Nearly one year after Houston Texans running back Arian Foster welcomed a love child with college student Brittany Norwood, his wife, Romina Lombardo Foster, has filed for divorce. According to TMZ,  Lombardo filed to end her 4-year marriage on April 22. Despite the instances of infidelity that occurred within their relationship, the split appears to be an amicable one. Foster released a statement Monday announcing the divorce. His statement reads:

“After 4 years of marriage, it has been nothing but a gift. I’m extremely grateful for the wife, mother and person she was to myself and our children. I will continue to be here and support her wholeheartedly on her next journey as I’m sure she’ll do the same for me. We have two beautiful children that are the center and focal point for both of our lives and I’m forever thankful that we crossed paths. At this time please respect the privacy of her, myself and most importantly our children.”

Lombardo also confirmed the filing in a statement, which reads:

“After much thought and soul searching, I have made the difficult decision to end our marriage.
We are both committed to being excellent co-parents. Our children always come first and we will continue to raise them together as a family. We ask that you respect our privacy and our children’s privacy during this time.”

Well, no one can say that they didn’t try to make it work.

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner? Chris Rock and Malaak? So far, 2015 is turning out to be a terrible year for celebrity breakups.

Chris Rock’s Soon-To-Be Ex-Wife Demands Large Portion Of Comedian’s $70 Million Fortune

It’s cheaper to keep her.

Last winter, Chris Rock, 50, filed for divorce from his wife of nearly 20 years, Malaak Compton-Rock, 46. Thankfully, the messy details of their split (if there are any) have not been unfolding in the headlines, but it appears that this may change shortly.

According to Page Six, Malaak recently submitted documents to the Bergen County courts, and she’s requesting a significant portion of the comedian’s $70 million fortune.

In the filing, the stay-at-home mother of two explains that she put her career in public relations on hold after the birth of their two daughters, Lola Simone, 13, and Zahra Savannah, 11. In other words, she’s going to need Chris to continue financially supporting the lifestyle that she has grown accustomed to living.

Documents state that Malaak deserves a payout “commensurate with the marital standard of living” because she’s dedicated much of her life to child rearing and charity work. As previously reported, the pair did sign a prenuptial agreement before tying the knot in 1996; however, it expired on their 18-year wedding anniversary.

Last month, Chris spoke to The Guardian regarding his impending divorce, admitting that the process has taken an emotional toll on him.

“I’m doing OK,” Rock told the paper. “You know, some days are better than others, some days you’re sad outta your f-cking mind. But my daughters are good, and I’m only an hour away. Two houses close by. It’s good.”

Divorce sucks.

Paula Patton Shares Why Leaving Robin Thicke Was Such A Big Deal For Her

While some hollered that they saw it coming from a mile away, personally, I was a little shocked when Paula Patton announced her separation from Robin Thicke last year. Sure, it was obvious that they were having problems, but for some reason, I just assumed they would work it out. Now that they’re mere weeks away from finalizing their divorce, Paula is opening up more and more about her decision to leave and what life has been like since the two have separated.

For one, the Baggage Claim actress says that the experience has been life changing because she’s never really been on her own before. She met Robin when she was just 14 years old and when she decided to move out of her parents’ home years later, she moved in with her childhood sweetheart.

“I moved from my parent’s house to moving in with Robin and now I’m becoming an adult,” she explained in an interview with Meredith Vieira. “I feel like a real woman now.”

As liberating as stepping out on her own may be, Paula says that it also comes with its challenges–like being a single mother.

“I took a lot of time off to be with him and then I had to pack for a trip because I had to go to work and he said, ‘Mommy I don’t want you to go to work,'” she shared. “It’s the challenge of being a working mother and it’s the first time he ever said that to me, because I did work when he was a baby, but now he is more aware of everything, so what are you going to do? It’s sort of the trials and tribulations of being a woman. Right?”

Overall, Paula says she’s doing well.

“You know I’m doing really well. It’s been a long year and a lot of challenges but I’ve grown quite a bit and just getting used to change,” she said.

As previously reported, Paula and Robin have already reached a divorce settlement. Their split will be finalized next month.

Terrence Howard’s Ex-Wife Is About To Get Broke Off From “Empire”

Terrence Howard is finding out the price of success the hard way — or maybe it’s the cost of a hasty union. Either way, the actor is about to see some of his “Empire” flee from his hands, as his ex-wife, Michelle Howard, is reportedly entitled to some of the earnings from his hit Fox show and she wants her pay day.

As TMZ puts it, Michelle Howard is already slated to receive $5,800 per month in spousal support, but new documents show she is also supposed to get 21% of anything Terrence made over $62,500 in the first three months of this year. According to the ex, Terrence earns $125,000 per episode of “Empire,” and since three episodes were shot in 2015, she should get about $65,000. TMZ says Michelle will also be entitled to earnings from Terrence’s other Fox show coming this year, “Wayward Pines,” so it seems the lessons just keep on rolling in for the 46-year-old, thrice-married actor.

As you’ll recall, Terrence and Michelle’s divorce was anything but civil with her alleging domestic abuse and him retorting with accusations of racism so it’s not likely this money will be exchanged without a fight.

