Matt Bellamy

I've Got A New Muse ...

Guess Who She Looks Like?

4/23/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Matt Bellamy New GirlfriendMatt Bellamy finally put the moves on his Kate Hudson doppelganger, because he and the gorgeous "Blurred Lines" music video star Elle Evans are now definitely banging.

Sources close to the new couple tell us Bellamy and Evans officially became an item back in March and were practically inseparable at Coachella, doing what all new couples do ... making out and taking sappy photo booth pics.

We're told they were also handsy last week at the Burberry Fashion Show in L.A. -- but she hasn't met his son yet. As we previously reported, they first met back in February through mutual friends ... and things heated up shortly after that.

We ran into Elle Wednesday at The Ivy ... and she was super tight-lipped re: Matt -- although she kinda slipped up as she said goodbye.

4/23/2015 6:49 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Liza Minnelli is feeling so good since her stint in rehab, she's going back to work.

The legendary star of the stage and screen was leaving her new favorite place -- Lisa Vanderpump's PUMP -- Wednesday night and could not have been nicer chatting up our photog. 

Liza revealed she's rehearsing for her next gig -- but didn't say what.  

But her mood changed slightly, blanching hard when we asked about a "Wizard of Oz" remake.

Chris Brown

Here's a Few Pennies, Beat It!!

Settles B-ball Beating Case

4/23/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0422-chris-brown-tmz-03Chris Brown's finally put that alleged pick-up basketball brawl behind him -- settling up with the guy who sued him ... but the guy definitely won't be retiring on what he got from Chris.

Malcolm Ausbon filed the lawsuit, claiming Chris and 3 cronies gave him a beat down in the middle of a hoops game they were playing at a 24-Hour Fitness last year in L.A.

As we first told you ... Ausbon's lawyer even sent Chris' attorney, Mark Geragos, a letter threatening to go to cops, unless Chris paid him $250k -- a move Geragos called extortion.

In the end, we're told Ausbon did get paid -- but way, wayyy less than his asking price. Sources connected to Chris describe it as a "nuisance payment" -- to make Ausbon go away -- that was no more than 4 figures.

The exact amount is sealed under terms of the settlement. As for why Chris paid such a low number -- best guess is Ausbon lost all bargaining power when he arguably blackmailed Chris.

0412-the-game-tmz-01That punch The Game threw during a basketball game keeps getting him in more trouble -- he just got slapped with a second lawsuit ... this one from the guy who tried to serve him with the FIRST lawsuit!

TMZ broke the story ... Game sucker punched an off-duty cop during their hoops game last month ... the cop sued. Weeks later, the process server and photog he hired to serve Game were also allegedly attacked.

Mila Kunis

That Ukrainian Chick's Pollo Loco!!!

4/22/2015 4:01 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mila Kunis is calling chickens**t on the Ukrainian woman who claims the actress stole her beloved chicken, Doggie, a quarter century ago back in the old country.

With a little prompting from Ashton Kutcher, Mila says she was "devastated," and "weeping" after finding out Kristina Karo was suing her for $5,000 for emotional distress and therapy bills.

Mila and Ashton hilariously question the timing ... Karo is filing suit as she tries to hawk a music video.

For her part, Mila's contemplating a countersuit because the music video 'burned her eyes and hurt her body.'

If the judge would make the countersuit a class action, we'll gladly join.

By the way ... you should check out Karo on TMZ Live, unless you're chicken.

Hilary Duff Divorce

Child Custody Fight On

4/22/2015 3:14 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0422-hilary-duff-mike-comrie-tmz-02Hilary Duff's estranged husband isn't giving up their son without a fight ... Mike Comrie just responded to her divorce filing, and is demanding joint custody. 

In the docs, the ex-hockey star says he wants to share custody of 3-year-old Luca. As we previously reported ... in her divorce petition, Hilary asked for primary physical custody of Luca -- and only wanted Mike to get visitation.

Sources connected with the couple tell us Hil is worried about Mike's parenting due to his partying ways. In fact, she filed for divorce the day after Comrie was reportedly drunkenly propositioning women at Mastro's in Bev Hills.

Comrie acknowledges they have a prenup -- just as Hilary did -- to sort out their property and support issues, but clearly ... little Luca is going to be a point of contention.

Rosie the Riveter

Model for Iconic WW II Image Dies

4/22/2015 4:02 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0422-rosie-the-riveter-mary-keefe-GETTY-01The woman who became Norman Rockwell's Rosie the Riveter -- the symbol of American women working on the home front during World War II -- has died at the age of 92.

Mary Doyle Keefe died Tuesday in Connecticut after a brief illness ... according to her daughter.

Keefe met Rockwell when she was 19-years-old and working as a telephone operator. She was paid $10 to pose for Rockwell's iconic painting ... which showed a woman with her sleeves rolled up, rivet gun on her lap, and eating a sandwich during a break.

The image debuted on the Saturday Evening Post in May 1943.

In real life, Keefe wasn't anywhere near as beefy and muscular as Rockwell's Rosie. He later apologized to Keefe for the image, saying he needed to make her "sort of a giant."

The painting was eventually used to sell war bonds -- and Beyonce even struck her own version of Rosie last summer on Instagram.

Khloe Kardashian

Flaunting Lamar Odom Tattoo

... With Love

4/22/2015 3:11 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0422-khloe-kardashian-lo-tattoo-instagram-02Another sign Khloe Kardashian isn't over Lamar Odom -- she Instagrammed a photo of her L.O. tattoo ... and punctuated it with a heart emoji in the caption.  

The pic shows Khloe gripping her Bentley shift knob ... and showcasing the tat she got for Odom right after they got married in 2009. 

Despite the fact they separated in 2013, Khloe has dragged her feet with the divorce -- and we're told she's still conflicted on whether she truly wants to end her marriage to the ex-NBA star. 

This picture seems to support the theory that there's still hope for a reconciliation. 

Stay tuned ...

'It's Getting a Little Diane Sawyer-y'

4/22/2015 1:27 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Robert Downey Jr. sat for an interview to promote "The Avengers: Age of Ultron" ...  but when the reporter changed topics to Downey's distant past, the actor walked out, telling the guy he didn't sign up for a Diane Sawyer sit-down.

Downey was talking all things Avengers with Channel 4 News in London Wednesday to promote the release of his new flick and he handled things like a hero until the interviewer -- Krishnan Guru-Murthy -- brought up prison, politics and family.

Downey cautions the guy, but Guru-Murthy was done talkin' cinema. Downey eventually removes the mic and walks out, but not before telling the guy he was "a little Diane Sawyer-y."

EXCLUSIVE

0422-karrueche-tran-getty-01Brace yourself, Chris Brown ... the chick previously best known as your ex-gf just upgraded her title to ... Karrueche Tran -- star of a hit Emmy nominated show.  

Karrueche's budding acting career just got a boost when her most recent gig for "The Bay" -- an online soap opera -- got nominated for a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding New Approaches Drama Series.

KT joined the cast last year ... taking over the role of Vivian Johnson -- who mysteriously returns to her hometown. She beat out 100 other actresses for the role, and so far has only appeared in 6 episodes -- but we're told she's getting a beefy story line for Season 4. 

So, while Chris is off playing daddy ... Karrueche's working on getting her own 4 pound baby -- dipped in gold.
