War Machine Engaged to Pen Pal ... Sorry, No Conjugal Visits

7/20/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The good news for War Machine is that he found love and he's now engaged to 30-year-old Ashley Farrington ... bad news is there's no conjugal visits in the state where he's locked up. Congrats?

Family sources close to Ashley tell TMZ ... War Marchine -- who is serving a life sentence with a possibility of parole when he's 71 -- first got acquainted with Ashley when she started writing to him as his pen pal last summer. We're told the relationship evolved to visits to Ely State Prison. They posed for this pic a few weeks ago.

Feelings developed and, earlier this year, the 36-year-old former UFC star wrote a poem asking for her hand in marriage. She said yes, even though he was sans ring. 

War and Ashley can have a wedding ceremony in prison and share a hug, but that's all the physical contact they'll have for a very long time -- Nevada doesn't allow conjugal visits. So much for consummating the marriage. 

As we reported ... War was found guilty of sexual assault, coercion, battery by strangulation, kidnapping and several other charges after attacking his ex, porn star Christy Mack.

We've reached out to War's attorney, who would not confirm nor deny the engagement.

Asia Argento Shares Anthony Bourdain Photo From Days Before His Death

7/19/2018 5:44 PM PDT

Asia Argento's still grieving the loss of Anthony Bourdain.

The actress shared a personal photo Thursday of herself with her late boyfriend ... the 2 are in a red convertible looking happy, with the 'Parts Unknown' host smirking while holding a green umbrella over them.

Asia captioned the pic with an Italian poem from Dante's "Divine Comedy," which translates to ... "There is no greater sorrow than to be mindful of the happy time in misery, and that thy Teacher knows. But, if to recognize the earliest root of love in us thou hast so great desire, I will do even as he who weeps and speaks."

According to the post, the photo was taken May 27 ... just a little over a week before Bourdain died by suicide. As we reported ... he was found dead in his French hotel room after using the belt from his robe to hang himself.

Argento wrote after his death that she was "beyond devastated." She's shared a few photos with Bourdain since then ... clearly trying to take Dante's words to heart.

The newly retired cornerback showed up to the ESPYs with Sports Illustrated swimsuit model and pro MMA fighter Mia Kang as his arm candy ... and the two looked VERY coupley.

Are they dating for real? Mia wouldn't spill the beans ... but, Revis did say the two already have a second date planned.

"She said she's going to kick my ass soon," Revis says. "So, I'm looking forward to it."

Sure beats jammin' receivers during the dog days of training camp, right D.R.??

Faith Evans & Stevie J Wedding Stuns Friends and Fam ... Where Was the Invite?!

7/19/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The marriage of Stevie J and Faith Evans didn't just take us by surprise ... their loved ones and close friends were blindsided as well, and they're not happy about it.

Family sources on both sides tell TMZ ... they were never given a heads-up marriage was even a possibility.  

We're told there was never talk -- not a hint -- of a wedding. Faith was scheduled to be in L.A. getting ready for a London trip, and Stevie was just in Atlanta for 'Love & Hip Hop' ... so the Vegas rendezvous that ended in "I do" floored everyone.

Our sources say there are a lot of hurt feelings among those close to the couple ... especially their kids. We're told Faith's son, CJ Wallace -- her child with Biggie Smalls -- is especially upset ... because he's also Stevie's godson.

Family sources on Faith's side tell us ... Faith told them Stevie J went to her Tuesday and told her they needed to get married that day. The sources think Stevie J knew if Faith started telling friends and family she was marrying him, they would talk her out of it.

And, get this ... friends and family members were blowing up Faith's phone Wednesday, asking her why she did it. She responded by sending them a song she just recorded with Stevie J called, "A Minute" with the explanation ... it only took a minute to fall in love.

As we reported ... Faith and Stevie tied the knot in their hotel room around 10:30 PM Tuesday. It's his first marriage and her third.

