Hollywood Gossip: Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner divorcing

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are reportedly heading for a divorce after almost 10 years of marriage.


The actor couple - who have three children together, Violet, 10, Seraphina, six, and Samuel, three - are reportedly considering splitting after nearly 10 years of marriage, and the '13 Going On 30' star has been seeing a therapist to deal with the breakup.

A source said: "Jen has actually been preparing herself emotionally for this divorce for some time.

"She sees a therapist to learn how to cope with the divorce, and how to deal with the kids after they split. She'll take custody of them."

The couple, whose 10-year anniversary is coming up on 29 June, haven't been seen together in public for a month, and Ben, 42, has been spotted without his wedding ring in Canada while Jennifer celebrated her 43rd birthday on 17 April without him, but with her friends who think the 'Gone Girl' star is a "horrible fit".



Speaking to Radar Online, the source said: "Often, when Ben and Jen have a problem, they just agree to ride it out and be miserable together until they can get some time apart," the insider revealed.

"Jennifer has close friends who think that she and Ben are a horrible fit, despite how much he loves being a father to those kids."

Janet Jackson husband Wissam Al Mana threw her a surprise party

Janet Jackson's husband Wissam Al Mana threw her a surprise party for her 49th birthday in Los Angeles earlier this month.

Wissam Al Mana, who secretly married the 'Together Again' hitmaker in 2012 after two years of dating, organised a special celebration in her honour at Hyde Lounge in Los Angeles to mark the occasion on May 16.
A source told Us Weekly magazine: "Thirty of her closest friends and family were there."

The businessman, 40, initially pretended he was taking Janet out for a romantic sushi dinner so she was amazed to be greeted by so many of her loved ones instead, including her brother Jermaine Jackson.
The insider added the group partied until 1.30am and enjoyed "two beautiful cakes."

Janet previously insisted she didn't mind that Wissam is almost a decade younger than her.
The singer - who once had a seven-year relationship with music producer Jermaine Dupri - said: "My mother always raised us to believe that age was just a number. All of us - my sisters, my brothers - we'll just tell you our ages because it's all about where you are mentally and how you feel about yourself. It doesn't matter."

The 'Love Will Never Do' hitmaker is currently gearing up to release her next album and is also said to be planning to launch a world tour later this year.
This will be the R&B singer's 11th studio LP and her first since 2008's 'Discipline', which was released on Island Records.

Hamilton moves on, Nicole Scherzinger adjusting

Nicole Scherzinger is going through "a very transformative time" in her life following her split from Lewis Hamilton last February.


The 'Don't Hold Your Breath' hitmaker, who split from Formula One racing driver Lewis Hamilton in February after seven years together, believes they will eventually reunite if they are truly meant to be together, but is currently trying to focus on herself.

She said: "I think it's hard. I think sometimes people stay in relationships because they get complacent, because it's comfortable for them, because they don't want to be alone. For me, what's helped me to get through this is I'm quite a spiritual person. It's grounded me and I realise I do have a great purpose in life.

"If relationships or people in your life are meant to be, then they will come back around, but that shouldn't be what is holding you back from your ultimate destiny."

Asked if she has any advice for getting through a breakup, she told PEOPLE.com: "Focus on yourself. Because a lot of the times when you're in a relationship, you lose yourself and you lose who you are are, what makes you so special in your own light. You are always putting the energy on someone else. Build yourself back up again. Do what you want to do."

The 36-year-old beauty's heartbreak has inspired a lot of her new music.

She said: "Now it's a new chapter in my life, I'm going through a very transformative time in my life in relationships, so I think there is a lot of be said and sung about that. I think people can relate to that in a real way, when you go through, like, the desert and then walking towards something new."

While Nicole is still single, Lewis, 30, is currently on holiday in Monaco, France with models Kendall Jenner, 19, and Gigi Hadid, 20.

Nicki Minaj and beau have no plans to wed

Nicki Minaj's boyfriend Meek Hill says they have no plans "to get married yet" despite giving her a 15-carat diamond ring last month.


The 28-year-old rapper presented the 32-year-old star with a 15-carat heart-shaped white and yellow diamond ring last month, but insists they aren't engaged.

Asked about their relationship, the 'Amen' hitmaker said: "It's definitely real. But it ain't really time to get married yet. We're still learning each other, feeling each other out."

The 'Anaconda' hitmaker, who split from Safaree Samuels in late 2014 after 12 years of dating, caused a frenzy when she posted a photograph of the ring on her Instagram profile in April, shortly after writing: "I wish every night could feel like last night."

Meek told The Fader magazine that his grandmother was also convinced they were preparing to tie the knot because "whatever she sees on TV, she believes."

The couple initially denied they were dating when they were first linked in December, but Meek - whose real name is Robert Rahmeek Williams - later confessed he was smitten with Nicki.

He said: "Yeah, that's my baby right there. S**t real. Yeah, I tell her that. I'm like, 'I don't really hold hands, but like, I'll hold hands with you.' She know that.

"Like, I don't really do things, but certain people make you do certain little stuff and it be like, 'S**t, I don't care.' They can catch me in the pictures doing anything nowadays, holding an umbrella for Nicki, you know what I'm saying? I got the girl that I wanted, not what they wanted, you know what I'm saying? What I wanted."

Calvin Klein buys $30m Hollywood property

Calvin Klein has reportedly splashed out $30 million on a brand new home in the Hollywood hills after selling his property in Miami.


The fashion designer has reportedly splashed out the huge sum on a "glass box" in Los Angeles after selling his property in Miami, Florida.

He said: "It's a glass box up in the hills. I'm not going to say this is my dream house, but it's a place I can have a lot of fun in and that I can escape to."

Calvin, 72, grew to love the view from high up in the Hollywood Hills after spending time writing a book at fellow fashion designer Vera Wang's Trousdale Estates home in the area.

He told the New York Post newspaper's Page Six column: "I never saw LA that way. I'm a sucker for views. Not to compare apples to oranges, but Miami Beach is a resort. LA is where people work, not only in the entertainment business, but all different walks - the social media world - it's a new experience."

However, the fashion mogul won't sell off his expansive Miami mansion to just anyone and confessed he is very particular about who takes over the Spanish-style house.

Calvin explained: "It may sound crazy, but I wouldn't sell it to just anyone. It would break my heart. I hate to use the word 'unique,' but I have never seen another house like it . . . I want to sell it to someone who appreciates the aesthetic."

He added he is unsure how long he will remain in his new home after fixing up the property with his ex-wife Kelly Rector to whom he was married from 1986 to 2006.

Calvin - whose eponymous empire also includes jewellery and fragrance lines - said: "[Kelly] knows me better than anyone. She said, 'We can fix this up. You can live there for a few years, and see if you like it.' Then again, I say that every time! I start by saying, 'This is going to be a temporary thing.' But there's a reason I named my first fragrance 'Obsession.' "
