Family and friends remembered Nicole Lovewine, 45, and her partner, 42-year-old Detra Brown at a memorial on Friday in Norfolk, Virginia.

Lovewine and Brown were shot and killed when they rushed to help Nicole’s 19-year-old daughter, who was shot in the shoulder by her boyfriend. The pregnant teenager was treated and released from a hospital.

Norfolk Police say 19-year-old Ziontay Brian Ricardo Palmer argued with the teenager when he dropped her off at her home. He allegedly shot her when she got out of the vehicle.

Lovewine and Brown were on their way home from work when they saw the shooting and confronted Palmer who shot them both point blank in the head.

Lovewine leaves behind four children, three boys and the 19-year-old victim.

Neighbors Sara “Sa’idah” Costine, 44, and a 39-year-old woman heard the gunfire and rushed outside where they were shot by Palmer, according to WTKR News.

Costine, a single mother-of-six, was killed and the 39-year-old woman was wounded.

Three of Costine’s six children were playing on a trampoline and witnessed their mother’s murder. The youngest is just 6 years old.

Palmer was arrested and charged with 3 counts of second-degree murder, 2 counts of malicious wounding and 5 counts of using a firearm in the commission of a felony.

Norfolk Police Chief Larry Boone intentionally called the incident a “mass shooting” to shine a national spotlight on the tragedy.

Priyanka Chopra Reveals How She & Nick Jonas Make Marriage Work Amid ‘Tough’ Schedules

Priyanka Chopra Reveals How She & Nick Jonas Make Marriage Work Amid ‘Tough’ Schedules

Although Priyanka Chopra and husband Nick Jonas have often faced conflicting schedules, they revealed how they’ve been able to work through it and keep their marriage strong.

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas are together forever — for better or worse. In a recent interview with InStyle‘s Ladies First With Laura Brown podcast, Priyanka, 39, opened up about working through a long-distance relationship with husband Nick, 29, amid their busy work schedules that keep them apart. “This year has been really, really tough. It was really, really tough to be away from home for an entire year, especially at a time when you can’t travel to see your family,” the Indian-born actress revealed.

Priyanka continued, “Just the uncertainty of my mom and my brother being in India, my husband being in America while I was in the U.K. … it just was so much uncertainty and that, to me, was terrifying of not being able to just get on a flight and travel, just in case something went wrong or something happened,” she shared. “But thankfully, you know, everyone was okay.”

The Matrix Resurrections actress shared that although she and Nick “didn’t have a dramatic separation,” they had to be “really careful” due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. “He had to quarantine, I had to quarantine whenever we saw each other at that time. And that’s usually not conducive to a production schedule because you don’t really have much time. You have, like, two days off,” she said.

“It was all really tricky but we managed. He flew down a bunch of times, I flew down a couple of times. My mom came and stayed with me for almost five months, which was really nice,” the movie star explained, adding how they “talk all the time” to stay in touch. “We know each other’s hearts and we prioritize each other in everything that we do,” she went on. “We’ve had individual careers and we’re both very clear about never interfering in each other’s professional lives because we’re always partners and assets.”

The Quantico alum shared that she and her hubby “have an opinion on each others’ things,” but still make their own career-based decisions, considering how long they’ve both built up their own respective brands independently. “I think at the same time, it’s very important to keep a check on another person’s heart and how they’re feeling. And I have to say, my husband’s amazing at doing that,” she added. “Like I said, this year was hard for me being in London. He would just drop everything — come in for even, like a day — just to have dinner with me and fly back. Stuff like that, you just have to prioritize each other and then everything feels right.”

Lucky for their relationship — and for beautiful photos we all love to look at! — the pair made a recent appearance together on the red carpet for The Fashion Awards in London on Nov. 29. Priyanka sported a beautiful floral coat with a matching jumpsuit while Nick wore a black suit with pops of red, including a red shirt, handkerchief, and shoes. Ahead of the event, Nick posted photos on Instagram, raving about his wife being the “star of the show.”

Shawn Mendes ‘Really Upset’ After Losing Dog Tarzan In Camila Cabello Split: He Wants ‘Split Custody’

Shawn Mendes Camila Cabello

Shawn Mendes is clearly feeling the loss after splitting with Camila Cabello — of his furry friend, Tarzan!

Shawn Mendes, 23, is heartbroken after splitting with his girlfriend of over two years, Camila Cabello, 24. HollywoodLife has EXCLUSIVELY learned, however, that the “Stitches” singer isn’t in stitches about his fizzled out romance — but rather about the loss of his beloved dog Tarzan in the process! “Shawn is trying to move on with his life and he is getting ready to drop a single and go on tour,” a source close to Shawn said. “Although he is in a good place in his head over the breakup with Camila, there is one aspect of it that he is not okay with, which is being separated from his dog Tarzan!”

