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 2019, starting with this complex web of love… In late July, Brody Jenner and Kaitlynn Carter announced that they were calling it quits after just a year of non-legally-binding marriage. Then on Aug. 9, Kaitlynn was caught on camera making out with Miley Cyrus as they vacationed together in Italy. The following day, Miley and Liam Hemsworth announced that they were going their separate ways after just eight months of marriage. (Just two months earlier, she publicly denied they were on the rocks.) As the breakup turned increasingly nasty, Miley's relationship with Kaitlynn heated up — they even reportedly lived together for a brief period of time before throwing in the towel on their whirlwind romance in September. But Miley didn't stay single for long… In early October, the singer-actress was seen packing on the PDA with Cody Simpson. Almost immediately, the duo became constant fixtures at each other's sides. Liam, meanwhile, was linked to 22-year-old Australian actress Maddison Brown and then to 21-year-old Australian model Gabriella Brooks in the wake of his breakup with Miley. As for Brody… He moved on from Kaitlynn with baseball star Jose Canseco's daughter, model Josie Canseco. They were first linked in August but called it quits just two months later. In late November, Kaitlynn was seen holding hands with a mystery man, while Brody appeared to have rebounded from both her and Josie with yet another young beauty: 20-year-old Maxim model Allison Mason. Now keep reading for more of the year's biggest celeb love life updates…

Who could've guessed that Pete Davidson would be the biggest heartthrob of 2019? Following his late-2018 split from fiancée Ariana Grande, the "Saturday Night Live" star spent early 2019 enjoying a whirlwind (and very public) romance with Kate Beckinsale, with whom he first connected at a Golden Globes afterparty. They called it quits in April, but Pete didn't stay single for long: In August, he was linked to Andie MacDowell's daughter, "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" and "The Leftovers" actress Margaret Qualley. Later that month, they debuted their romance at the Venice Film Festival, but by mid-October, they were done. That's when Pete started spending time another young beauty: Cindy Crawford's daughter, model Kaia Gerber, who spent the first few months of the year dating male model Wellington Grant. By mid-November, they'd taken their friendship to the next level.

