Outkast's Big Boi Divorced From Sherlita Patton

Outkast's Big Boi is divorced from Sherlita Patton, officially bringing their 20 years of marriage to a close.

Legal documents obtained by TMZ show the court entered the final divorce decree last month, making this a pretty quick dissolution. Big Boi just filed for the divorce in April.

In his filing, he said there was "no reasonable hope of reconciliation" between Sherlita and him -- noting they'd already separated and were living apart.

The two agreed to a postnuptial agreement in 2016, in which they divided up their assets and debts, and more recently agreed to a confidential settlement to tie up any loose ends. The exes also agreed to keep details of their finances private.

Both parties are looking to avoid any mud-slinging -- as part of the divorce, they agreed neither would make threats of "injury, maltreating, molesting, harassing, harming, or abusing" in any way shape or form.

Translation: Let's keep this above the waist and amicable.

As we reported, Sherlita filed for divorce from the rapper way back in 2013, demanding financial support and full custody. Big Boi responded she wasn't getting anything without a fight, but the couple reconciled.

JUNE 2014

We talked to Big Boi in 2014, soon after the divorce was called off -- a move for which he gave God all the credit, and even had some advice for other couples in troubled waters.

'RHOC' Star Noella Bergener No Co-Parenting with My Ex ... I'm Out Here Grinding On My Own!!!


The beef's still hot between Noella Bergener and her ex-husband, James, 'cause she says they're not on speaking terms, nor are they "in a great co-parenting place" ... but she's not losing any sleep over the situation.

We caught up with "The Real Housewives of Orange County" star in NYC outside the Baccarat Hotel where she told us things are anything but amicable right now. She sounds hopeful things might change in the future, but for now, she's moving forward professionally and romantically.

Noella's partnering with Seeking -- she was walking into an event for the dating site --  and hoping her own experience inspires other women and men. She says she's single and mingling, but not just looking for fun -- she's actually down to marry again if she finds a Mr. Right.

BTW, she met James on Seeking back in 2015. Interesting, that she's not gun shy even after their split.

We broke the story, James Bergener -- a personal injury attorney known in SoCal as "Sweet James" -- filed for divorce in August 2021. The couple dated for 5 years and were married for one.

The newest member of "RHOC" joined the Bravo show last year, and it sounds like she's anxious to be a current wife again, instead of an ex! 😉

Rupert Murdoch Report: Divorcing Jerry Hall ... Couple Had 6-Year Run

Rupert Murdoch's heading back to divorce court to end his marriage to famed model Jerry Hall ... according to a report.

The CEO and Chairman of Newscorp -- the parent company of FOX -- is splitting from Hall after a little more than 6 years of marriage ... according to the New York Times. The report does not say either has filed divorce papers yet.

This would be Rupert's 4th divorce and Jerry's first. Although she famously dated Mick Jagger for 22 years and had 4 kids with him ... she'd never been married before 2016 when she and Murdoch tied the knot in a small London ceremony.

The 91-year-old Australian media tycoon has 6 children from his previous marriages, but he and Jerry did not have any kids together.

Interestingly, Murdoch swore off social media right after he and Hall got married -- he said he was done tweeting for at least 10 days "or ever."

Unclear if that was a thing he and his new bride agreed to do before walking down the aisle ... but he's been true to his word, not a single tweet since then.

Sooo ... maybe a fresh one's brewing? Something like, "New Twitter, who dis?" 🤷🏽‍♂️

ASHLEY JONES Soap Star's Divorce Finalized ... With Restraining Order on Top

'Bold and the Beautiful' star Ashley Jones is no longer married to her allegedly abusive husband ... but she's walking away with some court-ordered protection.

A judgment's been entered in her divorce from Joel Henricks, and according to the docs, they hammered out child custody issues earlier this month ... and also figured out how they're dividing up all their assets.

The one complicating issue is Ashley accused Joel of beating her and causing a spiral fracture in her hand. As a result, she also asked to extend her restraining order against him through Feb. 20, 2023 ... and the judge granted it.

According to the divorce judgment, obtained by TMZ, Ashley will have physical custody of their 6-year-old son, Hayden, 3 days a week plus alternating weekends. Joel gets him for 4 hours each Tuesday and Wednesday and alternate weekends.

Ashley gets to pick Hayden's school next year, but has to pay 100% of the tuition. She'll also have her son with her for Mother's Day and her birthday every year. She and Joel will alternate custody, annually, for holidays and school breaks.

The divorce does not include child support or spousal support, but the exes agree they'll each cover all expenses incurred while they have Hayden.

