(Newser) – It's over for Kate Beckinsale and husband Len Wiseman after a dozen years of marriage. TMZ reports that Wiseman, a director, filed for divorce citing irreconcilable differences. He and Beckinsale, who wed in 2004, don't have any kids. Rumors of trouble have swirled since last November, when Beckinsale was seen without her wedding ring and Wiseman was seen out with a model. It's apparently a good time to break up in Hollywood:

  • Mariah Carey and James Packer have called off their engagement, TMZ reports, though the gossip site notes that sources say "the door is not completely shut ... yet." Reportedly, Packer was unhappy with Carey's reality show, and the final straw came when she met up with a dancer from her Vegas show and it was taped for the reality show. But an Australian tabloid claims Packer was also upset with Carey's "extravagant spending."

  • Sources told Radar that Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx had split after a three-year under-the-radar relationship, all because Holmes wanted to finally "go public." But E! and Us are reporting that the couple is still together.
