Sean and Robin Wright Penn

First there was Mel and Robyn and now it’s Sean Penn and his lady, what is going on with these heavyweight Hollywood couples? We heard that Sean asked for “legal separation with minor children” from his spouse of 13 years, Robin when he filed the papers at a Los Angeles court last Friday (24.04.09). It is not the first time the couple – who have two children together, Dylan, 18, and 15-year-old Hopper Jack – have tried to legally end their stormy marriage. Penn first filed for divorce in December 2007, but his petition was dismissed. Three days later Wright Penn filed her own paperwork. However, in April 2008, they requested to have their divorce petition dismissed as they wanted to give their relationship another try. They attended the Academy Awards together in February, where Penn won his second Best Actor Oscar for his role as openly gay politician Harvey Milk in ‘Milk’. However, when accepting his award, Penn failed to thank his wife. He later insisted it was not a deliberate slight against Robin, he merely wanted to acknowledge people involved with the acclaimed film. He said: “I wanted to keep things focused on the professional team around this movie. Because with Robin comes my mother and my son and my daughter, and half of them will punish me if I mention them.”

Kylie and Andres

While one couple bites the dust, another just keeps getting stronger. Kylie Minogue is set to buy a house with her new boyfriend in Spain. Apparently Kylie wants to settle down with model Andres Velencoso, 31, in the Tossa De Mar area of the Costa Brava, close to where his family live. A source told Britain’s The Sun newspaper: “Things are going really well between Kylie and Andres and she has been spending a lot of time in Spain.  As well as golf, his other passion is scuba-diving, and there are great dive sites at Tossa which he and Kylie have been exploring. He lives in New York but goes home at least once a month so it makes sense for them to have a base there.” We hear Kylie is also making a special effort to learn the lingo picking up a selection of language DVDs…must be serious.
