Everything We Know About Khloé Kardashian's Romance with Tristan Thompson (So Far)

Everything We Know About Khloé Kardashian's Romance with Tristan Thompson (So Far)

by Julia Emmanuele @ PEOPLE.com

After a few love false starts, Khloé Kardashian finally has her Prince Charming – NBA player Tristan Thompson.

With the announcement on Tuesday that the couple are going to be parents, it’s time to take a look back to where it all began.

HE’S VERY MUCH HER TYPE
From day one it was clear that the twenty-six-year-old Thompson had the sporting skills that in the past turned the reality’s star head. Thompson already has an impressive NBA career under his belt. Originally from Canada, he was drafted by the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2011, and helped the team win its first NBA Championship in June. He also played for the Canadian national team this summer, although they didn’t qualify for the Olympics.

THEIR LOVE WENT GLOBAL EARLY
A week after first being spotted out together in September 2016, the two celebrated Labor Day weekend together in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. They were photographed fitting in some R&R on the beaches, but …

BUT THEY WERE TAKING THINGS SLOWLY – AT FIRST
Despite their tropical vacation, a source told PEOPLE at the time that they were a “mini-thing. They like each other and are hanging out.”

WE’RE NOT TOTALLY SURE WHEN IT STARTED …
It turns out that Thompson and Kardashian’s “mini-thing” has been going on since before their 2016 Labor Day getaway. “Khloé and Tristan have been seeing each other for a little bit,” a source told PEOPLE at the time. “He’s a really nice, good guy, and she seems very happy with him.”

… BUT HE QUICKLY EARNED KRIS JENNER’S SEAL OF APPROVAL
Looks like Khloé isn’t the only Kardashian that Thompson has won over: The reality star posted this super-cuddly photo on her Snapchat account, featuring a grinning Jenner. (And if Kris approves, then we do, too!)

THEY’RE ALL ABOUT THE PDA
They may have been keeping it casual in the fall, but these two were never shy about showing off how into each other they were from the start. In fact, things got very steamy when they attended Drake’s concert in L.A. in September, where they were spotted dancing and kissing in the audience.

HE GETS ALONG WITH HER FRIENDS, TOO
Everyone knows that all new relationships live or die by the best friend test — and luckily, it looks like Thompson has passed with flying colors. He and Kardashian were spotted out with her best friend, Malika Haqq, in September in West Hollywood, where the trio took in a comedy show.

In October, Haqq and her sister, Khadijah, gushed about Kardashian’s new love to PEOPLE. “He’s really nice to her,” Malika said. “He’s the coolest guy in the world — and you know, Khloé’s always loved basketball.”

THEIR RELATIONSHIP IS FILLED WITH ‘JOY AND LAUGHTER’
Their slow relationship quickly sped up to serious town as, just a month later, things between the two had taken a more serious turn. “I think — you know what, I think it’s the feeling. You know how people say it’s the look? It’s really cliché, but it just looks really good,” Malika told PEOPLE exclusively about Kardashian’s new relationship.

Her sister, Khadijah, added: “Not only do they look really good, I think it’s really special to find two people that there’s an element of joy and laughter that all of us are supposed to attain in relationships. And I don’t mean just male and female, but the fact that you can find that best friend aspect in your partner, that’s what it’s obviously about.”

“And hard to find,” added Malika. “So, it’s nice to watch.”

THEY HAVE A LOT IN COMMON
“You know, they’re both very giving and very kind,” Malika told PEOPLE. “They take great care of their friends and their families. They love to enjoy themselves. They both work very hard. They have a lot of things in common, and they’re extremely supportive.”

“And when they’re together, they have fun,” Khadijah chimed in.

SHE’S FOLLOWING HER HEART
The Haqq sisters told PEOPLE that they just want their best friend to be happy — and it seems as if Thompson is making her very happy indeed. “I think Khloé is really smart, in general, when it comes to relationships,” said Malika. “I think the stigma now is that she rushes, because she had rushed into her marriage, but she’s a lover.”

“She’s going to follow her heart always,” said Khadijah.

“And when you love genuinely, you get what you’re supposed to get out of that,” added Malika. “So, I think she’s just being smart, but I think she’s trusting love.”

THEY’VE ALREADY GOT MATCHING JEWELRY
When you’re a Kardashian, there’s no better way to confirm that your new relationship is going strong than by showcasing your matching bling on Instagram. After flying out to Cleveland to watch Thompson receive his 2016 Cavaliers NBA Championship ring in October last year, Kardashian posted a photo of Thompson’s new bling … along with her own hand, which was sporting a stack of diamond-encrusted rings. And just to see the his-and-hers theme through, she accessorized them with a red-and-gold-patterned Cavaliers ring.

