Angelina Jolie I Don't Want Brad Prosecuted

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

0929-brad-pitt-angelina-jolie-getty-2Angelina Jolie will not cooperate with law enforcement if there's a move to file child abuse charges against Brad Pitt ... TMZ has learned.

Our Angelina sources say she's adamant ... Brad should not face criminal charges for getting physical with 15-year-old Maddox on their private jet. We're told she'll go "radio silent" if authorities make a move to build a case against her estranged husband.

We're told Angelina was forthright with the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services, telling social workers Brad struck Maddox (in the face).

Other sources say Brad did not strike his son in the face, but instead lunged at him and Angelina got in the way, causing Brad to inadvertently make contact with the boy's shoulders.

Angelina, we're told, has a singular focus ... protecting her kids, not punishing Brad.

DCFS does have the authority to recommend custody restrictions to the dependency court, although it's looking more and more like it will not reach that stage. Furthermore, given there were no injuries to Maddox and conflicting accounts of what happened, prosecution is also unlikely.

Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie Temporary Custody Deal Struck Drug Testing, Therapy

9/30/2016 9:58 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0922-brad-pitt-angelina-jolie-GETTY-01Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have agreed to a temporary custody deal that was laid down by the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services, and it involves therapists and random drug testing.

Sources familiar with the situation tell us, DCFS has made its recommendations and Brad and Angelina had 2 options ... agree or fight it out in court. We're told they both agreed with DCFS.

Here are the terms of the temporary agreement:

-- Angelina gets temporary physical custody of the 6 kids until Oct 20th.

-- Brad gets visitation, with strings attached. The initial visit is with a therapist present and the therapist then has the power to either allow Brad subsequent unmonitored visits or insist on being present whenever he's around the kids. 

-- Brad is subject to random drug/alcohol testing. As we reported, Angelina believes Brad has issues with alcohol and weed. Our law enforcement sources say Brad's first test was negative for drugs and alcohol.

-- Brad and Angelina will each submit to individual counseling. In addition, Brad, Angelina and the kids will undergo family counseling together.

We're told Angelina agreed with recommendation because her focus is to "heal" her family and her children.

We're told the agreement will only last for another 3 weeks. At that point DCFS could impose new ground rules or possibly turn the matter over to the courts.

Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt Settlement Negotiations Full Steam Ahead

9/30/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0920-angelina-jolie-brad-pitt-tmz-02Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have been in the throes of settlement negotiations almost from the start ... but it got rocky early on when Brad pulled the plug ... sources familiar with the case tell TMZ.

Our sources say both sides wanted a quick end to what could become a contentious divorce. Jolie set the stage by asking for sole physical custody after Brad lunged and made contact with 15-year-old Maddox on a private jet.

We're told when TMZ broke the story about the incident in the air, Brad felt Angelina's people leaked the story and said he was done negotiating. But our sources say shortly thereafter, negotiations resumed. 

We're told there are 4 elements to the settlement discussions:

-- Custody and visitation

-- Temporary support for Angelina and the kids 

-- Permanent financial support

-- Property split 

We're told the first 2 items are well on their way to resolution, with one big hitch. TMZ broke the story ... the L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services is investigating the jet incident, and any settlement must conform to the eventual DCFS recommendations.

Our sources say the 3rd and 4th elements have not been resolved.

Frances Bean Cobain Forced to Pay Ex While Working On Divorce

9/28/2016 4:33 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0928_Frances-Bean-Cobain_Isaiah-Silva_gettyFrances Bean Cobain is going to fork over nearly $50k in emergency relief to her estranged husband until the dust settles in their divorce ... TMZ has learned. 

A judge signed off on an agreement for Frances to pay Isaiah Silva $12,000 a month for the next 4 months. The dough is temporary spousal support to carry him over until they wrap up the divorce battle. According to the docs, Frances and Isaiah are going to mediation during the 4 month period.

Frances will also have to pay $15k toward his attorney fees. For Isaiah's part, he was ordered out of their house 10 days ago. 

