'BiP' Star Jenna Cooper 'Cheating' Texts Were Fabricated

10/15/2018 7:35 AM PDT
Breaking News

"Bachelor in Paradise" star Jenna Cooper is not a lying cheater out for fame ... this according to a forensic report.

Jenna had the forensic company digitally scrub her iPhone, iPad and iCloud backup for alleged text messages she sent saying she only got engaged to fellow 'BiP' contestant Jordan Kimball on the show to build Hollywood connections. The alleged texts -- sent to another man -- also said Jordan didn't mean anything to her and she had an off-camera boyfriend.

Screenshots of the texts first surfaced in August after the 'BiP' finale ... but Jenna's been on the warpath to clear her name, even going so far as to hire the forensic company.

Jenna's rep, Steve Honig, tells TMZ ... "A comprehensive forensic examination of Jenna’s devices by an independent third-party expert has definitively confirmed none of the text messages in question came from Jenna's phone."

Jenna's been trying to get Jordan to admit the texts are fake and accused him of dramatically changing his demeanor toward her when the cameras stopped rolling. She claims Jordan "let it be known there was only room for one celebrity in the relationship."

Amanda Stanton from 'Bachelor' Hits Beach with BF After Dom. Violence Arrest

9/17/2018 9:16 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Amanda Stanton and her boyfriend put on a united front during a beach outing ... not long after she was arrested for getting into a fight with him.

The 'Bachelor' and "Bachelor in Paradise" fan favorite hit up Laguna Beach Sunday with BF, Bobby Jacobs ... showing plenty of PDA. It's the first time we've seen them out together since Amanda's arrest last week in Vegas after a drunken post-bachelorette party incident with Bobby.

As we first reported ... security at the Encore was responding to a noise complaint when an apparently boozed-up Amanda tried to intervene, shoving Bobby in the process. We're told that was enough for security to call cops, who arrested Amanda for misdemeanor domestic battery.

According to the police report, obtained by TMZ, Bobby also claims Amanda started to hit him while he was in bed, argued for hours and at one point took the room's phone and swung it at him. Bobby also says Amanda tried kicking him and he tried pinning her down but he says she kept scratching and pinching his arms and body. Amanda had apparently been upset with Bobby 'cause he wasn't answering her calls.

A rep for Amanda told us it was all a misunderstanding ... calling the shove "playful."

No word if Amanda shoved Bobby into the Pacific but they definitely looked playful ... and unconcerned about her arrest.

Amanda Stanton from 'Bachelor' Arrested for Domestic Violence

EXCLUSIVE

9/13 -- A rep for Amanda tells TMZ that the whole event was a misunderstanding. Amanda had a few drinks and gave Bobby what she thought was a playful shove in front of hotel security, who then called police.

The rep says "Amanda is embarrassed and ashamed this happened and sincerely apologizes to hotel security and the Las Vegas Police Department," and no hard feelings for everyone doing their jobs.

'Bachelor' and "Bachelor in Paradise" fan favorite Amanda Stanton has been arrested for domestic battery after a drunken post-bachelorette party incident with her boyfriend ... TMZ has learned.  

Sources familiar with what went down tell us Stanton was partying with friends at The Encore for a co-ed bachelorette event. We're told Stanton's bf, Bobby Jacobs, was there too ... and everyone was celebrating in a room at the hotel.

Law enforcement tells us security came to the room for a noise complaint, and Bobby was talking to the guard. We're told that's when an apparently boozed up Amanda tried to intervene, and shoved Bobby in the process. 

We're told the shove was hard enough for security to call cops, who arrested Amanda for misdemeanor domestic violence. She was released Monday.

Sources close to Amanda tell us she and Bobby are still together, and they both think someone slipped something -- a drug, presumably -- into her drink.

Stanton was a fave on Ben Higgins' season of "The Bachelor" ... finishing 4th. She went on to appear on season 3 of "Bachelor in Paradise" and got engaged to Josh Murray, but things went south quickly.

