Nicki Minaj & Meek Mill Relationship Moving Forward ... By Moving into Bev Hills

8/18/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill are back on the West Coast and their first order of business is moving into a boss mansion together in Bev Hills.

Sources tell TMZ ... Nicki and Meek are dropping $30k a month to rent the 11,500 sq. ft crib. Don't worry, they're getting a lot for that cash -- 9 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms, and a sprawling driveway with a 5-car garage. Parking can be a real bitch in BH.

We're told Nicki and Meek's plans to buy L.A. property got screwed up when he got nailed with house arrest. For now, they're going slow with a lease. We're told only Nicki's name is on the papers.

Meek's already putting all that driveway space to good use for his ATVs.

Avril Lavigne & Ryan Cabrera We're Friends Who Kiss & Cuddle

8/18/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0817-avril-lavigne-tmzAvril Lavigne and Ryan Cabrera had the most romantic steak dinner you've ever seen 2 "friends" have.

The duo was spotted Tuesday night at STK Midtown in NYC, sipping rosé and chowing down on filet and foie gras. Witnesses say they were cozy, cuddly and even kissed a few times.

Avril's been adamant they're just pals. As we reported, Ryan moved in with Avril after she ended things with Chad Kroeger -- but only because his GF kicked him out. That's what friends are for, right?

Ryan was in NYC for his My2K tour and obviously ... some QT time with his friend.

Beyonce Look Out Below! Crazy Yacht Diving

8/17/2016 7:13 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0817-launch-beyonce-yacht-diving-4Beyonce isn't even living life on the edge anymore ... she's going right over it!

We got these shots of Bey and Jay Z balling out off the coast of Sardinia on their rented super yacht, the Halo. Yes, the Halo. But instead of sunbathing or sipping bubbly ... Beyonce decided to go all daredevil and dive off the top deck.

Looks to be at least a 30-foot drop, and we think that's Jigga recording video from below. Maybe she was inspired by the Olympics ... or maybe she's making a quick escape.

Bottom line ... #CakesintheOcean

Ryan Lochte Olympic Teammates Detained in Brazil

Breaking News



10:30 PM PT -- A rep for the USOC says Conger and Bentz have both been released by local authorities ... but will remain in Brazil to continue discussions on Thursday, along with James Feigen, who the rep says is also in contact with investigators.


Team USA swimmers Jack Conger and Gunnar Bentz -- who were with Ryan Lochte during the alleged robbery in Rio -- got yanked off an airplane as they were trying to leave Brazil.

The USOC confirms to TMZ Sports ... Conger and Bentz were detained by authorities, but says it's still gathering information as to find out exactly why.

Earlier on Tuesday, cops in Rio said they were suspicious of the swimmers' claim they were robbed at gunpoint early Sunday morning. The USOC says cops went to the Olympic Village to interview Lochte and teammate James Feigen, but discovered they'd already left -- Locate's actually back in the States. 

NBC says Feigen was slated to be on the same flight with Bentz and Conger, but never showed up.

Looks like they nabbed Conger and Bentz at the last possible moment. Late Wednesday night, cops were still interviewing them at the airport.

'Selma' Movie Shoot Lit Me Up with 220 Volts ... Crew Member Sues

8/17/2016 4:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0817-selma-poster-paramount-01Paramount's Oscar nominated film, "Selma," could have cost an electrician his life ... and now he's suing the studio.

Ron Sands says he was installing a special light for filming -- an "18,000 HMI globe" -- back in June 2014 on the Atlanta set ... when a safety feature failed, and he ended getting a huge zap. He says he suffered severe physical injuries, but isn't any more specific.

In the federal lawsuit, he says he got hit with 220 volts ... something he believes Paramount should've known would eventually happen due to what he saw as faulty wiring on set.

For its part, Paramount says what happened to Sands is just part of the j-o-b, and he "assumed the risk of any hazard" on set ... when he signed on for the production.

Madonna Still a Material Girl ... Even at Cuba's Bargain Rates

Exclusive Details

0817_hotel_saratoga_launch_2Madonna treated herself to the best hotel digs Havana has to offer for her 58th birthday bash, but still came nowhere close to breaking the bank ... not hers, anyway.

Sources with direct knowledge of Madge's 3-day trip tell us she bunked up in Hotel Saratoga's finest room -- the Suite Habana, which typically goes for $700 per night! 

The suite features floor to ceiling windows, its own living room and a junior suite right next door ... possibly where Rocco or her pal Debi Mazar stayed during the celebration.

We're told the hotel had extra security from local police for Madonna's arrival -- just in case of a mob scene -- but everything went smoothly.

Jay Z and Beyonce also stayed at the Saratoga in 2013. Just to illustrate what a bargain rate these celebs are getting ... remember where they stay in Paris: $700 vs. $19,000??

Cuba -- where celebs get way more bang ... for their buck.
