Natalie Portman Shuts Down Disturbing Dating Rumors

Natalie Portman Shuts Down Disturbing Dating Rumors, Like The Queen That She Is

Natalie Portman denies having a relationship as an 18-year-old with 33-year-old musician.


American musician Moby recently alleged in his memoir that he began a relationship with actress Natalie Portman when she was 20 years old. At the time he claims they had a relationship, he would have been 33. In an interview with Bazar, Portman confronts these rumors, saying she was barely 18 when she met Moby. She describes how the situation felt to her at the time.

"My recollection is a much older man being creepy with me when I just had graduated high school," Portman says.

Portman claims their "relationship" was no more than a few get-togethers.

"I was a fan and went to one of his shows when I had just graduated. When we met after the show, he said, "let's be friends." We only hung out a handful of times before I realized that this was an older man who was interested in me in a way that felt inappropriate," Portman says.

Moby took to Instagram to defend the statement made in his book about his past with Portman.

"I can't figure out why she would actively misrepresent the truth about our (albeit brief involvement," Moby says.

Moby asserts that the information is written in his book, "Then It Fell Apart," is accurate and that he has photographic evidence that the two had been in a relationship.

In an additional post made on the topic, Moby describes their relationship as "consensual" and innocent." This contrasts Portman's account of it being "creepy."

Whether or not their relationship was pleasant for both parties or not, it cannot be disputed that Moby did incorrectly state her age at the time they were allegedly together. Moby states Portman was 20 when they were together in 1999. Portman would have actually been turning 18 that summer, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Moby's information is not factual like he claims so it is unlikely he can be trusted detailing how the relationship went when he can't confirm important details like the ages of both parties involved. Why should the media believe they were together as he described when he refuses to admit he lied about her age?

18 Times Kate Middleton Was Actually All Of Us In College, Beside The Princess Thing

Every girl has to go through her clueless college stage before she reaches Duchess status.

Kate Middleton is basically a household name by now, and how could this not be the case when she has the gorgeous hair, kind smile, and incredible fashion sense. With her constantly in the spotlight looking so put together, we sometimes forget that the Duchess was actually all of us in college!

Here are 18 times that Kate proved she was just like all of us.

1. Going all out in the name of school spirit

There is nothing like breaking out the war paint and screaming for your home team. Like Kate, we all love to get a little messy and make some memories with our friends.

2. Hanging out with the roomies

Some people may not get lucky in this area but for those who are best friends with their roommates, they understand the love. It's a dream come true for everyone who has always wanted to live with their best friends. It's like a sleepover that never ends.

3. Dressing up cute on the first day of school...

You got to make a good first impression on your way to school. Whether it's during your 7 A.M or 4 P.M., it's always best to dress to impress.

4. ...and wearing yoga pants for the rest of the year

And this goes all the way until the last week of school when you don't bother getting out of bed to wear pants at all.

5. Going grocery shopping and throwing in cookies, ice-cream, and every type of Pringles because your mom isn't there to say no

You'll probably regret that in a few months when the Freshman Fifteen kicks in.

6. Walking for miles from your car to your dorm carrying groceries

We can't park by the apartment for a solid five minutes to carry our groceries up to the kitchen or we will risk a ticket, but we can walk a few miles carrying food that gets heavier, and heavier, and heavier with every step.

7. Going out for a night on the town on a Friday night

Dancing, laughter, and fun? Everyone in college has been to a party or two. It's a classic part of the college experience. Sometimes you just need a distraction from all the essays and tests.

8. Being so late to class you threw on whatever your hands grabbed next

We've all been there. Our alarm doesn't go off, we press snooze a few too many times, or forget to even set an alarm and next thing you know we are running around the dorm room like Taz from Looney Toons. You throw on whatever, then run to class.

Unfortunately 9/10 times our outfits don't turn out. Although, Kate can certainly pull off this look, no matter how mismatched.

9. Pretending your walking to the same building as the cute boy you met so you have the excuse to keep talking to him

I am very guilty of doing this. Although I missed my class, at least I got to talk to the really cute boy who has class at 9:45 in the STEM building. It was worth it.

