Rihanna's antics at Tuesday night's Drake/Lil Wayne concert left little doubt ... she and Drake are banging again ... and she really, really wants people to know.
RiRi was front and center during the show and made quite a spectacle while Drake was on stage. You'd have to be blind to not spot her jamming in the crowd next to a few of Wayne's family members. Hasn't she ever heard of keeping things on the DL?
The concert wasn't the end of their night ... with sources telling us Drake and RiRi showed up to after parties at 1Oak and The Attic following the show. The flammable duo were both at a NYC nightclub Monday as well.
Justin and Selena, Chris and Karrueche ... guess reconciling is the new black.

Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart were back together Monday ... and when she spotted the photog she ducked for cover -- which totally means they're banging!
We think it's JLo's car ... it's definitely not his, although he's driving.
JLo and Casper broke up in June after dating 2 1/2 years. There were reports Smart cheated on JLo with a transsexual, but he denied it and threatened to sue.
As we reported ... the breakup was amicable and they parted as friends. Now it appears there may be benefits to the friendship.

Chris Brown says he's back with Karrueche because she finally realized he did NOT have sex on a St. Tropez yacht.
The on-again-off-again couple is now on again ... and Chris says it's because Karrueche now realizes he was telling her the truth when he said he was not having sex with anyone else.
Sources close to Karrueche tell us ... he was frantically texting and calling her -- more than 20 attempts a day -- to acquit himself, but she ignored him.
We're told Saturday ... Karrueche showed up at Chris' celebrity flag football game to talk it out ... which they did, and she believes him.
As for the whole yacht thing ... there definitely was smoke ... he was on the vessel cavorting with several women, including one of Karrueche's close friends.
Chris did cop to something ... he promised Karrueche he would slow down the partying and treat her better.
at Work ... Again

Katharine McPhee can't keep her hands off her co-workers ... but it's not a director this time ... it's her new show's leading man.
McPhee was on set Thursday getting handsy with Elyes Gabel, her co-star in the upcoming CBS series, "Scorpion." Unlike her last on-set romance ... Gabel's not married and she's getting divorced.
You'll remember ... photos surfaced of McPhee locking lips with "Smash" director Michael Morris in October 2013. McPhee was married to Nick Cokas (though she claims they were separated) and Morris was married to actress Mary McCormack (they're still together).
Her next project will be interesting ... what the hell will she do if she co-stars with Neil Patrick Harris?
Kendra and Hank
Reality Show Drama BS?
8/16/2014 1:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Something's fishy with Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett ... in the wake of the rumored marriage problems ... we got them on vacation together and it doesn't appear to be for show.
They were eating at a cozy beachside restaurant in Costa Rica Friday ... and the person who snapped the pic says there was no evidence of animosity ... quite the opposite.
The photog tells us they happily ate their meal with the fam without a single reality show camera in sight. Translation: They weren't putting up a front.
It doesn't track with the new trailer for their show ... where Kendra claims she flushed her wedding ring down the toilet after Hank reportedly had an affair with a transexual or two.
So, we gotta ask ...
Beyonce and Jay Z

Barry White would be proud ... Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez can't get enough of their love -- TMZ has learned they're back on for the umpteenth time.
Sources close to Jelena tell TMZ ... the two are trying to work things out. We're told they even went to church together Wednesday night, and they're "trying to be better people."
Not coincidentally, Bieber posted a Bible verse on Instagram the next day that read, "After you have suffered a little while, God will restore, confirm, strengthen and establish you."
They were also spotted at the movies earlier this week and Justin posted (and quickly deleted) a photo that appeared to show Selena kissing his cheek.
Yes ... we're getting ready for a "Justin and Selena Break Up" story. Again.
Threatens to Sue Waitress
Over Inadvertent Dine and Dash
8/14/2014 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kendall Jenner claims she's been defamed by a waitress who said the 18-year-old threw money in her face ... and she's threatening to sue.
TMZ has obtained a letter from Kendall's lawyer, admitting Jenner was indeed at Mercer Kitchen last week and that she accidentally skipped out on the bill.
But legal pitbull Marty Singer says the rest of the waitress' story is a pack of lies. The waitress tweeted she chased Kendall down the street to get the money and Jenner threw it in her face.
Singer says in the letter ... what actually happened was that the waitress did come up to her outside but Jenner was "extremely apologetic" and gladly paid what she owed -- $33, plus a $7 tip ... which she "politely handed" to her.
Singer says, "Although you are working as a waitress at Mercer Kitchen, I understand you are also a struggling actress," adding, "You no doubt concocted a fictionalized account of your encounter with my client in order to create publicity for yourself."

My Hubby's Mistress is Stalking Me!
8/13/2014 1:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Ramona Singer -- who stars in "Real Housewives of New York City" -- has gone to the NYPD ... claiming her estranged husband's mistress has been stalking her ... TMZ has learned.
Law enforcement sources tell us ... Ramona called 911 Wednesday afternoon, claiming the woman had followed her to a restaurant.
Ramona revealed last week she was leaving hubby Mario Singer, although she didn't say why. Other members of the cast dimed Mario to the media ... at least they alleged he was cheating.
But now we know ... Singer herself believes Mario was cheating, and for some reason she believes the mistress is obsessed with her.
Cops went to the restaurant but the woman in question was eating lunch with a man and had no connection to either Ramona or Mario.

George Clooney and fiancée Amal Alamuddin were snuggling and kissing at dinner in Lake Como, Italy last week -- and some people think she was hiding something under the table ... as in a baby!
The inevitable prego rumors were sparked by another photo of Amal getting on a boat ... where there appears to be a bump. Could just be the wind though.
Then again, a baby might explain why Clooney -- the bachelor-for-life poster boy -- is suddenly walking down the aisle again.
Just sayin' ...
To Brutality in L.A. Bar
8/11/2014 12:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Fugitive from justice Columbus Short lied when he claimed the guy he knocked out in an L.A. bar had it coming because he slapped his wife ... fact is, Columbus confessed to the guy IN WRITING.
You'll recall ... Columbus was arrested in March after sucker punching a guy during an engagement party at a West L.A. sports bar. The guy ended up in the hospital with a concussion and broken nose.
Columbus spoke out last month ... claiming he punched the guy in defense of his wife, because the man was taunting the "Scandal" star's wife, slapping her in the face with $20 bills.
But we've obtained a text message Columbus sent to the guy he hit ... sent the very same night of the incident. Columbus wrote, "I know im texting and incriminating myself but I have to own what I did wrong in that situation."
Columbus goes on, "Im so sorry and completely disappointed in myself," adding, "Whether I go to jail or not that will be the worst punishment of all. Losing you guys."
Columbus is a wanted man after an L.A. judge issued an arrest warrant for failing to appear in his domestic violence criminal case last week. He left for Barbados.
