The pregnant mother of Nick Cannon’s eighth child, Bre Tiesi, raised eyebrows Wednesday after she posted a few photos on Instagram looking pretty coupled up alongside the “Wild N’ Out creator.

Wearing a bright orange bikini top and a matching sarong, Tiesi, 29, walked along the beach with Cannon hand in hand. Her precious baby bump was on full display too, decked out in a gold belly chain.

“BabyMoonin 🌙💙👶🏽 I still just can’t believe it… babyc mommy and daddy love u so much already,” the bustling real estate agent captioned the photo.

Cannon and Tiesi spark romance rumors

Another picture in the series captured the 41-year-old daytime talk show host cradling Tiesi’s belly, but fans in the comment section couldn’t help but notice the third slide which pictured the star planting a kiss on the mother-to-be’s lips.

“Such a beautiful couple,” wrote one user on Instagram.

While another person commented:

“So happy for you two!!”

Tiesi nor Cannon have confirmed if they are in fact dating, but this isn’t the first time that they have sparked romance rumors. In April, the couple did a sexy maternity photoshoot which showed them getting super close and frisky with each other.  

Back in March, Tiesi sat down with E! News’ Daily Pop where she revealed that she and the “Masked Singer” host had “a long history” with one another for “almost a decade.”

“I think some people have their idea of conventional relationships and certain things, but we have a beautiful relationship. Everything is so supportive and positive,” the savvy investor told viewers.

“I think for me, my family, my relationship, that’s my business and I support everything and everyone involved and I’m just really excited to have my son,” she added.

 

Nick Cannon says he isn’t “built” for marriage

As for Cannon, it doesn’t look like he’ll be considering monogamy anytime soon. During a recent interview on the  It’s Tricky With Raquel Harper podcast, the star said he doesn’t think he’s cut out for marriage.

“Getting the government involved in my relationship, like that whole paperwork stuff? Nah. But if it’s something on a spiritual or holistic ritual I’m all for it,” the Nickelodeon alum expressed.

The actor continued:

“We can go have a ceremony somewhere…why would government be involved in your love life? Like that just seems so bizarre to me…’cause if you go to the core of what it was all about it’s really a business and to bring business and love together, I’ve experienced it, that’s a tough one to get involved with.”

Although his eight-year-long marriage with Mariah Carey was one of the  “greatest experiences” of his life, Cannon admitted that after their union ended, he didn’t want to jump back into the married life.

“You know what it is, once I gave my all to a scenario going forward I’d have to be presented with something I’ve never seen before and never experienced in order for me to be willing to go back to do something like that,” he said, before adding:

“Marriage and all that goes into that, it’s a lot. Like anybody who’s married knows what that is—you’re literally entering a partnership that says when two become one, and I know I’m not built for that.”

Earlier this week, the Power 106 radio host claimed that he scheduled a consultation for a vasectomy but we’ll see if he actually follows through with it.

 

Cannon buys his baby momma Abby De La Rosa a new car

In the meantime, it looks like the “N’Credible” headphone founder is keeping another mother of his children happy.

DJ Abby De La Rosa, who shares twins with Cannon, gushed about receiving a brand new Range Rover from the entertainer on Instagram.

“Got the sweetest delivery yesterday!” she wrote. “Y’all already know a hater keyed my range – this time around bd wanted them to hate harder!! Thank you Nick for the insane upgrade,” she added.

Six years is a long time to date without putting a ring on it. Wouldn’t you agree?

Commit or Quit with Judge Lynn Toler

It’s Wednesday and we’re just a day away from a brand new episode of ‘Commit Or Quit with Judge Lynn Toler.’ We’ve got a sneak preview clip for your viewing pleasure. In the clip we’re introduced to Antoine, 36, and Kieyesia, 41, who have been dating for six years with no ring in sight.

Antoine and Kieyesia met on social media when Antoine slid into her DMs 6 years ago and the two have been together ever since. Unfortunately, the relationship has been anything but smooth. Antoine’s ex-fiancé, and mother of his child, continues to butt into their relationship. On top of all of the baby mama drama, Antoine’s social media persona is a source of contention for Kieyesia and she doesn’t like that she is completely absent from his world. He thinks she isn’t on his level and after 6 years of dating, both are starting to wonder if their relationship has a future. Unable to pull the trigger themselves, they need Judge Toler to come in and decide as neither is willing to go another 6 years stuck in the same place.  

Crazy how they met on social media but he’s not including her in his social media right? Well things take a quick turn when Judge Toler shows up and tells the couple she’ll marry them immediately if she deems them ready to commit.

Check out the clip below:

Whew, Antoine with the strong, ‘No.’ That can’t be a good sign for the future of this couple!

Here’s what else to expect from the episode:

After experiencing devastating losses, Ayanna and Brian seek Judge Toler’s help to determine if their past baggage is too heavy to carry into the future. When shocking secrets & fertility struggles rock their marriage, Judge Toler decides their fate.

The new episode of ‘Commit Or Quit With Judge Lynn Toler’ “Marriage Is Prison?” premieres Thursday, May 26 at 10PM ET on WeTV.

