Harry Styles' stepfather, Robin Twist, passed away at age 57 after battling cancer. A rep for Harry confirmed the news, saying:

“Harry’s step-father, Robin Twist, sadly passed away this week after a long battle with cancer. The family asks for privacy at this time."

Robin, who had two other children, Mike and Amy, from previous relationships as well as being stepfather to Harry and Gemma Styles, married Harry’s mother, Anne, in June 2013.

Fans have been posting tributes to Robin, known for his sense of humor, on social media, and 1D Fans Give has set up a charity drive to benefit Stand Up To Cancer, which has already raised hundreds of dollars for the charity within minutes of being set up:

Happy Father's Day! Wedding and Daddy Discourse

Happy Father's Day! I had a great lunch with my dad, who looked very dapper in his suspenders! 

Louis Tomlinson was at his aunt's wedding and Harry Styles was at Pixie Geldof's wedding. Louis was also rumored to be recording the charity single for the Grenfall Tower fire but I haven't seen anything come through about that.

And yes, Louis did a belated 8 pm tweet about missing "little Freddie" - but considering that Freddie's "mom" is at a festival in Vegas, you'd think Louis could have maybe arranged to have Freddie come to the UK. It's been like 6+ months since Freddie's one and only time there. This is all so silly at this point....a multimillionaire with no paternity test, no custody arrangement that actually allows him to bring his kid to see his family, and when we do see him, it just happens to be captured by paps in front of his very public house (yet we never see anyone else get papped there besides Louis, Eleanor, and Freddie....like say Niall Horan, who said he sees Louis all the time. Sure, Jan. This all makes loads of sense). End it already. 

Local Man Meets Louis Tomlinson and Becomes Our Spirit Animal

A man from Doncaster met Louis Tomlinson awhile back while Louis was in town filming his music video. The guy took multiple photos with Louis AND set his twitter header AND avi to pics of him with Louis AND he tweeted Louis good luck on his album AND about playing snooker "next time". Everyone loves Louis! Brett H, we salute you. You're living the dream.

Bachelor in Paradise Drama Continues...

This just gets messier and messier. Corinne and her lawyer say she was so drunk she faceplanted in a jacuzzi, was dragged out of the hot tub, and the sexual contact continued:

The sources say she did not object to the sexual contact and may have indeed consented, but they say she was not capable of consent, point to the "Jacuzzi face-plant" and being laid out on the ground.

But TMZ says that people who have seen the video say Corinne's version is "absolutely not true" and that she didn't faceplant, wasn't dragged out of the hot tub, etc. The sources are saying there's no ambiguity when you watch the video - none of the things she claim happened. Meanwhile, DeMario has been fired from his job and he is eager to get his hands on the tapes to clear his name.  

I'm also finding it a bit odd that Corinne is not finding fault with DeMario (i.e., she doesn't appear to be saying he assaulted her because he also was drunk), but rather she faults the producers for not stopping them from hooking up. If you take away the cameras, this sounds like drunken hookup regrets (Corinne apparently has a boyfriend and was stressing about him finding out about the hookup...but then again, why did you go on the show if you had a boyfriend?). 

In other Bachelor-related drama news, Bachelor Chris Soules, whose car struck a man riding on a tractor, wants to block the jury in his felony hit-and-run trial from hearing anyone refer to the deceased man as a "victim." Chris was charged with leaving the scene of an accident that resulted in death after he fled the accident scene. Chris' lawyers don't think it's right for Kenneth Moser to be called a "victim" when Chris hasn't been charged or ticketed for causing the accident. Chris' lawyers also don't want the jury to see any evidence that Chris bought or consumed alcohol that day. After Chris fled, it took several hours to get a search warrant and when he was finally tested, his tests were negative for drugs or alcohol. 

All these people looking for love are finding nothing but drama.
