Jonah Hill and Girlfriend Gianna Santos Are Engaged. This Is the End of Jonah Hill's life as a single man, because he is engaged to Gianna Santos. A rep for the star confirms that the Mid90s director is engaged to his girlfriend of one-year. While their wedding will make Gianna a legal member of the Feldstein family, it looks like she has already been warmly welcomed into the clan with open arms. On his mom Sharon Feldstein's Instagram, Santos has been included in various family photos taken at celebrations for Passover, Hanukkah and Thanksgiving. Perhaps this holiday season, Jonah and Gianna will take the reins as hosts of the family dinners. On Tuesday morning, E! News reported that the Maniac actor recently purchased a $6.77 million house in the coastal city of Santa Monica, Calif. Their future marital home has 4-beds and 4.5-baths, including a private guest house that boasts a sauna and fireplace. Luckily for Gianna and Jonah, the home also features a large pool and outdoor entertainment space for when they want to kick back and relax after a long day at work. And the future bride and groom will need all the R&R they can get considering they are busy people. After many years of standing front and center on films like Superbad, Jonah is stepping behind the scenes to direct. This year he made his directorial debut with Mid90s, be fore working on projects with artists Vampire Weekend and Travis Scott. Meanwhile, according to her LinkedIn, Gianna is a content manager at the beauty startup Violet Grey, which dubs itself as "the Industry's Beauty Edit." Prior to dating Gianna, the actor was linked to Erin Galpern. Congratulations, Jonah and Gianna! (Eonline)

Nick Jonas Insists Priyanka Chopra Knows His Age After She Accidentally Got it Wrong. You didn't think Nick Jonas' fans were going to let this slip by, did you? In a recent Instagram post celebrating Nick and designer John Varvatos' newly-launched tequila line, Priyanka Chopra mistakenly referred to her husband as 27-years-old instead of his actual age, 26. As she put it, "So proud. When you own your own tequila at 27!" It didn't take long for internet trolls (with clearly little else to do) to begin calling out Chopra's mistake, which should be easily forgivable given that Jonas is turning 27 in just a matter of days. The singer celebrates his birthday on Sep. 16, so it's possible Priyanka is planning a blowout bash for her beau and simply has Nick's big 2-7 on the brain. Nick caught wind of the drama and took to Instagram Stories with a clap back. "[Priyanka] definitely knows my birthday everyone," he captioned a meme depicting his wife as Batman slapping the internet. Priyanka re-posted the message and wrote, "'Nuff said!" And in fact, this isn't the first time the actress has been asked to address their 10-year age difference. "People gave us a lot of s--t about that and still do," she told InStyle earlier this year. "I find it really amazing when you flip it and the guy is older, no one cares and actually people like it." The Quantico star further discussed the backlash surrounding their relationship, explaining, "Commenting on some stupidity means it eventually becomes important because I gave it importance. A lot of people don't understand that way of thinking. It's not a myopic thought... It's a long-term plan." She and Jonas tied the knot in an extravagant, $800,000 wedding ceremony last December. More recently, Priyanka has joined the Jonas Brothers on the road for their ongoing Happiness Begins tour. Consider this celebrity couple unbothered by the opinions of their haters. (Eonline)

Joey King Cuddles Up to Boyfriend, The Act Exec Steven Piet. New couple alert! Joey King was spotted getting cozy with producer Steven Piet over the weekend. On Saturday, the star of Hulu's The Act and her new beau attended Cinespia's screenings of Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. The couple watched the film alongside King's sisters, Hunter King and Kelli King, as well as their dates. "They were very affectionate and were with her two sisters sitting watching the movie together. Joey and Steven cuddled the entire time and looked very happy together," a source tells E! News. "They had snacks and drinks and were laughing with her sisters." Adele and son Angelo, Cara Delevingne, Ashley Benson and Margot Robbie were also in attendance at Cinespia's Labor Day Weekend 30th Anniversary Celebration, presented by Amazon Studios & Amazon Prime Video. It seems as though King met her new man at work, as he's the co-executive producer of The Act and directed two episodes of the series. The show, which follows the story of Gypsy Rose Blanchard and her mother Dee Dee Blanchard, has garnered rave reviews from critics, even earning King an Emmy nomination. Prior to her role in The Act, King earned praise for her role in Netflix's The Kissing Booth, which she starred in alongside Jacob Elordi. After sparking a romance on the film's set, King and Elordi went on to date for over a year, before reportedly breaking up in late 2018. The duo recently reunited to film The Kissing Booth 2, however, it seems that they've both moved on. Elordi was even spotted on vacation in Greece with his Euphoria co-star Zendaya just days ago.

