Astonishing Celebrity Divorces of 2016

The two have six children – some adopted from third-world countries in Asia and Africa. Jolie was the one who initiated the divorce, claiming the reason she filed for divorce was “for the health of the family.”

Jim Bob, Michelle Duggar divorce rumors

Due to a committed display of Christian family values, a Duggar divorce may have seemed impossible just over a year and a half ago. However, the Duggar tower of morality is starting to show its cracks, which began with 28-year-old Josh Duggar’s multiple sex scandals, which should never have happened had he been practicing what he preaches.

Earlier in November, alongside discussion about the couple’s poor choice in handling their son Josh’s assault of his sisters, rumors of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar divorcing had begun circulating around various social media. Instead of reporting Josh to the proper authorities, the couple chose to hide the secret in their home and many speculate that this was detrimental.

Upon discovery of his crimes, Josh was sent to a faith-based rehabilitation center. The same method was applied to Josh after the public learned that he had cheated on his wife, Anna Keller Duggar.

Amid these controversies, the Duggar family managed to get signed on to star in another reality television series, Counting On, in 2015. However, the show was canceled due to low ratings and due to the fact that advertisers threatened to cut their ties with Silver Spring, Maryland-based cable and satellite television network TLC if the show continued to be on the air.

Israel Houghton clarifies that Texas is not suing him for back child support

Christian music singer-songwriter Israel Houghton, 45, denied claims he was being sued by the Texas Attorney General’s Office for not paying child support for his two children. Houghton is now engaged to recording artist Adrienne Bailon, 33.

Sources privy to the matter said Houghton always goes “above and beyond” to take care of his children and confirmed Houghton’s ex did not file any lawsuit implicating him of trying to neglect his parental duties. Jojo Pada, Houghton’s representative, said the rumor, which was first reported by entertainment news network Bossip, was “inaccurate and misleading.” Further, the case that the Texas Attorney General’s Office planned to file against Houghton had nothing to do with child support. Pada added, “Mr. Houghton has and continues to provide financial support for the children at issue. Nothing in the filing by the Texas State Attorney General states or alleges otherwise.”
