Michelle Branch and Patrick Carney Are Married. Love certainly was everywhere for Michelle Branch and Patrick Carney on Saturday night. The singer and The Black Keys drummer tied the knot in New Orleans at the beautiful Marigny Opera House, which also happened to be the same place where Solange married Alan Ferguson just under five years ago. The "All You Wanted" artist posted a screenshot of People's notification about their wedding later in the evening and added, "Can confirm." Branch's friend Anda shared photos and videos of the nuptials on social media, including Branch walking down the aisle with her new husband as well as Branch being escorted by her father to the altar. It looked like a perfectly sunny day in the Big Easy as attendees partied in a brick courtyard after the ceremony with bistro lights hanging over them. It seems like famous chef Andrew Zimmern was also there because he showed up in some of the social media videos and commented on one of Branch's earlier photos from an outing in New Orleans. Branch and Carney's big day comes about two years after announcing their engagement. The Black Keys drummer popped the question on his new wife's 34th birthday on July 3, 2017. "Thank you for all the birthday love and wishes. Last night, right before I blew out my candles, @officerpatrickcarney asked me to marry him and then I had nothing left to wish for," she captioned a photo of sparklers and her stunning engagement ring. "34 might be the best year yet." The happy couple revealed in February 2018 that they were expecting their first child together and Branch's second child. She and her ex-husband Teddy Landau also have a 13-year-old daughter named Owen Isabelle Landau together. Branch explained in her Instagram pregnancy announcement that their wedding would be "postponed" because they found out about "this little surprise." She gave birth to their son Rhys James Carney on August 28, 2018. Branch shared a few photos from before her big wedding day in New Orleans. On Friday, she posted a picture of herself and Carney sharing a kiss in front of a bar. "Love is in the air (and tequila after champagne was a bad idea)," she captioned it. The 35-year-old singer also uploaded a coozie from the famous po-boy shop Domilise's Restaurant and wrote, "we here." Congratulations on the wedding! (Eonline)

YouTube Star Nash Grier Is Expecting His First Child. It's going to be a party of three in the YouTube star's house! Nash Grier, who first rose to fame on the platform Vine, announced he and his fiancee, Taylor Giavasis, are expecting their first child. "1+1=3," the social media personality captioned his sweet Instagram post. His bride-to-be, on the other hand, shared a lengthy message about her pregnancy. For her, she said she feels "honored" to "experience such a gift." "As long as I can remember I've wanted to be a mommy," she began her Instagram caption. "I've always been enthralled with pregnancy and the joy/strength that come with motherhood. I am honored to be able to experience such a gift. The love and support Nash and I have received has made us feel like the luckiest people on earth." She added, "We look forward to the future and sharing the rest of our journey." The announcement comes as a surprise to many, especially after Grier shut down pregnancy rumors back in December. "Thanks for the wishes but we're not pregnant, we've just been eating good," he tweeted before the Christmas holidays. Now, as he looks back, the 21-year-old influencer says, "Little did we know." Nash proposed to his fiancee last month, and the two were already aware of the pregnancy. "I was holding Taylor's belly the whole time after I proposed," the YouTube star said of his proposal, which he captured on video and uploaded to his social media accounts. "idk how y'all missed that." Naturally, many couldn't believe they missed that detail. One follower wrote, "I was focused on you two getting married I've never thought u were pregnant." Another commented, "I just thought it was a loving hold." The couple began dating in 2015 and moved in together in 2016. And, as they say, the rest is history. Congrats to the couple on the new addition to their family! (Eonline)

