Johnny Depp's Ex-Wife He Isn't A Woman Beater

5/28/2016 12:31 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0527-johnny-depp-lori-anne-allison-TMZ-REXUSA-01Johnny Depp would never lay a hand on a woman and isn't capable of hurting anyone ... so says Johnny's first wife, Lori Anne Allison.

Lori, who was married to Johnny from 1983 to 1985, tells friends she doesn't believe Amber Heard's claim that Johnny brutalized her multiple times during their short marriage.

Lori's saying Johnny never got physical with her during their relationship ... he never even screamed.

She calls him a "soft person" who is even kind to animals. Lori and Johnny had a dog during their marriage and he was more loving with the pooch than most parents are to their kids. 

Lori and Johnny are still friends and spoke as recently as last week when she called to offer her condolences over his mother's death.

TMZ broke the story ... Amber claims Johnny went on a violent tirade while high and drunk last weekend and smashed an iPhone on her face.

Johnny Depp Coke and Booze Fueled Recent Violence ... Amber Claims

5/28/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0527_johnny_depp_tmzJohnny Depp may have a credibility problem if Amber Heard's violence claims make their way to court ... because if she's right, his memory of events will be highly questionable, thanks to coke and liquor.

Sources connected to Amber tell us she's outraged Johnny is calling her a liar over the domestic violence allegations ... because he's almost always high.  

Amber claims Johnny was "barely ever sober" during the 15 months they were married. She says he was perpetually high, except when he was shooting a movie, when he hired a chef and a trainer and got sober. Once the movie wrapped, it was back to drugs and alcohol. 

Amber claimed in her legal docs he is "often paranoid and his temper is exceptionally scary for me." She goes on ... "Johnny's paranoia, delusions and aggression increased throughout our relationship. So has my awareness of his continued substance abuse."

She claims on both occasions where she has accused him of domestic violence, he was "inebriated and high." 

Amber got a temporary restraining order Friday ... requiring Johnny to stay 100 yards clear of her. Johnny denies her claim that he inflicted any violence upon her. The order was precautionary, and the judge will conduct a full hearing next month to determine who is telling the truth and who is lying.

Ex-WWE star Rob Van Dam Wife Files for Divorce But We Don't Hate Each Other

5/27/2016 4:11 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0527-rob-van-dam-sonya-van-dam-wife-divorce-split-TMZ-GETTY-02Rob Van Dam's wife is tapping out of their marriage -- filing divorce docs to end their 17-year union and asking the judge to restore her old name, TMZ Sports has learned. 

Sonya Szatkowski filed court docs in L.A. citing irreconcilable differences. The two married in 1998 but Sonya claims they separated back in December. They have no minor children. 

Sonya is asking for spousal support and says Rob should have to pay her attorney's fees. She's also asking the judge to restore her name from Szatkowski to Delbeck. 

We spoke with Sonya who tells us the two are still on relatively good terms -- they're still talking -- but she just decided the marriage wasn't working anymore. 

She added, "It’s a private time. It’s a hard thing for me to even talk about."

It's especially sad considering Rob and Sonya's love story was pretty well known -- Sonya often traveled with RVD during his wrestling career so she could be ringside for his matches. 

Johnny Depp, Amber Heard A Dog House Divided

EXCLUSIVE

0527_amber_johnny_boo_pistol_splash-2

We've solved the Johnny Depp/Amber Heard dog mystery.

We now know each owned one dog, which is why the judge only referenced Amber's dog in Friday's court order. 

You'll recall the pooches made headlines a year ago when they smuggled the two Yorkies into Australia. Amber could have gone to prison, but ended up doing a PSA on why smuggling is a bad idea and they got off scot-free.

Turns out it was a blended family. Amber owns Pistol and Johnny owns Boo. When Amber went to court asking for her domestic violence restraining order -- which she got -- she also asked for an order requiring Johnny to stay clear of Pistol. The judge declined, saying Pistol was in no real danger.

We're told Amber is in possession of both dogs because Johnny's out of town, but she'll happily give him Boo when he returns.

Khloe Kardashian Trigger for Divorce ... She Wants Kids

5/27/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0526-khloe-lamar-tmz-02Khloe Kardashian told Lamar Odom she needed to end their marriage once and for all ... because the clock is ticking and she wants kids ... sources connected to the former couple tell TMZ.

Our sources say Khloe sat Lamar down recently and explained she wanted a family, and couldn't even start the process of looking until she was single again.

We're told Khloe made it clear to Lamar from the time he almost died last year ... she was dropping the divorce because she wanted to help him get better. She vowed not to re-file until he was able to run his own life day-to-day, and she believes he's at that point right now.

Khloe has made it clear to friends and family ... there has never been a romantic relationship since she filed for divorce the first time around in December 2013

Lamar, we're told, completely understood, and the 2 vow to remain friends, and Khloe has promised she'll help him whenever he needs it.

Gwyneth Paltrow, Chris Martin Divorce a Done Deal

5/26/2016 10:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0526-gwyneth-paltrow-chris-martin-TMZ-01Gwyneth Paltrow has just filed legal docs, asking a judge to officially end her marriage to Chris Martin ... but we know the docs aren't what they seem.

Gwyneth has asked the judge to enter a default judgment, because Chris never responded to her divorce petition. On the surface it sounds like Chris isn't playing ball, but we know it's the exact opposite.

As we reported, the former couple's business manager has been working out a property settlement, and Chris never responded to the divorce petition because he and Gwyneth didn't want lots of stories written each time documents were filed.

We're told the property settlement is now complete, and they agreed long ago to joint custody of their kids.

So the judge will enter the default and the property settlement will almost certainly remain confidential.

