Doug Ellin I'm Cutting My Entourage ... Files for Divorce

4/25/2018 4:43 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Entourage" creator Doug Ellin is filing for divorce, and the honeymoon was barely over ... TMZ has learned.

Doug filed his divorce petition in L.A., citing irreconcilable differences ... and effectively ending his brief marriage to Andrea Adler. According to the docs, they just got married in September of last year.

Can't say 4/20 was very happy for them -- Doug says that's the date they separated.

The couple got engaged almost exactly a year ago. Doug popped the question to Andy -- who's a sports anchor for WPIX in NYC -- during a trip to New Orleans on April 30. 

They don't have any kids, and neither is seeking spousal support ... according to the docs.

Hopefully they can, at least, hug it out?

Adrian Grenier Yo, Starbs ... Get Your S*** Together On the Straw Thing, That Is

4/19/2018 6:44 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Adrian Grenier is pissed at Starbucks, but it's not for the reason you might immediately think.

We got the "Entourage" star Wednesday night leaving the "Party with a Purpose" event at The Peppermint Club in WeHo, where we asked about his environmental initiative, #StopSucking, in which he's asking the mermaid coffee chain to drop their single-use plastic straws since they flood the ocean.

Considering Adrian recently pitched his effort at a Starbucks shareholders meeting, you know he means business with this straw thing. Oddly enough ... he failed to address the recent controversy over a couple black guys being arrested at a Starbucks in Philly.

Either way, check out his lobbying effort with our photog ... it's much less PC than any of his social media posts.

Jeremy Piven Chivalry Ain't Dead ... Ask My Date

1/10/2018 8:08 AM PST

Jeremy Piven's still got game ... as he proved with the new woman in his life.

The "Entourage" star hit up Catalina Bar & Grill in WeHo Tuesday night with actress Liana Mendoza. The date night is interesting for a couple reasons. First, he was with a different woman a couple weeks ago in Hawaii.

Second, the sexual misconduct allegations -- which he's always denied -- don't seem to be slowing down Jeremy's bachelor lifestyle. Btw, it was a chilly night in L.A. ... and looks like Jeremy stepped up to offer Liana his jacket.

Keep playing it cool, Jeremy.

Jeremy Piven Accuser Calls BS on Kevin Dillon 'Entourage' Had Culture of Harassment

12/5/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

One of Jeremy Piven's accusers says she's not surprised Kevin Dillon came to his "Entourage" buddy's defense ... because he was privy to the culture of sexual harassment on the set. 

Ariane Bellamar, who accused Piven of sexual assault -- tells us Dillon was on the set and saw the harassment firsthand, although she concedes he did not see any sexual assault. Piven adamantly denies sexually assaulting or harassing Bellamar.

While Ariane acknowledges she never experienced anything other than lewd comments from Dillon, she insists "Entourage" was a stewing pot for sexual harassment.

Kevin has not been accused of any wrongdoing. But that's not stopping Ariane from tearing into him.

We reached out to both Kevin and HBO ... so far, no word back.

EXCLUSIVE

Kevin Dillon says his old pal and "Entourage" co-star, Jeremy Piven, is a gentleman who's being wrongly blacklisted over sexual misconduct allegations.

We got Kevin -- who starred on the HBO hit with Piven for 7 years -- and he says Piven's new show getting axed on CBS just ain't right.

According to Kev, Jeremy's nothin' but a gentleman. Can't tell if he's doing Drama here, but he's also shocked by the Lauer scandal.

Bottom line for Johnny Chase ... find the truth, first.

Jeremy Piven Innocent Until Proven Guilty ... Anyone 'Memba That?

11/9/2017 3:50 PM PST
Breaking News

Jeremy Piven wants Hollywood to remember one thing amid the flood of sexual misconduct allegations against himself and others: Innocent until proven guilty.

Piven says, "We seem to be entering dark times -- allegations are being printed as facts and lives are being put in jeopardy without a hearing, due process or evidence." Last month, a woman claimed Piven had groped and sexually harassed her on the "Entourage" set. Two other women have also come forward with accusations against him.

Now, Jeremy says he's willing to take a lie detector test to prove his innocence, and adds he -- and perhaps Kevin Spacey, Harvey Weinstein and Louis C.K. -- deserve "the benefit of a doubt before we rush to judgment."

Spacey's already been axed from the feature film, "All the Money in the World," "House of Cards" and Netflix, in general. Weinstein's been banished from multiple Hollywood organizations.

Piven ended his plea on Twitter, saying, "Continuing to tear each other down and destroy careers based on mere allegations is not productive on any level." 

Jeremy Piven Playing it Cool Denies Sexual Assault Claim

10/31/2017 5:02 PM PDT

Jeremy Piven's still getting a big thumbs up from at least one smiley fan ... immediately on the heels of allegations he sexually assaulted a woman on the set of "Entourage."

