Angelina Jolie Files for Divorce from Brad Pitt Allegations of Substance Abuse, Anger

9/20/2016 7:28 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0920-angelina-jolie-brad-pitt-getty-03Angelina Jolie has filed for divorce from Brad Pitt and the trigger was a conflict over the kids, substance abuse and anger ... TMZ has learned.

Jolie filed legal docs Monday citing irreconcilable differences.

She's asking for physical custody of the couple's 6 children. She is asking the judge to give Pitt visitation. It's significant ... she does not want Brad to have joint physical custody ... only joint legal custody.

Sources connected with the couple tell us ... Angelina's decision to file has to do with the way Brad was parenting the children ... she was extremely upset with his methods. 

Our sources say, Angelina became "fed up" with Brad's consumption of weed and possibly alcohol, and mixed with what she believes is "an anger problem" ... felt it became dangerous for the children.

Indeed, Angelina's entertainment attorney Robert Offer says she made the decision "for the health of the family."

We're told there was no alleged "third person" ... her decision to file was solely over Brad's interaction with their children.

Jolie, who's being repped by disso queen Laura Wasser, is not asking for spousal support.

Jolie lists the date of separation as Sept. 15, 2016.

They married in August 2014. They've been together since 2004.

The last time we saw them together was in July when they took the twins, Knox and Vivienne, out for a birthday breakfast in West Hollywood.

John Schneider -- one of TV's "good ole boys" -- is gonna hand over a big ole bundle of dough to his estranged wife in spousal support.

Bo Duke from "The Dukes of Hazzard" was ordered to pay Elvira Schneider $18,911 every month, which sounds like a hefty bill -- 'cause it is -- but it could have been worse. Elvira had requested $31k per month.

If you're wondering how the star of an '80s TV show can still afford to fork out that kinda cash --Schneider says he earned $40,487 last month. He owns a production company where he's directing, writing and producing ... plus he's still acting in several projects.

Elvira filed divorce docs almost 2 years ago. They've yet to reach a final settlement.

9/15/2016 3:01 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


UFC Hall of Famer Royce Gracie -- one of the greatest MMA fighters of all time -- is pulling the plug on his 22 year marriage ... TMZ Sports has learned.

Gracie filed divorce docs in L.A. County Superior Court seeking to end his marriage to Marianne Cuttic. 

The two were married back in 1994 and have 4 children together -- 3 of them are under the age of 18. 

In the docs, 49-year-old Gracie cites irreconcilable differences for the split -- but the most interesting part ... he's the one demanding spousal support. He also wants her to pay his attorneys fees. 

Shocking, considering Gracie is one of the most famous MMA fighters ever -- and just fought Ken Shamrock at Bellator 149 back in February. 

Marianne is a podiatrist in Los Angeles. 

Royce is requesting joint physical and legal custody of their minor kids. 

According to multiple reports, Gracie and his wife have been battling with the I.R.S. -- which has accused them of owing more than $1 million in back taxes.

Mary J. Blige Divorce Drama ... Kendu Going for Her Bank

9/14/2016 1:34 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0914-mary-j-blige-martin-isaacs-tmz-02Mary J. Blige's estranged husband/ex-manager, Martin "Kendu" Isaacs, wants her to open up her deep pockets.

Kendu just filed his response to Mary's divorce petition, and it's clear one of the many things they don't see eye to eye on is spousal support. He's asking Mary to fork it over, but in her docs Mary said she wants the court to block him from getting it.

Kendu lists July 25th as the date of separation, even though she said it was "to be determined." It's interesting because all their assets could be shared up until that date, and Mary's clearly the breadwinner. It's still unclear if they have a prenup.

One more financial jab -- Kendu wants her to pay his lawyer's fees.

They have 4 children -- 2 boys and 2 girls -- but only their daughter, Faith, is a minor. Andrea wants sole legal and physical custody ... with visitation for Ricky.

The "Silver Spoons" and "NYPD Blue" star made headlines for his decision to yank Faith from her middle school in Malibu a few years ago. He was concerned something in the school was causing a cancer outbreak after 3 teachers were diagnosed and several more complained of ailments.

Andrea's also demanding spousal support.

Ricky has said he became a more devout Mormon due to Andrea's involvement with the Church.

A couple months ago, she posted a pic of herself, apparently in Paris, and talked about her "new, less predictable future."

Wambach bought the place for $705k ... and she's listed it for $1.349 million. Not a bad profit if she can get it. 

By the way, one of the coolest rooms in the house ... is the bar, which may be one of the reasons Abby is unloading it.

Master P's Ex He's Using Our Kids to Save a Buck

9/10/2016 2:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0902_master_p_Sonya-Miller_tmz_instagramMaster P is full of it when he says he's broke, and even worse -- he's turned 3 of his kids into pawns in his divorce war with Sonya Miller ... according to Sonya, anyway.

Sonya is now firing back at her estranged husband and their children. We broke the story about the kids writing letters to the judge saying they preferred living with Dad because Mom is a drug addict.

But in new docs, Sonya says that Master P is pissed about recent court orders for him to pay her what she's owed ... so he used the kids to mislead the court. 

She takes a shot at P's parenting too ... saying his decision to involve the children was selfish and not in their best interest. Sonya's also not buying his claim he only makes $2,441 per month.

She claims his net worth was $350 mil within the last 5 years, plus ... he still rolls in a Rolls.

Bottom line -- Sonya thinks Master P is more concerned about his bottom line than child custody.