THEY’VE MADE IT INSTAGRAM OFFICIALJust a few days after teasing fans with a picture of their matching rings, Kardashian finally made things Instagram official by posting a photo of the pair gazing deeply into each other’s eyes at a Halloween party. Kardashian, who was dressed as the X-Men character Storm, simply captioned the photo of her and her new beau (as Black Panther) with a heart emoji. And on the off-chance that you didn’t quite pick up on the meaning of that caption, Kardashian also posted quite a few steamy Snapchats of the couple, including one of them dancing and one of them making out in the middle of the party.

As we all know, once couples costumes are involved, things are definitely very serious.

THEY SPENT THE HOLIDAYS TOGETHERThe next big step in any relationship (after matching outfits, obviously) is spending the holidays together. In November, Kardashian flew out to Cleveland in order to support Thompson at the Turkey Drive that he and teammate J.R. Smith hosted in order to give food to underprivileged families at the Greater Friendship Baptist Church.

Two months later, the happy couple rang in 2017 together, and Kardashian posted two very steamy photos of her and her beau partying the night away — and showing plenty of PDA in the process.

 

 

Around that time, a source close to the Kardashians told PEOPLE that the couple “are insanely happy and in love,” and added, “It’s a healthy relationship and they’re very serious about each other.”

DROPPING THE “L WORLD”In January, Kardashian wrote in a post on her website and app about how compatible she and Thompson are, based on their astrological signs. “A love match between a Cancer and a Pisces is a positive meeting of spirits,” the reading revealed. “Both signs are basically tolerant and sympathetic, and Pisces is easily energized by Cancer’s ideas.” In another post, she wrote about how peaceful she felt in her new relationship: “It’s such a great feeling that I have my happy back! It’s from a genuine place and the most peaceful place I’ve been in for longer than I can even remember.”

“I think when you’re in love you definitely feel happy and healthy too,” Kardashian continued. “I like that my relationship is very normal and doesn’t need to be so publicized all the time.”

In addition to referring to the Cavaliers star as “my love” on her Instagram, Kardashian gushed about Thompson during a January appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden. “I feel like I’m spotting something different about you — this time you might be glowing!” said Corden, 38, hinting at the reality star’s romance. “You seem like somebody who may have found love recently?”

“I have!” said Kardashian, all smiles. “I am, I’m very happy. It’s going good. We use the L word!”

All jokes, aside, a source confirmed to PEOPLE later that month that things were very serious between the two. “She spends more time with Tristan in Cleveland than in L.A,” the source revealed. “She of course thinking about the future. She hopes their relationship will have a future. Tristan makes her very happy.” 

THEY MADE THEOR LOVE KUWTK OFFICIAL, TOO

In March, things became even more serious for Thompson, who appeared on the season 13 premiere of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, alongside his ladylove. However, during the episode, Kardashian attempted to shield her love from her family — in order to keep big sister, Kim, from finding out all the details. “So, I see pictures of Khloé with some NBA player, and even though I know not to believe everything on the internet, Khloé and a NBA player do go hand-in-hand,” Kim said on the show. “It’s my sister. Of course, I want to know who she’s hooking up with.”

“Kim’s my sister. I’m obviously going to tell her eventually,” Kardashian explained, as to why she wanted to keep things from her family. “But it’s fun to torture her. She’s tortured me my entire life, so I feel like this is the perfect time to drag this out as long as I possibly can.”

Eventually, Kardashian let her guard down and invited Thompson to accompany the family to Kanye West’s concert, knowing full well that her family would all be there — and that Kim would finally get her answers. Luckily, it seems like as long as Kardashian is happy, so are her sisters.

“I knew she was messing with me, but I’m just happy that she’s having a good time and starting a new relationship,” Kim, happy and satisfied, told the cameras. “He’s a little young, but I’m excited to tell Jonathan and, like, a couple of my friends!”

FROM COINAGE: The Lavish Lifestyle of the Kardashian Kids

SHE WANTS TO MARRY HIM — AND KNEW SHE WANTED TO START A FAMILY TOGETHER 

Kardashian opened up in the April 13 issue of ES magazine, sharing that she’d say “yes” if Thompson proposed — and that they’d talked about having a family.

“He is a father, and I know for a fact that he would be an impeccable father,” she said, noting that he and ex Jordan Craig welcomed a child in December. The Revenge Body star also sees kids in her future, although she doesn’t feel a big rush to make it happen. “I definitely want to be a mom. But I don’t put the pressure on it. It’s not like, ‘The clock is ticking,’ ” she said. “I feel in my soul it will happen.”

THEY EMBARK ON COOKING ADVENTURES

Another benefit of dating the NBA star? The reality star is coming out of her comfort zone. Kardashian cooked kidney for the first time in June with her boyfriend, and for someone that doesn’t eat meat, it was a harrowing experience.

“So when you are in love with someone that’s Jamaican, you do very strange things, and I’m about to make kidney for the first time,” Kardashian is heard saying on her Snapchat, where she documented every step of the unique meal’s prep.

