Ray J's Dog

Boogati Back with His Bottom Bitch

After Battling Depression

10/17/2014 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE
Ray J Dog BoogatiRay J and Princess Love have declared a truce in their bitter breakup and custody battle -- all for the sake of their children puppies.

Princess Love tells TMZ their pet Maltese, Boogati, is now back at home ... reunited with their 3 other dogs. She says Ray J showed mercy because he thought Boogati was depressed.

As we reported ... Ray J took Boogati with him when he broke up with Princess Love and moved out. She claimed the other dogs were constantly crying -- especially Coco ... because she missed the Boog man.

Apparently the feelings were mutual, since we're told Boogati wasn't eating -- but Princess says all the pups are good now ... and claims she'll let Ray visit with them whenever he wants.

Heidi Klum & Seal

Divorce Signed, Sealed and Delivered

10/16/2014 11:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE
Seal Heidi Klum Divorce
Heidi Klum is officially back on the market ... her divorce from Seal became final Tuesday ... and TMZ has learned they've made a clean break ... no problems splitting property and NO spousal support.

Sources close to the pair tell us ... they did not have a prenup, but signed a postnup at some point during their marriage, keeping much of their earnings separate. We're told there were no big fights over money, and they reached a property settlement agreement months ago.

Our sources say neither Heidi nor Seal will get spousal support ... they're both well off -- she more than he.

They've also worked out a confidential arrangement for custody of their 4 kids.

As we reported, Heidi filed for divorce in April 2012.  It started out rocky ... as we reported, Heidi split from Seal because she claimed he had an out-of-control temper that scared her and the kids.

The one thing Heidi demanded and got -- her name back. She's Heidi Klum again.

Heidi's single status may be in jeopardy ... the 41-year-old has been linked to 28-year-old art dealer Vito Schnabel.

No reaction yet from Seal ... but he was pretty clear to us in Sept. 2012 how he felt about Heidi's previous boy toy.

Jenni Rivera Crash

Husband She Ditched

Wants Millions For His Loneliness

10/16/2014 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE
Jenni Rivera CrashJenni Rivera's husband wants $35 million from the owners of the plane that crashed and killed her ... even though the couple had filed divorce papers prior to the crash.

Jenni filed for divorce from former MLB pitcher Esteban Loaiza more than 2 months before the plane she was on went down in December 2012 ... but the paperwork hadn't been finalized when she died, so they were still married.

According to court docs ... Loaiza is suing Starwood Management for $25 million in lost future income, $5 mil in past earnings, and -- get this -- $5 mil more in loss of companionship.

Remember, they'd already separated ... so you'd think the S.S. Companionship would have sailed long before Jenni's death. 

Gotta hand it to him -- pitcher's got balls.

Amanda Bynes

Involuntary Confinement

For Up to 1 Year

10/15/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE
1014_amanda_bynes_hospital_getty
Amanda Bynes is headed for another conservatorship, but we're told it almost certainly will not be at the hands of her parents. Rather, we've learned Amanda's doctors are planning to get the type of conservatorship that can keep her confined and medicated for up to 1 year.

Sources familiar with Amanda's treatment tell TMZ ... the plan is to get an LPS Hold -- something a judge will grant at the behest of doctors but only if the patient is "gravely disabled as a result of a mental disorder or impairment by chronic alcoholism."

The LPS Hold allows doctors to confine Amanda -- at either the hospital or another secure facility -- and administer meds against her will.

The LPS Hold is far more stringent than what her parents could get. The parents could not legally force meds on Amanda nor could they effectively restrain her. We're told Amanda literally hates her parents now after they tricked her into coming to the mental hospital.

You may recall ... doctors got an LPS Hold on Amanda a little more than a year ago after she went off the rails ... ending with lighting a driveway on fire and dousing her dog with gasoline. That LPS Hold expired last month.

Our sources say the doctors will likely ask a judge for a new LPS Hold within a week ... after Amanda is fully diagnosed.

