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 late October 2020, starting with this not-so-surprising split… On Oct. 23, 27-year-old German model Nicole Poturalski was seen in public with her husband, 68-year-old restauranteur Roland Mary, for the first time since she was linked to Brad Pitt in late August. The age-mismatched duo, who reportedly have an open marriage, were snapped leaving his restaurant in Berlin following dinner with friends. (See photos here.) Just five days later, Page Six reported that, according to a source, the Oscar-winning actor and the Irina Shayk look-alike are "totally over" after splitting "a while back." Said the source of the brief romance, "It was never all that serious as it was cracked up to be." Echoed an Us Weekly source, "Brad and Nicole have been over for a while now. They had a short-lived relationship that was never too serious." Now keep reading for more of the week's biggest celeb love life updates…

On Oct. 27, Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton took to Instagram to announce that they're engaged. "Yes please!" the bride-to-be captioned a photo of herself and the country crooner kissing while showing off her new engagement ring. "Hey @gwenstefani thanks for saving my 2020… And the rest of my life.. I love you. I heard a YES!" Blake captioned the same shot. Us Weekly later reported that the proposal went down in the country music superstar's native Oklahoma sometime in mid-October. "Blake had the ring custom-designed and asked permission from her dad before asking Gwen," said a source, noting that "it meant so much" to the No Doubt frontwoman that her beau was "so traditional." Meanwhile, "Entertainment Tonight" shed some light on why Blake finally popped the question after five years of coupledom: "Blake has been the one who wanted to take it slow in the beginning but recently he decided it was time. During the pandemic, they've had lots of downtime together and he truly saw the importance of spending life with the person you love," said a source. "Gwen takes marriage very seriously and was disappointed that her first marriage [to Gavin Rossdale] didn't work out. She wasn't in a hurry [to get engaged] because she wanted to ensure Blake was ready." Continued the insider, "They both live incredibly busy lives and have managed to make sure they work together and spend as much time as they can together. The pandemic has given them both the time they needed to slow down and just appreciate and love each other." The source went on to say that Gwen "fell head over heels" for Blake and knew he was "the one" within their first year of dating. "She is very old fashioned and told friends she wanted to wait until she received a proper proposal from Blake," said the source. "They have lived like a married couple for so long that those closest to them already saw them as married, but now they are finally making it official and their family is excited by the announcement." As for their wedding plans, the "ET" source noted that Gwen "has always spoken about a big traditional wedding with family and friends," but she and Blake will "enjoy their engagement" while waiting to "see how the pandemic pans out." Another Us Weekly source, however, noted that Blake — who tweeted that he and his new fiancée "are extremely excited" about their engagement — is "just ready to be married and wants it to happen very soon." Said the source, "Don't be surprised if it happens by the end of the year."

"They run in the same circles in London, and she's having fun," said a source, noting that "things have been heating up" between the longtime pals. Later that day, however, Adele took to Instagram to casually shoot down the report: "I'm going back to my cave now to be the (single) cat lady that I am!" she concluded a post thanking everyone who contributed to her buzzed-about appearance on the Oct. 24 episode of "Saturday Night Live."

On Oct. 22, The Sun reported that Kate Beckinsale and Goody Grace recently called it quits after about nine months of coupledom. The breakup news came to light after the 47-year-old actress unfollowed the 23-year-old singer and removed all traces of him from her Instagram. He's reportedly returned home to his native Canada after moving in with the "Underworld" star amid the coronavirus pandemic. People magazine later reported that they split earlier in the month. "It's not a big deal for Kate," said a source. "It was great for Kate to have him around during the lockdown." The insider added that Goody is "young and has other priorities than her" and that the English actress "totally gets it."
On Oct. 26, Page Six broke the news that Uma Thurman has been dating architect Peter Sabbeth since they met on the beach in New York's Sag Harbor over the summer. "Peter had no idea who Uma was at the time," said a source. "She was walking on the beach, known locally as Long Beach, near him, so he asked her to watch his dog while he took a swim. … Uma said OK, watched his dog while he swam, and now, a few months later, they are madly in love and looking to buy a home together in the Hamptons."
