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 September and early October 2019, starting with this surprise split… TMZ reported on Oct. 1 that Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott called it quits "several weeks ago" after struggling "to make the relationship work for a while." According to the webloid's sources, the pair have broken up in the past and have always "managed to work it out" — so it's possible the current split is just temporary. TMZ added that for now, their relationship status is "complicated, but single." A People magazine source, meanwhile, said that the duo "are taking some time but [are] not done." Said the source, "They still have some trust issues but their problems have stemmed more from the stress of their lifestyles." (Earlier this year, there were reports that Kylie accused Travis of cheating. At the time, he strongly denied that he'd been unfaithful.) "There were several issues that made them decide to take a break," said another People source, adding that the makeup mogul "is all about family life and really wants a second baby" while the rapper is focused on his career. "She still has trust issues with Travis. He hasn't been giving her the commitment that she needs," continued the insider. "Travis isn't ready to give her all that she wants." The source added that Kylie "really wants" what big sis Kim Kardashian West has with her husband, Kanye West. Said an Us Weekly source, "Kylie still loves Travis and this isn't considered a full breakup to either of them." A second Us Weekly source said that although the couple "have been very much in love," they "have had breaks throughout their relationship," and even when they were at their best, "they didn't have a traditional relationship in terms of spending the night together every night." The second insider added that "everyone around them thinks they will get back together." According to TMZ, however, sources are claiming the pair broke up because they fell out of love.

The Sun reported on Sept. 30 that, according to a source, Adele is dating Skepta after building a friendship with the grime rapper-producer over the past few years. "[They] have been there for each other a lot after both their relationships split up. They have a close bond and there's definitely a special connection," a source — whose word should probably be taken with a grain of salt — told the British tabloid. "They're spending more and more time together. Some of their friends are hoping and predicting they could end up being a great couple one day. … They are both private about their love lives and they are both committed to their children first and foremost as well." Skepta was linked to Naomi Campbell in early 2018 before welcoming a daughter with another woman, while Adele recently split from husband Simon Konecki, with whom she shares son Angelo. Speaking of her ex…

Four days after Hailey Bieber had a bachelorette party in West Hollywood with a group of ladies including bestie Kendall Jenner and sister Alaia Baldwin, she and Justin Bieber — whom she legally wed in a New York City courthouse in September 2018 — kicked off their formal wedding weekend with an outdoor rehearsal dinner at the Montage Palmetto Bluff resort in Bluffton, South Carolina. According to E! News, guests including Kendall, Joan Smalls, Justine Skye and Scooter Braun arrived at the Sept. 29 party via water taxi. The following evening, the duo exchanged vows for the second time in a religious ceremony attended by even more A-listers: Kylie Jenner and daughter Stormi Webster, Kris Jenner and boyfriend Corey Gamble, Jaden Smith, Dan Smyers of Dan + Shay and Leonardo DiCaprio's girlfriend Camila Morrone, as well as Justin's very first girlfriend, Caitlin Beadles, who reportedly inspired his song "Never Let You Go." Us Weekly reported on Oct. 1 that, according to a source, in the wake of their second wedding, the bride and groom "are far more emotionally and mentally supportive of each other than ever before." Continued the insider of the duo, who postponed their big wedding several times while dealing with Justin's mental health issues, "It has been a process, but they have worked through it and have come out on the other side of things. They are in a much healthier and understanding space now and are so happy to be celebrating their love with their families and friends." Hailey has also reportedly gotten over her husband's past romance with Selena Gomez: "[She] isn't insecure about Justin and Selena's former relationship anymore and knows that she is the one who has the ring," said the source. "Selena is not a threat to her at this point." Speaking of the "Bad Liar" singer…
Us Weekly reported on Sept. 30 that, according to a source, Selena Gomez is "in a good place" in the wake of former longtime off-and-on love Justin Bieber's second wedding to Hailey Bieber. "Selena knows she's better off without Justin, and that it's the healthiest decision for her," said the source. "She is open to dating, but right now she is solely focused on herself and enjoying life to the best of her ability and getting back to being the Selena that she and all of her close ones knew prior to dating Justin. … She has been hanging out with old friends and family and keeping herself out of the limelight and away from public places where she might feel bombarded or overwhelmed." Selena and Justin dated off and on for seven years.

