Jennifer Lopez and Maluma have officially begun filming their new movie, “Marry Me.”

The “Hustlers” star went on Instagram on Thursday to share photos from her first day of shooting the romantic comedy and praised the Colombian singer as well as her co-star Owen Wilson, calling her time with the crew a “dream come true.”

“The art of collaboration…it’s what I love about this business!!!” Lopez wrote in the caption of her post, in which she shared images of Wilson jotting down notes at the cast table-read and of herself working with Maluma on set.

“True magic happens when inspiration meets the absence of ego. It’s so much fun when different artists come together and everyone contributes to create something special and true and real for everyone to experience and enjoy!! Issa flow… Here we go!!! @maluma #owenwilson @MarryMeMovie #Day1 #musicandmoviesmeet #dreamcometrue.”

JENNIFER LOPEZ SHARES PHOTOS WITH ALEX RODRIGUEZ FROM STAR-STUDDED ENGAGEMENT PARTY

Maluma, 25 replied to Lopez’s post, writing, “I’m so grateful 🙏🏻.” He would also share his own photo from the first day of shooting, simply writing, “DAY ONE / DIA UNO 🎥 🎞@jlo,” with an image of the 50-year-old pop icon laughing while sporting black workout pants and a white long-sleeved crop-top shirt with her hair pulled tightly into a bun.

“Today I fulfilled a dream I had since I was little,” the “El Perdedor” singer also wrote in Spanish on his Instagram Story. “Thank you, God. Thank you, life.”

Lopez and Wilson were spotted filming scenes at Deno’s Wonder Wheel Amusement Park at Coney Island in Brooklyn, according to Entertainment Tonight.

“Marry Me” is the film adaptation of a graphic novel by Bobby Crosby. The Kat Coiro-directed flick follows a successful pop singer who discovers moments before her wedding that her equally successful fiancé is cheating on her with her assistant. She then randomly picks an unsuspecting math teacher played by Wilson from her audience at a Madison Square Garden concert to marry her instead.

Lopez has garnered Oscar-worthy praise from many for her performance in “Hustlers,” currently in theaters. She was also tapped along with Shakira to co-headline the Super Bowl halftime show in Miami next year.

Florida sea turtle dead after eating more than 100 pieces of plastic

Westlake Legal Group Turtle-Plastic Florida sea turtle dead after eating more than 100 pieces of plastic Vandana Rambaran fox-news/science/planet-earth/pollution fox news fnc/science fnc ec4cbedf-5d5f-5841-8d3b-b796fd8b8599 article

A tiny turtle that washed up on a shoreline in South Florida is just the latest fatality of plastic pollution plaguing marine life.

Gumbo Limbo Nature Center in Boca Raton posted a picture on Facebook of the deceased turtle alongside hundreds of pieces of plastic that became lodged in its intestinal tract.

“This turtle, which would fit in the palm of your hand, had eaten 104 pieces of plastic,” the nature center said.

SPECIALLY TRAINED DOGS TRY TO SAVE THREATENED TURTLE SPECIES

Scientists warn that when plastic is dumped into the ocean as pollution, they break down into microplastics that get eaten by sea creatures.

According to Gumbo, it’s washback season, the period between August and November where young sea turtles wash ashore due to heavy winds and surf. Although volunteers and environmentalist groups attempt to rescue the turtles when they get caught on shorelines or wrapped in seaweed, they aren’t always successful because of the added dangers of pollution.

“Unfortunately, not every washback survives. 100% of our washbacks that didn’t make it had plastic in their intestinal tracts,” the center said.

“This is a sad reminder that we all need to do our part to keep our oceans plastic free.”

The Sea Turtle Conservancy estimates that over 1 million marine animals, including mammals, fish, sharks, turtles, and birds, die each year due to plastic debris in the ocean and there are likely 100 million tons of plastic in oceans around the world.

Conservationists estimate that another 60 billion pounds of pollution will be produced in 2019.

