Angelina Jolie I Want to Be Single, STAT!!!

8/7/2018 10:19 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

Angelina Jolie is sick of being married to Brad Pitt and is asking the divorce judge to end her marriage and make her single again, even before the judge deals with some nasty child custody issues.

Angelina's new lawyer just filed legal docs asking the judge to issue a final divorce decree this year.

Her attorney also claims in the docs Brad Pitt has not paid "meaningful child support" since their separation nearly 2 years ago. She says there has been an "informal arrangement," but Brad has not even lived up to that agreement.  

She wants the judge to issue a formal child support order and make it retroactive against Brad.

TMZ broke the story ... Angelina's lawyer, Laura Wasser, is going to quit because Angelina has been very difficult to work with and is making the divorce way more contentious than necessary. The document that was just filed is revealing, because she now has 2 new lawyers -- presumably the ones who will replace Wasser.

Stephen Belafonte Declares Victory In Mel B Divorce Settlement

8/7/2018 10:05 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Stephen Belafonte's feeling like a million bucks after finally settling his long, bitter divorce from Mel B -- and he'll get a ton of money on top of it.

Stephen's thrilled with the outcome of the ex-couple's case because all abuse allegations made against him by Mel were dropped ... and he's not losing any parenting rights with their daughter either.

So, here's what he gets ... $5,000 a month in child support, and that's on top of the $15k a month in spousal support that he's already been getting. Mel B must also pay his lawyer's fees -- $350,000 to be exact.

Stephen and Mel B finally agreed to sell their Hollywood Hills home and split the profits 50/50.

As we reported, Mel B got a restraining order against Stephen after claiming abuse, and she dropped it. He also dropped his restraining order. They did agree to stay 200 yards clear of each other at all times.

Belafonte and Mel B share 50/50 custody of their daughter.

He says the final showdown in court proves Mel B was making baseless claims against him.

Britney Spears Berlin Concert Break w/ 2 Sons ... Now THAT'S Child Support!!

8/6/2018 6:55 AM PDT

Britney Spears doesn't subscribe to the "More Money, More Problems" theory ... or so it seems 'cause she's having a helluva time with her 2 sons in the midst of a child support battle with Kevin Federline.

The singer and her 2 sons -- Sean and Jayden -- hit up a sightseeing tour Sunday at the Lustgarten in Germany. Awesome way to enjoy a break from her concert tour. They all seemed to enjoy the sights ... under the watchful eye of security. But back in the States, not everything was coming up roses.

TMZ broke the story ... Britney's legal team squared off Friday with Kevin, who has demanded way more in child support than the $20k per month she's been forking over. He wants $60k a month ... and she's willing to go around $10k a month higher, although she says she pays for everything and all he wants is to have her support his 4 other kids. 

Angelina Jolie Making Divorce So Hostile ... Her Lawyer is Quitting

8/4/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Angelina Jolie is fighting Brad Pitt so hard and nasty in their divorce and child custody dispute, her lawyer is quitting her ... sources tell TMZ.

Sources familiar with the matter say Angelina has been out for blood. As one source connected to Brad tells us, they believe she wants to kill any relationship he has with his kids. We're told there has been a lot of screaming on Angie's part ... as one source said, "She's fueled with anger and has gotten ridiculously unreasonable."

Our sources say her lawyer, Laura Wasser, is going to quit and made that known to her, because it's gotten too venomous. It seems like this was not a good match, because Wasser has made a name for herself in divorce circles by promoting settlements and co-parenting

We're told Angelina has hired another law firm to take over when Wasser officially leaves, but for now the divorce is nowhere near settling ... it's more like all-out war.  

Blake Griffin Strikes Child Support Deal ... With Brynn Cameron

8/1/2018 8:10 AM PDT
Breaking News

Blake Griffin has reached a truce with baby mama Brynn Cameron in their nasty custody fight -- striking a deal on child support payment and custody right before they were set to go to trial. 

Blake and Brynn had 2 children together during their 8-year relationship -- and were supposed to get married back in 2017 ... until he called things off at the last minute and started dating Kendall Jenner

Brynn went after Blake hard in court docs -- claiming Griffin left her basically homeless and cash-strapped when he bolted. 

Our sources tell us a trial was scheduled to begin Wednesday -- but, the two sides were able to privately hammer out an overall custody settlement ... and now the trial is off. 

