Apparently, Taylor Swift has a new boyfriend. My source tells me she’s dating British film and theater actor Joe Alwyn, and that she’s been using wigs and disguises to go completely unnoticed while getting to know him in the U.K. After what happened with Tom Hiddleston Taylor is determined to keep this budding relationship under wraps.
According to my source, Taylor is renting a home in North London and has jet set across the pond thanks to private planes and “military-like” efforts taken by her security personnel.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has expressed interest in a White House candidacy, and a new poll shows that, if the election were held today, he’d defeat incumbent President Donald Trump by five percentage points.

Both parties ended marriages last year: David divorced Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Hadid and Katharine split from her husband Nick Cokas last year after a 2014 photo leaked of her kissing her Smash director, Michael Morris.
Did Liam Payne just reveal that he and Cheryl Cole are married? Fans are freaking out after the 23-year-old One Direction heartthrob casually referred to the 33-year-old singer as his “wife” while discussing a photoshoot for his upcoming album. In a recent interview he said, “Straight after I had done all the topless bits, since I couldn’t eat, afterwards I was like In-N-Out Burger. Straight away, boom! I had two double-doubles, two orders of fries. I had everything. It was the best ever…. I left my wife and child at home and I went straight out to In-N-Out burger.” He added, “I’m just kidding.” I’m guessing he calls her his “wife” because she basically is, but I don’t believe it is “official.”
