Getting Handsy

... In Sin City

EXCLUSIVE

0705-khloe-kardashian-james-harden-03Khloe Kardashian and James Harden couldn't keep their hands off each other in Las Vegas this weekend ... and TMZ Sports has a PIC of the PDA. 

The two hit the pool at the Encore Hotel in Las Vegas on Saturday ... and as you can see in the photo, they were pretty affectionate right out in the open -- more proof they're full on dating. 

Sources at the pool tell us they were doing couply things -- she was rubbing his arms and his stomach while they kicked it in a cabana with about 20 other people. 

Later that night, they had a romantic dinner together at Red 8 -- before going to the Chris Brown concert together. 

Meantime, Lamar Odom still thinks there's hope ...

Mariah Carey finally got billionaire James Packer on her turf -- Las Vegas -- just in time for the couple's first 4th of July together.

They shut down the rooftop deck of the swanky Mirage Villas for a Saturday evening celebration. We're told James dropped THOUSANDS to rent out the whole joint for Mariah, her managers, and Brett Ratner. This is the first time they've been together back in the States since Packer started courting Mimi during their Mediterranean tour aboard his mega yacht.

On the flip side ... Nick Cannon shared a meme addressing his single status captioned "I'm dating me."

To each his own ...

Khloe Kardashian

I'm with the Beard ...

Date Night with James Harden!

Exclusive Photo

0705-khloe-kardashian-james-hardenKhloe Kardashian's dipping into the hoops pool again -- she and NBA superstar James Harden hit Las Vegas for the 4th and TMZ Sports got the first pics of their date night. 

Khloe, James, and his famous beard were spotted leaving dinner Saturday night at Red 8, a fancy Asian restaurant in the Wynn. Vegas sources tell us they looked very couple-y -- snuggling side by side during the meal. 

After dinner they went to Drai's Nightclub for Chris Brown's performance.

It's interesting ... Khloe is still legally married to ex-NBA star Lamar Odom, and as we've reported -- there's been zero movement forward in their divorce.

As for how Khloe and the Houston Rockets stud hooked up -- well, Harden was one of the coaches for Kanye West's basketball birthday bash at Staples. 

Never hurts to have an in with Kim & Kanye.

Miley Cyrus

In Lust with Stella

7/4/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0702_Miley-and-Stella-Maxwell-hugging_wmMiley Cyrus and Victoria's Secret model Stella Maxwell are not pranking anyone ... they cannot keep their hands and lips off each other ... so say the people who hang with them.

Their make out session after a video shoot this week had a whiff of doubt that it was real, as opposed to something promotional for the new song. But people who were at the shoot tell us Miley and Stella were inseparable during the many hours it took to get the shots.  

They constantly kissed, caressed, held hands, and Stella got very comfortable on Miley's lap.

People who have been around them recently say the relationship is highly charged, not so much romantic as full-on lust. 

Short story ... it seems real.

'The Bachelorette' Producers

We Love Sex on the Show!!!

7/3/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0702-kaitlyn-nick-bachelorette-getty-01Kaitlyn Bristowe and Nick Viall apparently were the wet dreams of "The Bachelorette" producers ... they were drooling to make a story line out of the sexual tryst, but the other guys wouldn't bite. 

Sources connected with the show tell TMZ, some of the contestants definitely knew Kaitlyn and Nick had sex. We're told producers did everything they could to goose those contestants into talking about it and making it a big deal.

Now here's the rub. The contestants wouldn't bite. We're told they all knew producers wanted to make it a story line and a source of conflict, but they felt if they did that it would help Nick and therefore hurt them.

The show has still not squarely addressed the liaison. 

Cody Simpson

About Selena Gomez ...

Sometimes a Lick Is Just a Lick

7/2/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Cody Simpson is no "f**k boy" for Selena Gomez -- that’s his side of the story, anyway.

Our photog caught the Australian pop star and a buddy early Wednesday morn on the Sunset Strip, and asked about Selena's IG of them all enjoying cones and cream together.

Check it out ... Cody tried to shut down any rebound rumors by claiming he and his friend are "no f**k boys." Google it if you don't know it, but basically ... he ain't trying to bang her. Or so he says.  

His ex, Gigi Hadid, and Joe Jonas also came up ... and we're now 100% positive a Simpson-Jonas collabo will not be happening any time soon. Mostly though, this 2 AM-ish video is proof Cody and co. had a strong night at the bars!

Ahh, the single life.

Miley Cyrus

Makin' Out

With Hot New Chick

7/1/2015 1:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0701_miley_cyrus_make_out_launch2Miley Cyrus has bagged herself a Victoria's Secret model ... and during a break from filming a new music video Tuesday night in Los Angeles ... they locked up in a heavy make-out session.

The girl's Stella Maxwell, and she and Miley have been hanging out quite a bit lately. Miley posted a photo with Stella a few weeks back and captioned it,emoji_miley

The photo and video were shot Tuesday night in a parking lot in Hollywood. They both saw the cameras and clearly kissed to make a point, and it did not seem like a typical Miley gag.

