              Finally, Gavin Rossdale and Gwen Stefani have reached an agreement about how their assets will be divided in their divorce settlement. The grapevine has it that the couple will get joint custody of their 3 kids. The agreement provides for an equal split in physical custody.

              Pope to Make it Easier to Get an Annulment

                For a long time, divorce has caused some divide between the Roman Catholic Church and devout Catholics all over the world. This is because Catholicism doesn’t recognize divorce as a legal dissolution of marriage. According to the church, the only way to dissolve a marriage is to get an annulment, which declares that the marriage didn’t exist in the first place. If a Catholic remarries after a divorce, it’s considered adultery. Devout Catholics have long desired a change in this policy. Getting an annulment is a complicated, time consuming, and exhaustive process. The separating couple always feels that there’s an invasion of their privacy during the annulment process. The cost is also very prohibitive. Now, Pope Francis has taken a

                  Burt Reynolds and Loni Anderson have hadone of the most volatile divorces in Hollywood. The high-profile split gave gossip rags fodder for more than 22 years. Their divorce was notoriously nasty, with no accusations spared on either side. Reynolds accused her of cheating while Anderson accused him of abuse.

The divorce settlement required Reynolds to pay Anderson a fixed amount, but Reynolds filed for bankruptcy before the full amount could be paid.

                  Brian Green asks for Spousal Support

                    Whether or not people were surprised by the split between Megan Fox and Brian Green, most would’ve predicted that Green would ask for spousal support. That’s exactly what has happened. The documentation leaked to the press showed a check-mark against spousal support payable to the respondent. It was obvious that Fox would have to pay spousal support as Green hasn’t been working enough to support himself for the past few months. Last December, the couple got into an accident. A drunk driver collided with their car at 50mph. The force of the accident was enough for the bags to deploy. It was reported that both Fox and Green escaped the accident relatively unscathed. Later it became apparent that Green wasn’t