We reached out to Bobby and Amanda ... so far, no word back.

'BiP' Star Grocery Store Joe I Ain't No Grocery Store Bitch ... But, I Am as Shy as on TV

8/28/2018 6:49 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Grocery Store Joe sure didn't seem to appreciate being called a bitch on "Bachelor in Paradise" -- but you might not be able to tell by how he defends himself here.

We got Joe Amabile Monday at LAX ahead of this week's first 'BiP' episode, which got teased with Leo Dottavio calling America's new favorite nice guy a "grocery store bitch." Normally, those would be fighting words, especially coming from someone as controversial as Leo ... but not so much with GSJ.

Sounds like our camera guy's more riled up about it than he was. Then again, Joe filmed that scene a while ago ... plus, he's a super sweet dude. And he's just as bashful as he is on TV ... like, seriously.

He does settle one score with us though ... premature noshing in the aisles. Tell us how you really feel, Joe.

Colton Underwood My New Dog's Home And Chowing on Chicken!!!

EXCLUSIVE

Colton Underwood's been united with his furry new roomie, Thor ... and the good boy's already making himself at home.

TMZ got video of the 2-year-old German Shepherd inside the 'Bachelorette' star's house Saturday ... hesitantly learning to go down the steps and meeting his new canine bro, Sniper.

The "goofball" also got to feast on some people food -- delicious rotisserie chicken.

We broke the story ... Thor was destined for the meat markets of Asia before the non-profit org Bunny's Buddies saved him, and Colton got involved to make it a happy ending for all.

1:30 PM PT -- They're officially bros now.

11:00 AM PT -- Thor is on his way to Colton!

Colton Underwood has a new roommate ... and it's an adorable one. 

The 'Bachelorette' star is the proud new owner of a 2-year-old German Shepherd rescue ... the dog was destined for the meat markets of Asia before a non-profit org saved him and brought him to San Diego.

Colton made a donation to Bunny's Buddies, and they set him up with the pup. The ex-NFL stud was united with his new friend Saturday and changed his name from Tor to Thor.

That was a superhero move by Colton. His other dog, Sniper, will be happy too. 

Colton Underwood Blake's 'Bachelor' Material!! Buuuuut, So is ...

8/7/2018 4:46 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Colton Underwood thinks Becca Kufrin's 'Bachelorette' runner-up has what it takes to slip into "The Bachelor" tux next -- but he also thinks he ain't that special.

We got the ex-NFL stud, and famed virgin, Tuesday in Venice and he said Blake has a really good shot, especially after the emotional breakup scene ... which he considers authentic, raw emotion.

Not sure if Colton's vote of confidence carries much weight though, because he says all the other fan faves from this season -- and even an Arie-like old-timer -- are right there in the mix too. Fact is, Colton's playing coy for his top pick -- even when it comes to himself. 

BTW, if you were wondering if Colton's still a virgin after shooting the upcoming "Bachelor in Paradise" season ... we got your answer.

'Bachelor' Star Corinne Olympios Will You Accept This Rose-Butt?

8/5/2018 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Corinne Olympios is giving all her haters a quick reminder about why Nick Viall handed her so many roses during "The Bachelor."

The self-described villain of Nick's season was recently doing her best baddie impression on the hot sand of Venice Beach, CA. Corinne effectively showed off several sides of her America did NOT get to see during her most recent TV appearance -- y'know when Sacha Baron Cohen kinda humiliated her.

The ole cream on the boobs trick wasn't enough to convince Nick, but these pics might help her get plenty of other suitors.

Enjoy!

Corinne Olympios Sacha Duped Me into 'Grenade' PSA ... I Just Wanted Out!

7/23/2018 11:28 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Corinne Olympios says her interview with Sacha Baron Cohen -- where she advocates grenades for kids -- is no reflection on her character, instead it only proves he strong-arms folks into looking stupid.

The 'Bachelor' alum was fully duped on Sunday's episode of Sacha's show, "Who Is America?," If you missed it ... she made crazy claims about saving Ebola-afflicted people in Africa, and pitched a bogus ad endorsing kids being weaponized.

