Sophia Cohen engaged to financier boyfriend Jason Levine

Sophia Cohen — the 26-year-old daughter of billionaire hedge funder Steve Cohen — got engaged to her financier boyfriend Jason Levine in Montauk over the weekend.

We’re told that the couple “took the quintessential romantic long walk on the beach and ended up engaged,” with Cohen later showing off a “massive oval diamond ring.”

The two toasted the moment at a Saks-sponsored barbecue at Hero Beach Club on Saturday in front of the party’s hosts, Sara and Erin Foster.

Cohen works at top art gallery Gagosian, while Levine is a vice president at private equity firm L Catterton.

VMAs 2019: Crowd was a ‘Sucker’ for the Jonas Brothers

The remote performances that have been done over the years at the MTV Video Music Awards — this time held at Newark’s Prudential Center Monday night — have been a mixed bag.

But having New Jersey sons the Jonas Brothers perform at the Stone Pony in Asbury Park, NJ, made total sense. Looking stylish and studly, the reunited trio started off by performing their big comeback hit “Sucker” before going outside to greet squealing fans and do their new, reggae-fied single “Only Human.”

The whole thing capped off with fireworks, but the JoBros had already supplied plenty of sparks of their own.

Danish city unveils Viking crossing signals

COPENHAGEN, Denmark — It’s safe to cross when the green Viking is walking, but stop when the red one is standing. That’s the message to pedestrians in Aarhus as it unveils new crossing signals to celebrate the history of Denmark’s second-largest city.

City council member Buenyamin Simsek, in charge of technical matters, on Monday unveiled the first of 17 traffic signals featuring Vikings holding axes and shields, but no horned helmets — there is no evidence that Viking helmets really did have horns.

The lights will form a circle around downtown Aarhus, which was founded by the Vikings in the 8th century and became a bustling harbor city.