She's doing her thing now in Paris and killin' it so…" Then during an appearance on the Oct. 1 episode of "Watch What Happens Live," he said that he "may be single" and that he's interested in dating "a normal girl" — which Gigi Hadid definitely is not!
In other Tyler Cameron news… On Sept. 26, the male model made headlines again when he stepped out for dinner in Los Angeles with "Bachelor in Paradise" alum Kristina Schulman. But multiple media outlets later reported that the pair were simply hanging out at a sponsored influencer event. A few days later, on the Oct. 2 episode of the "Bachelor Happy Hour" podcast, Kristina was surprised to learn that her ex-boyfriend, Dean Unglert, said he was once in love with her. "We've never said it to each other. I didn't know," she said. "It was never verbalized but the feeling was mutual." She went on to say how she's changed since she romanced Dean on Season 4 of "Bachelor in Paradise" in 2017: "Following [that season of] 'Paradise,' for that following year, Dean and I tried still seeing each other. That was very insightful. I learned a lot from that relationship," she said. "I've learned so much from it. I've dated since, and I definitely feel that I'm much stronger now. I'm not willing to put up with so much [crap]."
Halsey and Evan Peters have been dating for "several weeks," Us Weekly reported on Sept. 28 after DailyMail.com published exclusive photos of the new couple holding hands at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Los Angeles on Sept. 21.

"I think I'm done with roses, so the Mirrorball [Trophy] is what we have our eye on."
During a Sept. 28 red carpet interview with Us Weekly, Rachel Bilson didn't exactly deny that she's dating Nick Viall after she and the former star of "The Bachelor" sparked romance rumors earlier in the month. "I don't want to talk about it," she said when asked about her relationship with the reality star. Chimed in her pal Jaime King, who was also on hand during the Us Weekly interview, "That's private. We'll keep that private for now." (The "Sin City" actress also shared what kind of guy she'd like her friend to date: "I want someone that loves her, adores her [and] cherishes her," Jaime said. "Someone that is funny, brilliant and smart. Someone who is enthusiastic, an extrovert but also a domestic because she likes to stay at home, someone that really understands what she loves and supports her with the kind of loyalty that she supports others.") Us Weekly asked Nick about the former "The O.C." star at a separate Sept. 28 event: "I'm not really defining my relationships right now but she's definitely a friend and she's great and I always enjoy spending time with Rachel," he said, adding that he's looking for a woman "with a great heart" who's willing to put up with him. "In all seriousness, I think I'm eager to meet someone but not in a rush to do it just because," he said. "You don't have to rush to figure out the rest of your life."

On the Sept. 29 episode of the "Almost Famous" podcast, Mike Johnson said that he and Demi Lovato have "gone on more than one date" and that the singer-actress "kisses really well." The Bachelor Nation star went on to say that he's "getting to know her for her," that he's "all about her" and that "she definitely was the aggressor" in their relationship. "I find it incredibly sexy. I love that," he said. "Like you want me, come at me. If I want you, I'm going to come at you and I'm coming at her as well." He continued of publicly dating the superstar, "To be honest, I personally don't like it. I am very private with my relationships straight up. But she's in this light and that's why I said she's so humble and I think the world of her because she has been able to have to deal with this crap. I can't even imagine from her perspective. … She's a woman that I treat like a regular individual. I'm a man that she treats like a regular man, and we do like each other and we're getting to know each other." He also joked that although he's "a gentleman" who's "not going to kiss and tell," he "might not be a gentleman to her always." On Sept. 30, Us Weekly reported that, according to a source, the pair are just "casually dating" and their relationship "isn't anything serious." Said the source, "[Demi] is broadening her horizons and starting to put herself out there a bit more. … She thinks Mike is funny [and] smart. He makes her laugh and is respectful of her boundaries. All of these qualities are very important and intriguing to Demi." The insider added that Demi's family "isn't too invested" in her romance with Mike, but they "think he's a nice guy" and "everyone is collectively seeing where things go."
