Sadie Robertson Thanks New Husband Christian Huff for Saying Her Stretchmarks Are 'So Cool'. Sadie Robertson thanked her new husband, Christian Huff, for loving all of her -- including her stretchmarks -- in a candid Instagram post on Saturday, December 7. "'Whoa babe your stretch marks are so cool things husbands say," the former Duck Dynasty star, 22, captioned two photos of herself relaxing on the beach in a red one-piece swimsuit. "I'm finding it's pretty cool that the things I was insecure about my husband thinks are the best," the newlywed continued. "But when I really start to think about it, i think that the things most people are insecure about are the things we think are the best on the ones we love. Smile lines, face wrinkles, stretch marks, scars that say we made it through something hard, and all the other things we notice in the mirror that bother us, our friends and family notice and love and are proud of the people we have become." "Just think about it," she concluded. "If we love it for other people let's just start loving it for ourselves too it would make life a lot more fun." The former reality TV star's husband of two weeks commented on her post, writing, "My babyyyyy so proud of you and so in love with you honey love your honesty and realness." Robertson and Huff, 21, tied the knot on November 25 in a ceremony at her family's farm in West Monroe, Louisiana, in front of guests including the bride's parents, Korie and Willie Robertson, Dancing With the Stars alum Alfonso Ribeiro and Fuller House's Candace Cameron Bure. Earlier this month, the couple, who got engaged in June after nine months of dating, shared photos from their beach honeymoon in Mexico. "I might not be able to take the beach with me BUT IM TAKING THE VIEW AYEEEE," the "WHOA That's Good" podcast host captioned her happy snaps on December 2. "I know it's only week 1 but marriage is awesome." On Saturday, Robertson's mom, Korie, shared three photos from the couple's wedding ceremony that showed the special moment when their loved ones gathered around them in prayer. "This moment this was when everything stopped," she captioned the pics. "All of the planning and preparing, the decorating and the details, the making sure I hadn't forgotten anything, that I had said all the things I wanted to say to her before she got married, all that lead up to right here... everything stopped as we placed our hands on Sadie and Christian and together lifted our hearts to God. Ours and Christian's family came to the front after they said their vows just for a moment and prayed over them, asking of one accord for God to bless them, to protect them, to make them strong and courageous, to hold them in His arms, to make theirs a love that will never fail, to give them a beautiful life-together in His will and a home filled with the fruits of His Spirit of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, self-control and also a home filled with sweet, sweet children." "We all prayed silently and quietly," she concluded. "I don't know what each person's prayer was specifically, but I know that God heard our every word and He loves to answer the prayers of His children. Thanking Him already for what He has planned for these two. This was a holy moment that I will never, ever forget." (UsMagazine)

Gigi and Bella Hadid won't be getting any little siblings ... their dad and his fiancee called it quits in part because they couldn't agree on starting a family together. Sources close to Mohamed Hadid tell TMZ ... he and Shiva Safai parted ways about a year ago -- even though she didn't confirm it publicly until this week. We're told the 39-year-old absolutely wanted to be a mom, but Mohamed wasn't looking to go down that road again. As you know ... Mohamed is already a father to 5 beautiful children -- daughters Bella, Gigi, Alana and Marielle, and son Anwar. Another reason for the breakup, sources close to Shiva tell us, was her reaction to a woman who publicly claimed she had a relationship with Mohamed. We're told it made Shiva reevaluate things, before having a heart-to-heart with him about their future. It's still unclear who broke up with who, but we're told Mohamed and Shiva both agreed they were on different pages. The now-exes got engaged way back in 2014, but we're told he came to the realization he didn't want to be married again -- he's already got 2 under his belt. Our sources say he hopes Shiva can find Mr. Right, get married and have kids. One last bit of accounting ... the ring. We're told Shiva's engagement rock is a Hadid family heirloom, and she gave it back to Mohamed, and he's passed it on his eldest sister. For what it's worth, Shiva's now dating a new guy Niels Houweling but she and Mohamed are on good terms. (TMZ)

