This month, it was announced that a few well-known and loved couples would no longer be “consciously coupling.” The most surprising split came very early on in the month when Jenna Dewan Tatum and Channing Tatum announced their split after nine years of marriage. The pair share one child, a daughter named Everly who turns 5 next month. Another famous couple that split in April, Hank Baskett and Kendra Wilkinson-Baskett. The two have had a tumultuous relationship, as seen on their former E! Network show, Kendra On Top.

In the saddest news from Hollywood this month, we lost a few talented individuals in April. The most surprising came when it was revealed EDM DJ, Avicii, was found dead in Muscat, Oman, due to an apparent suicide. The Swedish music artist had previously had health issues, and even stepped away from the spotlight in 2016 to focus on getting well. He was only 28. Another life lost this month was actor Verne Troyer of the Austin Powers franchise died this month after emergency responders reported to his Los Angeles home. He was 49 years old. No cause of death has been given at this time. Both Verne and Avicii will be missed.

While April might be gone, May is sure to bring another round of hot topics and headline-making news from Tinsel Town. Be sure to check back at the end of each month for another wrap-up! Follow us on Twitter and “like” us on Facebook for more stories just like this!
