Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith have dealt with enough divorce rumours throughout the years.
And looks to me, Jada is getting tired of it.
“It seems like that happens at least once a year, or at least once every two years,” she said in the September issue of Essence.
“It’s rumored that we’re getting a divorce. But no. We’re not getting a divorce. Where am I gonna go? Where am I going to go?” she says of her 15-year marriage to Will. ”That’s my boo. It’s like he’s another part of me.”
But aside from defending her marriage, the actress mother of two has to deal with public scrutiny of her 11-year-old daughter Willow as she pursues a music career.
“How people feel about Willow is how people feel about Willow. But what I’m most concerned about is how Willow feels about herself. She’s an independent, courageous, genius, talented little girl. I’m happy for her, that she can just be who she is.”
But even though 40-year-old’s main priorities lie in the well-being of her children, it was Willow who recently made a discovery that changed her life.
After her daughter shared with the viral Kony 2012 video about child soldiers in Uganda, Pinkett Smith was driven to learn more about how she could help endangered children, specifically victims of sex trafficking.
Since then, she has urged Congress to fight trafficking, launched a website and met with victims.
“We’re all affected by this,” Pinkett Smith says. “And one woman is one woman too many. We have to extend beyond ourselves” to help those who’ve been enslaved.
And yet again, the Smiths prove they are the coolest family on the planet. Forget about the divorce rumours! Be like them and get educated about world issues!
Katie Holmes doesn’t want her six-year-old daughter Suri to get into Scientology, which is what led her to leave Tom Cruise.
“Katie just couldn’t take Tom and his whole Scientology worship anymore. She got sick and tired of being controlled not only by Tom but by the bizarre belief system of Scientology. She does not want Suri to be a Scientologist,” said a source to HollywoodLife.
Katie, now 33, didn’t mind his religious beliefs because she was reportedly so blinded by 49-year-old Tom’s charms at the beginning of their relationship
“When Katie first met Tom, she was really naive and smitten with him. But now that she is older and has more confidence, she is no longer willing to sacrifice her well-being and the well-being of her daughter. This divorce has been a long time coming. No one in their circles are surprised,” another source said.
While it’s never a happy occasion to see a couple break up, good for Kate! She should never do something she isn’t comfortable with…especially when it deals with a mysterious religion like Scientology.
And God forbid, a six-year-old shouldn’t be forced to believe in something at that age!
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are getting a divorce after five years of marriage.
“This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family,” says Holmes’s attorney Jonathan Wolfe to People. “Katie’s primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter’s best interest.”
Cruise’s rep on the other hand, said: ”Kate has filed for divorce and Tom is deeply saddened and is concentrating on his three children. Please allow them their privacy.”
The couple, who have been together since 2005, were very public with their relationship. Having been married since November 2006, Cruise and Holmes are also parents to six-year-old Suri.
This was Holmes’ first marriage and the third for Cruise, who was previously married to Mimi Rogers and Nicole Kidman, with whom he has two children.
I hate to see any couple break up. But in Hollywood unfortunately, the result seems to be inevitable.
Looks like one ugly dress was enough to end a marriage.
Last year, Britney Spears wore an ugly bridesmaid dress at her assistant Brett Miller’s wedding.
But a year later, the assistant’s husband has filed for divorce.
Though it isn’t clear whether the hideous dress is the cause, TMZ says Brett’s husband Frank Lionetti has filed a petition to end the marriage citing “irreconcilable differences.”
And since the marriage is ending, Frank wants spousal support and attorney’s fees from his estranged wife.
This has got to be one of the strangest stories from TMZ. Possibly even misleading. (But that’s probably old news)
I really doubt a dress could have caused a divorce. But if this is true, Brit’s assistant should have really rethought her choices in marrying.
Kris Humphries is “secretly demanding” his ex-wife Kim Kardashian for $7 million.
According to TMZ, the basketball player’s lawyer has given Kardashian an ultimatum: either pay up, or endure an ugly, public trial.
