Ariana Grande, Pete Davidson You Get the Ring ... I Get the Pig

10/16/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson have called it quits, and that usually means dividing up the pots and pans, or in their case the pet pig and a super expensive engagement ring.

Sources close to Ariana tell us she's already returned the nearly $100k engagement ring Davidson gave her back in June. The ring -- a 3.03 carat diamond set in platinum -- was a one of a kind, made specifically for Grande, and took weeks to complete. We're told there was no struggle over who'd keep the ring. He bought it in contemplation of marriage, and she was quick to fork it over.

Piggy Smallz -- the couple's teacup pig they adopted last month -- became a signature of their relationship ... in fact, Davidson got a tattoo of Smallz on his torso shortly after she became part of their family.

Here's the thing. Ariana bought the pig and it was really hers from the get-go, so she's keeping it ... again, no fight over the porker. 

TMZ broke the story ... Ariana and Pete ended their engagement over the weekend. We're told the death of Ariana's former boyfriend, Mac Miller, was a breaking point for the couple's relationship ... and the split was a long time coming. 

George Lopez Trump Fight Busts Out at Hooters

10/16/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

George Lopez had a terrible time at Hooters, thanks to one giant boob who goaded him into a fight ... and TMZ has the video.

The incident went down Sunday night in New Mexico, where George had spent the week filming the movie "Walking with Herb." As you can see ... the guy was lying in wait for George when he started recording.

That's when you hear the guy say, "Here comes my boy, George," and then all hell breaks loose. You get a glimpse of George grabbing the back of the guy's neck.

A source close to George tells TMZ the guy had been in the comedian's face all night, making pro-Trump comments and yelling "MAGA." George finally had it and went HAM.

We're told there were no real injuries and cops weren't called. It's no secret ... George's not down with Trump. 

Trump Painting on '60 Minutes' Slim Trump Means Fat Sales!!!

10/16/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

President Trump's painting featuring him with Grand Old Party presidents set the internet ablaze during his "60 Minutes" interview -- but it also lined the painter's wallet with cash. 

During 45's interview Sunday night, a lot of people noticed Trump had hung up a fantasy painting on a wall somewhere in the White House. It shows Trump drinking what appears to be a non-alcoholic beverage with guys like Abraham Lincoln, Richard Nixon, the Bushes, Ronald Reagan, Teddy Roosevelt and other Republican presidents ... who all got booze nearby.

Many art aficionados mocked 45's vanity and called the painting "tacky" and "trashy" -- and also ridiculously and slimmingly flattering. There are, however, fans ... 'cause Missouri-based artist Andy Thomas tells us business has been booming in the 24 hours since his artwork aired on TV.

Andy says he and his wife woke up Monday morning with 25 new orders for prints of his "Republican Club" painting. They typically get only 3 orders a day. He tells us 60 additional orders came rolling in an hour later.

It isn't just the GOP boys getting love -- Andy says prints of another painting he did depicting Obama and famous Democratic presidents have been flying off his digital shelves from his website.

BTW ... the Trump painting and others range from $59 to $1,700.

Cardi also sported the new bling Saturday night when she performed at Drake's concert. All in all ... we're told Offset dropped over six figures. And, that's just the tip of the birthday iceberg. Remember ... Offset also gave Cardi a Lambo earlier this month.

No word yet if Cardi's sexual birthday request was fulfilled.

'Family Matters' Star Darius McCrary Denies Child Abuse ... My Ex 'Concocted' Story

10/16/2018 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Family Matters" star Darius McCrary says it's absurd to think he dislocated his 2-year-old daughter's arm -- as his estranged wife claims -- and suggests his daughter was coached into faking the injury. 

We spoke to Darius after his estranged wife, Tammy Brawner, filed docs claiming he dislocated little Zoey's arm in March 2018 while attempting to take her to the bathroom. Zoey was reportedly diagnosed with Nursemaid’s Elbow ... a common childhood injury where the child's elbow partially dislocates.

