Masonic Temple gets cash reprieve
Musician Jack White has played springtime Santa, paying a $142,000 back tax bill for Detroit’s historic Masonic Temple. The move prevents a threatened auction of the famed venue where The Who and the Rolling Stones once played.
Last Thursday, a then-anonymous donor paid off the famed music venue’s entire 2010-2012 tax delinquency. The 14-story Masonic Temple was days away from being put up for sale. The building is on the National Register of Historic Places. It takes up an entire block and has more than 1,000 rooms, as well as a theater that has featured top performers for decades.
The Detroit Free Press reported that temple President Roger Sobran says his group is renaming the 1,586-seat theater in its benefactor’s name as the Jack White Theater.
Kardashian, Humphries divorce final
A Los Angeles judge has finalized Kim Kardashian’s divorce from NBA player Kris Humphries. Court records show the couple’s divorce judgment was formally entered by Superior Court Judge Hank Goldberg on Monday.
The filing does not reveal any new details about the couple’s split. They reached a settlement in their long-running divorce case in April and signed the judgment in late May.
Humphries had been seeking an annulment of the couple’s marriage but agreed to a divorce before a trial on the matter. He claimed the couple’s lavish, televised wedding was based on fraud, but he never detailed his allegations in court.
Kardashian, a reality show star, filed for divorce in 2011 after the couple had been married 72 days.
