Angelina Jolie has parted ways with divorce lawyer Laura Wasser. My source tells me Angelina is focused on “healing her family,” and hopes to find a more peaceful path on her road to divorce from Brad Pitt.
Their split has been one of the most contentious Hollywood divorces in a while. Courts have gotten involved more than once, with a judge recently stepping in and ruling that Brad had to be granted more time with their six children.
Angelina’s spokesperson says, “Angelina has decided to change counsel to Samantha Bley Dejean, as Samantha’s expertise is the protection and best interest of children.” I am told that it this point it is likely that the custody with be a 50/50 split.
Comedian Louis C.K. performed a surprise stand-up set last night at New York’s Comedy Cellar. It was his first live comedic performance since admitting to sexual misconduct last November.

Ed Sheeran is playing coy about reports that he secretly married his fiancee Cherry Seaborn. During a recent interview, he refused to elaborate on his marital status, but discussed the kind of wedding he’d want. “I don’t like large groups of people at the best of times so… I never wanted a wedding that was lots of people,” he notes. Ed also says he wouldn’t sing at his own wedding or have another famous musician perform. Instead, he’d rather have an “unknown” artist onstage.
Elon Musk is skipping the Burning Man festival this year. The Tesla founder has been making headlines for erratic behavior and rumors of drug use, so apparently he can’t afford to be seen partying so hard. Elon has gone to the Nevada festival for the last nine years, describing it as “take the craziest LA party and multiply it by a thousand, and it doesn’t even get close.”
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen seem relatively normal in a new interview with the “Wall Street Journal”. If you can believe it, they’re 32 years old already, and they still do everything together.
They describe their relationship as, “a marriage and a partnership” that has its “ups and downs.”
As for their relative media silence, Ashley says, “I don’t know if it’s because of the way we grew up . . . we just don’t like talking about ourselves or talking about what we’re doing . . . It’s not really our approach.”
John Goodman has spilled on what they’ve done to Roseanne’s character on “The Conners”. Details at 8:40.
No one has ever said how Roseanne Barr’s absence will be addressed on “The Conners” . . . but John Goodman may have just let the cat out of the bag: In a new interview, he said she’s dead.
He was asked about his character’s future, and he said, “It’s an unknown. I guess he’ll be mopey and sad because his wife’s dead.”
This was basically the most likely solution . . . in the last couple episodes of “Roseanne”, she was dealing with a secret addiction to prescription painkillers . . . (But not Ambien.) . . . and heading for knee surgery
So, there’s two ways she can die right there.
Elsewhere in the interview, John said he hasn’t been in touch with Roseanne recently. He did send her a thank you e-mail when she signed away her rights to the show, but he didn’t hear back from her.
He said, “She was going through hell at the time.”
John also said he was “surprised” by the cancellation and the fall-out, but added, “I know for a fact that she’s not a racist.”
“The Conners” premieres on October 16th.
