Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and Jen Harley welcomed daughter Ariana Sky in early April. Less than a month later, they officially called it quits after first taking to social media to air their dirty laundry. "Note to self, can't turn a natural born HOE, into a HOUSEWIFE, if you find them in the gutter then leave them in the gutter," the "Jersey Shore" star wrote on his Instagram Story on April 29, three days after the fifth episode of "Jersey Shore: Family Vacation" — which showed him getting dangerously close to cheating — first aired. (On the episode, he also complained that "it's hard having a kid on the way and being with someone you're not sure you should be with" and said that he probably wouldn't be with Jen if she hadn't gotten pregnant and admitted that he's still in love with ex-girlfriend Sammi Giancola, whom he called the love of his life.) Jen responded on her own Instagram Story, writing, "You can't turn a coke head into a father." After that, Ronnie implied that he was angry Jen kept a video of herself and a former partner having sex, and Jen shared a screengrab of a text message conversation during which Ronnie purportedly threatened to send the video to her grandmother and 11-year-old son from a previous relationship. Though Ronnie publicly apologized for his outburst, it wasn't the end of the drama. Jen shared an Instagram Live of herself and Ronnie fighting on April 30, the same day E! News reported they were done. "He apologized for everything and admitted where he had been wrong but he also wants what's best for his daughter and he realizes this is not a healthy environment for her," a source told E! "They have split but for now they are both living in his Las Vegas house. Jen will most likely be moving out."
On May 2, model Paulina Porizkova announced via Instagram that she and her husband of 28 years, The Cars frontman Ric Ocasek, "have been peacefully separated for the past year" and are "no longer a couple." In her metaphor-filled post, she explained, "Our family always has been — and still is — a well-built car. When the four of us are together, we can go wherever the road takes us. But as a bicycle, my husband and I no longer pedal in unison. So we're ditching the bicycle." She added that she and Ric, who have two adult sons, still share a love for one another that "is so wide and deep it's practically tangible, and that sort of love can never disappear." She said fans can expect to continue to see happy family photos of her and her ex with their sons in the future.
In the wake of Miranda Lambert's most recent cheating scandal, her ex-fiance, former country singer Jeff Allen, took to Twitter to accuse her of cheating on him with Blake Shelton, who was married to his first wife at the time. On April 26, Jeff tweeted of Blake, "You know, i've always given you the benefit of the doubt and chalked it up to just being human, But you must be one arrogant SOB to pop off something like this, when I know d— good and well you were cheating on your wife and Miranda was cheating on me when you two started up … I kept my mouth shut for 13 years. Sorry, his karma tweet rubbed me wrong. All of this is pointless." (He's since deleted the tweets.) "I'm sure Miranda did [Blake] dirty just like she did me, but he wasn't thinking about me when he was cheating with her, so I don't know why he thinks it's karma," Jeff told Radar Online as part of an April 27 report. "A friend of mine sent me Blake's tweet and I just thought it was arrogant and off-putting. I just thought, 'Man, go on and live your life and do your own thing.' I'd opened shows for him and knew people around town that knew him and I'd just never said anything. But his tweet just rubbed me up so much," continued Jeff. "I wasn't doing it to stick up for Miranda — I'm not trying to let her off the hook, because it takes two." According to Radar, Miranda dumped Jeff over the phone after three years as a couple.
Meanwhile, Blake Shelton has backed away from his cryptic "karma" tweet: "It was a personal thing that's in a small circle of my people and that's why it was written the way it was, and then people took it and make it into what they want to make it into, which I don't want any part of that," he told "Extra" on April 30. "But at the same time, I can't but help to think it's funny how these fires get lit and it takes off and I don't have time to care, that's why I've kind of moved on."
On April 30, TMZ published photos of Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik locking lips on the streets of New York City the previous day — a month and a half after they announced they were calling it quits after two years as a couple.

