Angelina Jolie Files for Divorce from Brad Pitt Allegations of Substance Abuse, Anger

9/20/2016 7:28 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0920-angelina-jolie-brad-pitt-getty-03Angelina Jolie has filed for divorce from Brad Pitt and the trigger was a conflict over the kids, substance abuse and anger ... TMZ has learned.

Jolie filed legal docs Monday citing irreconcilable differences.

She's asking for physical custody of the couple's 6 children. She is asking the judge to give Pitt visitation. It's significant ... she does not want Brad to have joint physical custody ... only joint legal custody.

Sources connected with the couple tell us ... Angelina's decision to file has to do with the way Brad was parenting the children ... she was extremely upset with his methods. 

Our sources say, Angelina became "fed up" with Brad's consumption of weed and possibly alcohol, and mixed with what she believes is "an anger problem" ... felt it became dangerous for the children.

Indeed, Angelina's entertainment attorney Robert Offer says she made the decision "for the health of the family."

We're told there was no alleged "third person" ... her decision to file was solely over Brad's interaction with their children.

Jolie, who's being repped by disso queen Laura Wasser, is not asking for spousal support.

Jolie lists the date of separation as Sept. 15, 2016.

They married in August 2014. They've been together since 2004.

The last time we saw them together was in July when they took the twins, Knox and Vivienne, out for a birthday breakfast in West Hollywood.

9/19/2016 1:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0919-justin-bieber-sofia-richie-tmzJustin Bieber and Sofia Richie's relationship has fizzled, and they're moving on to see other people ... TMZ has learned. 

Sources connected to them tell us Justin and Sofia were never all that serious to begin with -- despite vacationing together in Mexico for her 18th birthday. They haven't been seen together in public since then, and we're told they haven't been talking much lately. 

Neither seems too busted up about the breakup. Sofia was out Sunday night at The Nice Guy, and also at a treats! Magazine party over the weekend ... enjoying herself with friends. We're told Justin is single and ready to date other girls.  

In other words -- exactly what you'd expect from an 18-year-old and a 22-year-old.

0913_Andrea-Bernard_Ricky-Schroder_tmz_gettyRicky Schroder and his wife of more than 2 decades are calling it quits ... TMZ has learned.

Andrea Schroder filed divorce docs in L.A., citing irreconcilable differences. The couple got married in 1992, and the breakup comes just a couple weeks shy of their 24th anniversary.

They have 4 children -- 2 boys and 2 girls -- but only their daughter, Faith, is a minor. Andrea wants sole legal and physical custody ... with visitation for Ricky.

The "Silver Spoons" and "NYPD Blue" star made headlines for his decision to yank Faith from her middle school in Malibu a few years ago. He was concerned something in the school was causing a cancer outbreak after 3 teachers were diagnosed and several more complained of ailments.

Andrea's also demanding spousal support.

Ricky has said he became a more devout Mormon due to Andrea's involvement with the Church.

A couple months ago, she posted a pic of herself, apparently in Paris, and talked about her "new, less predictable future."

0912-abby-wambach-home-red-fin-03Neither Abby Wambach nor her wife will get the house in their divorce -- because Abby is selling it ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Abby bought the 4,000 square foot pad in Portland, Oregon back in 2012 ... one year before she tied the knot with Sarah Huffman. Sarah moved in when they got married in 2013. 

But the couple split up after having trouble back in April -- and Abby put the place up for sale in August. 

The place is AWESOME -- 4 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, breathtaking views and all the privacy you could want. 

Wambach bought the place for $705k ... and she's listed it for $1.349 million. Not a bad profit if she can get it. 

By the way, one of the coolest rooms in the house ... is the bar, which may be one of the reasons Abby is unloading it.

Breaking News

0912-abby-wambach-divorce-sarah-huffman-TMZ-TWITTER-01Abby Wambach says she's divorcing her wife Sarah Huffman -- the woman she famously kissed after winning the 2015 World Cup.

In related news, Wambach is also opening up about her struggles with alcohol and prescription pill abuse -- saying she's been abusing Vicodin, Adderall and Ambien for years. 

"I was stubborn and I was in denial," Wambach told the AP.

"That night getting arrested was one of the best things that has ever happened to me. Because if I don't get so publicly shamed and publicly humiliated, I don't think I wake up."

Wambach was arrested for DUI in Portland, Oregon on April 3rd. She later pled guilty in the case and has been sober ever since.

Hot blonde chick? Check. 

Expensive Bev Hills steakhouse? Check. 

Leave in a sick Ferrari? Check ... and (probably) mate.

Nick Young is clearly ready to move on from Iggy Azalea -- and began the courting process Thursday night with a brand new lady friend at Mastro's. 

0909-sub-nick-young-blonde-date-akm-01It looked like it went pretty well ... with one slight hiccup. 

The two sat on the front balcony area -- and our photog says the two spent a bunch of time on the date playing on their cell phones. 

So, bad move?? Or just the way it is nowadays? 

Check out the clip -- how do you think it went?

Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston How Real Was It???

9/7/2016 7:24 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0907-taylor-swift-tom-hiddleston-getty-01Now that the fat lady has sung, people who were around Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston are talking about their relationship or lack thereof, and a lot comes down to timing.

You'll recall Taylor and Tom were first seen together at the Met Gala in early May, right before she broke up with Calvin Harris. There was hardly a breath between her breakup with Calvin and a major public display of affection between Taylor and Tom.

It may not be coincidence that Taylor and Tom were public about their relationship as Calvin's camp was spinning stories that she cheated on him. Some people familiar with the situation say Taylor's brand is so strong and clear ... it's better to make it appear her new relationship was serious rather than just a fling.

0907_taylor_swift_tom_hiddleston_kissing-TheImageDirectSomething happened in June that was very un-Taylor-like. A photo agency got a pic that sure looked staged ... a pic on her Rhode Island estate showing Taylor and Tom kissing.

Taylor and Tom haven't been seen together since July 27. There was a lot of talk they had broken up but no one from Taylor or Tom's camp was talking for more than a month. Finally, Tuesday, the day after Labor Day and what people call the official end of summer, Taylor's camp leaked the breakup. 

So the question ... how much of this was real, and how much was just image?


Taylor Swift, Tom Hiddleston Splitsville

9/6/2016 1:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0906-taylor-swift-tom-hiddleston-split-tmz-02Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston have called it quits after only 3 months of dating ... TMZ has confirmed.

TayTom became an item in mid-June ... shortly after her split with Calvin Harris ... although some think it started before. 

Taylor and Tom got off to a hot start, but there were signs things were fizzling when she was spotted Tom-less in NYC two weeks ago.

US Weekly reported the split. No word yet on who called it off, but we're told it wasn't nasty. Then again, that's what we were initially told with Calvin.


Bella Thorne I Can Make Out With a Girl ... And Still Be Single

9/6/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0902-bella-thorne-TMZ-01Bella Thorne posted makeout pics with her best friend Bella Pendergast -- then came out as bisexual -- but that doesn't mean "Bella Squared" is an item.

Sources close to the Bellas tell us ... Thorne is single, and the two are just friends who like to kiss ... sweet.

August was a busy month for Bella ... she broke up with BF Gregg Sulkin and called Bella P her "soulmate" after the makeout pics ... leading people to believe they were dating.

Not the case ... because the other Bella has been in a serious relationship for months with fellow UC Davis student Bram Kolber.

As for Thorne's breakup, we're told it was a buildup of small fights, but it ended smoothly because Sulkin was cool with her keeping the Sherman Oaks home they purchased together earlier this year.
