I'm Officially Done with This Marriage

... Divorce Papers Filed

2/27/2015 4:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0227-rosie-odonnell-michelle-rounds-tmz-instagram-01Rosie O'Donnell filed divorce papers Friday ... 3 weeks after announcing she and Michelle Rounds were splitting.

Rosie filed in Manhattan, and in the docs she calls the marriage "an irretrievably broken relationship." The papers also reveal they have a prenup, according to People ... which first reported the filing.

In the docs, O'Donnell says they've been separated since November.

She dropped the bombshell of their break-up at the same time she first revealed she was leaving "The View."

Michelle and Rosie have been sharing custody of their 2-year-old daughter, Dakota since separating.

Wiz Khalifa

Gotcha Amber!

I Just Threw a BD Party for Our Kid

2/27/2015 11:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Wiz Khalifa Birthday PartyWiz Khalifa believes in the motto, "If you don't succeed ..." because he threw a belated birthday party for Sebastian and this time the kid showed. 

Wiz threw the bash at his home in Silver Lake Thursday. It was almost a carbon copy of the party he tried hosting last weekend, when Amber and 2-year-old Sebastian were no-shows.  

Amber was not present this time around, which apparently was just fine with Wiz. He used his custody time to bring friends and family together to celebrate the BD. 

Here's the good news ... Amber's name wasn't even mentioned, which is at least one small step in lowering the volume in what has become a super-bitter custody war.

The party was pirate-themed, so it's too bad Amber didn't show. Imagine her walking the plank.

'American Idol' Josh Gracin

Nothing to Lose in Divorce ...

But Half His Music

EXCLUSIVE

It's a good thing "American Idol" Season 2 finalist Josh Gracin is a country singer -- he just got a ton of inspiration by losing half his music rights in his divorce ... which was just finalized.

According to divorce docs ... the exes divvied up their assets, and Ann Gracin is walking with a 50% stake in 24 songs Josh recorded during their 17-year marriage.

Josh will also shell out $1590/month in alimony, and $1436/month for child support. They have four kids -- and will share custody, but there's a complication. Each has a restraining order against the other, requiring them to stay at least 25 feet away.  

Interestingly, Ann was ordered to return Josh's Glock. As we reported ... Josh was placed on a 5150 psychiatric hold after posting an apparent suicide threat on Facebook last August. Ann filed divorce papers the next month.

Josh's next album should be interesting.

Wiz Khalifa

Blunts & Strippers Do a Daddy Good

EXCLUSIVE

Wiz Khalifa Partying StrippersAmber Rose wouldn't let Wiz Khalifa throw a birthday party with their kid -- according to Wiz -- so he settled for a wild party with strippers.

According to our strip club sources -- and these photos we obtained -- Wiz was droppin hundos Monday night alongside Snoop Dogg and Ty Dolla $ign at L.A.'s Ace Of Diamonds.

We're told the crew let tens of thousands slip through the g-string adorned cracks that night.

This probably won't help Wiz win his war with Amber -- or earn him a parent of the year award.

Then again ... strippers' kids gotta eat too.

Pam Anderson & Rick Salomon

'Missing' Dog

Has Been Found, But ...

EXCLUSIVE

Pamela Anderson Dog Found
The Pam Anderson/Rick Salomon war over his beloved Rottweiler Bumblebee is almost over -- the dog's been found, but has not been reunited with Rick and his daughters just yet. 

According to our sources, Salomon's daughter Tyson and ex-wife E.G. found the dog at a Malibu pet hospital, where he has been boarded for the past five days. Pam previously booted Tyson and the dog from her Malibu home after TMZ posted a story about Rick filing for annulment. Pam had previously claimed Bumblebee was at the groomer, but that turned out to be false.

We're told E.G. and Tyson were not allowed to take Bumblebee home from the hospital because only Rick is the registered owner. Problem is ... Rick is currently working in Las Vegas. 

We're told Rick should be back Tuesday night to go collect his dog. 

As for why noted animal activist Pam would seemingly use the dog as a pawn in her battle with Rick -- we reached out to Pam for comment ... so far, no word back.

NBA's Stephen Jackson

I'm Still Bangin' My Estranged Wife

... So Call Off Divorce!

2/24/2015 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0223_stephen-jackson_renata_instagramIf you're still intercourse'n ... there's no divorce'n -- so says ex-NBA star Stephen Jackson ... who's asking a judge to throw out his wife's divorce petition because they're still knockin' boots like a married couple. 

It's one of the strangest legal docs we've ever seen ... Jackson says the judge should NOT grant his wife Renata a divorce because he believes she's just trying to score a prenup payout ... when in actuality, they're still very much a couple. 

FYI -- Jackson says Renata's payout under the prenup is based on his net worth at the time she filed for divorce in 2013  ... and since he was still playing in the NBA at the time, the payout would be significantly larger.

But in new docs filed in state court in Georgia, Jackson says he can prove his marriage wasn't dead then ... and it isn't dead now ... because he's still banging his wife on the regular.  

In fact, Stephen says he often still takes her on fancy vacations to places like the Bahamas, Cancun and Jamaica ... and presumably bangs her there too. 

Which leads to this explanation Stephen included in new court docs -- "Despite filing for divorce, [Renata] continued her relationship with [Stephen] in an effort to 'have her cake and eat it, too.'"

We can't imagine this case is going to have a happy ending for Jackson -- because if he gets his wish, he's still gonna have a pissed off wife on his hands. And if he loses, he's gonna have to cut a big, fat check. 

At least he's still getting laid.

We're So Rich ...

Divorce is Easy

Taye Diggs Idina Menzel Divorce
Idina Menzel and Taye Diggs have made it clear in their divorce settlement ... they're both so loaded they can live nicely on their own without bleeding the other dry. 

