Britney Spears Ex Jason Pleads Guilty to Stalking ... Now On Probation

Britney Spears may be a free woman, but that's not the case for her ex Jason Alexander ... he's been tethered to probation after pleading guilty to stalking, TMZ has learned.

According to the Franklin Police Department, Jason was arrested on Dec. 30 and taken to the Williamson County Jail in Tennessee. He was eventually charged with violation of a protective order and aggravated stalking.

District Attorney General Kim Helper tells TMZ ... Jason pled guilty to misdemeanor stalking on Jan. 4 and was given 11 months, 29 days of probation. As part of the deal, he'll have to undergo a mental health screening and submit to random drug screenings.

Helper added Alexander won't be allowed to have any contact with the female victim. The nature of their relationship is unclear.

As you might recall, Britney and Jason dated back in '04. They abruptly got married in Vegas ... but that lasted all of 55 hours and the marriage was annulled shortly thereafter.

Jason later claimed Britney's team forced them to end the relationship and made it hard for the two to communicate afterward ... and while she seems to be in a better place these days, Jason's clearly struggling.

Last January, he was hit with a DUI and other charges related to drug possession ... later in August, he was arrested for trespassing into a "non-secure" area at a Nashville airport.

Hopefully, things turn around for him in '22.

JOSH'S KAROKE CLASSICS
TMZ.com

Josh Duhamel is lined up to be a married man once again -- but he didn't pop the question without first doing some serious work on the microphone -- as evidenced in these videos.

Josh and his now-fiancée Audra Mari were staying at the Bungalows Key Largo Resort in Florida last week, and decided to join in on some good karaoke fun. We're told there's a weekly event at a lounge overlooking the water, and at one point Josh got up on stage.

He's certainly got a mix of hits ... including "Tennessee Whiskey," "Show Me The Meaning of Being Lonely" by The Backstreet Boys and a crowd-pleaser "My Neck, My Back" by Khia.

Audra didn't perform alongside Josh, but the audience seemed to eat it up regardless.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

Saturday marked a big day for Josh and Audra -- who served as Miss World America 2016 --  the actor announced they had gotten engaged after two years of dating. Safe to say the proposal went down during the trip to Key Largo.

Josh was famously married to Fergie for 8 years before they announced they were getting a divorce in 2017. They have one son together.

Master P Judge, Declare Me Single!!!

Master P says he’s been separated from his estranged wife for over a decade and he's ready to start a new chapter ... so he wants the judge to step in and declare him single.

In new legal docs, obtained by TMZ, Master P says there's no reason he and his ex, Sonya Miller, should remain married any longer ... so he's asking the court to restore their single status ASAP.

Master P points out Sonya filed for divorce way back in 2013 after they separated in 2010, and he says they settled all their issues in 2016 and reached an agreement, but claims the paperwork was never submitted to the court.

So, to move things along, P has now filed legal docs requesting a bifurcation of his divorce ... legal speak for both parties getting single status now, and handling the rest of the divorce issues later.

It looks like Master P thinks the divorce has dragged on long enough and wants to move towards wrapping it all up at this point.

Tyga NO FELONY CHARGES In Domestic Violence Case

Tyga just got a little bit of good news in his domestic violence case ... we've learned he will NOT be hit with a felony.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the police passed the rapper's DV case to the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office so they could decide if they wanted to file charges against Tyga.

But, according to the L.A. County D.A. ... the case has now been kicked over to the Los Angeles City Attorney's Office ... and that means he won't be charged with a felony because only the D.A.'s Office can charge folks with a felony.

TURNING HIMSELF IN
TMZ.com

TMZ broke the story ... Tyga was arrested for felony domestic violence last month, turning himself in to authorities after his ex-girlfriend, Camaryn Swanson, claimed he got physical with her.

ALL BRUISED UP
@camarynswanson / Instagram

Camaryn filed a police report, claiming Tyga hit her ... and she later posted video showing her alleged injuries. Tyga's camp claims her allegations are "false and will be disproven."

The exes reportedly started dating early this year, and in March they went Instagram official. It's unclear when they split, but we're told it happened before the alleged incident.

We're told, Camaryn's injuries and the evidence did not rise to a felony charge and that's the reason it was kicked to the City Attorney.

