The reality stars were initially given temporary guardianship back in August, when they filed an emergency petition claiming the eight-year-old's mother, Rachel Hutchins, was unfit to raise him.

The newly-obtained court docs reveal that guardianship officially became permanent on November 21.

The famous family's attorney, Travis Story, said in the papers that the 23-year-old mother is unemployed, has no form of transportation, and is on probation.

And, he argued that she

We can't say we didn't see this one coming!

According to E! News, Scheana Shay has split from her husband Mike Shay after two years of marriage. The couple released an official statement to the outlet late Wednesday afternoon.

As we previously reported, in early November the couple underwent MAJOR drama after Scheana accused Mike of cleaning out their bank account. The reality star also insinuated Mr. Shay was missing, an allegation he vehemently denied in a cheeky Instagram post.

Well, it seems like the twosome just weren't meant be!

The exes' official divorce statement went on to read:

"While we have made the difficult decision to move forward separately, our story will continue on through the love and mutual respect that we have cultivated throughout our 15-year friendship. Much of the recent speculation and reporting on our relationship has been misguided, and we have come to an amicable decision on all matters. We might have failed at our marriage, but we are committed to succeeding as friends and will continue to support each other's personal happiness and professional success."

Sounds reasonable! We'll just have to wait and see if this "amicable" spirit actually lasts…

So, what do YOU think of this split?

As we previously reported, Cuban despot Fidel Castro died on Friday, giving many Cubans who struggled through his reign reason to celebrate.

However, the Cuban government, now under the leadership of Castro's brother President Raul Castro, isn't taking so kindly to the celebratory reaction — and is making sure citizens are in mourning whether they like it or not.

Following the announcement on Friday, Cuban police put a stop to Cuba's nightlife and issued an order for nine days of mourning.

Desiigner is officially off the hook!

On Tuesday, the NYC District Attorney finally dismissed the drug charges against the rapper from his drug and weapon arrest earlier this year.

Back in September, the songsmith was arrested after he allegedly pulled a gun during a road rage incident. While investigating the supposed altercation, police also found a controlled substance in the 19-year-old's SUV.

However, the weapon charges were dropped once authorities failed to find a gun in the Panda performer's car.

And it turned out that the drugs-in-question were actually steroids that appeared to be prescribed to the New York native's driver.

So now, sources tell TMZ this new dismissal was an effort to maintain the cops' reputations, since they didn't drop the drug charges back when they dropped the weapon charges.

His lawyers, Ian Niles and Stacey Richman, were in court — the hitmaker wasn't — and told the tabloid that they're pleased with the results, saying:

Taylor Swift's groping case rages on.

By now, you've probably seen the photo that's been at the center of the Bad Blood singer's sexual assault lawsuit against radio DJ David Mueller.

Now, Mueller is throwing in his two cents.

During an interview with Mojo In The Morning on Tuesday, the accused DJ continues to deny any wrongdoing — and insists he never grabbed Tay inappropriately.