The exes were married less than 2 years. As we previously reported ... he's aiming for $25k per month when it's all said and done. Mediation should be interesting. 

Tokio Hotel Guitarist Run, Run, Run from My Wife ... Files for Scheidung

9/28/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0927_tom_kaulitz_Ria-Sommerfield_getty_twitterTokio Hotel guitarist Tom Kaulitz doesn't want to love the woman who loves him back anymore -- he's calling it quits with his wife ... TMZ has learned.

Tom, the twin brother of lead singer Bill, just filed divorce docs -- obtained by TMZ -- to part ways with Ria Sommerfeld, with whom he tied the knot a little more than a year ago.

Tom's citing irreconcilable differences, and wants the judge to shut down any request by Ria for spousal support ... we're guessing he's the breadwinner.

Tom and the rest of the Tokio Hotel crew have been making hits in both German and English for years, and it looks like he might have made most of his cash well before getting with Ria last year ... when he toured a bit but didn't put out any new music.

Their letzte tag together before separating was New Year's Eve.

Mary J. Blige My Prenup's WAy More Solid Than My Marriage

9/27/2016 4:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0927-mary-j-blige-kendu-isaacs-tmzMary J. Blige wants to make it absolutely clear that her prenup is solid as a rock ... but her estranged husband begs to differ.

The singer's lawyer, Gary Fishbein, filed docs asking the judge to give her prenup the stamp of approval. She's worried because the lawyer for Martin "Kendu" Isaacs has made sounds it's not worth the paper it's written on, calling it "immensely invalid, unenforceable and unconscionable."

Mary says they drew up the prenup on December 5th, 2003 and got married 2 days later. She filed for divorce back in July and asked the judge to block Isaacs' bid for spousal support.

It's pretty simple -- she says the prenup clearly lays out who gets what. If it's thrown out ... it'll be an ugly mess.

Stay tuned.

RG3 Divorce Docs No Chance We Reconcile 'Conflict of Personalities'

9/27/2016 11:36 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0927_Robert-Griffin-III_rebecca-liddicoat_gettyRobert Griffin III is making it clear ... his marriage is dead -- claiming in divorce docs there is ZERO chance of a reconciliation.  

The Cleveland Browns QB filed for divorce from his college sweetheart Rebecca Liddicoat earlier this month -- and in court docs obtained by Bossip, RG3 spells out why he pulled the plug. 

"The marriage has become insupportable because of discord or conflict of personalities between petitioner and respondent that destroys the legitimate ends of the marriage relationship and prevents any reasonable expectation of reconciliation."

And if that wasn't clear enough, remember RG3 tatted his NEW girlfriend's name, Grete Sadeiko, on his arm to hammer the point home. 

0817-rg3-tattoo-getty-01In the divorce docs, filed in Texas, RG3 also says he wants Liddicoat to have primary physical custody of their 1-year-old daughter ... and he has agreed to pay child support. 

However, Griffin notes that he wants to be "joint managing conservators" -- which would give him shared authority to make major decisions in his daughter's life. 

So far, Liddicoat has yet to comment on the divorce.

Justin Theroux I Feel Bad for Brangelina

9/27/2016 9:56 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0927-justin-theroux-brad-pitt-angelina-jolie-tmz-01Jennifer Aniston's husband is speaking out about Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's divorce, saying he can relate to what's going on in their household right now.

Justin Theroux didn't shy away from the topic, telling Business Insider ... "As a child of divorce all I can say is that's terrible news for those children and that's all you can really say."

Justin made his comments Monday while doing media interviews to promote a movie, which is interesting because publicists usually control all the questions in that setting. So, he clearly didn't mind talking about it.

As for what Jennifer thinks about her ex's breakup, Justin added ... "It's boring to sort of comment on anything else. People are having a bad time, that's horrible."

Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie The Prenup is Clear Splitting Properties No Biggie ... But Kids Will Be

9/26/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0923_bragelina_prenup_compositeBrad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are not going to have big financial issues, because they were only married for 2 years and they might have been expecting a divorce since day 1 ... 'cause they have a prenup spelling out exactly who gets what ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to the couple tell us their prenuptial agreement is ironclad and details the specifics of their combined fortune ... a reported $400 mil.

