Martin Shkreli Banned From Twitter ... Over Obsession With Lauren Duca


Lauren Duca got Martin Shkreli suspended Sunday from Twitter after a simple invite to Trump's inauguration turned into creepy online harassment.

Duca -- a writer for Teen Vogue -- reached out to Twitter's CEO and founder Jack Dorsey after Shkreli initially offered Lauren a +1 to the inauguration last week, which quickly escalated into stalking territory when she shot him down.

Afterward, Shkreli turned his Twitter page into a shrine for Lauren ... insinuating they were a couple, despite her frequent rejections.

Now, it looks like Martin's trolling has gotten him booted from the Twitter-verse.

She brings the point home in our video ... she and Martin will never be a thing, or won't even talk, unless he changes his tune.

'Bachelor In Paradise' Star Kareem's Got 'Bachelor' All Wrong ... Love Is Love Is Love, Wherever


Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was off the mark in his scathing critique of "The Bachelor," because love blossoms the same way on TV as it does in real life ... so says a contestant.

We got "Bachelor in Paradise" star Jared Haibon -- who's been on 2 seasons of "BIP" and 1 season of "The Bachelorette" -- and he says the idea that people aren't their true selves on the reality shows mirrors what happens with everyone on a date ... they put on a good but sometimes false face.

Jared's got a point ... but it seems like Kareem was getting at something a lot deeper than being phony for the cameras. Kareem rails on the shows, saying it portrays "cartoonish physical and mental restrictions" on relationships. He also comes close to calling the shows racist, saying, "If you're black ... you're usually kept around as a courtesy for a few weeks before being ejected."

Advantage, Kareem.

Britney Spears Tight with Ex-Fiance's BFF

Britney Spears had an interesting liaison Friday night ... playing grabsees with ex-fiance Jason Trawick's best buddy.

Britney was at XS nightclub in Vegas when she and Cade Hudson got cozy in the DJ booth and on the dance floor. She bear-hugged him and generally looked pretty intimate.

The "bro code" clearly has a statute of limitations ... or at least it should.

'Tough Love' Star -- Arrested for Louboutin Heist

VH1 reality star Taylor Royce -- aka Miss Gold Digger from "Tough Love" -- was arrested this morning for allegedly jacking $600 worth of makeup ... and one very expensive pair of Louboutin boots.

We're told cops busted Royce with the stolen goods at her friend's house in Arizona ... the same friend who called the cops on her in the first place.

The friend in question -- a girl named Carolyn Clare -- tells us, it all started with a friendly sleepover gone wrong ... everything started out fine ... but after the two woke up the next morning, Clare noticed her expensive boots and makeup collection had gone missing.

We're told Royce -- real name Kelly Jean Stasilli -- denied stealing anything ... but her pal called the cops anyway.

According to law enforcement, Royce is still in custody.