But Kardashian’s lawyers are playing it tough.
Considering that the marriage only lasted 72 days, the community property wouldn’t even be close to $7 million even if there wasn’t a pre-nuptial agreement.
But since there was a pre-nup, this means Kardashian owes Humphries nothing.
Though it’s not like Humphries didn’t make money off the marriage.
According to TMZ, he made around $ 1 million from the wedding and the TV special that showcased the nuptials. In addition, it was also said that he made somewhere between $250,000 and $300,000 for making appearances on the Kardashians’ reality show.
I honestly could care less about the short marriage, but I find it funny and ironic how TMZ reported that Humphries was “secretly demanding” his ex-wife for money and threatening an “ugly, public trial” if she doesn’t follow through.
Let’s face it. There are no secrets with the Kardashians. And seeing that this already out in the public, calling this a secret would be extremely redundant.
Come on! It’s the Kardashians for crying out loud.
A new leaked track by Katy Perry has hit the Internet, and Perry sings about falling for the wrong guy.
Katy co-wrote the song, and the track is a demo version of Jessie James track “Bullett.”
Some of the lyrics include, “My mama warned me about boys like you/ It’s the reason I wear these high-heeled boots/ And let me give you a little piece of advice/ My papa packs heat and he won’t think twice.”
On the sing-along refrain, Perry belts out, “I’m a bullet and I’m headed/ Straight for your heart/ Be careful what you start/ I’m a bullet and I’m headed/ Straight for your heart/ It’s gonna leave a mark.”
Although the song is a couple of years old, it has been coincidentally leaked right after Perry and Brand announced their separation.
Russell Brand and Katy Perry are getting divorced. Brand filed for divorce in Los Angeles, citing “irreconcilable differences,” according to TMZ.
As we reported earlier today, rumors have been swirling about the state of their marriage. However, sources were saying that although the couple were having problems, they were trying to work things out.
“Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage. I’ll always adore her and I know we’ll remain friends,” the 36-year-old Brit comedian told the Associated Press.
Rumors of their relationship troubles surfaced during the holidays when the couple were seen without their wedding rings.
Brand, who is starring in the upcoming Rock of Ages and Diablo Cody’s directorial debut and 27-year-old Perry wed October 2011 in India.
Russell Brand and Katy Perry are denying that divorce is in their future, however sources close to the couple confirm they are having some marriage problems.
TMZ reports a source says there was no big blowout argument, which was reported earlier.
One of our sources says it’s clear Katy and Russell are “dealing with something,” but divorce is not in the cards.
There are some new signs that Russell Brand and Katy Perry could be having some marriage problems. Rumors have been circulating for a while that the couple were separating.
Russell Brand was spotted in London not wearing his wedding ring. At the same time, Katy Perry has been spotted having a good time in Hawaii. Additionally, the couple didn’t even spend the holidays together.
To us, that’s pretty solid evidence that the two are having some serious problems, and things might be over. What do you think?
His lyric “Sugar, it’s going down” really rings true today.
TMZ has announced that Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz are officially divorced after three and a half years of marriage. According to the L.A. County Superior Court, their marriage was formally terminated on November 22.
No information has been released about the custody of their child, Bronx Mowgli, but it is rumoured that Simpson is requesting primary custody while Wentz is requesting joint. Wentz says that the split is a cause of the couple growing apart.
It seems that the Simpson sisters are not having much luck in the marriage department! Let’s just hope that Jessica’s soon-to-be marriage with NFL player Eric Johnson ends better than her marriage with singer Nick Lachey or Ashlee’s with Pete. I guess the third Simpson marriage is a charm?
Just two weeks before Demi confirmed her split from her young hubby, Ashton Kutcher, he bought her a 2012 Lexus.
According to TMZ, Ashton made one final attempt to save his marriage by picking out a eco-friendly car for his lovelorn lady. He spent over $100,000 on a 2012 Lexus LS 600h hybrid for Demi’s 49th birthday November 9.
