TV Star Giselle Fernandez
NEWSFLASH ... It's Over ... And I'm Rich
4/15/2014 4:11 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Journalist and TV host Giselle Fernandez just lost 180 pounds ... by dumping her husband after 11 years of marriage ... and according to legal docs, she's quick to point out ... she makes a fortune.
52-year-old Fernandez filed for legal separation from business exec John Farrand on Friday, citing irreconcilable differences.
And this is interesting ... Giselle is NOT asking for spousal support, saying in her docs, "I was the breadwinner." Giselle claims she typically works 40 hours a week and earns an impressive $41,667 per month.
Other fun stuff -- Fernandez claims she spends $6,500 a month on rent and $2,000 on GROCERIES.
The couple was married at their Beverly Hills home back in November 2002. They have a 7-year-old daughter, and Giselle wants joint custody.
In addition to "Access Hollywood," Fernandez guest anchored for "CBS Early Show," "CBS Evening News," "NBC Today," "NBC Nightly News," and even appeared on "Dancing with the Stars" (she didn't last long).
Johnny to Victor
There Will Be No Mutual Masturbation
From Here on Out!
4/15/2014 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Johnny Weir wrote a 5-page post-nup which is part of his newfangled reconciliation package with Victor Voronov -- and Johnny makes it clear mutual masturbation will NOT be tolerated.
TMZ broke the story ... Johnny and Victor agreed over the weekend to call off their divorce, but Victor wanted Johnny to sign a document apologizing for trashing Victor in the media and promising to keep Johnny's mom out of their relationship.
So Johnny fired back with a document of his own, which, among other things, defines the type of cheating that will not be tolerated. The document -- obtained by TMZ -- lists the following:
-- sex outside the marriage
-- oral sex outside the marriage
-- kissing or making out
-- aggressive flirting
-- mutual masturbation
-- social media/grindr/dating
And it gets better. According to the document, if either one has a situation where they're "in close range or contact with someone from our past or someone to be part of the future" ... the other can veto the contact. Johnny specifically gives an example of a figure skater he dated.
The document also requires joint STD tests every 6 months with the results being read with both in the room.
And there's a section about splitting assets if they ultimately get divorced: "Should a gift be given, i.e., the Cartier Roadster (R.I.P.), the gift belongs to you." Someone broke the watch!
And finally ... there's a section titled "Ultimatums." Johnny lists examples of Victor's ultimatums, including, "If I give you one more day to get your bank records to me, then I want to have a free f*** of anyone I want."

Perhaps this relationship isn't over until the divorce attorney sings.

Now the strings ... we're told Victor wants Johnny to sign a document agreeing to publicly apologize for all the nasty things he said about Victor. Johnny must also agree in writing that he will no longer let his mother meddle in the marriage ... and she has to keep her nose out of their finances.
We're told they were squabbling Sunday over the document ... what a shock.

in Burial War
4/11/2014 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Mickey Rooney can finally rest in peace -- his estranged wife has agreed to give up her fight to have the actor buried in a small family plot 30 miles West of Hollywood ... so he can be buried with movie legends instead.
Jan Rooney -- who separated from Mickey two years ago -- just filed legal docs, agreeing to let Rooney be buried at Hollywood Forever Cemetery, alongside film legends like Cecil B. DeMille, and Rudolph Valentino.
Jan wrote, "Despite my strong desires to be buried with my husband, I feel that I owe it to Mickey's fans to allow Mickey to be buried alongside other members of Hollywood royalty."
Jan claims Mickey had long wanted to be buried with his mother at a nearby family plot, but Mickey's lawyers have said the actor changed his tune in the wake of the couple's split ... wanting to be buried somewhere with a connection to Hollywood film stars instead.
It's unclear when the burial will take place.
11:30AM PT -- A judge just ruled that Mickey's stepson and his wife cannot attend the services, per the new burial agreement.

'Cosby Show' Star
Wife Crushes 'Cockroach'
Files for Divorce
4/10/2014 4:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The guy who played Martin's pal on TV is in the market for a new wingman -- Carl Payne's wife has filed for divorce ... TMZ has learned.
Melika Payne cites irreconcilable differences in the docs she filed last month in L.A. County Superior Court. The couple has a son, and she's asking for sole physical custody and joint legal.
Melika also wants spousal support from Carl -- who's probably best known as Walter "Cockroach" Bradley ... Theo's pal on "The Cosby Show."
Carl and Melika got married back in 1992 -- the same year he started on "Martin" -- and separated in 2012.
Small consolation, but 20-years is a pretty damn good run in Hollywood ... or just about anywhere, these days.
Master P's Wife
4/9/2014 11:34 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Master P's estranged wife is worried sick -- claiming the rap icon has abducted three of their kids over the last two months ... and is now refusing to bring them back home.
Sonya Miller just went to court to request an emergency custody order, forcing Master P to return the kids to their mom asap.
She claims Master P first nabbed 13-year-old son Hercy after picking him up from school in February, then did the same thing with their 9-year-old son Mercy in March. Around the same time, Sonya claims their 17-year-old daughter Tytyana ran off to live with her dad and won't come back.
The ex-couple also has a 14-year-old daughter named Italy, but she's still with her mom.
There's currently no court order in place regarding custody or visitation (since Sonya only recently filed for divorce) so Sonya also asked the judge to award her full physical custody ... at least for now.
As we reported, the ex-couple's divorce has been acrimonious -- Sonya claims Master P left her so destitute she needed welfare.
And she's out of luck a little while longer -- the judge denied Sonya's emergency custody request until a court hearing in July ... allowing the kids to stay with their dad.

Olympic Paycheck Couldn't Buy Me a Purse!
4/7/2014 4:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Johnny Weir appears to be way more cash strapped -- and less marketable -- than anyone thought, because reports that he made a cool million for the Winter Olympics are exaggerated 40 times over.
TMZ has obtained a draft of the contract Johnny signed with NBC. The network offered him an anemic $25,000 for the Sochi games. And get this ... NBC also wanted him to FLY COACH for the domestic flights.
Johnny's lawyer didn't even push back and make a counteroffer.
There were a few extras. NBC offered an addition $40K for Johnny to show up at 8 non-Olympic events. So the grand total for Mr. Weir was a whopping $65K.
FYI -- a Hermes Birkin 35 Pelouse Porosus Crocodile will set you back $78,000 ... and that's USED!
The Divorce Is On
And We've Been Separated For 2 Years
4/6/2014 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Rapper/pastor Mase put the word out his divorce is off and his marriage -- which has become the backbone of his empire -- is rock solid again. Problem is ... IT'S NOT TRUE.
TMZ has learned ... the divorce is FULL STEAM AHEAD. We broke the story ... Mase filed for divorce back in January and it looked really nasty. He was asking for full custody of the 2 kids he had with wife Twyla. But weeks later he dropped the divorce case.
TMZ did some digging ... and found the day after Mase filed in Atlanta ... Twyla filed for legal separation in San Diego. Mase filed his response by amping things up ... asking for a full-blown divorce.
What's more in Mase's San Diego legal docs ... he claims they've been separated since MAY, 2012. That means for 2 years Mase and Twyla engaged in a giant charade, sermonizing and selling books about marriage while they weren't really together.
The divorce is not only on ... it's super nasty. They're both asking for physical custody of the kids. She also wants spousal and child support and he's trying to shut that down.