In other Mike Johnson news… During a Sept. 27 interview with Us Weekly, the Bachelor Nation star shut down rumors that he and Tayshia Adams, who's currently in a long-distance relationship with John Paul Jones, were flirting during the iHeartRadio Music Festival five days earlier. "Tayshia and I FaceTimed JPJ when we were in the car going to some event. She is happy and is beautiful in her relationship with JPJ. [My Bachelor Nation pals] would never let me try to mack on our friend's girlfriend. And vice versa," he said, adding that the flirtation talk is "just BS." Added Mike of Tayshia, "She's an attractive woman, but not for me. She's in a relationship and I may or may not be talking to someone as well. … We live in a day and age where if I give a woman a hug, and she's an attractive woman, they may say, 'Oh, they're together.' It's ridiculous at this point in time." As for whether or not he'd be interested in starring on the next season of "Bachelor in Paradise," Mike said it all depends: "I would probably not go to 'Paradise' again simply because hopefully I'll be in love next year — hopefully sooner than that," he said.
Kendall Jenner made a preemptive move to shut down rumors that she's dating the man she brought as her plus one to Justin Bieber and Hailey Bieber's wedding: "We don't date he's just my date," she captioned a mirror selfie with pal Fai Khadra, to whom she's been linked in the past.
Cassie Randolph took to Instagram on Sept. 26 to slam recent reports that her relationship with Colton Underwood is somehow unbalanced because they're not engaged yet: "Colton and I are very happy and our relationship is in a good place," she wrote in a lengthy text post. "Is our relationship perfect? No, it is very normal with its ups and downs and compromises. Despite the microscope on our relationship, we are trying to stay focused on what is important and grown in the direction of getting stronger and closer every day. We know that in order for us to work, we need to focus on each other and not the craziness that sometimes surrounds us. … [We] are happy in our relationship and taking things at our own pace." She went on to discuss how difficult it's been navigating their relationship in the limelight — from the pressure to please their fans by getting engaged to the feeling that their "every move together is analyzed and every word is dissected." She concluded by saying that their goal is "to develop a healthy, NORMAL relationship" and that they're "together because we BOTH WANT to be" but that "what happens in the future between us is to be determined." The following day, Cassie told Us Weekly that she and Colton are "100 percent on the same page" about their relationship. She explained that she decided to open up about their romance on Instagram because she "just didn't want the wrong idea to be out there." She added that "it's just a lot harder than I think I ever realized it would be — coming off ['The Bachelor'], being in a relationship and having it so scrutinized in the public."

On the Oct. 1 episode of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," Tiffany Haddish doubled down on her previous claims that she hooked up with Chingy during the early 2000s. After the rapper caught wind of the interview, he took to Instagram to shoot down Tiffany's claims: "Now @tiffanyhaddish knows damn well that's a lie," he captioned a clip from the "Girls Trip" star's appearance on Ellen's daytime talk show. He then alleged that it was actually his brother with whom Tiffany hooked up. "But she liked me," he added. "Hey if we gone be honest let's be honest." During the interview, Tiffany also shared the three things she's looking for in a man: "Good credit, no kids and more money than me," she said, adding that her favorite body part on a man are "arms that can pick me up." The comedienne also revealed that her first celebrity crush was "Family Matters" character Steve Urkel, who was portrayed by Jaleel White.
