Blast from the past: When Parveen Babi suddenly joined Kabir Bedi in Italy
Parveen Babi was considered as one of the most glamorous stars of the ’70s and ’80s. She had a westernised image that perhaps came in the way of her getting roles that depicted her as a girl-next-door as filmmakers were keen to bank on her Eurasian good looks.

She was one of the highest-paid heroines of her era and appeared with Amitabh Bachchan in eight films, all of them being superhits. She was known for her item numbers. Numbers like Jawaani Jaaneman and Raat baaqi baat Baaqi in Namak Halaal, and Pyaar karne wale in Shaan still remain popular today. She was being featured on the covers of all major film magazines.

Apart from her good looks, she was known for her bohemian lifestyle. She always spoke her mind and never hid her affairs and lived life on her own terms. Parveen Babi created a stir when she joined beau Kabir Bedi in Italy on the sets of Sandokan.

Kabir became an international star when he agreed to be part of the Italian serial Sandokan. Directed by Sergio Sollima, it was based upon the novels of Emilio Salgari featuring the pirate hero Sandokan.

They were two beautiful people very much in love and the European press, who had been hailing him as a sort of superstar from India, played up their relationship.

It was widely reported and they even merited covers in Italian and Spanish media.

Their romance was intense but short-lived. He was increasingly becoming popular in Europe and was seemingly flooded with work. After Sandokan he even signed an adventure film called The Black Corsair (1976), where he reportedly played a pirate.

She was one of the most sought after heroines of the time and couldn’t afford to give her Bollywood career a miss. It’s said she had around 40 films lined up when she left and producers in Mumbai gave a collective sigh of relief when she came back. Her career soon picked up and she was back to top again, it was as if the two years with Kabir had never happened.

A long-distance relationship seemed out of the question, as Kabir was already married to Protima Bedi at the time. However, it was said that their marriage was already on the rocks. Protima reportedly admitted that she considered her marriage to be over and hence she didn’t mind his having a fling with Parveen. In an interview, Protima stated that when Kabir finally left, she felt a sense of relief. She mentioned he had been trying to get away from her and Parveen came into her life at the right time.

Parveen didn’t regret leaving him. She understood that things wouldn’t have worked out between them in the long run, especially when his career was very much centred in Europe and when he wanted to be away from Promita. She said she had her own life and could never consent to roam around the world in his shadow. She later reportedly started a relationship with director Mahesh Bhatt. Both were spiritually inclined at the time and used to visit UG Krishnamurti and Osho in his company. Sadly, it was during her relationship with Mahesh Bhatt that first signs of schizophrenia began to appear.

Did Selena Gomez and Niall Horan Finally Start Dating Last Year?

3 days ago Last year, a tabloid claimed Selena Gomez and Niall Horan were “finally” dating. Gossip Cop busted the bogus story when it came out. Looking back, it's clear the tabloid had no idea what it was talking about. On May 30, 2019, Life & Style alleged Gomez and Horan went from being platonic friends to a couple after reconnecting at a mutual friend’s wedding in February. Dubbing Gomez a “Bad Liar” which was a playful nod to her song, the outlet contended Gomez had lied previously about dating Horan. The publication asserted the two had “always been close” but something changed. "They've been chatting a lot more than usual,” a so-called source told the outlet. The supposed source continued that the One Direction singer has been “nothing but supportive” of Gomez which has earned her loved one’s “seal of approval” for the alleged relationship. However, the only "lying" going on was from the tabloid. The only piece of truth to the article was that the two singers attended their mutual friend Courtney Barry’s wedding in February, the rest of the story was completely fabricated. Not only was there no substantial evidence to support Selena Gomez and Niall Horan dating, but Gossip Cop also checked in with a mutual pal of our’s and Gomez’s who confirmed the story wasn’t accurate. Before the story even came out, Horan addressed the rumors about his speculated romance with Gomez and stated he wasn’t dating anyone at the time. "I’m focusing on the job at the minute, but I mean, it’s not like you ever go out of the way to properly look for it, a girlfriend,” the singer stated during an interview with Australia’s Hit 90.9 radio. Horan spoke on the rumors again most recently while on KIIS FM's The Kyle and Jackie O Show. “I remember I saw this stupid article a while ago of her walking out of my house or walking into my house or something like that and everyone was like, ''Oh they're together.” There were also about 15 other people there for a barbecue. It's just typical absolute useless nonsense,” the singer stated. Additionally, this wasn’t the first time Life & Style made up fictitious stories about Gomez. In November 2017, the outlet was busted by Gossip Cop for alleging Gomez was going to be a pregnant bride when marrying Justin Beiber. The dubious story purported Gomez and Bieber were "making plans to get married and start a family as soon as possible” and so-called insiders expected Gomez to be a pregnant bride. The story was obviously completely inaccurate. Gossip Cop also corrected the publication for insinuating that Gomez was going to be a pregnant bride at her so-called wedding to The Weekend. The tabloid was trying to recycle the same tale but use another former flame of Gomez’s. Just like we found no truth to Gomez marrying The Weekend, let alone being pregnant by him, we also found nothing accurate about her marrying Bieber as well. The publication was taking wild shots in the dark at Gomez regarding her personal life. Our Verdict Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
