Keshia also makes a point to demand she be awarded all property and assets she had before the two married, which includes even more 'Cosby' cash.

And get this ... in Ed's divorce filing, he stated they had no kids, but Keshia makes it a point to say a child IS expected of the marriage. In other words ... Ed's the daddy.

Mary J. Blige Files For Divorce From Husband/Manager

7/28/2016 9:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0728-mary-j-blige-kendu-isaacs-tmz-instagram-01Mary J. Blige just pulled the plug on her marriage to her husband/manager ... filing for divorce to end her 12 year marriage, TMZ has learned. 

Blige just filed docs seeking to end her union from Martin "Kendu" Isaacs -- who she married back in 2003. Blige lists the date of separation as "to be determined" -- unclear why.  

Blige cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split. The couple has no children together. 

There is one interesting note ... Blige is asking the judge to block Isaacs' ability to get spousal support. The document does not say if there is a prenup.  

We reached out to Blige and Isaacs -- so far, no word back. 

Unclear what went wrong -- but back in 2014, Blige talked about the challenges of dating her manager during an interview with Stella Magazine. 

"He always has my back -- he’s going to fight to the death for Mary J Blige. The downside is that there’s no separation -- it’s on all the time."

"When you don’t feel like answering to your manager, he’s still your husband. If one of you doesn’t want to talk about something right now, you have to respect that. And you have to respect each other’s space."

Blige also famously banned Isaacs from having friendships with other women.

"All females for me, all guys for him. There’s none of that, 'Oh, that’s my female friend. Oh, that’s my guy friend.' No. Not in a marriage, I’ve never seen that work."

A rep for Blige tells TMZ, "Ms. Blige is saddened to say it is true that she has filed for divorce saying sometimes things don't work how we hoped they would... but, there is a divine plan and a reason for everything. Mary will continue writing & working on her album which is due out later this year along with her world tour. She thanks and appreciates her fans for their support and love through this very difficult emotional time."

Keshia Knight Pulliam Bring On the Paternity Test ... I've Got Nothing to Hide

7/27/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Keshia Knight Pulliam paternity testKeshia Knight Pulliam is positive Ed Hartwell is the father of her unborn child, and she's down to prove it to him.

Keshia was completely blindsided by the ex-NFL player's divorce petition earlier this week ... according to a source close to the former 'Cosby Show' star. We're told she's secure in the fact she's been 100% faithful to her husband of just 7 months, and has no idea why he'd assume otherwise.

Also, she has no objection to taking the paternity test he's requesting.

Keshia's pissed Ed ran to court to file divorce docs. We're told she firmly believes couples should work things out because that's what her parents have done to stay together for almost 40 years.

That kind of happy ending doesn't seem to be in the cards -- we're told Ed's no longer living in their house. As one source put it, "What kind of man files for divorce from his pregnant wife?"

Johnny Depp Amber's Gonna Ruin My Credit

7/26/2016 5:46 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0725-johnny-depp-amber-heard-getty-03Johnny Depp believes he can't get a fair shake in his courtroom showdown with Amber Heard until his lawyers grill her in a deposition -- and if that doesn't happen it could cost him dearly.

Depp's team was in court Tuesday for an emergency hearing to settle critical issues in the case. His side says Johnny has every right to confront Amber over her "meritless" accusations of domestic violence.

In docs, Depp says if he can't depose her he'll be behind the 8 ball in his effort to defend himself, and could lose the case. And there's this -- he's worried a loss could affect him emotionally and financially. He points out a permanent restraining order would appear on future credit checks.

Yes, even with an estimated net worth of $400 mil ... he's worried about credit.

As we reported ... Amber's depo has been delayed because they couldn't agree on a date, but the judge settled the matter. It's now scheduled for August 6 -- a Saturday.

Amber Heard to Johnny Depp Stop Stonewalling the Divorce

7/26/2016 9:17 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0726-johnny-depp-amber-heard-tmz-01Johnny Depp's making it damn near impossible to get the divorce settlement rolling because he's put up a bunch of roadblocks in the case ... according to Amber Heard.

In Amber's legal docs, obtained by TMZ, she accuses Johnny of refusing to hand over financial docs needed to settle the divorce case. As we've reported ... Depp's team wants her to sign a non-disclosure agreement before giving up the goods.

But in the docs, Amber says the non-disclosure agreement is ridiculous because it calls for a $100k fine each time his financial info is leaked -- not just by Amber, but even by her forensic accountant. Amber says it's an outrageous demand ... and just a ploy to thwart real progress in this case.

