If Mel Gibson ever has to fill out an employment application ... he can honestly say he has not been convicted of a violent crime ... because his battery conviction in the Oksana Grigorieva case has been expunged.
A judge has officially removed the conviction from Mel's record ... after he successfully completed his 3 years probation.
TMZ broke the story ... the paperwork had been filed to erase the conviction for hitting Oksana in the mouth and knocking out 2 veneers.
Mel has done his 16 hours of community service and 52 weeks of counseling.
So Oksana is officially out of his life, except for the fact that she'll never be out of his life because they had a kid together.

My Alien Ex Falsely Accused Me of Strangulation ...
To Stay in the U.S.
5/8/2014 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Poor Canada -- The-Dream's ex-girlfriend would rather see him rot in jail than return to Canuckistan ... and that's exactly why the producer believes she has falsely accused him of strangling her.
Dream is telling friends, the reason he was charged Wednesday with felony assault and strangulation is all because Lydia Nam was about to be kicked out of the U.S.
Here's the deal. Her visa is set to expire shortly. Dream says she found out there's a special visa that allows immigrants to remain in the country if they're crime victims and they're needed in the prosecution of the perpetrator.
So, Dream says, that's why she FALSELY accused him of punching, kicking and strangling her while she was pregnant with their son.
For Nam's part, sources close to her tell us, Dream didn't just attack her once ... he had a history of physically abusing her. She admits she waited 7 months after the strangling incident to file a police report, but she says the reason for the delay is simple -- she was terrified of him.
Stuck with $6K/Mo. Bachelorette Pad
But Marriage Reunion Looms
5/7/2014 2:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Hilary Duff might have just made a $6,000 per month mistake -- she recently signed a lease for a fancy bachelorette pad ... but now she might be getting back together with her estranged husband Mike Comrie.
Real estate sources tell TMZ, Duff signed the lease for the 1,500 sq. ft. 2-bedroom house a couple months ago -- soon after she and the ex-NHL star announced they were separating -- but you may have noticed ... the "separated" couple hasn't been so "separated" recently.
Hilary and Mike have been hanging out a LOT -- Hilary even addressed the ambiguous situation, saying, "We love each other so much, and we love spending time together ... We don't know what our future looks like right now."
So it's unclear if Hilary plans to live in her new house ... or if she plans to let it sit Hilary-less, while she continues to live with Mike in their $3.9 million Beverly Hills mansion.
Sources close to Hilary insist her sister Haylie Duff currently lives in the home -- even though it's in Hilary's name -- but our real estate sources tell us, Hilary has spent significant time there.

The-Dream turned himself into cops this morning for an alleged attack on his ex-GF ... and TMZ has learned he's been booked for 2 felonies -- assault and strangulation.
Law enforcement sources tells us Dream walked into an NYPD precinct at 8:30 A.M. ET -- he had been wanted by police for questioning in connection with an alleged assault on his baby mama, Lydia Nam in April 2013.
TMZ broke the story ... Nam claims he punched, kicked, and strangled her while she was pregnant with his son. For some reason she didn't report the incident to police until 7 months later.
According to law enforcement sources ... Dream's been booked for the 2 felonies as well as 3 misdemeanors -- assault, reckless endangerment, and child endangerment.
He's still in custody.

Epic Divorce Meltdown
He's a Physically Abusive Drunk Pill Head
5/5/2014 7:11 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Devastating blow to the Hollywood fitness craze known as Barry's Bootcamp -- the married couple behind the company has crumbled in epic fashion ... amid allegations of terrifying violence, drug and alcohol abuse, and more.
43-year-old Rachel Mumford has filed for divorce from 58-year-old John Mumford -- the man who provided the seed money in 1998 -- citing irreconcilable differences ... and that's just the beginning.
Rachel just got a restraining order, after accusing John in legal docs of physically abusing her for years. She also claims he's been nursing a nasty ecstasy and booze habit that's put not only both of them in danger, but the couple's children as well.
The straw that broke the camel's back -- Rachel claims she and John went to Paris last month, and John flipped out over text messages he read on her phone ... grabbed her, threw her against their hotel room walls, and attempted to smother her on the bed.
Rachel and John were married back in 1997 and have two minor children. Rachel wants physical custody of their kids while John gets help for his drug and booze problems.
Barry's has blown up with locations across the country -- and remains a staple in the Hollwood fitness scene ... with celeb regulars like Jessica Alba, Kim Kardashian, Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllenhaal, and many more.
We've reached out to John for comment -- so far, no word back.

