Katy Perry Confirms She's "Not Single" During American Idol Finale. We're looking at you, Orlando Bloom. For months, there have been sightings and speculation that the actor had rekindled his romance with Katy Perry. With all the photographic evidence -- dates in Tokyo and Rome and meeting Pope Francis together -- it certainly looked like things were back on for the couple who had taken "space" at the beginning of 2017. Well, the sparks were flying in 2018 and, to add more fuel to that fire, Perry recently declared her relationship status and, well, she's not flying solo. During the American Idol finale Monday night, she spilled the beans during an on-air encounter with The Bachelorette's Becca Kufrin. "Can I be in the running?" the mesmerized host asked Kufrin as Ryan Seacrest promoted the upcoming season premiere of the show, in which she picks one suitor to marry. "I'm not single, but I still like you." There you have it -- the confirmation fans have been waiting for. While Perry didn't name her beau, given all the physical evidence, we'd bet on Bloom. "She's on tour for the next several months and will be all over the place. She knows sustaining a relationship or any kind of normalcy will be difficult," a source told E! News back in February. "But, they love each other and never really stopped talking when they were apart. They've been seeing each other off and on the entire time." While insiders told E! News their relationship was unofficial, "easy" and "free" earlier this year, it seems the two may have waded into the more serious pool. Either way, as Perry confirmed, she's certainly no single lady. (Eonline)

Avril Lavigne Is Quietly Dating Billionaire Heir Phillip Sarofim. He definitely isn't a skater boi! It appears as if Avril Lavigne is quietly dating Phillip Sarofim, the son of Texas billionaire Fayez Sarofim, E! News can report. A source tells E! News that that the relationship is very new they've been seeing Sarofim for two to three months, after Avril and Canadian music producer J.R. Rotem, who were dating last year, split. The source tells E! that the couple, who was spotted hanging out in Los Angeles on April 24, see each other by going back and forth to each other's home bases. The source says they met through friends at a dinner party and hit it off. As for Phillip's pedigree, he is one of five children Fayez, a Coptic American heir to the Sarofim family fortune, fund manager for a number of Dreyfus family stock funds, an original and second largest shareholder of Kinder Morgan and part owner of the NFL team Houston Texans. For their outing last month, the "Complicated" singer donned a billowy, off-the-shoulder red dress. While her new man opted for navy blue pants and a white Polo T-shirt with red stripes across the shoulders. Meanwhile, Phillip kept things cool with a pair of yellow-framed sunglasses in addition to a matching navy-blue baseball cap. The couple stopped by a local coffee shop and were spotted holding hands after grocery shopping at Jaydes Market at the Beverly Glen Center, reported Daily Mail at the time the photos were taken. Previously, Phillip was married to Lori Krohn and it is unknown when the two split. Oddly enough, to make things "complicated" (pun intended), Phillip married Lori's mother Susan Krohn, ex-wife of fellow billionaire Tracy Krohn, in December 2014. Lavigne, who took a break from the public eye while battling Lyme disease, was married to Chad Kroeger from 20132015 and Sum 41's Deryck Whibley from 20062010. E! News has reached out to a rep for Avril for comment. (Eonline)

Ariana Grande Is Dating Pete Davidson: ''It's Casual'' But She's ''Very Happy.'' Live from Saturday night... it's a hot new romance! Ariana Grande is seeing Saturday Night Live comedian Pete Davidson, E! News has learned. "It just started and is casual," a source says. Coincidentally, their budding relationship comes soon after both Ariana and Pete ended previous relationships. The "No Tears Left to Cry" songstress confirmed her split from rapper Mac Miller earlier this month. Likewise, news broke just last week that Davidson and Cazzie David had broken up after two years together. The source explains that despite Ariana and Mac officially breaking up after attending Coachella in April, "the relationship had been over long before." "Ariana was holding Mac together for a long time and it wasn't a good relationship for her," the source tells us. "She is in a very good place and very happy now." Less than a week ago, Miller was arrested for DUI and hit and run. The Los Angeles Police Department confirmed to E! News that 26-year-old was driving in the San Fernando Valley just before 1 a.m. on May 9 when his 2016 G-Wagon hit a pole, knocking it over. Miller and his two passengers then fled the scene on foot, authorities added. Grande, 24, posted a cryptic tweet following the incident that read, "pls take care of yourself." The pop star had this to say about her ex in an Instagram post confirming their breakup: "This is one of my best friends in the whole world and favorite people on the planet Malcolm McCormick. respect and adore him endlessly and am grateful to have him in my life in any form, at all times regardless of how our relationship changes or what the universe holds for each of us!" As for Ariana and Pete, they've known each other since at least 2016 when she hosted an episode of Saturday Night Live. It's currently unclear how and when the stars reconnected, and they've yet to comment publicly on their relationship status. Grande performed at Sunday night's 2018 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas, while her new beau celebrated the season 43 finale of SNL in New York City. Bossip first reported the news. (Eonline)

