Prem bosses fear they could be BANNED from using unvaccinated players as Government launches new Covid crackdown
PREM club bosses fear they could be BANNED from playing unvaccinated players under the new Covid crackdown.
The Government confirmed it is introducing the Covid Plan B in response to the threat posed by the Omicron variant.APFans at Old Trafford and other stadiums face needing to show vaccine passports[/caption] AFPPrem bosses like Steven Gerrard and Brendan Rodgers might have to cast an anxious eye around their squads over who is vaccinated if rules are tightened further[/caption]
That will mean fans needing to show ‘vaccine passports’ to enter grounds from next Wednesday.
But across the Prem there are growing concerns that players who are not double vaccinated may fall foul of tighter guidelines.
League chiefs announced in October that 81 per cent of Prem stars had received at least one vaccination, with 68 per cent double-jabbed.
Those numbers are understood to have risen appreciably in the past six weeks, with some clubs pushing hard for players to take their booster shots as well.
But despite Government guidelines that suggest unvaccinated players should only have to test negative in order to be allowed to play, club chiefs are concerned that there could be tougher restrictions.
The clubs have noted how the NBA in the United States wanted a vaccine mandate for basketball stars, with Kyrie Irving of the Brooklyn Nets still banned from even training because of the Covid requirements in New York state.
And in Germany’s Bundesliga, unvaccinated players who test positive or are forced to isolate – including Bayern Munich star Joshua Kimmich – have had their salaries docked.
There is currently no suggestion that the Government envisages a clampdown on the activities of unvaccinated players.Most read in Football SHALL NOT PASS Fans must show Covid passports to enter Prem stadiums from next Wednesday 'WE'RE SCARED' Spurs 'will ask Prem to postpone Brighton clash' as EIGHT players have Covid PS-GLEE Watch Messi curl in wondergoal as he OVERTAKES icon Pele with 758th career strike VAN DE START How Man Utd could line-up vs Young Boys with Van de Beek & Henderson CONFIRMED 'MISINTERPRETED' Lewandowski denies Messi Ballon d'Or rift after 'empty words' claims JINGLE HELL PL clubs fear Xmas lockdown with fans BANNED from grounds amid Omicron rise
FREE BETS: GET OVER £2,000 IN NEW CUSTOMER DEALS
They will be required under the published draft of ‘Plan B’ regulations to ‘test regularly if they are not fully vaccinated’ in their status as ‘members of the workforce’.
Club and fans were relieved to hear that while they face restrictions from next week, there will not be a blanket ban on unvaccinated supporters.
Prem bosses had been worried by the draft regulations which stated: “In certain settings, mandatory vaccine-only certification could be introduced for all visitors aged 18 or over.”
But in his Plan B announcement, which will apply to all sporting events with crowds of more than 10,000, PM Boris Johnson stated that supporters able to show negative tests will also be granted access – at least for now.
The clubs have been preparing for the possibility of vaccine passports for months and even offered to be ‘guinea pigs’ for trials of the concept when the country was emerging from the first and second lockdowns, as a way of ensuring money could still come through the gates.
Prem chiefs calculated that 18 months of no or significantly reduced crowds cost clubs a collective £2billion, with Spurs and Manchester United missing out on £6m in revenue every home match day without supporters in the ground.
If I was a supporter, I’d want to sit next to somebody I know had been vaccinated and gives me the best chance of not contracting the virus.David Moyes
West Ham boss David Moyes appeared to back tougher rules. He said: “We don’t want any more Covid. There have been too many deaths throughout the world.
“If I was a football supporter, I’d want to go and sit next to somebody who I know had been vaccinated and gives me the best chance of not contracting the virus.
“The crowds are so important to football.
“People have a right to make their own choices and I respect that.
“But it’s something now which we would seriously have to consider.”
SunSport revealed there are increasing fears of another total lockdown being imposed in the coming weeks, although that is not on the agenda at this stage.
But fans could also face temperature tests at checkpoints before getting to their entry turnstiles and the new mask rules are expected to apply for all indoor areas of grounds and potentially even for fans at their seats.
That will cause issues for stewards who will be under pressure to enforce any new restrictions, especially if there is a public backlash against the edicts.
Clubs are braced from a backlash and potential issues from fans who are told they cannot take up seats they have paid for without proof of double vaccination or immune status.

I went on a super cringe date – he made me buy half gallon of ice cream, eat it with a fork, and made an awkward request
FIRST dates can be tough.
We’re often preoccupied with how we look, worried about awkward conversations, and wonder whether we’ll hit it off.TikTokAfter agreeing to go on a date with a man she met online, a series of scary events unfolded[/caption] TikTokIn the video, she stared at the camera seriously and spoke in a deadpan tone to recount the horrible night[/caption]
One woman shared details about the worst first date she’s ever been on, and the internet is freaking out.
Maddi met a man on the dating site OkCupid, and he asked her if she was available for a date that night.
He told her his car was in the shop, so he would need her to pick him up.
“Did I do it? Yes. Should I have? No,” she began.
To her surprise, when she arrived at his townhouse, she saw a BMW parked in the garage.
“I said ‘Oh is that your roommate’s car?’ And he said ‘No, that’s my weekend car. And it’s not the weekend so I can’t drive it yet.’”Most read in Fabulous W-RAP LESSON I was fed up of my kids complaining I never buy them anything so showed them SECRET SIGN Meghan & Harry wedding video reveals 'hidden message' fans are just discovering JERK FROM HOME Woman hears cheeky builders making X-rated comments outside bedroom window DISHING IT OUT Mum-of-11 shows how she cooks dinner but trolls slam it as ‘prison food’ NOEL HELL I'm a sex expert and these are the five big mistakes couples make at Christmas NOTE KIDDING Dad shares the ‘ridiculous’ letter handed to his daughter on first day at work
That was only the first bizarre red flag for Maddi.
“So, I start driving us to go get ice cream and I said, ‘Where do you want to go get ice cream?’ And he said ‘Kroger.’”
When he invited her out on an ice cream date, she didn’t think he meant they would buy a half gallon of ice cream at a chain grocery store.
But that’s exactly what they did.
“We get back in the car and I say, ‘Where to?’ And he says, ‘My apartment.’
“Should I have run away screaming? Yes. Did I? No. I went back to the house.”
Inside the townhouse, she said that his things were extremely organized and neat—to a point of eeriness.
“We go into the kitchen, he opens up the vat of ice cream, and takes out two dinner plates.
“He puts them on the table and then starts scooping ice cream onto the dinner plates. Then he hands me a fork to eat the ice cream with, and I do it.”
Maddi found it all strange but hoped the date would take a turn.
They moved to the couch and put on a Disney movie.
“Then he immediately makes a very aggressive move towards me and starts making out with my face.”
An uncalled-for request came shortly after: he asked if he could suck her toes.
“I say ‘No.’ And he says ‘Why not? You’ll like it.’”
To try and get away from the strangeness of it all and wrap her head around what was happening, she went to the bathroom for a break.
But the break never came.
He followed her into the bathroom, locked the door behind him, turned off the lights and turned on the bathtub.
“He says, ‘I like water noises.’
“We stand there in silence for about two to three minutes while the bathtub runs. Then he leaves.”
Taking it as her chance to escape, she made up an excuse to leave and was shocked when he told her couldn’t wait to see her again.
“I left knowing that I almost died that night,” she said.
But things got even more dangerous afterwards.
“Then he proceeded to cyber stalk me for the next year and a half, by creating different fake dating profiles,” she concluded.
More than a first date gone wrong, Maddi’s experience left her terrified.TikTokShe claimed he would go on various fake accounts and pretend he didn’t know her, asking if she would be his dominant or submissive[/caption] We pay for your stories!

