Sources have said Lipa was pictured "by Hadid's side" on Instagram stories as his guests sang 'Happy Birthday' to him. Lipa and Gigi are meant to be close friends, which could explain the link to Anwar.
The Sun has also claimed that Lipa and Hadid have gone on a “string of dates"'; “Dua and Isaac have a lot of history and he holds a special place in her heart,” an insider told the tabloid.
“But she has been in Los Angeles almost every day since they split again and she has been able to spend time with Anwar, who she really gets on with. They are a lot closer in age and it’s just been fun," the source added.
"It’s a confusing time for both Dua and Isaac but she is just going with the flow and doing what feels right.”
Carew dated Lipa between 2013 and 2017, but the pair called time on their romance. Dua then dated Paul Klein, the lead singer of band LANY, but rekindled her relationship with Carew last year and attended the Met Gala with him in May.
“Dua and Isaac have really struggled to see each other since getting back together,” a source told The Sun. “They wanted to make things work and things were great between them for a while but she is just getting busier and busier.
“She is gearing up to release new music and has basically been performing across the world non-stop for the past three years so it’s been tough. It’s been a difficult decision but ultimately they haven’t been able to make things work"
Hadid and Lipa could be just friends, of course, but boy would they make a damn handsome couple.
Can you believe it's been two years since April 28, 2017?
The day when mass chaos occurred in the Bahamas after Fyre Fest descended into disarray, with musical acts dropping out, no food and water and fake amenities similar to a refugee camp.
Marketed by the industry's most valuable influencers such as Hailey Baldwin and Kendall Jenner as the Coachella of the tropical islands, the festival organisers committed total fraud and lost thousands of dollars.
The upper class scandal led to aHulu and Netflix documentary, GoFundMe pages set up for all the staff who were duped out of money in their home of the Bahamas, and arrests being made.
Tickets cost thousands of dollars and gained notoriety through the famous 'orange tile' advertising by famous models on Instagram such as Bella Hadid.
Let's just say it DEFINITELY was not what it was advertised, with glamorous rich folks receiving sad pieces of cheese on bread instead of gourmet meals, and had no place to lodge at all in the middle of a deserted island.
The festival organiser, Billy McFarland, 'fully postponed' the event after pretty much everyone had already arrived. Smart.
"After assessing the situation this morning and looking at best options for our guests, we cannot move forward as we hoped we could. At this time, we are working tirelessly to get flights scheduled and get all travelers home safely," they quoted at the time.
Ja Rule, a rapper who befriended Billy McFarland at the time and co-organised the event, assured attendees that Fyre Fest was "not a scam" and that he was heartbroken about the scenario. He faced his share of backlash, deservedly so.
He tweeted; "I too was hustled, scammed, bamboozled, hood winked, lead astray!!!" Mmmmhmmm. McFarland was charged with wire fraud and sentenced to six years in prison, where he currently is still serving his time in Otisville
Where are they now, though? Let's start with good old Billy McFarland.
McFarland is sharing a prison with Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino. He was found guilty of defrauding investors of the festival out of a whopping $26 million in November 2018.
He plead guilty to two counts of wire fraud, and faces three years of supervised release when he completes his sentence. The 27-year-old issued an apology to People, saying;
"I am incredibly sorry for my collective actions and will right the wrongs I have delivered to my family, friends, partners, associates and, you, the general public," he said.
"I've always sought – and dreamed – to accomplish incredible things by pushing the envelope to deliver for a common good, but I made many wrong and immature decisions along the way and I caused agony."
"As a result, I've lived every day in prison with pain, and I will continue to do so until I am able to make up for some of this harm through work and actions that society finds respectable."
The Hulu documentary claims that McFarland is teaching a music entrepreneurship class to fellow inmates of the Otisville Federal Correctional Facility in NYC.
While the rapper didn't take part in either documentary, he was heavily featured in both. Fair enough, considering he was Fyre's co-founder and worked very closely with McFarland.
