La Monalisa / YouTube

Pedro Ruiz III, 22, and his girlfriend Monalisa Perez, 19, had a YouTube channel that they were putting a lot of effort into. The channel, filled with prank videos and challenge videos, shows what appears to be a normal, happy, young couple vying for Internet fame. However, on June 26, there was a tragic accident while filming another prank video for their channel, according to Twin Cities Pioneer Press. The Halstad, Minn. couple was filming a prank where Perez, who is pregnant with their second child, shot a gun at Ruiz III, who was holding a book. The book was supposed to stop the bullet from hitting Ruiz III, however, that was not how it went down. The bullet went through the book, killing Ruiz III.

Perez tweeted before the incident that Ruiz III was the one who convinced her to perform the stunt.

According to the Twin Cities Pioneer Press, Perez said that Ruiz III produced a book that he had used to test the prank and showed her that the bullet was stopped by the book.

Twin Cities Pioneer Press reports that Perez told police officer who responded to the 911 call that Ruiz III came up with the prank to try to get more followers on their YouTube channel. Their 3-year-old daughter was a witness to the accident. First responders attempted life-saving procedures when they arrived at the scene but it was too late for Ruiz III, who died from a gunshot wound to the chest.

Perez has been arrested and is being charged with second-degree manslaughter. The New York Times reports that Perez faces up to 10 years in prison, a $20,000 fine, or both for the death of Ruiz III. She is currently out on bail.

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

Instagram/@canelo

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.

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!

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.

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.”
