Giada De Laurentiis

Officially Divorced

... And it Was Expensive

9/3/2015 3:53 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Giada De Laurentiis is officially divorced from hubby Todd Thompson, but not without cost.

TMZ has obtained a copy of the final divorce judgment, which orders Giada to pay Todd $9k a month in child support. Todd gets their $3.2 million house in Pacific Palisades and $300,000 in art and furnishings. He also gets to keep his membership in the swanky Bel-Air Bay Club which overlooks the Pacific.

Giada gets all rights to an untitled Italian cookbook and her production company, Linguine Pictures. She also gets all rights to GDL Foods, Inc. In other words, she gets to keep her brand. 

And get this ... because there was no prenup, Giada must give Todd 50% of the unpaid advances to various cookbooks that are in the works, including a $2.5 million balance for Giada at Home/Weeknights with Giada, $2.3 million for Giada Feel Good Food, and $757,000 for Everyday Pasta/Giada's Kitchen. 

They're dividing up various bank accounts, with a total balance north of $2 million.

And of course, he gets to keep his Porsche and she gets to keep hers.

No one's getting spousal support, because they're both rich. His estimated worth is $15 million ... hers is $20 million.  

They'll share joint custody of their 7-year-old daughter, Jade Marie.


Miranda Lambert

Happily Singing Divorce Blues

9/2/2015 11:29 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Miranda Lambert fired off another shot at ex-hubby Blake Shelton during a tribute to country legend Loretta Lynn.

It went down Tuesday night at the ACM Honors in Nashville, TN. A post-breakup hot Lambert belted out Lynn's "Rated X," the controversial 1973 track about divorce. Sample lyrics: "Well if you've been a married woman and things didn't seem to work out/Divorce is the key to bein' loose and free so you're gonna be talked about ..."

It's unclear if Lambert picked the song herself, but she does admit it is perfect for her ... right now.

Bad news for Miranda though ... the song is about women empowerment and getting a divorce ... but Blake is the one that filed.

Master P DOES have a limit ... when it comes to his estranged wife throwing huge parties with her boyfriend in a house where HE'S FOOTING THE BILL! 

P ripped into Sonya Miller ... responding to the story TMZ broke -- she's filed court docs, bitching that Master P had blocked her from entering the Calabasas gated community where she lives with their 7 kids.

But Master P wants to make it clear ... he's fine with Sonya living in the house, "But I’m not going to allow access to her boyfriend and partying friends to come over and sleep where my kids are." He also accuses her of neglecting their children, saying -- " she doesn’t even take my kids to school and my sixteen year old failed all of her classes last year under her mother’s lack of guidance." 

He says her court filing is simply a publicity stunt, and he can prove she's been parading people in and out of the gated community for her ragers ... "These records will be furnished to the courts to show the heavy traffic and penalties that I have had to pay for all the crazy parties she’s been having."

Master P says he just wants Sonya to clean up her act, get a job, and take care of the kids. He added, " I’m just fed up with the extra bs. I will always take care of my family and I wish the best for her, she’s the mother of my kids.”

She Won't Leave My House!!

9/2/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0901-greg-hetson-getty-01Bad Religion guitarist Greg Hetson is having a hard time shaking his ex-wife ... so hard, he had to call the cops. 

Hetson claims in a restraining order, ex-wife Alia Blue has incessantly showed up at his LA home and each time refuses to leave. He's afraid to leave town because sometimes she just shows up and makes herself at home.  

Greg says she just won't accept the fact they divorced 2 years ago and he doesn't know what to do when she bangs on his door for an hour, demanding to hash out their relationship.

Hetson says both he and his daughter feel threatened by Alia and the judge agreed to temporarily protect them. A full hearing is scheduled next week.

0829-morena-baccarin-tmz-01"Homeland" star Morena Baccarin's growing success could be exactly what hurts her in her divorce ... costing both money and time with her kid.

Chick says Morena's constant travel for work isn't healthy for their one-year-old, so he wants physical custody. He also wants Morena to cover nanny expenses up to $3k per month. 

Chick says he's taken on the role of Mr. Mom ... taking their son to the zoo, the park, and caring for him on a daily basis.

8/26/2015 3:56 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0826_megan_fox_wennMegan Fox was throwing major shade ... over her own face while out for a stroll with her little boy.

Mama Fox was rocking a giant floppy hat on Wednesday as she and 1-year-old Bodhi cruised around L.A. -- sans pops Brian Austin Green.

