"Emma and Evan were heading for a split and now are just friends," said a source. "Evan has moved out. It wasn't a bad breakup." According to another source, "Garrett and Emma have been friends, but this is new, casual, and just a couple of weeks old." Us Weekly apparently caught wind of the shift in Emma's love life when a spy spotted her holding hands with Garrett during a recent outing in Los Angeles.

The Blast reported on March 17 that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are working on a deal that will legally end their marriage even though they've yet to officially settle their divorce. The former couple are still in the process of dividing their assets and ironing out a permanent custody agreement for their kids, but they're eager to end their legal ties to one another. According to a source, the pair "both want to get on with their lives and no longer want to be married to each other." According to The Blast, they're both ready to "emotionally move on" — but the decision has nothing to do with new romantic partners for either of them. The webloid reports that their final settlement will likely take several more months.

People magazine reported on March 18 that Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin, who officially became husband and wife at a New York City courthouse in September, have delayed their big wedding for family and friends (again). "They will still have a wedding eventually, but this is not their focus right now," said a source. "They haven't sent out any new save-the-dates. They will wait until Justin feels better and is excited about planning their wedding again." The pop star has been focused on his mental health in recent weeks since revealing his battle with depression in February. "He is very, very focused on getting better. He wants to be in a great place for his own and Hailey's sake. He is still confident that he will get there," said the People source, adding that "Hailey isn't putting any pressure on him at all" to plan their wedding because "she only wants him to focus on his mental health." According to another insider, the model is the singer's "biggest supporter." Said the second source, "She is there for him in a way that you wouldn't expect from a newlywed. She understands him deeply and is 100 percent ready to help him. He realizes how blessed he is to have her."

The Sun reported on March 18 that Millie Bobby Brown is dating Romeo Beckham. "It's early days but they make a very sweet couple," said a source, adding that Romeo's mom, Victoria Beckham, has given the relationship "the seal of approval as she is a big fan of Millie's." (Another source, however, downplayed the alleged romance, saying simply that "Romeo and Millie are hanging out.") The duo reportedly met in December 2016 when the "Stranger Things" actress presented an award to Romeo's dad, David Beckham, during UNICEF's 70th anniversary celebration. That same night, Millie joked that her goal for her onscreen alter ego, Eleven, is to do "something with Romeo Beckham." The actress is also friends with Brooklyn Beckham's girlfriend, model Hana Cross.
Amber Heard was spotted locking lips with "It" director Andy Muschietti in Los Angeles on March 13. The kiss signaled that her relationship with Vito Schnabel had come to an end. A day earlier, the art dealer was photographed looking chummy with model Denise Schaefer outside Carbone restaurant in New York City.
TMZ reported on March 18 that Pamela Anderson and Adil Rami, who called it quits in September, reconciled "several weeks" ago — and her friends are displeased. They reportedly feel like the French soccer player "tried cutting Pam off from her friends and family" and "fear his juvenile behavior — partying and clubbing — isn't for Pam anymore." Writes TMZ, "Her friends are adamant … it's never gonna work long term. Pam's friends are clear … they want her to move on. If and when she's ready … find someone else."
Several media outlets reported on March 19 that according to Vicky Ward's new book about the Kushner clan, "Kushner, Inc.," Joshua Kushner's relationship with now-wife Karlie Kloss caused problems with his family for years. According to Town & Country, though the family eventually warmed to the model, they once banned her from attending family gatherings and "refused to even meet her" for six whole years. In January 2017, patriarch Charles Kushner reportedly "turned nasty" toward Josh and told him that the family expected him "to do the right thing" — break up with his girlfriend. "The person you are with is not the right person," he reportedly told his son, who "absorbed his father's abuse in silence." According to the writer, the Kushners were displeased that Karlie is not Jewish. (She's since converted.) They've had fewer problems with Ivanka Trump, who also was not Jewish when she started dating Josh's brother, Jared Kushner, but converted before they tied the knot. While Karlie was born and raised in the suburbs of Missouri and had yet to attend college when she and Josh started dating, Ivanka was "real estate royalty" — like the Kushners — and attended the University of Pennsylvania, which is why they openly welcomed her. Jared, Ward says, also disliked Karlie. He reportedly once told a colleague that the family was "hoping" Josh would move on and that the model is "not that smart." Ward allegedly heard from multiple sources that the whole family "spoke horribly" about the Victoria's Secret Angel behind her back and referred to her as "the lingerie model."
