Breaking News
NOT TOUCHING THAT
Australian Open TV

Pro tip for all future Serena Williams interviewers ... whatever you do, do NOT ask about her friend Meghan Markle ... 'cause you WILL get shut down.

The tennis superstar faced the media after her Australian Open match on Monday ... and the first question wasn't about her win over Anastasia Potapova, it was about Megxit.

“Your good friend, Meghan Markle, who attended your last 2 slams, and Harry, have taken a move, a stance that many people think is extraordinary and historic," the reporter said.

"What are your feelings about that? Have you spoken to her?”

Swae Lee is making his pitch to sing the National Anthem at Super Bowl LV next year ... by showing off his falsetto.

We got one half of the hip-hop duo, Rae Sremmurd, at Beauty and Essex Sunday night and asked him about Demi Lovato singing the "Star-Spangled Banner" at next month's Super Bowl in Miami.

Swae says Demi's gonna slay it in her first live performance since suffering an overdose back in 2018. Then he puts the NFL and Roger Goodell on the clock, telling them he wants the gig come next year!!!

He's definitely got the pipes to kick things off for the biggest sporting event of the year -- ya gotta hear him sing a few bars from Francis Scott Key's banger. No autotune needed!

Seems Swae's been thinking more about the Anthem than the actual game, but we finally coax a Super Bowl pick outta him.

Exclusive
TMZ/Getty

Diddy and Faith Evans played central roles in Notorious B.I.G.'s life and in the immediate success that followed ... so it's only fitting they'll be front and center when Biggie gets inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

Sources close to Diddy tell TMZ ... the music mogul and his family will attend the ceremony -- broadcast live on HBO -- on May 2 in Cleveland. We're told Diddy may have something up his sleeve to honor Biggie ... though it's unclear if he'll perform or pay tribute onstage.

Faith tells TMZ ... she's ecstatic about her late-husband being honored as a first-ballot inductee. And, like Diddy, Faith tells us her plan is to attend the ceremony. She's also hopeful she'll be part of the night's festivities honoring Biggie.

Courtney Stodden, Doug Hutchison Divorce Finalized He Gets the Pooch!!!

EXCLUSIVE

The marriage between Courtney Stodden and actor Doug Hutchison -- 34 years her senior -- is officially over ... and he's walking away with their dog and a car.

The former couple filed new docs, obtained by TMZ, informing the court they reached a settlement on divvying up their stuff. Now, once the judge signs off, they'll be officially single in March.

As for the property split ... Doug's taking their Italian Greyhound -- cleverly named, Dourtney -- and Courtney keeps ALL of their furniture and appliances. He's also driving off with a 2001 Jeep Wrangler and his retirement dough ... plus, his personal website, which is apparently worth $100.

They're splitting up their bank accounts by branch -- she keeps Wells Fargo, and he stays with Chase. Courtney and Doug are also splitting their life insurance policy in half.

As far as debts ... Courtney's picking up the tab for 3 of their credit cards, and he's gonna inherit one.

TMZ broke the story ... Stodden filed for divorce in March 2018 after more than 6 years with Doug, and did not ask for spousal support. She told us that was because she was the breadwinner in the relationship -- and there wasn't a prenup.

The couple made headlines in 2011 when they wed -- with her parents' permission -- because Doug was 50 at the time and Courtney was just 16. They announced they were having a baby in May 2016, but a couple months later ... Stodden suffered a miscarriage.

The 2 reportedly split in February 2017, but Courtney listed September 1, 2017, as their separation date. Now, they're officially dunzo. Happy trails!

Dana White Khabib Rematch Is Next For Conor ... Important For Both Fighters' Legacy

Exclusive
HE DELIVERED
TMZSports.com

Dana White says Conor McGregor's next fight will almost definitely be a rematch with Khabib ... and the result of the match will have a major impact on the legacy of both guys.

TMZ Sports talked to Dana White outside T-Mobile Arena in Vegas after McGregor DOMINATED Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone ... and asked the UFC honcho who the Irish superstar wants next?

