Idina Menzel And Taye Diggs

We're So Rich ...

Divorce is Easy

2/23/2015 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Taye Diggs Idina Menzel Divorce
Idina Menzel and Taye Diggs have made it clear in their divorce settlement ... they're both so loaded they can live nicely on their own without bleeding the other dry. 

The settlement makes it clear ... each has accrued earnings and earning capacity that makes spousal support irrelevant. You don't see that much in divorces.  

Their parting of the ways seems completely amicable ... they agreed to share custody of their 5-year-old son, Walker.

Not amicable enough for you? They're also splitting all parenting costs right down the middle, so no child support either.

As previously reported, the couple has lived apart since 2013 but recently decided to pull the plug and end their 10 year marriage.

Kinda makes you want to get a divorce ... kinda.

Jay Z & Beyonce

Can't Find a House, So ...

We're L.A. Renters Now

2/23/2015 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Jay Z Beyonce LA HomeBeyonce and Jay Z can't always get what they want -- they've been unable to find the perfect L.A. home to buy ... so, instead they haggled their way into a rental for $150K a month ... and yes, that's a deal.

They're familiar with the crib in ritzy Holmby Hills -- it's the same one they rented last summer on a short term lease ... but our real estate sources tell us they just locked it down for a full year.

We're told the power couple's been itching to move out of the Bev Hills area hotel where they've been living while house hunting -- so they decided to go back to their old digs. 

16,000 sq. ft., 7 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms and an infinity pool with a waterfall ... is one helluva plan B. 

You'll recall, Bey and Jay paid $200K/month for the pad last year -- but we're told they dealt directly with the owner this time and knocked off $50K/mo. ... based on signing a longer lease. 

Even the Carters love a discount. 

Bobby Brown

BUT ONLY IF ....

update_graphic_red_bar

9:15 AM PST -- Gordon's attorney says his client his legal team advised Nick to reject Bobby Brown's conditions in order to visit Bobbi Kristina.  He says Nick has repeatedly offered to meet with Bobby in private to clear the air, rather than go through lawyers, but the singer turned Gordon down.

update_grey_gray_bar

Bobby Brown is calling BS on Nick Gordon for suggesting the family won't let him see Bobbi Kristina ... but when you read between the lines it sounds like there's a string attached that Nick won't touch.

Brown lawyer says, "To address the continued and never ending media requests for comment about Mr. Gordon's requests to visit Bobbi Kristina, let me be very clear, Mr. Gordon was offered an opportunity to potentially visit Bobbi Kristina and he declined to meet the terms of any possible visit."

The lawyer won't say what "term" Gordon must meet, but it's pretty apparent.  TMZ broke the story there's a criminal investigation because Bobbi Kristina had visible injuries when she was rushed to the hospital, and Nick is the target of the investigation.  Seems obvious ... Brown wants Nick to talk to cops.

The lawyer certainly hinted he wants Nick to sit down with police, saying, "We are only concerned with individuals that can help Bobbi Kristina and bring resolution to the investigation."

As far as we know Nick has not been interviewed by police and the investigation is ongoing.

Nick made a public plea Saturday night to allow him in the hospital, claiming he's the one who can bring his girlfriend back to life, but Brown's lawyer scoffs, saying, "Obviously Mr. Gordon is not as desperate to visit Bobbi Kristina as he wants the world to believe."

Keeping Up With The Kardashians Bruce Jenner Absent

The Kardashians are driving a wedge between themselves and Bruce Jenner, and we've learned the upcoming season of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" is a virtual farewell to the patriarch.

Sources connected with the production tell TMZ ... there's a scene in the show where the girls discuss how Bruce is such an infrequent visitor, "Bruce and the boys are almost completely out of the picture."

One of the girls says, "Maybe it's time to admit to themselves that they're barely even enough of a family anymore to go on vacation [with us]."

At one point Kim says, "Things are only going to get more difficult and complicated," referring to Bruce's sex change.

And during the episode, Scott Disick rails on Bruce, saying when they were dune buggying in Pismo Beach, Bruce "got on his high horse on how to be the world's best dad." Scott says he got really annoyed and said to Kourtney, "I wonder what Brody would have to say about that" -- obviously referring to the fact that Bruce was largely absent while Brody grew up.

I Can Save Bobbi Kristina

But I Need to See Her

0221-nick-gordon-getty-01

Nick Gordon is making a public plea to let him in Bobbi Kristina's hospital room, because he believes his presence could save her life.

Nick just tweeted, "Let me in the hospital to see my girl and let her hear my voice  SHE WILL WAKE UP!!!"

Nick is going public because he's getting nowhere with the Brown and Houston family.   He has been barred from the hospital and several members of the Brown family have threatened physical harm if he shows his face.

TMZ broke the story ... there's a criminal investigation because of injuries on Bobbi Kristina's body when paramedics removed her from her home after she was found submerged in the bathtub.  Nick is the target of that investigation.

Bobbi Kristina is hanging on, but as we reported doctors have already advised pulling life support would be a medically sound decision. Bobby Brown has resisted, believing prayer can work miracles.

Rick Salomon's Dog Is Fine!

But His Daughter Calls Cops

Pam Anderson claims the ruckus over the allegedly "missing" dog Bumblebee is all for nothing ... but Rick Salomon's family is crying foul -- and Rick's daughter got into a standoff at Pam's house.  

