Playboy Mansion Hosting Tarantino's 'Once Upon a Time' Party After Next Year's Premiere

9/14/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Quentin Tarantino will host his "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" premiere party at the Playboy Mansion -- this after recently filming some scenes there ... TMZ has learned.

QT and co. are going to have their after-party at Hugh Hefner's romping grounds following the premiere of his highly anticipated flick -- which chronicles the Manson murders. While a date for the party hasn't been set quite yet, we're told it has gotten the green light for whenever the film drops ... which, for now, is slated for summer 2019.

Tarantino and his crew were seen at the Playboy Mansion last week, where they filmed for 3 days. The current owner of the house, Daren Metropoulos, says ... "After Quentin reached out to me and I spent some time understanding his vision for the film, I knew there was a special opportunity to collaborate together and feature the mansion in this thrilling project."

He added ... "The timing was excellent as the property has already begun to transform back to its original grandeur and has never looked more impressive."

Tarantino's got history with the Playboy Mansion. He hosted his "Kill Bill: Vol. 1" video release party there in 2004. Looks like he's circling back with the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, Al Pacino and other big stars that've been cast.

The premiere party appears to be one of the first major A-list events to be held at the mansion since Hugh Hefner's death late last year and since Daren bought the place for $100 million about a year prior. Most recently, he was cleared to undergo major repairs ahead of a potential historic monument designation. 

The jury's still out on whether the mansion will get that status. 

Ben Affleck Dinner Date with Playboy Model ... Where's Lindsay???

8/17/2018 10:20 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

Ben Affleck's latest sighting shows all the signs of a bachelor lifestyle, which has us wondering ... has he broken up with GF Lindsay Shookus?

Ben was spotted Thursday night leaving Nobu Malibu rocking a very casual single-guy look -- loose jeans, jacket, t-shirt with a cig in hand -- after having dinner with a very hot blonde who's not Lindsay.

The chick is Playboy's Miss May 2018, Shauna Sexton.

It's interesting -- Affleck celebrated his bday Wednesday with his kids, and had a dinner date with Shauna last night ... but no sign of any celebrating with Shookus.

Ben and Lindsay haven't been photographed together in nearly a month. And, what's also interesting ... there was a moving van in front of Ben's home on August 9. We don't know if someone was moving in or moving out of his $19 million Pacific Palisades mansion.

We reached out to the "Justice League" star to see if perhaps Batman went through a pre-birthday breakup ... so far, no word back. 

Playmate Amy Lee Summers Bustin' Out of Her Bikini ... No, For Reals

5/4/2018 10:31 AM PDT

New Zealand model and Playboy Playmate Amy Lee Summers brought new meaning to the ol' adage, "1 if by land, 2 if by sea," when she spilled out of her top in the SoCal surf.

Amy Lee was frolicking through Malibu Thursday for a photo shoot when she suffered the nip slip, but recovered like a pro. She had more luck securing her bikini bottoms -- they stayed on. Barely.

Even while she was on dry land, she found a way to end up all wet.

Check out the gallery ... summer's definitely coming.

Model Khloe Terae Bikini Car Wash ... Ready to Service!

5/2/2018 7:59 AM PDT

Jeep Wranglers don't have your standard trunk, but that didn't stop Playboy model Khloe Terae from putting hers all over one ... and in nothing but a red hot string bikini!

Khloe wiped down the custom job -- it's a Jeep Wrangler JK -- for a photo shoot at DCD Customs in SoCal ... and there's a lot more to these pics than just her fat tires.

The last Wrangler JK rolled off the assembly line in Ohio last week, so there's extra value in this 4X4 ... and not just because Khloe, who's a a big fan of water, gave it a rub down.

And that's your T&A -- tires and ass -- bonus info. Enjoy!

Karen McDougal Settles National Enquirer Suit ... Free to Cash in on Trump!!!

4/18/2018 3:05 PM PDT
Breaking News

Ex-Playmate Karen McDougal is clear to spill the beans about her alleged affair with Donald Trump ... and, perhaps most importantly to her, make a ton o' money off it.

McDougal had sued the National Enquirer's parent company, American Media, over a non-disclosure agreement she signed with them in 2016. She got $150k and some promotional perks, and the Enquirer got her exclusive story about the 2006 affair with Trump. She sued to get out of the deal.

