'Crash' Director Paul Haggis Divorce Has Me Writing More Checks Than Movies

5/5/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

504-tear-paul-haggis-tmz-gettyOscar winner Paul Haggis finalized his divorce, but his now ex-wife will continue reaping the benefits of his success.  

The "Crash" director reached his divorce settlement with Deborah ... and according to the docs, he'll pay her $20k a month in spousal support. The exes have a 17-year-old son, and Paul will pay another $5k per month for child support, and foot the bill for the kid's schooling -- high school and college.

Michael Strahan Blindsided by Ripa Taking Divorce Cheap Shot

4/29/2016 9:57 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

The gloves are off ... and Michael Strahan got that message loud and clear when Kelly Ripa dropped an unscripted jab at him over divorce, TMZ has learned. 

Sources connected to production tell us Ripa's intro to a segment about divorced couples was a total shock to Strahan. If you missed it -- Kelly innocently turned to her co-host and said, "So, you've gotten divorced ..."

We're told the look of shock on his face was 100% authentic.

Of course, both Kelly and Michael knew they were doing the segment, but we're told he had NO IDEA she was going to raise his divorce as part of it. If it looks like a cheap shot, that's exactly how Michael and others on set took it ... according to our sources.

Strahan played it off on the air this time, but these last 2 weeks -- before he jumps to 'GMA' full-time -- are gonna get interesting.

Master P Cut Me a Break, Judge ... My Ex Wants to Be a Stripper

4/27/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0419-master-p-tmz-01Master P's got his own set of 99 problems and wants the judge to know about ALL of them -- including his sick attorney, his freeloading ex and her plans to start stripping. 

P's divorce war with Sonya Miller is still dragging on, and he recently filed a laundry list of excuses for missing a recent hearing. In the docs, Master P includes an email from his attorney's office informing him his lawyer was laid up in a hospital with an unspecified "medical emergency."  

He's also dealing with his wife's landlord, who says Sonya jacked some furniture when she bolted out of the house. Master P's stuck in the middle because he's footing the bill, but he agrees with the landlord that Sonya's "actions are irresponsible, disrespectful and unacceptable." 

And then there's Sonya's potential new job. In the handwritten docs Master P says, "My ex needs help, she told the kids she want to be a stripper."

It's unclear if the judge bought any of this, but it's more entertaining than the dog eating his homework.

He says she bought an Aston Martin and a Ferrari. And it doesn't stop there. She's had expensive plastic surgery, buys crazy expensive jewelry and even bought her mom 2 homes.

0422_rachelles-plan-instagramAnd get this ... he says even though his current net worth is $35 million, Rachelle -- a former Jerry's Famous Deli waitress -- gives him a paltry stipend of $300 a month while he serves 19 years to life for Clarkson's murder.

The 76-year-old is asking for a divorce, citing irreconcilable differences. He also wants his daughter to control his fortune.

Gwen Stefani Divorce Gavin Didn't Get My Music ... Or My Fashion Line

4/20/2016 12:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

42016-gwen-gavin-tmzShe got No Doubt, he got Bush ... that's how the music rights were split up in the Gwen Stefani, Gavin Rossdale divorce ... which means she got a lot more than him. 

We broke the story ... Gavin agreed to take way less than he was entitled to in their split -- most likely to try and keep things amicable after 13 years of marriage. 

Rossdale COULD have fought for 50% of everything Gwen made during their union -- but opted to let her keep various assets she acquired.

In addition to her music, Stefani also gets 100% control over her wildly successful fashion lines L.A.M.B. and Harajuku Lovers. 

Stefani agreed to put 25% of the profits from L.A.M.B. in a trust ... presumably for the benefit of their kids.

As for real estate, Gwen gave up her rights to any of their property in Europe -- where the couple had 4 homes. She does get 50% of the profits from the sale of their Bev Hills house ... and also full control over 2 other L.A. homes. 

Neither of them gets child support or spousal support -- instead, they created an expense account for the kids in which they each sunk $1 MILLION. 

The also agreed to joint physical and legal custody of their 3 kids.

Gwen Stefani Gets Off Easy in Divorce ... Thanks to Gavin

4/14/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0413-stefani-rossdale-tmz-tear-02Gwen Stefani got a BIG break in her divorce, thanks to Gavin Rossdale, because we've learned he's now on record with the judge walking away from millions of dollars to which he's legally entitled.

Gwen and Gavin have struck a settlement which was just filed with the court. Sources connected with the couple tell us Gavin has agreed to a lopsided split of property in favor of Gwen.

TMZ broke the story, the couple -- married for 13 years -- did not have a prenup, so under the laws of California Gavin was entitled to 50% of everything acquired during the marriage. Our sources say Gavin did not press to get a big chunk of the money Gwen made from concert and record sales.

We've also learned the couple agreed to a 50/50 joint custody arrangement, although Gavin will end up with more than 50% custody of their 3 kids because of Gwen's touring schedule.

And we've learned, Gavin is not asking for child support, even though he could have pushed for it and Gwen -- who has significantly more money and earning capacity -- would have been on the hook.  

All that's left is for the judge to sign off on the settlement, which is just a formality.

Megan Fox Yep, I'm Pregnant But Divorce Still On

4/13/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0412_megan_fox_Brian-Austin-Green_TMZ-2Megan Fox is pregnant and estranged husband Brian Austin Green is the father, we've learned ... but we've also learned she has no plans to drop her divorce.

Sources connected to the couple tell us the pregnancy just kinda happened ... it wasn't planned. As we reported, Megan and Brian have been close even after she filed her legal docs last August ... and now we know just how close.

There would be big consequences by pulling the divorce. Megan's the breadwinner, so all the money she's earned since her separation is hers, including the loot for her latest 'Ninja Turtles' flick. 86ing the divorce would change all that.  

There are also consequences by not withdrawing the divorce petition. Brian will almost certainly be entitled to more child support for the 2 and soon-to-be 3 kids.