THE KARDASHIAN CREW ARE ALL FANS

Kris and Kourtney Kardashian as well as her kids, Mason, 7, and Penelope Disick, 4, were front and center supporting Khloé’s boyfriend of nearly one year. The Kardashian sisters were twinning, wearing leather leggings and proudly wearing Thompson’s gold #13 jerseys. Even Penelope donned Cavaliers colors in a yellow shirt. Momager Kris wore a bedazzled black and white sweater with black pants.

THEY’RE HOUSE HUNTING TOGETHER

A source told PEOPLE that Kardashian is house hunting with the 26-year-old Cleveland Cavaliers player. According to the source, they’re not moving in together officially just yet, but Thompson (who has a home in Cleveland) is looking to rent a place in Los Angeles. “They live at Khloé’s Calabasas house right now,” said the source, explaining that Thompson is hoping to land a home closer to the downtown area. “He thinks the drive from Calabasas to L.A. is too far every day,” says the source. “When they go out in L.A., they want a second house that’s closer.”

As for Kardashian? She’s “just the happiest,” said the source close to the star. “She loves spending every day with Tristan.”

THEY JOIN KIM & KANYE ON ‘QUICK TRIPS’ TOGETHER

Kim Kardashian West and Khloé headed to the northern California city on July 22 with their respective loves, Kanye West and Tristan Thompson, and were sure to document the moments before the trip on Snapchat. “Quick Trip to San Fran,” Kardashian West wrote on a video of the jet. She showed off the red carpet leading to the aircraft’s stairs.

KHLOÉ IS IN NO RUSH TO GET MARRIED

“I’m in the best relationship I’ve ever been in and it doesn’t take a ring for me to feel that way,” Kardashian told YOU magazine, gushing about her beau while expressing that she’s happy with her relationship as-is. “I believe in marriage and I want to be married again one day but I don’t have a time frame. Why do people think that marriage equates to happiness? There are a lot of people in unhealthy marriages.”

… AND NOW THEY’RE EXPECTING!

Khloé is the third Kardashian-Jenner sibling to be expecting a child.

The baby will be the first child for Khloé. Thompson, 26, welcomed a son named Prince Oliver with his ex-girlfriend Jordan Craig in December 2016.

“Yes, Khloe and Tristan are expecting and they are absolutely thrilled,” a source tells PEOPLE. “This isn’t something they were in a rush to announce to the whole world, and it’s only been in just the past week or so that they’ve felt comfortable telling most of their inner circle. Things were complicated a bit by Kylie’s announcement as they don’t want to be seen as intruding on that moment for her but it is now reaching a point where Khloe doesn’t want to be openly lying to people, and just staying quiet isn’t going to work anymore.” 

Adding, “This is something Khloe has wanted for years and years and yet it’s more than that: she didn’t want it unless she was in the right relationship for it. She never let it happen with Lamar, intentionally, and she never considered it with James or French or anyone else she has seen. But this is such a wonderful moment for her: not only is she going to be a mother, she is going to be raising a child with a man she truly loves. Everyone is over the moon for them both.”

Kardashian’s pregnancy comes days after sources confirmed to PEOPLE on Friday that Kylie Jenner is expecting a baby girl with her boyfriend Travis Scott. She is due in February.

Kim and husband Kanye West are expecting their third child after hiring a surrogate to help them expand their family.

News of Khloé’s first baby on the way comes months after she admitted on the show’s season 13 finale — following news that her uterus looked normal after an initial fertility scare leading her to cease taking birth control — that she and her boyfriend have “definitely about starting a family” together.

18 Best Mismatched Nail Art Manicures

by Zel @ Nail Design Ideaz

NailDesigners, have you ever heard of mismatched nail art? Most nail designs work on the principle of revolving around one repeating color or design. For example, nude nails are nails uniformly painted in sheer skin-toned colors while striped nails show off duplicate vertical or horizontal patters. Some other designs, however, match complementary colors. For example, […]

Florida Couple Who Opened Their Mansion to 70 Foster Kids During Irma Continues to Help: ‘We’re Not Stopping’

Florida Couple Who Opened Their Mansion to 70 Foster Kids During Irma Continues to Help: ‘We’re Not Stopping’

by Caitlin Keating @ PEOPLE.com

A Florida couple who opened their 27,000-square-foot mansion in Boca Raton, Florida, to 70 foster children who had to evacuate during Hurricane Irma, says they have no plans to stop helping anytime soon.

“These kids needed us — and still do,” Jennifer Bell tells PEOPLE. “Even though the hurricane is over, these kids still live in a hurricane.”

When Hurricane Irma hit Florida, Jennifer and her husband, entrepreneur Marc Bell, received a call from SOS Children’s Villages letting them know that the kids — who are all orphans — had to leave their temporary shelter and sleep in cars. Marc, a former executive of Penthouse, is on the board of the children’s shelter.

