Brad Pitt Therapists Won't Listen ... Threatens to Go Around Deal with Angelina

12/7/2016 3:43 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1207-brad-pitt-angelina-jolie-tmz-03Brad Pitt thinks he's getting the short end of the stick when it comes to his visitation time with his kids, and has a plan to change that -- but unfortunately for him, their child therapists don't agree.

Brad and Angelina Jolie's lawyers filed a series of emails for Wednesday morning's hearing. In one of them his attorney, Lance Spiegel, says despite Brad complying with every aspect of the child therapy process ... "the therapy team has ignored or disregarded issues that [Brad] has raised." He's not specific about the issues.

It's clear from the docs Brad is frustrated by the limited amount of time he gets with his 6 kids ... 1 visit per week. The issue is, Brad signed a temporary custody deal months ago in which he agreed -- along with Angelina -- they would both let the therapists call the shots.

The emails from Brad's attorney suggest he's trying to circumvent that deal. In fact, Spiegel says "Regardless of [the therapists'] views, there is no reason for Brad not to request court orders" for more access to the kids.

In late November, Brad's lawyer asked if Angelina would agree to the following schedule in December:

- one session with the twins (Knox and Vivienne)
- one session with the middle kids (Zahara and Shiloh)
- one session with the twins AND the middle kids
- one session with the older kids (Maddox and Pax)

The sessions would be monitored and 30-60 minutes long. Spiegel adds, if Maddox and Pax don't want to see him ... Brad wants an extra session with the other 4 kids.

Angelina's team turned down the offer. Her attorney, Laura Wasser, fired off a very firm response saying Brad's team is ignoring what therapists feel is best for the kids. She implores them to give the therapists a chance to "tell us how the kids are feeling." 

As we reported, Brad was shut down in his effort to keep the case sealed ... but it's now clear from these emails he's determined to spend more time with his brood, ASAP.

EXCLUSIVE

1206-taylor-kinney-lady-gaga-tmzSorry Little Monsters, Lady Gaga and ex-fiance Taylor Kinney are not back together -- despite a pic of him with her mom -- the exes are just doing the conscious uncoupling thing.

Gaga and Kinney called it quits in July after 5 years together, so fans freaked when he showed up on Gaga's Instagram this week. Sources tell us they still have a great relationship and talk from time to time.

Kinney happened to be in NYC and found out Gaga's Born This Way Foundation was doing the Shared Kindness event at 30 Rock. Gaga's in Europe but her mom, Cynthia, helps run the foundation and Taylor offered to help her out.

Gaga was moved enough to post the pic of them at the fundraiser.

Of course, A-Rod is dating Anne Wojcicki -- who was married to Google co-founder Sergey Brin until they split in 2015.

But it seems they're on good (or at least decent) terms because they didn't just hang out at the event last night ... they teamed up onstage and addressed the crowd at one point during the awards ceremony.

1205-Sergey-brin-Anne-Wojcick-at-Breakthrough-Ceremony-photos-primaryFYI, Brin is reportedly worth more than $30 BILLION. 

A-Rod and Wojcicki started dating earlier this year. Brin attended the event with his girlfriend, Nicole Shanahan ... an accomplished lawyer/business mogul (who also happens to be smoking hot). 

The event itself was wall-to-wall rich people and celebs ... including Mark Zuckerberg, Vin Diesel, Kevin Durant and more.

Johnny Depp Divorce Amber's Getting $6.8 Million ... She'll Donate It, Eventually

12/1/2016 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1126-amber-heard-johnny-depp-tmz-3bJohnny Depp and Amber Heard finally hammered out their divorce settlement, and the charities she promised to fund will get their cash ... with a slight delay. 

Sources connected to the exes tell us Johnny will pay Amber $6.8 million -- that's the $7 mil originally agreed upon, minus the $200k he already donated to the ACLU and Children's Hospital L.A. in her name. We're told she'll get all the money within about 12 months.

Amber will then follow through on her vow to donate ALL of her settlement dough. We're told she'll make multiple payments to CHLA and the ACLU ... with the plan being to pay the full amount by the end of 2018.

Sources not connected with Amber are scoffing, saying they don't think the charities will ever get the money. 

Bottom line -- Johnny will get a charitable tax write-off for $200k, Amber will write-off her $6.8 mil worth of donations ... and they can both put the nightmare marriage and divorce behind them.