TMZ reported on March 18 that Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott's relationship "isn't even close to what it used to be" since she accused him of cheating in late February. They've reportedly been in communication — "but only in spurts" — as the makeup mogul deals with serious trust issues that have been exacerbated by the rapper's hectic schedule for his "Astroworld" tour. According to TMZ, "keeping his family together is top priority for Travis," but because Kylie is focused on their daughter and her own business commitments, they've yet to fully hash things out. Sources say the duo are "confident they'll be able to work things out" when he finally takes a break from touring next month, but "for now, their careers have taken the front seat." In the meantime, the pair have subtly presented a united front. During the Houston Rockets basketball game on March 13, Travis, who sat courtside, showed his love for Kylie by wearing a hoodie featuring a photo of her rocking lingerie. Two days later, she returned the favor by posting a photo on Instagram of herself sporting his tour merch while posing with their daughter. On March 19 — the same day the "Sicko Mode" chart-topper commented with the heart-eye emoji on a photo of Kylie on Instagram — People magazine reported that, according to a source, "Travis's tour has been hard for Kylie. … They spend very little time together. … When he's around, things are great with them. … But when he tours, Kylie finds it hard to trust him. … Travis keeps telling Kylie that she can trust him. … He has been doing everything he can right now to regain her trust. He will soon be off for a few weeks and keeps saying he can't wait to spend time with Kylie and Stormi."
On the March 20 episode of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," Senator Cory Booker opened up about his relationship with Rosario Dawson — which the actress confirmed during a March 14 chat with a TMZ cameraman at an airport near Washington, D.C. ("Yes, very much so," she said when asked if she's in a relationship with the presidential hopeful, adding that things are "so far, so wonderful" between them. "He's a wonderful human being, and it's good to spend some time together when we can. … I am just grateful to be with someone that I respect and love and admire so much, who is so brilliant and kind and caring and loving.") Cory told Ellen that Rosario came clean about their romance because "she got TMZed." Explained the senator, "She was visiting me in D.C., and then she left to the airport and she got ambushed at the airport. I suddenly get this little video from her saying, 'I got TMZed. I don't have makeup on.' … But she was wonderful, and she's just an incredible human being." He added of the public interest in their relationship, which first gained attention after they posed with "Dear Evan Hansen" actor Taylor Trensch in January, "As our relationship grows, it's difficult, but she is just a deeply soulful person and has taught me a lot of lessons about love already — and that sometimes, you show the greatest strength when you make yourself vulnerable. She really has this nurturing spirit that's made me more courageous — not just in the love that I project and want to see in our country, but I think even in our own personal relationships — to love more fearlessly. So I'm very, very blessed to be with somebody that makes me a better person."
They're getting serious! Channing Tatum and Jessie J made their public debut during a shopping trip in London on March 14. The duo, who were first linked in October, were photographed holding hands during the outing.
Kate Beckinsale and Pete Davidson are getting serious: The 25-year-old comedian spent time with the 45-year-old actress's mother, Judy Loe, and her stepfather, Roy Battersby, in Los Angeles on March 19.

During an interview with WSJ. Magazine that hit the Internet on March 20, Grimes suggested that she and Elon Musk are still an item. After groaning when the interviewer asked her about the Tesla founder, the singer said, "Don't tell him I groaned just now. … I groaned out of, I don't know, feminism. I mean, he's a super-interesting goddamn person." Later, she said of Elon, "Look, I love him." The SpaceX CEO reportedly emailed the magazine to provide a quote for their story: "I love [her] wild fae artistic creativity and hyperintense work ethic," he wrote.
In spite of rumors to the contrary, Ewan McGregor and Mary Elizabeth Winstead are still going strong. The duo, who were first linked in late 2017, held hands outside the Sunset Marquis hotel in West Hollywood on March 17.

Writer Cat Marnell prompted reports that Kelly Rohrbach and Steuart Walton are engaged when she tweeted in mid-March that she overheard the Walmart heir discussing his upcoming wedding while sitting across from him for five hours on a train in Switzerland. Cat tweeted that she overheard Steuart call his "fiancée." She then eavesdropped as he yelled at their wedding planner. "Actual quote: 'A $20K sandcastle is not required to have a good time,'" she tweeted, adding later that based on what she overheard, the couple, who were first linked publicly in May 2017, are getting married on Harbour Island in the Bahamas "and the budget for the wedding is $1 to $1.5 million." Tweeted Cat, "He also called his lawyer . . . and worked on his prenup or life insurance policy. 'I don't want to incentivize my death.'" She's since deleted the tweets, which the model-actress and the businessman have yet to address.
