LOS ANGELES | January 28, 2012
E Online entertainment news columnist Leslie Gornstein, Ask the Answer Bitch, in her column Thursday covered a report on the celebrity splits and Seal, K.D. Lang and her domestic partner, and the lady he dated for 5 years, and and Russell Brand. In covering the report, as all of the split-ups happened in or around January, Gornstein raises the question "Is January to blame?"
Since Leslie the Answer Bitch Gornstein knows everything, she answered her own question, with assistance from her colleagues, and the following is the response to whether January is to blame for all of the reported celebrity splits: quite simply put, "yes."
Divorce attorneys confirm that January is a busy month for breakups and divorce filings in general, which includes celebrities.
"People go through a very exhausting year, and people looking at the new year as a new life," says family law specialist Marilyn B. Chinitz a Partner of Blank Rome LLP at their New York office. "So as soon as January rolls around, people think, ‘This is my new beginning.'"
Gornstein also responded by stating that the holidays are also stressful. Traveling and complaining family members can lead to fights that end with a filing for divorce from which celebrities are not immune.
Lastly, couples who decide to breakup often wait until the holidays are over, states the Answer Bitch.