California man who fatally shot mountain lion gets 30 days in jail, 240 hours of community service

The Southern California man charged with shooting and killing a protected mountain lion this summer has been sentenced to 30 days in jail and was ordered to serve 240 hours of community service in an animal shelter after pleading guilty, prosecutors said on Thursday.

Alfredo Gonzalez, 60, of Simi Valley, Calif., will have to serve the community service at a Los Angeles County animal shelter, Senior Deputy District Attorney Karen Wold in Ventura County told Fox News.

Gonzalez will have to pay restitution that will include the cost for the collar he removed, which will be more than $2,300, Wold confirmed.

CALIFORNIA MAN CHARGED WITH FATALLY SHOOTING PROTECTED MOUNTAIN LION

Gonzalez was also placed on three years of probation and the rifle he used to shoot the mountain lion was declared a nuisance by the court and ordered to be destroyed, according to the District Attorney’s office.

“The weapon that was used was also ordered destroyed and that means it will never be used again to kill another animal,” Wold told Fox News.

Gonzalez admitted to shooting the collared mountain lion known as P-38 in the head after National Park Service biologists discovered the lion’s body in the Simi Valley area.

“The National Park Service got a mortality signal from the collar indicating that the lion was dead and they eventually went out to the location where the signal stopped and recovered the collar and discovered that it had been cut,” Wold told Fox News last month. “That’s when the Department of Fish and Wildlife started their investigation and after they located the mountain lion, they contacted our office.”

The male lion was born in 2012 and was collared four years ago, she said, adding that he mainly roamed areas of the Santa Susana Mountains and the Santa Monica Mountains.

It is illegal to kill a mountain lion in California without a permit, but there are some exceptions. Wold said mountain lions are on the verge of becoming endangered in California.

Gonzalez had been charged with two misdemeanor counts, one for the unlawful taking of a protected mammal and one for vandalism of National Park Service property over the cutting of the lion’s collar, which Wold said was “very sophisticated” and is worth more than $2,300. The collar maintained data on the mountain lion.

MOUNTAIN LION SPOTTED PROWLING CALIFORNIA NEIGHBORHOOD PROMPTS WARNING

Gonzalez’ attorney, Shanit Frydman, did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

He is expected to begin his jail sentence on October 25, followed by 30 days of work release and then 240 hours of community service.

“Because the defendant took early responsibility for his actions and has no prior criminal history I think it [the sentence] is fair and reasonable on the part of the court,” Wold said. “I think that this particular case is a great deterrent that will send a message to anyone who would want to kill a protected mountain lion.”

Ancient miniature stone tools unearthed by scientists in Sri Lankan cave

Tiny stone tools — known as microliths — were essential to the growth of our species thousands of years ago.

According to a new paper published in PLUS One, microliths seen in the Fa Hien cave in the tropical rainforests of Sri Lanka date to 45,000 years ago. Their existence at this location suggests a range of “more diverse ecological contexts” for their use by Homo sapiens, researchers believe.

The island of Sri Lanka has been seen as a vital area for examining how hunter-gatherers adapted in prehistoric times.

ANCIENT DNA PUTS BLACK DEATH’S ORIGIN IN RUSSIAN REGION

Discovering these types of artifacts in this setting is significant, according to scientists, because the tools have been most typically linked to hunting medium to large animals in grassland areas.

“Interestingly, our evidence also shows that stone tool technology changed little over the long span of human occupation, from 48,000 to 4,000 years ago,” said Andrea Picin, of the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History and co-author of the study, in a statement.

Researchers believe this is evidence that the technological adaptation practiced by these early rainforest inhabitants was very successful over the course of thousands of years.

“While we suspect that these small stone tools were used as part of projectile technologies, as we have also found for bone tools at the same site, residue analysis and impact fracture analysis is ongoing,” explained Michael Petraglia, co-corresponding author of the paper.

“Whatever the results, these miniaturized stone tools place Sri Lanka in a central position in terms of discussing technological sophistication among our species. We have essentially uncovered the ‘Upper Palaeolithic’ of the rainforest,” Petraglia added.