We're told the two have agreed on joint custody on the children. They're both committed to co-parenting in a friendly manner for the sake of the kids. 

As for Blake's monthly payments -- there's a report he'll have to fork over $258,000 per month ... but, we're told that number is wrong. 

The terms of the settlement are confidential, but we're told the monthly payment is "significant."

As one source puts it, "Both sides are happy" and they're ready to move forward with their lives. 

Nancy Grace Jenelle Evans Might Lose Her Kid Over Road Rage Incident

7/27/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Nancy Grace thinks the lack of self-control and recklessness shown by Jenelle Evans during a fit of road rage could land her in legal hot water ... and even cost her her child.

We got the 'Crime Stories' host at LAX and asked for her take on the "Teen Mom 2" star whipping out a gun in her car with her 8-year-old son beside her. Nancy blasts Jenelle for putting her child in danger ... and believes it might lead to criminal charges and her kid being taken away.

And, much like the other driver in the road rage incident ... Grace says the situation could have been much worse, and it's ridiculous Jenelle didn't use better judgment as a parent.

We broke the story ... Jenelle's ex feels the same way as Nancy, and believes Evans' dangerous behavior proves he should have custody of their 4-year-old son, Kaiser.

'Jersey Shore' Ronnie Back with Jen for 4th of July ... But, Not 'Back Together'

7/5/2018 9:15 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ronnie Ortiz-Magro's hanging with his baby mama a little more than a week after she allegedly dragged him with her car ... but it's not all amoré just yet.

Sources close to the on-again-off-again couple tell TMZ the 'Jersey Shore' star and Jen Harley were spending time together this week, including on the 4th of July. We're told Jen flew out to Jersey earlier this week, and the pair's been kickin' it for a few days now.

All that said ... our sources say Ronnie and Jen are not officially back together at this point. They're simply working things out for the sake of their daughter, Ariana.

We broke the story ... Jen dodged domestic violence charges after getting busted at the end of last month for allegedly bloodying Ronnie up during a fight in the car.

The incident left one hell of a bloody mess behind, inside the car and out.

Despite Ronnie's close friends wanting him to stay away from her out of fear for his safety, he seems to be doing things his way. So far, so good -- we're told he and Jen have had no major issues this week.

Ronnie still wants a formal child custody agreement though -- he wants a 50/50 split.

6/26/2018 7:19 AM PDT

Asking Jeremy Meeks "What's Gucci?" will probably trigger a hard side-eye.

The "Hot Felon" dripped in Gucci from head to toe as he arrived Monday in L.A. He'd flown in from the UK, where he lives with his new baby mama, Chloe Green, and soon with his 9-year-old son, Jeremy Jr.

TMZ broke the story ... Jeremy was granted primary physical custody of Jeremy Jr., who will be living with his dad starting this summer. Additionally, Meeks paid his ex 6 figures as part of the terms of the divorce settlement, which is now officially final. Reason to celebrate for sure ... hence the getup.

Jeremy's tiger-print backpack retails for around $1,600. The shoes go for around $650 and the track jacket/pants will set ya back over $3,300.

Jeremy Meeks Paying His Ex 6 Figures ... Gets Custody, Moving Son to U.K.

6/16/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jeremy Meeks is gonna have his own modern family after striking a deal with his ex-wife that gives him primary custody of their 9-year-old son, and gives her a hefty sum of money ... TMZ has learned. 

Sources tell us the "hot felon" -- turned "still-hot ex-felon" -- and Melissa Meeks reached the agreement shortly after their divorce was finalized earlier this month. Under the terms, we're told, Jeremy gets primary physical custody of Jeremy Jr. and Melissa will get a check ... somewhere in the 6-figure range. 

As we reported, Jeremy and Melissa's original divorce deal had her getting primary physical custody with a 70/30 split in time with each parent. They've flipped that under the new deal and, starting this summer, Jr. will be living in the U.K. with Dad and his gf, Chloe Green.

We're told Jeremy and Chloe have already enrolled Jr. in a private school he'll begin attending in the fall.

The new arrangement allows Jeremy to merge both of his families. Remember, he and Chloe -- the Topshop heiress -- just had a baby of their own.

Now, little Jayden Meeks-Green will grow up with his big bro. 

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
