Control Is Like a Supernatural Quantum Break

Yes, Remedy’s first multiplatform game since Max Payne 2 shares a lot in common with their ambitious 2016 cinematic action-adventure, Quantum Break. No, that’s not a bad thing. It’s most welcome, in fact, as it feels like a spiritual sequel, but with a tighter focus. Oh yeah, and supernatural powers too.

You play Jesse Faden (played by Quantum Break’s Courtney Hope), the new director of the Federal Bureau of Control. She’s been promoted there in the wake of the death of the previous director, and with that promotion comes certain…abilities, which will be useful in defending against The Hiss, a strange force that has invaded our reality and corrupted Bureau workers. She can use telekinetic abilities like Shield, which pulls clocks off of walls and chunks of nearby columns and holds them in front of her defensively, as well as Launch, which does the same but turns that debris around as an offensive weapon (at one point later in the demo, Faden flung a forklift at a target). She can also levitate, which became more useful the longer my demo went because the physics-defying three-dimensional transitions that got more and more outlandish the deeper inside the Bureau headquarters Faden went — a space called The Oldest Place. And she even becomes the keeper of a nifty transforming pistol that only the Director can wield.

Inside Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee’s Painful Past and New Family Drama: ‘He Feels Like She Crossed a Line’

 

At the heart of ongoing drama between former Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee and his son Brandon, is a long and painful history between the rocker and ex-wife Pamela Anderson.

Lee, 55, and Brandon, 21, made headlines this week following a domestic dispute that left Lee in the hospital. In the aftermath Brandon told PEOPLE the altercation was related to Lee’s alleged alcoholism, while Lee quickly denied the claims, saying “I’m happier than I’ve been in my life. I have a few drinks here and there.”

Still sources say Pamela Anderson, 50, who recently opened up to Piers Morgan about being abused by Tommy Lee during their three-year marriage, plays a key role in the fight.

“ feels like Pamela crossed a line by going out of her way to reference something that happened over 20 years ago, the most humiliating time of your life and such a sensitive subject that was painful for everyone,” says a Lee source of the former Baywatch star’s interview on Morgan’s ITV series Life Stories. Lee responded with a series of tweets about Anderson, which sources claim to be the catalyst for the fight between him and Brandon.

During her interview Anderson rehashes details of her tumultuous on-again, off-again relationship with Lee. Married on Feb. 19, 1995, the popular pair embarked on a headline-fueling rollercoaster that included ups, like welcoming their two sons Brandon in 1996 and Dylan in 1997, and downs, like the years-long court battle they fought after one of their homemade sex tapes was stolen and leaked by a disgruntled employee.

But their lowest point was undeniably a 1998 domestic dispute. Lee was sentenced to six months in the Los Angeles County Jail for spousal battery following an assault that left Anderson with bruises and a torn fingernail. She was reportedly holding their infant son, Dylan (now 20) at the time and Brandon reportedly witnessed it all. Lee pled no contest to the charges.

Related Video: Proud Mom Pamela Anderson Hits the Red Carpet With 21-Year-Old Son Brandon Lee

“It’s like why,” says the Lee source of Anderson’s motives in resurfacing the incident. “Everyone’s in a good place now. He’s happily engaged, the kids are working on their careers. Why when things are great does Pam spend her time going on TV rehashing a destructive, sensitive story. She wound everyone up.”

But a family source contends that things aren’t so great for Lee these days. “Everyone has been concerned for over a year about Tommy Lee,” says a family friend who says Brandon’s claim that Lee suffers from alcoholism is true. “The kid is really concerned about his dad. And he had enough and he was concerned for his mom.”

On Thursday, Anderson, 50, released a lengthy statement to TMZ in which she weighed in on the recent family drama.

“I pray Tommy gets the help he needs. His actions are desperate and humiliating,” Anderson said. “He is a disaster spinning out of control. … I will never talk to Tommy again before he is sober and in his right mind. … This is the Devil – This is the disease of alcoholism.”

