As expected, Brian Austin Green filed documents Tuesday seeking spousal support from his soon-to-be ex-wife, Megan Fox, who filed for legal separation over a month ago.
The couple, who have been married for five years, are still living together and co-parenting their two sons, Noah Shannon, 3, and Bodhi Ransom, 18 months. Green, also dad to 13-year-old son Kassius with ex Vanessa Marcil, is seeking joint custody, People reports.
The 42-year-old Beverly Hills, 90210 alum for the most part has been out of work since December, when the couple got into a car accident that left him with vertigo. The condition affects Green’s balance and thus his ability to act. Fox, 29, was uninjured and is still working on major movies. She also recently signed on to star in Fox’s New Girl while Zooey Deschanel is on maternity leave.
The couple got engaged in 2006 and called things off in 2009. Though they had publicly called it quits, the pair often were seen together in around Los Angeles, and they got engaged again in 2010, marrying just 24 days later.Full Story
Naya Rivera has something to sing about. The Glee alum gave birth to her firstborn son with husband Ryan Dorsey last month, Us Weekly reports.
“They are so excited to be first-time parents,” an insider said “It was a very easy pregnancy and birth.”
The 28-year-old singer-actress “was born to be a mother and is doing really great so far,” the source dished. “And Ryan has amazing paternal instincts and has been waiting on them both hand and foot.”
The honeymoon phase sure is great, isn’t it? Rivera and her 32-year-old actor hubby wed in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, in July of last year, just three months after Rivera broke off her engagement to rapper Big Sean, who then rebounded with Ariana Grande.

If the Best Body Award were actually a thing, we would give it to Amy Schumer, because she is the best and reps all who have actual biceps, thighs and fat cells.
But it is not a thing, as far as we know or care. Regardless, this Instagram snap of the Trainwreck star delights us.
“There are so many foods I want to thank,” the comedian captioned the photo taken at what appears to be a drug store during her vacation in a tropical-looking locale.
The Emmy winner did win a Glamour award in June and gave a hilarious speech that included this gem: “I’m probably like 160 pounds right now, and I can catch a d--- whenever I want,” adding, “I’m not going to apologize for who I am, and I’m going to actually love the skin I’m in and not be striving for some other version of myself.”

Side note: The firstborn son of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West is due on the birthday of Jesus himself, because of course he is.
If you think this screams “scheduled for attention,” we won’t shame you because we, too, cannot stop raising our eyebrows/palming our faces/rolling our eyes/hating ourselves for reading, writing and inexplicably feeling angry about this.
Sources tell TMZ that Kardashian has a condition in which the placenta grows too deeply into the uterus — so it’s safer to get the baby out on Christmas, apparently. TMZ also says a natural birth is planned for the holiday, which is hilarious because that's not how it works.
Anyway, a C-section will go down on the Magic One’s big day if Kim hasn’t gone into labor by then.
The couple have already booked a deluxe maternity suite in the Cedars-Sinai sky. And also, I’m so glad I’m putting my journalism degree to good use. #blessedFull Story
Not even sure how to begin writing this one.
Cathriona White, the on again-off again girlfriend of Jim Carrey, has died of an apparent suicide. The 28-year-old's body was found inside a Sherman Oaks, Calif., home on Monday night, just days after the couple split on Thursday.
“I am shocked and deeply saddened by the passing of my sweet Cathriona,” Carrey said in a statement. “She was a truly kind and delicate Irish flower, too sensitive for this soil, to whom loving and being loved was all that sparkled. My heart goes out to her family and friends and to everyone who loved and cared about her. We have all been hit with a lightning bolt.”
A source told TMZ that a suicide note addressed to Carrey mentioned that the two had parted ways. Police confirmed to Entertainment Tonight that a note was found inside the home. White also took to social media the day of the breakup to write a cryptic goodbye.
“Signing off Twitter, I hope I have been a light to my nearest and dearest,” she wrote. …Full Story
The cause of Bobbi Kristina Brown’s death has been determined, but the medical examiner’s office is keeping the results under wraps.
“We’re not revealing any information, unfortunately,” the Fulton County (Ga.) Medical Examiner investigations unit told People.
That’s because a court order says the autopsy results must remain sealed.
“The Fulton County Medical Examiner has classified the cause and manner of Bobbi Kristina Brown’s death based on information available as of September 25, 2015,” a statement on the website says. “However, a Fulton County Superior Court Order dated September 25, 2015 has been received Sealing the Autopsy Report and ordering the Medical Examiner to not release any further information to the public. The Fulton County District Attorney and Roswell Police Department have been informed of the Medical Examiner’s findings.”