It was NOT a good look for Corinne, who seemed willing to say and do anything for a buck. It's especially bad because Corinne was accused of lying during her 'BiP' controversy ... but Corinne tells us it's BS to conflate 'Bachelor' with what Sacha did to her. 

The TV star says she was essentially held hostage, separated from her phone and her manager. She says when she questioned the script, producers told her the sooner she finished ... the sooner she could leave.

Robby Hayes on Lincoln Adim 'The Bachelorette' Asks About Arrests ... How Did They Miss This?

6/14/2018 7:27 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

JoJo Fletcher's runner-up on her season of "The Bachelorette" can't figure out how Lincoln Adim got on the show, because the screening process probes for past crimes.

We got Robby Hayes Wednesday in Venice and asked if 'Bachelorette' producers need to do better background checks on their contestants ... in light of the fact Adim's sex crime arrest 2 years ago didn't raise any flags.

As we reported ... Adim had been convicted of and sentenced for indecent assault and battery days before Becca Kufrin's season premiered in May. He'd been accused of groping and grinding on a woman during a 2016 cruise. He must now register as a sex offender.

Robby is dumbfounded on how Lincoln slipped through the cracks. He's been through the process, and told us the pointed questions every contestant has to answer ... including the ones about arrests. He says Becca deserved to know about Lincoln and producers need to tighten up the background checks.

We broke the story ... Warner Bros., the studio behind the show, says Lincoln lied through his teeth, and the company that runs background checks missed his arrest.

Scheana Marie Look What the Tide Washed Up ... 'BiP' Hottie Robby Hayes!

5/23/2018 9:21 AM PDT

"Vanderpump Rules" star Scheana Marie's bathing suit says it best -- now that she's hooking up with another hot reality TV star ... in Hawaii -- yeah, "Living My Best Life" definitely applies here.

Scheana and "Bachelor in Paradise'' star Robby Hayes were strolling through the surf Tuesday in Oahu. Rumors started to swirl they were hookin' up back in March, but they both claimed they were just good friends. We'd say VERY good friends, based on these shots.

Scheana had previously been linked to Rob Valletta after her divorce from Mike Shay.

One thing Robby and Scheana can't deny -- they look good together.

'BIP' Alum Josh Murray Will You Accept This Kiss?

3/14/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Josh Murray is living proof -- you can take a bachelor out of "Bachelor in Paradise" ... but he's not going to stop looking for love.

The ex-'BIP' star -- known for being engaged to 2 former 'Bachelorettes' -- still has full confidence in his pick-up game, based on this vid of him at a bar in Milledgeville, GA late Monday night. Problem is ... it looks like he's pretty rusty.

Josh was in town hosting a hospital charity event with the Children's Miracle Network earlier in the evening. He actually posed for a photo with the woman who was also a guest at the event.

Of course, the pic was taken before Josh started shooting his shot.

Sources close to Murray tell us they hit it off at the charity, and he took her out afterward to show her a good time. At the end of the night, though, it was the friendzone for Josh.

We can see that.

Corinne Olympios Arie Luyendyk Jr. Is 'Repulsive'

3/7/2018 6:53 AM PST

You know Arie Luyendyk Jr. has earned the Worst Bachelor Ever title when one of the franchise's most hated villains is throwing major shade his way.

We got Corinne Olympios leaving Craig's Tuesday night in WeHo with Jonathan Cheban, and when we asked her thoughts on Arie, she didn't exactly have nice things to say. Corinne is notorious for her own "Bachelor in Paradise" sex scandal, which debatably might've been topped by Arie dumping winner Becca Kufrin and weeks after proposing to runner-up Lauren Burnham while cameras were rolling.

Arie tried to do damage control on a live special Tuesday night called 'After the Final Rose,' but that didn't work. It takes time, just ask Corinne.

As for Becca ... she was named on the finale as the next 'Bachelorette' so she wins.