She believes Darius is to blame, but he told us all that happened when he picked up Zoey at the time was she said, "Ow." He acknowledges Tammy took Zoey to a hospital, but says he saw evidence she was fine ... and revealed his conspiracy theory about his ex. 

Khabib's Manager Conor Doesn't Deserve Rematch ... 'He's a Quitter'

10/16/2018 12:10 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

QUITTERS DON'T DESERVE REMATCHES ... so says Khabib Nurmagomedov's manager who says Conor McGregor fought so poorly at UFC 229 that he doesn't deserve another crack at the champ. 

"This guy, he quit," Ali Abdelaziz tells TMZ Sports ... "How are we gonna give a guy a rematch? He's a bitch."

Remember, Khabib dominated the fight -- and ultimately forced Conor to tap out from a brutal neck crank in the 4th round where it looked like Khabib was gonna rip CM's head clean off. 

But, that doesn't mean a rematch won't happen -- after all, Ali says he's a businessman and would happily allow Conor to get his ass kicked again ... if the price is right. 

Or, as Ali puts it -- "[Conor] is a prostitute."

There's more ... Ali also has some strong words for Conor's coach, John Kavanagh -- a guy he's been beefing with for months. 

Long story short, Ali says John can talk all the trash he wants ... but he better be prepared to back it up if they ever meet in the streets. 

"If I'm inside an arena under regulations, I'm gonna respect the rules. But, outside the arena, there are no rules for me," Ali said. 

"But, if you think you're gonna talk crazy and make fun of my religion? Imma catch you outside."

10/15/2018 4:42 PM PDT

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are all smiles Down Under on the heels of their pregnancy announcement ... but royal watchers might say something's missing.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex hit up Australia Monday on the first day of their royal tour there ... no doubt still sporting wide grins after Kensington Palace announced earlier in the day they're expecting baby no. 1.

The former "Suits" star is due sometime next spring ... around their one-year anniversary. We know what everyone wants to see, but it just ain't there yet -- the royal baby bump.

Harry and Meghan -- who will be Down Under for the next 16 days -- started their tour at Admiralty House and a meeting with Governor-General Peter Cosgrove. He's no fool, Cosgrove had some Aussie themed baby gifts ... a pair of baby Ugg boots and a stuffed kangaroo.

As we reported ... Victoria is the odds-on favorite name, at 8/1, if it's a girl. Leading boy names are Albert/Arthur/Philip ... all at 10/1. Remember to bet responsibly.

Tara Reid Removed from Flight ... Bitched About Wrong Seat, Pillow

10/15/2018 4:21 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Tara Reid flew into a rage on a flight, shortly before takeoff ... prompting the captain to toss her, and her little dog, off the plane.

The incident went down Monday afternoon on Delta Flight 613 from LAX to NYC. Witnesses tell us Tara was pissed and loudly complained about being given the wrong seat. She later bitched about not getting a pillow. Flight attendants tried diffusing the situation ... but it was too little, too late.

We're told the pilot -- after pushing back from the gate -- announced he was turning around because of a customer service issue. In the video, you can see Tara being told she had to go. Cops were not called and Tara complied ... deplaning with her dog.

Tara's side of the story is she thought she had a window seat and was upset that wasn't the case. Further, she says she was cramped in her seat because the woman in front of her had reclined.

A Delta spokesperson tells us the flight eventually took off for NYC after a short delay. Tara boarded an alternate flight. 

Paul Allen Microsoft Co-Founder Dead at 65

10/15/2018 3:13 PM PDT
Breaking News

Paul Allen, the billionaire who co-founded Microsoft with Bill Gates in 1975 is dead.

Allen succumbed to non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. He died Monday afternoon in his hometown of Seattle.

Allen, whose wealth was estimated north of $20 billion, announced 2 weeks ago his cancer had returned after 9 years in remission.

Allen and Gates, both college dropouts, hatched the idea for Microsoft in Albuquerque. They designed software for the yet-to-explode personal computer revolution.

The 2 men met when they were teenage students at Lakeside School outside Seattle. They became fast friends and bonded over their love of computers. The two would go "dumpster diving" for computer program code. Allen, who dropped out of Washington State, convinced Gates to bail from Harvard.

