    I thought he had another girlfriend …big surprise.. goes to show that we don’t know much about these celebs lives. good for them.

  • pinayto

    wow.. galing ano?

  • sillyme

    Glad to hear it. I guess another baby will be on the way soon, if not already in the oven. Hard to believe he’s only 46, though – same age as Brad Pitt. I’d have put him in his 50′s easily.

  • ac

    He kinda reminds me of Daniel Craig. A not as good looking Daniel Craig

  • state ziti

    I didn’t think he would marry her, being she’ half mexican and all but I’m glad he did. At least she’s not a Puerto Rican that would be worst than anything!

  • Good move

    $16.9 billion reasons for a marriage.

  • Maria

    She is MEXICAN! Better, much better than the lowly puerto ricans, don’t even put them in the same category please.

  • senior

    Congratulations to Salma and Francois, fabulous news!!!!! :)

  • bella

    Congrats to both of them :)

  • anon

    Salma is half Arabic (Lebanese) and half Mexican. The Frenchmen love Arab looking women.

    That’s how you do. Keep the tabs making up lies and send all the decoy girlffirends to tmz then BAM you quietly get married. Congrats.

  • marina

    state ziti, you are racist and maybe never have been out of your country.
    Salma is half Lebanese, but even full blooded Mexicans can go and marry whomever they choose, you know? They may even be smarter or richer than many.
    2 names: Maria Felix and her french banker Berger and Carlos Slim and widow queen Noor of Jordan

  • Mistress

    yeah, the Mexicans aren’t the problem, the ugly, poor, uneducated Sp!cs are the problem. I like Mexicans, I hate puerto rican sp!cs! Stupid island monkeys!

  • dianel

    I did’nt think it was going to hapen but congratulions

  • BB Boricua

    i hate being a puerto rican i tell everyone that i am mexican.

  • British Latin American

    To be more precise, she is a Mexican of Spanish and Lebanase descent, not a mestiza.

  • gerard Vandenberg

    Their divorce is scheduled on monday, folks!!

  • British Latin American

    What’s the problem with being Mexican or Puerto Rican, regardless of your ethnicity or colour anyhow? I really hate all these cowardly internet racists! For the record, the french have married Latin Americans, at least the more socially elevated ones, for generations.

  • Farrah

    What ever, she’s still a WET Back who got lucky and snared a rich white guy.

  • ladida

    Guess she finally agreed to sign the pre-nup. Congrats to the enterprising couple.


    Nothing against Mexicans, we hate SP!CS!!

  • blondie

    Now, If we can just get John Mayer
    to sign Jennifer’s pesky little pre-nup.

    My guess is that Jen will insist on everything,
    all of the time, whatever, and whenever….
    from top to botton, and inside and out.

    While John gets the shirt on his back.

    Ha ha ha ha.

  • claire

    And no, the French don’t marry wetbacks you only fantasize that they do. This man is a disgrace to his family name.

  • mediterranean

    Salma has finally signed the pre-nup and he has accepted what she asked to get.


  • Petey

    He’s a billionaire. Jackpot!

  • enchilada buster

    state ziti=Maria=BB Boricua=claire: all the same person sorry troll,you sound like you are mexican,whats your gripe the puerto ricans dear,sorry to break it you dear mexicans ARE THE WETBACKS,they come ilegally in the country ,they have no american citezenship,,,PUERTO RICANS DO!!!!! Is that here your jealousy comes from??

  • I agree Mistress

    Puke Ricans are lazy, poor, gangbanging cockroaches and everybody hates their guts. They are the illegal aliens who cause all the problems not the Mexicans! Mexicans are cool. Sp!cs are the worst so don’t focuse on the Mexicans save your enmity for the island monkey sp!cs.



  • @enchilada buster

    shup up with the anger between mexicans and puerto ricans! There is no racial tension or anger between the 2 countries.
    If at all, it exists in the US, not outside of them.
    And what’s with the wetbacks and French? What’s the point? as if people are crossing the border to the US to get married in France… Really? Is that what you think?
    Jealous b*****

  • um

    Salma’s father was in the oil industry. She grew up very comfortable. She actually looks more Arab than Indo/Mexican. She says she always get stopped at airports and has to go on last after a search because of her Arabic name.

    Lost’s of Mexican’s are only Mexican by birth but have heritage in other countries like the painter Salma protrayed on film Freida Khalo.

    Congratulations. I have a feeling she will represent women of her station better than any other. Bling it on Salma!

