British pop star Rita Ora is a married woman. The 31-year-old singer married New Zealand filmmaker Taika Waititi, 47.

They reportedly tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in her native London, England.

Rita will not take her husband's last name. She will go by Rita Waititi-Ora.

A source told The Sun, Rita is planning "A big, showbiz-style bash to celebrate."

"Rita's already back in the studio working on her third album, with her latest session being with Ava Max and Noah Cyrus' writer Rollo," the source said.

The marriage surprised Rita's fans since she and Waititi became engaged in September 2021 after dating less than 6 months. They announced their engagement 2 months ago.

Fans are concerned about the age difference, and they fear Rita is moving too quickly into marriage with a much older man.

Waititi finalized his divorce from his wife of 11 years, Chelsea Winstanley, a few months ago. They share two daughters.

Waititi also dated New Zealand actress and writer Loren Horsley for 10 years until 2011.

New parents need a break! Moms and dads everywhere can sympathize with Rihanna and ASAP Rocky who are on a new sleep schedule thanks to their infant son.

The power couple was spotted on another 4 a.m. stroll in New York City without their new bundle of joy. The pop stars enjoyed a brisk walk through the park by the water in New York City, according to BACKGRID. Their photographer was also out at that hour and just happened to capture photos of them.

Thick and lovely Rihanna wore a sliced up button down shirt that gave fans a peek of her belly (is she wearing SKIMS?) She also wore a pair of ASAP's jeans, while ASAP rocked a black tactical vest, long sleeve white jersey with flowers on the sleeves and a curly wig.

Rihanna and A$AP Rocky couldn't sleep, so they went out for a late-night stroll in New York City at 4 a.m. while the city slept.

The couple who, welcomed their son in May, held hands as they stepped out and went to a local shop before strolling around Soho for awhile and heading home.

ROKA / BACKGRID

Rihanna, 34, wore black baggy pants and an oversized hoodie as she walked along the deserted streets with Rocky. In other pics, the "Umbrella" singer wore sunglasses, despite the late hour.

Friends say Rihanna is keeping Rocky close after several foreigners provided receipts that he slid into their DMs.

ROKA / BACKGRID

"Rocky’s been everything,” a source told HollywoodLife in June. "She's told her friends that she can't imagine doing this with anyone but him by his side, he's just so supportive and loving. Seeing him hold their son make her love him in a whole new way."

PapCulture / BACKGRID

Another source said, "Rihanna has seen whole different side of Rocky that she's never known. She's fallen even more in love with him since they welcomed their son into this world and she cherishes every moment of seeing Rocky and their son bonding."

Rihanna and Rocky dated on and off for years. She dumped him several times for cheating on her. So she is well aware of his philandering.

She probably thought that a baby would make him settle down. But that strategy didn't work for Ne-Yo, T.I., Sean Combs, and countless other promiscuous industry men.

Common's dating history includes Erykah Badu, Serena Williams, Jaguar Wright, Taraji P. Henson, and Angela Rye.

Common says he sought relationship advice from unlicensed therapist Michelle Obama.

He said the former First Lady told him to stop looking for that perfect woman because he's not perfect.

WENN.com

"One great thing that she told me was that you're not gonna get anybody that's perfect, because you're not perfect. So understand that there's some things that you will compromise in choosing that partner, but as long as the core values, that person marks off on that list, you're good."

Jay Ellis and Serbian actress Nina Senicar tied the knot on July 9 in Tuscany, Italy, Vogue reports.

Senicar, 36, stunned in a custom Dolce & Gabbana off-white, silk gown. The couple's 2-year-old daughter, Nora, was the flower girl.

The "Insecure" star revealed he felt a moment of panic, but it soon passed when he saw his bride-to-be.

"There was a moment when I was standing there in front of everyone waiting for the giant wrought iron gates to open and to see Nina but the moment kept going and going," the nervous groom told Vogue.

"So I yelled out 'Baby, you coming?' There was another beat or two after where Nina didn’t answer, so I turned to the crowd and said 'I guess that’s a no, there's a space up here if anybody wants to get married today,'" he joked.

"And in perfect timing as everyone laughed Nina yelled out, 'I'm coming baby!' Everyone laughed at us and then the gate opened and I was in awe when I saw Nina in her dress for the first time."

