The Sun reported on Nov. 11 that Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra, who got engaged over the summer, are planning to tie the knot at Umaid Bhawan Palace — a 347-room private residence that also partially functions as a hotel — following a week of pre-wedding celebrations in the "Quantico" star's native India. The events leading up to the nuptials will include a Christian ceremony, a Mehndi ceremony — during which the bride and groom receive henna tattoos — and other Hindi pre-wedding ceremonies. "They will culminate with the Indian wedding on Dec. 1 at the palace, where they will tie the knot under a traditional four-pillar structure, a mandap," said a source. "Nick will wear ivory and Priyanka will be in red, while the bridesmaids will wear Ralph Lauren outfits for the Christian wedding, because the couple wore the brand at their first public appearance together [when they were still just friends] at the Met Gala last year." The Sun's source adds that the pair are "relishing every minute" leading up to their big day. As for the wedding party, Priyanka's best friend, film producer Mubina Rattonsey, will serve as her maid of honor, while Nick's three brothers — Joe Jonas, Kevin Jonas and Frankie Jonas — as well as his "Kingdom" co-star Jonathan Tucker and Priyanka's brother, Siddharth Chopra, will serve as groomsmen.

"I want to tell you guys something. I want to tell you: Tyler doesn't want to say, but Tyler is my mother—— boyfriend, and he's been my mother—— boyfriend my whole f—— life. Tyler, the Creator is my f—— boyfriend. It's true!" Videos of Jaden's proclamation show Tyler, who was watching from the front row, shaking his head and hands in denial before laughing. Later that night, the rapper-actor tweeted, "Yup @tylerthecreator I Told Everyone You Can't Deny It Now." Replied the MC, "hahaha you a crazy n— man." It's unclear whether or not Jaden was joking, though according to a People magazine source, he was just "trolling" his pal.

It's been all quiet on the Nicki Minaj and Lewis Hamilton front since late September, but that all changed after the British racecar driver won the Formula One Grand Prix in Brazil on Nov. 11. The rapper took to her Instagram Story to congratulate her rumored beau: "Congratulations sweetheart!!! #CHAMPION @lewishamilton So proud of you," she wrote across a photo of the handsome Brit. Later that day, Lewis took to his own Instagram Story to return the favor, congratulating Nicki on her wins during the 2018 People's Choice Awards: "Big congrats @nickiminaj on winning both album of the year & female artist of the year at people's choice awards. So happy for you," he wrote across a photo of Nicki posing with her awards in the sheer bondage-inspired Versace dress that she wore during the show. Speaking of which… While accepting one of her awards, the "Super Bass" chart-topper gave a shout-out to Donatella Versace "for custom-making this outfit for me" and a shout-out to Michael B.

During an interview with GQ that hit the Internet on Nov. 12, Michael B. Jordan opened up about why it's impossible for him to date — and insisted that he's single. "My career is awesome. It is going great. There's other places in my life that I'm f—— lacking at. I'm very mature and advanced in a lot of areas of life. Dating may not be one of 'em. My personal life is not. I don't really know what dating is," he said. "But it's like, I could meet you, right now, boom, right here. Me and you sitting here chilling, whatever. Meal, whatever. Somebody could be over there, see this. And all of a sudden, you're my girl now. … So then they're going to talk about you, they're going to find out who you are. They're gonna find out what your Instagram is, they're going to find us in that. And all the fan club and everybody else is going to find out who you are, and now you and I are forever associated with one another. So now, how do you go anywhere normal, chill, just getting to know somebody that you just met, that you may not — may or may not — hit it off at all? That part of dating is tough. … Now, I'm not saying options aren't there. I'm not saying that. But as far as, like, the nuance of dating, it's just not the same. I'm just going to keep trying to work on myself and build this empire." The actor was linked to Ashlyn Castro between late 2017 and mid-2018.
On Nov. 14, DailyMailTV published video of Stephen Baldwin leaving the Hollywood apartment of professional masseuse Ruth Perez Anselmi, which he's reportedly visited "numerous times" as recently as mid-October. According to a friend of Ruth's, the actor — who's been married to wife Kenya Baldwin for 28 years — has been having an affair with the masseuse since they met at a physical therapy school in Los Angeles in 2016. When a videographer confronted Stephen about the alleged affair, he didn't exactly deny anything, instead firing back, "You are out of your mind, brother. … You guys are just crazy. … Why do you guys do these sick things?" According to the masseuse's pal, Ruth wasn't interested in Stephen when they first met, "but he was very persistent." Though they kept things professional at first, with Ruth giving Stephen back massages, "Things quickly turned sexual," said the pal, adding that the duo met up at Ruth's home and at hotels. "He'd often message her last minute as well and want to come over. He liked her to give him massages but there was always sex involved. It was convenient for him, he never took her out to dinner or on a date, he was just after one thing." According to DailyMail.com, which published screenshots of Ruth and Stephen's text messages to each other, Ruth was "hoping for a serious relationship," though she declined Stephen's request for her to travel the country with him because of her two kids and her work commitments. The actor reportedly never discussed his private life with Ruth or admitted to being married or having kids (daughters Hayley Baldwin and Alaia Baldwin). Ruth, meanwhile, allegedly wasn't aware of the fact that Stephen is a famous actor. "He never said he was married and she never asked, it wasn't until earlier this year that she realized he wasn't being honest with her and she was very upset," said Ruth's friend. "She was more devastated when she realized he's been married for 28 years and had no intention of leaving his wife. Stephen is very arrogant to think that he could get away with it all this time."

