Holly Valance Compensates Sacked Manager

Pop beauty HOLLY VALANCE has been ordered to pay $240,000 (GBP150,000) to the manager she fired when her career took off.

The KISS KISS singer must pay the sum to SCOTT MICHAELSON after he convinced a court in their native Australia last month (OCT03) he was unfairly dismissed in January 2002.

JUDGE CLIFFORD EINSTEIN told the NEW SOUTH WALES SUPREME COURT Valance had shown a "calculated disregard" for Michaelson, who discovered her aged 15.

Michaelson's lawyer says, "I hope I have been able to represent in some way the many managers that have been in a similar position to me but have not had the means to proceed to court."

Holly Valance To Wed Billionaire Nick Candy In Lavish Three-Day Ceremony 3302862 News

Holly Valance is going to have all the stops pulled out for her by her billionaire fiancé over a lavish three-day ceremony this weekend that'll see the pair get married. The actress and singer revealed earlier this year that she was delaying plans to marry her partner, British property tycoon Nick Candy, so that they could enjoy summertime in the UK, which was playing host to the Olympics as well as Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee.

With the decidedly not sunny British summer finished with though, the couple are now finally ready to walk down the aisle and will be exchange vows in a black-tie ceremony at a beachfront location in Malibu, California on Saturday (September 29th). The celebrations will kick off with a reception dinner for friends and family on the Friday night (September 27th), with a "recovery" barbecue planned for Sunday (September 30th), suggesting that it's going to be a rather heavy weekend of festivities.

Simon Cowell and Sir Elton John are reportedly among the stars said to have received hand-delivered invitations, in which the bride and groom nicknamed themselves "Valandy". Candy proposed to Valance on a beach last December, getting down on bended knee in front of a display which read "Will You Marry Me" in flames.

Just What Is A 'Pre-nup'? - The Winners And Losers Of Celebrity Divorces 2573769 News
The 2011/12 Christmas and New Year period have been a busy time in the world of celebrity marriages. A string of high profile couples have been revealing news of their weddings and engagements over the past few weeks. The property tycoon Nick Candy proposed to his Australian pop starlet Holly Valance on holiday, with the words 'Marry Me' lit up in flames. Steven Tyler of Aerosmith furnished Erin Brady with an impressive diamond ring to kick-start their wedding plans and Matthew Mcconaughey treated fans to a picture of him and Camila Alves kissing by the Christmas tree shortly after he popped the question.

It's not all been about romance and diamond rings, though. The festive period is often a time that magnifies problems in a relationship and many couples crack under the extra strain. Perhaps the most high profile moment in the recent spate of public separations was Russell Brand's trip to a Los Angeles court house to file the divorce papers that would ultimately end his marriage to Katy Perry. The state of their relationship had been the subject of media speculation for some time and when they were pictured in separate countries, minus their wedding rings on Christmas Day - the rumour mill slowly ground to a satisfied halt.

Though they separated back in September 2011, the actress Zooey Deschanel and Death Cab For Cutie singer Ben Gibbard made their split official when the New Girl star filed for divorce on the grounds of irreconcilable differences. Details of the divorce proceedings made their way into the hands of TMZ.com, detailing Deschanel's personal finances and prompting speculation over how the couple will split their fortunes - the actress is already worth at least $3 million. Celebrity divorces are nothing new but the notion of the 'pre-nup' (a contractual agreement made before the marriage, in the eventuality of a split) is something that is discussed more and more when those in the limelight decide to go their separate ways.

The exact content of a pre-nuptial agreement can vary widely from couple to couple and will depend on what each individual wishes to protect. Most commonly, though, they include advance decisions on the division of property and post-marital financial support for either partner. They may even include certain forfeits, should any adultery take place. People's views on pre-nups vary as widely as their content. Some argue that they counteract the very notion of marriage and undermine the vows that people adopt when they get married which, in many cases will include the terms "for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health" and, crucially, "'til death do us part." Others, more pessimistically, insist that they are a crucial part of modern marriage. In 2009, there were 231,490 marriages but almost half as many divorces. To the realist with a view unclouded by romantic notions, it makes sense for couples to reach an agreement whilst they are still getting along, rather than trying to thrash things out under the bitterness of separation.

