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.

Burt Reynolds

Loni Anderson Has Gotten Her Last Dime From Me

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.

0923_chris-vance_gettyChris Vance, the star of "Transporter: The Series" is going through a bitter divorce and things have gotten so bad, his soon-to-be ex-wife was granted a restraining order.

According to the docs, Vance's wife Monira Dailly says his drinking has gotten out of control and she fears he will forcefully take their 2-year-old son. Dailly says Chris is verbally abusive -- calling her the "c-word" and a "f**king idiot" in front of their child.

That's not all ... Dailly says Chris has accused her of giving him STDs -- something she says was later proven false. 

Dailly was granted a protective order and Chris must stay 100-yards away from her and their son.

Chris says the allegations his estranged wife is making are completely "unfounded and false," and his only concern is that the divorce process does no harm to their son.

A Horse, Of Course!!

Cuoco posted the photo Saturday morning saying, "Welcome to the family, Zaza!" Kaley is no stranger to horses ... she's ridden them competitively in the past, so the new furry friend will come in handy.

And if anyone had any doubts about the split, you'll notice she's sans-wedding ring. 

A rep for the "Big Bang Theory" star confirmed to TMZ Friday Cuoco and Sweeting decided to end their marriage but it's unclear if divorce docs have been filed.

Casper Van Dien

I'm Divorcing Catherine Oxenberg

9/25/2015 4:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Casper Van Dien's princess is no longer his queen -- he's divorcing Catherine Oxenberg after 16 years of marriage.

Van Dien filed divorce docs in L.A. earlier this week, citing irreconcilable differences. He and Oxenberg have two daughters ... 14-year-old Amanda and 11-year-old Celeste, and he's asking for joint physical and legal custody.

The "Starship Troopers" star also doesn't want to pay spousal support to Catherine ... who famously starred on "Dynasty" back in the '80s. Casper isn't asking for spousal support either -- so, he's hoping for a clean break. This is the 2nd divorce for both of them.

Oxenberg is real life royalty, sorta. Her mother is Princess Elizabeth of Yugoslavia ... which doesn't exist anymore.

'Black-ish' Star Anthony Anderson

Wife Files for Divorce

9/25/2015 1:38 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0925-anthony-anderson-tmz-01Anthony Anderson is about to be married only on television ... because the "Black-ish" star's wife has filed for divorce. 

Anderson's wife Alvina filed the document, citing irreconcilable differences.  

The couple was married in 1995 (they were high school sweethearts), and have two children together, ages 19 and 15. She's asking for joint legal custody of the minor and primary physical custody, with Anthony getting "reasonable visitation."

Alvina is asking for spousal support.   

This is a little odd ... Alvina lists the date of separation as April 1, 2014 ... that's before "Black-ish" even premiered. It's unclear if she'll lay claim to Anthony's "Black-ish" money.

In addition to the hit ABC show, Anderson also hosts a show on the Food Network, "Carnival Cravings with Anthony Anderson."
