It surely seems that Andre Agassi and Novak Djokovic already started training together, as Novak is preparing for the Roland Garros. The two were spotted together on the tennis court and the first photos of the stars were published on social media.
Andre Agassi will have a very difficult mission in helping Novak shake his very bad luck and unsuccessful start of the season. Novak has a lot of pressure at Roland Garros, as he is actually the defending champion at this tournament. Novak wanted to make a huge change to get out of this bad state, so the famous tennis player decided earlier this month to fire his entire coaching team.
The decision actually came after Novak lost the Italian Open final in front of Alexander Zverev, a young player who seems to become a constant presence on top. Well, now Novak will benefit from the help and the advice of Andre Agassi and it is yet to see if this is what the Serbian player needed to overcome his series of losses.
For Agassi this will also be an interesting experience, as he actually has never coached a top player before. Furthermore, it has been claimed that the collaboration of the two is on trial now and Agassi is not planning on staying in France for the whole Roland Garros. The collaboration between the two could, however, become more permanent if it proves to be successful on both sides.
Since Novak fired his entire team, including Marian Vajda, who has been his long-time coach, he has been mostly alone in the last few weeks, having only his broker, Marko, and his spiritual guru, Pepe Imaz, to help him. An interesting thing to mention is that before being confirmed to help Novak with his preparation, Agassi was actually mentioned as a potential coach for Novak’s main rival, Andy Murray.
Well, finally Novak convinced Andre to join him, but it is yet to see if the collaboration will turn out to be a success.
Famous singer Mariah Carey and her ex-husband seem to be getting along so well that the latest rumors are indicating that the two plan on getting married once again. So, it has been said that Mariah and Nick plan on remarrying sometime this summer.
The two famous stars have two children together and since their split they seemed to have remained in very good terms. Mariah and Nick were constantly spotted spending time together and it appears that they are doing very well when it comes to dividing their responsibilities and co-parenting their children. Actually, they appear to be doing it so well that the rumors are saying that Nick and Mariah plan on getting back together.
The news was reported by Life & Style, which claimed that Mariah and Nick actually plan to have a big summer wedding. The same report indicated that the ceremony will be taking place in France or Italy and the pair plans on inviting a lot of famous people. “Mariah will have a party in St. Tropez, France, or Italy’s Amalfi coast with 500 guests, including Beyonce and Elton John. They’ll have $1,000-a-bottle Angel champagne, plus a 5-foot cake dusted in real gold,” one insider said according to the celebrity site.
The same source went on to say that Mariah will not hire someone to perform at the event, but plans on doing it herself. She surely wants to be the main star. “Mariah’s singing at her wedding. She’d never hide another star to outshine her,” the source explained. The insider also said that the singer is looking for a unique dress and might actually get a diamond-encrusted wedding gown.
The source also said that the two stars feel that they belong together and they think that they should remarry. The news emerged after Nick and Mariah were spotted at the Kids’ Choice Awards together. Mariah has recently this month ended her relationship to her backup dancer, Bryan Tanaka. Since her divorce from Nick, the famous singer also dated casino mogul James Packer. The two were engaged, but allegedly things ended because of Bryan. Mariah and Nick have not confirmed the latest rumors.
Novak Djokovic has been having quite a rough period of time when it comes to his tennis career. The star just seems unable to keep his success and to regain his series of wins. And he now decided to make a big change. Novak will be coached by famous tennis player Andre Agassi. At least for a few matches, it has been claimed.
Andre will be helping the famous tennis player to prepare for the French Open, title that Novak has to defend next week. Novak was definitely shaken by his last defeat in front of Alexander Zverev, who did an amazing march in Rome and took home the title. Zverev proved to be an amazing tennis player and without a doubt he will continue to make his presence known on the tennis field in the future, as well.
Novak needs to forget about this defeat as fast as possible and start preparing for the new tournament. The star maybe will get the support that he needs from Andre. “I spoke to Andre the last couple weeks on the phone, and we decided to get together in Paris. We don’t have any long-term commitment, it’s just us trying to get to know each other a little bit. He will not stay the whole tournament. He’s going to stay only to a certain time, and then we’ll see after that what’s going to happen,” Novak said.
It is unclear at the moment if Andre will take a more serious commitment and stay with Novak for longer time, but Novak seemed very optimistic about this collaboration in his statement. “Andre is someone that I have tremendous respect for as a person and as a player. He has been through everything that I’m going through,” Novak stated.
The famous tennis player also said that he feels that Andre can bring an overall positive contribution to his life. “He understands the game amazingly well. I am enjoying every conversation that I have with him. Also, he’s someone that nurtures family values, philanthropic work. He’s a very humble man, very educated. He’s a person that can contribute to my life on and off the court a lot. I’m very excited to see what is ahead of us,” Novak concluded.
Some tragic news were revealed over the weekend. Nicky Hayden passed away after an accident while cycling in Italy. The former MotoGP world champion was 35 years old. At the time of the accident, Nicky was training along the Rimini coastline.
