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 early September 2019, starting with our new favorite couple… People magazine reported on Sept. 2 that, according to a source, Miley Cyrus and Kaitlynn Carter, who were first linked in early August, "live together" now and "are very happy." The source went on to say that the singer-actress is "doing great" and "moving on" — purportedly from her breakup with husband Liam Hemsworth. "She seems to have no regrets. She loves being with Kaitlynn," added the insider. Two days later, Us Weekly reported that, according to a source, Miley has "really fallen" for Kaitlynn, "and the feeling is mutual." Said the source, "Miley feels she can totally be herself with Kaitlynn, and is really comfortable around her." The insider went on to say that the two women "are on the same page … which is why they work so well together." The "Wrecking Ball" chart-topper reportedly adores the reality star's "free-spirited, nonjudgmental, fun personality" and the fact that they can do anything together. They're "just as happy doing low-key things together, like staying [in] and watching a movie" as going out and partying, said the source. During an interview with Cosmopolitan that hit the Internet on Aug. 29, Whitney Port echoed the "Miley and Kaitlyn are great" line, saying that her "The Hills: New Beginnings" co-star is in "a really good place" following her recent split from Brody Jenner. "I haven't needed to support her. She doesn't need my support," Whitney said of her pal. The Us Weekly source also noted that Brody is "happy that Kaitlynn's moved on and found love." Meanwhile, there have been some rumblings about the suspicious timeline of Kaitlynn and Miley's romance…

On the Sept. 2 episode of "The Hills: New Beginning," which was filmed months ago, Kaitlynn Carter and former partner Brody Jenner addressed the rumors that they were polyamorous during their relationship. (There have been reports that Kaitlynn and new love Miley Cyrus took their relationship to the next level before their recent breakups.) "We just… we like what we like," Brody said after a friend told him and Kaitlynn that there'd been rumblings about the nature of their relationship. Kaitlynn didn't exactly deny the allegations: "When Brody and I first were together, we were young, we were crazy, we were, like, you know, basically just trying to have the time of our lives, so we did a lot of things in our relationship that, you know, I certainly wouldn't say I regret, but the level of gossip that I feel happens in the group — it just makes me angry," she said in a confessional. The former couple's publicity-loving co-star Spencer Pratt — whose word should probably be taken with a grain of salt — shared his thoughts on the topic during an interview with Cosmopolitan that hit the Internet on Sept. 3: "It's tough for me to listen to Kaitlynn complain about people talking about her allegedly open relationship with Brody when we know she had a thing going with Miley. She already had something going on with her when these scenes were filming — maybe not physically, but definitely emotionally. No one's judging you for whatever it is you and Brody do when he's not sleeping in his car. We just don't want people to lie about their lives," he said. "My favorite is when she's like, 'Brody and I were wild, young, crazy kids.' Was that last week? Because you and Brody have only been together a minute. Are you older and more mature now that you're chilling on Miley's yacht? … I would love to know Liam Hemsworth's thoughts on Kaitlynn's recent displays of 'common decency.' You know what I call 'common decency'? Getting it on at your Italian villa and not in front of the paparazzi."

During an interview with "Entertainment Tonight" that popped up online on Sept. 4, Sam Asghari said that he "absolutely" sees marriage in his future with Britney Spears. "This is something that every couple should do. That's the whole point of a relationship — we are a family," he said, adding that "if we do ever get married, everybody's going to know." He went on to say that his mother and three sisters love the pop star and that he has an "absolutely amazing" relationship with her two sons with ex-husband Kevin Federline. He also recalled how he and Britney first connected on the set of her "Slumber Party" music video: "At the music video, we connected. We talked," he said. "We talked at the music video about what [we] like to eat — sushi — and then [exchanged] text messages and next thing you know, [we're] just like a normal couple." Continued Sam, "What I love the most about my relationship is the fact that it's so normal. It's not glamorous or anything. She inspires me in my work and I can give so much to her by going to the gym, by going to work, by having a balanced life. We can get inspired by each other here and there and really grow with each other."

The duo is reportedly butting heads over how to deal with their legal issues, with the actress eager to play ball while her husband remains defiant — he reportedly insisted (against their lawyers' advice) on taking a private jet to a recent court appearance and on rejecting the plea deal they were offered in April. Still, a second source tells Us Weekly that although Lori's friends "think she should leave him," she "refuses and says the ordeal has made them stronger."

Just you + me. @kevin.c.wendt you've taught me to love, learn and grow and I can't believe you've chosen me to spend this crazy life with. Wonder if I'll ever stop smiling? Probably not.

