Adam Levine Marries Supermodel Behati Prinsloo

Stephen Lovekin/Getty Images for The Weinstein Company(LOS ANGELES) — It’s official — Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo are married.

The rocker tied the knot with the Victoria’s Secret model on Saturday at Flora Farms in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, according to E! News.

Prinsloo’s bridesmaids included fellow model Coco Rocha, according to E! News. In lieu of gifts, the couple asked that guests donate to Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles.

They’ll spend their honeymoon in South Africa, reports E! News.

After dating a slew of supermodels before Prinsloo, the Maroon 5 frontman and The Voice coach popped the question last July in Los Angeles.

Earlier this summer, Levine told Live with Kelly and Michael that he got a little “woozy” when he asked Prinsloo to be his wife.

“You can’t be confident about it,” he said. “I’m a confident person, but I got on that knee and everything changed immediately.”

He said he even lost his balance and got down on both knees, not just one.

Prinsloo said “yes” and maybe it was because of the ring Levine picked out for her.

“[The ring is] from the 1930s. It’s vintage and he picked it out,” the model told ABC News last year.

Levine, 35, and Prinsloo, 25, started dating in 2012.

Actor James Garner Dead at 86

Mark Mainz/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — James Garner, the actor whose easy charm and winking style helped re-define both the TV Western and detective genres, died Saturday at his California home. He was 86.

Garner first gained fame in the late 1950s on the TV comedy series Maverick. At a time when traditional Westerns were a staple of primetime TV fare, Garner’s wisecracking Bret Maverick — a gambler who’d rather run than fight but who could outdraw most gunfighters — was a tremendous hit, and made Garner a star.

Garner left Maverick after three seasons and built a film career, starring in both comedies and dramas, including the classic 1963 war drama The Great Escape and two hit romantic comedies opposite Doris Day.

In 1974, Garner returned to television in the comedy-drama The Rockford Files. Garner’s take on Jim Rockford, a Los Angeles detective who lived with his father in a run-down mobile home and drove a Pontiac Firebird, was an even bigger hit than Maverick, airing for six seasons and earning Garner a best actor Emmy in 1977. Like Maverick did with Westerns, The Rockford Files in many ways redefined the TV private detective show, and paved the way for similar hits, such as Magnum P.I.

Garner continued to switch between TV and film in his later years, and was nominated for an Oscar in 1985 for starring opposite Sally Field in the romantic comedy Murphy’s Romance. His later films included 1994’s Maverick, with Mel Gibson playing the title role and Garner starring as his father. Garner also appeared in 2000’s Space Cowboys opposite Clint Eastwood, and 2004’s The Notebook, and had a role on the TV sitcom 8 Simple Rules.

Garner’s autobiography, The Garner Files: A Memoir, was published in 2011. In 2005, Garner received the Screen Actors Guild Lifetime Achievement Award.

“American Ninja Warrior” Finalist Kacy Catanzaro Is Shocked By Fame

Peter Larsen/NBC(NEW YORK) — After becoming the first woman to make the finals of American Ninja Warrior, Kacy Catanzaro became a celebrity almost overnight.

Nobody was more surprised than she was.

“I had no idea how many people would care so much about it,” she told People. “I’m getting messages from my friends saying telling me that I am trending on Facebook and Twitter and that my video has 4 million views. It’s amazing. My followers have skyrocketed 30,000 plus more in just a couple of days.”

Catanzaro, who appeared on the show once before, blew away viewers by mastering each obstacle of the show’s grueling course. Though she doesn’t know what the finals have in store, she feels ready for whatever comes her way.

“The ring toss was something new this year and it was definitely a challenge, but I just took it slow and tried to stay calm,” she explained of her strategy. “I just kept going and tried to stay calm and it was really helpful. I believed in myself and went for it.”

No matter what happens in the future, the lifelong gymnast is happy to have inspired so many fans with her performance thus far.

“Being able to get the opportunity to be in that spotlight and put such a positive message out has been so amazing,” she said. “It was a surreal moment.”

Casey Kasem’s Body Is Missing, Daughter Says

Michael Tullberg/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — The late Casey Kasem’s body is missing, more than a month after the radio icon’s death, according to his daughter.

A spokesperson for Kerri Kasem confirmed to ABC News that the legend’s adult children have yet to see his body. Casey Kasem died on June 15 at 82 years old after suffering from a form of dementia. An autopsy has also not been performed yet, the family said.

Jean Kasem, the radio personality’s second wife, had been embroiled in a conflict with his children from a previous marriage over her husband’s medical care for months before he died. She collected the body within 72 hours of his death.

Kerri Kasem was informed Thursday that Casey Kasem’s body was no longer at the mortuary, where it remained for a month.