Adele and Husband Simon Konecki Split. Adele and her husband, Simon Konecki, have officially called it quits. The Grammy-winner and her long-time partner have decided to separate after being together for an upwards of eight years, the 30-year-old star's representatives confirmed to several publications via the Associated Press on Friday evening. The couple share a 6-year-old son, Angelo James, whom Adele gave birth to back in 2012. Konecki has a daughter from a previous marriage, and they plan to co-parent their child together. Of the couple's separation, the hit-maker's reps said in a statement that "They are committed to raising their son together lovingly." The statement continued, "As always, they ask for privacy. There will be no further comment." Fans of the English singer-songwriter might recall the two were rumored to have tied the knot in 2017, however, Adele or Simon never confirmed when they officially got married. With that said, they've have been together for quite some time -- they began dating at the end of 2011. Both the 30-year-old star and her husband have been extremely private throughout their relationship. In 2016, the "Hello" singer's fans went crazy during her Adele Live tour when they began theorizing Simon sent her love messages. Concert attendees noticed there were pink strips falling from the ceiling and the saw colorful notes with handwritten messages that read "I love you," "Love you long time" and "You are an angel." Fans immediately started believing that Konecki was behind it. At the time, they were celebrating their fifth anniversary as a couple. The night before, she told her audience she was getting the baby itch. "My womb is starting to ache a little bit. It's like, 'Baby, baby, baby. Need a baby, need a baby,'" she joked to the crowd. "I'm not pregnant. I won't get pregnant until the end of the tour." However, Adele told Vanity Fair in 2016 that she was "too scared" to get pregnant again. "I had really bad postpartum depression after I had my son," she said, adding, "and it frightened me." More recently, the "Rolling in the Deep" singer was seen heading into a recording studio alone in New York City. She was photographed without her wedding ring. (Eonline)

Michelle Williams and Husband Phil Elverum Split. It's over between Michelle Williams and Phil Elverum. The 38-year-old Oscar nominee, Dawson's Creek alum and the 40-year-old indie rock musician Phil Elverum have split after less than a year of marriage, E! News learned on Friday. Michelle has recently been seen without a wedding band in public. "Michelle and Phil separated at the beginning of the year," a source close to the situation told People, which first reported the news. "It was an amicable spilt and they remain friends." It was revealed in July that Michelle had recently married Phil in a secret, intimate wedding ceremony in upstate New York and that the two, who met through a mutual friend, had moved in together. Her and late ex Heath Ledger's daughter Matilda, now 13, and Phil's small daughter Agathe were among the few guests. "I never gave up on love," Williams told Vanity Fair at the time. "I always say to Matilda, 'Your dad loved me before anybody thought I was talented, or pretty, or had nice clothes.'" "Obviously I've never once in my life talked about a relationship," she said. "But Phil isn't anyone else. And that's worth something. Ultimately the way he loves me is the way I want to live my life on the whole. I work to be free inside of the moment. I parent to let Matilda feel free to be herself, and I am finally loved by someone who makes me feel free." Heath's father, Kim Ledger, later told the Sydney Morning Herald's The Goss that his family was "terribly happy" for Michelle over her and Phil's marriage. In September, Michelle and Phil were photographed together for the first time, and looked very much in love while antique shopping in upstate New York. The two also looked happy together while on a stroll in October. Amid the split, Michelle has been keeping busy promoting her role in FX's new miniseries Fosse/Verdon, which also stars Sam Rockwell.

The Pitch Perfect co-stars have decided to go their separate ways after two years of marriage. "We can confirm that we have decided to separate, and this decision was made mutually and amicably," Camp and Astin tell E! News in a joint statement.

"He's just so great, and he's a Libra too. We didn't really have a scene together, but he's just such a fun guy. He's great." In that same interview with Glamour, Camp also revealed that she was a little hesitant about the romance. "He was dating somebody, and I had been through [a divorce] and he was like, 'Do you want to go on a date?'" Camp recalled. "I remember thinking, Well, he's younger than me. He's five years younger. He's 26, and I'm 31. But I was like, 'You know what? OK! Let's do it, let's see.' He's literally my best friend." In Jan. 2016, Camp and Astin shared their engagement news with the world. "I asked. She said yes!!" Astin told his Instagram followers. Camp then followed up his post by writing, "He asked. I said YES!!!!"

