'Bachelor in Paradise' Up Close & Personal ... Under New, Strict Rules

6/28/2017 9:56 AM PDT

The cast of "Bachelor in Paradise" now has a VERY close relationship with the crew under the show's new rules. The question is, business as usual, or the new normal?

Contestants were hanging poolside at the Mexican resort where 'BiP' resumed filming after the DeMario Jackson/Corinne Olympios sex scandal. It's plain as day .. cameramen and producers are hovering like flies over their stars.

We broke the stories ... 'BiP' showrunners have implemented strict new rules for the cast, including a 2 drink maximum per hour, a sweep for illegal drugs ... and having to get permission from producers before hooking up.

Quick side note ... check out Dean Unglert from this season of "The Bachelorette." Apparently he didn't go the distance with Rachel Lindsay.

Rihanna Pool Kisser's Got a Billion Worth O' Toyota, Soccer Dough

6/28/2017 8:53 AM PDT
Breaking News

Rihanna's new face-sucking partner is NOT with her for her money -- bro's got a ton of his own!

Turns out the pool kisser is Hassan Jameel, the heir to Saudi Arabia's largest Toyota distributor. After we posted the pics of their makeout sesh in Spain, there was a lot of speculation he was a Spanish soccer star. Well, that's laughable ... because Hassan OWNS an entire soccer league.

The Saudi pro soccer league is called the Jameel league, and net worth for the Jameel fam is a reported $1.5 BILLION.

Also ... he's dated Naomi Campbell. Hassan's definitely living the dream.

The big question: Will RiRi roll in a Prius?

Lamar Odom Rob Kardashian Cut Me Out of His Life ... I Miss Him

6/28/2017 7:21 AM PDT

Lamar Odom says he really misses his former BFF, Rob Kardashian -- and thinks he's being punished because "maybe I hurt his sister too much."

The ex-NBA star appeared on "The Wendy Williams Show" and opened up about how Rob hasn't spoken to Lamar in a while ... with Odom saying, "I haven't met his child yet."

Lamar and Rob were super tight back in the day -- especially when Rob lived with Khloe and Lamar for a 2-year span. Lamar considered Rob his "brother."

You can see Odom is emotional about the situation -- but admits, "If she was my [sister], I'd have a problem with me too."

As we previously reported, Khloe tried to save her marriage to Lamar -- but he was too consumed by his drug addiction. Lamar has since apologized and said the drugs made him forget who he was.

Odom has been through rehab and says he's clean, sober and back to the old Lamar.

Khloe, of course, has moved on ... she's now with NBA star Tristan Thompson.

And there was also this bizarre exchange about the brothel that almost killed Lamar. He does NOT remember things the way cops and doctors do.

MTV's 'Ridiculousness' Star Steelo Brim's 3-Year-Old Nephew Drowns in His Pool

6/28/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

MTV's "Ridiculousness" star Sterling "Steelo" Brim is mourning the loss of his 3-year-old nephew who drowned in his swimming pool ... TMZ has learned. 

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the boy wandered into the North Hollywood backyard Friday morning when adults weren't looking and fell in the pool. It's unclear how long the boy was in the pool before he was discovered.

We're told paramedics rushed to the house and the child was taken to a nearby hospital. He was pronounced dead just after noon the same day.

We're told the boy's family was visiting Steelo from Chicago. 

The death's been ruled an accidental drowning.

Steelo tells us, "Last weekend, my beloved nephew passed away in a tragic accident. We will miss him dearly and ask for prayers and privacy during this time of mourning."

Brody Jenner Lynched at End of Irv Gotti's 'Tales' ... Get the Point?

6/28/2017 7:07 AM PDT

If the sight of Brody Jenner hanging from a tree shocks the hell out of you ... that's exactly what Irv Gotti intended.

The brutal imagery -- with D'Angelo's 'How Does It Feel' playing over it -- was the closing scene of the Murder Inc. honcho's Tuesday night premiere of "Tales." The movie's theme was based on N.W.A.'s "F**k tha Police" lyrics, but producers flipped the races -- the brutal cops and rich people were black, and white people were the minorities living in the projects.

Gotti thanked Brody for being "totally down" to spread the word -- "The message I was trying to get across. Which by the way. Is a message that what's wrong is wrong."

He added, "So maybe seeing it done to White People. In this FICTIONALIZE piece. And seeing these things done to them. Maybe people will have a lil more compassion when 12 year old Tamir Rice gets gunned down. Or Philando Castillo gets killed for nothing."

Irv talked to us on "TMZ Live" about his goal with the show.

David Guetta Asstonishing Views in Spain Got Him Like ...