Why Brad Pitt Committed to His Sobriety After His Split From Angelina Jolie. When it comes to acting, Brad Pitt aims to "get to a place of absolute truth." However, digging deep isn't always easy. The 55-year-old A-lister proved this to be true during an interview with The New York Times published Wednesday. In 2017, Pitt was cast in the movie Ad Astra. He was also making headlines over his split from Angelina Jolie, who had filed for divorce just a few months prior. James Gray, the director of the film, claimed Pitt "definitely used the stimuli from his life" while working on the movie. "Now, I didn't get personal with him about it at all -- I don't think it's my business, or even my job -- but he investigated the essence of the character through himself," the filmmaker said. When asked about that period in his life, Pitt acknowledged he had "family stuff going on" but said he'd "leave it at that." But after he was questioned if Ad Astra helped him work through some loneliness he may have been feeling at the time, the star began to open up. "The fact is, we all carry pain, grief and loss," he replied. "We spend most of our time hiding it, but it's there, it's in you. So, you open up those boxes." According to the newspaper, Pitt spent a year and a half at Alcoholics Anonymous after the divorce filing. The Ocean's Eleven star has opened up about his past drinking habits before, including during a 2017 interview with GQ Style in which he described himself as a "professional." "I had taken things as far as I could take it, so I removed my drinking privileges," he told The New York Times. Per the publication, the celebrity's recovery group was composed entirely of men -- not one of whom shared Pitt's truths with the tabloids. During the interview, Pitt said it was "actually really freeing just to expose the ugly sides of yourself" and that there's "great value in that." "You had all these men sitting around being open and honest in a way I have never heard," he recalled. "It was this safe space where there was little judgment, and therefore little judgment of yourself." The Once Upon a Time in Hollywood star remains committed to his sobriety. While his divorce from Jolie brought a whole new level of scrutiny to his private life, Pitt was used to making headlines. The press had covered everything from his movies to his dating history for years. However, he's learned to tune out the noise surrounding the public's opinions. "Those dubious thoughts, the mind chatter, the rat in the skull -- that's comedy," he said. "It's just ridiculous that we would beat ourselves up that way. It doesn't matter. I spent too much of life wrestling with those thoughts, or being tethered to those thoughts, or caged by those thoughts." To read Pitt's full interview, check out The New York Times' profile.

