Courtney Love Files Restraining Order against Sam Lutfi

12/10/2018 1:36 PM PST
Exclusive Details

Courtney Love has broken in a big way with her ex-manager, Sam Lutfi, and she's just filed to get a restraining order because she says he's harassing her and her family unrelentingly.

We've learned Courtney has just filed legal docs saying Lutfi has been demanding money from her for services he says he rendered ... and he is now so pissed off he's incessantly harassing her with emails, texts and phone calls.

Courtney also wants the judge to prohibit Lutfi from harassing her daughter Frances Bean and Courtney's sister.

The judge has yet to rule.

BTW ... both Courtney and Sam are being sued by Frances Bean Cobain's ex-husband, Isaiah Silva, for allegedly orchestrating a break-in at his house and trying to steal Kurt Cobain's famous 'MTV Unplugged' guitar ... which is in Isaiah's possession

Offset I Want Cardi Back ... Haters Are Messing it Up

12/10/2018 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Offset is madly in love with Cardi B and plans to pull out all the stops to get her back, but he thinks there's a major hurdle in his way -- the legion of haters trying to take him down.

Sources close to the couple tell TMZ, Offset was desperately trying to save his marriage before Cardi made the announcement they were done. Even she acknowledged they'd been working on it "for a hot minute now."

We're told after the text messages about Cuban Doll surfaced, Offset tried to prove to his wife nothing came of the text exchange ... and he wasn't messing around with anyone. 

Our sources say Offset feels his greatest challenge now is to regain his wife's trust -- which feels impossible to him because haters keep filling Cardi's social media posts with negativity about him.

We're told Cardi reads blogs and comments, and Offset feels like he's up against all of that. 

Sources tell us Offset's made one thing clear to friends -- he only loves Cardi and his daughter -- and will take every chance he can to save his family. Offset even posted a desperate tweet on Sunday saying he missed Cardi.

As for Cardi ... she seems pretty content living the single life. Seems.  

Beyonce 'Crazy in Love' ... Indian Billionaire Style

12/10/2018 6:37 AM PST

Beyonce and Hillary Clinton made the trek to India for a wedding ... and we're guessing Bey pocketed an insane amount of loot.

The shindig was thrown by the father of the bride -- Mukesh Ambani, the richest person in all of India. He owns an oil and gas conglomerate and is worth around $42 billion.

Beyonce performed a set of some of her hits, including "Crazy in Love," "Naughty Girl" and "Perfect." 

As for why Hillary made the trip ... she and Bill are longtime friends of the Ambani fam, although Bill didn't go.

The bride, Isha Ambani, was a bridesmaid just last week when Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra got hitched.

Beyonce performed at a pre-wedding bash. These events have become cash cows for celebs -- weddings Bar Mitzvahs and such. It's not unheard of for a celeb to rake in a million bucks, and if anyone can command that kind of fee ... it's Beyonce.  

Nicki Minaj Getting Closer with New BF ... A Convicted Sex Offender

12/10/2018 10:04 AM PST

2:30 PM PST -- Nicki just admitted to the allegations, writing, "He was 15, she was 16 ... in a relationship. But go awf, internet. y'all can't run my life. Y'all can't even run y'all own life. Thank you boo."Nicki Minaj's new boo is a registered sex offender with a disturbing rap sheet that includes convictions for manslaughter and attempted rape ... TMZ has learned. 

Kenneth Petty is the 40-year-old she's been hanging with, and posting pics with on Instagram. Court records, obtained by TMZ, show he was convicted of first-degree attempted rape in April 1995. He was 16 at the time, and so was his victim.

Prosecutors said he used a sharp object when he tried to force the girl to have sexual intercourse. Petty served almost 4 years in NY state prison for the crime. 

And, get this ... years after getting out of the pen, Petty was convicted of first-degree manslaughter, and served another 7 years for shooting a man. He was released in 2013. 

She acknowledged their hometown connection by quoting Adele's "Hello" in the caption of their latest pic -- "Did you ever make it out of that town where nothing ever happens? ... it's no secret ... that the both of us ... are running out of time."

They were reportedly friends from Queens.

