• Engaged: George Lucas, 68, and Mellody Hobson, 43, his rep confirmed to the Hollywood Reporter. He’s the billionaire brains behind the “Star Wars” franchise, but she seems pretty secure, too — a financier and president of the $3 billion Ariel Investments who was recently named chairwoman of the board of DreamWorks Animation; she’s also a top Obama fundraiser. Second marriage for him (he was divorced in 1983), and first for her.

• Engaged: Phil Jackson, 67, and Jeanie Buss, 51, cementing one of the most complicated relationships in professional sports. She’s the daughter of the owner of the Los Angeles Lakers (and an exec VP with the organization), while he’s their former coach, recently in the running to be rehired but passed over. And! They’ve been dating for 13 years. Read more at The Early Lead.
