Serena Williams Back With Common? Exes Kicked It in Compton

11/14/2016 12:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

1114_common_serena_williams_tmzSerena Williams and Common raised eyebrows by spending a lil time together at a small private event Friday night ... sparking speculation they might be dating again.

An eyewitness tells us Serena and the rapper/actor were in a back room chatting before she spoke to the audience at the grand opening of the Yetunde Price Resource Center -- for people affected by violence.

We're told the exes were careful to avoid taking pics together, but individually each got a photo with Compton's mayor, Aja Brown. They left in separate cars after the event.

Venus Williams was also there -- the sisters launched the center because their older sister was shot and killed.

Serena split with Common in 2010 after at least a year-long relationship. A source close to them tells us they're still just friends. The witness insists they seemed like more than buddies.

Election Day 2016 Election Night of the Living Dead Voter Fraud Alive and Well

11/8/2016 10:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1108-dead-voters-getty-composite-02Donald Trump's gripe that the election is riddled with voter fraud might bear some truth in SoCal -- more than 1,100 dead people are still registered to vote ... according to a report.

KCBS-LA Investigative Reporter David Goldstein ran a story Monday night revealing 265 corpses voted in Ventura, San Bernardino, Orange, Riverside and L.A. counties over the last 8 years -- most recently, in June's primary.

According to the report, SoCal voting records also show more than 900 other dead people are still registered to vote this Election Day, but it appears no one's voted on their behalf.

L.A. County Registrar's Dean Logan insists no dead people have voted on his watch.

Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt Story They Settled Is BS ... Custody War Still On

11/7/2016 8:32 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1107-angelina-jolie-brad-pitt-tmzA story is circulating Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have settled their custody dispute ... total BS.

Multiple sources familiar with the situation are scoffing at the report that the divorcing couple struck a settlement giving Angelina primary physical custody while Brad got visitation.

TMZ broke the story ... Brad filed legal docs Friday sharply contesting Angelina's request for primary physical custody. Instead, Brad wants a judge to award joint physical and legal custody to both.

The report published by Associated Press cites an Angelina source who says the couple reached the mutual agreement which includes family therapy. In fact, the couple agreed to extend the temporary arrangement ONLY until the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services closes its investigation.

As TMZ and other outlets reported, Brad and Angelina agreed she would have physical custody during the DCFS investigation and Brad would have visitation monitored by a therapist. That agreement was extended last week, but it is NOT a settlement. That will be handled by the family court judge.

Again, Brad just filed docs Friday asking for joint custody, and the AP report says the couple reached a settlement last week, so the story makes no sense on its face.

EXCLUSIVE

1107-floyd-mayweather-manny-pacquiao-TMZ-02They're not officially in negotiations, but Manny Pacquiao's promoter tells TMZ Sports there's a 75% chance of a rematch with Floyd Mayweather.

We spoke with Bob Arum -- who says the two camps are on great terms. In fact, when Floyd sat ringside at Manny's fight this weekend, it was all thanks to Team Pacquiao.

"Floyd called us and asked for tickets," Arum says, "It's a great sign. I'd love for the fight to happen. I'd make it 75% that it happens."

Arum -- who's been in the fight game for decades -- says he simply doesn't believe Mayweather's fighting days are over.

"Based on my experience, I feel like [Floyd's] getting the itch to come back."

We'll see ...

We asked the original Johnny Rico at LAX what he thought about his 1997 cult classic being reprieved ... and his answer could trigger an epic nerd freak-out.

Miesha Tate If Ronda Loses At 207 ... She's Done With UFC

11/5/2016 12:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Miesha Tate says the Ronda Rousey farewell fighting tour might be pretty short ... like, one fight short ... telling TMZ Sports Rousey will retire immediately if she loses to Amanda Nunes at 207.

Little backstory ... Tate and Rousey hate each other ... and pretty much always have.

So, when we got Miesha out in L.A. we wanted to know how she felt about the news Ronda's career is winding down ... did she shed a tear, or pop some champagne when she heard?

