Divorce sucks” – just ask Chris Pratt and Anna Faris.

Last August, Hollywood’s beloved couple made a shocking announcement when they revealed that they were breaking up. Now, the 38-year-old A-lister is finally opening up about his separation from Faris.

While Faris has been fairly candid about their split, Pratt has stayed silent on the matter – until now. In speaking with Entertainment Weekly, the “Guardians of the Galaxy” actor said, “At the end of the day, we’ve got a great kid who’s got two parents who love him very much. And we’re finding a way to navigate this while still remaining friends and still being kind to one another. It’s not ideal, but yeah, I think both of us are actually probably doing better.”

The “great kid” is their 5-year-old child, Jack. The parents have since seek joint custody of their son. Faris is currently dating cinematographer Michael Barrett. Pratt, on the other hand, is believed to be dating… no one. Maybe his dinosaurs? We don’t know.

The hunky star has 2 major upcoming movies hitting theatres soon – “Avengers: Infinity War” and “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom”.

Although we’re still saddened by their split, it’s good to know that the former flames are in a happier space now.

Surprise, surprise! Nicholas Hoult is officially a dad!

The “X-Men: Apocalypse” star and his model girlfriend Bryana Holly welcomed their first child into the world. This comes as shock to many as the British actor has successfully kept the baby news under wraps. No words yet on the baby’s actual birthday.

They have kept the news under wraps, but are so happy and excited,” an insider told People. According to reports, the 28-year-old actor and his 24-year-old American beau started dating back in March 2017. The Playboy model has a huge following on Instagram but she doesn’t share any personal pictures – Hoult included.

Both Hoult and Holly have previously dated famous people in the entertainment industry before. Hoult was on-again/off-again 4-year relationship with fellow “X-Men” star Jennifer Lawrence. Meanwhile, Holly has been linked to 5 Seconds of Summer’s drummer Ashton Irwin and Brody Jenner (Kim Kardashian’s step-brother).

Hoult is notoriously tight-lipped about his private life but he did gave a rare insight into his relationship with his baby mama. When asked about sharing bedroom space with his significant other, he said, “I don’t feel as though I’m that possessive over things like that. She can put her stuff wherever she likes.”

My dad was an air pilot so he was flying a lot, and I grew up with my two sisters and my mum so I was used to ‘girl things’ being around and a ‘girl environment’ in the household,” the movie star told Mr. Porter’s The Journal back in November 2017.

Officials representing the reality-documentary show confirmed this today (Thursday, 19th April). They released a simple statement, saying, “Wanna One members Ong Seongwoo and Ha Sungwoon will appear in ‘Law of the Jungle’ in Sabah’“.

The Wanna One members had reportedly wanted to join the show since last year, but couldn’t due to scheduling conflicts. This time round, they will be joined by actress Lee Dahee, who will be starring on the show for the 2nd time.

The season will be helmed by Min Seonhong, who also produced “Law of the Jungle in Wild New Zealand” and “Law of the Jungle in Cook Islands”. The Sabah season will be filmed in May and is expected to be broadcasted in July. It will take place after the Antarctica and Mexico seasons.

Malaysian pop trio KRU has some sad news to share.

Members Datuk Norman, Yusry and Edry Abdul Halim made an official announcement at a press conference in Impiana KLCC Hotel. The group stated that KRU will be disbanded after their final “KRU 25” concert, which is set to take place in Istana Budaya between 4th – 6th May.

Formed in 1992, the talented brothers were at the forefront of the Malaysian music scene with their unique blend of pop, R&B and hip hop. During their two decades of being in the industry, Dato Norman has been quite successful with his business empire. Meanwhile, Yusry has dabbled in films and media events. He even released a solo self-titled album back in 2003. Edry on the other hand, has been consistent in producing and composing music.

This will be our final concert. With that we are breaking up,” Yusry told reporter early today (Wednesday, 18th April). In conjunction with their concert, KRU also released a compilation album consisting 30 songs. One of which is a new track titled “Tahan Lama”. “The song is a statement of success not only of KRU’s but any individual,” Erdy shared.

I think we have achieved everything we wanted to do as a group. Each of us have our own responsibilities and respective projects. It’s time for us to move forward,” said Norman as he thanked the faithful fans over the years and his loved ones.

English singer-songwriter Jessie J may have all the fame that she needed, but that didn’t stop her from going back to the basic by joining – and ultimately winning – a talent competition in China!

Yep, you heard that right, the former judge of “The Voice UK”, has competed and won in Hunan Television’s popular singing contest, “Singer 2018”, one of China’s most famous singing competition that is said to be the equivalent of “X Factor”.

Instagram Photo

The Chinese show pits the most talented and established artistes from across Asia against each other, and Jessie J became the first international contestant to win the show.

According to reports, the finals of the singing competition has around one billion viewers, so this means that Jessie J has gotten herself a whole lot of new fans in China as well as other parts of Asian region.

