9/15/2016 3:01 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


UFC Hall of Famer Royce Gracie -- one of the greatest MMA fighters of all time -- is pulling the plug on his 22 year marriage ... TMZ Sports has learned.

Gracie filed divorce docs in L.A. County Superior Court seeking to end his marriage to Marianne Cuttic. 

The two were married back in 1994 and have 4 children together -- 3 of them are under the age of 18. 

In the docs, 49-year-old Gracie cites irreconcilable differences for the split -- but the most interesting part ... he's the one demanding spousal support. He also wants her to pay his attorneys fees. 

Shocking, considering Gracie is one of the most famous MMA fighters ever -- and just fought Ken Shamrock at Bellator 149 back in February. 

Marianne is a podiatrist in Los Angeles. 

Royce is requesting joint physical and legal custody of their minor kids. 

According to multiple reports, Gracie and his wife have been battling with the I.R.S. -- which has accused them of owing more than $1 million in back taxes.

0913-ludacris-tamika-fuller-tmz-instagramLudacris is beyond pissed at his baby mama, Tamika Fuller ... accusing her of altering photos of their daughter to make him look like an unfit father.

According to legal docs obtained by TMZ ... Tamika claims she picked up their 2-year-old daughter from daycare in May after she was in Luda's care -- he has primary custody -- and noticed "bruises and abrasions" on her face.

Tamika says she took their daughter to a hospital for emergency care, and a social worker there recommended DFCS get involved. In docs, she says DFCS wanted to keep Luda away from the girl.

Ludacris filed his own docs though, saying Tamika made up the whole story ... and even digitally edited photos of the alleged injuries and submitted them to the court. He adds, DFCS records will back that up.

Tamika says the whole case has been squashed -- their daughter is back in Luda's care -- but she insists he used his wealth and fame to intimidate DFCS investigators.

Shaq Comes Back At Shaunie O'Neal ... I'm Right, Our Kids Are NBA Locks

9/11/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Shaq and Shaunie O'Neal are proving the best fights come AFTER marriage ... 'cause the big fella is DOUBLING DOWN on his NBA prediction for their sons ... despite the objections of mama.

A little backstory ... we got Shaq out last week, and he guaranteed us BOTH his 16-year-old son, Shareef, and his 13-year-old brother, Shaqir, would make the NBA one day.

Awesome dad pride ... but when we got Shaunie, the mama of the bunch, out earlier this week ... she said Shaq needed to slow his very large roll 'cause that's too much pressure for teenagers.

So when we got Shaq out in NYC recently and asked him if he'd changed his mind on the whole thing, the Diesel had two choices ... back it up ... or back out.

He actually chose option #3 ... GO EVEN HARDER.

Check it out ... and try not to pick sides between family.

Master P's Ex He's Using Our Kids to Save a Buck

9/10/2016 2:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0902_master_p_Sonya-Miller_tmz_instagramMaster P is full of it when he says he's broke, and even worse -- he's turned 3 of his kids into pawns in his divorce war with Sonya Miller ... according to Sonya, anyway.

Sonya is now firing back at her estranged husband and their children. We broke the story about the kids writing letters to the judge saying they preferred living with Dad because Mom is a drug addict.

But in new docs, Sonya says that Master P is pissed about recent court orders for him to pay her what she's owed ... so he used the kids to mislead the court. 

She takes a shot at P's parenting too ... saying his decision to involve the children was selfish and not in their best interest. Sonya's also not buying his claim he only makes $2,441 per month.

She claims his net worth was $350 mil within the last 5 years, plus ... he still rolls in a Rolls.

Bottom line -- Sonya thinks Master P is more concerned about his bottom line than child custody.
