Gloria Govan

I Never Banged Colin Kaepernick

No Clue On Barnes Feud

5/22/2015 1:13 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Ex "Basketball Wives" star Gloria Govan is so over the rumors about her and Colin Kaepernick ... she's now addressing them -- and wants everyone to know the 49ers QB never crossed her end zone.

Gloria was talking to our photog in West Hollywood about her estranged husband, Clippers star Matt Barnes ... and his very public hatred of Kaepernick.

Just a few weeks ago, Barnes called Kaep "a hoe" on Instagram -- which is why our guy asked Gloria if she knew what was behind the beef.

Watch ... Gloria took the ball and ran, first telling us -- "There's been a bunch of different rumors" about her and Colin hooking up. But she says, "I've never had a thing with Colin Kaepernick."

Double G seems to think fans blame her for their feud, but she tells us it's something else altogether.

Bobby Flay's Estranged Wife

He's Rich Because of My Mouth!

5/21/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0520-bobby-flay-stephanie-march-TMZ-01Bobby Flay's estranged wife claims she was the famous chef's secret sauce ... that nothing went on a plate in his restaurant unless it passed her taste test.

We've learned Stephanie March has filed legal docs to set aside their prenup, claiming in part it's unconscionable to enforce an agreement that leaves her with table scraps when she's the reason he became wildly successful.

She claims Bobby told her she has "an amazing palate" and relied on her to taste test his recipes. She says she sampled a number of items at their home and gave thumbs up and down, which led to the finished product. She specifically cites Bobby's NYC restaurant, Bar Americain.

We're told in her argument to the judge she zeroes in on Bobby's famed NYC restaurant, Bolo, (which, ironically, didn't last). Stephanie says during a vacation to Spain she pushed him into including tapas on the menu -- something she says he was against. But Stephanie says she prevailed, and the restaurant became an enormous success, earning 3 stars from the New York Times.

Stephanie says she was also heavily involved in the design and ambience of all of Bobby's restaurants, right down to music and lighting.

Stephanie is trying to undo the prenup, which provides her with $5k a month. She'd also get around $1 million as a buyout for the family home.

We're told Bobby is firm ... his business is successful because of him, not Stephanie.

Ed Asner

Come and Get It, Ladies!!

Finally Files for Divorce

5/14/2015 3:14 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0513-ed-cindy-asner-tmz-getty-02Ed Asner has filed for divorce, and the big question is ... why?

The 85-year-old actor -- who became famous as Lou Grant on "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" --separated from wife Cindy Asner in 2007, but for some reason he didn't pull the trigger until this month ... 8 years later.

The couple married in 1998, and it seems the split was bitter. Ed tried to cut off her temporary spousal support the year after they separated, saying she was making no effort to become self-supporting.

According to divorce docs, they reached some sort of financial settlement in 2009, but years passed and no one filed for the big D. 

We don't know what motivated Ed to make the move, but clearly he does not want death to be the factor that parts them.

No comment from Ed's camp.

Model Carmen Ortega

Rosie's Wife and I?

It's a Beautiful Thing

5/14/2015 2:26 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Video

Why Rosie O’Donnell’s estranged wife Michelle Rounds used a smoking hot L.A. model as serious eye candy ... is something ordinary looking people could never understand -- according to the model, anyway.

We got Carmen Ortega outside Warwick Nightclub in Hollywood, and asked about her night out with Michelle a couple weeks ago. They looked really cozy together, but more than that -- they looked like they were trying to piss off Rosie.

She says the explanation for their "friendship" is simple ... if you're beautiful. For some reason we don't get it, but ... you can give it a shot.

Carmen does have an opinion on Michelle and Rosie's divorce war though. Check it out.

Mr. Brainwash

I Ain't Banksy ...

But I Am Single

5/13/2015 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0512-tear-mr-brainwash-debora-debora-guetta-tmz-guetta-01

Unfortunately for Mr. Brainwash life is not imitating art these days -- the eccentric graffiti artist famous for his “Life Is Beautiful” tag ... is in the middle of a divorce. 

Mrs. Brainwash ... who actually goes by Debora Guetta ... cut bait on their almost 19 year marriage, citing irreconcilable differences in divorce docs filed last month. She says they separated on April 20.

Debora is requesting spousal support from Brainwash -- who starred in the 2010 Banksy doc, "Exit Through the Gift Shop." She also wants sole physical and joint legal custody of their 13-year-old son. She's cool with Brainwash having visitation. 

As far as assets go -- no details in the docs, but keep in mind some of Brainwash's pieces sell for well over $100k ... so chances are there's some cash to split up. 

The biggest tragedy here ... we still don't know who the hell Banksy is!

Rosie O'Donnell

No Drug Testing for Her

In Custody War

5/9/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0505_Michelle-Rounds_ROSIE_ODONNELL_tmzRosie O'Donnell will NOT have to submit to random drug testing during her custody war, but Rosie's wife says she'll go back to court again because she believes their kid is in danger.

We've now learned the judge shot down Michelle's drug test request saying it wasn't necessary, at least for now. We're told the judge is satisfied Rosie is a capable parent so there will be no strings attached to their current 50/50 custody agreement.

But the judge did rail on both Rosie and Michelle for blabbing to the media about the case. He ordered both of them to stop talking and posting parent-related matters on social media.