A WOMAN has proudly showcased her full beard and the self care that she puts into it, revealing that she refuses to shave it off.
TikTok user PeekabooPumpkin regularly shares videos of her facial hair that grows out of her chin as a result of her polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).TikTok / peekaboopumpkinPeekabooPumpkin has a full beard and loves it[/caption] TikTok / peekaboopumpkinIn fact she even styles and starightens her facial hair[/caption]
PCOS is a hormonal condition that can cause male-pattern hair growth, in Peekaboo’s case, on her chin.
She now shares videos promoting body positivity with her 87,000 strong TikTok following after learning to embrace her hirsutism.
“When you are a female with facial hair you learn to love yourself differently,” she comments.
The TikTok star, who is happily married, often shares videos of her grooming routine which includes brushing, straightening and occasionally plaiting her beard.
She also uses products on her facial hair to ensure it is looking full and shiny on all occasions.
But while PeekabooPumpkin has totally embraced her natural beauty, she is targeted by trolls who make cruel remarks about her aesthetic.Most read in Fabulous W-RAP LESSON I was fed up of my kids complaining I never buy them anything so showed them SECRET SIGN Meghan & Harry wedding video reveals 'hidden message' fans are just discovering JERK FROM HOME Woman hears cheeky builders making X-rated comments outside bedroom window DISHING IT OUT Mum-of-11 shows how she cooks dinner but trolls slam it as ‘prison food’ NOEL HELL I'm a sex expert and these are the five big mistakes couples make at Christmas NOTE KIDDING Dad shares the ‘ridiculous’ letter handed to his daughter on first day at work
However, for every troll that she faces, the woman has just as many fans with some even paying her for a piece of her facial hair and many applauding her body positivity.
Commenting on a video, one wrote: “You’re awesome and beautiful.”
“I admire your courage and attitude,” wrote another, while a third added, “Wish I could be as confident as you!”What is PCOS?
It occurs when the sacs the ovaries sit in are unable to release an egg, which means ovulation doesn’t happen.
For many, the only hint of PCOS is irregular periods, while in more severe cases sufferers can be left with embarrassing hair growth on their faces, chest, back and backside.
Medics don’t yet know what causes polycystic ovary syndrome, according to the Mayo Clinic.
But there are several factors thought to play a role, including:
- excess insulin in the body – if you have too much insulin in your body it may increase your androgen (male hormones) production which could interfere with your ovaries ability to ovulate.
- low grade inflammation – some research has shown that women with the condition suffer from low grade inflammation, which can stimulate the ovaries to produce androgen.
- it’s hereditary – the chances are that if your mother or sister suffers with polycystic ovaries then you will develop the condition too.
A MUM has shared how she was left “humiliated” after she was asked to leave a bar at an old fashioned working men’s club because she is a woman.
Julie Simpson,47, was left fuming after she went to the Cargo Fleet Social Club in Middlesbrough to cheer on her darts playing partner when members of the club shouted “get your lass out of here.”Evening GazetteJulie Simpson said she was left humiliated[/caption] Evening GazetteThe 47-year-old was told to leave the bar of the Cargo Fleet Social Club in Middlesbrough[/caption]
She told Teesside Live: “In my life, I’ve never been shouted and told ‘get out – no women here.'”
“We both went to the bar to order our drinks, and the next thing we knew we were being shouted at – they were shouting ‘get your lass out of here! Get your lass out of here! She’s not allowed in here so get her out!’
“It was really degrading – I just thought to myself what the heck? And it was just normal customers bellowing at me.
“But there was a woman barmaid in there, and as I was talking to her she just told me that they are ‘old fashioned in here’.
“It was really degrading and I felt about two foot tall. I turned to my other half and said ‘look, play your darts and I’ll come back and pick you up – but he said no.
“But I go everywhere with him, and I’ve never experienced anything so horrible.

Ms Simpson from Acklam Green claims there were no posters on the wall explaining the rules and she was not told anything by the barmaid.
The club’s secretary Brian Wilson explained that there are rules in place to prevent women from entering the bar over fears they would be exposed to bad language or fighting.
“They get a card, and they are allowed to go to the Christmas party – it is all free for them – and it seems the only person who is complaining is a woman from a different club.
“It is an old fashioned working men’s club and we don’t think it is right (to have women present) when there are men effing and blinding in the bar – it isn’t right when there are ladies sitting there.”
“We don’t have no lady members in the club, they are all guests and we have a dart room and we allow them to sit in the dart room.
“But because of the bad language situation and the drunken situation, we don’t like women in the bar.”
He continued by saying the club welcomes women in the lounge and darts areas but they are not allowed to enter the bar.
He added that other members of the club don’t have a problem with their rules and says they have never had another complaint.
Yet Julie insists she was a victim of discrimination and added: “I would understand if I’d shouted or swore at the staff, but in this day and age, it is normal (for a woman) to go to the bar and get a pint.”
“What happened would be degrading to any woman. The more I think about it, the more I feel discriminated against and degraded.
“To be shouted out, and told no women in here – I just don’t understand.”
Teen Mom Kailyn Lowry slams blackfishing accusations & tells fans to ‘grow up’ after showing darker skin in new selfie
TEEN Mom Kailyn Lowry clapped back at critics who accused her of blackfishing after she posted a selfie appearing “much darker.”
The reality star addressed the cruel comments she received from fans on her Instagram Stories.Instagram / Kailyn LowryKailyn clapped back at fans who accused her of blackfishing in selfie[/caption] InstagramShe previously shared a photo where she appeared ‘much darker’[/caption]
Kailyn explained her previous photo in the clip: “I’m here to tell you guys that this is the exact same makeup that I posted this morning,” she said pointing to her more toned down look.
“It was done this morning, I had a filter on it and it’s TV makeup,” she added before mentioning another pic she shared to compare.
“I posted a reel from Baby Mamas No Drama earlier today and that had my regular everyday makeup and it literally looks like I have no makeup on.
“This is TV makeup and it’s so you don’t look washed out,” she said again referring to the makeup she was wearing.
“So, between that and the filter, I promise you guys, I’m not trying to be something I’m not. It was just the makeup plus the filter.
“So, I don’t know you if want to like grow up,” she concluded the clip.Most read in TV WRIGHT SCARE Mark Wright in hospital after having 12cm tumour removed amid cancer scare TV SHAKE-UP This Morning's Alison Hammond and Dermot O'Leary dropped from Friday's show make up your mind I’m a Celeb fans have the same complaint about Louise after last night frankety blank I'm A Celeb viewers in shock over Frankie Bridge's HUGE gaffe during trial LOVELY JUBBLY Only Fools and Horses' Raquel actress looks unrecognisable 30 years on BOY-LING POINT I'm A Celeb fans blame huge blunder in the voting for saving Naughty Boy
The comments began after Kailyn shared a photo of herself in full glam asking her followers their opinions on a lip color.
Some suggested she looked “orange,” with one teasing: “She’s going full on Chelsea orange.”
One user wrote: “Why does she look like me in high school when I’d cover my entire face with the cover girl loose powder bronzer?”
Another commented: “If you’re from Delaware, why are you orange?” in a nod to Mean Girls.
A third commenter wrote: “So she’s really going for this blackfishing thing now. please no.”
It wasn’t all negative, as a fan popped into the comments to say: “I think she looks pretty.”BRIANA’S CLAIM
While dealing with backlash from fans, the TV star also stirred up drama between former co-star Briana DeJesus, 27, and her baby daddy Chris Lopez.
On Monday, the 29-year-old took to her Instagram Stories to make a juicy claim that Briana slept with her ex when he visited Miami.
The claim began when a fan asked: “What did Javiana owe you while pregnant with/after having Lopez Child?”
Alongside a selfie of the Teen Mom 2 star sipping her coffee and showing off black french tips nails, Kailyn wrote: “I don’t know what you’re trying to say but she allegedly f**ked the third one in April so go ask all of them.”
One day after Kailyn made the allegation, Briana shared her side of the story with a simple statement.
Responding to the mother of four’s claim in a statement to Us Weekly on Tuesday, Briana simply said: “No, I didn’t.”
Briana shut down Kailyn’s rumor as the MTV stars continue their legal battle.LEGAL DISPUTE
Back in June, Kailyn sued Briana for defamation after claiming her co-star “asserted that Kailyn physically beat Christopher Lopez, the father of two of Lowry’s sons, and broke into and entered the home of Mr. Lopez’s mother.”
The Sun can exclusively reveal the two are expected to face off in court on January 14, according to court papers.
The hearing is to rule on Briana’s anti-SLAPP motion, which protects a person’s freedom of speech, that was filed in August to have the case dismissed.
Kailyn was excluded from a June episode of Teen Mom 2, which Briana claimed was because she allegedly “committed violent, physical crimes towards Mr. Lopez.CHRIS’S INVOLVEMENT
“Defendant also asserted that Lowry was arrested for breaking and entering into the home of Mr. Lopez’s mother.”
Kailyn denied that she broke and entered into the home or assaulted her baby daddy.
She sued for $30,000, reasonable costs and attorneys’ fees, as well as a jury trial.
The Sun previously reported that Chris was dragged into the drama after he was served a subpoena.
Per Delaware courts, Chris was issues the subpoena, which orders that the recipient appear in court, testify or produce documentation, on September 16.InstagramShe insisted that her darker skintone was due to the makeup and filter[/caption] Social Media - Refer to sourceKailyn is currently dealing with a legal dispute between her ex co-star Briana and her baby daddy Chris[/caption] Instagram/Kailyn LowryShe shares sons Lux and Creed with her ex Chris[/caption] We pay for your stories!