In short order, Lee responded to Anderson with a detailed statement of his own. “No matter how much people wanna pin me as this deviant alcoholic abuser, that isn’t me,” he wrote in statement shared with TMZ, adding, “I’m a happy fun loving guy.”

Einstein Fans Can Dress, and Smell, Like a Genius

IT’S ALL RELATIVE: Dressing like Albert Einstein is one thing, but now true devotees can smell like him, too.
Levi’s Vintage Clothing has introduced a limited run of a replica of the Nobel Prize winner’s favorite leather jacket — Levi’s Menlo Cossack Jacket and a complementary Einstein-inspired scent. Levi’s plunked down 110,500 pounds for the pungent, well-worn leather jacket at Christie’s Valuable Books and Manuscripts sale in July 2016. At the time of the Christie’s sale, specialist Thomas Venning commented about the aroma of the pipe smoking-physicist favorite jacket — more than 60 years after his death. The esteemed scientist who became a U.S. Citizen in 1940 often appeared in photographs at the height of his fame in the mid-Thirties wearing his Menlo Cossack.
There are now 500 sheep leather pieces of the Italian-made piece and each is hand numbered. The Brooklyn-based perfume house D.S. & Durga developed the Levi’s-approved bottled scent — a blend of burley pipe tobacco, papyrus manuscripts, and vintage leather. Consumers who buy the $ 1,200 jacket and GWP at Levi’s online store or at select locations will also receive a No. 97 auction paddle as a wink at the one that was used to bid on the actual

Jamie Bell Says ‘It Feels Like’ He & Kate Mara Have ‘Been Married for Years — in the Best Way’

Jamie Bell and Kate Mara like to keep their date nights casual.

At Friday’s 2017 AMD British Academy Britannia Awards, which Bell and Mara attended together, the British actor revealed that the couple’s normal dates are much more low-key than star-studded event they were at.

Bell, 31, told E! News that “Netflix and Chill is date night.”

“Couch. Postmates. That’s our date night,” he added. “Our perfect date night is a movie and dinner.”

Bell — who tied the knot with Mara, 34, back in July — went on to say that though they’ve only been wed a few months, he feels like the actress has been his wife for longer. “It really feels no different to me. It feels like we’ve been married for years — in the best way,” he continued. “We’re having a great time.”

At the event the actor also told Entertainment Tonight that he and Mara are “having a great time” being newlyweds. “For me, nothing feels any different, and I think that’s the way it should be. You make a dedication to each other, and that’s it.”

“I can’t believe it’s still so early ” he continued. “It feels like we’ve been married forever.”

The former Fantastic Four costars initially announced their marriage on social media.

Mara posted a photo of her and Bell kissing on what appeared to be the dance floor at their wedding, captioning the photo “nuptials.” Bell shared the same photo with the caption, “Mr. and Mrs. B.”

The couple have been dating since fall 2015, and PEOPLE confirmed their engagement in January. They were spotted out together multiple times following the release of Fantastic Four in 2015.

“You constantly have to shift things, and communicate,” Mara previously told PEOPLE of dating an actor. “Like asking, ‘What’s your deal with that show or with this movie,’ to make sure that you actually can see each other.

“I think that’s the most important thing, especially when you’re in a relationship with another actor, because it’s tricky,” she added. “We’re on the same page though, so that helps.”

Bell has a son, 4 — whose name he has kept under wraps — from his previous marriage to Evan Rachel Wood. The former couple separated in 2014.

‘Homeboy’s Gonna, Like, Get It:’ Bella Hadid’s Slang-Filled Sneaker Shopping Video Is Making the Internet Insane

Bella Hadid often makes headlines for her nearly-nude looks, her fierce poses and smoldering selfies (and belfies). But this time, the 21-year-old supermodel has caught the Internet’s attention with her linguistics.

Hadid recently appeared on Complex‘s Sneaker Shopping where she met with Joe La Puma at Kith in New York City to chat about her love for sneakers and her partnership with Nike.

