Shelly Sterling

It Wasn't About the Money

... I Wanted to Stick It to Stiviano!

breaking news

0415_shelly_sterling_v_stiviano_TMZShelly Sterling says she didn't go after V. Stiviano for the money -- SHE WANTED JUSTICE -- and says she plans to give away every single cent she won in her crushing court victory to a charity. 

Our sources say ... Shelly was "out for blood" from the start -- and really wanted to put the screws to Stiviano for all the crap she put her family through. 

In fact, Shelly told the Associated Press ... her lawsuit was about getting even with Stiviano who had "harmed" her in so many ways.

Of course, Sterling won a $2.6 million judgment against Stiviano -- ordering her to fork over the keys to her $1.8 million condo AND $800,000 in cash. 

Sterling says she doesn't even want the money -- 'cause she's a billionaire -- and to prove it, she's giving every cent to a worthy charity.

How benevolent. 

Donald Sterling

Side Piece Ordered to Return $2.6 Mil

Donald Sterling had no right to shower V. Stiviano with lavish gifts, no matter how good of an archivist she was, because the loot he used to buy all the goodies wasn't his to give away.

A judge just sided with Shelly Sterling, concluding Shelly was still very much Donald's wife when he pulled his shenanigans -- giving V. a duplex, a Bentley, a Range Rover and a Ferrari totaling $2.6 mil.

But don't roll out the tow truck -- Shelly doesn't want the cars ... she wants the money. According to the ruling, $830k of the $2.6 mil is due in cash -- with $430k earmarked for the value of the vehicles. 

V. tried in vain to convince the judge Donald and Shelly were separated at the time she scored the goods, so he had every right to shell out the cash. The judge begged to differ, saying Donald had no right to use the Sterling money to fund V.'s lifestyle.

So the question ... how does V. make it right?   

Return, return, return. 

Dina Lohan

Hey Michael, Pay Up

... Or Get Locked Up

4/15/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0414-dina-michael-lohan-tmz-02Michael Lohan needs a ride to the bank ... because the Florida judge threatening jail time has suspended his license until he shells out more than $16k in back child support to Dina Lohan.

Sources close to Dina tell TMZ, a judge called Michael on the carpet for cruising around Boca Raton in his flashy Maserati while he owes thousands. The judge revoked Michael's passport and stripped him of his driving privileges ... until he pays up. 

We're told Michael phoned in during the hearing and promised the check's in the mail. The judge has heard that line before, and warned if the check doesn't come by April 24th, it's off to jail.

0414-CAR-SUB-WATERMARK-dina-michael-lohan-tmz-02Sources close to Michael say a deadbeat dad wouldn't buy a $50k Raptor truck for his son ... and insists he pays his kids directly because he believes Dina just spends the money on herself.  

Michael gave the judge proof he's bypassed Dina with the payments, but apparently the judge was not persuaded and ordered him to cut a check STAT. 

The Lohans definitely never disappoint.

Bobby Flay

Looking for New Home

To Cook Dinners for One

4/14/2015 8:19 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0414_bobby_flay_potential_new_pad_launchBobby Flay just gave a big clue why his estranged wife is so angry about their prenup ... because he's looking for a new place to live that costs millions and millions of dollars.

We're told Flay was on the hunt Monday for a bachelor pad in the Sterling Mason building in the Tribeca. There are 4 units available, ranging in price from $9.65 million to $24.5 million. 

The building's so fancy it has a library lounge, courtyard, a private fitness room (with yoga studio, of course), a children's playroom and, remarkably for the area, an underground parking garage. 

Flay and wife Stephanie March separated last month, and he pulled the trigger on divorce papers last week.  

He looks ... pensive.


Nick Cannon

Door Left Open for

Mariah Reconciliation

4/14/2015 6:38 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Nick Cannon is not closing the book on his marriage to Mariah Carey. Yeah, surprised us, too. 

Nick was leaving Baltaire in Brentwood Monday night when we asked him straight up if there was a chance they'd get back together.

Nick and Mariah have been on good terms since their split, hanging together with the kids as recently as Easter. But our sources have said their romantic relationship is ancient history.

So the question ... will history repeat itself? 


Stephanie March

Here's Her Recipe

for Post-Breakup Hotness

4/14/2015 6:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

One divorce, one trench coat, one killer pair of heels, mix in equal parts anger and confidence ... and you get Stephanie March out Monday afternoon in New York City.

March -- who is in the middle of a nuclear divorce with Bobby Flay -- was not in a chatty mood ... she's letting her lawyers do all the talking for now.  

As TMZ first reported, March is fuming over the prenup and Bobby cancelling her credit card.

The battle in court is still to be fought, but whatever you wanna call this  ... round 1 goes to Stephanie.

Bobby Flay

My Wife's Whining

Over a Perfectly Valid Prenup

4/13/2015 2:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0413_bobby_flay_stephanie-march_TMZWhether it's chump change or not, Bobby Flay says his estranged wife Stephanie March willingly signed their prenup so she has to live by it.

Sources close to Bobby -- who filed for divorce last week -- say the chef doesn't understand how Stephanie's lawyer can say the prenup is unenforceable and immoral since she had every right to reject it 10 years ago. After all, Bobby had been married twice before and merely tried to protect his assets and business in case the 3rd time was not a charm. 

As we reported, Stephanie gets $5k a month in spousal support plus a million bucks for rights to the house along with moving expenses.

