Mariah Carey had a chance to spin her divorce with Nick Cannon, but she said it's simply "too hot" to talk.
Mariah was walking around NYC Monday with her nephew. As the video starts, you can see Mariah putting on a large hat she had just purchased.
But when the photog asked her to comment on her split from Nick, she pled the fifth ... citing the weather. FYI, it was only in the mid 80s in New York Monday.
As TMZ first reported, the Nick and Mariah split is a done deal. It's just a matter of when they make it official.
Katie Holmes and Suri
Moving, Moving Back, Back to Cali
8/22/2014 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Katie Holmes has left NYC and moved to Black Beverly ... aka Calabasas, CA.
Our real estate sources tell us ... Katie just plunked down $3,795,000 on a 6,000 square foot home in The Oaks ... the fancy area where Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian live. Other residents include Katherine Jackson and her brood, Toni Braxton, Romeo, Mitch Richmond. Tyga recently moved out.
It was a super secret deal ... with a confidentiality agreement that socked anyone who violated it with a $1 million penalty.
Katie and Suri are already in the home. We're told Katie made the move for 2 reasons -- she wants back in Hollywood for her career, and she thinks Calabasas is a better place than NYC to raise Suri.
The cul-de-sac where she lives is populated by lots of kids around her 8-year-old daughter's age.
Weeks before escrow closed, Suri and her bodyguard went to a San Fernando Valley rescue shelter and picked out a chihuahua she named Maple, but they didn't pick it up because they were going to be gone until last week, when they moved in. We don't know if they picked up the pooch.

Chan's son was caught in a huge drug crackdown last week -- with cops saying they found about 3.5 ounces of the green stuff in Jaycee's Beijing home.
Now, his famous father has penned a bizarre letter to the public -- blasting his kid ... and essentially saying he FAILED as a father.
"When I first heard the news, I was absolutely enraged" ... Jackie wrote in a letter posted on his official website.
"As a public figure, I feel very ashamed; as his dad, I'm very sad and disappointed. But the person who feels heartbroken the most is his mom."
"I hope our younger generation will learn from Jaycee's mistake and stay far away from drug abuse."
"I would like to take this opportunity and say to Jaycee: you’ve done something wrong and you have to be responsible for the consequences. I’m your dad and I’ll always be with you. We will face the road ahead of us together."
"I should also take some of this responsibility because as his dad, I didn’t teach him well."
"Therefore, on behalf of Jaycee and myself, I extend our deepest apologies to everyone for the negative impact this has caused on society. Thank you."

Ask Me About Me ... Please
8/19/2014 6:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
10:27 A.M. PDT -- We're told Brody will attend the opening ... but will no longer give 1-on-1 interviews.
Brody Jenner needs to get a grip ... he's courting the media to interview him and only one thing is off limits ... the thing people care about.
Brody's promoting the opening of a Dave & Buster's in Hollywood ... and is courting the media for 1-on-1 interviews ... but we're told any talk about the Kardashians/Jenners is out of bounds.
Why he skipped Kim's wedding? ... Next question.
Why he hung Bruce out to dry on the PCH? ... Nice try.
His love/hate relationship with Kris? ... Uhhh, no.
Oh, you can ask him about the 7 "Keeping Up The Kardashians" episodes on which he appeared ... just avoid bringing up Kim, Khloe, Kourtney, Kylie, Kendall or Kris. You know, pretty much anybody else on the show whose name begins with "K."
Now the list of what's left to talk about that's interesting.
Won't Free Widow of Criminal Charges
8/18/2014 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Casey Kasem's widow is NOT off the hook just because she's thwarting the efforts of cops to get a full autopsy ... to determine if she committed elder abuse ... because we've learned cops are confident they have the goods to nail her.
We've confirmed Jean Kasem is moving Casey's body from Montreal to Oslo, Norway, where Casey's body will be buried.
TMZ broke the story ... the Santa Monica Police Dept. is investigating Jean ... because they say they have evidence she compromised his health by taking him on a wild, multi-state ride to evade the rest of her family ... causing him to get an infection that contributed to his death.
Law enforcement sources now tell TMZ ... although they'd like to have a full autopsy, detectives believe they have enough evidence to present the case to prosecutors. They've interviewed doctors and others who examined Casey during the car ride ... and cops say it's incriminating stuff.
We're told the case will be submitted to the L.A. County D.A. ... soon.
