Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes Divorcing..

As Tom Cruise's relationship with Katie Holmes grinds toward divorce, tabloids and the rumor mill are pointing at his devout adherence to the Church of Scientology as a primary cause for their breakup.. 

According to her prenuptial agreement with Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes could be awarded up to $3 million for each year of marriage

According to TMZ, Katie Holmes is seeking primary custody of her daughter Suri and has requested “a suitable amount” of child support from her husband Tom Cruise in divorce papers filed on Thursday.

High-profile celebrity couple Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise are divorcing after five years of marriage, People magazine has reported. It was a marriage that started in an Italian castle and endured through years of hit movies, controversial couch jumping and clashes over Scientology.

A representative for Cruise told People that Holmes filed the divorce, leaving Cruise “deeply saddened.”
Now, however, the couple must come to grips with the details of dissolving one of Hollywood’s most famous unions. Holmes, 33, should expect to receive a substantial settlement from her soon-to-be-former husband. According to the terms of their 2006 prenuptial agreement, the actress is entitled to about $15 million.
In the event of a divorce, the document states, Holmes would be awarded $3 million for each year that she and Cruise, 49, were married — up to a possible $33 million. She will also receive the couple’s home in Montecito, Calif., MSNBC reported in 2006. If their marriage had lasted more than 11 years, Holmes would have received half of Cruise’s reportedly $250 million fortune.
Their separation could lead to a legal battle over custody of their 6-year-old daughter Suri, although both sides have stated that Suri’s welfare is their highest concern.
Holmes’ parents originally wanted her to avoid marrying Cruise, a tipster told the Scoop magazine in 2006, but then changed their minds. “If she walks now, Tom will fight her for custody of [Suri], and Katie can’t outlast him in court,” an insider told the Scoop in 2006. “She knows she needs to marry him to get the money to fight him for custody, if it comes to that.”
If Holmes wins custody of their daughter, the child-support payments she’s entitled to could prove sizable. When model Linda Evangelista split with her French billionaire boyfriend earlier this year, a court awarded her $550,000 in annual child-support payments.

Lauryn Hill pleads guilty faces jail time...

NEWARK, N.J. -- Eight-time Grammy-winning singer Lauryn Hill pleaded guilty Friday to not paying federal taxes on more than $1.5 million earned over three years.
Appearing in U.S. District Court in Newark, Hill admitted failing to file tax returns from 2005 to 2007. She faces a maximum one-year sentence on each of the three counts. She was charged three weeks ago.
Dressed in a dark jacket, white button-up shirt and a long reddish-orange skirt, Hill declined to comment after Friday's hearing. During the hearing, attorney Nathan Hochman indicated that Hill planned to pay back the taxes she owes.
U.S. Magistrate Michael Shipp initially scheduled sentencing for early October but agreed to delay it until late November to give Hill time to make repayment.
Hill admitted she didn't pay taxes on about $818,000 earned in 2005, $222,000 in 2006 and $761,000 in 2007. The money was earned by four corporations she owned.
The 37-year-old South Orange resident got her start with The Fugees and began her solo career in 1998 with the critically acclaimed album "The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill."
She then largely disappeared from public view to raise her six children, five of whom she had with Rohan Marley, the son of famed reggae singer Bob Marley.
After the charges were brought, Hill posted a long statement on her Tumblr page that decried pop culture's "climate of hostility, false entitlement, manipulation, racial prejudice, sexism and ageism." She explained that she hasn't paid taxes since she withdrew from society to guarantee the safety and well-being of herself and her family.
Hill hinted Friday that she might expand on those comments at her sentencing. When Shipp asked her if anyone had directly or indirectly influenced her decision to plead guilty, she replied, "Indirectly, I've been advised my ability to speak out directly is for another time, at sentencing."

Kim Kardashian celebrates 2 million Instagram fans by stripping..

When many people talk about android application Instagram, one thing that seems to always end up being talked about are the number of women who use the app to take photos of their breasts. As a way of proving the point, Kim Kardashian has celebrated gaining two million Instagram fans by poster a picture of herself in her underwear.
The reality star tweeted, “Thanks to all you 2million sexy beasts out there for following me on Instagram! So here's a little present of instagram,”

In other Kardashian news the star’s relationship with Kanye West seems to be going strong, with a source quoted in the Sun today as saying, “Kim's desperate to show Kanye she's not some kind of bimbo, so she's reading up on Nietzsche as Kanye says he's a huge inspiration of his. She's making sure she reads the papers and the news every day and has downloaded the CNN app on her phone to keep up to the minute.”

Naked Rihanna bares her bum in raunchy Esquire shoot..

Just when you think you’ve seen all Rihanna has to offer, and have had all the raunchiness you can take, the girl just has to take it to another level.
The sexy Bajan appears naked on the cover of the new edition of Esquire, and it’s easy to see why she called her new perfume Nude.
The new photoshoot gives Ri-Ri’s fans everything they could possibly want, including a series of pouty shots and a good look at her famous rear.
While the singer’s career seems to be going from strength to strength, her personal life is not so certain as rumours have been rife that the singer is dating Drake, especially since the pair were seen recently out and about in Miami getting cosy and partying into the early hours.
The singer posted on Twitter recently a hint that all may not be entirely rosy in the relationship, saying, “Any other signs have an opening? #Holla this Pisces s*** is not working out", in relation to her horoscope on the day.
Rihanna displays her wears in the July edition of Esquire.
People can talk all they want about pop singer Rihanna, because she is not listening!
The sexy vixen was recently interviewed by Esquire magazine and confessed that she no longer cares about the bad things people say about her.
“Who wants to be bashed everyday of their f**king lives? I’ve learned to live my life with the blinders on," she said.

John Travolta in talks for a settlement in sexual battery case

John Travolta in talks for a settlement in sexual battery case...

The 'Hairspray' actor has been the subject of accusations from a number of male masseurs, with two filing lawsuits against him, and though the proceedings were later dropped, his legal representatives are said to be working on a financial agreement with one of the men.

A source told "John Travolta's lawyer is currently in settlement talks with one of the accusers. The goal is to have a settlement reached very quietly and quickly because John just wants this scandal to go away.

"No money has been paid yet, but it's almost a done deal. It will be an out of court settlement and John Travolta's name won't even be in the agreement to ensure complete confidentiality, along with a clause that states if the man ever goes public with his story, he will be sued for at least twice the amount of the settlement."
The accuser currently in negotiations with John's team claim he was groped by the actor within the last two years, which is within the limitations of being able to file a civil lawsuit, which he is prepared to do if a settlement isn't reached.
The source added: "If the accuser who is in talks with John's lawyer right now is unable to reach a settlement, he is absolutely prepared to file a lawsuit against him.
"The man isn't intimidated by John's celebrity status and just wants the actor to be held accountable for his actions."
John - who has children Ella Bleu, 12, and 18-month-old Benjamin with wife Kelly Preston - has vehemently denied the allegations against him.
