Mariah Carey, Brett Ratner

On the LOVE BOAT!!!

3/29/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0328-main-mariah-carey-tmz-wm-01Mariah Carey and Brett Ratner have pulled a Swift/Harris ... they are full-throttle together.

This pic was taken Saturday on a yacht in St. Barts. Sources -- let's just say close to the boat -- say they're all over each other. She's totally into him and he is nuts for her.

Ratner recently said he and Mariah were just really good friends, calling rumors of romance "ridiculous." Well now that's just ridiculous, because they're in full romance mode. We're told she's over Nick and moved on.

Ratner has directed a bunch of films, including "Horrible Bosses" and "Rush Hour." He also directed music videos, including Mariah's "Obsessed," and "Touch My Body." 

It's very age appropriate. She turned 45 Friday and he turned 46 Saturday. So for 1 day each year they're the same age.

By the way ... the boat is owned by one of Brett's billionaire friends and it's REALLY nice.

Amber Rose & Wiz Khalifa

We're Burying the Hatchet

For the Sake of Our Kid

3/29/2015 12:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Amber Rose Wiz Khalifa RelationshipAmber Rose and Wiz Khalifa have called a truce in their custody war ... and they've agreed to co-parent their son ... TMZ has learned. 

You'll recall Amber and Wiz were at each other's throats, each calling the other a horrible parent and unfit to care for their 2-year-old son Sebastian.

But a song changed Amber's tune. She heard Wiz's new song, "See You Again," which appears on the "Furious 7" soundtrack. We're told here's what got to her:

How could we not talk about family when family's all that we got?
Everything I went through you were standing there by my side
And now you gonna be with me for the last ride

Our sources say Wiz asked Amber to listen to the song, and after she heard it she tearfully called him back and they agreed to work as parents to care for Sebastian.

Baby steps.

Tyler Perry Star's Divorce

Ditching My Scrub of a Husband

Is Costing Me a Fortune

EXCLUSIVE

Actress Tasha Smith will think twice about getting hitched again -- the now ex-husband she calls a glorified assistant just scored a fat settlement in their divorce.  

According to the court docs ... the "Why Did I Get Married?" star has been ordered to hand over nearly $7k/month in spousal support to Keith Douglas. That's on top of the $50k she already shelled out to him in December.

As we previously reported ... their rocky marriage took some crazy twists, including mutual restraining orders, and both saying they feared for their lives.

The settlement wasn't a total loss for Tasha ... Keith had to give back her Mercedes.  

Unfortunately her friends all drive Porsches, but she'll make amends.

I Believe He Can Pay

For Backing Out Of Show

3/29/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0327-r-kelly-tmz-01R. Kelly pissed off a concert promoter by pulling out of an upcoming show, and stiffing the guy on his hefty deposit ... this according to the promoter who just hit Kelly with a Texas-sized lawsuit.

Darryl Austin says he hand delivered a $100k deposit to Kelly's team in January for him to headline an April concert in Dallas. According to the docs ... when February rolled around R. Kelly's rep played dumb and claimed to know nothing about the show.

Austin says the real insult came when the self-proclaimed Pied Piper of R&B returned the deposit ... $30,000 SHORT!! 

Austin wants the court to either force Kelly to do the show ... or pay back the dough.

Stan Lee

Buy My Mansion

And I'll Throw In Spider-Man

EXCLUSIVE

0327-stan-lee-spider-man-statue-01

Stan Lee is wheeling and dealing ... unloading one of his mansions and willing to sweeten the deal with Spidey.

Our real estate sources tell us ... sure, you can snag Stan's ritzy pad in the posh Bird Streets of L.A. for $5 mil.

Now here's the sweetener ... he's willing to throw in the autographed, life-size Spider-Man statue in the entry, but not for free -- it's $25k extra. The extra cash will go to charity.

Stan snagged the 5,000 sq. ft. house with 5-bedrooms and 7.5 bath for his daughter back in 2012 for $3.4 mil, but she's moved on, so he's cashing in.

Remember, house spiders are good luck.

