Heidi Klum took to Instagram on Christmas Eve to announce that she and her boyfriend of less than a year, Tom Kaulitz, are engaged. "I SAID YES," she captioned a smiley selfie. Ironically, the supermodel addressed their relationship on the Jan. 2 episode of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," which was taped before Christmas. After Ellen asked if marriage might be in the cards, Heidi said, "I've been married twice. … I still believe in love and marriage. I do. Even though I failed twice at it. I guess I'm not very good at it. … I found a great person, so let's see what happens." Indeed! Heidi also revealed that she reached out to Drake to apologize for sharing a story about how she ghosted him when he texted to ask her out in early 2018. "I said I'm sorry because I know it made a huge wave," she said. So how did Drake reply? With a single annoyed-looking emoji, she said.

HGTV star Christina El Moussa and "Wheeler Dealers" host Ant Anstead tied the knot at their home in Newport Beach, California, on Dec. 22. The winter wonderland-themed nuptials were part of an elaborate ruse pulled off by the bride and groom: They told their 70 wedding guests that they'd all be attending a local Christmas boat parade. Instead, there was a wedding. By Jan. 2, the "Flip or Flop" star had changed her name (but not her handle) to Christina Anstead on Instagram.

Kristen Stewart was spotted holding hands with wardrobe stylist Sara Dinkin in Los Angeles on Dec. 20. The duo were seen together again on Christmas Eve, signaling that whatever's going on between them is getting serious. The multiple outings also signaled that K-Stew's relationship of almost two years with Stella Maxwell had come to an end. Us Weekly reported on Dec. 21 that the actress and the Victoria's Secret model split "around a month ago." Said a source, "They stopped seeing eye to eye and were living very different lives." The insider added that time spent apart due to their careers "didn't help" things and that the pair "had issues" earlier this year, before Kristen went to Germany to shoot the upcoming "Charlie's Angels" reboot. "Stella and Kristen still share a ton of friends and are friendly with each other," the source concluded.
Forest Whitaker filed to divorce his wife of 22 years, Keisha Nash Whitaker, in Los Angeles on Dec. 27.

On Dec. 31, the webloid reported that Keisha filed a response to the actor's divorce petition asking for spousal support. (Their three daughters are all adults, so there will be no dispute over child support or custody.) In spite of the contradictory requests regarding spousal support, TMZ reports that the breakup is "super amicable" and that "both sides want to work out a formal property settlement agreement that will satisfy them." The pair reportedly do not have a prenup.
Apparently, the late-November report that Andrew Garfield and Rita Ora are an item isn't so crazy after all. The duo were photographed walking arm-in-arm in London on Dec. 23. (See the photo here.)

On Dec. 21, less than three weeks after Cardi B announced that she and Offset had called it quits, the "Bodak Yellow" rapper reunited with her estranged husband in Puerto Rico, where they shared an intimate-looking Jet Ski ride. According to TMZ, the Migos rapper hung out backstage while Cardi performed at the Convention Center in San Juan later that day. Following fan backlash over the reunion, Cardi took to Instagram Live to say that she only met up with her ex because she needed, ahem, some physical intimacy. She rang in the New Year with another Instagram Live in which she said that she's excited to see what happens with her love life in 2019. She went on to sing Offset's praises, recognizing him for all his help in shaping her career over the years, and said that she "would love to work things out" with him because he's "my best friend and my biggest supporter."
During an interview with Rolling Stone that hit the Internet on Dec. 20, Travis Scott said that he and Kylie Jenner will "get married soon." Said the rapper, "I just gotta sturdy up — I gotta propose in a fire way." He also dished on how they fell in love: "We was just two kids, [messing] around. Maybe, like, the first week, you don't know if it's real or a fling. Then the second week you're like, 'Whoa, I'm still talking to her, she's responding, I'm responding. We ain't run out of a thing to say.' … And it got to a point where I was like, 'I need her with me to operate. She's that one.'"
Meghan Trainor and Daryl Sabara tied the knot in the backyard of their home in Los Angeles on Dec. 22 — her 25th birthday.

