Cory Booker on Rosario Dawson My Boo's First Lady Material ... And Then Some!!!

3/22/2019 11:59 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Cory Booker says the future is very, VERY bright for him and Rosario Dawson ... and it'll be downright blinding if she joins him in The White House.

We got the Jersey Senator and presidential hopeful leaving NBC in NYC Friday, and when we ask him if his girlfriend will join him at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave in D.C. if he's elected Prez -- even if they're unmarried -- Cory goes into all-out dote mode.

It's hard to keep up with all the adjectives Booker drops to lovingly describe Dawson, but the bottom line -- he believes she'd be an amazing First Lady ... and the first of her kind.

We broke the story ... Rosario confirmed last week she and Cory are dating and in love, gushing about her man just as much as he does her. She didn't say much about becoming First Lady, but clearly ... the Senator can talk enough for the both of them about that.

BTW -- Booker and our camera guy apparently go way back ... and he's got his vote already.

Drake's Baby Mama IG Vid with Drizzy Look-Alike ... Clout-Standing Move!!!

3/20/2019 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Drake and his baby mama get along great and co-parent like champs, but they're not on romantic dinner date terms ... despite a video she posted that made it seem like they are.

Sources close to the situation tell TMZ ... Sophie Brussaux has been hanging out with a Drizzy doppelganger lately, and it was no accident she shared a quick shot of the guy on social media last week ... just hours after she attended Drake's Paris concert.

We're told those around Sophie believe it was a calculated move to gain some clout by making it seem like she and Drake break bread together. It worked too -- several media outlets reported Drake had dinner with Sophie that night.

Our sources say that's definitely not the case, and confirm the dude in the vid is just a bearded, light-skinned look-alike.

It's interesting, because as we reported ... Drake rolled out the red carpet for Sophie in Paris by granting her an all-access VIP pass, and they've had a positive relationship for their son, Adonis.

Seems unnecessary for her to pretend it's more than that. Then again ... gotta get them likes!!!

'Bachelor' Alum Lauren B. Flaunts Ripped Bod ... Maui Vacay with BF Chris Lane!!!

3/19/2019 10:53 AM PDT

'Bachelor' alum Lauren Bushnell and her country star BF are putting their bods on display and, perhaps, sending a message to their fans: skip Taco Tuesday, get your ass ready for summer!

Lauren B. and Chris Lane are soaking up some rays while on vacay in Maui. They played a little corn hole and looked every bit the perfectly fit couple. She wore the hell out of a navy blue bikini ... and laughed it up with the "Take Back Home Girl" singer, who kept it cool with board shorts, shades and a cap. 

BTW ... Chris most definitely looks familiar to 'Bachelor' fans. He performed his hit song, "For Her," on Nick Viall's season. 

Lauren, of course, was the winner on Ben Higgins' season but they split back in May 2017. A little over a year later, she started dating Chris, whose previous GF was Lauren Barr ... another 'Bachelor' hopeful from Ben's season. Yeah, Chris has a type.

He and Lauren started dating last November and it looks like they're still going strong.

Just like their bods.

Travis Scott Record-Breaking Performance ... $1.7 Million Los Angeles Tour Stop

3/19/2019 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

If Travis Scott's gonna have to wait to repair his relationship with Kylie Jenner because they're both too busy ... at least he's making a ton of money in the process.

We're told Travis has joined some elite company after his February 8 Astroworld concert at The Forum sold out and grossed a whopping $1.7 million. Yup, nearly $2 million for ONE SHOW. We're told he sold more than 16,300 tickets.

This is huge for Travis because the sellout means Travis is only one of a few artists to have repeat sellouts at The Forum in a 12-month period. He also sold out shows on December 19 and 20.

To put this feat in perspective ... Travis now joins legends like Garth Brooks, Juan Gabriel, The Grateful Dead, Janet Jackson, Lady Gaga, Sting and Michael Jackson to accomplish repeat sellouts since 1990. And, get this ... the $1.7M is the highest-grossing, single-night engagement of the Astroworld tour. #Goosebumps 

But, while the rapper continues stockpiling career accolades, it's been rocky waters at home.

As we first reported ... Travis and Kylie haven't had a chance to fully repair their relationship after she accused him of cheating, largely in part to each building their own empires.