The 42-year-old has remained seemingly in the clear since his partner went behind bars, famously defending himself as clueless on social media,
"I had an amazing vision to create a festival like NO OTHER! I would NEVER SCAM or FRAUD anyone what sense does that make?" he tweeted. Nevertheless, he was subjected to multiple lawsuits due to his ties.
Ja Rule has since begun a new investment in an app called ICONN, a "celebrity entertainment book & concierge service." Hmmm, we feel like we've heard this one before. "It's very different, but it's similar," he admitted.
Bless his wee soul. Poor Andy is now remembered as the key player who attempted to save the doomed festival through using any means necessary.
He quickly became an Internet sensation after the Netflix documentary aired, with McFarland asking him to "take one for the team" and perform oral sex on a customs official so they could get bottled water delivered.
He famously declared that he took a shower, rinsed his mouth with mouthwash and drove across town to do the deed. Thankfully, the situation didn't escalate to sexual coercion, but Andy is still revered nonetheless.
"I just don't want to necessarily be known as the Blow Job Kind of the world," he said. Well, nowadays he's doing amazingly well considering his reputation. One might even call him a breakout star?
King admitted in a recent Netflix video that he was "completely blown away" (LOL) by the public response to the interview. "I am now a noun, a verb, an adjective…it's mind-blogging."
The Billy Whisperer admitted to the L.A. Times he hasn't cut his ties with his imprisoned protégé; "No, I'm not done with him. I know- I'm Uncle Whackjob," he said.
"We come from a preppy background. Half my friends have sons his age. I didn't have somebody to mentor me at that age. He's not a horrible guy. He has hurt a lot of people. Will I probably go visit him someday? Yeah, I will probably. And maybe that's the closure I need."
Of course, anyone who watched the documentary had a huge amount of sympathy for her, and began a GoFundMe campaign to help her out.
It raised over $123,000 dollars and exceeded the goal, with many of the festival organisers offering donations.
Maryanne and her husband, Elvis Rolle, have found the attention highly difficult, and revealed in an interview that she has fallen ill due to the stress, "She can't cope with it all," Elvis told The National. "I hope she feels better soon."
I’m really, really mad at what they did to this lady – Maryanne Rolle, the owner of the Great Exuma restaurant who spent $50,000 of her own money to pay her staff. But a gofundme started for her met its goal! So that’s good. #FyreFestival#FyreNetflixpic.twitter.com/a2kDX3OpAJ
In case anyone wants to hear more about the sh*t-show that was Fyre Fest, we HIGHLY recommend the Netflix documentary.
The whole thing was insanity, but models and influencers who shared those infamous orange tiles to their Instagrams were paid a huge amount to do so, despite knowing nothing about the actual festival.
Rumour has it that Kendall Jenner was paid a whopping $250,000 for her post marketing the campaign, which is madness, but Hailey Baldwin has revealed that she gave her pay to charity.
The model and wife of Justin Bieber was a guest on James Corden's US talk show game Spill Your Guts, but remained candid on how much the actual amount was… which was probably wise.
While she did refuse to reveal the digits, she replied: "I’m not going to share but it made for a very generous donation to charity." Not one to let things go easily, Corden joked; "You gave the money away after you saw how… great it was."
Hailey had to laugh that one off, saying nervously, "Yes, I did." The chat show host made sure to call the 22-year-old supermodel 'noble' for her efforts. We're glad something good came out of the whole thing.
Posit: Fyre Fest's coordinated orange tile Instagram influencer campaign was a much more effective way to spend marketing $ than a Super Bowl ad. pic.twitter.com/egWM8v55rh
Baldwin and a group of models were flown out to the Bahamas, including Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner, in April 2017 to film a promotional video for the music festival.
The event was created by rapper Ja Rule and entrepreneur Billy McFarland using fraudulent funding on McFarland's part, who was arrested and sentenced to six years in prison.
He was let out on $300,000 bail but continued to create fraudulent businesses while on probation, awaiting trial.
