Happy New Year! Here we are turning the page and starting a new chapter. Are you ready for it? We’re barely into 2020 and we’ve already seen some drama out of Hollywood, and the first awards show—the Golden Globes—of the season has already happened! Have you recovered enough from the holidays to keep up with the latest? If not, we’ve got you covered.
Jade Roper Accused of Cheating
The NFL playoffs are heating up as the remaining teams vie for a spot in the Super Bowl. Sunday saw a lot of action on the gridiron and in the fantasy leagues. In fact, the Sunday’s DraftKings daily sports contest was won by an unlikely name you might recognize.
Former Bachelor contestant, Jade Roper Tolbert, who met her husband, Tanner Tolbert, on Bachelor in Paradise, took home the $1 million Fantasy Football prize, and Twitter exploded with shocked reactions. While some congratulated her, others accused her of cheating.
“Everyone realizes the two of them max entered and split their player exposure, right? And that is illegal,” one Twitter user wrote. Another shared a screenshot of Jade and Tanner’s lineups and alleged, “She and her husband cheated, end of story.”
While Jade has yet to address the controversy, several outlets including TMZ, are reporting that DraftKings is investigating the situation. The plot thickens!
Meghan Markle’s Return
After enjoying some privacy in Canada over the holidays, it’s been announced that Meghan and Prince Harry will be repaying some of the kindness. Their first royal engagement of 2020 will involve a visit to the Canada House in London on January 7.
There, the couple will meet with Janice Charette, High Commissioner in Canada to the U.K. as well as staff “to thank them for the warm Canadian hospitality and support they received during their recent stay in Canada.” They’ll also pay a visit to the special exhibition by Indigenous Canadian artist, Skawennati, at the Canada Gallery.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex celebrated Commonwealth Day at Canada House in March 2019. The couple have shown an immense fondness for the country, with Meghan having lived in Toronto while she was filming the USA Network series, Suits.
Adele Vacations with Harry Styles
British singers, Adele and Harry Styles, were spotted enjoying some downtime in Anguilla, and fans on the internet collectively lost their minds, (it should be noted, though, that James Corden was there too!). Not only were people stunned by Adele’s very obvious weight loss and the fact that they both seemed to be living their best lives, but commenters wondered why the pair might be on vacation together.
Styles has been busy promoting his new album, Fine Line, as he prepares for a tour this year. Meanwhile, Adele has been keeping things pretty lowkey recently. Are they dating? Are they working on a collaboration? Are they just good friends having a great time? It’s anyone’s guess, and we may never find out, but we wish them the best!