One year ago, on Nov. 3, 2020, Camila and Shawn announced on Instagram that they had added a new addition to their family — a beautiful male puppy who they named Tarzan. In a video posted by Shawn to Instagram at the time, his “Senorita” singer ex was seen cuddling their new bundle of joy and they both looked beyond happy at the time. According to the source, “Shawn and Camila got Tarzan together and Tarzan had become like a child to Shawn. Now that him and Camila are broken up, she has Tarzan and he is really upset over the separation from him. He really misses Tarzan greatly.”

To make matters worse, it seems that Camila has been taunting Shawn by sharing endless photos and videos of her and Tarzan together on her social media. On Nov. 25, Camila posted a video to Instagram, which showed her petting Tarzan. In the caption to the Thanksgiving video, she said, “I have a lot to be thankful for, but I’m especially grateful that I gotta whole squad trying to hang w me while I meditate. Happy gratitude day everybody! I’m very thankful for all of you on here who send me love, listen to my music, and support me on this creative/ life journey! Even though I haven’t met a lot of you, you guys show me love, kindness, and support and I’m sending it to all of you right back.”

One week prior, on Nov. 17, the duo shocked fans when they announced that they were breaking up in an Instagram post, which read, “We’ve decided to end our romantic relationship but our love for one another as humans is stronger than ever. We started our relationship as best friends and will continue to be best friends. We so appreciate your support from the beginning and moving forward.” But it seems like a lot must have changed since then, as they do not follow each other on Instagram anymore. According to the source, Shawn’s main concern now is reuniting with Tarzan. “Shawn just wants to see his dog and he would like to work out some sort of arrangement with Camila where they get to split custody of Tarzan. Shawn really feels that this would be best for the dog,” the insider said.

‘The Bachelorette’: Michelle Eliminates [SPOILER] After He Says He’s ‘Falling In Love’ With Her

Published

It was time for hometown dates on the Nov. 30 episode of ‘The Bachelorette,’ and all four guys expressed their feelings for Michelle. Unfortunately, one still had to be eliminated.

The Nov. 30 episode of The Bachelorette featured the families of Michelle Young’s final four men traveling to Minnesota to meet the Bachelorette. While Michelle continued to form connections this week, it also meant the end of the journey for one contestant. Michelle eliminated Rodney Mathews during the episode, and said it was the “hardest decision [she] had to make” on the show so far.

Michelle and Rodney had a playful and fun connection all season long, but it ultimately wasn’t enough to advance things to the next level. Before meeting Rodney’s family, Michelle admitted, “Rodney is this amazing person. I can feel my emotions and my feelings for him growing stronger and stronger. He’s truly somebody who I could see as a life partner.” Michelle felt like Rodney was someone who was her “best friend,” but her connections with the other three men were stronger.

Michelle’s hometown date with Rodney went well, even though his mother was admittedly worried about him getting hurt in the end. At the end of the date, Rodney even opened up further about his feelings for Michelle for the first time. “I just want to be your person,” he gushed to Michelle. “I’m definitely falling in love with you. Just know the strong feelings that I have. I would never just say that. This is very different for me.”

Even though Michelle loved that Rodney opened up, she just didn’t see a future with him. Their relationship was more of a kinship than anything else. “It felt good to hear where Rodney was at,” Michelle said. One thing I’ve always spoken about with my parents is they’re each other’s best friends. I laugh so hard with Rodney like my parents laugh with each other, and that’s exactly what you want. Rodney and I have this really strong connection and every time I leave a date with Rodney I feel really good. But, if anything I’ve learned from this process, is how much a short amount of time can change your feelings. Every minute really does count when you’re falling in love.”

Michelle gave roses to Nayte Olukoya, Joe Coleman and Brandon Jones, sending Rodney home. “I know that we’ve had conversations about you being an underdog or feeling like you’re an underdog, and I need you to know that who you are is enough,” Michelle told Rodney after eliminating him. “I don’t want you thinking you weren’t enough. That’s not true. It’s just feelings moved quicker in other relationships. You’re this amazing person and everything that makes up Rodney is so special.”

Understandably, Rodney was upset, but he took it well. “I am falling in love with you,” Rodney said to Michelle, before leaving. “I just need you to know that that’s something that doesn’t change easily. I’m always going to care about you, Michelle, forever. I want to just do anything to make you laugh and smile, always. You’re amazing, Michelle, so thank you.”
