We can't even fathom why, but the wife of Britney Spears' paparazzi beau Adnan Ghalib has apparently filed papers seeking legal separation.

In the documents, filed January 18, Adnan Ghalib's wife, AzLynn Elizabeth Berry, cites irreconcilable differences for her split.

She lists their wedding date as December 18, 2003. They have no children, but AzLynn Berry is asking for spousal support.

Adnan told TMZ it's not a big deal and calls it "purely procedural." "She's had the papers for a while," he tells us. "This is old."

Him boning Britney Spears? That's still pretty new!

Meanwhile, Adnan Ghalib gave an interview to Entertainment Tonight and talked about meeting Britney Spears for the first time.

"I believe it was December 20, and there was an aggressive car chase and at a stop light in Hollywood, and Britney got out of her car and got into mine, and I think that's what made the difference," he said.

Soon after, they checked into a hotel. The rest is history. They'll be toasting to that touching story at their wedding, no doubt.

While the photographer claims he is not being paid directly for taking pictures and doing an interview about Spears, sources say his agency, FinalPixx, is brokering the deal and that Adnan Ghalib will receive a significant cut.

Meanwhile, Britney Spears - whose British alter ego recently denied knowing who Adnan even is - is rumored to be showing up for today's custody hearing to fight for visitation with her Sean Preston and Jayden James!

The Sheriff's department has been alerted to her presence... though we all know how she bails sometimes. Stay tuned, this could get very ugly.

Police told Heath Ledger's family that the actor's death was accidental and there is no evidence of suicide. An autopsy is expected to be completed today.

Heath Ledger was ill with pneumonia when he died.

Heath's family - father Kim, mother Sally and sister, Katie - confirmed the tragic, untimely and accidental passing of the star in a statement:

"We would like to thank all of our friends and everyone around the world for their kind wishes at this time... Heath has touched so many people on so many different levels during his short life, but few had the pleasure to truly know him.... He was a down-to-earth, generous, kind-hearted, life-loving and unselfish individual who was an extreme inspiration to many. "

Heath Ledger (1977-2008) with former fiancee Michelle Williams.

Williams, with whom Ledger has a daughter, Matilda, is devastated by the news and is said to be en route to New York, where Heath was found dead yesterday afternoon around 3:30 p.m. by a masseuse and housekeeper.

Meanwhile, the connection of Heath Ledger to the Olsen twins - he was falsely reported to have been in Mary-Kate's apartment - is now clear.

As we reported yesterday, a cleaning lady for the actor arrived at the place first, followed soon thereafter by a masseuse. They both entered the room at around the same time and discovered Heath's lifeless body.

The cleaning lady called the police. The masseuse, we're told, called the bodyguard for the Olsens. She called him because they're friends and he's an EMT.

The bodyguard was around the block at Ashley Olsen's apartment and went over right away. By the time he arrived, police were already there.

It appeared Heath Ledger "had been dead for a while" and there were no visible signs of trauma. There was a pill bottle on the nightstand.

We first reported authorities found Heath Ledger naked on the floor. It now looks like emergency workers put the lifeless actor there in an attempt to resuscitate him, having found him on the bed originally.

A police official says there were pill bottles scattered around the apartment - not necessarily pills themselves strewn on the floor.

Story developing ...

To each her own.

We've just seen Rihanna nude trying to sell magazines.

But you won't see Reese Witherspoon nude promoting her films.

"If [actresses] take their clothes off, they objectify themselves," the Oscar winner tells the UK edition of Glamour.

"I am flabbergasted by how many legitimate actresses do it."

Reese, 31 - who shares custody of Ava, 8, and Deacon, 4, with ex-husband Ryan Phillippe - tries to avoid the pitfalls of Hollywood.

"I try to be a role model to my children. Hollywood to me is one of those endless competitions," Witherspoon says. "It's just a race towards nothing. I just want to be the best version of myself that I can be."

  Nude or not nude, Reese Witherspoon credits her 2005 Best Actress Oscar win for Walk the Line with opening up to a range of different film roles.

