NEWLY ENGAGED?

In pictures obtained by Page Six, it sees the musician, 45, and actress, 35, put on a loved-up display in London where she was spotted with a sparkly silver band on her left hand over the weekend. It was first reported in March that Mark and Grace were in a relationship with the duo said to have been dating since last year.
Earlier this year, it was claimed that Mark and Grace were an item after they were first linked in September during a cozy dinner date in New York. The relationship comes after Mark split from girlfriend Genevieve Gaunt last year, while Grace became single after divorcing husband Tay Strathairn in April 2020. A source told The Sun in March: 'He is definitely dating Grace. Things have become romantic. Lockdown restrictions have made things more difficult, especially when he has been back in the UK, but they are seeing how it goes and are getting along.'
It was also reported that Mark has already met and won over Grace's famous mother Meryl, who has been married to sculptor Don Gummer since 1978. The source added: 'They seemed to like him, which is a good sign. It would be daunting for any guy to try to charm Meryl Streep.' MailOnline contacted representatives for Mark Ronson and Grace Gummer for comment at the time.
After 11 years together Naomi and Liev announced their split in late 2016 when the news was eclipsed by the more acrimonious breakup of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.
App vows to cover any fines given to tennis stars who snub media
A relaxation app has offered to cover fines handed out to Naomi Osaka and any other tennis players who pull out of Grand Slam media interviews due to mental health.

She added: 'It's not always a cakewalk, as they say in America. But it makes complete sense that it is an absolute priority, because it really matters to the children. You can see how there are so many things that can make a kid feel anxious, and knowing that their parents can be in the same room and joyfully, it means a lot to them.'
On the professional front Liev's upcoming movies include Across The River And Into The Trees which is adapted from a 1950 Ernest Hemmingway novel of the same name that is set in Italy as World War II winds down.
