Nicki Minaj Was NOT Dropped From Chris Brown’s IndiGOAT Tour

Nicki Minaj Not Dropped From Chris Brown’s Tour … She Never Signed On

6/12/2019 1:00 AM PDT

EXCLUSIVE

Nicki Minaj wasn’t dropped from Chris Brown‘s upcoming tour, but ya still won’t see her onstage with him — because she’s putting her music before life on the road.  

Here’s the sitch — people freaked out on Monday after Chris officially announced his IndiGOAT Tour that’s set to kick off this summer … because Nicki was left out of the lineup … a lineup that includes Tory Lanez, Ty Dolla $ign and other big names.

Why that matters, you may ask? Two months ago, a report came out claiming Chris and Nicki were going on tour together in the fall … which Chris himself seemed to confirm by responding with the following social media message. 

Sources with knowledge tell TMZ … Nicki never signed on to Chris’ tour in any capacity.  We’re told the two artists did discuss touring together after their G-Eazy collab, “Wobble Up,” but talks never materialized into a deal.

We’re told Nicki’s the one who decided the tour wasn’t for her, but not because she had beef with Chris. Her reasons were several … she was working on music and a tour would have cut into her studio time, and she just wrapped her European tour and going out on the road again was too much.  

Kate Beckinsale Kisses Date as They Leave L.A. Restaurant

Kate Beckinsale Kiss Kiss

6/1/2019 7:21 AM PDT

Kate Beckinsale seems to have moved on from Pete Davidson … and she made what looks like a public declaration that was sealed with a smooch.

Kate and a dude were in WeHo Friday leaving Craig’s, and with the glare of camera lights trained on them, they locked lips.

Obviously, can’t say for sure if this is the real deal, but they seemed tight.

As for Pete, he spent Friday night on a catwalk … modeling for the first time at Alexander Wang’s Collection1 2020 show at Rockefeller Center in New York City. People are going after him on social media for his walk, but then again people on social media go after everybody for anything.

As for Kate, we can’t figure out who the guy is, but we do know Craig’s seems to be her go-to date joint when she’s in L.A. She went there on her first public date with Pete Davidson as well.

After leaving Craig’s, Kate and her date went to a nearby pub.

Shia LaBeouf on Lunch Date with Mystery Brunette, Sans FKA Twigs

Shia LaBeouf Nothing Heals a Nick Like Lunch w/ a Smokin’ Hot Chick

6/1/2019 11:39 AM PDT

EXCLUSIVE

Shia LaBeouf is licking his wounds with the best possible medicine — a gorgeous gal … and a bowl of greens. Au naturel, baby!

The actor was spotted grabbing a bite Friday at the chic DTLA restaurant Otium, where he and a mystery brunette were chowing down on what we’re told appeared to be salads. No clear signs of PDA here, but an eyewitness tells us they were cozying up and seemed pretty comfortable in each other’s company … especially Shia. 

Looks like he might’ve even gone in for a bite of his lady friend’s lunch. So yeah … we’d say they’re probably tight.

BTW, check out the little cut above Shia’s eye here. Nothing too crazy, but it does seem like he might’ve recently injured himself. As far as recovery goes … he’s doing it right.

Now for an even more obvious note … we’re not seeing his most recent girlfriend, FKA Twigs, anywhere in these pics. They’ve reportedly been dating since fall 2018 and were most recently spotted cupcaking in public a couple of months ago. 

Unclear if their romance is kaput, but if it is … this is one helluva way to bounce back.

Luann De Lesseps’ ‘RHONY’ Gig Not in Jeopardy Despite New Legal Trouble

Luann De Lesseps ‘RHONY’ Producers Give Her a Pass After Probation Violation

5/29/2019 12:50 AM PDT

EXCLUSIVE

Luann de Lesseps is still pissing off judges and her probation officer, but her real-life problems are NOT jeopardizing her reality TV future with ‘Housewives’ — at least, not yet. 

Sources close to the “Real Housewives of New York” production tell TMZ … Luann’s position and security on the show are as strong as ever, despite the fact she continues to run into trouble while on probation for her drunken arrest case from 17 months ago.

