'Big Bang' Star Johnny Galecki Home Burns Down in Massive Fire

6/27/2017 4:54 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Big Bang Theory" star Johnny Galecki's ranch burned to the ground Monday night in a huge fire in San Luis Obispo ... TMZ has learned.

It's Johnny's getaway place ... 190 miles from L.A. The ranch was torched along with other property in the 1,200 acre fire, that's now 40% contained. We're told the area is secure and no one can enter for now ... the road is closed.

Our sources say Johnny hasn't seen the property since it burned down, and plans to show up when he gets the all clear ... so he can salvage anything that was spared.

Johnny tells TMZ, "My heart goes out to all in the area who are also experiencing loss from this vicious fire, the threat of which we live with constantly, which may seem crazy to some but we do so because living in our beautiful, rural area makes it worthwhile."

Johnny goes on ... "It's never the structures that create a community -- it's the people. And if the people of Santa Margarita have taught me anything it's that, once the smoke has cleared, literally and figuratively, it's a time to reach out and rebuild."

And he says, "We've done it before, and will need to do it together again, and it will make our community even closer and stronger. Endless thanks to CalFire and the Sheriff's Office. I know you guys are fighting the good fight to keep us safe. So very relieved no one has been hurt."

Offset Migos-Chris Brown Fight All About Money & Haters

6/27/2017 4:25 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Chris Brown just ain't on the same level as Migos ... at least according to Offset, who says he's not sweating the fight they got into with Chris after the BET Awards.

We got Offset Tuesday on Rodeo and asked him what really set off the melee. There's obvious speculation it was about Quavo dating Breezy's ex, Karrueche Tran. Offset didn't exactly deny that when he blamed it on a "whole lotta paper, whole lotta haters, man."

But you gotta see what happened when we asked if he's got a message for Chris.

He also had an awesome reaction to the other BET weekend fight -- Meek Mill and Safaree. #LMFAO

'Bachelor in Paradise' Producers Must Approve Before ... Contestants Get it On

6/27/2017 3:32 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Bachelor in Paradise" contestants who want to have sex must wait a beat and get permission from producers ... TMZ has learned.

Sources at the Mexican resort where the show is being filmed tell TMZ there are new rules in place regarding sex ... especially in "The Boom Boom Room" -- where most indoor sex goes down.

We're told before anyone can get it on, both parties must go to a producer and state that they consent. If the producer feels either party is incapable of giving consent, the producer can pull the plug.

We're told when contestants arrived over the weekend, they sat through a 2-hour meeting with lawyers and others who ran through all the rules.

And get this ... if contestants violate the rule and go right into "The Boom Boom Room," producers can barge in and stop things mid-coitus.

TMZ broke the story ... Warner Bros. implemented new rules as part of the show's reboot, including handing over all drugs -- legal or not -- and a 2-drink maximum per hour.

The policies come on the heels of a sexual misconduct investigation which ultimately concluded there was no wrongdoing between DeMario Jackson and Corinne Olympios.

Bill Cosby Calls Sexual Assault Town Hall Meetings 'Propaganda'

6/27/2017 1:38 PM PDT

Bill Cosby just lashed out in the most bizarre way, saying reports that he's conducting town hall meetings on sexual assault are just "propaganda" ... despite the fact his P.R. people announced the meetings.

Cosby just said, "The current propaganda that I am going to conduct a sexual assault tour is false any further information about public plans will be given at the appropriate time."

Here's the problem ... Cosby's spokespeople, Andrew Wyatt and Ebonee Benson came on "TMZ Live" Thursday and said the town halls would absolutely take place. We even questioned them about statements Cosby might make that could be used against him in his sexual assault retrial, and they said Cosby's lawyers didn't have a problem with it -- that they would coach him on what to say and not say.

Wyatt and Benson made similar comments the day before on "Good Day Alabama."

Ron White's Wife Files for Divorce With a Twist

6/27/2017 1:18 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Nothing funny about this ... Ron White's wife is tapping out of their marriage, and it looks like the length of their union will be a major point of contention.

Margo Rey filed divorce docs last week in Los Angeles ... saying they've been separated since May 8. They got married in October 2013 ... and have no children.