Don't read too much into that ... our sources tell us Megan and Brian's divorce is amicable, and they're still living under the same roof.

This is the first time either of them has been seen out in public since their split.


Brian Austin Green

Spousal Support Necessary

Vertigo Derails Work

8/24/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0821-brian-austin-green-tmz-01Brian Austin Green will almost certainly get spousal support from Megan Fox in their divorce, and the reason appears to stem from a terrible car accident.

TMZ broke the story, Megan filed for divorce Friday.  As we said, our sources say it's likely she'll end up paying Brian spousal support, because of the large disparity in income and income potential.

We're told Brian has worked very little since last December, when he was in a head-on collision.  As we reported, Brian and Megan were driving when they were hit by a drunk driver who was arrested.  Brian says the guy was going around 50 MPH and it was severe enough for the airbags to deploy.

At the time of the accident TMZ was told Brian and Megan were not injured.  But now we're told the accident triggered a serious medical condition ... vertigo, which affects balance.

Our sources say Brian's vertigo is so bad he can't get out of bed.  We're told he hasn't worked since the accident.

As we reported, Brian and Megan -- who is working steadily on huge movies -- are still living in the same home.

Five Finger Death Punch Singer

Acting Like He's Possessed ...

Wife Begs for Rehab

8/23/2015 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0812-ivan-moody-facebook-03Five Finger Death Punch singer Ivan Moody is running out of time -- his estranged wife says he's having bizarre Jekyll & Hyde-like episodes and needs to get help for alcohol abuse, stat. 

Moody's estranged wife, Holly Smith, filed an affidavit with the Adams County Court in Colorado ... saying Ivan can no longer tell the difference between his real persona and his onstage one ... thanks to his alcohol abuse.

In the docs, Smith says Ivan's taking on the personality of the band's song, "Jekyll and Hyde." She says, "Ivan has talked to me in third person in a voice different from his own as if he were a demonic presence inhabiting a body."

Ivan's sister, Sandra Dykes, filed an affidavit of her own as well backing up many of Holly's claims.

Holly and Sandra think he needs to get into rehab immediately. In the meantime, the judge granted Holly a restraining order against Ivan after she showed photos of bruises he allegedly gave her.


Megan Fox

Files for Divorce

8/21/2015 10:48 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0820_brian-austin-green_megan_fox_TMZMegan Fox has filed for divorce, just days after announcing her separation from husband Brian Austin Green

Fox, who's repped by disso-queen Laura Wasser, cites the standard "irreconcilable differences." She's asking for joint physical and legal custody of the couple's 2 sons.

Sources close to the couple tell TMZ, there is no prenup, so earnings during their 5-year marriage are community property and divided 50/50. They've been together for 11 years and we're told the probability is their assets are so co-mingled, they will be divided in half.  

Our sources say the likelihood is Megan will end up paying Brian spousal support, partly because of the disparity in income and partly because he's had medical problems. 

We're also told the divorce is "very amicable," to the point they continue to live in the same house.

The date of separation is listed as June 15th.


Jared Fogle's Wife

Divorce Docs Indicate

She Had No Clue Until Yesterday

8/20/2015 9:23 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


It appears Jared Fogle's wife was blindsided by the severity of the charges against her husband, because she sent him packing at the same time prosecutors charged him with having sex with minors.

Katie Fogle filed divorce papers Wednesday and according to docs, obtained by TMZ, she lists the date of separation as the same day.

Prosecutors held their cards close to the vest until they filed formal charges yesterday, detailing Jared's sexual liaisons with underage girls. Until yesterday, it appeared the only charges involved possessing child porn.

Katie expressed shock when she announced yesterday she was going to divorce Jared. Bottom line ... it seems the underage sex charges were an enormous, hideous surprise.  

As for the divorce ... she says she'll offer a specific custody proposal when the judge hears the case, but wants to make it clear the order should be in the best interests of the couple's 2 kids.

She says she wants the financial assets divided in a "just and reasonable" manner.

She cites "irretrievable breakdown of the marriage" as her reason for filing

Yeah, we were pretty shocked to see the former first couple of the L.A. Clippers looking like they're still a thing, so we had to ask ... is the divorce off? 

Donald was tight-lipped as usual, but Shelly told us ... "Everything's gonna be wonderful."

The Sterling's 60th anniversary is this week, so maybe it was a ... celebration?

Anyway, check out Shelly's response when we asked if she still loves Donald.