Bethenny Frankel Ex-Hubby Says I Need a Relationship with your BF

11/23/2016 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1122_bethenny-frankel-jason_hoppy_tmz_gettyBethenny Frankel's ex-husband is bristling over threats by her current boyfriend to sue him for trashing her in emails, saying he's forced to interact with the BF because the guy's constantly around his daughter.

Jason Hoppy fired off a letter to the lawyer for Dennis Shields, who threatened to sue Hoppy claiming he was sending a flurry of disgusting, harassing emails to Bethenny and cc'ing him.

Hoppy, who Shields claimed sent emails calling Bethenny ugly, old and irrelevant, never specifically disputed the content of what he sent, but he did say, "As a concerned father, I often have to contact others when I cannot reach my daughter through her mother."

Hoppy goes on to say as long as Shields is in his daughter's life, "I have no choice but to have some type of relationship with him."

Short story ... Shields threatened to sue Hoppy if he didn't stop the emails, so it seems like they're gonna have a date in court.

Bethenny Frankel My Ex's Mommy Can't Be Our Notary

EXCLUSIVE

1122-bethenny-hoppy-tmz-getty-2Bethenny Frankel thinks she got motherf***ed by a notary public -- or more accurately ... mother-in-law f'd.  

The 'RHONY' star is suing attorney Jamie Andrew Schreck for allowing Jason Hoppy's mother to notarize a trust they created for a swanky apartment back in 2011 ... happier times for the then-couple.

Sources close to Bethenny claim Schreck should've known Carol wasn't authorized to notarize docs in New York state -- and Bethenny thinks this could render the whole trust invalid.

According to the docs, she's suing for legal malpractice, breach of contract, fraud, notary misconduct and breach of fiduciary duties. Schreck had no comment on Bethenny's lawsuit.

Dennis Shields, who's been dating Bethenny for a year, had his lawyer fire off a letter to her ex, Jason Hoppy, accusing him of sending him dozens of emails with "increasing frequency and hostility."

Sources connected with Shields, who's the Chairman of YieldStreet, say the emails are actually to Bethenny but Hoppy cc'd Shields. There's a running theme in all the emails ... that Bethenny is ugly, old and irrelevant and Shields should run for the hills, like all her boyfriends before.  

We're told Hoppy has emailed that Shields is in a "revolving door of men" and that "he'll be gone soon."

Our sources say Hoppy has sent 49 emails in the last 70 days, and both Bethenny and Shields have had it. Shields' lawyer threatens him in the letter, obtained by TMZ, to stop sending emails immediately, or he'll sue.

J Lo and Marc Anthony A Kiss is Not Always Just a Kiss (UPDATE)

11/18/2016 5:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

update_graphic_red_bar8:00 AM PT -- Sources connected with the exes -- who were there last night -- tell us "the kiss" was peer pressure fueled. We're told Marc and Jennifer only did it because the crowd was chanting "beso," and it would've been awkward if they didn't.

Nothing romantic, we're told. Purely crowd-pleasing.update_grey_gray_barMarc Anthony planted one on ex-wife Jennifer Lopez Thursday night at the Latin Grammys.

Marc won Person of the Year at the Vegas shindig. Before he was honored J Lo came out and the 2 performed their duet, "Olvidame y Pega la Vuelta."

Let's not forget he's remarried -- but during his speech, in what seems to have been damage control, Marc expressed his love for J Lo ... as a sister! (For non-Spanish speakers it starts at 17 seconds).

Take a look Jennifer's expression.

Marc's now posting multiple shots of him planting one on his bros last night. Seems like he's trying to make a point about casually kissing lots of people.

Tell it to the missus, Marc.

Margaret Cho My Ex-BF Threatened ... 'When You're Dead, You're Dead'

11/17/2016 10:07 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1116-margaret-cho-tmzMargaret Cho's ex-boyfriend lost it when she dumped him, and resorted to sending her menacing social media threats ... according to legal docs the comedian filed. 

Margaret claims she broke up with David Moraga back in May after nearly 2 years because he was "severely controlling and abusive." She says he refused to accept the breakup, and wouldn't move out of her home ... so she evicted him and changed the locks.

In the docs, she says Moraga undeterred and broke into the house, changed the locks again and barricaded himself inside. That same week, she says he posted a pic of her lying on the ground with the caption, "When You're Dead, You're Dead."

Margaret went to court seeking a temporary restraining order, fearing David would physically harm her. The judge agreed and ordered him to stay 100 yards away, and to stop posting threatening or derogatory pics or statements.
