Adele Helps a Woman Propose to Her Boyfriend at a Gig in Ireland
Adele kicked off her world tour in Belfast, Ireland on Monday, and since it was also Leap Day, she asked if there were any women who needed help proposing to their boyfriends. According to an old Irish legend, or maybe actual history, St. Brigid struck a deal with St. Patrick to allow women to propose to men on one day every four years for balance, sort of like how the Leap Day balances the calendar. Anyhow, one woman took her up on her offer. She came up and said she’d proposed to her boyfriend Neil earlier in the day, and he said “maybe in a while.” Adele wasn’t cool with that, so she had the whole crowd chant “Come on, Neil!” Neil was still back in the crowd, and he wasn’t mic’d, but apparently he caved because Adele started jumping up and down, and asked for an invite to the wedding. Of course, it remains to be seen whether or not he’s actually ready to get married. Get more here.
Kim Kardashian is Being Sued Over Traffic Accident That Happened Two Years Ago
Kim was involved in a minor fender bender, back in March of 2014. The man she hit, Rafael Linares, wasn’t angry at the time, and the two of them exchanged info and “hugged it out” no tickets were issued. But now Rafael is changing his tune, two years later he’s suing Kim claiming he “sustained personal injuries which caused and will continue to cause pain, discomfort and physical disability.” He’s even claiming that he lost income from the accident. It’s hard to believe that a minor fender bender caused that much trouble, especially 2 years later. It seems like this guy just realized who Kim is and now he want’s a piece of the pie. Check out the photos of the “damage” and get more here.
