Shannen Doherty Husband's Turn to Sue Over Cancer ... You Ruined Our Love Life!

12/6/2016 1:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1206_shannen-doherty_Kurt-Iswarienko_instagramShannen Doherty's husband isn't ready to let her biz managers off the hook for her breast cancer diagnosis -- he's filed his own lawsuit, on the heels of Shannen settling hers.

Kurt Iswarienko says the managing team destroyed his sex life with Shannen. In his suit, he echoes what Shannen said in hers -- that Tanner Mainstain Glynn & Johnson let her health insurance policy lapse, and therefore delayed her diagnosis.

In the docs, obtained by TMZ, Kurt also claims the firm mismanaged his funds, and got him mixed up in bad loans over the years that ruined his credit.

TMZ broke the story -- Shannen and the managers reached a settlement of her $15 million lawsuit back in August.

Breaking News

1206_daniele-watts_jim_parker_brian_james_lucas_facebook-3The cop who cited a "Django Unchained" actress for having sex in public has been called out for leaking audio of the incident, and it's gonna cost him some dough.

The L.A. Ethics Commission ruled Tuesday former LAPD Sergeant Jim Parker broke city rules by releasing the audio to TMZ following the 2014 incident with Daniele Watts, who Parker busted for having sex with her BF in their car in broad daylight.

The Commission said Parker was sharing confidential info related to the case when he released it, so he'll now have to pay a $500 fine ... instead of the max $10,000 he was facing. 

1206_daniele-watts-scene-tmz-swipeYou'll recall ... when Parker and his partner responded to the scene, Watts played the race card big time. She later apologized to the officers, and pled no contest to the charges.

Jay Z Check Out My Prince Sales Pitch ... That Failed

12/6/2016 11:47 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1206-launch-prince-jayz-getty-tmzPrince's estate just filed new docs in its lawsuit against Jay Z and it exposes something very few people get to see -- Jay Z the mogul, pitching his company in a big-time business deal. 

The estate is suing Jay Z's Roc Nation for streaming a ton of Prince's music on Tidal after his death in April. The new docs include a PowerPoint presentation that flaunts the Roc Nation empire's assets -- including music, sports, movies, concerts and more. It's actually incredibly impressive.

There's also a letter from Roc Nation's CEO to Bremer Trust -- the estate's administrator -- trying to persuade them to let Jay's company manage Prince's enormous catalog. As the CEO put it ... "[Prince] confided in and entrusted Mr. Carter and Roc Nation with his most prized possession, his creative expression. They spoke not just as respected businessmen, but as artists aligned in mission."

It sounds and looks great but as we've reported, the pitch fell on deaf ears. The estate turned down the offer and ended up suing over the streamed tunes.

Ronald Gasser Arrest Shooter Pointed Weapon at Naval Officer ... After Killing McKnight

12/6/2016 7:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The man who killed Joe McKnight got out of his car and pointed his weapon at a Navy officer who rushed to the scene to try to help ... cops say. 

Sheriff Newell Normand says they interviewed Ronald Gasser for more than 10 hours and spoke with more than 160 witnesses in the case. 

They believe after Gasser shot McKnight following a verbal altercation -- he got out of the car to see McKnight's body ... and was approached by a military officer. 

The Naval officer told Gasser to put his gun away because it was not in his best interest to shoot a Naval officer. 

The Naval officer and cops then tried to help McKnight -- but it was too late. 

Sheriff Normand says Gasser has insisted he was fearing for his life -- and that's why he pulled his weapon during the altercation.

However, the sheriff says ... "Suffice it to say that obviously, a lot of the independent witnesses have provided information that doesn't completely square up with Mr. Gasser's statement."

Desiigner Sued You Crashed Our Ferrari!! That'll Cost Ya $500k

12/6/2016 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1205-desiigner-tmzDesiigner had no business getting behind the wheel of a rented Ferrari, but since he wrecked it when he did, he needs to cough up some dough ... according to the rental company's lawsuit.

The rental company is suing the "Panda" rapper for destroying a 2014 Ferrari back in June. It had been rented by 2 of his friends, who are also named in the suit.

According to docs ... the friends gave Desiigner permission to drive the whip, and then he crashed it in NJ. The car's valued at $220k, but the company's suing for more than $500k because they say they're going to lose out on future rental money -- as in $1,599 per day.

The docs also included a cryptic tweet, supposedly from Desiigner, saying, "If you have a luxury car you better know how to drive." The rental company thinks it's a confession, but we checked and the account doesn't look like it belongs to Desiigner.

We reached out to Desiigner's rep, who tells us ... "This is the first that Desiigner or his team have heard about this lawsuit. The minute he has had a chance to consult with his attorney, his managers or his attorney will respond."

Phaedra Parks Apollo's Wasting Time ... Divorce a Done Deal, Like I Said

12/6/2016 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1205-phaedra-parks-apollo-nida-breakup-TMZ-INSTAGRAM-01Phaedra Parks said she was officially single again, but Apollo Nida said otherwise -- now we know who was actually right ... turns out, it's all Phaedra.

Court docs unsealed Monday back up Phaedra's original claim 100% -- she's been officially single since July.

According to the docs, Apollo was served in March -- while behind bars -- and even asked the court for time to respond, which he was granted. Still, 4 months went by and he went radio silent ... so the judge went ahead and signed off on the divorce without Apollo's signature.

The docs also include a parenting plan. Phaedra gets physical custody of their 2 kids while Apollo finishes his 8 year bid. When he's out, he'll get visitation, but she gets final say over any parenting disagreements.

Apollo denied knowing anything about the divorce, and even went so far as to file his own petition last week. Clearly, he's got time to kill right now.

Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt Child Visitation Changes in Hands of Therapist

12/5/2016 10:33 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1205-angelina-jolie-brad-pitt-tmz-02Brad Pitt's child custody arrangement with Angelina Jolie is in the hands of one man ... according to docs filed by Jolie.

Right now, the exes and their 6 kids are operating under a temporary custody deal agreed upon by both sides. As we've reported ... she has primary custody and Brad gets monitored visits, but the docs Angelina filed spell out the details.

According to the docs ... when and how Brad sees the children is determined by a psychologist who specializes in child custody issues. The deal says, the "frequency and conditions of the therapeutic visitation shall be determined by Ian Russ, Ph.D." Brad and Angie also must participate in group therapy sessions with the kids.

The terms of this deal must stay in place until there's a court order, or both parents agree to change it.

Additionally, the docs say Brad will submit to random drug and alcohol tests at least 4 times per month.

Pitt and Jolie made this arrangement in October, while Brad was still under investigation by the DCFS, but as we've reported ... the agency cleared him of any wrongdoing a month ago.

Jolie's filing essentially memorializes the temporary deal with the court. The judge signed it on Friday.

Fat Sal's sued to officially 86 Jerry in August, but in his suit Jerry's demanding his equity share and at least a million dollars in damages before he goes anywhere.

EXCLUSIVE

1202_asap_rocky_tmzA$AP Rocky is refusing to pay his old landlord a dime for "damage" done to his Soho apartment ... because he says the landlord owes HIM dough, and should be more grateful.

A$AP filed a countersuit ... saying the landlord was negligent in maintaining the building, and that caused 2 floods in the unit -- one of 'em so bad, the rapper says he had to rent another place for a month.

The landlord originally sued A$AP for more than $100k, claiming the rapper turned a closet into a recording studio and damaged the downstairs bathroom -- all of which A$AP finds laughable. In his docs, he says whatever changes he made actually increased the pad's value.

Translation: You're LUCKY I lived here.

A$AP is suing to get back his $40k security deposit, plus damages.
