'Bad Grandpa' Wedding Couple

Adios, Jackass ...

Wife Files For Divorce

5/25/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0521-bad-grandpa-callaway-gablePerhaps having 'Bad Grandpa' star Johnny Knoxville trash your wedding isn't the best starting point -- just ask the movie's producer, whose marriage is now in ruins. 

According to the docs, 2 years after Jarrod Brom's wedding was featured in the film -- full of ball slaps and fart pranks -- his wife, Kimberly Peeler has filed divorce papers ... throwing in the towel, which was most likely up someone's butt.

You may recall ... film crews captured Knoxville's character demolishing a champagne tower and destroying the cake during their actual ceremony.

The divorce should be pretty clean though -- they don't have any kids, and in the docs Kimberly says there are no assets to split.

If Knoxville pops up in divorce court ... that would be awesome.

EXCLUSIVE

Farrah Abraham has to get something off her chest about Mackenzie McKee’s C-cup campaign -- buy your own boobs!

Our photog spotted Farrah sipping cocktails at the Mondrian Hotel in LA and asked about her fellow "Teen Mom" alum's breast implant fundraiser. McKee's asking for contributions toward her $5k boob job on MyFreeImplants.com. Last we looked she raised around $25. 

Farrah threw some serious shade on Mackenzie, saying she's a mooch.

The former sex tape star even clued us in on how much she paid for her boobs, and it’s not as much as you think.

Ben Stiller's Mom Dies

Anne Meara

Dead at 85

5/24/2015 1:19 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0524-ben-stiller-anne-meara-GETTY-01Actress and comedian Anne Meara -- who famously co stared with her husband Jerry Stiller for more than 60 years -- has died at the age of 85.

Anne's family, including her son Ben Stiller released a statement on Sunday regarding her passing. They did not mention a cause of death. 

Meara was famous for performing on "The Ed Sullivan Show" in the 1960s with her husband Jerry Stiller, and also had recurring roles on "All My Children" and "The King of Queens." She co stared with Ben in the 2006 film 'Night at the Museum."

Anne's death was first reported by the AP.

James Harden

Officially Under Lil B's Spell ...

The Curse Is On!

5/24/2015 10:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0524-lil-b-james-harden-GETTY-01As if being down 3 games to zero wasn't hard enough -- Houston Rockets star James Harden now has to contend with the so-called "Based God curse" ... which is now officially on him, according to Lil B.

The rapper tells TMZ Sports he put the hex on Harden when he failed to apologize or give proper credit to Lil B for his "cooking it up" dance. B says, "He's cursed for the rest of the playoffs and further notice until he speaks on what dance celebration he's doing and where it comes from."

The curse has become the talk of the NBA playoffs, and couldn't come at a worst time for Harden ... whose Rockets are on the brink of elimination after getting crushed by the Golden State Warriors yesterday, 115-80. 

If, like most reasonable people, you're not buying this curse biz -- Lil B points out he gave Harden a final warning before yesterday's blowout, and ... "he lost by 35 points to match the jersey number of his former teammate [Kevin Durant] who is actively cursed right now."

Lil B famously threw the curse on KD last year. Now he's injured. 

B says he didn't want this to happen, and still hopes Harden has a change of heart. He adds ... "The Based God can take off his curse at anytime."

Reality? Harden's chances of coming back from 3-0 are already slim to none -- cursed or not.

'Gossip Girl' Star Kelly Rutherford

Awarded Temporary Custody Of Her Kids

5/24/2015 9:49 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0524-kelly-rutherford-kids-INSTAGRAM-01Kelly Rutherford has finally won a battle in her 3 year war to get her kids back from her ex-husband, and on U.S. soil -- at least in a California court, but it remains to be seen if Monaco will honor the deal. 

On Friday, a California judge granted her custody of 8-year-old son Hermes and 6-year-old daughter Helena. The children have been living in France and Monaco with their father Daniel Giersch since 2012.

The California ruling only says Kelly has the right to bring the children back to the U.S. while the custody battle continues. The problem is, it's unclear whether Monaco courts will honor the California ruling.

Earlier this month, Kelly came on TMZ Live and told us Giersch had "habitual residents" status for the children ... meaning they could not be removed from Monaco. 

Mama June

Bring 'Honey Boo Boo' Back

Or I'll Sue for a Million Bucks!!!

5/24/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0522_mama_june-_tlc_tmz

Mama June has given TLC an ultimatum -- either put "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" back on the air, or she'll sue the network for treating her far more harshly than the Duggar family. 

Mama June's lawyer tells TMZ, he gave the network the demand Friday, claiming the family's rights were violated when TLC yanked the show hours after TMZ posted a pic of June with convicted child molester Mark McDaniel. They say Josh Duggar's conduct was far worse, with fewer consequences.

The attorney told TLC the family is willing to work for the same terms as before and they are all on board.