6/28/2017 8:04 AM PDT

Smoking hot chicks in bikinis? Check. Vacationing on a baller yacht in Spain? Yup -- and David Guetta's happy ass is enjoying it all.

The EDM superstar DJ grinned ear-to-ear as his drop-dead gorgeous gf, Jessica Ledon, hung all over him during their vacay on the Spanish island of Formentera. Butts weren't the only things popping ... Jessica's sporting some shiny bling on her ring finger.

Unclear if Guetta locked it down, but Jessica looks extremely happy.

Getting filthy in Spain ... it's worked out for David.

'American Idol' Seacrest's Secret ABC Meeting Lionel Richie, Nikki Sixx Targeted as Judges

6/28/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ryan Seacrest met face-to-face in secret with ABC execs this week to hash out their remaining differences, and sources familiar with the situation tell us  he's close to becoming the host of the reboot.

As we first reported, Seacrest had agreed to a salary between $10 and $15 mil, but the hangup was that he wanted an Executive Producer credit but "A.I." execs said no.  We're told they still haven't fully resolved the conflict, but that should happen.  We're hearing the resistance is that Katy Perry wanted the title but couldn't get it, and the network didn't want to ruffle feathers.

TMZ also broke the story 'A.I.' wanted Lionel Richie to join the judges panel, and our sources say it looks like the deal will be made and he'll get somewhere between $3 and $5 million.  

Our sources say 'A.I.' producers and ABC want Nikki Sixx from Motley Crue as the third judge and he will get less than Richie.

TMZ broke the story, 'A.I.' signed Katy Perry for a whopping $25 mil.

 Our sources say when all is said and done, the show will still be on budget ... which is amazing. 

China We Got Asses Too!

6/28/2017 7:58 AM PDT

File this under ... in yo' face, Brazil!! But ya gotta say it in Mandarin.

Yes, China -- communist China -- has its own take on butt competitions. Theirs is called the Women's Beautiful Buttocks contest, and it went down recently in a Shenyang mall.

Of course, Brazil is famous for its annual Miss Bumbum competition -- so some might call the Shenyang showdown a Chinese knockoff. If you don't look too closely ... good replica, right?

If size matters though, y'know where to go ...

John Legend & Chrissy Teigen A Little Bump, A Little Grind, A Little Boob

6/28/2017 7:15 AM PDT

John Legend and Chrissy Teigen were kind of Ricky and Lucy Tuesday night, when she got in the act and then jacked his performance with the help of a nip slip.

John was smooth as silk Tuesday night while singing "Slow Dance." That's when he brought Chrissy up for some slow dancing. It all looked fantastic ... and then the boob -- let's get real, even more fantastic!

Chrissy owned it, and the show went on.

Malia Obama Comes to a Head with Barack

6/28/2017 7:32 AM PDT

Sorry, President Obama ... but Daddy's little girl ain't so little anymore, and might even be dunking on him pretty soon, based on these shots from the family vacay to Indonesia.

The Obamas visited a Buddhist temple Wednesday in Central Java, just west of Bali, and the proof is in the pics ... Malia's a growing young lady! She's now less than a couple inches shy of 44's 6'1" height.

Michelle's 5'11" ... so the genes are strong with this one.

Too bad she doesn't hoop. Malia might mess around and get a triple-double!

Justin Trudeau Spread 'Em!!!

6/28/2017 6:48 AM PDT

Justin Trudeau knows what he's got ... clearly.

The Canadian P.M. posed for the cover of Delta Airlines Sky Mag ... the July issue.

The shot is perfectly framed ... making his crotch the centerpiece. It's a little Sharon Stone "Basic Instinct," a little Michelle Pfeiffer "Dangerous Minds."

By the way ... crotch aside, nice sox.

With Obama out of office, Trudeau has a clear path to the hottest leader in the world. There are really no challengers.  

Think Katie Ledecky in the Olympics.

Paddington Bear Creator Michael Bond Dead at 91

6/28/2017 6:24 AM PDT
Breaking News

Michael Bond -- the creator of the cuddly Paddington Bear that sparked a series of famous children's books -- has died.

Bond's publisher HarperCollins announced the author died Tuesday in his home following a short illness. Bond's first book in 1958 -- "A Bear Called Paddington" -- sparked a hugely popular series of children's books, an animated TV series and, ultimately, the successful 2014 flick.

The books alone were a worldwide phenomenon ... selling more than 35 million copies. There's a sequel slated to be released later this year.

The marmalade-loving, friendly bear who traveled from the "deepest, darkest Peru" to London came about when Bond spotted a lonely teddy bear sitting on a shelf in a shop back in 1956. He called it Paddington because he was living near a station with the same name.

Bond was 91.
