This week’s files are jammed packed with all the necessary information you need to know about what has been happening in the world of celebrity this week. And there has been a lot. A. LOT.
So grab yourself some tea, sit down and scroll through all of the flufftastic things that have been happening. PLUS we have included a bonus roundup of The Voice. Thank us later.
1. Hugh Jackman (44) and wife Deborra-Lee Furness (57) recently celebrated their 17th wedding anniversary.
Who said marriages don’t last in Hollywood?
Jackman tweeted a photo of himself and Furness on Thursday, when they got shakin’ and stirrin’ in a cocktail class to celebrate their anniversary. Jackman wrote:
“Deb & I in the kitchen having a cocktail at 11 Madison Park! What a way to celebrate 17 incredible years of marriage!”
Jackman, who is 13 years younger than Furness, has called his wife “the greatest woman I have ever met”. The eternally loved-up couple have two children: Oscar Maximillian, age 12, and Ava Eliot, age 7.
2. Miranda Kerr reportedly dropped from Victoria’s Secret.
There’s some confusing rumours circulating about Aussie model Miranda Kerr this morning, so we’re going to take it from the top.
US Weekly is reporting that Kerr, 30, is being let go as a Victoria’s Secret Angel after her $1 million, three-year contract “was not renewed.” An insider says the reasons are because she “has a difficult reputation” and “she’s not a big seller”.
Meanwhile Victoria’s Secret President Ed Razek released a statement that neither confirmed or denied the rumour.
“Miranda Kerr is one of the best models in the history of the business – and easily one of the most popular,” he said in a statement.
“She is also a consummate professional. Any rumours to the contrary are simply untrue.
“While her international commitments have kept her away from us more than we’d like over the past few years, she will always be an Angel to me.
“In fact, I’ve already invited her to walk the runway in this year’s fashion show and, happily, she’s agreed.”
If the rumour is true it would be the second contract Kerr has lost this year, with David Jones not resigning the model after she reportedly demanded a “massive” contract and had too many international commitments.

3.Radio host Fifi Box, who gave birth to a baby girl last week has revealed the name of her first child.
The name is rather adorable AND makes excellent use of alliteration. High five Fifi.
Fifi’s little girl will be Beatrix Belle Box. Trixie for short.
Here is how Fifi shared the news with her co-host Jules and stand-in host Sophie Monk:
Sophie Monk: Fifi, Fifi – does she have a name?
Fifi: Do you know what Soph? I’m glad you asked me that because had Byron or Jules I was going to ignore them because they did give me a lot of flack on Friday when she was born because I wasn’t prepared, and I didn’t have a name…
Jules: You’ve had nine months! I think Russell Brand was brainstorming with you back in November!
Fifi: I have, after much deliberation…she is now named!
Her official name is Beatrix Belle Box, but I’ll call her Trixie, Trixie Belle.
Jules: That is so beautiful…She’s going to have a larger than life existence – so Beatrix which is beautiful and old school but then you’re bringing some fun to it, I think that’s perfect.

7. Russell Crowe once told an unknown teenager to fuck off, guess who she turned out to be…
Chalk this one up as yet another reason to love Rebel Wilson.
The 27-year-old Aussie comedian was the recipient of the Nicole Kidman Scholarship at the Australian Theatre for Young People in 2003, which allowed her to her fly to New York to study comedy.
Wilson appeared on The Tonight Show and told host Jay Leno that that when she saw Nicole Kidman in Sydney having dinner with Russell Crowe, she approached the table to give her thanks.
“I thought now is my chance to say thank you and I went up to them but before I could say anything Russell Crowe looked at me and says ‘Fuck off’,” she said. “So I just like put my head down and walked away. But thanks Nicole.”

What you missed from The Voice this week:
The TV show that had the whole country in a buzz last year has returned to our screens. Definitely bigger and better – plus we have all been able to fall in love with Ricky Martin again, oh, and Seal. Check out the two top stories from this week:
11. Watch: Harrison Craig’s incredible blind audition on The Voice
Did you watch The Voice last night? If not, you’ve probably heard about 18-year-old Harrison Craig and his incredible audition. Overcoming his stutter to sing an amazing rendition of Josh Groban’s Broken Vow he had the judges and the nation captivated.
Take a look (and have some tissues on standby):
The teenager from Melbourne chose Seal to be his mentor for the duration of the show.
12. Delta Goodrem’s accidentally racist moment.
Music industry veteran, Steve Clisby earned a place on Team Seal with his rendition of ‘Can’t Get Enough Of Your Love’ by Barry White last night but it was not without controversy.
Delta was the first judge to speak to the contestant calling him “one cool cat,” she then said, “you have such an amazing voice”.
To which Clisby replied, “but you didn’t turn around,” a clearly flustered Goodrem then attempted to recover by saying, “I genuinely was… kinda feeling…. like Seal’s brother”.
Seal and Clisby were both visibly dumbfounded by her comments and Seal retorted with “Oh. We’re both black, so he’s coming on my team.”
Goodrem then tried to explain, “I meant as in the soul thing, I didn’t mean anything else.” It all ended well with Seal hugging Goodrem and Clisby laughing off the foot-in-mouth moment. You can watch the clip here.
Fans also took to Twitter to slam the show’s ending, in which the red chairs failed to turn around even though Ricky Martin and Joel Madden were madly pressing the buzzers.
