Jesse Williams Wife Wants Sole Custody Cites Rage and Dating Habits

8/15/2017 9:49 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jesse Williams' wife says he is a reckless parent who has fits of rage and worries he exposes their kids to a "revolving door" of women ... this according to new, explosive divorce docs.

Aryn Drake-Lee has unloaded on the "Grey's Anatomy" star, demanding sole custody for a variety of reasons. She says the children are being emotionally compromised because Jesse has exposed them to at least one intimate partner and possibly more. She wants the judge to order him to keep girlfriends away from the kids until he dates them for 6 months.

Aryn goes on, claiming Jesse has a violent temper and cites a road rage incident last month with his next-door neighbor. She says after an argument the neighbor flipped off Jesse, and he then "aggressively pursued him in his car" with their 2 kids inside. She says Jesse threatened to kill him.

She's also pissed off that Jesse posts pics of their kids on social media and says he's doing it as a "buffer for the negative talk about him in the media."

As we reported, it appears Jesse is dating Minka Kelly and that might be behind some of her fury. Jesse has insisted his 13-year relationship and 5-year marriage didn't end because of a "cute girl."

She says the kids are showing psychological signs of damage and wants the judge to correct things, stat.

Brad and Angelina No Reconciliation Divorce Talks in High Gear

8/15/2017 8:11 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are deep in divorce talks, and there is NO talk of reconciliation, contrary to some media reports.

Several stories have surfaced recently suggesting the divorce is on hold and they are thinking of rebooting the relationship. Sources connected to the couple say nothing could be further from the truth.

We're told both sides are hashing out both child custody and property settlements, and the divorce is full steam ahead.

One reason they will never get back together ... Angelina made extremely damaging allegations against Brad, claiming he was abusive to their kids. The investigations triggered by the allegations ultimately exonerated Pitt.

Brad hasn't hidden his feeling about the children -- they're at the top of his priority list, so it seems they're at the point of no return in terms of reconciling.

Mel B Life Imitates Art I'm Dating a Beverly Hills Cop!!!

8/14/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Mel B is either smitten or paying homage to baby daddy Eddie Murphy, because she's dating the guy he played in one of his iconic movies ... a Beverly Hills cop.

Sources in the know tell us she's been seeing a guy on the Beverly Hills PD for a few months.  She's moved at lightening speed ... splitting with husband Stephen only months before she started dating the officer.

They met through mutual friends.  She started dating him immediately and it took only a matter of weeks before he was staying at her home 5 - 6 nights a week.  She's nuts about him.

This is a little eerie. Our sources say one of the reasons she likes him around so much is that he carries a gun, and she's scared of estranged hubby Stephen Belafonte.  TMZ broke the story, Mel B has a restraining order against Belafonte, and one of her concerns is that she says he has a gun he's not allowed to possess because of a prior crime.

They're keeping the relationship "low key" ... both for his sake and hers.  We're told his life is "complicated."  But that hasn't stopped him, however, for showing up to tapings of "America's Got Talent" -- in plain clothes.  He has also accompanied her to a number of social engagements.

Not everyone in Mel B's life thinks it's a swell idea she's dating the guy ... partly because of him and partly because she just got out of a bad relationship.

Still ... there's something symmetrical about Mel B going for a Beverly Hills Cop.

Chris Pratt The Father & the Son Do Church Post-Split from Mother Anna

8/13/2017 10:52 AM PDT

Chris Pratt is sticking to what he knows in the fallout of his separation from estranged wife Anna Faris ... and that involves family and faith.

Chris was out Sunday taking his 4-year-old son, Jack, to Church in L.A. -- with Anna nowhere in sight. It appears to be the first time he's been seen public since his split from Anna last weekend ... when the ex-couple announced they were separating on social media.

We broke the story ... Chris and Anna are parting ways because of differences in their vision on family and work -- she wants to have more kids and to settle down in L.A., while Chris doesn't want to do either considering his movie career is just now taking off.

Still ... Chris seems to be trying to keep things normal between he and his boy. As normal as they can be without mom, anyway. Also, check out his ring finger ... stripped.

Tennis Star Victoria Azarenka Custody War Forcing Me to Skip US Open

8/11/2017 12:40 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

Tennis superstar Victoria Azerenka is furious a judge has given her a real-life Sophie's choice  -- tennis or her kid -- that is making her drop out the US open. 

The former #1 player in the world is locked in a nasty dispute with Billy McKeague -- the father of her 8-month-old son, Leo. The two split back in July.

Here's the problem ... McKeague filed custody papers in L.A. (where Victoria has a home) and the case has gone to a judge who told Azerenka she's not allowed to take the child out of California while the custody trial rages ... and it's not going to end until October at the earliest. 

