US tech entrepreneur, Jennifer Arcuri has reportedly admitted having an affair with UK prime minister  Boris Johnson after allegations that he used his position as London mayor to get the businesswoman favourable treatment.

Though the Prime Minister avoided a criminal investigation after the police watchdog found no evidence that he influenced the payment of thousands of pounds of public money to her or secured her participation in foreign trade trips he led, Daily Mail however reported that Arcuri admitted having an affair with Mr Johnson while he was with his then-wife Marina Wheeler.

She said in an interview;

“I think that goes without saying …It’s pretty much out there … But I’m not going to talk about it.”

In the interview in Kentucky where she is visiting family, she also discussed being bombarded by his “avalanches of passion”. When asked if she loved him, she is quoted saying;

“At the time I cared for him very deeply, but I never used the L word. I wouldn’t have recognised being in love. I cared very much about this man and I think that’s resolutely clear. That’s all I want to say.”

Jennifer Arcuri, is a former model turned entrepreneur in the tech world. She began her career as Radio Disney DJ Razzle Dazz at the Walt Disney Company.

She delved into filmmaking and produced and directed short film La Valise in 2008, which was part of the Short Film Showcase at the Cannes Film Festival. She launched a tech career in 2011 after moving to the UK.  She is the founder of Playbox Ltd, a social network for the video tech industry, Innotech Network and Hacker House.

Arcuri is currently married to Matthew Hickey, the co-director of Hacker House, with whom she had a daughter in 2017.

The nature of her relationship to Boris became the subject of public scrutiny in 2019, after it emerged that she had benefited from thousands of pounds in public money, including from the mayor’s promotional agency, London and Partners (L&P).

She was also given coveted places on trade missions to New York and Tel Aviv alongside Johnson, despite failing to meet the criteria for those trips. Her place on the trips was allegedly secured after intervention from the then mayor’s office.

The Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) decided against a criminal investigation, but its 112-page report did conclude that Johnson should have declared an interest, and that this failure could have amounted to a breach of the Greater London assembly’s code of conduct.

Harry Styles has mocked those who trolled his iconic Vogue cover by eating a banana while wearing a frilly suit.

 

The 25-year-old sparked controversy by wearing dresses in his shoot for Vogue.

 

One of those who called him out is right-wing pundit Candace Owens who slammed him for wearing a dress and said it was time to “bring back manly men”.

She tweeted at the time: “There is no society that can survive without strong men.

 

“The East knows this. In the west, the steady feminisation of our men at the same time that Marxism is being taught to our children is not a coincidence. It is an outright attack. Bring back manly men.”

In the post shared to Instagram, the singer wore a powder blue blazer over a white frilled shirt, featuring pleated cuffs, and matching trousers.

 

Harry ate a banana in the picture, shot by Parker Woods for Variety, and captioned it: “Bring back manly men.”

The picture was part of a shoot to accompany Harry’s interview with Variety, in which he also ate a pomegranate and wore a pale pink silk blouse by Gucci and a pearl necklace.

 

In the interview, the former One Direction star addressed his style choices and took pride in his Vogue shoot, saying: “To not wear something because it’s female’ clothing, you shut out a whole world of great clothes.

“And I think what’s exciting about right now is you can wear what you like. It does’t have to be X or Y. Those lines are becoming more and more blurred.”

 

Harry is known for his eclectic and androgynous style, and in his Vogue shoot, he wore skirts and dresses as well as traditionally masculine trousers and shirts.

 

Admitting he always liked dressing up as a child, Harry said: “Clothes are there to have fun with and experiment with and play with. What’s really exciting is that all of these lines are just kind of crumbling away.

“When you take away ‘There’s clothes for men and there’s clothes for women,’ once you remove any barriers, obviously you open up the arena in which you can play. I’ll go in shops sometimes, and I just find myself looking at the women’s clothes thinking they’re amazing.

 

“It’s like anything—anytime you’re putting barriers up in your own life, you’re just limiting yourself. There’s so much joy to be had in playing with clothes. I’ve never really thought too much about what it means—it just becomes this extended part of creating something.”

Reality show star and actress, Bisola Aiyeola has shared her thoughts on having a nuclear family unit as a single mother.

 

In an interview with The Sun, Bisola stated that it’s not that easy having another child and building a new home.

 

She said;

 

“There’s the urge to have that close nuclear family unit and then there’s the reality; it’s not that easy having another child and building a new home. I’ve heard from other people’s experiences too. Somehow, I’ve been able to manage all these years with my daughter. I am proud of her; she’s in secondary school now. I just want to work on giving her the best. I won’t say that I am using torchlight to look for a family now, but if it does happen, I’ll embrace it with all of me. But the reality of it is that, it’s not as beautiful as it sounds.”

Bisola also revealed that the COVID-19 lockdown not only drew her closer to her daughter, but also gave her the privilege to discover her other creative sides.

 

She added;

 

“The sit-at-home situation just made me know my daughter better. We had more fun, cooked together. I also found out that she loves art; she also discovered that herself. She’s kind of finding art interesting, as we did lot of painting together. In fact, there were lots of bonding between my daughter and I, because in the last few years, there have been lots of ups and downs; she’s always going to school. It just brought us together more and that’s one thing I am grateful for.”
