Rosie O'Donnell's Wife

Rosie Must Be Drug Tested, STAT

5/3/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0501_Michelle-Rounds_rosie_TMZ

Rosie O'Donnell's estranged wife wants a judge to force the famous talk show host to submit to random drug testing until their custody battle is resolved ... TMZ has learned. 

We've learned Michelle Rounds and Rosie will face off in court on Tuesday and the custody of 2-year-old Dakota is at stake. Michelle is gunning for full custody on grounds Rosie is not a present parent because of excessive use of booze and weed. Rosie says it's all a lie and a money grab.

We're told currently they have 50/50 custody. Our sources say if the judge keeps the status quo while the case runs its course, Michelle's lawyer will ask for an order requiring Rosie to submit to random drug and alcohol testing, and if the tests reveal a problem she can then ask for an emergency order.

Rosie tells TMZ, "I'm not commenting on legal issues."

Wife Claims Rosie's Using Kid As a Pawn

5/1/2015 7:14 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Rosie O'Donnell's estranged wife Michelle Rounds wants to make 2 things clear ... she says she's not the one who told TMZ about Rosie allegedly regularly indulging in wine and weed, and the second thing is that it's all going to come out in court.

Rounds -- who's gunning for full custody of 2-year-old Dakota -- was leaving a drug store in L.A. Thursday night when a photog asked her about the bitter divorce.  She says she used to be intimidated by Rosie, but now she's ready for a David vs. Goliath fight.

She's also indignant about Rosie posting a pic of Dakota, asking for a vote.

Mariah Carey

Nick Cannon Diss Song ...

NOT About Nick

4/30/2015 8:32 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

You'd think Nick Cannon would be preparing for war against Mariah Carey after releasing her song, "Infinity," which seems to put him in her crosshairs, but she says it's not ... and he's buying it.

According to our sources, the song is about women in general and how some "lose themselves in their man." We're told Mariah says it is "not specifically about her relationship with Nick." 

As for the lyric that seems to say Nick doesn't have his own money, we're told Mariah was singing about men with no ambition to be successful ... doesn't seem to fit Nick.

Clearly there's no hate on Nick's side ... because he posted a photo pimping her new album.

Rosie O'Donnell's Wife

Rosie's Wine and Weed Habits

Make Parenting Too Dangerous

4/30/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0429-rosie-odonnell-michelle-rounds-getty-02

Rosie O'Donnell's estranged wife claims she wants custody because Rosie drinks too much, smokes too much and has a laissez-faire manner when it comes to raising kids. Rosie's reaction ... her wife's delusional.

As we previously reported, Michelle Rounds is seeking full custody of their 2-year-old daughter. We've learned Michelle claims in her divorce case Rosie drinks a bottle of wine nearly every night, regularly smokes weed and eats edibles, and it gets in the way of parenting.

Michelle acknowledges they have nannies, but a parent still needs to manage the help and she says Rosie is in her own world.

Michelle also claims Rosie has let their 19-year-old son throw parties where the kids all drink, which she believes is irresponsible.

As we reported, sources connected with Rosie tell TMZ Michelle is lashing out because she's pissed over the prenup she signed and is simply a gold digger who's making threats to get cash.

Michelle tells TMZ she was a millionaire before entering the marriage by investing well in the stock market adding, "I will walk away from every dime of Rosie's money if I get full custody." 

Rosie's rep tells TMZ, "This is a distorted perception of Michelle's reality.  It's sad in every way."

Rosie O'Donnell's Ex

Looks Like Someone

Is Trying To Make Rosie Jealous

4/29/2015 2:09 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

So on the same day Michelle Rounds filed for sole custody of the child she shares with ex Rosie O'Donnell, she hit the town with a smoking hot model. What are the odds???? 

Rounds was out Tuesday night at Madera Kitchen where she walked out with her arm around Carmen Ortega ... who once dated Reggie Bush and was also possibly maybe the reason Jason Derulo and Jordin Sparks split. 

We can't say Rounds and Ortega are together. In fact, a rep for Ortega says they're just working on a clothing line together -- but Rounds still went out of her way to snuggle close to Ortega for the cameras to see. 

Not that we can blame her.

Pam Anderson, Rick Salomon

Divorce Settles

Pam Scores $1 Mil

4/29/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0428_pam_anderson_rick_salomon_TMZPam Anderson is a million dollars richer today, and Rick Salomon is a lot happier ... because we've learned they got divorced.

Pam and Rick were in a nuclear battle -- he filed for an annulment, and she filed for divorce. TMZ broke the story, Pam allegedly held Rick's dog Bumblebee hostage for a week, and then launched into a tirade that he was bad at sex ... which didn't jive with various text messages she sent him.

