On Oct. 9, a source told People magazine that Pete Davidson and Ariana Grande — who got engaged in June after about a month of dating — are definitely going to have a prenup in place when they marry (unlike another young couple who got engaged lightning-fast this summer: Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin). In fact, the source told People, Pete and Ariana are either close to finalizing or have already finalized the legal document. The news comes days after Pete talked about his relationship with the wildly successful pop star during a "Weekend Update" bit on "Saturday Night Live" and said he was absolutely on board with signing a prenup. "Obviously I wanted one, you know, so God forbid we split up and then she takes half my sneakers," he joked. "No, look, I'm totally comfortable being with a successful woman; I think it's dope. I live at her place. She pays, like, 60 grand for rent, and all I have to do is, like, stock the fridge."

News in a story published on Oct. 9 that the site later took down. Khloe — who halted plans to move from Los Angeles to Ohio with Tristan last week for the NBA preseason, People magazine reported a few days earlier — is also "still very much insecure" when they're apart, the E! source added. "Khloe has had many ups and downs lately with Tristan," the source explained, making it clear that the Good American designer and the basketball player "are not in the best place currently." Khloe wants to make the relationship work for True's sake "but it has been very difficult recently. She has huge trust issues that she has not overcome, and it's definitely caused a rift." E! reported that she's also stressed about her family's lingering feelings about the whole debacle. "In addition to her own insecurities about Tristan's infidelity, Khloe is continuing to struggle with her family's thoughts of Tristan as most of them haven't forgiven him for cheating, even though they are trying to support Khloe's decision to be with him," the source said. "Everyone in the family ultimately wants what's best for True, but they're wary that Tristan will cheat again, and they hate seeing how this is affecting Khloe."

Two outlets poured water on ongoing rumors that Brad Pitt has moved on romantically two years after his split from Angelina Jolie. MIT professor Neri Oxman, to whom Brad was linked earlier this year, told The New York Times in an Oct. 6 profile that she and the movie star are not dating (she's actually seeing hedge funder William A. Ackman) — but said she'd love to work with the architecture buff on a future project. She also praised his film work, calling Brad "the last of the Mohicans in post-Netflix Hollywood."

Is Ben Affleck's headline-making romance with Playboy model Shauna Sexton over? Depends who you ask. Less than two months after they were spotted on a Malibu dinner date, 46-year-old Ben has ended his burgeoning romance with the 22-year-old part-time vet tech, multiple outlets reported on Oct. 9. A friend of the actor told People magazine, "There was nothing to split from as it has been casual." It certainly seemed to be getting serious, as Shauna visited Ben during his 40-day stay in rehab and often met up with him at his home when he left the facility to work out in his private home gym. The breakup report comes after Ben and Shauna went on a weekend trip to Montana together — where she posted images of him on social media. "He enjoyed being with her but is working on himself, and being together with her at this time is not something that works," Ben's friend explained to People. "He will date in the future, but for now his focus is on his sobriety, family and his next project." Shauna, however, denied a split, telling DailyMailTV, "Don't believe everything you read on the internet." According to her anonymous insiders "just make s— up, just like this."
A few days before the Ben Affleck/Shauna Sexton breakup reports surfaced on Oct. 5 — one day after TMZ reported that Jennifer Garner had filed legal papers asking a Los Angeles court to transfer her divorce case to a private judge so she and Ben could speed things up — People magazine reported that the exes had already quietly met and signed off on the last details of their drawn-out split during a lengthy meeting at Jen's home on the evening of Oct. 4 where they, along with a private judge, completed their paperwork. The documents can now be submitted to the court so that their divorce can be finalized by the end of 2018. A few days later, TMZ reported that the former couple had drafted a legal custody arrangement that's intentionally vague by design — it doesn't outline any specific division of time with the kids. Jen, however, will reportedly get the majority of time with Violet, 12, Seraphina, 9, and Samuel, 6, and when Ben — who just completed 40 days in rehab — has the kids, he'll have a monitor to ensure he's sober and that the children are safe.
Meanwhile, a source told Us Weekly's newest issue , which came out on Oct. 10, that Jennifer Garner has "started dating someone new." Jen, says the source, is finally "ready to start the next phase of her life."

Though wife Teresa Giudice's attorney recently insisted that the couple are not divorcing, the ruling could spell disaster for their marriage. A source told TMZ that Teresa has "zero interest" in uprooting her life and moving to Italy with their four school-aged daughters. The source also said Teresa and the girls haven't been visiting Joe in prison lately.

In the November issue of Women's Health, which hit the internet on Oct. 9, Kaley Cuoco opened up about how she and second husband Karl Cook — who married in June — fell for one another. "We bonded a lot of having the same kind of outlooks on life, insecurities, dating. He comes from a very well-to-do family, so there's all these [preconceived ideas] of being spoiled, and blah, blah, blah. And he's just the opposite," she explained. Karl, a professional equestrian whose father is a billionaire businessman and co-founder of Intuit, also appreciated her love of horses and never "kissed my a–" — he didn't care that she's the multimillionaire star of "The Big Bang Theory." "I like knowing that I'm [financially] set, because I've taken it upon myself to do that," she added. "I like to tell my friends, 'Always make sure you have your life going, and that you're No. 1, so that anyone who comes into it — husband, or boyfriend, or girlfriend, however you roll — that's just an added bonus to whatever you're creating.' I don't need Karl for anything. If Karl left me tomorrow, I'd be fine. And he knows that, and he would be fine too."
