1019-vanilla-ice-laura-giaritta-tmz-getty-01Vanilla Ice's marriage is officially ice, ice baby -- his wife just filed for divorce after nearly 20 years together ... TMZ has learned.

Laura Van Winkle filed the docs Tuesday in Florida. They have 16 and 18-year-old daughters. Sources close to Ice tell us he and Laura have actually been separated for a few years now, and she's just making the split official.

The couple toughed it out after he was twice arrested for domestic battery ... in 2008 and 2001. 

Unclear if Ice was blindsided by Laura's filing, but he seemed pretty chipper a few weeks ago when we got a Delta employee serenading him

10/19/2016 2:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1019-andre-dawson-GETTY-01Former Major League MVP Andre Dawson ain't worried about the Chicago Cubs trailing 2-1 to the Dodgers in the NLCS ... telling TMZ Sports, "this is a team that knows how to respond."

Dawson -- an 8 time All Star during his 21 seasons in the majors -- says he's still confident the Cubbies can win it all this year.

"This team can still most definitely win the World Series this year," The Hawk says.

"They have outstanding starting pitching, their bullpen is top grade and they have great hitting. They can play with anyone offensively, and their bench depth is where it needs to be."

"When you’re down 2-1, you’re not worried. But you’re obviously concerned. Tonight is a must-win game for the Cubs."

"They’ve shown it all year that they can get back on top."

Angelina Jolie and Kids Interviewed by FBI

10/19/2016 12:21 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1019_angelina_jolie_fbi_tmz-2Angelina Jolie and her kids were interviewed Tuesday by 2 FBI agents ... primarily to determine where exactly the incident between Brad Pitt and 15-year-old son Maddox went down.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... 2 FBI agents paid Angelina a visit at her Malibu home and spent more than 3 hours there. Well-placed sources tell us there is not an official investigation ... the agency is in a "fact-finding" stage to determine if there's evidence to warrant an investigation.

We're told the agents wanted Angelina and the kids to walk through the incident step-by-step, but they spent a lot of time trying to pin down the location of the airplane at the time it happened.

We're told it matters if the plane was not in U.S. airspace when the argument went down. The FBI also asked numerous questions about what happened on the ground when the plane refueled in Minnesota. There's some question as to whether Minnesota officials might have jurisdiction.

Sources tell us Angelina was cooperative but her endgame is for the whole thing to just go away.

As we reported, it's highly unlikely the FBI will press the case.


Mario Andretti I Dined with Obama ... But I'm Voting for Trump!

10/19/2016 12:19 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Racing legend Mario Andretti says he's still a full pedal to the metal Donald Trump supporter -- even though he had dinner with President Obama at the White House Tuesday night.

Andretti appeared on "TMZ Live" and spilled his guts about the State Dinner to honor Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi ... a dinner that included huge stars like Jerry Seinfeld and Chance the Rapper.

So, we had to ask if the Obama event swayed his vote one way or the other -- and he made it very clear he's Team Trump all the way.

He did appear on "Celebrity Apprentice" after all ...

Exclusive Video

Donald Trump got a taste of his proposed US-Mexico border wall Wednesday morning when food trucks lined up outside his Las Vegas hotel ... but it wasn't just tacos being served.

The trucks built a wall outside Trump International Hotel just off the strip and offered free grub to hundreds of protesters. 

There was quite a selection, including several different Asian fusion trucks and even a showing from the French via the French Food Therapy truck. 

The Culinary Union Local 226, an LV food union, organized and got permits. For those that weren't hungry, there was another mini wall to sign.

For the most part, it looked peaceful ... Jesse Jackson even made an appearance and let us know his protest grub of choice. 


Holly Robinson Peete Dodgers Manager Hired My Autistic Son ... 'He's the Best'

10/19/2016 11:38 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Holly Robinson Peete says her autistic son, RJ, currently works in the L.A. Dodgers clubhouse ... and it's all thanks to manager Dave Roberts

"My son has autism," Holly said ... and when Roberts first met RJ, he "treated him just like an amazing kid. Gave him a great job."

RJ is 19 years old -- but when he was a little boy, doctors told Holly he would never talk, have friends, go to school or get a job. 

He's done ALL of those things -- thanks to support from incredible people like Dave Roberts. 

"He's just the best," Holly said ... "I'm glad he's our manager."


Shailene Woodley Pleads Not Guilty In Pipeline Riot

10/19/2016 11:11 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1019-shailene-woodley-tmz-01Shailene Woodley pleaded not guilty to rioting at the Dakota Access Pipeline, and the rush is on to cover every second of the case. 

Shailene wasn't in the North Dakota court Wednesday morning, but her attorney entered the plea. She's charged with one count of misdemeanor criminal trespass and one count of misdemeanor engaging in a riot. As soon as local media caught wind of her plea, they filed docs asking for video cameras to be allowed in court.

The judge approved, so if her case goes to trial she'll have another platform to state her protest against the pipeline. 

But since she's facing 2 misdemeanors ... we smell a plea deal.


Jackie Christie I'd Gladly Help My Daughter with Medical Bills ... If She Asks

10/19/2016 11:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1019-takari-lee-christie-jackie-christie-TMZ-FACEBOOK-01'Basketball Wives' star Jackie Christie says she did NOT refuse to pay for her granddaughter's medical bills after the child was badly burned in a daycare accident ... and says she's more than willing to help. 

Jackie's been taking heat ever since her estranged daughter, Takari, set up a GoFundMe page last month to raise $3,000 to help pay for treatment for her 8-month-old daughter. 

Takari said she was suffering serious financial hardships and was having a hard time finding the money to get her kid the proper help. 

Matt Barnes and Evelyn Lozada reportedly kicked in more than $3,000 each -- but people are mad at Jackie, claiming she should have paid for everything in the first place. 

But Jackie tells TMZ Sports ... Takari has cut HER off and never reached out for help in the first place. Had she called, Jackie says she would have been more than willing to fork over a check. 

Jackie also says she's given Takari a ton of money over the years and she should be more than able to cover a $3,000 bill. She feels Takari went public with the money plea to try to embarrass Jackie. 

Long story short ... Jackie says if Takari truly needs help, pick up the phone and call your mother. 

'Bad Girls Club' Star I Never Tried to Shake Down NFL Star ... Over Love Child

10/19/2016 10:42 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1019_donald-penn_dominique_penn_camilla-poindexter_tmz_instagram"Bad Girls Club" star Camilla Poindexter is PISSED at Donald Penn's wife -- claiming the accusation she tried to get "hush money" from the NFL star to stay quiet about their love child is a downright LIE. 

As we previously reported, Penn's wife, Dominique, blasted Poindexter on social media -- calling the reality star a "hood rat" and a "ho" for hooking up with the married Oakland Raiders lineman last year and giving birth to a baby that everyone believes is his.

In her online rant, Dominique said she vows to block Camilla from getting any of Penn's money because, "I'm not letting ANYONE take the money that I've earned because she thinks hush money is going to help her life!"

We spoke with sources close to Camilla who tell us Poindexter is adamant she NEVER tried to shake down Penn and there was no request for "hush money."

We're told Donald offered to kick in financially on his own -- which Camilla gladly accepted -- but she claims money has never been an issue. 

Our Camilla sources say she's lawyered up and is considering taking legal action against Dominique for defamation -- but so far, she has yet to file any paperwork. 

A rep for Dominique says, "We believe this to be meritless and have no further comment."
