Anthony Weiner Going to Prison for 21 Months

9/25/2017 7:48 AM PDT
Breaking News

Anthony Weiner learned his fate ... he's going to federal lockup for just under 2 years.

The ex U.S. Congressman was sentenced in Manhattan for transferring obscene material to a minor. Prosecutors had recommended a 27-month sentence, and the judge could have given him as much as 10 years ... so the 21 months might be the best possible outcome for Weiner.

However, the judge admonished him repeatedly during sentencing. He said Weiner "has a disease that involves sexual compulsivity; some call it a sex addiction." Weiner wept openly in court during the hearing.

Weiner pled guilty in May to sexting with a 15-year-old girl in North Carolina. In court today, the judge said Weiner still has a chance to contribute to society if he continues getting treatment for his illness.

He will have to register as a sex offender once he gets out, and he'll be under supervised released. He'll also be under a computer Internet monitoring program.

Weiner has to surrender by Nov. 6 to enter prison.

Exclusive Details

Tyga deserves an award for best-timed rebound ever, 'cause he's hooking up with UFC Octagon hottie Arianny Celeste ... fresh off Kylie Jenner's pregnancy news.

Tyga and Arianny were at Universal Studios Saturday night for Halloween Horror Nights. Witnesses tell us they were showing major PDA -- he wrapped his arms around her waist and she was holding onto him walking through the mazes.

We're told they're hanging out but are not exclusive. Maybe he needs a refresher on Arianny's vacay mode pics ... to lock down this relationship.

Perfect way to get over your ex getting knocked up, we're guessing.

Post Malone I'm the Jack Black Of Stage Diving ... Fans Let Him Down Hard!!!

9/25/2017 9:06 AM PDT

A Post Malone fan hilariously apologized for not catching the rapper when he pulled off an awesome stage dive -- because the guy was too damn busy recording the dive with his phone.

Post tweeted about the epic fail at his Sunday night show near St. Louis, comparing his dive to Jack Black's in "School of Rock." He was aiming for something closer to the epic one Lil Uzi Vert did earlier this year.

Didn't take long for someone who had been standing in the front row to post a video of Post actually flying over his head with the caption, "My bad."

As another fan points out ... "you can hear them screaming in fear." Thankfully doesn't look like anyone was hurt. Even more miraculously, doesn't look like Post skipped a beat.

New 'Bachelor' Arie Luyendyk Jr. Hop On, It's Gonna Be a Wild Ride!!!

9/25/2017 8:46 AM PDT

Former pro race car driver and new 'Bachelor' Arie Luyendyk Jr. knows all about the fast lane and looks like he's already in it with one of the chicks from the new season.

The show started shooting last week in L.A., and over the weekend Arie had one of the hopeful ladies hop on his hog for a ride. We'd say the motorcycle date worked like a charm ... because they were spotted making out later in the day. Race car drivers move fast.

BTW, the cop behind them wasn't pulling them over -- just an escort hired by production.

No word on who she is, but she's one of 30 or so. Arie's gonna need to gas up if he's planning to take 'em all on the road.

Ty Dolla $ign, YG Threatened with Lawsuit Over Club Beating

9/25/2017 7:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Looks like Ty Dolla $ign and YG may have allegedly kicked the crap out of the wrong dude, because they're about to be hauled into court.

TMZ has obtained demand letters fired off to the 2 rappers on behalf of a budding Australian soccer star, who claims his career has been sidelined because of the beating.

Nelly Yoa says back in January 2015, Dolla and YG physically assaulted him at Eve Nightclub in Melbourne. As TMZ reported, Yoa claims he was in the VIP area when the rappers and their crew rolled in and tried to shove everyone else out. Yoa refused, and says Dollar and YG began punching and kicking him in the head.

According to the demand letter, Yoa suffered physical and mental injuries, which has prevented him from earning what he says would have been a "substantial income." He says he lost a prospective soccer deal with the Melbourne City Football Club.

The letter is a formality which must be sent before a lawsuit is filed.

We reached out to Dolla and YG ... so far, no word back.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. Breaks with NASCAR Owners ... Approves NFL Protests

9/25/2017 6:43 AM PDT
Breaking News

Not all NASCAR people are siding with Trump -- with Dale Earnhardt Jr. throwing his support behind NFL protesters ... despite several NASCAR owners bashing them. 

After POTUS said NFL owners should fire any "son of a bitch" who takes a knee, two of the most powerful men in NASCAR gave major stamps of approval. 

Richard Petty said, "Anybody that don’t stand up for that ought to be out of the country. Period."

Team owner Richard Childress was asked what he would do if any of his staffers protested the anthem -- "Get you a ride on a Greyhound bus when the national anthem is over."

But Earnhardt -- hands down the most popular NASCAR driver of the last 10 years -- sees things differently ... and weighed in Monday morning with a quote from John F. Kennedy

"All Americans R granted rights 2 peaceful protests," Dale Jr. tweeted. 

"Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable."

As for Trump, POTUS praised the NASCAR community early Monday morning. 

"So proud of NASCAR and its supporters and fans. They won't put up with disrespecting our Country or our Flag - they said it loud and clear!"

Kylie Jenner Pregnancy's a Fuzzy Picture

9/25/2017 7:28 AM PDT

Kylie Jenner's showing alright ... how hard it is to get her baby bump out in public.

Kylie was at her BFF Jordyn Woods' birthday party Sunday night in Malibu. Earlier in the day, Kylie downplayed TMZ's preggo news with a barely-there baby bump pic she posted on Instagram. 

