Matt Damon & George Clooney Weinstein Was an A**hole! But We Never Witnessed Him Preying on Women

10/23/2017 7:32 AM PDT

Harvey Weinstein was proudly a bully and a womanizer -- but kept his sexual preying on women secret from his inner circle ... according to Matt Damon and George Clooney.

Matt spoke out about the Weinstein scandal Monday on 'GMA,' and said he'd never seen Harvey assault anyone, but was aware of the Gwyneth Paltrow incident. Still, he says he only saw Weinstein treat Gwyneth "incredibly respectfully."

George said it was beyond infuriating that Weinstein was silencing women, but thinks the scandal will finally shut down the infamous casting couch ... IF Hollywood reacts the right way.

Weinstein ended a one-week rehab treatment program. As for second chances -- Clooney and Damon don't sound too open to the idea.

David Foster to Katharine McPhee Cash Me Outside!!!

10/23/2017 7:06 AM PDT

When Katharine McPhee likes what she sees, she grabs ahold -- and what's not to like about David Foster's ass at an ATM?

The actress/singer and the legendary producer/composer were out for what looks like a date night Sunday in Brentwood. Although they've repeatedly denied dating and claimed to just be friends, all the signs are there.

- Walking arm-in-arm? Check.
- Butt grab during a cash withdrawl? Check.
- Kiss on the cheek during a cash withdrawl? Soooo check.

Just a few months ago 68-year-old Foster was all over town with Christie Brinkley.

As they say in David's biz ... the hits keep coming.

'Veep' Star Diedrich Bader Oswald Acted Alone

10/23/2017 6:55 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Veep" star Diedrich Bader thinks the thousands of soon-to-be-released secret documents relating to the Kennedy assassination will not change the government's conclusion that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone.

Diedrich -- who played Rex Kwan Do in "Napoleon Dynamite" -- was strolling in Larchmont Village Sunday when he took a minute to scoff at Trump's proclamation that he will not stand in the way of the documents being released this week. Intelligence officials have been lobbying for the Prez to withhold the release.

He says Oswald was an excellent shot and he's been to the School Book Depository Bldg. and says Oswald was more than capable of doing the deed. Fact is ... Oswald was considered a good shot but not a great shot, and getting 3 shots off in less than 6 seconds was a challenge.

The documents should be interesting ... there's clearly a reason the CIA and other government agencies wanted these documents under wraps. Kennedy was a foe of the CIA after it led him astray in the Bay of Pigs invasion, and there's a school of thought Oswald worked for the agency and it was behind the assassination.

We will see.

Joanna Krupa I Knew About Weinstein a Decade Ago

10/19/2017 6:55 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Joanna Krupa says she was warned more than a decade ago about Harvey Weinstein getting sexually aggressive with actresses, and she made a conscious decision to stay away.

We got Joanna Thursday in WeHo and asked if she had any experiences with the fallen mogul. Joanna came to Hollywood as a model with designs on stardom, but the grapevine was loud and clear ... at least one kingmaker was treacherous.

Joanna says the rumor mill was going full tilt, which again raises the issue ... how can it be Hollywood had no idea?

Harvey Weinstein Could Be Silenced and Booted From TWC Board Meeting

10/16/2017 3:53 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Harvey Weinstein could be cut off at the knees at Tuesday's Board of Directors meeting, because there are signs the Board might fire him ... which we're told would guarantee litigation.

Harvey, who is still a member of the Board despite being fired from The Weinstein Co., plans to participate in Tuesday's meeting via speakerphone -- he's currently in Arizona for rehab.

As we reported, Weinstein and his lawyer, Patty Glaser, plan to challenge his firing, claiming there was no basis to remove him from the company based on his Oct. 2015 employment contract.

A source from TWC tells TMZ, "Harvey's role in the meeting will be very limited." We know that's not Weinstein's intention -- he and Glaser plan to fight the firing tooth and nail.

Our Harvey Weinstein sources smell a rat, and believe the Board may start the meeting with a motion to kick him off the Board. If that happens, they can disconnect the speakerphone and kick Glaser out of the boardroom. 

If that happens, there would be no debate over Weinstein's firing, but our sources say it would guarantee a lawsuit. Based on what we know from the contract, Weinstein might have to go to arbitration, but his side believes if the Board fights dirty they'd want this to end up in court.

Kathy Griffin I'm Blacklisted!!! Here's My Proof ...

10/16/2017 1:55 PM PDT

Kathy Griffin claims Hollywood's giving her the shaft, and an email exchange about a speaking engagement she was initially offered proves it.

Kathy says The Hollywood Reporter invited her to speak at its annual Women in Entertainment Power 100 event this year. She posted the email they sent on Sept. 26 offering her the gig -- but just last week she was told it's a no-go. Kathy posted that email as well ... including her response, "Offer rescinded. Good times."

The comedian says she's still reeling from her severed Trump head photo shoot. She says, "I just want to make you laugh, even though I don't have one single day of paid work ahead of me in the United States for the rest of my life."

It's unclear if the change is Trump-related -- we've reached out to The Hollywood Reporter.

Worth noting though -- Kathy was notified last Thursday she'd no longer be speaking. That was just 4 days after she entered a fundraising gig while wearing a Trump mask and waving both middle fingers.

Lana Del Rey Don't Believe Your Ears ... My Sexy Song's Not About Weinstein

10/15/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Lana Del Rey's 2012 track about preferring older men is NOT about Harvey Weinstein ... despite what people's ears are leading them to believe.