Shia LaBeouf and Margaret Qualley stripped down in the steamy music video for her sister Rainsford's new single, "Love Me Like You Hate Me," which debuted on Vimeo on Oct. 22. Over the course of the next few days, fans flocked to Deux Moi — an Instagram account dedicated to celebrity gossip — to submit sightings of the pair together over the course of the last few months. Several anonymous sources alleged that the "Transformers" alum and the "Once Upon a Time… In Hollywood" actress started dating over the summer and are now a couple. Earlier this year, Shia seemingly reconciled with his ex-wife, Mia Goth, though they haven't been seen together since the spring.
On Oct. 24, Cole Sprouse was snapped packing on the PDA with Instagram model Reina Silva during an outing in Vancouver. (See photos here.)

On Oct. 22, Us Weekly reported that, according to a source, Lily James and Dominic West — who were snapped packing on the PDA in Rome on Oct. 11 — "were always very flirtatious" on the set of their upcoming miniseries "The Pursuit of Love," in which they're portraying father and daughter. "Dominic and Lily had spent a lot of time together on set working together," said the source. "Dominic didn't seem to be trying to hide the fact that he was attracted to her. The way Dominic was carrying on with Lily, people assumed that he was allowed to stray from his marriage." In the wake of the scandal, the English actor and his wife, Catherine FitzGerald, have presented a united front. Lily, meanwhile, was accused of contributing to the implosion of another celebrity marriage…
On Oct. 24, DailyMail.com reported that Lily James and Armie Hammer had an inappropriate relationship while shooting the Netflix drama "Rebecca" in the summer of 2019 — nearly a year before he and now-estranged wife Elizabeth Chambers announced that they were calling it quits. According to the British webloid, the marriage "went into a nose-dive in the fall of 2019 after [Elizabeth] found passionate texts and letters from a mystery woman who signed herself 'Adeline'" — the pseudonym Lily reportedly used for her character, whose first name is never disclosed, while shooting "Rebecca." (At the time, Lily and Matt Smith were still an item, though their relationship was reportedly starting to cool.) "[Lily] was not subtle. And [Armie] was into it, no doubt about it. She was touching him constantly, giving him long smoldering looks," said one spy of the flirtation between the comely co-stars. "While he was filming, he chose to have weeks away in the English countryside instead of returning to see his family who were also in the U.K. This is all very typical of him." Elizabeth was reportedly "devastated" and "heartbroken" to find the texts between Armie and "Adeline" but ultimately decided to fight for her family … at first, anyways. "She wasn't about to throw away her marriage for one indiscretion," said a source, noting that the couple sought therapy and made plans to renew their wedding vows. But then Armie strayed again. According to DailyMail.com, he "accidentally sent [Elizabeth] a sexually explicit text from yet another woman that she knew wasn't meant for her." That was the final straw for the mother of two.
On Oct. 28, The Sun reported that Lena Headey quietly split from childhood pal Dan Cadan — with whom she shares daughter Teddy — in 2019 following just a year of marriage. According to the British tabloid, she's since moved on with "The Outsider" star Marc Menchaca — with whom she was pictured at the premiere of the HBO series in Los Angeles back in January. The "Games of Thrones" actress reportedly plans to move from her native England to the United States to be closer to her new beau. "Lena now sees herself living in the States for the foreseeable future," said a source. "It's where the parts are for her and she's got a blossoming relationship with Marc so she sees no point in her living in the U.K."
In case there were any lingering questions about Channing Tatum and Jessie J's relationship status, the singer confirmed on Instagram on Oct. 20 that she's back on the market, joking about "single life in a pandemic" in the caption of a video of herself twerking and drinking red wine. E! News later reported that, according to a source, the off-and-on couple called it quits for good "months ago." They sparked reconciliation rumors in May when it appeared as though they were quarantining together amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Sam Smith's summer fling with French furniture designer François Rocci has apparently come to an end. During an Oct. 26 interview with Apple Music's Zane Lowe, the English singer said that they're currently single. "Hopefully I'll find a boyfriend — but they're absolutely nowhere to be found anywhere in London," said the chart-topper. "I've been searching all over the place. Honestly, I've been on the frontline now for a good three years and it's exhausting."
Is there trouble in paradise for Tiffany Haddish and Common? On Oct. 28, multiple media outlets reported that the duo recently called it quits. The evidence? They no longer follow each other on Instagram. They also haven't been seen together or referenced each other on social media in several weeks — a marked difference from their behavior over the summer when they couldn't stop gushing about each other.
