Tomi Lahren

Former MLB catcher JP Arencibia and political commentator Tomi Lahren appear to be moving quickly with their relationship, as the two got engaged over the weekend.

Arencibia proposed to Lahren at the Belle Meade Winery in Nashville, where the two live. The couple shared the big news from their respective Instagram accounts.

While Arencibia and Lahren were first linked earlier this year, they did not confirm the relationship on social media until over the summer. It’s unclear exactly when they started dating, but they are clearly very happy together.

Arencibia, who is of Cuban descent, played for the Toronto Blue Jays, Texas Rangers and Tampa Bay Rays during his six MLB seasons. The 35-year-old announced his retirement in 2017.

Lahren, 29, is a political commentator for FOX Nation. She previously worked for OANN and The Blaze. There was previously a rumor that she was dating Jay Cutler, but nothing ever came of that.

Rich Paul, Adele appear to confirm relationship on Instagram

Rich Paul Adele

One of the most unexpected celebrity couples of the year now appears to be Instagram official.

Grammy-winning singer Adele posted a series of pictures to her Instagram account this weekend, including a selfie with Klutch Sports agent Rich Paul, her rumored boyfriend. The two had attended the wedding of Los Angeles Lakers star Anthony Davis, who is one of Paul’s clients.

The couple definitely seemed to have a lot of fun at the wedding, especially Adele, who was getting down to some Latin beats on the dance floor.

Rumors first started swirling when Adele attended an NBA Finals game in Phoenix over the summer sitting courtside with Paul and LeBron James. Now the two have taken another important step in their relationship by apparently going official with it on social media.

Jay Cutler’s ex Kristin Cavallari dating country singer Chase Rice

Kristin Cavallari

Jay Cutler recently revealed that he is struggling to navigate the dating scene, but the same apparently cannot be said for his ex-wife Kristin Cavallari.

Cavallari has been seeing country singer Chase Rice, according to TMZ. The two have been dating for about two months, though they are said to be keeping things “low-key and casual so far.”

Cavallari and Rice apparently hit it off after being introduced by a mutual friend in Nashville. They do not consider the relationship to be exclusive just yet.

Cutler and Cavallari announced last year that they were getting a divorce. The two were in a fight over money afterwards. There was some mudslinging going around after their split, too.

Just last week, Cutler opened up about being single on his “Uncut with Jay Cutler” podcast. He said he has been using dating apps but explained why being on the open market is so much more challenging for him now.

Cutler and Cavallari began dating in 2010. They got married in 2013 and have three children together.

Stephen Curry’s relationship with father Dell strained over divorce?

Steph Curry

Dell and Stephen Curry are one of the most famous father-son duos in all of sports. But their relationship may now be strained in light of recent events.

MTO News reported this week about the dynamic between the Golden State Warriors star Stephen and his father amid the news that Dell and wife Sonya are divorcing. The report cited a Curry family friend as the alleged source.

“[Steph] has a special relationship with his mother, and so he’s supporting her,” the insider was quoted as saying. “His relationship with his father is strained after this. He’s disappointed that [Dell] would put all their family business out there. He doesn’t believe the accusations against his mother.”

Sonya, the mother of Stephen and his two siblings, recently filed for divorce from Dell after 33 years of marriage, citing alleged infidelity. Dell responded by accusing Sonya of cheating with a former NFL player among other “acts of illicit sexual misconduct” during their marriage. You can read the details contained in the court documents here.

While Sonya filed for divorce on June 14, the news did not break until this week, over two full months later. That may be what the former NBA MVP Stephen is upset with his father about.

Paulina Gretzky, Dustin Johnson have set wedding date, location

Dustin Johnson Paulina Gretzky

Eight years after getting engaged, Dustin Johnson and Paulina Gretzky finally have a wedding date.

Gretzky recently sent her bridesmaids gift baskets that contained save the date cards. The cards revealed that the couple have a date set for the wedding, as well as a location. The two will be getting married at Blackberry Farm in Walland, Tennessee.

Blackberry Farm is a 5-star luxury hotel and resort. They even have a brewery on the property, which covers over 4,200 acres.

Johnson and Paulina met in 2009 but did not begin dating until 2013. They got engaged seven months after dating but have been engaged for years, saying they were not in a hurry to get married. They have two sons together.

