Cesar Millan is definitely digging deep in his doggie stash to keep the peace with his ex-wife. After ending their marriage in June 2010, the 42 year old Animal Planet superhero doesn’t seem fazed with his ex-wife’s financial demands to keep her silence.

Millan has agreed to appease his ex spouse, Ilusion,  with a mouth dropping $400,000 lump sum payment. On top of this, he pays $10,000 a month in child support  and  $23,000 monthly alimony. Cesar and his wife were married for 16 years and have two sons.

Whispers of documents that have been in court settlement for the couple say that the former Mrs. Millan has agreed in return, to keep in confidentiality any personal/private information about the other party and  any sexual details of their relationship. This also shall include non-commercial photographs, film or videotapes and recordings.

We are in utter wonderment of these said materials since there have been no specific mention of any explicit goings- on in the personal life of our favourite Mexican kennel mentor. At the time of their separation, they seem to have been in good grounds and kept firm on being caring friends and committed parents to their sons.

Oh well, this financial settlement may just as be chump change for the famous dog whisperer as his  multiple Emmy nominated show grosses $170,000 a month. And afterall, we all know we can’t put a real price on freedom and happiness.

The marriage is over between Ronan Keating and his wife Yvonne. This is a recent development on the Irish singer who has been riding a rough tumble and toss in his personal life. But during a photo call with his old Boyzone mate, Keith Duffy, Ronan stepped up to finally admit to the public that it is over.

The 35 year old boy band heartthrob was promoting World Autism Awareness Day when cameras caught his brave smiles as he played with local kids at the Fire Restaurant. However, despite the break up, his tweets are definitely firm on dismissing rumors that he is moving to Oz, since his 3 children all live in Ireland. He says he will be staying in Dublin for half of the year and will only fly to Sydney as he is needed to film the Ozzie edition of The X Factor where he has been sitting as a judge since 2010.

There are no solid facts as to the real reason behind the split, but whispers have gone loud on the matter of time and distance being the main contributing factor of an already rocky marriage surviving with ragged seams of the couple’s struggling efforts to repair it. This came after Ronan had an affair with his back up dancer just two years ago. Obviously, despite of his fault as a husband, the man is a devoted father — and has no other plans to be anything less.

Seal and Heidi Klum Release Split Up Statement

Heidi Klum and Seal

Heidi Klum and Seal

A lot of tongues wagged when Seal somehow snatched up gorgeous Heidi Klum. The more vicious ones kept throwing the same question out there: how did the singer manage to get her attention?

I say that it is a reflection of Heidi Klum’s priorities. Yup, people, not all women are after those hot, hunky guys. Although that factor always helps as long as the guy isn’t an a-hole. Read the rest of this entry »

Hollywood marriages seem to get on a pretty short trend these days. This makes you wonder how much thought these celebrities put into the word commitment as after all the wedding glitz … the evident divorce circus ring with their lawyers and the media certainly looks like a normal day on the set of their reel lives.
After merely 18 days of marriage, Sinead O’ Connor pulls the plug on her marriage to Barry Herridge. The singer who turned 45 this month, got hitched on the same day after her public manhunt for love and a lover.
Expressing her sentiments for her change of heart, O’Connor pleads guilty to rushing into the marriage and feels that her husband is much too nice to be trapped and married to a woman who wanted to smoke up on a wee blunt on their wedding night. Apparently, that little wild antic came as a shock and hurt the groom. At the same time,the singer confesses that the attitude of people in her husband’s life also had much bearing on her decision to set him free .
In spite of a painful ending, O’Connor still professes her love to 38 yr old Barry Herridge but feels he has so much to lose if they stayed together.

72! Yep, that’s the magic number. 72 days is all it boiled down to after all the hype and media circus we all got subjected to months before the actual wedding day of Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries. Barely two and a half months down the road of their big fat wedding, Kim has confirmed that she is indeed, filing for divorce. Whispers have been ringing around that Kim and Kris were having issues with money , career and having babies. Let alone changing Kim’s last name to Mrs. Humphries was also on the debate table in the midst of the engagement and wedding preparations. Being at the peak of her career , her growing retail business, and effortlessly just being one of the hottest chics that have ever graced the screens … any guy would pretty much have a hard time keeping up with this Kardashian. Kim is filing divorce under irreconcilable differences. Really??? Nawh.

You would think that after 10million dollars, 450 guests and three Vera Wang weddng gowns, the couple would have made sure they sat down and pondered on this whole shebang of married life. But nah, they were too busy having their moments filmed and cashed in on almost every angle.
However much a sad fact for any marriage to go down the drain , it’s even sadder that their love story …if there ever was any true love … all that should’ve mattered turned into glitter dust and reduced to a statistic written down in media history as one of those short lived celebrity marriages we all get to shake our gossiping heads about.
If there was any good thing to come out of this marriage, they sure both got a nice fat pay check from the word go of their engagement . Of course, all that doesn’t really matter, right? This is all about a real love story … but with a chunky price tag.

Ryan Reynolds: Taking It Easy With Love

The “Sexiest Man Alive” is apparently still hurting over his divorce from his 2-year marriage to now ex-wife Scarlett Johannson.  Ryan Reynolds says he still needs time to heal to this day after their divorce last December.

In an interview, the 34 year old actor, who we want to see in funny T-shirts admits he’s still not out of the mud yet but holds a lot of optimism for the future.  Although he seems to be going through a lot of pain, just like anyone who goes through a divorce. Reynolds say, eventually  you come out of it.

