Hilary Duff Divorce

Child Custody Fight On

EXCLUSIVE

0422-hilary-duff-mike-comrie-tmz-02Hilary Duff's estranged husband isn't giving up their son without a fight ... Mike Comrie just responded to her divorce filing, and is demanding joint custody. 

In the docs, the ex-hockey star says he wants to share custody of 3-year-old Luca. As we previously reported ... in her divorce petition, Hilary asked for primary physical custody of Luca -- and only wanted Mike to get visitation.

Sources connected with the couple tell us Hil is worried about Mike's parenting due to his partying ways. In fact, she filed for divorce the day after Comrie was reportedly drunkenly propositioning women at Mastro's in Bev Hills.

Comrie acknowledges they have a prenup -- just as Hilary did -- to sort out their property and support issues, but clearly ... little Luca is going to be a point of contention.

0422-khloe-kardashian-lo-tattoo-instagram-02Another sign Khloe Kardashian isn't over Lamar Odom -- she Instagrammed a photo of her L.O. tattoo ... and punctuated it with a heart emoji in the caption.

Despite the fact they separated in 2013, Khloe has dragged her feet with the divorce -- and we're told she's still conflicted on whether she truly wants to end her marriage to the ex-NBA star. 

This picture seems to support the theory that there's still hope for a reconciliation.

Kris Jenner was in the dark about Bruce's desire to become a woman during their entire marriage ... this according to sources directly and closely connected to Kris.

We're told Kris insists the subject never came up again during their entire marriage. She also says she never saw Bruce dressed as a woman during their entire relationship.

Our sources connected with Bruce tell a different story ... that she knew full well he was very conflicted about his gender. 

Kris tells our sources the subject of sexual transition did not come up until after they were divorced. In fact our sources say Bruce told the girls about it before Kris.

One other thing ... we're told reports that Kris might take legal action against Bruce if he speaks negatively about her are untrue.

EXCLUSIVE

Sherri Shepherd has lost her epic battle with her soon to be ex-husband ... she's officially listed as the mother of the child who was born via surrogate ... TMZ has learned.

Shepherd and her estranged husband, Lamar Sally, have been battling in court since the child's birth in August and it's been all about the moolah. Sherri claims she was tricked into having the child with Sally and therefore has no connection or responsibility to the child.

A Pennsylvania judge begged to differ, ruling her Hancock belongs on the birth cert.

Lamar says he's ecstatic with the ruling telling TMZ, "I want her to go on television and apologize the same way that she went on there and accused me of being a gold digger and tricking her into having a baby."

We're told Shepherd was a no-show at the hearing.

The two still need to meet in front of a judge in L.A. to sort out the child support situation. He wants her to help take care of the child.

EXCLUSIVE

0417-sub-mariah-carey-tmz-01
Mariah Carey is clearly influenced by a much younger singer, because she's saying she'll never ever ever get back together with Nick Cannon.

We know Mariah has seen our video of Nick, telling us he's not closing the door on the possibility of giving their marriage another try.

But sources connected with Mariah tell TMZ, she's out of that game. She likes Nick, but there's no chance of a romantic reconciliation. 

She's not in the market for anyone right now. Mariah has a residency in Vegas that's just weeks away. She's also into raising the twins. When she's not working she goes to Eleuthera, her private Island in the Bahamas.

It looks like she may have a case of post breakup hotness, right?

If things do go down divorce road ... it won't be too costly, we're told the ring cost $398.

EXCLUSIVE

Missy was the one who filed in L.A. last week, and the docs make it sound like this is gonna be pretty amicable. According to Missy, neither of them wants spousal support, and there's no community property ... so, no reason to squabble over it.

Little did we know.

Shelly Sterling

It Wasn't About the Money

... I Wanted to Stick It to Stiviano!

4/15/2015 3:58 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0415_shelly_sterling_v_stiviano_TMZShelly Sterling says she didn't go after V. Stiviano for the money -- SHE WANTED JUSTICE -- and says she plans to give away every single cent she won in her crushing court victory to a charity. 

Our sources say ... Shelly was "out for blood" from the start -- and really wanted to put the screws to Stiviano for all the crap she put her family through. 

In fact, Shelly told the Associated Press ... her lawsuit was about getting even with Stiviano who had "harmed" her in so many ways.

Of course, Sterling won a $2.6 million judgment against Stiviano -- ordering her to fork over the keys to her $1.8 million condo AND $800,000 in cash. 

Sterling says she doesn't even want the money -- 'cause she's a billionaire -- and to prove it, she's giving every cent to a worthy charity.

How benevolent. 

Donald Sterling

Side Piece Ordered to Return $2.6 Mil

breaking news

0415-v-stiviano-sterling-tmz-01

Donald Sterling had no right to shower V. Stiviano with lavish gifts, no matter how good of an archivist she was, because the loot he used to buy all the goodies wasn't his to give away.

A judge just sided with Shelly Sterling, concluding Shelly was still very much Donald's wife when he pulled his shenanigans -- giving V. a duplex, a Bentley, a Range Rover and a Ferrari totaling $2.6 mil.

But don't roll out the tow truck -- Shelly doesn't want the cars ... she wants the money. According to the ruling, $830k of the $2.6 mil is due in cash -- with $430k earmarked for the value of the vehicles. 

V. tried in vain to convince the judge Donald and Shelly were separated at the time she scored the goods, so he had every right to shell out the cash. The judge begged to differ, saying Donald had no right to use the Sterling money to fund V.'s lifestyle.

So the question ... how does V. make it right?   

Return, return, return. 

Dina Lohan

Hey Michael, Pay Up

... Or Get Locked Up

4/15/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0414-dina-michael-lohan-tmz-02Michael Lohan needs a ride to the bank ... because the Florida judge threatening jail time has suspended his license until he shells out more than $16k in back child support to Dina Lohan.

Sources close to Dina tell TMZ, a judge called Michael on the carpet for cruising around Boca Raton in his flashy Maserati while he owes thousands. The judge revoked Michael's passport and stripped him of his driving privileges ... until he pays up. 

We're told Michael phoned in during the hearing and promised the check's in the mail. The judge has heard that line before, and warned if the check doesn't come by April 24th, it's off to jail.

0414-CAR-SUB-WATERMARK-dina-michael-lohan-tmz-02Sources close to Michael say a deadbeat dad wouldn't buy a $50k Raptor truck for his son ... and insists he pays his kids directly because he believes Dina just spends the money on herself.  

Michael gave the judge proof he's bypassed Dina with the payments, but apparently the judge was not persuaded and ordered him to cut a check STAT. 

The Lohans definitely never disappoint.
