Welcome to the second week of Twas Trending, where the rumours aren't always true, but they sure are trending. We have an exciting line-up for you, so without further ado, fasten your seat belts and let's go!

Bolt's leading lady

The fastest man alive Usain Bolt 'profiled' his new girlfriend during a live TV interview on Sunday. The couple have been dating for two years, but decided to keep the relationship under wraps, until recently.

Now we know why: scores of individuals took to social media to voice their views on the union. Some offered congratulations, while others made unfavourable comments on photos and posts of the lovebirds. All in all, we commend Bolt for slowing down when it comes to matters of the heart.

Patti LaBelle's beaus up

Veteran soul singer Patti LaBelle got her groove back, she was spotted recently with her new young 'bae'. The 71-year-old looked happy as she was photographed holding on to her 41-year-old.

Dexta Daps' indecent exposure

So, Dexta Daps was given a rude awakening on his birthday when pornographic images of him were leaked on to social media. Shares upon shares circulated mainstream, with everyone wondering why the European girl, who shall remain nameless, decided to stoop to that level for the sake of celebration. One thing is for sure though, I doubt he suffered much harm when it came to his female counterparts; his package is definitely something to leave any woman 'jealous ova'.

Man gives shirt off his back to the homeless

The homeless surrounds us so much these days, sometimes, sad to say, they do go unnoticed. So it was great when a video of a man who took the shirt off his back in a subway and gave it to a homeless man came out. Not only was it trending, it was heart-warming.

Daddy not available test fails for Fabian

You know, there is just no easy way to put it. So in the DNA case of Marley vs Marley, it was announced that Fabian Marley is not the son of the late reggae legend Bob Marley. Word spread throughout social media like wild fire of the results. Now that the legal issues have been put to rest, Fabian has to now come to grips with his new reality. You don't have to be a Marley to be a singer, though. Chin up.

The cruel C

The cruel cancer recently claimed the lives of not one, not two, but three noteworthy individuals within the international entertainment industry, and fans took to social media to offer their condolences. Singer-songwriter David Bowie, actor and director Alan Rickman, and singer and manager RenÈ Angelil, your tremendous work will continue to live on for years to come - may your souls rest in peace.
