Six months after legally tying the knot, the supermodel and German rock musician have touched down in Italy for a second, larger wedding celebration with their loved ones. On Friday, the bride and groom kicked off the festivities by taking a ride around the island of Capri on one of the world's most historic luxury yachts, the Christina O. Once chartered by Princess Grace Kelly and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis for their own wedding receptions, it's obvious Heidi and Tom have picked the perfect location to properly seal the deal on their love story. A source tells E! News that the couple's family and friends arrived on a smaller boat before boarding the 325-foot yacht this afternoon. Klum, 46, looked positively glowing in a white lace gown and matching heels, as the 29-year-old Tokio Hotel bandmate paired white trousers with a dark green blazer and light blue button up. Of the romantic outing, our insider adds, "The girls were in bikinis and a lot of guys were shirtless. Everyone has been spending time swimming in the ocean, going in the hot tub on the deck and partying on the yacht with food and drinks." "Heidi and Tom look very relaxed and happy before their wedding," the onlooker shares. "They have lots of friends around but are never too far from each other. When they come together they always hug and kiss passionately." Over the past week, the former Project Runway host has documented her and Tom's many European adventures with their nearest and dearest. Appropriately decked out in bridal white from head to toe, Heidi has enjoyed taking limoncello shots with her hubby's twin brother, touring the city and relaxing by the water. This marks Klum's third marriage. She was previously married to stylist Ric Pipino from 1997 to 2002 and to singer Seal from 2005 to 2014.

Chris Martin and Dakota Johnson Are Still Consciously Coupling Amid Split Rumors. The adventure of a lifetime continues for Chris Martin and Dakota Johnson. Despite rumors that the private duo had split in April, E! can confirm the Coldplay rocker, 42, and Fifty Shades of Grey alum, 29, are most certainly a couple. Revealed a source, "They're planning to spend more time together later this summer." After all, Johnson has a jam-packed schedule as is. Earlier this week, she attended the wrap party for her upcoming film, Covers, with Martin as her plus-one. She celebrated the premiere of another project, The Peanut Butter Falcon. More recently, they have kept a low profile, last seen together in public in late April. At the same time, a source told E! their yearlong romance was getting serious. So much so that "an engagement could definitely be in the cards," mused the insider. After all, they have forever inked on their arms -- and perhaps their hearts. In 2018, it was revealed Johnson and Martin got matching infinity sign tattoos in similar locations. And it seems just about everyone approves of their relationship, her parents Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson. "Chris loves her parents and has them over for beach time and parties," explained a source. "Everyone gets along very well." Yes, that includes his ex- Gwyneth Paltrow and their kids Apple Martin, 15, and Moses Martin, 13, too. "Gwyneth thinks she is lovely," a source previously shared. "She gets on very well with her and is happy for Chris. They've spent a good amount of time together and have a very nice friendship." And we certainly love a thoroughly modern family! Us Weekly was the first to report on Martin and Johnson's reconciliation. (Eonline)

The Hills' Brody Jenner and Wife Kaitlynn Carter Break Up. Brody Jenner and Kaitlynn Carter are going their separate ways. A source confirms the split to E! News, saying that Kaitlynn has already moved out of their Malibu, Calif. home. The former couple, who documented the highs and lows of married life on the latest season of The Hills: New Beginnings, got married in Indonesia last June. A separate insider also reveals that despite exchanging vows in a lavish ceremony, Brody and Kaitlynn were actually never legally married. Reps for the celebrities also confirmed the breakup in a statement to E! News, which read, "Brody Jenner & Kaitlynn Carter have decided to amicably separate. They love and respect one another, and know that this is the best decision for their relationship moving forward." It's possible Jenner is already celebrating his newfound single life. Prior to news of their separation, the television personality documented a night out on the town with his buddies in Los Angeles. In one photo shared by a friend, Brody is not wearing his wedding ring. Tension between Brody, 35, and Kaitlynn, 30, reached an all-time high on the MTV reality TV series when the 2018 Woolsey Fire in Southern California threatened to burn their house. At the time, Brody refused to evacuate as Kaitlynn sought refuge with relatives. Cameras also followed the stars as Kaitlynn confronted her now-ex over his claim that they were in an "open relationship," as well as Brody's reluctance to start a family of their own. "While I don't have kids," Brody explained in a confessional during the premiere episode, "I'm gonna pretty much do what I wanna do and live for myself, as opposed to live for another human being. I think that's why she wants kids, she wants me to change in that way." During a separate argument, Brody called Kaitlynn a "psychopath" and "nightmare" after she shared her concern over him coming home in the middle of the night. Brody and Kaitlynn got engaged in 2016 after two years of dating. They celebrated their engagement in Bali with his mother, actress Linda Thompson and ex of Caitlyn Jenner, and their closest friends. "I couldn't be more in love with this woman and I can't wait to spend the rest of my life with her," the reality TV star and musician said on Instagram at the time. The exes last posted about each other on social media at the time of their 1-year wedding anniversary, with Brody sharing on Instagram, "One year ago today I married the love of my life and best friend. Cheers to us my love." TMZ was first to report the news. (Eonline)