American Idol's Caleb Lee Hutchinson and Maddie Poppe Are Dating. Bet you didn't see this news coming! Viewers watching American Idol were more than prepared to see a winner be announced during Monday night's finale. But before Ryan Seacrest could deliver the results, he wanted Caleb Lee Hutchinson and Maddie Poppe to share some news. "Back with you here live on American Idol. It's finale time. Results are coming up very soon. But before we get to those, we want to celebrate the incredible talent that is your top two," the host shared. "And the country has fallen in love with the two of you. I'm just wondering, is there a special significance to the song when you sing it with Maddie?" Are you sitting down for this? The final two contestants are dating! "She's my best pal," Caleb Lee shared with the audience. "I've known her since Hollywood Week, and she actually happens to be my girlfriend." Judges Lionel Richie, Katy Perry and Luke Bryan appeared totally shocked -- and supportive -- of the news. As for fans watching at home, they were equally excited to hear the news as the duo proceeded to perform a stripped-down version of "Over the Rainbow." And yes, they held hands during the song. For those who want to know who came out on top, we have the results. When it comes to ABC's first season of American Idol, Maddie was crowned the winner. Monday night's two-hour finale also featured special appearances from Nick Jonas, BeBe Rexha, Darius Rucker, Patti LaBelle and the legendary Kermit the Frog. Until next season, music lovers! American Idol's finale airs Monday night at 9 p.m. on ABC. (Eonline)