Gretzky and Johnson went through a rocky period in their marriage a few years ago after some cheating rumors but appear to have gotten past that.

Johnson won the Masters last year, marking his second career major win. The 37-year-old has 24 career PGA Tour wins.

Jay Cutler struggling with dating since becoming single

Jay Cutler

Jay Cutler acknowledges that dating at age 38 in 2021 isn’t close to what it was like dating when he was younger.

Cutler and Kristin Cavallari announced last year that they were getting a divorce. The two were in a fight over money afterwards. And there was some mudslinging going around too after their split.

Now, the two are single again and on the dating scene. For Cutler, he says that it is “hard.”

Cutler spoke about the dating subject on his “Uncut with Jay Cutler” podcast.

Cutler says that dating is “hard as hell.”

He says the hardest part is not knowing what people want from you, which could range from true love to fame and fortune.

“I think finding out what people really, really want from you, I think that’s probably an issue,” Cutler said on the podcast.

He also says that having children means his priorities are different than if he had no family.

“I’m at a different phase of my life now with kids and priorities are just changed,” Cutler said.

Cutler is using dating apps and social media for dating now, which is completely different from what he was used to.

Cutler and Cavallari began dating in 2010, when online dating wasn’t as prevalent. They got married in 2013 and have three children together.

Cutler last played in the NFL in 2017, when Adam Gase talked him out of retirement to play for the Dolphins. He spent 12 seasons in the NFL, making one Pro Bowl. Cavallari reportedly thought Cutler was “lazy” in retirement.

Sonya Curry Dell Curry

Dell and Sonya Curry are in the process of getting a divorce, and both have accused the other of infidelity. Sonya has admitted to being in a relationship, but Dell claims that relationship started prior to his and Sonya’s separation.

Sonya is the one who filed for divorce, and she said in court documents that Dell cheated on her with multiple women during their marriage. Dell, a former NBA star, responded by accusing Sonya of “acts of illicit sexual misconduct.” He said Sonya cheated prior to the couple’s separation and then lied about it.

According to new court documents obtained by TMZ, Dell says Sonya cheated on him with former New England Patriots tight end Steven Johnson. Dell also claimed that Sonya has been living in Tennessee with Johnson, but Sonya denied that and said she has been living on her own after Dell threw her out. Sonya admitted to being in a relationship but said it began “months” after she and Dell legally separated, which was in March 2020.

Johnson, 56, played at Virginia Tech before spending one season with the Patriots in 1988.

Dell and Sonya are the parents of NBA stars Stephen Curry and Seth Curry. They are known for attending games together and had to come up with extremely creative ways to root for both of their sons at one point. Dell and Sonya have been married since 1988.

Iggy Azalea addresses rumor of affair with Tristan Thompson

Tristan Thompson

Tristan Thompson has been accused of cheating of cheating on Khloe Kardashian multiple times, and one of the latest rumors claimed he did so with rapper Iggy Azalea. Both Thompson and Azalea say there is no truth to that.

Azalea took to Twitter on Sunday to address what she called the “very weird fake news making the rounds.” She claimed she has never been in the same room with Thompson and doesn’t even know him.

Azalea said in another tweet that she is frustrated because she’s a “real person” and doesn’t appreciate when her life “gets disrupted by bullsh–.”

Thompson also seemingly denied the rumor, which began on a YouTuber’s live stream.

Thompson and Kardashian have two children together. They have broken up and gotten back together multiple times. Thompson and Lamar Odom, Kardashian’s ex, got in an Instagram squabble last month, and Khloe did not seem too pleased.

Sonya Curry Dell Curry

Stephen Curry’s parents are known for attending games together to support the Golden State Warriors star and his brother Seth, but they may have to sit in separate sections of the arena going forward.

Dell and Sonya Curry are in the process of getting a divorce, according to a report from TMZ. Sonya filed for divorce on June 14 in North Carolina, and the proceedings are ongoing.

Dell and Sonya met when Dell played basketball and Sonya played volleyball at Virginia Tech in the 1980s. They got married in 1988, which is the year Steph was born. Seth, who currently plays for the Philadelphia 76ers, was born in 1990. Steph and Seth also have a sister, Sydel, who was born in 1994.

Sonya and Dell had to get creative to find ways to support their sons when Steph and Seth became the first brothers to play against each other in an NBA Conference Finals back in 2019.

