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 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.

Kim and Kanye Threaten Blabbing Bodyguard with $10 Mil Lawsuit

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

0525_kanye_west_kim_kardashian_tmzKim and Kanye have threatened their former blabbermouth bodyguard with a $10 million lawsuit, unless he drops to his knees and apologizes.

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.

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.

Kim and Kanye think Steve's MO is simple ... it's a cheap, underhanded way to get famous. 

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.

Now that's he's on a break ... it looks like Justin and his pals are making up for lost time. Don't get it twisted though ... we're told he's been a great neighbor. Oh, how times have changed.

'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. Hervey was booked for DUI and carrying a weapon while under the influence. 

The incident went down back in January but it went unnoticed, until this past weekend when Hervey served 48 hours behind bars.

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 ... and 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.

5/25/2016 11:06 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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.

Amber's show debuts in a couple weeks, and since she and Wiz have mastered the whole co-parenting thing with Sebastian ... you'd think he might make a guest appearance. Not so -- Wiz told us why he's tapping out on TV.

However, he lit up when we brought up his tour with Snoop Dogg. You gotta see him talk about life on the road for 2 legends of the weed game.

Seriously, you might catch a contact high just watching this.

Eddie Lacy went all Rocky Balboa (from "Rocky IV") in his off-season workout -- training in the snow TWICE A DAY with his P90X trainer Tony Horton

Horton -- who created P90X -- spent months helping the Green Bay Packers running back trim down for the season ... and judging by the last video we shot of Lacy, it worked. Dude's pretty ripped now

Horton says Lacy was a natural when it came to working out -- but there was ONE exercise the guy couldn't stand.

Chris Brown Scores Big Legal Victory in Custody War

5/25/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0524_chris_brown_nia_guzman_tmz-instagramChris Brown annihilated his baby mama in court Tuesday, after a judge pooh-poohed her request to restrict Brown's custody because of alleged drug use and gang affiliation.

Nia Guzman claimed Chris was unfit to care for Royalty without strict supervision. She wanted a monitor and more ... Nia asked the judge to reduce the amount of contact he has with the 1-year-old.

The judge wasn't having it, so the status quo remains. We're told Chris and Nia will continue to have joint legal and physical custody. Under the existing custody order, Chris gets 12 days a month with his daughter and it will continue to be unmonitored.

Nia's also gunning for more child support, although that wasn't on the table. She's getting $2,500 a month but wants it upped to nearly $16k a month.