Inside Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas' Private World. For Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas, an on-screen fairy tale paved the way for one of their own. The actress of Big Love, He's Just Not That Into You and Zootopia fame first met her life partner on the set of Once Upon a Time in 2011, though timing was not initially on their side. They had an "immediate connection," a source later told E! News back in early 2012. However, at the time, Dallas was married to Lara Pulver while Goodwin was engaged to Joey Kern. The co-stars, who famously played Snow White and Prince Charming for six seasons of the ABC series, formed a friendship. "They were shooting in Canada together and because they were both away from home, they inevitably started to socialize together off the set as well as on -- and they got closer as friends," the source explained. However, being on set in another country put a strain on Dallas' marriage and the pair of actors separated in the fall of 2011, the source added. Meanwhile, Goodwin and her actor beau had broken off their engagement a few months earlier in the spring. Both single, "it was then that his connection to Ginnifer deepened and they fell in love," the source described. "He's a really kind man...quite a gentleman at heart, and I think she really appreciated that he was more considerate than some of the other men in Hollywood." Just like that, life was imitating art. "The relationship has been full-on since the moment it turned romantic," the source added, "and they spend every moment together. There was no reason to wait and take it slow -- they fell in love, and it feels right." "I knew that in fact I was going to marry my husband Josh at Disneyland because I took him for his first time ever and we had just started dating...We were on Big Thunder Mountain and he threw his arms in the air and he goes, 'This is the best day of my life' and I was like, 'We're totally getting married,'" she recalled in an interview with Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan. She was right. The two headed down the aisle two years later -- with a little one on the way. "It was pretty perfect," Goodwin recalled to Ripa and Strahan. "It was a last-minute kind of thing because we thought of ourselves as exceptionally modern and we were like, 'We don't need to get married. We'll get married later' and then I was nine months pregnant and we were like 'We totally need to get married,' so at nine months, we invited like maybe 25 people." After proposing to his real-life leading lady in October 2013, the couple exchanged vows in front of close friends and family in an intimate Los Angeles ceremony in April 2014. "Ginnifer and Josh seemed very relaxed and happy," a source described at the time. "They were surrounded by their nearest and dearest friends and kept it very intimate and simple." As their fairy tale romance evolved, Goodwin made another lifetime dream come true: motherhood. "I want three or five children, but I need a bigger house or a smaller closet. I'm 32, so I'm already thinking about that. If it happened right now, I would absolutely have a baby," the star told InStyle UK in 2010. That moment arrived when she gave birth to the couple's first child, son Oliver Finlay Dallas, in May 2014. Younger brother Hugo Wilson Dallas followed two years later in June 2016. "I think I was born to be a boy mama," she told Ripa and Strahan. Just like that, they had begun their newest -- and perhaps most important -- roles as parents. Despite their joint Hollywood careers, the two stars have managed to keep their family life low-key, rather typical and mostly out of the spotlight over the years. They're often spotted making school runs, stepping out on walks as a family and making trips to one of the mom and dad's favorite places, Disneyland. Of course, there is the occasional red-carpet date night sprinkled in. "It's mommy and daddy night out. It's crazy," Goodwin told E! News at the 2015 People's Choice Awards, seven months after welcoming their first son. As the couple told us at the time, they usually "never" get to go on date nights together. "It's so much better [than I thought]," she told E! News of her initial experiences with motherhood. "It makes me feel like acting is not at all creative, but being a parent, anybody who's a parent I want to like give an Oscar to." With their family coming together, the couple was still playing one on television, too. "We're besties and I think there's a mutual respect. Certainly I respect her talent as an actress and to be able to work with that every day is a dream come true and then to be able to go home with my best friend is also the best," Dallas told Access Hollywood at the 2017 Academy Awards. Unfortunately, their time as Snow White and Prince Charming came to a close as they bid farewell to their longtime roles with the sixth season last year. When the series' end arrived at the seventh season marker, the couple returned for the last episode to properly say goodbye. "I mean, it's a privilege. It's a privilege to come back. We were wondering why it took them so long to invite us back," Dallas told E! News ahead of the Friday finale. "But we're glad that they did. You know, it's a show that is so important to us. For me, it will always be the thrill of my life to have been a part of it. And to come back was a no-brainer. Of course we couldn't wait to come back." While their fairy tale life on-screen has officially ended, their real-world love story is still very much underway. With Goodwin celebrating a birthday today and their sons' special days coming at the end of this month and next, they are all kicking off a new chapter to their own storybooks -- together. (Eonline)

Willow Smith Admits She Used to Be Jealous of "Curvier" Girls. Willow Smith is opening up about her struggle with body image. During a new episode of Red Table Talk with mom Jada Pinkett Smith and grandmother Adrienne Banfield, Willow shares her insecurities and reveals what's made her jealous over the years. "I, in my own life struggled with, curvier women and curvier girls have always gotten more attention from the boys that I've liked and have ended up dating the boys that I've liked," Willow explains. "That constantly happening and me you know being their friend but not really seeing them look at me in a certain way... then you start to wonder, 'Dang am I just not desirable? Is my body just not what society likes?' So it does just get really hard for a lot of girls." Willow later shares, "I hear my friends that are curvy, they are telling me, 'It's so great that you can wear some shorts and a tank top and not feel overexposed or feel like people are looking at you differently.' Everyone wants what they don't have." She then goes on to read a question from a Facebook user who wants to know why girls are "so mean" about looks. "Because they wished they had what the other person has," Willow replies, adding that it's all about "envy." "Honestly whenever another girl tells you something about your body or your looks, she's really just talking to herself," Willow says. Also during the episode, Jada shares with her family that she's been dealing with hair loss. (Eonline)

