It's official! Allison Janney finally confirmed rumors that her Mom costar Anna Faris is engaged to Michael Barrett. "I know she's been engaged for a long time," the Bombshell star, 60, told Us Weekly exclusively during the Troop Zero premiere at Pacific Theaters at The Grove in Los Angeles on Monday, January 13. "I kept it very quiet, I'll have you know! So, I celebrated with them a long time ago." Janney explained that she had no idea Barrett, 49, planned on proposing to Faris, 43, but she is excited about their next chapter. "I didn't know he was going to propose, but I saw the ring one day," she told Us. "I went into her room to work on lines [for the show], and then I was like, 'What is that ring on your finger?' ... I think she was waiting for everyone to notice. 'Oh, that's it,' and then ... yeah, it was fun." The Scary Movie star sparked engagement speculation in November 2019 after she was spotted wearing a diamond ring during a stroll around Los Angeles with the Ted cinematographer. Days later, Faris seemed to confirm the news when a photographer congratulated her and she simply responded, "Thank you!" Faris and Barrett were first spotted together in October 2017, two months after she and Chris Pratt announced that they had called it quits on their eight-year marriage. "They are a great match," a source told Us in March 2018 of the actress and her beau. "All of her friends love him. He's so down-to-earth, stable and obsessed with Anna. Michael is great with [her son, Jack], and that's all Anna cares about. They are doing so well." Faris was previously married to her Lovers Lane costar Ben Indra from 2004 to 2008 and her Take Me Home Tonight cast mate Pratt from 2009 to 2018. She and the Guardians of the Galaxy star, 40, welcomed their now-7-year-old son in 2012. After their divorce, Pratt moved on with Katherine Schwarzenegger, whom he wed in June 2019. (US Weekly)

Jessica Biel Is 'Still Upset' With Justin Timberlake Following His PDA Photo Scandal. The new normal? Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake are trying to focus on their family following the "Man of the Woods" singer's PDA scandal in November. The 7th Heaven alum, 37, is "still upset with Justin," who was photographed getting cozy with his costar in New Orleans, a source tells Us Weekly exclusively. "He has been making big promises and not sticking to them as much as she thinks he can and should," the source adds. "He promised that he would be more involved with their family and she doesn't feel like he's doing that." But another source close to the couple tells Us that "Jessica and Justin are not in a tense place at all." The pair, who were spotted in public together on Wednesday, January 8, for the first time since the scandal broke, have been making their relationship a priority after the singer, 38, was photographed holding hands with his Palmer costar Alisha Wainwright in New Orleans two months ago. Following the holidays, The Sinner actress and "Sexyback" singer reconnected with a staycation, Us reported on Saturday, January, 11. They spent time together with their 4-year-old son, Silas, at the Hotel Bel-Air in Los Angeles. "They had lunch at Wolfgang Puck at the hotel earlier in the week," a source told Us. "They also had dinner there with friends the other night." The insider revealed that the duo "kept to themselves" while dining out. "Justin had his attention focused on Jessica." Despite working on their relationship in the wake of the Trolls actor's indiscretion, a source told Us on January 3, that Biel is "still not happy about the situation, but they're OK as of now." In December, the "Can't Stop the Feeling" issued a public apology to Biel via Instagram, calling his actions "a strong lapse in judgement," and a source told Us that the pair was "focused on mending any issues in their relationship." "Jessica is still in a place where she's very hurt and upset with Justin," the source said at the time. "She hasn't fully forgiven him and isn't letting him off easy." In wake of the scandal, which included Wainwright, 32, being photographed with her hand on Timberlake's knee while they were out for drinks on November 21, Us confirmed that the costars are "just friends." Meanwhile, on December 11, an insider told Us that Biel believed her husband's behavior was "completely inappropriate" and she was "very upset and embarrassed" by the whole thing. Biel and Timberlake wed in 2012 and welcomed their son in 2015. (UsMagazine)

Channing Tatum and Jessie J Reunite in L.A. One Month After Split. Are Channing Tatum and Jessie J giving things another shot? A source tells E! News that the former couple, who split almost a month ago, were spotted together over the weekend in Los Angeles. We're told the Magic Mike star and British pop singer spent about 30 minutes perusing the children's section of high-end home furnishing store Restoration Hardware on Sunday afternoon. "They were both dressed down in sweats and trying to be low-key," the source says. "No PDA but both were in great moods and together the whole time while giving their opinions on different items." It's entirely possible, however, that Channing and Jessie were simply out as friends. At the time of their breakup, a source confirmed to E! News that they remained close. What's more, Channing is even dipping his toes back in the dating game on members-only apps like Raya. "He's been on Raya for a few weeks," a separate insider previously shared. "He would love to be dating someone and is not shy about it. He wants to have fun again and he doesn't care if he meets someone online, a set up or just walking down the street." Regardless, if Jessie and Channing are in fact back together, fans shouldn't expect a grand public display of affection confirming their reconciliation. The "Flashlight" songstress recently shut down one outlet after it falsely speculated on the reason behind a cryptic social media post that Jessie shared. "The songstress got REAL about her best friend she lost this time last year," she shot back, referencing the death of her close friend and bodyguard. "Lying isn't journalism. They taught you that right?" Neither star has ever discussed their split publicly. E! News has reached out to Channing and Jessie's camps for comment. (Eonline)