"I would never have been offered these kind of roles," she says. "There was also a lot of pressure after [winning an Oscar]. People wanted me to do a really big movie and I just wanted to do something more sort of personal."

Witherspoon denies being engaged to boyfriend Jake Gyllenhaal.

Goodbye, Lauren Conrad and Whitney Port. Hello, Blake Lively!

Well, sort of. She's not going to be a fashion intern at the magazine, but the Gossip Girl star is the March 2008 cover girl for Teen Vogue!

Jason Trawick and Britney Spears Picture

Here are some of the interview excerpts from the 20-year-old Gossip Girl beauty, who talks about romance, family, TV and (of course) Britney ...

On her rumored romance with her Gossip Girl co-star (and on-screen boyfriend) Penn Badgley: "I try not to talk about my dating life like I want to, but once you start, I think it's all downhill from there."

On rumors of on-set strife: "There is always going to be drama on set, but it's just not true that Leighton Meester and I dislike each other."

On trying to be sexy during some of her Gossip Girl scenes: "In one scene, I totally fell off the barstool making out with Chace Crawford. I was trying to be sexy. So I think, ‘what would Britney Spears do?' So I whished around my hair."

NOTE: What would Britney do? No clue... but it sure wouldn't involve pants!

On what the limelight has done to Britney Spears: "I feel sad for Britney Spears. I want to see what everyone else would do in her situation, she so talented and misguided. She has lived her whole life in front of an audience."

Actor Heath Ledger was discovered dead this afternoon in an apartment building in New York City, according to local police. He was just 28.

At 3:31 p.m., a masseuse arrived at Apartment 5A in the SoHo-area building for an appointment with Ledger, the New York Times reports.

The masseuse was let in to the home by a housekeeper, who then knocked on the door of Ledger's bedroom. No one answered. The housekeeper and the masseuse then opened the bedroom and found the actor unconscious.

The two called the authorities after they shook, but could not revive Heath Ledger. Suicide has not been ruled out in his death, but foul play has.

Pills were reportedly found strewn across the floor near where a naked Heath Ledger was found. Police say signs point to suicide or accidental overdose.

Heath Ledger (1979-2008) was found dead today in New York.

UPDATE: As of 5:47 p.m., the Times reports that the apartment Ledger was found in belongs to Mary-Kate Olsen. However, as of the same time, TMZ reports that it is not her place, nor is it connected with Mary-Kate Olsen at all.

The celebrity news site also reports that Heath Ledger had a substance abuse problem, but had been clean for a year. Contrary to several published reports, he had not been in rehab prior to this tragic incident.

UPDATE: As of 6:05 p.m., police say pills found near Ledger were prescription medication and nonprescription ... the medical examiner's office is removing the body from the scene, with an autopsy scheduled to be conducted Wednesday.

A native of Perth, Australia, Heath Ledger will probably be most remembered for his role in Brokeback Mountain (2005). Heath won wide critical acclaim and an Academy Award nomination for Best Actor for his portrayal of Ennis del Mar and had just completed filming The Dark Knight.

Ledger met actress Michelle Williams while filming Brokeback Mountain. The two actors fell into a very public romance and had a daughter, Matilda Rose, on October 28, 2005. They moved to Brooklyn, but separated last year.

We will continue to provide updates on the passing of Heath Ledger as more information becomes available. May this talented star rest in peace.

Commissioner Scott Gordon, the judge in Britney Spears' custody case, has repeatedly ordered the train wreck to undergo a psychological evaluation, but she has refused to comply, according to celebrity news site TMZ.

Here's the latest from the courtroom
:

  1. Gordon has issued multiple orders - known as a 730 evaluation.
  2. However, reports say Britney Spears' family and professionals have devised a plan to get her mental health help ... in a "creative way."
  3. Given recent events, the Commissioner may not dig that. K-Fed's lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, who deposed her yesterday, will certainly object.
  4. If evaluating bipolar disorder is done pursuant to a 730 evaluation, results are submitted to the court. If Gordon accepts an alternative treatment, the doctor-patient privilege could prevent info from making its way to court.

