Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt Story They Settled Is BS ... Custody War Still On

11/7/2016 8:32 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1107-angelina-jolie-brad-pitt-tmzA story is circulating Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have settled their custody dispute ... total BS.

Multiple sources familiar with the situation are scoffing at the report that the divorcing couple struck a settlement giving Angelina primary physical custody while Brad got visitation.

TMZ broke the story ... Brad filed legal docs Friday sharply contesting Angelina's request for primary physical custody. Instead, Brad wants a judge to award joint physical and legal custody to both.

The report published by Associated Press cites an Angelina source who says the couple reached the mutual agreement which includes family therapy. In fact, the couple agreed to extend the temporary arrangement ONLY until the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services closes its investigation.

As TMZ and other outlets reported, Brad and Angelina agreed she would have physical custody during the DCFS investigation and Brad would have visitation monitored by a therapist. That agreement was extended last week, but it is NOT a settlement. That will be handled by the family court judge.

Again, Brad just filed docs Friday asking for joint custody, and the AP report says the couple reached a settlement last week, so the story makes no sense on its face.


Angelina Jolie Brad's Dreaming ... He's Not Getting Joint Custody

11/7/2016 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1106-brad-angelina-jolie-pitt-TMZ-01Angelina Jolie is ready and willing to fight Brad Pitt in court over the custody of their children and "until he gets his s**t together" she only wants him to have monitored visitation ... sources connected to Angelina tell TMZ.

TMZ broke the story, Brad filed legal docs Friday, asking for joint custody of the couple's six children. Angelina has drawn a line in the sand, asking for primary physical custody, with Brad getting visitation ... our sources tell us she wants the visits monitored.

Angelina's wish list is basically what she and Brad agreed to temporarily while the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services investigates a confrontation between Brad and Maddox. As we reported, DCFS is looking more broadly at interactions in the family.

Our Angelina sources say she ultimately wants the family repaired so she and Brad can resume a "normal" parenting regime, but until then she will fight hard for sole physical custody. She believes Brad has substance abuse and anger issues that must be addressed.

One Angelina source said this is looking more and more like "War of the Roses redux."


Brad Pitt I Want Joint Custody of Our Kids Divorce War Brewing

11/4/2016 4:44 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1104-brad-pitt-angelina-jolie-tmzBrad Pitt has just set the stage for a custody war ... asking for joint custody of the 6 kids he shares with Angelina Jolie ... TMZ has learned. 

Brad answered Angelina's divorce petition and squarely takes issue with her request for sole physical custody of the kids. She wanted Brad to only have visitation.

TMZ broke the story, Angelina checked the box for sole custody after Brad allegedly struck Maddox on a private jet.

FYI ... California judges favor joint custody, unless it would be harmful to the kids.

Neither Brad nor Angelina mention spousal or child support.

Brad gives the same separation date as Angelina ... Sept. 15th.


Jermaine Jackson Divorce I Want HALF Our Michaels ... Says Estranged Wife

11/5/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

jermaine_jackson_paintings_main_launchJermaine Jackson's estranged wife is making a list -- and checking it twice, we're sure -- to make sure she gets half their stuff, and she's especially eyeing two fancy Michael Jackson paintings.

Halima Rashid's divorce docs include a list of assets the couple amassed during 11 years of marriage. There's little stuff, like an Apple TV receiver and flower pots, and plenty of big ticket items too ... like the MJ portraits, entitled "Abstract" and "Sofa." 

She doesn't include the current value of the paintings, but only because she hasn't had them appraised yet. As for vehicles -- she says their Ferrari and Jeep are worth about $133k, and she wants her cut. 


Dakota Fanning Hot Dad Has a Change of Heart Scratches Divorce

11/3/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1102-dakota-fanning-steven-heather-joy-arrington-tmz-splash-01Dakota Fanning will not be a (grown) child of divorce after all ... her pops just yanked his divorce docs.

Dakota's father, Steven Fanning, is dismissing his divorce petition from Heather, his wife of almost 27 years. 

Sources connected with the family tell us Steven and Heather will try to work their differences out. They do not want to give up on the marriage.

We broke the story ... Steven filed for the split late last week, citing irreconcilable differences. He did not ask for spousal support from Heather, and custody of the kids wasn't going to be an issue since both Dakota and her sister, Elle, are adults.

Good luck.

Larsa Pippen 2nd 911 Call ... Help, Scottie's Breaking Stuff!

11/1/2016 12:33 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Larsa Pippen made a tearful 911 call -- just 3 days after she placed a very similar call to police -- and said Scottie had "gotten crazy again."

The NBA legend's wife called Fort Lauderdale PD on Oct. 4, and this time she was more defiant and insisted police come to their home because he was breaking things.

As we reported ... her first 911 call was made as Scottie stood next to Larsa, telling her to cancel the call for help. The second time around, Larsa is by herself, crying and providing details about the alleged incident. 


