After two false starts and one delayed response, Dennis Quaid's divorce from his wife, Kimberly, seems to be on its way to completion. According to The Blast, the actor recently filed a response to the divorce papers Kimberly filed in June 2016. He reportedly blamed the split on irreconcilable differences and declared they had separated on June 27, 2016, one day prior to her filing.

Drake shells out thousands to pay for shoppers' grocery purchases in Miami
Drake pulled a good samaritan hat trick this week, sharing some of the $94 million he reportedly made last year with a slew of surprised but grateful Miami residents. After making a donation to an area high school and handing over $50,000 in scholarship money to a student at the University of Miami, he reportedly headed over to Sabor Tropical Supermarket, asked employees to shut the doors temporarily and proceeded to pay for the contents of every shopper's cart in the store. According to The Blast, Drizzy took care of about 60 shoppers including one person whose purchases added up to $754. As he left the store with a film crew in tow, shoppers reportedly chanted his name as a thank-you.

Kylie Jenner doesn't necessarily want to marry Travis Scott
For Kylie Jenner, motherhood is much higher up on the list than marriage. That's according to an Us Weekly source, who says the 20-year-old new mom is "doing great and just so happy" since welcoming her daughter Stormi with Travis Scott on Feb. 1. "Engagement isn't super important to Kylie," the insider says. "Travis could ask her, but it's not something that is a major priority. She is just loving starting a family with this person."
Busy Philipps says 'Quentin is canceled' after Tarantino's defense of Roman Polanski
Uma Thurman may have forgiven Quentin Tarantino for spitting at her, choking her and pressuring her to film a car crash scene in "Kill Bill" that left her hospitalized, but Busy Philipps isn't having any of it. Particularly given the director's newly resurfaced quotes about Roman Polanski's rape case from the late '70s. In a Howard Stern interview from 2003, which resurfaced following the recent publication of Uma's story about the violence she endured on the set of the film, Quentin spends a good chunk of time defending the older director, whom Samantha Geimer says drugged and raped her when she was 13. "He didn't rape a 13-year-old. It was statutory rape, that's not quite the same thing. He had sex with a minor. That's not rape. To me, when you use the word rape, you're talking about violent, throwing them down … it's like one of the most violent crimes in the world," Quentin said. You can't throw the word 'rape' around, it's like throwing the word 'racist' around. It doesn't apply to everything people use it for. He was guilty of having sex with a minor." He went on to say the child "was down to party," claiming "she wanted to have it." Busy's response? "Quentin is canceled." In a series of F-bomb-laden tweets, the actress said she was "embarrassed that I ever auditioned for him" and noted that she "showed up in SHORT SHORTS AND FLIP FLOPS as requested because I WANTED THE JOB. This business sucks and enables predators. … Btw this was 10 year ago. I'm SURE IM TOO F—— OLD NOW." Finally, she announced: "Ok. Sorry. I have to go put my two girls to bed and pray that they they get to grow up in a world where drugging and raping a child at 13 isn't laughed off in a radio interview 'because she wanted it." Roman pleaded guilty to unlawful sex with a minor, according to the Daily Mail, then moved to France prior to his sentencing. His victim apparently heard Quentin's defense, too. "He was wrong. I bet he knows it. I hope he doesn't make an a– of himself and keep talking that way," she told the Daily News of the "Kill Bill" director's interview. "It's not a big deal to me what people think," she added. "It doesn't make a difference in my life. I know what happened. I do not need other people weighing in on what it's like getting raped at 13."
Why Miranda Kerr and Evan Spiegel won't post about their baby's arrival on Snapchat
Just because Miranda Kerr's having a baby with the founder of Snapchat doesn't mean the event will be broadcast on the social media platform. During a chat with Jimmy Kimmel this week, the "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" host asked if fans could expect to see Snaps of Miranda's labor or the delivery of her first child with Evan Spiegel. "No. My husband's a very private man," she revealed (via E! News). "That's ironic, isn't it?" Jimmy quipped. Ironic or not, Miranda explained that she doesn't have plans to post Snaps of the son she shares with Orlando Bloom or the new baby. "What I love about Snap is you can send your friends and family these little intimate moments that you're [comfortable] sharing. So, my family in Australia—we Snap all day long. But publicly, it's a different thing. You want to keep some things private," she said. One thing she didn't mind revealing, however, was how excited her 7-year-old son Flynn is about the stork news. "Evan and I had been together for a while, and he was like, 'When are we going to have a baby brother or sister?' We were like, 'We've got to get married first,'" she shared. "The day after the wedding, he comes running in, and he's like, 'Mommy, is it in there?' I was like, 'Honey, give it a minute!'"
Duchess Kate cracks a joke after a stilleto-related near fall
Ah, the price a gal pays for fashion. During a photo op as she arrived at the Action addiction treatment center in Wickford, England, on Wednesday, Feb. 7, Kate paused and looked down as she greeted Vice Lord Lieutenant of Essex Jonathan Douglas-Hughes. The heel of her stiletto had gotten stuck in a grate and wouldn't budge. The lieutenant reminded Kate he'd tripped and fallen himself when he first met Kate and Prince William in 2016. "I reminded her [about fall]. My wife told her that she would ensure I didn't do it again. Then she caught her heel," he told People. "She said, 'Oh … do the same as you!'" Kate was on hand to help open the center, where she serves as a patron.

Gwyneth Paltrow's mom is a serious fan of the men in her daughter's life. Speaking to ET at at AARP The Magazine's 17th Annual Movies for Grownups Awards this week in Los Angeles, she gushed about both Gwyneth's ex, Chris Martin, and her fiance, Brad Falchuk. Asked if she approves of the couple's engagement, Blythe enthused, "Oh, more than approve! Yes, I love, I love Brad. I love Chris! Love them all." She didn't require any sort of permission before Brad asked for her daughter's hand in marriage either. "I really adore him," she said. Blythe, 75, recently returned to the set of "Will and Grace" for the show's reboot and added that she's loved having the opportunity to reconnect with the cast. "It was a thrill to get back with that gang, and I said, 'Nobody can possibly get sick there,'" she marveled. "They laugh so hard, if that is true that laughter, you know, prevents illness. They are the test of all time."
Jill Scott gets a gag order on her ex
A judge has issued a gag order on Jill Scott's ex-husband, Mike Dobson, with the intent of preventing from talking about her or their marriage publicly. TMZ reports the singer filed documents claiming Mike has been harassing and disparaging her to friends and family in an effort to get some of her money. Although the two reportedly signed a prenup that prohibited either of them from airing their dirty laundry in the press, Jill says Mike called her an "evil woman" in an interview. She said in the documents that she'd tried to discuss the way he was talking about her at which point she says he told her he was trying to get revenge on her for filing for divorce.
