The daughter of Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli will be back into the public eye in a big way for season 30 of the popular celebrity dance competition. We were outside the rehearsal studio Tuesday and got a woman in a visor -- who looked like Olivia -- being escorted inside.

Though the official cast will not be announced until next week, weve confirmed the woman in the visor was, in fact, Olivia. It appears her partner will be Val Chmerkovskiy.

Jade -- who was a big YouTube star well before she got embroiled in the college admissions controversy -- will join the likes of JoJo Siwa, Kenya Moore, Olympic gymnast Suni Lee and many more celebs on the upcoming season.

COVID-19 Woman Busted for Fake Vaxx Card ... Cited Maderna Shot!!!

9/1/2021 8:07 AM PT

A woman tried pulling a fast one by allegedly passing off a phony vaccine card to get around Hawaiis strict COVID protocol -- but she got caught red-handed ... thanks to a major typo.

24-year-old Chloe Mrozak of Illinois was arrested and booked last week for presenting fraudulent vaccination documents during a trip to the islands. She was actually successful in getting there with what cops call a bogus vax card.

Officials caught on to her, though, in part because she apparently misspelled Moderna ... writing in Maderna instead, not once but TWICE! Her card suggested shed gotten the jabs in Delaware -- courtesy of a health org called the NRA. So yeah, the jig was up pretty fast.

Special agents coordinated to catch Mrozak on her way back to the mainland ... and sure enough, on August 28, they tracked her down at the airport in Honolulu, and took her in. Reports say officials found no evidence shed actually been inoculated.

As for why she mighta gone to these lengths -- the operating theory is that she didnt wanna deal with Hawaiis mandatory 10-day quarantine rule for the unvaccinated.

She mighta gotten away with it too ... if shed been a sharper speller. See? It matters, kids!!!

Kourtney Kardashian Appears to Shade Scott ... You Treated Me Badly

9/1/2021 6:38 AM PT

If Kourtney Kardashian is not dragging Scott Disick over the coals, shes sure making it seem that way, because everything about her post early Wednesday morning points to her ex.

Kourtney posted this image ... 2 people locked in a kiss, with the caption ... Relax ... This is going to hurt FOREVER -- followed by, HOW TO GET OVER SOMEONE who treated you BADLY.

Its more than a coincidence ... the kiss mimics Kourtney/Traviss passionate kiss on a boat in Italy -- a kiss that triggered Scott.

As we reported, Scott saw the pic and sent a DM to Kourtneys other ex, Younes Bendjima, shading Kourtney for the PDA display. Younes wasnt having it, and apparently nor was Kourtney.

Its puzzling ... when Kourtney and Scott split it seemed amicable, and they appear to be co-parenting without big problems. There was a time when Scott was off the rails and Kourtney was concerned about him being around their 3 kids, but that seemed to be in the rearview.

As for Kourtney and Travis, theyve left Italy for Paris, where they spent Tuesday at Disneyland.

That may be the happiest place on earth, but the home front ... not so much.

Roe vs. Wade Abortion Rights Upended in Texas ... Supreme Court Signals the End

9/1/2021 5:43 AM PT

Abortion rights are now squarely on the chopping block after the U.S. Supreme Court refused to stop the most restrictive anti-abortion law in the country from going into effect.

The Texas law prohibits abortions after the 6th week of pregnancy  As you know, many/most women dont even know theyre pregnant during the first 6 weeks. Whats more, if an abortion is performed after the 6th week, any citizen in the country -- not just Texas, but the entire country -- can sue anyone who helps facilitate the abortion for $10,000 plus attorneys fees.

That means someone could sue not only the clinic, but the Uber driver who took the woman to the facility, a friend who made a call to the clinic on the womans behalf, a counselor who advised the woman, the spouse of the woman, etc.

The Supreme Court was asked to put the law on ice Tuesday night, before it went into effect at midnight, but SCOTUS was silent ... and in this case, silence speaks volumes. If the justices didnt feel this law squarely violated Roe vs. Wade, its a loud, screaming signal about their feelings toward Roe.

