'The Bachelorette' Huge Spoiler Alert! Becca's Already On a Hometown Date

4/26/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"The Bachelorette" star Becca Kufrin let a big cat out of the bag Tuesday afternoon when she was spotted shooting for the show in the hometown of one of her hopeful suitors.

This is where we tell ya ... SPOILER ALERT, SPOILER ALERT!!!!

Yes, you've seen the pic, but if you don't wanna know what happened with the lucky guy, look away now.

We'll say this ... Becca looked real cozy strolling through the streets of Manteca, CA with him.

His name is Garrett Yrigoyen, and if he's made it all the way to a hometown date, she's gotta be into him. The show always tags along when the 'Bachelorette' goes to her 4 finalists' hometowns. 

We're told cameras were following as the couple strolled through downtown and hit up the history museum and even met the mayor -- so, it wasn't much of a secret around town. There was even a welcome sign for them hanging at the local Transit Center. 

The show won't air 'til later this year, and ABC hasn't officially announced all the contestants, yet, so ... clearly, Garrett is one to watch. 

Prince Ex-Wife Slams Sinead's Claims ... He's Not a Woman Beater!!!

4/25/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Prince's ex-wife doesn't buy Sinead O'Connor's claims he was violent toward women and abused hard drugs ... because she never saw a shred of evidence to support that.

Mayte Garcia -- who was married to Prince from 1996 to 2000 -- tells TMZ he was never violent with her and she never witnessed him being violent with anyone ... man or woman. She also says he didn't do hard drugs while they were together, and she only saw him drunk once.

Garcia's very skeptical of Sinead's self-proclaimed close relationship with Prince ... telling us she seriously doubts she could have known more than she did.

Mayte has a problem with the timing of Sinead's allegations, too ... because Prince wasn't alive to defend himself.

Garcia admits she found the reports of Prince's deadly pill stash shocking and heartbreaking, because she knew him for years and didn't see anything like that.

But as for O'Connor's most outrageous claim -- that Prince was into devil worship -- Garcia simply calls BS. She says he was spiritual and religious, but any claims of him doing something sinister are "ridiculously wrong" ... adding, "I strongly deny that in his honor."

Melania to Prez Trump Fine, I'll Hold Your Hand in Public!! But, I Ain't Gonna Be Happy

4/25/2018 6:40 AM PDT

Melania Trump pulled a France -- appropriately before her first State dinner -- and fully surrendered her right hand to President Trump. Vive la France!

The First Lady and POTUS posed for pics Tuesday night before breaking baguettes with French Prez Macron and his wife at the White House. Unlike earlier in the day, the Prez and Melania got a grip ... of each other's hands.

When the Macrons arrived, Melania had subtly -- and hilariously -- shunned Trump's attempts to hold her hand.

She might not have been smiling Tuesday night, but at least they reached an accord -- which apparently requires him to gush over Melania's dinner on Twitter.

We're kidding. We're sure he means it.

See, Trump can reach across the aisle, if absolutely necessary.

Derek Fisher Proposes to Gloria Govan ... She Said 'Yes!'

4/24/2018 10:03 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

11:48 AM PT -- Matt Barnes has weighed in on the engagement ... saying he's happy for EVERYONE involved!

"I have two beautiful boys from my ex we are both focussing on co-parenting & providing the best atmosphere & childhood for them," Barnes said ... "They love him, so I love it.

"Despite not seeing eye to eye initially w Derek he & I are on the same page & communicate weekly about Isaiah and Carter."

"With that being said congrats on the engagement!"

Good news for Derek Fisher ... the ex-NBA star popped the question to his girlfriend, Gloria Govan -- AND SHE SAID, "YES!"

We've learned ... 43-year-old Fisher got down on one knee during a small shindig at their Los Angeles-area home on April 7, surrounded by their kids and Gloria's nephew. 

Derek had some of Gloria's friends take her out during the day so he could decorate the house while she was gone ... candles, flower petals ... it was romantic!

And yeah ... the ring's pretty big. We got a photo and you can see the diamond is the size of her knuckle!

Derek and Gloria have been dating since 2015. Both were previously married but have since divorced their significant others. 

Of course, Gloria was married to Matt Barnes -- which caused some some legendary drama between Derek and his ex-Lakers teammate. But Barnes recently said the beef is over and the two are now cool. 

No word on when the two plan on officially tying the knot -- it's still early though. 

Congrats!!! 

Donald Trump Attempt to Hold Melania's Hand Is Sad ...

4/24/2018 9:31 AM PDT

Donald Trump really wanted to get Melania to hold his hand at a White House event honoring French President Emmanuel Macron ... but man, he had to work for it. 

Trump was standing next to his wife in the Rose Garden when he tried to slickly coax her hand into his ... but what ensued was a painfully long battle of wills.

It's clear Melania was trying to avoid the hand-hold ... but Trump and his pinky finger were persistent ... eventually wearing down her defense until she submitted. 

True love, huh?

Madonna Loses Lawsuit Over Tupac Letter Auction ...

4/23/2018 8:39 AM PDT
Breaking News

1:00 PM PT -- The auction house just announced they'll start the auction in July. Madonna won't be able to put the brakes on the sale of an old jailhouse letter from Tupac that's being auctioned off because of a release she signed almost 15 years ago ... TMZ has learned. 

A judge has thrown out Madonna's lawsuit against Darlene Lutz, Madge's old pal and art consultant, saying a release she signed back in 2004 means she couldn't sue over the sale of the letter.

According to the judge's order, Lutz had received several items over her two-decade-long relationship with Madonna, and when they ended things Darlene got to keep some stuff.

The judge's view was that if Madonna didn't want the Tupac letter to be sold, she should've never signed the release. 

Madonna claimed that she never knew Darlene even had possession of the letter, which was deeply personal since Tupac touched on their breakup.

4/20/2018 3:39 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Mel B says Stephen Belafonte is trying to pull a fast one by making it look like he decided to get their daughter into therapy, and she adds his brainwashing allegations are desperate.

According to new legal docs ... Mel B says she reached out to Stephen in late 2017 to get counseling for their 6-year-old daughter, Madison. Instead of agreeing and helping out, Mel claims Stephen waited a few months to file docs in which he accuses her of brainwashing Madison.

In her docs, Mel says therapy for their daughter was her idea all along -- so, she's not opposed to it. In fact, she even has suggestions for possible doctors for Madison to see.

As for Belafonte's brainwashing allegations -- Mel B says they're all nonsense ... and he has absolutely no evidence to support his claims Madison is acting differently toward him. 

Mel adds, they already have a custody plan in place and they should stick to it, because she's done nothing to alienate their daughter from him.

Nick Gordon's been officially charged for breaking the conditions of his bond by hanging out with his girlfriend ... after he'd been arrested for hitting her.

Nick will have to be back in court next month to face the charge.

As far as we know, he and Laura are still together.
