**Nikki Bella is moving on after ending her engagement and six-year relationship with John Cena…according to US WEEKLY, she’s now dating her former Dancing With the Stars partner Artem Chigvintsev.

The professional wrestler, 35, and the ballroom dancer, 36, have been seeing each other “for a while,” the insider tells Us.

Bella appeared on the dance competition’s 25th season in 2017 and Cena, 41, also became close with Chigvintsev at the time. In fact, the Trainwreck actor once thought that the ABC star would choreograph his first dance with Bella.

Artem is currently on a national Dancing With the Stars: Live tour, but he was spotted with Bella at the farmer’s market in Studio City, California, over Christmas weekend during time off.



**Walt Disney Studios is celebrating its second biggest year of any in the history of the box office.

The company made more than $7 billion globally in 2018, becoming the only studio to ever reach that high of a number.

Disney was so successful that the only studio that could beat it last year is Disney in 2016.

That year, the company posted $7.6 billion, setting a new global record.

Analysts said Disney was helped by the number of blockbusters it released last year, including Marvel's 'Black Panther' and 'Avengers: Infinity War.'

**Herb Kelleher, who changed the airline industry by helping create and lead Southwest Airlines, a low-fare carrier that made air travel more accessible to the masses, has died. He was 87.

Southwest confirmed that Kelleher died on Thursday via Twitter saying,

“We already miss you, Herbie. #HonoringHerb”

Kelleher was a lawyer in San Antonio when a client came to him in the late 1960s with the idea for a low-fare airline that would fly between big cities in Texas. Today, Southwest carries more passengers within the United States than any airline.

**Almost a month after postponing the remainder of his 2018 concerts, Justin Timberlake announced that he has officially returned to his Man of the Woods Tour. In a quick Instagram video,  he told fans that he'll be performing in Washington D.C. on Friday.

"First of all, Happy New Year. Hope everybody had a good holiday. Second of all, D.C. we here. We're back. Can't wait. Excited, ya'll ready?" Timberlake says in the clip, which has the caption, "And... we’re back. See you tomorrow DC! #MOTWTOUR."

In early December, the GRAMMY winner was forced to postpone his December 2018 shows after suffering from bruised vocal cords. The singer, who had been on the road since March, took to Instagram to explain the decision to his fans.


And... we’re back. See you tomorrow DC! #MOTWTOUR
