Chris Rock opened up about his shortcomings as a husband on his Netflix comedy special, "Chris Rock: Tamborine," which debuted on Feb. 14. The funny-man, who filed to divorce Malaak Compton-Rock in December 2014 after 19 years of marriage, admitted that he was "not a good husband" and, according to E!, echoed a previous admission that he cheated on his wife with three different women. "It's f—– up. When guys cheat, it's like we want something new. But then you know what happens? Your woman finds out, and now she's new. She is never the same again. So, now you have new, but you have a bad new," he said. "Some of these lessons you've just got to learn. Like, I brought this s— on myself. … It's my fault, because I'm a f—— a——. I didn't listen. I wasn't kind. I had an attitude, I thought, 'I pay for everything, [so] I can do what I want.' That s— don't f——- work! I just thought I was the s—." Chris also fessed up to being "addicted" to pornography during his marriage.

During a Feb. 7 appearance on the "Today" show, John Cena opened up about overcoming a rough patch with fiancée Nikki Bella that was caught on camera as part of the upcoming third season of her E! reality TV show, "Total Bellas." In a preview, Nikki asks John — purportedly of their upcoming nuptials, "So we really wanna call this off?" Said John of the clip, "I think in relationships you have highs and lows, and that was an extreme low. You have two choices: You either jump ship and start a new relationship or move forward and try to work through it. And we're gonna move forward and try to work through it." He also dished on the decision to air the difficult moment on the show: "This is a tough moment for both of us, and it was really cruddy to be in that moment and have people around you, but at the same time, if someone can watch it and maybe it helps them in their journey, then I guess that's a good reason to capture it." So are John and Nikki still altar-bound? "We both have some work to do, and we're genuinely trying our best to work through it, so I'm very happy to say that it's a situation that we're working through," he said, adding that they "haven't yet jumped ship." The "Blockers" star concluded by encouraging viewers not to give up on love: "If it's something that's really genuinely that meaningful to you, you will find a way to make it work," he said. "And I am determined through thick and thin to find a way to make it work … because I absolutely love this woman."

"She touched JAY-Z's chest and Beyonce came walking up like, 'B—-!' but she didn't say that. But her demeanor, her body from the way she walked up on her was like, 'Get your hands off my man's chest.'" Tiffany teased what happened after that but declined to divulge the exact details: "So then she started talking to that actress and some other stuff happened but I'm not gonna say nothin' yet," she said.
Camila Cabello is dating writer Matthew Hussey, Cosmopolitan magazine's love and dating columnist. The duo were caught on camera canoodling on the beach in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, on Feb. 8. It's unclear when the 20-year-old singer and the 30-year-old British life coach first coupled up.
Bristol Palin and husband Dakota Meyer are calling it quits. TMZ reported on Feb. 13 that the duo are no longer living together or following each other on Instagram and that they'd also stopped wearing their wedding rings. The following day, The Blast confirmed that Dakota had secretly filed for divorce in Texas in January. "The marriage has become insupportable because of discord or conflict of personalities between [Dakota and Bristol] that destroys the legitimate ends of the marriage relationship and prevents any reasonable expectation of reconciliation," he wrote in court documents. The off-and-on couple, who have yet to determine custody of their two daughters, revealed in June 2016 that they'd secretly tied the knot. (Bristol also has a son, Tripp, with ex Levi Johnston.) In his divorce filing, Dakota said that he is "seeking to maintain certain separate property that is not part of the community estate," reports The Blast. He is also asking that his estranged missus pay his attorney fees.

She tried, but she couldn't cut him off. She cares too much about him. This time, they're keeping things low key — but they're back together." The off-and-on duo have been seen together several times since they originally parted ways in early 2017 after about 10 months of coupledom.

This will be the rocker's fourth marriage — his previous wives include Pamela Anderson and Heather Locklear.
After a few failed marriages and a broken engagement, Jodie Sweetin has found love again. On Valentine's Day, the "Fuller House" star posted a loving message about new boyfriend Mescal Wasilewski. "Find someone who you can share this kind of love with… Someone who doesn't just show you they love you one day a year Who isn't afraid to look silly when they tell you they love you Who doesn't judge you for past mistakes, but who wants to build a better future together Who builds you up and never makes you feel small," she began a lengthy caption that appears alongside a photo collage of them holding hands and kissing. People magazine reports that Mescal — who, according to his LinkedIn profile, is a mental health professional who's the manager at Station213, a New York sober living environment — was with Jodie when she celebrated her birthday in January and also accompanied her to see the hit Broadway musical "Dear Evan Hansen" in September 2017, though his identity was unknown at the time.
Drew Barrymore dished on her awkward experience with dating in the digital age during a Feb. 9 appearance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show." After parting ways with Will Kopelman (pictured) following three years of marriage and two daughters together, the former child star decided to try her luck on Raya, a super-exclusive dating app that caters to the rich and famous, she said. Even though she never met up with anyone from the app, Drew's ex-husband managed to spot her profile before she deactivated it. "I got off the site," said the actress. "Then I'm with my children's father, wonderful Will, in the kitchen, and he walks in and goes, 'Why are you on Raya?' I was like, 'How do you know?! I was on it for four days, five days! How do you know I'm on Raya?!' He goes, 'Because I just saw your profile. It came up on my phone like two days ago.'" Drew added that she still hasn't been able to deactivate or delete her Raya account, which may prove problematic now that there appears to be a new man in her life. In photos published by DailyMail.com on Feb. 13, the actress can be seen linking arms with a mystery man outside Ellen's 60th birthday party on Feb. 10.
Gotcha! Eminem played the Internet in early February by appearing in a 55-second video with a purported new girlfriend.

