Arnold Schwarzenegger

Dragging Feet in Divorce with Maria

10/10/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1009_ARNOLD-SCHWARZENEGGER_maria-shriver_TMZArnold Schwarzenegger is dragging his feet in his divorce with Maria Shriver, sources close to the couple tell TMZ, and the question is 'why?'.

Maria filed for divorce in July 2011 -- more than 4 YEARS ago. We're told the financial settlement was worked out a long time ago, and all that remains is a sign off. As we reported, there is no prenup, so they're splitting up roughly $400 million.

Our sources say there are no remaining issues, except a simple sign off, but that hasn't happened. As one source put it, "Whenever Maria says she wants to move on with her life, Arnold drags his feet."

Another source says it's not like either needs the divorce for financial reason ... they both have access to more than enough to pay the rent.  

The divorce is there for the taking, if Arnold just puts pen to paper.

RHCP's John Frusciante

I'm Done Paying

For My Ex's Crappy Music Career

10/10/2015 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1009-john-frusciante-wife-nicole-turley-getty-01Red Hot Chilli Pepper's ex-guitarist John Frusciante is making it loud and clear ... his estranged wife, Nicole, is a struggling musician and he's done footing the bill for her to pursue her dreams.

According to new legal docs filed in their divorce ... John says Nicole's request for $75k/month in spousal support is crazy, especially because $21k of that is just to rent a music studio. 

The best part -- John says, "I don't know if you can call her recording efforts a hobby or a past-time ... but it seems improper to characterize Nicole as a professional musician."

Beyond her music habit ... Nicole also wants more than $2,600/month for gifts and expenses for her "adult" brother -- which John finds ridiculous. 

Jeremy Renner's Ex

I'm Afraid Our Kid ...

Will Drown At His House

10/9/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1008_jeremy-renner_Sonni-Pacheco_tmz_splashJeremy Renner's estranged wife thinks his pool is a death trap for their 2-year-old daughter because he won't install a safety fence ... so she's fighting him in court over it.  

Sonni Pacheco's attorney was in court Wednesday in L.A., and told the judge Jeremy's koi pond and pool lack protective fencing. Sonni's afraid little Ava could fall in and drown before Jeremy gets to her.

Renner's side doesn't think a fence is needed because his laser detection system will alarm him if Ava were to fall into the pool or the pond. 

They're also fighting over social media -- Sonni's uncomfortable with Jeremy posting pics of Ava.

We're told the custody battle's gotten so hostile, with neither side budging ... the exes are now willing to go to trial. 

Stevie Wonder

I Just Called to Say I Dumped You

Divorce Final

10/6/2015 2:54 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1006-stevie-wonder-divorce-TMZ-GETTY-01Stevie Wonder is officially divorced from his second wife Kai Millard Morris. 

Under the settlement, Stevie has agreed to pay $25,000 a month in child support for their 2 kids ... ages 14 and 10. Stevie and Kai agreed to joint custody. According to the agreement, Stevie can take the kids on the road when he tours on a limited basis.


Stevie used his thumbprint instead of a signature to sign off on the settlement.

The couple married in 2001 and separated in 2009.  

Shane Mosley

I've Got Millions in the Bank

... But I'm No Mayweather

10/5/2015 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1002-shane-mosley-TMZ-01Boxing was very, VERY good to Shane Mosley -- 'cause the guy has roughly $10 MILLION in the bank, which is awesome ... but nowhere NEAR the kind of money Floyd Mayweather rakes in. 

Mosley had to declare his income and expenses to the court as part of his divorce from Jin Mosley ... and in the court docs obtained by TMZ Sports, Shane states he's got $14.6 MILLION in total assets and $4.8 mil in debts. 

Overall, he's in pretty good shape ... with a net worth of $9.7 million. 

So, what does he spent his money on? 

-- $4,899-per-month on clothes (gotta stay fly) 
-- $11,600-per-month on entertainment, gifts and vacation (gotta do cool stuff) 
-- $4,736 on restaurants (gotta eat) 

But get this ... despite all the cash -- Mosley says he owns an economical and environmentally friendly Chevy Volt (though he also has a Bentley).  

One last thing worth noting ... Shane describes himself as a "semi-retired professional boxer"  -- so, it's possible Sugar Shane could still fight again! 

Red Hot Chili Peppers

Ex-Guitarist's Wife Wants $75k In Divorce ...

Per Month!!

10/3/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1001_John-Frusciante_nicole_getty_youtubeThe estranged wife of ex-Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante says she needs $75k a month to keep the luxury train rollin' down the tracks. 

Nicole Frusciante says in divorce docs the initial $20,000 payment she got from John doesn't cut it. She says it would be an enormous step down from their life as a married couple, with 3 homes, personal assistants and a private music studio.

Nicole says John has closed the vault on their fortune, leaving her with a bank account of under $30k. She wants access to his loot, which she claims hovers around $14 million.