Recent reports now state that Hailey and Bella Hadid, and influencers involved in the festival who are represented by IMG modelling agency would be subpoenaed as part of the criminal investigation into the disastrous event, which was later cancelled.
Billboard claim that the subpoenas aim to discover more about the reported $1.4 million budget that Fyre allegedly had to book artists and talent.
McFarland allegedly spent $10 million on the music festival, despite the chaos of no accommodation, water, food or artists.
The Fyre Festival has gone down as one of the greatest fails of the modern era; the celebrity endorsed festival was branded as the elite, luxurious partying experience. Think Coachella but on a tropical island.
The intention of the festival was to promote the Fyre music booking app, scheduled to go ahead on the Bahamian island of Great Exuma in April and May of 2017.
Social media influencers and socialites like Kendall Jenner, Hailey Baldwin, Emily Ratajkowski and Bella Hadid were all promoters of the festival, many of whom failed to mention that they were being paid to promote it.
As everyone figured out pretty damn quick, the event was a complete SHAMBLES.
Problems relating to food, security, and accommodation arose, and they also had no artists to play as they couldn't even travel to the island.
Instead of the luxury they branded and were promised, influencers paid thousands of dollars to be housed in FEMA tents, and eat prepackaged sandwiches. All hell broke loose, as you can imagine. Rich folks like to be treated as such…
The organisers are now the subject of at least eight lawsuits, such as defrauding ticket buyers and millions of dollars of damages. CEO of Fyre Media Inc, Billy McFarland, has been charged with wire fraud and in 2018 was sentenced to six years in prison.
Just watched #FyreFestival on Netflix last night and it was mind blowing. A must-watch. The power of social media and influencer marketing can turn anyone into a consumer of a dream. Also I want #BillyMcFarland to stay in jail after ruining so many lives in the Bahamas! pic.twitter.com/NkH6hILh76
Hulu and Netflix have each released documentaries on the failure, Fyre Fraud and Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened. The festival and it's employers had a hugely negative impact on people who live on the island itself.
A GoFundMe was set up for one amazing woman living on the island who helped to cater for the festival, but was never given any form of payment.
I have no compassion for the nimrods who paid hundreds of thousands to attend Fyre Festival, but can we please recognize this amazing woman who just wanted to help, do her job, and improve her country’s economy? #hero#maryannrollepic.twitter.com/D4sE5GshOK
The GoFundMe has now SURPASSED it's $123,000 goal, miraculously. Maryann Rolle, who owns the venue, gave $50,000 of her own money into the event to attempt to cover costs and pay the additional staff who were flown in to meet demands.
In the description, she wrote; "As I make this plea it’s hard to believe and embarrassing to admit that I was not paid…I was left in a big hole! My life was changed forever, and my credit was ruined by Fyre Fest."
Luckily, the account raised $128,000 in just one week, so Maryann can get her life back on track. Oh, the follies of rich people, typically tramping on those less fortunate than them. Fulfilling the stereotype never looked so trashy.
Now, some absolute GENIUS has created a mock Fyre Festival to take the absolute PISS out of influencers who paid thousands of cash for trash, and marketed it without mentioning their affiliation to their followers.
'Ex-influencers' looking for work wielding cardboard signs are also present, naturally. The influencers who were paid to endorse an absolute sham have deservedly been given a slagging.
They're already annoying as hell, but when you market something as elitist as a private island festival for thousands of dollars which almost ruins the lives of those who actually LIVE on the island, be prepared to face some serious consequences.
Yes Bella Hadid, we're looking at you over our cat-eye sunglasses.
The fake private jet also makes a guest reappearance. This was one of Mo's previous installations, and allows people to take those all important selfies and create a glamorous, false illusion for Instagram.
The things we do for the 'gram, honestly. It's slightly depressing. Mo spoke to Insider about the mock festival, saying;
“This is a satire and experience meant to drive offline to online engagement. We call this participatory art. I created the project to ride a cultural wave created by Netflix and Hulu. I hope to show that participatory art is the future of retail.”
