Tyga So, Kylie's Preggo? Cool, I'm with Arianny Celeste!!!

9/25/2017 9:26 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

Tyga deserves an award for best-timed rebound ever, 'cause he's hooking up with UFC Octagon hottie Arianny Celeste ... fresh off Kylie Jenner's pregnancy news.

Tyga and Arianny were at Universal Studios Saturday night for Halloween Horror Nights. Witnesses tell us they were showing major PDA -- he wrapped his arms around her waist and she was holding onto him walking through the mazes.

We're told they're hanging out but are not exclusive. Maybe he needs a refresher on Arianny's vacay mode pics ... to lock down this relationship.

Perfect way to get over your ex getting knocked up, we're guessing.

New 'Bachelor' Arie Luyendyk Jr. Hop On, It's Gonna Be a Wild Ride!!!

9/25/2017 8:46 AM PDT

Former pro race car driver and new 'Bachelor' Arie Luyendyk Jr. knows all about the fast lane and looks like he's already in it with one of the chicks from the new season.

The show started shooting last week in L.A., and over the weekend Arie had one of the hopeful ladies hop on his hog for a ride. We'd say the motorcycle date worked like a charm ... because they were spotted making out later in the day. Race car drivers move fast.

BTW, the cop behind them wasn't pulling them over -- just an escort hired by production.

No word on who she is, but she's one of 30 or so. Arie's gonna need to gas up if he's planning to take 'em all on the road.

Kevin Hart's Sex Tape Partner She Works the Pole But Just for Fun

9/22/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kevin Hart's sex tape partner has big stripper moves ... and she's even armed with an official license to strip.

Montia Sabbag showed up some pretty impressive pole action at The Golden Banana strip club in Boston, where she bartended between 2011 and 2013. We're told the video was shot after hours and was just for giggles.

Montia said in her news conference Wednesday with her attorney, Lisa Bloom, she's not a stripper. Turns out, she has an official adult entertainment license in Nevada, which gives her the right to work in any capacity in a strip joint. So if she wanted to work the pole for more than just fun, she could.

Gotta say ... she could make a living.

As we reported ... Montia denies any involvement in the extortion plot against Kevin ... even though we're told her first lawyer requested hundreds of thousands from his team to take a lie detector test. Her new attorney says her client is now going to cops to help catch the real perps. 

As for Montia ever stripping for real? She says it ain't for her. Definitely could be, though, as far as the state of Nevada's concerned. 

Kevin Hart's Sex Tape Partner Not Sweatin' Sex Tape, Extortion ... Just Casually Checking Mail

9/21/2017 8:56 AM PDT

Kevin Hart's sex tape partner, Montia Sabbag, doesn't look the least bit concerned about the extortion investigation ... in fact, she's taking a totally casual approach as she kicks it in L.A.

Montia was at a home in the L.A. area Wednesday just hours after she held a news conference with celebrity attorney Lisa Bloom to publicly deny any wrongdoing, and declare she was also victimized by the sex tape recording. 

She was rocking a far more casual look -- a midriff-baring pink sweatsuit -- than the all-business blouse she wore at the newser. As for her weekend in Las Vegas with Kevin ... seems mum's the word, at least when her attorney isn't present.

Mike Epps Hey Kevin, Jesus Died for Our Sins ... Now Keep It In Your Pants!

9/21/2017 12:10 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Mike Epps has some sage advice for Kevin Hart from a spiritual outlook, and also on a physical tip.

We got the comedian Wednesday at LAX, where he reflected on Kevin's sex tape extortion scandal ... saying he -- like other rich, famous men -- has to keep an eye out for vultures.

Then he dragged Jesus into it, and reassured Kevin it's okay to screw up every now and then. Mike's best advice though comes on the heels of his own divorce.

Pay attention Kev, here's the Epps' golden rule to dodging messy breakups.

It's simple, but perhaps too late.

Kevin Hart Sex Tape Partner Says I'm Not an Extortionist!!!

