Kim Kardashian and Rita Ora ended up on the same flight out of Los Angeles Monday, which wouldn't be a big deal ... until you remember Kim has MAJOR BEEF with Rita!!!
As TMZ first reported, Kim still blames Rita for her bad breakup with Rob Kardashian ... which she considers the cause of a lot of his problems since then.
Things are still so bad between them ... Kim refused to sit near Rita at the VMAs.
Rita arrived about 30 minutes before Kim -- who was with Kanye West and North -- but they probably ended up in first class together.
Power up the noise-cancelling headphones.

Kim Kardashian gave Rita Ora the cold shoulder at the VMAs last Sunday -- refusing to sit near her -- and sources close to the family say it's because Kim blames her for screwing with Rob Kardashian's head.
We're told Kim arrived at the awards show and discovered her seat was just a couple away from Ora's. Not wanting any drama ... she asked producers to find her a different seat. We're told she wasn't a diva, she just didn't want to have to be social with Rita.
Sources close to the Kardashians tell us the family still blames Ora for some of Rob's issues ... since his ugly breakup with her in 2012.
VMA producers had to scramble, but ultimately they found a seat for Kim ... with Kendall and Kylie.

Britney Spears' ex-boyfriend David Lucado is desperate to have at least one last convo with her -- but Brit's entire team, led by big daddy Jamie Spears, is blocking him from contacting her ... TMZ has learned.
David is telling friends he and Britney were not "100% together" a few weeks ago when he was videotaped dancing and making out with a girl -- and he wants to explain himself, but he's running into a brick wall in the form of Team Brit.
Britney's camp tells us David won't be getting through because he's persona non grata at her show in Las Vegas, at her home in Thousand Oaks, CA ... and his phone number's been blocked.
We're told David never heard about the break up directly from Britney ... and he wants to have that talk, just in case he still has a slim shot. Our Spears sources say that's exactly why he's getting shut out.

Dad Secretly Purchased 'Cheating' BF Video
8/29/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The incriminating video showing Britney Spears' now ex-boyfriend cheating on her is now owned by none other than Britney's dad ... TMZ has learned.
TMZ broke the story ... a video has surfaced of David Lucado dancing with and kissing a woman a couple of weeks ago. A rep for Jamie Spears tells TMZ ... when Jamie got wind of the video he contacted the agency that was selling it and swiftly coughed up a SUBSTANTIAL amount of money to secure it.
We're told Jamie -- who has been Britney's conservator for over 6 years -- then called Britney and told her he had something to show her ... and it was important. When Brit saw the evidence that was all she needed ... she immediately declared the relationship over.
Jamie's rep tells us he took the action to protect his daughter from David and from the embarrassment of the video going public.
Jamie's rep says the video is under lock and key and will never be seen again.
The wild card -- we don't know if the "other woman" who secretly shot the video made other copies, but Jamie's rep tells TMZ in no uncertain terms ... if anybody posts or publishes the video he will sue them for copyright infringement.
Britney posted an Instagram video Thursday night ... saying she was having a "really, really sh***y" day."

Britney Spears just dumped her boyfriend of 18 months ... after finding out there's a video of him cheating on her that's being shopped around Hollywood.
We're told David Lucado is seen in the video making out with a woman and dancing with her. It looks like they're in someone's living room. We're told the video was shot in early August.
When we called Lucado ... a rep told us, "David is very, very in love with Britney. This is unfortunate and he hopes that it all works out."
Well, it didn't. We called Britney's camp for comment, and we were told her father Jamie wanted to say something about it, but wanted to tell Britney first. It appears as soon he told her ... she broke up with David.
She just tweeted, "Ahhhh the single life!"

Divorcing After 35 Years
Split on Money, United About Son
8/27/2014 12:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Neil Young is bailing on his wife after over 35 years of marriage, but he's not turning his back on their son ... an adult with special needs.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer filed to divorce singer-songwriter Pegi Young, citing irreconcilable differences. They got hitched back in 1978, and separated this past April.
In his divorce docs, Young makes no mention of paying Pegi alimony ... but says they've agreed that both will continue to support their adult son, Ben, who has cerebral palsy. (Neil actually has two adult kids with CP ... the other is from a previous relationship.)
Pegi wants more than that ... in addition to child support, she's filed docs seeking spousal support.

On 'America's Got Talent'

It seems Nick Cannon is making his break-up with Mariah Carey official ... 'cause he appeared on "America's Got Talent" Tuesday night sans wedding ring.
Cannon was hosting a live episode of the show and his lack of wedding ring was extremely noticeable ... especially since he normally sports a pretty big sparkler.
We got Mariah out earlier this week ... and the 44-year old diva was also walking around without a wedding ring -- only she replaced the expensive hardware with her signature butterfly ring.

Mariah and Nick
Absence Makes the Heart Fonder
But Not That Fond

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are actually getting along -- way better than when they were together and loathed each other -- but TMZ has learned there is NO chance of a reconciliation.
TMZ first reported ... the divorce is a "done deal" and the couple has been separated since May.
We're told they are not only on good terms -- primarily for the sake of their kids -- they even went to dinner Friday in Tribeca and shockingly no one even noticed.
It's a big improvement from 6 months ago, when there was so much contempt they literally could not be in the same room together.
We're told it's all about the kids ... they're both committed to making the divorce as easy as possible on them. But -- let's just say one side tells us -- they will NEVER get back together.
