Prince William Flirting with Model in Switzerland?

Now, this is something new. Prince William has been linked to a scandal. The prince has always managed to stay away of rumors, scandals and public scrutiny, but it seems that this has changed. Prince William managed to create a lot of headlines after he was accused of flirting with a model in Switzerland. And that may not be all.

So, of course, immediately rumors emerged indicating that William might actually be cheating on his wife, Kate Middleton. After allegations of flirting with his woman, model Sophie Taylor, William was also seen partying during his ski trip. Reportedly, William went to a club in Verbier, Switzerland, with three friends, Guy Pelly, James Meade and Tom van Straubenzee. This happened on Monday as the prince was enjoying a short trip to the country.

Prince William and his three friends first went on a ski adventure and then hit the club. The star was spotted partying by TMZ, which obtained some videos of Prince William dancing. However, the fact that he was dancing in a club is not something shocking. What is shocking is that he was spotted having what has been called a “cozy lunch” with Sophie Taylor, a popular model. Radar Online reported that the two were seen drinking wine and beer, and they appeared to be enjoying a great time.

It is important to mention that William and Sophie were not alone at this lunch, which was actually attended by William’s friends, as well. However, Kate was not there and it has actually been said that she stayed at home throughout this entire time and did not join the group for the Switzerland trip.

The fact that Sophie met William was in fact confirmed by the model’s mother, who claimed that they had a few drinks together, but she dismissed any other rumors, saying that Sophie is very happy with her boyfriend, chef Aaron Goodfellow. And an insider talking to US Weekly claimed that Sophie was actually quite affected by the cheating rumors that have been on. The insider claimed that there was no flirting and there is nothing going on between the two.

Ed Sheeran’s New Album a Success

Ed Sheeran is definitely enjoying a lot of success with his latest album. In fact, this is the second time when the singer managed to get the number one on Billboard 200. Divide, the latest album of the star, is already a huge success among fans.

So, Divide is the third studio album for Ed Sheeran, but also an amazingly popular album. Actually, this third studio album of the famous singer has become the biggest selling album of the year. The album sold in 451,000 units, out of which 322,000 units were traditional album sales. These figures were registered in the week ending March 10 and were revealed for the first time by Nielsen Music.

An interesting thing to mention at this point is that Divide is the biggest selling album of the year so far and it actually stays close to J Cole’s album, 4 Your Eyez Only, which debuted at number 1 on December 31, selling 492,000 units. Divide is the biggest selling album since J Cole’s work was highly welcomed on the market at the end of 2016.

So, Divide sold no less than 322,000 units in traditional album sales, but also 90,000 streaming equivalent album units. Another important thing to mention is that this is also the third fastest-selling album according Official Charts Company. Divide is also the highest opening sale for a male artist according to the same source.

And Ed Sheeran continues to establish some records. All the songs from his album are very successful, and in fact every song managed to stay within the top 10 of the UK’s Official Singles chart, an amazing achievement. Ed Sheeran is in fact the first musician to achieve this. As imagined, Ed Sheeran was extremely happy with the success of his music.

“I never expected to have nine songs in the top 10 ever in my life,” the singer said during a previous interview. “I don’t know if something has gone wrong, but I’m definitely very happy about it,” he went on to say. Ed Sheeran is surely at the peak of his career, as the star is also getting on an acting role, being announced that he will star in the upcoming season of Game of Thrones.

WikiLeaks Documents indicate that Samsung Smart TVs can be used by the CIA

Samsung is definitely dealing with a lot of issues lately. And the latest news are not great for the famous company, either. So, some new documents released by WikiLeaks indicated that Samsung’s TVs can be used by the CIA to spy on users.

The documents claim that the CIA created a program named Weeping Angel, which uses a television’s microphone to get and transmit information even when the device seems to be switched off. Samsung was not the only company named in WikiLeaks, as Apple and Google were also mentioned.

So, the WikiLeaks claimed that the CIA collaborated with MI5 and BTSS in order to create a program that turned Samsung’s TVS into listening devices. The devices allegedly could record and transmit information to a CIA server. When it comes to Apple devices, CIA hackers developed tools to access iPhones, but they also created tools for phones based on Google’s Android system.

