Are Ben Affleck & Jennifer Garner Headed For Divorce

I know it’s likely slanderous for me to so much as speculate that there might be trouble in paradise when it comes to the Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck‘s marriage. They’re Hollywood’s golden couple! They have adorable kids! How could anything go wrong?! I don’t know, but apparently it has, because some people seem to think they split up and are planning to divorce.

Via the Daily Mail:

The couple, who married in 2005 and share children Violet, nine; Seraphina, six; and Samuel, three, have already separated, according to the Enquirer, and heading for a $150million divorce.

The website also suggest that Affleck, 42, is wanting an official announcement ahead of the duo’s 10th wedding anniversary so that media attention will have died down before he starts promoting upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice.

The couple have not been pictured together for over a month when they were spotted walking in their Brentwood, California neighbourhood.

Radar Online also ran a report suggesting Garner, 43, has reached breaking point after years of problems in the marriage.

An insider said: ‘Often, when Ben and Jen have a problem, they just agree to ride it out and be miserable together until they can get some time apart.’

They added: ‘Jennifer has close friends who think that she and Ben are a horrible fit, despite how much he loves being a father to those kids.’

Another insider told the publication: ‘Jen has actually been preparing herself emotionally for this divorce for some time.

‘She sees a therapist to learn how to cope with the divorce, and how to deal with the kids after they split. She’ll take custody of them.’

I mean, sure, considering the source, this could be a load of boloney. But just because the details might not be right doesn’t mean it can’t be true. A 10 year marriage in Hollywood is an amazing thing, but they’re still human and people do grow apart.

I dunno about this one, guys!

Kylie Jenner Wants You To Know She’s Not Pregnant

kylie jenner pregnant

I feel like I’m pretty tuned into pop culture, for better or worse, but somehow the rumor that Kylie Jenner is pregnant completely passed me by. For the record, she’s certainly NOT carrying Tyga‘s child (yet), thank god, but people were gossiping enough about it that she felt the need to put things right on Twitter.

I’m not quite sure where the rumors started, but it seems something on Instagram sparked it all. However, Kylie wants you to know that Instagram is not real. It’s a “made up world”… I suppose much like the one in which chemtrails exist?

Anyway, that’s a relief, for now. The last thing we need is another Kardashian/Jenner child running about, especially when the mother’s still a child herself.

Mariah Carey Shits On ‘American Idol’ Now That They’re Not Paying Her

You’ve gotta hand it to Mariah Carey for having the brass balls to bite the hand which one fed her. By that I mean, she’s talking shit about American Idol, a show on which she used to be a “judge”. And while what she’s saying is true, it’s sorta hilarious coming from someone who used to cash checks from the damn thing.

Here’s what she had to say during an interview with Australia’s KIIS-FM (via The Daily Mail):

“I’m sorry, I just think it’s… when I say it’s fake… I mean like you have to make up things to say about people. Half the time the performances are good, you’d just be like, ‘It was good” and you feel like ending it there: ‘You were really good.’”

She was also asked if she’d return for the final episode, since Idol has finally been cancelled. I’m sure you can imagine her answer.

“Hell no! Absolutely not, that was the worst experience of my life.”

It was the worst experience of mine, too, watching this queen lower herself to  such bullshit. Why did you have to do it, Mariah? I know the money was good, but you had plenty. I’ll never understand.

It’s Official: Lindsay Lohan Is Off Probation

Well, it’s happened: Lindsay Lohan is completely free and clear and off probation for the first time in EIGHT YEARS. That’s right! On Thursday, a judge bought the load of crap that Lindsay actually finished her 125 hours of community service during a slapdash week at a daycare center in Brooklyn and signed off on her freedom.

From TMZ:

Lilo’s lawyer, Shawn Holley, did the honors in court Thursday, getting the word from Hizzoner that Lindsay’s in the clear.

As we first reported, Lindsay did what we thought was impossible … completing 125 hours of community service in what looked like a probationary marathon … every day, 8 hours a day, for more than 2 weeks.

The stakes were high … if Lindsay didn’t get the job done, she was probably going to jail.

If you’re trying to do the math: Lohan’s probation stemmed from a 2012 reckless driving case where she lied to police, but she’s been on probation since her 2007 run-in with the law for drug possession and DUI that landed her in a Lynwood, Calif. jail for 84 minutes.

With these charges cleared, Lohan can go back to being famous for … you know, acting.

Well, except that it’s doubtful Lindsay will ever have a respectable acting career again. That ship sailed years back and she wasn’t on it, so… yeah. I’m sure she’ll stay in the news for all the trouble she gets in to in future. When she can’t book roles, she’ll get booked in jail. Mark my words.

Here’s A ‘Mean Girls’ Deleted Scene You Never Knew You Needed

mean girls

I know people are still batshit over Mean Girls, even though it came out 9 years ago now, and I can vaguely see why. It was written by Tina Fey, Rachel McAdams is in it, pre-drug-addled Lindsay Lohan is in it, and  yeah, it’s pretty hilarious and all that. I mean, I don’t know that it deserves the god-like status it’s given, but I can dig it. Which is why I think you’ll dig this deleted scene that was just released:

I can sorta see why they cut it, to be honest. Though I always welcome Amy “Cool Mom” Poehler in any form.

Katy Perry & John Mayer Go On Disneyland Date

So, Katy Perry and John Mayer got back together a while ago, for some unknown reason, and it seems like things have been going well. I suppose I’m not all that surprised, since I have ~inside info~ that they only broke up the first time because Katy was working too much (i.e. going on tour) and John basically just wanted to chill in LA so they took a break. Anyhow, they recently went to Disney World, and as you can see in the photo above, they look absolutely thrilled about it.

They took the trip to Disneyland over Memorial Day weekend and apparently looked all super romantic while they were there. But here’s the real question I have for all you LA people: Do you guys just go to Disneyland nonstop just because it’s there, and what the hell? Because seriously, everyone I know who lives out there is CONSTANTLY going, like, with the regularity I go to the greenmarket.

Bruce Jenner Wants His Wrongful Death Lawsuit Thrown Out

bruce jenner

Earlier this year, Bruce Jenner caused a fatal accident while driving in Los Angeles that killed a 69-year-old woman and seriously injured five others. He’s never really taken responsibility for the whole thing, and the stepchildren of the woman who died (who was named Kimberley Howe, for reference) filed a wrongful death lawsuit against him – a lawsuit he wants dropped.

From People:

Bruce Jenner has filed court papers to throw out the wrongful death suit filed by the stepchildren of the woman killed in an accident in February on Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu, California. 

In early May, Howe’s two stepchildren, William Howe, 57, and Dana Redmond, 60, filed the lawsuit alleging that the impact of Jenner’s SUV “propelled” her into the other lane. 

Jenner, 65, responded to the family’s suit stating they lack standing to assert a wrongful death claim because they were “not financially dependent upon the decedent for the necessities of life.” Jenner claims their family connection to the victim does not give them the right to sue for wrongful death, according to court papers obtained by PEOPLE. 

I’m sure some people will bitch and moan and claim that these people are probably after money because of who he is, but not only do I not believe that, but so what if they were? Jenner caused them to lose their stepmother and should pay up because it’s the least he could do.
