10/20/2016 9:07 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1020-vanilla-ice-laura-giaritta-tmz-getty-01Vanilla Ice's estranged wife wants to make a clean sweep in their divorce.

Laura Van Winkle wants to keep the Wellington, FL home she's been living in with their 18 and 16-year-old daughters and she's asking for child and spousal support ... according to the divorce petition, obtained by TMZ.

In the docs, Laura says she's down to share responsibility for their minor child. She wants Vanilla on the hook for her legal fees.

She says they've been separated since 2011, confirming what our sources said when Laura filed the divorce docs Tuesday. They'd been together for nearly 20 years.

Brad Pitt First Face-to-Face With Maddox Since Plane Incident

10/20/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1019_brad_pitt_tmzBrad Pitt had his first visit in more than a month with his 15-year-old son, Maddox ... since their confrontation last month on a private jet ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected with Angelina tell us the 2 met Wednesday afternoon with a therapist present. There had been a plan in place for Brad and Maddox to reunite a while back, but we're told the therapist felt the timing wasn't right.

The sources say Brad has had visits with his 5 other kids before Wednesday, but the face-to-face with Maddox is a turning point.

As we reported, Brad and Angelina agreed to a temporary custody plan which the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services created, in which Angelina gets temporary physical custody and Brad gets visitation.

As we reported, DCFS is still investigating the airplane incident and the FBI questioned Angelina and the kids Tuesday in a fact-finding mission. Our law enforcement sources stress there is no FBI investigation ... just fact-finding.

Our Angelina sources say, even though she's headed to divorce court, she still wants their family to function with a fully involved father and mother.


Vanilla Ice Wife Files for Divorce

10/19/2016 3:23 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1019-vanilla-ice-laura-giaritta-tmz-getty-01Vanilla Ice's marriage is officially ice, ice baby -- his wife just filed for divorce after nearly 20 years together ... TMZ has learned.

Laura Van Winkle filed the docs Tuesday in Florida. They have 16 and 18-year-old daughters. Sources close to Ice tell us he and Laura have actually been separated for a few years now, and she's just making the split official.

The couple toughed it out after he was twice arrested for domestic battery ... in 2008 and 2001. 

Unclear if Ice was blindsided by Laura's filing, but he seemed pretty chipper a few weeks ago when we got a Delta employee serenading him

Angelina Jolie and Kids Interviewed by FBI

10/19/2016 12:21 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1019_angelina_jolie_fbi_tmz-2Angelina Jolie and her kids were interviewed Tuesday by 2 FBI agents ... primarily to determine where exactly the incident between Brad Pitt and 15-year-old son Maddox went down.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... 2 FBI agents paid Angelina a visit at her Malibu home and spent more than 3 hours there. Well-placed sources tell us there is not an official investigation ... the agency is in a "fact-finding" stage to determine if there's evidence to warrant an investigation.

We're told the agents wanted Angelina and the kids to walk through the incident step-by-step, but they spent a lot of time trying to pin down the location of the airplane at the time it happened.

We're told it matters if the plane was not in U.S. airspace when the argument went down. The FBI also asked numerous questions about what happened on the ground when the plane refueled in Minnesota. There's some question as to whether Minnesota officials might have jurisdiction.

Sources tell us Angelina was cooperative but her endgame is for the whole thing to just go away.

As we reported, it's highly unlikely the FBI will press the case.

Gwen Stefani & Gavin Rossdale Officially List Bev Hills Home ... For $35 Million

10/17/2016 4:03 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1018-gwen-stefani-gavin-rossdale-house-splash-01There might be a silver lining to Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale's divorce ... they'll profit more than $20 million off their Beverly Hills home if they get the $35 million asking price.

TMZ has learned Gwen and Gavin have finally listed their 7 bedroom, 7.5 bath home for $35 million ... not an uncommon price for that part of town.

They purchased the stunning 15,500 square foot pad in 2007 for $13.25 million, and tried to get rid of the property last year as a pocket listing, but it didn't seem to budge. They're now working with realtors Jade Mills and Stephen Shapiro, who were responsible for the Playboy Mansion sale. 

As for the home ... it's a modern masterpiece with an infinity pool, hot tub, gym, theater, tennis court, several fireplaces and even has an outdoor kitchen. It's nicknamed "The Summit" because it sits inside a gated community atop of a hill ... which means the place has killer views. 

It's community property ... so they'll be splitting the profits. 

Mary J. Blige Estranged Hubby Wants to See Green ... and Lot$ of It!!!

