It’s been only six months or so since Child Protective Services took away their two-year-old daughter but according to TMZ Ebony and Joshua Rendon from 16 and Pregnant are — wait for it — pregnant AGAIN.
Joshua told TMZ that although the pregnancy was unexpected, they’re still excited for the baby. Ebony is currently 10 weeks pregnant.
The couple was arrested in September after the Department of Human Services raided their home in Arkansas and found feces, flies and maggots all over the place. They also found marijuana and drug paraphernalia around the house. They were charged with: endangering the welfare of a minor, possession of drug paraphernalia, maintaining a drug premise and unauthorized use of another’s property to facilitate a crime (you can take a breath now).
TMZ says they still don’t have custody of their daughter Jocelyn and they only see her during supervised visits. Ebony also entered rehab in November to get psychological help for having suicidal thoughts. Do you think they’ll be able to pull it together before their second is born?
16 & Pregnant stars Josh Rendon and Ebony Jackson had their daughter taken away after Arkansas investigators deemed their house not fit for a child.
Somebody complained to the Department of Human Services about the living conditions. According to their report which was obtained by TMZ, “Every room inside the residence had human and dog feces on the floors, walls, and clothing.”
DHS took their daughter, and animal control stepped in to rescue the dogs.
The report continues, “The house was full of flies and in some areas, maggots” — and police claim they also found evidence of “synthetic marijuana.”
Charlie Sheen has lost his custody battle against estranged wife Brooke Mueller.
The actor, who was hoping to win primary legal and physical custody of their two-year-old twins Bob and Max after Mueller refused to take a drug test last Friday and entered rehab. His plea was rejected.
Mueller, who was in court, seemed “unsteady on her feet”and “glassy-ed” at the hearing but smiled as she left, according to RadarOnline.com.
Sheen on the other hand, had no comment.
While on tour with his “The Violent Torpedo of Truth” show, Sheen reportedly left after his stop at Connecticut last night to be in L.A. for the hearing this morning to ask a judge for full custody of his sons, and possibly take them on tour with him for the final two weeks of his show.
It was said that Mueller refused a drug test last week, which was required as part of her custody settlement with Sheen. According to TMZ.com, video footage was caught of her hocking items in a pawn shop, generating rumours of a relapse. She later checked into rehab.
Sheen first learned of the news about Mueller during his second show in Toronto. Halfway through his performance , comedian Russell Peters (who co-hosted the Toronto gigs), read the report from TMZ about Mueller refusing a drug test, which the former Two and a Half Men star took to mean that he would be regaining custody of his children.
“I’m in Toronto and I get the best news of my life,” he said.
But seeing that Sheen has lost his custody battle, the actor certainly hasn’t been “winning” lately. His entourage also took a hit as one of his goddesses, porn star Bree Olson, decided to leave the tour, and return to her home in Indiana.
We don’t think anybody could call this a surprise – Brooke Mueller is back in rehab reports TMZ. After trying to pawn some items in Inglewood, CA last week, and refusing a drug test as part of her custody settlement with Charlie Sheen, Brooke has decided to get some help.
Sheen’s lawyers are going to court Tuesday to fight this issue, saying Brooke’s rehab stint is a stall tactic.
Whoever wins the custody of the kids probably will just be the lesser of two evils, and not necessarily a qualified parent. We think custody should go to Martin Sheen. He seems like a cool guy and he did a great job with Emilio Estevez.
Nicolas Cage was arrested earlier this morning in New Orleans for alleged domestic abuse, reports Perez Hilton.
He was booked by the police at 6:33 am on one count of domestic abuse and one count of disturbing the peace. He is apparently still in custody.
According to sources, Cage was spotted violently shouting at his wife Alice early this morning on the streets of the Big Easy. The police were called by a passing cab driver, who additionally saw Cage push Alice into the street.
When the police arrived, it was clear that Cage was “very drunk,” but the cops were willing to let the incident slide, so long as he and Alice just went home. That’s when Cage allegedly dared the cops to arrest him and his behavior was disrespectful enough that the cops obliged him. He was carted off and charged with domestic abuse and disturbing the peace.
The Oscar winner faces $10,000 bond for the abuse charge and $1,000 for disturbing the peace. He’s tentatively scheduled to appear back in court May 31, though as it stands, no stay-away order has been issued.
He’s always been sort of a weird guy, so this news isn’t anything new. His mugshot definitely shows that he wasn’t in the right state of mind – some people just don’t agree with alcahol. Celebrities believe they are above the law, which is ridiculous, so I’m glad he got some repercussions for his actions.
