Marvel’s ‘Black Widow’ debut… Adele & Skepta re-fuel romance rumours… Scooter Braun separates from wife… Angelina Jolie & The Weeknd have been ‘spotted together’… and Britney Spears asks high-powered attorney Mathew RosengartListen to “Showbiz – July 12th, 2021” on Spreaker.
“Black Widow” opened with $80M, crushing the previous post-pandemic box office record “F9” set a couple weeks ago with $70M. But on top of that, “Black Widow” added another $60M from Disney+ and another $78.8M from overseas, for an opening weekend grand total of $218.8M! And it still hasn’t opened in China yet. Domestically, “F9” was a distant second with $10.8M, but so far, it’s earned $541.8M globally. “Boss Baby: Family Business” was third with $8.7M, followed by “The Forever Purge” with $6.7M and “A Quiet Place Part II” with $3M.
I’ve never felt closer to Adele than I do now. She may be worth close to $200M, but Page Six is reporting that Adele was spotted shopping at an outlet mall in San Bernardino, CA. She was with her rumored boyfriend, British rapper Skepta, at the discount Prada store. Back in October, “People” magazine reported that Adele and Skepta were seeing each other, but she denied it at the time. But sources told Page Six that Adele was acting like Skepta’s girlfriend, helping him pick out clothes and giving him feedback on what he tried on.
After 7 years of marriage, Scooter Braun and Yael Cohen are taking a little breather. A source told “People,” “Their friendship is the best it’s ever been but they’re taking some time apart to sort things out.” A second source said, “So many couples went through this during the pandemic. They love each other and just need some time apart and will hopefully bounce back for their kids.” Scooter and Yael share three children. Their sons are 6-year-old Jagger and 4-year-old Levi. Their daughter Hart is 2. While Scooter manages the careers of artists including Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber, Yael founded and serves as CEO of the charity F*** Cancer.
Earlier this month, Angelina Jolie and The Weeknd were seen having dinner together in Santa Monica. That started people whispering that something was up. And this past weekend, the two of them went to Mustafa’s private concert in LA, but it wasn’t terribly romantic. Angelina brought her 16-year-old daughter Zahara and 15-year-old Shiloh. While a source told “The Sun” that the two of them are just friends, The Weeknd has had a huge crush on her for years.
Britney Spears’ court-appointed attorney isn’t staying where he isn’t wanted. Samuel Ingham III has resigned, although he will stay on until Britney finds someone to replace him. According to the “New York Times,” Britney believes the attorney who can finally get her out of this 13-year conservatorship is Mathew Rosengart. But the “Times” reported that it’s unclear how a new attorney will be selected or whether Britney will even have a say in the matter. But in a recent court filing, Britney’s co-conservator Jodi Montgomery asked for permission to assign a guardian ad litem to help Britney choose her own attorney.
