Nastia Liukin’s engagement to Matt Lombardi… Nick Young asked Iggy Azalea the big question… Lil Wayne charged a ref at a charity basketball game… Enrique Iglesias’ reconstructive hand surgery… and Caitlyn Jenner makes her debut
Based upon the photo she posted of her manicured hand, she knew this was coming. Nastia Liukin is engaged to Matt Lombardi, the founder of a sports team coaching platform called VentureUp. That sparkly ring sure takes the sting out of not winning that sparkly mirror ball trophy on “Dancing With the Stars.”
Swaggy P popped the question! At his 30th birthday party Monday night, Lakers player Nick Young dropped down on one knee and asked Iggy Azalea to be his bride. Of course, she said yes. One of the guests at the party posted the proposal online. Later, Iggy posted a picture of her new fiancé and her new bling, which Nick helped design. It’s a 10.43 carat ring from Jason of Beverly Hills. The ring features an 8.15 carat Fancy Intense Yellow cushion cut center stone with 2.28 carats of white diamonds surrounding it, all set onto an 18 karat white gold band. The price tag? $500,000.
During a celebrity charity basketball game in St. Louis Sunday, Lil Wayne believed one of the referees blew some calls, and he didn’t like it one bit. At first, Weezy spit at the guy, but then he charged after the ref, who ran into the stands to escape. That led to both benches being cleared and a huge fight, which had to be broken up by police. Oh, and about the charity basketball game all these guys were playing for? It was to promote non-violence.
His rep released a statement yesterday saying that Enrique Iglesias had to undergo reconstructive hand surgery to repair the damage from that drone incident at his concert in Tijuana. He said that Enrique will perform his July 3rd show in Mexico City, as scheduled.
On the cover of “Vanity Fair,” she asks us to call her Caitlin, but mama says she’s still going to call her Bruce. Esther Jenner told “Access Hollywood” that even though she’s happy for her child and thinks she’s beautiful, she’s going to continue to call him the name she and her husband gave him 65 years ago. I’m sure Caitlin understands. In other news, it only took about 4 hours for Caitlin Jenner’s Twitter account to reach one million followers, breaking the previous record held by President Obama. It took him about 5 hours to reach a million followers.
