Michael Moore; Liam Gallagher; Justin Bieber

Michael Moore has filed for divorce from his wife of two decades, and sought a court order preventing either of them from touching his estimated $50 million fortune. The left-wing filmmaker said in divorce papers that he and Kathleen Glynn no longer live together, and he believed there was “no reasonable likelihood that the marriage can be preserved.” Moore also applied for a temporary order preventing the sale or transfer of the couple’s assets, real estate, furniture, or fine art. Glynn produced several of Moore’s films, and has been married to the documentarian for 21 years.

Former Oasis singer Liam Gallagher is being sued for millions of dollars in a New York court over a secret love child, according to the New York Post. Freelance journalist Liza Ghorbani allegedly began a relationship with the married Gallagher after interviewing him for The New York Times in 2010, and now claims to have a 7-month-old daughter with the rock star. The Post reported that Gallagher, 40, refused to negotiate an out-of-court deal for child support with Ghorbani, prompting her to file suit in Manhattan courts for $3 million.

Miley Cyrus has advised Justin Bieber to take a break from the limelight after his increasingly erratic behavior in recent months. The singer, 20, contacted her fellow former child star after he was caught on video urinating into a mop bucket in a New York bathroom. “I told Justin to take a bit of time out,” she said. “When you’re not around, all they want is your music…but when your music is out they just want to talk s--- about you.” Celebrities can’t make public mistakes like ordinary people, she said. “If it was your friend pissing into a mop box then you would be laughing,” she said, “but because it’s Justin Bieber, then it’s really bad.” Bieber, 19, may be pining for parental oversight—his latest tattoo is a close-up of his mother’s eye on his forearm.
