Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson Have Reportedly Split, and People Are Not OK

The epic saga that has been Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson’s coupledom, from whirlwind start to surprise engagement to shared apartment to pet pig, has consumed the public’s attention for the past few months. But alas, it seems this roller coaster has reached its end for now: On Sunday evening, TMZ reported that the couple had called it quits. We’re so sorry to be the ones to break it to you.

Citing “sources close to the former couple,” TMZ said that the two split up this weekend, “with both parties acknowledging that it simply was not the right time for their relationship to take off.” People released its own report soon after, with an unnamed source close to Grande saying: “It was way too much too soon… It’s not shocking to anyone.” Neither Grande nor Davidson have confirmed or responded to the rumors.

Grande has been taking time off for her mental health in the weeks following the death of ex-boyfriend Mac Miller, canceling performances and appearances. In possibly related news (though, unconfirmed by the couple), Davidson was photographed on October 9, and it appeared that he had covered up a Grande-inspired tattoo on his neck.

The two had met on the set of Saturday Night Live back in March 2016, when Grande was performing, and dated other people for two years (Grade was with Miller, Davidson with Cazzie David.) In May of this year, both confirmed they had split from their significant others, and rumors that they were dating started to appear. On June 20, they announced they were engaged.

Simone Biles Called Out USA Gymnastics President for an Anti-Kaepernick Tweet

Simone Biles, record-breaking champion of the vault, is fresh off selection camp in preparation for the Doha, Qatar world championships—but that doesn’t mean she’s not keeping an eye on what people in her sport are talking about. On Saturday, she took to Twitter to call out a tweet by Mary Bono, a former Republican congresswoman from California who had just named the interim president and CEO of USA Gymnastics the day prior, in which she criticized Nike for its affiliation to Colin Kaepernick, the former NFL player who famously knelt during the national anthem to protest police brutality and racism.

Biles had apparently been scrolling through to see what her sport’s new leader was up to (or had been up to) and noticed a tweet from Bono dating back to September, right after Nike launched its “Just Do It” campaign featuring Kaepernick. It consisted of a photo, presumably of Bono, marking out the Nike swoosh on a pair of shoes, in protest of the ad. The champion gymnast wasn’t about to let that moment slide: Biles issued an epic tweet of her own that resurfaced Bono’s original social message.

mouth drop,” Biles replied to the tweet. “don’t worry, it’s not like we needed a smarter usa gymnastics president or any sponsors or anything”

Biles was presumably referring to past USA Gymnastics leadership—specifically, past president Steve Penny, who was a key figure in the Larry Nassar sexual abuse scandal that rocked the gymnastics world earlier this year and was named in a damning ESPN report as one of the leaders who allegedly helped to cover up the rampant abuse. (She herself is one of the abuse survivors.) Plus, Biles has been sponsored by Nike.

A few hours after Biles’ response, Bono deleted the original tweet and issued an apology on the social media platform: “I regret the post and respect everyone’s views & fundamental right to express them. This doesn’t reflect how I will approach my position @USAGym I will do everything I can to help build, w/ the community, an open, safe & positive environment,” she wrote.

Bono also acknowledged that her Tweet—now a topic of conversation—wouldn’t exactly disappear: “Hey all, I know the Tweet will live on but have taken it down to move the focus to all I hope to accomplish on behalf of a great sport & those who are dedicated to it… I look forward to telling my gymnastics story, my vision for the future of the sport and why I wanted the job.”

Given that Bono’s tweet carried an implication of disdain toward people who have been victimized, it’s not a great look for a president coming in to carry forward an organization and team just recovering from sexual abuse scandal. A perfect 10 for Biles, though—as per usual.

Meghan Markle Is Reportedly Taking Her Best Friend on Her Royal Tour of Australia

Meghan Markle is all about her girl squad, even when she’s traveling across the world for a major royal tour. According to reports, the Duchess of Sussex has decided to bring her best friend and stylist Jessica Mulroney on the road with her next week when she and Prince Harry kick off a 16-day visit to Australia, Fiji, Tonga, and New Zealand—because even a duchess needs her BFF nearby.

