"Shahs of Sunset" producers are adding more sex and drama for the upcoming 4th season ... by hiring a new chick ... who's trying to remarry her ex-husband.
TMZ broke the story ... Lilly Ghalichi was 86'd from the show and now we've learned she's been replaced by Asifa Mirza -- a 32-year-old graduate school student living a pampered life courtesy of her retired ex-hubby, Bobby. As for the sex and drama -- Asifa and Bobby divorced after 14 months of marriage .... yet they're currently banging again. Who says you can't go back?
We're also told GG's gonna have a major storyline, too -- accusing Mike of trying to have sex with her in Turkey last year -- and even submitting to a lie detector test.
Ex-BF Cheated with a Porn Star
9/8/2014 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Britney Spears didn't dump David Lucado for hooking up with any ol' regular girl next door -- TMZ has learned the other woman in question is a hardcore porn star.
Cali Lee is a 5 foot, 96 pound Latina who's been in the biz since 2009. She's famous for classics like:
-- "Itty Bitty Boobies"
-- "8th Street Latinas Vol. 20"
-- "Fresh Outta High School 14"
Cali is kind of a unicorn in the industry -- she's been in less than 20 scenes. Although, one of 'em was with legendary swordsman Ron Jeremy.
As for how David and Cali crossed paths -- we're told they met at a bar near Britney's house.
As we previously reported ... Britney kicked David to the curb after he was videotaped hooking up with Cali in August. Britney's dad bought the vid to keep it under wraps.
Bottom line ... there's now a direct link between Britney Spears and Ron Jeremy.
Sherri Shepherd's Ex
She NEVER Sent Me Nudes
... But I Wish She Did!
9/7/2014 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Lamar Sally insists he's NOT trying to hawk naked pics of his soon-to-be-ex Sherri Shepherd ... but tells TMZ if he did have nude pics of her, they might not be getting divorced.
Earlier this week a report came out that Sally had compromising pics of Shepherd and was willing to share them -- for a price -- but Sally tells TMZ that's complete BS.
In fact, he says ... "If Sherri would have been more sexual with me and sent me things like nude pictures, we'd still be married."
Sources close to the ex-couple tell us Sally hasn't heard a word from Shepherd since their surrogate gave birth last month to the baby boy they planned to raise together ... back when they were happily married. We're told the baby is living with Lamar in L.A. and Sherri's never met him.
We're told Sally rejected a $150K settlement offer from Shepherd in their child custody dispute ... because he crunched the numbers. That works out to $694/mo. over 18 years, and according to our sources ... Sally thinks the court will order Sherri to pay more..
'CSI' Creator's Divorce
She Gets Half the Empire
9/4/2014 10:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The CSI empire is getting split right down the middle -- creator Anthony Zuiker's divorce is finally settled and his wife is walking away with half the massive TV fortune ... TMZ has learned.
Jennifer Zuiker filed for divorce back in 2011, but they just hammered out the details. Bottom line -- she gets HALF of any money Anthony earns from the 3 'CSI' TV shows he's created. She also gets a cut of "CSI: Cyber" ... which doesn't debut until next year.
Anything Anthony creates going forward though -- like say, CSI: Milwaukee or Billings -- would be all his. Additionally, she will have no creative control over the productions.
According to the docs, obtained by TMZ, Jennifer will get ZERO spousal support -- because although she says her monthly standard of living is $171,878 ... both parties agreed she'll be just fine with half of the CSI paychecks. The franchise makes THAT much bread. For reference ... the CSI shows have reportedly generated more than $6 BILLION.
They have 3 kids ... and Anthony will pay $10,000 a month in child support.
Jennifer put her foot down on a couple other things. She's keeping 100% of her clothing and accessories purchased from Alexander McQueen. Guess the items weren't Anthony's size. She also gets back a $26,282 deposit for a vacation on Richard Branson's private Necker Island.
Case closed. Cue The Who.

Future and Ciara
For Good Of Their Baby
9/3/2014 11:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Future and Ciara didn't stay apart for long ... and it's all because Ciara feels strongly about her son needing his father around 24/7.
Sources close to Future tell TMZ ... he and Ciara are living together again -- and trying to make things work between them -- so Future can help take care of their 4-month-old son, Future Zahir.
Ciara must be willing to overlook the past ... since she was the one who claimed Future cheated on her while he was on tour -- and then broke off their engagement last month.
We're told Ciara wasn't interested in a shared parenting situation ... saying she believes Future's a good father and that it's best for their son if his dad's there.
Pretty selfless of her, if she really believes he cheated.
Booted Ex-BF Claims ...
We Were On a Break!
9/3/2014 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
David Lucado says he didn't technically cheat on Britney Spears ... because his videotaped hookup with another chick went down AFTER Brit had already kicked him to the curb.
Lucado is telling friends Britney dumped him via text on August 6th. Sources close to the ex couple tell us they'd been arguing over "outside influences" -- like her conservators -- who control Britney's life ... and Spears sent him a message saying, "I'm done with you."
Lucado's cheating sesh went down the very next night on August 7 -- and as we first told you Britney's dad now owns the video of the hookup. We're told David and Brit reconciled, conveniently, on August 8.
Sources close to David tell us he wants to get in touch with Britney to pitch his "we were on a break" theory. But as we previously reported ... Papa Spears and everyone else around Brit ain't about to let that happen.

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.
Keep Rita Ora Away From Me!

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.

From Contacting Her
8/30/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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."
