Sugar Bear Always Took Back Seat
To Child Molester
10/27/2014 12:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Child molester Mark McDaniel was the Camilla Parker-Bowles in the relationship between Mama June and Sugar Bear ... and even though he was behind bars almost the entire time June was with Sugar Bear, it destroyed their relationship.
Multiple family sources tell TMZ ... June kept a box of photos of her and McDaniel in the house ... something Sugar Bear knew about and protested, to no avail. She would NOT get rid of them.
We're told McDaniel -- who molested June's then 8-year-old daughter Anna -- was the subject of frequent arguments between June and Sugar Bear. He felt she was still emotionally in a relationship with McDaniel ... even though he had been locked up for years.
Our sources say June was seeing McDaniel while she was still with Sugar Bear -- he got out of prison in March. The family now believes it was actually June who was cheating, not Sugar Bear, and she used the online dating story to get out of a relationship she had already rejected.
Sugar Bear is Honey Boo Boo's dad, and we're guessing he's not happy about the pic of McDaniel touching her ... a pic taken Sept. 9.
Bruce & Kris Jenner
Kris Can Have All 8 Bathrooms
10/27/2014 12:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Bruce Jenner may have snagged Kris Jenner's best friend ... but he's giving up something probably way more valuable.
Bruce signed documents -- obtained by TMZ -- giving up his share of their Hidden Hills house to Kris in their divorce property settlement.
They bought the 6 bedroom, 8 bathroom pad in 2010 for $4 million and it's gone way up in value.
Bruce is now ensconced in a bachelor pad in Malibu.
As we previously reported ... Bruce recently started hooking up with Kris' friend and neighbor, Ronda Kamihira.

Gimme My Stuff!
10/26/2014 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Jon Gosselin showed up to his ex-wife Kate Gosselin's yard sale Saturday in Pennsylvania ... which can mean only one thing ... the guy wants to get some of his old junk back.
Kate was selling off old stuff like helmets and car seats with proceeds benefiting the Animal Rescue League ... and apparently J.G. was feeling a bit sentimental.
Here's the problem ... he doesn't have garage sale money anymore.
Draya Michele's Ex-BF
I Want Our
Sex Tape Back!
10/26/2014 12:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Draya Michele's ex-BF claims they made a sex tape ... and now he's suing to get it back -- because he's worried their skin flick will go public.
TMZ has learned a video is being shopped around to the big porn companies ... featuring a woman who looks a lot like the "Basketball Wives" star -- and her ex, David Miranda.
Miranda filed suit in NY small claims court ... for loss of "private documents." David tells us the private "doc" in question is actually a sex tape.
David says he and Draya were banging from Jan. 2011 to Sept. 2013 ... and have videos meant for their eyes only -- and now he's upset someone is pimping it.
Miranda blames Draya for the alleged footage ending up in the wrong hands.
We reached out to Draya ... her rep had no comment.
Hal-HO-ween Without Paula
10/26/2014 12:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Robin Thicke is clearly done trying to win his ex Paula Patton back ... because the dude rolled into a costume shop with 4 chicks and bought them all sexy outfits.
Thicke hit up Trashy Lingerie -- a supplier of celebrity undies -- and we're told he dropped $2,800 on his harem of hotties ... buying them skimpy greek bras and skirts for Halloween.
As you may recall ... Thicke went on a campaign to woo Paula Patton back into his life after they broke up -- but she filed for divorce anyway.
The single life ... it could be worse.
Bruce Jenner's New Chick
She's Got Legs
10/25/2014 6:29 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
We may have to plead no contest to over-reading, it sure seems like Bruce Jenner's new chick is sending an F-U message to Kris.
Ronda Kamihira got a little showy Friday night when she decided to post a pic of herself in a teddy with rose petals on a bed.
Unclear if this is an old picture ... or maybe something Bruce himself snapped ... but clearly thirsty Ronda wants to convince everyone she's hotter than any momager draped in Old Glory.
Gotta say ... the girl is all right, she's all right.
Hilary Duff and Mike Comrie
We're Not Saying They're Banging
10/25/2014 8:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Hilary Duff and her ex Mike Comrie have been separated for almost a year ... which begs the question, why the hell are they still going to parties together and holding hands?!
The "Lizzie McGuire" star and former NHL player hit up the annual Casamigos Halloween bash in Los Angeles Friday night and proudly held hands in front of the paparazzi as they walked inside.
Back in July it seemed they might reconcile ... which means it's possible the couple is back to banging -- or maybe they're just the coolest exes ever.
Whatever floats your boat.
Chris Martin, Gwyneth Paltrow
10/22/2014 5:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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.
Spills Guts On Dennis Rodman
Marriage Was Super Volatile
10/20/2014 10:38 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
16 years after they tied the knot, Carmen Electra is telling all about her marriage to Dennis Rodman -- saying it was one of the most bipolar relationships she's ever been a part of.
Electra sat down with Oprah's "Where Are They Now?" ... and explained why she fell in love with Rodman back in 1998.
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.
