Breaking News

Ariana Grande is sharing her heartbreak over Mac Miller's death for the first time, and her emotions include anger, sadness ... and deep regret she couldn't get him to stop using drugs.

Ariana posted a video she'd shot of Mac back when they were dating -- it's a touching clip of both of them giggling as he playfully asks her to stop recording. In the caption, she says, "I'm so mad, I'm so sad I don't know what to do. you were my dearest friend."

She adds, "I'm so sorry I couldn't fix or take your pain away. I really wanted to."

Mac and Ariana were a couple for about 18 months, and he was by her side during the Manchester bombing.

She insinuates they had discussed the possibility of him overdosing ... saying, "I really can't wrap my head around it, we talked about this. so many times."

As we reported, Mac's friend Shane says Ariana was extremely supportive when Mac was sobering up, and went to great lengths to keep him on that path. 

Pete Rose 'I'm In Poor Health' ... 'and Disabled'

9/14/2018 9:05 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Pete Rose says his health is "deteriorating" -- and his income has taken a serious hit -- and he's worried his ex-wife is bleeding him dry. 

The ex-MLB star had previously acknowledged that he had heart issues -- with 3 major procedures in the past 5 years -- but now, Rose has filed new docs saying his health is getting worse. 

"[Rose] is currently disabled and can barely walk or travel," the 77-year-old said in new court docs obtained by TMZ Sports

"His health is deteriorating and has a heart condition and on blood thinners." 

Rose added, "I am in poor health and disabled ... and have trouble walking."

In addition to his health concerns, Rose also says he lost 2 jobs in 2017 -- he was axed by FOX Sports and Hit King -- and because of that, his yearly income has already dropped by $550,000. 

Rose says he still makes $453k per year -- but has major expenses including attorney's fees and other "great debts."

The docs are all part of his nasty divorce with his estranged wife, Carol Rose. Pete is trying to block her from getting more spousal support and attorney's fees. 

Pete has previously begged the court to finalize the divorce once and for all, so he can marry his current girlfriend while he's still relatively able-bodied. 

Mac Miller's Close Friend Ariana Was Incredible In Pushing for Mac's Sobriety

9/11/2018 7:38 AM PDT

Ariana Grande played a pivotal role in supporting Mac Miller's sobriety, and wanted him to be healthy more than anything else in the world ... so says one of Mac's close friends.

Shane Powers -- who built a close relationship with Mac in L.A. -- went on his podcast, "The Shane Show," Monday to remember his friend. Powers praised Mac's talent, personality and also hit on his struggles with addiction.

In the wake of his death, some on social media pointed to Ariana Grande as a source of Mac's struggles, but Shane assured his listeners nothing could be further from the truth.

In fact -- Shane said Grande was "incredible" in supporting Mac when he was sobering up -- constantly calling and asking what she could do next to help Mac continue to take steps in the right direction.

Powers says Ariana was ready to "go to the wall" to help Mac and knows the rapper's untimely death was devastating for Ariana.

TMZ broke the story -- Mac and Ariana split back in May -- but at the time, we were told they remained close friends.

Ariana posted a photo of the rapper Saturday without a caption.

Matt Barnes Gets Restraining Order Against Baby Mama

9/5/2018 1:38 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Matt Barnes has just obtained a temporary restraining order against his baby mama, Gloria Govan, in the wake of her arrest at their kids' school, TMZ Sports has learned.

As part of the court order, Govan must stay at least 100 yards away from the kids. She can see the kids once per week for 4 hours but a professional monitor has to be present -- and Gloria must foot the bill for the monitor.

Gloria is allowed to be near Matt to get the kids, but she must be peaceful.

Gloria is also not allowed to take the kids outside of L.A. County during her visitation unless she gets written permission from Matt.

Matt's attorney, Samantha Spector, tells TMZ Sports, "Today wasn't about Matt or Gloria. It was about the children and their safety. This was a good day for those kids, and that's all that matters."

The next hearing is scheduled for the end of Sept. -- where Gloria can argue to change the arrangement. 

As we previously reported, cops arrested Govan on August 31 after she allegedly blocked Matt from picking up their 9-year-old twin boys on Matt's scheduled custodial day.

Matt claims Govan used her car as a weapon against him -- and claims he feared for his life (and the lives of his kids) and Gloria punched the gas in her Escalade and "[barreled] toward me."

"I am ever thankful that no child or parent was hit by Gloria and her 17-foot-long Escalade as she endangered every child's and adult's safety when she plowed through the parking lot."

In court docs, Matt claims Gloria put their children and other kids at the school in physical danger -- and Matt claims the twins have been traumatized by Gloria's actions and subsequent arrest. 

Matt and Gloria got married back in 2012 but split almost 2 years later. Their divorce wasn't finalized until 2016

Gloria is now engaged to Matt's former Lakers teammate, Derek Fisher.

Kourtney Kardashian & Younes Not Back Together Your Eyes Are Deceiving You!!!

