The Princess Diana Beanie Babies market's alive and flourishing ... 'cause 2 of them just sold for a whopping $12,000 each. Our sources say, 2 of the Princess Di crystal-encrusted Beanie Babies edition were up for sale at Nordstrom's in NYC. We're told 2 of Nordie's VIP clients quickly snatched them up. The sale comes just a week after we reported Kylie Jenner also dropped a cool $12k for a similar Beanie Baby. TMZ broke the story ... Kylie saw the super-rare Ireland Beanie Baby at Justin and Hailey Bieber's Paddle 8 auction. Kylie's new bear and the Princess Di bears are the work of Los Angeles-based artist Dan Life. We're told the Princess Diana Beanie Babies sold at Nordstrom's within 24 hours of TMZ posting Kylie's story. Suffice it to say ... the Beanie Babies craze is NOT dead. At least not when it comes to Dan's work. For those bummed out on missing out on Nordstrom's special sale shouldn't fret ... Dan's selling 2 more of the Princess Di beanie babies to any buyer who contacts him through his website. Got Venmo? Anyway ... pretty cool time to remind you of the great work done by the Princess Diana Beanie Babies craze of the 90s. They retailed for around $7 ... and proceeds went to the Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fund. Production of the Diana Beanie Babies ended in 1999 ... but when it was all said and done, nearly $22m was raised for Diana's memorial fund. The power of Beanie Babies is no joke. (TMZ)

Harry Styles Leaves $2,020 Tip After Dinner with Adele and James Corden on Anguilla Vacation. The three British stars have recently been seen spending time together on the Caribbean beaches. Harry Styles made sure one server's new year got off to a very plentiful start! Shortly after the "Adore You" singer, 25, was spotted on vacation in Anguilla with longtime pal James Corden and Adele, an employee at a local restaurant shared that Styles left a $2,020 tip on a $472.50 bill after picking up the check on Saturday night. "Big ups to @harrystyles for taking care of Mr Big Life!" the employee wrote on Instagram, alongside a photo of the bill, which also featured a handwritten note from Styles, saying, "Happy new year!" "@donniewahlberg you got the second worldwide response from Harry Styles all the way from St Thomas Virgin Islands with @j_corden and @adele," the employee continued, referring to the equally generous tip the Blue Bloods star recently left after dining at an IHOP in Illinois. Having a bit of fun with the stars, the employee went on to share several photos of Styles and Corden. "Great night with great peeps @j_corden @harrystyles! Salud!" the employee wrote alongside one group photo, while captioning another silly picture, "@harrystyles being the best person he can ever be... @j_corden photobombing!??? For real?" The three British stars were first spotted enjoying their time together over the weekend. In photos posted on Twitter Saturday, Adele, 31, was seen smiling as she ran across the shore into the ocean while wearing a navy patterned dress. Styles' sighting with Adele prompted fans to wonder if a collaboration between the two artists could be in the works, as the former One Direction member has spoken warmly of the songstress in the past. Styles previously shared in a 2017 BBC radio interview that Adele gave him a copy of her album 21 when he reached the milestone age, adding that she told him, "I did some pretty cool stuff when I was 21, good luck," reported NME. "I think she leads by example, she's the biggest, she's amazing, she's the best so she should be the biggest. The thing with her is she's a different thing, she's just good at it, I like how she does everything, it looks very nice," he added. Multiple sources recently told PEOPLE that Adele is ready to release new songs sooner than later. "She is definitely getting ready both mentally and physically to promote new music. It seems it will happen later this year," said a source close to the artist. "She talks about last year as a very difficult year, and she's said in the past that creating new music is almost like therapy. You can tell that she is ready to share with her fans." On her previous albums 19, 21, and 25, the mom of one poured her heart into her art, and a music industry insider said Adele's upcoming work will be just as personal. "She is so busy, but her life is better-rounded than it was before," added the industry insider. "She is very fulfilled being an artist. New music is still a big deal for her, and she feels alive and happy." (People)