Tyga is not completely off the hook yet ... he could still be hit with a misdemeanor by the City Attorney ... but he doesn't have to worry about a felony anymore.

Zac Stacy Bond Not Increased ... Despite Victim's Emotional Testimony

EVANS AND STACY IN COURT
FOX 35 Orlando

7:45 AM PT -- Stacy's bond was not increased Wednesday ... this despite Evans emotionally arguing that it should be.

Evans -- who appeared in the courtroom in a blue dress and grey sweater -- explained to a judge that she believed Stacy's bond should be raised and he should be placed on home confinement.

In her testimony, Evans said, "I am afraid for my safety and my children's safety."

Evans also said she's suffering "serious and likely permanent" injuries sustained in the attack ... and added that she has only been home a few times since the incident to briefly obtain items.

A judge, however, ruled Stacy's bond would not be increased ... saying his presence in the courtroom on such short notice made him comfortable with the current amount.

The judge, though, did order Stacy to stay out of the state of Florida -- except for when he's required to be there for proceedings in his criminal case.

The judge added that Stacy -- who revealed in court he now has plans to live in Alabama -- is still to have no contact whatsoever with Evans indefinitely.

The woman who was violently beaten by Zac Stacy is set to testify in court against the ex-NFL player on Wednesday ... hoping a judge makes it harder for Stacy to be released from custody.

Kristin Evans will be in the Orange County, Fla. courtroom in just minutes ... arguing that Stacy's bond should be heavily increased.

11/19/21
FACING THE JUDGE

A judge initially set the bond at $10,150 for Stacy -- who was charged with two felonies over the Nov. 16 attack on Evans -- but Evans argued on social media afterward that was nowhere near enough.

Evans said she feared Stacy would try to hurt her again if he was released from custody -- and now wants a judge to up his bond amount at the hearing.

Stacy, meanwhile, has been ordered to be in the courtroom in person -- and it's all slated to begin at 7 AM PT.

HORRIFYING ABUSE

As we previously reported, Stacy was hit with one count of aggravated battery and one count of criminal mischief after video showed him punching Evans and then throwing her into a television in Oakland, Fla. earlier this month.

Stacy wasn't initially apprehended at the scene, but he was ultimately arrested in the Orlando area on Nov. 18.

Cops: NASCAR's John Wes Townley Attacked Ex-Wife With Hatchet ... Before Shooting Death

Former NASCAR driver John Wes Townley attacked his ex-wife and another man with a hatchet just before he was shot to death ... this according to police.

It's all spelled out in new documents, obtained by TMZ Sports, which show cops say Townley showed up to his ex's house in Athens, Ga. on Oct. 2 and allegedly snapped.

In the docs, cops say Townley got to the home and attacked his ex, Laura Townley, and another man, Zachary Anderson, with a hatchet.

Police in the documents say, though, Anderson shot John in the altercation ... striking the former driver and accidentally hitting Laura, as well.

Cops say John was shot through the chest and later died from his injuries at a local hospital. Police added Laura was struck in the abdomen, but is expected to survive.

Cops say an investigation into the incident is still ongoing.

Police noted in the docs John and Laura had recently finalized a divorce.

John had been a pro racecar driver for over a decade ... and famously won a NASCAR Camping World Truck Series at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in 2015.

Rick Ross AGREES TO PAY CHILD SUPPORT

Rick Ross just started cutting checks to his baby mama ... the judge in his paternity case just signed off on his agreement to cough up monthly child support payments for their 3 kids.

According to new legal docs, obtained by TMZ, the "Aston Martin Music" rapper will pay his baby mama, Briana Singleton, $11,000 per month in child support.

The docs say RR also has to foot the bill for their children's health insurance, and he's got to help her pay for the kids' extracurricular expenses once the figure goes north of $7,560 ... with Ross on the hook for additional annual payments of up to $3k per child.

Rick also agreed to cut a check to Brianna's attorney for $25,000, but he can afford it ... the docs say RR's monthly income is $585k, compared to $142 a month for his baby mama.

TMZ broke the story ... Briana told Rick last year he needed to take COVID-19 tests to see their 3 kids.

Now, he'll be paying up, too.

