Looks like two more people just moved in to Splitsville for good.
Josh Brolin and Diane Lane are now pronounced NOT husband and wife, as the two have officially divorced.
According to court documents, the two have reached a private financial agreement together, and it looks like Diane has also restored her last name, legally going from Diane Lane Brolin to just Diane Lane.
Currently, Josh is reportedly enrolled in rehab for substance abuse involving alcohol in northern California, and we hope he's dealing with this potentially emotional day well.

Talk about really loving
publicity your country.
The founder of Italian luxury label Tod's, Diego Della Valle pictured above left, has announced they will finance a restoration of Rome's iconic Colosseum.
And it won’t be cheap. Costs are estimated to be around $35 million!
"A monument that represents Italy in the world must be restored, and a company that represents ‘Made in Italy’ stepped forward to say, 'If you need us, we are here.’
We believe that because the Tod’s Group is a strong global representative of ‘Made in Italy’, it is both an honour and our duty to contribute to the support of our country’s image and credibility, as well as it’s cultural heritage.”
Valle also hopes other Italian companies will step forward to help out.
The Colosseum is said to be blackened due to pollution and rocked by the vibrations from a nearby subway line.
The work is said to begin at the end of this year but the Colosseum will remain open to tourists during restoration.

This is completely random, but amazing all at the same time!
Gucci has teamed up with the Recording Academy, the peeps who give out Grammys, to restore and preserve musical recordings.
The Recording Academy is currently compiling a list of original tracks that need help, which will then be given to the fashion house's creative director Frida Giannini. From that list, Frida will select tracks that mesh with the Gucci brand to be restored.
Also, Gucci will be designing special edition Grammy watches and jewelry, with proceeds supporting the project. Frida hasn't come up with any designs just yet, but she did reveal a gramophone will most likely be incorporated into the accessories.
We can't wait to see what she comes up with!

Five of the dresses worn by Vivien Leigh in Gone With the Wind, including the iconic green dress made from curtains, are in desperate need of repair.
The Harry Ransom Center in Austin, Texas is trying to raise the $30,000 needed to restore the costumes, which can't be displayed because they're in such bad shape, before the 75th anniversary exhibit takes place in 2014.
Restoring the dresses will also allow the center to share Scarlett O'Hara's wardrobe with other museums around the world.
