Jeremy Meeks Divorce from Melissa's a Done Deal

6/7/2018 11:09 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

12:14 PM PT -- According to the divorce docs -- obtained by TMZ -- the couple will share joint legal custody ... she gets primary physical custody. Melissa will have their son 70% of the time, and Jeremy will have him 30%. Both have waived spousal support. Melissa will keep the house and they both get to keep their vehicles.

As we previously reported, Jeremy's been ordered to pay $1,000 per month in child support. He also owes $12,000 to Melissa's attorney, Lisa Bloom.

The hits keep coming for Jeremy Meeks ... 9 days after his son with Chloe Green was born, he's hammered out his divorce from wife #1, Melissa.

According to docs filed in L.A. County, Jeremy and Melissa are both officially single now. The judge signed off Wednesday, but sources connected to the exes tell us their division of assets -- child support and custody agreement (they have a 9-year-old son) -- is still up in the air.

The divorce news comes just as Jeremy, aka the "Hot Felon," and Chloe announced the birth of their son, Jayden, by posting a pic of him gripping their fingers.

This also means the runway's cleared for them to get married. There are rumors they're already engaged. You've come a looooong way, Jeremy.

Kate Spade Depressed Because Husband Wanted Divorce ...

6/6/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kate Spade was extremely depressed in her last days of life, because her husband wanted a divorce ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

We've learned Andy Spade was not living at the family home ... he and Kate had separated and he was living in a nearby apartment.

Our law enforcement sources say after their interview Tuesday they were clear ... Andy wanted a divorce but Kate did not. 

It makes her suicide note particularly interesting and possibly revealing. She wrote to her 13-year-old daughter, Frances Beatrix, "Bea - I have always loved you. This is not your fault. Ask Daddy!" It's unclear what Kate meant by the words "Ask Daddy!" One interpretation is that he knows why she ended her life.

The couple married in 1994.

As we reported, Kate hanged herself in her bedroom.

Courtney Love Sued She Stalked, Threatened Me ... Says Isaiah Silva's Baby Mama

6/4/2018 5:04 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Courtney Love and Sam Lutfi's campaign of terrorizing Frances Bean Cobain's ex-husband extended to an innocent woman caught in the crossfire ... according to the lawsuit the woman just filed.

Jessica Sullivan has a kid with Isaiah Silva, Frances' ex-husband ... and, in fact, lived in the same house with Frances and Isaiah in December 2014. Once things went south between Frances and Isaiah ... Jessica claims Courtney and her manager, Lutfi, started harassing and stalking her, too.

In the docs, Jessica says they initially tried to bribe her to take Frances' side in the nasty divorce battle ... and when that didn't work they resorted to threats. Jessica says in June 2016, Lutfi called her and said, "I'll put you in the street you f**king c**t. You d**e, f**king bitch, whore."

She also claims Lutfi told her, "Your kid will be in an orphanage."

According to the docs, Courtney and Sam tried to drive a wedge between her and Isaiah, and even dragged her dog into the feud. Jessica claims they put her phone number in the free section of Craigslist to advertise her daughter's puppy. As you'd imagine, Jessica says she got flooded with calls about a free puppy.

We broke the story ... Isaiah just filed a very similar suit, accusing Sam, Courtney and others of plotting to murder him in order to regain possession of Kurt Cobain's famous guitar. 

Jessica is suing Love and Lutfi for stalking and emotional distress.

Stephen Belafonte Help, Judge ... Mel B's Trying to Get Me Killed

6/4/2018 11:16 AM PDT

Stephen Belafonte asked for immediate protection from the court because, according to him, his ex-wife, Mel B, wants to have him killed or jailed.

Belafonte filed for a temporary restraining order over the weekend against Mel B, asking a judge for protection from what he believed to be imminent threats he'd been hearing from friends ... that Mel was openly telling people she wanted him dead, or behind bars.  

Welp, Stephen took those rumors to heart -- 'cause he went running to a judge for help ... but the judge told him he didn't have sufficient evidence to warrant a TRO. He'll have a hearing to discuss the matter in length later this month.

BTW ... Stephen says in court docs, obtained by TMZ, that he's been hospitalized twice for stress, anxiety and high blood pressure ... all because of Mel B. He says the "last 12 months of my life have been a true hell" ... to be continued, we suppose.

6/4/2018 10:19 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Terrence Howard is gonna have to fork over close to $1 million in back spousal support ... that's if his ex-wife gets her way in court.

Terrence's ex-wife, Michelle Ghent, filed legal docs asking the court to make the "Empire" star cut her a check for at least $909,418 in back spousal support ... claiming Terrence has been dragging his feet since he lost an appeal about the issue back in October.

In docs, obtained by TMZ, Michelle says she's spent at least $820k in legal fees to get Terrence to pay up, so she wants him to also pony up that dough for her lawyers. What's more ... Michelle wants a judge to get Terrence to stop dodging the tab ... claiming he's essentially hiding his "Empire" money. She claims he's made almost $9.7 million for "Empire" over the last 5 years, so it's only fair he pay up.

The judge will decide how much Terrence has to pay in a September hearing. 

TMZ broke the story ... Michelle appealed and won when a judge overturned a prior ruling saying Terrence didn't have to pay spousal support.

