Dua Lipa and Anwar Hadid's Grammys appearance cemented their status as Hollywood's hottest young couple. Cute. Dua Lipa and Anwar Hadid are fast becoming Hollywood's hottest young couple - and their appearance on the Grammys red carpet just cemented that. The power duo rocked up to the red carpet in matching 90s-inspired ensembles and looked so damn cute. She's no stranger to a seriously chic red carpet look, but Dua's look at Sunday night's Grammy Awards has to be one of her best yet. Designed by none other than vintage queen Vivienne Westwood, the look comprised of a simple white satin skirt slip paired with a matching, cropped cami vest complete with functional, adjustable straps. Anwar, meanwhile, Anwar donned a black-and-white suit offset with a key 90s accessory, the wallet chain. The British singer started dating none other than Bella and Gigi Hadid's younger brother, 20-year-old model Anwar Hadid, in 2019 after Dua split with long-term boyfriend, Isaac Carew and Anwar split with Nicola Peltz (who is now dating Brooklyn Beckham; young love is exhausting, isn't it?!). Gigi, after all, is a close friend of the New Rules singer and might be the one who played matchmaker, setting up her little bro with her pal. It was claimed that Dua and 32-year-old chef Isaac called things off at the beginning of June because their hectic diaries prevented them from spending much time together. Dua is currently gearing up to release new tracks and has been on the road touring for the best part of three years. Dua first began dating the model-turned-chef in 2013 before they spent nearly four years together until 2017. She then briefly dated Lany star, Paul Klein, before reuniting with Isaac in January last year. Maybe Anwar will be The One? (British Glamour)

Kobe Bryant's Reason for Taking Helicopters Will Break Your Heart. Kobe Bryant always put family time first. The world is in mourning over the death of the 41-year-old Los Angeles Lakers legend. The basketball star, who shared four kids with wife Vanessa Bryant, passed away on Sunday morning in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, Calif. Kobe's 13-year-old daughter Gianna "Gigi" Bryant, along with seven other people, were also killed in the devastating crash. At the time of the crash, the helicopter was believed to heading to Kobe's Mamba Academy in Thousand Oaks, Calif. Kobe was the coach of his daughter's basketball team, and fellow passengers on the helicopter included Gigi's teammates and Kobe's assistant coach. As news of the crash emerged over the weekend, tributes for the beloved star began to appear online. In the tributes, it's often mentioned how much Kobe loved his family and how much he enjoyed talking about them. In a 2018 interview with Alex Rodriguez for The Corp With A-Rod and Big Cat, Kobe explained how much family time meant to him, and why he started taking helicopters from his home in Orange County up to the Los Angeles area for basketball. "Traffic started getting really, really bad," Kobe said during the interview. "I was sitting in traffic and I wound up missing like a school play because I was sitting in traffic." "This thing just kept mounting, and I had to figure out a way that I could still train and focus on the craft but still not compromise family time," Kobe explained. "So that's when I looked into helicopters and being able to get down and back in 15 minutes." Kobe went on to share his former schedule before his retirement. As Lakers fans will know, the team plays in the Staples Center in LA, so Kobe would take a helicopter to the area in order to train. As he explained, "Weights early in the morning, kids to school, fly down, practice like crazy, do my extra work, media, everything I needed to do, fly back, get back in carpool line, pick the kids up." While Kobe's wife Vanessa offered to pick the kids up, Kobe told her he wanted to do it because being on the road for basketball often kept him away from home. Kobe added, "Every chance I get to see them and spend time with them, even if it's 20 minutes in the car, I want that." In addition to Gigi, Kobe and Vanessa are parents to Natalia Bryant, 17, Bianka Bryant, 3, and Capri Bryant, 7 months. Our thoughts are with the families affected by this tragedy during this heartbreaking time. (Eonline)

Lamar Odom and his fiancee say people are reading too much into her deleting some IG pics -- including one of her engagement rock -- 'cause there's a simple reason for the vanishing act. We got Lamar and Sabrina Parr outside the Whiskey Mistress bar in ATL, and the fact they showed up together shoulda been our first clue on their relationship status -- as they both pointed out to our photog. We did press Sabrina -- who's a personal trainer -- about deleting the pics, and she chalked it up to a "health and fitness" related cleansing. Mostly, anyway. She also copped to a bit of vanity. The best sign here for LO fans ... Sabrina was wearing her ring. Bottom line ... they're still going just as strong as they were when we spoke to the couple in November and LO praised the hell outta his "star." BTW ... we also asked Sabrina how the wedding dress search is going. The short answer ... not even close. Especially because she's shopping for several of them!!! Yeah, we'll let her explain -- even Lamar had to LOL. (TMZ)

