Since its beginning Hollywood has been attracting the press. The public has a constant need to know what is going on with their favorite celebrity.

From Grace Kelly and Prince Rainier III of Monaco to Sean Penn and Madonna, Hollywood has been gracing the world with its romances since the early twentieth century. Not only are the movie buffs fascinated by these romances, but so are sports fans and even young children. Two of the most popular romances in Hollywood were Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio and Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy.

Today’s romances are not any different than the romances of the past. The public is still interested in the love life of their favorite star.

Today teenagers are most infatuated with the lives of their favorite pop stars such as Britany Spears and Justin Timberlake. The two have recently purchased a $3 million home in Los Angles. Timberlake also bought Spears a new convertible Audi that she reportedly said that she wanted.

There is also a trend of singers marrying their dancers. Both J-Lo and LeAnn Rimes are participating in this trend. Lopez married her dancer last year. Rimes plans to wed in February in her home state of Texas.

Eric Clapton, 56, secretly married American girlfriend, Melia McEnery, 25, after the christening of their daughter, Julie Rose. The two had met two years earlier in Los Angles. This is Clapton’s second marriage.

At the present time the relationship with the most publicity is the one between Tom Cruise and Penelope Cruz. Latest news is that the two are very happy together and are considering marriage. Rumor has it that Cruise wants to marry Cruz at the same property of his that he married his former wife Nicole Kidman.

Not all Hollywood couples are experiencing the long-lasting bliss that they had hoped for.

Earlier this month Juanita Jordan, 42, wife of Michael Jordan, 38, filed for divorce after 12 years of marriage. Mrs. Jordan cited “irreconcilable differences” with Jordan. Mrs. Jordan is seeking permanent custody of the couple’s three children, the 25,000-square-foot home and half of the couple’s property. The couple was married in Las Vegas in 1989.

Comedian, Tom Green, and actress, Drew Barrymore, were only married five months before their break-up. Rumor has it that “violent arguments” are what led the marriage to break up. Green filed for divorce on Dec. 17 in Los Angles, citing “irreconcilable differences.”

British actress, Elizabeth Hurley, has found herself in a compromising position. She is now pregnant. She claims that the father of the baby is the film producer, Steve Bing. He has allegedly said that the couple was not in an exclusive relationship. Hurley on the other hand said that they were, and that she is positive it is Bing’s child.