Dell played in the NBA from 1986 through 2002. He was named the NBA Sixth Man of the Year with the Charlotte Hornets in 1994.

Tiger Woods broke up with first girlfriend Dina Parr in most cold-hearted letter

Tiger Woods

Tiger Woods broke up with his first girlfriend, high school sweetheart Dina Parr, in the most cold-hearted way, with a cold-hearted letter.

Parr was one of the subjects interviewed for the HBO documentary on Woods, “Tiger,” that was released earlier this year. The documentary was very well done and explores much of the background that went into building Tiger into a golf prodigy.

Woods was raised by his parents to become a golfing machine and the greatest golfer ever. That meant he would have no time for distractions or problems, such as a serious girlfriend.

In the documentary, Parr, who was Dina Gravell at the time, told the story of her relationship with Tiger. She also shared how and why she believes their relationship ended.

“Earl and Tida (Tiger’s parents), they had this image of who he was supposed to be. And I think they were worried about me, because I certainly didn’t fit in to that,” Parr said in the documentary.

“I felt like their plans were creating this robot. There was all this preparation for golf, which is great. You’re going to be a great golfer. But he had no life skills. He had not been prepared for life,” Parr said of Tiger. “And I was probably the only person around him that really kept him in check. And I would tell him, ‘you are going to want to get married and have kids and golf is not going to be the most important thing. You are going to have to find that balance.’

“He would say, ‘I’m in love with you. I want that. I just want to have a life with you.'”

So what were the circumstances that led to the breakup? It all started with a lie.

Tiger and Dina met in an accounting class when they were in high school. Their relationship lasted for three years but ended after Woods returned home from college and lied to his parents.

According to longtime family friend Joe Grohman, who was a teaching pro at the Navy golf course where Woods practiced, Tiger lied about coming home from college. Tiger told his parents he was coming home from college the next day. But he actually had arrived the day before and stayed at Parr’s house.

When they found out about the lie, Woods’ parents were furious with their son. Tiger was scared and unsure what to do, so he called Grohman, the golf teacher recalled.

Grohman recalled that he went over to the house and was shocked at how angry Woods’ parents were. He recalled Tida dropping g-d damns all over the place. Earl Woods was furious too.

“We don’t need this. She’s going to get pregnant and blow this whole thing!” Grohman recalls Earl said.

They were so mad that they were ready to kick Tiger out of the house, according to Grohman. Tiger was “spooked” by the incident, according to Grohman.

So what happened next? Tiger wrote Dina a letter breaking up with her.

Here is what the letter said, according to Parr:

“Dina, the reason for writing this letter is to inform you my parents and myself never want to talk or hear from you again. Reflecting back over this relationship, I feel used and manipulated by you and your family. I hope the rest of your life runs well for you. I know this is sudden and a surprise. But it is, in my opinion, much warranted.

Sincerely,
Tiger”

Parr then shared her thoughts on the letter.

“It was awful. We had been in this three-year relationship. And I thought about, should I drive over there? I just wanted to confront him. I just wanted him to look me in the face and tell me this. If it’s the truth, then we’re good. Then our relationship was a whole lie. That’s fine. But I want to hear it from you,” Parr said.

“I replay that day in my head over and over again. What happened? What really triggered all this? But it has to be that it was just the plan.”

What likely happened is Woods’ parents forced him to break up with her to focus on golf, and he did.

Parr, who just had seen a 3-year relationship end over a letter and received no closure, says she had to treat it like a death.

“It was like a death. And I had to treat it like a death, because I had to just let it go and pretend like he was gone. Because, honestly, the person that I fell in love with, the Tiger that I had known, had died. That part of him, that part of his soul that I knew, would never treat me that way. His sweetness was stolen from him. The new Tiger was here … and he was all about golf.”

Parr described Tiger in the documentary as a sweet guy who would let his hair down when he was with her. But Woods’ parents decided there would be no room for that in his life and seemingly forced him to cut it off with her.

This all happened well before Tiger’s infamous sex scandal that began in 2009. Woods got married in 2004, but the marriage unraveled after his ex-wife discovered he was cheating on her. That set off a scandal where numerous women came out and said they had sexual relationships with the golfer, all while he was married.

Also in the documentary, we learned of Tiger’s final message to his most well-known mistress, Rachel Uchitel.
