Well, Alex Rodriguez hasn't commented on the record, but the Bronx baller has to be stoked as $h!t that his "f*%king soulmate, dude" is officially a free woman.

The BBC reports that according to court lists, Madonna and that Guy she was married to will be granted a preliminary divorce at the High Court in London on Friday.

According to British celebrity news reports, Madonna, 50, and Guy Ritchie, 40, reached a settlement over money and kids Lourdes, 12, Rocco, 8, and David, 3.

London's Evening Standard reports that Madonna will keep the bulk of her estimated $500 million fortune, though Ritchie was entitled by law to a share of it.

"He could have hugely boosted his bank balance and set himself up for life, but he already feels he has enough money," a pal of Guy told the the Standard.

"But he also didn't want the whole thing dragging on in the public gaze for months and months on end. In any case, his priority was their children's future."

Madonna and Ritchie were married in 2000, shortly after the birth of son Rocco. Since the split, Madonna and Alex Rodriguez, the baseball star whose relationship with her reportedly played a role in his own divorce, have been "involved."

A-Rod split with Cynthia Rodriguez earlier this year, after his alleged "affair of the heart" with Madonna and affairs of additional body parts with other skanks.

Just five months after splitting from her imprisoned ex-boyfriend, Raffaello Follieri, Anne Hathaway's friends worried she's headed for more heartbreak.

Their reason for concern: rebounding. The 26-year-old Rachel Getting Married star revealed last month she's found love again with actor Adam Shulman.

Anne Hathaway has said of her relatively unknown new flame:

"You know when you don't know someone very well - you just meet them and you're like, 'Wow, you really have it going on'?"

But according to a source at the New York Post, the 27-year-old Adam Shulman could be the wrong man at the wrong time for the actress, adding:

"Adam is known as an opportunist. When he was attending Brown (University), he went after all the heiresses. It's like Anne is addicted to losers."

Ouch! At least the bar is set pretty low for him after Follieri's sentence for conspiracy and fraud. A spokesperson for Shulman declined comment.

November is a big month for celebrity divorces.

In 2005, Jessica Simpson split with Nick Lachey, who she (supposedly) gave her v-card to and starred on a reality show called Newlyweds with. Anyone remember that?

Gosh, it was so long ago. Turned out to be Jessica's worst career move, as she can't buy a successful project now, and went on to date the biggest douchebag in music.

Nick, meanwhile, had a hit album and started hittin' Vanessa Minnillo.

November was also the month in 2006 when Britney Spears filed for divorce from that loser K-Fed, a union we all thought was super hot and destined to last forever.

Just kidding. No one thought that.

The breakup of Britney and Kevin is perhaps most notable for the fact that the girl went absolutely bonkers for a year or so afterward, shaving her head, parading around like a cheap ho in no underwear and getting hospitalized involuntarily. Twice.

Ah, the good ol' days. Which formerly married pair did you like best?

  • Nick and Jessica
  • Spederline

Which ex-spouses were hottest?

Phew. Brody Jenner, Hollywood's Womanizer-in-Chief, is supportive of his ex-girlfriend Lauren Conrad's latest romance with My Boys actor Kyle Howard.

"He's cool. I like him a lot," he said at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach's grand opening. "I see him surfing out in Malibu all the time. He's a very cool guy."

But he says Kyle Howard won't be appearing on The Hills.

"He's an actor," Jenner said. "Actors don't go on reality shows."

Does the same thing apply to Brody Jenner's newest girlfriend, the gorgeous Playboy Playmate of the Year, Jayde Nicole?

"I don't know about that," he said.

But Jenner's got a new mission. Now that he's with Jayde, and Lauren Conrad, with whom he has always remained close friends, is happy with Kyle, Jenner said he wants to find someone special for BFF Frankie Delgado.

He said he hit Saturday's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show "to find him a girl."

We hate pants.

No, really, those things suck. In fact, Fridays are pants-optional at The Hollywood Gossip offices. Hey, you gotta throw the interns some perks in a down economy.

Given our stance on this important issue, imagine our joy this morning to discover that one of our favoritest celebrities, The Hills' Whitney Port, also eschews pants!

Okay, maybe she's wearing some kind of pants.

No way our girl Whit decided to pull a Britney all of a sudden. But you have to admit, they're not easily found here. All we see is a vintage, hipster dress / shirt thing ...

Whitney Port: No Pants?

