She adds ... "We are grateful for each other and as always, our children will remain our priority."

Christina and Ant started dating way back in October 2017, and they tied the knot in a super-secret wedding at their home in Newport Beach in December 2018, going with a "winter wonderland" theme for the nuptials.

The former couple welcomed their first child a little over a year ago, a baby boy named Hudson London Anstead.

Ant, who hosts "Wheeler Dealers," is now Christina's second famous ex ... she was previously married to her "Flip or Flop" co-star, Tarek El Moussa, and they enjoyed tons of success together before an extremely public split in 2016 that ultimately led to a nasty 2018 divorce.

'Even Stevens' Ren and Beans Reunite!!!

Here's the "Even Stevens" reunion we've all been waiting for ... Ren Stevens is back, and she's bringing along her trusty sidekick Beans!!!

The "Even Stevens" reunion 17 years in the making went down on Christy Carlson Romano's YouTube series, "Christy's Kitchen Throwback," and she's got a lot of catching up to do with Steven Anthony Lawrence.

Steven, best known for playing fan-favorite and Shia LaBeouf's on-screen pal Beans, has largely remained out of the public eye since the hit Disney Channel show ended way back in 2003, and ya gotta see how Beans looks these days!

As you know, Steven's character was famous for his love of bacon on the show ... but he tells Christy he didn't eat bacon for 3 months after filming wrapped, and he even dealt with nightmares, cold sweats and traumatic experiences just from swine.

Fortunately, Steven's gotten over his bacon issues and is back to eating the best part of the pig. This is Beans we're talking about, after all!!!

It's pretty cool ... Steven also explains how Beans went from a potential one-episode guest star to a series regular and cult favorite ... who Christy credits with saving the show!

Christy and Steven also chop it up in the kitchen on potential future projects ... how does an "Even Stevens" spinoff sound?!?

If that's not enough ... wait till you hear Steven's pitch for Beans on 'The Bachelor.'

Kanye West I'll Get Back Taylor's Masters ... Going Right to Scooter!!!

Kanye West is back from his Twitter time-out with an outrageous claim -- he's offering to get back Taylor Swift's master recordings from Scooter Braun!!!

Yeezy just offered his services to his longtime enemy, vowing ... "I'M GOING TO PERSONALLY SEE TO IT THAT TAYLOR SWIFT GETS HER MASTERS BACK. SCOOTER IS A CLOSE FAMILY FRIEND."

The jaw-dropping move came in the middle of Ye's most recent Tweet storm ... hence his ALL CAPS mood. Prior to this, he's been railing for days against the music industry ... demanded that artists, himself included, deserve to own their recordings.

This is the second time Taylor's come up this week on his Twitter feed. Earlier, he posted a text exchange with someone who's suggesting he follow Taylor's lead and either try to buy his masters or re-record them.

Remember, Taylor is beefing with Scooter -- Justin Bieber and Demi Lovato's manager -- who recently bought Big Machine Records which owns Swift's first 6 album masters. Taylor is determined to get her OG tunes back and, as of now, plans to re-record the songs that made her famous.

Of course, the idea of Kanye seeing himself as Taylor's knight in shining armor on this, or any, issue is pretty laughable at best -- and horribly offensive at worst.

Taylor's been fighting this fight on her own just fine -- calling out Scooter specifically, and the music industry in general, for bullying women. Not to mention the fact Kanye's said some awful things about Taylor over the years ... so this is one helping hand we're guessing she'd rather do without.

Still, Kanye seems to think he can broker a deal between Taylor and Scooter, who he counts as a close family friend.

ULTRALIGHT STREAM

No word if he's also offering to make sure Taylor's Grammys get peed on too.

The Rock Goes 'Black Adam' On Gate During Power Outage ... Rock Smash!!!

Breaking News

Whaddaya do when the power is out, you have to get to work and your electric-powered gate won't open??

If you're Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, you channel your inner 'Black Adam,' rip that MFer right off the brick wall and slam it to the ground!!!

Seriously!!!

Johnson -- who was recently cast to play the super-strong DC Comic villain -- gave the play-by-play of what he's dubbing "not my finest hour" after a storm knocked his power out on Friday.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

"I tried to override the hydraulic system to open the gates, which usually works when power goes out - but this time it wouldn’t," Rock said.

Oh no!!

"Made some calls to see how fast I can get the gate tech on site, but I didn’t have 45min to wait."

Double oh no!!

"By this time, I know I have hundreds of production crew members waiting for me to come to work so we can start our day."

So ... in true 'Black Adam' fashion, Johnson used the strength of Amon to rip the damn thing down!!