"Conor wants Khabib. Conor always has a lot of options. He wants Khabib, that's the fight he wants, and we'll see what happens."

We then asked White who he wants Conor to fight.

"I think Khabib makes sense, too."

Khabib is scheduled to fight Tony Ferguson in April ... and if the 28-0 fighter wins, that could set up the Nurmagomedov-McGregor rematch -- and it'd be HUGE.

The only snag? Khabib and his manager Ali Abdelaziz have repeatedly said the the Dagestani star will NOT rematch Conor.

NOT HAPPENIN'
TMZSports.com

But, Dana doesn't sound worried.

"Listen, Khabib has never turned down a fight. The guy's 28-0. He's one of the baddest dudes to ever do it," Dana tells us.

"This fight's important for his legacy too. When you start looking back at Khabib's career and if he goes undefeated and retires. You're looking at the names, and the names mean everything.  He beat Conor McGregor. He beats Tony Ferguson. He beat Conor McGregor again. He beat this guy, that guy."

That's not all ... White also talked Floyd Mayweather -- who teased a Floyd-Conor II and Floyd-Khabib bout Saturday night -- and made it clear TBE still wants to fight.

Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston are giving the people what they want ... finally!!!

The famous exes not only came face-to-face Sunday night at the Screen Actors Guild awards -- but they had a warm and loving embrace in front of all the cameras. Can we get an AMEN?!

Getty

Although both have been vocal about their friendship in recent years, we haven't seen this kind of PDA since they split in 2005.

A few weeks ago at the Golden Globes they had a near-miss on the red carpet, but Brad said he'd run into her at some point because "she's a good friend." Later that night they both attended the same after party and chatted for a while, but there were no photos or video of that tete-a-tete.

As it turns out, the SAGs were a perfect setting for this reunion, since they were both big winners. Jen picked up the Best Actress in a Drama Series award, just moments after Brad took home the Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture award.

ACCEPTING THE AWARD
TNT

During his acceptance speech, Brad joked about his role in "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" being a real stretch for him -- "A guy who gets high, takes his shirt off and doesn't get on with his wife." You have to watch for Jen's reaction to that punchline.

As for her speech -- not that we need to add more "awww" to the moment, but -- just check out Brad watching Jen accept. JUST WATCH HIM! Oy, that smile.

"OH, WOW"

We know what you're all thinking ... and yes, we're saying there's a chance.

Tim Tebow S. African Wedding Rehearsal Dinner ... Elegant Blend of Cultures

THE EPIC REHEARSAL
www.hauke.co.za

Tim Tebow is days away from saying "I do" to his South African bride, and it looks like he's getting familiar with her homeland through a super fancy warm-up to the big day.

The ex-NFL quarterback-turned-baseball player posted some awesome behind-the-scenes footage of his wedding rehearsal dinner this weekend with his fiancee, Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters -- who was crowned Miss South Africa in 2017. No doubt about it ... it was an elegant affair.

Tim was in a burgundy suit, Demi-Leigh in a complimentary red dress. The evening included a proper run-through, complete with the seating arrangements for the reception ... as well as speeches from family and friends. His former college coach, Urban Meyer, was there too.

All the while ... relaxing Bossa nova music played in the background, and the bride and groom-to-be even got a dance in for good measure. As Tim knows, ya gotta practice for game day!

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

TT eventually got on the mic himself and explained why he wanted to get hitched out of the country. Check it out ... sounds like he's a believer in the "happy wife" motto. He went on to thank the whole country of South Africa for sharing its culture with him.

Tim and Demi-Leigh got engaged in 2019 after about a year of dating. He'd made it clear he was ready to settle down, and now it's almost time. Early congrats!

Ronnie Ortiz-Magro Jen Showed Up Unannounced ... Night of Alleged Attack

Exclusive
TMZ.com

Ronnie Ortiz-Magro doesn't know why Jen Harley was allegedly snooping around his house before launching an attack with an eyeliner ... they're not dating and there was no invite.

