Don McLean, 73, Confirms Relationship with 24-Year-Old Model Paris Dylan

Don McLean’s last marriage lasted for about 29 years and ended with him getting arrested for domestic violence against then-wife Patrisha.

Now, the 73-year-old music legend has moved on with a 24-year-old girlfriend, Paris Dylan.

The couple has made their relationship official by gushing about it on Instagram.

Don McLean is a musician, best known for the album American Pie and particularly for the song of the same name.

Paris Dylan is a Catfish alum who has been featured in Playboy and Maxim.

They’ve made it very clear on social media that they are dating.

“A dream with my love,” Paris captioned one recent photo.

In another, she gushes, calling McLean the “love of my life.”

In October, she wished him: “happy birthday my baby, my beauty, love of my life, my everything.”

The pair of them have done a lot of traveling this year.

The singer and his model girlfriend visited Germany, France, the UK, and Israel.

While in France, Paris visited the city of the same name.

The couple, as you can see in the photo above, posed in front of the Eiffel Tower.

They also visited the Louvre.

It’s unclear when their relationship officially began.

As far back as November of 2016, Paris shared a photo of the two of them, but that’s not the same thing as dating.

It was really in March of 2018 when the two of them seemed to be joined at the hip — almost literally — and posting a steady stream of photos.

That is when the two were “linked,” but officially speaking, they were just pals.

Now that they’ve both been gushing about each other and sharing the same photos on social media, we can comfortably call them a couple.

Paris Dylan is a model who, as we mentioned, has posed for Playboy and Maxim.

As you can see in every photo in which she appears, she certainly has the qualifications — and we mean that sincerely — for that kind of modeling.

But she is really best known for appearing in a wildly elaborate episode of Catfish.

That particular episode, as you may recall, involved NBA star Chris “Birdman” Andersen.

Now she’s traveling the world with a music legend and, from what she rights on social media, both deeply in love and enjoying each country she visits.

The couple’s age gap spans nearly 50 years.

People can have a cynical view towards relationships that feature massive age gaps.

A lot of the time, there’s a pattern.

Often, there’s a very unbalanced power dynamic that favors the party who is older, wealthier, more famous, and male.

Some may view Paris Dylan as either a lucky groupie, someone being exploited in their search for stability, or even a predator taking advantage of an older man.

We would prefer to reserve judgment until there is any indication that this is something other than a relationship between two people born at very different times.

So far, there are no hints that anyone involved is in any way unhappy. Until that changes, let’s leave well enough alone.

Maybe we can even be happy for them. There’s little enough joy in the nightmarish hellscape of 2018.


Jael Strauss, America’s Next Top Model Alum, Has Stage IV Breast Cancer

I don’t want to die.

These are the heartbreaking words penned by Jael Strauss on her Facebook page in a message to fans that relayed the most painful news imaginable:

She has been diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer.

“I was gonna write some long thing but some of you guys deserve to know,” the 34-year old wrote last week, four days into Breast Cancer Awareness month.

She then added very simply:

“On October 2nd I was diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer. It has aggressively spread throughout my body and is incurable.”

Stage IV is the final and most serious stage for cancer.

It is not always a death sentence, but as Strauss writes here, there is rarely any treatment options for someone that has contracted such an illness.

Strauss later confirmed that the name of her illness was rapidly progressive metastatic inflammatory breast cancer.

She went on to explain that undergoing chemotherapy and treatment may help extend her doctors’ original prognosis.

“With treatment it may prolong my life longer than the “few months” doctors said I could make it,” she added.

“I don’t want to die. I need another one of those miracles that I got back in 2013.”

Strauss competed on the eighth season of America’s Next Top Model in 2007, finishing six among all contestants.

Just this past August, she celebrated five years of sobriety, writing at the time on Instagram;

“Today I have 5 years sober. Good God!

“I know a few things to be true: Miracles are real, Recovery is possible for everyone no matter how far gone you think you are, We are never too broken to be put back together.”

She talked years ago with Dr. Phil about how an intervention by her loved ones allowed her to overcome her addiction. 

(Hence the reference above to the year 2013.)


“Service work feels better than the greatest high, Sobriety makes you weirder not normal,” she continued last month.

“And I’d be dead if it weren’t for all the love and forgiveness I’ve been showered with by my friends and family. Thank you to anyone that’s ever let me sponsor them.”

To help offset some of the medical costs, Strauss’ friends have set up a GoFundMe page on her behalf, confirming that the former model has already started chemotherapy.

“What we do know is that Jael is putting all of her energy and drive into fighting this insidious disease and can use as much support and love as possible,” reads the fundraising page, noting that:

“Jael is in tremendous pain right now and is unable to work. In a month, she will be let go from her job and lose her health insurance.”

It adds:

Jael, being the selfless person that she is, has helped countless people throughout her life as an advocate for recovery and social justice.

She has offered everything she has to people in need; no matter what their situation, she is always ready to help with an empathetic heart and nonjudgmental spirit.

She has created “gofundmes” for literally dozens of her friends, and it is now time for us to pay her back.

We have the chance, and honestly the obligation, to step up and return the favor.

You can donate to her cause HERE.

The campaign has since raised over $ 7,800 in three days.

“Currently fighting stage 4 inflammatory breast cancer,” reads Jael’s Instagram bio. “Plz send miracles.”

We are doing just that.


Scott Disick to World: I Am Still Banging a VERY Young Model!

In case you haven’t checked in on Scott Disick in a while, and you were hoping that his cradle-robbing relationship with Sofia Richie had quietly come to an end … we have some bad news for you.

While Disick and Sofia did break up over the summer in a brief burst rationality, they’ve since resumed their ill-advised romance.

And as you can see, Scott reminded the world of that fact in somewhat uncomfortable fashion over the weekend

It seems he and Sofia traveled to Las Vegas to attend UFC 229 on Saturday night.

Sofia posted this pic on her Instagram page pre-fight.

“The man in the mirror,” she captioned the image.

Of course, at that point in the evening, Scott and Sofia had no idea what was in store.

As you may have heard, the evening’s main event was a much-hyped bout between outspoken Irishman Connor McGregor and the undefeated Russian juggernaut Khabib Nurmagomedov.

After McGregor was forced to tap out, all hell broke loose, as Khabib leaped into the crowd to fight a heckler.

Several members of the Russian’s team entered the ring with the intention of attacking McGregor, and arena security was forced to rush front row attendees to safety.

“So the night ended with us getting rushed out!” Richie later wrote in an Instagram story.

“Of course I attend the fight that ends in a riot.”

We’re sure it was an unpleasant experience, but Sofia has been with Scott for quite some time now.

So by now, she must be accustomed to short, angry dudes exhibiting wild bursts of erratic behavior.

Anyway, there’s been enough coverage of the fight and its totally bonkers aftermath.

We’re here to discuss the fully-clothed, yet oddly-intimate photo that Scott took and Sofia posted.

Now, Sofia is 20, which means she’s a consenting adult, and her relationship with Scott is perfectly legal, and yada, yada, yada.

But when they started dating, she was still in her teens, and since he’s a 35-year-old father of three, there’s a considerable ick factor to this relationship.

Perhaps part of the problem is that Sofia looks so young and Scott looks, well … not, but whatever the case, there’s something unsettling about him having her sit on the bed for skeevy hotel room pics.

Or maybe it’s just us.

Either way, you should probably just go ahead and avert your eyes, Lionel.
