The weekend kicked off with a bit of a shock, with Katie Holmes filing for divorce from Tom Cruise. Thankfully, there was better news to come from other celebs, like Alec Baldwin, who tied the knot with Hilaria Thomas Saturday.

And that wasn't all that was going down.

We've got details on who rocked the BET Awards, Chris Brown's subtle, sympathetic tweet to Rihanna, and much more on this weekend's doings, right here.

MORE: Five Star Splits That Caught Us by Surprise (as Badly as Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes')

• Tying the Knot: Alec Baldwin and blushing bride Hilaria Thomas married Saturday evening in New York City at the Basilica of St. Patrick's Old Cathedral, in front of celeb guests like Tina Fey, Mariska Hargitay and Woody Allen. Meanwhile, Mick Jagger's daughter, Jade, also said "I do" to disc jockey Adrian Fillary Saturday at the Aynhoe Park Hotel near Banbury, Oxfordshire, England.

• TomKat Update: Just days after Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise split, sources close to the superstar couple told E! News that Scientology and Cruise's mega successful career each played a part in the couple's breakup. Holmes and Cruise have both been laying low since Holmes' divorce filing, but Cruise was spotted taking off in a helicopter in Iceland—the first time he's been seen publicly since news of the couple's split broke Friday.

• Depp in Dublin? Following his split from longtime love Vanessa Paradis , Johnny Depp reportedly jet setted to Dublin and took time to relax. In reality, sources tell us that the Twitter sightings are "totally fake" and that Johnny has been busy filming The Lone Ranger in Utah.
