Are Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen Marriage at the ‘Breaking Point’?

Tom Brady is gearing up for the 2022 NFL season but he is currently not with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers due to “personal” reasons. Because Brady’s entering his 23rd season, he doesn’t need to be at every training camp practice. But is the reason for this his time off due to him and his wife Gisele Bündchen being on the verge of a divorce?

Life & Style (per Suggest) recently released a cover story about Brady’s decision to unretire from the NFL may have cost him his marriage. Bündchen reportedly “went berserk” when learning of the return. “She can’t understand why he’s putting football before their marriage again,” the source reportedly says. It was also reported that fights are mounting and at a breaking point. “She put her life and career on hold so he could thrive, and she’s done doing it,” the source continued. “He’s put himself first, and she’s had to make too many sacrifices. Friends are whispering that if he doesn’t take her threats seriously, it could lead to divorce.”

In May, Bündchen spoke to Vogue about her and Brady’s role in their marriage. “I don’t think relationships just happen; it’s never the fairy tale people want to believe it is. It takes work to be really in sync with someone, especially after you have kids,” she says. “His focus is on his career, mine is mostly on the kids. And I’m very grateful that he lets me take the reins when it comes to our family. He trusts my decisions.”

Queen Elizabeth Won’t Be Seeing Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Once They Return to the UK

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are arriving back to the U.K. next month, but unfortunately they probably won’t get to spend time with Queen Elizabeth II. According to a report by Express, the queen has been advised to stay in Scotland, where she has been staying at her residence, Balmoral Castle. This is apparently due to the queen’s health, including her occasional mobility issues.

Queen Elizabeth is 96 years old, and she has had a few frightening health incidents in recent years including COVID-19 that had her hospitalized temporarily. Earlier this year, spokespeople for Buckingham Palace confirmed that the queen is also having “episodic mobility issues,” and she has since been seen walking with a cane. The queen has cut back on travel, has made public appearances in pre-recorded videos and has even sent her heir, Prince Charles to stand in for her at certain events.

“While I may not have attended every event in person, my heart has been with you all; and I remain committed to serving you to the best of my ability, supported by my family,” the queen said in June during her Platinum Jubilee events.

Olivia Rodrigo to induct Canadian Songwriters Alanis Morissette into Hall of Fame

Olivia Rodrigo will get to pay tribute to one of her influential musical icons on September 24 when she inducts Alanis Morissette into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame. As part of the induction, Alessia Cara and JP Saxe will perform some of Morissette’s most beloved songs along with Ruby Waters.

“I remember hearing Alanis for the first time when I was about 13. I was in the car with my parents when Jagged Little Pill came on,” Rodrigo said in a statement about the galvanizing impact of Morissette’s music on her. “I heard ‘Perfect,’ I was like, ‘Oh, my God … You can write songs like that?’ I just looked at music and songwriting in a completely different way.”

Rodrigo and Morissette first worked together for the cover of Rolling Stones’ “Musicians on Musicians” series in October 2021, and in May of this year, Rodrigo surprised fans at her Sour tour stop at L.A.’s Greek Theater by bringing Alanis out for a duet on “You Oughta Know.”

The event will take place at Massey Hall in Toronto, and also include induction ceremonies for Bryan Adams, four-time Juno Award-winning songwriter Jim Vallance (Bryan Adams, Aerosmith), songwriter David Foster (Celine Dion, Whitney Houston) and and beloved singer-songwriter Daniel Lavoie (“Ils s’aiment”).

A$AP Rocky Charged With Assault Over Hollywood Shooting

Rapper A$AP Rocky has been charged with two counts of assault with a firearm, Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón announced on Monday afternoon August 15. Rocky is set to be arraigned on Wednesday.

“Discharging a gun in a public place is a serious offense that could have ended with tragic consequences not only for the person targeted but also for innocent bystanders visiting Hollywood,” Gascón said in a statement. “My office conducted a thorough review of the evidence in this case and determined that the addition of a special firearm allegation was warranted.”

It was reported last week that the alleged victim is a form friend, A$AP Relli.

Back in April, A$AP Rocky was arrested at Los Angeles International Airport in connection with the shooting, which took place on November 6, 2021 in Hollywood. A$AP Rocky was arrested at the airport on his way back to the U.S. from Barbados, where he was on vacation with his fiancée, Rihanna.

Brittney Griner Files Appeal Following 9 Year Prison Sentence

WNBA star Brittney Griner filed an appeal on Monday after being sentenced to nine years in prison. Griner was detained in Russia back in February after being found with vape canisters that contained cannabis oil in her luggage at the airport.

The appeal was no surprise as Griner’s lawyers already made plans to file it once she was convicted. Griner admitted that she had canisters in her luggage but said it was accidentally packed and had no intent on breaking the law. Griner’s lawyers argued that the sentence was extreme and defendants in similar cases received on average a five year prison sentence.