Kids. They never know how to be humble in victory.

You'd think after besting all other celebrity babies on Forbes' list of Hollywood's Hottest Tots, Suri Cruise would thank the magazine, say some gracious words about her competition (consisting primarily of Brangelina's 29 kids) and call it a day.

No.

Out with mom Katie Holmes yesterday, Suri responded to celebrity news reporters' questions about her victory with a one-finger salute to the tots she vanquished ...

These Britney Spears documentary clips are beginning to sound like The Office quotes. It's like a spoof, a joke everyone gets but the person talking on screen.

A cute singer who peaked five years ago is recording a new, mediocre album that sounds like all her other recent stuff. Definitely documentary material, right?

We heart Britney Spears, but these clips - taken from MTV's upcoming special on her, "For the Record" - crack us up every time. Even if they aren't meant to.

In the newest clip, Britney talks about getting married to K-Fed for all wrong reasons. It didn't really make her happy, she was just attracted to the idea of it.

Guess the idea of marrying a pot-smoking, backup-dancing moron and bearing two of his kids less than a year apart was just too storybook for her to turn down.

With her first TV interview set for Friday, Ashley Alexandra Dupre also sat down with People, telling the celebrity news magazine that she's "a normal girl."

"Everyone just knows me as 'that girl,' but I'm not just 'that girl,'" the 23-year-old former hooker of New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer and many others says in the new issue of the magazine. "I have a lot of depth, a lot of layers."

Enduring the scrutiny that included seeing her photos splashed on front pages "has been really hard," the New Jersey native explains. "But I'm a survivor."

Her descent into tabloid mayhem began the night of February 13, 2008, when Ashley Dupre - who worked as a high-end escort to help pay the bills on and off since 2004 - met a client who turned out to be the Governor of New York State.

She claims she had no idea who the man was that night. What she does recall is that "Client 9," as Spitzer was reportedly known at her escort service, was polite.

"Some guys want to have conversations, to get to know each other. With him, it clearly was not like that. It was more a transaction. Strictly business," says Ashley Dupre.

Casually dressed and with no entourage, Spitzer didn't strike her as someone important. Besides, "I was there for a purpose – not to wonder who [he] could be."

She didn't find out who he was until March, just days after learning she was mixed up in some sort of FBI investigation, when saw Spitzer apologizing on TV.

"It was surreal," Ashley Dupre said. "I felt like I was sinking."

Jennifer Garner has obtained a court order protecting herself from Steven Burky, who she believes is endangering her. He may no longer have any contact with her.

In her declaration, the actress says that "Mr. Burky has been stalking and harassing me," as well as sending various "packages and letters containing delusional and paranoid thoughts and following me around the country ..."

Where's Seraphina?

Garner says he has been bugging her since 2002 and "his obsessive and harassing behavior has escalated to the point of becoming dangerous and threatening."

Steven Burky has even shown up at her home and said that "God has sent him a vision of her being persecuted in some manner that may result in her death."

Garner's bodyguard, Dennis Bridwell, also submitted a declaration to the court in which he said Burky "now represents a clear threat to Jennifer Garner's life."

The LAPD has been notified and is taking the threat seriously, remaining involved in the case. Law enforcement sources are also reporting that Steven Burky is currently under a 5150 psychiatric hold, a.k.a. the Britney Spears.

Dude also writes a blog entitled "Satanic Panic." Yeah. Sounds like he's got a few screws loose and may want to check into the nearest institution if you ask us, unless of course he's reading this, in which case we're totally kidding. Stalk on, playa.

Suri Cruise is cooler than Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's kids, and not just because we don't have to hear about her being breast-fed every frickin' day.

The TomKat spawn topped the list of Forbes' "Hollywood's 10 Hottest Tots."

The li'l tyke, 2, won the annual honor, which is based on the amount of media attention celebrity babies garner, as well as their parents' popularity.

Suri Cruise appeared in more news articles and blogs than any of the Jolie-Pitt children, though Shiloh, Zahara and Pax were ranked 2-4, respectively.

Suri Cruise rules the world of celebrity babies, and you can see why.

Rounding out the (adorable) top 10 were Sam Alexis Woods, Cruz Beckham, Matilda Rose Ledger, David Banda, Sean Preston Federline, and Sam Sheen.

Here's some pics of celebrity babies 2-10, just so they don't feel like they got totally bitch-slapped by Suri, which they pretty much did. Click to enlarge!
