Adrienne Maloof My Husband Has a Gun And a Temper

9/7/2012 2:58 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE
0907_adrienne_maloof_tmzAdrienne Maloof is firing back at her estranged hubby by claiming he carries a gun, lacks sound judgment and has a violent temper ... a bad combination. And even worse, she claims the gun is often in reach of their 3 boys.

In a declaration -- obtained by TMZ and filed in family court -- Adrienne claims Paul Nassif is a danger to their children. She cites an incident last month in which she claims Paul was drinking while operating a Kayak and one of the kids who was in the watercraft fell into the water.

She also claims 3 years ago he lost one of their kids for 45 minutes in the wilderness during a camping trip, because he failed to supervise him.

And recently there was a fire across the street and she claims he did nothing to help the kids evacuate.

Adrienne claims Paul has been violent with the kids. She claims he has thrown the kids onto the grass in a fit of rage, spanked them with their pants down, violently yanked their arms and hit them on the head.

Adrienne -- who is fighting Paul for custody -- claims he has been repeatedly violent toward her, allegedly shoving her to the ground, pulling her hair and yelling at her.

Adrienne claims the kids have been present when Paul has shoved and yelled at her.

EXCLUSIVE
0906-adrienne-maloof-paul-nassif-tmz-article-4-aThe divorce between Paul Nassif and Adrienne Maloof has turned into open warfare ... Paul's lawyer just claimed in court Adrienne physically attacked Paul and even got weird with a gun ... TMZ has learned.

Paul and Adrienne are both in court ... fighting over custody of their 3 sons.  During the hearing, Paul's lawyer claimed Adrienne has pushed Paul and was also verbally abusive in front of their kids, calling him "stupid, dumb and an idiot."

According to a declaration filed today, the couple's head of security witnessed Adrienne hit and scratch Paul in the back of their car last summer ... before Paul called her a "bitch."

Later in court, Paul's lawyer also said ... while Paul was asleep one day, she went into his briefcase and removed a gun and then took a picture of it.  He never explained why she did it but made it clear .. it was not kosher.

Paul's lawyer also says Adrienne is using her rep to leak private info about Paul and their kids to the media.

A source close to Adrienne tells TMZ ... "All Adrienne has ever done is protect herself and Paul has been aggressive and violent numerous times.  He is 7 inches taller and weighs 100 pounds more."

Paul dragged Adrienne to court to ask for more time with the kids, but the judge denied his request ... for now. The judge will hold a full hearing on the issue at a later date.

Kim Zolciak's Mother Waging Legal War -- My Grandkids NEED ME!

8/31/2012 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE
0831-kim-zolciak-tmz-courtIn true "Real Housewives of Atlanta" fashion ... Kim Zolciak's getting dragged to court by her own mother -- who's DEMANDING the right to see her four grandchildren, TMZ has learned.

Karen Zolciak filed a Petition For Visitation in GA Superior Court this week -- claiming she used to hang out with her two granddaughters all the time ... baking cookies, making sundaes and spending Christmas in the Bahamas.

Karen's petition also includes her two grandsons -- one of whom was born 2 weeks ago  ... and has yet to meet grandma. 

Karen claims "Bravo TV needed drama for Kim's show 'Don't Be Tardy For the Wedding'" -- so they "portrayed her as a bad person" to strain the mother-daughter relationship.

Granny Z says it got so bad -- Kim and her new husband -- Kroy Biermann -- had the cops kick her out of their wedding because she used an indoor bathroom, instead of a porta-potty.

Now Karen is fighting back -- telling a GA court that NOT seeing her grandkids will cause "emotional or physical harm" to the kids ... claiming "the girls live such a crazy, abnormal life being on T.V ... they need a normal haven to relax."

A judge has yet to rule on the petition.

We reached out to Kim ... no word back yet.

Paul Nassif Files for Divorce from Adrienne Maloof

8/28/2012 10:48 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE
0828_paul_nassif_adrienne_maloof_article_4"Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Dr. Paul Nassif has filed for divorce from his wife Adrienne Maloof ... TMZ has learned.

We broke the story ... Dr. Paul originally filed for legal separation back in July.  The divorce docs filed this morning cite irreconcilable differences.

0828_paul_divorce_doc_sub_Asset
As TMZ previously reported ... Dr. Paul -- repped by powerhouse attorney Lisa Helfend Meyer -- made it clear in the separation docs there is a prenup in place. He also stated he wants joint legal and physical custody of the couple's children.  Paul's divorce petition reaffirms that he wants joint custody and acknowledges the prenup.  Fact is ... they both have their own money.

Adrienne had planned on filing divorce papers simultaneously with Paul ... but backed out at the  last minute. It's unclear if Maloof will ever file the papers ... because it would serve no real purpose.

The couple married in 2002, they have three boys together.

Once she got a good look, Lisa handed the phone back in disbelief, saying, "That's not a ROYAL penis!"

0801_Paul_Nassif_infLegal separation has lifted a weight off Dr. Paul Nassif -- one day after officially splitting from Adrienne Maloof, he removed his wedding ring for a night out ... with his kids.

As for Paul and Adrienne's considerable fortunes -- our source confirms there is a prenup that would protect them if they divorce.

We're also told that Paul does NOT want details of their breakup to become a plot line on 'Housewives' ... because he doesn't believe it will be portrayed fairly or accurately.

Sources close to Paul tell us ... "Dr. Nassif’s sole focus is making sure both Adrienne and the kids are as happy as possible in this very difficult time.  His goal is to ensure the best interest of the children.  He is going to stay focused on them and his patients."

The source also says Nassif has "historically not worn his ring" because he is a real doctor ... with real patients, and a very busy surgery schedule.

EXCLUSIVE
0609-phaedra-parks-regina-bell-gettyWitch doctors and the law -- leave it to the mother of Phaedra Parks ... from "Real Housewives of Atlanta" ... to bring the 2 together in a $6 MILLION defamation filed in Georgia.

Regina Bell (above right) filed the suit against a company called Vibe Holdings for its online book, "Lies of a Real Housewife: Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil" ... in which the author accuses Bell of "witch-doctory" and concocting potions to abort children.

In the docs, Bell says all of the accusations are BS ... claiming she has been a respected preacher in her community for 33 years, and there's no way in hell she ever created any potions, or offered to help abort unborn children.

Now Bell is demanding a retraction and $6 million in damages from Vibe -- saying she is publicly hated and ridiculed because of the book.

The filing comes on the heels of her daughter's $30 million suit against Vibe ... also claiming defamation due to the book.

A judge has yet to rule.
