Katie Holmes claims that her marriage to Tom Cruise was "irretrievably" broken at least six months ago ... something that is probably news to Tom, who was reportedly "blindsided" when she filed the paperwork in New York last week.

The Tom Cruise-Katie Holmes divorce is shaping up to be contentious, especially since he didn't see it coming, the two were reportedly walking hand-in hand in Iceland, where he's filming his new movie, just two weeks ago.

It's unclear why she considers things effectively over by late 2011.

All accounts to date suggest that Holmes is attempting to free her daughter from the influence she fears Tom's religion, Scientology, will have on her life.

Clearly, they see things differently. Katie claims in her divorce documents that both she and Tom have been residents of New York for "at least 2 years."

The couple does own an apartment there that is deeded in her name, but Katie has been living in a separate place in NYC in recent weeks with Suri Cruise.

In a thoughtful, well-reasoned statement, Anderson Cooper came out as a proud gay man today, saying:

"Recently I’ve begun to consider whether the unintended outcomes of maintaining my privacy outweigh personal and professional principle. It’s become clear to me that by remaining silent on certain aspects of my personal life for so long, I have given some the mistaken impression that I am trying to hide something - something that makes me uncomfortable, ashamed or even afraid.

"This is distressing because it is simply not true."

In response to the (not surprising) reveal, many celebrities have taken to Twitter and sent the CNN anchor their best wishes. A sampling is below:

Neil Patrick Harris: “Good for you, @AndersonCooper. You’re awesome.”

Jesse Tyler Ferguson: “One of the reasons I look up to my friend @andersoncooper is his amazing eloquence. Very proud of him!”

Ellen DeGeneres: “I’m proud of you, @AndersonCooper.”

LeAnn Rimes: “Rock on @AndersonCooper for being a brave, classy man. Much respect!”

Kelly Ripa: “So proud of you @andersoncooper . Always have been, always will be.”

Sara Bareilles: “I applaud @andersoncooper for being authentic and honest with the public. It helps others feel brave too.”

Joan Rivers: “Thrilled @AndersonCooper came out! So, THAT’S why he never wanted to date me! I would’ve loved having Gloria Vanderbilt as my mother-in-law.”

Justin Bieber did not take too kindly to questions on the "Mojo in the Morning" radio show recently, quickly becoming agitated and ultimately hanging up.

Comparisons to Justin Timberlake were the main catalyst, with references to Bieber's mom and One Direction's Harry Styles the apparent final straw.

“I hope you take this as a compliment,” stated Mojo. “When I heard 'Boyfriend' for the very first time. I thought it was Justin Timberlake's single.”

Justin Bieber was far from flattered. “Man, that’s crazy because our voices sound nothing alike," he said. "I mean, I'm not trying to sound like anyone."

"Saying I sound like someone else is not really a compliment. ... if you were to say 'I heard some Justin Timberlake-esque things,' I would take that as a compliment."

That minor stiff was nothing compared to the reaction he had when Mojo decided to bring up Bieber's mother and One Direction singer Harry Styles.

After the radio host joked that Styles might end up seducing his mother, given his penchant for older women, Bieber went on the offensive.

"I don't think you should worry about me [and my mom with Harry Styles]," the 18-year-old sensation said. "Worry about your mom, bro."

Mojo then noted that his mom had passed away, right before Bieber peaced out. Awkward. What do you think of Bieber's reaction in hanging up?

Almost a year to the date of her acquittal, Casey Anthony is living life in seclusion, rarely venturing out for fear she'll be recognized, and wearing the ashes of the daughter most people believe she brutally murdered around her neck.

Her mother Cindy made her a special necklace with them.

"Casey told me it was the way the Anthony women would be together forever," a friend says, noting that Cindy Anthony wears them as well.

Since walking out of jail a free woman on July 17, 2011, Casey, who must remain in Florida due to probation, has moved around the state.

Now settling in the West Palm Beach area and spending most of her days online, Anthony has put on about 20 pounds, according to the friend.

In an interview with Piers Morgan in June, Anthony maintained that she did not kill Caylee Anthony, and that she's often been misunderstood.

One person who isn't buying it: Prosecutor Jeff Ashton.

"I'm not going to get all weepy at the thought of Casey not being able to go out partying," he says. "She brought it all upon herself, and now she has to live with it – which is incidentally a luxury that Caylee will never get."

On a related note, even Jose Baez thinks she's crazy.

Mel Gibson's own stepmother, Teddy Joye Hicks Gibson, says the actor spit in her face, threatened her and sabotaged her marriage, according to reports.

Joye, who married Mel's father Hutton Gibson in 2001, has formally filed for a restraining order against Mel in court, claiming she fears for her safety.

Joye claims Mel and his sister Maura despise her because she doesn't approve of all the medical treatments they've been pressuring Hutton to undergo.

