Wonderwall.com is taking a look back at the stars who found love, suffered heartbreak or experienced some other major event in their love lives in early March 2021, starting with Michael Jackson's daughter and this "Into the Wild" star… Are Paris Jackson and Emile Hirsch an item? The duo sparked romance rumors on March 9 when the 35-year-old actor took to Instagram to share a sweet shot of himself cuddled up to the 22-year-old singer-songwriter at a party for Caroline D'Amore's new line of organic pasta sauces, Pizza Girl. "Hiding out with you," he wrote in the caption. But it wasn't the first time Emile has shared a cozy snap with Paris. Back on Feb. 23, he posted a shot of himself pecking her on the cheek, which he captioned, "Smile like you mean it." Michael Jackson's daughter responded in the comments section, "d'awww love you." Of course, it's entirely possible they're just friends. While addressing fans who criticized their age difference, Paris described Emile on Instagram as "actually one of the youngest homies of mine." She also made light of the buzz around their relationship status on her Instagram Story, sharing a meme of two students recreating the scene from "Spirited Away" during which No Face chases Sen. In the meme — which is captioned "P just taking a pic with guy" — No Face asks, "Is that your new boyfriend?"

The source insists that that the "Saturday Night Live" alum "has not moved in" with his "Ted Lasso" co-star and rumored girlfriend Keeley Hazell. "[He] isn't yet ready for another serious relationship," said the insider. Keely sparked rumors that she and Jason are living together when she took to her Instagram Story to share a selfie from what appeared to be the same living room from which the funnyman virtually accepted his Golden Globe on Feb. 28. (See the comparison here.) She was also seen wearing the headline-making hoodie Jason sported during the Globes. (An Us Weekly source, meanwhile, maintains that Jason and Keeley "are not dating.") In other hoodie news… During the Critics Choice Awards on March 7, Jason honored Olivia by wearing a hoodie featuring a logo for Crockett High School — the fictional school in "Booksmart," her feature film directorial debut.

I want to thank their mom — Otis and Daisy's mom Olivia — who had the initial idea to do this as a TV show. She was like, 'You … like doing that so much. You should do it as a movie or a TV show.' I was like, 'No.' She was right."
On the March 4 episode of "The Drew Barrymore Show," Travis Barker — a father of three — opened up about why his relationship with Kourtney Kardashian works: "I [used to] date girls who didn't have kids, and I find it kind of hard because they would have trouble understanding, like, 'Well, why don't you want to go to dinner every night with me?' or 'Why don't you want to see me every night?' And now, I'm spending time with a woman who's, like, a great mom, who's, like, a great friend, and you don't have to worry about any of those things, it just comes natural — it's like a maturity thing," he said. "And I also really like missing someone and cherishing the time that I spend with them, instead of, you know, every day being with them — especially in the beginning of the relationship. I think missing someone is so important." Four days later, People magazine reported that, according to a source, Kourtney and Travis work because she's "at a place in her life now where she's ready for a relationship with a more mature guy." Said the source, "Kourtney and Travis have a long, long history and years of friendship. They've felt like family for years, and she's really close with [his younger daughter] Alabama, who's just a cool rock star kid." The insider went on to describe the blink-182 drummer as "a super-smooth guy" whom "women love" but who is "not a player." Said the source, "He's really, really nice, chill and is an adult. … Her sisters love him." Meanwhile, an "Entertainment Tonight" source said that the rocker and the reality star are "in total lust over each other." Said the source, "She doesn't regret going public with their relationship at all. The relationship was a long time coming because the attraction has always been there on both sides. They love the fact that they have a true friendship and bonded that way before taking anything further and making things romantic."

Last month, Sam spoke out against the conservatorship that controls nearly every aspect of his girlfriend's life — including whether or not she can get married again or have more kids. The duo have sparked engagement rumors in the past.
Us Weekly reported on March 6 that, according to a source, Scott Disick's relationship with Amelia Gray Hamlin has gotten "pretty serious" recently. "She is over Scott's house very often and spends quite a bit of time there," said the source, adding that the father of three has known the model's parents, Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin, "for a while now" and likes that she "comes from a good family." As for the "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star and the "L.A. Law" alum, "[They] were skeptical at first, but seeing their daughter happy makes them feel better about their relationship," said the insider. According to a second Us Weekly source, "Scott and Amelia really do have so much fun together. They're a great match because they both love to go out and party and are both very attracted to each other." The second source added that Amelia "doesn't seem to mind" that her beau "speaks very often" with his former long-term partner, Kourtney Kardashian, and "still talks about [her] all the time."
Us Weekly reported on March 4 that, according to a source, Lucy Hale and Skeet Ulrich — who met through mutual friends — "have been dating for a little over a month now" and have "both fallen pretty hard for each other." Said the source, "While it's very new, they spend a lot of time together. … [They] try to see each other as much as possible. It's clear they're very into each other." The "huge age gap" (of 20 years!) between the "Pretty Little Liars" actress and the "Riverdale" alum "doesn't bother them." They reportedly have other things in common: Said the insider, "They are both kind and have a funny but dark sense of humor."
Tyrese Gibson first hinted on Instagram on March 2 that there's a new woman in his life following his late-2020 split from wife Samantha Lee Gibson: "My first lunch in 7 months," he captioned a video of a woman sitting on a park bench overlooking the ocean. He then implied he'd only recently given up on winning back his estranged missus, writing, "I gave up on trying… I felt like my heart was carved out and stepped on more than a few times… As I sat there with her… If felt good to just sit there and talk and laugh again… that moment of laughter and great vibes pulled me out of a place… I would love to know from anyone out there willing to share how long were you alone after a major breakup? And how hard was it for you to trust and try again?" Four days later, he returned to Instagram to share a video of himself looking cozy with Zelie Timothy in a nightclub. (It's unclear if she's the woman from the earlier clip.) The following day, he posted another video with the gorgeous model. Zelie, meanwhile, took to her Instagram Story to share a photo of her hand gripping Tyrese's hand, seemingly confirming suspicions they're an item.

But I remember the first moment I looked at you walking toward me and realized that somehow the rest of the world seemed to vanish when I was with you." LaToya, who separated from husband Adam Ali late last year, replied in the comments section, "Love you." She's since shared several photos and videos featuring Von on her Instagram Story.

Moving forward, Andrew and I plan to continue working on becoming the best versions of ourselves individually. We want to express our appreciation for your continued support and thank you for allowing us to share our journey," she captioned a selfie with the "Power Rangers Megaforce" actor.
"Love Island" couple Connor Trott and Mackenzie Dipman took to their Instagram Stories on March 6 to announce that they recently called it quits. "We are both young and in the early stages of our careers, and sadly those careers are keeping us in two different places. One of us is in Pittsburgh and the other is in Tucson, and neither one of us will be able to move anytime in the near future," they wrote. "So over the last couple of weeks we have started having some difficult conversations about our future. Ultimately, we both realized that our lives are moving in different directions. We have both made commitments to cities that are over 2,000 miles apart. This was not a decision we took lightly. We both have so much love for each other and had hopes that we could make this work, but relationships are all about timing, and this is just not our time. … We are unsure of what the future holds for us, but one thing is for certain, we will always have each other. And we will forever be grateful that 'Love Island' brought us together."