Cardi B Now I'm Rapping About Divorce ... But This Ain't for Pub, Okurrrr?!!

12/9/2018 11:00 AM PST

12:43 PM PST -- Cardi just took to social media for another one of her video explainers, in which she assured folks that her split with Offset was no publicity stunt. Unclear if she's directly responding to Offset's Twitter plea or talk of her switching up the lyrics to 'Motorsport,' but either way ... she's putting any of those rumors to rest. 

11:00 AM PST -- It's now clear Cardi has her husband's attention. Offset just admitted on Twitter ... he misses her. Reconciliation? Door opened?

Cardi B and Offset's breakup is now fueling her live performances -- she dropped the big "D" into one of her biggest hits with her now estranged husband.

When Cardi took the stage for Chicago's Jingle Bash show she performed "Motorsport" -- the Migos hit featuring her and Nicki Minaj -- but she switched up the lyrics to reflect her split from Offset.

She rapped during the Saturday night set ... “I get up set off. I turn Offset on. I told him the other day, yeah, we gon' get a divorce!”

For those who don't know ... the original line goes, "I get up set off. I turn Offset on. I told him the other day. Man, we should sell that porn."

The crowd definitely took note of Cardi's edit on her verse. The big question: Is Offset paying attention?

Makes sense Cardi added the "divorce" line -- as we reported, she also did the show without her massive 8-carat diamond ring.

We know what you're thinking, and the deal is ... it's Cardi's to keep. Once they tied the knot, Offset lost all rights to the rock.

Sorry, that's just how the carats crumble.

Katie Cassidy Looking Straight as an Arrow ... Before Tying the Knot

Katie Cassidy announced she got hitched to her fiance with a joyous shot of her kissing her groom in all white -- but right before that ... she was steeped in VERY serious thought.

The CW's "Arrow" star posted a sweet photo Sunday of her locking lips with now-hubby, Matthew Rodgers, to whom she got engaged last summer. She captioned her pic with, "I can't help falling in love with you... YES! It's official! #MrsRodgers I love you my husband."

I can’t help falling in love with you... YES! It’s official! #MrsRodgers I love you my husband.

As picturesque as this scene is here, there appeared to be some last-minute prep right before Katie walked down the aisle. Namely, it was just making sure her dress was all set and her bouquet was in order ... which her bridesmaids had under control.

Unclear who walked Katie down the aisle -- seeing how her father, David Cassidy, died a year ago -- but there was a gentleman nearby to possibly carry out the honors. 

Of course, Katie made it to the altar. From a wide view, the location for her wedding was even more gorgeous than what she revealed on Instagram. The newly married pair tied the knot right on the shore of a beach in Sunset Key, FL.

Sailboats as a backdrop come as an added bonus on the island.

Congrats to the happy couple! 

Demi Lovato Sober Buddy Becomes Sober BF ... Dinner Date with Henry

12/9/2018 9:55 AM PST

Demi Lovato's got a lot to celebrate these days, not the least of which being her growing romance with Henry Levy.

The singer and the clothing designer hit up Nobu in Malibu Saturday night. Demi just got a Grammy nomination for her song with Christina Aguilera, "Fall in Line" -- and, by all accounts, she's healthy and continuing to recover from her nearly fatal overdose over the summer.

TMZ broke the story ... she and Henry started hanging out in early November. We got a shot of them at Matsuhisa in Beverly Hills ... holding hands and having a great time.

At the time, sources told us they were mostly supporting each other in sobriety, but seems like it's now blossomed into a full-fledged relationship.

All good signs for Demi.

Cardi B Look, Offset ... No Wedding Ring!!! Just a Big Ol' Smile

12/8/2018 7:08 AM PST

10:00 AM PT -- Along with no ring, we've learned Cardi's no longer following Offset on Instagram ... and he's responded in kind.Cardi B is leaving one stone totally turned -- her giant engagement rock is off her hand, and she's making sure everyone knows it.

Cardi strolled into Madison Square Garden Friday night for iHeartRadio's Jingle Ball concert and proudly showed off her much lighter left hand to fans and photogs.

No doubt, she's sending up a signal -- to her estranged hubby, Offset ... and possibly to all the future suitors waiting to shoot their shot. Y'know her DMs are lit, right now.

