Jesse Williams Seeks Joint Custody of Kids in Divorce

4/24/2017 4:37 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jesse Williams isn't looking for a fight over child custody in his divorce ... according to docs.

TMZ obtained the divorce petition filed by the "Grey's Anatomy" star on April 11, and he is requesting joint physical and legal custody of their 3-year-old and 1-year-old kids.

Jesse and Aryn Drakelee-Williams got married in 2012. The docs do not list a date of separation.

As for spousal support -- Jesse checked the box asking the court to deny her spousal support. That sometimes means the couple has a prenup ... but we're told that's not the case for Jesse and Aryn.

Marriott Hotels Robin Hood Confesses to Cyber Attack Public Made Out On My Revenge Plot

4/24/2017 5:27 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The Marriott Hotels 'Robin Hood' now admits he slashed his ex-employers' hotel rates -- to the delight of customers -- purely to get revenge for being unfairly fired ... he claims.

Juan Rodriguez tells TMZ he was happy to help consumers get cheap rates -- some as low as $10 per night -- but he was even happier to screw the assistant general manager who fired him for disappearing from his post at a Fairfield Inn & Suites for 90 minutes.

He claims other employees at the hotel told him the asst. GM was going to make up a story about Rodriguez renting rooms under the table, so he wouldn't be able to collect unemployment.

Rodriguez says that's when he hatched his plan to strike first. He says he connected remotely to Marriott's booking network with a company password that was still active -- and started slashing rates ... knowing his old bosses would have to fix it manually.

"I actually wanted them to work. I also wanted to teach them not to keep your password out there."

As we reported, Rodriguez was busted earlier this month and charged with computer tampering and computer trespass. He says he's confessed to cops, and his attorney is trying to get the charges reduced.

Chile Earthquake Little Hot Dog Runs for Life

4/24/2017 4:14 PM PDT
Breaking News

The moment a massive earthquake struck off the coast of Chile Monday an adorable little dog sprang into action ... running for his life.

The harrowing moment was captured on video by a guy in Valparaiso, Chile -- the 7.1 magnitude quake struck 22 miles off the coast of the port city. He was outside on his deck when the shaking hit and the pup, looks like a dachshund, started barking and sprinting.

The dog eventually makes it into the apartment and finds its owners. There are no immediate reports of damage or serious injuries.

They say dogs can supposedly sense when earthquakes are coming, so maybe the little guy was trying to warn everyone.

Stephen Belafonte Gets Visitation with His Daughter No Contact with Eddie Murphy's

Breaking News

Stephen Belafonte will get to see the daughter he had with Mel B, but under very strict terms laid out by a judge.

Belafonte and his attorneys were in court Monday trying to get unmonitored visitation with 5-year-old Madison. Mel B's restraining order requires him to stay away from her and all of her children.

The judge ruled he can see Madison, but it will be with a court monitor present -- and will take place in a pre-determined counseling center in Los Angeles. Belafonte must attend alone for the 4 hour visits, twice a week.

Belafonte lost his effort to regain contact with Angel -- Mel's daughter with Eddie Murphy, who was born right before Mel and Stephen got married. 

Aaron Hernandez Prison Cell Letters NOT for Gay Lover ... Attorney Insists

4/24/2017 2:37 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Letters were found inside Aaron Hernandez's cell when his body was found, but none of them were written to a gay lover.

Hernandez's lawyer, Jose Baez, tells TMZ Sports, "Rumors of letters to a gay lover, in or out of prison, are false. These are malicious leaks used to tarnish somebody who is dead."

The D.A. announced Thursday 3 letters were next to Hernandez's Bible, and that's when the rumors began.

Baez said he is not prepared to say whether Hernandez's death was suicide or foul play. He says, "There is still plenty we are investigating."

Mel B's Ex-Nanny I'm No Homewrecker ... Pics Prove Mel and I Were Girlfriends

4/24/2017 2:10 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Mel B's ex-nanny has dozens of photos to back her claim she wasn't just the hired help, and the singer seduced her into three-way sex with Stephen Belafonte.

We broke the story ... Lorraine Gilles filed a defamation lawsuit against Mel for saying Gilles got knocked up by Belafonte. Gilles insists Mel was totally in on and aware of the sexual escapades with Belafonte.

As part of her lawsuit, she submitted more than a couple dozen shots she says were taken during her 7 year relationship with Mel and Stephen. The pics certainly make it seem like she was tighter with the couple than your average nanny.

Then again, it's clearly much happier times. As we told you ... Mel admits they had three-ways, but insists Gilles and Belafonte had sex separately from her, and without her knowledge.

Mel B Claims Belafonte Produces Porn ... Keep Our Kids Away from Him

4/24/2017 11:14 AM PDT
Breaking News

Mel B says her estranged husband is involved in the porn industry, and that means he shouldn't be allowed to have unmonitored visitation with their kids.

Mel B's attorneys are in court fighting Stephen Belafonte's efforts to regain visitation rights. Mel currently has a restraining order which bans him from all contact with the kids.

In court, her counsel said there was "evidence" on multiple computers in the family home that indicates he's connected to porn, and possibly shooting it himself. They claim there's a paper trail on him renting spaces around L.A. to shoot porn.

The hearing is still in progress, but so far the judge is leaning toward awarding Stephen monitored visits with Madison, the daughter they have together. However, the judge is also denying Stephen's efforts to get any visitation with Angel ... Mel and Eddie Murphy's daughter.

12:15 PM PT -- Mel's attorneys claim Stephen had a friend, rapper True Life, staying with them in the family home, and although he served time for manslaughter ... Stephen let him sleep in Madison's bed. The children were not home at the time, but their point -- poor decision making by a parent.

Lady Gaga Crazy Cool Coachella Crib

4/24/2017 9:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

If you've ever wondered how Coachella headliners crash during the festival, Lady Gaga's $12 million Mediterranean desert rental gives you a good idea -- they crash just fine.

Gaga, who took over Beyonce's headlining slot, lived it up in a 7 bedroom 5 bath home in Rancho Mirage courtesy of Airbnb during the fest's back-to-back weekends. The place is huge ... 9,500 square feet! Kinda like having a full resort just for yourself.

Along with a pool and spa, the crib had a fitness room, 2 formal living rooms, an outdoor dining gazebo and 3 fire pits -- it gets cold in the desert at night.

If you thought $900 for a VIP ticket to the fest was stiff, Gaga's pad would set the average person back $10k per night!

Thank you @airbnb 🏠 for my desert home. A wonderful gift!