In the UK, pre-nups are not generally considered to be legally valid, though they are becoming more accepted. In the USA, they are more widely used and, among wealthy couples, they are almost expected. In order for them to be legally valid, however, both parties must be represented by a lawyer. One celebrity to fall foul of this rule, quite spectacularly, was the director Steven Spielberg when he split with his wife Amy Irving in 1989. The couple had been married for four years but it soon became apparent that the Et mastermind may have been better prepared for the split if he had written his pre-nuptial agreement on paper, in a lawyer's office, rather than on the back of a cocktail napkin. The outcome of this expensive lesson was that the judge dismissed the validity of the napkin and Spielberg had to hand over $100 million of his fortune.

In the state of California, where Russell Brand filed for divorce, a prenuptial agreement can override the state rules regarding the split of property and can limit spousal support. In Brand's case, the lack of a pre-nuptial agreement could land him with a huge share of his wife's fortune. Whether or not Brand will claim his share of Perry's assets remains to be seen but if he does, current speculations suggest that he could net around $20 million.

Other 'winners' of the lack-of-pre-nup situation include Mel Gibson's ex wife, Robyn, who divorced her husband after 28 years of marriage. In a settlement that dwarfs the Brand / Perry proceedings, she was entitled to half of Gibson's $900 million fortune.

Some celebrities, it seems, aren't very good at learning from the mistakes of their expensive divorces. Paul Mccartney's separation from Heather Mills was played out in the tabloids and their lack of a pre-marital arrangement meant that, at the end of their acrimonious split, MCCartney had to pay around $70,000 per year in childcare and education costs alone for their daughter. The former Beatles star recently married again, to NANCY SHEVELL No doubt wary of any ensuing 'gold-digger' accusations, Shevell offered to sign a pre-nup, but MCCartney refused, despite the financial cost of his last marriage.

Reese Witherspoon showed the same single-mindedness when she married Jim Toth. She chose not to sign an agreement, despite her previous husband being entitled to a hefty percentage of her wealth when they divorced. At the time that she split from RYAN PHILLIPE, she was earning a reported $20 million per film, whilst he was commanding just $2.5 million per movie himself.

Perhaps the biggest loser of the pre-nup situation, though not necessarily financially, is the basketball player Kris Humphries. When he married the reality TV star Kim Kardashian, the couple did sign a pre-nuptial agreement. When their marriage ended just 72 days after it had begun, the contract prevented him from speaking publicly about the marriage. No doubt feeling scarred by the very public saga, Humphries has reportedly called for the pre-nup to be dismissed so that he can let the public know his side of the story.

It is not thought that Deschanel and Gibbard had signed a prenuptial agreement. It looks likely then, that the fiscal details of their split - like Russell Brand and Katy Perry's - will remain under the media spotlight over the coming months. With the divorce statistics soaring it is sobering for the general public to get an insight into celebrity marriages. Despite their seemingly glittering, advantaged lifestyles, celebrities are just as susceptible to making hasty decisions that ultimately lead to heartbreak. Divorce and custody battles aren't just for the realm of the proletariat. Their marriages may start off with expensive dresses and extravagant, magazine-bound celebrations but when it goes wrong, they end up in the court house, just like everyone else.

THE sparks are already flying for Kiss Kiss, the debut single from Holly Valance – who with her very first single is already proving herself a brand new pop star. Kiss Kiss is an exotically funky mix of fresh r n' b, breathy vocals and shivery Balkan melodies that's shaping up as the hottest chart debut this year. Which is why everyone from Marie Claire to heat have already showcased Holly's hit.

Kiss Kiss is already on Radio 1's prestigious A-list weeks ahead of release, it's Number One on The Box and Number One on MTV. It's the kind of cool, catchy, crossover smash that burrows its unforgettable choruses into your head and won't get out again. But Kiss Kiss is doubly notable - because it's the dawn of a new pop career for the actress already famous to millions Felicity 'Flick' Scully from Neighbours.

Holly Valance @ www.contactmusic.com

Holly is smart, funny, and mature beyond her years - a long way from ditzy Flick. Unlike her character, Holly moved away from home when she was just 16. "I've always been my own little free spirit," she says. "I was financially stable enough to do so." And singing, not acting, is her first love. She's been doing it all her life. "For me, it's not that big a change," says Holly. "Now I'm being recognised on the streets by people who really like the song, which is good. Music is more me. It's what I really like doing. It's what I can really get my teeth into."