CNN anchor slams Pence on response to Trump-Ukraine call: ‘We all know’ that he’s ‘lying’

CNN anchor Brianna Keilar went after Vice President Mike Pence Thursday for his response to the growing controversy surrounding President Trump‘s phone call with Ukraine, accusing Pence of “lying” about his knowledge of the exchange between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

“This is a very pivotal, interesting moment in all of this. He is all in with President Trump on what the president has been saying and as the president admitted, that he asked the Ukrainian president for dirt on his political opponent, Joe Biden,” Keilar said.

Pence gave a full-throated defense of Trump’s conduct on the call to Ukraine, insisting Americans “have a right to know” if there was any wrongdoing from the Bidens.

“The American people have a right to know if the vice president of the United States, or his family, profited from his position as vice president during the last administration,” Pence told reporters in Arizona. “The fact that my predecessor had a son who was paid $50,000 a month to be on a Ukrainian board at the time that Vice President Biden was leading the Obama Administration’s efforts in Ukraine, I think, is worth looking into.”

MSNBC’S MADDOW DECLARES TRUMP WILL BE ‘IMPEACHED,’ SUGGESTS BARR, POMPEO COULD ‘FIND THEIR NECKS AT RISK’

Keilar, however, claimed that Pence had a look of “discomfort” when making those remarks and that the vice president wasn’t being truthful about what he knew about Trump’s conversation with Zelensky.

“We all know for having covered Pence for so long, that Pence is lying, and that he knows that he is,” Keilar said.

Child rape suspect wanted for more than 10 years is nabbed in Mexico

A fugitive who was on America’s Most Wanted list for more than 10 years – and had escaped custody twice – over kidnapping and rape allegations involving a Detroit girl was caught in Mexico this week, authorities said Thursday.

Corey Deshawn Gaston, 41, had eluded authorities for over a decade as a manhunt crisscrossed from Michigan to San Diego to Alabama, the Detroit Free Press reported. He is accused of being the stranger who on June 27, 2007, kidnapped a 10-year-old girl from her home in Detroit and raped her in a nearby field.

Corey Deshawn Gaston has been wanted by U.S. Marshals since 2008. (U.S. Marshals Service)

Gaston was arrested after his cellphone and DNA were found at the scene. He was released from custody after posting 10 percent of his $50,000 bond, then fled the state. U.S. marshals apprehended him in Georgia days later and brought him back to Michigan. Despite prosecutors’ wishes, he was released again on bond, though, and again left.

Federal authorities were alerted by their Mexican counterparts last month that they had arrested Gaston, the U.S. marshal for the eastern district of Michigan said in a press release.

“It brings great satisfaction when we make an arrest like this,” said U.S. Marshals Service Director Donald Washington. “Corey Gaston’s alleged horrific crimes earned him a spot on our 15 Most Wanted list. From that point forward, he was put on notice that we would never stop looking for him.

“We made good on that promise.”

OREGON ‘MONSTER’ SENTENCED TO 270 YEARS FOR SEXUAL SBUSE, TORTURE OF THREE YOUNG SISTERS

U.S. Marshal Aaron Garcia said Gaston has been uncooperative and has denied being the rape suspect.

“The fingerprints and photos we have prover otherwise,” Abdullah said. “We have the right person.”

Gaston arrived in the U.S. Thursday morning, Garcia said. He is now in Chicago, waiting to be extradited to Detroit, a process that could take up to a month.

James Franco’s acting school accused of sexually exploiting 2 women

Westlake Legal Group RT-James-Franco James Franco's acting school accused of sexually exploiting 2 women Mariah Haas Julius Young fox-news/entertainment/events/scandal fox news fnc/entertainment fnc article 17d23f08-8646-52e1-9c85-152c8cfe11a9

Two former students of James Franco‘s now-defunct acting school filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles County Superior Court on Thursday alleging the program existed mainly to provide a way for Franco and his collaborators to take advantage of young women.