Selena Gomez has turned her back on former BFFs Kendall and Kylie Jenner because she wants to focus on what's really important -- MUSIC -- and thinks the Jenners are nothing but a toxic distraction ... sources tell TMZ.
Sources close to Selena tell us, the singer had an epiphany after Coachella last week -- where she was surrounded by booze and drugs while hanging with the Jenner girls, Justin Bieber ... and all the hangers-on that come with them.
We're told Selena's sick of that scene -- so she's decided to cut out what she considers the biggest sources of negativity ... Jenner girls included.
Selena made the cut official, and public ... by unfollowing Kendall and Kylie on Instagram. She also deleted all her Coachella selfies with the sisters.
The Insta-purge continued ... with Bieber and a bunch of others getting dropped -- and, in fact, she's currently following ZERO people.
We're told Selena is determined to stay on the straight and narrow -- focusing on music and, get this ... going to church almost daily.
Makes ya think ... must've been one helluva party at Coachella.

"Scandal" star Columbus Short is being allowed to return to his home -- after being banned from the premises for allegedly threatening to kill his wife -- but he won't have time to get comfortable ... a judge is giving Short just 2 hours at home to get his stuff ... and get out.
Short was in court today seeking permission to move back into his house after his wife obtained a restraining order, barring him from entering the home -- but a judge denied his request.
Instead, the judge gave Short 2 hours next Monday to go to the house and gather any belongings he needs ... and only with his attorney present.
TMZ broke the story ... Tanee Short got the restraining order, claiming Short had threatened to kill her during an explosive fight in their Chatsworth home April 7. Tanee claimed Short pinned her down, choked her, and threatened to stab her unless she admitted to having affairs.
She also claimed Short put a knife to her throat and threatened murder/suicide.
Tanee has since filed for divorce and wants sole custody of their 2-year-old daughter.

Journalist and TV host Giselle Fernandez just lost 180 pounds ... by dumping her husband after 11 years of marriage ... and according to legal docs, she's quick to point out ... she makes a fortune.
52-year-old Fernandez filed for legal separation from business exec John Farrand on Friday, citing irreconcilable differences.

Other fun stuff -- Fernandez claims she spends $6,500 a month on rent and $2,000 on GROCERIES.

Johnny to Victor
There Will Be No Mutual Masturbation
From Here on Out!
4/15/2014 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Johnny Weir wrote a 5-page post-nup which is part of his newfangled reconciliation package with Victor Voronov -- and Johnny makes it clear mutual masturbation will NOT be tolerated.
TMZ broke the story ... Johnny and Victor agreed over the weekend to call off their divorce, but Victor wanted Johnny to sign a document apologizing for trashing Victor in the media and promising to keep Johnny's mom out of their relationship.
So Johnny fired back with a document of his own, which, among other things, defines the type of cheating that will not be tolerated. The document -- obtained by TMZ -- lists the following:
-- sex outside the marriage
-- oral sex outside the marriage
-- kissing or making out
-- aggressive flirting
-- mutual masturbation
-- social media/grindr/dating
And it gets better. According to the document, if either one has a situation where they're "in close range or contact with someone from our past or someone to be part of the future" ... the other can veto the contact. Johnny specifically gives an example of a figure skater he dated.
The document also requires joint STD tests every 6 months with the results being read with both in the room.
And there's a section about splitting assets if they ultimately get divorced: "Should a gift be given, i.e., the Cartier Roadster (R.I.P.), the gift belongs to you." Someone broke the watch!
And finally ... there's a section titled "Ultimatums." Johnny lists examples of Victor's ultimatums, including, "If I give you one more day to get your bank records to me, then I want to have a free f*** of anyone I want."

4/14/2014 9:14 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Duff and her NHL player hubby announced their separation back in January, but still managed to take a family vacation together over Valentine's Day (see below).
Perhaps this relationship isn't over until the divorce attorney sings.