Win or lose, Alex Rodriguez is rooting for Jennifer Lopez. The retired baseball player, 44, penned a sweet note to Lopez, 50, after she lost the award for best supporting actress in a motion picture for her role in Hustlers during the 2020 Golden Globes on Sunday. Alongside a photo of his fiancee on the red carpet at the ceremony, he wrote on Instagram, "Jen, it doesn't take a trophy, medal, or plaque to identify a true champion." "To millions of young women who have watched you and have been inspired and empowered to do amazing things in their lives, you are a champion," he shared. "For countless musicians, dancers, actresses, and performers who have seen and emulate your passion, drive and work ethic to find their own success, you are a champion." Rodriguez -- who also accompanied Lopez to the award show -- continued, "To your children, your family, your coaches, your staff, and your extended family, you are a champion." "To everyone whose lives you enrich daily, you are a champion. And don't you ever forget it," he concluded along with three heart emojis. Touched by the gesture, Lopez responded in the comments, "You are my everything." The multi-hyphenate performer lost the Golden Globe for best supporting actress in a motion picture to Laura Dern, who had also beat out nominees Kathy Bates, Annette Bening, and Margot Robbie for the honor. Before the ceremony, Lopez spoke about all the training she did to perfect her dancing in Hustlers, in which she played a stripper who becomes a con artist. After all that hard work, she wanted to make sure the audience saw it was really her doing the impressive moves. "I was like, 'Please get a close up of my face, even if I look like a bat hanging down, please make sure they know it was me so they didn't think it was a stunt double.' It was hard," Lopez told Ryan Seacrest during the E! red carpet pre-show. "The one great benefit is having a pole in our master bedroom for six months," Rodriguez said. Rodriguez also shared several selfies of himself and Lopez at the ceremony. In the caption of one photo taken outside of the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles, the former athlete wrote, "Head of @jlo security, reporting for red carpet duty! @goldenglobes." The couple dated for two years before they got engaged in March. (People)

Tom Hanks' entire family was on hand at the 2020 Golden Globes to support the "A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood" star. Hanks' wife, Rita Wilson, as well as all of his children -- Colin, Truman, Chet and Elizabeth -- attended the show Sunday night because the 63-year-old old actor is being presented with the coveted Cecil B. DeMille Award. Chet, 29, was in the public eye as he struggled with drug addiction for years. He previously said the birth of his daughter was the ultimate catalyst to getting clean and sober. Chet, who previously went by the moniker Chet Haze, welcomed daughter Michaiah in April 2016. "There's a part of you that knows that you need to make a change but you can't really shut that door on your life and just move on to a new chapter," he told "Entertainment Tonight" in 2018. "For me, it took something drastic happening, like becoming a father, for me to make that change." The earlier portion of the evening proved dramatic for Wilson, as she blasted her Golden Globes hair and makeup stylist for failing to arrive on time. "What you look like when your hair and makeup person for the @goldenglobes is one and a half hours late even though you booked him in September," she captioned the pic. "Will leave one hour to do hair and makeup." (Page Six)

Nathan Fillion Debuts Snake Back Tattoo: 'Maybe One Poor Choice' From Turks and Caicos Holiday. Many were quick to ask Nathan Fillion whether the snake design was real, with one of his Rookie costars noting that he hoped it was. New year, new ink? As Nathan Fillion's holiday vacation in Turks and Caicos came to a close, The Rookie star, 48, shared a photo of one very eye-raising souvenir he seemingly got during the trip: a back tattoo. "One hellova holiday. Good times on the beach (not pictured), fun times with my family (not pictured), and maybe one poor choice (above)," he wrote on Sunday, alongside a photograph that showed off a large tattoo of a snake across one of his shoulder blades. "This trip was one for the books. Now, I suppose we have to go back to work? Please correct me if I'm wrong. Please," the Suicide Squad actor playfully added. Almost immediately, the actor's comments section was flooded with questions about whether the tattoo was the real deal, with one of Fillion's costars noting that he hoped it wasn't temporary. "Is it bad that I think this is dope & want it to be real," wrote fellow Rookie star Titus Makin Jr. However, just because a celebrity debuts a back tattoo online doesn't mean it's permanent. In March 2019, Halle Berry sent the Internet into a frenzy when she posted a photo of her massive back tattoo, before admitting two months later that it was only temporary. During an appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden, Berry, 52, was asked about the topless photo, which showcased her perfectly toned back muscles as well as the elaborate body art: a curved vine that spanned from the nape of her neck to her waist with leaves branching all the way down her back. "Is this real and do you usually make eggs in sequins and no top," Corden asked, as Berry replied, "The egg? That is a real egg." She later clarified that the new ink was just something she was "trying out." "I am starting a new movie in a few months so I'm trying out different tattoos to see what will fit best for my character," she said, adding, "I'm discovering how long will they last, how much wear will I get out of one, so I know how much it's all going to cost."