Another star fueling breakup rumors with her social media activity (or lack thereof)? Sometime in late October, "The Real Housewives of Orange County" star Braunwyn Windham-Burke deleted all recent traces of her husband, Sean Burke, from her Instagram. Earlier in the month, she'd used the social media platform to insist that all was well in her marriage. But then in mid-October, she told multiple media outlets that she and Sean aren't living together … and that she's seeing someone new, though she maintained at the time that she and her hubby had "every intention of staying together." Perhaps that's no longer the case?
In other "Housewives" love news… During an Oct. 26 interview with Us Weekly, Vicki Gunvalson slammed rumors that she and her fiancé, Steve Lodge, recently called it quits. "I have no fricking idea where this came from," said the former "The Real Housewives of Orange County" star. "Someone bored trying to stir [things] up … [We] are fine. … [We] live together and live a very private romantic life. We don't follow each other on social media and haven't for a long time, and we don't post photos of each other — what's the point? … This is a complete joke and not worth even commenting, but I did." The duo were set to tie the knot in April but indefinitely postponed their nuptials amid the coronavirus pandemic.
In other former "Housewives" romance news… On the Oct. 23 episode of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," Bethenny Frankel confirmed recent reports that she and her boyfriend of two years, Paul Bernon, called it quits. "I'm good. Not everything works out," she said. "So many people have tried to define my life with our lives, with 'When are you getting engaged? When are you having a baby? When are you getting married?' and I've just realized more in life with people being more open and honest about their lives and what they want, that everything doesn't have to sort of end in a blue [Tiffany] box and a bow. We've had a great, great relationship, and I'm really happy — and not everything has to end badly. Some things just don't continue, and it's not negative — it's just life."
In late September and early October, Evelyn Lozada shared several photos of herself posing in what appeared to be Marc Anthony's Miami home. (Check out a few shots here, here and here.) The photos sparked rumors that the "Basketball Wives" star and the Grammy-winning singer are an item. But on Oct. 26, Marc's rep told Us Weekly that the rumors are "false" and that the "I Need to Know" chart-topper "simply offered Lozada and her family to stay in his house while he was away."
According to Just Jared, Iggy Azalea took to her Instagram Story on Oct. 23 to hint that she and off-and-on love Playboi Cartai had called it quits. "You lost a real 1!!!!" she reportedly wrote, later adding, "People take loyalty for granted & That's why I'd rather be alone." The following day, she returned to the social media platform to make it clear that she's single and planning to raise her baby boy by herself: "What I meant last night was that I'm raising my son alone & I'm not in a relationship," she reportedly wrote, though she later clarified that her ex is still a part of their son's life. ("Onyx is so so loved by his dad & has always had both parents in his life from day 1," she wrote.) Iggy and Carti, who were first linked in 2018, welcomed son Onyx earlier this year.
On Oct. 17, Max Ehrich took to Instagram to share a screenshot from a FaceTime chat with Sonika Vaid, further fueling rumors that he's dating the "American Idol" alum in the wake of his late-September split from Demi Lovato. Four days later, however, Page Six reported that, according to a source, the former reality TV star is actually "in a full relationship and lives with her boyfriend." Explained the source, "[Max] wants to make it look like he's moving on with another woman, but they're not dating. … He's trying to get back at Demi and make her jealous. It's all phony."

Another week, another hot new romance for Harry Jowsey! On Oct. 23, the "Too Hot to Handle" star was caught on camera kissing Instagram model Julia Rose — who dated YouTube star Jake Paul earlier this year — over lunch in West Hollywood. (See a video here.) In another video published by The Hollywood Fix on YouTube that same day, Harry confirmed that he's "seeing someone right now" but noted that it's "too soon" to call her his girlfriend. "I wanna let it blossom," he said, adding that he's "really happy" with the new romance (purportedly with Julia). "I've never felt like this for someone, so fingers crossed," he gushed, noting that his new lady is "very supportive" and that "if all things go right with this girl," he won't be interested in looking for love on television again. As for rumored fling Larsa Pippen? She's "literally my friend," he said.