The Green Lantern actor muses that he may no longer want to get married again. Speaking on his emotional stand at this point, Reynolds says he is now a different person than he was six months ago. He has been spotted getting friendly with German model Agnes Fischer while filming his new movie Safe House in South Africa. When asked about this, he quickly quips that he is very happy not be in a relationship right now and finds dating to be somewhat of an alien thing to him at this point in his life.

In spite of his refusal to discuss any specific matters regarding his Scarlett Johansson, he proudly speaks of  how they managed to end their marriage and still maintain the idea that she is still the same person he married.

Still the reigning “Sexiest Man Alive” , Ryan Reynolds is concentrating on his current project “Safe House” where he prouds himself with death defying stunts and intense emotional scenes.

With our schadenfreude glasses on we decided to have a look at the top ten shortest Hollywood Marriages and compile them in a nice infographic for you.

Brad and Angelina Split?

For years, they seemed like the perfect Hollywood couple. Now, various websites have reported that Brad Pitt, 40, and Angelina Jolie, 34, are on their way to splitsville. Team Jennifer can now rejoice.

Brad Pitt Takes a Stressed Angeline Jolie Out in NYC!
Amidst rumors swirling about their unhappy home life, Brad Pitt steps out earlier in the day on January 6, 2010 in New York with partner Angelina Jolie before taking out the upset looking A-list actress for a romantic dinner away from their pack of children.

According to Daily Mail, “the news comes after months of speculation that the couple—who are not married—were drifting apart.” If you believe the unofficial reports, Brad and Angelina have already signed legal papers that will let them equally share their wealth, as well as custody of their children.

They fell in love with each other when they played a couple in Mr. and Mrs. Smith back in 2004 while Brad was still married to Jennifer Aniston. As soon as Brad and Jen’s divorce was finalized, he and Angelina began building a family, thus earning the couple the nickname Brangelina. They have three adopted kids (Maddox, 8, Pax, 6, and Zahara, 5), and three biological kids (Shiloh, 3, and twins Knox and Vivienne, both 17 months old).

Do you believe the reports?


Usher And Tameka Officially Divorced

Usher and Tameka Foster Raymond are officially divorced. We heard news about Usher filing for divorce earlier this year and how Tameka was contesting the details. Last week, the court gave the final decision on the divorce – they are both officially single now!


Edward Furlong: Judgment Day

Back in the day he was a teen heartthrob, thanks to movies such as Terminator 2, Pecker, and American History X. Now, Edward Furlong is fighting a battle far more toxic than cyborgs—his ex wife, Rachael Bella (a.k.a Rachael Kneeland).

Launch Party For Playstation 3 - Arrivals

Citing irreconcilable differences, she filed for divorce last summer and in usual Hollywood fashion, things are turning for the worse. She recently won a restraining order against him because of alleged violent acts.

Kneeland said in an interview, “he grabbed me, bruised me, pushed me, made threats of more violence, [and] left messages saying he would hire people to come and beat me with chains and bats.” She also claimed that Furlong abuses illegal drugs such as cocaine.

Furlong’s representative, R.J. Rousso, recently told People that the allegations are false. “Mr. Furlong vehemently denies all allegations that have been made and is currently working with his legal team to have this temporary restraining order extinguished,” Rousso said. “Unfortunately, the two parties are going through a very contentious divorce and custody battle. Eddie’s main concern is his son, Ethan, and moving forward with his life.”

As for the drug accusations, Rousso rebuts, “Eddie has been sober for more than five years and is preparing to begin production on a new film.” He began shooting the adaptation of The Green Hornet last weekend with fellow actors Seth Rogen, Cameron Diaz, Jay Chou, Edward James Olmos, David Harbour, Tom Wilkinson and Christoph Waltz.

On September 25, the Superior Court has ordered Furlong to stay 100 yards away from Kneeland. The 32-year-old actor was also stripped of visitation rights for his 3-year-old son. Furlong is fighting to have the temporary order revoked.

This isn’t Furlong’s first relationship that ended in court. In 1998, his former girlfriend-manager Jacqueline Louise Domac, 14 years his senior, sued him for abuse and breach of contract.

We wonder what Judgment Day has in store for Furlong this time around.

Jon Gosselin’s Lawyer Drops Him

Jon and Kate’s divorce might not go through as fast as they would want it to. Apparently, Jon’s divorce lawyer has dropped him. No reason has been give, but he has filed a petition to withdraw. Bet on how soon they find a new lawyer?


Not that I am taking the woman’s side here, but isn’t it Kate who ought to have more trust issues with a cheating husband? Anyhow, in the second part of Jon’s interview with GMA, he said that he doesn’t trust his wife anymore; that she was constantly abusing him verbally; that he was beaten down. Well, he doesn’t look like someone who has been beaten down to me, does he?

No, he has not switched careers to become a real estate agent. He is merely selling a couple of houses in the Hamptons as a result of his split with third wife, Katie Lee Joel. The real real estate agent, Biana Stepanian, says that the larger home is selling for $22.5 million while the bungalow is selling for $12.5 million. Interested?


Jon Gosselin is NOT Joining “Divorced Dad’s Club”

It’s a “real” club, at least as real as reality TV can get. Divorced Dad’s Club is actually a new reality TV show in the making, and it has been rumored that Jon will be joining the cast. A rep from the production company says that no talks are going on, though. What do you think? Jon & Kate Plus Eight or Divorced Dad’s Club?
