Tennis Legend Chris Evert Menopause Ruined My Marriage

7/26/2016 12:11 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

Tennis great Chris Evert says menopause is at least partly to blame for the demise of her marriage to Olympian Andy Mill ... insinuating the hormonal change had a major impact on the relationship. 

61-year-old Evert opened up about the situation on Lance Armstrong's "The Forward Podcast" -- when the two were talking about the positive relationships they have with their exes ... including Mill. 

FYI, Evert and Mill had 3 kids together before they divorced in 2006. Two years later, she married Andy's friend, Greg Norman (the golfer). They broke up 15 months after that. 

"[Andy and I] had a rough couple of years," Evert said ... "because I married Greg Norman who was Andy’s friend, and that was … I don’t know, I was going through menopausal stuff."

Evert didn't expand on exactly how menopause affected the relationship -- but said the condition ("what women go through at 50ish") doesn't get talked about enough. 

According to the WebMD, menopause can cause major psychological symptoms in women -- including anxiety, irritability, mood changes, feelings of sadness and aggressiveness. 

The good news for Evert -- she says she's on great terms with Mill and considers him family. 

Jeremy Renner's Ex-Wife He's Stiffing Me On Preschool Tuition

7/25/2016 8:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0725-jeremy-renner-sonni-pacheco-TMZ-INSTAGRAM-01Jeremy Renner's a deadbeat dad who refuses to pay for preschool and catch up on child support ... or so claims his ex-wife.

Sonni Pacheco says Jeremy time and again refuses to pay his half of the $1,600 monthly preschool tuition for their 3-year-old daughter, Ava. In new docs, obtained by TMZ, Sonni also says Renner's fallen behind on child support to the tune of $48,367.

As we reported ... Jeremy and Sonni struck a deal last year for Jeremy to pay $13k a month in child support as part of their divorce settlement -- and he seems to think that should be more than enough dough.

Sonni's docs include a text exchange where Jeremy says, "I'm not sure why you keep coming after more money here Sonni. I don't have the cash to give you. I'm sorry you can't figure out how to care for [Ava] with over 300k."

She's asking the court to make Renner pay for all of Ava's schooling, and all of the back child support.

Robin Thicke, Paula Patton Loaning Stuff to Your Ex is Risky Business

7/24/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0721-robin-thicke-paula-patton-TMZ-01Robin Thicke and Paula Patton both just learned a lesson about divorce ... don't loan and don't borrow your ex's car, because it can cost you dearly.

We're told Paula got pulled over a few days ago by the CHP for speeding and an unsafe lane change. Deputies quickly noticed the registration on the Range Rover had expired.

Now the problems. It's not Paula's Range Rover. It's Robin's. Apparently he loans it to her from time to time. We're told Robin's people just forgot to write the DMV check.

Now here's the lesson for everyone. From Paula's point of view, she's rolling the dice when she drive's someone else's car ... all sorts of things could go wrong, including a traffic stop because the owner didn't pay the piper.

What Robin did is even dicier. If Paula's erratic driving resulted in an accident, Robin would be on the hook if the victim decided to sue.

Short story ... Keep separate property separate, pay your bills, and obey the speed limit.

Calvin Harris Yes, Taylor Wrote Lyrics But I'm Not Gonna Be Her Doormat!

7/13/2016 9:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0713-calvin-harris-taylor-swift-TMZ-01Calvin Harris is taking the gloves off and lighting up Taylor Swift over his/her hit song, "This Is What You Came For."

Calvin reacted to TMZ's story -- that Taylor wrote the lyrics and recorded a demo of the song, which Calvin used to produce the final edit ... with Rihanna singing.

He started with a compliment, saying Taylor is an "Amazing lyric writer and she smashed it as usual." But then came his true feelings -- "I wrote the music, produced the song, arranged it and cut the vocals though. And initially she wanted it kept secret."

During the Twitter rant, he also said it was "hurtful" that Taylor and co. are trying to make him look bad -- and suggested she focus on her new relationship, instead of attacking him.

And then the coup de grace -- a reference to (and confirmation of) her most famous beef. Before him. 

Somewhere Taylor Swift is writing a song.

12:00 PM PT -- Katy Perry just responded in epic fashion ... clearly showing where she stands on the situation.

Taylor Swift Secretly Wrote 'This is What You Came For' And Calvin 'Disrespected' Her

7/13/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0712_taylor_swift_calvin_harris_tmzTaylor Swift really is the creative brains behind Calvin Harris' monster hit "This is What You Came For," and their relationship fell apart because he disrespected her when the song was released ... this according to sources connected with Taylor.

It's a fascinating story. We've learned an early fan rumor about the song is true, but to a deeper extent than anyone suspected. During their relationship, Taylor wrote the song, sat down at a piano and did a demo into her iPhone. She sent it to Calvin, who loved it. They both went into a studio and did a full demo with Taylor on vocals and Calvin doing the beat.

