Taylor Swift & Calvin Harris Impossible Happens ... Bitter Exes Are Friends Again

9/29/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0928-calvin-harris-taylor-swift-tmz-instagram-02Satan's gonna need a winter coat -- Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris are no longer at war after one of Hollywood's nastiest breakups, and are firmly in the friend zone.

Sources close to the former couple tell TMZ ... shortly after Taylor and Tom Hiddleston broke up, Taylor and Calvin started texting and put an end to their drama.

It's unclear who hit send first, but here's what we do know -- we're told this is NOT a rekindling of the old fire. Also, they have NOT spoken on the phone or seen each other in person. It's strictly text, but it's been enough to erase the resentment that exploded after the June breakup ... and that mess about who wrote "This Is What You Came For."

There's been buzz Calvin's new single, "My Way," is about getting over Taylor, but that had nothing to do with their decision to bury the hatchet. Besides, we're told it's really inspired by his old job at a grocery store.

Nothing romantic ... which is exactly how both sides describe the renewed friendship. 

Rob Kardashian Chyna Wants a Rapper ... Not Me, Supersized

9/29/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0928_blac_chyna_rob_kardashian_tmz-gettyRob Kardashian and Blac Chyna have been fighting for months, partially because he's convinced she's going to leave him for a rapper.

Sources close to the parents-to-be say Rob's never been comfortable with aspects of Chyna's past. For instance, we're told he's brought up her relationships with Tyga and Future. Our source says she had to stop listening to certain songs when Rob was around because he once told her point-blank, "You'd rather date a rapper than a fat Armenian."

As we previously reported, Rob's spiraled back into depression, and has put on weight while they've been on the outs. Their convos these days are tense ... especially if Chyna suggests he work out and eat healthy. He takes it as an insult, but we're told she's concerned about his health.

Suffice to say, the days of couples workout sessions are a thing of the past.

Conor McGregor 'I'm Ready to Fight Mayweather'

9/29/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Here we go again ...

Conor McGregor sounds like he's still VERY serious about squaring off with Floyd Mayweather -- telling TMZ Sports, "I told you I'm ready for that fight!"

Conor dropped Floyd's name at the UFC 205 media event earlier this week -- saying he might need to set up a bout with the boxing legend after he runs through all the big names in the UFC.

Of course, Conor and Floyd tried to get this thing going earlier this year, but it fizzled out.

We spoke with Floyd on Tuesday and he told us there's still a chance the two will get it on ... but hinted that it's all about getting the money right.

Fingers crossed ...

Jim Carrey V-Day Pics Prove Late GF's Marriage Was Bogus

9/29/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0928_jim_carrey_cathriona_white_valentines_day_2013_photos_launchJim Carrey posed for intimate Valentine's Day photos with his then-girlfriend -- and the timing of the shots prove her marriage was a total sham and a "green card marriage"... according to Carrey's attorney.

TMZ obtained the shots of Jim and Cathriona White from February 14, 2013. They show your standard romantic couple -- dinner, rose petals, kissing. What's odd about the scene is ... Cathriona had married Mark Burton on January 15 ... according to their marriage certificate.

Jim's attorney says this flies in the face of Burton's claim he suffered loss of companionship when White died from an overdose ... which is part of the wrongful death suit.

Carrey's camp and witnesses say Cathriona had asked 5 other men, including Jim, to marry her to avoid deportation to Ireland-- and she didn't even live in the same state as Burton when they wed.

Burton's lawyer says, "Carrey and his 'fixers' need to stop lying," and he stands by his previous statements about Jim and Cathriona.

EXCLUSIVE

0927-anthony-michael-hall-tmz-01Anthony Michael Hall takes delight in squirting his next-door neighbor with a water hose, but now he's been ordered to knock it off ... according to court docs.

We broke the story ... the 'Breakfast Club' star was allegedly caught on video getting in the neighbor's face, shoving him to the ground and breaking his wrist.

In docs obtained by TMZ, the neighbor says that attack is just the most recent. Additionally, he says Hall shoots him menacing looks and frequently uses his hose to spray him and his patio. He went to court for a temporary restraining order, and the judge sided with him ... instructing Hall to stop all harassment.

These guys are like the new Hatfields and McCoys -- Hall was arrested for disturbing the peace in 2011, and the neighbor says he was involved in that case too.

UFC's Jeremy Stephens Fires Back At Conor McGregor 'I'll Mop The Floor With You'

EXCLUSIVE

0928-jeremy-stephens-conor-mcgregor-instagram-tmz-01UFC fighter Jeremy Stephens vows REVENGE against Conor McGregor for trashing him at the UFC 205 media event -- telling TMZ Sports he'll "mop the floor" with the Irish superstar. 

Conor dissed the hell out of Stephens during the event -- when he turned to the UFC veteran and shouted, "Who the fuck is that guy?!" 

