And now, more news about this divorce is coming to light from both camps.

The View just wouldn't be the same without Whoopi Goldberg, but it looks like we might have to prepare ourselves for the actress' departure!
While visiting The Wendy Williams Show, the talk show panelist discussed her time with the roundtable show, and how there might not be much left.
During Friday's episode, Wendy Williams brought up Miz Goldberg's short contract, saying:
"I know you've only signed on, according to what we've talked about, for one more year. So, in September, when everyone comes back for the new season, you might not be there."
The comedienne confirmed that there's a strong possibility she won't return, replying:
"No, probably not."
But, it doesn't appear as though the 60-year-old is leaving because of any bad blood over her jokes.
Instead, it seems like it's a combination of the New York native's contract expiring, and her desire to work on other projects, because she explained:
All's fair in love and war!
But now, the comedienne is taking to social media to defend herself from the online backlash. The funny lady went on Twitter on Wednesday to explain that the split hadn't been officially confirmed by the time they taped the show, writing:
The 60-year-old put on a Valley Girl accent to mock the divorce drama, saying:
Looks like it's never-ending drama in the land of The View!
The popular daytime TV show can't catch a break in avoiding controversy — which, let's be honest, is really the reason why we watch — and now it looks like another host feud is going to bubble over!
If you're a regular watcher of The View, you might have realized recently that Paula Faris' appearances on the show have been cut from five days a week to one… and apparently there's a reason.
According to new reports out this week, executives have made the decision to cut 80% of Faris' air time after, according to a source speaking to Daily Mail, focus group feedback research on the highly religious host was "some of the lowest the network has seen since Elisabeth Hasselbeck."
Uh… WOW! Only that's not quite where the controversy ends…
It all really comes to a head in Faris' reaction to this little fact — because the nice, sweet, Christian host went BALLISTIC when producers told her about the change a few weeks ago, allegedly yelling
Someone's not gonna be happy about these views…
If you've somehow made it this far into your day without hearing about the massive feud currently erupting between Taylor Swift, Kanye West, and Kim Kardashian, we hope you enjoy living under that rock.
But for the rest of you who are aware how huge this Famous feud has already become, another handful of celebs just officially picked sides!
The View has had more cast changes and behind-the-scenes backstabbing than most primetime dramas, which means the ABC hosts are the perfect people to weigh in on Hollywood's latest scandal.
While vets Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar more-or-less chose to sit this one out, Paula Faris, Sunny Hostin, and Jedediah Bila made it pretty clear they were heavily supporting one side over the other…
Let the controversy
Rumors of a mass exodus from The View may have been premature — at least as far as Whoopi Goldberg is concerned!
The TV personality announced on Monday that it's officially official — she will be back on The View for the 2016-2017 season that's set to return this fall!!
In a tweet perfectly written to capture her role on the show, she wrote:
In times of tragedy people often come together to try and help in anyway they can.
Well after the worst mass shooting in U.S. history took place just over a week ago, some of the biggest names in Broadway came together to record a cover of the 1965 hit What the World Needs Now Is Love to raise funds for the LGBT Center of Central Florida. As we previously reported, the A-list group — including Sara Bareilles, Sarah Jessica Parker, Whoopi Goldberg, and many more — recorded the song on June 15 at the Avatar Studios in NYC.
We're happy to report that the music video for this inspirational song dropped on Monday! Bless.
Other soloists include Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Matthew Broderick, Sutton Foster, and countless others. Not to mention, many of the talented artists involved with this song will perform the number on Maya & Marty at 10/9c on NBC. LOVES it!
Be sure to ch-ch-check out the powerful performance for yourself (above)! Don't forget you can purchase the song at BroadwayRecords.com for $1.99 and the track will also be available on iTunes.
