In a day which is just SATURATED with Kardashian gossip (cheers, Tristan, you're a melt)…let's not forget that Kourtney Kardashian had an awkward encounter with ex-boyfriend Younes Bendjima.

The pair split six months ago after dating for two years, following pictures surfacing showing the young model getting cosy with another girl on holidays. 

E! News reports that the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, who called it quits with her former beau last August, was seen standing alongside her ex at Alfred Tea Room in Los Angeles.

Her fans may have gotten excited imaging a romantic reunion between the pair,  E! News are saying that this was a chance encounter rather than a planned meeting.

"Kourtney bumped into Younes getting coffee at Alfred. It wasn't a planned meet up," an insider source told the publication. "She goes there often and so does he. She was happy to see him and very nice. It wasn't awkward for her and they chatted for a few minutes."

Younes bought Kourtney a latte, which seems nice until you remember he got cosy with another woman…

"It was sweet and she appreciated it. She gave him a hug and went on her way," the source claiemd. "He texts her from time to time but she has moved on. It was nice to see him and she was glad to see he's doing well."

The former couple ended their romance when Kourtney learned of him getting cosy in Mexico with another girl, but last December, Younes posted a tribute to his famous ex on Instagram.

"Let's not forget this beautiful woman inside and out," Younes wrote alongside pictures of Kourtney. "I'm not the type of man that forgets moments like that. You are an amazing woman and mum and I hope you will find happiness for you and your children."

"It's all love at the end of the day…we don't know what can happen tomorrow so there you go," he finished.

Apparently, the same source said; "Kourtney heard he had posted, but she has moved on from that time in her life. She doesn't trust Younes and his intentions. It felt like he was looking for attention and to be relevant again."

"She didn't think much of it. She's focused on other people and other things." Kourtney hasn't been in contact with Younes since the photos, and has gotten on with her life without him.

"She knows he is still hurting and misses her, but she isn't focused on him." Damn right girl, you don't need no man.

Plans have been set in motion to begin work on Donald Trump's most infamous campaign promise.

The Trump administration is seeking almost 18 billion dollars from Congress to complete a border wall between the US and Mexico.

The funds would be distributed over a period of 10 years.

Plans have been made for 316 miles of new barriers and to upgrade an reinforce 407 miles of already existing barriers, according to The Guardian. 

Donald Trump told supporters at a ally during his campaign period that he would be using the border to keep out Mexican illegal immigrants. 

'They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists,' the US President said at the time. 

He also said the Mexican government would be paying for the wall. 

'I will build a great, great wall on our southern border, and I will have Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words,' he said previously.

Mexico has continually refused to pay for Trump's wall. 


The folk behind Cards Against Humanity are so much more than a foul-mouthed, albeit hilarious, party game creators. 

Never one to shy away form its political views, the company often uses publicity stunts to highlight a range of societal issues including consumer culture and pink-tax – but this latest effort might just be our favourite yet.

According to the official website, CAH have purchased a plot of vacant land right on the US-Mexico border, in an attempt to spoil Donald Trump's party and prevent him from completing the controversial wall designed to separate the two countries.

“We’ve purchased a plot of vacant land on the border and retained a law firm specialising in eminent domain to make it as time-consuming and expensive as possible for the wall to get built,” the statement reads.

For the project (which is now sold-out), customers were asked to donate $15 in return for “six America-saving surprises,” including a map of the land, a certificate of the company's promise to fight the wall and some new cards.

As expected, the anti-Trump Twitter population has thrown its full support behind the cause. 



At least 226 people have died after a strong earthquake struck central Mexico yesterday evening.

The death toll was confirmed by the country's civil defence agency, though it is feared that number may rise as rescue crews and volunteers search through rubble in hope of finding survivors who may still be trapped.

The 7.1 magnitude quake caused widespread devastation in the capital and neighbouring states.

Disaster struck just hours after a number of emergency drills were conducted exactly 32 years after a similar quake killed thousands in Mexico city.

More than 20 children and two adults were found dead at a school in Coapa and President Enrique Peña Nieto said a further 30 children and 12 adults are missing.

Approximately 2 million people in the Mexico City were left without electricity or phone lines and residents were warned not to smoke on the street as gas mains could have been broken.

In a televised address, the president said an emergency had been declared.

