J.Lo is ‘devastated,’ but ready to move on 

As usual when shocking celeb breakups occur, anonymous sources are coming out of the woodwork to tell tabloids they saw it coming a mile away. In this case, insiders told Us magazine that Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony were having trouble for months.

The “American Idol” judge “tried everything she could to make it work,” a source told Us magazine after J.Lo and her husband of seven years announced their split. They went to marriage counseling. She was patient and loving and did everything he wanted her to. She exhausted all the possibilities.”

We’re guessing this source is on Team Jen.

“She is devastated,” the source said. “Absolutely beside herself. This is someone she dedicated a long time to, and that she truly loved.”

“They had a very up-and-down marriage,” another insider said. “They would get into heated, horrible fights. Then they would also go through times where they were extremely loving and romantic. It was a roller coaster with them from the beginning.”

All this said, a third source avowed that Jenny from the block “is looking forward to the future. She is jumping back into work and being a mom with all her energy, and she is really excited. She feels like she has grown leaps and bounds and is a new person now, better than ever!”

We’re guessing this source also is on Team Jen.

Secret Couple?

Now here’s one we didn’t see coming: Divorced dad Ryan Phillippe allegedly had a fling with recently rehabbed teen Demi Lovato. Really?

The former Disney star does have a rep for dating older men — she’s said to have quietly had a relationship with “That ’70s Show” star Wilmer Valderrama before and after her treatment for emotional issues.

“It was really hot and heavy for a while,” a source told E! Online of her alleged Ryan dalliance.

But after word broke that the actor had fathered a baby with model ex Alexis Knapp, “it kind of threw her for a loop,” a source said. (A Ryan insider insisted no fling took place and he is “totally single.”)

Is there something about actresses named Demi and age-difference relationships? Hmm ...

Adoption News

After struggling publicly to conceive, Giuliana and Bill Rancic have started the process of adopting.

“We were in Italy recently. We were there for two weeks and now it’s about to break that we are adopting a baby from Naples. It is true that we were there and it is something we talked about,” Giuliana said, according to The Huffington Post. “It’s definitely something that I’ve thought about. I’m from Naples. I was born in a poor neighborhood and I always, in my heart, felt like it would be amazing to be able to adopt a child from Naples. I could give someone the opportunity I had.”

What happy news to hear that the couple, who have wanted to start a family for so long, are now planning to give a child in need a loving home. We wish them good luck with the adoption process!

Wedding Crashers

Justin Bieber and girlfriend Selena Gomez were strolling down the beach when they caught strains of his music playing at a wedding reception and decided to stop in. (Like, who hasn’t done that?) On a whim after hearing “One Less Lonely Girl,” the teen power couple spent about 10 minutes at a Malibu post-nuptials celebration, TMZ reported.
