Scoop: Jon Gosselin halts divorce from Kate

After declaring that he “despises” estranged wife Kate and that his new girlfriend Hailey Glassman is his “soulmate,” Jon Gosselin is apparently doing a major 180. The reality star reportedly announced to In Touch magazine that he’s had a change of heart about his divorce, and is filing papers with an arbitrator to suspend proceedings for 90 days.

“I regret my conduct since Kate and I separated,” the dad of eight confided to the tabloid.

(Note, however, that he blames Kate for his Casanova ways, saying, “When Kate broke up with me, I begged her to go with me to counseling. She was totally against it. I think I was reacting to the pain I have been suffering as a result of Kate’s rejection of me.”)

“Even though we were heading for a divorce, it appeared that Kate had been suffering from this divorce as much as I had,” Jon explained.

We can’t help but note that this announcement came on the same day TLC changed the title of the hit show that made the Gosselins famous to simply “Kate Plus 8.” Does Jon really want to be a more involved parent … or does he just want to hang on to his piece of the pie? 

J.Love Spurned?

Jennifer Love Hewitt is clearly out of boyfriend Jamie Kennedy’s league … so would he really push his luck by cheating on her? Blogger Perez Hilton cited “impeccable sources” revealing that the funnyman stepped out with ex-girlfriend Shannon Funk, a former Britney Spears assistant.

But Jamie declared on Twitter that the claim was “untrue and slanderous.” And his rep followed up with a statement saying, “This is a completely fabricated story made up by a disgruntled former employee, terminated for cause.”

OK, fine. Well, we still think she’s out of his league.

DJ AM: Suicide?

When news emerged that Adam “DJ AM” Goldstein was found dead a month ago with eight undigested Oxycontin pills in his stomach, many speculated that the troubled turntablist had resorted to suicide. But the New York medical examiner’s office determined his death accidental, due to a combination of medications.   

“We’ve done the testing and investigation in conjunction with the NYPD and in our opinion this was an accidental overdose rather than suicide,” a spokeswoman for the office told People magazine.

The drugs in 32-year-old AM’s system included cocaine, oxycodone, hydrocodone, Ativan, Xanax, Klonopin, Benadryl, and Levamisole (which cocaine is sometimes cut with). A crack pipe was also found by his body. If not an intentional suicide, willfully self-destructive behavior to be sure.
