EXCLUSIVE

"Bachelorette" stars Andi Dorfman and Josh Murray have called off their engagement ... their rep tells TMZ.

It's pretty weird and pretty sudden. Three days ago they were on the red carpet for the Season 19 premiere of "The Bachelor." Chris Harrison asked them, "So when's the wedding?" He said there were no immediate plans as Andi rubbed his back.

The former couple got engaged after appearing on the show last year.

Andi and Josh, through the rep, tell TMZ, "After several months of being engaged and working on our relationship, we have decided that it's best for both of us to go our separate ways. We are very sad that it has come to this point, but this is what's best for both of us individually."

My Choice in Men Just Sucks!

Jennifer Lopez just massacred Marc Anthony, Ben Affleck, Diddy and worst of all ... Casper Smart!

JLo had a little truth slip on "American Idol" Wednesday night ... letting fellow judges Harry Connick Jr. and Keith Urban in on a secret -- she's awesome, but the problem lies with the men she chooses. 

We forgot poor Chris Judd. She thinks he sucks too.

Nicholas Sparks

Wife Has Moved Out and Moved On

EXCLUSIVE

0107_catherine_sparks_newhouse_launch
Nicholas Sparks and his wife may have announced their separation this week, but they are so far down the road to divorce she's already bought her own house ... TMZ has learned. 

Catherine became the owner of a $1.1 million mansion on December 9. It's 2 1/2 miles from the Sparks family home, which makes sense ... they have 5 kids together. The house sits on 4 acres of lakefront property. 

As TMZ reported ... Nicholas and Catherine signed a "postmarital agreement" back in August, which indicates they have reached a property settlement deal. They both waived their right to alimony.  

So far, no one has filed divorce docs, but it seems like that's just a matter of time.

Marriage Was Over Months Ago

Turns out famed author Nicholas Sparks didn't suddenly decide this week to end his 25-year marriage ... it looks like the deed was done months ago, and there are BIG financial repercussions.

TMZ has obtained a "postmarital agreement" filed by "The Notebook" author and wife Catherine back in August. They agreed neither would seek alimony from the other.  

They acknowledge neither has a claim on the assets the other accumulates after their separation. 

What's pretty clear is this ... they seem way more than "separated," which is what they told People. The document was signed after a quarter century of marriage, and it seems obvious ... Nicholas and Catherine decided last Summer their marriage was over.

Here's what it smells like ... they worked out a property settlement agreement and Catherine got a big chunk of change.

Nicholas Sparks

Separates with Wife

Famed author Nicholas Sparks has separated from his wife after 25 years of marriage.

"The Notebook" author told People, "This is, of course, not a decision we've made lightly. We remain close friends with deep respect for each other and love for our children."

The Sparks have 3 sons and twin daughters, between the ages of 12 and 23.

The language, "we remain close friends" sounds like more than a separation. 

We checked and so far there's no evidence anyone has filed legal docs to end the marriage.

Toya Wright & Memphitz

Separated & Living

on Separate Coasts

EXCLUSIVE

Lil Wayne Baby Mama Husband Separated
Lil Wayne's baby mama Toya Wright is about to be single once again ... because TMZ has learned she's separated from music producer hubby Memphitz ... and they're now living 2,500 miles apart.

According to our sources, Wright (who has a kid with former husband Lil Wayne) and Memphitz have been having big problems ... Memphitz recently moved to LA, leaving her behind in ATL.

We're told Memphitz -- who appeared with Toya on the BET reality show "Toya: A Family Affair" -- no longer wanted to be part of a "celebrity marriage." For him, it's now all about career.

The couple has been married since 2011. Neither side has filed for divorce yet ... but we're told Memphitz will let Toya file the papers. He's made it clear ... reconciliation is NOT in the cards.

As for rumors Memphitz knocked another woman up, not so ... apparently he had a vasectomy years ago. 

The more you know.

Kate Hudson and Matt Bellamy

Off the Market and In the Market

1/5/2015 9:34 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kate Hudson Matt Bellamy TogetherKate Hudson and Matt Bellamy gave everyone a big fat clue about their relationship status ... by doing something a freshly broken up couple doesn't do ... grocery shopping.

It sure looked like they had broken up last month ... Matt seemed downright giddy about being single. But things took a dramatic turn Sunday at a Brentwood supermarket, when the 2 shopped together, loaded their groceries in the same car and drove off.

