Breaking News

Ryan Phillippe is strongly denying he laid a hand on his ex-girlfriend.

His camp tells TMZ ... "As a staunch advocate for the health, well-being and equality of women, Ryan is completely devastated that these false allegations have been made and circulated. Domestic violence is an incredibly serious issue and fabricated and proven false claims should not be used to unjustly slander the falsely accused."

As we reported, Elsie Hewitt got a protective order against Ryan and also sued him for more than $1 million ... claiming he attacked her in a drunken rage and threw her down a flight of stairs.

Ryan's camp says, "The claims are false."

Gisele Bundchen What, Me Worry about Tom and Ivanka?

9/19/2017 7:14 AM PDT

Gisele Bündchen was flyin' solo Monday, arriving at Boston Logan Airport shortly after former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci strongly insinuated Tom Brady didn't attend the Super Bowl celebration at the White House because Gisele had a jealousy thing over Ivanka Trump.

Gisele had been in Brazil to attend the Rock in Rio concert.

Scaramucci co-hosted "TMZ Live" Monday and suggested Tom and Ivanka had dated back in the day, and Gisele didn't want the 2 to interact. Sources connected to Ivanka told us, Tom and Gisele were friends but had not dated. BTW, in 2004 Trump mused it would be cool if Ivanka and Tom hooked up.

Anthony Scaramucci: Gisele Blocked Tom from White House ... Jealousy Over Ivanka?

9/18/2017 1:37 PM PDT

Anthony Scaramucci believes it was Gisele who stopped Tom Brady from joining the Patriots on their Super Bowl trip to Donald Trump's White House ... strongly insinuating the supermodel didn't want Tom around Ivanka Trump.

The Mooch -- Trump's former White House communications director -- guest hosted "TMZ Live" Monday -- when we asked straight-up about the alleged rift between the POTUS and the GOAT.

A.S. says he didn't have direct knowledge of the situation -- but strongly suggested Gisele shut Brady down ... saying, "I think she's possessive of him and probably didn't want him there."

Mooch suggests Gisele may have been jealous of Ivanka Trump -- saying he thinks Brady and Ivanka may have dated at one point in the past.

In fact, back in 2004 ... Donald praised Tom as a great guy who would make a "great combination" with Ivanka.

Despite the Moochsinuation, a source connected to the Trump family tells us, "While they have known each other for years, this is not true."

For the record, Tom claimed the reason he missed the White House visit was to spend time with his ailing mother.

Kevin Hart I'm Smiling Through Extortion Plot ... It's My Job!

9/18/2017 12:19 PM PDT

Kevin Hart isn't missing a beat when it comes to making money ... extortion plot, be damned.

In fact, Kevin was all smiles Monday morning on the set of "Night School," which is currently shooting in Clayton, Georgia. His face didn't show any tension about the fact someone tried to get up to 8 figures from him to keep a video of him allegedly cheating under wraps.

As TMZ first reported, authorities are on the case and closing in on a suspect.

Kevin seems confident. Or he's just a really good actor.

Eric Benet I Got No Beef With Jay-Z Over '4:44' Name Drop

9/13/2017 7:01 AM PDT

Eric Benet is AWESOME ... and this clip proves it.

It's the first time we've seen him since Jay-Z dropped his name in "Kill Jay-Z," so obviously we wanted to know how it sat with him. Jay made Eric the poster child for cheating men who screw up their relationship with women -- "You almost went Eric Benet/Let the baddest girl in the world get away."

Eric laughed it off ... clearly amused by reports that he banged down Jay's door to express his dismay.

He's so cool about it ... and sees a silver lining.

And his parting shot at Ted Cruz is epic!

Mel B Badgers Woman to Testify Stephen Raped Her

9/12/2017 2:15 PM PDT

Mel B's being accused of harassing another potential witness in her divorce war with Stephen Belafonte ... and this time the woman claims Mel wants her to lie about rape.

TMZ has confirmed ... a  22-year-old Swedish student allegedly had threesomes with Mel B and Belafonte and made sex tapes -- just like with their former nanny, Lorraine Gilles.

The student claims she got a surprise call from Mel and, according to the Daily Mail, Mel told her ... "Your sex tape is already out there and your name is already out there and you have to be in court in about 2 or 3 weeks."

