Another Three Bite the Dust

Hollyweird just sent three couples on a trip to splitzville.  Peep the details below:

Laura and Ben…

Singer Ben Harper has slapped his wife of 5 years, Laura Dern, with divorce papers.  He’s citing irreconcilable differences and asking that Laura be denied spousal support.  He also wants joint legal and physical custody of their two kids, Ellery, 9, and Jaya, 5.

He says that they’ve been separated since January but a friend says that Laura had no idea this was coming and the couple has done the deed as recently as last week. Source

I hope this doesn’t get nasty for the sake of the kids.  I feel bad with Laura.  First Billy Bob, now this.

Courtney and David…


Courrtney Cox and David Arquette have been married for over ten years and have a daughter named Coco, are getting separating.  They released a joint statement saying:

“The reason for this separation is to better understand ourselves and the qualities we need in a partner and for our marriage.”

A source said this wasn’t a surprise to her ‘Cougar Town’ coworkers.  They say, “It was clear to those working on the set that something was going on with her marriage.

“They just jumped in – basically stole it – and took off to meet friends across the street for drinks,” an onlooker said. “They seemed to have a lot of fun together… they were always chummy.” Source

I never got these two in the first place.  Maybe it’s just me.  At least it looks like they’re splitting on a friendly note.

Christina and Jordan…


Us Weekly says these two have been separated for months.  And a source reveals “they are now living apart, and they will see how that goes.

 “They were very much in love,” explains the insider. “But over the last six months, it ­became clear they were more like friends than husband and wife.”The source adds that Aguilera even “­proposed their August trip to Italy to ­rekindle their relationship, but it didn’t help.

Hopefully their son Max won’t suffer.

 “He is their main concern,” says the pal.

“Christina is doing her best to be a great mom,” says the insider. “She has a lot to ­juggle, but she’s learning how to make it work and balance it all.” Source

Wow, I could have sworn she was just saying (like five minutes ago) how happy she was with Jordan.
