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 June 2018, starting with Justin Theroux and Jennifer Aniston. Justin opened up about his late-2017 split from Jen for the first time during an interview with The New York Times that hit the Internet on Sept. 21, calling it "kind of the most gentle separation, in that there was no animosity." As for what caused their marriage to end, "These are actually in reality small events that take place … but everything can feel like 10 on the Richter scale if you make the headline big enough and salacious enough," he said before calling the breakup "amicable" and "boring" and explaining that neither he nor Jen are "looking to throw hatchets at each other." He also said that their mutual respect for one another made the split "as painless as it could be," though he also called the end of their relationship "heartbreaking" because the "friendship" they once shared isn't "the same, as far as just the day to day." Said the "Maniac" star, "But the friendship is shifting and changing, you know, so that part is something that we're both very proud of." He then refused to address the current state of his love life.

Shia LaBeouf is dating Robert Pattinson's former fiancée, FKA Twigs. "We're very happy, we're having a nice time," the singer-actress told MailOnline through an intercom at her London home, from which she and the troubled actor were seen coming and going in exclusive photos published by the website on Sept. 25. The new couple reportedly connected earlier this year on the Los Angeles set of "Honey Boy" (pictured), which the "Transformers" alum wrote and in which he'll portray a character based on his real father. The new romance signaled that Shia's longtime relationship with "Nymphomaniac" co-star Mia Goth, to whom he was first linked in late 2012, had come to an end…

According to MailOnline, Mia Goth ended her relationship with Shia LaBeouf "several months ago." Said a friend of the "Everest" actress, who was photographed packing on the PDA with the actor in May, "Everybody in their circle knows that Mia and Shia are separating. … She's spending her time between London and New York while he's currently in London. … Mia had been having some problems with Shia. It was a very crazy relationship and he is very fiery. … She has told her friends that she can't take any more. When he was preparing for a part, Mia would keep away from him and move out because his rehearsals were so intense." In October 2016, the duo tied the knot (with an Elvis impersonator officiating) at a chapel in Las Vegas. Though there were reports at the time that the wedding was actually just a commitment ceremony and that the pair's union wasn't legally binding, "Entertainment Tonight" reported on Sept. 25 that a rep for the actor confirmed that "the two have filed for divorce." The rep added that the split is "amicable" and that "all details pertaining to the divorce proceedings will remain private."
"The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" star Rachel Brosnahan and "The Magicians" actor Jason Ralph secretly tied the knot earlier this year, People magazine reported on Sept. 25 after the pair were seen wearing wedding bands during the 2018 Emmys on Sept. 17. (According to a Wonderwall.com source, the top-secret nuptials actually went down in late 2017.)

The duo have reportedly been seen dining together in Los Angeles several times in recent weeks and have even started attending industry events as a couple. (They were photographed visiting a furniture store in West Hollywood on Sept. 23.) It's unclear when exactly the Oscar winner started spending time with the "Weeds" alum. In June, he and longtime girlfriend Lucila Solá, 42, double dated with her daughter, Camila Morrone, and Al's "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" co-star Leonardo DiCaprio.

First and foremost, we are forever partners and parents to two beautiful children, and are fully committed to raising them in an environment filled with love and positivity," the CEO of Insomniac Events captioned a photo of himself and the former Playboy model along with their two kids, daughter Rainbow and son Forest. "Holly is a talented woman and a beautiful soul. We remain the best of friends while co-parenting and continuing to support one another in our respective passions in life. Though it was not a decision we made hastily or take lightly, Holly and I welcome this next chapter in our relationship, and have every confidence that the future will bring only the best for us and our kids. We will always be family. Thank you all for your continued love and support," he continued. The duo tied the knot at Disneyland in 2013.

Just days before Anthony committed suicide in June, photos emerged of Asia holding hands with journalist Hugo Clement during a stroll in Rome. Some of the late TV star's fans have blamed his death on his girlfriend of two years, saying Anthony took his own life because she was unfaithful. "He was a man who traveled 265 days a year," said Asia. "When we saw each other, we took really great pleasure in each other's company. But we are not children. We are grown ups. … Anthony was 62. I was 42. We had lives. We had wives and husbands. We had children. I cannot think of Anthony as somebody who would do an extreme gesture like [killing himself] for something like [being cheated on]." Continued the mother of two, "Just two months before [he died], it was our anniversary, and he wrote to me, 'Two years — a miracle, a gift, the best thing that has ever happened.' And for me, it's the same — and nothing, and nobody, will ever take that away from me or him." Added Asia, "One thing I know, that he has given me the two happiest years of my life and I've given [that to] him."

"She's in a really great place," added the insider. Meanwhile, a source close to the "Magic Mike" star told People that he's also been going out on dates and having fun, though he's yet to get involved in anything "serious." As for the status of their divorce, which is said to be amicable, the Jenna source said that the former couple is selling their Beverly Hills home and dividing up their other assets while focusing on co-parenting their 5-year-old daughter, Everly. "Everything has been really good between them," said the Channing insider. "Nothing has really changed from when they were together," echoed the Jenna source.

"There's been a lot of stuff that's been going on in the real world that you haven't known — that I went to your parents' wedding anniversary, I've spent a lot of time with them. I play golf with your dad every single weekend. There's a lot of stuff that I want to tell you," he told her as cameras rolled. "Sitting at home and watching you tell millions around the world how much you loved me and wanted to be with me forever made me realize that 'girlfriend' wasn't enough, honestly." The day trader then got down on one knee and the flight attendant accepted. On the aftershow, the couple were tight-lipped about a possible pregnancy: On the show's livefeed in August, Bayleigh was heard telling fellow contestant Haleigh Broucher that she thought she might be expecting, though she said she hadn't yet taken a pregnancy test.

Kevin — who last fall publicly apologized to his then-pregnant wife for his "bad error in judgement" — tells People that these days, as a husband, "I am amazing because I get it now." The "Night School" star continued, "The friendship that I have with my wife is insane. Yes, that's my wife, we're lovers, it's a relationship, it's marriage…but the friendship we have is like no other." He admitted their their marriage was really "put to the test" during the infidelity scandal. "It's the most difficult test ever. And, you know, sometimes those tests come from stupidity. But it's how you handle it, and how you decide to move forward from it." Eniko forgave him, and he's grateful. "I applaud my wife for just displaying a high level of strength that I can't even explain," he said. "I applaud her for being my backbone, my support system, and more importantly, taking my life to the next level."

Said the former reality star, "This is a bone of contention in our house … because he's got a problem. He's just like a rabbit. … I am like, birthdays, Christmas. … At this point in my life, it's special occasions. It's Thanksgiving." When co-host Sara Gilbert chimed in to say that Sharon once told her she'd "rather have the flu" than sleep with her husband, Sharon replied, "We're in our 37th year. … No wonder he fiddles other people." She then backtracked, saying, "No, he doesn't, he doesn't. He's a good boy." The Osbourne family matriarch has been honest about the rock star's infidelity in the past.

"I don't know why everyone keeps saying that [I'm engaged]. Everyone is asking me," she told People on Sept. 18. "When you do what I do, you wear a lot of fashion. A lot of jewelry.

He went on to say that although the song is "very sweet," he isn't sure the lyrics totally apply to him. "I'm like, 'I never owned a Mustang. I don't have a tattoo. Are you sure that's about me?'" he said. (In the song, Katy sings, "We makeout in your Mustang to Radiohead / And on my 18th birthday, we got matching tattoos.") Continued Josh, "I'm very flattered by it. But I was very surprised by it too."
