'CSI' Star George Eads Nasty Custody Battle Brewing In Divorce

11/2/2015 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1028-george-eads-monika-casey-tmz-twitter'CSI' star George Eads will face off with his soon-to-be ex-wife over the custody of their one-year-old daughter in an ugly divorce. 

Eads filed divorce docs against Monika Casey ... the two have been married for 4 years. Eads wanted joint physical and legal custody of their daughter Dylan. However, Monika is asking for sole physical custody of the kid. 

The two disagree on more than just custody of their daughter. Eads claims the two had a prenup but Monika doesn't mention it. In fact ... she's asking for spousal support. 

They cite irreconcilable differences as the reason for the divorce ... the two appeared on an episode of "Flipping Out," but no word if a rough home remodel led to the split. 

Halle Berry Ringing In Post-Divorce Hotness With A Trip To ...

10/29/2015 1:28 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1029_halle_berry_divorce_ring_x17_2Halle Berry is suffering after her divorce ... from some serious post breakup HOTNESS!!!!

Halle surfaced Thursday afternoon for the first time since filing for divorce from French hubby Olivier Martinez.  

So where was the "Extant" star headed? ... Starbucks? Pick up her kids? Divorce lawyer?

None of the above ... Halle stopped by the office of LA City Council President Herb J. Wesson, Jr. who's been working with the actress to bring awareness to the Jenesse Center, South LA's oldest domestic violence program.

BTW … Halle hasn’t ditched the ring on her wedding finger. 


Olivier Martinez I Will Not Start a Custody War with Halle

10/29/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1028-martinez-berry-tmz-getty-02Olivier Martinez will not wage a custody war with Halle Berry, sources connected with the couple tell TMZ ... because he does not want to go through with the savagery he witnessed between Halle and Gabriel Aubry.

We're told Olivier was horrified by the bitterness between Halle and Gabriel, and the toll it took on their daughter Nahla. He's satisfied with joint custody of their 2-year-old son, Maceo, and we're told Halle is also down with that. 

We're also told Olivier has no intention of moving to France and starting a Kelly Rutherford/Daniel Giersch type international war.  

It's lucky for Halle, because she wanted to move Nahla to France, and tried unsuccessfully to convince a judge it was a better place to raise kids than the U.S. 


Olivier Martinez Shoeless Hubby Comes Home For 10 Minutes

10/28/2015 2:44 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1028-olivier-martinez-inf-02Olivier Martinez rolled up to the last place anyone would think to see him Wednesday PM ... the home of his soon-to-be ex-wife Halle Berry.

He wasn't there picking up a pair of old shoes either ... he resurfaced 10 minutes later and drove off.

They have filed dueling divorce cases this week, each claiming to be the petitioner.  

As we previously reported, Berry's lawyer filed a second divorce petition hours before this picture was taken ... this time using their real names.  

Halle Berry Files for Divorce From Olivier ... AGAIN!!!

10/28/2015 1:23 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1027-berry-martinez-tmz-getty-03Halle Berry is done playing court games ... she's filed for divorce for a second time this week, and this time around she used real names, not aliases.

TMZ obtained a copy of the new docs, filed Wednesday. Halle lists her real name and Olivier Martinez's as well. You'll recall, TMZ broke the story Halle filed her first divorce petition Monday using the alias Hal Maria.

She also gives her son's real name -- Maceo. In the first petition, she listed him as Mac Martin.


1028_halle_first-rip-SUB-1The specifics in the document are identical to Monday's filing ... she's asking for custody based on the "best interests" of 2-year-old Maceo.

There's a prenup that keeps all of her money separate from his, and vice versa.

As we reported, Olivier filed his own divorce petition Tuesday, so now Halle has made it clear she wants to be the petitioner and NOT him. So a fight seems to be brewing.


Halle Berry Divorce Alias ... Hal Maria vs. Oliver Martin

10/27/2015 4:26 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Halle Berry's divorce petition went under the radar, because she didn't use her real name, and now a legal fight is brewing over who's divorcing who.

TMZ obtained the docs Halle filed Monday ... one day before Olivier Martinez filed his own divorce petition.

Halle gives her name as Hal Maria. Hal is obviously short for Halle, and Maria is her middle name. We're told she did it for privacy reasons. 

Olivier Martinez is listed as Oliver Martin.

Halle's lawyer, Steve Kolodny, even listed their 2-year-old son Maceo as an alias -- Mac Martin.

As for whether filing under an alias is legal or not, it's somewhat unclear, and a judge may have to decide if Halle's petition is legit or if Olivier becomes the petitioner.

We do know this ... Halle did not properly serve Olivier ... she just handed him the documents, which she's not allowed to do. Under California law, a party to an action can't serve the other party.

One interesting thing in Halle's divorce document ... as we reported, the couple has a prenup, and now we know the document provides that each party is entitled to the earnings they made during the marriage ... at least according to Halle.


Olivier Martinez Files for Divorce Against Halle ... The Plot Thickens

10/27/2015 3:09 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Halle Berry divorce documentsOlivier Martinez has just filed for divorce against Halle Berry, TMZ has learned ... and the plot is thickening.

TMZ broke the story Halle filed for divorce Tuesday morning, but the divorce petition is nowhere to be found in the system. A source connected to Halle tells us it was filed under pseudonyms.  

Apparently Olivier doesn't think fake names are kosher, so his lawyer, disso queen Laura Wasser, has just filed for divorce listing Olivier as the petitioner.  

As for why being the petitioner is important, in Hollywood it matters who left who.  

Olivier's asking for joint custody of the couple's 2-year-old son, Maceo. As we reported, they have a prenup so money will not be an issue.

