Giada De Laurentiis

Officially Divorced

... And it Was Expensive

9/3/2015 3:53 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0903-giada-todd-tmz-01

Giada De Laurentiis is officially divorced from hubby Todd Thompson, but not without cost.

TMZ has obtained a copy of the final divorce judgment, which orders Giada to pay Todd $9k a month in child support. Todd gets their $3.2 million house in Pacific Palisades and $300,000 in art and furnishings. He also gets to keep his membership in the swanky Bel-Air Bay Club which overlooks the Pacific.

Giada gets all rights to an untitled Italian cookbook and her production company, Linguine Pictures. She also gets all rights to GDL Foods, Inc. In other words, she gets to keep her brand. 

And get this ... because there was no prenup, Giada must give Todd 50% of the unpaid advances to various cookbooks that are in the works, including a $2.5 million balance for Giada at Home/Weeknights with Giada, $2.3 million for Giada Feel Good Food, and $757,000 for Everyday Pasta/Giada's Kitchen. 

They're dividing up various bank accounts, with a total balance north of $2 million.

And of course, he gets to keep his Porsche and she gets to keep hers.

No one's getting spousal support, because they're both rich. His estimated worth is $15 million ... hers is $20 million.  

They'll share joint custody of their 7-year-old daughter, Jade Marie.

NFL's Chad Henne

Hey Jimmy Garoppolo ...

Keep Your Head Up!

9/3/2015 2:28 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Backup QBs always stick together -- just ask Chad Henne who says Jimmy Garoppolo shouldn't be bitter now that he's lost the starting job ... saying, "It's the way the business goes."

Of course, Jimmy G was all set to cover for Tom Brady as the starting QB for the New England Patriots for the first 4 games of the season ... but that was BEFORE Tom's suspension was overturned.

But Henne -- who's the #2 QB in Jacksonville at the moment -- says Jimmy needs to stay positive ... and more importantly, stay ready. 

Check out the clip -- we also ask if he thinks Tom should send Jimmy a fruit basket or something ... pretty funny. 

'Love & Hip Hop: New York' Star Tahiry Jose

I'm Suing Mr Fiasco for Beating Me Up

9/3/2015 1:48 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0903_Tahiry-Jose_TMZ"Love & Hip Hop: New York" star Tahiry Jose says her life has been derailed after being brutally attacked by a male model ... and now a jury will decide what's what. 

Tahiry is suing Carlos Fiasco, whom she says beat her to a pulp and dragged her by her hair backstage at a New York Fashion Week modeling show.  

Fashion show production people tell us, Fiasco became irritated at Tahiry because she was acting "too Hollywood." 

Tahiry -- who dates Joe Budden -- says the attack was so bad she can't work, but it's unclear what work she lost. It seems she's talking about doing club appearances because she continues to be on the show.

I Don't Do Brown!

EXCLUSIVE

0903_kris_jenner_birkin_bag_instagram2The Kardashian Klan is usually into brown, but not when it comes to purses, apparently ... because Kris Jenner is selling her crazy expensive Hermes Birkin bag ... on eBay. 

Jenner gave the bag to a company to handle the sale, but included a note with it which reads, "I know you'll find a good home for my baby!" Jenner's stationary appears to have a cougar on it ... too funny.

The bag was only carried six times and as for why she's selling, Jenner writes, "I am sure a lot of girls will understand me when I say, 'It just isn’t my color.'"

If it is your color ... and you have $18,950 ... KJ's old bag could be yours!

UFC's Nick Diaz

... For DUI Jail Sentence

9/3/2015 10:51 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0903-nick-diaz-mug-shot-TMZ-SPORTS_01UFC superstar Nick Diaz did NOT look happy in his mug shot -- taken moments ago -- but shoulda been smilin' ... 'cause he'll be free in no time thanks to a GREAT deal in his two DUI cases.

As we previously reported, Diaz was busted for DUI in 2013 and 2014 -- but cut a deal with prosecutors for both cases -- and he was only sentenced to a grand total of TWO days in jail

And get this ... he already got credit for one day for the time he served when he was initially arrested. 

Diaz turned himself into the San Joaquin County Jail at 10:11 AM PT -- and he'll definitely be out in a matter of minutes.  

Not bad. 

In addition to the jail time, Diaz also got 3 years of informal probation and must complete a DUI educational course.