The Daily Mail and The Sunday Times both report that Mulroney will be on hand with her husband, Ben, in an “unofficial capacity”—reportedly meaning they’ll be paying their own way and kind of just casually tagging along on the royal tour, NBD. They’re expected to fly from Toronto to meet Prince Harry and Markle when the tour launches at the Sydney Opera House on Tuesday.

Mulroney has often styled Markle for important events, and with the amount of stops and photo ops Markle will be doing on this tour, it could be handy to have a little casual behind-the-scenes advice in the style department, since she might have as many as three outfit changes in a single day. Mulroney likely provided her expertise for Markle’s engagement party last November, and might have also been behind the beige trench coat from House of Nonie that the Duchess of Sussex wore to the Nelson Mandela Centenary Exhibit in London in July.

The two have reportedly been friends since they met in 2011, back when Markle was on Suits (Mulroney is based in Toronto, where the show was shot). Since becoming buds, they’ve been photographed together a number of times, and Mulroney was one of the guests at Markle’s wedding in May.

She’s also one of the duchess’s core group of friends, who also include power women like tennis legend Serena Williams and actress Priyanka Chopra. They’re so close that when Markle was planning her wedding, Mulroney was rumored to be one of the friends she was considering as a maid of honor.

Although Markle didn’t end up going with anyone as a maid of honor (how would you choose, with that crowd?), it’s clear the two are still super tight—and this tour sounds like it’s going to be a girls trip to remember.

Lili Reinhart and Cole Sprouse Just Beat the ‘Riverdale’ Cast at Their Own Trolling Game

Possiblymaybebut-most-likely-definitely couple Lili Reinhart and Cole Sprouse are at it again with the Instagram PDA, this time with Reinhart posting a shirtless photo of Sprouse with the caption, “I hope you don’t mind.”

The public record has shown that this is usually the part when one of their Riverdale co-stars swoops in to brilliantly troll the two of them with a sarcastic comment or question about their relationship status—but this time, Sprouse beat them to the punch. He quickly responded to Reinhart’s photo by writing, “Are you guys dating?”

Well done, Sprouse. This is almost as good as the time his co-stars Casey Cott and KJ Apa recreated his birthday tribute to Reinhart by using a hilarious shirtless ‘gram of Apa and Sprouse’s same caption: “Both the birthday and my gift. My little muse, have a good day my love.”

Or the time Camila Mendes dug up a meme from the movie Ghost that read, “when you third wheel so much you basically become part of the relationship,” and captioned it, “@lilireinhart @colesprouse we’re such a cute couple.”

While Reinhart and Sprouse have never actually told the world they’re dating, the relationship has been pretty much confirmed through all of their social media flirting and their recent appearance together at the Met Gala. Still, Reinhart opened up on Tumblr about wanting to keep her private life away from so much mindless scrutiny.

“It’s horrifying how invested some people are in my love life. Emphasis on ‘my.’ It is mine. It is private,” she wrote. “If a stranger’s love life is causing you anger, frustration or anxiety…please reevaluate your priorities.”

It looks like the Riverdale cast hasn’t jumped in on Sprouse’s latest Instagram hijinks, but if we know anything about them, it’s pretty likely they’ll come up with some hilarious comebacks. Sprouse may have won this round, but we’ll just have to see who is quickest on the trolling draw next time around.

Princess Eugenie’s Official Wedding Portraits Are Here, and They’re Magical

Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank tied the knot on Friday with a gorgeous ceremony that reignited the world’s royal wedding fever. And if you thought that things would cool down now that the festivities are over, think again: The couple is keeping all the regal excitement going by releasing their official wedding portraits, shot by photographer Alex Bramall.

The photos include Eugenie and Brooksbank posing with their families and their cadre of page boys and bridesmaids in Windsor’s regal drawing room—images that aren’t unlike the family portraits from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s big day just a few months ago. They show off the full effect of the long, flowing train on Princess Eugenie’s show-stopping bridal gown, designed by Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos. The gown made headlines for its deep, V-shape neckline in the back that Princess Eugenie specifically chose to highlight her spinal surgery scar in a gesture of solidarity with others who have or had scoliosis.