9/20/2017 9:12 AM PDT

The woman who ended up on the extortion sex video with Kevin Hart says she's a crime victim herself and she's going to cops.

Montia Sabbag joined her lawyer, Lisa Bloom, for a news conference just a few minutes ago and acknowledged she had "an intimate relationship" with Hart that apparently was partially captured on the video.

Sabbag said flatly, "I am not an extortionist. I had nothing to do with these recordings."

She says she has not been contacted by law enforcement yet, but Bloom said they are going to cops immediately.

Bloom said her client is not demanding money from Kevin, whom she says is also a victim. Our photog asked about our story ... that Sabbag's previous lawyer told Kevin's people she would take a lie detector test if they paid her $420,000. Bloom said "She is not demanding money." She did not address the issue of the prior demand with respect to the lie detector.

TMZ broke the story, the video was secretly shot the weekend of August 19 ... when Kevin and Sabbag got tight at Marquee nightclub in Vegas.

Sabbag did not say who she thinks made the recording, but Bloom made it clear it's a felony to secretly record private moments like this.

Kevin Hart Woman in Extortion Video Traveling Stripper

9/19/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kevin Hart partied with a woman -- who is now at the center of the sexually explicit video -- for an entire weekend last month, and we've learned she's a stripper who hits up whatever clubs she can book.

Her name is Montia Sabbag, although she sometimes spells it Montiah Sabagg. She's 27, lives in Long Beach, CA and met Kevin during a pretty wild weekend in Vegas back in August.

The first frames of the 4 minute and 47 second video are a pic of Kevin and Montia. You can't see who's on the bed during the most explicit portion of the tape, but after the bed scene 2 people who look like Kevin and Montia are walking around in various stages of undress.

We're told Kevin had never met her before and has not had any encounters with her since.

As we reported, she denies she had anything to do with shooting the video, but authorities are not so sure. We're told there were other people present during the weekend and investigators are tracking them all down, with the intent of serving search warrants as quickly as possible.

The brass ring for law enforcement is decoding the encrypted emails the extortionist sent to Kevin's people and figuring out the sender's identity. 

As we reported, Montia lawyered up almost immediately after Kevin's team contacted her, and her lawyer said she would sit for a lie detector test if Kevin paid her $420,000.

Our sources say before making a multi-million dollar demand to Kevin in return for keeping the video a secret, the extortionist tried to get at least one media outlet to pay $15 million for the highly produced video.

Our sources say Kevin had a meeting by telephone Monday afternoon with 2 investigators on the case and it lasted an hour and a half. He aggressively wants to help law enforcement identify and catch the extortionist(s). This was his second meeting with investigators.

'DWTS' Barbara Corcoran I Like Holdin' Onto My Junk!!!

9/19/2017 7:27 AM PDT

Barbara Corcoran was hangin' onto Keo Motsepe for dear life ... hangin' onto his junk.

The "Shark Tank" star and her pro dancer scored a 14 on the season premiere of "Dancing with the Stars" Monday ... but the bigger story was Barbara grabbing onto Keo's crotch as the judges were dishing scores.

What's unclear is if Babs was oblivious or conscious that she was in the region.   

We reached out to Barbara and she tells TMZ ... "No, I have better aim than that! I was reaching for his hand and landed on his thigh and hung on for dear life."

Karrueche Tran My Thong Th-Thong Thong Thong ... Perfect Dinner Attire!!!

9/19/2017 7:54 AM PDT

Karrueche Tran really put her ass on the line for dinner at Catch.

Karrueche strolled into the WeHo hot spot wearing completely sheer pants with just a thong underneath. Other patrons might have hated to see her go, but we're guessing they loved watching her leave ... based on the crowd's reaction outside the restaurant. 

That old "no shirt, no shoes, no service" rule might need to be updated if KT keeps up these wardrobe choices.

Or not. As you can see -- NO ONE was complaining.

