Tamar Braxton Marriage Crumbled After 'The Real' Firing

10/26/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Tamar Braxton was depressed for months after she was fired from "The Real" ... and it wreaked havoc on her marriage that ultimately failed.

Sources close to Tamar tell TMZ ... the singer's marriage to estranged hubby Vince Herbert suffered an irreparable fracture after going through a time of depression stemming from her firing in May.

While they're no strangers to a roller coaster of a relationship, we're told losing the gig created bigger issues because it compounded an already teetering relationship. And one of the first steps to get back on track -- moving out 3 months ago, even though they acted like a couple just 2 weeks ago.

Our sources say Tamar and Vince put on an act in NYC as an engaging couple simply to promote their show. At this point, we're told Tamar had already moved in to a baller high-rise.

Her 2-bedroom luxury condo in Bev Hills goes for around $15k a month. Some of the building's amenities include an indoor 75-foot lap pool, an outdoor pool as well, 5 gyms, a spa, a restaurant with free bar, a screening room ... seriously, there are more amenities than any building in America.

That's how you bounce back.

Mel B coldly boxed up and tossed out her estranged husband's stuff ... according to Stephen Belafonte, who's not taking it well.

Kevin Dillon Battles Ex Over Kid's Tuition I Can't Afford Private School!!!

10/20/2017 11:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kevin Dillon's not going to fork over a dime to his estranged wife to send their daughter to private school, especially since he thinks public school is perfectly fine ... according to new legal docs.

The "Entourage" star says he can't afford to pay his ex, Jane Stuart, any more money for tuition for their daughter Ava -- who's heading into 6th grade -- because he's already paying child and spousal support and living off his savings.

The problem -- Jane believes Ava should attend a private school in Calabasas, where she's gone her whole life, but Kevin thinks a public school in Malibu with a "gold medal" ranking by U.S. News and World Report is more than sufficient ... not to mention more cost-effective.

Jane claims Kevin's out of touch with their daughter's needs ... and she doesn't want Ava to attend the Malibu school because of its alleged drug issues and cancer-causing agents on campus.

As we reported ... Dillon was already ordered to pay $3,174 a month in child support and $7,214 in monthly spousal support to Stuart.

EXCLUSIVE

It's not exactly a dream ad for Jack in the Box ... Ralphie May chowed down on Jalapeno Poppers and a Chicken Sandwich at 1 AM Friday, and 12 hours later he was dead.

We now know Ralphie's last hours. After performing at Harrah's Thursday night, he and a few other comedians went to Jack in the Box, got take out and went to the private residence where Ralphie was staying with a fellow comedian.

Ralphie took his bag of food into his room at around 1 AM, shut the door and that's the last time anyone saw him alive.

He had a habit of sleeping until noon, so no one thought of checking on him, until Ralphie's assistant showed up just after 12 PM and opened his bedroom door. The assistant found Ralphie unconscious on the floor. We're told it appears he was sitting on the side of the bed when the heart attack struck and he fell over. Paramedics came but said there was nothing they could do. He was dead.

We're told there were no drugs found. In fact, Ralphie famously carried a vape pen, but it had been a long stretch since he used it. One source who was with him nightly says although Ralphie had been battling pneumonia for 6 weeks, he was "80 to 90% better" the night before he died.

We're also told he was in good spirits, although there was one serious source of conflict ... his divorce and his estranged wife. Ralphie felt his wife would not let go of their marriage and was trying to punish him, using their 2 kids as a weapon. 

People in Ralphie's life are extremely upset, because his estranged wife now has complete control of his estate since the divorce was not final. We're told she had closed off many of the people who were close to Ralphie and worked with him.

Terrence Howard Ex-Wife Wins Appeal ... He'll Have to Pay Up After All

10/2/2017 9:23 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Terrence Howard's taking an "L" in his longstanding spousal support war with his ex-wife ... who just won in appeals court.

According to court docs, Michelle Ghent Howard got a ruling on their spousal support overturned. Two years ago, Terrence convinced the court he'd been forced to sign their marital settlement under duress. He claimed she was threatening to go public with naked photos and videos.

At the time, he'd been paying her $5,800 per month.

Michelle appealed that ruling and the judges agreed with her argument -- that Terrence was NOT under duress because too much time had passed between the threat and Terrence signing the agreement. The court said it was more like Terrence had "buyer's remorse" -- and he had other options besides signing on the dotted lines. 

For instance, the court said he could have gone to the police if he felt Michelle was blackmailing him.

The appeal victory means the marital settlement is reinstated, and Terrence will have to start paying spousal support again. It's unclear how much he'll have to pay.

Weiner has until Nov. 6 to report to prison.
