Famously eccentric designer Betsey Johnson is bringing her brand of crazy to "Dancing with Stars" ... along with the much younger YouTube fashionista Bethany Mota.
As we told you ... ABC had been looking to sign a big social media star ... and found her in 18-year-old Mota ... who's amassed more than 7 million fans with her YouTube tutorials on fashion, hair and makeup.
Sources close to the show tell us ... producers have also tapped "Back to the Future" actress Lea Thompson, Jonathan Bennett from "Mean Girls," Janel Parrish from "Pretty Little Liars," and Sadie Robertson -- granddaughter of "Duck Dynasty" star Phil Robertson.
Still missing ... a major Hollywood star.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie
8/28/2014 5:51 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have finally made it official ... they got married!
In typical Brangelina fashion, it happened very under the radar. In fact ... they did the deed last weekend in France, according to a spokesman for the couple.
They were married in a small private ceremony at Chateau Miraval, which they own. Jolie was walked down the aisle by her oldest sons Pax and Maddox, while Zahara and Vivienne threw petals and Shiloh and Knox served as ring bearers.
Pitt apparently went right back to work after the wedding ... he was seen on Thursday promoting his next movie and wearing a new ring on his ring finger.
The two had said they wouldn't get married until "everyone else in the country" had the right to get married. Guess they jumped the gun a little ...
Jay Z Divorce Rumors
Are Just a 'Jedi Mind Trick'
8/28/2014 6:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Mathew Knowles thinks the Beyonce/Jay Z divorce rumors ... and even the infamous Solange elevator fight video ... were both carefully orchestrated by the duo to drive up ticket sales.
Beyonce's dad was on KRBE in Houston where he theorized all the recent turmoil around the couple was simply a "Jedi mind trick" they orchestrated as a way to make their summer tour super popular.
He explained, "All I know is the Jedi mind trick. Everyone’s talking about it. Ticket sales went up. Solange’s album sales went up 200%!"
Worth mentioning ... Knowles hasn't managed Beyonce for years ... so maybe he's right about all this, but maybe he isn't.
'Cops' Shootout Suspect
Family Compares Omaha to Ferguson
Police Were Showing Off
8/28/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Omaha police officers were running and gunning to make compelling TV when they sprayed bullets at an armed robbery suspect, killing him and a 'Cops' crewman ... so claims the dead suspect's family.
TMZ spoke with one of Cortez Washington's relatives ... who believes the officers used excessive force Tuesday night -- and were "hyped up" to put on a good show when they responded to the Wendy's.
As we reported ... 'Cops' sound supervisor Bryce Dion died after getting hit by friendly fire from Omaha PD during the shootout with Washington -- who was holding a Wendy's employee at gun point.
Washington's firearm turned out to be a pellet gun -- modeled after a real semi-automatic pistol -- and his family thinks officers should have recognized it wasn't a lethal weapon before they unloaded more than 20 rounds. One family member told us, "With everything going on in Ferguson, you think they would use other options."
The relative also said they don't buy Omaha PD's claim Cortez started the shootout by firing two rounds.
Omaha cops say they were not grandstanding for cameras ... maintaining they responded to the robbery with proper protocol ... and engaged Cortez because he pointed and fired his weapon at them.

Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union are sealing the deal on their super secret wedding with a contract that demands everyone remain totally silent about what they see that day... and violators will be dealt with harshly!
We've obtained a copy of the confidentiality agreement drawn up for D-Wade and Gabby -- we're told relatives, guests, vendors, caterers ... in short, everybody ... will have to sign it before setting foot in the wedding.
TMZ Sports broke the story ... guests have already been told not to bring cell phones or cameras to the wedding this Saturday in South Florida.
The doc goes even further ... warning that ANYTHING seen or heard at the wedding is confidential information that must be kept secret -- including any personal info or financial details.
According to the agreement, violators will pay a hefty cash fine for unspecified damages.
Hmm ... a room full of Hollywood celebs and superstar athletes -- who would ever talk?
Mariah & Adele
Top Colosseum Wish List
As Celine Bows Out
8/28/2014 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Mariah Carey could pull a Britney Spears by taking her kids to Vegas and pulling down a huge paycheck to do shows there -- as Caesars Palace eyes huge new names to put on it's marquee.
TMZ has learned the Colosseum -- where Celine Dion has had a residency for years -- would love to sign soon-to-be single Mariah for a very lucrative weekend engagement. Our sources say the offer that went out was $750k for two shows!
We're told the Colosseum's operator, AEG is targeting a bunch of other heavy hitters too, including ... Adele, Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert, Prince, and Bruce Springsteen.
Comedians Chris Rock and Chelsea Handler -- who both sell out bigger arenas than the Colosseum which seats about 4,300 -- are also wanted.
We're told this dream list was put together long before Celine's recent announcement she was taking a leave of absence until next spring to be with her ailing husband.
As it turns out, there will be plenty of open dates to fill. So far no one's signed on the dotted line.
Those Aren't Playmates ...
They're Trashy Escorts!!
8/28/2014 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Playboy is trying to shut down a Canadian escort service for calling their chicks-for-hire "Playmates" -- a term Playboy says is legally reserved for its "girl next door" types ... not hookers.
Playboy blasts PleasurePlaymates.com in a new lawsuit, claiming the bunny brand is being tarnished because Hef's girls have a more wholesome appeal ... according to court docs obtained by TMZ.
Playboy wants the escort company to turn over the URL.
In the docs, Playboy says escort services are known for "illicit activity" -- a pretty strong insinuation Pleasure Playmates hires prostitutes -- while its centerfolds are "classy and sophisticated."
We've reached out to Pleasure Playmates several times ... strictly professionally ... but haven't been able to get through to anyone.

Just $750/Month for Kid

Congratulations, Corey Feldman -- you're the winner of the smallest celebrity divorce settlement we've seen this year.
According to court docs, Corey and his ex, Susannah -- who've been legally separated since 2009 -- just finalized their divorce ... and he'll be paying her $750 a month in child support for their 10-year-old son.
By comparison ... Charlie Sheen pays more than $100K a month to Denise Richards and Brooke Mueller -- and Eddie Murphy reportedly shells out $60K per month.
Also by comparison ... Corey Feldman hasn't had the success of Charlie or Eddie.
Susannah also gets the couple's 2002 Hyundai ... while he gets their 2001 Mercedes.
In the docs, Susannah agrees to give back the Feldman name, and return to her maiden name ... Sprague. We're guessing she agreed to that pretty quickly.
