Costly split

Ewan McGregor to split royalties from 'Star Wars,' other movies with ex

Ewan McGregor's divorce from his ex-wife has finally settled, but it's costing him a pretty penny… a whole lot of pennies, actually. 

According to the divorce judgment obtained by TMZ, Ewan and Eve Mavrakis have agreed to evenly split his royalties from the "Star Wars" movies in which he appeared.

She's also getting half of the royalties from the movies he acted in during the course of their 22-year marriage, which include massive moneymakers "Angels & Demons," "Moulin Rouge" and others.

It's not publicly known if Ewan made a cut of the profits from his movies, but it would not be uncommon if he did.

TMZ notes that Ewan did score one significant victory in the settlement, as he gets to keep 30 (30!) vehicles that he owns. 

Eve, though, seems to have made out quite well. In addition to the movie royalties, she will keep a $6.62 million home in Los Angeles, as well as jewelry, a few bank accounts and five vehicles. Ewan, who filed for divorce in January 2018, will also need to cut her a check for more than half a million dollars to even out the split of assets.

As Ewan and Eve share custody of a 9-year-old daughter, court documents require him to pay her nearly $15,000 a month in child support and nearly $36,000 a month in spousal support. She will get more money if Ewan makes more than usual in a given year.


Peter Fonda's widow sues hospital over his death

Peter Fonda's widow has filed a lawsuit against the hospital that treated the late actor.

In court documents obtained by TMZ, Margaret Fonda claims doctors at Providence Saint Joseph's Health Center in Santa Monica, California, were negligent in their jobs and failed to properly consult, diagnose and treat Peter. All of these things were factors in his death, she says.

Margaret names the hospital and several doctors in her lawsuit.

Peter passed away on Aug. 16, 2019, due to lung cancer. He was 79.

Margaret argues that her movie star husband had a lot of years ahead of him, but medical professionals at the hospital didn't order the appropriate tests and didn't properly advise him to do follow-up tests. She believes that the recommendation that Peter seek treatment from other specialists was a failure.

She is suing for damages.


Prior to his death, the "Easy Rider" star had been in and out of the hospital. 

"I am very sad," his sister Jane Fonda wrote after the passing. "He was my sweet-hearted baby brother. The talker of the family. I have had beautiful alone time with him these last days. He went out laughing." 

Run club

Co-star: Tom Cruise forbids anyone from running on-screen with him

Tom Cruise runs the show when it comes to his movies. 

Granted, Tom's films have a producer and a director, but the action star has a huge say in what happens. He even has his own rules for who can run on-screen with him — or rather, who can't!

In a chat with The Hollywood Reporter, Annabelle Wallis, who starred opposite the global movie star in 2017's "The Mummy," said Tom won't let anyone run on-screen with him.

"I got to run on-screen with him, but he told me no at first. He said, 'Nobody runs on-screen [with me],' and I said, 'But I'm a really good runner,'" she explained. "So, I would time my treadmill so that he'd walk in and see me run. And then he added all these running scenes. So, that was it."

For Annabelle, that was a huge win. 

"It was, like, better than an Oscar," she said. "I was so happy! I was so happy that I got to run on-screen with Tom Cruise."

Tom's penchant for doing his own stunts — many of which take place while he's running — is legendary. For "Mission: Impossible — Fallout" he performed a high-altitude low-opening (or HALO) jump from a plane. In 2015's "Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation" he actually hung outside an airplane in mid-flight.

Soon, he'll tackle an unearthly project. In May, NASA and SpaceX announced that they're working with the movie star on a film aboard the International Space Station.

Considering the size, it's likely that no running is allowed in the ISS.

New house

Home $weet home!

TMZ reports the couple purchased the 14,700-square-foot waterfront home on Star Island in Miami Beach, which his home to a slew of big-name celebrities and business tycoons. 

The estate, which sits on a 40,000-square-foot lot, is stunning. says the home has 10 bedrooms and 10 and a half bathrooms. It includes an industrial-style chef's kitchen, a library, a wine cellar and an elevator (pictures of the home can be seen here).

The backyard includes an expansive swimming pool, a covered bar and a private dock with Atlantic Ocean access. 

