Brody Jenner Not Back With Kaitlynn Carter ... Just Co-Parenting Dogs

Exclusive

Brody Jenner and Kaitlynn Carter may SEEM like they're rekindling a lost romance, but they're not getting back together ... instead, they're just co-parenting pooches.

Here's the deal ... fans have noticed Brody and Kaitlynn lookin' pretty chummy recently -- BJ was the muscular hunk in the reflection of one of KC's snaps, and they both posted similar photos from the same beach -- but we've learned there's nothing brewing, other than a new dog in the mix.

Sources close to the famous exes tell TMZ ... Brody and Kaitlynn have hung out and bumped into each other a few times, but it's NOT a sign they're getting back together.

When Brody and Kaitlynn were "married" -- it was never a real marriage, there was a ceremony in Indonesia but they never made it legal -- they shared 3 dogs together ... Radar, Tank and Shoey.

Our sources say Brody and Kaitlynn had an agreement when they split ... he would take the dogs full time, and she had visiting rights.

We're told Kaitlynn adopted a new dog, Dash, a couple months ago and wanted to introduce the pup to the pooches she co-parents with Brody, so the exes set up a meet-and-greet for the dogs.

They all hit it off -- the dogs, not Brody and Kaitlynn -- freaking out and playing like good boys and girls.

Brody and Kaitlynn are getting along too ... we're told they said hello and were friendly when the bumped into each other at the beach in Malibu, in what sources say was not a scheduled hangout.

The exes are both moving on, but we're told there's no bad blood ... Brody was spotted quarantining with a UCSB grad and witnesses say Kaitlynn went on a date this week with Amber Heard's ex, Kristopher Brock.

Bottom line for Brody and Kaitlynn ... they'll continue to be in each other's lives because of their dogs and families, but that doesn't mean they're getting back together.

Megan Fox Ditches Wedding Ring During Promo ... But 'Green' is Still Her Family Name

Exclusive Details
NO MORE RING

Megan Fox appears to be putting out mixed messages about her relationship status with Brian Austin Green -- her wedding ring's gone, but she's hanging on to something else of his.

The actress made an appearance Wednesday on a live stream hosted by home decor guru, Colin Wayne, who's the CEO of Redline Steel ... which recently partnered with Megan to plug their company and this $2 million Memorial Day giveaway she was hired to promote.

Her online gig was quite telling ... for a couple reasons.

For one, Megan wasn't wearing a wedding ring on camera -- mind you, this chat went down very shortly after Machine Gun Kelly released his new music video, which shows Megan and MGK in intimate scenes. Colin even congratulated her on it.

Reality is, Megan hasn't been wearing her ring for at least a week or two, and ditto for Brian. The weirder moment came when Colin asked her to show off some of her own Redline goodies ... so, she picked up a custom family tree with "GREEN" stenciled at the bottom.

FEELIN' DISTANT

MF referred to it as her "family name" -- going on to add that she's got one with her kids' names carved in it too. It was kind of an awkward moment, considering BAG himself all but confirmed they're dunzo just 24 hours earlier.

She probably ordered those trinkets in better times, but, at least publicly, Megan's not disavowing her estranged husband's last name. Not yet, anyway.

We'll just call this a hopeful sign their break-up will be as amicable as Brian's making it seem.

'Bachelor' Star Peter Weber Splits From Madi P. She Hangs with Selena Gomez Post-Break Up!!!

Breaking News

"The Bachelor" star Peter Weber learned the hard way mama knows best -- she was never a fan of Madison Prewett and now Madi's a goner cause the couple is dunzo.

Madi and Peter revealed the split Thursday night ... just 2 days after an incredibly tense and awkward "After the Final Rose" finale where Peter's mom, Barbara, let it be known in not so friendly terms ... she's never gonna get on board with the relationship.

Madi, who initially tagged the wrong Pilot Pete account in her Instagram breakup post, said she and Peter decided to go separate ways but never elaborated.

Didn't seem to bother Madi all that much, at least on the surface, because moments after announcing her breakup she was seen partying --  yes, hanging at Target can constitute as partying -- with none other than Selena Gomez.

GAME NIGHT!!!

As for Peter, he seems to be taking this all in stride too. He said, "Madi and I have mutually decided to not pursue our relationship any further. Believe me this was not easy for either of us to be ok with, but after a lot of honest conversations, we have agreed that this is what makes most sense for the two of us."