Allen is the one who came up with the name -- Micro-Soft. 

The company moved to Bellevue, Washington in 1979. He was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in 1983 and resigned shortly thereafter, but still was an active member of the board until 2000.

Allen bought the Seattle Seahawks back in 1996, 8 years after buying the Portland Trail Blazers. He also bought the Seattle Sounders, part of Major League Soccer, with business partners including Drew Carey.

Allen was a huge music fan, especially of Jimi Hendrix, and founded The Experience Music Project Museum in Seattle. 

Paul donated more than $2 billion to various charities.

Allen was never married and had no children.

Paul's family says, "For all the demands on his schedule, there was always time for family and friends.  At this time of loss and grief for us -- and so many others -- we are profoundly grateful for the care and concern he demonstrated everyday."

Paul was 65. RIP. 

President Trump Take That, Stormy!! Defamation Lawsuit Tossed

10/15/2018 4:02 PM PDT
Breaking News

Stormy Daniels is taking an "L" in court in her legal war with President Trump -- a judge just dismissed her defamation suit against him.

Stormy had sued the Prez for saying she lied about the mysterious man she claims threatened her in 2011 to stop talking about Trump. She had even released a sketch of the man ... which Trump immediately shot holes in on social media.

He tweeted, "A sketch years later about a nonexistent man. A total con job, playing the Fake News Media for Fools (but they know it)!"

Monday, a federal judge tossed the suit, describing the tweet as "rhetorical hyperbole" against a political adversary. The court said it would be an unreasonable standard if politicians could sue every time an opponent fired verbal jabs.

It's interesting because ... the judge is characterizing Stormy as a politician. In the rule, he wrote ... Stormy had tried to "publicly present herself as a political adversary to [Trump]." 

Stormy's lawsuit seeking to nullify the so-called "hush agreement" with Trump is still active.

Her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, plans to appeal the dismissal. If that's unsuccessful, Stormy will have to pay Trump's attorney fees.

Slash Bans Perla From Their Son's Show ... She Says She's Going

10/15/2018 3:35 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Slash is slamming the door on his ex-wife, Perla Ferrar ... blocking her from their son's huge Hollywood performance -- opening for Slash -- but it looks like she's totally ignoring the ban.

Sources close to Perla tell TMZ ... the Guns 'n Roses rocker banned her from attending the Tuesday night gig at the Hollywood Palladium -- 16-year-old London's band, Classless Act, will warm up the crowd before Slash takes the stage.

We're told someone from Slash's camp reached out to Perla and told her she wouldn't be able to attend. The bad blood between them is nothing new -- they just settled a drawn-out, contentious divorce that ended with him having to shell out serious gwap.

Despite the stay-away notice ... Perla said Monday she was planning to be at the show. She said on social media, "Can’t wait to see my baby boy London open for his father at this historical event tomorrow night! #icouldntbemoreproud."

Unclear if Slash is going to take more drastic steps to keep her out. We've reached out to his camp, but no word back yet. 

Margot Robbie Her Sharon Tate Game is Strong ... In Turtleneck, White Skirt

10/15/2018 2:44 PM PDT

Margot Robbie's been in full Sharon Tate mode while filming Quentin Tarantino's new Manson flick ... and shots like these show just how strong a resemblance she bears to the '60s actress.

QT's leading star for "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" was on set Monday in L.A. getting ready to shoot a scene, decked out in a black turtleneck, white skirt and matching go-go boots.

We don't have to tell you how much she looks like Sharon, we'll just show you. Here's a photo of Sharon with her husband, Roman Polanski, in 1968 ... a year before she and 4 others were brutally murdered by the Manson family. 

Sharon was 8 1/2 months pregnant at the time she was killed in '69. Margot's already shot scenes with her faux pregnancy belly

If her acting is anywhere near as spot-on as her look is -- and Sharon's sister indicated to us earlier this year that it is -- then we're almost certainly in for some Oscar-worthy work.
