Mick Jagger and his divine Jerry Hall are not speaking to the press right now concerning those splitsville stories from London. After 20 years of togetherness, three kids and almost constant rumors that Mick was an incorrigible roustabout, Hall -- one of the world's sweetest, savviest women -- is said to have filed for divorce to end their six-year marriage.

Jagger's press rep Fran Curtis would only say: "This is a private matter. Mick is a private person. He has no comment, and we must respect that." Well, of course, we respect that, but it doesn't mean we aren't going to go elsewhere for a more colorful quote, Fran!

So here it is. An intimate of both Hall and Jagger told us, "Don't bet the rent that this is 'it.' They've had problems before. Serious problems. They still love each other and adore their children. Theirs is a modern marriage, but very volatile. They might divorce. Or they might be married 20 more years. And that's basically been the nature of their relationship since day one -- tenuous on one hand, stronger than steel on the other."

Drew Barrymore is said to be wonderful as the romantic lead in Woody Allen's upcoming first musical, "Everyone Says I Love You." But just as her career is heating up again, Barrymore wants the stability of family life. In New York recently, the adorable Drew told us, "I'm moving to Fredericksburg, Texas -- in addition to making movies, I want to make babies!"

But don't anticipate any sort of bucolic retirement for the former wild child. She's also forming her own movie company, called Flower Films, because, she says, "I love flowers."