It could be a co-parenting thing -- they have a 3-year-old son together -- but a shopping trip sure seems super domestic.

There were reports Hudson was hanging with "Dancing with the Stars" star Derek Hough ... but lately it seems it's all about Kate and Matt. They were in Aspen together over the holidays with their son.

Either the holidays have rekindled that flame ... or they found a REALLY good deal on macaroni and cheese.

Slash's Wife

Gunning For Half

We DON'T Have a Prenup

1/5/2015 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0104-perla-slash-INSTAGRAM-TMZ-01Slash's rock and roll fortune could soon be sliced in half ... TMZ has learned he didn't have a prenup and his wife is gunning for half.

Sources close to Perla Ferrar tell us she's already hired a lawyer to figure out exactly how much money Slash has earned since their 2001 marriage. The lawyer and at least one pencil pusher are assessing real property, album sales and other assets. 

Perla never knew specifics ... but she believes he's made 10s of millions of dollars since they married, and she's entitled to 50%.  

She can't touch the G-N-R loot pre-marriage -- which is enormous -- but her claim is anything but chump change.  

Slash has released 5 albums since they wed, including one with his band Velvet Revolver that went double platinum.

As we previously reported ... Slash filed for divorce last week, but that doesn't mean the fat lady has sung. He did the same thing in 2010 and withdrew his petition 2 months later.

We're told this time around Perla believes Slash has moved on -- he's already dating someone and has destroyed any chance of a reconciliation.

Angel McCord

Celebrity Divorce

It's Not Just for A-Listers!

1/4/2015 12:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0101-angel-mccord-tmz-01The list of celebrities who filed for divorce last month is a mile long and at the bottom of that list ... is Angel McCord ... because hers was one of the last we uncovered. 

McCord, best known for being the sister of AnnaLynne McCord, was only married to hubby Brett Donowho for four months before separating in September.

According to court docs, Donowho filed the divorce papers on December 11 and since they were together so briefly, with no kids ... this one should be settled quickly. 

Grab your scorecards -- Chris Rock, Jeremy Renner, Giada de Laurentiis, Slash, Elon Musk and even John Schneider all got their 2014 divorces in just under the wire -- days, in some cases hours,  before New Year's Day.  

It's the most wonderful time of the year ... for divorce attorneys.

I'm Officially

Jennifer Lopez Again

Jennifer Lopez
hasn't been Jennifer Lopez for a long time, but she's Jennifer Lopez again. We'll explain.

It turns out ... JLo legally changed her name to Jennifer Muñiz when she married Marc Anthony (his real name is Marco Muñiz) and she never changed it back. The couple filed for divorce in April 2012, but it didn't become official until June 2014.

And JLo remained Muñiz until December 31, when court docs show her name legally reverted back to Jennifer Lopez. 

JMu just doesn't have the same ring to it.

Nikki Reed

I'm Done With 'Idol' Marriage ...

But I'm Keeping the Dog

1/2/2015 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Nikki Reed Divorce
Nikki Reed will be living on her own -- now that her divorce from ex "American Idol" contestant Paul McDonald is finalized -- but she'll still have a guard dog by her side.

According to the final judgment in their split ... the biggest asset Paul's leaving the marriage with is the couple's Nashville home. Which is nice ... Music City for the music guy. Makes sense.

Nikki, on the other hand ... gets THREE other homes AND their "security dog" -- a German Shepherd named Enzo.  

In the docs, Paul and Nikki agreed to waive off any spousal support.

One last thing ... cars. Nikki gets THREE of 'em -- a Range Rover, a Toyota Tundra, and a Toyota Rav4. The docs make no mention of a vehicle for Paul. 

Good news for Uber.

EXCLUSIVE

Slash
jumped the deadline issued by his wife, Perla and pulled the trigger on divorcing her ... TMZ has learned.

Slash filed divorce docs in L.A. on Tuesday ... citing irreconcilable differences. He lists their date of separation as June 15th, and is requesting joint physical and legal custody of their boys ... 12-year-old London and 10-year-old Cash.

They've been married since Oct. 2001.

TMZ broke the story ... Perla flew to Hawaii -- with their sons -- on Sunday night and told the guitar god he had until New Year's Day to clean up his issues. 

Slash also filed divorce docs in 2010, but withdrew his petition two months later when he and Perla worked things out.

Lightning rarely strikes twice.