Knicks Coach Derek Fisher Files For Divorce Weeks After 10 Year Anniversary

Unfortunately, another couple is throwing in the towel.

Derek Fisher recently filed for divorce in Los Angeles, TMZ Sports reports. The New York Knicks coach and his wife Candace Fisher recently celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary. It’s unclear why Derek wants out after spending more than a decade with Candace because he only cited irreconcilable differences as a reason for the breakup in his filing.

If Candace doesn’t put up a fight, it appears that this will be a fairly smooth divorce. He is asking that they split legal costs and share joint legal and physical custody of their twins, Tatum and Drew. They each have a child from a previous relationship. In 2007, their daughter Tatum was treated for retinoblastoma. Thankfully, she recovered from the rare form of eye cancer.

“This is a difficult time for me personally. For the sake of our children, I ask that everyone respects our privacy during this process,” Derek said of the split.

The estranged couple tied the knot on February 19, 2005.

Paula Patton & Robin Thicke Reach Divorce Settlement

It’s as good as official. Robin Thicke’s attempts to “Get Her Back” did not work. According to TMZ, Paula Patton and her R&B singing husband have reached a settlement in their divorce.

Apparently, Paula filed legal documents on Tuesday confirming that both a property settlement and custody arrangements for the soon-to-be divorced couple’s son Julian have been agreed upon. Spousal and child support agreements have also been reached.

Unfortunately for nosy folks like us, the terms of the settlement are private. TMZ is claiming that wording of the filing seems to spell out that Paula will maintain primary custody, however, there’s nothing solid to confirm this. The divorce will not be finalized until April 14, six months after Paula’s initial filing.

As previously reported, the actress filed for divorce back in October, just seven months after she announced their separation.

Patton spoke about her impending divorce earlier this month. Though she admits that it’s been tough separating from her longtime love, she says she found happiness in their son.

“The thing is, you can’t wallow in sadness or stay in bed when you have a child,” said the Baggage Claim actress. “And they’re so full of life and wonder. And he brings me so much joy.”

The good news is that it seems like this has been a fairly amicable divorce.

Keyshawn Johnson’s Wife Files For Divorce After Just 7 Months Of Marriage

Unfortunately, another celebrity couple has decided to throw in the towel. The wife of former football star Keyshawn Johnson has filed for divorce.

According to TMZ, Jennifer Conrad filed with the L.A. County Superior Court on March 3. The newlywed revealed in court documents that the two separated in February. She did not provide a specific reason for wanting out of the marriage, but cited irreconcilable differences.

Conrad is requesting joint legal custody of their two children, ages five and two, but asks for primary physical custody with Johnson getting visitation. As for finances, Conrad explained that she signed a pre-nup before the wedding.

The pair just tied the knot seven months ago during an August oceanfront wedding ceremony in Newport Beach, California. A little less than a year ago, Johnson and Conrad were involved in a domestic dispute that ended with Johnson being arrested. Johnson denied striking his partner from day one.

“I would like to apologize to my family, friends, colleagues, fans and of course, Jennifer for what happened last night at my home in Calabasas,” he explained on Twitter last year. “Though the true facts will come out as part of the legal process, I can say now without hesitation that I did not hit, grab or strike Jennifer, nor would I ever touch her or any other woman in anger. I am cooperating with the authorities and will continue to do so to ensure that this personal matter is fairly and expediently resolved.”

Charges against the ESPN analyst were dropped about a month later after the Los Angeles District Attorney looked into the incident and found it to be a big misunderstanding. Ironically, the two were reportedly arguing about marriage prior to the arrest.

Sources insist that this may not be the end for the pair and that there’s a chance the two will make up and call off the divorce.

“No Thanks” Wiz Khalifa Says He Doesn’t Want Amber Rose Back

Even though Wiz Khalifa was just saying how his baby mama is fine and she acknowledged that she would like to work on their marriage, based on his most recent tweets, it seems like that ship has sailed.

Last night, Wiz took to Twitter to talk about how foul it is for a woman to keep a man’s child from him. And since he and Amber have a child together and they no longer live under the same roof, it wasn’t long before we assumed he must have been talking about his soon-to-be ex wife Amber Rose and their son Sebastian.

Here’s what he had to say.

Then, just forty minutes later, it seemed the situation had changed.

Well, people who had been following his tweets assumed that since he had seen Sebastian the beef was squashed and Wiz and Amber could get back to this much desired resolution. But Khalifa shut that down with a quickness.

And all my ladies said, “Ouch!”

Then he continued:

I don’t know what’s going on with these two. But I would sincerely hope that Amber Rose is not maliciously keeping their son away from his father. I don’t know her or anything but she just doesn’t seem like the type of person who would do that, particularly when she’s stated, publicly, that she’ll always love him and she would like for them to get back together. But things change quickly. Perhaps Amber got the hint that he wasn’t trying to reconcile and is trying to punish him for it. Really though, I find that incredibly hard to believe.

At the end of the day though, this seems quite embarrassing. Amber’s using social media to express her love–aside from initially revealing the affair–and Wiz is using the same vehicle to say he’s over it.

It just makes me sad.
