Khloe Kardashian Files for Divorce ... Again

5/26/2016 3:11 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0526-khloe-doc-launch-02Khloe Kardashian has just gone to court a second time to end her marriage to Lamar Odom ... TMZ has learned.

Khloe, with the help of attorney Laura Wasser, filed for divorce Thursday, claiming -- as she did the first time -- irreconcilable differences. Our sources say there is a prenup and the 2 worked out a property settlement the first time around, so now it's just a waiting game. In California, a divorce cannot become final until 6 months after it's filed.

We're told the divorce is amicable ... Khloe and Lamar are on good terms and he was given a heads-up she was filing. In the docs, Khloe does say she wants to legally drop the Odom name and go back to her maiden handle.

TMZ broke the story ... Khloe filed for divorce the first time in December 2013, and the paperwork just sat in the courthouse as she tried to salvage her marriage. When Lamar OD'd at a Nevada brothel last October Khloe dismissed her divorce petition ... just weeks before the divorce was to become final.

She says it was never about getting back with Lamar ... she just didn't want to upset him while he was recovering. But the final straw came in March when Khloe saw pics on TMZ that Lamar was drinking again

Amber Heard BS Johnny Depp's Family Hated Me

5/26/2016 11:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0526-johnny-depp-amber-heard-tmzAmber Heard was not hated by Johnny Depp's mom ... in fact, Amber showed compassion for the woman in her last months ... so claim sources connected to Amber.

The sources say Betty Sue Palmer was in and out of the hospital for months, and on many occasions Amber went to her bedside at the hospital when Johnny wasn't there. The sources say Amber managed the schedules of the nurses Johnny hired. 

Amber sources say Johnny was indeed absent from his mom's life during their marriage, but it wasn't Amber's doing. They say it was Johnny's choice not to see her.

The sources say Amber does not believe any members of Johnny's family hated her. As we reported, multiple sources told us Johnny's mom and siblings detested her ... even before she married Johnny.

Our Amber sources say she actually has pictures of her snuggling with Johnny's son, Jack.

0526_bieber_nicola_dinner_launch_2Justin Bieber's back in the dating game with an on-screen hottie ... or so it seems.

The Biebs and actress Nicola Peltz -- she starred on "Bates Motel" and 'Transformers' -- arrived for a dinner date at Mastro's Steakhouse in Bev Hills Wednesday night. She looked casual in black, while Justin looked parched ... in a severe sunburn.

He's a freak for some sun.

Gwyneth Paltrow, Chris Martin Divorce a Done Deal

5/26/2016 10:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0526-gwyneth-paltrow-chris-martin-TMZ-01Gwyneth Paltrow has just filed legal docs, asking a judge to officially end her marriage to Chris Martin ... but we know the docs aren't what they seem.

Gwyneth has asked the judge to enter a default judgment, because Chris never responded to her divorce petition. On the surface it sounds like Chris isn't playing ball, but we know it's the exact opposite.

As we reported, the former couple's business manager has been working out a property settlement, and Chris never responded to the divorce petition because he and Gwyneth didn't want lots of stories written each time documents were filed.

We're told the property settlement is now complete, and they agreed long ago to joint custody of their kids.

So the judge will enter the default and the property settlement will almost certainly remain confidential.

Mission accomplished.

Ariana Grande Hot Guy from 'Into You' Music Video ... I'm No Big Sean!

5/26/2016 9:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Ariana Grande fans can kill all the buzz her new music video, "Into You," is about Big Sean ... so says the smoking hot guy who played her love interest.

We got former "America's Next Top Model" star Don Benjamin at LAX Wednesday and asked him about all the comparisons fans have been making between Sean and him.

Many believe the video is about their breakup, especially since Ariana started dating her backup dancer, Ricky, after ending things with Sean.

Don has a different theory -- but keep in mind, Don still seems a little hypnotized by making out with Ariana in the video. Not that we blame him. 

Johnny Depp Divorce His Family 'Hated' Amber

5/26/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0525-johnny-depp-amber-heard-tmz-03Johnny Depp and Amber Heard's relationship was extremely bitter due to a full-blown feud between his family and Amber ... and this, we're told, is the backdrop for what is already an acrimonious divorce.

Multiple sources connected to the ex-couple tell us, Johnny's 2 teenage kids, his 2 sisters and his mom "hated" Amber, and openly discussed it.  We're told they talked about how Amber would rail on Johnny and "treat him like crap."