As expected, the home also offers spectacular views of the Miami skyline.

TMZ notes that the couple already owns a massive home in Miami's Coral Gables neighborhood, so they could be using the estate as more of an investment property.


The couple has gotten more involved in real estate lately. They recently flipped a home in Malibu, California, after working with Chip and Joanna Gaines to remodel it. The superstar couple is still, of course, also trying to buy the New York Mets baseball team. As of last report, their investment group had put forth a $1.7 billion offer. J-Rod would reportedly invest $225 million to $300 million of their own money.

Reflection time

Bo Derek, 63, reflects on being a pin-up icon

Bo Derek can't believe one iconic scene from more than 40 years ago is still so memorable.

"It was one of those moments where a fairy godmother comes in, taps you on the forehead with her magic wand and changes everything," she told Fox News.

Bo dropped jaws when she ran across the beach in a gold swimsuit in 1979's "10." She was immortalized after the movie came out, and posters of her were hung on walls all over the world.

"People say I'm an icon, whatever that means. I wouldn't call myself that," she said while reflecting on that moment in time. "I don't take it personally. But I played a part that certainly became iconic for sure."

Since then, Bo, 63, has procured an impressive résumé in Hollywood.

"I'm grateful for the life I was given," she said. "I feel very good about the decisions I've made. They weren't always the most successful business decisions as far as money in the bank, but I had a blast making films and having my career on my own terms. And that business has been very good to me. And it has opened so many doors for me."

Along the way the actress met John Corbett and they began dating, a romance that blossomed after her first husband, John Derek, passed away of congestive heart failure in 1998 at the age of 71. 

"I didn't expect to end up with anyone again," Bo said. "Some women want to pair up again right away. I didn't. I remember consciously fashioning myself after some girlfriends that I have [who] are single and led very full, fantastic lives with friends and family and projects that they do. And that gave them happiness."

Bo and John have now been together for nearly 20 years.


"It was just an attraction, a comfort," she said of meeting the "Sex and the City" star in 2003. "He makes me laugh all the time. He's full of life, full of joy. I became attracted to him and I still am. We take things day by day and I think we are still there."

Despite their two-decade romance, the couple has no plans to marry.

"I think when you're beginning a young family and you're going to have children and set up this new family tree branch, it's obviously a wonderful commitment and it's meaningful," Bo said. "But for us in our lives, it hasn't been yet."

Dating rumors

For much of the month, the rapper has fueled romance rumors with Korean rapper MeLoveMeAlot, who's posted several photos with him on social media.

On Aug. 3, MeLoveMeAlot, who's never publicly disclosed her real name, posted a slideshow of photos with Post, several of which show the duo cuddled up together. In one of the snaps, the "Circles" rapper appeared to be wearing eyeliner. 

"I did makeup on cutest face," MeLoveMeAlot wrote alongside the series of photos. 

The following day, she shared more images with Post.

Earlier this week, she seemed to confirm the romance rumors, posting even more images with Post, including a drawing of herself and the rapper in anime form. Another photo showed them cuddled up on a couch. 

"All I want is him to be happy and i like to be in love," she captioned the slideshow. She also noted that she's "just a girl fall in love with your rockstar."

While MeLoveMeAlot is a rapper, she's also a visual artist and has quite a large following on TikTok and Instagram.

"Growing up, I was super lonely and [art] became a way of entertaining myself," she told VogueWorld in 2018. "Since then, I've always been into creating something, whether it's with computers, paint, pencils, or clay."

Judging from her Instagram, she isn't shy about using her own body as a canvas.

"I thought it was a great way to make as many people as uncomfortable as possible," she told VogueWorld. "I feel nowadays, no one pays much attention to real art, they skim by it in their feeds. But when you scroll by one of my videos, it's difficult to look away."

This would be Post's first public romance since he dated Ashlen Diaz from 2015 to 2018.


Teddi Mellencamp turns off Instagram comments after getting death wishes

"The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Teddi Mellencamp is hitting back at trolls for leaving hateful and vile comments on her Instagram.