On Oct. 25, Diplo and Quenlin Blackwell took to Twitter to hit back at rumors that they're dating — which took off after the TikTok star claimed that she lives with the superstar DJ. "OK so I rent one of my properties to @quenblackwell. And yes I use the studio that is in that building. Her social media is sarcastic and chaotic and I can see you can get a twisted idea but there is nothing but a friendship between us," wrote the 41-year-old musician. Added the 19-year-old social media star, who has a serious boyfriend, "I'm an adult. I'm not being groomed. Platonic relationships exist. I've been living here for over a year… I'd rather break both of my legs and be forced to walk than pursue Diplo romantically, and he'd rather choke. He's barely in L.A. because he's so busy. Diplo has given me the opportunity and the security to create. Diplo and his team are my mentors in L.A. and they are my safety net. Diplo and his team have saved me numerous times from the weirdos in L.A. My parents trust him. I trust him. Y'all are making me feel icky. Diplo is my L.A. dad… nothing more."
On Oct. 27, Victoria's Secret and Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue model Jessica Hart revealed on Instagram that NASCAR driver James Kirkham — with whom she's currently expecting her first child – proposed at her baby shower on the beach in Malibu over the weekend. "What a day! My beautiful sister threw me a baby shower on the weekend and my BEST FRIEND, baby daddy and the equally beautiful @jameskirkham came and PROPOSED to me in front of all my friends.

I love you all (I said YES)," she captioned a slideshow of photos.
After Page Six reported on Oct. 21 that Anna Wintour and Shelby Bryan — who got together in 1999 and married in 2004 — finally split for good after several years of estrangement, the rumor mill started churning that the fashion icon had taken her longtime friendship with actor Bill Nighy to the next level. The pair, who've been seen together countless times over the course of the past decade, have faced romance rumors — which they're unlikely to publicly confirm or deny — for years.
Us Weekly reported on Oct. 23 that, according to a source, Sofia Richie and Matthew Morton are "totally a thing," and the Hard Rock Café scion is "really excited about it." Added the insider, "They both run in the same circle and have known each other. So it's easy and fun for both of them. Sofia's family approves of him, which is super nice for her."

E! News reported on Oct. 22 that, according to a source, Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson are "together and very happy" thanks to the "very special and meaningful" time they've been able to spend as a family with their daughter, True, amid the coronavirus pandemic. "She's very happy that he's around and that things have been going as well as they have," said the source. "Tristan has bent over backwards to be with her. He has apologized over and over and swears he is forever changed. She resisted for a long time, but he's slowly finding his way back in. … Obviously, Khloe is hesitant and taking it very slow." The insider went on to say that the reality star is worried "everything will change" once the professional basketball player begins traveling regularly for work again, but she isn't letting her concerns get her down. "She isn't getting ahead of herself and is just enjoying having him around right now and all of the family time they've had together with True," said the source. "Tristan is committed to doing things differently and not messing up. Khloe is hopeful about their future together and has seen a big change in him."

"I'm happy that we're able to spend it together … even though we're in the middle of getting a divorce," she said, adding that she's "thankful for where we're currently at." (Things between the former couple turned nasty after they announced that they were calling it quits in the spring.) "I think Jay and I are navigating this the best way we know how," the reality star said of co-parenting with the former professional football player. "Obviously, this is new for both of us and we're just trying to do what's best for the kids. … We're in a solid enough place that we're able to [spend Thanksgiving together], and I'm really thankful for that."
More formerly contentious exes who've turned a corner? During an interview with Us Weekly that hit the Internet on Oct. 27, Gina Kirschenheiter opened up about shooting "The Real Housewives of Orange County" with her ex-husband, Matthew Kirschenheiter. "I was very thankful that he [filmed], and I do owe a lot of that, I think, to his girlfriend. She's good for him," said the mother of three, who got a restraining order against her ex back in 2019. "Even though I did go through such bad things with Matt, I feel like it is important for people to see that you can go through all those bad things, but then you can move on. And obviously, it's still complicated and emotional and I'm totally willing to share that." Added the reality star, "It took us a long time to get here."
Chelsea Handler has spent much of 2020 discussing her major crush on recently single New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.

As for his ex, "I talk to Teresa all the time," he said, later noting that they "talk every day." He went on to say that although they've "moved on" from their relationship, things might've turned out differently if he'd been allowed to stay in the United States. "What are you going to do? It's been a while. If I was living there, it would be a different story, but I'm not. I'm over here, eight hours away in Italy, full of a bunch of Italian women," he said. "What's she going to do, stay alone forever? That's not fair, as well. Look, if I would have got out and I would have been able to go home, who knows what would happen? Maybe we'd still be in the same situation, maybe not. I don't know. Things change after so many years."
