Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk's relationship 'hanging on by a thread.' Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk are on the rocks, a source tells us. Cooper, 44, and Shayk, 33, began dating in 2015 and welcomed daughter Lea De Seine in 2017. "Because of their daughter, they keep trying," said a source of the couple, adding, "Things are not good. Neither one is happy. The relationship is hanging by a thread." There's been regular speculation about the star couple since Cooper's highly emotional duet with "A Star Is Born" co-star Lady Gaga at the Oscars in February. But Gaga shut down rumors of any off-screen relationship by saying the supercharged performance was about the story and characters. "People saw love, and guess what? That's what we wanted you to see," Gaga explained. Last October, Page Six exclusively reported on troubles between Cooper and Shayk. A source told us at the time, "They are miserable together. They have been for months. He doesn't drink and is into spirituality. She wants to go out." The couple were also spotted at dinner out, where a spy told us, "They were not looking happy ... They barely spoke to each other at the start of the meal." A source close to the couple at the time insisted it was all "not true." But the first source speculated, "They couldn't break up when he was doing promotion for 'A Star Is Born,' but who knows what will happen now?" Shayk attended the Met Gala solo in May. The couple have both talked about keeping things private. Shayk told Glamour UK: "Because my work requires me to be out there, I just decided my personal life will be quiet. That's why it's called 'personal,' because it's something for you and your family, and I feel happy with it." Cooper previously told Howard Stern: "I just don't talk about certain things." Reps did not get back to us. (PageSix)

Why Jessica Alba Decided to Go to Therapy With 10-Year-Old Daughter Honor. Jessica Alba wants to talk it out. The L.A.'s Finest star and Honest Company mogul is improving her parenting in a way that veers from her own upbringing. As she reportedly shared during Her Campus Media's annual Her Conference on Saturday, she goes to therapy with her firstborn child, 10-year-old daughter Honor Warren. She explained, according to The Hollywood Reporter, that she decided to go with the youngster to "learn to be a better mother to her and communicate better with her." The choice wasn't exactly the go-to option when she was growing up. "Some people think, like in my family, you talk to a priest and that's it," she told the crowd, per THR. "I don't really feel comfortable talking to him about my feelings." Alba noted, "I didn't grow up in an environment where you talked about this stuff, and it was just like shut it down and keep it moving...So I find a lot of inspiration just in talking to my kids." The famous mom of three with longtime husband Cash Warren wants communication with her soon-to-be tween, but not drama. As she explained to Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show this month, "I'm just not emotionally ready for a preteen or a tween or whatever, like hormones and crushes." The star continued, "I don't encourage drama, so I'm like, 'Honor, it's not appropriate for you to have a boyfriend. It doesn't even make sense. You're in fifth grade, like where are you gonna go?'" "She's like, 'But mom,' and she likes to talk about drama and I'm like, 'Honor, we don't really do drama and she's like, 'Mom, but I love drama.'" (Eonline)

Nicolas Cage and Erika Koike do divorce quickly too! Three months after the exes tied the knot in a spur of the moment Las Vegas wedding ... they are officially divorced. According to court records the judge in Clark County, NV granted their divorce on Friday, May 31. Remember, Nic had filed for an annulment of the marriage -- 4 days after their "I dos" -- claiming the union was based on fraud, because Erika didn't disclose a couple little things: her criminal history and her relationship with another person. The marriage was rocky almost immediately. Hours after the March 23 wedding they were fighting very publicly near the valet at the Bellagio. We also got pics of them in a heated argument moments prior to getting married. Erika opposed Nic's move to annul, and a month later filed docs saying the marriage was not only totally legit, but also that she wanted spousal support -- for 4 days of marriage. Based on the docs, it seems Nic failed to score the annulment, and settled for a good old-fashioned divorce. It's unclear if Erika is getting support. We've got calls into Nic's reps. Bottom line is they're both single and ready to mingle. Hopefully not anywhere near a Vegas chapel. Total days Erika and Nic were married to each other, btw ... 69. (TMZ)

