Brad Pitt Still Ridin' Solo After Getting More Time With The Kids

6/13/2018 9:08 AM PDT

Brad Pitt seemingly enjoys some me, myself and I time ... because he was seen cruising all by his lonesome just a day after news broke he'd been granted more time with his kids.

Pitt was spotted in London Wednesday riding his bike near a hotel where his estranged wife, Angelina Jolie, is holed up with their six kids. Pitt was dressed casually ... sporting some headphones, a hat and shades.

Reports Tuesday claimed a judge recently ruled Brad have more communication and time with his kids. The stories claimed Jolie is not allowed to monitor phone exchanges between Brad and their children ... and the judge believed any alleged restriction by Jolie could prove to be harmful to the kids.

A plan for visitation between Brad and the youngins was also hammered out for while he's in London.

Angelina Jolie Judge Says Let Brad In with the Kids ... Or Lose Physical Custody

6/12/2018 1:07 PM PDT
Breaking News

6/13 -- A spokesperson for Angelina tells us, "This misleading leak is not in the best interests of the children. From the start, Angelina has been focused only on their health and needs, which is why it was so important that this last court hearing be conducted privately."

The statement continues, "It’s deplorable that someone, for their own selfish reasons, leaked selective portions of the confidential and sealed court record to create an inaccurate and unfair picture of what is really happening."Angelina Jolie is dangerously close to losing primary physical custody of her and Brad Pitt's six children if she doesn't switch up the how she lets the kids interact with dad.

According to a new report, the judge in the couple's divorce case believes it's "harmful" to the children if Angelina continues to restrict access to Brad. 

The judge has even laid down a strict new cell phone policy -- Brad will now be able to call and text each child at will -- without Angelina monitoring the convos.

The report details a new custody schedule for the summer too. Brad will see his kids in London for 10 days in early to mid-June, where he can hang with 1 or 2 of 'em at a time for four hours a day. In late June, he'll get 10 hours a day ... and from early to mid-July he'll get the kids for 4 consecutive days. In late July, they'll be with him in L.A. for about a week. 

A child psychologist has to be present while Brad visits the kids in London -- where Angelina is renting a house right now -- and has to make arrangements to have them see their doctors while in CA. When they're across the pond with dad, Jolie can only call once a day.

As for 16-year-old Maddox, he'll get to decide on his own how much time he wants to spend with dad.

Janet Jackson Brother Randy Stirring the Pot In Janet's Custody Fight

6/5/2018 8:07 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Janet Jackson's call to police over the weekend and the stories that followed are connected to her custody trial with Wissam Al Mana, but she's not the one stirring the pot ... according to our sources.

Janet's London custody case is contentious ... not because either parent thinks the other is unfit. Our sources say Janet's having trouble because she wants 1-year-old Eissa in the U.S. with her. Problem is ... Janet chose to move to London to be with Wissam and that's where Eissa was born. It was her decision to move back to the U.S. after they broke up, and that may be giving Wissam the edge.

Janet was indeed upset with Wissam over the weekend and we've learned she called the cops twice -- once on Friday and again Saturday. Thing is ... it was all about Wissam not making Wi-Fi available to Janet's nanny because cell service was spotty in Malibu and Janet wanted communication.

Stories initially surfaced that the nanny became frightened by Wissam's "aggressive behavior." The way the initial story went ... she was "terrified by his behavior and locked herself in a bathroom so she could contact Janet." That story did not come from Janet ... it came directly from her brother, Randy.

Sources connected to the former couple say Randy is fanning the flames of conflict to help Janet gain an edge in her custody case. They say her call had nothing to do with a terrified nanny. It was all about cell phone service, although she did drop a reference to drug use.

We're told cops went out and were literally there only a few minutes before they realized nothing was wrong and told them to deal with the cell phone service issue themselves.

One source told us Janet and Wissam each respect the other as parents and Randy has inserted himself to no good end.

Dennis Quaid Divorce Final Massive Spousal Support Settlement

4/27/2018 10:42 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Dennis and Kimberly Quaid are officially divorced, and their prized assets will be split jointly -- their twins.

Under the terms of the divorce, although they will share joint custody of their 10-year-old twins, she gets the lion's share of physical custody -- 75%.

Dennis will pay $13,750 a month in child support, but the amount goes up if he makes more than $1.3 mil in a single year.

As for spousal support, she's getting a lump sum -- a whopping $2 million. She gets another million bucks to make their property settlement agreement even steven.

As for who gets the pots and pans ... she keeps her 2014 Mercedes, he gets the 2007 Land Rover, the 2012 Mercedes and the 2013 Honda. He gets their pad in Austin, and they're splitting the proceeds from the sale of their family home.

