Johnny Depp Divorce His Family 'Hated' Amber

5/26/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0525-johnny-depp-amber-heard-tmz-03Johnny Depp and Amber Heard's relationship was extremely bitter due to a full-blown feud between his family and Amber ... and this, we're told, is the backdrop for what is already an acrimonious divorce.

Multiple sources connected to the ex-couple tell us, Johnny's 2 teenage kids, his 2 sisters and his mom "hated" Amber, and openly discussed it.  We're told they talked about how Amber would rail on Johnny and "treat him like crap."

Earlier this year, Johnny moved his mother, Betty Sue Palmer, into the L.A. compound where he and Amber lived ... and the tension was palpable. We're told mom often told friends she thought Amber was using Johnny for his money and fame, and to boost her own career.

We're also told before Betty Sue moved in, she only saw her son once from time he married Amber, and both Betty Sue and Johnny blame her for keeping them apart so she'd have full control.   

Our sources say Amber had 2 closed door sit-downs with Johnny's mom after she moved in, and after both meetings Betty Sue railed on her daughter-in-law, calling her a "terrible person."

We broke the story ... Amber filed for divorce Monday ... 3 days after Betty Sue died. There was no prenup, and Amber wants spousal support.

T.I. Shots Ring Out at Concert ... 1 Dead

5/25/2016 8:01 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Shots rang out at a T.I. concert Wednesday night ... multiple people were hit and one is dead.

The rapper was set to perform at Irving Plaza in NYC Wednesday night when the shooting occurred. We're told at least 2 men and 2 women were hit.  A 33-year-old man shot in the stomach didn't make it.

The rapper had not yet taken the stage when the incident went down.  Sources backstage tell us an argument erupted just before one of the opening acts took the stage.  Someone brandished a gun and people backstage scrambled into the crowd as shots rang out.

Cops say at this point it's unclear how many shooters were involved and they don't have any suspects.

Kim and Kanye Threaten Blabbing Bodyguard with $10 Mil Lawsuit

5/26/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0525_kanye_west_kim_kardashian_tmzKim and Kanye have threatened their former blabbermouth bodyguard with a $10 million lawsuit, unless he drops to his knees and apologizes.

We've learned Kim and Kanye's lawyer has fired off a letter to Steve Stanulis ... the bodyguard who went to anyone who would listen, claiming he was fired for chatting up Kim on the job and making Kanye jealous. Kim and Kanye have both said it's a complete lie.

Turns out, we're told that Steve signed a confidentiality agreement promising never to breathe a word about Kim, Kanye or the klan. We're told the lawyer's letter is quick to mention a provision which says Steve is automatically on the hook for $10 mil if he opens his mouth.

It's interesting. We're told Kim and Kanye's lawyer gives Steve an out, if he shuts his trap and issues a public apology to the family. Our sources say the letter does not ask Steve to admit he lied.

Kim and Kanye think Steve's MO is simple ... it's a cheap, underhanded way to get famous. 

BTW ... this isn't the first time Kim and Kanye have gone after someone for violating the confidentiality agreement. TMZ broke the story, YouTube founder Chad Hurley weaseled his way into AT&T Park in SF and videotaped Kanye's marriage proposal. Chad signed a confidentiality agreement and ended up paying them $440,000.

The Game Let Me Teach You About Hustling Weed & Guns in My New App

5/26/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

The Game wants to turn you into a hustling drug kingpin and street soldier -- and he can guarantee you won't get arrested too ... since it's all virtual in his new app "Block Wars."

Sources tell TMZ the rapper teamed with IM3 Gaming Studios to create a gritty mobile game set in Compton. The goal? Conquer one street at a time while competing with rival gangs to sell weed, guns, knives, buildings and cars. All in the name of fueling the economy, of course. 

Game stars as the hood boss in his hometown, but there are plans to expand the game to include an East Coast vs. West Coast war.

Game's game is set to drop sometime this summer and it'll be free. In-app purchases -- for weapons, cars, goons, etc. -- will range from 99 cents to $99.

'The Wonder Years' Star Busted for DUA ... Ambien

5/26/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0524-jason-robert-hervey-mug-shot-01"The Wonder Years" star Jason Hervey just learned the hard way ... never take Ambien before you get behind the wheel. 

