Jesse Williams Seeks Joint Custody of Kids in Divorce

4/24/2017 4:37 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jesse Williams isn't looking for a fight over child custody in his divorce ... according to docs.

TMZ obtained the divorce petition filed by the "Grey's Anatomy" star on April 11, and he is requesting joint physical and legal custody of their 3-year-old and 1-year-old kids.

Jesse and Aryn Drakelee-Williams got married in 2012. The docs do not list a date of separation.

As for spousal support -- Jesse checked the box asking the court to deny her spousal support. That sometimes means the couple has a prenup ... but we're told that's not the case for Jesse and Aryn.

Scott Baio on Erin Moran I Wouldn't Have Raised Drug Issues If I Knew About the Cancer

4/25/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Scott Baio feels terrible for ripping his co-star, Erin Moran, for her drug use and says he never would have done it if he'd known she was battling cancer.

Scott tells TMZ he was wrong to insinuate Erin -- his "Happy Days" and "Joanie Loves Chachi" co-star -- had died from drug-related problems. He went pretty hard on her during a radio interview Monday morning.

He tells us he went to bed Sunday reading reports she'd possibly died of a heroin overdose, and went into the interview with that in mind. He was upset he'd lost Erin to drugs after she wrestled with substance abuse for years.

However, hours after he went off the air ... officials in Indiana announced Erin had likely died from complications of stage 4 cancer. Scott says if he had known, he would've kept his mouth shut.

He tells us Erin never disclosed her diagnosis to him -- even after his wife, Renee, spoke to her just last month. He adds ... Renee has battled cancer herself several times, so losing Erin this way hits close to home.

Talib Kweli America Wanted Payback for 'N**** President' ... That's Why Trump Won

4/25/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Talib Kweli thinks Donald Trump's rise to the White House was powered by America's desire for revenge after Barack Obama was elected the first African-American president.

Talib was brutally honest at LAX Monday ... about President Trump's first 100 days in office, and his belief the bar is set incredibly low for white Commanders in Chief. He also referred to Obama as the n-word president, so ... there's that.  

Check out the rant -- Talib does say there's a way for Trump to turn things around, but his demands are lengthy. 

Ellie Goulding Rides Ex in Midair For 'Magic Mike Live'

4/25/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ellie Goulding ran into her ex bf during his gig in "Magic Mike Live," and decided to take him for a ride ... suspended above the stage.

Ellie was sitting front row Saturday at the new Las Vegas revue when her ex, Jackson Williams, pulled her onstage for one of his airborne stunts. You can probably figure it out from the video, but the stunt is called the "air f***."

Sources at the show tell us a bachelorette is supposed to be called up for the segment, but Jackson called an audible and chose Ellie instead. She didn't seem to mind catching up with her former backup dancer turned bf.

We're guessing Ellie felt safe with a guy who's been trained by Channing Tatum himself.

Marriott Hotels Robin Hood Confesses to Cyber Attack Public Made Out On My Revenge Plot

4/24/2017 5:27 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The Marriott Hotels 'Robin Hood' now admits he slashed his ex-employers' hotel rates -- to the delight of customers -- purely to get revenge for being unfairly fired ... he claims.

Juan Rodriguez tells TMZ he was happy to help consumers get cheap rates -- some as low as $10 per night -- but he was even happier to screw the assistant general manager who fired him for disappearing from his post at a Fairfield Inn & Suites for 90 minutes.

He claims other employees at the hotel told him the asst. GM was going to make up a story about Rodriguez renting rooms under the table, so he wouldn't be able to collect unemployment.

Rodriguez says that's when he hatched his plan to strike first. He says he connected remotely to Marriott's booking network with a company password that was still active -- and started slashing rates ... knowing his old bosses would have to fix it manually.

"I actually wanted them to work. I also wanted to teach them not to keep your password out there."

As we reported, Rodriguez was busted earlier this month and charged with computer tampering and computer trespass. He says he's confessed to cops, and his attorney is trying to get the charges reduced.

Chile Earthquake Little Hot Dog Runs for Life

4/24/2017 4:14 PM PDT
Breaking News

The moment a massive earthquake struck off the coast of Chile Monday an adorable little dog sprang into action ... running for his life.

The harrowing moment was captured on video by a guy in Valparaiso, Chile -- the 7.1 magnitude quake struck 22 miles off the coast of the port city. He was outside on his deck when the shaking hit and the pup, looks like a dachshund, started barking and sprinting.

The dog eventually makes it into the apartment and finds its owners. There are no immediate reports of damage or serious injuries.

They say dogs can supposedly sense when earthquakes are coming, so maybe the little guy was trying to warn everyone.

Stephen Belafonte Gets Visitation with His Daughter No Contact with Eddie Murphy's

Breaking News

Stephen Belafonte will get to see the daughter he had with Mel B, but under very strict terms laid out by a judge.

Belafonte and his attorneys were in court Monday trying to get unmonitored visitation with 5-year-old Madison. Mel B's restraining order requires him to stay away from her and all of her children.

The judge ruled he can see Madison, but it will be with a court monitor present -- and will take place in a pre-determined counseling center in Los Angeles. Belafonte must attend alone for the 4 hour visits, twice a week.

Belafonte lost his effort to regain contact with Angel -- Mel's daughter with Eddie Murphy, who was born right before Mel and Stephen got married. 

Aaron Hernandez Prison Cell Letters NOT for Gay Lover ... Attorney Insists

4/24/2017 2:37 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Letters were found inside Aaron Hernandez's cell when his body was found, but none of them were written to a gay lover.

Hernandez's lawyer, Jose Baez, tells TMZ Sports, "Rumors of letters to a gay lover, in or out of prison, are false. These are malicious leaks used to tarnish somebody who is dead."

The D.A. announced Thursday 3 letters were next to Hernandez's Bible, and that's when the rumors began.

Baez said he is not prepared to say whether Hernandez's death was suicide or foul play. He says, "There is still plenty we are investigating."

Mel B's Ex-Nanny I'm No Homewrecker ... Pics Prove Mel and I Were Girlfriends

4/24/2017 2:10 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Mel B's ex-nanny has dozens of photos to back her claim she wasn't just the hired help, and the singer seduced her into three-way sex with Stephen Belafonte.

We broke the story ... Lorraine Gilles filed a defamation lawsuit against Mel for saying Gilles got knocked up by Belafonte. Gilles insists Mel was totally in on and aware of the sexual escapades with Belafonte.

As part of her lawsuit, she submitted more than a couple dozen shots she says were taken during her 7 year relationship with Mel and Stephen. The pics certainly make it seem like she was tighter with the couple than your average nanny.

Then again, it's clearly much happier times. As we told you ... Mel admits they had three-ways, but insists Gilles and Belafonte had sex separately from her, and without her knowledge.

A-Rod Only Has Eyes For J Lo

4/24/2017 1:47 PM PDT

Yes, J Lo ... A-Rod is just that into you, and the poor guy couldn't even hide it Monday afternoon as the two grabbed lunch in New York City.

The couple had a fancy meal at The Sea Grill, which is just above the Rockefeller Center ice rink. Plenty of city sights to see outside, but Alex was transfixed by his date.

Be honest ... ya kind of want someone to look at you the way he's looking at Jennifer.

Smitten would be a gross understatement.