There are 5 justices -- and possibly 6 -- who have strongly indicated they would be inclined to overturning Roe, and they will have a shot at that soon, because a Mississippi anti-abortion law is a direct challenge to the 1973 precedent that gives women the right to an abortion.

For now ... Roe vs. Wade is effectively not the law of the land in Texas, where abortion clinics cannot exist at this point ... and its fate now hangs in the balance.

Jeremy Piven Im Ready for Entourage Reboot Including Reimagining Ari!!!

9/1/2021 6:51 AM PT

TMZ.com

Jeremy Piven is on deck, waiting for another at-bat to reprisie his role for a potential Entourage reboot -- which, BTW, would be way different in 2021 ... as would his character.

We got the HBO vet Tuesday leaving a café in L.A., where we were able to shoot the breeze with him for a bit about all this chatter on possibly resurrecting his old fan fave show ... which none other than creator Doug Ellin seemed really interested in just last week.

TMZ.com

Ditto for JP here -- who tells us he is, indeed, fully onboard like Doug told us last time -- and the same seems to go for his costars, including Adrian Grenier and co. So, with that in mind -- we had to ask ... is he pulling strings and twisting arms to make it happen BTS???

Check out the clip ... doesnt sound like Jeremy is part of the full-court press that may need to happen to get this revival off the ground -- but the dudes ready to hop on set again at the drop of a dime, it seems ... and pick up where Ari Gold left off all those years ago.

Speaking of Ari -- the powerhouse, tantrum-inclined agent who repped Vince on the series -- we asked Jeremy about what the man might look like in 2021 ... and if the show would explore that, considering the cataclysmic shift in Hollywood culture over the past decade.

Jeremy makes no bones about it with us -- AG will absolutely be different if hes brought back to the small screen. And, JPs got an interesting explanation on the why. Hmm...

As you can see ... Madonna was rocking a platinum blonde wig, trench coat and high heels for the gig, in which she throws some cash in the cabbies face and walks away with that classic swagger of hers.

Gay Nashville Couple Rejected by Wedding Venue Over Sexual Orientation ... Weird Emails with Owner

9/1/2021 12:50 AM PT

A gay couple in Nashville was told they couldnt get married at the venue they wanted because of their sexual orientation, and the venues owner certainly had an awkward way of turning them down.

Mike Gill tells us he recently got in touch with Jackie Daniel, who owns Barn in the Bend. Mike tells us he and his partner, Coty, thought the spot would be perfect, but it didnt take long for things between him and Jackie in email exchanges to get weird.

Mike says at some point, Jackie apparently figured out he was going to be marrying another man. She sent Mike an email, but it clearly stated the opposite of what she actually wanted to say -- It read, We offer same sex marriage ceremonies only.

Jackie apparently figured out her mistake and fired off another email about an hour later with a different signature, saying, We do not offer same sex marriage ceremonies.

Mike told Jackie hed let everyone in the area know that BITB was bigoted, but Jackie let him know her decision was based on her religious beliefs, saying, I wish you the best in life and the best future in all that you do.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

While Mike and Coty are pissed -- they may be fighting an uphill battle. Youll recall the U.S. Supreme Court ruled it was permissible for a baker to refuse to decorate a cake for a gay couple based on religious convictions. That case isnt the same as Mike and Cotys, and its unclear how SCOTUS would rule.

As for Mike and Coty, they tell us they dont want anything from Jackie and BITB -- just to make it known gay couples arent welcome at the venue -- and are working to lock down a more inclusive spot.

We reached out to Jackie for comment ... so far, no word back.

Amy Winehouse Dad Slams Biopic Based on Book ... Theres No Way Theyll Be Making That!!!

9/1/2021 1:00 AM PT

Amy Winehouses dad believes the production company planning to make a biopic about his late daughter is playing a losing game ... because its 100 percent not allowed.

Mitch Winehouse, Amys father and administrator of her estate, tells TMZ ... theres no way the recently announced project with Halcyon Studios can go forward, because the estate already has its own plans for a biopic and owns all the rights.