Bobby also takes issue with Stephanie's lawyer, who claims the famous chef is trying to bully his estranged wife into a settlement. We're told Bobby is the one who feels bullied and threatened by Stephanie's lawyer who is threatening to publicly air dirty laundry, including allegations of marital infidelity.

We're told Bobby is willing to reach some sort of compromise, but Stephanie's making that difficult by continuing to attack him and his character.


Bobby Flay's Wife


He Cancelled My Credit Cards

4/13/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0412-bobby-flay-wife-divorce-TMZ-TWITTER-01Bobby Flay's estranged wife says the famous chef is a brute who's using his fortune to bully her into an immoral settlement.

Stephanie March has declared war on Bobby, who filed for divorce last week. Her lawyer fired off a letter to Bobby's attorney, expressing outrage because the chef sent Stephanie a measly $5,000 check for monthly support. TMZ broke the story, they signed a prenup in 2005 which established support at $5k a month.

Stephanie's lawyer returned the $5,000 check, along with some choice words -- "We regard the support provisions of the pre-marital agreement as unenforceable (not to mention morally reprehensible)."

It gets worse. Stephanie's lawyer says Bobby was "bullying through economic warfare" by cancelling the credit card she uses for household expenses, such as groceries and pet supplies.

And there's more. Her lawyer says Bobby's trying to pressure her into issuing a joint press release saying the split is amicable. Her lawyer says that's a lie, in no small part because Bobby's demanding she sign a settlement agreement or else she can't stay in the marital home with her sick mother.

Her lawyer ends by suggesting Bobby was unfaithful, but acknowledges he denies it. Her lawyer then says Bobby tried to sling mud by suggesting Stephanie had an affair, which she says is an absolute lie.


Bobby Flay's Wife

$5k a Month ... Are You Kidding?

4/11/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Bobby Flay Spousal Support

Bobby Flay is more than happy to pay his soon to be ex-wife Stephanie March spousal support ... thing is, she says it's chump change so she's fighting him.

As TMZ reported the divorcing couple signed a prenup when they married in 2005. Sources connected with the couple and familiar with the situation tell TMZ ... the prenup provides Stephanie gets $5,000 a month for 5 years.

We're told the "Law and Order: SVU" star is incredulous because her camp believes Bobby's net worth is north of $20 million, and Stephanie believes she was an important part of his success.

And there's something even more galling to Stephanie. We're told the prenup provides Bobby -- who filed for divorce Friday -- the marital house, valued at around $8 million. The prenup only requires Bobby to pay her $1 million to buy her out of the house. She also gets $50k so she can pack up her stuff and move.

Our sources say Stephanie's lawyers are challenging the prenup, and they're negotiating with Bobby's legal team. The likely outcome is a settlement where she'll get something more than what the prenup provides.

Khloe Kardashian

Divorce Case To Be Dismissed

4/10/2015 10:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Khloe Kardashian has been told to get off her ass in her divorce from Lamar Odom, or the case will be dismissed, and it looks like that's exactly what's about to happen.

A document was just filed by the court in Khloe's divorce, saying she has not gotten off the dime and unless she files paperwork to seal the deal in the divorce case or the whole case will be thrown out.

Khloe filed in December 2013 and Lamar never responded. She had a right to go to court and get a default divorce judgment, but she hasn't done it. In fact, sources connected to the Kardashian family tell us she just doesn't want to deal with the divorce and won't take any action.

It's become a problem, because our sources say the house Khloe and Lamar owned was sold more than a year ago for $5.5 million and the business people don't know what to do with the money because the divorce is in limbo.

So now the court has made it clear ... if Khloe doesn't file papers to make the divorce final, she will stay married to Lamar and the divorce case will be dismissed ... as early as the end of April.


Bobby Flay

Files for Divorce

Wife Skewered by Prenup

4/10/2015 6:43 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0409_bobby_flay_stephanie-march-tmz2Bobby Flay has pulled the trigger and filed for divorce, TMZ has learned, and we're told their prenup has already become a major bone of contention. 

Bobby says in his legal docs his 10 year marriage to Stephanie March has "broken down irretrievably." TMZ broke the story the couple separated 3 weeks ago.

Turns out they signed a prenup when they married back in 2005 and we're told it really favors Mr. Flay. Our sources say it was signed in 2005, when Bobby was already a multi-millionaire and Stephanie was a mid-level actress.  

They have no kids together, so we're told they're squabbling over property. We're told she's mighty unhappy with the prenup.

Sources connected with Bobby say he's "heartbroken" the marriage has come to an end, but still cares for Stephanie.


Khloe Kardashian

Tells the World ...

I'm Still an Odom

4/10/2015 6:27 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0409-khloe-kardashian-odom-instagramKhloe Kardashian got a present from the Armenian people -- a certificate giving them a plot of land  -- and it's interesting that she's referred to as "Odom" yet she had no problem displaying it to the world. 

It appears the certificate was created by residents of a high-end housing community in the country, where Khloe and Kim are touring. It appears the residents gave the Kardashians a piece of earth.

The certificate refers to Kim as Kimberly Kardashian West and Khloe as Khloe Kardashian Odom.

As you know, Khloe filed for divorce a year-and-a-half ago. No big deal the certificate reads "Odom," but it got our attention that she posted a photo of the certificate on her Instagram and wrote, "Kourt and Rob we got you a souvenir!!!!!! Land in Armenia!!!"

She had to know she was referred to as Odom, and apparently she cared, because Khloe deleted the post.

Khloe's divorce has been stalled for months.  There's been no activity and no explanation.
