AS far as stories to tell the grandkids go, how LINDSAY LOHAN met her new man is up there with the most unusual.The actress, who split from Russian heir Egor Tarabasov in July after a series of very public rows, is now dating restaurant and bar owner Dennis Papageorgiou.And there was no Tinder involved.I can reveal Dennis was actually the man who stepped in when it all got heated between Lindsay and Egor on the Greek island of Mykonos earlier this year.The row spelled the beginning of the end of their relationship.Dennis broke up the spat, which saw Egor throw a drink over Lindsay after she chucked his phone in the sea, which I told you about in July.The pair, who split later that month, were then later captured on camera fighting as Egor violently pulled her arm behind her back in a bid to grab his phone from her.

It shows how antiquated the electoral system is and how undemocratic it is.“It’s crazy that our leader has been picked by the minority and is proposing to do so many dangerous things to … [Read more...] about John Legend on Trump, family, forays into the film world, and new music about the darker side of love and life
FOLLOWING the record smashing release of Divide and an incredible Glastonbury headline set watched by more than four million on TV, ED SHEERAN’s fourth album is the most anticipated in the world.And in an exclusive interview, the Suffolk superstar reveals he has already been secretly making the album for six years.He told me: “I’ve been working on this one since the same time as Plus. Every year I write a song that will go on it.“So I have about six, seven at the moment.”But fans expecting another Shape Of You might be disappointed, because Ed is taking a different musical direction.He explained: “It’s not necessarily experimental but I don’t think there’ll be any hot radio songs on it this time. It’s a very acoustic record, very acoustic.”Ed gave me more information about the fourth record than he’s let slip to anyone before, but he wouldn’t go as far as confirming that it will be called Subtract, as is … [Read more...] about Ed Sheeran reveals he has secretly been making his hotly anticipated fourth album Subtract for SIX years after Glastonbury gig
