Chance The Rapper Ties The Knot – Tha Wire
Today in Tha Wire a lot happened in Hollywood last and here are a few of the biggest moments:
For starters Chance The Rapper got married to his longtime girlfriend/fiance' and mother of their daughter Kensli, Kirsten Corley. The two walked down the isle surrounded by family and friends on Friday, March 9th in Newport Beach, Cali. HotNewHipHop reports among the many celebs in the building were grooms music idols and mentors like Kanye West, Dave Chappelle, and Kirk Franklin to name a few. Peep some of the gorgeous pics below from their special day.
Not that it really matters, The Chicago Tribune reports this is the second time the happy couple has said: "I Do!" The Tribune obtained a copy of their marriage certificate from the Cook County clerk’s office last Thursday and it revealed they've been married since last year. Turn out Chance and Kirsten had a civil ceremony in Chicago and were officially married by Judge Scott McKenna on December 27, 2018. Be that as it may, it's obvious they planned for the ceremony to go down at a later date, and we send our congrats to them both!
In more good news, former Today journalist and talk show host Tamron Hall revealed the exciting news last week that she's not only married, but expecting her first child. What's really shocking is the fact that nobody knew the talented star was pregnant! So, her wonderful news has caught everyone by surprise.
According to HipHollywood, Tamron had been dating music exec Steven Greener for a little more than two years and they got married last week! As far as her pregnancy, based on what she said in her caption, she was waiting on her doctors to confirm she'd be able to carry her child to term. As you can see below the beautiful star is sporting a pretty big baby bump.
She's actually 8 months pregnant and is over-the-moon with joy now that she can share her joyous news with the world. After months of worry and close calls, doctors said she was now at a "safe stage in her pregnancy." We wish her and Steven the absolute best!
If that's not enough, if you've been missing her beautiful face on TV you'd be happy to know she's gearing up to stage a HUGE return to the small screen this Fall!. According to Variety this September she'll be hosting her very own daytime talk show on ABC own networks. You go gurl!
In other good news, it looks like Alex Rodriquez realized 49-year old J-Lo was THE ONE. Over the weekend while on vacation in the Bahamas, the 43-yr MLB great put a ring on it! A big ass ring. Matter of fact it's the biggest one yet. The new engagement ring will be the 5th one the dancer/singer/actress has been gifted. Unfortunately Jennifer Lopez has been engaged 5 times and married 3 times, each ending in divorce.
All of her rings were in the 6-figure, so girlfriend is doing pretty good on that front. Her last husband singer/actor Marc Anthony proposed with a stunning 8.5-carat blue diamond rock from Harry Winston worth $4 million. Not that it's a completion Rodriguez made sure he topped Anthony's blinged-out pledge of love by going up a few carats. FOX News reports the MLB star gave Jenny from the block a phenomenal 15-carat emerald-cut diamond, witch is estimated to be worth around $5 million. Wow! We are pulling for you both, and certainly send our congratulations.
Finally...the bad news. Things just went from bad to worse for Empire actor Jussie Smollett. In spite of maintaining his innocence, he was indicted with 16 felony counts of disorderly conduct by a grand jury. Police are calling the Jan. 29 incident a hoax and concluded in their investigation that the 36-year star allegedly staged a bogus hate crime attack on himself.
It's unclear if the actor could be put in jail, but this doesn't look good. USA Today reports Smollett will be arraigned for what prosecutors are calling a "false report of offense” on March 14, 2019 and we'll see what happens from there.