"We may still find people under the rubble. Stay in touch, follow lines of communication, we will keep people updated," he said.

According to US Geological Survey, the tremor struck close to the town of Atencingo in the central state of Puebla, 76 miles southeast of Mexico City.

The devastating quake comes just weeks after an 8.1 magnitude tremor killed at least 90 people in southern Mexico.

A location scout for the hit Netflix series, Nacros, has been found dead after he was shot multiple times while searching for filming locations in central Mexico.

Carlos Muñoz Portal was discovered in his car on Monday in the rural town of Temascalapa, an area believed to have one of the highest murder rates in the entire country.

The motive for the shooting is not yet know, though according to reports, police have said his car appeared to have been involved in some sort of chase.

A lack of witnesses mean Mexican authorities are struggling to piece together what little information they have.

The 37-year-old was an experienced location manager and had worked on a number of productions in Mexico including Man on Fire, Apocalypto and the latest Bond film, Spectre.

Netflix issued a brief statement, saying, "We are aware of the passing of Carlos Muñoz Portal, a well-respected scout, and send our condolences to his family. The facts surrounding his death are still unknown as authorities continue to investigate."

Nacros season four sees the location move form Colombia to Mexico, though it is not yet know if the producers will continue to seek out Mexico locations.



New reports have said that the death toll of the earthquake, felt in Mexico City and neighbouring cities, is much higher than originally thought. 

Up to 20 people have lost their lives to the quake, described as the strongest in Mexico in the last century. 

The worst impacted area is the Oaxaca state, according to CNN

The 8.1-magnitude earthquake occurred off the coast of southern Mexico.

The quake was so strong that it caused buildings to sway as panicked residents fled. 

Social media videos show buildings and statues swaying in the high magnitude.

The earthquake also triggered a tsunami warning for the region. 



Mexico was hit by an earthquake last night which has claimed the lives of two people.

The 8.1-magnitude earthquake occurred off the coast of southern Mexico.

The quake was so strong that it reportedly caused buildings to sway as panicked residents fled. 

The earthquake has caused a tsunami warning to be placed in effect. 

'Off the west coast of Mexico is what's called the subduction zone, the Pacific Plate is moving under the Mexican peninsula,' Lucy Jones, a seismologist in California who works with the US Geological Survey told Breaking News.

'It's a very flat fault, so it's a place that has big earthquakes relatively often because of that.'

'There's likely to be a small tsunami going to the south-west.'



Donald Trump is still pushing to complete one of his most infamous campaign claims. 

The POTUS insisted during a press conference last night, that he will be building a wall between Mexico and the US, and that Mexico will pay for it.

'We need the wall. It's imperative,' said Trump.

'We may fund it through the United States but ultimately Mexico will pay for the wall.'

As a presidential candidate on the campaign, Donald Trump stated that he would be responsible for creating a physical barrier between Mexico and the US.

The border barricade would prevent drug trafficking and illegal immigration, according to the POTUS, and would be financed by Mexico, he claimed at the time.

At the press conference, he did not give specific details on how he would force Mexico to pay for the structure.

The Mexican government has said on numerous occasions that they will not be financing or participating in the project. 



The Department of Foreign Affairs is providing consular assistance following the death of a 27-year-old Irish man in Mexico.

It is understood that the individual, who is believed to be from Co Louth, was shot several times at a service station in the Michocán region of the country yesterday.

According to reports, the man was in the company of a female companion when they stopped to ask for directions to a nearby beach.

Having paused at the service station on the La Mira – Lázaro Cárdenas road, they were confronted by two armed individuals who demanded they hand over the vehicle.

When they refused, the assailants shot both individuals and the took the car, and fled.

It is understood that the Irishman died at the scene.


Another day; another set of snaps of a certain teenage reality TV personality and social media star.

This time, she’s on a beach in Mexico looking perfectly happy with her boyfriend of a couple years, rapper Tyga.

Kylie Jenner: whether we like it or not – and plenty of people don’t – the world knows her name.

Don’t forget, she’s still just 19: an age when most of were grappling with our first real forays into makeup, romance, college courses, and part-time jobs.

But far from battling spots and teenage insecurity, Kylie is every-imaginable-angle picture-perfect. Considering her stream of flawless photos and videos garner millions of reactions on Snapchat and Instagram, it is little wonder that she has to be.

