Chris Rock and Malaak Compton
After 19 years, Chris Rock and his wife Malaak Compton are divorcing. From all reports, they're just unhappy together, so Chris did the honorable thing before his penis starts a nightclub tour of Southern California.
Jeremy Renner and Sonni Pachuco
It was the classic love tale: Boy meets girl, boy fucks girl first night and forgets her, girl calls boy two weeks later with news of pregnancy, boy does the right thing and marries her. And now they're splitting due to irreconcilable differences. There was a prenup, but Sonni wants it nullified because of "fraud." Hmmmm . . . restart the Jeremy Renner gay rumors.
Giada De Laurentiis and Todd Thompson
After 11 years, Food Network star Giada De Laurentiis announced that she's splitting from her husband of 11 years, Todd Thompson. This is relevant because boobs. Obviously.

Buy house for $7 million, rehab it, sell for $24.95 million. Jeremy Renner is fucking brilliant. Via Contact Music:
Jeremy Renner is selling one of his mansions for $24.95 million. Renner has completely remodelled a 10,000 sq. ft. estate in the affluent Holmby Hills area of Los Angeles and is hoping to make a huge profit.Great, another winner who plays by his own set of rules. Wait, he doesn't play by any rules, he breaks them. Avengers? Bourne Legacy? Mission Impossible - Ghost Protocol? Destined to be recorded as turds on film for eternity, but somehow Mr. Renner made them work. So what if Jeremy raw dogged his ex? He was in Hurt Locker, and that movie was badass, so he gets a pass. And for toppers, Renner is turning the housing market that's been in shambles for the last eight years into his bitch. If you peasants were expecting some jokes here at Jeremy's expense, you can keep on walking, son. I'm not looking to cross that guy.
According to Business Insider, the 44-year-old actor bought the property, which sits on almost two acres of land, in 2010 for $7 million and after carrying out extensive work on it, he has now put it back on the market with his business partner Kristoffer Winters.
The pair are said to have bought, remodelled and sold 15 properties in the past decade.

Jeremy Renner's ex Sonni Pacheco
Last week Jeremy Renner let it slip at the Golden Globes that he knocked up his ex-girlfriend before breaking up with her a la Tom Brady and Bridget Moynahan. I know, right? Not a bad parting gift from a rich actor. Certainly beats a set of appliances. The National Enquirer has more info on the ex:
Sonni Pacheco is a 22-year-old model from Vancouver, British Columbia and the two met on the set of Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol.On the one hand it's pretty awkward that Jeremy dumped this chick and now she's living with him again, but on the other, it's pretty cool that Jeremy finally fulfilled his dream of knocking up a chick who sounds like a mob boss from the old country.
"Jeremy is delighted he's going to become a dad," a friend told the Enquirer, adding that Sonni is living in Jeremy's home in Los Angeles. "He realizes it's unconventional to have his baby mama, an ex-girlfriend, living with him and his roommate, but he just doesn't care."

In an interview last weekend with The Guardian, Jeremy Renner takes a nice little shot at the Kardashians . . . *waits for Kris Jenner to respond by saying Kim is more talented anyways because Jeremy only has two Oscar nominations and Kim has fucked three guys with Oscar nominations*
Renner is charmingly candid - no media-trained platitudes or overly-supportive spew in sight. It's refreshing. When we talk about the pitfalls of fame, I mention the Kardashians and he doesn't hesitate to roll his eyes and make his disdain crystal clear. "Oh, all those ridiculous people with zero talent who spend their lives making sure everyone knows their name. Those stupid, stupid people." He's also clear about what he considers a good, bad or painful interview.I love when legitimate actors take shots at the Kardashians (like Jon Hamm did in March), because you just know the one thing they crave most is acceptance from mainstream celebrities. I know Khloe, I know. And cupcakes with cream cheese frosting.

It's widely known that Christina Aguilera is one of the biggest lushes in Hollywood, so this story from Us Weekly really isn't too surprising:
Finding Christina Aguilera between his sheets was hardly a dream come true for Jeremy Renner. Popping up uninvited at Renner's 40th birthday bash on January 8, the singer, 30, got "wasted" then lay down in the star's bed, a source tells the new Us Weekly, out Wednesday. A week later, Renner went on a rant about the incident at In Style's Golden Globe party after seeing Aguilera at the fete.I'm not too familiar with the ins and outs of California law, but I'm pretty sure that Jeremy could have raped Christina and it would have technically been legal. It's sorta like when the neighborhood kids hit a baseball into your yard and you don't give it back. They can't go and complain to the police that you stole it. Vagina works the same way. "Mine now bitch!"
"Someone comes and tells me she's in my room," he told pals at the Jan. 16 affair. "I run up and open the door and I'm like, 'Um, hi. What are you doing?' She just starts slurring. Her boyfriend [Matthew Rutler] was rubbing her back. Who comes to someone's birthday party that they don't know and gets in their bed?! My parents were there!"

Jessica Simpson leaving Dane Cook's show at the Laugh Factory (2/16)
Celebslam.com presents: Two stories that aren't in the least bit funny . . . until placed back-to-back with each other:
From Rolling Stone:
[Billy Corgan] on “Loving” Jessica Simpson:From People:
“If I go, ‘Oh, we’re just friends,’ then it’s like, ‘Did they go out, did he dump her or she dump him, what happened?’ It has nothing to do with any of that. Sometimes people just like being around each other, and good things come out of that. My goal in life is to love whoever I think is worth loving, and I think if people knew her like I knew her, they would love her like I do. It’s really simple.”
Was there a love connection? Jessica Simpson, chatting with The Hurt Locker star Jeremy Renner during a cocktail party for his movie at the L.A. home of Madonna's manager Guy Oseary. Simpson, who lives next door, arrived with hairdresser Ken Paves. But she spent most of her time with the Oscar nominee. "Jeremy spent the night hitting on Jessica like crazy," the source says. "They were really flirting up a storm." Paves encouraged the two and, the source says, "Jessica loved it!" When the party was over, the two exchanged numbers, entering them into their phones.Sucks for Billy that Jessica's most likely cheating on him, but let's face it, picking up Jessica Simpson ain't exactly rocket science these days. "Yeah I know the manager of the Snickers factory. I can probably get you a tour . . ."
