Jennifer Lawrence has reportedly moved in with Cooke Maroney
For months, it's been pretty clear to anyone in Jennifer Lawrence and her boyfriend, Cooke Maroney, that the two are deeply smitten, as evidenced by their smooch and cuddle-filled attendance at an NHL game in November and an abundance of similarly PDA-packed strolls around the Big Apple. Now, an insider tells Us Weekly the lovebirds are living together. "Things between them are very serious," says the insider. " They definitely appear to be in it for the long hall." J.Law, 28, had reportedly been dating the 33-year-old art gallery director for a few weeks as of June, when news of their romance first surfaced. An art history expert with degrees from Middlebury College and NYU, Cooke is the director of the Gladstone gallery, where he represents art world stars including Lena Dunham's dad, Carroll Dunham, and Matthew Barney, according to Us. Jennifer was previously involved with her "Mother!" director, Darren Aronofsky, for nearly a year before they called it quits, having decided to be friends instead.

Kim Kardashian West's baby news 'is heavily influencing' her sisters' plans to expand their families
Kim Kardashian West's daughter, Chicago West, Kylie Jenner's daughter, Stormi Webster and Khloe Kardashian's daughter, True Thompson, were born within months of each other, making it easy and fun for their moms to bond even more while their new daughters spend tons of time together. In the wake of news Kim and Kanye West are expecting their fourth child via surrogate in May, a Kar-Jenner family source tells E! News Kim's sisters are starting to think about expanding their families again, too. "Kim having another baby this year is heavily influencing her other sisters and their baby plans," says the insider. "They all loved being pregnant at the same time and everyone wants all of the kids to be close in age. Everyone jokes about having another round of 'triplets' all the time." Kylie told fans back in October that she definitely wants another child. Khloe, meanwhile, is rumored to want a sibling for True, as well. One thing could hinder another baby boom for the sisters, though. Last month, Stormi's dad, Travis Scott, told Rolling Stone he plans to propose to Kylie when he's sure he can do it perfectly. Since Kylie openly struggled with some body issues after having a child at 20, something tells us a wedding might come before baby No. 2.

Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik are reportedly 'spending time apart'
The last time we saw Gigi Hadid and her on-off beau, Zayn Malik, together on social media was back in October, when Gigig shared a sweet photo of herself snuggling with Zayn that she captioned, "flyin' home to my happy place." Now that the holidays — not to mention, Gigi's appearance in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show — have come and gone with no sign of Zayn having been at her side, a new batch of split rumors is starting to swirl around the couple. It seems the two "have been spending apart since early November," according to an E! News source, who claims the longtime couple both "think it's best for the sake of their relationship right now." Citing the new album Zayn's been working on and Gigi's family-focused time since the VS show, the insider says the two have "both been really focused on themselves and their separate careers." When some fans wondered on social media why Zayn had skipped Gigi's lingerie show, a source told E! the singer's "not one for public outings" and that the two were keeping their relationship low-key. Says the website's latest source: "They are in different points in their lives right now and decided they needed the time to breath apart from each other. They are still in touch and both hope that things will work out, but their relationship is always up and down."

Taylor Swift's app is going away as of Feb. 1
Sorry, Swifties. The Swift Life is on the way out. Taylor Swift's fan app, which launched alongside her "Reputation" album, is being taken offline after Jan. 31, according to the New York Post. In a statement on the app's Twitter (via the Post) this week, the company that manages the app, explained: "Over a year ago, we launched The Swift Life alongside Taylor's critically acclaimed, 6th studio album, 'Reputation.' It provided a creative and inclusive place for Taylor and her fans to connect with each other while expressing themselves in a uniquely interactive community." The statement went on to say: "As the 'Reputation' era comes to an end, our time on The Swift Life will be ending too," before thanking fans who'd purchased the app. Taylor was sued last summer by a man who claimed the singer had usurped the name of his trademarked consulting company name, SwiftLife, although it's unclear if the lawsuit is connected to the app ending.
Kaley Cuoco thanks her pets, 'new hubby' for a fantastic 2018
Fresh off her somewhat belated honeymoon with Karl Cook, Kaley Cuoco felt particularly enamored with her memories from 2018 as the year came to a close. Sharing what appears to have been a professionally shot photo of two canine members of her impressive and growing pet menagerie, the "Big Bang Theory" star wrote on Instagram: "💫 Happy New Year!!! This last year has been filled with a new hubby, amazing friends and family , dogs, horses , bunnies, a honeymoon, my career taking a shift after 12 years, major shoulder surgery, running my own production company, building our dream ranch and forming a future🎉," adding, "Very grateful to everyone that's had a hand in helping me progress and can't wait for everything to come! 💫." Kaley and her equestrian "new hubby" were forced to delay their honeymoon — which they eventually celebrated in Switzerland last month — because of the surgery she was forced to undergo right after their June wedding. It was announced last year that "The Big Bang Theory" would not be renewed after the current season ends in May.
Halsey and her British rocker beau go Instagram official
Halsey and her rumored new man, Yungblud, aka Dominic Harrison, went Instagram official this week when Halsey shared a photo of the two walking at night as Yungblud wrapped an arm around her, hugging her close. "Camden: now with a cuter filter," she captioned the shot, adding a heart Emoji. It's not the first heart that's appeared in a caption for a photo of the two recently, but that "cuter" reference sure makes it hard to argue the two aren't an item. They also apparently have an unlikely connection. The Blast reports the 20-year-old British rocker started out as an actor on various Disney shows. The website also points out Halsey's long been a fan of all things Disney, particularly the Happiest Place on Earth. The New Jersey-based singer split for the second time from G-Eazy in October.

Two more wealthy media investors facing sexual misconduct allegations joined Les Moonves on yachts for NYE
Turns out that during Les Moonves' New Year's getaway to St. Barts, he was flanked by at least two other powerful media men facing sexual misconduct scandals. The New York Post reports producer/director Brett Ratner — whose deal with RatPac-Dune Entertainment was recently yanked amid allegations from multiple women that he sexually assaulted and harassed them — also celebrated New Year's on and around St. Barts. The Post notes that other RatPac-Dune investors including Brett's friend (and Mariah Carey's ex-fiance) James Packer parked his yacht right by the David Geffen owned yacht Les and his wife, Julie Chen, were hanging out on. Billionaire and Uber investor Shervin Pishevar was also parked on a yacht by Les and Julie. Shervin recently lost his foothold in his venture capital firm over sexual misconduct allegations, according to the Post. Like Les and Brett, Shervin has denied the allegations.
Hailee Steinfeld responds to rumors she labeled ex, Niall Horan, a 'narcissist'
"Nothing but love!" That's how Hailee Steinfeld assured fans she wasn't referring to Niall Horan when she reposted quotes and comments about narcisissts on her Instagram Story this week. After reposting a Julia Michaels note that read, "New Years resolution: No more dating narcissists," she weighed in to support Julia, writing, "God bless you @juliamichaels. Preach it." She followed that with multiple quotes from Julia's riff on narcissism, including, "narcissists are masters of manipulation" and they "believe they're entitled to every shred of their partner's attention, so they label anything else as 'selfish,'" according to Just Jared. When fans went after Hailee, suggesting she was talking about her recent ex, Niall, she neither confirmed the romance (as she and Niall had done during their relationship, which ended recently), nor explained what inspired her interest in Julia's posts. "No hidden messages my loves," she told followers. "Just reposted an interesting read that I'm sure some of y'all can relate to. Nothing but love!"
