Adam Levine is breaking his silence after he was publicly accused of cheating on wife, VS model Behati Prinsloo, his pregnant wife of eight years. As we told you, Sumner Stroh claimed in a TikTok video that she had an affair with Adam “for about a year.” Now, he has said on his Instagram Story, "A lot is being said about me right now and I want to clear the air. I used poor judgment in speaking with anyone other than my wife in ANY kind of flirtatious manner. I did not have an affair, nevertheless, I crossed the line during a regrettable period in my life." Now, even though he denies hooking up with her, one of Sumner’s family members said, "Adam got Sumner front row tickets to his concert as well as extras for (her) mom and her friend. They hooked up the night before at his hotel.” While there’s no evidence of her at the show, there are allegedly secret photos which show her in a hotel elevator on September 27 at 1:15 in the morning, according to OK.

Prince Harry sparked controversy after he was videoed at the funeral of Queen Elizabeth not singing Britain’s national anthem, “God Save the King.” While some people are slamming him for disrespecting his father, King Charles III, others are supporting him saying, “This boy lost his Mom at 12, and the woman who took him under her wing has now died. He is in mourning of his Grandma. Yes, she is Queen Elizabeth, but you can't sing and cry at the same time."

Bette said, “I’d love to have a franchise—especially a character I love playing.” Sarah said she’d roll with whatever. But Kathy is the one saying, “I feel like we’re done I guess, never say never.” But Kathy did have a good idea for the third one, that it should be animated.

As we told you, Sumner Stroh claimed in a TikTok video that she had an affair with Adam Levine, and she has since posted a follow up video, responding to people who say she’s not a victim because she knew he was married.
She claims that when they dated she was under the impression that Adam’s marriage was over. She says, “I believed they were keeping [their split] quiet to avoid the negative press. In retrospect, I wish I would have questioned things more. I wish I wasn’t so naive, but being naive is not an excuse for what I did and the role I played in this.” She also says she immediately ended things when she realized the truth. She did go on to apologize to Behati, noting, “I’m not the one getting hurt in this. It’s Behati and her children."

The lawsuit against Tiffany Haddish and Aries Spears is over. According to court documents obtained by TMZ, the unnamed “Jane Doe” plaintiff asked to dismiss the case with prejudice, meaning it can’t be refiled.

In a statement, the plaintiff said, “My family and I have known Tiffany Haddish for many years – and we now know that she would never harm me or my brother or help anyone else do anything that could harm us. We wish Tiffany the best and are glad that we can all put this behind us.” Tiffany and Aries had previously called the lawsuit a “shakedown.”

It looks like Adam Levine may have "used poor judgement" more than once. Following Sumner Stroh's revelation that they had a year-long affair, several other women have come out to claim Adam has sent them flirty messages too, even going so far to share screenshots as proof. In one case, a comedian named Maryka shared a conversation in which Adam allegedly told her, "Distract yourself by f****** with me!" Another girl, Alyson Rosef, also shares DMs allegedly sent to her from Adam with one reading, "I shouldn't be talking to you you know (right)?" In another exchange between those two, when Alyson said she only likes metal music, Adam apparently responded, “Said no hot chicks ever other than you.”

Paris Hilton's beloved Chihuahua "Diamond Baby" has gone missing, and the socialite is distraught. Paris said, "I was at a photoshoot and we’re moving houses and one of the movers must have left a door open. My family and friends have been helping me search high and low throughout my entire neighborhood and have gone door to door but we still haven’t found her."  Paris is going all out - researching drones to help in her search, hiring a pet detective, and ultimately, offering a reward for Diamond Baby's safe return, "no questions asked."

It’s clear that “Law & Order: SVU” stars Mariska Hargitay and Christopher Meloni have a great relationship. Mariska talked about how she’s considered Christopher’s “second wife” on Wiki.

Wife, therapist, bestie, sister, mother."

Shaq is now Dr. Shaq (well, Dr. O’Neill). How did that happen? He said in an interview that he contacted University of Phoenix about their MBA program. It’s primarily an online university, but he wanted to be in a classroom, so they told him that they needed to have at least 15 people for that. According to TMZ, Shaq then found 15 friends interested in getting their master’s degrees and paid for their tuition. He said when he got his MBA, his parents were so proud of him, but they always wanted a doctor in the family. So, Shaq went back to school and earned his doctorate in education.  Can you imagine being the kid who walks into the classroom and finds Dr. Shaq is their teacher?