Gina Kirschenheiter debuted her new boyfriend, Travis Mullen, on Instagram on Sept. 30. "Always find a reason to laugh. It may not add years to your life but will surely add life to your years," she captioned a slideshow of two photos of them together. The following day, she dished on their relationship during an interview with People magazine: "We just really clicked from very early on," she said. "We have the same perspective on a lot stuff and a lot of the same values. … We really make each other laugh. We're both just goofballs. It works." The mother of three added that she started seeing her new beau in August after being set up by a mutual friend. "I met him and it clicked so early. He's just a really nice person," she gushed. "I just know he's a person that's extremely trustworthy, extremely loyal." Meanwhile, Gina told Us Weekly that Travis has opened her mind to the prospect of getting married again: "I really was thinking 100 percent, no way," she said. "It's just a piece of paper, it's just a contract — I'm not doing that again. There's no reason, I already have my children. Being in this new relationship has kind of opened my mind a little bit to possibly, maybe [getting remarried]. So you never know. I'm staying open." She added that Travis "has nothing to do with" her reality TV world and "knows nothing about it," though she's "hopeful" he'll eventually agree to appear on "The Real Housewives of Orange County" — if and when he's "comfortable" making the plunge into reality television. "It's just [been] a couple of months. So it's still new, but we definitely spend a lot of time together," she continued. "I would say feelings developed quicker than maybe they would if we weren't able to see each other so much, so it's nice." The duo have also spent time with each other's kids, she said. As for her divorce from, Matthew Kirschenheiter, "I think I'm on the good side of it. … The good side of the bad," Gina told Us Weekly. "It's all right, I think it's OK. … I think I've gotten myself to a place where I understand that this is the best thing for me and my children and my family and I feel good about that." She went on to say that and her ex keep their communication to a minimum — they only "correspond through a government monitored site" that inhibits them from engaging with each other negatively. She added that she's "hopeful" their relationship will eventually improve so that they're able to co-parent to the best of their abilities.
Bethenny Frankel sparked rumors that she and her boyfriend of a year, Paul Bernon, are engaged when she took to Instagram on Sept. 26 to post a photo of herself wearing a massive diamond sparkler on her ring finger while sharing a tender moment with her daughter, Bryn Hoppy. But a People magazine source quickly cleared up the confusion, saying that the former star of "The Real Housewives of New York City" is "not engaged" but simply "has an amazing jewelry closet."
On the Sept. 26 episode of First We Feast's "Hot Ones" YouTube series, Ashton Kutcher said that he and Mila Kunis keep the spark in their relationship alive by having date nights: "My wife and I, we go on a date every Wednesday," he said. The next day, E! News shed some light on how the duo have been handling the fallout from revelations the actor's ex-wife, Demi Moore, made about him in her new memoir, "Inside Out." Said a source, "The unwanted attention has been hard to deal with. [Ashton and Mila] have no interest in being dragged into the spotlight or reliving the past. Ashton knew it was coming and he did have a heads up. But of course he would prefer [he] not be brought into this. … Demi was always very private so it came as a surprise that she wanted to air all of her dirty laundry and have so much focus and attention on her personal life. Mila and Ashton are just riding out the media attention and know it will die down soon. … Mila is very supportive and understanding. It was a different time in Ashton's life and feels like a lifetime ago for all of them. They have moved on from all of that and have a completely different life now with their kids and family."
During an interview for the cover of the November 2019 issue of Vanity Fair, which hit the Internet on Oct. 1, Joaquin Phoenix revealed that before they were an item, he "looked up" Rooney Mara, to whom he's now engaged. According to VF, the three-time Oscar nominee thought the actress "despised him" when they first met on the set of 2013's "Her" but "later learned she was just shy and actually liked him too." Said Joaquin, "She's the only girl I ever looked up on the Internet. … We were just friends, email friends. I'd never done that. Never looked up a girl online."