A police report earlier this year described the death as a drowning.
Brown, 22, was the only daughter of the late Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown. She died surrounded by family in hospice care in July, six months after being found unresponsive and face-down in a bathtub at her Atlanta-area townhouse. …Full Story
Let's get right to it: Fetty Wap is going to live, everyone.
The Trap Queen rapper took to Instagram on Sunday to let the world know he’s going to be fine after surviving a motorcycle accident that landed him in a New Jersey hospital over the weekend.
“I appreciate all my fans praying for me, man,” Wap says in the video. “I had a little accident, but I’m straight. I mean, I broke my leg in three places, but I’ll be alright.”
Wap (nee Willie Maxwell) was trying to pass a vehicle in his hometown of Paterson, N.J., on Saturday when he collided with a vehicle traveling in the opposite direction, a witness tells TMZ.
To add insult to injury, the 25-year-old Wap was cited for driving without a license, not having insurance and failing to provide proof of registration, according to the Associated Press.
“Appreciate Ya so much for the prayers,” Wap wrote on Instagram. “They told me don’t make a video but I’m still breathing so I gotta let ya no I’ll be back.”
But hopefully not back on the road until he clears up a few things.Full Story
Oh, Frances Bean Cobain, always with getting the Internet’s attention.
The daughter of Courtney Love and the late Kurt Cobain secretly married her longtime boyfriend, Eeries frontman Isaiah Silva, sometime last week, and it appears her mother wasn’t invited — or was she?
Here’s what we know:
According to the Mirror UK, the couple got hitched in a small ceremony attended by a “close circle of friends,” which TMZ says included about 15 people.
Cobain, 23, only told her mom about the nuptials after they took place. A Tumblr photo later surfaced showing the pair in a black-and-white snapshot with Silva’s wedding band clearly visible.
Love, 51, addressed her M.I.A. status via Instagram on Saturday.
“If you think I’m sorry for being a no-show at any important events this week, think again,” the Hole rocker captioned a photo of herself and actor James Norley. “I was with @jamesnorley #candyface #worthflakingonanythingfor #heaven #worthit #slay #bae #cancelallmyappointments #donthate #stud #jealousmuch? ... Bwahaa xc.” …Full Story
Watch what you say about Sean Penn.
The actor is suing Empire creator Lee Daniels because he likened Penn to Terrence Howard, the star of the Fox hit, in a recent interview with the Hollywood Reporter.
“[Terrence] ain’t done nothing different than Marlon Brando or Sean Penn, and all of a sudden he’s some f--kin’ demon,” Daniels said of Howard’s recent legal issues. “That’s a sign of the time, of race, of where we are right now in America.”
The defamation lawsuit filed Tuesday in New York Supreme Court seeks $10 million in damages and asserts that Daniels falsely implied that Penn has hit women.
Reads the complaint: “As a result of Penn’s status as a public figure, he has for years been the subject of scandalous, scurrilous, and baseless attacks. But Penn, like any citizen, has a right to defend himself and will no longer tolerate the reckless and malicious behavior of others, who seek to aggrandize themselves or their projects at his expense. Accordingly, and because of Daniels’ defamatory statements, Penn brings this action for monetary relief, and to deter Daniels and others from their defamatory actions.” …Full Story
Learn, celebrities: Everybody has a camera.
Azealia Banks had a terrible outburst on a plane, and lucky for us it was caught on video so we can judge her forever.
The rapper got into a scuffle with a couple on a Delta flight from New York to Los Angeles on Monday, and the incident culminated with Banks calling a flight attendant a “f---ing
This certainly isn’t the first time Banks has used the homophobic slur. She’s defended using it in the past, saying she identifies as bisexual, so that makes it okay.
After the video was published on TMZ, Banks briefly privatized her Twitter account but eventually came back to make this statement:
“Now you all can sit here in your fake outrage and discuss this amongst yourselves!! I’m headed to the beauty parlor! SIYONARA MOTHERF---ERS”
Here’s what happened: …Full Story
He said he'd be back.
Hasta la vista, Donald Trump.
There’s a new reality celebrity competition host in town, and he’s here to pump… us up… about the latest season of Celebrity Apprentice.
NBC has chosen former governor of Caleeforniaah, Arnold Schwarzenegger, as the show’s new boss for 2016.
