Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow may have figured out the whole divorcing thing ... figured it out better than most, because they still genuinely seem to have affection -- if not love -- for each other.
Chris, Gwyneth and their 2 kids went to Katsuya in Brentwood for dinner Tuesday night. They left separately ... Gwyneth and the kids in an SUV, leaving Chris behind.
But the SUV drives a block from the restaurant and then stops. Chris sprints over to his family, and then you see a touch that tells a real story about the relationship that remains between the two.
For all of the warring divorce couples ... watch and learn.
Kicks BF to Curb
There's Only Room for 1 Star
10/22/2014 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Nicki Minaj has a message for her ex ... if you didn't wanna be a superstar so damn bad, you'd still be sleeping in my bed.
Sources connected with the former couple tell TMZ ... Nicki cut the relationship off -- after 14 years -- because he became uncontrollably jealous of her success ... success he wanted for himself.
We're told Nicki and Safaree had an arrangement -- she's the breadwinner and he's the backup singer/hype man/personal assistant. But we're told Safaree was getting sick of being in the background and had become increasingly hostile ... an emotion she reciprocated.
We hear the final straw was when Safaree didn't show up recently to one of Nicki's shows, leaving her scrambling for a hype man. She confronted him and he went crazy.
Breakup rumors spread this week when Safaree showed up in public with several of his Nicki tats covered up.
Looks like he's got a lot more work to do now.
Ready to Get Pricked
For a New Body Piercing
10/22/2014 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Jordin Sparks is embracing pain ... and this time it has nothing to do with ex-BF Jason Derulo -- instead she's finally worked up the nerve to get a bull ring piercing.
Maybe she was celebrating the single life -- or just looking for a new look -- but Jordin took a trip to T-Man Tattoo in Studio City last weekend to get a hole punched in her septum ... one of the more painful piercings you can get.
Our sources say it wasn't an easy decision -- in fact, Jordin initially left the shop ... and then came back when she felt brave enough.
We're told it ended up taking 2 attempts to get the former "American Idol" champ hooked up -- so they took $30 off the price for her trouble ... and her pain.
Gotta hand it to Jordin ... post break-up piercings beat post break-up tattoo makeovers. Always.
Hard Evidence She's Single
10/20/2014 1:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
If Nicki Minaj and her boyfriend are still together, then he's got a weird way of showing the love ... having 2 of his 3 Nicki tats covered up with new ink.
Check out the pics for yourself ... Safaree Samuels had some work done on his chest -- though it's unclear when -- and he clearly covered up Nicki's name/mug.
Not only that, but his forearm ink looks drastically faded as well.
Neither have commented on rumors of their breakup, but Nicki definitely hinted at one back in May when she tweeted "SINGLE N READY TO MINGLE."
At the time, sources told us it was just a temporary argument and that the 2 were still together.
But healthy couples don't typically deface their better half's face, do they?
Man, love hurts.

In fact, Electra and Rodman were both arrested in 1999 for allegedly battering each other during a domestic dispute -- but the charges were eventually dropped.
They divorced a short time later.
Calls Transsexual Talk Re: Bruce 'Silly'
10/20/2014 6:18 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
NBC News is HILARIOUS ... pretending to be above "tabloid" celebrity news and then not-so-coyly jumping into that pool.
Hoda Kotb interviewed Kris Jenner on "Today" Monday ... pretending to care about her new cookbook -- but you gotta hear how she transitions into transsexual talk. Hysterical.
It's also interesting. Kris calls reports about Bruce Jenner becoming a woman "silly" ... saying there have been rumors since the '70s. But when it came to our story about Kris being furious that Bruce is now dating her former BFF ... she pretends she doesn't know who he's dating. She does.
Nice cooking segment.

