Mel B I'm Not Paying My Ex $4k/Month to Eat! Tell Him to Get a Job

6/22/2017 5:30 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Mel B's drawing a line when it comes to footing the bill for her estranged husband's food, clothing and cell phone habits ... calling his "wish list" a pipe dream.

Mel filed docs shooting holes in Stephen Belafonte's request for emergency spousal support. For instance, she says the $4,300 for food and groceries he wants comes to $140 per day, or as she puts it ... a week's worth of food for a typical family of four.

She's also not down with his $2k monthly clothing allowance ... since she says he took his full wardrobe when he moved out of their house. Ditto for his $11k per month on housing -- she points out, he's just staying with friends.

Belafonte also needs a new cell phone plan, according to Mel. In the docs she scoffs at his asking for $750 each month ... calling it an "exorbitant" cost for ONE phone. She's got a point.

As for him crying poverty -- Mel says if he's working full-time at Serafina, and not making a dime, he "should get a job at a different restaurant." Mind you, Stephen and Mel are co-owners of that joint.

Meanwhile, Mel was in court Thursday to deal with her restraining order against ex-nanny, Lorraine Giles. The judge threw out the order because Giles was never personally served.

Serena Williams' Dad Dangerous & Gun-Obsessed ... Wife Claims

6/16/2017 7:24 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The estranged wife of Serena Williams' father says she had to remove an "arsenal of firearms including an AK-47" from their home in fear he could harm her or their 5-year-old kid.

Lakeisha Juanita Williams has filed explosive new court docs in her divorce from Richard Williams -- her husband of 7 years -- claiming he's been acting "erratic and hostile" and she's afraid.

Richard initially filed for divorce last month accusing Lakeisha of being an alcoholic and stealing money -- allegations she adamantly denies in her response, obtained by TMZ Sports.

In fact, 38-year-old Lakeisha claims she's been essentially raising their child on her own because 75-year-old Richard refuses to get involved. She says school officials, teachers and doctors will corroborate her claims.

Lakeisha also says he's afraid Richard will go all "scorched Earth" on her to retaliate for airing their issues in court. She claims Richard will essentially cut her off financially.

As for the guns, Lakeisha says they have been "safeguarded" and are available at the court's request.

Richard Williams is divorcing his wife and accusing her of jacking social security checks and forging his signature to steal property right out from under him. 

Venus and Serena's 75-year-old dad filed docs in Florida to split from 38-year-old Lakeisha Williams, but the divorce is almost overshadowed by what he claims she's doing, as first reported by Daily Mail.

In the docs, Richard says his wife of 7 years has forged his name on a deed to transfer one of his houses to herself ... as well as cars. He also believes she's taken his social security checks.

They have a 5-year-old son together, and Richard thinks Lakeisha's lifestyle endangers the child. According to the docs, she's now living with someone who has "serious criminal, felony charges pending." He also accuses her of taking his guns, and being an alcoholic.

Lakeisha's attorney, Sandy Becher, tells TMZ Sports ... "All of the allegations are false and will be proven to be false when we litigate the case in court," and adds ... Richard is just trying to avoid paying child support and alimony.

Kevin Dillon's Wife Settles Divorce After Nasty Battle

6/10/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kevin Dillon has settled his divorce case, and no one even knew he was getting divorced.

Jane Stuart filed a divorce petition last July ... asking a judge to end her 10-year marriage to Kevin, but the docs got buried in the system.

Turns out they had a big issue ... she claimed they separated May 29, 2016, but the "Entourage" star fired back the date of separation was October 2008. It's hugely significant, because once they separated all future "Entourage" money was his, and his alone.

She also said Kevin kept her in the dark on finances from day 1 of the marriage, and she also claimed he under-reported his earnings to the court to keep his support payments low. She believed he made more than $16 million for "Entourage."

As with most of these cases ... it settled before going to trial. Last month Kevin agreed to pay Jane $3,174 a month in child support for their 11-year-old daughter, and she gets $7,214 in monthly spousal support.

Nasty Gal/#Girlboss Author Divorce Final Pays Ex a Pittance

EXCLUSIVE

Nasty Gal founder Sophia Amoruso is officially single again, and it hardly cost her anything.

We've learned a judge just granted her a divorce from Joel Jarek DeGraff. The couple was only married for a year, and they had an ironclad prenup before marrying in June 2015.

Sophia, who is repped by disso queen Laura Wasser, will pay DeGraff $30,000. In return, DeGraff agreed to waive spousal support. She also paid him $18k for rent on his new pad.

DeGraff gets to keep his 2014 Volvo, and that's about it.

Sophia, who also wrote #Girlboss, created Nasty Gal before the couple married, so that money was always off the table. The prenup kept all of her earnings separate.

Girl boss to the core.

Keshia Knight Pulliam Broke Custody Deal to Be with Cosby ... Her Ex Claims

6/9/2017 9:23 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Keshia Knight Pulliam's decision to escort Bill Cosby into his sexual assault trial was not only selfish, it violated a court order in her child custody agreement ... according to her ex himself.

In new legal docs, Ed Hartwell says he only gets to see their daughter, Ella Grace, for one hour twice a week, but Keshia traveled out of state with her to be by Cosby's side on day 1 of the trial. Hartwell says she trampled his visitation rights because he was supposed to get Ella on Tuesday, but apparently Keshia was still out of town.

Hartwell says Pulliam's in contempt and wants a make-up visit with his girl, pronto. He also wants her to cover all court and lawyer fees for this. Of course, Keshia recently called out Ed, claiming he's behind on child support payments.

The saga continues.

Mary J. Blige Ordered to Pay Spousal Support Way Under $129k/Mo.

6/8/2017 9:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Mary J. Blige is gonna have to cough up some emergency relief dough to her estranged husband while their divorce plays out, but he's gotta be disappointed by how much he's getting.

A judge has ordered Mary to pay Martin Isaacs $30,000 per month in temporary spousal support. Big number, no doubt, but way less than what he requested ... $129,319 per month.

The court found Martin was entitled to some dough to accommodate the standard of living he was used to while married to Mary, but also decided his dream number was unreasonable. 

Mary will also have to pay retroactive spousal support dating back to September ... and his attorney fees -- that comes to $235k.

One last interesting note ... the court says Mary and Martin were living beyond their means during their marriage and still have millions of dollars to pay back in taxes.

Mel B Belafonte's Pockets Can Wait ... Support Ruling Delayed

6/7/2017 3:54 PM PDT

Stephen Belafonte's complaints about being broke as a joke fell on deaf ears, as the judge pushed off a decision on how much, if any, spousal support Mel B should pay.

As we reported, Belafonte says he's on hard times -- making zero dollars, running up credit card debt ... and desperately in need of cash flow. He got no sympathy from Mel's attorneys who requested a continuance on the money ruling.

Mel's team argued it's premature to talk money because she's incurred expenses related to the restraining order she has against him, and Stephen might end up having to cover some of that bill.

The judge agreed and pushed the hearing to the end of the month.

Meanwhile, Stephen wanted to change the location where he has monitored visits with their daughter. He complained photogs were getting shots of her. The judge delayed that hearing until next week.
