Alex Rodriguez split his Thanksgiving day between wife Cynthia‘s house in Miami (where his children live) and Madonna‘s house on nearby Star Island. Bonus: at some point, the pair met up with billionaire Jeff Soffer and Gwyneth Paltrow, who seems to have decided against spending the holiday with husband Chris Martin. [NYDN]

Amy Winehouse has started meeting with divorce lawyers to talk about officially ending her marriage to Blake Fielder-Civil. [The Sun]

Sort of average girl Sam Durrani—an "actress and US Army reservist who claims to be descended from Afghan royalty"—claims she refused to invite Colin Farrell into her apartment after they split a cab home from Greenhouse, though the actor’s rep says "[Farrell] does not know Sam Durrani and does not remember ever meeting her."
