Things Are Getting Serious Between Canelo Alvarez and Shannon de Lima (Marc Anthony’s Ex)

Does Marc Anthony know how to pack a punch? We’re just asking for a friend. Sort of. We only bring this up because it’s come to our attention (thanks Instagram) that Mexican boxing champ Saúl ‘Canelo’ Alvarez and Shannon de Lima (Marc Anthony’s ex), are dating. And not just dating — it looks like things may be serious.

Canelo Alvarez posted this sweet pic of his new GF.

Que es esto tan bello ??? ??

In case you need a refresher, the 29-year-old Venezuelan model and Marc Anthony were married for two years. They announced their split in late 2016, just weeks after the Anthony and J.Lo performed at the Latin Grammys together and ended their duet with a kiss. It was pretty insane.

De Lima made it Instagram official, too!

Mi amor bello ❤️?

A post shared by SHANNON DE LIMA (@shadelima) on

She’s clearly smitten.

De Lima even has Canelo singing his heart out:

A friend of Canelo also posted a picture of the cozy couple.

Pa y Ma ❤️

But just because it looks serious to us, doesn’t mean it’s gonna last. Just ask Canelo’s ex-girlfriend.

Kate del Castillo, who was rumored to be dating Canelo in 2015, gave the impression that Canelo isn’t ready to settle down.

According to Univision, when asked what she thought of Canelo’s new girlfriend, Castillo said: “[E]se muchacho cambia de novias como de guantes.” 

In other words, Canelo goes through girlfriends like he changes boxing gloves. Ouch!

Canelo’s next boxing match will take place on September 16 against Kazakhstan native Gennady “GGG” Golovkin. The fight is happening in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Mexican Independence Day.

During a recent interview, Canelo appeared to be annoyed at a reporter for bringing up Marc Anthony:

During the interview, a reporter asked both Canelo and Oscar De La Hoya who should sing the national anthem at the highly-anticipated boxing match. De La Hoya, who was probably thinking about both the U.S. and Mexican anthems, mentioned Luis Miguel, Ricky Martin and Marc Anthony as possible performers. When a reporter asked Canelo how he would feel about Marc Anthony singing an anthem — it’s not clear whether he asked about the Mexican anthem — Canelo told the reporter, “Don’t be dumb.”

Vanessa Bryant Said It Was ‘Love At First Sight’ When She First Met Kobe

Vanessa Bryant Said It Was ‘Love At First Sight’ When She First Met Kobe

Vanessa Bryant says love at first sight is very real.

The wife of the late NBA great recently revealed that it happened to her the very first time she met Kobe Bryant 21 years ago.

Over the weekend, Bryant shared a photo of her and the former LA Laker while visiting Disneyland.

Last Friday, Bryant celebrated the 21st anniversary of the day she and Kobe met. She captioned the Instagram post writing “Love at first sight 11/27/99 #21.”

Vanessa and Kobe met in 1999 during a music video shoot while she was still in high school and he was 20 years old. The couple became engaged when she turned 18, announced their engagement at her 18th birthday party, and the Bryants married in April 2001.

In 2013, Kobe shared a picture of the day they met on Instagram.

“On this day 20 years ago I met my best friend, my Queen @vanessabryant I decided to take her on a date to Disneyland tonight to celebrate old school style (pre 4princesses) I love you my mamacita per sempre,” Kobe wrote in the Instagram post at the time.

After their 2001 message, Kobe and Vanessa had four daughters together, Natalia, 17, Gianna, 13, Bianka, 3, and Capri, 1. Tragically, in January, Bryant and Gianna passed away in a helicopter crash alongside seven others.

Last year, Kobe also reflected on the day he met his “best friend,” posting a throwback pic along with the Disneyland snap.

“On this day 20 years ago I met my best friend, my Queen @vanessabryant,” he captioned his post at the time. “I decided to take her on a date to Disneyland tonight to celebrate old school style (pre 4princesses) I love you my mamacita per sempre.”

It’s not the first time Vanessa honored her husband since his death. In October, the former model and philanthropist honored her husband and daughter with tattoos.

Speaking about her loss, Vanessa’s friend La La Anthony told Entertainment Today that she’s done her best to stay strong.

“Well, you know, I’m a real friend, that’s what friends do,” Anthony told ET in September. “You know, you don’t dip out on your friends when it gets really hard. And she’s going through something that is unimaginable, that, you know, I can’t even fathom what that feels like. So, just to be a friend and be there to make her laugh when she needs to, cry when she needs to, is a beautiful thing. But that’s what friends do for each other, you know, so I’m always going to be there for her and the girls and just, you know, want to see her just continue to be strong and amazing.”

The Lincoln Project And Marc Anthony Release Ad Against Trump

Things That Matter

The Lincoln Project And Marc Anthony Release Ad Against Trump

President Trump’s record on Puerto Rico has been awful. It took years for him to approve relief funds for the island and they came during a campaign season. Marc Anthony teamed up with The Lincoln Project to call out President Trump’s response to Puerto Rico after a series of natural disasters.

Marc Anthony is calling for Puerto Ricans on the mainland to “vote him out.”

The Puerto Rican singer voiced an ad by The Lincoln Project against President Trump and his response to Hurricane Maria. In 2017, the hurricane devastated the island. Millions of Americans were without power and running water for months and thousands died. President Trump spent the time after Hurricane Maria arguing with experts over the death toll.

Anthony is proud to have been part of the campaign to get Trump out of office.

The ad shows the island struggling to recover after Maria. All throughout, the ad highlights President Trump’s failed response to the crisis. Instead of supplying aid for Puerto Rico, President Trump fought to move the funds to states impacted by other hurricanes. Meanwhile, President Trump complained publicly about needing to help Puerto Rico, even saying it threw off the budget during a press conference.

Voters are not letting his actions in Puerto Rico go unchallenged.

President Trump pushed back against relief funds for Puerto Rico for years. It wasn’t until he was running for reelection that President Trump suddenly announced relief funds. The money appeared at the same time that the Trump campaign realized that Puerto Ricans have become a formidable voting bloc in Florida, a key swing state for President Trump. Without Florida, President Trump’s likelihood of a second term shrink considerably.

Everyone remembers the infamous video of President Trump throwing paper towels.

The moment stunned people around the world. The president went to Puerto Rico after avoiding to do so for months. When he arrived, President Trump was caught on camera throwing paper towels into a crowd of Puerto Ricans. The people of Puerto Rico were desperate for aid and necessary relief to reopen schools, restore power and running water, offer food and medicine, and generally help the island. Instead, leaders on the island watched as the President of the United States threw paper towels to people in a crowd.

Some people want an ad made to target the Cuban community.

The Cuban community is notoriously conservative and many are excited for a second Trump term. The Lincoln Project has worked tirelessly to convince Republicans to vote against President Trump in the upcoming election. The Lincoln Project is a Republican organization that has focused ads on turning out voters against President Trump. Their focus has been Republican voters using Republican fear-mongering ad tactics.
