'Orange Is The New Black' Star

My Acting Success Was Ill-Timed

... Ditto for My Divorce

8/13/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0811-schreiber-monty-getty-instagram-01Pablo Schreiber's soon-to-be ex-wife will be enjoying the fruits of his "Orange Is The New Black" labors for years to come, because their divorce settlement includes a chunk of his residuals.

Pablo, who plays George "Pornstache" Mendez on 'OITNB' ... just finalized his divorce from Jessica Monty -- and let's just say the timing of their marriage worked out perfectly for her. 

Pablo's career took off after they tied the knot, and according to the divorce settlement ... that means she will get half of his earnings AND residuals from a bunch of hit shows, such as -- 'OITNB,' "Weeds," and "Law & Order: SVU." 

Jessica also gets $8,500/month in spousal support, plus he has to fork over a lump sum of $93k. They've agreed to joint custody of their two kids.

On the other hand, Pablo does get to keep all his money from a bunch of episodes of "The Wire," movies like "The Manchurian Candidate" and "Lords of Dogtown" ... which were all pre-marriage.

EXCLUSIVE

0812_lamr_khloe_tmz_wm_swipeKhloe Kardashian was blindsided at 6:45 AM Wednesday by soon-to-be ex-husband Lamar Odom, who launched a verbal attack.

Khloe was on her way into SoulCycle in Beverly Hills when Lamar came out of nowhere, screaming at her. An eyewitness tells us Lamar was demanding that she talk to him. She kept walking as he was screaming. At that point Lamar touched Khloe's arm and she screamed at him, "Get off of me, get off of me. Stop. Stop."

Another eyewitness asked Khloe if she wanted them to call the cops, and Lamar screamed, "You're not going to call the cops on Lamar Odom."   

Khloe then screamed, "How did you know I was here?" He didn't give a clear answer.

We're told Khloe was visibly freaked out and bolted to her car and drove away.

TMZ broke the story, Khloe and Lamar signed divorce docs last month, after the divorce lay dormant for more than a year.

'Sugar' Shane Mosley to Ex-Wife

Read It and Weep ...

Docs Show You Two-Timed Me

8/12/2015 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0811-shane-jin-mosley-tmz-getty-01"Sugar" Shane Mosley firmly believes his ex-wife was married to another man at the same time as him ... because he has papers nailing down the date she divorced the guy. 

Sources close to Mosley tell TMZ Sports ... Shane's lawyers obtained a NY State Certificate of Dissolution of Marriage for Jin Mosley, dated Sept. 26, 2006. Shane and Jin were married from 2002 to 2011.

Do the math ... it all adds up to bigamy, as far as Shane's concerned.

We're told Shane presented the divorce doc in court last week ... in hopes of getting a judge to freeze Jin's assests. TMZ broke the story ... Shane's hoping to get back all or some of the cash and assets he forked over to her when they divorced -- since they were never really married, he believes.

We're told the judge has not ruled yet on Shane's request.

Jin has not returned our calls for comment.

EXCLUSIVE

0811-ivan-greening-mugshot

Five Finger Death Punch singer Ivan L. Moody is now in the throes of divorce after his wife accused him of cheating and he allegedly beat her within an inch of her life.

According to docs obtained by TMZ … Holly Smith confronted Ivan in a Vegas hotel room and accused him of infidelity after finding texts on his phone from various women.  

She says she eventually went to sleep, and woke up with Ivan's arms around her neck in a Jiu-Jitsu submission hold. She says he then repeatedly punched her and choked her with a blanket.

Moody was arrested for domestic violence but the charges were dropped.

The rest of the divorce docs paint a similar picture of abuse, with injuries that include a bloody eye and busted blood vessels. 

Holly wants financial support, and says Ivan has plenty to give ... she says he banks around $66k a month with his heavy metal act.

Heidi Klum & Seal

Kiss Me Goodbye ...

As My Girlfriend Watches

8/10/2015 7:46 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0810-heidi-klum-seal-erica-splashHeidi Klum got a goodbye kiss from ex-hubby Seal Sunday night, which wouldn’t have been awkward if Seal’s new girlfriend Erica Packer hadn’t been watching intently.

The former couple took their 4 kids – Leni, Henry, Johan, Lou – to Nobu in NYC for dinner, but added a few more seats to the table, including one for Packer, the ex-wife of Mariah Carey's billionaire BF, James Packer.

It's the first time Erica's been spotted with Seal's brood.

Kind of reminds you of those "Kiss From A Rose" lyrics ... "Ooh, the more I get of you, The stranger it feels, yeah."

Miranda Lambert

Divorce Left Me Thirsty ...