Former "The Mindy Project" star Fortune Feimster married longtime love Jacquelyn Smith in Malibu on Oct. 23. According to People magazine, they exchanged vows on the backyard patio at a rented house overlooking the ocean. The duo streamed the ceremony over Zoom for friends and family members watching from home. They were joined in person by "a couple of good friends," as well as their Pomeranian pup, who served as their ring bearer. The stand-up comedian later confirmed the happy news on Instagram, captioning a wedding photo, "We got married! Jax and I decided to forgo the big wedding we planned to have due to the pandemic and decided fairly last minute to do a tiny ceremony on the beach. We'll celebrate with friends and family in a year when it's safer to do so."
On the Oct. 22 episode of the "Click Bait" podcast, Hannah Ann Sluss said that she's currently single and hasn't been out on a date since May — when she was linked to professional football player Mason Rudolph following the implosion of her engagement to "The Bachelor" star Peter Weber. "I can't find anyone that's interesting," she said, noting that her last date was a "disaster." Explained the former pageant queen, "I feel like I'm an easy person to have a conversation with, but I feel like I just like the guys that are really hot that have no personality. And then I'm just sitting there just like, talking to myself."
Also on the Oct. 22 episode of the "Click Bait" podcast, Bachelor Nation's Tayshia Adams — who's set to take over as "The Bachelorette" after Clare Crawley bows out of season 16 — opened up about her divorce from Josh Bourelle, which preceded her attempt to woo Colton Underwood on season 23 of "The Bachelor" in 2019. "When things were getting really bad, we were like, 'OK, we need to go see a counselor,'" she said, according to Us Weekly. "Actually, that was my doing because I knew I needed to do absolutely everything in order to know that was the end of the road. … In my mind, divorce isn't a thing. Marriage is forever." Unfortunately, therapy didn't help them get back on track. "At that point, you kind of walk through some things and you try as hard as you can, but you can't force someone to love you," she said. "So if you do that for a couple of months and it's still not working, you're trying to do everything you can and the other person's not … you gotta go your own separate way. … That's why I was so happy and content to go look for love when I went on 'The Bachelor' because I knew I did everything. That was a chapter closed." The duo reportedly wed in February 2016 after four years of coupledom and split in late 2017.
In other Bachelor Nation love news… On the Oct. 21 episode of Bryan Abasolo's "drabshealthcast" podcast, he and wife Rachel Lindsay opened up about their long-distance marriage. (He lives full-time in Miami, where he works as a chiropractor, and she's currently living in Los Angeles while working as a correspondent for "Extra.") "I didn't move to L.A. because I just love the city," the former star of "The Bachelorette" explained, adding that they have "a timeline" for their future plans. "We're doing this to eventually bring ourselves together. … We know where we're going. We know where we're headed. And we know what we're trying to build as Abasolos." Chimed in her hubby, "I want you to go do your thing in L.A. I want you to be as successful as possible. … You're killing it right now, and I love it." Rachel then addressed criticism of their dynamic: "I can see from the outside looking in how it's like, 'Wow, when Rachel was on ['The Bachelorette'], she talked about not wanting to put her career over her husband.' But the thing is, I'm not putting my career over my husband. I'm putting my family first," she said. "Part of that is putting us in a position to succeed and put our family in the best position."
In still more Bachelor Nation love news… During an Oct. 21 interview with Us Weekly, Shawn Booth — who got engaged to Kaitlyn Bristowe on the finale of season 11 of "The Bachelorette" in 2015 — said that he's no longer sure marriage is in the cards for him. "I kind of go back and forth with that," he said. "I've always wanted to be married, and then I kind of started thinking, 'Maybe I'm just going to be a kind of a single guy and not get married but have kids.' I really, really want kids. That's, like, the main thing that I want. … Right now, I want kids more than I want a wife, but I know I need to get a wife before I get some kids. That whole thing." He then shared the qualities he's looking for in a partner: "Somebody that's a dog person, for sure. Somebody who's just supportive of my lifestyle and somebody who's super driven, passionate about what they do. Somebody [who can] go with the flow. I kind of have a tough schedule and a crazy lifestyle. So yeah, somebody who's supportive, loyal," he said.