The "I Want Candy" singer, 31, split from girlfriend Lina Valentina this week, a source told Page Six on Saturday. Valentina moved out of their joint home on Friday. "Lina and I have decided to go our separate ways," Carter told us on Saturday. "I was really hoping this would be the one that lasted forever. We had even talked about having kids, but we couldn't seem to get past our differences and the relationship eventually turned unhealthy. I've been through so much the past few years and am trying to learn from my mistakes. "I don't have any regrets being with Lina, and I definitely learned a lot about myself. I think this decision was the mature thing to do. I'm going to keep focusing on my music, my tour and my fans. Hopefully my soulmate is out there somewhere and I'll meet her soon," he continued. The couple began dating in 2018 and announced on social media in November that they were expecting a child. Carter revealed in December that they were not anticipating a baby after all. Carter first hinted at the split via Twitter. (PageSix)

How Milo Ventimiglia Finally Impressed His Parents With His Emmy Nod... or Did He? Third time's a charm! Milo Ventimiglia's parents will finally accompany him to the Emmys as he competes for his third nomination for This Is Us, but it did take some persuasion. The 42-year-old star appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Thursday to promote his role in the new film The Art of Racing in the Rain and brought along his parents, Carol Ventimiglia and Peter Ventimiglia, to watch him at the talk show taping. There, he recalled an awkward incident. Milo has been nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor In A Drama Series for his role as Jack Pearson on This Is Us three times, starting In 2017, which marked his first-ever Emmy nomination. A month after the nods were revealed that year, Milo said on Jimmy Kimmel Live! that while hundreds of people reached out to congratulate him via text, voicemail and email, his father posted that day on Instagram a photo of French Fries in honor of National French Fry Day. "Then he caught hell about posting about National French Fry Day," Milo said on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Friday. "It came a little late. It's priority. French fries, I get it." "The first time I got nominated, I said, 'Hey guys, I'd love you to come to the Emmys with me," Milo continued. "And my mom was like, 'No, no, no, I don't want to be in the big crowd.' And my dad said he's holding out for the Oscars. And I was like, 'OK,'" Milo said. "Second year, I was like, 'Hey guys, so do you want to go the Emmys with me this year? My mom was like, 'Oh, no, no, no, it's fine, Sweetheart, you go.' And my dad is like, 'I'm holding out for the Oscars.' And I was like, 'Dad, these are like the Oscars for TV.'" Milo continued, "But then, third year, the nomination happens, Mom and Dad, of course, are like one of the first phone calls you make and I pick up the phone and I'm like, 'Hey guys,' and I was so ready to be like, 'I'd really, really like it if you came to the Emmys with me this year.' Before I even got that out, both of them are like, 'Oh, we're going. We're going.'" When Kimmel asked Carol and Pete what changed their minds, they said, "You." "You embarrassed us," Milo's dad said. "Oh, so you're coming reluctantly," Kimmel joked. The Art of Racing in the Rain also stars Kevin Costner and Amanda Seyfried and is set for release on Friday, Aug. 9. (Eonline)

