Celine Dion Shocked by 'Package' at BMAs

5/23/2016 8:42 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0523-celine-dion-and-son-billboard-awards-GETTY-01Celine Dion had no clue her 15-year-old son would be presenting her ICON Award at the Billboard Music Awards ... even though producers talked about it right in front of her.   

That's because they used a code word for Rene-Charles during rehearsals. Our production sources tell us Celine's son was referred to as "the package" all weekend. This was the first time he had been to one of his mother's award shows ... which added to the surprise for Celine, we're told. 

For keeping the secret, the teenager scored an awesome reward -- a backstage pic with Rihanna.

Oh, and Mom was really happy. That was good too.  

What a night! #billboards2016

'Teen Mom' Star Gary Shirley Keeps The Kid ... and Scores Cash!!

5/23/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0519_gary-shirley_amber_portwood_daughter_tmz_instagram"Teen Mom" OG star Gary Shirley is set for a great Father's Day ... he's keeping primary physical custody of his daughter with Amber Portwood ... and mama's paying child support. 

Gary and Amber have been locked in a custody war for years over 7-year-old Leah.

Amber lost primary custody in 2011 and then went to prison for drug possession the following year. Amber says late last year they agreed to joint legal custody with primary physical custody going to Gary. They have since been fighting over child support.

The parents were in an Indiana court last week and struck a settlement. Gary will retain primary physical custody. As for child support ... Amber has to fork over $1,200 per month.

They both say they can put their beef behind them and properly co-parent their kid.

Zika Virus Entrepreneurs Gunning for Zillions

5/23/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0519_zika_virus_compositeFor every epidemic, you'll find someone trying to make a quick buck, and now some hucksters are capitalizing on the Zika scare by flooding the market with "lifesaving" swag.  

At least 6 people filed legal docs to lock down merchandising rights for Zika prevention kits. The products are all about mosquito repellents, including:

- Zika Shield: mosquito nets; particularly nets adapted to be mounted onto an umbrella

- Zika Screen: insect screens for use in building construction

- Zika Trap: insect traps

- Bye Bye Zika: mosquito repellent coils

- Anti Zika: cedar wood for use as an insect repellent; insect repellent tags for pets; mosquito repellent incense 

- Zika Band: insect repellent wristband 

Judge all you want ... there's a good chance these quick thinkers will rake in the dough.

Bad Boy Reunion Tour Hey, Puff ... Forgot About Us?!

5/23/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0520-puff-daddy-tour-composite-getty-05Sean "Puff Daddy" Combs ruffled feathers when he excluded some of his own label's bands from the Bad Boy Reunion Tour. 

Of course ... Mase, Busta Rhymes, Faith Evans and 112 will all be hitting the stage. However, Da Band, B5, Day 26 and Diddy Dirty Money will all be at home -- or, at best, in the audience -- and there are some hurt feelings. 

B5's Dustin Michael tells TMZ ... "We just felt like our relationship [with Diddy] was better than that." Da Band's Sara Stokes thinks they earned a spot because, "We made history with Diddy on 'Making the Band' and pretty much opened the doors for all the other reality shows."

Most of the Bad Boy alums we talked to, including Babs from Da Band, say they'll still go to the concert.

As for whether Diddy comps their tickets -- the phone's not ringing. Yet. 

Dream We're Back ... With Diapers and Wipes!!

5/23/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0519-dream-getty-tmz-01Girl group Dream is reuniting for a tour, but all the bottles they'll be popping on the road have nipples. 

The late '90s/early 2000s pop band is joining 98 Degrees and Ryan Cabrera for the MY2K Tour, and the ladies will be on full mommy duty based on their rider ... which looks like a Baby Depot shopping list. 

Their backstage demands include size 3 diapers (preferably from Honest Co.), alcohol-free baby wipes, and Plum or Earth's Best brand organic baby food. Members Holly Blake-Arnstein and Melissa Schuman have 3 kids between them.

Interestingly, there's no request for nannies. We see an OT opportunity for Drew and Nick Lachey!

Calvin Harris The Mangled Wreck

5/22/2016 12:09 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0522-calvin-harris-car-crash-accident-scene-gallery-launch-01Calvin Harris may have needed an ambulance after his car accident Friday night, but the crash pics we got show he was actually a very lucky man.

The SUV in which Calvin was a passenger could easily have been struck head on ... had it been hit a second earlier.  TMZ broke the story ... a VW Bug driven by a 16-year-old crossed the dividing line at around 11 PM and smashed into the SUV, ejecting one of the girls from the VW.  

We're told the 16-year-old girl was speeding up Coldwater Canyon when she lost control and nearly slammed into the mountain.  She jerked the wheel and overcompensated, crashing in to the SUV.

As we reported, Calvin was taken to a local hospital for a facial laceration.  Law enforcement sources tell us he asked for a private room, and when they couldn't accommodate him, he got off the gurney and left, against medical advice.  A rep for Calvin disputes that and says he was cleared to leave.  

As for the girl who was ejected, she suffered a broken pelvis ... she should be ok.

Calvin had to cancel 2 gigs.

Her rendition of Bob Dylan's, "It Ain't Me Babe" -- with Ben Folds -- brought down the house.
