Offset Hey Cardi, I'll Be Home for XMAS ... If You Let Me

12/13/2018 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Cardi B and Offset might officially be on the outs, but Daddy wants to come home for Christmas. 

Sources close to the couple tell us ... Offset wants to spend the holidays with Cardi and their little girl -- specifically, Xmas Eve and day as well as a few days leading up to that. We're told Offset knows how important spending Kulture's first Christmas with his daughter will be, and wants to be there. 

Our sources also say Offset won't be coming over empty-handed. As a notoriously generous gift giver, we're told he'll have lots of presents for his new baby ... and, of course, some things for Cardi as well (assuming she accepts them, and we're guessing she will).

Sources close to Cardi tell us the "Bodak Yellow" rapper hasn't yet made up her mind if she'll allow Offset to celebrate the holidays with her as a family ... and the plans haven't been discussed.

We're told Offset plans on seeing his other kids too -- he's got 3 others from previous relationships. In other words, Papa will be on the move. 

As we've already told you ... Offset wants Cardi back, plain and simple. He feels like his haters are standing in his way ... but he's determined to win back her heart. That feeling might be mutual. We're told Cardi still feels love for him, despite her publicly saying otherwise

No word on whether they'll rekindle their relationship and stave off a divorce, but our sources say that people close to both of them think there's a reasonable shot they can work it out. 

There's no better time for some magic like that than the holidays. Ya listening, Santa?

12/13/2018 7:14 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

50 Cent has no problem with the pace Nicki Minaj and her new boyfriend seem to be moving at in their relationship ... because they're picking up right where they left off.

We got Fif in Bev Hills Wednesday night where, at first, we asked if he or Starz were planning anything for the family of the "Power" crew member who was tragically killed in a freak accident this week on set. Understandably, he's not ready to talk about it.

Our camera guy then pivots to the 'Queen' rapper, and asks if he thinks it's too soon for her to be talking babies and marriage with her new man/old flameKenneth Petty -- a convicted sex offender

Check out his answer ... sounds like history trumps all when it comes to this kind of stuff, according to him anyway.

Jennifer Lopez Pretty (Long Ass Dress) in Pink ... For New Movie Premiere

12/13/2018 7:00 AM PST

Jennifer Lopez was front and center for the world premiere of her new movie ... and, eventually, the rest of her dress caught up with her.

J Lo showed out in an extravagant pink tulle high-low gown Wednesday night in NYC for the debut of her flick, "Second Act." As you can tell, the outfit was over-the-top -- with a loooong trail of fabric she had to be mindful of as she posed for pics.

That said, would you expect anything less from Jenny? She's kinda famous for moments like this ... just sayin'. And hey, the fashion choice paid off ... folks were wowed.

As much room as Jen had out on the red carpet of the Regal Union Square Theatre to strut her stuff, she looked a bit cramped in the car with A-Rod on the way over ... where the ruffles from the dress looked like a whole other person occupying the seat next to her. 

Sometimes ya gotta sit tight to go out in style, we suppose.

Danielle Bregoli Engineers Secret Wedding Proposal ... See, I'm Not Always Bhad

12/13/2018 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Danielle Bregoli is a rough-acting teen with a penchant for feuding and trash-talking, so imagine our surprise when we got this video where she plays cupid.

Bhad Bhabie is Down Under for a few concerts and helped a fan at one of her shows propose to his GF.  

The sweet moment went down at her sold-out concert Wednesday at the 170 Russell venue in Melbourne. We're told it had been planned for some time ... the fan had reached out to Bhad Bhabie's camp and she greenlit the plan.

Bhabie brought them both onstage after a song. The GF was shocked when her guy got down on bended knee and popped the question.

It appears someone made it rain right in the middle of his proposal.

BTW ... she said yes. 

Camille Kostek Defends Gronk's Missed Tackle Give Him Another Chance!!

12/12/2018 11:21 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Rob Gronkowski missed the game-saving tackle in the Dolphins game on Sunday ... but his S.I. model GF tells TMZ Sports it was NOT a mistake havin' him on the field.

We got Camille Kostek out at the Sports Illustrated Sportsperson of the Year ceremony at The Beverly Hilton in L.A. ... when she explained why Bill Belichick should give Gronk more burn on defense.

"I don't play football, I don't make the rules -- I support whatever he does. So if he needs to be put at defense again, I say, 'Go for it, baby!!'"

Of course, Patriots fans were pissed ... and confused about why Gronk -- a 6'7" tight end -- was on defense in the first place for Kenyan Drake's miracle sprint.