Apparently she did neither ... and that's because she saw the whole thing coming. In fact, Tate says if Ronda loses her next fight, she'll quit right there.

There's obviously no love lost between the two ladies ... but still, if you've heard Ronda talk lately you kinda get the feeling Tate is onto something here.

Reggie Bush In Maury Povich Territory Woman Claims He's the Daddy

11/4/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1103_reggie_bush_Monique-Exposito_tmz_instagramReggie Bush is living in a world of uncertainty, because a woman claims he's the father of her unborn baby ... sources tell TMZ Sports.

The woman -- Monique -- is a nightclub waitress who lives in Miami. Our sources say early on in her pregnancy, she contacted Reggie and there were discussions about terminating the pregnancy in return for a large payment. We're told ultimately the discussions went nowhere.

Our sources say Monique, who is now 6 months pregnant, hired Florida attorney Marwan Porter, but this time around it's about child support.

We're told there has NOT been a DNA test, but Reggie will own up to his obligations if the tests show he's the father.

As for Reggie, there appeared to be issues back in August, around the time Monique first contacted him, because he left Buffalo Bills training camp to fly to California to work things out with his wife, Lilit, with whom he has 2 kids.

A rep for Reggie tells TMZ, "He's aware of the rumors and remains happily married."

11/4/2016 6:56 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1104-drake-taylor-swift-velvet-INSTAGRAM-01Drake and Taylor Swift are giving up music and going into soap opera writing, or they should ... based on the way they're pumping up the rumors about them banging.

Drake teased fans early Friday morning by posting a pic of himself and Taylor from behind, both dressed to the nines. At first glance it looks like they were a coupled up on the town last night.

Truth is the pic is from nearly 2 weeks ago at his 30th birthday bash. T-Swift also posted a pic of herself in the same outfit last week ... as the buzz was building that they hooked up at his party.

Our sources say all this is really just about them making music, but both of 'em are clearly playing this for all it's worth.   

Sign 'em up, Shonda Rhimes

Beyonce, Dixie Chicks Scrubbed from CMA Website, Social Media After Racist Fans Comment

11/3/2016 1:48 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1103-beyonce-cma-awards-gettyupdate_graphic_red_bar2:45 PM PT -- The CMAs have started repopulating its social media with images of Beyonce and the Dixie Chicks. The images were only posted AFTER they became aware we were working on the story.

Even the Dixie Chicks, who rarely say anything in the media these days, are reacting to the controversy on Twitter.

1103_dixie_chicks_tweetThose reposted images of Bey on Instagram and Twitter are already getting blasted with comments -- some racist and some in support of Beyonce. We'll say this ... the Beyhive is woke.

1103-bee-bomb-beyonce-cma-awards-instgram-03update_grey_gray_barThe folks at the Country Music Awards don't have the stomach for 4 strong women, 1 of whom is black, because they have scrubbed all references and images of Beyonce and the Dixie Chicks from their website.

The performance of Beyonce's hit, "Daddy Lessons," with the Dixie Chicks was by all rights the highlight of the show. Thursday morning Bey and the Chicks had a prominent presence on CMAWorld.com. But check it out now ... it's gone ... completely.

Sources directly connected with the CMAs tell TMZ, the honchos folded to fans who posted racist and other harsh comments. We're told the honchos were especially concerned about the reaction to Beyonce's support and the support of the Dixie Chicks for the Black Lives Matter movement.

Some of the comments included, "That's right folks. Beyonce performed at the CMAs last night & is on a mission to take country music away from us, hardworking white people!" And, "Beyonce overrated racist n***er bitch."

The comments go on ... "@Beyonce the cop hater? No thanks," and, "What place does @Beyonce who vilifies police officers who keep us safe have to do with #CMAawards50?"

In addition to its website, the CMAs have scrubbed the women from all social media platforms. They did not delete the women from Snapchat ... they only deleted the ladies from CMA accounts where users can place comments.

We're told the CMA people "just want this to go away" and feel it was probably a mistake to invite the 4 women in the first place.
