J Lo/Casper Breakup And You Thought UFC 202 Was a Big Fight ...

8/25/2016 12:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0824_jennifer_lopez_casper-smart-tmzJennifer Lopez broke up with Casper Smart because he snubbed her by passing on a fancy Hamptons charity event in favor of hanging with his boyz at UFC 202 ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected with the former couple tell us ... J Lo told Casper it was super important for him to accompany her to Ron Perelman's Hamptons fundraiser Saturday night benefiting the Apollo Theater. 

Casper wasn't having it, because he desperately wanted to watch the Conor McGregor/Nate Diaz fight in Vegas with his friends.

0824_Casper_smart_bruce_buffer_kanye_tweetCasper had a great time in Vegas, hanging with Kanye and UFC announcer Bruce Buffer.

J Lo, we're told, was enraged and ended the relationship ... no discussion -- simply, we're done.

Here's the funny thing ... Casper was telling people at the fight he was going to NYC Sunday to meet up with Jennifer, who was there filming a show. He had no idea being a no-show Saturday would end things.

0824_jennifer_lopez_saturady_getty_subOur sources add this ... J Lo and Casper have "broken up" several times before and gotten back together, and they say they would not be surprised at all if it happens again.

Johnny Depp I'll Honor Amber's Charity Pledge and Send the Checks

8/25/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0824_johnny_depp_amber_heard_tmzJohnny Depp is heaping praise on Amber Heard for donating her $7 million divorce settlement to charity ... and he's so moved he's sending the checks directly to the 2 organizations she personally picked.

Amber announced after striking her settlement she would donate every penny to the ACLU and Children's Hospital of Los Angeles -- $3.5 mil each. We checked with Children's Hospital Tuesday and they had not yet received any of the money.

We've learned both the ACLU and Children's Hospital got checks Wednesday from Johnny, on behalf of Amber. The checks are the first in a number of installments that will eventually total $7 million.

A rep for Johnny tells TMZ, "Following Amber Heard's announcement that her divorce settlement was to be divided equally and gifted to Children's Hospital of Los Angeles and the American Civil Liberties Union, two exceptionally deserving and important charities, Johnny Depp has sent the first of multiple installments of those monies to each charity in the name of Amber Heard, which when completed will honor the full amount of Ms. Heard's pledge."

The rep adds, "Ms. Heard's generosity in giving to these wonderful causes is deeply respected."

Everybody happy now?

Frances Bean Cobain Hubby Wants FAT Allowance You Left Me Broke!

8/25/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0824_frances_cobain_Isaiah-Silva_gettyFrances Bean Cobain's estranged husband says he won't have a penny to his name without her ... so he's asking a judge to make her pay up.

Isaiah Silva is requesting spousal support, and according to the docs he wants a ton of it -- nothing less than $25k a month.

Isaiah says he left a steady job when they got married and Frances promised to cover a bunch of his monthly expenses, including paying private school and housing bills for his child from a previous relationship.

Now, he says Frances wants to renege on those commitments. Isaiah claims Frances has upwards of $100 mil in her dad's estate, and says he deserves half of the money she earned off business deals made during the 2 year marriage. He says there's no prenup.

Frances made it clear in her divorce docs ... the Kurt Cobain money is hers alone and not Isaiah's -- but she is open to paying some spousal support.

Jadakiss Drops Big Bucks for Little Stripper

8/25/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

It's not the size of the stripper, it's the motion of her ass while werkin' it for Jadakiss that counts ... if you're a tiny stripper in a West Virginia club.

It all went down after Jadakiss' recent appearance at Lust Gentlemen's Club. We're told the little lady -- she goes by Ivy -- surprised the rapper in the VIP room after his 30 minute set.

You gotta see her moves, and especially Jadakiss' reaction to 'em.

We're told he made it rain $300 for the private dance. Money well spent.

Thomas Gibson Looking for Cars in Audi Wrong Places

8/25/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0824-thomas-gibson-getty-01Thomas Gibson says he's just one of many Americans who got screwed by Volkswagen's massive recall last year, and now he wants to settle the score in court.

In a new lawsuit obtained by TMZ ... Thomas claims an L.A. dealership, and VW by association, lied to his face when they told him his 2012 Audi Q7 offered him horsepower, fuel efficiency AND clean diesel.

He says those claims were BS, noting the feds found VW -- Audi's parent co. -- passed government emissions tests under false pretenses ... which lead to its recall of roughly 11 million cars worldwide.

Thomas -- who's freshly unemployed -- says he's opted out of the class action suit against VW. He's going all lone wolf, presumably because he thinks it'll net him more dough out of zee Germans.

Slash Cuts Bev Hills Pad by $1.5 Mil

8/24/2016 2:14 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

slash_home_photos_launch3Slash is hoping a fresh coat of paint and a substantially lower asking price will finally attract a buyer for his Beverly Hills mansion. 

The GNR guitarist just relisted his Mulholland Estates home for $9.5 million ... about $1.5 million off the original listing for the 7 bedroom, 9 bath home. Slash put it on the market more than a year ago, after he and his wife of 13 years, Perla, filed for divorce.

The 11k sq. foot home has been stripped of most of its rock 'n' roll qualities, but a stripper pole remains ... key selling point, no doubt. Looks like the backyard skate ramp's also been replaced by a beach volleyball court.

Slash and Perla bought the mansion in 2009 for $7.3 million.

Kim Richards Dodges Jail Bullet

8/24/2016 1:42 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0824-kim-richards-tmz-02Kim Richards narrowly avoided jail after blowing off her community service and AA meetings in her shoplifting case.

Kim's lawyers were in court Wednesday for a probation violation hearing ... this after she missed the deadline for completing 30 days of community service and 52 AA sessions.  

Her lawyers presented proof that Kim belatedly did most of her community service and is now up to date on AA meetings, so the judge cut her a break.

Kim stays on probation and everything must be completed by the next hearing in November.

Kim was convicted of shoplifting for stealing $600 worth of stuff from Target.

EXCLUSIVE

0824-nick-diaz-tmz-01Nick Diaz ended up in the middle of a huge brawl while partying at Hyde nightclub in Vegas early Wednesday morning ... TMZ Sports has learned.

A rep for the club tells us the UFC fighter went to a bathroom outside the club around 2:30 AM, and accidentally stumbled into another customer ... who started talking smack.

We're told Nick apologized and said he didn't want any trouble, but 3 other men then joined the first guy and jumped Nick ... who tells us, "I didn't start it. They didn't know who I was."

He tried to defend himself, and got hit hard in the head -- and then the fight spilled out of the bathroom, and out onto the Bellagio's casino floor.

The melee was insane -- the club's rep says the attackers were swinging chairs and brawling with club and casino staffers. They were eventually removed by security.

Nick told the Bellagio he didn't want to press charges, and told us, "They got the worst of it."

EXCLUSIVE

0824_blac_chyna_kylie_jenner_tmzBlac Chyna and Kylie Jenner have buried the hatchet and there's no animosity over Kylie playing stepmom to Chyna and Tyga's son King ... so claims Rob's fiancee.

Sources close to Blac Chyna tell us she actually enjoyed the pics of Kylie and King at a mini-golf course.

We're told Chyna's good with the entire Kardashian brood ... a brand she's personally growing -- she's weeks away from giving birth.

She's also not stupid and knows Kylie will become her sister-in-law and if she starts picking fights with her, Kris will side with her daughter, which will cause Chyna financial and other problems.

The Kardashians are also on board ... they've invited Chyna to family events ... most recently the latest DASH store opening and Kris' mom's birthday.

Chyna knows which battles not to pick.
