Cozying Up

Ariana Grande and Ethan Slater are fully out, and proudly presenting as a couple now ... as seen in this PDA-packed clip from a night out in Las Vegas.

TMZ obtained video of Ethan glued to Ariana's side as they were deep in convo during a swanky dinner at Nobu Caesars Palace. They took turns putting their arms around each other during the meal ... which was hosted by Universal after the couple -- and "Wicked" costars -- arrived at CinemaCon to hype the movie.

While it was, technically, a work event, they were still all about smiles and sweet nothings -- she even caressed his back while they chatted, with their eyes locked on each other.

Oakland A's Sacramento, Here We Come!!! ... Announce Temporary Home Before Vegas

The Oakland Athletics just confirmed the 2024 season will be their last in the Bay Area -- the organization will play at least three seasons in Sacramento before officially setting up shop in Las Vegas.

The A's announced Thursday they struck a deal to host home games at Sutter Health Park in West Sacramento while their new stadium is constructed in Sin City ... bringing the franchise's 57-season run in Oakland to an end.

A statement on the move said an option is in place to play a fourth season in West Sacramento ... depending on when the new crib is completed in Nevada.

It'll be a pretty interesting experience for MLB fans -- Sutter Health Park's capacity is 10,624 seated spectators ... and 14,014 total including standing room only/grass. It's the current home of the Sacramento River Cats -- the San Francisco Giants' AAA affiliate.

The A's have been used to playing in front of smaller crowds lately -- as fans have been boycotting games over team owner John Fisher's decision to leave town.

Speaking of, Fisher addressed the news on Thursday ... saying the team tried to keep the A's at the Oakland Coliseum before moving, but "the conditions to achieve an agreement seemed out of reach."

As for Vegas, the A's are planning to build a $1.5 billion stadium ... which features 33,000 seats, a dome and 18,000-square-foot scoreboard. The Tropicana resort is set to be demolished to make room for the venue.

Mike Vrabel Plays Craps In Las Vegas ... Enjoying Time Away From Coaching

Mike Vrabel's got a lot more free time on his hands these days -- it is, after all, his first season out of head coaching since 2017 -- and TMZ Sports has learned he's spending at least some of it in Sin City!

Check out photos we obtained of the former Tennessee Titans honcho in Las Vegas on Thursday evening ... you can see he was getting after it on a craps table at the Wynn.

One witness tells us it didn't seem like he won much -- hence the long look on his face -- but nonetheless, a bad day in Vegas has to feel better than a bad day on the coaching headset, right?!

Steve Wynn Stern Warning Over New Film Project ... Be Honest or Else!!!

Steve Wynn isn't hedging any bets when it comes to a just-announced film project about his life ... as he's hit producers with a stern message about their potential portrayal of him.

We've seen a copy of a letter issued to producers Scott Jay Kaplan, Emmet McDermott and author Christina Binkley after the industry vets optioned the rights to CB's book, 'Winner Takes All' -- which details Steve's rise and fall as a casino bigwig -- for a dramatic retelling.

The letter was sent from powerhouse attorney Patricia L. Glaser on behalf of Steve ... and it makes clear that the Sin City businessman won't tolerate creative liberties taken in any big or small dramatization of his life -- including what Kaplan and McDermott are working on.

The billionaire's legal team explicitly expressed their concern for the project ... citing what they allege is the author's "history of false statements and mischaracterizations regarding [Steve]" -- referencing the source material that'll serve as the inspiration for this project of theirs.

While Steve didn't threaten to put the kibosh on the movie here in this letter his attorney fired off -- not that he had any real right to stall the project -- he does demand, via Glaser, that Scott and Emmet verify every fact presented in the story and ensure that their sources are fully vetted. Translation ... no stone should be left unturned when it comes to research!

And it's pretty obvious that Steve means business here -- as the letter threatened legal action over any falsehoods that may be presented.

Even though it's clear that Steve has never been a fan of his depiction in 'Winner Takes All' ...  it doesn't appear he ever sued over the book in the 16 years since it's been published.

The book found itself on the NYT Best Seller List after chronicling the meteoric rise of Wynn -- who was forced to step down from Wynn Resorts amid sexual misconduct allegations ... claims he's denied, for which he's never been charged with a crime.

