Joshua Jackson condemns racial hostility against his wife, Jodie Turner-Smith
Joshua Jackson, 43, is outraged at the hateful comments his wife, Jodie Turner-Smith, 34, had to read on her Instagram account for some time. The actor recently told The Tonight Show that it was his wife who asked for his hand before the couple tied the knot in 2019. He fondly remembers the romantic moment, but this is now overshadowed by hostile and racist comments from some followers.
In an interview with “Refinery29” he condemns the misogynous attacks on his wife in the strongest possible terms: “Good God, you can’t imagine what some people have written to my wife […] That was a real lesson for me as a white Man. It was a necessary but ugly lesson about how to treat black people, but especially about black women. That’s not okay, there is still so much to be done in this area. “
The “Dawsons Creek” actor advises all people who are uncomfortable with the fact that the woman is allowed to propose marriage to “just be the damn quiet”.

Jennifer Lopez, 52, would love to hear that. Her former fiancé Alex Rodriguez, 46, is forgiving four months after the relationship ended and even strikes an almost warm tone. “Whatever happened to me in the last year, I’m so grateful for it,” he said in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, referring specifically to his time with the actress: “I’ve had an incredible five years and an incredible one Partnership, also when it comes to my daughters – we have learned so much. “
Jennifer and Alex had been engaged since 2019. The couple lived the dream of a seemingly well-functioning blended family, as documented by pictures regularly posted on their Instagram channels with their respective children. The singer brought 13-year-old twins Emme and Max and the former baseball pro daughters Natasha, 16, and Ella, 12, into the relationship.
After the separation of the former dream couple in mid-April 2021, Jennifer quickly found new happiness with her former love Ben Affleck, 49.

We are so grateful for the past five years, how can we improve the next five years based on the knowledge we have gained?’ I’m doing great, “assures Alex. “I am so grateful for where God and the Light have really taken me, and I am very happy. Above all, to see how my girls develop.”

Robbie Williams ruthlessly honest: During his success with “Take That” he hated himself
He was the teen crush of the 90s: Robbie Williams, 47, became famous almost overnight with the boy band “Take That”. For many, he lived the dazzling life of a star. But as Robbie reveals in a podcast, his time in the boy band was one of his darkest. “I hated myself. The highlights of my career were inextricably linked with a really severe, dark depression and deep anxiety. And none of it was fun,” the singer honestly reveals, and with this statement probably shocks one or the other fan.
As Robbie himself says, he couldn’t see anything positive during this time and the fact that he couldn’t enjoy his success only made his condition worse. In 1995 he left the boy band and broke millions of women’s hearts. It was only with his wife Ayda Field, 42, that Robbie’s life returned to calm and stability. The couple met in 2006 and married in 2010. They have four children together.

Relationship from Pheobe Dynevor and Pete Davidson?
As stormy as the relationship between Pheobe Dynevor, 26, and Pete Davidson, 27, began, it seems to be over soon. The “Bridgerton” actress and the comedian are said to have separated again after only five months of relationship. The couple was last seen in a good mood and turtling at Wimbledon in July. Now the two should have separated, it is said.
“Pete and Phoebe had a real whirlwind romance and they were both fully involved from the start,” an insider told The Sun. Now the tide is said to have turned. “It was pretty telling when Phoebe went to Croatia with her friends this week rather than visiting Pete in America.” The reason for the sudden end of the relationship is said to have been the great distance between the actress and the comedian. “It was wild while it lasted … But the distance weighed on them. They will continue to be close, but unless things change drastically, their relationship will not improve.”
Both the British and the American have quite busy schedules right now. While she is in front of the camera in the UK for a new season of the Netflix hit “Bridgerton”, he is working on the comedy show “Saturday Nigh Live” and shooting the film “Meet Cute” in the USA.