Piven was out in NYC Tuesday to promote his new CBS drama, "Wisdom of the Crowd" ... and didn't outwardly seem concerned about Ariane Bellamar's claim he groped her in his trailer, and also at the Playboy Mansion.

Piven responded to Bellamar Tuesday night, saying ... "I unequivocally deny the appalling allegations being peddled about me. It did not happen."

He added ... "It takes a great deal of courage for victims to come forward with their histories, and my hope is that the allegations about me that didn’t happen, do not detract from stories that should be heard."

Jeremy Piven Accused of Sexual Assault On 'Entourage' Set

10/31/2017 11:17 AM PDT

Jeremy Piven is being called out by a former "Entourage" extra who claims he groped her on the set of the show and also at the Playboy Mansion.

Ariane Bellamar tweeted Piven Monday, saying ... "Member when you cornered me in your trailer on the #Entourage set? 'Member grabbing my boobies on the [couch] without asking??"

She also claims she tried to leave but Piven "grabbed me by the ass, looked at yourself in the mirror, & said what a 'beautiful couple' we made?" Bellamar, an actress and ex-reality tv star, claims he did the same -- fondling her breasts and butt -- at the Mansion.

We reached out to Piven's camp, but haven't heard back.

'Star Wars' Screenwriter Sues Tinder Date Over Disastrous Breakup

4/5/2017 4:24 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

A big-time screenwriter is suing a woman he met on Tinder, claiming she was using an episode of "Entourage" as a template to ruin his life.

Derek Connolly, whose credits include the upcoming "Star Wars: Episode IX," as well as "Jurassic World" and "Kong: Skull Island," met a woman named Ada Hui last May on the dating app. They dated until late last month, and the breakup was super bad.

He says she exploded in a fit of rage, posting their text messages on Instagram and threatening to damage his career. Connolly says Hui even insinuated he was in harm's way.

Then it got really ugly. Connolly says she told him to drop off her stuff by a certain time, or else it would be "Entourage S7 E7," a reference to Season 7 Episode 7 titled "Tequila and Coke," in which Ari Gold was blackmailed.

He says she threatened to "gut" his identity and self-worth. He says she cautioned, "You won't see it coming" before it hits him "like a ton of bricks."

Connolly is suing for stalking and invasion of privacy. He also wants the judge to order her to stop.

Jerry Ferrara My Ex-Pals at Fat Sal's Are Big Fat Jerks!!

12/5/2016 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Jerry Ferrara's pissed at his former friends and sandwich biz partners for suing him, and he's fired back with a million-dollar countersuit for screwing him over ... according to the docs.

The "Entourage" star says he co-founded Fat Sal's with 2 of his friends and was the "driving force" behind its success. Ferrara claims he not only provided $74,500 for start-up money, but also used his celeb status to heavily promote the sandwich shop, and boost revenue.

Turtle says his old buds started squeezing him out when they opened several more locations. In the docs, he says they went to great lengths to hide profits from him. Jerry says they even deleted the "Our Story" section from their website where he was credited as co-founder.

Fat Sal's sued to officially 86 Jerry in August, but in his suit Jerry's demanding his equity share and at least a million dollars in damages before he goes anywhere.

Salvatore Capek -- thee Sal -- tells us he's disappointed Jerry is "abusing the legal system by fabricating allegations," and he's looking forward to exposing his lies during trial.

EXCLUSIVE

Jeremy Piven is a full service star ... he stars in movies, and then screens them with his fans and buys them all popcorn. 

Jeremy was at The Grove Wednesday night, grabbing some dinner before catching a showing of  "Entourage."  We suggested free popcorn would be a good idea and he wholeheartedly agreed.

Thing is ... Jeremy made good on his promise, which blew moviegoers away. 

He's leaving for England to shoot Season 4 of his hit TV show, "Mr. Selfridge," so from now on, you'll have to buy your own.

Tyrese Awesome Ari Gold Rant!!!

EXCLUSIVE

"Entourage" and TMZ have partnered on the release of the movie, and we had an idea ... let's get a celebrity to do an Ari Gold rant.

We asked a bunch of celebs to try their mouth at Jeremy Piven's famous, brash character, and Tyrese came through in a big way.

He sent us his version ... which is shot like a movie.  The scene ... Tyrese is in the middle of a meeting, discussing his album #BlackRose which is coming out July 10th, when an intern shows up with grub.

Pity the poor guy who delivered the wrong fast food.  Short story ... you don't give a Presbyterian a burger.

EXCLUSIVE

Kevin Connolly says the "Entourage" cameo wish list was fulfilled with the exception of one BIG star.

Kevin was leaving The Nice Guy nightclub in WeHo Saturday, when we asked about the most elusive big star.

Producers pretty much got what they wanted ... special appearances by Pharrell, Tom Brady, Liam Neeson, Calvin Harris, Jessica Alba, Ronda Rousey, Billy Bob Thorton and Haley Joel Osment.

But one guy said no.  Hint ... he's big in physical stature, but way bigger in global stature.
