A few things in life are certain. Death, iOS updates, Amr Diab and Dina El-Sherbini are together. Okay wait, the latter may not be official but recent social media posts seem to basically prove that the celebrity couple are, indeed, together.

This game of speculations, OTPs and shipping started a while ago, and Diab releasing a song that may in fact was about El-Sherbini did not help the fans. But we’re in luck, because we don’t just have one, nor two but THREE posts that further strengthens our Amr-is-definitely-with-Dina theories. Check them out below.

Director Tarek Alarian posted an Instagram picture of himself with a few friends, and the not-official cute couple. His caption said nothing but “Stay tuned.” What does that mean? Are they finally announcing that they’re together? Are Amr and Dina getting married? So many questions!

Socialites Mostafa Hosny and Heba Serag Eldin were spotted with Amr and Dina at The Lemon Tree & Co. They could easily be friends, but we’re not buying that whatsoever!

Last but not least, Hosny posted a video of Diab looking surprised at The Lemon Tree & Co with a birthday cake. The caption for the post said, “Best Surprise From Dina El-sherbiny.” If this doesn’t prove that Amr and Dina are together, we don’t know what will. Who would go through all that trouble to make sure they surprise someone unless they were romantically involved?

WE SAID THIS: Amr and Dina are together, we rest our case. For real though, we really do hope they are!

Adele has reportedly held talks over playing Nancy in a new film of the musical Oliver!.

The Grammy Award-winning star could be set to make the switch to Hollywood, with movie bosses having approached Adele about playing one of the central characters from Charles Dickens’ iconic novel, which was turned into a film in 1968.

A source close to the singer, who has four-year-old son Angelo with her husband Simon Konecki, told The Sun newspaper: “It would be a major part for her and she’s seriously considering it.

“She’s talked about Angelo being her number one priority and she sees this as a role that he could appreciate too. It would be a new challenge for her but one she would definitely be up for.”

Adele has never before appeared in a movie, but the chances of her making the switch into the film business are thought to have increased after hinting in June she no longer wished to tour.

The 29-year-old star was forced to cancel her planned shows at Wembley Stadium on July 1 and July 2 after damaging her vocal cords.

And Adele revealed the news to her fans in an emotional social media post.

At the time, she wrote: “To say I’m heartbroken would be a complete understatement. I’m already maxed out on steroids and aids for my voice.

“I’ve considered doing Saturday night’s show but it’s highly unlikely I’d even make it through the set and I simply can’t crumble in front of you all and walk out on you all in that way.

“I’m so desperate to do them that I’ve even considered miming, just to be in front of you and be with you. But I’ve never done it and I cannot in a million years do that to you. It wouldn’t be the real me up there.”

However, it now appears she could turn her attentions towards Hollywood, with Sir Cameron Mackintosh and Working Title Films, who helped make Les Miserables in 2012, set to produce the remake of Oliver!.

Moroccan actress and singer Dunia Batma attracted attention today in a published interview where she revealed who the highest-paid actress in the GCC area—including Kuwait, Qatar, and the UAE—was.

The answer, according to Batma, is Dunia Batma herself.

According to news reports, fury rose from a stream of unnamed Gulf actresses, though the identities of these angry actresses were revealed; it was unclear, however, whether these actresses were aware that Batma meant highest-paid Moroccan actress in the Gulf.

Batma did not reveal where she had come by this information.

There’s been a very obvious gap on the judges’ bench since Kathem al-Saher left The Voice after season 3. MBC has been on the lookout since for some new blood to reinvigorate interest in the show. (Note to MBC: maybe stop remaking everything. Get crazy. Make something new for a change.)

Rumours have floated names like Palestinian singer Mohammed Assaf and Lebanese singer Melhem Zein as replacements—artists under the Platinum Records that the label is keen on promoting.

MBC has yet to comment on these rumours. But ask an Arab to comment on something, and they will comment:

Maya Diab, the Lebanese pop singer, told Sayidaty in as-yet unpublished interview that neither Assaf nor Zein would be serving on The Voice. She did not name her sources in the interview.

