Scoop: Trust issues behind Kate and A-Rod split

Man, it appears all the news today is about breakups — how depressing! A source confirms to People magazine that Kate Hudson and Alex Rodriguez have gone their separate ways: “They’ve been broken up for a couple of weeks.”

The recently parted duo “both seem totally fine,” adds the source. “They decided to move on.”

But the insider suggests, “They may not be done working it out, though,” and other sources concur.

“They’re broken up for the moment,” a pal of the “Nine” star explained to Life & Style magazine. “Kate has some trust issues with A-Rod. She doesn’t know for sure if there is another woman, but there’s a girl she thinks he has a crush on. She’s been worrying about other women for a while and is definitely the jealous type.”

We can’t imagine why anyone dating a famous athlete would possibly worry about him sneaking around with other women.

 

Gyllenspoon: Over?

Though their reps continue to maintain they’re together, it’s looking more and more like Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal have called it quits. Breakup reports first surfaced after Thanksgiving, and now E! claims they officially split two weeks ago.

“They needed time to figure it out and they were on different coasts,” one source explained. “When they were finally together, they talked it out and decided they’re not going to be together anymore.”

“The relationship just ended. It just fizzled,” said a second insider. “But they also wanted to be careful and private about it because of Reese’s kids.”

But while an Us magazine source echoes that “no one cheated. There was no drama,” another says that “it broke his heart” that Reese wasn’t ready to commit to Jake fully. Evidently, the divorcee and mom of two “felt pressured to wed again but she wasn’t ready. She couldn’t give Jake enough and she got cold feet. Jake wanted all of her.”

Sounds like drama to us.

 

Tiger tell-all book on way

The Tiger Woods story, or shall we say stories — unauthorized versions by his various paramours — may be coming to your local bookstore soon.

Following the golf great’s explosive cheating scandal, some of the ladies involved are planning to write tell-all books, according to Life & Style magazine.

Among those hoping to capitalize on their fame is Hollywood madam Michelle Braun, who says she helped provide Tiger with paid escorts.

Jamie Jungers, one of Tiger’s long-term mistresses, told Life & Style she “won’t rule out anything at this stage.”

The book-publishing world also is making plans, according to celebrity author Ian Halperin, who has written about Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, and Michael Jackson.

“Several publishers have contacted me to crash-write a book about Tiger,” Halperin says. Though he couldn’t accept the project due to previous commitments, he adds, “Editors at major publishing houses are frantically trying to find writers to write books about Tiger. From my understanding, at least three books will emerge in the next six months.”
