Weekend box office news… Sean McVay engaged to model… Tom Holland has more spoilers… Nicki Minaj got a marriage licence… and BET Awards winners
It didn’t make as much as they predicted, but “Toy Story 4” still won the box office. They were thinking it would earn somewhere between $140M and $165M, so does that mean they’re disappointed with $118M? Coming in second was “Child’s Play.” The remake of the 1988 movie about that Chucky doll took in $14M. “Aladdin” was third with $12.2M.
Congratulations to LA Rams head coach Sean McVay. His super hot Ukrainian model girlfriend Veronika Khomyn is now his super hot Ukrainian model fiancee. He popped the question while they were on vacation in the French Riviera. Sean and Veronika started dating about 8 years ago when she was a student at George Mason University in Virginia and he was an assistant coach on the Washington Redskins.
Tom Holland is known for spoiling major plot points in Marvel movies, but we have to give him a break on this one. During his appearance on “The Graham Norton Show” Friday, Tom revealed who died at the end of “Avengers: Endgame,” which leads directly into the plot line for his new movie “Spider-Man: Far From Home.” He got ripped for it on social media, but come on…this movie has been out for months now! Even the directors said we could all talk about it after it was out for two weeks.
Nicki Minaj is ready to walk down the aisle with her man, Kenneth Petty. On her radio show, Nicki revealed that they’ve already gotten a marriage license. She said, “I think I have what I was striving for, just happiness. It was so hard to get to a happy place. Now that I’m there, I don’t want to compromise that for anyone or anything.” Nicki and Kenneth have known each other since high school. They reconnected a few years after after he got out prison. Kenneth served 7 years for manslaughter and is also a registered sex offender.
