Halle Berry

I'm Not Divorcing

I Just Lost My Damn Ring!

27 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0804-halle-barry-wedding-ring-festival-GETTY-03Halle Berry divorce rumors have been in high gear, and the evidence fueling the fire is that she's been ringless ... but now we know why, and it has nothing to do with divorce.

Our sources say, Halle lost her engagement ring in Mexico a year-and-a-half ago. She was at the Acapulco International Film Festival in January 2014 where she received the Silver Jaguar Award. Halle says the ring either fell off her hand or she left it on a table and someone took it.

As for why she or hubby Olivier Martinez haven't replaced it ... we're told it just wasn't a priority.

BUT .... she still regularly wears her gold wedding band.

Our sources say there's been no discussion about divorce with an attorney.

Sorry, fellas ... Halle is still off the market.

Blake Shelton

Threatens Mag Over Affair Allegation

I Never Touched that Woman

37 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0804-blake-shelton-cady-groves-TMZ-INSTAGRAM-01Blake Shelton is slamming rumors he had an affair with country singer Cady Groves ... threatening to sue the magazine that made the claim ... and also insisting she's in on the lie. 

We've learned Shelton's attorneys have fired a letter to In Touch magazine, demanding they retract their story about Shelton and Groves carrying on an affair. 

In the letter, we're told Shelton's attorneys describe Groves as someone who became "infatuated" with Shelton. The letter accuses the magazine of using Grove as its source, and any insinuation by her that she had an affair with Blake is a lie. 

The legal letter is strong, "Mr. Shelton did not have a sexual relationship or affair of any nature whatsoever with Ms. Groves." 

Since the rumor surfaced, Groves has spoken about Shelton ... but has stopped short of denying the affair. 

In Touch is not backing down, saying, "Not only does In Touch magazine stand by its story but we have another exclusive about Blake and Miranda's divorce in this week's issue."

Louis Gossett Jr.

Recapturing My Youth ...

Hurts Like a Bitch

57 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0804-louis-gosset-jr-ear-peirced-TMZ-01Oscar winner Louis Gossett Jr. is 79-years-old, but NOT too old to rock some new ice in his ear ... much like the average teenager.

Louis got his left ear re-pierced Monday at T-Man Tattoo in Studio City, CA. He told staffers he first got it pierced back in '74 for a movie role, but it closed up when he stopped wearing earrings sometime in the '80s.

T-Man owner Howard Teman says the 'Officer and a Gentleman' star brought in an eraser-sized diamond stud to fill the hole -- and entertained everyone by busting out the alien voice from “Enemy Mine.”

All told, he dropped $45 for the piercing and aftercare products ... plus a generous tip.

Fun fact: LGJ just edged out a couple of elderly pierced gents -- Morgan Freeman is 78, and Harrison Ford, a spry 73.

Some People Will NEVER Forgive Me

... and Now I Know Why

breaking news

Ray Rice is no longer just insisting he's a changed man -- he also understands why the images of him knocking out his wife ... are all some people will ever think of when they see him, on or off a football field.

Rice spoke to ESPN's Outside the Lines -- about his attempts to make a comeback in the NFL, and in life. Rice said, "Over time I want to be able to rewrite the script to tell my daughter ... 'Y'know, Daddy made the worst decision of his life, but this is what I did going forward."

He also said he understands how serious domestic violence issues are now, and assured victims he'll never take that for granted.

Rice added, "If you have never seen what domestic violence looks like, and you look at my video I can understand why some people will never forgive me."

Rice is a free agent -- eligible to be signed by any NFL team, but no takers yet.

Elon Musk

Third Time's a Charm ...

Pulls Plug on Divorce Again!

8/4/2015 3:39 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0804-elon-musk-talulah-musk-TMZ-GETTY-01Billionaire PayPal and Tesla founder Elon Musk isn't quite ready to legally cut ties from his wife -- he's ditching plans to divorce actress Talulah Riley ... whom he already divorced once before. 

Musk filed for divorce on January 1, 2015, but now he's followed up by filing a request to dismiss the divorce ... and the new docs indicate Talulah's on board with the reversal. 

Musk and Riley initially married in 2010, but divorced two years later. They remarried in July 2013, only to hit the skids again. 

