Bobby Flay's Wife

Screw You And The Horse You Rode In On

5/26/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0521-bobby-flay-stephanie-march

Bobby Flay's estranged wife says Bobby is so gross he gave her a racehorse as an anniversary gift and pocketed more than a hundred thousand dollars in purses. 

Stephanie March claims in her divorce case Bobby bought her "Dad's Crazy" back in 2009 for their 4th wedding anniversary. Turns out the equine was a champ, raking in $130k in winnings.  

Stephanie claims when it came to the horse Bobby was a hog, not only keeping the purse money but selling the horse for $60k and pilfering every penny.

As we previously reported, March and Flay have been at each other's throats in an ugly divorce battle that just gets uglier. She wants the prenup set aside, claiming it's grossly unfair.

As for the horse scratch, Flay admits he registered it in her name, but denies lining his own pockets with the winnings. 

Giddy up.

Johnny Depp

Dog Smuggling Carries

10 Year Prison Sentence

breaking news

0513-johnny-depp-dogsJohnny Depp going to jail for bringing his dogs to Australia might sound like a joke, but officials Down Under aren't laughing ... and Depp could end up behind bars for a long, long time.

The "Pirates of the Caribbean" star could face up to 10 years in prison -- and receive a fine of up to $340,000 -- for illegally bringing his two dogs into Australia, says the Sydney Morning Herald

The paper says his pilot, who flew Depp and the dogs into the country, could get two years as well.

Depp had the two Yorkshire Terriers -- Boo and Pistol -- flown back the U.S. earlier this month after officials threatened to put the pups down ... all because Depp didn't properly declare them.

Under Australian law, dogs brought into the country must be quarantined for 10 days, to avoid spreading disease.

American Pharoah

My Dad's Sperm

Is Hotter Than Ever!

EXCLUSIVE

0518_American-Pharaoh_Pioneerof-the-Nile_getty-2Imagine getting paid $60,000 ... just to bang. 

That's how much it costs to mate with American Pharoah's father right now ... and the prices are going UP UP UP in the wake of AP dominating at the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness. 

The horse that's getting all the action is Pioneerof The Nile -- who's been nailing mares professionally since 2010 ... and churning out some of the fastest ponies in the game.

TMZ Sports spoke with the people at WinStar Farms, where Pioneer lives (and bangs), who tell us ... "The phones have been ringing non-stop with people asking about him [since the Derby]."

When Pioneer first got into the baby making game, his rate was $17,500. But that was in 2010 ... before his kids started crushing it on the track. Now, his seed runs $60k-a-pop and we're told the price is expected to go WAY up. 

A rep for Pioneer's owner tells us, "He was busy before. His babies were hitting the ground running. But we haven't experienced anything like this. Not even close."

So, how much higher could the prices go if Pharoah wins the Belmont Stakes and takes the first Triple Crown since 1978? 

No one would give us an exact price but they did say it would provide a VERY significant boost. 

After all ... "Everybody loves a winner."

'Cat From Hell' Star Sued

You Can't Scratch Our Deal

Animal Planet's "My Cat From Hell" host Jackson Galaxy's former partners want to scratch his eyes out -- legally speaking ... because they say he's cheating them out of thousands. 

According to the docs ... consulting producer Brian Rochlin and publicist Susan Mainzer say they had a deal with Galaxy -- he'd give them 10% of his take, and another 15% of any back-end money.

Rochlin and Mainzer say Jackson started shorting them after 3 seasons of dutifully paying. In the suit, they acknowledge it was an oral agreement, but hope the fact he's been paying will prove they had a deal. Plus, they say Jackson emailed them ... it was time to "end this business relationship."

Jackson's ex pawtners want him to pony up for the rest of season 4, all of 5 and 6 -- and if it's picked up ... they also want season 7 dough.

We've called Jackson's rep but so far no word back.

0516_robin_thicke_pot_dogRobin Thicke and his 20-year-old girlfriend aren't gonna win any SPCA awards anytime soon, because they accidentally turned their dog into a pothead.

April Love Geary gushed about Bincy last month when she and Robin plunked down $350 for the terrier mix.  

But things went south quickly.  April says a day after they took the pooch home it somehow got into their stash and got sick.  Bincy went to the vet, but apparently she still had a taste for the green stuff.

Three days after returning home, Bincy was back at the animal doc, for the same problem.  This time April insisted it was more of a contact high, but when friends started ragging on her she tweeted, "IT'S NOT ME!!! Some falls on the ground or she sits by him smoking and just inhales it hahaha."

Best we can see, Bincy's back home.  Keep those Funyons away from her, Robin ... they're dangerous.

 April tells us in one of the trips to the vet, although they thought the dog got into the pot the stool sample revealed it was garlic.  It's unclear how the dog got into garlic.