Mitch says Halcyon -- which is producing the film after it optioned Daphne Barak’s 2010 book, Saving Amy -- has not reached out to him, nor has it reached out to her record label, Universal, to use any of her music.

Amys dad claims Halcyon needs permission from the estate to make a biopic because it controls her image -- and definitely hasnt gotten it -- and that Barak needs to do the same and has also failed.

For her part, Barak says the project is not a biopic, but rather her story with her footage featuring herself with Amy and Bill Gunasti. She claims ... I have all of the releases and legal agreements needed. Just like the NFTs being marketed on OG2D, this material is also all legally my property to sell.

Mitch certainly seems to disagree, and tells us this isnt the first time something like this has happened -- where people and production companies try to use Amys image in various projects ... but the estate has denied it.

Meanwhile, Mitch says theres an authorized biopic in the works with a large production company in the UK along with Universal ... with plans to begin filming next year.

As for taking legal action against Halcyon or Barak ... Mitch doesnt think it will get to that point. He says, They cant be that stupid. Everyone knows proper licenses must be granted.

We reached out to Halcyon ... no word back so far.

Jake Paul Unretires From Boxing!!! ... 1 Day After Retiring

8/31/2021 6:02 PM PT

Jake Pauls retirement lasted a whopping 25 hours ... cause the YouTube superstar-turned-boxer says hes officially back in the fight game again.

Updated status: I’m coming out of retirement, Paul tweeted on Tuesday.

Hey, we tried to warn ya -- there was a super slim chance Jake was actually retiring for good when he claimed he was walking away from the sport on Monday ... especially since hes poised to get a FAT paycheck from the Tyron Woodley fight.

Just as expected ... Paul is back.

Remember, retiring really doesnt mean much in boxing and MMA -- a ton of guys have gotten back in the ring after calling it quits.

The legend Muhammad Ali retired a couple times ... and George Foreman and Randy Couture are among others who stepped away before changing their mind.

More recently, Conor McGregor has retired at least 3 times in his career ... and that may very well be the guy Jake is channeling with this latest publicity stunt.

Hey guys I’ve decided to retire from fighting.
Thank you all for the amazing memories! What a ride it’s been!
Here is a picture of myself and my mother in Las Vegas post one of my World title wins!
Pick the home of your dreams Mags I love you!

Britney Spears My Dad Is Trying To Extort Me ... Just Get The Hell Out of My Life!!!

8/31/2021 4:18 PM PT

Britney Spears says her dad is trying to extort her on his way out of the conservatorship and shes not having it.

According to new legal docs, obtained by TMZ, Britney points out her fathers already admitted its in her best interests for him to step down as her conservator, and she says hes trying to hold her up for more money from her as a condition to leave.

Britneys legal team claims Jamie is asking for around $2 million -- some of which will go to pay his lawyers and her former business manager Tri Star. Britneys lawyer, Matt Rosengart, fired this warning shot in the docs ... The status quo is no longer tolerable, and Britney Spears will not be extorted.

Britney says Jamie should just resign now instead of slow-playing his exit ... and if he doesnt step down from his post, she says the court should suspend him from the conservatorship on September 29.

TMZ broke the story ... Jamie agreed earlier this month to step down as Britneys conservator, but only after working with the court to ensure an orderly transition.

Britneys saying Jamies right about the need to leave the conservatorship, but she wants it to happen sooner rather than later.

Bottom line from Britneys lawyers in the docs ... The world heard Ms. Spears’s courageous and compelling testimony. Britney Spears’s life matters. Her well-being matters. Every day matters. There is no basis to wait.

Britneys attorney, Mathew Rosengart, tells us, Britney Spears will not be bullied or extorted by her father. Nor does Mr. Spears have the right to try to hold his daughter hostage by setting the terms of his removal. This is not about him, it is about the best interests of his daughter, which as a matter of law, mandate his removal.

He continues, Even putting aside the legal issues requiring his prompt removal, if he loves his daughter, Mr. Spears should resign now, today, before he is suspended. It would be the correct and decent thing to do.

Your move, Jamie.
