Another week, another batch of romance updates! Ben Affleck is finally moving out. On May 1 — two weeks after Jennifer Garner filed divorce papers — moving trucks were spotted outside their marital home in Los Angeles. The former couple had continued to live together — her in the main house with their kids, him in the guest house — for nearly two years following their initial summer 2015 split announcement. "He found a house close by," a source told E! News. "They are both excited for the next step and they are happy that they have two loving homes for the kids." Now that things are finally moving forward, that's clearing the way for Jen to date again — and no one wants to set her up more than close friend Reese Witherspoon. "Reese loves to play matchmaker and she's on the hunt to find Jen a new man," an insider told Life & Style. "She's already planning to host dinner parties for Jen just so she can meet potential suitors." Since Reese eventually found love with talent agent Jim Toth after her marriage to actor Ryan Phillippe crumbled, she thinks Jen should take a page out of her playbook. "Reese advised Jen to go for a guy who works behind the scenes rather than another big star whose ego could get in the way of their relationship," the source added. As for Ben? "Ben is interested in dating," an insider told E! News. "He feels ready to date and will be putting himself out there."
Just a week after it was revealed that "Grey's Anatomy" star Jesse Williams was divorcing his wife of nearly five years, Aryn Drake-Lee, it's been claimed he's "definitely" moved on with actress Minka Kelly. Jesse and Minka are "definitely seeing each other," a source close to Jesse told Page Six on May 1. "They started seeing each other last year. He ended things with his wife this year. He'll be in Paris with Minka later this week. People know [about the relationship], but weren't saying anything because he was still married." Reports that friends are upset over how Jesse left his marriage — his wife, whom he was with for more than a decade, supported them for years before he made it big on television — have been percolating for days, but neither Jesse, Aryn, Minka or their reps have commented. "He's going to wake up and be like, 'What did I do?' He has two children. This isn't Hollywood, where you can say 'cut,'" added the source. "[He and Minka] are in lust."

Some celebrities aren't into their media-ascribed portmanteaus, but Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez saw "J-Rod" coming long ago. "It's fine," J.Lo told "Entertainment Tonight" at the Billboard Latin Music Awards on April 27 of the nickname she and new man A-Rod share. "We kind of thought that would happen… because people who knew us were already [saying] it. So, you guys, it's not like you were original or anything. J.Lo performed her new single "Mirate" during the telecast. "He loves it," she said when asked how Alex feels about her new tune. "I'm so excited, you know, every time I finish something, I bring it home and I want him to hear it. He's so supportive." A few days later, the pair made their red carpet debut as a couple at the Met Gala in New York City on May 1. Keep reading for more romance updates…

Chris Rock gave a very revealing interview to Rolling Stone this month in which he admits to being unfaithful on multiple occasions during the course of his 19-year marriage. The comedian and Malaak Compton-Rock separated in 2014 and divorced in 2016 amid a contentious split. He told the mag that he cheated on his wife with three different women and that he thought he was allowed to have out-of-wedlock romances because he was famous and making obscene amounts of money. "That actually goes the other way. My faults are magnified," he said. "Your significant other, if they really love you, has a high opinion of you. And you let them down." Chris is currently on his "Total Blackout Tour," which he jokingly calls the "alimony tour." There was a time during his comedy shows where he was bashing his ex and blamed the split on her. Now, though, he's realized that doing that isn't exactly kosher. "It's not fair," he told the magazine. "I have a mic, she doesn't. God forbid people are bugging her in the supermarket. That's not cool. I'm going to have to see her at weddings and graduations." The funnyman acknowledged that he was once angry at his ex, but then, "I asked myself, 'Do I want to be angry for a year?' It's not a cool place to be. It's not healthy." These days, Chris is off the market and dating actress Megalyn Echikunwoke.
Rihanna's epic Comme des Garcons look at the 2017 Met Gala wasn't the only thing about her night that had people staring. Page Six reports that RiRi was spotted getting close to Olympic fencer Miles Chamley-Watson at her Met Gala afterparty at 1Oak on May 1. "It was like they were a new couple. She was canoodling and getting chummy," a source told Page Six. "They sat together at the ball and partied at 1Oak until the place closed at 7 a.m."
Brad Pitt has opened for the first time since his marriage to Angelina Jolie imploded seven months ago in September 2016. In an interview with GQ Style released on May 3, Brad describes his journey as "self-inflicted." In the wake of Angelina's divorce filing, he said he's been listening to a lot of Frank Ocean music as well as Marvin Gaye's divorce-themed album "Here, My Dear." He also started therapy. "I love it, I love it. I went through two therapists to get to the right one," he explained. Though Brad didn't go into detail about what happened between him and Angelina, he did drop some major hints about what led to the demise of their marriage — including how there were things he wasn't dealing with and that he's since stopped drinking. "I was boozing too much. It's just become a problem," he explained. "I mean, we have a winery. I enjoy wine very, very much, but I just ran it to the ground. I had to step away for a minute. And truthfully I could drink a Russian under the table with his own vodka. I was a professional. I was good." Now, he says, it's "family first" as he and Angelina privately work through their differences to sort out custody of their six kids. "I was really on my back and chained to a system when child services was called," Brad said, referring to the investigation that took place after a now-infamous private plane incident in September (he was ultimately cleared of any wrongdoing). "And you know, after that, we've been able to work together to sort this out," Brad added. "We're both doing our best. I heard one lawyer say, 'No one wins in court — it's just a matter of who gets hurt worse.' And it seems to be true — you spend a year just focused on building a case to prove your point and why you're right and why they're wrong, and it's just an investment in vitriolic hatred. I just refuse. And fortunately my partner in this agrees. It's just very, very jarring for the kids, to suddenly have their family ripped apart."
