The Weeknd Heads to the Hills for $20 Mil ... Snaps Up Mega Mansion

5/22/2017 6:24 PM PDT

The Weeknd has a new place to call home in one of the richest areas of L.A. -- he just copped one helluva mansion in Hidden Hills for nothing short of $18 million.

Abel's new pad sits on 3 acres of land and is spread out over more than 13,000 square feet. It's also got 9 bedrooms, 11 baths and a sick guest house out back.

The inside ain't too shabby either. As you might imagine, this place comes with all the bells and whistles of a multi-million dollar mansion -- a home theater, wine cellar, music lounge and its own gym.

Looks like the real Weeknd is right here.

Michelle Obama It's Not a Cold Shoulder It's a Hot One!!!

5/22/2017 2:50 PM PDT

Michelle Obama bared enough for pretty much everyone in Tuscany to notice.

The former First Lady was out and about in a super revealing top -- if shoulders are your thing.  

Barack wore a button-down shirt casually with sleeves rolled up as he walked next to Michelle.

The Obamas are splitting their time chilling and writing memoirs ... for which they're getting paid a total of around $65 million.

Nice work if you can get it.

5/22/2017 6:02 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The new "Bachelorette" just surfaced before her new season kicks off Monday night with what appears to be a tiny engagement ring ... but she's got an explanation.

We got Rachel Lindsay leaving LAX, and our photog calls out the obvious -- she's wearing a sliver of metal around the finger where a huge rock would normally be if you were engaged.

Rachel's already confirmed she is in fact set to be hitched to someone from the "Bachelorette," but explains this one away with a simple answer ... it ain't a ring.

We'll let you be the judge on that.

Judge to Snoop, Dre, Suge You're Off the Hook Ain't No Case Here

5/22/2017 2:38 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The guys suing Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Suge Knight and other rappers behind "Ain't No Fun (If The Homies Can't Have None)" are 24 years too late.

A California court dismissed the lawsuit brought by 2 L.A. rappers who claimed Snoop and co. stole the hook to 'Ain't No Fun' way back in the early '90s.

According to court docs, these fellas had 3 years to file a lawsuit ... 3 years from 1993.

We broke the story ... the 2 rappers sued Snoop and his Death Row Records crew last year for using their original hook to the rap hit without living up to their end of the alleged bargain ... getting the dudes a record deal and promoting their careers.

The rappers tried claiming the 3 year period reset every time the song was played ... but a judge wasn't buying what they were selling.

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian were out and about together for the first time since Easter -- at least the first time we've seen them -- and the venue was the Mouse House.

Kanye, Kim and North hit up Disneyland Monday to celebrate a family friend's birthday. They also brought Kourtney's kids, Penelope and Mason. Kanye bundled up like he was still on a Wyoming mountaintop, despite the 75 degree weather.

'Shahs of Sunset' Star GG Files for Divorce 2 Month Marriage is Kaput!!!

5/22/2017 1:11 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Shahs of Sunset" star Golnesa 'GG' Gharachedaghi is saying deuces to her marriage... she's filing for divorce just 2 months after tying the knot.

GG and hubby Shalom Yeroushalmi have irreconcilable differences. They got married January 25 and she lists March 27 as the date of separation.

Friends were worried GG was rushing to the altar ... clearly they were right.

GG also wants the court to block Shalom from getting spousal support. They have no kids and such a short marriage usually means all involved won't put up a fight.

Celine Dion Celebs Flock to Kiss the Ring

5/22/2017 12:53 PM PDT
Exclusive Details

Celine Dion's dressing room at the Billboard Music Awards was virtually a revolving door of star power ... celebs simply couldn't get enough.

Sources close to the award show tell TMZ Celine had MANY famous visitors throughout Sunday night's BBMAs -- and some couldn't even snag a little face time with the Queen.

We're told artists like Drake, Desiigner, Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani, and Vanessa Hudgens all stopped by to pay their respects to Celine, but mostly to gush about how much they loved her. Vanessa even shed tears over her performance, and Drizzy suggested getting her tatted on his ribs.

The one celeb left out was Jason Derulo. We're told he waited in her dressing room for 45 minutes while Celine was doing press, and passed the time chatting with her son, Rene Charles. Fortunately, he finally got to meet her.

Kourtney Kardashian and Kendall Jenner are cut from the same cloth ... when it comes to their asses on yachts, that is.

Kourtney and Kendall took a break from the hustle and bustle of the Cannes Film Festival and boarded a yacht in the resort town of Antibes ... which is between Cannes and Nice. Not that geography matters worth a crap ... you're here to see what they're what they're wearing.

