(Newser) – A New Jersey court rejected a bid by alleged Bruce Springsteen flame Ann Kelly to close her divorce proceedings to the public, reports the New York Post. Kelly claims the media attention is bad for her children, but the judge isn't hearing it. "Mere embarrassment or a desire to avoid it doesn't suffice as good cause," she said.
