Rihanna threw a big bash in the Big Apple Friday night, and A$AP Rocky was nowhere in sight.

RiRi threw the party at Bergdorf Goodman in Midtown Manhattan, and, of course, lots of folks showed. Unclear if she's really dating A$AP, but they've definitely been hanging together since her breakup with Hassan Jameel after 3 years of dating.

As we reported, Rihanna and Rocky showed up together at the YAMS Day benefit concert in Brooklyn. She also went to Sweden to hit up his show. They also showed up together at the British Fashion Awards show. In other words, they've been together a fair amount recently.

NOT A WORD SPOKEN

We got Rihanna entering her party late Friday, but she was mum on A$AP Rocky.

Miley and Liam This Town Ain't Big Enough for Both of Us!!! ... Hit Up Same Oscar Party

Mega

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth had a short marriage and a rough divorce, so it had to be awkward for them to land at the same pre-Oscar bash.

Miley and Liam hit up the WME party Friday night in Bev Hills. There are no pics of them together, but there's little doubt each knew the other was there.

Mega

Tons of celebs showed up ... Jason Momoa, Usher, Miguel, Michael B. Jordan, Jonah Hill and Rami Malek.

Here's the thing. Miley and Liam are actually still hubby and wife. The divorce doesn't become final until Feb. 22nd.

We don't know who they brought as their plus 1s. No vid or photos of Miley's BF Cody Simpson or Liam's girlfriend, Gabriella Brooks.

As we showed you yesterday, Liam is giving Thor a run for his money ... whatever he's done over the last few weeks ... well, it's working.

Lori Harvey Has Dad Given Future's Approval? ... Yeeeeah, I Gotta Go!!!

TMZ.com

Lori Harvey had just one answer when asked if her man Future's been father-approved -- BOY, BYE!!! Yeah, she played it coy with our camera guy.

We got Lori out at LAX Friday morning and, of course, we had to ask if Steve Harvey's got a crazy screening process when it comes to her boyfriends. Lori admits Steve's very protective ... but is he over barring and going full CIA mode?

Well, Lori wouldn't let up but when our camera guy finally worked up the courage to ask about Future, Lori played it safe and bolted. Smart kid.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

As we reported ... Future posted a picture up close and personal with Lori last month living it up in Jamaica. He rightfully noted, "Life is Good." They had been linked together in Nigeria but it became official on their Jamaica trip to celebrate her 23rd birthday.

Now ... asking her if Steve's approved of Future's a legit question considering Steve wrote a book for women on playing the dating game. Seems the jury's still out ... or is it?

'Dukes of Hazzard' star John Schneider is one stingy son of a gun, according to his ex-wife ... who claims he owes her 7 figures and she's taking extreme measures to get it.

John's ex, Elvira Schneider, claims the actor owes her more than $1 million in unpaid spousal support, dating back 4 years ... according to new docs obtained by TMZ.

All in, Elvira says Bo Duke's shorted her $1,115,824. And, you thought Boss Hogg was pissed?!? BTW, that massive figure includes a previously agreed-upon 10 percent interest rate.

As we first reported, John was ordered to pay $18,911 per month back in September 2016, while they were still hammering out the divorce. They finally reached a settlement last August, and his monthly nut jumped to $25,000.

John's ex thinks he should have no problem squaring up -- she claims he's raking in $172,777 PER MONTH!

If he can't pay it all in one lump sum, not to worry ... Elvira's got a plan. She's asked the court to give her a slice of John's income from 30 different studios and production companies that pay him.

Demi Lovato Nothing Brewing w/ MGK ... We're Just Friends

Exclusive Details
Mega

Demi Lovato is NOT striking up a romance with Machine Gun Kelly ... even though they were spotted leaving a club together in the wee hours of the morning.

Here's the deal ... Demi and MGK were photographed leaving Soho House West Hollywood around 2 AM Wednesday, walking out from the members-only club in lockstep. This IS Hollywood, so of course, this sparked dating speculation, but we've learned the rumors have no steam.

Sources close to the situation tell TMZ ... there's nothing romantic going on between Demi and MGK, and they were at Soho House to hang out with a mutual friend. Yes, they walked out together, but we're told they departed in separate vehicles.

So, to any interested parties out there ... Demi and MGK are both very much single.

SINGING HER HEART OUT
NFL/FOX

As you know ... Demi's fresh off a couple of milestone performances, singing the National Anthem at Super Bowl LIV in Miami and premiering her new single "Anyone" at the Grammy Awards.

MGK was most recently linked to Kate Beckinsale, but she denied they were dating. Ditto for Demi.

Mel B Ex-Husband Wages War ... Wants Full Custody

Exclusive
TMZ.com

Mel B's ex-husband is fresh off a major court victory but again he's coming for a pound of flesh in his custody war with the Spice Girl.

Stephen Belafonte's asking the court to grant him full legal and physical custody of their 8-year-old daughter, Madison, claiming Mel B's all but abandoned her after moving to the UK ... this according to new legal docs obtained by TMZ.

Mel's ex claims he's been the sole caregiver of Madison for the majority of 2018 and much of 2019. He says Mel's ensconced in England and absent from Madison's life. Stephen also wants Mel to have access to Madison but only in L.A. and only supervised visitation.