TMZ reports Mueller was in a pawn shop in Inglewood, CA trying to pawn an expensive radio and a men’s watch. Unfortunately a store employee reports they couldn’t do the deal as Mueller couldn’t produce ID.
So its a pretty safe bet that Brooke has probably fallen of the wagon. Luckily sources say Brooke’s mother is caring for the twins.
Can you imagine having your mother as Brooke Mueller, and your father as Charlie Sheen? With the exception of having a great hookup for cocaine, these kids are screwed.
It looks like the ghost of scorned women past is haunting Jesse James, and we couldn’t think of anybody who deserves it more!
James’ ex and mother of his daughter Sunny, Janine Lindermulder, was released from jail this weekend and used her first free breath to condemn Jesse’s parenting skills.
“Jesse James does not want me to see Sunny and intentionally ambushed me so that I would go to jail,” claims Lindermulder, who was arrested Saturday after allegedly harassing Jesse with phone calls. “Jesse does not give me ways or any means to contact my daughter…there have been times where I have not spoken to my daughter in forty days.”
But it gets worse! Apparently Sunny was hospitalized late last year and the information never got passed along to Lindermulder. “[Sunny had] a life threatening infection and I didn’t know. That’s not good parenting,” she says.
Though Lindermulder’s claims have not been verified, we wouldn’t be surprised. Jesse James doesn’t have the best track record in the “being a good human being” department.
Bristol Palin recently purchased a $172k home in Arizona, with the intention of moving there permanently with her son. However in order to do, she needs approval from the son’s father, Levi Johnston, and he has yet given the OK.
A rep for Levi tells TMZ … Johnston is “aware” Bristol purchased a $172k home in AZ … but the two have not had any discussions about relocating 2-year-old Tripp.
A rep also says “Levi is not at all upset that Bristol is going to Arizona” … adding, “After the holidays, Levi and Bristol will get together and discuss plans for Tripp.”
One of the major issues is who will pay the travel bill for Levi to fly to AZ to visit his son. As we all know Levi is a deadbeat who doesn’t have 2 cents to his name.
If Mel Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva keep it up, their baby, Lucia, is going to have the worst childhood.
As the custody battle and various other court proceedings are still underway, when it comes to give and take, there’s not much give.
TMZ reports that Gibson won’t be seeing Lucia on her birthday on Saturday, as the court has agreed with Oksana’s camp.
Gibson has Lucia today and is required to deliver her back to Oksana tonight, however the Gibson’s nanny who usually does the driving back and forth is sick—which prompted Gibson to ask the judge for an overnight visit in order to avoid any trouble.
Problem for Gibson is, Oksana knows that he also has another nanny who is very capable of doing the job, so when she demanded that Lucia be brought back to her tonight, the court kept things to-the-book. As per their current custody agreement, the court decided that Gibson will have to bring the baby back later this evening.
I bet Lucia already can’t wait to be the age of majority.
Radar Online is reporting that Tiger Woods has paid his ex-wife Elin Nordegren approximately $110 million in divorce payouts.
The ever-classy Nordegren has refused to flaunt her settlement money. Though she’s quite clearly rolling in it, Elin’s only major shopping trip of recent history seems to be a quick house-hunting jaunt in Florida to be close to Tiger and to ease the joint custody of their children.
“Tiger was worried Elin was going to move back to Sweden and take their children,” an unnamed source said.”That was a bigger hang up than money. Making sure he had access to Sam and Alexis was crucial for Tiger.”
And that might not be the end of Elin’s payout! Because Tiger is worth roughly $500 million in total, She could be entitled to another $100 million in cash and assets.
After banging half of the world’s trashy hooker population, we think Woods got what was coming to him.
TMZ reports the couple’s agreement allows for Bristol to have primary physical custody of the child. Levi will have visitation rights from 9:00 AM and 4:00 PM on Saturdays and 12:00 PM and 6:00 PM on Wednesdays.
Interestingly, part of the agreement requires both parents not to “speak badly about the other parent in front of the child … or allow anyone else to speak badly about the other parent or members of their family in front of the child.”
TMZ reports that the couple have reached a settlement agreement, however the terms are sealed by the court. A source familiar with the situation says “An official agreement between Jon and Kate has been reached and they will be working together for the benefit of their children.”
In April Jon requested primary custody of the children and lessened child support obligations. However because of the confidential terms of the agreement, we aren’t sure the type of deal he was able to work out.
TMZ reports that although the divorce is not settled, Elin will have a lot of flexibility in where she decides to settle with the kids.
Additionally, rumors have it that as part of the settlement, Elin will get around $100 Million.
