Stone Temple Pilots' Dean DeLeo Wife Files for Divorce ... Claims He's Violent Alcoholic

6/25/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Dean DeLeo -- guitarist for the rock band, Stone Temple Pilots -- is heading for divorce ... and his wife claims he's an abusive, drunken mess who makes her fear for the lives of her and their daughter.

According to the legal docs ... Jenn DeLeo filed for divorce a couple weeks ago, just days after he made violent threats to her, admitted he was cheating and told her to get out of the house ... and did it in front of their 6-year-old daughter, June.

Jenn claims Dean's scary behavior started in 2012, shortly after they were married and she gave birth to June. She says he started abusing alcohol and drugs, and once took their baby into the ocean "while he was completely inebriated" ... nearly letting her drown.

According to the docs, Jenn says Dean physically assaulted her months later after another drinking binge when she found him in the garage passed out with the car running and the garage door closed. She claims when she woke him he got angry, vomited, then threw her around and almost killed her. She says he's attempted to strangle her several times over the years.

Jenn also accuses Dean of abusing his son from a previous marriage and telling her he could have his ex-wife killed ... which makes her constantly live in fear. Jenn claims Dean's temper is so out of control, she and June always walk on eggshells. And, she says he's threatened suicide if she leaves him ... saying she'll find him hanging like their personal friend, Chester Bennington.

Dean allegedly assaulted Jenn once again before Thanksgiving 2017 when she confronted him about his extramarital affairs. Jenn says she was going to press charges but changed her mind to avoid ruining the holiday ... but now wishes she had.

Interesting note -- Jenn is one of James Toback's sexual misconduct accusers, and says the #MeToo movement finally empowered her to file for divorce. She's seeking custody and child/spousal support, too.

We reached out to Dean ... no word back so far.

Rihanna Not Arrested Rite Aid Frame Job Doesn't Work, Work, Work

6/25/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

No, Rihanna did not get busted for trespassing at Rite Aid ... but one woman pulled out all the stops to try to make it look that way.

According to law enforcement ... the woman was busted last week at the Bev Hills Rite Aid, and didn't have any ID on her. When cops asked her for her name, she said it was Robyn Rihanna Fenty ... which is the singer's government name.

When cops asked her for her birthday, she said it was February 20 ... Rihanna's actual birthday.

The woman made one mistake though -- she said she was born in 1986 ... but Rihanna was born in 1988.

Obviously, cops knew they weren't dealing with the real RiRi, and the woman was cited for misdemeanor trespassing and was released. We're fairly certain Rihanna's life was not affected at all by the ordeal.

Cardi B blinged up her baby registry ... just in time for her baby shower.

Sources close to the rapper -- who's in her final month of pregnancy -- tell us she's asking for a few more big-ticket items for her daughter ... including a battery-powered Bentley Bentayga, so her girl can ride in style like her mom ... eventually.

The mini kids' version of the luxury whip goes for $700 ... which is chump change compared to the $2,799 baller bassinet Cardi's requesting, to be completely covered in gold leaf for an extra $839.

We're told Cardi added a BEABA Babycook Set for making baby food, as well. That's only $200.

Cardi's baby shower went down in Atlanta this weekend, and if you're wondering if she actually got these items on her registry ... our sources say that's a yes.

They'll definitely go well with her shiny metallic nursery theme.

6/24/2018 12:55 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Lawrence Taylor says he's not ready to condemn Jameis Winston for the Uber incident that led to his suspension ... but tells TMZ Sports the QB should've NEVER put himself in that spot.

Winston has been suspended by the NFL for three games after the NFL did an investigation into allegations that he groped an Uber driver back in 2016.

LT had his fair share of off-the-field turmoil during his playing days ... so, when we talked with him out in Georgia he stopped short at condemning Winston, but still had words for the youngster.

"Especially with the problems he's had you'd think he'd make better judgements than that."

FYI -- Winston's problems include a sexual assault allegation, and two shoplifting incidents before this latest situation.

Still ... LT has his own opinions about the accuser's motives, saying, you can't rule out someone that might be looking for quick fame and a quick buck.

"I just hope it's not a situation where someone wants to be in this #MeToo genre."

EXCLUSIVE

U.S. Olympic legend Greg Louganis -- the greatest diver of all time -- says even world-class athletes like him aren't immune from bullies ... telling TMZ Sports he was mocked as a kid for his last name. 

"Loose anus," Louganis says ... "That's what they used to call me."

Of course, Greg went on to become a world-famous 4-time gold medal winner, who many believe is the greatest EVER in his sport. 

"I mean kids do that," Greg said ... "I can't remember some of the other names from kids in my class. I think loose anus was probably the worst one."
