Reggie Bush Alleged Baby Mama In Nasty Divorce ... NFL Star Named In Docs

1/22/2017 1:00 AM PST
Exclusive Details

1120_reggie_bush_monique-exposito_tmz_instagramMore drama in the Reggie Bush alleged baby scandal ... the woman claiming to be his mistress is MARRIED and now her husband wants out. 

As we previously reported, a Miami nightclub waitress named Monique claims Bush (who is also married) sperminated her last year and approached him about child support. The baby is due in February. 

Now, we've learned Monique was married at the time of the alleged tryst -- and her husband is PISSED. He's filed for divorce and it's clear from the docs he's convinced Bush is the father of her unborn kid. 

He's named Bush several times in his divorce papers and is demanding she hand over any documentation proving he could be the father ... such as DNA tests, confidentiality agreements or payments he may have made to her. 

The husband also notes he didn't have sex with his wife around the time of conception -- so there's no way HE could be the daddy.

A rep for Bush had previously called the baby allegations "rumors" and noted he's still "happily married."

We've also learned a lawyer for the husband reached out to Reggie's camp to try work out a private deal to keep the NFL star's name out of the court papers. Obviously, no deal was reached.

'Flip or Flop' Dominates NBA as King of Ratings

1/20/2017 4:07 PM PST

0120-flip-or-flop-happy-HGTV-01We don't do ratings stories but this is interesting ... "Flip or Flop" -- despite the off-screen drama from its hosts -- annihilated Thursday's cable TV lineup to win the ratings game.

The show snagged more than 2 million viewers. #2 was an NBA game that scored 1.4 million viewers. The other NBA game was #3 at 1.2 mil.

It's definitely good news for Tarek and Christina El Moussa. Lots of people thought their TV gooses were cooked now that they're getting unhitched.  

We're told the network's mulling over whether to bring back the show for another season but clearly conflict and angst are good for business.

Cuba Gooding Jr. to Wife Enough Separation, Let's Get Divorced!

1/19/2017 4:22 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0119_cuba_gooding_jr_Sara-Kapfer_tmz_getty-2Cuba Gooding Jr. apparently got tired of living in marital limbo, because he's responded to his wife's petition for separation with a full-on divorce petition.

Cuba belatedly filed his response to Sara Gooding's 2014 separation docs. The O.J. actor is asking for joint legal and physical custody of their 10-year-old daughter, and he's also willing to show Sara the money in spousal support.

There's a catch when it comes to splitting all the assets. Cuba wants all of his earnings to remain his and his alone from the date Sara filed for separation. That includes O.J. Simpson $$$.

The couple was married in 1994, the year O.J. ...

Amber Heard When $7 Mil Ain't Yours Count Your Pennies ... To 99

1/19/2017 7:28 AM PST

0119-amber-heard-99-cent-store-PCN-01Amber Heard is the thriftiest millionaire on the planet.

Amber was snapped leaving a 99 cents store in L.A. Wednesday, and she certainly looks like she looks content with whatever bargains she's got in her purse.

In fairness, even though she got $7 mil from Johnny Depp in her divorce settlement, she's said the money's going to charity, so she's still a girl on a budget.

Lamar Odom Apologizes to Khloe for Drug Benders ... Vows to Get Her Back

Breaking News

Lamar Odom says he's grateful to Khloe Kardashian for staying by his side through his drug addiction and recovery ... and he wants her back.

Odom opened up about his battle with drugs on "The Doctors" -- and after completing a 30 day stint in rehab, he says one thing is perfectly clear ... "I want my wife back."

"Khloe is important to me," Lamar said ... "She's been through all of this with me and she stood right by my side so I just wanna repay her."

The issue, of course, is that Khloe not only filed for divorce ... and got it finalized ... she's already moved on to another NBA star, Tristan Thompson.

Still, Odom says he has a message for Khloe and the other family members he cares about.

"I just want to tell them I'm sorry for all that wasted time and wasted energy ... that in my addiction I didn't know who I was ... so I couldn't take care of myself. I damn sure couldn't take care of anybody else."

