Wiz Khalifa left Amber Rose weeks before she filed for divorce ... and the trigger that sent Amber's lawyer running to the courthouse was an uninvited 2 AM house call by Amber ... TMZ has learned.
Sources connected with Wiz tell TMZ ... the rapper is telling friends there's a simple reason why he left ... "I just didn't want to be married to her anymore."
We're told Wiz moved out and got his own place, and the day before Amber filed, she went to his house at 2 AM and found him with another woman ... and went nuts.
As far as Wiz is concerned ... he wasn't cheating. He told friends he made it clear weeks earlier the marriage was over.
It's interesting ... even though Wiz moved out weeks before ... he listed the legal date of separation on his divorce response as Sept. 22 -- last Monday.
We're told Wiz is also convinced ... Amber was secretly banging Nick Cannon -- something they both deny.

Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett continue work out their issues following rumors of his infidelity ... that's assuming you believe the whole scandal was real ... and not for their reality show.
The allegedly-estranged couple was spotted out Thursday afternoon riding around in his car, the second time we've caught them hanging out since their marriage allegedly hit the rocks.
As TMZ first reported, Wilkinson and Baskett traveled to Costa Rica together last month where the two vacationed with their kids ... and no reality show cameras.
If they're hanging out as a family off camera, you have to wonder if this whole thing was as fake as Kendra's breasts.

She Says Wiz is a Serial Cheater
He Says 'Pot, Meet Kettle'

8:50 AM PT -- Amber Rose took to Twitter Thursday morning and addressed all the cheating rumors, writing, "Please stop with the fake stories. I would never ever ever cheat on my husband in a million years I think u guys know this.....Unfortunately my now ex husband can't say the same."Amber Rose has filed for divorce from Wiz Khalifa because she's convinced he's been a serial cheater for months ... making lame excuses that just don't hold water.
TMZ broke the story ... Amber filed legal docs Wednesday and it's a bitter break-up, with each accusing the other of cheating.
Sources connected with Amber tell TMZ ... since the beginning of Wiz's tour in July she strongly suspected he was stepping out.
Amber's telling friends ... she wanted to join Wiz on the tour but he came up with a panoply of excuses, the most frequent of which ... she should stay home with their 1-year-old.
She also says he tried to show dominance by telling her he's the bread winner and he needed to be left alone to make money and she needed to stay home. BTW ... we understand that doesn't make a lot of sense, but that's what she said.
As we reported ... Wiz believes it was Amber who was cheating, courtesy of Nick Cannon, and she's throwing up allegations against him as a cover for her own misdeeds.
And Wiz has complained privately ... Amber is one big nag.

Amber Rose has filed for divorce from husband-of-1-year Wiz Khalifa ... and she's gunning for full custody of their kid ... TMZ has learned.
In the divorce docs -- obtained by TMZ -- Amber says they split on Monday and cites irreconcilable differences.
Amber is asking for full legal and physical custody of their 1-year-old son Sebastian. She's willing to give Wiz visitation.
And this is interesting. Amber acknowledges there's a prenup, which you would think would work in Wiz's favor, but she says it's valid ... presumably, she's not challenging it. The docs say the prenup provides spousal support.
As for why they split, there's been a buzz over the last few days of infidelity, but there's no mention of it in the papers.
We got video (below) of Amber with some guy Tuesday in Bev Hills. Our photog asks her if Wiz is keeping a close eye on Nick Cannon -- there are rumors they've hooked up, but she's mum.
Sources connected with the couple say the split is bitter.

But Rodman's rep says the report is total crap ... telling TMZ Sports the retired basketball player is in Hong Kong for business meetings.

9/15/2014 8:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Lindsay Lohan is lying when she says she had to roll Whitney Houston's body bag at the L.A. County Morgue ... because Whitney was never in a body bag.
An official from the Coroner's Office tells TMZ ... Whitney was NEVER in a body bag and no one in the probation program came in contact with Whitney's body.
Lindsay -- who was ordered by a judge to spend time at the morgue to teach her a lesson about drinking and driving -- claimed in an interview she was singled out to roll Whitney's body bag.
Whitney died on Saturday, Feb 11, 2012. The autopsy was performed the next day and her body was gone by morning. No one from any court-ordered probation program came in contact with the body ... according to the Coroner's official.
The official says Whitney was wrapped in plastic with a sheet cover the entire time she was at the morgue. In fact, she was taken out in plastic -- not a body bag -- from the hotel where she died.