EXCLUSIVE

Stevie Wonder just called to say ... I'm not giving you any gifts for your birthday so deal with it -- but I love you.

Stevie was out with his sons Kailand and Mandla at Mr. Chow ... for Kailand's 14th birthday -- and you gotta figure a super famous and successful dad like Stevie gives awesome gifts, right?

Our photog raised the issue, and got a surprising -- and maybe admirable -- response. 

Let's just say ... signed, sealed, delivered? Not always.

Paris Hilton

Thanks for My Ring ...

I Got Something for Ya, Fireman!

9/3/2015 9:24 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0903-paris-hilton-getty-01Paris Hilton came thiiis close to losing $350,000 -- so, yeah ... she's about to give the Polish firefighter who found her diamond ring the serious hook up.

Paris tells us she was panicked when she realized the ring was missing -- and says she accidentally left the massive diamond-encrusted piece in the vehicle that took her across the tarmac to her private jet.

How do you misplace a $350k piece of jewelry? P says she was exhausted because she'd performed in Ibiza the night before, then hopped a flight to Poland and worked all day ... before jetting back to Ibiza.

Bottom line ... she's extremely grateful to get it back, and says she's in the process of getting the firefighter's contact info so she can give him a reward, and send some gifts for his family. 

She wasn't specific about how big the reward will be but, y'know Paris. She does everything big.

Master P

You Can Have All the Money ...

But Lose the Boyfriend

9/3/2015 6:22 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Master P says his estranged wife can have all his money if certain conditions are met:

1.  Go to rehab

2.  Take care of our kids

3.  Dump your boyfriend

We got Ice Cream Man in Calabasas, and he was angry Sonya Miller has put him on blast, claiming he got the guard at the front gate to keep her out of the house. He says his only beef is that she's letting her boyfriend stay there.  

Master P has big beef with the boyfriend and delivers a very clear threat if he ever sees him in the crib.

And he says, Sonya's claim that she helped build his company into a $180,000,000 empire is ridiculous ... she's no Cookie, according to him.

NBA's Ty Lawson

Hits the L.A. Club Scene

... Responsibly

9/3/2015 6:16 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Just weeks after leaving rehab, NBA star Ty Lawson has returned to the Hollywood club scene ... only smarter ... this time, leaving as a PASSENGER in a waiting ride, TMZ Sports has learned.

The Houston Rockets star -- who was arrested for DUI back in July and in January -- was leaving Warwick on Sunset Blvd. around 1:40 AM ... but appeared completely sober.

It's not illegal for Lawson to be around booze -- he's just not allowed to drink it -- which is why the judge in his Denver DUI case ordered him to be on monitored sobriety and install a monitoring device in his home. 

So, while it might not be the BEST move to hit the clubs while in the middle of TWO DUI cases -- at least he was responsible about it. 

Cecil The Lion

Apple Rejects App

Targeting Hunters as Kill

9/3/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0902-main-cecil-revenge-cecilrevenge-01Apple will not allow its users to turn guns on hunters, turning them into human prey.

A new app called "Cecil's Revenge" turns the tables making lions, giraffes, elephants and other wildlife the hunters, aiming their weapons at poachers.

The game is loosely based on the game "Asteroids," but Cecil and his buddies are now the shuttle and hunters and poachers are the asteroids.

The creators of the app tell TMZ ... in its rejection, Apple cited its rule that enemies in games cannot target a specific race, culture, real government or any other real enemy. Apple believes hunters and poachers are part of a specific culture. 

0902-sub-cecil-revenge-cecilrevenge-01An Apple rep tells TMZ the app was 86'd because the company will not sanction games based on "real events." 

"Cecil's Revenge" does have a home ... Google has approved the app, which is now available free of charge.

According to court docs we've obtained ... Phoenix Sundown was arrested back in 2007 for assaulting his 18-year-old girlfriend. He was 29 at the time. Sundown got 3 years in a state pen, but was eventually diagnosed with a mental disorder and transferred to a prison hospital.

During counseling there ... doctors discovered Sundown had several photos of women with red pen and wax markings on their breasts and crotches. One collage showed a Lindsay Lohan pic with trails of red dripping on her body, and Sundown holding a long knife over her.

He also copped to writing to Spin magazine about his sexual fantasies with several other female celebs, but said he never contacted them directly.

As TMZ first reported ... Sundown was arrested Tuesday for sending pornographic images to a "Dance Moms" student. He remains behind bars on $25,000 bail.