Scottie Pippen's Wife 911 Call 'My Husband is Getting Aggressive with Me'

11/1/2016 11:06 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Scottie Pippen's wife tearfully told a 911 dispatcher her husband was getting aggressive, but he was doing everything he could to call off the cavalry.

We obtained audio of the 911 call made October 1st -- the first time cops responded to the Pippen's Florida home. Later that month, Scottie filed for divorce.

It's unclear what the argument was over, but as we reported Larsa had been hanging with Future and it appears it was a source of conflict.


Mariah Carey For This I Divorced Nick Cannon???

11/1/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1031-nick-cannon-mariah-carey-james-packer-tmzMariah Carey's timing is worse than a Jewish dance troupe's ... her divorce from Nick Cannon became final after years of waiting ... just days before her relationship with James Packer exploded.

TMZ broke the story, Mariah was trying for more than a year to get Nick off the dime and sign divorce papers. She's wanted to get married to billionaire James Packer for months, but the divorce made it a non-starter.

We've learned at the end of the summer, right before Mariah and James boarded a yacht in Greece, Nick signed the docs and the divorce was a done deal, clearing the way for a wedding day. That plan was shattered onboard the boat, when James allegedly had a bad incident with Mariah's assistant.

As for the divorce, we're told Nick and Mariah agreed on joint custody of their 5-year-old twins. Neither gets child support.

We're also told the prenup made a property settlement easy ... she gets what she earned during the marriage, and he keeps what he earned.


Nick Cannon Ike Turner Don't Wanna Talk Mariah

11/1/2016 7:03 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Nick Cannon's answer to questions about Mariah Carey, divorce and/or James Packer ... is Ike Turner.

We got Nick outside the Halloween party at Vandal in NYC, and of course, he got a heavy dose of Mariah. Makes sense ... as we reported, their divorce was just finalized, and now she's in the middle of cutting all ties with Packer. 

Luckily for Nick, he was in character as the late Ike ... which allowed him to throw out the perfect response to the questions.

Great timing, Ike!

NFL's Donald Penn Wife Files For Divorce After He Allegedly Knocked Up Reality Star

11/1/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1031-donald-dominique-penn-TMZ-INSTAGRAM-01Raiders star Donald Penn's wife is calling quits on their marriage ... TMZ Sports has learned.

As we previously reported ... Donald's wife, Dominique Penn, BLASTED the star lineman over social media earlier this month after he allegedly knocked up a reality TV star.

At the time, Dominique vowed to stick by Donald's side ... but something clearly changed ... 'cause only days after calling out her husband and his alleged baby mama, Dominique filed for divorce in L.A.

In court docs, obtained by TMZ Sports, Dominique -- married to Donald since June 2012 -- lists "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the split.

In the docs -- filed on October 20th -- she asks for spousal support and joint custody of their 3 kids.

We reached out to Donald's rep ... who had no comment.

Penn reportedly made over $47 million playing football ... in other words, this could be costly for D.P.

Slash's Estranged Wife He Knows Damn Well We're Married ... We Did It Twice!

11/1/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Slash's ex says his claim they were never married is an absolutely humiliating joke to her and their kids.

Perla Ferrar was out in Beverly Hills when she reacted to the story we broke -- that Slash says they were never husband and wife because Perla hadn't divorced her first husband.

She tells us the Guns N' Roses rocker should have fresh memories of their marriages. Either the first one OR the second!

Perla also says there were signs of nasty things to come when she took their kids to Coachella to watch Slash and GNR this year -- and it was not a VIP experience.

Slash My Ex Gets Nothing We Were Never Married!

10/31/2016 12:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1028_slash_perla_tmzSlash is playing hardball in his divorce ... we've learned he wants a judge to say he was NEVER married to Perla with the endgame of shutting down her request for a cut of his massive fortune, but he's got a major uphill battle on his hands.

Turns out ... when Perla married Slash in 2001, she was still married to another dude, so Slash thinks she's a bigamist who had no right to share in his earnings during their 13-year marriage.

Here's what we know. Perla married a guy named Carlos Marty back in '93, but it only lasted a month. She got divorced, or so she thought. Turns out, the necessary forms for a final judgment were never properly filed.

Perla assumed she was a single lady when she tied the knot with Slash, and he assumed the same. Years later, the couple tried to get dual citizenship for their son, Cash, and during a document search they discovered she was not properly divorced.

Perla claims the couple then hired a real lawyer in 2009 and he got a judge to finalize her divorce from Carlos and hizzoner made it retroactive to 1994 ... something a judge has the power to do under these circumstances.

But now things aren't so nice, and Slash contends Perla's divorce was never final so he was NEVER married to her. As such, he wants to slam the door shut on her claim to half the earnings he accumulated during the marriage ... which totals in the 10s of millions of dollars.

We did some checking, and there's a law about "putative spouses" ... that means if 2 people have a reasonable belief they're married but there's some irregularity in the documents, a judge can still treat them as married and divide their earnings so each still gets half.

Advantage: Perla.
