sánchez had known each other since before this episode and had had a relationship that ended in 2020.

Nicole Martínez’s mother traveled to Virginia to meet her daughter and Sánchez is expected to be extradited to Florida soon, Telemundo 51 said.

Jordyn Woods’ NBA star boyfriend Karl-Anthony Towns has tested positive for COVID-19

Minnesota Timberwolves star Karl-Anthony Towns announced that he tested positive for coronavirus over Instagram on Friday.

The NBA player, 25, was particularly crestfallen about his diagnosis as his mother, 59-year-old Jacqueline Cruz-Towns, passed away from complications of COVID-19 on April 13.

‘Prior to tonight’s game, I received yet another awful call that I tested positive for COVID,’ Towns wrote.

‘I will immediately isolate and follow every protocol. I pray every day that this nightmare of a virus will subside and I beg everyone to continue to take it seriously by taking all the necessary precautions.’

Pushing through: Minnesota Timberwolves star Karl-Anthony Towns announced that he tested positive for COVID-19 over Twitter on Friday; seen on January 13

He continued: ‘It breaks my heart that my family, and particularly my father and sister continue to suffer from the anxiety that comes along with this diagnosis as we know all too well what the end result could be.’

Addressing his niece and nephew directly, the athlete promised he would ‘not end up in a box next to grandma’ and will ‘beat this.’

‘Praying for you baby. You got this. God’s got you,’ commented Towns’ girlfriend Jordyn Woods, while continuing to help her man grieve seven of his relatives’ deaths, due to COVID-19, since March.

His announcement came shortly after the NBA announced Friday’s game between the Timberwolves and the visiting Memphis Grizzlies was postponed due to the league’s COVID-19 health and safety protocols. 

Last month, during an interview with ESPN about the upcoming NBA season, Towns spoke of seeing a ‘a lot of coffins in the last seven months.’

‘I’ve been through a lot, obviously starting out with my mom,’ Towns said. ‘Last night I got a call that I lost my uncle. I feel like I’ve been hardened a little bit by life and humbled.’ 

Tragic: Last month, Towns revealed he has lost seven members of his family to COVID-19, including his mother, pictured above with him in 2016

He did not say which other members of his family had passed away. 

The NBA star said that he is still trying to process the death of his mother as he looks to protect the rest of his family from the ongoing pandemic. 

His father, Karl Sr., also tested positive for coronavirus earlier in the year but has recovered.

‘I have a lot of people who have – in my family and my mom’s family – gotten COVID. I’m the one looking for answers still, trying to find how to keep them healthy.

‘It’s just a lot of responsibility on me to keep my family well-informed and to make all the moves necessary to keep them alive,’ he added.

Towns’ mom Jacqueline Cruz-Towns died on April 13 at the age of 58 after being placed on a ventilator for 19 days.

Weeks prior, he shared an emotional post to Instagram on March 25 in which he wrote that she was on a ventilator and in a medically-induced coma as a result of COVID-19.

‘We need more equipment and we need to help those medical personnel on the front lines,’ he wrote with the video.

He continued: ‘Thank you to the medical staff who are helping my mom. You are all the true heroes! Praying for all of us at this difficult time.’

Afterward, Towns donated $100,000 to the Mayo Clinic to help with testing patients for COVID-19.

Towns later confirmed her death with a touching video showing her by his side at games, press conference and TV appearances.

His mother had been a constant presence through all the large moments of his career, and was often highlighted by fans for her enthusiasm in supporting her son from the crowds.

The basketball star said that he felt compelled to share his mother’s story, detailing how he cared for her on social media, so others would better understand the impact of the pandemic. 

He and Woods, whose father died in 2017 after being diagnosed with cancer,   ‘connected about losing a parent at a very young age’ after years of friendship.

‘The right person will bring a lot out of you,’ she told Extra about the relationship last year. ‘We have been friends for a long time.’ 

Woods was previously linked to Tristan Thompson, after she was reportedly spotted smooching NBA player in the early hours of the morning at his Los Angeles home in January of 2019. 

At the time, Thompson was in a relationship with KUWTK star and baby mama Khloé Kardashian, who has since reconciled with. The pair are focused on raising their daughter True, two.

Bella Thorne’s Boyfriend Benjamin Mascolo Grabs Her Butt During Bikini Workout In Mexico

Bella Thorne was pictured enjoying some PDA with boyfriend Benjamin Mascolo during a romantic getaway in Mexico, two days after Tana Mongeau dissed her on YouTube.

Bella Thorne, 23, is kick-starting her 2021 with a romantic vacation in Mexico with her boyfriend, Italian singer Benjamin Mascolo, 27. The love birds were photographed on a beach in Tulum on Jan. 4, where Benjamin was pictured giving Bella a hug. At one point, the Assassination Nation star launched into a workout in short shorts and a bikini top, which led to a very handsy moment.

