BTW ... Kendall and Bella are both officially single.

Art Basel is cool and all ... but these two are the real works of art.

Tyler Perry Gets Shout-Out from Hospital 'Hostage' ... I Love You, Thanks For Saving Me!!!

Exclusive
TMZ.com

Tyler Perry is getting showered with love from the sick man he basically rescued from a Mexican hospital -- and the guy says he'd STILL be trapped if not for Tyler.

Stephen Johnson says Tyler is his real-life superhero for covering his $14,000 hospital bill and paying to fly him home to Atlanta. Remember, Stephen fell ill while on vacay ... and says the hospital was holding him until he paid for his treatment in full.

MY HERO
TMZ.com

Stephen tells us he just got out of another hospital in Georgia, and he's finally on the mend after being diagnosed with pancreatitis, diabetes and a kidney infection while in Mexico -- and he has a special message for Tyler.

It's pretty wild ... Stephen says the hospital staff in Mexico was doing the bare minimum to keep him alive before his story went viral, and caught the attention of the media and Tyler.

He's still shocked Tyler would do so much to help a stranger, and he's convinced there's no one as kind.

Racist Rant American Tourist Arrested in Thailand ... Sickening Video

THAILAND TIRADE
NEWSFLARE

An unhinged American tourist in Thailand went on a disgusting and disturbing tirade in front of a crowd of onlookers ... and got hauled away in handcuffs.

This footage of Daniel Franckowiak's rant is pretty appalling -- he starts by hurling threats at the person filming, saying ... "I kill people, I rape children, I kill f****ts. I'm real! I'll f***ing kill and rape you too!"

He then follows up his homophobic slur with a racist one, calling a woman a "coward c***k bitch."

Franckowiak continues to threaten people in front of a restaurant in Chiang Mai, and tells one man his skin looks like "the ass of a f***ing cow" before the authorities show up to arrest him. His response ... "put me on YouTube and make me famous."

The embarrassing U.S. tourist reportedly hails from Bismark, North Dakota and was busted for criminal damage -- he allegedly broke a window at the restaurant.

Franckowiak was reportedly released from police custody, but is scheduled to appear in court next month, and apparently bragged online about getting sprung from jail 3 times the past several weeks in "corrupt Thailand."

Paige's husband, Austin Vanderford, is taking on Grachik Bozinyan at Bellator 234 on Friday in Tel Aviv ... and they touched down late last week to get all settled in.

They hit up the Dead Sea along with seeing the sites in Tel Aviv -- good times all around.

As for Vandeford, he's 8-0 as a pro fighter and has been wrecking people -- in fact, none of his last 5 fights have made it past the 2nd round.

As for Paige, the 25-year-old recently told TMZ Sports she's dying to get back in the Octagon and fight again ASAP but so far, there's nothing in the works.

GIVE ME A FIGHT!!!

Paige is 8-4 as a pro -- with signature wins over fighters like Bec Rawlings, Felice Herrig and Rachael Ostovich.

Todd & Julie Chrisley Denied Cayman Islands Trip ... Amid Tax Case

Exclusive
TMZ/Getty Composite

3:14 PM PT -- A judge just got back to Todd and Julie Chrisley about their request to go to the Cayman Islands for Thanksgiving, and he basically said no dice.

The court order entered says it's standard procedure for defendants in a case like this to surrender their passports ... and that travel is outside the U.S. is strictly prohibited except for extraordinary circumstances. The judge notes that wanting to get away for the holiday simply doesn't meet that standard, so they're not going anywhere outside our borders.

Rats ... is probably what the Chrisleys are thinking.

Todd and Julie Chrisley wanna get the hell outta Dodge for Thanksgiving and spend it in the Cayman Islands ... but first, they need permission.

According to new legal docs obtained by TMZ ... the Chrisleys are asking the judge in their federal tax evasion case for permission to temporarily obtain their passports so they can travel to the Cayman Islands for about a week during Thanksgiving.

The Chrisleys say they'll fly commercial and stay at a resort condo ... where they say they wanna spend time with their children and grandchild to celebrate the holiday.

As we've reported ... as part of the conditions in their bond release, the Chrisleys are restricted to travel in Georgia and Tennessee. They can also travel to Cali to tape their reality show, but they have to notify their probation officers first.

The Chrisleys say they'll provide a full itinerary of their travel to their probation officer and immediately surrender the passports once they return from their vacay. For what it's worth ... the Chrisleys say the U.S. Attorney's Office does not object to their request ... an indication the travel request has a good chance of getting the judge's approval seal.

The judge, however, has yet to rule on the request.

Breaking News
EXTREME FRISBEE

Wanna see the coolest Frisbee trick ever?!?!

Wakeboarding star Steel Lafferty threw up a disc about a hundred feet in the air ... got it to come back to him -- and caught it after doing a backflip!!!

The insane throw took place down in Nicaragua ... where Lafferty is vacationing with skateboarding legend Ryan Sheckler and some other buds.

And, fortunately for all of us, one of them was smart enough to grab the camera when Lafferty went down to the beach with a Frisbee.