We had to blur the video because Miley's hand goes south with Stella's help.

Miley has said recently she's bisexual.

Sean Penn

Charlize Who?

Gives Minka Kelly Birthday Dinner of a Lifetime

EXCLUSIVE

0629-sean-penn-minka-tmz-instagram
Sean Penn and Charlize Theron called it quits just 2 weeks ago, and he's already doing his laundry with another hot chick.

These pics were taken last Tuesday at French Laundry, the uber-fancy/delicious/exclusive restaurant in the Napa Valley. Sean was celebrating Minka Kelly's 35th birthday, along with 3 other people.

They were by no means hush hush ... people at other tables heard Sean tell the other 3 he and Minka met at a Haiti charity event.

They had a feast to end all, with a chicken with the feet still attached, truffle mac and cheese and a birthday cake. The people at Sean's table, along with others in the restaurant, serenaded Minka to "Happy Birthday."

Sean picked up the tab ... and it was pricey.

Minka has not mentioned Sean, but after the dinner she Instagrammed, "Birthday festivities off to a pretty magical start."

I'm One Of The Poorest People

In The Room

EXCLUSIVE

0626-mariah-carey-james-packer-rich-crew-tmz-01Mariah Carey is used to being the top diva at the table but after a power lunch with a bunch of billionaires she had to take a back seat ... financially. 

Mariah finally got off the yacht and grabbed a bite with her new Australian beau, James Packer, and a few of his billionaire mates.

Yeah Mariah is worth $500 mil but that’s pennies compared to her dinner company: James Packer $4.6 bil, Kerry Stokes $1.26 bil, and top dog Ron Perelman $14.7 bil.

At least Mariah wasn’t at the bottom of the financially stacked list ... her pal, Brett Ratner was also there and he’s only worth $65 mil … he’ll only have to worry about leaving the tip.

Mariah Carey's New BF

You Motorboatin' Son of a Bitch

6/25/2015 8:56 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0625-mariah-carey-james-packer-gallery-launch-akm-gsi-01Mariah Carey's billionaire boyfriend went full throttle on his yacht -- getting a face full of her cleavage, and proving the old adage ... it's really good to own a yacht. 

James Packer was putting on a motorboating clinic while MC chilled on his vessel. As we've been reporting, they've been cruising around Italy all week, and there's already talk of marriage.

If this up close look at the family jewels doesn't close the deal ... nothing will.

Nice full court press, Mariah. 

Chris Martin

Late Night with Kylie Minogue

... Hunger Games Over?

6/24/2015 4:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0624-main-chris-martin-kylie-minogue-inf-01Chris Martin was arm-in-arm with Kylie Minogue -- at 1:30 AM in a London park -- which may or may not be news to his GF of several months.

Chris and Kylie were strolling together early Monday morning after her concert in Hyde Park -- and the late/early hour of has some people thinking he and Jennifer Lawrence are dunzo.

J-Mart seemed pretty tight earlier this month snuggled up in the back of Bono’s SUV, and it's entirely possible Chris and Kylie were just a couple of non-banging pals getting fresh air.

Y'know what they say, though -- the nighttime is the right time. For what? We'll leave that up to Jennifer. 

Mariah and the Billionaire

We're Already Talking Marriage!!!

6/24/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

06223_mariah_kissing_WmMariah Carey doesn't waste time ... just days after she hopped on a yacht with new billionaire BF James Packer, they're already talking marriage. 

Our Mariah sources say it's insane ... they've been "dating" for just a matter of days, but he's already told her he wants to marry her, sooner rather than later. The soonest can be when she's officially divorced from Nick Cannon. But we're told Mariah is open to tying the knot with James.

We got this photo of Mariah and James on the boat, wearing matching robes ... almost like they're on a honeymoon.  

They've been cruising from country to country since late last week, and James blared Mariah's music for everyone to hear, including all the people on vastly smaller boats.

We broke the story ... James is obsessed with Mariah and her music. He went to her concert in Vegas a month-and-a-half ago and has been pursuing her ever since.

I'm Getting Piped In

On My Boyfriend's Yacht!!!

6/23/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0622-mariah-carey-capri-yacht-TMZ-01Mariah Carey's new boyfriend is so smitten ... he's treating everyone on his yacht to a piece of her.

Australian billionaire James Packer threw a party for Mariah Sunday off the coast of Sardinia. We're told a bunch of "bougies" were on the boat and the entertainment was all Mariah, all the time. Packer is obsessed with her music and played it the entire evening.

TMZ broke the story ... Packer has been pursuing Mariah for months. Here's what's weird. We're told he went to one of her Vegas shows a month and a half ago and hadn't seen her again until she jumped on his yacht last week. Yet we're told things got "immediately serious."

In other words, Packer is in hook, line and sinker. As for Mariah, we're told she's game for something serious.
