Like, really dunzo
Last Summer we learned that the formerly happily married Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon separated and with each passing day, including the day that Nick got his massive Mariah tattoo covered up on his back, it looked like the couple were moving toward divorce. Today we learn that Nick has taken the intuitive and has filed for divorce from Mimi. TMZ has sniffed out that Nick quietly filed the divorce papers last month, well ahead of Mariah‘s negotiations for her new Las Vegas concert residency deal. So while he will likely get a pretty sweet settlement from the divorce, he won’t be getting any of the mega millions Mariah is being paid for her new Las Vegas show. More »

A completely unsubstantiated report
For the past few months, there have been RUMOR after RUMOR after RUMOR that Beyoncé and Jay Z are planning to end their marriage and through it all, the couple has refused to comment publicly on the reports, choosing instead to carry on with their $100 million dollar grossing On The Run Tour. Now that the tour is over, Us Weekly magazine is reviving the break-up rumors AGAIN with a cover story this week that claims Bey has had “ENOUGH” and is taking steps to divorce Jay Z. Of course, this information is completely unsubstantiated without any shred of proof but it’s a story that doesn’t appear to be going away any time soon. More »
Dunzo For Real
Early last month we learned the sad news that actress Jane Lynch and her wife Dr. Lara Embry split up after 3 years of marriage and today we learn that the couple are never, ever getting back together. Lynch filed for divorce from Embry this week citing “irreconcilable differences”. Sometimes when couples break up, particularly married couples, they find a way to work thru their differences and manage to salvage the relationship … clearly that was not the case here. It looks like Jane and Lara are truly dunzo for good :( More »

Homegirl is going after Child Support, too!
As In, Thirty MILLION Dollars
All divorces are sad, troubling experiences… at least in the beginning. Money can’t buy happiness, but it can afford you a really good therapist and an ish-load of chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream, both of which can be quite effective when working through most sad and troubling experiences. When Camille Grammer‘s divorce settlement with Kelsey Grammer is finalized (the two have been divorced since 2011), she’ll have a little bit of money with which to buy some of these important things… and by ‘a little bit’ I mean $30 million. Must be nice. The money part… not the divorce. Divorce sad. Money good. Deets inside!
Dunzo for REALS
Dang, well that was fast. Back in late June we learned that Katie Holmes filed for divorce from hubby Tom Cruise. In July, just over a week later, we learned that the couple reached an amicable divorce settlement. Today, just over a month later, we learn that the couple’s divorce is official. A judge in NY signed off on the couple’s divorce settlement this week and just like that … TomKat is dunzo for reals. More »

Nooo! Team Kelis!
Recently we got to see Nas‘s somewhat controversial new album cover. The rapper is pictured holding Kelis‘s wedding dress, which looks especially suspect above the words “Life Is Good.” But Kelis came forward and said she respected Nas as an artist, so we figured it was okay. Now Nas has gone and released a track off the upcoming album where he shares some intimate details about Kelis and their relationship. It’s interesting that he’s opening up on this album (he’s got another great song about his daughter, which I included on our list of Best Summer Songs… So Far), but I feel like he skipped a few important deets on Bye Baby. Take a listen inside and tell me if Nas‘s version of the story seems a bit skewed.
"The case has been settled"
Well that was fast. Less than two weeks after Katie Holmes stunned Tom Cruise with divorce papers after 5 years of marriage, Holmes‘s attorney has announced that a divorce settlement has been reached between the parties. As you may recall, Katie filed for divorce in the state of New York … she also made it clear that she was going after full custody of the couple’s only child Suri. Just a couple of days ago, we learned that the attorneys were working on a settlement — but I don’t think anyone expected the settlement to be made so quickly. The fact that a divorce settlement has been reached so quickly and that the settlement announcement is being made by Katie‘s attorney leads me to believe that she is getting exactly what she wants from this surprisingly quick divorce. Specifics about the settlement have not been made public but I am more convinced than ever that Katie Holmes is in control and she is getting everything that she wants from her split from Tom. Click below to read the official statement released by Katie‘s attorney Jonathan Wolfe and also read the joint official statement released by Katie and Tom. More »

Art Imitates Life?
Molly is a film co-written and co-produced by Katie Holmes who is, by the way, divorcing her husband Tom Cruise. In case ya missed it. While Molly makes for an interesting project (because Katie will be playing a single mother, as she becomes one herself), it’s one of a few new things the 33-year old actress has lined up. I’m not sure, but between this news and that Elle magazine shoot, it seems like things are really about to go down with Ms. Holmes! Deets inside.
