As well as the Taken actor, cook Kitty also had children Elizabeth, Bernadette, and Rosaleen with husband Bernard ‘Barney’ Neeson.

The sad news comes just one day before movie star Liam turns 68.

Kitty’s passing comes 11 years after Liam’s wife Natasha Richardson tragically died in a skiing accident in Canada.

Relatives of the 45-year-old actress made the heartbreaking decision to switch off her life support machine in 2009 after saying their final goodbyes after doctors told them there was no hope. 

An autopsy concluded that Natasha, who took a tumble during a skiing lesson, had died from a build-up of blood in the brain known as an epidural haematoma.

They are currently in the Caribbean in a reported final bid to save their marriage.

And on Thursday morning, Kanye West tweeted out an image of daughter North West from when she made her debut rap performance on the stage at his Yeezy Paris Fashion Week 2020 show.

The rapper’s tweet comes just weeks after his political campaign rally and Twitter meltdown, where he discussed how he and wife Kim Kardashian once considered having an abortion when she was pregnant with North, and hinted that she once had an affair with rapper Meek Mills – which Kanye has since publicly apologized for.

Kanye posted the image of North, adding a heart emoji along with the tweet. 

Kim has also recently returned to Twitter; on Thursday she tweeted that she was ‘so proud’ of pal Lala Anthony’s Essence cover, retweeting the cover and inside picture her friend had posted.  

North, seven, made her rap debut in March of this year, as she belted out lyrics while Kanye presented his Yeezy brand’s Autumn/Winter 2020 collection in Paris during fashion week.

North, then six, was the picture of confidence as she took the stage in front of the massive crowd which featured proud mom Kim – as Kanye joined her on stage and gave his support.

His tweet comes as he is on a trip with wife Kim and their four children as what can only be described as a ‘fortress’ – as their relationship hangs by a thread following a series of public meltdowns, TMZ reported.

They were seen leaving Wyoming via private jet as they stay on the remote estate to try and rebuild their relationship before its ‘beyond repair.’ 

Prior to their trip, Kim and Kanye were seen together during an emotional reunion in the car after she jetted to their ranch in Wyoming, following his series of controversial statements about their marriage, which she attributed to his bipolar disorder.

During their trip to the Caribbean, they are reportedly keeping topics like Kanye’s presidency campaign off the tale and politics in general, as they appear to be at odds on topics like pro-life and pro-choice, according to TMZ.

After his presidential campaign rally on July 19, in which he tearfully revealed he and Kim had considered aborting North, Kanye launched into a days-long string of Twitter rants denouncing both his wife and his mother-in-law Kris Jenner. 

Family is everything: Kim and Kanye, who wed in 2014, are parents to North, seven, Saint, four, Chicago, two, and Psalm, one

Last month, Kim took to Instagram following Kanye’s controversial behavior, admitting that she was ‘powerless’ amid his meltdown, calling her husband ‘brilliant but complicated’.

She said: ‘Those that understand mental illness or even compulsive behavior know that the family is powerless unless the member is a minor.’ 

The reality star said ‘his words sometimes do not align with his intentions’ after Kanye last night claimed he has been ‘trying to get divorced’ from Kim since she met his fellow rapper Meek Mill at a hotel.

Kanye said that Kim was ‘out of line’ to meet Meek Mill at a hotel in Los Angeles to talk about ‘prison reform’, and blasted her mother Kris Jenner as ‘Kris Jong-Un’ while accusing the pair of ‘white supremacy.’

However, Kanye apologized to his wife in a tweet last week.

The rapper tweeted: ‘I would like to apologize to my wife Kim for going public with something that was a private matter. I did not cover her like she has covered me.to [sic] Kim I want to say I know I hurt you. Please forgive me. Thank you for always being there for me.’

Newly single pinup star Kristin Cavallari is definitely changing her public image.

The 33-year-old Hills veteran was seen striking a bombshell pose in a white bathing suit for an Instagram post on Thursday to plug her jewelry line Uncommon James.

This comes after the estranged wife of football vet Jay Cutler hugged her ex-boyfriend Stephen Colletti.

