BLACKPINK’s Jennie and BTS member V, who were previously rumored to be romantically involved, have reportedly parted ways.
According to a report by JTBC on December 6, 2023, Jennie and V reportedly ended their alleged relationship just before V’s upcoming military enlistment.
However, online communities and social media are buzzing with doubts about the breakup news due to recent dating proofs that have surfaced.
On December 1, 2023, eagle-eyed fans spotted Jennie sharing a meal at V’s residence. Notably, the dining table featured in a photo posted by the BLACKPINK star on November 29, 2023, looked remarkably similar to the one at V’s house.

Adding to the speculation, both Jennie and V were said to be in London, England, towards the end of November. This has led netizens to speculate that the two spent quality time together overseas before V’s enlistment this December.
Yet, not everyone is convinced by this evidence. Some fans argue that Jennie’s photo was taken at a restaurant in London.
Additionally, there are discrepancies in the timelines, as the Blackpink star returned to Korea on November 23, 2023, after a state banquet at Buckingham Palace, while V took a flight to London on November 27, 2023.
Despite the conflicting reports regarding Jennie and V’s relationship, there is still no official confirmation of their separation. Neither Big Hit Music nor YG Entertainment has acknowledged the breakup of these two idol stars.
Jennie and V’s relationship rumors started nearly a year ago
The dating rumors surrounding V and Jennie emerged when BTS members launched personal Instagram accounts in December 2022. Notably, BTS only followed members and official accounts, but V was seen following Jennie.
The speculations gained momentum on May 22, 2023, when a picture of Blackpink’s star and BTS’s star traveling to Jeju Island surfaced.
In the photo, they were seen seated next to each other in a car, both sporting sunglasses. The alignment of their side profiles and hairstyles strongly indicated that the individuals in the picture were none other than Jennie and V.
Subsequently, fans raised suspicions of a Lovestagram when they noticed overlapping Instagram posts between the two idols. V changed his Instagram profile name to ‘V,’ while Jennie changed hers to ‘J.’
Later on, Jennie and V were once again captured together, holding hands in Paris, as documented by French photographer Amar Taoualit.
Notably, both idols were individually scheduled to be in France around that time, with V serving as a brand ambassador for Céline and Jennie actively promoting The Idol at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival.
Furthermore, additional images of the two idols continued to surface, triggering a debate regarding their authenticity and potential manipulation through Photoshop.
While some fans expressed concerns about Jennie’s privacy, YG Entertainment took a proactive stance, suspecting unauthorized access to the Blackpink star’s iCloud.
In response, the entertainment company officially announced, “We have requested the police to investigate the origin of the circulated personal photos of Blackpink’s Jennie. YG has been actively monitoring the situation and filed a lawsuit in September after gathering relevant information.”
Despite numerous rumors surrounding Jennie and V’s relationship, both idols have chosen to remain silent on the matter. Neither of their respective companies has issued any statements addressing the speculation.
Normani Clears Instagram Feed and Likes Tweets about New Music
Fans of Normani are very excited!
American singer Normani, aka Normani Kordei Hamilton, has cleared her Instagram feed, and fans are happy about it!
Netizens believe she took this action to release her new music, which her fans have been waiting for a long time. Another reason why fans believe Normani is releasing new music and even a new album is because she has been liking tweets about the topic.
One keen user noticed this activity and took to Reddit to share the details. They shared a couple of screenshots with the caption, “Normani has cleared her instagram and likes tweets about new music.”
The first screenshot showed a clean slate of Normani’s official Instagram handle, with no posts or a profile picture. Similarly, the second and third slides were screenshots of her Twitter handle showing the “Likes” section.
Over there, it could be seen that she had liked a couple of tweets from her fans who believed her activity over Instagram hinted at the release of her new music. One of the fan tweets she had liked read, “.@normani announce the ALBUM this time.”

