Christina Aguilera splits from husband



Get your low down on what's happening in the world of Hollywood, right here!

Pop singer Christina Aguilera has split from her husband of nearly five years, Jordan Bratman.

Aguilera, 29, was seen in a tearful embrace with a good friend as news of her split from 33-year-old music executive Bratman emerged.

According to US Weekly, the two have been separated for a few months, and are now living apart, but they are yet to decide whether they will get a divorce or not.

'They have been separated for a few months,' the Daily Mail quoted a source close to Aguilera as telling the magazine.

'They were very much in love. But over the last six months, it became clear they were more like friends than husband and wife,' the source revealed.

However the pair are reportedly trying their hardest to remain on friendly terms for the sake of their two-year-old son, Max.

'Christina is doing her best to be a great mum. She has a lot to juggle, but she's learning how to make it work and balance it all,' the source added.

Morgan Freeman to get lifetime achievement award

Oscar winner Morgan Freeman is set to be honoured with a lifetime achievement award.

He will receive the award from the American Film Institute (AFI) on June 9.

AFI chair Sir Howard Stringer called Freeman "an American treasure" who brought a calm authority to his roles, "whether playing a prisoner, a president or God."

Freeman, 73, will be the 39th recipient of the AFI Lifetime Achievement award. Others include Jack Nicholson, Steven Spielberg, Barbra Streisand, Elizabeth Taylor, Alfred Hitchcock and Martin Scorsese, reports the BBC.

Stringer said Freeman had an "unmistakable voice that echoes through the hearts and minds of movie lovers around the world".

The AFI's Lifetime Achievement award is considered one of the highest honours in the US for a film actor.

Freeman's ceremony will take place in Los Angeles -- it will be broadcast on US TV towards the end of June.

George Michael off to rehab

George Michael has checked into a rehab to overcome his drug addiction.

'I want to beat my drug addiction and lead a normal life,' the Sun quoted him as saying while leaving home in the early hours this week.

As he was chauffeured from his house, he said: "I don't want to end up back in prison. It's a very horrible place to be.

'You're not considered a person when you're inside, you're just a number and that freaked me out.

'I have done wrong and paid my time for doing this stupid crime and I want to get my life back on track,' he added.

George -- with his two Labradors -- was then whisked away in his Range Rover from his flash pad in Highgate, North London.

His partner, Kenny Goss, rubbished George's rehab claim as "nonsense" and said he had probably gone out to walk his dogs.

But in the afternoon George's Range Rover returned -- without the star or his pets.

When Kenny was asked where George was, he replied simply: "Relaxing."

George's aides refused to speculate on where he was.

But a source said: 'If he said he was going into rehab, we have no reason to disbelieve him.'