10/17/2016 1:58 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1017-mary-j-blige-husband-martin-isaacs-TMZ-INSTAGRAM-01Mary J. Blige's estranged husband is demanding a 6-figure check from her ... EVERY month, while they hash out their divorce.

Martin Isaacs filed for temporary spousal support, and according to the docs -- obtained by TMZ -- he thinks $129,319 per month is a nice, round number. His argument is simple -- Mary was the breadwinner during their 12-year marriage and got him used to their lavish lifestyle.

Martin says Mary earned anywhere from $1.5 to $5.1 million over the last 2 years. Remember, he used to be her manager ... and he points out she's currently on tour with an album about to drop. He, on the other hand, has zero income since Mary fired him shortly after she filed for divorce.

As for that prenup we told you about ... Martin believes it's bogus since he signed it without a lawyer. And he says Mary knows the prenup's BS, as evidenced by the fact she's already cut him 2 checks for a total of $85k. 

'RHONY' Star Jules Wainstein Ex Misses Payments ... May Cost Him Even More

10/14/2016 1:36 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1012_Michael_wainstein_jules_Instagram_gettyJules Wainstein has a problem with her ex -- she claims he's not bucking up the support the court ordered him to pay her.

A source close to the situation tells TMZ, the 'Real Housewives of NY' star has filed docs calling out her estranged husband, Michael, for not ponying up the $10,000 per month he was ordered to start paying last month. We're also told he hasn't paid their children's tuition or sent a dime for utilities.

Now, Jules doesn't just want the money ... she's asking the judge to find Michael in contempt, which could lead to additional fines.

Jules and Michael have had a rocky few months, starting with an argument that led to a 911 call. Michael's lawyer has claimed he doesn't have the income to make the payments, so looks like this won't be settled easily. 

We've reached out to reps for Jules and Michael, but no reply yet.

Angelina Jolie Look-alike On Dating Brad Pitt ... Ewwww!

10/12/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Being a dead ringer for Angelina Jolie does NOT give you carte blanche to go after bachelor Brad Pitt ... and Mara Teigen should know.

The model, who's blown up for being Angie's doppelganger, was out in Bev Hills when we asked if she had any thoughts about dating Brad. After all ... we know he's got a type, and she definitely fits the bill.

Check out the video -- it's definitely the first time anyone was ever creeped out about the idea of banging Brad Pitt.

Of course, Mara's already got a sugar daddy, but never hurts to have a plan B, right?



Robert Griffin III Divorce Estranged Wife Wants QB To Pay For Her Lawyers

10/11/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1010_Rebecca-Liddicoat_rg3_tmz_gettyRobert Griffin III's estranged wife wants the Cleveland Browns QB to pay for the legal team she had to hire after he filed for divorce ... TMZ Sports has learned.

Rebecca Liddicoat -- who was married to RGIII for 3 years -- filed her response to his divorce petition in Texas last week.

In the docs, she doesn't go into specifics about child custody or shared property -- but denies everything he said in his petition, across the board.

Liddicoat also says Griffin should pay for her lawyers ... probably 'cause he was the breadwinner in the relationship.

R.L. says she needs attorneys to ensure she gets her share of their assets and a fair custody arrangement for their 1-year-old daughter.

RGIII officially pulled the plug on their marriage on Sept. 7th -- and has moved on with Florida State University athlete Grete Sadeiko.

Brad Pitt FBI To Close Case Because There Ain't One

10/8/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1007-brad-pitt-TMZ_01Brad Pitt will not be prosecuted for the incident on his private jet ... in fact, we've learned there was never an investigation in the first place because FBI sources say there's no case. 

TMZ broke the story ... after the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services started its investigation into allegations Brad struck his 15-year-old son on a private jet, the LAPD was notified and turned the matter over to the FBI, which has jurisdiction.  

Well-placed law enforcement sources tell us the FBI never opened an investigation, and say the matter should never have even been referred to the agency.

The Bureau's official position is that they are still fact-gathering, though they are not calling it an investigation. Behind the scenes, we're told the case will go nowhere.

As we reported, Maddox suffered no injuries and some witnesses on the jet say Brad's contact with the boy was inadvertent.   

Sources connected with Angelina Jolie put it out there that she did not want Brad prosecuted, but the reality is ... that was never going to happen anyway.  

DCFS has interviewed family members but, as far as we know, the dept. has taken no action with respect to custody. As we reported, for now Angelina has full physical custody of the couple's 6 kids.