Located in Los Angeles, the pop-up 'experience laboratory' is free to attend and celebrities have schedules appearances. We can't wait to see the pics from this, we stan a good slagging.
You’ve most likely seen at least one of Vogue’s infamous make-up tutorials, celebrated for their chill, relatable vibe… NOT.
We obsess over how gorgeous models get their looks, attempt to emulate their radiant beauty and try (and fail) to copy their stunning #lewks.
The rich and famous have world-renowned make-up artists following at their heels, making sure they look their best at all times.
We, on the other hand, roll out of bed and can only pray that we manage to look semi-decent instead of the apocalyptic zombie which was passed out in bed only moments earlier…
If I can remember to put toothpaste on my toothbrush instead of moisturiser, I think I’m winning.
These celebrity gals, however, are often expected to look #RedCarpetReady 24 hours a day, which sounds exhausting, to be honest.
We decided it was time to watch these notorious Vogue Vids to study the movements and cosmetic habits of faces such as Bad Gal Riri (she doesn’t need make-up, make-up needs her), Emily Ratajkowski, Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid to see just how relatable these ladies are.
We were inspired by the hilarious Maddison Bush, who uploaded parody version of a make-up tutorial while attempting to imitate Vogue's famous faces.
Hint: not relatable in the slightest. Not even close to it.
1. First up, Bella Hadid.
As we all know, Bella is one half of the supermodel sister duo of herself and Gigi Hadid, AKA: two of the most ridiculously stunning human beings on the planet. We actually doubt if they’re human… they look like they were made in a laboratory for beautiful people. No fair.
From the very start of these videos, it’s already hard to find anything in common with these women. They are all doing their beauty regime in unnaturally aesthetic bathrooms in luxurious hotels or mansions, whereas we’re struggling to find a mirror that isn’t covered in foundation smudge marks, or are possibly in the queue for the house bathroom for the last 35 minutes.
From the second models such as Bella face the camera, it’s difficult to choke down the fact that they aren’t wearing any make-up because they already look damn FLAWLESS.
Like, wig = snatched from the beginning. *sigh*
The videos are also alarmingly short, considering most of us take at least 15 minutes to put our faces on. The fact that famous faces only take 5 minutes to look that good is frankly both disturbing and insulting to my pale palour.
(I’ve been asked if I am anaemic countless times, I’ve just started saying yes now, it’s easier).
Bella begins by saying “models can do their own make-up too!” Good to know, Bella. Good to know. You’re very normal.
She continues by saying, “I look really tired because I’ve been travelling for two months straight.” You poor gal Bella, travelling the world in private jets and glamorous clothing must be devastating to your complexion.
So far, oh so relatable.
Bella uses concealer, a contour stick, highlighter, brow pencil, lash primer and mascara to complete her look in five minutes.
By the end of the video, she’s essentially ready for the Victoria’s Secret carpet, minus the wings. It’s offensive. *cries in poor*
Relatability level: 2/5.
2. Kendall Jenner. Also known as ‘KANDALL JANNARRR’.
She’s already using products we can’t even dream of affording without selling our organs illegally online, so the relatability factor is null from the beginning.
She claims that she “learns a lot from being on set.” Us too, Kendall. We frequent photoshoots on the reg constantly, it’s the cross we bear.
She lets us know that she eats grilled cheese sandwiches, which is comforting for roughly 4 seconds.
The Kardashian uses Estée Lauder foundation in nude, concealer, and mascara and finishes by blowing a kiss to the camera.
The fact that she hasn’t poked her eyes with a mascara brush or choked on powder yet separates this gal from reality.
My lungs still haven’t recovered from the powder incident of ’09, where my mother’s inhaler had to be used.
Relatability level: 1/5. Sorry Kendall, but your bathroom alone is next level boujee.
