Scott Disick

Kourtney 'Fuming' and 'Worried' ...

He's Hooking Up and Off the Wagon

7/4/2015 1:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0703-scott_disick_launch_3_akm-gsiKourtney Kardashian is telling friends she has no doubt ... Scott Disick is hooking up with the chick he was all handsy with in Monte Carlo, but she's also deeply worried he's lapsed and fallen back into substance abuse. 

Our sources say Kourtney believes the woman, celebrity stylist Chloe Bartoli, is an opportunist and taking advantage of Scott, whom Kourtney believes is getting wasted again. We're told she knows Chloe and, as we reported, Scott knows her as well ... they even dated.

Our sources say Kourtney's sisters have the same view as her and on Friday they all went from simmer to boil, targeting their anger at both Scott and Chloe. 

Kourtney hasn't made any decisions about the fate of her relationship with Scott, but we're told it's already in a "fragile state." 

Miley Cyrus

In Lust with Stella

7/4/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0702_Miley-and-Stella-Maxwell-hugging_wmMiley Cyrus and Victoria's Secret model Stella Maxwell are not pranking anyone ... they cannot keep their hands and lips off each other ... so say the people who hang with them.

Their make out session after a video shoot this week had a whiff of doubt that it was real, as opposed to something promotional for the new song. But people who were at the shoot tell us Miley and Stella were inseparable during the many hours it took to get the shots.  

They constantly kissed, caressed, held hands, and Stella got very comfortable on Miley's lap.

People who have been around them recently say the relationship is highly charged, not so much romantic as full-on lust. 

Short story ... it seems real.

Bobbi Kristina

Someone's Shopping Death Bed Photo

7/3/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0702-bobbi-kristina-getty-02It's pretty disgusting but also not unexpected ... someone is shopping a pic of Bobbi Kristina laying at death's door in a hospice. 

The photo was shopped to us ... we passed. It was taken earlier this week at the facility outside of Atlanta. A woman is hovering over Bobbi Kristina in the photo ... we're told it's a family member. 

As for who shot the photo ... we're told it's "an extended family member."

The pic is being shopped to multiple magazines and websites, and we're told there's interest.

'The Bachelorette' Producers

We Love Sex on the Show!!!

7/3/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0702-kaitlyn-nick-bachelorette-getty-01Kaitlyn Bristowe and Nick Viall apparently were the wet dreams of "The Bachelorette" producers ... they were drooling to make a story line out of the sexual tryst, but the other guys wouldn't bite. 

Sources connected with the show tell TMZ, some of the contestants definitely knew Kaitlyn and Nick had sex. We're told producers did everything they could to goose those contestants into talking about it and making it a big deal.

Now here's the rub. The contestants wouldn't bite. We're told they all knew producers wanted to make it a story line and a source of conflict, but they felt if they did that it would help Nick and therefore hurt them.

The show has still not squarely addressed the liaison. 

Miley Cyrus

New Girl/Girl Relationship

Passion or PR Stunt?

7/2/2015 11:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

miley_cyrus_stella_maxwell_kissing_photos__launchMiley Cyrus' make out session with Victoria's Secret model Stella Maxwell was intense, but there's some evidence this might have been brilliant guerrilla marketing.

The kissing pics were snapped Tuesday night during a break from the set of a music video for Mike Will's song, "Drinks On Us." It appears they're both in the video, so staging the scene would be brilliant marketing. The video should be big -- it features Mike Will, Future, French Montana and Rae Sremmurd.

As for the "it could be real" side ... according to our sources, Miley and Stella have been hanging since Miley and Patrick Schwarzenegger called it quits back in April. The two have been pictured together quite often, and some of the photos seem very couple-y.

Stella even hit up a Miley concert recently and posted a video of herself singing along to one of Miley's songs ... and the lyrics were of the XXX variety.

0702-subasset-miley-cyrus-instagram-02Stella also has a history with male celebs, but she's also been linked to a Victoria Secret model. 

So we gotta ask ...

