Scheana Marie Look What the Tide Washed Up ... 'BiP' Hottie Robby Hayes!

5/23/2018 9:21 AM PDT

"Vanderpump Rules" star Scheana Marie's bathing suit says it best -- now that she's hooking up with another hot reality TV star ... in Hawaii -- yeah, "Living My Best Life" definitely applies here.

Scheana and "Bachelor in Paradise'' star Robby Hayes were strolling through the surf Tuesday in Oahu. Rumors started to swirl they were hookin' up back in March, but they both claimed they were just good friends. We'd say VERY good friends, based on these shots.

Scheana had previously been linked to Rob Valletta after her divorce from Mike Shay.

One thing Robby and Scheana can't deny -- they look good together.

Pete Wentz No Shot at Fortnite's $100 Mil ... Unless You're Ninja

5/23/2018 7:28 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Pete Wentz is a big Fortnite gamer -- he loves it -- but he knows he's got NO CHANCE in hell of winning a single dollar from the upcoming $100 MILLION prize pool.

Instead, Wentz says the only real gamers who could get rich from Fortnite are players like Ninja ... a Fortnite god who chews up and spits out casual gamers like Drake for breakfast.

"I feel like I would have better luck doing ANYTHING than making money off Fortnite," the Fall Out Boy bassist told us in Studio City.

The company behind Fortnite -- Epic Games -- announced the 9-figure prize pool for the 2018 season earlier this week and gamers have been scrambling to put together elite squads to go after the money.

But, Wentz has a point ... players like Ninja, TSM Myth and FaZe Tfue will murder you and all of your avatars when real money is on the line. 

Good luck, though ...

Kim & Kourtney Kardashian Yeah, Disneyland Really is for Kids The Things We Do For Love

5/23/2018 7:50 AM PDT

Kim and Kourtney Kardashian took their kids to Disneyland this week for the umpteenth time -- as you can tell in their faces -- but stuck it out for the sake of their little ones.

The two Kardashian sisters and all 5 of their kids -- sans baby Chicago -- hit up the Happiest Place on Earth Tuesday and, based on the adults' reactions to some of these rides ... it would appear the magic has worn off on 'em. The same can't be said for North and co., though.

While the Kardashian kiddos look pretty ecstatic on each and every attraction, Kim and Kourtney seem to be broadcasting one consistent thought for the most part ... meh. 

Can't blame 'em, considering Kourtney was just there for her 39th birthday and Kim swung by with Kanye just last May

Disney ... it takes its toll after a while.

Donald Trump Defense in 'Apprentice' Sexual Assault Case She Really is a Liar

5/23/2018 6:18 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Donald Trump has a simple defense in the lawsuit filed against him by former 'Apprentice' contestant Summer Zervos ... she's a liar and truth is a defense.

Zervos sued Trump for defamation after he said she was making up the story he allegedly sexually assaulted her during a 2007 business meeting at the Beverly Hills Hotel.

Zervos couldn't sue for sexual assault because of the statute of limitations, but after he said her case was "totally made up nonsense," she sued him for defamation calling him a "sexual predator."

Trump just filed an answer to her claim, denying the sexual assault allegation, adding he has an ironclad defense ... truth. 

Donald Trump Everybody Loves Tomi Lahren!

5/23/2018 6:35 AM PDT

Donald Trump showed Tomi Lahren some serious love after someone threw a glass of water at Tomi and her mom.

Trump tweeted, "Everybody is with Tomi Lahren, a truly outstanding and respected young woman!"

The conservative FOX News contributor was in Minneapolis this week with her mom over the weekend when a woman chucked the water at her ... unprovoked.

Trump may be over his skis by saying "everybody" is with Tomi. Lots of people have problems with some of her views ... comparing Black Lives Matters protesters to the KKK, firing shots at Beyonce for her Super Bowl performance, and calling Joe Kennedy III a "little limp dick."

If, however, Trump is limiting his comment to the water-throwing incident, then maybe most people agree.

Steve Aoki Kendrick Was Right N-Word Is Off-Limits to White Fans

5/23/2018 7:13 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The n-word is off-limits period if you're white, and Kendrick Lamar handled the uncomfortable moment onstage when a white fan rapped the word like a pro ... according to Steve Aoki

Steve told us just that Tuesday as he meandered around Times Square in NYC ... adding Kendrick was super polite in schooling his fan.

Kung Fu Kenny picked a white fan from the crowd at a festival in Alabama to rap onstage with him, but had to stop the song when she repeatedly dropped the n-word in the lyrics.

Aoki says Kendrick did the right thing by giving her another shot but says the schooling was necessary because of the current racial climate in America, which he uses the perfect words to describe.

Jenna Dewan So Hot, So Single

5/23/2018 7:17 AM PDT

You can hear Jenna Dewan saying it in this pic -- ain't no rings on this hand!!!

Jenna and Channing Tatum announced their split less than 2 months ago, but based on the smoking hot, body-hugging dress and swagger she was rocking Tuesday afternoon in Hollywood -- she won't be single much longer. 

Jenna was stuntin' on 'em on her way into 'Jimmy Kimmel Live,' and ain't much more to say here ... except, maybe, damn.

What's that thing about one man's loss?

T.I.'s Wife Tiny Disagrees with Hubby Don't Shut Down Houston's

5/23/2018 6:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

T.I.'s wife, Tiny, doesn't carry the same outrage over the latest incident at Houston's restaurant ... it seems she doesn't want the chain shut down, and not just because the food is delicious.