When the subject turned to “sexy tennis shoes,” Hadid opened up about the role sneakers play in her love life.

“Sneakers on a man is definitely the first thing I look at … I mean, come on. Matching shoes, that’s dope,” Hadid began, before picking up different shoes.

“I don’t mind dirty sneakers but they better be fresh,” she explained. “If homeboy’s coming through with these, it’s quiet. Yeah, no, it’s quiet for him. But, like, if he comes through in, like these. You got some Air Maxes out here, you got some Jordans. Homeboy’s gonna, like, get it.”

In true Twitter fashion, social media users immediately on Hadid’s quotes and started riffing on them, as seen above.

Others accused the model of trying to sound cool, with one even tweeting “Why does Bella Hadid sound like she’s trying to convince a group of underprivileged teens that drugs are wack.”

“I see Bella hadid in the corner of my room repeating ‘dope’ and ‘homeboy’ when I’m having sleep paralysis,” one Twitter user wrote.

What do you think of Bella’s Complex interview? Is it “quiet” for her?

Why The Bachelorette Still Makes Chris Harrison ‘Cry Like a Baby’

 

Chris Harrison has watched people fall in and out of love on television for 15 years, but the emotional journey of watching former Bachelors and Bachelorettes find the one still gets to him — especially Rachel Lindsay‘s journey.

“I host so many shows, but this show touches me,” the longtime ABC host told PEOPLE at The Bachelorette: Men Tell All taping. “That’s why I come back and do it, because I care about these people.”

Adds Harrison, 46: “Rachel and I went through this journey together. You can’t be this disengaged robot. When you’re going through it, I’m sitting across from this woman who’s bawling and putting her heart out, how do you not cry? I think being a dad myself, I just picture my daughter going through this someday. I just try and be the right person for them and support them. It’s a weird thing as a host. You’re not a typical host. I wear a lot of hats.”

 

Lindsay is finally down to her three reaming suitors — Bryan Abasolo, Peter Kraus and Eric Bigger — but, getting there wasn’t easy.

After an emotional date in Dean Unglert’s hometown of Aspen, Colorado, Lindsay made the difficult decision to part ways with the 25-year-old.

“I cried on the entire flight to Dallas, and I cried all day leading up to it,” Lindsay wrote in her exclusive PEOPLE blog.  “I didn’t want to make a decision, I wanted to run and just go home and never have to break another heart again. But when my tears dried I realized that, while I do feel a love for Dean, I’m just not sure he’s in a place in his life where he’s ready to settle down and start a family in the near future.”

And Harrison, who has been right by Lindsay’s side throughout this process, knows a little something about comforting.

The host, who is father to son, Joshua, and daughter, Taylor, credits his ability to empathize with the Bachelorette to his experiences as a father.

“When I think of my daughter, when I come home and she runs and jumps in my arms, I cry like a baby,” he said. “I never cry. Probably the first 30 years in my life, I’ve never cried. All of a sudden you have a son and things change. But when you have a daughter, I know it’s a double standard and it even may be a little sexist, but it’s just different. They just get to you. They crush you in ways you never thought you’d be crushed.”

The Bachelorette airs Mondays (8 p.m. ET) on ABC.

Kindergarten Teacher Kidnapped 16-Year-Old to Create Child Porn: He ‘Manipulates and Rationalizes Like a Child’

A former Las Vegas kindergarten teacher was sentenced to life in prison on Monday for kidnapping a 16-year-old girl and creating child pornography with her in his apartment for two months, PEOPLE confirms.

Melvyn Sprowson, 48, was sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole after 12½ years by Judge Stefany Miley, court documents obtained by PEOPLE show.

In March, Sprowson was convicted on four counts of unlawful use of a minor in the production of pornography, one count of first-degree kidnapping and one count of child abuse. He had pleaded not guilty and represented himself.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that at his sentencing hearing on Monday, Sprowson told Judge Miley that he still loved the victim.

