Scoop: Avril’s marriage to Deryck may be over

Rumors have been swirling for a while that Avril Lavigne and Deryck Whibley are on the rocks. Now, a new report claims the punk-pop pair’s marriage of three years is over.

“She dumped him and told him she was leaving him,” a source told Us magazine. “She wants to move on. Divorce papers will be filed any day now.”

The “Complicated” singer is said to have kicked the Sum 41 rocker out of their Bel Air mansion. Deryck, 29, is evidently “crushed” that his 25-year-old wife is over him.

Pity. If Avril is going to end a long-term relationship, we’d rather it be with her stylist.

Patrick’s Courage

Actor Patrick Swayze, who passed away Monday after a brave battle with pancreatic cancer, will get a posthumous chance to tell the world just how brave he was when his memoir is released later this month. The “Dirty Dancing” star’s “Time of My Life,” penned with wife of 34 years Lisa Niemi, recalls his strength in the face of adversity.

“All throughout this book, you get a sense of how courageous he was and what physical strength he had and what kind of emotional energy he had to put toward this,” the book’s publisher said on “Today.”

In the autobiography, Patrick recalls his reaction when he was first told that he had the disease: “My doctor told me my chances of surviving for more than a few months weren’t high, and I had no reason to doubt him.”

“I began thinking to myself, I’ve had more lifetimes than any 10 people put together, and it’s been an amazing ride,” he continues. “So this is OK.”

Patrick’s memoir is also a testament to his love for high school sweetheart Lisa: He rhapsodizes, “I’ve loved you forever, I love you now and I will love you forevermore.”

Lovely words to remember him by.

Jon: Nanny Man?

Yet another woman has come forward to claim that she had an affair with Jon Gosselin. Stephanie Santoro, 23, a nanny who has worked for the dad of eight, says he seduced her with the immortal words, “Let’s hang out. We can go hang out in the hot tub and talk more about everything.”

In the aforementioned tub, Jon allegedly proceeded to sweep her off her feet with the sweet nothing, “Well, I guess we can kiss just once.”

Stephanie says they were intimate nine times (not that she was counting) but that the physical pleasure was less a factor than the, um, emotional connection they felt: “If you care about someone, it’s not about how good they are in bed.” Especially if they’re famous, presumably.

Lindsay: Diva?

“Mean Girls” star Lindsay Lohan allegedly engaged in some diva behavior at a recent NYC Fashion Week appearance. Hey, the girl knows how to keep her name in the press!

At the G-Star fashion show Tuesday night, a source told Page Six, the actress “copped an attitude by refusing to pose for photos, and she had to be dragged into the press line.”

Then “Lindsay decided she wasn’t happy with the seating arrangements. She began taking the seating cards for celebrities like Juliette Lewis and Christian Siriano and moving them or throwing them on the floor,” says the insider. When the show’s organizers appeared to stop her, La Linds allegedly snapped, “Don’t [expletive] touch me,” then “rolled her eyes and continued moving the place cards.”