As for how Scott and Emmet feel about the stern letter ... sources tell us that they're already casting -- if that's any indication of how they're approaching the warning shot.

Bruno Mars no tiene deudas millonarias por el juego MGM desmiente los rumores

Bruno Mars no le debe millones al casino del MGM, a pesar de los recientes informes... TMZ ha indagado.

Un representante de MGM Resorts International le dice a TMZ que el cantante no tiene la supuesta deuda de juego de $50 millones -a pesar de que algunos recientemente afirmaron lo contrario- en cambio, MGM salió en defensa de Bruno diciendo que todo es falso.

De hecho, están muy emocionados de colaborar con el ganador del Grammy de nuevo en el futuro.

Y añaden: "Estamos orgullosos de nuestra relación con Bruno Mars, uno de los artistas más emocionantes y dinámicos del mundo. Desde sus espectáculos en Dolby Live en Park MGM hasta el nuevo salón Pinky Ring en Bellagio, la marca de entretenimiento de Bruno atrae a visitantes de todo el mundo. La asociación entre MGM y Bruno es duradera y se basa en el respeto mutuo. Cualquier especulación de lo contrario es completamente falsa; él no tiene ninguna deuda con MGM. Juntos, estamos entusiasmados por seguir creando experiencias inolvidables para nuestros huéspedes".

Esta actualización se produce poco después de que un informe comenzó a circular la semana pasada, el que afirmó que MGM básicamente tenía una supuesta factura de juego de Bruno valorada en decenas de millones. Mientras que Bruno aún no ha abordado el rumor, MGM dejó claro que no hay nada turbio en su relación de negocios. Por cierto, Bruno tiene una residencia próximamente allí.

Bruno se abrió previamente con James Corden en 2016 sobre ser un tahúr antes de alcanzar la fama mundial. En una aparición de "Carpool Karaoke" en "The Late Late Show", explicó que solía jugar al póquer para ayudar a pagar su alquiler en Los Ángeles, así que al tipo sí le gusta apostar.

Dicho esto, puedes apostar a que el MGM y Bruno tienen un futuro brillante.

Bruno Mars Doesn't Have $50M in Gambling Debt ... MGM Bats Down Story

Bruno Mars doesn't owe millions in gambling debt to MGM Resorts -- despite what a recent report claimed ... TMZ has learned.

A rep for MGM Resorts International tells TMZ ... the singer doesn't have a $50 million gambling tab on the books with them -- even though some recently alleged the opposite. Instead, MGM came to Bruno's defense ... calling the allegation he owes a massive sum completely false.

In fact, the Las Vegas hot spot is super excited to collaborate with the Grammy winner again in the future -- not exactly the tone someone would take with a dude who's got a fat bill.

They add ... "We’re proud of our relationship with Bruno Mars, one of the world’s most thrilling and dynamic performers. From his shows at Dolby Live at Park MGM to the new Pinky Ring lounge at Bellagio, Bruno’s brand of entertainment attracts visitors from around the globe. MGM and Bruno's partnership is longstanding and rooted in mutual respect. Any speculation otherwise is completely false; he has no debt with MGM. Together, we are excited to continue creating unforgettable experiences for our guests."

This update comes shortly after a report began circulating this past week that claimed MGM basically owned Bruno over an alleged gambling bill that was worth tens of millions. While Bruno has yet to address the gossip, MGM made it clear that there is nothing shady about their business relationship. BTW, Bruno's got an upcoming residency there at the resort.

Bruno previously opened up to James Corden in 2016 about being a card shark before hitting worldwide fame. In a "Carpool Karaoke" appearance on 'The Late Late Show,' he explained that he used to play poker to help pay his rent in L.A. ... so the dude does like to gamble.

Still, with that said ... MGM ain't about to send out the loan sharks -- he's good in their book.

'90 Day Fiancé' Stars Claim 'Rock of Love's Daisy de la Hoya is Stalking Them

"90 Day Fiancé" stars Mariah Fineman and Tom Brooks are accusing 'Rock of Love' alum Daisy de la Hoya of stalking them in their Las Vegas neighborhood … according to cops.