Amanda Bynes

I Hate My Parents

For Deceiving Me

10/14/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE
1013_amanda_bynes_hospital_getty_akm
Amanda Bynes is filled with anger as she sits in a Pasadena mental facility ... after her parents created an elaborate ruse to get her committed.

TMZ broke the story ... Amanda's parents worked with Sam Lutfi to lure her from NYC to LA Friday. Lutfi convinced her to take a car service to what she believed was a Pasadena law office, where she would meet with a lawyer about suing her parents for abuse. The building was actually a mental facility. When she walked in the front door, she was restrained and involuntarily committed.

Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ ... Amanda feels utterly betrayed and says her relationship with her parents is "destroyed forever." Although she's had a poor relationship with her dad, she had warm feelings for her mom ... until Friday.

We're told Amanda is in the women's lockdown section of the facility ... where she is showing fits of anger. Doctors are medicating her, but it takes time for the meds to kick in.

Here's the long-term problem. As TMZ first reported ... Amanda's parents will seek and, almost certainly get, another conservatorship before she leaves the facility in 2 weeks -- doctors got the 72-hour hold extended by 14 days. But everyone involved concedes ... it will be extremely difficult to manage Amanda given her hatred for her parents.

Beyonce & Jay Z

Louvre Us Alone!

10/13/2014 8:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details
1013-beyonce-jayz-mona-lisaBeyonce, Jay Z and baby Blue Ivy hit up the Louvre in Paris and they managed to score the most private tour of the museum ever. 

The power couple posed for a photo in front of the Mona Lisa -- just them and Mona -- and walked around the rest of the place all by their lonesome. 

The photos were taken last Tuesday, the day the museum is closed. A staffer tells TMZ it's not uncommon for people to take private tours on off days.

We're told a small museum staff came in (about 20-25 people), Beyonce and Jay were there for about an hour and a half, and they covered the costs of staffing the joint.

Hard knock life.

Ruse for Psych Hold

Created by Britney Spears 'Bad Guy'

EXCLUSIVE
1010-amanda-parents-getty-01

The person who tricked Amanda Bynes into flying to L.A. where she ended up in a mental ward is none other than the man who some say created life-threatening peril for a then-unstable Britney Spears.

TMZ has learned ... Sam Lutfi -- who Britney's parents say was recklessly medicating her before she was eventually strapped to a stretcher and taken to a psych ward in 2008 -- contacted Amanda Thursday and convinced her to sue her parents. He got her to fly to L.A. so he could hook her up with a lawyer.

1011-britney-and-sam-getty-01
Here's what Amanda DIDN'T know ... Lutfi was secretly working with Amanda's parents and it was all an elaborate ruse to lure her out so doctors could place her on an involuntary psychiatric hold.

We now have more clarification as to how Lutfi pulled it off. He told Amanda her car would be making 2 stops. First, to the lawyer's office in Pasadena and then to the London Hotel in West Hollywood where she would confront her parents and tell them about the lawsuit.

She never got to the London, because the driver went to a Pasadena hospital which looked like an office building.  Amanda thought she was going to see the lawyer but when she walked inside she was surrounded by hospital staff.

TMZ broke the story ... Amanda was placed on a 72-hour psych hold which can be extended for 14 days.  We're told during that time her parents will attempt to get another conservatorship.

Lutfi -- who has always said he was actually protecting Britney -- is a hero in the eyes of Amanda's parents. We're told they are going to publicly thank him.

EXCLUSIVE
Amanda Bynes Sexual Abuse
The brother and sister of Amanda Bynes have lashed out at her for attacking their dad and accusing him of physical and sexual abuse.

Jillian O'Keefe and Tommy Bynes tell TMZ through their lawyer, Tamar Arminak, "We are disturbed beyond words that Amanda would come up with such a fabrication as a way to avoid getting much needed help or treatment."

Amanda went on the warpath against her dad Friday after she learned her parents were coming to NYC to get her into a mental health facility, tweeting her dad had sexually and physically abused her ... something her dad vehemently denies.