TMZ broke the story ... the couple filed for divorce in May after being married for nearly 4 years. 

Ben Affleck

What's Growing On

... With My Face?

10/1/2015 2:11 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1001-ben-affleck-grey-hair-old-FAMEFLYNET-01Ben Affleck is carefree when he goes back to his old stomping ground -- as in he don't care how long his beard gets or how disheveled his hair looks ...  'cause it's Bahston ya bastahds!

Ben was wicked scruffy and puffy as he walked around South Boston Wednesday scouting locations for his upcoming Prohibition era flick, "Live By Night." He's set to direct and star in the film.

We'll just assume (and hope) he's letting it grow for the role.

Or maybe Jennifer Garner just digs the look.


Pregnant Man Thomas Beatie


After Wife Gets Last Tooth

10/1/2015 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0930-thomas-nancy-beatie-tear-getty-01Thomas Beatie, aka "Pregnant Man," just finalized his nasty divorce from ex-wife Nancy but only after he agreed to hand over his beloved shark tooth collection.

The couple's divorce had dragged on for years and it was ugly ... they originally separated in 2012 and there's footage of Nancy attacking Thomas, throwing their computer in the pool, and at one point, he claimed she threatened to kidnap their kids forcing him to install a GPS tracker on her car.

In the end, they split most things evenly ... down to the custody of their 3 kids and even decided to forgo spousal and child support checks. But, Nancy was still able to sink one last bite ... demanding that she keep Thomas' prized shark tooth collection.

Thomas tells us he began collecting the teeth in 2006 on the North Carolina shore where he sprinkled the ashes of a deceased girlfriend. He'd collected 72 teeth ... even one from a megalodon.

He says he waved the white flag so the divorce could be over, and now plans on marrying his girlfriend Amber.


Brittney Griner Divorce

Pregnant Wife Gets Boot

From Arizona Home

9/30/2015 9:27 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0930-britney-glory-tmz-instagram2More bad news for Brittney Griner's estranged wife Glory Johnson -- she's been officially made persona non grata at the former couple's Arizona home ... despite the fact Glory's pregnant with twins.

TMZ Sports has obtained new court docs filed in the case of the divorcing WNBA stars -- this time, the judge has awarded Griner temporary exclusive use of the home while the couple works to finalize their split. 

According to the docs, Johnson must be out effective immediately -- and has to schedule a date with Griner to go back to the home so she can pick up her personal belongings, including clothing, toiletries and luggage.

But there's a huge catch ... Glory must be accompanied by a police officer, to make sure there's no funny business when she gets to the home. Also, she only gets 20 minutes to get her stuff and leave. 

As we previously reported, the couple broke up just 28 days after their wedding in May -- which followed a nasty domestic violence incident at the home in which they were both arrested.  

Johnson is now pregnant with twins and due in January -- and says she planned the pregnancy WITH Griner ... though Griner hasn't said if she plans to have a role in the kids' lives. 

President of Gabon

Destitute Wife Files for Divorce

... In L.A.

9/30/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0929-gabon-inge-01The President of Gabon in West Africa has 2 wives with very different lives ... one who lives in the presidential palace and the other who's on welfare. Guess who's unhappy and wants a divorce?

President Ali Bongo Ondimba lived in L.A. when his dad was the president. He met a woman named Inge in 1991 and married her 3 years later. They had 3 kids and lived lavishly ... private jets, mansions, cooks, the works. In fact, in 2006, Inge was featured on a VH1 show -- 'Really Rich Real Estate' -- where she bid $25 mil on a Malibu mansion.

But then Ali's dad died and he became President of Gabon, which required him to move back to his homeland. Inge followed him but claims her life was a nightmare. She says witch doctors convinced her husband she was crazy and as a result she was beaten, mutilated and kidnapped.

Inge escaped and came back to L.A. Ali got married to another woman and Inge says he completely cut her off financially. Inge says she hasn't received a dime since 2008. 

Fast forward to September 2015 ... Inge, who says she's living on welfare, filed for divorce. In the legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- Inge says she and her 16-year-old son are living on $524 a month in public assistance.

She's asking for full custody and spousal support.

There's an obvious dilemma -- California courts are going to have a problem getting jurisdiction over the president of an African country.

But Ali may have a problem, too. He married a much younger woman, Sylvia Valentin, and it looks like polygamy may be an issue.

9/28/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0925-reynolds-anderson-getty-01Burt Reynolds has finally put his divorce to ex-wife Loni Anderson to bed ... and it only took 22 years.

Loni filed court docs confirming Burt had paid her the remaining balance on their divorce settlement.

As we previously reported, Burt still owed Loni thousands. Their divorce was finalized in 1993, but Burt declared bankruptcy before he paid her the entire sum.

Loni took him to court last year and a Florida judge sided with her, ordering Burt to cough up the money owed with interest which totaled $154,520.

It was one of the longest and nastiest divorces in Hollywood history.
