Meghan King is married.

Just weeks after the 37-year-old Real Housewives of Orange County star confirmed her relationship with Cuffe Owens, 42, the nephew of President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden, the White House has confirmed the couple wed at Cuffe’s parents’ home in Pennsylvania.

On October 11, PEOPLE confirmed the news with readers, noting that both the President and his First Lady, who had visited Delaware over the weekend, were in attendance when the couple said, “I do,” in a “small, family wedding” in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania.

According to the report, Cuffe is an attorney based out of Los Angeles, whose mother, Valerie Owens, is the president’s sister.

As RHOC fans may recall, Meghan shared her first photo of Cuffe last month. And, at the time, she referred to him as “my man.”

Prior to her relationship with Cuffe, Meghan had been casually dating Will Roos. She also enjoyed a months long courtship with Christian Schauf following her messy divorce from Jim Edmonds, the father of her three kids, daughter Aspen, 4, and twin sons Hart and Hayes, 3, in October 2019.

Although Meghan hasn’t yet shared any official confirmation regarding her wedding, Bravo and Cocktails on Instagram posted a series of images of the former reality star on Monday, one of which seemed to feature Meghan wearing her engagement ring.

The Bravo fan page also shared a photo initially posted by Meghan’s brother, which may have been taken at Meghan and Cuffe’s rehearsal dinner.

Just weeks ago, prior to the reveal of Meghan and Cuffe’s romance, Jim’s girlfriend, Kortnie O’Connor, who he’s been dating since shortly after his and Meghan’s split, confirmed they were engaged.

“Now that our families and friends have been informed of our latest news, I’m ready to share it all with you,” she wrote on Instagram. “I have to admit I am not the most public person with my private life, but in an effort to include all of Jimmy’s supportive fans, I wanted to be able to share (without the pressure of the media). It is my hope we will be able to celebrate our prenuptials in bliss. Thank you for all your sincere well wishes.”

Meghan appeared on The Real Housewives of Orange County in a full-time role from season 10 until season 12.

Some of the posts included lovely pics while others left an impact with just words.

“Virgil completely changed the way I looked at street style and fashion, the way he looked at things inspired me deeply,” Hailey began her post, which included several pics of Virgil standing beside her as she tried on her wedding dress, which he designed. “I will never be able to fully express how grateful I am to have known him and worked with him, from walking on his runways to having him design my wedding dress and all the other amazing moments in between, I felt he was always rooting for me. He was someone who always brought life, charisma, love and fun to any situation, and every room he walked into. A once in a generation creative mind that is so rare and I’ll never forget his impact. We love you Virgil. 🤍”

Rest In Peace to my brother Virgil ! You were loved.”

Alexis Ohanian also shared a message along with a screenshot of a text message he and Virgil had just a few days ago. “Damn. Gutted. @virgilabloh is gone. He just texted me a few days ago… still —just a week ago— pushing me to focus on passion. The world lost an amazing talent today. I had no idea what he was fighting. Please don’t squander your time. I’m trying to do better myself,” he wrote.

“So sad to hear about passing of Virgil Abloh an inspiration to so many and of course an inspiration me. Sending my love to his loved ones,” singer Finneas also shared.

‘Crying Myself To Sleep Every Night’: Rico Nasty Opens Up About Struggles On Playboi Carti’s ‘King Vamp’ Tour

‘Crying Myself To Sleep Every Night’: Rico Nasty Opens Up About Struggles On Playboi Carti’s ‘King Vamp’ Tour

No matter how larger-than-life celebrities appear to be, they are very much human. Life on the road is difficult even when the thousands of people in the crowd are adoring fans. On Saturday night, Rico Nasty took to Twitter to vent about the strain of being mistreated and disrespected night after night opening for Playboi Carti on the King Vamp Tour.

“I dead a** need at least two hours out of each day. To just cry,” she wrote in the now-deleted tweets. “Crazy how I wanted a tour bus my whole life and now I just be on the tour bus crying myself to sleep every night.”

Fans and friends were even more concerned when Rico also tweeted, “I wish I was dead just as much as y’all do trust me…Y’all win.”

Despite the massive tragedy that happened at Astroworld Fest a few weeks ago, there seems to be no effort to control the crowds at these shows as they’ve been seen verbally and physically abusing Rico during her performances. Tour attendees have made a habit of booing Rico, chanting for Carti to come out while she’s still in the middle of performing.

It’s hard enough to tolerate the constant disrespect, but it’s escalated to throwing bottles at her on stage. JT also called out that disgusting behavior earlier this month.

Carti brought Rico onstage during one of his performances last week to hug it out, but he still hasn’t publicly said anything to defend Rico or condemn his fans for mistreating her on tour. Meg Thee Stallion, Kehlani, and “Money” collaborator Flo Milli have posted loving messages for the artist online.

Fans also responded to Rico’s vulnerable and concerning tweets with an outpouring of love and support, noting that she has more than enough talent, hit songs, and amazing performance skills to headline her own show.

Maybe we do need Rico in an all-women line-up with Megan, Kehlani, or Flo Milli because this current situation is unacceptable.

We love you, Rico! Keep your head up, sis.

