EXCLUSIVE

0824-justin-beiber-sofia-richie-akm-01Justin Bieber isn't dating a kid anymore -- his new girl, Sofia Richie, is now the BIG 1-8.

Justin and Sofia got their juice on Tuesday in North Hollywood, the day before she officially became a woman ... in age, anyway. They hadn't been seen together for about a week while Justin was overseas performing at a British music festival. 

Now they're not only reunited -- they're legal! You can stop cringing.

Tinder Sued CEO 'Super Liked' My Idea ... And Jacked It!

8/21/2016 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0819-tinder-super-like-tinder-01Tinder's idea of letting users "Super Like" each other beyond a basic right swipe is genius -- but it's also not theirs ... so claims a guy who's now suing the company.

John Mellesmoen claims in a new lawsuit he pitched the idea of the "Super Like" to Tinder's CEO, Sean Rad, back in 2014, and says Rad loved it ... promising to compensate him if the company ever used it. John says he hasn't seen a dime.

Mellesmoen claims he laid out the entire concept of the "Super Like" feature, which essentially allows users to buy someone a virtual drink instead of the just giving a "glance across the room" with a regular right swipe. 

Now Mellesmoen wants his cut. Only problem -- nothing's in writing. As for Tinder, a company spokesperson says this is a "baseless shakedown."

EXCLUSIVE

0819_gigi_hadid_zayn_malik_tahiti_kayak_launchZayn Malik is still rocking Gigi Hadid's boat ... and paddling it too.

Zayn gave Gigi's arms a break while the couple went kayaking Thursday during their Tahitian getaway. 

We haven't seen pics of them together in weeks, but nothing puts breakup rumors to rest like a romantic luxury South Pacific vacay.

Probably not the only workout they're getting on this trip ... we're pretty sure.

Robert Griffin III Wife Blindsided By Divorce ... Destroyed Over New GF

8/18/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0816_rg3_Rebecca-Liddicoat_Grete-Sadeiko_tmz_instagram_gettyRobert Griffin III and his wife have been separated for months -- after she found out he was dating a new woman ... and sources connected to the situation tell us she's absolutely devastated.

Sources close to the estranged couple tell us RG3 first met Florida State track star Grete Sadeiko through Instagram back in January ... roughly 7 months after his wife, Rebecca Liddicoat, gave birth to their daughter.

We're told the social media relationship turned real ... and when Rebecca found out about her in April, she was pissed.

The two separated shortly after. They haven't lived together in months. 

But get this ... one solid source tells us Rebecca was still working on trying to save the marriage as recently as this week ... and was blindsided on Tuesday by news that RG3 is "in the process of filing for divorce."

Now, with RG3 getting Grete's name tattooed on his arm, we're told Rebecca has given up on a possible reconciliation.

Bottom line ... this was no amicable split.

Avril Lavigne & Ryan Cabrera We're Friends Who Kiss & Cuddle

8/18/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0817-avril-lavigne-tmzAvril Lavigne and Ryan Cabrera had the most romantic steak dinner you've ever seen 2 "friends" have.

The duo was spotted Tuesday night at STK Midtown in NYC, sipping rosé and chowing down on filet and foie gras. Witnesses say they were cozy, cuddly and even kissed a few times.

Avril's been adamant they're just pals. As we reported, Ryan moved in with Avril after she ended things with Chad Kroeger -- but only because his GF kicked him out. That's what friends are for, right?

Ryan was in NYC for his My2K tour and obviously ... some QT time with his friend.

Zac Efron Hey, Simone Biles I Got Your Medal Right Here

8/16/2016 2:59 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0816_zac_efron_airport_splashZac Efron stuck his landing in Rio, and immediately hooked up with Simone Biles ... moments after she nailed down her 4th gold medal.

The timing is no accident -- Simone crushed hard on Zac and the two exchanged some flirty tweets after The Final Five won gold in the team competition. Next thing ya know, BOOM ... Zac's flying south, and getting a smooch from Simone on the 'Today' set.