This particular fan tweet that Normani had liked led many of her fans to believe that she might not just be releasing a new song; there might be a whole new album that she was releasing.
One excited fan took to the comment section of the Reddit post and commented, “I’m excited because she released Wild Side last time she cleared out her IG, so we should be close.”
On the other hand, some netizens were skeptical as there had been no new music from Normani for ages. “She has been edging us for years, and it’s kinda hard to get it up anymore. Please let this finally be it,” one Redditor wrote.
Likewise, another Reddit user wrote, “I’m not getting my hopes up. Normani, you will not play with my emotions again. I’ve been waiting 5 yrs for your Album, and I’m tired. Motivation was amazing then you went silent. Just going to watch and wait!”
As the above fan mentioned, it has been five years since Normani released a new solo album. However, in recent times, there have been numerous rumors regarding the singer finally releasing new music and even a new album.
For instance, it’s speculated that Normani’s new album is titled The Butterfly Effect. Moreover, in June 2023, DeuxMoi revealed a tip they got from an anonymous source, confirming that the album would indeed be titled The Butterfly Effect.
Additionally, the anonymous insider revealed that the said album wouldn’t be released on the previously speculated date – May 2023 – and that fans will have to wait for more months. At the time, it was mentioned that the new release date was August 2023.
The source also reported that there were even possibilities that the date would get pushed again. So, considering that it’s currently February 2024 and the album isn’t out yet, it can be assumed that the release date was once again pushed back.
That said, there was one new update that came in August 2023; it was revealed that Normani signed a new management team in August 2023. Rolling Stone reported that Brandon Creed and Lydia Asrat now manage the singer.
This news came months after she left her now-former management, S10 Entertainment’s Brandon Silverstein, in May 2023. At the same time, a rep for Normani released a statement to the Rolling Stone, revealing Normani has new music on the way.
They stated, “With new music on the horizon, and Asrat and Creed now at the helm of her musical career, she and the rest of her team are extremely excited to embark on this new chapter and partnership. She wishes Silverstein all the best.”
To conclude, there have been several rumors about Normani’s new music, and fans have waited patiently for a long time. And now, with Normani clearing her Instagram feed, it seems time has finally arrived.
Bridgit Mendler Is a Mother, Reveals She Adopted a Baby Boy in 2022
“I’m so lucky — being a parent is the biggest gift,” wrote Bridgit.
Less than 24 hours after being announced as the CEO of Northwood Space, Disney star Bridgit Mendler has dropped another big news — she is a mother!
On Tuesday, February 20, 2024, the American actress took to her X (formerly Twitter) handle to reveal the good news among her fans and well-wishers. Through her tweet, she revealed that she had become a mother via adoption.
Mendler had posted a picture of her longtime husband, Griffin Cleverly, and her child – a baby boy – clicked at the seashore during a beautiful sunset. Both her husband and her baby were facing front, so their face wasn’t visible.
She captioned her tweet by mentioning that the other news, besides her being a CEO, that she wanted to share was that she is a mother to a 4-year-old son. She stated that she started fostering in 2021 and adopted her son around Christmas 2022.
As she went on, she added that she was so lucky and that being a parent was the biggest gift and defining experience. Her caption read, “The other news I wanted to share is I’m a mama to a sweet 4yo boy.”

“Started fostering in 2021, adopted near Christmas of 2022. I’m so lucky — being a parent is the biggest gift and most defining experience there is. That’s my news for now, folks,” her caption concluded, with a yellow heart emoji at the end.
Besides the above-mentioned details, Mendler didn’t share any further information about her only child — she is yet to welcome biological children with her husband. For now, fans have to wait and see if she sheds any light on her baby’s name or any other details of her son.
Nonetheless, as soon as the announcement was made, netizens quickly flooded the comment section of the tweet with congratulatory messages and sent their well-wishes to the actress and her kid.
One Twitter user quickly wrote, “Mother on all fields okayyy congrats,” referencing Mendler’s involvement in different fields like acting, singing, and business ventures. “u deserve everything in this life and more,” wrote another user.
Similarly, one wrote, “Congratulations on your journey into motherhood! Adopting and fostering truly change lives, and that first holiday season as a family is always extra special. Here’s to many more shared sunsets and precious moments.”
“We don’t have the same 24 hours as @bridgitmendler,” wrote one Twitter user, referencing the whirlwind 24 hours that fans of Mendler have experienced. “Wow. You are incredible. Following your journey and couldn’t be prouder of the human you are,” another commented.
The news also reached Reddit, where Redditors left comments like, “She truly is a gem!” “Every time I hear about what she’s up to, she doing great things. You go, girl,” and “Fostering is such a beautiful gift for the right people!”
As mentioned earlier, this is Mendler’s first child, as she has yet to welcome any children with her husband. The husband-wife duo has been married since 2019 but was yet to welcome any kids until they adopted a baby boy in 2022, which was kept secret until now.