Exclusive Details

0328-nick-jonas-instagram-02Nick Jonas is pulling double duty ... hosting The Kids Choice Awards and, maybe more importantly, delivering booze to thirsty chicks.

TMZ spoke with Angela Mayhew who says that Jonas came to her West Hollywood apartment with a bottle of pinot grigio for her and her friends. But he didn't stop there ... she tells us Jonas joined in on the fun, having a glass himself and playing two songs.

0328-SUB-nick-jonas-instagram-01Don't worry, Nick's not pulling a Zayn Malik ... he merely teamed up with Saucey -- an app that delivers alcohol straight to homes -- for a one night promotion.

He might want some of that booze to handle those kids tonight. Just sayin' ...

Reggae Artist Mavado

Philippe Chow Only Likes Black in Bean Sauce

3/28/2015 9:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0328-mavado-instagram-01Reggae Artist Mavado claims he was treated like a bum and even verbally abused at a fancy Asian restaurant ... simply because he's black.

Sources close to Mavado tell TMZ ... he hit up Philippe Chow in NYC for lunch Thursday with his family, when he was curiously put in the back of the restaurant, even though it was pretty much empty.

Mavado didn't complain and the family got down to business, chowing down at Chow, when he walked over to another empty table and had someone in his family take a pic of him.  He says that's when a manager said he couldn't sit at that table because they were expecting guests.

Mavado claims the manager added he was prohibited from using his phone in ANY manner.

He then claims he got the bum's rush ... all of the food came out at once.  We gotta say, that's what Asian restaurants typically do, but that's his story.  He says he felt like they wanted to get him out.

Things got hot as fish grease when Mavado's wife tried sending the rice back.  He says the manager came over and pitched a fit.  He says the rice stayed put, yet it was included in the bill.

Mavado then accused the restaurant of treating him shabbily because he's black, and the manager allegedly slammed the bill on the table and told him never to come back.

Mavado claims his manager was later contacted by the restaurant and they profusely apologized, saying they didn't know he was a famous person.  Mavado says he'll never go back.

As for the restaurant, we called and a manager said, "We are talking to Mavado's people and we have no comment."

Justin Bieber

Love Bites

3/28/2015 7:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0328-justin-bieber-bites-sbs-01Justin Bieber has just learned what most men realize at his age ... hickeys are for kids.

Truth be told, we don't know for sure it's a hickey, but let us deconstruct.  JB was poolside Friday, and strategically covered up his neck with a towel.

0328-SUB-justin-bieber-towel-shots-01He was there with Kendall Jenner and Kourtney's kids.  Others may have been there as well.

When he went to Mastro's Friday night, he lost the towel and the marks were apparent.

No doubt Justin gets a lot of action, but come on girls.

Scott Disick

Turnt Up in Vegas

After 'Rehab'

3/28/2015 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Scott Disick was a wild man in Vegas, scoring a big fee for hosting Friday night festivities at 1OAK.

Disick, you know, bailed on rehab a week ago because he said he had business obligations.  Before he left his cushy Costa Rican facility, he partied at 2 nightclubs.   He kept it going last night.

No evidence Disick, who famously has problems with alcohol abuse, was boozing it up in the club.

You hear Disick scream in the video, inviting clubgoers to orally pleasure his friend.

The whole rehab thing is really starting to sound fallacious. 

 

Calvin Harris

Taylor Swift is Fine

And She's Good for Business, Too

3/28/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0327-calvin-harris-taylor-swfit-TMZ-01Calvin Harris went from outright rejecting Taylor Swift to embracing her, and several friends tell us, there's a business side to his change of heart.

Calvin and Taylor are now full-on dating, but just months ago he said he would left swipe her on Tinder because she's "the opposite of my type."

So why the change of heart? Our sources who are prominent in the DJ world say Calvin got to know Taylor through the Haim sisters, Taylor's best friends. Calvin and Haim have a hit song, "Pray to God," that was released earlier this month. He got to know her and liked her.

But our sources say Calvin is the best businessman among DJs and knows the cache of dating the biggest pop star in the world.  

They believe Calvin has developed feelings for Taylor, but they say he's wired for success and there's no hard dividing line separating his personal life from business. 

We feel a song.
