Is Tom Hardy The New Bond?

Hollywood star Tom Hardy will be taking over the James Bond role as Daniel Craig’s successor, according to reports.

Although the news has not been officially confirmed, reports claim the casting decision has been made and adds that the public announcement is expected either towards the end of 2020 or in early 2021.

The source now offers that the announcement may still come out this year, or if No Time To Die gets delayed again, in early 2021.

“I heard about this news back in June,” tweeted the source. “At that point, Hardy’s casting wasn’t official but he had been auditioning and was basically locked into the role. It’s similar to how Craig said that he got the role of Bond and then months later it was officially announced.”

As noted, Tom Hardy has been rumored for a while by the UK tabloid sites, but the scooper says now it’s a done deal. Hardy was also listed as a top contender to play the new James Bond by various bookmakers. 

46-year-old Idris Elba has been one of the hot favourites to replace Daniel Craig as James Bond. The competition included the likes of Richard Madden, Tom Hiddleston and of course Tom Hardy, all of whom are often asked if they’d like to play 007 next.

Elba opened up last year on the prospect of taking up the Licence to Kill, being honest that he’d love to if asked but doesn’t want to be judged by his skin colour. Speaking with Vanity Fair, Elba said: “James Bond is a hugely coveted, iconic, beloved character, that takes audiences on this massive escapism journey

Beats Headphones Mogul’s Ex Wife Wants $2m Monthly Spousal Support

The incredible demand includes a whooping $20k for phone and emails!

Nicole Young had become accustomed to an incredibly lavish lifestyle as the wife of a near billionaire. And following her filing for divorce from rap music artist, producer and entrepreneur Dr Dre, after 24 years of marriage, she’s asking for almost $2 million a month to ensure she maintains her Champagne lifestyle.

According to legal documents obtained by TMZ, Dr. Dre’s soon-to-be ex-wife has provided a list of monthly expenses that explain why she needs $1,936,399 in temporary spousal support.The document list some unbelievable expenses, such as:

  1. $135,000 a month on clothes,
  2. $20,000 a month on phone and email,
  3. $10,000 a month on laundry,
  4. And a whopping $900,000 a month on entertainment!

According to TMZ Dre is currently covering his ex wife’s expenses, which includes the cost of chefs, security, and maintenance for their home in Malibu, where she currently resides.

Young’s outrageous demands are in stark contrast to the conditions of a prenuptial agreement which she signed but however claims she was forced to under duress and coercion. In court documents, she claimed: “I was extremely reluctant, resistant and afraid to sign the agreement and felt backed into a corner”

She further claimed that two years into the marriage, “Andre acknowledged to me that he felt ashamed he had pressured me into signing a premarital agreement and he tore up multiple copies of the agreement in front of me. Since the day he tore up the agreements, we both understood that there was no premarital agreement and that it was null and void.”

Since the day he tore up the agreements, we both understood that there was no premarital agreement and that it was null and void.”

But Dre is rejecting her claims and says he never expressed any shame about the deal and he never tore up and documents relating to the deal. And as far as he and his lawyers are concerned the agreement is still valid.

Kanye West’s song #Golddigger comes to mind.
Babe has really struck gold. But then, it couldn’t have been easy being married to a real gang/rapstar for 24 years!

Dre’s net worth

Forbes estimates that Dr Dre’s net worth is somewhere around $800 million after he sold Beats by Dre to Apple in 2014 for $3 billion. Dr Dre originally made his money from his record labels which saw him become a very rich man. Dre makes money for his works as a producer, but he also still does perform as a rap artist from time to time.
Dr Dre also owns about $80 million in real estate in Los Angeles alone.


Tiwa Savage, Don Jazzy Quizzed By DSS Over Anti Buhari Statements

Nigerian music producer, Don Jazzy, and Afrobeats songstress Tiwa Savage, have been questioned by officials of the Department of State Services over alleged political utterances against the administration of President Muhamamdu Buhari. 

Following a sharp rise in sexual assault cases against women across Nigeria in recent months, Tiwa Savage began a movement known as “WeAreTired” in protest of the situation.

Through the movement, the musician called on Buhari’s administration to take action to stem the tide of rape in the country. 