10. Sitting on the floor or standing because you're a poor college student who can't afford chairs or tables

Eating on the floor? Always. Being a college kid is tough and sometimes you have to sacrifice some things to obtain the others. Such as choosing chocolate milk and Halo Top over vegetables and hair conditioner.

Judging by Kate's beautiful locks, she chose the conditioner.

Probably the vegetables too.

We should just all follow her example.

11. Going on cute date with the boy you followed to class-turned-boyfriend

Now my short-lived romance may not have extended farther than us talking and walking to his class, but Kate and William obviously had a better ending. Nevertheless, college is the place to grow and date and possibly find the one.

12. Keeping your hair long and growing because you can't afford to get it cut

Don't trust your roommate. No matter how many times she begs you to let her cut it. Don't.

13. Turning 21 and getting dressed up and going out with your best friends

While this one probably doesn't apply to Kate, since you can drink at age 18 in most countries, all my people in the United States know the sweet freedom of turning 21. It's an iconic time in a students life and marks a huge milestone as well.

14. Passing out flyers for some type of movement or protest

Everyone wants to be a part of something bigger - which is why college is the time to stand up for what you believe in. May that be RedforEd, Planned Parenthood, anti-Abortion, Trump, the Wall, pizza bagels, it's all an exercise of the first amendment.

15. Ranting to your friends about the professor that just "doesn't understand you"

You know your thinking about that professor right now as you read this. And you know that that's your reaction whenever they give you a bad grade or say something you disagree with at the tiniest degree.

16. Getting glammed-up for those senior photos

Pick out your best outfit and make sure it's a good hair day because everyone will be viewing these photos forever... and in Kate's place that is more than true. Luckily she looks as gorgeous as ever. Does she ever have a bad hair day?

17. Walking out of your last class knowing you'll never have to write a single paper again

And purposefully not thinking about how you will be going into the real world in less than a few days.

18. When you've graduated and realized you have no idea what you're going to do with your life

Maybe a prince will be right around the corner to sweep you off your feet so you won't have to figure your life out.

The Jonas Brothers' 'Chasing Happiness' Shows The JoBros And Their Fans Are All Grown Up

As the Jonas Brothers have grown together and as individuals, so have their fans.


SPOILER WARNING: This article contains spoilers for "Chasing Happiness"

The new Jonas Brothers "Chasing Happiness" documentary released this past Tuesday, just making fans more proud of where the brothers are now in their lives. Believe when I say, I have already watched it three times.

Jonas Brothers' Chasing Happiness - Official Trailer | Prime Video YouTube

In the documentary, the brothers give viewers insight from the very beginning of their lives to where they are now. From Nick's time on Broadway to the Jonas family disconnecting from their church where they were kicked out of, as well as truth bombs on how life on the Disney Channel hurt their image.

Now, I know that the Jonas Brothers have been around these last couple of months, releasing two new songs, "Sucker" and "Cool," but most sets they perform creates PLENTY of nostalgia for fans as they do a lot of their old music, like "Burning Up," "Year 3000," and "Lovebug."

And to reassure, they never expected for fans to unite as fast as they did over their reunion.

For myself, the documentary gave me a new respect for the Jonas Brothers. I have always loved their music and been a fan since they first came on to the scene, but now that I am out of that phase of being a so-called "fangirl" and into my 20s, I get a better understanding of what they really had to go through.

Nick, Kevin, and Joe have always kept close to who they are and now that their fanbase is a lot older, coming out with this documentary was a smart move into their new era of music and what they want to achieve with it. They have always been able to grow with their fanbase and that's evidently why their music began to mature, especially now.

When we were young and even now, we never know of the hardships that many of our favorite celebrities go through, specifically if they keep their business private as the JoBros stated in the documentary, to get to where they are now. It's always a mystery on where they came from.

It's a great feeling to see a piece of your childhood back and I think that's what the brothers really reflected on. They wanted to go back to it and just have fun like they use to. They see the fans wanting the reunion and they gave not only them the time to miss it but they also gave themselves the time to miss it. That's the biggest takeaway from the documentary.

But now with their new 16 track album "Happiness Begins" coming out within the next couple of days, the documentary sets up a great understanding of what this album is all about and I am sure it will be one of the best albums yet — with the exception of "A Little Bit Longer" because it's personal favorite.