In a police report ... obtained by TMZ ... Mariah and Tom allege the first instance of harassment occurred in January. The couple told cops Daisy chased Tom in their neighborhood, got in his space, sniffed him, and declared her love for the TV personality.

Tom claims she would call out his name in the weeks following ... often inviting him inside for dinner. He says he was told by maintenance Daisy learned his name through his appearance on "90 Day Fiancé."

Tom alleges Daisy continued to appear wherever he was in the apartment complex for the next few weeks.


The report says Daisy also followed Mariah and Tom while they were out for a walk and repeatedly asked Tom if she could call him a Lyft or Uber -- an offer he declined.

Things allegedly escalated a few days later ... Tom claims Daisy chased Mariah and him out of their building as they made their way to their car and then got into Tom and Mariah's ride -- as the pair said they had unlocked their car in an attempt to escape the situation quickly.


Tom told officers Daisy rushed by the duo, jumped into the backseat and refused to leave for 20 minutes until officers were called to the scene. No arrests were made.

The couple says they eventually asked management to move them to a different building.

There may even be footage of the whole thing. Tom claims he has multiple videos of his exchanges with Daisy.

'DWTS' GLEB SAVCHENKO I'm Joining Chippendales ... As Celebrity Guest Host!!!

"Dancing With the Stars" pro Gleb Savchenko is trading his ballroom shoes for a bowtie and cuffs ... because he's joining Chippendales as the latest guest host with the male revue.

Our sources tell us Gleb is gearing up for a limited engagement with the legendary Chippendales hunks ... joining the guys onstage for 3 weeks of performances at the Rio Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.

We're told Gleb will be doing the Chippendales thing in Sin City from April 25 to May 12 ... and once he gets his feet wet, he's going to hit the road and join the world tour cast for 6 Atlantic City shows in July at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.

Gleb -- who partnered with Chrishell Stause on 'DWTS' -- says he's thrilled and honored by the opportunity, and it's going to be the first time he's performed in Las Vegas.

Be on the lookout ... our sources say Gleb's a big Patrick Swayze fan, and he's going to bust out some of Patrick's iconic dance moves during his Chippendales run.

Frankly, Gleb checks all the Chippendales boxes here ... he's a tall, dark and handsome dancer with a pretty solid stage presence to boot, so this move makes a lot of sense.

Gleb's joining Chippendales as the show celebrates its 45th anniversary this year, and he's got some big ... shoes to fill as far as celeb guest hosts go.

Tyson Beckford, Ian Ziering, Joey Lawrence, "Jersey Shore" star Vinny Guadagnino and Nyle DiMarco have all done the Chippendales thing over the years ... and now it's Gleb's turn!!!

Scorpion Scare Las Vegas Hotel Guest Bit In Balls ... By Eight-Legged Parasite


11:48 AM PT -- Michael Farchi joined "TMZ Live" to take our viewers through the scorpion sting debacle that went viral earlier this morning. He actually now claims The Venetian never comped his room and made him pay for food and various other expenses.


A Las Vegas hotel guest was STUNG in his testicles by a scorpion while asleep in bed – causing him to wake up in incredible pain and utter shock and terror.

On Monday, Michael Farchi sat down with KLAS 8 News Now to discuss his horrifying real-life nightmare at The Venetian Las Vegas on December 26.

Farchi told the reporter he was sleeping in his underwear under the bed sheets in his room when, at around 8 AM, he suddenly felt pain in his groin area.

He described the sensation as "somebody stabbing me in my private area" with a "sharp glass or a knife."

Farchi said he dashed into the bathroom only to discover the orange scorpion attached to his underwear. YIKES!!!

The California man managed to slip out of his briefs and snap photos of the nasty creature dangling from his undies. He then went to the hospital for treatment because he said he was in "a lot of pain."

The next day, Farchi and his family checked out of the hotel, but not before he filed an incident report with staff, detailing what allegedly happened. “Everybody was in shock, nobody believed,” Farchi told KLAS, pointing out management comped his room.

Farchi added that he had no clue how the scorpion got into his bed.