Felicity Huffman's Co-Star Angela Bassett Had No Advice to Give Her Amid College Scandal. Awkward! Angela Bassett stars in the Cindy Chupack comedy Otherhood, alongside Patricia Arquette and Felicity Huffman. The film centers on three mothers who travel to New York City to reconnect with their adult sons. While the film has just hit Netflix, Huffman has been making headlines as of late for a different reason -- her involvement in the college admissions scandal that broke in March. In May, the actress pleaded guilty to one charge of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud in a plea agreement. "I am pleading guilty to the charge brought against me by the United States Attorney's Office. I am in full acceptance of my guilt, and with deep regret and shame over what I have done, I accept full responsibility for my actions and will accept the consequences that stem from those actions," Felicity said in a statement issued at the time of her plea. "I am ashamed of the pain I have caused my daughter, my family, my friends, my colleagues and the educational community. I want to apologize to them and, especially, I want to apologize to the students who work hard every day to get into college, and to their parents who make tremendous sacrifices to support their children and do so honestly." She continued, "My daughter knew absolutely nothing about my actions, and in my misguided and profoundly wrong way, I have betrayed her. This transgression toward her and the public I will carry for the rest of my life. My desire to help my daughter is no excuse to break the law or engage in dishonesty." Asked by a fan caller if she gave Huffman any advice during the scandal -- a question that spurred a laugh out of the star -- Basset said on Watch What Happens Live Thursday night, "Absolutely not." The actress added she had "no advice" to give. "None whatsoever." "You couldn't fall back on any of your research for when this happened to you," Cohen said sarcastically. "No example," she responded. "No example." (Eonline)

Camila Cabello Slams Body Shamers in Heated Instagram Post. Body shamers, be gone! Camila Cabello isn't feeding into the "bulls--t" any longer. The "Senorita" singer took to Instagram Stories on Saturday to vent her frustrations with people trying to body shame her. The 22-year-old star explains that she was trying celebrate the second-anniversary of her hit-maker "Havana" with a photo, but discovered a troubling headline that commented negatively on her body. "I haven't gone on social media AT ALL with the conscious intention of avoiding things that hurt my feelings," she began her lengthy post. "my eyes accidentally ran over a head line of people "body shaming me."" She said that at first, she felt "super insecure." "But then I was like... of course there are bad pictures, of course there are bad angles, my body's not made of f--king rock," she wrote. "But the saddest part of young girls growing up in an airbrushed world is they're seeking a perfection that's not real." For the "Never Be the Same" singer, she feels that young women are "constantly seeing" a fake reality. "They're constantly seeing photoshopped, edited pictures and thinking that's reality and everyone's eyes get used to seeing airbrushed skin, and suddenly they think THAT'S norm.," she shared. "It isn't. It's fake. AND FAKE IS BECOMING THE NEW REAL." The 22-year-old star left fans with an empowering message: "Girls, cellulite is normal. fat is normal. It's beautiful and natural." Preach, girl! Just a few weeks ago, the Miami native also opened up about her personal struggles with anxiety. For her, it's all about finding ways to cope with being "incredibly nervous" and "socially anxious." She explained she has two sides to her, one that forces her to go outside of her comfort zone and the other that wants to stay in and do nothing. "There's little Camila that is terrified of the unknown, is aware of all the ways everything can go wrong, (actually can picture them vividly lol), and thinks it's safer to stay home than to play ball," she said. Adding, "Then there's the other Camila. And she knows what she wants out of life, is aware of how little time I have to let little Camila run the show while time passes by, and grabs young me by the hand and forces her out the door saying "Let's go. You'll survive, and I'm not gonna miss out on this. Let's go."" All in all, it's refreshing to see an A-lister keep it real on social media. (Eonline)

Pink Just Epically Trolled the Mom Shamers Coming After Jessica Simpson. Hair's the deal: We'd dye for a friend like Pink. After mom shamers came after Jessica Simpson for letting her daughter Maxwell Drew Johnson, 7, color her hair pink, the singer addressed the mane issue with some help from her own daughter Willow Hart, 8. "I heard people were bummed on Jessica Simpson for letting her seven year old get her hair colored," the singer captioned a shot of her dying Willow's hair blue. "So we thought we'd share what we did yesterday. #bluehairdontcare#getyourownkids#parentpoliceareactuallyjustlonelysadpeople #illdyeyourhairtoo" As she often does, Pink disabled comments on her post so the trolls could not troll her trolling. Earlier this week, Simpson shared a picture of Maxi's new locks on her Instagram. "Inspired by The Descendants," she wrote. "#901girl #MAXIDREW." But the adorable shot of her oldest looking all grown up seemed to only bring it criticism. "So sad to see a child this young getting her hair dyed," commented one user. "She looked so much prettier with her natural golden locks. She still should be a child in every sense. That time is short." Chimed in another, "So young its a shame." Maxi, did, however, gain support from renowned celebrity colorist Ritz Hazan. "I saw this coming after our last color session she was loving it!" she weighed in. "Looks amazing!" The official account for the Disney Descendants franchise also applauded the new 'do, writing, "Looking good!" As for Pink, she's no stranger to what she calls social media's "parenting police." In early July, she came under fire for letting her kids Willow and Jameson Hart, 2, run through the Holocaust Memorial while on a family vacation in Berlin, Germany. Later addressing the controversy -- "?his place is not definitely a hide and seek place, dear Pink," one Instagram user judged -- Pink clapped back and explained herself once and for all. "For all of the comments; these two children are in actuality Jewish, as am I and the entirety of my mother's family," she wrote. "The very person who constructed this believed in children being children, and to me this is a celebration of life after death. Please keep your hatred and judgment to yourselves." In other words, let's cut out the negativity. (Eonline)

