Elizabeth Smart Kidnapper Barzee Goes Wild 1st Night Out of Prison ... Cops Called

9/20/2018 9:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Elizabeth Smart's kidnapper who was just released spent her first night of freedom going off the rails ... so much so, cops were called ... TMZ has learned.

Wanda Barzee spent Wednesday night at a Salt Lake City hotel and, according to a guest staying in an adjacent room, Barzee went on a religious tirade. We're told she was wailing religious scripture at the top of her lungs.

The guest also says Barzee was loudly praising Joseph Smith, the founder of Mormonism. 

A law enforcement source tells us a call came in to dispatch from a guest at the hotel, but when officers tried to call the complainant back, no one responded. They did not send a unit to check it out.

We're told there was also a call to police for a media disturbance outside the hotel -- and officers did respond to that -- asking reporters to back away from the property.

Barzee was released from prison Wednesday after serving 15 years. 

Not long after Barzee's release, Elizabeth reacted on Instagram saying, "Without [a] doubt the past few weeks have been a rollercoaster of emotion ... May we all remain vigilant in watching over our families, friends, and community from anyone who would seek to hurt or take advantage."

Meghan Markle I Can Always Count on My Mom!!! Visits for Cookbook Launch

9/20/2018 9:36 AM PDT

Meghan Markle's mom came flying to her daughter's side for the Duchess of Sussex's first solo project this week, and the timing of her visit couldn't be more perfect.

Doria Ragland joined Meghan and Prince Harry Thursday at a London event to launch a new cookbook for a communal kitchen Meghan is supporting. She wrote the foreword for the book.

Recent reports say Meghan is feeling kinda lonely as a new member of the Royal Family -- so, a visit from Mom would probably help cure the blues. That's also why some outlets are speculating Doria might eventually move to London. 

Based on the way Meghan was looking at Doria before and during the event ... we're guessing she'd love to have mama bear close.

Interestingly, Princess Diana famously struggled with loneliness after marrying Prince Charles.

Sooo ... Doria to the rescue?

Machine Gun Kelly I Apologized to Em Long Ago But Now I'd Say 'F*** You!'

9/20/2018 7:29 AM PDT

Machine Gun Kelly says he apologized to Eminem's camp years ago for saying Em's daughter is hot, but now he's got no time for the "old man" -- oh, and he also insists he banged Halsey. Sorry, G-Eazy.

MGK went on "The Breakfast Club" Thursday and talked about calling Em's manager, Paul Rosenberg, in 2012 to say sorry for tweeting about Em's then-teenage daughter. He says he thought the issue was squashed, but adds there are still people at Interscope -- his and Em's distributor -- who pick sides ... even the ones assigned to promote his music. 

Fast forward to 2018 and we get "Kamikaze," "Rap Devil" and then "Killshot." MGK doubles down on his claim Eminem is old and irrelevant in hip-hop today. As for a possible sit-down between the two -- Kelly had only 2 words ... one of them starts with 'F.'

He also briefly addresses the fight he and his security got into in Atlanta with actor Gabriel "G-Rod" Rodriguez. Kelly refused to elaborate on why his fingers are bandaged.

Kelly eventually talks Halsey and says he "absolutely" hooked up with her after she split with G-Eazy earlier this year. She eventually got back together with G, but not before MGK fired off a diss track at her man ... and received one in return. 

Also for the record, MGK was swilling tequila during this interview.

Demi Lovato Wilmer Valderrama is Her Rock in Rehab

9/20/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Demi Lovato is still in rehab -- nearly 2 months after her overdose -- and one person has put his life on hold to be a constant presence -- Wilmer Valderrama

TMZ has learned Demi quietly transferred from a rehab center on the East Coast to another facility that is world-renowned for its addiction programs. She's been at that facility for more than a month, and Wilmer has flown there several times during visiting days to be with her.