As for tone, it's as nasty as it gets. We're told on their way out of court, Michelle's lawyer told Rosie's attorney to "f*** off." 

Red Hot Chili Peppers

Ex-Guitarist Shredding Again ...

This Time It's His Marriage

5/8/2015 12:52 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0507-john-nicole-getty-youtubeThe "Blood Sugar Sex Magik" is dead for John Frusciante and his wife -- the former Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist is getting divorced ... TMZ has learned.

Frusciante and Nicole had a decent run of nearly 4 years, before she filed the divorce docs in L.A. ... citing irreconcilable differences.

The couple didn't have any kids -- so child support won't be an issue -- but Nicole is asking for spousal support, and attorney's fees. 

John, who's retained Laura Wasser as his attorney -- will have to give it away, give it away, give it away in the name game. Nicole wants to drop Frusciante, and go back to Turley ... her maiden name.

And now, a love song ... 

Selena Gomez & Miranda Kerr

When (Alleged) Eskimo Sisters Meet ...

5/7/2015 8:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Selena Gomez Miranda Kerr TogetherSelena Gomez and Miranda Kerr came face-to-face and cheek-to-cheek ... and given their history, it could have been a tad AWWK-WARD.

Quick check of the scorecard -- Gomez and Kerr allegedly hooked up with each other's exes ... Justin Bieber and Orlando Bloom ... which allegedly led to Orlando taking a swing at Justin in Ibiza last summer. They all deny the allegations.

Now cut to Wednesday in Palm Springs where Miranda and Selena seemed totally cool with each other at a Louis Vuitton event. Sure, they could be faking it ... but we've seen them hang before -- at another LV gathering.    

Overpriced leather -- bringing chicks together since 1854. 

Terrence Howard

Here's How My Ex-Wife

Extorted Me Over My Penis

5/6/2015 9:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0506-terrence-howard-michelle-howard-01

Terrence Howard says he has hard proof his ex-wife extorted him ... threatening to expose details about his genitals to the world unless he paid her handsomely. 

Terrence just filed legal docs in his spousal support war with Michelle, who got 5 years worth of support for a marriage that only lasted a year. It's way more than the norm. 

Terrence now says he agreed to pay her for 5 years because she extorted him, and he says some of it is on tape. He says while they were bickering about the amount of support he'd pay her she threatened to release naked photos and video of him unless she got what she wanted. 

In the docs filed by his attorney Brian Kramer, Terrence says he secretly recorded her saying, "I can make a good $2 million right now ... you want to see your little **** out there in front of TV?"

Terrence says he has her on tape saying she will tell every woman in the world he gave her an STD.

He says she's also caught on tape saying, "Trust me, you're f****** with the wrong person. You f***** with me way too much. I will f****** bury you deep in the ground." 

Terrence wants the judge to throw out the settlement agreement so he doesn't have to pay the balance. The settlement runs for another year, but she'd be entitled to a big chunk of his "Empire" salary, which is expected to swell for season 2.

Katharine McPhee

Touched

By Estranged Hubby

5/5/2015 2:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0505-katherine-mcphee-splash-02Katharine McPhee's estranged husband gave her a hand Tuesday ... a very gentle hand.

It's a stark contrast to her split with Nick Cokas, which allegedly came after Katharine was photographed sucking face with her "Smash" director Michael Morris. Katharine claimed in the documents she was already separated from Nick, but he says they were still together.

But things change ... or do they? A source close to Katharine insists Katharine and Nick had a friendly business breakfast in West Hollywood. He's still involved in her music stuff.

The source also says Katharine has a boyfriend. 

Rosie O'Donnell

Shows Up in Court

For Custody Battle

5/5/2015 11:03 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Rosie O'Donnell just showed up at a New York City courthouse to begin fighting her custody battle in front of a judge. 

Rosie wasn't talkative but showed resolve as she entered the building.

TMZ broke the story ... Rosie's wife, Michelle Rounds, claims Rosie indulges in alcohol and weed to the point she is not capable of taking care of their 2-year-old daughter Dakota ... it's a stark contrast to the various pics we've seen of Rosie and her daughter.

For her part, Rosie says Michelle is a liar whose end game is squeezing money out of her.

Michelle's lawyer will be in court, asking the judge to order Rosie to submit to random drug testing until the custody matter is resolved. Rosie is asking the judge to enforce the prenup -- which has a confidentiality clause -- and gag Michelle. 

Shanna Moakler

Selling Off $2.6 Mil Pain

In The Calabasas

5/5/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0504_shanna_moakler_mansion_launch2All it took was 7 years and a few alleged death threats, but Shanna Moakler is finally ready to say adios to the house she's shared with Travis Barker ... even AFTER they got divorced.

Sources say Moakler is looking to put distance between herself and Travis so she's selling the 5 bedroom, 6 bath crib in the ritzy Oaks neighborhood of Calabasas. Asking price -- $2.6 million. 

The couple divorced in 2008, but continued living together part-time in the Calabasas for the sake of raising their kids. We're guessing cohabitating just became too much when they were both arrested back in December for allegedly exchanging violent threats. 

We're told construction's almost complete on Shanna's new home in nearby Porter Ranch -- and Travis already has his own place in L.A.
