Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie The Prenup is Clear Splitting Properties No Biggie ... But Kids Will Be

9/26/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0923_bragelina_prenup_compositeBrad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are not going to have big financial issues, because they were only married for 2 years and they might have been expecting a divorce since day 1 ... 'cause they have a prenup spelling out exactly who gets what ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to the couple tell us their prenuptial agreement is ironclad and details the specifics of their combined fortune ... a reported $400 mil.

Brangelina have 12 total properties together ... all of which they snatched up either before they were married or before they were even dating. 7 of those belong to Brad, 2 to Angie and 3 which they bought together prior to tying the knot in 2014.

It's unclear who exactly shelled out what for those 3 properties, which include a vineyard in France, a mansion in New Orleans and an apartment in NY ... but we're told the prenup makes divvying all that up simple. 

Rather than properties being an issue in the divorce, we're told CUSTODY of their kids will be where the war really plays out. 

As we reported ... Brad plans to fight for joint physical custody of their 6 children.

Antonio Cromartie's Mom Moves Out Of House He Bought Her ... After He Threatened Eviction

9/25/2016 12:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0923-antonio-cromartie-TMZ-01The mother of NFL star Antonio Cromartie has moved out of the house he bought her back in 2007 and then tried to evict her from ... TMZ Sports has learned.

As we previously reported, Cromartie attempted to kick his mom, Cassandra Wilkerson, out in August after she refused to start paying the $700/month mortgage payments, 'cause she thought the house was a gift.

We spoke to Wilkerson, who tells us she and her husband weren't successfully evicted, but decided to get the hell out of Dodge -- and bought their own house on September 16th. 

She says she hasn't spoken to Antonio in two months because of the house disagreement and "doesn't understand why he's so vindictive" toward her.

We reached out to Cromartie, but he had no comment.

Brad Pitt Prosecution 'Highly Unlikely' in Jet Incident

9/24/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0923_brad_pitt_getty-2It's almost certain Brad Pitt will not be prosecuted for any alleged assault against his son ... so say multiple law enforcement sources involved in the case.

Our sources say, with the conflicting accounts of what happened between Brad and 15-year-old Maddox 30,000 feet above the ground, there's no way to conclusively prove Brad intentionally inflicted harm on his son. 

As we reported, there are conflicting stories about the events leading to the confrontation on the jet. Based on all of our sources we believe the most credible sequence of events is that Maddox said something to Brad that pissed him off, Brad then lunged at his son, Angelina stepped in between them and at that point there was some physical contact between Brad and Maddox.

It appears Brad made contact with Maddox somewhere in the vicinity of the shoulder area. The biggest issue -- whether it was intentional or inadvertent. It's the job of prosecutors to prove it was intentional, and we're told that would be extremely difficult.

On top of that, we're told DCFS social workers saw no evidence of injuries on Maddox ... none.

And there's more ... no one filed a police report after the incident.

Finally, our sources say these cases are particularly difficult because of the blurred line between abuse and parental discipline.

As we reported, since the incident occurred in the air, the FBI has jurisdiction, and our law enforcement sources say it's "highly unlikely" anything will come of the agency's probe.

On the other hand, the L.A. County Dept. of Children's Services has a broader scope than the FBI. DCFS will go beyond the jet incident and talk to the kids and parents about the overall living situation. 

Stay tuned.

Brad Pitt He's Fighting for Joint Custody of Kids

9/23/2016 7:57 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0921-brad-pitt-getty-3The battle lines are now drawn ... because TMZ has learned Brad Pitt will fight for joint physical custody of his 6 children.

Sources who have been with Brad since his separation with Angelina Jolie last week tell us ... Brad has made it clear ... he will engage in legal war to stop his estranged wife from getting what she wants -- sole physical custody, giving him only visitation rights.

We're told when Brad answers Jolie's divorce petition, the stage will be set for the central conflict.

Fact is ... judges favor giving joint custody to parents unless there's a showing one of them poses some sort of risk to the kids. As we reported, Jolie maintains Pitt has an anger problem which is exacerbated by weed and alcohol. And, as we reported, Brad lunged at and struck 15-year-old Maddox on the plane ... she says it was intentional but he says it was not.

For now ... they agreed Jolie would have the kids, while the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services investigate the airplane incident

Brad Pitt Conflict Over Confrontation with Son on Jet

9/23/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0921-brad-pitt-getty-10Brad Pitt crossed a line he had never crossed before by lunging at his 15-year-old son on a private jet and making contact with him, but the details of precisely what happened are in conflict ... and frankly, murky.

TMZ broke the story ... the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services launched an investigation after getting an anonymous tip that Brad allegedly attacked his eldest son on a trip back from France. 

Here's what's alleged -- Shortly after the plane took off, Brad and Angelina began arguing and Maddox jumped up to verbally defend his mom. We're told Brad then lunged at the boy and Angelina jumped in between them to block her husband. Brad connected in some fashion with his son.

Now here's what's in dispute:

-- Whether Brad and Angelina were arguing, or whether Maddox was acting up on the plane.

-- Whether Brad made contact with his son intentionally or inadvertently.