Mission accomplished.

Ariana Grande Hot Guy from 'Into You' Music Video ... I'm No Big Sean!

5/26/2016 9:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Ariana Grande fans can kill all the buzz her new music video, "Into You," is about Big Sean ... so says the smoking hot guy who played her love interest.

We got former "America's Next Top Model" star Don Benjamin at LAX Wednesday and asked him about all the comparisons fans have been making between Sean and him.

Many believe the video is about their breakup, especially since Ariana started dating her backup dancer, Ricky, after ending things with Sean.

Don has a different theory -- but keep in mind, Don still seems a little hypnotized by making out with Ariana in the video. Not that we blame him. 

Johnny Depp Divorce His Family 'Hated' Amber

5/26/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0525-johnny-depp-amber-heard-tmz-03Johnny Depp and Amber Heard's relationship was extremely bitter due to a full-blown feud between his family and Amber ... and this, we're told, is the backdrop for what is already an acrimonious divorce.

Multiple sources connected to the ex-couple tell us, Johnny's 2 teenage kids, his 2 sisters and his mom "hated" Amber, and openly discussed it.  We're told they talked about how Amber would rail on Johnny and "treat him like crap."

Earlier this year, Johnny moved his mother, Betty Sue Palmer, into the L.A. compound where he and Amber lived ... and the tension was palpable. We're told mom often told friends she thought Amber was using Johnny for his money and fame, and to boost her own career.

We're also told before Betty Sue moved in, she only saw her son once from the time he married Amber, and both Betty Sue and Johnny blame her for keeping them apart so she'd have full control.  

Our sources say Amber had 2 closed door sit-downs with Johnny's mom after she moved in, and after both meetings Betty Sue railed on her daughter-in-law, calling her a "terrible person."

We broke the story ... Amber filed for divorce Monday ... 3 days after Betty Sue died. There was no prenup, and Amber wants spousal support.

Kylie Jenner I Still Got A Hand On Tyga

0526-kylie-jenner-ferrari-splash-01Kylie Jenner is blue after her breakup with Tyga ... and the blue looks fabulous on the Ferrari he gave her before she dumped him.

Kylie zipped through L.A. Wednesday in the $260k whip Tyga gifted her on her 18th birthday. It's had a couple of paint jobs ... she got it white, but, ya know.

Johnny Depp Amber Heard Files for Divorce On Heels of His Mom's Death

5/25/2016 3:27 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0525_JOHNNY_DEPP_Amber-Heard_TMZ-doc-launchupdate_graphic_red_bar4:40 PM PT -- Johnny has filed his response through his lawyer, Laura Wasser. He is asking the judge to reject Amber's claim for spousal support.

And we know what you're thinking ... they have NOT decided what to do with their pooches, Pistol and Boo.

update_grey_gray_barAmber Heard has filed for divorce from Johnny Depp ... shockingly 3 days after Johnny's mom died.

Amber filed her divorce petition Monday, citing irreconcilable differences. The couple married in February of last year, yet Amber is asking for spousal support. 

Our sources say the couple had NO prenup.

It's especially harsh because Johnny was extremely close to his mother. She says in the divorce docs that they separated on May 22 ... 2 days after Johnny's mom passed.

As if that's not enough ... Johnny's new movie, "Alice Through the Looking Glass," opens Friday.

The last time we saw them together was awkward, to say the least -- their video apology for the dog smuggling incident in Australia.

Patrick & Jill Dempsey Judge Wants Answers Are You Really Divorcing???

5/25/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0524-patrick-jillian-dempsey-getty-02Patrick and Jill Dempsey have either reconciled or they've been asleep at the wheel in their divorce case, and now the judge has issued an ultimatum ... get on with the divorce or get it thrown out of court.

Jill filed for divorce from her former "Grey's Anatomy" star hubby in January of last year, but since then there's been no action in the case. Patrick didn't even file a response.

Judge Maren Nelson just sent Jill a legal doc, obtained by TMZ, in which she says the case has been stagnant and Jill hasn't moved for a final judgment. The doc goes on to say if the foot-dragging persists, the case could be dismissed.

Here's the real story. As we reported, neither Patrick nor Jill wanted a divorce ... she had problems with the fact that he seemed married to auto racing and was ignoring her and the kids. Patrick responded by saying that he wanted to stay married and promised to drastically cut back on racing, which he has done.

They've been together for months, so it seems that they may beat the judge to the punch and dismiss the case.

Derek Fisher Divorce Destroying Frozen Embryos ... After Nasty Split

5/25/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0524-derek-candace-fisher-tmz-getty-01Derek Fisher and his ex-wife, Candace, have decided to destroy the embryos they had frozen during their marriage as part of their divorce settlement ... this according to court documents obtained by TMZ Sports

It's a decision more and more couples are faced with during divorce -- and has become part of a larger ethical debate about when life actually begins. In fact, Sofia Vergara and her ex-fiance, Nick Loeb, are still locked in a legal war over the fate of their frozen embryos. 

But, according to court docs obtained by TMZ Sports, Derek and Candace are on the same page -- and signed documents agreeing to destroy the embryos that were on ice at a California reproductive center. 

There's more ... the court docs also show Candace made out like a bandit in terms of spousal support -- with Derek agreeing to shell out $109,000 A MONTH ($1.3 MILLION per year).  

Fisher also agreed to pay $15k per month in child support for their 9-year-old twin sons.

The documents also show the judge made their divorce official on May 24th ... ending a famously nasty breakup that went down 1 month after their 10th anniversary.

Fisher has since moved on and is now dating Gloria Govan ... but you knew that already.