Of course, Johnny's team would say ... the fine won't matter if the agreement isn't violated.

The other issue -- setting a date for Amber's deposition. His side has proposed August 3 and 8, but Amber says she's scheduled to be in London working on "Justice League." She's offered to fly back on a Saturday, but she says Johnny's team isn't willing to work weekends. 

Both sides are due in court Tuesday to hammer out the issues.

Keshia Knight Pulliam Husband Files for Divorce ... She's Pregnant and Pissed

7/26/2016 6:36 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0726-knight-hartwell-tmz-instagram-01Keshia Knight Pulliam's pregnancy just got complicated -- her ex-NFL husband, Ed Hartwell, is divorcing her ... one week after she announced she's expecting.

Hartwell filed for the split Monday in Atlanta, and according to the docs Keshia is contesting his petition ... so we can safely assume she ain't happy.

"The Cosby Show" kid just revealed on July 18 she was pregnant, but Hartwell has some doubts he's the father. He told YBF.com -- which first reported the split -- "Right now, the only thing I want is a paternity test for the baby."

They only dated for 4 months before getting married in January of this year. Hartwell was previously married to Lisa Wu and appeared on 'Real Housewives of Atlanta.'

Bottom line -- short marriage with all the signs of a long, messy divorce. Keshia has 30 days to file her response.

Jeremy Renner's Ex-Wife He's Stiffing Me On Preschool Tuition

EXCLUSIVE

0725-jeremy-renner-sonni-pacheco-TMZ-INSTAGRAM-01Jeremy Renner's a deadbeat dad who refuses to pay for preschool and catch up on child support ... or so claims his ex-wife.

Sonni Pacheco says Jeremy time and again refuses to pay his half of the $1,600 monthly preschool tuition for their 3-year-old daughter, Ava. In new docs, obtained by TMZ, Sonni also says Renner's fallen behind on child support to the tune of $48,367.

As we reported ... Jeremy and Sonni struck a deal last year for Jeremy to pay $13k a month in child support as part of their divorce settlement -- and he seems to think that should be more than enough dough.

Sonni's docs include a text exchange where Jeremy says, "I'm not sure why you keep coming after more money here Sonni. I don't have the cash to give you. I'm sorry you can't figure out how to care for [Ava] with over 300k."

She's asking the court to make Renner pay for all of Ava's schooling, and all of the back child support.

'Friends' Creator Marta Kauffman Single Again ... And Loaded

7/23/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0722-marta-kauffman-michael-skloff-GETTY-01The co-creator of "Friends" just struck a divorce settlement, and we've learned it involves a yearly residual check that would make your eyes pop out.

Marta Kauffman and Michael Skloff have just ended their 31-year marriage. According to legal docs filed with the court, and obtained by TMZ, they're both doing well but it looks like she gets more.

The big-ticket item ... Marta gets one "Friends" residual check a year, and our sources say it's a doozy ... many millions of dollars. According to the settlement agreement, she gets to keep 75%, and as soon as she gets the check she must write one to Michael for 25% ... pronto.

BTW ... Michael gets his own residual check ... he composed the show's theme song, and gets a big fat check he gets to keep all to himself.

There are multiple houses ... and she gets 3 out of the 4, including the super-expensive one on Broad Beach in Malibu.

Marta is a prolific producer, who also created "Grace and Frankie," which is currently on the air. She also gets residuals from "Joey," "Dream On" and "Veronica's Closet." And the money from all these shows is hers and hers alone.

You gotta have Friends.

0721-amber-heard-elon-musk-TMZ-01Amber Heard -- who's in the throes of a divorce with Johnny Depp -- is spending a lot of time with a guy who makes Johnny look like a pauper -- billionaire extraordinaire Elon Musk ... TMZ has learned.

Our sources say Amber has known the Tesla inventor for several years, but in the last few months they've been spending a lot of time together.  

Just last weekend Amber and her sister were hanging out in Elon's hotel bungalow in Miami.  We're told she had a 1-on-1 dinner at his L.A. house 2 weeks ago. We're told she recently went to Elon's L.A. area office to spend time with him. And we're told he's paid several visits to her home.

No one in Amber's camp is calling it "dating," but we're told the amount of time they spend together has definitely increased.

Elon -- who's worth an estimated $12.7 billion -- is also going through a divorce with Talulah. They married, divorced, remarried and she filed for divorce for a second time in March.
