Michelle Obama bared enough for pretty much everyone in Tuscany to notice.

The former First Lady was out and about in a super revealing top -- if shoulders are your thing.  

Barack wore a button-down shirt casually with sleeves rolled up as he walked next to Michelle.

The Obamas are splitting their time chilling and writing memoirs ... for which they're getting paid a total of around $65 million.

Nice work if you can get it.

Judge to Snoop, Dre, Suge You're Off the Hook Ain't No Case Here

5/22/2017 2:38 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The guys suing Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Suge Knight and other rappers behind "Ain't No Fun (If The Homies Can't Have None)" are 24 years too late.

A California court dismissed the lawsuit brought by 2 L.A. rappers who claimed Snoop and co. stole the hook to 'Ain't No Fun' way back in the early '90s.

According to court docs, these fellas had 3 years to file a lawsuit ... 3 years from 1993.

We broke the story ... the 2 rappers sued Snoop and his Death Row Records crew last year for using their original hook to the rap hit without living up to their end of the alleged bargain ... getting the dudes a record deal and promoting their careers.

The rappers tried claiming the 3 year period reset every time the song was played ... but a judge wasn't buying what they were selling.

EXCLUSIVE

"Shahs of Sunset" star Golnesa 'GG' Gharachedaghi is saying deuces to her marriage... she's filing for divorce just 2 months after tying the knot.

GG and hubby Shalom Yeroushalmi have irreconcilable differences. They got married January 25 and she lists March 27 as the date of separation.

Friends were worried GG was rushing to the altar ... clearly they were right.

GG also wants the court to block Shalom from getting spousal support. They have no kids and such a short marriage usually means all involved won't put up a fight.

Exclusive Details

Celine Dion's dressing room at the Billboard Music Awards was virtually a revolving door of star power ... celebs simply couldn't get enough.

Sources close to the award show tell TMZ Celine had MANY famous visitors throughout Sunday night's BBMAs -- and some couldn't even snag a little face time with the Queen.

We're told artists like Drake, Desiigner, Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani, and Vanessa Hudgens all stopped by to pay their respects to Celine, but mostly to gush about how much they loved her. Vanessa even shed tears over her performance, and Drizzy suggested getting her tatted on his ribs.

The one celeb left out was Jason Derulo. We're told he waited in her dressing room for 45 minutes while Celine was doing press, and passed the time chatting with her son, Rene Charles. Unfortunately, he never got to see her.

Here's hoping his heart will go on.

Charlie Sheen Excited, Humbled by Spike in HIV Tests 'Great to Be of Service'

5/22/2017 10:54 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Charlie Sheen's not willing to take all the credit, but understands his HIV diagnosis likely played a huge part in boosting sales of home HIV test kits.

Researchers are calling it the "Sheen Effect," and Charlie was fully aware of the numbers when we saw him Monday morning at a Malibu gas station. By some counts, HIV test sales jumped up to 95% immediately after his 2015 announcement -- and remained as high as 60% up to a month later.

Charlie's take -- "It's exciting, and it's great to be of service at that level." He also explained how his life has not only changed, but has "been elevated in a lot of ways."

We've gotten a lot of wild Charlie clips over the years -- you're familiar -- but this is a remarkably different side.

Michael Jackson Estate Hey, Lifetime & Netflix ... Make Your Movies, Just No MJ Tunes

5/22/2017 9:49 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The new Lifetime and Netflix movies about Michael Jackson and his pet monkey, Bubbles, won't feature any of MJ's music if they know what's good for them.

Sources close to Michael Jackson's estate tell TMZ the new flicks, 'Searching for Neverland' and the recently announced animated feature, "Bubbles," are not authorized -- therefore, they're not allowed to use ANY of Michael's materials ... especially his music.

We're told MJ's estate is holding off on legal action for now, but if they hear anything like, oh let's say "Billie Jean," "Thriller," "Beat It," "Rock with You," "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough" or any of his hits ... they'll round up the lawyers.

The reason they're not heading to court now? The estate reps haven't seen the movies. 'Searching for Neverland' drops next week, though, so things could change by Monday.

Here's the real question ... can a movie about Michael Jackson even exist without his music, his videos or his pictures? We think not. Soooo, good luck with that, guys.
