HOLLYWOOD GOSSIP

Tuesday, August 4th, 2015

Another favorite Hollywood couple has called it quits.

Gwen Stefani has filed for divorce from husband Gavin Rossdale after 13 years of marriage, E! News confirms.

"While the two of us have come to the mutual decision that we will no longer be partners in marriage, we remain partners in parenthood and are committed to jointly raising our three sons in a happy and healthy environment," the couple said in a statement. "To that end, we respectfully request privacy from the media during this time."

The singer has cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split, and is asking for joint custody of the couple's three kids—9-year-old Kingston, 6-year-oldZuma and 1-year-old Apollo, according to court documents obtained by E! News.

Rossdale filed his response at the same time, and he's also asking for joint custody. Gwen checked the box to terminate Gavin's ability for spousal support.

The heartbreaking news comes on the heels of what appears to be a span of time spent apart.

Stefani recently shared photos from a mini getaway to Montana with her sons, and while it was unclear whether or not Rossdale joined in on the vacation at the time, it seems as though the Bush frontman wasn't present because his Instagram suggests he was in London.

Rossdale slammed split reports last year when tabloids began speculating that the couple were on the outs, calling them a "load of bulls--t."

"I'm pretty dry and I've got a decent sense of humor, so [reporters] say to me, ‘You're doing this, you've got a new record...'How do you guys find time for each other?'" he recalled while on The Howard Stern Show. "And I said, ‘We don't, that's why we've been together so long.' I was f--king around, that's funny to me. Where I'm from, that's funny. And it was funny, for about a week, and then it's like, ‘oh...interesting.' So it's just me and my big mouth."

Meanwhile, Stefani gushed about her hubby in Cosmopolitan's March issue, telling the mag, "I never really saw myself landing a guy that hot. I don't know if I was a nerd in high school, but I definitely wasn't the super-cute cheerleader so I never saw myself getting somebody like that."

Though the "Baby Don't Lie" singer admitted that her husband is "quite handsome," the mother of three boys added, "It's not the most important thing about him, but it is nice...and he makes really cute babies!"

And when it came to what made their marriage work, she responded, "We go through so much together—it's a miracle that we could stay together this long."

She continued, "[Gavin's] on a short tour right now, and he wrote me the sweetest note this morning. It's good to have those days when we both do our own things. I think that's what keeps relationships going, when both people can be themselves and have their own individuality.

"That's especially important for women," Stefani added. "It's hard to find time for yourself."

"To be with one person for a very long time actually gets more interesting,"Rossdale told E! News at The Bling Ring premiere in 2013. "I'm into that. She's a great girl. I'm lucky."

 

 

Talk about a double dose of good news! 

Zooey Deschanel has welcomed a healthy, beautiful baby girl with Jacob Pechenik, her rep confirmed to E! News exclusively Monday afternoon. And that's not the only bit of excitement...

The New Girl star's rep also confirmed that the pair recently got married in a super-secret ceremony! 

That's quite the double whammy from the couple, who have strived to maintain their privacy throughout their engagement and road to parenthood. In fact, fans of the couple didn't get a clear view of the actress' diamond engagement ring until March.

One of Deschanel's most recent late-night appearances was also back in March, when she was understandably asked about the big baby news. The actress totally played it cool.

"I'm pregnant?" she asked as she pretended to be caught off-guard. "No, I knew I was pregnant." But what she truly had no idea about was whether or not her new addition would be a boy or a girl.

"We are going to be surprised," she told Jimmy Kimmel. "It's more fun, you know? Make it into a game."

That doesn't mean they didn't almost find out along the way.

"The last time [they went to the doctor[, the technician was like, 'Just so you know, I always use the pronoun he. That's my habit,'" she recalled. "She set it up because we were paranoid. We didn't want to find out."

As for Deschanel's new marital status, details remain under wraps about when the wedding ceremony took place.

E! News did confirm, however, that Pechenik popped the question on Jan. 17, which was also his wife-to-be's birthday. The happy couple spent their date on Catalina Island.

This is Deschanel's second marriage, the actress having divorced Death Cab for Cutie vocalist Ben Gibbard in 2012. The couple are currently working on the upcoming film titled Rock the Kasbah, which also stars Bruce WillisBill Murrayand Taylor Kinney.

Congratulations to the proud parents on all of their major life events! 

 

 

After 15 years, Dr. Dre decided to go back into the studio to record his "finale" album Compton: The Soundtrack.

In Dre's weekly show The Pharmacy With Dr. Dre, which aired Saturday afternoon on Beats 1 radio, Dre got real with friends Ice Cube and Straight Outta Comptondirector F. Gary Gray.

"I found myself being so inspired by the movie that I started recording an album," Dre said of his new record Compton: The Soundtrack. "It's inspired by Straight Outta Compton, and I'm really proud of this."

"Ice Cube is on the album. Kendrick Lamar is on the record, Eminem is on the record, Snoop Dogg is on the record. All my friends came in, old and new. I worked with a lot of new and exciting musicians, producers, singers, rappers. And we all came together to build this thing, and it's going to be my grand finale. The record is crazy."

Dre was worried about the film at first, saying he never thought it could be done because there were so many things that could go wrong. But Gray did it right, he says.

"The heart and the emotion is there. You come to understand who we are as people, and what it took to make this s--t happen," Dre notes. "It's more than just the music, I think the music is the co-star in the movie, and our characters, being able to understand who we are and what it took to get this thing done, I think people are really going to gravitate towards that and really appreciate it, and be inspired by it as well."

