Offset Hey Cardi, I'll Be Home for XMAS ... If You Let Me

12/13/2018 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Cardi B and Offset might officially be on the outs, but Daddy wants to come home for Christmas. 

Sources close to the couple tell us ... Offset wants to spend the holidays with Cardi and their little girl -- specifically, Xmas Eve and day as well as a few days leading up to that. We're told Offset knows how important spending Kulture's first Christmas with his daughter will be, and wants to be there. 

Our sources also say Offset won't be coming over empty-handed. As a notoriously generous gift giver, we're told he'll have lots of presents for his new baby ... and, of course, some things for Cardi as well (assuming she accepts them, and we're guessing she will).

Sources close to Cardi tell us the "Bodak Yellow" rapper hasn't yet made up her mind if she'll allow Offset to celebrate the holidays with her as a family ... and the plans haven't been discussed.

We're told Offset plans on seeing his other kids too -- he's got 3 others from previous relationships. In other words, Papa will be on the move. 

As we've already told you ... Offset wants Cardi back, plain and simple. He feels like his haters are standing in his way ... but he's determined to win back her heart. That feeling might be mutual. We're told Cardi still feels love for him, despite her publicly saying otherwise

No word on whether they'll rekindle their relationship and stave off a divorce, but our sources say that people close to both of them think there's a reasonable shot they can work it out. 

There's no better time for some magic like that than the holidays. Ya listening, Santa?

Matt Damon No Hard Feelings ... Dining with Ben's Ex-GF

12/12/2018 7:12 AM PST

Matt Damon and Ben Affleck are like brothers, so our eyebrows went north when we saw this pic of Matt hanging out with Ben's ex after a bad breakup.

Matt broke bread with Lindsay Shookus Tuesday night for an 'SNL' bash at Lattanzi Restaurant in NYC. You're looking at the 2 of them leaving, and Matt seemed to divert more smoothly than Jason Bourne ever did on screen.

By all accounts, Ben's drinking played a big role in the breakup. TMZ broke the story Ben decided he needed help and went to rehab. He's been out for a while and is now clean and sober. 

Considering Matt is hosting 'SNL' this coming Saturday, it might just be a business thing that Ben and Lindsay were both at the same party -- Lindsay's a producer for the show. Matt, of course, also slayed as Brett Kavanaugh on 'SNL' this year, so they clearly have had interactions on the set. 

Pete Davidson Back in the Saddle ... Date Night with Mystery Woman

12/11/2018 8:42 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Put him in, coach -- Pete Davidson's back playing the field after the Ariana Grande breakup, and we gotta say ... dude knows how to class it up for date night.

The 'SNL' vet was spotted having dinner 1-on-1 Monday night at Carbone in NYC, with a lovely lady sitting across from him. You can see in the pic, it was full wine and dine mode.

This is one of the first times we've seen Pete out on the town with a new girl since he and Ariana split in October and called off their engagement. We're told he has been casually dating. It's also certainly a nice change of pace considering how rocky things have been for him since the breakup, privately and publicly.

Just last week, he announced Internet trolls were encouraging him to kill himself ... but vowed he'd never do any such thing. Way to bounce back, Pete.

As they say ... thank u, next. 

Paris Hilton DJ'ing Her Ass Off and Lovin' It ... Post-Chris Zylka Split

12/9/2018 2:32 PM PST
Exclusive Video

Wondering how Paris Hilton is holding up after breaking off yet another engagement with her latest fiance? Here's your answer right here ... cue 'In Da Club,' please. 

The starlet was back to doing what she does best this weekend in Miami -- being the life of a party as she DJ'd a set at Wall Lounge, where she was on the turntables for a majority of the night. As you can see ... she doesn't seem fazed in the slightest by her breakup.

It wasn't just her body language either that tells us she might be as happy as ever -- her song selection speaks for itself, too. JT's "Can't Stop the Feeling!" ... "Opus" by Eric Prydz ... "Free" by Ultra Nate ... and an "iconic as f***" song that cuts out before it can play.

Talk about feel-good! She's kinda been on that tip since calling things off with Chris Zylka, having looked in very good spirits lately, sans her pricey hardware

As they say ... back to business. 

Cardi B Now I'm Rapping About Divorce ... But This Ain't for Pub, Okurrrr?!!

12/9/2018 11:00 AM PST

12:43 PM PST -- Cardi just took to social media for another one of her video explainers, in which she assured folks that her split with Offset was no publicity stunt. Unclear if she's directly responding to Offset's Twitter plea or talk of her switching up the lyrics to 'Motorsport,' but either way ... she's putting any of those rumors to rest. 

