11/25/2015 4:59 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1125-marta-kauffman-michael-skloff-getty-instagram-01Marta Kauffman -- the co-creator of "Friends," one of the most successful shows in TV history -- has ended her 31 year marriage ... TMZ has learned.

Marta and Michael Skloff filed divorce docs Wednesday, along with their settlement ... meaning they worked it all out ahead of time.

Marta, who's worth a reported $200 million, and Michael have 3 grown children, so custody is not an issue.

As for property -- there's a lot of it -- and it's all accounted for in the settlement.  And, we've learned, there's no prenup.

Marta, who's repped by disso queen Laura Wasser, is currently raking in the cash with her Netflix series, "Grace and Frankie."

As for Michael, he's got a big "Friends" credit ... he composed the theme song to the show. 

Shane Mosley's Wife I'M NO BIGAMIST ... Sues Boxer For Defamation

11/25/2015 4:24 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1125-shane-mosley-tmzShane Mosley's wife is coming out swinging ... claiming the boxer DEFAMED her when he falsely claimed she was married to another man when they tied the knot in 2002 ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Jin Mosley just filed a lawsuit against Shane -- claiming he knew damn well her divorce from her previous husband Sanjay Dwivedi was granted in September 2002 ... two months before she married Shane.

Of course, this all became an issue when Shane began trashing Jin in public earlier this year -- telling multiple media outlets, including TMZ, that his marriage to Jin was bogus from the start because she was already hitched

Jin admits there's a weird wrinkle to all of this -- because Sanjay got a second divorce judgment in 2006 for unknown reasons ... which may have confused Shane. 

Still, Jin says Shane should have known the 2006 judgment was irrelevant because he saw official documentation which showed the divorce was granted by a judge in 2002.  

Jin says Shane has destroyed her reputation -- and now she wants damages ... as in lots of money.

Big Sean was with his mom in his hometown of Detroit, where his Sean Anderson Foundation gave out more than $2k worth of turkeys. And since you can't have Thanksgiving without football ... he also donated $5k to a youth football league. 

Chris Brown did some charity work in Queens ... and over in NJ, Fetty Wap and RGF Productions dropped $6k to donate some grub. 

No word if Fetty was actually in the kitchen cooking pies with his baby.

We're told he took a trip to Orange County where he ended up at Cook's Corner ... a low-key biker bar. Our sources say Justin stayed for a few hours with one of his friends to eat cheeseburgers and play video games.

We're told he had a great time hanging with the locals who welcomed him with open arms. One of the bikers even invited Justin to take a spin, but he took a raincheck.

Probably smart.

Viacom Chairman Sumner Redstone Legal Docs Claim Mental Incompetence ... But Healthy Sexual Appetite

11/25/2015 9:24 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

124_sumner-redstone_TMZViacom Chairman and CEO Sumner Redstone is in the middle of a legal war, with his ex-lover/caregiver fighting in court to regain control over decisions that will keep him alive ... and her arguments involve sex.

Manuela Herzer claims in legal docs she was once romantic and for a long time a close friend and confidant with the 92-year-old Redstone -- who also started Midway Games which produced Mortal Kombat -- and in September of this year he chose her to make medical decisions on his behalf.   

Herzer claims things changed radically just one month later when Redstone's health and mental state really deteriorated. She claims Redstone's people threw her out of his home and she no longer had the power to make medical decisions.

Herzer now claims Redstone was in such bad shape mentally he did not have the capacity to strip her of the power he gave her just a month earlier.

In her docs, Herzer suggests a marker showing Redstone's mental deterioration was when he started ignoring doctors orders. She says he "demands, to the extent he can be understood, to engage in sexual activity every day, even though Dr. Gold has repeatedly recommended that he abstain from daily sexual activity."

The docs also claim Redstone can't write, his signature is almost a straight line, "appearing as if someone moved the paper under his pen," he has "spontaneous crying spells" and can only converse in "brief grunted responses."

An attorney for Redstone tells us, "Ms. Herzer's claim that she filed this lawsuit out of concern for Mr. Redstone is preposterous."  They added, "It proves only that Ms. Herzer will stop at nothing to pursue her personal financial agenda."

A judge has yet to rule. 

