Katharine McPhee's estranged husband gave her a hand Tuesday ... a very gentle hand.
It's a stark contrast to her split with Nick Cokas, which allegedly came after Katharine was photographed sucking face with her "Smash" director Michael Morris. Katharine claimed in the documents she was already separated from Nick, but he says they were still together.
But things change ... or do they? A source close to Katharine insists Katharine and Nick had a friendly business breakfast in West Hollywood. He's still involved in her music stuff.
The Mayweather vs. Pacquiao fight was unanimous in everyone's eyes, but Manny's aunt and cousins are steadfast ... the fight was fixed.
Aunt Lilia and crew were leaving the Mandalay Bay on Sunday when our photog asked whether Manny was cheated, remember the boxer felt he had won the fight. His family went 5 steps further and claimed the whole thing was rigged and people got paid off.
They weren't done... they also trash talked Floyd.
Bad news for Suge Knight ... Floyd Mayweather will NOT be posting his $10 million bail if he wins his fight this weekend ... this according to a key member of Floyd's Money Team.
TMZ Sports just got off the phone with one of Floyd's most trusted members of his TMT crew -- who tells us Suge's lawyer was just plain wrong when he told media outlets there was a plan in place for Floyd to fork over the money.
We're told Floyd and Suge were close in the past -- but they haven't been in contact in several years.
Suge is currently locked up in L.A. on murder charges -- and his attorney Matthew Fletcher reportedly said Knight was counting on Floyd to cover his bail.
We reached out to Fletcher for comment -- who says he only made the comments because that's what he was told by Suge's family.
The wife of Randy Meisner -- original Eagles bassist -- wants to "buy him a bottle of vodka and hopes he drinks himself to death" ... so claims an alleged friend who's seeking a conservatorship, but Randy thinks he's really after cash.
James Newton claims in new legal docs his good friend Randy is in desperate shape and his wife, Lana is not doing anything to help him. He says Randy, an alcoholic who has been in and out of rehab and diagnosed with brain damage -- often goes unbathed for a month, thanks to his wife.
Newton says the wife keeps Randy in a "state of near-constant inebriation" because she says "he is easier to control when he's drunk."
And get this. Newton says Lana is frittering away much of his royalties and other income -- estimated between $300k and $500k a year -- on things like remodeling, vacations and cosmetic surgery.
But Randy and Lana tell TMZ ... Newton's full of it. Randy says he's "doing great" ... no longer drinks hard alcohol, and his wife treats him well. He says Newton is not a close friend, and believes the guy's most likely in cahoots with people trying to discredit Lana, and jack their money.
Newton wants a professional conservator to step in to take care of Randy, who was the lead singer on "Take It to the Limit" and famously walked out on the group after fighting Glenn Frey backstage during a 1977 concert.
Blac Chyna says Tyga didn't just text her out of the blue this week trying to get back with her ... she says he's been making that play for 7 months.
Sources connected with Blac Chyna tell TMZ ... the text -- in which he said "I want to be with u" -- was the last in a flurry of texts, conversations and private face-to-face meetings in which he made his play to reconcile their relationship.
Sources close to Chyna says she never believed he was physically with Kylie Jenner -- partly because she's 17, and partly because they were all neighbors and close to the Kardashian family. She says she believed Tyga when he called out the media for suggesting he was dating Kylie, but doesn't believe it anymore.
Blac Chyna posted Tyga's texts out of anger, but she claims she wants nothing to do with him anymore. It's complicated by the fact that they have a kid together.
When it comes to Tyga's women ... there's only one on his arm -- in permanent ink -- and her name is Kylie Jenner ... NOT Blac Chyna.
A photo surfaced today of Tyga with a fan, but more importantly ... he's flaunting fresh ink -- his 17-year-old GF's name is now on his inner right elbow. Sources close to the rapper tell TMZ ... he got the tat yesterday to prove to Kylie he is fully committed to her and no one else.
It's no coincidence he got the ink the day after his baby mama, Blac Chyna put him on Insta-blast -- posting his texts to her saying, "I want to be with u" ... and have a relationship.
If the texts were real ... it looks like Tyga's had a quick change of heart.
Ariana Grande lashed out at Big Sean almost immediately after their breakup by staging Justin Bieber's come-from-behind stage embrace ... so claim sources close to the couple.
Sources closely connected with them tell TMZ ... Sean claims it was him who broke off the relationship because she was "immature."
Sources say the downfall of their relationship started in February, when he made the most important appearance of his career at the House of Blues in West Hollywood. Everyone showed -- Kanye, Bieber, JLo, Chris Brown, Jay Z, A$AP Rocky, Tyga, Kylie and Kendall -- everyone EXCEPT ARIANA. We're told she needed to get ready for the Grammy's the next day, which he found extremely selfish.
Sean also traveled to see her "10 times more" than she went to see him. He claimed once she demanded that he blow tens of thousands of dollars to take a private jet to see her. Sean, who grew up poor, felt she was a spendthrift ... a sign of immaturity.
But the crowning blow was just after the breakup. They were still talking and the door was slightly open for a reconciliation, when Bieber jumped onstage in L.A. and grabbed Ariana from behind. Even though Ariana pushed Biebs away, Sean believes it was all calculated -- NOT by Bieber but Ariana -- to hurt him.
Matt Bellamy finally put the moves on his Kate Hudson doppelganger, because he and the gorgeous "Blurred Lines" music video star Elle Evans are now definitely banging.
Sources close to the new couple tell us Bellamy and Evans officially became an item back in March and were practically inseparable at Coachella, doing what all new couples do ... making out and taking sappy photo booth pics.
We're told they were also handsy last week at the Burberry Fashion Show in L.A. -- but she hasn't met his son yet. As we previously reported, they first met back in Februarythrough mutual friends ... and things heated up shortly after that.
We ran into Elle Wednesday at The Ivy ... and she was super tight-lipped re: Matt -- although she kinda slipped up as she said goodbye.
