Michael Vartan -- who famously dated Jennifer Garner during the production of "Alias" before she left him for Ben Affleck -- is getting the boot again ... his wife has filed for divorce.
Lauren Skaar filed legal docs citing irreconcilable differences.
The two met at a Whole Foods in L.A. She says Michael had engaged in some "calculated stalking," with the help of her email address.
The two married 3 years ago. They have no kids.
She's asking for spousal support. She works as a real estate agent and filed for divorce herself ... without a lawyer.
Michael has appeared most recently as a recurring character on "Bates Motel" -- which by the way is awesome.
Yung Joc's Wife
Keep Your Sidepiece
I'm OUTTA Here!!
7/14/2014 8:11 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The wife of "Love and Hip Hop" star Yung Joc must have finally reached her tolerance level of watching her hubby and his sidepiece on TV ... so she's pulling the plug on their marriage.
Alexandria Robinson filed to divorce the 31-year-old rapper. They were high school sweethearts and have been married for 13 years. They have 3 kids.
Alexandria acknowledges in her docs ... she and Joc have been separated since Feb. 2012.
She wants the works -- spousal and child support. She says she only pulls in $1,875 a month. But she's banking on getting royalties from his music publishing rights.
Not surprisingly, Alexandria cites adultery as grounds for the divorce.
Joc's been carrying on a high profile relationship with Karlie Redd on "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta." They live together on the show. And get this ... the GF gets really pissed off when she suspected he cheated on her.
Is She Rebounding ...
With Chuck Zito?!
7/12/2014 7:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Pamela Anderson is totally hooking up with Chuck Zito now that she's single ... is what you'd think looking at this picture.
Anderson and Zito were heading out of the Rainbow Room Friday night ... and shortly after, the duo was pictured face to face in Pam's ride.
As we previously reported, Anderson filed for divorce from poker player/"One Night in Paris" star Rick Solomon this week -- their second time splitting up.
At first glance Pam appears to be macking down on her ex-boyfriend -- they briefly dated in '07 -- turns out one of our camera guys shot them on video as well ... and they're clearly hugging.
Nothing to see here folks ... yet.
'Lost' Star Emilie de Ravin/Hubby
OK, This Time
WE're REALLY Divorcing
7/10/2014 4:09 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Emilie de Ravin -- who starred in "Lost" and "Once Upon a Time" -- and her husband are getting a divorce ... the question, are they crying wolf again?
Emilie's husband, Joshua Janowicz, -- also an actor -- filed legal docs this week to end their 7-year marriage. Sounds clean, except for:
-- Emilie filed for divorce in 2007 ... 6 months after they got married.
-- The divorce lay dormant for 2 years ... Joshua was never even served with legal papers
-- In 2009 Joshua got served, and the couple announced they were getting divorced
-- They never got divorced.
So now Joshua cites irreconcilable differences. In his new legal docs, he says they've been separated since November.
They just can't quit each other ... or maybe now they can.
Files For Divorce
From Rick Salomon
7/8/2014 12:16 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Pam Anderson is pulling the plug on her marriage to Rick Salomon ... TMZ has learned.
This will be Pam's second split from Salomon, whom she married in 2007 and stayed with all of 2 months. She got the marriage annulled. She was also married to Tommy Lee and Kid Rock.
Pam went public in January, saying she married Salomon again.
Interesting timing ... Salomon, a world-class poker player, won $2.8 million in the World Series of Poker Big One for One Drop last Tuesday. Pam filed on Thursday, so under the community property laws she gets half by the skin of her teeth ... unless there's a prenup.
In case you don't recognize Salomon, he's the one who co-starred with Paris Hilton in the famous sex tape, "One Night in Paris."
2:00 PM PDT -- Pam's not publicly known for being religious (more like the total opposite) ... but she just posted this message on Facebook. It appears to be a prayer from Rev. Maryum Morse from the Agape Center.
After She Dumps Hubby
7/7/2014 7:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
And they didn't live happily ever after ...
Sherri Shepherd put her dream house on the market a few weeks after she filed for divorce and a few weeks before she got the ax from "The View."
Sherri bought the house in 2012 ... when everything seemed good. She was rolling on "The View" and living seemingly happily with her husband Lamar Sally and her then 7-year-old son.
But things have deteriorated ... and Sherri put the house on the market for $1.725 Mill. She bought it for $1.737, but with real estate commissions and other expenses ... she'll be out of pocket some.
Sherri is now in a nuclear divorce. She and estranged hubby Lamar are expecting a child this month via surrogate, but as we reported Sherri does not want custody (it's not her egg) and she doesn't want to pay child support.
'True Blood' Actress
A Divorced Werewolf In Hollywood
7/7/2014 12:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
"True Blood" werewolf Kelly Overton is biting the hand that feeds her -- her husband ... she's filed for divorce and wants spousal support.
Overton - who plays alpha female werewolf Rikki -- cites the usual irreconcilable differences, asking a judge to end her marriage to actor Judson Pearce Morgan.
It's not unexpected. According to legal docs, they've been separated since 2012.
