Ariana Grande

Only One Direction for Niall ...

The Friend Zone!!

6/2/2015 1:57 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0602-ariana-grande-niall-horan-INSTAGRAM-01Ariana Grande and Niall Horan hung out way past their bedtime Monday night -- but don't get your panties in a bunch just yet 1Ders.

Our Ariana sources say the One Direction singer was invited to her concert in London Monday night. After the performance, she and Niall hung out backstage, but it was anything but intimate. Ariana's manager Scooter Braun and both of their entourages were also there.

After the backstage pow-wow, the group headed off to Cirque Le Soir nightclub -- and stayed out till 3:30 AM. But when the fun was over ... we're told they went their separate ways.

Too bad it wasn't a real hook-up since the normally rabid 1D fans have actually been pretty positive about Ariana. Must be the wild video of their after-party that won 'em over.

Jessica Alba

Not Banking On Her Bod ...

But It's Still Banging!

6/2/2015 2:58 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0602_jessica_alba_sexy_magazine_spread_launch So what's hotter about Jessica Alba -- her size 0 figure (educated guess) or her big, fat, enormous bank account? Trick question ... it's a tie, and she's flaunting both this month.

The actress slash co-founder of The Honest Company is on the covers of Shape Magazine and Forbes at the same time. One focuses on her working hardbody, and the other on her body of hard work. 

Jess' company is now valued at a billion dollars, Forbes says her personal fortune is at $200 mil -- and our eyes say her body is still a 10 ... at 34.

Numbers are awesome.


Jenni Rivera's Kids

Kids Moving On …

Time to Cash In On Mom’s Estate

EXCLUSIVE

0601_jenny_rivera_house_launchJenni Rivera's family is ready to unload one of her prized possessions -- the massive estate she designed 3 years before her death ... and they're hoping to get $4.5 mil for it.

Jenni’s dream home sits on 4 acres of hilltop land overlooking Encino, CA. The estate has 7 bedrooms and 10 baths including marble floors and a double wrought iron staircase.

The legendary Mexican singer originally bought the property in 2009 for $3.3 mil, but sunk another $500k worth of personal upgrades into the place. Right now Jenni’s kids are living there, but we're told they're ready to bolt if the right buyer comes along. 

Check out the gallery -- if you're into private hiking trails, and pools with a waterfalls ... this is your kinda pad. Of course, you also need a few mil in the bank.

Enrique Iglesias

I Need a Hand ...

From a Surgeon!

breaking news

0601-enrique-iglesias-hand-injury-AP-01That drone accident jacked up Enrique Iglesias' hand so badly he has to get reconstructive surgery.

Enrique's fingers got sliced during Saturday night's concert in Tijuana when he grabbed a drone flying above the stage. Even though the singer was able to finish the show -- bloody and bandaged ... the damage was severe.

His rep told the AP ... Enrique was having surgery in L.A. on Monday to repair his right hand.

His world tour will resume July 3rd in Mexico City, where we're guessing drones will be strictly prohibido.

Justin Bieber & Selena Gomez

Together Again for God ...

But Not for Each Other

5/28/2015 1:07 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

Slow down, Jelena fans -- yes, Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez hung out Wednesday night ... but they are not dating again. Not yet anyway.

The reunion of everyone's favorite on-again/off-again set the Internet on fire, but here's what really went down.

Pastor Rich Wilkerson Jr. -- who counts Bieber and the Kardashians among his flock -- posted a series of videos from a gathering Wednesday night in L.A. ... and both Bieber and Gomez were there.

According to our sources, the exes were cordial, but that's it. In fact, Bieber brought rumored girlfriend Hailey Baldwin with him -- another sign there's no reunion on the horizon.

We're told this isn't the first time Bieber and Gomez have been together lately -- they've both been to a few of Pastor Rich's gatherings in recent weeks.

So, no romantic sparks for now. Give it time, they'll be back together -- and broken up again -- eventually.

Charlie Sheen

Sooo Dripping Wet

... Over Justin Bieber!!??

5/28/2015 7:01 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Get Charlie Sheen a towel ... a BIG one ... or maybe just a life preserver -- 'cause the guy was absolutely drowning in his own sweat at 1:30 AM in Hollywood.

This video is insane, and literally soaking wet. We saw Charlie slipping out of Sycamore Studios early Thursday morning ... where a bunch of Justin Bieber fans also happened to be hanging out waiting for Justin to exit.

It's unclear what the hell Charlie was doing at the studio at that time -- we're pretty sure he's not recording an album ... but who knows with him.

Just watch ... screaming Bieber fans, a seriously drenched warlock ... oh, and a one-finger salute to Charlie's fave TMZer.

Jennifer Lopez

Don't Clown Me in the Airport!

Gets Confetti Bombed

5/27/2015 8:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jennifer Lopez flaunted her abs and nerves of steel at LAX when some idiot -- actually a clown -- attacked her ... with a handful of confetti.  

J.Lo was doing her thing in the airport on Tuesday -- strolling and looking damn good -- when the guy in full clown face doused her. It would be totally normal for Lopez to jump back, or even flinch ... but you gotta see her reaction.   

The offending clown is no random idiot -- his name is Richie the Barber, and you might recall ... he pulled this same stunt last year on Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian

They pressed charges against Richie. It's unclear if J.Lo will have a sense of humor, or do the same. 

Aaron Hernandez

I Didn't Shoot Murder Witness in the Face ...

