Ariana Grande & Pete Davidson Mac Miller's Death Was Breaking Point

10/15/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson hit a life-changing fork in the road last month when Mac Miller died -- and his death was the tipping point that led to their split ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to AG and PD tell us ... Ariana was in an incredibly dark place following her ex-boyfriend's apparent fatal overdose. She didn't blame herself -- she feels she did everything she could to get him sober -- but it left her an emotional wreck.

In the aftermath of Mac's death, our sources say Ariana realized a couple of things -- she couldn't be fully invested in her relationship with Pete, and she had rushed into a looming marriage way too fast by getting engaged.

TMZ broke the story ... Ariana and Pete broke things off this weekend and called off their engagement.

She never signaled things were bad. In fact ... Ariana was at 'SNL' Saturday supporting Pete and nothing seemed amiss. Folks who were there say they looked all boo'd up, kissing and holding each other backstage. Something clearly snapped Sunday.

Neither have commented on the breakup.

Breaking News

"Bachelor in Paradise" star Jenna Cooper is not a lying cheater out for fame ... this according to a forensic report.

Jenna had the forensic company digitally scrub her iPhone, iPad and iCloud backup for alleged text messages she sent saying she only got engaged to fellow 'BiP' contestant Jordan Kimball on the show to build Hollywood connections. The alleged texts -- sent to another man -- also said Jordan didn't mean anything to her and she had an off-camera boyfriend.

Screenshots of the texts first surfaced in August after the 'BiP' finale ... but Jenna's been on the warpath to clear her name, even going so far as to hire the forensic company.

Jenna's rep, Steve Honig, tells TMZ ... "A comprehensive forensic examination of Jenna’s devices by an independent third-party expert has definitively confirmed none of the text messages in question came from Jenna's phone."

Jenna's been trying to get Jordan to admit the texts are fake and accused him of dramatically changing his demeanor toward her when the cameras stopped rolling. She claims Jordan "let it be known there was only room for one celebrity in the relationship."

Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson are dunzo as a couple, and their engagement has officially been called off ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to the former couple tell us AG and PD split this weekend, with both parties acknowledging that it simply was not the right time for their relationship to take off. We're told the two still have love for each other, but things are over romantically.

Ariana and Pete announced their surprise engagement earlier this year in June -- just a few weeks after they were reported to be just casually dating. TMZ broke the story ... Grande's engagement ring cost right around $100k.

Grande's recently expressed she was going through a rough patch, tweeting a lot of personal messages and saying she needs a break from the public spotlight and asking "can i pls have one okay day. just one. pls."

As for Davidson, he's continued to appear on SNL, even mentioning his former fiancee in a couple sketches. The last time we saw them together was just last week.

Our source says while things may be done for the couple for now, the two aren't ruling out the possibility of anything in the future.

Exclusive Details

Steve Levitan's bitter divorce has come to an end, and his ex-wife is walking away with a huge amount of money ... but so is he.

According to new legal docs obtained by TMZ ... Krista Levitan will get at least $4 MILLION a year in income from various projects -- including "Modern Family" -- but as long as that cash keeps flowing in ... he won't have to pay any spousal support.

But, that's not all -- Krista and Steve are also splitting several bank accounts worth tens of millions of dollars ... along with going 50/50 on various properties and cars.

Specifically, the docs say the 2 are to split the profits from the sale of their Santa Monica home ... which is worth about $40 million.

We broke the story ... Krista filed for divorce from Steve in 2016 after 23 years of marriage, and it appeared there was no prenup.

Things later took a nasty turn when Krista made claims of assault against Steve and tried to get a restraining order. A judge shot it down, but the divorce battle raged on.

It's all over now, though ... and both Steve and Krista have a lot of cash to remember each other by.

Fabolous Indicted for Domestic Violence on Emily B ... Incident Captured on Video

10/10/2018 9:35 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Fabolous is facing 4 felony charges related to his alleged assault on Emily B, the mother of his 2 children ... TMZ has learned.

