Sam Shepard, Jessica Lange are over

Talk about keeping something hush hush: Actress Jessica Lange and her partner, actor Sam Shepard, are separated. And it turns out they split up almost two years ago, Lange's rep confirms for CNN.

According to People magazine, the couple started their romance back in 1982 and had two kids along the way. An unnamed source tells the magazine that Lange and Shepard are both "pursuing independent lives."

Shepard looks to have a number of projects lined up, including a role in Denzel Washington's February release, "Safe House," which also stars Ryan Reynolds.

Lange, meanwhile, is up for a best supporting actress Golden Globe for her work in FX's new hit "American Horror Story," and will appear alongside Rachel McAdams in 2012's "The Vow" - which coincidentally opens the same day as "Safe House," on February 10.

An alive Bon Jovi: Heaven looks like New Jersey

Another celebrity death hoax surfaced on Monday, this time trying to claim the life of Jon Bon Jovi.

A blog item suggested that the 49-year-old musician had died in New Jersey Monday - a posting that the Los Angeles Times says looks awfully familiar to their 2009 story on Michael Jackson's death - but the report was certainly erroneous.

His rep confirmed this, sending out a statement that the singer is alive, well, and still actively attending charity events, as he did last night in Red Bank, New Jersey.

By Monday evening, Bon Jovi turned to Facebook with photographic proof that he was fine.

"Heaven looks a lot like New Jersey" he jokes in the photo, courtesy of a handmade sign. The caption for the image promised fans, "Rest assured that Jon is alive and well! This photo was just taken."

Chaz Bono and Jennifer Elia call it quits

Chaz Bono talked about his engagement to Jennifer Elia earlier this year on "Piers Morgan Tonight," but now the couple has announced that the engagement is off - and so is the relationship.

According to a statement from Bono's rep, the 42-year-old "Dancing With the Stars" contestant and his fiancee "leave this relationship with great love, respect and affection towards one another."

Bono posted a tweet Monday thanking fans for their concern about the split. "I'm doing fine," he assured everyone, adding that he and Elia "remain on good terms with nothing but respect and affection 4 each other."

The former couple's relationship previously played out for the cameras on the documentary "Becoming Chaz," which captured Bono's gender transition. In 2009 he said of Elia, who supported the decision, "She's been amazing. I feel really grateful to be going through this with a partner."