This was the story no one saw coming: In late November, Justin Timberlake became embroiled in a hand-holding scandal after he was caught on camera appearing overly touchy-feely with "Raising Dion" star Alisha Wainwright — who's playing his love interest in the upcoming sports drama "Palmer" — during a night out in New Orleans. After the photos hit the Internet, sources close to the singer-actor — who's been married to Jessica Biel since 2012 — insisted that his relationship with the former "Shadowhunters" actress is "completely innocent" and that "nothing romantic" was going on between them. Justin later released a statement admitting that he "drank way too much" and "displayed a strong lapse in judgment" but that "nothing happened" with Alisha. He also apologized to Jessica, who reportedly believes he didn't cheat on her and is "standing by" him in spite of feeling embarrassed by the whole ordeal.
Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson called it quits in mid-February amid reports that he cheated with Kylie Jenner's best friend, Jordyn Woods … along with multiple other women. It's unclear whether or not the duo, who previously weathered an April 2018 cheating scandal, were technically already broken up or on the verge of a split — as some media outlets reported — when the basketball star got physical with Jordyn, who quickly became persona non grata to the Kardashian-Jenner clan in spite of her denials that anything serious happened with Tristan. The former couple spent the rest of the year focusing on successfully co-parenting their daughter, True, as Khloe resisted Tristan's attempts to reconcile.
Miranda Lambert dropped a major bombshell in February when she announced on Instagram that she'd secretly married NYPD officer Brendan McLoughlin — whom no one even knew she was dating! The duo tied the knot in late January after a whirlwind courtship of just three months. They first connected in November 2018 — just a few days before he welcomed a child with another woman. (He was engaged to yet another woman when he had the alleged affair that resulted in the birth of his son, though he was single when he met the country queen.)
In late 2019, Channing Tatum and Jessie J called off their yearlong romance. On Dec. 19, Us Weekly reported that, according to a source, they "broke up about a month ago." According to a People magazine source, "there wasn't any drama" — the duo just "have different priorities and focuses that don't really align." The main issue? The actor needs to live in Los Angeles to be close to his daughter, while the singer prefers life in London.
Emma Stone's boyfriend of about two and a half years, Dave McCary, took to Instagram on Dec. 4 to announce that they're engaged. The "Saturday Night Live" writer-director shared a smiley selfie with the "La La Land" star holding up her hand to show off her new engagement ring.
Lady Gaga entered 2019 totally in love with her fiancé, Christian Carino. By late February, though, they'd called it quits. In the wake of the breakup — which followed questions about the nature of her relationship with her "A Star is Born" co-star and director Bradley Cooper — she was curiously linked to pal Jeremy Renner. Then in late July, Gaga debuted her rebound romance with audio engineer Dan Horton, which proved to be short-lived: By October, they'd called it quits. Christian, meanwhile, was linked to high-profile publicist Robin Baum in August.
In late February, Kylie Jenner's relationship with Travis Scott hit a major speed bump when she reportedly accused him of cheating after discovering inappropriate DMs with other women on his phone. (He "strongly denied" any infidelity.) Though the duo briefly worked through their differences, they ultimately called it quits in the fall amid her ongoing trust issues and their inability to reconcile their different lifestyles. In the wake of the breakup, multiple media outlets reported that sources close to the pair believed they'd eventually rekindle their romance — even as the rapper denied reports that he had a years-long affair with Instagram personality Rojean Kar. Kylie, meanwhile, shot down rumors that she and ex-boyfriend Tyga were dating again after they were seen in the same place at the same time twice within a week. Once the tabloid media moved on from the Tyga narrative, Kylie was linked to longtime Kardashian family friend Drake — for weeks, there were conflicting reports about the nature of their relationship.
Just hours after they attended the 2019 Billboard Music Awards on May 1, Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas officially became husband and wife in a ceremony officiated by an Elvis impersonator in Las Vegas. They had a bigger wedding for family and friends at the Château de Tourreau in Provence, France, on June 29.
Multiple media outlets reported in late June that Camila Cabello and dating columnist Matthew Hussey had called it quits after more than a year of coupledom. Almost immediately, the former Fifth Harmony singer was linked to her "Señorita" collaborator, Shawn Mendes. They spent most of early July confirming the romance rumors with a series of PDA-packed outings. They were still going strong by the end of the year.
In mid-January, Chris Pratt announced that he and Katherine Schwarzenegger were set to wed. Less than five months later — after a courtship of just a year — they tied the knot at the San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, California.
In August — just three months after they finally took their relationship public at the 2019 Met Gala — the news broke that Jamie Foxx and Katie Holmes had called it quits. In the wake of their split, the Oscar winner was linked to 26-year-old waitress and fitness model Dana Caprio and to singer Sela Vale — though he claimed he'd simply taken her under his wing as she launched her career in the music biz.
In 2019, Kristen Stewart found "the one": writer-actress Dylan Meyer, to whom she was first linked in August following a brief reconciliation with former love Stella Maxwell. (Kristen and Stella first split in late 2018, around the time Kristen was seen with wardrobe stylist Sara Dinkin, though that relationship proved to be short-lived.) In early November, the former "Twilight" star said she's planning to propose to Dylan.
After months of teasing their upcoming nuptials, Nicki Minaj and her controversial boyfriend of less than a year, Kenneth "Zoo" Petty, finally tied the knot in front of just one person — a minister — at a private residence in Los Angeles on Oct. 21.
Demi Lovato entered 2019 in the midst of a relationship with clothing designer Henry Levy, with whom she was first seen in November 2018. But it wasn't meant to be: By early March, they'd called it quits. She didn't stay single for too long, though! Just weeks after ending a brief courtship with Bachelor Nation's Mike Johnson, the singer-actress debuted a hot new romance: She took to Instagram on Nov. 12 to reveal her relationship with model Austin Wilson (pictured), the 25-year-old son of Z-Boys of Dogtown skateboarder George Wilson. But by the end of the year, however, that romance had ended too, People magazine reported on Dec. 21.
Ben Affleck kicked off 2019 by reconciling with "Saturday Night Live" producer Lindsay Shookus, from whom he initially split in mid-2018. The rekindled romance proved to be short-lived, though: By mid-April, they'd called it quits for the second time. In the fall, the A-list actor had started dating again. In late October, there were reports that he was seeing musician Katie Cherry — a film composer who counts Tara Reid among her closest friends — whom he met on Raya, an uber-exclusive dating app for the rich and famous. (She was reportedly on hand during his Oct. 26 sobriety setback at a Halloween party in West Hollywood.) As for Lindsay… She's been linked to longtime pal Jon Hamm on multiple occasions since she split from Ben.

