Mayer and Minka -- Dunzo?

1/10/2008 2:01 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

John Mayer and Minka Kelly have called off their brief romance, reports People. They split over a month ago, but still remain friends.

Kelly had been spotted at Mayer's December concert in L.A and even went with him to the after-party where they were supposedly "cozy." TMZ spotted her just a couple days ago -- very coy indeed about her relationship -- now we know why.

Says a pal of Minka's, "Minka told a couple friends that she and John had broken up, but she really didn't want to tell anyone."

Katie Gets Special Charity – to Run, Run, Run!


Katie Holmes is getting to run the Boston Marathon, even though her qualifying time wasn't fast enough, reports Us -- and she's getting an exemption to do so, something marathon organizers are calling a "charity entrance."

Holmes' time at the New York City marathon was about two hours slower than she would've needed to get into Boston, but she's getting in anyway. Meanwhile, she did a little running of her own last night ... away from the L.A. premiere of her new movie, "Mad Money." OK! mag is quoting Katie's spokesperson as saying, "She's not running the Boston Marathon." We'll see.

Boss Pays $200K to Settle Lawsuit


Bruce Springsteen doesn't have much of a stomach for suits -- he's just, according to the Palm Beach Post, paid $200,000 to an Olympic equestrian to settle a lawsuit after being accused of reneging on a contract to buy an $850,000 pony.

The Boss' daughter Jessica wants to ride, and he had arranged to buy the 10-year-old gelding, Pavarotti, from Todd Minikus. But somewhere along the line, the Boss got cold feet, and decided not to do it. Neither side will comment on the settlement.

Letting Katie "Zombie" Holmes Cruise run the Boston Marathon without properly qualifying is disgraceful and disgusting. Shame on the BAA.

The common folk have to run a qualifying marathon time at another race in order to participate in the Boston Marathon. Who is she - or to be precise, who the heck is her control freak overlord Tom Cruise - that she gets such special treatment? What has either of them done for Boson or for the BAA? How much did the freakazoid couple have to pay for the privilege?

I have a friend who trained all summer long, endured the horror that was the Chicago Marathon, and then ran another race two weeks later just to qualify for Boston. That Katie Holmes can shuffle through the New York in over 5 hours and still get to run in Boston is a disgrace. My friend will run and finish Boston with the pride that comes from hard work and dedication. I doubt Katie will be able to say the same.

Katie isn't really getting special treatment. Thousands of people who run the Boston Marathon do so without a qualifying time. There are numerous charities associated with the marathon who have "teams." The charities sponsor runners on the condition that they raise/donate $2K to the charity. Do your research TMZ!

Re: Celebrity dating

TMZ, why is it every time 2 celebs are seen together it's a romance? If you reported it as "dating", you wouldn't look so foolish a week later when they "break up"!

It must be hard to realize your site and program is Brittany/Lohan driven. Not much interest in anything else...

Readers... Watch the numbers in the lower right corners. If anything happens to those two meatheads, these assklowns
are toast!

@ #s 2, 4, and 7...this is NOT special treatment. the boston marathon reserves a certain number of spaces EVERY SINGLE YEAR for charity entries. individuals who did not qualify or who did qualify but want to run for a GOOD CAUSE, apply directly to the charity and are picked by the charity themselves NOT the marathon or the organization. I have two friends running in the boston marathon this year, one of whom has never run a marathon before and was selected by a charity to run for them. why would you criticize someone doing something for a good cause and to bring recognition to a charity's name???
