Danny DeVito splits from wife, Demi Lovato, Nicole Kidman and more
Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman are separating.
The 67-year-old actor and the ‘Cheers’ actress – who met in 1970 and tied the knot in 1982 – are splitting after 30 years of marriage, a representative for the couple has confirmed to gossip website TMZ.com.
Danny and Rhea, 64, met when she went to see off-Broadway play, ‘The Shrinking Bride’, which the ‘Twins’ actor was appearing in.
The couple – who have three children Lucy, Grace and Jacob, together – founded production company Jersey Films, which is behind 1994 crime movie ‘Pulp Fiction’ as well as ‘Garden State’ and ‘Freedom Writers’.
Demi Lovato underwent a “friend cleanse” after she checked out of rehab.
The US ‘X Factor’ judge entered a treatment facility in October 2010 to seek help for an eating disorder, self harm and bipolar disorder and says when she left in January 2011, part of her plan to turn her life around was to make sure she only spent time with people who truly cared about her.
She said: “I’m consistently busy, but I make sure I spend a lot of time with my friends and family. I did kind of a friend cleanse right after rehab, where I weeded out people who didn’t have my best interests at heart.
“Now I have friends who love me for who I am and don’t care about what I’m doing. Most of them aren’t in the industry. Some of them don’t even know my songs!”
Nicole Kidman says Keith Urban “opened up” her sexuality.
The 45-year-old actress – who has daughters Sunday, four, and Faith, 22 months, with her husband of six years – admits she has always been shy but the support of her spouse has given her the courage to try new things.
She told Harper’s Bazaar magazine: “He just gave me confidence through just being very kind to me and understanding me, opening me up to trying things, my sexuality, those sort of things.”
Prior to her marriage to Keith, Nicole was wed to Tom Cruise – with who she raises children Isabella, 19, and 17-year-old Conor – for 10 years until 2001 and she admits she relied a lot on the ‘Rock of Ages’ star for support because she felt so uncomfortable making public appearances.
“In those early years, it was like, ‘I’m here and I’m clutching onto your arm and it all feels a little overwhelming and really strange.’
“And I was shy. Deeply shy. I didn’t feel comfortable at all. But I felt very comfortable at home.”