She also deleted every other photo she'd ever posted — as did Birdman, who shared a simple text post on his Instagram Story reading, "It's over…"

Cassie took to Instagram on Dec. 29 to show that she's moved on from Diddy with personal trainer and bull rider Alex Fine. The singer shared a picture of two shots from a photo booth: one of the pair posing with her mother and the other of them kissing. It's one of only three posts currently on her Instagram page, which she recently scrubbed. Alex returned the favor on Jan. 1 by posting a sun-kissed selfie with Cassie on his own Instagram page. "'19," he captioned the pic, tagging the location as somewhere in the Pacific Ocean. Meanwhile, Diddy took to his Instagram Story on Dec. 28 to share a photo of his ex-girlfriend of more than a decade soaking in a bubble bath. "I [heart emoji] @cassie," he wrote across the pic.

Terrence Howard and Mira Pak tied the knot in October 2013, separated in August 2014 and divorced in July 2015, but they never really quit each other. For example, in late September, the "Empire" star referred to Mira as his wife. Now they're one step closer to making their marriage official again: On Christmas, Terrence took to Instagram to reveal that he proposed to Mira for the second time, posting a slideshow of photos and videos showing off his love's new engagement bling and singing her praises. "We have an idea of how long we think life is, but we do know how short it can be," he said. "It took me 45 years to find you, honey. It took me 45 years to find you. But now that I have you in my 50th year, I will spend the rest of eternity at your side. And I pray that everybody finds that one that will complete them for all eternity because it means everything. I love you."

"Ronnie and Jen got into a fight on New Year's Eve. They broke up before New Year's Eve, got back together right before then and got in a big fight on Monday night," said a source. "They're currently broken up. But it's the same story every time: They are together, they fight, they break up and then get back together." Added the insider of the famously explosive pair, "They fight — a lot. They have a very volatile relationship. It's either great or the total opposite." The "Jersey Store" star also wiped all traces of his off-and-on love from his Instagram page, unfollowed her and "liked" a negative comment about her that one of his followers left on a photo that he posted of their daughter, Ariana. ("She is amazing. Hope she doesnt grow up to act like her mother," the fan wrote.)

Jonathan Van Ness took to Instagram on Dec. 30 to announce that he and Wilco Froneman, with whom he first stepped out publicly in September, called it quits. After quoting Ariana Grande's breakup anthem "thank u, next," he used the hashtag "cheatersneverprosper" — basically implying that Wilco had been unfaithful — to caption a shirtless photo of himself. Later, the "Queer Eye" star updated the caption by deleting the hashtag and adding a few words in defense of his ex: "Please don't go in on Wilco, he doesn't need the anger & I don't want to see him suffer so just know I'm all good & sometimes people break up — Love you all so much," he wrote. Jonathan also addressed the breakup (and the subsequent hashtag drama) on his Instagram Story: "I should've sat with myself a bit longer before I posted my most recent post," he wrote. "Wilco is a good person & sometimes things don't work out. Please don't attack him on his page. Just let us move on, heal and enjoy your gorgeous New Year's celebration. Your girl Jonathan is just fine. Biggest hug." Wilco addressed the breakup on Instagram as well: "Not only did Jonathan van Ness give me the best moments of 2018, but undoubtedly the best moments of my life. I will always love him and cherish every moment we shared. I encourage everyone to continue to send him love, no one deserves anything less," he captioned a Dec. 30 photo of himself ice skating with the Netflix star. Then on Jan. 1, he addressed the cheating rumors: "These are my words, not a lyric from a song. As I walk into 2019 with eyes wide open, I know I can move forward with honesty and clarity… Things end for a reason and I am moving forward with my head held high knowing the truth in spite of the bullying and accusations that come as a result of a rash post, the damage of which can't be undone. I am hurt, but healing and want to state for the record that I was never unfaithful to Jonathan. Our breakup happened as a result of circumstances that I don't fully understand, nor can explain but I enter 2019 with my feet planted firmly on the ground with a positive attitude and intention to make this year the best ever… much love and gratitude to all that reached out with compassion and love," he captioned a photo of himself and his dog. The breakup apparently happened sometime after Dec. 22, when Wilco wrote that it was "time to go love my man now" in the caption of a slideshow of photos from a vacation with friends in Utah.
Shannon Beador and Scot Matteson, who were first linked in July, have called it quits, Radar Online reported on Dec. 26. "Their romance started to cool off after this fall," said a source. "Shannon was not ready to be tied down to Scot and she ended the relationship on amicable terms several weeks ago." According to the insider, the contentious divorce between the star of "The Real Housewives of Orange County" and her former husband, David Beador, is partially to blame for her recent breakup: "Honestly, her divorce with David is just too much for anyone to handle," said the source. "She does not want to be with anyone serious right now and knows that she can't really move forward or get too involved with anyone until her divorce is finalized."
Petra Nemcova and investment banker Alejandro Grimaldi, who got engaged during the summer of 2017, have called it quits, Page Six reported on Dec. 30.