Dan also raised eyebrows when he thanked Aja while accepting an award for his HBO documentary, "Believer." Said the rocker, "Where are you, babe? … This is my girl, Aja, and she's from Eugene, Oregon. … You sat at the table with me, and you talked with me, and you taught me. You're the reason that I'm here. I love you."
During a Nov. 13 appearance on "The Wendy Williams Show," Toni Braxton revealed that her fiancé, rapper and record exec Birdman, is getting antsy about setting a wedding date after they were forced to push back their nuptials twice already due to drama with her sisters and "Braxton Family Values," their WE tv reality show. "He's like, 'Come on … set a date,'" said Toni. "He said before the year is out, so I have a couple weeks." Toni, who previously said she wants a "The Great Gatsby"-themed wedding, added that while a courthouse wedding would work for Birdman, she wants a bigger ceremony with "the dress." As for her maid of honor, the bride-to-be said that the honor will go to her best friend, Jada Pinkett Smith.

Roger Mathews raised eyebrows when he left a comment saying that his wife, JWoww, finds him "repulsive" in the comments section of a photo that her "Jersey Shore" co-star, Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola, posted on Instagram on Nov. 9. "Fun fact.. my mom took this photo," Sammi captioned a shot of herself. "Fun fact. My wife finds me repulsive," commented the father of two. A few days later, Roger and his missus, who filed for divorce in September, reunited to take their kids to the "Trolls" experience in New York City. "I hesitate to make a comment because it seems like everything is taken out of context but I'm a real comedian. So don't take anything I say serious," he told Us Weekly on Nov. 14 of the controversial Instagram comment. "I don't get upset, it comes with the territory. I know what I signed up for but I just think we live in a world with fake news where people put out stuff that's not true to get listeners to tune in or read or whatever. We know what's going on in our own house and that's all that matters. If the world wants to judge, the world can judge." As for attending the event together, "We're here as a family today," said Roger. "We're working on things yeah, absolutely. We spent eight years together so … I feel like there's nothing that's not fixable in our situation."

You've made me feel incredibly special, supported, and very loved. So from the bottom of my heart, thank you. It truly means a lot. And thank you to everyone who has sent their love & support during this painful time. I love you guys," he captioned a photo of himself and his ex from early in their relationship.

"The Bachelor Winter Games" co-star couple Lily McManus and Courtney Dober said in February that they were planning to move in together after hitting it off on the show. They parted ways in August when the pressures of fame on their relationship became just too much, but they're still hanging out, Courtney said on the Nov. 5 episode of Ben Higgins and Ashley Iaconetti's "Almost Famous" podcast — and it sounds pretty complicated. "Since the expectations of a relationship [have] been completely and utterly removed and the pressure from the outside world has completely dissipated, it's like, there's no pressure and now we find ourselves in this situation where we are very good friends. We hang out probably more than we did when we were actually in a romantic relationship," he said. "We get along. I don't know what it is. … We're both leading very separate lives and we're not looking into the future because we're not in a relationship. So we're just living in the present moment and we're just enjoying each other's company far more than I suppose I think we were previously, so it's a strange dynamic. … There have been moments of romance, I'm not gonna lie." Courtney then revealed that he and Lily have slept together since they split. But that doesn't mean they'll reconcile romantically: Their visas expire at different times, and Courtney, who is 32, wants kids within the next few years, he said, which may prove problematic for Lily, who is only 21.

Vanessa Hudgens gushed about her boyfriend of seven years, Austin Butler, during an interview for the December 2018 issue of Women's Health, which hit the Internet on Nov. 13. "He inspires me more than anyone," she said. "We both respect, trust and admire each other. It's so solid now because I feel strong as an independent woman. I am very self-reliant, but it's nice to have a best friend you can share victories with as well as losses." As for why they haven't taken the next step in their relationship? "Everyone's clock is different," said the singer-actress. "I want to get married, travel, then have kids — probably in my late 30s."

"The Bachelor" alum Becca Tilley opened up about two of her famous former loves during a Nov. 11 interview with Us Weekly. "I'm just happy as long as he's happy," she said of Robert Graham (pictured), who briefly competed for Desiree Hartsock's heart on Season 9 of "The Bachelorette" in 2013 before romancing Becca from late 2016 to early 2017. "We're still good friends," she continued. "I'm just happy that he's happy, that's how I feel. I haven't met [his new girlfriend] yet, but from other people, I've heard she's amazing." (Robert debuted his new love, 19-year-old model Charly Jordan, on Instagram earlier this year.) Becca also told Us that her fans still ship her and Ben Higgins. (She competed for his heart on Season 20 of "The Bachelor" after placing second on Chris Soules' season the previous year.) "Ben's, like, one of my favorite people. He's amazing. Not a bad person to be linked to," she said, adding that "really anyone that I'm in a photo with, I feel like I get linked to."
