Nicolas Cage I'm Free!!! Quickie Divorce Granted

6/3/2019 12:15 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Nicolas Cage and Erika Koike do divorce quickly too!

Three months after the exes tied the knot in a spur of the moment Las Vegas wedding ... they are officially divorced. According to court records, the judge in Clark County, NV granted their divorce on Friday, May 31.

Remember, Nic had filed for an annulment of the marriage -- 4 days after their "I dos" -- claiming the union was based on fraud, because Erika didn't disclose a couple little things: her criminal history and her relationship with another person.

The marriage was rocky almost immediately. Hours after the March 23 wedding they were fighting very publicly near the valet at the Bellagio.

We also got pics of them in a heated argument moments prior to getting married.

Erika opposed Nic's move to annul, and a month later filed docs saying the marriage was not only totally legit, but also that she wanted spousal support -- for 4 days of marriage.

Based on the docs, it seems Nic failed to score the annulment, and settled for a good old fashioned divorce. It's unclear if Erika is getting support. We've got calls into Nic's reps.

Bottom line is they're both single and ready to mingle. Hopefully not anywhere near a Vegas chapel.

Total days Erika and Nic were married to each other, btw ... 69.

Fergie Separation Done ... Files to Divorce Josh Duhamel

5/31/2019 5:23 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Fergie's had enough of the separated life ... she and Josh Duhamel are finally getting divorced ... TMZ has learned.

Fergie filed divorce docs Friday in Pasadena, and no one could call it a rash move. The exes have been apart publicly since September 2017 ... when they announced they were breaking up. In a joint statement, they said they'd actually been separated since earlier in 2017.

However, neither made a move divorce-wise ... until now.

The singer and actor have one child together ... their son Axl, who is 5 years old now.

They'd been married for 8 years before announcing their break-up -- and they had started dating in 2004.

Josh has been dating pretty openly. In the last year, he's been seen out with Rebekah Graf, Eiza Gonzalez ... and just this week he was at Nobu in Malibu with a mystery brunette.

Late last year, Josh was on Dax Shepard's podcast when he said he wanted more kids and was looking to date someone young enough to make that a reality.  

'Maleficent' Producer Joe Roth Files for Divorce

5/28/2019 8:04 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Joe Roth, one of the most prolific producers in Hollywood who's producing the upcoming "Maleficent," has filed for divorce ... TMZ has learned.

Joe, whose credits include "Snow White and the Huntsman," "Oz the Great and Powerful," Charlie Sheen's "Anger Management," "Heavy Weights" and "The Forgotten," filed Friday and his wife, Irene, filed her response at the same time.

Joe, the former Chairman of Walt Disney Studios, and Irene are both requesting joint custody of their 2 kids, a boy and a girl. 

There's a lot of money on the line. Joe is the majority owner of the Seattle Sounders major league soccer team along with billionaire Paul Allen.  

Based on the docs, it has all the signs the divorce has already been mediated. The address of the law firm is that of disso queen Laura Wasser, whose M.O. is to mediate and then file both a petition and response at the same time.

According to the docs, the issue of spousal support has not been resolved, however, based on what appears to be a full mediation, it seems like the book is closed on all financial issues. 

Joe and Irene married in 2006.

MacKenzie Bezos Buh-Bye, Jeff ... I'm Giving Away $17 Billion!!!

5/28/2019 9:18 AM PDT
Breaking News

9:17 AM PT -- Jeff is apparently very supportive of MacKenzie's pledge, saying, "MacKenzie is going to be amazing and thoughtful and effective at philanthropy, and I'm proud of her. Her letter is so beautiful. Go get 'em MacKenzie."

MacKenzie Bezos is taking her half of her nearly $37 billion divorce settlement with Jeff Bezos, and giving it all away ... to charity.

MacKenzie announced on Tuesday morning she was signing The Giving Pledge ... vowing to donate at least $17 billion. She became the 3rd richest woman in the world when she and the Amazon founder made their divorce official less than 2 months ago -- so she wasted almost no time deciding what to do with her fortune.

Her decision to join the likes of Bill and Melinda Gates and Warren Buffett in signing The Giving Pledge -- aside from being incredibly generous -- also puts her ex-husband in a conspicuous position.  

Jeff had been widely criticized, as recently as last year, for not signing the Pledge. He's the only billionaire among the top 5 richest Americans to NOT sign it. MacKenzie signing so quickly after the divorce makes it seem like, she wanted to all along.

