Phoenix, AZ- This week some brought a couple of new celebrity divorce filings—actor Michael Vartan and Pamela Anderson–a reignited divorce battle between Burt Reynolds, and a new round of rumors about an impending split between pop diva Beyoncé and business mogul/rapper Jay-Z.
Former Alias star Michael Vartan, 45, was hit with divorce papers just three days after his third wedding anniversary. His soon-to-be ex-wife Lauren Skaar, a real-estate agent, cited irreconcilable differences in her filing and is seeking spousal support from the actor, according to People magazine, and with the right divorce attorney she could get it.
Skaar’s filing states the couple separated in April.
Vartan, who is currently starring in “Bates Motel,” met Skarr at Whole Foods in LA, but the couple didn’t start dating right away. A few months after their initial meeting Vartan and Skaar began dating, and a couple of years later they tied the knot in Newport Beach, California.
In an appearance on “The View,” Vartan said Skaar was “the one,” but unfortunately love doesn’t always last. Look like Vartan will have to shelve his desire to have children for the time being.
News also broke this week that Pamela Anderson planned to divorce husband Rick Salomon for the second time after their brief six month marriage. She filed for divorce just two days before Salomon, an avid gambler, won a $2 million jackpot in a poker game.
Anderson’s and Salomon’s first marriage was in 2007 and was annulled just two months later. But Anderson who has a string of failed marriages behind her, may be having second thoughts.
Just a couple of days after she filed for divorce, TMZ snapped a photo of the Anderson and Salomon sharing an embrace and an affectionate kiss, leading to rumors that Anderson may have changed her mind about divorcing Salomon again.
Also this week, the 20 year divorce battle between Loni Anderson and Burt Reynolds reared its head. TMZ learned that Loni is still pursing Reynolds for the money he still owes her from their 1993 divorce.
Anderson and Reynolds had a pretty nasty divorce with her accusing him of being abusive and him accusing her of sleeping around. There were allegations of drug use and a host of other nasty things so needless to say their divorce was a bit ugly. And after 20 years, it’s still ugly.
At the time of their divorce Reynolds agreed to pay Anderson $250,000; he paid some, but not all. TMZ learned that two months ago Anderson went back to court demanding Reynolds pay her what he owes which swelled from $97,000 to $154,000 because of the interest.
This week also brought a new round of rumors that Beyoncé and Jay-Z are heading to divorce. Celebrity gossip gurus allege that Jay-Z has been cheating on Beyoncé. However, there is no way of telling if any of those rumors are true. If they are this would be the divorce battle of the decade and would be very fruitful for a divorce attorney. Let’s just hope for the sake of Blue Ivy, there is no divorce in her parents’ future.