11:00 AM PST -- It's now clear Cardi has her husband's attention. Offset just admitted on Twitter ... he misses her. Reconciliation? Door opened?

Cardi B and Offset's breakup is now fueling her live performances -- she dropped the big "D" into one of her biggest hits with her now estranged husband.

When Cardi took the stage for Chicago's Jingle Bash show she performed "Motorsport" -- the Migos hit featuring her and Nicki Minaj -- but she switched up the lyrics to reflect her split from Offset.

She rapped during the Saturday night set ... “I get up set off. I turn Offset on. I told him the other day, yeah, we gon' get a divorce!”

For those who don't know ... the original line goes, "I get up set off. I turn Offset on. I told him the other day. Man, we should sell that porn."

The crowd definitely took note of Cardi's edit on her verse. The big question: Is Offset paying attention?

Makes sense Cardi added the "divorce" line -- as we reported, she also did the show without her massive 8-carat diamond ring.

We know what you're thinking, and the deal is ... it's Cardi's to keep. Once they tied the knot, Offset lost all rights to the rock.

Sorry, that's just how the carats crumble.

'Surviving R. Kelly' Cops Track Down Shooting Threat ... It's a Chicago Number

12/8/2018 8:54 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The investigation into who threatened to shoot up an NYC screening of "Surviving R. Kelly" -- the documentary about his alleged sexual abuse of women -- has led cops to someone in R. Kelly's hometown.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... NYPD's person of interest is a man with Chicago's 773 area code. We're told cops aren't ready to release the man's name yet, and it's unclear if he has any direct connection to Kelly.

'Surviving' was screened Tuesday night at NeueHouse in NYC, but 20 minutes into it someone made a phone threat. The male caller said someone was in the audience with a gun and would open fire if the screening continued. The venue was immediately evacuated.

R. Kelly's ex-wife, Andrea Kelly, told Variety she thought the singer was connected to the threats. Andrea was at NeueHouse and she and several other accusers were scheduled to hold a Q&A session immediately following the screening.

The docuseries premieres in January on Lifetime.

We reached out R. Kelly and NYPD for comment ... both declined.

Cardi B Look, Offset ... No Wedding Ring!!! Just a Big Ol' Smile

12/8/2018 7:08 AM PST

10:00 AM PT -- Along with no ring, we've learned Cardi's no longer following Offset on Instagram ... and he's responded in kind.Cardi B is leaving one stone totally turned -- her giant engagement rock is off her hand, and she's making sure everyone knows it.

Cardi strolled into Madison Square Garden Friday night for iHeartRadio's Jingle Ball concert and proudly showed off her much lighter left hand to fans and photogs.

No doubt, she's sending up a signal -- to her estranged hubby, Offset ... and possibly to all the future suitors waiting to shoot their shot. Y'know her DMs are lit, right now.

Just last month, she was rocking the 8-carat, $550k ring while onstage for a Pandora event in NYC. Things change.

Earlier this week, Cardi announced she and Offset were separated and likely headed for divorce.

If she's busted up about it, she's doing a great job of hiding it in public. Ever the professional, Cardi shook off any Offset-Summer Bunni drama ... and ripped through her set at MSG. No ring required.

Olivia Culpo These Boots Are Made for Shopping ... and Making Exes Jealous

12/8/2018 9:03 AM PST

Olivia Culpo's holiday shopping outfit is giving everyone lots of ideas ... for gifts. And, other things.

The former Miss Universe looked catwalk-ready Friday, as she floated out of a Epione dermatology in Bev Hills, rocking a ridiculously hot pair of red thigh high boots.

'Tis the season for red ... and leather, apparently. Mind you, this is just her out-and-about running errands ensemble.

Olivia's holiday shopping list will NOT include a stop at a Rolex store. She's got that covered

We're not sure where her ex-bf, NFL star Danny Amendola, is at his moment -- but we know where he'd like to be. Just sayin', Danny.

Ariana Grande My Career's Thriving, But ... 'No Idea What the F*** I'm Doing'

12/7/2018 7:22 AM PST

Ariana Grande's 2018 has been a roller coaster ... and her emotions about it came spilling out as she accepted a Woman of the Year award. 

Ariana was honored at Billboard's Women in Music Awards Thursday night and went from smiling and joking to fighting back tears. She was thrilled about reaching new heights in her career -- culminating with the success of her "Thank U, Next" music vid. The singer said that might have people thinking she's on top of the world.

She quickly reminded the crowd it's been one of the worst years of her life, outside of music, adding ... "As far as my personal life goes, I really have no idea what the f*** I'm doing."

