Law Roach, the famed stylist to Zendaya and other celebrities, has announced his “retirement” from the fashion industry. The stylist, 44, took to Instagram on Tuesday to share that his “cup is empty,” along with an image of the word “Retired.” “My Cup is empty,” he wrote. “thank you to everyone who’ve supported me and my career over the years. Every person that trusted me with their image, I’m so grateful for you all.”
Roach then hinted at some factors that led to his decision, without going into detail. “If this business was just about the clothes I would do it for the rest of my life but unfortunately it’s not!” he continued. “The politics, the lies, and false narratives finally got me!

He has insisted he’s not thinking about retirement any time soon, but when the time comes to step back, he wants to mentor up-and-coming artistes. The “God’s Plan” hitmaker also teased he might release a new album this year.

Erling Haaland’s quick-fire hat-trick for Manchester City against RB Leipzig on Tuesday broke a goalscoring record previously held by Kylian Mbappe. The big Norwegian scored a first-half hat-trick as City took control of their Champions League last-16 early on at the Etihad. While Haaland’s efforts will help his team progress further in the competition, it also represented an impressive individual feat. At 22 years and 236 days old, the City forward became the youngest player to reach 30 goals in the competition’s history. That puts him ahead of Kylian Mbappe, who previously held the record at 22 years and 352 days old, both of whom are far ahead of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
On the night, Haaland also celebrated becoming the fastest player to reach the 30-goal milestone, doing so in just 25 matches, beating Ruud van Nistelrooy’s previous record of 30 games. Not content with breaking two records, Haaland grabbed a fourth goal early in the second half. That strike drew him level with Tommy Johnson for the most goals scored in a single season for Man City (38). His fifth goal, netted just a few minutes later, saw him take that record outright. With that finish, he became just the third player in Champions League history to net five times in a single game.