BTW, Buffet has already pledged more than $45 billion, and Melinda and Bill are forking over $46 bil.

As you know, MacKenzie and Jeff announced their split back in January, when Jeff went public about his relationship with TV host Lauren Sanchez. The divorce was hammered out in record time -- considering they were divvying up the world's largest fortune -- and in April they reached the settlement.

In her letter, MacKenzie wrote, "My approach to philanthropy will continue to be thoughtful. It will take time and effort and care. But I won’t wait. And I will keep at it until the safe is empty.”

The "I won't wait" ... sure seems like a message to someone whose name might rhyme with Schmeff Schmezos.

EXCLUSIVE

Two beautiful people are back on the market ... NBA star Chandler Parsons and model Cassie Amato have broken up, TMZ Sports has learned. 

But, you know what that means ... THE RETURN OF BACHELOR CHANDLER!!!

We're told the split wasn't nasty or anything ... they just grew apart and ultimately decided things weren't working out. They only dated for a year so it ain't the end of the world.

Plus, he's been based in Memphis while playing for the Grizzlies while she's an L.A. girl who operates out of Bel-Air (though we're told he'll be in L.A. this summer too). 

The signs were there ... Parsons hasn't posted a photo of Cassie since October and he's essentially been scrubbed from her IG page too. 

Speaking of her IG page, she's ridiculously good looking and instantly becomes one of the hottest single chicks in L.A. 

Don't feel too bad for Chandler, he's gonna be just fine ... tall, handsome and entering the last year of his 4-year $94 MILLION contract with the Grizzlies. 

Parsons has a reputation for dating beautiful women ... from Bella Thorne to Toni Garrn and Arianny Celeste

Khloe Kardashian I Haven't Given Up on Marriage ... But I Have No Interest in Dating Right Now

5/20/2019 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Khloe Kardashian says as devastating as her divorce to Lamar Odom was ... she'd absolutely get hitched again ... but that requires a date or 2, and at least for now that's not in the cards.

Khlo got super personal with Disso Queen Laura Wasser on her podcast, "Divorce Sucks!" which drops Monday. Laura asks her straight-up -- would she be open to tying the knot yet again?

Check out Khloe's answer -- it takes an interesting turn. She says she was heartbroken when her marriage to Lamar fell apart ... and it seems it affected her even more than her super difficult breakup with Tristan Thompson.

Yet, Khloe says she has no regrets about either relationship. It's like they say -- better to have loved and lost than never ... yeah, you get it.

Khloe's got no one with whom she wants to hook up or ignite a new relationship with. In fact, dating is NOT on the table ... not at all.

These days it's all about True ... true that.

Kylie Jenner My Pad's Officially Jordyn Woods-Less

5/19/2019 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kylie Jenner and her ex-bestie have a little more closure in their relationship ... because Jordyn Woods' belongings are no longer in her guest house.

Sources close to Kylie tell TMZ ... Jordyn came by and picked up her stuff about a week and a half ago, months after her hookup with Khloe's baby daddy, Tristan Thompson, got her ex-communicated from the Kardashian family.

We're told the reason it took so long is that Kylie was super chill about the situation ... but somebody else in the family wasn't. Our sources say that the person -- we're not allowed to say who -- recently noticed Jordyn's stuff was still there and thought it was ridiculous and disrespectful ... like she was using Kylie's pad for storage.

Kylie decided to get Jordyn to get her stuff out quickly after that ... to keep the peace in her fam.

We're told Kylie wasn't home when Jordyn came over, but the housekeeper let her in and there were no issues. As we've told you, the 2 have remained amicable throughout the ordeal even though they're not as close as they used to be. Our sources say they still text each other on occasion, as well.

Jordyn and her mom -- especially her mom -- have even come out and praised Kylie and others in the fam and said they have love for everyone.

Khloe Kardashian Baby True Can Feel Our Energy ... So I Keep It Cool w/ Tristan

5/16/2019 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Khloe Kardashian says she tries to keep the peace around her baby daddy, Tristan Thompson, for the sake of their kid ... who she believes can sense when something's amiss. 

The Kardashian dished with Disso Queen Laura Wasser on her hit podcast, 'Divorce Sucks!' which drops Monday. Khloe and Tristan weren't married, but they share a child together ... and definitely went through a nasty breakup that might as well have been a divorce.

Khloe tells Laura she monitors the energy she puts out around baby True, who -- at only 13 months old -- can still pick up on bad vibes ... according to her mom.

That's why Khloe says she didn't have an issue with Tristan coming to True's first birthday party last month -- where she says they were civil with each other and made it work.