Many of you know @kennylattimore as an incredibly talented vocalist and while I couldn't be more proud of his legendary work as an artist — to me (and all who know him personally) — it's who he is on the inside that makes him a star. His beautiful spirit has captured my heart. ❤️Kenny: you are one of the kindest, most genuine souls on the planet. I've never met anyone like you. In a world where I was told my standards were too high, you came in my life from day one & exceeded them all! You made me thankful that I refused to settle. You showed me the essence & integrity of true love. The first time you took me by the hand to lead us in prayer I knew this would be different. And I was right. (just remember, I'm always right 😆) You embody all I've ever wanted in a life partner."

"I've already talked to her. She's a good person. She's very nice. She's very sweet," she said, adding that the entire situation has "completely ripped my heart out." In July, there were reports that Andrew had been unfaithful.

Although Kirsten Dunst recently said that she and Jesse Plemons have yet to officially tie the knot, the duo sparked rumors that they'd secretly married by referring to each other as husband and wife when the actress received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Aug. 29. Jesse, who was introduced as Kirsten's "husband," gushed about his "wife" during a speech in her honor: "Aside from the brilliant actor you are, I have also had the even greater pleasure of getting to know you as a person outside of work," he said. "Seeing the kind of mother and wife, daughter, sister, friend and cohort you are is why I and all of your friends and everyone else are here today and why we all love you."
During an appearance on the Sept. 3 episode of "Good Morning America," Tarek El Moussa revealed that his new girlfriend, Heather Rae Young, recently met his ex-wife, Christina Anstead. But he didn't prepare either of the two women for what was about to go down before the big introduction: "I was like, 'Oh, I'm coming over to see the kids. By the way, my girlfriend is coming. See you in five!'" he recalled. "That's literally how it went down. … I looked at Heather, and I was like, 'Are you ready?' And she was like, 'Ready for what?' I was like, 'Well, we're going to go see the kids, and my ex-wife is there.' And she goes, 'What do you mean?' And I'm like, 'No. We're going right now.' She's like, 'Right now. Right now?' I was like, 'Right now. Right now.' So that's how they met." Fortunately, the impromptu meeting went well because Christina and Heather have so much in common (aside from their looks), said Tarek. "They get along great," dished the father of two. "They both eat that healthy, hippie food. That weird juice. They do that weird hiking stuff. You know that weird stuff." He also told "GMA" that Christina didn't know he was seeing someone when the news broke about his relationship with Heather. "I was like, 'OK. Well, the cat's out of the bag. So should I tell my ex-wife? Do I not? Do I let TMZ tell her? Who do I let tell her?'" recalled Tarek. "So I guess the world just let everybody know we were together." And was that weird for Christina? "To be honest with you, we still haven't talked about it," he said.
During an interview for the cover of the October 2019 issue of Tatler, which hit the Internet on Aug. 30, Liv Tyler said that she and David Gardner, who got engaged in 2015, are in no rush to wed. "I love being engaged, but I don't really have a desire to get married," she said. "I always felt like marriage should be more of a reward… for surviving your relationship. I feel everyone's got it backwards." The American actress went on to say that living in England, her fiancé's home country, "affects even our relationship dynamics." Explained the "Armageddon" alum, "I remember the first time that David called me his missus. I was like, 'What? Excuse me? I'm not your missus.' You have to earn that."