Aside from swimwear ... Kourtney showed off her new man, Younes Bendjima -- and had some jet ski time with him and Kendall.

Charlie Sheen Excited, Humbled by Spike in HIV Tests 'Great to Be of Service'

5/22/2017 10:54 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Charlie Sheen's not willing to take all the credit, but understands his HIV diagnosis likely played a huge part in boosting sales of home HIV test kits.

Researchers are calling it the "Sheen Effect," and Charlie was fully aware of the numbers when we saw him Monday morning at a Malibu gas station. By some counts, HIV test sales jumped up to 95% immediately after his 2015 announcement -- and remained as high as 60% up to a month later.

Charlie's take -- "It's exciting, and it's great to be of service at that level." He also explained how his life has not only changed, but has "been elevated in a lot of ways."

We've gotten a lot of wild Charlie clips over the years -- you're familiar -- but this is a remarkably different side.

Breaking News

Motorcycle racing champ Nicky Hayden is dead at 35 years old ... days after being struck by a car in Italy while riding a bicycle.

Hayden was cycling along the Rimini coast in Italy last Wednesday when he was hit by a vehicle ... sustaining multiple traumatic injuries, including a serious head injury.

N.H. was in the intensive care unit of an Italian hospital ... before succumbing to his injuries.

Hayden -- the 2006 MotoGP champion -- was one of the best motorcycle racers in the world. He rode for the Honda Red Bull team, and was in Italy for a race.

Michael Jackson Estate Hey, Lifetime & Netflix ... Make Your Movies, Just No MJ Tunes

5/22/2017 9:49 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The new Lifetime and Netflix movies about Michael Jackson and his pet monkey, Bubbles, won't feature any of MJ's music if they know what's good for them.

Sources close to Michael Jackson's estate tell TMZ the new flicks, 'Searching for Neverland' and the recently announced animated feature, "Bubbles," are not authorized -- therefore, they're not allowed to use ANY of Michael's materials ... especially his music.

We're told MJ's estate is holding off on legal action for now, but if they hear anything like, oh let's say "Billie Jean," "Thriller," "Beat It," "Rock with You," "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough" or any of his hits ... they'll round up the lawyers.

The reason they're not heading to court now? The estate reps haven't seen the movies. 'Searching for Neverland' drops next week, though, so things could change by Monday.

Here's the real question ... can a movie about Michael Jackson even exist without his music, his videos or his pictures? We think not. Soooo, good luck with that, guys.


Scott Disick Burglary Smells Like Inside Job

5/22/2017 8:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Scott Disick's home was almost certainly broken into by someone who knew him and knew the property ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ -- not that Scott seems the least bit concerned.

Our sources say it appears Sunday's burglary was an inside job, because the crook or crooks knew exactly where the security cameras were before breaking into the house through a backdoor because they moved the cameras so they could enter undetected. After entering, they opened a bunch of drawers.

Cops also believe the burglars knew full well Scott was out of town, appearing at a gig in Vegas for his birthday. It was heavily advertised beforehand.

Scott was back home by Sunday around 9 AM, hanging with friends and rambling incoherently. Seemed like the party was still going from Vegas, and he was NOT sweating the burglary.

The break-in comes almost a year to the day from the time Scott was hit the first time ... someone broke into his home and stole some super expensive watches. Law enforcement tells us Scott believes he knew who did it but didn't want to rat them out.

As for what was taken this time around ... we're told an inventory hasn't been taken yet. 

Katy Perry Scores $25 MILLION Deal For 'American Idol'

5/22/2017 7:48 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Katy Perry is getting a staggering $25 MILLION to judge "American Idol" ... this according to sources familiar with the negotiation.

Multiple sources tell us ABC was desperate to sign a name before the Upfronts last week, when honchos announced she was the lead judge. As one source put it, "Katy had all the leverage. If ABC ended up announcing the show without a judge, they'd be screwed."

TMZ broke a story way back in 2012 that 'A.I.' was trying to get Katy as a judge but she rejected the network's $20 mil offer.

As we reported, ABC tried to get Kelly Clarkson but at the last minute she jumped ship and went to NBC's "The Voice." NBC also snagged Jennifer Hudson.

We're also told ABC is "on the verge" of signing the deal with Ryan Seacrest to host the show. Sources connected with the first run of 'Idol' tell us Ryan was making $15 mil a season at his high point. We're told Jennifer Lopez was also raking in $15 mil a season. So Katy blew them both away.