TMZ reports that Janine gave up custody of their daughter Sunny James after being imprisoned for tax evasion in 2009.
As she can’t afford the legal bills, Janine has filed documents in Orange County, CA to ask a Judge to make Jesse cover her legal costs. She is seeking a 50-50 split in custody.
The “Survivor” producer first order of business is gaining custody of his children, reports TMZ. His lawyer Richard Hirsch, says that since his client has not been accused of a crime, he has a legal right to custody of his children.
Beresford-Redman’s parents currently have temporary guardianship of his two children.
TMZ says the major issues yet to be resolved are child custody and the division of assets. Both parties have been advised to keep their final deal confidential and keep the property settlements out of the court file.
Both Tiger and Elin have their own team of high priced lawyers working on their behalf. An immediate matter they are trying to address is jurisdiction. Although the couple lived in Florida, Elin will be moving back to Sweden. Consequently it maybe easier to move forward with the proceedings in Sweden.
Richards and Sheen have two kids, 6 year old Sam and 4 year old Lola. TMZ reports that Richards and Sheen signed this agreement two weeks ago which gives Richards full custody. Prior to this new arrangement, both parents had joint custody.
Richards initially started this process after Charlie was arrested on Christmas Day. Sheen has been charged with felony menacing and misdemeanor assault, but the actor’s lawyers are said to be working on a plea deal.
E! Online reports that after 5 years of being together, actress Halle Berry and model Gabriel Aubrey have called it quits.
The reason for the break? Radar Online reports that a source close to the situation says Aubry was the one who ended it for reasons that include the 9 year age difference between the two. You shouldn’t expect Catwoman to be upset and go on the prowl though; Berry and Aubry have reportedly been working respectfully with their lawyers to iron out the agreements for the past few months.
Though they were never married, the pair shared five years as a couple and even has a two-year-old daughter, Nahla, together.
Although no permanent custody agreement has been put together yet, Halle and Gabriel have worked out several short-term arrangements for their young daughter. As far as the finances go, Radar Online reports that Gabriel was fine with not taking a dime from Halle—making around $700,000 per year himself, he doesn’t really need the extra cash.
Both of them seem to be working at a fair agreement and understand where the other is coming from—Aubry just lost the flame and they weren’t able to see eye-to-eye when it came to love.
If you aren’t familiar with Aubry’s work, the Canadian-born model is one of the highest paid in the business. His impressive portfolio includes the likes of modeling for Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, and Hugo Boss.
With their combined talent and good looks it is no surprise that Halle and Gabriel met on the set of an advertisement for Versace, an Italian fashion line, in 2005. They quickly hit it off and seemed to be on the same page when it came to marriage.
E! Online reports that Halle told Harper’s Bazaar one year ago that she never wanted to tie the knot again. “I’m done,” she said. The actress was fed up with marriage after two attempts. E! Online reports that Halle told Harper’s Bazaar she was delighted to have found someone “who feels done, too.”
With Halle’s previous men, things had not gone very smoothly. The Oscar winning actress’ first marriage to baseball player David Justice was broken up after four years in 1997—reports accused Justice of abuse and Halle was said to have had thoughts of suicide, reports E! Online. The star’s second husband, singer Eric Benét, lasted four years but their marriage ended after information surfaced about him cheating.
We’re sorry for the breakup, but friends, two good looking people just hit the market!
So here’s the most recent Jon and Kate Gosselin update. Jon has fired his attorney and he tweeted about it this morning.
“Kate, her attorneys and I are moving forward to work out things privately and amicably.”
And, as for his ex-legal representative? “Mr. Anthony List Sr., Esq., is not my representing attorney; I terminated him on April 15, 2010. He has no legal right to speak to the press or anyone on my behalf.”
List was apparently a long time friend of Jon’s father, reports PEOPLE. List promised Jon’s father before his death that he would help Jon.
A source close to the family tells Us Weekly, “It’s 100 percent happening … It’s going to take a long time to go through. [But] she will go through with it. She is all about being a mom. She will do it slowly and carefully.”
Elin has also moved full stream ahead with the construction of her new house in Sweden. “She is definitely planning on spending a lot of time there — they are gutting it … She and the kids are going to be spending most of the summer there. Without Tiger.”
However Elin will be looking at properties in Florida as well as Tiger will not let the kids leave the U.S. full time, reports PopEater. “No way would Tiger let Elin leave the USA with his children. You can say whatever you want about Tiger as a husband, but he has always been a great father. He knows his marriage is probably over, but he will never give up on those kids. They mean the world to him.”
