Dayanara Torres & Amaury Nolasco Split

Former Miss Universe Dayanara Torres and "Prison Break" star Amaury Nolasco have ended their romantic relationship, the couple announced Monday.

"After a year together we have decided to end our relationship. We will always have a beautiful friendship, great love and mutual respect," the couple said in a statement released to People en Espanol.

Torres, 32, and Nolasco, 36, confirmed their romance in July 2007, when the ex-wife and mother of two of Marc Anthony's sons said that the actor was "a really, sweet guy. We get along great."

The couple, both of whom are Puerto Rican, tried to keep a low profile, but were caught by photographers while on various romantic trips together, including to the Dominican Republic and Paris.

Aerosmith Guitarist Perry Cancels Show For Knee Surgery

3Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry is putting down his ax while he goes under the knife.

Spokeswoman Marcee Rondan says Perry is canceling a solo show on April 5 in Niagara Falls, N.Y., while he recovers from knee surgery.

The statement released Monday says Perry has needed knee surgery for two years but put off the procedure so he wouldn't miss any Aerosmith tour dates.

The 57-year-old's knee finally gave out early this month after a pair of performances with his two sons. That prompted his doctor to schedule the surgery for March 18.

Rondan says Perry apologizes to his fans for missing the show.

University Of Montana Ups The Anty For Elton John's Return Concert

The University of Montana agreed to raise $75,000 for the Elton John AIDS Foundation, as an inducement for John to perform a sold-out show on April 11th at the Adams Center in Missoula.

The Elton John AIDS Foundation has raised $125 million for AIDS-related work in 55 countries since 1992.

The required donation is spelled out in a memorandum of understanding between UM and the Howard Rose Agency, which represents John.

There was a ticket-selling fiasco for last autumn's Elton John concert in Missoula. Thousands of people stood in line, while nearly all the tickets were sold online.

UM then began courting John for a second concert almost immediately.