Kerri and two more of Kasem’s adult children fought Jean in court for control of his health care leading up to his death. Early last month, a judge ruled that his care would be in the control of Kerri, not Jean. Shortly after, he was moved to hospice.

“This is the most difficult decision that a judge or an attorney can make. Mr. Kasem is dying and Mr. Kasem has expressed his desire to die peacefully and in comfort,” Troy Martin, an attorney for Kerri Kasem told ABC News in June.

A rep for Jean Kasem has yet to respond to a request for comment.

Why Tim McGraw ‘Swatted’ a Fan in Atlanta

ABC/Eric Gebhart(LOS ANGELES) — Tim McGraw may have had a good reason for getting aggressive with a fan.

A video posted by TMZ shows the country singer wading into the crowd during a show earlier this week in Atlanta, when one fan got too grabby.

“At the end of the night during the encore, Tim was singing out in the audience and someone firmly grabbed onto his leg and wouldn’t let go as he was moving through the crowd,” his rep told ABC News. “He instinctively swatted to try and keep them from ripping his jeans — which they succeeded at doing! — and so he could get to more fans who were trying to slap hands with him before the end of the show.”

The rep added that McGraw, 47, didn’t realize who grabbed his leg. “[He] was simply trying to keep his pants from being torn,” his rep said.

McGraw is in the middle of an international tour, which extends through November of this year.

His album, Sundown Heaven Town, is due out in September.

Blake Lively Opens Up About Husband Ryan Reynolds

Photo by Jean Catuffe/FilmMagic(NEW YORK) — He may not have been snapped alongside his wife, but the August issue of Vogue is as much about Ryan Reynolds as it is about cover star Blake Lively.

Sitting down with the magazine to promote her lifestyle website, Preserve, which will launch later this month, Lively opened up about her relationship with husband and cited him as an essential influence on her most recent venture.

“He’s a part of it because everything we do in life we do together,” Lively told writer Jonathan Van Meter. “If I’m working on a movie, he helps me with my character; I do the same with him. Picking out a coffee table. What we’re going to eat. He’s a beautiful writer — he’s written a lot of stuff for us. And he’s got a great barometer and he knows me, so he will tell me if it’s not as good as it can be.”

That characteristic frankness is clearly a trait that Lively has picked up on. The budding entrepreneur made tacit mention of Reynolds’ previous marriage to Scarlett Johansson, saying: “The fact that he lived so much before we got together, he’s the exact realized person that he should be. And so I get to share my life with the person he’s become, and we get to grow from there.”

Given that the article makes frequent mention of her status as a “celebrity homemaker,” it’s no surprise that Lively has babies on the brain. And while Lively is focused on her forthcoming venture for now, which the article in fact compares to a newborn, she is confident that Reynolds is “going to be a great father and leader and patriarch.”

“He’s so meant to be all of those things,” she said.

The actor has already mastered the easy-going attitude that parenthood requires. Lively told Vogue that her husband has helped her see beauty in imperfection and accident.

To wit: At their wedding outside Charleston, South Carolina, two years ago, an errant sparkler left “a big burn mark” on the front of her dress.

“It was just so heartbreaking to me,” Lively told the magazine. But Reynolds termed it “beautiful”– an unlikely memento of the special day.

“Now that’s my favorite part of the dress,” Lively said.

Jason Biggs Apologizes for ‘Insensitive’ Joke About Crash of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17

ABC/Jeff Neira(NEW YORK) — Jason Biggs has apologized for a joke he tweeted about the Malaysia Airlines plane that crashed on Thursday. The Orange Is the New Black star wrote, “Anyone wanna buy my Malaysian Airlines frequent flier miles?”

The quip elicited many negative comments on Twitter. However, the 36-year-old actor initially appeared as though he wouldn’t back down.

Biggs responded, “Hey all you ‘too soon’ a**holes- it’s a f***ing joke. You don’t have to think it’s funny, or even be on my twitter page at all.” He added, “The idea that I wouldn’t have any empathy 4 the victims or their families because I make a joke is absolutely ridiculous. U know that, right?”

By Thursday evening, it seemed the actor had a change of heart. Biggs tweeted, “Hey all — ok, so, I am deleting my previous tweets. People were offended, and that was not my intent. Sorry to those of you that were.”

Biggs added, “This is obviously a horrible tragedy, and everyone-including myself- is sad and angry about it. Sending positive thoughts to the victims and their families. P.S. No one is making me send these tweets- I simply understand that my comments might have come off as insensitive and ill-timed. For that, I apologize.”

Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 was carrying 283 passengers and 15 crew members, heading from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, when it crashed in eastern Ukraine, about 25 miles from the Russian border. There were no signs of any survivors.
