Marc Anthony's ex-wife claims the singer has turned a cold shoulder on her children ... forcing them to sell their home and move into a hovel in the Valley ... while he lives like a king -- and to add insult to injury, he pays the very rich Jennifer Lopez a ton of child support ... this according to court documents obtained by TMZ.
Dayanara Torres -- the 1993 Miss Universe -- wants a huge increase in child support -- from $13K per month for their 2 sons, to $113K a month. It's an enormous increase, but she says it's a drop in the bucket for Marc -- who this year boasted he makes $1.25 mil a month -- MINIMUM.
It's especially infuriating for Dayanara, who claims Marc played the poverty card during their divorce, claiming he had such money trouble he had to sell his private island and let some of his staff go. Now get this ... the week the divorce became final, she says he bought JLo a $4 MILLION RING!
Dayanara says Marc goes weeks and even months without seeing their boys, one of whom has special needs. She mentions one instance where he told the boys he couldn't visit because of work, but then they saw him on TV cavorting on a beach with JLo. They were devastated.
Dayanara gives Marc backhanded credit for giving the kids lavish gifts. For example, last XMAS he sent them 4 huge boxes of toys, including an extravagant Lego set. But she says their apartment is so small they have no space to play with them.
She also grouses that Marc actually PAYS JLO child support, and a lot of it -- way more than she gets.
BOYCOTT LOUIS VUITTON
11/25/2013 2:26 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Kanye West just ordered all of New York City to stop buying Louis Vuitton ... STAT!
Kanye was on 92.3 NOW radio station moments ago when he handed down the edict, saying, "Everybody in New York City right now, don't buy any Louis Vuitton until after January."
Kanye says he's trying to make a point to the head of Louis Vuitton, Yves Carcelle, who refused to meet with the rapper the last time he was in Paris.
Kanye's point ... Yeezy's got power and influence ... and he's using it to teach Frenchie a lesson.
FYI, Kanye's been on an anti-fashion crusade recently, claiming the world's top designers have essentially blackballed him from the industry because he's a black rapper.
The crosses Yeezus has to bear.
'Housewives' Star Kenya Moore
Apollo's a Liar!
We're Not Sexting Buddies
11/25/2013 10:14 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
"Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Kenya Moore says she's no sext-messaging slut hooking up with Phaedra Parks' husband ... and thinks he spun the whole lie just for attention on the show..
Parks' husband Apollo Nida claims Kenya had sexted him while they were both in L.A. last year ... and proposed a face-to-face hook up too.
Last night on 'RHOA' ... Nida said Kenya "wanted to f**k, ok, she wanted to have sex in L.A." ... although he denies anything ever happened.
Moore tells TMZ she and Nida did text each other -- but there was nothing sexual, and they never met up. She gave us screen shots of what she claims was their text convo last October.
Moore says Apollo's BS is great fodder for the show, but she's not down with lying ... and adds she wants "to put an end to these false and defaming speculations and judgments against me."
Apollo had no comment.
Ignites War With Katherine Jackson
11/25/2013 9:25 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Katherine Jackson's lawyers think Conrad Murray is a coward who is trashing the man he killed for profit.
One of Katherine's lawyers tells TMZ, "Murray has refused to go under the OATH KNIFE and his attempt to exploit Michael are despicable and disgusting." Translation: He took the 5th because he's guilty as sin and now he's selling sordid stories about MJ to line his pockets.
Another lawyer sent Murray's attorney a scathing email, calling the doc "reprehensible."
But Murray's lawyer, Valerie Wass, quickly went on the counterattack, saying, "You and members of your client's family have been bad-mouthing my client for a long time. I don't blame him for talking, especially after ... you tried to portray him as an awful person."
What's unclear ... how Murray talking about holding MJ's penis clears up anything.
Murray Will Be Dead
I'll Buy the Bullet
11/25/2013 8:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Debbie Rowe is furious Conrad Murray trashed her in a new interview, and she tells TMZ ... she'll gladly buy a particularly lethal bullet to help end the doctor's life.
Rowe is "disgusted" by Murray's comment ... that he and Michael used to joke that neither would want to have sex with her.
Rowe fired back to TMZ, saying she believes within 18 months, "A Jackson fan will shoot him dead, and I'd buy the bullet." Rowe added, "I wouldn't shoot him but I'd buy the bullet ... a hollowpoint." FYI ... a hollowpoint bullet essentially eviscerates the target's insides.
And Rowe goes on, telling us, "If I had a dog as ugly as him [Murray] I'd shave its ass, make it walk backwards and put a wig on it." And, she says, "It takes 2 to f**k and there's not enough alcohol in the world."
Rowe, who raises horses on her ranch, says, "At least I can breed. he can't even write prescriptions anymore."
She's also indignant that Murray is claiming MJ took his own life by injecting himself with the fatal dose of Propofol while the Dr. was out of the room. She says, "It's so disgusting he's trashing the dead. The jury sure didn't buy his story."