Thank you for being a source of joy, and for knowing that life is good when love is easy. Oh, and big thanks for the copious amounts of wine," she captioned a black-and-white shot of herself sharing a steamy smooch with her beau.
During an interview with The New York Times that hit the Internet on Sept. 3, Linda Hamilton opened up about her relationship with ex-husband James Cameron, who directed her in "The Terminator" and "Terminator 2: Judgment Day." Said the actress, "That relationship was a mystery to all of us — even Jim and myself — because we are terribly mismatched. … I used to say we fit together like a puzzle: Everywhere he's convex, I'm concave." The duo took their relationship to the next level after they worked together on "T2." Said Linda, who shot into the spotlight after portraying Sarah Connor in the action franchise, "I think what happened there is that he really fell in love with Sarah Connor … and I did too." (Said the filmmaker on the subject, "I fell in love with her initially because I thought she was a little closer to Sarah than she actually is, but that doesn't mean that much once you get to know somebody. … I think we were just in this high-velocity spiral around each other for a long time. We were fascinated by each other.") Linda went on to say that she was "completely devastated for years" after she and James called it quits. "But I'm so glad to be free of that. I would never, ever put that much energy again into something that is not working," she said. The actress also revealed that she's been celibate for at least 15 years. "One loses track, because it just doesn't matter — or at least it doesn't matter to me. I have a very romantic relationship with my world every day and the people who are in it," she told The New York Times, adding that she loves "my alone time like no one you've ever met."
Amanda Stanton let loose on her ex-fiancé, Josh Murray, in her new memoir, "Now Accepting Roses: Finding Myself While Searching for the One … and Other Lessons I Learned from 'The Bachelor,'" which came out on Sept. 3. "I was together with him for six months (seems like six years), let him get close to my children, moved him into my house, made him part of my family — and I never really knew who he was," she wrote, adding that her former love's "anger issues are really bad," according to Us Weekly. She went on to detail some particularly troubling aspects of their relationship: "Josh didn't want a fiancée, he wanted a robot he could program and control. After all his sweet talk about wanting to watch the girls while I got manicures with my friends, the reality was he didn't even like me texting or talking to anyone, let alone seeing them in person," she wrote. "One time I met two girls, friends of mine since first grade, for dinner. Josh was so jealous and furious he bombarded me with texts to say he was packing his things and leaving. My attention had to be on Josh and only Josh at all times. I'd have to call my mom from the gym to avoid an issue." The blonde beauty added that Josh once flew into a rage when he saw a photo of her drinking with some girlfriends. But calling it quits was easier said than done: "Even though he was controlling and difficult, I felt pressured to try to make things work with him because he did get so close to my daughters," wrote Amanda. "That breakup hit me the hardest because I truly thought I found my person, and I had put it out there in front of what felt like the whole world. … It's embarrassing to look back at the degree to which I fought for things to work out." But Josh wasn't the only ex at whom Amanda took aim in her book…
Amanda Stanton also dished on a few of her other former loves in her new book. Here are some of her biggest revelations… She fell in love with ex-husband Nick Buonfiglio "immediately" but "never felt emotionally safe" with him. While they were on a break early in their relationship, he hooked up with one of her best friends. Later, after their second daughter was born, Amanda found her husband's secret back-up phone, on which he had "inappropriate texts from many, many girls," pictures of naked women and "numerous dating app profiles" … on which he claimed to be a single father. Amanda wrote that although she and Ben Higgins "didn't have overwhelming chemistry," she "really wanted it to work with him" and was crushed when he sent her home after meeting her two daughters on Season 20 of "The Bachelor." She also lacked chemistry with Nick Viall, whom she'd met and flirted with before they co-starred on Season 3 of "Bachelor in Paradise." Wrote Amanda, "There were no sparks during my date with Nick, yet viewers were led to believe we were dancing on cloud nine. … He could hardly hold eye contact with me. Dates can be nerve-racking, but it was strange to me considering the great chemistry we'd had when we had hung out before. I'm still not sure what happened." As for Robby Hayes, "Although we were what I'd call casually dating, I never fully believed there would be a future between us," she wrote, adding that she thought he was "the biggest douchebag ever" when they first met. She went on to say that Robby wanted them to make their relationship official at the "Bachelor in Paradise" reunion special … even though they'd called it quits and hadn't seen each other in weeks. "When a fan direct messaged me a photo of Robby kissing another girl at a concert, I was further convinced he wasn't truly interested in any type of relationship or commitment. … I felt his motivation was to look good and get more airtime," she wrote.
For a couple who've been photographed packing on the PDA countless times in recent months, Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello sure enjoy cultivating a sense of mystery about the nature of their relationship. During a Q&A following his Aug. 30 concert at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut, a fan asked the "Stitches" singer, "You've said you've never been in love — has that changed recently?" Replied Shawn in a video tweeted by a fan account, "Honestly, I wanna say I wanna talk to you guys about this stuff but it's not just me in the relationship. There's another person involved and I can't say things that I feel. It's not just me deciding, you know?"