The lawyer told TLC he'd be happy to resolve the matter in court ... where he believes he can score a $1 million jury verdict. 

The attorney says if he doesn't get any action in the next week, he'll file the lawsuit.

Byron Allen

President Obama

'White President in Black Face'

5/24/2015 8:04 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

TV mega-mogul Byron Allen trashed President Obama Saturday night, essentially calling him an Uncle Tom, accusing him of not acting "like a black man."

Allen, a major TV producer who often programs for minority audiences, said he was outraged Obama referred to the Baltimore rioters as "thugs."

Allen warned Obama, "remember who you are," telling him, "It's OK to be President and a black man."

And then Allen goes for the jugular, saying Obama is a "white President in black face."

So we gotta ask ...

'Beautiful Mind'

Inspiration for Movie

Killed in Taxi Crash

5/24/2015 7:06 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0524-john-nash-GETTY-01

The Nobel Prize-winning mathematician who was the inspiration for Russell Crowe's character in "A Beautiful Mind" is dead, along with his wife, after a fatal taxi crash.

John Forbes Nash, Jr. and his wife Alicia were in the back of a cab on the New Jersey Turnpike when the driver tried to pass another car and lost control.  The taxi crashed into the guard rail and both Nash and his wife were ejected.   They were not wearing seat belts. 

Nash was a brilliant mathematician who battled paranoid schizophrenia ... a character well-played by Crowe in the 2001 movie, which won an Oscar for Best Picture.

Nash won the Nobel Prize for Economics in 1994 for his work in game theory. He taught at Princeton and MIT.

Nash was 86.  Alicia was 82.  They were married for 60 years.

RIP.

Kris Jenner

Hammered for NOT Using N-Word

0524-kris-jenner-people-in-paris-INSTAGRAM-02

Kris Jenner is actually being criticized for NOT using the n-word.

Kris congratulated Kim and Kanye on their 1-year anniversary Saturday, reminiscing about the uber-fancy wedding in Florence following a blow-out party in Versailles. 

Kris posted, "Kanye treated us to fireworks ... And if you listen closely ... his huge hit song "Great People in Paris ..."  She didn't want to use the real title, "(N-word) in Paris."

Some people are railing on Kris, grousing, "Things white people say," and others calling her "ignorant." 

You can't win for losing.

Kim Richards

Proud Mama

At Daughter Brooke's Wedding

EXCLUSIVE

0524-Kim-Richards-Daughter-Wedding-Gallery-Launch-Template-02

Kim Richards was front and center for her daughter's wedding Saturday in Cabo, but it's just a night out before returning to rehab.

Kim's daughter Brooke married Thayer Wiederhorn, the heir to the Fatburger fortune ... yeah, we were surprised too that he was skinny.

The pictures tell a fairly compelling story ... the family seems tight.  Kyle Richards -- who has had issues with Kim in the past -- was right there, along with her daughters and hubby Maurcio Umansky.  You'll recall, Kyle's daughter Alexia was badly bitten by Kim's pit bull.

Paris was there, along with most of the other Hiltons.

The entertainment was impressive ... Conrad Sewell performed his huge song, "Firestone.'

Kim, who had a sober coach present, did not drink and she's returning to rehab, where she's been since shortly after her drunken night at the Beverly Hills Hotel which led to her arrest and criminal charges.

Benzino & Althea Eaton

Getting Marriage Counseling ...

And it Pays TOP Dollar

5/24/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0504-benzino-althea-tmz-01

Althea Eaton and Benzino's non-stop drama cost them their "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" gigs -- but it also helped them score $200k to appear on "Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars."

Sources close to the show tell TMZ that the powder keg lovebirds will work through their issues and see if they are truly ready for marriage in Season 4 -- and they'll rake in a sweet payday while they do it.

No doubt they make for good TV ... Benzino and Althea got tossed off 'LHHA' last year after allegedly instigating the now infamous all out brawl with Stevie J and Joseline Hernandez

Word of advice: the boot camp counselors should probably keep boxing gloves handy.

WWE Superstars

Wedding Crashers

5/24/2015 7:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0524-wwe-wedding-crash-TMZ-01Forget groomsmen .... A Syracuse couple got what they were after Saturday night when 3 huge wrestlers from the WWE barreled into their wedding reception.

Roman Reigns, R-Truth and Jimmy Uso (none the groom) were at a bar in the hotel when they heard the reception and made their way in.  What they didn't know -- the bride, Beth Samuels and her freshly-minted hubby Matt were huge WWE fans.  

Beth knew the WWE was having a show in Syracuse so she sent an email to the wrestling org inviting any of the wrestlers who might be looking for something to do.

Turns out the 3 guys didn't have a clue about the email ... they just dropped by and stayed 45 minutes.

Only thing more awesome ... if one of the guys face-planted someone in the cake.