On the March 15 episode of his SiriusXM radio show, Jeff Lewis revealed that the chiropractor he said he was dating just three days earlier "dumped" him after he talked about their relationship on the air. The chiropractor specifically asked Jeff to keep their relationship private, but after he saw an article recapping what the reality star said about their previous dates on his show, he felt "like the trust was broken." The duo got into a huge fight that they ultimately weren't able to resolve. The "Flipping Out" star also compared the chiropractor to his ex, Gage Edward (pictured), saying that when the new guy implied they wouldn't be hooking up, it gave him flashbacks to his former longtime partner: "So he's withholding sex. Is that what's happening?" he asked. "Because I went through that for 10 years and I don't wanna do that anymore — where somebody gets mad at me and they don't wanna hook up so they go into the guest room. … And then they're mad for like three days." Speaking of Gage, Jeff implied — after previously saying that his "prediction" is that his ex will "come back crying" — that he hasn't ruled out the prospect of reconciliation. "I think that this breakup took on a life of its own and we both grossly mishandled things," he said. "My intuition is that we both didn't expect this to happen or necessarily want this to happen this way and now the problem is that neither one of us have the tools to fix anything. But I do believe personally that we made some really bad choices and now we're stuck. … I think if Gage were remorseful and responsible and apologetic, that might change the way I view things. We had to end the old relationship. Right now, I'm grieving it and mourning it and I want that relationship to just completely end."
England's Princess Beatrice and her boyfriend, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, brought their love to the United States this week. The duo were spotted holding hands in New York City on March 17 — less than a week after they made their public debut at the Portrait Gala in London on March 12.
During an interview with People magazine that hit the Internet on March 20, Jennifer Lopez opened up about her recent engagement to Alex Rodriguez: "We're really happy," she said. "We have [an] appreciation for where we are in our lives today, and that's what we're enjoying the most." Added the singer-actress, "Everything that we do, we do together. … He knows my dreams and I know his dreams, and together we feel like we're stronger. … We're constantly supporting each other in our individual endeavors and thinking about all the things that we can build together." Chimed in the former baseball star, "We are very grateful." On March 16, Page Six reported that, according to a source, the power couple is "so respectful to each other." Said the source, "When Alex is working for ESPN [calling baseball games], Jennifer goes … and sits quietly in the booth because she likes to watch him. They have that kind of relationship. Likewise, when she was doing her [residency] in Vegas, he would fly in. He was at almost every show. The support level is incredible." Another insider addressed the cheating allegations Jose Canseco lobbed at A-Rod the day after he popped the question to J.Lo: "When you get engaged and that night you have some maniac tweeting that crap, that's got to be hard to deal with," said the source. "But Alex and Jennifer are strong enough to understand who they are. People have tried to knock them down, but you can't fake love." Chimed in another pal, "Both of them fully admit that if they'd [gotten together] 10 years ago, it just wouldn't have worked. … They were just different people back then." The source also claims to have warned Alex, "Whatever you do, you cannot mess her around," when he first started seeing Jennifer. "I said, 'This lady is like American royalty. Whatever happens, you cannot treat her badly. If you split up for any reason, she has to be the one to dump [you]!' It's a lot of pressure on someone to date Jennifer Lopez! But they both fell in love." Concluded the source, "He's met his match."
Meanwhile, Alex Rodriguez's ex-wife, Cynthia Scurtis, addressed the former baseball star's recent engagement to Jennifer Lopez during a March 17 chat with Radar Online outsider her home in Miami. "I'm happy for them," she said. "Other than that, I have no comment."
During an interview with People magazine that hit the Internet on March 20, Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard opened up about their rocky road to marriage. "We definitely had to work really hard at being a couple because we're both incredibly, painfully stubborn, and we're pretty much opposites," said the actor, who once broke up with the blonde beauty early in their relationship. Ultimately, he came around: "I was like, 'That's the best personality I've ever seen on a woman. I need to be around it," he recalled. "I want to be around it when I'm 80, but how?" For a long time, Dax was opposed to the idea of marriage. "He has a great argument that the state having a piece of paper doesn't mean he's going to be nice to me and by my side for the rest of my life. [Rather], that is going to be evidenced by how we treat each other and the commitment that we make," said Kristen. "I had surrendered, like, 'OK, well, I'm never going to get any sort of traditional marriage out of this, and that's OK because I trust him.' I really, really trusted him and believed that we were going to go the long haul." Eventually, he changed his mind about getting married: "I was like, 'Well, I'm doing it because my partner wants that,'" he said. "Forget the tradition or history of marriage as a concept, [Kristen] knowing I was doing something that I didn't want to do because I loved [her] was a big sign." After they tied the knot, their relationship "just felt more normal," Kristen said. "We do a lot of things differently, but there's a couple things where I'm just like, 'God, can we not just fall inside the lines once in a while? I want to wear a pretty piece of jewelry. It's fun!'" she added. "It felt nice afterwards. … All these movies from the '80s taught us that it's love at first sight, and it is supposed to be easy and [that] all you have to do is find that person. … It took me a while to realize, 'Oh, that was such a lie,' because things that you work really, really, really hard for always yield the best results."