Just last month, she was rocking the 8-carat, $550k ring while onstage for a Pandora event in NYC. Things change.

Earlier this week, Cardi announced she and Offset were separated and likely headed for divorce.

If she's busted up about it, she's doing a great job of hiding it in public. Ever the professional, Cardi shook off any Offset-Summer Bunni drama ... and ripped through her set at MSG. No ring required.

Tekashi69's girlfriend is fully supporting her man with some fresh ink and a new hairstyle.

Jade proudly showed off her new "69" tattoo and rainbow hair Friday on her Insta ... and Meek Mill quickly hopped in the comments and joked with her about clout chasing. 

Our industry sources say Meek and Tekashi don't have beef ... and Meek was 100 percent joking when he commented, "Oh you clout chasing chasing? Y'all girls be crazy."

Seems Jade is still riding with 6ix9ine despite the fact he remains in custody while facing life in prison in his federal racketeering case

Of course, it could have something to do with her pricey new watch. We broke the story ... Tekashi lavished her with a custom Rolex for her 22nd birthday.

No word on if Tekashi is getting a matching Chanel tattoo.

EXCLUSIVE

Cuban Doll, the female rapper Offset allegedly tried to rope into a three-way with his supposed mistress, tells us she's definitely not at fault for his breakup with Cardi B

We got Cuban out Thursday night at Topanga Mall ... and she's adamant she NEVER hooked up with Offset, and never even spoken to CB's hubby.

The denials don't end there, because Cuban tells us she had no idea Offset was trying to have sex with her and says she wasn't even aware of his alleged threesome fantasy before it went public.

As we reported ... Cuban was thrust into the middle of Cardi and Offset's split after alleged text messages surfaced appearing to show Offset looking to set up a menage a trois with Cuban and his supposed sidepiece, Summer Bunni.

Ariana Grande My Career's Thriving, But ... 'No Idea What the F*** I'm Doing'

12/7/2018 7:22 AM PST

Ariana Grande's 2018 has been a roller coaster ... and her emotions about it came spilling out as she accepted a Woman of the Year award. 

Ariana was honored at Billboard's Women in Music Awards Thursday night and went from smiling and joking to fighting back tears. She was thrilled about reaching new heights in her career -- culminating with the success of her "Thank U, Next" music vid. The singer said that might have people thinking she's on top of the world.

She quickly reminded the crowd it's been one of the worst years of her life, outside of music, adding ... "As far as my personal life goes, I really have no idea what the f*** I'm doing."

Ariana was clearly referring to her recent breakup with Pete Davidson ... and losing her ex-boyfriend, Mac Miller, when he tragically died in September. Not to mention dealing with the aftermath of last year's bombing at her Manchester concert.

Watch the video ... she also threw a jab at herself for giving away "love and forgiveness" to men. She says that's gonna change.

Olivia Munn Aaron Rodgers Reconciled w/ Parents? 'Amazing, Long Overdue'

12/7/2018 6:01 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Olivia Munn knows first hand about the drama between Aaron Rodgers and his parents -- and tells TMZ Sports it's "amazing" the two sides are finally patching up their relationship. 

Munn has previously talked about the Rodgers' family feud, which has been going on for YEARS -- and said, "I don't think either side of the road is clean."

The actress said she believed there were jealousy issues between Aaron's father and brothers -- who had all dreamed of the kind of NFL success Aaron has already achieved.

But earlier this week, Aaron said he spent his birthday with his parents over the weekend -- suggesting the ice is finally thawing between the two sides ... and Olivia seems genuinely happy for the QB. 

"If that's true, it's amazing," Munn told us outside of Rolling Greens on Thursday ... "It's long overdue."

So, what brought the two sides together?

Aaron's brother, Jordan (who appeared on "The Bachelorette"), had publicly shamed Aaron for not calling their mother while she was about to be evacuated during the California wildfires. 

Guessing that sparked a phone call -- and the rest is history. 

Aaron and Olivia dated from 2014 to 2017 and while she previously said she tried to get Aaron to make peace with his family, it just didn't happen during their relationship. 

Better late than never ...
