Melanie Griffith thinks she’s a better parent than Antonio Banderas — a dog parent, that is — and she’s dead set on getting custody of their three dogs in the divorce … TMZ has learned.
As TMZ first reported, Griffith filed for divorce on June 6 after 18 years of marriage to Banderas.
Child custody won’t be an issue — their daughter turns 18 in September — but sources close to Griffith tell TMZ she is angling for custody of their three dogs. The former couple has one terrier mix and two shepherd lab mixes they adopted last February. Continue reading…

Zoe McClellan says she just learned a hard lesson about success … sometimes your ex will come after you with a vengeance, especially when money is on the line.
Zoe just signed on as the new star of “NCIS: New Orleans.” According to legal docs — obtained by TMZ — she’ll be raking in $45K an episode.
Zoe’s hubby, J.P. Gillain — a struggling actor — just filed for divorce, and she doesn’t think it’s coincidental. J.P. is asking for joint custody, and she suggests a motivating factor is that he wants child support.
Zoe is also incredulous … because she goes on and on in the docs saying J.P. has never been a hands-on dad, to the point where he doesn’t know how to put their 18-month-old Sebastian to sleep. Continue reading…

Using Bitcoin To Hide Assets In Divorce
There are a variety of ways to hide your assets when going through a divorce. The most recent and most high-tech way involves using bitcoin. It’s important to know about these methods to protect yourself from a less that honest soon-to-be ex-spouse.

I recently wrote an article about how to hide assets from your spouse during a divorce, but those gimmicks were so 2014. (Oh wait, it’s still 2014.) In any case, there is a high-tech way to hide assets that I didn’t mention earlier. But neither this article nor that one are “how to” columns. Rather, they are pleas for you to make sure your spouse (or your soon-to-be ex) isn’t engaged in financial trickery. I have seen all too often cases in which one spouse is less than forthright about disclosing income and assets.
The newest high-tech way to hide assets in a divorce is by using Bitcoin, a digital currency that doesn’t depend on banks or governments, and allows its holders to remain anonymous. I haven’t seen people using Bitcoins to conceal assets yet in my divorce financial planning practice, but I fear I will soon. Continue reading…
