Former Love Island BFF’s Cara De La Hoyde and Olivia Buckland have found themselves in the centre of a bitter war of words lately.

It comes as Cara refused to go to her former pal’s wedding to Alex Bowen last weekend after she was ditched as a bridesmaid.


But when Olivia claimed this was down to the former Love Island winner ‘not answering her texts’ for weeks on end, now Cara has hit back with a fiery message on Twitter.

Talking to her 364k followers, the mum-of-one blasted: ‘People constantly bringing my name into things. it’s done it’s over stop talking about me.

Cara – who shares one-year-old Freddie with Love Island fiancé Nathan Massey – then added: ‘Iv got a baby to look after I don’t care leave me alone!’

And many fans were quick to support the reality star, with one replying: ‘Don’t listen to negativity. You have a beautiful boy and handsome fiancé ignore the people who are jealous and have to talk about you. Keep strong xxxxxxx’. 

While a second added: ‘Babe your better than that and amazing inside and out. Whoever. Whatever has been said. Rise above and just beautiful and lovely like you always have been’.

This comes after 24-year-old Olivia explained her decision to drop Cara from her wedding party, claiming she wasn’t around much during the planning.

‘She missed a few things and I didn’t see her for weeks and months on end,’ she told OK! magazine.

‘When it came down to it, logistically it was impossible to get her dress fitted.’

Olivia added: ‘It sometimes becomes hard in this industry to differentiate real friends from ‘showbiz’ friends, or at least what side of the coin it is that they see you as, and you can get lost in it.

‘At the time, of course, I still wanted her there – I’d asked her nearly every day for weeks in the run-up to the day whether she was still coming and got no reply.’

Let’s hope these two can sort out their differences!

Speaking to OK! magazine, Emily – who is a trained junior doctor – added: ‘I’m hoping to be able to do things with Theo that I’ve wanted to do for a while, like take him to swimming and other classes with just children his age’.

This comes after 45-year-old Peter confessed he would love to have more kids with his wife in an interview last week.

However, it looks like Emily isn’t exactly on board just yet, as she explained: ‘Pete said in his recent interview that he wants one more child, but I can’t say I’m on the same page at the moment.

‘I think he’s forgotten about the sleepless nights with Theo at the start!

She was also recently filmed rapping ‘I love coke’ in Majorca.

Speaking about Pricey’s state of mind, her mum Amy told The Sun: ‘No mum or dad wants to see their child treated like this, watch as they crumble, and feel powerless to help. It’s unbearable.’

Leslie Jones Goes Off on Kevin Hart & Katt Williams: “None of Those N***as Put Me On!”

Leslie Jones did not take too kindly to being name-dropped by Kevin Hart amid his feud with Katt Williams.

On Friday, during an interview with the Breakfast Club, Kevin Hart went in on Katt Williams in response to his comments about Tiffany Haddish’s career. In that same interview, Hart also claimed that Leslie Jones was one of the many female comedians who were “underneath the umbrella of Katt Williams,” but said Katt didn’t help her make it.

“So when you say Tiffany Haddish doesn’t deserve, or isn’t really a comedian, and these other women have worked hard, which they have,” he said. “Shoutouts to Melanie Comarcho, shoutouts to Luenell, shoutouts to Leslie Jones, who are all underneath the umbrella of Katt Williams. Katt Williams, have you ever used your platform to f***ing bring the people that were under you up? You haven’t!”

Well, according to Bossip, Leslie was most certainly not here for being brought into Kevin and Katt’s beef. Read her statement below, in which she calls out both Kevin and Katt for not doing their part to help female comics:

“Real talk both of them n***as need to keep my name out they mouth unless they using it to eat my p***y REAL TALK!! None of those n***as put me on or any woman. While he talking about Katt, what did he do to put women on? He didn’t help females, they [weren’t] on his tour, F*** THAT N***A!! At least Katt put me on his tour. Kevin could have put me on a long time ago but he never respected me or my comedy, and trust, I can call his card, he [knows] I can. Both Kevin and Katt was the same to women like all these n***as in this game. Sh**ty. and still is. Women have never had it good. At least Katt put women on his tour or shows. How many shows back in the day didn’t have a woman on them? Kevin, that MF told me one time I would never make it.”

