What had ETonline readers buzzing this week?
Kanye West is speaking out against claims made by 24-year-old Leyla Ghobadi to Star magazine that he cheated on his pregnant girlfriend Kim Kardashian.
The 36-year-old rapper's rep tells ET: "This most recent attack on Kanye West and his family is totally without merit. It's a blatant attempt by a misguided individual who is clearly seeking publicity, and another in a series of malicious stories drummed up by non-credible 'news' sources. This is a sad attempt to hurt two people trying to live their lives."
Ghobadi alleges that she was seeing West since July 2012 and on into October of last year, when Kardashian was pregnant but had yet to announce. Claiming that the Yeezus singer finds his relationship with the 32-year-old Kardashian as "for publicity and nothing serious," she tells the magazine, "This is going to destroy the Kardashian family. It's bad. It’s really bad. It's just embarrassing. But if I were Kim and about to have a baby, I would want to know."
According to Star, Ghobadi and West's relationship began after he saw her dancing in the crowd at his Atlantic City show in July. He then reportedly asked her to have drinks with him at HQ Nightclub, and then come back to his hotel room. "I refused, as I felt it was too rushed," the Canadian model tells the publication, adding that she did in fact go back with him. "We began to make out for a while, and next thing I knew, we were both naked and having sex."
Ghobadi is claiming that West contacted her as recent as last weekend, but says she's refused to see him since learning of Kardashian's pregnancy.
While West and Kardashian both deny Ghobadi's cheating accusations, Star magazine tells ET that they are standing by their story.
Singer Billy Ray Cyrus and his wife Tish are divorcing after 19 years of marriage.
"This is a personal matter and we are doing what is in the best interest of our family. We ask that you respect our privacy at this time," a rep for the pair told ET Thursday when news of Tish's divorce filing became public.
Billy Ray and Tish filed for divorce previously in 2010, but reconciled months later.
"As you can imagine, this is a very difficult time for our family," the couple told ET at the time of the filing. "We are trying to work through some personal matters. We appreciate your thoughts and prayers."
Billy Ray and Tish have three children together (Miley, Braison, and Noah) and raised two from Tish's previous marriage (Brandi and Trace).

In a recent interview with HuffPost Live, John Stamos, 49, is admitting that his former Full House co-star Lori Loughlin, 48, could be "the one that got away."
Referring to a Loughlin interview where she said that the two -- who famously played couple Jesse and Becky Katsopolis on the beloved ABC show -- never got together because the "timing was always off," Stamos commented that the two actually did date as teens.
"And we actually did date, we went on a date to Disneyland before we were both married. In real life, when we were 18, 19," he revealed. "We did have some off timing, but no disrespect to her family and her husband now, I would say that she could be the one that got away."
But despite admitting to a bit of regret, Stamos is satisfied with how things have worked out.
"She's one of my dearest friends and that's good enough," he says. "But I really do adore her. She has a great husband and he's got a lot of money so ... "