Kiss Kiss reworks a Turkish hit single with a brisk rub down and a taste of the r n' b flavours Holly loves so much. This exotic fusion is what makes it so refreshing. "That's why I liked it, I love all that sort of music," grins Holly. "I've got a Yugoslav background so it's not that different to what you hear at family parties." Her debut album, though, promises to cover all bases - from r n' b styles through to guitar-based numbers. "It's going to something new," enthuses Holly, who is already writing material in readiness.

Both Holly's parents are former models - which is why she was modeling herself by the age of 12. "I was always around people from the industry," she says. "I didn't take it very seriously. If a 13-year-old can earn 300 bucks an hour, why not?" But both parents are also deadly serious about music. Holly's dad Ryko is an accomplished jazz guitarist and pianist. Her mother Rachel is a fanatic music fan who has always kept her daughter ahead of the latest trends: from Soul II Soul through to American trance wonder BT through to Marilyn Manson and Slayer.

Holly's taste in music is equally eclectic. Her favourite albums include Paul Oakenfold's classic New York DJ mix for Global Underground and Missy Elliot's Miss E... So Addictive. On her recent tour of British radio stations, Holly harassed all the house DJs until she found the Superfly white label bootleg she was after. The first place she heads for in a new town is the nearest record store. And the first thing she does when she gets home is slip a CD into her player.
Holly is as talented a singer as she is an actress, but despite her sun-kissed good looks, she’s as much a breath of fresh air as her hit. Holly’s the kind of star everyone can relate to – an unpretentious, wise-cracking, independent-minded young woman who enjoys swimming near her Brighton Beach home in Melbourne, kickboxing, and hanging out with her mates. It's jeans and boots for Holly, not designer gear.

The visually stunning video to Kiss, Kiss showcases a sexier image for Holly - but she knew she had to signal her change in career. "We had to get as far away from the Neighbours thing as possible - and I don't think you can get much further away from the good little girl in her school dress in Erinsborough," she says.
Holly's movie star looks have also set pulses racing on the pages of men's magazines and tabloid newspapers - but she's no diva, and her feet are firmly on the ground. "I don't think there's anything wrong with doing flattering, womanly shots in a bikini," she says. "I don't have a problem with that. There's nothing distasteful."

And if you do manage to persuade Holly to turn up to a premiere, she's more likely to sneak in the back entrance to avoid photographers. At the National Television Awards, she shot up the red carpet so quickly they had to send her back to walk up it again - because all the photographers had missed their shots. "I get so embarrassed and shy," she grimaces.

Holly’s exotic, Middle European looks come from her cosmopolitan background in Melbourne. Holly's dad is Serbo-Croat; her mum is English. Her parents divorced when she was four, but a happy family and a positive relationship between her parents has kept her grounded. "I have the biggest extended family," she says. "It's really hard to explain unless I draw it."
Holly's mum and dad had her and her sister Rachel. Her dad remarried Tanya, and they had her half sister Olympia, before splitting. Now Tanya and Holly's mum are best friends, and Tanya has married Ross Wilson, lead singer in Daddy Cool, the seminal 1970s Australian rock band. And they've had two more children - Athena and Dimitri - who Holly considers her step-brother and sister. She's even Dimitri's god-mother. It may be an unconventional family background, but it's helped make her who she is today. "It's worked for us. It's a very happy place to be. Apart from the fact that everyone's broken up, we're all still together."

Being in the limelight since the age of 12 hasn't affected Holly's breezy, down to earth personality. She nearly didn't take the Neighbours part she was offered after a series of auditions at 15. "I knew how much everything would change. I didn't want to be famous, I didn't care about that side of things." Luckily Holly's parents made her see sense. "They knew I could set myself up." They’ve also given her a taste of hard work and a head for the pressures of stardom. Which means no matter how hectic things get, Holly never loses her head. “I prefer it when everything's going wrong, and it's chaotic," she grins. Holly's move into music is already proving to be a breeze. And as you can see, she's already used to causing a stir wherever she goes.