During a Sept. 27 interview with Us Weekly, Becca Kufrin described marrying her fiancé, Garrett Yrigoyen, as a "distant future" plan. The former star of "The Bachelorette" said that, for now, she and her husband-to-be are focusing on adjusting to living together while getting inspiration from various friends' and family members' weddings. "I'm like, 'Let's get ideas from them, let's let them have their moment and then eventually once we're ready and fully settled [we can start wedding planning],'" she said. "I think once we buy a place and are actually settled somewhere and not just renting, we'll probably get to that next step." Two days later, Us Weekly reported that, according to a source, the duo — who recently faced breakup rumors — are "really enjoying being engaged and getting to know even more about each other than they already do." Said the source, "Moving in together was a bit of an adjustment at first — as it is for any couple — but they feel at home now. … Things are going well." (Becca told Us Weekly that living together has been "great" — even though "it's different" because she "went from living on my own and being used to being very independent and doing things on my own terms at all times." She added that Garrett is "easy to live with.") The Us Weekly source also shed some light on the pair's dynamic: "Garrett is the more reserved one in the relationship and doesn't always feel as comfortable as Becca does in the public eye. He has been presented with new and exciting opportunities since being on the show, but he is still a low-key, nature-loving guy at heart. He likes leaving the spotlight on Becca," said the insider.
Another Bachelor Nation couple that's not quite ready to exchange vows…? During separate Sept. 27 interviews with Us Weekly, Katie Morton and Chris Bukowski said they're focusing on figuring out where to live — not planning a wedding after getting engaged on the finale of Season 6 of "Bachelor in Paradise" earlier this year. Katie said they're "doing great" since the show ended and have been enjoying integrating their friends and families. "I'm just finally getting home and everything's getting back to normal. So we're excited to just, like, breathe," she said. "We're going to first try and figure out what our individual lives look like right now. … Everything is so busy and hectic. Then [we'll] try and see what cities we're spending the most time in, what cities we love the most, what makes the most sense for us and do it naturally — not try and force anything." Echoed Chris, "Our relationship has been only getting better every day. … We've spent a lot of time with each other's families. I was down in Florida, she was in Chicago. We're good." But they're not "talking about a wedding right now," he said, adding that "the living situation and meshing our lives together is the most important thing right now."
Bindi Irwin took to Instagram on Sept. 29 to reveal that she "said yes to the dress." The animal conservationist shared a photo of her hand (with her stunning engagement ring on full display) protruding from the cuff of a lacy sleeve in front of racks of wedding dresses. "I can't wait," her fiancé, Chandler Powell, wrote in the comments. Her brother, Robert Irwin, meanwhile, re-tweeted the pic and added that he "can't wait" to walk his big sis down the aisle. Bindi has previously said that her little brother, who helped stage Chandler's proposal, will escort her down the aisle as a tribute to their late father, Steve Irwin. "I think that's what would make dad happiest," she recently told E! News. On Sept. 27, the groom-to-be told Us Weekly that he and Bindi "are definitely going to incorporate khaki" into their wedding, which will "definitely" feature animals. "We'll walk down the aisle with koalas. It'll be great!" chimed in the bride-to-be. (It's unclear if she was joking.) They plan to tie the knot at the Irwin family's Australia Zoo in 2020.
Lauren Bushnell and Chris Lane are one step closer to tying the knot: On Sept. 28, the duo celebrated their engagement with their families at the Cuddle Creek Farm in Kernersville, North Carolina — the country crooner's hometown. The bride-to-be took to Instagram to share a slideshow of photos from the engagement party, which she captioned, "Got to celebrate all weekend long in Chris' hometown with our family, friends, and dogs. At one point I even looked at Chris and said 'I wish we were just getting married tonight!'"
During a Sept. 28 interview with People magazine, Andie MacDowell dished on daughter Margaret Qualley's romance with Pete Davidson, saying that although she hasn't met the "Saturday Night Live" star in person yet, she's a fan of his relationship with her youngest child. "She has a beautiful relationship with him but I don't want to step on her relationship too much," said the "Groundhog Day" star. "They have a nice relationship," she added.
