It seemed like a May-December romance made in heaven, but the marriage of Billy Joel and his 27-year-old wife Katie Lee has officially come to an end.
“After nearly five years of marriage Billy Joel and Katie Lee Joel have decided to separate. This decision is a result of much thoughtful consideration. Billy and Katie remain caring friends with admiration and respect for each other,” Billy’s rep said.
Reportedly Billy became jealous of Katie’s friendship with another man. Oh well, Christie Brinkley‘s available! Recycling anyone?! [Source: Radar; Photo: Getty Images]
After girlfriend Sam Ronson left Lindsay Lohan again with another broken heart, what’s a sad sad girl to do? Hit the shops of course! Which is exactly what Lilo did yesterday, popping into New York City’s Blue & Cream with little brother Cody. Looks like the retail therapy was just what she needed; she emerged from the store with a glow and a big smile. [Photos: Splash News Online]
He may have cheated on her with his nanny, therefore subjecting her to national humiliation, but that doesn’t stop Jude Law from laying down, er, the law on his ex-fiancee Sienna Miller. Nope. The star revealed in an interview with Vogue magazine that balding Jude got touchy at her talking about him in an interview. So now she’s talking about him some more.
“I talked about him in an interview not long ago, saying that I still love him, and he was like, ‘Please stop talking about it,'” she says. Yep, we love this reverse revenge-type thing. Just carry on annoying him, Sienna. Ha. [Photo: Getty Images]
Kanye West has confirmed his break-up with Amber Rose, weeks after rumors surfaced that the model had cheated on him. “They are no longer a couple,” a representative told Page Six today. Unless she becomes a reality whore—we’d love to see her trapped on an island!—this might be the last we hear of Amber for a while.
Thankfully, West has found another fashion plate to spend time with. The rapper announced on The View today that he’ll be co-headlining a tour with Lady Gaga this summer. She’s talented and so incredible that she’s not an opening act,” he said. “We’re doing it together, with no opening act.” That’s unusually humble for Kanye—is he hoping for a little rebound fun? Didn’t he say in “Stronger” that he’d “do anything for a blond d–e“?

Katie Price is finally getting some good advice. The glamor-girl turned businesswoman has seen her public profile plummet in the wake of the split from husband Peter Andre, after being judged callous and cold in her approach. And she was due to spill all about the breakup to British chat show host Jonathan Ross on Friday night, but has pulled out at the last minute. Although the official line is that she “doesn’t feel ready,” we couldn’t help but notice the news comes as soon as she’s signed up with new management company the Outside Organisation, after sacking her previous reps.
The bulk of public sympathy still lies with Peter, who’s officially instructed divorce proceedings and is hoping to get joint custody of their children. But with a cast-iron celebrity management company behind her again, expect to see a “kinder,” “gentler” Katie emerge soon. And if they can get a hold of her disastrous fashion sense, then so much the better! [Photo: Splash News Online]
The PR war is on! After the shock news yesterday about Katie Price and Peter Andre‘s split — a couple who literally lived every second of their relationship through the UK media — Katie has already released a statement making it clear who wants this breakup, and who’s the dumpee, here. And it’s not who we initially thought.
“Pete is the love of my life. We have children together and I am devastated and disappointed by Peter’s decision to separate and divorce me – as I married him for life. This is not what I want and the decision has been taken out of my hands,” said Katie in a statement.
Reports claim it’s Katie — aka Jordan’s — drinking that has contributed to the split, quoting Pete as saying, “From the moment she starts drinking I lose her and I don’t get her back until the next morning. Kate’s had problems with drink. She knows she can’t handle it. It turns her into someone I don’t recognize and I don’t like.” And despite the breakup, some British bookies are placing bets on the couple getting back together before the end of the year. What is clear is that just like their relationship, we’re sure to find out more as time goes on . [Photo: WireImage]
Hmmm – we’re going to file this under ‘Uh-huh‘ at the moment but it still makes us beyond excited. Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt are back in serious touch, speaking “almost daily” on the phone and meeting up in secret, according to new reports. Grazia mag claims Brad got back in touch with Jen over Easter, and Jen, being totally not “uncool” agreed to put the past behind them and meet up as friends. He then apparently poured his heart out to her over his current rumored troubles with Angelina Jolie.
“It sounds crazy given their history, but I think Jen just wants to be a good friend to Brad right now. He’s in bits and she wants to help,” a friend says. And of course, Angie is far from thrilled. Naturally her reps are denying this story, but we think it sounds kind of sweet. Unrealistic, but sweet! [Photo: Splash News Online]
Katie Price and Peter Andre are breaking up five years, two children, at least five reality shows and countless public appearances after meeting on the UK version of I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here. According to their publicists, singer Andre and model Price—formerly known as Jordan— “have both requested that the media respect their families’ privacy at this difficult time.” It’s really happening!
The news is a shock for fans, as less than a week ago they announced plans to conceive a third child during an upcoming vacation in Cyprus. “I’m aiming to plant my seed every night,” Andre told OK! Magazine. What could have gone wrong?

Although they went their separate ways months ago, and he has since picked up three new girlfriends, Hugh Hefner says he would welcome Holly Madison back anytime.
Hef said he would welcome Holly back with open arms anytime because she is the “love of his life.”
But what about those new girlfriends Crystal Harris, and Karissa and Kristina Shannon? “How serious, and intimate, and important that works out to be, well we’ll have to wait and see because it’s only a couple months old,” he said.
Holly, however, doesn’t look like she’s running back to the mansion anytime soon. “I loved my time at the mansion and think the world of Hef,” she said. “There comes a time in everyone’s life where they need to go their own way.”
Hef and Holly certainly had some good times. Check out our gallery of them through the years! [Source: FoxNews.com; Photo: Getty Images]
The rumors about the state of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s relationship are getting so loud, we’re thinking of wearing earplugs more or less permanently. The latest doom-laden gossip has Brangelina living separate lives and claim they’re “gearing up” to announce a split. Britain’s Grazia mag goes in for the kill after flagging up the fact that Brad flew to the family’s French mansion alone over Easter — and that he was going there to nab his portion of the couples’ art collection.
“It’s going to be one of Hollywood’s nastiest breakups. There’s talk of lawyers being brought in to divide their assets and decide custody arrangements. Their relationship has soured to the extent that they aren’t even talking,” the mag reports a source saying.
Nooo! Say it ain’t so for the Rainbow Family. What about the Wonder Twins? It seems only a short while ago that we were blogging about Shrek bringing these two close to getting married. Halcyon days. [Photo: WireImage]
