What had ET readers buzzing this week?
English rock band Radiohead issued a statement Thursday on last weekend's roof collapse during a concert in Toronto that killed a crew member and injured three others.
"As you will probably have heard the roof over the stage collapsed at our show in Toronto, killing crew member Scott Johnson and injuring three other crew members," the statement reads. "The collapse also destroyed the light show - this show was unique and will take many weeks to replace. The collapse also caused serious damage to our backline, some elements of which are decades old and therefore hard to replace."
The statement goes on to state that due to last Saturday's tragic accident and resulting damage, the group will have to reschedule some upcoming shows in Europe. "Whilst we all are dealing with the grief and shock ensuing from this terrible accident, there are also many practical considerations to deal with and consequently we have to try and reschedule the following shows."
The band said it will be announcing the new concert dates next Wednesday, June 27, and will also supply information on how to obtain refunds if fans cannot attend rescheduled shows. Radiohead plans to resume performing on July 10 in Nimes, France.
On Tuesday, longtime couple Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis announced they were calling it quits.
"Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis have amicably separated," said Depp's publicist in an exclusive statement to ET. "Please respect their privacy and, more importantly, the privacy of their children."
Johnny, 49, and Vanessa, 39, dated for 14 years and have two children together—daughter Lily-Rose, 13, and son Jack, 10.
A contrite Jon Gosselin reveals that he has regrets about his behavior towards ex-wife Kate Gosselin in a new interview, saying about the steady stream of women he dated after their split, "I am sorry, because I did stuff I wouldn't want done to me."
Three years after his headline-making divorce, the 35-year-old former Jon & Kate Plus 8 reality star tells People he was "passive-aggressive" about how he handled things: "Then I'd get mad, but I was the one who wasn't communicating."
Jon says he now reaches out to Kate when it comes to the kids, calling her a great mom: "I'll call her up and say, 'Mady's sick. What do I do?' And she'll tell me," he says. "She's a great mom. We just have different parenting styles."
People reports that Jon has moved back to Berks County, PA, recently started a new job as director of sales and promotions for Gameface Int. -- and is dating a single mom named Liz Jannetta, who is eight years his junior.
As for his flash of fame, Jon explains that he had the wrong perspective: "I used to talk to Rabbi Shmuley Boteach (the former star of TLC's Shalom in the Home) a lot when I lived in New York. He said, 'There are two things you can do with your fame – sell out or take it and use it for good.' I didn't grasp that at the time."
So with a new perspective, will Jon return to the entertainment world? Perhaps…
"I've been offered a lot of stuff," he says. "Crazy stuff. It wasn't the right fit, then or now. I don't want [my kids] thinking I take every show just to make a buck."
Congratulations are in order for Wynonna Judd!
The country singer married Cactus Moser, a drummer in her band The Big Noise, in a sunset wedding on June 10 on her farm in Leiper's Fork, Tenn., Us Weekly is reporting.
This is the third marriage for Judd, who divorced her second husband D.R. Roach in 2007. She has two children, Grace, 16, and Elijah, 17, with her first husband Arch Kelly III, whom she split from in 1998.
Judd chose a long-sleeved lace Houri Barahimi dress for the occasion, and in keeping with the down-home vibe of the event, went barefoot.
"I felt a joy that hasn't been there before," Judd tells Us of the cozy bash.
Though her two children attended the wedding, her sister Ashley Judd and mother Naomi Judd were not present.
No one was more excited about the planned Dumb and Dumber sequel than Jim Carrey -- but three months after director Peter Farrelly confirmed that both original stars would reprise their iconic roles, ETOnline has exclusively learned that Carrey has exited from the project.
According to sources, Carrey grew increasingly frustrated by New Line and Warner Brothers, who he felt showed a lack of enthusiasm regarding the project.
A sentiment seemingly reinforced by a statement exclusively obtained when ETOnline reached out to the actor's publicist for comment. In addition to confirming the story, Carrey exclusively tells ETOnline, "I would have thought Dumb and Dumber To was a no-brainer, after all it's implied in the title."
While the future of Dumb & Dumber To is now unknown, Carrey's fans can rest easy knowing the actor will be back on the big screen next year in New Line and Warner Brothers' The Incredible Burt Wonderstone.
