Liam previously told The Sun newspaper that the home was haunted. "I've seen lights go on and off in the middle of the night and a few little creepy things, like taps turning on and off. If you don't believe in it, I don't think I can get to you. But Cheryl was like, 'I'm not sleeping upstairs.' So we slept downstairs in the cinema room."
AJR's Ryan Met tells PopBuzz.com that he and his brothers always knew they were going to be in a band together. “We were never in other bands.

There is something about sibling bands that seems to work and we are honored to join that lineage.”

Pamela Anderson's stylist, Janet Ross, tells US Weekly Magazine that Pam almost married her bodyguard, Dan Hayhurst, in her pajamas. “Before she chose to wear the final look, she was going wear champagne-colored silk pajama pants and top, high heels and a veil. But then [at the] last minute, she decided she wanted to be a beautiful princess bride.”
Dan's ex-wife, Carey, says Pam stole him from her. She tells the NY Post, “This is not the lockdown love story which is being portrayed, it’s all a facade. I decided to speak out because I want people to know that my almost five-year relationship, with three children involved, ended because of the affair Pam and Dan started while he was still with me. It’s sad that people celebrate this and cheer them on, when it started with deceit, denials and life-shattering choices for all the people involved. It wasn’t this romance that happened overnight. He worked with her for over six months before any of that happened. He wasn’t her body-guard then, he is a handyman, she hired him to work on her house. We were all totally blindsided by this, it’s been so hard for us. And it’s not just me and the kids, lots of people have been hurt by them. Dan has lost friendships and business relationships because of this.”
Woman's Day magazine says Jason Momoa's wife, Lisa Bonet, allegedly wants Amber Heard to star in ''Aquaman 2'' rather than Jason's ''Game of Thrones'' co-star, Emilia Clarke. A source tells the magazine, ''When news came out that Emilia would be playing Mera, Lisa kicked off. She's had enough of seeing Emilia with her man, so she fought hard to keep Amber on the ticket. Jason, of course, did whatever Lisa wanted. He's a huge fan of 'happy wife, happy life'. Probably a wise thing, too — Emilia's single and there's no denying the steamy chemistry between her and Jason."
The Star says Sandra Bullock wants to go on a double date with Keanu Reeves and his girlfriend, Alexandra. A source tells the magazine, “Sandy’s crush on Keanu went on for years.

But even if it’s a chilled-out dinner party via Zoom, Bryan’s not down with it at all.”
New Idea magazine claims Bradley Cooper is allegedly open to having another child with Irina Shayk. A source tells the magazine, “Neither of them is attached and both are focused on Lea and she wants a sibling. Irina’s heart will always be with Bradley, so she’s all for them having another kid. But Bradley’s pretty clear there won’t be a marriage and he can’t promise her a romantic relationship either. He’s willing to try, though, and that’s enough for Irina.''
New Idea magazine says George and Amal Clooney are allegedly working hard on their marriage. A source tells the magazine,“They now have long walks together to catch up on their days. And given they can’t go on date nights right now, they have one ‘no-kids-or-phones’ night per week at home. She also wants George to spend more time with the kids and to look after them for at least two hours every day. She doesn’t want him being an absent father.''
Chris Tucker tells the Shay Shay Series that he was only paid $10,000 for his role in the classic movie ''Friday.'' “We filmed it in 20 days. I got about $10,000 for it or whatever, I didn't care. I wanted the opportunity. It was that small of a movie, but that was the beauty of it,” Tucker added. “It allowed me to get into character. It wasn't no big distractions like big movie sets. You got light people and sound people and everybody wanna be a star. But that movie was just a camera and me and Cube on the porch. Magic came out of it, thank God.”