As for division of property ... each keeps their personal bank accounts, Ashley gets a 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLE -- while Joel gets a 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLS 550 and a 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 truck.

TMZ broke the story ... Ashley filed for divorce and got a restraining order against Joel back in September 2019, about 3 years after they tied the knot.

'Vanderpump' Stars Tom & Katie See Ya Later to Our Home ... After Filing for Divorce

"Vanderpump Rules" star Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz have officially gone their separate ways, and now, they're doing the same with the home they shared while married.

The two have listed the pad at $2.7 million ... considering they bought it back in 2019 for just under $2 million, there's a chance they'll turn a profit. It's got plenty of ways to entertain guests, including a pool, patio and backyard spa.

Obviously, the listing was expected, Katie recently opened up about moving out of the home and getting an apartment of her own.

In an emotional IG post about leaving the home, she wrote  ... "I hate goodbyes. And this one hurts a lot. The emotions and words are hard to pin down. Closing this chapter on my life feels like attending my own funeral."

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

She continued, "Thank you house for being the coziest brightest home, for the memories, for being my sanctuary, for letting me dress you up like a hallmark movie set at Christmas and for being OURS."

Of course, this all comes about 3 months after Katie filed for divorce from Tom, in L.A. County Superior Court. They both reportedly decided not to keep the house, following the split ... cause it was too much for just one person.

Stephen Apelian of Coldwell Banker Realty holds the listing.

Kenan Thompson Files for Divorce ... Exes Sharing Child Custody

'SNL' star Kenan Thompson is taking the next step in his separation from his wife of 11 years ... filing divorce docs and hammering out custody of their kids.

According to online records, Kenan filed last month in New York to make his announced split from Christina Evangeline all legal. TMZ broke the story back in April that the couple had separated and were successfully co-parenting their daughters Georgia and Gianna. We're told the couple had been secretly separated for a few years.

Sources connected with the former couple tell us Kenan and Christina agreed to share 50/50 custody -- and they are still living close to one another in NYC to make the custody arrangement easier for everyone involved, especially the kids.

Kenan and Christina tied the knot way back in 2011, saying their "I dos" at an aquarium in Atlanta.

As for why they split, our sources have said they simply grew apart as the years progressed.

Professionally, they lead much different lives. While Kenan's always been in the spotlight ... first as a child star on Nickelodeon, and now the longest-running 'SNL' cast member ... Christina works as an interior designer.

We're told the divorce has been amicable, and they're both putting their kids first.

Julianne Hough Officially Divorced From Ex-Hubby Brooks Laich

It's officially official, Julianne Hough and Brooks Laich are no longer married ... their divorce has been finalized.

A judgment was entered in the case Friday, meaning the two are donezo, we don't yet have specifics on their agreement ... but that'll come soon.

Julianne filed for divorce from the former NHLer back in November 2020, about 6 months after the couple had split and after lots of speculation there were issues in the couple's marriage. The two married in 2017, but did not have any kids together.

You might remember, when things were allegedly sour between the two, Brooks had posted he wanted to be "open to all things and present in my relationships." Julianne had revealed she was "not straight" but still wanted to be with Brooks.

The two are now totally and free to do whatever they please with their sexualities.

'Black-ish' Creator Kenya Barris Files For Divorce

Kenya Barris, famous for creating the ABC sitcom "black-ish," is once again pulling the plug on his marriage ... because he just filed for divorce for a second time.

According to new legal docs, obtained by TMZ, Kenya beelined it to a Los Angeles courthouse this month and filed to end his marriage to his wife of over 20 years, Dr. Rania "Rainbow" Barris.

In the docs, Kenya says the couple has been separated since Sept. 9, 2020, and he cites the usual irreconcilable differences as the reason behind the split.

The couple, who tied the knot way back in 1999, have four minor children together ... including a 16-year-old daughter and 3 sons who are 14, 12 and 5 years old. Kenya is asking the court for joint physical and legal custody of the kids. He also checked the box indicating spousal support would be payable to his estranged wife.

Kenya and Rania have been down this road twice before ... she previously filed for divorce back in 2014, but withdrew the request a year later after they reconciled. Kenya filed for divorce in 2019 but later called it off.

Skylar Grey Paid for Divorce by Selling Her Catalog ... Eminem & Diddy Classics Included!!!

Skylar Grey, known for penning the Eminem & Rihanna classic "I Love The Way You Lie" and Diddy's "Coming Home," no longer owns those songs as a result of a bitter divorce with ex-husband Todd Mandel.

