Jennifer Lopez & Casper Smart Talking Again ... So, You're Telling Me There's a Chance

8/26/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0825_casper_smart_in_nyc_splash-3Casper Smart and Jennifer Lopez are talking again and on friendly terms ... the only difference is J Lo broke up with him and he's in denial.

Casper flew to NYC to be with Lopez, who's there for 4 months shooting her TV show, "Shades of Blue." Sources close to both of them tell TMZ, their relationship is "amicable" and they are still great friends with a lot of affection and history ... but J Lo has made it clear ... they are no longer a couple.

As for Casper, we're told he is not accepting the breakup and is in strong denial. As we reported, the last straw in the relationship was Saturday night, when Casper blew off a big fundraising event in the Hamptons -- an event where J Lo wanted Casper to accompany her -- to attend UFC 202.

Casper thinks it's just another fight, but J Lo is resolute -- the relationship is over.

Amber Heard Calls BS On Johnny's Charity Donation Now You Owe Double

8/25/2016 11:13 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0825-heard-depp-tmz-getty-02Amber Heard has just fired back at Johnny Depp, saying if he really cares about donating Amber's divorce settlement he'll ante up $14 million, not $7 mil ... and in fact she's insisting on that.

Amber's team tells TMZ, Johnny is not being up-front about his latest move ... giving Children's Hospital of L.A. and the ACLU the $7 million earmarked for Amber.   

Amber said last week she would donate the settlement money to the 2 charities, but her people tell us if Johnny sends the money directly to the 2 organizations he's not really paying $7 mil, because he gets a charitable tax deduction.   

And we're told Amber's position is that the money is not Johnny's to give away.

Amber's people tell TMZ, "If Johnny wishes to change the settlement agreement, we must insist that he honor the full amount by donating $14M to charity, which after accounting for his tax deduction, is equal to his $7M payment obligation to Amber."

The team goes on ... "We would also insist that the full amount be paid immediately and not drawn out over many years."

They blast Johnny's team, saying, "Anything less would be a transparent attempt by Johnny's counsel, Laura Wasser and Patti Glaser, to reduce their client's true payment by half under the guise of newfound concern for charities that he has never previously supported."

Contrary to that ... Johnny's team tells us he was honored by the Children's Hospital of L.A. in 2006 for his work with children worldwide. 

J Lo/Casper Breakup And You Thought UFC 202 Was a Big Fight ...

EXCLUSIVE

0824_jennifer_lopez_casper-smart-tmzJennifer Lopez broke up with Casper Smart because he snubbed her by passing on a fancy Hamptons charity event in favor of hanging with his boyz at UFC 202 ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected with the former couple tell us ... J Lo told Casper it was super important for him to accompany her to Ron Perelman's Hamptons fundraiser Saturday night benefiting the Apollo Theater. 

Casper wasn't having it, because he desperately wanted to watch the Conor McGregor/Nate Diaz fight in Vegas with his friends.

0824_Casper_smart_bruce_buffer_kanye_tweetCasper had a great time in Vegas, hanging with Kanye and UFC announcer Bruce Buffer.

J Lo, we're told, was enraged and ended the relationship ... no discussion -- simply, we're done.

Here's the funny thing ... Casper was telling people at the fight he was going to NYC Sunday to meet up with Jennifer, who was there filming a show. He had no idea being a no-show Saturday would end things.

0824_jennifer_lopez_saturady_getty_subOur sources add this ... J Lo and Casper have "broken up" several times before and gotten back together, and they say they would not be surprised at all if it happens again.

J Lo doesn't look like she's too broken up about it at the moment, though ... she was still in New York this morning looking perky as ever.

Johnny Depp I'll Honor Amber's Charity Pledge and Send the Checks

8/25/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0824_johnny_depp_amber_heard_tmzJohnny Depp is heaping praise on Amber Heard for promising to donate her $7 million divorce settlement to charity ... and he's so moved he's sending the checks directly to the 2 organizations she personally picked.

Amber announced after striking her settlement she would donate every penny to the ACLU and Children's Hospital of Los Angeles -- $3.5 mil each. We checked with Children's Hospital Tuesday and they had not yet received any of the money.

We've learned both the ACLU and Children's Hospital got checks Wednesday from Johnny, on behalf of Amber. The checks are the first in a number of installments that will eventually total $7 million.

A rep for Johnny tells TMZ, "Following Amber Heard's announcement that her divorce settlement was to be divided equally and gifted to Children's Hospital of Los Angeles and the American Civil Liberties Union, two exceptionally deserving and important charities, Johnny Depp has sent the first of multiple installments of those monies to each charity in the name of Amber Heard, which when completed will honor the full amount of Ms. Heard's pledge."

The rep adds, "Ms. Heard's generosity in giving to these wonderful causes is deeply respected."

Everybody happy now?

Frances Bean Cobain Hubby Wants FAT Allowance You Left Me Broke!

8/25/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0824_frances_cobain_Isaiah-Silva_gettyFrances Bean Cobain's estranged husband says he won't have a penny to his name without her ... so he's asking a judge to make her pay up.

Isaiah Silva is requesting spousal support, and according to the docs he wants a ton of it -- nothing less than $25k a month.

Isaiah says he left a steady job when they got married and Frances promised to cover a bunch of his monthly expenses, including paying private school and housing bills for his child from a previous relationship.

