Ex-sportsman Boris mixed comfort with style as he wrapped up in a textured grey longline coat, teamed with a fluffy brown collar.

Boris – who was declared bankrupt two years ago – revealed he’s currently in a much better place in his life in a recent Instagram message.

The Leimen native – who is in the final stages of divorce from ex-wife Lilly – expressed his delight as he posted a reflective message where he insisted he feels ‘amazing’ in his life. 

Alongside the caption: ‘#word on Sunday’, he wrote: ‘My career’s coming together. My purpose is becoming clearer & clearer. My circle’s beautiful. My life is thriving.

Meanwhile, reports claim that the athlete is in the ‘final stages’ of divorcing his former wife Lilly after the couple announced their split last year. 

Last December, she reflected on the past year after parting ways from her husband of nine years during an interview with Günther Jauch on Germany’s RTL.

The brunette admitted the couple will never rekindle their relationship, insisting: ‘It’s really over between us.’ 

Dutch beauty Lilly, 43, bluntly said: ‘2018 was the worst time of my 42 years. He so grossly disappointed me.’

Speaking on the negative effects of being in the limelight, she went on: ‘What makes it so bad is that everything is happening in public now. But I married a public man, maybe it’s part of it.’ 

‘Unfortunately, [a reunion wouldn’t] not work anymore. Too much has happened. I do not want to, he does not, and that’s fine. It’s really over between us.’

Lilly added that the pair’s priority is their son: ‘The most important thing is that the future of Amadeus is well arranged. It’s not about Boris or me.

‘It concerns the joint custody. He can see his son whenever he wants. Amadeus loves his father, and he loves him’, she went on.

Boris and Lilly, who were married for nine years, confirmed their breakup via a German lawyer last year, in a statement given to Bild newspaper.

Lawyer Christian-Oliver Moser said: ‘The decision after a 13-year-long relationship and nine years of marriage wasn’t an easy one.’

Strictly Come Dancing’s Michelle Visage ‘SNUBBED for live arena tour in blunt email’

Published

By

Michelle Visage has reportedly been left out of the line-up for the upcoming Strictly Come Dancing tour, despite being one of the favourites to win.

The RuPaul’s Drag Race UK star, 51, who has scored consistently high with the BBC show’s judges, is reportedly ‘annoyed’ after allegedly being told the news in a ‘blunt email’, following negotiations with bosses.

A source told the Daily Star: ‘Michelle was approached by the producers working on the tour a while ago. They talked her through the dates and asked if she could be available. But then suddenly she got an email saying she wasn’t needed.

‘The message was short and blunt. Michelle was left feeling confused by the whole thing and pretty annoyed. She is trying her hardest to impress on Strictly and feels like she deserved a place on the tour.’

MailOnline has contacted representatives for Michelle Visage and Strictly Come Dancing for comment.

American star Michelle has been a favourite with judges and viewers of the show, consistently receiving high scores and placing among the top of the Leaderboard.

The star is partnered with hunky Italian professional Giovanni Pernice, with whom her lowest score thus far has been 36 points out of a possible 40.

She is believed to have received the standard £25,000 fee for appearing on Strictly, with her earnings increasing to £40,000 after remaining until the end of October.

According to The Sun, Michelle will pocket £60,000 if she makes it to the quarter finals, while she stands to scoop a cool £100,000 should she prove victorious.

The stars’ income will be further boosted once they join the line-up of the live arena tour, which takes place across the UK from January.

Michelle recently hit back at claims that she ‘hates’ British Cheryl, after they clashed over Baga Chipz’ advertisement for bottled water on Thursday’s episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK.  

The Strictly star responded to a fan who tweeted: ‘Omg why does @michellevisage hate @cherylofficial so much. Someone spill the tea immediately #DragRaceUK.’

Michelle fired back: ‘Omg it’s telly! We actually love each other!’ followed by a heart emoji. 

During Cheryl’s guest judge appearance on Thursday’s show, she appeared to ruffle feathers with mainstay Michelle as the duo clashed during judging.     

The two women split opinion on Baga Chipz’ product, after RuPaul asked the drag queens to create an advertisement for bottled water.

Michelle couldn’t appear to get her head around the concept of Baga’s water and said: ‘I’m really not sure about the water concept. With what you were selling, I think we had more fun watching you put stuff in your mouth.’

But true to form, Baga quipped: ‘I think I was just trying to sell fish and chips in a bottle that just fills you up.’

‘Let’s hear from the other judges,’ Michelle said, ‘Maybe it’s just me?’ 

‘I think it’s just you,’ Cheryl fired back, ‘I think it was actually smart that you kept it on brand. If I was gonna buy that water, I would know that was associated with you. Michelle?’ 

Correcting Cheryl, Michelle responded with: ‘Well her name’s not battered sausage is it? It’s Baga Chipz!’

Keanu has continued to keep his private life out of the spotlight, and hasn’t been publicly known to be in a relationship for a very long time. 

Life & Style noted that Alexandra has managed to help Reanu speak about the death of his former girlfriend, Jennifer Syme. 

The pair were expecting a daughter in 1999 but the child was stillborn at eight months. 

The death caused the couple to draw apart and they split soon after. 

Jennifer then tragically passed away in 2001 when she drove her car into a row of parked cars in Los Angeles.  

She died immediately and was only 28 at the time.