FOR Boris Johnson, the past 48 hours have been a horror show of historic proportions.
That strategy was exploded by the emergence of year-old footage of his then spokeswoman Allegra Stratton conducting a mock Press Q&A with other aides, in which they giggled about the party, and how to cover it up.
The clip has unleashed tidal waves of fury in his party and in the country, with even Ant and Dec mocking the PM’s relationship with the truth, in a manner far more brutal than Sir Keir Starmer is ever likely to manage.
Yesterday, with little alternative, the PM condemned the film as sickening, yet still refused to admit a party took place.
He also announced what risks looking like a can-kicking inquiry into it, while a contrite Ms Stratton fell on her sword.
The biggest problem of all is that it’s seen to be one rule for Whitehall and the PM, and another for everyone else.
Gatherings in No10 while families were unable to see loved ones even on their deathbeds… Barnard Castle… Sleaze… A senior Foreign Office civil servant staying on holiday for 11 DAYS as the Afghan evacuation floundered…Most read in The Sun LET IT B Here's everything you can and can't do from Friday under Plan B Covid rules HERE WE GO AGAIN PM triggers Plan B with WFH, jab passports & face mask rules within DAYS déjà VU Omicron could hospitalise 1,000-a-day, Sage warns as lockdown 'can't be ruled out' 'will never forget you' Fearne Cotton heartbroken after death of 'best friend' of 20 years FRIGHT BEFORE XMAS PM may trigger Plan B and hit Brits with Covid restrictions to save Xmas 'use your brain' Katie Price makes 'dangerous' parenting blunder with new photo of son Jett
To the public mind, it’s madness and amounts to a failure of leadership by the PM that cannot and must not continue.
Which brings us to the decision to trigger Plan B Covid restrictions last night.
Cynics will no doubt see it as a distraction tactic — a bid to clear up and move on from the debris of Partygate.
This is probably unfair — but that the question can even be asked is a mark of how low the nation’s trust has sunk.
And, whatever the basis for the decision, millions will question its wisdom in the face of a mutant Omicron strain which is apparently milder in its effects.
Especially when the main risk of ending up in intensive care appears to be to those who remain unvaccinated.
For curbs on the public are not cost-free in any sense. Just those announced yesterday are tipped to hit the UK economy by £4BILLION A MONTH.
That’s without getting into the contradictions of guidance to work from home while being free to attend Christmas parties in a pub with your colleagues.
Predictably, scientists at Sage — who by now might as well be wearing sandwich boards with “The End Is Nigh” scrawled on them — howl for another full lockdown, regardless of the non-Covid damage to our physical and mental health.
The PM must resist them tooth and claw. The cost to our children, cancer patients, and businesses is just too great.
Besides, with the response to Partygate having shot yet more gaping holes in his credibility, Boris must fear the impact of his edicts now risks being diluted anyway.We pay for your stories!

