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.
Rips 'Uneducated' Mayweather
9/2/2014 7:19 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Manny Pacquiao is following 50 Cent and Nelly's lead -- bashing Floyd Mayweather for his apparent lack of formal education. Manny was doing an interview with NJ.com when he started going off on the boxing champ.
"I think I finally understand him ... what he says ... how he acts ... and I don’t like it."
"But what l learned and heard from him, well, I realize why he is like that. I understand sometimes when the people are not educated they just talk to talk. He sets a very bad example."
Mayweather's erudition has been under attack lately -- with 50 claiming the fighter can't read and Nelly trashing him for allegedly failing to graduate high school.
Floyd has been mostly silent about the attacks -- but his father went off on his behalf ... calling 50 (and everyone else ripping his son's education) as "player haters."
Keep Rita Ora Away From Me!
9/1/2014 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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.
Didn't Go to His Bro's Wedding ...
But He Sent an Instagram!
8/31/2014 7:11 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Nothing says you love your brother and approve of his marriage like sending him a 15-second video on Instagram congratulating him on his wedding ... instead of, ya know ... actually going to the wedding.
As TMZ first reported, Mark Wahlberg did not go to his brother Donnie's wedding to Jenny McCarthy because -- like many people -- he and his wife have issues with some comments Jenny's made.
Instead, Mark was at his 11-year-old daughter's birthday party and wished the couple well from 3,000 miles away.
But you know he sent an AWESOME gift.
Skipping Donnie & Jenny's Wedding
8/30/2014 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
If you're looking for Mark Wahlberg this weekend, don't go to Donnie Wahlberg and Jenny McCarthy's wedding -- TMZ has learned he won't be there, and we're told it's because he and his wife aren't fans of the bride.
According to multiple Wahlberg sources, Mark is not as close with Donnie and Jenny as Jenny has made it seem. Or at least, not with Jenny. We're told Mark's wife Rhea did not like a recent interview Jenny gave with Howard Stern where she talked about her relationship with Mark.
We're told brother Bobby won't be at the wedding either ... and ditto for mama W, but that's because she doesn't fly.
We contacted Mark, and one of his reps told us he wasn't attending because he needs to be at a birthday party for his daughter Ella today in L.A. Her 11th b-day is actually Tuesday, but Mark will be filming that day in Boston.
Our sources say there's absolutely bad blood with Jenny.
For what it's worth ... brother Paul will be in attendance. More cake for him.
50 CENT SHOULD FIGHT MY SON
That Would End the Feud
8/29/2014 12:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Floyd Mayweather Sr. is sick and tired of 50 Cent cracking jokes at his son's expense -- and says the real laughs would come if the two ever fought ... because Floyd would kick 50's WHOLE ASS!
Daddy Mayweather made the comments during an interview with Brian Shapiro from "The Vegas Take" on Fox Sports 670 Las Vegas -- and explained why he thinks 50 has declared war on Floyd.
"50 Cent seems like he's got a problem since Floyd left him. He's a world known singer and he's acting like a kid."
Money Sr. says the real hilarity would ensue if Floyd and 50 ever got in the ring ... promising that the 147 lb. Mayweather would punish the two-hundred-and-something pound rap star.
"He weighs over 100 pounds more than Floyd. Let him go up against Floyd ... put that on video. Floyd would stop all that. Wouldn't be no more said."
There were rumors that Floyd recently challenged 50 to a 12 round fight -- but that later turned out to be a hoax.
Too bad ... would be GREAT to watch.

