Caitlyn Jenner Alleged 21-Year-Old GF 'Home Sweet Home' In Cait's Crib

5/19/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Caitlyn Jenner and her rumored 21-year-old girlfriend appear to have shacked up together ... and the proof is all in Jenner's bed!

Caitlyn and Sophia Hutchins -- who is also transgender -- have reportedly been an item for several months. However, earlier this week Sophia dropped a massive hint as to just how serious things between the two might actually be.

Hutchins posted a photo of herself lying on a bed with the caption, "Home. Sweet. Home." Look closely ... the bed's headboard is the exact same one Caitlyn's posted many times in the past from her Malibu home.

Sources close to the two tell us 68-year-old Jenner and Hutchins are not romantic -- just close friends -- and rumors they're about to tie the knot are total BS ... but Hutchins' pic and caption seemingly seals the deal on the fact they're at least roommates ... at least. 

The Royal Wedding Royal Flub on Programs ... Says Meghan's Dad Will Be There!!!

5/18/2018 4:43 PM PDT

Either the Royal Wedding programs were printed far in advance, or someone made a huge mistake ... because they're not updated to show Meghan Markle's dad, Thomas, won't be there.

The Order of Service for Prince Harry and Meghan's wedding was just made available to the public, and we noticed something wrong ... on page 9 -- there are 20 pages total! -- it says the Bride "is joined by her Father, Mr Thomas Markle, to the High Altar.

We broke the story ... Thomas is unable to make the trip to the U.K. for the wedding because he's recovering from heart surgery. Prince Charles is stepping in his place to do the honors ... which will be a surprise to those going strictly off the program.

FYI, the Order of Service includes full details about the processions, music, hymns, prayers and readings ... and some incidental fake news about Meghan's dad.

5/18/2018 3:40 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

When Meghan Markle walks down the aisle, actress Christine Adams will be watching closely -- not just because she's British, but because she has some history with Prince Harry's betrothed.

Christine, who stars on the CW's "Black Lightning," was leaving the London Hotel (appropriately) Friday in NYC ... and couldn't wait to break down the Royal Wedding. She told us about her neighborhood ties to the bride, but admits her invitation might have been "lost in the mail."

She says Meghan has the right stuff to marry into the royal fam, and gives Prince Charles major props. Christine also gave us her idea of the perfect viewing party. Think less Jack Daniels and more Earl Grey.

Note for Christine and all royal watchers: TMZ.com will be livestreaming the Royal Wedding bright and early Saturday at 1 AM PT.

Meghan Markle's Dad Tells Daughter ... I'm Honored Prince Charles Will Walk You Down the Aisle!!!

5/18/2018 10:25 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Meghan Markle's father had a talk with his daughter Meghan and Prince Harry Thursday and tells us his daughter has his blessing on Prince Charles walking her down the aisle.

Thomas Markle tells TMZ he's "honored and grateful" Charles will give his daughter away, since he can't be there because of his heart condition

Thomas told us he has no reservations or shock regarding Meghan's choice. Lots of people thought Meghan's mom would do the honors, but Thomas is down with her choice.

Thomas says Meghan was super sweet on the phone, telling him she loved him and worrying about his health. He reassured her he's recovering and doing okay, adding he will "proudly" watch her tie the knot Saturday on TV "in a secluded place with friends, hopefully with no press."

Thomas says Meghan and Harry told him they had no plans to visit him. He told them he hoped to travel to the UK to meet Harry and see Meghan "sometime in the near future."   

Nikki Bella I Believe John Wants Kids But, I Still Have My Doubts About Marriage

5/18/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

John Cena's very public campaign to win back Nikki Bella is working, but she's still not ready to seal the deal with the wrestling/movie star.

Nikki tells TMZ, John's public hand-wringing -- including posting a photo of John Cusack holding the boombox over his head in the film "Say Anything" -- has convinced her his change of heart about wanting kids wasn't hollow. She says, "I believe 100% he wants kids. It makes me want to run back and jump into his arms."

She says she believes he's now sincere that he wants children ... which was the deal breaker that caused her to break up with him. Until this week, Nikki believed she had forced John to say what she wanted to hear so she'd take a walk down the aisle.

Here's the problem ... Nikki says it's kind of been like a Pandora's Box. The conflict over children has raised issues in her head about the relationship. She says, "I care about him and love him a lot," but now she has to do some serious thinking about the turn in their relationship and feel if it's still right.

