The organisers of Glastonbury Festival took to Twitter this week to confirm the cancellation of the 2021 event. Organisers Michael and Emily Eavis tweeted: “With great regret, we must announce that this year’s Glastonbury Festival will not take place, and that this will be another enforced fallow year for us. Tickets will roll over to next year.”
The official statement said that organisers had tried “to move Heaven & Earth” to make it happen and are “very confident we can deliver something really special for us all in 2022”.
Adele has reached a divorce settlement to split her £140m fortune with her ex
After splitting with Simon Konecki almost two years ago, Adele and her ex have finally reached a divorce settlement. They have represented themselves with the help of mediators during the proceedings. It has been reported that they are seeking joint custody of their son Angelo.
The pair have signed a confidentiality agreement, and the outcome of the settlement will remain private, an LA court ruled. It was revealed that they were no longer living together in 2014, but the couple didn’t officially split until April 2019.
Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik reveal their baby daughter’s name
Supermodel Gigi Hadid has revealed the name of her and Zayn Malik’s baby daughter is Khai. Rather than making a big announcement, Hadid quietly added “Khai’s mom” to her Instagram bio. The name is reportedly a tribute to her grandmother Khairiah.
Khai was born in September 2020, and the couple has been tentative about sharing photos and information about her. Zayn said in his birth announcement: "Our baby girl is here, healthy and beautiful. To try put into words how I am feeling right now would be an impossible task. The love I feel for this tiny human is beyond my understanding."
Phil Collins sells his £29m mansion days before his legal deadline
Phil Collins has finally got a “contingent” sale on his Miami mansion, just days before his ex-wife’s legal deadline. Collins and ex-wife Orianne Cevey have been in spectacularly messy legal proceedings since their divorce in 2008. The Miami house, which Collins bought in 2015 and the pair were living in together, has been a point of contention.
The original divorce was the largest pay-out in UK celebrity history at £25m. Cevey told Collins in August 2020 that she was going on a business trip to Las Vegas, only to later admit via text she had gone to secretly marry businessman Thomas Bates. Cevey and Bates then refused to move out of the Miami mansion, and Phil sought to have them forcibly removed. She is still seeking a portion of the money from the sale.