Sarah Tither-Kaplan and Toni Gaal alleged in the documents — which Variety obtained — that Franco, 41, and his partners “engaged in widespread inappropriate and sexually charged behavior towards female students by sexualizing their power as a teacher and an employer by dangling the opportunity for roles in their projects.”

Per the court papers, “this led to an environment of harassment and sexual exploitation both in and out of the class.”

JAMES FRANCO ACCUSED OF SEXUAL MISCONDUCT BY 5 WOMEN, GRILLED BY SETH MEYERS

In 2014, Franco and his business partner Vince Jolivette opened Studio 4, which had branches in New York and Los Angeles, as Variety reported. Both men, along with their production company — Rabbit Bandini — and its general manager, Jay Davis, are all named as defendants in the suit, per The New York Times.

Reps for Franco and Jolivette did not immediately respond to Fox News’ requests for comment. Davis did not immediately respond. The phone number listed for Rabbit Bandini was disconnected when Fox News reached out.

The suit claimed Tither-Kaplan, Gaal and other students paid about $300 a month in tuition and in return, they were told they would have opportunities to audition for Franco and be cast in Rabbit Bandini film productions not available to anyone else. However, they allegedly found out later that was not the case as “non-students had equal access.”

FRANCO DENIES SEXUAL MISCONDUCT ALLEGATIONS ON ‘LATE SHOW’

As the Times reported, Studio 4 also included master classes that would cost an additional fee of up to about $2,000 each, including a $750 master class for sex scenes. Per the outlet, the lawsuit claimed that for the sex-scenes class, students had to audition on video so Franco could review the material later. They also allegedly had to sign away rights to the recordings.

The women further alleged they were encouraged to push beyond their comfort zones and were denied industry guidelines such as nudity riders, the report said. The suit claimd the class sought “often young and inexperienced females” who “were routinely pressured to engage in simulated sex acts that went far beyond the standards in the industry.”

JAMES FRANCO ACCUSED OF SEXUAL MISCONDUCT BY 5 WOMEN, GRILLED BY SETH MEYERS

Tither-Kaplan — who said she took the class — alleged she often was asked to appear in nude scenes or sex scenes for roles in Franco’s independent films, some of which still reportedly haven’t been released. She further claimed that once during the filming for an orgy scene, Franco removed plastic guards that covered other actresses’ vaginas while he simulated oral sex on them, the Times reported, citing the lawsuit.

Per the outlet, the suit sought monetary damages and the return of any recordings of former students, as well as to attain a class-action status that would allow others to join.

Tither-Kaplan was one of several women who came forward in 2018 with allegations of “inappropriate or sexually exploitative” behavior against Franco in a Los Angeles Times report.

At the time, Franco’s attorney, Michael Plonsker, disputed the women’s allegations to the outlet. Gaal chose to come forward for the first time, The Associated Press reported.

Blake Shelton celebrates Gwen Stefani’s 50th birthday on social media: ‘I love you so much’

There’s No Doubt that Blake Shelton is head-over-heels in love with girlfriend Gwen Stefani.

The country crooner celebrated Stefani’s 50th birthday with an adorable tribute post on social media that made fans swoon.

BLAKE SHELTON IN NO RUSH TO MARRY GWEN STEFANI, ‘CAN’T IMAGINE’ WORKING ON ‘THE VOICE’ WITHOUT ADAM LEVINE

“Happy Birthday @gwenstefani!!!! I love you so much it’s actually stupid… And possibly illegal in the state of California,” he tweeted on Thursday.

Shelton, 43, and his fellow “The Voice” judge are reaching another milestone in their relationship next month: four years of dating.

The couple first met on the set of “The Voice” in 2014 and sparks quickly flew.

