Per Month!!

10/3/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1001_John-Frusciante_nicole_getty_youtubeThe estranged wife of ex-Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante says she needs $75k a month to keep the luxury train rollin' down the tracks. 

Nicole Frusciante says in divorce docs the initial $20,000 payment she got from John doesn't cut it. She says it would be an enormous step down from their life as a married couple, with 3 homes, personal assistants and a private music studio.

Nicole says John has closed the vault on their fortune, leaving her with a bank account of under $30k. She wants access to his loot, which she claims hovers around $14 million.

TMZ broke the story ... the couple filed for divorce in May after being married for nearly 4 years. 


Ellie Goulding

Rolls Bus Over Sound Guy

In Lip-Syncing Football Fiasco

10/3/2015 6:56 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ellie Goulding took some serious shots at her audience and in particular the sound guy who she says screwed up royally during her performance at the Australian Football League pre-game show ... exposing an egregious case of lip-syncing.

Ellie was performing her hit, "Love Me Like You Do," before the championship game ... at least that's what she was scheduled to do.  But you hear the music and her voice,  but the mic is nowhere near her mouth.

Ellie went on Twitter after the game and [said, "Considering i had no voice yesterday and a sleepless night because of the meds I would say it's been a good day."  Then she took her first shot, saying,  "I give 100% in my performances, even when people don't give much back."

1003-sub-elli-goulding-twitter-02But her real wrath was reserved for the audio tech, saying, "Incidentally the sound guy who pressed playback twice and triggered both band tracks simultaneously is nowhere to be seen."


Get well soon.

10/3/2015 6:24 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Akon is scoffing at the notion Justin Bieber chugged booze an very possibly smoke a joint onstage this week because of a dare.

As we reported, Justin chugged from a Hennessy bottle and grabbed a blunt during a performance with Rae Sremmurd in New Zealand.  We're told Bieber claimed to have done it on a dare.

Penn Jillette

Hey Bacon Worshipers ...

Wanna Buy My Vegas Crib?

10/3/2015 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1002-church-of-bacon-fun-art-TMZ-GETTY-01Penn Jillette might just have the perfect buyers for his Las Vegas mansion and the new residents are all high ... in cholesterol.

The United Church of Bacon, a group of more than 12,000 religious skeptics and atheists has its collective eyes set on the 7,500 square foot pad. We're told they'll use the place for community meetings, weddings and for plain old, "having fun."

As for the home, which Jillette nicknamed "The Slammer," it sits on 8.5 acres and features a lap pool, catwalks connecting different wings of the house and even a fire pole from one level to the floor. 

The church's central tenet is that bacon is real ... it's proven to exist. The church's money better be real too ... the home is listed at more than $2 million.

I'll Campaign for Kanye ...

But I Can't Vote for Him

10/2/2015 5:42 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kanye West's presidential campaign for President is picking up steam fast -- he could have a campaign manager in rapper Noreaga, who's ready to get out the vote ... up to a point.

We got N.O.R.E. leaving 1 OAK nightclub on Sunset, and he was showing Yeezy a ton of love -- first, for North's nickname. Earlier this year, Kanye joked that he calls her Norrie as a tip of the hat to the rapper.

But N.O.R.E. really started gushing about Kanye in 2020 ... pushing his clear choice for prez, but he is gonna have one BIG problem when it comes time to vote.

At least he can laugh about it. 


'The Most Interesting Man In The World'

Sued For Being The Cheapest Client In The World

10/2/2015 5:21 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1002_jonathan-goldsmith_gettYHis blood might smell like cologne and he might be able to increase a new car's value when he drives it off a lot, but according to his former manager ... "The Most Interesting Man In The World" is a deadbeat.

TMIMITW, aka Jonathan Goldsmith is being sued by a former manager who says he helped Goldsmith land the Dos Equis job. The manager says he was supposed to get 10% of Goldsmith's earnings.  

However, he claims Goldsmith stopped paying him in 2014. The manager says TMIMITW told him he was done paying him simply because he had given him, "enough."

This is a choice passage from the lawsuit, "...had Goldsmith landed a role that more accurately portrayed his true character, he would have landed the role of 'The Least Honorable Man in the Entertainment Business.'"

According to the lawsuit, Goldsmith is set to rake in roughly $2 million by the end of 2016 -- he wants his 10%.

Stay thirsty rich my friends.

1002-scott-disick-girlfriend-pool-TMZ-02Scott Disick just took his talents and his relationship with blonde model Lindsay Vrckovnik to South Beach.

They started hanging out in New York this week, but looks like Scott's gonna hang on to her for at least a few more days ... since their all-nighter turned into a weekend getaway.

32-year-old Disick and the 18-year-old model, who just graduated high school (congrats!) were in Miami cruising from the schmancy Setai Hotel to the beach.

We're told Scott was very flirty with his new lady friend, and spent hours on the beach together.

At least he's spending time with a kid ... just not his own.


Robin Williams

Family Settles Feud Over Estate

10/2/2015 3:38 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1002_robin_williams_tmzRobin Williams' widow has settled her lawsuit against the comedian's children, in a dispute that got intensely personal and hurtful.

Susan Schneider Williams, his 3rd wife, claimed the kids tried to screw her out of money she needed to live. The bad blood centered around Robin's estate in Tiburon, CA. His will provided that Susan got the house and expenses to maintain it, but his estate had the power to dole out the dollars, and she says the estate harbored a grudge against her and denied her what she needed.

Susan and the kids also fought over Robin's awards, watch collection, an expensive bike collection, photos and other cherished possessions.

Susan has now dropped her claims against the estate so the matter is now settled. The terms of the settlement are confidential.

10/2/2015 2:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

From Pharrell to Jagger to Daft Punk to Madonna ... virtually every music superstar who's had hits in the last 40 years can probably thank Nile Rodgers for at least one of 'em -- and the legend ain't done yet.

We got Rodgers, co-founder of the classic disco band Chic at LAX, and the genius behind the monster hit "Get Lucky" told us he's hitting the studio with Keith Urban and Lady Gaga.

It's no stretch to say the man who worked with David BowieRod StewartEric Clapton, Duran Duran, Diana Ross, Adam Lambert, and Cyndi Lauper (to seriously name just a few) ... is one of the most influential musicians ever.

So, how about a collab with a certain 21-year-old Canadian and a Motown legend? First, check out Niles' chatting with our photog ... AND then his and Gaga's remake of "I Want Your Love."

Zayn Malik's Ex

Diamond Ring Trolls

1D & Little Mix Fans

10/2/2015 1:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1002_Lil-Mix_vevoZayn Malik's ex-fiancee Perrie Edwards looks like a desperate chick who's still longing for the guy who dumped her in a new Little Mix music video -- but we've learned it's not what it seems.

The vid for "Love Me Like You" dropped Friday, and fans instantly noticed the engagement diamond on Perrie's finger. People were wondering why she was still wearing it, since they broke up 2 months ago. Was it a dig at Zayn or wishful thinking?

It's neither. We found out the video was filmed around 6 months ago, when Perrie and Zayn were still a thing. Sources who were on the set tell us she kept the ring on during shooting because they were very much in love.

1002-little-mix-rehearsals-INSTAGRAM-01But y'know ... things change. The former One Direction singer broke things off in August, and Perrie didn't take it well.

Silver lining: Perrie gets some pub for her new song.
