Kim & Kanye Attend North's Fashion Show ... Saint Gets Emotional

7/13/2018 5:10 PM PDT
Exclusive Details

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West paid a little extra attention to North on Friday ... but Saint made it clear he was not to be forgotten.

The proud parents went to their 5-year-old daughter's fashion show at a design camp she's been attending with a friend, where the kids get to design their own dresses and clothing. We're told Friday was the big show for the kids to reveal their designs to their moms and dads.

As you can see ... North's is stylin'!

Our sources say Kourtney also came to the show with her kids Mason and Penelope ... we're told Kim and Kanye took the whole crew out to eat at Carasoul after to celebrate. 

It's unclear what caused Saint's display of emotion as the family was leaving the show ... but we're going to guess it must have been the beauty of his big sister's design.

Yeah, that has to be it.

Mac Miller 'Self Care' Single Not About Split With Ariana

7/13/2018 5:23 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Mac Miller's new song is seemingly about relationship troubles, but it has nothing to do with his split with Ariana Grande ... TMZ has learned. 

Mac dropped "Self Care" Friday ... a single with lyrics that include, "Well, didn't know what I was missing. Now I see a lil' different. We play it cool. We know we f***ed up, yeah. You keep on sayin' you in love, so? Tell me are you really down?"

Fans and reports were quick to connect the lyrics to Mac's split with Ariana a couple months ago. However, our sources say Mac wrote, produced and completed the track last year. 

As we've reported -- Ariana is engaged to SNL comedian Pete Davidson -- the two even went in on a massive NYC condo together. 

No word on a wedding date. 

'Young Sheldon' Star Could Be a Millionaire After Season 2!!!

7/13/2018 5:46 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The kid who plays the young version of "The Big Bang Theory" character Sheldon Cooper is getting a big boost to his bank account ... thanks to the huge success of the CBS spin-off.

According to Iain Armitage's "Young Sheldon" contract -- obtained by TMZ -- the star of the show got $30,000 for every episode in Season 1 ... which ended up being 22 strong after a stellar ratings debut scored it a full-season order.

Do the math, and that's $660k for Young Sheldon.

It gets better, though -- the show's been renewed for Season 2, which premieres in September, and will likely be another 22 eps. According to his contract, he'll get a pay bump to $31,200 per ep. for the second season ... which comes out to more than a $26k raise.

That's roughly $1.35 MILLION for Iain for 2 seasons of TV work.

And if season 3 happens, it's the same deal for Sheldon -- more eps. for more money ... $32,448 a pop.

Sure beats a paper route.

Billy Bush Wife Files for Divorce

7/13/2018 4:42 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Billy Bush's wife has filed for divorce ... TMZ has learned. 

Sydney Davis filed legal docs to end their marriage, citing irreconcilable differences.

Sydney is asking for joint legal and primary physical custody of 13-year-old Lillie and 17-year-old Mary. Josie, their oldest daughter, is an adult. Billy will get visitation, according to her documents.

As for spousal support ... Sydney wants it. FYI ... in addition to other assets, Billy scored many millions in a settlement when he left "Today."

The couple separated last September ... nearly a year after the infamous "Access Hollywood" bus audio in which Billy laughed at Donald Trump's grotesque comments about women. He was fired from his anchor job at "Today" shortly after the audio became public.

Billy and Sydney were married in 1998.

Grimes Gets Protection from Guy in a Cape ... He's No Superhero!!!

7/13/2018 4:33 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Grimes had a bizarre, unwanted visitor show up in her backyard -- wearing a cape, no less -- and now the man's been ordered to stay away from her.

According to new legal docs ... the singer and reported girlfriend of Elon Musk had an intruder at her home on July 10 named Raymond Barrajas. He allegedly scaled a hill at the back of her house while wearing a weird costume and carrying 3 computer mice.

The docs say he yelled out that he needed to see Grimes so he could "take her on a ride." She wasn't home, but her brother was and called 911. When cops arrived, Barrajas was still in the backyard and was yelling, "I'm a black man, shoot me."

According to the docs ... he was taken into custody and placed on a psychiatric hold. Grimes is worried the man has a delusional fixation on her and that he believes she is sending him messages through her music ... so she went to court to get protection from him.

He's now been ordered to stay 100 yards away from her, her brother, 2 friends and her pet.

NBA's Tyler Ulis Crazy '17 Elevator Beatdown ... With Devin Booker

7/13/2018 1:51 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

NBA player Tyler Ulis was attacked and beat up by 2 guys in an apartment elevator fight in 2017 ... until his friend, Devin Booker, came to the rescue ... and TMZ Sports has the footage.