She says she's really hurt by the buzz that the whole conflict -- and even the relationship -- is fake to goose ratings for her reality show and John's career. She says, "A lot of people get married for publicity. I'm not like those reality show people. I don't want to be hesitant. I want to do what my heart says."  

Nikki says she has no idea what she'd say if John comes face-to-face with her and begs her to marry him. She says, "I'm a girl who lives in the moment and I honestly don't know what I'd say."

Teairra Mari Suing Ex & 50 Cent For Leaking the Sex Tape

5/17/2018 9:51 AM PDT
Breaking News

'Love & Hip Hop' star Teairra Mari said her ex-bf leaked a sex video as revenge for breaking up with him ... so she's suing him and 50 Cent for reposting a sexually explicit image.

Teairra -- flanked by her attorneys, Lisa Bloom and Walter Mosley -- broke down in tears during an emotional news conference Thursday to announce the suit. Teairra said the ugly episode was triggered after she broke up with Akbar Abdul-Ahad after finding out he was cheating on her.

The reality star claims Akbar had her Instagram password and posted a video and an obscene photo of her as payback and to humiliate her. Teairra claims Fiddy, Akbar's close friend, then reposted an image to his 18 million followers before it was taken down.

Lisa said they'll file a police report later Thursday along with the suit. She added, "We have a significant piece of evidence that points to [Akbar]." AAA denies he was behind the act.

Should be noted ... questions as to whether Teairra was allegedly behind taking a metal rod to Akbar's G-Wagon were not raised. 

Elton John Will Perform at The Royal Wedding

5/16/2018 5:03 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Elton John will take the stage at the royal wedding ... a fitting choice given the singer's history with Prince Harry, Princess Diana and the Royal Family. 

Sources close to Elton tell TMZ the singer is set to perform during Saturday's event ... it's still unclear whether he'll get behind his piano at the church ceremony or at the reception later in the night.

Elton's been tight with the Royal Family for years ... he was an extremely close friend of Princess Diana. The two worked together to raise money for AIDS research and awareness of the disease.

The singer was also a tremendous source of support for Prince Harry and Prince William when Diana died in 1997. Elton famously performed "Candle in the Wind" as a tribute for Diana at her funeral.

Elton had originally booked shows in Vegas for this weekend, but they were rescheduled months ago due to a "scheduling conflict" ... guess now we know the conflict.   

Lucas Glover 911 Call 'My Wife Has Gone Crazy'

5/16/2018 9:57 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

TMZ Sports has obtained the 911 call in the Lucas Glover domestic violence case ... and there are wild allegations being made by both the PGA star and his wife.

Krista Glover initially called 911 on Saturday to report she had been attacked by her mother-in-law at the Florida home they were renting while Lucas was playing in the Players Championship golf tournament.

"I've been attacked by my mother-in-law," Krista told the operator ... "She's locked herself in the room and attacked us."

A short time later, Lucas spoke to the operator and says his wife was LYING. 

"She's trying to blame it on my mother which is not the case at all," Lucas said ... "My wife has gone crazy."

The operator tells Lucas cops are on the way -- but he tries to stop that from happening, "I don't think anybody needs to come out here, thank you though."

Eventually, cops arrived to the home and determined Krista was the aggressor and had gotten physical with Lucas' mother. She was arrested for domestic violence and cops say she continued to rage on police while they were trying to place her in custody. 

Lucas has since issued a statement saying he's trying to work things out with Krista. 

Conor McGregor Buys Baller Bounce House ... For Baby Conor

Breaking News

He just turned 1 ... but Conor McGregor Jr. already has his own house!!

Yeah, it's a bouncy house ... but it's dope and it's all set up at the UFC fighter's massive Ireland estate. 

Conor Sr. is getting in some quality father-son time before he goes back to fighting ... and it's pretty cute. He even pushes the kid on a swing and CJ loves it. 

It's a different side of Conor ... much different than the raging maniac we saw in Brooklyn, when he went berserk on a UFC bus and injured several people. 

Makes you wonder if Conor ... a master P.R. guy ... is using social media to rehab his image, especially with criminal charges still looming in NY. 

If he does avoid jail time -- next up is likely a date with Khabib Nurmagomedov ... one of the most violent men on the planet. 

But until then ... enjoy the family time!