GWEN STEFANI DIDN’T KNOW WHO BOYFRIEND BLAKE SHELTON WAS BEFORE ‘THE VOICE’

“It’s actually shocking that it has already been that long,” Shelton admitted to People in June. “It’s kind of a blur. It still feels like it’s pretty new to me. I guess it is, relatively. Four years isn’t forever, but man, it seems like it just happened in no time.”

If Shelton does throw Stefani a birthday party, he’d have to outdo the amazing pizza party she held at her house for Shelton’s birthday back in June. She also gifted him a huge custom-made sign for his Oklahoma ranch.

Shelton also received handmade birthday cards from Stefani’s kids. Kingston, 13, Zuma, 10, and Apollo, 5 (whom Stefani shares with ex-husband Gavin Rossdale) all spent time constructing their designs.

“Christmas, birthdays, any kind of holiday — they always sit down and take time to write a message and draw pictures or something,” he said. “Those are the coolest, coolest things, you know? It’s something I never experienced in my life. When they take time and actually make something, it’s pretty cool.”

Stefani was married to Rossdale between 2002 and 2016 while Shelton was married to Kaynette Gern between 2003 and 2006 and Miranda Lambert between 2011 and 2015.

Chinese woman caught at Mar-a-Lago with malware was apparently asked to target Clintons: docs

A Chinese businesswoman who was convicted of trespassing at President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida earlier this year had been urged by her handler to target other famous figures including the Clintons and billionaire businessman Warren Buffett, court documents say.

Yujing Zhang, 33, who is scheduled to be sentenced on Nov. 22, was caught by Secret Service agents with troves of technology embedded with malware and thousands of dollars in cash after she claimed that she was at Trump’s prestigious club to attend a “United Nations friendship event” that had apparently been canceled. Her bizarre behavior and backstory led to suspicions that she was a Chinese government spy, but she was not charged with espionage or related crimes.

Zhang apparently purchased a $20,000 travel package from Li Weitian, also known as Charles Lee, who advertised tickets on the Chinese social media site WeChat promising access to events across the U.S. to meet prominent political and business figures.

Lee ran the United Nations Chinese Friendship Association, which is not affiliated with the U.N., and was photographed at least twice with Cindy Yang, a Republican donor and former Florida massage parlor owner who organized events at Mar-a-Lago.

Upon learning that the event at Mar-a-Lago had been canceled, Lee tried to convince Zhang to attend another event on Wall Street in New York City, text messages between the pair released by the South Florida court Thursday revealed. Bill and HIllary Clinton were scheduled to be there.

“Regarding the event at the Trump’s estate, it’s been put on hold for now. We can forget about it. We have two other activities now. I sent them to you already,” Lee texted Zhang on March 26, four days before she was arrested on the Trump property.

At the time of her arrest, Zhang told federal agents that she did not know that the event had been canceled, a claim contradicted by her messages.

Lee urged Zhang to go to “Clinton’s event, Clinton and his wife Hillary,” he said, offering her a ticket for $60,000. “There are politicians and the finance people that you talked about wanting to meet in this event. You can meet with these two famous people in one setting. Hillary was the former Secretary of State, equivalent to the Prime Minister. That is very extraordinary. Er… you can stand in between them and have a photo taken.”

In the same message, Lee also says, “You can also go to Buffett’s event which is particularly for investment and finance,” referring to business mogul Warren Buffett.

Lee also explained to her why the previously scheduled Trump event was allegedly canceled.

“Regarding the Trump’s event, this is what happened. It’s because the Democratic Party has all along been fighting with the Republican Party. He is from the Republican Party. They accused Trump of colluding with Russia. Recently the investigation said Trump did not. He’s not guilty. The media is controlled by the Republic Party– eh, the Democratic Party. That’s why they are in trouble. Trump takes the revenge. So they now join together and attack Trump. … In order to minimize the nonsense, they canceled his events for the time being.”

In subsequent messages, Zhang asked Lee for her money back after hearing of the cancellation but ended up traveling from Shanghai to Florida anyway. Her motives for going to the property and lying to Secret Service agents at Mar-a-Lago remain unclear.
