Live Nation Offers Refunds For England Concerts

5/24/2017 11:15 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Live Nation is sympathetic to people who bought tickets for concerts in England, offering them refunds if they're too scared to attend ... TMZ has learned.

Sources at Live Nation tell us refunds will be available for UK concerts featuring Katy Perry, Iron Maiden, KISS, Waka Flocka Flame, Robbie Williams, Phil Collins, Depeche Mode, and James Arthur. BTW, Senator Bernie Sanders also has a show scheduled at 02 Academy Brixton, and it's sold out.

Our sources say Live Nation has not made a decision on refunds for other countries, but they are having discussions at offices worldwide ... and they expect to come up with a policy soon.

The decision to refund tickets in England is partly because of the attack at the Ariana Grande concert and partly because the Prime Minister has made it clear ... another attack seems imminent.

One Live Nation source tells TMZ, "We've gotten about a thousand media calls but very few consumer calls asking for refunds."

Dani Mathers Convicted in Body Shaming Case

5/24/2017 11:02 AM PDT
Breaking News

Former Playboy Playmate Dani Mathers has a choice ... either go to jail or do some hard labor, as her punishment for secretly taking a pic of an elderly woman in a gym locker room and then shaming her on social media.

Mathers was in court Wednesday and copped a plea in her criminal invasion of privacy case. The judge told Mathers she could pick door #1 or door #2.

Door #1: 45 days in jail and 36 months probation.

Door #2: 30 days graffiti removal ... again with 36 months probation.

She chose door #2.

You'll recall Dani took a pic of a naked, 71-year-old woman at an LA Fitness and then posted the pic on Snapchat with caption, "If I can't unsee this then you can't either."

The judge didn't lecture Dani ... it was all business.

EXCLUSIVE

A piece of Kim Kardashian history is for sale ... the Beverly Hills home where Kris Humphries popped the question -- leading to their 72 day marriage -- is on the market for $5.5 million.

Didn't work out for the happy couple, but Kim -- who bought the 3,800 square foot Tuscan property for $3.4 million -- did make some changes when she sold it 3 years later for $3.6 mil.

The 5 bedroom, 4.5 bath place really looks like it's straight outta Italy. The patio has an outdoor fireplace, pool with mini waterfall, and a gazebo overlooking the immaculate landscaping.

As for Kim K nostalgia ... check out the salon-like room off the master suite. Really takes you back to the old Kim K days.

Josh and Matt Altman from "Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles" are handling the sale.

Ariana Grande Concerts Canceled at Least Through June 5

5/24/2017 10:42 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ariana Grande's concerts have been canceled until June 5 and maybe longer, until her team figures out how to address new security concerns.

Grande's management confirms the story TMZ broke, telling us, "The Dangerous Woman tour with Ariana Grande has been suspended until we can further assess the situation and pay our proper respects to those lost."

Ariana's team has cancelled the London O2 shows this week and all shows through her scheduled Switzerland concert a week from Monday.  

As we reported, Ariana is devastated by the terrorist bombing after her concert. She's currently with her mom in Boca Raton.

Here is the full statement from Ariana's management: "Due to the tragic events in Manchester the Dangerous Woman tour with Ariana Grande has been suspended until we can further assess the situation and pay our proper respects to those lost."

"The London O2 shows this week have been cancelled as well as all shows thru June 5 in Switzerland. We ask at this time that we all continue to support the city of Manchester and all those families affected by this cowardice and senseless act of violence."

"Our way of life has once again been threatened but we will overcome this together. Thank you."

Peyton Manning Downs 'Tennessee Whiskey' Belts Out Country Hit With Chris Stapleton

5/24/2017 11:26 AM PDT

Turns out Peyton Manning's voice is good for more than just yelling "Omaha," and we have video proof ... with the future Hall of Famer hitting the stage and going country with Chris Stapleton.

A post shared by Meg (@megangrace7) on

This all went down at the Red Rock in Tennessee, where Manning got up onstage during Chris' show and joined him for Stapleton's song, "Whiskey Red," and we gotta say, Manning wasn't half bad.

Peyton's showed off his pipes before, he duetted with Lee Brice last year for a rendition of "Rocky Top," but let's face it, that song is kinda like a lay up for Manning.

That's two times now, so, new career maybe.

Amber Portwood Meets with Vivid, Porn Talks Begin

5/24/2017 10:49 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ex-"Teen Mom" Amber Portwood is ready for the next stage of her career -- and it's looking like it could be in porn, because she's met with porn giant Vivid Entertainment.

Sources connected to negotiations tell us Amber and her boyfriend, Matt Baier, met with Vivid honcho Steven Hirsch in L.A. on May 8. We're told Hirsch had reached out to Amber in the past, and since she was already in town for the MTV Movie & TV Awards ... she decided to have the sit-down.