As we reported … she’s already violated the terms of probation at least twice … once for failing to prove she was going to AA meetings, and more recently for downing a couple mimosas.

After her most recent violation, she was slapped with newer, even stricter terms.

Our sources are clear though — Luann’s job is not on the line, and higher-ups haven’t even discussed the possibility of firing her … despite reports suggesting otherwise. 

Fact is, Luann is great for TV right now because the fallout from her arrest offers up juicy drama and an interesting narrative for viewers. Translation … ratings, baby!!!

One other thing our sources say should be taken into account … some of the other ‘RHONY’ cast members have gotten wasted on-camera before, and have endured plenty of public embarrassment — and they’re still there.

So, for now … no one’s tossing out baby Luann with the bath water. Or bath mimosa, in this case.

Moby Pivots to Climate Change After Apologizing to Natalie Portman

Moby My Apologies to Natalie Now, Can We Talk Earth for a Sec?

5/27/2019 1:19 PM PDT

Moby is ready to move on from his claim that he once dated, or tried dating, a young Natalie Portman … ’cause he’s got another hot topic up his sleeve: the planet.

The musician was questioned Monday by a pap in L.A. — just a couple days after he publicly apologized for including Natalie in his new memoir. He drew a ton of backlash when she denied ever dating him in the ’90s, despite his assertion they were kinda-almost a thing. 

The pap gets to the meat of what many feel was left unanswered … are the details of what he alleged true or not? Moby fully deflects … switching gears to climate change. 

In his mea culpa, Moby said … “As some time has passed I’ve realized that many of the criticisms leveled at me regarding my inclusion of Natalie in Then It Fell Apart are very valid.” He went on to say, “I also fully recognize that it was truly inconsiderate of me to not let her know about her inclusion in the book beforehand, and equally inconsiderate for me to not fully respect her reaction.”

Worth noting … Moby did NOT retract his characterization of their relationship — which came off as romantic in his book. He paints it like they were circling a full-blown relationship … saying they kissed a few times and slept in the same bed together once, until Natalie eventually told him she’d started seeing someone else.

Meanwhile, Natalie responded by saying the brief time she knew him wasn’t anything close to dating. In fact, she labeled their dynamic at the time as “creepy.” FWIW, she didn’t specifically deny any of his details either … other than to say she was 18 and not 20, as he recalled.

So … case closed?

Josh Duhamel on Date with New Young Woman After Saying He Wants More Kids

Josh Duhamel Hangin’ with New, Young Date … Future Baby Mama???

5/28/2019 8:42 AM PDT

Josh Duhamel says he’s in the market for a woman who can give him another kid or 2, and he’s definitely found a new candidate … at least based on the look of the YOUNG woman with him.

The actor was grabbing dinner Monday with a mystery brunette at Nobu in Malibu. There was no blatant PDA here, but it sure seems like it was a dinner date. It was only the 2 of ’em hanging out. 

Here’s what makes it super interesting — Josh went on Dax Shepard‘s “Armchair Expert” podcast late last year and said he wants to father more children, and if he settles down again it’s gonna be with someone who’s young enough to make it happen.

Funny enough, Josh had been seen getting cozy with actress Rebekah Graf right around that same time. They aren’t hanging out so much these days — case in point, these pics — and it should also be noted that Rebekah is already 36 years old. Josh — who’s only got 1 kid so far with his ex, Fergie — is 46. 

We don’t know how old this woman here is — looks to be a 20-something, though — but based on what he wants … she might very well be the perfect fit. 

Get busy, y’all. Ticktock, ticktock!!!

Rob Gronkowski’s NFL Handcuffs Are Off & WWE Is Possibility, Says Mojo Rawley

WWE’s Mojo Rawley ‘Gronk’s NFL Handcuffs Are Off’ … The Beast Is Loose!!

3/25/2019 1:53 PM PDT

EXCLUSIVE

Rob Gronkowski is no longer “shackled” by the NFL and the New England Patriots — and that means we could see him RUN WILD in the WWE very soon … so says his good friend, Mojo Rawley

Everyone knows Gronk LOVES pro wrestling — remember he made a cameo with Mojo at Wrestlemania 33 in 2017 — and people are speculating he could become a WWE superstar now that his NFL career is over

[embedded content]

We spoke with Mojo, who says he wouldn’t be shocked if Gronk turned his focus to the ring … and predicts it’s only a matter of time. 