Leslie didn’t stop there either. She went on to say that neither Katt nor Kevin helped with her career; Chris Rock was the one who really put her on, and even then, she still had to work hard to get to where she is today.

“So I’m calling all cards, I ain’t got to lie. I made it without either one of them. Chris Rock was the one who put me on, and Neal Brennan, a WHITE comic/writer. Not them!! And I still had To work my f***ing a** off to make it happen!! So nobody is telling the truth! Everyone [needs] to shut the f*** up!! Before I tell what’s really real!! And they all know I know. I haven’t said sh** about anyone and if I do I keep it real and respectful and honest. What’s upsetting me is anybody SAYING ANYTHING!! Shut the f*** up and do your f***ing job cause this ain’t it. While y’all on columns downing each other and lying on each other no one is telling jokes. SHUT UP AND DO YOUR F***ING JOB!! Keep my name out your mouth I don’t talk about any of you!!”

Whew, chile, the anger!

WATCH: Tiger Woods Kisses Girlfriend Erica Herman After First Tour Championship Win in 5 Years

Tiger Woods captured the Tour Champion title on Sunday (Sep. 23), marking his first win in five years, and he celebrated the momentous occasion with a PDA moment with his girlfriend Erica Herman.

After giving an emotional post-match interview, Woods met up with Herman, who looked very happy to congratulate her beau, who was sporting a huge smile across his face. Herman flung her arms around Woods’ neck and the two shared a lengthy brace and told each other “I love you.” After pulling away from one another, they kissed.

You can watch Woods and Hermans’ emotional moment below:

“It’s been tough,” Woods said after the event. “I’ve had a not-so-easy last couple of years and I’ve worked my way back and … it’s just hard to believe I’ve won the Tour Championship.”

His comeback has been several years in the making after his career took a downward spiral following a cheating scandal and ugly breakup with ex-wife Elin Nordegren. He later joined a 45-day therapy program.

“I thought I could get away with whatever I wanted to do,” Woods said in 2010. “I felt that I had worked hard my entire life and deserved to enjoy all the temptations around me. I felt I was entitled.”

Woods dated Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn for over two years after the two met in 2012 at a charity event.

The pro golfer was arrested for driving under the influence last year after authorities found him asleep at the wheel not too far from his home in Jupiter Island, Florida.

Following his May 2017 arrest, in which he told officers he had a bad reaction to prescription drugs, Woods said in July that he had sought treatment to deal with issues regarding his medication.

Woods, 42, and Herman, 33, have been dating for more than a year. They have been spotted on various dates together, grabbing sushi in California and even hitting up a baseball game. The couple took their relationship public—officially—when they attended the Presidents Cup together last fall, where Herman was spotted wearing a “Player Spouse” badge.

Herman has since accompanied Woods to many other events, and the two have been spotted out on numerous occasions, like back in December 2017 when Herman was seen with Woods’ two children at the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas. The paparazzi have also caught them on various dates in California and in Florida.

This year, Herman, who met Woods through work (she was the general manager of his Jupiter, Florida restaurant The Woods), has been spotted cheering for her man from the gallery at various courses. According to TMZ, Herman no longer works at Woods’ restaurant.

Regarding the seriousness of their relationship, a source previously told People that Woods doesn’t plan on getting married again after his split from Nordegren in 2009.

“No one has signed any paperwork,” People’s insider said. “It’s not like they’re pledging their lives to each other. But she’s really nice and Tiger likes her. Tiger doesn’t like to be alone… But he doesn’t like to settle. Not anymore. So when he’s with someone, he really needs to be into her.”

Demi Lovato Spotted Out for the First Time Since Near-Fatal Drug Overdose

Today marks exactly two months since Demi Lovato was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center after overdosing on drugs, and it looks like she’s doing a lot better these days.