Jada Pinkett Smith is coming to terms with a big part of her identity that's fading away -- her hair. Jada made the revelation Monday, saying alopecia was causing significant hair loss. She says her balding is the reason she's been wearing so many turbans in public lately. The moment she realized her hair was going sounds pretty frightening. On her Facebook show, "Red Table Talk" ... Jada said she was in the shower one day and noticed handfuls of hair coming out. She said she was "literally shaking with fear." Now, she says she keeps her hair short, and plans to keep it that way. Jada says doctors and specialists have not been able to diagnose what's causing the hair loss, but she adds ... her friends think it's stress. On a positive note, she explains that out of all the things that "higher power" takes away from people in life, she's happy to offer up her hair. Well said, Jada. Perspective is everything. (TMZ)

Khloe Kardashian hits out at comments that she's 'focusing too much on her body' after pregnancy. Khloe Kardashian welcomed a baby girl in April, something many fans will know has been a dream of hers for a really long time. The 33-year-old has kept herself to herself while she bonds with her daughter, named True, but has slowly made her reappearance on social media to keep her fans updated with everything that's going on. After discovering her true love for the gym and keeping fit, it wasn't long until Khloe got back in the gym, which she's previously said is "about clarity for [her] mind and soul". However, it seems that not everyone is pleased with her decision to hit the gym just five weeks after True's birth (not that it's any of their business). Opening up on Snapchat, Khloe spoke of her frustrations at seeing comments about her choice online. She said, "The beginning parts of working out kind of suck because you're pushing your body so hard, you're so tired, and you're trying to get, you know, back into your rhythm." "And it's much more difficult than I think you expect it to be. I've been working out for 11 days now, I feel really good, but tired. My body is sore because it's re-waking itself back up." "What I'm annoyed about is that I've read a couple of times on Twitter that, you know, they feel like I'm focusing too much on my body, but the truth is, I've worked out five or six days a week before I got pregnant and that's my sanctuary and something I love to do, so I want to start doing that now and getting into my rhythm. In between feedings I want to find time to work out because that's going to be my new normal. "Just because I have a baby doesn't mean I have to stop doing the things that I love and I love working out and getting my mind right...I've been craving these workouts. I feel really good." You've got to do right by yourself, Khloe; forget what anyone else says. Khloe finally gave us a good look at little True earlier in the month and she is GORGEOUS! The Instagram video was posted to celebrate one month since she was born, and in true Kardashian style, it featured a filter to give True freckles and a flower in her hair. Never change. But, much like with anything the Kardashians post, it didn't come without a backlash. Khloe was once again forced to deny that O.J. Simpson is her father after commenters suggested he was, based on the snap of True. Avid fans of Keeping Up With The Kardashians will know that Khloe's father, the late Robert Kardashian, represented O. J. Simpson when he was on trial for the murder of his wife, Nicole Brown. The commenter wrote: "Her daughter is Black which proves that O.J. Simpson is Khloe's dad." Khloe immediately shut down the haters, responding: "I mean... her dad is black silly. That's why she's black babe. So simple, so sassy. You go, girl. Earlier this week, after her return to Snapchat, Khloe posed with tiny True and we could just see her little arm. Now, however, we've seen the 1-month-old in all her glory and we can't get over how cute she is. The reveal comes just days after the couple was spotted on multiple outings, sparking rumors that they're giving the relationship another go after Tristan was seen in videos getting close to other women. Tristan then spoke out about becoming a father-of-two for the first time. Speaking on the podcast, Road Trippin', he said: "Prince is getting big, jumping on a little trampoline and baby True is eating, sleeping and, uh, sh*ttin'. That's all they do. That's all they do." He went on to explain how different it is, being a dad to a little girl: "Yeah, I think with a girl, you're just so much more emotionally like... With a boy, it's just like, "Hey, man. You'll be alright, man. Stop crying." But [with True], it's like, "True, it's gonna be OK. You know, we're right here. Daddy's here to feed you. It's me! Look, yeah!" It's way different, but it's fun, though. It changes you." A source told E! News that the couple hopes to work through their problems. They said, "Khloe has given Tristan another chance at their relationship and is trying to put the pieces back together for the sake of True. Although she is crushed by the scandal, Khloe desperately wants things to work and wants to have a complete family." Despite this being the first time Tristan's spoken out on the matter, a couple of members of the family have spoken out about the situation, with the most recent being the matriarch of the family, Kris Jenner. Speaking to Ellen on Friday May 4, she gave us a much-needed update on how Khloe's getting on with being a new mum. "Khloe is amazing. I'm so proud of that kid. I get choked up because she's such a good mom. Honestly it gets so emotional because - I was in Cleveland last week and it was snowing and she was all nestled in the nursery [with] the baby... She's just concentrating on that. Just being a mom, her baby. And I think that's what her sisters are doing as well. "She's so excited about motherhood and trying to get the nursing thing down. She's trying, she's really trying. That was a little bit tricky when I was there. She's figuring it out one day at a time and she's the best mom already and the baby is so cute, little True." She also revealed how dramatic the situation was when True was born, given the circumstances: "I think we do what we always do and that's spring into action with love and we all hopped on a plane and flew to Cleveland, because that's what we know to do. I'm there to support my kids no matter what happens and I just do the best I can just like anybody else would for their family. There's a lot of us, you know. So we all get together and we do things together and we're a force to be reckoned with." "So we get there and we're supporting her - she gave birth within hours of us arriving, it was crazy. It very exciting though at the same time. "I think it was all sort of simultaneously happening. We knew she was going to have the baby within a week and then I brought the doctor. So I brought the doctor on the plane and the nurse practitioner like, 'we've got to get there!' And then we were calling from the plane going 'what's going on' and they [said] 'she just got her epidural'. I didn't even think we would make it but we did." We're so glad to hear that Khlo is staying focused and is settling into motherhood well. Tristan, the Cleveland Cavaliers player at the centre of the sh*t storm, has remained tight-lipped about the situation, but broke his Instagram silence recently, prompting a barrage of hate from frustrated fans. Avoiding the topic completely, he posted about a basketball win, writing: "WHAT AN ATMOSPHERE IN THE Q!! GREAT WIN #OnToTheNextOne" It's probably just an unfortunate phrasing choice, but his sentiments didn't go down well with fans. At all. One wrote, "'On to the next one' you talking about the game or the next woman you're gonna impregnate & play up on." Others said, "u r a good player, but sadly not in basketball", "THE AUDACITY" and "Oh we KNOW you're "on to the next one" SMH". Oh dear, Tristan. Khloe has yet to say anything on the matter, but fans think she's been sending cryptic messages via her app. (British Glamour)

