Quickie Wedding Reeks of Ex-Fiancé
7/23/2014 8:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Naya Rivera's marriage to actor Ryan Dorsey came out of nowhere for everyone, except Naya -- who actually co-opted a lot of the ceremony from her planned wedding to Big Sean ... including the date.
Rivera and Dorsey tied the knot in Cabo San Lucas over the weekend. The longtime friends began dating right after Rivera broke off her engagement to rapper Big Sean in April.
According to our sources, the wedding date -- July 19 -- was the exact same date Naya and Sean were supposed to tie the knot. We're told Naya picked the date back in October when she and Sean got engaged.
The similarities don't end there ... according to reports, Rivera was married in a Monique Lhuillier gown -- which our sources say is the same designer of the dress Sean bought for Rivera for their wedding.
One more thing -- Rivera never gave back Sean's engagement ring, according to our sources. However, we don't know if she found a way to re-purpose that.
Ryan Dorsey's dad, Arnold, tells TMZ ... the date of the wedding might have been the same as the Rivera/Big Sean wedding ... but it also happens to be Dorsey's birthday.
Arnold says he found out about the wedding six weeks ago and while he was initially surprised, he said, "We didn’t question him. We are very happy for him. We trusted them and want what they wanted."
Arnold also said the wedding was small, about 12 people total, and consisted of Naya’s family and Ryan’s family.

Is Actually Going Down!

"The Wanted" singer Siva Kaneswaran convinced his girlfriend to throw a "Star Wars"-themed wedding ... and he didn't even have to use Jedi mind tricks.
Siva's fiancee Nareesha McCaffrey agreed to the gimmicky nuptials -- actually we're told he just wore her down -- but the one outstanding sticking point was the dress.
We're told his fiancee refused to walk down the aisle in a slave Leia costume. She's insisting on a traditional wedding dress.
Their dog/ring bearer was not so lucky ... he'll be wearing a Chewbacca outfit.
Groomsmen will wear "Star Wars" cuff links and boutonniere's emblazoned with the movie's logo -- along with other fun stuff.
May the Force prenup be with you.
Kanye's Like a Stranger
That's Why I Didn't Go

Brody Jenner has zero relationship with Kanye West ... and that's a big reason why he didn't make the trek to Europe for Kim's wedding.
Kim's step-bro made the comments on his podcast Thursday, insisting he was not disrespecting Kim by being a no-show at her wedding but front and center at the wedding of her ex-BF Reggie Bush.
Brody says there are 2 other reasons he didn't show:
-- Short notice
-- The wedding was way far away in Paris. It was actually Florence, but whatever.
It's a good sell. You buyin'?
George Clooney's Fiancee
During Law School Graduation
7/15/2014 5:59 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
George Clooney is marrying a beautiful, accomplished woman who was once forced to wear something that makes you think she may be distantly related to General Charles Cornwallis.
Truth be told ... Amal Alamuddin got a law degree from Oxford in 2000, and wore the whole English getup for her graduation. We're guessing the powdered wig stayed in the closet.
She's now a successful international lawyer ... securing British victories at Brandywine and Camden.

My Wedding's Costing Me a Fortune!

"We're excited," Bush said ... noting the guest list will mostly be composed of family members.
Reggie Bush is learning the hard way -- even for rich people, WEDDINGS ARE EXPENSIVE AS HELL!!!!
Bush and his GF Lilit Avagyan were leaving Fishing with Dynamite restaurant in Manhattan Beach ... when we asked about their big wedding at the Grand Del Mar in San Diego this weekend.
But the best part of the clip is when we suggested that the soon-to-be married couple should buy LaDainian Tomlinson's mansion ... and Reggie responded, "I'm tapped out. This wedding is costing me a lot of money!"
Don't feel too bad for Reggie -- he's currently in the middle of a 4-year $16 million contract with the Detroit Lions. And don't forget his monstrous rookie contract with the Saints ... a 6-year deal $62 million deal with more than $26.5 in guaranteed money.
Yeah, he's gonna be just fine ... CONGRATS!!!!
Rails on Tabloid
Marriage Conflict story is a LIE!
7/9/2014 6:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
George Clooney is going nuclear on The Daily Mail, claiming it flat out made up a story about his fiancee's mother objecting to their wedding on religious grounds.
George is especially pissed off about the line in the story that Amal's mom told half of Beruit that if she married someone outside the Druze religion she could be excommunicated. The story also referenced reports that such brides sometimes end up dead.
Clooney starts off by saying Amal's mom is NOT Druze. And more fundamentally, she's not against the marriage.
Clooney didn't stop with the specific story. He went on to accuse The Daily Mail of habitually lying, saying "If they fabricate stories of Amal being pregnant, or that the marriage will take place on the set of Downton Abbey, or that I'm running for office, or any number of idiotic stories that they sit at their computers and invent, I don't care."
He clearly cares a little.
The Daily Mail has removed the article and apologized. They say they have launched an investigation into the matter.

The Simpson wedding is set to take place at San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito -- the same place JFK and Jackie O famously honeymooned. The guests celebrated our independence in style yesterday at the Santa Barbara adjacent resort.
The party included karaoke and a performance by a live band.

SHOTS FIRED AT CHAD OCHOCINCO ... and the woman pulling the trigger is his ex-wife Evelyn Lozada!!!
The "Basketball Wives" star -- who happens to be engaged to L.A. Dodgers superstar Carl Crawford -- was hangin' at GNC at the Beverly Center ... when we asked to see the massive 14.5 carat diamond ring he gave her back in December.
That's when Evelyn flashed the ring ... and a little bit of sass ... taking aim at the puny 10 carat rock Chad gave her back in 2010.

Hey Kanye, No Problemo
You Trashed Me!
6/19/2014 9:46 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Annie Leibovitz has decided to address Kanye West's attack on her ... problem is, she wussed out.
You'll recall Kanye trashed Annie for bailing on shooting their wedding right before the vows. Kanye said she was just "afraid of celebrity." A weird comment, since Annie has become world famous for shooting celebs.
So ... Annie's just sent us a long, rambling statement which also contains comments from Kanye -- and it never directly addresses the "afraid of celebrity" comment.
The rep says Kanye was frustrated he couldn't "collaborate with Annie" but he's not blaming her for bailing .... even though his comment sure sounds like blame.
The rep says, "Unbeknownst to Kanye, she was never confirmed." Annie's rep adds, "she would have loved to have taken their wedding portrait and was disappointed it didn't happen."
And get this ... the statement says Annie is responsible for shooting Kim and Kanye's Vogue cover, but she's "not known to shoot weddings." It sounds like she wasn't really into doing it in the first place."
And get this BJ ... Kanye says, "The most-liked Instagram photo of all time, shot by Annie Leibovitz. Oh, I'm sorry for dreaming out loud. Again."
