Hitched

This month's big surprise in Hollywood hook-ups was runaway bride, Julia Roberts. News of her marriage was a major shocker cuz it seems like yesterday the "it girl" was with Benjamin Bratt. Julia Roberts married her cameraman boyfriend Daniel Moder on July 4, 2002 at her ranch outside of Taos, New Mexico. The lovebugs made it official during a midnight ceremony in front of family and friends. This marks Julia Roberts' second marriage - she was previously married to country singer Lyle Lovett. Hopefully, marriage number two will be forever.

Break-Ups

On July 17, 2002, Tomb Raider, Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from her husband Billy Bob Thornton. The divorce papers state "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the split. Angelina Jolie revealed to Us magazine that the two had been living apart since June of 2002. "Sometimes you don't see things coming, even though they are happening," she said. "It's clear to me that our priorities shifted overnight." Unfortunately, the divorce comes on the heels of their adoption of their 11 month-old son Maddox.

Illness & Injuries

On July 1st, Ozzy's wife Sharon Osbourne, was diagnosed with colon cancer. Sharon had surgery and doctors removed one foot of her colon. Sharon received more bad news, learning that the cancer had spread. She began chemotherapy on July 29, 2002 - her prognosis is still good. Ozzy Osbourne has taken a three-week break from his Ozzfest tour to be with his wife during the first stages of her chemo. Poor Ozzy had to be sedated when he first learned of Sharon's diagnosis. For more on Ozzfest, click here.

In other Osbourne news, Sharon and Ozzy's son Jack injured his left arm after falling two stories from a building on Malibu Pier. Apparently, Jack and a few friends were climbing the building so they could jump in the water. Jack Osbourne lost his grip, fell onto the pier and was taken to the hospital with extreme pain in his arm.
