Why did Scarlett Johansson and Sean Penn suddenly split?
After the starlet didn’t accompany her man to the Cannes Film Festival, gossip hounds began buzzing about a breakup. Then People magazine confirmed Friday that the couple’s red-hot romance had fizzled as quickly as it flared up; reps for both, unsurprisingly, were mum on why.
Might it have something to do with a recent report that Sean was spotted in Cannes taking a hotel elevator upstairs with two hotties ... even though his room was on the ground floor? Just a wild guess.
Has Alex Rodriguez broken the heart of another famous beauty? The Yankees slugger and gal pal Cameron Diaz “broke up a few days ago. He ended it,” a source tells People magazine.
But the on-off couple of a year have split and gotten back together in the past. And evidently the relationship could still end up going into extra innings. The source notes that “they have broken up and gotten back together before, so not sure it’s forever.”
After all, Hollywood is running out of A-list blondes for A-Rod to date!
Kelsey Grammer’s custody battle with ex-wife Camille has taken a nasty turn, according to TMZ. The site has obtained a letter it claims is from the former “Frasier” star’s legal team to his former spouse’s, in which he suggests they each live with one of their two children. Per the proposal, “Kelsey shall have primary physical custody of [son] Jude and Camille shall have primary physical custody of [daughter] Mason.”
According to the report, the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star’s decision to seek primary physical custody of both kids last week was so that they would not be separated.
Kelsey’s rep told TMZ, “Despite the fact that those connected with Camille Grammer seem to be hand delivering confidential documents to TMZ and other media outlets, we will continue not to make public statements about their private matters which can and apparently does beg for misinterpretation.”
Say it ain’t so! Did best “Friends” Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox have a falling-out? The pair, who have been tight since the heyday of their hit sitcom, are said to have squabbled over the status of Courteney’s relationship with “estranged” husband David Arquette.
In light of the separated spouses’ multiple recent appearances together, “Jen thinks Courteney is acting callous by running around with this guy but refusing to file divorce papers,” a source told Us magazine. “Like she’s playing mind games with David.”
But like many of the tabloid tales about Jen, this one turns out to be bogus.
“It’s a complete fabrication,” her rep scoffs to E! “There was no fall[ing] out and Jennifer considers Courteney to be a dear and close friend.”
That’s a relief! Now we can get back to worrying about whether Jen is dating, pregnant or still pining for Brad Pitt.
Gavin and Gwen’s ‘horrific’ Zuma scare
Son Zuma’s fall from a countertop was “horrific,” Gavin Rossdale told “People” after he and wife Gwen Stefani rushed the 2½-year-old to the hospital with a broken arm. “It was one of the worst nights of our lives,” the rocker declared, calling the incident “a freak accident.” Happily, Gavin added, “He’s fine now.”