When he asks why she's recording, she replies, "I'm videotaping… because why not? We have to document our life, right?" A few days later, Em revealed that the whole thing was a publicity stunt for his new "The River" music video. On Feb. 12, he took to Instagram to share a teaser trailer for the clip featuring himself arguing with the same brunette over a pregnancy test. The teaser also features Ed Sheeran asking Em and a few other people about their romantic relationships. "My personal life is not exactly a highlight reel," the rapper replies after the "Shape of You" singer, who is featured in "The River," asks what love means to him.

Jhené Aiko took to Twitter on Feb. 12 to clear up rumors that she cheated on ex-husband Dot da Genius, to whom she was married from 2014 to 2016, with current beau Big Sean. The rumors kicked off after she said during an interview on BBC Radio's "1Xtra Breakfast Show With Dotty" that she went on her first date with Sean while she was in a relationship with another man: "He wanted to take me out on a date. I had a boyfriend, but I still went as a friend. … I had never been courtside to a game, and he's cool. I told my boyfriend, 'I'm gonna go to this game,'" she recalled. But the platonic date with Sean actually took place back in 2012, before Jhené and Dot were an item: "in 2012 i was in a relationship w/someone who was secretley still married to his baby's mother the [whole year] and a half we were together… this person was not Dot," she tweeted. "i found out and we began to seperate… he moved out of my apt, we stopped speaking… and then i went to basketball game w/ a friend. even tho we werent speaking, i called my then boyfriend and let him know i was going because im considerate … it was a cool game! lots of laughs, we drank beer… and this last part may upset many of u… but after the game… i went home… there was no s——,f——,kissing, hand holding or sexting that followed … i went on to lose my brother 2 months after that basketball game. i remained single for awhile and decided to focus on my [family] and recording my ep 'sail out' & album 'souled out' … and sorry to dissappoint yet again, but me and sean remained platonic friends through out."

The onetime star of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" opened up about her relationship as part of a MailOnline interview published on Feb. 8: "This person came in at the perfect moment when my heart was open and I'm just excited to explore this next chapter of my life with him," she said of Matt. "I had many opportunities to date but I gave myself time to truly for once and for all to heal myself and my insecurities in relationships, and marriages and all that," added Yolanda, who finalized her divorce from second husband David Foster in late 2017.

The reality TV star wouldn't say much about her guy — who doesn't work at SUR, the restaurant at the center of her show — except that co-stars Kristen Doute and Katie Maloney-Schwartz introduced them to each other. Stassi split from off-and-on love Patrick Meagher after four years of coupledom in August 2017.
Khloe Kardashian knew "very quickly" that boyfriend Tristan Thompson was "the one," she wrote in a Feb. 13 blog post on her app. "I have never felt so comfortable or so safe with someone," wrote the reality TV star, who is currently expecting her first child with the NBA star. Khloe added that she and her baby daddy "took it very slowly" and "had very in-depth conversations" when they first started dating. "I wanted to make sure that those conversations were backed up by actions," she wrote. Continued the expectant mom, "Tristan was so forthcoming with his life, as I was with mine. It was really reassuring to feel that someone had the same belief systems as I did. We spoke about religion, children and our families. … It's really easy to fall in love with someone during a honeymoon phase when you haven't yet discussed the logistics of life. But you have to talk about the real things if you want a real/long-lasting relationship."
Alicia Vikander dished on married life during a cover interview for the March 2018 issue of Vogue, which hit the web on Feb. 8: "I feel I'm more happy and content than I've ever been," said Michael Fassbender's missus, who clarified that she meant happy and content in her personal life and not just professionally. The "Tomb Raider" star, who's typically very protective of her private life, also dished on why she and the "X-Men: First Class" actor kept their October 2017 nuptials off the radar: "It's not about being secretive. It's just about choosing the few things that you keep private," she said. And on working with her future husband on the romantic drama "The Light Between Oceans," Alicia had this to say: "I think he's one of the absolute best actors I've worked with. Of course he'd done more films than me, but immediately when we started to work together he was so open to wanting me to chip in new ideas and thoughts. He would be like, 'I'm stuck; what should I do?' and I would say, 'You're asking me?' That was such a sweet thing… Life is about a lot more than work, but if it's also your biggest passion, of course it's something you enjoy talking about."
