Paris Hilton Transcontinental Distance Caused Breakup with Swiss BF

4/26/2016 10:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0426-paris-hilton-tom-gross-tmz-instagram-01Paris Hilton struggled with life in the luxurious Swiss Alps, and that's the main factor in her breakup with boyfriend Thomas Gross.

Sources close to Paris tell TMZ she and the Swiss multimillionaire called things off over a month ago. The main problem is they both have their own empires running in different countries. Thomas' work is in Switzerland, while Paris' fashion and DJ work has her between L.A. and Ibiza.

Paris was also unhappy being away from her sister and mom. We're told although she had carte blanche to Gross' private jet and first class commercial flights ... the 12-hour flight between L.A. and Switzerland proved too much over time.

Paris made the round trip several times a month, staying in Cali for a few days each time.

Another factor -- we're told she really missed her dogs, which remained in L.A. during the year she and Thomas dated. 

Gwen Stefani Gets Off Easy in Divorce ... Thanks to Gavin

4/14/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0413-stefani-rossdale-tmz-tear-02Gwen Stefani got a BIG break in her divorce, thanks to Gavin Rossdale, because we've learned he's now on record with the judge walking away from millions of dollars to which he's legally entitled.

Gwen and Gavin have struck a settlement which was just filed with the court. Sources connected with the couple tell us Gavin has agreed to a lopsided split of property in favor of Gwen.

TMZ broke the story, the couple -- married for 13 years -- did not have a prenup, so under the laws of California Gavin was entitled to 50% of everything acquired during the marriage. Our sources say Gavin did not press to get a big chunk of the money Gwen made from concert and record sales.

We've also learned the couple agreed to a 50/50 joint custody arrangement, although Gavin will end up with more than 50% custody of their 3 kids because of Gwen's touring schedule.

And we've learned, Gavin is not asking for child support, even though he could have pushed for it and Gwen -- who has significantly more money and earning capacity -- would have been on the hook.  

All that's left is for the judge to sign off on the settlement, which is just a formality.

041116-cat-jennifer-cora-getty'Iron Chef' star Cat Cora was stabbed in the back by her estranged wife, who intentionally ignored PR 101 -- let the celebrity file for divorce against the nobody.  

According to documents filed in the divorce between Cat and Jennifer Cora, Cat's lawyer fired off an angry letter to Jennifer's mouthpiece, claiming they had a deal -- Cat would file the divorce petition for "public relations" reasons. Translation ... make it clear Cat was leaving Jennifer. 

According to the letter, when Cat was flying somewhere, Jennifer backstabbed her and had her lawyer file for divorce. Cat's lawyer says Jennifer clearly did this out of spite. 

The letter, written last October right after the petition was filed, was just included in the court file but makes it clear how nasty this divorce got.  

Cat's lawyer also accused Jennifer of trash-talking Cat to their kids' school and to mutual friends.

It hasn't gotten better ... Cat wants Jennifer to submit to a vocational analysis ... in other words, she needs to get a job.

'RHOA' Cynthia Bailey Separated from Peter ... Living Miles Apart

3/25/2016 4:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0325-cynthia-bailey-peter-thomas-TMZ-01Cynthia Bailey and Peter Thomas' marriage has been torn apart by 'RHOA' ... at least that's how Peter sees it, now that he's moved out of their Atlanta home.

TMZ has learned the 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' stars are now living in separate states -- CB's in their ATL home, while Peter's in their Charlotte crib.

We're told it's been this way for months, because Peter decided he doesn't want to do 'Housewives' anymore. He thinks the show drama -- which has focused on their marital issues -- is making it too hard to patch things up when cameras are off.

Despite promos for the upcoming reunion that mention cheating rumors ... we're told Cynthia doesn't think Peter's stepping out on her. No one's filed separation or divorce docs yet, but we're told it's just a matter of time.

3/18/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0317_Afeni-Shakur_tupac_getty-3Tupac Shakur's mom is getting divorced, TMZ has learned, and her husband wants half of that Tupac money.

Afeni Shakur filed for divorce against Gust Davis, her husband of 12 years. For some reason we're told the couple doesn't have a prenup.

Afeni filed in North Carolina, where judges are not required to divide property 50/50, but rather on a case-by-case basis to determine what's fair. They have lots of property and he wants, among other things, the right to live on their 50 acre North Carolina ranch and wants the keys to the houseboats. Gust, who's a minister, also wants to keep his sweet Jag.

Gust also wants alimony. We're told the Tupac Estate rakes in around $900k a year, but according to Gust, after expenses Afeni gets around $20k a month. We're told he wants $10k a month for the rest of his life. 

As for Afeni, she's been separated from Gust for a little more than a year. She's currently living on a houseboat in Sausalito, CA.     

Afeni has filed legal docs asking the judge to shut down Gust's alimony request.

Wife of 'Biggest Loser' Dr. He Got a New Young Thing ... I Got a Tumor

3/17/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0316-dr-h-wanda-getty-01Ex-'Biggest Loser' doctor Robert Huizenga has a big problem with his ex-wife ... who says she's cash strapped and fighting illness, while he's off living the life with his 34-year-old P.Y.T.  

Wanda Huizenga says she and the Dr. were happily married for 33 years -- plus 3 not-so-happy years -- and during that time she quit working and became a full-time mother and housewife. They split up in 2012, but since then ... Wanda says she's fallen on hard times. She's battling COPD and has a brain tumor.

On the other hand ... Wanda says Robert, who is currently Charlie Sheen's physician, is having the time of his life. In legal docs she describes his health as, "Excellent. Runs 8 miles a day. Young 34-year-old to keep him happy."

Dr. H. is currently paying her $10k per month, but Wanda says that's not cutting it ... especially with her medical bills. She says her ex is not "being fair or generous" and she's hurt beyond belief.

In addition to increased support, she wants the doctor to cover her mounting legal fees.

Kristin Cavallari Jay Cutler Never Dumped Me ... It's All BS

3/16/2016 9:59 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

Kristin Cavallari says reports that Jay Cutler was the one who called off their engagement in 2011 are JUST WRONG -- insinuating SHE was the one who dumped him. 

The breakup was big news back then ... especially since they announced the split RIGHT AFTER Kristin did a wedding dress photo shoot to publicize the wedding. People thought Jay was pretty cold-hearted.

But now, 5 years later, Kristin is saying everyone (including People, which reported she got dumped) was wrong ... and she went on "Wake Up With Taylor" on SiriusXM to tell her side of the split. 

"All the tabloids said that Jay broke up with me, called off the engagement ... and I was like, what the f**k? That's not true! But I didn't say anything 'cause I didn't think it was anybody's business."

Of course, they ended up getting back together a few months later anyway and getting married ... and having a bunch of kids. 

But the question is ... are you buying KC's new story?
