So why did Scarlett, Ryan split up anyway?

Is there something in the stars that is making the stars split up? We cannot imagine what went wrong with the latest power couple to throw in the towel: Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds. What, they were too blinded by each other’s beauty?

The current “Sexiest Man Alive” and the screen siren issued a joint statement Tuesday saying, “After long and careful consideration on both our parts, we’ve decided to end our marriage. We entered our relationship with love and it’s with love and kindness we leave it. While privacy isn’t expected, it’s certainly appreciated.” (Sorry, guys, your expectation is correct.)

But seriously, what happened? “The big problem with their relationship is the distance,” a source told Us magazine. “They spent a lot of time apart when they are working. She’s been unhappy for a while.”

The pair reportedly separated just a couple weeks ago, and “they are being very civil about it,” the source said.

However, E! not-so-subtly hinted that flirtation with his “Green Lantern” co-star, Blake Lively, might have played a part in the demise of Ryan’s two-year marriage.

And if that is the case, they are lucky they are actors: The “Gossip Girl” star will be at R.R.’s side for the flick’s upcoming press tour, inviting speculation on their chemistry. You had better believe we will be watching their red-carpet body language closely!

Charlie’s fate

Will Charlie Sheen face criminal charges over his October hotel-room meltdown? There seems to be a slight difference of opinion on the matter.

“There have been no arrests,” an NYPD rep reportedly told E! News. “That case is closed.”

But an attorney for Capri Anderson, the escort who filed criminal charges against the actor, begs to differ.

“I just had a conversation with D.A.’s office and they have assured me it’s still an open investigation,” her Beverly Hills lawyer told the New York Post.

Capri, who is an adult-film star too (what a multitasker!), is said to be cooperating with the district attorney’s investigation. She has accused the “Two and a Half Men” star of assault and harassment, claiming he threatened her, threw furniture and put his hands around her throat.

Team Charlie maintains that the allegations are false, pointing to the fact that Capri never told the cops any of this when they showed up to escort the out-of-control actor to the hospital.

We have no idea what really happened at the Plaza that night — but if Charlie’s track record is any indication, we predict he indeed will not be charged.

Kissing Elin

Elin Nordegren reportedly has a schoolgirl crush — literally. The former Mrs. Tiger Woods is said to have become close with a fellow student at the Florida college where she is enrolled. The U.K.’s Sun reported that he’s a 35-year-old South African.

“There’s been kissing and cuddling, but I don’t know if it’s gone further,” a source told the paper.

According to the National Enquirer, the unnamed dude smooched the mom of two impulsively while walking her to her car on campus.

“It completely took me off guard, but it was very pleasant. I enjoyed it!” the Swedish beauty said later, according to an insider, who added, “She kissed him back.”

Let us hope he is not the type to go around impulsively kissing women at will. We all know Elin has dealt with enough of that!
