Kelly may want to talk things out with his boy Wiz Khalifa -- the guy Amber called the love of her life earlier this month. They share the beat in "Mind of a Stoner," but that doesn't necessarily mean he's cool with sharing the mother of his kid.

We can't figure out whether she has a type.

Andrew Getty -- the grandson of billionaire titan J. Paul Getty -- was targeted in death by thieves who stole some very expensive flatware. 

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, within 2 weeks of his death at the end of March, burglars broke into his gated home near Mulholland Drive and stole his silverware.

Cops tell us the thieves gained entry by forcing open a door.

The 47-year-old heir, whose father was reportedly worth $2 billion, had all sorts of eccentric items, including mechanical devices for a horror film he was producing.

We're told as far as cops know, the only thing the thieves took was silverware. Weird.

Don't Do Reality TV!!!

EXCLUSIVE

0424-kim-jenners-getty-04In a truly weird turn, Bruce Jenner's sons, along with Kim Kardashian, are warning him to slow down on revealing too much of his journey on reality TV.

Sources connected with Bruce's brood tell us, Kim and the boys think Bruce was spectacular on the Diane Sawyer special and won over millions of people in the process.

They say they're worried Bruce's upcoming docuseries might "de-class" what he's accomplished. We're told they also urged Bruce not to do other interviews and finish the process in private.

We're told some of the kids have gone to their dad to express their concern, but the ship has sailed. Bruce believes the docuseries will educate people and create empathy, so he's committed.

We're also told Bruce's kids won't appear on his show.

Now that's strange.

Courtney Love Sued

You Dropped Me ...

But You Still Have to Pay Me!

EXCLUSIVE

Courtney Love Biography
Courtney Love's biographer -- one of the best in the biz -- says he went through hell to write her life story ... and claims his reward was getting canned without notice, and then shortchanged on his paycheck.

Anthony Bozza is suing Love, claiming he got paid $100,000 for his work ... but their deal calls for him to get paid an additional $200k.

Bozza -- who has written with the likes of Slash, Tommy Lee, Tracy Morgan and Artie Lange -- claims he incurred $10,000 in expenses ... and didn't receive a dime in reimbursement. He also claims Love would disappear for months at a time, which caused him to deliver the manuscript late.

In the end, Bozza claims he was never officially fired, but says Love texted him that she was "fixing" the book, and she'd already hired a new writer to rework his version. 

Bozza is suing for breach of contract and wants the $200k he claims he's owed, plus interest.

EXCLUSIVE

Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom are NOT ready to divorce ... in fact, they're secretly talking.

Sources connected to both Khloe and Lamar tell TMZ, the 2 of them are not romantic and are not talking reconciliation, but they don't want to close the door on the marriage either. That explains why Khloe's divorce has been laying dormant in the courts for more than a year ... the judge has even said if she doesn't s*** or get off the pot, he'll dismiss it.

Our Lamar sources says there's bad blood on both sides.  It's not as if he's begging her to reconcile ... he feels betrayed by Khloe as well. The Lamar sources say she's told him he has to make some sort of "grand gesture" before they can go the next step, and so far he's not willing to do it.

For her part, we're told she has "a big heart" and doesn't want to hurt him by sealing the deal on the divorce.  But it's more than just mercy ... we're told she still has feelings for him.

0422-khloe-kardashian-lo-tattoo-instagram-01As for the pic Khloe posted showing her "LO" tattoo on a gearshift ... we're told it's not a sign she's going back with Lamar ... she just digs her new Bentley.

Madonna Male Model

Madonna tried to holla at a hot shirtless male model -- who's 33 years younger than her -- but proving she' still got game ... we found out the guy's willing to give her a shot! 

The model's name is Andrea Denver -- and his bod is definitely worthy of Madge's Instagram, which included the caption: "8 pac!! Hell to the yeah!!!" She threw in a bunch of heart emojis too ... which might come off as kinda thirsty, except for the fact Andrea's totally down.  

Sources close to Andrea tell us he saw the IG and his reaction was, "I'd definitely go on a date with her." Taking a page out of Drake's playbook ... we're told Andrea also gushed the 56-year-old is "really attractive" -- and he's always been a big fan.

0424-SUB-madonna-adrea-denver-INSTAGRAM-01Madonna and Andrea have never met, but according to our sources ... he's excited there's now a chance. He's hoping she follows through and hooks it up.

Even if the romantic thing doesn't flesh out -- Andrea says he'd be down to work in one of her music videos. He's got experience with Taylor Swift and J.Lo ... music vids, that is. 

As for the fact she could be his mother -- we're told Andrea says age doesn't scare him, since he's more interested in a woman's personality.