All of the residuals from the movies Dennis made before their 2004 marriage are Dennis' sole property, and they split the residuals for movies he made after they got hitched.

Kimberly filed for divorce back in 2016 -- in fact, it was the second time she filed. She withdrew her first divorce petition back in 2012.

The former couple famously sued Cedars-Sinai Medical Center over a bungled procedure that almost killed their twins shortly after they were born. They were given a massive overdose of Heparin. The Quaids settled with Cedars

Stevie J & Joseline Hernandez Settle Child Custody War

4/27/2018 7:56 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Stevie J and Joseline Hernandez have finally settled their nasty child custody case ... and they've come to a pretty amicable agreement.

Stevie and Joseline hammered out the details -- in legal docs obtained by TMZ -- for 1-year-old Bonnie Bella. Stevie -- who makes $30k/month -- will pay Joseline $1,000 a month in child support. The docs say Joseline also rakes in $30k/month on her own.

The pair also agreed that when Bonnie is with either of them, they will not have any overnight or intimate guests.

Stevie and Joseline will have joint physical custody, but Joseline gets primary physical custody.

Ciara Future's Blowing Off Our Son ... And It's Hurting Him

4/26/2018 3:31 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Future may not be a deadbeat dad, but he's a repeated absentee one ... at least according to Ciara, who's trying to drag him into court over it.

Ciara blasts her baby daddy in new docs, claiming he's skipping too many scheduled visits with little Future ... who's now 3 years old. According to the docs, Future no-shows for visits 37 percent of the time, and frequently he does so at the last minute -- which screws with her schedule.

She also says when their son goes to Georgia, where Future lives, the child spends most of his time with grandma or great-grandma -- instead of Dad -- and she rarely gets to FaceTime with her son.

She also says little Future has health issues that have been exasperated by all the cross-country travel. She doesn't say why that's Future's fault, but does say it's another reason why the travel schedule for their son needs to change.

Ciara says the boy is constantly exhausted due to the travel and, as a result ... has emotional breakdowns while he's at school.

She wants to go to mediation with Future, so they can hammer out a better schedule for their son's travel and for sake of his health. We've reached out to Future's camp.

Keshia Knight Pulliam Wins Custody in Adultery Divorce Trial

4/23/2018 4:00 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Keshia Knight Pulliam is now a single woman ... her divorce was just made final.

Under the terms of the divorce, she gets primary custody of their one-year-old daughter, Ella Grace. Ed Hartwell gets visitation rights. They had a fight over the child's last name -- each wanted theirs. In the end, they compromised on Ella Grace Pulliam-Hartwell.

He also has to pay $3,007 per month in child support.   

The divorce was granted on grounds of adultery and cruel treatment. Keshia was represented by Tanya Mitchell Graham.

According to legal docs, obtained by TMZ, Hartwell admitted during the trial he lives with his lover, Tonya Carroll, who's pregnant with his child. 

Another issue came up during trial ... Hartwell -- a retired NFL linebacker -- takes meds that impair his ability to make decisions for their child.

Rob to Blac Chyna You Put Our Kid at Risk ... Wait 'Til the Judge Gets You

4/3/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Rob Kardashian is livid at Blac Chyna for putting 1-year-old Dream in harm's way over the weekend at Six Flags ... so he's taking her back to family court, and this one's gonna hurt.

Sources connected to Rob say he has been watching Blac Chyna's antics in horror for months and is increasingly worried for his daughter's health and safety. The last straw was turning Dream's stroller into a weapon as she attacked a woman who dared to touch the kid.

We're told Rob and his lawyers will file legal docs asking for a hearing to set clear rules for Blac Chyna ... what she can and cannot do when the child is present.

On that subject, Rob is also concerned Chyna is bringing new men -- the latest of which is her 18-year-old bf, YBN Almighty Jay -- into her home when the child is present. He wants an order similar to the one in the Jesse Williams custody case ... where neither parent can introduce a boyfriend or girlfriend to the child unless the relationship lasts longer than 6 months.

And then there's the issue of money. Rob is currently paying Chyna $20,000 a month in child support, which he thinks is ridiculous for several reasons. First, they have 50/50 joint custody so the monthly paying is absurd. More to the point, she makes way more than him. In fact, his earning power has been reduced to zero since he was banned from Instagram -- the platform that fueled his online business.

We're told Rob will be going to court any day asking for a massive reduction in child support.  

Nas If I Ruled Jurassic World ... With My Kid!

4/3/2018 6:55 AM PDT

Nas didn't have to take his son, Knight, to an island off the coast of Costa Rica to see dinosaurs over Spring Break ... he took him to Universal Studios where they hopped on the Jurassic Park ride.

Hard to tell who had more fun Monday on the ride ... Nas or his 8-year-old kid. Nas has plenty of reasons to smile though, and staying dry is the least of them.