“Without hesitation we said, ‘Bring them here, we’ll figure it out,’ ” says the mother of three. “They all came over and all they wanted was a shower. They hadn’t eaten and they were all very sleep-deprived.”

What was supposed to be a few-hour visit ended up turning into three days.

While most of the couple’s friends evacuated Florida ahead of the storm, the few who stuck around came over to help — and the one pizzeria that stayed open, delivered pizza.

The kids were scattered throughout the large 9-bedroom, 17-bathroom house and were kept entertained by arts and crafts and even a balloon artist hired by the couple for the younger children.

“We did birthdays for all of the kids because some had birthdays that week,” says Jennifer. “On the last night there was this one little boy and I said, ‘Make a wish.’ He pulled me down and he said, ‘I just want my mommy to come home.’ ”

After the children returned to SOS Children’s Villages, the couple continued to help by creating a GoFundMe page for them. And Jennifer also planned a fun surprise for the kids.

“The little girls wanted these Hello Kitty cars,” she says. “I told my girlfriends and none of them really responded to me. The  hurricane was over, so I said, ‘Not only do I want you to buy one of these cars, I want you to all come with me to the village.’ ”

“It’s just a matter of getting people out of their bubble to look at other kids and see what they’re actually going through,” she adds.

On Saturday night, Jennifer and a few friends surprised the kids with their new toy cars.

“All of the sudden you see all of these young kids all coming out on the cars driving with such joy in their faces,” she says. “The surprise was amazing. We also dropped of a lot of Sesame Street stuff and books.”

And a few of her friends have already started to fill out their volunteering mentor forms so they can continue to help the organization as well.

“I think it made us smile more than it made the kids smile,” she says. “Anyone can write a check, but when you go the Village, you see it. It touched their hearts to see the kids so happy.”

Jennifer isn’t slowing down anytime soon. In the next week, she’s hosting an ice cream party at her house for the girls and a pool party because the children weren’t able to swim when they stayed at their house. She’s also gathering used Xboxes and Wii’s for the older children.

“What they want is for me to say, ‘I’m coming on Saturday,’ and I show up on Saturday. They want to see the faces that helped them during the hurricane come back, ” she says. “We’re not stopping. I’ve made it my mission to be there for them. We won’t give up on them.”

Watch The Moment Cardi B Found Out She Reached No. 1

Watch The Moment Cardi B Found Out She Reached No. 1

by Thatiana Diaz @ PEOPLE.com

Brought to you by the editors of People en Español.

Cardi B made history yesterday as the first female rapper to top the Billboard Hot 100 chart without a featured act on her single “Bodak Yellow.” Lauryn Hill was the first female rapper to reach the top spot with 1998’s “Doo Wop (That Thing).”

Hours after the announcement was made, Cardi shared the moment she found out she topped the chart. In the video, she jumps up from her couch frantically and reads the tweet announcing her song’s ascent. She then begins cheekily belting out Taylor Swift’s “Look What You Made Me Do,” which her single dethroned.

In another sweet video, Cardi cries happy tears in front of her gold plaque, which commemorates her single selling 500,000 copies.

On Monday afternoon, immediately following the announcement, Atlantic Records celebrated the rapper’s accomplishment with a toast and Louboutin shoe cake inspired by her song lyrics, “red bottoms… bloody shoes.”

“I never asked them. They just did it voluntarily. Every day harassing their followers like, ‘Make sure you download and stream ‘Bodak Yellow’ — and look what you made me do,” she said to her family, friends and fans in a not-so-subtle reference to T. Swift’s latest single.

Many celebrities joined in on the celebration, congratulating Cardi on social media, including label-mate Missy Elliot, fellow female rapper Nicki Minaj and designer Christian Siriano. “Congratulations to my love @iamcardib for breaking records today! Princess moment now in full swing,” Siriano wrote on Instagram. Minaj seconded Siriano’s sentiments, tweeting: “Congratulations to a fellow NEW YAWKA on a RECORD BREAKING achievement. Bardi, this is the only thing that matters!!! Enjoy it.”

How to Interpret Autistic Body Language

by @ How to of the Day

"Autistic body language" is somewhat of a misnomer—every autistic person is unique, so it is difficult to make generalizations about autistic people as a whole. This article discusses common patterns and misconceptions. When applying this information, be sure to consider your autistic loved one as an individual, and remember that each step won't apply to each person.

Nate Berkus Shares How His Entertaining Style Has Changed Since Welcoming Daughter Poppy

Nate Berkus Shares How His Entertaining Style Has Changed Since Welcoming Daughter Poppy

by Megan Stein @ PEOPLE.com

Nate Berkus is the expert on all things party planning. But since becoming a father to one-year-old daughter, Poppy, the designer’s go-to entertaining style has had a few changes.

