Shanna Moakler

I'm Finally Erasing Travis From My Bod

2/2/2015 12:35 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE
Shanna Moakler TattoosShanna Moakler is finally ready to scrub her Travis Barker tattoos off her body ... NINE YEARS after they split up -- and all it took was a few alleged death threats for her to pull the trigger.

Sources close to Moakler tell us she has an appointment next week at a prominent tattoo removal company to start the process. We're told Travis and Shanna's recent arrests for threatening to kill each other ... were the main reason she decided it was time for the change.

We're told she's also moved out of their house ... where they'd been living together on and off since divorcing. 

Shanna has Travis' name inked on her wrist -- and his initials on her neck. 

The challenge for her -- turning a "Travis" tatt into "Hell's Angels."

EXCLUSIVE

James Caan's estranged wife is firing back in divorce papers, and her message is clear -- our son's coming with me, Sonny!

Linda Caan filed her response to "The Godfather" star's divorce petition and she is demanding physical custody of their 16-year-old son Jacob. In his docs, James said he wanted to share physical and legal custody.  

The Caans also don't see eye-to-eye on money. According to Linda's docs ... she wants spousal support from Jimmy ... whereas he asked the court to terminate her right to spousal support.

As we previously reported ... we're told there is NO prenup -- so this one could get nasty.

Reconciliation is probably off the table for Slash ... 'cause less than one month after calling off his marriage, the rocker got matching tats with his new GF ... and then MOVED IN with her. 

TMZ has learned ... the 49-year-old decided to prove his commitment to Meegan Hodges by permanently marking their bodies with a matching set of GPS coordinates.  

And if the tats weren't proof enough of a serious relationship -- we've also learned they've moved into a house together in the deep part of the San Fernando Valley ... with Meegan's two teenage daughters. 

As for the home, it's nice ... 3,120 square feet, 5 bedrooms, 5 baths, a pool and a rooftop deck -- and we're told Slash is leasing it.  

As we previously reported, Slash filed for divorce from Perla Ferrar on December 30th after 13 years of marriage. They have two kids of their own. 

So far, no comment from Perla ... but we're guessing she probably won't be sending a housewarming gift.

We've learned they do NOT have a prenup. Patrick is reportedly worth around $40 million.

The couple has been married for 15 years.

We've now obtained the divorce settlement, and it provides every copy of the Collins' audio in which he confesses to child molestation must be destroyed, with the exception of the original -- which is now in Grant's possession. Grant must deliver the tape to Collins' lawyer, Shawn Holley, who will keep it under lock and key for 10 years and only release it if there's a subpoena.

As for the rest of the settlement, it's pretty much a 50/50 split. As we previously reported the pot is worth around $14 million.

Stephen Collins
 and Faye Grant have settled one of the nastiest celebrity divorces in memory ... TMZ has learned.

Collins, Grant and their lawyers spent the last 4 days trying to hammer out the settlement, to avoid what was certain to be an ugly, public trial set for February 9th.  

Both Collins and Grant were ready to address the audiotape in which Collins confesses to molesting and/or exposing himself to 3 young girls. Grant threatened to raise the issue because she didn't want her settlement compromised in case he got sued, and he says the tape has made him unemployable and therefore he should be socked with a big spousal support tab.

But they worked it out, down to who gets what furniture.

NFL's Marcedes Lewis

Cops Called In Paternity War

Baby Mama Allegedly Flips Out

1/23/2015 4:16 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE
0123-mercedes-lewis-savannah-stern-tmz-01Cops were called to the L.A. residence of Jacksonville Jaguars star Marcedes Lewis Thursday night -- after his baby mama allegedly went berserk when she found out Lewis is gunning for sole custody of their child ... TMZ Sports has learned.  

Lewis has a 5-month-old son with porn star Savannah Stern -- who decided to visit Lewis at his pad, which happens to be in a fancy private building in L.A. 

We spoke with Lewis who tells us ... Stern was served with court papers during the visit -- informing her that he has filed official documents in an effort to obtain sole custody of their child. 

Lewis says Stern began to flip out once she got served -- and began yelling and screaming ... to the point where building staffers decided to call police for help. 

Law enforcement confirms ... cops arrived to the scene around 9 PM and took an incident report but no one was arrested. We're told Stern eventually left the building without further incident. 

We reached out to Stern for comment -- no word back.