Bramall also snapped a black-and-white image of the couple sharing an intimate moment together in the Scottish State Coach after their carriage procession. Finally, a fourth image shows the newlyweds at the Royal Lodge for a private dinner, some time after Princess Eugenie had switched into her sweeping blush-toned reception gown designed by Zac Posen.

“It is an honor and a privilege to be invited to photograph Princess Eugenie and Jack on this most special of days,” Bramall said in a statement.

It’s not the first time he’s shot Princess Eugenie: He actually took some beautiful images of her for a spread in Harper’s Bazaar back in 2016.

The royal affair came, of course, with a royal guest list that featured Markle (who wore Givenchy) and Prince Harry, Kate Middleton (who opted for her go-to designer Alexander McQueen ), Cara Delevingne, and more. This might be the last royal wedding for now, but at least the pictures will keep everyone going for a while longer.

Princess Eugenie Broke Royal Tradition With Her Second Wedding Dress

ICYMI, Princess Eugenie married Jack Brooksbank on Friday (October 12), and by all accounts, the second Royal Wedding looked pretty incredible from start to finish. For the actual ceremony, she wore a stunning collared gown by designed by Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos, which was full of poignant details, like embroidery representing places that are close to her heart (a shamrock for Ireland, for example) and an open back that showed off a scar from a childhood scoliosis operation. But it wouldn’t be a Royal Wedding without an outfit change—and Princess Eugenie’s second dress broke tradition in a big way.

For the couple’s evening wedding reception, Princess Eugenie opted for a custom gown by an American designer, Zac Posen—a surprising choice, given it’s customary for British royals to wear British designers for such occasions. (Meghan Markle changed into a Stella McCartney ensemble, while Kate Middleton chose a second Alexander McQueen design by Sarah Burton for their own post-ceremony festivities.) That wasn’t the only way she deviated from tradition: Instead of classic white or ivory, her second dress was blush-toned. And the result is gorgeous.

Posen’s known for his romantic, ethereal designs—and this one was no different: Princess Eugenie’s dress was made from plissé silk (from a British mill, naturally), drawn into elegant, almost Art Deco pleats from neck to waist before cascading down to sweep the floor. It’s Old Hollywood meets royal regality—and it’s stunning.

According to the Palace, the blush color is a reference to an English rose. And, because she’s Princess Eugenie of York, there’s a White Rose of York embroidered on the back and shoulder of the dress where the cape is. Truly, it’s all in the details.

Alex Rodriguez Found a Photo of Jennifer Lopez He Had Autographed 20 Years Ago, and It’s a National Treasure

Lovebirds Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez are clearly obsessed with each other. (See: all their coordinated outfits, their adorable public affection at award shows.) How do we find a love like theirs in our lifetimes, which are but a blink of the eye in the course of human history? The answer, apparently, is fate.

On Friday, A.Rod posted quite the throwback on his Instagram. It took us back twenty years ago, when an already-major pop star known as Jenny From the Block autographed a glam shot for a young, up-and-coming baseball player by the name of Alexander Emmanuel Rodriguez. We can only assume that the shimmering wattage of Jenny’s skin illuminated served as an unassuming beacon of destiny. And (J.)Lo, a love was born.

“#TBT to almost 20 years ago when a big time global pop superstar signed a pic for a young ball player #lifecanbeafunnythingsometimes #pictureperfect #keepsake #jlo,” Rodriguez eloquently captioned his priceless photo. Check it out:

It wasn’t just A.Rod who was thrilled with this discovery, which definitely belongs in the Smithsonian (and not in storage.) Lopez left a comment on the Instagram photo, writing “Omg!! Who found that!!???” She reposted it to her own feed, once again expressing her surprise at what we should all agree is the newest national treasure:”Wow!! Had to repost!!! He found this cleaning out storage!!”

Blessed be destiny; blessed be the light of their love.