Paris Jackson was a no-show at the Billboard Music Awards, though her brother Prince, grandmother Katherine and aunt Rebbie supported Janet Jackson receiving her prestigious Icon honor. One day after the Las Vegas event, the only daughter of the late Michael Jackson revealed she "had absolutely no idea" about Janet's tribute on Sunday, or that her own family members would be in attendance much less. "No one from my mgmt reached out to me about attending billboards or about the award, and no one from my family did either. I had absolutely no idea until y'all spammed with hatred," Paris shared on her Instagram Story Monday. Meanwhile, Paris shared cryptic messages about her current dynamic with the Jackson family. "Dear social media followers, friends, stalkers, lovers and haters, and fellow moonwalkers: Please do not tell me/demand/try to control how I handle my relationship with the people in my life, specifically my family," she wrote. "As amazing and as s -- -y as things can be, it is no one's business but ours. I understand that some of you feel some sort of connection or need to be apart (sic) of our lives considering you watched us grow up," Paris continued. "However, I am handling my situation exactly how my father did. And I am happy keeping it that way. I will always have love and respect for my family. ALWAYS," the star added. She concluded, "Every family has their moments of trauma, heartbreak, separation, love, oneness, tribe, pain, everything. EVERY FAMILY. My family, specifically, and a good number of others... well, our drama is broadcasted worldwide through media. But that doesn't mean our family issues are any different from yours. Ours are just made public." Sunday's BBMAs was a history-making moment for Janet who became the first black women to receive the Icon award. In addition, not only was the moment her first television performance in nine years, but it was also the first time she has performed a live broadcast since she gave birth to son Eissa Al Mana in January 2017. Jackson, who has garnered a total of 18 BBMA nominations and 10 wins, joined a group of iconic winners including Neil Diamond (2011), Stevie Wonder (2012), Prince (2013), Jennifer Lopez (2014), Celine Dion (2016) and Cher (2017).

