Britney Spears Easter Day Pass ... From Mental Health Facility

4/22/2019 6:32 AM PDT

Britney Spears reappeared for the first time since checking to a mental health facility.

She left the Montage hotel in Bev Hills on Easter Sunday with her boyfriend, Sam Asghari. We're told she spent the day with Sam.  

TMZ broke the story ... Britney checked herself into a mental health facility last month ... she was on the ropes and emotionally dealing with her dad's illness. We know she was still at the facility late last week so this appears to be a break for just a day. 

Britney has dealt with some serious mental health issues over the years. At its worst, her dad, Jamie, worried back in 2007 he'd get a call from the coroner, but things turned around after a conservatorship was established the next year, and it remains to this day.

We're told Britney is in the mental health facility voluntarily and is expected to remain for at least 30 days.

There was no sign of her kids during Sunday's outing. 

Nicolas Cage 4-Day Wife Ready to Cut Ties ... But Wants Spousal Support!!!

4/22/2019 7:35 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Nicolas Cage's estranged wife doesn't give a damn they were only married for half a week before he filed for an annulment -- she says it still counts ... and she wants his money.

Erika Koike filed legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- responding to the actor filing for an annulment last month just 4 days after they were wed in Las Vegas. As we told you ... Cage claims he "reacted on impulse and without the ability to recognize or understand the full impact of his actions," and also says the marriage was based on fraud.

Koike calls BS, claiming Nic's impulsive actions don't qualify for an annulment. As for the alleged fraud, she says Cage asked her to start again "in the right way" just 12 days after filing for an annulment ... proving their relationship's legit.

Here's the thing ... Erika agrees the 2 aren't fit for marriage and should get a divorce, but she wants SPOUSAL SUPPORT!!!  According to the docs ... she says she lost career opportunities during her long relationship with Cage and her reputation's been damaged by his allegations.

She's also asking him to pay for her legal fees.

Nic and Erika began dating in April 2018. He's been married 3 previous times to Alice Kim, Lisa Marie Presley and Patricia Arquette.

Justin Bieber 'Sorry' Excuse During Ariana Coachella Set ... I Had to Get My Groove Back

4/22/2019 6:55 AM PDT

Justin Bieber did something Sunday night at Coachella that he hasn't done in 2 years ... perform.

The Biebs jumped onstage during Ariana Grande's set to close out her show and sang "Sorry." He said, "I had no idea I was going to be on a stage tonight." We had heard rumblings for a week it was probably going to happen.

Nevertheless, he stole the show and thanked Ariana for sharing the stage.

As for his hiatus, Bieber told the crowd, he hadn't performed in "like 2 years, so I had to get my groove back, had to get my swag back, you know what I'm saying."

Looks like Justin's about to drop an album ... he as much as told the crowd that before leaving the stage.

'Game of Thrones' Fans Freak Out Over Arya Sex Scene ... Immediately Check for Age!

4/22/2019 6:35 AM PDT

It wasn't exactly The Red Wedding .. but "Game of Thrones" fans FREAKED OUT Sunday night when Arya Stark ditched her clothes for a sex scene -- going to Wikipedia in droves to check for her age!! 

Here's the deal ... the actress who plays Arya is Maisie Williams -- who was 14 YEARS OLD when the series began back in 2011. She's basically grown up before our very eyes. 

When the series began, Maisie's character, Arya, is 11 years old ... and since the passage of time is a bit confusing on the show, it's unclear how old she's supposed to be now. But, young. 

So, when it was time for Arya to finally get her shwerve on Sunday night -- getting down with Gendry (played by Joe Dempsie) the scene called for some nudity -- nudity 'GoT' fans didn't see coming. 

Don't worry ... Maisie is 22 years old in real life. 

Williams also spoke about the nude scene -- admitting she thought it was a prank when she first saw the script ... and told the showrunners, "I was like, ‘Yo, good one.’ And [they were] like, ‘No, we haven’t done that this year.'"

Maisie says producers gave her the option to show as much or as little as she wanted -- and what you see in the scene is ultimately what she went with. 

Now, the question ... will Arya and Gendry hook up again? Or is Arya a "hit it and quit it" kinda gal??

Luke Perry Makes His Final Act on 'Riverdale'

4/22/2019 7:17 AM PDT

Luke Perry's final curtain call is coming this week on "Riverdale."

The last episode Luke filmed for the hit CW series is set to air Wednesday ... nearly 2 months since the actor died from a massive stroke. "Riverdale" showrunner, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, revealed the details Sunday night.

Cole Sprouse revealed last month the show had something planned to address Luke's sudden passing. As you know, "Riverdale" acknowledged Luke shortly after his death -- closing an episode with an "In memoriam" graphic.