The 31-year-old WWE superstar has been talking about babies for a while -- first bringing up the topic on "Ellen" back in 2016.

The one speedbump ... Ronda's wrestling career is taking off in a huge way. 

In fact, she just booked her first championship match against the Raw Women's champ, Nia Jax, at the "Money in the Bank" Pay-Per-View next month in Chicago. 

So, first knock out Jax and then get knocked up?

PGA Star Lucas Glover Says Wife Attacked Him ... Over Bad Golf Tourney

5/15/2018 12:55 PM PDT
Breaking News

PGA star Lucas Glover -- who won the 2009 U.S. Open -- told cops his wife, Krista, attacked him Saturday and called him a "p*ssy" and a "loser" because he played poorly in a golf tournament earlier that day. 

It's all in a police report obtained by TMZ Sports ... which says cops in Jacksonville, Florida were called to a rented house where Glover, his wife and mother were staying. 

According to the report, Lucas' mother had cuts on her arms and blood on her chest when cops arrived ... and said Krista had attacked both her and Lucas. 

When cops made contact with Lucas, he said the fight started after he played a bad round of golf at the Players Championship earlier that day. 

The police report states ... "Lucas advised me every time he plays poorly in a tournament, Krista begins yelling at him, stating he is a 'loser' and 'p*ssy' and ultimately starting an altercation with him about his performance."

Lucas told police Krista had been drinking throughout the day before the fight. 

The golfer also told police, "how he better win or [Krista] and the kids would leave him and he would never see their kids again."

Lucas also said he was tired of all the fights and couldn't take it anymore. 

Krista was eventually arrested for domestic violence -- but cops say she became combative and resisted. 

While she was en route for the jail, she allegedly threatened the arresting officers saying, "This is why cops get shot in the face."

Cops also say Krista kicked the squad car so hard, the door separated from the frame. 

Lucas has since tweeted about the incident, "On May 12, my wife and mother were involved in an argument to which the police were called. Everyone is fine."

"Regrettably, although Krista was charged, we are comfortable that the judicial system is able to address what actually happened and Krista will be cleared in this private matter."

Lucas says the two are "working through" things after the incident. 

Ex-MLB'er Matt Mantei Convicted In Dom. Violence Case ... Avoids Jail Time

5/15/2018 8:35 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ex-MLB pitcher Matt Mantei was convicted of domestic violence after roughing up his wife, but he ain't gonna spend a minute behind bars ... TMZ Sports has learned.

We broke the story ... Mantei -- who was known for his 100 MPH heater during his 10-year career in the big leagues -- was arrested April 17 in Michigan after his wife told cops Mantei got physical with her while arguing over a cell phone.

She claimed the closer grabbed her, threw her to the floor, and held her down ... before letting her up and shoving her -- causing minor injuries.

Mantei appeared before a judge in Berrien County last Friday ... and pled no contest to 1 count of misdemeanor domestic violence. But, we're told the judge reviewed the evidence and found that Mantei committed the offense of domestic violence, according to prosecutor Michael Sepic.

With the conviction, comes punishment ... but no jail and no probation. 

Instead, we're told the former Marlin, D'Back and Red Sox flamethrower was merely ordered to pay $635 in court fees and fines ... which we're told he already paid -- so it's essentially, case closed.

Prince Harry, Meghan Markle Palace Blindsided By Thomas Markle's Decision to Bail on Wedding

5/15/2018 7:25 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kensington Palace was caught flatfooted by TMZ's story that Meghan Markle's dad will not walk his daughter down the aisle ... because we found out the palace had made elaborate plans for him.

Our palace sources say the plans included a security detail for Thomas Markle, along with accommodations and access to various events.

TMZ broke the story ... Thomas Markle told us he would not attend the wedding because he felt shame that he made a deal with a paparazzi agency that photographed him in staged shots.

One source connected to Meghan confirms what we posted Monday ... that Meghan's mom is now the frontrunner to give her daughter away. We're told the 2 are extremely close.

As for who's not close to Meghan ... her half-sister, Samantha Grant. Our Meghan sources say the 2 have "absolutely no relationship" and "she knows nothing about Meghan's life." The sources warn that Samantha is trying to take the media for a ride by planting stories with no basis in fact.

Finally, we tried to find out if Meghan has reached out to her dad to see if she could change his mind. So far, no word back.
