cheryl plans secret life in la to raise her second baby

She was notoriously private during her pregnancy with Bear, and was seen out in public on just a handful of occasions after “hibernating” at the Surrey mansion she shared with then-boyfriend Liam Payne. But after confirming she’s ready to have her second child – and is looking for a sperm donor – insiders reveal Cheryl, 36, is preparing to follow suit by going into hiding for her next pregnancy – only this time she is considering doing it in LA, where pals recently told Closer she’s in contact with California Cryobank, which boasts to be the “cream of the crop” for donors. A source says, “Cheryl’s made no secret of her battle with anxiety, and she’s keen to lay low again when she gets pregnant to ensure she puts her wellbeing…

are brad & jen about to make their reunion official?

They drove fans wild when they were caught holding hands backstage at the 2020 Screen Actors Guild Awards in Los Angeles last week. And speculation that the exes are on the brink of a reunion was intensified after a thrilled-looking Brad Pitt was spotted cheering “Oh wow,” when ex-wife Jennifer Aniston won her award. The photographer who took the hand-holding picture later revealed, “The moment was really touching, and you could sense the respect between two people who have known each other 20-plus years and are both outstanding in their field.” Many believe their suspicions were confirmed by Jen’s BFF Courteney Cox, who “liked” several images of the couple from the SAG Awards, including one that she cryptically captioned, “It goddam look like it”, leading fans to believe they are back on. After…

‘meghan will find it harder than ever to avoid scrutiny–just like diana did’

It’s been three weeks since Meghan Markle and Prince Harry dropped the bombshell – dubbed “Megxit” – that they’d be stepping back from the royal family, with Harry saying he hopes they can now have “a more peaceful life”. But since their statement and subsequent relocation to Canada, the couple have been plagued with more controversy than ever. Last week, Meghan’s hostile relationship with her father was once again thrust into the spotlight as Channel 5 aired the documentary Thomas Markle: My Story, in which her 75-year-old dad accused the couple of “destroying the royal family”, as well as vowing to continue giving interviews. LEGAL COMPLAINT Meghan, 38, is set to face her dad in court later this year, with Thomas Markle reportedly preparing to testify against his daughter in a case brought…

lauren sparks fears she’s boozing to mask her pain

‘SHE’S BEEN FEELING SO LOW ABOUT STARTING YET ANOTHER YEAR SINGLE’ She vowed to “never drink again” after telling fans, “I feel like I’m dying” in the midst of a crippling hangover – hours before being hospitalised. But it seems Lauren Goodger’s pledge was short-lived. As she downed Champagne in a swanky London hotel last week, she informed her Instagram followers, “Haven’t had a drop to drink since Christmas Day... Hmmm, maybe it’s deserved.” And friends reveal the former TOWIE star – who has worried fans with her extreme use of fillers in the past – is suffering from crippling back pain caused by her enlarged bottom and is using alcohol to cope. A source says, “Lauren’s been in constant agony with her lower back, as her bum is putting pressure on it. She…