At one point during the workout, Bella held onto Benjamin’s shoulder to balance herself — while he held onto her butt! As you can see, the couple of nearly two years is on cloud nine; they also showed off PDA in an Instagram post that Bella shared on Instagram on Jan. 2 (see below).

“I’m so proud of u,” Bella gushed under the vacation selfies, which showed the actress snuggling noses with Benjamin. The lovers were celebrating Benjamin’s new solo album, which he announced amid their Mexico getaway on Jan. 2. “Babeeeeee [heart emoji] 2021 is going to be our year,” Benjamin wrote under the sweet photos.

Bella also rang in New Year’s Eve in Tulum, and is appearing to have fun despite ongoing drama with her ex Tana Mongeau, 23. Exactly one month prior to Bella’s beach date with Benjamin in Tulum, the Disney Channel alum released a music video called “SBF” (shortened for the song’s chorus, “stupid f–king b–ch), which many fans presumed to be about Tana.

Throughout the song, Bella accused Tana (without naming her) of using her “for clout” and of trying to “mimic” her. Then, on Jan. 2, Tana dropped a reaction video titled: “Bella Thorne made a HORRIBLE song about me and we reacted to it..”

Bella split from the famous YouTuber in Feb. 2019, and at the time, the breakup sounded amicable. “I love her forever don’t get that twisted. she changed my life forever. don’t rly wanna talk on it.. there’s no negativity at all,” Tana tweeted at the time. Fast forward two years later, and Tana promised that if her reaction video gets 500,000 “likes” that she and her friends will “come back with all of our worst stories about Bella Thorne.” Bella doesn’t appear to be sweating over the drama, though, as she enjoys her time with Benjamin in Mexico.

Strictly’s Dianne Buswell opens up on marriage plans with boyfriend Joe Sugg

Dianne Buswell has spoken out about her relationship with Joe Sugg and explained why they are in no hurry to walk down the aisle.

The 31-year-old Strictly Come Dancing professional has been inseparable from YouTuber Joe, 29, since they were paired in the 2018 series.

While they have looked loved up on social media, with many posts of them together, as well as launching vlogs and podcasts as a couple, Dianne said she “doesn’t really talk” about marriage or their long-term future with Joe.

Instead, Dianne said that she would rather “play it by ear” as she doesn’t like to “over-plan things.”

She had her first enforced time away from Joe at the end of 2020, as she had to isolate with her Strictly partner, Max George from The Wanted.

Once they had been voted off the series, Dianne shared a number of romantic loved-up snaps of her with Joe as they reunited after some weeks away from each other.

Strcitly’s Dianne Buswell has spoken about marriage plans with Joe Sugg

Speaking to Hello! magazine, Dianne opened up about marriage talk: “I’m quite an unorganised person actually, Joe and I don’t really talk about that kind of thing.

“We’re both so relaxed so we just play it by ear. We really enjoy each other’s company so much and whatever happens, happens.”

The coronavirus pandemic has meant that Dianne hasn’t been able to hook up with her family in Australia and she said that she is missing them dearly.

She said that this is the “toughest thing” she has to deal with each day, especially as she was forced to cancel her trip Down Under at Christmas.

Dianne Buswell and Joe Sugg look loved-up on autumnal walk

Fortunately, Dianne said that she is loving being in the UK with Joe and that she is happy that she gets to do the work she loves.

Her return to the home she shares with Joe was tempered by some horrific trolling on social media, which she exposed to help raise awareness for Anti-Bullying Week.

Shortly after being eliminated from Strictly, she hit out a troll he labelled her “disgusting” and that she had “rat like features”.

Dianne shared the DM with her followers and said that she was lucky in being able to “brush off” horrible comments like that but said “you never know what others are going through”.

Strictly’s Dianne Buswell drops huge hint about Joe Sugg proposal

Sharing the message, Dianne wrote with it: “It’s Anti-Bullying Week! Think before you speak or type you never know what others are going through.

“I receive loads of msgs like this one daily. Lucky I can just brush it off but for some people that’s not the case. Stop cyber bullying.” (sic).

Proposes to her boyfriend at the time of receiving the coronavirus vaccine | The State

Immune to the coronavirus, but not to love.

A South Dakota paramedic proposed to her boyfriend upon receiving the coronavirus vaccine.

A video shows when Robbie Vargas-Cortes, 31, surprises his partner Eric Vanderlee, a volunteer nurse from Sanford Canton-Inwood Medical Center, upon reaching the vaccination point.

The volunteer finds it strange that when looking at the paramedic’s arm there is a tape at the point where the immunization is applied. It was there that Vargas-Cortes took off the ring from the ribbon to propose marriage to the shock of the rest of the medical personnel present.

“I just realized and thought, ‘absolutely, of course, yes.’ It was an amazing moment after I found out, ”Vanderlee told CNN.

Vargas-Cortes was inoculated minutes later. In this way, he was compromised and vaccinated in a matter of 10 minutes.

Vanderlee volunteers to apply the vaccine since his father passed away from coronavirus.
