Scarlett Johansson filed to divorce Romain Dauriac ... her husband of just over 2 years.

Scarlett filed divorce docs in NYC on Tuesday, and she's asking for primary custody of their daughter, Rose ... according to the NY Post.

Romain reportedly plans to fight for custody of Rose ... which could set up an ugly court battle. He's French and his attorney told the Post he plans to move back there.

There's been speculation for months about their marital status. Scarlett announced early this year they had actually separated last summer -- but then they were photographed together in January, and seemed ... congenial.

We've reached out to Scarlett's reps ... but no word back.

Joe Biden's Daughter-in-Law Kathleen Divorce Docs She Kicked Him Out of the House

3/2/2017 10:25 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0302-kathleen-biden-hunter-biden-divorce-getty-01Joe Biden's daughter-in-law, Kathleen, has filed for divorce ... but long after she told her husband to leave the family home.

In the docs, obtained by TMZ, Kathleen claims she and Hunter Biden formally separated in October 2015, and they've been living separately ever since. She says in legal docs she asked him to leave July 5, 2015, "due to his conduct the night before." The docs go on to say they had a prior agreement, if he engaged in the conduct in question he would leave.

She doesn't describe the "conduct," but does say it "creates situations that are unsafe or traumatic for the parties' children, and his judgment is frequently impaired."

She also says in the docs ... Hunter spent lavishly on his own interests including, "drugs, alcohol, prostitutes, strip clubs, and gifts for women with whom he has sexual relations." Kathleen says his habits have depleted their funds available to pay legitimate bills -- and adds they've maxed out credit cards, have double mortgages on 2 properties, and more than $300k in unpaid taxes.

Kathleen wants their temporary spousal support to be $20k per month for herself, and $5k per month for Hunter.

The October filing date is significant because the separation occurred just 2 months after stories surfaced Hunter was allegedly caught up in the Ashley Madison scandal ... something he denied.

The divorce docs were filed last December. Hunter is now involved with Hallie, the widow of his brother, Beau, who died in May 2015 from brain cancer.

She's asking for sole physical and legal custody of their 1 minor child. They have 3 kids, and 2 are adults.

He's asking for joint physical and legal custody.

T.I. & Tiny Divorce Dead in the Water ... For Now

3/1/2017 10:56 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0301_ti_tiny_tmz-2T.I. and Tiny are creeping closer to reconciliation -- or at least NO divorce status -- because she forgot to do one very important thing when divorcing someone.

A hearing in the divorce was scheduled Wednesday morning in Georgia, but TMZ has learned the matter was taken off calendar when the court discovered T.I. had never been served with divorce papers. Remember ... Tiny filed way back on Dec. 7.

It's not like she had trouble locating T.I. -- we know they've been together several times in recent months -- including the holiday season. He even admitted they did Valentine's Day together.

At this point, if Tiny wants to move forward, she'll have to file proof T.I. was served.

The lack of progress in court confirms what we've heard from sources close to the couple -- they're just nowhere near getting divorced.

T.I. & Tiny We're Still Doing Reality Show! Big 'D' Drama Too Good

3/1/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0228-ti-and-tiny-TMZ-01T.I. and Tiny's reality show was on the brink of death -- much like their marriage -- but it's their divorce that's giving the show at least one more season ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to "T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle" tell us VH1 is bringing the series back for a sixth season that will focus on the estranged couple's efforts to co-parent in the aftermath of Tiny filing for divorce.

We're told the network met with producers about canceling the show, even though Tip and Tiny wanted to keep cameras rolling. Producers convinced VH1 execs the relationship drama could bring in a huge audience, and boom -- the show was saved.

While they shot most of season 5 separately, our sources say they'll be together more often next season. We're told things are still strained for sure, but Tiny's in no rush to finalize a divorce.

Tip said as much Tuesday when he slipped about where he was on Feb. 14.

0228_Cynthia-Blaise_Keegan-Michael-Key_getty_tmzKeegan-Michael Key's estranged wife says his ending of their 17-year marriage was so unexpected, it's causing her serious health problems ... in addition to leaving her in financial ruin.

0227-ralphie-may-lahna-turner-tmz-01Ralphie May's estranged wife says he's sexually abusive, suicidal, and so drug-addled he can't be alone with their kids ... according to court docs.

Turner requested a restraining order, which was only partially granted. The judge denied her request for Ralphie to stay 100 yards away, but he is barred from harassing her.

We now know why Jose Fernandez's marital status was listed as divorced in his death certificate -- he wasn't even old enough to drink when he got married back in 2012.

According to court records ... the marriage lasted only 18 months.

According to a Tampa Bay Times article ... Jose and Alejandra met while still in high school.

Darius McCrary My Wife's Just Out for My Money ... Blew Her Hoops Career

2/22/2017 9:20 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0222_darius-mccrary_tammy-brawner-tmz-instagram-2Darius McCrary is firing back at his wife over her abuse claims ... insisting he's a loving father, and she's nothing more than a gold digging, failed ex Harlem Globetrotter.

The former "Family Matters" star says Tammy Brawner lied when she stated in legal docs he was repeatedly abusing her and their infant daughter. McCrary's attorney Glen T. Jonas tells TMZ, Brawner "is no victim ... she is a predator motivated by a desperate desire to extort money out of Mr. McCrary while trying to create an advantage in an impending divorce and custody battle."

TMZ broke the story -- Brawner, a former Globetrotter, got a restraining order against McCrary, and in the docs she accused him of striking her and getting violent in front of their child earlier this month.

McCrary's attorney says Darius "is a loving, devoted and dedicated father. [Tammy's] allegations are such obvious and outlandish lies ... we are all dumber for having read them."

The scorching response to Brawner's allegations included a deep dig at her career -- "Having floundered after being fired by the Globetrotters she apparently will say anything for a bit of media attention and a glimpse of the spotlight."

McCrary must stay 100 yards away from Brawner and their daughter, at least until a hearing next month.

NFL's Emmanuel Sanders Blew A FORTUNE On Sidechicks ... Furious Wife Claims

2/20/2017 12:45 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0215_emmanuel_sanders_gabriella-sanders_tmz_instagramThe estranged wife of Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders has declared WAR on the NFL star -- claiming he lied, cheated and spent THOUSANDS on chicks he was banging on the side. 

It's all in ANGRY court docs filed by Gabriella Sanders -- who blasts the father of her 2 children with a metaphorical bazooka right from the get go. 

"When he's not playing football on the field, he 'plays the field' with numerous women whom he is or has committed adultery."

Gabby lays out multiple marital "atrocities" allegedly committed by her husband -- and claims he spent "thousands upon thousands of dollars on girlfriends and wasting the community estate, even purchasing a vehicle for one of his illicit affairs."

The allegations are strikingly similar to those of Shelly Sterling -- who claimed her husband Donald Sterling had no right to give $2.6 mil in gifts to V. Stiviano. She sued V and won. V was ordered to reimburse the Sterling estate.

Gabby filed for divorce from Sanders back in October and in the new court docs filed in Texas she says there is ZERO chance of a reconciliation. 

Emmanuel signed a $33 mil extension with the Broncos back in Sept. -- with $27 mil fully guaranteed.

But there's more ...

Gabby also claims Emmanuel lied to the Broncos -- claiming he told the team he needed to miss a practice in Nov. so he could be in Houston for the birth of their child ... which was a a lie so he could go out partying. 

We reached out to Emmanuel's camp for comment -- so far, no word back.