Robin Thicke

Puts Paula Patton On Hot Seat ...

In 'Blurred Lines' Lawsuit

EXCLUSIVE
0121-paula-patton-robin-thicke-tmz-01Paula Patton could have Robin Thicke by the short hairs ... again -- she's being called to testify in the court battle over whether he ripped off "Blurred Lines" from Marvin Gaye.

According to court docs ... Robin's estranged wife is listed as a witness for the case which still looks like it's heading to trial. Marvin Gaye III and Robin have been warring over 'Blurred' and a handful of other Thicke tunes. 

Paula is expected to testify about the 2011 song, "Love After War" ... which Gaye thinks copies Marvin's "After the Dance." Paula appeared in the 'Love' music video, and we're told she co-wrote it with Robin.

Going through a very public, painful, drawn out break-up with your ex -- and then calling her to testify on your behalf in a major legal battle ... seems like a recipe for disaster.

However, as TMZ first reported ... Robin actually went to a holiday party at Paula's house -- so maybe the dust has settled. We'll see, when and if she takes the oath.

One thing's for sure ... the video was freakin' hot!

FILES FOR DIVORCE

... After Epic Blowout

EXCLUSIVE

Sports mega-agent Drew Rosenhaus is pulling the trigger on his marriage -- just days after cops were called to his home to break up an epic blowout argument with his wife ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Rosenhaus filed divorce docs in Miami yesterday -- seeking to end his 13-month marriage to real estate agent Lisa Thomson

According to the docs, obtained by TMZ Sports, Rosenhaus says he has claim to their Miami home -- and wants her out of the house, ASAP. 

Rosenhaus also says Lisa signed a prenup before the marriage -- and wants the judge to honor it. The terms of the prenup were not disclosed in the divorce docs. 

We broke the story ... Thomson called police Sunday evening and told them she was verbally attacked by Drew and his brother at their Miami home.

Cops eventually calmed everyone down -- no one was arrested ... but we're told Drew gave Lisa five trash bags and told her to get her stuff out of the house. 

Rosenhaus and Thomson tied the knot in 2013 -- they have no kids together. 

As we previously reported, Thomson recently partied on a boat with Hollywood playboy Dan Bilzerian (pictured below) -- and sources tell us the situation may have contributed to the split. 

We spoke to Rosenhaus who had no comment on the story.

Patricia Arquette

'Boyhood' Plays Out

In Ex's Bitter Divorce

1/20/2015 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE
0116_Patricia-Arquette_tmz_2
"Boyhood" star Patricia Arquette and her son are being dragged into her ex's ugly divorce trial ... and it sounds like they're solidly on his side. 

Back in the late '80s, Arquette gave birth to Enzo -- now 26 -- with then boyfriend, musician Paul Rossi. But similar to the movie ... he split when Enzo was just a month old and remained a present father.

Fast forward to the divorce ... estranged wife Kerry-Ann Johnston-Rossi claims in court docs Rossi is verbally abusive, threatening, and she lives in constant fear. Rossi has fired back that she's a liar, and that's why he's calling Patricia and Enzo to testify on his behalf ... as character witnesses.

The docs say Patricia/Enzo will testify about Rossi's "parenting abilities, lack of any violent or angry tendencies." And according to the docs, Patricia may have harsh words for Kerry-Ann ... regarding her "parenting abilities, her anger and/or violent tendencies."

The trial is set for March. Nothing like having a possible Oscar winner in your corner.

Nick and Mariah

The Cost of Emancipation

from Mimi

EXCLUSIVE
0116-mariah-carey-nick-cannon-tmz-04
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon have a prenup with a confidentiality clause ... and if she blabs out of school she gets socked for twice what he'd have to pay if he violates it.

Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ ... if Nick violates the confidentiality clause he has to pay her a $250,000 penalty, but if she spills the beans she has to pay him $500K.

And the prenup makes it clear ... Mariah came into the marriage with a boatload of money ... Nick, not so much.

The prenup says Mariah is worth $150 million ... she has so much, $30 million is listed as "miscellaneous." Nick came into the marriage in 2008 with a little less than $500K.

He's done well since then, making millions on his various projects, but when they married he ended up buying her engagement ring for $500,000 but took a loan out for $470K. The ring was reportedly worth $2.5 mil, but that's not what he paid.

As we reported ... they've already worked out a full property settlement agreement.