Ben Affleck

Even Jen Doesn't Believe

He Messed with JLo

7/2/2015 10:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0702-ben-affleck-jen-lopez-jen-garner-tmz-01Jennifer Garner has issues with Ben Affleck for sure, but they have nothing to do with Ben's former fiancee, Jennifer Lopez.

Sources directly connected with the couple tell us, neither Ben nor Jen have even raised JLo's name in their decision to divorce. More specifically, we're told Garner has no issue on that front ... it's not about JLo.

The stories about Ben and JLo started circulating after Ben walked over to Jen during the Oscars, said something, and walked away as she brushed his arm. 

That said, on the other hand, our sources will not say Ben and Jen never argued about other people during their marriage.

Cody Simpson

About Selena Gomez ...

Sometimes a Lick Is Just a Lick

7/2/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Cody Simpson is no "f**k boy" for Selena Gomez -- that’s his side of the story, anyway.

Our photog caught the Australian pop star and a buddy early Wednesday morn on the Sunset Strip, and asked about Selena's IG of them all enjoying cones and cream together.

Check it out ... Cody tried to shut down any rebound rumors by claiming he and his friend are "no f**k boys." Google it if you don't know it, but basically ... he ain't trying to bang her. Or so he says.  

His ex, Gigi Hadid, and Joe Jonas also came up ... and we're now 100% positive a Simpson-Jonas collabo will not be happening any time soon. Mostly though, this 2 AM-ish video is proof Cody and co. had a strong night at the bars!

Ahh, the single life.

Miley Cyrus

Makin' Out

With Hot New Chick

7/1/2015 1:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0701_miley_cyrus_make_out_launch2Miley Cyrus has bagged herself a Victoria's Secret model ... and during a break from filming a new music video Tuesday night in Los Angeles ... they locked up in a heavy make-out session.

The girl's Stella Maxwell, and she and Miley have been hanging out quite a bit lately. Miley posted a photo with Stella a few weeks back and captioned it,emoji_miley

The photo and video were shot Tuesday night in a parking lot in Hollywood. They both saw the cameras and clearly kissed to make a point, and it did not seem like a typical Miley gag.

We had to blur the video because Miley's hand goes south with Stella's help.

Miley has said recently she's bisexual.

Jennifer Garner

'Fed Up' With Ben's Gambling, Drinking

7/1/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0630_BEN_AFFLECK_JENNIFER_GARNER_TMZ-4

Jennifer Garner reached her breaking point with Ben Affleck's drinking and gambling and that's why she pulled the plug on their marriage ... sources connected with the couple tell TMZ.

Our sources (not surprisingly) have two views of what happened ... some align with him and some with her.

The Jen sources say Ben's drinking and gambling have escalated over the last few years to the point "she couldn't take it anymore." Ben's sources also say he likes to drink and loves to gamble ... in fact, Ben has rhapsodized about gambling in interviews.

Sources say "partying" had nothing to do with their problems. Ben did not go out and did not womanize ... Jen complained he just drank and gambled too much.

As for our Ben sources, they say it's really just about 2 people who want to live their lives differently. His people say they've been in therapy for more than 2 years -- he even mentioned his marital problems during his 2013 Oscar acceptance speech. They add the couple has been separated for 10 months, so there was no recent "breaking point."

0701-ben-affleck-playing-blackjack-tmz-7Ben's gambling is well-documented. TMZ got photos of the actor last September during a high-stakes blackjack session in Detroit. And TMZ broke the story, Ben was banned from the Hard Rock in Vegas in late April 2014 for counting cards.

The other thing our Ben sources say ... he wins big in gambling.

UFC's Paige VanZant

Basically Confirms She's Dating UFC Star

6/30/2015 4:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Paige VanZant doesn't seem to be afraid of anything ... except when it comes to confirming that she's OFFICIALLY dating a fellow UFC fighter  -- though it's pretty obvious it's on and crackin'. 