In this new image the reality TV siren made her toned figure the focus as she curled up her legs while in a plunging white one-piece suit.

The single photo was carefully constructed with the blonde sitting on a white photographer’s backdrop. There were also white vases with edgy, modernist designs that contained long-stemmed  white lilies.

The looker placed one foot under her thigh and held onto her bare foot as she raised her chin to share a confident pearly white smile all while wearing her Uncommon James jewelry – earrings and a ring.

And to complete the glam look, the entrepreneur added oversized black sunglasses that screamed Hollywood.

The short caption read, ‘So excited for our jewelry + sunglasses collab! Head to UncommonJames.com to check it out!’

This comes the day after Kristin sent out shockwaves while posing with her ex.    

The former couple’s romantic relationship was well-documented as part of the hit MTV series Laguna Beach, and fans went wild in the comments with speculation over what it all could mean.

In the dimly-lit photo, Kristin wrapped her arms around Stephen as the duo turned towards the camera and smiled. 

The selfie comes just four months after Kristin split from her husband Cutler, whom she was married to for seven years and shares three children with. 

Kristin continued to get fans guessing with her caption, which read, ‘2004 or 2020?!’ 

Her Instagram stories were a dead giveaway however, with Kristin sharing a photo of herself promoting her Uncommon James jewelry while wearing the exact same outfit.  

While fans attempted to figure out what was going on between the former lovers,  sources told TMZ the pair have not rekindled their relationship and are simply friends.

The photo was taken during a recent trip Kristin took to Laguna Beach, where she met up with Stephen and former costar Alex Murrel.

MTV fans will definitely remember all the drama that transpired on the hit series Laguna Beach, which chronicled the lives of teenagers living in the affluent beach town from 2004 to 2006. 

Stephen was famously involved in a love triangle with both Kristin and her rival Lauren Conrad.

Looking back on the drama in her book Balancing in Heels: My Journey to Health, Happiness, and Making It All Work, Kristin claimed Stephen was pressured by producers to hang out with Lauren during their relationship.  

Kristin admitted she felt threatened by the new dynamic, and was ‘deeply’ impacted by what the producers had done.

‘We loved hard and fought hard. My relationship with Stephen went from our own high school romance to the fodder of a hugely successful television show,’ she wrote, according to an excerpt obtained by E!.

‘Normal high school relationships are dramatic enough, but ours now had the added pressure of being seen by MTV viewers across the country as well as being manipulated by the show’s producers, a set of adults were very suddenly involved in the intricacies of our lives. 

‘Surprisingly, the producers had a bigger effect, as they controlled and mapped our lives more than we were aware. One of the most hurtful things they did was pressure Stephen to spend time with another girl from the show, Lauren, while he and I were dating. 

‘It certainly provided some juicy conflicts, but it also affected me deeply. I felt threatened. On one side, it seemed like the producers were trying to break us up, which was intimidating. On the other side, I was worried that my relationship with Stephen was becoming less stable, even though I knew if we hadn’t been on television, he wouldn’t have been spending time with another girl.’

Kristin admitted the relationship meant the world to her, but harbored concerns about the impact the cameras had on their romance. 

‘Stephen was the most important thing in my life, and there was nothing I cared about more. I hated fighting with him on camera because it felt like I was airing all our dirty laundry. Even then, I knew that couldn’t be good for a relationship,’ she wrote. 

Despite their painful past, Kristin and Stephen have remained friends and will even speak with each other on occasion.   

‘We’re friends. I speak to them from time to time,’ Stephen told Us Weekly in 2018. ‘I’ll go down. Conrad will throw a killer 4th of July party in Laguna, and so I’m usually down there for that. And then, yeah, I’ll speak with Cavallari from time to time. We always just check in and say hello.’

Nowadays, Kristin is back on the market after ending her marriage with former NFL player Cutler, whom she shares sons Camden, seven, Jaxon, six, and daughter Saylor, four, with. 

Stephen, meanwhile, dated actress Chelsea Kane from 2011 to 2013 and Hayden Panettiere from 2006 to 2008.