The dilemma -- the US Open kicks off August 28 in New York. Victoria will not leave her child -- whom she's been breastfeeding until a month ago -- with McKeague because she doesn't believe he's capable of caring for the kid.  

Her attorney, "Disso Queen" Laura Wasser, told the judge her client is more than willing to buy a plane ticket for McKeague and put him up in a hotel for the 2-week tournament, but the judge said no.

Wasser also told the judge her client already has a valid custody order from Belarus, the country where Victoria, Leo and and Billy are all residents, so it should be game, set, match. But for some reason the judge won't defer to the Belarus court.

EXCLUSIVE

David Ayer -- the guy who wrote "Training Day," "S.W.A.T." and a bunch of other action thrillers and also directed "Suicide Squad" -- wants out of his 14-year marriage.

David filed for divorce Wednesday in L.A., citing irreconcilable differences. He married Mireya on September 26, 2002 and lists the date of separation as July 29.

They have 4 minor children -- 14, 12, 11 and 8. David is asking for joint custody.

David -- who also wrote "The Fast and the Furious" and "End of Watch" -- will be writing a big check, because we've learned there was no prenup, and we're told he's made a bloody fortune.

Courtney Love Dodging Depo Over Kurt's Guitar ... Claims Daughter's Ex

8/7/2017 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Courtney Love's dodging making a decision on who gets Kurt Cobain's famous guitar -- their daughter, Frances Bean Cobain, or her estranged husband ... according to new legal docs.

Isaiah Silva -- who's in an ongoing divorce with Frances -- claims Courtney's refused to come to the door twice when his investigators tried to serve her with deposition papers. According to the docs ... she's also ducking the L.A. Sheriff's Dept.'s attempts to do the same.

Silva wants a depo from Love because he claims she has "personal knowledge of many of the facts" surrounding the 1959 Martin D-18E acoustic guitar Kurt played during Nirvana's "MTV Unplugged."

As we reported ... the guitar's been a heated point of contention in the divorce. Frances says the "priceless family heirloom" belongs to her, but he says it's his because she gifted it to him.

We reached out to Courtney ... her rep tells us she's already publicly stated the guitar is a family heirloom and doesn't belong to anyone other than family, which echoes what she told us in July 2016. The rep also says Courtney hasn't been home much ... she's been filming in Canada.

Casey Affleck Files Mysterious Docs But Divorce Settlement Reached

8/4/2017 11:29 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Casey Affleck and his estranged wife, Summer Phoenix, will NOT have a nasty, drawn-out divorce -- despite a weird filing -- we've learned it's all settled already.

Casey filed docs Monday responding to Summer's divorce petition ... filed that same day. Much of his reads just like hers -- irreconcilable differences, 2 kids and same date of separation. However, in his docs, Casey says he wants the court to block Summer from getting the spousal support she had requested in her docs.

On paper, seems like a dogfight is brewing ... but sources connected to the ex-couple tell us they've already hammered out a settlement, just 4 days after she filed. We're told Casey is paying spousal support under the agreement.

It's unclear why he checked the box to block spousal support only to cave a few days later -- but what's done is done.

'RHONY' Star Luann D'Agostino Divorce Drama Was Not On Camera

8/3/2017 4:03 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

'Real Housewives of New York' star Luann D'Agostino timed her divorce just right to avoid it playing out on the show.

Our 'RHONY' sources say production for this season wrapped a couple months ago ... so if there were any juicy spats in the days before Luann and Tom D'Agostino's divorce announcement, cameras missed the action.

D'Agostino also dodged any mention of the big D during the reunion, which was taped a few weeks ago. Our sources say the couple's sometimes rocky relationship was discussed, but there wasn't a peep about a split.

As we reported, Luann announced Thursday she and hubby Tom were calling it quits ... just 8 months after they tied the knot.

We're told producers are scrambling to figure out a way to weave the divorce into the reunion episode. Take 2?

'RHONY' Star Luann D'Agostino Splitsville

Exclusive Details

'Real Housewives of New York' star Luann D'Agostino and her husband are calling it quits.

Sources close to Luann tell TMZ ... Tom D’Agostino didn't get along with Luann's family and it seemed his inappropriate behavior in the past was too much for the family to get over once married.

She made the shocking announcement Thursday on Twitter, saying, "It's with great sadness that Tom & I agreed to divorce. We care for each other very much, hope you respect our privacy during this sad time!"

Luann -- who got married just 8 months ago -- had a tumultuous relationship with 2 of her 'Housewives' co-stars, Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan. Luann constantly bickered with them because Ramona and Sonja would bring up the fact they used to date Tom. Awkward.

Luann and Tom started dating in late 2015 and have no children.