Samsung expressed its interest in protecting the privacy of its customers, as well as the security of its devices and claimed that it was urgently looking into the claims. “Protecting consumers’ privacy and the security of our devices is a top priority at Samsung,” the company stated in an email according to Bloomberg.

The CIA on the other hand, refused to comment on the report. “We do not comment on the authenticity or content of purported intelligence documents,” the CIA stated. Apple stated that the technology on which its devices are based represents the best data security available to consumers. “Our products and software are designed to quickly get security updates into the hands of our customers, with nearly 80% of users running the latest version of our operating system,” Apple’s statement said.

“While our initial analysis indicates that many of the issues leaked today were already patched in the latest iOS, we will continue work to rapidly address any identified vulnerabilities,” it added. On the other hand, Google, who has also been targeted, refused to comment on the allegations. Without a doubt, these claims are not making any good to the image of the three companies.

Selena Gomez to Meet The Weeknd’s Family

Things are going great between Selena Gomez and The Weeknd. The two have been dating for quite some time now and it seems that the romance is going amazingly well. Furthermore, things have evolved so much between the two that Selena will soon be meeting her boyfriend’s family.

According to a source talking to Hollywood Life, Selena will meet for the first time with The Weeknd’s family in May. The event will take place in Toronto, where the musician is set to hold a performance. The insider explained that Selena just cannot wait to meet the family. “Selena plans on meeting The Weeknd’s family in May, when he performs in his hometown Toronto,” the insider said, adding that she is “super excited to meet his mom.”

Of course, Selena can’t wait to meet the entire family, as she actually believes that the musician is “the one” for her. It has recently also been claimed that Selena was ready to introduce her boyfriend to her family and she was just looking for the best moment for that. Hollywood Life claimed that Selena is very serious about this relationship and she wants her family to meet the special man in her life.

“Selena knows her family would love Abel [Tesfaye],” a source explained. “He’s so warm and funny he will get along great with her family members. She’s planning on bringing him to Texas to get to know them better as soon as his tour is finished,” the same insider added. The insider claimed that Selena’s parents are quite worried for their young daughter because they don’t want to see her hurt.

“She’s definitely falling head over heels quickly for Abel, and they definitely don’t want to see her get her heart-broken. She’s in such a good place they would hate to see her sad,” the insider said. Well, considering all these rumors, there is no wonder that it has also been claimed that Selena and The Weeknd might even think about marriage.

“Abel [Tesfaye] is the first boyfriend she’s had that she could seriously see herself marrying and having kids with,” a source said. The rumors are yet to be confirmed.

Lionel Richie Postpones tour because of Knee Surgery

Unfortunately, Lionel Richie fans will have to wait a bit longer until they will be able to enjoy a performance from their favorite star. The singer decided to postpone his hits tour because he had to undergo a knee surgery.

So, Lionel Richie revealed that his tour will be rescheduled and he will perform after his health will improve. The tour has surely been much expected by his fans, even more so as it features Mariah Carey as a special guest. The singer’s new tour is actually named quite simply: All the Hits Tour. The tour was set to launch on March 15 with a first performance in Baltimore. However, now it remains unknown exactly when the tour will actually begin.

The news that Lionel Richie has been dealing with some health issues was first reported by TMZ. The celebrity site claimed last month that the star had a preexisting knee problem that required a medical intervention. The report revealed that the star underwent this surgery sometime last month and actually the intervention did not go very well. An insider talking to the celebrity site indicated that Lionel Richie suffered from some complications because the injury failed to heal right. This means that he needed more time to recover then initially expected and this is why he decided to take some time off.

“When you have been performing as long as I have it takes a toll on your body. Unfortunately my recovery from a knee procedure will not have me 100% ready to start the tour next month,” an official statement said on Lionel’s Twitter account. The same statement added that Lionel didn’t want to disappoint his fans and that he was anxious to get back on stage and perform for them.

A rep for the famous singer stated that most likely the tour will start sometime during the summer. “The tour will be postponed until the summer. New dates to be announced soon. All tickets for rescheduled dates will be honored,” the rep said. The tour is expected to be very interesting since Lionel will actually have for the first time Mariah Carey as a guest.

