Congratulations are in order for the former Real Housewives of New Jersey star who confirmed her engagement to David Canin during an appearance on SiriusXM's Jeff Lewis Live. "We've always been engaged," she shared on the new episode. "We got engaged once, early in our relationship, and then we both realized it was way too early. And then we got engaged again last year." Dina's rep also confirmed that the former Bravo star has been engaged for a year. Some fans speculated that a proposal occurred in January 2017 when Dina posted a photo along the beach at sunset. Ultimately, the businesswoman is keeping mum on details including plans for a wedding. "You'll learn about it after," Dina joked to Jeff after predicting that the wedding would be small. "Our life is a honeymoon," she added. "We don't do a lot of traveling, but we are definitely in the honeymoon phase." Since leaving the Bravo show, Dina and David have moved to Orange County where they live near Newport Beach, Calif. The move happened after the pair survived a home robbery that proved to be a traumatic event. "I can tell you from what I know as a friend is that it completely changed her perspective on things and that it, in a way, you look at life very differently," Jeff explained during the show. "And you guys are living your life. You love each other, you're having fun and that's all really we need to say about it." That love is put on display in a few Instagram posts such as when the pair enjoyed a nice summer night out. "I can lean on him for just about anything. Like an expired passport the day before travel ooops!" Dina shared on Instagram. "Thank you @davecantin for being the man that you are and for loving everyone in your life so deeply. I'm a very lucky girl." Jeff Lewis Live airs Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 11 a.m. EST on SiriusXM Radio Andy. (Eonline)

When it comes to Diane Kruger and Norman Reedus, "opposites attract," reveals a source in the new issue of Us Weekly. First spotted packing on the PDA in March 2017, the parents-to-be (Reedus is also dad to son Mingus, 18, with ex Helena Christensen) "are so different," explains the insider. "But they really do work." While Kruger, 42, is "so buttoned up and put together," the Walking Dead star, 49, is "rough around the edges," says the source. But in the end, "they complement one another." And Reedus' rough shell is really just that: "Norman is the best guy ever and would do anything for a friend," says the insider. "He takes care of people and is there in a second if anyone needs him." So far, first-time mom Kruger has kept mum about her pregnancy. Multiple sources exclusively confirmed the news to Us in May after she appeared to be hiding a bump (and abstaining from alcohol) during the Cannes Film Festival. In recent days, she's been spotted out and about in New York City looking unmistakably expectant. Previously, the In the Fade star was married to Guillaume Canet from 2001 to 2006 and dated Joshua Jackson for 10 years from 2006 to 2016. (US Weekly)

Kim Kardashian Addresses Rumors About Baby No. 4. Kim Kardashian is revealing whether or not she Kanye West are currently planning for a fourth child. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star and the "Stronger" rapper share kids North West, 5, Saint West, 2, and Chicago West, who they welcomed via a surrogate in January. Earlier this week, reports surfaced stating that the couple is planning for a fourth baby. So what does Kim have to say about the rumors? The KKW Beauty founder addressed the speculation during an exclusive interview with E! News at the Christie's x What Goes Around Comes Around 25th Anniversary Auction on Tuesday evening in Beverly Hills. "I don't know, I don't know, I read that, I read something...none of that was true," Kim told us of the reports. "But I've been really open about it and talked about it on our show, so...I don't know." "We start filming season 16 next week, so if I think about it more and it's gonna happen, you'll definitely see it on the show," Kim shared. "But as of now, no." Fans of KUWTK will remember Kim's journey to have a third child. During a Nov. 2016 episode of the show, Kim explored the idea of surrogacy after meeting with two doctors who told her it "wouldn't be safe" for her to get pregnant again. Kim experienced difficulties during her first two pregnancies, and it was explained to her that if she were to get pregnant again it would be considered a "high-risk pregnancy." "Lately I've been thinking I would love to maybe have another baby," Kim said. "But like I had two really difficult pregnancies and really difficult deliveries so getting pregnant again it's something that does concern me." Kim and Kris Jenner went to meet with OB/GYN Dr. Crane, who explained to Kim, "Here's what I think, your pregnancies, you had toxemia, you had a retained placenta, very traumatic, we're always worried about the next serious complication. I think the potential fear of the whole situation is legitimate." "You never know that you might not have the same type of problem that might be more serious this time. You're always taking a little bit of a chance," Crane said. "There are situations where retained placenta could be life and death." After the meeting with Dr. Crane, Kim and Kourtney Kardashian met with fertility specialist Dr. Huang to get a second opinion. Dr. Huang also believed that Kim would have a "high-risk pregnancy" if she were to get pregnant again. But he said another option would be for her to get a gestational surrogate. In June 2017, multiple sources told E! News that Kim and Kanye had hired a surrogate to carry their third child. A few months later, Kim confirmed that she and Kanye were expecting a baby during a phone call with Khloe Kardashian on KUWTK. (Eonline)