Radio Host Delilah Says Faith 'Saved My Sanity' After the Death of Two Sons: 'I Choose Joy'. Speaking to FOX News about her book One Heart at a Time, famed host Delilah reveals that her faith helped her through the double tragedy. Romance radio star Delilah endured unimaginable heartbreak in recent years, with the loss of her 16-year-old son Sammy to complications from sickle cell anemia in 2012, and her 18-year-old son Zack to suicide in 2017. Speaking to FOX News about her book One Heart at a Time, the famed host reveals that her faith helped her through the double tragedy. "I came to my faith in my 20s," she tells the outlet, "And it is my faith that has kept me going through losing two boys, two of my sons, Sammy and Zack. There is a verse that says, 'Every one of our days is numbered before a single one comes to pass.' That one verse has saved my sanity because all of my sons' days were numbered. God knew when they were going to leave this earth before they came to this earth and knowing that changes everything. Because if I didn't believe that, then I would do the what-ifs. What if I had done this differently? What if I had done that differently?" "I would drive myself insane with the what-ifs," the 59-year-old added. "But the reality is I did the best that I could with the information I had. All of our days are numbered. God already knows when he's going to call me home. So, while I have today, while he's given me this 24-hours, I can spend it mourning and depressed over what I've lost or I can spend it rejoicing in children who still need me, who still need their mom to be fully present. So, I choose life. I choose joy. I choose to invest my energies into those people that God has in my live today." Faith had helped her through the tough times that occurred earlier in her life. She recalls the father of her unborn child walking out on her, and then losing her job shortly after. In all, she says she was fired 12 times over the course of her career. What's more, she lost a brother at an early age. "I had to find answers. I had to know, would I ever see my brother again? Would I ever get to laugh with him again? The last conversation we had was short and brief and loving, but it wasn't enough. So, I went on a spiritual quest, if you will, questioning, trying this, trying that, trying different religions." She credits a book called More Than a Carpenter with changing her life. "I came to my faith, which was the same faith my brother had had for years, and I realized I'll see him again. I know exactly where he is and I know that he's not suffering, he's not hurting, he's not miserable. He's at peace and filled with joy. When I'm there, I'll be there. But, that faith has gotten me through losing both my parents, my grandparents, two children, got me through divorces, got me through being fired." Delilah has used the promotional tour for her book as a platform to discuss what she calls an "epidemic" of teen suicides. "We need to start having open conversations, as painful as they are," she said during an appearance on Good Morning America last fall, "because it's epidemic." Speaking to PEOPLE in 2017, the mom of 14 said Zack was her "wild child." (He's one of her three biological children; the other 11 were welcomed through adoption.) "Thirteen broken bones, umpteen trips to the hospital with appendicitis, tonsillitis, a fractured skull. He was wild but so so so sweet," she said. "He was a faithful friend to the outcast and the troubled. Dozens of his friends have written to me and told me he was like a counselor to them." She also opened up about the heartbreaking message her son left behind: "His goodbye note did not mention sadness, anger, angst or depression," she said. "Just a pressing madness about feeling like this world was not his home." One Heart at a Time is out nationwide today. (People)

Why Jennifer Aniston Says No to Social Media. As Jennifer Aniston put it to InStyle, "I know when I'm comfortable with something [or someone], and I know when I'm not." While the star was talking about her consistency in fashion and colleagues, she might as well have been describing her stance on social media. While she's one of the most famous actresses of our time, she's stayed away from the platforms that have made and broken careers in the digital age. As it was explained by the October issue, the cover star "worries about the damaging effects of social media on young people figuring out their identity." "They're doing it through someone else's lens, which has been filtered and changed... and then it's 'like me, don't like me, did I get liked?' There's all this comparing and despairing," she told the magazine. As Aniston understands, there's enough to handle when you're a young adult. "When I was younger, I was in hell," she told the magazine in reference to her curly locks. "I tried every product known to man." Before her breakout role in Friends at 25, she had been on six other TV shows. "I waitressed for years in New York before I got anything. And I was a telemarketer selling time-shares in the Poconos. I didn't make one sale. I was terrible at it. I was like, 'Why do we have to call people at dinnertime?'" Now, she's an A-list star with more than three decades in the business, including as an executive producer and star of The Morning Show, one of AppleTV+'s first series. "When we found out that we were among one of the first shows to be bought by Apple, Reese [Witherspoon] and I both had this pinch-me moment," she told InStyle. "The first women to help launch a network as actors and producers, having a beautiful piece of that pie that we really earned and deserved. We had a big toast to that." Of course, such a feat came with plenty of work. "To me, a TV series used to mean a studio audience and five cameras. I got in at 10 and was out by 5," she explained. "The Morning Show was like doing two films back-to-back over seven months. After a full day of shooting, I'd go home and keep working, looking at cuts, weighing in on casting for the next week, preparing for the next day's work. When the show wrapped, I crawled into my bed for a solid week." Aniston's prep for her role as Alex Levy, one of the morning news co-hosts at the center of the story, involved those familiar with that life: talking to Diane Sawyer and, according to the magazine, "going behind the scenes at Good Morning America at 5 a.m." It's work that has fortunately gotten less rare for actresses beyond 50 years old, which Aniston celebrated in February. "I don't know what it is because I don't feel any different. Things aren't shutting down in any way," she told the magazine. "I feel physically incredible. So, it's weird that it's all of a sudden getting telegraphed in a way that's like, 'You look amazing for your age.' I think we need to establish some etiquette around that dialogue and verbiage." As for Aniston's own aging mantra, "I am all about living to whatever age I'm supposed to...as long as I'm thriving." The October issue of InStyle is on sale Sept. 20. (Eonline)