Nicky did not die immediately during the impact, but passed away about five days after the road crash. The incident occurred last Wednesday, when Nicky was cycling in Italy and a car collided with his bicycle. The accident caused him severe head and chest injuries. He was immediately hospitalized and stayed under invasive care at the Maurizio Bufalini Hospital in Cesena.
“The medical team has verified the death of the patient Nicholas Patrick Hayden, who has been undergoing care since last Wednesday 17 May in the intensive care unit of the Bufalini Hospital in Cesena following a very serious polytrauma which occurred the same day,” an official statement said.
The star was widely known as a World Superbike Championship rider and a 2006 MotoGP world champion. At the time of the accident he was actually training after his participation in the World Superbike Championship race at Imola.
The star was praised by Valentino Rossi, whom Hayden competed against in MotoGP. After the news of the accident were revealed, Rossi described Nicky as “one of the best friends I’ve ever had in the paddock.” Hayden beat Rossi in 2006 and took the championship in MotoGP, but that was his only championship. He remained in MotoGP races until 2015. In 2016, he started attending the World Superbike Championship.
Famous singer Beyonce is pregnant with twins and it seems that the star cannot wait to become a mom once again. According to a new report, Beyonce is “super excited” to be a mom for the second time. However, the star is also a “little terrified” for the twin’s arrival.
Beyonce is already a mom to daughter Blue Ivy and she is currently pregnant with twins. The star allegedly knows that welcoming twins is going to be exhausting for her, but she still wants to be a “hands-on mom” because she is a “high energy person.” A new report from Hollywood Life said that Beyonce is quite nervous about taking care of two newborns at the same time and she wants to be very much involved, despite having a very big staff to help her.
“Beyonce is super excited and more than a little terrified for the twins’ arrival,” an insider said according to the celebrity site. The source said that although it is going to be hard, “she’s always been a high energy person, and isn’t somebody who needs a ton of sleep, so she’s banking on that standing in her favor.”
Both Beyonce and Jay-Z have been very private about the pregnancy and actually the two famous singers have always managed to keep their personal life quite private. Still, this does not mean that there are not a series of rumors and speculation on talking about the two and the moment when Beyonce might give birth.
Some reports claimed that most likely the famous singer will give birth next month. Sources claimed that Beyonce does not have a very clear strategy on how she plans on losing weight, but she wants to do the same things she did after the birth of Blue Ivy. Without a doubt, Beyonce showed to be in a perfect body shape after welcoming her first child.
Some reports claimed that Beyonce plans on giving birth naturally, but Jay-Z wants to convince her to get a C-section to avoid the pain. Still, he is on board with anything that his wife decides and is supporting her.
Without a doubt, things are going very well when it comes to the relationship of Prince Harry and famous actress Meghan Markle. The two stars are said to be planning a summer wedding and it has now been claimed that they even got the approval of Queen Elizabeth.
The news was reported by OK! magazine, which claimed that Harry and Meghan are planning a $20 million wedding after the Queen gave her blessing for the union. The report claimed that the royal wedding was confirmed by the Kensington Palace and is set to take place this summer. The report also claimed that the two stars “have been talking nonstop about wedding plans, honeymoons and even the prospect of a honeymoon baby.”
The same report explained that Prince Harry actually proposed to Meghan last month. It has been said that he was quite afraid that he will not get a positive answer from the queen on his desire to propose to his girlfriend, but his grandmother gave her approval for him to ask Meghan’s hand in marriage. Allegedly, Prince Harry did not expect for the queen to give her blessing to the wedding and he was actually “shocked.” The same report claimed that Meghan was “ecstatic” to be asked in marriage by Prince Harry.
When it comes to the date of the wedding, nothing is certain yet, but it has been claimed that the event might be taking place in early September. The event is said to be taking place after Pippa Middleton’s wedding. “The palace is abuzz with news that Harry and Meghan will be the Duke and Duchess of Sussex!” a source said.
Although many fans may be very happy to find out that Harry and Meghan plan on getting married, they should know that the claims could turn out being untrue. So, Gossip Cop denied the whole story, saying that it talked to the Kensington Palace, which denied the alleged plans of Harry and Meghan to wed.
Once again a rumor talks about a potential reconciliation of famous singer Mariah Carey with former husband Nick Cannon. Actually, for quite some time rumors have been saying that the two stars could think about a reconciliation. Now, the rumors indicate that the two are actually set to remarry.
A new report from Life & Style claimed that Mariah and Nick are back together. The report said that the two are currently dating and things are going so well between them that they are willing to get married once again. One source talking to the celebrity site claimed that Mariah and Nick were spotted together as they were enjoying desserts out in West Hollywood.
The insider revealed that the two seemed to enjoy each other’s company and even left the venue together. “They were laughing and joking around,” the source said. “They arrived separately, but wound up leaving together,” the same insider explained. The report also claimed that Mariah and Nick decided to give their relationship another chance.
Since their divorce, Mariah has been linked to two men. She initially dated casino mogul James Packer. The two even got engaged and were set to be married, but the relationship ended and Mariah started dating her backup dancer, Bryan Tanaka. The source claimed that despite the fact that she dated other men, Mariah kept on relying on Nick for different things.