In a statement to KLAS, a Venetian rep said the resort followed all protocols for this type of incident. Farchi's attorney went on to say that guests should always inspect their rooms and the surrounding areas upon checking in.

Farchi says he's now exploring possible legal action against The Venetian.

Jamie Lynn Spears No Mention of Xtina in Vegas Recap ... Appeasing Sister Britney???

Jamie Lynn Spears may have realized she'd be pissing off her sister, Britney Spears, by showing off her Christina Aguilera residency drop-in ... so, she made sure not to in a recap.

Brit's famous younger sibling shared a series of sweet memories from her Sin City getaway over the weekend -- where she was enjoying a bachelorette party with a solid group of ladies. Lots of highlights in her IG post ... but interestingly, none capturing Xtina onstage.

Take a look at some of Jamie Lynn's standout snaps from the getaway -- she made sure to point out they hit up a 'Magic Mike Live' show .. and just hitting the town in general.

Yet, Brit's kid sis noticeably didn't post a single pic/vid from Christina's performance at the Voltaire at the Venetian in Vegas. In fact ... Jamie Lynn said her friend -- who is set to get married soon -- and the male stripper show were the only things worth leaving her kids for.


Of course ... there are a lot of complicated dynamics at play here -- which could have a role in Jamie Lynn's social media choices. BS and CA may go all the way back to the Mickey Mouse Club -- but fans have pitted the pop princesses against each other for decades.

It's not just fans though ... Britney and Christina have had rumored beef as well, for realsies. Whether any of that animosity has carried over into the 2020s is anyone's guess -- but it would appear Jamie Lynn was mindful of their history in going through her Vegas vacay.

On its face, you could argue JLS was just trying to keep the peace and not ruffle feathers.

In any case, here's hoping she had a good time ... sure looked like she did from our POV.


cantando en el club

Travis Kelce podría haber estado sin Taylor Swift este fin de semana mientras celebraba con sus compañeros de equipo en Las Vegas (de nuevo), pero claramente la tenía en su mente...

Videos de la estrella de la NFL cantando "Love Story" en el XS Nightclub de Las Vegas están circulando por redes sociales, y teniendo en cuenta su entusiasmo por un clásico de Taylor, podemos afirmar que la echaban de menos.

"all night long"
XS Nightclub at Wynn Las Vegas

Estos clips capturan solo un momento de la noche de Travis. Él no solo cantó canciones de Taylor, también gozó un montón de otras melodías de diversos estilos.

Ha habido algo de crítica swiftie, ya que Travis se rodeó de un montón de mujeres atractivas durante su noche en Las Vegas, pero Tay Tay parece ser la que ocupa su mente.

En cuanto al resto de la celebración, bueno, ya lo cubrimos bastante bien. Estuvo disfrutando junto a Patrick Mahomes y casi todos los demás jugadores de los Chiefs que ayudaron al equipo a ganar el Super Bowl hace unas semanas.

amor en sydney

Travis estuvo en Sydney por un par de días con Taylor antes de volar de regreso a Las Vegas para la victoria con los chicos, y luego se fue de fiesta.

Taylor, mientras tanto, estaba ocupada terminando el resto de su estancia en Australia y pronto va a volar a Singapur para más espectáculos. No está claro si Travis está en los planes o no.

Travis Kelce Sings Taylor Swift's 'Love Song' While Raging in Las Vegas


Travis Kelce might've been without Taylor Swift this weekend while raging with his teammates in Las Vegas (again) -- but he certainly had her on his mind ... take a look.

Videos of the NFL star belting out "Love Story" at XS Nightclub at the Wynn Las Vegas are circulating all over social media -- and considering his enthusiasm over a T-Swift classic, it's safe to say she was sorely missed for the good time he and the Chiefs were having here.

XS Nightclub at Wynn Las Vegas

These clips capture just a snapshot of Travis' rager ... and he wasn't just singing Taylor tracks -- dude was out there screaming his lungs out to a ton of other tunes, celebratory and otherwise.


There's been a little criticism that TK surrounded himself with a bunch of hot women during his night out in Vegas with the boys -- but clearly ... Tay Tay is front and center in his heart.