Lovato was photographed for the first time since her overdose back in July early Sunday (Sep. 23) while she was out for a walk during her day pass from her rehab facility.

In the photo, obtained by TMZ, Demi—with a large coffee cup in her hand and wearing an olive-green shirt, black leggings, white sneakers, and a black cap—looks pretty happy while conversing with a lady walking her dog.

Eyewitnesses previously told TMZ that Demi had been seen at the local Starbucks fairly regularly lately, but she usually isn’t alone.

Sometimes she heads to the coffee shop with other patients from her rehab facility, which utilizes group therapy as part of its treatment plan. But she’s also reportedly been spotted there with her ex Wilmer Valderrama, who has flown in “several times” to see her at rehab on visiting days and has become a “constant presence” for her.

A source close to Demi told TMZ the exes haven’t reignited their relationship, as Wilmer is just there for her right now as a friend.

As previously reported, the 25-year-old Disney Channel alum was hospitalized in Los Angeles on July 24th after paramedics who were called to her Hollywood Hills home found her unconscious after an apparent overdose.

According to TMZ, her drug dealer allegedly gave her “aftermarket pills” that appeared to be laced with fentanyl, which caused her to OD. Sources close to the singer say that Narcan, which is used to treat narcotic overdoses, was administered to Lovato, and it saved her life.

Lovato’s overdose came a month after the singer revealed in her new single “Sober” that she had relapsed after six years of sobriety. Lovato, who has been open about her struggles with addiction, being bipolar, and an eating disorder, first checked into rehab in 2010 at the age of 18 and entered a sober house for about a year in 2013.

She went straight to a long-term facility on the East Coast after leaving the hospital at the beginning of August before quietly transferring to another facility that is world-renowned for its addiction programs. She broke her silence on August 5th, posting a message to fans on Instagram.

“I have always been transparent about my journey with addiction. What I’ve learned is that this illness is not something that disappears or fades with time. It is something I must continue to overcome and have not done yet,” she wrote. “I want to thank God for keeping me alive and well. To my fans, I am forever grateful for all of your love and support throughout this past week and beyond. Your positive thoughts and prayers have helped me navigate through this difficult time. I want to thank my family, my team, and the staff at Cedars-Sinai who have been by my side this entire time. Without them I wouldn’t be here writing this letter to all of you.”

She concluded, “I now need time to heal and focus on my sobriety and road to recovery. The love you have all shown me will never be forgotten and I look forward to the day where I can say I came out on the other side. I will keep fighting.”

Instagram Photo

Demi’s mother, Dianna De La Garza, opened up about her daughter’s near-fatal overdose in an interview with Newsmax TV on September 18th. She said her “heart dropped” when she received the news from Lovato’s assistant. “She said Demi overdosed. So I was in shock. I didn’t know what to say. It was something I never, ever expected to hear as a parent about any of my kids,” De La Garza said. “I said, ‘Is she OK?’ And she stopped for a second and she said, ‘She’s conscious, but she’s not talking.’ I knew at that point that we were in trouble.”

Demi’s mother admitted, “We just didn’t know for two days if she was going to make it or not.” Thankfully, however, Demi is doing much better now. “She’s happy. She’s healthy. She’s working on her sobriety, and she’s getting the help she needs,” her mom said. “That in itself encourages me about her future and about the future of our family.”

SiriusXM Satellite Radio to Buy Pandora for $3.5 Billion to Get Into Music Streaming Business

These days, digital music streaming is business, and the satellite radio service SiriusXM wants in on it. So, instead of building their own platform from scratch, they are putting up $3.5 billion to buy Pandora in an all-stock deal to battle heavyweight streaming rivals Spotify and Apple Music.

Reuters reports:

Sirius XM, controlled by media mogul John Malone’s Liberty Media Corp, has built a name supplying more than 175 channels to car drivers, but has largely trailed Pandora and Spotify Technology SA (SPOT.N) in mobile and streaming content.

Monday’s deal gives the pair a market value of about $34 billion, topping Spotify’s $31.2 billion and follows through on Sirius’ purchase of a 15 percent preferred-stock stake in Pandora for $480 million last year.

