LeAnn Rimes’ husband files for divorce

Los Angeles — Court records show LeAnn Rimes’ husband, Deane Sheremet, has officially filed for divorce.

The couple announced a divorce was in the works in September, but no paperwork had been filed. Court records show Sheremet filed in Los Angeles on Thursday.

The couple were married in February 2002 and have no children together. The filing cites “irreconcilable differences” for the breakup, and Rimes has been linked with TV-movie co-star Eddie Cibrian for months.

Cibrian filed for divorce from his wife of eight years in August.

Sheremet is seeking spousal support and to have his attorney’s fees paid by Rimes, who is a country singer and actress.

Gosselin divorce final; Kate gets house, kids

Philadelphia — Jon and Kate Gosselin officially divorced Friday after 10 years of marriage, eight children and a year of tabloid headlines.

Kate Gosselin gets the family home in eastern Pennsylvania in the no-fault divorce agreement, according to her lawyer, Mark Momjian. She will also continue as the primary caretaker of the reality TV couple’s 9-year-old twins and 5-year-old sextuplets.

“Divorce is always a difficult process, and in this case there’s obviously the added challenge of being a celebrity and having to deal with the reality of such a large family,” Momjian told The Associated Press. “But I know she is very excited about restructuring her life and looking forward to the new year.”
