Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom are insisting that their made-for-TV wedding was the real deal. Yet multiple reports claim the pair aren’t legitimately married yet, and they won’t sign papers to make the union legal until their attorneys finish hammering out a pre-nup. Ah, young love.
According to Radar Online, the talks have barely even started. “Neither side has set forth to the opposing side things to be included in the pre-nup,” a pal of Lamar said. “They are only in the beginning stages of talks, but everything is moving forward, with no red flags from either Khloe or Lamar.”
The friend adds that the pre-nup is expected to be finalized within the “next several weeks,” and the couple are “very much in love.”
But that may not keep Lamar from playing hardball with his new bride, his camp tells TMZ. The L.A. Laker is said to be determined not to sign away half his assets to the reality starlet — neither those he brings into the marriage nor his future earnings.
Well now, doesn’t this sound like the start of a beautiful future for two people destined to spend the rest of their lives together?
The Kids Are Alright?
The war between Jon and Kate Gosselin continues getting uglier and uglier. The latest: The reality-show dad is defending himself against his ex-wife’s accusations that he looted their bank account, insisting it never happened. And though Kate says their eight kids were distraught to find out production of their TLC show had halted (on Jon’s orders), he maintains that can’t possibly be so.
“You know why? Because when we told them we were going to get divorced, the 5-year-old said, ‘What’s for lunch?’ The only two people who really cared were Mady and Cara” — the couple’s twin 9-year-old daughters — Jon told “Entertainment Tonight.”
We have to wonder how Jon can even claim to know how his kids are feeling. Between paid event appearances and talk-show appearances, when does he even see them?
Dancing With the Exes
It must be tough to work with your ex-fiancee day after day … especially when she’s gyrating around sexily with another man, in skimpy, sparkly outfits. So we applaud dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy for being candid and not pretending he’s fine with “Dancing With the Stars” castmate Karina Smirnoff.
Though Karina recently maintained that the two — who broke off their engagement just last month — are on good terms, Maksim begs to differ. Asked by Life & Style magazine whether he’s still friends with his former love, he responded bluntly, “No.”
A celeb actually admitted to not staying friends with his ex?
Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo are definitely back on — but that doesn’t mean they want to rub it in his other ex’s face. Yes, we’re talking about Jessica Simpson (who is rapidly overtaking Jennifer Aniston’s status as unlucky-in-love poster girl).
The former boy bander and the former VJ, who recently reignited their romance, were “whispering and kissing” at a party at Las Vegas’ Tao on Friday, per Page Six sources. But they “refused to be photographed together and insisted on leaving through a side door to avoid a scene as Jessica was arriving in Vegas to celebrate her sister Ashlee’s birthday.”
Why do we get the feeling sometimes that the celeb scene is like one big high school dance?