It's unclear if she's signed on the dotted line yet, but ya don't have to be a rocket scientist to know why Hirsch wanted this meeting. Vivid's made a bundle with its Farrah Abraham movies, and since Amber's always been one the most popular "Teen Mom" chicks ... it totally makes sense.

Amber and Matt tell us, "The meeting with Steven and Vivid was very professional and low key." They wouldn't say if a deal is done. Ditto for Hirsch ... who would only confirm he had the meeting.

Something tells us ... we've seen this movie before.


Scott Disick Having a Bella Good and Wet Time

5/24/2017 9:54 AM PDT

Scott Disick and Bella Thorne didn't wait long to pack on the PDA in Cannes -- after all, they have a lot of catching up to do with Kourtney Kardashian and her new guy.

Bella got soaking wet in the pool, fully clothed, then settled into Scott's lap Wednesday at their resort. They were also snuggling in a day bed.

The Lord's been hangin' with the young actress since last week, and decided to jet off to Cannes together Monday ... AFTER Kourt and Younes were already there.

We highly doubt any double dating, but doesn't mean they won't run into each other.

Kris Jenner Alleged Stalker Ordered to Stay Away for 3 Years

5/24/2017 9:48 AM PDT
Breaking News

Kris Jenner won't have to worry about an obsessed ex-security guard for a while ... he's been ordered to keep his distance for 3 years.

The judge signed off Wednesday morning on a permanent restraining order against Joshua Jacobs ... who was arrested for felony stalking at Kris' house earlier this month. As we reported, it was the third time he'd been busted trying to get to the house.

Kris immediately got a temporary restraining order, but today's ruling extends that protection for herself and her family. Jacobs remains in custody.

Jenner was not in court, but her attorney, Shawn Holley, tells us, "The Jenner and Kardashian families take safety very seriously, and will vigorously pursue all remedies available to them, both in criminal and civil court, to ensure they are protected."

Justin Bieber No Hablo Español During 'Despacito' Live

5/24/2017 8:47 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Justin Bieber's seemingly masterful Spanish singing on the #1 hit "Despacito" did not translate in a live performance ... unless we missed the "blah blah blah" lesson in Español class. 

The Biebs got on the mic Tuesday night at 1 OAK in NYC, where he tried singing along to Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's hot record -- which features Justin singing the hook in Spanish.

It appears Justin forgot the more intricate elements of the chorus, and by intricate we mean everything but "despacito."

The takeaway here -- Spanish is hard when it's not written down for you in a studio. 

Chris Cornell 'High, F***ed Up' During Last Performance

5/24/2017 8:06 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Chris Cornell was messed up during his Detroit concert ... hours before he committed suicide -- this according to a longtime confidant who was present and working the event.

Ted Keedick, who worked with Chris for the last decade as his house engineer and tour manager, tells TMZ, "Chris was out of character from note 1 of the show. I've never heard or seen him that way before, at least if we did not cancel a show."

Keedick says Chris seemed "high" and "f***ed up," but not depressed. In fact, Keedick says during sound check Chris was in good spirits. It's consistent with what Chris' widow says of her phone conversations with Chris before and after the show.

Vicky Cornell says Chris told her he had taken "an extra Ativan or two" and she was so alarmed she called hotel security to check on him. Chris' own security guy discovered the singer had hanged himself in his bathroom.

Keedick says Chris was off during the entire show, saying, "I'd never heard his voice that way before. He was having serious control problems."

Keedick was positioned in the middle of the audience with his mixing board, and at one point during the concert he was so concerned he phoned someone backstage and asked what was wrong with Chris.

As we reported, Chris had struggled with drug abuse for years, but his wife says he was clean when he died. Based on Keedick's account, it appears he fell off the wagon before his last concert.


Trump, Pope Smiley Face Frowny Face

5/24/2017 6:24 AM PDT

Donald Trump was all grins Wednesday when he met Pope Francis at the Vatican, but the Pope seemed ... well, pensive.

Pope Francis encouraged the Prez to be a peacemaker and Trump promised to heed the message.

Melania and Ivanka stoically looked on as they all posed for pics.

The meeting lasted 30 minutes and each had a translator.

The Pope gave Trump a sculptured olive tree, telling him it symbolized peace. The Pope followed up with this ... "It is my desire that you become an olive tree to construct peace."

For his part Trump gave Pope Francis a set of 5 first-edition books by Martin Luther King, Jr.

Barack Obama Rock Star in Italy

5/24/2017 7:07 AM PDT

Barack Obama and Justin Bieber have something in common ... they can't walk down a street in Italy without getting mobbed.

44 got the celeb treatment Italiano style Tuesday as he strolled the narrow streets of Bologna. People lined up to get a glimpse. He's been over there on vacay with Michelle, taking in the sights and hitting the links.

Seems even in the land of pasta and wine they've heard of Barack's baby whispering skills and it appears he hasn't lost his magic touch.