Anna Camp Officially Files for Divorce From Skylar Astin. Anna Camp has filed for divorce from Skylar Astin in Los Angeles on Friday, E! News has learned. The 36-year-old actress "cited irreconcilable differences and asked to terminate court ability to award support to both petitioner and respondent," a source shares with us. While not many details have been issued, the Pitch Perfect stars announced their split earlier today. The two told E! News they "decided to separate" after two years of marriage. "We can confirm that we have decided to separate, and this decision was made mutually and amicably," Camp and Astin said in a joint statement. "We kindly ask for privacy as we navigate this transition." The pair married back in September 2016, but fans began to speculate the two weren't together in recent months. For example, their last Instagram post together was in January. What's more? The two weren't following each other on the social media platform. Furthermore, almost a month before the famous couple announced their split, they listed their 1923 Spanish-style house in Los Feliz. Currently, the listing is still active on both Zillow and Compass; it was put on the market on April 8. Four months before their wedding, the pair reportedly purchased their home for $1.98 million, according to US Weekly. The gated-property features a large kitchen, three bedrooms and a bonus room. The home has French doors that lead to the backyard, which is complete with a serene pool and spa. Above the two-car garage, there's a studio apartment with a bathroom and kitchen. Camp and Astin first met on the set of Pitch Perfect, but in an interview with Glamour in 2014, the 36-year-old star revealed they started off as friends. "We were friends first and just hit it off," she told the publication. "He's just so great, and he's a Libra too. We didn't really have a scene together, but he's just such a fun guy. He's great." At the time, Skylar was "dating somebody" and she had just "been through a divorce" so she didn't feel ready to be linked to someone romantically. "He was dating somebody, and I had been through [a divorce] and he was like, 'Do you want to go on a date?'" She added, "I remember thinking, Well, he's younger than me. He's five years younger. He's 26, and I'm 31. But I was like, 'You know what? OK! Let's do it, let's see.' He's literally my best friend." (Eonline)

Tensions rise in Lori Loughlin's marriage after admissions scandal. The Loughlin-Giannulli house is full of mixed emotions after the college admissions scandal. While "Full House" star Lori Loughlin's daughter Olivia Jade Giannulli partied last week with friends, her parents are feuding as reality sets in about the gravity of their federal wire fraud and money laundering charges. "Lori is constantly arguing with Mossimo because she is beginning to grasp that they are in very serious jeopardy," a source told Us Weekly. Loughlin and her designer husband Mossimo Giannulli are charged with paying $500,000 to have Olivia Jade and her sister, Isabella Rose Giannulli, 20, admitted into the University of Southern California as fake crew recruits. If convicted, they could face 40 years in prison. Meanwhile, their 19-year-old daughter was spotted Thursday letting loose with fellow YouTube stars David Dobrik and Heather Hussar at Dobrik's home in Studio City, Calif., TMZ reported. Back home, Loughlin's inner circle pins the scandal on Giannulli. "Everyone feels bad for her. They think the situation was something concocted by her husband," a second Us Weekly source said. "Her friends don't like him." The couple pleaded not guilty. (TMZ)

Chad Michael Murray Reveals Jamie Lee Curtis Once Made Out With Him to Prove a Point on the Freaky Friday Set. Plot twist! Back in 2003, fans watched Chad Michael Murray's Freaky Friday character fictionally pine after Lindsay Lohan's mom on-camera. But in this revelatory clip from Thursday's Busy Tonight, the Riverdale actor reveals things got a little freaky behind-the-scenes too. Replying to a question from host Busy Philipps (who's also his former Dawson's Creek costar) about a notable piece of advice someone gave him during the earlier part of his acting career, Chad dives headfirst into a play-by-play retelling of that fateful day on set when Jamie Lee Curtis planted one on him unexpectedly -- for real! Wondering how this delightfully meta offscreen make out sesh came to fruition? Aren't we all: "I was Lindsay Lohan's first kiss," Chad starts off. And being that she was just 16 at the time, she was pretty nervous about it. Totally understandable, though Jamie was keen on snapping her out of it. "Jamie's like, 'Alright, get in my trailer.'" Busy's guest continues. "And she's talking to Lindsay... like, 'Just kiss him. Come on, just give him a pop kiss, it's no big deal. Let's break the ice now.'" When her onscreen daughter still didn't go for it, Jamie took the whole ice-breaking thing into her own hands. "She goes, 'Oh, come on,'" Chad remembers. And then: "She just grabs me by the back of the head and makes out with me in the moment." Wait, back up. "Jamie Lee Curtis?!" Busy clarifies -- mouth agape -- while the audience cheers. Seriously, anyone else feel like Chad deserves a high-five right now? It sounds like he'd probably have to agree with that. "I went, 'Dude, I just made out with Jamie Lee Curtis,'" he says, recalling the after-glow. "'This is cool. This is great.'" (Eonline)

Cardi B Rejects Plea Deal in Strip Club Fight Case. Cardi B is making no plea deals as of yet with regard to her alleged ordered assault of two bartending sisters. In October, the Grammy-winning "Money" rapper was arrested on suspicion of ordering the attack at a strip club in Queens, NY the previous August. She had allegedly believed one of the sisters was involved with her husband Offset, whose group Migos was performing at the venue. Cardi was charged with two counts of reckless endangerment in the second degree and one count of assault in the third degree, both misdemeanors, and released. Before turning herself over to police, she reportedly denied any involvement in the alleged fight. On Friday, Cardi appeared in court in Queens and E! News learned that she rejected a plea deal under which she would have pleaded guilty to one of the misdemeanors and would have received a conditional discharge. Her next hearing was scheduled for May 31.

