Vanessa Hudgens marries pro baseball player Cole Tucker in Mexico, reports say

People
Vanessa Hudgens

Vanessa Hudgens and professional baseball player Cole Tucker got married over the weekend in Mexico, according to multiple reports.

Hudgens, 34, and Tucker were both spotted in Tulum, and Hudgens’ longtime agent posted on Instagram congratulating her on the marriage, Colorado sports website DNVR reported.

Tucker, 27, played last season for the Colorado Rockies. He and Hudgens revealed their engagement in February.

The two tied the knot on Saturday, sources told People magazine. A photo of Hudgens in a white dress on the beach began circulating Sunday on social media.

Additionally, Tucker’s brother Carson and Hudgens’ “High School Musical” co-star Monique Coleman shared Instagram posts from Tulum.

After Hudgens decided to end her relationship with Austin Butler and go her own way at the beginning of 2020, she met Tucker a few months later. They were first spotted together in November of that year.

The “Spring Breakers” star said she met her future husband on a Zoom meditation call.

“I get on the Zoom, and I’m like, ‘Who is that?'” she told Drew Barrymore in May 2021. “I found him, and we started talking.”

The duo announced their fabulous future together in February 2023, when multiple outlets reported that they were engaged. In October, Hudgens shared photos of her star-filled bachelorette party in Aspen, Colorado.

While Tucker has bounced around the major and minor leagues, Hudgens has followed him from Pittsburgh to Reno to Denver, and the couple have shared many cute moments on Instagram.

After spending the 2023 season with the Rockies, Tucker was released and became a free agent. At least, on the baseball field.

David Lynch

David Lynch and his wife Emily Stofle are splitting up after 14 years of marriage — Stofle filed for divorce on Friday.

Lynch, an acclaimed director, responsible for the TV series “Twin Peaks” and the movies “Mulholland Drive” and “Eraserhead,” does not appear to be in an amicable situation with his estranged wife, reports TMZ.

Sofle, 46, seeks sole legal and physical custody of their 11-year-old daughter, allowing Lynch only visitation rights.

With no evidence of the couple having a prenup, she’s also requesting spousal support and attorney’s fees from the 77-year-old director.

Stofle, who is Lynch’s fourth wife, met him when she appeared in his 2006 film “Inland Empire.” She later appeared in his 2017 Showtime revival of “Twin Peaks.”

In 2012, the couple welcomed their only child together, when Lynch was 66.

The pair released a statement during Stofle’s pregnancy that read: “The couple are thrilled at the news and looking forward to meeting their first child together.”

Lynch has one adult child from each of his first three marriages.

In a 2018 interview with The Guardian, Lynch said his tendency to prioritize his work made it difficult to be a good husband and father. “You gotta be selfish. And it’s a terrible thing, he said. “I never really wanted to get married, never really wanted to have children. One thing leads to another and there it is.”

“I did what I had to do,” he said of his home life. “There could have been more work done. There are always so many interruptions.”

Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift didn’t just enchant Spotify as its top artist of 2023, but she’s also to track to earn more than $100 million in royalties from the streaming service this year.

The “Enchanted” singer, 33, will take home that gorgeous figure after hitting 26.1 billion streams around the world since Jan. 1, People confirms.

The massive payday only adds to her ever-growing net worth, which recently hit billionaire status thanks to her record-smashing Eras Tour and theatrical release of her concert film.

News of Swift securing No. 1 on Spotify — and dethroning Bad Bunny after a three-year reign — was revealed earlier this week as part of the platform’s year-end Spotify Wrapped.

In response to the news, Swift took to social media to thank her fans for their undying support.

“I just wanted to say to anyone who listened to my music this year, anywhere in the world, thank you,” she wrote. “Getting named Spotify’s Global Top Artist in 2023 is truly the best birthday/holiday gift you could’ve given me.”

As an added thank you, she announced the release of her song “You’re Losing Me (From The Vault)” on streaming services everywhere.

Two days earlier, Swift treated fans to another special surprise, revealing that her Eras Tour concert film will be made available to rent on demand right on time for her birthday — Dec. 13. The extended streaming version will also feature a trio of songs left out of the theatrical release.
