Katharine McPhee Divorce Finalized ... 'Smash'ing Victory for Nick

2/10/2016 2:53 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

021016-katharine-mcphee-divorce-tmz-03Katharine McPhee's divorce has been finalized and Nicholas Cokas won the battle of when they separated ... which means he's walking away with a lot more cash. 

Cokas is getting spousal support ... plus they're splitting a lot of the dough Katharine's made as a singer and actress. For instance, they're going 50-50 on income from her music rights on all songs made during their marriage ... which includes some still unreleased songs. 

They've also agreed to split all income from her now canceled NBC show, "Smash."

Nick and Katharine hugely disagreed on when they separated -- she claimed it was March 2013, while he said May 2014. The final divorce docs say it was 2014 ... which is why they're splitting the "Smash" cash.

As for her current CBS show, "Scorpion" -- they're only divvying up the money from the pilot episode. Her $700k contract with Columbia/Epic Records is also getting split down the middle.

On the all-important car front -- Kat gets her 2012 Mercedes Benz M Class SUV, and Nick gets the 2013 Jeep Wrangler.

Katharine and Nicholas got married in February 2008, and had an ugly break-up when he accused her of banging the director of "Smash."

Rose McGowan Files for Divorce

2/4/2016 4:11 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

020416-rose-mcgowan-divorce-03

Rose McGowan is pulling the plug on her marriage ... filing for divorce.

According to the divorce docs -- obtained by TMZ -- Rose cites the boilerplate "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for ending her 2  year marriage to David Leavitt, who works as a visual artist.

The couple had no kids and we don't know if there's a prenup. Rose's net worth is reportedly around $18 mil.  

The 42-year-old actress is asking the judge to reject any claim for spousal support.

It looks like there won't be much of a fight, because the papers indicate there will be a "stipulated judgment," which sounds like a settlement between the 2 of them.

Master P I'm Not What I Used to Be ... So Back Off Sonya

2/4/2016 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

020316-master-p-tmzMaster P is a shadow of his former self in the money department, so he wants his estranged wife to lower her expectations and he's asking the divorce judge for help. 

The mogul sent a letter to the judge -- obtained by TMZ -- in which he says Sonya Miller is bleeding him dry with $10k a month in child support and more than $16k a month in spousal support.  

He says her taste for the high life is insatiable ... he gave her $8k to find a new place to live and she wants another $20k to get a better crib. What's especially galling, he says, is that she needs a new place because she's alienated her landlord with loud parties and "rude and vulgar" conduct.

Master P says all he cares about is the welfare of his children, and he's distraught that Sonya just sits around and allegedly smokes pot with their 19-year-old daughter, who dropped out of high school.

P was frank in one of the documents, saying, "This is not the 90s, you guys don't know my situation."

It's interesting, Sonya's view is that she helped P build a $200 million empire, and now she wants a big piece of the pie.

EXCLUSIVE

0122-mariah-packer-tmz-getty-01Newly engaged couple Mariah Carey and James Packer have a teeny tiny issue -- they're both married to other people.  

TMZ has learned, Mariah is still not divorced from Nick Cannon. Our Mariah/Nick sources say they have still not fully settled their financial issues, despite the fact there was a very specific prenup.

TMZ broke the story back in August, Mariah felt Nick was dragging his feet to gain leverage in the money department. We got video of her with her lawyers during a Malibu dinner meeting, where they were trying to find some pressure points they could use to make Nick sign off.

We're told Mariah and Nick are now getting along, and they're in the process of resolving the remaining issues so they can finalize the divorce.

As for James, we've learned he's still married to Erica Packer. They separated in 2013 and she's moved on as well ... she's dating Seal. But we're told the laws in Australia have slowed the divorce process way down.

All signs point to a longish engagement ... it's a whole bigamy thing.

1/22/2016 2:07 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Hand Brett Rossi some pom-poms, 'cause the chick is full-on cheerleading for Denise Richards in her battle to get Charlie Sheen to cough up more than a million bucks.

Brett famously ripped Charlie after he revealed he has HIV, and she's obviously very happy to see another Sheen ex opening up a can. Check out the clip ... Denise might appreciate the support, but she'd really love it if Brett got her daughter's names right. 