Mel allegedly told her it's the law for her to appear in court, and insinuated she wanted the student to testify that Belafonte raped her in the sex tape. She claims Mel said ... "I know about the sex act and that you were crying and saying 'no' and I want you to be in court for that."

The Swedish student denied Belafonte raped her. Our sources say Mel then became angry and tried to badger her into saying he did.

The Daily Mail report comes on the heels of news broken by TMZ that Mel B's under criminal investigation for witness tampering ... for allegedly threatening rapper Siya if she testified against her.

Kendall Jenner, Blake Griffin She's On a Runway And So is He

9/12/2017 7:27 AM PDT

Kendall Jenner and Blake Griffin just took a major step in their dating life -- 'cause nothing says "we're together" like dinner and a movie ... and a 2,475 mile trip.

The rumored couple was spotted grabbing a bite Monday night in NYC at Carbone, and then catching the new horror flick "It" afterward.

Speaking of flying, Blake clearly jetted off to New York to be with Kendall ... who's walking runways for Fashion Week. They'd been seen hanging in L.A. (with pals) prior to this.

If they keep this up ... they'll float too.

Whoopi Goldberg Who Cares Jamie's Dating Katie!??!!

9/7/2017 7:37 AM PDT

Whoopi Goldberg has better things to think about than Jamie Foxx hooking up with Katie Holmes.

We got Whoopi out in the rain Wednesday at NYC's Lincoln Center, and she was characteristically hysterical. When our photog asked about Jamie and Katie's official coming out, she fired back at his premise ... that it had any impact on her life.

More importantly ... Whoopi was festooned in duds that are hard to describe, but pretty damn awesome!

Lil Wayne Screw Doctor's Orders He's Goin' Back to Work!!!

9/7/2017 12:50 AM PDT

Lil Wayne's manager, Cortez Bryant, says the only thing Lil Wayne is addicted to is work, and brushed off an early retirement, despite Sunday's hospitalization for seizures.

We got Cortez at LAX Wednesday and he told us Weezy has no plans to slow down. Doctors have sidelined him for 2 weeks, but Cortez says Wayne will be back.

As for what caused the recent episode, Cortez didn't blame it on lean, but did offer an explanation.

Wayne's been spotted double-cupping at shows throughout the year, but seemed fine the night before he was taken to the hospital.

Jamie Foxx Katie and Me? AYYYYYY!!

9/6/2017 1:16 PM PDT

Jamie Foxx knows silence is golden when it comes to talking about Katie Holmes ... but he still wants everyone to know they're all good as a couple.

Jamie was in Malibu Wednesday morning when a photog asked him all about Katie and their very first PDA on the beach. TMZ posted the first pics ... showing them strolling on Monday -- and, as we reported ... the relationship has been the worst-kept secret for years.

So, why go public now and what does her ex and his pal, Tom Cruise, think?

Jamie kept his response brief ... and mostly nonverbal.

John Legend Fat Trump Backers ARE Connected to My Music, But ...

9/6/2017 7:12 AM PDT

John Legend is changing -- or at least elaborating -- his story about that casting call for fat Donald Trump supporters, and he's definitely connected to it ... sorta.

We got John Tuesday at LAX, the day after he shot a music video featuring Black Lives Matter protesters -- which seemed to be related to the story TMZ broke about a casting call for "preferably out of shape" Trump supporters. The listing said it was for a John Legend production.

While John initially said he had nothing to do with that casting ... he's telling a different story here. Turns out the not-so-thin Trump supporters -- shooting on Friday -- WILL be connected to one of his songs. Hmm ...

Still a bit mysterious, but it's clear from his Monday shoot ... John's embracing the whole political thing. He even has a politician's way with words at times.

'Bachelorette' Star Peter Kraus Blink If You're the Next 'Bachelor'

9/2/2017 12:30 AM PDT

Rachel Lindsay's runner-up on "The Bachelorette" won't say for sure if he's next to hand out roses for love -- but he's giving us strong signals he might be.

We got Peter Kraus -- a fan fave who wouldn't take a knee for Rachel this season -- and asked if rumors that he's the next 'Bachelor' carry any weight.

He doesn't necessarily confirm it, but he doesn't straight-up deny either, and even dishes on which of his buds would make a good one (even though it's probably irrelevant).

You be the judge, though ... he didn't have to blink. Seems like he could fulfill that high school wish of his after all.