A grand jury in New Jersey indicted the rapper last week on 1 count of domestic violence with significant bodily injury, 2 counts of threatening to kill and 1 count of possession of a weapon ... a pair of scissors.

Fabolous brandished the scissors in a video TMZ first posted back in March. The video shows him raging out at Emily and her father in the driveway of their Englewood, NJ home. During that altercation, he also threatened to kill her and other members of her family.

We broke the story ... Emily claims Fabolous repeatedly punched her in the face and knocked out her front teeth. According to the indictment, that went down on March 7 ... 3 weeks before the blowup in the driveway. 

All 4 charges are for third-degree crimes in NJ. Each charge can bring up to 5 years in prison.

It's worth noting, Emily and Fab are still together. They've attended events together as a couple in recent months, and gone on family vacations. 

Back in March, Fab's attorney described the incident captured on camera as an argument, and denied Fabolous had committed any crime.

Caitlyn Jenner Trans Community Got It Wrong ... She Didn't Vote for Trump

10/9/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Caitlyn Jenner is being treated more harshly by her own, transgender community than the general public because they think she voted for Donald Trump ... but she didn't, according to her partner.

Sophia Hutchins says a few leaders in the trans community have poisoned them against Caitlyn, and the media just stoked the coals.

Sophia, who sat for an interview with Jim Breslo on his podcast, "Hidden Truth," didn't reconcile something her partner told Diane Sawyer ... that she voted for Trump.

Sophia says Caitlyn has had a hard time winning over the trans community, in part because they unfairly view her as unrelatable because she lives a privileged life. She blasts the media for telling untruths about her partner ... blasts them hard.

Sophia has long been an LGBTQ activist ... noting, when she was at college at the Christian school Pepperdine University, she fought the administration to get an LGBTQ club on campus. It rankles her that the media reduces her to being "a model."

Chris Martin & Dakota Johnson Throw Gender Reveal Party ... But, Rep Says Not Their Baby

10/8/2018 12:56 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

12:50 PM PT -- Dakota's rep tells us she is NOT pregnant, and they were just throwing a birthday party. The rep did not say what the deal was with the pink and blue balloons.

Chris Martin and Dakota Johnson are having a baby, and the timing of their gender reveal party is pretty interesting ... considering what Chris' ex just celebrated.

Chris and Dakota, who've been dating for about a year, had a party at his place on Sunday, and photos and video from the event make it clear what they were celebrating.

Blue and pink balloons were tied down in arches ... as their celeb friends arrived. Dakota's folks -- Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson -- walked in, along with Sean Penn and Julia Roberts.

Looks like Don was last to arrive ... because about 10 minutes after he got there, the string of blue balloons were released into the sky. So, all signs point to them having a boy, unless someone screwed up the release.

Chris' big baby news came one week after Gwyneth Paltrow tied the knot with her new guy, Brad Falchuk. Chris didn't attend their wedding ... he was performing at the Global Citizen Festival in NYC, and Dakota was there with him.

Interesting, when Dakota walked onstage she was wearing a very baggy outfit and overcoat. Little did we know, she had a baby on board.

Cardi B & Offset Back in Strip Club ... Throwing Cash Not Fists, This Time

10/8/2018 8:51 AM PDT

Slow clap for Cardi B and Offset -- they're back making it rain on strippers, and this time no drinks or fists were thrown.

The couple headed back to a strip club, Crazy Girls, Sunday night in L.A. ... smacking butts instead of bartenders. It was their first time in a gentlemen's establishment, that we've seen anyway, since Cardi's last visit. Ya know, the one that got her arrested and charged with assault for allegedly ordering a beatdown on strip club bartenders.

Offset was armed with a seemingly endless stack of Washingtons in their VIP section ... and Cardi even got on a pole and started twerking for her man. What's that thing about old habits?

Smart move on Offset's part -- everyone knows the dancers give you way more attention when you have a female companion. Just take a note from Offset, and get ya girl some roses while you're at it.