UPDATE:  Depp's lawyer, disso-queen Laura Wasser, tells us, "We are all pleased to put this unpleasant chapter in Mr. Depp and his family's lives behind them.  Having his request for entry of dissolution judgment granted today made it a particularly lucky Friday the 13th."

Johnny Depp gave Amber Heard more than $7 million in their divorce settlement ... she also gets doggies Pistol and Boo, Arrow the horse and a Mustang (Ford, that is).

Don't feel too sorry for Johnny. He keeps all of his properties, scattered all over the globe ... L.A., Colorado, Kentucky, the Bahamas and France. He also gets to keep his 42 vehicles, including cars, motorcycles, boats and golf carts.

As for the $7 mil, Johnny has already paid $200k. He owes $1 million more 3 days from Friday. He'll owe another mil next month, another mil in May, and still another mil in August. And then there's $500k in August and finally $2.3 mil in February 2018.

And that's all she wrote.

Robin Thicke Video Shows Singer Shut Down By Cops In Custody War

1/13/2017 4:06 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Robin Thicke brought the cops to Paula Patton's home Friday morning because she allegedly violated their custody order by not allowing him to take their son ... but the video dramatically shows Robin walked away empty-handed.

TMZ broke the story ... Robin won a victory in court Thursday when a judge refused to limit his custody to daytime monitored visits ... this after the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services launched an investigation into allegations Robin was using excessive corporal punishment on 6-year-old Julian.

We're told Robin called Paula after the hearing to take Julian for the night -- which the custody order allows him to do -- but she went radio silent.

On Friday morning Robin went to Paula's Malibu home with L.A. County Sheriff's deputies and the court order. We're told the deputies went inside the house and spoke with Julian and he said he was scared of his dad and didn't want to go with him.

You see Paula in the video -- obtained by TMZ. Robin is out of frame. The deputies explain they will not take the child against his will.

One source connected with Robin says the couple is now close to reaching some middle ground on how to deal with the custody issues.

Johnny Depp, Amber Heard Divorce Final, Finally

1/13/2017 11:39 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0113-amber-heard-johnny-depp-tmz-02Johnny Depp and Amber Heard will be single before dinnertime, because the judge is about to seal the deal and make their divorce final.

Amber was trying to delay the final divorce so she could take Johnny's deposition, but the judge turned thumbs down in a hearing Friday, saying enough was enough.

TMZ broke the story ... Johnny had agreed to pay Amber $7 million to settle the divorce, but Amber attempted to renegotiate the settlement. The judge ruled the $7 mil settlement stood, and that's what she'll get.

Johnny's lawyers asked the judge to impose a $100k sanction on Amber for delaying the proceeding, but the judge rejected that. She wanted Johnny to pay her attorney's fees but the judge said each should foot their own bills.

Robin Thicke, Paula Patton Custody War with Allegations of Physical Abuse Hard Feelings Over Alan's Funeral

1/12/2017 2:43 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0112-paula-patton-robin-thicke-tmz-02Robin Thicke and ex-wife Paula Patton have been embroiled in a nasty custody fight over their 6-year-old son. It's escalated to a Child Services case over alleged physical abuse, and Robin just scored a legal victory.

Sources familiar with the case tell TMZ ... Julian told school officials at the beginning of  the year his dad had spanked him ... more than once. The school reported the incident to the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services on January 3rd, and the Dept. opened an investigation.

Paula then began denying Robin access to their son, and filed an emergency order asking the family law judge to restrict Robin's contact with Julian to monitored daytime visits only.

According to legal docs Paula told Robin, "Julian is scared of you."

Paula says in her declaration, the day before Julian told the school, he told her that Robin spanked him "really hard."  He demonstrated and hit Paula on the back so hard she said, "ow." Julian then said it was actually worse than that.  

A school official also submitted a declaration saying Julian told her Robin frequently "punches" him very hard. 

