Anne Hathaway engaged, Miley Cyrus caught on tape talking about marijuana, and more

Posted on

Engaged
Actress Anne Hathaway, 29, and actor Adam Shulman announced Nov. 28 that they are engaged. The couple began dating in 2008.

Expecting
Maggie Gyllenhaal, 34, and husband Peter Sarsgaard, 40, announced on Nov. 28 that they are expecting their second child together. The couple have a 5-year-old daughter, Ramona.

Births
Piers Morgan, 46, and wife Celia Warden welcomed a daughter, Elise. This is the couple’s first child, though Morgan has three sons from a previous marriage…. Singer Lily Allen, 26, gave birth to a baby girl on Nov. 25. This is the first child for Allen and husband Sam Cooper.

Controversy
When presented with a cake that featured her likeness as Bob Marley at her 19th birthday party, Miley Cyrus was caught on video saying, ”You know you’re a stoner when your friends make you a Bob Miley cake.” A rep for the star and her friend Kelly Osbourne say Cyrus was merely joking.

Courts
The same week that country singer Jennifer Nettles, 37, wed boyfriend Justin Miller, her duo, Sugarland, were sued for negligence by 42 victims of the Aug. 13 Indiana State Fair stage collapse. The plaintiffs claim that the band’s contract gave Sugarland the final say on whether to cancel their show due to inclement weather, and because they did not, they are responsible for the injuries and deaths caused by the stage collapsing during their concert.

Ailing
Singer George Michael, 48, postponed the remaining dates of his European Symphonica tour due to an ongoing battle with pneumonia. Michael’s website states, ”His condition has stabilized.”

Birthdays
