Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images for The Steve Harvey Foundation(NEW JERSEY) -- Chris Rock's 20-year marriage with Malaak Compton is officially over.

According to TMZ, the two appeared before a New Jersey judge Monday to finalize their divorce.

Rock and Compton were married in 1996 and have two daughters together, Zahra, 12, and Lola, 14.

The pair, who separated in 2014, reportedly have a third child originally from South Africa, Ntombi, 8, who was never officially adopted but lived with Rock's family from the age of six months.

Although Chris has reportedly been in contact with his biological children, he's maintained that Ntombi is not his child.

James White/E! Entertainment(LOS ANGELES) -- In a vivid and candid memoir, lyricist Linda Thompson is opening up about her relationship with music icon Elvis Presley and, later, her marriage to the person now known as Caitlyn Jenner.

She also opens up about the “earth-shattering” moment when, she says, Jenner revealed a deeply held secret.

Thompson, 66, chatted with ABC News’ Chris Connelly about her book, A Little Thing Called Life.

"My happiness was complete until that day when Brody was 18 months old and Brandon was just about 3½,” she said, speaking of her sons with Jenner, “and my remarkable husband came to me one day and said, ‘I need to tell you something about myself.’”

Thompson said she feared Jenner was about to confess an affair.

“And he said, ‘I identify as a woman,’” she recalled. “He said, ‘I am a woman ... I would like to become female on the exterior, because I've always been female on the inside.’”

Thompson described her reaction at the time. “It was earth-shattering. It was devastating ...,” she said, adding, “People can't understand. ‘You must've had some kind of idea.’ No, nunca, nada, never, nothing.”

Therapy sessions would bring her greater understanding, she said.

“My deeper compassion was for Bruce ... for her to have felt so trapped in the wrong body, it broke my heart to think that he, that he had struggled so long and so hard,” Thompson said.

While she struggled to understand the idea that her husband was transgender, she says Jenner invited her to come to New York. She fully anticipated a romantic weekend, but when she knocked on the door, Thompson says, Jenner appeared dressed in women’s clothing.

Thompson was unprepared, and remembers that she “just crumbled."

“I think I even fell down in the hall ... I just went, ‘Oh, oh, no, no.’ And I just started crying,” she said.

Thompson says Jenner, now 66, was contrite.

“'I'm so sorry. I just thought it was very important that you see who I authentically am,’” she recalled Jenner’s saying to her. “Not until that moment, I guess, did it sink into my psyche that that truly was who Caitlyn felt that she was. And I had to respect that and honor that and move on with my life.”

The couple split in 1986. Thompson was Jenner’s second wife. Jenner married Kris Kardashian in 1991. They divorced in 2015.

After Jenner's publicly announced transition last year, Thompson -- a pageant standout who was Presley’s lover, confidant, confessor and caregiver for 4 1/2 years, after his split from his wife Priscilla -- was supportive.

"I think, more than anything, it's been a relief for Caitlyn to be able to emerge as her true self. And we love her ... But when I first met her she was in a Bruce Jenner body. He was just an incredible person. Still is,” she said.

She added: “I have since said to her, ‘You’ve got to give yourself credit. You know, you kicked manhood’s butt.’”

ABC News reached out to Jenner but she wasn’t available for comment.

Brian Bowen Smith/E! Entertainment(NEW YORK) -- Are the Kardashians illegally bombarding you with advertising? One group says yes, and wants something done about it.

The consumer watchdog group Truth in Advertising says the Keeping Up with the Kardashians clan is illegally advertising stuff on social media. It's documented over 100 Instagram posts that it says should have been marked sponsored or paid for.

It claims Kylie Jenner had the "most problem posts" among the family members.

It's given the family a week to take those posts down, or else it'll ask the Federal Trade Commission to open an investigation.

Since the Truth in Advertising letter to the family was posted, some of the offending Instagram pictures have been altered to make clear they are ads.

DANIEL LEAL-OLIVAS/AFP/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- No big surprise here, really -- Jennifer Lawrence is the highest-paid actress in Hollywood.

That’s according to Forbes, which says the Oscar-winner earned around $46 million before taxes in the last 12 months.  As for why it’s no surprise: Lawrence, who turned 26 last week, recently wrapped up her starring role in the blockbuster Hunger Games film franchise, of which she had a piece of the profits.  It also made her one of Hollywood’s most in-demand actresses, even though she made $6 million more last year.

Coming in a distant second is Ghostbusters star Melissa McCarthy, 45, who earned a nonetheless impressive $33 million, which Forbes notes is more than $10 million more than she made last year.  No small part of that, according to the magazine, is a reported eight-figure up-front fee she pocketed for Ghostbusters.

Two of the actresses in the top ten aren’t Hollywood stars: Chinese film superstar Fan Bingbing places fifth, and Indian Bollywood star Deepika Padukone takes the #10 spot.

