Justin Bieber Table for One

4/27/2017 2:20 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

There's an old saying, "No man is an island," but Justin Bieber may have disproved that Thursday during a solo lunch in bustling Bev Hills.

The Biebs was dining alone at Georgie, a restaurant attached to the Montage hotel. He was chillin' with the help of his laptop, oblivious to the ladies who were lunching around him and no doubt noticing someone famous was in their midst.

Earlier this week, the Biebs enjoyed the company of friends while dancing to Kendrick Lamar in a luxury box at the Clippers game.

Katy Perry Blasted for Collab with Migos Over Homophobic Remarks

4/27/2017 12:45 PM PDT

Katy Perry's getting slammed for her new single before anyone's even heard it, because people aren't cool with her co-stars on the track -- Migos.

Perry's new song, "Bon Appetit," will be released Friday, but the backlash has already begun when the cover art revealed she collaborated with the rappers. Fans are pissed because they've made homophobic and misogynistic remarks ... notably, when an ATL rapper came out as gay, Quavo said, "This world is not right."

Now, Perry's getting heat  ... especially after accepting a National Equality Award last month at the Human Rights Campaign gala.

This isn't a first for the pop singer ... she's also been criticized by the LGBT community for her songs "I Kissed a Girl" and "Ur So Gay."

We reached out to Katy's people ... so far no word back.

United Airlines Settles with Dr. Dao For Big Bucks

4/27/2017 12:14 PM PDT
Breaking News

United Airlines will cut a huge check with Dr. David Dao -- the airline and disgruntled passenger have settled the looming lawsuit.

Dao's lawyers just said they've reached "an amicable settlement" with UAL for the injuries Dao received when he was savagely dragged off a jet in Chicago.

Attorney Thomas Demetrio says the amount of the settlement will remain confidential ... but there's no doubt United cut an enormous check. A trial would have been a disaster for the airline.

Demetrio praised United's CEO, saying, "Mr. Munoz said he was going to do the right thing, and he has." The lawyer added United has taken "full responsibility."

United confirmed the news ... adding the new improvements "will put our customers at the center of everything we do."

The airline made fundamental changes since the April 9 incident.

Phaedra Parks to Apollo Nida Let's REALLY Divorce Now But Don't Forget the Prenup!

4/27/2017 11:04 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Phaedra Parks is facing a do-over in her divorce but still insists their prenup should block Apollo Nida from attempting to get alimony.

Phaedra filed docs in Georgia asking the court to enforce what she considers an ironclad prenup Apollo signed on October 23, 2009 ... 9 days before they got married.

In docs, obtained by TMZ, Phaedra says they both agreed to waive their right to alimony ... meaning he shouldn't get a dime in spousal support when the divorce is final. She also claims they agreed how to divide their assets when they signed on the dotted line.

Phaedra thinks it's simple -- the prenup should control who gets to keep what, and doesn't want to leave things up to the judge ... as Apollo requested.

And she really sticks it to him ... saying the fact his assets have plummeted is his own doing because of his criminal activity. Apollo's serving prison time for money fraud.

TMZ broke the story ... a judge threw out Phaedra's final divorce judgment because he was concerned by a number of things -- including Phaedra intentionally misspelling Apollo's name in docs.

Carmelo Anthony Last-ditch Effort To Save His Marriage

4/27/2017 10:57 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Carmelo Anthony's playing right up to the final buzzer ... doing everything he can to win La La back and keep their marriage from ending in divorce.

Sources close to the couple tell us ... Melo's been sending his estranged wife texts telling her he's still in love and doesn't want her to leave him. We're told he's apologized over and over, and is begging for another chance by asking her on dates or to go on vacation together.

Carmelo's also been doing something he never used to do -- liking her posts on social media. We're told he insists La La's the only woman for him and has no plans to be with anyone else ... specifically not his alleged new baby mama.

Our sources say the 2 are still on friendly terms right now for their son -- so the relationship isn't toast yet -- but the pregnancy claim and his yet-to-be-determined NBA future are a lot of drama to handle.

Melo's just hoping for one more shot.

Janet Jackson Mommy's Night Out ... Takes Randy to See Bruno Mars

4/27/2017 10:05 AM PDT

Janet Jackson took a break from baby duty to treat one of her older brothers to a Bruno Mars concert.

Janet and Randy Jackson were spotted at the show earlier this week in Birmingham, England. Janet tried to keep a low profile with a ball cap pulled down low -- of course, the giant bodyguard standing over her was a little conspicuous.

One concertgoer said Janet wasn't dancing around much, but still seemed to be enjoying the music.

It's interesting, because her life is kinda drama-filled right now: divorcing Wissam Al Mana, raising 3-month-old Eissa, not to mention her mother Katherine Jackson's recent legal ordeal.

Everyone needs a night off. We meant Janet ... not Randy.

Amber Rose Hot Pink Body Good Luck Guarding It

Amber Rose's bodyguard sure has a lot of body to guard ... especially when her curves are on full display like this.

Here's Amber leaving Warwick Wednesday night in a pink mini, with a bodyguard, Big B, attached. They apparently hold hands sometimes. No biggie, she's a friendly gal.

You probably didn't notice him back there, though, because of what's going on up front. Can't say Amber doesn't know how to showcase her girls!

J Lo Opens Can o' Whoop Ass on Dude ... For TV Show

4/27/2017 9:30 AM PDT

We've been seeing a lot of Jennifer Lopez glammed up with A-Rod lately, so here's a nice change-up -- J Lo armed, dangerous and kicking some dude's ass at gunpoint.

Jenny was back on a Big Apple block Wednesday filming her TV show, "Shades of Blue," and Officer Santos totally took down the perp during this scene.

Definitely a departure from her date nights with Alex.

J Lo might not have nailed it on the first time, but we're guessing her co-star didn't mind a couple retakes. Would you?

'The Simpsons' Spoofs Trump's First 100 Days ... Kill Spicer, Put Ivanka On SCOTUS

4/27/2017 7:49 AM PDT

"The Simpsons" envision Ivanka Trump as a Supreme Court Justice, and Sean Spicer killing himself ... at least in the show's version of Donald Trump's first 100 days in office.

The spoof airs on Sunday's episode, and even the staunchest Trump haters would have to say it's super dark -- Spicer hanging himself in the White House Press Room, Ruth Bader Ginsburg getting 86'd for Ivanka, while hawking robes and the prez himself weeping over ... well, you gotta watch.

Of course, Trump's made no secret of his love for FOX News. Gotta wonder if he'll be watching the mother ship Sunday night.
