EXCLUSIVE

Senator John Thune knows ... the folks in Washington D.C. are not above the abuses we're now seeing in Hollywood.

Our fearless photog Colin got the South Dakota Republican strolling near the Capitol Wednesday -- a beautiful day we might add -- and it quickly became apparent, Harvey Weinstein news made it coast to coast.

10/19/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Gucci Mane and Keyshia Ka'oir did more than cut the cake at their wedding reception -- they sliced into a 5-figure work of art ... with a sword!!!

Edda's Cake Designs tells us their team, including designer Edda Martinez, logged a ton of hours piecing together the 10-foot beast. Yes, that's the tallest cake they've ever baked.

We're told it required 3 months of planning, 3 days of baking, 8,000 handmade sugar flowers and 2,500 Swarovski crystals ... for decoration only. No shortage of flavor -- it had layers of red velvet, amaretto, carrot, banana nut and Jamaican rum cake.

Total cost ... $75k, but BET picked up the tab as part of the $1 million 'Mane Event' wedding special.

Edda's threw in the sword Gucci and Keyshia used to cut the cake. Looks like they could've used a ladder too.

EXCLUSIVE

Jenelle Evans is putting MTV on notice about the way she says it's portraying her and her fam on this season of "Teen Mom 2" ... saying she'll leave if they don't make it right.

We got Jenelle at LAX about a week after a huge blowup she and husband, David Eason, had on a season 8 episode. Fans blasted David for verbally abusing Jenelle, and also called her a neglectful mom.

Jenelle told us she's the victim of creative editing, done purely to create more drama, and she's pissed about it. She's also angry that producers are putting subtitles on her kid because it makes it seem like he has speech issues.

Long story short ... Jenelle says MTV is screwing itself, if it has dreams of bringing back arguably the most popular chick on the series.

Steely Dan's Donald Fagen Insurance Co. Stiffing Me for Canceled Tour

10/18/2017 4:53 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kanye West and Donald Fagen have something in common -- major beef with the insurance companies for their tours, and like Yeezy ... Fagen's suing his, claiming it's failed to pay up.

The Steely Dan singer says he took out a policy with International Insurance Company of Hannover to cover his 28 solo tour dates this year in North America and Japan. As bad luck would have it ... Donald says he got sick in September with an upper respiratory tract infection, severe sore throat as well as sinus and headache pains.

The illness came just one week after his musical partner Walter Becker passed away.

Donald had to cancel his remaining shows, and filed a claim for the insurer to cover any financial losses due to the canceled gigs. In the suit, obtained by TMZ, Donald says the company gave him the runaround, demanding more paperwork and medical opinions.

As we first reported, Kanye filed a similar lawsuit against Lloyd's of London after his breakdown last year forced an early end to his tour.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer's fed up ... and wants a judge to force his insurer to fork over more than $1 million.

EXCLUSIVE

Anna Faris is back on the dating horse and just like when she met Chris Pratt, this hookup started at work ... TMZ has learned.

We're told Anna's now dating Michael Barrett ... a 47-year-old cinematographer with credits on "Ted," "About Last Night," "Zookeeper," and most recently "Overboard" ... which stars Anna. 

There were no signs of romance during production earlier this year, but fast-forward to September when we know they were spending more time together. They were spotted together in Malibu at Neptune's Net, and witnesses tell us they looked very couple-y.

And just this week, they hit up a Pacific Palisades restaurant TWICE, with more reports of PDA.

Chris and Anna fans no doubt remember they met in 2007 on the set of "Take Me Home Tonight."

Anna's new pairing comes 2 months after she and Chris announced their separation. It was clear they were ready to move on when they quickly stopped wearing their rings

We've reached out to Anna's camp, so far no word back.

She got up again, but this time Brendon -- who's had numerous arrests in recent years -- pulled her down by her hair ... according to law enforcement. We're told a hotel employee called cops, who arrested Brendon for felony domestic violence.

We've reached out to a rep for Nicholas, who had no comment. 

Ozzfest Sues OZY Fest Ripped Off Ozzy's Namesake!!!

10/18/2017 3:15 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Someone's trying to make a buck off Ozzy Osbourne's name and his long-running concert festival ... according to a new lawsuit.

Ozzy's company's unleashing their lawyers on a Central Park music event called OZY Fest -- short for OZY Fusion Fest -- which went down this past July and featured acts like Jason Derulo and Talib Kweli. Despite the name ... rock's Prince of Darkness, Ozzy, was NOT part of the lineup.

According to the suit, Ozzfest -- which has been a thing for more than 20 years -- fired off a cease and desist letter, warning that  the event, and its logo, were confusing music fans. OZY Fest claimed it wasn't a concert, and more of a "media-focused event" -- whatever that means.

Team Ozzy's calling BS, especially because OZY Fest's own website describes it as an "all-day party that brings together incredible music." So, yeah ... just like Ozzy's incredibly popular and already established festival.

Ozzfest is suing to prevent an encore use of the name, and for profits from that July show.

Breaking News

Justin Trudeau needs a hug today, and some tissues -- the Canadian Prime Minister completely lost it while talking about the death of his friend, The Tragically Hip frontman Gord Downie.

Trudeau was a huge fan of the beloved Canadian rock band, and went to their last gig a year ago.

He addressed Downie's death Wednesday, saying Gord loved Canada deeply and wanted to make it a better place. As he fought back tears, Trudeau said, "We are less of a country without [him]."

Downie died Tuesday night after an almost 2-year battle with brain cancer. He was 53.

Trudeau's news conference was just the start ... he also posted a heartfelt statement honoring his pal as "a rock star, artist, and poet whose evocative lyrics came to define a country." #RIP

Sen. Marco Rubio O.J. Can Come Back to Florida But He Ain't Gonna Like It

10/18/2017 12:18 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

O.J. Simpson can return to Florida, but he ain't gonna get a sunshiny welcome -- so says Senator Marco Rubio ... who seems pretty against The Juice lettin' loose in his home state.

"What can I do about that?" Rubio told TMZ Sports when we got him in D.C. ... "He has a right to live wherever he wants."

Technically, yes ... though Florida's Attorney General has strongly objected to O.J. coming back to his old digs. 

Marco didn't come at O.J. as hard, but he did tell us there ain't much love for Juice in the area.

Rubio would know ... after politicking in Florida for two decades.

The bottom line -- Marco thinks O.J.'s better off staying in his Vegas 'hood ... where he's been hunkering down since his release.