Earnings are estimated based on paydays, endorsement deals and the like.  Here are the top ten highest-earning actresses, according to Forbes:

1) Jennifer Lawrence, $46 million
2) Melissa McCarthy, $33m
3) Scarlett Johansson, $25m
4) Jennifer Aniston, $21m
5) Fan Bingbing, Chinese film star, $17m
6) Charlize Theron, $16.5m
7) Amy Adams, $13.5m
8) Julia Roberts, 12m
9) Mila Kunis, $11m
10) Deepika Padukone, Bollywood star, $10m

Axelle/Bauer-Griffin/FilmMagic(LOS ANGELES) -- Shannen Doherty has reached a confidential settlement in her $15 million lawsuit against her ex-managers for allegedly mismanaging her health insurance, TMZ reports.

The Beverly Hills, 90210 star, who is being treated for breast cancer, sued an accounting firm last year for allegedly letting her health insurance policy lapse in 2014.

Doherty claimed she couldn't re-enroll until last year, and that her cancer would have been detected earlier had she'd been insured.

According to court documents obtained by the gossip website on Monday, both sides agreed to settle the matter late last week.

Angela Weiss/FilmMagic(NEW YORK) -- Ben Affleck turned 44 years old last Monday, and he celebrated with a family trip.

Ben, his estranged wife Jennifer Garner, 44, and their three children spent some quality time at a Montana resort, where, an insider tells People magazine, "The family spent the week together and enjoyed outdoor activities like hiking, biking and swimming."

The family has spent a lot of time together, including a recent trip to Europe while Affleck was shooting the upcoming film Justice League in London.

"Ben is happiest when he's spending time with his family," explains the source. "It was a great birthday."

The couple split after 10 years of marriage a little over a year ago.

Justice League -- co-starring Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot and Amber Heard -- is slated for a November 2017 release.

ABC/Rick Rowell(NEW YORK) -- No matter how hard she tries, Ashley Iaconetti just can't convince Jared Haibon to fall in love with her.

She continued to pine over Jared on Monday night's episode of Bachelor in Paradise, sobbing to him, "Nothing makes me happier than being with you."

Jared, who's involved on the show with Caila Quinn, could not have been more honest in his response. "I do care about you, but not romantically," he said.

The message still didn't get through to Ashley, not even when Jared gave his rose at the rose ceremony to Caila instead of her.

Ashley didn't get a rose from one of the other men, either, resulting in her elimination. However, she refused to go quietly into the night. As she was taken away by car, she asked the driver to stop. She headed back to paradise, hoping for another shot at love.

"I'm asking you guys right now if you'll let me come back and have a second chance with actually an open mind," she said.

The majority of the cast said yes, including Jared, though Caila felt a little uncomfortable with the whole situation.

Ashley didn't keep an open mind at all -- she was still plotting to win over Jared. She was encouraged when new arrival Brett Melnick -- who, you may recall, brought a lamp with him when he was introduced on Andi Dorfman's Bachelorette season -- invited Caila on a date. Caila couldn't make up her mind, changing her answer several times before finally agreeing to go out with Brett.

Ashley believed -- incorrectly, as it turned out -- that Caila was losing interest in Jared. But Caila realized she'd made a mistake while on a booze cruise with Brett, Brett's former Bachelorette co-star Carl King -- who'd also just been added to Paradise -- and Carl's date, Emily Ferguson.

When Caila returned from the date and resumed her romance with Jared, Ashley was heartbroken. "I'm watching my biggest nightmare: Jared falling for somebody else," she said, shedding more tears.

Ashley wasn't the only person who was looking for love in the wrong places. Sarah Herron had had some nice moments with Daniel Maguire earlier in the season, and on Monday night's episode she gave him a half-birthday cake. But he gave a rose to Emily's twin, Haley, instead of Sarah, and Sarah was forced to go home.

Haley was later invited on a date by Ryan Beckett, who came to Mexico after previously appearing on Kaitlyn Bristowe's season of The Bachelorette.

After his visit to the hospital, Evan Bass was on cloud nine after Carly Waddell said she was sorry about being wishy-washy about their relationship, and then committed to him with a make-out session. All it took, Evan admitted, was faking an injury.

Meanwhile, Grant Kemp turned up the heat in his romance with Lace Morris by telling her he loves her.

Things aren't look up for Vinny Ventiera, though. He was hurting when Isabel “Izzy” Goodkind told him she didn't feel 100-percent committed to him, simply because she'd found Brett to be attractive. Vinny hinted that a breakup might be forthcoming -- when the episode ended, he asked Izzy if they could talk.

Bachelor in Paradise continues Tuesday night at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

JoJo Fletcher offers the final rose to Jordan Rodgers; ABC/Matt Klitscher(LOS ANGELES) -- Despite the recent drama with Jordan Rodgers' ex-girlfriend, he and “Bachelorette” partner JoJo Fletcher celebrated their engagement with family and friends this past weekend.

Fletcher shared a photo of the happy couple with family and friends Sunday and wrote that the party was actually a surprise.