During an interview with TMZ that hit the Internet on Aug. 31, Stephen Baldwin said that even though his daughter, Hailey Bieber, eloped with Justin Bieber at a New York City courthouse nearly a year ago, they're still planning to have a big wedding for family and friends for religious reasons. "Weddings and marriage are supposed to be a holy commitment, one onto another, so I just think that as Christians and as believers, they understand that if you don't have God's spirit working in your marriage, it just makes it more and more difficult to make it work and have peace and find happiness," he said. "So we're excited that they're going to do a very fun wedding. They're going to have a lot of their pastor friends and a lot of their Christian friends around them this time." Continued the actor, "My only job is just walking my little princess down the aisle." He added that Justin and Hailey are "looking at a couple venues right now" in South Carolina and "trying to figure out which one is going to be the most fun for them and memorable." Stephen then gushed of his son-in-law, "He's taken some more time to himself. Many people don't know that he's quite a family man. He loves family and kids and things like that. So I think he's grown with leaps and bounds in the last year as far as taking time to himself and making sure he's spending time with his wife and that they're having fun."
During an interview with Harper's Bazaar that hit the Internet on Sept. 2, Kristen Stewart opened up about her relationship with former "Twilight" franchise co-star Robert Pattinson and how her attitude about dating in the limelight has changed over the years: "When me and Rob were together, we did not have an example to go by," she said. "So much was taken from us that, in trying to control one aspect, we were just like, 'No, we will never talk about it. Never. Because it's ours.'" Added the actress of why she's been less secretive about her relationships in recent years, "I think I just wanted to enjoy my life. And that took precedence over protecting my life, because in protecting it, I was ruining it. … Like what, you can't go outside with who you're with? You can't talk about it in an interview? I was informed by an old school mentality."
During an Aug. 29 press conference for Noah Baumbach's "Marriage Story," Scarlett Johansson opened up about how her divorce from second husband Romain Dauriac (pictured) impacted her work in the upcoming Netflix film, in which she plays an actress ending her marriage to a theater director. (The film is reportedly based on the filmmaker's divorce from Jennifer Jason Leigh.) Scarlett was "going through a divorce" when she first met with Noah to discuss the project, she said during the Venice Film Festival. "I didn't know what we were going to talk about. … I just kind of blew into the room, ordered a glass of white wine and started complaining [about the breakup]," she recalled. "And he was just listening and very attentive. … And then he kind of cut it short and said, 'Funny you should mention it.'" The actress went on to say that it "felt sort of fated in a way" that she should make the movie. "It was an experience to share with him and have him share with me. And it somehow came at just the right time," she concluded.
During an appearance on the Sept. 4 episode of Howard Stern's SiriusXM radio show, Orlando Bloom dished on the various leading ladies in his life (both real and on screen). First, the actor admitted to having crushes on former co-stars Keira Knightley and Kirsten Dunst — but he was "way too shy" to ever do anything about it, he said. Plus, he has a strict policy against dating co-stars. That doesn't mean, however, that he hasn't secretly "fallen in love" with one of them, he teased. Orlando also detailed his fiancée Katy Perry's "great relationship" with Flynn, his son with ex-wife Miranda Kerr. "When you have a child, you realize you're not the most important person in the room. It crushes your ego … [and] reframes everything," he said. "[Katy] is still the most important person in her room [with] her family and everyone else. … I'm sure having a child for me changed all of that, so I was in a different headspace and she had to kind of work on getting her head into a headspace that felt like, OK, partnership and stuff." As for his relationship with Miranda, "I always was like, 'Listen, we're gonna be in each other's lives for the rest of each other's lives. We have a child. Let's [do] whatever it takes,'" Orlando said, adding that "it's not always easy."
In an Aug. 29 teaser for the upcoming 17th season of "The Voice," which debuts on Sept. 23, Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton gushed about their relationship, which took off in late 2015 after they connected on Season 9 of the show. "To be with my best friend Blakey … I feel pretty lucky right now," said the No Doubt frontwoman, who's returning to the competition as a coach for the first time since Season 12 in early 2017. "I always love having Gwen on the show. … She literally makes my day 100 percent better," said her beau.
Jordan Wiseley and Tori Deal got engaged earlier this year while shooting the current season of "The Challenge" — the same show on which they met. But that doesn't mean they plan to broadcast their nuptials on the MTV reality series. "We met on the show and we met because of the show, but [a wedding] definitely would not be on 'The Challenge,'" the groom-to-be told Us Weekly during an interview that hit the Internet on Aug. 30. "We wouldn't mind letting the public in on the wedding and maybe doing a special of some kind. Our biggest thing is we just want to have the wedding that we would like to have. We don't want any TV commitments to mess up the wedding that we'd like, but we would surely love to have someone there to film it and share it with everyone." He also said that they plan to tie the knot on the East Coast, where Tori's family lives, in "not a castle, but a castle … an indoor/outdoor thing" in front of somewhere around 200 guests.
James Kennedy and his girlfriend, Raquel Leviss, told Us Weekly on Aug. 28 that things are "really good" between them right now, but that doesn't mean the "Vanderpump Rules" co-stars are ready to get engaged … in spite of the wave of engagements currently rocking their cast. "We're not rushed. You know, everyone else is a lot older than us on the show. Way, way, way older," said the singer. Chimed in Raquel, "We're just enjoying life, we're enjoying each other's company."
