Antonio Sabato Jr. Divorce Final ... He Gets the House and Car

6/18/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Antonio Sabato Jr. is officially a single man, just in time to hit the Congressional campaign trail.

According to the docs, the former soap star and his ex, Cheryl Marie, reached an agreement on their divorce back on December 31, 2017. Happy new year, indeed. However, it took several months for the judge to sign off.

The exes have joint legal and physical custody of their 7-year-old son, Antonio III. As for property, he gets the house and a 2015 Fiat. They both agreed to return the Maserati they were leasing.

Antonio has to pay child and spousal support, though it's light for a Hollywood divorce. He'll fork over $533 a month for his kid. Cheryl gets $350 monthly in alimony, but only until April 2019. They were only married for 5 years.

He also has to pay her $10k for attorney fees, and agree not to take any drugs without a valid prescription. As we reported, Cheryl claimed Antonio abused prescription drugs, and was worried about their son's safety. Sabato admitted issues with sleeping pills, but told us he's an outspoken advocate on fighting addiction.

He'll be the Republican candidate for California's 26th District, come November.

EXCLUSIVE

Pete Davidson was technically single when he started dating Ariana Grande ... TECHNICALLY, but "Friends" fans might not agree.

Sources close to the newly engaged couple say Pete and his ex-gf, Cazzie David, were "on a break" in early May -- but not necessarily broken up for good -- when his relationship with Ariana sparked. But they hit if off, and it quickly became clear Pete was serious about moving on with Ariana.

The good news -- it seems all parties involved are happy with the end result. As we reported, Cazzie's not upset or dwelling on her ex's quick rebound. Hey, if it's good enough for Ross and Rachel.

As for Ariana and Pete -- they're still in full PDA mode with Davidson posting a pic wrapped up with his fiancee, captioned ... "u know what you’d dream it be like ? it’s better than that."

Iman Shumpert Not Releasing Music With Teyana ... Here's Why

6/17/2018 12:15 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Iman Shumpert says he doesn't need his wife's help with his rap career ... 'cause releasing songs with Teyana Taylor will only HURT his music goals!!

The NBA star told us he takes his rap seriously ... and if he blows up 'cause of songs he released with his famous boo -- he says it just wouldn't feel right.

"I could use my wife, but it's just I would rather people connect with me in certain ways," Iman told TMZ Sports at LAX this week.

Don't get it twisted ... Shump's got songs with Teyana -- and he says he has even more with celebs that would skyrocket his career.

But building a following that doesn't revolve around hoops or the big-name people he knows is something he takes seriously.

So, sorry, Teyana ... that collab looks like it's gonna be on ice for another minute.

Chris Hardwick Shelved by AMC, Dropped from Kaaboo Fest After Ex-GF's Sexual Abuse Claim

6/16/2018 10:20 AM PDT
Breaking News

12:10 PM PT -- AMC Networks says Hardwick's show, "Talking with Chris Hardwick," will not air while it assesses the situation, and he is stepping aside from moderating planned AMC and BBC America panels at Comic-Con in San Diego next month.

AMC adds ... "We have had a positive working relationship with Chris Hardwick for many years. We take the troubling allegations that surfaced yesterday very seriously."

Chris Hardwick is losing another gig in the wake of his ex girlfriend, Chloe Dykstra, claiming he emotionally and sexually abused her.

The Kaaboo Festival in Del Mar, CA says it's pulled Hardwick out of the lineup for this year. The annual music and comedy event doesn't go down until September, but organizers already made up their mind -- Hardwick will not perform his comedy routine, and a replacement act is TBA. 

As we reported ... Nerdist scrubbed all of Hardwick's content on Friday, hours after Chloe posted an emotionally charged essay with details of the alleged abuse. She claims Hardwick forced her to have sex and made her live under strict rules.

However, Chris denies ever sexually assaulting her, and adds they only broke up because she cheated on him.

Jeremy Meeks Paying His Ex 6 Figures ... Gets Custody, Moving Son to U.K.

6/16/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jeremy Meeks is gonna have his own modern family after striking a deal with his ex-wife that gives him primary custody of their 9-year-old son, and gives her a hefty sum of money ... TMZ has learned. 