After Movie Role Diss
11/22/2013 10:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Emile Hirsch won't let a little thing like nepotism bring him down ... telling us he's all good with Jim Belushi after the actor said his own son would play a better John Belushi than Emile in the upcoming biopic.
Emile already locked up the role and production is set to begin very soon ... but when we asked Jim about the casting choice this past weekend, he told us he wanted to keep it in the family.
So, how did Hirsch deal with Jim's comments -- he's actually cool with it ... or at least that's the way it seemed as the actor left Fig & Olive restaurant in L.A. last night.
Fun Fact: Fan boys FREAKED OUT when Batman producers announced Heath Ledger would play the Joker in "The Dark Knight" ... and he turned out to be awesome (Oscar, hello?!).
In other words ... hold your horses.

Khloe Kardashian is returning fire after her ex-stepmom sued her for defamation -- claiming the woman married her dying father at his weakest moment ... when he could barely stand on his own two feet.
Khloe filed the declaration in Ellen Pearson's lawsuit, describing her experience during Ellen and Robert Kardashian's 2003 wedding ... back when Khloe was just 19.
Khloe says her dad was extremely ill at the ceremony, suffering from severe mental, emotional and physical fatigue, unaware of his surroundings. She says her dad's mental state had been "compromised" due to his stage IV esophageal cancer.
It was so bad ... Khloe claims, "Several ceremony guests assisted my father from his bedroom to the couch and helped to sit him up straight for the ceremony, which took place at my father's couch." Khloe says her dad could only stand for a few minutes.
It's the latest shot fired in the endless legal war between Ellen and the Kardashian family, a fight that also involves Robert Kardashian's diaries ... which allegedly describe Kris Jenner as an abusive mom.
Khloe briefly addresses the diaries in her declaration -- claiming she had no idea they even existed until earlier this year ... and has good reason to believe they're not real.

Sean Penn went nuclear on a fan in a fancy San Francisco hotel last night -- threatening to jack the guy up after Sean caught him trying to sneak a cell phone pic ... and TMZ has the explosive footage.
Penn was at the Lobby Bar at the St. Regis Hotel in the Financial District ... when he saw a flash go off from another patron's cell phone and realized the guy was trying to take a photo.
A witness at the bar tells TMZ ... Penn bolted after the guy (who wasn't a paparazzo) ... and screamed at him, "Do we look like f**king zoo animals?"
Penn -- who was in town to speak at a sales conference -- also grabbed the man's phone and slammed it to the ground.
That's when our video begins ... and you can hear Penn yelling, "I'll make you eat the phone ... get the f**k out of here!!"
Moments later, a clearly irritated Penn complained to hotel management -- and can be heard saying, "You should do something about that."
We're told hotel management approached the fan and asked him if he wanted to call the police -- but the man declined and then left the bar.
FYI -- we're also told the man had attended the sales conference where Sean was speaking and was wearing his name tag at the time of the bar confrontation.

Casey Kasem's children will NOT assume control over their ailing father's life -- at least not yet -- a judge just denied their request for a temporary conservatorship ... TMZ has learned.
The Kasem kids went to court to show that Casey's wife Jean is not providing the care he needs ... and banned his own children from seeing him.
But a judge denied their request for an emergency conservatorship ... saying he has confidence the issue of visitation with the children can be worked out by attorneys on both sides.
The judge also said a temporary conservatorship is not necessary because Casey -- who is suffering from advanced Parkinson's -- is NOT "at risk" and is getting proper treatment at home.
As we reported, Jean offered the kids a deal ... drop their bid for a conservatorship ... and in return they would each get regularly scheduled, though brief, visits with Casey and notification when he's hospitalized.
The Kasem children rejected that offer.