Overton wants joint custody of their 3-year-old daughter, along with spousal support. It's interesting she's asking for support ... suggesting he makes more than her.
Divorce. It sucks.
It's Not My Kid
I'm Not Paying Child Support
7/5/2014 12:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Sherri Shepherd does not want anything to do with her unborn surrogate baby ... because she believes her estranged husband defrauded her into having the kid in the first place so he could get child support ... this according to multiple sources connected with the couple.
TMZ broke the story ... Sherri and her husband Lamar Sally each separately filed legal docs to end their marriage. The big complication -- a baby will be born this month to a surrogate who signed a contract with Sherri and Lamar.
Now our sources say ... the baby was conceived with Lamar's sperm, but NOT Sherri's egg.
Now here's where it gets tricky. We're told Sherri does not want custody or even to be considered a parent ... because she doesn't want to get stuck with massive child support payments.
Sherri wants a judge to rule she has no parental rights or responsibilities -- which would shut the door to child support. She claims Lamar defrauded her -- that he got her to sign on for a surrogate birth knowing full well he would divorce her and then nail her to the wall for child support.
Our Lamar sources say Sherri tried to get pregnant in vitro and when it didn't work she got deeply involved in the surrogacy process.
Another twist ... Sherri has filed for divorce in New Jersey and Lamar has filed in California. This is not a coincidence. We did some digging, and found New Jersey courts generally do NOT recognize surrogacy agreements, which means Lamar would probably be shut down. Not so in Cali.
'SoA' Star Glenn Plummer
You Can Divorce Me But ...
I'm Not Moving Out
7/5/2014 12:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
“Sons of Anarchy” actor Glenn Plummer and his estranged wife have finally settled their divorce ... and while they're definitely ending the marriage, they're still gonna be living under the same roof. Awwwkward.
DeMonica Santiago-Plummer filed more than a year ago, but it was just finalized last month -- and according to the docs obtained by TMZ ... Glenn's getting a pretty sweet deal.
The "Showgirls" star won't have to pay a dime in child support for their 2 daughters -- ages 13 and 9. Also shocking ... DeMonica gets their house, but Glenn will stay in it RENT-FREE until next January!
In addition to the house, DeMonica gets a 2013 Ford Explorer XLT, and some Disney animation cells. He gets a vintage 1969 Mercedes 280.
Glenn better save up over the next 6 months -- DeMonica tells TMZ they're going to revisit the child support issue once he moves out in January.
Still, exes living under the same roof? What could go wrong ... said Deion Sanders.
Tells Katharine McPhee ...
Suck It! I'm Keeping My Husband
7/3/2014 12:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Mary McCormack has learned to forgive -- though we doubt forget ... the actress and her cheating hubby Michael Morris look very much still together despite those pics of him kissing Katharine McPhee.
Mary and the former "Smash" director caught a flight out of LAX on Wednesday, presumably going on a romantic vacay for the long weekend (their 3 daughters were nowhere in sight).
Double M doesn't seem like the type to gloat -- but it's worth noting ... Kat's marriage has tanked. She filed for divorce from her husband Nick Cokas in May.
Bye Bye Gwyneth, Hello Meat!
I'm No Longer Vegetarian
7/3/2014 7:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Coldplay's front man dropped the meat bomb on BBC Radio ... when the host asked him about his long held title as one of the world's sexiest vegetarians.
Chris revealed it's no longer true because he does eat meat, but only things he believes he can kill himself, and as a result his choices are kinda limited. You gotta hear Chris explain what's definitely NOT on the menu.
As for why he WAS on the vegetarian train -- Chris didn't exactly blame Gwyneth, but instead said he did it because his daughter Apple does it.
Divorcing Rodeo Star ...
7/2/2014 10:11 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Jewel and her rodeo star husband Ty Murray are divorcing after 6 years of marriage ... but she's doing it so sweetly ... it almost makes Gwyneth Paltrow look bitchy.
Jewel just made the announcement on her blog, but says they're parting as friends who are devoted to their son Kase ... who turns 3 this month.
In her post, Jewel says she and Ty have been engaged in a difficult "but thoughtful and tender undoing of ourselves" and says they're taking apart their relationship "stich by stich, and releasing each other with love."
It's unclear if Jewel's actually filed divorce papers yet.
"Tender undoing of ourselves." Take that conscious uncoupling!
I Haven't Seen Paula
in Four Months!
7/2/2014 9:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
All of Robin Thicke's on-stage begging and pleading hasn't worked ... because he says he hasn't seen his estranged wife Paula Patton in FOUR MONTHS!!!
Thicke -- who's made very public apologies at the Billboard Music Awards and the BET Awards -- was on "EBRO in the Morning" Tuesday on HOT 97 ... when he said he's been persona non grata with Paula for months now.
But sources connected to the ex-couple tell us that's not entirely true -- he and Paula have literally seen each other several times ... particularly when they hand off their son for visits.
So, maybe Robin's just looking for more sympathy -- but at the same time he admits Paula hasn't even heard most of his new album (which bears her name).
Sounds like it's time for a new approach.
