Ariana Grande & Pete Davidson Living Large Together in NYC

6/20/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson have been moving fast since they hooked up, and now it's onward and upward in the form of a super deluxe apartment in the sky.

The newly engaged couple just moved into a $16 MILLION apartment in Manhattan's Chelsea neighborhood ... it's a new luxury complex designed by famed architect Zaha Hadid.

Their unit is more than 4,000 sq. ft. with 5 beds and 4.5 baths, and features amazing views of the city and the Empire State Building. The complex has a fitness center, a 75-foot sky lit pool, a private IMAX theater ... and Sting as their neighbor. 

It's unclear if Pete and Ariana dropped a ton of cash to buy the place or if they're just renting, but all signs point to a move over the weekend when she shared a SpongeBob meme with the caption, "Us in our new apartment with no furniture 1 speaker and red vines."

As we reported ... they were arm-in-arm Monday in NYC while out furniture shopping for their new digs, as she flaunted a huge rock on her finger.

Chris Hardwick Text Messages with Chloe She Tried in Vain to Reconcile

6/19/2018 10:45 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Chris Hardwick severed ties with Chloe Dykstra in a lengthy text chronicling major issues in their relationship, and she pleaded to talk to him afterward to no avail ... even months later.

According to the text messages -- obtained by TMZ -- Chris calls out Chloe for cheating on him with a man named Sam, saying it's "the worst thing anyone has ever done to me." Chris claims Chloe led him to believe she wanted to get back together after they broke up ... but never stopped seeing Sam.

Hardwick more or less tells Dykstra his long text message will be the last time he talks to her and declares their relationship is over, and she then sends several texts begging to talk, saying, "I will always love you."

According to the text thread, Chloe reached out to Chris 7 months later in an apparent attempt to make up. Sources close to Chris say it's hard to believe Chloe would try for months to get back with him if she was being emotionally and sexually abused, as she claimed last week.

As we reported ... Hardwick denied her allegation of sexual abuse and said their breakup after a 3-year relationship was the result of her cheating.

We reached out to Chloe ... so far, no word back.

Ariana Grande & Pete Davidson Nothing to See Here ... Except This Giant Rock on Her Hand!!

6/19/2018 9:06 AM PDT

Pete Davidson and Ariana Grande are battling over who's better at showing off -- Pete proudly parading around his smoking hot fiancée, or Ariana flaunting her massive engagement ring.

Pete and Ariana were arm-in-arm Monday in NYC -- shopping for furniture, btw -- and she made sure to keep her hand at the perfect tilt for photogs. Pretty obvious, she's thrilled with Pete's choice of ring.

TMZ broke the story ... Pete dropped $93k for the 3.03 carat diamond. As they say ... if ya got it, flaunt it -- especially when ya got 3 carats of it!

As for the furniture shopping? Ariana made it seem like they've already moved in together. We'd say that's awfully quick, but remember ... quick is how these 2 operate.

Paris Hilton Lindsay Who? She's NOT on My Guest List

6/19/2018 6:47 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Paris Hilton made it clear ... she can't stand Lindsay Lohan, and her former friend is persona non grata at Paris' upcoming wedding.

We got Paris Monday at LAX, and she made it clear ... certain feuds are dead and buried while others are very much alive and well. She had nothing but praise for Kim Kardashian, who Paris calls a miracle worker for getting Alice Johnson sprung from prison.

Paris claims she has a life compass which draws her to people who enrich her life and keeps her from those who live in darkness ... it's abundantly clear where Lindsay fits in.

As for Lindsay ... well, remember the famous TMZ clip with Paris and Brandon Davis. The sentiment remains the same 12 years later.

Chris Pratt Looks Smitten With Katherine Schwarzenegger!!

EXCLUSIVE

Chris Pratt is apparently a hopeless romantic, who really knows how to make a girl laugh -- just ask Katherine Schwarzenegger!!

Chris was spotted on a picnic date Sunday with Arnold and Maria's 28-year-old daughter. The duo's outing went down up in Santa Barbara, and Chris was a total gentleman -- picking up Katherine at her place and driving her up the coast.