Sprowson met the teen through a Craigslist ad he posted in August 2013, reports CBS8 Las Vegas.

Prosecutors alleged that he had the victim send him photos of her wearing very little clothing. The two exchanged several photographs, and eventually met at a roller-skating rink, reports the Review-Journal.

Sprowson and the victim developed a relationship after a few weeks. When the girl’s disapproving mother discovered her daughter’s contact with Sprowson, she took away her daughter’s phone as punishment, reports the Review-Journal reports.

Sprowson said he intended on keeping the girl in his apartment until she turned old enough that the two could get married, the Review-Journal reports. According to the victim’s testimony at trial, Sprowson removed her from school and prevented boys from entering his apartment while she was there.

While the girl was in his apartment, she wasn’t allowed to have any contact with her family. When Sprowson left the apartment with the victim, he concealed her identity with baggy clothes and a baseball cap. One time, Sprowson drove the victim right past her family’s house, reports the Review-Journal.

After Sprowson was charged but released from custody, he reached out to the victim on Instagram, reports the Review-Journal.

“This is someone who is absolutely incapable of doing two things: number one, doing what is right, and number two, knowing what he did was wrong,” Prosecutor Jacqueline Bluth said, as reported by the Review-Journal. “I’ve never once heard him take responsibility or accountability for what he has done.”

The paper also reports the victim’s grandmother asked Miley for the maximum sentence.

“This is a grown man who lies, manipulates and rationalizes like a child,” the victim’s grandmother said. “So I don’t see any hope of him not doing the same thing to another child.”

During his sentencing, Sprowson said, “This is an issue of age of consent. This is not an issue of me being a criminal and having criminal intent,” according to the Review-Journal. “One day I will die, and I will wake up in the arms of Jesus. That is my sole consolation in this whole process. The Lord knows what happened. I have a clear conscious before God.”

Sprowson at one point seemed to insist that he should not have even been charged with a crime, reports the Review-Journal.

“If she was 18 and not 16, would I have been charged with kidnapping? The answer is absolutely no,” he said. “If she was 18 and not 16, would I have been charged with child abuse? The answer is no,” Sprowson said.

 Sprowson told the judge he plans to appeal, according to NBC3 News Las Vegas.

What Celebrity Surrogacy Is Really Like from One Mom Who’s Been There: ‘It Was Never About Money’

As Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West consider a surrogate pregnancy, a woman who has been a surrogate says the journey to match any parent or parents with a woman who will carry a child and then give it up to them is filled with emotion on both sides.

“I hoped for everything I got,” two-time surrogate Dayna, 37, a stay-at-home Pennsylvania mom, tells PEOPLE, which is withholding her last name. “I didn’t want it to be a business transaction. I didn’t want it to feel like that.”

“It was never about money,” she says. “I wanted it to be personal. I wanted to get enjoyment like I did out of it. I was giving someone something that potentially they couldn’t get without someone like us.”

In April, Dayna delivered the second of two children that she carried for parents Jonathan Rollo and Joey Gonzalez, through a match overseen by the California-based agency Growing Generations. The couple welcomed a daughter, Francesca, now 18 months old, in December 2015; their son, Jake, is two months old. Both were conceived using anonymous donor eggs selected from a catalogue listing and then fertilized by the men and implanted in Dayna’s uterus.

“I personally didn’t feel any separation process,” Dayna says of the time after Francesca was born. “There was no grief, there was no mourning, there was no sadness. It was a pretty amazing feeling, just to see Jon’s and Joey’s faces when she was born, and them holding her for the first time. They were literally just glowing.”

17Kardashian West and her husband are already parents to 4-year-old daughter North and 18-month-old son Saint. But in planning for a third child, they recently hired a surrogate, PEOPLE confirms. Doctors had cautioned Kardashian West that another pregnancy would be risky because she suffers from a condition, placenta accreta, that causes the placenta to grow into the wall of the womb, thus making it hard to detach at the time of birth.