Mama June's Ex-BF Geno's Wanted in Alabama ... Doing Rehab in S. Carolina

Mama June's ex-boyfriend isn't getting any breaks from the judge -- even though he's in rehab, he's in rehab in the wrong state ... which is why he's now a wanted man.

According to new legal docs, obtained by TMZ ... a bench warrant's been issued for Geno Doak in Macon County, Alabama for failing to comply with the terms of his sentencing in his crack cocaine case.

The warrant says Geno's to be taken into custody by any Alabama law enforcement officer and held without bail until he can have a hearing.

The thing is -- as we first told you -- Geno's in South Carolina after checking into a recovery center there earlier this week, and the facility said he made a 120-day commitment to inpatient treatment.

Doak filed docs to loop in the judge from his crack cocaine case about his whereabouts, but unfortunately for him ... he was supposed to be in Alabama as part of his sentence, and failed to relocate there as required.

So, rules are rules, and rehab or not ... the judge has made Geno a wanted man in 'Bama.

Delmon Young Ex-MLB Star Arrested ... Allegedly Punched Ex-GF In Chest

Former MLB star Delmon Young -- the MVP of the 2012 ALCS -- was arrested Monday ... after his ex-girlfriend alleged he punched her in the chest and shoved her to the ground.

Officers at the Davie Police Dept. in Florida, according to docs obtained by TMZ Sports, say the incident all went down at around 11:44 PM on Monday night.

Cops in the docs say a woman claiming to be Young's ex-GF said the former baseball player showed up to her home and began banging on her door and ordering her to come outside.

The woman, cops say, then claimed when she stepped outside of her apartment, Young confronted her and got violent with her.

Cops say the woman told them Young punched her in the chest, and then shoved her to the ground as she attempted to flee and call 911.

In the docs, police say surveillance video captured the whole incident ... saying the footage revealed Young did hit the woman. Cops say the video also showed the woman "screeching in pain."

In the docs, cops note Young is 6 feet 2" and approximately 280 pounds ... while the woman is 5 feet 5", 130 pounds.

Cops claim in the docs Young ultimately fled the scene in a white SUV Maserati ... and say the 35-year-old blew through a stop sign and then hit 90 MPH in a 45 MPH zone.

Young was eventually arrested and booked on 4 charges ... including domestic violence. Jail records show he's still behind bars.

This is far from Young's first brush with the law -- the ex-Tampa Bay Rays outfielder has been arrested multiple times before, including in 2016 when he was accused of roughing up a hotel valet.

Young played in the MLB from 2006 through 2015 ... piling up 109 home runs and a career batting average of .283.

Joe's ex, Dillon Passage, just revealed he has a new boyfriend named John. Dillon says he intended to keep their relationship private, but adds "lately I’ve been having a hard time dealing with things happening in my life and John has been my rock and helping me get through it all."

What's interesting ... Joe says the situation with Dillon, his current husband, is still "up in the air," though he implies Dillon no longer wants to be married to him.

Our sources say official divorce paperwork has still not been filed, and Dillon tells us ... "Joe and I are still on great terms and supportive of each other. We will always be in each other's lives."

We are told it's a relatively new relationship that he just now feels comfortable sharing.

LEAD AWAY BY COPS
TMZ.com

Michael Strahan's ex-wife has been arrested for violating an order of protection involving an ex who claimed she was being terrorized by the woman ... TMZ has learned.

Jean Muggli Strahan was taken into custody Friday night in New York City and booked for criminal contempt.

Marianne Ayer says she was in a relationship with Jean which ended, but claims that's when the alleged harassment began.

Marianne had filed legal docs in June accusing Jean of grand larceny, disorderly conduct, harassment, coercion and forcible touching. Marianne claimed in the legal docs Jean took her son's plastic gun which he used in a student film and threatened her, claiming the gun was real.  Marianne went on to claim Jean abused her pets by allegedly shoving and kicking her German Shepherd.

As for Friday's arrest, Jean allegedly violated the order of protection by showing up at Marianne's house.

Diplo Sued by Ex for Sexual Battery ... He Calls it 'Campaign of Harassment'

The woman Diplo has filed a restraining order against and sued for stalking and harassing him has now filed her own lawsuit against the DJ ... claiming he pursued her when she was underage, had sex with her when she was an adult and never disclosed he had an STI.

