Don't Believe The Rumors! Adele Does NOT Have Throat Cancer!

Filed under: AdeleCancerSurgery

Adele does not have throat cancer

Thank the Lord!!!

As we reported on Friday, Adele is undergoing throat surgery and has been forced to cancel anymore appearances for the rest of the year as a result.

Contrary to nasty rumors, however, the surgery is NOT because of throat cancer! To set the record straight, her reps have released a statement, saying:

“We would like to reiterate that Adele is to undergo surgery for a hemorrhaged vocal chord. All reports regarding any other condition are 100% false.”

She's going to be okay, but unfortunately, people of Earth will still be without anymore live performances from the musical goddess until 2012!

Ugh! Feel better, gurl! We can't wait to see you sing again!

Rest In Peace, Nick Ashford

Filed under: Music MinuteR.I.P.

Motown genius Nick Ashford has died of throat cancer. He was 69.

Ashford wrote and produced a myriad Motown classics with his wife, Valerie Simpson.

Some of his songs include Aint No Mountain High Enough, You're All I need to Get By, Let's Go Get Stoned, and I'm Every Woman.

In 1984, he and Valerie made their Solid (As A Rock) video (watch above).

His last work was a collaboration album with Maya Angelo — 1996's Been Found.

Ashford and his wife were inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2002.

It's a sad die when we lose someone, especially when that someone is a true artist.

Rest in peace, Nick Ashford.

Catherine Zeta Jones Is Trying To Quit Smoking

Thank goodness!

You would think that Catherine Zeta Jones would quit smoking immediately after husband Michael Douglas was diagnosed with throat cancer.

But it goes to show you just how addictive nicotine really is.

Despite dealing with her husband's illness, Catherine was still seen smoking. Ever since Michael's won his battle with the disease though, Catherine is desperately trying to quit smoking by using electronic cigarettes.

She's been seen using the e-cigs while out dining in France.

She's learned that even though Michael has beat cancer, the deadly disease can always come back so for both of them to be smoke-free is one of the best things they can do for their bodies.

We're rooting for you, Catherine. Keep it up for the sake of your husband, your children, and for yourself.

Michael Douglas' Ex Speaks Up, Explains Why She Went After So Much $$$ In Divorce

michael douglas ex speaks up

Michael Douglas' ex-wife Diandra Douglas hit him hard in their divorce, where she reportedly got $45 million from the actor.

Now, Diandra has spoken up about the divorce, explaining that she went after so much money because she got schemed by Bernie Madoff and Kenneth Starr.

Here's what she had to say about it:

"Because of the type of human being I aspire to be, if Starr & Company hadn't happened and Madoff hadn't, and if a lot of other things hadn't happened, to tell you the honest truth, I really believe I would have walked away."

And here's Diandra on Michael's recent battle with throat cancer:

"Michael didn't know he was ill, I didn't know he was ill, and the gods didn't know he was ill. I am not into going after sick people for things that don't belong to me."

And more from Diandra:

"I am not a greedy person by nature."

Hmm…would she have really just walked away if she hadn't been schemed by Madoff and Starr? Based on everything we've heard about this over time, we're not 100% convinced.

Do U think Michael Douglas' ex went for so much money ONLY because she got schemed? Would she have left him alone otherwise?

This is a good sign!

Michael Douglas was spotted back in the gym on Tuesday now that he's completed chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatment for throat cancer.

A spywitness says "Most staff and club members kept a respectful distance. But a few wished him well, which he said he appreciated."

We're glad to hear he's working on his health, but don't over do it Mikey!
