Gucci Mane I'm A Free Man!! Fresh Outta Jail

5/26/2016 12:27 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0526-gucci-mane-gettyGucci Mane is finally free ... getting sprung from behind bars 4 months early.

The rapper's lawyer, Drew Findling, tells TMZ Gucci was released Thursday morning from an Indiana prison. We're told he already has a home just outside the city. Findling says the rapper will be on house arrest for a few months and will then be on probation.

Findling and his team filed a motion months ago stating Gucci hadn't received credit for previous time served, and it looks like the judge agreed since he's out early.

Sources close to Gucci Mane -- who's been behind bars since September 2013 on a probation violation -- tell TMZ he's also ready to get back in the rap game. 

His girlfriend, Keyshia Ka'oir, just posted a pic holding hands with who we're guessing is Gucci.

Justin Bieber Sued You're a Sorry Thief

5/26/2016 11:44 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0526-justin-bieber-skrillex-tmz-02Justin Bieber is being sued by an indie pop star who claims the Biebs jacked her vocal loop for his monster hit "Sorry."

Casey Dienel, aka White Hinterland, claims the "unique characteristics of the female vocal riff" off her 2014 hit "Ring The Bell" are identical to "Sorry." She also names Skrillex, who produced JB's hit, and its writers as defendants.

Bieber only uses 8 seconds of the riff ... but Casey says he repeats it 6 times in the track. That's not the only similarity ... according to Casey, both songs feature keyboard synthesizers, samples, synth bass, drums, and percussion.

Casey points out her track was a hit in its own right ... racking up more than 800k streams, and Rolling Stone singled it out as a mag fav.

Casey says she warned Bieber to stop using the sample last December but he ignored her.

She wants Bieber to stop playing her tune ... and she wants $$$$$$$$$.

Gwyneth Paltrow, Chris Martin Divorce a Done Deal

5/26/2016 10:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0526-gwyneth-paltrow-chris-martin-TMZ-01Gwyneth Paltrow has just filed legal docs, asking a judge to officially end her marriage to Chris Martin ... but we know the docs aren't what they seem.

Gwyneth has asked the judge to enter a default judgment, because Chris never responded to her divorce petition. On the surface it sounds like Chris isn't playing ball, but we know it's the exact opposite.

As we reported, the former couple's business manager has been working out a property settlement, and Chris never responded to the divorce petition because he and Gwyneth didn't want lots of stories written each time documents were filed.

We're told the property settlement is now complete, and they agreed long ago to joint custody of their kids.

So the judge will enter the default and the property settlement will almost certainly remain confidential.

Mission accomplished.

Ariana Grande Hot Guy from 'Into You' Music Video ... I'm No Big Sean!

5/26/2016 9:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Ariana Grande fans can kill all the buzz her new music video, "Into You," is about Big Sean ... so says the smoking hot guy who played her love interest.

We got former "America's Next Top Model" star Don Benjamin at LAX Wednesday and asked him about all the comparisons fans have been making between Sean and him.

Many believe the video is about their breakup, especially since Ariana started dating her backup dancer, Ricky, after ending things with Sean.

Don has a different theory -- but keep in mind, Don still seems a little hypnotized by making out with Ariana in the video. Not that we blame him.

Johnny Depp Divorce His Family 'Hated' Amber

5/26/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0525-johnny-depp-amber-heard-tmz-03Johnny Depp and Amber Heard's relationship was extremely bitter due to a full-blown feud between his family and Amber ... and this, we're told, is the backdrop for what is already an acrimonious divorce.

Multiple sources connected to the ex-couple tell us, Johnny's 2 teenage kids, his 2 sisters and his mom "hated" Amber, and openly discussed it.  We're told they talked about how Amber would rail on Johnny and "treat him like crap."

Earlier this year, Johnny moved his mother, Betty Sue Palmer, into the L.A. compound where he and Amber lived ... and the tension was palpable. We're told mom often told friends she thought Amber was using Johnny for his money and fame, and to boost her own career.

We're also told before Betty Sue moved in, she only saw her son once from the time he married Amber, and both Betty Sue and Johnny blame her for keeping them apart so she'd have full control.  

Our sources say Amber had 2 closed door sit-downs with Johnny's mom after she moved in, and after both meetings Betty Sue railed on her daughter-in-law, calling her a "terrible person."

We broke the story ... Amber filed for divorce Monday ... 3 days after Betty Sue died. There was no prenup, and Amber wants spousal support.