Sources tell us the "hot felon" -- turned "still-hot ex-felon" -- and Melissa Meeks reached the agreement shortly after their divorce was finalized earlier this month. Under the terms, we're told, Jeremy gets primary physical custody of Jeremy Jr. and Melissa will get a check ... somewhere in the 6-figure range. 

As we reported, Jeremy and Melissa's original divorce deal had her getting primary physical custody with a 70/30 split in time with each parent. They've flipped that under the new deal and, starting this summer, Jr. will be living in the U.K. with Dad and his gf, Chloe Green.

We're told Jeremy and Chloe have already enrolled Jr. in a private school he'll begin attending in the fall.

The new arrangement allows Jeremy to merge both of his families. Remember, he and Chloe -- the Topshop heiress -- just had a baby of their own.

Now, little Jayden Meeks-Green will grow up with his big bro. 

Joel Embiid Message to Ladies: Taste the Process!

6/16/2018 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Is Rihanna missing out by not dating Joel Embiid? He seems to think so. 

The following is a direct quote: 

"I don't want to talk about Rihanna but, you know, I feel like every girl in the world should, you know, taste the process and see what the process is like."

Gotta love a man with confidence. 

Remember, Embiid tried to shoot his shot at Rihanna back in the day, but it didn't quite work out for the young NBA star. 

So, when we saw him out in Bev Hills the other day, we asked him about it -- and he made it clear he's moving on ... to EVERY OTHER WOMAN ON EARTH!

"Every girl in the world is missing out. You know you got to taste the process, you gotta see what the process is like."

Who's hungry?

Chris Hardwick Nerdist Site Cuts All Ties Following Sexual Abuse Allegations by Ex-GF

6/15/2018 11:51 AM PDT

Chris Hardwick's been scrubbed from the Nerdist website he founded after accusations of emotional and sexual abuse by his ex-girlfriend, Chloe Dykstra, seem to clearly implicate him.

Legendary Entertainment removed all references to Hardwick on the site Friday and says he no longer has any affiliation with the company since his contract expired in 2017.

This comes on the heels of an explosive essay by Dykstra -- who dated Hardwick from 2012 to 2014 -- in which she reveals she was forced to have sex with and follow strict rules made by a man 20 years older than her with whom she was in a relationship.

She does not name Hardwick, but says this man went from being a "podcaster to a powerhouse CEO of his own company." Hardwick is almost 20 years older than Dykstra and is the founder of Nerdist Industries ... and the timeline laid out in her essay also matched up with her relationship with him.

Dykstra alleges the man she dated didn't allow her to go out at night without him, didn't allow her to have male friends and told her she couldn't drink because he was sober. She says, "I would try to sleep in as late as possible so my days were shorter. I stopped listening to music entirely. I ceased to be. I was an ex-person."

In her essay, Dykstra also claims she was regularly pressured into sex against her will for fear of upsetting or losing the man, and after she finally left him ... her career was railroaded by him and she was blacklisted at age 25.

Hardwick has yet to respond, but when we talked to him in October about the Harvey Weinstein scandal ... he told us women should go to the internet and speak up, saying "social media's really empowered people to not be victims anymore."

Jennie Garth Divorce Should be Simple We Got a Prenup!!!

6/15/2018 11:57 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jennie Garth doesn't seem like she wants to draw out her divorce, so it's convenient she and her estranged hubby signed a prenup ... according to new legal docs anyway.

The former '90210' star claims she and Dave Abrams agreed to a prenup before they wed in July 2015, so she wants it to be followed during their divorce proceedings.

Garth agrees on their date of separation -- August 29, 2017 -- and says she wants to change her name back. The ex-couple doesn't have any kids together.

We broke the story -- Abrams filed for divorce in April, which would put the kibosh on Garth's third marriage -- but he never mentioned the prenup.

Donald Trump Jr. & Vanessa Back to Hanging Out ... After She Shows Support

6/15/2018 11:44 AM PDT

Donald Trump Jr. wasted little time getting together with his estranged wife, Vanessa, after she fiercely defended his new relationship with FOX News host Kimberly Guilfoyle.