“We entertain around her nap schedule now,” Berkus, artistic advisor for LG Studio, told PEOPLE at a breakfast on June 8, which celebrated the sleek line of high-end appliances he helped design.

RELATED: WATCH: Jessie James Decker Gives a Tour of Her Lovely Florida Beach House

But when Poppy isn’t snoozing, Berkus, 44, and husband Jeremiah Brent, 31, keep her busy with poolside play dates that are a far cry from a formal outdoor gathering.

“Our home is now filled with blow up toys from Target in the pool as opposed to margaritas,” Berkus said.

And the menu planning is even simpler.

“We throw food on the barbecue, we’ve actually even had a taco truck come once,” Berkus said. “We do put out snacks for the little ones, and they sit and throw them in the pool.”

Although the guest list has been tweaked to include Poppy’s younger crowd, the design-savvy couple couldn’t be happier with their new scene.

Milo Ventimiglia Talks Jack's Death on This Is Us: 'The Answer Is Going to Be Coming Soon'

Milo Ventimiglia Talks Jack's Death on This Is Us: 'The Answer Is Going to Be Coming Soon'

by Brittany Talarico @ PEOPLE.com

Milo Ventimiglia knows that when he does an interview for This Is Us, he’s going to get asked one question every time: How does Jack die? And when we caught up with the actor at Timex’s fall collection launch in NYC on Monday, we asked him to estimate how many times he’s been asked that very question.

“Well into one thousand times right now — maybe even a couple of thousand,” Ventimiglia told PEOPLE. “I’ve never made up anything outlandish.”

The show returns for season 2 on Sept. 26, and Ventimiglia confirms the wait to learn Jack Pearson’s fate is almost over.

“I think the answer is going to be coming soon.”

The 40-year-old actor said filming season 2 has been just as rewarding as season one.

“When we were down for our hiatus every day I couldn’t wait to get back on set to see my friends, and see my family,” he shared. “The experience of going back has been positive. It’s very rare in what I do for a living to be part of something that feels so right when you’re in it. I’m happy to be back at work and I’m excited for the audience to start watching.”

Ventimiglia credits everyone involved in the production of This Is Us for making the set feel like home.

“The writing on this show is so incredible,” he shared. “Not only do we have an amazing cast and an amazing production crew, but the experience of making it is so great. I feel like I’m with friends. I feel like I’m with family.”

The actor, who was on hand to fête the new fall collection of Timex watches at a launch party in New York City Monday, said he has yet to swipe anything for Jack’s closet. And for good reason — he’s not ready to say goodbye to his character — and neither are we.

“I’m sure at a certain point I’ll want something of Jack’s, but right now I’m playing Jack, so I’ll leave it at work,” he said.

When he’s not playing Jack, he’s very much of a jeans and boots guy, wearing a denim-on-denim look to the Timex event. He reflected on buying his first watch from the brand when he was a teen.

“My first Timex watch was called an ‘easy reader.’ It had an accordion strap. It was the first watch I bought myself when I was 15,” he shared. “I thought It was cool that I could by myself a timepiece – not just a watch, but a timepiece. The more that I understand and learn about Timex, they take into account their history and their heritage. I always appreciate a brand or a person who doesn’t forget about where they came from and their early days. It was a natural fit to come here and host the party.”

But his ‘easy reader’ isn’t the most meaningful watch in his collection. It’s the timepiece his dad gave him.

“I have my father’s watch that he wore in Vietnam that he pulled out of a safe one day, gave it a shake and it still worked,” Ventimiglia said. “I thought, ‘Wow, this survived a war and four to five decades’ and it was very meaningful. It wasn’t of great monetary value, but it mean something to me because it was my father’s watch during a very different time.”

RELATED PHOTOS: 13 Sizzling Hot Pics of Milo Ventimiglia to Hold You Over Until This Is Us Returns

The actor loves incorporating pieces into his wardrobe that have a story behind them.

“The oldest thing in my closet is a navy peacoat that picked up somewhere. It’s ’50s era. I like pieces with history,” he shared. “I don’t have too many of them, but I try to preserve them and make sure I respect the men that wore them. I also have a pair of  World War II boots and every time I put them on I always think about the man who possibly wore these and what he experienced and what he went through.”

How to Care for a Pug

Pugs are a friendly and goofy dog breed that love attention almost as much as people love their folded-up faces. Those folds need special care, though, to keep your pug happy and healthy. Create a consistent routine of meals, play time, and quiet time for your pug, and make sure you provide them with regular fold cleanings, ear cleanings, nail trims, and baths. It can take a little extra work, but with some attention you can care for all of your pug’s unique needs.

