“I need to be more accessible, especially to the ones I love.”
Linda Kozlowski has filed for divorce from Paul Hogan after 23 years of marriage.
The couple separated last month. Kozlowski has cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for filing divorce, while a rep for the Crocodile Dundee actor says the split has been amicable.
Paul, 74, is reportedly worth $20 million, and it is expected that Linda, 55, will seek spousal support as well as joint legal and physical custody of their 15-year-old son Chance.
Paul was married twice to Noelene Hogan, first in 1958, then again in 1982, and the couple have five children together. Their second divorce in 1986 was one of Australia’s ugliest celebrity splits.
This will be Paul Hogan’s third divorce, from two wives – he married first wife Noelene, then divorced her, then remarried her. When it finally blew up permanently in 1986, the split became one of Australia’s ugliest celebrity divorces.
Katy Perry has revealed she felt suicidal as her marriage to Russell Brand broke down.
The singer, 28, opens up in the latest issue of Billboard magazine, describing how low she felt after Brand, 38, told her he was divorcing her – by text message – on New Year’s Eve of 2011.
‘That song [By the Grace of God, from her new album Prism] is evident of how tough it really was at a certain point,” she admitted. “I asked myself, “Do I want to endure? Should I continue living?'”
Perry says her songs contain the stories of her life.
“All the songs are real-life moments. I can only write autobiographically. I put all the evidence in the music. I tell my fans if they want to know the real truth about stuff, just listen to the songs.’
She also alluded to the divorce in another song, Ghost.
“You sent a text / It’s like the wind changed your mind.”
She has previously said that she hasn’t heard from her ex-husband since that text message.

The pop star also gushed about boyfriend John Mayer: “He literally is a genius, as is evident from his songwriting. I always tell him, ‘Darling, you know I’m going to have to give your mind to science after you’ve passed, because we’re going to have to understand how all these sparks work.’
“We’ll be in bed, and he’ll be doing the crossword puzzle. Every night, he tries to finish it in under 10 minutes. When he puts his mind to something, he really gets it done very well. I always ask for his help.”
