Jill Scott to Ex Your Stuff's in Storage ... But I'm Keeping the Robes!!!

7/19/2018 11:09 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jill Scott says she's done all she can to return her estranged husband's personal items, and if he really wants them he knows where to find them ... but they won't include those lavish robes, 'cause he stole them!

We broke the story ... Michael Dobson filed docs in the ex-couple's divorce case claiming Jill was refusing to fork over a lot of his stuff -- like a "Purple Rain" album, an extended shoe horn and 5 hotel robes.

Jill's firing back with docs of her own -- obtained by TMZ -- claiming she tried to deliver Michael all of his things but got no response, so she sent them to a storage facility in Atlanta where he now lives, AND sent him the key.

Jill claims he's yet to pick up his stuff -- including the shoe horn -- and refuses to make payments for the storage unit ... so she's still stuck footing the bill.

According to the docs, though ... those 5 hotel robes don't even belong to Dobson, because Jill says he stole them and SHE had to pay for them.

Jill's asking the judge to toss his request to return his stuff because she already did ... and she wants attorney's fees for her trouble.

EXCLUSIVE

Eli Roth says he's going through the easiest, friendliest divorce of all time ... and single life's not treating him bad either.

We got the famed director leaving Il Pastaio in Bev Hills Tuesday -- just hours after news broke of his divorce from actress Lorenza Izzo -- and he tells us ... it's all gravy.

Roth says all the right things, of course -- they really love each other, they're rooting for each other, their upcoming movie is going to be great ... so they just decided to happily split before anything negative happened.

As for any contentious topics like spousal support or splitting property ... Eli says it won't be an issue.

Good thing because, by the sound of it ... he's going to have his hands full right away dealing with all the "supportive" people sliding into his DMs.

7/17-- According to the docs, Eli lists the couple's date of separation as July 12 of this year. He's willing to pay Lorenza spousal support.

Eli Roth and his wife are calling it quits on their marriage ... the "Hostel" director just filed for divorce.

She's also in the upcoming, "The House with a Clock in Its Walls" ... which Eli directed. Of course, he's also known for his horror flicks and co-starring in Quentin Tarantino's "Inglourious Basterds."

It's unclear exactly what led to Roth's filing.

'Long Island Medium' Larry's Mystery Gal Revealed ... Hot Grandma from 'Bama

EXCLUSIVE

Theresa Caputo's estranged husband, Larry Caputo, is getting cozy with a woman he, ironically, met through "Long Island Medium" ... and yet no one saw it coming.

Sources close to the 'LIM' star tell TMZ Larry has been seeing 53-year-old Connie Stauddy of Decatur, Alabama. We're told they met online when Connie reached out to get a reading from Theresa. They stayed in touch, and have been talking long distance for a few months now.

We're told they're not quite an exclusive couple just yet ... the relationship is very new. We broke the story ... Larry was spotted out shopping with Connie in 'Bama this weekend, picking up some home essentials and perusing the furniture section.

Interestingly enough ... sources say Connie is going through a divorce of her own, so she and Larry have a lot in common right now. 

There's not much else we know about Larry's new gal, other than she has a couple of cute grandkids she's really proud of. She's also pretty hot for a 53-year-old ... good pick, Lar.

Johnny Depp Amber Heard Knuckle Tat Changes Again, From SCUM to SCAM

7/10/2018 8:59 AM PDT

Johnny Depp is throwing out all the rules on exes and tattoos, 'cause he's changed his Amber Heard-inspired knuckle ink yet again ... and added a dash of chaos.

Fellow Hollywood Vampires bandmember Tommy Henriksen posted a photo of Depp's infamous tat last week, showing the actor's changed his previously reworked SLIM-to-SCUM message to now read SCAM. He used the anarchy symbol for the 'A.' 

What's kinda creepy about it is, the tat is still fresh and the scarring makes the red ink seem like a scab. You'll recall ... Johnny already changed the OG tat -- which initially read SLIM (his old nickname for Amber) -- to SCUM in the wake of their divorce.

Anyway, it's clear Johnny's still willing to bleed over Amber -- and over his art too.

Ya gotta be committed to something to treat your body like a live, ever-changing Etch A Sketch.

Arnold and Maria Still Married After 7-Year Divorce Case

7/7/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver may get in the Guinness Book of World Records, because they just crossed the 7-year mark in their divorce case with no end in sight.

Maria filed for divorce July 1, 2011 ... this after she learned Arnold fathered a child -- Joseph Baena -- with their housekeeper.

There was never any real custody beef ... of their 4 kids, two were minors at the time -- 17-year-old Patrick and 13-year-old Christopher -- and they both quickly agreed on joint custody. Well, Christopher's now 20, so there hasn't even been a theoretical custody issue for years.

As for a property settlement ... we reported at the time there was a pot of around $400 million to split. The couple, that reportedly started dating in 1982 and married in 1986, did not have a prenup.

Sources connected to Arnold and Maria say there were bumps along the way in hammering out a settlement but, since the split is 50/50, there are no serious roadblocks.

Our sources say Arnold has not shown interest in making the divorce final. As for Maria, she's waffled ... sometimes pushing for a divorce but other times just letting it ride. Everyone we've spoken with says Arnold and Maria are not getting back together ... yet, when push comes to shove, they both seem unwilling to pull the trigger.

After 7 years, there's a real possibility the divorce isn't going to happen ... ever.

'RHOC' stars Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador have been running their mouths and spreading vicious lies about Alexis Bellino's estranged husband ... according to him, and he's threatening to sue.

Jim says both women are not only damaging him with their "morally corrupt" gossip, but could potentially harm his children.

EXCLUSIVE

Jill Scott's refusing to fork over a copy of Prince's "Purple Rain" -- and a bunch of other crap -- according to her estranged husband.

Michael Dobson filed docs in his divorce case with Jill ... asking the judge to punish her and make her hand over his Prince album along with a bunch of other personal items.

In docs, obtained by TMZ, Michael says he's been pestering her to get his belongings from their house, but can't because she changed the locks back in September 2017. He says she's also got a grip on 5 hotel robes, a massage table, a Dewalt laser level and worst of all ... an extended shoehorn!

We knew the split was nasty -- as we first reported, she requested a restraining order in February, claiming Michael had been trashing her since she filed for divorce -- but now it's shoehorn-nasty.

That's next level.
