NBA's Stephen Jackson

I'm Still Bangin' My Estranged Wife

... So Call Off Divorce!

2/24/2015 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0223_stephen-jackson_renata_instagramIf you're still intercourse'n ... there's no divorce'n -- so says ex-NBA star Stephen Jackson ... who's asking a judge to throw out his wife's divorce petition because they're still knockin' boots like a married couple. 

It's one of the strangest legal docs we've ever seen ... Jackson says the judge should NOT grant his wife Renata a divorce because he believes she's just trying to score a prenup payout ... when in actuality, they're still very much a couple. 

FYI -- Jackson says Renata's payout under the prenup is based on his net worth at the time she filed for divorce in 2013  ... and since he was still playing in the NBA at the time, the payout would be significantly larger.

But in new docs filed in state court in Georgia, Jackson says he can prove his marriage wasn't dead then ... and it isn't dead now ... because he's still banging his wife on the regular.  

In fact, Stephen says he often still takes her on fancy vacations to places like the Bahamas, Cancun and Jamaica ... and presumably bangs her there too. 

Which leads to this explanation Stephen included in new court docs -- "Despite filing for divorce, [Renata] continued her relationship with [Stephen] in an effort to 'have her cake and eat it, too.'"

We can't imagine this case is going to have a happy ending for Jackson -- because if he gets his wish, he's still gonna have a pissed off wife on his hands. And if he loses, he's gonna have to cut a big, fat check. 

At least he's still getting laid. 

Idina Menzel And Taye Diggs

We're So Rich ...

Divorce is Easy

EXCLUSIVE

Taye Diggs Idina Menzel Divorce
Idina Menzel and Taye Diggs have made it clear in their divorce settlement ... they're both so loaded they can live nicely on their own without bleeding the other dry. 

The settlement makes it clear ... each has accrued earnings and earning capacity that makes spousal support irrelevant. You don't see that much in divorces.  

Their parting of the ways seems completely amicable ... they agreed to share custody of their 5-year-old son, Walker.

Not amicable enough for you? They're also splitting all parenting costs right down the middle, so no child support either.

As previously reported, the couple has lived apart since 2013 but recently decided to pull the plug and end their 10 year marriage.

Kinda makes you want to get a divorce ... kinda.

Amber's So Cold

She Denied Our Kid His Birthday Party!

2/22/2015 8:13 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0222-wiz-khalifa-son-amber-rose-birthday-TWITTER-01Wiz Khalifa threw a big party Saturday for his son's birthday ... but the rapper says his 2 year-old never showed because ex-wife Amber Rose denied the kid a good time out of spite.

Wiz posted sad pics of the party with the caption, "only thing missing was Bash" -- referring to their son Sebastian

Sources close to Wiz say Amber was supposed to bring Sebastian to the party and they would celebrate his birthday together ... as parents.  Wiz says everyone was there and he's heartbroken the boy couldn't celebrate with civil parents.

Khalifa put Amber on blast,  saying, "ive never voiced my true unhappiness out of fear of the person I was with and what she would do to make me more unhappy of anyone knew."

Wiz goes on to champion father's rights, saying, "Standing up for all fathers who need, deserve, or can't find help," adding, "As a man, and a dad you'll feel like, 'I got this.'  But who got us?"  In other words, the system doesn't protect fathers.

022215_amber_rose_launchFor her part, Rose posted videos of their son before and after the party.

She's got way too many feuds going on.

Jeremy Renner

Responds to Divorce

What's Your Problem? It's All Black & White

EXCLUSIVE

0220_jeremy_renner_Sonni-Pacheco_getty_tmz_2
Jeremy Renner
has fired back at his estranged wife who filed for divorce, making it clear that there are no real issues, so why is she fighting so fiercely?

Renner filed legal docs in which he asks for joint custody of their kid. Sonni Pacheco is asking for primary custody, even though they've been sharing 50/50 custody of 23-month-old Ava since their split late last year.  

Jeremy also makes it clear in his papers, filed by disso-queen Laura Wasser, there's a prenup and his earnings are his and his alone. He wants the prenup enforced, and that's that.