Oops! Katy Perry sent her fans into a frenzy when she accidentally referred to her new fiancé, Orlando Bloom, as her boyfriend on Twitter. "My favorite part of watching #americanidol with my boyfriend is that he always tries to ask if they got in or not before we give the final vote. I never tell him hahahahahahahahahahaha," she tweeted on March 17.
On the March 20 episode of the "Today" show, Trista Sutter and Ryan Sutter opened up about their marriage of more than 15 years. "A big secret of ours — and it's not necessarily a secret — is that we disappeared. … We live kind of a relatively quiet life," said the mother of two. "This has always been my favorite part about it because it was 15 years ago so we were protected by obsolete technology," chimed in her husband. Trista also dished on how they explained how they met to their two kids: "We told them a couple of years ago. Well, I did because he was out of town and they asked," she said. Added Ryan, "I'm pretty sure our daughter is watching it right now, she already has it figured out." He's happy to leave the show in the past, though: "I always was so comfortable with the fact that it was only on available on VHS so I knew no one was ever going to watch it, and now it's caught up with technology and available. I don't want my friends to be like, 'Remember this?'" he said.
On the March 19 episode of E!'s "Busy Tonight," Taye Diggs said he hasn't been putting himself out there romantically since parting ways from ex-wife Idina Menzel. "I haven't really started yet, really," he said of dating, adding that he wouldn't try a dating app "not in a million years." Explained the actor, "I'm old fashioned a little bit when it comes to that." But that hasn't stopped him from sliding into a few lucky ladies' DMs on Instagram. "I've done that," he admitted. "But that's, like, I don't take it seriously. It's exciting [when you're] a couple drinks in. There's a vibe you have when you're texting at 2 in the morning. And if you decide to meet, you're not at the same vibe. … I mean, some of these girls on Instagram are, like, they're ridiculous to look at." When Busy chimed in to say that Instagram isn't real, Taye replied, "Well, it looks real enough — real enough for me to be a little insecure."
In an essay for Vogue that hit the Internet on March 18, Lena Dunham opened up about dating again following her late 2017 split from Jack Antonoff after six years of coupledom. "During the brief spaces between rebound romances, I'd felt choppy and unrealized, like a vintage TV set without the sharpness adjusted," she wrote while detailing her "sex-and-love addiction," her "infinite shame" about sex and her tendency to be attracted to men who aren't the type of individuals she'd generally like to be around. She also detailed her brief relationship with an older man who slid into her DMs — ultimately, things didn't work out because they weren't sexually compatible — and attempted to unpack why she likes to be "humiliated" in bed. "I know what it is to be in love, and I liked it. But the bigger issue is, I know what it's like to make a home with someone, and I loved it. It's safe. It's free of shame and pain and humiliation. It was heaven, eating Indian food in front of old episodes of 'Strangers with Candy,' and it relegated me to a life without arousal," she wrote, adding that her ideal partner is "a sober, emotionally aware pervert with a passion for his craft and the ability to break down cardboard boxes and take them to [the] recycling room." Concluded the "Girls" star, "In a way this is my first Internet dating profile. In a way it's a declaration of independence. In a way this is my battle cry. But maybe it's just a reminder that I am alive in this body that makes demands I can't always understand. These days, I don't even try."
On March 19, MailOnline published photos of Cuba Gooding Jr. and Claudine De Niro — the estranged wife of Robert De Niro's son Raphael — hanging out by the pool at a resort in Miami Beach in late December — around the time reports first surfaced alleging that that they're an item. ("I wouldn't say they are dating, but they are hooking up," a source told Page Six after the duo were seen together several times late last year.) The Oscar-winning actor is currently in the process of divorcing Sara Kapfer after more than two decades of marriage. Claudine and Raphael's divorce is also ongoing.