All Mariah Carey wanted for 2020 was a massive place to celebrate a big year and ring in the new one ... and she got exactly that with a palace in the Dominican Republic. Mimi spent just a little over a week in the Juanillo Estates in the luxury community of Cap Cana. She was there with her BF, Bryan Tanaka, and her 8-year-old twin kids, Moroccan and Monroe. The estate's fit for an R&B queen -- 40,000-square-feet of interior space, its own private white-sand beach, 9 bedrooms, a 24-seat grand dining table, an expansive wraparound pool, and, not one, but TWO fully-equipped kitchens. Oh yeah, the pad's also fully staffed. #Baller. MC celebrated two huge 2019 milestones -- her Christmas classic, "All I Want for Christmas Is You," made her the first artist to ever hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in four separate decades. She also released a new music video for the track ... which has already eclipsed 32-million views. And, to ring in the New Year ... Mariah and the fam enjoyed a quarter-million-dollar fireworks show. Now that's getting lit. Anyone looking to rent out Mariah's spot better get ready to shell out a pretty penny ... it costs around $18k per night to stay at the $30 million estate. Talk about a high note!!! (TMZ)

Car Crashes into Lisa Vanderpump's Restaurant Pump. A driver crashed their luxury car into the front patio of Lisa Vanderpump's restaurant Pump in West Hollywood on Sunday afternoon. One person suffered minor injuries in the accident, whose cause remains unknown, a police spokesperson told E! News. Vanderpump's husband and partner, Ken Todd, told E! News a girl was slightly injured in the crash. Emergency units were called to the scene and scores of passersby rushed to take photos. One of them showed the front of a silver luxury sports car lodged through a broken glass barrier. Pump is located in between two major streets and was open at the time, as it serves brunch on weekends. "A Porsche Turbo slammed through Pump at the intersection of Santa Monica Boulevard and Robertson in West Hollywood just after 2 p.m. Sunday -- one girl slightly injured and taken to the hospital with cuts," Todd said. "And we are very lucky that everyone else was uninjured and safe while dining during Sunday brunch." Vanderpump and Todd own several restaurants, with SUR being their most famous one. Their workers and Pump's are featured on Bravo's Vanderpump Rules. The Hills star Spencer Pratt couldn't help but joke about the incident. (Eonline)

Nick Viall will still be tuning into Barry season 3. The former Bachelor had the perfect reaction after former rumored fling Rachel Bilson stepped out with Bill Hader at the 2020 Golden Globes on Sunday, January 5. "It makes it easier since I'm such a Barry fan," Viall, 39, commented on The Morning Toast's Instagram post of Bilson, 38, and Hader, 41, on Sunday. The former Hart of Dixie star and the Saturday Night Live alum, who was nominated for his role in Barry at the 77th annual Golden Globes, walked the red carpet hand in hand earlier on Sunday. Their red carpet debut came two months after they were spotted together in Los Angeles. The twosome fueled romance reports last month after they were seen at a Starbucks in Hader's hometown on December 21. Bilson's relationship with Viall, meanwhile, made headlines during the summer of 2019. After The OC alum appeared on his "Viall Files" podcast, fans caught the duo flirting with each other via Instagram. Both Bilson and Viall have claimed that their relationship is platonic in recent months. "We're just friends. We've always just been friends. He's a really nice guy," the actress told Us in December, noting that the twosome were "just messing around" with their social media remarks. She added at the time that Viall should consider being the Bachelor again. (After two seasons of The Bachelorette and a stint on Bachelor in Paradise, the reality TV personality was named the 21st Bachelor. While he proposed to Vanessa Grimaldi during the finale, they split in August 2017.) "He's very entertaining. I tease him about it, but I don't think he would ever do it," Bilson told Us. Viall, for his part, attended the 2020 Golden Globes with Bachelor Nation star Demi Burnett. The Natural Habits creator, who cohosted E!'s social media live stream, has previously denied that anything romantic is going on between him and Burnett, who split from fiancee Kristian Haggerty in October 2019. "I'm not dating Demi," Viall told Us in November. "I'm certainly hoping to settle down when the right person comes. [But] I'm not trying to put pressure on myself." (US Weekly)

