Selena Gomez & Miranda Kerr

When (Alleged) Eskimo Sisters Meet ...

5/7/2015 8:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Selena Gomez Miranda Kerr TogetherSelena Gomez and Miranda Kerr came face-to-face and cheek-to-cheek ... and given their history, it could have been a tad AWWK-WARD.

Quick check of the scorecard -- Gomez and Kerr allegedly hooked up with each other's exes ... Justin Bieber and Orlando Bloom ... which allegedly led to Orlando taking a swing at Justin in Ibiza last summer. They all deny the allegations.

Now cut to Wednesday in Palm Springs where Miranda and Selena seemed totally cool with each other at a Louis Vuitton event. Sure, they could be faking it ... but we've seen them hang before -- at another LV gathering.    

Overpriced leather -- bringing chicks together since 1854. 

Terrence Howard

Here's How My Ex-Wife

Extorted Me Over My Penis

5/6/2015 9:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0506-terrence-howard-michelle-howard-01

Terrence Howard says he has hard proof his ex-wife extorted him ... threatening to expose details about his genitals to the world unless he paid her handsomely. 

Terrence just filed legal docs in his spousal support war with Michelle, who got 5 years worth of support for a marriage that only lasted a year. It's way more than the norm. 

Terrence now says he agreed to pay her for 5 years because she extorted him, and he says some of it is on tape. He says while they were bickering about the amount of support he'd pay her she threatened to release naked photos and video of him unless she got what she wanted. 

In the docs filed by his attorney Brian Kramer, Terrence says he secretly recorded her saying, "I can make a good $2 million right now ... you want to see your little **** out there in front of TV?"

Terrence says he has her on tape saying she will tell every woman in the world he gave her an STD.

He says she's also caught on tape saying, "Trust me, you're f****** with the wrong person. You f***** with me way too much. I will f****** bury you deep in the ground." 

Terrence wants the judge to throw out the settlement agreement so he doesn't have to pay the balance. The settlement runs for another year, but she'd be entitled to a big chunk of his "Empire" salary, which is expected to swell for season 2.

Katharine McPhee

Touched

By Estranged Hubby

0505-katherine-mcphee-splash-02Katharine McPhee's estranged husband gave her a hand Tuesday ... a very gentle hand.

It's a stark contrast to her split with Nick Cokas, which allegedly came after Katharine was photographed sucking face with her "Smash" director Michael Morris. Katharine claimed in the documents she was already separated from Nick, but he says they were still together.

But things change ... or do they? A source close to Katharine insists Katharine and Nick had a friendly business breakfast in West Hollywood. He's still involved in her music stuff.

The source also says Katharine has a boyfriend. 

Rosie O'Donnell

Shows Up in Court

For Custody Battle

5/5/2015 11:03 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Rosie O'Donnell just showed up at a New York City courthouse to begin fighting her custody battle in front of a judge. 

Rosie wasn't talkative but showed resolve as she entered the building.

TMZ broke the story ... Rosie's wife, Michelle Rounds, claims Rosie indulges in alcohol and weed to the point she is not capable of taking care of their 2-year-old daughter Dakota ... it's a stark contrast to the various pics we've seen of Rosie and her daughter.

For her part, Rosie says Michelle is a liar whose end game is squeezing money out of her.

Michelle's lawyer will be in court, asking the judge to order Rosie to submit to random drug testing until the custody matter is resolved. Rosie is asking the judge to enforce the prenup -- which has a confidentiality clause -- and gag Michelle. 

Shanna Moakler

Selling Off $2.6 Mil Pain

In The Calabasas

5/5/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0504_shanna_moakler_mansion_launch2All it took was 7 years and a few alleged death threats, but Shanna Moakler is finally ready to say adios to the house she's shared with Travis Barker ... even AFTER they got divorced.

Sources say Moakler is looking to put distance between herself and Travis so she's selling the 5 bedroom, 6 bath crib in the ritzy Oaks neighborhood of Calabasas. Asking price -- $2.6 million. 

The couple divorced in 2008, but continued living together part-time in the Calabasas for the sake of raising their kids. We're guessing cohabitating just became too much when they were both arrested back in December for allegedly exchanging violent threats. 

We're told construction's almost complete on Shanna's new home in nearby Porter Ranch -- and Travis already has his own place in L.A.

My Wife is Loaded

She Even Has a Beemer

5/4/2015 10:46 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Rosie O'Donnell's wife does not need Rosie's money because she's got plenty of her own ... this from the mouth of Rosie herself.

As we reported Rosie's people say Michelle Rounds is a money grubber who is trying to invalidate the prenup and is making wild claims to make Rosie fold. 

But we found this clip of Rosie on Howard Stern's show in October 2011, not too long after Rosie met Michelle, when she goes on and on about how successful Michelle is and how she has her own money.

Michelle is gunning for full custody, claiming Rosie is deep into alcohol and weed. Rosie says Michelle is a liar.

Chris Martin Gwyneth Paltrow TogetherChris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow are showing the world their divorce is 100% USDAmicable ... because they spent this past Sunday together chowing down on burgers.

The Coldplay front man and Iron Man's squeeze were snapped out in L.A. together for the first time since their April divorce.   

We'd say they buried the hatchet ... but they never had 'em out.

