Ken Jennings is the greatest Jeopardy… Vanessa Hudgens & Austin Butler split… Billie Eilish’s song for James Bond… Demi Lovato will make her return… and Thomas Markle could testify against Meghan
It’s official. Ken Jennings is the greatest “Jeopardy!” player of all time. He beat out James Holzhauer and Brad Rutter to take the million dollar prize. Ken has been in several “Jeopardy!” tournaments over the years, and his winnings now total almost $4.4M. He also holds the record for the most consecutive wins with 74. However, Brad Rutter holds the record for all-time winnings with almost $4.7M.
Vanessa Hudgens is into long-term relationships. She and Zac Efron dated for 5 years after meeting on the set of “High School Musical.” Less than a year after they broke up, Vanessa started dating Austin Butler. But now, after 9 years together, Vanessa and Austin are no more. While the internet is very sad for Vanessa, a lot of fans are telling Zac to go get his woman!
At 18, Billie Eilish will become the youngest artist ever to record a theme song for a James Bond movie. She and her brother Finneas co-wrote the song for “No Time to Die,” the 25th movie in the James Bond franchise. The previous record was held by Sheena Easton, who was only 22 when she released the theme for 1981’s “For Your Eyes Only.” Finneas — who happens to be 22 — said, “Writing the theme song for a Bond film is something we’ve been reaming about doing our entire lives. There is no more iconic pairing of music and cinema than the likes of Goldfinger and Live and Let Die. We feel so, so lucky to play a small role in such a legendary franchise. Long live 007.” Billie says she’s still in shock because “James Bond is the coolest film franchise ever to exist.”
In July 2018, we almost lost Demi Lovato to a drug overdose. There were rumors that so much damage had been done to her vocal cords from the efforts to save her and from the overdose itself that she lost her ability to sing. Demi is going to prove those rumor-mongers wrong when she performs at the Grammys on January 26. Performers keep getting added to the show. So far, we’ve got Demi, Billie Eilish, Lizzo, Ariana Grande, Blake Shelton with Gwen Stefani and Aerosmith.
As soon as they announced they wanted to give up their Royal titles, Meghan Markle got the heck outta Dodge and flew back to Canada, where she and 8-month-old baby Archie have been staying in a $14M waterfront mansion on Vancouver Island waiting for daddy to come back. First Prince Harry had to face the fallout of the big announcement, sit through a summit with his family, and now he has just one more obligation — hosting the Rugby League World Cup 2021 draws for the men’s, women’s and wheelchair tournaments at Buckingham Palace on Thursday. After that, he’s off to Canada. But in addition to all this drama, remember that lawsuit Harry and Meghan filed against the British tabloids? Well! Thomas Markle is preparing to testify AGAINST HIS DAUGHTER. Thomas is expected to be called as a key witness for the defense. He’s reportedly already given lawyers the private text messages exchanged between himself and Meghan right before the Royal Wedding.
Meghan filed a lawsuit against the Mail on Sunday newspaper for allegedly unlawfully publishing a letter she wrote to her father. But court documents reveal that he is part of the paper’s defense, reports the Daily Mail, its sister publication. https://t.co/mvTQBKgz95— CNN International (@cnni) January 15, 2020