Dog the Bounty Hunter Fires Back After Beth Chapman's Personal Items Are Stolen From His Store. Dog the Bounty Hunter is distraught. Early Friday morning, the TV personality took to twitter to slam bunglers who robbed and vandalized his Edgewater, Colorado store. "The Bible says it is an unforgivable sin to steal from the dead," Chapman wrote. "LARGE CASH REWARD FOR ANY INFORMATION FOR WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS !!!" The Jefferson County Dispatch confirmed to E! News that they were called to the shop Thursday evening due to a break in. According to reports, the thieves not only took merchandise, but they also stole personal items that belonged to his late wife Beth Chapman, who died in June at age 51 following a battle with cancer. Earlier in July, he held a memorial for his love in Aurora, Colorado. "I cannot believe that she's gone," Dog, whose real name is Duane Chapman, said during an emotional speech. "This is not possible. I want to wake up from a dream. In the '70s, I did 18 months in a Texas penitentiary, and I told God yesterday I'd do 5 years, 10 years day for day just to kiss her again." "She got sick. They told her she had cancer two years ago," he continued. "[They said], 'You can do chemo.' She tried it. They said, 'You're going to have to sit home though while Dog films the show.' The show did not kill her, but she died for it. She said, 'Do you think I am going to let you go out there by yourself and film this TV show? You're out of your mind.' I said, 'Honey, you might have to do chemo and stuff.' She goes, 'All it will do is keep me alive six months longer, and I am not going to do that because I want to be by your side.'" Beth passed away on June 26 after being placed in a medically induced coma. "It's 5:32 in Hawaii, this is the time she would wake up to go hike Koko Head mountain. Only today, she hiked the stairway to heaven," Dog tweeted, confirming her passing. "We all love you, Beth. See you on the other side." Our thoughts continue to go out to the family during this tragic time. (Eonline)

Graham Sierota Has Autism and "Misunderstood" Interaction With Travis Barker's Daughter, Family Says. The family and bandmates of Echosmith drummer Graham Sierota wants the public to know he had no malicious intent in contacting Travis Barker's 13-year-old daughter on social media. Sierota, 20, found himself in hot water earlier this week when Alabama Luella Barker claimed she had received messages from the musician on Instagram, including one where he called her "beautiful" and invited her to his home for a party. Alabama posted images of their alleged correspondence on social media, which prompted her famous father to speak out on the matter. The Blink 182 rocker publicly slammed the "predatory behavior," which Sierota ultimately apologized for. Now in a new statement to E! News, those closest to Sierota have shared that he lives with Autism Spectrum Disorder and has "difficulty understanding social cues." "We have never publicly addressed this in the past," the statement read, "but given the events of the last few days, we feel compelled to speak out now to offer some additional context and insight into the unfortunate misunderstandings that occurred and clear up the deeply hurtful mischaracterizations of Graham." Sierota's family went on to say that his "challenges" are a "truly beautiful and wonderful thing that makes Graham the amazing brother, son and friend that he is." "He sees the world as the happiest place," the statement continued, "where everyone is a potential friend, and he wants everyone to feel included. One very recent Christmas, we hosted a holiday party at our home, and had athletes, musicians, artists, and models show up, and we were very confused until they happily told us, 'Graham reached out on social media and invited us!' Anyone who has ever met Graham will agree, he is the friendliest and most kind-hearted, welcoming person in the world." In light of the incident with Alabama and the Barkers, Sierota's family said, "We understand that his interactions were misinterpreted and misunderstood in the confusing world of social media, and we are deeply sorry. Graham certainly never meant to make anyone feel uncomfortable." They then pledged to "continue to work with him to have the right tools and knowledge about social boundaries, and to better navigate and utilize social media while he takes a break from it. We hope anyone who's been affected, and in turn felt uncomfortable, can accept our deepest apologies." Best known for their 2013 song "Cool Kids," Echosmith is made up of siblings Sydney Sierota, Noah Sierota and Graham. Alabama has since acknowledged Sierota's apology, posting on her Instagram Stories, "He is very sorry about the situation and regretful. I forgive him and would like for this all to be over."

"Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta" star Joseline Hernandez is on the verge of getting arrested after she blatantly disregarded the child custody agreement she has with Stevie J by denying him the right to see their daughter. Stevie had a right to take custody of their 2-year-old daughter, Bonnie Bella from July 28 to August 11. Joseline was in Miami shooting "Marriage Boot Camp," so he traveled there on the 28 to pick up his daughter. According to court documents, obtained by TMZ, instead of turning Bonnie Bella over, Joseline took the child and flew to L.A. After Stevie's attorney, Adamma McKinnon ran to court, the judge in the custody case issued an arrest warrant Thursday, ordering Joseline to turn the baby over STAT or she would be taken into custody. We've learned Stevie J flew to L.A. late Friday and the stage is now set for a showdown. The judge made it clear ... if Joseline doesn't turn the child over, the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. is ordered to immediately arrest her. And, there's more ... because Joseline violated the custody agreement -- which gave her physical custody and Stevie J visitation -- the judge switched it around and now Stevie has sole physical custody of Bonnie Bella ... until August 15 when they're back in Fulton County court. We'll let you know if Joseline complies, or if she's arrested. UPDATE: Plot twist! Stevie and his attorney tell us Joseline has flown back to Miami with Bonnie. Stevie is in L.A., but says one of his adult children who lives in South Florida is going to pick up Bonnie. At least ... that's the plan. We'll see if Joseline cooperates. (TMZ)

Christine Quinn from the hit Netflix show "Selling Sunset" had a rude homecoming from a trip abroad -- someone got into her home and made off with six-figures worth of pricey jewelry. Sources close to the situation tell TMZ ... Christine returned to her Bev Hills pad a few days ago and noticed her entire jewelry collection -- including expensive watches -- had been swiped from her safe. We're told cops have little to go on, but here's what Christine knows for sure -- the suspect made off with more than $120,000 worth of her stuff!!! We're also told the only person who was supposed to have access to Christine's crib was the housekeeper, and there was no sign of forced entry. LAPD's now investigating, but so far, there are no suspects. Christine's bummer news comes on the heels of some great news for one of her "Selling Sunset" costars. As we told you ... Heather Rae Young made headlines when she was seen locking lips with "Flip or Flop" host Tarek El Moussa. Ya take the good, ya take the bad ... (TMZ)

Cardi B's worldwide stardom will put her in a precarious position when she sits for a deposition next week -- and that's why she wants the judge to keep the whole matter confidential. Cardi is in a legal dogfight with her former manger -- he sued her, then she sued him -- and in new legal docs, obtained by TMZ, her attorneys say her monumental achievement as a world-renowned rapper makes her vulnerable to a feeding frenzy from both the public and the media. Her team says if the video of her deposition, as well as the transcripts, get out to the public, it could harm her case ... and expose private details about her life and finances. Additionally, they've got serious Internet meme concerns. As they put it in docs, if the material gets out "it is highly likely that any such video will be reproduced and edited (and possibly manipulated) into out-of-context video clips and GIFs of her testimony." As we first reported ... Cardi's ex-manager, Shaft, claims he transformed her from an Instagram wannabe to a global celebrity. Shaft sued Cardi for $10 million in April 2018 ... and then she countersued him for $15 million. One of Shaft's more significant claims -- he says his contacts and personal team of writers and producers are responsible for her first massive hit, "Bodak Yellow." The judge hasn't ruled on Cardi's request for privacy, but her deposition is scheduled to go down in the second week of August. (TMZ)