Tennessee law enforcement tells TMZ ... they got a call about a swerving pickup truck and were able to locate it. Cops say Hervey was behind the wheel and totally out of it ... slurring, red-eyed and confused. 

Cops say Hervey miserably failed a field sobriety test. They searched the pickup and found a loaded handgun. Hervey was booked for DUI and carrying a weapon while under the influence. 

The incident went down back in January but it went unnoticed, until this past weekend when Hervey served 48 hours behind bars.

Jason, who played Wayne Arnold on the show, tells us he has a prescription for Ambien and stupidly took one before hopping in the truck for a quick errand ... and he's thankful cops got him off the road before anything really bad happened.

Johnny Depp Amber Heard Files for Divorce On Heels of His Mom's Death

5/25/2016 3:27 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0525_JOHNNY_DEPP_Amber-Heard_TMZ-doc-launchupdate_graphic_red_bar4:40 PM PT -- Johnny has filed his response through his lawyer, Laura Wasser. He is asking the judge to reject Amber's claim for spousal support.

And we know what you're thinking ... they have NOT decided what to do with their pooches, Pistol and Boo.

update_grey_gray_barAmber Heard has filed for divorce from Johnny Depp ... shockingly 3 days after Johnny's mom died.

Amber filed her divorce petition Monday, citing irreconcilable differences. The couple married in February of last year, yet Amber is asking for spousal support. 

Our sources say the couple had NO prenup.

It's especially harsh because Johnny was extremely close to his mother. She says in the divorce docs that they separated on May 22 ... 2 days after Johnny's mom passed.

As if that's not enough ... Johnny's new movie, "Alice Through the Looking Glass," opens Friday.

The last time we saw them together was awkward, to say the least -- their video apology for the dog smuggling incident in Australia.

Kenny Rogers Crib Where I Roasted Jordan Now Up for Grabs!!

5/25/2016 4:08 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0525-launch-kenny-roders-galleryIf the walls of Kenny Rogers' old estate could talk, they'd be screaming about the time the Gambler sunk a jump shot on Michael Jordan -- and they'd also say the place is up for auction.

The estate, known as Beaver Dam Farms, features a 12,000 sq. foot mansion on 973 acres outside Athens, GA. It's got 5 separate guest houses, 2 pools, 2 tennis courts and an 18-hole golf course! Unclear if there is an actual island in an actual stream on the premises.

Kenny knew when to fold 'em -- he sold the place back in 2003, but he's helping the current owners promote a July 9 auction ... where the opening bid is an absolute steal at $3.5 million.

Back in the '80s, Kenny held an annual charity event with pro athletes and celebs -- and legendarily faked MJ out of his Jordans. Luckily for Michael, the basketball court's been replaced by an equestrian center.

Chris Cornell Historic Grunge Tapes Returned ... After 25 Years!!

5/25/2016 3:03 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0525_chris-cornell_tmz-2Chris Cornell just got his hands on the mastertapes for his legendary grunge album -- featuring Soundgarden and Pearl Jam members -- and it only took him 25 years to do it.

We're told Cornell and his label, A&M Records, recently settled a bitter, drawn-out lawsuit over the "Temple of the Dog" recordings. Chris and A&M actually got the physical tapes back on Tuesday ... ending the battle with the album's producer, Rick Parashar. 

Parashar had kept the 1991 masters -- which are iconic since the band's one and only self-titled record featured Cornell, Eddie Vedder and future Soundgarden and Pearl Jam members.

When Parashar died his family continued to fight A&M for ownership, but with the settlement ... Cornell finally celebrated with a victory photo.

We're told the label's looking to reissue the album for the 25th anniversary.

0525-sub-Maria-Shriver-splashMaria Shriver was a very satisfied customer after some morning activity with her longtime boyfriend.

Maria and political analyst Matthew Dowd took a stroll around her Brentwood neighborhood, and they both looked very amused.

They could be laughing about the fact she's STILL married to Arnold Schwarzenegger -- nearly FIVE years after she filed to divorce him! As TMZ first reported ... Arnold's dragging his feet on signing the docs, even though they've settled on how to split their assets.

Maria and Matt don't seem worried ... they've been a thing for more than 2 years now.