We got Tiny Tuesday at The Grove in WeHo and she definitely feels the security guard at the restaurant crossed the line when he allegedly dragged the women out of the bathroom, but she doesn't think it was racially motivated since the guard appeared to be African-American.

She believes the security guard should be reprimanded for getting so physical with the ladies and nothing more. She clearly doesn't believe that Malcolm X tactics are appropriate under these circumstances -- something her hubby has clearly embraced.  

Agree to disagree.

Ex-Prez Vicente Fox Forget Netflix Money Grab, Obama ... The World Needs You!!!

5/23/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Barack and Michelle Obama are making a huge mistake with their Netflix deal ... according to Vicente Fox, who says they should focus on helping people, instead of making money.

We got the ex-Mexican Prez Tuesday in D.C. and asked him about the Obamas locking up a production deal to make films, series and documentaries for Netflix. He's not on board.

In fact, he fully challenged the former first couple.

Fox says their jump into entertainment comes at the worst time, because their leadership's desperately needed in other arenas.

Vicente's no fan of President Trump, and doesn't call him by name, but watch -- he urges Obama to help the Democrats win in November.

Translation: take down Trump's Republicans now ... make your showbiz bucks later.

R. Kelly My 'Too Late' Speech Was No Diss, Just a Shout-Out to Me

5/23/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

R. Kelly was recently filmed saying it's "too late" for those trying to #MuteRKelly -- but his speech was more about his strong legacy than it was anything else.

A new video shows Kelly making a toast with friends, and him saying "it's too late" as well as "They should've did this s*** 30 years ago." While some took that to mean his accusers were too late, we're told that's not what he meant.

Sources close to Kels tell TMZ ... Kelly was simply celebrating with his pals -- including former basketball player Antoine Walker -- rather than bashing any of his accusers. We're told his "too late" comment was in reference to those trying to silence him, like Spotify.

Fact is ... R. Kelly's streaming numbers have actually gone up since Spotify announced it was removing his music from its playlists. Sources say Kelly was simply pointing out his music has made its impact around the world, and nothing will change that.

We broke the story ... Kelly's now being sued by a woman who claims he sexually assaulted her, falsely imprisoned her and gave her herpes. She also secretly recorded Kelly earlier this month, trying to coax him into a confession. 

Kelly is facing many other allegations of sexual misconduct ... including running an alleged sex cult. He's vehemently denied that, though.

Houston's Arrests Race Absolutely Was a Factor Says Brittany Marie Lucio

5/23/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

One of the 3 actresses busted at Houston's firmly believes her skin color played a role in the aggressive way the security guard took her down, and she says the restaurant's track record proves it.

Brittany Marie Lucio tells us Houston's and cops are lying about what went down before she and her friends got dragged out of the Atlanta restaurant and put in handcuffs. She takes serious issue with what she believes was excessive force used to remove them.

One of the friends, Asia'h Epperson, told us she was shocked cops arrested them instead of the security guard. Ditto for Brittany, who said she's fully aware of the issues that prompted T.I. to boycott a different Atlanta-area Houston's last year.

As we reported, T.I.'s now on a mission to shut down Houston's nationwide, by any means necessary.

Brittany told us why his support is invaluable, and added there's gonna be a lot more that comes out about this incident ... most likely in court.

'Sons of Anarchy' Star Theo Rossi Juice Lives Well in Real Life ... And Now You Can Too!

5/23/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The guy who tried selling out the SAMCRO biker gang in "Sons of Anarchy" is now trying to sell something else not quite as nefarious ... his real-life home!

Actor Theo Rossi -- who played Juice Ortiz in 'SoA' for all seven seasons -- has listed his Staten Island mansion for a modest price, if you're loaded ... about $1.75 million.

He put the 4 bed, 4 bath home on the market at the beginning of April this year, after having lived there since 2013. It's a handsome house with an indoor gym, multiple fireplaces and a sweet deck all sprawling across a 9,015 sq. foot plot of land.

Sources tell us Theo grew up on Staten Island, but is now moving off the island ... hence the sale. 

Theo's real estate broker is Laird Klein -- the same guy who helped "Mob Wives" star Big Ang unload her own Staten Island pad a couple years back. 

'Pawn Stars' Brett Maly Diddy Did His Homework ... $21M Art Buy's a Win-Win

5/23/2018 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Diddy's got a keen eye for fine art, and his historic purchase of a Kerry James Marshall painting is a huge score for him and a bigger score for the artist ... according to a famous expert.

Brett Maly -- the fine art appraiser from "Pawn Stars" -- tells TMZ ... Diddy deserves a lot of praise for making all the right moves before dropping $21.1 MILLION on Marshall's 1997 work "Past Times" during a Sotheby's auction last week.

Maly says the combo of focusing on an acclaimed artist AND going after one of his most important pieces is a baller move ... and Diddy certainly made a splash.

As for that splash ... Brett tells us it should have a ripple effect for Marshall -- who's sold million-dollar paintings in the past -- by boosting his sales a few more million ... per piece. Not too shabby, especially since Puff's purchase already made him the most expensive living African-American artist.

Brett also seems to be on the same page as Diddy's son, Quincy Brown -- who says his dad's now a major player in the art world ... get used to it.