Remy Ma Is Officially Off Parole: "She Is So Excited." UPDATED: Remy Ma's parole is officially over. The Department of Corrections and Community Supervision has confirmed to E! News that the rapper's community supervision completion date was Aug. 1. "She is officially off post-release supervision, which is similar to parole but it's stricter because it's for violent offenders," her attorney, Dawn Florio, told E! News on Thursday. "She completed five years perfectly without ever missing a curfew or having a dirty urine. Typically, they end it early for good behavior, but I think they didn't because she's a rapper and they always want to make a point with celebrities. She got her ankle monitor off this afternoon. No more curfew or travel restrictions. She is so excited to be able to travel with her family freely again." The artist celebrated the big news by posting a video of herself riding in a convertible with Fat Joe and listening to Anita Baker's "You Bring Me Joy" on Instagram. "Remy off parole, baby!" he said. In addition, he said that Remy's husband Papoose and their "Golden Child" Reminisce Mackenzie Mackie were right behind them and that they were all going out to eat. Remy also said a quick hello to her followers -- many of whom expressed their excitement over the news on social media, as well. Furthermore, she quipped that she was taking all meetings after 8:00 p.m. because she didn't know "how the air feels outside after that time." Papoose also shared a video of everyone singing and celebrating on a boat. Remy Ma is having another brush with the law. The rapper was arrested on Wednesday afternoon for an alleged assault that occurred on April 16 at around 9:30 p.m. NYPD confirmed to E! News that "Remy Ma aka Reminisce Smith was arrested for assault at Irving Plaza against 29-year-old female Brittney Taylor." Taylor is a cast member on the VH1 show Love and Hip Hop: New York. The police department explained to E! News why Ma's arrest happened today even though the alleged assault took place weeks ago. NYPD explained Taylor "was embarrassed to report it at the time" but she ultimately "ended up filing April 17." NYPD continued, "Remy surrendered to police at the 13 Pct today. She was placed into custody at 12:30pm. She is still in custody. Remy was charged with Assault." According to the police, Taylor "sustained bruising to her right eye. The victim was treated at Mount Sinai for her injuries." TMZ, who first broke the story, reports that Taylor alleges Remy Ma punched her during the Pretty Lou Benefit Concert on the 16th. Taylor's attorney Sanford Rubenstein gave a statement to E! News on behalf of his client and condemned the alleged assault. "This arrest demonstrates how serious this matter is, it is real life and not reality TV entertainment. The victim Brittney Taylor has confidence in our system of justice and will continue to fully cooperate with the authorities," Rubenstein wrote in his statement. The 38-year-old will soon be arraigned for the case. The Manhattan District Attorney's office told E! News, "She is awaiting arraignment for this case. We can't provide guidance on her prior case or parole until she is arraigned. She will likely be arraigned this afternoon." Remy Ma's parole ends August 1. In March 2008, Ma was convicted of intentional assault and she was later sentenced to eight years in prison after shooting a woman named Makeda Barnes-Joseph. Ma and Barnes-Joseph were allegedly pushing and pulling on the rapper's purse because she believed Barnes-Joseph stole $3,000 from her and Ma's gun went off during the argument. Ma was released in 2014 after serving six years in prison. The "All the Way Up" rapper and her husband Papoose welcomed their first child together, a daughter named Reminisce Mackenzie. She also has an 18-year-old son named Jayson and Papoose has three kids from a previous relationship. E! News has reached out to Remy Ma's rep. (Eonline)

LL Cool J has a lot of sympathy for A$AP Rocky, but says if he's convicted in Swedish court of assault, he can't go on the lam. LL was at LAX Friday and made one point clear ... if he were in A$AP's shoes and got a guilty verdict, he would not just go back to Sweden and face the music ... rather, he'd "negotiate." We're reading between the lines, but it seems he's saying he'd do a little horse trading ... I'll come back, but you can't throw the book at me. As for never going back, LL thinks that's a bad idea. Even if Rocky couldn't be extradited from the U.S., his travel would be severely restricted because other countries might in fact hook him up and send him back to Sweden. As we reported, it's looking likely that A$AP will be found not guilty, because prosecutors failed to prove A$AP struck the alleged victim with a bottle. A$AP returned to L.A. Friday at around midnight, and he couldn't be happier. (TMZ)

The fatal crash that killed Grant Thompson -- creator of YouTube's popular "King of Random" series -- was all caught on camera ... and though we're told it'll never see the light of day, it's helped investigators determine exactly what went wrong. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... authorities have reviewed footage from a camera mounted on Grant's paramotor, and it appears a change in the updraft caused the parachute to malfunction. It's unclear if the parachute twisted ... but we're told Grant died on impact, less than 4 seconds after the problem surfaced. The video makes it apparent ... Thompson immediately knew something was wrong but couldn't recover because he lost altitude in rapid fashion. By the time he deployed his reserve parachute, it was just too late. We're told the reserve chute did in fact deploy, but not in time. We're told authorities are adamant the video will never be released to the public ... it would be gratuitous, gruesome and painful for his family. TMZ broke the story ... Grant died after a paramotoring accident in Utah. The Washington County Sheriff's Office had said a report came in Monday of an overdue paraglider who had gone off the radar near the Sand Hollow State Park. His coordinates were pulled from GPS data and a helicopter located his body. As we first reported ... Grant had taken up the sport only 5 months ago and called it his new obsession. He was only 38.
