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 2021, starting with this on-and-off couple… In early June, E! News reported that, according to a source, Khloe Kardashian was “standing by” her back-on beau, Tristan Thompson, in the wake of late April and early May allegations that he cheated with an Instagram model earlier this year. The insider noted that the reality star believed the professional basketball player was “faithful” to her — even though that hasn’t always been the case — and was still considering having another child with him. Khloe even opened up about learning to trust Tristan again on the second part of the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” finale reunion special, which was filmed in April and aired on E! on June 20: “[I know] how hard he fought to get back with me currently. … I don’t understand why someone would go through all that if they weren’t serious,” she said. The very next day, however, DailyMail.com and “Entertainment Tonight” reported that the athlete was seen “acting very single,” “grabbing this one girl’s butt” and joining three mystery women in “one of the party rooms where everyone goes to hook up” — and later remerging looking “disheveled” — during a June 18 birthday party in Los Angeles… while he was reportedly in L.A. to spend Father’s Day with Khloe and True. As the buzz he cheated again started growing online, multiple media outlets reported that Khloe and Tristan actually amicably called it quits weeks ago — around the time his last cheating scandal made headlines. But on June 20 — the day before the party and breakup claims hit the Internet — People magazine reported that, according to a source, Khloe and Tristan were “good” and “planning some summer vacations together.” Regardless of when they actually split, various media outlets reported that Khloe was feeling “frustrated and disappointed” and “betrayed” by her off-and-on love’s bad behavior. “She really trusted Tristan and felt he was making a genuine effort. She hates that she was wrong about him again. … She doesn’t ever want to be in this position again. She is done falling for Tristan’s empty promises,” said a People source. Echoed an E! News source, “They had been working through the cheating rumors for the last couple of weeks, but Khloe told Tristan he lost all of her trust and the relationship could not be repaired. … She’s done and says she will not go back.”

On June 15, Deux Moi reported that, according to an anonymous source, Brad Pitt has been dating Lykke Li “for quite some time.” A second source, however, insisted that according to the Swedish singer-songwriter’s friends, the romance rumor “couldn’t be further from truth.” And a third source claimed the Oscar winner is “currently single.” It was the second time in as many months that an out-of-left-field rumor tied the A-list actor to a much younger singer.

One June 24, TMZ broke the news that Renee Zellweger is dating former “Wheeler Dealers” host Ant Anstead. They reportedly connected earlier in the month while shooting an episode of the upcoming Discovery+ series “Celebrity IOU Joyride,” on which he stars. It’s unclear when the Oscar-winning actress and her last boyfriend, Doyle Bramhall II, called it quits; Ant and second wife Christina Haack — who was previously known as Christina El Moussa and then as Christina Anstead — finalized their divorce in mid-June. The “Flip or Flop” star filed for divorce in late 2020 after less than two years of marriage. She and Ant will share joint legal and physical custody of their nearly 2-year-old son, Hudson. According to TMZ, they’ve privately settled their division of assets, and neither will pay spousal or child support to the other.
Following nearly two years of questions about the nature of their relationship, Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott apparently signified they’re officially back together when they posed as a couple with their daughter, Stormi Webster, on the red carpet at the Parsons Benefit in New York City on June 15. (It’s the first time they’ve walked a red carpet together since the August 2019 premiere of his Netflix documentary — they split just two months later.) Later in the evening, the off-and-on couple “were holding hands and seemed fully back on,” according to a People magazine source. The rapper even referred to the makeup mogul as his “wifey” in his award acceptance speech. An E! News source later said that the duo “still have separate houses and are not living together” but are “romantic again and seem very happy with the direction they are headed.” Echoed a second E! source, “[They] have been spending a lot of time together in the last few months and have grown really close. They picked up right where they left off. Neither of them has been interested in anyone else over the last year. … Travis is enamored by Kylie and would do anything for her and Stormi. He really wanted her back and has been trying for weeks now. … They have a great thing going right now and are really happy. They have truly always loved each other but needed a break during a busy time in their lives to figure it all out.”
Kanye West and Irina Shayk were photographed spending his 44th birthday (June 8) together in Provence, France, confirming rumors from late May that they’re an item. (See photos here.) Multiple media outlets then reported that the pair started dating after the rapper pursued the model, though there were conflicting reports about when exactly they started seeing each other and how serious they’ve become since then. According to one Us Weekly source, the rapper’s estranged wife, Kim Kardashian, is aware of the burgeoning romance and “doesn’t mind” because she appreciates Irina’s apparent discretion: The reality star “wouldn’t like” if her ex moved on with someone “who’s going to talk to the press,” said the insider, but Kim “saw how quiet and respectful Irina was” after she and her former long-term partner, Bradley Cooper, called it quits in 2019. A second Us Weekly source said that Kim is “genuinely happy” for Kanye, “wants him to move on” and “thinks Irina is a great fit for him.” Meanwhile, on the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” series finale, which aired on June 10, Kim shed some light on why she ultimately walked away from her marriage: She grew “lonely,” she said, when Kanye started spending more time in Wyoming and realized she wants a partner with whom she can share “smaller experiences that will mean a lot” and “the little things” in life like watching a TV show or working out together.
DailyMail.com reported on June 11 that 46-year-old “American Idol” host Ryan Seacrest is dating 23-year-old Instagram model Aubrey Paige.

