I can hear this picture, it sounds like an L.A.-by-way-of- Leeds accent, and it says: “He wants WOT?”
Earlier this month, we learned that Mel B and Stephen Belafonte had finally settled their divorce. Stephen’s getting $20,000 a month, which includes $5,000 for child support of their 6-year-old daughter Madison Belafonte, and $15,000 in spousal support for himself. Mel B and Stephen had also reportedly agreed to share custody of Madison. Stephen may be ok with the money, but not the custody. TMZ says that Stephen appeared in court today, claiming Mel isn’t fit to care for her three daughters, because she’s drunk all the time. Here we go again.
According to Page Six, if Angelina Jolie had her druthers, the child army would be grabbing their Europe summer bags (they probably have pre-packed luggage for every season and continent at the ready) and headed to London to be with her while she films Maleficent 2. But no matter how many withering sighs (band name alert!) she utters, Angie can’t get around the rules of her ongoing custody battle with William Bradley Pitt. Us Weekly reports that Brad purposefully chose projects filming in Los Angeles and rearranged his summer schedule just so he can spend time with the kids.
The custody battle between Jennifer Hudson and her ex-fiance David Otunga is taking a sharp turn into Sticks and Stones Land with Jennifer’s recent claim that David does nothing but lie around the house all day watching old wrestling matches on YouTube in his drawls. In other words; He needs to get a damn job, like, NOW!
Jesse Williams has run afoul of his estranged wife Aryn Drake-Lee once again. TMZ reports that Aryn has lodged a complaint that states Jesse is in violation of the couple’s custody agreement. Last time, Jesse was the one complaining about Aryn not let letting him see the kids over Christmas. Now Aryn is saying that Jesse has violated the agreement by introducing the kids to his new lady friend (NOT MINKA!). And for doing birthday cupcakes all wrong.
The Jackson family’s collection of lawyers might not want to plan any holidays in the next couple of months – er, you know what? Better make it years. Because Janet Jackson is currently on what could potentially be a terrible mess of a custody journey with her estranged husband Wissam Al Mana.
Jesse Williams’ split from his non-famous wife of almost five years (and partner for more than ten) Aryn Drake-Lee started messy and it’s staying messy. Jesse was rumored to have ended his marriage, which began when Jesse was still a struggling actor, by going full Hollywood and hooking up with Minka Kelly (a rumor he tried to brush off with little success). E! News says we’ve entered the custody battle part of this textbook messy Hollywood breakup.