The 36-year-old reality star underwent a procedure to try and correct the condition. But she told her mother, Kris Jenner, on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, “I’ve come to the conclusion in my mind that I can’t carry another one. So now I want to explore surrogacy.”

Dayna, a mother of five children ages 7 to 20, decided to become a surrogate after a long consideration that involved her husband and their family; the couple welcomed two biological children and parented several foster children, adopting three, before choosing not to have any more.

But after seeing “so many people out there in need and just having that want and desire for their own biological children,” Dayna says she viewed surrogacy as her way to contribute further. “My pregnancies have always been easy,” she says. “After doing tons of research, it just felt right. It felt like something I wanted to do.”

Before going forward, she also allowed her kids a vote. “Is this going to be okay?” she asked. “This is not going to be your sibling at all. I’m just going to carry a baby for someone who can’t carry a baby.”

Their response? “They were all on board.”

A friend of hers had been a surrogate through Growing Generations, and Dayna reached out to the company, which does not advertise for surrogates but accepts online applications. Just 10 percent meet initial qualifications; only 1 or 2 percent of those advance for final consideration in a review that includes background checks, medical tests, and psychological evaluations. Among questions posed: Are you willing to work with single parents? Gay parents? Interracial couples?

“It was multiple applications,” says Dayna. “At that point, they pretty much interviewed you: Why do you want to become a surrogate? What do you hope to get out of it? Have you talked to your family about it? They do have a lot of requirements, which I feel are necessary.”

Founded in 1996, Growing Generations has overseen more than 1,500 births delivered via 1,200 surrogates, says Stuart Bell, the agency’s co-founder. Its client base is divided evenly between U.S. and international parents. Ninety percent of them are couples, and 60 percent of them are gay. (The agency is not working with Kardashian West.)

“Twenty years ago, infertility was such a cross to bear,” Bell told PEOPLE in 2015. “There was kind of this shame around ‘I can’t have a baby.’” Although surrogacy and surrogate contracts still generate legal and political debate in parts of the country, “they’re starting to understand that it’s not harming anyone involved,” Bell says. “This is something that’s building families in a positive way.”

It’s also costly. For a person or couple opting to use their own egg, Growing Generations tells them to budget $ 120,000 to $ 140,000 for the process; if a donor egg is used, the expense can climb to $ 150,000 to $ 200,000.

Costs include the egg donor fee of $ 15,000 to $ 16,000; the surrogate fee of around $ 35,000; the expense to create and implant embryos; allowances for the surrogate’s maternity clothing, travel and medical monitoring; and legal and insurance fees, all on top of the agency’s matching fees.

“When you say you’re going to be a surrogate, the first thing anybody asks is, how much money are you making?” says Dayna. Growing Generations ensures that surrogates are financially secure before taking on the responsibility, she adds. “The money is not worth what you’re putting your body through. You really need to be honest with yourself. This is something that you want to do for the right reasons.”

Once approved, Dayna received a packet with information about Gonzalez and Rollo — not detailed, but with photos, ages, how long they’d been together, and images showing them with family and friends.

Then she and her husband had a preliminary meeting over lunch with Gonzalez, the CEO of Barry’s Bootcamp, an international fitness boutique concept, and Rollo, a chef, owner and founder of Greenleaf Gourmet Chopshop, a chain of organic restaurants.

“We wanted somebody who has been through childbirth,” Gonzalez told PEOPLE, which earlier profiled the couple and their surrogacy process. “Our preference was for someone who has been through it more than once, psychologically secure, who could go through this process of separating from a child. That’s obviously not an easy thing to do. We both wanted somebody incredibly maternal, somebody that we thought respected the process.”

“When they presented Dayna,” he says, “it was the best-case scenario. She’s the most maternal person I’ve ever met. She’s just an exceptionally sweet, loving person. You can tell that family is a huge priority for her.”

Twenty-four hours after that meeting, each side sent word to the other through the agency: They agreed it was a match.