A lot of you might have seen the viral video that shows ex-NFL player Brendan Langley beating the frequent flyer points out of a United Airlines employee who keeps coming back for more despite clearly being unable to get the upper hand (or any hands at all, really) in this fight.

Now, first off, it’s unclear how this one-sided airport brawl even started. It’s also unclear who got physical first. A lot of people have seen the version of the video that begins with the airline employee slapping Langley and Langley appearing to plead with airline staff to take notice of it before he has to defend himself.

Then there’s a longer video that shows what happened before the slap, and that video makes it a little more ambiguous about what actually happened and who really hit who first.

 

According to TMZ, Langley was arrested and charged with simple assault and the airline employee was fired. This, of course, has a lot of people wondering why only one person who engaged in the fight was arrested. I mean, regardless of who started the physical altercation, the employee is absolutely seen slapping Langley after it had paused.

Then there’s another question; who the hell asked Alec Baldwin what he thought about this?

Alec Baldwin Weighs In On The Brendan Langley Video

TheShadeRoom reported that Baldwin shared his thoughts on the fight and, without knowing any prior context, decided that the whole thing was 100 percent Langley’s fault.

“The guy working at the airport is the victim,” Baldwin said. “He came to work to do a job. The other guy, with his big mouth, is guilty of workplace abuse, where people come to work with an expectation of safety, even civility. This a**hole who hit this guy should be put on a no-fly list.”

First of all, if there were ever a person who should be keeping literally everything in the drafts for the foreseeable, it’s Alec Baldwin. I’m not saying he intentionally shot and killed Halyna Hutchins on the set of one of his films, I’m just saying someone died from a prop gun he was holding, it became a big story and controversy and when that happens, ya’ might want to lay low for a spell.

But the issue goes beyond Baldwin throwing stones (or prop bullets) in glass houses. The real question is, how TF would Bladwin know who was more at fault here? How does he know that the employee is the “victim” and the Black guy’s “big mouth” is what prompted the altercation? (If you didn’t hear the dog-whistling in the “big mouth” comment, I don’t know what to tell you.)

Even if it was “workplace abuse”—which Bladwin has no basis for saying definitively that it was—the employee clearly kept coming back for more despite the fact that this was the most “Debo vs. Red,” “Vera vs. Quick,” “Tyler Durden vs. his damn self” fight ever likely to be seen in an airport. 

Baldwin is loud and wrong, and even if he wasn’t, he would still be better off keeping his trap shut.

The caucasity, I tell ya.

Fans of ‘Rescue Rangers’ are in for a treat!

Kiki Layne spoke with BOSSIP about her new project ‘Chip ‘N Dale: Rescue Rangers’ ahead of the Friday, May 20th Disney + release of the film.  The film stars Layne as Ellie, a police officer investigating the kidnapping of one of Chip and Dale’s close friends. The film offers a really dynamic combination of animation and live-action.  This required Layne to tackle most of the film’s scenes solo. Her scene partners were later added during post-production.

“It was an interesting experience because I was acting by myself,” Layne told BOSSIP. “My lovely scene partners Chip and Dale couldn’t be there with me on the day. It was interesting having to lean into my technique of acting so much to accomplish telling the story. Thankfully our director Akiva [Schaffer] was so clear about what we needed. So clear about what was happening in each scene so that made it a lot easier.”

One of the key messages of the ‘Rescue Rangers’ movie is the importance of taking risks. Kiki told us that it was actually a ‘juicy risk’ that catapulted her to fame.

“A big risk that I took was my move to L.A,” Layne told BOSSIP. “I was in Chicago, I was finally starting to break into the theater scene there, but I knew I wanted to do television and film and just be in a place where I could really compete for those larger roles. I took a big leap of faith where there was no plan, no prospects, no representation — just me and a dream. Thankfully I ended up being where I needed to be to book ‘Beale Street.’ That was the start of all I’ve been able to do so far. That was a big juicy risk that thankfully paid off.”

Layne’s breakout role as Tish Rivers in Barry Jenkins’s acclaimed feature, ‘If Beale Street Could Talk’ won her so much critical acclaim and made her an instant Hollywood starlet. We’re certainly glad she took that chance on herself!

Kiki also spoke about living the Disney dream and revealed some of the key Disney characters she was excited to work with for the filming of ‘Chip ‘N Dale: Rescue Rangers.’

“Look, when I watched this film for the first time and the iconic Disney intro kicked off I had to just pause and say ‘Thank you God,’ because that’s a dream come true,” Layne told BOSSIP. “To know that intro is kicking off a film that I am a lead of, that is a dream come true. So I hope I get to say that a few more times Disney!”

“But in terms of who was in the film that I just was like, I can’t believe I get to say that I was in the film with them — Pumba for sure, because ‘The Lion King’ is my favorite movie of all time. Flounder – that was funny. All of the Rescue Rangers. I didn’t grow up watching ‘Chip ‘N Dale,’ it was a little before my time, but of course I knew who they were so just to be a part of that is exciting. There are so many. Every scene is just like ‘Whoa! You’re in this movie too?’ ”

So many of our favorites too!