Master P I CAN BEAT KOBE ... In 1-On-1

11/25/2015 11:08 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Master P's throwing more shade at Kobe Bryant -- telling TMZ Sports he's old, he should retire ... and he's pretty confident he'd SMASH the Lakers superstar in a game of 1-on-1. 

P was handing out turkeys to families in need in Watts when we asked how he felt about Kobe ... who's been struggling mightily this season.  

"I think that father time caught up with him," P said ... while telling us the Mamba should hang up the sneaks for good. 

And then there's this ... P -- who had 2 preseason stints with NBA teams back in the day -- told us he thinks he could ball Kobe up in a 1-on-1 game ... and he wasn't joking. 

Tensions have been high with these two this year -- especially after P publicly blamed Kobe for not helping Lamar Odom get a new contract with the Lakers ... criticism that Kobe didn't take kindly to. 

So, when's the game? Maybe April ... Lakers probably won't have anything going on around then. 

Charlie Hunnam My Dream Is to Fight Conor McGregor

11/25/2015 8:24 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

It's kind of a death wish ... and Charlie Hunnam knows it ... but the "Sons of Anarchy" star says he's dreamed of the chance to get in the Octagon with UFC superstar Conor McGregor

Hunnam says he's a HUUUGE fan of Conor ... and watched a bunch of McGregor fight videos to help motivate him to get in shape for his new flick, "Knights of the Roundtable."

In fact, Hunnam says the Notorious One had such an impact on him during his training ... "In my mind I thought, 'Maybe I could fight Conor McGregor?!'"

Don't worry ... Hunnam's not crazy ... and says he knows EXACTLY how that fight would go.

Ya gotta watch the clip ... Hunnam predicts how long he thinks he would last in the cage. He may have overestimated.   

Chris Rock Mystery 7-Year-Old Lived with Family on Pleasure Visa

11/25/2015 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1124-chris-rock-gettyThe 7-year-old South African girl who mysteriously began living with Chris Rock and his now estranged wife for years has been in the U.S. with the help of a visitor visa ... TMZ has learned. 

As TMZ reported, a little girl named Ntombi began living with Chris and Malaak in 2008, when she was just 6 months old. There is no evidence the Rock family ever adopted the child, but they treated her like a daughter, making her part of the family and enrolling her in school. 

Our sources say Ntombi entered the country on a B2 "visitor for pleasure" visa. The visa allows the visitor to stay in the U.S. for up to 1 year, after which time the visitor must go back to her country and fill out paperwork before coming back.  

We're told Ntombi and Malaak went back to South Africa every year and reconnected with the girl's biological family, which included a mom, a dad, a brother and a sister. We're told each time, Ntombi and Malaak returned to the U.S. in short order.

Sources connected with Chris say he has no idea if money ever changed hands from his family to Ntombi's parents. We tried reaching Malaak's lawyer, but never got a call back.

Joseph Randle Arrested At Kansas Casino ... 'Assaulted Cop'

11/25/2015 6:39 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


Ex-Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle was arrested outside of a Kansas casino last night ... after he was told to leave and went berserk on cops on the way out ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

We've confirmed ... 23-year-old Randle was arrested at 10:40 PM in front of the Kansas Star Casino in Mulvane, KS. 

Sources at the casino tell us he was initially asked to leave for being too drunk -- but on the way out, spit on the floor and assaulted a security officer. 

He was ultimately taken into custody and transported to a nearby jail on several charges -- including felony criminal threats, misdemeanor assault of a law enforcement officer, interference with a law enforcement officer, battery, disorderly conduct and criminal trespass.

Randle was being held on $25,000 bail, but he's since been released ... as photographed by KSN News in Kansas.

We spoke with Fred Waller -- an enforcement agent with the Kansas Gaming and Racing Commission -- who tells us Randle was belligerent on the casino floor and was asked to leave. 

Waller says Randle initially left ... but then returned to the casino. He was confronted by a KGRC agent ... but instead of obeying the officer, Randle tried to fight him. 

Other agents jumped in and took Randle into custody. He'll most likely be banned from the casino. 

Randle has a history of legal issues -- he's on unsupervised probation in Texas for stealing underwear and cologne from a department store. 

He was cut from the Cowboys earlier this season -- after Jerry Jones said he was concerned about Randle's mental health.
