Taylor Swift made a super-fan’s engagement party extra-special.
“There was a person who is not here, who sort of played a part in all of this,” Alex Goldschmidt announced in a video posted to Instagram. “So I would like to welcome — and if you could give a warm welcome to — my friend Taylor.”
“Alex emailed me and said he was going to do this, that there was a song that was really special for you, too, called ‘King of My Heart,’” Swift said.
“So I’ve come prepared,” she added, motioning to her guitar. “I’ve been off tour for a while, but hopefully it’s alright. This is from Alex but sung by me.”
Friendly exes. Lady Gaga and Christian Carino bumped into each other at a pre-Academy Awards bash three days after their split made headlines.
The former couple were seen speaking at CAA’s pre-Oscars party on Friday, February 22. “Christian Carino walked into the party … said hi to Gaga at one point,” a source exclusively tells Us Weekly.
“But it was brief and then he went to another room.” The “Million Reasons” singer, 32, was also spotted alongside her A Star Is Born costar Bradley Cooper at the same event.
The pair were talking “in a corner together all night,” the insider reveals to Us. “They looked so close, they almost seem like a couple,” the source adds.
Fans have been speculating that there are romantic sparks between the costars, despite the fact that Cooper is dating Irina Shayk, with whom he shares daughter Lea, 23 months. (The model was not present at the party.)
Somehow, long before she became royal, Kate amassed an estimated personal fortune worth about $9 million
Kate didn’t really earn her millions in the same way that we, the unwashed masses, earn our salaries. That is, by showing up, logging on and putting in eight hours of trying to look busy for the boss.
Kate’s dough actually comes courtesy of her parents, Carole and Michael Middleton, who have built up their family business such that it is now worth about $54 million.
Interestingly, the clan was pretty cashed up long before Carole had the idea to sell paper plates and cake toppers to frazzled mothers.
Michael’s grandfather set up a seven-figure trust for his descendants, which is said to have been used to help pay the astronomical school fees for Kate, Pippa and James. We’re talking up to $633,000 for high school per child here.
Both Wills and Harry also inherited about $19 million from Princess Diana’s will when they turned 30.
Interestingly, Kate’s bank account beats that of Meghan Markle’s, who is said to be worth about $7 million, though she earned her moolah by actually working.