It all went down in Tempe, AZ on May 26 while Ulis was still playing for the Phoenix Suns. We're told Tyler was trying to hold the elevator for his friends when another group of guys tried to get on.

When Tyler continued to hold it ... they took offense and a scuffle broke out. One guy grabbed Tyler while another man put him in a headlock. The fight spilled out of the elevator and into the hallway.

A short time later, Ulis' friends -- including Suns superstar Booker -- took the elevator to the scene of the fight and found the men who attacked Ulis. Another fight broke out, Ulis threw punches.

Booker -- who covered his face with a bandana -- does not appear to hit anyone.

Eventually, the 2 groups get down to the lobby ... where another man from Ulis' crew (wearing a black shirt) chases their adversaries out of the building and punches one of the guys in the face.

You can see Booker chasing after the other men into the street.

We're told police were called to the scene, but ultimately no arrests were made.

A source close to the Suns administration tells us, "While these guys know they are always potential targets for others trying to cause trouble, it's hard to blame them for defending their friend who is on the bad end of a 4 on 1 attack."

Donald Trump Jr. And GF Kimberly Guilfoyle PDA in France

7/13/2018 1:30 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Donald Trump Jr. laid one on his gf, Kimberly Guilfoyle, while vacationing in the South of France ... the first time they've put on any PDA in public.

Jr. and gf K.Grelaxed at Nikki Beach in St. Tropez Friday ... where it looks like he mostly went unnoticed under his straw hat and sunglasses.

Can't blame the dude for wanting to keep a low profile overseas with all the protests in England over his dad's visit.

The couple snuggled up on a couch by the pool and Don also took a hit of a hookah, which we're guessing was filled with tobacco ... then again, who knows?

The FOX News host and Prez's son have been dating for a while now. His wife, Vanessa, filed for divorce in March but says she has no issues over her estranged hubby's new romance.

The rapper's been granted bail and, once he pays $150k, he'll be released -- but there's a string attached. He MUST surrender Monday in Harris County, TX to pay $5,000 bail there.

As we reported, Tekashi was going to be held in NYC until July 20, when Texas officials planned to extradite him.

We're told he'll be released once his $150k bail payment is processed.

Harvey Weinstein Denies Saying He Traded Acting Gigs For Sex

7/13/2018 11:25 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Harvey Weinstein says an article in "The Spectator" which just came out -- purportedly quoting him as saying he traded acting roles for sex -- is bogus, and the reporter who wrote the story seems to admit it.

The article says Weinstein told the reporter, "I was born poor, ugly, Jewish and had to fight all my life to get somewhere ... no girl looked at me until I made it big in Hollywood. Yes I did offer them acting jobs in exchange for sex, but so did and still does everyone. But I never, ever forced myself on a single woman."

The article says Weinstein's lawyer, Ben Brafman, was present during the interview.

Brafman says he was present, but that's not what his client said. Brafman says, "Harvey and Taki [the reporter] did not discuss the case, nor would I allow him to. They talked about old Hollywood and the contrast to European culture and I think Taki sees Harvey in that older light. Mr. Weinstein never said anything about trading movie roles for sexual favors."

Weinstein's people also reached out to Taki, who they say copped to lies in the story. Taki's statement is a retraction, saying, "I believe that I may have misrepresented Harvey Weinstein's conversation with me. It was my mistake."

Scarlett Johansson Withdraws from Trans Movie Amid Backlash

7/13/2018 11:57 AM PDT

Scarlett Johansson has decided to back out of the film "Rub and Tug" after receiving some serious criticism for taking the role of the lead character ... who is a transgender person.

Johansson tells "Out" magazine ... "In light of recent ethical questions raised surrounding my casting as Dante Tex Gill, I have decided to respectfully withdraw my participation in the project."

She adds ... “Our cultural understanding of transgender people continues to advance, and I’ve learned a lot from the community since making my first statement about my casting and realize it was insensitive."

Scarlett admits she would have loved to play the role of Dante, but understands why people were upset by her being cast and feel he should be played by a transgender person.

This is a pretty big reversal from when the controversy first broke a couple of weeks ago, and her rep suggested it was unfair to blast Johansson for taking the role when other actors -- like Jeffrey Tambor, Jared Leto and Felicity Huffman -- had played trans characters ... to critical acclaim.

"Rub and Tug" is the story of Dante "Tex" Gill, who was born a woman but identified as a man and ran a prostitution ring out of his massage parlor in the '70s and '80s. It's unclear at this time how production will be affected by Johansson's exit.