During an Oct. 27 interview with Us Weekly, "Southern Charm" star Shep Rose confirmed that he and Taylor Ann Green are still going strong. "Things are going well, and she's fantastic," he said. "I kinda jokingly said, like, she refuses to give me a reason to not be in love with her, honestly. Like, I can find a reason to, like, weasel my way out of, like, any [relationship]." The reality star went on to say that he usually gets a "three-month itch" before walking away from a new romance. "And, like, day after day, month after month, she was just fantastic," gushed the Bravo reality star. "It just makes it really easy when you're like, 'Wait a second, why would I ever not want this person in my life? That doesn't make any sense at all.' So it's definitely a departure from my norm." In the past, he's been "nervous about domestic bliss," he said. "I guess she makes it just so easy that I just think that I know that I'm in the right situation. … She's so kind and lovely. And she just makes everyone around her feel good. And that's just like a really good, really good trait," he concluded, noting that they're in no rush to take their relationship to the next level because she's younger and "the clock isn't exactly ticking for her."
"The Challenge" star Tori Hall married lawyer Dusty Gwinn in Asheville, North Carolina, on Oct. 23. "Yesterday was a dream. The perfect day, packed with so much joy.

On the Oct. 27 episode of her new "Giggly Squad" podcast, "Summer House" star Paige DeSorbo confirmed recent rumors that she and Perry Rahbar called it quits. "[My fans] are full-on detectives and found out that my boyfriend and I broke up before we even broke up," she said. "[It's] confirmed. I am a single girl about the town now." She also dropped a fun tidbit about the last time she was single: She once matched with comedian Jeff Dye — who was recently seen smooching Kristin Cavallari — on Raya, an uber-exclusive dating app for the rich and famous. "I matched with him like two years ago and never opened his message," claimed the Bravo reality star.
On the Oct. 25 episode of "Sunday TODAY with Willie Geist," Drew Barrymore opened up about her 2016 split from third husband Will Kopelman, with whom she shares two daughters. "I couldn't make sense of it. I really did not take divorce well. I took it really hard," she said, adding that because she grew up without a strong family support system, "the last thing" she wanted to do was separate from her daughters' father. "I think that's why I took [the divorce] so hard. I was like, 'Ugh, the ultimate promise I wanted to make with you and for you was to have this amazing family. And I found them! And there's something not working that isn't livable.' How tragic is that? It took me five years to be able to speak with strength, articulation, perspective, hindsight, and see everything we did right — because when we were getting divorced, it felt like everything was just wrong. I think it applies to everyone who thinks that something will be forever and it's not. It's so hard. I don't think I've recovered from that. I don't know how to open that up again. It's like something's closed and it's stayed close. I think I'm equally as scared to find love again as I would be as if it never happened." While fighting back tears, the actress added that although she questioned if she and her girls would ever be happy again in the wake of her divorce, they are!
Not-so-friendly exes. Amber Rose had only negative things to say while discussing ex-boyfriend Kanye Went during an interview with No Jumper that popped up online on Oct. 21. "No. I didn't soak anything up from him," she said when asked if she "soaked up" any of the rapper's notorious confidence during their relationship. "Me and him and are two very different people," she added before referencing the times Kanye has publicly trashed her in the decade since they called it quits. (For example, he compared her to a prostitute during a recent campaign rally and said back in 2015 that he needed "30 showers" after they split.) "That's what narcissists do," she said. "You spend two years with someone. You take them around the world. You buy them all the jewelry. You shout-out how much you love them … and then the person decides this isn't what they want their life to be. I opted out… I don't know if he says things to make his wife [Kim Kardashian West] more comfortable, but to … say you needed 30 showers? … Ten years later, just leave me alone. I don't bother you." She went on to say that although she's been offered book deals to dish on her relationship with the presidential hopeful, she's turned them down because "that wouldn't make me happy … even if somebody is picking on me, which he has for 10 years." Concluded the mother of two, "He has picked on me. He has bullied me for 10 years."
On the Oct. 21 episode of "The Domenick Nati Show," Laura Jallali revealed that she and Aladin Jallali were "officially divorced" as of 12 p.m. that day. "It's over. See ya later. Thanks for the ride. Hasta la vista, baby," said the former "90 Day Fiancé" star, who married Aladin in July 2018 and then separated from him in October 2019 after they appeared on the TLC reality show together. "So I am now single. If there's any men who wanna put a ring on it, I will judge the diamond size and the quality. But yeah, totally, come on — DM me. Show me the ring. Let's get jiggy with it," she continued. Back in May, Laura said that she was dating again. A month later, Aladin claimed that he'd gotten engaged to another woman, though he's yet to reveal his mystery fiancée's identity. It's unclear if he's still planning to wed again.
