Angelina Jolie sparked rumors that she might be reconciling romantically with her first husband, actor Jonny Lee Miller, when she visited his New York City apartment building twice in one week. (See photos here.) On June 11, she was snapped arriving with a bottle of wine and then leaving three hours later. Four days later, she returned with her 17-year-old son, Pax Jolie-Pitt, and a bodyguard. The "Hackers" co-stars, who married in 1996 and separated the following year, have remained friendly over the years. Angelina once said there was "a very good possibility" they "could get married again sometime in the future." She's also said that she'll "always love" the "Elementary" actor. Hey, if Bennifer could find a way back to each other after almost two decades apart, is anything really off the table…?
Another week, another wild rumor about Brad Pitt's love life! On June 15, Deux Moi reported that, according to an anonymous source, the A-list actor has been dating Lykke Li "for quite some time." A second source, however, insisted that according to the Swedish singer-songwriter's friends, the romance rumor "couldn't be further from truth." And a third source claimed the Oscar winner is "currently single." So we're taking this rumor with a hefty grain of salt … although stranger things have happened this year!
DailyMail.com reported on June 11 that 46-year-old "American Idol" host Ryan Seacrest is dating 23-year-old Instagram model Aubrey Paige.

Aubrey has also reportedly shared photos of herself posing in Ryan's home on her now-private Instagram account.
That was fast! After a June 11 dinner date in West Hollywood, Jana Kramer was snapped holding hands with Bachelor Nation's Graham Bunn — who competed for DeAnna Pappas' heart on season 4 of "The Bachelorette" in 2008 and then appeared on the second season of "Bachelor Pad" and on the first season of "Bachelor in Paradise." Earlier that day, the "One Tree Hill" alum told E!'s "Daily Pop" that she and the former reality star, with whom she's "been friends for like seven years," are "in an entanglement." Said the singer-actress, who just split from husband Mike Caussin in April, "We are still friends and we're just friendly. … We are dancing the line of friends … and I am happy." On the June 10 episode of "Daily Pop," she said she was "still single" but "entertaining things." (Now it's clear who she's been entertaining!) Said the mother of two, "I love love. I will always fight for it. … I deserve the greatest, biggest love and am excited for it."
Padma Lakshmi was snapped smooching a mystery man in New York City on June 14. (See photos here.)

A source later confirmed the breakup to Page Six, noting that the "Top Chef" host split from the venture capitalist "shortly after the New Year" and that the breakup "was very amicable." Said the source, "They are intent on staying the best of friends and remain like family. … [They] are still very close and are committed to co-parenting their daughter, Krishna, who has always been their first priority." (Padma and Adam, by the way, shot down engagement rumors in mid-2019.) As for her mystery man… Page Six revealed his identity — writer and poet Terrance Hayes — on June 16. "It's early days. They're just getting to know each other," said a source.

Should we take this as an official confirmation? Following nearly two years of questions about the nature of their relationship, Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott certainly seemed like a couple while posing with their daughter, Stormi Webster, on the red carpet at the Parsons Benefit in New York City on June 15. (It's the first time they've walked a red carpet together since the August 2019 premiere of his Netflix documentary — they split just two months later.) While accepting an award later in the evening, the rapper gave a special shoutout to his partner and their little girl: "Stormi, I love you, and, Wifey, I love you," he reportedly said. According to a People magazine spy, the off-and-on couple were "being very sweet and cute together" during the event. "They were holding hands and seemed fully back on," said the spy. According to an E! News source, the duo "still have separate houses and are not living together, but they are romantic again and seem very happy with the direction they are headed." Added the E! insider, "Kylie and Travis are very happy and acting like a couple again. They hold hands and are affectionate. They aren't shy about showing their love for another. They support each other and are a constant in each other's lives." Echoed a second E! source, "[They] have been spending a lot of time together in the last few months and have grown really close. They picked up right where they left off. Neither of them has been interested in anyone else over the last year and really love being a family unit together. … Travis is enamored by Kylie and would do anything for her and Stormi. He really wanted her back and has been trying for weeks now. Kylie loves seeing Travis as a dad and is grateful they can make it work for Stormi. They have a great thing going right now and are really happy. They have truly always loved each other but needed a break during a busy time in their lives to figure it all out."
In other possible-secret-wedding news… Kat Denning sparked rumors she'd quietly married Andrew W.K. when she took to Instagram on June 13 to share a photo of herself looking cozy with the rocker as he sported what appeared to be a wedding band. The "WandaVision" actress also appeared to be wearing a diamond-encrusted wedding band alongside her engagement ring in a photo she shared on Instagram on May 30. If they did tie the knot … just a month after announcing they're engaged … it would be a perfectly on-brand move for the fast-moving couple.
"Orange Is the New Black" alum Taryn Manning accepted a marriage proposal from Cline Street frontwoman Anne Cline on June 11. According to TMZ, the singer-songwriter popped the question during her performance at a bar and grill in Panama City, Florida.