Bruce Jenner can't be contained ... well, not by his shirt anyway.
B.J. hit up Starbucks Saturday afternoon in Calabasas after a round of golf, and got all crazy -- untucking his shirt on the way in for a more casual look.
As we previously reported ... Bruce is dating one of Kris Jenner's best friends named Ronda Kamihira -- and we're told his ex-wife has been crying every night over it.
Bruce and his ponytail ... seem okay with the single life.
She Sobs Every Night
Over Bruce's New Date
10/18/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kris Jenner has been crying every night over Bruce Jenner's new date ... who happens to be Kris' former best friend for the last 20 years.
We're told Kris feels utterly betrayed by Ronda Kamihira ... who to this day has not said a word to her about seeing Bruce. Kris has seen photos of Bruce and Ronda in public, including the Elton John concert on Oct. 4th in L.A. She feels humiliated and played.
We're also told Kris has not confronted Bruce about Ronda -- and doesn't care if they're banging or not. She feels Bruce being out with Ronda on dates -- even casual ones -- given that Ronda was a family friend with whom they vacationed and shared holidays -- is just appalling.
One source said Kris is "torn apart and angry."
Dating Kris Jenner's Best Friend
10/17/2014 1:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Bruce Jenner is dating one of Kris Jenner's best friends ... TMZ has confirmed.
Our Jenner sources tell TMZ ... Bruce has hooked up with Ronda Kamihira ... a divorced, 51-year-old mother of 2.
We're told Kris is "extremely upset" that Bruce is dating Ronda, and -- as one source puts it -- "It really stings because Ronda never told Kris she started seeing Bruce."
And get this ... for years Ronda and the Jenners have been neighbors in Hidden Hills, CA, even spending holidays at each other's homes.
The daughters on both sides have become friends. Ronda's daughter, Spencer, took this pic with Kendall and posted it on her Twitter page.
A Jenner source tells us the talk within the family was that Ronda was weirdly becoming "Kris' single white female." The source says Ronda mimicked Kris right down to her hair.
This pic was taken at Staples Center in L.A., when Bruce and Ronda went to Elton John's concert.
And here's how awkward this is ... the pic (above) shows Ronda and Kris on vacation together in Dubai just a few years back.
Crosses Fiancee Off His Bucket List ... Permanently
10/17/2014 8:59 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
You can do a lot in one year with a porn star ... and Charlie Sheen ... enough so that the engagement is now off.
Charlie tells TMZ ... "Scotty and I had a great year together as we traveled the world and crossed a lot of things off our bucket list."
Sheen says it's more important right now for him to focus on his 5 kids ... and, we're guessing, keeping the peace with his exes.
TMZ broke the story ... Charlie got engaged to the ex-porn star last Valentine's Day in Hawaii ... Sheen called it true love.
But love stories don't always end with white picket fences. The good news -- no child support, no spousal support and he doesn't have to buy her a house.

... Says Gloria's Sister
10/17/2014 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Don't put a fork in Matt Barnes and Gloria Govan's marriage just yet ... 'CAUSE IT AIN'T OVER ... so says Gloria's sister Laura Govan -- who knows what it's like to be in a relationship with an NBA star.
Laura -- who has 4 kids with NBA star Gilbert Arenas -- was out in Calabasas when our photog asked if there was chance her sister would ever reconcile with Matt now that they've separated.
Peep the video -- it's clear Laura's a "glass half full" type of gal ... and explains why there's no doubt they'll be one happy couple again in no time.
Ray J's Dog
Boogati Back with His Bottom Bitch
After Battling Depression
10/17/2014 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Ray J and Princess Love have declared a truce in their bitter breakup and custody battle -- all for the sake of their children puppies.
Princess Love tells TMZ their pet Maltese, Boogati, is now back at home ... reunited with their 3 other dogs. She says Ray J showed mercy because he thought Boogati was depressed.
As we reported ... Ray J took Boogati with him when he broke up with Princess Love and moved out. She claimed the other dogs were constantly crying -- especially Coco ... because she missed the Boog man.
Apparently the feelings were mutual, since we're told Boogati wasn't eating -- but Princess says all the pups are good now ... and claims she'll let Ray visit with them whenever he wants.
Matt Barnes' Wife
Allegedly Forged NBA Star's Signature
... For Secret $150k Loan
10/16/2014 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Seems the "trust issues" in Matt Barnes' marriage may be coming to light ... because his estranged wife Gloria Govan has been accused of forging the NBA star's signature to take out a $150k loan ... this according to a lawsuit obtained by TMZ Sports.
The woman behind the lawsuit is Nina Rawls -- the widow of R&B legend Lou Rawls -- who claims Gloria approached her back in March and asked to borrow $150k for a TV project produced by Gloria and Matt's production company.
Rawls says she agreed -- but the loan had to be repaid in full just 2 MONTHS later. According to the suit, May came and went ... and Gloria (who stars on "Basketball Wives: LA") never ponied up the dough.
Eventually, Nina says Gloria ADMITTED that she forged Matt's signature on the loan docs in the first place. It's unclear if Matt ever knew about the loan in the first place ... but our sources tell us Barnes was completely in the dark about the alleged deal.
Now, Nina wants the full $150k back -- plus damages.
We called Matt and Gloria's reps for comment -- so far no word back.
