David Spade

I'm Ridin' Dirty for Six Figures

Scores Classic Movie Car

1/27/2015 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

David Spade Joe Dirt CarDavid Spade has gained a ton of muscle ... under the hood of the nearly million dollar '69 Dodge Daytona he just snagged. 

David fell so hard for the model he drove in "Joe Dirt" and its upcoming sequel ... that he bid $900K on a sick fully-restored version of the Hemi-powered ride at Mecum Auctions last Friday.

The 426-hp copper-colored whip has had several other high profile owners ... like former NFL star Kevin Greene.

The real question: where's Spade gonna put the "Cowboy's Butts Drive Me Nuts!" bumper sticker?

 put hundreds of screaming mustached women on their knees ... just by showing up.

No, it's not a kinky Hollywood sex party ... hundreds of excited Japanese fans greeted Depp and fiancee Amber Heard at the Haneda International Airport in Tokyo Monday morning after arriving in town to promote his latest film, "Mortdecai."
 
The screaming fans let him know how glad they were to see him by sporting the same mustache he dons in the film ... but turns out they were just as pumped for him as they were for Heard.

Dermot Mulroney's Wife

Ditches Maiden Name ...

But Still Not Taking His

1/26/2015 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0123-dermot-mulroney-wife-name-change-tmz-getty-01
Dermot Mulroney's wife desperately wants to go French -- even though her husband is Irish-American -- and she's filing legal papers to do it.

The "My Best Friend's Wedding" star has been married to Tharita Cutulle since 2008, but she's never changed her name. According to docs, she's finally ready to drop her unique name and switch -- not to Mulroney ... but to Prima Apollinaare.

As for why she's going from sounding like the scientific name for a fish ... to a fancy pasta? Maybe she's a theater buff. Guillaume Apollinaire was a famous French poet and playwright in the early 1900s. 

Or maybe she digs Apollonia from "Purple Rain." 'Memba her?

Courtney Love

Reunites With Daughter

After 5 Bitter Years

1/25/2015 10:16 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0125-courtney-love-frances-cobain-hug-GETTY-01Courtney Love reunited with her daughter Frances Bean Cobain ... apparently closing the book on a feud that's been raging for years.

Love and Bean hugged it out Saturday at the Sundance premiere of "Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck" ... the first time they've been seen together in more than 5 years.

Remember, Courtney lost legal control over then 17 year-old Frances in 2009.  In 2012, Love accused ex Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl of hitting on Bean.  

The 22 year-old blasted her mom over the allegation ... urging Twitter to ban her mom from the site.

Nothing is forever ... and that can be a good thing.

1/25/2015 7:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

012515_randall_launchThe guy who played Kim Jong-Un in the "The Interview" won't be watching basketball games with Dennis Rodman in the DPRK anytime soon.

"Fresh Off the Boat" star Randall Park was leaving Chateau Saturday night when he talked to our photog about Kim Jong Un and whether his role has made him less or more popular with the ladies.

Asfor whether he'd accept an invite from KJU to visit North Korea?  Park's no dummy.

012415_ryan_guzman_launchIf Jennifer Lopez is looking for a new man, it sounds like she could set her sites on the dude she gets hot and heavy with in "Boy Next Door" -- cause he's a big fan.

Ryan Guzman was leaving the Palm Friday night when he told us JLo is by far the best kiss he's had on screen ... even though she only ranked him #2 during a recent interview.

The 27 year-old actor shouldn't fret about his runner up position ... Lopez put him above Clooney.

Stir Fried Date ...

Smells and Looks Official

EXCLUSIVE

012315_selena_and_zedd_launch_v5Most people don't fly cross country to take "a friend" out to eat -- so Selena Gomez and Zedd are looking more like an official couple after their afternoon rendezvous in Atlanta.

Our restaurant sources tell TMZ ... Selena and Zedd were hugging and kissing while eating at Benihana Friday. She's in town shooting a movie -- and the only reason he'd be there is, well ... her.

They've been a rumored couple since they hit a bunch of Golden Globes parties together -- but then SG was spotted at dinner with her on/off/on BF Justin Bieber.

Bottom line? Selena's love life is tricky business ... but Zedd doesn't seem to care.

'12 Years a Slave' Lawsuit

Composer Claims

Hans Zimmer Ripped Him Off

1/23/2015 1:22 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

012315_hans_zimmer_solomon_launch_v2

"12 Years a Slave" may have shamelessly ripped off "Desperate Housewives" ... if you believe a new lawsuit.

Famed composer Hans Zimmer is the culprit ... so claims the guy who composed the song for that Housewives show.

Richard Friedman claims in 2004 he composed "To Our Fallen," which appeared on the ABC show. He says in his lawsuit his song was enhanced in Zimmer's studio. Friedman claims it's no coincidence that in 2013 Zimmer's signature song in "12 Years" was eerily similar to his tune.

 

The allegation is simple ... Zimmer and company had access to his song and ripped him off.

Friedman is suing Zimmer, Fox, Sony and Brad Pitt's Plan B Entertainment ... and he wants a piece of the pie.

We reached out to Zimmer's people ... so far no comment.