Instagram Photo

Jessie took to Instagram to express her gratitude and appreciation, she shared; “Last year, I was asked to compete in a singing competition in China. Performing alongside the biggest established singers / artists across Asia. I was the first international artist to ever be asked / compete.”

“An honour alone. I know a lot of people were shocked when they found out. Like why would I compete in a singing competition… I’m probably the least competitive person I know. I said yes because I LOVE to do the unexpected and I LOVE to represent the UK and singing everywhere I go. I LOVE to sing. But also it was an opportunity to bridge a gap between two cultures,” she said.

She then continued; “I won the show last night. But what we all won was the beginning of something really magical. I am so happy I got to play a part. Here is to me being the first but not the last international artist to be on SINGER. And for the boundaries to continue to be broken. I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU!”

During the finale, the 30-year-old singer performed some of her famous hits like “Bang Bang” and “Domino”, as well as cover of Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You”.

Another pregnancy speculation of Malaysian actress Fazura has circulated the internet – once again.

Rumours of the pregnancy sparked when fans noticed an Instagram photo of the actress with a little bit of a baby bump popping up from under her dress.

After a fan pointing out the tiny bump, others immediately left congratulatory messages on the photo, assuming that this time the “Ayat-Ayat Cinta 2” actress could be expecting for real.

Instagram Photo

It is unsure Fazura is truly pregnant since this is not the first time that such rumours had circulated.

But in her recent Instagram photos, the 34-year-old actress is shown wearing a rather loose shirt, so we wonder if this is her attempt to hide her growing baby bump?

What do you think of the rumours? Let us know!

Disney is apparently removing Li Shang from the upcoming live-action “Mulan” and fans are not having it.

In fact, they have taken to social media to voice their opinion on who should play the beloved character. As you may know, Li Shang is Mulan’s superior in the animated movie. Although he initially looked down on her, the warrior came to respect her as an equal and eventually developed feelings for the titular character.

Can’t seem to find the perfect Li Shang, Disney? Don’t worry, social media has plenty to say.

Born in Fuzhou, China, Ludi Lin has lived in Australia, Canada, Thailand, and the US. His breakout role was in “Power Rangers” as Zack Taylor/ Black Ranger. He’ll be returning to the big screen late this year in the much-anticipated DC’s “Aquaman” as Murk. With experiences in Muay Thai kickboxing, jujitsu, and Olympic-style wrestling, this Chinese-Canadian actor certainly has the tools to bring Li Shang to live.

Known for portraying the legendary Bruce Lee in the film “Bruce Lee, My Brother”, Aarif Rahman is of Arab, Chinese, and Malay heritage. His Malaysian father is of Malay, Arab and Chinese ancestry, while his mother is Hong Kong Chinese. We last saw him starring opposite Jackie Chan in “Kung Fu Yoga” and “The Thousand Faces of Dunjia”.

Similar to Aarif Rahman, Godfrey Gao is also half Malaysian. He was born to a Shanghainese dad (Taipei) and a Peranakan Chinese mom from Penang. The handsome star is not only fluent in English and Mandarin, but he has played Chinese generals before (2016’s “God of War: Zhao Yun”).

Eddie Peng is not new to the Hollywood scene, having starred in “The Great Wall”. What makes him a good contender is his versatility as an actor. He has acted from as an autistic teen to Chinese kungfu hero (Wong Fei Hung). The cherry on top? He has previously worked with “Mulan” lead actress Liu Yifei in “Chinese Paladin”, so we know the chemistry will be there.

Of course, there are also other suggestions such as Simu Liu, Wu Chun, and Elvis Han.

As you can see, there are plenty in the acting pool to bring Li Shang to life. Who else do y’all think is worthy to play the beloved character?

Does Iggy Azalea fancy Tyga?

The duo has been linked together and they took their romance rumours up a notch during their appearance at the 2018 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. It looks like The Weeknd and Bella Hadid weren’t the only ones getting cosy in public lately.

This is not the first time the rumoured couple (whose real names are Micheal Ray Stevenson and Amethyst Kelly) have been spotted together. Besides appearing on the Valentine’s Day edition of MTV’s TRL in February together, Iggy also made a surprise visit to Tyga’s set at the Jumanji Festival in Melbourne in March.

Tyga and Iggy have been tight for a long time—they’ve collaborated and performed together, and hung out as friends multiple times. There’s always been an attraction between them, a definite chemistry. And recently, their friendship has turned physical. They’re not at the stage of dating yet though, they’re more just friends with benefits, but it looks like it could definitely be on the cards in the future,” an insider said.

During the recent music festival, the pair rocked matching Vans shoes. Eggy Eggs wore a revealing sheer black longsleeve top where the only thing covering her modesty was her bright pink hair. Meanwhile, the American rapper wore a political statement tee with the words “Cops Kill”.

Tyga previously dated Kylie Jenner and was married to Blac Chyna. The Aussie rapper was previously engaged to Golden State Warriors player Nick Young. She dumped him after he was caught cheating with his ex Keonna Green.

Are y’all happy that they’re together?
