1. Normani goes Instagram official with Seattle Seahawks player DK Metcalf

It’s time to put the rumors to rest. Normani and DK Metcalf are dating! According to reports, the “Wild Side” singer and her professional-football-player boyfriend went Instagram official over the weekend in their IG Stories. The shared post featured a sexy photo of them at the wedding of Metcalf’s Seahawks teammate Tyler Lockett. Metcalf places a sweet kiss on his girlfriend’s cheek in the photo. Normani flashes a sweet smile while her eyes are closed as both arms are wrapped around each other.

The newly minted couple looked dazzling at the wedding. The Fifth Harmony alum donned a classic black gown with a sheer bodice while rocking a half-up half-down hairstyle. On the other hand, her beau put his swag on the black-tie event. The wide receiver paired a black tuxedo jacket, a white dress shirt, and a bow tie with matching bottoms. To top the look off, he opted for a pair of crisp white sneakers and white crew socks.

Osas Ighodaro has shown her support for the SAG-AFTRA strike. Over the weekend, the actress joined the ongoing actors and screenwriters’ strike in Hollywood and Manhattan. Osas took to Instagram to share pictures and the fact that she has been a member of the union since 2006. The SAG part stands for Screen Actors Guild, while AFTRA stands for American Federation of Television and Radio Artists. The unions represent approximately 160,000 film and television actors, journalists, and radio personalities.

Members of both unions have joined the ongoing writers’ strike for the first time in more than 60 years. This is Hollywood’s first industry-wide shutdown since 1960 when writers and actors last went on strike at the same time. Actors are joining the writers who have been walking the picket lines for over 70 days to fight for better pay and protection in the face of streaming and the challenges it presents. So far, these issues include changes to residual payments and the potential use of artificial intelligence that would affect jobs.

3. Zakes Bantwini to be first South African artist to headline concert at Cape Town’s DHL Stadium

Grammy Award-winning musician Zakes Bantwini held a media launch at Cape Town’s DHL Stadium last week to unveil the date for his highly anticipated “Abantu” concert. Set for October 28, the concert will see Bantwini become the first local artist to headline a concert at the famed stadium.

Joining him in the stadium’s business lounge was the Mayor of Cape Town, Geordin Hill-Lewis, along with various media representatives from across the country. Bantwini is also set to release his final album, which is also titled “Abantu.” A date is yet to be announced for the album release.

4. Kylie Jenner and Jordyn Woods reunite 4 years after Tristan Thompson scandal

Kylie Jenner and Jordyn Woods reunited at the weekend, four years following the explosive end to their friendship after the model’s Tristan Thompson cheating scandal. The 25-year-old reality star and the fashion influencer, also 25, were seen having a dinner date at a sushi restaurant in Los Angeles on Saturday.

The surprise reunion comes after Woods admitted to sharing a kiss with the beauty mogul’s half-sister Khloe Kardashian’s now-ex in 2019. The designer was cut off by the Kardashian—Jenner clan after it emerged that she had locked lips with Thompson—the father of Kardashian’s two young children True, five, and Tatum, 11 months-at a party.

Kylian Mbappe has made a low-key return to Paris Saint-Germain training amid his ongoing contract stand-off with the club. Mbappe has returned to the group for pre-season training and a video posted on PSG’s Instagram has shown the striker reuniting with Neymar. Mbappe has told PSG that he does not intend to sign a new contract at the club and wants to run down his current deal, which expires next summer.

However, the club have told him that he must either sign a new deal or be sold this summer, as they do not intend to lose him for nothing. Mbappe has long been courted by Real Madrid, who have been linked with a €200 million (£171m/$225m) swoop this summer. However, La Liga’s champions may well look to wait until next summer, when they could sign the superstar on a free transfer.
