CELEB SPOTTING: Shakira Hangs Out with Boyfriend Gerard Pique and Son Milan

What a beautiful family! Pop star Shakira and her soccer star boyfriend Gerard Pique shared a great family pic with their 18-month-old son Milan as they hung out in the country on a ranch!

“Countryside!”  Gerard, 27, captioned the photo on Instagram. The little family looked happy smiling as Gerard held Milan and wrapped his arm around Shakira. Milan himself was rocking a nice plaid shirt and jeans (definitely ranch appropriate!). Gerard shared another photo of the family riding on a funicular (fancy word for a tram-like vehicle) throughout an unknown city.

Though they sure are happy with Milan, Shakira herself told Latina magazine in April, that she definitely wants more kids…a LOT of them! “I would love to have eight or nine kids with Gerard,” she said. “My own futbol team.” Geez! All power to her.

Jennifer and Julia Hudson Testify During Family Murder Trial

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On the very first day of the Hudson family murder trial, prosecutors wasted no time in getting the star witnesses on the stand, calling Jennifer Hudson and her sister Julia to the stand. The sisters testified against Julia’s ex-husband William Balfour, who is accused of murdering Jennifer’s mother, Darnell Donerson, brother Jason Hudson, and 7-year-old nephew (Julia’s son) Julian.

Jennifer testified first, claiming that she had feared for her sister and warned her not to marry Balfour repeatedly. The singer, who broke down in tears while on the stand, said that “we did not like how he treated her.” A week before the murder, her entire family made a surprise visit to her home, which turned out to be the last time Jennifer saw them alive.  “Thank God I had the opportunity,” she said in tears.

Julia testified shortly after, stating that her  ex-husband threatened to kill her between “24 and 26” times during the course of their marriage out of fear that she would leave him. The two were still married at the time of the killings and their divorce was finalized earlier this month. At one point, Balfour threatened the family as well, saying “Julia, if you leave me, I will kill you. I will kill your family first and you will be the last to die.”

The trial is expected to last four weeks.

I’m not sure if Balfour will be sentenced to the death penalty, but, if not, I hope that they put this man in jail for life! I remember the tragedy in 2008, right when Jennifer was really breaking out into her own in terms of her music and acting. Of course, a tragedy like this would be terrible and heartbreaking at any time, but to have that happen right at the height of your glory like that is even worse. I sincerely am keeping Jennifer, Julia, and their family in my thoughts at this time.

Nick Carter Did Not Attend Sister Leslie Carter’s Funeral

So why didn’t Backstreet Boy Nick Carter attend his sister Leslie Carter’s funeral? According to Carter, nobody in his family TOLD him when the funeral was and where it was taking place.

Instead on Saturday (the same evening of the funeral), Carter gave a concert in Philadelphia AND hosted a party at a resort in Atlantic City but it wasn’t because he didn’t want to go see his sis laid to rest.

Nick told The Insider, “I wanted to be at my sister’s funeral, but my family has always had a complicated dynamic. I love my family. I want to thank everyone for all of their compassion and support that I have received during this most difficult time. There are so many emotions for me surrounding the loss of my sister. I am trying to stay healthy, positive and focused.”

It is sad to hear this. If you didn’t see the House of Carters on E! back in 2006, the instability of the family was evident. There obviously is more to what meets the eye and it is heartbreaking to hear that the family couldn’t at least get together in peace for Leslie despite their “complicated dynamic”.

Becks, His Boys, and A Beard.

He hasn’t led his LA Galaxies team to any major wins yet…but multi-million dollar contracted David Beckham continues to enjoy the movie-star lifestyle in the States.

David spends some Q-time with his two sons at yet another LA Lakers game.  Maybe growing out the beard will give Becks some extra luck for his game play.  Or not.