Rosie O'Donnell's Wife

Rosie Must Be Drug Tested, STAT

EXCLUSIVE

0501_Michelle-Rounds_rosie_TMZ

Rosie O'Donnell's estranged wife wants a judge to force the famous talk show host to submit to random drug testing until their custody battle is resolved ... TMZ has learned. 

We've learned Michelle Rounds and Rosie will face off in court on Tuesday and the custody of 2-year-old Dakota is at stake. Michelle is gunning for full custody on grounds Rosie is not a present parent because of excessive use of booze and weed. Rosie says it's all a lie and a money grab.

We're told currently they have 50/50 custody. Our sources say if the judge keeps the status quo while the case runs its course, Michelle's lawyer will ask for an order requiring Rosie to submit to random drug and alcohol testing, and if the tests reveal a problem she can then ask for an emergency order.

Rosie tells TMZ, "I'm not commenting on legal issues."

Rosie O'Donnell

Wife Claims Rosie's Using Kid As a Pawn

5/1/2015 7:14 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Rosie O'Donnell's estranged wife Michelle Rounds wants to make 2 things clear ... she says she's not the one who told TMZ about Rosie allegedly regularly indulging in wine and weed, and the second thing is that it's all going to come out in court.

Rounds -- who's gunning for full custody of 2-year-old Dakota -- was leaving a drug store in L.A. Thursday night when a photog asked her about the bitter divorce.  She says she used to be intimidated by Rosie, but now she's ready for a David vs. Goliath fight.

She's also indignant about Rosie posting a pic of Dakota, asking for a vote.

Mariah Carey

Nick Cannon Diss Song ...

NOT About Nick

4/30/2015 8:32 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

You'd think Nick Cannon would be preparing for war against Mariah Carey after releasing her song, "Infinity," which seems to put him in her crosshairs, but she says it's not ... and he's buying it.

According to our sources, the song is about women in general and how some "lose themselves in their man." We're told Mariah says it is "not specifically about her relationship with Nick." 

As for the lyric that seems to say Nick doesn't have his own money, we're told Mariah was singing about men with no ambition to be successful ... doesn't seem to fit Nick.

Clearly there's no hate on Nick's side ... because he posted a photo pimping her new album.

Rosie O'Donnell's Wife

Rosie's Wine and Weed Habits

Make Parenting Too Dangerous

4/30/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0429-rosie-odonnell-michelle-rounds-getty-02

Rosie O'Donnell's estranged wife claims she wants custody because Rosie drinks too much, smokes too much and has a laissez-faire manner when it comes to raising kids. Rosie's reaction ... her wife's delusional.

As we previously reported, Michelle Rounds is seeking full custody of their 2-year-old daughter. We've learned Michelle claims in her divorce case Rosie drinks a bottle of wine nearly every night, regularly smokes weed and eats edibles, and it gets in the way of parenting.

Michelle acknowledges they have nannies, but a parent still needs to manage the help and she says Rosie is in her own world.

Michelle also claims Rosie has let their 19-year-old son throw parties where the kids all drink, which she believes is irresponsible.

As we reported, sources connected with Rosie tell TMZ Michelle is lashing out because she's pissed over the prenup she signed and is simply a gold digger who's making threats to get cash.

Michelle tells TMZ she was a millionaire before entering the marriage by investing well in the stock market adding, "I will walk away from every dime of Rosie's money if I get full custody." 

Rosie's rep tells TMZ, "This is a distorted perception of Michelle's reality.  It's sad in every way."

Rosie O'Donnell's Ex

Looks Like Someone

Is Trying To Make Rosie Jealous

4/29/2015 2:09 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

So on the same day Michelle Rounds filed for sole custody of the child she shares with ex Rosie O'Donnell, she hit the town with a smoking hot model. What are the odds???? 

Rounds was out Tuesday night at Madera Kitchen where she walked out with her arm around Carmen Ortega ... who once dated Reggie Bush and was also possibly maybe the reason Jason Derulo and Jordin Sparks split. 

We can't say Rounds and Ortega are together. In fact, a rep for Ortega says they're just working on a clothing line together -- but Rounds still went out of her way to snuggle close to Ortega for the cameras to see. 

Not that we can blame her.

Pam Anderson, Rick Salomon

Divorce Settles

Pam Scores $1 Mil

4/29/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0428_pam_anderson_rick_salomon_TMZPam Anderson is a million dollars richer today, and Rick Salomon is a lot happier ... because we've learned they got divorced.

Pam and Rick were in a nuclear battle -- he filed for an annulment, and she filed for divorce. TMZ broke the story, Pam allegedly held Rick's dog Bumblebee hostage for a week, and then launched into a tirade that he was bad at sex ... which didn't jive with various text messages she sent him.

But now we've learned Rick paid Pam just north of $1 million in return for the divorce. But Rick got something as well. Pam was challenging his Nevada residency, claiming he was a California resident who was trying to dodge taxes on a $40 million poker win. Nevada doesn't have state taxes.  

Now that they're divorced, Pam isn't contesting Rick's residency, so she's off his back.

And Bumblebee is back with him, so happy endings.

update_graphic_red_bar8:55 AM PST -- TMZ has received a joint statement from Pam and Rick ... “Public divorces can be harsh and cruel - we apologize to our families and friends for any hurt and embarrassment we have caused-we have come to an amicable agreement and are moving on. There are private and personal family sensitivities to consider and we retract any hurtful comments made in haste and distaste. We wish each other and our families well.”update_grey_gray_bar