On Dec. 13, E! News published a statement from a representative for Colin Firth and his wife of 22 years, Livia Giuggioli, announcing that they're calling it quits. The past few years haven't been easy for the duo, who share two teen children: In early 2018, an Italian newspaper revealed that during a 2015 break from their marriage, Livia had a yearlong relationship with Italian journalist Marco Brancaccia, whom she accused of stalking her after she called off the romance to reunite with her husband. Marco then sued Livia for falsely accusing him of a crime, insisting that she made up the stalking claims as a cover for their affair.
Teresa Giudice rang in 2019 with a younger man, Blake Schreck, with whom she was seen frequently throughout the remainder of the year. In February, they were caught on camera holding hands, fueling rumors that the reality star was cheating on her husband, Joe Giudice, as he served time behind bars — rumors she's continuously denied. But Joe had more to worry about than Blake: Early in the year, Teresa made it clear that if her husband were deported to his native Italy after he completed his prison sentence, they'd call it quits. Ultimately, a judge gave Joe the boot, though it wasn't immediately clear what would become of him and Teresa when he settled in Italy in October. In late November, the mother of four said their relationship was "to be determined" and that they were "taking it day by day." In December, multiple media outlets reported that the pair had officially "separated," though a source told People magazine, "there are no plans for divorce" at this time.
Hilary Duff took to Instagram on May 9 to reveal that she and singer-songwriter Matthew Koma were engaged. The duo — welcomed a daughter, Banks, in October 2018 — quietly tied the knot at their Los Angeles home seven months later on Dec. 21.
It truly was the most dramatic season of "The Bachelorette" yet! Hannah Brown accepted a proposal from Jed Wyatt on the finale of Season 15, which aired on July 30. But during the live "After the Final Rose" special, the former beauty queen revealed that she gave the aspiring musician the boot in mid-June — five weeks after they got engaged in Greece — when his ex-girlfriend, Haley Stevens, told several media outlets that they were still a couple when he left to appear on the show and that he ghosted her when he got back from shooting. (In late June, Haley learned that Jed actually cheated on her before he left to appear on "The Bachelorette.") In the wake of his breakup from Hannah, Jed moved on with model Ellen Decker, while Hannah competed on (and won!) season 28 of "Dancing With the Stars" — and sparked romance rumors with her partner, Alan Bersten. Meanwhile, Hannah's second runner-up, Peter Weber, was cast to star on the upcoming 24th season of "The Bachelor" … even though model Calee Lutes said in July that in late 2018, the pilot suddenly ended their long-distance relationship of five months so that he could appear on "The Bachelorette." She also alleged that — like Jed — after he made his reality TV debut, "multiple people" reached out to tell her that Peter was seeing other women while they were exclusive. As for Hannah's first runner-up…
Following her breakup from Jed Wyatt, Hannah Brown had a sleepover with Tyler Cameron, the runner-up from her season of "The Bachelorette." But within days, the male model started seeing Gigi Hadid, who entered 2019 single after parting ways with off-and-on love Zayn Malik in late 2018. Their whirlwind romance proved to be short-lived, though: By early October, they were done. Tyler didn't stay single for long, though: In late November, he started spending time with Kylie Jenner's BFF, Stassie Karanikolaou.
In April, Wendy Williams confirmed that she and Kevin Hunter were calling it quits after more than two decades of marriage. Later, the TV star confirmed that her husband had an affair that resulted in a pregnancy. She also implied that she and Kevin may have been able to move past his infidelity if he hadn't welcomed a daughter with his mistress. In July, Wendy claimed to have a new boyfriend — a doctor who's been married before and has kids in their 20s — though little is known of the alleged relationship. In late November, she shot down rumors that she was dating the late Whitney Houston's former best friend and lover, Robyn Crawford.
In August — two months after he was seen kissing another woman — there were reports that Joshua Jackson and his girlfriend of less than a year, actress Jodie Turner-Smith, had picked up a marriage license from a Beverly Hills courthouse. In November, when the duo made their red carpet debut as a couple while sporting what appeared to be wedding rings, they sparked rumors that they'd actually quietly tied the knot earlier this year. In mid-December, multiple outlets including Us Weekly and People magazine confirmed that the stars had indeed quietly wed. Us Weekly further reported that there's even more happy news for the pair: A source told the magazine that the "Queen and Slim" star is pregnant with their first child.
Johnny Depp kicked off 2019 by stepping out with a new girlfriend: Russian dancer-choreographer Polina Glen, who's reportedly in her mid-20s. Things got serious fast for the age-mismatched duo, who quickly began living together in the A-list actor's Los Angeles home. But it wasn't meant to be: Polina reportedly dumped Johnny in the fall and moved back to her native Russia.
Chris Martin and Dakota Johnson made headlines when they suddenly split in May. Their separation proved to be short-lived, though: They'd reconciled by late July — reportedly at the urging of the Coldplay frontman's ex-wife, Gwyneth Paltrow.

