Michael Phelps One More Gold Medal ... For Epic Wedding Day Video

12/16/2016 10:39 AM PST

And now there's one more thing Michael Phelps does better than everyone else -- his big wedding to Nicole was captured in a Hollywood-style video.

The folks over at Brides got a hold of the video, which set the stage for the Olympic legend's Cabo wedding back in October. You get to see Nicole and Michael prepping for the ceremony, and the setting is downright epic.

The entire production is gold medal-worthy. Naturally.

Nicely done.

Jodie Foster's Wife First John Hinckley ... Now There's a New Threat to Our Family

12/15/2016 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Jodie Foster has a new obsessed fan -- on top of having to deal with John Hinckley Jr.'s prison release -- and the new one is tracking her everywhere she goes ... according to Jodie's wife.

Her spouse, Alexandra Hedison, got a restraining order against Celine Martelleur ... who's popped up at Alex and Jodie's Bev Hills home, and also in Toronto when Jodie was filming there.

Alexandra says Martelleur has repeatedly professed love for Jodie -- mostly in creepy emails, one of which said, "I am still in Toronto until next month. I am around avoiding cops. Jodie is in my thoughts every minute."

In the docs, Alexandra says she was home on Dec. 9 when Martelleur buzzed at their security gate. When Alexandra asked via intercom who it was, she says Martelleur replied, "Celine, you should know who it is." She called cops, but law enforcement sources tell us officers didn't arrest Martelleur because there was no protective order.

Alexandra's taken care of that -- the restraining order requires Martelleur to stay 100 yards away from Jodie, Alexandra and their 2 kids. In her docs, she refers to Jodie's history with "mentally troubled" people like Hinckley, who "shot President Ronald Reagan in 1981 based on his obsessive fixation with [Jodie]."

Kylie Jenner Keeps Pad in the Fam ... Renting to Rob & Blac Chyna

12/13/2016 3:05 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kylie Jenner's putting one of her empty cribs to good use -- we're told she's renting it out to Rob and Blac Chyna.

The new mom and pop moved into the Hidden Hills, CA home this week, and the reason's simple -- Rob and Blac wanted a bigger pad, and to be closer to Kris and Kim's nearby homes with baby Dream now in the picture.

As TMZ reported, BC's house in Tarzana was supposed to be home base once Dream arrived. But that plan's changed, and we're told Rob's still working out leasing terms with his little sis.

This is the same 6 bedroom, 7 bath spread where Chyna recently posed with King Cairo ... Christmas lights and all.

Kardashian Sisters to Blac Chyna Marrying Rob Won't Get You A Pass To Profit Off Our Name

12/10/2016 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian are sticking to their guns when it comes to stopping Blac Chyna from the family name -- and neither marriage nor their mom will change that.

Sources close to the sisters tell us they will not withdraw their opposition to Chyna's application to trademark "Angela Renee Kardashian" -- despite Chyna's side saying there's no legal war brewing.

As we told you, BC sources say Kris Jenner reached out and promised to call off the lawyers. But our K sis sources say that's not how they feel about it. We're told it's nothing personal against BC, just biz -- they feel adding an extra woman to the roster will dilute the brand they've worked so hard to build. 

We're told they think it's odd Chyna didn't move for a trademark when she was with Tyga -- although that's kinda apples and oranges. $1 if you know his last name.

Our sources close to Kris say the conversation those close to Chyna alleged the two had to smooth things over never even took place. 

On a personal level, we're told everyone in the fam is getting along well with Chyna since the birth of Dream. Still, business is business and our sources say the sisters' lawyers have made several attempts to negotiate ... but Chyna's team's gone radio silent.

Will Smith New Movie Can Flop For All I Care ... It Helped Me Heal

12/9/2016 8:22 AM PST

Will Smith doesn't give a damn how his new movie does at the box office or how many awards it might grab ... because it helped him cope with his dad's death, and to him, that's all that matters. 

Smith did a Q&A on Facebook Live from the company's headquarters Thursday and opened up about how "Collateral Beauty" made dealing with his dad's death easier. In the movie, Smith plays a man whose daughter dies ... and Will says he learned his dad had cancer just as film prep started. 

Will says the film allowed him to open up to his dad as he battled with cancer ... and when he passed in November, it was easier for him to say goodbye. 

Check out the clip ... you can tell Will's words really come from the heart. 

Kardashians & Blac Chyna Cease-fire Called in Family Name War ... For Now

12/9/2016 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Blac Chyna got railroaded by the Kardashians' attorneys -- not the K sisters themselves -- in her effort to trademark herself as a member of the fam ... and now Kris Jenner's doing damage control.

Sources close to BC tell TMZ ... KimKourtney, and Khloe reached out to her and assured her their lawyers were following standard ops when they filed docs to block Chyna's application to trademark "Angela Renee Kardashian" -- not singling her out.

The assurances were necessary after the language the lawyers used. We broke the story ... the docs said all 3 sisters would "suffer damage including irreparable injury to their reputation and goodwill" if Chyna got the green light to use the Kardashian name in entertainment.

We're told Kris personally told Chyna there's no beef ... it was a simple mix-up and she's calling off the legal eagles. For now, everyone's saying the right things to make Chyna feel better about the legal diss -- but, fact is, her trademark still hasn't been approved.

Until it is ... it's a lot of lip service.

Chris Paul to Kobe: Congrats on the Kid, But 'Keep Going Til You Have a Boy!'

12/9/2016 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Chris Paul is super happy that his friend, Kobe Bryant, just had his 3rd baby girl -- but he has a message for the NBA legend ... "Keep going 'til you get a boy!"

"Kobe deserves to have a little boy, man" ... the Clippers superstar added. 