"I kept it under wraps," Dre says of the recording. "But now the album is finished—it's bananas."

Compton: The Soundtrack will be exclusively available on Apple Music Aug. 7.

 

 

Gwen Stefani pulled the plug on her 13-year marriage to Gavin Rossdale because she believed he was cheating on her. 

We're told Gwen and Gavin have not gotten along for some time. As one source put it, the split was "a long time coming."

We're told Gwen complained about Gavin being away from home too much, touring with his band Bush from December 2014 through March 2015. One source says Gwen put pressure on him to stop touring and stay home. For his part, he felt it she was hypocritical because she was on the road too.  

Our sources say Gavin is a very good father, so both sides are seeking a joint custody arrangement. 

As TMZ first reported ... Gwen filed for divorce Monday.

 

 

 

The people who run Michael Jackson's Estate are considering opening up the family home in Encino, CA to tourists ... the home where MJ recorded his biggest hits, including "Billie Jean."

Sources familiar with the situation tell us, the Estate is noodling the idea of Hollywood tour buses and individuals making the trek to the property and then taking a room-by-room tour.

After Michael bought the house for his family, he tore it down and then built a new one, which included a recording studio where he laid down the tracks for "Billie Jean," "We Are the World," "Beat It," "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough," and many others.

Michael also built a 2-story wing which served as his separate living quarters.

Our sources say nothing's in cement ... the Estate is currently exploring the idea and also checking to see if the zoning laws would allow it and if not, whether they could get a variance. 

 

 

50 Cent's financial woes are coming into focus ... because new financial docs show G-Unit Records and G-Unit Brands have cost 50 more than $10 million over the last three years. 

According to new documents filed as part of 50's bankruptcy, the two branches of G-Unit have been in the red each of the last three years -- $10.45 million in losses. The silver lining ... they've done better this year ... they're still losing dough, but not as much.

The documents reveal a few other 50 financial tidbits. 50 is currently paying child support to Daphne Joy for their young son, Sire ... and the docs say by the time the kid hits 18 ... he'll have paid out $832,600.

50 says he has more than $15 million in personal property, which does not include houses. And get this ... he has $2.7 million in his checking account.

50's monthly expenses include $5,000/month for gardening, $1,500 for pool maintenance and $9,000/month for security.   

 

 

Kim Richards spent the night in jail after getting arrested for shoplifting Sunday night ... TMZ has confirmed.

The former 'Real Housewife' was booked into jail around 7:30 PM after store security called LAPD to a Target in the Valley. Law enforcement tells us a security guard nabbed her for allegedly scooping up a "bunch of items" worth more than $600.

Richards got out of the pokey on Monday afternoon. Her bail was $5,000. It's unclear if she was under the influence at the time of this latest arrest. She was also busted in April for allegedly making a drunken scene at the Beverly Hills hotel.

That arrested led to a rehab stint that just ended a few weeks ago.

As TMZ first reported, Kim's kinda on her own now ... since sister Kyle Richards and her husband are trying the tough love route after Kim went on a bender at her daughter's wedding.

 

 

Will Smith says the stories he's getting a divorce are BS.

But he decided to join in the foolishness, and said, "In the interest of redundant, repetitious, over & over again-ness ... Jada and I are NOT GETTING A DIVORCE!!!!!!!!!!:-)"

And he added this ... "I promise you all - if I ever decide to divorce my Queen - I SWEAR I'll tell you myself!"

He ended with "#Dumb People Should Have to Wear Scarlet D's."

Jada then tweeted, "My king has spoken."

Liam Payne Was "Shocked" to Learn One Direction's Louis Tomlinson Is Expecting a Baby With Briana Jungwirth. Liam Payne was "shocked" to learn that Louis Tomlinson is going to be a father. Speaking to Magic Radio's Jo Parkerson Monday, the One Direction singer recalled his reaction, saying, "Well, obviously I was a bit shocked, but he's taken super well to it." He also called L.A.-based stylist Briana Jungwirth a "lovely girl." How does Tomlinson feel about becoming a dad? "He's very excited with what's going on with him at the moment and I feel that stuff like that happens sometimes," Payne said of the 23-year-old singer. "He's taking it very seriously." In the interview, Payne also discussed Zayn Malik's sudden departure. "I haven't spoken to him recently and he's off doing his own thing and taking his time," Payne said of Malik, who recently signed a solo recording contract with RCA Records. "It is a difficult thing to leave the band, but his heart wasn't in it," he said. "You have to go with your heart and say, 'I can't do this anymore' and 'There is something out there that I do want to do that is different,' and that's fine." Malik gave the quartet props for its latest single, "Drag Me Down," via Twitter over the weekend, and Payne is excited to see what his ex-bandmate will do next. "I'm dead excited to hear some of his stuff. I did a lot of work with him in the studio when he was in the band. We used to stay up late and do rap stuff which is quite interesting, 'cause I like to produce rap beats and stuff," he said. "He's got a great voice and he's a very talented young man and we wish him all the best of luck." Might Payne, 21, ever go his own way? "I'm more interested in the writing side of things, if I'm honest," he said. "I like writing songs for different artists and crafting a song is a really beautiful thing to do. I sit down and do it with my girlfriend [Sophia Smith] sometimes and with a couple of lads that I know. I much prefer doing that sort of thing. I love being in the band. I don't know if I could do it by myself now; it's all too comfortable." (Eonline)