Celebrity couple Jordan Peele and Chelsea Peretti have reportedly welcomed their first child.

The 38-year-old actor and director and 39-year-old actress welcomed a baby boy, Beaumont Gino, on July 1, according to E! News.

Peele and Peretti have yet to confirm their son’s birth, although Peretti did return to Instagram last week following a two-week absence. The actress announced her pregnancy in February, shortly after news broke that Beyoncé was expecting twins.

“Beyonce schmonce,” she captioned a photo of her baby bump at the time.

Peele and Peretti started dating in 2013, and got engaged in November 2015. The actress confirmed in April 2016 that she and Peele had eloped, with their beloved rescue dog as the “only witness.”

“Eloped a bit ago. Our only witness was this lil guy,” she wrote on Instagram.

Peele is known for starring on Key and Peele with Keegan-Michael Key, and released his directorial debut, Get Out, in February. Peretti plays Gina Linetti on Brooklyn Nine-Nine, which will return for a fifth season in the fall.

Rapper Kanye West, a key player in Jay Z’s subscription-based music streaming service Tidal, has reportedly left the company over a money dispute.

Tidal has threatened to sue him over this, reported TMZ.

Sources from Tidal told TMZ that West has been unhappy with the company and has complained that the company owes him over $3 million.

According to the sources, a month ago West’s lawyer sent a letter to Tidal, saying the company was in breach and the contract was terminated. Over the next two weeks, lawyers for both sides tried to resolve the conflict but failed.

West’s lawyers sent out a second letter two weeks ago again, declaring the contract was over.

His decision to split from Tidal predates the release of Jay Z’s album 4:44, in which he trashes West.

As per the report, West was unhappy as his Saint Pablo album had resulted in one and half million new subscribers to Tidal, for which he was supposed to get a bonus but the company hasn’t allegedly paid up.

He also says Tidal didn’t keep up its word on reimbursing him for music videos, whereas on Tidal’s end, West didn’t deliver the videos required according to the contract.

TMZ reported that Tidal has issued a letter to West that the company still has an exclusive contract with the rapper and if he tries to go to another streaming service, they would sue him.

Beyonce and Jay-Z have apparently revealed the names of their twins.

According to TMZ, the power couple have named their children Rumi and Sir Carter, to go alongside their daughter Blue Ivy.

It was revealed as Bey and Jay apparently filed trademarks on Friday to protect and secure the rights to the unusual names.

Bey and Jay have been completely silent about their new children, and haven’t even officially confirmed the news she’s given birth, but it was reported the twins were born on 14th June.

And it was reported they were being kept in hospital as a precaution after being born prematurely.

The boy and girl were said to be “under the lights” – a common treatment for jaundice, which sometimes occurs in premature babies.

According to TMZ the twins were born on June 14 in Los Angeles hospital and despite the “minor issue” the babies were expected to make a full recovery.

A source told the website: “We’re told a “minor issue” surfaced, and as a result … doctors do not feel comfortable releasing them. We do not know the nature of the issue.

“One source told us Beyonce also remains at the hospital, but as far as we know she’s okay. The babies are expected to be okay as well.

“It’s unclear when everyone will be released.”

The Single Ladies star, 35, and her 47-year-old rapper husband Jay Z’s twins now make the Carters a family of five alongside daughter Blue Ivy, 5.

“Bey and Jay are thrilled and have started sharing the news with their family and closest friends,” a source previously told People.

To accomodate the new arrivals, the famous couple are believed to be renting a sprawling $54.5million mansion complete with an infinity pool and separate house.

Known as La Villa Contenta, or the happy house, the Carter clan are thought to be settling in just fine and with the main mansion boasting 14 bathrooms, 10 bedrooms and a 25ft infinity pool – there is plenty of room to potter around.


Furnishings inside the main villa include a ‘museum-quality’ Chippendale mirror and 18th century chandeliers carved from amethyst and rock crystal and an unusual 2,500-year-old lion’s head bust that was discovered at the base of Mount Vesuvius in Italy.

Relaxing walks can be partaken in the 6.3 acres of grounds including a rose garden with more than 1,000 flower bushes and a landscaped desert area.
