Jay Z trying to avert split

Jay Z is doing everything he can to prevent his six-year marriage to Beyoncé from crumbling.

“Jay wants everything to work out and is trying to convince Beyoncé how much he does not want a divorce,” a source told E! News. “It’s flowers, constant texts and telling her he loves her. He is pulling out all the stops.”

Rumor has it the 44-year-old rapper has been unfaithful to his lady, 32.

Recent reports have claimed that the couple is only still together because of their On the Run tour, which wrapped its American leg on Wednesday before two final shows in Paris next month, and all the money they’ve been earning from it.

“There has been talk of divorce, and it’s been really tense at times on the tour,” the source said.

As of late, Beyoncé has been posting photos to Instagram that look like an attempt at quashing split rumors: Just this week, she shared a pic of herself wearing a jersey with the moniker Carter, her hubby’s last name.

Thieves target Kardashian

Thousands of dollars in cash has been stolen from Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick – yet again.

A thief nabbed a briefcase filled with $4,000 in cash earlier this month from the couple’s rented house in the Hamptons, TMZ.com reported on Monday. It’s believed to be an inside job because this is the third time the Kardashian family has been hit this year, sources close to the family told TMZ.

In February, someone stole $50,000 in cash from the pair’s home in Calabasas, Calif., while $250,000 in jewelry was taken from sister Khloe Kardashian’s California mansion this year, too.

New battle over Kasem’s body

A publicist for Casey Kasem’s daughter says the late radio personality’s children are working with law enforcement following a report that Kasem’s wife is making arrangements to have Kasem’s body flown to Europe.

Danny Deraney, a publicist for Kasem’s daughter Kerri, said Kasem’s children are discussing their next steps with authorities.

Kasem, the radio host of “American Top 40,” died June 15 at a hospital in Gig Harbor, Wash. His death followed a lengthy battle over his care between his wife Jean Kasem and his three adult children from his first marriage.

TMZ reports that Jean Kasem is trying to have Kasem’s body flown to Europe. Teruyuki Olsen, a lawyer for Kasem’s wife, said he had no comment.

Marvel’s live show to debut
