“Letting go doesn’t mean that you don’t care about someone anymore. It’s just realizing that the only person you really have control over is yourself.” -Deborah Reber Throughout my entire Love Island experience, I stayed true to myself and meant everything I said and that’s all I could do.

The news follows her co-stars Luke Packham and Cassie Lansdell going on The Kyle and Jackie O Show a couple of weeks ago, predicting their breakup.

“He was really keen on the blondes and I don’t think they really gave him a chance,” Luke told the radio duo. “He saw that Cynthia took a liking to him so he went straight over there.”

Cassie agreed, saying she doesn’t think Aaron is the man for her. She also questioned how genuine he is.

A post shared by Scooter Braun (@scooterbraun) on

Quick recap: Earlier this year, Swift learned that her former manager, Scott Borchetta, with whom she’d parted ways in 2018 after 12 years, sold his label Big Machine Records – and the rights to Swift’s previous songs – to Scooter Braun.

The tension escalated last week when Swift made public allegations that Braun and Borchetta have refused access to her older music and performance footage, blocking her from performing them for 12 months: “The message being sent to me is very clear,” she wrote. “Basically, be a good little girl and shut up. Or you’ll be punished.”

Now, Braun claims, things have gone too far.

Uploading a written statement to his Instagram on Friday, he wrote, “@taylorswift Since your public statement last week there have been numerous death threats directed at my family. This morning I spoke out publicly for the first time saying I wouldn’t participate in a social media war,” he wrote.

“However, I came home tonight to find my wife had received a call threatening the safety of our children.”

He followed by claiming he has made attempts to reconcile and diffuse the situation but has been rejected by Swift every time.

He ended by saying, “I continue to wish you the best and hope we can resolve this.”

4. “We were listening”: William and Kate told off a radio host who mocked Princess Charlotte.

Uh oh, there has been a rather awkward moment between a BBC radio host and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Greg James, who hosts BBC 1’s Breakfast With Greg James, announced this week that after mocking their daughter, Princess Charlotte on television, Prince William and Kate Middleton had a quiet word with him.

A few weeks ago, when Princess Charlotte was off to attend her first day of school at Thomas' Battersea in London, James poked fun at the fact she shook the hand of her teacher.

"Who the hell shakes hands with their teacher on the first day?" James said.

Then recently, when attending an event at Kensington Palace, he was face-to-face with the Duke and Duchess.

Greg recalls, “They said: ‘We were listening on the morning of little Charlotte’s first day, and we want to talk to you about the handshaking thing,'” James revealed of the meeting. “I went: ‘Oh God, no!'”

“They’d heard me saying, ‘this school was so posh they had to shake hands with their teacher every day. They were not like that in my day. You were pleased if you got a smile,'” he continues.

Although James did not share how the conversation ended, he said that he's sure it is "absolutely fine" now. Phew.

Australian rapper Iggy Azalea and her boyfriend Playboi Carti have reportedly had US$300,000 worth of belongings stolen from their mansion in Georgia, according to WSB-2.

The items stolen include a $35,000 diamond engagement ring, a $43,000 gold bracelet and a $57,000 gold diamond watch.

It's understood the unknown burglar, who was armed with a gun, got through the backdoor of the house, which the 'Fancy' singer left open for her partner.

Iggy told police that she was in the basement when the house was being robbed but thankfully was not harmed.
