Oscar-winner Robert Redford, 72, tied the knot with abstract painter Sibylle Szaggars, 51, his girlfriend of more than a decade, in her native Hamburg, Germany. This is the second marriage for the actor-filmmaker, who was wed to ex-wife Lola from 1958 to 1985.
The Hollywood Hills home of Orlando Bloom, 32, was burglarized. Police said about $500,000 in jewelry, cash and artwork was stolen from the Pirates of the Caribbean star, who was not at the scene. • Burn Notice star Jeffrey Donovan, 41, was arrested for DUI in Miami Beach July 12. Police said he "did not perform to standards" in a roadside sobriety test after they saw him swerve to avoid hitting a patrol car. They said he told them, "The only mistake I made tonight was drinking Benadryl with three glasses of wine."
Beastie Boys member Adam "MCA" Yauch, 44, has been diagnosed with a cancerous tumor in his left salivary gland. "Luckily it was caught early and is localized in one area, and as such is considered very treatable," said a rep for his hip-hop group.
Blake Fielder-Civil, 27, husband of singer Amy Winehouse (inset), 25, was granted a divorce in London July 16, after two turbulent years of marriage.
A crane toppled onto the stage being built for Madonna's concert at a stadium in Marseille, France, July 16, killing French lighting technician Charles Criscenzo, 53, and British stage technician Charles Prow, 23, and injuring eight other workers.
Pope Benedict XVI, 82, is "in good condition" after fracturing his right wrist in an early morning fall while on vacation in northern Italy July 17, says the Vatican. He was released from the hospital that day after successfully undergoing surgery and will have to wear a cast for about a month.
Singer-guitarist Gordon Waller, 64, of the duo Peter and Gordon, who were a part of pop music's British Invasion, died in Norwich, Conn., July 17 after suffering cardiac arrest at his nearby home. He and Peter Asher, 65, are best known for their 1964 No. 1 hit "A World Without Love," written by Paul McCartney.
Pulitzer Prize-winner Frank McCourt, 78, best known for his 1996 memoir Angela's Ashes, died in Manhattan July 19 of metastatic melanoma. The Brooklyn, N.Y.-born author's bestseller, adapted for a 1999 feature film, recounted in harrowing detail his impoverished upbringing in Ireland before moving back to the United States at 19. "We asked where he wanted his ashes scattered," his daughter Maggie told PEOPLE. "He said in Roxbury, Conn., because he spent happy times there and that's where Arthur Miller is buried and he was close to him." Following his death, friends and family went to a restaurant and "sang his favorite Irish ballads," says his granddaughter Chiara. "He always said the Irish way was to celebrate your life rather than mourn your death."