Lana's song, "Cola," features the lyrics ... "I got a taste for men who are older / It's always been, so it's no surprise," and is followed by the line, "Harvey's in the sky with diamonds and he's making me crazy" -- or so people think.

Even the top search results for the lyrics back up what people think, that the song references Harvey.  

Sources close to Del Rey tell us the song is not linked to Weinstein or any Harvey for that matter. They say the actual lyrics go this way ... "Ah he's in the sky with diamonds." We've checked the album's digital booklet ... and the lyrics reference "Ah he's," not "Harvey." 

Listen for yourself ... sure sounds like there's a "v" sound.

Nelly Ex-GF Ashanti Saying 'Less' About His Rape Arrest

10/10/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ashanti's reaction to her ex-boyfriend Nelly's arrest was short, to the point ... and more than a little self-serving.

We got the singer at LAX where our photog made a valiant effort to get Ashanti to talk about Nelly's alleged rape case. We broke the story ... Nelly's accuser says the attack happened early Saturday morning on his tour bus.

He's denied the allegation -- but remember ... Ashanti and Nelly famously had a bad breakup. We wondered if she'd have his back. We'll say this, she's nowhere near as supportive as Akon. Instead, her thing is just "say less." 

She'll explain.

Chris Brown's Baby Mama Accused of Threatening Witness in Royalty Custody Battle

10/4/2017 9:41 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Nia Guzman is on a mission to intimidate an ex-friend who says she's a witness in the custody battle with Chris Brown ... at least according to the woman.

The ex-friend, Skakur Sozahdah, is requesting a restraining order against Brown's baby mama -- and in the docs she says Nia's been parking in front of her house and "sprinkling a weird substance" in her yard. Shakur also claims Nia's been texting her like crazy and bad-mouthing her and other family members.

As for why? According to the docs, Nia's been begging Shakur for a face-to-face meeting. Shakur claims she's a witness in Nia's custody battle over 3-year-old Royalty ... and thinks Nia is using scare tactics so she won't testify against her.

Nia denies the allegations, and according to a rep ... she hasn't seen Shakur since early 2017. Still, the judge granted the restraining order, forcing Nia to stay 50 yards away from Shakur.

Shakur is the same woman Nia accused of threatening her, and in fact got a restraining order against her on Tuesday.

Tim Tebow & Savannah Chrisley We're Not Dating ... Just Friends!

9/29/2017 7:41 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

There is NO reality romance for Tim Tebow -- but he does have a very attractive new female friend. 

Ever since "Chrisley Knows Best" star Savannah Chrisley posted a photo with Tebow at a Sam Hunt concert earlier this week, the Internet went crazy with dating rumors ... especially with Savannah's penchant for dating pro athletes

We happened to see Tim and Savannah at LAX (different flights) -- and both of 'em shut down the dating talk pretty quickly. 

Savannah says Tebow's a great guy, a nice guy ... and her mom already gave him the stamp of dating approval. 

So, maybe something in the future? 

What a great night last night!! @timtebow so sweet! #15ina30tour

Tom Cruise Yeah, That Ass is Real on Set ... Says 'Mummy' Co-Star

9/27/2017 4:37 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Tom Cruise is a real-life action hero on the set of his movies -- but his ass is even realer ... according to one of his co-stars. 

We got Annabelle Wallis -- who starred alongside Tom in "The Mummy" this summer -- and she confirmed 2 stories about him all in a matter of seconds.

She says it's true that Tom saved her life while filming 'Mummy' when something got wrapped around her neck during a stunt. More recently, though, folks speculated he used a prosthetic booty in his 2009 Nazi movie, "Valkyrie" ... and you can kinda see why.

Tom already debunked the "fake butt" rumors this week, and now Annabelle is backing that up ... no buns intended.

Khloe Kardashian That 'Dad + Mom' Pic with Tristan Thompson ... NOT a Pregnancy Announcement!!!

9/27/2017 12:30 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Khloe Kardashian's birthday pics with Tristan Thompson -- which she captioned "Dad + Mom" -- were NOT some sort of secret pregnancy announcement ... TMZ has learned.

Our Kardashian sources tell us ... her social media post on June 25 is purely a coincidence -- she had no idea she was pregnant at the time. We're told Khloe's just shy of 3 months pregnant now ... and the surprise 33rd bday party Tristan threw her was 3 months ago.

We're also told "Dad" and "Mom" are just lovey dovey nicknames the couple have for each other ... though they now have a deeper meaning.

Want more proof Khloe didn't know she and her bf were going to have a baby? Here's what she tweeted the day after the party ...

Scott Disick & Sofia Richie On the Same Page When It Comes to Paps

9/27/2017 7:20 AM PDT

Scott Disick and Sofia Richie have something in common with Kylie Jenner and Khloe Kardashian -- silence.

We got the new couple Tuesday at The Commons at Calabasas and asked them about the huge baby news TMZ broke -- about Khloe and Tristan Thompson, and  Kylie and Travis Scott. No, we don't THINK Scott and Sofia are in the same way ... but their response to Kardashian baby questions is very similar to their answers about their relationship.

Our guy even pivoted -- digging about Scott and Sofia's recent celebration down in Miami.

What IS very clear from this clip -- they're in agreement on how to handle paps, and Scott's got a sick ride!