Alyssa Milano Defends #MeToo Movement Amid Asia Argento Allegations. Alyssa Milano is speaking out about the sexual assault allegations against Asia Argento. The 45-year-old actress shared her thoughts during a sit-down interview with ABC News. "People that have been abused can also be abusers, and that's a sad fact," she said during the interview, which aired on Thursday's episode of Good Morning America. Earlier this week, The New York Times published a report claiming Argento had agreed to pay Jimmy Bennett $380,000 after his attorney sent her a notice of intent to sue alleging she had sexually assaulted the former child actor when he was 17 years old. The report was based on documents the newspaper received in an encrypted email from an unidentified party. Argento "strongly" denied "the contents of The New York Times article" and said she "never had any sexual relationship with Bennett." However, the newspaper stood by its reporting. After her denial, TMZ shared an alleged text exchange between Argento and a "friend," in which Argento seemingly confessed to having sex with Bennett while he was a minor. However, E! News has not verified the validity of the texts. TMZ also shared a photo of Argento and Bennett in which they appeared to be shirtless and resting their heads against a pillow. Argento's attorney did not return TMZ's or E! News' request for comment. The New York Times article came just a few months after Argento had publicly accused Harvey Weinstein of rape. The producer has denied allegations of nonconsensual sex and his attorney, Ben Brafman, told ABC News the allegations against Argento "revealed a stunning level of hypocrisy." Like Milano, Argento has been a supporter of the #MeToo movement. However, Milano told ABC News she has neither met Argento nor does she consider her a voice in the movement in terms of a "leadership capacity." "I think she's a voice in which she's told her story in a very public way," Milano said, "but there are a lot of stories like Asia's." As for those who criticize the movement as a result of Argento's allegations, Argento says, "bring it." "I don't have any fears about the #MeToo movement," she said. "They can call this movement whatever they want. To me, what that only does it enables us to identify issues, the problems and then discuss them, get them out in the open." In fact, she said the movement is "still strong and swelling." "The fact that people are still coming forward and still holding people accountable for their actions, whether that be a male predator or a female predator, to me, that's a testament that the movement is working and that there's progress being made," she said. Just a few days after The New York Times published its article, Bennett broke his silence about the allegations. "I have not made a public statement in the past days and hours because I was ashamed and afraid to be part of the public narrative," part of his statement read. "I was underage when the event took place, and I tried to seek justice in a way that made sense to me at the time because I was not ready to deal with the ramifications of my story becoming public. At the time I believed there was still a stigma to being in the situation as a male in our society." (Eonline)

Ben Affleck Checks Back Into Rehab After Intervention Staged by Jennifer Garner. Ben Affleck is checking back into rehab, according to reports. A source tells E! News a "visibly shaken" Jennifer Garner was spotted driving her soon-to-be ex-husband to rehab, just days after his breakup from Saturday Night Live producer Lindsay Shookus. The mom arrived at the actor's home in the Pacific Palisades with her bodyguard in tow on Wednesday at 6 p.m., where the actress staged an intervention for the father of their three children, Violet, Serafina and Samuel. The insider says the mother-of-three told the paparazzi it "wasn't a good time and to please leave the house," after which she, Ben and a bodyguard got in their car and drove off. Another source tells E! News the Batman star had been drinking since Monday and knew he needed help. "He told Jen and was not resistant. He asked her to take him and she wanted to be there for him," the insider reports. Affleck has long struggled with alcohol addiction, but appeared to have stuck to his vow to stop drinking since announcing he had completed rehab in March 2017. And while he had successfully finished his stint in rehab, the actor continued to seek outpatient treatment. Only recently did the Good Will Hunting star's sobriety come into question, following his breakup from Shookus and subsequent dates with Playboy model Shauna Sexton. In a statement shared on Facebook in March of last year, the producer said, "I have completed treatment for alcohol addiction; something I've dealt with in the past and will continue to confront. I want to live life to the fullest and be the best father I can be. I want my kids to know there is no shame in getting help when you need it, and to be a source of strength for anyone out there who needs help but is afraid to take the first step." "I'm lucky to have the love of my family and friends, including my co-parent, Jen, who has supported me and cared for our kids as I've done the work I set out to do. This was the first of many steps being taken towards a positive recovery," he concluded. And like she did in 2017, Garner is sticking by her co-parent in his time of need. "She wants to see him healthy and at his best. She knows that's what's best for the kids and the family," a source previously told E! News. TMZ was the first to break the news. (Eonline)

