Ewan McGregor Kisses Mary Elizabeth Winstead After Secret Split With Wife of 22 Years

Ewan McGregor is reportedly separated from his wife and appears to be romantically involved with his Fargo co-star Mary Elizabeth Winstead.

Photos of the actor kissing a woman who appears to be the actress, who plays his lover on the show, were published by The Sun on Sunday. The British newspaper said the pics were taken at a restaurant in the posh London neighborhood of St. John’s Wood. E! News has confirmed the location.

It quoted a fellow customer as saying, “They were deep in conversation and were there together for more than an hour. As they left she got on to the back of Ewan’s motorbike and they sped off together.”

Later on Sunday, People reported that McGregor and his wife Eve Mavrakis, split this past May after 22 years of marriage. That month, Winstead announced she has split from husband Riley Stearns after seven years of marriage. They have no children. McGregor and his wife are parents of four.

McGregor, Mavrakis and Winstead have not commented.

McGregor’s wife is also a former co-star; they met on the set of the British crime series Kavanagh QC in 1995. 

Earlier this month, McGregor and Winstead were spotted together showing PDA at a hotel and spa in the English countryside, about two hours outside London, a source told E! News exclusively.

The two arrived at the property in a helicopter, which landed on the front lawn, the source added.

Alycia Bella Hires a Professional Matchmaker and Tensions Are High at Asiah Collins’ House Party on The Platinum Life

What happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay there! 

Fresh off of their fun trip to Vegas, it looks like Crystal Smith and Asiah Collins haven’t completely put their past behind them. Even though they had a chat before the Jennifer Lopez concert, Asiah is still being a little bit shady when it comes to Crystal.

Especially when Asiah’s bestie Blanca starts stirring up some drama within the group. No one had to resort to using any physical means—this time. However, lines were definitely drawn and no one is a fan of “big booty Blanca” as La’Myia Good likes to call her. 

Alycia Bella is still trying to heal from her breakup and hires a matchmaker to help her find love again. It doesn’t go so well and she ends up getting set up with a guy who looks a lot like her ex. Awkward! 

La’Myia has plenty of issues of her own to deal with, like freaking out over doing her first post-baby photoshoot with her hubby Eric Bellinger and she’s feeling less than confident about her body. “I feel like I’m not at my best,” La’Myia reveals. “That’s got me feeling a little weird.” She’s able to overcome her doubts and have an epic photoshoot with her boo! 

See everything that happened on this week’s episode in the clip above!

DJ Khaled Threw His Son a 1st Birthday Party That’s Bigger and Better Than Any You’ll Ever Have

Welcome to the jungle—the baby jungle!

Let’s get real, DJ Khaled‘s son Asahd Khaled has had a charmed 12 months on this planet, so it’s no surprise to see that his first birthday was pretty extravagant, by any celeb standards. 

On Saturday, the major key music man threw a majorly lavish birthday bash for his 1-year-old and he pulled out all the stops, throwing the jungle-themed baby rager at Miami’s hottest nightclub, LIV at Fountainebleu Miami Beach. “Miami’s No. 1” nightclub was transformed into “dayclub” playground equipped with wild greenery, real tigers and check this: it was hosted by Sean “Diddy” Combs

Needless to say, this party was not messing around!

Oh but those aren’t the only wild thoughts happening at the wild party for the “baby mogul,” who basically stole the show at the 2017 VMAs in his $2K matching suit.

During the fete, which was presented by Tot Living by Haute Living, Asahd sat upon his throne as King of the Jungle. There were live dancers, who were dressed as jungle animals and a jungle-themed photo booth.

Oh and in case there were any on-the-go babies, there was an area called the “baby valet” station, where the kiddos could take a test drive and “drive” around in toy luxury automobiles.

Attendees included model Karolina Kurkovaher son, reality TV star Jonathan Cheban, Real Housewives of Miami star Lisa Hochstein, Fat Joe‘s wife Lorena Cartagena and daughter, the owner of LIV David Grutman, and more.

The guests and their kids partied the day away dancing in the jungle with the famous father-son duo, who donned matching outfits, as per usual.

Of course, the event wasn’t just about celebrating, it was also about giving back. Khaled asked that donations be made to UNICEF.

Fun fact: the lux party was thrown by the same wedding planner that threw Gucci Mane‘s headline-making wedding earlier in the week. Talk about a busy week!

The Walking Dead’s Season 8 Premiere Just Introduced a New Mystery and We’re Not Sure What to Make of It

Warning: The following contains spoilers about the season eight premiere of The Walking Dead. If you haven’t watched yet, you may want to bookmark this page and return once you have. Proceed with caution.

War has come to The Walking Dead.

After promising to take the fight to Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and the Saviors, Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and his coalition did just that in the season eight premiere, the show’s 100th episode. And this being TWD, it took an entire episode to get going, while we watched the combined members of Alexandria, the Hilltop and the Kingdom prepare for what will surely be the bloodiest battle this show has ever been. 

So yeah, it all went pretty much as expected: The team figured out how to steer a massive horde of walkers towards the Sanctuary, scumbag Gregory (Xander Berkeley) turned out to have ran to Negan once the Hilltop decided they liked how Maggie (Lauren Cohan) did things a bit better, the coalition shot out all the windows on the Sanctuary, making enough noise to lure the walkers right to it, and when Gabriel (Seth Gilliam) foolishly got out of his walker-proof car to save the weasel, Gregory left him for dead. That’ll teach you to never save a traitor.

The war has begun, but we’ll have to wait for next week to see how Negan retaliates now that he’s got Gabriel as leverage. (Because, let’s be real, he’s not dying just yet.) Until then, we’ll be sitting over here wondering what the hell was going on in those strange scenes peppered throughout the premiere with a much-older looking Rick. As teased in the first season eight promo, the premiere opened with Elder Rick waking up in a bed to the sounds of Weird Al Yankovic’s Queen parody, “Another One Rides the Bus.” (No, we’re not kidding.)

As we saw more of this interesting morning in Rick’s future, we learned Carl (Chandler Riggs) and Michonne (Danai Gurira) are living in the house with him and we met a considerably older Judith. (Seriously, she was about five and talking.) There was talk of a celebration, a giant owl had been erected in the community’s garden for the occasion, and we were seriously confused. Every time the show cut to one of these scenes, the moment began with a much younger Rick in what appeared to be in a terrified, exhausted state. Is this future just the fantasy of a man running out of time? Or is it something more?

Fans of the comic books may have some idea of where this is all heading. We won’t spoil it for you here on the off chance we’re right, but check out Vol. 22 of the series if you’re curious and don’t mind potentially being spoiled. (One hint: It’s not called “A New Beginning” for nothing.) And if you’re not interested in checking it out, we’ll be right here with you, piecing the clues together as season eight progresses.

While we wait for answers, let us know what you think is going on with those flash forwards in the comments below!

The Walking Dead airs Sundays at 9 p.m. on AMC.
