Model Miranda Kerr and Snapchat co-founder Evan Spiegel married in the backyard of their home in Los Angeles's Brentwood neighborhood on May 27. The couple, who got engaged in July 2016 after about a year of dating, kept things incredibly intimate: fewer than 50 guests attended. According to E!, the couple opted for "rustic chic" decor with farmhouse tables, white benches and chairs and light pink garden roses. "Everything was done elegantly," a guest told E!, which also reported that guests including Miranda's 6-year-old son Flynn (with first husband Orlando Bloom) enjoyed performances by Jason Mraz, Colbie Caillat and even Miranda, who sang Shania Twain's "Still the One."
Ben Stiller and Christine Taylor's 17-year marriage is over. On May 26, the pair announced the sad news in a joint statement to "Entertainment Tonight." "With tremendous love and respect for each other, and the 18 years we spent together as a couple, we have made the decision to separate," they said. "Our priority will continue to be raising our children as devoted parents and the closest of friends. We kindly ask that the media respect our privacy at this time." The frequent co-stars are parents to daughter Ella, 15, and son Quinlan, 11. People magazine later shed some light on the reason for the breakup, citing Ben's hectic work schedule. "It gets hard — he has a very busy Hollywood career, and she's been very focused on being a mom," a source told the magazine, adding that it's unlikely the split will turn messy. "They are a very loving family. [Christine] and Ben respect each other and will do anything to make sure their kids are happy."

Does Rob Kardashian have a new lady? After months of drama with former fiancée Blac Chyna, the mother of his 7-month-old daughter Dream, Rob has reportedly moved on — with another reality star. "Rob's been seeing Mehgan James for almost three months, and most of the Kardashians are very upset about it because Mehgan is known for being out of control and volatile," an insider told In Touch, which reported the news on May 31. "The Kardashians want Rob to find a woman who is kind and calm." Later that day, Us Weekly also confirmed Rob's romance with Mehgan, who appeared on Oxygen's "Bad Girls Club" in 2012 and "Basketball Wives LA" in 2015. An insider insisted to Us that Mehgan has grown up in recent years: "She's matured and will be a good fixture in Rob's life should this continue." But Rob has denied the romance: "Wait reading online about some chick I'm dating Megan something. Not true never even met her or heard of her before," he tweeted. To add confusion to the story, Mehgan retweeted Rob with the following comment, "Less is more. Although I've been advised not to say anything , I will say, I'm only 'Megan something.' I don't control the media but we all know who does. Im just as confused as everyone else." We will keep you updated!
In late May, Scott Disick — a self-professed "sex addict" — went on a wild, women-filled partying spree while in Cannes, France, where he was linked to six women in five days: On May 24, Scott and actress Bella Thorne were seen kissing and groping each other while poolside at his rented luxury villa. One day later, Bella was gone — TMZ later reported that she felt humiliated and used by Scott — and he was with someone new: Celebrity stylist Chloe Bartoli, the same woman he was caught with back in July 2015, which triggered his original split from Kourtney. On May 26 — his 34th birthday — Scott was photographed in his villa's pool with London-based blogger Maggie Petrova. (Maggie told DailyMail.com, "There is nothing going on with me and Scott, just friendship.") Later that same day, model Chloe Ross was also seen getting close to Scott as she sat on his lap. She came back the following day too. Just when it seemed like it couldn't get any crazier, Scott was photographed on a yacht on May 28 with his arm around yet another young woman. The DailyMail.com published photos with the headline, "Is there no stopping him? Now Scott Disick flirts up a storm with Sofia Richie, 18." That same evening, he was photographed hugging and kissing model Bridget Satterlee. Scott then jetted off to Ibiza, Spain, with his buddies.
In a recent interview with InStyle, Jon Hamm admitted being single "sucks" after having spent 18 years with his ex, Jennifer Westfeldt. If there's any truth to a new report from the New York Post, however, things could be looking up for the former "Mad Men" star. A spy tells the tab that sparks were flying between Jon and Kate Beckinsale during a screening of his new film, "Baby Driver," in Los Angeles this week. "They were flirting and he kept going back to her all night," said the snitch. "It was like he couldn't leave her. She had a friend with her, but they were kind of ignoring her and just talking to each other. He was leaning in to talk … [Kate] was laughing and giggling." Jon split from Jennifer in 2015, while Kate responded to Len Wiseman's petition for divorce in April.
Melanie Brown and Stephen Belafonte's divorce has been dramatic, to say the least. Now comes the latest in the saga: Stephen is claiming he's broke and homeless in the wake of their split and wants Mel to fork over some support payments. On May 26, TMZ reported that Stephen filed legal documents in which he claims he's "couch surfing with friends" and can't afford a place. Though he didn't name a figure, he did indicate that he wants at least $200,000 for his divorce lawyers and $55,000 for his accountant. "We lived a very comfortable, upper-class lifestyle… money was never an obstacle," he wrote in court documents, according to TMZ, which added that Stephen also noted he has a $60,000 balance on his credit card and his inability to pay it is ruining his credit. Meanwhile, Mel B is taking home between $220,000 and $250,000 a month, he claims.
The Cannes Film Festival hands out prestigious awards to actors and filmmakers, so we'll take it upon ourselves to name Joaquin Phoenix and girlfriend Rooney Mara 2017's top contenders in the adorable lovebirds category. According to Vulture, Joaquin showed up near the end of the festival and was spotted out late with Rooney, who appeared to have gone to France just to support her guy. He was "nuzzling Rooney's neck as they headed home around 2 a.m.," according to the website. When Joaquin snagged the Best Actor prize for his performance in "You Were Never Really Here" at the festival's closing ceremony, he seemed a little confused and asked Rooney, "am I supposed to go up there?" "Before I came here, I told my girlfriend it was going to be a really good experience because I was going to get crushed and that would be really humbling," he later said at a press conference. "I thought it would be great to know what it's like to be unanimously disliked. That was my expectation coming here, so this is, um, better." Joaquin and Rooney reportedly fell for one another on the set of "Mary Magdalene." In February, a source told the New York Post the two were "madly in love."
There's a new lady in Charlie Sheen's life. A paparazzo caught up with the "Two and a Half Men" alum as he was leaving a celebration for his daughter, Lola, at Giorgio Baldi restaurant in Santa Monica, California, on June 1, and during the chat, Charlie made a point of introducing the photographer to a young blonde woman who joined him on camera. "It's my daughter's birthday," he explains in a video posted on TMZ. "She's 12. This is my girlfriend — that's Jules. No one's got a photo of us yet." Though he said little else about Jules, Charlie did share his thoughts on Donald Trump's decision to leave the Paris climate agreement. "It's a dark day for planet earth," Charlie said. Since announcing he's HIV-positive, the actor has been spending more time in Mexico, where he reportedly owns a home.