Kevin Hart is on the mend, but he won't be out of the woods for a long time, the comedian will require extensive physical therapy ... TMZ has learned. Sources close to Kevin tell us he's expected to be released from the hospital by the end of the week. However, he'll have a heavy physical therapy workload in the coming weeks, along with a steady schedule of follow-up doctor's appointments. While we've been told Kevin's Sunday night back surgery was a success -- there's still work to be done to ensure he comes back 100 percent. TMZ broke the story ... cops say Kevin was riding shotgun in his 1970 Plymouth Barracuda early Sunday morning when it careened off Mulholland Highway, leaving the driver and a backseat passenger pinned. Kevin left the scene to get medical help and was taken to a nearby hospital. Crash investigators told us alcohol was not a factor, but we are told cops are looking into excessive speed as a possible cause of the wreck. A witness within earshot of the crash said they heard tires screeching like the vehicle was peeling out before hearing a loud boom. The driver of the vehicle, Jared Black, was airlifted to UCLA Medical Center, but his condition is unknown. Jared's fiancee, Rebecca Broxterman who is Eniko Hart's trainer was in the backseat, but made it out with minor pain. (TMZ)

Bam Margera's sit-down with Dr. Phil proved to be even more explosive than previously believed ... and it was Bam's mom who dished some tough love. TMZ's obtained a clip of the episode Dr. Phil shot during his one-on-one session with the "Jackass" star ... and it's pretty evident why Bam needed professional help. Bam lashed out at his wife, Nikki, and also his mom ... who participated remotely. Bam dropped the words no mother wants to hear after she told him he's addicted to drama. As we reported ... Bam went public with his struggles a month ago, practically begging Dr. Phil for help and the doc obliged. After this emotional 3-hour session, Dr. Phil -- who recorded without a studio audience -- convinced Bam to head to rehab. Since then, Bam's had some hiccups on his road to recovery -- he left rehab and ended up at a bar, before giving it another shot ... at a different treatment center. His most recent attempt has gone smoother ... aside from a trip to the hospital to treat swelling in his body. We got him out late last week -- during a lunch outing with his sponsor -- and he looked great, telling us his treatment's going well, and some special friends still have his back. (TMZ)

Aaron Carter is adding to his home arsenal ... hitting up a pawn shop to purchase 2 guns and a bunch of ammunition. The singer dropped by Rick's Pawn Shop Tuesday in Lancaster, CA ... and we're told Aaron bought a handgun and a rifle, plus 300 rounds of hollow tip bullets. Looks like Aaron is dead set on starting his own gun collection after inheriting a massive cache of weapons from his father. Aaron got his gun license less than 2 weeks ago, and he immediately bought a 9mm handgun and 2 assault rifles. After Tuesday's purchase, Aaron owns at least 5 firearms -- still a long way to go to catch up to the 500 guns he says his pops passed down to him. We broke the story ... Aaron told us last week owning assault weapons is a necessity, because his dad taught him to protect himself and his family by any means necessary. Aaron also said his mental stability is "infinite" -- despite loved ones being concerned about his mental health. BTW ... Aaron had his background check flagged two years ago when he tried to buy a gun in Florida, which was around the time he entered rehab. Shortly after his latest weapons purchase, Aaron made it clear he's fully educated on gun safety, and has passed all necessary courses. Point being ... now that he has the green light to buy guns, he's going to take full advantage. (TMZ)