It's finally officially over for Jason Garrett in Dallas ... the Cowboys have finally fired the head coach in a move EVERYONE saw coming from a mile away. There were rumblings about Garrett's termination for weeks -- especially after the Cowboys went 8-8 this season and failed to make the playoffs. And, even though the team was reportedly interviewing high profile candidates like Mike McCarthy and Marvin Lewis to take over, the team hadn't officially relieved Garrett of his duties ... until now. Moments ago, FOX Sports' Jay Glazer said the team had finally sacked Garrett ... clearing the way to make a hiring move. Garrett was 85-67 during his 10-year run with the team ... and only made the playoffs 3 times despite having some seriously talented players. Of course, a TON of people think this will open the door for Dallas to be successful once again ... ex-Dallas star Terrell Owens has said repeatedly Garrett was the biggest problem for the Cowboys. There are all sorts of conflicting reports about why Jerry Jones and the Cowboys waited so long to formally terminate Garrett ... there was speculation Jason was trying to get a front-office role with the team. Garrett and Jones go wayyyy back ... he won 2 Super Bowls with the team as Troy Aikman's backup QB back in the day. (TMZ)

Gus Williams -- a two-time All-Star for the Seattle SuperSonics -- is being sued by a man who claims the ex-NBA champ didn't pay him for a house ... and trashed the place to boot. The man behind the suit is Todd Mustin, who says back in 2017 ... he put his 5-bedroom, 5,000 square-foot Sherman Oaks, Calif. pad up for sale -- when things went awry. Mustin claims he sold the house to a woman named Megan Zucaro ... but when she only coughed up $1 million of the roughly $1.9 mil she agreed to pay for the place, Williams stepped in. Mustin says the 66-year-old -- who won an NBA title with the Sonics in the 1978-79 season -- agreed to take over the place and pay off the remaining $900K. The problem? Mustin says the former point guard NEVER paid a dime ... and claims the guy and his family trashed the crib in the meantime. Mustin claims Williams and his family left the place an absolute dump ... telling TMZ Sports they left feces in the toilets and trash all over. To be clear, Williams had every right to trash the place -- he did buy it after all -- but Mustin claims the disaster he left behind on the property proves the dude is a complete jerk. Now, Mustin claims Williams owes him $900K -- plus interest -- for never paying for the house after he agreed to take it off Zucaro's hands. Attempts to reach Williams for comment were unsuccessful. (TMZ)

Mama June and her boyfriend, Geno, are keeping their nomadic lifestyle alive and well -- 'cause they just got kicked out of one hotel ... and are on their way to another. Sources tell TMZ ... MJ has been renting a couple different rooms for herself, Geno and some friends at the Residence Inn Marriott in McDonough, GA since around Thanksgiving time -- and recently, her tab started running up to the $2,000 mark ... which went unattended. We're told on Saturday, the staff notified Mama June -- who's apparently been in and out, as we've seen her pop up elsewhere in the area -- it was time to pay up, but that she refused. Or rather, we're told she couldn't pay it off in full ... coming up shy a few hundred bucks. Our sources say Mama June and co. were told they had to scram ... and, apparently, announced they were heading to another joint down the street. We're also told the rooms were a mess, but have since been cleaned. Unclear if there was as much damage as there was at the FairBridge Inn & Suites, where we're told they recently crashed at ... allegedly leaving a room in ruins after a fight. Of course, this is just the latest chapter in Mama June's spiraling story since she first linked up with this guy, whom her family really, REALLY wants out of her life. Doesn't look like she's ditching him just yet though. Until next time, we suppose ... (TMZ)