Now, here's what's interesting -- in the docs Margo says she and Ron had a common law marriage in Texas since 2008 ... long before they officially tied the knot. In Texas, a couple can be considered married in the eyes of the law if they live together as husband and wife and hold themselves out in public as a married couple.

Margo says she wants Ron to pay spousal support. It's likely she raised the common law issue so the marriage would pre-date 2013 by 5 years, thus entitling her to more spousal support.

We've reached out to Ron's camp ... no word back yet.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders Clashes with Reporter Over 'Fake News'

6/27/2017 1:41 PM PDT

Sarah Huckabee Sanders went on the attack over "fake news" -- citing the CNN debacle -- then got raked over the coals by a White House reporter.

The Deputy White House Press Secretary chastised CNN over its retracted story ... which connected a Trump aide to a Russian investment fund. She started attacking the media in general too, and that's when The Sentinel reporter Brian Karem went off.

Tensions are clearly running high after 3 CNN staffers resigned  -- and one of its producers was caught on hidden camera saying their Russia coverage is just for ratings.

EXCLUSIVE

Rihanna's getting along swimmingly with a guy we're hearing might be her new boyfriend ... and it couldn't be clearer they can't keep their hands off each other.

RiRi and the guy -- we don't know who -- were making out in a pool ... and all over each other for sure.

The pics were taken in Spain on Monday, where it appears she's vacationing with him. They're staying in a posh villa.

She was a no-show at the BET Awards ... she clearly had a better offer.

Bernie Madoff Sons' Estates to Fork Over $23 Mil Worth of Ill-Gotten Cash

6/27/2017 1:23 PM PDT
Breaking News

Bernie Madoff's family is not done paying back the money he scammed from thousands of investors.

The estates of Bernie's late sons -- Mark and Andrew -- have agreed to forfeit $23 million in money they acquired through years of their dad's infamous Ponzi scheme. It's part of a deal struck with Irving Picard, who's responsible for recovering cash for Madoff's victims.

Both sons died years ago -- Mark of a suicide in 2010, and Andrew of cancer in 2014. Neither was ever charged in connection to their father's crimes. After the payback, their estates will still reportedly be worth $1.75 mil for Mark, and $2 mil for Andrew.

Bernie is currently serving a 150-year federal prison sentence in North Carolina for pleading guilty to 11 federal felonies in March 2009.

Nicki Minaj Meek, Safaree Who? I'm Moving On with Nas!

6/27/2017 11:53 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Nicki Minaj couldn't care less about her 2 exes' drama over BET weekend ... 'cause she's got a new hip-hop king to occupy her mind.

Sources close to Nicki tell TMZ she hasn't batted an eyelash over news Meek Mill might have ordered his goons to jump her other ex, Safaree. And the reason is simple ... Nas.

We're told Nicki doesn't feel anything about the fight, mostly 'cause it's not her problem ... and both of those dudes are in her rearview. More importantly ... she's happily moving on with her new man, Mr. Jones ... although it's still in the early stages.

Only KINGS recognize QUEENS. @sweetchicklife has the best food 👅 congrats @nas 😜

A post shared by Nicki Minaj (@nickiminaj) on

As we reported ... Safaree challenged Meek to a 1-on-1 fight after he claimed Meek orchestrated the attack on him. Meek denies that.

Either way, the bottom line here ... Nicki's over both Meek and Safaree, and their beef is theirs alone. 

Somewhere, she and Nas are playing the Counting Crows -- looking deep into each other's eyes.

Piers Morgan CNN Cut Corners to Bash Trump ... It Came Back to Bite Them

6/27/2017 11:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Piers Morgan's not bashing CNN for going after huge ratings with stories about President Trump and Russia, but thinks their Prez-bashing is dangerous journalism ... and led to embarrassment.

Piers, Editor-at-Large of Dailymail.com, tells TMZ he's not surprised CNN is now in trouble over an undercover vid coming out suggesting its Trump/Russia coverage is BS ... because they've been pushing the narrative too hard for too long.

The TV personality says CNN's obsessed with the story because it's been their moneymaker -- and they want it to be true -- but now they're paying the price for recklessness.
