While lawyers for Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise insist the details of their divorce settlement are to remain undisclosed, sources close to Holmes say she got exactly what she wanted, according to Us Weekly. “She won and is happy. Very happy. She can move on and finally live her life,” a source says. Holmes reportedly gets primary custody of their daughter, Suri, in the settlement, though Cruise “will be allowed to see Suri, but there are guidelines for the visits,” a source says.

In the run-up to filing for divorce from Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes reportedly looked to pal Victoria Beckham for inspiration, having “secret chats” with the former Spice Girl, according to Now magazine. “Victoria’s been a real tower of strength. Katie’s seen how a normal marriage should function by being around Victoria and David Beckham, so she knew that something was wrong with her relationship with Tom,” a source says. “She and Victoria have been talking a lot. Posh has been trying not to take sides, but she has let Katie know she’ll be there for her whatever she chooses to do.”

After welcoming her first child with husband Sam Cooper in November 2011, Lily Allen is reportedly pregnant again, with a second child due later this year, according to the Sunday Mirror. “She’s pregnant but it’s early. Lily doesn’t want to talk about it yet,” a source says. “Lily has started telling her friends, and everybody in her close circle is so excited for her.” Last month, Allen announced she was back in the recording studio, but those plans may have to wait. “It was a surprise, but Lily and Sam are thrilled,” a source says of the new pregnancy. “The pair of them have loved every minute of parenthood so far and wanted to expand their brood quickly. So it’s great timing.”

Scarlett Johansson is going to make a mint for appearing in a planned sequel to “the Avengers,” reprising her role as Black Widow. The actress has reportedly been offered $20 million for the film, according to the Sun. To put that in perspective, though, co-star Robert Downey Jr. reportedly made $50 million for the first “Avengers” film, which has grossed $1.35 billion worldwide so far.

Kristen Wiig is enjoying her budding romance with Strokes drummer Fabrizio Moretti — who used to date Wiig pal Drew Barrymore — but that doesn’t mean she’s comfortable talking about it. “I am shyer than most people think,” Wiig tells Marie Claire. “I will say that I’m happier than I’ve been and I feel very lucky right now.” As for her departure from “Saturday Night Live” after seven seasons, Wiig says that was always the plan. “I know a lot of people probably assume, ‘Oh, she’s leaving because she is going to be doing movies now and things like that,’ which I will be,” she says. “But I just always knew it was going to be seven and that was it. I think maybe if I were 22, I could see myself staying a little bit, but it just felt like the right time.”

Celebrity DJ Samantha Ronson isn’t pleased with Paris Hilton‘s decision to become a DJ, according to TMZ. “If you’re just like, ‘Oh, I want to figure out how I can make more money this week,’ it insults the people that work really hard at it,” Ronson tells the Web site. “It’s like me calling myself a doctor from reading WebMD twice.”