The 27-year-old's toss was insane -- seriously, watch the thing boomerang -- but his backflip before the catch really topped it off!!

"No matter where I am, You all know I have to do something WILD !" Lafferty said of the throw.

Of course, the 5'7", 160-pound badass is no stranger to wild stunts ... he kills it on the water -- and even earned Wakeboarder Of The Year honors back in 2017.

Dennis and his grad student hottie, Laura Savoie, are enjoying an island getaway on Oahu ... and Thursday afternoon they did what any fit tourist does in Waikiki, rented some boards and paddled out into the Pacific.

The 65-years-young actor ditched his shirt as he carved up some waves, showing off his super cut bod. Laura, a total dime at 26, kept it sexy in a tiny white bikini.

After feeling the burn of a stand-up paddle board workout, Dennis and Laura headed back to land for a romantic stroll.

Fun on the water is kinda Dennis and Laura's thing ... as we reported back in August, the couple vacationed in Italy and went cruising around Lake Como.

Gotta hand it to Dennis ... dude knows how to show a girl a good time.

Demi Lovato Visits the Holy Land ... Baptized Like Jesus

Demi Lovato's road to wellness just became a truly spiritual journey for her, 'cause she made a pilgrimage to God's land ... and got cleansed in the same waters as Christ.

The singer posted some incredible photos Tuesday of a recent trip she took to Israel, one of which shows her getting baptized in the Jordan River -- where JC himself was famously dunked by John the Baptist. It clearly meant a lot to Demi too.

She captioned her set, "I am an American singer. I was raised Christian and have Jewish ancestors. When I was offered an amazing opportunity to visit the places I’d read about in the Bible growing up, I said yes."

Demi went on to say that she was overcome with a sense of spirituality and a connection to God by visiting the Holy Land -- something she says she's been missing in her life.

As for the baptism, Demi writes that she's never felt "more renewed." She went on to say, "This trip has been so important for my well-being, my heart, and my soul. I’m grateful for the memories made and the opportunity to be able to fill the God-sized hole in my heart. Thank you for having me, Israel."

As you know, Demi has been on a hiatus from music since her near-fatal overdose in L.A. She's gone to rehab to get better, and even celebrated a year of sobriety in July.

Looks like this might've pushed her over the mountaintop in a different way, though. Good for her.

Serena Williams Cakes By the Ocean!!! ... In New Swimsuit Shot

Breaking News

Behold ... Serena Williams' butt in all its glory!!

Just a few weeks after taking an L in the grand slam final at the U.S. Open, Serena is chillaxing on a beach somewhere ... arms up, cakes out. It's good stuff.

Serena is 37-years-old and continuing to impress in all facets of her life. She's still a beast on the court. Killing it in business. And, her body ... good god.

Despite all the great things, there are still a bunch of racist jerks looking to cause drama in Serena's life, including some moronic Romanian TV host who crawled out of the gutter to describe Williams as a "monkey" during a recent broadcast.

The actual quotes 49-year-old Radu Bancui uttered on TV are so offensive and disgusting, we're not going to publish them here ... but it's been reported he's been fined by the body that oversees content on Romanian television.

Quite frankly, the fine isn't big enough.

Seems Williams has to deal with this kind of crap all the time from various racist idiots all over the world -- including in her home country.

Both Serena and Venus have talked openly about being called the N-word at the 2001 BNP Paribas Open tournament in Indian Wells, California.

But, today, Serena's tuning it all out and basking in her success ... and we couldn't be happier about it.

Demi Lovato This is Me, 'Unashamed' ... Shares Unedited 'Cellulit' Bikini Pic

Demi Lovato is so over feeling bad about her body, and even more so -- she's done editing her photos to please others and adhere to THEIR idea of beautiful.

And that, indeed, is "celluLIT."

Demi shared this unedited bikini photo of herself late Thursday -- cellulite and all -- because as she puts it ... "I want this new chapter in my life to be about being authentic to who I am rather than trying to meet someone else’s standards."

Lovato adds ... "So here’s me, unashamed, unafraid and proud to own a body that has fought through so much and will continue to amaze me when I hopefully give birth one day."

The singer/actress goes on to explain how she's been feeling great getting back to projects while not stressing about strenuous workouts or miserable diets.

She says ... "here's me, RAW, REAL! And I love me. And you should love you too!"

The inspiring pic caught the eye of one interesting admirer. Mike Johnson, a contestant on the last season of "The Bachelorette," dropped a very flirty reply to Demi ... saying, "Look at me like that again." Demi saw it and replied with a kissy face emoji. Hmmm ...

Even better, Demi's post also revealed that she's back in the studio working on new music -- an anthem!

Backgrid

As we've reported ... Lovato also recently celebrated 1 year of sobriety with a group of friends following her near-fatal overdose last summer.

Aaron Paul Breaking The Bank ... My 40th Birthday Bash!!!

Aaron Paul went all out celebrating 40 years of life ... living it up for two weeks at a posh beachside resort in the Dominican Republic with his wife and Bryan Cranston!!!