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

BTW ... Peter's mom celebrated the breakup by posting video of her and two friends singing, "Leaving on a Jet Plane." BURN!!!

Amanda Bynes Calls Off Engagement ... To Fiance of 3 Weeks

Breaking News

Amanda Bynes won't be walking down the aisle after all -- she and her fiance of just 3 weeks have called off their engagement.

AB's groom-to-be, Paul Michael, confirmed the news Sunday ... telling In Touch they had, in fact, broken up. He added he still loves Amanda, though, and considers her his best friend.

Word of their split comes after Amanda recently cleared her social media pages of any photos of her and Paul together, which led some to believe they'd parted ways. She hasn't spoken on the split herself yet, and the reason for things coming undone remains unclear.

Of course, as we first told you, Amanda's family wasn't going to let it happen in the first place -- so the writing might've been on the wall for this from the get. Her mother is her conservator, and Amanda can't do something like getting hitched without her conservator's consent. We'd been told her family felt it simply wasn't in her best interest.

We came to learn that the engagement ring Amanda was flashing all over the Internet was actually purchased off of Amazon, for a measly $49. No real diamond, either.

Still, Amanda seemed pretty smitten with Paul -- whom she'd met in AA classes, and had only been dating for a few months before he popped the question. She even filmed a video with him and introduced him to the world as the "best person on the face of the Earth."

MEET MY FIANCÉ

We were told by sources close to her family that Amanda had a boyfriend right before Paul, and they felt he was simply a rebound. On to the next, it seems.

Jeff Garlin Women Should Always Win Divorce ... Setting My Ex Up For Life

Exclusive
GIRL'S RULE
All's Fair Podcast

Jeff Garlin thinks women should always come out on top in divorces ... and he says he's gonna put his money where his mouth is.

"The Goldbergs" and "Curb Your Enthusiasm" star opens up on his own divorce on Laura Wasser's 'All's Fair' podcast ... telling the Disso Queen he's nearing the end of an amicable split with his estranged wife, Marla.

As we reported ... Jeff filed for divorce back in September 2018 after nearly 25 years of marriage.

Jeff says he's still madly in love with Marla, and even though they don't want to be with each other anymore, he's going to make sure she's taken care of for the rest of her days.

Jeff's reasoning for not nickel-and-diming his ex -- the stress just ain't worth it, and he's got tons of female friends with horror stories about greedy ex-husbands.

Bottom line for Jeff ... women are better than men, and they should always win the divorce, even when the wife is the breadwinner.

Josie Canseco Splits From Logan ... But Not Because of Tana

Exclusive

Josie Canseco is back in the single lane ... she and Logan Paul broke up after about a month of dating, but not because of his "date" with his brother's ex, Tana Mongeau.

Sources close to the former couple tell TMZ ... Josie and Logan called it quits about a week ago, this after she completely stopped talking to him. Guys aren't the only ones who ghost.

It was a pretty short relationship ... as we first told you, Josie and Logan only started dating last month after years of running in the same friend circles.

Logan and Tana raised eyebrows this week by going on a very visible "date" in Los Angeles, but our sources say Jake Paul's ex is NOT the reason Josie stopped talking to Logan.

We're told Josie and Logan broke things off BEFORE photos of him with Tana surfaced, so she's no home-wrecker.

Our sources say Josie is telling friends Logan just wasn't the one for her, and she worries he simply used her for publicity. We're told Josie knows about Logan's photos with Tana and feels they are just hanging out as a publicity stunt and aren't actually into each other.

Josie's hunch about Logan and Tana is correct ... they just admitted the whole thing is a ruse. Expert trolls, those two. Remember her fake marriage to Jake?!?

Now, Logan joins a growing list of Josie's famous exes, along with Brody Jenner and Mike Stud.

Exclusive

Jenna Dewan is looking to erase all traces of Channing Tatum after their divorce ... because she's asking a court to go back to her maiden name.

In the eyes of the law, Jenna is known as Jenna Tatum ... but according to new legal docs obtained by TMZ, she wants to have her legal name restored to Jenna Dewan.

We broke the story ... Jenna and Channing finalized their divorce and became legally single back in November ... but their settlement didn't include anything about a name change for Jenna.

The exes are moving on from each other in more ways than one ... as we reported, Jenna recently moved into a new house with her boyfriend and baby daddy, Steve Kazee, and Channing is back together with his former flame, Jessie J, and the reconciliation is Instagram official.

There's still a few balls in the air as far as the divorce is concerned ... Jenna and Channing are locked in a nasty custody battle and are hashing out a property settlement agreement.