Denise Richards Charlie Cut My Kids Off And Called Me and My Kids Horrible Names

EXCLUSIVE

1021-charlie-sheen-denise-richards-TMZ-01Denise Richards claims Charlie Sheen  ... has betrayed his own children by turning his back on a trust he created for them .. a trust that promised them a home that he has now taken away ... and Denise also chronicles some shocking text messages she says he sent to their daughters.

Before giving details, we should say Charlie believes this is "a desperate attempt to get more money" ... his lawyer adding Charlie has already paid her almost $20 million, including $660k tax free money every year for the last 9 years. 

Denise has filed massive legal docs claiming Charlie promised that if she moved next to him in a house he had purchased in Mulholland Estates, she and the kids would not be evicted. As we reported, she was also getting $55k a month in child support.

Denise says she was reluctant to move, because of Charlie's history and also because he had apparently informed her of his HIV status, telling her he feared he was terminally ill and "wanted to repair his relationship with his children."

update_graphic_red_bar

7:55 AM PST -- Patty Glaser, Denise's attorney tells us "Not only are Mr. Singer's (Sheen's attorney) about Ms. Richards blatantly inaccurate,  they're also inappropriate, and unprofessional. Ms. Richards is doing everything she can to protect her children from the fallout of Mr. Sheen’s erratic lifestyle and its enormously negative impact on their children."update_grey_gray_bar

Denise claims Charlie has gone off the rails in the last few years, getting hostile and aggressive. She says just before Christmas 2013 Charlie told their kids, "I'm giving all your gifts including the air hockey table to the homeless." She says he then began threatening to evict them.

She also claims she overheard a conversation with 10-year-old Lola in which he called her "a f***ing pig whore" and yelled, "I'm going to kill you and I'm going to kill your mom."

Denise says in Sept. Charlie violated their deal by forcing her and the kids out of the home and not getting them a new place, as he promised. Denise says she and the kids had to get a rental place for $15k a month. She's now spent more than $105k on the rental, which includes the security deposit. 

Denise wants the judge to force Charlie to pay $1.2 million toward the purchase of a home ... money she says he agreed to pay under the trust agreement for the kids.

But what's really shocking about the legal docs are the texts she says Charlie sent in late 2013, including one to Lola, in which he allegedly writes, "Have a merry Xmas with your loser f***s**t mom ... your dad is a rock star genius ... your mom is a puss wart."

There are gut-wrenching letters one of the kids sent Charlie, including one which said, "And why would you say that you want my mother to eat pork and die?"  

We're told Charlie believed Denise was writing the text messages from their daughters' phones, so his nasty responses were intended for Denise and not the girls.

And he attacks Denise's acting, saying, "Bitch couldn't act hot in a fire or wet in a pool."

Charlie's lawyer says, "In addition to what Charlie has been paying Denise, he also pays for school, all expenses and it's still not enough for her. He intends to fight this and believes he will prevail."

Denise's rep tells TMZ, "Denise is fighting for her children. This has nothing to do with her, the money is for her kids. This is about him providing for the children as he agreed to do."

She also notes she and John have lived "an affluent lifestyle throughout the entirety of their marriage," with homes in California and Louisiana. 

Elvira says John is raking in the dough ... more than $83k a month, so she wants a big chunk.

Nikki Sixx My Famous Ex Wins Big ... If I Make $10 Million!!

1/20/2016 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0118_NIKKI_SIXX_Donna-D-Errico_TMZThink Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx can rake in $10 MILLION this year? 

His famous ex-wife sure hopes so ... 'cause if he hits the $10 million mark, she stands to pull in a ton of money in child support ... this according to legal docs obtained by TMZ. 

Sixx divorced former "Baywatch" actress Donna D'Errico almost 10 years ago -- but they have a minor child together ... and Nikki's still on the hook for child support payments. 

Sixx has already agreed to pay roughly $8,200 per month ... but she also gets a cut of any money he makes over $1.6 million ... with a cap if he makes $10 million or more. 

If he hits the $10 million mark, Donna stands to get $252k per year ... not bad considering she claims she's only making $40k annually on her own. 

Nikki just wrapped up his farewell tour with Motley Crue -- and it's a good bet he made some real money.  

Fingers crossed, Donna.