Robin says in legal docs, "On a very rare occasion and only as a last resort, I will use light spanking, but it is consistent with the law -- open hand on the butt. This is the type of discipline to which Paula and I agreed during our marriage." 

There's also a declaration from a nanny who claims she has seen Robin smoke marijuana on several occasions in front of Julian. And there's this: Paula says at Julian's kindergarten graduation last June, Robin showed up drunk at 8:30 AM and was "hooting and hollering and making inappropriate jokes" in the Catholic church.

Robin claims this is all about his decision to block Paula from attending his dad Alan's funeral last month. He says in docs, "Paula did not have a positive relationship with my father and often made negative comments to me about my father. As such, she was not welcome at his funeral."

Sources connected to the case tell us there was a hearing Thursday morning and the judge denied Paula's request to limit Robin's joint custody and also a request for drug testing.

As for DCFS, we're told social workers have interviewed Julian twice and also interviewed Paula. Robin is being interviewed Thursday afternoon.

The DCFS case is ongoing.

NFL's Josh Brown Officially Divorced From Wife He Abused

1/11/2017 12:45 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0104_josh_brown_molly_brown_divorce_art_tmz-getty-2Josh Brown's marriage to the woman he admittedly abused is finally over -- and he's going to be paying her A LOT of money ... this according to court docs obtained by TMZ Sports.

The docs show Molly Brown separated from the ex-New York Giants kicker on May 22, 2015 ... the same day he was arrested for domestic violence.

That charge was eventually dropped. Brown admitted to "abusing" his wife but later insisted the abuse was NOT physical.

The divorce was finally granted on Dec. 28 ... ending their 8 year marriage.

The docs show Brown has been ordered to pay $15,000 per month in spousal support to Molly for 24 months (totaling $360k). He can afford it, Brown reportedly made more than $20 million in the NFL.

As for their 6-year-old daughter, Molly gets primary custody and Josh gets visitation. He's also been ordered to pay $4,000 per month in child support.

The docs also note that Josh will continue to seek therapy for the domestic abuse issues.

As for Josh, he's vowed to change his ways and leave a "positive legacy."

Phaedra Parks Apollo Can't File for Divorce That Ship has Sailed

1/10/2017 10:48 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0110-phaedra-apollo-tmz-bravoPhaedra Parks says her ex is not only a felon ... he's slow on the uptake and she wants a judge to throw him out of divorce court.

Phaedra filed legal docs calling BS on Apollo's divorce petition. She says she filed for divorce first, and has already obtained a judgment.

It's unclear why Apollo isn't just dropping his belated divorce filing. She says he pretended not to know she filed, but now that he does, the question remains ... why not drop it?

Apollo's lawyers tell TMZ ... they are going to drop his divorce petition because the judge Phaedra's filing is inclined to undo the judgment because it was handled unfairly ... Apollo didn't have a legal team when Phaedra appeared in court and got her judgment.

His lawyers tell TMZ, the judge unfairly distributed their property in her favor, and will now give Apollo his day in court to argue what he believes is an equitable distribution of assets as well as a fair custody arrangement.

Amber Heard, Johnny Depp Full-Blown Mutual Attacks

1/10/2017 9:04 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0110-amber-heard-johnny-depp-TMZ-03Johnny Depp and Amber Heard are fighting as fiercely against each other as they did when they broke up.

Amber just filed legal docs claiming Johnny has defied their settlement by refusing to pay her installments for the $7 million settlement they struck. Johnny has fired back that Amber has dragged her feet in the settlement and not signed the documents needed to seal the deal.

Johnny, who is asking the judge to slap Amber with $100,000 in sanctions, strongly insinuates Amber doesn't really want a divorce ... because she's reveling in the public attention. Johnny's lawyer says in legal docs, "It is clear that she is intent on prolonging resolution and continuing litigation as long as the public's attention will allow."

Amber says in her declaration, it's Johnny who has dragged his feet in the divorce. Amber says in her docs, "I want my life back. I want to be divorced from Johnny now."
