The passing of Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman shock the world this weekend.  Chadwick died of colon cancer at the age of 43.  He had reportedly been diagnosed over four years ago, meaning nearly his entire time playing Black Panther, he was quietly doing his chemotherapy treatments.  (BP’s first appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe was Captain America: Civil War, which came out in 2016, right around the time of Boseman‘s diagnosis.)  
The tweet announcing Chadwick’s passing on his official Twitter account is now the most liked tweet in the history of Twitter.
Liam Payne is engaged! The One Direction singer’s reps confirmed on Friday that Liam is engaged to Maya Henry.  Maya is a 20 year old model from Texas.  They’ve been together at least since August of 2018.  The two were spotted out this weekend in London. She had a massive rock on her finger, and neither were wearing masks. Just saying.

Also, One Direction fans were buzzing after a leaked previously unreleased song emerged this weekend.  "Half the World Away" was recorded in 2012, but failed to make the cut on the album "Take Me Home."


Armie Hammer has been in tons of movies (The Man From UNCLE, The Lone Ranger, The Social Network) but it looks like he’s giving it up, at least temporarily, for a simpler life. Armie, who announced last month that he was splitting with his wife of 10 years, just revealed that he’s been living with a friend and working construction.  He posted on Instagram on his 34th birthday this weekend talking about it while giving a shout out to his friend.
