Wednesday gossip roundup: Ashley Judd files for divorce

After 11 years together, the happy couple are no more.

Ashley Judd and race car-driver husband Dario Franchitti have decided to
call it quits, according to People magazine. “We have mutually decided
to end our marriage,” the ex-couple said in a statement. “We’ll always
be family and continue to cherish our relationship based on the special
love, integrity, and respect we have always enjoyed.” Judd and
Franchitti were married for 11 years before their split.

Lindsay Lohan is no stranger to missing court dates but at least this time she apparently has a good reason. Lohan planned to miss yesterday’s hearing because she was feeling ill, according to E! News. The troubled starlet is still in New York, where she has reportedly come down with the flu, and the condition is said to be serious enough that she managed to get a doctor to declare her unfit to travel.

Alec Baldwin may be preparing for fatherhood again, according to reports from In Touch. Sources tell the magazine that Baldwin’s wife, Hilaria, is pregnant with the couple’s first child. “Hilaria has told only really close friends and family she is pregnant, only a close circle she trusts,” the source says. But Baldwin’s reps are eager to put such claims to rest. “Our response to baby speculation over the past 18 months has remained the same: When and if [Alec and Hilaria Baldwin] have news they want to share, they will share it,” the reps posted via Twitter. “Until then, we have no comment.”

One Direction’s Harry Styles is not one to turn down a request from a fan, even if that fan happens to be the daughter of a paparazzo. A London photographer recently pressed the boy-bander for an autograph for his daughter, Emma, and Styles was happy to oblige, according to Xposure Photos. His message? “Dear Ella, Please tell your daddy to go away. Love from Harry x”

A recent report from Radar Online has Jennifer Lawrence attempting to introduce her “Silver Linings Playbook” co-star, Bradley Cooper, to recently single pal Taylor Swift. “It was a little awkward for Bradley. Jennifer came to him and told him that Taylor was interested in getting together. He had to politely decline, knowing full well that Jennifer and Taylor are friends,” a source says. But the Oscar-nominated actor insists to Extra that it’s all a load of nonsense. “Crazy, never met her, that’s not even true at all,” Cooper says. “That’s completely made up.”
