9 Love Lessons We’ve Learned From Tia Mowry And Cory Hardrict’s Sweet Love Over the Years

Today marks nine years of marital bliss for actors Tia Mowry-Hardrict and Cory Hardrict and watching their love grow has taught us a few things.

 #1: Be Down From The Start

“I had odd jobs. I worked at K-Mart, graveyard shift, security. That’s when I was just grinding man. I met my wife during them days. She was with me. She was just coming out of Sister, Sister, but they had everything man and I didn’t have anything. I had a studio apartment, sleeping in the corner, no furniture for almost two years,” the actor revealed. “I was waiting on a bus stop—after I shot my first film. Her sister and her drove by, they saw me waiting and asked to give me a ride. I was embarrassed. I was downtown. They gave me a ride and we were friends ever since. They took me to Inglewood, so that’s how that relationship started.”

#2: Holding Each Other Down Isn’t Easy, But It’s Worth It

Both Tia and Cory have been honest about how they met, his humble beginnings and her acceptance. If that’s not love, what is?!

#3: Being Patient Has Its Perks

“We weren’t physical, we didn’t do anything for a while to make sure this was something special and this was something real,” the actress shared. “That’s what we did. And also my husband…we courted each other for about a year. We didn’t go on dates with just him and I, there were other people around. We waited a year to kiss. That’s basically what I did.”

#4: Having Fun Means Trying New Things

Tia suffers from endometriosis so she changed her diet to address her pains. Cory was totally on board and their son Cree enjoys healthy eating too!

#6: Don’t Be Afraid To Go Against The Norm

“We don’t put gender roles on our marriage and our relationship. If I’m working a lot and Cory’s home, he will put Cree to bed, and if dishes need to be washed, he will wash them. So it’s not like, ‘Oh, I’m going to wait until my wife gets home and she’s going to be doing all that. I had to take on those responsibilities that a father would do,” she said of doing things with Cree while Cory was away filming. “I was out in the backyard teaching my son how to kick a ball. We don’t put labels on each other…It’s a team effort, and at the end of the day it’s winning and however we get there, that’s what we do.”

Barack And Michelle Obama Go Paddleboarding In The Caribbean

You have to see the photos of the 44th President and Former First Lady getting some relaxation as they paddleboard in the South Pacific.

Sometimes you just need to get away in order to gain perspective.

After spending eight years in the White House, Barack Obama is currently getting lots of new perspective at a resort in French Polynesia, according to local reports.

Since his arrival in Tahiti on March 15, the former president has holed up at luxury resort The Brando, working on his memoirs for the past month. Michelle Obama flew out to join him over the weekend.

The couple, staying true to their fitness routines, spent Sunday in the island’s lagoon. The former president swam in the water while the former first lady got her exercise paddleboarding. They took a small boat out to the lagoon, accompanied by two boats of security personnel.

“True to his reputation, he was very relaxed,” according to local news TNTV.

The luxury resort — located on the island Tetiaroa, about 30 miles from Tahiti — has 35 villas, each with their own strip of private white sand beach and plunge pool. It was once used as a retreat for chiefs and kings of Tahiti until Marlon Brando purchased the island in 1967. It has since become an eco-friendly resort that also supports research and conservation initiatives.

The resort features many opportunities for visitors to take advantage of surrounding nature including a sea turtle sanctuary, coral reefs for snorkeling and deep-sea fishing.

But that doesn’t mean that Obama is shutting himself off from what’s happening in America. Inside the villas are decked out with a media room and wifi to stay connected to the outside world.

The all-inclusive resort starts at $2,700 per night for a one-room villa.

Ever since leaving the White House, Obama has been on a tour of warmer climates. Immediately following the January 20 inauguration, he went down to Palm Springs for golf. Afterwards he spent time kitesurfing on Richard Branson’s private island in the British Virgin Islands. Post-presidency stops have also included New York City and Hawaii.

The Obamas are expected to leave the resort by the end of the week.

Everything We Know About Mel B’s Troubling Divorce

The former Spice Girl and her husband Stephen Belafonte, who allegedly abused her, are in the middle of a nasty divorce battle.