“I have always been a huge fan of the Celebrity Apprentice and the way it showcases the challenges and triumphs of business and teamwork,” Schwarzenegger said in a statement. “I am thrilled to bring my experience to the boardroom and to continue to raise millions for charity. Let’s get started!”
The move first seemed surprising, until we remembered that Arnold for quite a while was, in a roundabout way, part of the NBC family. He split from former NBC News anchor Maria Shriver in 2011 after 25 years of marriage, and he was basically on Saturday Night Live forever in the form of Hans and Franz spoofdom.
The five-time Mr. Universe, of course, had roles like the Terminator and Conan the Barbarian that grossed billions worldwide, plus he has successfully invested in real estate and sports frachises, so he knows a little something about bringing in cash, which is what Celebrity Apprentice is all about. …Full Story
They're on a boat.
We have a soft spot for any couple who met on the set of a Sick Puppies music video, and since we only know of one couple who has done that, we dedicate this item to them — and also because, well, this item is entirely about them.
Vampire Diaries actress Kayla Ewell has married her longtime boyfriend Tanner Novlan. The couple wed in front of 200 of their nearest and dearest at the Jonathan Club, whatever that is, in downtown Los Angeles on Saturday.
The pair met five years ago on the set of the music video for Maybe by the Australian band.
“It was my birthday, and I got a phone call to do a music video,” Ewell told People. “I was with my girlfriend at lunch and she was like, 'It’s your birthday and you got a phone call out of the blue to do this music video? I think you should do it!’ I joke with Tanner that he was the best birthday present that I ever got.”
The couple got engaged during a sailboat ride nine months ago in Santa Monica. …Full Story
The Taylor Swift Award For Being Taylor Swift.
This feels like a good time to hand Taylor Swift all the awards and call it a day. Think of all the time and almost caring we would save.
Did you even know that Swift (winner of countless CMA, VMA, Billboard, Grammy and other awards) was nominated for an Emmy? Neither did we, but she was. And she won because she is the golden child and likely will win an EGOT at some point, as she is already half way there and in the past has been nominated for Golden Globes for songs on the the Hunger Games and One Chance soundtracks, thus demonstrating the likelihood that she will one day somehow win an Oscar and then ultimately a Tony.
But we digress a lot.
The point is, according to Vanity Fair, that Swift was nominated in the Best Original Interactive Program category, which was presented at the untelevised (thank goodness) Creative Arts Emmys on Saturday. She won for “AMEX Unstaged: Taylor Swift Experience,” and though we won’t have to endure another one of Swift’s pretend-surprise speeches or high-wasted red carpet outfits, we do have to endure all of the “give credit to my crew” Instagram snaps Swift posted after the Emmys people overnighted her trophy. …Full Story
Great, now we want to go to Burning Man with Susan Sarandon.
Well, this is a weird item.
Susan Sarandon led a Burning Man funeral for Timothy Leary, the late psychologist and psychedelic drug activist who died in 1996.
When Leary passed, several of his close friends received his ashes, and many sent them into space. Sarandon kept hers.
“When I went to Burning Man last time, that’s when I thought I’d bring him back here,” Sarandon told the Reno Gazette-Journal.
The actress led a memorial procession to a temporary church built for and designed to be burned at the end of the week-long festival in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert. The art installation was adorned with photos of Leary as well as a bunch of random shots, such as alligators, dogs, magicians and a photo of the grandfather of photographer Michael Garlington, who created the gilded installation called “Totem of Confessions.” …Full Story
It’s officially over for Jon Hamm and Jennifer Wetfeldt.
With one swift joint statement, the pair became the latest of countless Hollywood couples to bite the dust this year.
“With great sadness, we have decided to separate, after 18 years of love and shared history,” the couple told People. “We will continue to be supportive of each other in every way possible moving forward.”
Hamm and Wetfeldt got together in 1997 and in 2011 starred together in the film Friends with Kids. Rumors heated up months ago that these two were going to call it quits, but they looked very close at the after-party for Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp in July.
Hamm, 44, has often publicly credited Wetfeldt, 45, for getting him through his battle with alcohol abuse.
Their split may actually come as a bit of a surprise for this reason: The pair released a statement in April denying that they were breaking up, and Hamm once told People of their relationship, “Our lives are entwined. It’s a long time [together]. I’m definitely the guy that repeats his stories! Mostly it’s just paying attention and keeping engaged and not succumbing to inertia or going through the motions.”Full Story