Virgil Abloh: 5 Things About The Iconic Louis Vuitton & Off-White Designer Dead At 41

Design icon Virgil Abloh, who was formerly Kanye West’s Creative Director, has passed away after a private battle with cancer.

The fashion world is mourning over the loss of Virgil Abloh at 41-years-old. The Illinois native was the Artistic Director of Louis Vuitton and creator of iconic contemporary label Off-White who worked closely with a number of celebrities over the years, including Kanye West and Hailey Baldwin. The news of his death after a private two-year battle with cancer was announced via his Instagram page.

“We are devastated to announce the passing of our beloved Virgil Abloh, a fiercely devoted father, husband, son, brother, and friend. He is survived by his loving wife Shannon Abloh, his children Lowe Abloh and Grey Abloh, his sister Edwina Abloh, his parents Nee and Eunice Abloh, and numerous dear friends and colleagues,” the message began, going on to share details of his health battle.

“For over two years, Virgil valiantly battled a rare, aggressive form of cancer, cardiac angiosarcoma. He chose to endure his battle privately since his diagnosis in 2019, undergoing numerous challenging treatments, all while helming several significant institutions that span fashion, art, and culture,” it read.

“Through it all, his work ethic, infinite curiosity, and optimism never wavered. Virgil was driven by his dedication to his craft and to his mission to open doors for others and create pathways for greater equality in art and design. He often said, ‘Everything I do is for the 17-year-old version of myself,’ believing deeply in the power of art to inspire future generations,” it also said. “We thank you all for your love and support, and we ask for privacy as we grieve and celebrate Virgil’s life.”

He was from Illinois.

Virgil was born on September 30, 1980 in Rockford, Illinois to parents Nee and Eunice Abloh. He is one two siblings, and is the older brother of his sister Edwina, 46.

After completing his high school diploma at Boylan Catholic High School, he went on to pursue his post-secondary studies at the University of Wisconsin–Madison where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in civil engineering in 2002. He fell in love with fashion while studying for a  Master of Architecture at the Illinois Institute of Technology, where he graduated in 2006.

He worked with Kanye West.

Virgil Abloh first met rapper Kanye West in 2007 while on the steps of Chicago print shop Custom Kings after Don C had commissioned the young designer for some work.

“Kanye wasn’t going to put his art form in the hands of the art department at the record label. So he was like, ‘I am going to hire you, and let’s literally work on this 24–7, laptop in hand, nonstop,’” Virgil recalled to GQ in 2019. “So more than any title, I was just his assistant creatively. I believed that this was going to be another chapter in hip-hop,” he explained.

The pair then collaborated on Kanye’s first sneaker collaboration with Louis Vuitton back in 2009, which put streetwear on the map in a big way. “When Kanye and I were first going to fashion shows, there was no one outside the shows. Streetwear wasn’t on anyone’s radar, but the sort of chatter at dinners after shows was like ‘Fashion needs something new. It’s stagnant. What’s the new thing going to be?’ That was the timeline on which I was crafting my ideas,” Virgil also said. The two also interned together at Fendi.

He later worked as creative director on Kanye and Jay-Z’s Watch The Throne album and tour in 2011.

He was Artistic Director of Louis Vuitton.

Virgil took the reigns of Louis Vuitton‘s mens line as Artistic Director in 2018 — a role formerly held by fellow fashion icon Marc Jacobs. “When I was in college, Marc Jacobs was the American designer that went to Europe and injected life into Louis Vuitton by bringing Takashi Murakami or Stephen Sprouse,” Virgil said a year after the history making appointment, which made him the first Black person to lead the French luxury house’s mens line.

“When I stepped into the role, my office is [Marc’s] exact same office. I’m coming in at a time to re-interpret or channel this brand into the modern era. And I’m very much following in the steps of someone who I admire and put a great deal of belief into. I was carrying on a tradition that I believed in,” Virgil also said.

LVMH, the parent company of Louis Vuitton, also issued a statement paying tribute to Virgil after his death. “LVMH, Louis Vuitton and Off White are devastated to announce the passing of Virgil Abloh, on Sunday, November 28th, of cancer, which he had been battling privately for several years,” a tweet read, including a statement from chairman Bernard Arnault.

“We are all shocked after this terrible news. Virgil was not only a genius designer, a visionary, he was also a man with a beautiful soul and great wisdom,” Bernard wrote.

He created Off-White.

Off-White has become one of the most influential contemporary fashion labels in recent years, blending high fashion and streetwear. American-born Virgil founded the label in Milan back in 2012, which quickly went on to become a celebrity favorite worn by the likes of Rihanna, Kylie Jenner, Beyonce, Travis Scott and more.

He also designed Hailey Baldwin’s wedding dress for her nuptials to Justin Bieber in 2019.  “@virgilabloh thank you for making my vision come to life and creating my dream dress. You and your @off____white team are incredible and I’m forever grateful I got to wear your beautiful creation,” she wrote on an Instagram post after the wedding. The backless gown included a long veil that included one of Virgil’s signature design traits of bold text statements, this one appropriately reading “Just Married.”

He has a family.

Virgil married wife Shannon Abloh (née Sundberg) in 2009 after initially meeting in high school. The couple are parents to kids Lowe and Grey.
