Bet you didn’t know about this love affair. Jewel spills the dirt that she dated Sean Penn in her new book, Never Broken. The singer-songwriter, 41, writes that she and the Oscar winner were hot and heavy in the mid-’90s, during a break from his future second wife, Robin Wright.

As for Penn, he’s in the news not for his romances but for his current $10 million defamation lawsuit against Lee Daniels over comments the Empire co-creator made to the Hollywood Reporter comparing him to the show’s star, Terrence Howard, who’s been repeatedly accused of domestic violence.


Quick! Ripped off like a Band-Aid. That’s what Blake Shelton is saying about his divorce from Miranda Lambert. “In Oklahoma, it happens so fast,” the country singer said on the Nashville radio program the Bobby Bones Show earlier this week, adding that the process was expedited even further because they had a prenup and no kids.

“Once we filed for divorce, it was over in, like, I think it was like a nine- or 10-day waiting period until it’s over.” The two announced they were splitting in July after four years of marriage.


Awww, but they were so cute together. Comic couple Amy Poehler and Nick Kroll have split after two years together, a source confirms to People. Kroll was Poehler’s first serious boyfriend since her divorce from the father of her two boys, Will Arnett, in 2012. Coincidentally, Arnett recently split with his lady friend, actress Arielle Vandenberg.