Colorado Man Was Allegedly Beaten, Stripped and Locked in a Shipping Container by Uncle

Colorado Man Was Allegedly Beaten, Stripped and Locked in a Shipping Container by Uncle

by Christine Pelisek @ PEOPLE.com

A Colorado man is accused of beating his nephew and keeping him locked in a shipping container for hours, PEOPLE confirms.

Wynn Sichting, 58, was charged last week with seven felony accounts including kidnapping and attempted murder. He has not entered a plea and was released from jail on a $50,000 bond. He is scheduled for a preliminary hearing on October 17.

His lawyer could not be reached for comment.

Sichting was taken into custody after his 21-year-old nephew claimed Sichting repeatedly beat him and locked him in a shipping container after he stopped by his uncle’s house in Jefferson County, according to an arrest warrant affidavit obtained by PEOPLE.

The alleged victim told investigators he had moved out of Sichting’s home after four months on September 5 and had returned to pick up some tools around 3 p.m. on September 11 when, he claimed, Sichting accused him of stealing $3,000.

“ was standing in front of the storage container when Wynn walked toward him,” the affidavit alleges. “Wynn pushed backward toward the storage container and pushed him inside. fell to the floor of the container.”

The nephew told investigators that Wynn allegedly began punching him in the face while he was on the floor.

“ felt Wynn striking him with his fists, elbows, knees, and feet to include both the heel and toe of his tan colored work boots,” the affidavit alleges.

Wynn then allegedly hit him with a “hard wooden blunt object that may have been the leg of a chair or a type of baton,” the affidavit states. “The wooden baton struck on the back side of his forearms as he held them up to protect his head.”

The alleged victim said that Sichting allegedly smashed a mirror on him, causing the glass to cut him.

He told investigators that another man, who has not been charged in connection with the case, stripped him of his shoes and jeans and that Sichting forcibly removed his t-shirt.

• PEOPLE’s special edition True Crime Stories: 35 Real Cases That Inspired the Show Law & Order is on sale now.

The alleged victim — who said he told Sichting that he didn’t steal the money and wanted to go home — told investigators that he was allegedly forced to sign over the title of a 1996 green Toyota he had purchased from Sichting several weeks earlier.

“Wynn told him that the only place he was going was ‘in the ground'” the affidavit states. “Wynn also said many times, ‘I’m going to bury you.’ took this to mean Wynn was going to kill him.”

Investigators said that after about 15 minutes, Sichting allegedly stopped beating his nephew and locked him in the storage container.

The nephew alleged to investigators he fell asleep and was awakened with a kick to his face. He said Sichting allegedly continued to beat him and then “held up a kitchen knife with a green blade and bright green handle.”

“Wynn told , ‘this is what happens to people like you,” the affidavit alleges. “Wynn touched the sharp edge of the blade to left cheek and again told him that he was going to bury him.”

The alleged victim said he was able to escape after Sichting left the container partially open. “Wynn tried to run after but was not fast enough,” the affidavit reads. “ said it was dark out by then so he ran into the woods and eventually made his way to the neighbor’s house where they called the police for him.”

The nephew was later transported to Saint Anthony Central Hospital and treated for his injuries.

Tom Holland and Zendaya Want Your Help to STOMP Out Bullying

Tom Holland and Zendaya Want Your Help to STOMP Out Bullying

by Kara Warner @ PEOPLE.com

Your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man is lending his superpowers to a very good cause.

Tom Holland, Zendaya and his fellow Spider-Man: Homecoming stars have come together in a PSA to support STOMP Out Bullying, an anti-bullying awareness campaign released exclusively to PEOPLE.

In the PSA above, watch Holland, Zendaya and costars Laura Harrier and Jacob Batalon explain their part in helping spread the word about the important “initiative that empowers students to end bullying and change the culture,” says Holland in the video.

The actors also encourage the public to show their support by wearing a blue t-shirt on Monday, Oct. 2, in support of the World Day of Bullying Prevention.

“Inclusion and kindness opens doors and possibilities for everyone,” says Harrier in the video, the launch of which is part of the kick-off to National Bullying Prevention Month in October. Both Harrier and Batalon were on hand to help debut the PSA and surprise students at a New York City high school Tuesday, along with STOMP Out Bullying founder Ross Ellis, who also serves as CEO of the national leading bullying prevention organization for kids and teens in the U.S.

RELATED: Zendaya Praises ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Costar Tom Holland’s Singing Skills

This is an issue that hits close to home for 21-year-old rising star Holland, who revealed to PEOPLE earlier this year that he has first-hand experience with being bullied.

“There was times when I was bullied about dancing and stuff,” he said. “But you couldn’t hit me hard enough to stop me from doing it.”

Holland’s experiences with bullying helped him relate to his superhero alter ego Peter Parker. “I, like Peter, accepted I wasn’t the cool kid at school and just found my group of friends and got on with it,” he said.

Spider-Man: Homecoming is now available digitally and will be released on Blu-ray and DVD October 17.