Sources close to Ronnie tell TMZ ... they are absolutely not back together and Ronnie did not tell Jen she could swing by his place the night of the alleged attack.

We're told Ronnie finds it puzzling that Jen would show up on his doorstep ... after all, she's got a restraining order against the "Jersey Shore" star.

As for how Jen could've possibly slipped inside ... law enforcement sources believe she still had a key to his place. We're told there were no signs of forced entry.

Step one for any breakup ... change those locks!!! Can't say Gloria Gaynor didn't warn ya.

The Game Takes Police Heat Off of Kids ... By Handing Out Money

Exclusive
FOR THE KIDS
TMZ.com

The Game helped some kids out of a jam with police that left everyone happy ... but he had to shell out some cash to make it happen.

The rapper was leaving Beauty & Essex restaurant Sunday night when he noticed officers were speaking to a group of kids nearby who were selling candy on the sidewalk.

We're told another business in the area called the cops and reported the kids for trying to make a buck -- AKA soliciting -- and rather than see them get in any sort of trouble, Game took matters in his own hands.

He handed out enough cash to cover the amount of candy they were selling, and even better -- he let them keep the treats, as well.

The Game told us he was "giving jewels to the youth" so they didn't get hit by the "boys in blue," and he likely would have elaborated more, but fellow rapper Freddie Gibbs crashed our clip.

Sounds like Freddie's not a fan of the kids getting hassled either.

2020 SAG Awards Welcome to the Company Party ... It's a Union Thing

Hollywood is coming to work for a special occasion this weekend -- it's the 2020 SAG Awards, and the union's biggest members showed up ready to represent.

Tons of stars were dressed to the nines Sunday ahead of the award show -- where their own peers in SAG-AFTRA vote on who put on the best performances this year on both film and television. It's honestly one of the purest award shows -- actors judging actors.

Vance, Renee Bargh, Erin Lim, Cary Elwes and more.

By the way, the acting guild was just as strong behind the scenes too. Stars were hugging and kissing each other including Margot Robbie, Julia Butters, Danai Gurira, Meryl Streep and others.

Looks like these folks were happy to be critiqued among their own for once.

Exclusive
TMZ/Walt Disney Pictures

The guy who helped create the children's movie, "Pete's Dragon" claims he got screwed over by his own kids when they pulled the wool over his eyes to line their own pockets.

Malcolm Marmorstein's now battling 2 of his 4 kids in court over his living trust ...which he claims they duped him into altering so his wife will be left out in the cold after he dies. Malcolm, who's 91, says his boys, Mitchell and Wayne, picked him up ... took him to meet with lawyers and shoved a stack of papers in his face.

"I MUST DO THIS"
@LionsShareNews

He says he naturally trusted his sons and happily gave them his John Hancock -- only to later discover what he signed changed the way his money will be divvied up among his heirs. Even shiftier, he claims the new document forces Barbara, his wife of 14 years, to get the hell out of her home a year after Malcolm dies.

Mary Carey Signs Celebrity Boxing Deal ... Come Get Some!!!

Exclusive
TMZ/Getty Composite

Mary Carey's still getting physical in her life after porn ... by getting in the ring and beating the pulp outta other celebs.

The famed porn star officially signed a contract with Celebrity Boxing promoter Damon Feldman -- who's arranged for Mary to slip on some gloves and go toe-to-toe with another chick on April 18 in Miami. Catfight!!!

Naturally ... the bout's going down at a strip club called the Booby Trap. We're guessing there will be no shortage of ring girls.

It's the first time Mary's stepping into the ring as a competitor, and CB's still working on finding an opponent for the retired XXX star.

Celebrity Boxing has had some issues lately with stars like Angry Bagel Guy and Lenny Dykstra dropping out at the 11th hour -- so hopefully, Mary follows through.

Mary could be in line for a nice payday ... depending on her opponent and internet pay-per-view streams, CB expects her to pull in around five figures.

Tell It To My Heart Singer Taylor Dayne 'Memba Her?!