A Miley Cyrus fan got way too up close and personal with the singer as she and Liam Hemsworth were trying to leave their Barcelona hotel. Miley and her husband were attempting to get to their car Sunday, but a huge crowd was gathered outside to get a glimpse of them -- and one fan managed to get his arm around Miley's neck. Liam was walking just a couple of steps in front of Miley -- trying to clear a hole for her -- when the fan reached out, groped her hair and then yanked her closer by her neck, trying to kiss her. You can see Miley push away and someone else reach in to shove the fan away. It was over in a matter of seconds, but a scary moment nonetheless for the singer, who's been in Barcelona to perform at the Primavera Sound Festival. (TMZ)

Val Kilmer Makes Rare Public Appearance for His TwainMania Foundation. Val Kilmer had all eyes on him during a rare public appearance for his foundation. The Top Gun actor, who has stepped away from the spotlight in the last few years, attended a fundraiser for his TwainMania Foundation, created to educated children on Mark Twain's legacy. Kilmer, 59, had binoculars around his neck while he happily posed on the carpet and later gave a speech inside the event. His 23-year-old son Jack was also in attendance Sunday night. The appearance comes as Kilmer is set to hit the big screen again in Top Gun: Maverick, a sequel to the 1986 classic. Last summer, Tom Cruise gave an update on his friend and costar, saying it was "special" getting to work with Kilmer again. "He's doing really well," Cruise told Extra. Kilmer's comeback role in the film comes after what has been a mysterious Hollywood hiatus for the actor. After years of rumored health problems, he finally opened up about his battle with throat cancer during a December 2017 interview with The Hollywood Reporter. His health issues first became apparent in January 2015, when a spokesperson told PEOPLE that he was rushed to the hospital "for a possible tumor." Soon after, he took to Facebook to deny having a tumor, saying only that he "had a complication." Further rumors were repeatedly shut down by Kilmer, who was spotted out with a tracheostomy tube in October 2015 and then without it the next February. Kilmer finally opened up about his cancer recovery to The Hollywood Reporter in December in an interview alongside his children with his ex-wife Joanne Whalley: Mercedes and Jack, 22. The article revealed that the actor's two-year fight with throat cancer had "taken its toll" on the family and noted that Kilmer had undergone a procedure on his trachea which made his voice raspy and left him short of breath. Top Gun: Maverick opens June 26, 2020. (People)

Zak Bagans has been forced to shut down his haunted rocking chair exhibit ... and the devil may have made him do it. The "Ghost Adventures" star tells TMZ ... the exhibit's closure at his famous Haunted Museum in Vegas comes on the heels of several people experiencing paranormal activity on May 28 ... opening night of the exhibit and a month after buying the "Devil's Rocking Chair." The chair has ties to famed paranormal investigator Lorraine Warren and the notorious "Devil Made Me Do It" case. We're told the frightening episode started 20 minutes before the first tour group visited. Zak and a friend noticed the door to the chair's room slowly creak open all by itself. Zak also says a light focused on the chair went out when a power cord was mysteriously yanked out of the wall. Two hours later, he says a woman collapsed, began bawling and asked, "Why is this happening to me?" Shortly thereafter, she fell unconscious ... according to Zak, who adds the woman was upstairs, directly above the rocking chair exhibit. Later, Zak says 5 of his tour guides throughout the museum started crying uncontrollably. After just a few tours on opening night, Zak says the stress was too much and forced him to shut down altogether for the night. For now, Zak says the haunted rocking chair exhibit is closed until further notice. As we first reported ... Zak dropped $67k for the chair. It's the focal point to the horror book believed to be the plot of "The Conjuring 3," with Vera Farmiga returning as Lorraine Warren. We know who won't be there when and if Zak reopens the chair exhibit, and that's his pal, Post Malone. (TMZ)

