Jewel and her husband Ty Murray announced that they're getting divorced.  But in very annoying, Gwyneth Paltrow-like fashion, Jewel described the split as, quote, "A thoughtful and tender undoing of ourselves." 

It may have just blown up between Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez.  Yesterday, Demi unfollowed Selena on Twitter.  Then she posted a meme consisting of three pictures, where she's swimming.  In each one, she's further away, and the caption read, "Swimming away from your bull[crap].  Bye [B-word]." 

Katy Perry is now being sued by a Christian rapper named flame, who claims that parts of the song "Dark Horse" were stolen from a song he released over five years ago called "Joyful Noise". 

Lindsay Lohan filed a lawsuit against the makers of "Grand Theft Auto 5" yesterday, claiming they used her likeness for a character named Lacey Jones . . . who does kind of look like her.  No word on how much she's suing for.

In a new interview, the director of "The Notebook" says Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams actually kind of hated each other while they were filming.  Ryan even tried to get her kicked off the set once.  Then they screamed at each other for a while, until they hashed things out.  The two went on to date for more than two years after filming ended.

A homeless man with a knife tried to get into the ABC building in New York City to attack Michael Strahan.

On "Good Morning America" yesterday, Robin Thicke admitted he's just flying by the seat of his pants when it comes to trying to get Paula Patton back.  He said, quote, "I actually have no idea what I'm doing." 

Levar Burton’s "Reading Rainbow" Kickstarter campaign set a record, earning more than $5.4 million by the time it ended yesterday.  Burton's original goal was $1 million.  "Family Guy" creator Seth Macfarlane pledged to kick in $1 million once donations reached the $4 million mark.  So if you add in his money, they actually made $6.4 million.
