[Blind Gossip] This celebrity showed up without their Significant Other at the Golden Globes last night. When people inquired as to their absence, the celeb said that the SO was sick at home… and then quickly changed the subject.
Maybe the SO was ill… and maybe not. The buzz at an after-party was that the two have actually separated but just aren’t ready to make an announcement yet.

Well, it looks like they should be making an announcement any minute now! Josh Brolin and Diane Lane have officially separated and are heading towards a divorce.
This couple was a mess from the beginning. And by mess, we mean Brolin. We were actually a little relieved to hear at the Golden Globes after-party that their marriage was over. Diane Lane is a class act, and she deserves much better.
Brolin recently showed up solo both for the the promotion of “Gangster Squad” and The 2013 Golden Globes. “My wife is home sick,” he claimed both times. There was actually a grain of truth to that statement. Lane was sick of him getting drunk and getting arrested, most recently on New Year’s Eve.
The couple does not have any children together, and both of them are working consistently, so the divorce shouldn’t be too messy.
Kudos to CParkEast, who was first with the correct answer! And congratulations to everyone who got this one right. Aren’t you feeling smart that you knew about this a month before everyone else?
Stay gold, Ponyboy! (That’s a famous line from “The Outsiders”, one of Diane Lane’s earliest films)
OK, now the story is breaking in the mainstream press. From People Magazine:
Diane Lane and Josh Brolin Split
After eight years of marriage, Josh Brolin and Diane Lane are splitting, their reps confirm to PEOPLE.
The pair, who married in a 2004 ceremony at Brolin’s central California ranch, were first introduced by the actor’s stepmother, Barbra Streisand, at a party in 2002.
But just four months after saying “I do,” Brolin, 45, was arrested for spousal battery, following “a misunderstanding at [the couple's] home,” his rep said at the time. Lane, 48, did not press charges.
Brolin was more recently arrested for public intoxication just before midnight on New Year’s Eve 2013.
Spotted without his wedding ring the following day, Brolin, donning sunglasses, seemed unfazed by the trouble as he ate with a male friend at Sauce on Hampton in Venice, Calif.
A few days later, Lane headed to the Palm Springs Film Festival – without her husband – where she presented an award to her former Unfaithful costar, Richard Gere.
Brolin was previously married to Alice Adair, with whom he had two children. Lane previously wed Christopher Lambert, and they had one child together.
