Big Sean & Ariana Grande Split

Sorry Biebs ...

Nothin' To Do With You

4/20/2015 1:12 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

Big Sean Ariana Grande Break UpJustin Bieber is no homewrecker ... at least in this case ... because TMZ has learned that Big Sean and Ariana Grande's split has nothing to do with his mid-concert groping.

Sean and Ariana are history after 8-months of banging, and sources close to the couple say it had nothing to do with Sean's real/fake Twitter outburst after Biebs laid hands on his woman during her show a few weeks back.

We're told the breakup was mutual because they're both constantly touring and just think it's better this way -- but they're staying tight as friends. 

Now Biebs can REALLY make a move ... Kendall Jenner probably won't mind.

Drake

Seems to Confirm Nicki/Meek Engagement

4/20/2015 6:49 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Drake all but confirmed Nicki Minaj is going to marry Meek Mill ... and he did it onstage with Nicki and a VERY big ring.

Drake was performing at Coachella when Nicki jumped onstage where he began heaping praise on her, then congratulated her. He wasn't specific about her achievement, but when the 2 hugged, the ring on her finger is unmistakable.

0416-nicki-ring-instagram-01Nicki posted a pic of the ring on her finger last week, but didn't really say anything about it. Meek posted, "I wish every night could feel like last night."

Easy to read between the lines.

Kylie Jenner

Girls Want Her Fat Lips!!!

4/20/2015 4:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kylie Jenner pretty clearly has a fan base that wants her lips, whether they're real or not.

Truth be told, our office is divided. The guys think these girls in the video are mocking Kylie by putting their lips inside a bottle to swell them up, but the women in the office say the girls are trying to be just like the youngest Jenner. Since the men here have never been teenage girls, the women win.

The hashtag, #kyliejennerchallenge, is blowing up.

BTW Kylie has insisted in the past, "These plastic surgery rumors hurt my feelings to be honest and are kinda insulting ... Just in case anyone forgot... I'm 16."

Kim Richards

Off the Wagon or Stone Cold Sober

Someone's a Liar

4/20/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

 Kim Richards DrinkingKim Richards was either a hopeless, pill-popping alcoholic the entire last season of "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" or she was sober and doing better than ever ... depending on who you talk to on the cast and production crew.

Several sources involved in the production of the show tell TMZ ... Kim's protestations last season that she was sober were laughable.

We're told veteran cast members Kyle Richards, Lisa Vanderpump and Yolanda Foster learned to just look the other way to avoid confrontation, it was only new cast members Lisa Rinna and Eileen Davidson who dared to confront Kim.

The sources say Kim would never drink where anyone could see her ... she'd appear sober but then disappear in the restroom and emerge ... well, not sober.

But other sources connected to the show say Kim did better controlling her addiction last season than she has in years.  

The most interesting cast member when it comes to Kim is Brandi Glanville. Sources in both camps say Brandi sides with them. If true, Brandi is playing both sides, which would be shocking, right?

Kim's sobriety became an issue during the dog biting incident. We're told Kim's camp sent a dog trainer to Kim's house to assess the situation, but the trainer found that Kim was such a mess, he had to help put her to bed.

Kim was arrested Thursday for public drunkeness and battery on a cop in Beverly Hills.

Selena Gomez

I'm Making Hits, Not Hit-Boy

In Mexico

4/18/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0417-SUB-selena-gomez-mexico-INSTAGRAM-01

Selena Gomez's trip south of the border is strictly professional, meaning she's not banging Hit-Boy.

Selena caused quite the stir in that ugly bikini earlier this week, but less prominent was the famed producer who was by her side. Stories started surfacing that they were dating.

Our Selena sources say not true. They're recording an album at the home of Joe Francis, Casa Aramara, in Punta Mita.

Turns out Kanye and Kim went to Joe's house last year and he build a sick recording studio on the compound. Hit-Boy -- who's produced hits for Kanye, Jay Z, Chris Brown, Snoop, Bieber and many others -- heard the studio was gold and that's why he chose it for Selena.

There are extra perks ... an awesome beach, and even a sea lion that swims in Joe's pool.

BTW -- black bathing suit MUCH hotter.

Dennis Quaid

'Funny Or Die' Owns It ...

We're Behind the Freak Out

4/15/2015 11:01 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

Dennis Quaid really did freak out on a movie set -- but it was the set of a "Funny or Die" video.

The site finally copped to shooting the scene with Dennis ... by posting the full video showing Dennis losing it on the director and the crew of a fictional set. But now you can see the full skit which includes some hysterical sight gags.

The video leaked earlier this week ... just showing Dennis losing his marbles. He kept tight-lipped about it when we asked him about it on Tuesday -- but his wry smile made us think something was up.

So ... not a real freak out, just real funny.

Patrick Schwarzenegger

Solo at Coachella

Miley Miles Away

4/11/2015 7:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0411-patrick-schwarzenegger-miley-instagram-01Patrick Schwarzenegger was all smiles at Coachella Friday ... Miley Cyrus was kinda smiling too, but it seems they were in a different zip code.

Patrick was front and center at the H&M party, mugging with a random dude, while Miley was in a studio with producer Mike Will.

0411-sub-miley-cyrus-mike-will-instagram-01Seems a little strange.  Coachella is the place we expected to see the 2 of them together.  

We've gotten them together 2 times since Patrick's epic Spring break trip to Cabo and they seemed tight enough.