In late March, Nicolas Cage and his girlfriend of a few years, Erika Koike, tied the knot at a Las Vegas casino. Just four days after they exchanged vows, the actor filed to have the marriage annulled. In late May, a judge signed off on their divorce after Erika successfully argued that they didn't qualify for an annulment because Nic asked her to give their marriage another go less than two weeks after he filed — thus proving the marriage was the real deal.
In late November, Justin Hartley shockingly filed to divorce his wife of just two years, Chrishell Stause. Oddly, he filed his legal paperwork without a lawyer and listed their date of separation as July 8 — even though they've been photographed looking happy together several times since then, including at the 2019 Emmys in September and at a Golden Globes event on Nov. 14. Both moves indicated that something curious led to the sudden split. In Chrishell's response to the actor's divorce filing, she listed their date of separation as Nov. 22 — the day he filed to legally end their marriage, indicating that she'd been blindsided by the breakup. She reportedly believes money is the source of the separation-date drama.
Nikki Bella kicked off 2019 by taking her relationship with her former "Dancing With the Stars" partner, Artem Chigvintsev, to the next level. It wasn't until months later — after much initial reticence — that she finally felt comfortable referring to the professional dancer as her boyfriend. They've gotten pretty serious since then.

In late April — four months before she finalized her divorce from Roger Mathews — Jenni "JWoww" Farley revealed that she was seeing someone new: much younger family friend Zack Clayton Carpinello. The duo got serious quickly but called it quits in mid-October when an episode of "Jersey Shore: Family Vacation" showed him getting handsy with Angelina Pivarnick during a night out in Las Vegas. Their breakup proved to be short-lived, though: By mid-December, they'd officially reconciled.
Emma Roberts and Garrett Hedlund first stepped out together in March, signaling that her off-and-on relationship with Evan Peters had come to an end (again). Speaking of the "American Horror Story" star…
Evan Peters and Halsey were first linked in late September, indicating that her romance with musician Yungblud had come to an end.

David Foster and Katharine McPhee, who's 35 years his junior, tied the knot at the Church of Saint Yeghiche in London on June 28.