Matt Reeves Won’t Direct The Batman Movie

Ben Affleck’s upcoming movie, The Batman, is already dealing with some issues. So, it has been reported that Matt Reeves is not going to direct The Batman. Allegedly, he backed out of the negotiations although nothing much has been revealed on this subject.

So, Matt Reeves, who is well known as the director of the Rise of the Planet of the Apes, may not work on this project. Initially, Ben Affleck was supposed to direct the new movie, but he finally decided to step down from this role. Immediately after, rumors started to say that the movie will be directed by Matt Reeves. Well, that is not going to happen, as reports revealed that the negotiations between Reeves and Warner Bros stopped.

The Hollywood Reporter claimed that although the exact reason which led to the end of negotiations between the two parties has not been revealed, maybe there is still room for talks. Of course, Warner Bros is not going to let go of the idea of releasing this movie, so, after all, anything can happen. Well, it is important to mention at this point that Warner Bros has been dealing with a lot of challenges ever since it started working on this project.

Reportedly, the famous company will move to search for another director if a deal with Reeves cannot be reached. However, it is a pity that the parties could not reach an agreement, as it has previously been revealed that Matt was on the same page with Ben Affleck when it comes to the project and the two shared the same creative vision.

When it comes to Matt Reeves, it is safe to say that the star is quite busy. He has been working on War for the Plant of the Apes, which is set to be out in the summer. On the other hand, Ben Affleck, who will star in the movie, previously refused to take the role of a director, saying that it would be too much for him, considering the complexity of his acting role which requires a lot of passion and commitment for a great performance.

Unilever Rejects Takeover Bid from Kraft Heinz

Apparently, famous food giant Kraft Heinz was interested in making a huge acquisition, but unfortunately for the company things did not turn out as it expected. So, a takeover bid from Kraft Heinz was rejected by another giant, Unilever.

Unilever stated that it rejected the takeover bid from Kraft Heinz because it saw absolutely no reason to engage in a conversation about the deal, which would have absolutely no financial or strategic merit. “Unilever rejected the proposal as it sees no merit, either financial or strategic, for Unilever’s shareholders. Unilever does not see the basis for any further discussions,” an official statement indicated.

Well, if Unilever seems to be quite decided in rejecting the offer and claimed that the $50 per share deal offered by Kraft Heinz was undervalued, the bidder seems to be determined to push for a deal.

So, Kraft Heinz stated that it is still looking for a way to reach an agreement with Unilever on the terms of a transaction. This could mean that Kraft Heinz might be willing to go for a higher bid. An interesting thing to mention is that because of the offer, Unilever’s shares actually jumped by 14%, which set a record high.

If the takeover will ever take place, it will actually be the third-biggest takeover in history. Kraft Heinz was also formed by the merger of two giants, Kraft Foods and H. J. Heinz. The company is said to have a lot to win from a potential merger with Unilever, given the latter’s dominance on the market and potential of growth in emerging markets. Furthermore, Unilever has more than 400 brands.

Previously, Kraft Heinz was said to be interested in the acquisition of Mondelez International, but it seems that the interest did not turn out to be materialized. On the other hand, Mondelez was interested in taking over Hershey, but this deal also failed. Without a doubt, a series of purchases could happen in the food sector, but a merger between giants Unilever and Kraft Heinz would surely be something unexpected. It is yet to see if a deal will finally be reached between the two companies.

Beyonce and Jay-Z are fighting over their Children

Beyonce and Jay-Z are set to welcome twins, but rumors are indicating that the two famous singers are dealing with some relationship issues despite the fact that they are going to become parents for the second time.

The latest news about Beyonce and Jay-Z were first published by a Daily Star report. The report indicated that Jay-Z and Beyonce are fighting all the time about their children. Allegedly, the rapper was quite upset and stressed with the fact that his wife made him buy two Dodo Bassinet Golden Edition cribs that were wrapped in champagne silk sheets. Reportedly, they cost about $106,000, so there is no wonder that Jay-Z was not happy at all.

