Celebrity Spotlight: Divorce and Custody Battles

Sometimes we can get the impression that celebrities are very special, maybe not quite mortal. But when it comes to divorce, the stars often prove themselves to be decidedly normal.

Just like other couples, the rich and famous squabble over support and child custody. Unlike the rest of us, however, celebrities can often afford protracted legal battles. Let's take a look at some celebrity divorces and custody battles in the spotlight recently.

Third Time Was Not a Charm: Halle Berry Divorcing Olivier Martinez

Actress Halle Berry is divorcing her French husband, actor Olivier Martinez. The two met on a movie set in 2010 and married in 2013 while she was pregnant with their child. "It is with a heavy heart that we have come to the decision to divorce," the couple said in a joint statement to People.

According to the magazine, sources said that the relationship had run its course. The couple, however, appears to harbor no ill will and wishes each other well.

Cancel That: Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom Call Off Divorce

There is yet another twist in the story of Khloe Kardashian's divorce from Lamar Odom. It's not happening. The reality stars reportedly withdrew their dissolution of marriage documents from California courts this morning.

Last week many of us were surprised to discover that the couple was still married, as their split had been making headlines for more than a year. But after Odom collapsed at The Love Shack in Nevada and was rushed to the hospital last week, Khloe joined him and it became apparent that the two are technically still in a legal union. Which works out well, as they intend to remain married.

Match Made in Hell: The 10 Shortest Celebrity Marriages

Marriages made in heaven are rare. Most of them are made right here on earth, and often by couples less committed to the union than they claimed in their wedding vows. Death does not part many -- divorce does.

Nearly half of American marriages end in divorce, according to the American Psychological Association. Some of these unions barely start before the parting begins, lasting less than a week. Here are the ten shortest celebrity marriages in relatively recent history, listed in order from most brief to longest.

Khloe Kardashian Making Medical Decisions for Lamar Odom in Coma

Khloe Kardashian is making medical decisions for her husband, Lamar Odom, while he's in a coma. This is news because those of us who have been Keeping Up With the Kardashians -- and even those who were not -- all thought they were divorced.

Lamar Odom was rushed to a hospital in Nevada this week, having collapsed in a brothel after spending $75,000 in a weekend at The Love Ranch. Khloe rushed to his side, where he lies in a medically-induced coma. She is making decisions for her husband because it turns out that the two are technically not divorced.

Actor Brian Green Seeks Spousal Support From Megan Fox in Divorce

Megan Fox and Brian Green are set to split after a five-year marriage. Now Green, the ex-husband-to-be, is seeking spousal support.

Fox reportedly filed for divorce in August, citing "irreconcilable differences." There was no response from Green until this week. They reportedly continue to live under one roof while caring for their two kids and the split seems as amicable as these things can be. Green is also seeking joint custody.

It's been a cruel, cruel summer, at least for celebrity couples. Not even our favorite fictional characters were spared the celebrity divorce.

Here are a few of the cruelest breakups this summer and the mashed-up names we'll miss the most:

Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert's divorce is finalized!

Wait ... didn't they just announce the divorce a few days ago? Unlike the Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries divorce, which lasted longer than their 72-day marriage, Shelton and Lambert had a shotgun divorce, finalized within only a few weeks.

Country star Trace Adkins and his wife have come to a settlement agreement in their divorce case.

While celebrity divorces are a dime a dozen, this divorce is somewhat unique. Instead of a long drawn out court battle, the couple decided to work things out in private mediation.

After 20 years of marriage, Chris Rock and his wife Malaak Compton Rock are divorcing.

Before the couple married in 1996, they signed a prenuptial agreement. Now that they're divorcing, that prenuptial agreement may not be worth the paper it's printed on.