9/4/2018 2:00 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

There's an old saying ... Who ya gonna believe? Me or your lyin' eyes? Well, in Kourtney Kardashian's case ... what you see in the photo taken this weekend of her and Younes Bendjima, just isn't what it seems.

We got the pic of Kourtney and her ex on the down-low in Malibu over the weekend -- in the parking lot of a sushi joint -- and by all outward appearances it seemed they got back together.

Not so. Sources close to the former couple say Kourtney is happily single and is not back with her 25-year-old ex.

We're told YB's been in L.A. for weeks now wanting to meet up with his ex for closure, and Monday's rendezvous was just Kourtney giving him that chance to wrap it in a bow. It's the first time they've met face-to-face since she dumped him earlier this year. 

The good news for everyone else ... both of these hotties are still very much on the market. 

'Lopez' Star Ray Diaz My Ex is Killing My Hollywood Rep!!! Wins Restraining Order

9/4/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Actor Ray Diaz -- who starred alongside George Lopez for one season on "Lopez" -- says his ex-gf's domestic violence accusations are derailing his chances of working in Hollywood ... and she's the one who's actually been abusive towards him.

The actor tells TMZ ... he's had trouble landing acting gigs since his ex accused him of beating her. TMZ broke the story ... Ray's gf at the time alleged his violent ways resulted in scratches on her neck and bruising on her leg. However ... Diaz says she's the one who has flown into violent rages with him in the past ... forcing him to run to court and file for a restraining order. For the incident Diaz was not charged. 

According to docs obtained by TMZ ... a judge granted the restraining order last week and Diaz's ex must now stay at least 100 yards clear of him for a year. She's also been ordered to take down any images of him from her social media.

We reached out to Ray's ex, so far no word back.

Slash I'll Help Ex-Wife Out if She Agrees to Divorce Deal ... She Fires Back

8/30/2018 4:40 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

4:41 PM PT -- Perla's attorney, Marty Singer, tells us unlike what Slash may think, ending the marriage won't be that easy. Singer says, "Slash is well aware of the significant claims that have been made by Perla as to why the divorce documents cannot be finalized at this time." 

Singer says, "These include claims reflected in Perla’s court filings that there was a multi-million dollar audit settlement that was concealed from Perla, not paying in excess of $1,500,000 in child and spousal support payments, and significant advances received by Slash that will affect his future spousal and child support payments."  

He continues, "Even though Slash reported over $45,000,000 of income last year, my client’s court papers allege that he refused to pay for a $1500 drum set that was requested by his son, a musician in a band, so that he could have a drum set at his mother’s home where he spends approximately 90% of his time. The other drum sets are at Slash’s home and studio where Slash does not allow his teenage son to remove them.”Slash says his estranged wife is holding up finalizing their divorce for a bunch of trivial reasons -- the latest of which he says he's happy to help with ... if she agrees to close the book on their marriage.

The Guns N' Roses rocker filed new divorce docs responding to Perla Ferrar's latest claim in their ongoing war -- that Slash is hiding money from her, and that his new girlfriend is possibly responsible for harassing her and their kids online.

In the docs -- obtained by TMZ -- Slash shoots down the notion he's concealing income, saying he's got cash coming in from multiple sources ... lots of which had been earned before they ever got hitched.

He also raises a pretty hilarious scenario -- that Perla allegedly asked him to buy one of their boys a third drum set, then bought a fourth drum set on her own ... and demanded Slash reimburse her. He says that's another reason she's holding up their divorce.

In addition to that, Slash says Perla is griping about ways they stay in contact -- insisting she be allowed to call him directly for custody scheduling or emergencies. He says they'd already agreed to use a program that eliminates the need to talk directly ... but she's insisting she be able to get on the horn with her ex whenever she thinks the need arises. 

Lastly, Slash addresses Perla's accusation that his live-in girlfriend created an IG account and was posting personal info about their family that could be harmful to their kids. Slash says he was alarmed at first, but quickly realized the account was aimed at Perla, not their boys ... and that a lot of the stuff being posted was from Perla's own account.

He says he's willing to help her get to the bottom of the IG harassment ... IF she agrees to the terms they struck in their divorce deal ... and IF she finally agrees to get divorced.

8/30/2018 10:22 AM PDT

Charlie Sheen admits there's a good chance he WILL be on "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" now that Denise Richards is a cast member, but the conditions gotta be juuust right.

The ex-"Two and a Half Men" star was in Malibu Thursday when he seemed to confirm he'll, at the very least, make an 'RHOBH' cameo -- although, based on his coy response, we'd say he's still negotiating terms.

For now, Charlie would only gives us a preview of how one of his scenes might play out on the show. He's got a few caveats, but still ... sounds like he'd embrace a bit of the reality show world.

Kyle Richards -- who's also on the show -- told us last week Charlie could very well make an appearance. He and Denise share custody of their two daughters ... and they're often hot and cold with each other. 

