Brad Pitt Angelina's UN Ambitions ... UN-Safe For Our Kids!!

9/25/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0923-brad-pitt-angelina-jolie-tmzAngelina Jolie is so obsessed with becoming the head of the United Nations ... it caused major marital issues with Brad Pitt

Sources close to the couple tell us ... Brad became increasingly upset over Angelina's political ambitions ... we're told her dream is to become the top UN official ... she was never specific. Toward that end, we're told she has 2 political advisers and a "war room" to help with decisions and image.

Brad, we're told, was especially upset that Angelina had taken the kids to various war-torn countries, including Lebanon and Iraq. We're told Angelina would always make sure to bring a security team that was the best of the best on her trips ... but for Brad, it still wasn't enough.

We're told things got extremely tense when Brad and Angie argued over taking the kids to Syria to help rebuild the war torn country..

Our sources say Brad was always supportive of Jolie's solo charity work, but travels with the kids became a bone of contention for several years.

Poison Drummer Ex Wants More Cash ... Don't Talk Prenup To Me!!

9/25/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0923-rikki-melanie-rockett-tmz-myspace-01Rikki Rockett's estranged wife claims the Poison drummer completely cut her and their 2 kids off -- and she's demanding he start forking over the cash again.

Rikki filed for divorce from Melanie Rockett last year and claims he's willing to pay exactly what he owes her under their prenup. 

Melanie has fired back it's totally unfair, and as for that prenup ... she says she was pressured to sign the night before their 2008 wedding, claiming Rikki threatened to call it off if she didn't.

Rikki, who's repped by Mark Gross, calls BS, saying Melanie knew well in advance about the prenup and she's just trying to mooch off him because she doesn't want to work.  

She says she can't get a job due to a panoply of health issues ... and she truly needs the money. 

Rikki also says he's paying child support.

A hearing's set for later this month so the judge can hash it all out.

Lindsay Lohan Egor Hit Me And He's Broke!

9/22/2016 9:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0922-lindsay-lohan-egor-tarabasov-gettyLindsay Lohan had to hide her abusive relationship with Egor Tarabasov, and she also paid through the nose to keep them afloat ... at least that's what she claimed on Russian TV. 

During her interview with Russia's Channel One, Lindsay said Egor hit her throughout their relationship ... to the point she had to cover her bruises. 

She also said she supported Egor financially ... even buying her own engagement ring -- which would explain why she's still wearing the emerald since they split. Kinda shocking because Egor is the son of a super wealthy Russian businessman. 

Lindsay went on to say the abuse made her more like her mom, Dina ... who, of course, had a rocky and abusive relationship with Michael Lohan. 

As we first reported, Lindsay was very keen on meeting President Putin while she's in Russia ... and she doubled down on that during the interview, saying ... "I really like him, he is very persistent." Whatever that means. 

Egor's already firing back -- his rep tells us Lindsay's claims are all false, and he'll pursue legal action to clear his name. 

Here's the interview, if you want to check it out ... it's in Russian.

Brad Pitt Get Ready, Angelina I'm Fighting for Joint Custody

9/21/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0920-brad-pitt-angelina-jolie-getty-05Angelina Jolie isn't going to get her way when it comes to custody ... at least if Brad Pitt has anything to say about it, because TMZ has learned he'll fight and fight hard for joint physical custody of their 6 kids.

Sources connected with Brad tell us, Angelina is dreaming if she thinks she can take his kids away from him. We broke the story, Angelina wants sole physical custody of the children ... she wants a judge to give him visitation, but that's it.

Our sources tell us Brad says, "There's no chance that's going to happen." Pitt wants joint custody ... he doesn't want to interfere with Angelina's ability to be a co-parent, but he won't allow her to thwart him.  

This now promises to become the flash point in the divorce and it has the potential to become a fierce legal battle.

That said, our Brad sources say he's quick to add Angelina's a "great mother" and doesn't want to hurt her in the divorce. The sources say Brad and Angelina haven't gotten along for months and have had frank talks about divorce several times, so this wasn't a shock. Nevertheless, he's still devastated.

As we reported, our Angelina sources claim Brad heavily indulges in weed and alcohol and that, combined with what she claims is an anger problem, poses a danger to their kids.

Our Brad sources insist ... he's never put his kids in danger ... ever.

'Modern Family' Creator Steve Levitan Estranged Wife Accuses Him of Threatening WWIII Shut Down by Judge

9/21/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0921_steve_levitan_getty
"Modern Family" creator Steve Levitan has a new idea for a functional modern family ... lose the wife who drags him to court for daring to visit his daughter.

Levitan -- who grosses $2.4 million a month -- is in the throes of a super nasty divorce in which his wife has now twice tried, unsuccessfully, to keep him away from the family home.

The latest blowup occurred the day before the Emmys. Steve invited his daughter, Hannah, to come home from college for the weekend so he could take her to the awards ceremony. Hannah was staying at the family home with her mom, Krista, when Steve drove up to take her for a drink.

Steve says he was on a public sidewalk when Hannah came up to hug him. Krista was out of town, but a burly security guard was ready to pounce. The guard got out of a car, walked up to Steve and said, "Can I help you with something." Steve simply responded, "No."

But Steve was pissed, saying in legal docs he felt like he was being treated like a criminal.

Krista ran to court Tuesday, asking a judge for a restraining order ... keeping him a hundred yards from the family home. She made all sorts of allegations, including aggressive courtroom conduct. She said he tried to intimidate her in the courthouse cafeteria by staring her down.

She also says he assaulted her back in May at their son's volleyball awards ceremony by grabbing her by the arms and saying, "Get ready for World War III."

The judge denied her request for a restraining order. This is the second time Krista's been shut down in court for a restraining order.

Money ... it doesn't buy happiness.

EXCLUSIVE

0920-angelina-jolie-brad-pitt-tmz-04Angelina Jolie has put her kids at risk by calling out Brad Pitt as a bad dad ... so claim sources connected to Brad.

We're told Pitt is "furious" at Angelina for allegedly spinning stories that he poses a risk to their kids because of anger issues fueled by weed and alcohol. Pitt says there's now a bounty on the heads of the entire family, because they've now become a prime target for the gaggle of paparazzi.

We're told the way Brad put it is this ... "She's just unleashed hell." 

0920-brad-angelina-police-house-akm-02The perimeter of their Hollywood Hills home is now blanketed by photogs, and the LAPD is now patrolling at regular intervals.

We're told Brad had conversations with Angelina over the last few days and pleaded for her to handle the divorce "like adults." He wanted to low-key it for the benefit of the kids. Instead, he says, she went scorched earth by asking for sole physical custody and suggesting he's a risky dad.

Brad, we're told, is angry at Angelina and fearful for their kids.
