Rihanna and Chris Brown‘s relationship is apparently on its last legs. The singers have split, sources say, after a failed reconcilation following Brown’s alleged attack on the night before the Grammys. An anonymous pal says, “Chris and Rihanna are on opposite coasts right now. They are taking a break.”
Friends say that RiRi – who dined with Jay-z and Beyonce last week in the Big Apple – “desperately wants the whole situation to go away.” And she may be in luck – aside from his court appearance, Chris is nowhere to be found. Perhaps he’s jet-skiing off the coast of Mexico somewhere? [NYP. Photo: WireImage]
Chris Brown has finally realized that it’s time to launch Plan B of his “Save My Image Campaign,” and the singer has decided that firing his entire “team” is the way to go. The alleged batterer is apparently dropping his manager Tina Davis (who may be at the heart of the violent scandal), lawyer Mark Geragos, and p.r. flack Mark Sitris.
The reason behind the mass layoffs? His awkward statement, which Chris believes was too little, too late. Finally, something we can agree with him about! “Chris wanted to apologize [for the alleged beat-down] much earlier,” said a source, “. . . and he was upset when the apology was finally released because it sounded so insincere.”
Rihanna‘s people may be the wiser bunch, as they’re working hard to convince the singer to drop Chris for good. And it may be working! RiRi hasn’t seen Chris since their time together at Chez Diddy, but a friend says, “she’s not completely sure she’s done with him yet.” [NYP. Photo: GettyImages]
John Mayer finally woke up and realized he’s been dating the girl from Leprechaun, and has kicked Jennifer Aniston back to the curb upon which he left her the last time around. Apparently John did the deed after Jen got back from promoting Marley & Me, which means he totally waited until after the Oscars to ruin her life. Ugh, he’s just that guy in high school who breaks up with you the day after prom. Classy, Mayer!
A source tells E! Online that, “He broke up with her when she got back from her European tour,” but Aniston pals are urging gossips to have some patience. This is a regular thing for the pair, which must mean a reconcilation – and a new song – is right around the corner. Until then, Jen can drown her sorrows in a bottle of Smart Water.

We hate to break it to you, but Megan Fox has not completely kicked Brian Austin Green to the curb. The pair has “hit a rough patch,” says an insider, and they are entrenched in counseling to try to mend their broken love.
The pair have been spotted together since their split, and a friend of the couple says that they’re definitely still together. Another source revealed that, “These two are very much in love and plan to be together for a long time. They decided to enter counseling in hopes of staying together. It was a mutual decision. Lots of couples go to therapy together, and they are committed to try and make it work.”

Scandal update from Wasilla, Alaska! Apparently Governor Sarah Palin‘s daughter Bristol has dumped her baby daddy Levi Johnston for being beneath her and the Palin clan, and is refusing to let him near their newborn son Tripp.
Levi’s sister Mercede is capitalizing on the situation (smart girl!) and spilled all to Star magazine. “Levi tries to visit Tripp every single day, but Bristol makes it nearly impossible. She tells him he can’t take the baby to our house because she doesn’t want him around ‘white trash!'” Bristol won’t even allow him to watch the baby for a few hours — unless he’s babysitting.”
Mercede goes on to say that the Governer has gotten in on the act, and that she’s “lost lots of respect for her.” As she should! We thought the Palins whole deal was that they embraced their trashiness – huntin’ wolves, mutterin’ “aw shucks” and “gosh darn” and shoppin’ at Wal-Mart. It sounds like Bristol might be sipping lattes and chomping on arugula as she nurses her baby. What would Joe the Plumber think?! [Photo: GettyImages]
But we thought it was going to last forever! Geri Halliwell has split from her Italian fiancé of three months, proving that celebrities are biologically incapable of going through life’s events at a normal speed. In the time it would have taken “civilians” to think about maybe bringing loverboy back to meet mom and dad, Geri has met Fabrizio Politi, accepted a proposal, wheeled him out around London’s swankiest restaurants with her daughter Bluebell, released a press statement about their engagement and then when the attention slipped for a few weeks when the love finally died, called it a day.
“She loved being in a relationship but decided that all she needs is her daughter Bluebell to keep her happy. Fabrizio is upset but totally respects Geri’s wishes. Her friends are not surprised — Geri has a track record for getting cold feet,” reports The Sun. They make it sound all so ordinary, no? Although we have to confess we’re a little disappointed — we were already rubbing our hands in glee at the thought of the OK! wedding cover (Geri’s Magical Day!) and the “why I left him” mea culpa (Geri: I Had To Be True To Myself). Never mind. Next! [Photo: Splash News Online]
Hang on, hadn’t you two broken up? Simon Cowell and “ex-girlfriend” Terri Seymour looked very cozy together on the red carpet at a fundraiser last night in Hollywood, sparking rumors the two may be back together. Earlier this week, Terri spoke to Britain’s Closer magazine, where she admitted that she’s still working on the renovation of his house, as well as staying in freakishly-close contact.
“Looking after Simon’s a full-time job when you go out with him — and I’m still doing it now! I’m still overseeing and finalizing his new house. I’ve project-managed it all, right down to the furniture. Simon and I speak six times a day, and I see him all the time. We’re happy as we are. We still see each other as much as when we were together,” she said.
Right. That sounds like a healthy break-up to us, giving each other plenty of space to move on and all that. Any new girlfriend/boyfriend of these two is going to have to be VERY understanding. Possibly even blind. [Photo: Splash News Online]
If you’re into shoulder pads and helmet hair, then Ivana Trump‘s a catch. But we never believed that her hunky, young, Italian husband, Rossano Rubicondi, was down with the beehived beauty, and now we know that the couple’s love was as fake as Ivana’s entire face.
Apparently their 2-minute marriage was a total sham, arranged to propel both Ivana and her boy toy back onto the sweet, sweet D-List. “Ivana wanted to be back in the spotlight, and Rossano’s career needed a jump-start, so the two agreed – via a contract – to the nuptials,” revealed a source.
After marrying in April 2008, Rossano starred on a reality TV show where he was caught cheating on his beloved meal ticket. The marriage busted last November, but not before they got the fame they desired. He’s “been sleeping with girls,” while Ivana’s nailing a 22 year old. We wouldn’t exactly call that fame, but hey – they’re not the first to mistake sex with celebrity. Right, Paris and Kim? [Photo: Splash News Online]
Megan Fox isn’t hiding out as her relationship collapses (though we imagine Brian Austin Green is). The actress hit up a Coffee Bean in Los Angeles showing off her belly in a tiny tank top. We’re sure Brian’s getting the message – as is every other horny dude in LA. Somebody’s single! [Photo: Splash News Online]
Super-hot Megan Fox, who baffled the world by dating washed up D-Lister Brian Austin Green for five years, has finally split from the Beverly Hills, 90210 actor. “The relationship had run its course,” an anonymous source close to the pair reveals. “They both realized the time had come to go their separate ways. It’s completely amicable, and they are remaining friends.”
The couple got engaged in 2006, when Fox was just 20 years old. They began dating in 2004, and tattooed each other’s names on their bodies (Megan’s is on her hip), just like every other idiot in Hollywood. The news catapults Megan into the position of most eligible hot girl in all the world, which means it’s time to start taking bets about who she’ll shack up with next. Jason Priestly?
