Rosie O’Donnell’s ex-wife commits suicide

Michelle Rounds, who was married to Rosie O’Donnell from 2012-2015, died Sept. 11 of an apparent suicide. She was 46. “I am saddened to hear about this terrible tragedy,” O’Donnell, 55, told in a statement. “Mental illness is a very serious issue affecting many families. My thoughts and prayers go out to Michelle’s family, her wife and their child.” Rounds and O’Donnell also shared joint custody of their daughter Dakota, 4. Rounds was hospitalized for an apparent drug overdose in 2015. Her divorce from O’Donnell was finalized in 2016.

Rob Kardashian, Blac Chyna settle custody battle

TMZ has learned that Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna have settled their custody flap, with Kardashian, 30, paying through the nose in order to get Chyna’s domestic violence allegations dropped. The website reported the two have agreed to joint custody of 10-month-old Dream. But all this will run Kardashian $20,000 a month in child support — twice what he initially offered, but under half what Chyna demanded. Chyna, 29, had charged that Kardashian beat her up. To make everything extra nice, he also will pay all Chyna’s legal bills, which is reportedly a lot bigger than a breadbox.