Well, they reached a settlement ... according to the New York Times, and is now allowed to talk all she wants about her Trump relationship. You'll recall, McDougal sat down with Anderson Cooper last month for a CNN special.

So, why does the settlement matter? It's pretty clear based on the terms, which include American Media getting $75k of any future profits Karen makes off selling the Trump story.

Start the countdown to Karen's tell-all book hitting stores -- but ya gotta wonder what's left for her to reveal. The NYT says she also gets to keep her $150k fee.

Playmate Jayde Nicole Defends Florida Teen ... Free The Nipple! Everyone Has 'Em!

4/12/2018 7:14 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Former Playmate Jayde Nicole doesn't think it's fair that men can show their nipples and women can't in public, and thinks it's time to once and for all free the nipple ... which she did twice for our camera guy. 

We got Brody Jenner's ex-gf leaving Warwick in Hollywood with a friend Wednesday night and asked her about the 17-year-old in Florida who was forced to cover her nipples with Band-Aids when she came to school without a bra on under her shirt.

First, Jayde and her pal dropped a few jewels about ending the nipple double standard ... and then Jayde dropped her top.

This rebellion WILL be televised.

Kendra Wilkinson & Hank Baskett Reunite Days After Divorce Filing ... For Daughter's Soccer Game

4/8/2018 3:16 PM PDT

 

Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett aren't letting their pending divorce get in the way of their kids -- 'cause the two of them reunited just days after she filed for divorce.

Kendra and Hank both attended their 3-year-old daughter Alijah's soccer game Sunday, which Kendra documented on social media. At one point she points the camera at her estranged hubby, who's almost within arm's reach, standing next to their kid.

The two parents even shouted words of encouragement to Alijah as she dribbled around on the field. It would seem, based on this video, they're on the same team when it comes to their little ones, even in the face of a very public breakup and eventual divorce filing. 

We broke the story ... Kendra officially filed for divorce from Hank Friday, citing irreconcilable differences. She's seeking joint legal and physical custody of their two kids. 

Today is the last day of my marriage to this beautiful man. I will forever love Hank and be open but for now we have chosen to go our own ways. I’m beyond sad and heartbroken because i did believe in forever, that’s why i said yes but unfortunately too much fear has gotten in the way. We are both amazing parents and our kids will be happy n never know the difference other than seeing mama smile. Sometimes love looks funny. We are told to make sacrifices in life if it’s true love well in this case it’s me. I want to see happy Hank again... i miss that. Marriage was just a piece of paper and a piece of jewelry but our hearts will always be real. U will prob see us together a lot but it’s because there’s no hate. Love wins in this case it’s just looks a little funny. Thank you Hank for a beautiful 8 years of marriage and 2 beautiful kids. I feel so thankful and blessed. ❤️

Kendra became quite emotional in the days leading up to her filing, saying she loved Hank but that she "did everything I could." They got married in 2009. 

Kendra Wilkinson Confirms Split With Hank Baskett In Emotional Video

4/2/2018 11:44 AM PDT

Kendra Wilkinson says she and NFL star husband Hank Baskett are officially no more in an emotional video.

Wilkinson posted several videos Monday after rumors swirled in recent months of ongoing issues in their relationship that signaled a split was imminent. 

She also broke down in tears on video recounting her time with Hank, saying she'll always love him and, "I did everything I could."

She and Hank have 2 kids together -- 8-year-old Hank IV, and 3-year-old Alijah. The couple got hitched in 2009 at the Playboy Mansion -- with Hugh Hefner and her other 'Girls Next Door' castmates in attendance. When we saw Kendra last week in Calabasas, she tried to keep a positive outlook ... but she was, pretty obviously, stressed. 

Hank was allegedly involved in a 2014 affair with a transgender model while Kendra was 8 months pregnant. Word is ... the scandal dogged their relationship until the end.

Aubrey O'Day Find the Easter Egg

4/1/2018 11:41 AM PDT

Aubrey O'Day's on a roll for Easter, but it ain't like the one that's happening at the White House this week ... not even close, actually. You seeing this, DTJ?

Aubrey posted a revealing photo Sunday just in time for Easter, which shows her bottomless and bunny-ed out, cottontail and all. She captioned the pic "egg hunt #happyeaster" ... and at first glance, you might not even realize she's surrounded by 'em. 