  • she-who-shall-not-be-named

    The news almost gave me a heart attack as I was scroling down the home page! This mariage smells like a long negotiation of financial transaction! The best part is the kid gets to be with her father. Salma must be doing the victory!

  • state ziti

    Poor America with her sp!c and wet back problems. Man cant all these brown people leave white folks alone.

  • congrats

    I hope this marriage works out better than actress Ellen Barkin’s marriage to billionaire Ronald Perlman

  • salma marries .

    I won’t believe it until they announce it themselves. What does having to be mexican have to do with this. Where is the marriage license

    Where is there publicist announcing it!

  • Mistress

    As was previously stated, the wetbacks are not the problem folks so focus in on the puerto rican sp!cs who are the worst pieces of sh!t in America. they are not citizens and they never will be.

  • marina

    different as is in the US, in other ocuntries, people do not go around with a microscope examining if they are half this or a quarter of that.
    You are what you are. Mexican oh, and happens that someone is from here or there.
    There is not a culture of announcing or go asking around “What’s your descent?” “where are your parents from?” people only asks in cases where the last name is very unusual or something like that.
    Yes, some groups like the jews, lebanese, or germans tend to meet and preserve their culture, and many times (not always) marry in their own groups. Other than that, they are happily working and mixing with others out of their groups. They preserve their language and at the same time speak spanish, so, they are bilingual communities.
    Sometimes the Americans are the ones who refuse to learn the language, and try to relate only to other Americans. Fortunately, not everyone is like that.
    The history of Puerto Rico and Mexico is different, also their political situation and size. There is no way to compare, except that they are both Latin countries, we share language and there is a history of cultural sharing, with hard working people.

    Many Puerto Rican artists have succeeded in Mexico and many have gone there too. Great. Puerto Rico is an associeted state of the US, so, in a sense, they are American too, no point in calling them names.

    This overanalysis of this and that

  • @ state ziti

    poor America with the red skinned people, native americans who could have done better if it weren’t for all the white folks that came their way.

  • ?

    She’s no a muslimia is she?

    The Colombian singer Shakira is also of Lebanese background.

  • Fulanito

    Puerto Ricans hard-working? HAAAAAAAAAAA! Welfare & Food Stamp Central. Fed by the Dominicans.

  • Hmmm

    Who cares what race they happen to be, as long as their happy is all that matters!!!
    I hope it lasts and wish them the best!!! How romantic to be married on St. Valintines day!!

  • marina

    well said, hmmm!!!

  • Please

    what’s with this PR vs. Mexican nonsense? It’s all the same..sorry but allof the Americas are the same. To people around the world the Americas, North, South, Central and the Caribbean ARE THE FKING SAME!!!!!! And they are. so move on.

    Go Salma and Francois. Frenchmen are known for their good taste like the Italian men. The French President got himself an Italian former super model heiress as his wife 3 months after meeting her.
    Carla Brun Sarkozyi is fab.

  • Martin

    Ok, while my previous comment is awaiting moderation, I’ll tell what I think in other words,….why are Americans critizising this woman just because of her race, she is not white American,OK?Well,to be honest with all of you, she is slimmer and more beautiful than any American woman, who eats too many burguers and massive portions, the problem in America is that there is too much in-breeding, too many agy people getting together with fat and ugly people and producing uglier children, they don’t mix as they are so racist,so the population is getting uglier and uglier, only Hollywood is safe,maybe because of the plastic surgery.

    Mexicans and sp!cs are not the same @ all, you fail. Stop lumping them in with you!

  • Kiri

    I’m not a conservative but do feel that every baby deserves to be born within some form of intentional relationship commitment. All children need (both) a mother and father to mature in a healthy psychological and social manner.

    Please stop the bigotry on the blog!!!!

  • Barry

    I work with Americans here in Peterborough,England and they are always complaining about the size of our portions, they think they are too small, no wonder why they are soo fat,…..they are massive.They need a real mediterranean diet to be healthy, America is not Hollywood and LA,you have to see the real people, it’s not what you see in the movies, and yes, they need to open their minds and mix a bit to get better genes, otherwise, my god!I wouldn’t like to see what real America looks like in 20 years,……

  • x

    ANDY27, I think you should be the one to be deported. Are you aware of the fact that we live in 2009?we don’t have place here for bl**dy racist people like you, so go and f*ck yourself.Where the hell do you come from?learn some manners or go back to where you came from.Maybe no one even care for you there.
