Ashley Judd and her estranged husband Dario Franchitti had a turbulent marriage.
The Dolphin Tale actress and the Scottish racing driver recently decided to end their 11-year union but according to friends, the split was not a huge shock. 'They can be having a drink or dinner and all of a sudden sparks will fly, and they will be fighting over something that was said in their group of friends. Then it would stop and everything was fine between them," a source told people.
However, some pals were surprised as they believed Ashley, 44, and Dario, 39, who got engaged in December 1999 and married in December 2001, at Skibo Castle, near Dornoch, Scotland, were happy together because she was always so supportive of his career. Another insider added, "When he was introduced, or got a good pole position she yelled and waved her hands in the air and was there to support him in a big way. He is not that outgoing but it seemed cute and like a nice thing for a high-profile actress to be so there for her husband."
Kim Kardashian has been accused of having an affair with Kanye West while she was still dating Reggie Bush.
Rapper Consequence - who was once signed to Kanye's G.O.O.D record label but no longer talks to the "Stronger" hitmaker - alleges he drove the 35-year-old star to hotels to meet the brunette beauty while she was seeing the American footballer, whom she dated on and off from 2007 to 2010.
Speaking on radio station Power 105.1's Breakfast Club show, he claimed, "When he [Kanye] was sticking Kim when Kim was with Reggie you know whose secret that was? That was our secret." Consequence's girlfriend Jen The Pen then added, "When the rest of the world didn't know."
Jen also claimed Kanye would often ring Consequence - whose real name is Dexter Raymond Mills Jr. - and ask him for advice about Kim, who split with Reggie in 2010 and went on to marry Kris Humphries for 72 days in 2011. "He had his back every night that man called, 'What do I, what do I do about Kim. I need to be with her.' That secret was in my home," she explained.
Kim Kardashian says her on-going divorce from Kris Humphries will be finalized this year, and admits it feels like an "expensive dream."
The former couple tied the knot in August 2011 before the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star filed for divorce 72 days later and their separation has been dragging on ever since. E! has released the first ten minutes of the new series of Kourtney & Kim Take Miami, and Kim finally opens up about the on-going legal battle.
"[It's] a really expensive dream that won't leave me alone. It's something that should be over and done with but unfortunately it's not that easy. I'm annoyed about it but I've taken it to a level that I can't stress about this. The judge says we will be divorced in 2013."
Since the split Kim started dating Kanye West in April last year and the couple are expecting their first baby.
Erin Heatherton has moved on from Leonardo DiCaprio.
The Victoria's Secret model - who split from the 38-year-old Django Unchained star in October amid rumors she was fed up of his failure to commit to their relationship - is reportedly loved-up with a former USC football player, whom she met just weeks after breaking up with Leonardo.
A source told the New York Post's Page Six that the 23-year-old blonde beauty is dating former college basketball and football player Jordan Cameron, who is now a tight end for NFL team the Cleveland Browns. A mutual friend set up the couple shortly after she strutted her stuff in the Victoria's Secret fashion show in New York in early November.
Erin's good pal Lily Aldridge, 27, who is married to 30-year-old Kings of Leon star Caleb Followill, previously predicted she would have no problem finding a new boyfriend following her split from Leonardo after approximately a year of dating: "I don't think Erin's gonna have any problems getting a man. I'm pretty sure there's a line around New York City waiting for her. Every guy I know is like, 'Please introduce me to Erin!'"
Kris Humphries is reportedly dragging out his divorce from Kim Kardashian to hurt her.
While Kim, 32, is expecting her first child with rapper Kanye West, her marriage to Kris can't be officially dissolved until Kris agrees to settle the matter and he has allegedly told friends he is in no rush to end it. "He brags to everyone that he has that power. He's said it a million times. They can't go to court until his basketball season is over, so he tells people that he is in control of her misery. When he found out about the baby, he was bragging to all of his friends that he wasn't going to 'allow' her to be divorced when she had the baby. He intends to tell his attorney when they set a trial date next month that he can't do it until late summer. It's all planned and calculated," a source told The New York Daily News.
