Trevor Noah, Dua Lipa Huggin' and Kissin' Before Big Announcement

There are reports Trevor Noah and Dua Lipa are "just friends." Really?

Now that we know Trevor's plan to exit "The Daily Show," which he announced Thursday, it seems kinda weird he'd have dinner with a casual friend the night before ... there are things to discuss with your closest allies when stuff like that is about to go down.

Well, it's possible they're just friends ... hugging and kissing on the street as friends often do.

Trevor sent shock waves in the TV world with his announcement he's leaving the show that made him super famous in America. As we reported, he has a ton of projects in the works, both in front of and behind the cam, and a daily show may have proved too much of a grind.

Both are unattached ... Trevor is no longer dating Minka Kelly, and Dua has Anwar Hadid in her rear view.

This would be kinda awesome, right?

Victoria Beckham Sparks Marriage Trouble Concerns ... Over Faded 'DB' Tattoo

UPDATE

11:51 AM PT -- A source close to the couple tells TMZ there are no marital issues between the two, Victoria's recently had several tattoos removed from her body.

Victoria Beckham has people worried her marriage with David Beckham might be on the rocks -- and it all has to do with what appears to be a fading tattoo.

Fans took notice of VB's wrist this week when she did a lipstick tutorial on IG, pointing out that some signature ink she normally rocks on her wrist seemed to be almost totally gone. It's a cursive "DB" ... obviously her husband's initials, and one she's had since their 10th anniversary.

From the video, it looks like the tattoo is in the process of being removed. You can still see traces of it -- but the tat is certainly faded, and there's no explanation thus far.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

Of course, this is still a cause of concern for some -- mostly because of Sylvester Stallone's recent tattoo drama -- but the public might be overreacting here.

Fact is, it appears Victoria is still wearing a wedding band on her left ring finger -- plus, her and David were photographed last week holding hands in public. On the flip side, however, he did attend the Queen's wake by himself a couple weeks ago.

It could all be much ado about nothing, but just to make sure ... we've reached out to reps for both David and Victoria about the missing ink. So far, no word back.

Rihanna Hits Studio with A$AP Rocky ... After Super Bowl News

Rihanna's already gearing up for her Super Sunday comeback ... at least that's what fans are hoping as she hits a studio with A$AP Rocky right on the heels of her big NFL news.

Rihanna and her BF were on the move Monday night, heading into a NYC studio session together -- and the timing is just fueling anticipation for her Super Bowl Halftime Show performance.

RiRi hasn't spoken out about the big gig yet, and the big question is whether she'll finally drop some new music before she takes the stage at Super Bowl LVII. So, every time she gets near a studio between now and February 12 it's gonna be news.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

She's been teasing new music for quite some time now. We know she's been really busy lately with all of her business ventures, and welcoming a baby with A$AP ... but if she's diving into new music, this would be the time.

SUPER EXPECTATIONS

You'll recall, Rih turned down an offer to headline at the 2019 Super Bowl Halftime Show because of her opposition to the way Colin Kaepernick was treated by the NFL ... but this time she's all in.

If this studio session is any indication of anything ... it's really possible they're creating something other than a baby together 👀🎶

Khloe Kardashian Not Dating Michele Morrone ... Just Posed For D&G Photo

Khloe Kardashian is not romantically involved with Italian heartthrob Michele Morrone ... despite her fans' reaction to a photo of them together at Milan Fashion Week.

A rep for the '365 Days' star tells TMZ Khloe and Michele met for the first time when they were both in attendance this weekend at Kim Kardashian's fashion show with Dolce & Gabbana.

The internet went crazy when Michele posted a photo of him and Khloe over the weekend on his Instagram story with tons of fan theories about a possible romance based on Michele ... but Michele's rep says D&G asked him and Khloe to take a picture together, and they obliged.

We're told Michele thought Khloe was very nice, but that's the extent of their relationship.

Bottom line ... Michele is very much living the single life over in Milan.