The "Breaking Bad" star rang in the big 4-0 in the DR ... and he spared no expense, staying in a suite at The Ani Resort that goes for $25,000 a night. Aaron shacked up for 12 nights, dropping $300k just for his lodging!!!

Aaron was rolling deep ... he had his better half with him, plus his family and close friends, including Bryan. We're told the "Breaking Bad" costars spent their time sipping their new Mezcal that just launched, Dos Hombres.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

Rum's usually what you think of when you picture a boozy drink on a Caribbean beach ... but when you've got your own liquor brand, you play by your own rules!!!

Aaron and co. had a rocking time ... soaking in all the resort and island have to offer ... infinity pools, perfect weather, soft sands, amazing food, crystal-clear seas ... the whole shebang.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

Blowout birthday parties are kinda Aaron's thing ... when his wife turned 30 back in 2016, Aaron rented out a massive private villa in Thailand just for the 2 of them.

Gotta love that "Breaking Bad" bank!!!

Pete Davidson Back in Romance Mode ... Hand in Hand with New GF in Italy!!!

Backgrid

Pete Davidson's putting dating rumors to rest and making it crystal clear he IS definitely dating Margaret Qualley -- romantic strolls in Italy will do that.

Pete and Margaret were holding hands Monday while they walked through Venice, and they couldn't look happier. It's Pete in full-blown couple mode again, and they look pretty comfortable around each other. Margaret was chill in a cream tank dress, while Pete repped Biggie Smalls.

As we reported ... rumors had been flying that Pete and Margaret -- who's Andie MacDowell's daughter, btw -- were an item for a while now. They hadn't been seen this close before, but the Venice Film Fesitval has been their coming out. They were together at the screening of her new flick, "Seberg."

They didn't walk the arrival line together but he did sit behind her inside the screening.

Gotta hand it to Pete ... he bounces back just fine from big break-ups.

Jennifer Lopez ABS-olutely Belle!!! ... Spotted in St. Tropez

Mega

Three words to describe Jennifer Lopez on this Labor Day holiday ... DROP. DEAD. GORGEOUS.

The singer made one helluva an arrival on Nikki Beach in St. Tropez. She's there with her man Alex Rodriguez, who BTW should forever be known as the man who scored the biggest come-up in the history of mankind after locking down the Bronx goddess.

Mega

Anyway ... the couple's there to celebrate Magic Johnson's 60th birthday bash. The who's-who of crowds is there ... from Magic's family to Samuel L. Jackson and Cedric the Entertainer to Anthony Anderson and Chris Tucker.

Magic's birthday was actually on August 14. At that point, Magic had already been a couple of weeks into his million-bucks-per-week vacation. Unclear why he pushed his bday bash until now ... but when you're ballin' like Magic, no excuse is needed.

AIN'T NO PARTY LIKE A MAGIC PARTY

And, just like he did with Showtime ... Magic held court at his shindig, grabbing the mic and leading the way. The all-white themed party crowded around the pool and a great time was had by all.

No word yet if Cedric's calmed down after being in awe of Magic's super-yacht. One thing's for sure ... J Lo's million-dollar look's gonna have us all in awe for a good minute.

Cedric The Entertainer Dayyum, Magic Johnson ... Your Yacht's Like the Love Boat!!!

CRUISIN'

Cedric The Entertainer damn near lost his mind when he feasted his eyes on Magic Johnson's floating mansion.

The comedian was cruising on a small launch boat in St. Tropez ... and as he got closer and closer to the Hall of Famer's super-yacht you can hear Cedric get giddy. Now that's one helluva first impression. The yacht -- called the Aquila -- is a 281-foot ship that costs nearly a MILLION BUCKS per week to rent.

8/4/19
YACHT LIFE

Magic and his wife, Cookie, kicked off their annual yacht vacay in early August. LL Cool J, Rodney and Holly Robinson Peete and others were some of the early invitees. Some of his past rotating group of super famous and wealthy friends have included Samuel L. Jackson and Steve Harvey.

As we've told you ... Magic's vacations usually last around 6 weeks. That makes for one baller $6 million vacation. The boat itself's practically a hotel ... featuring a dining room area, movie theater, hot tub and massive outdoor deck. The ship can host 12 guests with a crew of 28.

Healthy living.

Models Cat Kennedy & Sarah Curr Have Each Other's Backs ... Ass Really Good Friends Should!!!

Now, here's a beach oil spill Leo DiCaprio can get on board with ... courtesy of models Cat Kennedy and Sarah Curr.

The two hotties got super handsy while lathering each other up with baby oil for a beach sesh in Santa Monica. Unclear why they ditched the sunscreen (maybe they took care of that before getting on the hot sand) but ... do you really care???

Guessing your eyes will be laser-focused on their teensy-weensy bikinis barely hanging on to their assets. Check out the pics ... they also held hands and enjoyed a little splash in the ocean. Nothing new for Cat, whom we spotted on the same beach not long ago.

Summer, baby!!!
