HAILEY BALDWIN CHANGES LAST NAME TO BIEBER ON INSTAGRAM; JUSTIN SETTLES EGGING LAWSUIT – (11/19/2018)
While neither Justin Bieber nor Hailey Baldwin have officially confirmed that they secretly married in September, as has been rumored, the two are sending pretty clear signals that they are husband and wife.
First, Hailey changed her Instagram handle to “Hailey Bieber” on Friday, and changed her name on her bio to “Hailey Rhode Bieber” – “Rhode” being her middle name. This came after Hailey was photographed wearing a jacket with BIEBER written across the back on Thursday night.
Also on Friday, Justin posted a photo of himself and Hailey holding hands on a street and captioned it, “My wife is awesome.”
According to E!, Hailey filed to trademark “Hailey Bieber” to be used on a potential clothing line in October.
Meanwhile, Justin has agreed to settle a long-running lawsuit filed by a former neighbor whose house the singer egged. A document filed Friday shows the case has been resolved in its entirety. No details were given about the terms. The suit sought more than $25,000 in damages for assault and battery, trespassing and infliction of emotional distress claims.
Jeffrey and Suzanne Schwartz filed a lawsuit in early 2015 that alleged they suffered emotional harm because of the egging and other actions by Bieber when he lived next door.
The 24-year-old singer has already served probation in a criminal plea deal after the 2013 incident, and paid $80,000 in restitution for the damage he caused.
JENNA DEWAN AND JESSIE J SHUT DOWN FAUX LOOKS FEUD – (11/19/2018)
No beef here! In a refreshing turn of events, Channing Tatum’s ex Jenna Dewan and his new love interest Jessie J are staunchly denying rumors of a jealous feud.
In a heartfelt message on social media, Dewan declares she has “nothing but respect” for his new girlfriend. The 37-year-old is confronting sometimes nasty comparisons fans made between the pair’s appearance. (Some fans noted they look alike, while others opine one or the other is much more attractive).
J concurs, writing that it’s wrong for people to pit her against another “beautiful woman,” continuing: “I spent so much of my childhood trying to be comfortable in my skin just like so many other little girls, and when I get older, decided to spend my career making lots of music to try and help / inspire myself and all other women to see their beauty from the inside out and will continue to do so.”
Dewan responds: “Amen Jessie! Yes!!!! Women for women all the way. No need for negativity. Let’s live in a world where we support each other and raise each other up.”
- Meanwhile, as Tatum moves on with J, Dewan has moved on with Tony-winner Steve Kazee post-divorce. They pair were photographed smooching and strolling in Beverly Hills Friday.
- Dewan officially filed for divorce from Tatum in October, several months after announcing their split. They were married for eight years and share a daughter, Everly.
MICHAEL BUBLÉ GETS HIS STAR ON THE HOLLYWOOD WALK OF FAME – (11/19/2018)
Michael Buble’s new album Love came out on Friday and that same day, he was honored with his very own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Michael was saluted by Elvis Presley’s widow Priscilla Presley, who called him a “star” and praised his compassion and his sense of humor.
Michael’s producer David Foster said that the singer “knows no boundaries, and hits at the heart of every generation,” adding, “There is no one like him on this planet – at least, no one living.” Foster also praised Michael as “decent, kind, grateful, soulful, charitable,” and said he was “an amazing father and husband.”
Bublé told the crowd that the honor was “truly about all you beautiful people, because I’d never be standing here without everyone.”
“The longer I live, the more i realize that love isn’t free. Love has a great cost. The more you love, the more you hurt, the greater chance at suffering and pain,” Michael said, referencing the emotional distress his family went through while his son Noah battled cancer.