As we reported ... Stephen -- who has had custody issues with Mel since settling their heated divorce -- got a judge last December to block Mel from taking their daughter to the UK for the holidays. At the time ... he claimed Madison was afraid Mel would hurt her. He also claimed Mel's asking their daughter for dirt on him.

Stephen claims he doesn't want to subject Madison to Mel's alleged verbal and psychological abuse. He claims he couldn't get a hold of Mel for days last Thanksgiving and when Mel's nanny dropped off Madison with Stephen, Madison told him "her mother would make her sit in a dark room and repeatedly question her over and over and demand answers from her."

Stephen claims this is why Madison "also told me that she was afraid her mother would hurt her." Moving forward, Stephen wants to make all parental decisions (medical care, schooling, etc.) when it comes to their daughter.

The judge has yet to sign off on Stephen's request.

Kendall Jenner and Ben Simmons Oil Up, Strip Down ... Sunbathing in MIA

Breaking News
Mega/SplashNews.com

Forget a Super Bowl hangover, the party continues for Kendall Jenner and Ben Simmons ... who spent their Monday chillin' by the pool in Miami ... and good lord, they're attractive!

Bendall (that's what we're gonna call them now) went to the Super Bowl together on Sunday where they made it pretty clear to everyone they're together -- despite an on-and-off past.

Fast forward to Monday morning where normies spotted the celeb couple taking in some sun and healthy drinks by the pool of their fancy Miami hotel.

Kendall was still sporting some swag from Stormi's big 2nd birthday in Los Angeles -- one of the biggest, craziest birthday parties we've ever seen.

Clearly, Kendall flew out right after the bash ... because she's RICH, Y'ALL ... and that's what rich people do.

As for Ben ... the Philadelphia 76ers star is actually in town to play the Miami Heat on Monday afternoon in what should be a pretty competitive game.

Hydrate, bro.

G-Eazy All Up on Meg Thee Stallion!!! Makes it IG Official Too

TMZ Composite

And your Super Bowl weekend MVP goes to ... G-Eazy!!! Give the man some kinda trophy, 'cause looks like he scored in Miami with Meg Thee Stallion.

Meg and G were all over each other ... hugging and snuggling as he planted kisses all over her face. Unclear exactly where they were at the time of hook-up, but they were sprawled out on a couch with other people around at a party.

G-Eazy posted the selfie vid, because ... who wouldn't??!! We don't know if they're a legit couple or just a weekend one-off but sure seems like he wants it to be official. He posted a pic of her -- in the same outfit from their video -- and slapped 4 hearts on it.

TBH ... Meg was, arguably, paying more attention to the lens than G-Eazy in the video. So, if they're the real deal, she's gonna make him work for it. Deservedly so!

We're guessing Halsey won't be sending any congrats to her ex-BF. Looks like he found his new bae one day after Halsey -- who was also in MIA -- went off on a guy who heckled her by yelling G-Eazy's name.

Gayle King on R. Kelly's Ex Azriel Was Lying to Me, You Say??? ... Get Better, Sweetheart

Exclusive
I WANT THE BEST FOR HER
TMZ.com

Gayle King doesn't seem surprised in the least that R. Kelly's ex-girlfriend is now confessing she lied to the CBS anchor, but more importantly ... she wishes her well in her recovery.

We got the longtime news personality Saturday night in Miami and asked about Azriel Clary recently giving a tell-all interview to The Sun ... in which she completely flips on R. Kelly and says she lied to Gayle back in March of 2019 while characterizing their relationship.

GK says it's not a bombshell to learn about the confession -- sounds like she didn't believe her at the time, even though Azriel was very forceful in denying any misconduct.

Check it out ... Gayle tells us what she wants for Azriel going forward, and it looks like Azriel's well on her way to getting to a good place as she reunites with her fam.

Interestingly, there's no mention of Joycelyn Savage here -- mostly 'cause there's not much to say. As you know, she still seems to very much be in R. Kelly's corner these days.

Halsey Who Screamed G-Eazy ... 'F*** That Guy!!!'

DON'T DISRESPECT ME
SplashNews.com

Halsey took a stand Saturday night during a pre-Super Bowl concert in Miami after a fan harassed her by repeatedly screaming out the name of her ex-BF.

Halsey was at BudX Miami performing her set when some dude in the crowd screamed G-Eazy's name over and over. Well, that set her off something fierce, as she did her own investigation of sorts to find the culprit.

The malcontent couldn't be spotted, so Halsey led the crowd in a rousing call to arms ... "F**k that guy!!!"  The fans were more than happy to oblige.

She issued a warning ... "If you say G-Eazy one more f**king time, I will kick you out this building. I will kick your f**king ass, test me. I will kick your ass out the f**king club. You’re not going to disrespect me like that at my own show."

Halsey later said, "don’t ever let someone make u feel crazy or unhinged cus ur a woman standing up for urself. Don’t tolerate disrespect in the name of being 'nice.' Love u."

Haley and G-Eazy dated in 2017 and were on-again, off-again until their final breakup in November 2018.

