DISH: Kanye West is allegedly ready to dump Kim Kardashian
The tabloid claims Kim is "binge-eating" and "heartbroken."
In Touch claims the rapper is "gravitating toward recording artist Iggy Azalea." A friend of Kim calls the story "rubbish."
NBC has finally announced what we already knew: Jay Leno is out as host of The Tonight Show come Spring 2014 and Jimmy Fallon is in.
Fallon closed a new deal with NBC Wednesday morning, and Leno followed soon after with his statement on the matter.
"Congratulations Jimmy. I hope you're as lucky as me and hold on to the job until you're the old guy. If you need me, I'll be at the garage."
Leno had been the host for 22 years.
Saturday Night Live veteran Seth Meyers is said to be the current frontrunner to replace Jimmy Fallon in NBC's 12:35 a.m. time slot.
As Jay Leno is heading out, it's no surprise, Jimmy Kimmel is a happy camper.
The Jimmy Kimmel Live host, who has made no secret of his feelings for Leno, is apparently a fan of Fallon, tweeting congratulations to his late-night rival after NBC formally announced the funnyman will take over the Tonight Show chair in spring 2014.
congratulations to my dear, sweet @jimmyfallon - a formidable rival and an incredible lover— Jimmy Kimmel (@jimmykimmel) April 3, 2013
Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora has left the band's current tour.
A statement posted on their site says, "Due to personal issues, Richie will not be performing on this upcoming leg. All shows will go on as scheduled."
They didn't elaborate so naturally, there's talk that he may have fallen off the wagon again. Two years ago, Richie skipped 13 shows to go to rehab for alcoholism. It was his third stint in rehab.
But maybe not.
Thank you everyone for your concern. I'm well, but had to stay in LA to take care of a personal matter. Love you all and see you very soon.— Richie Sambora (@TheRealSambora) April 3, 2013
Meanwhile, TMZ says Richie is clean and this is about a "war" that has "exploded" between Richie and Jon Bon Jovi.
Supposedly, they're fighting over money, and Richie is upset because he thinks Jon treats him like crap.
A "source" says, "It's a classic Jagger/Richards blowup."
Obviously, if that's the case, Richie could return whenever he and Jon are able to patch things up. That is, if they can patch things up.
Regardless, the current leg of the tour runs through April 25th in San Jose.
Next month, they head to South Africa for a couple shows, before beginning a European tour that runs through July 5th. After Europe, they will return to the U.S.