The private jet Juice WRLD flew on to Chicago was loaded down with 70 pounds of marijuana ... and cops say people on the plane told them the rapper had popped several pills prior to suffering seizures. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the FBI confiscated the huge stash of weed from several suitcases that were on board the flight. We obtained this photo of the marijuana and luggage in the private jet terminal at Midway. According to law enforcement, several members of Juice's team aboard the flight -- which landed around 1 AM Sunday -- told them Juice had taken "several unknown pills" prior to the seizures which led to him getting rushed to a hospital. Further, we're told one of Juice's associates told authorities the 21-year-old rapper has a Percocet problem. Our law enforcement sources also say a bottle of codeine cough syrup was found on the plane. Juice's cause of death hasn't been determined ... the Cook County Medical Examiner will conduct an autopsy on Monday. Two men -- Chris Long and Henry Dean -- were arrested for possession of handguns. We're told cops recovered 3 guns in total. Dean was released without bail, and Long is out after posting a $1,500 bond. (TMZ)

The relationship between Chris Cornell's widow and his former band is in black days, to say the least ... because she's suing over money and the rights to 7 unreleased recordings. Vicky Cornell filed legal docs, claiming the remaining members of Soundgarden are withholding hundreds of thousands of dollars in royalties owed to her and Chris' minor children. She calls the move an "unlawful attempt to strong-arm Chris' Estate into turning over certain audio recordings created by Chris before he passed away." The rights to those recordings -- some of Chris' final ones -- are the crux of the dispute between Vicky and the band. According to the docs, obtained by TMZ, she says the 7 tracks were "solely authored by Chris; contain Chris' own vocal tracks; and were bequeathed to Chris' Estate" for the benefit of her and their kids. Vicky claims she's offered to share the recordings with Soundgarden, so they can be released in a way that respects Chris' wishes -- including having his producer involved -- but she says the band refused. She also accuses lead guitarist Kim Thayil of putting her family in harm's way by suggesting she's the main obstacle to Soundgarden putting out another album. In the docs, filed by powerhouse attorneys Marty Singer and James Sammataro, Vicky says those comments are intentionally misleading to Soundgarden's "loyal, rabid fan base" ... and she believes Thayil knows Chris worked on the music solo. However, Soundgarden is claiming Chris and the other members had been "working on the files in a collaborative effort." In a letter to Vicky, they say ... "The entire band was feeling very positive about their rekindled artistic energy and creativity" before Cornell died. It also lists various members as co-songwriters along with Chris on 5 of the 7 disputed recordings. Vicky's not buying it, and wants the judge to declare Chris' estate the sole owner of the unreleased tracks ... and force the band to fork over the alleged unpaid royalties. We've reached out to Soundgarden ... no word back yet. (TMZ)

R. Kelly's former tour manager, Demetrius Smith, will testify on the singer's marriage to Aaliyah in one of his federal trials ... but he doesn't want to see Kelly thrown in prison. Demetrius claims he purchased a fake ID for Aaliyah back in 1994, when she was only 15, so she would be able to marry Kelly ... but he tells us he doesn't want that to be the reason Kelly gets convicted. As we first reported ... prosecutors say the fake ID purchase constitutes bribery, and they've added the allegation to the racketeering charge against Kelly in the Eastern District of New York. The way Demetrius sees it, Aaliyah's parents have known about the allegation for over a decade -- Smith wrote about it in his book and spoke out about it in "Surviving R. Kelly" -- and they made their peace with it and moved on ... so he wants others to do the same. Demetrius also says he hates to see Aaliyah's name getting dragged into Kelly's case all these years after her tragic death ... and he thinks prosecutors are just trying to lock Kelly up without looking at the bigger picture. Instead of a prison sentence, Demetrius thinks Kelly needs to get mental help. (TMZ)
