Being a celebrity is not always an enviable status. Yes, when they are at the top of the heap, they get paid millions of dollars, have designers clamouring for them to wear their fashions, and get the best seats in the house, whether it’s a basketball game, tickets to the Oscars, or a front-row table at Wolfgang Puck’s.
But it can’t be any fun to read the constant speculation from the gossip mags that you’re heading for divorce. Recently, there’s a lot of dirt being dished about a whole bunch of Hollywood celebrities, apparently on the brink of separation and divorce.
In random order, Star, Us, People, TMZ, Buzzfeed, and so many more are telling divorce tales about the following couples:
-Sheri Shepard, late of TV’s “The View” and her husband are on the rocks, and to tantalize the public, Ms. Shepard has been sewered for allegedly walking away from their child who was recently hatched via a surrogate mother;
- Jay-Z and Beyoncé grabbed the headlines when Beyoncé’s sister, Solange, was observed assaulting Jay-Z in an elevator, ostensibly because he had done Beyoncé wrong. Some are saying that Rhianna is involved. Columnists are rabidly predicting that at the end of their $100 million dollar world tour, they will pack in their marriage. However, New York divorce guru, Raoul Felder, says that the rampant publicity is a boon for their tour and may be nothing more than “good business” for the pair;
-Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are also rumoured to be heading towards Splitsville. The speculation is that the breakup is because of someone cheating, while others in the know say it’s because of Mariah’s diva-like behavior.
-Melanie Griffiths and Antonio Banderas separated a few months ago and now the paparazzi are following Melanie around Los Angeles, taking photos of her arm tattoo which is Antonio’s name in a heart, all the time wondering out loud when she will have it removed by laser.
-Barbara Streisand and James Brolin are another celebrity couple with rumours floating around. A recent article described Babs as very upset when she caught her 74-year-old husband ogling Kim Kardashian at an A List party in the Hamptons and we know he wasn’t looking at her eyes.
-Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are allegedly squabbling over when to have another baby and the stress has caused her to gain 20 lbs. She is apparently also in a panic because her dream marriage is a nightmare as Kanye keeps her on a tight leash with a GPS on her telephone so he can monitor her whenever he wishes.
Yes, there’s more: Ellen DeGeneres, Portia De Rossi, Michael Moore, Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, Kendra Wilkinson, David Duchovny, Tea Leoni, Robin Thicke, Paula Patton, Cuba Gooding Jr., Trace Adkin. Whew! It doesn’t end!