"Morning Joe" anchors Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski are engaged, sources told Page Six on May 4. An MSNBC spokeswoman later confirmed the happy news to People magazine. The couple — who'd been out of town together for a few days — were back on the air the same morning the news made headlines and viewers couldn't help but notice that Mika was sporting a big sparkler on her left-hand ring finger. According to Page Six, Joe popped the question during a romantic trip to the south of France and Monaco that he and Mika just took to celebrate her 50th birthday. "Joe got down on one knee and proposed old-fashioned-style with a ring. Of course, Mika accepted," a source told the New York Post's gossip column, which said it took place at the Bar Bellini at the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Antibes, France. "They came back from the trip on Cloud Nine."
Moving on! Just a few weeks after splitting with Olivia Munn, Aaron Rodgers was spotted on a golf date with model-actress Kelly Rohrbach. The Green Bay Packers quarterback was photographed with the "Baywatch" movie star (and Leonardo DiCaprio ex) on April 27 at the Westchester Golf Course in Los Angeles. The two "appeared to be holding hands and looked flirty — until they noticed people watching them," TMZ reported, adding that both stars are avid golfers.
They fumbled their romance once, but it certainly appears that Victoria's Secret Angel Adriana Lima and NFL star Julian Edelman had a ball once again — at least for a night. The duo reportedly called off their romance in March, after several months of dating, after she allegedly told him that she wanted children, something he was hesitant about. But perhaps she was willing to look past that on May 1. The two reunited at the Met Gala in New York City and were spotted arriving at Rihanna's afterparty at 1OAK in the same car. TMZ reported that the two are not back on. In fact, they weren't each other's dates at the Met either. Julian arrived with fellow Patriots stud Danny Amendola and they sat at Tom Brady's table. When Adriana and Julian split, things were reportedly icy between them. TMZ reported that distance was also a factor — she lives in Miami, he lives in Boston. Adriana was linked to Mets pitcher Matt Harvey in mid-March after they were spotting on a PDA-heavy dinner date in Miami.
It's over — again. Tameka "Tiny" Harris has filed divorce papers for the second time in four months as she seeks to end her six-year marriage to rapper T.I. E! News reported that T.I. acknowledged being served on April 24. Tiny, a Grammy-winning songwriter and former member of Xscape, previously filed in December 2016, but a March divorce hearing was held up since her Grammy-winning husband had not been properly served. The reality show stars have three kids together and were also raising four more from previous relationships.
Aidy Bryant is getting married! The "Saturday Night Live" star shared the news of her engagement to former "Late Night With Seth Meyers" writer Conner O'Malley on Seth's show on April 27. "We've been together a long time — we've been together almost nine years. So a lot of the shimmer and shine has faded and we're just living every damn day as best we can," she explained, setting it up. "We've seen each other through a lot. Like, he used to work as a full-blown garbage man — not a joke, just a garbage man. I used to sweep up hair in a barber shop. I mean, we've, like, been through it." She was just getting home from work — she'd just been pitching ideas to "SNL" guest host Lin-Manuel Miranda, who was on the show in October 2016. "I had my purse and our mail and all these boxes, and I walked to our door and our dog had a bow tie on. I was like, 'My dog doesn't wear a bow tie! Where is he going tonight?'" As soon as she shut the door, Conner "frantically came around the corner and was just like, 'Will you marry me?' No box. No 'I love you.' Just a man in full terror standing very far from a dog in a bow tie, just holding a loose ring going, 'Will you marry me?!'" she said. "I was like, 'What?!' I truly couldn't comprehend what was happening, and I kept saying, 'Is this a joke? Are you doing a joke?' And then I said, 'Of course I'll marry you. I love you.' And it was really nice."
"Vanderpump Rules" star Scheana Shay filed for divorce in November 2016. On April 28, TMZ reported that she and Mike Shay had finalized the legalities of their split — and revealed who's getting what. According to TMZ, she gets to keep their 2016 Ford Explorer, which has a $49,000 note, plus a 2009 Nissan that's worth $19,000, a retirement fund worth $31,000 and a bank account that has a grand in it. Mike, meanwhile, gets the 2005 GMC Sierra. The kicker? Scheana also has to give him $50,000.
"Without a Trace" alum Anthony LaPaglia and Alexandra Henkel are engaged. She showed off her giant diamond ring at the YSL Beauty Club Takes Over Melbourne event Down Under on April 27. There's a 30-year age difference between Anthony and Alexandra, who went public with their romance three months after he and Gia Carides, his wife of 17 years, split in 2015.
Scott Disick has admitted he once proposed to ex Kourtney Kardashian, the mother of his three kids. "I think I like asked her to marry me," he told Kim Kardashian West and Khloe Kardashian on the April 30 episode of "Keeping Up With the Kardashians." "It was really weird. I don't think we told anybody. It was somewhat cute and then we just got scared about like media and this and that. And we were like, 'Let's just put the ring aside and we'll talk about it another day.' Never spoke about it again," he said.
Jana Kramer might have rekindled the flame with her estranged husband, Mike Caussin. According to E! News, the former couple was seen hanging out over the weekend at a baseball game. On April 30, the "Dancing With The Stars" alum threw out the first pitch at the Los Angeles Dodgers baseball game — and Mike was there. In August 2016, Jana announced that she and her husband of 16 months were separating. At the time, he was in rehab, but it was unclear why. A month later, Us Weekly alleged that he was seeking treatment for sex addiction after he cheated on the country cutie many times, including with a paid escort. Mike checked into a Hattiesburg, Mississippi, rehab center — the same one where Tiger Woods sought treatment for his well-documented sex addiction. An Us Weekly report at the time indicated that Mike still wanted to be with Jana and was hoping to work it out after he got out of rehab. It certainly looks like he could be on his way to getting his wish.
