No Parents Were Invited to My Daughter's Wedding
10/5/2015 1:21 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Tom Cruise did not go to his daughter's wedding, but we found out he was nobody special, because none of the parents -- on either side -- were invited.
There are reports Tom snubbed 22-year-old Bella, who married Max Parker last month. Sources connected with Tom and Bella tell TMZ, she and Max wanted a super small wedding in London with a few friends and that was it ... no parents were invited.
We're told Tom was not only cool with the decision, he footed the bill for the wedding and party at the fancy schmancy Dorchester hotel.
Some media reports suggest Tom stayed away because Max is not a Scientologist. We're told that was never an issue. We're told Tom and Max get along well ... Max and Bella spent Thanksgiving and XMAS with Tom.
My Alleged Stalker
Brought Me Flowers
10/5/2015 12:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Charlize Theron says an unexpected floral delivery turned into a nightmare when a guy refused to leave until he saw her face-to-face ... so she called the cops.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ a man showed up at Theron's home in the Hollywood Hills on Sunday afternoon with a bouquet of flowers.
We're told he rang the buzzer at the front gate and Charlize instructed him to "just leave them," but she claims he refused to take off.
Charlize called police, and the guy got arrested for stalking.
'Jersey Shore' Vinny Guadagnino
Calling All Haters ...
Come Buy My 'Washed Up' Lambo
10/5/2015 1:49 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
"Jersey Shore" alum Vinny Guadagnino doesn't care if people think he's a washed-up reality star desperate for cash ... he's unloading his white 2013 Lamborghini Gallardo on eBay.
Vinny posted a pic of the whip with the message, "Attention rich people! I'm selling my car ... I know I know what you haters want to comment, 'reality star, washed up, broke, need money, etc..' Feel free to!"
It's unclear if he's really strapped for cash or just cleverly wording his post to generate buzz ... like a good used car salesman would.
Starting bid is $169k and so far ... no takers, but there's still a week to go. If Vinny's pitch doesn't net a buyer, perhaps the mileage will -- he's only logged 1,190 miles!
Musk, Favreau & Rubin
I Got The Tab ...
No, I Got It ... No, I Do ...
10/5/2015 12:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
This is the ultimate power lunch -- a table for three with the guy who co-created Def Jam, the guy who directed "Iron Man" and the guy trying to colonize Mars.
Favreau has mentioned his friendship with the SpaceX and Tesla Motors CEO in the past, saying he based "Iron Man's" Tony Stark on Musk. No word on how they both know Rubin, but there is a Def Jam film in the works.
Just how powerful was this meal? Check their reported net worth stats: Rubin, $250 Million ... Favreau, $60 Million ... and Elon Musk, $13.2 BILLION!
So, who picked up the check? The correct answer is: It doesn't matter.
I'm No Homophobe
... I Just Hate 'Empire'
10/5/2015 10:21 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
50 Cent just learned why it's important to get the full story ... after he shared a homophobic post about "Empire" ... but he didn't read the whole thing.
A rep for 50 tells TMZ the rapper reposted a photo to his Instagram making fun at the show's decline in ratings ... but he missed the part about the drop in ratings being due to the show's "gay stuff."
50's rep says he deleted the post once he saw the homophobic comments attached to it. The rep says the comments were "not a reflection of his views at all."
50 has been beefing with the show for a while now ... mostly because he says it's inferior to his show "Power." It doesn't help that "Empire" singled him out during the season 2 premiere episode.

I Got No Beef With Chris Brown
... He's So Below Me
10/5/2015 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Beckford hosted a party in Atlantic City over the weekend and took a passive aggressive approach at squashing their beef. The two exchanged threats back in May after Beckford posted a pic with Brown's ex, Karrueche Tran.
Beckford's reason for waving the white flag now -- "At 38,000 ft, I can't hear what you're saying on the sidewalk."
He didn't stop there ... "When you're someone who's at my level and you realize someone else is not really all there, you just say, 'You know what, I'm just gonna let you slide because I realize you're not all there.'"
Tyson loves ending feuds. He just has a funny way of showing it.
Travis Barker Is Really ...
Rubbing Off On Me
10/5/2015 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The new couple rolled out of bed Sunday for brunch in West Hollywood, and it looks like she went shopping ... in his closet. Barker's grungier style is clearly rubbing off on the "Black Widow" singer, who usually opts for less cover up.
As we told you, they've been inseparable since first hooking up at a charity basketball event last month ... she's even been staying at his West L.A. home every night.
They say the couple that dresses together ... spends less on clothing. That's all.

Caleb Logan Bratayley
13-Year-Old YouTube Star
10/5/2015 9:04 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Caleb Logan Bratayley seemed like a perfectly healthy 13-year-old one hour -- and the next ... the YouTube star was dead, and the only explanation so far is he suffered a "medical emergency."
Caleb -- whose family has racked up more than a billion YouTube views -- died Thursday night in Maryland. Law enforcement sources tell us a 911 call was placed at 7 PM, and police and fire responded to the family's home.
We're told Caleb was transported to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
It is a puzzling death because he's only 13. When the family announced the tragedy they only said he "passed away of natural causes." Our sources say it was not suicide, there were no drugs, and there is no history of drug use. The 911 call was for a "medical emergency."
The coroner will conduct an autopsy as part of its investigation.

Birdman Screwed Over Drake, Nicki and Tyga Too
10/5/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Lil Wayne now claims in his bitter lawsuit against Birdman and Cash Money, he has letters from Drake and Tyga's people claiming they got stiffed out of a fortune. And Nicki's people say in a separate letter her producers also got shortchanged by Young Money, and Wayne says it's Cash Money's responsibility to pay producers.
As you know, Lil Wayne runs Young Money, whose stable of artists include Drake, Nicki and Tyga. Cash Money is the parent company of Young Money, and Birdman is the big boss.
The allegations of Cash Money's financial shenanigans are massive. Young Money claims it was supposed to get a big chunk of a $100 million advance from Universal -- an advance that went directly to Cash Money -- and they're still waiting.
But Cash Money says Wayne and company are full of it. They gave him a $20 million advance for Young Money in 2012, another $12 million for Wayne's solo album and another $70 million in advances, royalties, marketing and recording costs for various Young Money artists.
Cash Money claims in the docs if anyone is a slacker it's Wayne ... he was supposed to deliver 21 albums over 7 years for his artists and only anted up 13.

Kylie Jenner is all about the family biz, which apparently now requires all the sisters to rep HARD for Adidas ... at all times.
Ever since big sis Khloe Kardashian's BF James Harden signed a $200 million dollar deal with Adidas -- Khloe AND Kylie have been sporting the gear constantly. It also can't hurt that the company cranks out Kanye West's Yeezys too.
Sooo ... Adidas: outfitting hoops superstars, NCAA teams, rappers and Kardashian asses everywhere.
They're gonna need a lot more material.
