Kate Beckinsale Files Response in Divorce

4/21/2017 12:01 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kate Beckinsale has just responded to her estranged husband's divorce petition, and it seems this divorce should go down with very little drama.

Kate is reserving the right to spousal support from Len Wiseman, who filed for divorce last October.  

Kate says in her docs, filed by disso queen Laura Wasser, she wants her jewelry and personal effects to remain hers. She also wants all of her earnings after they separated to remain hers. Her docs don't give a date of separation, and his docs don't list a date of separation either.

The couple married in 2004 and have no kids together.

The couple's marriage hit the rocks in November 2015. Len was spotted out with model CJ Franco.

4/21/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Carmelo Anthony and La La are hashing out a temporary custody agreement in which she will get primary custody of their son ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to the former couple tell us 10-year-old Kiyan will live with La La in NYC, but Melo has a totally open line of communication and will able to spend time with his son as much as he'd like.

We're told the 2 believe they can work out all the details without going to court ... it being done with their lawyers.

Both Carmelo and La La agree it's important they work out a structure for Kiyan so he's not whipsawed from place to place while they end their marriage. We're told La La has issues with Carmelo for sure, but she's adamant he's a great dad and deserves time with his son.

We're told they are absolutely getting divorced, even though legal docs haven't been filed ... yet.

Mary J. Blige My Ex Blew $420k To Live It Up with New GF

4/20/2017 4:40 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Mary J. Blige is ripping into estranged husband Martin "Kendu" Isaacs for spending her hard-earned money on his new girlfriend, and demanding she support his kids from a previous relationship.

TMZ obtained new docs filed by Mary in the divorce, and she says during the marriage Martin took more than $420,000 and chalked it up as "travel charges." Remember, he was her manager ... but Mary says those expenses were not business-related and did NOT include her. She says Martin spent that dough on his gf.

As we've reported ... Martin is asking for more than $110k per month in spousal support, but Mary says that's outrageous. She says, "I am not responsible for supporting [Martin's] parents and his children from another relationship which he lists as ongoing monthly expenses." 

Plus, Mary says there's no money left for handouts, anyway. In the docs, she says their estate is "underwater" ... to the tune of $10 million. As she put it, she has all the burden of covering their expenses, while Martin "contributes absolutely nothing."

We reached out to Martin's attorney, but no word back yet.

Carmelo & La La Anthony Prenup in Play Hundreds of Millions on the Line

4/20/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

When, not if, Carmelo or La La Anthony pull the divorce trigger, there will be a road map on how they will divide their $200 plus million fortune.

Sources connected to the couple tell us they signed a prenup before getting hitched in 2010. We're told the prenup benefits Carmelo way more than La La, and for obvious reasons. He's in the middle of a $124 million contract with the Knicks and has earned north of $200 million in his career. 

Melo has a lot more in the money dept. He's been a top brand ambassador to the Jordan brand and Foot Locker.

As for La La ... she was making money as an MTV VJ when they met and has continued to work through the marriage as an actress, model and producer.

All that said, prenups are not necessarily airtight and are frequently challenged by the person who ends up with the short end of the stick. These challenges almost always result in a settlement where the person with the money antes up more than required under the written agreement.

One other thing. Some prenups actually include "cheating clauses," which entitle the non-cheating party to more money if the spouse strayed. As we reported, a woman claims she's pregnant with Melo's kid. We don't know if this clause is included in their prenup.

Utah Jazz's Jeff Withey Accused of Domestic Violence ... By Playmate Ex

4/20/2017 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Utah Jazz center Jeff Withey has been accused of domestic violence in a police report filed by his Playboy Playmate of the Year ex-fiancee, Kennedy Summers ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Law enforcement sources confirm the report was filed in Manhattan Beach, CA on Tuesday and references multiple alleged incidents. We're told cops are focused on one alleged incident from 2016. 

Our law enforcement sources tell us cops were called to an incident involving Withey and Summers last year, but no report was made at the time and nobody was arrested.

Sources connected to Summers tell us she filed the report now because Withey and the Jazz are in an NBA playoff series with the L.A. Clippers and she's concerned for her safety when he's in L.A.

Kennedy’s rep, Zack Teperman, tells us ... "Given the ongoing circumstances, our client now needs to protect herself and come forward about everything so this doesn't happen to her or others in the future."

Withey and Summers have had relationship issues for years -- they broke up back in 2016 after Summers trashed the NBA player on social media when she found out he took someone else on a movie date behind her back. 

They reconciled and got engaged a few months later before finally calling things off for good in October. 

We reached out to Withey's camp for comment. So far, no word back.

Carmelo and La La Anthony are separated ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to the couple tell us the actress and NBA superstar are now living separately. La La moved out of the family home last week and has her own place in NYC now.