Dog The Bounty Hunter Kids Slam Proposal Mom Would Be Super Upset

Exclusive
TMZ Composite

Beth Chapman would be heartbroken and angry had she watched Dog The Bounty Hunter propose to her former maid of honor on TV ... at least according to their children.

Sources close to Dog and Beth's kids tell TMZ ... they've seen the clips of their father proposing to one of his late wife's friends, Moon Angell on "The Dr. Oz Show" ... and it's a total gut-punch!!!

Our sources say the Chapman kids are convinced Beth would NOT support the proposal ... and they feel Beth would be incensed if she saw it go down.

The reason -- we're told Beth and Moon had a chat before she passed and Moon allegedly told Beth she would take care of Dog after Beth died. Our sources say Beth told her kids about the convo, and no one was happy.

As we reported ... Dog and Moon are not actually engaged, despite the TV proposal, but he's grown close to Moon and she's helping him through the grieving process.

Sources close to the kids tell us they were also extremely hurt when Dog confessed Moon was the reason he decided against taking his own life ... we're told the kids felt their father should want to stay alive for his own kids' sake.

Getty

However, sources close to Dog tell us he has NO intention of replacing Beth with Moon. He's just trying to navigate life without his wife, and Moon helps with the day-to-day grind.

Our Dog sources add ... he definitely cares about his kids and wants to be there for them, and he's still got Beth's ashes in his bedroom.

To see more from Dog, watch Dr. Oz on February 3.

Rob Kardashian Not Dating 'L&HH' Star Tommie Lee

Exclusive
TMZ.com

Rob Kardashian hasn't moved on from Blac Chyna with Tommie Lee ... despite heavy spec from Wendy Williams.

Sources close to Rob tell TMZ ... recent reports claiming he's been dating the 'Love & Hip Hop' star are 100 percent untrue. We're told Rob and Tommie know each other, but they aren't close and don't even talk regularly.

Tommie's got her own show coming in the next few months ... so any shot of Rob being on that is gone too.

Williams slammed Rob on her show Thursday for allegedly dating Tommie, someone she says has a worse track record than his ex, Blac Chyna.

MAKE BETTER CHOICES
Wendy Williams Show

While it's true Tommie does have quite the rap sheet -- especially after multiple arrests and a child abuse case in the past 2 years -- we're told it's all irrelevant ... at least when it comes to Rob's dating life.

For the record ... Tommie's clearly not happy with Wendy's comments either and has sounded off on the talk show host in her Instagram stories.

As for Rob and Chyna ... they have their own issues to sort out. We broke the story ... he wants joint custody of their daughter, Dream, revoked for Chyna, but she's not having it.

Our sources say it's still very much a work in progress.

Nikki Bella Eyes Down HERE ... Check Out My Baby Bump!!!

Backgrid

Nikki Bella's not quite at the bulging baby bump stage, but she's still drawing attention to the bun in her oven ... her first!!!

Check out this pic of the WWE superstar doing the classic bump cradle during a walk Wednesday afternoon in Los Angeles. She was on her way to visit a friend, and it ain't hard to figure out what they'll be discussing.

It's pretty crazy ... Nikki and her twin, Brie Bella, are both pregnant, and their due dates are only a week and a half apart. That's some serious womb symmetry!!!

As we reported ... Nikki got engaged back in November to her former "Dancing With The Stars" partner, Artem Chigvintsev, and she says they weren't even trying to get pregnant.

Brie says she was also shocked by her second pregnancy with husband -- and fellow WWE superstar -- Daniel Bryan after resigning herself to being a mother of one.

No word on sex or baby names yet. We sense a synchronized gender reveal in the near future. Congrats!!!

Dog the Bounty Hunter Proposes to Beth's Friend on 'Dr. Oz' ... But NO Engagement

Exclusive Details
TMZ Composite

Dog the Bounty Hunter -- who's been reeling after the death of his wife -- has a new woman he wants to marry, or at least he did for a moment while he was on 'Dr. Oz.'

The other shock is the alleged bride-to-be is one of Beth Chapman's friends ... Moon Angell. Dog's been rumored to be dating her for a few weeks, pissing off his daughters, who have claimed he's lying about the relationship. It's caused a rift in the Chapman family.

Regardless, Dog and Moon -- who was once Beth's assistant along with her BFF -- appeared on "The Dr. Oz Show" together ... and Dog shocked everyone by proposing to her.

Sources connected to the show tell TMZ ... he also told Moon he loved her and revealed he was talking to God in the bathroom during a break, and God told him he should propose.

However, sources close to the family tell us ... the TV proposal, recorded last week, was NOT legit -- he was overly emotional and got caught up in the moment. We're told he did not give her a ring during the taping, and they are not engaged.

It certainly didn't play out that way on the 'Dr. Oz' set though. People involved in the production tell us everyone in the studio thought Dog meant it. You can see the full interview and judge for yourself Monday on Dr. Oz's show.

Getty

Our sources say he's grown close to Moon -- who was maid of honor at his and Beth's wedding -- because she's helped him through the grieving process, which she's going through too.

However, there is no wedding or even engagement plans for them as of now.