Sonni has made a bunch of claims, including an allegation that Jeremy's house is not safe for Ava, but we're told Sonni had no complaints when she lived in the house the entire time they were married.

Sonni's legal docs also suggest Jeremy's not anteing up in the child support department, even though we're told he's been paying her since they split.

Short story ... it sounds like he's saying this is a simple divorce, but she wants a fight.

... Mike's Wild Night Was Last Straw

EXCLUSIVE

Hilary Duff Divorce

Hilary Duff has finally pulled the trigger on her marriage, filing for divorce from hubby Mike Comrie ... and it looks like Mike's wild night in Bev Hills was the tipping point.

Sources close to the couple tell TMZ ... it's NOT a coincidence Duff filed her docs a day after the Daily Mail reported Mike was drunkenly propositioning women at Mastro's steakhouse in Bev Hills.

Hilary -- who hired attorney Laura Wasser -- cites the usual irreconcilable differences as the reason for divorce. She lists the date of separation as January 2013.

In the docs, Hilary asks for primary physical custody of their son, Luca, who turns 3 next month. She wants Mike to have visitation, but sources connected with the couple say she's concerned that his partying and drinking could adversely affect their kid.

The couple has a prenup, but neither spouse is struggling in the money department. Hilary wants her earnings and other stuff to remain her stuff.

Hilary and her NHL star husband were married in 2010 and when they split Hilary's mom, Susan, said, "They're better friends than a married couple."  

Since their split they have been seen together from time to time, but now it's pretty clearly over and out.

Pamela Anderson

Rick Salomon's Dog Is Fine!

But His Daughter Calls Cops

EXCLUSIVE

022015_pam_anderson_launch_v5

Pam Anderson claims the ruckus over the allegedly "missing" dog Bumblebee is all for nothing ... but Rick Salomon's family is crying foul -- and Rick's daughter got into a standoff at Pam's house.  

After a rough day that included her husband filing for annulment, Anderson went out in Bev Hills ... and told our photog the family pooch was fine, and simply at the groomer. She laughed off the idea she was holding the pup hostage. 

But sources close to Salomon tell TMZ the family went to the groomer Thursday ... and came up with no pooch. Rick's fam claims Pam is lying about Bumblebee's whereabouts. 

Meanwhile, Rick's daughter Tyson had her own issues. Law enforcement sources tell us L.A. County Sheriff's deputies had to go out to Pam's house Thursday night when Pam refused to let Tyson in to grab some of her stuff. We're told Pam never caved ... turning Tyson and deputies away. 

Bottom line ... looks like Rick and her girls will have to sue to get anything out of the house.

Ballistic Over Hubby's Annulment Docs

Dog Now Missing

EXCLUSIVE

Bumblebee
the dog is MIA from Pamela Anderson's Malibu compound, and her estranged husband thinks it's all out of revenge because he filed to annul their marriage.

Sources close to the couple tell TMZ ... Pamela saw our post Thursday morning that Rick Salomon has filed for annulment in Las Vegas, claiming she defrauded him into marriage.  

We're told after Pam saw the story, Rick's daughter Tyson -- who was living at the home --  had just walked in the door and Pam ordered her to get out. As Tyson got ready to leave, she asked where her dog Bumblebee was, because the pooch was nowhere to be found.

We're told Pam told Tyson she had the dog taken to a boarding facility, but the place says they never had the dog. 

Short story ... Bumblebee's whereabouts are a mystery.

Hubby Seeks Annulment

She Defrauded Me!

EXCLUSIVE

0219-pam-anderson-rick-salomon-01

Pamela Anderson defrauded Rick Salomon into marrying her ... so Rick claims, because we've learned he's just filed legal docs asking a judge to annul his marriage.

TMZ broke the story ... Pam filed for divorce in L.A. last week, citing irreconcilable difference. But this week Rick filed his own legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- in Las Vegas, claiming the marriage should be nullified because Pam deceived him.

Sources connected with Rick will not disclose the nature of the fraud, however they say Rick has solid proof she bamboozled him into marrying her.

The couple married in January 2014.