We've seen Chris get flirty before, but this is the first time we've seen him on a full-fledged date since he filed for divorce from Anna Faris back in December.

While Katherine clearly has a Hollywood pedigree, she's not IN the biz. She's an interior designer and lifestyle blogger.

Whatever their conversation was during the date ... they both look impressed and happy.

Antonio Sabato Jr. is officially a single man, just in time to hit the Congressional campaign trail.

According to the docs, the former soap star and his ex, Cheryl Marie, reached an agreement on their divorce back on December 31, 2017. Happy new year, indeed. However, it took several months for the judge to sign off.

The exes have joint legal and physical custody of their 7-year-old son, Antonio III. As for property, he gets the house and a 2015 Fiat. They both agreed to return the Maserati they were leasing.

Antonio has to pay child and spousal support, though it's light for a Hollywood divorce. He'll fork over $533 a month for his kid. Cheryl gets $350 monthly in alimony, but only until April 2019. They were only married for 5 years.

He also has to pay her $10k for attorney fees, and agree not to take any drugs without a valid prescription. As we reported, Cheryl claimed Antonio abused prescription drugs, and was worried about their son's safety. Sabato admitted issues with sleeping pills, but told us he's an outspoken advocate on fighting addiction.

He'll be the Republican candidate for California's 26th District, come November.

EXCLUSIVE

Pete Davidson was technically single when he started dating Ariana Grande ... TECHNICALLY, but "Friends" fans might not agree.

Sources close to the newly engaged couple say Pete and his ex-gf, Cazzie David, were "on a break" in early May -- but not necessarily broken up for good -- when his relationship with Ariana sparked. But they hit if off, and it quickly became clear Pete was serious about moving on with Ariana.

The good news -- it seems all parties involved are happy with the end result. As we reported, Cazzie's not upset or dwelling on her ex's quick rebound. Hey, if it's good enough for Ross and Rachel.

As for Ariana and Pete -- they're still in full PDA mode with Davidson posting a pic wrapped up with his fiancee, captioned ... "u know what you’d dream it be like ? it’s better than that."

Iman Shumpert Not Releasing Music With Teyana ... Here's Why

6/17/2018 12:15 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Iman Shumpert says he doesn't need his wife's help with his rap career ... 'cause releasing songs with Teyana Taylor will only HURT his music goals!!

The NBA star told us he takes his rap seriously ... and if he blows up 'cause of songs he released with his famous boo -- he says it just wouldn't feel right.

"I could use my wife, but it's just I would rather people connect with me in certain ways," Iman told TMZ Sports at LAX this week.

Don't get it twisted ... Shump's got songs with Teyana -- and he says he has even more with celebs that would skyrocket his career.

But building a following that doesn't revolve around hoops or the big-name people he knows is something he takes seriously.

So, sorry, Teyana ... that collab looks like it's gonna be on ice for another minute.

Chris Hardwick Shelved by AMC, Dropped from Kaaboo Fest After Ex-GF's Sexual Abuse Claim

6/16/2018 10:20 AM PDT
Breaking News

12:10 PM PT -- AMC Networks says Hardwick's show, "Talking with Chris Hardwick," will not air while it assesses the situation, and he is stepping aside from moderating planned AMC and BBC America panels at Comic-Con in San Diego next month.

AMC adds ... "We have had a positive working relationship with Chris Hardwick for many years. We take the troubling allegations that surfaced yesterday very seriously."

Chris Hardwick is losing another gig in the wake of his ex girlfriend, Chloe Dykstra, claiming he emotionally and sexually abused her.

The Kaaboo Festival in Del Mar, CA says it's pulled Hardwick out of the lineup for this year. The annual music and comedy event doesn't go down until September, but organizers already made up their mind -- Hardwick will not perform his comedy routine, and a replacement act is TBA. 

As we reported ... Nerdist scrubbed all of Hardwick's content on Friday, hours after Chloe posted an emotionally charged essay with details of the alleged abuse. She claims Hardwick forced her to have sex and made her live under strict rules.

However, Chris denies ever sexually assaulting her, and adds they only broke up because she cheated on him.