Kevin Hart Woman in Car Photos Says I'm Not the One in the Extortion Video

9/19/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

A woman Kevin Hart was photographed with earlier this summer has now been accused of being at the center of his extortion video ... but she's calling BS, and our information is also that she's not the woman in the video.

Monique "Momo" Gonzalez, a Miami based singer, has been raked over the coals online ever since Kevin's apology video and extortion case came to light over the weekend ... with lots of folks saying she's the lady with whom Kevin allegedly cheated.

Monique's saying its absolutely untrue, and sources close to Kevin back that up. She says she never hooked up with Hart.

A rep for the singer tells TMZ ... despite photos that surfaced in July showing them in a car together, their interaction that night was strictly a friendly convo ... nothing more.

As we reported ... the woman who's pictured with Kevin in the video has demanded lots of cash to take a lie detector test.

The L.A. County D.A. is on the case and honing in on at least one suspect.

Kevin Hart Deeply Involved in Police Extortion Investigation Talking to Law Enforcement

9/18/2017 3:06 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kevin Hart is aggressively helping authorities nab the people who tried extorting him over that sexually charged video ... and TMZ has learned he's speaking with them today to tell them everything he knows.

Sources connected with Hart tell us Kevin is talking to law enforcement by phone today on a call that is expected to last around an hour and a half. Our sources say he's livid at the culprits and wants them caught so bad he's willing to stop everything else he's doing to help.

We're told this will be the second extended conversation he's had with law enforcement.

As for who the culprits are ... no one knows for sure, although everyone involved has their suspicions. We're told the woman in the photo with Kevin that appears at the beginning of the video has told Kevin's people she knew nothing about the video, suggesting she's a victim, too.

But the woman immediately lawyered up. As we first reported, the lawyer contacted Kevin's people and said his client would take a lie detector test, but only if she was paid 6 figures. We're now told that amount is $420k.  

It appears there's more than one person involved in the extortion plot, and as one person familiar with the investigation tells us, "Sometimes they seem incredibly sophisticated, and other times they just seem downright dumb."

Kevin Hart Extortionist's Rage Captured in Audio with His Own Words

9/18/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The woman who tried extorting Kevin Hart with a 4 minute and 47 second video sweetened the images with Kevin Hart's own words about cheating and fidelity.

TMZ broke the story ... the extortionist created a highly-produced video which begins with a photo (above), then a scene with a bed where it appears 2 people are having sex (although you can't see who they are), followed by a naked man putting his clothes on in the same room, who definitely looks like Hart.

The extortionist rages in the video about Kevin proclaiming he's now a one woman man and how she says it's all just a big, fat lie.

She pulled audio from several interviews Kevin has done recently, where he admits cheating on his first wife but passes it off to youth. He then rhapsodizes about his current wife and says cheating is too risky a proposition.

As we first reported, the FBI is on the hunt for the extortionist and they have a suspect. It's unclear if the suspect is the woman pictured with Kevin or someone else who may have captured the bedroom scene with an iPhone. The extortionist's latest demand is in the millions, but we're told at one point it was 8 figures.

Kevin Hart Extortion Vid Person of Interest Will Take Lie Detector Test ... For a Price

9/17/2017 3:38 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

One of the people who could be the extortionist behind the Kevin Hart sexually explicit video contacted his lawyer and offered to take a lie detector test ... but the comedian would have to write a huge check to make that happen.

Sources familiar with the case tell TMZ ... the bizarre call was made recently by a person who apparently has some connection to the encounter between Kevin and the woman pictured above.

The person who called Hart's lawyer did not say what they would answer while hooked up to the polygraph, but said they would only sit for a 6-figure amount -- we're told somewhere around $500,000.

The crazy thing is this ... if the person is the extortionist, they're essentially saying they would go to prison for $500k. If they're not the extortionist, then they're a scam artist. 

Our sources say Kevin's attorney did not bite. 

As we reported, the FBI is on the case and is honing in on a suspect
