VANESSA BRYANT FILES FOR DIVORCE:
The last six months haven’t been kind to Kobe. First, the Lakers don’t make it to the championship and just earlier this week, they lose a huge chance to obtain Chris Paul. And now, it appears Kobe and Vanessa have called it quits. We all read the breaking news on TMZ, right? So let’s see here: Two children? Check. Married in the state of California? Check. Married longer than 10 years (they married in April 2001 so that’s about 10 years and 8 months)? Check. It sounds like Vanessa is possibly up for long-term spousal support.

BRITNEY SPEARS ENGAGED TO BOYFRIEND JASON TRAWICK
Trawick popped the question at a private dinner Thursday on his 40th birthday, presenting the singer with a three-carat round stone and pave diamond ring. Website TMZ said the pair would be celebrating their engagement Friday night in Las Vegas.
Spears, 30, added fuel to the wedding fire with her own tweet Friday that said “OMG. Last night Jason surprised me with the one gift I’ve been waiting for. Can’t wait to show you! SO SO SO excited!!!!”
The “Toxic” singer has been dating her former agent Trawick since May 2010, after a turbulent few years in her personal and professional life in which she lost custody of her children and was forced to enter rehabilitation after a public meltdown.
She was previously married to dancer Kevin Federline for two years, with whom she has two children. The singer also spontaneously married childhood friend Jason Alexander during a trip to Las Vegas in 2004. That marriage lasted 55 hours before the singer annulled the union.(Reporting by Piya Sinha-Roy; Editing by Bob Tourtellotte)