According to SaharaRepoters, the questioning was also in relation to several posts on social media calling on the government to live up to its responsibilities to Nigerians.

Together with Don Jazzy also known as Micheal Ajere, Savage was invited to the DSS office in Lagos two weeks ago during which they were strictly warned to be careful with what they post on social media. 

Meanwhile, it was revealed that singers Yemi Alade and Waje were also summoned by the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Zubairu Muazu, who also warned the musicians to steer clear of political comments in order not to incur the wrath of the President Buhari administration.

A member of Tiwa Savage’s management team, said that the artiste will not stop speaking up for Nigerians.

But it would seem that both Don Jazzy and Tiwa Savage have chosen to heed the warnings of the DSS and have recently toned down their social media posts.

Chase TV Show Quizzer Splits From Wife As Open Marriage Fails

This story will give a warning sound to people in unconventional relationships that –  contrary to what is always maintained, the so called open marriage or relationship does not always work, as one partner is bound to get jealous at some point.

Others simply harbour feelings of resentment towards their partner but chose to keep quiet in order to respect the agreed terms of the relationship.

But the silence does not always last and at some point, their true feelings regarding the situation are expressed.

This often leads to the break down in the relationship.

The Chase star Mark Labbett recently split from his wife after their open marriage failed to work, AOL has reported.

The 55-year-old TV quizzer and Katie, 28, have been married for seven years and have a three-year-old son together.

Labbett, known on the quiz show as The Beast, told The Sun On Sunday that “it’s got to the point now where I realise it is better for us to go our separate ways and remain friendly”.

He said the couple spent the past 18 months trying to make their unconventional marriage work after Katie told him about an affair.

“When Katie first came clean to me about her boyfriend, I’d had an inkling,” he said.

“But right from the start, my attitude was quite pragmatic – this was spilt milk, what could we do about the situation to make it OK?

“We had a family. We couldn’t just throw that away lightly. There were other considerations.

“But Covid provided the perfect storm. My mental health suffered and the differences in our ages became magnified.

“It’s got to the point where I realise it’s better for us to go our separate ways and remain friendly, without the stress factor of living together.”

Katie said: “I want everyone to know what’s what and that we are all happy. I just want Mark to be happy.”

The pair previously revealed that they discovered, after getting together, that they are second cousins, but “it wasn’t something we were aware of at the time”.

Labbett’s agent David Hahn said in a statement: “We can confirm Mark and Katie have split but will not be making any further comment. “

“Anthony Joshua Is A S***house” – Tyson Fury

The slur used by Donald Trump to describe African countries reportedly came from Gypsy King, the WBC Champion Tyson Fury in a war of words preceding the highly anticipated 2021 fight against the Brit-Nigerian heavyweight champion.

According to former super middleweight champion Carl Froch, Tyson told him in a direct inbox message that he believes “the fight won’t happen, the man’s a shithouse. He and his promoter (Eddie Hearn) know I’ll go through him like a hot knife through butter”

Actually, the message read s***house but we are in no doubt as to what exactly he must have meant. We do not however know if it was meant as a racist slur

Froch said Tyson responded by putting up on his instagram wall, a picture of him and AJ facing off.

On Fury’s outburst, Frock says “He genuinely doesn’t think Joshua or Hearn want the fight, but I think they do. AJ has to take the fight or his credibility has gone”

The gypsy’s fighting talk has cast doubt over the so called “Battle of Britain” . Although key details of the fight are yet to be discussed, finances on the two deal fight have been agreed.

Fury must first come through his trilogy clash with Deontay Wilder before the FURY v AJ fight can happen. One cannot help but wonder if Fury is mirroring his own fears of not coming out well from the fight with Wilder.

Meanwhile, speaking on a recent Sky TV show, AJ the two-time unified heavyweight champion said of the fight “I have a lot of respect for the man……., he’s a good fighter, but on the other hand, I want to break his head” He then made an unequivocal prediction of a 6th round take-out of the gypsy king. “First six rounds, I think. well I know I.m going to take him out then” he said. “

“I have a shorter career so I’m fresher. I’ve been in the deep end longer so I can handle the pressure and I believe I’m going to take him out!

Fighting talk from a classy champion. We cannot wait to see his predictions come to pass.