Jack Osbourne and his wife -- who just filed for divorce -- are ripping a page outta the Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin playbook. We got Jack and Lisa Osbourne out with their 3 kids Monday in Studio City -- looking every bit like a happy family unit. You'd really never know Lisa just filed for divorce a few days ago. Jack summed up their new arrangement in 2 words that were NOT "conscious uncoupling" ... but he admits Chris and Gwyneth have influenced them. Check it out ... Jack and Lisa even joked about their pending divorce when we asked them to give Prince Harry and Meghan some newlywed advice. (TMZ)

Patrick J. Adams Apologizes After Being Accused of Bullying a Body Shamer on Social Media. Patrick J. Adams is apologizing for his recent social media post. Over the weekend, the Suits actor attended his former co-star Meghan Markle's royal wedding to Prince Harry alongside his wife, Pretty Little Liars alum Troian Bellisario. After the wedding celebrations ended, Adams and Bellisario headed to the airport to catch a flight out of London. While there, Adams posted a photo to Instagram of a sleeping woman who he says body shamed him and Bellisario. "She reads her paper. See's picture of me and Troian from wedding. 'My God. What a terrible photo of you.' I look over. 'Really. I kind of like that photo. What do you think is wrong with it?' She pauses. 'Well, you're just so...chunky.'" Adams detailed in the since-deleted post (via Daily Mail). "She laughs and falls asleep. I photograph her sleeping. And....scene. #royalwedding." After receiving some backlash for the post, Adams took down the photo and has now replaced it with a lengthy apology. "Yesterday I posted a photo of a woman who did some casual body shaming of my wife and I in the airport," Adams began. "My intention was solely to put a face to the people who think that sort of glancing commentary is necessary, helpful or funny. Some of the comments on the post instead said I was being a bully and should have taken the 'high road' (some also doubled down on the body shaming. Thumbs up guys!) I thought it over and agreed and took it down, not because I felt the woman was right or fair or undeserving of being called out but because any sense of being a bully or lashing out felt wrong." "I'm no bully. What that woman said to us was offensive and unnecessary but I should have told her she was rude and out of line and left it at that," he went on to write. "I'm sorry I didn't. I was too shocked and annoyed and Canadian - so I avoided the confrontation. Again, I'm sorry." He then shared what he learned from this experience, telling his Instagram followers, "1. Don't talk shit about the way people look. You have no idea what's going on with them and your commentary will always make their day worse not better. 2. If someone does. Don't use the internet to settle scores. Tell them right to their face and in public that they're part of the problem and not the solution. 3. Believe pretty much nothing you read in magazines. Good or bad. The machinery runs on misfortune and oversimplification. 4. Be cool to yourself and others at every opportunity. Life is too short for all of this. Thx for reading. Now back to our lives..." Adams and Markle played love interests on the hit USA series for seven seasons. Their characters (spoiler!) tied the knot during the season seven finale of the show last month. (Eonline)

Jason Bateman and Will Arnett got into a car accident Monday evening while riding in a taxi in New York City, but they seem to be okay ... TMZ has learned. Eyewitnesses tell us the "Arrested Development" stars and 2 other people were cruising in a taxi van near Madison Square Park, when their driver rear-ended a sedan in front of them. We're told cops were called, but no one was transported to the hospital. Law enforcement sources say the driver of the black Ford sedan claimed to have suffered some back pain as a result of the collision -- but otherwise, seemed fine. We're told Jason and Will also went uninjured, and even stuck around to talk to the police. Most of the "Arrested Development" cast was in NYC Monday doing press to hype up their upcoming 5th season. That includes Jeffrey Tambor, too, by the way ... despite his sexual misconduct scandal. As far as this goes, though, not nearly as much drama for the Bluths. No one was arrested or cited for the accident. Rest easy, 'AD' fans -- the TV fam's still intact. (TMZ)