We're told Olivier and Halle have not been getting along and last week was a breaking point, after an LAX employee sued Olivier for pushing a car seat into his chest. He also named Halle and we're told she went nuclear on Olivier saying he's responsible for her bad publicity.

We're told Halle and Olivier had a fundamental personality clash. She is "very difficult" and "goes nuts when she doesn't get her way," and Olivier has a temper, though not violent toward her. It was a bad combo.


Halle Berry, Olivier Martinez Divorcing

10/27/2015 9:31 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Halle Berry filed for divorce from Olivier Martinez ... TMZ has learned.

We're told Halle cited irreconcilable differences. As for money, we're told it's not an issue because the couple had a prenup.

A source close to the couple tells us, "They have a personality difference." And the incident at LAX, where Olivier hit a guy with a car seat, exacerbated their conflicts. Olivier got sued for the incident last week and our sources say the couple argued about the suit, and it became a breaking point.

One source tells us the 2 year marriage went into a tailspin a week ago ... to the point each of them had it with the marriage, but Halle filed first. 

Another source said, "They're just very, very different people. He's a very macho guy, and things just didn't jive."

The couple issued a joint statement ... "It is with a heavy heart that we have come to the decision to divorce. We move forward with love and respect for one another and the shared focus for what is best for our son. We wish each other nothing but happiness in life, and we hope that you respect our, and most importantly our children's privacy, as we go through this difficult period."

They have one child together, Maceo, who is 2 years old. Halle also has a daughter, Nahla, from a previous relationship with Gabriel Aubry. 

Our sources say Halle is not asking for joint or primary custody, but rather what is in "the best interests of the child."

We're told the expectation on Halle's part is for a quick, non-contentious divorce.


'Saved By The Bell' Star My Husband Had No Right to Tape Our Sex

10/27/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0615-lark-voorhies-husband-TMZ-GETTY-01"Saved By The Bell" star Lark Voorhies is gearing up for a fight over what appears to be a sex tape with her estranged husband. 

Jimmy Green is bragging to us he has a homemade tape and is angling for a big sale to the highest bidder.

Lark doesn't deny a tape exists but she tells TMZ if he recorded it he did so surreptitiously ... she says she had no idea.

Jimmy begs to differ, telling us she was on board from the get-go, and she can't change her mind now.

Lark filed for divorce last week citing "irreconcilable differences."  Roger that.

Romeo I'm No Money Mule for Master P

10/26/2015 2:41 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1026-romeo-master-p-sonya-miller-TMZ-INSTAGRAM-01Romeo's record company is no shell company for his dad Master P to hide millions ... and he's got receipts to prove it to his mother -- who dragged him into her divorce war.

A source close to Romeo tells us the rapper insists No Limit Forever is more his deal, and less about his father. He's saying he founded the label, and all the money in its bank account is his.

Master P and his estranged wife, Sonya Miller, started No Limit Records in the '90s -- and she's fighting for a cut of that fortune, but claims Master P is hiding cash in their son's similarly named label.

We're told Romeo is upset his mother sued him, and put him smack in the middle of the divorce ... but he has a paper trail to prove her wrong in court, when and if it becomes necessary.

Khloe to Lamar You Do Drugs Again, I'm Gone for Good

10/26/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1025-khloe-lamar-TMZ-GETTY-01Khloe Kardashian isn't stupid, and she's ready to relaunch divorce proceedings if Lamar Odom shows any signs of going back to the world of drugs ... so say sources connected with Khloe.

Our sources say Khloe is annoyed by people on social media who are calling her naive for dropping the divorce. TMZ broke the story, Khloe and Lamar both signed off to dismiss the divorce case, which was all but final.

We're told Khloe knows better than anyone about Lamar's battle with drugs. Feelings aside, she's game to drop the divorce partly because Lamar has no one else in his life to help him recover. And, by the way, we're told Lamar is on the Kardashian health insurance policy and he needs to stay on.

Lamar's medical bills will total in the many millions, and our sources say he doesn't have the financial wherewithal to handle it on his own.

It's murky, because if this were just about health insurance, Khloe could easily buy it for him and go through with the divorce. 

Bottom line ... if he goes back to drugs, she's gone.


Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale Settle Divorce

10/25/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1024-rossdale-stefani-tmz-01Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale have struck an agreement on who gets what in their divorce ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected with the couple tell us, Gwen and Gavin will get joint custody with their 3 children. We're told the agreement provides a 50/50 split in physical custody, but we're told Gavin will actually have the kids for the majority of time because of Gwen's touring schedule. 

As for money, we learned there was no prenup ... we're told Gavin agreed to take far less than his 50% share of the community property. Under California law they're each entitled to half, but our sources say Gavin took much less  ... presumably to reach a quick settlement.

As for stories that Gwen and Gavin were fighting over money, we're told that was never the case.

Gwen filed for divorce in August after 13 years of marriage,  We're told the judge should sign final divorce docs by year's end.

Morena Baccarin & Ben McKenzie This Relationship Is Working

10/23/2015 1:41 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1023-benjami-mckenzie-morena-baccarin-splash-01With nothing left to hide ... Morena Baccarin and Benjamin McKenzie are getting kinda touchy on the NYC set of "Gotham."

Even when cameras weren't rolling Thursday, Ben slipped in a little PDA with his baby mama.

Morena was wearing a baggy coat and scarf as they waited to shoot a scene ... so it doesn't look like they're working the pregnancy into a "Gotham" plotline.

As we've reported ... the co-stars plan to get married in the future ... once she can wrap up her nasty divorce.