In other words ... get ready for WINNING TV, baby!

EXCLUSIVE

There's nothing good going on with Jenelle Evans and her exes. 

Nathan Griffith -- Jenelle's 2nd baby daddy -- says the "Teen Mom 2" star is purposely keeping their son away from him ... and it's driving Dad crazy. 

Nathan just wants to spend time with their 4-year-old son, Kaiser, but he claims Jenelle is using phony excuses to stop Nathan from seeing his boy.

He says Jenelle has been giving him the runaround ever since she was cleared of criminal wrongdoing in a child abuse investigation -- which was triggered by Nathan going to police.

Nathan says he doesn't even know where Kaiser is on any given day, 'cause Jenelle doesn't keep him informed ... and he's just about had it with her antics.

Talk about baby mama drama. 

As for Jenelle's other ex ... Courtland Keith Rogers was busted over the weekend in North Carolina and accused of assaulting a woman.  

For those keeping score at home ... that's 2 baby daddies, and 2 major issues. 

'Teen Mom' Jenelle Evans Ex-Husband Arrested For Assaulting a Woman

8/27/2018 11:02 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

12:45 PM PT -- The arrest warrant issued for Courtland Rogers breaks down a disturbing alleged narrative. The court magistrate says they found probable cause to believe that Rogers had brutally attacked a woman named Lindsey Frazier on Sunday by allegedly slapping her, dragging her by the hair and pulling her hair out. The magistrate also says Frazier credibly alleged Rogers had threatened her and her family's lives ... and threw her phone against a wall to prevent her from calling 911.

The ex-husband of "Teen Mom 2" star Jenelle Evans got busted again in North Carolina -- this time he's accused of assaulting a woman.

According to legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- Courtland Keith Rogers was arrested Sunday in Leland, NC and booked into the Brunswick County Jail for one count of misdemeanor assault on a woman. We're told there was an open warrant for Rogers' arrest, and Leland PD executed it.

It's unclear when the alleged assault happened. We've got calls in to law enforcement. 

It's been a tough year for Jenelle's ex -- he was arrested earlier this year on drug-related charges -- delivering substances, and possession with intent to sell and distribute. He had to drop $15k to bond out after that bust.

This assault arrest will cost him a lot more -- bail's been set at $100k.

EXCLUSIVE

Tyga's soaking up life in the single lane ... and that's why there's ZERO chance he'll get back with his ex, Blac Chyna.

Sources close to the rapper tell TMZ ... Tyga and BC didn't know they were going to the same event over the weekend. The bash was a birthday party for one of Tyga's business partners ... someone Chyna also knows.

Thing is ... Tyga and Chyna never interacted the entire time they were at the Meatpacking District hot spot, Catch NYC. We're told they also never spoke when the after-party moved over to Marquee.

Sources say Tyga wants to keep things with BC exactly how they are now -- with their previous relationship in the rearview mirror.

See, love doesn't always win.

Safaree at VMAs Takes Shots at Nicki Karma's a Bitch

8/20/2018 5:49 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Safaree says he isn't worried about potentially running into his ex, Nicki Minaj, on the red carpet at the VMAs ... but he does have some advice for her.

We got the 'Love & Hip Hop' star Monday as he was heading to Radio City Music Hall in NYC to attend the MTV awards show when he took some clear shots at Nicki on the heels of their online beef ... not to mention all her other Twitter squabbles this week. 

As we reported ... Safaree claimed Nicki once tried to stab him with a knife in 2014 -- she called him a liar. Nicki also called out Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner over the weekend for working together to push his album sales past hers on the charts.

Safaree's got some thoughts on that too ... pick your battles, Nick. And grow with the times.

Our guy also asks if he beefed up security to avoid any nasty run-ins with Nicki on the red carpet -- like MTV brass is already doing to accommodate the feuding exes -- but he insists he's only rolling deep as a result of his robbery earlier this year.

As far as who should get top-tier seating between Nicki, Travis and Kylie ... Safaree's got a pretty hilarious answer ... and kind of an obvious one if you think about it.

EXCLUSIVE

A former 'Steve Harvey Show' actress abandoned her estranged husband after he suffered a stroke, and left him completely broke and on his ass ... according to the gent himself.

Wendy Raquel Robinson's estranged hubby, Marco Perkins, claims in divorce docs -- obtained by TMZ -- he needs Wendy to pay him significant spousal support when their divorce is all said and done 'cause she allegedly left him destitute after he had a stroke back in 2015.

Marco says he enjoyed a lavish lifestyle while married to Wendy, and is asking a judge to make her cough up at least $10,000 a month so he can maintain that life -- adding that she can afford it, since he believes her monthly income is in the ballpark of $200k/month.

We broke the story ... Marco filed for divorce last week after 15 years together with Wendy. They have no minor children.

Wendy played school principal Regina "Piggy" Grier on Harvey's hit sitcom from 1996 to 2002.
