American Idol winner Ruben Studdard has filed for divorce from Surata Zuri McCants, his wife of more than three years, according to reports.

The Velvet Teddy Bear filed the papers in his native Alabama citing the catch-all "irreconcilable differences" as the impetus for the breakup.

They have no children together.

A rep for Studdard did not elaborate on the reasons for the divorce, but did confirm that it's a go, saying, “Ruben and Zuri have gone their separate ways.”

Ruben won the second season of American Idol back in 2003, besting a young fella by the name of Clay Aiken to take the crown. Those were the days.

It looks like Pippa Middleton is now the UK's most eligible bachelorette.

Duchess Catherine's younger sister, who became the planet's best-known bridesmaid in April, has reportedly split with Alex Loudon, her longtime boyfriend.

Kate Middleton has been consoling her kid sister after the breakup with Loudon, a former professional cricket player and current London financial manger.

He and Pippa Middleton are said to have split up this month after a series of arguments - and lingering tension over her celebrity / sex symbol status.

A source told The Sun (UK) that Pippa, who spent last weekend with William and Kate, was trying to get over the split: "This time it's over. They are barely speaking."

People close to them said the attention focused on Pippa got to Alex.

The source revealed: "It was said after the royal wedding that Alex was jealous of Pippa flirting with Prince Harry. But the truth is she and Harry are just mates."

Other friends claimed the couple's increasing bust-ups, including a huge public one in September, stemmed Loudon not being able to cope with Pip's celebrity.

In any case, Pippa, who works at her family's event planning company Party Pieces, and is said to be close to a book deal, is in no rush to find a new fella.

But when she is, a friend of hers tells the tabloid: "She's always gone for sporty guys. Whoever is lucky enough to win her affections will have to be athletic."

Better start working out, fellas.

Vienna Girardi and Kasey Kahl, rejects from The Bachelor and Bachelorette who teamed up on Bachelor Pad and in life, have ended their relationship.

"Yes vienna and I have split. It's been 5 weeks now. I can't fake it anymore. I will always love, be there for her, and wish her the best," Kahl Tweeted.

"@KaseyRKahl will always be my best friend, but we have split. No idea what the future holds for us but we will always remain friends," Girardi said.

Girardi briefly became engaged to Jake Pavelka on The Bachelor but things quickly went south and culminated in an ugly, televised break-up interview.

Kahl wooed Ali Fedotowsky on The Bachelorette with song, and had his lame ass catch phrase, "guard and protect your heart," tattooed on his wrist.

Ali was unimpressed, but he won over Vienna Girardi, who he teamed with on Bachelor Pad. There, Kasey set out to "mentally beat the $h!t out of Jake."

That didn't really work out either. While they quickly became the power couple to beat, Holly Durst and Michael Stagliano prevailed in the show's finale.

We wish Kasey and Vienna the best in their future endeavors. Endeavors which, hopefully, never require us to post about the douche-tastic pair again.

Having cooled their heels after the recent deluge of Kate Middleton pregnancy rumors, British tabloids are tripping over themselves to focus on her sister again. So it goes.

The news from across the Atlantic: Pippa Middleton is newly single!

Maybe. Pippa is maintaining her trademark silence on the split rumor. Though she seems to be the only one. Both the Sun and Daily Mail are quoting "sources" close to the couple, claiming she and banker BF Alex Loudon broke up ...

According to the Sun, while the summer split between Pippa, 27, and Alex, 31 was brief, this time, they're over for good after their "increasingly frequent arguments."

The tabloid even claims say Pippa sought solace with big sis Kate Middleton and Prince William in the wake of the split, visiting the couple at Balmoral last weekend.

While no one's confirming the split, Pippa and Alex certainly seemed happy together this summer, going to one wedding, charity event or tennis match after another.

However, if rumors of a split are true, she probably won't be on the market for too long. Just check out our gallery of Pippa Middleton pictures to find out why.

No word if Prince Harry is boarding a flight back from Arizona as we speak.

Whitney Purvis of 16 and Pregnant fame had enough of her baby daddy's slacker, lazy lifestyle, so she kicked his ass to the curb and peaced out with their child.

That'll send a message alright.

According to Whitney, Weston Gosa "was gone all the time. He wouldn’t come home until 3 in the morning ... I was home with the baby and he was nowhere to be found.”

But Whitney doesn't believe Weston was cheating. She says:

"You definitely know when someone is cheating on you. He was just out with his friends all the time getting all messed up ... I don’t want that around my kid.”

Whitney claims that the pair was fighting constantly and she just couldn't take it anymore, so she moved back in with her parents - and her son came with.

Weston has yet to comment, but he is giving Josh Rendon and Ebony Jackson a run for their unfit parenting money. Good thing Whitney stepped up.

Handler told Piers Morgan Tonight about her relationship then:

Despite having their murder convictions overturned and their freedom restored, Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito say their relationship can never be repaired.

"It's all over between us," an emotional Sollecito said during an interview, according to the Daily Mail. "I still have a great affection towards her but nothing else."

According to Raffaele Sollecito, their romance in Perugia, Italy, abruptly ended when they were convicted of murdering her roommate, Meredith Kercher, in 2007.

That will typically do it.

The pair subsequently spent four years in prison before the guilty verdicts were overturned last month. Don't hold your breath for a reconciliation, though.

"Our love was like a seed that was not allowed to grow because it was brutally stamped on," Sollecito said. "We were both victims of a cruel injustice."

"Our relationship was overcome by this tragedy."

Amid reports that Knox, 24, has a new boyfriend, Sollecito also said he has thus far declined an offer from Knox's family to stay with them in Seattle.

"I just want to build up my life as it was before and it will have to be piece by piece," he said. "She has suffered like me and now I just want her to be happiest woman in the world. Our lives are linked by circumstances but are very different."
