1229-ben-mendelson-wife-emma-forrest-divorce-TMZ-TWITTER-01"Rogue One" star Ben Mendelsohn barely had time to enjoy his movie's big premiere -- his wife filed for divorce just 7 days after it opened.

Emma Nadine Forrest filed legal docs, obtained by TMZ, which has all the makings of an uphill battle for Ben. Emma's asking for physical custody of their 3-year-old daughter.

According to the docs ... Emma -- who's a British author -- and Ben officially separated December 1 because of irreconcilable differences. They got married back in June 2012.

She's also asking for spousal support.

Ben played the role of Orson Krennic in the blockbuster film.

T.I. & Tiny Don't Stick a Fork In 'Em Just Yet

12/28/2016 12:21 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

1228-ti-tiny-tmz-02There's still hope for T.I. and Tiny ... because we're told they're still very much on talking terms despite the divorce ... and there are major signs they could call the whole divorce thing off. 

TMZ has learned ... after Tiny filed for divorce Dec. 7, the two have gotten together in person at least twice and sources very close to the couple tell us "things got romantic."

We're told there are still major issues with the relationship -- the word that keeps being thrown around on both sides is "trust."

At the core ... T.I. and Tiny have been together for nearly 20 years and really do seem to love each other.  

By the way, T.I. was at Tiny's home around Christmastime and they got along great.

Bottom line ... if Vegas took action on these two, we'd bet on a reconciliation.

1228-marc-anthony-shannon-de-lima-tmz-getty-01Marc Anthony has filed for divorce from his third wife, Shannon De Lima.

They've already divided up the property in a confidential settlement. They say the split is amicable.

The couple announced their separation last month, one day after after J Lo and Marc kissed on the lips at the Latin Grammys.

'Supergirl' Files For Divorce ... From 'Glee' Star

12/27/2016 5:00 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

_1227-melissa-jenner-blake-jenner-divorce-TMZ-01The woman who plays "Supergirl" is super over her marriage ... and just filed to divorce the former "Glee" star she married back in 2013 ... TMZ has learned. 

Melissa Benoist just filed court docs seeking to end her 4 year marriage to Blake Jenner ... who played Ryder Lynn on "Glee" after winning the role on Oxygen's "The Glee Project." 

Both 28-year-old Melissa and 24-year-old Blake later got roles on CW's "Supergirl" -- where Melissa plays the main superhero ... and Blake appeared on 2 episodes.

In the court docs, Melissa cites "irreconcilable differences" for the split -- and wants to block the court's ability to dish out spousal support to either of them. 

They have no kids ... so no issues there. 

One last thing, she wants to change her legal name back to Melissa Benoist ... and drop the Jenner thing for good. 

Seems to be the only person in Hollywood who doesn't want to be a Jenner these days. 

T.I. Tiny Files for Divorce

12/27/2016 3:40 PM PST

1227-ti-tiny-divorce-tmz-04T.I.'s wife, Tiny, wants out -- she filed for divorce.

Tiny filed legal docs earlier this month in Georgia's Henry County. They got married back in 2010 and have 3 kids together -- 2 sons and 1 daughter.

We're told the rapper and Tiny had been going through a rough patch that started several months before an awkward photo surfaced showing Tiny pictured with the rapper's nemesis, Floyd Mayweather, and Mariah Carey at her Halloween party.

1024_floyd_tiny_mariah_getty_subAt the time, Tiny chalked to pressure into taking the photo next to the guy T.I.'s had beef with in the past. You'll recall the rapper and Floyd were involved in a crazy brawl on the Vegas strip back in 2014.

The divorce was first posted on TheDirty.com.

Brad Pitt Angelina's Hurt Our Kids Just to Grab a Headline

12/22/2016 10:22 AM PST
Breaking News

1215-brad-pitt-angelina-jolie-tmzBrad Pitt has fired back at Angelina Jolie ... essentially claiming she's a bad parent for putting their family drama on blast for public consumption.

Brad just filed legal docs asking for an order to seal their file. Angelina had previously filed unsealed documents alleging Brad had parenting issues that made it too risky for him to have unmonitored visits with their 6 kids. She also alleged Brad had a lot to hide about his conduct.

In Brad's new legal docs, he says Angelina knows better ... they are famous people and the kids are damaged when she airs their dirty laundry in public. He suggests Angelina going public has humiliated and embarrassed their kids and could even endanger them.

And there's this ... in the docs Brad's lawyer says, "[Angelina] apparently has no self-regulating mechanism to preclude sensitive information from being placed in the public record, or she has other motives."

Brad asked for an emergency order sealing the case but was shut down, so now he's filed a formal motion to seal the case ... something the judge indicated he would grant.

Matt Barnes Officially Divorced After Writing Huge Checks

12/21/2016 12:45 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

1220-matt-barnes-gloria-govan-tear-tmz-01Matt Barnes is officially a single man ... and all it cost him was HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS ... TMZ Sports has learned.

Barnes and Gloria Govan broke up in 2014 after 1 year and 11 months as man and wife. They have twin boys together who were born back in 2008. 

Things were amicable between the two at first, but their relationship took a massive hit in 2015 when she rebounded with Matt's ex-teammate, Derek Fisher ... and y'know ... they fought.

