Kourtney & Kendall As Good Ass It Gets

5/22/2017 11:09 AM PDT

Kourtney Kardashian and Kendall Jenner are cut from the same cloth ... when it comes to their asses on yachts, that is.

Kourtney and Kendall took a break from the hustle and bustle of the Cannes Film Festival and boarded a yacht in the resort town of Antibes ... which is between Cannes and Nice. Not that geography matters worth a crap ... you're here to see what they're what they're wearing.

Aside from swimwear ... Kourtney showed off her new man, Younes Bendjima -- and had some jet ski time with him and Kendall.

Charlie Sheen Excited, Humbled by Spike in HIV Tests 'Great to Be of Service'

5/22/2017 10:54 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Charlie Sheen's not willing to take all the credit, but understands his HIV diagnosis likely played a huge part in boosting sales of home HIV test kits.

Researchers are calling it the "Sheen Effect," and Charlie was fully aware of the numbers when we saw him Monday morning at a Malibu gas station. By some counts, HIV test sales jumped up to 95% immediately after his 2015 announcement -- and remained as high as 60% up to a month later.

Charlie's take -- "It's exciting, and it's great to be of service at that level." He also explained how his life has not only changed, but has "been elevated in a lot of ways."

We've gotten a lot of wild Charlie clips over the years -- you're familiar -- but this is a remarkably different side.

Motorcycle Racer Nicky Hayden Dead At 35 After Being Hit By Car

Breaking News

Motorcycle racing champ Nicky Hayden is dead at 35 years old ... days after being struck by a car in Italy while riding a bicycle.

Hayden was cycling along the Rimini coast in Italy last Wednesday when he was hit by a vehicle ... sustaining multiple traumatic injuries, including a serious head injury.

N.H. was in the intensive care unit of an Italian hospital ... before succumbing to his injuries.

Hayden -- the 2006 MotoGP champion -- was one of the best motorcycle racers in the world. He rode for the Honda Red Bull team, and was in Italy for a race.

Michael Jackson Estate Hey, Lifetime & Netflix ... Make Your Movies, Just No MJ Tunes

5/22/2017 9:49 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The new Lifetime and Netflix movies about Michael Jackson and his pet monkey, Bubbles, won't feature any of MJ's music if they know what's good for them.

Sources close to Michael Jackson's estate tell TMZ the new flicks, 'Searching for Neverland' and the recently announced animated feature, "Bubbles," are not authorized -- therefore, they're not allowed to use ANY of Michael's materials ... especially his music.

We're told MJ's estate is holding off on legal action for now, but if they hear anything like, oh let's say "Billie Jean," "Thriller," "Beat It," "Rock with You," "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough" or any of his hits ... they'll round up the lawyers.

The reason they're not heading to court now? The estate reps haven't seen the movies. 'Searching for Neverland' drops next week, though, so things could change by Monday.

Here's the real question ... can a movie about Michael Jackson even exist without his music, his videos or his pictures? We think not. Soooo, good luck with that, guys.


Scott Disick Burglary Smells Like Inside Job

5/22/2017 8:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Scott Disick's home was almost certainly broken into by someone who knew him and knew the property ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ -- not that Scott seems the least bit concerned.

Our sources say it appears Sunday's burglary was an inside job, because the crook or crooks knew exactly where the security cameras were before breaking into the house through a backdoor because they moved the cameras so they could enter undetected. After entering, they opened a bunch of drawers.

Cops also believe the burglars knew full well Scott was out of town, appearing at a gig in Vegas for his birthday. It was heavily advertised beforehand.

Scott was back home by Sunday around 9 AM, hanging with friends and rambling incoherently. Seemed like the party was still going from Vegas, and he was NOT sweating the burglary.

The break-in comes almost a year to the day from the time Scott was hit the first time ... someone broke into his home and stole some super expensive watches. Law enforcement tells us Scott believes he knew who did it but didn't want to rat them out.

As for what was taken this time around ... we're told an inventory hasn't been taken yet. 

Katy Perry Scores $25 MILLION Deal For 'American Idol'

5/22/2017 7:48 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Katy Perry is getting a staggering $25 MILLION to judge "American Idol" ... this according to sources familiar with the negotiation.