3. Lili Reinhart.
Our third gal is Riverdale’s gorgeous Betty Cooper herself, Lili Reinhart. We have high hopes for this one, seeing as her social media presence is all about positivity and female empowerment, as well as Cole Sprouse, AKA Coal Sprouts, Jughead Jones.
Lili also begins her video by eating food on camera, it seems to be a common ‘relatability’ tactic. This time, it’s Chinese food. She has us hooked.
She also admits from the beginning that she already has foundation on, thank God. If that was her natural complexion I think I’d have had to tell her to stay in her lane.
Lili doesn’t mention the products which she uses, which we translate to mean that we probably cannot afford them…
She uses pink eyeshadow, lip gloss, a basic nude foundation and of course, concealer and highlighter. Voila, she’s ready for her close-up.
Relatability level: 3/5. She’s the winner so far, mainly due to her Chinese wontons. They just look so tasty.
4. Emily Ratajkowski.
Ah, the notorious sexy selfie queen.We have serious doubts about the relatability level of this gal, she’s got cheekbones for days and an enviable glowing tan.
Plus she could look sexy even if she went to Coppers until 6am the night before and had an absolute ‘mare when those jägerbombs came back to haunt her. The hardest look to pull off, arguably.
She comments that “I do my own make-up for red carpets a lot”. Same, tbh…
All this girl needs is Pat McGrath lipgloss, her blush which she confesses to be addicted to, and a bit of concealer. Wait… that’s it? That’s all it takes? Seriously?
We quit. We are the weakest link, goodbye.
Relatability level: 0/5. Sorry Emily, but you took a duck-face selfie when you were done, and DIDN’T delete it or take a second take. That’s downright blasphemy in our books, we need at least 13 photos before we can find one we don’t hate.
Last, but not least, BAD GAL RIRI. An icon. A sass queen. Fenty Beauty extraordinaire, we have high hopes for this one.
From the beginning of the ten minute long gift, RiRi shows off her bubbly personality without plugging her own products at all, which is a miracle in itself.
If you haven’t tried using Fenty Beauty products, girl you are MISSING OUT. They’re flawless.
“The key to highlighter is not to be afraid, make-up is fun. It’s there to play with.” She hits the nail on the head, so many of us can find make-up intensely frustrating when we are expected to follow certain trends and look a certain way.
At the end of the day, beauty products should be used for our own enjoyment and empowerment, and if make-up doesn’t empower you, your natural beauty is all you need.
Riri claims that she learned how to contour when she gained weight and wanted to hide her ‘double chin’ and forehead, which was hugely surprising to us. Superstar celebrities have insecurities too, gals.
“The best teacher is yourself.” Say it louder for the people in the back, Rihanna. Everyone has their own unique look, individual face and preferred beauty regimens. You don’t have to look to famous people to understand your own complexion, all you need is you.
Riri relatability level: 4/5. Her personality is down-to-earth, her tips are one of a kind and her products are gold star standard.
We have to remind ourselves that these celebrities have picked up countless tips from the top make-up artists in the business, whereas we got free eyeshadows from magazines as 11-year-olds back when YouTube make-up tutorials didn’t exist (yes, there was a time, believe it or not) and gave ourselves pinkeye.
I lost count of how many allergic reactions I had to dodgy make-up after my 3827th eye infection from cheap “make-up”.
I wouldn’t even call it make-up honestly, I suspect that magazine eyeshadows were essentially homemade concoctions of flour and food dye.
Fast forward a few years, and YouTube beauty accounts have blown up across the internet, courtesy of teenagers who are DYING to know how to contour.
The word contour genuinely did not exist until recently in Ireland, we were simple folk back then.
Rap R&B sensationthe Weekndis apparently being sued for trademark infringement over his alter ego 'Starboy' by a comic book writer who claims to have created the character back in 2014.
TMZ and The Blast are reporting that writer Eymun Talasazan came up with the concept for a series of comic books focusing on superhero rap and R&B artists, and that he was in touch with representatives of the Weeknd regarding a possible collaboration.