On Aug. 13, the reality TV star noted that she had to disable comments from a previous post after people wished death upon her and her family.

"Hey guys, I just wanted to record a quick message here for a second. So I'm sure some of you've noticed that I had to delete commenting off my last post, and there's something I wanted to say about that," she said in a makeup-free video. "I have always loved doing 'Real Housewives' – the good, the bad and the ugly – because I know it's an escape for so many people watching. I know when I watch 'Potomac,' I am laughing, I am loving it, I am picking my favorites — all of those things that you're supposed to do on these television shows."

She continued, "But what's happening right now is taking it to the next level. I had so many comments on my last post saying they wish I was dead, wishing harmful things on my children, and that's really where like enough is enough. You guys tune in for drama, then enjoy the drama, but coming after people you do not know and wishing they die has gotta stop."

Teddi's comments came after a fiery episode in which the "Housewives" vacationed in Rome and questioned Denise Richards about her alleged affair with Brandi Glanville. Prior to the episode, Teddi had teased on Instagram that it was a "good one."

After the episode aired and she saw her social media account, she was less enthusiastic.

"You don't always have to agree with me. You don't even have to like me but wishing someone would die is taking it to the next level," she wrote on Instagram, essentially echoing what she said in the adjacent video. "Please watch the show. Enjoy it. It's entertainment and our lives can be crazy! Pick your faves and your villains, laugh, cry, relate etc but wishing death on another human is just wrong on so many levels. I hope those that follow me or those that just come on to troll can understand and respect that this needs to stop."

Pool problem

Anthony Michael Hall apologizes for hotel pool tirade

Anthony Michael Hall is apologizing for an expletive-filled tirade that was caught on tape.

According to TMZ, the trouble started while the popular '80s movie star was hanging out at the South Congress Hotel pool in Austin, Texas, on Aug. 12. Witnesses claim he was blaring music loudly from a portable speaker he'd toted along. Guests also said he was being belligerent toward everyone in sight.

Eventually, other hotel guests asked him to cool it. That completely set him off, however, and he began shouting (in very colorful language) at other pool guests and calling them "disrespectful."

TMZ's video of the incident, which picks up in the middle of the tirade, shows Anthony cursing and splashing water in the direction of the person filming, whom he refers to as "Rosie O'Donnell."

Toward the end of the video, you can see one of Anthony's friends urging him to get out of the pool to diffuse the situation.

The former star of "The Breakfast Club" is now taking responsibility for the fracas.

"As a result of a misunderstanding and miscommunication between myself and some hotel guests, the situation needlessly and regrettably escalated," he said. "I am deeply sorry for my words and actions and ask for forgiveness from anyone who I may have offended."

TMZ reports police were not called, but hotel security responded to the incident, which resulted in Anthony leaving the pool area. 

Lawsuit denial

Is Nick Cannon planning a $1.5 billion lawsuit over 'Wild 'N Out' rights?

A smattering of reports this week have claimed that Nick Cannon is planning to file a $1.5 billion lawsuit against ViacomCBS for the rights to "Wild 'N Out," an MTV show he created. 

TMZ claims those reports are blatantly false.

Nick was fired by ViacomCBS — which owns MTV — on July 14 after he made controversial comments on his podcast that were widely viewed as vile and anti-Semitic. While speaking on his podcast, "Cannon's Class," Nick called white people "savages" and "barbaric." Following the comments, ViacomCBS said Nick had been dropped. 

Nick soon lashed out at ViacomCBS and demanded an apology, which he never got. 

Now, his team tells TMZ that Nick is focused elsewhere and has no plans to battle the media conglomerate in court over "Wild 'N Out," the long-running improv comedy series.

"Nick is focusing on bringing people together and fighting bigotry, racism and hate," TMZ said, citing Nick's rep, adding "a huge payday is the last thing on his mind."

At the time of his firing, Nick argued that ViacomCBS was trying to "make an example of an outspoken Black man." He maintained that the company was on "the wrong side of history."

He later sent out some cryptic tweets and disturbingly listed his location as "Heaven."

Nick would later issue an apology for his comments, which reportedly saved his job as host of Fox's "The Masked Singer."