Speaking a little of Mendler’s relationship with her husband, she began dating Cleverly sometime in 2017, around two years after she ended her relationship with her now-former boyfriend, Shane Harper.
After dating for two years, they took their relationship to a new level and got engaged. The actress announced her engagement news via an Instagram post on April 20, 2019. “Looking forward to holding ur hand forever,” a part of her caption read.
Months later, on October 17, 2019, she again took to her Instagram handle to reveal that she had shared the wedding vows with her now-husband. She posted a picture from their wedding and wrote a heartwarming caption.
Her caption read, “Still riding the high of the weekend. Thank you to everyone for the abundance of love that you showered on griff and I. We are so excited for this new chapter.”
Around a month later, in November 2019, Mendler briefly opened up about her intimate beach wedding to Cleverly. During her interview with Extra, she stated, “It was magical. There was a great sunset.”
“And there was actually even this dude who built a sandcastle behind us while we were getting married — in his board shorts, constructing this beautiful, amazing sandcastle. While we are doing our vows, I could just see him in my eye line,” she added.
Since their wedding, the married couple has always been together and supported each other on their highs and lows. Furthermore, since Christmas 2022, they have secretly been relishing parenthood until Mendler’s announcement on February 20, 2024, made it public.
Spencer Barbosa Launches Relationship with New Boyfriend on Valentine’s Day
“Cheeky little valentine’s day post”
TikTok star Spencer Barbosa recently soft-launched her new relationship with her new boyfriend on the special occasion of Valentine’s Day.
On February 14, 2024, Barbosa took to her Instagram handle to share a series of pictures featuring herself and her secret boyfriend. The photos showed herself on a lakeside, donning a bikini and white hat.
On the other hand, her boyfriend wore blue shorts and a cap backward. Additionally, the TikTok star’s boyfriend was holding her hand as he faced front – hiding his face – and Barbosa was turning backward and smiling.
“Cheeky little valentine’s day post,” she captioned her post alongside one see-no-evil monkey emoji and one love letter emoji. This immediately made her fanbase frenzy, with one Instagram user quickly commenting, “She has a boyfriend?”
Likewise, many of her fans were supportive, as one user wrote, “#1 SUPPORTER OF THIS RELATIONSHIP YALL ARE SO CUTE.” “Happy v-day spencie, love to see you happy & in love,” wrote another Instagram user.

“I’m living for this soft launch,” wrote fellow internet star Mary Jelkovsky. Moreover, some netizens wanted to know more about Barbosa’s new secret boyfriend, with one user commenting, “We want a boyfriend reveal,” along with face with hand-over-mouth emojis.
This soft launch was the first time Barbosa featured her boyfriend on any of her social media handles; however, this isn’t the first time she has opened up about having a partner.
Besides, Barbosa also shared an Instagram story on Valentine’s Day where she put up a link to share how she met her boyfriend. “Thought today would be the perfect day to tell you guys how we met,” she wrote above the link.
The link made her fans discover she met her now-boyfriend around four years ago through TikTok. She mentioned that she had commented on his picture, and at the time, she thought he was cute. Other than this, she didn’t reveal any other details.
If that’s correct, then it’s safe to assume that Barbosa and her secret boyfriend have been dating for some time, and her boyfriend is the same guy she mentioned in a couple of her past YouTube videos.
For instance, on October 3, 2023, she uploaded a video on YouTube titled ‘MOVING IN WITH MY BOYFRIEND (for a week).’ The video description revealed that her boyfriend lives in Toronto, and she was moving in with him there for a week.
Likewise, on September 14, 2023, she uploaded a short on YouTube titled ‘Surprising my boyfriend while he’s at school.’ This YouTube short revealed that her boyfriend might be studying at a university; however, the university he studies in wasn’t revealed.
Since Barbosa has been giving out little details about her new relationship, eagle-eyed fans have done some digging and found out that her new boyfriend is a non-celebrity named Cameron Nicolaides – he also lives in Toronto, Canada.
Some Redditors came to this conclusion after finding out that Nicolaides was with Barbosa at the premiere of the 2023 hit movie Barbie. Furthermore, one Reddit user even claimed Nicolaides was at Barbosa’s father’s birthday.

That said, Barbosa has yet to confirm these fan theories about who her boyfriend is, as she hasn’t revealed any details about her new boyfriend, except that he is also Canadian like herself and is a university student. For now, her fans have to wait for the boyfriend reveal.
Before she began dating her now-boyfriend, Barbosa was previously in a long-term relationship with her now-former boyfriend, Morgan Penwell. She first teased her relationship with Penwell via Instagram on December 5, 2021.
She finally did a boyfriend reveal on January 1, 2022, and afterward, they often began featuring each other on their respective social media handles. It seemed like they were happy together, and things eventually went wrong between the then-couple.
They stopped posting each other, and fans immediately noticed something was wrong between them. Their break up rumors were ultimately confirmed by Barbosa on April 15, 2023 – via a TikTok video. She mentioned that they broke up a few weeks ago.

In the TikTok video, she stated, “There is no easy way to say this, but me and Morgan have broken up. I wanted to tell you guys as soon as it happened. But I knew for me to heal, but I knew for me to heal, without other people’s comments.”
“I always preach to you guys that you deserve to put Yourself first. That you deserve to put Yourself first. And you deserve happiness. And you deserve the world. And the same goes for me. I had to follow my advice,” Barbosa added.
Barbosa also mentioned that splitting with Penwell was a mutual decision, and she urged her well-wishers not to drag Penwell. In the comment section, Penwell later commented that it was all love between them, meaning they were on good terms despite the break up.