‘Some days I couldn’t get out of bed… he would just hold me’, Lisa Snowdon on how fiance helped her through menopause
LISA SNOWDON can count George Clooney among her high-profile romances – but it’s a George from Yorkshire rather than Hollywood who has her heart now.
At the time, Lisa was suffering a hotbed of perimenopausal hormones, which she has said stole her chances of having children with George.
While it is not impossible to get pregnant in perimenopause, Lisa, now 49, knew she probably wouldn’t have a biological child.
The couple are now engaged and insist they are content that it is just the two of them. Model Lisa says: “Kids are amazing and enrich your life, but let’s be honest, there are enough kids in the world. I was with my sister and her kids recently and it is full on. The noise alone — I’m like, ‘Guys, can you keep it down?’
“There’s sometimes too much screaming but it’s amazing to watch them grow, listen to them read and see their imaginations develop. We adore the kids but when we leave, we are like, ‘Bye!’”
George, who is six years younger than Lisa and doesn’t have any children, agrees. He says: “There’s a weird expectancy when it comes to having kids. But we have the freedom to make the choice and I feel we don’t have to justify it. Do I feel like I’ve missed out? Absolutely not. It never crosses my mind. I’m 100 per cent happy that it’s just me and Lisa. We have a very, very fun time.”
Lisa, who went to the Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts with the likes of supermodel Naomi Campbell, was scouted by a model agency at the age of 19. She went on to host several shows on music channel MTV, presented Britain’s Next Top Model and posed for the covers of lads’ mags Maxim, Loaded and GQ and featured in FHM’s 100 Sexiest Women.Most read in The Sun LET IT B Here's everything you can and can't do from Friday under Plan B Covid rules HERE WE GO AGAIN PM triggers Plan B with WFH, jab passports & face mask rules within DAYS déjà VU Omicron could hospitalise 1,000-a-day, Sage warns as lockdown 'can't be ruled out' 'will never forget you' Fearne Cotton heartbroken after death of 'best friend' of 20 years FRIGHT BEFORE XMAS PM may trigger Plan B and hit Brits with Covid restrictions to save Xmas 'use your brain' Katie Price makes 'dangerous' parenting blunder with new photo of son Jett
They met while George was head of events at MTV and had a brief romance.
Meanwhile, George set up a marketing and advertising agency. It was 14 years before they would get together again, but the couple don’t feel they have missed out.
Lisa says: “I feel like that was the way it was supposed to happen. We’ve had relationships that weren’t that great along the way — we’ve made our mistakes here and there — and we’ve learnt the kind of relationship we want to be in.
“It’s not like we’re joined at the hip. I love meals with the girls and George enjoys a day at the races, but when we’re together it’s really easy. Twenty years ago the age gap seemed bigger but George was pretty much a baby back then — and he was in the pub the whole time so that never would have worked.
“Now, there doesn’t feel like an age gap at all. George is a fount of knowledge and so intelligent. That’s one of the things I really love about him. He has a brilliant brain, and that’s hugely sexy.”‘CRAZY RAGES’
And George has also been a rock for Lisa while she has been going through the menopause — a period where she piled on 3st and suffered from brain fog, anxiety and fits of rage.
A winning combination of George’s support and hormone replacement therapy means she is now “the happiest” she has ever been.
She says: “During my crazy rages when I flew off the handle George was patient and kind. He could see through it — ‘This is not Lisa talking’, that kind of thing. He saw it for what it was — some awful anger attack that would pass as quickly as it came, almost.
“Some days I couldn’t get out of bed because of debilitating bleeding during my monthly cycle but George would just hold me, and tell me everything would be OK.
“There were periods when my clothes didn’t fit me and I felt really down. When you’re in the thick of it you think it will never end. Why am I angry, over-emotional — you just don’t know what is going on. George was there for me every step of the way — I’ve really lucked out with him.”
George adds: “The menopause is part of life and making it into a huge drama isn’t going to help. It’s important to be there and try to understand the best you can. I tried to give Lisa stability and there weren’t any huge rows — I was patient.
Some days I couldn’t get out of bed because of debilitating bleeding during my monthly cycle but George would just hold me, and tell me everything would be OK.Lisa Snowdon
“I learned the menopause is different for every woman, so I felt more useful asking Lisa about what was going on for her, rather than turning it into a science lesson. The biggest change was that I couldn’t get a word in edgeways — well, that’s not a change really.”
And his advice to other men whose partners are going through menopause? “Keep perspective, it’s not forever and be patient.”
George is convinced they recently celebrated their seventh year together, but Lisa insists it was their sixth. Either way, there is no hint of the “seven-year itch”.
George proposed 14 months into the relationship, but Lisa insists they are enjoying life together so much that getting married is not a priority.
Lisa, who starred on Strictly in 2008 and I’m A Celeb in 2016, adds: “We are so happy it isn’t something we feel we need — and it’s definitely six years we’ve been together, but they all blend into one. I already feel there isn’t enough time left for the next part of our adventure together.”
George agrees: “I laugh every single day with Lisa, what more can you ask for? When you think of relationships that don’t work it’s usually because one takes the other for granted, but with us there’s more give and give, than give and take.”
Keep perspective, it’s not forever and be patient.George Smart
Lisa’s hoping her 50th birthday will be low-key, unlike her 40th which was a swanky affair in London with actor Matt Damon among the guests.
She says: “My 40th was massive and I feel like I’ve ticked that box now. Milestone birthdays can feel emotional if you’re not in a happy place, but I feel I am where I want to be in my relationship so I’m feeling good about entering the next decade.
“I’ll be happy with something intimate, and George is planning to take me away.”

An estimated one in five of the UK’s population are currently experiencing it.
Yet the menopause is still whispered in hush tones like it’s something to be embarrassed about.
The stigma attached to the transition means women have been suffering in silence for centuries.
The Sun are determined to change that, launching the Fabulous Menopause Matters campaign to give the taboo a long-awaited kick, and get women the support they need.
The campaign has three aims:
- To make HRT free in England
- To get every workplace to have a menopause policy to provide support
- To bust taboos around the menopause
The campaign has been backed by a host of influential figures including Baroness Karren Brady CBE, celebrities Lisa Snowdon, Jane Moore, Michelle Heaton, Zoe Hardman, Saira Khan, Trisha Goddard, as well as Dr Louise Newson, Carolyn Harris MP, Jess Phillips MP, Caroline Nokes MP and Rachel Maclean MP.
Exclusive research commissioned by Fabulous, which surveyed 2,000 British women aged 45-65 who are going through or have been through the menopause, found that 49% of women suffered feelings of depression, while 7% felt suicidal while going through the menopause.
50% of respondents said there is not enough support out there for menopausal women, which is simply not good enough. It’s time to change that.The Mega AgencyToday she reveals: ‘George would just hold me, and tell me everything would be OK’[/caption] GettyShe adds: ‘George was there for me every step of the way — I’ve really lucked out with him’[/caption] We pay for your stories!

England 20 Latvia 0: Lionesses shatter record for highest-scoring win as Ellen White becomes nation’s top scorer
ELLEN WHITE went from centurion to record-breaker as England demolished Latvia in a 20-0 drubbing in Doncaster.
A fifth-minute screamer was among the efforts that saw the forward write her name into the history books as the Lionesses notched up their highest-scoring international win ever.ReutersEllen White became England’s all-time top scorer after overtaking Kelly Smith in the 20-0 win over Latvia[/caption] RexEngland were in no mood to take it easy as they stuck 20 goals past Latvia in their World Cup qualifier[/caption]
White’s second strike saw her register her 47th senior England goal, breaking the record of 46 set by Kelly Smith.
And the result – which included EIGHT first-half goals and FOUR hat-tricks – saw Sarina Wiegman’s aces make it six wins from six World Cup qualifiers.
With the team unbeaten under Wiegman, her attention will no doubt turn to far more testing duels when her Lionesses take on Canada, Germany, and Spain in February.
Before the game, the former Holland chief, whose squad have gone unbeaten since her arrival, talked of the need for the Lionesses to ‘stay aggressive’.
And her aces heeded her call in their second qualifier duel with Latvia turning the heat up on the winless Group D minnows.
All eyes were on White as she and her team-mates took to the field at the Keepmoat Stadium, a ground occasionally used by the trailblazing Doncaster Rovers Belles.Most read in Football JOB FOR ROB Italy's Mancini 'a shock Man Utd manager target and interested in Prem return' 'FEARSOME STRENGTH' Liverpool and Arsenal legend Ray Kennedy dies aged 70 after illness GREAL CLOSE Grealish was 'really close' to Man Utd move which sparked £100m release clause WORKING IT OUT Man Utd's Rangnick blocked from automatic visa as work below required level RIP SKY BLUES HERO Tributes paid to Coventry FA Cup legend John Sillett who has died at 85 RONAL-D'OH Ronaldo may be banned from driving £17m supercars to training under Rangnick
But it was Beth Mead who opened the hosts’ account in the third minute with Lauren Hemp cutting a pass back for the Arsenal ace to slot home.
White doubled the lead with White wallopping in a top corner shot moments later.
The striker then broke Smith’s record in the sixth minute burying a close-range tap-in from a fierce Georgia Stanway cross
From then the floodgates opened with England bagging five more goals in the first spell.
First with Mead turning and shooting in her second and then Hemp heading home the hosts’ fifth around the 18th minute and her first senior England goal.
Mead nabbed a hat-trick as England went six up before Ella Toone walloped in England’s seventh close to half-time
Hemp managed to head in her second before the whistle.
The second half saw no let-up as White scored to seal her hat-trick before Stanway netted a pen to make it ten goals after a foul on Mead.
Goals from Jess Carter and Beth England made it 12 before Jill Scott scored in the 67th minute.
An Alessia Russo goal and a second for Blues ace England followed by Hemp’s hat-trick strike saw the hosts go 16-0 up.
A Jordan Nobbs goal, followed by a fourth for Hemp and two more from Russo saw the Lionesses secure a storming 20-0 victory.