In June, news broke that back in the summer of 2018, Meghan King Edmonds caught husband Jim Edmonds sexting a woman known as the "Baseball Madam" while the reality star was pregnant with their twins. The former professional baseball player denied that he was ever physical with the other woman, and despite the breach of trust, he and Meghan were able to move forward with their relationship… until October, when he filed to divorce her after she accused him of carrying on an inappropriate relationship with one of their children's four nannies. (Both Jim and the nanny denied they've ever been anything more than friends.) The estranged spouses — along with the nanny and Jim's adult daughter, Hayley — spent the next few weeks running their mouths on social media and to the press about the drama, which cooled in early November when the former star of "The Real Housewives of Orange County" said she had no intention of reconciling with Jim — despite his earlier insistence that he planned to "make it right" between them.
Bella Thorne started 2019 on a sad note: In February, the polyamorous actress announced that her relationship with Tana Mongeau had come to an end. Just two months later, Bella and Mod Sun also parted ways. (Bella's relationships with the YouTube star and the rapper both kicked off simultaneously in 2017.) She didn't stay single for long, though: The same month she and Mod Sun called it quits, Bella was seen smooching Italian pop singer Benjamin Mascolo of Benji & Fede. Then in October, she debuted a new girlfriend: production assistant Alex Martini. (Benjamin is on board with the romance.) As for Tana and Mod Sun… Tana started seeing Jake Paul and "married" him in late July — just a month after their surprise engagement. (The marriage isn't legally binding.) And Mod Sun spent most of the year publicly feuding with Bella. In June, he revealed that while they were together, they actually got married… though once again, the wedding was not legally binding.
Bella Hadid and The Weeknd called it quits (again) in mid-2019.

It was a whirlwind 2019 for Porsha Williams and her fiancé, Dennis McKinley: They called it quits over the summer — just a few months after their daughter was born — amid reports that he cheated. At first, they denied the infidelity rumors — and even reconciled. But then, as Porsha revealed on a mid-November episode of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta," Dennis admitted during a therapy session that he cheated on her while she was pregnant. They spent the rest of the summer and fall working on their relationship. By the holidays, they were officially engaged again.
Pamela Anderson kicked off 2019 by reconciling with soccer star Adil Rami — reportedly against her friends' wishes — from whom she'd split in September 2018. It didn't take long for the public to learn why her pals were so opposed to the union: In June, the former "Baywatch" actress accused her off-and-on boyfriend of more than two years of domestic violence and of cheating on her with French model Sidonie Biemont — with whom he shares young twin sons. Later, the French athlete denied the abuse allegations but admitted that he was seeing both women at the same time, writing that he "should have been more transparent in this ambiguous relationship."

In August, David Harbour stepped out with Lily Allen, indicating that his relationship of more than a year with "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" star Alison Sudol had come to an end.

Since then, the pair have become increasingly comfortable sharing their romance with the world.

She wasn't the only Housewife who got engaged this year: "The Real Housewives of Orange County" star Vicki Gunvalson and Steve Lodge got engaged in April, "The Real Housewives of New York City" star Tinsley Mortimer and off-and-on love Scott Kluth got engaged in November, and "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Cynthia Bailey and sports journalist Mike Hill got engaged in July — the same month "The Real Housewives of Potomac" star Katie Rost announced that she'd accepted a marriage proposal from her boyfriend of less than a year, Jesse, though they'd called it quits by mid-December.

Meanwhile, "The Real Housewives of Dallas" star LeeAnne Locken married her love of a decade, Rich Emberlin, in April.
Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and off-and-on love Jen Harley spent most of 2019 breaking up and making up. But things finally took a major turn in their relationship in the fall when the mother of two publicly accused the "Jersey Shore" star of cheating on her, indicating that they'd called it quits (again). Then on Oct. 3, the notoriously volatile pair were photographed holding hands during a daytime outing in Beverly Hills. Later that evening, Jen accompanied Ronnie to a launch party for his new line of CBD-infused products. At the event, during which the duo packed on the PDA for all to see, he gushed to Us Weekly that although "everyone thinks we're toxic, she really does balance me out." But just hours later, they were involved in a physical altercation that ended with the reality star's arrest for alleged domestic violence. Following the incident, the police issued an emergency protective order barring Ronnie from going within 100 yards of Jen until Oct. 11. What happens next between them is anyone's guess, but on Oct. 10, TMZ reported that the two had both independently decided that they're done for good this time.
In February, Danielle Staub finalized her extremely contentious divorce from her husband of just 10 months, Marty Caffrey (pictured).

In early July, a rep for La La Anthony said that the "Power" star was "proceeding with legal discussions as the next step" in her off-and-on marriage to Carmelo Anthony. (They separated in early 2017 amid reports that he'd been unfaithful but reconciled in the summer of 2018.) The duo had stoked another round of breakup rumors in June when the actress celebrated her birthday with friends in New York City as the basketball star spent time with swimsuit-clad Swedish-Moroccan model Sara Smiri on a yacht off the coast of France. At the time, Melo denied that he and the beauty — whom he described as a married friend — were having an affair. (There were conflicting reports about whether or not she's actually married.) La La, meanwhile, publicly shrugged off her husband's absence from her birthday festivities, though Page Six reported that she was secretly "a wreck" over her husband's perceived infidelity.