Kids.

Justin Bieber & Kendall Jenner

Gettin' VERY 'Friendly'

Or Totally Bangin'

4/10/2015 8:09 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0410-justin-bieber-kendall-jenner-instagramJustin Bieber and Kendall Jenner play by different rules than most of us -- or they're just straight up banging ... because 'just friends' don't take pics like this.

Biebs certainly loves his puppies because he spent a romantic day out near Coachella with three of his current favorites ... he posted the disgustingly cute photos with Kendall and Esther.

Check out JB's hand -- friends don't go for the waist touch and neck sniff just for fun. In other words ... if this isn't for a magazine cover -- pretty sure they're screwing.

Or maybe just screwing with us.

'Bachelorette' Alum Josh Murray

Chill out BachNation ...

Ashley I. Is Still a Virgin!

4/10/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0409-ashley-josh-instagramOne photo had 'Bachelor' fans losing it ... thinking Josh Murray was rebounding from Andi Dorfman by banging famed virgin Ashley Iaconetti -- but we've learned her chastity is fully intact.

Quick backstory ... Josh was engaged to ex 'Bachelorette' Andi, but they split up in January. Ashley was a cast-off from the most recent 'Bachelor' -- best known for flaunting her virginity.

Fast-forward to Monday night ... Josh meets Ashley at a NYC sports bar -- along with a bevy of hot chicks -- then posts an Instagram with her cozying up to him. He was instantly flooded by fans sounding off -- some happy about the hook-up, but others taking it as a diss to Andi.  

Ashley tells TMZ everyone can chill because they're not dating. She says ... yes, Josh reached out to her ... and yes, she thought he was cool, but she viewed it as a group date (she brought 2 GFs for backup). So, hardly romantic and definitely bang-free. 

Andi can take a little solace, since our sources say she thought the pic was a "low blow" from Josh.

As for whether Josh and Ashley have a 2nd date? Based on the proximity of her boobs to his back ... we'd guess there's a good chance.

David Miscavige

P.I.s Say They Were Hired

To 'Dig Up Dirt' on David's Dad

4/10/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

David Miscavige and his Church of Scientology are on a mission -- to "dig up dirt" on people who talk crap on them -- so claims the private investigator who says he was hired to keep David's dad in line. The audio is pretty amazing.

TMZ obtained police audio in which P.I. Daniel Powell told Wisconsin detectives he and his dad were paid $10k a week from the Church to shadow Ronald Miscavige ... to follow him, see who he's talking to, monitor his emails and most of all make sure he's not bad-mouthing David.

Daniel says Ronald used to be the Musical Director of the Church, until David decided his stuff was outdated and put him out to pasture. Daniel says Ronald started going after David, and that's when they were hired to unrelentingly control the elder Miscavige.

Daniel says David paid Ronald off on numerous occasions to keep him quiet.

And Daniel says David has reason to fear Ronald ... because dad has the goods and David is "a terrible person."

The lawyer for David Miscavige says his client did not hire Daniel Powell and has never even met him.

David Miscavige

P.I. Says David Blocked Medical Help

If Dad Dies, He Dies

4/9/2015 4:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Chilling audio ... the father of Scientology leader David Miscavige appeared to be having a heart attack, and his son ordered his people to stand clear and just let him die ... so claims the P.I. who was tailing David's dad.

P.I. Daniel Powell recounted during a police interview in 2013 how he and his dad were following Ronald Miscavige, who left the church, when Ronald suddenly slumped over and appeared to be having a coronary.

Powell says his dad, Dwayne, called the people who hired him on behalf of Scientology and informed them of the situation. He says a short time later David called Dwayne and instructed him not to render aid ... if he died, he died.

We're told it ended up just being a case of the cramps.

David Miscavige's lawyer denies his client hired the P.I.s or even knew them.  

Daniel Powell and his dad say they were paid $10k a week to follow Ronald for a year-and-a-half.  

Bella Thorne

Hey, Miley Fans

Patrick and I Are Just Friends, I Swear!!!

4/9/2015 11:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Bella Thorne Patrick Schwarzenegger DatingBella Thorne knows what happens when you mess with Miley Cyrus and her man ... so she's sending a preemptive message to Miley's fans.

Bella and Patrick Schwarzenegger were photographed leaving the Mud Hen Tavern in Los Angeles Wednesday night ... no hand holding or kissing ... but lately when Patrick gets photographed with another girl, Miley fans go berzerk

Bella is no fool ... she posted a photo of her and Patrick during dinner and captioned it, "With my homie @patrickschwarzenegger if you aren't already following him you should :)) disclaimer *** we are just friends :)"

Hopefully that's enough to keep the wolves at bay.

Big Sean

I Never Threatened Justin Bieber

... That Tweet Is a Fake!

4/9/2015 9:37 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0409-bieber-grande-sean-tmz-01The Big Sean/Justin Bieber feud is over before it even started ... or more accurately ... it never existed in the first place.  

A rep for Big Sean tells TMZ the tweet going around in which Sean threatened Bieber for laying hands on Ariana Grande during a concert ... is a fake.

We're told Justin and Sean are good friends  ... and that he and Ariana are just fine. 

Another tweet of Sean's -- "so many times in my life I wish I could of been at 2 places at once" -- also sounded like it was about Bieber ... but we're told it had nothing to do with JB, and Sean just misses friends and family while on the road.