Rick is also asking the judge to rule there is no community property in the marriage. Rick is loaded ... winning huge sums in poker last year. We're told his fortune is vast ... hers is not.

The annulment was filed by Rick's lawyer, Richard Schonfeld, who also represented Britney Spears in her Las Vegas annulment.

Rick obviously is also asking the judge to deny her spousal support.

Amber Has Our Son Living in Filth

Here's Proof [PHOTOS]

EXCLUSIVE

Wiz Khalifa Amber Rose Custody BattleWiz Khalifa will offer photo evidence Amber Rose's home is too dirty and unsafe for their toddler -- which is why Wiz wants to change their custody agreement.

TMZ broke the story ... Wiz is gearing up to demand an increase in the amount of time he gets with their 1-year-old son Sebastian -- and we're told these photos will be part of his case.

One of the images shows dog poop strewn across a backyard patio. As we told you one of the complaints from Wiz's camp is Amber's dog eats its own feces and then licks Sebastian's face.

Other pics include a knife left out on a counter top and loose garbage in the yard. 

Amber hasn't responded to calls for comment. She's been kinda busy ... much like Wiz.

Goodbye to You

EXCLUSIVE

0218-michelle-branch-teddy-landau-tmz-getty-01

Michelle Branch has finally decided to make it official after separating from her husband more than a year ago ... she has filed for divorce.

Branch and hubby Teddy Landau are ending their nearly 11-year marriage. She says it's the usual -- irreconcilable differences.

It sounds like things are amicable ... Michelle filed her divorce docs without a lawyer ... pro per as they say in the legal biz. But judging from the docs, it looks like they've gotten some legal help as well as help from business managers, because they're working out a property settlement.

Michelle wants joint custody of their 9-year-old daughter, Owen Isabelle. 

And the singer clearly has a type. Teddy is a bassist, but she's currently hooking up with Chris Null, a bassist for Dead Sara.

We'll end on that note.

Wasted with Chicks

I'm Not Talkin' Amber Rose Tonight!

EXCLUSIVE

021815_wiz_khalifa_launch_v2Wiz Khalifa stumbled out of a Hollywood club just before 2 AM Wednesday, and his posse railed at our photog for daring to ask the question Wiz himself raised about Amber Rose being a bad parent because she stays out too late.

Wiz was feeling no pain as he left Emerson Theatre. TMZ broke the story ... he's gearing up for a custody fight, claiming Amber Rose cares more about partying than parenting.

No doubt he has every right to party when he isn't taking care of 1-year-old Sebastian, but listen to the outrage from his friends when the subject is raised.

Meanwhile back at the ranch Trinidad Carnival, Amber Rose is partying it up in barely any clothing.

Thank God for nannies.

My Ex Is Hurling Death Threats

LAPD Investigates

2/18/2015 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Terrence Howard Ex Wife Death Threats"Empire" star Terrence Howard doesn't just have a TV ex-wife threatening him, he has a real life one he says is targeting him for death ... and the LAPD is on the case.

TMZ has obtained a search warrant to determine if Michelle Ghent is behind a barrage of Instagram threats, including, "I'm watching you! I'm coming for ... LOL. You two won't live to see your children." The "you two" appears to refer to Terrence and his new wife.

0217_terrence-howard-instagram_splitAnother Instagram post warns his wife, "Your husband is cheating on you! Just thought you should know." The message was sent with a photo of Terrence and another woman.

And there's this ... there's a pic of a pill bottle that belonged to Terrence with the caption, "Oh dear, look what I found. Do hope you refilled. It's one of the things you can't leave home without."

The LAPD claims in the search warrant affidavit, there's reason to believe Michelle is behind the postings. One reason ... the Instagram accounts have no followers except for her. 

The LAPD got a judge to sign the warrant and they have gone on the hunt to find out if she's behind it.

Terrence says he's been getting nasty posts for a year ... and he filed a police report because he believes she's the culprit.

Michelle tells TMZ, she did not send the messages and claims the LAPD has talked to her and she's no longer a suspect. 

The LAPD says it's still an open investigation.