Cardi posted on Instagram a photo of herself at home wearing her court outfit, a long white sleeveless Christian Siriano pantsuit, paired with an olive Birkin bag and aviator sunglasses. "COURT FLOW @csiriano X Birkinp---y," she wrote. (Eonline)

Fight over Prince's $200M estate could go on for years. It's been 35 months and 30 days since you've been away ... Sunday will mark the third anniversary of Prince's death from an opioid overdose at the age of 57. And yet the "Purple Rain" singer's estate remains as unsettled as it was the day he died in his Paisley Park mansion outside Minneapolis. The songwriter's estate, which includes master tapes of his recordings and a 10,000-square-foot Caribbean villa, has been estimated at $200 million. But it is unclear what it will be worth after it's been picked apart by an army of bickering heirs, lawyers and consultants who are racking up bills. Currently, the heirs are enmeshed in a battle to rein in the estate's administrator, which has already blown through $45 million in administrative expenses, according to a probate-court petition filed by Prince's designated heirs. They have requested "a transition plan" for a new administrator, which is scheduled for the end of June, according to court documents. The bickering has Mark Eghrari, a Long Island estate planning attorney who has written about Prince's probate problems, predicting the "Cream" singer's estate will remain in limbo for "a full decade." The longest he has witnessed is "30 years and counting." "As it is, I've no doubt that lawyers, accountants and administrators will be the primary beneficiaries of Prince's estate," he said. "That's a terrible shame." By contrast, probate in New York generally takes a year or two, whether or not the deceased left a will. Prince had no will and his six heirs -- all siblings -- had to be chosen by a judge. Indeed, efforts to bleed the estate dry began soon after Prince died in April 2016 -- when more than 45 people stepped forward to claim they were his heirs. Some presented themselves as a wife or a sibling, according to an AP report. One Colorado inmate claimed to be the artist's son -- until a DNA test proved otherwise. The list of Prince's heirs has since been narrowed down to his full sister, Tyka Nelson, and half siblings Norrine Nelson, Sharon Nelson, John Nelson, Alfred Jackson and Omarr Baker. Until recently, the heirs had been bitterly split, but they came together this year in their effort to challenge Comerica, the court-appointed Dallas bank that became the estate's administrator after a temporary nine-month stint in that capacity by St. Paul, Minn.-based Bremer Trust. In a petition filed in February, the heirs claimed Comerica is $31 million behind on estate taxes that "continue to accumulate interest." They said they "do not agree with Comerica's cashflow projections, accounting, or inventory of estate assets." And they complained that Comerica was unresponsive to their concerns. "The heirs are understandably frustrated that, three years after their brother's death, the estate is not ready to be closed," Comerica said in court filings. But Comerica insisted it should not be fired. "No one is better suited to effectively administer the estate than Comerica," the company said, while insisting it is "making all necessary tax payments" required to settle the estate. (PageSix)

Lorraine Warren, the real-life paranormal investigator whose work inspired the 'Conjuring' horror franchise, has died. Lorraine died quietly and peacefully earlier this week, according to her grandson, Chris McKinnell. He said, "Last night my grandmother, Lorraine Warren, quietly and peacefully left us to join her beloved Ed. She was happy and laughing until the very end." Lorraine and her husband, Ed, who died in 2006, were world-renowned paranormal investigators whose casework sparked James Wan's horror film franchise. Lorraine's character was played by Vera Farmiga. Lorraine -- born on January 31, 1927 -- and Ed investigated scores of paranormal cases, but none more famous than what went down in Amityville, NY. That creepy case inspired the 1977 book, "The Amityville Horror" ... as well as the 1979 horror flick and the 2005 remake. In "The Conjuring," Lorraine's character investigates a haunted Rhode Island farmhouse, but not before the film introduces the audience to the infamous Annabelle doll in the opening scene -- showing 2 roommates getting tortured by the doll with creepy messages on the walls. Years later, Lorraine and Ed would go on to create a museum featuring the haunted objects they had kept from their investigations ... including the real Annabelle doll. Lorraine was 92. RIP. (TMZ)