Ellis was called out last year for dating a Caucasian woman (Nina), whom he kept secret from his mostly Black female fans.

Jennifer Affleck took husband Ben Affleck's last name after their quickie wedding in Las Vegas on Saturday.

"We did it. Love is beautiful. Love is kind. And it turns out love is patient. Twenty years patient," she wrote in her "On The JLo" newsletter on Sunday. "We barely made it to the little white wedding chapel by midnight."

Today's modern women are appalled that Jennifer dropped her famous last name for the actor's name.

According to The Independent's writer Victoria Richards: "No woman should be changing her name after marriage in 2022."

Richards cited a law firm poll that shows the number of women who keep their surname alongside their husband's name rose 30 percent between 2021 and 2022.

"It's 2022," Richards wrote, "no woman should be giving up her own identity for that of her husband. We are not chattel."

Richards said she changed her last name when she got married in 2009. "But it never felt right. It never felt like "me". And how could it? I'd had my name, my identity, for 30 years. Yet overnight, I was expected to become someone else."

"It made no real sense at all: I was already a part of my (then) husband's family, so why did I need to give up the name that had carried me since birth? And so, I put it right (or, as I see it: righted a wrong). I changed my name back by deed poll for the paltry sum of £36 – and immediately felt like "me" again. I would urge every woman to do the same."

Dropping her husband's last name didn't affect Richards' marriage. They're still going strong.

Jordan married producer and filmmaker Datari Turner in 2009, but the marriage was later annulled.

After more failed relationships, she met and wooed Kendal Dismute, a real estate agent and former sergeant in the US Air force.

Just when her fans thought she'd met her match, Jordan found herself single again.

Jordan has appeared in music videos for Backstreet Boys, Ginuwine, Fabolous, Charlie Wilson, Joe, Chico DeBarge, D'Angelo, Coolio, Master P, Ludacris, and Kenny Lattimore.

Before they exchanged vows, Sam signed an "ironclad" prenup that protects the 40-year-old singer's $60 million fortune.

A source close to Britney confirmed the prenup to HollywoodLife and TMZ.

"Thank you to everyone who is concerned about the prenup," he wrote on his Instagram Stories. "Of course, we're getting an ironclad prenup to protect my Jeep and shoe collection in case she dumps me one day," he wrote, along with two crying-laughing emojis.

Steph Curry's dad, Dell Curry, went viral during Game 4 of the NBA Finals series between the Golden State Warriors and the Boston Celtics in Boston on Friday.

The TV camera panned to the stands where Dell was seen with his blushing girlfriend.

Screenshots of the couple went viral on social media, and fans speculated wildly that she is the ex-wife of Sonya Curry's current boyfriend, Steven Johnson.

Steph Curry's parents (pictured in 2019) accused each other of cheating throughout their 33-year marriage.

Sonya, 56, Filed for divorce on June 14, 2021, citing Dell's repeated infidelity and "marital misconduct."

Dell, 57, responded with a scandalous court filing of his own, accusing his estranged wife of "acts of illicit sexual misconduct" with Steve Johnson, a 6-ft-6 former NFL tight end who was roommates with Dell in college.

After filing for divorce, Sonya left Dell for good and moved in with Johnson last year.

Apparently, Dell found solace in the arms of Johnson's ex-wife.

Both couples attended Game 4 in Boston, and they may attend Game 5 of the NBA Finals in Oakland, California on Monday night.

The Warriors and Celtics are even at 2 games apiece in the series.

The viral images led to more speculation that the couple's eldest son, Steph, 34, and his wife, Ayesha, 33, have an open marriage.

Rumors ran rampant in December, after popular Instagram gossip blogger Deuxmoi received a strong tip that Steph and Ayesha had an open marriage.

"Have it on good authority that this well known NBA couple aren't as faithful in love as their social media and image make them out to be! They both have side hookups and flings but keep it very private to keep up the perfect family image they show to the world. I was shocked to learn, they've been together for so long."

A furious Ayesha checked a follower who commented on the rumor.

"But yet you still want an open relationship," the follower wrote. "If I were him you woulda been sent to the streets already [sic]."

"Don't believe everything you read," Ayesha replied curtly. "Do you know how ridiculous that is? Don't disrespect my marriage like that. Please and thank you."