DTJ and Vanessa were seen leaving their apartment in NYC on Friday morning and appeared to jump into the same waiting SUV. They were probably together since they're still co-parenting their kids ... but ya gotta imagine he thanked her after she blasted haters dogging on his new GF.

One media outlet went as far as saying Kimberly should be fired because she couldn't possibly stay neutral while dating a Trump kid. One thing's for sure ... Don Jr.'s got a strong ally in Vanessa, who filed for divorce back in March.

So ... happy ex, happy life?

Pete Davidson's Ex Not Crying a River Over Ariana Engagement

6/15/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Pete Davidson's ex isn't moping after their breakup and his lightning fast rebound/engagement to Ariana Grande.

Multiple sources tell TMZ ... Cazzie David is already moving on post-breakup from the 'SNL' comedian. We're told she's not dwelling on the drama surrounding Pete and Ariana's instant engagement -- namely the timeline of his breakup from Cazzie and his hookup with the singer.

Cazzie took off for Africa shortly after she and Pete split in early May, but we're told the trip had been booked with friends long before -- and was in no way a spur-of-the-moment distraction from the breakup.

Been in Africa, what’d I miss ??

A post shared by CAZZIE (@cazziedavid) on

Oh, and that June 1 IG post -- after getting home -- saying, "what'd I miss ??"

It seems to be dripping in sarcasm aimed at Pete, but our sources say that ain't so. We're told she was fully aware about Ariana at that point, but the post was a genuine shout-out to friends ... letting them know she was back from a safari, where she'd had no Internet.

In short, Pete's in her rear-view mirror and getting smaller by the minute.

Jason Momoa & Lisa Bonet We've Got the Lay of La La Land

6/15/2018 7:35 AM PDT

"Aquaman" star Jason Momoa might be a fish out of water, but the guy's still chilled -- and hot AF -- doing a romantic picnic date with his wife, Lisa Bonet.

Momoa got to kick it with the missus Thursday in L.A. ... a nice break from all the work he's been doing lately in and around the water. Most recently he was in Hawaii doing reshoots for his superhero blockbuster, and showing off his "Aquaman" skills

The couple got married last year after 12 years together. They have 2 kids together -- 10-year-old Lola and 9-year-old Nakoa-Wolf -- but the picnic was all about some QT. Adults only.  

As they say, distance makes the heart grow fonder ... and they're looking really fond of each other.

6/14/2018 11:11 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Brody Jenner and his bride are back in L.A. after their kick-ass destination wedding ... but they're obviously still kinda salty about Caitlyn deciding NOT to attend.

We got Brody and Mrs. Kaitlynn Carter Jenner Wednesday evening at LAX as they returned from tying the knot on an exotic Indonesian island. We asked Brody if there were any plans to send a video of their magical day to anyone (*cough, cough* Caitlyn) who might have missed the wedding.

Brody scoffed at the idea but you have to see what the missus stepped in and said -- a barely subtle jab.

TMZ broke the story ... Brody was deeply hurt Caitlyn wasn't gonna attend, instead choosing to attend a benefit in Vienna. 

The wound is still fresh.

Gisele Tom's Biggest Problem ... is Da Feet

6/14/2018 6:35 AM PDT
Breaking News

What's Tom Brady's Achilles heel?? A naked Achilles heel ... 'cause the Patriots superstar's biggest problem is being barefoot! 

TB12's wife, Gisele Bundchen, revealed the random fact in Vogue's "73 Questions" ... when she answered several rapid fire questions about the New England Patriots quarterback.

One of the most interesting parts of the video ... when Gisele reveals how Tom quarterbacked a diabolical scheme back in the day to trick her into thinking her apartment flooded ... so he could propose! 

Tom even makes a brief appearance in the video before Gisele spills all his secrets about their relationship and how she prepares for Patriots games.

But, the most bizarre part is when Gisele -- who's on the July 2018 cover for Vogue -- is asked to share one thing we don't know about TB12, and that's when she says the dude can't stand being barefoot.

Might explain why Brady never played for Rex Ryan ...