We're guessing CP3 wants Kobe to experience the same father/son basketball bond he shares with his kid (it's adorable) ... and let's be honest, everyone would LOVE to see another Bryant in the NBA one day!

For the record, Kobe already has a kid with the family hoops skills -- his 10-year-old daughter, Gianna, is rumored to have a LIGHTS OUT jumper.

Plus, boys are messy anyway.

Angelina Jolie Our Kids Are Still Traumatized ... We Need a Specialist

12/8/2016 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Angelina Jolie is imploring Brad Pitt to help find a new professional to help them and their children deal with the "trauma" of what happened on their private jet 3 months ago.

Angelina's attorney fired off an email to Brad's legal team on December 1, proposing they "participate in joint sessions with a trauma specialist so that they may learn how to best support and interact with their children."

The request makes it clear -- Jolie thinks the kids are so bad off because of what they witnessed on the plane, and the therapy process they've been going through isn't getting the job done. As we've reported, both sides agreed in September to attend family therapy sessions as part of their temporary custody agreement.

Another sign the situation is still dire -- in docs, Brad's attorney suggested their 2 eldest boys, Maddox and Pax, might not want to visit with their dad.

One source tells us the boys walked out of one session in the past, and have refused to attend others.

It's important to note ... DCFS closed out its investigation after concluding Brad did nothing that warranted official action.  DCFS could have referred the case to dependency court if it felt the kids were in danger, or recommended criminal prosecution ... it did neither.

It's unclear if he's responded to Angelina's request.

Kim, Khloe & Kourtney Crush Blac Chyna's Biz Dreams ... You'll Never Be One of Us

12/7/2016 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Just because Blac Chyna's marrying a Kardashian doesn't mean she can get in the club -- the Kardashian sisters are going to war to block her from cashing in on the family name.

According to docs obtained by TMZ ... Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney's companies are opposing Chyna's request to trademark "Angela Renee Kardashian" -- which she was trying to lock down for use while working in entertainment, and also on social media.

The mean girls sisters throw down the gauntlet in docs, saying if Chyna gets the trademark they'll "suffer damage including irreparable injury to their reputation and goodwill."

Translation: stay in your ex-stripper lane ... you're not one of us.

Make no mistake ... this is nasty. In the docs, they say Chyna is "deliberately seeking to profit from the goodwill and popularity" of the Kardashian name.

Merry Christmas to all!

Lady Gaga & Taylor Kinney Some Exes Don't Talk ... We're Different

12/6/2016 3:20 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Sorry Little Monsters, Lady Gaga and ex-fiance Taylor Kinney are not back together -- despite a pic of him with her mom -- the exes are just doing the conscious uncoupling thing.

Gaga and Kinney called it quits in July after 5 years together, so fans freaked when he showed up on Gaga's Instagram this week. Sources tell us they still have a great relationship and talk from time to time.

Kinney happened to be in NYC and found out Gaga's Born This Way Foundation was doing the Shared Kindness event at 30 Rock. Gaga's in Europe but her mom, Cynthia, helps run the foundation and Taylor offered to help her out.

Gaga was moved enough to post the pic of them at the fundraiser.

Angelina Jolie Angling for London with Kids and U.N.'s Top Job ... Sources Say

12/6/2016 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Angelina Jolie has an endgame in her claims Brad Pitt abused one or more of their children -- she wants to move to London with the kids and score a top position in the United Nations ... sources connected with the couple tell TMZ.

Several well-placed sources say Brad and Angelina have not gotten along for more than a year, and she's been looking for an opportunity to end the marriage and bolt for her dream job ... with all 6 children in tow. We're told she knew that would be nearly impossible unless Brad's right to joint custody was in jeopardy.

As we reported ... Angelina told L.A. County Dept of Child and Family Services officials Brad brutalized Maddox on a private jet and engaged in other conduct that endangered the children. We know Brad strongly denied intentionally striking Maddox or engaging in any abuse, and DCFS clearly saw it his way ... closing out the investigation without taking any action.

Our sources say Angelina's move to involve DCFS was orchestrated by 2 women she's been relying on for advice for more than a year. One is a member of England's House of Lords, and the other also holds a U.K. government position. We're told they've been in Angelina's ear, convincing her she could become Secretary General of the U.N. if she plays her cards right.

Angelina, who has been paying both women handsomely for their consulting services, is all in and taking their cue that a move to London would help get her closer to the U.N. gig.

The rub, of course, is in order to take her kids out of the country ... she'd have to prove some sort of parental unfitness on Brad's part. So far she's struck out.

Jolie's rep denies there's a move planned and says Angelina is focused on the health and well being of her children. The rep adds, Angelina wants to continue therapy with the kids and Brad.

Our sources are clear and insist Europe and the U.N. post is the ultimate goal. 

The custody war is now in family court -- she wants sole physical custody and he wants joint. We're told Angelina has a slim to none chance of taking the kids 6,000 miles away from Brad.

Prince Jackson Stands Up for Grandma in Court

12/5/2016 12:16 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

12:53 PM PT -- The judge just ruled Katherine knew exactly what she was doing when she replaced her previous attorney with Joy Bass ... saying there is no question in his mind. 

Prince Jackson looked like man on a mission ... all in the name of his grandmother, Katherine Jackson.

Michael's son appeared in a Santa Monica court Monday for a hearing regarding Katherine getting a new attorney. The new lawyer is Joy Bass, and she says she's now representing Katherine in all matters related to Michael's estate.

This, apparently, was news to the Katherine's current attorney ... and sources close to the family tell TMZ Prince is in court now to tell the judge they're disputing the new attorney's claim she's now speaking for Katherine.

We got Prince and TJ Jackson (Tito's son) on the way into court and they were tight-lipped.
