Richard Simmons Slimmons Studio Closing

10/21/2016 2:31 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1021_richard_Simmons_slimmons_sub_launchRichard Simmons' famed exercise studio Slimmons is closing for good ... TMZ has learned.

The reclusive Richard hasn't been seen in public for more than 2 1/2 years, and it eventually took a fatal toll on his studio, where he was once a fixture. Simmons simply disappeared.

The studio sent out notices it would be out of business effective November 19th.

TMZ broke numerous stories about Richard over the last 2 years, including concerns he was being held against his will. The LAPD did a welfare check in January 2015 and found he was fine.

Richard has said he wanted out of the Hollywood spotlight and was battling knee problems, but others who were once a big part of his life think it's much deeper than that.

Simmons was hospitalized June 3rd, after his housekeeper called 911 and told the dispatcher he was exhibiting bizarre behavior. Simmons later said it was simply a case of dehydration.

Tom Gores Pistons Owner Buys $100 Million Mansion!!!

10/21/2016 2:14 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1021-paul-gores-coldwellbankerhomes-01One of the best properties in all of Los Angeles just sold ... for a cool $100 mil, TMZ has learned.

Detroit Pistons' owner Tom Gores snagged the Holmby Hills estate Thursday. The place is spectacular ... 30,000 square feet, 10 bedrooms, 20 bathrooms, a 10 car garage, ridiculous pools, including an indoor waterfall that drops into a lap pool, beauty salon, wine room, massage room, movie theater ... and on and on.

The master suite alone is 5,300 square feet!

It's the second $100 million sale in L.A. ... back in August the Playboy Mansion, also located in Holmby Hills, sold for the same amount.

Gores kept it all in the family. He was repped by real estate agents Tiffany and Christy Martin, his nieces, and sister Samira.  All 3 agents are with The Agency, which by the way also sold the Playboy Mansion.

The property used to be owned by Barbara Streisand back in the day, but years later it was razed and the new house was built.

Exclusive Details

1021_tory-lanez_tmzThe after-party for a Tory Lanez concert went to hell when gunshots rang out next to the Canadian hip-hop star's tour bus -- and fans turned on him in the aftermath.

Law enforcement tells us the incident went down just after 2 AM in Lincoln, Nebraska ... when fans started arguing over who could party on Tory's tour bus after his show. Things got heated, and cops say 21-year-old Anthony Parks busted out a handgun and fired 3 shots into the air.

No one was injured though, because Parks was firing a starter pistol with blanks ... according to police. He was cited for disturbing the peace and released.

We're told Tory was interviewed by police before he got outta Dodge. He left behind some pissed off fans who were trying to get on his bus to meet him. Clearly, the gunshots didn't scare them off the scene.


Larsa Pippen I'm Not Bangin' Future ... We're Just Friends

10/21/2016 12:24 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1021_scottie_pippen_future-larsa-pippen-tmz-instagram-2Future is NOT the reason Larsa Pippen and Scottie are calling it quits ... this according to sources connected to Larsa. 

Fact of the matter is ... people have spotted Larsa and Future hanging out recently in Miami -- and with Scottie filing for divorce this week, there have been rumblings that Larsa and Future were a thing.

But sources extremely close with Larsa tell us ... they've been friends for a while and there's nothing romantic going on with them.

We've also got Future sources telling us the same thing -- and noting that he's got so many women, he's not about to mess with a married one.

We're told Scottie has been traveling a lot (mostly to Chicago for business) and Larsa felt the two were drifting -- and that's partly why they decided to call off the 19 year marriage.

The two have 4 kids together and Larsa has said she's hopeful the two can continue to co-parent together. 


Taylor Swift Judge Seals Groping Photo

10/21/2016 11:59 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1021-taylor-swift-tmzTaylor Swift just got what she wanted from a judge, who agreed with her that the photo of a DJ allegedly groping her at a concert will be kept from the public until the case goes to trial.

Taylor filed legal docs, claiming the photo was inappropriate for public consumption because it would merely engender "scandalous" and "prurient" behavior and make it hard to find an impartial jury.

The judge ruled, "The widespread dissemination of this image might significantly complicate jury selection."

Taylor had also asked to restrict access to other evidence, but she lost that bid. The judge said all the other stuff is "entirely ordinary and mundane."

Elon Musk Strikes 2nd Divorce Settlement

10/21/2016 11:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Elon Musk and his on-again-off-again-on-again-off-again wife have settled their divorce case ... TMZ has learned.

Elon and Talulah Riley submitted legal docs Wednesday informing the judge they have reached a full settlement in their divorce case. As we reported, Talulah filed for divorce in March. Elon had previously filed on New Year's Eve 2014, but withdrew his petition 6 months later.

This will end their second marriage. They tied the knot the first time in 2010 but divorced 2 years later.

Sources connected with the couple tell us it was amicable. They have no kids together. As for property, we know they had a prenup, which is no shock.

Elon's net worth is estimated at $11.5 billion. When Elon filed in 2014, his rep said he had agreed to pay her $16 mil ... but again, that divorce was withdrawn. We're guessing that may have gone up in the last 2 years.

As we reported, Elon and Amber Heard were hanging out a lot during the summer, but they haven't been seen together recently.

The judge has yet to sign the docs to officially make Elon and Talulah single.

TMZ broke the story ... Stevie was indicted for failing to pay $1.1 million in child support.

Taylor Swift My Groping Pics Will Get People Off Don't Release Them!

10/21/2016 6:33 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1021-taylor-swift-david-mueller-tmz-twitter-01Taylor Swift thinks the pics of a DJ allegedly groping her will get people all hot and bothered ... so much so she wants the judge in the case to seal them.

Taylor made the pitch in legal docs in her lawsuit against radio DJ David Mueller ... claiming the release of the pics would "be shared for scandalous and prurient interests."

That's short for ... the press will have a field day with this stuff ... and folks will get super aroused.

Taylor thinks the release of the pics would create unfairness against her ... to the point of influencing a jury pool, saying, "the interest in a fair and impartial trial outweigh any public interest in access to the documents identified above."

You'll recall ... Mueller originally sued Taylor last year, saying he was fired after she publicly claimed he groped her backstage in 2013 at one of her concerts. Taylor countersued ... saying he absolutely did. 

In her docs, Taylor calls the pics "extremely personal and sensitive."

Donald Trump & Hillary Clinton Famous Boobs at Roast Steal Show ... Totally by Accident

10/21/2016 9:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

1021-Maria-Bartiromo-donald-trump-cnnWhile Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton went HAM on each other during the NYC roast/charity dinner ... they were also getting upstaged by a pair of famous boobs that were expertly placed.

The Internet was rightfully distracted by Maria Bartiromo's cleavage, which was in every shot behind the candidates at the Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner. Organizers of the event tell us it was no mistake the FOX Business host was umm ... prominently displayed.

We're told the 70 people on the 5-tier dais were assigned seats to balance out people from politics, media, business and philanthropy. Obviously, Maria checks the media and business boxes.

Despite all visual evidence, we're told she did NOT get the prime seat due to her fame, or her dress. Sooo ... we just got lucky.