Little boys can't have grown man toys ... is what Tyson Beckford said about Justin Bieber ... and it's AWESOME!
A somewhat drunk Beckford was leaving 1Oak in West Hollywood ... when our photog asked him about Justin hanging out with his ex-GF Shanina Shaik on a yacht in Ibiza.
Beckford then said things about Shanina, himself and most of all the Biebs that rank among the 10 most awesome celeb comments in 2014.
YOU GOTTA WATCH THIS VIDEO!
We anxiously await Bieber's Instagram response.
50 Cent to Mayweather:
DON'T HATE ME
... Hate Nelly!
8/21/2014 8:29 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
50 just posted a video online -- saying he heard that Floyd talked smack about 3 rappers ... 50, T.I. and Nelly.
Truth is ... Floyd did address certain rappers he's beefing with during an interview with MLive.com -- but didn't mention 50 by name.
He implied that all 3 guys were irrelevant -- saying, "Hip-hop artists, they come and go. They come and go. But I'm still here."
So, 50's response? "Woke up. I look at the computer ... the computer say 'Floyd said f**k T.I., f**k 50, f**k Nelly.'"
"I'm like what he say f**k me for? Nelly f**ked your first baby mama Melissa. Then took your f**ing fiance. [You should] say f**k that n**ga!"
FYI -- Nelly is currently dating Shantel Jackson ... who broke up with Floyd earlier this year.

8/20/2014 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Keyshawn Johnson has a message for Kourtney Kardashian -- YOUR MOLD IS YOUR PROBLEM -- telling TMZ Sports ... KK's claim that he sold her a moldy Calabasas mansion is pure B.S.
Keyshawn and his fiancee Jennifer Conrad were out in Beverly Hills -- getting ready for their wedding this weekend -- when the future Mrs. Johnson told us, "There was no mold when the house was sold. I promise you that."
Key added, "House was sold. House was bought. Everything else is everybody else's problems -- not mine."
As we first reported, Kourtney and her family are living in the Montage in Beverly Hills --claiming Key failed to disclose black mold in the master bedroom.
Key told us the house was "thoroughly inspected by excellent, experienced inspectors that they hired" before the deal went through -- and he did nothing wrong.
Still, KJ says he's not letting the Kardashian drama bother him -- "I'm not worried about mold ... I'm worried about getting ready for my wedding."

We're told Kim took Mason out for the afternoon so he didn't go stir crazy in the Montage hotel in Bev Hills, where mommy Kourtney, Daddy Scott and sister Penelope are staying because they claim the house they bought from Keyshawn Johnson is full of dangerous black mold.

Runs Into Ex After Engagement
At Strip Club!
8/19/2014 3:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kevin Hart was eye to eye with his ex-wife at Magic City strip club in ATL ... hours after he popped the question to Eniko Parrish.
Kevin and ex-wife Torrei Hart seemed at odds Monday night ... her show -- "Atlanta Exes" -- had its premiere, where she accused Kevin of cheating on her. For his part, Kevin jacked her spotlight by proposing to his fiancee and then posted the video on Instagram.
So Torrei took her co-stars to the strip club after the show aired ... and around midnight Kevin walked in with his freshly-minted fiancee.
It gets better ... we're told the 2 exes were seated within eyeshot of each other. They noticed each other but didn't say a word to one another.
But Kevin made a big statement -- he dropped $40K with his fiancee ... making it rain all over the place.
Torrei sat impassively ... with her new guy.
Kourtney's a LIAR!
I Didn't Hide Mold
8/19/2014 10:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Keyshawn Johnson is enraged that Kourtney Kardashian is suggesting he defrauded her by selling her a mold-infested house.
Sources close to Keyshawn tell us he's scoffing at Kourtney's intimation he painted over dangerous black mold so it would go undetected. In fact ... Keyshawn insists he never painted a single wall during the 2 1/2 years he lived in the Calabasas mansion.
Our sources say ... Keyshawn believes the mold developed AFTER the sale when a bathroom pipe sprung a leak in the wall. Keyshawn says someone in the Kardashian klan actually reached out to Keyshawn asking if the house was still under warranty so they wouldn't have to pay for the repair.
Keyshawn is incredulous because he has 2 kids who lived in the house until the day before it was sold ... and the kids mostly slept in the master, where mold was found. He says he would never knowingly expose his kids to mold.
He also says the Kardashians have been a pain in the ass ... calling at least 10 times after the sale to ask about this and that.
11:21 A.M. PDT -- Keyshawn just had his lawyer give us this statement: "There was no water damage to the house I sold to Ms. Kardashian. It is a new home that I built less than 10 years ago. It never had any water or mold problems. Prior to sale, the house was thoroughly inspected by excellent, experienced inspectors that they hired. I don't know what has transpired since they moved into the house but I wish them well."