They both knew the song would be a hit, but Taylor wrote it for Calvin and both agreed it was a bad idea to let the world know they collaborated as a couple ... it would overshadow the song.

So Taylor, who kept the publishing rights, used the pseudonym Nils Sjoberg on the credits.

Fast forward to April 29th. Calvin released the song with Rihanna and it became an instant hit. It's been at #1 or #2 on the Dance/Electronic chart for 9 weeks, and is #5 on the Billboard 100.

The problem in the relationship came the day the song was released. Calvin appeared on Ryan Seacrest's radio show and Ryan asked, "Will you do a collaboration with your girlfriend?" Calvin responded, "You know we haven't even spoken about it. I can't see it happening though."

We're told Taylor was hurt and felt Calvin took it too far.

It was a quick downward spiral from that point. One source called it "the breaking point in the relationship." The Met Gala was several days later, when Taylor danced with Tom Hiddleston.

BTW ... Taylor has the right to prohibit Calvin from performing the song, but she hasn't and doesn't plan to exercise that right. Ironically, Calvin once wrote a song with then-GF Rita Ora and when they broke up he yanked her right to perform it.

As for why the squad is talking now ... we're told they're sick of Calvin trashing Taylor and feel he should be thanking her for quietly giving him a smash hit.

We reached out to Taylor's rep. So far no word back.

Nick Young's Ex I'M 22 WEEKS PREGGO ... I Don't Feel Guilty

Breaking News

0706-nick-keonna-iggy-tmz-tmz-01Nick Young's baby mama just revealed she's 22 WEEKS PREGNANT with his second child ... but says they were messing around behind Iggy Azalea's back for A LOT longer than that. 

The woman, Keonna Green, just broke her silence to US Weekly -- dishing all the dirt about her secret affair with the NBA star while he was still engaged to Iggy.

Keonna -- who already has a 4-year-old son with Nick -- says they reconnected romantically BACK IN SEPTEMBER. 

Keonna says she advised Nick to come clean to Iggy -- "I would be like, 'Nick, you cannot be sloppy. You need to be honest [with Azalea].' He would say, 'I don’t want to hear it.'"

She also says she doesn't feel guilty -- because "I’m pretty sure I’m not the only woman."

As for her message to Iggy -- "I wish her a lifetime of success … I mean, I’m definitely not going to apologize for being in love with a man who I have a lot of history with. I do wish her that kind of success and hope that she can get through this difficult time and she and Nick can move forward from this."

Yeah, we're sure that feeling's mutual ... 

Frances Bean Cobain It's War ... Ex Wants Kurt's 'Unplugged' Guitar

7/6/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0705-frances-bean-kurt-cobain-gettyThe multi-million dollar guitar famously owned by Kurt Cobain -- the last one he played before killing himself -- is at the center of Frances Bean Cobain's nasty divorce.

Frances' estranged hubby, Isaiah Silva, claims she gave him Kurt's Martin D-18E as a wedding present. It's the same instrument the Nirvana frontman famously strummed during his epic "MTV Unplugged" performance.

070516-sub-1959-martin-02

The acoustic-electric is something of a holy grail for Nirvana fans. For starters, only about 300 were made before Martin discontinued the model. Kurt, who was left-handed, had the bridge and nut replaced so he could play it upside down.

Frances denies giving Isaiah the guitar, and wants it back, with good reason. It was once insured for $1 million and experts now think it's worth several million bucks. 

We got Courtney Love at LAX Tuesday, who squarely sided with her daughter, essentially saying Isaiah's a scammer.

Iggy Azalea Warns Nick's Baby Mama Talk Crap On Me ... It'll Cost You

7/6/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0705-iggy-azalea-keonna-green-tmz-linkedin-01Iggy Azalea's legal team fired off a scorching letter to Nick Young's baby mama ... warning her that any mention of Iggy in her upcoming tell-all story will spell BIG trouble for her.

We broke the story ... Nick's baby mama, Keonna Green, shopped around and sold her story as the alleged "other woman" reportedly pregnant with Nick's second child ... while Nick and Iggy were still together.

Iggy's lawyer legal eagle, Howard King, didn't mince words in a letter they fired off to Keonna's lawyers, warning them, "Ms. Green has done enough to embarrass herself by her pathetic efforts to profit from Iggy's hard-won celebrity, all in exchange for whatever paltry sums she can garner in exchange for peddling tales of her tasteless exploits."

The letter goes on ... "Any mention of Iggy in your client's efforts to sell a story to whatever tabloid needs to fill its pages with the fetid story of your client's classless antics will be considered a violation of Iggy's rights of publicity ... subjecting Ms. Green and any publication that airs your client's soiled laundry to significant liability."

If she is pregnant, we're guessing no baby present from Iggy.