CTV says there’s no confirmation on whether or not Demi accepted the gift or not. All we know is that she’s going through with the divorce. While Ashton made a last ditch effort to make amends, Demi’s not budging. In fact, sources say she’s planning on taking him down.
“She wants to punish him financially because of the way he has broken her heart. She is going to give him a bitter fight and, whether or not she wins, it will be an expensive lesson for him,” a source told CTV.
Demi’s going to go after Ashton’s money as a form of revenge. Pretty soon, he won’t be buying any fancy cars for anyone anymore.
A source close to Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher says the divorce was a long time coming. The source told Perez Hilton that the couple have been unhappy for quite a while.
“Ashton is unhappy; [Demi]‘s unhappy. It just got to a point where they had to end it. The fighting could get pretty intense. Whatever counseling they did was fine for a quick fix but could not get to the heart of the problem.”
Of course the root of the problem was Ashton Kutcher’s cheating, which has apparently been going on for a while. Considering that, it’s amazing they were able to last six years.
In light of his recent divorce announcement, Ashton’s gracing the December cover of Men’s Health. The Gossip Cop posted all the details.
The interview featured inside will now read as a tad outdated, as he talks about making relationships work, even offering dating advice to readers.
“I’m relatively scared of failure,” he tells the magazine. “But I just don’t see it as something that’s inevitable.”
For the magazine’s sister publication, Women’s Health, the 33-year-old actor answer’s was asked how he makes his marriage work.
“I think it’s all about working on the relationship and making it better … when it’s good. Don’t wait for a problem to work on things. The goal is not to get into a relationship; the goal is to be in a relationship.”
It sounds painful to read the article now, as Ashton and Demi are on the cusp of an official (and expensive) divorce. Fortunately for Men’s Health, the cover and interview were conducted months before anything ever happened between the couple, so no on should point the finger at the magazine. All we can do is called it really, really bad timing.
Although Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher haven’t officially filed for divorce since Demi’s announcement yesterday, the exes could potentially fight over who gets the $250 million of their combined fortune.
The Daily Mail explains the large sum may or may not be easy to divide, depending on if the couple signed a prenup when they wed in 2005. The site states: “If they didn’t – and if the divorce is filed in California – they can expect to split their assets 50/50″. $250 mil isn’t a bad number to split.
If there was no prenup, and if Ashton Kutcher was having an affair (rumoured to have cheated on Demi on their 6th wedding anniversary) it would not affect who gets what in terms of money settlement. Only if there was a signed prenup could Demi be eligible for more moolah from the newly appointed star of Two and a Half Men.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Moore is worth $10m more than Kutcher. This is mainly because she is much older than Kutcher and starred in a ton of big films in the early 90s. Another reason she’s worth more is because when her and Bruce Willis divorced in 2000, she pocketed $90 million. Not too shabby.
For the sake of both parties involved, let’s hope this divorce goes as smoothly as possible.
It’s official: Ashton Kutcher, 33, and Demi Moore, 49, have split.
Zac and Vanessa were one thing, but I may have officially lost all faith in love.
Ashton just tweeted this afternoon, “I will forever cherish the time I spent with Demi. Marriage is one of the most difficult things in the world and unfortunately sometimes they fail. Love and Light, AK”
She will be sure to have an awkward turn in changing her twitter alias from @MrsKutcher and she shared a few words earlier today.
“It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I have decided to end my six-year marriage to Ashton,” she said in a statement obtained by E! News.
“As a woman, a mother and a wife there are certain values and vows that I hold sacred, and it is in this spirit that I have chosen to move forward with my life. This is a trying time for me and my family, and so I would ask for the same compassion and privacy that you would give to anyone going through a similar situation.”
The situation has been admidst the headlines since Kutcher’s alleged affair in September, during a San Diego weekend bender. He must have alleged that Kutcher cheated on Moore with 23-year-old Sara Leal, after meeting her at a nightclub.
