Wonderwall.com is taking a look back at the celebrities who found love, suffered heartbreak or experienced some other major event in their love lives in mid-June 2019, starting with this rumored split… It might be over for Dakota Johnson and Chris Martin after more than a year and a half of dating. On June 15, Britain's Sun tabloid reported that the Coldplay frontman was telling friends he was single again following a May breakup with the actress. Neither star has publicly commented on the rumor, but a day later on June 16, Britain's Sunday Express claimed that the pair decided to call it quits because they "could not have been further apart," said a source, on the issue of settling down and starting a family (Chris is already a dad of two with ex-wife Gwyneth Paltrow). "Chris made it clear he wants more kids as soon as possible but Dakota's career has really taken off and that's the last thing she wanted to think about right away," added the source. "It got to the point, last month, where a light seemed to flick on in both their heads and they realized they were pulling in completely opposite directions — so they decided to call it a day."

Country music singer Chris Lane came up with a heck of a way to propose to "The Bachelor" Season 20 winner Lauren Bushnell, who split from Ben Higgins in 2017 — and he was rewarded with a happy, tearful "yes." On June 18, Chris — who started dating Lauren in the fall of 2018 — released a music video debuting his new song, "Big, Big Plans," on YouTube. The vid opens with Chris saying he's going to let everyone hear a song he wrote for his love. The lyrics quickly made it clear that he was going to propose, and he did just that at the end of the track after dropping to one knee. "Baby, you're the best thing that's ever happened to me," he told an emotional Lauren. "I have to spend the rest of my life with you. Will you marry me?" People magazine reported that Chris proposed in the backyard of Lauren's family's Oregon home on June 16 with a 3.5 carat emerald-cut diamond ring.

The British model also honored Ashley in her hero award acceptance speech at the event. "I have a special woman to thank and you know who you are," Cara said onstage.

There's plenty of drama on the current season of "The Bachelorette" as suitors compete for the love of star Hannah Brown. But on June 18, some big offscreen drama took over the headlines. Nashville-based musician Haley Stevens told People magazine that she was four months into a relationship with Jed Wyatt when he joined the cast of the ABC show. In fact, Haley told People, "We spent the night together the night before he headed to L.A. He told me [the show] was just an obstacle and we'd be stronger on the other side because of it." According to Haley, Jed told her the show was "a huge opportunity. I'm only doing this for my music.'" (On the show, Jed has admitted to Hannah that he initially saw the series as an opportunity to get his name out there, "but every moment that we've had has taken that away and shown me that now more than anything I want to be with you," he insisted.) Once he was cast, Haley said, she and Jed planned a trip to the Bahamas where both said "I love you" for the first time. Haley said she confronted Jed when she ran into him at a Nashville music venue this month. "I asked him, 'You didn't think I deserved a phone call [when you got back]?' And he said, 'I didn't know what to say.'"
A year after she was first linked to Cooke Maroney — to whom she's now engaged — Jennifer Lawrence has opened up about the art gallery director like never before. The Oscar winner gushed about her fiancé on the June 13 "Naked With Catt Sadler" podcast. "He's the greatest human being I've ever met. He really is, and he gets better," she said. As for how she knew he was the guy for her, she explained, "I don't know, I started with the basics. 'How do I feel? Is he nice? Is he kind?' It's just — this is the one, I know that sounds really stupid but he's just, he's — you know. He's the greatest person I've ever met, so I feel very honored to become a Maroney." As for how wedding planning is going, the couple — who threw an engagement party for family and friends in New York City in May and, according to a June 19 report from People magazine, will marry in the fall — haven't been going crazy. "I've been in a good place," J-Law said. "I haven't been neurotic about it. I'm like, too lazy to be neurotic. I saw a dress I liked and I was like, 'That's the dress.' I saw a venue and I was like, 'Cool, we got the venue.'" There's only been one bridezilla moment so far. "I thought I didn't want to have bachelorette party, and then last minute I decided I did. Then nobody was available because it was last minute. And then I started crying," she shared. "I was like, 'I don't even know why I'm crying. I didn't know that I wanted a bachelorette party. I guess I just feel pathetic.' [Cooke] was like, 'Oh my god, you don't need to feel pathetic.'"
Another "Housewives" marriage is in crisis. "The Real Housewives of Orange County" alum Meghan King Edmonds is devastated after learning that her husband, retired baseball star Jim Edmonds, crossed the line with another woman while Meghan was pregnant with their twins. The cheating scandal came to light on June 13 when AllAboutTheTEA.com published lewd messages and photos that Jim allegedly exchanged with "Jenn aka 'baseball madame,'" a woman he was previously involved with years ago (while married to his second wife) and reportedly reconnected with in March 2018. According to the website, Jim exchanged DMs with the woman and even sent her X-rated videos of himself on the same day Meghan gave birth to their sons in June 2018. On June 13, Jim admitted to Us Weekly that he "had a lapse in judgment" and an "inappropriate conversation" with the unnamed woman but insisted that there was never a physical relationship. The next day, Meghan opened up about her heartbreak…
Meghan King Edmonds took to her blog on June 14 to share how "sad," "abandoned" and "lonely" she felt in the wake of husband Jim Edmonds' cheating scandal. "I called Jimmy and he confessed to me that he had exchanged lewd photos with this woman over the course of several months and a physical relationship never existed," she wrote in a lengthy post. "He paid her off to protect me so I'd never find out." She continued, "Do I believe him? I don't know. Because I don't trust him anymore. Physical or not, he still had an affair and he admits this to me." She also declared, "my wedding ring symbolizes fraud." Jim opened up to TMZ Sports, calling his actions "a weak moment" and vowing that he and Meghan were "just gonna have to work through it." Then on June 18, Meghan sparked headlines when she posted a selfie to her Instagram Story in which she was not wearing her wedding ring. A source told E! News that Meghan has mixed feelings as she figures out what to do next: "She's not wearing her ring right now as she navigates the rough waters of repairing her marriage. [But] she's fully married to Jimmy and loves him deeply despite not wearing her ring right now."

Music star Joe Jonas and "Game of Thrones" actress Sophie Turner, who wed in Las Vegas in May, "want to have a huge party," a source told Us of the French nuptials plan.

When Jennifer Lopez walks down the aisle with fiancé Alex Rodriguez "soon" — in the next year, she said in a June 13 YouTube video promoting her summer "It's My Party" tour — it will be her fourth time saying "I do." But according to the singer-actress, it's only her second real marriage. "I've been married three times and once was nine months and once was 11 months so I don't really count those," she said in the video, referring to her brief unions to, respectively, dancer Cris Judd (pictured) and waiter Ojani Noa. "I was married to Marc [Anthony] for 10 years with [whom I had] the kids. I was very young the first two times I tried to get married. I'm saying tried to!" J.Lo explained that she wed for the wrong reasons. "It seems like in this life, like you're always surrounded by people, you're never lonely. But it's very lonely. And so you always want somebody with you," she said. "And so I felt like if I got married, I felt like I would always have somebody. But that's not how life works. That's not how it goes. It's a bad reason to get married! Not the right one. The wrong one! The right one is when you find somebody who really makes you better." When she marries A-Rod, she wants to do something different. "I'd like a big wedding. I'd like to get married in a church this time. Never been married in a church," she added.