Newcastle 1 Norwich 1: Canaries snatch late equaliser in relegation derby as winless Toon play 80 MINUTES with ten men
TEEMU PUKKI denied 10-man Newcastle a first win of the season after Callum Wilson had breathed life into Toon’s survival bid.
Defender Ciaran Clark’s red card for hauling down Pukki when in on goal just nine minutes in made it a mountain to climb for Eddie Howe’s side.GettyTeemu Pukki smashed in a late equaliser for Norwich[/caption] ReutersHe was earlier tripped by Ciaran Clark – who saw red for the challenge[/caption]
But Wilson’s penalty 61 minutes in after Billy Gilmour’s handball set the Magpies on course for their first victory in over six months.
Tim Krul got a hand on Wilson’s spot kick but it went in off the bar and Newcastle’s season finally had lift-off – 55 days after the Saudi-led takeover.
And they were looking good until Martin Dubravka flapped a cross into the path of sub Dimitris Giannoulis, who crossed to Pukki – with the Finn lashing into the top corner.
A draw with ten men for 80 minutes can hardly been seen as a bad result.
But when you’re in the mire like Newcastle, it doesn’t help.
Beat Burnley on Saturday and there may just be hope for Howe’s side – otherwise it looks a long way back for the rock-bottom Mags.Most read in Football JOB FOR ROB Italy's Mancini 'a shock Man Utd manager target and interested in Prem return' 'FEARSOME STRENGTH' Liverpool and Arsenal legend Ray Kennedy dies aged 70 after illness GREAL CLOSE Grealish was 'really close' to Man Utd move which sparked £100m release clause WORKING IT OUT Man Utd's Rangnick blocked from automatic visa as work below required level RIP SKY BLUES HERO Tributes paid to Coventry FA Cup legend John Sillett who has died at 85 RONAL-D'OH Ronaldo may be banned from driving £17m supercars to training under Rangnick
With Newcastle defenders Jamaal Lascelles and Matt Ritchie suspended, Clark and ex-Canaries star Jamal Lewis were drafted in, with Javier Manquillo at right-back replacing Emil Krafth.
As Norrwich went in search of their first ever Prem win on a Tuesday, Lukas Rupp and Christos Tzolis were in for Mathias Normann and Milot Rashica.
Howe emerged from the tunnel to a stirring welcome for his first game in the home dugout, but St James’ Park was stunned into silence after Clark’s brain dead dismissal just nine minutes in.
The veteran centre-back made a right hash of a simple clearance, playing it straight into the approaching Teemu Pukki.
With Clark, 32, off balance and playing catch up the Finn was in on goal until Clark lost the plot and hauled him down 25 yards out.
As Mags icon Alan Shearer said: “What is he doing? Let him go. It’s so early that if he scores, there’s still time to come back. A crazy, stupid decision”.PACallum Wilson opened the scoring for the 10-man Magpies[/caption] PAThe skipper notched from the penalty spot after a Billy Gilmour handball[/caption]
After Martin Dubravka leapt to his right to deny Billy Gilmour from the resulting free-kick, Howe’s side sat back, dug in and tried to hit Norwich on the break.
And up to half-time they did it with ease, with the toothless Canaries unable to take charge and turn the screw.
Josh Sargent’s back post effort was brilliantly blocked by Lewis, but other than that, they were bang-average given the advantage.
Newcastle needed help after the break – and the crowd responded.
‘Eddie Howe’s black and white army’ rang around the stadium, the players were galvanised, and they had the most crucial goal of their season 61 minutes in.
Joelinton had just seen a penalty shout turned away before Fernandez nodded Jonjo Shelvey’s corner off Gilmour’s raised arm.ReutersEddie Howe was in the St James’ Park dugout for the first time[/caption] ReutersNorwich spoilt the Toon party with their late equaliser[/caption]
Ref Andy Madley didnt give it initially but – after what seemed an age – he finally went over to his VAR monitor and pointed to the spot.
Wilson hit it to his right and Tim Krul got a decent hand on it, but he could only deflect it in off the bar.
St James’ was absolutely bouncing now as the locals sensed their first win since the last day of last season.
Dean Smith’s side were shell-shocked, and while they had all the ball and territory, Newcastle were comfortable.
Until the 79th minute that is, when Pukki lashed into the top corner.
Martin Dubravka could only flap a deep cross into the path of unmarked sub Dimitris Giannoulis on the left, who played inside for Pukki to fire a thunderbolt volley past the Slovakian.

POSH students claim that their university experience is crumbling — because their college does not have a pastry chef.
Undergraduates at Cambridge University’s Corpus Christi College no longer get handmade artisan breakfasts after kitchen staff walked out.Posh Cambridge students claim their university experience is crumbling – as there’s no PASTRY CHEF Sources revealed the departure of veteran catering manager Chris Le-Vien, pictured, in February triggered the downward spiral
Hungry toffs now slink off to other colleges for their morning grub as brekkie has been axed altogether. Food quality has also taken a battering, with horrified students confronted with cakes bought from shops.
The college — once home to Downton Abbey star Hugh Bonneville — has seen several catering staff leave, including a MasterChef quarter-finalist, in a conflict with management.
One student complained that it feels like a “loss of the Cambridge experience”.
A source said college management had “prioritised cost over quality” and “the freezers were stuffed”.
They added: “Fresh ingredients were replaced with bulk-bought food, cakes were shop-bought, and vegetables were pre-cut.”
Posh “formals” — black-tie gatherings — will also no longer take place at the college, founded in 1352.