It's a good guess NBC paid for Zac's first class ticket to Rio.

Sure, it's just a kiss on the cheek, but at this point ... would you bet against Simone ending up with the gold?

Billy Bob Thornton Johnny, I Never Banged Amber!!!

8/16/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0815-billy-bob-thorton-depp-mirror-tmzJohnny Depp could have saved the paint -- and the blood --- when he allegedly wrote the words "Billy Bob" with what was left of his finger on a mirror ... because Mr. Thornton says he never hooked up with Amber Heard.

TMZ broke the story ... Amber and her people claim in March, 2015 Johnny accidentally cut his fingertip off in the middle of an argument with Amber ... and did his artful handiwork on the mirror after accusing her of cheating with Billy Bob when they co-starred in the flick, "London Fields," which was set to be released in 2015.

Billy Bob tells us the cheating allegation is ridiculous ... "completely false."

Thornton says he never socialized with Amber off set, other than a cast dinner. Even on the set, he says he didn't hang with her ... he was mostly around members of the crew. He adds he didn't even have a friendship with the actress ... it was all professional, on the set, and that was it.

As for Johnny, even though they were on the same set, Billy Bob says they had no interaction ... did not even speak.

Billy Bob's been married to wife Connie Angland since 2014. He says he's talked to Connie about the story and assured her it was Johnny's fantasy.

The Kardashians The Game's Only 1 for 3 With Us

8/16/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0815-the-game-kardashians-tmz-instagramThe Kardashians say The Game's lying when he boasted he slept with 3 of them on his track, "Sauce" ... he's wrong about at least 2.

Sources close to the Kardashians tell us you can count out Kylie, Kendall, Khloe, Kourtney and Kris ... none of them had sex with Game.

The sources acknowledge Kim dated Game back in the day ... so that one's on the table for discussion, but that's it.

Khloe and Game have been pals for years, but the Kardashian sources are adamant ... strictly platonic.

That said, there's an interesting nugget. Game reached out to Kanye to get his blessing for the song, and Kanye said he didn't have a dog in the fight. Interesting ... Game didn't call Kim.

But ... we know Game sticks by his story. He nailed 3 of them.

Ryan Lochte Chillin' with Playboy Model Girlfriend ... In Rio

8/8/2016 1:28 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0808_ryan_lochte_and_kayla-rae-reid_instagramRyan Lochte's already a big winner in Rio -- because his hot Playboy Playmate girlfriend flew out to Brazil to hang with the Team USA swimmer.

Lochte's lady is Kayla Rae Reid -- a Playboy model who's been connected to Lochte for several months.  

Our sources say the two have been dating since March -- but things got serious in April when he posted the first pic of the two of them together on social media. Since then, she's met his family and things seem to be going well. 

Kayla is currently in Rio with Lochte -- the two were acting all coupley at the Beats House over the weekend. 

Lochte is only competing in one event (the men's 200 individual medley) and that goes down on Wednesday. Other than that, the two have plenty of time for a couple's vacation.

#Jeah.

EXCLUSIVE

0805-josh-and-amanda-the-bachelor-TMZ-01They're dropping like flies on "Bachelor in Paradise" -- Amanda Stanton and Josh Murray just couldn't resist blowing their secret and going public as a family ... cause they're getting married!

This is where we should probably say spoiler alert, but what the hell -- sources close to the couple tell us Josh ends up popping the question, and Amanda says yes. Only one episode of 'BiP' has aired this season -- and all participants are supposed to lay low ... so they don't ruin story lines.

We're told Josh and Amanda wanted to stay undercover until the finale, but just couldn't stay holed up because her 2 kiddos were getting anxious -- so they hit up the Orange County Fair Thursday night.

Josh is living with them in the OC, but our sources tell us they plan to buy a place in Atlanta.

We broke the story ... another 'BiP' couple, Lace and Grant, were spotted hanging out the day before the show even premiered.

Secrets, schmecrets.
