EXCLUSIVE

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

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.

5/25/2016 8:01 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

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

The rapper was set to perform at Irving Plaza in NYC Wednesday night when the shooting occurred. We're told at least 2 men and 2 women were hit.  A 33-year-old man who was shot in the stomach didn't make it.

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

5/26/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0525_kanye_west_kim_kardashian_tmzupdate_graphic_red_barA 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_barKim 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 tent 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.

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.

'The Wonder Years' Star Busted for DUA ... Ambien

5/26/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0524-jason-robert-hervey-mug-shot-01"The Wonder Years" star Jason Hervey just learned the hard way ... never take Ambien before you get behind the wheel. 

Tennessee law enforcement tells TMZ ... they got a call about a swerving pickup truck and were able to locate it. Cops say Hervey was behind the wheel and totally out of it ... slurring, red-eyed and confused. 

Cops say Hervey miserably failed a field sobriety test. They searched the pickup and found a loaded handgun, but the actor had a permit. Hervey was booked for DUI and carrying a weapon while under the influence. 

The incident went down back in January 2015 but it went unnoticed, until this past weekend when Hervey served 48 hours behind bars for a misdemeanor DUI charge. The weapons charge was dropped.

Jason, who played Wayne Arnold on the show, tells us he has a prescription for Ambien and stupidly took one before hopping in the truck for a quick errand, he had no alcohol in his system ... he's thankful cops got him off the road before anything really bad happened.

EXCLUSIVE

He hasn't even begun the job yet, but Lynn Swann -- the man who will take over the USC Athletic Director job -- is already getting hit with the tough questions. 

Swann tried to artfully sidestep when he was asked if college athletes should get paid -- but we're guessing it won't be the last time he'll have to face the topic.

We also asked questions about the football program, but Swann wanted to make it clear, Clay Helton is still in charge. Sure he is. 

Still, Swann says he's fired up to get started when he takes over for Pat Haden in July.

DeMar DeRozan's days in the six might be numbered ... that's according to his best friend and former teammate, Romeo Miller, who says he knows where DeRozan is headed ... and he strongly suggests it's L.A.

We got Romeo out at The Grove and asked him about DeMar ... who will be one of the most coveted free agents of the NBA off-season. 

Romeo would be the guy to ask ... he and DeRozan have been best friends for years, growing up together and playing college ball at USC.

Check out the clip ... it's been reported DeMar wants to bolt the north for L.A. and Romeo adds to that fire ... hinting STRONGLY that he knows the Lakers are the right spot for his best pal.

BTW ... DeMar & the Raptors have a HUGE playoff game in Cleveland Wednesday night ... enjoy it while you can, Toronto.

EXCLUSIVE

Marcia Clark thinks Robert Shapiro is taking credit for Johnnie Cochran's trial-turning O.J. Simpson glove demo.

We got Marcia leaving Fox Studios in NYC Wednesday and asked about Shapiro's claim on Megyn Kelly's special that he's the one who concocted the scheme for O.J. to try on the glove, after putting it on his own hand.

Marcia says it was Johnnie's idea. She also takes issue with the notion a key piece of evidence was lying around the courtroom for anyone to try on.