'Real Housewives' Meghan King Hits Strip Club With Bachelorette's Mike Johnson ... Gettin' Close & Personal In The Club!!!

HITTIN' THE CLUB
TMZ.com

"Real Housewives" star Meghan King and "Bachelorette" alum Mike Johnson appear to be getting really cozy ... enjoying each other's company at a popular strip club.

Meghan and Mike hit up Crazy Horse 3 in Las Vegas Thursday night, a source at the club tells us the two arrived hand in hand for the Local Love 2.0 party, which always attracts some big attention.

You can see from the video, the two were ALL over each other all night long -- they even snuck off to a VIP table at one point while Meghan spent some time on Mike's lap.

They also took some time to enjoy the dancers ... grabbing a money gun and spraying the dancers down with some cheddar at one point.

They left together around 1 AM, holding hands on the way out.

Sources close to the two are denying an actual fling, though -- telling TMZ they went to the club as part of her podcast they are doing together -- claiming there's nothing romantic going on between them, just good friends working together.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

While they might not be official, they're clearly having some fun together -- Meghan posted about who she "found" in Vegas that night ... calling Mike, "my new fave."

As we reported, Meghan got into with her ex-husband, Jim Edmonds, recently ... filing a TRO against him over what she described as "frequent and consistent verbal abuse" via texts, as well as their shared Family Wizard app which they use to co-parent.

Lamar Odom Not Dating Trans Actress ... We're Just Friends

UPDATE

4:24 PM PT -- Lamar tells TMZ ... he's not dating Daniiellè and never was, and he hasn't seen or spoken to her since July, when she left Los Angeles.

Lamar Odom is not romantically involved with transgender actress/model Daniiellè Alexis ... despite a few social media posts sparking speculation they're dating.

Sources close to Lamar tell TMZ ... the former NBA player is currently single and is not seeing Daniiellè, but they do know each other and are friendly -- which is pretty clear from her social media.

We're told Lamar and Daniiellè met back in June when he was in L.A. for the BET Awards. Our sources say Lamar was shopping when a car pulled up, Daniiellè hopped out and asked for a photo ... and afterward, they exchanged numbers.

They kept in touch, and when he recently moved back to L.A. they grabbed lunch together because they were both in town. Daniiellè's an aspiring actress, and our sources say they typically chat about the industry.

Daniiellè's posted a couple photos of Lamar, which got the dating rumor mill going ... but we're told they are just friends.

TMZ.com

BTW, our sources also tell us Lamar has no problems with the transgender community, in general, and obviously has no issue with Daniiellè being a transgender woman -- there's simply no romantic spark between them.

Rihanna & A$AP Rocky Hit the Recording Studio!!!

Rihanna and A$AP Rocky hit the studio Friday night ... adding more fuel to the rumor mill she's gonna drop another album!

She's been seen at the L.A. studio several times recently, so the seemingly endless wait for more music may be coming to an end.

RiRi was there with BF A$AP, who is mounting an aggressive defense to weapons charges. He's been hit with felony firearms charges for allegedly shooting A$AP Relli. Relli has filed a civil suit against Rocky as well.

Rocky's new lawyer, Joe Tacopina, told TMZ Friday, "Rocky didn't commit a crime. It was an extortion attempt by a former associate, who threatened to make false criminal accusations if Rocky didn't pay him."

ON THE SCENE
TMZ.com

Tacopina tells us he has 2 eyewitnesses who back Rocky's story ... not only that Relli wasn't hit by bullet fragments, but that no shot was even fired. In other words, Tacopina says Relli has made up the story in a "get rich quick scheme."

As we reported, Rocky previously pled not guilty to both criminal charges of assault with a semiautomatic firearm.

Tom Hanks And Tim Allen 'Toy Story' Reunion During Mystery Breakfast ... Sequel Afoot?!??

"Toy Story" could be getting a new sequel ... because of a mysterious breakfast date.