Olivia Newton-John addresses rumors she's battling cancer again. Olivia Newton-John's rep says the actress has canceled upcoming appearances over scheduling conflicts and not because of health issues, despite reports claiming she is battling cancer again. "Olivia Newton-John's two upcoming speaking appearances in Australia were canceled due to scheduling conflicts with her upcoming promotional tour for her new book, 'Don't Stop Believin'' and the ONJ Cancer Wellness & Research Centre's Wellness Walk & Research Run -- not illness, as falsely reported," her publicist, Michael Caprio, told Page Six on Wednesday. "She's looking forward to walking with everyone at the Wellness Walk on Sept. 16 in Melbourne and is excited that this year the walk is going global and people can support it by becoming virtual walkers from wherever they are in the world." New reports claimed that Newton-John's breast cancer had returned and that she was hoping to make it to her 70th birthday in September. Last November, the "Grease" star updated her fans on her second cancer battle. "I am no longer in pain and happy to say I am working again," she told Closer Weekly at the time. She also previously said that medical marijuana has helped her tremendously throughout her treatment. (PageSix)

'MacGyver' stunt coordinator sustains serious head injury on set. Justin Sundquist, who sued CBS Corp. and CBS TV Studios last year after being injured on the set of "Hawaii Five-0," has sustained a serious head injury during a stunt on another CBS/CBS Studios series, "MacGyver," which is shooting in Atlanta. "We have learned about an injury to stunt coordinator Justin Sundquist that occurred late Monday on the set of 'MacGyver' in Atlanta," CBS TV Studio said in a statement to Deadline.

A source tells Deadline that Sundquist was injured during a stunt that involved transferring from one vehicle to another. Deadline hears he was conscious after the accident and was put in a medically induced coma because of the seriousness of his head injury. Deadine hears that he remains hospitalized. According to sources, production on "MacGyver" has not been interrupted by the incident. Sundquist sued CBS last year, claiming he was hit by a car during a stunt on "Hawaii Five-0" that was the result of to a "series of reckless, negligent mishaps," including "a rushed, hectic set," "lack of safety meeting and clear safety instructions" and "turning a blind eye to controlled substance abuse by key safety personnel." He claimed that on the morning of the accident, "a key personnel who had safety responsibilities was under the influence of narcotic controlled substances, which caused and/or contributed to Mr. Sundquist's injuries and damages." The suit added that the unnamed individual "enticed certain stunt performers with a quid pro quo: -- if they supplied him with pills, he supplied them with work." Deadline reached out to Sundquist's attorney on the "Hawaii Five-0" case but has yet to hear back. Sundquist's injury in Georgia comes a year after stuntman John Bernecker was killed there on the set of AMC's "The Walking Dead." (PageSix)

Noah Cyrus Reveals Her Struggle With Anxiety and Depression. Noah Cyrus is opening up about her music and how her songs are a reflection of her emotions. The 18-year-old "Stay Together" singer and younger sister of Miley Cyrus speaks candidly in the September issue of L'Officiel USA about her struggle with anxiety and depression. Talking about her new EP, released this month, Cyrus shares, "This EP is mostly just about how my emotions have been, and about my anxiety, and about how I've been struggling with depression, and how it's okay to feel those feelings." "A lot of people like to judge you, and make fun of you on the Internet, and people make you feel crazy whenever you're in a depression or having anxiety or having a panic attack," she continues. "It's about that and being sad and having your emotions and not being able to ignore the feelings you're having." Cyrus also tells the outlet that the next series of her art and music are "an exploration of a more 'emo' side for sure." "I think that probably stems from growing up with Trace Cyrus in my house because he was the king of emo," Cyrus says, referencing her brother, who previously fronted the band Metro Station. On Monday, Cyrus released a new song with her boyfriend Lil Xan called "Live or Die." That same day, the couple attended the 2018 MTV VMAs together, where they dished to E!

