Tebow announces engagement to former Miss Universe

MIAMI

Tim Tebow is engaged.

The Heisman Trophy winner announced his engagement on Instagram Thursday to Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, a South Africa native and the 2017 Miss Universe.

The 31-year-old Tebow posted photos of himself down on one knee and 23-year-old Nel-Peters wearing an engagement ring.

Tebow quarterbacked Florida to national championships during the 2006 and 2008 seasons. He was drafted in 2010 by the Denver Broncos, where he played two seasons. He also played for the New York Jets in 2012.

Judge dismisses part of Judd lawsuit against Weinstein

LOS ANGELES

A judge has dismissed one section of Ashley Judd’s lawsuit against Harvey Weinstein, but the rest remains headed toward trial.

U.S. District Judge Philip S. Gutierrez ruled Wednesday that Judd’s sexual harassment claim isn’t within the scope of a California statute.

Gutierrez had already rejected the claim in November but allowed Judd’s lawyers to amend it, then dismissed it again.

Gutierrez said Judd’s allegations of defamation and economic interference can continue.

Judd attorney Theodore Boutrous Jr. said nothing about the ruling changes the fact that Judd’s lawsuit is moving forward.