Check out these pics of Tom Hanks and Tim Allen chowing down low-key and somewhat undercover at a somewhat out-of-the-way restaurant in L.A.

They had breakfast at the restaurant inside the Luxe Sunset Boulevard Hotel on the Sunset Strip a few days ago -- the pics just surfaced. They were both wearing shades and sitting away from the normies.

As you know, Tom was the voice of Woody, and Tim voiced Buzz Lightyear in the 1995 flick. There have been several sequels since, but neither were in the last one -- "Lightyear" -- which was released in June.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

Tom took a shot at "Lightyear" producers during an interview, saying he wanted to do the sequel with Tim but "they didn't let Tim Allen do it. I don't understand that." It's clearly politics -- Tim's don't align with most of Hollywood, but Tom clearly doesn't think that matters.

Have producers had a change of heart?

Gisele Bündchen Admitted 'Concerns' Over Brady's Return ... In Offseason

Gisele Bündchen admitted she had "concerns" over Tom Brady's unretirement this offseason ... saying she expressed them to her NFL star hubby "over and over again."

The supermodel told ELLE in a recent interview that she was worried about the violence of football. She said she also wanted Brady to "be more present" around the house and their kids.

"I have definitely had those conversations with him over and over again," she said to the outlet. "But ultimately, I feel that everybody has to make a decision that works for [them]. He needs to follow his joy, too."

ELLE reports Gisele made the comments several weeks before she and Brady reportedly entered into a "rough patch" in their marriage -- a rift that supposedly got so bad, she briefly stopped living with the football player.

The outlet claims it reached back out to Gisele this month over the reports, but she "declined to comment on the speculation."

Of course, Gisele has said publicly that she's wanted Brady to call it quits for at least the last half-decade -- wishing he'd spend more time with the family. She's also said she doesn't believe he has anything left to prove on the field.

She did, though, appear to extend an olive branch to the quarterback before his season-opening game against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, tweeting, "Let's go @TomBrady ! Let's go Bucs !"

CONTINUOUSLY CHANGING
Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Brady -- who took 11 days off from Bucs training camp last month -- has yet to address the reports ... but he has told media members he's had "a lot of s*** going on."

Jason Oppenheim Not All Belly Kisses Are For Babies ... ALL Over GF in Mykonos!!!

At first glance, Jason Oppenheim's vacay pics with his model girlfriend make ya think there's "Selling Sunset" baby news coming, but upon closer inspection ... they're just hot and horny!!!

Jason and Marie-Lou Nurk are yachting around Mykonos with fellow 'Sunset' star, and Jason's ex-GF, Mary Fitzgerald and her husband, Romain -- and, for some reason, Jason decided to plant some kisses right on MLN's belly.

But, we're sure the universal sign for "we got one in the oven" is misplaced here, because other shots show Marie-Lou vaping ... and also, Jason later got a massive handful of her ass. Not exactly giving maternal instincts or parent-to-be vibes!

What it is giving is ... we're super into each other. Remember, the couple just made their public debut about a month ago in Hollywood at a Netflix event.

Word is Marie-Lou will appear in the next season of 'Sunset' ... which can't be the least bit awkward, considering JO now has 2 exes -- Mary and Chrishell Stause -- working in his real estate office.

That office holiday party's gonna be 🔥!!!

Harry Styles I Went to Venice to Sit and Spit ... Mocks Chris Pine Viral Video

HARRY 'SPITTIN' STYLES

Harry Styles is leaning into the whole "I hawked a loogie on Chris Pine" story by leaning in on it ... which is exactly what he did Wednesday night in concert.

Harry performed to a sold-out crowd at Madison Square Garden, where he told his fans he had just popped over to Venice to spit on his fellow costar of "Don't Worry Darling." No doubt he was trying to telegraph the story was BS, and the fans ate it up.

9/5/22
SNEAKY SPIT

As you know, a video's been circulating that shows Harry taking his seat next to Chris Pine at the Venice Film Festival and as he sits it looks like he spits on Chris's lap, and Chris reacts in a way that aligns with what lots of folks think.