Britney Spears, seen here with Sam Lutfi, has refused mental help.

The likely scenario? Kevin Federline and Mark Vincent Kaplan will fight to make sure the singer does not bypass the 730 evaluation process.

That could make it unlikely for Britney Spears to win a bid to regain visitation rights with Sean Preston and Jayden James "in a therapeutic setting," which her attorneys are expected to argue for tomorrow morning in court.

Stay tuned.

NOTE: Prepare yourself for the lamest opening of all time.

They tried to make her go to rehab, folks, and she said "yes, yes, yes" ... about a year and 100 drug overdoses too late. But who's counting?

Winehouse-d

The shamed singer left her East London home today in a blacked-out Mercedes and headed to the Edward House private rehab clinic in North West London, according to The Sun, which revealed some shocking pics of her earlier.

Her relocation comes on the same day The Sun exposed a shocking video of her taking a cocktail of drugs - most notably, she was smoking crack.

Earlier in the day her dad, Mitch Winehouse, said that the pics and video were upsetting, but nothing anyone is surprised at, or didn't know about already. He came to Amy's home to offer support and followed her to rehab.

  FINALLY: After myriad drug problems, Amy Winehouse is headed to rehab to get clean. Now if someone could just get Britney Spears a psychiatric evaluation...

Winehouse, the Grammy-nominated Black To Black singer, has also reverted back to her familiar brunette beehive look, ditching that hideous blonde bottle look.

Fans from all over the world have called on Amy Winehouse to quit drugs after today's revelation. Many left messages on her official website and The Sun.

One said: "I really like Amy. I wish she would sort her self out!"

Another: "Come on Amy just look at pics of you a few years ago and pictures of you now that should be enough to give you a kick up the ****! Fix up!"

We think we know what that means. Continue reading The Sun's article on Amy Winehouse's recent meltdown and trip to rehab by clicking here ...

After seeing former friend Kim Kardashian kissing Reggie Bush at the Sundance Film Festival, Paris Hilton had to do something to upstage her.

Enter Jared Leto. Later that night, at least.

Happy Hilton

For now, these two were simply spotted making out like Britney Spears and the closest celebrity gossip photographer. Or Lindsay Lohan and the closest person on two legs.

You get the point.

Keep those eyes closed, Jared Leto. That way, you can pretend this is Angela Chase.

Last week, Leto was spotted kissing Ashley Olsen. This actor sure knows how to suck face with thin skanks!

As Hillary Rodham Clinton dreams of occupying the Oval Office, her husband and our former president, Bill Clinton, was having dreams of his own yesterday.

Quite literally.

Bill Clinton in NYC

Yesterday, on Martin Luther King, Jr., Day, cameras caught Bill Clinton nodding off during a church service honoring the slain civil rights leader...

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N4zgXVdSG_k[/youtube]

Having served eight years in the world's most powerful job, and with the rigorous campaigning he's been doing on behalf of Hillary Clinton, you can't blame the former chief exec for being tired. And who hasn't nodded off in church?

Still, come on. Get it together, Bubba.

No, he's not angling for Patrick Dempsey's role on Grey's Anatomy. But the husband of Ellen Pompeo can't help but gush about married life.

At Paris Fashion Week Monday, the actress and her longtime partner / spouse of two months were clearly still on cloud nine over their recent nuptials.

Ellen and Chris Pic

"We're blessed," the 38-year-old Grey's Anatomy star said. She and Chris Ivery tied the knot in New York City on her birthday in November.

Chris Ivery is the McDreamy of Ellen Pompeo in real life.

But does Ellen Pompeo think that her TV alter ego, Meredith Grey, will ever find similar happiness with Derek "McDreamy" Shepherd?

"Who can say?" she sighed at Italian designer Giorgio Armani's Monday fashion show. "We're not working because of the writers' strike."

Chris Ivery, a music producer, piped in on cue: "I am the real McDreamy!"

Also on hand for Armani's show in the City of Lights were Hilary Swank, Dita von Teese and the legendary Sophia Loren.
