Exclusive Details

Ricki Lake plans to honor the memory of her late ex-husband, Christian Evans, by spreading his ashes at the same place they got engaged.

Ricki posted a pic Friday of herself near a beach in Ibiza, with the caption ... "Es Vedra and me. #magical #Ibiza. Bringing my beloved home. #christianevans #loveiseternal." 

Sources close to the former talk show host tell TMZ she's there to spread Christian's ashes because that's where he popped the question to her, and it's a place they visited often as a couple.

We're told Christian introduced Ricki to Ibiza years ago, and they went there every summer since. They were still very much in love, despite getting divorced in 2014.

As we reported ... Ricki announced her ex-husband's death earlier this year, saying he succumbed to his mental illness -- bipolar disorder. It was later discovered he committed suicide.

Lena Dunham Was Right to Give Away Her Dog ... Says Doggie Rehab Center

7/7/2017 4:36 PM PDT
Exclusive Details

Lena Dunham made a difficult and painful, but ultimately correct choice to relocate the terrier mix she'd rescued ... at least according to the people who tried to treat the dog's aggressive behavior. 

Lena's been catching heat from BARC, the Brooklyn animal shelter where she adopted Lamby. BARC was pissed to find out she no longer has the pooch ... which she says she had to give away due to behavioral issues. The shelter denies he was aggressive, calling him as "mild-mannered and very well behaved."

To be clear ... Lena didn't abandon Lamby altogether. Instead, she sent him to THE ZEN DOG in L.A., which specializes in working with dogs with behavior issues. The facility's owner, Matt Beisner, says Lamby would get scared and then aggressive every time someone tried touching his neck or head. He says they treated him for more than year, and during that time he bit 3 staff members ... drawing blood each time.

Beisner says he doesn't think BARC saw Lamby's true colors. He says it's common for dogs to act differently inside shelters, and stands by Lena's decision. He adds ... one of his former staffers ended up adopting Lamby, and the dog is doing much better now.

It's clear, Lena was very torn about relocating her dog. She set the record straight after BARC and animal rights groups lashed out and accused her of animal cruelty.

It's come to my attention that the staff at the shelter where I adopted Lamby have a very different account of his early life and behavioral issues than I do. While I'm sorry to have disappointed them, I can't apologize. Lamby was and is one of the great loves of my life. When I met him I knew we'd have an amazing journey. But his aggression - which was unpredictable- and his particular issues, which remain myriad, weren't manageable, at least not by me. I did what I thought the best mother would do, which was to give him a life that provided for his specific needs. He'd been with me for nearly four years and I was his mom- I was in the best position to discern what those needs were. After countless hours of training, endless financial support and a lot of tears he was given access to a better life. I still support him financially and I'll always be there for him in every way but he's notably happier in his new surroundings. Why should this story be subject to scrutiny and anger? It is willfully misunderstanding the truth. I hope those judging can imagine the incredible pain of letting go of your favorite creature on EARTH because you know you can't help them be healthy and happy. I would never say an unkind word about the staff of BARC, what they do is amazing and life saving for these animals- but we have different accounts of Lamby's behavior and they were not present in my home nor did they live with him for an extended period. They did not witness the consistent and responsible care I provided. I have weathered a lot of micro-scandals but this one hurts MOST, because of the vulnerability of letting people know Lamby and my story, and because I miss him so damn much. This is the painting that greets me every day when I walk into my home. This is the animal who taught me about loving and letting go. I know I'm a lot of fun to place your issues on, but I won't let anyone hang their hat on this peg. Not this time.

7:30 PM PT -- A rep for Floyd Mayweather wants to make it clear that the boxer has NO affiliation with "The Mayweather Experience."

The workouts do go down at Mayweather's gym ... but the rep says Floyd makes no money off the camp, and has absolutely no involvement in its operation.

Floyd Mayweather's private Vegas boxing gym has opened its doors for normies -- like you -- to train with Floyd's REAL boxing team ... but it ain't for the poor. 

It's called "The Mayweather Experience" -- and for $650 a pop, regular people will get their hands wrapped by Floyd's guys, step into Floyd's ring and hit the mitts with Floyd's dad, Mayweather Sr. 