Jessica Simpson Tony Romo Dumped Me Over John Mayer Cheating Suspicion

Breaking News

Jessica Simpson claims Tony Romo broke up with her back in 2009 because he thought she was cheating on him with John Mayer.

Simpson spells out the whole thing in her new book "Open Book" -- in which she finally breaks her silence on the demise of her 2-year relationship with the former Dallas Cowboys QB. Long story short, Simpson claims she ran into Mayer at her parents house and didn't tell Romo, but he eventually found out through an email from John to Jess.

"[Tony] accused me of seeing John behind his back. I hadn’t cheated on Tony at all, but I could not lie and say I hadn’t even seen him," Simpson said.

Jessica told Tony "nothing happened" ... but Romo didn't buy her story because ... well, John Mayer.

"Tony didn’t believe that for a second. And within that second, he broke up with me right there. Two years, gone with an email."

Simpson says she knew Romo wouldn't blab to the media about the real reason for the split because "it would imply that he wasn't enough for me."

Jessica says eventually "Tony soon realized I was telling the truth. Of course I didn’t cheat on him."

"But our breakup had been so ugly that it shocked me into realizing it had been necessary."

As for Mayer, Jessica claims the musician made a full-court press to put a ring on it.

"[John] had said all these things, practically asking my parents for my hand in marriage while I was in a serious relationship. Swearing to me up and down that he was a changed man."

"Now here I was, ready to pledge my love back, and to kiss him as the curtain came down. And it fell on my head ... All this time, all those years, he was breaking up with me to torture himself enough to get good material."

In other words, Jessica was convinced John just wanted to try to be with her so he could get content for his music.

"It felt inevitable to be in love with John, so I continued talking to him for months. But I knew now not to let him get close enough to shoot me down again."

Everyone ultimately moved on with their lives ... Jessica married ex-NFL tight end Eric Johnson. Romo married beauty queen Candice Crawford.

And Mayer moved on to, Taylor Swift, Jennifer Aniston and Katy Perry. But he's currently single.

Fun Fact -- Jessica famously bought Tony Romo a $100,000 boat as a birthday present before they broke up ... but told TMZ at the time she wasn't going to ask for it back!

Rihanna Hangin' With A$AP Rocky Post-Split ... Been Together A Lot Lately

1:25 PM PT -- K. Michelle is no stranger to breakups, and she had just about the most perfect advice for  RiRi on the heels of her own.

PLENTY OF FISH IN THE SEA
TMZ.com

We got the 'Love & Hip Hop' star Saturday and asked if she had any words of wisdom for Rihanna after breaking it off with Hassan Jameel. She definitely did, and her tip is basically this ... men are a dime a dozen, and she can get another one literally anywhere.

She's not wrong, but you gotta hear the places KM picks for Rihanna to find a new love. Oddly specific, and absolutely hilarious.

Rihanna is all smiles after news broke of her breakup with her billionaire businessman BF -- putting on a happy face alongside A$AP Rocky, who's been a loyal companion these days.

RiRi and Rocky were hanging out backstage Friday during the 2020 Yams Day benefit concert in Brooklyn, where the A$AP Mob performed for the fifth annual charity event ... which kicks cash to the Always Strive and Prosper Foundation to help fight substance abuse.

The two superstars seemed pretty chummy, laughing it up and looking super caj with a backdrop of artwork behind 'em. At first glance, you'd think there's nothing to this. However, there's been some speculation recently that something more could be afoot here.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

Fact is, Rihanna's been around A$AP quite a bit over the past few months or so -- which seems to have gone somewhat under the radar. She went to Sweden last month to check out his comeback show -- granted, she wasn't seen in his company. At least not here.

Rihanna's love life is in a hopeless place -- she and Hassan Jameel have pulled the plug on their relationship.

Rihanna started dating Jameel back in 2017, and since then she's been crowned the wealthiest female entertainer in the world with an estimated fortune of about $600 million. Hassan's family, meanwhile, is worth an estimated $2.2 billion.

The now exes had plenty of fun while the good times were rolling. Some of our fave moments include seeing them take in LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers from a Staples Center private box, and floating around the crystal blue waters of Positano in a fancy yacht.

She cited irreconcilable differences in her divorce docs, and requested spousal support. They don't have kids together, so no child support issues.

Now, it's unclear if Shanina got what she requested -- we know they had a prenup, but the terms of their settlement are being kept under wraps.