As we reported ... the former Playboy model and singer has been mum on her alleged 2012 affair with Donald Trump Jr. in the wake of his pending divorce with his wife, Vanessa -- at least publicly she has.

However, she's been telling friends that she absolutely hooked up with him post-"Celebrity Apprentice," but that it didn't have anything to do with his and Vanessa's split. 

Meanwhile, Trump Jr.'s been spotted being civil with his estranged spouse lately -- hanging out with her and their kids for Spring Break at Mar-a-Lago just a week ago.

He hasn't uttered a peep about Aubrey so far, but we imagine it'll be hard for him to ignore her now. 

Ex-Playboy PMOY Sues for Right to Speak About Alleged Trump Affair

3/20/2018 12:13 PM PDT

Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal is taking a page out of Stormy Daniels' playbook -- suing to throw out a 2016 legal agreement that bars her from speaking about an alleged tryst with Donald Trump.

The 1998 Playmate of the Year is going after American Media Inc. -- which owns The National Enquirer -- claiming she was misled about the company's deal to pay her for her story.

According to the docs ... McDougal didn't seek "hush money" from Trump, but rather thought she was selling her story to the Enquirer for $100k and future appearances in the publication. Instead, she claims her story was buried ... and she didn't get the publicity she was promised.

McDougal claims in the docs that Trump's lawyer, Michael Cohen, was secretly involved with AMI in the effort to pay her off and shut her up ... because the head of the company, David Pecker, is friends with Trump and he had just secured the Republican nomination.

According to the suit ... McDougal's also being threatened with legal action and monetary damages if she talks about her alleged affair with Trump. As we reported, Trump's lawyer accused Stormy Daniels of such a breach of their contract ... and is going after her for $20 million.

Don McLean My GF Is Sweeter Than American Pie

3/15/2018 9:11 AM PDT

Don McLean's playing a young man's game, and dominating so hard ... he's already got a trophy. 

The legendary "American Pie" singer was leaving a hotel Wednesday in London with his much younger, and total smoke show of a Playboy model girlfriend ... Paris Dylan.

We'll do the math -- she's 24, he's 72, which adds up to ... get it, Donnie! 

He was dressed age-appropriately for an oldie, but goodie folk singer. Paris also appropriately rocked a curve-hugging dress. Even though she's posted pics with a shiny rock on her finger, Don's people have told us their thing is strictly professional.

Don didn't write the book of love ... but those legs gotta put his faith in God above ...

Playboy Mansion Not a Historic Landmark But, Will be Preserved

3/6/2018 9:23 AM PST

The Playboy Mansion will remain one of L.A.'s most iconic properties, but it will NOT be added to the city's list of historic cultural landmarks. 

The mansion's new billionaire owner, Daren Metropoulos, struck a deal with city officials in which the property will be permanently protected -- regardless of future owners -- but will not be subject to some of the normal restrictions attached to historic landmarks or monuments.

The new agreement locks in Daren's previous commitment to "not demolish the main residence and will repair the facade of the structure while maintaining its original condition as part of his extensive renovation."

Basically, the deal allows Daren to transform the mansion without a landmark status that would have added a lot of red tape. He says Hugh Hefner was aware of his renovation plans.

As we reported, Playboy sold the mansion to Metropoulos in 2016 for $100 million, and Hef was allowed to live in the crib until he died in September 2017.

Playboy Sued You Lied and Let My Nips Slip!!!

2/18/2018 12:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Playboy had the nerve to publish a model's nude photo on its cover after promising a bunch of times it wouldn't ... so claims a former Playmate model in a new lawsuit.

The model, filing the suit as Jane Doe, says she always wanted to appear in Playboy, but resisted because she'd never do it nude. But that all changed, she says, after Playboy, in 2015, announced it would no longer publish nude pics.

In the docs -- obtained by TMZ -- the model claims the photog, shooting for Playboy Romania, repeatedly promised pics showing her nipples or other private parts would be digitally edited. She says she was appalled when her nipples were fully exposed for Playboy Romania's cover in May 2016.  

Just a note ... she wanted to remain anonymous which is why she filed as Jane Doe, but she puts in the lawsuit she's on the cover of Playboy Romania's May 2016 cover. Hmmmm.

We've reached out to Playboy ... so far, no word back.