New York-native Taylor Dayne (real name Leslie Wunderman) used her powerful vocals and an epic hair crimper to shoot to stardom in the late 80s after her first single "Tell It To My Heart" became a worldwide hit ... followed up by "Prove Your Love," "I'll Always Love You" and "Don't Rush Me" ... all on her 1988 Arista Records album "Tell IT To My Heart."

The platinum pop star went on to pepper the world with a handful more albums including "Can't Fight Fate" as well wrote a book and still found time to raise twins!

Guess what she looks like now at age 57 ... and in a bikini!

Blueface 6ix9ine's Got Smart Bodyguards ... It's a Life Or Death Gig

Exclusive
TEKASHI IS OVER
TMZ.com

Blueface has no sympathy for Tekashi 6ix9ine's security woes -- and as for his old hired muscle giving him the cold shoulder ... BF supports it, cause a job's not worth dying over.

We got the rapper leaving Bootsy Bellows in L.A. this weekend, and he had some pretty blunt thoughts on Tekashi's old security guards disavowing him and any type of money he might be willing to offer to bring them back onto his payroll for protection.

Backgrid

According to Blueface, it'd be an effective death wish working for 6ix9ine at this point -- ya know, cause of all the gang snitching and whatnot. He acknowledges Tekashi's talented, but he says no amount of talent is worth putting your life on the line to shield.

He's also got something to say about whether Tekashi can make a comeback or not. Watch ... doesn't sound like Blueface is all that optimistic about the guy's prospects.

BETTER PAY UP
TMZ.com

BTW ... we recently got Justin Bieber's former bodyguard, Kenny Hamilton, at LAX and he dished on this exact situation -- telling us what Tekashi would have to pay his old crew if he wanted 'em back. Spoiler ... it's in the 7 digits. Again, high risk ... high reward.

Granted, we know Tekashi's old bodyguards have sworn off the gig for any price, but if the dude was throwing around this type of dough for a salary ... it might be hard to ignore.

Kevin Hart No Oscars Host Again ... NBD If You Ask Me!!!

Exclusive
THERE'S NO BEEF!
TMZ.com

Kevin Hart kicked off what seems to be a new tradition for the Oscars -- the show will go on without a host yet again this year ... but the guy isn't feeling salty about it one bit.

The actor was leaving Bootsy Bellows early Sunday morning in West Hollywood, where we asked how he felt about the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences opting to go without a main tour guide through the ceremony ... which they did last year as well.

That move, of course, was on the heels of Kevin stepping down as the once-announced host after an immense amount of pressure when old homophobic tweets of his surfaced.

Fast-forward to today, and the guy tells us it's all love between him and the Academy. KH tells us he loves the Oscars, and there's no feeling about them pivoting away from tapping a single host after the catastrophe they went through with him.

He takes it further, calling it a "good thing" on both sides. That seemed to be the takeaway from 2019, where multiple presenters graced the stage. By all accounts, it worked.

Johnny Depp Jams Out on Guitar for Charity ... Josh Homme There Too

Exclusive
ROCKIN' OUT
TMZ.com

Johnny Depp didn't shy away from the spotlight this weekend when the opportunity to rock and roll presented itself ... if anything, he stepped up to the plate and hit a homer.

The actor popped up in Anaheim, CA Saturday night, where he performed onstage at Servite High School which was raising funds and playing tunes for a charity called the Sweet Relief Musicians Fund. It's an open pot of money pro artists can tap if they fall on hard times.

Anyway, Johnny was definitely willing to do his part -- playing tracks like "Taking Care of Business" and "Dancing with Myself" alongside other musicians up there.

BTW ... his own band, Hollywood Vampires, was not in attendance -- it was just Johnny who showed. Queens of the Stone Age singer Josh Homme was there too ... kind of a hodgepodge of talent, really.

Obviously, JD's a big fan of the cause ... and he was pretty gracious with his time. Check out how he reacted when they asked him to play one (or several) more songs.

The guy's a good sport.