I Need A Drink

8/8/2015 10:38 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0808-miranda-lambert-twitter-01Miranda Lambert was on the hunt for drinking buddies Friday night in Minnesota  ... telling her fans that booze is a good tonic for divorce.

Miranda was performing at WE Fest, when she blurted out, "I wish I've been drinking all day.  I deserve it."  A short time later she said, "I just got divorced."

We're guessing that wasn't news to concertgoers, who went crazy ... some offering to take a shot with the singer.

Some of her fans say she teared up when she sang "Over You," a song written by Miranda and Blake Shelton about Blake's brother who passed away.  

Blake is scheduled to perform tonight at the same event.

Country Star Announces

Divorce on Twitter

0807-jake-lacey-getty-01Jake Owen has eliminated the middle man -- and his marriage -- in one fell swoop ... by announcing his divorce on Twitter.

The country star said the move was "the hardest thing" he's ever done, writing, "Sadly, Lacey and I have decided to end our marriage. We want to focus on our daughter Pearl and make sure that she has a beautiful life with loving parents." 

The move shouldn't come as a surprise to his loyal fans. Just last month, in a recent interview he openly discussed his marital problems and said specifically he and his wife had been considering a divorce.

Mariah Carey

Nick Cannon's Dragging His Feet

In Our Divorce

8/7/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Mariah Carey is nothing if not deliciously diabolical ... we found out she had dinner with her divorce lawyers this week to come up with a plan to put the screws to Nick Cannon, who's dragging his feet in their divorce, and at the same time assuring new BF, James Packer, she'll be free to marry him soon.

We found out after getting a star Wednesday on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, she went to dinner with disso-queen Laura Wasser and law partner, Melanie Mandles. Our sources say they were looking for pressure points to make Nick seal the deal on the divorce. They believe he's dragging his feet.

We're told it's all about money ... there's no doubt she'll have the lion's share of custody of the twins.  

There's an urgency to getting Nick to sign off, because we're told Mariah wants her billionaire BF to know she won't be in limbo for long. It's an issue for him, so she dealt with it by having a little girl talk over sushi at Nobu with her power manager, Stella Bulochnikov.

Elton Brand

College Sweetheart Files

For Separation

8/7/2015 12:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0806-elton-brand-divorce-GETTY-01Elton Brand is now a free agent ... professionally and personally -- the NBA superstar's wife has filed for separation.

Brand's now estranged wife Shahara Simmons filed the docs a couple weeks ago ... shortly after their 9th anniversary. They met during college at Duke University and have 2 children.

In Sahara's docs she says they hashed out separation of assets back in April, and all that's left to hammer out is child custody and child support.

Brand played in Atlanta for the last 2 seasons, but is now looking to rebound with a new team. Kinda like Shahara, we're guessing.

'Sugar' Shane Mosley

My Ex-Wife Robbed Me

We Were NEVER Really Married!!

8/6/2015 1:43 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0806-sugar-jin-mosley-tmz-getty"Sugar" Shane Mosley says he suffered a love TKO because his ex was already married when she said "I do" to him, and then made out like a bandit when she divorced him -- but that's not her memory of what went down. 

The ex boxing champ marched into an L.A. courthouse on Wednesday to start taking legal action against Jin Mosley -- who he was married to from 2002 to 2011. Shane claims he recently got proof Jin was also married to another guy from 1995 until 2006 ... which would make her a bigamist.

It would also mean Shane and Jin were never legally married, and therefore never divorced -- which makes a huge financial difference, 'cause according to docs ... Jin cleaned up in the break up:

- 3 houses
- several investment and bank accounts
- 2009 Mercedes G Wagon and 2008 Cadillac Escalade
- income from Mosley's fight library
- $600k lump sum for spousal support 

So, clearly there's a lot on the line. However, Jin tells TMZ Sports ... she has no idea what Shane is talking about, and denies being married to anyone else.

It's unclear what kind of "proof" Shane has, but outside court he told us he plans to sue for bigamy and fraud so he can get back everything he shelled out.

Donald & Shelly Sterling

Finally Divorcing

8/5/2015 2:17 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0805-main-tear-sterlings-tmz-02Donald Sterling pulled the trigger -- doing what Shelly Sterling wouldn't -- filing to divorce his longtime spouse.

The former Clippers owner filed the docs in Los Angeles Superior Court ... about 2 weeks before the couple would have celebrated their 60th anniversary -- although it's debatable if there would have been any celebration at all.

As we've reported ... Shelly had actually prepared divorce docs last year -- she even signed the papers, but changed her mind at the last minute. That, of course, came on the heels of TMZ Sports breaking the story about Donald's racist recorded conversation with his alleged mistress V. Stiviano.

A few months later the Sterlings sold the Clippers for $2 billion to Steve Ballmer.