Kevin Federline Accuses Britney Spears' Father of Abusing Their 13-Year-Old Son. Kevin Federline has reportedly come forward with allegations of child abuse against Britney Spears' father, Jamie Spears. The former professional dancer, who shares kids Sean Federline, 13, and Jayden James Federline, 12, with the superstar singer, has filed a police report against his ex-father-in-law, E! News can confirm. A source tells us that Kevin filed the report on Aug. 25 after an alleged physical altercation between Jamie and his and Britney's eldest son, Sean. The alleged incident between Jamie and Sean, which is currently under investigation, took place at Jamie's home. According to TMZ, they got into an argument and "at some point Jamie allegedly put hands on him," but Sean was not injured. Britney, who tied the knot with Kevin in 2004 and filed for divorce from the "Popozo" star in 2006, has yet to comment publicly on the allegations against her father. Additionally, E! News has learned that Federline was also granted a restraining order against Jamie on behalf of Preston and Jayden. Our source says Jamie and Britney did not oppose the restraining order, which severs the contact Jamie can have with his grandchildren and prohibits him from being able to act as the mandated supervisor when the kids are in Britney's custody. These claims have emerged just as details of Britney and Kevin's new child custody arrangement have surfaced. Court documents obtained by E! News show that the exes have agreed that Kevin will get custody of their sons' 70 percent of the time, while Britney will get 30 percent unsupervised custodial rights. Britney and Kevin had previously agreed on 50-50 custody. According to reports, the duo's new arrangement has been in place since Aug. 2018, but became official and formalized last week. Federline's lawyer and powerhouse family law attorney Mark Vincent Kaplan tells E! News, "Kevin in no way wants to prevent the boys from having any unreasonable custodial contact with their mom. The boys love their mother but the existing [custody] arrangement, as reflected in the terms of the most recently entered order, are reflecting what Kevin believes is in the children's best interest." E! News has reached out to Spears' camp for comment. (Eonline)

It appears Chris Jericho's AEW World Championship belt got SNATCHED ... 'cause the wrestling superstar claims his shiny new hardware was stolen over the weekend. The 48-year-old filed a police report with Tallahassee PD in Florida on Sunday ... saying he landed at the airport and headed over to Longhorn Steakhouse for some food ... and somehow along the way the belt went missing. It's confusing ... here's what the police doc says. "The limo driver shuttled the victim to Longhorn for dinner. The victim remained at Longhorn while the limo driver returned to the airport. The victim had taken the wrong luggage from the airport and the driver took it back to the terminal. When the driver picked up the victim from the restaurant, the belt was missing." It's unclear if the stolen (or lost) belt was the new AEW belt Jericho won on Saturday ... but it's likely it was. According to the report, responding officers searched the limo and airport for the belt ... but couldn't come up with it. In the report ... the victim is listed as Christopher "Jericho" Irvine, W/M, 11/9/70? We've reached out to Jericho for comment ... so far, no word back. (TMZ)

R. Kelly is finally out of solitary confinement and will join the general population, even though prosecutors called BS on his isolation woes. The singer's attorney, Steven Greenberg, tells TMZ ... Kelly was moved Tuesday and claims the singer was only kept in solitary by prison officials as a form of punishment -- due to his celebrity and the prurient nature of his alleged crimes. Greenberg tells us that although R. Kelly will be in gen pop -- which is normally considered more dangerous, especially for high-profile inmates -- he claims there are going to be security measures in place that should keep his client safe. We're told R. Kelly will now be allowed 10 non-attorney visits instead of the previously allowed one. He'll also have a longer leash for phone calls and emails. Perhaps most important -- for R. Kelly it seems -- is the fresh air he'll be able to experience now with other prisoners during rec time. He'll get to hit the yard if he wants. Now, prosecutors confirmed R. Kelly was being moved to gen pop in a court filing of their own -- but added he was only in solitary briefly and at his request. In the docs, obtained by TMZ, state prosecutors say R. Kelly had previously asked to be placed in a secluded wing of the prison called the Special Housing Unit with no cellmates, at first. They say he eventually did get cellmates. Prosecutors his request to go back to gen pop was only made recently -- and add he's not been in true solitary for the last 3 weeks. (TMZ)

Spanish Olympic skier Blanca Fernandez Ochoa was found dead in the Guadarrama Mountains outside Madrid on Wednesday ... nearly 2 weeks after going missing. She was 56 years old. The 1992 bronze medalist was last seen on August 23 and was reported missing by her daughter ... sparking a massive search operation with drones, helicopters and volunteers to find the world-class athlete. There's a lot of questions about her death that have just not been answered yet -- including why she left home without her cell phone and credit cards ... and how she ended up at that location. We'll post more information as it becomes available. Fernandez Ochoa's abandoned Mercedes vehicle was found on Sunday ... and an off-duty officer found her body early Wednesday morning. Fernandez Ochoa competed in 4 Winter Olympics in the '80s and '90s ... becoming the first Spanish woman to take home a medal in the 1992 winter games in France when she won the bronze in the slalom. #RIP.