Shares in Pandora, which has posted losses for at least the past eight quarters, initially soared 18.4 percent to $10.75 in premarket trading, topping an offer value of $10.05 based on Sirius’ Friday closing price. Sirius shares, however, fell 5 percent to $6.63 as investors worried the company had overpaid.

The deal, worth $2.68 billion at that offer price, is expected to generate more than $7 billion in expected pro-forma revenue in 2018. Analysts said the two businesses were largely complementary.

“SIRI cannot offer on-demand radio, and cannot offer customization, and Pandora offers both,” said Michael Pachter, an analyst with Wedbush Securities in Los Angeles. “Sirius can merge Pandora’s radio business into its satellite subscription business, and can also begin to offer on-demand to its large installed base of satellite subscribers.”

Pandora shareholders will receive a fixed-exchange ratio of 1.44 newly-issued SiriusXM shares for each share they hold. The transaction is expected to close in the first quarter of 2019.

This acquisition is interesting, considering Pandora, which launched as “Savage Beast Technologies” way back in 2000, was the first big player in the music streaming business, however, they failed to capitalize on that advantage in a way that could produce a nice profit.

Despite tough competition from other music services such as Spotify and Apple Music, Pandora had nearly 6 million paid subscribers as of May. Roughly 71 million people use Pandora’s free, ad-supported service.

Meanwhile, SiriusXM currently has roughly 36 million paid subscribers in North America, and Pandora’s large listener base of 77 million users will be a welcome addition to SiriusXM’s business. The combined company will tout more than 100 million listeners.

“We have long respected Pandora and their team for their popular consumer offering that has attracted a massive audience, and have been impressed by Pandora’s strategic progress and stronger execution,” Sirius XM’s chief executive Jim Meyer said in a statement.

“We believe there are significant opportunities to create value for both companies’ stockholders by combining our complementary businesses. The addition of Pandora diversifies SiriusXM’s revenue streams with the U.S.’s largest ad-supported audio offering, broadens our technical capabilities, and represents an exciting next step in our efforts to expand our reach out of the car even further,” Meyer said.

SiriusXM said there won’t be any changes to its satellite offerings or to Pandora subscriptions right now, however, that could change in the future. The two services will also reportedly keep their individual brands, though that might become an issue for the company later on down the road.

“The powerful combination of SiriusXM’s content, position in the car, and premium subscription products, along with the biggest audio streaming service in the U.S., will create the world’s largest audio entertainment company,” Pandora CEO Roger Lynch said in a statement. “This transaction will deliver significant value to our stockholders and will allow them to participate in upside, given SiriusXM’s strong brand, financial resources and track record delivering results.”

Young Thug Finally Releases “On The Rvn” EP Featuring Elton John, Jaden Smith & 6lack

Young Thug’s “On The Rvn” EP is finally here! As promised, the rapper has blessed his fans with the release of a new project, just a little over a month after releasing Slime Language.

On The Rvn was originally set to be released on September 11th, but that ended up being the day he turned himself in to DeKalb County police in Georgia after they put out an arrest warrant for him related to his indictment on 8 felony drug charges stemming from his September 2017 arrest when he was caught with a medley of drugs in possession. He was released from jail two days later after a judge approved his bail.

Thug teased the EP’s official release late Sunday on Instagram with the caption “#OnTheRvn midnight” accompanied by a trailer showing what he’s been going through over the past few weeks.

Instagram Photo

On The Rvn arrived at midnight on Monday (Sep. 24), and as previously reported, the project features guest appearances from Elton John, Jaden Smith and 6lack. Young Thug apparently opted to keep things brief with this EP, as it only has a total of six tracks.

On The Rvn is available via all popular music streaming platforms, including Apple Music, Spotify and TIDAL.

Stream the new project below:

New Couple Alert! Joseline Hernandez Confirms Relationship With Tory Lanez: “I Love Him Like a Fat Girl Loves Cake”

Last week, reality star Joseline Hernandez sparked rumors that she was dating rapper/singer Tory Lanez after she posted not just one, but two photos of them together on Instagram.