Singer Mel B’s 10 year marriage to Stephen Belafonte is coming to an end and the accusations behind their demise are troubling to say the least.

They tied the knot in 2007, renewed their vows in 2008 and then welcomed their only child together, daughter, Madison, in 2011. The former Spice Girl and her soon-to-be-ex have had their ups and downs, including claims of domestic violence and infidelity.

They announced their divorce in early April, with the 41-year-old claiming her ex was extremely “abusive, hostile and violent,” according to Page Six.

Here is everything we know about their crumbling marriage:

1. He was once the the only man she ever trusted. 

In 2009, shortly after Mel B, born Melanie Brown, split with ex Eddie Murphy, Belafonte swept the singer off her feet and she said that he was the “beginning and end” of who she is.

“He’s the first man I’ve ever trusted,” she once told Hello Magazine. “At the time, I was vulnerable. I was giving birth as a single mother, my self-esteem was very low, and my hormones were out of balance due to the pregnancy.’’

She said that meeting Belafonte was unexpected and he appeared like an angel, seemingly saving her from herself and proposed after a short courtship.

2. The alleged abuse started shortly after their marriage.

In 2007, the singer claims that their marital bliss was cut short after her new groom “placed both hands around her neck, began choking her and slammed her down onto the hardwood floors.”

3. Belafonte allegedly attacked her after a jealous rage.

While filming for the X Factor Australia, Brown alleges that Belafonte flew into a jealous rage after seeing the singer film a segment with Usher.

“On the evening of the taping, [Stephen] flew into a rage claiming that I had been flirting with Usher all day.” According to documents reported by TMZ, at the time, Belafonte punched Brown with a closed fist and split her lip. “I asked [Stephen] how I was supposed to work with a swollen lip, and he told me that I should have thought of that before I decided I wanted to ‘flirt with and f***’ Usher.”

 

4. In 2014, Belafonte allegedly left her to die after a suicide attempt.

Brown says there is a reason she had to pull out of The X Factor finale, a UK reality series on which she appears as a judge. Court documents say that the singer attempted to overdose on aspirin after “a moment of emotional and physical exhaustion.” After feeling regret, she tried to phone the authorities for help but the producer locked her in a bedroom with no access to a phone and telling her to “die b—h.”

5. She claims he impregnanted their nanny.

Their rollercoaster marriage wasn’t exempt from fidelity. Brown says that Belafonte–whose real name is Stephen Stansbury–impregnanted their German nanny Lorraine, forced the 26-year-old to get an abortion in 2014 and used Brown’s money to pay her excessive amounts of money for her nanny dutties during her seven year employment.

“(He) would degrade me in front of her by comparing me to Lorraine, telling me how much younger and better looking she was.” she detailed. “I later discovered that (he) was having sex with Lorraine and was paying her inordinate amounts of money. Over the course of some three years, I recently learned that (he) paid Lorraine in excess of $300,000 for alleged nanny services.”

Brown also alleges that her ex tried to sexually blackmail her and requested threesomes and other sexual acts.

6. She almost didn’t make it to her father’s deathbed.

On Instagram, the singer revealed that her father lost his five year battle with multiple myeloma cancer in March. In court documents, she claims that Belafonte tried to derail her travel plans to the UK by hiding her passport so she couldn’t say her goodbyes to her dying dad.

“If he’s going to die, he’s going to die,” the papers claim he said. Belafonte told Brown to “suck it up,” before she finally made it to a Yorkshire hospital to be by her father’s side with her sister Danielle.

7. Me’s sister Danielle says her former brother-in-law attempted to keep the singer from her family.

Mel’s only sibling took to Instagram to say that Belafonte is a, “sorry excuse for a man.”

@stephenthinks11 8 years of abusive calls me and my mum have had stating we would never see Melanie again.I am laughing and celebrating as you were wrong.you are a sorry excuse of a man !! To the left to the left everything you own in the box to the left I hope you Lorraine Giles and Michael Bleu go to jail and rot in hell !!”

Belafonte’s lawyers have claimed that all of Brown’s claims are unfounded and outrageous and released a statement that Brown has created a completely “false depiction of [their] marriage.”

