It looks like Mariah Carey and James Packer have gotten engaged — without officially getting divorced from their exes first. But they’re not the only celeb couple rushing to the altar. These celebrities were down to marry someone new before their divorces were finalized.
For some reason, I thought Lark Voorhies and her ex husband Jimmy Green were going to handle their divorce privately and quietly. But that doesn’t seem to be the case. Things have taken an ugly turn. And yesterday, when Green posted a picture on Instagram, completely unrelated to his relationship with Lark, she responded with a comment about his smaller than average penis.
Fameolous caught the exchange on Instagram before Jimmy deleted Lark’s comment.
But apparently Lark wasn’t done.
Earlier today, she issued a full statement regarding her six month marriage to Jimmy and why she doesn’t have time for the “bugaboos.”
See what she had to say in one of the most coherent statements we’ve heard from Voorhies in a long time.
Well, well, well.
Tell it all Lark!
Hours after this overshare, Voorhies posted another picture on Instagram saying that her account had been compromised.
Interestingly enough, she didn’t delete the original, offending post.
In the past, listening to Lark Voorhies speak has been an interesting endeavor. It seemed she just plucked words out of the sky and strung them together in confusing sentences. But this letter seemed to be written pretty coherently. Perhaps, now that she’s away from Jimmy, she’s in the care of her mother and she’s getting the help she needs.
It was very clear from the start that Green was attempting to take advantage of Voorhies. And now with him referencing sex tapes, it’s clear that that was indeed the case. Maybe they’re both battling something.
Either way, I hope I don’t see Green do anything to further abuse or take advantage of Voorhies. And if he does, I hope she’s ready for him.
Sherri Shepherd’s last attempt to prove that she doesn’t owe her her estranged husband Lamar Sally child support has proven unsuccessful.
According toTMZ, a judge dismissed her claim that Sally defrauded her into having a surrogate carry a baby for them. Shepherd was trying to assert that Sally only did so so he could secure a child support check once it was clear that the couple were divorcing.
The appeals court agreed with the lower court’s decision that Shepherd was compliant with the surrogacy plan and even paid for much of the process.
In the couple’s original settlement, Shepherd agreed to pay Sally $4,100 a month for the infant until she could appeal. Those payments are now permanent until the child turns 13. At that time, the amount will be increased to $4,600.
After two years and one beautiful son together, Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez have decided to end their marriage.
The couple released a joint statement to People earlier today.
“It is with a heavy heart that we have come to the decision to divorce. We move forward with love and respect for one another and the shared focus of what is best for our son. We wish each other nothing but happiness in life and we hope that you respect our and, most importantly, our children’s privacy as we go through this difficult period.”
A source told People that the relationship had simply “run its course” and added that Halle and Oliver are “keeping it amicable now. She is okay.”
The couple met in 2010, on the set of Dark Tide. They married three years later when Halle was pregnant with their son Maceo-Robert.
In addition to undergoing the divorce proceedings for this marriage, Berry is still fighting with ex boyfriend and father to her seven-year-old daughter Nahla.
Good luck to Halle and Olivier both.
We can’t exactly say we’re surprised to learn that former “Saved By The Bell” actress Lark Voorhies has filed for a divorce from her husband Jimmy Green.
According to TMZ, the couple are ending their six month marriage. They met on Facebook a little over a year ago. Shortly after we learned of her marriage, TMZ also reported that Green was wanted by the police for making criminal threats and disorderly conduct.
Voorhies and Green later came forward defending their marriage against the media and Lark’s mother, who filed a restraining order against Green.
He told TMZ that the reason for the divorce was Voorhies’ mother who had been a “nightmare from the beginning.” Still, he seemed to agree that it was time for their union to come to an end. He said that the only reason Lark filed for divorce first was because he didn’t know how to do it.
I have to be real. Judging from their last sit down interview with Entertainment Tonight, it was painfully clear that Voorhies is not well and perhaps Green, who might also be ill, was exploiting the situation.
According to the court documents, Voorhies is trying to eliminate any chances of Green being able to receive spousal support.
Hopefully, this divorce is a sign that Lark is getting the help she needs and is coming back around to herself. We’re wishing the best for her.
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.
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.”
Prenups between ordinary couples don’t get that exciting: “Do you get our collection of angry cat mugs or do I?” But when it comes to celebrities, there is a lot to protect, and a lot to split up. Here are 15 of the most outrageous celebrity prenups.
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.