Now, he says Frances wants to renege on those commitments. Isaiah claims Frances has upwards of $100 mil in her dad's estate, and says he deserves half of the money she earned off business deals made during the 2 year marriage. He says there's no prenup.

Frances made it clear in her divorce docs ... the Kurt Cobain money is hers alone and not Isaiah's -- but she is open to paying some spousal support.

Keshia Knight Pulliam's Husband Georgia Fire Sale Days After Filing for Divorce

8/24/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0823-keshia-pulliam-ed-hartwell-Instagram-Getty-01Ed Hartwell curiously unloaded his Georgia mansion for an enormous loss just two days after blindsiding Keshia Knight Pulliam with divorce papers.

We've learned Hartwell sold the 6 bedroom, 8,000 square foot home for $690k ... he'd had it on and off the market since 2012 before finally selling late last month. Ed originally bought the house for $1.268 mil in 2005 ... so he lost around $580k on the property.

The timing of the sale is interesting ... Ed owned the home well before he and Keshia got married, so it's his property regardless. As for why the fire sale ... no one's talking, but you gotta wonder if he's bracing for lots of legal expenses. 

As TMZ reported -- the two are currently locked in a bitter court battle ... which includes nasty paternity issues and claims of emotional abuse.

Diddy & Cassie Cops Called After Breakup Argument

8/19/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0818-diddy-cassie-tmzDiddy and Cassie have called it quits following an explosive argument that ended with cops rushing to her home ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to the couple tell TMZ ... they got into a heated argument in a car Wednesday afternoon after Cassie told Diddy she wanted to break up. We're told Diddy got pissed off and suspicious enough to grab her phone and start scrolling through.

Our sources say Diddy jumped out of the car in Bev Hills -- phone in hand -- and she took off with the driver.

Diddy eventually came home and returned the phone, but then took 2 cars parked outside.

Cassie had told her mom about the phone incident before Diddy came home and returned it, and the mom called the cops on him. Cops ended up at Cassie's home and she explained she got the phone back so they left, but not before writing up a domestic incident report. However, we're told no crime was committed. 

As for the breakup, we're told they've done it before -- Justin and Selena style -- so who knows?

Robert Griffin III 'No Way Wife Was Blindsided' ... QB's Friends Say

8/19/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0818_robert_giffin_Rebecca-Liddicoat_gettyRobert Griffin III is telling friends ... his wife was NOT blindsided by his decision to pursue a divorce -- insisting their marriage has been on the rocks for two years.

But it begs the question ... why would the couple then buy a house TOGETHER in April? 

As we previously reported RG3's wife, Rebecca Liddicoat, was devastated over a Cleveland.com report that Griffin was in the process of filing for divorce ... and has told people she was "blindsided."

But our RG3 sources are saying BS.

One source extremely close to the QB tells us, "They have been working on their marriage for the past 2 years. Things didn't get better. They have been separated since January."

"Robert decided to separate while pursuing a divorce, she was not blindsided by his decision to go through with the divorce at this time."

"All he cares about is being a great father to his daughter moving forward."

But TMZ Sports has learned ... Robert and Rebecca bought a house together in April. And according to the deed, filed on April 14th with the recorder's office, it includes BOTH of their names.

Our RG3 sources say he bought the house for HIMSELF only -- and there was no intent to live together.

But that begs question ... why would Rebecca go in on a house with her rich soon-to-be ex if she wasn't planning on living in it?

Amber Heard My $7 Mil Settlement Is Fighting Violence Against Women

8/18/2016 3:08 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0818_amber_heard_tmzAmber Heard is giving ALL of her Johnny Depp divorce settlement money to 2 charities.

Amber confirmed what TMZ first reported ... the settlement amount is $7 million, and she tells us, "The donation will be divided equally between the ACLU, with a particular focus to stop violence against women, and the Children's Hospital of Los Angeles, where I have worked as a volunteer for the past 10 years."

Amber's also reiterating what she and Johnny said in their joint statement -- that the divorce wasn't about financial gain. She says, "Money played no role for me personally and never has, except to the extent that I could donate it to charity and, in doing so, hopefully help those less able to defend themselves." 

Amber says she forfeited all residuals Johnny earned from movie deals he made during their 15-month marriage ... which she'd be entitled to because there was no prenup. 

A rep for Children's Hospital thanked Heard and said, "her generosity will support the lifesaving treatments and cures that CHLA provides for critically ill children each year." 

Amber added, "Hopefully this experience results in a positive change in the lives of people who need it the most."

EXCLUSIVE

0816_rg3_Rebecca-Liddicoat_Grete-Sadeiko_tmz_instagram_gettyRobert Griffin III and his wife have been separated for months -- after she found out he was dating a new woman ... and sources connected to the situation tell us she's absolutely devastated.

Sources close to the estranged couple tell us RG3 first met Florida State track star Grete Sadeiko through Instagram back in January ... roughly 7 months after his wife, Rebecca Liddicoat, gave birth to their daughter.

We're told the social media relationship turned real ... and when Rebecca found out about her in April, she was pissed.

The two separated shortly after. They haven't lived together in months. 

But get this ... one solid source tells us Rebecca was still working on trying to save the marriage as recently as this week ... and was blindsided on Tuesday by news that RG3 is "in the process of filing for divorce."

Now, with RG3 getting Grete's name tattooed on his arm, we're told Rebecca has given up on a possible reconciliation.

Bottom line ... this was no amicable split.

She included an emoji of a dog (Browns reference) and a football.