Shaquille O'Neal's Son Shareef Shares Final Message With Kobe Bryant Hours Before Fatal Helicopter Crash. Kobe Bryant's legacy lives on. On Sunday, Shaquille O'Neal's son Shareef O'Neal paid tribute to the late L.A. Lakers legend with a touching post. Showcasing his close bond with the NBA alum, the UCLA college basketball player shared screenshots of his last exchange with Kobe, which occurred hours before his fatal helicopter crash that same day. "You good fam?" Kobe's final message reads, which he sent to check in on Shareef after announcing he'd be leaving the UCLA Bruins. The 20-year-old replied, "Yeah! Just been getting this work in trying to figure out my next move... How you been?" Reflecting on his devastating and unsuspecting loss, Shareef captioned the post, "The first were messages from THIS MORNING!!! .. I wish I didn't sleep in so I could've talked to you .. I can't even think straight right now.. I'm glad we got to bond over the years .. not only were you a great uncle you were a coach and a mentor to me too .." He also shared a series of pictures of himself and Kobe from over the years, including a sweet throwback picture of Shaquille and Kobe from their Lakers days. To conclude the emotional post, Shareef also included a screenshot of another message from Kobe from 2018 to wish the young athlete a speedy recovery ahead of his open-heart surgery. He continued, "I love you man..thank you for everything you've done .. for this city, for the basketball world, and for me ... I won't let you down .. you always counted on me and lifted me up. Love you unc." Shortly after the news that Kobe, his 13-year-old daughter Gianna "GiGi" Maria-Onore Bryant, and seven other people had died, Shaquille took to social media to mourn his longtime friend and teammate. "There's no words to express the pain I'm going through with this tragedy of [losing] my [niece] Gigi & my brother @kobebryant," he tweeted along with a series of photos. "I love u and u will be missed. My condolences goes out to the Bryant family and the families of the other passengers on board. IM SICK RIGHT NOW." He also later added, "Kobe was so much more than an athlete, he was a family man. That was what we had most in common. I would hug his children like they were my own and he would embrace my kids like they were his. His baby girl Gigi was born on the same day as my youngest daughter Me'Arah." Our thoughts are with Kobe's loved ones during this time. (Eonline)

Lakers superfan Jack Nicholson said he was heartbroken over the loss of friend Kobe Bryant, who tragically died in a helicopter crash along with his daughter Gianna, 13, on Sunday in Los Angeles. "My reaction is the same as almost all of LA," the 82-year-old actor told CBS Los Angeles. "Where we think everything's solid, there's a big hole in the wall. I was used to seeing and talking to Kobe that... it kills you. It's just a terrible event." The Oscar winner recalled meeting Bryant at Madison Square Garden in New York. "I teased him the first time we met. I offered him a basketball and asked him if he wanted me to autograph it for him," the actor joked. "He looked at me like I was crazy." Nicholson was often seen cheering on Bryant from his courtside seats at the Staples Center. "I sat right behind his jump shot on the left-hand side. I can see him going up and I can tell the first instant if it's going in," he said. "We'll think of him all the time and we'll miss him. He was just one of those touched people." (Page Six)

Fetty Wap can breathe a sigh of relief ... he will NOT be prosecuted for allegedly manhandling a woman at an after-party. TMZ broke the story ... the rapper was under investigation for felony battery after a woman went to LAPD in June and accused Fetty Wap of roughing her up at a home in the Hollywood Hills. The L.A. County District Attorney's office tells us they are not charging Fetty Wap for the alleged attack ... citing insufficient evidence to prove the case beyond a reasonable doubt. According to legal docs, obtained by TMZ, the D.A. says the alleged victim told police Fetty grabbed her neck and tossed her against a wall. She claims he grabbed her neck again, applying pressure for about a minute and making it difficult for her to breathe. In the docs, the D.A. says the alleged victim initially did not want to press charges and returned home to Louisiana before changing her mind 3 months later. Police say there was a witness, but she refused to provide any identifying information. We obtained video from the aftermath of the incident, and you hear a woman accusing Fetty of putting hands on her, and daring him to do it again. FW then appears to smack the phone. The video alone clearly wasn't enough, as prosecutors rejected the whole matter. Case closed. (TMZ)