But sources revealed the departure of veteran catering manager Chris Le-Vien in February triggered the downward spiral.
He was said to have been made a “scapegoat” after a series of formals last Christmas, when indoor mixing between households was banned.
Of 13 cooks at the start of summer only three remain, according to the university’s Varsity newspaper.
Mr Le-Vien was approached for comment. The college declined to do so.
A BOY allegedly tortured to death by his dad and his girlfriend “knew he was going to die” but “no-one listened”, a court was told.
Six-year-old Arthur Labinjo-Hughes subjected to “incomprehensible” suffering in the days and weeks running up to his death, jurors heard.BPMThomas Hughes denies murdering Arthur[/caption] Emma Tustin allegedly carried out the assault
Arthur’s dad, Thomas Hughes, 29, and 32-year-old Emma Tustin, his partner, are on trial jointly accused of murder, after the boy suffered an “unsurvivable brain injury” in June, 2020.
In closing speeches at Coventry Crown Court, her barrister Mary Prior said Arthur repeatedly expressed fears for his safety soon after he turned five, Birmingham Live Reports.
“When Arthur was six years, four months old he still knew he was going to die, he was saying ‘dad is going to kill me’, saying ‘dad is going to throw me out the window’,” she said.
“He was describing his fears. He was describing them for well over a year and nobody, nobody listened to Arthur.
“Not the school, not the GP, not the officers, not his family. No-one listened.
“He was going to die and he was going to die because Thomas Hughes was in charge of Arthur’s life and Arthur’s life consisted of nothing other than misery.”
Prior told the court Tustin “let that little boy suffer and she accepts that, and she will pay a heavy price for that”.Most read in News EVERY LITTLE yelps Woman horrified after finding dress in Tesco with alarming Post-it note ON THE TABLE Boris admits he cannot rule out fresh lockdown as UK Omicron cases reach 22 TREAD THE FINE Vaccinated adults face £10,000 fine if they break Omicron Covid rules SICK NOTE I was left shaking after my Amazon package came with a sickening note attached APOCALYPSE NEIGH Shocking moment raging horse savages a SHEEP to death in rare footage WHITE WEEKEND Four days of snow on way after heavy rain and gales today with flood warnings
But Hughes’ defence barrister Bernard Richmond told jurors Tustin was “a predator” and Arthur her prey, “because he had something she wanted – Thomas Hughes”.
Mr Richmond said Hughes was “stupid” but not a murderer and there “nothing to suggest” he had given Ms Tustin permission to harm his son.
The court previously heard Hughes made a number of threats towards his son, including to “put him six feet under”, and had also sent Tustin messages such as “just end him”.
It is alleged that Tustin carried out the fatal assault while having sole care of Arthur.
She then fetched her mobile phone immediately afterwards to take a photograph of the youngster as he lay dying in the hallway of her home in Cranmore Road, Solihull, West Midlands.
Tustin is accused of “dressing the scene” to make it appear as if Arthur had inflicted his own injuries.
Jurors were told that the 130 areas of bruising found on Arthur’s body at post-mortem equated to “nearly a bruise for every day of lockdown”.

Marilyn Manson pictured in Berlin on belated honeymoon with wife Lindsay when cops raided his home amid sex assault case
MARILYN Manson was in Berlin on a belated honeymoon with wife
Lindsay Usich when cops raided his home early Monday morning amid a sex assault investigation, The Sun can exclusively reveal.
As reported, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department confirmed that Special Victims Unit detectives went to the star’s property in the Hollywood area with a search warrant.Lindsay UsichLindsay shared photographs with the fan account showing the pair on their honeymoon[/caption] Lindsay UsichManson could be seen all in black leaning against a wall on a romantic day out[/caption]
TMZ claimed cops forced entry into the residence and seized media storage units, including hard drives, which will be reviewed before the case is submitted to the Los Angeles County District Attorney.
The 52-year-old shock rocker was not home at the time of the raid and police told The Sun a full media statement would be released on Tuesday.
Now, a popular Manson fan account has shared three photographs, allegedly sent from Lindsay, 37, of the couple looking happy and relaxed while vacationing in Berlin this week.
One features them beaming in a rare selfie with Manson make-up free, another shows the singer standing against a wall of graffiti, while a third includes Lindsay posing in a public park.
The Instagram account @colonelkurtz99 wrote: “Marilyn Manson and his wife Lindsay are on a belated honeymoon in Berlin, and she dropped these photos in my DMs today with this message for their fans and supporters: ‘Thank you all so much for the continued support and for not giving up on us or on the truth.'”
The same social media account shared exclusive images of Manson and Lindsay at Kanye West’s Sunday Service earlier this month, showing them posing together dressed all in black.Most read in Celebrity SHERI SMASH Shock pics show Sheridan Smith's Range Rover's smoking wreckage after crash LITTLE MINX Little Mix star Leigh-Anne Pinnock goes knickerless in VERY daring outfit no love lost Katie Price says she 'hates' her kids' dads Peter & Kieran in shock attack MIXED UP Little Mix's Leigh-Anne Pinnock in tears on GMB as she sends message to her mum 'SO PAINFUL' Vicky Pattison discusses medical scare as doctors find 4cm cyst on her ovary IN A TWIST Stacey Solomon mortified after exposing KNICKERS on shopping trip in epic gaffe
The Sun has reached out to the couple for comment.
Manson and Lindsay, a photographer, painter and model, have been dating since 2012 and quietly tied the knot in 2020 during lockdown.
The owner of the account, who did not wish to share their real name, said the images were sent to her on Monday and defended Manson, telling The Sun: “Lindsay has been with him for many years now and knows he’s not an abusive man. I trust her view of him over the inconsistent and incentivized claims of his accusers.
“As for why she shares photos with fans on my Instagram page – I’d imagine it’s because we are one of the few places where one can find the other side of this story – the perspective that no-one else in the media is paying attention to.”
The sheriff’s department said in February that its detectives had begun investigating Manson – whose legal name is Brian Hugh Warner – over reports of domestic violence between 2009 and 2011 in West Hollywood, where he is believed to have lived in a different home.
Actresses Evan Rachel Wood and Esme Bianco are among those who have publicly come forward after alleged violent relationships with the star many years ago.
Back in February, Evan claimed her ex-fiancé “horrifically abused her for years” and said she was desperate to “expose this dangerous man.”SHOCKING ALLEGATIONS
Game of Thrones star Esme, who is also suing Manson, previously claimed the rock star had tied her down and whipped her, electrocuted her and cut her with a knife.
In a statement previously posted on Instagram, he said: “Obviously, my life and my art have long been magnets for controversy, but these recent claims about me are horrible distortions of reality.
“My intimate relationships have always been entirely consensual with like-minded partners. Regardless of how — and why — others are now choosing to misrepresent the past, that is the truth.”
The Sun exclusively revealed earlier this month that the controversial hitmaker sold his most recent home in the Hollywood Hills for $1.835million – banking $750K on the sale.
The Beautiful People singer put the property on the market in October and he officially offloaded the house on November 16 for $85K more than the asking price of $1.75million.
The listing was held by Jon Grauman and Feroz Taj of The Agency.
Manson will be glad to have made money on the sale of the property as his career has taken a hit amid the scandal.
He has been dropped by his label, Loma Vista Recordings, who released a statement, telling Variety: “Due to these concerning developments, we have also decided not to work with Marilyn Manson on any future projects.”Lindsay UsichStunning Lindsay took a stroll with her husband, 52, in a local park[/caption] Lindsay UsichThe couple have been together for many years but only tied the knot in 2020[/caption] ReutersCops searched a home close to West Hollywood amid Manson’s sex abuse allegations[/caption]
Mom of missing TikToker Lateche Norris, 20, says daughter’s ‘addict’ boyfriend is ‘possessive and broke her phone’
A MISSING TikToker’ mom said her daughter’s boyfriend “showed possessive traits” and is an addict who relapsed, which sparked the fight before she vanished.
Lateche Norris‘ mom, Cheryl Walker, told the US Sun that Joey Smith broke at least four of her daughter’s phones during arguments since May and followed her when she tried to cool off after a fight.TikToker Lateche Norris, who just turned 20, went missing on November 5 in San Diego Lateche Norris/Facebook Norris had a fight with her boyfriend Joey Smith (pictured) before she disappearedCheryl Walker/Facebook Missing Person flyer for Lateche Norris created by her mother Cheryl WalkerFacebook/Cheryl Walker
“He always followed her around. He wouldn’t do anything or go anywhere without her,” Walker said in an exclusive interview on Tuesday – more than three weeks after Norris went missing.
“He’s an addict and went out to San Diego to get help,” she said. “But he wasn’t sober and was living on the streets.”
On Halloween – just days after her 20th birthday – Norris travelled from her Indiana home to San Diego to help Smith, 25, according to Walker.
“She told me, ‘He’s going to kill himself, and I can’t have that on my conscience,'” the missing TikToker’s mom said.
Norris landed on the West Coast on November 1 and uploaded pictures and videos of California to her social media accounts, but her posts slowed to a trickle, Walker said.
On November 4, Norris called her mom using Facebook messenger from her phone.Most read in The Sun BENEFIT BOOST Universal Credit £1k boost to hit bank accounts TOMORROW in Sun campaign win XMAS BOOST All adults to get booster jabs by January as Boris recruits Army to save Xmas PRESSING TIMES PM to hold 4pm press conference TODAY as he fights to save Xmas from Omicron health scare Strictly dancer in emergency hospital dash as she's supported by stars SHERI SMASH HORROR Sheridan Smith in high-speed crash as she smashes Range Rover into tree EXTRA BENEFIT Full list of new benefit rates revealed ahead of rise - how much you’ll get
Her mom explained that was a backup phone that didn’t have cell service and required WiFi to do anything.
The next day, Norris and Smith made frantic calls to Walker saying they got into a fight.
“He would always do that. Every time they got into an argument, he called me asking, ‘Where’s Lateche? What’s she doing?'”
That phone call was last time Walker heard from her daughter or her daughter’s boyfriend.
After that, all her social media accounts went dark.RED FLAGS WHEN MEETING SMITH
Norris first met Smith in April in Indiana and they bonded over tattoo artistry, Walker said.
“That’s what she wanted to do, so it was a conversation starter,” Walker said. “And he was helping her improve her technique.”
A couple weeks later, she brought him home to meet her parents and introduced him as her boyfriend.
She was 19 at the time, and he was 25.
“That was a bold move,” Walker said. “My husband is very protective over his girls, and she just showed up at our house with this 25-year-old man and said he was her boyfriend.
“It told me then that she was completely mesmerized by him.”
Warning signs flashed throughout the first meeting, the worried mom told The Sun.
“He spoke really fast like he was on speed. He goes in and out of the house every 10 minutes for a smoke. My husband asked him if he like meth. Of course he said no, and Lateche was livid, but I’m glad he did,” Walker said.
“There were other times when he did things like carry her purse. It was cute, but it was all a cover. It was an appearance,” she said.
“Lateche is emphatic and strong willed. She’s an advocate. She go after the bully,” Walker said.
“She saw Joey as having anxiety, but it was possessive,” Norris’ mom said. “She couldn’t get away from him.”BOOTS ON THE GROUND
Walker and her husband have been in San Diego posting signs and searching the areas where they knew she had been.
But they aren’t getting a lot of help from San Diego police, Walker said.
“The police told us they don’t believe she’s at risk,” she said.
But social media and their friends and family have been helping and sharing contact information.
One of Norris’ friends started the hashtag #FindLateche, which has been used on Instagram, TikTok, Facebook and Twitter, and the Facebook group “Lateche Norris Missing San Diego – Official Search and Updates” for tips.
They also started a GoFundMe to help with travel costs as the family follows leads.
Anyone with information on Norris’ whereabouts is encouraged to email [email protected], or call the San Diego Police Department at 619-531-2446 and reference case number 21-501043.Family and friends started the #FindLateche on all social media platforms Lateche Norris/Facebook We pay for your stories!

