Fresh off his split from Pamela Anderson, rocker Kid Rock has moved on to model May Andersen (an ex of “Jackass” star Steve-O). The couple attended Elton John’s 60th birthday concert together Sunday, the day after they were spotted by paparazzi in NYC holding hands and looking lovey-dovey. Awww.
Sex-crime charge pushes Judd to split
Wynonna is devastated but plans to move on.
‘Devastated” country star Wynonna Judd has filed for divorce from her husband, Dan Roach — after Tennessee authorities charged him with three counts of aggravated sexual battery against a minor under the age of 13.
Dan, who wed the singer in 2003, had been in rehab undergoing treatment for drug and alcohol addiction since Feb. 21; per court documents, the couple separated a few days prior to that date.
The details of the disturbing allegations have not been released, but a police spokesperson told the Tennessean, “the indictment is the result of an investigation by the Metro Police Department’s sex crimes unit that began in late February of this year.”
“I am obviously devastated,” Wynonna acknowledged to fans via her Web site. “Our family will pull together, begin the healing process and hopefully — by the grace of God — become stronger. We will move forward with our faith, family and our friends to find resolution to this difficult situation.”
It’s official: Musician James Blunt and model Petra Nemcova have parted ways. After dating for a little over a year, they reportedly broke up in February.
“They split up last month but remain really good friends,” James’ rep confirmed. (Don’t you just love how all celeb ex-couples “remain friends?”)
A pal reportedly told U.K.’s The Sun that James “told her it wasn’t working out and that it was best to make a clean break. … He and Petra didn’t get to spend enough time together because their careers have kept them on different sides of the globe for much of the time.”
News of the split comes hot on the heels of buzz that the “Beautiful” singer was sighted partying with Lindsay Lohan, heading back to her place.
But The Sun source claims, “James was one of a group of about 30 people who went back to Lindsay’s house for a party. There’s nothing going on between them.”
Coincidentally, Lindsay recently told People, “I’m dating. I’m really happy and I’m having fun.” But she wouldn’t name the lucky guy she’s seeing. Hmmm.

Fashion designer Donatella Versace announced that her 20-year-old daughter, Allegra, is seriously ill with anorexia. The young heiress’ gaunt appearance had recently aroused concern.
Wednesday, in a joint statement with husband Paul Beck (from whom she is legally separated), Donatella confirmed, “Our daughter, Allegra, has been battling anorexia, a very serious disease, for many years. She is receiving the best medical care possible to help overcome this illness and is responding well.
“As parents, we are doing our best to protect our daughter. However, due to numerous media reports, we want to let everyone know that we appreciate their concern for Allegra, and we ask that her privacy be respected at this time.”
No doubt this revelation will put fresh scrutiny on the fashion industry’s painfully-thin body standards.
Anna’s Last Days
Although the death of Anna Nicole Smith was ruled an accidental overdose, with a flu and infected abscess as contributing causes, some are wondering how Anna’s nearest and dearest — notably, her partner Howard K. Stern — could have seen her in that condition and not sought medical attention.
But a statement released by Howard’s attorney Monday claims that Anna was determined to sleep off her 105-degree fever rather than go to the hospital as he and her friends urged, because “she did not want the media frenzy that follows her.”
The late model and reality star “refused to go to the hospital because she wanted to avoid media,” Howard’s lawyer insisted. “Anna called the shots in Anna’s life and everyone close to her knows that.”
