Halsey Backs Her Ex ... G-Eazy & Demi Are Just Friends!!!

7/19/2018 2:49 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

G-Eazy has NOT jumped to dating Demi Lovato after his split from Halsey ... and that's coming straight from his ex, Halsey.

We got her Thursday at LAX, and had to ask her about the speculation G's hooking up with Demi. There were reports they hit up a Hollywood club last weekend. Even though that turned out to be false ... the rumor's taken off.

Halsey, who announced the breakup from G-Eazy earlier this month, says NO CHANCE. He denied the Demi buzz at the ESPYs, and his ex is fully backing him.

As for ever reuniting with G-Eazy -- Halsey has a strong take on that.

Ariana Grande 'God Is A Woman' Vid is No Rip-Off ... I Got Permission!!

7/19/2018 9:49 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ariana Grande's gotten a lot of heat for allegedly ripping off a scene in her new music video from a '90s ad campaign ... but we've learned she did it all by the books.

Ariana's "God is a Woman" dropped last week and was immediately attacked by critics who noticed similarities between the video and an ad by Jean Paul Gaultier from 1993.

Sources close to Ariana tell us the scene was absolutely inspired by JPS ... however, it wasn't art theft -- it was an homage to the designer. We're told Ariana's team reached out and obtained permission to use the concept -- and for what it's worth -- we've seen the proof.

"God is a Woman" is the latest single from Grande's album, "Sweetener," set to drop next month. 

As for the music video, it's doing just fine, with more than 30 million views already racked up.

Corinne Olympios Wake Up, 'Bachelor' Nation Colton's Definitely Not a Virgin!!

7/17/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Corinne Olympios isn't buying what Colton Underwood is selling on this season of "The Bachelorette" -- insisting the ex-football player's already swiped his V card. 

The villain from Nick Viall's 'Bachelor' season was in Venice on Monday when she weighed in on Colton confessing to Becca Kufrin that he's a virgin. He still got a rose, but Corinne thinks Becca got taken.

First off, she says Colton's too hot to still have unwrapped goodies. She also says his so-called confession is one guys use all the time for sympathy. That said, she thinks it's hurting him more than helping. He did get eliminated on this week's episode, so ... Corinne might've had a point.

As for whether the jock has what it takes to be the next 'Bachelor' ... Corinne scoffs and takes a shot at all of Becca's suitors this season. Bitter ... table for one?

G-Eazy Dodges Questions About Halsey Breakup

7/16/2018 7:02 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

G-Eazy is taking the silent route when it comes to his failed relationship with singer Halsey.

We got Gerald at LAX Sunday where he looked like he was in a chipper mood until our camera guy started asking about his ex.

The two broke up abruptly a couple of weeks ago after dating for almost a year. Halsey recently hinted he cheated on her over Twitter.

G-Eazy was reportedly spotted leaving Warwick in L.A. Saturday night with Demi Lovato -- but we've learned the two were not together.

Looks like he's not a kiss and tell guy.

Selena Gomez Back To Work ... With Rumored BF in Tow

7/13/2018 10:11 AM PDT

Selena Gomez is keeping herself busy -- on the heels of her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber's engagement announcement -- by throwing herself back into acting, and she's not doing it alone.

Gomez was seen Thursday on the set of the zombie-com "The Dead Don't Die." The film stars Bill Murray and Chloe Sevigny and is shooting in Fleischmanns, New York, almost 3 hours north of the Big Apple in the Catskill Mountains.

Also spotted on set was Gomez's rumored new boyfriend, Caleb Stevens. Stevens is the younger brother -- he's reportedly only 18 -- of one of Gomez's close friends.

There have been conflicting reports as to whether or not the two are an actual couple ... but, while on set, Caleb made a run for Cheetos and an iced coffee -- so if he's not a love interest -- he's at least scored a sick summer job as her assistant.

As for the big elephant in the room, Selena's still hasn't said anything about her ex's engagement.

LaVar Ball Lonzo's Injury News Didn't Come From Me ... 'I Don't Leak Nothing!!!'

7/6/2018 6:17 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

LaVar Ball says he had absolutely nothing to do with word of Lonzo's knee injury getting out, and neither did anyone in his camp family ... because the Balls don't roll like that.

We got LaVar at LAX Friday and asked about the recent report that the Lakers think someone on Zo's side leaked news of his torn meniscus and potential surgery to keep him from getting traded ... he calls BS.

"I don't leak nothing. I always say what's on my mind, so you don't never see me saying, 'I think I should say this now and let it leak.' I don't do that."

LaVar says he's never babied his son or even talked about him being hurt ... so the media should look for leakers elsewhere.

He also touches on Lonzo's relationship with his new teammates -- LeBron and Rondo -- but tells us he's been busy with his own business this summer ... so he doesn't have all the answers.

Of course, we already know how he feels about LeBron in L.A.

Roseanne I've Gotten TV Offers ... And There's One I Might Accept

7/3/2018 6:25 AM PDT

Roseanne Barr says things are not all bad for her after her racist tweet got her fired from her own show ... she says TV offers are coming in and there's one that has intrigued her.

Barr appeared again on Rabbi Shmuley's podcast and told him she may be down but not out. She makes it seem as if she's close to accepting one of the offers.

As for the show from which Roseanne was fired ... she says -- shockingly -- she didn't accept a penny when she signed the rights away to the show she created. She says, "I thought signing off of my own life's work and asking for nothing in return, I thought that was a penance."