Aubrey has also reportedly shared photos of herself posing in Ryan’s home on her now-private Instagram account.
On June 1, People magazine broke the news that Matthew Perry and Molly Hurwitz recently called it quits… again. “Sometimes things just don’t work out and this is one of them.

In other “Friends” romance news… On June 2, Page Six published a recent photo of David Schwimmer walking closely with a mystery woman who could be a new girlfriend. In the cozy-looking snap, the beauty appears to be either holding onto his arm or touching his back as she rocks platform boots and a midriff-baring top. Of course, it’s entirely possible they’re just friends…
On June 18, Kacey Musgraves was snapped holding hands with her new boyfriend, writer Cole Schafer, in New York City.

Jana Kramer was snapped holding hands with Bachelor Nation’s Graham Bunn — who competed for DeAnna Pappas’ heart on season 4 of “The Bachelorette” in 2008 and then appeared on the second season of “Bachelor Pad” and on the first season of “Bachelor in Paradise” — after dinner in West Hollywood on June 11. Earlier that day, the “One Tree Hill” alum told E!’s “Daily Pop” that she and the former reality star, with whom she’s “been friends for like, seven years,” are “in an entanglement.” Said the singer-actress, who just split from husband Mike Caussin in April, “We are dancing the line of friends … and I am happy.” A day earlier, she told “Daily Pop” that she was “still single” but “entertaining things.” On the June 20 episode of her “Whine Down” podcast, however, Jana backtracked on her previous comments about her relationship with Graham, explaining that they’re just friends and that “he reached out” to her following her April split from Mike. “He’s sweet, but right now he knows and I know that I need to be alone,” she said, adding that some days, she still misses her ex.
On June 15, Page Six broke the news that Ana de Armas has been dating Tinder exec Paul Boukadakis for the past few months.

The “Knives Out” star and her last boyfriend, Ben Affleck, amicably called it quits earlier this year.
Padma Lakshmi was snapped smooching writer and poet Terrance Hayes in New York City on June 14. (See a photo here.) According to a Page Six source, “it’s early days” for the duo, who are “just getting to know each other.” The PDA was the first indication that Padma and her off-and-on love of more than a decade, Adam Dell, had called it quits again. A source later confirmed the breakup to Page Six, noting that the “Top Chef” host split from the venture capitalist “shortly after the New Year,” that the breakup “was very amicable” and that the former couple, who share a daughter, “are intent on staying the best of friends.”

On June 12, Gwen Stefani sparked speculation that she and Blake Shelton had secretly tied the knot when she stepped out in Santa Monica, California, wearing what appeared to be a diamond-encrusted wedding band alongside her massive engagement ring. (See photos here.) Further fueling the wedding buzz? Just a few days earlier, the No Doubt frontwoman celebrated her impending nuptials with an intimate bridal shower. “She’s getting marriiieeeeed,” she captioned one photo of herself from the bash. On June 16, however, People magazine reported that the pair have yet to wed. “They are both ecstatic that [the wedding] can finally happen. They are getting married this summer,” said a source.
In other possible-secret-wedding news… Kat Denning sparked rumors she’d quietly married Andrew W.K. when she took to Instagram on June 13 to share a photo of herself looking cozy with the rocker as he sported what appeared to be a wedding band. The “WandaVision” actress also appeared to be wearing a diamond wedding band alongside her engagement ring in a photo she shared on Instagram on May 30. If they did tie the knot… just a month after announcing they’re engaged… it would be a perfectly on-brand move for the fast-moving couple.
On June 1, People magazine reported that, according to a source, Trevor Noah and Minka Kelly were working on their relationship after multiple media outlets reported in mid-May that they’d called it quits after about a year of coupledom.