Rose McGowan just lawyered up big-time in her cocaine possession case ... we've learned she's hired Jose Baez ... the attorney who won acquittals for Casey Anthony and Aaron Hernandez in his double murder case. McGowan was charged with felony cocaine possession after cops say they found a few small bags of coke in a wallet she had left behind at Washington Dulles International Airport back in January. McGowan and her previous lawyer had said she was framed, because 5 hours passed between the time she got off the plane and the cleaning crew found the wallet. What's more, McGowan's previous lawyer suggested Harvey Weinstein might be behind it all out of revenge. Baez tells TMZ, "I think she's absolutely 100% innocent in this case and we're looking forward to showing that in a court of law." He added, "She's absolutely 100% determined to clear her name." (TMZ)

Mac Miller blew nearly twice the legal limit when he was arrested last Thursday for DUI, and that was well after he fled his crash scene. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Mac's BAC was .15 when cops arrested him at his home. Mac drove his white G-Wagon into a utility pole and the impact was bad enough to cause the airbags to deploy. Mac and two other passengers miraculously managed to flee on foot, but cops eventually ran his plates and arrested him for DUI and hit and run at his home after he confessed. The arrest comes on the heels of his breakup with Ariana Grande, whom he dated for nearly 2 years. Sources close to Mac tell us Ariana had trying to keep him straight, but things started to unravel last year ... and they ended things right after Coachella. After the accident Ariana tweeted, "Pls take care of yourself." (TMZ)

Mario Batali's website claims it struck a deal to donate proceeds from its sauces to a women's group ... but TMZ's learned the organization hasn't received a dime because no deal was ever struck. We noticed this huge banner posted on mariobatalisauces.com's landing page back in December 2017 shortly after sexual misconduct allegations first surfaced against the disgraced chef. The banner claims the makers of Batali's sauces are donating its proceeds to Women Employed, hailed as one of the nation's most successful advocates for working women. But, we checked with the organization and a rep tells us it was unaware the banner went up on Batali's website. The rep explains there were early talks about forming a partnership, but Women Employed ultimately decided not to move forward ... which explains why it hasn't gotten a check ... despite what the announcement claims. As we reported ... Batali was dumped by his partners on the heels of new claims of sexual misconduct. We reached out to Batali's sauce makers to ask for an explanation for the banner, so far no word back. (TMZ)

R. Kelly is being sued for sexual assault by a woman who claims he held her against her will and abused her ... TMZ has learned. A woman named Faith Rodgers filed the lawsuit in NYC, and claims they met in March 2017, when she was 19 ... after a performance in San Antonio. In the suit, she says a couple months later Kelly flew her to NYC for one of his concerts. After the show, she says Kelly "bombarded" her hotel room and initiated "unwanted sexual contact" ... including oral and vaginal intercourse. After what she calls "abusive sex" ... Kelly allegedly criticized her for being boring in bed. According to docs, obtained by TMZ, Faith caught herpes from Kelly. She says they dated for about one year, during which he mentally, verbally and sexually abused her. Faith claims he locked her in rooms, studios and cars to punish her for failing to fulfill his sexual desires. In the suit, Faith says Kelly had a female assistant stand guard to make sure she didn't flee. Faith's attorney tells us she is the woman who secretly recorded Kelly. TMZ broke the story ... she recently recorded a phone conversation, attempting to coax a confession out of him. She is suing Kelly for sexual battery, false imprisonment and failure to disclose an STD. (TMZ)

Rich the Kid's estranged wife claims he attacked her numerous times and forced her to have abortions during their marriage. Antonette Willis just filed new docs in their divorce, and in them she says the rapper got violent with her so many times ... it was common for police to be called to their house. On one occasion she says she had followed him to a hotel where he was meeting a woman -- and when he came home the next day they got into a fight. Antonette says he grabbed her and hit her ... and things escalated when Rich's family came over, because his sister broke a window. Rich and Antonette have 2 toddlers -- 1-year-old Queen and 2-year-old King -- but in the docs, obtained by TMZ, she says she also got pregnant several other times. She claims Rich forced her to have at least 3 abortions because he didn't want any more kids. Antonette says she has zero income and has been forced to move in with family back in Georgia. Meanwhile, she claims Rich has moved his new gf, Tori Brixx, into the family home in L.A. She's demanding spousal support and child support. On a somewhat pettier note about the lifestyle to which she'd become accustomed -- Antonette bitches that Rich would always fly first class, while sticking her in coach. (TMZ)