Jillian and Tommy are right behind their father, calling their parents "the most wonderful parents who have ever lived."  

They add, "We are pained by [Amanda's] behavior but we absolutely give our full unconditional love and support to our wonderful parents."

Amanda Bynes
is fleeing New York City after learning her parents were planning to go to NYC to get her in a mental health facility ... TMZ has learned.

We're told Bynes first went to LaGuardia to get out of town but was ordered out of the Airport after screaming at a ticket agent.  She was agitated that a flight wasn't immediately leaving.  She then jumped in a car to make her way to JFK.

Our sources say ... Amanda's parents have been trying to reason with their daughter to get help for her condition, but Amanda has refused.  We're told Amanda's parents had already made plans to put her in a specific facility and had reserved a room, provided they could get their daughter on board.

Amanda is now on the warpath against her dad, saying on Twitter, "He called me ugly as a child."  She goes on to make an unsubstantiated sexual misconduct accusation.

She also says, "My dad was verbally and physically abuse (sic) to me as a child."

So far ... Amanda's parents can't find her.

Sarah Palin

Daughter Slut Shamed

During Drunken Family Brawl

10/9/2014 10:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE
1009-palin-family-facebook-02
Sarah Palin's family threw down in a massive drunken brawl as violent as any wrestling cage match -- with ripped shirts, bloodied faces, and her daughter Bristol getting dragged around a lawn by her legs.

The brawl went down last month near Anchorage, Alaska ... when the Palin clan -- Todd and his kids Willow, Track, and Bristol -- went to a friend's house party. According to the police report ... obtained by TMZ ... the violence erupted when Bristol went after a woman who had allegedly shoved her younger sister Willow.

Bristol told police the homeowner, Korey Klingenmeyer, shoved her to the ground, dragged her around, and started calling her a slut and a c**t.

Korey and several other witnesses at the party saw it differently ... telling cops Bristol punched him in the face -- he says he let her hit him 5-6 times before grabbing her fist and pushing back ... sending her reeling to the ground.

That scrap then sparked the all-out brawl -- witnesses say Track and 3-4 other people came running to defend Bristol ... and all hell broke loose ... with the Palins, including dad Todd, taking on all comers.

Willow says several people at the party we're chanting, "F**k the Palins!"

One witness says Todd got jumped by 4 people, and Track jumped in to help his father. He emerged from the scrum with a torn shirt and bloody mouth. Bristol says she was uninjured, though one cop described her as having "dirt on her knees."

Worth nothing ... cops described almost everyone at the party as being "intoxicated" ... including the Palins.

As for Sarah ... the report says she was sitting in a limo outside the party. She's not mentioned at all in the fight -- but it sounds like she tried to calm things down after the fact. The homeowner, Korey, did not want to press charges. In fact, prosecutors declined to file charges against any of the 20-plus involved in the melee.

Not surprisingly, Korey told cops the Palins lost the fight. We've reached out to the Palins ... so far no response.

My Babies Have Exquisite Kardashian Style

Retired "Girls Gone Wild" owner Joe Francis and his girlfriend just gave birth to twin Mexican girls -- well, technically, since she gave birth in Mexico -- and the newborn babes already have a fairy godmother -- Kris Jenner.

Joe's partner, Abbey, delivered two healthy girls -- Alexandria Claire and Athena Olivia -- Tuesday at a hospital in Puerto Vallarta ... and since they were born in Mexico, they're automatically given Mexican citizenship.

Sources close to the family tell us ... the babies are already being showered with gifts ... including pink Hermes blankets and Hermes clothing courtesy of Kris Jenner and the Kardashians.

The couple -- who live in Punta Mita -- conceived the girls through in vitro fertilization --  which can allow parents to choose the sex and other characteristics of their child. Francis said they chose IVF to make sure their babies were healthy and free of genetic illnesses.

¡Felicidades!
