It’s Fri-yaaay!!! We’re excited about the weekend and the final roundup for the week so we curated the biggest news from yesterday and the ones that unraveled while you slept.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt may not be getting a divorce afterall
Remember the Brangelina split that brought tears to our eyes in 2016?
Well, there’s fresh hope that it may not be actualized.
Last year, star Hollywood actress, Angelina Jolie had filed for divorce from her husband of 2 years and partner of 12, Brad Pitt citing “irreconciliable differences”.
Now a source who spoke to E!News says the former couple may not be going ahead with the divorce as “they are taking a breather to see what happens”.
The source adds “They don’t take divorce lightly and want to make sure they are doing the right thing”. At the heart of this decision is the impact the divorce may have on their 6 children.
But will they be getting back together? We hear their future are “up in the air”.
So someone got arrested for dabbing in Saudi Arabi
Well it turns out dabbing has been banned in Saudi Arabia for supposed associations with narcotics but this native actor and singer, Abdallah Al Shaharani may have forgotten the laws of the land.
Al Shaharani while on stage at a musical festival in Taif dropped his mic while the audience and did a dab.
Secretary-General of the National Committee for Drug Control, Abdul-Ella Al-Sharif told Saudi’s Okaz newspaper that, “contrary to the national strategy to combat drugs and he had been arrested in the same way anyone who incites or advocates for abuse of drugs would”.
UK news site, Independent reports that the arrest caused an uproar on social media with people debating on whether Al Shaharani should be punished.
The erring singer tweeted an apology, “I am most apologetic to our honourable government and my dear president for the spontaneous movement I made in the Ta’if Festival. Accept my apology”.
LESSON: Do not do the dab when you’re in Saudi.
