A Pitstop On The Information Super Highway

Penns to divorce, Brandy escapes criminal charges

December 28th, 2007 Posted in Celebrity Gossip

Another Hollywood couple bites the dust.? People.com reports that Academy Award winning Sean Penn and his wife actress Robin Wright Penn are divorcing after 11 years of marriage.? Papers were filed by both parties on separate occasions.? On December 7th, Sean Penn filed a petition for dissolution of the marriage in Marin County Superior Court but for reasons unknown, his petition was dismissed.? Robin Wright Penn filed her own petition just three days later.? The often used ?irreconcilable differences? was listed as the reason for the divorce.? The couple, who married in April 1996, has two children, Dylan Frances, 16 and Hopper Jack, 14.? They are requesting joint physical and legal custody.

R&B singer and Moesha star, Brandy, will not face criminal charges as a result of a fatal car crash last year.? MSNBC.com reports that the Los Angeles City Attorney?s office has declined to press charges of vehicular manslaughter due to ?insufficient evidence?.? This is in direct conflict with the recommendation of the California Highway Patrol.? The crash, which occurred on an LA freeway on December 30, 2006, resulted in the death of 38-year old woman.? There was no evidence that Brandy was under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or using a cell phone. ?She still faces several wrongful death lawsuits filed by the dead woman?s relatives.