Chris's rep called the story ridiculous, saying it never happened. However, a source very close to Chris tells TMZ the actor had said privately that it did indeed happen.

WHO KILLED MJ?

There may be more drama among the cast than on the screen. If the spit was real, it actually might be brilliant. More attention to the film ... right?

Larsa Pippen I'm Not Dating Marcus Jordan!!! ... Just Friends

Sorry, drama seekers ... Larsa Pippen is NOT hooking up with the son of her ex-husband's nemesis -- the 'Real Housewives' star and Marcus Jordan are strictly friends, TMZ Sports is told.

As we previously reported, Larsa and Michael Jordan's second oldest son were spotted dining together at Zuma in Miami on Sunday ... with witnesses telling us it looked like a double date with another couple.

Despite what some folks assumed by their public outing, we're told Larsa and Marcus are really just homies and aren't an item.

JUST A FRIEND
TMZ.com

It would have been a big mess if it were true -- Larsa's ex, Scottie, pretty much hates his old partner in crime ... which dates back to their playing days on the Chicago Bulls and was reignited during the "Last Dance" documentary.

As for why LP and MJ were together, we're told they happen to have a similar social circle ... so it was just a good ole fashioned hangout.

WHO KILLED MJ?

Larsa has been tied to guys like Malik Beasley and Harry Jowsey since splitting from Scottie ... but the rumors can be put to rest -- Jordan ain't making his way onto that list any time soon.

Adele Tied the Knot with Rich Paul? Fans Speculate After IG Clue

Adele's simply looking to celebrate her big Emmy win ... but her fans think there's something much bigger to toast, because of something she posted ... something that makes them think she and Rich Paul have said: "I Do."

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

The singer was "pleased as punch" to be one step closer to EGOT status Monday, winning Outstanding Variety Special for her TV concert, "Adele: One Night Only" -- and one image of her shiny new statuette shows a personalized game box also on the table.

The box, holding what appears to be game tiles, reads "The Paul's." So, while Adele was happy about her big win, the comments section was obviously flooded with other questions -- with one straight up asking "is you married?!"

WEDDING BELLS???
TMZ.com

She has yet to respond to the noise, despite the post already getting over 2.7M likes ... but as you know, Adele and Rich have been going strong publicly for over a year now, after meeting a few years back.

She moved in with Rich in May ... and even responded to engagement rumors in an interview with ELLE UK last month -- saying she "might as well be married."

WHO KILLED MJ?

"Might as well," huh? 🤔

Olivia Wilde Shoots Down Rumored Feud With Florence Pugh

Olivia Wilde doesn't sound like someone who is beefing with Florence Pugh ... shooting down the narrative there's infighting between director and actor.

Olivia addressed the elephant in the room Monday at a press conference for the movie she directed, "Don't Worry Darling," throwing cold water on the notion there's bad blood with the leading lady.

9/5/22
WHAT DRAMA?!

OW heaped tons of praise on FP at the Venice Film Festival in response to a question about clearing the air on the rumored falling out with Florence.

As we reported ... there's been tons of drama around "Don't Worry Darling," with rumors Florence was upset about how the shoot went down back in 2020, when OW reportedly started dating Harry Styles.

MAN OF THE HOUR
TMZ.com

Olivia, Harry and Florence all arrived separately to Venice ... only fueling the rumors of simmering beef ... but Olivia explained Florence had been busy shooting the 'Dune' sequel in Budapest. For his part, Harry is fresh off a concert in NYC.

The gang all made it on time for the movie premiere though ... and took group pictures.

WHO KILLED MJ?

Bottom line for Olivia ... all the drama surrounding the film is just gossip and noise.

She's essentially saying, don't worry darling.

Larsa Pippen Hobnobbing in Miami with MJ's Son ... Flashback to the '90s?!?

