Kardashian, Odom to divorce
After months of speculation, Khloe Kardashian is ending her four-year marriage to Lamar Odom.
The reality TV star filed for divorce Friday in Los Angeles County Superior Court, citing irreconcilable differences. She also wants her last name restored to Kardashian from Kardashian Odom.
The filing comes days after Odom pleaded no contest last Monday to a misdemeanor drunken driving charge.
Kardashian, 29, is best known for starring with her sisters Kim and Kourtney, and her mother, Kris Jenner, in the long-running reality TV series “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.”
‘Teen Mom’ arrested again
One of the stars of MTV’s “Teen Mom 2” has been arrested in South Carolina and charged with breaching the peace.
Jail records show Jenelle Lauren Evans, 21, was booked into the Horry County jail just after 5 p.m. Saturday. She was released about an hour later.
Police say they were called Saturday afternoon about a man and a woman yelling outside a North Myrtle Beach home. Evans’ boyfriend told police she locked him out of the house.
Evans was arrested earlier this year in North Carolina on drug and assault charges. Her lawyer in that case said Sunday he wasn’t representing her on the South Carolina charges, and jail records listed no other attorney for her.
‘Hobbit’ sequel debuts at No. 1
Undaunted hobbits trumped princess power at the multiplex.
Per studio estimates Sunday, Warner Bros. “Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” was No. 1 at the weekend box office with $73.7 million, besting last weekend’s No. 1 film, Disney’s animated fable “Frozen.”
Melting down to the No. 2 position, “Frozen” earned $22.2 in its third weekend, bringing its impressive overall domestic ticket total to nearly $164.4 million. Internationally, the Disney hit gained $31.5 million.
Despite its first place position, “The Desolation of Smaug” fell short of topping its prequel’s debut. “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,” which opened this same weekend last year, gained $84.6 million. It earned $131.2 million in international sales.
Lionsgate’s holiday-themed “Tyler Perry’s a Madea Christmas” came in third place with $16.2 million. Another Lionsgate film, “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” earned $13.2 million for the fourth place slot. Disney’s super hero sequel, “Thor: The Dark World,” continues to thrive as it remained in the top five with $2.7 million, bringing its domestic total to $198.1 million.
