Johnny Depp Report: Attacked Amber in 2014 ... His Assistant Apologized

6/2/2016 6:58 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0601-johnny-depp-amber-heard-getty-02Johnny Depp kicked Amber Heard and repeatedly attacked her as far back as 2014, and his assistant begged Amber to forgive him ... according to text messages sent between them and posted by ET.

Depp's assistant, Stephen Deuters, purportedly texted Amber in 2014 to say, "He was appalled. When I told him he kicked you, he cried. It was disgusting. And he knows it."

ET's report says Amber responded, "He's done this many times before ... And I always stay."

Depp and Heard started dating in 2012, and the exchange makes it seem like Johnny was seriously out of it at the time of the alleged attacks. Both Amber and Deuters refer to Johnny as not knowing "the severity of his actions."

Depp's reps have not responded to the report.

Amber Heard Cops Interviewed by LAPD Brass We Saw No Injuries

6/1/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0527-amber-heard-johnny-depp-tmz-07The 2 officers who interviewed Amber Heard the night she was allegedly attacked by Johnny Depp have spoken with LAPD brass, and our sources say they are adamant ... Amber had no visible injuries.

The officers spoke with superiors Tuesday afternoon and said they had no idea Johnny Depp was involved at all -- the 911 call came in under the name Heard, and they did not associate her with Depp.

The 2 cops say the information they had when they knocked at her door was only that there was a domestic dispute. Amber opened the door just a crack but would not let them in. They questioned her through the door and she said it was a simple verbal argument with her husband. She never mentioned Depp by name. 

The officers told her they needed to make sure she wasn't declining help under duress, so they insisted on coming in and speaking with her. Amber obliged, and the officers say they looked at her closely enough to determine there were no marks, swelling or bruising on her face or other exposed parts of her body. 

Our LAPD sources say precisely what several doctors told us ... if Johnny threw an iPhone at her pitcher style, and then followed up with hair-pulling and hitting, there would have been swelling at the very least, and most probably some immediate bruising or redness. The officers saw nothing.

The cops insist if they had seen any sign of injury they would have taken a report and tracked down the husband.

Bikram Yoga Guru Divorce Wife Gets Ferrari, He Keeps The Lawsuits

5/31/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0520-Bikram-Choudhury-rajashree-GETTY-01The wife of hot yoga mogul Bikram Choudhury didn't just score fancy whips in their divorce ... she also made sure she was off the hook in all his pending lawsuits.

According to legal docs ... Bikram is facing at least 10 lawsuits. As we previously reported ... at least 6 of those allege rape and sexual assault.

His divorce from his wife of 31 years, Rajashree, was finalized earlier this month, and a key provision in their settlement was she will not pay for any of his misdeeds. In case she gets sued over his hijinks and loses, he has to pay what she owes.

As for the rest of their property, it looks like Rajashree got most of what she wanted ... including their Bev Hills and L.A. pads, the Ferrari, Mercedes 550 and a Bentley.

Bikram got to keep their home in Hawaii.

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.