Several people in a nearby town tell TMZ, they've seen Demi and Wilmer at a local Starbucks several times, and it appeared to people in the shop they were boyfriend/girlfriend.

We don't know if they're back together ... what we do know is that Wilmer put everything on hold when Demi almost died from an opioid OD on July 24 and was a constant presence at the hospital, where she spent nearly 2 weeks.

Demi and Wilmer were together for 6 years and split back in 2016.   

As for rehab, the facility offers intensive, long-term treatment for drugs and alcohol and is very much a group program. In fact, Demi was also seen several times at the Starbucks with other patients from the rehab facility. 

Luke Walton I'm Down to Be in 'Space Jam 2'!! ... If Bron Wants Me

9/20/2018 8:48 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The Tune Squad is gonna need a coach ... and who better than LeBron James' coach in real life -- Luke Walton -- to lead the Looney Tunes to victory in the "Space Jam" sequel?!

TMZ Sports asked the Lakers coach if he's down to star alongside LBJ in the highly-anticipated follow-up to the 1996 classic starring Michael Jordan ... and L.W. says he's IN!!!

... as long as LeBron wants him.

It seems like a perfect fit -- after all, the dude had a cameo on "The Young and the Restless" in 2006 ... and Luke's tight with Hollywood big shot Jeffrey Katzenberg (they were leaving Craig's together when we shot Luke last night).

So ... will Bron pick up the phone and call Luke? Who knows? But, one thing's for sure ... you can cross David Blatt off your list.

Sean Patrick Thomas Kylie's Doing it Wrong ... Put Breast Milk on That Cereal!!!

9/20/2018 9:01 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kylie Jenner passing on milk in her cereal makes total sense to Sean Patrick Thomas and Aonika Laurent, but they have a new, healthier, recommendation for her next bowl. 

We got the "Save the Last Dance" star and his wife Wednesday night leaving Craig's in WeHo, and asked if Kylie's no-milk rule -- until this week, she claims -- is unique, or just a thing among millennials. They say it's not uncommon ... their own kids aren't down with the moo juice either. 

SPT had a few explanations for the no-milk trend, but Aonika offered a great alternative -- straight from the boob! Before you shoot it down ... watch the video. Aonika might have a point.

As for kids who avoid milk in cereal to dodge dirty dishes -- these parents have a word of advice. Suck it up and wash a bowl! 

Kaepernick's Attorney Hints Raiders and Pats Interested ... 'Stay Tuned'

9/20/2018 6:34 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Colin Kaepernick and Tom Brady ... on the same team???

That seems to be the suggestion coming from Colin's attorney, Mark Geragos -- who's teasing to TMZ Sports that two NFL teams could be interested in signing the QB. 

"I would just say, 'Stay tuned' ... that next week there may be some news."

Our guy pushed to get more information -- and Geragos started dropping hints about the 2 teams. 

The first clue obviously points to the Oakland Raiders. 

"I'll say this ... if Al Davis was still alive."

The interesting part of that comment -- Al's son, Mark Davis, took over the Raiders when his father passed away ... and Mark recently told us he thought it was a good idea for Nike to sign Kaep. 

The other clue was a little more abstruse, but he suggests Patriots owner Robert Kraft could be interested in Colin. 

There's more to the clip ... Geragos also says Colin and his girlfriend, Nessa, are NOT boycotting the NFL. They're watching games (they're fans) and they're supporting players like Kenny Stills

Geragos also clears up some misinformation about Colin's deal with Nike -- confirming what TMZ Sports already told you ... he is FOR SURE getting his own shoe as part of his deal with the Swoosh.

Katt Williams I'm Heading to 'Build-A-Bitch' ... Looking for a New GF!!!

9/20/2018 7:51 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Katt Williams is giving "cruising the mall for chicks" a whole new meaning.

We got the comedian at the Westfield Mall Wednesday in Culver City -- our photog, Charlie, was also there and happened to bump into him. He had to convince Katt he was a legit TMZ employee.