VanZant was out in NYC when we just had to ask her about UFC rising star Cody Garbrandt -- who she's been hanging out with A LOT recently.

In fact, they recently had a movie date night together ... and she made him her "Man Crush Monday" just two weeks ago. 

0630-paige-vanzant-ufc-cody-no-love-INSTAGRAM-01Check out the clip -- Paige gets all adorably flustered when we mention Cody's name ... and plays coy when we ask if the two are a real deal item.

We would have pressed her more ... but we didn't want to get our asses kicked.

Sean Penn

Charlize Who?

Gives Minka Kelly Birthday Dinner of a Lifetime

6/30/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0629-sean-penn-minka-tmz-instagram
Sean Penn and Charlize Theron called it quits just 2 weeks ago, and he's already doing his laundry with another hot chick.

These pics were taken last Tuesday at French Laundry, the uber-fancy/delicious/exclusive restaurant in the Napa Valley. Sean was celebrating Minka Kelly's 35th birthday, along with 3 other people.

They were by no means hush hush ... people at other tables heard Sean tell the other 3 he and Minka met at a Haiti charity event.

They had a feast to end all, with a chicken with the feet still attached, truffle mac and cheese and a birthday cake. The people at Sean's table, along with others in the restaurant, serenaded Minka to "Happy Birthday."

Sean picked up the tab ... and it was pricey.

Minka has not mentioned Sean, but after the dinner she Instagrammed, "Birthday festivities off to a pretty magical start."

Michael Sam & Vito

All Signs Point to Breakup

6/30/2015 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0629_michael_sam_Vito-Cammisano_TMZHold off on the wedding gifts ... 'cause it seems Michael Sam and his fiance Vito Cammisano are DUNZO ... just 6 months after the couple got engaged. 

Sam's people and Vito's camp are being unusually tight lipped about the couple's official status -- but the signs are all over social media. Here are the clues ... 

Clue #1 -- Michael has REMOVED several affectionate photos of himself and Vito from Twitter and Instagram recently, including their famous engagement pic taken at St. Peter's Basilica.   

0629_MICHAEL_SAM_ENGAGMENT_removed

Clue #2 -- The couple hasn't been spotted together in almost 2 months ... even when Sam left the Montreal Alouettes under mysterious circumstances earlier this month.  Bizarre for an engaged couple, right? Also, no tweets of concern or support from Vito. 

Clue #3 -- Vito, an aspiring video blogger, just published his very first YouTube video this week ... and he's not wearing his engagement ring. Again, unusual for Vito, who had been sporting the ring EVERYWHERE ... from the Vegas pool scene to hikes at L.A.'s famous Runyun Canyon. 

0629_vito-cammisano_split_missing_ring

Sam and Vito were college sweethearts -- they met in 2009 at the University of Missouri but didn't start dating until 2011. They broke up during Sam's senior year in college, but got back together. 

We reached out to both camps multiple times -- but no one's saying a word ... which is super weird considering how public their relationship has been in the past.

Jahlil Okafor

Viral Sex Story Is B.S.

'Considering Legal Action'

6/29/2015 11:41 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0629-jahlil-okafor-GETTY-01NBA rookie Jahlil Okafor claims he's been targeted by an Internet "troll" -- who is spreading disgusting lies about a sexual encounter that NEVER happened ... and now he's taking action to shut her down. 

Social media exploded over the past 24 hours after someone claiming to be a woman named "Chanel" went to Twitter and posted a story about hooking up with Okafor ... complete with embarrassing details involving his junk and bedroom performance. 

But Okafor's camp tells TMZ Sports ... the story is "absolutely false" ... adding, Jahlil has never met the person and has no idea who she is. 

We're told Team Okafor has already contacted Twitter to get "Chanel" to take down the tweets. Okafor's team was told the tweets fall under Twitter's abuse policy ... especially posts where she threatens to leak nude pics ... and if she doesn't delete them, her account will be suspended. 

Okafor's camp says they have already kicked the matter over to their legal counsel and are considering their legal options moving forward.