Getting serious! On June 10 — a year and a half after Liam Hemsworth and Gabriella Brooks were first linked — the Australian actor finally made their relationship Instagram official.

In other social media debut news… On June 13, Madison LeCroy made her relationship with her new boyfriend Instagram official. "Madhappy," she captioned a slideshow of photos with her beau, whose name she's keeping under wraps. She later told Us Weekly they met at a bar in Scottsdale, Arizona, "a little over two months ago" while she was in town for a bachelorette party and he was celebrating a friend's birthday. "We immediately lock eyes from across the room. It was like instant," said the "Southern Charm" star, gushing that "you really can't miss" her mystery man because "he's absolutely stunning." As she and her friends were moving on to the next bar, he beelined for her. "He's like, 'What is your name? I've got to take you out. I need your number. I've got to see you again,'" she recalled. "I said, 'You can take me out, but you'll have to take me out in Charleston, South Carolina.' And he says, 'I'm fine with that. When are you available?' … [A few days later] he sends me a video and he goes, 'Charleston is beautiful. The weather is great here.' And I'm, like, 'No f****** way did this guy just show up here.' So, you know, me and all my [friends] start doing background checks and we start running his number and making sure he's not a serial killer or anything." They went on their first date the next day and "fell in love instantly." Madison and her beau have "been together pretty much non-stop since then." He's even met her son and gotten the stamp of approval from her friends and ex-husband. "This is definitely the most grown-up relationship that I've ever been in, and it comes with a level of respect on both sides — and he's actually a man," she said. "He's 35, so yeah, he has his [life] together and is very respectful. … [It's] going very, very well. … My son's father knows a lot about [my boyfriend] through my son and my son saying that I seem happy and 'He's really nice to Mom,' and all these things. One of my favorite things about him was on Mother's Day, he sent flowers to my house and said that they were from my son. Very sweet. Very thoughtful. And his family's wonderful as well. I'm very excited about this." Madison also told Us Weekly that she "had nothing to do" with Jennifer Lopez's April split from Alex Rodriguez amid reports he was unfaithful. "I think everybody knows that. And if you don't know that, then that's just ridiculous," she said, adding that she's happy to tell her side of the story on the upcoming eighth season of "Southern Charm." She's "not bothered" by the prospect of opening up about what went down with A-Rod, she said, and will happily "tell the truth" because she's "innocent in that sense."
Us Weekly reported on June 16 that, according to a source, "an engagement could be right around the corner" for Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker.