Did Madonna and Zac Efron hook up? He wouldn't confirm or deny it but Jimmy Kimmel sure did try to find out during Zac's May 25 appearance on his late-night show. Zac — who grew visibly flustered during his visit — and Madge were seated next to each other at the recent Conor McGregor UFC fight at Madison Square Garden and were seen chatting and laughing ringside and Madonna even repeatedly tapped Zac's arm at one point to get his attention. "Is it possible that she was trying to have sex with you?" Jimmy asked Zac. "Because Madonna is an irresistible person. When she sets her sights on someone, there's really no escaping." Zac replied, "She's captivating in that way. I can't confirm nor deny that." After Jimmy showed video of Zac and Madonna's interactions, Zac joked, "I guess you can say she tapped me. She tapped this." Zac also called the pop star "lovely," "amazing" and "rad."
During a May 24 appearance on "Watch What Happens Live," Bethenny Frankel admitted that she once dated Jennifer Lopez's new man, former Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez, back in 2009 after he split with his wife. "I went out with him on two dates," the "Real Housewives of New York City" star said. As for A-Rod's kissing skills? "I honestly don't remember," she added. On the same episode of "WWHL," fellow guest Eric Stonestreet from "Modern Family" confirmed widespread reports that he and Bethenny had dated in recent years. "I mean, we met and I think we both decided that we make much better friends," Eric said, clinking glasses with Bethenny before adding, "But she's a wonderful kisser."
It seems there's a new model in Marc Anthony's life. Just two months after he made things red carpet official with model Mariana Downing — barely a month after finalizing his divorce from Shannon de Lima — Marc shared a photo of himself getting cozy with Italian model Raffaella Modugno. "Making memories. Happy Memorial Day weekend. Wishing you the best 😘 ❤ @raffaellamodugno #forzanapoli," Marc captioned an Instagram photo of the two together on a couch on May 27. She re-grammed the same image. But here's where it gets even more confusing : After that, photos surfaced of Marc with ex-wife Shannon aboard a yacht in Miami, and both looked to be awfully flirtatious. But according to Telemundo, the images were actually snapped a month ago. On May 30, Shannon tried to quell reconciliation rumors on Instagram, posting a bitmoji of a blonde woman saying, "Everybody just chill." She captioned the image: "a calmarse!!!!!!" which, in English, means "calm down." Does she mean us or Marc?!

The drama in the divorce between former "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" stars Phaedra Parks and Apollo Nida is continuing: He now wants their prenuptial agreement, signed almost eight years ago, to be ripped up. TMZ reported on May 31 that Apollo, who's serving time in federal prison, filed documents arguing that the court should dismiss the prenup he and Phaedra signed in late 2009 because that was before she inked a deal to star on "RHOA," which created a financial windfall for them. He claims that their finances increased drastically and that should be taken into consideration when it comes to splitting up their assets. Phaedra filed for divorce back in 2014 after Apollo started an eight-year prison sentence for his role in a fraudulent auto-loan scheme. In November 2016, she claimed that the divorce had been finalized. But in March 2017, a judge sided with Apollo and threw out the judgement, noting that he was troubled by the fact that Phaedra misspelled Apollo's name in her paperwork and that it had been suggested that Apollo could attend future divorce hearings from prison, which was never a possibility, TMZ explained in a March 24 report. Apollo, who is now engaged to another woman, was also not informed about the final divorce hearing nor served with documents letting him know the divorce had been finalized. As for their prenup, Phaedra insists that it's ironclad.

The image, which she captioned with heart emojis, shows her sitting on Ryan's lap while he kisses her on the cheek. The pair previously dated but split in late 2014 before reconnecting last year.

On May 11, People magazine reported that the couple had moved in together in Ryan's new Manhattan pad where he's been living since landing his "Live With Kelly and Ryan" co-hosting gig.