This week's episode will, naturally, be more in-depth as it will include the final scenes he ever shot on camera.

As we've reported ... Perry was incredibly beloved by fans of the show -- as well as his costars and the crew -- as he played Fred Andrews. KJ Apa stars as his son, Archie Andrews. KJ also paid tribute to Luke days after his passing, saying, "Rest in Love bro."

Osundairo Bros Jussie's 'Attackers' Can't Land Acting Gigs But Abel's Landing Punches

4/22/2019 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The men who allegedly "attacked" Jussie Smollett at his behest are feeling the pain in the aftermath of the whole debacle ... because their acting careers have taken a major blow.

Sources close to the Osundairo brothers -- Abel and Ola -- tell TMZ ... the 2 have come up empty trying to land an agent in the past several weeks. We're told they've reached out to about 10 of the top agencies in Chicago and none have been interested in signing them.

This especially hurts right now because it's pilot season in the TV biz, and actors like the bros can't even get auditions without an agent.

What's worse is Abel actually HAD signed with the Gray Talent Group about a month before his involvement in the Jussie drama became known, and got dropped shortly afterward.

The reason he was given, according to our sources, was generic and didn't mention the Smollett case ... but it was obvious. We're told the agency told Abel it couldn't provide him the opportunities he desired, adding ... "parting ways with talented actors like yourself is a difficult decision and not a direct reflection on your character or your abilities."

Unfortunately for the Osundairos ... their fitness biz has tapered off as well. Our sources say while it seemed to be booming about a month ago, many of their potential clients turned out to be feigning interest in getting in shape and were really looking to get details on Jussie's case.

The good news -- at least for Abel -- is his boxing career is on the rise. He followed up his win in the semifinals of the prestigious Chicago Golden Gloves Tournament last month by winning the whole damn amateur competition last Friday ... in the first round.

So, congrats on that at least.

Brody Jenner Kim's Good Enough to Be My Laywer ... But I Pray She Never Is!!!

4/22/2019 6:55 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Brody Jenner has zero doubt Kim Kardashian will one day be a great lawyer who skillfully represents her clients in court -- he just doesn't want to be one of those clients.

We got Brody out Sunday at LAX and had to ask him about Kim's aspirations to become a lawyer in the next couple of years. As you know ... she's studying for the bar exam and says, so far, she's kicking ass. Even though Brody and Kim don't really talk much since their parents split, he still has high praise for his former stepsister.

But check out the vid ... after Brody was done praising her, he explained why under NO circumstances does he ever want to have to pay Kim a retainer fee. And no, he's not looking freebies.

Brody can afford it.

Meagan Good To Kaepernick Let's Do a Movie Together!!!

4/22/2019 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

If Colin Kaepernick is trying to get that Hollywood money ... Meagan Good says she's ALL IN -- telling TMZ Sports, "I'll do a movie with him!!"

Of course, Kaepernick's having trouble finding work these days ... even after he settled his lawsuit with the NFL -- league owners still don't seem to want to give him a shot at playing QB.

Enter the "Shazam!" actress ... who tells us she would LOVE to see Kaepernick take up acting if he decides to officially hang up his football cleats.

"I just think Kaepernick is amazing and pray for him to continue to just have the platform that he has whatever way that he has, and if he wants to act, dude, he can do it!"

Unclear what their roles would be in a future flick ... but we know Kap has SOME level of comfortability behind the camera -- 'memba his famous Nike commercial??

Soooo, as Good says ... "Sup Kaepernick?!"

EXCLUSIVE

Scott Speer roughed up his wife during a drunken rampage before trying to burn their house down, and he's now been booked for arson ... according to law enforcement sources.

The "Step Up Revolution" filmmaker was arrested last week at his San Fernando Valley home after cops and firefighters arrived at their place for an alleged domestic dispute.

We're told Speer had been drinking heavily when he got into a fight with his wife, who allegedly suffered some minor injuries. Cops say the spat culminated with Scott setting fire to a broom with the intention of lighting up the whole house.

Fortunately, the flames were extinguished ... but Speer was hauled away by cops and is facing a felony charge for arson. We're told domestic violence charges are possible as well.

Speer's bond was set at $250k ... he's posted it and has been released from custody.

We reached out to him ... no word back so far.

Along with directing 'Revolution' ... Speer produced "Step Up All In" and directed 2 recent Bella Thorne movies -- "I Still See You" and "Midnight Sun." 

Kanye West Sunday Service from Coachella ... Spiritual, Emotional & Quite a Show!!!

