Another week, another batch of romance updates. Looks like Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are slowly moving in the direction of marriage! The "Suits" actress graced the cover of Vanity Fair this week for the October issue and gave the most open interview about their relationship to date. The biracial bombshell said, "We're two people who are really happy and in love. We were very quietly dating for six months before it became news, and I was working during that whole time, and the only thing that changed was people's perception." What really got tongues wagging however was when she candidly talked about the couple's future when she said, "We're a couple. We're in love. I'm sure there will be a time when we will have to come forward and present ourselves and have stories to tell, but I hope what people will understand is that this is our time." Many sources noted that with a publication as esteemed as Vanity Fair and the Royal family's history with the press, one can only assume the actress received palace approval before going on record. Feels like an engagement is imminent! Keep reading for more romance updates of the week!
Sept. 19 will mark one year since Angelina Jolie shocked the world and filed to divorce Brad Pitt, her husband of two years and partner of nearly 12. While promoting her newest directorial effort, Netflix's "First They Killed My Father," she told the Sunday Telegraph's Sept. 3 edition what she thinks of being on her own. "It's been difficult," she told the paper. "I don't enjoy being single. It's not something I wanted. There's nothing nice about it. It's just hard." On Sept. 6, In Touch reported that Brad has grown weary of the divorce dragging on as he and Angelina struggle to come to an agreement on child custody and financial issues. "[Brad] is planning on asking his lawyer to speed up the divorce," an insider told the magazine, explaining that the actor is planning to seek a bifurcation, which it describes as "a legal maneuver that, if granted by a judge, would make him and Angelina single before their custody and asset arrangements are officially settled." But it's not because Brad's eager to move on romantically with someone else. Rather, it's "about his beginning a new chapter," explained the insider. Added a source: "His life has been at a standstill while he's spent a year appeasing Angelina. He wants to move on to the next phase of his life without having his hands tied by her — and he wants it soon."
After what has felt like one of the most secretive relationships in Hollywood history, there is FINALLY some cold hard proof that Jamie Foxx and Katie Holmes are a couple! On Sept. 6, DailyMail.com published photos of the notoriously private stars holding hands while strolling along a Malibu beach on Labor Day. The pair, who are believed to have been dating since 2013, have been adamant about keeping their relationship private — one report claims it's because of a clause in Katie's divorce settlement with Tom Cruise that allegedly prevented her from dating anyone publicly for five years following their divorce. Jamie previously told "Entertainment Tonight" that rumors of the two dating were "100 percent not true" and has also called them "fake news." So much for that now! Love to see these two happy together!

Sharon Osbourne is getting real about the cheating scandal that rocked her and Ozzy Osbourne's marriage last year.

"There were six of them," Sharon told Britain's Daily Telegraph in an interview published on Sept. 2. Among the rocker's lovers, she claimed, were "some Russian teenager, then a masseuse in England, our masseuse out here, and then our cook." Sharon did not hold back when discussing the women's physical attributes, saying, "When I found out about the hairdresser, I couldn't believe it. Because none of these women were show ponies. He was doing it to fill the void in some way." Apparently, Ozzy had some real issues going on. He's admitted to being a sex addict and entered therapy just a few months after the cheating scandal emerged. The couple has since decided to give their marriage another shot. They even renewed their vows in August 2016.

Taylor, a mental health counselor, and Derek, a commercial banker, started dating immediately once they got to Mexico to film, but their relationship was put on hold while the whole Corinne Olympios/DeMario Jackson drama unfolded. During the Aug. 29 episode, fans saw the couple dealing with an emotional snag as Taylor commented that their relationship was probably benefiting from the two being forced to spend so much time together.
