“We remain dear and trusted friends and co-parents to our wonderful children Scarlett and Henry Lee. We feel so fortunate for the time we have shared and the time we will continue to spend both separately and together watching our children grow. In honor of that time shared, we are throwing a divorce party. An evening together in Nashville to re-affirm our friendship and celebrate the past and future with close friends and family.”
— I will never understand why celeb couples feel obligated to release public statements about their breakups. At least Karen Elson and Jack White are (amicably?) going out with a bang. Does a couple get to register for a divorce party, too? [Pitchfork] Keep reading »
Oh cruel world, say it ain’t so. Rumor has it that LeAnn Rimes made a sex tape. No, I’m not talking about those grainy security cam videos that showed her smooching Eddie Cibrian when they were both supposedly happily married to other people. LeAnn allegedly made a sex tape with her ex-husband, Dean Sheremet. According to Star Magazine, the tape was found in a moving truck—which, what? But when Dean was asked about it, he said that it was in the realm of possibility that a tape had been unearthed. “Things like this happen!” he said. “We were married for eight years. We did a lot of s**t!”
LeAnn, naturally, is in heavy denial mode. Keep reading »
“In the future I will be married, but for the time being I am happy as I am. I don’t need anything to confirm how happy I am … Whenever I see my picture in a magazine, I know what is being written. They all say that I spend my time organizing parties and that my boyfriend does not want to marry me and be with me anymore. My boyfriend has not given an interview on his private life since 1999. Everything that you read is just a rehash of stuff that has been written in the past.”
—Elisabetta Canalis, otherwise known as the girlfriend of George Clooney, talks to Chi magazine about how it feels to hear the press say her dude of two years is never going to marry her. She seems to have pretty good perspective on the matter. But as The NY Daily News points out, George has talked more recently about tying the knot. Earlier this year, he appeared on “Piers Morgan Tonight” and said, “I was married. So I gave it a shot. I’ve proven how good I was at it.” Yeah, that doesn’t sound too promising. Keep reading »
“My greatest mistake right now is, I’ve been clinging to my art. In that, I have victory for my art and a great loss for my heart. At the moment, my beautiful fiancee is no longer my beautiful fiancee. … Two halves don’t make a whole. Two wholes make a whole. In my relationship, I was giving myself away to make the relationship better, but in actuality, wasn’t doing better by doing that. I became less of a man. … We are still super friends, we go to yoga together, we surf together. We acknowledge the journey that each of us is on. We certainly want each of us to feel whole and complete. And it’s when you’re whole and complete that that attraction exists and it really thrives.”
– Jason Mraz, the singer behind “I’m Yours,” told The Daily Beast that Tristan Prettyman is no longer his fiancee. While it’s refreshing to see a famous person deviate from the robotic “We have made the mutual decision to end our relationship … please respect our privacy … we remain good friends” canned breakup statement, knowing that Mraz and his ex still do downward dog together and are all “shaka bra” or whatever is a bit overshare-y, no? I mean, are they sharing custody of their bong too? [The Daily Beast] Keep reading »

It appears that Jennifer Aniston may have a new dude in her life—one Mr. Justin Theroux. The two were first seen together in March, at the Chateau Marmont, having dinner with a group of friends. But more recently they have been spotted having dinner solo and even having a sleepover at Jen’s house. Us Weekly calls them “undercover lovers” and says they are “inseparable.” And a source told People this week that on May 27, Jennifer had a shindig for close friends like Courteney Cox and Chelsea Handler, and invited Justin too. “They all had a great time and enjoyed Justin’s company,” the source explained. “He’s edgier than the guys Jen usually dates.