Brangelina have 12 total properties together ... all of which they snatched up either before they were married or before they were even dating. 7 of those belong to Brad, 2 to Angie and 3 which they bought together prior to tying the knot in 2014.

It's unclear who exactly shelled out what for those 3 properties, which include a vineyard in France, a mansion in New Orleans and an apartment in NY ... but we're told the prenup makes divvying all that up simple. 

Rather than properties being an issue in the divorce, we're told CUSTODY of their kids will be where the war really plays out. 

As we reported ... Brad plans to fight for joint physical custody of their 6 children.

Brad Pitt Angelina's UN Ambitions ... UN-Safe For Our Kids!!

9/25/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0923-brad-pitt-angelina-jolie-tmzAngelina Jolie is so obsessed with becoming the head of the United Nations ... it caused major marital issues with Brad Pitt

Sources close to the couple tell us ... Brad became increasingly upset over Angelina's political ambitions ... we're told her dream is to become the top UN official ... she was never specific. Toward that end, we're told she has 2 political advisers and a "war room" to help with decisions and image.

Brad, we're told, was especially upset that Angelina had taken the kids to various war-torn countries, including Lebanon and Iraq. We're told Angelina would always make sure to bring a security team that was the best of the best on her trips ... but for Brad, it still wasn't enough.

We're told things got extremely tense when Brad and Angie argued over taking the kids to Syria to help rebuild the war torn country..

Our sources say Brad was always supportive of Jolie's solo charity work, but travels with the kids became a bone of contention for several years.

Poison Drummer Ex Wants More Cash ... Don't Talk Prenup To Me!!

9/25/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0923-rikki-melanie-rockett-tmz-myspace-01Rikki Rockett's estranged wife claims the Poison drummer completely cut her and their 2 kids off -- and she's demanding he start forking over the cash again.

Rikki filed for divorce from Melanie Rockett last year and claims he's willing to pay exactly what he owes her under their prenup. 

Melanie has fired back it's totally unfair, and as for that prenup ... she says she was pressured to sign the night before their 2008 wedding, claiming Rikki threatened to call it off if she didn't.

Rikki, who's repped by Mark Gross, calls BS, saying Melanie knew well in advance about the prenup and she's just trying to mooch off him because she doesn't want to work.  

She says she can't get a job due to a panoply of health issues ... and she truly needs the money. 

Rikki also says he's paying child support.

A hearing's set for later this month so the judge can hash it all out.

Brad Pitt Prosecution 'Highly Unlikely' in Jet Incident

9/24/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0923_brad_pitt_getty-2It's almost certain Brad Pitt will not be prosecuted for any alleged assault against his son ... so say multiple law enforcement sources involved in the case.

Our sources say, with the conflicting accounts of what happened between Brad and 15-year-old Maddox 30,000 feet above the ground, there's no way to conclusively prove Brad intentionally inflicted harm on his son. 

As we reported, there are conflicting stories about the events leading to the confrontation on the jet. Based on all of our sources we believe the most credible sequence of events is that Maddox said something to Brad that pissed him off, Brad then lunged at his son, Angelina stepped in between them and at that point there was some physical contact between Brad and Maddox.

It appears Brad made contact with Maddox somewhere in the vicinity of the shoulder area. The biggest issue -- whether it was intentional or inadvertent. It's the job of prosecutors to prove it was intentional, and we're told that would be extremely difficult.

On top of that, we're told DCFS social workers saw no evidence of injuries on Maddox ... none.

And there's more ... no one filed a police report after the incident.

Finally, our sources say these cases are particularly difficult because of the blurred line between abuse and parental discipline.

As we reported, since the incident occurred in the air, the FBI has jurisdiction, and our law enforcement sources say it's "highly unlikely" anything will come of the agency's probe.

On the other hand, the L.A. County Dept. of Children's Services has a broader scope than the FBI. DCFS will go beyond the jet incident and talk to the kids and parents about the overall living situation. 

Stay tuned.