"My heart is so full!" Fletcher, 25, captioned the snap. "Jordan and I were going out to what we thought was just a little dinner with friends but instead walked into a room full of both our friends and family to celebrate in our engagement. We are so incredibly blessed. #fletchersmeettherodgers."

Rodgers, 27, also posted a photo from the celebration with the same hashtag. Along with the mirror selfie with his brother Luke, Fletcher's fiancé wrote, "When you think you are just going to dinner with your fiancé and a few friends and you walk into a room full of both your families and best friends! So blessed to not only have found the love of my life @joelle_fletcher, but have an amazing family and new family to share a life with. So blessed to do life with these people! #fletchersmeettherodgers."

The couple recently faced some social media drama after Rodgers' ex-girlfriend, Brittany Farrar, took to Instagram and once again accused her former boyfriend of infidelity during their relationship in a lengthy, two-part post. This is not the first time Farrar has made such accusations, which Rodgers has repeatedly denied.

ABC/Greg Gayne(LOS ANGELES) -- Marvel director James Gunn is responding to the race controversy surrounding Zendaya's rumored role as Peter Parker love interest Mary Jane Watson in Spider-Man: Homecoming, after some on social media attacked the idea that MJ, a white character in the comics, could be played by a person of color.

In a lengthy Facebook post, Gunn -- who directed the Marvel mega-hit Guardians of the Galaxy and its sequel -- writes in part, "I do not believe a character is the color of his or her skin. When Michael B Jordan was cast as Johnny Storm I didn't understand the uproar," he writes, referring to the recent Fantastic Four movie reboot.

While being careful to neither confirm nor deny Zendaya's casting as Mary Jane, Gunn goes on, "For me, if a character's primary attribute -- the thing that makes them iconic -- is the color of their skin, or their hair color, frankly, that character is shallow and sucks.  For me, what makes MJ MJ is her alpha female playfulness, and if the actress captures that, then she'll work. And, for the record, I think Zendaya even matches what I think of as MJ's primary physical characteristics -- she's a tall, thin model -- much more so than actresses have in the past."

Zendaya, who was initially, officially, said to play a character named "Michelle,"  has yet to publicly respond to the discussion.

Starring Tom Holland as the web-slinger, Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man, Marisa Tomei as Aunt May and Michael Keaton as the villain the Vulture, Spider-Man: Homecoming hits theaters July 7, 2017 from Marvel Studios, which is owned by Disney, the parent company of ABC News.

The Chosunilbo JNS/Multi-Bits via Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Tom Cruise's next Mission has hit a snag.

Paramount Pictures has halted preproduction of M:I6 Mission: Impossible, Deadline reports, affecting early work on the design of visual effects for the sequel in London.

There are a couple of rumors regarding the reason why the decision was made. Deadline notes that Cruise may want the studio to at least match what he's making for Universal's upcoming reboot of The Mummy franchise.

The other possible reason, the website states, is that Paramount wants Cruise and other producers to reduce their fees.

Whatever the case may be, Deadline speculates that the issue isn't a serious one in the short term, since the script is not finished, production is not scheduled to begin until January, and Cruise is currently working on The Mummy.

M:I6 Mission: Impossible does not yet have a release date.

L-R: Bob Newhart and Jack Riley in 2007; Michael Buckner/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- To fans of a certain generation, he was best-known as Elliot Carlin, Dr. Bob Hartley's neurotic patient on the 1970s hit sitcom The Bob Newhart Show.  Actor Jack Riley, whose career spanned some five decades, died Friday in Los Angeles of complications from pneumonia.  He was 80.

Riley was better known to younger generations as the voice of Stu Pickles in the animated kids' show Rugrats.  He had hundreds of TV, film and voiceover roles during his career, including TV series like Seinfeld and Night Court, and the Mel Brooks movies History of the World: Part I, High Anxiety and Spaceballs.

Riley's final listed credit was from 2011, according to IMDB, a voiceover part on the animated The Garfield Show.

Kevin Mazur/WireImage(CONCORD, NC) -- A North Carolina couple bought what they believe is an autographed Michael Jackson Bad cassette tape for 25 cents at a local thrift shop.

Amber and Michael Hernon, of Concord, were stunned when they spotted what they think is the singer’s signature inside the cover.

"At first when I opened it, I couldn't say anything. Just went blank,” Amber told ABC News of their discovery at Heavenly Treasures, a consignment shop they frequent. “Then I told Michael it was signed, and gauging my reaction, he knew I was serious.”

They first noticed the autograph after opening up the cassette’s cover to show pictures of Jackson’s dance moves to Amber’s 10-year-old son, who is a huge fan.

Although the signature looks identical to the King of Pop’s based on what they’ve seen on the Internet, the couple doesn’t “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin’," so they’d get it authenticated if they ever plan to sell -- which isn't likely.

"If we were going to sell it, we would get the proof that it's real," Amber explained. "We have no intentions of selling it. We just think it's a great story for our children and future grandchildren."
