Quickies: Ed Sheeran, Black Pink & Zayn Malik
ED SHEERAN’S ON-THE-ROAD SALARY IN 2018: Ed Sheeran’s 2018 Divide tour raked in a historic amount of money: $429.5 million, to be exact. And he brought home a pretty paycheck from it. E! Online reports that documents filed by Ed’s touring company, Nathan Cable Touring, on December 31st show that the singer personally earned about $49 million for the financial year ending March 31, 2018. Divided by 365 days in year, that’s $134,000 per day...and that’s only the money he made from touring. Ed also has a company called Ed Sheeran Limited, and in 2017 alone, it earned a gross profit of over $34 million.

ZAYN MALIK & GIGI HADID SPLIT: Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik have reportedly broken up – again. "They’re done," a source told Us Weekly about the 23-year-old model and 25-year-old entertainer. "They could get back together, but it’s over for now." "She cut herself off from all her friends every time they were together," another source said. "She focused all her time and energy on him, but it just got to be too much." Gigi and Zayn previously broke up back in March of 2018 and got back together in April of 2018. Fans found it odd that neither star shared photos together from the holidays. Plus, Hadid spent New Year’s Eve at good friend Taylor Swift’s NYE party, dressed as Mary Poppins, with the former One Direction member noticeably absent.
