British media personality, Simon Cowell, has proposed to his lover, Lauren Silverman, after dating for 13 years.
Cowell, famous for his stern criticisms as a judge on American Idol, and the X Factor, popped the question during the couple’s recent holiday in Barbados, The Sun reported on Tuesday night.
The 62-year-old who had previously declared he didn’t believe in marriage, proposed to the girlfriend in the presence of their seven-year-old son Eric, and step-son Adam, from Lauren’s first marriage.
According to a source, the engagement happened on Christmas Eve.
The source said; “Simon and Lauren are ridiculously, nauseatingly in love – incredibly, lockdown brought them closer than ever.
“Lauren was absolutely stunned and never in a million years expected Simon to pop the question. She burst into tears – happy tears – and obviously said ‘yes’ straight away.
“It was important to Simon that the kids were there too, as he adores them both and the family they’ve become.
“Lauren has been Simon’s rock over these past few years – supporting him when he broke his back, and through thick and thin generally. They make a wonderful couple.
“Whilst Simon never thought he was the marrying type, he’s realised he’s met the woman of his dreams – and couldn’t be happier. In the words of Beyoncé, it was time to put a ring on it.”
Slim Jxmmi Arrested For Allegedly Assaulting Girlfriend In Miami
Slim Jxmmi, one half of the rap group, Rae Sremmurd, was arrested this morning at a northeast Miami apartment after he allegedly assaulted the mother of his young child following an argument. According to NBC Miami, Jxmmi’s girlfriend Kee told police she confronted Jxmmi over a woman he followed on social media. Following the confrontation, Jxmmi left the apartment with his music producer and told Kee he was going to the gym. However, one of her friends said he saw the two men drinking at a bar.
When Jxxmi and the producer returned to the apartment, that’s when things escalated. Kee claims the men smelled of alcohol. While stepping away, she went to take a shower, and when she returned to the living room, Jxmmi was lying on the floor, and their son was sleeping in a playpen. Kee asked the rapper to assist her in moving their child’s playpen, which he refused. Reports state that after attempting to take the baby into a bedroom, Jxmmi allegedly grabbed Kee’s hair pulling her extensions out.
To try to have receipts of the assault, Kee began recording the argument and sent the video to one of her friends, according to police. Jxmmi then began chasing Kee around the apartment, attempting to get the phone, and jumped on his girlfriend to retrieve the phone out of her bra. Reports also state that Kee went into the bedroom and closed the door before Jxmmi kicked it in. Once inside, the two fought over the phone on the balcony, where he grabbed it and threw it, allegedly telling Kee the video would “destroy his celebrity status.”
Although Kee had scratch marks on her chest and Jxmmi was charged with battery and transported to the Miami-Dade Police Department and given a $1500 bond, the mother made a post on Instagram denying the assault. Kee called out Miami-Dade Police Department and said the incident was cap. Roomies, what do you think about this situation?

How Malawi-based Priest, Fr Ugwu appealed to its national football team to switch off phones before match with Morocco because “Buhari can surprise anyone”
Rev. Fr. Kelvin Ugwu, a Nigerian Catholic priest based in Malawi, on Tuesday appealed to the country’s football team to switch off their phones ahead of their match with Morocco in the round of 16 of the Africa Cup of Nations on January 25.
Ugwu took to his Facebook page to make the appeal, saying that Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari might surprise the Malawians with a phone call as he is known for ‘chasing after rats while his house is on fire’ .
He said; “Because Buhari can just surprise anyone and even go to the extent of chasing after rats while his house is on fire, that is why I am making this passionate appeal.
We remembered one certain time where he ran to Mali to settle two people fighting with sticks while his house was exploding with bombs.
“Please and please, Malawi is playing Morocco today, help me pass this message to the players and coach. . . Malawi team should switch off their phones now or ignore any call that they are not sure of. E get why.”
I only ‘traffic’ comedy, not drugs – DeGeneral speaks following his release [Watch video]
Nigerian skit maker and comedian, Joshua Sunday, popularly known as DeGeneral, has released his first statement following his release from the Nigeria Drug Law Enforcement Agency’s custody on Monday.
The Instagram comedian made a clarification regarding his business, saying that he is not a drug trafficker.
Justice Daniel Osiagor of the Federal High Court on Monday, convicted the comedian alongside Caleb William, a cinematographer.
But in his ruling, the judge held that the volume of substance was minimal so rather than sentence them to jail, he warned them to “go and sin no more”.
DeGeneral took to his IG page on Tuesday and shared a video where he assured fans that he was alive, well, and prepared to go back to making skits after a short two-week absence.
The skit maker said; “As you all can see, I am alive, I am healthy, I am back to my house eating, and I am freshened up. I just want to thank the general public and to let them know that I am fine. And for you folks trying to reach out to me, showing your concern, I appreciate it a lot.
“I just want to want to debunk the news circulating that De General is a drug trafficker. I’m not a drug trafficker! If I was a drug trafficker, do you think they’ll allow me go like that? I only traffic laughter and comedy.
“So let’s get our facts right. De General is not a drug trafficker, and I love you all. I don miss to dey do skits. E kon be like say nah one year”.