"I mean 'Live or Die' just came out last night and it's already going crazy." He then added, "Life's a blessing, to meet her was a blessing, I'm obsessed with her." (Eonline)

Korn Singer Jonathan Davis Breaks His Silence on His Wife's Tragic Death. Korn singer Jonathan Davis is opening up about the passing of his wife Deven Davis. In an open letter published to Instagram on Wednesday, the musician acknowledged "there has been a lot of speculation over what really happened surrounding the death of my wife." He then attempted to set the record straight on her mental health, her history of drug addiction and her true self. "Over the past decade, my wife has been very very sick," he wrote. "She had a serious mental illness and her addiction was a side effect. I loved her with ALL of my being. When she was her true self, she was an amazing wife, amazing mother and amazing friend. Deven had a huge heart, and she would never intentionally hurt her children or anyone that she loved. She was an incredibly nurturing, giving, loving and hilarious person. She was full of life and joy, and she would do anything to share that with those around her." Jonathan admitted he "tried to hide what was going on for so long in order to protect her;" however he decided to speak the truth given the recent tragedy. "She is the reason I have advocated so hard for those struggling with their mental health," he wrote. "I want her story to inspire people to reach out for help, and not to be afraid or hide from their illness." He then asked his followers to show compassion to those struggling with their mental health. "If you know someone with a mental illness, have compassion and empathy and know that they are not bad people, they are suffering," he wrote. "I want this to inspire change. I want California law to change to help people like me help others get the help they need. How can someone who is so sick realize themselves that they need help? She wasn't well enough to understand how sick she really was and she wasn't able to get the help for herself that she really needed. This shouldn't have to happen to other mothers, or anyone for that matter." The frontman said he'd "give anything" for his kids "to have their mother back" but took comfort in knowing his wife had "found freedom from her illness" and was "finally at peace." Addressing his loved one, he then added, "Deven, I love you bebe. I'll never love anyone the way I loved you and I'll never get over losing you. I promise I'll do everything in my power to raise our precious boys the right way, teach them the good values you wanted them to have so badly and to break the cycle of abuse we both experienced as kids. I'll do everything I can to make your dreams that you had for the future come true in your memory." He continued, "The tattoo down your back, from the poem I wrote for you when we started dating, said, 'Even in death, I'll be by your side my love,' in German. I swear one day I'll be there with you by your side when my ride here on earth is over. I love you, Luber." According to TMZ, Deven died on Aug. 17. The celebrity news outlet reported she had been living at a sober home before her passing. The cause of death was not revealed. Jonathan and Deven married in 2004. According to TMZ, he filed for divorce in 2016. (Eonline)

