Tom Cruise's divorce from Katie Holmes generated big headlines but little actual detail about the split. Now a newly leaked deposition from the action star's legal proceeding against Bauer Publishing is giving a small peek behind the scenes. Cruise in October 2012 brought a $50-million defamation suit against the publisher of Life & Style and InTouch magazines over cover stories that accused him of abandoning daughter Suri after the split with Holmes. In the supposedly confidential depo, obtained by TMZ and others, Cruise admitted that although Holmes was a practicing Scientologist before and during the marriage, she ended her relationship with the church at the time of the divorce.

So much for "Forever in Love," Kenny G.

Aww. Hulk Hogan was so adorable on the "Today" show Tuesday, we kind of feel bad for watching that excerpt of his sex tape. 'Cause the dude's super bummed it was released. Bummed in a big, cuddly, former-wrestler-who's-gonna-tear-apart-whoever-did-it way. Turns out the tape, which surfaced in March and went public - at least a part of it - last week, was made six years ago at a time when Hogan said he was at a "very, very low point" in his life. He said he didn't know there was a camera in the room and that he's working with authorities to track down the person or people who made and released the tape.
