Lauren Alaina dating comedian John Crist months after ending engagement

Lauren Alaina is back in the dating game — just a few months after ending her engagement to her high school sweetheart.

The country singer and “American Idol” alum introduced comedian John Crist as her boyfriend on “The Bobby Bones Show” Wednesday morning.

CHRISTIAN COMEDIAN JOHN CRIST GOT FIRED FROM CHICK-FIL-A FOR DOING THIS

Alaina, 24, explained the couple met after she “responded to one of his Instagram videos.”

“We call that sliding into the DMs,” Crist interjected.

The 35-year-old comedian went on to explain that, at first, he didn’t know who Alaina was, so he had to look her up and noticed a blue “verified” checkmark beside her name.

After reading her Wikipedia page, the comedian wrote back with a response about their similar background: “I too grew up performing in a church in Georgia.”

“[It] was his first response to me,” Alaina laughed. “I was like, does this guy know everything about me?”

The couple was able to move past that initial interaction and Alaina claimed she even helps Crist with his jokes.

Crist added he’s only ever made one joke about their relationship — their 11-year age gap, specifically — that he said didn’t work very well on stage.

“I’m 35, her mom is 45, and she’s 24, so I’m closer to her mom’s age than her. So when she and her mom are arguing about stuff I’m literally in the middle like, ‘Actually your mom makes some good points. You should save your money,’” Crist joked.

Only a few months after Lauren Alaina announced she was breaking off her engagement to her high school sweetheart, the country singer has revealed she is dating comedian John Crist.

LAUREN ALAINA CALLS OF ENGAGEMENT TO HIGH SCHOOL BOYFRIEND ALEX HOPKINS

As for Crist’s family, Alaina said they’re mostly just surprised at their relationship, after years of Crist focusing on his career in comedy.

“John hasn’t introduced them to a girl in 10 years so I think they’re all… they’re very shocked, I think, he’s bringing a girl around. He doesn’t do that.”

In January, Alaina announced she had ended her engagement to her high school boyfriend Alex Hopkins.

The “Road Less Traveled” songstress wrote, in part, in an Instagram message: “We want to let you know that we have decided to call off our engagement. While we still have love for each other, we’ve grown into very different people over the last six years. We are now in a place where we are each looking forward to starting our own fresh, new chapters of our lives. We both love and respect each other and hope you all will do the same. This has not been an easy decision, but we both feel it is the right decision. Thank you always for your love and support.”

Schwarzenegger defends 102-year-old being evicted

Arnold Schwarzenegger, the actor and former governor of California, on Sunday reportedly reached out to the 102-year-old Los Angeles woman being booted from her apartment where she lived for 30 years so the landlord’s daughter can move in.

Thelma Smith received a 90-day eviction notice for her month-to-month lease in early March and is now relying on friends and relatives who live on the East Coast to help her find a new place to live, The Los Angeles Times reported.

Schwarzenegger called the move “heartless” and said he’ll be reaching out to help her. He also issued a warning to landlords, saying: “You’ll hear from me, too.”

“Imagine doing this to a 102-year-old woman who gave back to the community her whole life,” the actor said onm Twitter.

The Los Angeles Rent Stabilization Ordinance says that landlords in the county can evict tenants to accommodate a relative, but they must start with the most recent resident. Smith, however, lives in unincorporated Ladera Heights where the laws are weaker. “They use this law to target long-term, low-paying tenants,” Larry Gross, the executive director for the Coalition for Economic Survival told The Times.

Olivia Jade knew parents Lori Loughlin, Mossimo Giannulli allegedly bribed her way into USC: report

Olivia Jade knew full well that her parents, Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli, participated in the college admissions scandal, a new report claims.

The 19-year-old YouTube starlet attended the University of Southern California (USC), and a source told Us Weekly that she knows exactly how she got admitted into the college.

“Olivia fully knew what her parents did to get her into USC, but didn’t think there was anything wrong with it,” the source alleged. “She didn’t get into any other California schools.”

OLIVIA JADE REPORTEDLY DISTANCES HERSELF FROM BOYFRIEND AMID COLLEGE ADMISSIONS SCANDAL

LORI LOUGHLIN’S HUSBAND MOSSIMO GIANNULLI NEVER ENROLLED IN USC, TOOK PARENTS’ TUITION MONEY

Giannulli and Loughlin were accused of paying $500,000 to admissions scam mastermind William “Rick” Singer to get Olivia Jade and sister Isabella recruited onto the USC crew team despite neither girl ever participating in rowing. The girls’ statuses at the college are currently on hold amid an internal investigation into the admissions scam.

LORI LOUGHLIN, MOSSIMO GIANNULLI DON’T LIKE BEING CALLED ‘CHEATERS’

Last week, insiders claimed that Olivia Jade — who allegedly didn’t even fill out her own application to USC — was desperate to get back into the university.

Loughlin, 54, and Giannulli, 55, pleaded not guilty to initial fraud charges and were hit with additional charges of conspiracy and money laundering. If convicted on all counts, they each face up to 40 years behind bars.

Loughlin is said to be terrified at the thought of her daughters having to testify in court.

A lawyer for Loughlin did not immediately return Fox News’ request for comment.

'Game of Thrones' critics petition Benioff and Weiss not to ruin 'Star Wars' franchise

Thousands of critics of “Game of Thrones’” just-ended, final season have signed petitions to keep its two showrunners from making the next “Star Wars” film as planned.

Petitioners are urging Disney to kick the pair off the upcoming project so that they won’t ruin that one, too.

“Putting the ‘Game of Thrones’ writers (David Benioff and D.B. Weiss) in charge of ‘Star Wars’ is not only a controversial decision but a mistake, plain and simple,” reads one petition, on Change.org, which had been signed by nearly 12,000 people by Saturday night.

‘GAME OF THRONES’ WRITERS REVEAL WHICH CHARACTER WAS INITIALLY GOING TO SURVIVE SERIES

Meanwhile, a similar petition on thepetitionsite.com was nearing its goal of 6,000 signatures.

“Like many ‘Game Of Thrones’ fans, I was dismayed at how the last season was written – it felt rushed and sloppy,” that petition reads.

“But now I’m really worried because I just learned that the next Star Wars movie will be made by the same people.“

Disney announced earlier this month that it will produce three more “Star Wars” films, which will reach theaters starting in 2022 — with Benioff and Weiss writing and producing.
