Singer Kelis has filed for divorce from her rapper husband Nas, although she’s due to give birth to the couple’s son in just a couple months. The pair had been dating since 2002 and got married in 2005, and have collaborated on a number of tracks together. Citing irreconcilable differences in the divorce petition, Kelis’s rep asks that the “media respect her privacy during this very difficult time.”
The split has come as quite a surprise, as Nas only a few weeks ago was talking happily with MTV News about the impending baby. “She’s great, man. She’s doing good. [We are deciding between] a few baby names. It’s kinda hard. I’ve been thinking about kinda putting something online: ‘Choose his name,'” he said.
Amy Winehouse has discovered that her soon-to-be-ex husband Blake Incarcerated is having a baby with a heroin addict, but her reaction is well, not your usual. The ever-unique Amy managed to combine understandable rage and anger (apparently beating her chest repeatedly) with garbled pronouncements of happiness and that it’s all she ever wanted. Come again?
“All I wanna know and all I need to know is that my baby is having a baby. I never talk to him, I’m never going to see him again but we’re like best friends. I have to cut him out of my life because he has to cut me out…So me and Blake can’t be friends but you know what? He’s having a kid and that is amazing,” she says.
Amazing! But Amy doesn’t want to miss out on the baby boom herself. “My turn now, my turn now! Come on! Twins you know! I’ve got loads of twins in my family, I need to have twins. I want a big family. Twin boys first, two girls and then a baby after that can be a boy or a girl. I want it so much.” As this comes after she spent three days in hospital following an alcohol-induced collapse, we’d advise not to plan it too soon … [Photo: Splash News Online]
Yet another wrench has been thrown in the works preventing the great romance between Amy Winehouse and Blake Incarcerated sailing off into the sunset. A heroin addict called Gilleen Morris claims that she is pregnant with Blake’s baby after they met and slept together in rehab. You know how it goes …
“When I told him I was pregnant he said, ‘Oh f***!’ But he vowed to stand by me and raise the child,” she says.
What a lovely story – and sure to help Blake’s case for divorcing Amy on the grounds of her infidelity in St Lucia. Speaking of Amy, she’s still out there, and it looks like she’s got a dog. So more than a decent replacement for Blake, then. [Photo: Splash News Online]
As Lindsay Lohan continues her meltdown in the wake of her split with Samantha Ronson, the DJ has reached out to her to get help. People reports that the pair are still speaking because of Sam’s concern for Lindsay’s erratic behavior, and that she has “begged her to get help.”
“Lindsay barely sleeps, which explains a lot of her behavior. She’s exhausted. She can’t even sit down for a minute without pacing around the room. It’s really sad,” says a friend. While we applaud Sam trying to do the decent thing and not bail out on Lindsay, we’ve got a feeling that she’s not going to be able to fix Problem Lohan. [Photos: , Splash News Online]
Ding ding! All change in the Madonna camp – it seems that she’s ditched one needy child and is going to welcome in another. After reportedly turning down the chance to meet toyboy lover Jesus Luz’s mother in Brazil, who is 13 years younger than she, Madge hijacked manager Guy Oseary’s Twitter page to tell the world she’s flying solo again. In response to a fan’s comment “am glad you are single again,” she responded “not as glad as I am.”
Now she’s landed in Malawi with daughter Lourdes to complete her latest controversial adoption. Look, nothing stops MADONNA from adopting, ok? Not charities saying she’s making the problems in the country worse and not even the extended family of 4-year-old Mercy James saying they never wanted to “let her go.” Hmm. The adoption hearing is scheduled for later today. [Photo: Getty Images]
Uh-oh. Is the marriage between Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz in trouble? A source told Page Six that “Ashlee and Pete are on the rocks. He is going out all the time and she’s stuck at home. It’s just not working.” Sounds like a case of the here’s-what-happens-when-you-have-an-unexpected-kid-too-young-itis. Another symptom of that is naming your kid Bronx Mowgli.
Seems like being stuck at home with 4-month-old Bronx tethered to the boob isn’t fun anymore, especially while Pete gets to go hang with his friends — or maybe Ashlee has just grown tired of helping to brush Pete’s hair forward into that spiky asymmetrical look he’s honed all these years. Reps deny that there’s trouble in paradise, but the couple is currently vacationing, sans baby. Perhaps they’re trying to revive that dying spark. They were married last May. [Photo: WireImage]
Cris Judd is still around and his life is still dictated by Jennifer Lopez, y’all. Our favorite of her ex-husbands/fiancés (just because he was clearly so unsuited for the job) is currently choreographing a Chippendales tour which kicks off in Britain shortly. (Yes, we know). Speaking to the UK’s Closer magazine, poor old Cris bemoans his inability to find a woman since splitting with J.Lo back in 2002.
“I want to get married and start a family … I’m not seeing anyone at the moment but I wish I was. I’ve had girlfriends since Jennifer but they always compared themselves to her, and we ended up splitting up.”
Aw, diddums. Never mind, who needs romance when your career’s going so well? [Photos: Splash News Online]
If you didn’t know Amy Winehouse was, well, Amy Winehouse, an interview with her in one of Britain’s celebrity mags might lead you to believe this is a totally normal girl. “I just wanted to get away from London in the winter and have a nice break in the sunshine,” she tells Now about her two-month long jaunt to St Lucia. Don’t we all, love? Talking about how she enjoyed her “daily routine” of exercise and would “love to have a family” one day, Amy confidently asserts she “hasn’t done any smack or crack since before I went out there.” Mazel tov, Ames – good to see you’ve stuck to your New Year resolutions! But then everything goes horribly wrong once the topic veers over to Blake bloody Incarcerated.
“I still love Blake and I want him to move into my new house with me – that was my plan all along. I won’t let him divorce me. He’s the male version of me and we’re perfect for one another. Alright, I had some fun with a lovely bloke in St Lucia but that was a holiday thing. I don’t want anybody but Blake,” she says.
What does a guy have to do to put her off him? He’s already confessed to getting her addicted to drugs, hooked up with a teenager, started divorce proceedings and his mom’s called her a “trollop.” Clearly nothing will do the trick. [Photo: WireImage]
Was John Mayer‘s incessant tweeting behind his split with Jennifer Aniston? We’d like to think it was the fact he is the official Worst Boyfriend Ever, but Britain’s Star magazine is plumping for the first reason. In their new issue they claim that Jen got riled by John’s near-constant updating of his Twitter page when he also claimed he was too busy to call her.
“Every few hours, sometimes minutes, he’d update with some stupid line. And in her mind, she was like: ‘He has time for all this Twittering, but he can’t send me a text, an email, make a call?’ So she called him and ended it,” the magazine reports a source saying.
We hope this totally spurious story does have some truth in it because a) it’s so totally high school and we love the fact celebrity romances are as juvenile as they were when we were all 17, and b) it means Jen wasn’t totally blinded by his troubadour “I’m so sensitive but underneath beats the heart of a true bastard” schtick.

Calling all too-cool-for-f*cking-school hipsters! Do you dress like you’ve just fallen over in a charity shop covered in glue? Do your friends still think you look incredible and set trends wherever you go? Have you changed your name from something totally normal (Laura Hollins) to something bizarre and almost unpronounceable? Are you in a relationship? Good! Agyness Deyn and Albert Hammond Jr have split and an opening has arisen for a new leftfield celebrity couple to show us the way in hair color, co-ordinating bright jeans and insane hatwear. Good luck, edgy twosomes! [Photo: Splash News Online]