However, Kim wants to remove Kris from her life completely, so that she can focus on moving on with Kanye and their baby. "It's upsetting for her, but she's still not going to give in. Kim's a fighter and even though a lot of people think that Kim took advantage of Kris it was the other way around. She did love him and she gave him 100 per cent so there's no way she's going to turn around and say it was a fraud - that would be lying to the court," an insider said.
David and Victoria Beckham have enrolled their children in an English school.
The couple are now househunting in London after finding a $24,000-a-year establishment in the UK capital for sons Brooklyn, 13, Romeo, 10, and Cruz, seven, and will make the move from Los Angeles in the summer. David and Victoria are also believed to have found a nursery suitable for their 17-month-old daughter Harper.
"For David and Victoria, the children come first. They have spent months researching schools and after visiting a few earlier this month, have found one they agree on. It's an independent school and will not be fazed by having celebrity children on its books. Both David and Victoria's families are all delighted too as a return to London means they will see so much more of the children," a source close to the couple told the Daily Mirror.
Hayden Panettiere and Scotty McKnight have split up.
The "Nashville" actress and the football player called time on their relationship a few weeks ago but are determined to remain friends. According to gossip website TMZ, "Hayden Panettiere and her football player boyfriend Scotty McKnight are officially broken up. The two broke up a couple of weeks ago ... but it wasn't a nasty breakup. They are still really good friends. They will probably be back together sometime down the road."
Hayden started dating Scotty after splitting from heavyweight boxing champion Wladmir Klitschko in May 2011 after a year and a half together because they couldn't cope with having a long-distance relationship. Hayden lived in the US, while Wladimir - who was raised in the Ukraine - is based in Hamburg, Germany. "While we decided to split, we feel great sympathy and respect for each other and will surely stay close friends," Hayden said at the time.
Gisele Bundchen has reportedly given birth to a baby girl. The Brazilian supermodel and her NFL star husband Tom Brady welcomed their little girl, Vivian Brady, into the world on Thursday night, according to the Boston Globe newspaper.
No further details about the birth are yet to be released.
The couple already have a two-year-old son, Benjamin, together, while Tom - who plays football for the New England Patriots, who are based in the Greater Boston area - has a five-year-old son, John, with ex-girlfriend Bridget Moynahan. It was recently reported Gisele wanted to have a little girl but refused to find out the sex of her baby during her pregnancy. "She's hoping it's a girl - she loves little girls. But she wants to be surprised like when she had her first baby Ben," a source said.
The 32-year-old beauty has previously spoken about her love of being a mother and said she wanted lots of children: "I want to have a big family. I love kids."
Mike Tyson was "mad as hell" when he caught Brad Pitt in bed with his wife. The former world heavyweight boxing champion was furious when he walked in on Brad - a then unknown actor - and his model ex-wife Robin Givens having sex in her bed in the late 80s after their short-lived marriage had ended.
In an interview on US chat show In Depth With Graham Bensinger, he revealed, "I was mad as hell! I was going to ... you should have seen his face when he saw me." Despite going through a messy split - which eventually cost Mike a $10 million settlement and saw him accused of domestic abuse - Mike was still going to Robin's home every day to have sex with her when he caught Brad.
David Beckham is "close to" buying a US soccer team.
The sportsman recently quit Los Angeles Galaxy to focus on "one last challenge" and is thought to be planning to play in Europe but leaving the club doesn't mean he is completely bowing out of the game in America.
Speaking to Ryan Seacrest on Kiis FM, he said, "Yes. That will obviously comes into play now. It only came into play once I finished playing here. I'm excited about that. My commitment when I came here six years ago was to take this league to another level, and my commitment stays the same. I might not be playing here but I will become a owner of a franchise and it's something that I'm excited about. We're close to a decision on that, but I can't say it right now. I'm close to a decision on that!"
Announcing the end of his contract with LA Galaxy recently, David spoke about his ownership ambitions.