Ariana was clearly referring to her recent breakup with Pete Davidson ... and losing her ex-boyfriend, Mac Miller, when he tragically died in September. Not to mention dealing with the aftermath of last year's bombing at her Manchester concert.

Watch the video ... she also threw a jab at herself for giving away "love and forgiveness" to men. She says that's gonna change.

Ray J on Cardi B & Offset 'I Hope They Get Back Together'

12/6/2018 11:45 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Cardi B might not be showing signs of heartbreak from her breakup with Offset, but Ray J seems pretty bummed about it. Really bummed.

We got Ray J at Craig's in WeHo Wednesday night and wanted to get his take on hip-hop's huge news earlier this week after Cardi broke things off with Offset amid allegations he cheated and tried setting up a threesome with a Cardi wannabe

Ray J -- who earlier that evening hit up the Lakers game -- hopes Cardi and Offset get back together because he's adamant they belong together. Our guy also straight-up asks Ray J how bad of a look it is for Offset to try and finagle a threesome WITHOUT Cardi. In short, Ray J says it's no bueno.

Question is ... is the mere attempt grounds to end a marriage? Ray J also weighs in on that. 

Offset's Alleged Mistress I'm Sorry, Cardi B ... I'm So Ashamed!!!

12/5/2018 3:49 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The woman with whom Offset allegedly cheated -- not long before Cardi B gave birth -- says she's remorseful, and tells TMZ ... she never wanted to be a homewrecker.

Summer Bunni cried openly while telling us how guilty she feels after word got out her hooking up with Cardi's husband might have been a catalyst in the couple's split. SB is the woman Offset allegedly asked to arrange a threesome that would include rapper Cuban Doll.

Summer tells us she hasn't messed with Offset since Cardi had their baby, Kulture, but still feels ashamed for playing any role in breaking up their marriage. She insists she didn't know how serious Offset and Cardi were -- which seems absurd. They were married!

Bunni hasn't spoken directly to Cardi, but she tried to deliver an apology through us, and says she hopes the estranged couple will reconcile.

As we reported, Cardi says she and her "baby daddy" are still friends, but the love is gone.

Cardi B & Offset Cheating Rumors Swirl Amid Split ... He Wanted a Non-Cardi 3-Way???

12/5/2018 12:23 PM PST

The timing of Cardi B's shocking announcement that she and Offset had split is interesting, because it came shortly after alleged text messages leaked showing he was looking for a threesome ... and not with her.

As we reported ... Cardi revealed the rappers -- who wed last year and had a kid together in July -- have been trying to work things out for a long time but decided to call it quits. She says they're still friends and biz partners ... but are no longer in love.

The reason for the lost love is now a topic of speculation ... being fueled by texts Offset allegedly sent to a woman who goes by Summer Bunni asking her to hook up a ménage à trois with another female rapper, Cuban Doll.

The scandalous leak -- which sources tell us was orchestrated by another woman who had a falling out with Cuban -- also included a photo of a FaceTime convo with Offset.

Oh yeah, and Offset's texts appear to be from June 28 ... just a couple weeks before Cardi gave birth to their daughter, Kulture.

So far, neither Cardi nor Offset have addressed the cheating allegations, but as we reported ... he commented on Cardi's video announcing their split with "Y'all won."

Still unclear who y'all is ... or what they won. 

Ariana Grande New Ink Erases Pete, Dials Up Mac

12/2/2018 6:00 PM PST

Ariana Grande is slowly but surely erasing Pete Davidson from her life AND body ... updating a tattoo with a tribute to Mac Miller.

Ariana's hawk-eyed fans noticed in her behind-the-scenes footage for the "Thank U, Next" music video the tattoo "Myron" on her foot. The name belongs to Mac Miller's dog. The tattoo used to have the numbers "8414" ... a badge number that belonged to Pete's late father and firefighter who died in the September 11 attacks.

It's hard to tell, but you can definitely see the numbers are gone. In the video, you can see Ariana bending over and pointing to her foot to show off her new tat. She says, "Look at my Myron. Guys, look. How cool, right?"

This tattoo cover-up game is just the latest since Ariana broke off her engagement with Pete back in October. As you know ... she covered up a "Pete" tattoo on her finger ... first with a band-aid and later converting it into a heart.

Pete hasn't been taking this lying down either ... the Ariana-inspired bunny tattoo behind his ear was also 86'd. But, Ariana's latest ink upgrade no doubt shows Mac's still heavy on her mind. 

Not long after Mac died from an accidental overdose ... Ariana posted a video on her Instagram with Myron. It's crystal clear Ariana's got tons of love for this pup ... and she found a way to pay homage to Mac and his pooch while also erasing Pete from her life.

Two birds ... one stone.
