Blind Item: Which Hollywood Marriage Is Really A Sketchy Business Arrangement?
Happy Hump Day! Let’s speculate about another wild rumor, shall we? This one via BuzzFoto:
If this is true, it’s just plain crazy. We hear that this ‘married couple’ is involved in more of a business arrangement than a romance. It’s not that unusual, since people have been using marriage for many things throughout history. We just think it’s sad there are actual transactions involved here – the monetary kind, trust us, not the sexual kind. One of the partners is paying the other a hefty stipend as an incentive to stay hitched. The receiving partner needs the money because of a drug habit and gambling issues and the other is inclined to give it to fight off rumors of sexuality/bad past/unattractiveness. Both in the relationship are celebrities, both have been up against speculation, and both are all about the PR to keep the ball rolling on their different needs being fulfilled by the marriage. Not Katie and Tom.
My first guess was Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban, because he did have a drinking problem (and gambling? I can’t remember), she’s been rumored to be a lesbian and, what with the Botox forehead, clearly is concerned about her looks. But that may be too obvious. So here are a few others: Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck? Meh. Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith? I think that’s a little warmer. How about Fergie and Josh Duhamel? She is definitely richer than he is, and he does seem to spend a lot of time in Vegas.