Michael Fishman's wife of nearly two decades, Jennifer Briner, filed documents for legal separation on Dec. 27. According to TMZ, the pair (pictured in 2003) want joint physical and legal custody of their teenage daughter, and they plan to work on dividing their assets in private. The "Roseanne" star told TMZ that the breakup is amicable, that he and his ex went to court to file the divorce paperwork together (along with their two kids) and that they've actually been in the process of legally separating since June 2017. Things reportedly hit a speedbump when ABC abruptly canceled "Roseanne" in the wake of a Twitter scandal involving star Roseanne Barr, and Michael suddenly found himself out of work — until ABC rebranded "Roseanne" as "The Conners" in late 2018. The former child star explained to TMZ that he and Jennifer are legally separating instead of divorcing because he wants to keep her on his health insurance for as long as possible: "Among the reasons for not getting a regular divorce is the shared desire to keep Jenny covered by my health insurance, and allow to slowly unfold our 20 years together in a way mutually beneficial for our family, particularly on behalf of our children," he said. According to TMZ, Michael wouldn't say what led to the breakup or whether or not he and his estranged missus will ever officially divorce.
Michael Ray proposed to fellow singer Carly Pearce in Mexico on Dec. 19, he announced on Instagram three days later. "Dec 19,2018 My life forever changed for the better.

Carly, who was first linked to Michael in July, shared the same photos with a lengthy caption of her own: "Earlier this week, the man of my dreams got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife. All in one simple 'yes', I said 'yes' to love, 'yes' to peace, 'yes' to faithfulness, 'yes' to respect, 'yes' to kindness, 'yes' to trust, 'yes' to patience and 'yes' to never settling.

During an interview with Page Six that hit the Internet on Dec. 19, Danielle Staub's estranged husband, Marty Caffrey, blamed the dissolution of their marriage on "The Real Housewives of New Jersey." Marty claims that "things were going extremely well between us" before Danielle returned to the Bravo show after a five-season hiatus. "As we approached the wedding, and the filming of Season 9 began, she changed. Instead of our relationship, it became more about the cameras. She began to think she was more important than everybody else," he said. "Filming the wedding appears to be the main thing that ruined us. It became more about the cameras, the show, the party, the attention she was getting and very little about the ceremony and the marriage and what we were really there for. Danielle wants to reconcile with me, but I'm not sure there is a path forward. We'll see." However, on Dec. 21, Us Weekly reported that Danielle filed documents alleging that her estranged husband physically and verbally abused her, threatened her with revenge porn, withheld financial information from her, abandoned her and humiliated her throughout their marriage. He denied the allegations, telling Us Weekly that his ex is simply "in a panic" because he "refused to drop the divorce" and because of "the negative blowback she's been receiving." Said Marty, "Only Danielle Staub's mind is capable of fabricating this type of stuff. She wanted to reconcile three days ago and told me she loved me. If I were guilty of any of these things, why would you want to reconcile? Danielle will go to any depth to slander people and be the victim. … None of this is accurate or even close to the truth. This is simply Danielle Staub trying to take people out like she has in her past, but it's not going to work this time."
