Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are engaged to be married, a rep for Pitt confirms in a statement. “Yes, it’s confirmed. It is a promise for the future and their kids are very happy. There’s no date set at this time,” the rep says. And Pitt reportedly popped the question with a $250,000 ring that was a long time in the making, according to Us Weekly.

“Brad had a specific vision for this ring, which he realized over a yearlong collaboration with Robert [Procop],” says the jeweler in a statement. “He wanted every aspect of it to be perfect, so Robert was able to locate a diamond of the finest quality and cut it to an exact custom size and shape to suite Angelina’s hand.”

Though she describes her split from ex-husband Ryan Reynolds as “comically amicable,” Scarlett Johansson admits she’s still reeling from her divorce. “Of course it’s horrible. It was devastating. It really throws you,” she tells Vogue. ‘You think that your life is going to be one way, and then, for various reasons or whatever, it doesn’t work out.” Johansson also acknowledges her post-divorce relationship with Sean Penn for the first time, saying, “We spent time together, yeah. I never put a title on it, really, but we were seeing each other.”

Less than two weeks after being arrested for driving under the influence after hitting up the L.A. club scene, Amanda Bynes was back out partying — and behind the wheel, according to TMZ. The actress was spotted driving herself to the Chateau Marmont and nightclub Greystone Manor, where she was spotted texting behind the wheel before backing her car up onto a curb.

Jada Pinkett Smith isn’t bothered by the tabloid reports of trouble in her marriage to Will Smith — or at least she isn’t surprised by them. “Every year, one celebrity couple is under the microscope. This year, unluckily, it’s us. I almost want to say that we should have been expecting it,” she tells Gala magazine. “Will and I know the truth. We’re waiting peacefully for the storm to blow over.”

A 30-year-old man has been arrested for trespassing at Sean “Diddy” Combs’ New York-area mansion, where he reportedly ate the hip-hop mogul’s food and tried on some of his clothes, according to Hollyscoop. Quamine Taylor entered the vacant house through an unlocked basement door and was there for 24 hours before tripping an alarm. But when police and an alarm company representative showed up, Taylor was able to convince them he had permission to be there. It wasn’t until a caretaker arrived and called the police back that Taylor was arrested. Combs’ rep had no comment.

Eligible bachelor and NFL quarterback Tim Tebow has been linked to a number of famous women in the press, from Taylor Swift to Katy Perry, but he’s not bothered by the gossip. “It’s funny, because half the rumors, I’ve never even met the people,” he says in an interview with ‘Good Morning America.’ “I’m sure they would be lovely.”