All this indecision has hit Musk where it really hurts -- he's paid her settlements of $4.2 million and $16 mil for each split. Then again, he's reportedly worth $14 billion ... so, it can't hurt THAT much.

We've reached out to Elon to see if this is a full reconciliation, but no word back.

Exclusive Details

0804-pierce-brosnan-SPLASH-01Pierce Brosnan tried to board a plane Sunday afternoon with a knife in his bag, but 007 couldn't slip it by TSA agents ... who called him out on it. 

A TSA official from the Burlington International Airport in Vermont tells TMZ ... it is unclear if Brosnan knew the knife was in his carry-on bag, but once they saw the weapon ... they pulled the bag aside and called over Brosnan. 

The official says they gave Brosnan the option to surrender the knife, or put it in his checked baggage. He took door #2, and went on his way. 

No arrest. No citation.

As usual, the 48-0 Floyd is feeling confident. He boasted on his IG post, "September 12, 2015 for number 49. Come be part of the history." 

Of course, Berto's no slouch at 33-3. Place your wagers.

Kylie Jenner

I Don't Want to Be on Camera ...

No, Really!

8/4/2015 1:21 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0804-kylie-jenner-getty-01Kylie Jenner is making Kardashian-Jenner family history by trying to AVOID a camera -- as part of her car accident lawsuit.

Jenner is looking to get out of giving a videotaped deposition related to her August 2013 crash ... which happened just 18 days after she got her license.

In new court docs, Jenner says the depo is unnecessary since she's accepted blame all along for the accident. Jenner claims she's offered to settle the suit for $20,000 ... but the victim has refused and insists on dragging this thing into court

Jenner thinks this is really just a play to get publicity for the case ... possibly, by leaking the taped depo. She wants the judge to 86 plans to record her testimony ... or at least, keep it sealed.

She must be getting legal advice from Bieber and Lil Wayne.

'Bachelor In Paradise' Wedding

FAKE

The Knot Was Not Tied

8/4/2015 11:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0803-bachelor-in-paradise-fake-wedding-fun-art-TMZ-GETTY-COMPOSITE-01The couple that got married on the season premiere of the "Bachelor In Paradise" took everyone for a ride because TMZ has learned the whole thing was nothing more than a ratings ploy.

Last season's "success story" Lacy Faddoul and Marcus Grodd made everyone believe they were taking the plunge with an emotional beach wedding near Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, but we’re told it was NOT legally binding.

According to our sources the couple doesn't have a marriage license in either Mexico or the U.S. 

We're told a real marriage won't be happening anytime soon either since Marcus is away finishing up his Coast Guard training  ... so the 'Bachelor' franchise success ratio is still at 5/34.

A little over 10% ... the odds were never in their favor.

Kelly Osbourne Misspeak

Trump Needs Latinos ...

To Clean His Toilet

8/4/2015 10:27 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kelly Osbourne stepped into it on "The View" Tuesday, challenging Donald Trump's statement about Mexicans and asking if he has his way ... who will clean his toilet?

Osbourne quipped, "If you kick every Latino out of this country, then who is going to be cleaning your toilet, Donald Trump?" 

Rosie Perez challenged Kelly, who immediately tried to clarify. Rosie tweeted after the show, "My apologizes @KellyOsbourne, I took your point wrong - #TrumpLatinos. My Bad. You're heart is so pure and righteous. I adore you." 

For her part, Osbourne wrote about the flub later, saying, "I should have known better as I was on The View and it was live. I’ve learned a very valuable lesson. It is my hope that this situation will open up a conversation about immigration and the Latin community as a whole. By the way I clean my own f**king toilets."

Lenny Kravitz

Exposes Junk

Leather Pants FAIL!!!

8/4/2015 8:53 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0804-lenny-kravitz-rexusa-02Lenny Kravitz had the worst wardrobe malfunction of all-time -- or maybe the best -- when his leather pants ripped completely open onstage ... and his junk fell out. 

Luckily, Lenny had a back-up pair of pants during his Monday show in Stockholm -- so he was able to do a quick wardrobe change and finish the concert. Even luckier ... he's got no reason to be shy.

Encore!