It's essentially a 2-hour fantasy camp for Mayweather-aholics to see if they can make it through TBE's legendary grueling workouts. 

Got rich friends? Mayweather's gym is offering training camp packages for groups -- a 6-some will run you $3,500. 

We're told Floyd's team has been offering the workout for about a month so far and it's been going great.

Not too late for Conor to sign up ...

7/5/2017 2:35 PM PDT
Exclusive Details

The Baton Rouge Police Dept. tells TMZ Sports ... there is no probable cause to arrest LSU linebacker Jacob Phillips for rape due to "several inconsistencies" in the accuser's story. 

We broke the story ... Phillips -- a highly recruited linebacker -- was investigated for sexual assault following allegations from a female LSU student athlete. 

We've confirmed cops were called to a Baton Rouge hospital on June 11 to respond to the accuser -- who claims she was sexually assaulted by Phillips early that morning. 

The case was investigated -- and at this point, Phillips has neither been arrested or charged with a crime. 

Now, Baton Rouge PD Sgt. McKneely has issued a statement on the case ... telling TMZ Sports, "Due to several inconsistencies in the victim's narrative/disclosures and a lack of cooperation concerning evidence and further interview there was no probable cause for arrest found at this time."

We spoke with the accuser who is not backing down from the claims -- and says it's the police who aren't cooperating with her. 

We also reached out to LSU for comment -- so far, no word back.

Jesse Williams Fighting Estranged Wife Over Custody

7/5/2017 1:33 PM PDT
Exclusive Details

Jesse Williams' hopes for an amicable divorce just went down the toilet ... he's now in a nasty custody fight with his estranged wife.

The "Grey's Anatomy" star filed docs saying he went above and beyond to informally handle custody issues with Aryn Drake-Lee. Jesse filed for divorce back in April and we were told things were civil. But Jesse says it's now turned into a legal war.

In docs obtained by TMZ, Jesse's asking to get more time with 3-year-old Sadie and 2-year-old Maceo, claiming Aryn only lets him see them shy of 3 hours a day and she refuses to allow sleepovers.

Jesse says he rented a home less than 3 miles from Aryn's home so he could be close to the kids. To prove he's a hands-on dad, Jesse listed their nicknames and their favorite food -- mac & cheese for "Sadie Munchkin" and "anything we put in front of 'Mace.'"

Still ... Jesse says Aryn's made things impossible so he's asking the judge to step in and issue a formal custody agreement.

Kendall & Kylie Jenner This Is the End of Your T-Shirts ... The Doors Will Sue!

Exclusive Details

Kendall and Kylie Jenner's vintage t-shirt line pissed off rock legend band The Doors, and now the iconic group's going to sue.

Lawyers for the band fired off a cease and desist letter to the Jenner sisters over the gear ... which features a famous pic of Jim Morrison covered by a Kendall selfie. The letter, dated Thursday, says the t-shirt line tarnishes their trademark. The shirt also features the band's logo.

As we reported, the sisters removed the t-shirt line completely on Thursday -- after getting a similar threat from the estate of Notorious B.I.G. -- and apologized for offending all artists included on the tees including Ozzy Osbourne, Pink Floyd, Tupac and of course, The Doors.

We're told Team Doors isn't satisfied. A source connected to the estates tell us the damage has been done, and they'll be pursuing a lawsuit.

Rihanna's New Guy Accepts Guinness Records Challenge But ...

6/28/2017 11:51 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

Rihanna's new beau is certainly up for a new challenge -- whether it's landing a smoking hot chick or lining up hundreds of cars to smash world records.

Hassan Jameel -- the guy RiRi was sucking face with in Spain -- accepted a challenge from Guinness back in 2013 to break the world record for the largest Toyota car parade. Makes sense -- Hassan's the heir to Saudi Arabia's largest Toyota distributor.

But we did a little digging and a rep at Guinness tells TMZ no application's been submitted from Saudi Arabia Toyota since Hassan accepted the challenge. Colombia and South Africa, however, did apply.

The current record holder is Toyota Cyprus ... which paraded 742 whips back in 2015. If you're wondering what the hell a Toyota car parade is ... think your local highway at rush hour, with ONLY Toyotas.