And yet there is a particularly loathsome, venomous response whenever Ms Jenner crops up on celebrity-heavy websites.

“Frankenstein's monster, a fear-inducing but empty shell built by mad scientists for money,” sneered one observer this week upon reading the detail of Kylie and Tyga’s romantic beach getaway.

“Long live the new self absorbed plastic, sex object Queen,” wrote another – referring to the self-imposed social media demise of Kylie’s elder half-sister, Kim Kardashian.

A third comment read as such: “She's so nasty, pretty sure I got herpes just looking at these.”

The comments went on: “I just threw up in my mouth a little. Please make it stop.” And on: “So sick of seeing this deformed teenager half naked.” AND ON: “Per usual, she's disgusting…”

Tyga – a 27-year-old with a four-year-old son from a previous relationship with Blac Chyna – hardly came out unscathed himself.

Many noted his ‘scrawny’ appearance and bemoaned his fondness for the tattoos which generously cover his skin.

Still, there is no doubt that Ms Jenner – a member of the pop culture Kardashian-Jenner mega-dynasty – receives the brunt of the hatred.

Let's remember that this is a young woman who from the age of ten was put in front of millions via Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

A young woman who says she felt compelled to alter her lips when a boy in school commented on how ‘thin’ her natural ones were.

A young woman who has, in fact, admitted to being brutally bullied for years.

“Since the show started, there’s been so much bullying towards me,” Kylie told INTERVIEW magazine a year ago. “Every single day I see something negative about me.

“It’s just completely torn me apart.”

During a similar 2016 interview with Wonderland, Ms Jenner furthermore admitted: “Growing up, I’ve heard the worst things anyone could ever say about me and bullying was such a big part of my life, with the whole entire world judging me.”

And yet that bullying continues still.

People, it seems, don’t like that Kylie Jenner has had surgery; it appears that (although this is not confirmed) she has enhanced her breasts and her bum.

“Too young; too vain; too grotesque,” cries the online mob, with no acknowledgement that Ms Jenner – before all those changes in appearance – was happily referred to as KUWTK's ‘ugly sister’.   

Look, there’s no attempt to pontificate from any high horse here: we all know how the keyboard can lead otherwise fairly reasonable folk to say and do things they never would in ‘real-life’.

But the criticism en masse of Kylie Jenner is vile. 

It has evolved into a shamefully sustained, full-blown, and personal attack – and one that few of Kylie's fellow celebrities endure. 

So let’s instead give this incredible teen a hearty pat on the back: in the spotlight for half of her childhood, she has emerged out on the other side. Not on drugs or half-sloshed and ranting at the maid by noon – but building her multi-million dollar brand.

And that’s cause enough to celebrate. 



She has countless audiences eating out of the palm of her hand on a regular basis, so you'd be forgiven for thinking very little fazes Adele.

But, you'd be wrong.

While performing in Mexico this week, the Londoner revealed a fear (albeit a very rational one) of the vampire's best friend – the bat.

After spotting one enter the arena, she completely lost it and thankfully the moment was captured and subsequently circulated online for people who enjoy watching others in distress.

"There's a bat!" she shrieked from the stage while flapping her arms wildly in what we believe was an impersonation of the offending creature. "There's a bat there and it landed by your head!"

"It landed right by your head! Oh my God, it's a f**king bat. Welcome to Mexico," she continued. "It's true, I'm happy to be here, but a f**king bat, Jesus Christ!"

Take it away, Adele.




WARNING: Some users may find the detail in this report upsetting 

In a case which caused wide-spread horror and disgust internationally, a man has now been jailed for 100 years for drowning his stepdaughter in a swimming pool.

Harrowing CCTV footage show the killer, identified in court documents only as Jose David N, repeatedly throwing the three-year-old girl – who could not swim – into a hotel swimming pool.

She can be seen struggling in the water, but her stepfather made no attempt to assist her. 

The incident happened in the city of Morelia, in the south-western Mexican state of Michoacan, on August 12, 2015. At the time the child's mother was sleeping in a hotel room.

Jose David N had initially claimed the girl died in a tragic accident, but the CCTV footage proved damning.  

Now, he has been jailed for 100 years with no possibility of parole.
