First Ben and Jen, then Blake and Miranda...now this. Gwen Stefani has filed for divorce from Gavin Rossdale after 13 years of marriage and three kids. In statement, the couple says, "While the two of us have come to the mutual decision that we will no longer be partners in marriage, we remain partners in parenthood and are committed to jointly raising our three sons in a happy and healthy environment. To that end, we respectfully request privacy from the media during this time." Stefani filed initially, citing "irreconcilable differences." She asked for joint custody and that Rossdale not be awarded spousal support. Tipping off that it was a a mutual decision was that Rossdale shortly thereafter filed his own petition, similarly seeking joint custody. The couple does not have a prenuptial agreement and will be subject to California's community property laws, meaning they will split their assets in half. Stefani reportedly has an $80 million fortune, while Rossdale brings $35 million to the table.
Will Smith took to Facebook yesterday to deny a RadarOnline report that he and his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, were in the process of ending their marriage of 17 years. "Under normal circumstances, I don't usually respond to foolishness. (Because it's contagious)," he wrote late Monday. "But, so many people have extended me their "deepest condolences" that I figured - 'What the hell... I can be foolish, too!' So, in the interest of redundant, repetitious, over & over-again-ness... Jada and I are...NOT GETTING A DIVORCE!...I promise you all - if I ever decide to divorce my Queen - I SWEAR I'll tell you myself!" The couple are constantly said to be in turmoil for various reasons, but Pinkett Smith addressed Will's rumored unfaithfulness during an interview with Howard Stern in June. "You've got to trust who you're with," she said. "And at the end of the day, I'm not here to be anybody's watcher. I'm not his watcher. He's a grown man."

Well this pretty sick. Bobbi Kristina Brown's death photo has reportedly been sold to a tabloid for over $100,000. Don’t know which publication bought the photo that was secretly taken of Brown in a coffin, but supposedly it was snapped at her viewing on Friday. While the person responsible for taking the photo has not been identified, TMZ reports that the Brown and Houston families are blaming each other for the pic. Last month, a photo of Brown in her bed at an Atlanta-area hospice center was being shopped around to media. The photo was said to have been taken by one of her extended family members. The person who took that photo was never publicly identified, and it's not clear whether the Brown and Houston families suspect that same individual of also surreptitiously snapping the picture of Brown in her casket. Similarly, the person who took the hospice bed photo was also seeking $100,000.
Britney Spears’ conservatorship may go on indefinitely. The singer has been under conservatorship since January 2008 after her well-documented meltdown in late 2007, which resulted in her being placed on a psychiatrist hold.

Bobbi Kristina Brown's aunt Leolah Brown was reportedly thrown out of her funeral on Saturday after an outburst. The Houston and Brown families had gathered at Saint James United Methodist Church in Alpharetta, Georgia for a private service. Close friends were also in attendance, including Tyler Perry. Both sides of the families have been feuding for years, but tensions became especially high over the last few months due to Brown's tragic situation. And Leolah apparently hit her boiling point during the ceremony. Pat Houston was about to speak when Leolah yelled out, "Pat, you know you are wrong for this!" Security immediately stepped in to escort Leolah out of the service, and Perry followed in hopes of stopping the situation from escalating. Don’t know if Leolah was let back in. But outside the church, as the service continued, Leolah spoke to the press, slamming Pat. See the video HERE.
The FBI has acquired text messages in which Subway spokesperson Jared Fogle allegedly admits to paying for sex with a 16-year-old girl.

A civil suit against Bill Cosby is now set to proceed after California's Supreme Court rejected his request to review the case. What this means in the short term: the lawyer for the woman who's suing Cosby for allegedly sexually assaulting her in the Playboy Mansion in 1974 wants to grill him. "We are looking forward to Mr. Cosby answering questions under oath at his deposition and we will continue to seek justice for our courageous client, Judy Huth," Gloria Allred said yesterday, adding that the decision was "a huge, huge victory" for Huth and added that she hoped to get Cosby in a room for questioning within 30 days.

Finding it ironic to parade the pit women against other women argument about as one unmeasurably capitalizes on the take down of a woman...— KATY PERRY (@katyperry) July 22, 2015
Oooo shots fired!!! One day after Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift got into a Twitter spat over the 2015 VMA nominations, Katy Perry weighed in on their wars of words—and she's not holding back her disdain for Taylor Swift.A simple translation? She's calling Taylor Swift a hypocrite since she wrote "Bad Blood" about her ongoing feud with Perry (Minaj has since favorited the tweet). BTW…Nicki clarified what she originally meant with this: "Nothing to do with any of the women, but everything to do with a system that doesn't credit black women for their contributions to pop culture as freely/quickly as they reward others. We are huge trendsetters, not second class citizens that get thrown crumbs. This isn't anger. This is #information. It's all love to MTV. Kisses to my fans and thank you for my 3 nominations."
Oh…and now Taylor is being accused of ripping off the concept for her Bad Blood video. Can’t we all just get along??
Everyone seems to be jumping in on this one…even Moby. ‘Member him? He was asked about it and said Nicki needs to be happy she has a career.
Blake was in New Hampshire last Saturday for a NASCAR race, two nights before he officially divorced from Miranda and apparently toasted his divorce. He was celebrating at a karaoke bar after the race, drinking and even grabbing the mic for a rendition of Tracy Byrd's classic, "I'm From the Country." Before hitting up the karaoke bar, Blake was at a dive bar where everyone raised their shot glasses, but no one knew an appropriate toast and that's when Blake chimed in, "Divorce!" And then…his alleged mistress, Cady Groves, went on a Twitter view rant. A source denies that Groves was writing about Shelton and says the notes were about her ex-fiancé.
Now are Justin Bieber and his Australian counterpart Cody Simpson beefing? Cody says Justin called him a "f*cking idiot" for posting a video of them on Snapchat in which a marijuana pipe was visible.

In a new interview, Simpson admitted he didn't realize the pipe was in the shot until after he posted the clip. He also, however, doesn't think it's a big deal. "I'm 18, if I want to have a little smoke... Do your thing. It's just part of being young." Asked about Bieber and Horan's reaction, Simpson revealed, "Bieber texted me, 'You're a f*cking idiot.' I was like, 'Dude, I swear I didn't know!'" He clarified, though, that Bieber was "kind of joking" and "doesn't really care about that stuff that much either."

On the low though, I really think I'm a super hero... Now I'm not saying I'm Batman, but I am saying nobody has ever seen me and Batman in the same room together. LOL. #ImGood."