We're told a number of friends and fam are so bitter ... Faith and Stevie won't be receiving wedding gifts.

EXCLUSIVE

Karlie Redd dropped a new single Wednesday ... but that was quickly forgotten when her BF popped the question.

Karlie was hosting a party for her new single, "Ferrari Karlie," at Atlanta club Buckethead Loft when her now soon-to-be husband got down on bended knee and proposed. The pair has only been dating for few months -- he's her first relationship since she split with Grammy-nominated producer Sean Garrett.

There's not a whole lot of info available about Redd's new man ... but his name is apparently Mo, and he goes by Arkansas Mo on Instagram.

Karlie seemed a little more interested in the box the ring came in at first. It's pretty cool ... it displayed a bunch of pictures on an LED screen when she opened it. Her ring ain't too shabby either.

Faith Evans & Stevie J 'Gypsy Mobile Minister' Hired ... Hours Before Wedding!!!

EXCLUSIVE

Faith Evans and Stevie J pulled a Cardi B and Offset-style wedding ceremony ... hiring their Las Vegas officiant just hours before saying, "I do."

Sources close to the couple tell TMZ ... Faith placed a call Tuesday around 6 PM to a local minister, named Joelle Righetti, asking if she was available to do a wedding at Trump Hotel, stat.

Righetti refers to herself on her website as the "Gypsy Mobile Minister."

As we first reported ... the couple was spotted Tuesday outside a Vegas courthouse where they got a marriage license. A little less than 5 hours later -- around 10:30 PM -- the ceremony went down.

The ceremony was performed in the living room of their hotel suite with Faith and Stevie overlooking the Vegas strip. Sources close to the couple tell us they held hands and teared up while "Ave Maria" played on a portable speaker.

We're told the "Gypsy Minister" -- whose services cost a couple hundred bucks -- had no idea she was marrying off celebs. She even asked Faith if she was a model or an actress. Faith politely said she's a singer ... to which the minister said, "Me too!"

Gotta love Vegas.

Exclusive Details

9:55 AM PT -- It's a wrap ... Faith and Stevie have already done the deed. Multiple sources at the ceremony confirm they tied the knot in their hotel room Tuesday night ... around 10:30 PM.

Pass the champagne!

Faith Evans and Stevie J are THIS close to becoming Mr. and Mrs. Jordan ... TMZ's learned they've applied for a marriage license in Las Vegas. 

According to docs, the singer and producer filed for the license in Clark County on Tuesday. The clock's now running, they have one year to tie the knot. But it seems like they won't need that long -- Stevie tweeted Tuesday, "I love you Faith Renee Jordan," and Faith replied, "I love you back Steven Aaron Jordan."

The couple had broken up last year -- but, you know what they say, break up to make up.

The news comes on the heels of a steamy clip Stevie J posted last week from a music video he and Faith shot for their track, "A Minute." They had also been flirting on Stevie's show, "Leave It to Stevie" ... but this is a big turnaround for him.

TMZ broke the story ... Stevie avoided going to prison for failing to pay child support. He's on the hook for over a million bucks. He also battled a nasty child custody case with his ex, Joseline Hernandez.

This would be Stevie's first marriage and Faith's third -- she was previously married to the Notorious B.I.G. and Todd Russaw, whom she divorced in 2011.

The closest thing to a Bono-Jay-Z-Beyonce collaboration went down in Nice, France with the help of a backing band that strolled up to their dinner table ... and it was all recorded by Beyonce's mom, Tina.

Jay and Bey wrapped the first leg of their On the Run II tour in the south of France and, during dinner with the U2 frontman, family and friends ... they got serenaded by a band at the restaurant.

Ya gotta hand it to the band for its rendition of Van Morrison's "Brown Eyed Girl" because it got Bono and co. dancing along. Beyonce was a little camera shy.

Tina patted herself on the back for the footage, calling herself the "mamarazzi."