Scottie Pippen's probably not going to like this -- his ex-wife is in Miami seemingly getting cozy with his old teammate's son ... and not just any teammate, it's Michael Jordan.

Larsa Pippen was spotted Sunday at Zuma -- a Japanese restaurant right in the heart of downtown -- with none other than Marcus Jordan ... and the two of them, we're told, appeared to be on a double date of some sort with another couple at their table.

TMZ has obtained photos of the pair sitting down next to each other during the lunch, and apparently leaving too -- with LP leading the way and Marcus following closely behind.

Eyewitnesses tell us they were there for about 45 minutes, and that there were no obvious signs of PDA between them. However, our sources say Larsa seemed to be trying to keep a low profile and got a little skittish when she realized folks had spotted her/were taking pics.

She's been in town this weekend with her girlfriends, hosting some sort of retail store reopening at the Aventura Mall ... which is well-documented on her social media.

What wasn't shown, though, was who else might've been in her orbit -- and now, it looks like we know ... Mike's 2nd oldest was tagging along. The age difference isn't as drastic as it usually is with Larsa's would-be SOs. She's 48, and MJ is 31 ... so 17 years give or take.

She's been living her best single life for a while now -- and has been rumored to have been romantically linked to a number of dudes in their 20s over the past few years or so ... including Ben Simmons, Harry Jowsey and more memorably, a married Malik Beasley.

Of course, she and Scottie are no longer together ... haven't been in ages, so no harm no foul. Still, though, this one's gotta sting a bit -- assuming she is, in fact, seeing Marcus.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

As we've seen over the past year and change ... there's still a lot of hard feelings between Scottie and Michael dating back years to when they were on the Bulls together. And Marcus himself was obviously around back then during his father and Scottie's heyday in the NBA.

So, yeah ... a little awkward to say the least.

Olivia Wilde All Smiles in Venice Amid 'DWD' Drama ... Harry Arrives Separately

UPDATE

2:02 PM PT -- Deadline reports that Florence Pugh is going to miss the press conference for "Don't Worry Darling" on Monday, but will walk the red carpet and watch the actual movie ... and then split right away after that. Supposedly, this was all pre-planned -- as she's in the middle of a shoot in Budapest for 'Dune 2' ... at least that's the explanation being offered from insiders.

Olivia Wilde and her new movie have been in the headlines recently for all the wrong reasons -- but despite the drama, she's putting on a brave face for the world premiere.

The actress/director touched down in Venice, Italy Sunday for the self-named film festival that's already underway ... and where hers, "Don't Worry Darling," is set to be screened. She and the rest of the cast -- including Harry Styles and Florence Pugh -- were all expected to attend the red carpet together ... and it looks like OW might be first on the ground.

As you can see ... she was all smiles as she made her way through the floating city, posing for a selfie with a fan and signing autographs -- looking all business and determined.

The reason this is a big deal is because of what many perceive to be in-fighting between her and the cast ... namely, Florence. There's a lot to unpack, but basically -- FP hasn't been promoting this movie much, and has also kinda been snubbing Olivia on social media.

There are unconfirmed rumors Florence is upset with Olivia for how the 'DWD' shoot went down in 2020 ... when OW reportedly started her whirlwind romance with Harry. There's gossip/stories that Olivia might've been a bit absent at times, and Florence might be pissed.

Plus ... all that Shia LaBeouf stuff from a week ago -- that's a whole other can of worms.

Anyway, speaking of Harry ... he arrived in Venice as well this weekend -- although he was coming in solo, without Olivia (his current GF) by his side. The guy had a show in NYC last night, so it might not be that big a deal. Still, it's interesting with everything going on.

WHO KILLED MJ?

With all this projected beef, everyone's waiting to see how Florence and Olivia interact in front of cameras and while doing press ... and whether they'll address this at all. Frankly, the speculation and innuendo are being discussed more than the flick itself at this point.

Florence doesn't seem to have landed just yet -- but if we're being honest, yes ... we're a little worried, darling. 😬
