ShamWow Guy Wife Files for Divorce

10/17/2018 3:16 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Vince Offer -- the guy made famous by the ShamWow infomercials -- apparently couldn't soak up the problems in his marriage ... and his wife has officially filed for divorce.

Offer married Melody Barney in Malibu in 2014, and she submitted divorce papers -- obtained by TMZ -- Wednesday in L.A. to start the process to make them legally single.

According to the divorce docs, Barney is asking for legal and physical custody of their 4-year-old daughter. She says Offer can have visitation time. She's also asking for spousal support.

Vince hatched the ShamWow idea back in 2006, and the commercial made him famous in 2009 ... and it only cost $20,000 to make. 

Offer had some legal issues ... back in 2009, he was arrested for allegedly hiring a prostitute who bit his tongue during a hookup and wouldn't let go until he punched her. Both Offer and the woman were arrested for felony aggravated battery.

Offer hasn't done a whole lot since the ShamWow days ... with a few acting and voice acting credits to his name. 

Pete Davidson Breaking Up Is Hard To Do

10/17/2018 2:47 PM PDT

Pete Davidson looks like a man down on his luck since his split with Ariana Grande ... and you can't blame him.

Davidson arrived to his mom's house Wednesday with a hood over his head and phone in hand. It's the first time we've seen Pete since the breakup, and you can't do anything but feel sorry for the guy.

TMZ broke the story -- Ariana was seen for the first time Tuesday night since calling off their engagement -- she performed at a pre-taping for the NBC "Wicked" special. Davidson was set to headline a comedy gig at Temple University but has since pulled out.

Hard to tell from the pic ... but Pete's still got his Ariana tattoo on his hand. 

Ariana Grande Covers Pete Tat Like A Bad Boo-Boo

EXCLUSIVE

Ariana Grande is making an attempt to cover up any and all signs of Pete Davidson ... even if it means hiding a tattoo dedicated to Pete with a Band-Aid. 

Grande performed "The Wizard and I" Tuesday in NYC during a pre-taped segment for the upcoming NBC special dedicated to the Broadway musical, "Wicked." Ariana has a "pete" tattoo on her ring finger, and you can see in this side-by-side, she made sure to cover it up for any close-ups. 

The special is set to air October 29, meaning the split will be more than two weeks old ... so hiding the tattoo now does make a lot of sense. 

TMZ broke the story, the "Wicked" performance was Grande's first public appearance since the split ... Davidson was set to headline a comedy gig at Temple University Wednesday, but dropped out last minute

In a post that's apparently since been deleted, Ariana said, "time to say bye bye again to the internew for jus a lil bit. it's hard not to bump news n stuff that i'm not tryna see rn. it's very sad and we're all tryin very hard to keep goin. love u. and thank u for bein here always."

Ariana's also parted with the $100k engagement ring from Davidson, but will keep the couple's teacup pig.

Ariana Grande, Pete Davidson You Get the Ring ... I Get the Pig

10/16/2018 7:46 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson have called it quits, and that usually means dividing up the pots and pans, or in their case a super expensive engagement ring and a pet pig.

Sources close to Ariana tell us she's already returned the nearly $100k engagement ring Davidson gave her back in June. The ring -- a 3.03 carat diamond set in platinum -- was a one of a kind, made specifically for Grande, and took weeks to complete. We're told there was no struggle over who'd keep the ring. He bought it in contemplation of marriage, and she was quick to fork it over.

Piggy Smallz -- the couple's teacup pig they adopted last month -- became a signature of their relationship ... in fact, Davidson got a tattoo of Smallz on his torso shortly after she became part of their family.

Here's the thing. Ariana bought the pig and it was really hers from the get-go, so she's keeping it ... again, no fight over the porker. 

TMZ broke the story ... Ariana and Pete ended their engagement over the weekend. We're told the death of Ariana's former boyfriend, Mac Miller, was a breaking point for the couple's relationship ... and the split was a long time coming.

EXCLUSIVE

Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson's relationship was crumbling for weeks ... and the couple's PDA at 'SNL' over the weekend was the pair holding on for dear life. 

TMZ broke the story, Ariana was at 30 Rock Saturday night to support her then-fiance -- we're told the two shared plenty of hugs and kisses through the night -- and looked the opposite of a couple on the verge of a major split.

Sources close to the couple say there was no big fight or fallout between 'SNL' and when we broke the news of the split ... it was just time.

Our sources say the 'SNL' PDA was that of a couple holding on for dear life and desperately trying to make their relationship work. We're told they'd been trying to repair things for a while, but were essentially just going through the motions without real feelings anymore. 

As we reported ... Pete and Ariana got engaged back in June after only dating for a short period of time.

Neither has commented since we reported their split.

Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson hit a life-changing fork in the road last month when Mac Miller died -- and his death was the tipping point that led to their split ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to AG and PD tell us ... Ariana was in an incredibly dark place following her ex-boyfriend's apparent fatal overdose. She didn't blame herself -- she feels she did everything she could to get him sober -- but it left her an emotional wreck.

In the aftermath of Mac's death, our sources say Ariana realized a couple of things -- she couldn't be fully invested in her relationship with Pete, and she had rushed into a looming marriage way too fast by getting engaged.

TMZ broke the story ... Ariana and Pete broke things off this weekend and called off their engagement.

She never signaled things were bad. In fact ... Ariana was at 'SNL' Saturday supporting Pete and nothing seemed amiss. Folks who were there say they looked all boo'd up, kissing and holding each other backstage. Something clearly snapped Sunday.

Neither have commented on the breakup.

'BiP' Star Jenna Cooper 'Cheating' Texts Were Fabricated

10/15/2018 7:35 AM PDT
Breaking News

"Bachelor in Paradise" star Jenna Cooper is not a lying cheater out for fame ... this according to a forensic report.

Jenna had the forensic company digitally scrub her iPhone, iPad and iCloud backup for alleged text messages she sent saying she only got engaged to fellow 'BiP' contestant Jordan Kimball on the show to build Hollywood connections. The alleged texts -- sent to another man -- also said Jordan didn't mean anything to her and she had an off-camera boyfriend.

Screenshots of the texts first surfaced in August after the 'BiP' finale ... but Jenna's been on the warpath to clear her name, even going so far as to hire the forensic company.

Jenna's rep, Steve Honig, tells TMZ ... "A comprehensive forensic examination of Jenna’s devices by an independent third-party expert has definitively confirmed none of the text messages in question came from Jenna's phone."

Jenna's been trying to get Jordan to admit the texts are fake and accused him of dramatically changing his demeanor toward her when the cameras stopped rolling. She claims Jordan "let it be known there was only room for one celebrity in the relationship."

Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson are dunzo as a couple, and their engagement has officially been called off ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to the former couple tell us AG and PD split this weekend, with both parties acknowledging that it simply was not the right time for their relationship to take off. We're told the two still have love for each other, but things are over romantically.

Grande's recently expressed she was going through a rough patch, tweeting a lot of personal messages and saying she needs a break from the public spotlight and asking "can i pls have one okay day. just one. pls."

As for Davidson, he's continued to appear on SNL, even mentioning his former fiancee in a couple sketches. The last time we saw them together was just last week.

Our source says while things may be done for the couple for now, the two aren't ruling out the possibility of anything in the future.

'Modern Family' Creator No Spousal Support in Divorce, But ... She Gets $4 MIL a Year!!!

10/12/2018 5:06 PM PDT
Exclusive Details

Steve Levitan's bitter divorce has come to an end, and his ex-wife is walking away with a huge amount of money ... but so is he.

According to new legal docs obtained by TMZ ... Krista Levitan will get at least $4 MILLION a year in income from various projects -- including "Modern Family" -- but as long as that cash keeps flowing in ... he won't have to pay any spousal support.

But, that's not all -- Krista and Steve are also splitting several bank accounts worth tens of millions of dollars ... along with going 50/50 on various properties and cars.

Specifically, the docs say the 2 are to split the profits from the sale of their Santa Monica home ... which is worth about $40 million.

We broke the story ... Krista filed for divorce from Steve in 2016 after 23 years of marriage, and it appeared there was no prenup.

Things later took a nasty turn when Krista made claims of assault against Steve and tried to get a restraining order. A judge shot it down, but the divorce battle raged on.

It's all over now, though ... and both Steve and Krista have a lot of cash to remember each other by.

Ben Affleck Closely Monitored In Custody Agreement with Jen Garner

10/6/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner have reached a custody agreement, but it is vague for an obvious reason ... Ben's issue with alcohol.

As we have already reported, the couple long ago agreed to joint custody of their 3 kids. There are 2 elements to the agreement -- legal and physical custody.

Legal custody is simple ... they will jointly agree on decisions that affect the kids, such as education and various activities.  

As for physical custody, that's where it gets tricky. As we reported, the divorce was held up for a long time because Ben was on and off the bottle, and Jennifer didn't want to strike any custody arrangement until he was sober and stable.

We're told the physical custody agreement is vague ... it doesn't outline any specific division of time with the kids. But, we're told, at least at the beginning, Jen will get the lion's share of custodial time, and when Ben has the kids he will have a monitor to ensure he's sober and the kids are safe.

There's another factor -- their kids are older now -- 12, 9 and 6 -- and they may be conscious of Ben's problem with alcohol and how it's affected their family, and they will have a voice as well.

This was a difficult decision, but we’ve done plenty of tough things together and this is our next venture — love, mutual respect, and care for each other are what we are moving forward with.”
