It appears it was more than just a break as Bon Jovi has announced the firing of Richie Sambora from the band.

Us Weekly confirmed Sambora's firing yesterday but the band remains mum on the situation as does Richie.

Richie has not posted anything official about being out of the band yet or released an official statement regarding his firing of a band he has been a part of for 30 years.

Although there is confirmation of the split, they are not saying he has been fired or that he has left, but he is no longer with the band. Odd, right?

Sambora has not performed with the band since at least April 3rd.-DocFB

Diagnosis: Bon Jovi is not Bon Jovi without Sambora.....


Country Music Superstar’s Wife Leaves Him After Cheating With Idol Contestant!

Country music superstar Jason Aldeen was caught kissing with an American Idol contestant at The Den in Hollywood back in September last year. One problem; he was married!

Aldeen may not have to worry about that anymore as US Weekly is reporting that his wife Jessica Ussery has been separated from him since January.

The girl in question is former American Idol contestant Brittany Kerr who was touring with Aldeen when the making out session happened right at the front of The Den on Sunset back in September of last year.

Brittany stated very shortly after that she did not know that Aldeen was married.

When confronted with being with Kerr, Jason had this to say to the press: "It hasn't always been roses. We've been together for a long time and through a lot of things together. Those are things that most people get to deal with in private, but we didn't have the luxury of doing that."

Sigh. You didn't have the luxury because you cheated on your wife in PUBLIC, my man.

Jason's rep is asking for privacy:

"I can confirm that Jason and his wife are having problems, but there is nothing more to share at this time. It's a private family matter, and we hope everyone will respect that he would like to keep it that way."

Cheating sucks....but I have a feeling Kerr and Aldeen will have a LOT of new material for their next albums, respectively.-DocFB

INXS Calls It Quits….15 Years After Michael Hutchence Dies

So I guess that whole let's replace Michael Hutchence with someone else on a reality show finally did not work out, did it? Surprised it took this long. Yes, the Australian rock group INXS has called it quits. It only took 15 years after Michael died for it to happen.

"It is time to step away" "We understand that this must come as a blow to everybody, but all things must eventually come to an end," founding members Tim, Andrew and Jon Farriss, Kirk Pengilly and Garry Beers said in a statement. "We have been performing as a band for 35 years, it's time to step away from the touring arena. Our music will of course live on and we will always be a part of that. We would like to express our heartfelt thanks to all the friends and family that have supported us throughout our extensive career. Our lives have been enriched by having you all as a part of the journey."

The band made the announcement in concert where they ended a tour with Matchbox 20 and Rob Thomas of that group joined them for the final song and they announced it was the band's final show.

The band announced in October that they were going to be working on a new album. Something must have happened between then and now.

Below is the band's final song performance "Don't Change" with Rob Thomas"....-DocFB

Celebrity Couple Separating After 30 Years Of Marriage

Hollywood couples get married and divorced all the time. After 30 years however? Not so much. 30 years in Hollywood is forever and it seems like forever has ended for this couple.

Danny Devito and Rhea Pearlman are separating after 30 years of marriage. They dated for almost 10 years before they were married. Rhea played Devito's girlfriend on "Taxi" back in the day. Devito is currently starring in "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia" on FX.

The couple have 3 adult children. Pearlman played Carla on "Cheers" where she won 4 emmy's. Devito won an emmy for his role as Louie on "Taxi" as well.

The couple own the company "Jersey Films" which was responsible for "Pulp Fiction" along with many other hit movies.

This is very sad news to hear. You do hear about celebrity break-ups all the time and this one just makes me shake my head. They were very careful to not use the "D" word but just let it be known they are separating.-DocFB


Heidi Klum To Seal “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together!”

It just had to get ugly didn't it? A few days ago Seal spoke to cameras outside of LAX where he said it was a shame that Heidi Klum is together with the help (the bodyguard) before they were separated.

Now, I took it as Seal was upset that she is hooking up with the bodyguard before the divorce is final, not separated, because that would allude that Heidi has been with her bodyguard before filing for divorce from Seal.

Seal has said that is what he meant but Heidi is taking it as Seal is trying to badmouth her and make her look bad.

Seal is also going after her $70 million dollar fortune in divorce proceedings so perhaps, even if she was hooking up with the bodyguard after she filed for divorce, it makes her look bad and maybe it isn't the best decision to be hanging with him so much.

Heidi reiterated that she is divorcing Seal because of his anger issues.

This is unfortunately going to get rather ugly. It is pretty certain though that the couple that seemed like a rock this time last year is "Never Ever Getting Back Together" like Taylor Swift says.-DocFB


It Must Have Been “Summer Love” As John Mayer & Katy Perry Break Up

Well, that was shorter than a Kim Kardashian marriage! John Mayer and Katy Perry have officially broken up as Katy was starting to fall for him.

The story has been confirmed by People.com and it appears the break up was mutual.

Katy was seen out with friend in West Hollywood Thursday night and John was chatting up a couple of ladies at the SoHo house.  Hmm.

We wonder if the break-up had to do with what we posted on John Mayer singing "California Girls" and saying it sucks.

Here it is again below for your listening pleasure.

Well, we have been saying that sooner or later, Katy Perry will be hooking up with Robert Pattinson.  Guess it will be happening sooner than we thought!-DocFB



Video: Rihanna Gets Tearful Over Chris Brown; “I Lost My Best Friend; “Who’s Going To Help Him?”

Rihanna opens up to Oprah Winfrey this weekend on her Next Chapter Show which airs on her network OWN. In the interview, Rihanna opens up about Chris Brown and gets tearful.

In talking about the night where Chris Brown beat her and what followed, she says "She lost her best friend" and at the same time worried about "Who was going to look after him" now that she can't.

The restraining order that was put in place to keep Chris away from Rihanna has been long gone and since then, they have recorded songs together and have hung out in clubs, never arriving together, but hanging out nonetheless.

One has to wonder; if Rihanna forgave Chris Brown and got back together with him, would be people be in outrage, or would they forgive Chris because she has?-DocFB