EXCLUSIVE

Model Holly Meowy wants to re-cast the image of cat owners, but her plan went seriously awry when the cat she was clutching took a leak all over her getup.

Holly used to be a wrestling diva for WOW, but she's always been a cat lady.  We found her Saturday at Pussy and Pooch in Bev Hills, a "pet lifestyle" center.

You gotta watch the video.  As she describes her dream that people think of sexy when they think of cat owners, our photog sees the stream running down her stockings.

Urine for a treat. 

Kim Richards

She's Gotta Pay Up

For Pit Bull Attack

0515-kim-richards-kinglsey-tmz-01

One of Kim Richards' best friends just won her lawsuit over a ferocious pit bull attack from Kim's dog last year.

Kay Rozario filed suit, claiming Kim refused to pay her medical bills after Kingsley chomped on her hand in March 2014 ... and bit clear down to the bone.

On Thursday, a judge ruled in Rozario's favor ... but severely limited the amount of damages Kim will have to pay. Rozario was looking for more than a million dollars, but according to court docs ... she was only awarded $8,083.53.

The judge pointed out ... Rozario's medical bills were only $4,083.53, but said she deserved some more cash for emotional distress and trauma after the attack.

Of course, Kim's dog also attacked Kyle Richards' daughter Alexia in November of last year. The dog is currently at a private training facility.

Kim never responded to the lawsuit ... so the judge entered a default judgment.

Dogs Boarding Flight for Life

EXCLUSIVE

0514-johnny-depp-amber-heard-dogs-TMZ-SPLASH-01Johnny Depp's dogs ain't no dummies -- his Yorkies are getting the hell outta Dodge ... just hours before Australian officials promised to put them down.

TMZ has learned Boo and Pistol will be boarding a private jet back to U.S. soil within a few hours. The Friday afternoon departure, Aussie time ... means they will not be euthanized on Saturday as the country's Minister for Agriculture had threatened to do. 

The Minister said Johnny and Amber Heard never declared the pups when they touched down in Oz last month, so they were never quarantined ... which is required for all animals entering the country.

The dogs may be safe, but Johnny's not out of hot water yet. The Minister tells us Depp will likely have to pay a hefty fine ... and that's getting off easy, because Pooch smuggling is punishable by up to 10 years in jail.

Ex-penal colonies play hard ball.

Dogs Kill Sheep

So Get Your Yorkies Out of Australia, Or Else

5/14/2015 7:01 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0514-johnny-depp-amber-heard-splash

Johnny Depp's 2 tiny dogs are capable of wreaking havoc in the Australian animal kingdom, and that's why the dogs now have a target on their adorable heads.

The Minister for Agriculture, Barnaby Joyce, tells TMZ, Johnny and Amber Heard are not giving due respect to the enormous problem the country faces with animals. Joyce says wild dogs kill up to 40 sheep a night ... though we're guessing none of the offenders are Yorkies. 

But size doesn't matter, because Joyce adds they have a real interest in making sure dogs that come into the country are free of disease so Australians can walk their pooches with confidence they won't get sick.

As we reported, Johnny and Amber apparently smuggled Boo and Pistol into the country without the proper quarantine and now authorities say if the dogs aren't out of the country by Saturday, they'll be destroyed.

Accused of Pup Smuggling

Dogs Get Death Sentence

0513-johnny-depp-dogs

Captain Jack Sparrow got carried away with the smuggling -- Johnny Depp's 2 Yorkshire Terrier pups have a death sentence hanging over their heads because Depp allegedly snuck them into Australia.

Australian officials say Johnny and Amber Heard failed to declare Boo and Pistol when they arrived on a private jet last month. Under Australian law the dogs are supposed to be quarantined for a minimum of 10 days ... just to make sure they're not carrying any foreign diseases into the fragile ecosystem.

If Johnny, or more accurately ... Boo and Pistol don't hightail it out of Oz by Saturday -- the country's Agriculture minister says they will be put down.

A rep for Johnny -- who's down there shooting the 5th 'Pirates' flick -- told the AP the dogs are under a "home quarantine" ... but wasn't more specific than that.

Pretty harrrrsh sentence ... but Aussie officials say the law is the law.

American Pharoah Is Gonna Get ...

Sooo Laid!!!

5/4/2015 6:18 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

American Pharoah is gonna be more like American Gigolo after this weekend -- 'cause now that he's a Kentucky Derby champ, he's gonna get sooooo much horse ass ... so says his trainer Bob Baffert

The legendary horse trainer touched down at LAX after watching A.P. dominate at Churchill Downs -- Baffert's 4th time winning the Derby -- and told us Pharoah's stud value just went through the roof. 

"He's gonna get a lot of action," Baffert said. 

Of course, Pharoah still has to get through the Preakness and the Belmont Stakes before he becomes a professional impregnator -- but if he wins those too ... it'll raise his price EVEN MORE! 

Ladies love a winner.