“What matters most to Mr. Belafonte is the safety and well-being of his daughters and step-daughters,” the statement reads. “It’s a shame that Ms. Brown elected not to proceed in a respectful and amicable fashion in this very private matter. In due course, Mr. Belafonte will be filing his response to the outrageous and unfounded allegations made by Ms. Brown, which allegations he vehemently denies.”

The statement goes on to say, “when the Court determines the truth, it will become clear that this entire charade was nothing more than a smear campaign intended to cover up Ms. Brown’s own conduct during the marriage in light of her current involvement with a family television show, and in an effort to unfairly gain leverage both financially and with respect to custody of the children,” and “When the degree to which Ms. Brown has gone to create a false depiction of her marriage to Mr. Belafonte is uncovered, real victims and survivors of domestic violence and sexual abuse will be understandably offended, angry and upset. Mr. Belafonte is confident that the truth will come out when he has his day in court at which time he looks forward to being reunited with his children. In the meantime, Mr. Belafonte requests that he and his children be given the space they deserve during this challenging time.”

Beyoncé Trades in Coachella Prep for Bora Bora Babymoon with Jay Z

Jay and Bey are living fabulously.

She was supposed to be headlining the Coachella Music and Arts Festival this weekend, but had to postpone her gig until 2018 when she revealed she and husband Jay Z were expecting twins.

So how did Beyoncé spend the time she would have spent rehearsing? On a babymoon in Bora Bora, naturally!

A source confirms to PEOPLE that the couple recently spent a sun-soaked vacation on the white-sand beaches and emerald waters in the French Polynesian island — likely to be the last before 5-year-old daughter Blue Ivy‘s new siblings arrive.

The couple’s trip came after the 35-year-old singer and her husband, 47, celebrated their 9-year wedding anniversary — an occasion Beyoncé marked with a series of candid social media posts and the release of a new video for her song, “Die with You.”

Beyoncé and Jay Z began dating in 2001, though they kept their relationship quiet for years at first. Their 2008 wedding was also a top-secret, super-intimate affair.

“It was a very emotional wedding — lots of crying — and really very spiritual,” a source told PEOPLE at the time of the soirée, held at the rapper’s 13,500-sq.-ft. Manhattan penthouse and decorated with 70,000 dendrobium orchids flown in from Thailand.

The “Crazy in Love” songstress later opened up about their nuptials and their relationship leading up to the big day.

“There was no rush — no one expected me to run off and get married,” she told Seventeen. “I really don’t believe that you will love the same thing when you’re 20 as you do at 30. So that was my rule: Before the age of 25, I would never get married. I feel like you have to get to know yourself, know what you want, spend some time by yourself, and be proud of who you are before you can share that with someone else.”

Since then they’ve gone on to become one of Hollywood’s biggest power couples and a constant source of #RelationshipGoals — as evidenced by some of the incredible family video Beyoncé has been sharing in the past week.

Now, Beyoncé can focus on taking it easy — something doctors advised her to do when considering her 2017 Coachella set.

“Following the advice of her doctors to keep a less rigorous schedule in the coming months, Beyoncé has made the decision to forgo performing at the 2017 Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival,” Coachella promoter Goldenvoice and Parkwood Entertainment said in a joint statement in February. “However, Goldenvoice and Parkwood are pleased to confirm that she will be a headliner at the 2018 festival. Thank you for your understanding.”

While the Beyhive were certainly disappointed, Lady Gaga‘s Little Monsters were stoked when the 31-year-old singer announced she’d be replacing Queen Bey as the top Coachella headliner.

“Let’s party in the desert!” Mother Monster wrote on Twitter.

Ever since 1999, celebrities have been venturing out to Indio, California for a weekend of good music, even better parties and top-notch fashion.

This years festivities also include performances by Radiohead, Kendrick Lamar, Lorde, Bon Iver, Future, DJ Khaled and more. Those unable to afford the steep ticket price can live stream select performances from the festival on YouTube.

Say It Isn’t So! La La and Carmelo Anthony Are Separated

“I can just be a better best friend than a husband,” he said before adding, “There will people, places and things that help me get there and there will be people, places and things that will distract me deter me [from getting there] so, you know, it just seems to me that marriage and what marriage means and what marriage does it’s just one of those things that just distracts me and deter me.