The stars of VH1's "Black Ink Crew: Chicago" allegedly beat the hell out of a guest at a party for their show ... and now the dude's fighting back with a lawsuit. According to legal docs obtained by TMZ ... Ronnie Spates claims he was viciously attacked by 'Black Ink' stars Ryan Henry, Van Johnson, Don Brumfield and Junior Diaz during a December bash in Chicago ... and he says the reality show's production company wanted a fight to break out to make better TV. Spates claims he was an invited guest minding his own business at the party when Henry, Johnson, Brumfield and Diaz began kicking the crap out of him. He says the brutal beatdown left him licking serious wounds. Spates claims show producers fueled the party with loads of booze and actively sought to encourage situations that would lead to conflict, verbal spats and physical altercations ... just so they could create explosive content. TMZ broke the story ... cops were called to the party after it allegedly got violent. Our law enforcement sources say Junior Diaz was accused of sucker punching a guest, presumably Spates. Police say when they arrived at the scene, they found Spates bleeding from the mouth and disoriented, and he was taken to a hospital for stitches. Spates is suing the reality stars and Big Fish Entertainment over the incident ... and he's seeking a big payday. We reached out to Big Fish Entertainment for comment ... so far, radio silence.

Groping case against actor Kevin Spacey returns to court. Lawyers for Kevin Spacey are returning to court in the case accusing the former "House of Cards" star of groping a young man at a bar on the island of Nantucket. A pretrial hearing is scheduled in the Nantucket District Court on Monday. Authorities say the assault happened in 2016 at the Club Car, where the 18-year-old worked as a busboy. Spacey pleaded not guilty in January to a charge of indecent assault and battery. His lawyers have called the allegations "patently false." In court documents filed Friday, Spacey's attorney accused the man of deleting texting text messages that support Spacey's claims of innocence. The accuser's attorney declined to comment. The judge has ordered the Club Car to turn over surveillance footage from the night in question by Monday. (PageSix)

Kevin Spacey caught a lot of people by surprise Monday -- showing his face at a pretrial hearing in his groping case. The disgraced actor is in a Massachusetts courthouse right now facing off with a judge in a pretrial hearing, which pertains to evidence his legal team has been trying to obtain from the prosecution team -- namely, cell phone data from the alleged victim. Spacey's attorney gripes that the prosecution had access to the alleged victim's phone in late 2017 for about two weeks and did not disclose that fact to the defense until very recently ... which Spacey's lawyer is pissed over. He believes there's exculpatory evidence on that phone that can help prove Spacey's innocence, and that the prosecution was purposely hiding it. Even crazier ... Spacey's attorney claims that messages were deleted from the phone that made reference to the alleged victim's "frat boy" tendencies, and he was never made aware of that until now. He also says a lot of messages and screenshots on the guy's phone have been "cleansed" and deleted that could hurt their case. Long story short ... he's outraged. KS has been a no-show for the majority of hearings in this case, so he surprised everyone by showing up suited and booted Monday morning. The last time he was in court was January, when he was arraigned in the case . . . in which he pled not guilty. He popped up in L.A. a couple months later. (TMZ)

A former employee of R. Kelly told a grand jury the singer regularly recorded tapes of his sexual encounters with underage girls and kept them as trophies ... and they're now believed to be in the hands of the feds. Sources directly connected to the case tell TMZ ... the ex-employee testified in front of a federal grand jury in the Northern District of Illinois Thursday and claims to have been in possession of multiple tapes in which the singer engages in sex acts with minors. We're told the former employee told grand jurors R. Kelly paid a large sum of cash to the employee and in return, the employee handed a tape over to the singer. We're told somehow the tape in question ended up in the hands of Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx. Our sources say the ex-employee testified they gave the feds several other child sex tapes featuring Kelly. We're told the former employee said R. Kelly's crew knew full well Kelly had a penchant for having sex with underage girls, but rather than blow the whistle on him, they actually helped the singer procure young girls. R. Kelly's attorney, Steve Greenberg, tells TMZ, "This seems to be the same claims that were made in the state case. We will address them in court." A spokesperson for the U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois declined to comment. As we've told you ... the federal grand jury in IL has heard testimony from alleged victims who say the singer and his camp transported them across state lines for sex when they were underage. There are also 2 other federal probes into Kelly in New York's Eastern and Southern Districts, and of course ... he's still facing multiple counts of sex abuse and sexual assault in Cook County.