4/22/2019 7:43 AM PDT

4:05 PM PT -- We got the full rundown of all the big names at the Service, and the list is massive. Along with those already mentioned ... Justin and Hailey Bieber, Lil Pump, Willow and Jaden Smith, 2 Chainz, Tame Impala, Donald Glover, Kid Cudi, Jerrod Carmichael, Jermaine Dupri and Idris Elba were all in attendance.

Marcus Hyde, Kim and Kanye's photog who was seriously injured in a car crash in October, was also there.

11:50 AM PT -- Kanye's Service has wrapped up ... after an upbeat and emotional couple hours with a lot of help from his friends.

The final hour featured DMX giving a prayer, Chance the Rapper performing "Ultralight Beam" and a huge rendition of "Jesus Walks." At one point it looked like several members of the choir, including Kanye, were moved to tears.

Kylie and Travis were apparently feeling it too ... and were moved to a little PDA. Happy Easter, everybody!

11:05 AM PT -- Though the Service kicked off at 9 AM, Kanye wasn't revealed on Coachella's fisheye lens stream 'til about 9:50, and he didn't get on the mic for another hour after that ... when he performed "All Falls Down." He followed it up by premiering his new song, "Water," with Ty Dolla $ign

He's also rocking purple hair. 

Not that Ye hasn't been busy the whole time -- he's been dancing, playing piano and directing the choir ... while tens of thousands of festival attendees gather around. The show is still going too.

Other highlights so far include the choir and band performing "Beautiful Morning," "Power," "Blood on the Leaves" and Stevie Wonder's "As." Teyana Taylor and Chance the Rapper also performed, and celebs spotted in the crowd include Kim, Khloe, KourtneyKendallKylie and Travis Scott, and La La Anthony.Kanye West is ready to preach his version of the gospel for all the folks at Coachella ... and TMZ will be streaming live when it begins at around 9 AM PT.

Ye will host his Sunday Service, which has become a thing in L.A., attracting lots of celebs. It's more music than preaching, which may be a reason why some not-so-religious people have become believers. Kim Kardashian West was getting the family ready to attend bright and early.

A brand new stage was set up in the campground for Ye, and everyone with a wristband is welcome. Event producers are expecting upwards of 100,000 people. Take that, Joel Osteen.

The Sunday Service will feature a massive choir, orchestra and, we're told, other surprises. In weeks past he's performed both gospel songs as well as some of his hit songs.

During a recent service ... Kanye paid homage to Nipsey Hussle by playing audio of Nipsey delivering inspirational thoughts. It was one hell of a show.

Cardi B vs. Tasha K Blogger Goes HAM ... I Could've Blown You Away!!!

4/22/2019 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The blogger Cardi B is suing -- over some wild allegations -- just got served in a heated exchange with the process server ... one that included an apparent threat of gunfire. 

We broke the story ... Cardi's going after Tasha K for claiming the rapper's a drug-using prostitute with herpes. Cardi's lawyers hired a process server to deliver the lawsuit to Tasha's residence Thursday night.

This audio from their run-in, obtained by TMZ, makes it clear things quickly got dicey.

You hear the server ID himself to Tasha and a male companion as they pull up to their home. Tasha got pissed because she says the guy was in her driveway, looking through her mail. 

Although she was pissed, he does his job ... handing her the docs and delivering the line, "You've been served." Tasha responded by informing him she's within her rights to "blow something in your head."

The server assures her he didn't do anything illegal, but Tasha wasn't having it. 

For the record, Cardi's suing Tasha -- and another blogger, Starmarie Ebony Jones -- for defamation, and wants their video posts about her deleted.

Matt Stafford's Wife Kelly Recovering After Scary 12-Hour Brain Surgery ... 'Truly God's Work'

4/21/2019 5:25 PM PDT
Breaking News

Kelly Stafford is on the road to recovery following brain surgery that went twice as long as planned and had everyone very concerned ... but she says God was looking out for her.

As we reported ... Lions QB Matthew Stafford's wife was diagnosed with a brain tumor recently and had to undergo a serious procedure this week to remove it.

Kelly says when doctors opened her up, they discovered an "abnormal vein." Fortunately, it wasn't abnormal for her neurosurgeon, who had not only seen it before ... but written a paper on it.

As Kelly puts it ... "That's truly God's work."

Because of the complication, an expected 6-hour surgery became 12 hours, but Kelly made it through. Video of her in the hospital shortly afterward shows how challenging the recovery will be, as Kelly struggles to walk with Matt by her side.

Good news is ... she's now back home with her family "learning my new norm."

She says it will take some time, but she's grateful for everyone's support, thoughts and prayers and adds ... "This Easter is the beginning of a new life for me."

Kelly and Matthew met while attending the University of Georgia and got married in 2015. They have 3 children together.

Get well soon, Kelly!!