Skylar made the sad revelation she had to cash out on her song catalog in order to pay the divorce settlement. She says the majority of her earnings went to taxes ... and her ex-husband's bank account.

She told Variety ... although she'll no longer receive royalties when the songs are used in movies, TV, etc, she still considers the song "her babies," regardless of who owns the rights.

As a veteran artist, it's hard not to see her point. She's appeared on Eminem's last few albums and also has credits with Celine Dion, Nick Jonas, Ciara, G-Eazy, and more.

Skylar's divorce was a particularly nasty split. TMZ broke the story back in 2017 – when she filed a restraining order after accusing him of monitoring her every move with hidden cameras in their home.

Losing "Love the Way You Lie" is a pretty heavy blow -- the song is certified Diamond and has more than 2 billion YouTube views.

However, with the weight of debt lifted, Skylar is pushing forward with her new self-titled album ... aka songs she owns.

The Steve Harvey Morning Show

Steve Harvey didn't wait too long to start crackin' jokes about his daughter's breakup with Michael B. Jordan ... and admits he might've learned a new way to avoid another costly divorce.

Steve talked about his daughter Lori Harvey parting ways with MBJ on his morning show Monday ... and can't help himself from getting in a laughing mood while doing so.

He says his kids are teaching him to "get out early" from relationships ... and even thinks a breakup on social media is the way to go -- citing court costs as a dealbreaker. Don't forget, the guy's been divorced 2 times, and had quite the fight in court back in 2018.

Steve's ex-wife Mary sued him for $60M over mental anguish, saying she was suicidal in the wake of their 2005 divorce. The judge just threw out her case, because it belonged in front of a judge in Texas ... where the divorce was handled.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

As we reported, Michael and Lori reportedly split after being together for over a year ... the reason is still unknown, but the two hadn't posted about each other online in months.

Lori seems to have scrubbed her socials, removing any trace of MBJ ... so, yeah.

Kristin Cavallari Jabs at Jay Cutler After Divorce Comments ... I've Been Partying for 2 Years!!!


Jay Cutler's getting one-upped in the post-divorce celebration department by his ex Kristin Cavallari ... who says Jay's got a lot of catching up to do, and also hints he's already violated their settlement.

We caught up with Kristin at LAX, and asked for her thoughts on finalizing the divorce from the ex-NFL star ... who commented about it this week on his "Uncut with Jay Cutler" podcast. Jay boasted about his bank account not really taking a hit in their divorce, and added, "When the settlement came through, I threw a party."

PodcastOne/Uncut with Jay Cutler

Well, Kristin was pretty much mum to our camera guy on the settlement. In fact, she told us she doesn't think she's allowed to discuss it ... hinting there's a non-disclosure agreement and Jay shouldn't be blabbing either.

Now, as for Jay being in party mode -- well Kristin didn't hold back on that topic. We asked if she'll throw her own post-divorce bash, and she said "I've been partying for 2 years straight" ... a not-so-subtle reference to the divorce filing in April 2020.

You'll recall ... Kristin and Jay called it quits after a decade-long relationship that started after they met at a Chicago Bears preseason game. They got married 3 years later and had 3 kids.

Now that it's over, sounds like they're both celebrating good times.

Jay Cutler Jokes About K-Cav Split ... 'I Threw A Party' Over Divorce Settlement

PodcastOne/Uncut with Jay Cutler

Jay Cutler boasted this week that his bank account didn't take a big hit in his divorce with Kristin Cavallari ... joking, "when the settlement came through, I threw a party."

Cutler shared a laugh about his split with Cavallari during a conversation with Clay Travis on his "Uncut with Jay Cutler" podcast ... saying he believes he made off just fine when he and the former "Hills" star officially broke things off.

"I don't know what I can say, first of all," Cutler said on the podcast with a chuckle. "I don't know if I made money, I just didn't ... [I] did OK."

Cutler, though, made it clear that Cavallari -- who runs an ultra-successful jewelry biz now -- didn't lose her ass in the divorce either.

"I don't recommend divorce for anybody, let me go ahead and say that," Cutler said on the pod (the full episode air Wednesday at midnight ET). "But, it worked out. It worked out for Kristin, it worked out for me. It is what it is."

Jay -- who married Cavallari in 2013, seven years after he was drafted by the Denver Broncos -- reportedly made over $120 million in his NFL career. Cavallari, meanwhile, reportedly has a net worth of around $30 million.

The two had quarreled over money (specifically funds to buy another home) following the announcement of their divorce in 2020 ... but it seems that all got worked out to everyone's satisfaction.