Jermaine Jackson's Ex He Makes Up to $500k/Month ... So, Here's What I Want!!

5/30/2018 8:46 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jermaine Jackson's estranged wife says $35k per month is a fair amount for spousal support ... because she claims he's raking in way more than that every month.

Halima Rashid filed new legal docs, obtained by TMZ, asking for $35,643 per month in spousal support. She claims it's a decent amount since Jermaine's income fluctuates between $50k and $500k per month, depending on which concerts he books and other business deals. 

According to the docs, Halima makes just $600 per month, and had to sell her cars to pay her bills. She says her primary job during their marriage was being by Jermaine's side. She also says she's gotta pay for treatment on a neck injury she claims Jermaine caused during a 2015 domestic violence incident.

Worth noting, Halima got arrested after that incident, not Jermaine.

Halima also says, in the docs, Jermaine's banned her from the house they lived in together.

We broke the story ... Halima filed for divorce back in June 2016. 

'Pawn Stars' Jesse Amoroso Cobain's 'Unplugged' Guitar is Priceless ... Like Jimi's Woodstock Strat

5/29/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Pawn Stars" Jesse Amoroso says Kurt Cobain's "MTV Unplugged" guitar is a piece of rock and roll history and belongs someplace special ... in other words -- NOT with Frances Bean's ex-husband.

The guitar expert and Cowtown Guitars owner tells TMZ ... Kurt's 'Unplugged' performance with the 1959 Martin D-18E is synonymous with the '90s and as iconic as the white Fender Stratocaster Jimi Hendrix shredded with at Woodstock.

Amoroso says because Cobain played the acoustic-electric Martin -- which is already a rare guitar because only 302 were ever made -- it's basically priceless ... though he estimates it could easily fetch close to a million bucks or more at auction.

Jesse also tells us if Cobain's 'Unplugged' guitar ends up on sale, he hopes it ends up someplace where it will be appreciated ... like Seattle's Museum of Pop Culture or the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

We broke the story ... Frances Bean Cobain conceded her dad's famous guitar to her ex-husband, Isaiah Silva, in their divorce settlement after a long legal battle.

No word yet on what he plans to do with it.

Ben Affleck & Lindsay Shookus Love-In at His New $19 Mil Crib!!!

5/24/2018 2:43 PM PDT

Ben Affleck is finally moving into his new mansion, and it looks like his girlfriend, Lindsay Shookus, will be spending a lot of time there, too.

Ben was spotted rolling up to his $19.25 million Pacific Palisades home Thursday with a moving truck following close behind. Lindsay and Ben took some time to admire the real estate he scooped up last month ... before starting the unpacking nightmare.

Ha! Kidding. They've got people for that.

As we've reported, Ben started house hunting last year, usually with Lindsay tagging along.

We hear she won't be moving in with him just yet, but she is on summer hiatus from her 'SNL' producing gig -- so, it's a safe bet she'll be very familiar with this new home.

This will be Ben's first time as a solo homeowner since the divorce from Jennifer Garner -- and it's a BIG step up from the ole guest house.

Be it ever so humble, there's no place like a bitchin' $19 million home!

Britney Spears Forget More Support!!! It Was K-Fed's Idea to Have More Kids

5/23/2018 10:45 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kevin Federline made his own bed when he decided to have more children after divorcing Britney Spears, and it's not her problem that he's now strapped for cash and seeking more child support ... sources close to Britney tell TMZ.

K-Fed has asked a judge to up his $20,000 a month child support payment he gets from Britney, claiming their 2 kids enjoy a lavish lifestyle with her and all he can provide them with is a lifestyle that is relatively meager. He claims the kids go on 5-star vacations, they have every toy imaginable, a lighted tennis court, all because he claims she makes $34 million a year, while he only pulls in $3k a month.

One Britney source with direct knowledge of the situation tells TMZ, "Britney spends no more on the boys than he does. He's barely getting by because he has to support 3 additional kids and his wife and himself on funds Brit gives him for their 2 kids."

The source goes on, "The law is that both parents are to contribute to their children's support. Where is his contribution?"

Federline says his expenses are around $23,000 a month. So, when you add up his earnings and Britney's $20k a month, he currently breaks even.

Rich the Kid He Forced Me to Have 3 Abortions ... Estranged Wife Claims

5/22/2018 9:15 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Rich the Kid's estranged wife claims he attacked her numerous times and forced her to have abortions during their marriage.

Antonette Willis just filed new docs in their divorce, and in them she says the rapper got violent with her so many times ... it was common for police to be called to their house. On one occasion she says she had followed him to a hotel where he was meeting a woman -- and when he came home the next day they got into a fight.

Antonette says he grabbed her and hit her ... and things escalated when Rich's family came over, because his sister broke a window.

Rich and Antonette have 2 toddlers -- 1-year-old Queen and 2-year-old King -- but in the docs, obtained by TMZ, she says she also got pregnant several other times. She claims Rich forced her to have at least 3 abortions because he didn't want any more kids.

Antonette says she has zero income, and has been forced to move in with family back in Georgia. Meanwhile, she claims Rich has moved his new gf, Tori Brixx, into the family home in L.A.

She's demanding spousal support and child support.

On a somewhat more petty note about the lifestyle to which she'd become accustomed -- Antonette bitches that Rich would always fly first class, while sticking her in coach.