How to Go to Bed After Watching a Horror Movie

How to Go to Bed After Watching a Horror Movie

by @ How to of the Day

Watching horror movies can sometimes lead to a person feeling frightened and unable to sleep. If you’re frightened or anxious after watching a horror movie, you can face your fears by acknowledging and talking about what frightens you. You can think about your fears logically and work to overcome them. Another thing you can try is to distract yourself from your fears by watching or reading something funny, doing an activity that requires focus, or participating in a calming activity. You can also make yourself and your bedroom as comfortable as possible to help you fall asleep.

Either drawing pencils or charcoal pencils ranging from 2B to 5B and one white charcoal pencil, white conte crayon or white charcoal. You can also use conte crayons. You can often buy a set that includes a range of darkness with an eraser or blending stump. These sets are often more economical than buying separate pencils. If you find a set of charcoal pencils with a blending stump, eraser and sharpener, that’s great and it will take care of the next couple of items!

GOP Lawmaker Says ‘If It Wasn’t Sexist’ He’d Call His Female Colleagues ‘Eye Candy’

GOP Lawmaker Says ‘If It Wasn’t Sexist’ He’d Call His Female Colleagues ‘Eye Candy’

by Tierney McAfee @ PEOPLE.com

Sentences that start with “If it wasn’t sexist, I would…” rarely end well — and the case of Rep. Mark Walker on Tuesday was no exception.

Walker, the chairman of the Republican Study Committee, is under fire for describing the women in his conservative caucus as the group’s “eye candy” during a presentation outside the U.S. Capitol on Tuesday.

“The accomplished men and women of the RSC — and women, if it wasn’t sexist, I would say the RSC eye candy, but we’ll leave that out of the record — are not attention seekers,” Walker said Tuesday as he explained that the group of nearly 160 GOP lawmakers would be taking a more “vocal and visible” role in national debates.

One of the female representatives standing behind Walker chuckled at the remark but two other women did not, according to a video of the moment posted by The Hill.

Walker was quickly censured for his remarks, which critics on Twitter said were, in fact, sexist.

“If it wasn’t sexist, I’d say something sexist. Ah, f–k it I’ll say it anyways,” one Twitter user mocked.

“If it wasn’t so rude, I’d call Mark Walker a moron,” said another.

Some called for the congressman to resign or apologize to his female colleagues.

“Called my Rep. Mark Walker’s office to let him know I didn’t appreciate his sexist comment & advising him to apologize colleagues,” one person tweeted.

Khloe Kardashian Is Pregnant! Revealed Days After Kylie Jenner's Big Baby News

by Melody Chiu, Jen Juneau and Blake Bakkila @ PEOPLE.com

There’s a baby on the way for Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson!

Multiple sources confirm to PEOPLE that the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, 33, and her NBA boyfriend — whom she has been dating since September 2016 — are expecting their first child together.

Khloé is the third Kardashian-Jenner sibling to currently be expecting a child.

Kardashian’s pregnancy comes days after sources confirmed to PEOPLE on Friday that Kylie Jenner is expecting a baby girl with her boyfriend Travis Scott. She is due in February.

Kim Kardashian West and husband Kanye West are expecting their third child after hiring a surrogate to help them expand their family.

The baby will be the first child for Khloé. Thompson, 26, welcomed a son named Prince Oliver with his ex-girlfriend Jordan Craig in December 2016.

“Yes, Khloe and Tristan are expecting and they are absolutely thrilled,” a source tells PEOPLE. “This isn’t something they were in a rush to announce to the whole world, and it’s only been in just the past week or so that they’ve felt comfortable telling most of their inner circle. Things were complicated a bit by Kylie’s announcement as they don’t want to be seen as intruding on that moment for her but it is now reaching a point where Khloe doesn’t want to be openly lying to people, and just staying quiet isn’t going to work anymore.” 

Adding, “This is something Khloe has wanted for years and years and yet it’s more than that: she didn’t want it unless she was in the right relationship for it. She never let it happen with Lamar, intentionally, and she never considered it with James or French or anyone else she has seen. But this is such a wonderful moment for her: not only is she going to be a mother, she is going to be raising a child with a man she truly loves. Everyone is over the moon for them both.”

Reps for Kardashian did not respond to request for comment.

According to another insider close to the family, Kylie and Khloé are due around the same time. “They are looking at it like a unifying experience for them as sisters,” says the insider. “Getting pregnant at the same time was totally unplanned but they are really happy about it.”

News of Khloé’s first baby on the way comes months after she admitted on the show’s season 13 finale — following news that her uterus looked normal after an initial fertility scare leading her to cease taking birth control — that she and her boyfriend have “definitely about starting a family” together.

