Hobby Lobby Did Not Fire An Employee For Getting A Divorce


(PCM) Despite whatever rumors you may have seen circulating, it turns out the Hobby Lobby did not fire an employee for obtaining a divorce without company approval.

The story which was posted on The Daily Currant claimed that 33-year old Hobby Lobby employee Jennifer Silverton was terminated after she filed for divorce from her abusive husband of six years. The story claims that Silverton was terminated for reasons of “moral laxity” after upper management learned about the divorce proceedings.

The story goes on to say that Silverton never expected that filing for divorce would affect her job and was told it was for religious reasons.

While Hobby Lobby is certainly no stranger to controversy when it comes to some of their business practices and Christian values, they previously sued the Obama administration to avoid being forced to provide health care that provided contraception coverage for its’ female employees. That move caused Hobby Lobby to recieve a ton of negative backlash.

However, it appears that this story regarding Silverton being fired for getting a divorce is completely fabricated. The Daily Currant is a satirical news publication and majority of their stories are completely made-up and posted to create a buzz or make a joke.

People need to pay a bit more attention to the source of their information before jumping to conclusions.

Khloe-Lamar1(PCM) There has been so much speculation about the status celebrity couple Khloe Kardashian and Lama Odom’s relationship it would almost make your head spin. Now it seems that the rumors have been put to rest of the Khloe is officially filing for divorce today.

The pair were rumored to be on and off again several times over the last few months and were recently spotted together over the Thanksgiving holiday.

Sources close to the couple reveal that Khloe was pushed toward divorce due to Lamar’s alleged drug addiction and numerous reports of infidelity. Lamar is denying those claims and says he did not at all cheat on Khloe.

Bad Breaks: 6 Ugly Celebrity Separations

The recipe for a juicy celebrity separation? Start by combining two stars with overly healthy egos into one relationship. Next, stir occasionally with large doses of groupie love and fawning yes-men and women. Finally, bake the whole mess under the blinding light of paparazzi flashbulbs until — voila —the entire thing explodes. Of course, some breakups are worse than others. Much worse.

Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore

The world’s most famous cougar isn’t about to take her claws out of boy toy Ashton Kutcher without a fight. The two, who separated after several allegations about Kutcher cheating hit the tabloids, have been entangled in a very messy and drawn-out divorce. Now, according to the New York Daily News, Moore is seeking spousal support, even though she is reportedly worth about $10 million dollars more than Kutcher. And, according to GetDirectTV.org, he can pay for it, being one of the highest-paid TV actors — earning $24 million for the 2011-2012 seasons of “Two and a Half Men.”

Katy Perry and Russell Brand

They seemed like an odd couple from the start, the pretty pop singer and the unorthodox, scruffy English actor.

Fourteen months later, however, Brand informed Perry that the marriage was over — by text message. Perry claims she has not heard from Brand since receiving the electronic dismissal.

Samantha Ronson and Lindsay Lohan

Somewhere in the mess that has become Lindsay Lohan’s life, she fell in love with celebrity D.J. Samantha Ronson. Although Lohan now chalks up the same-sex relationship to an experimental phase in her life, the actress was reportedly devastated when Ronson broke up with her via a text message, according to Today.com. The breakup with Lohan was so bad that the D.J. found it necessary to change the locks on her home. Because Ronson’s and Lohan’s relationship had been so tumultuous, LiLo’s father has laid part of the blame for his daughter’s continuing troubles to this day on that past relationship with Ronson.

Kevin Federline and Britney Spears

Having someone break up with you via a text message is bad enough, but it’s even worse when the moment is captured by a film crew. According to Fox 5, that’s exactly what happened to Kevin Federline when his then-wife Britney Spears dumped him as he was being filmed for a reality TV show. Yes, yet another celebrity breakup by text. You would think that all these stars would have something better to do with those cellphones they all own, wouldn’t you?