He's been embroiled in a war over child support and custody with Knight's mom, Kelis. She wants Nas to cough up more than the $8k he's paying her now in child support. They recently settled their custody battle switching off birthdays -- he gets even years, she gets odds -- and holidays.

Looks like he got Easter.

Mel B to Stephen Belafonte My Relationship with Eddie Murphy is Good Now ... So, Stay Away from Our Daughter!!!

3/29/2018 11:03 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Mel B is not retaliating against Stephen Belafonte by keeping her daughter, Angel, from him ... she says she wants him out of the picture because she now has a strong relationship with the child's biological father -- Eddie Murphy.

Mel B and Stephen are at war over custody of 10-year-old Angel. Although Eddie's the dad, Stephen raised her with Mel B since birth. 

According to new legal docs, obtained by TMZ, Mel B says while she was with Stephen he aggressively tried to drive a wedge between her and Eddie. She says Stephen once took her phone and sent text messages to Eddie's assistant ... and whatever he texted pissed Eddie off enough to cancel a visit with Angel.

She says Stephen's allegation that Eddie has abandoned Angel is BS ... Mel B says Eddie has interacted with Angel numerous times.  

Mel B says since Stephen's been out of the picture she's resurrected her relationship with Eddie. He got Angel her first cell phone, Angel named one of her dogs Axel after Eddie's character in "Beverly Hills Cop" and she's plastered pics of the "Shrek" premiere on her bedroom wall.

Mel B says Angel is flourishing now but is terrified of Stephen.

She also says it's laughable that Stephen has bonded with Angel ... she says he confuses Angel for his other daughter, Madison, in his legal docs.

Stephen Belafonte Accuses Mel B of Brainwashing Daughter

3/27/2018 3:48 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Stephen Belafonte has asked a judge to essentially order his daughter into therapy to deprogram her from Mel B's campaign of hate.

Belafonte says Mel B has poisoned 6-year-old Madison with lies about him, making outrageous statements to the child, including putting in her head that Stephen was abusive to her sister, Angel.  Belafonte points to a letter purportedly written by Angel saying she was scared of him, but the letter uses adult language such as "witnessing physical abuse," and "attempting to fake sleep." He says Mel B wrote the letter.

He also says it's Mel B's M.O. to alienate children from their fathers. He says during their marriage, she had a consistent plan to alienate her oldest daughter, Phoenix, from her biological father.

Stephen also says Mel B made an outrageous claim that he gave Madison medicine that made her throw up. He says all he gave her was Children's Tylenol.

Stephen wants the judge to order Madison into therapy to shield her from the acrimony surrounding the divorce and presumably deprogram her from what he says are Mel B's lies.

Stephen Belafonte Why Didn't I Adopt Eddie's Daughter? ... Never Thought I Had To

3/27/2018 6:57 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Stephen Belafonte says he never adopted Eddie Murphy and Mel B's biological daughter because he always thought of himself as her true father, and it never occurred to him.

We got Stephen Monday night at the Sunset Marquis Hotel in WeHo, where he explained why he was still fighting for visitation rights to his stepdaughter, Angel, with Mel in court.

It comes down to this for Stephen ... Angel is his daughter, plain and simple. He says Eddie was never really in the picture, and he never thought he would have to adopt Angel because he would be with Mel forever. As for what went wrong -- besides the divorce -- he's got a label for what he believes Mel pulled in court.

He shows us his tattoo again as well, this time taking a moment to explain the design's significance ... and why he won't complete it until he's reunited with his kid.

Britney Spears Dad Wants K-Fed's Tax Returns 'Cause He Thinks Kev's a Freeloader

3/22/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Britney Spears' dad is calling Kevin Federline's bluff that he needs more child support to care for the 2 kids he had with the singer ... we've learned Jamie Spears will demand to see Kevin's 2017 tax return to see if he's working for a living or sponging off her.

We've learned K-Fed's lawyer sent Jamie Spears a letter Tuesday demanding her 2017 tax return.  Kevin will be getting the exact same letter in the next day or so.

We're told Jamie Spears ain't budging ... he won't agree to pay Kevin a cent over the $20,000 a month he's been getting until Kevin gives him a full accounting on how the money is being spent. Jamie believes Kevin is misusing some of the $20k by spending it on his 4 other children from different women.

So far K-Fed and his lawyer haven't provided such an accounting, although they have demanded more child support. Jamie's position -- the kids needs haven't changed, so the only issue is whether $20k a month cuts it.

We're told Jamie wants to make sure the kids are getting what they need from both Kevin and Britney, and if a judge ultimately says she should pay more, he'll be down with it. But he wants to control the purse strings to make sure Kevin isn't squandering the cash on matters unrelated to Sean and Jayden.