Steph and Ayesha Curry renewed their vows in September after 10 years of marriage.

"It's everything I've always dreamed of but didn't know could be possible in this way. A moment I will never forget," Ayesha wrote on Instagram. "I love you @stephencurry30."

They share three children, daughters Riley, 9, and Ryan, 6, and a son named Canon, 3.

Britney Spears and her longtime boyfriend Sam Asghari tied the knot during a star-studded wedding ceremony at her Los Angles home on Thursday.

The ceremony was nearly ruined when Britney's first husband Jason Alexander tried to crash the wedding and was arrested for his troubles.

He live-streamed himself approaching the home. "She's my first wife, my only wife. I'm her first husband, I'm here to crash the wedding," he said.

Jason was charged with four misdemeanors and released on bond.

Britney and Jason were married for about 55 hours back in 2004. They grew up together in Kentwood, Louisiana.

Both Britney and Sam wore bespoke Versace designs for their intimate wedding. Britney's gown was designed by wedding guest Donatella Versace. The crisp white dress featured a front leg-slit and a 10-foot train.

Atelier Versace tailors toiled for 700 hours to complete the intricate design.

Versace tells PEOPLE the dress was, "Crafted in a delicate white silk cady, the design features a portrait neckline that wraps around the shoulders and comes together with a stream of pearl buttons. The seamline of the bodice follows the corset boning that narrows at the waist. The column silhouette is cut with a front leg-slit, while the back pleats from the waist cascade into a three-meter train."

"Designing Britney and Sam's wedding outfits came naturally to me," Donatella tells PEOPLE. "A tremendous amount of love was poured into every detail. Together with our Atelier, we created a gown and tuxedo that exudes elegance and glamour. They look just perfect together!"

Britney walked down the aisle to Elvis Presley's "Can't Help Falling in Love," sources tells PEOPLE. No one gave her away. Britney has been estranged from her father since before he stepped down as her conservator last year.

Other celebrity guests included Madonna, Paris Hilton, Selena Gomez, Drew Barrymore, Maria Menounos, and more.

The wedding comes a month after Britney lost the couple's first child during a miscarriage.

They announced their engagement late last year.

Ray J and his wife Princess Love have reunited after separating twice last year.

If you recall, Ray J announced their most recent separation in a post on Instagram last year.

Princess filed for divorce in May 2020, then withdrew her petition months later. Then Ray J filed for divorce in Sept. 2020 before withdrawing his petition. He filed for divorce again in October 2021.

An insider told Hollywood Life the couple decided to give their marriage another chance for the sake of their minor children.

"Ray J and Princess's friends and family were not surprised when everybody found out that they had gotten back together again. They have managed to maintain a really wonderful co-parenting relationship despite the ups and downs they've gone through over the years."

BACKGRID

We knew they would get back together after watching Princess appear as a guest on Trick Daddy's cooking show.

"Ray filed for divorce for the second time being petty," she told Trick. She added that she was a submissive wife who decorated the house for her man every holiday.

Madonna and rapper Tory Lanez sparked dating rumors after they were spotted attending a boxing match together in Brooklyn, NY on Saturday.

In one photo, Madonna and Tory hid behind a church fan at the WBA World Lightweight Championship title match between Gervonta Davis and Rolando Romero at the Barclays Center.

Madonna, 63, and Tory, 29, predicted Davis would win the fight.

Davis knocked out Romero in the sixth round of a match that boxing analysts say Davis was behind on every card.

Madonna also attended the fight with her adopted son David Banda. The teenager wore a red Adidas dress over a pair of shorts.

The Madonna-Tory dating rumors seem odd considering that Tory still owes Madonna royalties for a song he sampled without permission.

Cassy Athena/Getty Images

The Toronto native sampled Madonna's "Into the Groove" on the track "Pluto's Last Comet." Madonna slid into the comments of one of Tory Lanez's Instagram posts and accused him of using the sample without permission.

"Read your messages [for] illegal usage of my song get into the groove!" she wrote.

According to Spotify, Tory Lanez credited himself as the only songwriter on "Pluto's Last Comet."

"Into the Groove" was written by Madonna and Stephen Bray, and appeared on the soundtrack of her 1985 film Desperately Seeking Susan. The single also appeared on the reissue of her 1984 album Like a Virgin.
