Indiana Pizza Place

Forced to Close Doors

After Refusing to Cater Gay Wedding

4/1/2015 1:59 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0401-memories-pizza-closed-FACEBOOK-01Memories Pizza -- the first Indiana business to declare it would refuse LGBT business -- got blasted on the Internet and by phone, but the owner says there's been a huge misunderstanding ... sorta.

Kevin O’Connor tells TMZ he's had to temporarily close his business after he told a reporter he would refuse to cater a gay wedding under Indiana's new Religious Freedom Restoration Act. O'Connor says he was immediately flooded by threatening phone calls, and social media postings.

O'Connor wants to clear up one thing: He says he would never deny service to gay people in his restaurant. However, due to his religious beliefs, he does not believe in gay marriage ... and that's why he wouldn't service one.

Meanwhile, he says the threats have been serious enough that he's closing his pizza joint ... at least until the dust settles. 

Indiana's controversial law has raised a lot of questions, not the least of which is ... what gay wedding would hire a pizza place to cater?

David Arquette

Picks Spray Paint Over Strippers

For Vegas Bachelor Party

EXCLUSIVE

0326-david-arquette-graffiti-FACEBOOK-01David Arquette is an artist at heart ... even with ass in his face -- and the freshly tagged wall of a Vegas strip club proves it. 

Our stripper sources tell us ... Arquette and his boys were at the Hustler Las Vegas last weekend for his bachelor party -- but instead of draining their bank accounts for lap dances .. they went outside and put a fresh layer of graffiti on the side of the club.

David's been dabbling in graffiti, and as a Hustler L.V. regular ... we're told the club manager gave him and his crew the green light to tag at will. The whole thing took about an hour, but David's no fool ... his posse went inside for few dances before calling it a night.

At least that's the story they're telling his fiancee, Christina McLarty.

Gilbert Arenas

NASTY BREAKUP w/ LAURA GOVAN

Allegedly Sells Her $1 Million Ring

3/23/2015 4:49 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0323_Laura-Govan_gilbert_arenas_TMZGilbert Arenas is being sued by his longtime girlfriend Laura Govan -- the mother of his 4 kids -- who claims Gilbert kicked her out of their L.A. mansion and then sold off her $1 million engagement ring. 

TMZ Sports has obtained court docs filed by Govan ... in which she claims her and Gilbert are in the middle of a NASTY split. 

In the docs, the "Basketball Wives LA" star claims she started dating Gilbert in 2002 ... before he made nearly $200 million in NBA contract money.  

The two never had a formal wedding, but Laura claims they "lived together as husband and wife" and Gilbert promised that she would "share equally" in all of his earnings from 2003 on ... as if they were legally married. 

Govan says the relationship fell apart around the end of 2014 ... when Gilbert "notified [Laura] to vacate the premises" of their home. 

To make matters worse, Laura says Gilbert then "forcefully took" the $1 million engagement ring he gave to her in 2008 and sold it without her permission. 

0323_laura_govan_ring_gettyNow, Laura says she wants her cut of the Arenas fortune -- which she says includes profits from a number of marijuana clinics which she says Gilbert owns. 

Attempts to reach Gilbert for comment were unsuccessful.

It started with a kiss at The Den and ended at an alter ... Country mega-star Jason Aldean and former "American Idol" contestant Brittany Kerr got hitched Saturday in Mexico.

They tied the knot in front of "Duck Dynasty" star Willie Robertson and other close friends, according to UsWeekly.  

0322-jason-aldean-brittany-kerr-makeout-at-den-NPG-01The romance began very publicly in 2012 when Aldean and Kerr were making out at The Den on the Sunset Strip, for all to see.  Aldean, who was married with kids, passed it off as a drunken mistake, but no doubt it turned into real love, because they've been inseparable ever since.

Aldean called the wedding "the best day ever" according to the mag.

It's clearly a case of post breakup hotness, right?

Erin Andrews

Not Engaged

Despite Massive Diamond Ring

3/17/2015 12:14 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0317-erin-andrews-instagramIt looks like an engagement ring ... she's flaunting it like an engagement ring ... but the rock on Erin Andrews' finger is NOT an engagement ring. 

Andrews has been dating L.A. Kings superstar Jarret Stoll for a while ... after she posted a pic with that huge diamond before last night's "Dancing with the Stars" premiere, there was buzz that he finally popped the question.

Turns out ... the ring wasn't from Stoll -- it was from wardrobe ... specifically so Erin would look "blinged out" for the big show.

But the ring was no cheap prop -- according to E!, it was a special asscher-cut diamond ring that weighed in at 2.01 carats with 22 baguette diamonds and 88 other microset diamonds.

Looked good though ... just sayin', Jarret.

Miley and Patrick

In Love, and Dropping the M Word

EXCLUSIVE

Miley Cyrus and Patrick Schwarzenegger are full-on in love, and have even casually said in front of friends they will get married some day.

Multiple sources connected with Miley and Patrick tell us their relationship is intense. Miley is going out of her way to impress Patrick's mom, Maria Shriver, and it goes beyond dressing conservatively when Miley's around her. The conversations do not resemble what Miley puts out on social media.

The couple has partied hard, and initially people who spent time with them thought it was just a hook-up, but it's proven to be deeper.  

And we're told it's not like one is pushing the other into getting serious. They're both totally into it.

'DWTS' star Karina Smirnoff

Another One Bites The Dust ...

Fiance #3 Calls Off Engagement

3/11/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0310-karina-smirnoff-jason-adelman-TMZ-FACEBOOK-01"Dancing With The Stars" pro Karina Smirnoff changes fiances as often as she changes dance partners -- partly because dancers lead sexually charged lives ... this according to her latest ex.

Sources close to Jason Adelman -- who announced he and Karina were engaged in January -- say he called things off because she has "different family values." We're told he's not accusing her of cheating, but he was uncomfortable with the way she acted around other men ... especially dancers.

0310_KARINA_SHMIRNOFF-ring-sub-wmIt's not like this was any long term engagement -- he just popped the question in January ... after they reconnected at a holiday party in December. As for his belief that dancers are all horned up people looking to bang -- a rep for Karina says that is "disrespectful and insulting to the entire dance community."

Our Adelman sources add that he feels Karina's track record speaks for itself ... she's been engaged twice before -- to fellow dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy and MLB pitcher Brad Penny -- but never made it down the aisle. So much for the third time.

Karina's rep also says this is "nothing less than an attempted smear campaign from a malicious person."

For what it's worth ... we're told Karina returned the ring.