Multiple sources tell us ABC was desperate to sign a name before the Upfronts last week, when honchos announced she was the lead judge. As one source put it, "Katy had all the leverage. If ABC ended up announcing the show without a judge, they'd be screwed."

TMZ broke a story way back in 2012 that 'A.I.' was trying to get Katy as a judge but she rejected the network's $20 mil offer.

As we reported, ABC tried to get Kelly Clarkson but at the last minute she jumped ship and went to NBC's "The Voice." NBC also snagged Jennifer Hudson.

We're also told ABC is "on the verge" of signing the deal with Ryan Seacrest to host the show. Sources connected with the first run of 'Idol' tell us Ryan was making $15 mil a season at his high point. We're told Jennifer Lopez was also raking in $15 mil a season. So Katy blew them both away.

5/22/2017 6:39 AM PDT
Breaking News

President Trump got slapped down moments after touching down in Israel ... from the First Lady.

Melania and the Prez were walking away from Air Force One Monday after landing in Tel Aviv ... when he reached for her hand, but Melania wasn't having it. 

Who knows why -- perhaps a turbulent flight from Saudi Arabia -- but she definitely was NOT down for any hand-holding.

Trump's "to do" list for this trip just got a little longer:
1. Peace in the Middle East
2. Flowers for Melania

Rudy Giuliani I Believe Trump Over Comey

5/22/2017 7:14 AM PDT

Rudy Giuliani has worked with both Donald Trump and James Comey ... and if push comes to shove over who's telling the truth, Rudy's squarely in Trump's corner.

The former NYC mayor arrived at LAX Sunday, and the photog grilled him hard ... grilled him about the alleged Comey memo, Lindsey Graham's statement the probe is now a criminal investigation, Trump's poll numbers ... the works.

Giuliani didn't flinch ... he's as solid a Trump supporter as they come.

Michael B. Jordan 'Creed' Star Takes a Hit from Burglars

5/22/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Michael B. Jordan is in good company ... with some of the biggest names in Hollywood -- unfortunately what they all have in common is being burglary victims.

Law enforcement sources tell us someone broke into Michael's San Fernando Valley pad a few weeks ago, and made off with an undisclosed amount of cash and jewelry. We're told the burglar got in after smashing a window.

We're told no one was home at the time and it appears to be a random hit. Sources tell us cops are waiting for Michael to give them a full list of the items taken.

The "Creed" star joins the ever growing list of celebs to fall victim -- Alanis Morissette, Emmy Rossum, Nikki Minaj and Jaime Pressly had their homes jacked in recent months ... and, Scott Disick was just hit early Sunday morning

We've reached out to Michael's camp, so far no word back.

Benzino I Cheated ... Throws Self on Sword, Althea Makes Him Squirm

5/22/2017 7:14 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Benzino is begging Althea Eaton for a second chance after she caught him cheating -- and she's open to it, but he will have to pay dearly ... in diamonds!

We got the ex-"Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" stars outside Catch, where Benzino tried pleading his case to Althea asking for her forgiveness. It's sooo humiliating to watch, but sooo entertaining.

Althea eventually names her price, but not before Benzino has to choke down a full crow with a side of humble pie. On the other hand ... it looks like they arrived together, and MIGHT be leaving together. So, maybe Benzino's already working his way out of the doghouse?

Good luck, bro.

Yikes! #Benzino gets aired out by his ex 👀 (Swipe for more)

Bill Cosby Trial Begins and Mum's the Word

5/22/2017 6:07 AM PDT

Bill Cosby will know in a matter of weeks if prison is in his future, because his sexual assault criminal trial begins today.

Jury selection begins Monday, where lawyers on both sides will strategize on how to find 12 jurors and 6 alternates who are sympathetic to their sides ... yes, neither side really wants an impartial jury.

Cosby faces up to 10 years behind bars if he's convicted of drugging and sexually assaulting former Temple University women's basketball director Andrea Constand.

Scores of women have come out of the woodwork, claiming the comedian drugged and/or sexually assaulted them. Prosecutors wanted to call 13 women to testify, trying to prove an MO on Cosby's part. The judge ruled only 1 of the 13 could testify.

As for Cosby, he won't take the stand. He's said he fears he might say something off the cuff that could open a "can of something."