But, Camille says her BF ain't one-dimensional -- and she knows her man will get it done if he's in the same spot again in the future.

"I mean, look what he does as a tight end. He doesn't just catch the ball and get in the end zone. He's blocking, he does it all. So, yeah, I think I can see him doing it again!"

As for the couple's future ... we had to ask if wedding bells are coming down the pipe ... and while Camille says not right now ... she definitely didn't say no to the idea down the road!!

Nicki Minaj Talkin' Wedding Bells & Babies ... With New Boyfriend

12/12/2018 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Nicki Minaj's relationship with her new boyfriend is way more serious than we thought -- 'cause we now know she's considering the married and mom life with him.

Sources close to the "Queen" MC tell us Nicki and Kenneth Petty have already had the marriage and baby talk -- this after only a couple months of dating. We're told Nicki is serious about the prospect of marrying Kenneth and having his kids ... because she believes he's that good a man.

As for that whole convicted sex offender thing -- among other crimes -- we're told Nicki couldn't care less.

She certainly isn't shy about showing off her new boo either -- Nicki posted a video of them working out together in the gym. 

As we reported ... Nicki feels Kenneth has changed for the better since he was young -- when he was convicted of first-degree attempted rape as a 16-year-old. He's an old flame from back then, and we're told she's as happy as ever now that they've reconnected all these years later.

Nicki seems to believe Kenneth was falsely convicted ... he was dating the victim at the time and claims the girl's mother had it in for him and made false allegations.

Pete Davidson Back in the Saddle ... Date Night with Mystery Woman

12/11/2018 8:42 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Put him in, coach -- Pete Davidson's back playing the field after the Ariana Grande breakup, and we gotta say ... dude knows how to class it up for date night.

The 'SNL' vet was spotted having dinner 1-on-1 Monday night at Carbone in NYC, with a lovely lady sitting across from him. You can see in the pic, it was full wine and dine mode.

This is one of the first times we've seen Pete out on the town with a new girl since he and Ariana split in October and called off their engagement. We're told he has been casually dating. It's also certainly a nice change of pace considering how rocky things have been for him since the breakup, privately and publicly.

Just last week, he announced Internet trolls were encouraging him to kill himself ... but vowed he'd never do any such thing. Way to bounce back, Pete.

As they say ... thank u, next. 

Nicki Minaj Troubled New BF is Blast From Her Romantic Past

12/11/2018 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Nicki Minaj has a long history with her new boyfriend, because she first fell for him when she was a teenager -- and she feels he's changed since his checkered past. 

Sources close to Nicki tell TMZ ... her first relationship with Kenneth Petty happened when she was a 16-year-old living in Queens, and she calls him one of her first loves. As they say, what's old is new again ... she's been showing him off in pics from a romantic getaway for her 36th birthday.  

We're told Nicki understands Kenneth has a troubled past -- he's a registered sex offender convicted of attempted rape -- but she's confident he's matured since his time in NY state prison in the late 1990s. Nicki believes in second chances and has faith he'll be good to her.

As we reported ... Petty was convicted of first-degree attempted rape in April 1995, when he and his victim were both 16. Sources close to Nicki say the full context of the crime is Kenneth was dating the victim -- and her mother filed the charges because she didn't approve of him. 

Our sources say Nicki and Kenneth still have great chemistry, despite all the years between their relationships. We're told she was very stressed out before they got back together, but she's much happier since rekindling their romance.

We're told Kenneth's been treating her like a queen, and even planned the birthday trip. We're told Nicki's friends haven't seen her this happy with anyone in years.

Kendall Jenner Posts Sappy Love Letter ... From Ben Simmons?!

12/11/2018 7:11 AM PST
Breaking News

Is Ben Simmons secretly the sweetest, sappiest boyfriend ever???

Maybe ... 'cause Kendall Jenner posted a SUPER romantic, handwritten love letter on social media Monday (but blacked out the name of the sender) ... and signs point to the 76ers point guard. 

The letter begins, "Dear Kendall, We may be miles apart but my love for you grows stronger by the minute. My innermost feeling is of pure love for you."

"I will love you until death separates us. Right now this separation is killing me, but in my heart I know that nothing would come close to separating us."

It continues, "We are united into one forever, body and soul and I want you to know that I love you from the deepest part of my heart."

It's signed with, "Love," but Kendall blocked out the author ... which begs the question -- IS IT REALLY FROM BEN?!?!

