Surprise! Heidi Klum and her beau Tom Kaulitz tied the knot several months ago, but they've managed to keep their marriage secret. TMZ said that the couple married on Feb. 22, a date significant to them, as it marks exactly one year from the day they first met. The couple got engaged around Christmas-time last year. This is Heidi's third marriage, as she was previously wed to Seal and Ric Pipino. In February, just before tying the knot, Heidi told Access Hollywood that she felt "already married" to the Tokio Hotel guitarist. "It just clicked from the very second and it was as if we were already married when we just met each other. It was very bizarre that way," she said.

Divorce is coming
Matt Lauer's wife, Annette Roque, has officially filed divorce paperwork in a New York court on July 9, making their legal split imminent. Matt isn't contesting the divorce, meaning that a judge needs to simply sign the documents to make them both legally single. It's expected that Annette will walk away with $20 million in assets, but exactly how the duo is splitting their properties isn't publicly known. The New York Post said Annette is getting their horse training facility, Bright Side Farm, which is in Water Mill, New York. There is no timetable as to when the judge will sign off on the divorce, but the official signature is essentially a formality.

She never struck him or their child with the weapon, but she did apparently hit Andrew in the neck with her shoe. On July 9, prosecutors officially charged Amber with three felony charges, including domestic battery, criminal recklessness with a deadly weapon and domestic battery in the presence of a child.

Letter of the law
Ready to own from music memorabilia? After years of legal limbo, Tupac Shakur's jailhouse breakup letter to Madonna can be auctioned off, according to the New York Supreme Court. Madge had long argued that the letter — which states he's breaking up with her because she's white — belonged to her. However, she legally transferred it over to her former art consultant Darlene Lutz in 2004. Over the years Madonna has filed appeals to prevent the letter from going on the auction block. However, on July 17, the three-page letter, penned in 1995 while Tupac was in prison, will be actioned off to the highest bidder. It's expected to go for about $300,000.

He told Charlamagne, "It was actually before me and Cherry got married and I knew that we'd be married by the point that the song came out.

Ed and Cherry reportedly got married in December last year.