After a rough day that included her husband filing for annulment, Anderson went out in Bev Hills ... and told our photog the family pooch was fine, and simply at the groomer. She laughed off the idea she was holding the pup hostage. 

But sources close to Salomon tell TMZ the family went to the groomer Thursday ... and came up with no pooch. Rick's fam claims Pam is lying about Bumblebee's whereabouts. 

Meanwhile, Rick's daughter Tyson had her own issues. Law enforcement sources tell us L.A. County Sheriff's deputies had to go out to Pam's house Thursday night when Pam refused to let Tyson in to grab some of her stuff. We're told Pam never caved ... turning Tyson and deputies away. 

Bottom line ... looks like Rick and her girls will have to sue to get anything out of the house.

Bumblebee
the dog is MIA from Pamela Anderson's Malibu compound, and her estranged husband thinks it's all out of revenge because he filed to annul their marriage.

Sources close to the couple tell TMZ ... Pamela saw our post Thursday morning that Rick Salomon has filed for annulment in Las Vegas, claiming she defrauded him into marriage.  

We're told after Pam saw the story, Rick's daughter Tyson -- who was living at the home --  had just walked in the door and Pam ordered her to get out. As Tyson got ready to leave, she asked where her dog Bumblebee was, because the pooch was nowhere to be found.

We're told Pam told Tyson she had the dog taken to a boarding facility, but the place says they never had the dog. 

Short story ... Bumblebee's whereabouts are a mystery.

Bobby Brown's Wife

Praying for Bobbi Kristina

Beef with Nick Gordon

2/19/2015 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Bobby Brown's wife left Bobbi Kristina and her husband in Atlanta and flew to L.A., where she made 2 things clear ... they still have hope, and they want nothing to do with Nick Gordon.

Alicia Etheredge landed in L.A. Wednesday and told our photog their hope for Bobbi Kristina's survival is prayer. We asked about the doctors advising Bobby to make a decision on withdrawing life support, but her focus is God.

Alicia -- who is pregnant -- bristled when Nick Gordon's name came up. As we reported, Nick is now going public, trying to put pressure on the Brown family, to let him see Bobbi Kristina, but Alicia's reaction makes it clear ... he's persona non grata.

Aunt Jemima 'Heirs'

Cutoff From Pancake Billions

You Need Batter Proof

EXCLUSIVE

0809-aunt-jemima-02

Two guys claiming to be heirs to the real life Aunt Jemima couldn't pour it on thick enough to convince a judge -- their shot at $3 billion just got tossed out of court.  

According to docs obtained by TMZ ... D.W. Hunter and Larnell Evans, Jr. went to court armed with a pretty thin story to prove they're the great-grandsons of Anna Short Harrington -- who portrayed Aunt J. from 1935 until the '50s.

As TMZ first reported ... the men sued PepsiCo, Quaker Oats, and 2 other companies for royalties they feel Harrington had been screwed out of while her image was being used to hawk flapjacks.

Once they got to court ... Hunter told the judge his grandmother once gave him a photo of Harrington -- a photo he no longer has -- and claimed that proved his relation. Hunter and Evans also said they tried to locate Harrington's grave in Syracuse, NY. 

Not shockingly, the judge said that so-called evidence fell flatter than a ... well, you know.

Case dismissed.

Bobbi Kristina's boyfriend Nick Gordon has been groveling to see her with no luck, and now he's publicly pleading for a visit. 

Gordon's lawyer, Randall Kessler, says Nick's efforts to see Bobbi Kristina have been consistently blocked by the family. Kessler adds, "[Nick] has respected the family's wishes and for that reason alone has not returned to the hospital and risked a public confrontation."

As we reported, Bobby Brown's relatives have threatened to lay "hands on him" if Nick ever shows up.

TMZ broke the story, police have launched a criminal investigation because Bobbi Kristina was found with injuries on her body and Nick is the target of the probe.

Kessler adds, "He desperately wants to be with the one he loves and continues to hope that his request will be granted."

As we previously reported, we're told some of Bobbi Krisitna's organs are beginning to shut down and it is only a matter of time.

Honey Boo Boo

Here She Comes Again ...

But There's a Speed Bump

2/18/2015 2:39 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Honey Boo Boo Show Return
Honey Boo Boo is far from done ... the fam is back in L.A. meeting with producers this week ... but convicted sex-offender Mark McDaniel could derail everything.

Sources say several networks believe the world has been Boo-deprived for too long ... TLC cancelled the show back in October. The idea being shopped is a "Beverly Hillbillies" theme with a new house, money, and drivers while they adjust to being famous around town.

But here's the problem ... we're told producers want to drudge up Chickadee's molestation business with McDaniel and use it to inaugurate the series, but the family says they're dealing with it privately in therapy and want to move on.

But people love it when couples reunite ... por ejemplo Mama June and Sugar Bear ... we're told producers are pushing to see them fix things and co-parent for the show.

Decisions ... decisions.

Rear-Ended

Driver Flees

EXCLUSIVE

Mama June was rear-ended by a hit and run driver Monday ... and her brood is badly shaken.

June tells us, she and the girls were leaving a gas station close to their new home in Hampton, GA when a minivan rear-ended their Suburban. She called 911 but the other driver sped off before she could write down the plate number. 

No one was hurt but it scared everyone, especially Pumpkin ... who was badly injured last year in a another family car wreck.

The damage was minimal, so good luck finding the hit and run driver. Nevertheless, June says she'll file a police report.
