Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow may have figured out the whole divorcing thing ... figured it out better than most, because they still genuinely seem to have affection -- if not love -- for each other.
Chris, Gwyneth and their 2 kids went to Katsuya in Brentwood for dinner Tuesday night. They left separately ... Gwyneth and the kids in an SUV, leaving Chris behind.
But the SUV drives a block from the restaurant and then stops. Chris sprints over to his family, and then you see a touch that tells a real story about the relationship that remains between the two.
For all of the warring divorce couples ... watch and learn.
Kicks BF to Curb
There's Only Room for 1 Star
10/22/2014 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Nicki Minaj has a message for her ex ... if you didn't wanna be a superstar so damn bad, you'd still be sleeping in my bed.
Sources connected with the former couple tell TMZ ... Nicki cut the relationship off -- after 14 years -- because he became uncontrollably jealous of her success ... success he wanted for himself.
We're told Nicki and Safaree had an arrangement -- she's the breadwinner and he's the backup singer/hype man/personal assistant. But we're told Safaree was getting sick of being in the background and had become increasingly hostile ... an emotion she reciprocated.
We hear the final straw was when Safaree didn't show up recently to one of Nicki's shows, leaving her scrambling for a hype man. She confronted him and he went crazy.
Breakup rumors spread this week when Safaree showed up in public with several of his Nicki tats covered up.
Looks like he's got a lot more work to do now.
Ready to Get Pricked
For a New Body Piercing
10/22/2014 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Jordin Sparks is embracing pain ... and this time it has nothing to do with ex-BF Jason Derulo -- instead she's finally worked up the nerve to get a bull ring piercing.
Maybe she was celebrating the single life -- or just looking for a new look -- but Jordin took a trip to T-Man Tattoo in Studio City last weekend to get a hole punched in her septum ... one of the more painful piercings you can get.
Our sources say it wasn't an easy decision -- in fact, Jordin initially left the shop ... and then came back when she felt brave enough.
We're told it ended up taking 2 attempts to get the former "American Idol" champ hooked up -- so they took $30 off the price for her trouble ... and her pain.
Gotta hand it to Jordin ... post break-up piercings beat post break-up tattoo makeovers. Always.

Soap Star Crystal Hunt
You Killed My Future Baby
... Claims Victim
10/22/2014 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
5:30 P.M. PDT -- Hunt's lawyer told TMZ ... Nam was wasted at the time of the confrontation and threatened Hunt repeatedly by shouting, "You're dead!" He added, anyone who would talk about killing an unconceived future child "has likely got some psychological issues."
Crystal Hunt is a killer -- a killer of dreams -- according to a woman who got into a vicious bar brawl with the soap actress and believes the assault destroyed any chance she had for having a baby.
TMZ broke the story ... Hunt was charged with felony assault with a deadly weapon ... after shattering a water glass on Elizabeth Nam's face last December ... causing bloody cuts and gashes.
According to court docs -- obtained by TMZ -- Nam says the attack has ruined her life ... she says she had been "actively searching for a mate," adding, "the assault might have killed my future baby, due to my biological clock ticking."
Translation: She's saying her physical appearance and emotional state makes her undesirable to men.
Nam claims she's seen an army of doctors, including a plastic surgeon to fix the scars on her face ... and a shrink to fix the emotional scars ... and is adamant Hunt should go to prison.
Probation officials are recommending Hunt serve 6 months in jail. They also want her to enroll in an anger management program and pay Nam restitution.

Blasts Comedian After Sex for Pay Accusations ...
You're Done in This Town!
10/21/2014 4:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Tyrese went nuclear on the comedian who dared to drop some ridiculous casting couch accusations -- and safe to say, the comedian will NOT be laughing at this videotaped response ... but you will ... 'cause it's awesome.
The comedian, Spanky Hayes, claims he was beaten out for the lead in "Baby Boy" because Tyrese performed sexual favors for director John Singleton. Tyrese recorded a rebuttal to Spanky, and the hysterical theme of it is ... "You know you done f**ked up, right?"
Just for good measure -- Tyrese shot the whole comeback while walking around his mansion in a fur robe and smoking a cigar. Spanky, you've been served.

Yous Guys Stole My Identity

"The Simpsons" pulled off a major heist when the mafioso character Louie rolled into Springfield -- and now a "Goodfellas" star wants a cut of the action.
Frank Sivero played Frankie Carbone in the classic 1990 film ... and says "The Simpsons" created a Carbone copy of that character when Louie first appeared in an episode entitled "Bart the Murderer" on Oct. 10, 1991.
Louie, who is Fat Tony's henchman on "The Simpsons" ... is hardly a regular. According to Sivero's lawsuit against FOX, the character appeared in 15 more episodes between his debut and April 27, 2014.
In the suit, obtained by TMZ, Sivero says he lived in the same apartment complex as some of the 'Simpsons' writers back in '89 ... and they knew all about the character he "created and developed" for 'Goodfellas.'
To the naked eye ... Louie does look like a dead ringer for Frankie.
Sivero is suing for $100 million ... or a whopping $6,250,000 per episode. We've reached out to FOX for comment, but no word back yet.

Listen carefully ... you can hear Sarah Palin in the background telling Bristol not to cuss during her statement.
As we reported ... police broke up the massive melee, but no one involved wanted to press charges.
Swore Under Oath
Dr. Luke Did NOT Sexually Assault Her
10/21/2014 1:28 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kesha admitted Dr. Luke did NOT drug her, did NOT sexually assault her and did NOT have sexual relations with her ... and she swore all of it under oath, which contradicts her lawsuit.
Kesha has accused Dr. Luke of a variety of misdeeds in her lawsuit, including rape and physical and emotional assault. Dr. Luke filed his own suit saying her claims are BS and it's all about Kesha wanting to get out of their management contract.
Now TMZ has obtained a deposition from 2011 in which Kesha and Luke were both being sued by her former manager. Kesha says flat out ... she and Luke never had sexual relations:
The deposition had been sealed ... and Tuesday morning Dr. Luke's lawyer went to court asking the judge in his case to unseal the depo and allow it to be used in the current case. We're told Kesha's lawyer argued it was NOT fair game, but the judge disagreed and unsealed it.
Kesha's lawyer, Mark Geragos, tells TMZ ... using the depo is "a pathetic attempt to once again blame the victim." Geragos says Kesha lied because "Luke walked Kesha down the beach and threatened to destroy Kesha's life and the lives of her family if she didn't cover up his sexual assaults."
Cut From Cowboys Practice Squad
10/21/2014 12:52 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Michael Sam's dream of being the first openly gay player to start a regular season NFL game took a major hit today ... with the rookie DE being cut from the Dallas Cowboys practice squad.
Sam, who was signed to the Cowboys after failing to make the St. Louis Rams 53 man roster, was released earlier today after Dallas signed linebacker Troy Davis.
Moments ago, Sam spoke out about the move releasing a statement via his Twitter account.
"I want to think the Jones family and the entire Cowboys organization for their opportunity, as well as my friends, family, teammates, and fans for their support. While this is disappointing, I will take the lessons I learned here in Dallas and continue to fight for an opportunity to prove that I can play every Sunday."