While the struggling duo went camping and to Kabbalah counseling behind the scenes—and most recently were reportedly trying to reignite the flames at Willis’ vacation home on Turks and Caicos, they have not made any public appearances together in months.
Based on her track record, from Bruce Willis to Kutcher, I’m officially offering my application for her next prowl.
Just when we thought we can’t take anymore of the Kardashians, SNL brilliantly spoofs the holier-than-thou Hollywood family.
SNL’s been on air since 1975 and certainly back then, they didn’t have reality shows to mock. One of the program’s stand-out actors, Kristin Wiig, does an incredible Kris Jenner impression. Relative new-comer Nasim Pedrad plays the role of a dumb, ditzy Kim , who turns his divorce signing with Kris Humphries into a televised spectacle dubbed Kim’s Fairytale Divorce.
“It’s been really hard. All week we’ve just been crying and crying and posing and crying and getting our anuses bleached,” Kim says to the camera.
The entire skit is hilarious, a real knock-out compared to other scenes from last week’s show hosted by Charlie Day that fell a little flat. Watch the clip Perez Hilton posted below.
Normal people hold vigils for outstanding people that have sadly passed away. But Kim Kardashian fans aren’t normal it appears.
One person posted an ad on Craigslist yesterday about holding a vigil outside the Dash store in Soho, New York to mourn Kim’s divorce. A surprisingly large group of people showed up, holding candles and posters and leaving their phone numbers for Kim on Post-its.
It seems people are taking the whole break-up harder than I thought. I’m just wondering, don’t these people have work? And why weren’t they holding a candlelit vigil for me when my ex dumped me? At least our relationship was longer than Kim’s actual marriage.
Below are photos of the peculiar event that were posted on Buzzfeed. Look out for a random appearance from a crime-solving canine.
The divorce of Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries was so 2 days ago… After a mere 72 days of marriage, everyone in their right mind is wondering if Kim’s marriage was simply a Just-for-TV special.
This morning Kim, along with Khloe & Lamar Odom, made an appearance at Hugo’s in Sydney, Australia for the new handbag collection. Kim appeared to have moved on from the brief spout with Humphries by continuing to promote the Kardashian goldmine in any way she can. It doesn’t hurt that brother Robert Kardashian, and mother Kris Jenner are also making good face time with their own endeavours.
The marriage came and went at the right time in terms of publicity if you ask me! The Kardashian Kollection Handbag launch in Australia, Kris Jenner comes out with a book, “Kourtney & Kim Take New York”‘s second season, and Robert Kardashian on “Dancing with the Stars”… If it wasn’t planned, the Kardashian brand has got some kind of powerful Magical Being that does infinitely better work than any PR company.
Despite it all, Kim felt it necessary to state on her blog that “[she] married for love”… I’m glad she clarified it for me, because I thought the sanctity of marriage was all about money and publicity.
Check out the video below:
Seeing as how the famous-for-not-doing-anything celebrity Kim Kardashian has a billion followers on Twitter, it’s not surprising that famous people would give their two cents on her recent divorce.
Rapper and entrepreneur Russell Simmons tweeted: “I hope the best for my friend Kim Kardashian and wish she finds peace and happiness.
DJ and Lindsay Lohan’s former lesbo lover Samantha Ronson tweeted: “Wait, so it was a real wedding?”
Douchebag of the century Spencer Pratt tweeted: “WIll Kim Kardashian make more money from the wedding storyline or the divorce? #hustler”
Outspoken comedian Kathy Griffin tweeted: “Ugh! Gay couples like Kim K and Kris H ruining the sanctity of marriage is the problem w the radical homosexual agenda – oh wait, oops ”
While it’s rude to bask in another person’s misery, whether the so-called misery is a publicity stunt or not, reading Kim K tweets has been today’s highlight. Keep ‘em coming, folks!
