    April 2006 Celebrity Break-Ups

  • After just 82 days of marriage, Eminem has filed for divorce, again, from wife Kim Mathers. The couple was originally married in 1999, but split in 2001. Their first divorce resulted in an ugly custody battle for their daughter, Hailie, but somehow the pair reconciled their differences and re-married in January 2006.
  • Rap and R&B "IT" kids, Bow Wow and Ciara, have gone their separate ways after a year of dating. Statements released by Ciara's reps have said the split was not amicable and there are rumors of Bow Wow being spotted in public with another girl - while he was supposedly still dating Ciara!
  • April 2006 Celebrity Baby News

  • The much anticipated birth of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes' baby finally happened. Little Suri Holmes Cruise was born on April 18, 2006 - ironically on the same day that Brooke Shields gave birth to her second child, Grier Hammond Henley.
  • Gwyneth Paltrow and hubby Chris Martin welcomed their second child into the world in early April. Their baby son has been named Moses and the couple already have a three-year old named Apple.
  • April 2006 Celebrity Contracts
  • A big-screen adaptation of the popular TV show, Baywatch, is in the works and Jessica Simpson is rumored to be taking on Pamela Anderson's old role of CJ Parker.
  • Rumors are flying that The O.C. bad-girl, Mischa Barton, is desperate to get out of her contract with FOX. She apparently has been arriving late for work on a regular basis and calls in sick just as often. Reps for the show say they will not comment on the rumors. Could this mean the end to the Marissa/Ryan drama forever?
  • Mariah Carey is looking to boost her popularity after signing on to be the latest spokesperson for Pepsi. Her contract involves Mariah starring in various Pepsi commercials as well as writing and producing 20 exclusive Pepsi ringtones!
  • April 2006 Other Celebrity News

  • Keira Knightley donated her 2006 Oscar gown to world charity, Oxfam, to raise money for aid in drought-effected east Africa. The dress sold for close to $10,000 on ebay.
  • Lindsay Lohan is also looking to lend a hand to those in need in east Africa by planning a trip to Kenya in the coming months. Lindsay will head to the country with an organization called One Campaign and she will visit schools and medical clinics while there.
