Chris Brown has touched down in Los Angeles ... looking like he lost about 90 pounds.
Brown announced this morning that he kicked his GF Karrueche Tran to the curb because he wants to concentrate on his "friendship" with Rihanna ... and by "friendship" he means he's going to take her to Bone Town.
As we previously reported, Karreuche -- like the rest of the planet -- believes Brown has been hookin' up with RiRi behind her back for a while. Duh.
Returns to L.A. Bar Scene
... without Jason Aldean

Brittany Kerr went back into the danger zone Tuesday night ... the center of the Hollywood bar scene ... only this time, the former "American Idol" contestant was spotted with a man who WASN'T wearing a wedding ring.
No word on who the mystery dude is ... or how they know each other ... but as long as he's not a married country singer with two kids at home, shouldn't be a problem.
Chris Brown & Rihanna
10/3/2012 11:16 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Chris Brown and Rihanna are barely trying to hide it anymore -- getting up close and personal at a NYC nightclub late Monday night ... then carousing at Rihanna's hotel for hours.
Chris and Rihanna hit up Griffin nightclub in the Meatpacking District -- we're told they arrived 5 minutes apart, and quickly ended up at the same table. Sources inside the club say the two were all over each other, and even disappeared together in a bathroom for 20 minutes.
People inside the club say the duo were kissing and hugging out in the open.
The two left the club separately -- but hours later, Chris was spotted leaving the Gansevoort Hotel, where Rihanna was staying.
By the way, Tuesday afternoon, Chris' clueless GF Karrueche tweeted that Chris sent her roses, a teddy bear and chocolates -- maybe a lame, "I'm sorry."
So we gotta ask ...

Minka Kelly and Chris Evans proved they're more than just friends by swapping spit outside a restaurant in Studio City on Monday.
The sexy couple -- who dated briefly in 2007 -- have been spotted hanging out together in recent weeks, but this is the first time they've gotten hot and heavy in public.
Prior to hooking up with Captain America, 32-year-old Minka broke up with her longtime NY Yankee boyfriend Derek Jeter last year.
She really knows how to play the field.
Halle Berry and Gabriel
(Temporary) Truce at
the Pumpkin Patch
10/1/2012 3:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry have apparently put their custody war on hold ... to honor the sacred tradition of Halloween pumpkin carving.
The two were spotted at a pumpkin patch in Moorpark, CA today -- with Halle walking Nahla around the grounds to hunt for the perfect gourd.
According to multiple photo agencies, both Halle and Gabriel were at the patch AT THE SAME TIME ... however, we have yet to see a shot of the battling exes in the same frame.
As we previously reported, Halle is trying to convince a judge to let her move to France with Nahla -- with Gabriel fighting tooth and nail -- but it's clear Halle ain't going anywhere 'til after Halloween.
Shuts Down Twitter Page
'Whore, Skank, Tramp'
10/1/2012 10:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Former "American Idol" contestant Brittany Kerr has shut down her Twitter page ... after a gang of angry Jason Aldean fans BLASTED the singer online -- calling her everything from a "skank" to a "homewrecking whore."
The cyber-hate came flooding in after TMZ posted the pics of Aldean -- a huge country singer who happens to be MARRIED -- putting the moves on Kerr at a crowded bar on the Sunset Strip.
Sources connected to Kerr tell us ... she had NO IDEA Aldean was married ... and if she would have known, she would have shut the whole thing down from the start.
Even though Kerr didn't go home with Aldean, people attacked her online ... writing terrible things on her Facebook page including:
"Disgusting homewrecking tramp!"
"what is wrong with you taking advantage of a married man while he was drinking."
For the record, people have ripped Aldean on his Facebook page too. He has since apologized, chalking the whole thing up to a bad drunken decision.
We reached out to Kerr -- so far, no comment.
I Got to See My Boys!

Paul Nassif got to spend Saturday with his three sons ... taking them out for pizza in Bev Hills.
As TMZ first reported, a judge granted Nassif the visit Wednesday after he showed up in court armed with a report from the Department of Children and Family Services saying there was no proof he abused the kids -- despite allegations from his estranged wife, Adrienne Maloof.
The judge ordered a court-appointed monitor be present during the visit ... and we're guessing he's the conspicuous guy with the bag.
Nassif and Maloof are due back in court October 9 to settle their custody dispute ... maybe.

Waving the Rainbow Flag

Paris Hilton gave a subtle apology to the gay community yesterday in Hawaii by sporting a bag adorned with a rainbow flag on it while waiting for her flight back to Los Angeles.
Paris issued a mea culpa last week after a recording was released in which Paris could be heard saying gay men are "disgusting" and that "most of them probably have AIDS."
The heiress apologized online, posting a letter on GLAAD's website, where she said, "Gay people are the strongest and most inspiring people I know."
Deserves a Paddling

Mario Lopez's 2-week wife Ali Landry is an expert on her knees, easily keeping her balance during a smoking hot paddle boarding session in Hawaii earlier today.
In case you forgot, Mario and Ali were married on April 24th, 2004. Their marriage was annulled two weeks later.
Clearly, the 39-year-old model has since gone two pieces.
Arnold's Secret Son
Walking (Very) Tall
Before Dad's Book Release
9/28/2012 9:40 AM PDT BY Johnny Lopez
With Arnold Schwarzenegger's tell-all autobiography about to come out, it seems only fitting that his all growed-up love child Joseph Baena and his baby mama/former maid Mildred Baena would be spotted out in Bakersfield, CA on Thursday.
As we reported earlier, Arnold says his affair with Mildred was the "stupidest thing" he did during his marriage to Maria Shriver and revealed he has not shown her the book yet either.
Fun fact: Schwarzenegger's book comes out on Monday ... the day before Joseph's 15th birthday.
Wonder what Arnold is getting him for a gift.
Tries Being Faithful
9/28/2012 8:40 AM PDT BY Johnny Lopez
She got caught cheating on Robert Pattinson, but philandering girlfriend Kristen Stewart may have been trying to send some sorta mixed message by hitting up a restaurant in Paris on Thursday named La Fidelite ... which in English -- believe it or not -- means "fidelity."
Kristen can't take back what she did, but she can try and eat her words.

Mel Gibson suffered a wardrobe malfunction and accidentally flashed one of his supple man boobs while out walking around Malibu on Wednesday.
Even the King of Malibu has a nip slip every now and then.
