Taylor Swift Judge Seals Groping Photo

10/21/2016 11:59 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1021-taylor-swift-tmzTaylor Swift just got what she wanted from a judge, who agreed with her that the photo of a DJ allegedly groping her at a concert will be kept from the public until the case goes to trial.

Taylor filed legal docs, claiming the photo was inappropriate for public consumption because it would merely engender "scandalous" and "prurient" behavior and make it hard to find an impartial jury.

The judge ruled, "The widespread dissemination of this image might significantly complicate jury selection."

Taylor had also asked to restrict access to other evidence, but she lost that bid. The judge said all the other stuff is "entirely ordinary and mundane."

Breaking News

Ladies and gentlemen, please rise for the President of the Un ... BILL MURRAY

Bill took over the podium in the White House's press briefing room on Friday -- but instead of talking politics, he was all about the NLCS ... and explained why the Dodgers are doomed. 

Oh yeah, he happens to be a HUGE Chicago Cubs fan -- hence the pullover -- and warned Clayton Kershaw that his boys from Chi-Town are just too dominant for him.

It's funny stuff ... Hail to the Ghostbuster.

Elon Musk Strikes 2nd Divorce Settlement

10/21/2016 11:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Elon Musk and his on-again-off-again-on-again-off-again wife have settled their divorce case ... TMZ has learned.

Elon and Talulah Riley submitted legal docs Wednesday informing the judge they have reached a full settlement in their divorce case. As we reported, Talulah filed for divorce in March. Elon had previously filed on New Year's Eve 2014, but withdrew his petition 6 months later.

This will end their second marriage. They tied the knot the first time in 2010 but divorced 2 years later.

Sources connected with the couple tell us it was amicable. They have no kids together. As for property, we know they had a prenup, which is no shock.

Elon's net worth is estimated at $11.5 billion. When Elon filed in 2014, his rep said he had agreed to pay her $16 mil ... but again, that divorce was withdrawn. We're guessing that may have gone up in the last 2 years.

As we reported, Elon and Amber Heard were hanging out a lot during the summer, but they haven't been seen together recently.

The judge has yet to sign the docs to officially make Elon and Talulah single.

According to docs ... Stevie will also have to wear a GPS monitor, provide notification before all travel and speaking of that -- he can't leave the U.S. of A.

TMZ broke the story ... Stevie was indicted for failing to pay $1.1 million in child support.

Taylor Swift My Groping Pics Will Get People Off Don't Release Them!

10/21/2016 6:33 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1021-taylor-swift-david-mueller-tmz-twitter-01Taylor Swift thinks the pics of a DJ allegedly groping her will get people all hot and bothered ... so much so she wants the judge in the case to seal them.

Taylor made the pitch in legal docs in her lawsuit against radio DJ David Mueller ... claiming the release of the pics would "be shared for scandalous and prurient interests."

That's short for ... the press will have a field day with this stuff ... and folks will get super aroused.

Taylor thinks the release of the pics would create unfairness against her ... to the point of influencing a jury pool, saying, "the interest in a fair and impartial trial outweigh any public interest in access to the documents identified above."

You'll recall ... Mueller originally sued Taylor last year, saying he was fired after she publicly claimed he groped her backstage in 2013 at one of her concerts. Taylor countersued ... saying he absolutely did. 

In her docs, Taylor calls the pics "extremely personal and sensitive."

Donald Trump & Hillary Clinton Famous Boobs at Roast Steal Show ... Totally by Accident

Exclusive Details

1021-Maria-Bartiromo-donald-trump-cnnWhile Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton went HAM on each other during the NYC roast/charity dinner ... they were also getting upstaged by a pair of famous boobs that were expertly placed.

The Internet was rightfully distracted by Maria Bartiromo's cleavage, which was in every shot behind the candidates at the Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner. Organizers of the event tell us it was no mistake the FOX Business host was umm ... prominently displayed.

We're told the 70 people on the 5-tier dais were assigned seats to balance out people from politics, media, business and philanthropy. Obviously, Maria checks the media and business boxes.

Despite all visual evidence, we're told she did NOT get the prime seat due to her fame, or her dress. Sooo ... we just got lucky.

Donald Sterling Hotline Bling With Mystery Blonde

1021-donald-sterling-blonde-akm-01Donald Sterling went looking for stuff older than he is -- but he did it with a chick quite a bit younger than him.

The 82-year-old ex-Clippers owner was cruising antique shops in Bev Hills Thursday with a hot blonde on his arm and his best b-boy vest on his back. Looks like he got some smartphone lessons too. 

Seems too little too late for Sterling to embrace hip-hop culture, but if you're gonna do it, Donald -- try the red down jacket next time, dawg. Just sayin' ...

Brad Pitt I'm Not Answering Angelina's Divorce For the Sake of Our Kids

10/21/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1020-brad-pitt-angelina-joile-tmz-01Brad Pitt will not file a legal response to Angelina Jolie's divorce petition because it would set the stage for a nasty legal battle ... and he fears it would cause great psychological damage to their kids.

Brad's legal answer was supposed to be filed Wednesday, but the deadline came and went. Sources close to the case tell us ... Brad wants joint legal and physical custody, but if he actually filed papers it would draw the battle lines. Angelina wants sole physical custody, setting up a possible custody war.

Angelina could set the wheels in motion for a default judgment since Brad hasn't answered her petition, but we're told that is not going to happen. She agrees ... healing the family is the priority, not starting a war.

There's something else here at play. The L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services is still investigating the airplane confrontation between Brad and 15-year-old Maddox, and Brad will be in a much stronger position if DCFS closes the case before he files his answer.

Our sources also say there's a chance the whole divorce case could settle privately without any dueling divorce docs. And, we're told, on that goal both Angelina and Brad agree.