Seems it could be ... the two have gotten super serious the last few weeks, ice skating, grabbing bites to eat and hanging out after Sixers games.

Plus ... Philly WAS just on a road trip in Toronto and then Detroit ...

So, is Simmons the author?? Here's a look at his handwriting -- you be the judge. 

Offset I Want Cardi Back ... Haters Are Messing it Up

12/10/2018 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Offset is madly in love with Cardi B and plans to pull out all the stops to get her back, but he thinks there's a major hurdle in his way -- the legion of haters trying to take him down.

Sources close to the couple tell TMZ, Offset was desperately trying to save his marriage before Cardi made the announcement they were done. Even she acknowledged they'd been working on it "for a hot minute now."

We're told after the text messages about Cuban Doll surfaced, Offset tried to prove to his wife nothing came of the text exchange ... and he wasn't messing around with anyone. 

Our sources say Offset feels his greatest challenge now is to regain his wife's trust -- which feels impossible to him because haters keep filling Cardi's social media posts with negativity about him.

We're told Cardi reads blogs and comments, and Offset feels like he's up against all of that. 

Sources tell us Offset's made one thing clear to friends -- he only loves Cardi and his daughter -- and will take every chance he can to save his family. Offset even posted a desperate tweet on Sunday saying he missed Cardi.

As for Cardi ... she seems pretty content living the single life. Seems.  

Jason Sudeikis Call Him Steph Curry at Knott's ... Sinks Lots O' Treys

12/10/2018 8:04 AM PST

Jason Sudeikis still looks like he's starring in "We're the Millers," and by that we mean Reggie Miller ... because his hoops shot looks NBA-ready ... in theme parks, anyway.

The actor was hanging out with Olivia Wilde and their kids over the weekend at Knott's Berry Farm in SoCal, where Jason showed out for a basketball carnival booth game. It was pretty much a 3-point contest ... and Jason crushed it.

He misses a few here and there from the corner but really gets into a groove at the top of the key ... where he gets bucket after bucket. Unclear what Jason and co. ended up winning, but ya gotta imagine it was something decent.

Like one of those giant, slightly terrifying, teddy bears.

Nicki Minaj Getting Closer with New BF ... A Convicted Sex Offender

12/10/2018 10:04 AM PST

2:30 PM PST -- Nicki just admitted to the allegations, writing, "He was 15, she was 16 ... in a relationship. But go awf, internet. y'all can't run my life. Y'all can't even run y'all own life. Thank you boo."Nicki Minaj's new boo is a registered sex offender with a disturbing rap sheet that includes convictions for manslaughter and attempted rape ... TMZ has learned. 

Kenneth Petty is the 40-year-old she's been hanging with, and posting pics with on Instagram. Court records, obtained by TMZ, show he was convicted of first-degree attempted rape in April 1995. He was 16 at the time, and so was his victim.

Prosecutors said he used a sharp object when he tried to force the girl to have sexual intercourse. Petty served almost 4 years in NY state prison for the crime. 

And, get this ... years after getting out of the pen, Petty was convicted of first-degree manslaughter, and served another 7 years for shooting a man. He was released in 2013. 

She acknowledged their hometown connection by quoting Adele's "Hello" in the caption of their latest pic -- "Did you ever make it out of that town where nothing ever happens? ... it's no secret ... that the both of us ... are running out of time."

They were reportedly friends from Queens.

Katie Cassidy announced she got hitched to her fiance with a joyous shot of her kissing her groom in all white -- but right before that ... she was steeped in VERY serious thought.

The CW's "Arrow" star posted a sweet photo Sunday of her locking lips with now-hubby, Matthew Rodgers, to whom she got engaged last summer. She captioned her pic with, "I can't help falling in love with you... YES! It's official! #MrsRodgers I love you my husband."

I can’t help falling in love with you... YES! It’s official! #MrsRodgers I love you my husband.

A post shared by Katie Cassidy (@katiecassidy) on

As picturesque as this scene is here, there appeared to be some last-minute prep right before Katie walked down the aisle. Namely, it was just making sure her dress was all set and her bouquet was in order ... which her bridesmaids had under control.

Unclear who walked Katie down the aisle -- seeing how her father, David Cassidy, died a year ago -- but there was a gentleman nearby to possibly carry out the honors. 

Of course, Katie made it to the altar. From a wide view, the location for her wedding was even more gorgeous than what she revealed on Instagram. The newly married pair tied the knot right on the shore of a beach in Sunset Key, FL.

Sailboats as a backdrop come as an added bonus on the island.

Congrats to the happy couple!