But now we've learned Rick paid Pam just north of $1 million in return for the divorce. But Rick got something as well. Pam was challenging his Nevada residency, claiming he was a California resident who was trying to dodge taxes on a $40 million poker win. Nevada doesn't have state taxes.  

Now that they're divorced, Pam isn't contesting Rick's residency, so she's off his back.

And Bumblebee is back with him, so happy endings.

update_graphic_red_bar8:55 AM PST -- TMZ has received a joint statement from Pam and Rick ... “Public divorces can be harsh and cruel - we apologize to our families and friends for any hurt and embarrassment we have caused-we have come to an amicable agreement and are moving on. There are private and personal family sensitivities to consider and we retract any hurtful comments made in haste and distaste. We wish each other and our families well.”update_grey_gray_bar

1:40 PM PST -- Round's attorney William London tells TMZ that his client is only seeking full custody in the best interest of their daughter, it has nothing to do with money.

Update_Graphic_Bar_Grey_Gray

Rosie O'Donnell is fighting back against her estranged wife, and sources connected with Rosie say the wife is going for full custody of their daughter for one reason ... money.

Michelle Rounds is filing legal docs Tuesday, asking for full custody of their 2-year-old daughter Dakota. Michelle's lawyer told the New York Post full custody is necessary to protect the child's "general welfare."

But our Rosie sources are scoffing, saying that the couple has a prenup and this is nothing more than a money play, adding Rosie is a "devoted mother" and her parenting skills and dedication are well-documented.

The sources say Michelle is trying to hit Rosie where it hurts the most so she'll open her wallet.

One source says, "Michelle can't even raise a dog ... she's given multiple dogs away."

Hilary Duff

My Tinder Profile is Legit!

I've Got 9 Guys Lined Up

4/28/2015 8:06 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

Hilary Duff is a right-swiping fool ... and is not only confirming that rumored Tinder profile really IS her -- but says she's going on her first Tinder date tonight ... with a regular ole non-celeb dude!

Hilary dropped her dating bombshell Tuesday morning with "Valentine in the Morning" on 104.3 FM in L.A. -- and opened up about what she's looking for on Tinder. Hint: shirtless muscle heads need not apply.

Sounds like Duff is kinda hooked on the app ... saying it's the first time in her life she's getting a chance to hook up with a "total normie." It also sounds like she's totally over her estranged hubby, Mike Comrie

Pretty amazing to hear a celeb cop to her (formerly) secret life on Tinder. We sense a surge in subscriptions coming.

Mariah Carey

Rips Nick Cannon

You're Broke and Alone!

4/27/2015 6:42 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF



Forget Jay Z, Dr. Dre and Eminem ... the new king of diss rap is now ... Mariah Carey!!!

Mimi's new song "Infinity" just dropped and she absolutely tears Nick Cannon apart.  

Talkin' 'bout you're mad
Could it be that you just lost the best you've ever had

His fame:

Boy you actin' so corny like Fritos
Wouldn’t have none of that without me, though

And his money:

Is it lack of ice got you so cold?
Have you ever felt this on your own?
Why you tryin' to play like you’re so grown?
Everything you own boy you still owe 

It wasn't long ago that Nick was leaving the door open for reconciliation ... but this song is the equivalent of her slamming that door in his face. And dead bolting it. And putting on the chain.

Khloe and Lamar

Not Ready for Divorce

The Door's Open a Crack

4/27/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0424-khloe-kardashian-lamar-odom-tmz-01

Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom are NOT ready to divorce ... in fact, they're secretly talking.

Sources connected to both Khloe and Lamar tell TMZ, the 2 of them are not romantic and are not talking reconciliation, but they don't want to close the door on the marriage either. That explains why Khloe's divorce has been laying dormant in the courts for more than a year ... the judge has even said if she doesn't s*** or get off the pot, he'll dismiss it.

Our Lamar sources says there's bad blood on both sides.  It's not as if he's begging her to reconcile ... he feels betrayed by Khloe as well. The Lamar sources say she's told him he has to make some sort of "grand gesture" before they can go the next step, and so far he's not willing to do it.

For her part, we're told she has "a big heart" and doesn't want to hurt him by sealing the deal on the divorce.  But it's more than just mercy ... we're told she still has feelings for him.

0422-khloe-kardashian-lo-tattoo-instagram-01As for the pic Khloe posted showing her "LO" tattoo on a gearshift ... we're told it's not a sign she's going back with Lamar ... she just digs her new Bentley.

In layman's terms ... he's not getting paid for the biz. In pimp terms ... bitch better have my money.

Dash's lawsuit was filed on Thursday ... 3 days after he lost custody of their 2 daughters to Rachel -- who claims he's a bad influence on the girls.