Diddy and Lori Harvey — who was previously linked to the rapper's son, Justin Combs — spent the first half of 2019 sparking romance rumors. By August, it was clear that the young model and the music mogul were more than friends. Their romance proved to be short-lived, though: In mid-October, after they mysteriously unfollowed each other on Instagram, there were reports that they'd quietly called it quits. Further fueling the breakup rumors, Diddy was seen dining with a mystery blonde at Nobu in Los Angeles on Oct. 11. The following week, Lori and alleged former fling Future sparked rumors that they were dating again when they took to their Instagram Stories to share photos of what appeared to be the same location in Malibu.

How could we forget this drama?! In July, The Band Perry dropped new song "The Good Life" — on which frontwoman Kimberly Perry sings about the infidelity she experienced during "a toxic and incredibly difficult time" in her life. Though she stopped short of explicitly saying that her ex-husband, J.P. Arencibia, served as the inspiration for the track, the blonde beauty made it clear during an interview with People magazine that, based on the timeline, she's talking about the former MLB catcher.

Nicole Murphy made headlines in late July when she was caught on camera kissing Antoine Fuqua — who's been married to actress Lela Rochon for two decades — at a hotel pool in Italy. On a late September episode of "The Wendy Williams Show," Eddie Murphy's former missus said she regretted smooching the married "Training Day" director. She also apologized to his wife and family.

It was a rough year for Jana Kramer and her husband, Mike Caussin. Even though she promised in February that she wouldn't talk about his infidelity issues on their "Whine Down" podcast anymore, on the March 25 episode, they revealed that in the spring of 2018, the former professional football player suffered a relapse in his battle with sex addiction. Said the singer-actress of the incident, "It wasn't physical out of the marriage. … We're just basically happy that someone didn't show up. … I showed up at the hotel instead." But that wasn't the end of the drama for Jana and Mike, who maintains he hasn't had "sex outside of the marriage" or had "any other affairs since" he first went into treatment for his issues with sex addiction. In June, the couple revealed that they'd been sleeping in separate bedrooms after getting into a major "blowup" on their second night in their new home in Nashville. Then in October, they suffered a major setback when Jana found a topless photo of another woman on Mike's Apple Watch. Ultimately, the mother of two determined that a bot account texted the photo to her husband, but that didn't stop her from feeling betrayed by how he handled the situation: He deleted the photo from his phone and kept the situation to himself rather than telling her what happened. They spent the rest of the month publicly hashing out her trust issues. By the end of the year, however, it seemed as though they'd gotten to a much better place.

It was a big year for Bachelor Nation! Four couples got married this year: Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham — who fell for each other on season 22 of "The Bachelor" and got engaged after he dumped his first pick, Becca Kufrin, after proposing to her — kicked things off by tying the knot in Hawaii in January. Then Rachel Lindsay and Bryan Abasolo, who got engaged on the finale of season 13 of "The Bachelorette" in 2017, wed in Mexico in August — the same month Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon, who got engaged as "Bachelor in Paradise" cameras rolled in mid-2018, exchanged vows in Rhode Island.

Three more couples — Hannah Godwin and Dylan Barbour, Demi Burnett and Kristian Haggerty, and Katie Morton and Chris Bukowski — got engaged on the finale of season 6 of "Bachelor in Paradise," which aired in mid-September. By late October, however, Demi and Kristian had called it quits.

Here's more of the biggest Bachelor Nation love news of the year: In September — after her father, Todd Chrisley, alleged that Lindsie Chrisley had "extramarital relationships" with Robby Hayes and Josh Murray — Robby confirmed that he "had a fling" with the married former "Chrisley Knows Best" star.

During the spring, Derek Peth briefly romanced "The Hills" star Stephanie Pratt. In April, Kendall Long and Joe Amabile, who connected on season 5 of "Bachelor in Paradise" in 2018, moved in together.