I wouldn't be surprised if it took place at their favorite place in the world, Disneyland, in front of the kids and family," said the source.
Kendall Jenner and her boyfriend, Devin Booker, took to their Instagram Stories on June 12 to publicly celebrate their first anniversary. The model shared two PDA-packed shots of herself and the professional basketball player: One pic shows her cuddling her beau from behind as they sit on a kitchen counter while playing with his dog. The other shows her curled up in his lap as they fly on a private jet. The athlete, meanwhile, shared three tributes to his girlfriend: A solo shot of Kendall that he captioned "365" (as in 365 days in their first year together), a shot of them swimming together that he captioned "52" (as in 52 weeks in a year), and a shot of a sunset at a seaside restaurant that he captioned "1."
Page Six reported on June 16 that, according to a source, Kanye West "always had a thing" for his rumored new girlfriend, Irina Shayk, who quickly "came to mind" after he and Kim Kardashian officially called it quits earlier this year. "He decided to shoot his shot, and it worked," said the source. Irina, meanwhile, "is a very hands-on mother" to the little girl she shares with her former long-term partner, Bradley Cooper, and "won't let a new romance distract her from her daughter." Said the source, "It's perfect that things [between them] are very casual and laid back at the moment. They're still getting acquainted, but the spark is definitely there, and Kanye likes where things are headed." Echoed an Us Weekly source, "Kanye and Irina are in a honeymoon, lovey-dovey phase right now. They're getting to know each other and having a lot of fun. It's not serious yet, but they like each other a lot." The insider added that there's a parallel between the way Kanye fell for Kim and the way he became interested in Irina: "The romance was similar," said the source. "[He saw Irina in 2010] and thought she was gorgeous. He always thought she was special and she held a place in his mind." A second Us Weekly source said that Kim is "genuinely happy" for Kanye and "wants him to move on." Said the source, "She thinks Irina is a great fit for him." The rapper's friends are also "happy that he's moved on and has someone new," though they "don't know if this will last or if it's a fling."
Meanwhile, on the "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" series finale, which aired on June 10, Kim Kardashian shed some more light on why she ultimately walked away from her marriage with Kanye West. "I never thought I was lonely," she said. "I always thought, 'That's totally fine. I could just have my kids. My husband moves from state to state and I'm just on this ride with him.' And I was OK with that. And then after turning 40 this year, I realized, like, no, I don't want a husband that lives in a completely different state. I thought, 'Oh my God, that's when we're getting along the best.' But then that is sad to me, and that's not what I want. I want someone that we have the same shows in common. I want someone that wants to work out with me." She then said that she worked out with sister Khloe Kardashian and her boyfriend, Tristan Thompson, every day for nearly a year during quarantine. "I was third-wheeling it … and I was so envious of [what they had]," she said. "I was like, wow, it's like the little things [that] I don't have. I have all the big things. I have the extravagant everything you could ever possibly imagine, and no one will ever do it like that. I know that. And I'm grateful for those experiences. But I think I'm ready for the smaller experiences that I think will mean a lot." She added that she was feeling "numb" and "tired" but also "so excited" to be free to pursue "pure happiness."
During an interview with Adam Newell that debuted on YouTube on June 10, Falynn Guobadia said that Porsha Williams isn't responsible for the implosion of her marriage to Simon Guobadia. "No one has that power over my life, my husband's life, and our marriage. Simon and I were the ones who were married to one another. We're the ones who created a family together and built a life with one another. I blame the both of us. He is to blame, I am to blame, and that is all. Whatever came after that — not saying it was right, not saying it was wrong — but, no, no one has that power," she said, adding that she found out about Simon and Porsha's engagement at "the same time as everyone else" and that she didn't believe the news at first. "I said, 'No, my husband is a lot of things, but he would never do that to me. That is just not who he is,'" she recalled, according to People magazine. The "Real Housewives of Atlanta" newbie went on to say that "everything started to change" between her and Simon after they appeared on the Bravo show. "I don't think it was the show's fault … but it seems as though other things were going on that I didn't necessarily know about. I'm still at a loss at that part. I don't necessarily have the answers," she said. "Marriages are not easy. … Within our marriage, it was hard work. When it came to my marriage, like most women, I was very tenacious. I worked damn hard to keep my marriage. … It's just like he gave up. I tried. I can go down the list of all the things I tried to make sure that my husband was happy and that I was happy at the same time and that the children were happy. Women, we hold a lot of responsibility. I don't think I came up for air until Simon and I separated." She then alleged that during couples therapy, Simon refused to confirm or deny he'd been unfaithful. (She claimed she never strayed from the marriage, as Simon has alleged.) "I don't know who I was married to," she continued. "It all just sucks. It hurts. … I meant what I said when I took my vows and I meant what I said when I told Simon I loved him unconditionally. If he's happy, then I don't care. … If my husband is happy, then OK. It hurts. It hurts like hell," she continued. She also said she believes that "everything happens for a reason" and that her "knight in shining armor is out there and hopefully he'll come in due time." Falynn concluded by saying she's "done dating rich guys." Said the reality star, "He was the first wealthy man I have ever been with and I think I am ready to be with somebody who just knows how to respect me and love me back the way I love. Because I love hard. I love really hard. Someone better is out there who can respect that and I have to be positive because my children depend on it."
Rob Riggle has a new girlfriend! The news came to light after the former "The Daily Show" correspondent filed legal documents accusing his estranged wife, Tiffany, of spying on him via a hidden camera in his home office and of stealing $28,000 in cash from him. According to TMZ, the actor grew suspicious of his ex when it became clear she had knowledge of conversations he shared in private with his new love — whose identity has yet to be revealed. He and his girlfriend ultimately staged fake conversations to test his theory, which he further proved when he found a hidden camera in a smoke detector. Footage recovered from the camera (more than 10,000 videos total) shows Tiffany installing the device and also counting cash while sitting on the floor in Rob's office, it's been alleged. He's also accused his ex of hacking into his Apple account and downloading his emails, texts, contacts and photos. The "21 Jump Street" actor believes his estranged missus — who filed for divorce in October 2020 following more than two decades of marriage — has been spying on him since August 2020. He's been granted a temporary restraining order against her.