At least, that's what Jay's sayin'.

'Tiger King' Joe Exotic's Husband Dillon Files Prenup ... Joe Cries Fraud!!!


6:54 AM PT -- 5/30 -- Dillon's lawyer, Parastoo Majd, tells TMZ, the prenup was presented to Dillon by Joe "to protect him from Joseph's debts, including debts owed to Carole Baskin." The attorney says there were multiple witnesses to the signing, including a notary, adding the attempt by Joe's attorney to serve a flurry of subpoenas over this is harassment.


And, Dillon's attorney fired this shot ... "It is unfortunate that [Joe] feels he needs to be dishonest; however, not surprising given his character, criminal history, and jail sentence.  'Tiger King' is no longer, but [Joe] seemingly wishes to keep his name in the press under the cloak of this dissolution of marriage proceeding."


His lawyer also added, "We remain willing and able to have a settlement conference and I will be contacting the opposing side to present this course of action."

Joe Exotic's estranged husband, Dillon Passage, has filed a prenup in their divorce case, and Joe's lawyer tells TMZ, it's actually a money grab and the prenup is fraudulent.

On the surface, this seems weird, because you'd think Joe would be the one who would want a prenup, but his lawyer, Autumn Blackledge, says there was never such a document.

Dillon's lawyer filed the prenup Friday, which keeps the property and assets each brought into the marriage and the property and assets they acquired during the marriage separate.

Blackledge says Joe never signed such a document and she believes this is a stall tactic on Dillon's part to delay a final divorce decree, so he can continue to make money off his relationship with Joe.

She goes on to allege Dillon has been on a tear, selling some of Joe's personal items for personal gain while Joe sits behind bars ... speaking of which, Blackledge claims Dillon has never visited Joe in prison.

According to the document, Joe's deep in financial debt. She says his assets total $65,000 and his debts are an astonishing $100,052,000. She says his annual income is $7,800.

According to the document, Dillon owes $20k in student loans and has $110 in his checking account, with a net worth of $20,110.

Sounds like neither has anything to speak of, yet Blackledge claims Dillon has made more than $1 million off the 'Tiger King' franchise.

Joe filed for divorce in March after 4 years of marriage.

Dillon’s lawyer Parastoo Majd says, "The prenuptial agreement was entered into legally by both parties and I will have a full statement after the holiday weekend."

KANYE WEST Revives Custody War With Kim ... In New XXXTentacion Song

Kanye West's back at it again, airing grievances about how his four children with Kim Kardashian are being raised ... this time in a brand new single with the late XXXTentacion.

Ye and X's "True Love" was released on Thursday night, and while the song as a whole explores the struggles of being in a relationship and keeping love alive ... Ye laments in his opening verse about how he doesn't spend as much time with his children as he wants to.

His verse opens with, "Wait, when you see the kids? I'll see y'all tomorrow // Wait, when the sunset? I see y'all tomorrow"

There's more. Ye almost makes it sound like the kids couldn't see him even if they wanted to, saying ... "And you know all the nannies said, "Daddy in Nebraska" / Let the kids dig a tunnel to my house like Chapo."


As we reported ... Kim apologized to her family on the most recent episode of "The Kardashians" for attacks Kanye had made towards them of late, via music -- specifically, in his track "Eazy," where he invoked Pete Davidson.

Kanye has obviously never been one to bite his tongue, especially when it comes to how his kids are being raised. You'll recall ... he and Kim beefed a few months back over 8-year-old North West's use of social media, among other things.

Mind you, Ye hasn't been cut off from the kids, as he just enjoyed a daddy-daughter date with North at Nobu. So, he's certainly seeing them -- but it sounds like he doesn't like the nature of sharing custody in general ... or at least that's the sense we get from his new single here.

Master P Legally Single!!!

Master P has been split from his estranged wife for over a decade, but he's only now been officially declared a single man in the eyes of the law.

According to legal docs, obtained by TMZ, Master P and Sonya Miller are officially no longer a couple ... it remains to be seen if their divorce is totally finalized or if they still have some things to work out.

Believe it or not, Sonya first filed for divorce all the way back in 2013, and Master P has previously claimed they settled everything in private in 2016 ... but never submitted it to the court.

Fast forward to December 2021 -- when Master P submitted docs asking a judge to declare him legally single -- which has now happened.

Master P and Sonya got married in 1989 -- the rapper has 9 kids -- including Romeo Miller (Lil Romeo).


Master P recently celebrated his 52nd birthday, and spoke with TMZ Hip Hop about the awesome party with friends and family.
