Question: Jon and Kate Gosselin, Mathew and Tina Knowles, Elin and Tiger Woods-what will all of these celebrities be getting for Christmas?
Celebrity wannabe Jon Gosselin’s 15 minutes of fame are almost over. Earlier this week, his divorce with spiky-haired wife Kate Gosselin was finalized. Jon and Kate’s marriage of 10 years ended due to…um….bickering over who had the right to exploit their children more. Kate, who has always been “reluctant” to make her life the topic of public speculation, made a statement about the divorce.
“This has been a challenging transition for all of us, but I am confident that we will move ahead with the important task of restructuring our lives.”
In other news, Beyonce’s mother Tina Knowles must listen to her daughter’s music. After 29 years of marriage, she has decided to put husband Mathew Knowles to the left. Stylist and fashion designer Tina Knowles filed a petition for divorce from her husband Mathew Knowles after almost a year of physical separation.
While the exact cause of the divorce is unknown, Tina and Mathew Knowles have been separated since January. In October, Mathew Knowles was hit with a paternity suit from a woman named Alexsandra Wright.
Both Tina and Mathew Knowles have played important roles in daughter Beyonce’s career. Mathew Knowles managed Destiny’s Child and he stills serves as Beyonce’s manager. Beyonce’s father also is the founder of World Music Entertainment Record Label. Artists Beyonce, Solange, Kelly Rowland, and Michelle Williams are all on the label.
Tina Knowles designed costumes for Destiny’s Child and she co-founded fashion label House of Dereon with daughters Beyonce and Solange Knowles. News of a split between the couple has been rumored for months. No word yet if Beyonce will drop Mathew Knowles as her manager.
Mrs. Knowles isn’t the only one that has an allergy to an alleged “cheet-ah.” Elin Nordegren Woods has reportedly hired a divorce lawyer. Sorrell Trope has worked for high profile clients like Nicole Kidman, Britney Spears, and Nicholas Cage. It has also been reported that that Elin has hired movers to remove some of Tiger’s possessions from their Florida Mansion.
And I thought Santa only brought toys.