Shelly Auguste claims in new legal docs, obtained by TMZ -- that Diplo first contacted her via Twitter when she was 17 and solicited nude photos of her ... while also sending her sexually explicit and vulgar comments.

She alleges they exchanged explicit photos before meeting in person for the first time in 2018, when she was 21. Auguste claims she later moved to L.A., and Diplo really began pressuring her for sex by sending unsolicited graphic photos of himself in sexual situations.

According to the docs ... Auguste says she heard a rumor Diplo had herpes and questioned him about it in late 2018, and he got angry and cut off all communication. However, she says they made up in 2019, and in April of that year, she claims she gave in to the pressure and lost her virginity to Diplo.

Auguste alleges Diplo recorded video of their sexual encounter despite her telling him she didn't want that.

Then, in July 2019, Auguste says she went to Diplo's show in Las Vegas, and claims afterward he tried to coax her into a threesome with a girl she believes was underaged at the time. According to the docs, Auguste says she was intoxicated and refused, but claims Diplo forced himself on her as she tried to fight him off.

Shortly afterward, Auguste claims she was diagnosed with chlamydia, and believes she got it from Diplo because she says he was her only sexual partner at the time. She claims he ignored her when she confronted him ... and their issues didn't stop there.

As for Diplo's side, his attorney, Bryan Freedman, tells us, "As has already been made clear in the restraining order we obtained against this individual, she has repeatedly stalked, defamed, threatened and attempted to shake down [Diplo] and his family."

Freedman continues, "These latest false claims are just part of that ongoing campaign of harassment, and we will not allow them to deter us from pursuing justice against her to the fullest extent possible under the law.”

As we first told you ... Diplo filed for a restraining order against Auguste in December 2020, not long after she made revenge porn claims against him. The DJ claimed their relationship soured that year, and she was the one posting his nudes everywhere.

Diplo then sued Auguste in April, alleging she was stalking and harassing him. Now, she's suing him ... for sexual battery, assault, defamation, infliction of emotional distress and fraud.

AOC to Jeff Bezos Government Money Ask Is Really Rich ... While Ex Donates Billions!!!

TAKE NOTE, JEFF
TMZ.com

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez thinks it's pretty rich to see a billionaire seeking handouts from Uncle Sam while their ex-wife gives away billions of dollars -- so she's ripping Jeff Bezos.

We got AOC on Capitol Hill Thursday and asked how she feels about the Amazon and Blue Origin boss' ex, MacKenzie Bezos, recently donating nearly $3 billion of her roughly $37 billion.

AOC says it's interesting to see what the exes are doing with their boatloads of cash ... applauding MacKenzie for giving it away like candy and blasting Jeff for asking the government for $10 billion in taxpayer funds to help his aerospace company land on the moon.

JUNE 2021
LAUGHING ALL THE WAY TO SPACE
TMZ.com

AOC's beef with Jeff is an offshoot from Sen. Elizabeth Warren ... remember, she told us last week Bezos' space ambitions are a slap in the face to taxpayers, who she says are essentially funding his missions because JB doesn't pay his fair share in taxes.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

Fair to say, neither the Congresswoman nor the Senator would be interested in the final seat on Jeff's upcoming maiden voyage ... even if they had the nearly $30 mil it's apparently gonna cost.

La La Anthony Files for Divorce from Carmelo

La La and Carmelo's Anthony's marriage has been through a separation, a reconciliation, and years of speculation -- but now they've amicably decided to officially call it quits.

La La filed divorce docs Thursday in New York, 11 years after tying the knot with the NBA star, and cited irreconcilable differences.

Sources close to the former couple tell TMZ ... they've been separated for awhile but remain friends, as always, after 16 years together, and everything about the divorce is amicable.

We're told they both wanted to take time to ensure a private and smooth transition in their relationship for their 14-year-old son, Kiyan -- who's always their top priority -- and they remain fully aligned as parenting partners.

As we reported, Melo and La La split in 2017 after 7 years of marriage amid rumors he cheated on her, but by late 2018 it seemed they were working things out.

We even saw La La in Portland to support Carmelo as he made a transition in his career after getting signed by the Trail Blazers. It appeared things were on track.

In mid-2019, La La reportedly called their marriage "strained" amid more cheating speculation and things remained on shaky ground even though the family quarantined together in 2020.
