In what appears to be their first public out since they split last month, Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne had lunch together today in Beverly Hills ... TMZ has learned.
According to our sources, the two dined at the Polo Lounge at the Beverly Hills Hotel. We're told Ozzy arrived first, accompanied by another man, and Sharon arrived a short time later.
The three dined at a booth inside, with our sources saying Sharon and Ozzy did not appear "romantic" ... rather more like a business lunch ... but the two were definitely talking.
As TMZ first reported, Sharon has been telling friends she would not consider getting back together with Ozzy until he proves he's sober for good this time. Last month, Ozzy wrote on Facebook that he had been sober since early March ... so if he has stayed clean, he'd be about 2.5 months sober now.
Time will tell if that's proof enough for Sharon that Ozzy has changed his ways.
UPDATE 2:20 PM PT -- One source tells us that by the end of the lunch, Ozzy and Sharon were "cozying up together in the booth."
The Neverland housekeeper who graphically described seeing Wade Robson naked in a shower with Michael Jackson ... will play a huge role in whether Robson wins a cent from MJ's Estate in his new civil lawsuit, TMZ has learned.
Sources close to the case tell us Wade's lawyers are dissecting Blanca Francia's testimony during Jackson's 2005 molestation trial.
During the trial, Francia -- who worked at Neverland in the late '80s -- testified she witnessed Jackson showering naked with a 7 or 8-year-old Wade.
We obtained a transcript of the testimony in which Francia describes seeing Michael's underwear on the floor outside the shower, as well as Wade's child-sized neon green underwear.
She said she couldn't see what Michael was doing exactly because the shower door was fogged up, but said she heard him laughing.
Ultimately, Francia's testimony wasn't enough to sway the jury -- MJ was acquitted -- partly because Wade himself also testified, but insisted Michael never touched him.
TMZ broke the story ... Wade is planning to argue that MJ's companies -- MJJ Productions and MJJ Ventures -- had a duty to protect him because they were involved in recruiting him from Australia to work with Michael.
According to sources, Wade wants to use Blanca's testimony to show Michael abused him as a child. We're told Wade's lawyers are also trying to contact her to see if she will cooperate in the new case.
The sale of the bikini Farrah Abraham wore for the cover of her sex tape has hit a snag ... eBay has pulled the listing down because it hasn't been washed since she wore it.
As TMZ first reported, Vivid Entertainment -- the porn studio behind the release of "Farrah Superstar: Backdoor Teen Mom" -- listed Farrah's pink crystal-encrusted two-piece with a starting bid of $500.
We're told eBay removed the listing and sent Vivid an email, saying, "Due to health and hygiene concerns our policy does not allow used clothing to be listed on the site unless the item has been washed first."
When the listing was pulled, bidding had reached a whopping $14,700!!!!!
We're told Vivid will wash the bikini and re-post the listing in a couple of days.
Akon has been ordered by a judge to cough up $5,000 a month in child support ... which would be considered MASSIVE ... except for the fact that he's raking in over $40,000 per month.
TMZ broke the story ... Akon filed a paternity caseagainst Rozina Negusei (one of his many baby mamas) because he wanted the court to establish custody, child support and legally recognize him as daddy Akon to their two young sons.
As part of the process, Akon had to file docs about how much money he makes. He listed his income as $40,708/month and based on that number, a judge ordered him to pony up $5,000/month for the kids.
According to the docs, the judge took into consideration that Akon makes SIX other child support payments.
As for the rest of it ... Akon's baby mama received sole physical custody and the two will share legal custody. Akon also gets a say in all major decisions and will cover health insurance for the two boys.
Kendall Schmidt from "Big Time Rush" tried to do a nice thing for his fans in Europe ... but says he got screwed when the airlines lost his bag, and thousands of dollars worth of jewelry.
Schmidt -- BTR's lead singer on the TV show, and in the band -- is currently performing with his other band, Heffron Drive, on a European tour ... and wanted to give his fans some custom-made necklaces and bracelets.
According to our sources, Schmidt was flying from Orlando to Austria when the bag filled with the jewelry went missing.
We're told the luggage eventually resurfaced in Berlin, but the $7,000 worth of goodies had disappeared. We're told Schmidt filed a report with the airline ... in hopes of getting a cash reimbursement.
At least Schmidt was able to joke about it during his show in Vienna.
Beyonce posted (and quickly deleted from Instagram) a harsh response to the rumors she's carrying baby #2 ... bashing the media as "low life people who have nothing better to do than talk about me."
It's an odd response to a pregnancy rumor -- it's not like reports are saying she's hooked on drugs or splitting from hubby Jay-Z. A simple "Yes it's true" or "No it isn't" would solve the problem ... but she opted for neither.
Just how replaceable ARE "American Idol" judges? According to "Idol" champ Taylor Hicks ... SUPER DUPER REPLACEABLE.
Taylor was out in L.A. on Friday when our photog asked the season five winner the only interesting thing left to ask about "Idol" ... is it time to replace ALL the judges?
Randy Jackson -- the last remaining original judge -- made his exitafter the season finale, and it's been reported that newbie judges Nicki Minaj, Mariah Carey and Keith Urban are all on the chopping block.
But Taylor is unfazed by the "A.I" shake up and believes the "revolving door" of judges COULD be a way to save the slowly dying show.
And in case you forgot who Taylor is, here you go:
The Wisconsin racetrack where Dick Trickle forged his legacy -- winning TONS of races en route to becoming a NASCAR star -- is honoring the driver with a special pre-race ceremony when stock car season kicks off later this month, TMZ has learned.
It's all happening at the Wisconsin International Raceway in Kaukauna, WI (just south of Green Bay) -- where Trickle won so many races during his pre-NASCAR career, track officials named a building in Turn 2 the "Dick Trickle Pavilion."
We've learned ... officials at the W.I.R. have greenlit plans to commemorate their local hero with a memorial lap in Dick's honor on May 30 ... with the pace car carrying a black flag.
A rep for the company says Trickle was "a true champion, good friend and will be missed by all."
As we previously reported, officials say Dick died Thursday from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound in North Carolina.
