'ANTM' Bello Sanchez My Roommate from Hell Threatened to Cry 'Rape'

5/7/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE


Former "America's Next Top Model" contestant Bello Sanchez thought he'd make some dough renting out his guest room, but says he's ended up with a nightmare roommate.

Bello says he rented the spare bedroom in his North Hollywood apartment to a woman named Shengyu Li who broke his furniture, and threw rotten food on his balcony and his cats. 

Things got so bad he claims Shengyu even threatened to scream rape. He says he called cops after one of her outbursts, and they suggested Bello get a restraining order -- so he did.

Now, a judge has ordered Shengyu to stay 100 yards away from Bello and his car ... which creates an issue, since they're roommates. The judge said Bello will have to go through a different court to kick her out.

'Survivor' Outing 'ANTM' Alum Backs Zeke Trans Has Nothing to Do with His Game

4/15/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Transgender model Isis King is taking a strong stance in support of 'Survivor' contestant Zeke Smith after his televised outing, because she went through the same thing on "America's Next Top Model."

Isis was the first transgender contestant on 'ANTM' in 2008. She was outed on TV, and some rival models refused to acknowledge her transition. Tyra later funded her reassignment surgery.

Isis says Jeff Varner put unfair pressure on Zeke, especially because his being trans had NOTHING to do with winning or losing 'Survivor.'

She did say there's ONE situation where it's relevant, and we highly doubt it applies to tribal council.

3/5/2017 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Former "America's Next Top Model" contestant Bello Sanchez says he was raped in a Paris nightclub, but police refused to properly investigate due to his race and sexuality.

Bello tells TMZ ... he was at Le Rouge nightclub on January 30 when he was assaulted and raped by a man in a bathroom stall. Bello claims police conducted an incomplete rape testing immediately after the assault, and didn't get a proper rape kit until an advocacy group stepped in ... 72 hours later.

Bello, who was on cycle 22 of 'ANTM,' firmly believes police discriminated against him -- and he hopes going public will prompt a full investigation.

Krislian Rodriguez got her walking papers quickly on season 23, after Rita slammed her for "oozing sex" ... a weird comment given that's what models generally do.  

There was also this ... at one point during the competition, Rita whispered to a fellow judge, "I just think we're making a mistake." Some people on the set felt Rita was talking about Krislian.

Rita and Calvin dated in 2013 and 2014 ... we're told Calvin ended it. A short time later he started dating Krislian after meeting her in his music video.

Tyra Banks Selling Fierce Bev Hills Pad For $6.5 MIllion

6/2/2016 9:50 AM PDT

Tyra Banks is slashing the price of her Beverly Hills home by a cool million after not being able to sell the place for months.

The former "America's Next Top Model" host is selling her Spanish-style mansion for $6.5 million. It's been on the market since September, when she listed it for $7.75 mil. It's not a huge loss, considering she bought the pad for only $3 million.

Tyra's expanded the family so maybe she's looking for a bigger pad -- although this one has 4 bedrooms and 7 baths.

There's also a pool and one of those garages that's been converted into a gym, plus lots of outdoor nooks with fountains for entertaining. Surprisingly, no catwalk.

Ariana Grande Hot Guy from 'Into You' Music Video ... I'm No Big Sean!

5/26/2016 9:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ariana Grande fans can kill all the buzz her new music video, "Into You," is about Big Sean ... so says the smoking hot guy who played her love interest.

We got former "America's Next Top Model" star Don Benjamin at LAX Wednesday and asked him about all the comparisons fans have been making between Sean and him.

Many believe the video is about their breakup, especially since Ariana started dating her backup dancer, Ricky, after ending things with Sean.

Don has a different theory -- but keep in mind, Don still seems a little hypnotized by making out with Ariana in the video. Not that we blame him.

EXCLUSIVE

Karrueche Tran had a slip of the tongue ... nearly letting the cat out of the bag about her rumored turn as an “America’s Next Top Model" judge -- or at least it appears that way.

Our photog caught Chris Brown's ex at Hollywood & Highland and asked if she'd be a regular when producers bring back the show sans Tyra Banks and J. Alexander. She double clutches on her answer ... so hard to tell if she's in like Flynn or still waiting.

You gotta watch ... there's no smizing without loose lips. Karrueche knows.

EXCLUSIVE

"America's Next Top Model" judge Nole Marin is being sued by a couple of models who claim he's more like "America's Top Swindler."

Devon White, who models for Yves Saint Laurent, claims in a new lawsuit, Marin booked him for gigs but only made small cash payments so he could buy food and other necessities. When he asked for his money, he says he got nothing but excuses.

The best excuse, according to the lawsuit ... a booking agent who is also suing Marin claims when he tried to collect his salary, Marin emailed him and said he was being treated for gout and needed extra time.

Another model, Iana Khanashevich, claims her primary language is Russian and he used English to screw her over. She says she's owed thousands.
