Simpson Suffering From Ulcers, Magazine Reports
December 20, 2005

Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey's breakup has been front page news for weeks. Now comes news about Jessica's secret despair and stress-related health crisis over the bust-up.

"The stress of the breakup has really gotten to Jessica," said Us Weekly's Ken Baker. "So much so that we're told she has developed ulcers and is really in a lot of pain."

Baker also reported that Simpson is moving into a $5.5 million Beverly Hills mansion where Ellen DeGeneres once lived. She will spend her first Christmas without Nick in Hawaii with her family.

New developments have emerged in Hollywood's other big divorce battle between Eddie Murphy and his soon-be-be ex-wife, Nicole.  

Eddie wants to make sure that once a settlement is reached, Nicole can never talk about it. This was part of the couple's pre-nup, and now Eddie is asking the court to get Nicole to sign a new confidentiality stipulation, which the papers say Nicole has yet to do.

Meanwhile, Boy George and Kid Rock were among the guests at Elton John's pre-wedding stag party. John and his husband-to-be, David Furnish, scuttled past the press at the London bash Monday night. Even Former President Bill Clinton sent a videotaped good luck message to the happy couple.

Elton and David will tie the knot on Wednesday, followed by a nearly $2 million reception.

Word has it that pop sex symbol Gwen Stefani is on stork watch. She sure looked a little bit pregnant at the Billboard Music Awards on December 6th.

Now, Us Weekly is reporting that 36-year-old Gwen and her rocker husband Gavin Rossdale are expecting their first child.

Rossdale recently told us they were dreaming of starting a family. "They always say there's never a right time," he said. "So whenever it's decided from the universe."