A different story at night because if our eyes aren't deceiving us ... she's opted for the oversized hoodie to hide the bun in the oven. Seems obvious, right? Keyword: seems.

TMZ broke the story ... Kylie's pregnant and bf/rapper Travis Scott is telling friends they're having a girl.

'American Idol' ABC vs. Producers ... Tug of War Over Racial Diversity

9/25/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The folks who are bringing you "American Idol" again are in conflict over racial composition of the judge's panel  ... TMZ has learned.  

Now that Katy Perry is in place and Luke Bryan is just days from signing, ABC and Fremantle, which co-owns the show, are trying to settle on a third judge. Sources connected to the production tell us Fremantle wants Charlie Puth, but ABC believes there must be racial diversity on the panel.

We're told the network continues to have its eye on Lionel Richie, who has been in play for several months. So far, we're told there's a standoff, but someone's gotta blink because they're almost ready to begin filming with the judges.

And this is interesting ... we're told Fremantle has taken a meeting with Troy Carter, a super manager of performers like John Legend, Nelly, Meghan Trainor, Miguel and Gaga. He's also one of the initial, big investors in Spotify.   We're told one of the reasons Carter may be appealing ... if ABC wins on the diversity issue, Carter wouldn't come with as big a price tag as Lionel, and the budget is almost blown. 

Concert for Charlottesville Headliners Perform and Kneel in Defiance of Trump's Words

9/25/2017 7:12 AM PDT

Pharrell Williams, Dave Matthews and Stevie Wonder took a firm stand against President Trump by kneeling during the Charlottesville benefit concert.

Pharrell performed with The Roots at Sunday night's  "A Concert for Charlottesville" ... and made his feelings clear on Trump's "son of a bitch" comment about NFL player protests of the National Anthem.

Matthews, who organized and headlined the show for his hometown, performed with Stevie. When he came onstage, Dave took his hand and they took a knee together. Stevie explained, as he did in NYC on Saturday, why he chose to get down on both knees.

Justin Timberlake, Ariana Grande and Coldplay also performed at the event benefiting victims of the violence in Charlottesville. 

Tom Brady I Certainly Disagree with Trump ... 'Just Divisive'

9/25/2017 6:12 AM PDT
Breaking News

Tom Brady is speaking out against his good friend, Donald Trump -- saying his comments blasting NFL players who protest are "just divisive" and he disagrees with everything POTUS said. 

The Patriots QB appeared on WEEI's "Kirk & Callahan" on Monday and was asked to weigh in on Trump, considering he once had a "Make America Great Again" hat in his locker.

"Yeah, I mean, I certainly disagree with what he said and, you know, thought it was just divisive," Brady said.

He's clearly referring to comments Trump made on Friday night where Trump encouraged NFL owners to fire any "son of a bitch" player who takes a knee.

Brady locked arms in solidarity with his teammates before the Pats vs. Texans game on Sunday -- and explained, "I just want to support my teammates and -- I always thought, I'm never one that says 'Oh, that's wrong,' or 'that's right,' ... but I do believe in what I believe in, and I believe in bringing people together and respect and love and trust, and those are the values that my parents instilled in me."

"I've been blessed to be in a locker room with guys from all over the United States over the course of my career ... I mean, I think one thing about football is it brings so many guys together."

"Guys that you would never have the opportunity to be around. Whether it was in college, and all the way into the pros. And we're all different. And we're all unique. And you know, that's what makes us all so special."

'Narcos' Star Pedro Pascal Show Can't Continue If Cast and Crew Aren't Protected

9/25/2017 6:54 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Narcos" star Pedro Pascal is riding the wave of popularity, yet he says the Netflix show can't go on unless there's a way of protecting cast and crew.

We got Pedro -- who plays DEA agent Javier Peña -- out at LAX Sunday and asked about the respected location scout who was murdered in an area near Hidalgo.

As we reported ... Carlos Muñoz Portal's body was found earlier this month riddled with bullets. Muñoz was scouting in Mexico for season 4 ... where Peña zeroes in on the Mexican drug cartels.

The way Pedro sees it, everyone's a target now, so something has to be done.

EXCLUSIVE

Kevin Hart doesn't have a lock on drama this week -- his ex-wife Torrei's luxury whip was destroyed while she was at work ... TMZ has learned.

Torrei was shooting her new film, "Perfectly Single," this week on location in L.A. She rolled up in her brand new 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLE 43 and parked it on the street. When she came back someone had unleashed their fury on her $70k ride.

Several windows were smashed in, but nothing was stolen. We're told the crew noticed a suspicious white car circling the area for about an hour, and a guy riding by on a bicycle flashed a gun.

Pales in comparison to Kevin's sex tape/extortion scandal ...unless, of course, you're Torrei.

Audrina Patridge Keeps It Civil with Corey Bohan ... During Daughter Pick-Up

9/24/2017 8:01 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Audrina Patridge was cool, calm and collected while meeting up with estranged husband Corey Bohan for the second time in a day -- despite accusing him of domestic violence.

Paps got Audrina picking up her and Corey's 1-year-old daughter, Kirra, after a 7-hour visitation with him. She had come face-to-face with him at the drop off earlier Sunday ... but this time it looks like she actually exchanges words with Corey in close proximity.

Surprisingly, she keeps it together ... even smiling at him at one point. We're told the two met at a local police station for the exchange.

We broke the stories ... Audrina filed for divorce as well as a temporary restraining order against Corey after she says he shoved her while holding Kirra and called her a "f***ing c**t." She also claims he planted cameras to monitor her. He denies planting the cameras.

Regardless, Audrina and Corey seem to be making it work for the sake of the kid.