For what it's worth ... Travis has just 10 more dates left on his tour.

Pete Davidson & Kate Beckinsale Kickstart My Heart ... & Show Me Your Wild Side

3/19/2019 6:31 AM PDT

Pete Davidson and Kate Beckinsale seem to be in the midst of a full-blown rock 'n' roll romance -- so why not crash a Motley Crue party while you're at it?

The 'SNL' star was spotted leaving an MC gig Monday night on the Sunset Strip at the Whiskey a Go Go, where Tommy Lee and co. were celebrating the premiere of their biopic, "The Dirt." He was holding Kate's hand and leading the way again ... that's kinda their signature look together lately. 

Considering what's new with Motley Crue and who's involved, it's no wonder Pete and Kate were there. His buddy, Machine Gun Kelly, stars as Tommy in a new Netflix movie about the band called The Dirt. The movie premiere took place before their shindig.

It must've been a feel-good time, 'cause Pete and Kate were in the mood to make out right afterward. They sure didn't hesitate once they were in their car.

Things appear to be going swell for these two since getting together last month, and there's no sign of them slowing down as of yet. Too fast for love? Eh, who's to say?

Nicki Minaj I'm Not a Married Woman ... Despite Calling Boyfriend 'Husband'

3/19/2019 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Nicki Minaj did not secretly walk down the aisle with bad boy boyfriend Kenneth Petty, despite recently referring to him as her "husband."

As you know ... the rumors started kicking into overdrive after Nicki called her new man her "husband" on the latest episode of "Queen Radio." 

Sources close to Nicki tell TMZ ... she's very much in love with Kenneth, but any reports saying they're married are false ... despite what she said. 

We broke the story ... the superstar rapper is considering getting hitched to Kenneth -- and they are talking marriage after just a few months of dating -- but we're told they haven't jumped the broom.

As for Kenneth's checkered history with the law, which includes convictions for first-degree attempted rape and manslaughter, we're told Nicki doesn't care about his troubled past because he treats her great ... and she's tired of people bashing him. 

Bottom line ... Nicki calling Kenneth her hubby is kinda like Travis Scott calling Kylie Jenner his "wife" ... although that seems to be on shaky ground these days. 

Nicki Minaj's BF Pleads Guilty Driving On Suspended License

3/15/2019 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

More legal troubles for Nicki Minaj's bad boy boyfriend ... he just pled guilty to driving on a suspended license. 

According to court files, obtained by TMZ, Kenneth Petty pled guilty in New York to aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle. Kenneth's gotta pay $88 in fines and clear his license. 

In the docs, a police officer says he witnessed Kenneth blow through a stop sign around 1:30 AM on Sept. 13 in Long Island. Cops pulled Kenneth over and discovered he was driving on a suspended license. 

As you know, Nicki's boyfriend has a checkered past ... he's been convicted of first-degree attempted rape and manslaughter. While serving hard time for killing a guy, Kenneth racked up tons of prison violations.

So, relatively speaking ... this is no big whoop. 

Rosario Dawson Cory Booker Rumors are True ... We're Dating and In Love!!!

3/14/2019 11:59 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Rosario Dawson's all in on Cory Booker for President in 2020, but she might be a little biased ... because she just confirmed with us ... they're in a serious, loving relationship!!!

The actress was at the Reagan National Airport in D.C. Thursday when our guy quizzed her on what's been widely rumored -- she's the woman Booker referred to last month on the Breakfast Club when he said he was dating someone very special, while adding, "I got a boo."

It didn't take much prodding before Dawson said it was true and began gushing over her man, calling him an amazing human being and saying their relationship is a wonderful thing.

She continued ... "I am just grateful to be with someone that I respect and love and admire so much," and added several more doting words to describe the presidential hopeful.

Speaking of that ... Rosario says Cory would be an amazing Prez, and she's pushing him with a campaign button.

As for whether wedding bells are on the horizon, making her potential First Lady material ... she's not quite ready to say.

Amber Heard Besame Mucho!!! Locks Lips w/ Argentine Bae

3/14/2019 12:00 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Amber Heard is getting it ... with "It" director Andy Muschietti.

Amber and her new BF came up for air after hanging out Wednesday in L.A. The actress was all smiles before the 45-year-old director from Argentina packed on some serious PDA. Andy, of course, was the main man behind the movie inspired by Stephen King's 1986 horror novel.