This alleged collaboration never actually took place, after nothing came of the 2017 talks, but the Starboy character was then used for the Weeknd's infamous album last year.
Bella Hadid has posted to Instagram to share her excitement to walk in the upcoming Victorias Secret Fashion Show.
Taking to Instagram the model uploaded a series of snaps of herself posing in a black underwear set, but was quickly attacked by body shamers for her thin frame.
'@victoriassecret fittings today. I can’t wait for you to see all of the beautiful outfits …i’m so grateful to be a part of the show again, feeling happier and healthier than ever,' she wrote in the caption..
The model later amended her caption to address the comments being made about her body.
'All body types are different and react differently to a great workout routine and a healthy diet,' she added.
Bella's weight has been a topic of conversation since 2016. The star was perviously accused of "glamorising anorexia" on social media, particularly in one a black and white photo from Decemeber 2016, in which her thigh gap and prominent ribs are clearly visible.
Initially, the mogul wasn't completely impressed with the results, but after adding more bronzer and re-setting her brows, the effect was pretty flawless.
'It kind of seems like, because of the cold water, we're literally sealing the makeup into your skin, so I feel like the pores have closed, the makeup is inside my skin, it's become part of my skin, and that's also why it looks so smooth, I've never seen my skin so airbrushed,' she said, in a YouTube video demonstrating the hack.
Huda also advises that the face dunking is a better method for those with oily skin than dry.
She also admits that while it may give that flawless, Insta-worthy finish, it probably isn't so good for the health of your skin.
'I don't know if this is good for your skin, because if you think about it, you're kind of closing the makeup into your pores, so I think the removal has to be better, you cannot sleep with the makeup on your skin in general but this is going to be even worse.'
'You really want to make sure that you're removing it properly with a little bit of hot water, getting deep into your pores maybe using a little bit of a clay based moisturiser which really pulls (out) any product.'
Maybe we'll save this Korean beauty hack for special occasions , then.
Bella Hadid and the Weekend dated for a full year between 2015 and 2016, before The Weekend embarked on his well-publicised romance with Selena Gomez.
It seems that both Selena and The Weeknd have a serious case of the ex, as she has been seen with ex Justin Bieber multiple times, and now The Weekend, real name Abel Tesfaye, has been spotted in his ex's neighbourhood.
The platinum-selling musician was spotted leaving Bella Hadid's apartment in New York City last night.
When we think of the celeb life, we think luxurious yacht trips, glamorous red carpet events and shopping at designer stores.
However, we often forget about the realities of being a public figure, as well-known mega stars battle to get from A to B due to the sheer mass of photographers and fans which surround them at every opportunity.
Unsurprisingly, Bella Hadid is one such celeb who is swarmed with paparazzi whenever she steps out in public.
Gigi and Bella Hadid's dad, Mohamed Hadid, has been sentenced to community service after he built a mansion that was too big.
Mohamed must also pay fines and create a plan to stop eroding the hillside in Bel-Air, after he was told that he could not build a "mammoth mansion" there.
Three years ago, the city of Los Angeles demanded that construction stopped, however, the real estate developer continued building the 30,000-square-foot home on a 1.2 acre plot.
Los Angeles Times reports that "construction continued illegally on the massive house, defying the city order."
The mansion was allegedly "bigger and taller than city rules allowed," and had "bedrooms, decks, and a [70-seat] IMAX theatre that the city said were never approved, according to court documents filed by prosecutors."
Mohamed appeared in court in Los Angeles yesterday and the judge sentenced him to three years probation and 200 hours of community service.
He was also ordered to pay more than $3,000 in fines and repay the city $14,000 to cover building department costs.
In addition, Mr Hadid must also create a plan to stabilise the hillside on which the house sits, because neighbours say it has "been dangerously destabilized."
One of Mohamed's neighbours said that he "should be in jail [because] he violated the city’s ordinances over and over again."
Despite protest however, the aptly named 'Starship Enterprise' will remain in place.