TMZ broke the story ... ABC and show producers met almost immediately after firing Roseanne and canceling her show and eventually decided to bring the fam back, sans Roseanne.

XXXTentacion Murder Suspect Not Raped in Jail ... Despite Report

7/2/2018 10:41 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

XXXTentacion's murder suspect who is sitting in jail was reported to have been sexually assaulted in a Florida jail -- but, that's just not true ... according to Broward County Sheriff's Office.

Law enforcement officials at BSO tell us the story asserting Dedrick Williams was raped in Broward County Jail is flat-out false. 

The story -- citing someone who works in the Dade County Jail system -- claimed Williams had been showering recently and was ambushed "with an attempted rape." The report went on to claim that people affiliated with Kodak Black may have been involved.

The Broward County Sheriff's Office's Public Information Officer, Veda Coleman-Wright, says that story is "unfounded" and that the entire alleged incident did not happen. Period.

What is accurate is that police have ID'd a person of interest in XXX's murder case -- 22-year-old Robert Allen, who was seen at the motorcycle shop where X was gunned down.

Williams remains as the only murder suspect under arrest for now -- but, cops are searching for at least 2 others

EXCLUSIVE

Donovan Mitchell tells TMZ Sports he "ain't worried" about losing Rookie of the Year to Ben Simmons -- and the reason he doesn't care? The fans love him anyway!!!

The Utah Jazz star got a hero's welcome before an appearance at the Adidas store in Santa Monica on Tuesday -- the dude is like a frickin' rock star!!!

On the way in, we talked to Mitchell about the heated rivalry with Simmons for ROTY -- and he told us, "The media chose who they wanted to chose. And it's whatever."

He added, "I'm excited to be here. I've got all this support right here!"

Mitchell's right -- the scene is pandemonium ... in a good way.

LaVar Ball If Lakers Trade Lonzo ... 'Worst Move They Ever Made'

6/22/2018 6:03 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

LaVar Ball has heard the trade rumors involving Lonzo Ball going to the Spurs ... and has a message for the Lakers: 

"If they wanna trade him, trade him. It'll be the worst move they ever made."

LaVar went off at his JBA season opener on Thursday afternoon -- when we asked about the rumblings that Magic Johnson could ship Lonzo to San Antonio to get Kawhi Leonard

"If they wanna trade him, trade him. If they don't wanna trade him, keep him. He's gonna do his thing. I'm not worried about no trades. 

LaVar says he's still 100% confident all 3 of his boys will eventually play on the same NBA team, despite the fact LiAngelo wasn't drafted on Thursday. 

"He'll come in the back door as a free agent," LaVar explained. 

"Somebody will take all 3 of my boys and whoever do, guess what -- championship."

Steve Nash It's Not Dwight Howard's Fault ... It's The NBA

6/21/2018 11:46 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Dwight Howard being traded around the NBA isn't because he's a crappy teammate ... so says ex-teammate Steve Nash, who tells TMZ Sports Howard's city jumping is just the way the league is now.

Dwight is on his way to Brooklyn (who reportedly will buy out his contract, so we don't know where he's going), his fourth team in four years -- a lot of stops for a future Hall of Famer.

There are some rumors that Howard might have worn out his welcome with teammates in Charlotte, something that's been said in some of his past stops as well.

Nash says that's not it at all ... telling our guy players moving around is just the way the association is now.

"That's the modern NBA. Guys change teams all the time, it's not uncommon."

True ... but still, four teams in four years and not knowing where he's headed now? Howard might want to get some Edible Arrangements for his new squad.

Paul George I'd Love To Play With LeBron ... & I LOVE Los Angeles

6/13/2018 8:18 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

It's time for TMZ SPORTS DECODES ... starring NBA superstar Paul George, who might've just given the basketball world a huge clue about his future and the future of Mr. LeBron James.

Or did he?

First a little context ... rumors in NBA circles say LeBron joining the Lakers depends on him luring another big name star to Hollywood, and most people think George -- an L.A. native -- is that star.

In order for that to happen, George would have to want to play with LeBron and, when we got him at the Fortnite Celebrity Pro-Am in L.A. and asked him ... he seemed like he was down.

"Yeah, I'm with LeBron every All-Star. Every one of my All-Stars I've been teamed with LeBron ... I like playing with him."

We continued decoding as we asked George if he even likes Los Angeles ... and once again, he gave us more positive feedback than an eastern Tinder swipe.

"I'm from L.A., I can say I love L.A. because I'm from L.A."

What do you get when you love both playing with LeBron and L.A.? Seems like Purple & Gold.

Consider this DECODED. You're welcome.

Pete Davidson Dropped Hints in 2017 Crushing Hard on Ariana Grande!!!

6/13/2018 12:50 AM PDT

Pete Davidson donned Ariana Grande's signature bunny mask during an 'SNL' sketch in late 2017 ... perhaps letting the world in on the secret he was already feeling the singer, even though he was in a different relationship at the time.

Pete rocked a suit and Ariana's mask for a masquerade ball sketch that aired in November. At the time, Pete was a year and a half into his relationship with Larry David's daughter, Cazzie.

He confirmed their split last month -- shortly after Ariana and Mac went public with their breakup -- and, in the short period of time since then, Ariana and Pete announced they were dating and got engaged.

It's still unclear when exactly Pete and Ariana started dating, but one thing's for sure ... they haven't been shy about flaunting their love since then ... and he wasn't shy with his dough when he popped the question.

As we first reported, PD dropped nearly $100k for Ariana's custom engagement ring.
