Among the many people who walked alongside Puttinu Cares for their Good Friday marathon were Jeanelle and Kevin Curmi, parents of their late son Jake. 

The late Dr Victor Calvagna, the founder of the non-governmental organisation Puttinu Cares, had dedicated his last medal to the young Jake. 

Now, despite neither Jake nor Dr Calvagna being no longer with us, the parents of the young boy joined the Puttinu Cares marathon to commemorate all the help the organisations offers to parents such as themselves. 

With a touching image of Jake printed on their T-Shirts, Jeanelle and Kevin joined in the walk to raise funds for the organisation and will continue on by volunteering during the fund-raising marathon which takes place today.

Viral tweet suggests ASAP Rocky cheated on Rihanna prompting break-up

Viral tweet suggests ASAP Rocky cheated on Rihanna prompting break-up
Apr 15 2022 Share

Social media has been blowing up with rumours of a breakup between two pop-star music sensations Rihanna and Asap Rocky, after the latter allegedly cheated. 

For some context, this comes right after rumours about Rihanna being pregnant were confirmed when the singer posted social media photos rocking the baby bump. 

However, the rumour of a breakup started when a Twitter account @LOUIS_via_ROMA said; ‘Rihanna and ASAP Rocky have split. Rihanna broke up with him after she caught him cheating with shoe designer Amina Mauddi.’ 

The account, which belongs to a fashion influencer, also reported that this ‘allegedly happened during Paris Fashion Week.’ Amina was responsible for designing Fenty’s footwear offering and Rihanna has often been spotted sporting custom shoes from her label. 

As it currently stands, there is no other evidence to indicate that the couple have split. ASAP and Amin is not new as she had been seeing him years ago and collaborated with him numerous times. 

Many Twitter detectives were quick to go to work, also allegedly debunking the claims. They pointed to the timing of the breakup. If the split did happen during the Fashion Week, Rihanna would have been wearing the Mauddi shoes after the couple broke up.

Until a few months ago, only some young adults expressed interest in resuming their travels as many others, especially the elderly, were still concerned about the virus.

Sentiments have seemingly changed however as the airport was met with long lines of travellers ready to hop onto their flight. The Malta International Airport staff were very efficient and professional in their handling of the return of a busy airport. 

Earlier this month, Tourism Minister Clayton Bartolo revealed that 80% of Malta’s pre-pandemic travel routes had been recovered as measures continue to ease. 

As of 11th April, incoming tourists travelling to Malta from a red-listed country were allowed in with just proof of a negative PCR test. This, coupled with vaccination and masking measures being eased, has reignited a craving for travel, which the summer season will surely continue to boost.