A source talking to the celebrity site claimed that this was not the only purchase that Beyonce asked her husband to make in the process of preparing the welcoming of their twin babies. The report claimed that the rapper also paid $85,000 for gold pendants encrusted with diamonds. Of course, the demands that Beyonce allegedly has from her husband are not making the relationship better.

“Beyonce has been yelling at almost everyone who works for them because she says that no one is living up to her expectations right now,” the insider said. “They are still fighting non-stop and Jay-Z is just super stressed out right now,” the same source added. As imagined, there are no official comments from the two stars at this point.

However, it is safe to say that Beyonce and Jay-Z will most likely not address any of these rumors, as the stars have always tried to stay very private about their personal lives. Well, despite that, this is not the only report saying that the pregnancy has not made things easier between Beyonce and Jay-Z. One report claimed that things are not that great between the two stars.

The report said that despite the fact that they are set to become parents, Beyonce and Jay-Z were actually planning on separating. Rumors on a potential divorce have been ongoing for years when it comes to this celebrity couple, but it seems that Beyonce and Jay-Z have always proven these rumors wrong.

As it always happens when it comes to all celebrity couples, it seems that some rumors are already saying that Selena and her new boyfriend, The Weeknd, may separate. The rumors indicated that the two stars are dealing with some relationship problems, but they were soon dismissed.

So, this means that the two star’s fans have nothing to worry about, as there is no drama when it comes to Selena and The Weeknd. The claims were dismissed by a Gossip Cop report. The potential problems in this new romance were reported by a previous In Touch magazine story, which claimed that the relationship has “hit a speed bump.”

The same report went on to say that Selena may be the one to blame for the fact that things are not working that well in this relationship. The report claimed that the duo are “experiencing significant problems in their relationship due to [Gomez’s] insecurities.” “The Weeknd is starting to feel suffocated by Selena,” one source said according to In Touch. The same insider explained that the famous musician actually feels that Selena is “moving too quickly” in the relationship.

The source explained that one of the reasons why Selena is insecure is actually linked to the fact that she fears that her boyfriend could cheat on her while he is on tour. “She’s so scared that she’s threatened to dump him if he doesn’t let her come along on tour,” this source said. “Selena’s acting so crazy that he’s starting to have second thoughts about their relationship,” the same insider claimed, adding that Selena’s behavior may make her end up in tears. “Friends are concerned that it’s only a matter of time before it all ends in tears due to Selena’s self-sabotaging ways.”

Well, fans of the two stars can rest assured that the romance is going well and there is absolutely no problem between Selena and The Weeknd. Gossip Cop claimed that there is no truth in this report and the two stars are still happy together. Well, there is at least one person who does not seem to be happy for the two, and that is Justin Bieber, who appeared to make a joke about not listening to The Weeknd’s music anymore.

So, a report from Hollywood Life claimed that The Weeknd would love to hear Selena singing for him during their first Valentine’s Day together. This means that all that the musician wants on this special day is to hear his girlfriend’s voice. Apparently, Selena and The Weeknd are going to enjoy a romantic dinner date and Selena will sing for her boyfriend. 

This would surely be a unique and a memorable moment in the relationship of the two stars. “If she insists on giving him a gift, he’d love it for her to sing to him,” a source told the celebrity site. “[Selena’s] voice is so magical and lights up his heart the way Times Square lights up Manhattan. Her voice is such a gift. A rare talent,” the same insider went on to add. “If she shares that with him on an intimate and quiet Valentine’s Day, it would be a night he’d never forget.”

Well, The Weeknd may want a romantic and unique gift for Valentine’s Day, but Selena surely has something impressive and luxurious for his birthday. The Weeknd will turn 27 on February 16 and his girlfriend plans on giving him a luxury sports car. Apparently, Selena understood that he is passionate about cars and she wants to give him something special. After all, this is the first birthday gift that she offers to her boyfriend. 

“Abel gets very excited when he talks to Selena about muscle cars and she knows it would blow his mind if she got him a new Bugatti or Aston Martin,” a source claimed. However, Selena worries a bit that a car would be too much considering that she and The Weeknd have just started dating. Selena wants to make her boyfriend happy, but “she doesn’t want to scare him with such a demonstrative gift.”
