Drake Introduced Taylor to His Mom, But ...

10/27/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1026_drake_taylor_swift_tmzDrake gave Taylor Swift the VIP treatment at his 30th birthday bash, including some QT with his mom -- normally an early sign of dating -- but that's not the case ... this time.

Sources connected to Drake tell us he introduced Swift to his mom and several of his homies during the Sunday night party in WeHo. TayTay's not a regular at Drizzy's legendary parties ... which is why he wanted to make sure she met his inner circle, including Mom. After all, she's arguably the biggest female music star on the planet.

1026_Drake_taylor_swift_2013_vma_gettyOf course, the special care sparked all sorts of post-party reports Drake and Taylor were getting hot and heavy at the event -- and we're told they are close, but only friends. They have been for years, in fact, they hung out at the 2013 VMAs.

So, no banging here. Besides, that's RiRi's job.


Manny Pacquiao Filipino Prez Should 'Cool Down' ... We Want U.S. Relations

10/27/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Manny Pacquiao is calling for the Philippines President to "cool down" when it comes to slamming the United States -- reminding him that most Filipino people WANT a relationship with the U.S.

FYI, President Rodrigo Duterte has been on an anti-U.S. tear lately -- calling Obama a "son of a bitch" back in September and leading the charge for his country to "separate" from America.

In fact, just this week Duterte called for the removal of all U.S. troops and bases from the Philippines.

Enter Manny -- who's a SENATOR in the Philippines but trains, works and lives (part-time) in the U.S.

So, how does he feel about the hostile situation?

"We're not cutting off the relationship with the Philippines and the United States," Manny told TMZ Sports at Wild Card Gym in L.A.

He explained how surveys in the Philippines show most people want a relationship with the U.S. -- and his president needs to "cool down ... and realize everything."

Not into politics? We also asked about a possible Mayweather rematch. Enjoy.

The Kardashians Makeup Artist Accused of Fat Shaming Kid

10/27/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1021-Joyce-Bonelli-instagramThe Kardashians' makeup artist is harassing her fiance's ex-wife and fat shaming his son, according to new legal docs.

Joyce Bonelli -- who flaunts her Kardashian ties on Instagram -- also used her social media to call Beth Taverniti a "handbag hoe" and a "ghetto bitch" ... according to Beth's request for a restraining order.

Beth also took their feud to court because she says Bonelli is bullying the son she has with Ben Taverniti, who's currently engaged to Bonelli. In the docs, Beth says Bonelli sent texts about the 5-year-old ... saying he's 45-60 pounds overweight and "the fat around his neck is getting so thick he doesn't breathe well."

Beth says Joyce has a huge following on social media -- including 1.7 million on IG -- because of her link to the Kardashians, which makes her posts way more humiliating.

Beth's restraining order request was denied, but there's a hearing later this month where she'll try to convince a judge she needs protection.

10/26/2016 3:06 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1026_larsa_pippen_nail_salon_florida_launch_2Here's Larsa Pippen -- we don't know what's in her future but we know what's behind her ... THAT ASS! 

Just days after her split from Scottie Pippen, Larsa was showing off her insane physique on her way into a nail shop near her home in Fort Lauderdale ... walking around in a pair of tight booty shorts. 

Worth noting ... no ring on Larsa's finger -- which isn't a huge surprise considering the cops responded to TWO incidents involving her and Scottie earlier this month. 

Larsa was also asked about her relationship with Future before speeding off in her sick black Ferrari ... which looked ALMOST as good leaving as she did. 

Michael Phelps Secretly Married for Months

10/26/2016 2:08 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1026-doc-michael-phelps-nicole-johnson-instagram-launch-02Michael Phelps tied the knot with Nicole Johnson months ago, but they kept it under wraps ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

We've learned the couple has been married since June 13th. The ceremony went down in Paradise Valley, AZ, where they just moved. It was officiated by Peter Carlisle, Michael's agent and longtime friend.

Michael and Nicole got the marriage license June 9th and filed the Record of Marriage June 15th.

It's fascinating. During the Olympics, when everyone was reporting they were engaged, they had already been married for 2 months. 

We did find a clue ... on June 13th -- their wedding day -- Nicole posted a pic of the 2 of them casually dressed with the baby in tow with the caption, "Such a memorable night with my lil fambam."

And get this ... Michael did a Facebook Live last week and when some fans suggested he was already married he flatly denied it.

Belated congrats!!!

10/26/2016 3:12 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1026-lena-heady-tmzLena Headey violated her custody agreement with her ex-husband by keeping their son in the U.K., and a judge has just ordered her to come back to L.A. with the kid.

Ex-hubby Peter Loughran was in court Wednesday when the judge made it clear ... the 'GoT' star went crosswise with the 2013 custody agreement by enrolling 6-year-old Wylie in school without Peter's permission.

Peter wanted Wylie returned stat -- the boy was supposed to come back Sept. 5th -- but the judge cut Lena some slack and gave her until the show wraps to return him to L.A.

Lena wanted to keep Wylie in England permanently, because she felt the U.S. school system sucked.

The custody agreement gives Peter visitation 10 days a month. Until Wylie comes back home, Lena has to pay for Peter's travel.

TMZ broke the story ... Peter got pissed when Lena moved with their kid to the U.K. after she claimed he agreed they'd both live there and share custody.

Exclusive Details

1026-jules-michael-wainstein-tmzJules Wainstein's ex tried to pull a fast one by renting out an NYC apartment he had no business hawking because SHE owns it ... according to a new lawsuit, but he denies any wrongdoing.

Michael Wainstein is being sued by Jonathan Sheffer -- a famous conductor -- who says he needed to lease a place for his nanny, and Michael offered the pad ... at a premium. In the suit, Sheffer says Michael demanded more than $20k for rent, security deposit and broker fees.

Sheffer agreed and signed the lease, but according to the docs ... he had maintenance issues with the place, which led to his big discovery -- Michael wasn't the owner.

Sheffer thinks Michael was taking the cash for personal use. He's suing for a complete refund, plus damages.

Wainstein's attorney tells us Sheffer's the one in the wrong, and claims he breached the terms of the lease and is simply looking for "a creative way to cancel his obligations." He adds ... Michael denies all the allegations, and plans to file his own lawsuit against Sheffer.