To Intimidate Him

5/21/2015 12:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

Aaron Hernandez pled not guilty to witness intimidation -- denying that he shot his friend in the face to keep him from testifying in a double murder investigation. 

According to the district attorney's office, Hernandez intimidated his friend Alexander Bradley -- who allegedly witnessed the tight-end shoot and kill Safiro Furtado and Daniel de Abreu in 2012 over a spilled drink.

Hernandez has pled not guilty to the murder charges.

The Suffolk County DA believes Hernandez was paranoid about cops watching him after the murders ... and shot Bradley while driving home from a club in Florida.

Bradley survived, but lost an eye in the shooting.

FYI ... looks like Hernandez got some new prison ink too... a star on his neck included with the word "lifetime."

Interesting choice -- given his life sentence for the murder of Odin Lloyd.

Report: Aaron Hernandez

Busted for Being Lookout

in Prison Fight

5/20/2015 6:09 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0417-aaron-hernandez-getty-01More trouble for convicted murderer Aaron Hernandez -- the ex-NFL star was reportedly busted by prison officials this week for being a lookout (poorly, it appears) in a violent prison fight. 

The fight was gang-related, says CNN ... which reports Hernandez agreed to help out an inmate who went into another prisoner's cell and attacked him. 

Shocking, considering Hernandez is currently locked up at Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center -- one of the most high-tech maximum security prisons in the country. 

Then again, he's already got a life sentence ... so what does he care?! 

It's not the first time Hernandez has been involved in a fight behind bars -- TMZ Sports broke the story Hernandez fought an inmate at Bristol County Jail back in 2014. 

He was charged for that attack ... and for threatening a jail guard. 

George Zimmerman

Cops: Shooter Said ...

'I Hope I Got Him This Time'

5/15/2015 5:31 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0515_george_zimmerman_getty2The guy who shot at George Zimmerman during a road rage incident this week ... allegedly taunted Zimmerman moments before opening fire, yelling ... "You remember me, you fat motherf****r?"

Matthew Apperson was arrested by Lake Mary PD on Friday and charged with 3 crimes --aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, aggravated battery, and firing a deadly missile. 

According to police a detective on the crime scene overheard Apperson say, "I hope I got him this time." As we've reported, Apperson and Zimmerman had another road rage incident last year -- and cops say it appears Apperson is now obsessed with Zimmerman.

Zimmerman told police Apperson pulled up behind him and started yelling the "fat" comment, and also ... "You owe me your life. The only reason I didn't press charges on you is because I wanted to kill you myself." 

Moments later Apperson pulled up next to Zimmerman's truck and fired one shot into his vehicle.

Apperson tells a slightly different story ... claiming Zimmerman pulled out a gun and said, "I'm going to kill you" -- prompting Apperson to shoot. Apperson's maintained he fired in self defense.

Aaron Hernandez

I Didn't Take Pleasure

In Odin Lloyd's Death

5/15/2015 10:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0515-aaron-hernandez-GETTY-01Aaron Hernandez claims he should NOT have been convicted of 1st degree murder in the death of Odin Lloyd -- claiming the killing was not "cruel" enough to warrant such a harsh charge. 

Hernandez's lawyers filed new court docs challenging the verdict in the Lloyd case ... in which they spell out why Aaron should have, at most, been convicted of 2ND degree murder instead. 

Here's why ... 

Team Hernandez says 1st degree murder requires either premeditation or extreme cruelty. Aaron's lawyers say the ex-NFL star was NOT convicted on premeditation so they're attacking the "cruelty" angle. 

In the docs, AH's lawyers state ... since Lloyd was shot 6 times and died "rapidly," there's no evidence of suffering. Furthermore, they say no witnesses heard Lloyd yell or scream. 

There's more ... AH's lawyers say to prove cruelty, you must also show the killer "took pleasure" or was indifferent about killing. Team Hernandez says there was no evidence to show Hernandez "took pleasure in any suffering experienced by Lloyd." 

Long story short ... AH's team believes Lloyd's murder was a run of the mill gun death -- nothing more or less cruel than any other. 

Now, it's up to the judge who will decide whether or not to overturn the verdict.

Cristiano Ronaldo's 4-year-old son is already taking after his father ... working on his abs during a father/son training session ... and it's friggin' adorable. 

The kid -- Cristiano Ronaldo Jr. -- started off by holding his dad's feet while the soccer star ripped off a set of crunches. 

Then the tables turned ... with dad pushing his kid to knock out a solid 10 sit-ups ... which he does without a problem! 

All the while dad showed off his famous ripped, hairless legs for the cameras ... of course. 

Aaron Hernandez Fiancee

Perjury Charge Dropped

After Helping Convict NFL Star

5/15/2015 6:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0515-shayanna-jenkins-01

The judge in the Aaron Hernandez murder case ... the first one ... has officially thrown out the perjury charge against Aaron's fiancee Shayanna Jenkins after she provided testimony that led to the conviction of the ex-NFL star. 

Jenkins had struck a deal with prosecutors before she got on the stand -- she would talk and in exchange they would toss out a previous perjury charge.

The perjury charge stemmed from comments Jenkins made to the grand jury in 2013 regarding a gun in her home ... that may have been the weapon used to murder Odin Lloyd. If convicted, she faced up to 20 years behind bars. 

Prosecutors say Jenkins' testimony at the trial -- that she helped Aaron dispose of a mystery box after Odin's death -- helped them win the case. 

The operating theory is that the box contained the murder weapon. 

Now, Hernandez is doing life in prison ... and Shayanna is off the hook.