The clip went viral -- but now, Stephens is firing back in a scathing statement in which he refers to Conor as "McClown" -- and blasts him as a "bully" who can't hold his own against real fighters. 

"Media and UFC like to fuel this guy's fictional character to always bully and disrespect other fighters like it's funny," Stephens says. 

"I can't accept that and will mop the floor with him."

He adds, "I've been humbling bullies and disrespectful guys like him since grade school."

There's a lot more in the full statement (see below) -- Stephens clearly hopes to settle the score with Conor inside the Octagon. 

By the way, Stephens ain't no bitch -- he's been fighting in the UFC since 2007 and is currently the #7 ranked featherweight.

Frances Bean Cobain Forced to Pay Ex While Working On Divorce

9/28/2016 4:33 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0928_Frances-Bean-Cobain_Isaiah-Silva_gettyFrances Bean Cobain is going to fork over nearly $50k in emergency relief to her estranged husband until the dust settles in their divorce ... TMZ has learned. 

A judge signed off on an agreement for Frances to pay Isaiah Silva $12,000 a month for the next 4 months. The dough is temporary spousal support to carry him over until they wrap up the divorce battle. According to the docs, Frances and Isaiah are going to mediation during the 4 month period.

Frances will also have to pay $15k toward his attorney fees. For Isaiah's part, he was ordered out of their house 10 days ago. 

The exes were married less than 2 years. As we previously reported ... he's aiming for $25k per month when it's all said and done. Mediation should be interesting. 

Derrick Rose Dragged Tupac Shakur Into Rape Case ... Treat Me Like Him!

9/28/2016 4:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0928-derrick-rose-tupac-getty-01Derrick Rose is turning to Tupac Shakur in the hopes of getting the judge to force his rape accuser to reveal her identity during the trial ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

As we previously reported, Rose believes it's completely unfair for his accuser to hide behind a pseudonym while trashing him and talking about the case to the media.

The judge initially ruled she must use her real name -- but the woman is fighting back and Rose has filed new court docs arguing why she must be unmasked. 

So, to help convince a judge to see it his way, Rose dug up Tupac Shakur's old sexual assault case -- a case in which a judge forced the rapper's accuser to reveal her identity. 

Brief history lesson ... Tupac was convicted of 1st degree sexual assault over a 1993 incident in which the rapper forced a 19-year-old woman to perform oral sex on him and his friends.

Pac served 9 months in prison for the crime and was then sued in civil court -- where the woman tried to use a pseudonym to protect her identity. 

Tupac objected -- and the judge sided with him ... claiming the woman and her legal team tried to gain a "tactical advantage" in the case through public statements trashing Pac ... and it wasn't fair. 

Now, in the new court docs filed by Rose, he cites Tupac's case and says the situations are almost identical -- with his accuser looking to bash him in the media to gain an unfair advantage in the courtroom. 

"Mr. Rose would be placed at a serious disadvantage if he were required to defend himself publicly while Ms. Doe could make her accusations from behind a cloak of anonymity."

The judge is set to rule on the matter on Thursday. Stay tuned ... 

Ex-'Dancing' Contestant Busted for DUI

9/28/2016 3:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0928-victor-ortiz-tmz-01More legal trouble for ex-boxing champ Victor Ortiz -- who was arrested for DUI in California over the weekend ... TMZ Sports has learned.

We've confirmed ... the 29-year-old movie star and former "Dancing With the Stars" contestant was arrested on Saturday evening. 

Law enforcement sources say Ortiz was pulled over in a BMW around 7 PM for expired registration tags -- and when the officer approached the car, they suspected Ortiz was hammered. 

He then bombed field sobriety tests and was arrested for misdemeanor DUI. 

He was booked and has since been released. We reached out to Ortiz, but so far no official comment. 

Here's the real problem for Ortiz -- he's already on probation stemming from a 2015 battery at a Kenny Chesney concert at the Rose Bowl.

If Ortiz's probation is revoked because of the DUI -- the judge could have him locked up. 

French Montana Cops Profiled Me That's Why I Called 'em Out

EXCLUSIVE

0928-french-montana-tmzFrench Montana's adamant his "Black lives matter" shout-out wasn't a wisecrack at cops -- instead he was reacting to what he saw as harassment of his crew ... for no good reason.

The rapper tells TMZ, NYPD pulled over his SUV just one block from Aces strip club where they were partying. He says the officers told them they were checking to see if the driver had been drinking.

French says his guy was sober and when all his paperwork checked out, they peace'd out.

But he thinks cops were hoping to find something more incriminating. French believes he and his friends were targeted as they left Aces because they're black and famous. He says he only yelled "Black lives matter" to remind the cops it's "pathetic" to stop him for nothing. 

We reached out to NYPD for comment, so far no word back.

She added, "I'm no coward."

"Ronda doesn't want to fight me. She's afraid to say my name in an interview so she has Dana White tell the story for her."