Charlie Hunnam Is Very "Indifferent" Abut Marriage Despite His Girlfriend's Eagerness. Do we hear wedding bells? On Monday, Charlie Hunnam sat down with SiriusXM and revealed if he and longtime love Morgana McNelis are gearing up to tie the knot. Joined by his The Gentlemen co-stars Hugh Grant and Matthew McConaughey, the Sons of Anarchy alum declared himself "indifferent" towards the idea of marrying his girlfriend of over 13 years. "[I'm] sort of indifferent," he said. "She does not say the same. She's very eager to get married. Yeah, so, I'll do it because it's important to her, but I don't have any great romantic feelings towards it." Chiming in, Grant joked, "I wouldn't go with that line when you pop the question." Hunnam's feelings towards marriage are understandable being that he was married once before and it "didn't turn out that well," according to the Pacific Rim star. In 1999, he wed actress Katharine Towne in Las Vegas when he was 18 after a brief-yet-whirlwind courtship. For an interview with The AP, he returned to Sin City years later and recalled the motivations behind the couple's decision to get married. "The first time I was ever in Vegas, I got married, which didn't turn out that well," he told the outlet (via The Daily Mail.) "I'd known the girl for three weeks and we'd fallen madly in love." He continued, "We thought, 'What if we never see each other again? Let's get married and we'll have to see each other again even if it's just to get divorced.'" Unfortunately, it wasn't as simple as Hunnam had envisioned. They eventually called it quits and he referred to the marriage as "three terrible, painful, expensive years." In the past, Hunnam and McNellis have sparked wedding rumors. Back in 2017, the British actor rocked a gold ring on his ring finger at CinemaCon, which he assured E! News' Marc Malkin was just a thoughtful gift from his jewelry designer girlfriend. "It's a rather beautiful ring and it does just so happen only to fit on that finger," he told E! News on the red carpet. "So, I'm not sure if that was a subtle or not-so subtle hint, but she gave me the ring." He added, "I mean, I'm essentially married. I've been together with my girl for over 12 years. That's pretty much marriage, right?" During his SiriusXM visit, McConaughey, who just turned the big 5-0, offered the soon-to-be 40-year-old actor some advice about what's to come when he reaches the milestone. "40s are a man's best decade," the Dallas Buyers Club star said. "I think the 30s are... about process of elimination. You get rid of those things that don't really pay you back. And then the 40s, you begin to customize and you start to double down on the things that do pay you back. It was my favorite decade by far." For Grant, however, he quipped that every decade has maintained the same level of "disgust" for him. "I've never enjoyed any decade particularly," the 59-year-old told his castmates. "But, I have high hopes for the 60s... who knows what's gonna come." Watch Hunnam, Grant and McConaughey in The Gentleman when it hits theaters January 24. (Eonline)

Pete Davidson and Kaia Gerber's Relationship Is 'Cooling Off' as He Prioritizes His Mental Health. Kaia Gerber and Pete Davidson are at a crossroads in their relationship. With the New Year in full swing, it appears the Saturday Night Live star is making his mental health a priority in 2020. A source tells E! News Pete is "taking a break to work on his mental health," which means his relationship with the model is moving to the back-burner. According to the insider, "It became very clear that he had to go and do this and couldn't wait any longer. This is his second time seeking treatment, his first being in 2016. News of his decision to seek help comes after his girlfriend's parents Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber intervened in their relationship. Around the holidays, the famous celebs were spotted in an intense conversation outside of their daughter's New York City apartment, which Pete was later spotted leaving. At the time, a source explained to E! News Cindy and Rande were trying to "guide [Kaia] and to help Pete through a difficult time." Days after their tense discussion was shared with the world, Pete went on SNL to reveal he was "going on 'vacation' but insurance pays for some of it, and they take your phone and shoelaces." Despite Pete's jovial nature, viewers understood this to mean he was going to enter rehab, as he's an open-book when it comes to his mental health. Since then, Kaia, Cindy and Rande have returned to Los Angeles, with no further sightings of Kaia and Pete. It's unclear what role, if any, they played in Pete's choice to prioritize his well-being, but now that he's getting the help he needs, the entire family seems to be taking a step back from the situation, including Kaia. A second source reveals Pete is in "a program," which has made it so he and Kaia "haven't had a lot of contact." Moreover, the same insider says Kaia "doesn't know if she wants to continue in their relationship," especially since she "wasn't comfortable with what she saw and doesn't know if she can handle it." "What she saw happen with Pete was very concerning and scary for her... She cares about Pete and wants him to get better," the insider explains. "But their future is very much up in the air." A third source says Pete "understands" how Kaia feels and "knows he needs to focus on his mental health, especially because he has many work commitments coming up." Whether they call it quits or not, the third insider says there's "no bad blood between the two." E! News has reached out to their reps for comment. (Eonline)

Dot tells TMZ ... she recently underwent emergency heart surgery after experiencing a severe burning sensation in her chest area that proved to be a much more serious condition than doctors initially figured.

Tragic news in the Washington Nationals organization ... one of their up-and-coming pitching prospects died Sunday reportedly after a motorcycle crash in the Dominican Republic. Fausto Segura -- a 6-foot-3 right hander who signed with the Nats back in 2017 -- was allegedly driving his motorcycle when he was struck by a van, ESPN Deportes said. Segura was reportedly visiting his hometown of Barahona at the time of the accident. He was 23 years old. "The Washington Nationals are extremely saddened to learn of the tragic passing of Fausto Segura," the team said in a statement Monday. "He was beloved by his teammates, coaches, coordinators and everyone he came in contact with throughout our organization." Segura pitched in the Nationals' farm system the past three seasons ... and showed some upside, according to assistant general manager of international operations Johnny DiPuglia. "He was starting to take off," DiPuglia said of Segura. "We were excited about him. But the thing we were most excited about him was how his maturation had improved." "So that's the sad thing. The kid was starting to figure some things out, and then this happens." The Nationals added in a statement, "We extend our deepest sympathies to Fausto's family, friends and loved ones in their time of grief." (TMZ)