Jeremy Meeks Paying His Ex 6 Figures ... Gets Custody, Moving Son to U.K.

6/16/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jeremy Meeks is gonna have his own modern family after striking a deal with his ex-wife that gives him primary custody of their 9-year-old son, and gives her a hefty sum of money ... TMZ has learned. 

Sources tell us the "hot felon" -- turned "still-hot ex-felon" -- and Melissa Meeks reached the agreement shortly after their divorce was finalized earlier this month. Under the terms, we're told, Jeremy gets primary physical custody of Jeremy Jr. and Melissa will get a check ... somewhere in the 6-figure range. 

As we reported, Jeremy and Melissa's original divorce deal had her getting primary physical custody with a 70/30 split in time with each parent. They've flipped that under the new deal and, starting this summer, Jr. will be living in the U.K. with Dad and his gf, Chloe Green.

We're told Jeremy and Chloe have already enrolled Jr. in a private school he'll begin attending in the fall.

The new arrangement allows Jeremy to merge both of his families. Remember, he and Chloe -- the Topshop heiress -- just had a baby of their own.

Now, little Jayden Meeks-Green will grow up with his big bro.

EXCLUSIVE

Is Rihanna missing out by not dating Joel Embiid? He seems to think so. 

The following is a direct quote: 

"I don't want to talk about Rihanna but, you know, I feel like every girl in the world should, you know, taste the process and see what the process is like."

Gotta love a man with confidence. 

Remember, Embiid tried to shoot his shot at Rihanna back in the day, but it didn't quite work out for the young NBA star. 

So, when we saw him out in Bev Hills the other day, we asked him about it -- and he made it clear he's moving on ... to EVERY OTHER WOMAN ON EARTH!

"Every girl in the world is missing out. You know you got to taste the process, you gotta see what the process is like."

Who's hungry?

Chris Hardwick Nerdist Site Cuts All Ties Following Sexual Abuse Allegations by Ex-GF

6/15/2018 11:51 AM PDT

Chris Hardwick's been scrubbed from the Nerdist website he founded after accusations of emotional and sexual abuse by his ex-girlfriend, Chloe Dykstra, seem to clearly implicate him.

Legendary Entertainment removed all references to Hardwick on the site Friday and says he no longer has any affiliation with the company since his contract expired in 2017.

This comes on the heels of an explosive essay by Dykstra -- who dated Hardwick from 2012 to 2014 -- in which she reveals she was forced to have sex with and follow strict rules made by a man 20 years older than her with whom she was in a relationship.

She does not name Hardwick, but says this man went from being a "podcaster to a powerhouse CEO of his own company." Hardwick is almost 20 years older than Dykstra and is the founder of Nerdist Industries ... and the timeline laid out in her essay also matched up with her relationship with him.

Dykstra alleges the man she dated didn't allow her to go out at night without him, didn't allow her to have male friends and told her she couldn't drink because he was sober. She says, "I would try to sleep in as late as possible so my days were shorter. I stopped listening to music entirely. I ceased to be. I was an ex-person."

In her essay, Dykstra also claims she was regularly pressured into sex against her will for fear of upsetting or losing the man, and after she finally left him ... her career was railroaded by him and she was blacklisted at age 25.

Hardwick has yet to respond, but when we talked to him in October about the Harvey Weinstein scandal ... he told us women should go to the internet and speak up, saying "social media's really empowered people to not be victims anymore."

Jennie Garth Divorce Should be Simple We Got a Prenup!!!

6/15/2018 11:57 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jennie Garth doesn't seem like she wants to draw out her divorce, so it's convenient she and her estranged hubby signed a prenup ... according to new legal docs anyway.

The former '90210' star claims she and Dave Abrams agreed to a prenup before they wed in July 2015, so she wants it to be followed during their divorce proceedings.

Garth agrees on their date of separation -- August 29, 2017 -- and says she wants to change her name back. The ex-couple doesn't have any kids together.

We broke the story -- Abrams filed for divorce in April, which would put the kibosh on Garth's third marriage -- but he never mentioned the prenup.