Here’s Why the Royal Husbands Don’t Have to Wear Wedding Bands

During Princess Eugenie’s wedding on Friday (October 12), eagle-eyed royal watchers noticed that after her now-husband Jack Brookshank awkwardly struggled to get the wedding band on her finger, Eugenie didn’t slip a ring on his. Cue us, the puzzled Americans: What gives?

As it turns out, it’s because he simply has chosen not to wear one. But it’s not just the spouses of minor royals (Princess Eugenie is ninth in line to the throne) that don’t have to: Apparently all royal men get to choose whether they wear one or not. “There is no royal tradition for men wearing or not wearing a wedding ring,” British and European royalty expert Marlene Koenig told Town & Country.

And, if you have to ask: “I am unaware of any royal woman not wearing a wedding ring,” Koenig told on Saturday.

There is just one ring in this photograph.

If you look closely, it turns out that Prince William, who is second in line to the throne after his father, Prince Charles, also doesn’t wear a ring. Reportedly, he’s not a fan of jewelry. As a royal spokesperson told People before his nuptials to Kate Middleton in 2011, “There is only going to be one ring, in accordance with the couple’s wishes.”

L: ring. R: no ring.

Perhaps Brookshank is following in the footsteps of his now-father-in-law Prince Andrew, who opted out of a ring as well while he was married to Princess Eugenie’s mother, Sarah Ferguson, from 1986 to 1996.

Nope, that’s just a pinky ring.

The patriarch of the royal family, Prince Philip, has also never worn a ring on his finger—and he and Queen Elizabeth II have been married for more than 70 years. Apparently there are some things, like love and royal tradition, that are stronger than platinum.

Prince Charles, husband to Camilla, does wear a wedding band, but instead of wearing it on his ring finger, he stacks his wedding band with a giant gold signet ring on his left pinky finger that he’s been sporting since the ‘70s.

But it’s a little different with Prince Harry, who some see as a more modern royal. When he and Meghan Markle married on May 19, the wedding program included a section called “the giving of the rings,” where Meghan and Harry exchanged wedding bands, with a plural. Now Harry proudly wears a platinum wedding band on his ring finger (a definite upgrade from the matching beaded bracelets he and Markle wore early on in their relationship).

Apparently, it’s not just royal men who opt out of this piece of symbolic jewelry, either: Koenig told Town & Country that men wearing wedding bands is a fairly new thing, and a lot of posh aristocrats still don’t (former Prime Minister David Cameron doesn’t either, she said).

The times change, but royal tradition changes slower.

Here’s Everything That Happened at Princess Eugenie’s Royal Wedding Reception

Princess Eugenie and Jack Brookshank’s wedding ceremony at Windsor Castle on Friday (October 12) had everything we hoped: a stunning Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos gown with a sweet meaning, some rare PDA from Kate Middleton and Prince William, and a viral moment from 5-year-old Prince George and his first cousin Savannah Phillips.

The couple, just like Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, were treated to a royal luncheon hosted by Queen Elizabeth II herself. But according to People magazine, the evening reception held at The Royal Lodge in Windsor Great Park, owned by Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, is where things really got fun.

According to The Sun, a British tabloid, the park on the property was set up like a carnival, complete with a Ferris wheel, bumper cars, games, and fall-colored string lights.

The English singer Robbie Williams, who’s been friends with Princess Eugenie for many years, also hopped on stage for an impromptu performance of his hit songs and other classics. According to People, Williams’ 6-year-old daughter Theodora—who was a flower girl in the wedding—took the stage with her dad to perform a duet of “Angels.”

On top of the night’s fun activities, George Clooney and Rande Gerber’s Casamigos tequila company, which Brooksbank works for, passed out the good stuff for celebrity guests like Demi Moore, Kate Moss, and Ricky Martin, and a gourmet pizza truck provided the food. Basically, it sounds like the wedding reception of dreams.

The party reportedly will continue into tonight with another carnival-themed party, because why stop at just one? We’re still waiting on the invites, but, you know, there’s still a few hours to go.