The settlement makes it clear ... each has accrued earnings and earning capacity that makes spousal support irrelevant. You don't see that much in divorces.  

Their parting of the ways seems completely amicable ... they agreed to share custody of their 5-year-old son, Walker.

Not amicable enough for you? They're also splitting all parenting costs right down the middle, so no child support either.

As previously reported, the couple has lived apart since 2013 but recently decided to pull the plug and end their 10 year marriage.

Kinda makes you want to get a divorce ... kinda.

Amber's So Cold

She Denied Our Kid His Birthday Party!

Exclusive Details

0222-wiz-khalifa-son-amber-rose-birthday-TWITTER-01Wiz Khalifa threw a big party Saturday for his son's birthday ... but the rapper says his 2 year-old never showed because ex-wife Amber Rose denied the kid a good time out of spite.

Wiz posted sad pics of the party with the caption, "only thing missing was Bash" -- referring to their son Sebastian

Sources close to Wiz say Amber was supposed to bring Sebastian to the party and they would celebrate his birthday together ... as parents.  Wiz says everyone was there and he's heartbroken the boy couldn't celebrate with civil parents.

Khalifa put Amber on blast,  saying, "ive never voiced my true unhappiness out of fear of the person I was with and what she would do to make me more unhappy of anyone knew."

Wiz goes on to champion father's rights, saying, "Standing up for all fathers who need, deserve, or can't find help," adding, "As a man, and a dad you'll feel like, 'I got this.'  But who got us?"  In other words, the system doesn't protect fathers.

022215_amber_rose_launchFor her part, Rose posted videos of their son before and after the party.

She's got way too many feuds going on.

Jeremy Renner

Responds to Divorce

What's Your Problem? It's All Black & White

EXCLUSIVE

0220_jeremy_renner_Sonni-Pacheco_getty_tmz_2
Jeremy Renner
has fired back at his estranged wife who filed for divorce, making it clear that there are no real issues, so why is she fighting so fiercely?

Renner filed legal docs in which he asks for joint custody of their kid. Sonni Pacheco is asking for primary custody, even though they've been sharing 50/50 custody of 23-month-old Ava since their split late last year.  

Jeremy also makes it clear in his papers, filed by disso-queen Laura Wasser, there's a prenup and his earnings are his and his alone. He wants the prenup enforced, and that's that.

Sonni has made a bunch of claims, including an allegation that Jeremy's house is not safe for Ava, but we're told Sonni had no complaints when she lived in the house the entire time they were married.

Sonni's legal docs also suggest Jeremy's not anteing up in the child support department, even though we're told he's been paying her since they split.

Short story ... it sounds like he's saying this is a simple divorce, but she wants a fight.

Hilary Duff

Files for Divorce

... Mike's Wild Night Was Last Straw

EXCLUSIVE

Hilary Duff Divorce

Hilary Duff has finally pulled the trigger on her marriage, filing for divorce from hubby Mike Comrie ... and it looks like Mike's wild night in Bev Hills was the tipping point.

Sources close to the couple tell TMZ ... it's NOT a coincidence Duff filed her docs a day after the Daily Mail reported Mike was drunkenly propositioning women at Mastro's steakhouse in Bev Hills.

Hilary -- who hired attorney Laura Wasser -- cites the usual irreconcilable differences as the reason for divorce. She lists the date of separation as January 2013.

In the docs, Hilary asks for primary physical custody of their son, Luca, who turns 3 next month. She wants Mike to have visitation, but sources connected with the couple say she's concerned that his partying and drinking could adversely affect their kid.

The couple has a prenup, but neither spouse is struggling in the money department. Hilary wants her earnings and other stuff to remain her stuff.

Hilary and her NHL star husband were married in 2010 and when they split Hilary's mom, Susan, said, "They're better friends than a married couple."  

Since their split they have been seen together from time to time, but now it's pretty clearly over and out.

Rick Salomon's Dog Is Fine!

But His Daughter Calls Cops

EXCLUSIVE

022015_pam_anderson_launch_v5

Pam Anderson claims the ruckus over the allegedly "missing" dog Bumblebee is all for nothing ... but Rick Salomon's family is crying foul -- and Rick's daughter got into a standoff at Pam's house.  

After a rough day that included her husband filing for annulment, Anderson went out in Bev Hills ... and told our photog the family pooch was fine, and simply at the groomer. She laughed off the idea she was holding the pup hostage. 

But sources close to Salomon tell TMZ the family went to the groomer Thursday ... and came up with no pooch. Rick's fam claims Pam is lying about Bumblebee's whereabouts. 

Meanwhile, Rick's daughter Tyson had her own issues. Law enforcement sources tell us L.A. County Sheriff's deputies had to go out to Pam's house Thursday night when Pam refused to let Tyson in to grab some of her stuff. We're told Pam never caved ... turning Tyson and deputies away. 

Bottom line ... looks like Rick and her girls will have to sue to get anything out of the house.

EXCLUSIVE

Bumblebee
the dog is MIA from Pamela Anderson's Malibu compound, and her estranged husband thinks it's all out of revenge because he filed to annul their marriage.

Sources close to the couple tell TMZ ... Pamela saw our post Thursday morning that Rick Salomon has filed for annulment in Las Vegas, claiming she defrauded him into marriage.  

We're told after Pam saw the story, Rick's daughter Tyson -- who was living at the home --  had just walked in the door and Pam ordered her to get out. As Tyson got ready to leave, she asked where her dog Bumblebee was, because the pooch was nowhere to be found.

We're told Pam told Tyson she had the dog taken to a boarding facility, but the place says they never had the dog. 

Short story ... Bumblebee's whereabouts are a mystery.
