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 including her response, "Offer rescinded.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!

Vicki Gunvalson Tamra's Husband Should Come Out IF He's Gay, But I'm Not Saying He Is

9/26/2017 12:56 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

'Real Housewives' star Vicki Gunvalson isn't doing a damn thing to shut down the rumor that's become a big thing on the show ... that Tamra Judge's husband, Eddie, might be gay.

The "OG from the OC" caught some heat this season when Tamra found out Vicki and other cast members were insinuating Eddie had made out with a man years ago. Vicki told us Tamra's got no one to blame but herself for this coming up on the show.

As for her real feelings about Eddie and the rumors -- Vicki had a very interesting/telling answer.

Corinne & DeMario We're Not Dating!! Disney Pics are a Fairy Tale

9/26/2017 12:50 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson looked like they were living happily ever after at Disneyland, but the pics don't tell the REAL story ... not to DeMario, anyway.

Sources close to DeMario tell TMZ ... he and Corinne are NOT dating or even hooking up, despite the cozy Disney shots of the ex-"Bachelor in Paradise" stars holding hands and getting touchy-feely on rides.

We're told the photos snapped a brief moment where DeMario and Corinne just happened to touch hands for a split second, but it definitely wasn't any kind of romantic hand-holding as implied in the photos.

Our sources say even DeMario's fake chomping at her arm was just playful banter between friends. Of course, it's no small feat for them to reach friendship level ... considering she all but insinuated he had sexually assaulted her.

We're told DeMario doesn't want this getting twisted -- he's single ... straight-up.

Ron White Sticks to Claim He Has No Wife ... No Prenup = No Marriage

9/26/2017 12:02 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ron White's sticking to his story -- he and Margo Rey were never married ... and now he says he's got the unsigned prenup to prove it.

According to new docs ... Ron made it very clear to Margo he would not marry her unless the couple had a signed premarital agreement, and they never got to that point due to her "demands for more money." He also claims she knew their "mock wedding ceremony" in October 2013 didn't count as the real thing.

TMZ broke the story ... Rey claims the comedian left her high and dry and wants more than $81k a month in spousal support. Margo's story is the 2 had a common law marriage in Texas and lived together as husband and wife in California too.

Ron denies the common law marriage, and says Margo has absolutely no legal proof she was ever his wife.
