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.
Walmart Heiress' Hubby
Screw Saving Money
I Want to Live Better!

Walmart heiress Paige Laurie Dubbert is in a Catch 22 -- she's fighting her husband's bid in divorce court for half her fortune, but the longer she fights him ... the more she'll have to pay.
Patrick Dubbert is trying to invalidate their prenup ... claiming he was defrauded. He says Paige's lawyer went around his lawyer's back and contacted him directly, promising a "side deal" if he signed the prenup.
Now here's the problem. If the prenup is invalidated, Patrick can get half of what Paige earned for the 6 years of their marriage -- A FORTUNE.
Paige is waging legal war to enforce the prenup, which gives Patrick a fat $30,000 a month check for half the amount of time they were married -- right now that would be 3 years. But the longer the divorce drags on, the longer she'll have to pay him $30K a month.
In other words, RPP.

Katharine McPhee can't keep her hands off her co-workers ... but it's not a director this time ... it's her new show's leading man.
McPhee was on set Thursday getting handsy with Elyes Gabel, her co-star in the upcoming CBS series, "Scorpion." Unlike her last on-set romance ... Gabel's not married and she's getting divorced.
You'll remember ... photos surfaced of McPhee locking lips with "Smash" director Michael Morris in October 2013. McPhee was married to Nick Cokas (though she claims they were separated) and Morris was married to actress Mary McCormack (they're still together).
Her next project will be interesting ... what the hell will she do if she co-stars with Neil Patrick Harris?

Transsexual Porn Star
I'm a Man, Baby!
Now I Can Get Divorced
8/14/2014 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Transsexual porn star Buck Angel is now 100% legit under Louisiana law ... which means he can now legally ditch his wife and go after her money.
According to the court decision, Buck and Elayne Angel's union is legal because they always intended to be married as a man and woman -- and back in 2003 they were granted a marriage license in Louisiana ... as a man and a woman. No one questioned Buck's gender when they got the license.
California also played big in the court's decision because Buck got a legal name and gender change there way back in 1998.
Elayne was hoping the court would rule Buck is a woman -- which would nullify their same-sex marriage under Louisiana law.
As we previously told you ... Buck wants a divorce and is gunning for $2,000/month in spousal support.
Attempt to Keep Kids in U.S. FAILS
Freaks Out In Court
8/13/2014 2:14 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kelly Rutherford burst into tears and freaked out after a judge shut down her last ditch effort to keep her kids in the U.S.
Rutherford claimed another judge had illegally awarded custody of her 2 kids to her ex-husband, Daniel Giersch, who lives in France. Rutherford claims the judge effectively deported the kids.
So she was in federal court Wednesday ... asking a judge to step in, but the federal judge said he didn't have the power. Outside the courtroom, Rutherford broke down, saying "My own country won't save my children and I pay taxes!"
The judge gave Rutherford a ray of hope, saying although he didn't have jurisdiction over custody, he would set up a conference call Friday with him, Rutherford and Giersch's lawyer ... to figure out a way for Giersch -- who has immigration issues -- to come back to the U.S. to live.
The clock is ticking ... if the judge's Hail Mary doesn't work ... the kids go to France August 19.

Ramona Singer -- who stars in "Real Housewives of New York City" -- has gone to the NYPD ... claiming her estranged husband's mistress has been stalking her ... TMZ has learned.
Law enforcement sources tell us ... Ramona called 911 Wednesday afternoon, claiming the woman had followed her to a restaurant.
Ramona revealed last week she was leaving hubby Mario Singer, although she didn't say why. Other members of the cast dimed Mario to the media ... at least they alleged he was cheating.
But now we know ... Singer herself believes Mario was cheating, and for some reason she believes the mistress is obsessed with her.
Cops went to the restaurant but the woman in question was eating lunch with a man and had no connection to either Ramona or Mario.
Husband Calls BS
We Were NOT Separated When She Cheated!
8/13/2014 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Katharine McPhee's hubby claims his estranged wife is a cheater and a liar.
Nick Cokas has filed new divorce docs -- obtained by TMZ -- which squarely contradict Katharine's version of the timeline of their separation ... which is relevant because of the photos showing her making out with "Smash" director Michael Morris.
Katharine claimed in her divorce docs they separated in March, 2013 -- months before pics surfaced in October showing Katharine and Michael sucking face.
But Nick begs to differ, claiming the separation was actually in May, 2014 ... long after Katharine hooked up with Michael.
Nick has some pretty powerful evidence to back up his version, including emails and texts about their relationship. Family sources say Nick can show he and Katharine were in marriage counseling AFTER the pictures surfaced.
The separation date is important because it determines when Katharine's money becomes hers alone.
And she's not getting off easy ... Nick wants spousal support.
My Kids Have Been Illegally Deported!
8/11/2014 11:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kelly Rutherford claims her children are being illegally deported by a renegade judge who has ordered them to live with their father in France ... and if things don't change she'll break the law and keep her kids right here in the U.S. of A.
The former star of "Gossip Girl" was in a bitter custody battle with ex-hubby Daniel Giersch. He now lives in France and an L.A. County Superior Court judge ruled he had a right to primary custody of the children -- ages 5 and 7.
In new legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- Rutherford claims sending her kids out of the country creates an immigration issue -- and that's beyond the scope of a state judge's power.
Rutherford wants a federal judge to invalidate the state order and give her custody so the children can remain in the U.S.
And the actress says ... if she doesn't win in court her only recourse is to defy the judge and keep her kids. She acknowledges she'll get in trouble but claims that would be her only option.