Justin Timberlake revealed during a May 1 appearance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" that he once hooked up with a member of the Spice Girls — though he stopped short of saying which one. (The revelation came during a game of Never Have I Ever that the singer-actor played along with his *NSYNC bandmates.) But a resurfaced 2004 interview Emma Bunton gave to Jonathan Ross seemed to shed some light on the mystery: "You had a one nighter with him, is that right?" the British broadcaster asked the erstwhile Baby Spice of J.T., adding that he "heard this to be true." Responded Emma, "We hung out and partied a bit and he was very sweet. … He spoke about this first, 'cause otherwise I would not have said a word. He's very sweet." (The duo are pictured together in 2003 with English singer-songwriter Melanie Blatt.)
TMZ reported on April 27 that two years after Dennis Quaid's estranged wife, Kimberly Buffington-Quaid, filed for divorce (for the second time), their marriage has officially legally ended. The duo will share joint custody of their 10-year-old twins, with Kimberly getting physical custody 75 percent of the time and a minimum of $13,750 a month in child support (more if Dennis makes more than $1.3 million in a single year). She's also getting a lump sum of $2 million in spousal support and another $1 million as a property settlement. The former couple will also split proceeds from the sale of the home they once shared. TMZ reports that as far as their other assets go, Dennis will keep their second home in Austin, Texas, a 2007 Land Rover, a 2012 Mercedes and a 2013 Honda, while Kimberly will keep her 2014 Mercedes. Residuals from movies that Dennis made before they tied the knot in 2004 are his sole property, but they will split the residuals for movies he made when they were married.

Radar Online reported on May 2 that Kasey Dexter — the woman with whom Mario Singer had an affair during his marriage to Ramona Singer — is now dating Peter Cook (pictured), who infamously cheated on Christie Brinkley during their 12-year marriage. (Mario broke up with Kasey and evicted her from his Florida home in February after he caught her cheating on him.) "Kasey and Mario got back together after he evicted her, but then they broke up again," a source told the webloid. "Peter Cook reached out to her over Instagram and they began texting." The architect reportedly invited the socialite to visit his home in East Hamptons from April 29 to May 1, and Kasey obliged "to make Mario jealous." Added the insider, "They got into a huge fight and [Mario] kicked her out so she agreed to stay with Peter for the weekend." But then Kasey fell for Peter: "She feels like she loves him, they clicked," said the source. "All he did was tell her she's beautiful. They spent the weekend having cocktails and doing activities together. … They have a lot in common. He told her he's falling for her too. He doesn't want her to contact Mario when she returns to Florida." According to the Radar source, Mario has been "begging for her back," but it's not looking good: Kasey "would date [Peter] seriously," said the source.
Jennifer Lopez's latest single, "El Anillo" ("The Ring"), hit the Internet on April 27. In the banger, J.Lo sings in Spanish, "I have never felt anything this grand / And your wild side drives me crazy / You've given me so much that I've been thinking / I already have it all, but / When will I get the ring?" The song launched speculation that the superstar is anxious for her boyfriend, Alex Rodriguez, to propose. But that's just not the case, she told "Extra" on May 1. "We knew there would be a lot of talk when I put out the song," she said. "I played it for him and he just laughed. I love the song. It's a great song and I think it's a very anthemic — demanding what you want, demanding respect, demanding a place in someone's life. … I felt like it was something that women definitely feel. I just love the beat, the lyrics, it had a great hook. When Alex heard it, he was fine with it. … I don't care what people say. I knew that people would talk about us, but it just didn't bother me. I'm so used to people talking about me, it doesn't matter!" But is she eager to tie the knot for the fourth time? "I am open to all of the greatest possibilities in life, whatever those may be," she said.

It's been months since NBC erased all traces of Matt Lauer amid a late 2017 sexual misconduct scandal, but his estranged wife, Annette Roque, has yet to officially pull the plug on their marriage. And it turns out there's a pretty big reason why: The duo, who reportedly have a prenup, are negotiating over money. "Annette could end up with half of everything," a source told In Touch as part of a May 2 report. (According to Money, Matt made more than $100 million over the course of his career.) But losing half of his fortune is actually the least of the father-of-three's concerns: "Matt's afraid Annette will reveal things she never has before and that his kids will lose respect for him. … This is his nightmare," said the source.
On April 28, Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary at their home in Los Angeles with A-listers including Kate Hudson, Goldie Hawn, Kurt Russell, Conan O'Brien, Martin Short, Jimmy Kimmel, Isla Fisher, Barack Obama and Oprah Winfrey.