News confirmed that the “Riverdale” co-stars are officially dating again after partying ways in the fall of 2019. “The break was nice for them and they reconnected on [the] set of ‘Riverdale,'” said a source. “Being around all of their mutual friends and hanging out together often made them realize they still have a strong connection and chemistry. They care a lot about each other and have a bond from filming together for so many hours each day. … It’s going well and they aren’t putting too much stress on the relationship.”
In still more reconciliation news… On June 7, Carrie Ann Inaba indicated on Instagram that she and Fabien Viteri were giving it another go after announcing their breakup in mid-May. It’s since become clear the duo are, in fact, an item once again.
During a June 19 interview with E! News, Braunwyn Windham-Burke revealed that she’s dating fellow “The Real Housewives of Orange County” alum Fernanda Rocha. (She also insisted that she and the personal trainer only took their friendship to the next level after Fernanda split from wife Tessa Rocha, who reportedly filed for divorce in January 2021.) The mother of seven, who came out as a lesbian in late 2020, added that she still has no plans to divorce her husband of more than two decades, Sean Burke, though she noted that she “would love for Sean to find someone” and have what she has with Fernanda “with someone else.” Said Braunwyn of her husband, “We’re not fighting. We’re getting along. We have been together 26 years so we’re not in any rush to get divorced. Eventually, maybe one of us will want to get remarried and of course that would happen.”
On June 8, TMZ broke the news that Lindsey Buckingham’s wife of more than two decades, photographer Kristen Messner, recently filed to divorce the former Fleetwood Mac singer-guitarist in Los Angeles.

They reportedly met in London and have been dating “for the past few months.” Back in April, the “Girls” alum told The New York Times she’d been seeing a musician who was raised in England and Peru for “a few months,” though she stopped short of identifying him at the time. She’s since promoted Attawalpa’s music and interviews on her own social media accounts, indicating he’s the lucky guy. She made it clear he’s her beau when she took to Instagram on June 9 to gush over him on his birthday, captioning a slideshow of photos, “Everyone who comes into contact with you — creatively, emotionally, accidentally — is lucky. But I am the luckiest, because [your eccentric clothes are] now in our shared chest of drawers.” She then quotes lyrics from The Zombies’ “This Will Be Our Year” — “The warmth of your love is like the warmth of the sun and this will be our year…”
“Orange Is the New Black” alum Taryn Manning accepted a marriage proposal from Cline Street frontwoman Anne Cline on June 11.

It’s unclear how long the two women have been an item.

Meanwhile, Ronnie’s former longtime love Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola sparked rumors that she and her fiancé, Christian Biscardi, quietly called it quits after she suddenly deleted photos of him from her Instagram feed.

According to TMZ, La La Anthony filed to divorce her husband of more than a decade, Carmelo Anthony, in New York on June 17. She cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split, which is said to be amicable. TMZ reports the off-and-on couple had been separated “for a while” before the “Power” alum pulled the plug on their volatile marriage. (The duo briefly split in 2017 and then again in 2019 amid buzz the professional basketball player was unfaithful.) Also on June 17, Hollywood Unlocked reported that a mystery woman is claiming she welcomed twins with Melo in April 2021. She alleges she met the baller in New York in 2020 and ended up talking to him “almost every day” (while he was quarantined with La La and their son, Kiyan) after he pursued her hard. She says that although she knew he was legally married, she assumed he was free to do as he pleased.

Alex Rodriguez sparked romance rumors with Ben Affleck’s former long-time love Lindsay Shookus when he attended her intimate birthday bash in the Hamptons on June 18. (They were seen sitting next to each other while taking in a magic show.) But according to a Page Six source, the former professional baseball player and the “Saturday Night Live” producer have been “friends for 15 years” and “there is absolutely zero there” in terms of a revenge romance in the wake of their exes’ recent reconciliation. (Ben and Jennifer Lopez started dating again around the time she split from A-Rod.) Echoed an “Entertainment Tonight” source, “[Alex] was at [Lindsay’s] house for an hour. He is friends with a lot of women. … He isn’t going to be dating for a while.” Meanwhile, Us Weekly reported in early June that, according to a source, Ben’s ex-wife, Jennifer Garner, has given her “seal of approval” to his reconciliation with J.Lo.

On June 3, Falynn Guobadia took to Instagram to tease her first interview addressing her estranged husband Simon Guobadia’s whirlwind engagement to her “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” co-star Porsha Williams.

Three days later, he shared the receipts: security camera footage of Falynn’s alleged lover arriving at their marital home while Simon was out of town. The following week, Falynn’s interview landed on YouTube. In the lengthy chat, she said that Porsha isn’t responsible for the implosion of her marriage, that she found out about Simon and Porsha’s engagement at “the same time as everyone else” and that she didn’t believe the news at first. She went on to claim that “everything started to change” between her and Simon after they appeared on the Bravo series, though she stopped short of blaming their breakup on the reality TV show. She then claimed that she “worked hard” on the marriage but that Simon “gave up.” She also denied allegations she strayed and claimed that Simon refused to confirm or deny he’d been unfaithful.