The Latest Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt Custody News Isn't Quite What You Think. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have yet to reach a custody agreement despite reports stating the contrary. A source close to the proceedings tells E! News that reports of a new custody arrangement are false. The source states that the former couple's original court ordered agreement remains in place. According to court documents, Jolie and Pitt were scheduled to convene on Aug. 21. Our source says this meeting has been postponed. Another source tells E! News that Jolie's and Pitt's lawyers recently met to iron out details for a custody plan for the next few months, which has been "very time consuming." The stars share six children: Maddox Jolie-Pitt17, Pax Jolie-Pitt,14, Zahara Jolie-Pitt, 13, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt12, Knox Jolie-Pitt, and Vivienne Jolie-Pitt, 10. Meanwhile, a third source tells E! News, "In terms of the kids' relationship with Brad, Angelina definitely remains committed to helping the kids heal with their father." Jolie filed for divorce in September 2016, citing irreconcilable differences as the cause of the split. Just a few days later, news broke that the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services and the FBI were looking into an alleged altercation between Pitt and his eldest son Maddox. The alleged incident reportedly took place onboard the family's private plane. Pitt has been cleared in both investigations and no charges were filed. "I was really on my back and chained to a system when Child Services was called," the actor recalled to GQ. "And you know, after that, we've been able to work together to sort this out. We're both doing our best. I heard one lawyer say, 'No one wins in court -- it's just a matter of who gets hurt worse.' And it seems to be true, you spend a year just focused on building a case to prove your point and why you're right and why they're wrong, and it's just an investment in vitriolic hatred. I just refuse. And fortunately, my partner in this agrees. It's just very, very jarring for the kids, to suddenly have their family ripped apart." Jolie requested sole physical custody of the children. However, Pitt responded by filing for joint custody. By December of that year, the parents had reached a temporary agreement in which the kids would stay in Jolie's care and Pitt would have "therapeutic" visitations. The custody battle soon turned ugly. Near the end of that year, Pitt filed a motion asking a judge to seal records surrounding the children -- arguing his ex-wife and her attorneys had compromised the kids' privacy through court filings in attempt to undercut him. The two later hired a private judge to deal with the proceedings and began speaking again. Pitt even reportedly joined Jolie and the kids on a trip in early 2017. "Things have calmed [and] settled between Brad and Angelina. It's not as tense as it had been," a source told E! News at the time. "They are focused on the kids and working to do what's best for them." Still, the battle endured. In May 2018, a source told E! News the two were "at odds over custody." The dispute was reportedly "why the divorce is not final" and has "dragged on for months." Some of the disagreement seemed to stem from the stars' film schedules and travel. So, the two celebrities reached a new custody agreement for the summer. According to the court documents, Pitt had physical custody of the children for four hours per day from June 8 to June 17. These hours changed to 10 hours per day from June 27 to July 1. Pitt was also scheduled to have custody for set dates later in July. Maddox, however, was allowed to determine how much time he spent with each parent given his age. The judge also determined "not having a relationship with their father is harmful" to the children and that it is "critical that each of them have a healthy and strong relationship with their father and mother." But by the end of the summer, things hadn't gotten much better. Earlier this month, Jolie accused Pitt of not paying any "meaningful" child support. Pitt and his attorneys fired back by filing a four-page brief stating Jolie's request was "unnecessary, omits material information and is a thinly-veiled effort to manipulate media coverage." They also stated Pitt "wanted to bifurcate the issue of marital status and have the divorce finalized before other pending issues were resolved." Pitt and Jolie married in 2014. It's been nearly two years since the initial divorce filing. (Eonline)

Divvying up Aretha Franklin's assets with no will or trust left behind isn't the easiest thing in the world, but it doesn't have to be a messy situation. "To assume it won't go smoothly because she died without a will isn't an accurate assumption," New York-based trusts and estates litigator Amanda Dichillo, who has no affiliation with Franklin or her family, told Page Six on Wednesday. Franklin died, reportedly without having drawn up a will, on Aug. 16 at the age of 76. Her fortune, a reported $80 million, is expected to go to her four children as they become equal beneficiaries under the law in Michigan, per reports. And although "beneficiaries can fight over division of assets," Dichillo told us that in the case of Franklin's fortune, that may be prevented. Her niece Sarah Garret Owens was appointed as the personal representative to administer the estate, Forbes, a decision that was agreed upon by Franklin's sons, one of whom is under a conservatorship. However, the "Natural Woman" singer has assets that include music rights and royalties, which could delay a solution, similar to the situation involving Prince, whose estate has not been settled two years after his death. Dichillo also mentioned the possibility that she could have a handwritten will or that her former spouses or family members could "come out of the woodwork" claiming Franklin had verbally promised a pricey possession or certain amount of money. As for why Franklin never had a will in the first place even though her attorney reportedly was after her signing one for years, "They don't want to face death," Dichollo said of similar situations she's seen. "They don't want to talk about it." (Page Six)

Ed King -- a classic rocker best known as a guitarist for Lynyrd Skynyrd and co-writer of "Sweet Home Alabama" -- died Wednesday at his home in Nashville ... according to his family. Ed played guitar and bass for the Southern rock band from 1972 to 1975 and again from 1987 to 1996. He co-wrote one of Skynyrd's most legendary hits with Ronnie Van Zant and Gary Rossington ... none of whom were actually from Alabama. King was not with the band in 1977 when Van Zant and 2 other members were killed in a plane crash. He rejoined Lynyrd Skynyrd in 1987 but was reportedly forced to leave the band again in 1996 due to congestive heart failure. Ed was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2006 along with all of the other former members of the band. He was featured in the recently released Lynyrd Skynyrd documentary, 'If I Leave Here Tomorrow' as well. King was also one of the founding members of Strawberry Alarm Clock, formed in L.A. in the mid-1960s. He was 68. RIP. (TMZ)