Katy Perry seemingly confirmed that she and Orlando Bloom are exclusive again during an April 23 interview with "Entertainment Tonight" reporter Lauren Zima. When asked if she would ever date an "American Idol" contestant, the "AI" judge replied, "No, I'm sorry I have been spoken for and speak for myself. And I'm very happy!"

Lauren then referenced a photo that Katy shared on her Instagram Story — a shot of herself with a drawing of her beau holding a broom, along with the label "Orlando Broom" — asking, "Are you a Mrs. Broom?" Katy said, "No, I'm not a Mrs. Broom," and then suspiciously winked into the camera. Five days later, the actor opened up about his off-and-on love, whom he called "a remarkable human being," during an interview with The Times: "I wouldn't have imagined anything happening. And, you know, when you get hit sideways you get hit sideways," he said, adding that "you don't pick who you fall in love with." That same day, the "Pirates of the Caribbean" actor joined his lady love and her mother at The Vatican, where they met Pope Francis. In an Instagram Story from their trip, Katy referred to Orlando as her "darling." The next day, People magazine reported that, according to a source, the couple are "great" and "dating exclusively again" and that "things seem more serious" this time around.

Melissa McCarthy spent her 10th wedding anniversary making out with a man who was not her husband, actor-director Ben Falcone.

Melissa told Wonderwall.com on April 30.
DailyMail.com raised questions about Jennifer Lawrence's relationship with director David O. Russell after they were caught on-camera walking with their arms entwined after dinner in New York City on April 26. The duo appeared especially friendly — which should come as no surprise considering the 59-year-old filmmaker has directed the 27-year-old actress in three films so far. Perhaps David, who has a girlfriend of more than a decade, was simply steadying Jennifer, who was wearing high-heeled sandals, as they walked together in the rain. Or maybe not.
Charlyne Yi's husband, Jet Elfman, filed for divorce on April 27, The Blast reported three days later.

Less than three months after Tracy Anderson took to Instagram on Feb. 5 to announce that she and Nick Riley had gotten engaged, the celebrity trainer and the Scottish hedge fund manager have called it quits. According to Page Six, Tracy was stunned when Nick unexpectedly dumped her, and to make matters worse, she's reportedly pregnant. "Tracy is inconsolable," said a source. "She completely trusted him with this process and is at the height of her career. They froze embryos together late last year, but Nick wanted to try for a baby without undergoing IVF as soon as they were engaged. … He was pushing her for a July wedding amidst her weeks of morning sickness, then he abruptly decided he didn't want to move forward with the relationship or the baby. It all came out of nowhere." Tracy is reportedly in her first trimester and is surrounding herself with "close friends who witnessed Nick's actions and saw how he manipulated her … with the promise of a life together." Her rep declined to confirm or deny the report to Page Six.

"We're rehearsing that scene in the street, where he's running after her, and he calls me over after one rehearsal. He's all rattled," recalled the filmmaker. "I said, 'What's up?' And he goes, 'Diane just told me she loves me.' I couldn't tell if he was horrified or thrilled. So I was like, 'Yes, I know, I wrote that line. It's in the script, Jack.' And he said, 'Oh, okay.' He thought she meant it." (Hey, that's why she's one of the greats!)
Chris Zylka told Page Six on April 27 that his fiancée, Paris Hilton, is totally in charge of planning their upcoming nuptials. "I think you leave that to the woman. It's her big day," he said. "I think the only definite thing is that we want to keep it in L.A. to have family there." When asked if he was excited to tie the knot, the actor replied, "How couldn't you be?" His bride-to-be echoed the sentiment later in the evening: "Of course I'm excited I'm getting married this year," she said during a Tribeca Film Festival panel. "I'm excited for the next phase in my life and to start a family and find true happiness, because yes this is so much fun and I'm still going to be the businesswoman and the girl boss that I am, but I'm also going to be a mom. I can't wait for that day. What I've always wanted is just to find the man of my dreams, someone I can trust, [be] my best friend, and someone who would never hurt me or betray me. He's right there. I love you, Chris."