"I pushed, pulled and ripped the gate completely off myself," Johnson said.

"Ripped it completely out of the brick wall, severed the steel hydraulics and threw it on the grass."

Success!!!

"My security team was able to meet the gate technician and welders about an hour later — and they were apparently, 'in disbelief and equally scared' as to how I ripped it off"

Sure as hell seems like DC got the right guy to play 'Black Adam!!'

"Not my finest hour, but a man’s gotta go to work."

Dr. Dre Divorce Nicole Accuses Him of Hiding Assets, Domestic Violence ... Dre Sources Call BS

Exclusive Details

Dr. Dre's estranged wife says he secretly transferred valuable assets to himself after they split -- in particular his stage name and "The Chronic" -- but sources connected to Dre call her claim "ridiculous" and an attempt to embarrass him into submission.

Nicole Young just filed legal docs claiming the mogul created a solely-owned, brand new holding company and transferred into it what she claims is joint property -- trademarks for "Dr. Dre" and "The Chronic." Nicole says it's a blatant attempt to hide assets that are community property."

Sources connected to Dre tell TMZ, "They were married in 1996. Chronic came out in '92 and Dr. Dre used his name since the 80's, so it's all his and his alone."

According to Nicole's legal docs, she says Dre transferred the trademarks after he allegedly kicked her out of their home and before he threatened on June 27, 2020 to divorce her. Nicole beat him to the punch ... filing for divorce just 2 days later.

Nicole calls Dre's move an "epic failure and reveals the true nature of his character, or lack thereof.” Nicole says the Dre trademark was first filed in 1997 -- when they were already married.

Our Dre sources fire back, "It's the act of a desperate woman who finally realized that the iron-clad prenup she signed doesn't win her the lottery." As we reported, they had a prenup, which Nicole says she signed under duress. She also says he ripped it up several years into the marriage. He strongly denies he ever ripped it up.

Nicole also claims she was the victim of physical, emotional and financial abuse during their marriage. She does not outline specific instances of abuse. Our Dre sources say to that ... "In their 26 years together, there has never been any hint or claim of threatened or actual physical violence and the insinuation is an insult to actual victims of domestic abuse." A Dre source adds there was one incident of violence 30 years ago -- not involving Nicole -- and Dre copped to it and "paid the price for it."

As we've reported ... Dre and Nicole have been in the middle of a contentious divorce battle. She's asking for just under $2 mil a month in spousal support while the divorce winds its way through the legal system.

Joe Jonas, Sophie Turner List Manhattan Pad For Cool $5.9 Mil!!!

Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner are getting out of the Manhattan real estate market ... they just put their super-expensive condo on the market.

The singer and actress are looking for $5.9 million. Sources connected to the couple tell TMZ ... they listed it because, simply put, they just don't use it. The pad's got 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms on 2,907 square feet of living space. It also has an awesome 1,500-square-foot deck.

The rather small luxury building was built in 2015 ... with only 11 units on 8 floors. It's got a 24-hour doorman ... something lots of high-end buildings have. The condo is pretty dramatic ... you step out of the private elevator into a jaw-dropping, 49-foot loft-like living space.

Carl Gambino and Adam Modlin of Modlin Group are the listing agents.

Walmart Confrontation 'Don't Call Me No N*****!!!'

SAY IT AGAIN, SEE WHAT HAPPENS
LaTonya Berry/Facebook

Racial tension is boiling over in a Georgia Walmart ... where a Black shopper says a white woman called her the n-word and, as you'd imagine, things got very heated afterward.

The heated confrontation went down Thursday in Stone Mountain, GA ... and video shows a Black shopper daring a white woman to call her "n*****" again.

Things get pretty tense in the checkout line, with the Black shopper threatening violence if the white woman utters a racial slur to her face.

According to the person who shot the video, the white woman tried cutting the line and called the Black shopper the n-word at least two times before the recording started.

Fortunately, cooler heads prevail and there was no physical violence this time. Side note: everyone in this video is at least complying with store rules and wearing a mask. As we've seen, that's not a given these days.

Local law enforcement said they were not called to the scene.

Patagonia Clothing Our New Tag Line ... 'Vote the A**holes Out'

The Patagonia clothing brand taking a political stand is nothing new ... but the tags in its organic shorts are, and the message they're pushing is change.

The company is now confirming it's indeed putting a tag that reads, "VOTE THE ASSHOLES OUT" in some of its clothing. A pic of the tag spread like wildfire on Twitter last week, but no one knew if it was legit.

Brad Wieners, the company's director of copy, says ... "With an assist fm @BallotReady we've got a widget to help folks folo thru on that advice, too" followed by a link directing consumers to its website calling for Americans to vote climate deniers out of office.