The best part of this clip … Mojo strongly suggests the NFL and the Patriots pressured Rob into toning down his public persona to make sure he stayed out of trouble. 

But now, “without the shackles” … Gronk is a “whole ‘nother beast” and Mojo says he can’t wait to see Rob UNLEASHED!!

“Yo, let’s go, baby,” Mojo says in a video message for his pal  … “It’s time to turn up! The handcuffs are off!”

“You don’t have the Patriots and the NFL locking you down anymore! If you thought Gronk was wild before, I’m telling you, wait ’til you see him without the shackles on!!!”

There are rumors Gronk could crash ‘Raw’ tonight — which happens to be in Boston. 

Stay tuned!!!

Jason Biggs Says Tara Reid is Wrong, I Love Seann William Scott

Jason Biggs Tara’s Got it Wrong … I Love Stifler!!!

2/26/2019 6:35 AM PST

EXCLUSIVE

Jason Biggs is shutting down the rumor — started by Tara Reid — that he’s got beef with Seann William Scott … ’cause he says it’s all love between Jim and The Stifmeister.

We got the ‘American Pie’ star shuffling his way into a waiting car at LAX Monday night, where we asked him about Tara’s recent comment at a pre-Oscar gala last week … when she said Jason and Seann would have to get along for ‘AP5’ to happen.

Jason tells us he has no idea what Tara’s talking about, and her suggestion couldn’t be further from the truth. He says he’s cool with Seann, and loves the guys from the cast.

The last time Jim, Stif and the rest of the East Great Falls gang got together on camera was for 2012’s “American Reunion” … so it’s been a minute since we got some fresh pie. 

While he says he’d be down to run it back for part 5, we won’t hold our breath based on how fast Jason hightailed it here.

Wendy Williams Dodges Questions About Husband’s Alleged Affair

Wendy Williams I’m Doing Just Fine … See My Ring, Guys???

3/27/2019 1:53 PM PDT

Wendy Williams isn’t batting an eyelash about rumors regarding her husband allegedly having a baby with another woman … but she is batting her ring finger at photogs.

The talk show host was leaving a Pilates studio Wednesday in NYC, where paps were at the ready to fire off questions about how she was doing … without asking point-blank about her hubby’s alleged mistress. It seems they didn’t need to though … based on her reaction.

Wendy told the paps that she was fine and was carrying on with her business — in fact, she says she was just on her way to a book signing. When one photog asked about her wedding ring, Wendy was happy to flash it … so it’s pretty clear she’s not sweating cheating stories.

We know that too. Sources close to the production of her show tell us her hubby’s still working on set as an EP, and that he and Wendy have even interacted civilly behind the scenes.

If there is creepin’ going on … Wendy isn’t letting on one bit.

Wendy Williams’ Husband Still On Set Despite Alleged Mistress Giving Birth

Wendy Williams Hubby Still On Set Despite Alleged Mistress’ Birth

3/27/2019 12:50 AM PDT

EXCLUSIVE

Wendy Williams is dealing with more drama off camera — her husband allegedly just had a baby with another woman … but he and Wendy are still on set together because he’s still an executive producer of her talk show.

Production sources tell TMZ … Kevin Hunter has remained on set with Wendy this week as she films her show — despite the fact that a woman he’s allegedly having an affair with just popped out a baby this week. We’re told the 2 are interacting and there’s no overt sign of hostility.

Rumors have been swirling about Hunter’s alleged mistress, Sharina Hudson, giving birth in Philly Monday after having gone into labor Sunday night. The very next day, Kevin was on set.

We’re told the vibe is awkward for others on the show, but so far … Wendy and Kevin haven’t shown their cards. 

This, of course, follows Wendy’s revelation last week she’s living in a sober house to fight off temptations involving her addiction. 

Even weirder … she plugged a foundation she founded with her hubby — The Hunter Foundation — as a means to get people the help they need to kick substance abuse issues.