Earlier this year, Johnny moved his mother, Betty Sue Palmer, into the L.A. compound where he and Amber lived ... and the tension was palpable. We're told mom often told friends she thought Amber was using Johnny for his money and fame, and to boost her own career.

We're also told before Betty Sue moved in, she only saw her son once from the time he married Amber, and both Betty Sue and Johnny blame her for keeping them apart so she'd have full control.  

Our sources say Amber had 2 closed door sit-downs with Johnny's mom after she moved in, and after both meetings Betty Sue railed on her daughter-in-law, calling her a "terrible person."

We broke the story ... Amber filed for divorce Monday ... 3 days after Betty Sue died. There was no prenup, and Amber wants spousal support.

EXCLUSIVE

NY Yankees superfan Artie Lange says Alex Rodriguez has been a disaster in the Big Apple -- calling him a stain and a poison ... who's supercharged the downfall of a once proud franchise. 

"I didn't want him from day 1," Lange said ... "What did we get, one extra ring with his legacy?"

"A-Rod is a stain, he's just a poison."

Lange goes even harder -- trashing the current players as money-hungry sellouts who care more about a check than continuing the Yankees legacy.

According to docs, the court is telling Levi to fork over $61,915.20 to Bristol for their 7-year-old son, Tripp.

Bristol and Levi had been locked in a bitter legal war for years, but we're told they've recently hashed things out and agreed to joint custody. The back child support was the last hurdle.

Shots rang out at a T.I. concert Wednesday night ... multiple people were hit and one is dead.

The rapper had not yet taken the stage when the incident went down. Sources backstage tell us an argument erupted just before one of the opening acts took the stage. Someone brandished a gun and people backstage scrambled into the crowd as shots rang out.

Cops say at this point it's unclear how many shooters were involved and they don't have any suspects.

Kim and Kanye Threaten Blabbing Bodyguard with $30 Mil Lawsuit

7:57 AM PT -- A rep for Kim and Kanye tells us the money won't be enough ... they also want a full retraction of everything he said in the interviews.

update_grey_gray_bar

Kim and Kanye have threatened their former blabbermouth bodyguard with a $30 million lawsuit, and he's gotta drop to his knees and apologize.

We've learned Kim and Kanye's lawyer has fired off a letter to Steve Stanulis ... the bodyguard who went to anyone who would listen, claiming he was fired for chatting up Kim on the job and making Kanye jealous. Kim and Kanye have both said it's a complete lie.

Turns out, we're told that Steve signed a confidentiality agreement promising never to breathe a word about Kim, Kanye or the klan. We're told the lawyer's letter is quick to mention a provision which says Steve is automatically on the hook for $10 mil if he opens his mouth ... and they believe he did at least 3 interviews.

It's interesting. We're told Kim and Kanye's lawyer gives Steve an out, if he shuts his trap and issues a public apology to the family. Our sources say the letter does not ask Steve to admit he lied but they demand he stop talking to the press. 

Kim and Kanye think Steve's MO is simple ... it's a cheap, underhanded way to get famous. A rep for the couple tells us, "This sad, parasitic maniac has violated every basic human tenet of decency with his story of lies. The Wests will explore all legal means at their disposal to silence this nonsense." 

BTW ... this isn't the first time Kim and Kanye have gone after someone for violating the confidentiality agreement. TMZ broke the story, YouTube founder Chad Hurley weaseled his way into AT&T Park in SF and videotaped Kanye's marriage proposal. Chad signed a confidentiality agreement and ended up paying them $440,000.

Ashton Kutcher Praised By Fighting Legend Better Ground Fighter Than Conor McGregor

5/26/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

This is no "Punk'd" ... Ashton Kutcher is a LEGIT jiu-jitsu fighter -- and his legendary trainer tells us he truly believes AK could beat up Conor McGregor in a ground fight.  

Kutcher's been training with Brazilian jiu-jitsu master Rigan Machado -- an 8th degree black belt -- who tells TMZ Sports the actor is a natural ... "He is my #1 student."

Not only is Kutcher tough as nails, but Machado says the 38-year-old could be one of the top BJJ fighters in the world if he wanted to go pro. 

So, we had to ask how he'd fare against Conor McGregor -- who also trains in Brazilian jiu-jitsu -- and Machado couldn't have been more clear ... Ashton would beat that ass in a ground fight.
