'BiP' Stars Robby & Amanda Couples Who Dress Alike Stay Together

7/24/2017 11:08 AM PDT

Robby Hayes and Amanda Stanton are now a thing, thanks to "Bachelor in Paradise." Oh, and ... spoiler alert.

Amanda and Robby were hand-in-hand for a weekend stroll in WeHo. We're not judging, but seems like they're already coordinating their wardrobes (Ok, we're judging). 

They were both down in Mexico shooting the upcoming 'BiP' season ... and maybe the third time will be the charm for Amanda. She finished fourth on Ben Higgins' 'Bachelor' season, and was briefly engaged to Josh Murray before calling it off in December 2016.

Robby was the runner-up on JoJo Fletcher's season.

If at first you don't succeed ... get recast!

Wiz Khalifa I Pack Punches Like I Pack Bowls Intense MMA Training!!

7/24/2017 10:23 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Wiz Khalifa's next big show could be in the Octagon because the superstar rapper -- who's known as a smoker, not a fighter -- has been busting his ass doing MMA training.

TMZ Sports got this video of Wiz hitting the mitts with FOX's Jay Glazer, and working on his kicks with UFC star Cat Zingano. Pretty clear from the video ... he's taking it seriously, and we hear he's been at it like this for about 3 months at Unbreakable Gym on Sunset.

What's most impressive about this workout sesh is Wiz was on vacay! He was in Napa for a wine tasting trip -- with his gf, Izabela GuedesMichael Strahan and Glazer -- but brought his gear to do some training ... in between sipping cabs and zins.

Wine tasting and MMA? Just when ya think ya know a guy.

Nicolas Cage Hilariously Steals the Spotlight in Kazakhstan

7/24/2017 10:03 AM PDT

Nicolas Cage's facial expression has done it again ... and it's melting the Internet.

Nic was in Kazakhstan Sunday attending the opening of the 13th Eurasia International Film Festival ... and this picture -- posing next to the country's First Lady -- has everyone laughing their asses off.

The Oscar winning actor wore a traditional Kazakh robe over a shirt and tie ... but it's his holy-hell-what-have-I-gotten-myself-into-and-where-did-it-all-go-wrong look that's sparked memes all over social media.

The guy can't catch a break ...

Cops: Michael Irvin's Accuser Did Cocaine and MDMA ... Before Alleged Incident

7/24/2017 9:09 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The woman who accused Michael Irvin of rape tested positive for several drugs in her system after the alleged incident, including cocaine and ecstasy ... this according to prosecutors. 

According to a State Attorney report on the case, obtained by TMZ Sports, the accuser took a toxicology test at a nearby hospital just a few hours after the alleged incident in the early hours of Wednesday, March 22. She told officials she did not take any drugs that night and believes something was put in her drink.

But the toxicology report came back showing the presence of amphetamine, MDMA, cocaine and alcohol in her blood. Her B.A.C. was a .10 despite the fact she had stopped drinking hours before.

The woman later admitted to investigators that she took a "small amount" of Xanax and ecstasy on the 19th and 20th -- and fessed up to doing cocaine over the weekend. Officials didn't believe her cocaine excuse because coke metabolizes "almost immediately" and would likely not show up if taken that long ago. 

Either way, officials say they couldn't prove that Irvin provided any of the drugs to her.

There's more ... officials also did the blacklight test in Irvin's hotel room and did find some semen -- on the corner of a seat cushion. But they couldn't prove if it was Irvin's or someone who had previously stayed in the room. Gross.

Investigators also found video of the woman partying with Irvin earlier in the evening and even gyrating her hips around him near his hotel room.

Officials also say the woman underwent a vaginal swab after the alleged incident but there was no trace of Irvin's DNA.

Ultimately, prosecutors came to the following conclusion:

"The victim's inability to recall details, the inconsistent statements, her alcohol and drug use, coupled with the video evidence showing her voluntarily entering the hotel with the defendant and 2-and-a-half hours later exiting the hotel elevator with the defendant while not appearing upset, make this a case where there is not a reasonable likelihood of conviction."

Jessica Alba Giving That Bun Some Sun

EXCLUSIVE

Jessica Alba's got her third bun in the oven ... and she's making sure it gets plenty of sun.

Alba's currently enjoying summer in Hawaii on the heels of news she's having another kid. She's already mom to 2 daughters -- 9-year-old Honor and 5-year-old Haven -- with husband Cash Warren.

There's no doubt that Alba's a MILF and looks incredible in nothing but a bikini and baby bump, although she might want to apply sunscreen more liberally, especially when it comes to her belly.

Linkin Park Chester's Demons Were Always Part of the Deal

7/24/2017 7:54 AM PDT

Chester Bennington's bandmates are remembering him for his musical talent ... and also the demons that ultimately led to his suicide.

Linkin Park posted an open letter to Chester in which they thank the fans for the outpouring of love and support, and say of the singer ... "You touched so many lives, maybe even more than you realized." It sounds like they didn't see any warning signs before Chester took his own life because they say, "Talking with you about the years ahead together, your excitement was infectious."

The band addressed their frontman's demons too -- "You fearlessly put them on display, and in doing so, brought us together and taught us to be more human."


Kim Zolciak Attacks Kenya Moore ... Nobody Talks Crap About My Kids!

7/24/2017 7:39 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Zolciak raged out on Kenya Moore because she thought Kenya said something about her son, who was horribly injured by a dog bite -- and it took several cast members to hold her back.