Many people have posted photos from the inauguration ceremony in the Barbados, claiming Rihanna has a visible baby bump.
This is not the first time rumors have been sparked regarding the singer and fashion mogul.
In 2019, rumors began to swirl that the star was pregnant.
She addressed the rumors in an interview with Vogue, saying “I don’t think about stuff like that. But, I don’t know…God’s plan.”
“I look forward to all of the pregnancy rumors after this interview,” she continued.
Following the Met Gala in 2021, many fans also claimed Rihanna was hiding a pregnancy, due to her oversized ensemble.Most read in Celebrity SHERI SMASH Shock pics show Sheridan Smith's Range Rover's smoking wreckage after crash LITTLE MINX Little Mix star Leigh-Anne Pinnock goes knickerless in VERY daring outfit no love lost Katie Price says she 'hates' her kids' dads Peter & Kieran in shock attack MIXED UP Little Mix's Leigh-Anne Pinnock in tears on GMB as she sends message to her mum 'SO PAINFUL' Vicky Pattison discusses medical scare as doctors find 4cm cyst on her ovary IN A TWIST Stacey Solomon mortified after exposing KNICKERS on shopping trip in epic gaffe How long have Rihanna and A$AP Rocky been together?
Rumors began to swirl that Rihanna and A$AP Rocky were a thing back in 2018 when the two were spotted sitting close together at the Louis Vuitton show for Paris Fashion Week.
The following year, Rihanna shared a photo of her and Rocky at the British Fashion Awards, captioning her photo: “And thank you @asaprocky for representing us on the carpet and always being so supportive of @Fenty.”
At the end of 2019, Rihanna was seen in attendance at an A$AP Rocky concert in Sweden.
The two were spotted together again at the start of 2020, attending a concert together in New York.
In February of that year, an anonymous source told Us Weekly that the two were “hanging out and hooking up.”
“They’re having fun and have always had chemistry,” the source claimed.
The two did a photoshoot together for the debut of Rihanna’s Fenty skincare line, released in July of 2020.
Rocky then interviewed Rihanna for Vogue, in a video segment where the two were seen laughing and joking the whole time.
“I appreciate you, like for real, for real,” he said in the video.
By the end of 2020, Rihanna and Rocky had been spotted together on numerous occasions, even taking a vacation together in the Barbados.
While on vacation, the two were photographed kissing on a boat, seemingly confirming their relationship.
In a 2021 interview with GQ, Rocky referred to Rihanna as “my lady” and the “love of my life.”
“So much better when you got ‘the one.’ She amounts to probably, like, a million of the other ones,” he said.
“I think when you know, you know. She’s the one.”
In September of 2021, the couple made their red carpet debut at the Met Gala.Rihanna was named a national hero of the BarbadosWPA Rota Who else has Rihanna dated?
Rihanna has dated numerous high-profile men throughout the years.
From 2007 until 2009, Rihanna dated Chris Brown. The two broke up after an incident when Brown allegedly physically assaulted her.
The Barbadian singer went on to have an on-again, off-again relationship with rapper Drake, with the two seemingly ending on a bad note.
In a 2018 interview with Vogue, Rihanna said of Drake: “We don’t have a friendship now, but we’re not enemies either. It is what it is.”
Rihanna briefly dated Travis Scott in 2015, but the romance fizzled out shortly after it began.
She dated Saudi businessman, Hassan Jameel, for three years before the couple split in January of 2020.We pay for your stories!