Anyway, it all got pretty hilarious when Charlie asked what Katt was shopping for in the mall. It wasn't clothes, shoes or accessories. Think Build-A-Bear ... but for adults.

You just gotta see how it played out, especially when some young fans walked up to Katt for a photo. Don't worry, he keeps it clean for the kids.

Katt's ripping a page from Lil Wayne's playbook -- 'cause he ain't got no worries days after getting chased by an angry, gun-toting husband in the ATL.

Waka Flocka Flame NFL Fumbled Halftime ... Performer Should Be Black!!!

9/20/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Waka Flocka Flame is throwing penalty flags at the NFL for choosing Maroon 5 for the halftime performance at this year's Super Bowl in Atlanta, because he believes the performers should be black.

Waka tells TMZ Sports ... he's upset with the NFL's decision to shun the incredibly long list of Atlanta rappers in favor of a more mainstream performer.  

Flocka tells us why Colin Kaepernick's movement could've influenced the halftime show  ... and says the NFL is just plain tone-deaf ... disrespecting so many players and fans. 

Waka gives us his picks for the halftime show ... and how to make the Super Bowl go hard in the paint.

Yasiel Puig Burglarized for the 4th Time ... Photo of Suspect Released

9/19/2018 7:18 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

7:07 PM PT -- LAPD has just released a photo of one of the suspects, captured by Puig's home security system. 

Cops also provided further details, saying the 3 men -- 2 of which are believed to be black males in their early to mid-20s with slim builds -- ransacked Puig's home then located a safe in the second-floor master bedroom. They allegedly dragged it down the stairs through the living room, but fled without it ... leaving it in the doorway.

LAPD claims the suspects caused about $10k in damages. They have no description so far of the third suspect, who was the driver.

The 3 suspects are believed to be the same burglars who hit Puig's house on August 30.

Yasiel Puig really needs to do something about his home security, 'cause he was burglarized yet again -- the 4TH TIME he's been hit ... TMZ Sports has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us cops were called to Puig's San Fernando Valley home Tuesday night around 8 PM after one of the Dodger's assistants got a security alert on his phone, which showed 3 men leaving Puig's property.

Yasiel has a security camera set up that captures motion, and it automatically sends the video to a cell phone programmed to receive it. When Yasiel's associate saw the footage, he immediately called police ... but the bad guys had already fled. 

We're told the men broke in through the back door ... smashing it open. It's unclear at this point if anything was taken.

Yasiel wasn't seen celebrating with his team at Dodger Stadium Tuesday night after their walk-off win against the Rockies, but the game went late ... and he presumably left when he got called about the break-in. 

If you're keeping track ... Yasiel's been burglarized now a total of 4 times. He initially got hit last spring while he was away for spring training, then again during the World Series last year ... and a third time just last month. Our sources say cops aren't sure if the burglaries are connected, but it's clear someone is keeping track of Yasiel's work schedule, 'cause he's never been home.

Time to get a watchdog or something, Yas. That's our advice.

Kylie Jenner Almond Milk Co. Says ... You'll Never Go Dry Again!!!

9/20/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kylie Jenner is about to go from milk-less to milk overload thanks in part to her very public decree over how to drench her cereal.

Jenner sparked the equivalent of a social media riot Tuesday when she tweeted, "last night I had cereal with milk for the first time. life changing." She also posted a series of videos talking about the whole ordeal and even suggested she might get adventurous in her future cereal endeavors, with almond milk.

While Jenner's statement may not have been totally true -- we did some HEAVY Instagram digging -- one almond milk company wants to make sure Kylie's flakes are never dry again.

An Almond Breeze rep tells us the company had actually been preparing to reach out to Kylie to supply her with product ... but Tuesday's cereal video set that plan into high gear.

The rep tells us they're getting ready to ship out a gift package to Kylie ... and you can bet there will be plenty to float her cereal.
