'Lopez' Star Ray Diaz Busted for Domestic Violence

6/21/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Actor Ray Diaz -- who starred alongside George Lopez for one season on "Lopez" -- allegedly assaulted his GF and repeatedly prevented her from calling for help.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Diaz and his GF got into an argument that turned physical earlier this month at his Hollywood apartment. Diaz allegedly grabbed and pulled her so violently, she suffered neck scratches and bruising on her leg.

Our sources say Ray's gf tried to call 911, but he stopped her by grabbing the phone. That's when she made a last ditch effort -- and a pretty smart one -- by commanding Alexa to dial 911 for her. Unfortunately, we're told Ray unplugged the device.

The woman filed a police report 2 days later, and cops photographed her alleged injuries. Ray -- who appeared on "Celebrity Family Feud" with George and Oscar De La Hoya -- was arrested for domestic violence. He's out now on $50k bail.

We've reached out to Ray's camp but, so far, no word back.

Jesse Williams Divorce Got Doubly Expensive $100,000 a Month in Child and Spousal Support

6/20/2018 10:17 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

Jesse Williams' divorce just got WAY more expensive, because a judge has just doubled his monthly nut.

Jesse has been ordered to pay $50,000 a month in child support to estranged wife Aryn Drake-Lee.  He had previously been ordered to pay over $50k a month in spousal ... that was upped from $33k.

Jesse and Aryn have 2 kids, and the boom was inevitably going to be lowered on Jesse in the child support department. His lawyers had argued the $50,000 a month in spousal support should cover child support expenses, but that's not the law. Courts separate child from spousal support.

According to court docs, Jesse pulls in $521,000 a month.

The support orders are temporary until the couple either reaches a final settlement or the court imposes a final order.

Daily Mail first reported the change in child support.

Robert Herjavec Settles Lawsuits with Ex-GF ... Over Sexual Assault, Extortion Claims

6/20/2018 10:27 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Robert Herjavec and his ex-gf are finally seeing eye to eye -- they're both walking away from the lawsuits they filed against each other ... his for extortion, and hers for sexual assault.

According to docs, Herjavec and Danielle Vasinova filed to dismiss their lawsuits ... due to a settlement. TMZ broke the stories ... Robert sued Danielle last year, claiming she was demanding $20 million in exchange for her silence about their sex lives.

A few hours later, she sued him, alleging the "Shark Tank" star had sexually assaulted her while at an underground sex club in L.A. ... and also at home.

Both lawsuits have been dismissed with prejudice, meaning they can't be refiled.

Danielle's docs include a document saying she apologizes for the allegations "and for any problems I have caused Robert or his family." She says she did NOT receive any money. 

'Riverdale' Star Charles Melton 'I'm Truly Sorry' For Fat-Shaming Rant

6/19/2018 2:03 PM PDT
Breaking News

"Riverdale" star Charles Melton is apologizing and blaming immaturity for some really heinous fat-shaming comments he made that have come back to haunt him.

Melton is addressing the now 6-year-old tweets that have gone viral after someone mined them out of his timeline. Low lights include, "Word of wisdom for the day...if your [sic] fat...don't look in the mirror" ... and "Don't tease fat kids, they already have enough on their plates."

Melton now says, "I'm truly sorry for making inconsiderate comments several years ago and apologize to anyone I hurt. What I posted and said was immature, offensive and inappropriate. I am ashamed of how I acted and there is no excuse for that behavior."

The actor was a total unknown back in 2012, which explains the tweets going unnoticed. His first acting gig didn't come until a "Glee" role in 2014.

He added, "I’m striving to do better and will use this experience to grow, helping others to understand how these types of statements are completely unacceptable.”

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.

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.