Jim Bob Duggar slammed for saying he’s ‘pro-family’ in Senate race after defending son Josh in child pornography trial
A CAMPAIGN flyer for Jim Bob Duggar is being ridiculed online for claims that the Counting On star is “pro-family” – just as his son’s child pornography trial gets underway.
Jury selection for Josh Duggar’s trial began on Tuesday, while his father is in the middle of a heated contest for an Arkansas Senate seat.Jim Bob is being slammed for his recent campaign flyer SplashJosh’s child pornography trial is now underway[/caption]
Jim Bob’s latest campaign flyer promotes the 56-year-old Republican’s values, highlighting the fact that he is: “Pro-Faith, Pro-Family and Pro-Freedom.”
But some Reddit users are finding those claims hard to swallow, especially in light of his family’s well-documented current struggles.
While sharing a picture of the campaign note, the original poster wrote: I don’t know whether to throw up or not.
In the comments section, others backed him up, with arguments like: “Pro-family as long as you’re not his daughter!” and “Pro-freedom as long as you’re not a woman.”
One commenter lashed out at Jim-Bob: “The pig is not pro-family. He is pro-let your son molest your daughters and do nothing about it. He needs to spend some time behind bars.”
Another recommended returning the flyer to its sender: “Mail it back to the TTH or his campaign headquarters with a note stating you are pro-prosecuting pedophiles and anti-protecting child molesters.”Most read in The Sun BENEFIT BOOST Universal Credit £1k boost to hit bank accounts TOMORROW in Sun campaign win XMAS BOOST All adults to get booster jabs by January as Boris recruits Army to save Xmas PRESSING TIMES PM to hold 4pm press conference TODAY as he fights to save Xmas from Omicron health scare Strictly dancer in emergency hospital dash as she's supported by stars SHERI SMASH HORROR Sheridan Smith in high-speed crash as she smashes Range Rover into tree EXTRA BENEFIT Full list of new benefit rates revealed ahead of rise - how much you’ll get
Still another speculated about the timing, and real reason behind Jim Bob’s office run: “Why did it take seeing ‘Paid for by Jim Bob for Arkansas State Senate’ for me to realize the entire point of this Senate run is to launder money for the trial? Grifters gonna grift.
And one person just wanted it all over: “This clown had better lose!”JOSH’S TRIAL
Josh Duggar’s child pornographt trial is now officially underway.
The former reality TV star on “19 Kids and Counting” was charged earlier this year with two counts of downloading and possessing child pornography and arrived at court with his wife, Anna Duggar, on Tuesday.
Josh, 33, has pleaded not guilty.
He was accused of possessing sick images of child pornography that were “the worst of the worst” that authorities had ever seen.
It has been said that Josh’s trial could last until December 3. If found guilty, he faces up to 20 years in prison.
Jim Bob had to take the stand in an Arkansas court Monday to testify on behalf of the prosecution in an evidentiary hearing.
However, he repeatedly claimed he couldn’t remember the details of Josh’s past admissions that he had touched the victims, who were called Jane Does 1 to 4, People reported.
In 2015, Jim Bob had told police that Josh, 33, had confessed to touching underage girls, including Jill and his sister Jessa, in the family home between 2002 and 2003.
According to a 2006 police report, which Arkansas police later destroyed, Jim Bob first told cops in 2002 that he had molested young victims while they were asleep in the Duggar family home.
But at the hearing, Jim Bob said he couldn’t recall the details of the admissions from his oldest son.JIM BOB’S RACE
Jim Bob’s involvement in the trial could put a cloud over his run for Arkansas State Senate, but the Counting On alum promises he won’t “shrink away” from politics despite his “family problems.”
Last month, Jim Bob announced announced his candidacy for Arkansas State Senate District 7 seat, according to Arkansas Democrat Gazette.
Now, the father of 19 revealed he won’t be backing down or staying silent in his fight for the seat and will be pushing through “crises” his family’s dealing with.
He wrote: “Like so many other families, we too have faced crises, difficulties, and heartbreak.”
“…They say because our family has faced problems we should shrink away—this is why they are often so relentlessly unkind, but we cannot sit on the sidelines during a time when one of America’s most important battles is taking place.
“We are devoted to doing our part and making a difference for our children and grandchildren.”RedditJim Bob’s new campaign flyer[/caption] Social Media - Refer to sourceJim Bob is running for Arkansas State Senate[/caption] SWNSJosh Duggar and his wife Anna arrive at John Paul Hammerschmidt Federal Building, Fayetteville, Arkansas for his trial[/caption] We pay for your stories!

THE new Beatles documentary has been hit with a woke warning — about the Fab Four smoking.
Viewers say they are baffled by the alert which appears on the Get Back film, showing on Disney+.The new Beatles documentary has been hit with a woke warning — about the Fab Four smoking. The alert which appears on the Get Back film, showing on Disney+.
The three episodes of director Peter Jackson’s doc each open with a warning about “explicit language, mature themes and smoking”.
One fan posted online: “I liked the warning on Get Back… SMOKING.
“On that basis, Casablanca should be cancelled.”
And one viewer pointed out the smoking alert seems odd — as members of the band were self-confessed drug-users at the time.

THE BRIGHTEST comet of 2021 is heading our way and it should be visible in time for some Christmas stargazing.
Astronomers have high hopes that Comet Leonard will be the best of the year and you may be able to spot it without binoculars.Bayfordbury Observatory ( University of Hertfordshire)Comet Leonard was first spotted in January 2021[/caption] TwitterThe comet has its own Twitter account[/caption] How to see Christmas Comet Leonard
The comet should be closest to Earth and super bright on December 12.
If you want to start looking out for it sooner, it’s best viewed about 90 minutes before sunrise and above the horizon in early December.
Some astronomers have already been photographing it through telescopes.
If you’re in North America, mark your calendar for December 14 as that should be the best time for you to spot Comet Leonard on the early evening horizon.Most read in Tech ROBOT REVOLUTION I shopped at the first till-free Sainsbury's where you NEVER queue ROCKY HORROR Nasa says 1,000-FOOT asteroid will break into Earth's orbit in days YULE BE SORRY!

Unfortunately for stargazers in the UK, it may be more difficult to spot around the time of its closest approach.
This is due to its low position on the south-eastern horizon before twilight.
UK viewers are better looking in the mornings around 4am GMT before December 10.
By December 14, stargazers in North America and the Southern Hemisphere can start looking for the comet above the horizon after sunset.
On December 17, they’ll be a chance for some stargazers to spot it just below Venus in the evening sky.
Some lucky viewers will even be able to see the comet on Christmas Day on the southwest horizon after sunset.
Comet Leonard has its own Twitter account, which can update you with its current movements.
The shooting star has been on a 35,000 year journey from deep space to reach us.
Next month will be one of your only chances to see it up close.
There is a possibility that the comet could disintegrate to almost nothing before it reaches its closest approach to the Sun on January 3, 2022.
That’s why you may want to start looking for it sooner rather than later, even if it means getting a pair of binoculars.
You’ll also need to look at a time when the sky is clear and be in a place with very little light pollution.
After Comet Leonard visits the Sun, it will head back into deep space.Is Comet Leonard a ‘Doomsday comet’?
A bible scholar previously claimed to have decoded scriptures that reveal Comet Leonard will imminently herald the Apocalypse — as it’s set to arrive around Christmas time.
David S. Heeren, who has spent 16 years studying ‘holy passages’, claims to have found 200 clues that the period leading to the Second Coming and the end times will be marked by the space phenomena.
Heeren’s investigation, which he outlines in his book High Signs, began after reading the text of Isaiah, which depicts great visions given to the prophet.
During his research he noted scores of images of comets which came before major events.Find out more about science