“They feel like they belong together,” the source explained. “Mariah wants to get married again, and thinks Nick is the one.” Of course, the report was not confirmed, but indeed Mariah and Nick seem to be very close. Earlier this week, Nick denied that there was more than a friendship and co-parenting between him and Mariah. However, this has definitely not stopped the rumors on this subject.
Famous actress Mila Kunis decided open up about her family and to surprise her parents in a very beautiful way: remodeling the condo they are living in. The surprise home makeover was featured in the latest episode of My Houzz.
The famous actress actually worked with both her husband, Ashton Kutcher, and a Los Angeles designer from the Houzz community for the surprise to be perfect. Mila remodeled the whole apartment. The star confessed that her parents have always refused to move out from this apartment, this being the place where they have lived in the past 20 years.
Mila revealed that she actually grew up in a small town in Ukraine, and moved into this apartment at the age of 9. The famous actress said that a lot of special moments in her life happened there, in her parents’ home, including graduating from high school or getting her first dog. “Everything, as far as my career, happened there,” she also said.
The actress contacted the designer and started doing all the work in the apartment. When this began, the star was 9-months pregnant. Of course, she gave birth and then she had to leave all the work linked to the project in the hands of the designer. But, Mila was very surprised when she saw everything ready, the star being very pleased with what the designer did.
And we can definitely say the same thing about her parents, who were very happy with how their renovated condo looked. Mila’s mom was very emotional and she was crying while telling her daughter that she really liked it. Mila’s father was also very happy. “When you hate something there are millions of words to describe it but when you are happy, you are just happy,” he said.
Mila also explained that she wanted to do this for her parents to thank them for everything they did for her and her brother. She also said that she had the “greatest mom on the planet” and that her “dad is awesome.”
It appears that there is one person who will have a lot to earn from the sale of Yahoo to Verizon. And that person is Yahoo’s chief executive officer, Marissa Mayer. Mayer will be making no less than $184 million from this high profile sale.
So, it has been reported that Yahoo’s CEO will be paid $184 million when the sale of Yahoo to Verizon will be completed. This is expected to happen by the end of the year. The sum is considered to be huge and includes a combination of various payments, such as the values of the shares she owns in the company, outstanding share options, as well as cash payments and a “golden parachute” payment.
Although the final sum to be paid to Mayer includes all of these payments, it is still higher than what Yahoo said last month. The company then confirmed that Mayer will receive the “golden parachute” payment for losing her job. This means that when the deal will be finalized, Mayer will no longer remain with Yahoo.
The deal is yet to be finalized and there is one vote it will have to pass before this will happen. So, the company’s investors will have to vote on the deal this June. The deal between Yahoo and Verizon has definitely managed to draw a lot of media attention. This deal was first announced back in 2016, when it was revealed that Yahoo will be selling its main Internet business to US telecoms company Verizon for the sum of 4.8 billion.
Probably, one of the reasons why this deal got so much interest is not only linked to its impressive value, but also to the fact that Verizon cut part of the initial offer and finally said it will be paying $4.5 billion for the company. This happened after Yahoo publicly announced that it had been the victim of two data breaches, which occurred in 2013 and 2014. This lead to the compromise of the data of more than a billion customer accounts.
When it comes to Verizon’s plans with regards to Yahoo’s business, the company previously stated that it will combine it to AOL, its subsidiary, creating a new company named Oath.
Romania’s anticorruption prosecutors started criminal proceedings and imposed judicial control for 60 days against five people, including a former manager of Microsoft Romania. The case is linked to alleged overpriced software licenses bought by the Communications Ministry from an association of companies, including Microsoft and D.Con-Net.
Not only companies are investigated in relation to the case. Actually, the prosecutors are also looking into the involvement of two former directors in the Communications Ministry, who have been accused of abuse of office. Microsoft Romania’s former manager was accused of complicity to abuse of office. The high profile case also involves former communication minister, Gabriel Sandu, as prosecutors asked the country’s president to grant the approval for the authorities to start their investigation against Sandu. Other former officials were also associated to the case.
The case has been widely debated in the media, being linked to the Romanian Communications Ministry’s decision to buy IT licenses from Microsoft in a contract signed in 2009. The second company involved in the case is D.Con-Net, whom Microsoft insisted to work with. Tatomir actually denied working with any other potential bidder that could supply Microsoft’s licenses to the state, so the Ministry finally decided to award the contract to D.Con-Net. Allegedly, Microsoft’s managing director set restrictive conditions to the deal and Tatomir was also the one who brought D.Con-Net to the association of companies working with the state.
The state paid EUR 90 million to the company, but D.Con-Net paid only EUR 38.8 million to Microsoft. Thus, the damages suffered by the state amount to about EUR 50 million. It has been claimed that in order to help D.Con-Net to win the public tender, two of the company’s representatives actually gave the minister of communications no less than EUR 2.2 million, receiving preferential treatment in exchange.
The corruption case is definitely one of the largest such cases in Romania, as no less than nine former ministers have been accused of corruption in relation to this scandal.