Brody Jenner and his new girlfriend, Josie Canseco, made their red-carpet debut — er, orange-carpet debut — at the Nights of the Jack VIP preview event in Calabasas, California, on Oct. 2. (The reality star's former partner, Kaitlynn Carter, was also on hand.) A few days earlier, Brody gushed to TMZ that Josie is "one of the most incredible women I've ever met in my entire life" and that he's looking forward to meeting her father, baseball legend Jose Canseco.
On the Oct. 2 episode of her "Coffee Convos" podcast, Kailyn Lowry said that if she had to choose between remarrying her ex-husband, Javi Marroquin, and going back in time to never marry him at all, she'd choose to "never be married." Said the "Teen Mom" star, "I could never, I would never marry Javi ever again. … Based on experience, I would rather have never been married than to marry the same person three times." The duo, who share son Lincoln, were married from 2012 to 2016. Kailyn went on to say that if she ever gets married again, she wouldn't want the marriage to be legally binding. "I don't know that I would go legal with it. I think I would do like a commitment ceremony," she said. Meanwhile, on the Oct. 1 episode of "Teen Mom 2," which was filmed around the time that Javi proposed to Lauren Comeau, Kailyn said that he'd been cheating on Lauren since she got pregnant with their son, Eli. She also claimed that Javi tried to hook up with her sometime last year.
Us Weekly reported on Oct. 2 that, according to a source, Kris Jenner and boyfriend Corey Gamble are "doing great" in spite of some recent hiccups between him and certain members of her family.

During an Oct. 1 interview with Us Weekly, Kaitlyn Bristowe and Jason Tartick said that when they get engaged, it won't be with a Neil Lane ring á la Bachelor Nation tradition. "I would prefer not to have a Neil Lane ring. I love his rings. It just [represents something else]," said the former star of "The Bachelorette," who got engaged to Shawn Booth on the finale of Season 11 in 2015. (She told Us Weekly that when her ex popped the question, it "didn't even feel real" because the moment was so produced and she knew it was coming, which she called "bizarre.") Her other condition for getting engaged is that her beau of less than a year doesn't propose on the Jumbotron while supporting his favorite football team, the Buffalo Bills. She also rejected the idea of having a televised wedding: "I've been to a couple 'Bachelor' weddings, and I do see how produced it can be and I just — I don't want that," she said. Jason chimed in to say he was initially open to the idea of having a televised wedding until he saw all the drama that went down at Krystal Nielson and Chris Randone's recent nuptials. "I was just so bothered by the way it was," he said. "They had to pick people and assign them to tables, which was clearly produced. … It was just so goofy. They have such a great story and they looked so great and it was beautiful and I felt like that just took away from a special day."
The Jasmine Brand reported on Sept. 28 that Safaree Samuels and Erica Mena, who are currently expecting their first child together, are planning to tie the knot on Oct. 7 as "Love & Hip Hop" cameras roll. The duo, who got engaged in late 2018, weathered a cheating scandal over the summer.
During a Sept. 27 interview with Us Weekly, Connor Saeli said that his breakup from Whitney Fransway was "very mutual" and that they're "definitely on good terms." Said the "Bachelor in Paradise" star, "We left 'Paradise' after spending three days together [and] basically we were immediately thrown into a long-distance relationship … whereas the couples that were on the beach for the entire time got to spend time with each other, get to know each other and actually figure out if they want to be dating or stay together. … The two months after the show was really our 'Paradise' time of getting to know each other. I think ultimately, we had a lot of fun with each other, but just weren't right for each other in a relationship." He then shared what he's looking for in a girl: "Someone who's driven, adventurous, outgoing, those are really important to me," he said. "Someone that's independent too and really loves herself. I think it's really important to love yourself before you can give love to someone else. … You can live your own lives and support each other through that, but at the same time, kind of be together.