More importantly, Khloe says she wants to afford her daughter the same types of experiences and memories she had growing up ... and Daddy's gotta be a part of that.

Bottom line for Khloe ... she'll do what it takes for her daughter, and that includes putting on a happy face when needed. Anything for mommy's little girl, it seems!!!

You can catch Laura's full episode with Khloe Monday on PodcastOne and Apple Podcasts.

Donnell Rawlings to Pete Davidson Embrace Ariana and Kate Heckling ... It's What We Have to Do!!!

5/2/2019 1:30 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Donnell Rawlings says Pete Davidson can't have it both ways -- if he's gonna bang bad bitches, he can't dodge the personal jabs from haters that come along with it.

We got the comedian at LAX and asked what he thought about Pete bailing on a stand-up gig in Connecticut after the owner mentioned Ariana Grande and Kate Beckinsale's names while warning the crowd not to heckle.

Some people -- Pete included, probably -- might think this is harsh, but Donnell's take is ... you picked this life, so deal with it. Still, the advice comes with a bit of love, and he has a suggestion on how Pete handle the heat, and turn it to his advantage. Check out the clip.

As Donnell puts it ... Pete's a lucky dude who was put on Earth to do just 2 things.

Even if Pete takes the advice ... pretty obvious he won't be putting into practice at Vinnie Brand's Stress Factory Comedy Club ... after this week's debacle.

Tamar is going through a divorce with estranged husband Vincent Herbert ... and according to new legal docs, obtained by TMZ, Tamar wants to be officially single, even if the court has not yet finalized the split of the former couple's assets. 

In the docs, Tamar says she believes, "there is nothing the Court can do to salvage or repair the marriage."

Nicolas Cage I'm Making 'Purple Rain' Mine Now!!! Can't Get Enough Karaoke

4/25/2019 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Something about "Purple Rain" speaks to Nicolas Cage's soul, because he hit up the same karaoke bar twice in 3 nights for 2 emotional renditions of Prince's hit ... which is now Nic's anthem.

We got this new vid of him pouring it all out on stage at what's clearly his favorite joint in L.A.'s Koreatown, and this time around it's way more over-the-top, angry and demonstrative than the first clip we got earlier this week. 

This performance went down last Friday, and you see Nic pacing around the room during what we'll graciously call ... his impassioned delivery of Prince's classic. We gotta say, he really went ALL out this time -- especially compared to his Sunday night gig.

Seems he toned it down a bit for the encore, but ya can't blame the guy for pouring his heart into the microphone ... he's going through some stuff. As we told you, Nicolas is trying to annul his recent quickie marriage of 4 days.

Some people pay $200/hr for a psychologist -- Nic prefers free karaoke therapy. Well, plus the cost of drinks, we're presuming.

Nic quickly soured on his new wife, Erika Koike, and filed for an annulment. He says they were bombed when they got hitched in Vegas and it was just the spur of the moment. There were signs the union was doomed ... Nic and Erika were fighting before AND after they tied the knot. 

Erika sees it another way ... she claims their marriage still counts and she wants his spousal support.

Nic and Erika didn't dance to "Purple Rain" on their wedding night -- as far as we know -- but he's sure singing the hell out of it now.

Wendy Williams Kevin Hunter's Totally Cut Off ... Process Started Weeks Ago

4/24/2019 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Wendy Williams is taking several steps -- professionally and personally -- to erase her estranged husband from her life, and she got the ball rolling even before serving him divorce papers.

Sources close to Wendy tell TMZ ... she's totally cut Kevin Hunter off from her money and has hired a team to ensure all of her finances are secure. We're told she's separated their funds and created new accounts ... a process that began before she filed for divorce.

Wendy's officially locked down her own place in Manhattan, as well. Our sources say she signed the lease on her new home a few weeks ago and has already paid rent for the next year.

She and Kevin previously lived together at their home in New Jersey. That's where that weird story went down in January ... when, as we told you, cops conducted a welfare check on Wendy.

As for business matters -- we're told Wendy waffled over whether to keep a professional relationship with Hunter, but ultimately decided to cut all ties. She's currently looking for a new manager.

Sources connected to Kevin tell us he hasn't received any money from the show following his departure. Not yet.

We're told he's known as a pretty savvy business guy, so show execs fully expect he'll insist on some kind of exit package.

As we reported ... Wendy talked about her new life on her show, shortly after her divorce filing. Obviously, Kevin is not part of her plans.
