Country Split: One of country music’s biggest couples now resides in Splitsville. Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert announced they were divorcing this week after four years of marriage. “She wanted to try and make it work, maybe have more of a separation,” her friend tells People Magazine. “But he said, ‘I’m filing.’ ” However, a source close to Shelton claims The Voice co-star had no choice. “It came on very quickly,” the source says. “It was very clear that things weren’t going to work out. So he decided to end it. He still loves her very much.” Though rumours of infidelity have plagued the couple for years, sources says that “he hasn’t cheated ever, ever, ever. This has really shaken him.” We wish them both the best.
Single and Looking: Jake Gyllenhaal is looking for love, ladies. “I love love, man,” he said on Howard Stern’s Sirius XM radio show this week . “Are you kidding me?” When Stern asked the Southpaw star how many times he’s been in love, Gyllenhaal replied, “Three times,” before hedging a bit and adding: “Twice.” The handsome actor has been romantically linked with Kirsten Dunst, Reese Witherspoon and Taylor Swift. Although he’s single, Gyllenhaal is open to marriage. “There are a lot of beautiful women, and there are opportunities. But at the same time, if you find the right person … I believe in monogamy. I believe in when you meet somebody who’s right, it will be right, and you’ll stay there.”
Setting A Date: Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello have finally set a wedding date. The genetically-gifted couple are apparently set to wed this Thanksgiving. Sources close to the pair couple of one year reveal they will wed Nov. 22 at Florida’s Breakers Palm Beach resort. “They want all their family and friends there celebrating,” says a source. “It’ll be the most fun wedding ever!” The pair started dating in June 2014 and Manganiello proposed in December after just six months. “Sofia and Joe are really happy,” the insider tells US Magazine. “They’re such a natural couple that they already feel married.”
Bennifer Comeback?: After Ben Affleck announced his divorce from Jennifer Garner, gossip swirled that the original incarnation of Bennifer — that is, the one with Affleck and Jennifer Lopez — would reunite. It’s not surprising, then, that one fan called in to Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live Wednesday to ask Lopez’s BFF Leah Remini about that very possibility.”I really don’t know,” Remini said. “Even if I did, I probably wouldn’t [say], because it would be weird for me to comment on people’s lives. But no, not anything that I know of is…The guy is married and she’s in a relationship.” Although Remini wouldn’t confirm, it appears that Lopez is back together with her other ex, Casper Smart. Affleck and Lopez called off their engagement in 2004.
Playing It Coy: Exes Nick Jonas and Selena Gomez were recently spotted having dinner together, but, according to Jonas, it wasn’t romantic. “We kind of ran into each other a couple of weeks ago, like walking in Venice,” Jonas said in a recent radio interview about Gomez whom he dated when they were both Disney TV stars. “We were both with separate groups of friends and we ran into each other.” However, the run-in spurred the singer to arrange a casual dinner that included his ex, plus a few friends. “I put together a dinner with a bunch of really great people, like the Haim girls, who I love. They’re awesome. They’re the best,” he said. “It was a big group of people and we all had a great time. We connect in that sense. It was nice to connect and just caught up. I’ll just leave it there!” Sounds like there’s more to the story. We guess we’ll have to stay tuned and see if there’s anything to be “jealous” about.