The first photo was VERY intimate and it showed him cupping her breasts, while the second was simply of them sitting on a patio and laughing while sipping wine together.

Fans were wondering what was up between the two, and Joseline confirmed that she and Tory are a couple and are DEFLEE bumping uglies on the regular.

“I can tell you one thing. I love him like a fat girl loves cake,” Hernandez told Bossip.

Instagram Photo

She also used a huge ear of corn to symbolize that Tory was packing some “big beefcake” and said that would fight any girl out there checking for him. “These girls better watch out, because I will fight them,” she said.

It looks like Tory Lanez is Joseline’s rebound after she and her baby daddy Stevie J officially broke things off in December 2016, just a few days before she gave birth to their daughter Bonnie Bella. Stevie J has clearly moved on from the relationship as well, because he and Faith Evans tied the knot in a secret “quickie wedding” in Las Vegas back in July.

In a separate interview with Bossip earlier this month, Joseline said she and Stevie are not currently on speaking terms and he owes child support for eight months. She also claimed that the Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star hasn’t seen their 21-month-old daughter in five months.

In other Joseline news, the former LHHATL star has been shooting her own reality show called Joseline Takes Miami, which is set to premiere on WE TV sometime this fall.

Dwyane Wade: I’m Returning to the Miami Heat & Retiring After 2019 NBA Season

Dwyane Wade says the upcoming 2019 NBA Season will be his last … because he is retiring after 16 seasons in the league.

Last Sunday (Sep. 16), Dwyane Wade hit NBA fans right in the feels by announcing his retirement. He also announced that he has decided to return to the team that kicked off his NBA career: The Miami Heat.

Wade was drafted by the Miami Heat, and he played 13 straight seasons with them before taking his talents to his hometown of Chicago and then Cleveland to play one more time with his former Heat teammate LeBron James. In an emotional announcement, the 12-time NBA All-Star declared that the upcoming 2018-2019 season will be his last before retiring.

“This is the hardest decision that I’ve ever had to make, but it’s one of the best decisions that I’ve had to make as well,” Wade said in a nearly 10-minute video posted on his YouTube channel. “To be in this position I’m in, to have the career that I’ve had, I can’t do nothing but smile on it.”

In the video, titled “One Last Dance…”, Wade—clad in a black t-shirt that read #SPOTLIGHTON and standing in front of a dark background—said he used the summer to reflect on his future. He opened the video by saying: “When you first come in the league the vets tell you, ‘Young fella, it’s gonna go by fast.’ You think at that time, ‘Nah, I’m just getting started.’ As I stand here today, September 16th at roughly 1:15 pm, I’m here to tell you, it goes by fast.”

Wade fought back tears as he revealed the death of his agent, Hank Thomas, made him feel like he lost a part of himself. And even though being traded back to Miami helped fill the void a little, he’s ready to see what else his career has in store for him off the court.

“I always did things my way,” Wade said. “Whether they’ve been good or they’ve been bad, I got here because I’ve done things the way that I feel is right for me and right for my family. He added, “I feel it’s right to ask you guys to join me for one last dance, one last season. This is it. I’ve given this game everything that I have, and I’m happy about that, and I’m going to give it for one last season.”

Wade—who already leads the Miami Heat in games (876), minutes played (31,027), points (20,473) assists (5,009), and steals (1,433)—will enter his final season with career averages of 22.5 points, 5.5 assists, 4.7 rebounds and 1.6 steals per game. He’s also one of just nine players in league history with more than 20,000 total points, 5,000 assists, 4,000 rebounds, and 1,500 steals, according to Basketball-Reference.

The Mami Heat announced last Tuesday (Sep. 18) that Wade had signed his contract to make his decision to retire official. According to an NBA source, he will play on a one-year $2.4 million veteran’s minimum deal.

“We are very delighted that Dwyane decided to return,” Heat president Pat Riley said in a statement. “I believe that Dwyane can play a big part in us winning, that’s what he is all about. I’m glad he’s back.”