Amber looked pretty biz caj ... with a tan trench coat, black dress and matching boots. Pretty elegant too, with a YSL handbag. BTW ... it appears she's moved on from her last fling ... with art dealer Vito Schnabel. They went public last July at the Wimbledon Championship but her smooch with Andy seems to signify Amber and Vito's relationship has gone kaput.

Amber's got a lot on her plate lately with Johnny Depp's latest legal battle. As we first reported ... the actor filed legal docs citing new evidence he never beat Amber when they were married.

Channing Tatum & Jessie J Spotted in London Hand in Hand on Jaywalking Date

3/14/2019 6:48 AM PDT

Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan are both officially on the move with their new flames ... Channing's finally been spotted out with Jessie J

The "Magic Mike" actor and singer took a stroll Thursday in London, with big smiles on their faces. It's one of the first times we've seen Channing and Jessie together in public ... after a LOT of juicy speculation.

As you can see -- they looked pretty into each other as they jaywalked across a road and waded into a bike lane while across the pond -- but lucky for them, traffic seemed to be nonexistent.  

Meanwhile, back at home, Jenna's been doing her thing as well with her new BF, Steve Kazee. They recently took Jenna and Channing's daughter, Everly, on a Disneyland trip ... just the three of them.

Looks like the conscious uncoupling thing is going swell for these two exes since their big split. Good for them. 

Ben Affleck & Lindsay Shookus Back Together ... On a Walk to Remember

3/12/2019 7:26 AM PDT

Ben Affleck and Lindsay Shookus are reunited ... and it looks so good! 

The former couple was back together Monday night, taking a stroll through L.A. ... and they sure seemed to be happy to be in each other's company. Nothing beats an evening walk with your former bae ... who's sure looking like she's back to full-blown bae status. 

Ben and Lindsay started hanging out again last month ... after splitting up last summer. They're already back to doing public events together too. The couple was super tight in NYC last week as they flew back to the west coast after one of his premieres.

Not much PDA during their L.A. walk, but we're still ready to call this romance rekindled.

After all, they've got some history, and now that Ben's clean ... why not go full steam ahead? We're guessing, anyway.

Not everyone's looking to be single for the summer. 

Pete Davidson What a Beast ... On His Arm

3/8/2019 7:35 AM PST

Pete Davidson's got some new ink -- no, it's not Kate Beckinsale's initials or a giant portrait of her "Underworld" character on his back ... but it's still pretty majestic.

The 'SNL' star has a forever friend on his forearm now, thanks to a giant tattoo of the legendary mythical beast -- the unicorn.

Pete's pal and Top Shelf Tattoos artist, Ryan Mullins, shared a couple photos earlier this week of the making of the body art ... which appears to be Davidson's biggest tat yet.

It's unclear if Pete will be adding a flash of color to his unicorn, but the black ink version looks pretty impressive as is.

Also unclear if the comedian's tattoo is simply his spirit animal, or it is a secret love message to his latest boo, Beckinsale, but if he's learned anything from his past ... probably not.

Tristan Thompson Not 'Dating' Mystery Hottie ... Met Through Teammate

3/7/2019 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Tristan Thompson isn't moving on from Khloe Kardashian just yet, because he's NOT dating the hot chick he's been hanging with in NYC, but they are getting to know each other through a mutual friend ... one of his NBA teammates. 

We've learned Tristan's new friend is Karizma Ramirez ... and sources close to her tell us they met last week through Jordan Clarkson.

As you know, Tristan and Karizma were photographed inside Nobu in NYC Tuesday night ... after being spotted together last week at another dinner in the Big Apple. That sparked dating rumors, obvi, since it came directly on the heels of Khloe kicking Tristan to the curb.

But, the sources close to her say Karizma and TT are insisting there's nothing romantic going on between them.

We're told they've only hung out at the 2 dinners, which were both group situations -- where Tristan was flying solo, and Karizma was Jordan's guest. 

We got Tristan out in New York last week, but he was silent on Khloe and his cheating scandal with Jordyn Woods.

As for Karizma, we're told she's NOT dating Jordan either, they've known each other forever through his family. BTW, she used to kick it with Chris Brown, but nothing serious.