-- Whether Brad was drunk at the time. Although authorities were told Brad was drunk when the incident went down, we're told Angelina says he was sober at the time but got drunk later in the flight. Sources connected with Brad tell TMZ he was drunk at the time of the incident.

As we reported, Angelina wants sole physical custody of the kids. A source connected with Angelina says this is not about alcohol ... she would never leave Brad if it was just a substance abuse problem. The source says this is all about protecting their children.

Brad has denied there was any abuse, but sources connected with him acknowledge there was an incident on the jet.

And our sources say Brad has never acted aggressively toward his kids in the past -- other than verbally -- and Angelina felt the incident on the plane was a deal breaker.

Brad Pitt Under Investigation for Child Abuse

9/22/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0921_brad_pitt_gettyBrad Pitt is under investigation by the LAPD and L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services for allegedly getting verbally abusive and physical with his children, and that's what triggered the divorce ... TMZ has learned.

Sources familiar with the situation tell us, Brad, Angelina and their kids were on a flight last Wednesday when he allegedly got wasted on the private jet. He allegedly went wild, screaming and getting physical with the kids.

We're told the plane landed at an airport around 8 PM, and witnesses say Pitt continued his rant on the tarmac, and even tried leaving in one of the fuel trucks.

Our sources say someone either on the plane or the tarmac anonymously reported the incident to the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services. We're told Brad and Angelina have already been interviewed and DCFS plans to interview the kids as well. That investigation is ongoing.

We're also told the LAPD has the case ... which is routine when anyone reports child abuse. We do not know the specifics of the alleged abuse ... just that it was supposedly both verbal and physical.

Our sources say this incident triggered Jolie to separate from Brad the next day and file for divorce just days later.

A source close to Brad tells TMZ, "He takes the matter very seriously and says he did not commit any abuse of his children," adding, "It's unfortunate that people involved are continuing to present him in the worst possible light."

Metta World Peace Allegedly Terrorized By Deranged Woman Slashed Tires, Stalked Kids, Violent Threats

9/21/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0920-metta-world-peace-TMZ-01Metta World Peace claims he and his family have been targeted by a deranged woman who's threatened violence, attacked his property and waited for his kids after school ... and now, he's obtained a restraining order against her.

TMZ Sports has learned ... Peace went to the LAPD and told cops a "stranger," named Miesha Shakes, had been harassing him in a series of disturbing emails dating back to 2015.

Peace says the emails contained violent threats -- including one that read, "I apologize in advance, I'm going out with a bang. This will be the worst thing to ever happen in Westwood. Call cops I'm ready."

She also threatened to attack his car, accused him of raping women and threatened him with a knife ... Peace alleged in court documents.

Peace claims she made good on some of her threats -- throwing a brick through a window in his building and slashing his tires.

He also claims she physically attacked his 19-year-old daughter and "was waiting outside for my 13 yr old daughter after school."

Peace is clearly scared -- and asked the judge to keep her "1 million" yards away from his family, home, workplace, kids' school and "Earth."

The judge ultimately ordered the woman to stay 100 yards away from all of the requested places ... except Earth.

A hearing in the case is scheduled for later this month.

EXCLUSIVE

Gene Simmons wants more Americans profiled ... but Nick Simmons just wants Gene to quit shooting off his mouth about everything other than playing bass for KISS.

We got this awesome clip with Gene's son outside The Nice Guy, where we asked him about his dad saying the key to the war on terror is racial profiling. Nick thinks he knows why Gene believes that -- but still, absolutely disagrees with him.

He's obviously looking forward to going toe-to-toe with his father over this topic. In fact, the way Nick put it to us ... it could be a family wide battle.

Brad Pitt Angelina's Anger Claims are BS He's NOT a Dangerous Dad

9/20/2016 1:29 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0921-brad-pitt-angelina-jolie-gettyAngelina Jolie is lying by spreading the word ... Brad Pitt has anger issues that become dangerous when mixed with weed and alcohol ... so say sources directly connected with Brad.

The sources did not address the weed and alcohol issues.

As we reported, Angelina wants sole physical custody, with Brad getting only visitation. Our Brad sources say he wants to "share" physical custody with Angelina to make sure he remains a "present father" to the children. As for whether he asks for joint custody in his legal response ... stay tuned.

EXCLUSIVE

0914_Joy-Bounds-Lyfe-Jennings_tmz-gettyJoy Bounds is terrified R&B singer Lyfe Jennings wants to hurt her and take their boys.

According to docs obtained by TMZ ... Lyfe's ex and mother of their two sons claims he's tried brainwashing their boys against her and threatened her with violence.

Lyfe was arrested in 2008 and reportedly sentenced to prison for 3 years for kicking down the door of Joy's residence, firing shots, and leading police on a high-speed chase.

Joy says Lyfe's still very scary, claiming he made veiled threats like "I'm gunna remember this" and telling her she was "not that hard to find."

She says he's continued a campaign of brainwashing the kids, recently taking them to a park and feeding them lies about her.

Lyfe tells us he never threatened Joy or the kids in any way. He claims she's throwing a tantrum because he cussed her out about being a bad mother. He also says he's a good dad ... and everyone knows that.

The judge issued a temporary restraining order, keeping Lyfe 200 yards away from Joy and the 2 boys.