Multiple 'RHOA' production sources tell us Kim went all Mama Bear while they were shooting over the weekend at a home in Atlanta. We're told Kenya and Kim were throwing shade as soon as they saw each other -- but when things got personal, it got out of hand.

Kim made comments about Kenya's new marriage being fake ... and Kenya fired back that Kim had pimped out her daughter to get John Legend tickets. Everyone we spoke to agrees to that much, but here's where it gets messy.

We're told Kim thinks Kenya said the Legend tix were for "your injured son." Others in the house say they never heard Kenya say the son part. Doesn't matter ... Kim was convinced and lost it ... rushing at Kenya, knocking over and breaking glasses on the way.

Cast members and production staff grabbed Kim and calmed the situation. We're told Kim immediately bounced, and is genuinely pissed -- not just "for the show" drama ... like last season.

Michael Irvin Off the Hook In Rape Case

7/24/2017 7:56 AM PDT
Breaking News

Prosecutors will NOT press rape charges against Michael Irvin after investigators determined they had no strong case against the NFL Hall of Famer, officials tell TMZ Sports.

As we previously reported, Irvin was being investigated in Ft. Lauderdale after a 27-year-old woman told police Irvin sexually assaulted her at his hotel room during a March 21 incident. 

Irvin adamantly denied any wrongdoing from the start -- saying he never had any sort of a sexual relationship with the woman. Irvin told us she was like a family member to him before the allegations. 

Now, Ron Ishoy at the Broward State Attorney's Office tells TMZ Sports, "The Irvin case has been closed out for lack of evidence and no likelihood of conviction."

The paperwork closing out the case will be filed this afternoon.

Irvin is having a news conference Monday. 

Ciara Tobogganing With Baby!

7/24/2017 8:13 AM PDT

Ciara and Russell Wilson have a little thrill-seeker on their watch ... 3-month-old daughter Sienna, who can't walk yet but is already hauling down a mountainside on an alpine slide.

The Wilsons are in China, where they've been taking in sights like the Great Wall, and over the weekend took a family toboggan ride.

Doesn't look like China has an age or height restriction on their alpine slide courses. Ciara rode with Sienna strapped to her chest, while Russ came down with 3-year-old Future.  

Those things are pretty safe IF you don't go fast, and looks like Russ and Ciara always had a hand on the brake. The views ... also not bad.

'People v. O.J.' Star O.J. Simpson and Casey Anthony Are All the Same to Me

7/24/2017 7:56 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

O.J. Simpson and Casey Anthony are NOT really free even though they're free ... according to Keesha Sharp.

Keesha -- who played Johnnie Cochran's wife on 'People v. O.J.' -- was at Bristol Farms Sunday in L.A. where we got her take on O.J. getting paroled. It's obvious the news pains her, but says it was the right decision.

That being said ... Keesha says a dark cloud will always follow Simpson, the same way it's followed Anthony since her not guilty verdict for the murder of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee.

Keesha also has the Goldman family's back.

Blac Chyna I Got Fresh Ink! This Is Who I REALLY Love

7/24/2017 7:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Blac Chyna's new tattoo paints a very clear picture of who comes first in her life, and it's not her new aspiring singer boyfriend.

As we previously reported ... Chyna's new boo, Mechie, got her initials tatted on his neck last week. Naturally, you'd think BC would reciprocate by getting his initials on her own skin. Not exactly.

Chyna might've taken the matching tattoo thing too literally but at least she's laying it all down from start of the relationship.

Looks like she learned a lesson from that Future situation.

O.J. Simpson Too Toxic for a Book Deal ... Major Publishers Say

7/24/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

O.J. Simpson's still untouchable in the literary world -- most major publishers will NOT be scrambling to offer him a book deal after he gets out of prison.

We spoke with multiple major publishers who said ... despite being granted parole, and all the interest in recent O.J. projects -- like the "30 for 30" documentary and 'The People vs. O.J.' -- the book world will take a hard pass. We're told publishers fear a major backlash, or boycott, that could impact their roster of authors.

Another reason he's considered toxic is publishers don't see people rushing to put money in O.J.'s pocket, because the public still considers him guilty of double murder. As Keith Urbahn, president of publishing giant Javelin, put it ... "Consumers won't spend 20 bucks on a self-aggrandizing book about how he's turned his life around."

Last time O.J. landed a book deal was 2007's 'If I Did It' ... which cost mega-publisher Judith Regan her job at HarperCollins. Our sources say that fiasco is fresh in the minds of publishing execs.

Bottom line -- don't hold your breath for O.J.'s tell-all memoir. 

Beyonce & Jay-Z Neighbor Says Welcome to Bel-Air You're Our Wet Dream!!!

7/24/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Beyonce and Jay-Z might be the lucky charms their future next door neighbor dreamed about.

There's a couple that owns a Bel-Air house next door to the one where Bey and Jay are about to close escrow. As we reported, the Carters are paying around $100 mil for the mansion.

That's good news for the neighbors, who have tried in vain to sell their home since 2015. Problem is ... the lot is kinda screwy. The driveway is narrow and goes downhill, and when people pay millions they want more.  

But now prospective buyers will get more ... as in maybe the biggest power couple in the U.S., next to Barack and Michelle.  

As they say, it's all about location, location, location. Bel-Air is one of hoitiest of toitiest areas in L.A. and living next door to Bey and Jay puts the neighbors in the epicenter of celebrity power.

Ultimately, it's all about price, and when you compare what the Carters are paying to the very reasonable $18 million dollar price tag on the house next door ... well, the listing agents clearly think it's now a steal.