Hutton Gibson, 93, has a host of serious health problems.

Mel Gibson Smirks

Teddy Joye Hicks Gibson claims that, among other things ...

  • Visiting Hutton in the hospital, she said something that pissed Mel off and he "began yelling at me in a very loud and terrifying voice." (1/12)
  • After she refused his cooking on a trip to seek stem cell treatment for Hutton, "Mel looked at me in disgust and said that I was insulting him by not eating. He then threatened that if I did not eat he would have me put outside." (3/12)
  • During a family meeting to discuss Hutton's health care, "Mel became incensed and began acting like a wild man ... He was so close that I could feel his spit hitting my face. [Mel's eyes] looked as if they were bulging out of his head." (5/12)

Nicki Minaj recently commented on the feud between Chris Brown and Drake, her Young Money label-mate, by claiming that she "doesn't approve" of the beef.

The now-infamous Chris Brown-Drake fight that broke out last month at an NYC club left many injured and got the establishment shut down in the aftermath.

All over Rihanna too, allegedly. Speaking to the BBC, Nicki weighed in:

  • Chris Brown Fashion
  • Nicki Minaj Fashion
  • Drake, Glasses

"I don't approve of talented people doing things that aren't conducive to an amazing career. I spoke to Drake, and I told him from the bottom of my heart how I felt."

"I'm like, 'Baby, you are a superstar, and I need you to realize that."

Speaking to Tim Westwood on BBC Radio 1 Xtra, Minaj revealed that, although she thought Drake was innocent, he still needed to be careful of his reputation."

"He did nothing wrong, of course. Rumors are rumous, and that there's what it is. Sometimes, you just need to go to bed. Go to the hotel and have an early nap."

"At the end of the day, there's nothing wrong with that."

Words to live by, Drizzy. Words to live by.

Whose side are you on in the feud?

Rick Calamaro, the former assistant and close friend of Charlie Sheen's who many believed took part in the actor's past drug binges, has been found dead.

As first reported by TMZ, Calamaro's body was found in his Los Angeles apartment yesterday, although it's believed he'd been deceased for many days.

No word yet from Sheen's camp, but our thoughts go out to Calamaro's family.

Forget Tad Hamilton, Vampire Diaries fans. You can now win a date with Ian Somerhalder!

The actor has placed lunch with himself up for auction in order to raise proceeds on behalf of the ISF Foundation, specifically with the aim of opening an animal sanctuary. As Ian tells Entertainment Weekly...

Ian Somerhalder, Dog

“A big component of ISF is not just habitat or species conservation, it’s animal protection and youth education. There are too many animals that are abused, mistreated, and abandoned. They’ve been ostracized, they have behavioral issues, and they’re starving. It’s just unbelievable what we’ve done to the animals, and I think that’s why this is so important.

"I think it’s an amazing opportunity for us to show that having compassion for one another - and all furry, scaled, or feathered creatures - is the only way we can progress.”

Submit your bid now for the auction and respond below: How much would you pay to go on a date with Ian Somerhalder?

Boy band Mindless Behavior flat out dissed Lauryn Hill on live TV last night, and the joke apparently upset Beyonce, one of the 2012 BET Award winners, to the point where she changed her acceptance speech to honor The Fugees singer.

The diss went down womedian Mike Epps and the guys from Mindless Behavior were all getting set to co-present the award for Best R&B Artist.

Mike, who can't carry a tune to save his life, jokingly tried to sing. One of the dudes said, "You sing BAD ... like Lauryn Hill's tax accountant bad."

The zinger, a reference to Lauryn Hill's felony tax evasion case, elicited gasps from the crowd, including Beyonce, who was far from pleased.

Winning the award moments later, Bey said, "I want to thank all the talented R&B women that came before me like Lauryn Hill and Mary J. Blige."

As she walked off stage, she could be heard venting about the insult, saying the dude's Lauryn Hill joke was "disrespectful" and "not cool."

When a BET handler complimented Beyonce's shout-out to the maligned Hill, the "Halo" singer replied, "I just felt [the diss] was wrong."

What do you think of the Lauryn Hill diss?

In January, Kristen Stewart was named the spokesperson of Balenciaga. And now The Twilight Saga star has posed for her first campaign on behalf of this fragrance company.

She looks as happy as usual on the poster, too:

Photographer Steven Meisel shot the photo, which Stewart endorsed during a recent chat with Women's Wear Daily.

“There is something natural about it,” Kristen said of the pose and set-up. “It’s very alive. I think that as a young person wearing it - considering that I’ve never worn a scent - it kind of puts you on this level of, like, ‘Whoa, check me out.’”

The scent promoted here, Florabotanica, combines mint, vetiver and amber. Robert Pattinson is likely taking a whiff of it right about now.