“He wants to have about five or six kids with me and that’s lovely,” said Kardashian, who initially visited the fertility specialist to see if she could serve as a potential surrogate for sister Kim. “We could start at one and we could grow from there. But now knowing I’m not on birth control is scary. It’s like a really big step.”

Kardashian and Thompson first stepped out together in early September, and have been spending much of their time together since then in Cleveland. Aside from New Year’s Eve, the pair also celebrated Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas together.

The reality star, who rang in 2017 in Miami with the Cleveland Cavaliers player and a group of friends, used Instagram to share a photo of the couple celebrating on New Year’s Eve.

“Happy New Year!!! May you always be surrounded by the love you are deserving of! May Gods blessings continue to rain on us all!” she captioned the snap of Thompson embracing her.

RELATED: Khloé Kardashian Says She Wants to Marry Tristan Thompson and Have His Babies (But No Pressure)

Though the couple isn’t engaged, Kardashian opened up to ES Magazine in April about the possibility of tying the knot with the sports star, admitting she would say yes if he popped the question — and is excited about the prospect of starting her own brood.

“I would love to have a family. We’ve talked about it,” she revealed. “He is a father, and I know for a fact that he would be an impeccable father.”

Added the Revenge Body star at the time, “I definitely want to be a mom. But I don’t put the pressure on it. It’s not like, ‘The clock is ticking.’ I feel in my soul it will happen.”

In the season 13 finale of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kardashian — who has been seen on the show and throughout her and her family’s social media posts as the fun “Aunt KoKo” to her multiple nieces and nephews — admitted she wasn’t sure what her immediate future would look like.

“I am so relieved to know that I am able to get pregnant,” she said in her sit-down. “Now I have so many other things to think about. Do I wanna have my own baby now? I don’t know. I’m at a crossroads.”

RELATED: Everything We Know About Khloé Kardashian’s Romance with Tristan Thompson (So Far)

The duo “are insanely happy and in love,” a source close to Kardashian told PEOPLE exclusively in January. And in a January post on her website, the now-mom-to-be reflected on how peaceful she has felt.

“It’s such a great feeling that I have my happy back! It’s from a genuine place and the most peaceful place I’ve been in for longer than I can even remember,” she wrote.

“I think when you’re in love you definitely feel happy and healthy too,” Kardashian continued. “I like that my relationship is very normal and doesn’t need to be so publicized all the time.”

Chip and Joanna Gaines Share Their Hilarious First Date Story

Chip and Joanna Gaines Share Their Hilarious First Date Story

by Megan Stein @ PEOPLE.com

Chip and Joanna Gaines are the definition of marriage goals, but their relationship didn’t necessarily have a fairytale start.

In the first chapter of The Magnolia Storyreleased as a sneak peek today, the Fixer Upper dream team spills the details of how they met — and it wasn’t exactly love at first sight.

Joanna agreed to go out on a date with Chip after meeting him and his roommate “Hot John” — who she actually tried to approach minutes earlier, but was too shy — in the waiting room of her dad’s auto shop. She had second thoughts, however, after Chip arrived an hour and a half late to pick her up.

RELATED: HGTV Star Joanna Gaines Talks Fixer Upper Fame and Work-Life Balance: ‘Family Is First’

“He didn’t apologize for being late, either. He had so much confidence. I don’t know. I can’t explain it. Only Chip could be an hour and a half late and have no one mad about it,” Joanna writes.

WATCH THIS: HGTV Stars Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri Compete to Make the Better Birdhouse

The chapter continues to describe the timeline of their relationship, which didn’t actually start until months after they first went out, when Chip (in typical guy fashion) finally called Joanna back.

“I’d made a bet with Hot John to see who could hold out the longest before calling our dates back,” Chip writes “I really wanted that fifty dollars from John! That’s the only reason I didn’t call.”

After they went out a second time, the rest was history.

Girl Scout Cookie Baking Mixes to Hit Stores Nationwide

Girl Scout Cookie Baking Mixes to Hit Stores Nationwide

Samoas in cupcake form was a thing we never knew we needed, but now it’s the only thing we can think about.

Pillsbury just unveiled Girl Scout Cookie baking mixes, which are available in Thin Mints and Caramel & Coconut – a.k.a. Samoas – flavors. The four new mixes are for baking cupcakes, brownies and blondies — unfortunately, you won’t be able to make actual Girl Scout Cookies, because that would put a lot of 7-year-olds out of business.

RELATED: Leonardo DiCaprio Eating Girl Scout Cookies at the Oscars Is the Internet’s Best New Meme

“Families can try out their favorite cookie flavors in the form of brownies, cupcakes, and blondies, while they wait for the real thing once a year during Girl Scout Cookie season,” said Girl Scouts of the USA chief revenue officer Barry Horowitz in a statement.

GSC loyalists are, to put it mildly, freaking out.

The mixes, now available nationwide, retail for $3.29 each — almost $2 less than what you’d pay for a box of cookies.