Now, we've obtained court docs that show Matt and Gloria are officially divorced -- and they've both agreed on child and spousal support.

For the kids, Matt paid $5,000 per son per month in child support in 2016 ... but that number goes to $10k per kid per month moving forward until the kids are 18.

For Gloria, Matt paid her $20k per month in spousal support from Jan. 2016 to Dec. 2016, totaling $240,000. And that's it. No more spousal support from 2017 on.

One last thing -- Gloria and Matt had to go to co-parenting counseling with the hopes they will be able to get along moving forward ... whether Fisher is in the picture or not.

Prince Died Without Paying Divorce Lawyer

12/20/2016 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

1219-prince-GETTY-01Prince might be dead, but that doesn't mean he's off the hook with a divorce lawyer who claims the singer signed off without paying his $600k tab.

Cousins Law Firm in West Palm Beach filed a claim with the singer's estate demanding payment of a $599,735.63 bill.

Patrick Cousins tells TMZ the bill dates all the way back to Prince's 2006 divorce from second wife Manuela Testolini.

Cousins says he and Prince were tight and had an agreement the singer didn't have to pay until all the loose ends were tied up. We asked the lawyer what would take 10 years to complete, but he wouldn't say.

Cousins claims he finished everything on April 1 ... Prince died April 21.

He gets to walk away with most of his fine art pieces ... some worth tens of thousands of dollars a piece. He'll even get to keep his prized horse. Head intact.

'Gotham' Star Morena Baccarin Defeats Ex in Court ... Cleared for Brazil Takeoff with Son

12/15/2016 3:04 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

1215_Austin-Chick_morena-baccarin_TMZMorena Baccarin says her ex-husband's fear of their kid catching Zika in Brazil is a bogus claim made simply to spite her ... and she just won a court battle over the trip.

In a hearing Thursday, the court found Morena's ex, Austin Chick, waited too long to object to their 3-year-old son flying south of the border to visit his dying great grandmother.

His lawyers were demanding the "Gotham" star get their custody agreement authorized in Brazil to make sure he'd get custody if something happened to Morena during the trip. Morena's team, led by lawyer Samantha Spector, says they tried to resolve that issue, but Austin's camp went radio silent for weeks.

The judge ruled there was no reason to block Morena's trip. She told the court she'd hire top-notch security in Brazil and hunker down in her hotel for extra safety.

Only silver lining for Austin -- he's getting their son on Christmas Eve and Day, right before his flight to Brazil.

Steve Francis Divorce Settlement Reached ... Ex Claims He Has Drug Problems

12/15/2016 12:45 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

2014-steve-shelby-francis-tmz-getty-01Steve Francis and his estranged wife are hammering out a divorce settlement ... even though she's calling him out with allegations of drug abuse.

In divorce docs, obtained by TMZ Sports, Shelby Francis claimed Steve has "severe substance issues" ... and asked a judge to order him to undergo random drug and alcohol testing. She also claims Steve's been to rehab "prior to and during the divorce" ... which was filed in June 2015. 

The ex-NBA great has dealt with rampant speculation about possible drug use -- and, in fact, vehemently denied there was an issue when he talked to us last year.

Shelby's lawyer, Chad Pinkerton, tells us the exes reached an agreement through mediation last week. He says final docs haven't been filed, but they're close.

We reached out to Steve's camp, but haven't heard back.

EXCLUSIVE

1214-mohr-cox-tmz-getty-01Jay Mohr and wife Nikki Cox are off again, because he's filed for divorce for the second time.

Mohr had filed to end his 10 year marriage in July but withdrew the petition 6 days later, telling TMZ, he and Nikki were "Very in love. Very happy and that's really all there is."

Things apparently took a turn for the worse, because he filed Tuesday citing irreconcilable differences. This time around Jay wants joint legal and physical custody of their 5-year-old son. He also says they have a prenup that spells out all the financials.

After filing the first time Jay asked for an emergency order for full custody, claiming their child was at risk because of Nikki's alleged drug and depression problem.

NFL's Emmanuel Sanders Pregnant Wife Files For Divorce ... Judge Orders NFLer To Stay Away

12/13/2016 12:46 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

1212_emmanuel-sanders_gabriella-waheed-tmz_instagramThe wife of Broncos star Emmanuel Sanders is pulling the plug on their brief marriage, despite the fact she's about to give birth to their 2nd child any day ... TMZ Sports has learned.

Gabriella Sanders -- who is due this month -- filed divorce docs in Texas at the end of October, a few days before the couple's 3 year wedding anniversary.

According to the court docs, GS says "the marriage has become insupportable because of discord or conflict of personalities," but doesn't say exactly what caused the split.

It doesn't seem pretty, cause the judge gave Gabriella a temporary restraining order to keep the wide receiver away from her and their Texas home until further notice.

The judge did give the NFLer "limited access" to their 2-year-old son and future daughter.

In the docs, Gabriella's also asking for child support and a "disproportionate share" of their assets, because she says the divorce is Emmanuel's fault. 

We reached out to his camp, but they had no comment at this time.

update_graphic_red_bar1:50 PM PT -- Gabriella had their baby girl Tuesday afternoon, and Emmanuel was there in the delivery room. He posted a pic which makes it seem like they buried their differences, at least for today.
