Bella Thorne and Dane Cook looked like two peas in a pod hitting the town Wednesday night ... but we're told the hangout was strictly business.
Sources close to the pair tell TMZ ... Thorne, 18, and Cook, 44, are working on a new movie together and have been spending a lot of time together off-camera to bond. We're told the pics of them leaving the Improv are just that ... there's no type of relationship.
Thorne's been dating Gregg Sulkin for over a year and we're told things are just as good as ever between the two.
Usher's just the latest celeb to piss off drivers on NYC's 6th Ave ... only this time it was for the sake of ping-pong.
The R&B superstar obviously needs to work on his serve -- as you can see -- after getting into a quick match with jeweler to the stars Mr. Flawless ... who's made it a habit to block off the busy one-way street for photo shoots right outside his shop.
Usher proved to be a good sport though -- and apparently this publicity stunt hasn't gotten anybody busted ... at least not yet.
Check out the vid for yourself ... something tells us it won't be the last time you see Mr. Flawless getting honked at on 6th Ave.
Phaedra Parks has history with the man who allegedly threatened to blow up her law office, because she was once his manager and lawyer ... TMZ has learned.
Sources close to Terrence Cook -- aka Drama -- tell us Phaedra managed his music career back in 2000 when he was an up-and-coming rapper in Atlanta.
She was also his lawyer in a 2003 robbery case before she was removed as counsel. Cook served 12 years in prison for that case.
We're told after Cook was released from prison in 2015 ... he told friends he was going to Miami to meet up with Phaedra and shoot an episode of 'Real Housewives.' While in Miami, we're told he got seriously injured in a skydiving accident, and has been on the mend since.
Sources close to Cook say he blamed Phaedra for his downfall in life ... including his long prison term, defunct rap career, and skydiving injury. For the record, Bravo says Cook was never invited to shoot a 'Housewives' episode.
As we previously reported -- Cook was arrested Thursday morning when he showed up to what he thought was Phaedra's law office claiming he had a bomb strapped to his leg. Cops said he had an envelope and book, but determined there was no bomb.
The overzealous fan who slapped Justin Timberlake on a golf course was beyond drunk at the time of the incident, according to cops.
TMZ obtained the Douglas County Sheriff's report which says Keith Weglin's BAC was 0.18% when he got to jail ... more than twice the legal limit.
TMZ broke the story ... Keith was nabbed by cops after striking Justin in the face at the American Century Celebrity Pro-Am in Lake Tahoe. He could have gotten off scot-free, but cops say he refused to leave the course ... so, they arrested him for disorderly conduct.
One law enforcement source said Weglin talked himself right into jail. We've reached out to him, but no word back yet.
She's still hanging with friends on a yacht in Sardinia, Italy ... and this time we see what appears to be a bump ... of sorts.
You'll recall Lindsay went on a social media tirade -- and teased on Twitter she's pregnant -- after her blow-up with fiance Egor Tarabasov. Last time we saw her, Lindsay was smoking a cig, which is a major no-no when there's a bun in the oven.
News she's pregnant hasn't been confirmed ... and for all we know she coulda just been trying to stick it to Egor with a guilt trip. Interestingly enough ... sources tell TMZ Lindsay has privately told some family members she's preggo.
Prosecutors strongly objected to John HinckleyJr.'s release from a psychiatric hospital due to the fact he lied about his whereabouts multiple times when he was temporarily released in recent years.
Federal Judge Paul Friedman wrote a 103 page opinion when he signed off on Hinckley's release -- and in the docs he says the government pushed for more restrictions and protective measures for President Reagan's would-be killer.
The government pointed out that when Hinckley was released in 2011 on a work furlough he told supervisors he intended to go see movies ... which was approved -- but instead he went to a Barnes & Noble. They say Hinckley did this twice ... but both times he lied to supervisors and said he'd gone to the movies.
His supervisors knew he was lying because he was under constant observation.
Then in 2015 during another release ... he broke from his approved itinerary and visited a musician friend, instead of a photographer. This time though he fessed up to supervisors about the lie.
Judge Friedman called the 2011 incidents "troubling from a risk management perspective" ... but said Hinckley had made great progress. Friedman considered 2015 an improvement since he self-reported his lie.
It's clear why Hinckley's lies could be concerning to members of the Reagan family as well as Jodie Foster and her loved ones. Part of Hinckley's release does include a protective order requiring him to stay away from them.
A guy claiming he had a bomb strapped to his leg went looking for Phaedra Parks in her Atlanta office Thursday morning -- but he got the wrong building.
Police evacuated the office building the man walked into on Peachtree Road and responded to the scene. According to witnesses he walked in demanding to see Phaedra and said, "I'm not leaving. I've got a bomb."
The 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' star -- an entertainment lawyer -- does have an office on Peachtree, but it's a few buildings down from the one the man entered.
Police arrested a suspect. It's not clear if he really did have a bomb.
We don't even know if Phaedra was in her office. She's been in Philadelphia this week.