Hmmm ... think they might be referring to President Trump?

TRUMP'S TAKE
Fox News

You'll recall the current occupant of the White House most recently laughed off climate change during a wildfires briefing with California Governor Gavin Newsom.

Patagonia -- which closes its stores on Election Day -- and the Trump administration have been at odds for some time now. The company sued the administration in 2017 to protect national monuments. The company also donated the money it got from tax cuts to environmental groups.

Putting their money where their mouth is.

Tyron Woodley Colby Covington Is a Total Fraud ... Political Schtick Is an Act

Tyron Woodley says Colby Covington isn't really a "MAGA" poster boy at heart -- claiming it's all an act for attention.

Tyron and Colby go back years -- they used to be teammates at American Top Team before becoming enemies.

Now, they're set to settle their beef once and for all on Saturday -- and Colby has been promoting the fight as a Republican vs. Democrat throw down.

"You got red versus blue," Colby said Thursday ... "You got me, capitalism, versus him, communism. And, you got me, MAGA, versus him, maggot."

You may have seen Colby hanging with President Donald Trump over the weekend -- POTUS showered Covington with praise.

But, Tyron says the REAL Colby is NOTHING like the character he pushes to the public ... insisting he used to be a "culture vulture" who was "in my gym doing the Nae Nae"

Tyron says Colby "created this entire image and culture based upon trying to get my attention ... and guess what, now you got it."

So, who's the real Colby?

"Colby Covington is a lost soul," Woodley says ... "He's a selfish individual. He's burned so many bridges. Burned a bridge with Jon Jones as a roommate, Jorge Masvidal as a roommate, a teammate and friend, myself, American Top Team and the list just goes on."

Tyron says he's excited to finally stop the talking and fight it out on Saturday. #CantWait

Toddler Parents Sue Trump He Turned Cutest Vid Ever ... Into a Racist Meme!!!

THE ORIGINAL VIDEO
Jukin

The parents of those 2 toddlers in the viral video showing them running toward each other and joyfully embracing are going after President Trump for twisting it to push his own divisive agenda.

Both sets of parents are suing Trump, his campaign and the person responsible for doctoring the heartwarming 2019 video to make it have a "Racist Baby" theme. Let us explain ...

The original clip shows the 2-year-olds -- one black, one white -- on a sidewalk in NYC after the first day of school ... hugging and clearly elated to see each other.

According to the legal docs -- and anyone with eyes -- the vid went viral "as the epitome of love and unity" and "enjoying the warmth and companionship" of a friend.

The parents say a week after the adorable video went viral, someone made a manipulated version which "created a negative and racist overtone."

The doctored version -- which is made to look like a CNN Breaking News clip -- takes a small portion of the original vid where the black toddler is running away from the white toddler, and according to the suit, "maliciously" added the graphic ... 'Terrified Todler(sic) Runs From Racist Baby' and thereafter, 'Racist Baby Probably A Trump Voter.'"

Fast-forward to June 18, 2020 ... President Trump tweets a post featuring the doctored video. The parents claim he did this "to exploit the children's images for his own purposes and gain" ... and to push "his brand of sensationalism in complete disregard for the truth."

Though the doctored vid was removed for violating Twitter rules, the parents claim it racked up 20 million views in a short period of time and the ordeal has caused them great distress, fright, shock, anguish and humiliation.

The parents are suing Trump for using their video without permission and inflicting emotional distress and want significant damages.

Tory Lanez Sued You Beat the Crap Out of Me In LIV Nightclub Attack!!!

More legal trouble for Tory Lanez ... this time it's a man claiming the rapper went on a menacing attack in one of Miami's hottest nightclubs.

Christopher Harty is suing, claiming Tory and his security detail -- or other members of his crew -- beat him to a pulp while at LIV Nightclub. In docs, obtained by TMZ, Harty says he was in the club in November 2019 when things went south. He claims Tory started to verbally antagonize him, and that the trash talk eventually escalated to Tory taking a swing at him and landing a punch.

Harty claims Tory's security detail or crew also joined in ... punching, kicking and beating him. The suit includes a 5-second video that shows a ruckus but it's hard to make out if Tory's part of the melee.

He never says what triggered the initial verbal exchange -- but claims the physical beatdown left him with blunt force trauma to his head, neck, chest and back and multiple contusions and bruises to his body.  He's suing Tory for unspecified damages.

This comes as Tory is already in hot water with the L.A. County D.A. over allegedly shooting Megan Thee Stallion ... and for gun possession.

We've reached out to Tory for comment, so far no word back.