As for the rest of the celebration ... well, we covered it pretty well already. He was enjoying himself next to Patrick Mahomes and just about every other Chiefs player who helped the team win the Super Bowl a few weeks ago ... with everyone coming back for round 2.


Travis was only in Sydney for a couple days with Taylor before he hightailed it out of there and flew back to Vegas for yet another victory lap with the guys ... and they partied hard.

Taylor, meanwhile, was busy finishing out the rest of her Australia stint -- and soon, she'll be flying off to Singapore for more shows. Unclear if Travis is tagging along for that or not.

In the meantime ... carry us out of here on a high note, Trav!

Travis Kelce Aterriza de nuevo en Las Vegas... Después de un viaje relámpago a Australia

Travis Kelce parece estar de vuelta en Estados Unidos, luego de aterrizar en Las Vegas el sábado por la mañana tras un fin de semana torbellino en Australia.

El campeón del Super Bowl al parecer aterrizó en la Ciudad del Pecado alrededor de las 8:30 AM del sábado, según People y aparentemente confirmado por los registros de vuelo disponibles en Internet, dando por finalizadas una de las citas amorosas más rápidas en la memoria reciente.

Fuimos los primeros en contarles que Travis despegó de Sydney el sábado por la tarde y aterrizó el sábado por la mañana en Las Vegas, por el cambio de hora.

Todo es bastante confuso, pero básicamente Travis estuvo unos dos días en Sydney. Aterrizó el miércoles antes de subirse de nuevo en un jet y despegar a Las Vegas para pasar el rato con sus compañeros de equipo en los Chiefs.

La razón para volver es que quiere celebrar con sus compañeros de equipo, luego de su tercera victoria en el Super Bowl en 5 años.

Los chicos de Kelce ya comenzaron la fiesta, por cierto, Patrick Mahomes y algunos de sus compañeros estuvieron en Zouk Nightclub el sábado por la noche.

Kelce hizo un montón de actividades en sus dos días con Taylor. La pareja estuvo en el zoológico de Sydney y luego Travis vio a su chica actuando en vivo en su concierto, donde los dos se abrazaron apasionadamente.

T-Swift también le demostró su cariño a su novio durante el show, cambiando nuevamente la letra de la canción "Karma" para incluir una referencia suya. No es la primera vez que lo hace. Hablando de metas de pareja.

En pocas palabras, a pesar de pasar algún tiempo separados, Traylor parece ir más en serio que nunca, lo que coincide con lo que escuchamos durante la investigación para nuestro nuevo documental sobre su historia de amor.

"TMZ Investigates: Taylor & Travis: Ultimate Love Story" se estrena este lunes, 26 de febrero a las 9/8 central en FOX y se transmitirá al día siguiente en Hulu.

Travis Kelce Reportedly Lands Back in Las Vegas ... After Quick Australia Trip

Travis Kelce appears to be back stateside ... landing in Las Vegas early Saturday morning -- after a whirlwind weekend down under.

The Super Bowl champ reportedly touched down in Sin City around 8:30 AM Saturday according to People and seemingly confirmed by online flight records -- marking the end of one of the fastest lovers' liaisons in recent memory.

We broke the story ... sources told us Travis took off from Sydney on Saturday afternoon but he landed Saturday morning -- Vegas local time, 'cause of the time change.

It's all pretty confusing but basically, TK was in Syndey for about two days, landing Wednesday before hopping right back on a jet and taking off for Vegas to hang out with his Chiefs teammates.

His reason for jetting back ... he wants to celebrate with his K.C. teammates in the aftermath of their third Super Bowl win in 5 years, and he's heading back to the site of their most recent conquest to live it up.

Kelce's guys have already started the party BTW ... with Patrick Mahomes and some of his teammates partying at Zouk Nightclub Friday night.

Kelce packed a ton of activities into his two days with Taylor ... with the pair hitting the zoo down in Sydney before Travis watched his lady live in concert -- where the two engaged in some passionate PDA.

T-Swift also showed her man some love during the show when she changed up the lyrics of "Karma" again to include a reference to him. Not the first time she's done it during her tour either ... talk about couple goals.

Bottom line, despite spending some time apart ... Traylor seems stronger than ever which falls in line with what we heard while researching our new documentary on their love story.
