Kim Richards

Shoplifting Bust at Target

8/3/2015 9:56 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0513-kim-richards-tmz-4

Kim Richards spent the night in jail after getting arrested for shoplifting Sunday night ... TMZ has confirmed.

The former 'Real Housewife' was booked into jail around 7:30 PM after store security called LAPD to a Target in the Valley. Law enforcement tells us a security guard nabbed her for allegedly scooping up a "bunch of items" worth more than $600.

Richards got out of the pokey on Monday afternoon. Her bail was $5,000. It's unclear if she was under the influence at the time of this latest arrest. She was also busted in April for allegedly making a drunken scene at the Beverly Hills hotel.

That arrested led to a rehab stint that just ended a few weeks ago.

As TMZ first reported, Kim's kinda on her own now ... since sister Kyle Richards and her husband are trying the tough love route after Kim went on a bender at her daughter's wedding.

Bleeding Me Dry

5 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0803-50-cent-tmz-0150 Cent's financial woes are coming into focus ... because new financial docs show G-Unit Records and G-Unit Brands have cost 50 more than $10 million over the last three years. 

According to new documents filed as part of 50's bankruptcy, the two branches of G-Unit have been in the red each of the last three years -- $10.45 million in losses. The silver lining ... they've done better this year ... they're still losing dough, but not as much.

The documents reveal a few other 50 financial tidbits. 50 is currently paying child support to Daphne Joy for their young son, Sire ... and the docs say by the time the kid hits 18 ... he'll have paid out $832,600.

50 says he has more than $15 million in personal property, which does not include houses. And get this ... he has $2.7 million in his checking account.

50's monthly expenses include $5,000/month for gardening, $1,500 for pool maintenance and $9,000/month for security.

EXCLUSIVE

0803_jesse_metcalfe_new_home_main_launchJesse Metcalfe is still channeling his "Dallas" character Chris Ewing with his recent big purchase – a $2.975 million crib above the Sunset Strip.

The show was canceled last fall after 3 seasons, but Metcalfe's making good use of his hard-earned cash. He purchased the 4 bedroom, 5 bath home in the celeb-favored Birds Streets neighborhood for $175,000 under asking price.

His girlfriend, actress Cara Santana, is also on the deed ... they've been dating for 5 years, so there's plenty of room to settle down and start a family.

There’s also a pool, spa and fire pit, chef’s kitchen inside and another outdoor kitchen too … so yeah, party at Jesse’s house ... until further notice.

All the Fashion

0803_drake_meek_shirt_instagramDrake was sporting a FREE MEEK MILL t-shirt in Toronto, reportedly just hours before getting on stage for his OVO Fest -- and the Internet is losing its collective mind. 

Photos and vids of Drizzy taking the fashion shot during what looks like a rehearsal .... have everyone wondering if he'll take the next step -- wear it on stage when he headlines tonight.

Drake wore the same shirt last summer to show love to Meek, who was locked up at the time.

You could argue ... Meek's worse off today

Gwen Stefani

Files for Divorce

From Gavin Rossdale

8/3/2015 4:19 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0803_gwen_stefani_gavin_rossdale_TMZ_2Gwen Stefani has filed for divorce from her husband Gavin Rossdale, TMZ has learned.

Gwen cites irreconcilable differences in her divorce petition, which seeks to end their 13-year-marriage.

Gwen, who's repped by attorney Scott Weston, is asking for joint custody of the couple's 3 kids -- 9-year-old Kingston, 6-year-old Zuma and 1-year-old Apollo.

Gavin, who's repped by disso-queen Laura Wasser, filed his response at the same time, and he's also asking for joint custody. It's clear the petition and response were orchestrated to be filed simultaneously.

Sources tell TMZ there is no prenup, so the 50/50 California community property laws kick in. 45-year-old Gwen is worth a reported $80 million, and 49-year-old Gavin's worth an estimated $35 million. Given the length of the marriage, that will probably all go into one pot before it's divided.

Gwen checked the box on the form to deny Gavin spousal support.  

In a joint statement they said, "While the two of us have come to the mutual decision that we will no longer be partners in marriage, we remain partners in parenthood and are committed to jointly raising our three sons in a happy and healthy environment."

Will Smith says the stories he's getting a divorce are BS.

Will just posted on Facebook, "I don't usually respond to foolishness," explaining that by doing so it becomes contagious.

But he decided to join in the foolishness, and said, "In the interest of redundant, repetitious, over & over again-ness ... Jada and I are NOT GETTING A DIVORCE!!!!!!!!!!:-)"

And he added this ... "I promise you all - if I ever decide to divorce my Queen - I SWEAR I'll tell you myself!"

He ended with "#Dumb People Should Have to Wear Scarlet D's."

Jada then tweeted, "My king has spoken."

Fighting Back Against Bad Parenting Claims ...

I'm a Good Father!

EXCLUSIVE

0802-chris-brown-nia-guzman-TMZ-INSTAGRAM-01

Chris Brown believes he's an exceptional father to his daughter Royalty and plans to fight his baby mama's attempt to limit his custody to just supervised visits. 

According to our sources, Brown plans to file an opposition to Nia Guzman's request for full custody ... countering her claims that he's a bad father. Guzman has cited several issues with Chris' parenting and lifestyle, but we're told he has a comeback for each one.

First off, we're told Chris will argue he never puts his daughter in harm's way and has increased security at his home since the recent break-in.

Secondly, our sources says Chris will say he has never done drugs around Royalty.

Lastly, we're told Chris will argue he has never allowed "gang bangers" to be around his daughter.

Chris has filed his own docs to establish paternity so he can fight for joint custody, but so far a judge has not ruled.

EXCLUSIVE

0803-bobbi-kristina-instagramA photo of Bobbi Kristina's body, lying in her casket, has been sold to a media outlet ... and TMZ has learned the bidding soared into the six figures. 

According to our sources, someone snapped a pic of BK during the viewing, which took place the day before the funeral. We're told the winning offer topped the $100,000 mark.
