Britney Spears' ex-boyfriend David Lucado is desperate to have at least one last convo with her -- but Brit's entire team, led by big daddy Jamie Spears, is blocking him from contacting her ... TMZ has learned.
David is telling friends he and Britney were not "100% together" a few weeks ago when he was videotaped dancing and making out with a girl -- and he wants to explain himself, but he's running into a brick wall in the form of Team Brit.
Britney's camp tells us David won't be getting through because he's persona non grata at her show in Las Vegas, at her home in Thousand Oaks, CA ... and his phone number's been blocked.
We're told David never heard about the break up directly from Britney ... and he wants to have that talk, just in case he still has a slim shot. Our Spears sources say that's exactly why he's getting shut out.

Screwed By Horse
At Equestrian Show
8/29/2014 10:32 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Bad news for Mary-Kate Olsen at a big equestrian show in NY this week -- when her horse refused to jump during one of the events ... leaving her with a big fat zero on the score sheet.
It all went down at the 39th Annual Hampton Classic Horse Show -- where the 28-year-old former "Full House" actress was attempting to show off her talents in the saddle.
But according to multiple reports, her brown horse (named Uniek) wasn't in the jumping mood -- and ruined the run.
Don't worry ... MKO got on another horse (named Swagger) who seemed more up for the challenge.
As for Olsen's twin sister -- she has yet to be seen at the event.
Luckily she didn't fall off the horse and get amnesia this time.
Skipping Donnie & Jenny's Wedding

If you're looking for Mark Wahlberg this weekend, don't go to Donnie Wahlberg and Jenny McCarthy's wedding -- TMZ has learned he won't be there, and we're told it's because he and his wife aren't fans of the bride.
According to multiple Wahlberg sources, Mark is not as close with Donnie and Jenny as Jenny has made it seem. Or at least, not with Jenny. We're told Mark's wife Rhea did not like a recent interview Jenny gave with Howard Stern where she talked about her relationship with Mark.
We're told brother Bobby won't be at the NYC wedding either ... and ditto for mama W, but that's because she doesn't fly.
We contacted Mark, and one of his reps told us he wasn't attending because he needs to be at a birthday party for his daughter Ella today in L.A. Her 11th b-day is actually Tuesday, but Mark will be filming that day in Boston.
Our sources say there's absolutely bad blood with Jenny.
For what it's worth ... brother Paul will be in attendance. More cake for him.

Here ye, here ye ... Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union are swapping "I dos" today in a famous MOATED CASTLE hidden away in Miami, FL ... TMZ Sports has learned.
The place is called "Chateau Artisan" -- considered one of the coolest pieces of property in the country ... and it's also where Birdman shot his 2010 music video for "Fire Flame."
Dwyane and Gabby have been going to extreme lengths to make sure their wedding is super private ... which is why this ultra-guarded estate PROTECTED BY A MOAT appealed to the couple.
We broke the story ... the couple is making their guests sign confidentiality agreements -- and have also banned social media from the event.
As for the property -- we're talkin' 19,000 square feet, 8 bedrooms, 7.5 baths ... and sits on 14 acres.
Sources tell us workers have been on the property for the past couple of weeks making sure the place looks PERFECT for the couple's big day.
And this might be all you'll see ... unless someone at the party DARES to tweet.

'Real H'wives' Russell Armstrong
Dad Feuding with Coroner
My SON WAS MURDERED!
8/30/2014 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Former "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Russell Armstrong's dad thinks his son's death in 2011 wasn't a suicide -- he believes it was murder, and he claims Taylor Armstrong won't help him prove it.
According to court docs obtained by TMZ ... Louie Armstrong is asking the court to force the L.A. County Coroner's office to fork over Russell's autopsy pics, which he plans to have checked out by his own forensic specialist.
As we previously reported ... Russell's family hired a private detective after his suicide in 2011 -- because they were convinced he was killed.
Armstrong seems to think Taylor would have better luck obtaining the photos, since she was Russell's next of kin at the time of his death. In the docs, he says she refuses to assist his efforts.
We reached out to Taylor. So far, no word back.

BEFORE Filming Begins
8/29/2014 4:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
A contestant on the new FOX reality show "Utopia" has already managed to get herself kicked off... BEFORE cameras start rolling.
FOX and Talpa (the production co.) producers say Andrea Cox did not enter the "Utopia" with the other 14 competitors today ... "due to violation of production policies. Replacement details will be announced." The show began Friday afternoon on a livestream.
Production sources tell us Cox recently figured out a way to contact other contestants -- known as "pioneers" on the show -- during a period when they were all supposed to be sequestered from each other.
The show features 15 "pioneers" who have to reboot their own society from scratch on a private piece of land, and they have a full year to do it. The TV debut is Sept. 7 on FOX.
Cox can watch from home.
Brett Ratner Sued
'Hercules' Rager Left Me a Bloody Mess ...
Says Party Guest
8/29/2014 4:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
"Hercules" director Brett Ratner is being sued by a woman who went to an after party at his Beverly Hills mansion ... and left with a bloodied leg and a sliced Achilles tendon.
Lauryn Flynn -- a celeb stylist who says she's worked with Kate Bosworth, Eva Mendes and Kristen Stewart -- was at the party Brett threw July 24 after the Hercules premiere. She says she was asked to take off her shoes as she entered the home.
During the party, Flynn says she decided to go downstairs into the basement where a DJ was spinning for 100-200 people. According to the docs, obtained by TMZ, Flynn says someone decided to start dancing on a small glass table. You know what happened next.
Flynn says the table shattered, launching glass shards "like bullets across the room." She says she looked down and saw a pool of blood around her feet ... she realized her Achilles tendon had been cut.
In the docs, Flynn says she thinks a decision was made to NOT call 911 because it would cause bad publicity for Brett. Instead she went to the hospital in an Uber. She says she had to get 87 stitches.
Flynn says a friend told her later that Brett had said, "People get hurt here all the time. Just clean it up."
She says she's been unable to work ... and has no idea when she'll be able to again. She's suing for unspecified damages.
