Maroon 5 is keeping mum on a potential collaboration with South Korean boy band BTS.

The American pop rock band appeared to hint at a future project with the K-pop group in tweets Wednesday before erasing the posts.

Screenshots show Maroon 5 initially responded with a smiley face to a fan who tweeted, “PLEASE MAKE A COLAB WITH @BTS_twt.” The band answered another inquiry by posting a gif of Elmo shrugging.

Excited fans liked Maroon 5’s initial tweet over 15,000 times. Maroon 5 followed up with a cheeky response Thursday when a fan asked, “But what really is the answer?”

“not sure you can handle it,” the band wrote.

Metro reported Thursday that Maroon 5 had deleted the tweets. BTS has yet to address the rumors.

BTS, who last released the EP Love Yourself: Her in September, reached 12 million Twitter followers Wednesday, according to Billboard. The group has gained significant international exposure over the past year.

Katie Price and Peter Andre’s Take on Parenting their Daughter, Princess

“The conversations they come up with I wouldn’t know about when I was their age. They know a lot about sex stuff and violent stuff – they’re growing up too quickly. I want my kids to be kids for as long as they can.”

Katie Price and Peter Andre both agree that their daughter Princess will not be following in her mother’s footsteps to become a glamour model.

The 38-year-old star first attracted the public’s attention when she bared her breasts as a Page Three model and went on to become a favourite pin-up in men’s magazines and even posed fully nude for Playboy as her alter ego Jordan.

Although Katie is keen for her nine-year-old daughter to enter the world of showbiz she insists there is no chance that Princess will be posing for racy pictures for her because there isn’t a big market for glamour now and her dad Peter would go mad if it was suggested.

Taking part in a Q&A session for The School Of Life in London, Katie was asked if Princess could become a glamour babe, to which the busty beauty replied: “It’s the not the same now – I couldn’t name the top five Page Three girls. The industry has changed so much from when I was in it. Princess isn’t interested in that, she’s like, ‘Mum! Put your t*ts away!’

“She loves being on TV but as for glamour modelling she wouldn’t want to do it – and her dad wouldn’t let her anyway!”

Katie has been working hard to help Princess and her 11-year-old brother Junior launch their showbiz careers, setting them up with Instagram accounts – which have now been removed – to give them a social media presence and featuring them both on her TLC TV show ‘Katie Price’s Pony Club’ and on ‘Loose Women’.

During the talk, the bombshell teased the pair will be doing a lot more “next year” but she does worry they are both growing up too quickly.

Katie – who also has son Harvey, 14, from a relationship with Dwight Yorke, and son Jett, three, and daughter Bunny, two, with her husband Kieran Hayler – said: “The conversations they come up with I wouldn’t know about when I was their age. They know a lot about sex stuff and violent stuff – they’re growing up too quickly. I want my kids to be kids for as long as they can.”

Bahraini actress Haifa Hussein has faced harsh criticism from social media users following her retirement, which raised controversy around the real reasons that led to this unexpected decision, Layalina magazine reported.

Through a video she posted online, Haifa addressed her fans as well as her critics and said: “My dear viewers … I’m sure you’ve missed me. Pardon me for not being able to appear as zealous as usual because I am more upset than you are about temporarily halting my acting career until I find the right role.”

She continued with sharp determination: “Sadly, many interpreted my decision as an attempt to create chaos and controversy, and I want to say something to those: If I did this to provoke controversy — for the sake of art — then let it be … what matters is that I appear as classy and bright as usual … this is my role.”

Haifa recently revealed that her retirement decision was not final, but she was temporarily halting her acting career until she came upon a suitable role that would encourage her to return to the field.

At the end of last year, Haifa announced on Snapchat that she would close her account on that application and shift to Instagram, which has the same features as Snapchat.

He’s one half of the TV presenting duo with Ant McPartlin.

Yet Declan Donnelly,42, is said to be torn between supporting his best friend and Ant’s estranged wife Lisa Armstrong now that the pair have announced their plans to divorce.

A source told The Mirror: ‘Dec will always stand by Ant, but over the years he has, naturally, become very good friends with Lisa, and his wife, Ali, is also very close to her.’

They added: ‘He feels very much torn and it’s a tremendously difficult situation for all concerned.’

Meanwhile, Dec’s wife Ali Astall is said to have become ‘a shoulder to cry on for Lisa’.

MailOnline has contacted Dec’s representatives for comment.

Ant, 42, and Lisa, 41, announced their plans to divorce last week, with Ant’s spokesman confirming to MailOnline on Saturday: ‘In response to the recent speculation in the media, Ant is very sad to announce that, after 11 years, he is ending his marriage to Lisa McPartlin.

‘Ant asks for privacy at this difficult time, for both himself, Lisa and their immediate families. No further statement will be made.’

Ant and Strictly Come Dancing make-up artist Lisa have known each other for 23 years and tied the knot in 2006.

Ant has been living apart from partner Lisa, having moved out of the £6million property they share last year following his stint in rehab for an addiction to painkillers.

He had spent the last two months filming in Australia for ITV reality show I’m A Celebrity, but Lisa was unable to join him overseas, due to her commitments to BBC One’s Strictly Come Dancing.

At the time, Lisa dismissed claims that this made her ‘estranged’ from husband Ant, explaining that she had not been out to Australia with him for 10 years.

Ant and Lisa’s divorce could reportedly cost the ITV star, whose net worth is estimated at £62million, a grand total of £31million.

If it goes ahead, it will be among the largest divorce settlements paid by a UK celebrity in history.

Rita Ora has been working on a secret British movie.

The pop star is no stranger to the big screen having appeared in ‘Fast & Furious 6’ and ‘Southpaw’, while she plays Mia Grey in the ‘Fifty Shades’ franchise.

Now the ‘Anywhere’ hitmaker has revealed she has landed a part in a new film featuring homegrown talent.

She told The Sun newspaper: “I can’t give too much away but it’s really exciting because it’s based out of here and all the actors are British so it’s a really nice vibe.”

In 2016, Rita was rumoured to be in the running for a role in ‘The Flash’ film.

The singer-and-actress was said to be set to play reporter Iris West in the DC Comics movie, in which Ezra Miller plays the super-fast superhero Barry Allen.

However, Kiersey Clemons landed the role of the Picture News journalist who will be The Flash’s love interest in ‘Flashpoint’, which is now slated to be released in 2020.

The Flash appeared briefly in ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ and made his first full appearance on the big screen in ‘Justice League’ in November.

The standalone ‘Flash’ movie will be directed by Rick Famuyiwa from a script written by Phil Lord and Chris Miller.
In the comic book, Iris goes on to marry Barry Allen after the pair fall in love.

In the meantime, Rita has the new movie ‘Fifty Shades Freed’ hitting cinemas next month, and she has even released a song for the soundtrack called ‘For You’, which features One Direction star Liam Payne.