The two men and Dayna kept in constant touch through that first pregnancy via texts, calls and occasional in-person visits. Gonzalez and Rollo always talked of having more than one child. As they gathered for the first induced delivery and drove with Dayna to the hospital, “We were actually talking about the second one already,” Dayna recalls with a laugh. “I remember Joey’s mom saying, ‘Can we just have this one first?’”

“I planned on the first time being only a one-and-done thing, but the relationship I had with the guys, I knew instantly I would never be a surrogate for multiple families,” she says. After three months of pumping breast milk for Francesca, then freezing and shipping it overnight to Gonzalez and Rollo in California, she allowed her body to rest for a few months before starting the process for the second child. The dads were present at both births.

Today, “ loves seeing pictures of our babies, as much as we love hearing stories about her kids,” Gonzalez writes in an email. “Even if weeks go by without hearing from her, it’s easy to pick up where we left off. Sharing something this deep bonds people for life.”

“Honestly, there is no way to have assurance the surrogate will do things your way,” he says. “Which is why the process is so important. Be honest with each other about what matters most, and have trust that she will honor and respect that.”

He adds: “Don’t stress out if the first few meetings are awkward — it’s not the most natural relationship on earth and takes time to develop.”

But even as she values that relationship, Dayna says she’s not decided whether to be a surrogate again.

“I’m not getting any younger,” she jokes. “This one just really took a lot out of me. And I’ve got to think about my own kids. We hike a lot, we camp a lot; it’s hard to do those things when you’re pregnant.”

She does know, however, she has lifelong friends in the men whose family she helped to grow.

“I think the more you’re involved, the more you know what’s going on with the pregnancy, the more you can relate,” she advises those who may be considering using a surrogate. “You hope there are check-in points that they’re interested in, like, ‘What was the baby’s heart rate at the doctor’s today?’ because that just builds the excitement.”

“They don’t have to keep in touch,” she says of the two sides of the transaction. “Once they have that child, that can potentially be the end of the relationship, and I don’t think a lot of people prepare themselves for that. You need to prepare.”

She heard all throughout her process about how awful things can be between parents and their surrogates. But she, Gonzalez and Rollo all praise their match.

“I’m told all the time that we have a special relationship,” she says. “So I’m thankful very much for that.”

“I got everything that I wanted, and possibly more, when I went into this. To see the pictures of the guys with Jake and Francesca, and them living their lives, and all their pictures that they share, it’s amazing,” she says. “I helped create that.”

Taylor Lautner Has Been ‘Like A Husband’ To Girlfriend Billie Lourd

In December, actress Billie Lourd lost both her mother Carrie Fisher and her grandmother Debbie Reynolds just one day apart

A post shared by Billie Lourd (@praisethelourd) on

In the wake of their sudden deaths, Lourd and her uncle Todd Fisher ― Carrie’s brother ― have leaned on each other heavily. And it seems Lourd has also found an incredibly supportive partner in boyfriend and “Scream Queens” costar Taylor Lautner.

In an interview with E! News, Fisher said he always tends to be “suspicious of the guy hanging around [his] niece,” and yet had nothing but wonderful things to say about Lautner. 

“The truth of the matter is, the guy is pretty spectacular,” Fisher said. “He’s a really deep person, and he has supported her amazingly. He’s stepped up and acted like a husband would act. Not that that’s what’s going on, but it’s just an amazing support system for her, and I’m glad he’s in her life.”

On December 27 ― the day the “Star Wars” actress died ― Lautner posted a sweet photo with Lourd on Instagram with a caption that read, “This girl is one of the strongest, most fearless individuals I’ve ever met. Absolutely beautiful inside and out. I’m lucky to know you @praisethelourd. ❤️, me.”

The “Twilight” actor was also in attendance at the memorial and funeral for Fisher and Reynolds in January. The following week, Lautner and Lourd vacationed together in Mexico, further sparking rumors of a romance. And the pair has been spending a lot of quality time together ever since.
